Whether or not a convention will to held in this county we Havo not Learned but we do know that the general sentiment of our voters is for Tho re nomination of Hon. L. Ii. Wollor and such being the Case a delegation favourable to Liim will doubtless to sent from Alla Makee to Deborah on june 10. Clayton county is also solid for Liim and from what we learn Tho democrats of lilo entire District Are almost unanimous for Hin. They argue everywhere Weller caucuses with us in Congress voted for Carlisle has stood and voted with democrats for All party measures and Tariff Reform. What More could any demo1-Oral do Liy All usage and precedent he is entitled to a second we have spoken plainly on this matter Boi Oro and will now Only reiterate that the journal is for the Man who can beat the Republican nominee and Weller seems to to the Only available and unobjectionable candidate As yet Alla Makee journal o. B. His Hio Xii w. B. Mead j. F. Babcook w. R. Eno w. H. New Meux d. F. Moab Tbs con. Com. The two articles of Bon Butler s on Metal Money and greenbacks found in another column ought to satisfy the most sceptical As to Ben s position on the currency question. A Geo. W. Haigh Secretary of the Minnesota state Farmers Alliance nuo Noeb that Hon. L Donnelly of Decota county Minnesota will address the Farmers at the Mankato meeting. Let there a general turn out As it will a treat. Tvs president s son Allan Arthur was engaged to miss Crowley daughter of sex congressman Dick Crowley of lock port n. Y., a year ago. But to broke the engagement which so mortified Tho Young lady that she never recovered fell ill consumption setting in and finally did on last sunday Gen. Weaver and col. Jesse Harper Are waging an aggressive Greenback Campaign in Indiana against the National Banks. As the democracy 7 will labor in a Harmon ions Effort with the Fiat Isle this year the contest a jul whether Tho National banking system shall go or stay. This will a Plain Issue and will have to to . In Tho last Twenty Yoars the government has paid for iut Crest on the Public debt Tho enormous film of 2,089,000,000, a sum which would defray All the expenses of Tho gov. Ornament excepting interest on the Public debt for nearly ninety nine years to come at Tho present rate of expenditure and for nearly thirty five years if expenses could to limited to what they were in 1860.-n. Justice. Or. Weller is very a Gallant. To makes his wife the scape Goat for the odium to incurred his course in the Peelle English election Case. We very often hear of a person going out to see a Man but Seldom if Over to Seo his wife. Hawkeye. That s so. Congressman Kabson for instance was not accused of going out to Seo his wife is Weller was it was another fellow s wife. Dubuque Herald. Eminently fitting. The Soleo Tion of John Tyler As temporary chairman of Tho National Greenback convention at Indianapolis was a deserved compliment to Tho son of the Only president of the United states that Ever officially recommended a financial policy for Tho government embracing in us toners Al scope Tho fundamental principles of Tho Greenback party. Had thu exchequer Bil which was presented to Congress through Tho recommendation of president Tyler received that favourable consideration which its merits deserved Tho business interests of Tho country would have Boon placed upon a More solid and permanent foundation and the schemes of Tho shylock usurers and panic Breeding speculators would have had no Field in which to carry on their nefarious operations. Had Tyler s exchequer measure Ocomo Tho fixed financial policy of the nation with such essential modified Lions and changes As. Wisdom and circumstances would have been Dio rated its provisions would Havo been amply to have met the monetary Mergo icy which the Rob Ollion inaugurated and Tho nation would not now staggering under a burdensome interest bearing debt nor cursed with a Bond holding autocracy but the Money Power of Europe and America combined then As now to prevent any legislation looking to the emancipation of labor and bust Hobs from Tho Thra Dom imposed shylock tyrants and hence his Wise and statuary measure was throttled financial abortionists and the avaricious Money Power entombed it with reforms that Havo struggled for existence. After nearly fifty years of financial wrong and oppression resulting from Tho defeat of Tyler s exchequer scheme it seems peculiarly appropriate that the worthy son of this statesmanlike sire should called to preside Over the deliberations of an important National convention convened for the authoring measures in Harmony with those advocated his illustrious father before the British fiscal system had become the table Hod financial policy of this government. Benjamin f. Butler. It is with Tho greatest pleasure that we this week place at Tho head of our editorial columns the Nemo of Gen. Benjamin f. Butler of Massachusetts As candidate for president and the name of Gen. A. M. Wast of Mississippi As candidate for vice president. Gen. Butler is our first and Only Ohio of for president. 1. Because he is a Man of proved executive ability. The annals of american history do not record his equal in that particular As his mar velour successes in systematizing and regulating the government of Tho City of new Orleans when the head Center of rebellion abundantly demonstrates. 2. Because he is a Man of just and generous instincts. His heart beats in unison with the Humble though himself a millionaire of Largo i proportions. The weak Tho needy the oppressed Havo Over found in Ben Butler a True Friend and Able Helper As the factory girls of Lowell the soldiers fighting for a restored Union the homeless Emigrant and Tho friendless pauper All testify. 3. Because to possesses that Broad and comprehensive mind which grasps As intuition the f a Damon Tal principles of True statesmanship tints eminently fitting him for a loader in Tho Way of National Progress. The above leading traits in the general make up and Char act or of Benjamin f. Butler Are so largely and harmoniously developed that should he to elected president we May Export his administration to Excel in Beneficence and True glory any that Havo preceded it. In fact he Soems to a born governor and to possess thobe Manly attributes which have Evor earned for their fortunate possessor the appellation of great and which but one or two in a Century take the world Over Ever attain. A Patriot a hero a philanthropist it is in Honor to the nation that to should named As a candidate for president. Happy indeed will our people to if for once they can turn from the prejudices and animosities of Twenty years and elect Benjamin f. Butler As a people s president. A sii Noton letter Washington d. A May 80, 84. One of the Stalwart sheets of the Republican party the Chicago inter Ocean prints Tho following in its is Ito of May Loti calamity Wellmet s mischief there has been a Bill before Tho House for some time to appropriate a fund $10,000 for their entertainment meaning the siamese embassy but under the rules one objection is sufficient to prevent its consideration and calamity Weller of Jowa Lias taken it upon himself to make that objection. " no appeals no inducements will persuade him to let Tho Bill go Good for Wollor then again to is called calamity Weller because in his speeches he invariably predicts that a great calamity will overtake the government if his theories of government Are not Tho same Day the news fire slide Over the wires that senator Sabin of Minnesota the present chairman of the National Republican committee had failed with liabilities amounting to $1,750,000. This failure of the head of the Republican party had been preceded the break aug of one of their pet institutions the Marine National Bank of new York City and the failure of the would like to to president for life a. 8. Grant who lost nearly it million dollars in speculating with other Peoples Money. Immediately after these failures had occurred the Ory went up from the Dens on Wall Street Stop the panic prevent contraction of currency pass the Mcpherson and the Dingley Bill help the Banks Roth the Senate in the House tile agents of Liat monster known As the National banking system argued that to prevent a contraction of the currency and a general panic Congress must allow the National Banks to inflate their credit. Tho same arguments Trtat. Have Beon Majjie currency reformers during the past ten years Are now taken up the advocates of the Banks on the floor of Congress namely a contraction in the volume of Money will lower prices and pro Duce a panic. A proper inflating of the currency a proportion to the Iffe Rease of population and business will prevent1 a fall in the prices and consequently prevent a panic the difference Between currency reformers and National Bank advocates has come Down to this the former demands that the general government shall use its constitutional Power to Issue All Money and make the same a Legal tender for All debts Public and private and regulate the volume of Money for the general welfare of the whole the latter demands that the government shall have Power to make Gold and Silver some Sny Only Gold Legal tender for the payment of debts and allow the National Banks to Issue All the paper currency of Tho country and say How much or How Little the people of the United states shall have to transact the business of the All political parties now agree that a contraction of the volume of Money always produces a congressman Weller and All who know anything of fun Uncial Economy said so years ago. There will a panic if no provision is made to prevent n relative contraction of the volume of Money says Dingley of Maine in Tho House and Mcpherson of new Jersey in the Senate. That s True says congressman Weller and every other currency reformer. Allow Tho National Banks Lji-10,-000,000 More on their Bonds increase their credit so they May Aid the paralysed business inter ests of the country says Tho advocate of Tho National Bank. Pay the bonded debt Issue Treasury notes Savo Tho interest on the Bonds Issue sufficient Money Treasury notes to Supply the demands of the country make every kind of Money equal before the Law a Legal tender for All debts Public and private issued directly the government a provided Tho Constitution of the a says congressman Weller and every other anti monopolist and Lover of Liberty in and outside of Congress. And because the Noble representative from Tho fourth Iowa District stands labors for nay tights for the interests of what these High toned gentlemen term Tho common people because he objects to every steal and class legislation in the interests of Rich monopolists and soulless corporations because he is Tho True servant of the people every hireling of the Confederate monopolies is striving to belittle misrepresent slander and defeat him. Several times they have attacked him but every time to did get oven and More than even with his antagonist. On thursday last another attack was made the manipulators and misrepresent Ativo on the Republican Side of the House. This time they aimed at the Honor and Good name of Iowa s fearless Champion of Tho Peoples rights 1 say they aimed at his Honor like a conspirator or Assassin Aims at the life of his victim. But their daggers their insinuations did not harm As intended the Farmer representative vindicated himself amid Tho thundering applause of an overwhelming majority of the members of the House of representatives. Right and Honor combined with Manly courage May assailed but never can crushed. The congressional record of this Day Page 41 87 and 3948, contains the vindication of Hon. L. H. Weller Tho greatest calamity to Republican g. A. R. With the King s Imago As Tho Standard which to measure Tho property and Industry of Tho new Republic. It was a grevious fault and previously have their children flu stored it. Great Wiso and Good men we Marvel that they saw so much but Thoy saw not All because of their eng rafting upon our institutions this Ono element of kingly Power we their descendants mid our but iness and our property nay almost our existence As a nation have been placed at the mercy of the moneyed Powers of the Faith. And most important vote for no Man on any party ticket unless you Are absolutely certain they Are Friendly to your interests and the interest of Tho people taken As a whole. Gen. Butlein on Money.

The supporter of throne t of up Holder of Mobilities Othef Priesthood the engine which the privileges and pretensions of aristocrats hate always Boen sustained in trampling Down the rights devouring Tho substance and absorbing the unrequited labors of Tho masses. Through All time the precession of coined hag Given Power to the few to enslave the labor of the Many for the Benefit of princes and Nobles and its use has Beon the badge of servitude of nil people to borne King or tyrant. To deny this at Ono Lime was treason. When Tho chief priest would Fain Kiryo Tat Cen hold of the words of curl lord that so they might deliver him into the Power and authority of the governor they asked is it lawful for is to give tribute unto Ciesar or no but he received their and said Why term it me. Show me a Penny. Whose image and inscription hath in they answered Caesar and he said unto them Render therefore unto Cresar the things that Are Cresar a and unto god the things that Are god and they marvelled Ai his answer. Our Patriot fathers founded a government for themselves on this eliminated from its framework Emory attribute of monarchy and aristocracy the divine right of Kings patents of nobility the succession of primogeniture the Law of entail the fealty of one Man to another every of the devices of King Craft and opposition with which the people Are governed a class All save one they retained whether for Good or eve the precious a arajs stamp a in a speech in the House of representatives. Fob. 26, 1878, Gen. Butler said therefore or.
