D. D. BRUCE,
Chairman of Dem. County Committee of Correepodenoe
TO THE VOTERS OF THE XYHD
The unusual, unauthorized and anti-Demo
cratic course pursued by the Conferees of the
Twenty-second Congressional District, in re
fusing to make a Democratic mmination for
the important office of Congressman, and this,
too, at a time when our party has a better
chance of success in the district than was
ever before presented, is a matter of surprise,
regret and shame to the honest and true
hearted members of the party in the Districti
and a cause of the utmost astonishment and
chagrin to the Democratic organization
throughout the State and country. The Dem.
ocratic journals abroad have pronounced the
action of the Conte! ees " a ridiculous farce,"
and no one for a single moment admits, that
it is in the slightest degree binding upon the
Democratic voters of the District. The ac.
tion of these " six gentlemen at Bakerstown"
is in no sense the action of the Democracy of
the Twenty-second District. They were made
agents of the party to do a specific act—to
place in nomination a candidate for Congress ;
they had no other power. It was no part of
the duty with which they were entrusted to
decide whether it was "expedient" or "inex
pedient" to make a nomination. The Demo
cratic voters of the district had already dem
cided that question by the very act of appoint
ing Conferees to make a nomination. But
these gentlemen, members of a political cir
cumlocution office, went to work, and have
given us an admirable specimen of "how not
to do it." They have not only been unfaith
ful to their trust, but they have actually as
sumed the responsibility of selling out the
Democracy of the Twenty-second District to
a Black Republican of the darkest dye, for
the reason that ho agrees with them upon an
Allegheny county local issue in regard to tax
ation for railroad purposes. The candidates
presented by the Butler portion of the Dis
trict, to which the nominee; was conceded by
the Democracy of Allegheny county, they
have frighted off, by cook and bull stories of
certain defeat, and in some way they have
bamboozled our neighbor of the Butler Her`
aid into saying, that this refusal of the " six
men at Bakerstown" to nominate is an " act
of popular sovereignty of deciding, whether
it was best to have a candidate or not, by
their representatives." This is all nonsense—
the popular voice of the Democracy of the
District calls for a candidate. In their Con
ventions they created Conferees to nominate
a candidate. They empowered them positive
ly to nominate. The negative act of refusing
to do the behests of the people was an act of
" six men," on their own personal responsi
bility, and directly in the teeth of every prin.
riple of popular sovereignty. The people
0 took the customary course to secure a candi
date—the " six men," with a despotic hand,
said to the popular masses of the District, " it
is inexpedient" that your design to elect a
Congressman should be gratified. You have
no right to nominate—we will take away all
your rights of popular sovereignty, and act
for you. We know what is for your good
and the good of the party better than you do
- yourselves, and on this occasion we say to
you—vote for a Black Republican who suits
us on a local issue, which has nothing to do
At this high handed and outrageous disre
gard of their rights as popular sovereigns,
the Democracy of the District are justly in-
dignant and they refuse to submit to it. The
Democracy of Butler put their candidate in
the field as they had a right to do ; the " six
men at Bakerstown," frightened him from the
course, and now the Butler Herald permits
an Allegheny county writer to speak through
its columns in favor of sustaining the disorgan
ir.ation of the Democracy, and disfranchising,
the five thousand Democratic voters of the
XXIId District. This Allegheny county wri
ter who manages the editor of the Butler
herald and dictates to the Democracy of that
county what they must do, also attempts to
dictate to the Post its duty as a party organ.
He makes the editor of the Herald say—
" The Democracy has a right to have a candi
date or not, just as they please, and they have
a right to have whatever platform they please ;
and it is the plain duty of the editor of the organ
of the party to support what is done by the party
If the editor of the party organ is to decide
what the platform ought to be, he may as well
determire who shall be the candidates, and thus
save the party the trouble of holding conven,
This sort of nonsense is not even plausible
and will deceive no one. We admit that the
Democracy '' has the right to have candidates
or not, just as they please; " but after they
have pleased to have a candidate and have
named the man whom it pleased them to have,
it was a queer carrying out of the doctrine of
popular sovereignty for' the "six wise men at
Bakerstown" to sa3 your pleasure is not our
pleasure, and yon shall not have a candidate
It is queerer still for the Ilerald, a Democratic
paper, to sustain this action, when it knows
the Black Republican influences which sin , -
rounded the Conferees, even while in session.
The truth is, this refusal to nominate a can.
didate is wholly and entirely a Black Repub
lican movement to elect Thomas Williams, a
bitter opponent of the Democracy, to Con
gress—it was concocted by Black Republi
cans, and consummated by Black Republi
cans. The Democracy of the District had
nothing to do with it. The Black Republi-.
cans made both tools and fools of the Demo
cratic Conferees in spite of the popular desire
of the people of the District to have a candi
date of their own, and not be compelled to
choose between two Black Republicans or
SEPT. 24, IP&S
Again in regard to the right to have " what
platform they please," we think the members
of the party have no such right. If they
please to stand on the Know Nothing plat,
form, they cease to be Democrats, and no
platform can bind a Democrat to support a
Black Republican. The platform of the Na
tional Democratic party, is composed of es.
tablished doctrines and admitted and well
defined issues. To this all Democrats are
bound to adhere, but when on a local issue
an integral portion of a party runs mad and
ignores all DEMOCRATIC PLATFORMS
ALL DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES, ALL
DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL MEN and ALL
DEMOCRATIC MEASURES, it becomes the
duty of all true Democrats to support the
admitted principles of the organization of
his party, and to resist such action for the
sake of temporary expediency las misguided
friends and se'oret enemies of the party may
It is not as the writer asserts, " the plain
duty of the editor of the organ of the party
to support what is done by the party or
resign." If the party does wrong, as in
the present instance, it is his reprove, and
if possible set it right. If the Herald editor
chooses to admit that party despotism goes
so far that he will lend his influence to
support an Anti-Democratic action of the
party, and an Anti-Democratic candidate,
we pity his weakness and want of manly
independence. The Democratic party is lib.,
eral andclaims no such despotic and illiberal
sway over either its members or the editors
of its organs. The Post claims to speak the
general Democratic views, not of Allegheny
county alone, but of the whole western Dis
trict of Pennsylvania. The Weekly Post has
more readers in Butler county, than the Her
ald has, and we are proud to know that with
its readers throughout Western Pennsylvania,
it is esteemed as sound and reliable Demo
erotic authority- We bold ourselves amena
ble to our subscribers, and to the party for
all departures which we may make from the
principles of the National Democracy, but
admit no right of any man, or set of men, to
dictate to us or require us to "support what
the party has dune," when it does that which
is not Democratic. As to " resigning," we
hold our position not by " appointment," as
the writer in the Herald probably does, and
there is no power which we acknowledge
equal to the favor of the ten thousand Dem
ocratic readers of the Post. When they det,
sire our removal from the chair editorial, we
may sell out : but it is part of our nature
never to resign or yeild a position in which
they sustain us, knowing we are right and
standing on Democratic ground.
We claim not to decide upon platforms of
the party—the Representative - s of the people
in their National Conventions have declared
what are the principles and what are the is
sues of our organization. These we adopt
and sustain, and it,is our duty to frown down
and prevent, so far as lies in our power, all
movements calculated to weaken the party to
which we belong, and whose patriotic princi
ples we are proud to support.
This movement to prevent the election of a
Democratic Congressman in the Twenty-sec
ond District, at a time when the chance of
success is greater than ever before, and
at a time when the candidate elected will
be called upon to pass upon a large num•
her of questions of the greatest import
ance to the people of the country, and, per.,
haps, to aid in electing a President of the
United States,—has no Democratic features
about it. It is a scheme of Black Republi
cans, and as such we and the people of the
District look upon it. Even were there no
chance of electing a Democratic nominee,
and there is a most brilliant chance, it is the'
duty of the Democracy to preserve their or
ganization, and place a candidate in the field,
even should he not receive a dozen votes. The
" six men at Bakerstown" have asked the De
mocracy to desert their organization. This
they will not do. Their agents having been
false to the trust reposed in them, the people
themselves will put their veto upon the ati
tempt of this double triumvirate to override
and prevent their wishes. There will be a
Democratic candidate for Congress in the
Twenty-second District, and the vote which
he will receive will show the " Bakerstown
six," that popular sovereignty is, with the Des
mocracy, something more than a name.
The tendency of political parties is to an
abuse of power. Majorities are apt to over
ride minorities, and in many cases to trample
upon their just rights. No matter how pat,
riodc and popular in its origin a party may
have been at the outetart, the love of power
and position, are so great in the human mind,
that it is apt to degenerate into an organize ,
tion for the aggrandizement of the few, at the
expense of the many. Of this fact we have
annual illustrations about election times. It
is therefore the duty of all honest Democrats,
to watch the movements of those who would
assume to be party leaders with a jealous eye
to expose the short comings of all, and to
rely implicitly upon none. The spirit of
faction is greatly to be deprecated. This
spirit does not seek the general good, but
aims to build up for a time, certain individ
uals at the expense of the majority. . This is
true in national politics, and it is also true
in local politics. In our own county, the
Democratic party has through its convedtion,
resolved itself into a faction for the present
campaign, to elect its ticket upon a local is•
sue alone. The binding force of the party
organization, is not acknowledged by those
who have assumed to lead the forces of the
Democracy. Nay worse than this, they have
even attempted .to bargain with leading mem
bers of the opposition, in order to secure
their votes. All this appears to have been
done upon the ground of expediency—that
the end justifies the means. Those who as
Democrats, protest against this course of ac
tion, are denounced by to factionists as op
posed to the success of the - iNtet. Swallowed
up as they are with their single issue, they
cannot conceive that the honest apd -true
Democrats who do not agree with them upon
a side issue, can be sincere in their advocacy
of the party success. Guided and governed
by this narrow minded view of things, some
of these factious gentlemen prefer to favor
the avowed opponents of the party, rather
than those who, having always adhered to its
doctrines and supported its issues, now refuse
to take part in a course of action which must
ultimately weaken the strength of our organ.
ization. They demand that that should be
made a test of Democracy with which the
Democracy has nothing to do, and those who
refuse the test are bitterly denounced. This
is a factious party despotism, to which no hon.
est, independent:man will for one moment sub
mit. In the position which we occupy as the
conductor of a Democratic journal, we have
taken a stand upon the national Democratic
platform. For having done this, we are aware
that some who have assumed for the time the
position of party dictators, have maligned us
and would do as an injury if it were in their
power. This they cannot do. Our course, we
have the most gratifying and substantial evi
dence is approved by the best and most sensi.
ble Democrats in Western Pennsylvania.—
We do not intend the Democratic influence of
the Post, to be confined to Allegheny County,
and it is not so confined. There are few lo
calities on the western slope of the Alleghe.
nies, where the Weekly Post is not read and
relied upon as Democratic authority. The
misrepresentations of the factionists, misled
as we believe from the true interests of the
party, no matter through what source they
may be promulgated, can never affect in the
slightest degree, either our position or the es•
thnalion in which the Post is held by the
sonnd men of the Democratic party. The
tire aimed at us is wasted. Tha Post speaks
for itself and carries with it the prestige of
truth. Our position is impregnable for it is
right. We laugh to scorn the attacks either
of open enemies of the party or the sneaking
stabs of those who are its pretended friends.

Mr. Bruce are candidates before the people for
official station, and there is no reason why a
" Second ward Democrat" should lug them
in. But, as with the others, whatever they
may have done heretofore, no one will dispute
that now these gentlemen are honest in their
opposition to railroad taxation. The people
are willing to trust them as Democrats at all
events, and they are not willing to trust the
men who lead the opposition.
The people knoW the influences which in,

still in full force in the Opposition ranks, and
