wavering, delight the "fire tried,"
and convince any fair minded Denv
ocrat who will listen. His clear
and forcible explanation of his op
position to: civil rights, so satisfac
tory in itself to both races, is suffi
cient to denominate him as a logi
cal and clear headed debater, pos
sessing excellent qualities of both
heart and mind.
The following is the Republican
ticket nominated in Montgomery
the Conventions which nominated countv ;
Gen. Vance for Congress, and the For Senate, Col. Allen Jordan :
one which nominated candidatesfor for House of Representatives. J.
the Legislature and county officers.
This action of Democrats in Gen.
Vance's own county looks like the
."Merrimon Senatorial . bolt is pro
ducing tares" in tho Democratic
fields of the West. Well, let 'em

Capt. J. J. Davis has been to

dertook to inform thepeopleof that
county that Mr. James II. Headen,
our candidate for Congress, was a
k Secessionist. Now the people of
Chatham know Mr. Headen much
Then $250 00 from $908 25 would
leave an amount of $655 25 that he
would be in arrears. How is he to
raise that? Simple enough. He
has harped and blowed so much
over that "Fraud Commission Re
port." that it is quite plain. Sell
his vote. There is no other alterna
tive, for everybody knows Marsh
cannot boast of being a man of sur
plus means. Especially since he
compelled Uncle Phil Clinard and
other creditors to make comprom ises
that not much more than canceled
It will be remembered that this
same Marshall ll. Pinnix, Jq.,
who now proposes to buy his election
was a candidate in 1872, and was
better than Mr. Davis does, and
they are not disposed to put much defeated by a gentleman much his
faith in anvthiner he savs after at- superior, not enly in character and
tempting to gull them with such
stories as the above.
We learn that the Democratic
Executive Committee of the Sev
enth Judicial District met in
Greensboro, last week, for the pur
pose of requesting Mr. F. N. Strud
wick to retire from the canvass, to
the end that a lawyer might be
nominated for the office of Solicitor.
Mr. Strudwick declined to give way
for any gentleman of that profes
sion, and so the Democracy are in
morality, but in legal capacity,
namely, the Hon. Jacob T. Brown.
Mr. Brown will defeat him again
on the next election day by an
increased majority, after which it is
to be hoped if he concludes to take
a trip to the Jfiedmont Springs
again, that he will have better suc
cess in returning. Poor Pinnix!
We can already see the epitaph that
will be vritten on his tombstone on
