With this issue the Graphic enters
Its fifth volume It has nmvm
markably tluiftj child
even no 1
oiia lis critics
vuger call it a baby
With a bonafidc circulation of six
teen hundred it feels justified in in
dulging In a little pardonable pride on
- such an occasion as this
It is very pleasant to feel that it has
the good will and good wishes of so
many people
The Graphic made no great prom-
lses wnen 11 siartea 11 omy iu
people to try it and see to give it a
fair show alongside of its cotempora
ries and then judge it That is all it
asks now We believe as long as it
merits support it will be pretty certain
to receive it When it ceases to do
that just drop it that is all
And now to our patrons we will say
in the language of Rip Van Winkle
May you all live long and prosper
EDITORIAL NOTES
Congress has been in session
four months now and has passed twen
ty bills
Four inches snow in Kansas on
Tuesday and trains delayed by it
The republicans of Blooming
ton Ills scored a victory at their elec
tion Tuesday
Arkansas strawberries will be ripe
in about ten days
Queen Victoria is reported
to have a bad attack of the back ache
Even queens are subject to the ills of
mortal flesh
The fragrance of the pine woods
of Maine have even prenctrated the
lar west Dinna ye hear the slogan
There is as much difference be
tween a political leader and a political
boss as there is between a ward
politician and a statesman
It is every citizens duty to take
an interest in politics When a man
argues that only a chosen few have any
right to be heard on such matters he
only exhibits his own narrow selfish
ness
Though a man may not be
blessed with a superabundance of
cash that is no sign that his political
views are either unsound or unworthy
of attention The men who spend
the most money or do the most
trigger work in caucus and conven
tion are not always the safest guide
by any means
The returns from county and
district conventions continue to come
in but there is a remarkable monotony
about them Whenever the rank and
file have expressed a preference the
name of James G Blaine heads the
list
BLAISES BOOM
Many mouths ago the Graphic ex-
pressed its preference for Jas G
Blaine as the next candidate for the
presidency on the republican ticket
We took occasion to say then and
the facts of the past four weeks have
justified that statement that we be
lieved that the popular voice would
sanction that preference
Everywhere almost where the peo
ple have voted on the subject the bal
lot has stood largely in his favor Yet
neither Blaine nor his friends so far
as we know have made an effort eith
er to work up or bring out that senti
ment It seems to be purely sponta
neous and is not confined to an sec
tion or state
One thing is sure The politicians
and pipe layers have done their pest to
kill him off without success This
process has been going on ever since
he stepped out of Arthurs cabinet
In this state the Globe Democrat has
howled itself hoarse against Blaine yet
it is pretty certain he would carry a
clear majority at a primary election
over all other candidates combined
Can he be elected
We think so Much easier indeed
than some make shift nobody put up
as a compromise
But the Blaine men are willing to
abide the result
They can vote for the nominee
whether it be Logan or Lincoln o -Edmonds
or evenMr Arthur shoul d
fate and the Chicago convention
decree
The talk about Grant being a
didate we take to be nonsense
As the outlook now appears
should not be surprised if James
jiiaine 01 Maine would be the n
nee of the Chicago convention
that too without very many ballot
so

THE PROMISE L1D

A recent -telegram from London
announces the resignation of his past
orate in London by Rev Moncure D
Conway with the intention of making
the United States his future home Mr
Conway is a man whose literaiy fame
is world wide and he is the recognized
leader of the English rationalistic re
ligionists In giving his reasons fo a J
change to America Mr Con- 1
presses a -
rit that has of
- more than once found ex
pression That to America hereafter
must the world look to its best ad
vancement in literature and rcience
as well as for governmental and mate
rial and mechanical -development
American literature was once the sneer
of the old country Who ever reads
an American bopk was once consid
ered a witticism American engravers
artists magazines auu ucpw3
have not only invaded but held English
territory they are rated the best in
the world In giving his reasons for
casting his lot here Mr Conway says
Experience has convinced me mat a
man with brains ideas and ability for
effective work can do more real good
by using his talents in the United
States than he can accomplish
anywhere else The Americans
n he influenced in favor of
right changes They are disposed to
do what they can be shown is right
They have no prejudices in favor of ex
isting wrong systems They are the
salt of the modem world It is almost
impossible for any person who well
knows America and the Americans to
be contented with life anywhere outside
of the United States Believe me the
majority of Englishmen who have visit
ed the United States and become pro
perly acquainted with the real charac
ter pf the country look upon it with
longing eyes as the earthly promised
land I returned from my recent tour
around the world with such new vis
ions concerning America that 1 find
myself discontented here and unable
to resist the desiie to return and re-
main there

We have always argued that Kirits
ville would not only patronize but also
appreciate first class talent and tiat
our lecture committees heref0fore
have failed principally bcause tnev
insisted on providing ratc or
little know talent
t pieases us to say
that W J Smitrs first velurCf m this
direction ir the en c a cement of Miss
Anna Djckinson proved financially
provable
The lecture on the first evening we
consider a gem both in the composi
tion of the lecture itself and the man
ner of delivery We know some will
disagree with us and urge that there
were mannerisms that spoiled the
effect To us it was a positive luxury
to listen to the clear cut incisive sen
tences as they fell with such force from
the lips of the speaker The manner
isms such as there were were all for
gotten The reading of the play on
the second evening while it was not as
well calculated to catch the popular
ear as a lecture would have been was
certainly a marvelous perlormance All
the way through the plot of the play
was not obscured and each of the
main characters were made to stand
out with a distinct personality The
play itself contains many oems of
sentiment and expression To ascer
tain how difficult a matter it is let any
good reader sit down and attempt to
read aloud any play say -one of
Shakespearj and make it entirely in
telligible with out scenery and the
other usual accompaniments and we
think they vrill agree with us
We regret that Miss Dickinson
did not substitute for her last nights
performance her lecture en Wendell
Phillips or Womans Rights Most
of these cistern lecturers imagine Mis
souri auJiences too prejudiced to lis
ten to s uch things but we do no be
lieve si jch would be the case in Kirks
ville
And while we are on this subject
we t fish to say that the introduction of
Mir s Dickinson to the audience

The Bazoo has no interest whatever
in the late republican state convention
between Filley and Van Horn but
having heard considerable comment
and many severe strictures upon the
action of the chairman of the conven
tion in declaring out of order a motion
to nominate Mr Fillej by acclamation
as a delegate at hirge to Chicago and
afterwards entertaining a motion of
the same tenor in the case of John B
Henderson The vote in this connec
tion is interesting as indicative of the
tyranny which political leaders will as
sume when they have the power
The vote was as follows
C L Filley 214
C HBiown 44
J W Wheeler colored 1S6
Judga Wapner 90
John 3 Henderson 182J4
General Prentiss 316
HE Havens 287
J Milton Turner 16
TCFletcher 31
TJChen 89
J Q Dallmeyer 33
There were only 360 delegates vot
ing and the rule of the convention was
that a majority of the votes cast elect
ed It would seem that Filley having
a clear majority of thirty three ol all
the votes cast was duly elected but
the chair decided not By what rule
of arithmetic or science of legal deduc
tion he was governed is not known

Ingersoll though he writes in prose
is one of the greatest poets that ever
lived What could be more beautiful
and pcetic than this discription of
Iauehter given in his lecture on The
Liberty of Man Women and Child
Strike with a hand of fire O weird
musican the harp strung with Appollos
golden hair rill the vast catheral aisles
with symphonies sweet and dim deft
touchers of the organ key blow bugle
blow until thy silver notes do touch
and kiss the moonlit waves and charm
the lovers wandering mid the vine
clad hills But know your sweetest
strains are discords all compared
with childhoods happy laugh the
laugh that fills the eyes with light and
every heart with joy O nppling river
of laughter thou art the blessed
between the beasts and men
and every wayward wave of thine doth
drown some fretful Mend of care
O Laughter rose liped daughter of
Joy there are dimples enough in thy
cheeks toa catch and hold and gforify
all the tears of grief
We took a look through the Kirksville
Business College on Tuesday and
found things going along at a very sat
isfactory rate Over two hundred
students are enrolled Next week the
actual business department will be
opened where stndents can gain a com
plete knowledge of retail and wholesale
and banking business by actually doing
the work and carrying the transactions
of each business though a complete
set of books
