Platform of the National Prohibition
Adopted at the Chicago Convention, Sepf'r.
Whereas, Protection and allegiance are
reciprocal duties, and every citizen
who yields obedience to the just com
mands of his government is entitled
to the full, complete and perfect pro
tection of that government in the en
joyment of personal security, person
al liberty, and private property, and '
Wbkreas, The traffic in intoxicating
drinks greatly impairs the personal
security and personal liberty of large
masses of citizens, and renders pri
vate property insecure, and
Vhercas, The existing parties are
hopelessly unwilling to adopt an ad
equate policy on this question, there
fore we, in national convention as
sembled, as citizens of this free re
public, sharing in the duties and re
sponsibilities of its government, in
the discharge of a solemn di'ty we
owe to our country and our race,
unite in the following declaratioa of
1. That while we acknowledge the
pure patriotism aud profound states
manship of .those patriots who laid
broad and deep the foundat'ons of this
government, securing at once the
rights of the States severally and their
inseparable union by the Federal Con
stitution, we would not merely garnish
the sepulchers of our republican fath
ers, but we do hereby renew our sol
emn pledge of fealty to the imperish
able principles of civil and religious
liberty embodied in the Declaration of
American Independence and our Fed eral
2. 'Hint the traffic in intoxicating
beverages is a dishonor to "hristian
civilization, inimical to the best inter
ests of society, a political wrong of un
equaled normity. subversive of the
ordinary objects of government, not
capable of being regulated or restrain
ed by any system of license whatever,
but imperatively demanding for its
suppression effective legal prohibition
both by State and Rational Legisla
3. That in view of this, and inasmuch
as the existing political parties either
oppese or ignore this great and para
mount question, and absolutely refuse
to do anything toward the suppression
of the rum traffic, which is robbing the
ration of its brightest intellects, des
troying its material prosperity, rind ra
pidly undermining its very founda
tions, we are driven by an imperative
sense of duty to sever our connection
with these political parties, and to or
ganize ourselves into a National Prohi
bition Party, having for its primary
object the entire suppression of the
traffic in intoxicating drinks.
4. That while we adopt the name of
the Nation t Prohibition i'arty, as ex
pressive of our primary object, and
while we denounce all repudiation of
the public dbt, and pledge fidelity to
the principles of the Declaration of In
dependence and the Federal Constitu
tion, we deem it inexpedient to give
prominence to other political issues.
5. That a Central Executive Commit
tee of one from each State and Terri
tory and the District of Columbia, be
Appointed by the Chair, whose duty it
shall be to take such action as in their
judgment will best promote the in
terests of the party.
Who Will Be this Republican
Candidate fob State Senator ?
This question is the all-absorbing
topic amostr the Republican wire
pullers hereabout II is conceded
that Morgan Cujinly is entitled to
the nomination, and we see that
there are already two candidates
in the field from this County Dr.
Tbillip Kennedy, of Deavertown,
tind Eliaa Bundy, of Marion Town
It is a verv easy matter tc see
which of these two men will receive
the majority of tho Morgan County
vote in the Convention. Kennedy
is tbo Court House Ring candidate,
and the Ring is moviug evervthing
to secure his nomination. Bundy
is a good man, but he 6lands very
little chance of receiving more than
a complimentary vote from this
County. The Ring governs every
thing here, and Bandy will find he
will have to pay it tuoro attention
in order to succeed in getting
nomination in this District.
There is one thing, however, that
is operating against Kennedy. He
and Hon. W. P. Sprague were op
posing candidates from this County
before the last Republican Senato
rial Convention in this District;
and it as agreed, so. the story
goes, that the oae that 6howed the
most strength in the Morgan Coiin
ty caucus, should have the fu'l vote
ot the County in the Convention
The caucus vote was taken and
Sprague got fourteen votes to eleven
far Kennedy. Notwithstanding
this decision ef the caucus, and the
agreement made befbrehand", Ken
nedy would not allow Sprague to
bare the full vote of the County,
and consequently R. M. Suinson. of
Marietta, was nominated. This
sticks in the minds of many Repub
licans, and is operating against
Kennedy to a great extent; but still
as the Kmff has taken him up and
is exertinsr its full rower in his fa
vor, we predict that he will be the
sominee if Washington County
does not take the matter in her
own hands, as she baa the powsr to
a!0) bin! re-nominate Stimson.
A hit at Onf of OCR Cleegt -
mix. The Democrat, the first issue
of which appeared last week, con-
tained the following scurrilous par-1
.graph, striking at ftcv. C. Y.
CourtriTjht, of this place :
"Versatility of Pcrspits, The A-

and are disposed to turn their talents
in various directions. We know a

regular business is to keep a Chester

and diligent laborer in tho cause oi

well as for j-cars before. Besides
doiiiff his duty in the pulpit, and
in his field of labor as a clergyman,
he hae interested Limsoli to a great
extent in live pursuits of farmers,
stock-raisers and gardeners, and
has spent considerable time and
means in trying to better the
worldly condition of those with
whom he has to do. When he first
came here, ho took a firm and un
compromising position. as a Prohi
bitionist, and, when called upon,
hae spoken out with emphasis on a
few occasions against the liquor traf
fic. He never wrote a political ed
itorial for any paper in bis lite:, al
though wo do not see why he could
not consistently do so if lie desired
to. (We might here n.ention that
the editor of the Independent docs
not have to depend on outsiders to
writo editorials.) For all this, Mr.
Courtnght is to bo falsely assailed
m a public print, owned and pub
lished, if not edited, by one who
but recently was making his living
by peddling whisky over the coun
try, telling hell' and damnation to
poor, frail humanity; doing all he
could to fill the country with wid
ows and orphans, all ho could to
rob men nnd their families on this
earth and damn them eternally.
We should think the Prosbyteriaits
of Bristol and Decrfield, and of the
count-, would feel like giving the
Democrat, and its owner, the cold
shoulder. If tho Democratic party
is to bo built up by assailing the
characters of clergymen, and by
suppoiting every vice and crime in
the land, wethiiik there are a uood
many men in Bristol and Duerfiield
thai will conclude that they had
better leave ;t and become Prohi

Democrats of Bristol and Deerficid,
and of the whole county ? Hero is
your Democratic organ assailing
jour clergymen, endorsing' the
whisky sua beer traffic by rejoicing
over the repeal of the beer ordin
ance, excusing the iate New York

better the condition of men. Are

is doing the same thing, and the es
tablishment tho Herald thinks "re

plys a want long felt," is nothing
more or less than a becr-suloon,
where in addition to all the beer
you may want, you can get a meal

paragraph tho Herald makes great
pretentions to temperance, and in
another we find it reeomending

A gentlemen calls the Democrat

I O.v last Sabbatb morning, Bev.
I Henry Cooper, of the Presbyterinn
Church of this place, preached
from the 24th verse of the 27lh
chapter of Matbew :
"'When Pilate saw that he could prevail
nothing, but that rather a tumult was made,
he took water, and washed bis hands be
fore the multitude, laying, 'I am innocent
or the bluod of this just person: see ve to
it.'" . '
The ppeaker painted in bis pecu
liarly vivid manner, the character
of Pilate, as sitting in Judgement
on Christ. As Coventor and J udjie,
it was the duty of Pilate to pass
judgment in nccoidance with tho
laws. If Cbritt vs a violator of
the laws, r.nd clearly proven so by
the tostimony, it was Pilate's duty
to render judgment accordingly;
but, if on the other hand, Christ
was innocent of all infractions of
iba laws, it was Pilate's duty, not
only lorecogn:ze and project the
rigbtsof innocence, but also to pre
serve the supremacy of law uud or
der, and to acquit hint. Tho trial
was bad, the evidence against Christ
had been duly exain-.nel
a.tiw .vsuu,. iiumi lip .. t i
found him in fact it '-just person.
He signified as much to the rabble
that was crj ing for Christ's blood
time and again, but finally gave
him up to be crucified, and then
attempted to wash his bands of the
responsibility of yieldiog up the
laws to be trampled under foot by
the rabble. The ppeaker thought
there bad been rccnt ovidcuces
in this country of a disposition on
tho pari of magistrates to yield
up the laws to be put under the
feet of mobs, and he rightly thought
that this fast-growing tendency was
threatening to our liberties as a
free people. Our magistrates should
be taught by thoso who place them
in power that they are not to be
influenced by aught else than the
laws and tho rights and duties of
cit:zcns under the laws. Ho evi
dently thought, too, that the politi
cal parties controlling localities
where the dispostion of magistrates
to yield to mob -influence? lias been
evident, should not bo allowed to
wash the.ir hands of the responsi
bility ot tho blood shed and the
peace and quiet disturbed.
While we agree with Mr. Coop
er in all thai he said, yet we cannot
help carrying tho application of the!
principle a little further than ho
did. Pilate, 1:1 listening to tho
rabble, and surrendering tho law
to the demands of the rabble, was
actuated by the same motives thai
actuated Mayor Hull and Superin
tendent of Police Kelso in issuing
their order lor the Orangemen not
to parade in New York City, and
also by the motives that actuated
the Republican State Convention
of Ohio in nominating Jacob Muel
ler, of Cleveland, for' Lieutenant
Governor of Ohio They all sur
rendered principle in tho Lope of
continuing in popularity and in
power. Pilate thought if bo did
not hearken unto tho priests and
the rabblo and give Christ up to be
crucified, bis power and influence
would be lost in tho land. Mayor
Hall and Kelso thought if tiny did
not trcckie to the mob spirits of
New York City that Ihcy would
lose their voles at the next election.
The Republicans of Ohio, in Con
veutiou assembled, thought if they
did not make concessions to tho
lnger beer and liberal German elov
mejit of Ohio by nominating a Ger
man liberal for an important office,
that they would lose the Lager beer
and free Sunday voles of Ohio.

Temperance Meeting at
LYOYDSVILLE. Belmont Co.,
Ohio, July 29th, 1871.
Editor Independent: The usu
al sleepy-hollow aspect of this
place was broken in upon to-day,
at an early hour, by the assemb
ling of quite a crowd of "fair wo
men and brave men,-' who came in
obedience to a call of tho I. O. G.
T's for the purpose of consulting
together as to tho best means of ad
vancing tho canse of temperance.
On visiting the 6ciene, one was for
cibly reminded of the once familiar
operation ofgomv into camp,
"The banners floated in the breeze,
And bands braviuusic poured."
The weather wns such as we
might imagine was gotten up for
the occasion. Jjisrht. floating clouds
veiled Ihe dazzling brightness of
the sun without giving the scene a

more respoctable crowd than that

tiful daughters, and steady sons.
wei here; the merchant laying
aside his yard stick, nnd tie me
tallic, with his Sunday suit donn
el, were here; younj men and muv
dens, radiant with health and hap
piness, and decked with the regalia
of the 1. O. G. T., wore here. In
short it wns a scene,
Where wife and friends laugh merrily.
Without the aid of w:ne."
The obj-set of ihe meeting was
briefly 6tated by a member of the
Lodge, after which a most clcquenl
and appropriate address was deliv
ered by the Rev. Mr. Hidge of the
Christian Church. The echos of
that speech will thrill tho hearts of
'While life, or thoncht. or being last.
Or immortality endure?."
Strongmen, men who with nn
faltermg steps, with unquailing eye,
with unlailmg purpose, and with
dauntless courage, bad faced the
battle's storm, 6tood and wept like
babies. If that was weak, God
helD the stroncr. Tbo vast crowd
listened with wrapt attention while
tho speaker hurled shot after shot
into the enemies ranks.
He was followed by Rev. I. TJ.
Feisterm one of his characteristic
lectures. The speachea occupied
nearly the entire day, and ycl there
was very little eviaence of fatigue
on the part of the bearers. Late
in the afternoon the crowd dispers
ed with renewed purpose to use
their strength for the cause.
aup Meeting, at Summerfield,
Noble County, will commence
the 10th of this mouth.
Col. McCook, in continnation of
his missionary labors on the Wes
tern .Reserve, spoke yesterday at
Chardon, in Geauga County. His
speech related mainly to taxes and
the tariff those topics having bocn
particularly prescribed for that lo-
cality, as be informed his auditors,
by the committee under whose aus
pics he is traveling. Aside from
bis advocacy of free trado. the only
thing particularly notable in his
speech, was the reply lo a written
interrogator of a Republican edit
or, in regard to "new departure."
This rnodo of catechising, tho Dem
ocratic caudidate recognized as
"fair nnd polite," and wo must con
cede that, after a little preliminary
talk which might havo been con
strued as showing a desire lo got
avyay from the point black question,
ho finally met it squarely. Col.
McCook has made progress sinco
bis nom;nstior. In short, bo de
parts. Tho question addressed to him
wr.s so framed as to leave no loop
hole of retreat, or for paltering iu a
double sense. It was in these
Do the Democracy of Ohio, by the
so-called New Departure plank in
their platform, desire it to be under
stood that they accept the last three
amendmennients to the Constitution
of the I'nited States in the same sense
and to the same extent that they do
all other provisions of that instru
ment, as portions of the supreme law
of the land, not now and never hete
after to be made political issues?
After objecting to the let of June
resolutions being called a "new tie,
parture," he said they "pledged the
party t the support of tho Consti
tution. The party hod always
been a constitution -loving pmty.
When ho received the nomination
he said that no black man who had
received the ritht to vote under the
Fifteenth Amendment ever crrild
have it taken away." Then, divid
ing the question propounded to him,
ho proceeded to say :
1. I am asked as t the 1 hirtecnth,
Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amend
ments: ''Do you regard them as in the

January ord, 18.i3.
lie continued a member of the
Brookfield Church untfl 1S54 when he
withdrew by letter, rnd joined the
Kockville Baptist Church. His God
ly walk and conversation won for him
the esteem and confidence of the
Church, mid June 22nd, 1861, he was
elected Deacon, and in .Setpmber fol
lowinc, during the association at the
Church, he wns ordained, which rela
tion he sustained until his death, hav
ing been a member of church for 33
years. In the death of our dear broth
er we have lost a faithful, earnest and
devoted Christia'n; sound in doctiine,
wise in Counsel, and "always abound
ing in love."
His chief concern was the prosper
ity of the kingdom of his adorable Re
deemer. During his lat illness hia
mind dwelt principally upon the pros
perity of the Church to which he be1
longed. In him the Church has lost
one of its strongest pillars and advo
cates, and the family an irretrievable
loss. He has left a beloved wife, bun
and daughter to mourn his departure,
and a large circle of friencls. On We l
nesday, the 12th, his remains were ta
ken to Wesley Chapel where his fu
neral sermon was preached by hia for-
oner pastor, x.. . Dannels, lrom 2d
Sam., 3d Chapter, 38th verse, "Know
ye not that there is a Prince and great
man fallen this day in Israel''? after
which they were deposited in their
last resting place to await the resur
rection of the just.
May God bless and sanctify this loss
to t he good of the Church and family,
and may we all be admonished to pre
pare for the change that awaits us all,
"for we are but stranpers here," and
may the grace of God our Heavenly
Father comfort and sustain our dear
sister, nnd her family, in their sad be
reavement, remembering '"he doethall
things well," and may this dispensa
tion of his divine providence admonish
us who remain to be prepared like him,
who has cone "to be with Christ, which
is lar better.

it is DMi-iIly swailowed, is not our province

Let it Be Itememlered,
first of all, that IIOOFLAXD'S German
Bitters is not a tnm beverage. They are
not alcoholic in any sense of the. term.
Tbej are composed wholly ol the pare juice

wholly free from spirituous ingredients.
The objections which hold with so much
force against preparations of this cits',
namely tbat a desiie for intoxicating
drinks is t imnlatcd hy their use. are not

So fur from eneoarage or inculcating a
taste or di sire for inebriation beverasea,
it my be confidently asserted that their
tendency is in a diametrically opposite di
leclioc. Their effects can be
in a'l ce of the biliary system. Hnr-f -land's
German Bitters stand without so e.

and dreaded di.-euse, Pyspepsia,
They Stand Unrivaled.
Now, there are certain classes cf pet eons
