The friends of the various candidates
worked all day with untiring energy
and at the close the result showed that
the bolters had elected their candidates
for councllmen but their cemetery
trustee and treasurer were defeated.
On the township ticket S. D. Bacon,
O. Herrick and II. Mason were elected
trustees; J. W. Wilbur, clerk; R. N.

Death of William Howk, Ktsq.
Tbe very brief illness of this well-
known citizen had scarcely prepared
his immediate friends and neighbors to
be otherwise tban shocked at his death,
which occurred at two o'clock Monday
morning, the 7th Inst.
Air. Howk had. during the week, spok
en of himself as in vigorous health and
was in his usual excellent spirits up to
the Thursday previous to his death. That
morning, after doing his chores,
he shoveled the heavy snow, that had
fallen during the night, from the walk
in front of his house and afterwards
walked with ua to our office, intending
to be present at the dedication service
After getting hiB mail he remained a
w hile looking over the morning papers.
but feeling badly, went home instead oi
going to the church. His wife prompt
ly resorted to such remedies as were in
dicated, and nothing serious was appar
ent in his symptoms that day ; he only
felt unaccountably tired and used up,
as he expressed it. During the night he
suffered from pain, soreness and fever
ishness, which however he did not refer
to any pulmonary difficulty. The next
day, when medical advice was called.
his prostration was disproportioned to
any active symptoms oi illness, ana ne
obtained temporary relief, though ap
prehending tbe real dimcnity, grave
fears were entertained on account of
the typhoid indications. Saturday noon
be took more nourishment, and relished
it better than he had before, and sat up
a little, looking over letters and business
documents. But the latter part of the
afternoon he grew rapidly worse, and
from that time the progress of the di
sease was swift, and he as cognizant of
the probable result as any one around
him. Sunday forenoon be conversed
freely with those who came in, and
with all his characteristic force and
clearness of intellect, arranged some
business matters, gave directions con
cerning temporal affairs, expressed his
confidence of his acceptance with tho
Redeemer, and a few hours later lapsed
into unconsciousness, passed from the
appearance ot suffering into a rentlu
sleep, and quietly ceased to breathe.
Wm. Howk waa born Jan. ivu lsus.
at Lee, Berkshire county. Mass ; was
married August lSlh ltttO, to Miss
Charlotte E. Herrick, of the same place,
and has resided in Wellington since
1836. Emma, their only child died in
1853, in her twenty-first year. An
adopted daughter, Mrs. Irene Clark,
who lived with them from 1856 till her
marriage ten years later, resides at
Granite Falls, Minnesota.
The subject of this notice wai the
last surviver of his father's family, but
had been so uniformly healthy in body,
and his faculties were so unimpaired,
his promise of ten years more of active
life were better tban those of many
younger men, and his acute illness and
sudden death seemed accidental as
much as on account of his years, and
was what might have occurred at ' any
age. He had been eo long identined
th the Interests ot Wellington, anu
his council sought by so many, few citi
zens were better known to all its in
habitants, and perhaps none would be
so universally missed, for a great
many years he had served as Justice of
the Peace, and it is worthy oi mention
and proof of hia uncommon sense and
rare judgment, that a decision of his
was never reversed In a higher court.
Probably no man in Wellington who has
not made it a profession, so well under-
rtood, or was better capable of giving
counsel in the minor questions ot law.
In politics he was a itepuoucan, and
took an interest in all matters of JNa-
tional and local importance A careful
reader, a clear thiDfccr, a good writer lor
a man educated in his time, he was en
terlainiog and instructive as a compan
ion, and able to give an intelligent rea
sob for his opinions, i rom his warm
friends he sometimes differed ia matters
of expediency, but could do it without
bitterness, and tenacious ox everything
he believed to be right and just,' he ac
corded to others equal liberty of con
science, and treated with good-natured
ccurtesv their opposite views. Ho took
radical ground on the temperance qa ;s-
tion. and was interested in every good
work for the elevation and happiness oi
humanity, and his helpful kindness and
care extended to an uod s creatures.
Little children were his fast friends ; his
neighbors who knew him most intimate'
ly respected him thoroughly, and es
teemed him as a valued friend. His
genial soul found points of sympathy
with almost all. and we nave yet to near
one who had iust cause tj speak ill of
him. Sj helpful and oblhriog wns he in
disposition that a wide circle will miss
him, and mourn his death as a personal
A molel of strict integrity and fairness

him found no difficulty in preserving
pleasant relations. Honestly intolerant
of sham, and of everything mean and
low and unfair ; tbe weii-aisposea
found in him Quick recognition, and
nothing to fear from this upright man.
To benevolent and public enterprises
he was a cheerful and liberal contnou
tor. When the new fil.E. Church was
built, of which society ho was at that
time a member, no one gave more large'
ly and no One made eo great sacrifices of
time and labor, un name is deserving,
and will ever be held in grateful re mem
brance by those who have been Dene'
fitted br his munificence. ' -
To his unblemished morality was ad
ded Christian faith. During the wri
ter's acquaintanca with him, and partic
ularly within the last year or two he
has frenuentlv and freely conversed
with us upon religious subjects, and al'
wars impressed us. independently of
his exemplary life and Christian acts, as
one who had an intelligent comprcnen
sion and personal knowledge of what is
understood as spirituality, or experimen
tal re'igioa. Just before bis last sick
ness. in a conversation with bis wife in
which ther spoke of tho frequency of
sudden death, and of a mutual desire to
know of each other s confidence with
reference to the future life, he satisfac-
torilv expressed his hope in Christ.
The memory of his consistent life,
his fresh and youthful spirit, his earnest
d:gnltv of soul and the rugged trutniui-
ness of his character, will live after
him, but his genial face and cheerful
greeting and kindly deeds will be great
ly missed. Speaking of bis virtues in
this esse, there is no occasion for a judi
cious and charitable silence concerning
grave faults. If he had them, we did
not find them out. Mr. Howk very
hiehlv appreciated the bleasing of good
health, and frequently and gratefully re
ferred to his freedom from the common
ailments of increasing age, showing
much svmoathv for others who were af
flicted or bereaved. His brief suffering
and cheerful transition to tbe higher
life, was a fitting close for one so free
from complaint, and so full of active
. The funeral services were held at his
late residence, Wednesday April 9th,

many for the Democrats, he calculated
to vote straight Republican, &s , but
did not want it understood that he was
a party man. R. A. Horr was next
called to the stand. He said that he,
like his brother Charles, was not a party
man; but we found out before he had
proceeded far that his assertion was on
ly in fun. He made a very appropriate
speech for a Republican caucus. N.
Huckins then made some remarks that
would be better told by himself than
printed in a book. Hon. S. 8. Warner
was then called, who made one of his
finest speeches, showing how the party
now stands through the country and at
the National Capitol. No one 'hearing
his speech has the least chance to doubt
that he understands what he is talking
about, and is firm in the faith of Repub
licanism. Next but not least was our
friend Tim Herrick. He started out
moderately, but as he warmed up said he
was not sugar coated in any of his po
litical principles ; meant exactly what
he said and wanted everybody to know
It, and we think they all did from tbe
