In declining' to publish a sworn
statement tins week in regard to the
democratic o)i ivention held at Nor-

iug it to be'btBt for the democracy
I of Cleveland county. While our
columns hava always been opeu to
all for the c< miction of mistakes or
the righting, of wrongs, we deem it
proper in "this instance, to refuse
space to thin article. .Our cause is
unselfish. 'We bad much rather lose
the few dollars we would receive for
this publication, than to publish any-
thing that in any way reflects upon the
democracy oi Cleveland county and
some of the bes.t men in it. Our in-
centive is to bi'iild up and not tear
down and destroy. We beleive in
peace and harmony and not disrup-
tion and strii o. When a man's selfish
ambition out weighs his better judge-
ment and ca uses him to stir up strife
and contenti on among the people, it
is best to lei id him as little assistance
