Had to Pull it Down!
Hany of oar reader will remem
Iter seeing tbe following at the top
of the editorial page of the elcCea
nelaville Herald :
"OUR PLATFORM.
Rxiolvjd, Tbtt while we believe
it to be premature to urge temper
noe questions open the great State
and national parties, we strongly
urge our po.iucal conventions to
nominate for the suffrages of the
people only staunch temperance
men.
Emolvkd, That we will support
do candidate for office at the ap
proaching fall election who habitu
ally uses intoxicating liquors as a
beverage.'
Ltt week the a&eve platform of
the Herald bad to be pulled down to
make way for the Republican State
ticket. The platform and the tick
t woald oot work well together.
While we are Dot informed relative
to the habits of all the candidates
on their ticket, we hnve some in
lormatiou that satinot bo gainsaid
relative to soino of them.
James William, the candidate
for Auditor f State on the Repub
lican ticket, has been a notorious
drinking man for years, and at this
time "habitaally uses intoxicating
liquors as a beverage," and ton
Herald mo well know it. Why, ir
the Herald is honest in its temper
ance pretensions, does it not refuse
to support Williams for Auditor of
State 7 If the Herald was honest
in publishing the above platform,
why does it not stick to" its plat
form, and refuse to support Wil
liams 7 All who doubt that Wil
liams is a drinking man, we refer
to Hon. W. P. Bprague and to Hon.
Richard Stanton. They will both
attempt to smooth over the matter
a little by saying : "Well, Williams
will take a drink once in awhile,
but I believe I never saw him
drank. He'll drink on Slate Con.
ventioo days, Fourth of Julys. &c.
He has no priuciple against taking
an occasional glass." Both these
Republicans know in their hearts
that Williams is a regular drinker,
but still they do not feel like say
ing so of roan that they expect to
support for office. Very naturally
they will smooth the matter over
in the way above stated, or some
similar way, but still the honest en
quirer after the truth will glean
enough from them to establish the
tact that Williams, in their opin
io, "habitually uses intoxicating
liquors as a beverage." Still the
Htralir after avowing what it
claimed to be its principles in the
above platform, tears down the
platform, and1 hoists the name of
Williams for Auditor of State.
Stephen R, Hwmer, of Musking
um oouny, 03 the Republican State
tieket for Member ot the Board of
Public Works, is another who has
habitually used intoxicating liquors
as a beverage for twenty years, if
not all his life. Mr. Hosmer is we'.l
known to many of our citisens, and
we do not suppose there is a man
in Morgan county that would dis
pute our charge against him. It is
true that he does not drink as ex
cessively as he did a few years ago,
and it is equally true that be is
well qualified to fill tbo position for
which he u a candidate : butstnl
he drinks and has done so for years
and years. The Herald men know
ibis, and yet they suppert him in
the face f their avowed determma
tion not to support any man for of
fice that ''uses iutoxiomin-3 liquors
as a beverage.
There are some others on the
- Rcpubtreaa State ticket that we are
told are drinking men, bat, so far,
we have no positive information re
lative to them-, ami, of coarse, will
not mention thorn- until we are pos
itively informed. We ask the peo
pie, however, to reflect a- iitt'.vvrrd
ask themselves if they istin concede
honesty to the 27rji in ptlibiiir.
tbo above platform. Do not the
fact prove that they were only
playing '-pretend to be temperance

perance men of Morgan were afrai J
to avow what they privabelv elaim

Will Mr. otauum uu the people
why the Republican State fjonven
tion did not nominate a strictly
temperance ticket? Will he tell
the paople why it did not put a
temperance plank in its platform ?
If the Republican party is the av

did the State Convention of the
party entirely ignore the question ?

The Court House Ring Conven

D. C. Pinkerton called It to ord

was chosen Chairman and Joseph
S. Yanlaw and E, M. Kennedy were

pointing or the ordinary Uoromit-
tees and the announcing of candid-
ate, the Convention adjourned un
til after dincer.
After dinner, the Committee on

ard Stanton was nominated on first
Fallot, receiving 42 votes to 18 for

For Coroner, Alexander Higgins,

ceiving 44 votes to 17 for Zedekiah

After the nominating, the Com
mittees oa Central Committee and
Resolutions reported, the latter as
follows :
Buolved, by the Republicans of
Morgan county, in Convention as
sembled at MoConnnlsville, this
24th day of June, 1871 :
1st That we endorse the Admin
istration of General Grant as being
just, wise, and equitable.
2nd, That we adopt the flatlorm
of the Republican State Conven
tion, in Columbua assembled, June
21st, 1S71.
3rd That we give the nominees
of this Convention, and ot the State
Convention, our free and hearty
support, and that we will n-te all
houorable and lair meana to secure
their election.
The reports of the above named
Committees were adopted. We oro.
muted to take down the names of
those placed upon the Central
and Advisory Committees.
Meantime Mr. Stanton, the nom
inee for Representative, had been
sent for, and he appearing at this
time in the proceedings, proceeded
to answer the call for a speech.
He stated be was not a speech-maker,
but tbat he made some pre
tensions to being a "worker' in the
nteresis of the Republican parly.
He thought the mission of the Re
publican party had not yet ended,
but that there were muitenogs to
be heard in the South yet. that
made it necessary for it to live.
prosper, and rule. He thought the
Republican party the embodiment
of the moral sentiment ot the coun
try, and the only avenue through
which a moral reiorm, sucn as me
one proposed by the Prohibition
ists, could be enected. lie stated it
was truebat the Republican State
ticket was not a temperance ticket,
and tbat he did not claim the Re
publican party to be a temperance
par'., but yet he thought the State
ticket tv be the best tbat could have
been nominated under the circum
stances, lie said he bad looked at
toe temperance question in every
conceivable light, and that his hon
est conviction wa& that he csald do
it more service in the Republican
party than-out of it. He said that
this convictiou might be a dishon
est one, but yet he though it an
honest one. He thanked the Con
vention with a full heart for the
confidence reposed ic him by mak
ing bim the nominee for Represen
tative. T. . Williams, cf Marion, was
next called upon for a speech, and
he responded with considerable
force, bat we have not room togive
wnt be said.
After resorvir.g to have the pro
ceed inga of the Convection publish
ed in the McUonnelsville HtrttJ
and the Ohio Hinlo Journal, the Con
vention adjourned.
It will he noticed that the muni
neesoflbe Convention for all the
profitable offices are the old incum
bents. Stanton, the candidate for Ropre
sentative, was the roemrmr from
this county during the last sesiion.
and was for two terms very recent
ly treasurer ot Morgan vount,and
has been recognized as a member
of the Co art Mouse Ring for ten
years past.
itoberls, the enrrdrdate for Clerk
i the presetit Clerk is a member
of the Wood A Sniacue coalition
for the purpose ot filling the offices
ot Morgan county. The two bran
cb.es of this coalition have frequent
ly quarreled as to which of tbem
should have the fattest offi'jes, but
they are always a unit on una thing,
and that is that they shall bmI go
out of the family when there is a
member thereof to- partake of the
benefUs rosuiling. Jia a conse
quence, this eoaliiion is now Siting
five of our offices, and some one or
more of them have been in office
here for the past fifteen years or
more. This coalition is a very
powerful arns ot the Co art House
Ring, and it orrly allows the other
members thereof to take what it
has not the aambers to fill.
Havener, the candidate for Sher
iff, became but recently a member
of the Ring. Two years ago, as a
People's candidate and by aid of
the democratic party, be was able to
beat tba regular Ring nominee, and
he threatening to do the same
thing agaiu this year, the Ring
concluded to kick out J. Q. White,
of Windsor, who shewed two years
lao. mat no had not sumcient
strength to entitle bim to member
ship, and take Havener in, conse
quently the nomination of Haven
er. McGrew, the candidate fof AndU
tor, 1a on of the tfldest and rfUrew
dest meiubers of the Ring, and has
been ab.'e to keep his position as
Auditor for the past eleven yean,
and we suppose will make an effort
to keep it for the next eleven.
Three years ago he was opposed in
Convention by Finley J. Ryan, of
Bristol, and came near being defea
ted. Ryan had been a soldier, and
was a worthy and competent man,
and bis friends felt very sore at bis
defeat. The Court House Ring fear
ing tbat Ryan would bolt, and
thereby defeat McGrew at the polls,
had McGrew go to Ryan and prom
ise that if he (Ryan) would remain
loyal" to the Court House Ring,
that he (McGrew) would not op
pose him (Ryaoj in the Conven
tion this year. Ryan done so, and
be result is tbat McGrew did not
keep bis word. If McGrew denies
this promise to Ryan, we refer the
people to Ryan, who asserts tbat
McGrew did so promise him lime
and again.
The rest of the ticket is compos
ed 01 candidates for what may be
called the minor offices. Pond, the
candidate for Surveyor, is the old
incumbent ; David Smith, the can
didate for Commissioner, is a very
reputable gentleman from Marion
township ; James C. Lougbridge,
candidate for Infirmary Director,
is one of the best citisens of Mor
gan township ; and Alexander Hig
gins, candidate for Conocer, is of
Meigsville township, and has been
a standing candidate for the Repub
lican nomination for Sheriff oi this
county for years. He is doubles
much elated with his success in
getting the nomination of Coroner.
It is unnecessary for us to slate
that the nominations of last Satur
day have given general and wide
spread dissatisfaction. It was ap
parent on the facti of the proceed
ings that the Convention was ruled
by the Court House King, and a man
that had not influence with the
Court House incumbents could not
muster a respectable vote for any
thing. As the saying is, "the whole
matter was cut and dried bv a
few."
Temperance Movement in
Pittsburgh.
In Pittsburgh the licenMng of
Liquer Vendors is in the hands of
the County Commissioners, and for
years back these Commisoiont-rs,
through bribery and fraud, have
exceeded their authority. Recent
ly the whole matter has undergone
ad investigation; brought about by
the temperance' Agitation that is
sweeping over the whole country,
and the result is that two of the
Commissioners of Pittsburgh have
been convieted cf accepting bribes,
and illegally granting licenses to
Liqasr Vendors, and they have
been sent to the Penitentiary there- j
for and fined $2,009each. At a re- i
cent meeug ot the Clergy of Pitts
burgh, AUegbany Uity, and the
surrounding suburbs, the following
whereas and resolutions wore enau-
imoosly passed:
Wbsreas, Bribery and public pecttTa
tion hare received a moat salutary
check in the judicial sentence of two
f our County ConrmiMioners, each to
a year's hard labor ia the bounty
Work House, and the payment of a
ddc of $2,000; therefore,
Resolved, First, That we congratu
late the people on the continued reign
of justice in our Courts of law.
Keolved, i-econd, that we express
the hope that this sentence may not
be interfered with by Gubernatorial
pardon.
Jtesoired, inirct 1 bat we tender our
thanka to the noble men whose actire
and self-sacrificing labors have put
this amount of arrest upon the license
business as heretofore carried on in
this county.
Resolved, fourth, that we will here-
aftsr support to man for the office of
County 4 ommisaioner who is of doubt
ful integrity or otdoubtful temperance
habits and views. "
The fourth resolation is rather
liroUeJ 11. its reach. We should
think the Clergvof Pittsburgh, and
of a:! o'hr vicinities, would feel
the fliitth (if bhame aianti' their
cheiks by voting for men of "doubt
ful temperance habits and views' for
any office. An unprincipled politi
cian might do so and never foci a
twitch of conscience. The resolu
tions have the true ring lo tbem,
however, as far as they go.

An Appeal in Candid Men.
The people of Ohio have recently
had presented to then the party
SlatformsOR tbe Detnoeratie and
lepubliean parties. Tbe Demo
cratic party, which for six years re
fused te accept the situation, has at
last shifted its position, and become
ft party recognising the progress
made since thfl commencement ot
the eivil war. These two psrties.
in the present contest, stand virtu
ally upon the same platform nei
ther presenting a living issue.
Roth platforms, thougu containing
nothing new, are filled With bom
bast, one appealing to the ptople
for support en the gn-d it has done,
the other recalling the principles of
former day.
We feel and williuajy admit the
aervicaa the one has rendered, and
the principles the other once advo
cated. We do not live for tbe past ;
wo live for the present and the fu
ture. If a party has no record save
tbe past, it is high time it should
give Way te one that has not only
a living but a vital issue. If the
Republican party has nothing to
offer save its record and laudation
or Grant, let it go to the Wall. If
the Democratic party has tothmg
to offer save the n.eaiory ot Gen.
Jackson, let it bs burned ; for its
corpse has been exposed long en.
ough. We are all thankful for past
favors, but political parlies, if they
wish te exist, roust exert them-;
selves in favor of th good of '.he
people. The candid man will readi
ly separate words ffOrti actions.
The candid man has no confidence
in the Republican platform, when
it says, "we repeat our condemna
tion of the policy of granting sub
sidies of public lands to corpora
tions and monopolies," since every
intelligent man knows that Con
gress has not only been notorious
for granting public lands to monup'
olies, but also the public money.
Nor has he any faith in lh Demo
cratic party, when it proclaims that
"we are in favor ot strict economy,"'
so long as we have a knowledge of
the governing ot the city of
New York. Economy is a word
whose moaning is unknown to both
parties of thie Slate, the recent ses
sion of our Legislature will amply
t'-stify That lone sea-ion, tboueh
it did little or nothing for the pub

parlies, no one is able to discover
anything in them sate bombast to
blind the people, in the race for of
fice. The contest between theee
two parties is the contest for of
fice. There is, iiewever, in the field,
one party, and only one, that pre
sents a vital issue ; that prty is the
Prohibition party. It acknowledg
es ita fealty ic the great principles
underlying our rederal Constitu
tion in nnniistskablo language.
Not only does it thus corr.mend it
self to the patriot, but it also com
mends itself to every one thut is
interested in tbe welfare of his fel
low man, by presenting, or rather
seiXing an tss&e that every moral
man is interested in. iot only in

that prey upon the earnings of the
people, and drive suffering and de

that greatly hinders the welfare ol
every community, the two leading
paities have nothing to say. But
the Prohibition frty proposes to
keep away temptation from those
boys that are suro to exeif power

bad. Instead of allowing their in
fluence to be for the bad. it propos
es to cause them to exert their in
flnenco for the good.
We sppeai to every m.m fe take
into consideration the welfare ol
his race. It is not for the good of
the people to decide whether Re
poblicat or Democrat shall succeed
in the race for oifice i but it is for
the good of the people to plaoe such
men in office as have the good of
the people at heart. The candid
man is certaicly conscious that n
