THE CIRCUIT JUDGESHIP.
Thi. Savannah Saturday Democrat,
roping to our recent comments oaits
criticisms of Judge ICcllcy, says:
Mr. Davenjiort of. the Sentinel, in Holt ceun
ty.Isa warm friend and personal admirer of
Judge Kellcy. As Is shown by the above e
tract, the Supreme Court it not entitled to re
spect or consideration wJicn it conflicts with
the" Siitlncrs friend and Judleial iiargaon.
Judge Kellcy's friends sliare the opinions oClhe
Bentlnel hi a large nicasareind think it Is not
wise to Impeach his competency by comparison
UU the learning of the higher Court.
"What will be the astonishment of the
Saturday Democrat when it learns that
the editor of the Sentinkl, so far from
being "a warm friend and personal
admirer'" of Judge Kelley, is not even
acquainted with, him and never spoke a
word to liTm in his life!
It is a common habit with many per
sons, when they cauKot controvert the
statement of an opponent, to ascribe
. his opinions to other than the real
cause. The Sentinel said the Su
premo Court of Missouri is an objot-t of
derision to many of the best informed
members of the bar throughout the
State. That was, aud is, true. ' The
.Saturday Democrat replies by saying
the Sentinel makes these statements
because its editor is "a warm friend and
personal admirer" of Judge Kelley.
That was not, and is not, true.
The Satuiday Democrat gave a very
insufficient reason for its antagonism to
Judge Kelleyandthe Sentinel prompt
ly exprosed its weakness- That was
all there was in the matter.
The Sentinel was not moved to its
icily either by friendship to Judge
Kelley or enraity to the Supremo Court,
but by a desire for fair play. And it is
certainly not fair to condemn any cir
cuit judge because his decisions are re
versed by the incompetents who have
been placed on the Supreme bench, not
for their learning in the law but for
their strict adherence to the dogmas of
'OW FOR IIVLIXOIS.
All eyes aro now turned on Illinois.
The 42 votes of that State in the Nation
al convention will decide who is to lie
the Republican candidate for Presideut.
"Without those votes Grant cannot be
nominated. His friends rcalizo this and
are making Herculean efforts in his be
half. Last week an immense Grant
nas meeting was held in Chicago,
which wai addressed by Robert Lin
coln (son of the cx-Tres5dcnt,) Stephen
A. Donglav (son of the ex-Senator,)
John A. Logan and others, and meet
ings are being held, night and day, in
every township throughout th State.
The' Blaine men are also hard at work.
V. hat the resiit will be it is impossible
tOiforctell, but it is our opinion the
tate will send a divided delegation

tmr hope and our belief that Washburn
will yet be tha nominee.

Tuesday morning was spent in pray
er and akristian conference; while the
afternoon was given to discussion of
the 4th topic on the program, "Sun
day school officers," and an honr spent
in general questions and auswers elic
itingdively discussion and practical in-f-inuation.
The night session witnessed a larger
audience wico listened with interest to
the discussion of the general exercises
of the Sunday Schools, such as opening
and closing, Singing, Reviews and
Blackboard, led by Brothers Bird, Hill
Wednesday's work was still an ad
vance on the previous day. The mor
ning gave us the heavy institute work,
perhaps the most profitable of all:
.Lesson Preparation, by Rev. Showal
ter. The Books of Mattherr and Gen
esis, by Rev's. Maupin and Miller, re
spectively, furnished the solid meat of
the session and were highly instructive.
The afternoon session devoted to
"Teacher's work" and "Miscellaneous
business," election of officers, etc.,
passed off pleasantly, followed at night
by the closing session that was felt to
have been if possible the best of all.
The attendance throughout was good;
at least forty were presnt from differ
ent parts of the county, representing
six of. the ten townships; besides the
people of Forest, who were fully repre
sented at all the meetings, day and
night. Mr. J. Garside and daughters,
from Atchison, guests of Mr. V. Hovey,
added greatly to the interest of the
first day's session
Prepared speakers and lively discus
sion made this perhaps the most valu
able convention to Sunday School work
ers ever held in Holt county, while the
hearty singing, earnest prayers and
prominence given the Bible in all the
meetings, gave a spiritual tone felt by

A Yountr Republican's Screed.
Biqeloav, Mo , April 19th.
Editor Sentinel: Having just i
emc.-ged into the political arena, I feel
like giving vent to my feelings upon the
greatest political question of the day
Monarchy or No Monarchy. I have
watched with groat caro the political
principles of both parties; choosing the
Republican party as the most faultless,
and the one to attach myself to. Dur
ing Gen. Grant's jmst career I thought
no American citizen could rea :onably
complain of his conduct until the pres
ent time and crisis.
Whither shall we advance four years
down the road to Monarchy or not?
Why is the German element of our
country rising in one oice and denoun
cing the idea of infringing upon the
time honored custom of our Presidents?
Because foreigners are more appreciative
of American liberty than we are; be
cause they have experience to their full
satisfaction Monarchy, Slavery and
Serfdom, in their worst forms; and well
understand how they came by it.
I think Gen. Grant should not be
nominated by the Republican part-;
he has received twice from the hands of
the American people the highest offieo
within their gift. Ho has had honor,
wealth and fame ; what more can a man
reasonably ask for from an indulgiug
populace? There ard plenty of men in
this country who have superior ability
to Gen. Grant, men who commenced
life upon the same level as he, and who
have worked themselves up, with hon
or, xcarly to the pinaclo of fame.
What more magnificent and splendid
example could be set beforo the nations
of the earth than a man no matter how
humbly born, can, by perseverance
and integrity, risa to the highest office
iu our country? Life is too short to
bestow this distinguished honor upon
any person for a longer period than
eight years, and it is certainly unprin
cipled and profligate for an individual
to ask far more. I hope every young
man in this country will "switch" if
this manly principle is deviated from.
What more grand and noble thought
could a young man have than to look
back to the time he cast his first ballot;
and reflect that it was to assist a man
into tho highest office in our country,
who commenced Iifs a bootblack or a
farmer Garfield or Blaine.
G. Waltek Smith.
Note by toe Editok. The advice
our young friend gives to young Re
publicans, to "switch" in the event
of General Grant's nomination, is indis
creet, we think. We do not favor
Grant's nomination, but we believe in
abiding by the will of the majority,
fairly expressed; and if the Chicago
convention places Grant at the head of
our ticket Ave think it the duty of every
Republican to work with all his might
for his election not because he is Gen
eral Giant, but because he is the nomin
ee and representative of the Republican
party, which is the only party that can
bring peace and prosperity to the coun
try. We are confident a little reflection
will 1 onvince our young friend that this
is tho right view to take, and that if
Grant is nominated as now seems not
improbable he will be found earnestly
battling for his election

THIS AVEEK AT
Editor Sentinel : Twenty-five
years ago bee keeping was a sadly neg
lected pursuit. Here and there a far
mer kept a few hives, to furnish his own
table with honey, but no one thought
of making it a business. But since the
introduction of improved hives, Italian
bees, honey extractors, comb founda
tion and other useful improvements, bee
keeping(.h;is assumed a new aspect; has
in fact become a separate industry.
Movable frame hives not how pattencd
give the apiarist full control of the in
terior of the hive and enable him to
turn the bee's instinct to his advantage.
But let me say here that it is not prob
able that there will ever be a hive that
will be moth proof or perfect in itself
aud give good results without at least
some attention front the-owner, in spite
of the numerous patent concerns claim.
ing to be non-swarming and moth
proof that have been heretofore peddled
throughout the country, often by icven
tors who have-no practical knowledge
of bee keeping. Some farmers within
the past few years have rushed head
long into the business of bee culture,
expecting to rea ize a fortune in a short
time. Naturally many have been dis
appointed; for bee" keeping, lik other
avocations of life, needs thorough study
and careful preparation for the work
The theory mast first be learned and
then put in practice; and to make the
business- more successful we would' rec
ommend the Italian bee, they being
more prolific, more handy and from a
climate somewhat like ours. We think
them far superior to the little Black
bee; aud by all -means get a movable
comb bee hive. You can then artificial
swarm without trouble and liandlc your
bees more readily. Your hives should
be kept in good order; not too close to
gether say six feet each way; all filth
and nuisances moved from about the
Apiaary. See that thev aro strong in
in numbers, rich in stores and water
close by, in order to stimulate to early
breeding. Yon should have cnmigh of
apiary knowledge to know the piecn
is not a king, but the mother of the
whole colony; that too many drones is
a nuisance, being what we might term
tramps that live off the industry of
others; know when and how to artific
ial swarm your bees and when to let
them alone aud not get along too fast;
and in rearing queens know when and
how to start your nucleus and what age
and condition the eggs must be in to
put in a nucleus, aud amount of eggs
and brood comb; also the kind, in or-
djr to rear a good healthy queen. It
would not be amiss to know when your
new queen will go out upon her bndal
tiur that you may be certain you have
a fertile queen, for without a tested
queen j o ir colony must perish.
All the above are very essential to
the ncwloinners; and last but not least
with one of my movable comb bee
hives and a chang of stock from the
black bee to the Italian and even-thing
clean and tasty, and willing hands to
take hold, we will guarantee success.
These will have a good tendency to make
honey an important item of wealth to be
added to Holt county's prosperity. All
that is lacking is an interest awakened
in the matter and bees to gather the
honey. Nature makes the honey and
all wo want is bees to gather it. Pees
gather their own food without recom
pense, and we hope the day is not far
distant when we shall see added to Mis
souri products honey in the markets
throughout the length and breadth of
our prosperous States. Then we may
justly claim we have a land of Canaan,
flowing with milk and honey.
