FRIDAY, OCTOBER 0. IBS! UKl'l'lIMU.YNd. THINK. A very largi majority of the dele gates to the County Keptiblican Conven tion on the 10th last., if not all of them, were loprcentailvo men. Tho Repub licans ot the various townships by .send ing those delegates to convention agreed impliedly at least, to trust their interest with them, and, as a unit, to htainl by the result until the last. Now, if tlicy do this, there can bo no doubt us to the prospective roMilt; vis, that ev ery man on the Republican County ticket of Holt county will be elected. Doc it not become nil true Republicans to pursue this course, regardless of the defeat ot person?! friends or men of any particular nationality by the con vention. It is true that a consldeinble portion of our population is (ierman. It is also true that this German element .should be represented on our county ticket And It is equally true that the (Ierman: nave a representation, nun uunti'' (lie past four years they have been very creditably represented. To "holt" now at this stnso of thu ganio becausu the exact man desired was untphi-cd on tho ticket, would not show very stron, fealty to the old standard. It isonr duty as trim Republicans to concentrate whatever power anil intlu cnoc wu may possess upon thu .support of the entire ticket. Tills wu beliuvo to bo the duty of every Republican of whatever race, color, or condition. Rut this is exactly what the Democrats seek to prevent us from doing. And to ac complish their purpose they aru dolni and will continue to do all in their pow er to increase the slight dissatisfaction with tho Republican county ticket in re gai;d to the (Ierman represontatini thereon and thu geographical dislnbu tiou of tiiu nominations, which seem to csist in one or two localities. It would surely bo disgraceful on thu par of Republicans to act. so tbollhh as to 'pander to tills dismal appr.tito" of tli Democrat" by foraking their own cause on grounds personal or of nationality "Wo will do better to accept, without grumbling, tho result of our convention than to kiuk up u rumpus and throw victory into tho hands of the oppoii lion. The defeat of Mr. Zaehnianwns piece of mismanagement on tho part oi )iis friends, nud nothing else. It seems Hint one man is charged with thu defeat of Mr. Daniel Kunkel whether justly so or not wo do in know. Rut suppose the eliargu is tine in every partleiilar.would it bo just and fair for Republicans, Mr. K's friendJ,to opposo tho nominated candidates who had nothing to do wlih ins defeat on that account? This U properly matter for Mi. Kunkel and his friends to jiettlu with that gentleman himself, nn not with Innocent parties. Rut, s betore said, let us nial.e tho charge against him. Then, if it is true, w bvo nn admission of ouo of two facts Unusual power in ono man, or mor tlian ordinary weakness in numy. It wo correctly identify this man who I nld to have created so much mischief. lie was once a Republican candidate and was defeated. He worked for thu suc cess of the Republican ticket two year ago also, notwithstanding there were pn that ticket men who hud previously tried to defeat him. Now, tho geographical distribution of tho nominees, is wo believe, to say tho least, equitable. And wo havo as stron a ticket as was over put in nomination in this county. Neither Oregon or Mound City ought tn complain. If lluchor, Knowles and Richards am all Mound City men, Mound City has a lit tle moro than Oregon. Rut nrolhoy? If they hold citizenship at either of those places it must bo at Oregon. Rut suppose ttiey are Mound City man, there lire some of our county oJllces that Oregon Jus bad the pleasure of N 11 lln-r from her vti mnks almost over slice Hot hu been an organized , county. ! TliN is certainly a lltno when wp should quit our "sectional" and "race" itlhhllug amt stand as firmly to our nominees as do thu "pyramids to Egyp tian sands." We liavu an important Congressional as well as u county fight to maku. anil wc oiinnot afford to irlvo our Democratic brethren an lucii oi vantage ''round." Tut: I'rcx asks why we do not pub- sh tho letter of aceeptarcc of our can- Into for Congress, and especially that pint of hi- letter referring io the lai'ff.

Or the 'c man might reproduce some of those items it published in 1880 about tho Rurnes ring. In " i'dor's Annals of Kansas," is an account of the murder of Thomas W. Rnrbor, while returning to his home near Illoiuiugtou from Lawrence. And Here is what thu Hon. .lames I", Legate said in a speech betore the Old Settler's .Meeting at Lawrence in 1879: 'I am sorry that as a matter of his tiny my friend (iowrnor R ibiuson said lo-iiay unit, Mix or rinrl; sliot I lis voiinu man narnor, iui. ouimiio ot Lawrence lie never shot mm at all. .Jim Rurno wit" a young man full of blood and boll and retains all the hell vet. and was over here with Sheriff Jones' militia. and Major Clark was not the man who shot Rather, but Jim Rurnes was, and was iniiteteii by a pro-slavcrv "rand in ry tor suoonng mm. ntgiit is right.'
