THE STATE CONVENTION.
without a moments reflection that the
Convention will have important busi
ness to transact. In the flYst place it
will have to adopt a platform of prin

party and the people. No glittering
generalities will suffice. It mu«t be
specific and cover all the points.
This accomplished, the Convention
will proceed to ’nominate the ticket.
None but good and competent men
should be selected. No dishonest or
incompetent person can be elected.
The Jeffersonian test should be ap
plied to every candidate—“is he hon
est, is he capable”—should be the in

and those who can not pass the exam
ination should be left aside “until a
more convenient season.”
The State is naturally divided into
three parts, Eastern, Middle and
Southern, and each division should
be represented on the ticket. It is
dangerous to igfiore local claims, be
cause tho slighted . sections may fail
to give the ticket a cordial support
and thereby imperil its success. And
we believe the Convention will en-
deavor to equitably adjust this mat-
ter, and if it succeeds in distributing
the candidates, success will be in
