Thb Municipal Council of Obin

Tni Auguita Chronicle sapgestu that
fallowing the advice of Cardinal Gib
bons to the Catholic congregations of
the United States these of the several
Pretestant faiths contribute whatever
they can of money, say on the Sunday
after next, to pay for the repaiiing of
thechnrcbej almost wrecked by the
recent earthquake. The Catholics are
to contribu'e next Sunday, and their
example should be followed at once.
It is very much to the credit of the
Miashaippi River Commission that its
members in a body have determined
to foil the cowardly attempt of the
House of Representatives to neutral-

to make an appropriation ' to
pay them a well deserved

Thb Atpbal cordially seconds the
suggestion made by eeveral of its con
temporaries that the President appoint
Gan. A, P. Stewart to be Minister to
Austria. The General is a West
Pointer by education. He graduated
from that celebrated fchool in the
same class with Gens. Buell and Rose
crans, and stood so high that he was
appointed to the corps of engineers.
Since the close of the war he has been
identified with two of the best
of the Southern schools of learning
the Law School at Lebanon and the
University of Mississippi, of "which he
was chancellor. Asa euholar he stands
high, and the exalted character for
which he had credit in the army he
has maintained with unblrarsbed in
tegrity. Dignified and mcdett, Gen.
Stewart, as its representative at the
Court of Austria, would reflect credit
upon the country. The State of
Tennessee presents him for that mis
sion with pride, snd the State of
Mississippi indorses him with pleas
W print in another column a com
munication signed "Democrat" that is
full of ill temper and characterized
by very bad blood. "Democrat"
should have gone to the Democratic
County Convention and endeavored
to carry his point there. The aeseion
oi mat Douy auoraea mm nis op-
p utunity. So long ai it was in aes
sion he had a chanoe for
say. When it adfournel that
chance went, and he was forever
barred. If conventions are to have
any weight their dicta must be final.
If this was not the rule every man
would be a law nnto himself and in
et sad of compact parties held together
by principle we should have the
chaos and confusion incident to indi
vidual whim, opinion or view. This
in a constitutionally governed country
like ours would never do. If "Demo
crat" is a Democrat, as we believe him
to be, he will support the ticket and
bide his time.
Thb people of Cincinnati are to be
congratulated upon the selection of
Mr. Albert W. Whelpley to fill the
very important position of Public LI
branan. Mr. Whelpley hai all his
life been a book man, a reader and
lover of. books as well as a printeraod
dealer in them, and his sympathies are
with the masses, as has been proven
by his admirable management of the
dime lecture course in Cincinnati for
so many years. He is just the man
lor tbe place. He knows the taste of
the people and will, we predict, cater
fjr them co closely as to meet the
varied wants of the multitude without
failure. Mr. Whelpley is a man of in
tegrity in the highest sense of the word.
He is conscientious about everything
he undertakes. Boy and man, he has
always been the same true in the
performance of duty, true in his friend
ships and tine to his convictions of
right Cincinnati has honored a good
man and ' one every way worthy in
putting upon Mr. Whelpley so weighty
and responsible a trntt.
Monopoly in any form is a curse.
It means r'ches for the few and op
pression and misery for the many.
The latest ot these gigantio machines
that like the Car ot Juggernaut crushes
the life out of all who stand
in Its way, is the American Oil
Trust Company. It owes its
origin to greed, to an insatiable greed
that seek 8 to force the planters of the
South to sell their cotton seed for
little or nothing in order that it may
increase the profits of its stockholders.
Against this the planters propose
to unite. And they are riijht. Their
plan and purpose is printed on an
other page. It is feasible and prac
ticable, and if carried out must turn
the tide of ruin in the other
direction. This is to be deplored.
It is better to live and lit live, and
we suggfst that just and Chretien
policy to the managers of the Trust
Company. It is net sensib'e to invite
ru n in any direa'ion. Fair play is a
jewel that all may wear and wear hon
orably and wita pride.

"from the day he was born. Let me

stance ot now he managed thinirs.

Ha would net r u"ish us, because it

early in the mo cing to the barn yard.
We knew what was coming. He took
a shing'e and bored holes through it
with a gimlet, and the be made us
bend over a log. You can imagine
wnat was tne result, lie pumstied
Jim and Nat and me. and we were all
crying when be went up to Bjb, who
was leaning over the log waiting his
turn. Father raised the caddie, snd'
denly Bob pulled a half dollar out c-f
his peck;!, and twisting bis head
around at father with a moet
humorous expression of countenance,
he said : 'Dad, I'll give you this to let
me off,' at tbe same time offering
father a half dollar. We were all
watching bim as intently as oar pains
would let u?. father stood with tbe
paddle uplifted. Bob continued in his
leaning position, holding the half dol
lar between his uplifted Sogers with
that grimace unalterable on his feat
ures. Bob wes cool aa a cucumber.
Father at length broke out in a laugh
and bade Bjb to be up and off in a
twinkling. Bob sprang to his feet and
slipped his half dollar back in his
pocket, wa ked by ns to the house,
making faces as he went by.
"mat's the sort oi a bov Jiob was.
He wou'd steal our marbles and we
could never catch him. He'd play all
sorts of jokes on us, but we could
never catch him. He'd take more
liberties abont the house than any of
us, but somehow he managed to es
cape the punishment, while if we did
the same things we'd get a thrashing
That's the sort of a chap he wa, Dd
tbat happy faculty of always alighting
on his It et has followed him from tbitt
good day to this. He always could
tell the soft side of a person. lmost
f (0m the days of his infancy, and be
never failed' to make the most of his
knowledge. Yes. Bob has ever been
an artfnl dodger."
Xhe laughter which this fraternal
sal y had created having ceased, the
same inquisitor asked Bob of the boy
hood of Alf. "Well," said Bob, with
a merry twinkle in his eye, "Alf had
more temper than I; he had more
fight than I did, but I had more fun.
He wis Quick to resent an in inrv and
equally quick to forgive. Alf was
always fond of hunting. When a
mere lad, he would go ont on tbe
mountains with an old man who lived
near u?, and camp out for weeks at
tbe time. I believe be had rather
hunt now than do anything. Alf was
my favorite bother, if I had a favorite,
and I think he thought tbe most of
me a'thongh he never told me so, for
he always did have a way of conceal
ing his affection from those he loved.
Father thought there was more ont-
come in Alf tban in any of ns, but
brother Jim, who invented tbat gnn
of which you have heard, is tbe
smartest. Alf always was a keen
one. You may ba sure he could
work a scheme as good as any
body. I'll tell you an incident of his
manhood which illustrates bis boy
hood. When he was running for tbe
Legislature there was a big Bapt st
vote which he wanted and wanted
badly. One day be went to a baptis
ing. The preicher had a number of
converts in ihe creek. Alf, as big as
life, stood among tbe people on the
shore singing for dear life. As fast as
a person was baptized and s arted for
tbe shore Alf would wade into tbe
creek, and singing as he advanced
with his hymn book in one hand, he
would extend tbe other to the
dripping penitent and escoit him or
her to the shore. Alf got the vote of
every Baptist in the district. That's
the sort of a fellow he wan."
