Thomas, jr., of the County Democratic Executive Committee, has issued a call for a meeting of the committee at Cam den, Saturday, February 15, which is to-morrow week. As there is important business to bo transact ed, he urges upon committeemen the importance of a full attendance of committee. Abide from filling vacancies, the committees will take action in the matter of nominating a ticket for county offices. Anent the discussion as to the "best policy of nominating a ticket, and in view of tho fact that there is so little timo intervening for dis cussing the matter before the meet ing of the County Democratic Ex ecutive Committee, it is suggested, and we are inclined to believe that the suggestion is very timely, for the committee to call a mass con vention of Democrats and discuss the matter fully before taking final action in the. matter of nominating a ticket for county offices. United action is wanted, and. tho commit tee should weigh the matter well to the end that we may have united action, which is necessary to suc cess. "We would like to call the atten tion of our readers to an advertise ment which appears elsewhere in our columns concerning a special -clubbing arrangement -which we have just concluded with tho Wash ington Weekly Post. Wo have long felt the need of more direct communication with the doings of our lawmakers at Washington, and the advantages offered by such a strictly non-partisan paper as the Post .ought not to be neglected. 'The Post criticises all parties im partially and makes no attempt to cater to mere partisan prejudice, believing that every patriotic citi- zen desires to get his information uncolored by such prejudice. The political pot is beginning to boil, and the indications are that the year lb will be naught with some verv lively political battles. In consequence of the spirit of dis quietude that is now pervading the ranks of all parties, it is eminently necessary to select men for offices "this year in whom confidence can be reposed. The Chronicle notes with pleasure the desire of a large number of its exchanges and promi nent Democrats that the lion, lorn 0. Rye, of this county, enter the race for Congressman from this district. Mr. Ttye has devoted his entire public life to the interest of the Democratic party, and we want to say that we believe that there is not a Democrat in the Eighth Con gressional District who Is more favorably known, and who will be able to command a larger vote than he. His reputation as a politician is unstained and stands out in com mendable and enviable contrast to that of the average office seeker. He is a young man of acknowledg--,ed ability, and as an orator and de bater his antagonists in canvass iand legislative halls would find -in .him a foe worthy of their steel.'
