n't trnt Ihe Republicans of Cole county
will give no heed to -the perfidious attempt
that is made by tho Tribune of this week
to nlienate them from their pnrpose to sup
port t.en. hdwnrds for tho Legislature-
result It seeks to accomplish by stirring up
between them and the General the flicker
ing animosities of the war. We knew the
Trilmnc was opposed to the nomination ot
(Jen. Kdwnrds fur Representative, but wo
had no idea that it opposition was
grounded in malice that instead of in
viting all to come forward to his support,
it would endeavor to tnrn a respectable
portion of the voters of the comity against
him. We are sorry in the sincerity of
hearts the 7WAriwhss seen fit to adopt this
mnunor ol electioneering for Gen. fA
wards. We are sorry that In , one para
graph it pmiesset ndherence to the nomi
nation of Gen. Edwards, while In another
it seeks by Insiduons' efforts (o array his
Republican friends against him. Of what
earthly use is it to revive the memories of
the mournful, painful past, nnd recall tho
sad liercavcmenl of the General's family
thirteen years ago. Is ono under heaven.
lest it be the foil-purpose to revive and
perpetuate forever the differences the good
and tnie long since liavo buried and for
got. ' But wo hare the assurance that Gen
Edwards, in no particular whatever, sanc
tions tho Tribune' conrao in lugging into
view these dead and barren issue. It was
an entirely gratuitous proceeding on tbe
Tribune's part,, and its motive reveals It
self too cloarly to bo misunderstood, A
more malignant piece of perfidy was 'never
perpetrated. The only possible Chance to
drive Republicans from the support, of
Gon. Edwards was to hold him up to view
ns a bitter, uncompromising and revenge
ful partisan'. ' Thus his detent,' the prime
purpose ,if tho Tribune, might he neenm
plished and its prayer, answered. :
Lot tint' mir- Republican" friends be dc-
Thr' Demoornits ol'.Cole county,, or nt
least that portion of tlioin who aro not in
hnrmonv with the Tribune and tho ollque
of Wlilch il ls thoi'sch-iin, havo brought,
out.ror wnunty tieprcscJiuitive, to nil mo
vacancy occasioned by MoWorkaian's re
signation; Oen. E. L. Edwards!."' In doing
this, tU we havo beforo said, tliose Demo
crats have reflected credit upon themselves
nnd done tho oounty a service. That Gen
Eilwardawill be eleeted there can scarcely
be atiy donbtj. ' There' is '. ho 1 Up'publicari
candidate against him, and so tarns, we
are able to speak :tlierq will not be, . It is
true there lire suspicions thattha Demo.
cVats who nre disaffected by the General's
nomination would be glad to effect a com
bination with pertain nijuchiuf-luving .Re
publicans for his. defeat. . Hut they will
fail in this. '-The fact Istlie nomination uf

To Ikt Ktlilor of the Slate Javrwtl:
Why-ahooMiho IWftuiM ilc rote one ar
ticle to fclnng-Vio people who Gen. Ed
wards Is, and two articles to convincing
the Hi'pnblicans that they mighf not to
vote for him ? Why does it manifest such
agony because you support him P When
did it hecomo a crime la the eyes of lH;m.
oerats for their candidates' to receive the
I support ftf Republicans a , . , -
. Docs the Tribune dusiro to defeat Gon.
Edwards If- not. whr dues it virtually
tell the people,' 1st. that' Democratic can
didates ought to be regarded with suspic
ion when they aro popular ; 2d., that Ko
psiblicnns can not consistently vote for
Gun. Eilwards Im cuusc of his decided De
mocracy? Ought not Democrats to he
gratified when their candidates aro so
worthy nnd well-miallfled ns to command
the supiort of their opponents ? .
Ioe the Tribune desiro to compel the
Democracy of Cole to herualter select their
worst men for office ? If not, why doos
it now draw such a contrast between those
whom the party lash alone can elect, nnd
those who can command the nnboiight
suffrages of nil parties?
Why, if for Republicans U' vote for
Democrats, is wrong from a Democratic
stand-point, did the senior of the Tribune
make such herculean efforts two years ago
to secure Republican votes for Public
Printer f Why, last winter, did the Tri
bune seek Republican votes for Us public
printing jobs? Will It apply Its doctrine,
this winter, to the public printing jobs,
and refuse a cent from the public treasnry
unless voted exclusively by Democrats ?
- Gen. Edwards deserve the unanimous
support , of the people. His devotion to
the city nnd county is life-long. He is a
lawyer, but his pecuniary interest in farm
ing is cmml to that of any fanner In the
county. At the same timei' his interests
in the city are large, 'and will be promoted
by tho prosperity ot the Capital. Ho is a
man of such character that ho enjoys the
confidence of all. He is a Democrat ,of
the strictest faith, but claiming tolerance
and" respect for' his own opinions, . main
tains that others shall enjoy .the same
privileges." ne b) the reverse of, a dema
gogue When not a candidate, and not
expecting to be, he came forth anA) ad
dressed the trtirkingmen in the largest
meeting ever held In this oity, in advocacy
of their rights, and was chiefly instrumen
tal in having convict labor withdrawn from
competition with honest labor In our eky.
His eminent ability H everywhere con
ceded,, and has rendered hiiu favorably
known throughout the State, He will go
into the Legislature personally Known to
most ot the Senators and members ; and
til wield an influence no other man wo
could semi there would wield.
