Ed. liKciisTKR Dear Sir : The
editor of the Democrat in
issue was rather lengthy in his com
meuts on the fact of J. B. Irvine
attending two County Conventions,
lately kid at Albany j and I sec in
the Portland Evening News of
this date quotations from the Dem
ocrat, and savore comments on his
(Irvine's) movement I also no
notiml in the same issue of the
News that he h: 1 hoisted his Dem
ocratic banner a id raised his war
cry of "Hurrah fr Grover and the
democratic part," indicating,-'of
course, his intent on of supporting
the Democratic ticket. But, in
looking through t ie columns of the
Orejoidan I uolic ed that the editor
of the News had t; ken a very prom
inent part in an 1 idepcndent con
vention held at Portland. I don't
know it may be true Democracy
for a man to say lie is Democratic
ami is at tlie same time vigorously
striving to secure the election an
Independent ticket, but it looks de
cidedly "spotted" to me.
Jis for the editor of tlie Demo
crat, when I read that article con
cerning Mr. Irvine, or think of that
speech he made at this place, it re
minds me of a little incident that
occurred here, in which Gov. L. F.
Grover and Brig. Gen, M, V. Brown
were prominent actors. It appears
that the Bjigadier had become ac
quainted with the tact that the Gov.
would speak at this place on the
6th, and thinking it a rare oppor
tunity to display his oratorical pow
ers, he decided to accompany him.
When they reached our town they
found quite a crowd awaiting with
feverish impatience their arrival,
and the hour ot speaking. 1 he
hour arrived, but as fate would
have it, one of our stableman bad
just succeeded in making a race for
a purse ot two dollars and fifty
cents, in which the contestants were
a boy and a mule, who immediately
repaired to the race-track, and,
much lo the chagrin of the Gov.
and Mart, with about two-thirds of
their crowd following. But soon
the Gov. got wind of it, and not to
be played out m this kind ot style,
left Mart in charge of the few re
maining, and went himself in quest
of his absent hearers. He hadn't
been gone' but a short time when
those remaining with Mart., think
ing the Gov, wasn't going to speak,
began to drop off one by one. So
the Gov had not proceeded far be
fore he was overtaken by Mart, and
the rest of the crowd. After trav
cling about a mile through the
mud and water, they reached the
scene of the race. The contestants
were just coming m on the home
stretch, and the result was in favor
of the mule, who it appeared, had
the most friends, and the Gov. tak
ing advantage of this, informed the
crowd at the top of his voice that
"He had always been a friend to
the mule family," aid judicious

fun," succeeded in securing an au-
