Prohibition State Convention.
The political cormorants
kocwQ as Prohibitionists, who
mate a bvsin-ctj of temperance,
have heard the din of the wo
man's war, and are now forag
ing tor the spoils of btttle
They have issued a call for a
convention on the 26th, at Ml.
Vernon,to nominate candidates
or State (sfEcep. We are in
favor of temperance, and glory
rn tiro woman's work, or any
ottoer honest effort at reform;
bt we have no use tor these
temperance bummers, lor the
one substantial reason that
they do the cause more harm
than good; that their only in
terest in the matter is to
squeeze enough money out of
their dupes to keep them in
bread and butter. They adopt
temperance as a business just
s salooa keepers adopt dram
celling as a business, and they
need praying for quite as much
as the saloon keepers, if not
a little more. They have been
slashing away in this State for
years, spending thousands of
dollars in salaries for Jecturers,
secretaries, presidents, editors,
etc, whose eilorts have not
been to subserve the cause of
temperance, but to put money
la their own pockets. They
have met with no success what;
ever, for the reason as we veri
ly believe that they are wolveB
in 6heep's clothing. In their
years of existence we have
never heard of one naloon
closed or its keeper converted,
or even cine person induced by
their efforts to abstain from the
use of liquor, while the wo
men, who are earnest in tern
perance, have caused during
the pasl week, counting only
those reported in the Cincin
natl Gazette, the closing of
131 places where liquor was
sold,' and it ia estimated that
40,000 persons have signed the
personal pledge. Not onl this,
the "Prohibitionists" have been
positively injurious to the
cause of temperance. Wit
ness the present Legislature ol
the State. By chicanery and
a multiplicity ot candidates
they have divided the temper
ance vote, causing the Legisla
tare to be so constituted that
the friends of temperance are
in the" minority, and if the
Adair law one of the best
practical temperance laws ever
devised is not repealed, it
will be because the efforts of
the ladies have aroused public
feeling to such a height that
members have fears of their
We believe Dio Lewis, when
he estimates the temperance
people of the State when
aroused to be three-lourths of
the men andj nineteen
tietbs' of the women, under
estimates rather than over
estimates the strength. Why
is it then that the Prohibition
ists .have tailed ds a political
party! Because 'they have , no
groand to stand on; they have
made no effort to : assist the
. jcause they profess. . Our peo
pie are eminently practical
nd they can see no good the
party Jbas done orstriven'to'do.
The laws heretofore has been
trocget , than public senti
ment. It remained a dead.let-
ter upon the statute books, yet
their cry has been fori more,
while they laving the pcwer,
failed to. use what they -already
bad. . If Ahey had used the
mean in their bands and found
it inadequate, to meet the evil,
they might have bad grounds
for a new patty if the old ones
would not give them what was
required; but they have chosen
to waste their energies in run
ning candidates for Treasurer,
Auditor, Secretary ; of State,
etc., who have no more to do
with the making or enforce
ment of liquor laws than has
the man in the moon, while
they have fooled away their
means in paying their "Jectur-J
era" for stumping the State in
behalt of. their oaudidate. In
short they have done every
thiigio leather thtir own "ucslV
and nothing to forward the
cause of temperance, afccT de
serve to bo treated as any oth
er swindlers, me uaies' or
course, will give iheiu i wide
berth, and we hope no true
Iriend of temperance in the
State will be misled by. their
professions. Le( (hem strive
tor that which is practical, and
help build up a public senti
ment which Hill enforce what
we now have rather than waste
their energy on political the

Mr. S. Koinf.r, living near
Wayuesboro, Vo-, recently or
dered au old ouk to be cut
down, remarking that the cul
lers would Bud a rock in the
body of the tree, which he had
put there filly-four . years ago
when he was a little boy re
turning from school one day
When the tree was cut, in the
heart of it was found imbedded
the identical rock which Mr.
Koiner had put in the fork of
tne little sapling more than a
half century ago.
A REMARKABLE rose busll
adorns the cottage of S. A.
Kendall of Santa Rosa, Cali
fornia. It was planted in 1858,
and is of the Lamarque variety,
the most beautiful of the white
roses. Imagine 'an immense
boquet of white roses, twenty
five feet hifeh, twenty-two leet
across, beautifully rounded,
with a blossoming surlace ot
four hundred square fast, with
lour thousand full blown roses
and twenty. thousand buds!
TiJE.only difference between
our account of Mackley at the
Cliillicottae editorial Conven
lion and Mackley's account of
ouiself at the Athens conven
tion, is that our account is true
and Mackley's is false. We are
prepared to prove both propo
sition?. The public debt was reduc
ed during the month of Jan
uary, $1,845,211. This is the
moqt encouraging indication
we have seen, ot the return of
good times. It is to be hoped
there may be no ebb to this
tide, now that it is' turned in
the right direction. .
A quarrel between two
men of iloboken about a trivial
matter resulted in an attempt
on the part of one to shoot the
other. The latter was lollow

which knocked him down and
kicked him so severely that he
is not expected to 'live.
