The meeting of the Temperance lie
form club on Monday night drew out a
large number of people, and the commo
dcou hall was pretty well crowded.
According to a inouiici mt n' Co'.
Bob Lowery was the tlrt speaker. Col.
Li.wtrj's speech was char
acteristic, full ot eloquence, wit aud
humor, and the . sieakcr was
frequently applauded by the audience.
Col. Lowery sp ku for about mill an
hour and was listened to throughout
with the closest attention. His speech
was an excellent one, and was so pro
nounced by ull who heard him. T. J.
Robberts was the next speaker, and en
tertained tho audience In a brief but well
timed and st n-ibl ) argument In f,tor of
temperance. At the eonclu.-iou of Mr.
Rubbcria' remai ks, Mr. Oberly was call
ed for and responded in a speech of
twenty minutes duration. In his re-,
marks the speaker seems to have given
olIetisM to some of tlio inure ardent and
emliuslasti'j members of Ihe club Mr.
Oberly said nothing that tihould have
created any 111 feeling. He may have "re
lined'' too much lor an audience the ma
jority of which had ceas. d to be influenc
ed by argument and hud arrived at a
condition of mind demanding the rallying
cry of emotion, hut the matter ef bis
speech was not obnoxious to the true
principles ol the present tdinpcraiice
movement which teach '-malice towards
none, charity tor all." He said, among
other things, that the saloon resulted
fiotu the law ol supply and demand, and
that while, In individual cases, it created
the appetite that made the demand tor
liquors, It did not make thu demand ol
the community. For the cause of the
demand we must look beyond the saloon,
and would find it in ihe rohi?

manlike Mrs. llajes, it required wine at

it the apparent duty ot the high in sta

thus set had examples to the young ineu
ot tho land. To cider, the insidious bev
erage of the temperance home hi a Inch
appetite lor drink uses tin liq'ior lo sat-i-ly
the craving for something stronger,
the speaker fixed his attention. IU-called
it the devil's ow n drink, and asked the
temperance reformers to attack il with
some ol the malice lin y were now Ui--
plaj ing towards the caluon keeper. We
win not oreierm to give even a synopsis
ol the speech. It was exieuipe.-aneous,
not us logical as il might have been
aud was wanting in that easiness ol
statement and rhetoric which sometimes
make even uupuhttcublu truths not un
pleasant to the ears of ihosu lhey are in-
leuui-u to ln.nnic, or reouke. U was
sound in doctrine however, und Ihe sur

When Mr. Oberly had suuiWWd John
P. Hely took the stand, ami in a simrt
setch took Mr. Oberly to taak for "upol.
ogiztng lor satoon Keepers." lie was
unnecessarily pointed in hi? remarks,
and though he did not mention that gen
tleman's name, it was only too plainly to
be seen that they were meant for Mr.
Oberly. Mr. Oberly attempted lo reply
to Mr. Hely, when Col. John Wood
raised tlm point that both Mr. Ilely and
-Mr. Oberly were out ol order, nud called
upon the chair to prevent further
discussion. Judge Buker, who
in the abseive of President Dumiiinr.
presided, sustained thu point raised by
Col. Wood, und thus the matter ended.
The events ol the evening have caused
consideia'de outside talk, and we are
sorry to say soiuj Ill-feeling. Properly
understood we do not think Mr. Oberly 's
remarks would have given ofn fis 1 to any

aimoiiiiceu u di terinfuatioii to breakup

his threat conducted himsell in an ot
fensivo and boisterous manner. Mr. Har
rison went to Carnes and remonstrated
with him, wten, without provocation!,
Carnes drew a revolver and jaunng the
unii'..lo riirht into Harrison's lace, at
tempted to shoot but the weapon woulJ
nol go oil. Harrison then took a club
aud sti iking Cari.es on the head knock
ed him down. A general melee
loliowed and in it Carnes
was. stabbed ti.e times in thu
hack, one cut penetrating to the
lungs, and another euturlng one of Ills
kidneys. Who did the cutiii g is a mys
teryasyet, but the guilty party is pes
lieved to be known. Carnes was still
alive yesterday morning, but his physi
clan, Dr. Parterllcld, gave It as his opi-e.
ion llial be cannot' recover. No arre sts
have as yet beeu made.
