oTEPPED ON THEIR COHNS.
To tho Editor of The Times: The few
casual remarks I made., iu your paper
Sunday must.havo pressed the corns ot
some of tho over watchful partisaus.
They bubbled up all over tho Evening
World's editorial side. The caucus is
tho corn. See?
Isn't it amusing to seo that brilliant
crit'c (*), the great aud unanimous load?
ing Democratic organ of all these regions
round about, nold that the gambling law
is a lncal issue; that tho whiskey traffic
and the laws'made to restrict and govern
the same ie confined to this legislative
district; that the question of taxing
clubs is confined to tbe limits ot Roan?
oke. These are questions brought into
discussion, which the Evening World
says are local and henco not to bo cousid
ered by the caucus. We will not tako up
your space to discuss it. Lot the public
decide for themselves.
This would-be Lord Kanies, tbe Even?
ing World, criticises the writer for the
expression, house of representatives, and
substitutes house of delegates. Well we
have no objection to the substitute it it
is more euphonious to the delicate ear
ot the editor of the Evening World; but
we think house of representatives is
equally admissible. Mr. Webster, who
is a conceded authority, .lefines represen?
tative, V'a member of the lower or popu?
lar house in a State legislature, or iu
the national Congress."
The Evening World appears to be ex?
ceedingly anxious to know who voter is.
If it would >-e of any great pleasure or
accommodation to that ever faithful
Democratic party orgau (?) I will say
that voter was a resident of this place
long before the Evening World came intD
existence. He was a resident of this
legislative district when the World
thought more of the Prohibition party
than many of the wh'skey dealers would
now dream of. He was hereabouts a 'ew
months past when this strictly faithful
party organ (t\ shouted down its colors,
draped in Prohibition cloth1 ng and
marched out with plume and sword erect,
eulisted iu -behalf of the local option
fight, and waged a furious war against
rum and its trallic. If the World has
any good reason for knowing who Voter
is nnd will call at Tbe Times 'office aud
make it known he shall be gratified.
I will further observe that there Is not
a word or a syllable in my former com?
munication that can be construed as an
Insinuation that Mr. Hicks was not hon?
est in his expressions, the learned critic
to the contrary notwithstanding.
By the way, why is it the World finds
it necessary to try to answer question.!
for Mr. Hicks? That ueutleman is here
and competent to answer for himself,
and I dare say his answers would lie as
honest, true and sincere as the World or
its writers. Before closing I would like
to ask this learned critic and scholar,
the editor of the World, to explain what
is meant by the following sentence, used in
his comment on Voter: ''The fact of; the
business is tHis, Dr. Broughtoa as a
Chtlstian man is seeking to Christianize
this community from principle, while
others are doing it for the purpose of ob?

Tolls How Jim Richardson Runs a Be
At the teceut Republican Convention
held in Salem tbo rueetiug was called to
order by Mr. Oakey, who announced da.-.
G. Richardson as chairman, ami put the
question and lie was unauimously elected.
Mr. Richardson took the chair and
forthwith drew from his pocket a paper
which he announced contalucd a li.-.t of
delegates and which bo himself placed iu
nomination and took the vote aud de?
clared elected, ruling that all who should
vote In opposition woro not entitled to a
seat as the meeting was called only for
the purpose of electing delegates. As
soon as voted upon, Chairman Richard?
son declared the work of the meeting com?
pleted and adjourned without any cere?
mony. It was all done in less than' two
minutes time. Now "The Kicker" wants
to kick against such railroading of mat?
ters jot'public interest,but then|lt'H no use.
The condition of the alley between
Seveuth aud Eighth nveuue s. w., west
of Frankl'n road, Is said to be In a des?

Kicker" that the alley is the dtimpim.
place for deail chickens, dead cats, hog

that is calculated to breed disease ami
death in a neighborhood. Where is the
A good story is told of Hishop Ran?
dolph's visit to Nelson county some
months since, when a mountaineer
brought his child for baptism, and sug
gested to the Bishop that ho name the
child"Be-elzebub, as that was a good
"Bible name." The Bisbop smilingly
suggested "Joiin" as a more appropriate
Lame, which was assented to by the
proud father. The Bishop's feeling may
be faintly imagined when, after the
ceremony was over, the fond parent re?
marked: "Doctor I think you made a mis?
take. That's a gal baby."
