Judge Bvnum's Sentiments. In view
of recent publications made about Judge
Bynnm, the following paragraph from the
HickorTziVess is fraught with interest :
"In conversation with a prominent
Republican ot Bandy township, he told
u'b yesterday that he had received a pri
vate letter from Judge W P Bynuni, one
of the republican leaders of the State,
desiring to know the sentimeuts of the
voters of that party in his section, aud
advised him not to support Dr. York tor
Governor, but to vote for Scales. Our
informant told us that he could scarcely
fiud a Republican in that section who will
support Blaine aud York."

Doctors, Ramsay and York, were profuse
iu their predictions of what the RepubM-

tions were divided off into sections, with
printed snspension pieces marking the
place of each. Tne whole arrangement
was excellent and the Salisbury band
lent its presence to enliven the occasion.
Mnj. Bingham, at the conclusion of his
excellent remarks, called Mr M H Piunix,
of Davidson to the chair as temporary
presiding officer. This gentleman made
a nrst-rato speech and subsequently
proved himself a capital chairman.
Mr, T. B. Eldridge, of Davidson, was
chosen temporary secretary, and the roll .

The nomination of tb$ gentleman by
the dj strict convention which met here
but Thursday was a most agreeable sur
prise to his friends in Rowan aud else
where, and of course was a surprise to
bim. He had been frequently spoken of
for the place, and his friends here had
resolved to propose his name ; but the
chances of success were not regarded as
very flattering against so many other
prominent gentlemen in the district. It
was well known that Mr. Armfield had a
large following iu Iredell, Catawba and
YadUu ; and that Messrs. Pin nix and
Robbius of Davidson vera strong men iu
that direction ; aud we knew of Mai ma
duke Robbius in Randolph, J. A. Wil
liamson in Davie, and Mr. Brown of
Montgomery. It was foreseen that Mont
gomery would probafely unite with Ran
dolph or Davidson and Davie with Rpw
an. But it was impossible to see to the
end, and therefore the friends of no one
candidate could know who would be
nominated. The almost unbouudedjoy
of the Rowan delegation on finding that
thsir favorite had been chosen was there
fore most natural and grateful. And so
it would have been fer the delegates from
any other part of the district under the
We are not prepared to say that it is
pot the best nomination that could have

that it was the best the best for the peo
ple who are to be served. We kuow that
Mr. Craige will bring iuto the service if
elected all his energies to perform his
duties faithfully and well because it will
be his duty to do so. That it was best
for him personally, is a very doubtful
flatter. We speak our individual con
fictions on this poiut. No man can sac
rifice a good business at home and go te
Congress without the hazard of sustain
ing lues in the end. Observation sus
tains this proposition as a rule, so that
he reflecting friends of a man nominate d
to Congress scarcely know whether to
offer him congratulations or ceudelence.
For our part we pity the man who is sub :
jected to this hazard, notwithstanding,

There is considerable trouble iu the
camp of the republican party iu the oth
district. W. H. Wheeler was nominated
for Congress by a com rent ion which met
in Greensboro, a man not thought of
before. A small, packed convention of
revenue officers, it is alleged, did the
work. This has stirred up lots of pro
tests, the calling of another convention,
&c. It is none of our funeral, so we
shall not recite particulars but leave
them to settle on one, two, or three can
didates just as it suits them.
One of the Radical speakers, at their
con vuntion here last Tuesday, acted the
vulgar clown hy casting scurrilous slurs
and cou tempt upon many of the noblest
ladies of the State because they favored
prohibition in 1881. The language he
used is too low to reproduce. Shame,
that any mau should so degrade himself
as to resort to such extremes ; though we

cou tract is very generous. Accept my
hanks. But I want more. You spoke
of your friend Caldwell, who has the
flour coutract, as willing to dispose of a
share of his interest to me. I wish he
would make the proposition definite.
Tell him that I feci I shall not prove a
ueaunead in tne enterprise, l see various
channels iu which I know I can be
useful. Siucerely vour friend,
P. S. Iu looking over my .order books
I find that when Mr. Caldwell delivered
the last lot of flour there was some irreg
ularity, which induced the commissary
of the army to refuse acceptance. I
promptly cut the red tape by ordering
t e on iisary to accept the delivery at
once, so that I saved Mr. Caldwell much
trouble in getting the flour passed and in
obtaining his money. Tims, without
knowing him, I did him a favor which
must have ben worth much to him.
Let him hurry up his proposition to
me. G. W.
Or in Mr. Lincoln's private correspon
dence they might look for a letter some
what like this :

of all the old county officers shows that

their public duties, and striving to please

The Radicals and Liberals say that the

which I can make myself useful. By the
way, can you tell Mr. Caldwell that I
did him a great favor some time acta
without knowing him. A large lot of
belts and cartridge boxes were detained
here because the ordnance officers want
ed more time to inspect them. But the
troops needed them, and I ordered them
to be hurried to the front, and Caldwell
got his money, ou seet I want him to

Well, if such letters could be found
among Washington's and Lincoln's mi.
vate correspondence, and if it could be
further discovered that Washington aud
Liucoln had publicly declared that the
interest they had in those contracts was
only such as any other citizen might have
purchased on the Boston market, aud
that they could not have exercised any
power with regard to those contracts, be-
cause in the one case it was the business
of the commissary, aud iu the other of
the Ordinance Department j and f Wash
