key of party etithtic iusin. '1 ho opening by Hon.
John Hrenimn, th eloquent Irish attorney of
Sioux City, the tenijiorary Chairman, abounded
in htronti argument and brilliant sallies of wit,
well sustaining lils reputation as an orator. A
Bigntficant incident during its delivery was the
erieet produced by his reference to lilnlno and
Allison; the name of the former evoked ai
plause. but when referenoo was made, inci--deiitally,
to Senator Allison, that gentleman,
who occupied a prominent seat on tho stage
vug j;ton a perfect ovation. This Biontaueous
outburst showed unmistakably the iopular
strength of Iowa's senior Kenutor within tho
ranks of his party.
There aro no sins hero that Senator Allison
"will have any half-hearted support in Iowa,
llr. lirennan referred to all the principal Issues,
-dividing the parties. He sharply arraigned the
democratic party for inconsistency in resolving
in favor of homo mle for Ireland while denyiug
it to tho people of lakota.
The nomination of Gov. liarrabee for a sec
ond term w as carried with a shout, and in re
sponse to numerous calls he appeared and
made quite an extended address. It was de
voted largely to a review of State affairs, and
compared tho expenses of State government
in Iowa with that of neighboring States. Ho
Said that in the Intt two years there had been
a reduction of about frkM.UJO of outstanding
warrants, and the whole amount would be
wiped out by the first day of July next. He
took strong grounds in favor of the prohibitory
law, and tmid he behoved the man bad not vet
been born who would live to see the repeal of
tho law.
J. A. f. Hull, the present incumbent, was
then renominated by acclamation as Lieuten
ant Governor. Tho contest over the nomina
tion of Supremo Judge was quite, spirited, ns
predicted. Jiu1l;o Adams led. On the nrnt for

was little change until tlio fourth ballot, when

Tho platform, which was read by Georgo I),
rerkins of Sioux City, was well received by the
convention, and parti of it were heartily
cheered, especially the p'.ank which favors tho
abolition of the pass and the recommendation
in regard to a two cent per mile passenger rate
on first class railroads. The temperance plank
also pleased the convention very gieatly, and
tho plank commending Gov. Larrabee for hi
position on the subject of the return of tho
rebel flags.

We deny that tho suffrage is purely a loyal

of tho votes of tho black men in the South is

eloction of a President, a bold and successful
method to make one oto in the South count

IBaltimoro special.
Tho Stato liepublicau Convention met on
Wednesday in this city, and was tbo largest
and most enthusiastic gathering of Kepubli-
cans held in Maryland for many years. Hon.
Lewis 1,. Mct omas proi-ided. A platform was
adopted. It starts out :
llrnolrril. That tho Kepubllcan party of Mary-
land, adhering to the principles affirmed by its
national convention in respect to the rules
governing apiointments to o!hee, declares that
tho reform in the civil service should be
thorough, radical, and complete. To that end
it demands the co-operation of tho legislative
with tho executive department of the Govern
ment, and that Congress shall so legislate that
ritnons, ascertained by proper practical comio
tition, shall admit to public service; that the
tenure of otlice shall I e ma le secure during
good behavior, an 1 that the turner of removal
for cause bhall accompany the i-owcr of apjoint
ment. That the principles thus declared with refer
ence to tho National Government nhall be ap
plied in their full force to tho government of
th State of Maryland and the city of Haltimoro.
That the Presidout of the United States, by
his action in regard to the Foderal appoint
ments iu this State, has given conclusive evi
dence that his professions of devotion to civil
service reform aro hollow and delusive, and
his failure to call tho Federal officeholders to
account for their ojon ami shameless disre
gard of hi own declaration that they should
not engage in efforts to control tho political no
tion of their own pany is a confession of insin
cerity on his part or a proof that his will is
controlled by the Btronger will of tho senior
sonufc.r from" Maryland.
That it Is tho imperative duty of Congress to
pans tho measure known as tho lllair educa
tional bill, or some equivalent provision for
aiding the Kates in removing the Illiteracy
w hich now exist In so many cf them.
Tho platfoim j;oes on to supgi st laws fcr pro
venting discrimination in the public schools
against colored children ; regulating and ad
justing the differenced between labor and capi
tal ; the abolition of the system of enforced to
bacco inspe tion ; the pusngo of such laws as
will cHectually roti-ct American labor and
Ameiican society from the influences of tho
pauper and criminal classes of other countries
and the competition of convict labor at homo;
opposing tho calling of a constitutional conven
tion ut tho prrbcnt time; condemning
the schemes of tho Democratic party
for the destruction of tho Chesapeake
and Ohio Canal and Is removal
an a competitor with railroad monopoly ; favor
ing the pasfldgo of more stringent laws against
the use of money at elections ; for an equitable
svstem of taxation, a revision of tho rovtuuo
laws, a curta in), nt of the exj enses of legisla
tion, aud a revision of the laws regulating pro
cedure in the courts so as to lessen tho expense ;
for uwing tho surplus in the -tat Treasury to
the extinguishment of the Stato debt as far as
iiossli'le, and tho refunding of tho remainder
by offering it iu the market no as to secure tho
low oh t iato of interest; demanding a minority
representation on all commission and official
boards, and the adoption of such election laws
as tdiall guarantee freo suflrago.
Nominations were ma le as follows : Gov
ernor, Walter II. llrooka, of Baltimore ; Comp
troller, K. H. Dixon; Attorney General, Francis
Miller. After tho business of tho convention
was concluded a sensation was caused by the
appearance on the lloor of John K. Cow en, a
prominent lawyer ind leader cf tho re
form movement In the Democratic party.
He wai introduced, nnd in one of
tho strongest ppetches ever listened
to in this city pledged to tha Le
publican ticket the full supiort of the Inde
pendent Democrats. Hi announced that he
was and always should be a Democrat, but that
he wad tired of waiting for the fulfillment of
reform promiios made by "Senator Gorman
and tho ring Democracy" of tho State, W. L.
Marburg, a Democratic lawyer and member of
tho Crescent Club, also addressed the conven
tion and promised to aid in electing the Repub
lican ticket.

Tho dinner is cheap restaurants is
often puzzled by strango orders shouted
by waiters. Tho customary waiter lajs
his cars back and howls an order to the
kitchen, as if for tho purpose of letting
the wholo congregation know what each
member of it intends to eat; then
saunters to tho porthole opening into
the culinary department and converses
with tho cook. If ho would communi
cate the order in a confidential tono
and yell his conversation with the cook
it would please the clients better; but
a waiter on $0 a week cannot afford to
own or at least to exhibit aU the graces
of high society. Like tho stage and
the gypsy camp, tho cheap restaurant
has its peculiar slang and idiom, and it
speaks a language that few of tho pub
lic know. Hero are a few of tho nouns
in its vocabulary, with the definitions

Thcro is no more popular man on tho

ITint, of tho Chicagos, and he needs
v ":i'sfetrw; vis-
no other introduction to base-ball en
thusiasts. "Old Silver" is not hand
some, but is whole-soulod and gonial,
and a back-stop whoso equal remains
to be found. Klint is no record player
ho has no ao to grind and tho man
agement of the Chicago team knows it.
Ono of tho veterans of the Chicago club,
he nevertheless resisted tlio temptation
for fast life that destroyed tho useful
ness of players who, wero iinot for
that one fault, were unorpualod on tho
ball field.
The Force or Hahlt.
It's an awful thing, force of habit.
It's accountable for a great deal of
misery and a great deal of happiness.
Most things arc dono from forco of
habit. Betting, drinking. loving, hat
ing, all become habits, and can't bo got
over. A fellow goes courting, and it's
awfully pleasant. At first it's novelty
and fun, then it becomes habit, and
they think it is love. Tho girl goes
away for a month. Ho pines for a
week, nnd when sho comes back she's
got out of the habit, and he's got into
the habit of courting another girl, and
it's All up.

Special Providence. As a history, tho
Bible is a continuous rocord of God's direct
guidance of His people, From tho time of
the lirst of tho Patriarchs to that of the last
of the Apostlos, we have an unbroken series
of special providtHicas. The innumerable
exhortations which we find in b'cripturo to
put our trust in God oad pray to llim for
guidance and daily Dlessings, aro based unon
this truth of God's special providence, ISuch
exhortations as "Commit thy way unto tho
Lord " -Host in the Lord and wait patiently
for Him," etc., would be meaniugbis with
out tho certain knowledge that God does
direct the affairs of men. We can go to Him
with confidence, seeking light and strength in
each day's need because we havo the assur
ance from Him that all our times aro in His
hand. (Pa. 31: 15). But tho special provi
dence of God is not merely thus proved in
the history and implied in the exhortations to
tiU4t which wo find In tho Bible; it is also
explicitly stated: "A man's heart deviseth his
wy, hut tho Lord dirocteth his steps." "Tho
lot is cast into the lap, tut the wholo dispos
ing thereof is of the Lord." Most emphatic
of all aro tho words of Christ himself on
this point With thoeo of our present lesson
compare Matt K: 2U. (Examiner.)

in Palestine is very great, especially in the
southern part, so that the people are obliged
to resort to tho uso of almost everything that
is capablo of being burnt, in order to procure
the means of warming their houses in winter,
and of preparing their daily food. They not
only cut lov n the shrubs and larger kinds of
graa, but gather tho common withered grass

fields display so rich a profusion. It is from
