County CennblJcatis Will Decide I'poo
the Day at Once.
The Republican County Committee will
meet to-night to decide upon a day for the
holding of the municipal primaries, and
may nlso Cx the day for the holding of the
convention. They have not yet decided
whether to hold one or two conventions, bat
the prevailing sentiment seems to be in favor
of the former. The call has been blocked
out. but the date and that poition of it
relating to the latter question have
b-i-n left open for further di-cussion.
The primaries will bo oiien, as in the
c.ise of the election ot delegates to
the Mate Convention, and it is uot thought
tliattuen will be any trouble in any of the
districts. All factions seem to agree in the
belief that with a proper show of harmony
»i.d the entire elimination of "boss
methods, there will be every chance for Re
publican success, and they realize, un the
other hand, that .i repetition ol the disgrace

victory to Buckley.

Entbusiaslic Mass - Meeting: at
Interesting Addresses by Catholic and Epia
■■'■ copal Clergy— Evils of Intemper
Last evening s mass-meeting of citizens
devoted to the temperance cause was held
at Metropolitan Hall, where a gcodly num
ber of ladies as well as gentlemen assembled
to show interest in the movement. Promptly
at 8 o'clock the Chairman, James R. Kelly,
entered upon the stage, followed immedi
ately by Key. J. Sanders Keed of the
Episcopal Church and Rev. Father Mont-
• mery of St. Mary's Cathedral, after whom
came the Vice-Presidents and other getitie
nien who were announced to take part in
the proceedings. The reverend gentlemen
were both accorded a warm reception by .the
assemblage, the echoes of which had hardly
died away before Bishop Kicholls made his
wav to the platform amid renewed applause.
After an organ selection Miss Auld sang a
pretty operatic air, at the conclusion of
which the Chairman addressed the meeting
upon the reasons for their being called to
gether — to give expression to' their abhor
rence of the liquor traffic as it is now con
ducted and to suggest the nomination of de
cent, honorable men upon the municipal
tickets which in a month or so the citizens
will be called upon to vote. Mr. Kelly then
made an earnest appeal in behalf of temper
ance, and, in concluding his remarks, iutro
dnced the first speaker of the evening, Rev.
J. Sanders Reed.
i:ev. sir. reed's address.
Mr. Reed ou coining forward wasted few
words in delving iuto his subject, ''The
Pathogeny of Intemperance, or the Physi
cal Consequences of the Use of Intoxi
cants." In his opening sentence he leu his
hearers to Philadelphia, whose cnarnel
house not long since furni-hed 227 Iwlies
for dissection, of which only 1 per cent
proved to be iv a normal state, while the
other 99 per ceut showed the existence of
various diseases of blood. Drain and viscera,
ail directly traceable to alcoholism. These
bodies, said the speaker, hud for years been
used as bottles fur the storase ot ail kinds
of intoxicating liquors, and few suspected
the real cause of their death till the scalpel
laid bare the secret.
In tiie course of his remarks Mr. Reed en
tered into a very detailed aeeoutt of the
Chemical charact of al ohol, espe
cially »b'n cjiniug in contact with water
or watery substances (which lorm aUjut 60
per cent of the human body) and uloumen,
absorbing the one and toughening the o.her
so that the Intestines become leathery in
their nature, the brain toughens, the cor
puscles of the blood become covered with
spores, and in consequence all of the human
organs f;iil to perform their proper func
tions. Ruddiness ol the face, so often
looked upon as a sign of healtli, is more
otten pioduced by drink, which paralytM
ihu siuull Marvin and drives the blood to the
A DUEADFUL EXPEItIMKXT.
In describing the effects of habitual in
temperance upon the frame tiie speaker de
scribed an experiment which had been made
with a drunkard's body. A portion of it
was put upon a spoon aud held over a
lighted caudle fur a moment, when it imme
diately Calient lire, and a blue Same arose
from it until it was consumed. The corise
had become so impregnated with liijuur that
it burned away like so much alcohol.
Leaving that branch o[ his subject the
speaker enteied tiie field of statistics to show
the steady growth of the liquor traflie and
its relation to crime und insanity. During
the tif teen ye.irs from 1870 to lis.'sS, he said,
the population increased 30 percent, but the
insanity increased 94 per cent. Thirty
years ago in England there was but one in
sane person iii 577 of the population. Fifteeu
years ago this ratio became on« in 370, and
to-day tne asylums shelter 80,000 inmates in
that country alone. In this country the an
nual-increase in the numb -r of idiou and
insane persons i*lO per cent. Of course, he
said, not all of these cases are directly trace
able to liquor, but by far the largest number
must be so charged.
As the drunkard is not the only sufferer
from the diseases which lii vice gives rise
to, society, hn argued, must step in aud regu
late the ir.iffic which is accountable for so
much misery. lie, himself, kuew of chil
diin wliu, though t:.ey never had lasted a
drop of liquor, yet alwayi presented a blear
eyed appearance, anJ drunken visage \» hich
was llioir only iulieritauce from iutemperate
parents. Doctors, too, te-iified that tlie
children ol such people, if not stiliboin,
were brought intu Hie world idiots and epi
leptics, who rarely outlived their childhood.
Thus the iiiifoit'iiiale vietinn of dissipation
were guilty of the double crime oi suicide
On closing his nnalytical remarks, Mr.
Reed called upon the audience to give tiieir
earnest support to the moveoMnt, and then
letired aiuii the heartiest applause.
FATIIEE MON'TGOMEKV'S SPIiECH.
A male qu.irtet theu rendered a lively se
lection, after which the Chairman intro
duced the next speaker, Key. George Mont
gomery, who was most enthusiastically re
When quiet was restored the reverend

hesitated about doing so. not because his
heaitnasnot In the work, but because he
lelt It would not be successful unless It was
made a question of politics, and lolitics was
not his profession. On second consul-ra
tion, however, he di-1 not see why it should
be any more a question of politics thin the
preservation of order in the city, or the
dean! of tun streets, or the hundred
and one matters wbieo affect us as a com
munity; consequently he made up his mind
to join the movement, and he was now
before them to raise his voice in its behalf.
That being the initial meeting under the
auspices of the society, he wished to men
tion a tew of its articles of faith, which, as
ho would put them, were three in number.
He would have it understood beforehand,
however, that the Hi«h License Society
would receive all within its told. It alreiidy
numbered members who bolievt-d in total as
weil as in partial abstinence, and he hoped
Uiedaj would come when the prohibition
ists would come tinder iheir banner. Ho
would heartily welcome those people when
they did eomr, und mean while would allow
do one to vile them for their ideas, beeanse
they wero too sincere and too Zealous in their
woiK to merit being called bard names.
AKTIULES OP FAITH.
The first article in the hich-license creed
is that wrong is in the abuse and not the
use "f what we have. No matter how good
a thing is, its abuse i* always wrong. In
this connection he differed witli the prohibi
tionist, who argued that because live glasses
will intoxicate, a man who drinks one glass
of liquor is one-fifth drunk. As well iirgue,
tie said, that because the average of life is
50 years, a man ol 25 is ha f dead. Their
second belief is that the use of intoxicating
drinks is grossly abused, and their third
that something must and can be done to cor
rect till" abuse.
In support of his theories Father Mont
gomery cited Gladstone, Cardinal Man
ning and other able writers and speak
ers upon tin; extent of the abuse and
the evils resulting from it. More money
was spent in drink during the last fifty years
than was spent in war, including the dis
astrous Franco-Prussian War and the War
of tlie Rebellion. And during the same pe
r;i more lives were sacrificed by drink than
perished by the sword. The commuuity
shouM establish laws to correct this state of
things, which, instead of improving, was
gradually growing worse. If they have not
the power und t their present constitution
they m nsl remember that they are the makers
of constitutions, and it is their duty to effect
the chanties that are necessary in the instru
ment. Gladstone has said "Make it diffi
cult for a man to sii and you help him not
to sin." That is the Idea. They iutend ns
far as pos-ible to relieve the city of its dives
and deadfalls, where vice is mrnpant and
temptation is surrounded with so much glit
ter. He did not think tho high-license
movement wonld accomplish ' visionary
things, but he believed it would at least
drive 1500 of the 3000 saloons in this city
out of existence.
A DISTIUCT SYSTEM.
Speaking fir himself he said he would like
to see a district system established where
the residents could vote to have or not
have saloons, where they could reg
uhttn their character ami number, mid
where mothers mid sinters could vote on the
subject. : Those were the ours who suffered
most and they should be afforded the pro
tection which the ballot would afford them.
After the speaker retired Bishop Xicholls
was introduced and made an able and witty
address to the audience.
Mr. Kelly, in closiug the proceedings, in
vited all to come forward and sign the roll
of membership, and asked those - who could
contribute to the expenses iuciilent to the
movement to do so at the door. ; Both invita
tions were largely accepted.

Everybody has heard of a" horse laugh,"
but who has ever eeen nn rquine gifted with
the power of speech? Such an animal would
be pronounced a miracle; but so would the
te.lefrniph and the telephone a hundred years
ago. Why, even very recently a cure for con-
sumption, which is universally acknowledged
to be scrofula affecting' tho lungfi, would havo
been looked upon as miraculous, but now peo-
ple are beginning to realize that the disease
is not Incurable. Dr. Picrce's Golden Medical
Discovery will euro it, if taken in time and
gl ton a fair trial. This world-renowned rom-
edy will not make new lungs, but it will re-
store diseased ones to a healthy state when
othor menus havo failed. Thousands grate-
fully testify to this. It is the most potent
tonic or strength restorer, alterative, or
blood-cleanser and nutritive, or llesh-builder,
known to medical science. For Weak Lunirs
Spitting of Blood, bronchitis. Asthma, Ca-
tarrh in the Head, and Rll Lingering Coughs,
it is an unequaled remedy. In dcrangementa
of tho stonmch, liver Rna bowels, aa Indiges-
