Tho County Contention.
The County Republican Convention
which meets on Saturday is an import
ant meeting. County Officers for two
years (unless a new Legislature legis
lates them all out again) including a
commissioner aud District Clerk are to
be nominated, and eight dtlegates to
the State Convention to nominate Ra
gents for the University and a Su
preme Judge. Also nine delegates to
the District Convention to nominate a
district judge : All thevj oiUcers are
of great imparlance to the County
and the Stata and tho Herald hpe
tha meeting will b harmon
ious, just to different portions of
tho County and tirm in it decisions.
As we probably shall not be there (old
chills and fever having forecloi&d a
fall mortgage on ns this week) and
have no axo to grind with the convaa
tion, asking nothing but its good will
and kind wishes, which the Paper d--
serves, wo oCtT our a lvico now with
tho understanding that it is pGrt:ial
to no ona and :n good humor to a!l.
It is thought that tho general Re
publican ticket in the County can be
elected if no factional strife is inaugu
rated and good men are put hj but
absolutely our very best nma must be
put forward if wo expect to win.
There is a little soro-headed clique
here in Plattsrnoutk who seei by their
actions and sneers to want to carry on
tha fight of last fall and make the
nomiuatiin of deleg ites to State, Dis
trict Conventions, Committees, fcc., a
system of petty revenges, but the good
sense of the county delegations will at
ones we hoie stamp that out and teach
theso gentlemen again who are the
Republican party of Cass county. The
Herald is not in the habit of giving
advice beforehand but in this case a
few words from a party who can over
look the whofe ground may not be
amiS3. Had three Commissioners been
determined on, we should certainly
have advised the re-election of the
whole board, because they are working
harmoniously as a board, there are
many new and important changes iu
the law which they will j::st fairly un
derstand by January, and because of
these chauges the County finances
may be in a critical condition uuti! the
nxt lew. A3 but one Cornmissioaer
is to bo elected, under the decision of
the Supreme Court, for many of tho
same reasons given above, we advise
tha re-nomination of Honry Wolfe.
Ha has proven a safe, sound and care
ful man, there is not much poliliva ia
the matter and should bo but little op
position. Mr. Wolfe with the present
members will but fairly understand
the quirk3 and quibblya cf tho new
system by January and be in prime good
workikg order; to swap him off then
for a new man to educate at the ex
pense of the county' tims would be ad
ditional expense to the tax-payars and
a move that unless sonis factious op
po.'.iliij:! arises between now aad con
vention tima a:-jui3 uncalled fur. Give
u Uncle Henry agVt:i.
We do not think it particularly ad
visable for the County to have a can
didate for Regent at this tiise, but if
the Convention so express their wish
we would like to urge the election of
strong delegates to the State Conven
tion. IJy that we mean not only good,
honest insa, but men that have a wide
acquaintance in the state and know
how Conventions aro organized and
managed. Without this itij useless to
bring ouL a candidate, as thera will be
a bitter fight over the candidates and
only strong mon and able managers
could carry the best Candidate through.
There has fault b?en found with the
Ca3 county delegations to State Con
ventions lately. That the results Lava
not been advantageous to the County
cannot be denied, but the fault lies not
wholly with the delegates. Let us ex
amine the workings and point out a
remedy. The delegation is generally
composed of two or three active poli
ticians and the rest good honest coun
try farmers, they get to the Slate Con
vention, the politicians and town men
know everybody, know who'll be Pres
ident, who on Committees, have a de
finite slate in their mind for their own
benefit and future aggrandizement. Iu
short know what they want and gat
it and the country delegate goes home
somehow feeling that lie has only been
a tail to the machine at best and that
ha really knew very little of what was
going on. Next year he gets mad and
says we'll have no lawyers, no poli
ticians on this delegation, or will out
vote them so far they won't count; but
you can't do it, for the able and strong
man, acquainted with every one, smell
ing every move beforehand i3 bound
to be at the Convention anyway and
frequently has more influence outside
than the delegate insido. This was the
truoble at Lincoln last winter. The
outside Lobby was stronger than the
inside members and had their way in
It is a mistake to try and vote
really able men olf the delegation,
because you think they are politi
cians or a little "trick" even; not
that we advocate supporting immor
al men, but you must learn to make
use of the able man's brains that he
has in his head, for the County's
good, without noticing tx closely tho
physical imperfections or mental id
iosyiicraeies they are cased in. 'Na

A number of important documents
have just been issued by tho U.S. Gov
ernment relating to the conditiea of
trade in different parts of Europe, in
which it is clearly shown that the
working people of this country are
vastly better o.T than those of other
lands. Drunkenness is the prevailing
vico of Rritain, and were it not for this,
tha report says, there would be little
or no poverty aud suffering among the
working population. "Not the least
important lesson to be learnt from
theso reports," says the Scottish Amer
ican Journal, "teaches the working po
pulation of this and other lands that
their fortune and happiness are de
psndent almost entirely upon their
own wills and ways. Habits of sobrie
ty will conduce to contentment and
si!CCf3s in every relation and sphere;
and the working classes of this, and of
all other lauds, will act wisely in re
fusing to be identified with revolution
ary schemes, under whatever name
they may be presented, aud in seeking
to promote virtu?, contentment, and
industry as the primal conditions of
their success in iife."
The First aud the Last Step.
et jonr-r u. oouon.
You may U-ll me there is no harm in
drinking a glass of wine or a glass of
ale. I am r.ot here to dc-eido th'i haim
in it, but I know very well and so do
you that tho tirsi step is not taken
where the last step is taken. I wish to
relate just a little incident which I
have rilaled ouco before. In 184-i I
was invited to be a guest in a family
of wealth and position. I had been
speaking upon the question of totnper
anco only for about 13 months. In
that house was the most bonutif ul boy
I over set my eyes upon, a perf3ct pic
ture, sweet, pure, clean, chaste, with
the broad brow, and Ihoje great gray
eyes, and the ruby lips, and the ruddy
check, the pcariy teeth, the rousded
limb a perfect picture of boyish beau-
ty iind cleanliness an
verv breath was bkc nw
prinno.sus. I lve,1 hiiU. That
could do anything
oa my head f-r hii
t :: nr. I summer-
sacks en tho l.i"v:i to f-ie.tse l.ita; I
carried lii ttj jic-a bAck, aad get on my
hands and knen-s aad 1 h:-m : : do vv.
mo. In tht morning i- w s " Whi c'i
Harry ?" and Harry wouid ccmo bound
ing in, fell of fire aud animation. On
day W8 were romping on the lawn and
a man 3aid to me, "There is a man in
the fieid jast belww tho lawn, lying
rot thc-ro I
do not know." 1 said, "Harry, will yen
go to see tho man ?" He put his hands
in mine, with a hop, skip, and a jump,
and we went down to the place. He
peeped through tha bars, and I looked
over. Thero was the man, the raost
disgusting spectacle I over saw hor
rible. He lay there his face upturned
to ths broad blue tky; a hot August
sun was pouring ils beams upon Lis
purple, porous, greasy face, his mguth
was wida open liko a furnace, his
tongua dry and white, and the Summer
flies buzziiiig arouud him, crawling
across his lips and across his tongue.
It was horribly duuatiiig. Tho little
fellow put his hand into mine and said,
"What is the matter with the man. I
took him away, and we sat on a bank
together. There were flowers surround
ing us, aud I said, "Harry you will
nevor drink?" "No." He was won
derfully excited. "You will never
toucli it?" "No." The boy grew up to
a youth. At seventen years of age
he went to college, lie had never
touched a drop of intoxicating liquor
la his life till then. When I saw him
he was between six and seven years
old. Ten years afterward ha was in
college, aud there he took his first
glass. In 1S63 his mother wrote me
"Come, and spend a day or two with
us, if you can, for God's sake, do some
thing to savo my boy." He married at
twenty one, and when I saw hiru at
tweat3'-eight I started back. He said,
"You do not know me?" No, I do
not know you is this Harry?" "Yes,"
he said, "I was narry once." Rut he
had grown reckless, his gray eye was
bloodshot, he had jowls under his chin,
sensuality was oa his cracked lip, and
lie looked at me with a half-chucklo,
aadusaiii,"I don't wonder you don't know
me; I do r.ot look much as I did when
I r&mpei with you ia the garden; but
I havtt got a boy the very picture of
what I was then. Have you seen my
bov?" "No." "I will call him in
Harry." Ah ! there he is, the little fel
low. Oh! ohl oh! the pity of it the
very fac-siiuile of what Le was, and
ther he stood, his breath foul with al
cohol and tobacco. What a contrast
between the child and the man, and
h was just the very inruige of thai one
when I saw him twwrity-one years ago.
At thirty lie blew out hi brains in the
presence of his wifa and child, mad
with delirium tremens. Where uid
that boy begin to drink? Where did
he take ais first glass? Not in the pub
lic house, not in the grog-shep. not in
tha low resort, not amur.g men and
women beneath Lim in a social posi
tion. At a party given in the college
town they gave him a gloss of wina.
I would not be the manor woman to
have given that boy his first glass of
wine for all that has been wca in by
ingand selling drink from the Grit
discovery cf aiceiiol to the present day. j
His Recent Political Success an Aston-isiier.
New York Special to the Chicago Nuws.
Senator Conkling's achievement at
Saratoga is generally regarded as one
of the most astonishing of political
successes, all things considered.
Amoug people in general it is a mat
ter of humor as well as of sober com
ment; for just whan the Senator was
thought to be the most certainly de
feated, he springs up above his adver
saries. His consummate political craft
and strategy is warmly praised. If
Cornell is elected, it means that Conk
ling will carry the State; and the Re
publicans must have, in the next pres
ideutiHl fight a candidate who is cap
able of gettiug the electoral vote of
New York. If Mr. Conkling proves
by Cornell, that lie can do that, it is a
vital necessity to tho success of the
Republicans that the Senator be given
the nomination. If Cornell is dofeat
tii that will end Conkling's chances
forever. The tone of the press is, in
general, to the effect that the ticket is
not a weak one; and Republican news
papers accept the result as a matter of
duty, if not f choice.
