Chairman, Mr. Browning, refuses to

if he is so disposed.
It is very certain somebody has to
accept the olllee. As we have said
before, it is a position of bard work,
and grave responsibility, which no
body is disposed willingly to assume.
Of course, with one whose business
is entirely incompatible with the
duties of the ollicc, a declination is
admissible*, but it ought not to lie
declined by any one when the call of
the parly is urgent and imperative
merely on the plea of inconvenience,
or because declining i^ fashionable.
There is a duty which eve-ry Demo

called upon to mourn the lossof our
young citizen Henry McKcwn. He
died on .Monday night, anil his fune
ral services were performed on Tues
day afternoon in the .Methodist
Church by Kev. < >. A. Darby, a large
concourse of friends having gathered
to pay the hist tribute of respect to
the memory of a hived one. .Mr.
MeKewn was in the 22nd year of his
a gi?, and a young man of great prom
ise and excellent character.
Ho had been suffering for some
years with consumption, hut his
death came suddenly in (he end.
He leaves an aged mother and many
relatives and friends to mourn his
loss. The hand of Providence has
fallen heavily upon this aillieted
family. Hardly over a year ago a
brother of the deceased was sudden
ly cut down in the flower of youth,
nqd now a weeping mother has been
bowed down under another dispons.t

tended to the mourning ones whose
solace and comfort can only ho found
in 11 iin who ruloth in infinite love,

persed the crowd. The next day the
precinct meeting took place on the

called ihe meeting loonier. In going

nominated for permanent chairman.
The vote being- taken, us is reported
to us, Straker got 55 votes. Thompson

who is in the same faction with Web

the declaration of Thompson in spite
of the vehement protestations of
