"Debociuct 1b a sentiment not to be appalled,
corrupted or compromised. It knows no baseness,
cowers to no danger, oppresses no weakness. Fear
lets, generont and humane, H retrokes the arrogant,
ehcrlf hea honor, and sympathies with the humble.
It aeka nothing but what It concedes; it concedes
nothing but what It demands. Destructive only of
despotism, it it the sole conservative of liberty, la
bor end property. It is the sentiment of freedom,
of equal obligations. It la the law of nature per
vading the law of the land. The stupid, the tel.
Ash, the base in spirit may denounce It at a vulgar
thing; bnt jn the history of our race the Demo
cratic principle baa developed and illustrated tbo
highest moral and intellectual attributes of onr
nature. Yet, this It a noble, magnanimous, a sub
lime sentiment, which expands oar affections, en
larges the circle of oar sympathies and elevates the
soul of man until, claiming an equality with the
best, he rejects at unworthy of hit dignity any po
litical immunities over the humblest of his fellows.
Yes, It la an ennobling principle; and may that
spirit which animated our father in the Revolution
ary contest for its eitabllehment continue to ani
mate nt, their sons, in the impending ttrngelo for
its preservation." - WILLIAM ALLEN.
HON. JOHN II. OBERLY.
How an abolitionist and" anti-states rights
man can ba a Democrat ia a question we
cannot solve; J. II. Obcrly is an exumple.
Johnson County Journal.
Very true, very true, we tlo not expect
you to understand the reasons, the motive
and impulse that actuate great and progres
sive minds. The Journal may have ability
to observe and note results but the inquiry
into the reasons requires a mental exertion
that the Journal man has never been
known to exert. It is a fact that Mr. Obcrly
was an abolitionist, that is, was in fa
vor of abolishing slavery, that he was and
' is an anti-states rights man and at the same
time is a Democrat. Mr. Oberly is a pro
gressive man; he is a leader in political
thought. When in the legislature he voted
for tho establishment of colored schools in
the state of Illinois, and when asked
whether his party would endorse his ac
tion he replied that "if they do not, endorso
my action now I hope to be an humble ins
trument in educating them up to see the
importance of what we have done." And so
it has been, the Democracy of Illinois to
day stands with Mr. Oberly as tho cham
pion, the advocate of free schools to all,
supremacy of the national government,
equal rights before the law of every citizen,
regardless of his race, color or previous
condition ot servitude But the Journal
can not understand this. If tho Journal
would look at facts as tho passing history
of our country presents them in the light of
intelligence rather than in the dark lamp
of ignorance and prejudice, he could then
begin to understand why progress ,..
going on instead of standing still. So
long, brother Journal, as you draw your in
spiration from the infamois Okolono
States you may expect to be ii total dark
niss as to the progress of poliical affairs in
our states. -Metropolis Tim.
FROM THE FEDERAICAPITOL.
From our own regular cpondent.
Washington, jigust 4, 1879.
There is something sug'stive if not in
structive, in the following &ud the plain
people to whom PresiiU Lincoln was
londof referring, Bhoukput it away for
'It scemi that Englrl is not the only
place where the leadin representative of
our government, oh a lary ot $17,500 a
S year, has to spend mo than Ma salary in
order to live. Mr. itor.,--ffl toeing
questioned on the sJ60- recently said
that during hi rig months' residence
in StPetenburglpt him just doible
hi. salary to kwuP appearances. He
said to live within the 'salary
allowed by the government
would not be In the way society there
expected of tho representative of the United
States. In his opinion tho real intellectual
work required ot a minisitor to Russia
would not occupy a week's time in a year."
Admitting the necessity of a Ministor to
England or Russia, such minister should of
course bo paid salary enough to support
him in 6uch style as his office requires. But
may not this man Soiighton be simply a
tilly man who was carried away by the sup
posed Importance of himself or his office?
He received it as pay for work in connec
tion with the counting in of Mr. Hayes. He
may, in that one who can make a president,
against tho wish of a whole people, is enti
tled to greater pay than we give
our public servants. jviucn nas
been said, also, of the expenses
attending the English Mission. I remem
ber that Mr. Buchanan lived within his in
come, while minister to England, and that
his great popularity as minister materially
assisted in making him President. Zilar
Wright, another Democrat, refused to, live,
while govenor of New York, in a house lor
which his salary would not pay. While
every citizen has trfo right to squander his
money in any way he chooses. Wo should
discountenance the idea that our servants
tho servants of the people must live
beyond the salaries voted them by law.
The Radical papers attempt to belittle
the importance af Hon. Geo. D. Gorham's
defection. Mr. Gorham is one ,of the
ablest men of his party. His support of
the Democratic candidate for gorernor in
California is not only decisive as to the re
sult in that state, but is, probably, the per
curser of other important changes.
Prominent Ohio Democrats just arrived
here confirm late favorable advices as to
the campaign there. It may also be said
that letters from Maine arc of the most en
couraging character. The result of Secre
tary Sherman's visit was not all
that was hoped for.
Those vsefcl conduits, the kidneys
and bladder, sometimes become torpid aud
weak from unascertainable causes, vhen
this occurs, their discharging function is of
necessity very imperiectly performed, and
certain debris, which is the result of natural
bodily waste and decay, does not escape as
it slioula, but remains to corrupt the ulooa
and develop poisonous humors and danger
ous as well as painful diseases. It is one of
tho beneficent effects of Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters to gently stimulate the urinary or
gans, and prevent them from lapsing into a
state ot inactivity, always provocative ot
their inflammatory degeneration and decay.
How much better, then, is it to adopt this
mild diuretic as a means of inciting them to
action, than to. incur the danger of this de
struction. To expel from the system waste
matter through tho bowels and kidneys,
and to regulate and arouse the stomach
and liver, are among the chief uses of this

THE EQUITABLE LIFE ASSURANCE
SOCIKTY.OF THE UNITED STATES
MAKES THE FOLLOWING ASSOXCE
MENT TO THE PUBLIC:,
The dissatisfaction which prevails
throughout the community with regard to
onerous conditions contained in life assur
ance contracts and tho judicial decisions
based thereon, together with the public in
dorsement of the liberal usages of this So
ciety, as shown by its largely increased
busincfs, has led the management seriously
to consider whether the contract could not
be simplified and certain conditions erssed
therefrom which have been the subject of
much criticism and misconception.
After a careful examination ot the ex
perience of some of the best companies in
Great Britain, who have shown a greater
liberality than has been customary in this
country, this society feels justifieirin adopt
ing a form of contract in which the follow
ing important concessions are made to pol
icy holders throughout the United States :
1. Policies will be made incontestable
after tftree years from their date.
2. Each ordinary policy will provide for
a definate surrender-value in paid-up assur
ance, in case the policy is forfeited after j
three years from its date.
3. Jacn lontine policy will contain a
definite surrender-value in cash, in case of
withdrawal at the end of the tontine
4. The contract will be concisely and
clearly expressed, containing only such
provisions as are necessary to protect the
5. The above concessions will hereafter
inure to the benefit of all policies already
issued and in force, after three years from
their dates respectively.
As Old Doctor's Advce. It was this:
"Trust in God and keep your bowels open.''
For this purpose many an old doctor has
advised the habitually costive to take Kidney-Wort
for no other remedy so effect
ually overcomes this condition, and that
without the distress and griping which
other medicines cause. It is a radical
cure for piles.
