sustainerl the principle necessary for the
unity ami harmony of the San Francisco

Moore, who was an t Ik lit fellow eold'er,
according to the Nntioual. would have de
feated that eminently tcc .--iry principle
for said sustenance of said party. For the
Democratic party of Nevada county we must
say that the Sun Franci-oo National is wrong.
The election or defeat of Stratton or Moore
sustains or demolishes no y.rincij le enter
tained by Nevada County Democracy. Wc
hid hoped that the Democratic party de
pended for welfare and unity on no p-tly
election to islain essential principles. We
bad hoped that one Democrat's election to
position, endorsed the Administration »<
much as the election of another Democrat. —
We verily hcliev "d that a man who had stood
by the pool and evil fortunes of the Demo
cratic party before and ever since California
was a State, could not ri bulte that party in
his advancement to position. *• Rut the A 1
ministration must he endorsed ." This was
done by the people of the State when the
Legislature was elected, and to make that
endorsement complete there was no need of
Administration forces rallying around one
man more than another when the Democracy
of both w ere undoubted. The people said
the Administration was right, nnd th" As
sembly election of a man to the brief office
of Speaker did not add force or emphasis to
the people'- assertion. The truth is that the
election of Speaker was made occasion for a
Senatorial issue. The is-me was not mail ■
in caucus, tint was urged outside. It was
announced that Mr. Moore was a Weller man

Stratton's electom was the way to emir,r.-o
the Administration cnpliati ally, why did
not his friends so a.-.- rt it at first ? Wh* r -
was the use of trying to j lace Mr. .Moore in
a false position ?

candidate f r position is a friend of that
Democrat and using that atierlimi -not
truth —as a r a-on for the defeat of that can
didate, before the issue is prop* rly present

The assertion that a Senatorial issue was
made will tie denied, and the caucus resolu

bill that the ••cat did jump that way" in

is true ami cannot be denied.

lion. W. C. Stratton, of I’lacer, has be*n
' selected to preside over tli>' deliberations ol
the Assembly during the present seas ion of
the Legislature. II» succeeded in obtaining
llio nomination of the Democratic caucus on
Monday night la«t, hy a vote of thirty-three
to twenty', mat in favor of lion. I’hil. Moore,
of Nevada. It wa> well known, prior to
that night, that such nomination war rquiv.
ah nt to un election, tind every honorable el
fort wns made hy the friends of tie different
aspirants to secure a majority of the demo
cratic members, composing th - caucus. I»u
ring the earlier yorlion of the contest. lion,
f. It. Street, of Shasta, and I’. It. Kills of
u'a. rumen to, were engaged In tl. struggle,
t .'ch supported hy a few friends, hul towards
die conclusion it was clearly perceptible
that the choice was to be ninde between
Stratton and Moore.
To the latter no well founded objection
could h-raised. Having already served two
sessions, hi* experience fully qualified him
for the position which lie sought. Iff remar
kably ph asing personal appearance, great
suavity of demeanor, anil fascinating social
attributes, jt was inevitable that should he
he chosen he would unquestionably Ih- a
ino-t popular presiding officer. besides
these qualities rendering 1 ini a favorite, his
d cti rmilied Opposition to every species of
political chicanery, his ferocious 1 -.trod and
denunciation of Broderick and his gang,
even while that vile herd aspired to. mill
claim"d h-ascendency in Nevada (Yunly,
where h resided, had endeared him not on
ly lo Hi- people of that (\*iinly. hut to the
democracy of ti e State, w herever his course
was observed. Iiis stand in the controver
sy la tween Mr. Douglas anil the Dr-blent
was unequivocal. Hi was fully committed
to the support of the latter. I'nd- r these
circumstance*, it may lie easily perceived,
that none of his eoni| ctetor* f r tie-Speak
ership could attain an easy victory.
Tocounterhalonc trhese advantages, Mr.
•Stratton presented equal political iXpert*
once, nnd equal personal excellencies. Of
prepossirg manners and exterior, h- enm
hincs with great native politeness, mental
resolution iri an eminent degree. In addi
tion (and it was on this point that his ad
herent* claimed hi* priiicipl" precedence of
Mr. Moore) he had. at the last session ol the
Legislature, originated and strenuously ad
vocated the ndoption of those famous Le
compton Resolutions, which furnished such
ample pi oof of the devotion of the Democ
racy of California, lo the Administration of
Mr. Ilucbanan.
Every rending man hi familiar tvitil th*
history of those Resolutions. Introduced at
a tiir.- wiicn it was universally believed that
the admirers of Mr. Ibunglas were numeri
cally os four to one in our Legislature a
gainst thorn, they pnuiut d un !er the cmi
sideration of that horly. upheld hy tie earn
est advocacy of their author and hi* associ
ate*. until th-- truth of the principles enun
ciated in them, so appealed to the patriotism
of ail good democrats tint they wt-r- pa--
soil hy a handsome majority.
Mr. Stratton had much to do with this rc
suit, and as a consequence he had no si ght
claim upon the goodwill of the Administra
tion Democrats. While all such hailed Mr.
Moore a« an efficient and gallant fellow sol
dier. in the same ranks, enlisted in the same
cause, they considered that ns leader of what
was nt one time deemed a ••forlorn hope,"
Mr. Stratton mas entitled to th-ir first re
gard. In short, the selection of Mr. S. was
a more cordial and thorough endorsement
and approval of tke policy of the Adminis
tration on the I.rcomptoii question, than
that of Mr. M could have I en. Mainly lor
tin* reason the former was chosen. A prin
ciple was involved which it was eminently
necessary for the welfare and unity of our
party should he sustained and it was sus
tain- -I
While congratulating Mr. Stratton upon
his success, and the members of the Assem
bly upon th-ir happy choice of a Speaker,
we fiel assured that Mr. Moore and his
friends will shortly, (if they do not already)
perceive the necessity for Hie course pursu
ed l>y the majority, and we are well satisfied
that tile must hunnrablr defeat of Mr. M.
will not militate against him in the future
with the staunch and well tried democracy
of Nevada. [A. .Wittuna/. Jitti u.

two hostile portions of our country endeavor
to cripple and injure each other. Suppose
we succeed in convincing the South ol their

“ We trnst that his recent defeat will not.

The Democrat trusts very sensibly. The
