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:

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

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

Mound City ought tn complain. If
