The Editor of tlio CoLU.mhian will
bo nbaont from his post for about two
weeks. Ho hppes that after IiIj return
ho will not ii&nln bo under tho nocqjs
Sty of craving tho IndulKcnco of his
readers, in thla respect, at least for a
considerable tlrao. In tho meantime,
tho paper will bo left lu compotunt
If any views wo express In tho Co
lumbian aro not in accord with those
of our readers, tho latter aro wolcomo
to controvert them in our columns,
without other limitation than that they
must bo written out In n fair hand, bo
carefully considered, broached In clear,
conclao and respectful language, and bo
consistent with pood morality and
orthodox Democratic sentiment. Ex
pressions of views for tho public good,
on any legitimate) subject, aro also In

Many of the Republican papers as
crlbo tho loss of Congressmen and As
semblymon to the fued existing bctweon
Cameron and Coiitin, and in this wo
have no doubt thoy aro correct. When
General Cameron claimed to bo a
Democrat, It was his invariable custom
to defeat any Democratic candidate, if
he could, who would not pander to his
schemes. A political opponent was nl
ways preferred by him to a porsonal an
tagonist in his own party, or to any one
ho could not use. That he carried this
same policy into tho Republican ranks
wo havo often observed, and that ho
will continue to defeat Republican can
didates who cannot be used by him to
BUbserve his own ends, whenever he
can do it, is just as certain as that he
will follow his common instincts and
practices. Cameron is a Republican
and a politician for Cameron's sake, to
promote his Interests and to add to his
power for his own benefit and behoof.
Ho nover had an idea that politics had
any other legltlmato purpose than to
make solid cash for Cameron, and ho
is too old to learn any thing different
now. If our Republican friends did
not learn this long ago, they aro dull
pupils and well deserve to pay for their
Whatever else may be truo about
Governor Curtin, ho at least has the
merit of nover trying to defeat his own
party. Ho is generous and not specially
selfish. Some times recklo but nover
unfaithful to party obligations. It is
hardly falrj therefore, for his parly
friends to condomn him for the Injury
arising to them becauso of the fued be
tween him and Cameron.
But, as wo have no concern In Re
publican domestic troubles, we only
have business with this subject so far
as it is an item of current news.
Ked Cloud and Ocn. Grant.
Tho reported conversation of Red
Cloud on our first page will provo in
teresting to tho reader. Tho Harrlsburg
Patriot, in speaking of this subject
says: It seems that in a diplomatic
point of view tho visit of Red Cloud
to tho capital of Iho nation has turned
out a decided failure, though Its success
as a private enterprise may bo conceded.
All the flattering attentions and bland
ishments which wero offered tho great
chief were utterly wasted, for ho has
returned to his nativo wilds with the
contempt and indifference of a stole
philosopher. Tho impression which
the civilization of white men mado
upon him Is far from flattering. He is
of opinion that one merely seeks to de
fraud the other, and especially that tho
rich are anxious only to plunge the poor
into deeper poverty, to iob them, so to
speak, of their only sheep, whlld they
aro fattening at tho same on tho land
which they havo stolen from its original
possessors. The wrongs which his race
has Buffered at tho bands of the whites
has evidently given rise to this theory of
tho Indian philosopher. Whatever may
be said of this opinion it is evident that
Red Cloud's clearness of perception
was not blinded by tho glaroand osten
tation which surrounded him in the
White House. Ho goes so far as to de
clare that ho is ashamed of tho "Great
Father" who has been guilty of U9lng a
"forked tongue" to him. Grant is tho
first President of tho United States who
has been unablo to pieserve tho respect
which his predecessors always inspired
on tho part of tho sons of the wilder
ness. This quarrel between Red Cloud
and tho President threatens to lead to
some unpleasant results. It remains to
bo seen how Grant will conduct his
part of the controversy.
She Stato Treasurership.
Tho battle over tho spoils that result
from the control of tho State Treasury
already begins to wax warm in tho, ItO'
publican camp. The present Treasurer,
Irwin, Is out with a publication Bhow.
Ing up some of the corruptions and
heavy losses of personal opponents In
his own party, but this, we suppose, is
only telling half tho story, for ho refus
ed last winter, to answer a Legislative
committee as to tho uso of tho Stato
funds when ho was Treasurer before,
The Republican corruption In tho elee
lion of Stato' Treasurer is tho most mon
strous that has ever been practiced in
this Commonwealth and means should
surely bo devised to prevent it. It is a
difficult subject but a fair field for tho
Konlusof some of our astute statesmen
Wo never could discern tho wisdom
of deciding between two Republican
aspirants, both corrupt, as was dono by
tho Democrats In the Legislature last
winter nevertheless there may have
been wisdom in it. Where they had
the power to elect a sternly honest man
of different politics, tho propriety of
supporting him would be undoubted,
but there Is no uso af deciding between
pair of rogues If a rascal must bo
elected let tho Republican majority uo
it aud bear the consequences.

An earnest effort Is making by Iho
Democracy of Luzerne to reorganize in

On tho contrary all experience allows
that largo bodies aro moro easily cor

Theso remarks will apply to Colum

tho evils complained of in tho latter do
not exist hero, except as regards a do
grco of dissatisfaction. Wo understand
a convention Is to bo called hero for the
purpose of revising tho delegato system
and to it wo would make tho same sug
gestionsthat wo do to tho Democracy of
Luzerne. Tho main object to be at

Recent Elections.
Several of tho States held elections
for members of Congress and other ofll
cers on Monday and Tuesday lost. Of
courso tho returns aro yet meagre and
uncertain, nnd for tho present wo can

so far wo regard as f.ivorablo to tho De

gain of Congressmen will bo sufficient
to give an anil administration majority
in the House, but tho party strength
may bo so nearly balanced that radical
and outrageous schemes will bo checked.
In New York, thero Is llttlo doubt

of tho Federal administration, by tho

tlemen who have contributed ainplo

Tho Patriot will advocato a perfect
restoration of tho Union lu ull its parts
and Its entire Integrity ; equalltynmong
the Stalls as prescribed by tho Consti

Tho Nino million Steal. ,
Tho signs of tho times clearly portend
that another effort will bo made next
winter to steal thoStato funds deposited
in tho Sinking Fund, amounting to
about nine millions of dollars. Of courso
argumont against tho proposition is
vain tho buzzards havo fixed their
eyes upon it and thoy will not bo satis
fied until It Is crammed into their
greedy craws. Ostensibly tho money
Is to be appropriated to tho building of
Railroads, but at least half of it will go
Into prlvnto pockets tho larger portion
Into tbo pockets of thoso who engineer
tho project and tho balance is to bo used
in tho necessary purchoso of members
of tho Legislature.
As Governor Geary has onco vetoed
tho bill, he will be under tho necessity
of doing so again. That may bo regard
ed as sure. Wo regard it as certain that
a sufficient number of members of tho
House may bo purchased to pass it by
two-thirds in that body, and tho only
dependence therefore is In retaining
moro than one-third of tho Senato
against it. Tho practical question re
garding the subject is,canthatbodone?
Wo say to nil people, therefore, look
to the Senate I There is hope thero
though it bo a slender one. All possi
ble iullucnco should bo directed to that
body, und directed with energy nnd
Although somo corrupt Democrats
may nnd probably will bo induced to
support this bill, it could nover becomo
a law if tho Democracy wero lu posses
sion of full power. No such responsi
bility would bo shouldered by it. If
tho great theft, therefore, is committed,
the Republican party, wlio aro in pos
session of all tho departments of tho
Stato government, will bo Justly respon
sible for it. But for their geucral reck
lessness and contempt for tho popular
will, no such proposition would bo
made, or at least not seriously enter
tained. It is tho general political de
moralization produced by tho Republi
can party that Induces all such schemes
and invites every species of plunder.
Let them bo held to a strict accounta
bility for what is done by tho Stato
West vs. Bast.
Tho western Democratic papers aro
pretty unautmously demanding that the
next Stato Convention shall select a
Chairman of tho Exccutlvo Committee
from that region, and removo tho head'
quarters of tho commlttoo from Phlla
dolphla. Thoy claim that tho largo
Democratic gains In the western part of
tho State, whlo' tho-.nagt" isstauding
still, 4s a sufficient reason for this.
Without regarding tho reason assigned
as at nil conclusive, or oven applicable,
wo favor tho suggestion. Thoro Is morlt
in tho energy and driving activity of
western men, an clement wo fall to dls
cover In tho sordid selfishness of Phlla
dolphla politicians. Lot tho western
demand be gratified, put tho metal of
their best men to tho test by assigning
them to tho highest responsibilities
"let looso tho dogs of war," and If thoso
"frosty sons of thunder" do not glvo us
victory they will nt least deserve it
which Is moro than can bo said of recent
Stato Committees.

European News.
After soveral days of report that
an nrmlatlco had been agreed upon be
tween Prussia nud Franco, for twenty
fivo days, during which tho French
wero to hold nu election nnd mako a
government, it is now positively stated
that negotiations havo been broken off
by tho bad faith of tho French authori
ties. Any day, however, may bring nn
armlstlco. Tho city of Paris has taken
a vote on tho question of confidence in
the government now attempting to con
trol affairs. Nearly half n million voted
afilrmatively, nndsomc5G,000 negative
ly. What n Parisian thinks ono hour
is but llttlo Indication what may bo the
state of his mind tho next. Resistance
to nuthorlty prevails everywhere, and
If tho Prussians fear any thlnglt is that
they may havo uo authority to treat
with when they want to mako peace.
Marshal Bazaine is out with a defence

"Colored" People. Amongst tho
Yankee absurdities that havo gained n
footing with moro senslblo and frank
peoplo is tho mawkish practice of
speaking of "colored" people. Consid
ering that every body possesses more
or less color, tho form Is meaningless
unless tho exact color bo described
black, yellow, white, pink, grey, spot
ted, tan, maroon, copper, &c. Why not
call tho Negro by his proper name?
What discredit Is thero In it that does
notattach to him personally by what
ever namo ho may bo called ?
That tho Negro has been tauuht to
object to it himself Is of no consequence,
nnd is merely a development of his
monkoy propensities. IIo is certainly
tho only creature on tho faco of the
globo that has objection to being called
by his proper name. It is not n term
of reproach, or ridiculo, or opprobrium
In any sense. As clearly and fairly as
tho.term Caueassian or European Indi
cates tho whito race, doos tho term Nu
gro indicate tho black. Just that much
and no more. Then call him by his
right name, for tho samo senslblo rea

In view of tho fact that our elections
are being put under tho supervision of

having interfered in the lato election in

will servo to mark tho danger of such n
courso toshow how, oven in tho mon

Blackstcno says that "it is essential
to tho very being of parliament tbnt

therefore, nil unduo influences upon
tho elections are Illegal and strongly
prohibited," and to such an extent was
tlio luw jealous of tlio freedom of elec

that "a wager between two electors up

Tho Radical Ring, Stc.
'lb the tidllor of the Columbian .'In
continuation of my former nrllcle, I
am now to dwcrlbo not an Imaginary,
but n leal Ring, nmdn up of I'Vderjl
office-holders and their allies In Blooms
burg, with n few members outside. Tho
regular Ring organ tho Republican
newspaper afiVets groat horror of
Rings, but uono of tho olllco-huutersor
ofilco-holders it represents are at ull de
ceived. They smllo nt tho protouso, for
they understand it exactly, and know
It to bo only, (what Artemas Ward
would call) "a good goak."
Tho Ring Includes In tho first place,
a number of Radical olllco-holdors a
Postmaster, Rovenuo Assessor, United
States Commissioner, Notary Public,
and besides these, an Editor of tho Es
culapian species. There would bo more
of thorn If there were moro olllees of

Theso Radical officials havo all been
selected and appointed In tho Interest
of Mercur, "M. C." and they servo him
zealously. As a dispenser of patronage
(which Is tho very breath of lift) to a

chief, and lias all their devotion. Tho

ported here, they upprovo and applaud:
Indeed, they think It a very good thing)
becauso thoy monopolize and enjoy tho
Including tho Radical editor in this
list is not a mistake, for lie runs tho
Ring newspaper and lias run tho Radi
cal County Committee as Chairman.
And, by tho way, tho post of Radical
Chairman Is not to bo despised, when
good things aro to bo looked after, Tho
Radical party spen is monoy freely up
on elections, for It always has plenty,
nud has no scruples about using It. And
tho amount it spends upon elections
comes back to It an hundred fold lu va
rious forms of plunder taken from tho
people. Tho control of party funds at
elections Is therefore an interesting
question in Hail leal circles, ns was well
pointed out by Judgo Monroe In his
pronunclamento against tho Ring, mado
in tho C mrt Houso a year or two slnco.
Ho said somo of the election money
was wanted nt C.ttnwissa: his side of
tho river got nono; it was all absorbed
here, and kept away from tho patriots
of the party oulbldo of tho Ring. This
testimony more than hints nt tho Coun
ty Chairmanship as a post of profit, es
pecially at tho big eUctions, when con
tributions aro sunt hero from abroad.
No doubt, as tho JuiIro assorts, tho
grist Is heavily tolled as it pisses
through thu mill of tho Ring, and tho
head miller probably gets most of tho
toll, and all tho loakago bolides I
But unfortunately, thu Radicals of
tho Ring uro weak with tho peoplo and
cannot get elected to office. They uro
confined to appointments, and until ft
Radical Congressshnll mako somo more,
tho supply of these will ba iinulllclent.
Thoy nru therefore ambitious to play u
larger part In thu game of politics, nnd
to muko strength for their party in tho
future. Hence their alliance with tho
soreheads; tho opening of their organ
newr-paper to tho uttoranco of hore-
head complaints ami hlnndors, and tho
complete concert of action established
between them and their near allies in
recent elections. In fact, tho alliance
here spoken of was so consolidated
at the lato election, that it manifested
Itself distinctly in tho Congressional
voto at Bloomsburg and nt Berwick ;
and if It did not glvo to Mercur tho
wholoof his llttlo majority in tho Dis
trict, certainly contributed tho greater
part of it. To discuss this treachery,
and the objects of tho combined Ring,
will bo tlio subject matter of a succeeding

ly It proceeded to ordain ut 7 o'clock p.

was preached by Rov. B. D. Thomas,
of Pittston. Ordaining prayer was of
fered by Rov. Geo. I. Brensinger, of
Sunbury. Chargo was given to candid

Cattell, Pastor.
Brother Cattell was born nud
reared in England; felt called of God
to labor in America; hither ho camo

By it strange series of circumstances,
tho cry of this church suffering from
want of a pastor was heard across tho
waters, and upon his arrival tt union
was consummated. May Qod's blessing

of those who know tho fow faithful
brethren and sisters of this church, who
ore earnestly striving to servo their
God ns they understand His will against
peculiar and persistent difficulties.
Gfo. I. Brensinoer,
The Williamsport Oaxette .t Bulletin
said In a recent issue that "an organ
grinder recently strayed Into Lewlshurg
where ho created a profoundsensatlon."
To which tho Lowisbur Chronicle ro
plied thusly: "As tho poor follow
passed through Williamsport on his
way hither, tho tax-gatherers followed
him as cattio follow a load of hay, and
ho did not daro to stop, fearing that
his organ and monkey would bo levied
upon for city taxes."

IlARRISllURO, Nov. 7, 1870.
lb tticJXItor of the Columbian : Tho
public press, of both parties, nro now
agitating tho question of n reform con
vention, to amend tho Constitution of
tho Commonwealth : nnd tho serious
consideration 'of this Important ques
tion excites general attention, becauso
evory ono feels that tho machinery of
tho Government has got out of order,
and that instead of working smoothly
nnd effectively ns was formerly tho
enso, Its crazy action indicates breakage
or disorder In somo of its principal
Now, ns tho Legislature is tho great
balanco wheel, lit tho machinery of n
representative government, It follows
that tho attention of tho people Is prin
clpally directed to tho stupendous cor
ruptlons which have, of latu years, pal
luted our legislative halls, perverting
In a most nstonlshlng manner, tlio le
gltlmnto ends of popular reprtsenlii'
tlon. Henco tho people nro Inclined to
nttributo all the political Ills they suffer,
to legislative corruption nnd, therefore,
lends a willing ear to any plausible
proposition, having in view thu purl
flcatlon of tho legislative branch of tholr
For my part,nlthough I freely admit
tho existence of tlio demoralizing con
sequences, resulting from loglslatlvo
corruption, I nm not ono of thoso who
bcllevo that all tho political and social
disorders, under which wo suffer, nro to
bo uttrlbutcd solely to tho misdeeds of
our legislature. Thoro Is no doubt that
tho venality und corruption of but too
many of our Representatives are a
curso upon tho people. But I Insist
that It is u curso thoy havo brought up
on themselves, and that its continuance,
can only bo averted, under oxlstlng
circumstances, by the adoption of "the
free vote," giving to all tho peoplo "free
elections" nnd "a Just representation."
Tho idea of transferring any powers
from tho legislature to other elective
public bodies, equally llablo to corrup
tlon, is in my opinion a political fallacy,
moro opt to aggravato tho evils com
plained of, than to euro thorn. If no
constitutional moans can bo devised,
by which tho people may elect honest
mon to make their laws, then the great
experiment of self government is a in
mentablo failure, nnd nil tho constltu
tionnl experiments to supply tho plac
of public virtue will provo nbortivo and
will only tend to nccclcrato tho down
fall of constitutional freedom I
But, unfortunately, corruption is not
confined within tho limits of our legls
lativo halls. It has gradually found Its
slimy way into loo mauy of our JudI
cial courts, where legal decisions nro
warped from tho direct; lino of Justice,
into tho terrible channels of political
expediency and partizan hato I Who,
that frequents these courts or reads their
proceedings. Will deny tho truth of this
assertion? It is truo that most of the
senior members of tlio profession, faith
ful to tho traditions of tlio past, have,
down to tho present day, by prccopt
and example, partially succeeded in
upholding those high sentiments of
professional honor nnd probity, insepa
rabiy from tho impartial adnilnis
trution of tho law. But, thoso ven
crablo men are, In the order of nature,
fast passing away nnd, ero long, thu few
of them left, will bo impotent to stay
tlio demoralizing uue, which now
threatens to sweep nway thoso great
beacons which whilom pointed tho
coursu of impartial Justico I
It is but a fow days since, at tho Into
election, that you, Mr. Editor, saw, in
a neighboring judicial district, ono of
the brightest lights of tho legal profes
sion of Pennsylvania, rudely thrust
aside, to make room for n ineruintrlgu
ing politician. Thus, by this recent
verdict of thu people of that district, it
uppears that, tho majority ut least, care
very llttlo about tho pure, impartial ad
ministration of justice, which might,
pel haps, provo inconvenient to many
of them, but attach infinitely moro iiu
portauco to tho social qualities of thulr
President Judgo; and that u decision
upon a sample of cholco whiskey, duliv
ered before a party of experts, will coui'
maud their admiration, in a much high'
or degree, than any uluborntuloalupiU'
ion drawn from u pile of musty law
books I .
From this appalling exhibition of this
prostitution of tho popular vote, the
apprehension is foiced upon us, that the
character of our courts of Justico will
gradually fall to tho level of infamy
which now excites tho Indignation of
tho people against tho moral turpitude
oi tlieir LifgHiutivo Representatives.
This Is u sad picture ! But there isstill
worso behind.
Tho great bribes brought Into tho
Legislature, for tho purchase of oxorbl
tant privileges, not only corrupted tho
Representatives of the people, but stlm
ulaled them to uso a part of their lib
gotten gains to secure a ro-olectlou, In
order to eoutlnuo their unholy trullc
in tho Legislature. Hence, It soon bo
camo apparent that, but In too many
cusps, Mimn,tMM were bought, aud that
tho primary nominating conventions
had been lnuoculated with tho moral
pestilence which first broko out in tho
halls of legislation I This, nnd tho dally

This abandonment, by so largo a num

Convention: Dear SiR-Presumlngthnt
my declared dcslru to withdraw from
tho candidacy would hnvo Insured the
dismissal of my numo from tho minds of
theconventlon nt Flltchburg; thu nomi
nation nnnounccd by you In your favor
of this date, which I havo tho honor to
acknowledge, was somowhat unexpec
ted by mo. Differing In tlmt respect
from my eloquent competitor, I havo
for thrco years past wished to bo Gov
ernor of Massachusetts very much, but
hnvlng failed to discover tho reciprocity
of sentiment among tho majority of my
fellow citizens, which Is desirable In
such cases, I thought it would bo wlso
for tho democracy to select n moro nt
tractive candidate. Butthoconvontlon
having apparently detected a valuo In
my services which had escaped my ob
servation, It would bonrrogating an ab
surd linportnnco to my Individual pref
erences to porsist in nn obstinnto and
ungracious refusal of so small a sacri
fice, to n body of citizens from whom 1
havo accented such flattering favors. I
therefore cordially undertako tho duly
Imposed. Tho only real claim of tho
republican party, of late, to public con
fidence, Is by n parade of trophies.
Without head, or system, or principles,
It Is held together only by tho Ufoof do-
cay corruption. Its system of taxa
tlon Is tho most burdonsomo and tho
least democratic In tho world ; Its cur
roncy Is tho robbery of tho poor, whllo
its vaunted reduction of tho debt has
only been accomplished by acruoltnxn
Hon which doubles the burden by tak
ing two dollars from tho peoplo for each
dollar paid to tho public creJItor. Tho
scheme of imposts Is deliberately and
craftily organized In tho Intorosts of US'
soclated capital nlone, and is ns certain
ly, If not as palpably, n violation of ov
cry prlnclplo of equal democratic gov'
eminent as was tho cognate policy of
tho samo party, by which two hundred
millions of acres of tho people's home
stead lands havo been given away to
railroad corporations. This cunningly
devised schomo will this year toko five
or six hundred millions of dollars from
tho peoplo, nnd pay it over to tho caplt
allsts who own your mines and mills
and furnaces and salt works, toalloviato
their unprofitable labors, as certainly as
If tho tax was openly levied ur,d tho
bounty avowedly paid. Under thu samo
system our ocean shipping is broken up
and our shipyards are closed, nud tho
farming land of Now England no Ion
ger fetches tho cost of tho buildings
upon It. And that Its conspicuous
merit in affording protection to tho
American worKiuan from tlio pauper la
bor of Europo may bo apparent to tho
meatiest capacity, almost tho only artl
clo which it admits duty freo Is au un
limited supply of cheap Chinese, im
ported in lots to suit capitalists. Tho
democracy, on tho contrary, accepting
tho past and frankly recurring to tho
principles of Jefferson, hold out tho
hand to all who long for reform, and
press forward to redeoiu tho future. To
that end they call on nil men who are
for a moderate and equal tariff, concolv
ed in no interest less universal than that
of tho wholo peoplo, on ull who know
that ti depreciated currency Is n curo
to every ono but utter perdition to tlio
poor and on thoso mon who seo how
corruption Is sapping the foundations of
tlio government, to maintain by tlieir
votes tho truly domoeratlo mearares of
hard money, n revenue tariff nud a rad
leal reduction nnd reform in tho civil
servico. in Stato allair.s tlio succoss ot
tho democracy would mean thonbsoluto
cessation of grants of public funds or
credit to local or partial uses. Tho stur
dy beggars who Infest tho Stato Houso
need no longer doubt whether thoExo
cutivo can bo screwed up to forbid their
plans of plunder. Democratic economy
will not im-ati a crowded lobby and
swelling debt. Special legislation shall
not drag out tho sessions of our leglsla
ture till midsummer; und thedemocra
cy daro trust tho people to buy thulr
food und drink unwntched by nn odious
and expenslvo corps of Informers.
Abovo all, sir, tho democrncy intend to
try for a new Union, under what a radl
cal Senator of tho Uulted States has
called that "decayed and worm-eaten
bequest of tho fathers of tho Republic'
tho Constitution of tlio United States,
And In success tho democratic party at
least will not utterly forget that n gov
eminent, no matter what title it may
assume, is truly democratic only in so
far us tlio guiding will of most permits
tlio free development of each In every
nttributo of independent manhood.
Very truly your obedlont servant,
John Q. Adams,
Contesting Elections.
In 18G3 tho peoplo of tho Twenty-first
district elected Henry D. Foster (Demo'
crat), to Congress, by n small majority
over tho notorious Joiin Covodo, Foster
was deprived of hls'seat by ono of thoso
mock contests that uro now so common
among unsuccessful Republican candl
dates for Congressional honors. Covode,
whom ho beat, was admitted. Promt
nen ton tho Committee of Elections in
assisting In this foul wrong upon tho
principles of representation, was John
Cessna, Not only was ho nn Instrument
In tho turning out of Foster, but in a
number of other cases ho perpetrated a
similar fraud upon Democratic mem
bcrs nud their constituents. Roth of
them wero candidates for re-election
Foster was sent back by n majority of
7ii, Instead of tho mere nominal ma
Jority ho received two years ago. It is
thus tho peoplo rebuko tho parties who
had previously deprived him and them
of their rights. liut this was not all
Cessna was beaten nud u Democrat
elected In his place. Thus there is u
