Nye Esq., ot' Cass township, this county, called to-day and show ed a sample of his green gage plums He says that his trees had never bore to do any good until two years ago, OB account of the curculio stinging the plum, when it would fall off without ripening. He says he saw wood ashes recommended to be pot around the rootB of the tree to prevent the ravages of the curculio.— He tried it, and has now had two abundant crops from the trees and no curculio. He says he removed the •Od for about two feet all around the body of the tree and then deposited Wood ashes in the cavity about two laches deep and left the trees in this condition. This process he goes through both spring and fall of each year. The specimen plums are large, perfect and delicious. From Thursday's Daily. Rev.

There was a good deal of discus sin' and no small amount of the oth er kind of "cussin" around the Ball tagall House, last evening, in regard to the action of the Democratic Con gressional Convention. Col. Trimble, Weaver's groom, appeared to be par ticularly anxious to smooth the mat ter over, but there were a good many aagry democrats to conciliate, and he had a big contract on his hands. Mrs. Ida J. Dale, wife of James M. Dale of Appanoose county, suicided Oil Friday last, by taking strychnine. She had been married but a short time and appeared unusually happy M| to the day of her death. The Cor mier's jury could find no reason for the rash act.

It will be a surprise to many to learn that Frank Sleeper has gone to Ottumwa, Iowa, to take charge of the erection of a starch ia tory at that place. He has received si handsome offer of stock in a new company, and the management of the factory, and left yesterday to take charge. He will sell his stock in the Elkhart Starch Co., and transfer his home to the new location. Frank's friends here will be sorry to lose him, but he feels that his prospects are excellent there.

THE 8TARCH MILL Will Now be Kuilt 4}uestioit Beyond all Which it Another Big Feather in Ottumwa s Cap. Now We May Well Claim to be the Boss Town of Iowa. We are now authorized to say that the Ottumwa Starch Mill, which we have mentioned heretofore, is one of certainly to be accomplished facts. A company has been formed, of which the following gentlemen arc stock holders S. L. Wiley, Wm. Daggett. John Moore, W. T. Major, Chas. F. Blake, W. T. Harper, J. W. Edgerlv, F. L. Sleeper. The permanent organ ization will not be effected until the first of September, but the company will proceed at once to erect a build ing of 110x90 leet, four stories high, of brick, and it will be fitted up with a complete outfit of the most improv ed machinery for the manufacture of all grades of starch. Contracts are now being let for the erection of the building, and early next week the work will be commenced and prosecuted with the utmost dispatch. The proprietors expect to have the works erected and be prepared to fut nish any quantity of first-class starch during the month of December. Mr. Sleeper, who is to be the super intendent, has had many years of practical experience in starch manu facturing in the East, which gives as surance of the success of the project. II. B. Brown, a professional mill wright, of Elkhart, Ind., will super intend the erection ofthe mill. From the well-known character and ability of the stockholders, we predict for the Ottumwa starch mill a successful and profitable career. The mill will have a capacity of consuming 300 bushels of corn per day and will af ford a sure and profitable market for all the surplus corn raisod in Wa pello county. The mill will be erected on the up per side of Wapello street, just above the pumping works, and will make quite a handsome appearance archi tecturally. "Now, by St. Paul, the work goes bravely on."

Quite a number of the teachers were absent on Monday morning, owing to the fact that many who had returned home on Friday or Satur day previous, could not get to town by half past eight a. m. After the opening exercises the two clasces, A and B, passed to their rooms, class U reciting in (ieography, conducted by H. C. Hollingsworth, and class A reciting in Arithmetic to Miss Bell. We need not tire our readers with the minutia'ofthe whole day's work, for it is very similar to any school exercises, but suffice to say the recitations were good, and we sincerely believe the teacheis Were very imich benefited. Oil Tuesday the regular work was carried on until noon. In the after noon Miss Sarah Harris taught a class of small children, which she had col lected for the purposo of illustrating how she would instruct primary pu pils. She used the word and phonic method combined, and while she la bored under some difficulty, as her class was not well graded, 'still she did well, evincing ability and apt ness to teach. In Physiology Miss Bell had pro cured a beef's heart which was mi nutely examined, thus making book knowledge practical knowledge. A word for our conductors is prob ably due. Prof. A. Hull, ofthe Agen cy City schools, is an old and ener getic teacher although like other men, he mav have his faults, yet he is doing a good work and the teach ers highly appreciate the thoughts they are receiving. Mr. H. C. Hol lingsworth and Miss Beil are young but thorough and active teachers. For the past two days we have had quite a number of visitors. This speaks well we heartily thank theui for thelfpresence and hope they will call again. Directors, patrons and friends, we cordially invite you to come and inspect our work. Seventy-two teachers are now en rolled. By mistake, or base ignorance, we omitted an exercise in our last re port, for which we beg pardon. It was a recitation given by Miss Hill, teacher of the Second Primary grade in the Agency City schools. She chose members ofthe lustitute aB her class, and illustrated how she would conduct a recitation in the Second Reader. Though the members of her class were rather large for this grade and entirely too old to act as chil dren, yet, as she is an old and expe rienced teacher, her work was nobly done. On Wednesday there were soveral teachers absent from roll call. The opening exercises were con ducted by Miss Bell. The recitations in Arithmetic, conducted by Miss Bell, were both profitable and inter esting. Subject, fractions. The subject of the recitations in Geography, conducted by Mr. II. C. Hollingsworth, was water, aud, as there are but few more interesting topics, it was very easy to create great enthusiasm in the classes. He also presented to his History classes an excellent method to be used in chronological, historical, geographi cal and biographical reviews, and recommended that such reviews be used in connection with advanced lessons, as often as convenient. The recitations in Grammar, con ducted by Prof. A. Hull, were excel lent. The subject being presented in a simple and practical manner. In the afternoon Miss Rena Postel conducted a recitation illustrating her method of teaching a class in the Third Reader yet she labored under difficulties similar to those experi enced by Miss Hill, as her claps was composed of young ladies. Miss Pos tel is loo well known by our teachers and the community, to need commen dation here. The recitation in Didactics, con ducted- by Prof. Hull, was somewhat more animated than common. He emphatically claimed that a pro gramme for study was advantageous to both pupils and students, hence, he insisted on teachers making out such programmes for small pupils and causing larger ones to do so for themselves. The question, "How shall we secure a regular attendance in our schools was then discussed, i his is one of the very worst evils in our schools, inasmuch, as teachers cannot reach it, owing to the fact that the difficulty often lies with the parent. We would that parents would think earn estly of this matter and fully realize the great detriment to the child and school by keeping it out even one day of each w eek. In the forenoon, on Thursday, the work was carried on vigorously and all seemed to be alive and active. 91° the afternoon Miss Squire took charge of a class of young iadies for the purpose of illustrating her meth od of conducting a recitation in the Third Reader. The exercise was very good, and she evinced thoroughness, aptness and ability to teach yet we very unich question the propriety o keeping pupils of this age in a stand ing position upon the floor for 15 or 20 miautcs. In physiology Mies Bell gave the chemical experiment to her clashes proving that carbonic acid is breathed forth from the lungs She had also procured an eye, which was very closely examined by one of her class es. She is doing the very beet work possible, for which she deserves much credit. I. F. Jenkins, County Superintend ent of Davis county, was with us for a short time in the evening. Judg ing from the number of terms ho has served his people in this capacity, we believe him to le an active and earn est worker in the cause of education 8 Per Cent Money.

We have taken occasion to find out and lay before our readers something about the dimensions of our mam moth pork-packing establishment now being erected by Messrs.Morrell & Co., of Liverpool, England, under the direction of Mr. T. D. Foster, their general business manager in this country. The pork packing hous will be 90xlt!0 ft. with wingWix48 ft, three stories high above ground. First story (which will be basement, so called,) 10 ft. high 2nd story, 13 ft. high 3d story, 16 ft. high. The roof will have a ventilator of the entire length of the building 4 feet high 32 feet wide. The entire building will be divid ed into a large number of sections, and on all Bides a large number of doors and windows. There will be vats cess pools, Bhutes and boxes for blood, chill rooms and ice boxes of large dimensions. The entire build ing will be on the most improved plan in all respects for a first-class pork packing house and is to be ready for use Nov. 1st, 1878. When we tell our readers that the building will be as high as the side fire wall of "Union Block," Ottumwa, not including the roof and ventilator, they can form some idea of its pro portions. It will be a building that will do do credit to any city and to the ener getic manager of Morrell & Co's bus iness in this city. When the ice hous es, cooper shops, offices, tenements, cribs, etc., which will surround this immense building, are erected, they will form a considerable town of themselves.

It Oare not Nominate. The convention was called to order at 11 a. m. by Col. P. G. Ballingall, Who nominated the Hon. J. C. Cook, of Jasper county, for temporary chair man. Mr. Cook upon taking the chair addressed the convention as follows: GENTLEMEN OF THE CONVENTION We have assembled here to-day in convention to givo expression to* the views and wishes of the. people, the democracy of this district. We are here, not to represent our individual views or preferences, much less our individual interests, but we arc here to act aB representatives ot the party in this district, that goes by the name of democratic, and 1 am glad to sav to you that the time has come when in this nation, and even in this bc uighted state of Iowa, it is no longer a disgrace to a man to be a demo crat. The first thing in order now, in calling together a democratic conven tion is to exteud mv congratulations for the bright prospects ahead of us. Success is in our hands, and our re publican friends, although we sympa thize with them a little, realize it and regret it. In calling this convention to order I wish only to say a few words by way of caution. We may differ in our views as individuals but the first wish of every member should be to harmonize theBc views for the best interests of all are best promoted by the acts of the majority of a con vention. We are here whero there is a little excitement and disagreement in all the political parties of this state Questions may come before us as to what will be the best to do. We aro in the minority in the district. It be comes us to do the best we can under the circumstances. I do not mean by way of looking after the interests of our counties or of ourselves but by looking to the best interests of the Sixth Congressional District. Not that we should lay aside our convic tions as democrats, in any degree, but that we should bo as conservative as possible. Let me say that truth is al ways better than falsehood, in poli tics as in everything else. You never saw a political party succeed unless there was courage and a straightfor ward expression of views in its plat form. Parties may make platforms to catch votes, but it never succeeds, except among our republican friends. They make aasertions and professions in which there is no truth or sinceri ty, and have thus caught many votes, but their falsehood will recoil upon themselves. Let me ask that what there is to be done to-day, be done openly and above-board. Let it be done in good faith and let it be our determina tion that it be faithfully carried out. Let us stand manfully up to it and do it. On motion the following gentle men were chosen as temporary Sec retaries J. H. Stubenrauch, ot Ma rion county, and J. G. Hollingsworth, of Keokuk county. The following gentlemen were named by the various county delega tions as a COMMITTEE ON CREDENTIALS. Jasper County—I) W Tremau. Appanoose—John 11 Williams. Davis—,? (.' Huffman. KeoKufc—H Adams.

Cook in the chair. J. G. Hollingsworth, Secretary read the proceedings of the forenoon session. The committee on credentials not being present, Col. Mackey moved that the convention receive the report of the committee on permanent or ganiz'ition. The Hon. T. O. Walker, of Davis county, raised a point of order, claiming that the convention could not take up any question until its or ganization was perfected by the re reption and adoption of the report of the committee on credentials. The point of order was decided to bo well taken, by the chair. Mr. vValkerand Col. Trimble were then both called on for a speech by perfect din of voices. Mr. Walker took the platform and proceeded to make a speech of some 15 minutes. He said It has not been my province in the years past to make many speeches to democratic conventions. True my voice has been heard in them fre quently, if not oftener, as Josh Bil lings would say, but mostly in the line of organization. I don't desire to talk to you I prefer to listen and learn wisdom from the lips of those who can better instruct you in the line of your political duties or in the line of your political practice, but cannot refrain from saying, inasmuch as you have kindly called upon me for a few words, that I hold it to be the duty of the democratic party not only in this congressional district but in the State of Iowa as well, to follow such practice as will place us thor oughly in line with the great demo cratic party of tho Union. I desire for myself that the democratic party of the Sixth district shall be ready when the long roll shall sound in 1880 to announce with its thousands of voices, "here," when the wagon drives forward aud we are asked to get on board and go forward in.the line of victory. Why should we not There aro many of us here who have bowed under defeat year after yoar, with hearts undismayed by that de feat, and have risen gloriously al though crushed under overwhelming numbers, and have again and again marched forward, deserving, if not securing victory. 1 only ask on be half of myself, and I think that in eo asking I voice the sentiment of the entire Sixth district, that whatever shall be done to-day shall be done with a view to preserving intact our organization—with a view to keeping every member of the democratic par ty—not only keeping every man, but keeping him because he likes to be there and not as a matter of policy or to please some other man. We can take cheer to ourselves, not only in the Sixth district but in the State at large, because we see the republican hosts melting away day by day. We see democratic majorities speaking in tones that cannot be misunderstood, that in 1880 we shall see that banner that floated so gloriously to success in law, but not in fact in 1876, we shall then carry that flag forward to victo ry more potent and powerful than in 1876, In that it will be a victory that cannot be wrested from us. I say and believe this, because the Ameri can people will not sit down calmly and submit to the degradation of the nation a second time. I believe this, because the people of the different States have spoken. In every case where there was a chance for the bal ance to be swayed, where politics were divided BO equally that a pre ponderance in one scale might possi bly be overbalanced, then the princi pies of the democratic party havo pre vailed. Our Southern sister states are send ing up to us from each succeeding election tones of cheer that tell us that in 1880 they will be with us and with the democracy of the country. Ohio is no longer uncertain. In California it is not a matter of doubt. Oregon has spoken in tones that cannot be mistaken. So I say to you my fellow democrats, that knowing that there shall come to us at the next presiden tial election, this victory which is as sured to us not only from the signs of the times but because we know that the next Senate of the United States is in democratic hands: because we have reason to believe—and not only that, but m|on»ble kaowI®4fe that causes us to believe—to know that the next house of representatives will be democratic likewise. We have these things to speak to the peo ple and tell them that the democratic party are in the ascendency. Take in connection with this the States that have given in their adhesion to dem ocratic policv and it leads me to be lieve that in 1880 we shall have a dem ocratic victory of which we need not be ashamed. It would not be wise for me to speak to you touching the policy that will be pursued bv this convention in the matter of its reso lutions because that matter has been referred to your committee and that committee has met and transact ed its business harmoniously agreed unanimously upon a platform, and I think they have adopted one that will be unanimously approved by the con vention. My desire i* that if this convention, in its wisdom, shall see fit to select a candidate to carry our banner in the coming contest, that lie shall be one who will carry that ban ner firmly and uuswcrvinglv upon democratic principles. Col. Trimble was called out and made what may be properly termed a wild communistic speech. lie said MR. PRESIDENT, AND MEMBERS OF THE CONVENTION I shall notattempt to make a speech to you. I would like very much to do so if I had plen ty of time to do it in my way. But it could not be expected that I should talk to you more than five or ten minutes and that is too short a time in which to discuss political ques tions. There are one or two suggestions, howev. r, which I will make to you. We have met here to-day for the purposo of discharging a duty to the democratic party of the Sixth Con gressional District. Now, personally, I propose to be satisfied with any thing that this con vention does. Whatever it does will be personally satisfactory to me. I mean to make it so. i mean to be satisfied with it, and I hope that we will ail try to do the same thing. The purposo of meeting together, to-day, is to settle any question of personal preference or difference. That should be done in the spirit of charity, and good feeling. We all have our differ ent opinions, but let them bo settled by the judgment of this bodv, and with that settlement let ue be satis fied, whatever it may be. Let us carry away no ill feeling. Lot us have no unpleasant controversies. It is a business matter and should be settled on business principles. It would bo improper for me to suggest any course of action. I only want you.to come in aBpirit of harmony and good feeling and charity, deter mining each one to be satisfied with what the convention may determine to do. For I take it that none of us possess aB much wisdom as this whole body together. The associated judg ment of this body will embody'more wisdom, I am satisfied, than is pos sessed by any one member. For me I am satisfied to concede that judg ment. If it sees proper to adjourn without making any nomination it will certainly be satisfactory to me If it makes one I will be satisfied. I propose to be satisfied with any gentleman that this convention sees proper to select to carry its banner in the coming campaign. There are great questions to bo set tled in the coming campaign great financial questions. The democratic party ten years ago, in 1868, had the pleasure of discussing these questions but our republican friends would not listen. We were not able to make them listen. They persisted in flaunt ing the bloody shirt and ignoring all other issues. But within the last two or three years a change has come over the people. They have determined that if the leaders of the republican party will not discuss financial ques tions they will do it themselves. For thofirst timein the history ofthe par ty they have sent out men to discuss the money question. Heretofore they have simply flung the bloody shirt in our faces whenever we have spoken of anything connected with the finances of the country. No mat ter what democrats have said hereto fore, the responso has been always, to shake the bloody shirt in our faces and tell the republican rank and file that we were copperheads and trait ors, and unworthy of confidence. But they have been compelled by the uprising of the people to change their tactics and although they raised the bloody shirt at the convention at Des Moines, it is still born. It died when it came into existence there. They are now discussing finance. Their great men, like Dr. Beardsley and others, have been compelled to discuss finan cial questions. When they have dis cussed those questions and tho people understand tbeni, they will go to the wall. The people have made up their minds that the old silver dollar,which was the money of our fatln-rs, shall not be destroyed thattiie $80,00U,000 that are yearly dug out of our moun tains shall be given to our people for the purpose of bringing prosperity to the nation. They havp resolved that there shall be no more iutorest bear ing obligations of the government that we wont put any more interest in gold or silver or paper currency that the currency of this nation must be a currency on which the nation pays no interest. BJNKS, TRAMPS, ETC. The people havo determined that the desiinies of the country shall not be controlled by two thousand cor porations working in their own inter ests that we shall havo no more pri vate corporations controlling the des tinies of the government. Let them be controlled by tho government, and if the officers of the government do not control them to satisfy us wo will turn them off and hire them over again. Thank God that the spirit of the times is changing, and that we are prepared and anxious to discusB these questions in which we are all so deeply interested. Let the hard times continue a little while longer and what will be the result Tho popu lation of tramps will bo increasod. The people thrown out of employ ment, who constitute tho army of tramps will bo increasod by tho hard times. The result will be discontent and uprising on tho part of the la boring population. Threats and per haps violence will be the final resnlt. Then you will see tho men who have precipitated these bard times by plundering the treasury of tho nation, by legislating in their own interests and against the interests of the peo pie—you will hear them talk about Grant and peace," which means Grant and a standing army. They will make this very suffering a pre text for a military government. They will say to the people, "Do you see the army of tramps? We must havo a strong government. Give us Grant and peace"—that is, give us Grant and a military power to crnsh out this spirit of discontent. My remedy is, let us make the times good again. Reduce the taxes and bring back prosperous times set the wheels of industry in motion again and then you will need no standing army,you can take care of yourselves that is the proper course to pursue to restore prosperity to America. Our republican friends tell tia there is too much over production that when we set these three millions of tramps to work, it will rnin the coun try, don't you see There will be so much more over production. I say there is under consumption the peo ple are not able to buy. All you want is to set the industry of "t he country to work again. Then you will find that there arc plenty of men to buy. You will find this army of tramps will fade away again. Five years ago there were no tramps. Do you believe that the nation can be BO suddenly demoralized without any cause. The tramps are a legitimate outgrowth of the repub lican policy. The contraction ofthe currency and the consequent reduc tion of prices. It must occur to ev ery gentleman that if you put the country upon a continuous contraction of the currency, that any gentleman who has any money, will refuse to invest that money, knowing that it mnst be a losing business. That is why millions of men have been thrown out of employment, because the government has inaugurated con traction for the purpose of getting back to resumption. People say, 3ont invest because prices are falling if you invest now you will have to sell on a falling mar ket and lose money. Some factories are closed and our mines are deserted, and we havo an army of tramps. These men—these laboring men— these tramps become desperate be cause they have no way to support their families. Then they are thieves then they are robbers—then they are tramps. So soon as you satisfy the enterprising men of the nation that there are to be no longer falling price* and that men can safely invest at present prices and have some as surance that they will not have to sell out at felling prices, you will see this army of tramps fade away like mist before the morning sun. The committee on credentials made a report giving the counties the fol lowing representation: Appanoose 6, Davis 7, Jasper 7, Keokuk 9, Mahaska 6, Marlon 10, Monroe 6. And the committee re ported to the convention that accord ing to the call Wapello county had 6 votes, but the committeo recommend ed that the convention take into con sideration the claim of Wapello coun ty to 9 votes instead of 6. J. M. Peck, of Wapello, moved that tho report of the convention be adop ted. Col. Mackey, of Keokuk county, moved that the report be so amended that Wapello county have 6 votes. Col. Mackey made a pointed speech in favor of his amendment—it was lost. A vote was then ttken on the adop tion ofthe report of the committee, with the understanding that it gave Wapello county 9 votes. The vote by counties stood as fol lows: For the adoption ofthe report, Ap panoose 6, Davis 2, JasperG, Mahaska 2, Marion 10, Monroe C, Wapello 6. Total 39. Against, Davis 5, Jasper 1, Keokuk 9, Mahaska 4. Total 19. The chair announced the report adopted, and Wapello county enti tled to 9 votes. The report on permanent organiza tions mas then made. This report recommended for pcrmaneut officers the temporary oflicers of the conven tion—report adopted. T. O. Walker then made a roport as chairman of tho committee on resolu tions. It amounted to simply an en dorsement of the State platform. Tho report was adopted. Col. Cyrus II. Mackey, of Keokuk county, then moved that the Conven tion proceed to an informal ballot for the nomination of a candidate for Congress. Hon. J. L. McCormack, of Knox ville, moved as a substitute the fol lowing resolution: Resolved, That in the opinion of this Convention we deem it inexpedi ent to nominate a candidate for Con gress to be voted for in this District at the coming election. Here the war which had been brew ing commenced in dead earnest. The menagerie entered upon its most brilliant act, and the house came down in peals of merriment. The following is the verbatim his tory of the proceedings ofthe conven tion in regard to the contest as to how Davis county should vote on the resolution of McCormack, declaring it to be the sense of the convention that it should make no nomination Mr. I. Keister, the chairman of the Davis county delegation cast the vote of that county against the resolution whereupon Hon. II. II. Trimble arose and said that he knew of no authori ty by which his vote was thus summa rily disposed of, and that he intended to vote for himself and to cast his vote in favor of the resolution, whereupon Mr. Walker said: At the convention of Davis county which appointed this delegation, the following resolution was passed "Resolved, That the delegation from Davis count}* to the Congres sional and Judicial Conventions are hereby instructed to vote against all propositions tending either to pledge the support of democrats to the can didates of other parties or to leave the ticket vacant." Lender that resolution I hold that the Chairman of this delegation has the right and is bound to give seven votes against leaving the position va cant. Col. Mackey moved that tho vote be recorded as announced by the chairman of the delegation from' Davis county, ignoring the voice of the gentleman who had objected. Mr. Trimble then said, "My opin ion is that each delegate is responsi ble for the manner iu which he casts his vote here, to his own constituen cy, and that is what I propose to do, so far as 1 am concerned if permitted by this contention. 1 do not own any great number of tho democracy of Davis county. I do not own 1200 of them—but 1 think I own myself, and I propose to cast my vote, if the con vention will let me, as I think for the best interests ot the democracy of Davis county. I don't know why gentlemen from other counties should undertake to assume any responsibil ity as to how I perform my duties. The resolution is not that the whole vote shall be cast one way. I pro pose to go homo and conviueo my constituents, if I can, th*t I acted wisely. If I cannot do it, it is my misfortune and no one else's business. I am perfectly ready to take the res ponsibility. If my constituents are not satisfied that is my bad luck. Another member of the Davis Co delegation said, 'I do not just know who authorized the chairman of this delegation to cast my vote. I was never asked whether I was going to vote for tho resolution or against it. Under the instructions I shall vote as tho chairman announced, but I don't believe it is the best thing I can do. After that vote if there are any more votes here I shall vote as I please." Mr. Walker, chairman of the Davis county delegation, now said "I have no objection to any gentle man casting his vote as he pleases and let his constituents be the judge of the correctness of his action, but the gentleman who first spoke (Co). Trimble) has no constituency except by proxy. The democrats of Davis county did not select him aa a dele gate. Having no constituency be hind him it is a very easy matter for him to satisfy his constituents." Walker's remarks created immense applause. Hon. H. H. Trimble now went up on the platform so as to face the whole convention and the numerous specta tors, and said It is very true that I was not select ed by the convention of Davis Co., as a delegate. It is very well known that I endorsed the utterances of the Cedar Rapids convention, which hap pens to be somewhat, greenback. Finding that I was absent they found it very convenient to leave me off that delegation. But they appointed Mr. Hotchkisa and Mr. Henson who both agree with me. Mr. Hotchkiss gave me his proxy and told me he sympa thized with me and told me to vote for him if I came here. I don't have quite so many constituents as my brother Walker but thank God I own myself. I have known the people there for 28 years and I am not afraid to go back there and tell them what I have done, and I have no doubt of their endorsing it. In the course of the general melee, Cory, of Wapello county, charged Col. Mackey, of Keokuk, with saying that Keokuk county would give Sampson 3,000 majority. The Col. replied that he had placed a condition to that, viz that if this convention cut off the head of the ticket and they must choose between republicans,they would vote for Sampson, and amidst these colloquys the friends of either party made the hall ring with cheers. Mr. Hollingsworth raised a point of order as to the propriety of the convention going behind the instruc tions of the County Convention to its delegates, which was quietly ignored by the chairmau and the question put on tho resolution as to whether the full vote of Davis county should be cast by the chairman or individual delegates be allowed to vote, when it was decided by vote of the conven tion that each member be allowed to vote. The following was the vote: Por the resolution, Appanoose, 6, Davis 1, Jasper 5, Mahaska 2, Marion 10, Monroe 5, Wapello 9. Total 36. Against the revolution, Davis (!, Jasper 2, Keokuk 9, Mahaska 4, Mon roe 1. Total 22. The chair declared tho resolution carried. The following Central Committee vai appointed S. L. Hearn, Ap- panoose county ,T. Keister, Davis C. A. Carr, Jasper 8. L. Fonda, Keokuk Byron It. SeeVers, of Ma haska J. L. McCormack, of Marion James Hilton, of Monroe, and S. B. Evans, of Wapello. Tho Convention .then adjourned. Dyapepalai Daapepalal Dyspepsia! DyaptpsU is the moil perplexing of All human al meow.
