J. C. Adams is going iuto the contest for
Auditor to win, and the man who beats him
will have to rise early of mornings.
It seems that the Democrats have become
convinced that it will be no easy matter for
them to carry Marion county at the next
election.
It is about conceded that Dan Lemon will
be the Democratic nominee for Sheriff.
Lemon will give most anybody a very inter
esting race.
Charles Tu tew iler is not loosing any time
in making the canvas for Auditor, lie will
bob up in the convention as a heavy weight
candidate.
Ö. W. Vor his has been making a thor
ough canvass of the county in his race for
sheriff, and will soon give the city a thor
ough overhauliug.
William F. Keay is gaining strength as a
candidate for Recorder. He possesses every
qualification for the office, and would be a
Htrong man on the ticket.
John L. Evans, of the Fourteenth ward is
the only colored member of the County Cen
tral Committee. What ails the colored
brothers of the Third ward.
A prominent Democrat stated to a Leader
reiKirter last week, that the Democrats
would give color to their ticket by nomi-
uating Dr. atson for Coroner.
George Branham will be one of the strong
candidates for sheriff. He was a soldier and
has a strong soldier element at his back.
This a strong point in his favor.
The selection of John Palmer as commit
teeman for precinct No. 1, 14th ward, is
sure to reduce the Democratic majority in
that stronghold. He is a popular man with
all classes.
One of the candidates for a county office
has a very valuable political document saved
ove from the last campaign. It will star
tle the natives, or at least one of them, if it
gets into print.
The Democratic candidates for county of
ficers will get one month the start of the Re
publican nominees. But by judicious en
gineering, the latter will probably come out
ahead on the home stretch.
The country furnishes one Republican
candidate for sheriff in the erson of Oliver
W. Voris. Mr. Voris has been a life long
worker for his party, and will enter the con
vention with a strong following from both
country and city.
The Republicans doubtless put their best
foot foremost iu selecting D, M. Ransdell,
chairman of the committee, and W. (). Pat
terson, secretary. These men are liked by
all classes, and if we are not badly mistaken
will do much towards leading the party to
uccess. They are both men who will sacri
fice time and money for the success of their
party, and can be approached and will con
sult with Republicans concerning party in
terests. The newly-elected Republican County
Central Committee met last Saturday, and
organized by electing D. M. Ransdell chair
man, and Billy Patterson secretary. After
a lengthy session it was decided to hold a
convention on the 12th of August for the
nomination of a county ticket, with the ex
ception of the legislative ticket, the judicial
ticket and the county commissioners. A
second convention is to be held August ly,
for the last-named nominations.
One of our colored citizens sends to the
Leader a lengthy communication, making
unite serious charges against one of the can
didates for a county office. We are always
willing to publish any thing ol interest and
value to the people, but as the statememts in
the document refcrcd to seem to be founded
more upon rumor than on fact, we fear that
its publication would be doing some one an
injustice.

Last Sunday Arthur Spaulding a highly
rcstected young man, and pupil in the
High School was olserved on the street act
ing in a way which clearly indicated that
he had lost control of his mind. He was
taken to the station house and Monday at
his own request was trausfcrcd to the Asv-
lum. The unfortunate voting man is 20
year of age, has always been a close student
and an inveterate reader. 1 his too close ap
plication to Isioks is supitosed to be the
cause of his mei'tal derangement. The phy
siciaus, howcViT, say that his insanity is only
teniHrary, and there is good reason to hoje
that a permanent cure will soon be ttlected
and that he will aain return to home and

A Hartford Mtecia says:
Adolphus Hall, the colored lothairo whose
escapade at lrinity College, an Irishwoman
being said to be concerned, is well remem
be ret I here, now figures as the hero of another
romance given in the Times to-day. Some
time ago the Inst circles in Holyoke were
startled by the report that Emma, the fair
daughter of Hilhan drover, agent of the
Had ley mills and one of the "first citizens,"
had skipped town with a colorod coachman,
for whom she formed a strange infatuation.
It was this same Hall. The parties had been
married in Springfield in secret by a colored
clergyman, as it was found out after the es
capade. The lady is beautiful and accom
plished, and was not out of her teens when
she ran a way with her colored cavalier, and
her father at once employed detectives to
look alter the la iri tivcs. a lew days ago a
letter came from Hall from this city, saying
that the matter could le settled by planking
down a good sum of money t and giving Mr.
f trover an address. A police oiheer came
down from Holyoke found Hall and arrested
him aLd he is now lodgea in the station
house. It has been ascertained that Hall
has a colored wife in this city, so his new
bride cannot remain with the ebony colored
lothario, who will be brought trial for big
amy at the earliest possible moment. His
vsctins friends are reticent as to her wherea
bouts, but she is supposed to be all right and
as well as can le expected.

A Vice Said to ltlval Whisky Irlnking.
Of all tbe blighting habits destructive
both to the physical and immortal part of
man, no other is so remorseless as the appe
tite for opium. Until late years the grasp
once tightened was thought to be impossible
to be broken, and the unfortunate victim of
the poison doomed to a death which carried
with it the tortures of the damned. The
chief feature of the disease is that the desire
for the drug is gratified in secret, and this
fact renders the statistics relative to opium
eaters so difficult to ootain. But an enor
mously increased consumption of the deadly
drug is unerringly attested by the growing
demand. Sentinel reporters have frequently
interviewed the drugdsts of the city in re
gard to the alarming increase, and a fair
presentation of the facts shows an unenvia
ble state of affairs. The writer has lately
talked with Dr. S. B. Collins, residing in La
Porte, and who claim to have discovered an
infallible remedy for the poison that has
stood the crucial test of ten years. During
that time he has been actively engaged in
the special practice of curing opium eaters,
and of course his information must be good.
He says that if the habit is not discouaged
by judicious legislation its fearful effects
will soon be more perceptible than the rav
ages of alcoiiol; and that, compared with
opium, alcohol Is the merest trifle. In
18(9 the importation of opium into the
United States auiounted to 90.097 pounds,
of a gold value of $52.5,802. In 1876
the quantity of crude opium imported was
223,742 pounds, while in 1HS0 it had increased
140 per cent In 1870 we imported 4,000
ounces of morphia, and in 1830 at New York
alone 8,800 ounces were entered. These
itatistics do not take into account the
mount smuggled, which is very large. The
Society of Friends has called attention to the
growing evil. At a meeting lately held at
Providence it was thought proper to appoin
a Committee to inquire into the fats dis
closed, which are surely worthy all reform
organizations. Benevolence can proceed in
no avenue more commendable. The Tem
perance Society working for the suppression
of alcoholic stimulants to the neglect of
pernicious opium eating is misguided. It is
claimed that there are 400.000 opium eaters
in the United States, and that the number is
increasing at the rate of fifteen or twenty
jer cent, annually. Only by the increased
demand for the drug can the growth be es
timated, for it is the disposition of the vic
tim to long conceal the habit. The num
ber of consumers of opium is in some States
from three to six per cant, of the population.
In a majority of instances the atrocious and
insiduous poison is at first prescribed by
physicians. JJut the average patient does
not go longer than six months until he finds
himself within the grasp of a monster. At
first the impressions of the victim are deli
cious. Nothing can exceed the felicity of
an opium dream in the early stages of the
habit
While the fond soul.
Wrapped In Ray visions of unreal bliss,
Still paints the illusive form."
It is a poetical theme, but then comes a
time in the experience of the sufferer when
an awiui change sweeps the spirit of his
dreams. Suicide is then the uppermost
question of thought, but the elements of
cowardice are quickened in the victim's
nature, which adds to the torture until feel
ing may be voiced in the fallen angel's
adieu to Heaven:
"Farewell, happy fields, where joy forever dwells;
iiaii, norrors, nan, ana inou proiounaest neu
Keceive thy sole possessor."
Auretta Hoy t is industriously lecturing in
this part of the State against alcoholism
and every shade of political belief that does
not refuse to tolerate the tippling custom.
l have twice enjoyed the felicity of hearing
her. Though in neither instance was the
audience large, the words of the speaker
were no less earnest, and her honesty is
doubtless equal to her ferver. But the
proposition to prohibit is one to which the
German element, apparently preponderat
ing here, does not take to with any marked
degree of alacrity. The statistics of the
mischievous influence of beer or Bourbon,
however appalling, are marshalled before
iue uriuy.er in vain. An appeiue ior man
is as natural to him as the tongue in which
he chooses to make love to his wife. He
claims it as a part of his life, liberty, and
!L l .,11

the free will protect him.
"The proper study for mankind is man,"
and no department of human knowledge is
more tascinating to me than the beast s
hankering for something that slays. Whether
in an opium compound or Kentucky dis

temperance speaker or opium doctor with
equal interest Jap Turpen.

The Beauty of Jennie Cramer.
When the body of Jennie Cramer was
discovered by Uncle Asa Curtisa, tt;e clam
digger, early on the morning of August 6
last, in the waters of Long Island Sound
that skirt Savin Rock, it was attired in
clothes quite characteristic of the girl. The
dress was of pure white, tastefully trimmed
and cut low at the neck. Her hat was of
the Gainsborough style, turned back from
the forehead and embellished with feathers
and flowers to add to its attractiveness. Her
stockings were of fashionable hue and her
shoes new and of the best make. Around
her neck was a double row of silver beads
and on her fingers were several ring?, one of
them having a gold dollar pendant, on which
were engraved her initials. As seen a few
days before her death in this costume Jennie
looked very attractive, but did not give one
the impression that she was possessed of an
over-abundance of modesty. It could bo
seen at a glance that she was fond of admi
ration and an acquaintance could easily be
formed. The girl was of a striking typo of
beauty Her eyes were black, large and
lustrous, with drooping, dark eyelashes.
Her features were regular, the mouth par
ticularly pretty, with bright red lips and
just a trifling inslination to pout. Her teeth
were regular and wLito. and her skin ot a
remarkable whiteness and purity. This
gave credence to the report that she was an
habitual arsenic eater, but those who knew
her in early childhood say that her skin was
always wnue ana ciear. iier iorm wss wen
rounded and her carriage graceful.

Kluaed lly Victor Hugo.
Six of us Chicagoans went to see Victor
Hugo last bunday night. He receives ov
ery Sunday evening, and always has a doz
on or more of his friends to dinner with
him. "Wo know that the regulation way to
do was to write to the poet's secretary, ask
ing permission to come to pay our respects
to the old gentleman. Hut we had neglect
ed to do that, and somo of us were on the
poim oi leaving l'aris as we wrote our
names on a card with the magic word Chi
cago thereupon, and wended our way to the
Avenue v ictor Hugo we were shown in
i i . 1 .
to me iamiiy parior, a pleasant room in
cream and crimson, with tapestry-hung
walls, a Venetian chandelier, an odd old
clock and a few choice bronzes here and
there. Two visitors were waiting for din
ner to finish, although it was already 9
o'clock. By and by the old poet and his
friends came in. lie is much more gentle
looking than his picture represents him to
be. There is a certain ruggedness, almost
coaraonoes, apparent in all likonesses of him.
This is not natural. The benign old face,
with its crown of white hair, is singularly
tonder and lovely. Iiis secretary presentod
us ''Americana who wished to salute the
poet."
Tho gentlemen of our party shook hands,
said and received a few pleasant words, and
then our turn came.
Little Edith, a tiny maid of eight years,
held up her little hand.
"At her age she may have an embrace,"
said the secretary, and. the old poet kissed
her upon the forehead, giving her his bless
ing. Then a very much excited young
girl standing by,, cried as she saw that em
brace: "Oh, am I too largo to be kissed by
the poet?"
"Yes, yes, mademoiselle," cried the secre
tary, but the lovely old poet said, "No, no,
dear child." Then he took the excited
young girl in his arms and gave her two
good kisses, at which she was highly de
ighted, and said, half crying: "I thank
ou a thousand times. I shall remember
his honor forever."
And tho poet said, with his hand on his
heart:
"No, no; it is I who must thank
and it is I who shall not forget.'
