Tite Texas ex-confederates held a re
union at Dallas Texas last week, in which
one Gen. Stanley spoke of the siguificence
of "these re-unions" saying in that con
nection "The principals we establish we
hand down to our children." and then
the General proceeded to retail a very
cheap lie about Gen. Tuttle and his reg
iment calling the Department Commander
of Iewa a' cattle thief etc. The sentiments
these brigadiers hand down to their
children are about on a par with those
of Yancey, Lamar and Davis &Co hand
ed down in 1861.
The fact has come to light that dem
ocratic officials in the general land office
have certefied the accounts of certain
government surveyors, duplicating pay
ments ammounting to several thousands
of dollars. The 6um of $70,000 haying
been erroneously paid on California ac
counts alone. There appears to be con
siderable loosness in the manner in which
business is transacted in certain bureas of
the treasury department under the pres
ent administration, notwithstanding the
extravagant promises ot "reform" which
were made by the democrats in 1884, if
they were only placed in power. Dem
ocrats are unexcelled in the matter of
making promises, but when it comes to
performing them well, that is altogether
different, they don.t do it.
The republican county convention of
Lancaster county, meets the railroad rate
issue squarely and endorses the state com
missioners in their efforts to procuro rea
sonable rates from the R. R. Co's. of the
state for the producer and trader. It has
often occurred to ub, that certain railroad
magnates create great reputations for
themselves, as brainey fellows and mana
gers, in making their roads pay large net
earnings by straight out robbery of the
public. If this constitutes greatness as a
railroad official, we have about enough
great men of that class already. If any
one can meet and explain away the "cold
figures" contained in Judge Mason's last
open latter to 3Ianager LToldrege, we
would like to see it done. Judge Mason
and the commission haye opened up the
railroad controversey upon a basis and in
a manner tho common herd can under
stand and it is growing interesting. We
rejoice at the era of figures in this con
troversey. The anarchist circles of Chicago are
said to be considerably stirred up over
the prospect of an early decision from
the supreme court refusing their con
demned brethern a new trial. The pub
lic press is quite strung in its hope that
the court will find no ground on which
to grant a new trial, and if a new trial
shonld be granted, nine chances
out of ten they would never
travel the gibbet rout. Such an escape
would be considered a great victory by
the anarchists of America, even though
the condemned men bo imprisoned for
lifr, and the revolution workers woul
swarm irom ineir noies to organize ana
criate a national disturbance. But if the
leaders bo hung as per their sentence it
will bo a blow to anarchy in America
from which it will never recover. There

as yet has been spoken of except D. A
Campbell, the present incumbent, and as
he is now only in his first term, and as it
it the unwritten law of politics to give
a good officer a second term, in all pro
bability he will be renominated.
For County Clerk we hear of only two
aspirants: Bird Critchfield and Bob
Wilkeson, both of Weeping Water. For
Registrar of Deeds, no one has been
named except Wm. II. Pool, who was
elected to the office two years ago, but
on account of a technicality in the lawf
did not hold the office. The feeling
seems to be pretty general in favor Jlr.
Pool's unanimous nomination. For
Sheriff there are quite a number who are
ready to lay themselves U)on the altar,
among whom, as we learn, are J. C.
Eikenbary, the present incumbent; B. C.
Yeomans and Dave Woodward, of
Weeping Water ; Wm. Dallas, of Stove
Creek ; Cooley, of Tipton, and possibly
some others. For County Superintend
ent of Instruction no one as yet has been
named except the present incumbent,
JIaynard Spink, who is now serving his
first term. Willett Pottenger and C. A.

Bishop Harris Dead.
The daily papers of last Saturday, an
nounced the sad intelligence that Bishop
William L. Harris D. D., L. L. D. of the
Methodist Episcopal church died at his
home in New York City on Friday even
ing, f heart disease.
Deceased was born near JIansfield, O.,
Nov. 14, 1887, and at his death was near
ing his seventieth birthday, lie was
converted and joined the church when in
hia seventeenth year, and in the service
of the same he spent his entire life, ne
became a preacher in 188G, and joined
the Michigan Conference in 1837. He
served in the pastorate until 1840 whem
he became connected with the education
al work of the church. In th is relation,
he spent four years as tutor in the Ohio
Wesleyan University. In 1848, by the
unanimous request of his conference he
became principal of Baldwin Institute,
now Baldwin University; from there he
returned in 1851 to the university atDel
eware and took charge of the Academical
department, and in 1852 was elected to
the chiar of chemistry and natural history
in the same institution, wich place he held
for eight years. From this position he
wa3 elected assistant corresponding secre
tary of the Jlissionary society where he
served, kaving been twice re-elected, un
til 1872, when he was elected bishop.
Whilo occupying this office he traveled
extensively, in this country, and also cir
cumnavigated the globe in the interests
of the missionary work of the church.
He wa3 a member of every general con
ference of his church from 1856 to 1872
and was elected secretary of every session
during that period without opposition
In 1874, ho was sent by his church as a
representative to the British Wesleyan
conference, and at the same time was
commissioned by the American Bible so
ciety as its representation at the session
of the British and Foreign Bible Society,
These facts indicate the honor injwhich
he was held, not only by his own. church
but by the christain church and the
He was a man of strong convictions,
strong will, and great determination.
He despised any thing like self seeking
and political trickery in the conferences
over which he presided, and many times
used his authority as a bishop to break
rings and destroy plans laid by scheming
men in official places. lie was a clear
and forcible preacher, nis sermons were
eminently bibical. The writer beard it
remarked of one of his conference ser
mons that "it contained more scripture to
the squre inch than was ever preached
at this conference." He had a peculiar
power in reading the scriptures before an
audience, of bringing out and impressing
the real meaning.

lost a leader and the world a champion
of every good cause. Truly, "A Prince

interested directly or iudirectly in the
rum traffic, who fatten upon the spoils
it levies from the drinking element, or
cam their daily bread in some oecupa
tion connected with the manufacture and
salo of some one or other of tho numer
ous forms in which rum is presented to
its patrons. They are, of course, bitterly
opposed to any interference with the un
holy traffic. So also aro the additional
tens of thousands nay. hundreds of
thousands of weak and vicious men
around whom the infernal rum thirst has
woven a spell as potent and as ovil as
that of the fabled CincE, the enchantress
whose maeric turned her admirers into
grunting swine, wallowing in their own
filth. These two classes are, from the
very nature of things, tho uncompromis
ing enemies of those who are working to
destroy tho traffic, banish the saloon and
pulverize the rum power
To these are opposed those who have
carefully considered the creat drink
problem in all its bearings, and have ar-
ived at the conclusion that there is but
ono thinjr to be done to stop the swell
ing stream of poverty and degredation,
vice and crime, that is the result of rum
and that one thing is, to destroy the traf
fic by the prohibition of the manufacture
and sale of the infernal poison. They
see that there has grown up, through the
enormous profits ot this unholy minister
ing to the appetites of weak and depra ved
humanity, a formidable array of men
banded together by the strongest of pure-
ily human motives, self-interest, to not
only perpetuate the damnable traffic, but
to battle for its extension, until the great
mas of fallen humanity shall have bowed
beneath the sway of rum, in order that
their ill-gotten gains sua 11 be still farth
er increased. This phalanx of interested
manufacturers and dealers, both whole
sale and retail, is conveniently described
by the one phrase, "the rum power."
Besides these two classes of the com
munity the mends ot prohibition on
the one side, and the rum power en th e
other there remains a great mass of
people, who stand as regards tho matter
of prohibition, upon what may be called
neutral cround. JIany of them have
never considered tho matter sufficiently
to have an intelligent opinion upon the
suhiect one way or another, home, as
the result of an insufficient examination,
believe that temperance is a matter for
the individual, and so long as they each
ive temperately they have discharged
their duty to the state. Their attitude
is like that of Cain when he answered,
"Am I my brother's keeper?" Then
there are those who have a misty idea
that the making and selling of rum is
"business," and that business ia always a
benefit to the community; hence that to
put a stop to this damnable traffic is to
injure "business." and therefore are in
clined to look askause at the prohibition
movement. This class looks at it in a
hundred different ways; but none of
them have so studied the question in all
its bearings that they are able to discuss
it reasonably, or have any intelligent
opinion upon it.
This great neutral class of the com
munity should be the first objective point
of prohibition effort. It is a ead fact
that the friends of prohibition are divided
among themselves as to tho best method
of reaching the desired end. They all
agree that state and national prohibition
is the ultimate aim, but they cannot be
come united upon one line of effort.
Their strength is frittered away in di
vided work. There are those who are
laboriog earnestly to build up a separate
political party on this one issue; they
are working for a party first, to the end
that, when that party becomes a majority
in the state, prohibition can then be
reached through its means. We have
frequently discussed the practical objec
tions to this plan, and need not recapitu-
ate them here. There are also
those who are laboring to convert each
individual member of tho community
nto a total abstainer, so that the rum
traffic may die a natural death through
ack of patronage. And there are those
who, like the Blade, feel that any step
which harasses and injures the rum power
any law or statute which curbs its power,
any effort which increases the number of
those who believe in the extinction of
tho rum power, is to be commended and
supported, as a moye in the right direc
The real thing to do is to convince all

that prohibition is a wise, a just, and a
a proper thins. It is sometimes difficult

the public. Men who have been roused
to a full comprehension of the magnitude
of this giant evil of rum become weary I
and impatient over the slow progress the '
great reform seems to make. They .fail
to remember that time is a vital clement
in any such mevoiuent. It is useless to
lorco it upon a state where the public is
not educated up to its support. The
recent campaign in Texas affords a lino
illustration of this. From a strategic
point of view, the forcing of the voto
upon constitutional prohibition at this
time was a mistake.
We believe that work upon the local
option plan is at present the most advis
able. Prohibition by this method be
comes effective in all parts of the 6tato
which are educated up to it. And each
town or village or county whicli votes
prohibition becomes a potent educator
to the people of all tho surrounding
country. The leaven spreads faster, and
the work is facilitated. The tiino comes
much sooner at which a majority of the
people of the entire state favor prohibit

the state constitution. Local option is
not the end in itself, but a means to that
end. It is a most potent means where
