. Democratie State Conventlon We have appoiuted Weduesday, the 9th day of August next, at uoon, as the time, and Whitney's Opera House, Detroit, as the place for holding a Democratie State Convention for the purpose of nominating candidates for State officers and Electora for President and Vice-Piesideut of the United States, and for the transaction of such other business as may come before it. Each couuty will be entitled to four delegates to each Representative to which, under the last apportionment, it is entitled ín the lower branch of the State Legislatu re: but each organized county will be entitled to at least two delegates. No county, except those of the Upper Península, will be entitled to be represented by delegates not residents of such county. We recommend to County Committees that their respective County Conventions be cal led as well for the purpose of nomi nating c&ndidates for county offieers as of electing delegates to the State Conven fion. And we suggest to the organizationsf the severalCongressional Districts and of the Stute Senatorial and Representativa Districts that thcir respective conventions be cal k-d beforo or at furthest immediately after the meeting of the State Couvention. We urge upon committees in calling conventions that they Invite all citizens, irrespectlve of past prrty alïilistious, whojire opposed to continuing the corrupt rule of the past four yeara and to the control of bad men at the seat of government, to unite with us in the primarles held to elect delegates to nomínate candidatcs. While making tuis public recommendation, we desire to direct the attention of tbat large body of the good citizens of Michigan who have hoped and labored for reform within the Republtean party to the fact that the candidate denianded of the late Republican Convention by nine-tonths of the houest niasses of the party - he who had made a welldefined record as the flghting enemy of corruptiou - recelved at no time but 126 out of a total of 756 votea in that Convention! We urge upon their conslderation that this candidate was strong in popular favor, and that his defeat cannot be ascribed to any fear on the part of the Convention that he would not, if uoniinated, cummmand the very largest vote of all the candidate before that body. And we challenge a convincing denial of the assertion that the governing element of that Conveution tvanted no tucetss for the party which would place at the head of the goverumeut a positivo, uncompromising and active fou oi dishouest men and dishouest government !
