THE POLITICAL ISSUE.
The campaign will soon be in full
blast, auna about, the only issue for con
sideration is the one which a few dis
gruntled politicians have fanned into
flame by aligning themselves with a
still fewer number of men who are sin
cere in their professions. In nearly
every instance, where a politician is
advocating a Prohibition issue, he was
the rejected or defeated candidate at
some previous campaign. and his com
ing forward again in politics is to re
coup his lost prestige.
There are men who sincerely believe
that the country's condition would be
benefitted if upon the Statute books of
the State there could be placed a law
prohibiting the sale of intoxicating
liquors: these men are religiously sin
cere in such a belief and will go to
great lengths to accomplish such al
result. They believe it is their relig
ious duty to vote for Prohibition with
out regard for results, and they would
vote for anything labeled Prohibition.
Then there is another class, who laugh
in their sleeves at the idea of Prohibi
tion, and will join in with those who
are sincere. This class can not drop
their prejudice against the Dispensary
law, because it drove them out of a
profitable business, _rd they hava ever
since bedn doing all in their power, not
only to encourage the violation of the
law, but in many instances, have been
violators of the law itself. They will
be found in the ranks of the Prohibi
tionists voting to get a Prohibition law
upon the Statute books: are these peo
ple without method? Will any man
doubt that they see with a Prohibition
law on the Statute books it puts them
in a surer position to sell liquor with
out restraint? The advocates of Pro
hibition will contend that if the law is
adopted they will see after, and to its
enforcement, but men of observing
minds know full well that when such a:
law is enacted, then it will be a case of
what iseverybody's business is nobody 's'
business, and the law will be a farce.
Even the Dispensary law finds the
greatest of difficulties to enforce. The
officers will try and do their duty. ar
rests will be made. the testimony often:
conclusive, and juries made up of Pro
hibitionists, Dispensaryites, and liquor
men, either disagree or acquit-con
victions are rare.
The dispensary law has accomplished
much good. and the longer it is tried
the more good in the way of temper-;
ance does it accomplish. The records
of the various towns and cities where
the dispensary has had anything like a
chance, show a yearly decrease in the:
"drunks and disorderlies," and the
county records all over the State show
a decrease in crime.
We are convinced that the dispensary
is the best way to handle liquor. We
believe it is utterly impossible to stop
its consumption, and restricted as it is.
and becoming more so every year: it is
fast becoming a promoter of temper
The political Prohibitionists are sim
ply using the influence of a few good
men to further their political desig'ns
and they do not expect to event see a
prohibition law enacted. but their main
hope is for political advantage which
they either know they cannot secure as
things are now, or they have tried and
HAS CRANE GOT THE DEAD WOOD ON
Rev. Arthur Crane, who held a series
of meetings last fall in the Baptist'
Church in this place, has received a.
call to the First Baptist Church in
Charleston. and as its pastor, he has
undertaken to create a rattle among
the dry bones, by doing a detective or
spy work in the haunts of vice in that
city, and then from his pulpit to give
out sensations which will, for a while,
make his church the "grand attrac
tion.'' Last Sunday. Mr. Crane deliv-;
ered a sermon, in which he said a great,
many truths about the conditions ex
isting in Charleston. He told about
the liquor dens, houses of ill fame,
gambling resorts, and ridiculed the city
authorities for permitting these thingsj
to exist, but throughout his entire re-;
marks as published, he did not tell any
thing new, or but what has been known
to every citizen. His entire sermon is
but an imitation of the harangues that
can be heard nightly by "slum preach
ers'' in most any city up North. We
hope that Mr. Crane will be able to ac
complish good in the "Old City by the
Sea," but we think after he has played
his Parkhurst roil a few weeks the peo
ple will tire of the sensation, and will
be anxious to swap a filth-advertiser
for religion. There are certain institu
tions permitted to exist in cities, which
to the innocent may be regarded hor
rible, but they are permitted. because
in the judgment of men who make the
human race a study, they are preven
tives of things more horrible. Were it
not for these institutions, there is no
telling the amount of sorrow that would
be brought to households. the rm
and degradation that would follow theI
driving of them out. A preacher cant
very well get up and denounce what
appears to be an evil, but if his hearers
will stop and refleet, they will conme to.
the conclusion that it is better to put
up with "a necessary evil'' and let the
responsibility rest where it will, than
commit a more grievous error through~
two weeks. and whn hie first began his
preclhing the congregations were some
what impressed with hismannerof call
ing -a spade. a spade," but before he
finished his engagement, it was soon
realized that he was a disappointment.
and his influence for good would be
limited. We have heard that a certain
minister of this town said. --Crane did
more harm than I will be able to undo
in twelve months.
What Mr. Crane said about the
gambling hells and the whiskey shliols
is true. and we ag-ree with him. but if
he is in real earuest to put a stop to the
existence of these inititlt i0Lt. it ,trike5

Is there any chance to carry the
country Democratic this fall? This
question is yet to be solved, and it will
not be until after the meeting of the
Convention on the 4th day of July, that
the real canvass for votes will begin.
The platform adopted in 1896. laid
special stress on the money question.
which resulted in bringing about a di
vision of our forces. many of whom had

bag and baggage to the Republican
party. aud as a consequence it was a
house divided against itself and defeat
was the result. Had Bryan been elected
with a Congress to fit the principles
enunciated in the Chicago platform the
money question would have been set
tled satisfactory to the Democratic
party, but he was defeated, and with
his defeat the Republicans made such
gains in the Senate of the United States
that the Chicago platform money plank
is now an impossibility, even if every
Congressman to be elected this fall
favors the 16 to 1 idea. If we are cor
rect in this statement, then what would
be the use of sticking the 16 to 1 plank
in our platform at Kansas City. and
thereby keep out of our ranks many
who agree with us on everything but
the money feature' If we cannot get
16 to 1 because conditions have made it
impossible.there is no sense in hugging
a delusion,and it should be left out. We
are told that notwithstanding the pow
er of money. the Democracy has a fight
ing chance on a platform against trusts.
combinations. synrdicates. impelurialism11.
etc.. and if we turn loose our financial
idea and make a square fight on other
questions the Demnocracy can go mnto
te coming conflict in solid phalanx.
and whether successful or not it will
be a united party, and with a united
party against the other side, they will
have to keel) their forces firmly togeth
er, for if there happens to be any dis
sensions in their ranks we will discover
the weak point and assail it.

Brvan will be the Demnocratic nomi
ne is a certainty, and if the country
can be carried ior the Democr'acv at all.
Bryan is the man wvho can carry it. bei
in our humble judgment. the Rep~ubli
eans are not only well organized, but
they have so favored the trusts and the
monied institutions that they can get
all the money they wtant from them to
buy up the purchasable vote of the
North. East and West.
We read where Bryan is received
everywhere he goes with enthusiasm.
and the impression created is that the
voters are tumbling over each other to
do him honor and give him promises of
support, but it must be remember'ed
that in the North, the East. and WVest.
the voting system is different from ours.
and the voters are made up of different
people from ours. In this State we have
butthe one party~ and it speaks through
its primary: when it has spoken all of
us acquiese and support its decision
the party primary is virtually the elec
tion. In the North, East, and West,
there are two well defined political
parties, that often change with issues.
The voters are made up in many States
of a foreign element, who care nothing
for our institutions: in fact, their' only
ambition is to reap wealth and return
to their native homes. These p~eople
work in the mines and factories, the
very institutions which have recently
been given a considerable boost by the
present administration, and it matters
not how mnuch they hurrah for Bryan;
at the public gatherings, or march in
the political parades, when election d-ay
comes, the Boss in char'ge of each squad
of workmen will instruct the voters how
to vote and they will vote accordingly.
If they should assert a spirit of inde
pendence and refuse to be dictated to.
there would follow a decrease of wages
or other workmen to take their- places.
It is in this way the Republican party
has entrenehed itself and nothing~ short
of a split in their party or a political
revolution will oust them.

The Home Branch school closed Fri

sermen was preached at the Home
Branch Baptist church Sunday after
noon by Rev. J. 0. Gough. who preach
ed an able and appropriate sermon from
the text. "For without me ye can do
nothing." The school exercises were
held in the church buildingz the next
night. and a program of three hours
kept us well entertained. The house
was filled to its utmost capacity. and
the audience was unusually quiet until
a little boy was telling a girl what a
sweetheart is. His definition touched
that peculiar tendcr cord in our heart4.
antd the whole auidience begatn with out
accordt t) laugh ing. and when the cur
tain fell the reader can guess what the
boys and girls were talking about. The
exhibition was good and the teacher
andl children both deserve great credit.
The school under Mliss JIessie Curt is'
management has (lone well. The teach
er in the beginning of the session seem
ed to instill into their youthful minds
the importance of an education and
they went to work, realizing the im
portance of making proper use of their
golden opportunities. Besides the les
sons in their text hooks. they were
taught the importance of Christian ed
ucation. This is a part of children's
training that is of unspeakable import
ance and yet usually but little consider
ed, for children have no character of
their own tixed and immovable, and
being. like sheep. gr'egarious. they
readily yield to the impulse of any
leaderand follow a multitude to do evil.
The Ho~me Branch school has done a
good years work and we can say to her
vho taught it. 'well done."'

A MOST WONDERFUL CURE.
A Grand Old Lady Gives Her Experience.
Mrs. Thankful Orilla Hurd lives in the beautiful village of Brighton,
Livingston Co., Mich. This venerable and highly respected lady was born In
the year 1812, the year of the great war, In Hebron, Washington Co., New
York. She came to Michigan in 1S40, the year of "Tippecanoe and Tyler
too." All her faculties are excellently preserved, and possessing a very re
tentive memory, her mind is full of interesting reminiscences of her early
life, of the early days of the State of Michigan and the Interesting and re
markable people she has met, and the stirring events of which she was a wit
ness. But nothing in her varied and manifold recollections are more mar
velous and worthy of attention than are her experiences In the use of
JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA. Mrs. Hurd Inherited a tendency and pre
disposition to scrofula, that terribly destructive blood taint which has cursed
and Is cursing the lives or thousands and marking thousands more as vie
tims of the death angel. Transmitted from generation to generation, It Is
found in neary every family in one form or another. It may make its ap
pearance in dreadful running sores, in unsightly swellings In the neck or
goitre, or in eruptions of varied forms. Attacking the mucous membrane, It
may be known as catarrh in the head, or developing In the lungs It may be,
and often is, the prime cause or consumption.
Speaking of her case, Mrs. Hurd says: "I was troubled for many years
with a bad skin disease. My arms and limbs would break out In a mass of
sores, discharging yellow matter. My neck began to swell and became very
unsightly in appearance. My body was covered with scrofulous eruptions.
My eyes were also greatly inflamed and weakened, and they pained me very
much. My blood w -.sa a very bad condition and my head ached severely
at frequent intervals, and I had no appetite. I had sores also In my ears. I
was in a miserable condition, I had tried every remedy that had been recom
mended, and doctor after doctor had failed. One of the best physicians in
the state told me I must die of scrofulous consumption, as Internal abcesses
were beginning to form. I at length was told of Dr. Jolinston, of Detroit, and
his famous Sarsaparilla. I tried a bottle, more as an experiment than any
thing else. as I had no faith in it, and greatly to my agreeable surprise, I
began to grow better. You can be sure I kept on taking it. I took a great
many bottles. But I steadily improved until I became entirely well. All the
sores healed up, all the bad symptoms disappeared. I gained perfect health.
and I have never been troubled with scrofula sInce. Of course an old lady
of 53 years is not a young woman, but I have had remarkably good health
sin ce then, and I firmly believe that JOHNSTON'S SARSA.PARILLA Is the
greatest blood purifier and the best medicine in the wide world, both for
scrofula and as a spring medicine." This remarkably interesting old lady did
not lok to be more than sixty, and she repeated several times, "I believe my
life was saved by JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA."
