The Union City Our Country lust
week published a long, bitter article
against the actiou of the late congres
sional convention, arraigning the dele
egates who opposed Pierce and using
some very hard language, closing with
a list of nuraea of democrats in Union
City who are opposed to and will not
support the nominee.. If that paper
orjila editor hail much political influ
ence in this district, we might conn
elude that there was considerable op
position to Mr. Glass in the party,
and that his election was in jeopardy;
but w do not think that his fulmina
tious will amount to anything. While
it may be true that a majority of the
democratic votes of the district did
not get their man nominated, yet we
believe they will not allow their dis
appointment to cause them to commit
political suicide by helping to elect
the erratic Etheridge, as Our County
is evidently tryiug to do. Let us
stand up to Mr. Glass like men.
Support the whole ticket, neighbor,
or no part of it, if you are a true
Mr. W. C. Tatom has suspended
the publication of the Dresden Era
and desires to sell the office material.
Ilia paper was one of the brightest
little sheets in the state, and our Dres
den neighbors are very much in their
own light to allow him to suspend for
want of adequate support. Mr. Ta
tom will be connected with the Jack
son Whig hereafter, and we look for
an improvement in that sterling pa
per. Col. John E. Helms, the veteran
editor of the Morristown Gazette,
has retired from the business, drop
ping his mantle on his sons, Jokn E.
aud Arthur, both of whom have had
long and careful training under his
watchful eye. No doubt they will
keep the paper up to it3 high stand
ard of usefulness.
The railroad from McMiunville to
Sparta has been completed and the
Spartans are happy. We guess they
are not hankering after a mandatory
Twenty thousand people turned out
in Louisville Tuesday night to do
honor to Gov. Heudricks. '
Tin? Ripley New, the home) paper
of Col. Ola.", gives him the following
compliineiitry notice, which our read
er should study. We have no doubt
it is every word thj honest belief of
the writer, and pictures Col. Gla.is as
ho is known at home. His town peo
pie guve him a big ratification meet
ing on hearing of his nomination, aud
are enthusiastic iii his support.
The iiomiuee, Col. Glass, is well
and favorably known to our readers.
He bus lieeu a citizen of our county
since 1847, and has at all times pos.
pesMed and exhibited attributes and
qualitins calculated to give him priru
acy among men. The political record
of no one is more unsullied. It is ab
solutely without spot or blemish. He
has been true, not only to his party
and its principles, but to his country,
his State a:i( u, his section. True at
home, true in the halls of the legisla.
tion, and true to his post when war
was flagrant among us. No one has
done mure to develop and sustain the
industrial interests of his county, and
to give wholesome and salutary laws
to the great body of the people of the
State. No one knows better, nor un
derstands more fully, the wants and
needs of the people, and none could
bring to bear more energy, tact and
information in securijg salutary legis
lation. V ithout disparagement, we
believe.no one in the district could
have greater influence at Washington
than Col. Glass. Every class, and
every interest worthy of development
will hud in hini a warm, ardent, and
impartial advocate. The agriculturists
and farmers especially, may rest a
sured that in him they have a neigh
bor and a friend. It would be
almost fratricide for one of this class
of his constituency, even in the remot
est degree to fail in lending him their
support. All other prolesiiorn can
and do take care of themselves. It is
seldom that tillers of the soil have an
opportunity of supporting a candidate
who is peculiarly their champion and
friend and we earnestly solicit each
and every one to come forward and
give him their earnest and undivided
support on the 4th day of November
While Col. Glass received the nom
ination for congress under the majority
rule, Bays the Brownsville States, it
must be understood that upon the
last ballot he received two-thirds of
the vote of the convention. And
when the motion was made to make
it unanimous, there was no special
opposition, Bave from Dyer county.
And, further, all the candidates before
the convention, except Mr. Latta,
who was in his room sick, came
promptly forward aud agreed to sup
port the nominee, and urged their
friends to do the same.
Mnj. Stahlmun and the railroad
commissioners are indulging in a
sharp newspaper war in Nashville,
and Gen. Gordon closed an article
with very strong personal epithets.
We hope the matter will be discussed
in a pleasant manner, and that both
sides will control their feelings.
The St Louis Globe Democrat says
that Cleveland "will discover when
November comes that of all charac
ters in the world the Arneican peopls
have least use for a dummy." The
G. D. didn't talk that way when
Grant, the silent, was its candidate.
Mr. Pierce is supporting Col. Glass
aud his friends will do Him an injustice
if they do not follow his example.
Remember, gentlemen, he will have
another chance two years hence, and
you will make votes for him by sub
mitting gracefully now.
Cleveland seems to be the favorite
with the sports. Numerous large bets
have beeu offered in the cities that he
will be elected president. Every
thing points to a grand victory for the
democracy in November.
Hon. John Y. Keith has beeu
nominated by the democrats of Mad
ison for senator, R. W. Ilaynes for
representative, and D. L. Murrell for
floater. A good team.
The Chattanooga republicans have
had a split over their nominations for
aldermen, and one wing will probably
vote with the democrats.
Several weeks ago the managers of
the Ger.nau Correspondent, of Bal
timore, sent a copy of their paper to
each German paper (145 in all) pub
lished in the states of Ohio, Illinois,
Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin, Nebraska,
Kansas and Minnesota, with whom
they did not already exchange, aud
requested them to do so. All com
plied, and of these, while three-fourths
were formerly republican, not one
favored the election of Blaine. One
publisher some time ago had endeav
ored to effect a sale of his paper to
the democrats of his town, but was
unable to briug (hem to his way of
tbiuking, and then came out solidly
For his work, pushing, and vote in
Congress, James G. Blaine received
aoout 8200,000 of bonds as pay for
his influence. In other words, he
who was sworn to honest service voted
money out of the Treasury to specu
lators, and they gave him a percent
age on what he stole! That is the
exact size of it. A thief for a per
centrge. His claims to honesty cons
sists in his not keeping all he stole !
But the people are robbed all the
same. U. 8. Democrat.
New York Times: Mr. Clevelan I'm
canvass depends for its success on the
support of those who are determined
to have reform; Mr. Blaine's on the
efforts of those who despise and fear
it. Mr. Cleveland's election would
compel the retirement of the class of
jobbers now bo largely represented in
the civil service;' Mr. Blaine's would
insure their retention. The changes
made by the former would be for the
better; those made by the latter would
be for the worse.
