COI'NTY CONVENTION AN'O IIUI'RU-
A convention of the Democrats of
Muscogee county is to lie held at the
court house next Saturday at eleven
o’clock. There, doubtless, will be a
large number present, though our
people arc not very enthusiastic on
political questions just now. They
are opposed to nominations for any
olliee, and all with whom we have
conversed, leaders and privates, are
in favor of pulling bridles off and per
mitting nil who choose to enter the
field to do so, and let bud luck lake
There arc many tilings that ought
to be attended to. For instance, the
Executive Committee should lie ar
ranged more equally according to the
ding strength, so Hint a district of
fifty voters should not have equal
power with one polling five* hundred.
If nominations ever should lie
made, thedistriet system is tliefairest
of all, when they are properly ar
ranged. A primary nomination is
hut another election, without its legal
requirements, when everyone votes
without question. In regular elec
tions ttie poll tax is n check on indis
criminate ballots. According to the
present district system the country
lias twenty-five votes and the city
only eighteen, while at elections the
ity polls over one-luilf and nearly
three-fourths of the ballots. Such
representation Is utterly unjust and
lisproportionate. The most equal
plan we have heard suggested is, be
fore nominations take place, for the
xecutive committee to take the poll
tux lists and base the representations
>f districts on the ratio of one delegate
to every lifty votes, and where a dis
trict lias not that many that it lie en
titled to one delegate. Our nomina
ting conventions under the present
rule number forty-three members.
The proposed plan would give
more, and they would be distributed
according to polling strength. This
is the plan adopted in the larger eitic
and many States of the North. It
places every district on an equality.
I f it is strong or weak it lias its pro]>-
er proportom in the conventions, and
that much voice in the decisions.
This year, however, ns a Democrat
is certain to bo chosen, the people
generally want a free race. The
young men of the county desire to
vote one time for those they prefer,
ns hundreds who have reached ma
jority since the revolution have had
no opportunity to do so—simply bal-
loling for the party—and all arc equal
ly anxious to pull down the bars and
let the horses go, each running on ills
best citizens been defeated for Mayor.
Botli times there were fifty men on
Broad street who declined to vote-
alleging “too busy” us an excuse;
yet they complained.
It is only a question of time when
tlie taxes are to he paid, and we think
the city is better able to wait for its
two dollars until the voter offer his
fioli than is the poor man, who labors
daily, and but barely makes a living.
The twenty days to him to be out of
two dollars is a good deal, when al
most every cent is required for ids
support. It requires time for many
of our best citizens to save that money
and yet our Council, by its action,
deprived them of the privilege of the
ballot unless they pay taxes many
days before an election. The action
is unfair, unjust and oppressive.

Mr. Hayes in forbidding the as
sessment for political purposes of the
employes of the Government is fully
sustained by act of Congress passed in
1876. It provides that any employe
of the United States who shall request
or take from any oilier employe of
the United States any money for any
political purpose whatever shall be
deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and
upon conviction shall be dismissed
from his office and sentenced to not
less than n year's imprisonment or

Kellogg and Spotford met for the
first time, a day or two ago, In the
room of tlie Committee on Privileges
and Elections, where they had been
summoned ns contestants, and were
introduced to each other. Kellogg
opened the acquaintance liy telling
Spotrord that, by a singular coinci
dence, he had that morning received
a letter from his wife, who expressed
the hope that Mr. Spollbrd would get
the seat. Of course Mr. Spollbrd re
gretted the husband was not of tlie
same mind ns the wise woman who
had uttered the proper wish.
The white folks did not entirely
monopolize the President while he
was at Richmond. Thirty-two col
ored preachers waited upon him and
assured him that they were satisfied
with his administration. In reply
the President said that his faith
was firm, if anything firmer, than
ever that bis policy of reconciliation
and pacification would redound to the
interests of all, both tlie white and
colored people. He had taken his
stand on that course, he said, without
hesitation, and lie would hold it to
the end. He believed it to be tlie
best policy for all—for the Sortli as
well as the North. Tlie old issues
which had once divided lliu two great
Beet ions of this country, lie said, were
gone, and gone, he believed, forever.
He at least does not seem to regard
Ills policy as un experiment.
Council last night, by a vote of six
to live, refused to reconsider the pas
sage of the ordinance passed at the
last meeting disfranchising every
citizen who refused or declined to pay
the commutation lax of two dollars
before registering. The vole was on
sustaining the Mayor’s ruling, that to
repeal an ordinance another ordinance
was required. The ruling is no doubt
correct as to an ordinance, but parlia
mentary usage and the practice of
Council is to the contrary ns regards
the question ut issue. An ordinance
passed at one meeting is not an ordi
nance until the minutes of (lie meet
ing which passed it are confirmed.
A ny member voting for the ordinance
at its passage lias the privilege of ask
ing a reconsideration, providing he
gives notice of his intentions while
the minutes are being rend by
tlie Clerk. Alderman Scheussler did
give such a notice, and the Mayor
ruled Ids motion out of order. Coun
cil sustained the Mayor, which was,
in our opinion, at variance with the
rules. Some years ago an ordinance
could ho put to a final vote on its Ih’st
reading, but a late rule of Council re
quires all ordinances to lie over until
the next regular meeting. Tills is a
wise provision, as its prevents hasty
legislation. But the rule allowing a
reconsideration still remains, and
anything done by Council at one
meeting is capable of being reconsid
ered at tlie next.
The action id' Council is such that
it will he impossible to repeal (lie or
dinance before it is toolntoto register,
ns the registration closes twenty day
boljpro tlie election which takes pine
on the 2d Saturday in December. \V
would, therefore, advise every one
who desires to vote to go the Clerk of
Council and offer to register, and on
the day of tlie election all they hav
to do is to pay their taxes.
This ordinance is an oppression
upon n large portion of our people, it
is a capital against labor fight, and w
regret to see our town the first to start
it. Just such legislation us this is the
main cause of the rise of communism,
agrarianism and other destructiv
isms that have arrayed the poor
against tlie rich. Wo have a thous
and voters in our town. None hut
those owning real estate can register
without paying their taxes. How ninny
small merchants, clerks, mechanic
and laboring men are there who
are so unfortunate as to lie too poor to
own real estate'.’ At least 800 out
of tlie thousand. Tims two hundred
land owners legislate* for the 800 who
earn their living liy tlie sweat of their
brow, and who are tlie rent lux pay
ers, for they rent the store houses and
dwellings of the rich at a rate to pay
interest and taxes. This is a
country and we want to see the people
rule. We hope that the day of elm
legislation will never come. We are
on tlie same platform on which Gen
Robert Toombs stands: “Let the peo
ple rule ; they may go wrong some
times, but they will get right before
they quit." Tlie monied class fear
the so-called "nibble. 1 ’ Tlie “many
are not as black us pointed. If tlie
gentry will turn out and vote, they
would have less cause to complain of
those they deem inferior. But they
stay indoors, and if had men are
elected they growl and complain.

Gen. Longstreet hns appeared in
print. In the Philadelphia Times lie
gives a description of tlie battle of
Gettysburg and defends himself from
tlie charges that his delay on tlie sec
ond and third days caused the defeat of
the Confederates. He claims that lie
lias shouldered blame, and suffered in
reputation because lie was unwilling
during tlie life of Gen. Lee to publish
anything which might lie distorted
into an attack upon his commander.
This we deem a lame excuse. By
waiting for tlie death of Gen. Lee and
all ills other corps leaders lie can as
sert at will. They are in their graves
and cannot correct errors which Gen.
Longstreet may inflict upon them.
If lie lmd anything to say lie ought to
have published it during tlie lives of
those who planned the campaign
that they might too have an opportu
nity of making a statement.
Gen. Longstreet was blamed by the
Soutti not because he accepted tlie re
construction measures of the Republi
can Congress, but that he joined tlie
worst foes of ids section and tlie
brave soldiers lie had so honorably
led. Had IiIh course been followed,
intelligence and property would have
still been under the rule of capetbag-
ism and ignorance.
General Longstreet was an aide
officer when lie had a superior to plan
and give general directions. When
lie had exclusive control lie wus a sail
blunderer. Instayce his East Ten
nessee expedition, and foolish charge
on Knoxville, more murderous than
Gettysburg. That campaign was a
General Longstreet says lie speaks
of the weak points of the Gettysburg
campaign “with tlie greatestuffection
for General Lee and the greatest rev
erence for his memory. Tlie rela
tions between us were affectionate
confidential and even tender, from
first to last. There was never a harsh
word between us." He quotes that
General Lee said after the battle, “It
is all my fault.” General Lee thus
took all tlie blame from ills lieuten
ants. After his dentil they should
have continued silent, and General
Longstreet cannot regain tlie lost
love of the South by his into review.
Gen. Longstreet claims he thought
it better to crush Rosecranz, move
through Tennessee and Kentucky and
threaten Ohio, and thus draw Grant
from the seige of Vicksburg, and ad
vised against tlie Pennsylvania inva-
lon. He was, however, overruled,
le recites the movement of tlie
troops. Stewart, with tlie cavalry,
was detached on a scouting expedi
tion toward Maryland with discre
tionary powers. He claims the cam
paign was changed at Chanxbersburg
by the arrival of a scout
who had been sent into tlie
nemy's lines: It was resolved at the
loginning to adopt tlie plan of tacti-
al defense—make tlie enemy fight us
in positions we had chosen.
General Longstreet presents evi
dence to disprove that lie was ordered
liy Gonenvl Lee to open .the attack on
Gettysburg at sunrise on tlie 2d,
and that it was long after sunrise be
fore General Lee determined whethe
the attack should he commenced by
Longstreet or Ewell, and tlie order
for attack was not issued until the
morning was well advanced. Then
nearly an hour was lost by the engi
neers finding a covered way to pro
'll, which was very circuitous.
Becoming Impatient ho hurried for
ward, and found Me Laws in charge
of the advance division, waiting under
direct orders of General Lee until
Colonel Johnson (Lee’s Chief Engi
noor) could find a covered way.
Longstreet went back, and ordered
General Wood’s division up ns rapidly
us possible without regard to conceal
ment, and thus precipitated instead
of retarding the battle. He state
General Lee was either directly in his
oinpnny or within a few moments
march of him all that day.
Gen. Longstreet also claims that lie
toutly and earnestly protested against
tlie battle of the 3d, and speaking of
it afterwards, Gen. Lee asked him
why "he did not stop all that busi
that day?” He replied that lii
advice was not taken and he would
not disobey orders. He denies tlie
statement of Col. Taylor that General
Lee, in liis presence, gave Longstre
orders to put Hood’s and McLaw’
divisions in tlie column of attack. In
a letter written by Gen. Leo to Long
street in 1864, lie says: "Hnil I taken
your advice at Gettysburg instead of
pursuing the course 1 did, how differ
ent it nil might have been."
1 proceed to say that the Gottysbur
campaign was weak in these points—
adhering, however, to my opinion that
a combined movement against Rose-
crans in Tennessee and a march toward
Cincinnati would have given bettor r
suits than could posatbtv have been s_
cured liy the invasion of Pennsylvania:
First, the offensive strategical hut do
tensive tactical plan of the campaign as
thrown across tlie river we might have
fallen on that force and crushed it, and
then put ourselves in position, threat
ening the enemy’s riirlit and rear, which
would have dislodged him from his po
sition at Fredericksburg and given us
tlie opportunity for an effective blow.
Third, General'.Stuart should not have
been permitted to leave the general
line of march, thus forcing uh to march
blindfolded into tlie enemy's country;
to tliis may lie attributed, in mv opin
ion, tlie change of tlie policy of the cam
paign. Fourth, tlio success obtained by
the accidental rencontre on the 1st
should have been vigorously prosecut
ed and tlie enemy should have been
given no time to fortify or concentrate.
Fifth, on the night of tlie 1st
the army should iinvo been car
ried around to Meade’s _ right and
roar and posted between him and his
eapitof, and we could liavomanceuvered
him into an attack. Sixth, when the
attack was made on the enemy's left on
the 2d by my corps, Ewell should
have been' required to oo-operato by a
vigorous movement against liis right
and Hill should have moved ngainst
his centre. Hail this been done liis
army would have been dislodged be
yond question. Seventh, on the morn
ing of tlie 3d it was not yet toolntoto
move to the right and manoeuvre tlio
Federnls into attacking us. Eighth,
Pickett’s division should not have boon
ordored to assault Cemetery Bidgo on
tlie 3d, ns wo had already tested tlio
strength of that position sufficiently to
admonish us that we could liotdisloilgo
him. While tlie co-operation of Gener
als Ewell and Hill, on the 2d, by vigor
ous assault at tlie moment iny buttle
was in progress, would in all probabili
ty have dislodged tlie Federnls from
their position, it does not seem that
such success would have yielded the
fruits anticipated at tlie inception of
the campaign. The battle ns it was
fought would, in any result, have so
crippled us that the Foderals would
have been able to mako good their re
treat, and wo should soon have been
obliged to rotiro to Virginia with noth
ing but victory to cover our waning

THE sriUURY EXECUTION IN BUS-
NELL COUNTY, ALA.
We consider the execution by hang
ing of Owen Wright, colored,by tlie
people who took tlie law in their own
hands, just. He was an outlaw in
every meaning of tlie word. He was
like a wild beast venting lift passion
wherever helplessness wus found and
inclination prompted. According to
liis confession he was a brute of the
worst disoription. He violated tlie
person of botli wliites and blacks
whenever occasion offered, and
victim wus unprotected. He was
fully identified by tlie lady he had
defiled, after having overpowered her
with kicks and pistol shots. He
made her strip before him, and
gratified his hellish lust and left a
poor weak lady, nearly crazed. One
ball from liis pistol would have killed
her had not the weak, struggling wo
man struck it aside. He nearly killed
child with kicks and throwing it
about. According to liis own show
ing, tliis was the fifth crime of this
ihuracter he had committed. After
leaving Mrs. Ellington, lie went on
to swear innocent men to ruin, per
imps to death, for blood money.
In the Soutli, on tlie farms, ladies
in tlie day time are often alone, tlie
males having gone to the fields. Res

Then it is necessary to set
an example to deter other fiends
from violating innocence, and let

'ommission of such acts. The pro
