Mr. It. K.

Mr. A. did not tell this as a joke, but as a fact, and bis verac ity stands iim)Uestioned. This strange phenomena is the second of the kind ever known in this1 country. In Augusta, (la., was a similar occurrence, a month or so , ! ago. .Monday the few ex-greenback , leaders, as per previous call, met at the Com t House to install the union labor party in place of de funct greenbaekism. There were one or two accredited township delegations, and the convention was made up of stragglers pres ent from nine of the I'J townships, llobiusou ami lvauawuh of Emmet were seleoted,as chairman and sec retary, of the meeting. A county central committee was selected, from the nine townships represen ted, one from each, save -Missouri township,.which was given two, after considerable dissent ion. This gives Ibis double power, and with tlie arch schemers, .tones and Pittman, as committeemen, more power still; no wonder there was kicking. Parson Hitt was made a committeeman from Red laud—thus mixing preachers and politicians. Good Record.
