for being discreet and remarkably
nstrvcl about affairs entrusted to him,

ipjvi' liim an acute attack of lomiuciousui-ss.
Tin* disease did not develop, however,
f?r wane time, until 31 r. Dodge

liim to stop oil' nt his old home in Oscounty,
where he would be among
tin- friends ?)i his boyhood. Jlq did so.
Alwut tin* lirist man lie met James
Crossly, Syracuse. To him Mr, bodgi*
jKiuri'd forth the story of his Western
experience, with all the earnestness ami
energy of the "Ancient .Mariner." Mr.
trust lev was iumi'ii in iinirii, aim hub in
tkliul lie heard from Mr. Dodge:
"In tin1 live w? eks that I have been

Illinois Wisconsin and Michigan,
:?i.| J am very sorry that I shall have to
inukt'u rMlivr discouraging report to the

Imlhuifl, I think, will give Harrison a

there is a general cry for Harrison's

t?? mention Cleveland's name, out of
. ourse there is much enthusiasm for
him in the largo cities. It will be a
close tiling in Indiana, hut I think they
are jetting thehest of us. Illinois, Wisnmniii
and .Michigan are, I am afraid,
|in tty certain to to fur Harrison. When
I w;i* ia Illinois I canvassed a train, and

.Mr. Crossley ventured to inquire the
inuw* of this apparent stampede from
the Democracy. "It is this Free Trade
cry that is doing it all," wailed Mr.
Dodge, nriding:
"Tlio workiagmen have not Protection
' i llic brain, and seem to be thoroughly
i nivi.Minl that if the Democratic party
wins this flirt ion the Mills hill become
a law, ninl tlu* llourishinfc industries
upon which they rely for bread will be
utrieken down. The working people of
tin- country are thoroughly up in arms.
It does not take a wry wise man to find
that out. I would wager if any one
took tin' trip I did, and if ho told the
truth, he would tell you substantially
the same story."
As Mr. Crosslcv is a truthful man, the
Kepuhliann committee feels justified in
fri?|itinj{ his report of what Mr. Dodge

Gjuptok, W. Va., August 20.?The
Republican Judicial convention for this ?r
! district, composed of the counties of '
1 Harbour, Randolph, Preston, Tucker and n*
Taylor, was lie Id here yesterday. The j"
candidates in the Held were Mr. Alston ^
(i. Dayton, of Harbour, and Judge J. T.
Hoke, of Presion. The canvass by these
gentlemen for weeks past hijj been an ^
harnest one, and it was conceded that
both would go into the convention finite .
evenly divided a? t<? the vote. Mr. Dayton
is a young gentleman known as one th
of the most untiring workers in Harbour all
county, not only in his profession of at- tn
torney but also in looking after the in- fr<
terests of the Republican party in that
section. Everyone also acknowledges th
hiH ability to make a good Judge. Like- th
wise Judge Hoke is a gentli'inun of high Pr
character, aud served in the capacity of at
Judge in the old Fifth Judicial <listrict tal
from 1809 to 1873. With these two gen- thi
tlemen in tho field it was not surprising vei

A. S. Winchester, of Randolph, was pri
named tis temporary chairman, and J. .Sti
W. Holt, secretary. The usual committees
were appointed and the conveution
took a recess until 1 ::10 p. m. ,
Each county was represented by its *
full quota of delegates and upon reus- w']
sembfing these, with the numerous spec- litt
tutors, occupied all the available space ilei
in the lurge courtroom. Julius Scuerr, lov
of l'reston, was made permanent chair- lisl
man and M. ft Hull, of ilarltour, pernm* 1
nent secretary. Sei
A contest arose on the question of tes

seconded Dayton's nomination.* N. S. >
Davis and Dr. Lanhaui, of Preston, and Qu
Isaac Baker, of Randolph, seconded the am
nomination of Hoke. I'oi
Most of the speakers were young men, Cai
who put a surprising amount of vim
and eloquence in their speeches. A bal- .
lot being ordered, resulted as follows:
Dayton 29 42-58; Hoke 3?15-58.
Loud calls were made for Mr. Dayton, frai
who came forward none the less daunted j
bccatwe suffering defeat, and who ine
thanked his friends for the efforts made rcti
on his behalf. He also took occasion to em
remind the good friends of Preston that iIr!
it was important that they should rally wj,
to the polls at the coming election each uo,
Republican voter, and not suffer Judge iov,
lloke to bo defeated by their apathy, aw .)0g
was some previous Republican candi- 'jjv
dates. The reminder seemed to be well .,L,(
taken by the Preston delegates. Judge }r0
lloke was then called for. lie thanked on
the convention for the high honor con- .Mlj
ferred, and. while ho aid uot expect to uoj
engage in political speech making this tj1(,
campaign, owing to the character of the tjol
ollice for which nominated, yet he ler
expected to see all the friends he
could in the cornties of tho district
prior to the November election. It may
l?o here remurked that six years ago the 3fo1
counties comprising this judicial circuit
gave a considerable Democratic majority, 6
and Judge Ice, of l'hillippi, was elected. Ho
Since that time the Republicans have i?
steadily gained, until now the district
may be corn ted on as safely Republican */'
from .r)00 to',000 majority. It is there- 1 rt
fore a nomination well worth contesting "ol
for by Republicans.

spectators in the convention. Mr. J. W. ftdi
Mason was in town at liisollice as usual, "
but did uot participate ill the conveti- <lnl
tion. In reply to a question from your J1,"
correspondent, ho said: "Yes, I am a
delegate. I was appointed several weeks 1
ago, long before I was nominated for w,i
judge of the Supreme Court, It is a 0UI
limo honored custom in this State, and wu
othera, that a candidate for a-judicial l#1
position shall not engage'iu political w?
work. I shall carefully observe the con- t,'H
ditions, Of course I shall not surrender rul
any of my political sympathies or con- wo
victions, but I shall not participate in "u
political conventions or meetings. I ov<
trust not to be misunderstood in this tin
position, as I believe it is the right one." wo
Mr. Mason's presence was missed in the ?VI
convention. After repeated cheers for 'or
the successful candidate, also for Mr. 'i0

Lewihto.v, Mb., August L'fl.?Tho secul
public addreBH of Mr. Blaine ou the
e political issues of the campaign was
rtivered in City Hall at Lewiston last
ght. Referring to the President's reliation
message, Mr. Wainasaid, among
her tilings:
I did not happen to have an opportuty
of reading the full text of President
eveliuid's message on the fisheries
bject until this morning, and with all
le respect to the Chief Executive of
e nation, I must say that, considering
the circumstances, it is the most exlordinary
document that ever was sent
im the White House to the Capitol.
In order to bring the Government of
i) Dominion to u just appreciation of
d subject, Congress authorized the
esident, in the spring of 1887, to adopt,
his discretion, a policy of suitable relation,
directing, among other things,
it whenever and so long as American
ssels were deprived of commercial
imIiiih>b in tliu iinrla of f!nnii<lii f!iinn.
m vessels should bo deprived of like
ivileges in the porta of th,e United
ites.
THE CONSTITUTION TIOLATKD.
Hiis, if I may indulge in appropriate .
ng, was a genuine tit-for-tat policy, in '
licli the punishment was admirably
ed to the crime. President Cleveland
::Iined to enforce the policy and ill- ,
red outrage after outran upon our
ling vessels to go unredressed.
Finally, without the consent of the
uate and practically against its prot,
the President organized a com misn
to form a treaty that should settle
points of dispute, lie thus gave
iat was never intended by the Constiion?a
partisan side to an internanal
discussion.

message is the only
e that can now bo honorably
ireued. The Senate rejected the treaty
d declined even to commit it for
lendnient or change with the evident
ijeet of affecting a large class
the voting population throueh
liat is sunposed would he a lukewarm
ilicy on the part of the Administration
a result of his rejection. But the
esident has accepted the alternative
ost manfully and there is no doubt that
Congress will give him the power
ked for, lie Mill not hesitate
carry the iwlicv of retaliation
its utmost limit, lie has, therefore,
ixed the weapon which the 'Senate
ught to use to his injury, and by heboring
them with it has secure'd for

which can result from the rection
of the treaty."

131P0KTANT SLIT DECIDED
Against tin- Cherokee Nation liy Secretary
VUAN.
Washington*, August 20.?Tho Secre- j
tary of the interior has rendered a derision
in the case of Jno. Kesterson
igainst the Cherokee Nation in the
[ndinn Territory for the recovery of certain
improvements forcibly taken from
liim aud sold at auction by the Sheriff of
the nation. It appears that Kesterson is
:i Tennessee Cherokee, and that he went
to the Cherokee Nation upon general invitation
of the Cherokee Nation extended
to the members of the Eastern
band to join them aud become members
jf their tribe; and that pending a decision
of the Cherokee Council upon his
ible improvements upon lauds selected
iccording to custom. His application
for citizenship in the Nation was linallv
ejected aud his improvement* and effects
sold at auction by the Sherifr of
:he Nation and steps taken to have hin)jelf
aud family ejected from the reservaion.
Secretary Vilas in his decision
tolds that when Kesterson's application
ivas rejected his status was thereby
letermincd to be that of a non-resident
>r intruder, and as such the Nation had
10 jurisdiction over his personal propjrty,
and consequently the action of the
Indians in selling his property was unwarranted.

Berlin, August -0.?Berlin newspapers
are silent on the subject of arrests
which are nuuie uouy. 1110 particular
prison in which the arrested parties are
confined is crowded with men and
women charged with the proportion of
Socialist doctrines and the utterance of seditious
cries. The Socialists, however, as
a body are not intimidated. On the contrary,
they continue to circulate what
appears to be a popular fly sheet. This
sheet ends with the words recent uttered
by Liobknecht: "If the workers
wish to obtain their rights let them
unite, ho as to be able to conquer. Without
might there is no right. Courage,
Socialists. Forward."

SAM SMALL SAYS FAREWELI
An Alftclitig Account of Kit l?xp<?r
encc mid Ills awliiI Simple
n^uliiKt the Drink Ilnbit?The
Close thU Morning.
Tho last Sunday and closing day of th
camp meeting was one that, numerical],
speaking, was not so large as that of hu
Sunday, when Sam Jones was preset!
and held the fort, notwithstanding th
weather was all that could be desired
and the attraction was just as great, i
not u little greater. The crowd in at
tendance upon the ground wan variously
oKtimateil at 5,000 to 8,000, but it woult
be hazarding nothing to say there was a
least 5,000 people present. The arrangements
of the railroad company were him
ilar to those of a week ago, ami every
thing was done to prevent accidents
The good order that has attended th<
meeting all through prevailed yesterday
and never in the history of the camp hoi
better order been witnessed than that oi
thin your.
I he young people, of the cauip have
aided the management in making tlu
meeting a success this year, and the)
are sorrv that the time i'h soon at hand
when they will have to return home,
The directors have heeu at their posta
and have done all that mortals could do
to further the success of the meeting ol
1888.
The meeting held in the auditorium
at 8 o'clock wasfulluf iutereat and spiritual
power. Rev. Frank Lynch, of Cameron,
had charge of this meeting, lie in
one of the most promising young men
of the West Virginia Conference, and to
say he i*h a good one is not doing hiui
full justice. He is a Methodist of the
old type, and the meeting in the morn-i
ing was one of the old fashioned kind.
The miuister in charge and the people
all seemed to be filled with the divine
power, and the expression of theircountc
inni/'fn nml <if tlinii- IStm imvn ni'l'ilancn
that the fathers ami mothers of Israel were
all on hoard the old whip /ion, if their
children were not.
The service at 10 210 a. m, was opened
hy a song service by the choir in charge
of Mr. Charles Woodburn, of Cameron,
who has been acting ns musical director
since Mr. Excel 1 departed. He lits in
the place exceedingly well. The singing
of the ilay was equal to* that of last
Sunday, and the members of the Association
are proud of the choir, uudthu.se
who have been aiding to makethe music
a special teature of the meeting.
It was 10:45 when Sam Sinali appeared
on the platform, accompanied by his
wife ami child, and after a pause he led
in prayer, asking divine blessing upon
the speaker, that peace and quietness
night reign upon the ground, that the
preacher might lay aside every sellish
and personal thought, and that the people
might hear, sing and pray with the
understanding and the spirit. He prayed
for his co-laborer.-Sam .Ioiich, that the
Lord might blets liim as he Mood up for
his master in u distant State. During
this prayer it seemed that all the babies
on the camp ground had determined to
cry down the minister, as their voices
could at times be heard above that of the
preacher. The choir sang "Let us Walk
in the Light." The text was part of the
00th and 01st verses of the 20th chapter
of St. Matthew:
"At the last there came two false
witnesses and said, This fellow said."
The sermon was on the life of Christ
ami itslessons. The discourse wis thoroughly
characteristic, but more like the
orthodox sermon than Sam's usually are.
THE AFTKHXOOiN SLUICES.
Sum Small Itclaii'n tin* Story of IfIm Life
ami t'onvui'ftlna.
The Children's meeting at 1 r.'Wp. in.
was largely attended, and the greatest
interest was taken by all who were presents
At the afternoon meeting the large
auditorium was packed to hear Small relate
his experience previous to his having
been converted and taking the pulpit
as a minister. The nudienco was
larger than that of the morning, and
UOlWllIlnUUl?III>K I lie Wl'llUIlT Wlin HUVUl*
al degrees wanner, all were held spellbound
by Small, and, at tiuten duriug
Iuh lalk, many could be scon wecpinu
as lie related his bitter experience, anil
contrasted his life then and the Ufe he
was now living.
After several songs were sang by the
choir Sam Small came upon the stand,
and after prayer bv Rev. Dr. Randolph,
began the story of his life by wiving tiiat
it was said on one occasion that there
came into a distant city a stranger that
attructcd the notice of idlers, lie came
upon a cage of birds, that caused him tfl
take pity on them, lie bought one ol
the cages, and opening the door it
left the cage, and soaring about it caught
sight of its mountain home, and uttered
a note of praise ami disappeared; so he
did, until they had nil gone. . Upon inquiring
why he did this, he said lie was
once a captive, and he to-day was free,
and he took pity upon them and set
them at liberty. So to-day, 1 stand before
you, once a captive, but now free.
To-day 1 am released from a captivity
that had bound me for years, ami 1 am
now free from a bondage greater than
any human slavery on the faee of this
globe.
A glowing tribute was paid to bis
father and mother, who, he said, daily
gave him counsel and advice. He left
homo and passed through a course of
studies and graduated with some honor.
He began the practice of InV, with
friends by the score, to ui<l liim ami assist
liim.* Fondness for society led him
into worldly things. Men high in the
community indulged in social dissipation,
and I wondered why I could not
do the mine. I went out to engage in
them. 1 found it was easy to yield to
tiie temptation. Ah I began to fall 1
found these passions multiplied and
they demanded more of my physical nature,
and I noon found that I wag making
rapid progress toward the maelstrom.
I cotilu Bee Btrong men going
down, hut 1 mid, I havcHtrcngth of will,
pride of character enough to never permit
myself to fall in the plane of degradation
they had fallen into. I do nol
believe that man has ever been born oi
ever will that can indulge in these*pas
sions that cau be saved by human will
power. I could not bind these promise*
in my own nature. After marriage in)
wife * remonstrated with me, but 1 pti)
her off with the suggestion that public
opinion would not allow it, and I stifled
her entreaties with this talk.
The children (jod had given to me ir
their cradles as I looked upon them ha<
no effect on me. I found I was gettinj
less and less reliable, and I found I wsj
the subject of shifting tides of fortune
In all departments of life I was a failure
It wits not from lack of money that I re
signed my position to go to preaching,
u'nu miiki'mr &l.(N)0 a veiir. I made lot
much money. I had ample means fo
pleasure, gambling and all other thing
of this social life. My failures were c
integrity and other vital points. In thi
way I went on until 1 hud to do sonic
thing to obtain relief. My physician
were appeuled to; I took their mediciue,
but I found they could not relievo
me, und I went back to drinking htrouter
than before. More than $1,000 woJ
_ anent in antidotes, but I soon threw
tueiu aside.
My friends thought that a change of
atmosphere might be t>eneticial. I wen t
abroad and spent some time in Paris,
but my recklessness still followed row,
' and 1 wus luin upon a bed of illness.
A prominent .doctor gave m6 personal
i- attention, but he was frank enough to
say that there was nothing known that
would relieve me from that appetite.
We returned home to Atlanta and I bejjun
my course practicing law and editing
a newspaper. I would leave my
home perfectly sober, tell my wife I'd bo
e back in a short time, yet I would wako
up in New York, not lcuowing where C
was or how I got there. Mywifodhl
not know what moment 1 would bit
brought home dead, after a night of debauchery
and uambling. My children
no longer met trie with kisses, but would
run und hide themselves from adruukeu
father.
My wife worn out, went to Judgn
Hammond and asked him to make ono
more effort to save we. The saloon
keepers were warned not to sell me any
more liquor, for fear of the penalties of
the law. The saloon keepers posted
them in their saloons and made them tho
subject of jest. They codtinucd to sell
to uie, and tho saloon keepers are to-day
the Anarchists. They care nothing for
' the law. Tiiey violate tue law in wneei*
' ing every day. They way "if you mako
r laws against us wo won't obey and will
light the officers." You can'stand iu
( Wheeling and see the law violated every
| day. We hud iu Georgia men who weiu
; put there by whisky. Every law
I violated in West Virginia is violated by
the consent of an officer who is a vaga|
bofid or scoundrel. It ib not bo to-day
( in Georgia. Men say, "Small, why are
' you so hard ou them V" 1 suppose in the
nature of things J ought to eulogise
theiu, call them philanthropists, giving
men something to drown their sorrows.
Wouldn't that be a lie? When you
catch me having any love for a bar
keeper, hugging him, then you can say
1 have backslid and am just about at
the door of hell, ready to go through in
about two minutes.
Thseso saloon keepers thought my
' wife was bluffing them, and 1 was a
prominent man, and every time she
went out into the street she would bo
pointed out as the woman who was
prosecuting them, and there would be a
great scandal an over ueorgia. ene employed
a detective to aid her, yet that
did not do any good. They continued
to sell nje the damnable fitnlT and surreptitiously
sent me the liquor for the
money that they know I had, anil 1
would give the last copper I had. TIiuh
i went on until 1 heard of .Sam Jones
preaching at camp meeting in Cartersville,
and I took my children and went
to the meeting. I had to put my children
on the edtfe of the platform and I Bat,
down with the newspaper reporters. 1
did not expect to he interested in Jones.
I had heard that lie was a kind of
mountebank, and that he was a kind of
man that said hard things of people, and
I thought that 1 did not want to hear
him. 1 have found out that the bigger
sinner a fel.'ow is the more orthodox ho
is on the line of prcaching. I was there
as a curiosity seeker, and when he took his
text I concluded in about ten minutes
there was a man preaching. I found
out he was going along my way. lie x
had been there. The sermon set lire to
the audjeuce and there were scores of
penitents Hocked to the altar. 1 sat
thorn rwrfectlv Ktolid. I controlled rav?
self with a master spirit, and sat there
coldly as a marble statute. ] went back
home, and 1 never was in such a condition
when I got to the depot. I sent
my children home and spent the night
in gambling and debauch. I was master
of the situation. 1 never suflered
such a journey in my life. All night
and the next day 1 continued, yet the
liquor 1 drank never gave me any relief
to my brain. About 10 o'clock Tuesday
morning I thought probably it might
he better for me to take a pistol and end
my existence. My wife came after mo
and I left the barroom and went home.
After I got home the whole of my life
was before me. lThe image of my mother
came before me in that moment, but 1
thought there was no salvation for me.
The days of Grace had been sinned
away, and in that condition the words
of my mother came back saying "Hope,
hope," and I concluded that I would
go to Jesus and God for pardon. I went
to him, audi wrestled, my brain being
on fire, for four long hours, and at hut
1 said, "Here, Lord, I give myself nwav,
'tis all I can do." At once my brain bicame
clear. 1 could not understand it.
My first thought was I was paralyzed,
I began to feel my flesh and tound that
; everything was all right, and I realized
: that the Spirit of God had come in, and
1 cried, "1 thank. God I'm saved." I
told my wife 1 was saved and was tjoing
to make her the best husband and my
children the best father the world ever
knew. My wife thought I had gone to
my room and committed suicide, and
when 1 came down stairs and told my
wife sbe thought I had gone mad. The
children prayed that God make papa a
good man. 1 took my children and
! went to a printing house and asked for
some curds, having printed on them
that I would preach to-night. My wife
upon reading tho handbill gave me Mio
evidence that she didn't take any stork
in my departure.
Alter returning homo we had our
1 family altar, and it was the first night
for many years that I had any rest. In
the morning the strong appetite came
hack and burned within me with all
the lire of hell. I would not fool with
antidotes and 1 went back to the room
where I had been the (lay before, and I
began talking to God, laying it all before
