An anti-monopolist convention will

is a man who wants the monopolists
to divide, a. monopolist is an incor

riding around on special trains and
picking up things that will pay. A
monopolist never holds a convention,

THE DAY TOWARDS OUR
Roscoe Conkling said, the other day
in reply to the queslion of an acquaint
ance and frttndly journalist in regard
to the ex Senator's views uuon political
affairs in the country, that he was tired
of the jealousies and worry of political
life, and that it was impossible for any
one deeply in it to have any friends.
This is true of the life of public men
in America today. We fully believe
there is not a prominent man in Amer
ican politics today who will not, if he
testifies honestly, and candidly from
his i xperience, within his own political
family, admit that Mr. Conkling speaks
the truth when he mildly puts it Hip
: jealousies and worry of poiilical life."
Since the dark days of the rebellion,
Roscoe Conkling has, until within the
past two years, been continually in the
public service, representing the first
State in the Union, in our American
Congress; and during this, his twenty'
years of public life, amid the demoral
izing practices and influences per
vading the public service grow
ing out of the disorganized
state of society and public afiairs
incident to a protracted civil
war. Mr. Conkling has been one
of tha few men of natiosal reputation
and acknowledgod talents, who has
nut at some period been charged with
dishonesty and jobbery ia public af
fairs; yet there is today, scarcely a man
in public life who has been the recipi
ent of moreabuse than Roscoe Conk
ling, and yet the press of the country
cannot let the man alone. They admit
he has been a great uaau, he has declined
to court the rabbie at the hustings, he
has shown asuprim? contempt for the
veleian rtpoi ter aud liar, whose busi
ness in Amciuun puiiuc has been to
manufacture interviews and misrepre
sent public men, he has declined to
fawn and cringe upon those in brief au-
thonty; m other word-, his sell esteem
has been so great that it bus borne him
ubove the hurra rabble of the day; con
sequently he has been branded "an ar
istocrat." It is not necessary to defend
his methods in politics, ho u ay have
been tyranuical among his immediate
followers; but he has nover, to our
knowledge, been accused of being false
or deceitful to either his friends or
enemies; he has stepped down and oui
of politics, and the whole country
Know it, and yet the newspaper press of
the country cannot let him pursue the
profession of his choice in private life
without their mulignaut abuse and
misrepreseutuliyijs. .No sooner does
Mr. llaine cause it to be announced
that lie is engaged in writing a book
than some champion liar immediately
proceeds to manufacture au interview
vvitii Mr. Conkliug, aud announces that
the ex-Senator has concluded to make a
fool of himself, aud write a book in
opposition to Mr. Blaine. This is the
experience to a greater or less extent of
public men of great prominence in this
country today. Mr. Conkling is no cx-

Mr. Tildcn, Mr. Kaudall, lienjamiuS
liutler, Pendleton, Sherman, and hosts
f public men in our nation today are
livimr witnesses of the tear down or
destructive tendencies of the age in re
gard to public men ; it is not the views
nor particularly the measures public
men advocate, but their lives and char
acters, and connections are ruthlessly
assailed with the delibeatc purpose of
driving them from the public service
nu no matter how pure
lives may be.
Mr. Wattekson will have to pay an
other visit to Gramercy Park and issue
another certificate of health and
strength to the old man. A Southern

The southern Congressman denounces
Watterson's description of the demo
cratic age as "cruel and wicked." Mr.
Wattersou will, of course, denounce
the southern Congressman's statement
as a mulicious brimstone-region inspired
fabrication, a Ileudricfc's campaign he.

FOURTH AT WEEl'INU WATER.
The celebration of the glorious
Fourth at Wet ping Water was a great
affair, and called together an immense
crowd of Cass county's yeomanry.
Senator Manderson delivered an elo
quent and graceful oration, aud every
body appears to have been celighteu
with the affair.
I The Grand Ar
my boys had a splendid

.-poken of as a splendid affair "a now
of soul and feast of reason," at this
camp fire. General Manderson also
made the boys one of his characteristic
talks, which will be remembered by all
the old soldiers present as one of the
features of the occasion.
John Bright is as cool as he is clever.
A few nights ago, while addressing an
English audience, he had occasion to
remark: ".Job has said, 'Man is born
uuto trouble as the sparks fly upward,
-but that upnu the whole he did not
au'ree with Job." Whereupon one of
the audience of 4.000 arose, and object
ing to hear Job spoken of so, 6houted:
Three cheers tor Job."' The three
cheers were given with an enthusiasm
which might have discomfited a lies
readv man than John Bright.
