The Rock Port Democrat is in throes
of tribulation on account of a contro
versy between its inside ami its outside.
It is a Greenback paper, the inside pa
ges of which arer printed in Chicago.
The Chicago editor Urongly opposes
any coalitions between the Greenback
ers and either of the old parties. But
the Grccnbackers of Atchison counU
nave fused with the Republicans and
the Rock Port editor endorses them
Consequently, the inside of the paper
every week preaches one doctrine while
the outside preaches another. It must
be rather embarrassing for the -Rock
Port editor who has to cxp'aiu thiugi
personally. to his readers, while thi
Chicago editor laughs at his prediea-

HoU County Press has contained inti
mations that thejSENTiNEL is not heart

has attacked him in the past, etc. There
rs not a shadow of truth tu any of these
assertions. Thcetlitor of tho Senti
KEL sever in his life wrote an uncom
plimentary 'line in regard to 3Ir. lun

been, and is yet, his staunch friend.
The Sentinel was the firt paper in
the District to urge" his nomination and
most earnestly desires his electioii.
But as he has no opponent we linvt
seen no" necessity for tillingour columns
with articles in his favor. It is proper
to add that Mr. Dungan fully under
stands the aniamiof the little imbecile
whose nauie appears , as editor of the

LAST TUESDAYS ELKCTIOKS.
For nearly a month past the utten
tion of the whole country has been di
.....o,i f, nhin mid Indiana, in which
State flections were held onTu:sda.
It was felt that the result of those elect
ions would go far toward dciermiuing
the presidential clee ion, and lwth Re
publicans and Ucmocntts have put
forth th:lr strongest tfforts to win.
The situation was regtuded as follows:
If the Ilcpublicons carry both States it
virtually sett'es the election of Garfield;
if the Republicans lose Indiana and
carrv Ohio by a respectable majority it
makes the presidential contest close
and doubtful; while if the Republicans
loc both Indiana and Ohio they may as
well give tip the ghost aud concede the
election of Hancock.
At the hour wc close the columns of
the Sentinel wc have only Wednes
day .morning's returns. Tlcsc are al
together favorable to the Republicans,
as"they indicate the certain election of
the Republican candidate for Governor
of Indiana and the probable election of
the remainder of the Republican State
ticket; while Ohio has gone largely
Republican, securing a gain of three,
and probably four, Republican con
gressmen. The first returns from every State
election this fall have proved dece
ive, and wc ar?, therefore, afraid to
shout until we get further returns.
But present indications arc that we
have gained a g'onous victory, which
p aces beyond question the e'ection of
Garfield next month. We advise. Re
publicans, to take off their hats and
throw back their heads and draw a
long breath and be ready ii sp'it the
couds with their huzzas if the nest re
turns confirm those a'ready received.

General Butler, in his speech in
Cincinnati in 18C6, said: "These peo
ple and these States (Southern) had no
right in the Union. I beg pardon, they
had one right which they could not for
feit, one right which they did not for
feit, one rijiht guaranteed them by the
Constitution ami public law, a right
which was inalienable and indefeasible
-aud that was a right to be hanged for
their crimes: Wc won't ask you, Mr.
President, to hang four millions ef dis
loyal whites, but wc do ask you to be
gin and hang one, and wc will let j ou
know when we want you to stop."
They then had "no right" except "to
bo hanged" in his late speech ho de
mands the whole power of tho govern
ment turned over to them." "Butler is
the great reformer. ""

The Sabbath School Convention.
The Holt Countr Sabbath School
Convention held its .scmi-anual wetting
in the Methodist church in Oregon on
Tuesday and Wednesday of last week
A few met at 1 1 o'clock v a. it. of Tues
da and .suctitthp morning hour in jo
cial prayer, raise aud conference.
The afternoon session was better at
tended and a good derec of interest
was shown by those present and the
subjeet"Hov to promote Sunday School
School Conventions?" tvas considered at
si.ms length. Some one thought the
attractions wero cither not of sufficient
power or of -the right kind. A sham
battle 01 a horse race or something in
that line was suggested as powerful;
having drawn ten thousand profc sed
Christians to the St. Joe Fair. We
! commend it to the consideration of the
Executive C mmittec. Sojne thought
the trouble lay in the ijuiility of the
metal, as the best magnet .docs not
draw some substances. As a result of
these views a committee was appointed
on Wivjs uml Means of furthering Sun
day School Conventions.
The evemnz session failed and for
reasons wholly unjustifiable, and the
bad effect was .clearly visible on the
convention ou Wednesday morning in
the small attendance and the discour
aged spirit of thv few that stooil firmly
at the helm. IJut they sang some in
teresting hymns and saves themselves
up to earnest pnycr for the help of
(iod, feeling that (Jod ran work by few
as well as by many. By the close of
this sweet communion, a good number
came in and things work, d nieel) dur

4, Should draw out interest and pro

The third topic : The Sabbath School

2,-Show each ieho'ar that you have
him or her in your heart. 3, Tisit them

4, Aim at their salvation. 5. -Cultivate

not depend too much on lesson leaves.

out lesson leaves, to class.
The topic the Biblo in Song was ta
ken up. 1st point, BiMe U fuf of

A resolution was passed iustrAing

There are betw
church members i
this ennntv association is
embrace every denomination of Chris
tians in the cotmt : and Jbt only about
j twenty do'egates were present at this
convention. Why is this? It must
ariso from one or more 01 me joiion
in" reasons: 1st, Indifference to the
caufv. Can a Christian be indifferent
to such an important work as this?
2d, Sectarian opposition to Union
Sabbath Schotd work. If this is the
reason, we answer (1) that this county
work does not interfere with tho de
nominational work; and 02) it greatly
promotes Union work, whtre denom
inational work cannot m.H the wants.
Can there bo in our county men, or a
denomination of God's i cople, so sel.
Ilsh and narrow minded, that thoy
would prefer a soul should perish, rath
er than be saved by some agency other
than theirown church? If so, let them
show their colors, come outand say so 5
and the Christ-like Union workers will
just count them out. But if, as wo hope,
this is ii'.t so, then let every church
have full delegations in our noxt county
convention. We must have a square
