The onslaught that is being made by
the courts and press on the practice of car

marked effect. Let the warfare go on, and
twelve months from now the reward of the
effort will he seen a great diminution of the
bloody crimes thnt now so frequently shock
and nppal society. Why is the pulpit silent!
Surely in a great moral movement of this
kind it should have all its armor on, and be
foremost where the fight is the thickest.
Our ministers and Sabbath School teachers
should denounce the carrying of concealed
weapons as a crime as a practice at once
ruffianly, and as one that should mark the
line between savagery aud civilization. The
courts and the press are, ns we have said,
making n noble fight against the practice.
Let the pulpit, our schools and all the
moral agencies of society make common
cause in the same direction, and the present
generation will live to see the time when
the private citizen who carries deadly
weapons about his person, will be held as a
social out-cast, and he hunted down as an
A HUGE SWINDLE EXPOSED.
A few days ago Mr. J. B. Reed received
a letter irom R. V. Kingswell, who writes
on a letter head of the Hamilton House, San
Francisco. The letter informs Mr. Reed
that on the 7th of April, a stranger named
Reed died of peumonia, in the Hamilton
House; that he left a fine gold watch and
chain, a valuable seal ring, gold studs aud
sleeve buttons, a large lot of ch 'thing
and a trunk, the contents of which had
not heen ascertained. Mr. Reed was writ
ten to because a scrap ot paper containing
his name and address was found on the de
ceased's person, which suggested that Mr.
R. was a relative of the deceased. The
writer then continues. '-If you will send
me $30 to pay deceased's hotel hill, I will
immediately seal up and send to you the
effects above enumerated." That
this is a confidence gf.nie" is
pretty well attested by t!u follow
ing associated press di-patch s-r.t out
from San Franci-eo.on the lith in.-;:
"A middie-ai'-.d man wa :.rret--d this

It is perhaps needh-s to add that our

TEMPER .TK CONVENTION
Y EST E It DAY.
riiQCT.rjjiN'.s of the moilnino AM) ait::!'.-
The Temperance mass meeting, under
the auspices ot the Woman s Christian
Temperance Unions of the ISth congress
ional district, opr-ned with devotional exer
cises, led by Mrs. P. W. Barclay, of Cairo.
The President of the Union, Mrs. Ritten-
hous", welcomed the guests in a manner
fully expressive of lu-r own and lu r c.i
laborers' earnestness in the work, to which
Mrs. Stocking, of Anna, Vice-President of
the 19th district very happily responded.
By a vote of those present it was decided
that the convention should be considered a
mass meeting instead of u meeting of del
egates. All present were invited to partic
ipate in the discussions, though no gentle
had as yet been permitted to vote in a dis
trict convention, and no hopes were held
out that this occasion would be an excep
tion to tin; established rule.
A committee to enroll delegates, consist
ing of Mrs. Winter, of Cairo, and Mrs.
Phillips, of Ihi (hioin, was appointed.
Executive committee, Mrs. (loss, Mrs. Rit
tcnhouse, Mrs. Yost and Capt. Williams.
Mrs. Willard advocated the merits of
"Our Union," im interesting temperance
organ, which needed a persistent, good na-
tared, energetic canvasser, As we have
such a one with th-s work already begun,
Mrs. P. W. Barclay was instructed to en
large her list to its utmost capacity.
A committee, consisting of Mrs. Rittcn
house, Mrs. George, Mrs. Henderson, Capt.
Williams and Dr. Dunning was instructed
to send a telegram, conveying the thanks of
this convention, to those member of tho
House ot Representatives, who voted for
the Hines' bill. Meeting adjourned to
meet at 2 p. m.
Tho afternoon session opened with devo
tional exercises conducted by Mrs. Thomp
son, of Anna, a veteran crusader.
The minutes of the morning session were
Reports were called for. The commit
tee on telegram reported : "From the lMli
District Temperance Convention to Speaker
of the House of Representatives. c
thank you for your vote on the Hines' I'M-
flod speed tho right."
The chairman of the enrollment commit
tee reported .17 names enrolled. Repnrt
were read from auxiliary temperance socle
ties throughout the district. Mrs. Lathrop
of Three Hivers stood up gloriously for the
good State of Michigan.
Miss Willard spoke convincingly of the
advantages of auxiliaryship. We regret
exceedingly that time and space forbid, our
giving even quotations from her remarks.
A paper prepared by Dr.R. Tracy Cutler,
of Cobden, was read,in that lady's absence,
by Mrs. Dr. Wardencr, of Anna.
We trust to sec many more friends nt our
Thursday session, ami to join with a multi
tude, at our picnic on Friday.
In the evening the convention was ably
addressed by that tireless and most effect
ive worker in the cause, Miss Francis E.
Willard. The address was preceeded and
followed by excellent vocal music by the

will not fail !
When we gather together upon tur-h oc
casions as 'the present, all biim-full and
overflowing with ardor for the cause we
love, infusing each other with magne
tism and entiiiisia-ni. it is easy to believe
that the pathway leading to reformation, is
one fringed with Mowers and carpeted witl
fragrant, yielding grasses that we are -
happy, triumphant procession, brave, strong
ghi'l-hearted, and that there is notiiin;;
easier than to capture the stronghold of the
enemy. But as a matter of stern fact, this
is not so. It is not with us i.s with the
children of Israel in olden times; we can
not by inarching around the citadel of the
enemy seven times, and by the blow ing of
trumpets and the shouting of our peopl
break down the sin-riveted, crime-clad
walls surrounding it. It must be n
hand to hand encounter, even after the
walls are demolished wc must light the
sacred lires of truth and justice, and burn
down the evil passions and pnju
dices arising as obstacles in our
way. Not with loud voices only,
but by silently living temperate, irre
proachable lives ourselves; by the timely
word fitly spoken, even though we may risk
losing tin; friendship of some we love, shall
we finally overthrow our oppressors. This
work, as you all know by this time, has got
to be oue of self-forgetfulness, of self-sucri
flee, counting our own pleasures as naught,
if only the falleu are up-lifted, und men are
savcii from the devil of strong drink. We
can not afford to halt; we must not allow
ourselves to grow weary and faint-hearted;
we mothers especially, it we think of the
mighty issues nt stake, dare not falter.
When I clasp my innocent baby hoy to mv
heart, und see the dear blue eyes turned up
to mine with that perfect trust in me, that
baby faith that "mama" is all-powerful, all
ulHcient to ward oil' every danger seen and
Bnseen, dare I cease using all my feeble
jtrcngth to tear up and remove every evil
hat may menace him;
' To me there is n thrill of gladicss in the
ihought that the time has come when it U

'y!,Cse are : -t fanciful pictures, painted to
please our temper. inc.- visions, but scenes
from real life, and wc can show you many
of them here.
When ilr-t we start -d nut in the work in
Cairo, we said among ourselves, ''if we suc
ceeded in saving even one man, -we should
fee! mere than repaid for any trouble or ex
pense vw.-might incur." You can imagine
then, how happy it has made US, to see our
warmest hopes more than realized, and yet
We .!! not sati-fird. WcWallt tills lhtle
trmper.tr.ee pebble we have thrown into the
great sea of intemperance in
our mid-t, to s"nd it purifying
ripples farther and farther away from tie
place where it fell, till at last the whole
surface of the sea shall be agitated and up
heaved by it. It seems t me the time has
come to cease handling the temperance
ipiestion with our gloves on time to call
things by their right iiaiiies, and to throw
hard fact like bomb-shells, into the eanip
of tlie opposing parly. ' .
Let no moral cowardice which we may
clothe with some more pleasing name, pre
vent us trom doing our duty, openly avow
ingour principles, and lighting to uphold
them. The temperance cause is like the
trees of the forest; the heat and cold, frost
and rain, but tiring to life at lust,
tho bcajitiful foliage the rough winds
that toss them so rudely about,
but cause the faithful roots logo further
into the ground, till they stand up strong
and defiant, a refuge f r the weary and
heated tiuvcler. So also must we expect
the chilling frost and the hurtling sun we
must nerve ourselves to withstand the un
friendly storms that will rage around us,
by rooting our principles still more firmly
in the cause we love. It would not be best
to meet with no opposite n. Our work
would become tame and monotonous, and
in time we might wcarv of it. There is no
child so dear to in, ns the one over whose
crad.u we have hung with ncliing hearts
und tear-dimmed eyes, ns we have loilght
away the grim shadow of death, with n
lletceness born of despair. Did we not lit
tlie birth of this child of love, tremble for
months lest the frail spark of life should
go out, leaving us again in darkness? Yet
it lives; it has grown; it is fast becoming a
healthful, vigorous child. In a few short
yean by the time it reaches Its iimjorlty nt
least, wc hope to sec it developed info a
mighty giant, so brave, so powerful mat
naught can prevail against It.
Hut I nm trcsspussing upon your time in
are the open secrets of my
an unpardonable manner. I started out to
L'ive you a few words of welcome, and have
lectured you instead. Let my love for the
cause wc all represent be my excuse. In
conclusion, may we all live not only to see
the flower, but to taste the luscious fruits of
this seed-planting. Onee more, in behalf
of our people, let me give you most cordial
welcome to our homes, our hail ond our
much abused little town, which, already
very nearly surrounded by aur mighty
rivers, we wish to make in a vet fuller and
