Thursday, August 11, 1881 Wi are in receipt of a communication complaining of the- ruffianly conduct of some Wellington young bloods (young gentlemen, they like to be called) who visited Spencer. one night, lately, and made "Borne howl "with their Bachana lian wit and elevated ideas of propriety and common decency. The writer of the communication gives the names of the parties, but for the sake of their friends and relatives we will not publish them. We are ashamed and sorry to think that any of our young men will so far disregard the dictates, of common decency as to make fools of themselTes and bring disgrace upon the community la which they lire. We dont know that we do just right in withholding .the aames of these hoodlums, but we trust when they go from home again they will try and behave themselTes. The political vultures that areedlting the Republican Journals of Ohio have charged nearly every sin forbidden In the decalogue against Bookwalter. We shall look for them to charge our candidate with -writing the Mon; tetter next" Elyria Con stitution. Just so. But if we were editing a Democratic paper TO never could have the cheek to mention the Horey letter. That was written by a Democrat and put in circulation, by Democrats high in authority, who Touched for its' genuine ness. The editor of the Constitution fairly boiled over and loaded down from -week to week with charges of dishonesty and perjury sufficient to damn the purest man that ever lived, and yet this cham pion "Hypocrisy screechcr has never been known to make a decent apology for the infamous lies he aided In circu lating. The Horey letter lies at the door of the Democratic party and the Constitution was more than a willing party to it, and if it has any regard for decency will hereafter hold its breath on that subject. John W. Bookwalter as a Tempera Or course our Prohiljltlen friends do sot expect to elect the candidate they have nominated for Governor. Indeed, they confess that they are only fighting for a principal which they hope to estab lish some time in the future, and that they only expect to divide the Republi can vote this year, defeat the, party and teach it a lesson which will make its members wiser in the future. For the present it will only have the effect, if any, of electing John W. Bookwalter. The following, from the Springfield Be public, at Book-waiter's home, will show bow . much improvement, as regards temperance legislation and .principles, be is likely to be on Governor Foster : It requires sublimity of cheek for Book Walter's fool friends' to go about whispering In the ears of unwary temperance people that John Is a friend of temperance.' As proof the fact Is brought forward by them that the gin mill under his hotel has been closed for weeks and that no liquor is now sold on the premises. While that chances, by force of circumstance, to be true, it is also true that there is a room on the ground floor, level with the office, designed for a bar, It Is gen erally understood, to be fitted up as such as soon as the elegant fixtures arrive, and that a stock of fancy liquors has been ordered for the same. But a few days ago a ease of Uqnor arrived at the V. 8. express office here directed to Mr. Bookwalter confidential ad viser In the hotel and other enterprises. On the evening of the nomination the most con spicuous object on the center table In Mr. Jiookwslter'a parlors la the hotel, with a rowd of his heavy men present, was a big bottle of liquor, of some kind, seemingly whisky. Perhaps it would be as well to give s a drop on this cant about Bookwalter's grand temperance principles. EDITORIAL COBBESPOX&EXCE. Lakeside r ---- We.were here in time to enjoy a little rT Him Sundav School Assemblv. Coins directly to our temporary- home, and thence to the Auditorium, we beard Bev. Dr. Latimer, of the Boston Uni versity, in the forenoon of Tuesday, Dr. Hedley after dinner, and in the evening the last grand concert by Piof. Case, of Boston, with some very good soloists, chorus singers, and the Orpheus Club Band . from Oberlin. Hiss Luce, the pianist, from Clyde, sang "Old Bobin Oray" very sweetly; tbere was some good comlo singing, a fine dramatic recitation by a lady skilled in acting as -well as in the use of a soprano voice in singing. Last evening we were down at the teach, when the still water was flushed with the rosiest of sunsets. Sitting on a smooth-peeled, water-washed log, with the terraced rock for a footstool, were scores of interested spectators watching . . TH BATHXSS. , The bathhouse proprietors furnish suits for those who do not go provided. Some were boldly striking out, others timidly holding to .the rope or clinging to IKe preserving floats. Even the four-year-old baby girl has her pretty bathing suit and is allowed to sit or paddle In the shallow water. Soma mothers take their little ones in their arms and go In far enough to accustom them' to and sometimes frighten them with the nov elty ot such a big bath tub. Bev. C. N. Pond and family were several of them in the waier at a time, and the Reverend Is a good swimmer and as much at home 'in deep water as he is in a Sunday School Institute. A ndmber of bold aquatics swam long distances and came back at their leisure. Supt. Boss, of the Fremont schools, and his boy Willie are In the water about twice a day, and are so expert that in an ordinary sea either wdold answer for a llfe-preserver. Half a dozen sail boats had lain idly for hours, waiting for a propelling breeze, but were at last all towed in line out of sight by a steamer. A VKXDQBtQ MA CHIMB was In operation in one of the ship channels of Sandnsky Bay as we came oyer, and with the aid of a glass we could for some distance watch its huge upltesvals of sediment that Is all the time washing Into the channel. It is dumped by the same power that lifts it, and when one of these large Open scows Is filled It is towed off by a tag. and emptied upon the natural reef or out of the way of doing harm. The side wheel steamer 44 Jay Cooke,' loaded with ex cursionists, found a deeper channel out of Sandusky than the F arris needs, but came up alongside presently, and salu tations were exchanged between ac quaintances on it and the soldiers on our boat. .:.. The larger lake steamers touch at Harblehead when they cannot run In at Lakeside, and the young lads who come every summer to the family home at Lakeside can, tell you .by Its whistle what ship Is signaling its coming or departure. There are a great many children here, and to many ot them the freedom and out-door pleasures are a ' luxury not possible In their city homes; and it Is a frequent pretty picture to see one or two tired out babies asleep In a hammock under the trees. . tbm cam or bills and the. electric light are among the new things this year, though, of course, there are a great many new cottages and strangers. Faces seen by the elec tric light have a clear jwleness like those la stereoscopic pictures, and the Auditorium Is almost as light at night ss by dsy. Bet. W. S. Fitch la to have charge ot the singing during camp meeting.. Last, evening Prof. Joseph Tingley, so many years Professor of Natural Sciences at the Indiana Aabury University, delivered his last lecture of this course, which was reported in the dailies this morning. Though a larger man, he very much resembles his only brother, Prof. Tingley, of Allegheny College, who has also .made science In the natural. -world his enthusiastic life study. Every college pupil of the other must have recalled his old professor of the laboratory In the simplicity and clearness' of the lecturer last evenfng. His excellent use of language is also alike characteristic. Our Professor Tingley used to say, "Give your answers as nearly as possible In ' the language of Hid text-book; yon can hardly improve on that, and will become habituated to correct and concise expression." Dr. Hedley, assisted by Prof. Tingley, gave a hundred or more views, thrown on a screen by a calcium light, as the final entertainment of the Sabbath School Assembly. : ; ' '' Heavy express wagons are rumblln g through these stony aisles called streets between the rows of cottages, all day, and are an accompaniment to all our dreams late and early. . aowrao . ' . : is very much Indulged, and there are at all times, when it would be at all pleas ant, plenty' of these frail barks skim ming the water. A gentleman and wife and children ' from Detroit, who have rooms In the bouse of our towns man, Mr. Shubal Smith, last Saturday were out rowing and the lake became so rough that they were carried far out, and gave up ever getting to land alive, when a sail vessel picked them up, took them aboard and brought them grate fully ashore. . : " . ' m rzKcrauiti. This morning we drove through the encampment to the south, striking the ridge, at a little distance, leading across the peninsula toward Sandusky. The weather was extremely sultry, the sky perfectly clear, but through these groves of oak and butternut the lake breezes came delightfully cool. The scanty soil covering the limestone rock furnishes slight sustenance for anything very large in the way of timber, and the ex panse of open prairie which we present. ly : crossed was . covered ' with a low growth of what resembled the penny royal plant; except in the groves or young trees, where grass Invites the herds of cattle that roam this wide pas ture. Some of it Is fenced, and near the timbered portions of the peninsula peach orchards and vineyards abound, and corn fields, potato and vegetable gar dens Indicate the vicinity of a dwelling, and In quiet retreats some handsome and many more unpretentious rural homes are found. We came out at last to a charming view of the lake, Johnson's Island to the right and San dusky City in full view on the opposite shore. The steamer R. B. Hayes had been lying near shore and steamed away Into the water, which was white ss silver and of indescribable bright ness under the clear shining of a cloud less sky. The 14th Regiment O. N. G., from Mt. Vernon and vicinity, and the 17th Regiment, from Delaware, Colum bus and towns between, are encamped, one on the prairie back of Lakeside and the other at Point Marblehead, a mile above here, both "of which camps we passed In our morning drive. The in flexibility of camp regulations Is illus trated In the pitching of the tents out in the open field under the burning sua In regular lines, instead of scattering them among the groves all.about, where shade would be abundant. These blue-coated warriors appear to have been recruited from among college boys and clerks, though borne are bronsed enough to have come from the harvest fields. On Friday evening the 14th Regiment was reviewed by Gov. Foster. It Is the fullest regiment in the State, and pre sents a fine appearance. On Saturday afternoon members of the Governor's Staff reviewed the 17th Regiment on the same ground.' This regiment attended service 1c the Auditorium Sunday morn ing, seats being reserved for them. We visited their camp Saturday, when they were preparing rations, and saw the German cook who was preparing the officers' supper, which constated of sev eral courses, and seemed good enough to eat even In camp. -. - Driving into the road leading along the limestone quarries of Point Marble- head, we called on Cspt. Clemmens, the presiding officer of the Life Saying Station, who appeared kindly solicitous to please visitors in explaining the uses and working of the abundant apparatus for saving life and property on this most dangerous point for passing ships. North-east winds have a long unbroken sweep,' and the coast Is dangerously rocky. They had only yesterday brought in the body of the mariner who trifled with his comrade in an open boat, drowned himself and left his fel low to battle with the waves for hours alone. If It is convenient the next time the life saving crew practice we intend to go down and see the shooting of the cannon ball that carries 700 yards of line over a ship's mast, aod the running out of the life boat on Its car, with all the rest of the practice of these rescaers, who live near by and can gather at a signal from their work la the quarries. The roads near them are, like. those of Sandusky, macadamized with limestone, white as a plastered wall, and become pulverized In a little time into the sharpest of dust. Many soldiers were among the visitors and bathers 'at the Signal Station, and as all were asked to register It was easy to see that every day brings tourists from very distant points, as well as all the country of the lakes. We hare no means of knowing the population of at present, but it Is constantly receiving accessions, though every departing boat takes its departing crowds. Larger numbers will continue to arrive for tea , or twelve dsys to come, when the throng will culminate on the last Sun day of camp meeting and the exodus will begin again. Coming through this small city of cottages from our drive this morning, right in a thickly settled neighborhood and beside the track of the carriage wheels, a wriggling serpent, among the bushes, was seen, and the Senior Editor and bis host armed themselves with stones (these being the only available means of attack or defense and very soon laid out bis anakeshlp, a portly specimen four feet long and five and a half inches in circumference, of the blowsnake species. . Not being able Ja see for ourseLf that he was not a rattle snake and capable of harming the horse In bis efforts to defend himself, we com passionately determined to get that faithful creature out of the way if neces sary. A rattlesnake, a blue-racer or a blowsnake is seen just often enough to break the monotony say two or three times a year. These rockeries that abound, picturesquely covered with woodbine and wild grape, wQl furnish admirable biding places for man's an cient enemy, and may-be are appro priate la the camp-ground, which some what resembles the Garden of Eden, if one were to Judge by the numbers who flock here, temporarily reversing the proclamation that man should haye hts bread only by the sweat of his brow. But these summer idlers who are pic tured In groups in the parks, swing listlessly in hammocks, dream upon the ground under the trees, lounge or read In balcony or verandah, or float In the little boats after sundown, are all suffer ing enough these Intensely hot days, and many of them could doubtless make themselves more comfortable at home. As this Is the day CAHPMSJC1UIO OFXKB, the demand for board and rooms in creases with each boat's arrival. Last evening we went down to the engine bouse where the electricity is generated for illuminating purposes. The en gineer in charge was a young man, a son of Roland Thatcher, deceased, of Fremont, who formerly lived In Litch field. Visitors who wear watches are enjoined to keep at a safe distance if they do not wish their time-pleoes to become magnetized and worthless. The engine house Is on the beach east of Lske Park, some distance - from .the Auditorium. The light Is subject to sudden flashes, like a gleam of sheet lightning. Its steadiness depending upon the smooth, even running of the engine Professor Thompson, author of the the system of drawing used as a text book In onion schools, and Professor of Drawing and Industrial Art In Purdue Unlverssty, Indiana, gave, last evening. a final entertainment, "free to the pub lic," to a large audience. The history and illustrations of comlo art In all ages was very Instructive and enter taining, and some of the principles or rules of proportlo n were clearly given, and such as should be taught tn all the graded schools. ' ' , ' THB VOCaTKBHTH XXOIlf KT have just marched into Lake Park and have gone through a parade drill, stacked arms; and then were allowed to. scatter for refreshments, I should judge, by the number who crowded the restaurants and waited their torn for lemonade and loe water. Families who own cottages and live In them every summer establish neighborly relations, or, at least,' the children do, and so it happens that a bright little fellow of seven years, who played with the box and girl of this cottage last summer and before Is here this season only as a' sweet memory. A large painting of him hangs on the wall of the next door summer home, and the tearful mother, childless and desolate, hears the laugh ter of happy children at their play with all the keenness of a grief counted yet only by weeks. . It Is nearlng the boar of sunset and everybody who enjoys the water at this pleasantest time of day will be beside It, In it, or on It, and we Join the shift ing throng Interested In both human and other nature, seeing much to admire In both and little to condemn. However, the senseless vanity that leads pretty young girls to mar their freshness and beauty by appearing In velvet and satin these sweltering days, when every de vice known Is necessary. In preserving life and health by keeping cool. Is ex plainable only by the supposition that they expected chilly weather and have no more comfortable attire with them. Perhaps,' after all, they should not be blamed, for, since commencing this let ter, the weather has become so cool that we are glad of every warm wrap wbloh seemed so needless a precaution two days sgo. . " H. H. H. 1 Great Attractions at the Coming Fair. The officers of the' Wellington Agricul tural Society have nearly closed a con tract with experienced parties to make a balloon ascension on one of the days of the Fair. In all probability before this item goes to press the contract wOl be completed for one of the best entertain ments ever witnessed in this county. The -Fire Company propose to be on hand, in uniform, and show the people how well thry manage the little engine that has already been so afflolent In put ting out the many fires that have oc curred within their reach since they or ganized. From the many inquiries in regard to the walk, trot and running race, we judge considerable fun will be hsd in that direction ; so that, from all appearances, the indications are that this will be a Fair that will be long re membered by all who attend. Let none stsv awsv. but all come and help sus tain the reDUtation which the Wellington Agricultural Society has .at home and abroad.
