I t is well enough for everybody to
understand the animus of the move
ment by which the Mitchell crowd
propose to hand over Jackson county,
body, breeches and all, to the care of
that illustrious Senator. The so-called
meeting of free-lancers, set for May
4th by Cox and Brown, is nothing but
a desperate move upon the part of Re
publicans to throw Jackson county for
Mitchell, in which they are seconded
by played-out politicians who have
nothing to lose and everything togain.
This fact being so very transparent we
trust no Democrat will lend himself to
this demoralizing scheme, so thorough

to destroy the success of Democracy

selves the time is ripe when the party
should dissolve anil go the way of all
missionless organizations, unhonored
and unsung. But we have too much
confidence in those w ho compose the
Democratic parly. They cling to the
old ship with a tenacity that becomes
the hour. Though a few may now feel
soured through personal dir-appoint
ment, all is destined to be well in the
end. To support, uphold and work for
the Democratic ticket is the duty of all
true Democrats, and we expect to see
them doing what is right at the proper
time, which is at hand.
