Banning Comment Regarding the
Latest A'otflg and Those
Who Boj Them.
"Yes, ouht to be pretty good

Biz ii np by the books he reads," siid
one of the clerks in a lending Main
troet book store yesterday even
ing as he made a handle of one of
llerht-rt Hpencei's works, one of John
Stuart Mill, a new edition ot Joephu
and a handsomely embodied copy of
the Revised New Ttstauiant for the
Ai'PtAii man's Sunday reading. "A
man may be in one mood today and
another tomorrow; he mty feel like a
novel now, and something good and
olid, such as these, at another time,
but he always has a preference for
ome one line of books. Occasionally
a customer has a round abint.way of
letting you know what he wants.

The customer asked in a careless
BO't of way if they had received any
new works on political economy, and

.Receiving an ancwer in the nega
tive he looked about him in a con
fustd sort of way for a minute aud
then departed empty handed.
"I have to gj through Unit same
thing a duzon times a day," said the
clerk wearily, as ho came back to
whore the newspaper man stood."
Konie.imes they will paw over the en
tire labile of periodica s, read away
bard for two or three hours and then
ask for something they know we don't
get. It makes me very tirod. Of
course it is understood that anyone
may come in when he pleasea. hunt
about for something to read, and if he
seoe nothing to strike bis fancy, walk
out. But it is the chronics I am talk
ins about ; the mon who make a daily
habit of that s jrt of thing and never
buy a book or a paper. Talking about
fmptra, now I can give you an idea of

We clean . about $0 worth of papers

who ak na to pat them, down on the

papers for them, and never pnt their

"Yes; they go a good deal faster
than bound bojks. When the thing
waa t tatted the Beailde Library waa
all the go for a loug time, but every
publishing house lu the country now
gets thorn out. Home of them are
very attraotivoly printed and others
come in all sorts of shapes, but if you
will notice the titles fw of them are
solid." The man who likes to read a
good book as a rule wants to keep it
where he can lofor to it or read It
again. Home men read by fits and
starts. They will devour a dcnn or
two books, and then perhaps we will
not sea them again for months. Others
come in regularly four or five times a
year and get twoor three volumes at a
'Do yon notice any improvement in
the pnblin taste?"
"Yes, I do," was the reply. "I

more people read b joks now than ever
before, and they aie b.tter posted.

Among the various camps that I

fuilv competent, scrupulously honest

nominating him. x x.

Tb a Hon. Josiuh Pattercou and Mr.
James Phslan spoke to quits a large
audience here yesterday..
The c invention whicti was held to
cominato a cendidtte for County Rep
risentative and to selectrdelogates for
the Congressional Convention worked
rather slowly and it was late before
the speaking began.
Mr. Phelan made the opening speech
and surprised his ht arers by his easy
address. Complimentary remarks
made in an undeitine were uttered all
over the bouse. Those who thick Mr.
Phelan cannot speak can't tell the dif-
feronca between an orator and a dumb
mau. His words were choice, scholar
ly and fluent. On account of limited
time he omitted much that he would
have said, though he announced that
he intentionally did not go into those
details which would be moat properly
discussed before the people at large.
His sneech showed in every sentence

From a careful insceetion of tbe
delegates it is found that the delega
tion from Fayet e is almost a unit tor
Mr. Phelan. Mr. Patterson has some
warm friends heie, but they are
la gely in the minority, and what
there ate will not be in a po
sition to do him much good in the
Convention. His speech was rather
the ingenious speech cf the lawyer
than a liboral di:CUF!on of political
issues, except when be became too
liberal and got ultra. With the poii
tiventss of bis ut'erancessand warmth
his paliti al standpoints Bhou'd bave
been more clearly defined. The
Colonel has a sly way of entbosing
bimself and hesrers sometimf s when
there is not much to enthnee over.
Wlih his course clearly denned he
would make a rouaing speech. In
tbair sprechee here Mr. Phelan showed
a broader and mo e liberal view of
the political issues before the people
and alluded to a few of the worst
evils which aVoald be first attended
to. Jno. S. R. Cowan, of Moscow,

fight if he is beaten. tcito.
A Change far tho Belter.
To the Editor! of the Appeal:
It ri.iiuiros but little sharpsighted-
nesi to see that politic, or rather the
methods of candidates running for
oflice, are becoming virtually tbe same
as what tbey were in the bo called
good old limes, via.: joint discussions,
which havo this advantage that the
betl man will have the beet chance of
fitting into oflice. By the following
t will be teen how easily the above is
proven. Go to a meeting; you listen
to one candidate, then the other; be
fore the second candidate has finished

liberal minded and who is most likely
to hold to his promises to the people.
look at tbe other p an. A Democratic
or Republican meeting is called, and
cortain mon are boomed by their re
spective pa ties for an oflice, naturally
alter having contttbuted enonghsoop.
The candidate rats, speaks a few
words, says he is a solid Democrat or
Republican and is loudly cheered, be
cause the meeting ia compoecd of the
followers of one paity only, or very
few of the other party, who
hoot at him and whistle. How
oue aided this latter plan looks, and
how partisan liko. Once more, take a
meeting where a joint dh(usion by
the candidates from both parlies is
going on, Republicans and Democrats
mingle fneiy. the vIhurs of lnth can.'

on an Ignorant but rich candidate are
thus saved and cast for the moat intel
