election will bo held on Tuesday, the
4th of November.
Voters who have not paid a Slate or
County tax within two years next pro
ceding the election (except such as are
between the ages of twonty-one and
twenty-two years), must pay such tax
on month preceding the election, that
Is, on or before Saturday, October 4tb.
Failure to pay tax in season de
prives the voter of the privilege of

The JaurniU last week was turned
into a Chisholm sheet, and wnvod the
bloody shirt more vigorously than
ever, lor too purpose oi ucgoiung
hatred and inalico between the two
sections, North and South. This, to
us, is a queer "morul idea" method for
Christians to tollow ; but the Radical
journalists seem to grab at every lault
committed by the Jew, and then blame
it on the many.
General Woodford, one of the Radi
cal leaders in Nuw York, and who ac
companied the widow to Missisippi,
has this to say in the Washington He-
publican, of tho Ifith inst. :
General Stowart L. Woodford, ar
rived hero to-day lrom Mississippi,
where he went with Mrs. Cbisholin to
attend the trial of Henry J. Gully for
tbemurdurot Cornelia Cnisuolm. Mi's.
Chisholm is at present in East Tennes
see, where sue will spend a lew days
with friends betore returning to Wash
ington. The following is the inter
Question Gen. Woodford, so many
stories bavo, been told in the newspa
pers about your visit to Mississippi
that, with your permission, 1 wish to
ask why you attended the recent Chis
holm murder trial.
Answer Certainly, sir. When I
learned from tho press that Mrs. Chis
holm bad decided to obey the aubpeena
of the local District Attorney and at
tend the trial, 1 thought Bbe did justly
and wisely. Her husband was killed
while be was a prisoner and in jail, af
ter ho bad been arrested by the Sheriff
and while he was under tbe theoreti
cal protection of tho Mississippi law.
Ucr daughter and littlo boy were kill
ed by the sumo mob at the same time
and place, olio hau appealed to mo
law lor redress. Shu could not as
sume to decido for herself that such
appeal would bo idle and tbo trial a
more mockery. Jf it was tbo duty of
this widow woman to go it was not
decent for a Republican North to lot
ber go alone. 1 happened to be so
situated, all tbo Federal courts at Now
York being in recess, that 1 could go,
and so 1 went.
(J Did you anticipate any danger
in attending the trial? A. (emphat
ically). No, sir. Tho common boiiso
of the country was pledged to let Mrs.
Cnisholm go and return in satcty. i no
result showed that the indicted parties
Btood in no peril, oither from hor or
indeed Irotn any testimony that could
have been given on that trial by any
ono. As for myself, I received during
this visit, as 1 have alwayB received
on my scvoral visits to the South since
tho war, entire civility and conrtosy
from every person I met.
(J Hut, General, one of the dis
patehos sont to tho Now York Herald
during tbe progress of the trial stated
that there was fear of a riot in case of
conviction. Was this fear well found
ed 1 A. 1 cannot tell, but there was
never enough danger of conviction to
lustily any intelligent fear. I ho trial

A. Thomas S. Ford, and he did his
duty well and bravoly. I studied crit
ically bis conduct of the caso. lie bad
judgment. ITo was assisted by Judge
Ware, an ex.CbancoIlor of one of the
Mississippi districts, and by Joshua L.
Morris of Vicksburu, who is cortainly
ono of tho most logical and forcible
criminal lawyers whom I have mot at
any bar. 1 think tbe prosecution made
out a rloar and complete case of mur
der. Tho charge of the Judgo was
distinct, direct aud positivo, and yet
the jury were only out long enough to
take one ballot and write their verdict.

Q. How do you, then, account for
tho vordict ? A I do not know how
to account for it on any grounds that
are not discreditable either to the in
tclligenca or the moral senso of tho
jury, and 1 do not think that tho nine
white men on tho jury wore lacking
in intelligence The three negroes ev
idently possessed neither brains nor
courage. 'I he whites wore a very fair

Q Did you ascertain tho politics
of tbo jurors? A. I did. Tho whites
woro all Domocrats, so were two ne
groes ; at least I was so informod by
ono of tho counsel for the defense Tbe

publicon, but evidontly a mau without
sense to form or courage to maintain
any intelligent opinion on any subject

A. It was. Of the suventv-five names
drawn for the spocial voniro, filty-one
were scrvod and presented themselves
in court. Of these twenty-five were
Diacic and twenty-six were wbito,
Whatevor else may bo said of Kemper
county, it must bo lrankly admitted
that tbo jury list of tho county was
fairly made up. Two-fifths, of this
number are blacks and tbrocfiflhs
whitos. The officers charged with
making this list have done their duty
impartially, and the special panel
orawn irotn mis enure list was non
Q, Do you think the vordict fairly
represents tbo teeline ol Aomper coun
ty f A. It does not represent the
feeling of tbe great mass of tb na
groos, nor of tho white Republicans,
nor yet of a small minority of sober
and law-abiding Democrats. All these
three classes confbined constitute a
clear and docided majority of tbe citi-
''on' nl1 '"(?' 'otons of tho oounty.
Ht I am sadly and reluctantly com-
polled to say that I believo tbe verdict
truthfully and honestly represents the
present judgment and wishes of the
groat majority of tbe white men of the
county. 1 tried to observe carefully
and judge eandidly, and I think that
the avorage present opinion of tbo
while people ol Hompor county in re
gard to this whole matter is about
this: Tbey think it was unfortunate,
but natural and almost excusable that
Judge Chisholm, John P. Gilmer and
Amos McClcllan wore shot by the mob
that Sunday morning in De Jlalb.
Tbey think that Miss Cornelia and
young Johnny Chisholm wore acci
dentally killed by those who attempt-
ed to kill their father. This killing of
me children is almost nnlvarsally re
gretted. But thoy think that the con
viction and execution of anybody for
the deed would be equally unfortunate
and that tbe entire Batter bad bettor
be allowed to die out and be forgotten.
Tboro is no intelligent and bravo pur
pose to vindicate the law and punish
the mob or its ringleaders. In a word,
while judge and District Attorney try
to do their duty, there is, ae yet, no
brave tolerant and law-abiding publio
opinion behind them to hold up their
bands and enforce the law. The friends
of the law among the people are quiet
and powerless. The f riends of the mob
are resolute, oat spoken and dominant.
Tbe Jery twaotioellr indorsed the deeds
ot the mob, and sunn publio opleion as
is to day heard and felt in Kemper
oounty sustains and indorses the ver
' Q General, notice that V0 eualllf

tainly 1 bave. The mob of Kemper

and murdered dofenselees prisoners

to inturlero. In 1871) ut least the forme
of law are observed and an orderly
trial is held. This is a great point
gained. A Ithmigh no redress has been
secured local jury box, still the evi-
donee and the rulings of tho Court
bave demonstrated to Impartial men
in all the country that the murder was
brulal &nd coward!-. This was ivM,
an investigation by a partisan Con
gressional Committee, but it was a
thorough and deliberate trial conduct
ed in duo lorm of law by a Democratic
District Attorney, boluro a distinguish
ed and learned Democratic Judgo. Tho
numerical majority as all tbe legal vo
tors of Kemper county to-day in their
hearts condemn the murder and disap
prove this verdict. .Now they are
powerless, ilut it is not possible lor
this Btato of things to continue lorover.
Violence begets violence. At lust or
ganized society must and will protect
itself by peaceful and legal methods.
Whenever a full and free election is

condemn the mob and regret tbe ver

a question of time."
A Little Slim. Those tremendous
Radical victories gained (on paper) in
Calilornia and Maine, turn out a little
slim Binco tho returns are all in.
Blaine did not elect his Governor in
Muine, nor did tho "Sand Loiters" and
Rads. elect all the Congressmen in
California. It Beems that liluine crow
ed before ho was out of tho woods.
His candidate for Governor must be
elected by tho Legislature, while the
Democrats and Groenbaekersgcl away
with lots of Sheriffs, Prothonotaries,
etc, that lost for three years, and on
fat salaries, while tho Governor and
members of tho Legislature only last
one year. Such was Blaine's plan. Ho
would trade off theso three-year offices
fur 4 one-year ono. This was to affect
tho foreign political market. More:
The Democrats elected a Congressman
in California, while filaineism was
crushed out everywhere. It was near
being another sunstroke. If the Radi
cal editors would only tell their read
ers that liluine traded off a S5.000 of
fice for a (300 membor of tho Legisla
ture, their readers could place a proper
estimate upon thoir man.
Siiteen million dollar! of tbe money appropri
ated under the Arreari of Pentlun act, hare been
paid oat Three million of the remainder were
ueked for on Monday by tbo Commleilonar of
Penaioni, and belore Norember the entire appro
priation of f J5,000,HliO, it U thought, will be distributed.-'eAana.
Why is it that one hull' a score of
Radical Congresses mot and adjourned
since the Rebellion, without over at
tempting to do justico to thoflo brave
men wbo left father, mother, wife, sis
ters and brothers, for the sake of the
Union, and now only get thoir just
dues from tho "Copporhcads" and "Con
federate Rrigadiera ?" We presume
that tho loyal (?) leaders wero too
much engaged in Credit Mobiler jobs,

Tho seleotlon of tho County Com
mittee closed tho legitimate business
of tho Convention ; but liko all other
bodies of the kind, the advocates of
straight delegate system, and thoso in
lavor ol the Lrawlord county system,
joined bands for the nurposo f assail
ing th present cnuellont combination,
by which every door to fraud is olosed.
Under it, delegates are not apt to nut
themselves in the way of a oandidute
tor a cosh consideration, nor doim the
candidate go gunning for delegates,
becauso the plan Is too complicated,
and if any corrupt arrangements are
entered into, both might be caught
ana exposcu ucioro they get throutrb,
Hence, a material temptation to do
wrong Is removed, while undor either
or the delegate or Crawtord oountv
systems, door after door stand opon,
nieraiiy inviting irauu.
Tbo ono faction clamors for freedom,
and despises to be instructed by a bom
vote as for whom bo should vote for
Sheriff, or any other offloe ho i a
freeman (?) and demands tbe straight
dologate system. AH such bad. bettor
stay at home and not allow themselves
to be dragged into where their integ
rity and virtuo might be compromised.
The advocate of the Crawlord ooun
ty system wsnt the votoa at coal

.HO' a!' SI'
the proceedings of not less thun twen
ty-livo Conventions in this county un
der tho delegate, Crawford, and mixed
systems, and tho last was the quietest
(with tho exception of the clamor rais
ed at tho close by the two factions in
dicated) and fairest that wo ever wit
nessed hero or elsewhere. J he inter
ests of the candidates were particularly
cared for and the delegates voted ex
actly as their constituents instructed
tbom, as the table abovo containing
tho popular vote will show. The can
didates aro doubly noiiiiliuted this Pall.
Tho peoplo nominated them on tho
Saturday previous at tho polls, and
the delegates ratified it on Tuesday of
last week. Wo doly any one to point
to a better record tban that made by
tho last Convention.
More: Thoso who clamored for a
chango did not make a single chargo
against tbe present system ; but they
wanted a change, not knowing or cur
ing whether it would be an improve
ment or not. Change is not always
an improvement, either in business or
But we bave digressed. Wo will
now bring our report to a close.
As before stated, the opponents of
tho present syslcm of nominating can
didates, through Peter S Weber, ol
Du Hois, had tho following resolution
reportod and passed :
Areored, That tbe Chairman and Secretary be
inalrtioted to place tbe metter of a ehenge from
the delegate ayatom to tbe Crawford eouniy sys
tem before the beinoereoy of Clearlleld oounty.
At this time a largo number of the
delegates had left tho Convention, and,
on motion, the body adjourned tineitie.
COMLXU TO CALU'ORXIA.
Tho editor of tho Downey City
Outlook, published in Los Angeles
county, California, gives somo fucts
that our readers should bo in posses
sion of, especially those wbo contem
plate moving to tho Golden State, llo
We havo from time to time received
many letters from tbo Eastern Slates,
as well as tho Canadus, asking a great
variety ol questions in regard to south
ern California. NY hat are the chances
for a man who has a littlo money?
t uat i-itii a poor man do f Is there
any (iovernment land? What's the
pneo ol land hold by pnvato parties ?
Aro tho wages good ? Can ono mako
money raising stock? Wbat are the
various industries ? And so on ad in
I ho variety and number of these
questions, and the wide rango of coun
try from which thoy come, show con
clusively that Southern California is
attracting, porhaps, moro attention
than any equal scope of country on
tho globe. Jlut tbeso questions, some
how, savor of the idea that the querists
are looking tor a "soil thing.
It is proper that tho minds of all
should be disabused in regard to this
country. Theulimato is unsurpassed ;
tho soil is exceedingly rich ; the range
ol productive capacity is almost with
out limit ; tho facilities for reaching
distant markets aro improving daily j
for the schools, aro Ciiial to the best ;
and, viow this country lrom any pos
sible standpoint, it is a good land to
livo in pel baps better tban any other.
But the conditions of success are tho
samo hero as olsowhero. There il
nothing in tho olimsvo and soil that
changes human nature. A shiftless,
laxy man in tho East would probably
bo tho samo on tho coast. Here tho
penalty of improvidence is poverty, in
efficiency, failure. It is true one could
drag out a sort of existence, and escape
tho physical sutlering that bo must ex
perieneo during the severe siiasons in
other localities, but in so far as ho
wants the necessary supplies of lite, he
must obtain them as they do in Other
lands, or so without them. The days
of bonaiitas, except in rare instances,
are past. There aro but few short cuts
to a fortune '(he only hocus popus by
wnien to bring auaut valuable results,
is the exorcise of a clear brain, a will
ing hand, and a brave heart.
Southern California has a lari;o un
occupied flold fur tapital and patient,
skilllul industry. Those who cannot
command tbo one or the other bad
hotter slay away. The easy places
were all taken sumuljmo since, II tbore
ever wero any,
Wbat we now specially need is that
class ol Immigrants who will be satis.
naa to tetke hold with onortry and
patiently await results. Hough it, if
necessary ; and our word, for it, a few
year, will bring a seasonable comne
tonco, which one can always enioy in
a land that ought to fill any reasonable
moasure ol earthly comfort ant hup
Tux Noisy Patriot The Philadel
phia Times, in alluding to one of our
diplomats In South America, gets off
the following on our Moadvillo man,
now drawing the 112,000 of a plenipo
tentiary : "A fresh complication has
arisen in South America. Judgo New
ton Pettis is there. This distinguished
Pennsylvanian had great difficulty in
getting started on bis diplomatic ca
reer, but be Is making up lor lost time
now, and not only is looking after the
relations ot the United (States with
Bolivia, but has undortakon tostraight
en out tho very tangled relations be
tween that country, (Jhili and 1'oru.
It is to be presumed that ha has found
out by this time what all the trouble
is about, and our latost advices repre
sent the whole Paciflo coast of South
American waiting in breathless sua-
penso to hear what Judgo Pettis has
to say. There is on thing that can
always bo said for Pettis, lie won't
lot th world forgot that ha is around."
