The Era has finally got down to
work in its contest with the local
editor of the Democrat, Mr. Crites.
and the public may expect some de
velopments, if they be neither rich,
rare nor rucy. Hensley closes a
rather personal at tide on Mr.Crites's
non-election to the legislature, with
these words :
"But when, through his inherent
stupidity and want of foresight as a
political' leader, he was sucked under
the waves of defeat, a voice cried out
from that overwhelming strangula
tion, yonr Mcft-handed compliments
and faint praise' has helped to damn
The boasts of the Democracy in
this county two years ago were so
loud that many Republicans who
voted for some of the ticket then at
their very earnest and oft-repeated
solicitation have concluded to vote
straight hereafter. This reminds us :
A Democratic candidate stepped up
to a thorough-paced Republican and
solicited his vote, plying him with
arguments of various kinds. Finally,
after listening very patiently to what
he had to say, the Republican sov
ereign inquired whether his friend
would vote for a Republican, if he
would give him his vote. "Oh, no,"
said the Democratic candidate, "that
would be against my principles."
Just remember this when a man
solicits your vote against your prin
ciples. The Democrats of Platte county
cannot afford to allow convicted
thieves and pimps to sit in their
conventions as delegates. Any such,
even if regularly appointed, should
be promptly expelled for the good
name of the party.
The Columbus Democrat, one of
the party organs recognized by the
Co. Convention, had the above to
say last Friday of some of its mem
bers. If any Republican paper had
even intimated that there were
"convicted thieves and pimps" iu
that convention there would have
been a hue aud cry raised whose
echo would not die for many a day.
TVe suppose, now that the nomina
tions are made, " the convicted
thieves and pimps" will not only be
"allowed" to vote, but their support
will be most anxiously solicited.
Hare "convicted thieves and pimps"
no rights that a Democratic news
paper is bound to respect? Is the
Democratic party also to be a party
of Puritanic principles?

I'e five little angels waiting for me
On the beautiful banks of the crystal sea;
Forever free from sorrow audp.iin,

Never in erring path to rove,
Safe in the bosom of Intinite Love,
Evermore, evermore, walkingin light,
My little angels, robed in white.
I've live little angels to welcome nie
When I, too, shall stand by the crystal
When the great Refiner hath fitted me,
In me his own image can clearly sec.
When iu the robe of Christ's righteous
My soul hall see the home of the blest,
On the beautiful banks of the crystal sea,
My little ones there will welcome me.
