TOEKDAY HORNINti, JAHT. 5. ^
Tt?e rnjmrni of Nroall Itiilm.
The prompt payment of small bills is ^
something more than a convenience,
considering Us results, and the real (
distress which the neglect of It oflen i
occasions, raises it to the dignity of a *
virtue. There are muuy trade-mien, J
engaged in extensive business, who j
have to meet large payments, and who 1
depend for litem upon the aggregate of *
small sums. it makes no sort of dif- j
1'ereuce to the payer whether these ^
small sums are paid to-day, or to-inor- ?
row, or next week. It makes a weighty J
ditference to the tradesman, who is ,
f obliged to keep two or three clerks run- I
ning after little bills, and to pay oue 1
per o??nc. a month for the money thai j
is due to him, in a thousand little ,
sums, tbat be should have ior the ask j
ini' that he is keoL out of bv the '
thoughtlessness ?'f customers whom lie
does not wish tooITend by importunity.
The injustice of delaying the payment
of Hinall bills, is not confined to
to the immediate sulIererH. in uaeb
ci^e. The withho'din^of his ju-4t dues
drivvh l?im to I ho same injustice tow
irda liis creditors, and tLieui utfain to
theirs,? so that I lie wr?*njj ^oeei ou repi'HtiiiLc
itself, and NpntadiiiK through a
\vi>cK> community. If A pays II Bean
pay C and so on the whole alphitxrl,
till a few hundred* of dollars, j^nin^
their beneficient ronnd, have discharged
niaoy thouamuU of indebtedness*
Hardly anything that can be done so
easily, and with ho little inconvenience,
re.suitH in ho much relief ?h the prompt
payment of small debts. In fact, there
is no inconvenience in it. It is more
convenient to settle the little bills, at
once, then to have them hanging on for
weeks and months. We speak of course
lo thone who mean to pay their bills at
some time. To them, as well as to those
who are entitled to the money, the
present is the most convenient time.
Nor does a man who means honestly to
pay his debts quite fulfill (hat intention,
when, with no advantage to himself, he
keeps a man waiting niul perhaps sufr

This is n hCHKon when I he principle
which we have endeavored to enforce is j
especially applicable. Tradesmen, me- 1
ohanics and others are now Bending in
their bills ; and we can assure every (
one who has the means to pay them, <
that the sooner ho gets rid of them, the
better it will he for his own comfort, j
Next to not getting into debt, next to |
the practice of that golden rule of expenditure?'4
pay as you go/' is the rule
to pay when the creditor comes.

The lime is close at hand when the
voters of Wheeling will be called on to i
elecL municipal ollicers for the ensuing 1
year. To nine-tenths of our readers (
there is but onejword in llie vocabulary ,
which tljey wuuiti rat her not hear than I
'election"?so thoroughly wearied are 1
they of elections and political excite- *
meuts. Yet there is one word still more
unwelcome?viz: "Taxes." The com- <
ing election affords our citizens an oj>- 1
portuuity to put their city government
into the hands of competent and coir
scieutious 111 Hi), and in mis way to so
improve the conduct of affairs as to 1
make tax bills lighter next year than ,
they have been the year past. We
think ll:e time has come when the in'
turentH of the city ought to l>? looked (
after without regard to partisan politic:'.
It in >1 time when men of all par- '
ti^H mav unite in thin common purpose
without being tied up by their opinions
on general polities which have nothing
iu tiie world todo with the affair** of
our municipality; and unless we very
much mistake this is iho view which
our citizen** generally are inclined to
t??k*? A.n article which appeared in
yeslei daj'Vi /trgi.sfcr shows such a
wholcxomt* realization ot this hict that
we ropy the greater part of it, adding
ooly that we fiud much in it to commend.
Kver hiiit:? the war the parties have
lc. pt up close organization and carried
on constant waitare. In every election,
however local in its character, the result
has t nrned upon the general issues before
tlie country. This condition of
t hinirs terminated with the last election.
Weary of the strife, the people
generally are indisposed to continue ii.
For a time, at least, party organization
will be lefs close; parly men will be I
h?.is zealous and i>:irty questions less I
considered.
Hence, we think Hint in elections like
that ahead, lb? winning ticket must
have some merit aside from its political
designation. Those who participate
will vote in dihcbiirKe of their duty as
riii'/ene, rather ihau in obedience to
their discipline a* partisans. We are
fast approaching I he old condition nl
thints, when, as far as licni elections
were concerned, the result whs determined
l?y considerations of merit rather
than by the main strength ol a numerical
majority. We do not propose to
discm-a the question whether this slate
o! atlwirs ia desirable; we merely pre
sent the fuct as one which cannot he
controverted, and which raunt be considered
by any organization that shall
hereafter put forth a ticket for popular
support.
lu latter-day politics, the rule has
been to Rive tin* nominee the support
< f tho party. Whatever the merits of
the candidate, many, few or none, his
endorsement by the Convention of his
parly hassutliced to secure him its vole.
In the midst of excitement, such as has
prevailed for three or lour years, where
every man felt that he was supporting
his principles rather than his candidate,
this result generally lollowed.
Kven Ihen. to be sure, it did not always
follow without effort, but in some way
or other, the issue has generally been as
stated. In our judgment, the ta^k c f
bringing a whole party up to vote for a
candidate simply because he is the
nominee, will hereafter be het-et with
UUUl llllirn ' V UII < rui Mill
uiakvs an unfortunate choice. The day
when men voted without regard to the ('
merits of their ticket baa gone by. r
Party discipline, the goad and spur aud v
lash, have doubtless been found useful 1
in times past, but the party. Democratic r
or Republican, that shall hereafter rely *
solely upou their ? ilicacy in carrying i]
local elections will, in all probability, c
bitterly regret the adoption of such a ?
policy. i
To make a practical application of t
thene views, we believe that the Demo- t
cratic party of this city, will vote solid J
ouly for "ail unobjectionable ticket, t
With all our majority here, we have no |
right to pte^uiue that we can win as s
easily as heretofore, unless by our nom* h
inationa we assure th? Democrats that J
their party ticket is in itself worthy ot e
their support. The lax-payers of the t
city have a large interest in \\xo matter s
of local government. They furnish the t
supplies that run the machine, if our a
affairs be well administered thev pros- L
per; if badly, the sutler. Whether li
rightly or not, they are going to consult i<
their own interests iu thin election. The t
best men in the tield, possibly with lit- c
tie regard to politics, will receive their t
support. We have no right to lint! fault t
with their purpose. We merely mluion- i
ish the Democracy to respect it. If the i
Democrats nominate a tirst-class ticket, t
not in the hackneyed semie of the term, j
but a ticket of genuine merit, they can c
succeed with as much ease as hereto- i:
ore. If they put forward a bad one, a:
heir success may be hedged about with b
lifHculties, unlesH, indeed, the Kepub- tj
leans surpass thorn in blundering and hi
lominate a worse one. The folly of our S
uemies is not a reliable dependence; c<
o make a victory certain, we would c<
idvise our Democratic friends to look h
veil lo their candidates. b
