The National Republican Convention meets at' Chicago to-day, tbe 3d inat Rmikk appears to be the favorite with Lincoln for second place. David Okkt, E q , visited friends in Woodafield last week. He reported tbal work on tbe Ohio Valley Railroad would be commenced at different points imme diatelv. Eastern Ohio should have represen tation among the delegates at-large to the Democratic National Convention, and no man is better fitted for the posi tion than Gen. A J. Warner. Bellaire Democrat. Mischief makers have reported along the river that tbe Pennsylvania Company bad bought the road on the West Vs. aide and would now drop the road on the Obio side. Not one word of truth in any of that stuff. ' Standard Oil candidates are on the down grade with tbe people and going at a fearful rate too. Their efforts to purobrss adherents, where tbey have been successful, have bec mfrr- who, under ordinary circumstances, know just about enough to control their own votes if not interfered with too much They are a marketable commodity that an hon est man will fluly refuse to take stock in, politically or otherwise. But they are as good as their purchasers. The condition of tbe wool market is not calculated to cause wool growers to rejoice. The price q-ioted in adjoining counties is about thirty cents per pound. The reduction or the wool tariff, voted by a Republican Congress, has badly crippled the wool interest. The manu fec'urera of woolen goods, the men who paid to have the duty taken off, are gatb ering a rich harvest from the producers and oonsiimets Their profits eat both ways in the reduced price of wool and tbe increased price of manufactured woolen goods. A man who voluntarily enumerates his p lineal m'take in a published Card and advances ftivolous excuses to the people for having made them, will not suit the people f this District for a sent in Congie a Such a man ia Henry Bobl, of Marietta Take for exanyile one of his reasons lor voting aga'nM Pendleton for re-election to the Senate : Because he voted to confirm Matthlws aa U.

The following letter wss read at the National Convention of Wool Growers held at Chicago on the 19th ins. : House of Rfpbeentative ) Washington May 10 188:4 J W. Cowden, Esq , Secretary Ohio Wool ' Grwers' Association, Quaker City, Ohio: Mi Dear sib : I ueg to aoknowttttge the leceipt of your letter of the 6lu inst., and to express my sincere regret tbat my duties in Congress will not permit me to attend tbe National Convention of tbe Wool Growers' Association to be eld at Chicago tbe 19 h inst. I desire, however, to say tbat I am in fulf sympa thy with the objeet of the meeting, as I belive it due to tbe wool growers tbat tbta important branch ol tbe great agri cultural intereata ot the country, which alone can be in any degree benefitted by protective dotiea, aboold have the pro tection asked for it. I am, moreover, one of those who believe, generally, in a tariff so adjusted aa to encourage pro. dc dive industries at home. Very truly youra, A. J..Wabnbb. JUS i Thj Carnbrtlee 4tffmfan entered upon Ha 53.I year last Week, li in bright and reliably Dettucrttic. The Democ racy of G uernsev have fought many der. perate bank s under the leadership of the Jeff., and are already in line for the con test this vear. Wool Grower' Resolutions. The following rr solutions were passed nt the National Mas Meeting of the Wool Growers of the United States, held at Chicago last week Twenty one Stale" and Territoriea were represented. Ohio was represented by fifty delegates and Pennsylvania bv 38 The Committee on Resolntions made its report, which after speaking of the injustice inflicted by the act of Uongreaa of Match. 1883, went on to declare : F rat That by the census returns of 1880 there were 1 020 000 flockmasteia and there is no Sae where tbe industry ia not pursued Second That the product of wool for the year 1883 reached 320,000,000 ! ,nre performances the posters announc pounds, and its value more than 8100 -! e(1 matinee. I went to the theater at 2 000.000, and that the value of mutton ! o'clock that afternoon and found my resulting from sheep slaughter for food I company akvlarking hehind the curt sin wss over t50.000.000 ! in their every day suits. 1 looked out in Third Tbat sheep husbandry is an important lector in the prosperity o other agricultural pursuits, because of the utility of sheep in fertilising the sil and replenishing exhausted lands, so that, if abandoned or seriously dimin ished, onr entire system of agriculture will be embarrasasd, our capac ty for the production of meats, breadstuff and other articles required by our civil cation will be ter.ously diminished and onr great prosperity impaired. - We cannot afford, ae a Nation, to endanger a aprw agricultural pnrnit which add each year directly $15 000,100 to the Nation's wealth, and bavins invested in real estate not less than 85,000.000 000, and which contribute indirectly ao extensively to the Nation s prosperity. Fourth That the act of 1883, reduc ing the duties on foreign wools, has se riously ii jured, and if continued will in tbe fu'nra diminish, if it does not suh. stanttally des'roy.the production of wool and sheep in the United S ate, and Ibis assertion we sustsin by these facta. The repoit then goes on to chow iha' the clip of 1883 abowed a loa of over 9 s6,000 -000 to wool growers compared to 1882, and predicta a much greater loaa for 1884, and aays the c'imate and condi tions in Australia will compel American producers to abandon sheep raising for other pursuit. It is, therefore, Resolved. Tbat we will organist aa wool growers and shetp breeders, and co-operate, by means of onr National Association, to be aided by State and County Associations, and in thia way and hv all other legitimate method will do all in onr power to restore the wool tariff of 1867, or its equivalent, on wools and woolens and cause to be repealed the on just, on wise and unequal legislation of 1483, reducing the duties on wools and woolene. Resolved, That in doing tbia we will, without reference to former political af filiation", recognise our friends whenever and wherever we find them, and at the polls will Hustain only snch men and snch party organisations as are in favor of protecting and encouraging and sustain ing the sheep husbandry in these UVred . States, by restoring the wool tariff of 1867, or its equivalent. Resolved That we favor a wise and comprehensive ayttem of economics! legislation, best calculated to foster and develop all Aemrican industries that can be profitably pursued by our people, whereby employment can be given to all tbe lahoring classes, not at the prices paid tbe laboring poor of foreign na tions, but at uch wages as will secure educational, religious and social privile gea, and such physical comforts as free men of tbia ftee nation are entitled to, and ought to enjoy. Retolved, Thai we repudiate the doc trine ot free trade aa a fallacious and im practicable theory, sustained largely by the money of foreign capitalists, who desire the control of our markets for the sale and consumption ot goods produc ed where labor is cheap and money abundant, and we regard as unworthy respectful consideration tbe theory o' those manufacturers who claim that raw mateiial shall be free while their fabrics are protected We ask with emphasis why the labor required to produce wool ia leas worthy of protection than the la bor at the spindle and loom where the fabrics of wool are produced Resolved, That the long continued and systematic undervaluation of imported wool, resulting, aa it does, in the loss of much revenue to the Government, and robbing the Americas wool grower of the protection sought to be conferred bv the tariff, and which the Secretary of the Treasury declares will continue under tbe existing lawa, demands and should receive tbe immediate attention of Con gtess The platform waa adopted with tbe addition of the following words to tie second resolution : "And that we will not support sny party or candidate until it or he bis dearly defined its or his po sition in (avor of the restoration of said tariff." A committee of five was sp pointed to draft an address to the wool growers of the United Ststes. New Stock Law. The amended Stock law is sn impor tant one, we give below the text of the hill as paused the legislature last winter: Section 1. Be it enacted by the Gener al Aiumblj of the State of Ohio.

Columbus Time. 2Sth n't AN AUDIENCE OF ONE. The Reception Columbus Once Ten tiered to Joe Emmet. The engagement of Joe Emmet at Omstock's Opera House to-night, re- I vives a story he told to a Times reporter, rela'ive to a reminiscence, tbe data of which occurred at the above theater, in Ibis city some years ago. Said Emmet : "Tbe smallest andieence I ever had was la Columbus, Ohio. The manager bad been trying to introduce matineea, hut with not much success Joe Jefferson, Dr-nman Thompson and s une of the big atTS Dad ?nnp through the mill, and the audience had been so small that they had ' hied' ,nf reUd ,n take tbe gate Tbe money had been returned at the box of- i n5 n" " disappointed ticket buyers had departed determined never agafn to pa?roni? a ma'inee in Columbus. The afternoon business wss at its lowest ebb when I struck the town. After two or be auditorium. There was just one man in tbe t beater. He sat clear hack in the parquette. It was as much as 1 could do to outline him in tbe darkness. I went to the ticket office. 'Did that man pav for hia ticket ?' I asked. 'Yes, 50 cents,' the treasurer replied. 'Tbe man ager told me to return him his money and close the theater. N i, you won't,' I said. 'I ve never disappointed an au dience when I'm sober, and I don't pro pose to do so now. We'll play for him.' I went Into the parquette, introduced myself to the man, and thanked him for bis attendance. I told him (bat, as he bad thought enough of me to come and see me and pay 50 centa for the privi lege, he should have as good a perlorm ance as though the bouse was packed. I went hehind the curtain and requested the company to dress. 'Great Caesir ! Joe,' one of them said, 'you ain't a going o play to that one man, are you ?' Y s, I am,' I replied 'He's paid his money, and be shall have his money's worth.' 'Oh, the devil !' hroke in an tber mem ber of the company, 'I'll pay hia fifty cents and you let him go ' I told them tbat tbe performance must go on as usual, and I warned ach of them 'hat any attempt to guy tbe audience or any failure to play a part in full would be tbe signal for a discharge. "Well, tbe orchestra played an over ture and the curtain arose. I walked down 1 1 the footlights. I invited the audience to come forward and take a seat, where be could aee and be aeen. He thanked me and settled bimjelf in tbe front row. I suggested tbat a little generous applause thrown in where he thought t ie act-ore deserved it would serve to inspirit them and warm them to their work. He seemed to appreciate the situation and agreed to give us all he encouragement that he thought we deserved. Tbe performance began. I don't think I ever played better. I threw myself heart and soul into the character, and aang the 'Lullaby' so tenderly that fie entire audience was in tears. He called for an enooie. I told him that we rarely gave ao encore, but as this was an extraordinary occasion he should have one. He applauded liberally at times where tbe applause was deceived, and again failed to applaud where ap plause was deserve I. At such times I called h s attention to the omission, and asked whether, on reflection, he did not really think that he bad made a mistake. A hint was sufficient. He would clap hia banda aa though perfectly enchanted aad shoat 'Bravo J like an Italian over Salvini. The company paid no atten tion to him. but went on with the per formance as regular as clock work. Be tween acts, however, one or two of tbem evinced a disposition to go out into the aulltorium and mingle with tbe audi ence. I set my face against it and tbev refrained. At the close of tbe second act Manager C mslock entered the theater. He had been out for a walk He seemed dumfounded at the house brilliantly lighted and the orchestra playing soberly to one man. But he was more astonished when the curtain arose and the performance was resumed with aa much unconcern as though there were a thousand dollars in the bouse. Rut he had an eye to business. He sent word to the newspaper reporters, and half a d zen of them, including those of the old Statesman and Journal, ar rived in time for the last act. No actor ever received better newspaper criticisms. Some of tbem were over a column long It turned out that the audience was the owner of a copper mine in Michigan, and very wealthy. On tbe following mgbt be gave the whole company a ban quel at lbs Nell House. He entertained os aa handsomely as we had entertained him, and we parted with mutual regiets Just a year afterward I announced an other matinee at Columbus I was well advertised, and tbe house was packed to suffocation. I look in over 81 200 Mv sense of duty t tbat one man, who had invested the small sum of half a dollar, bael returned me a golden bains'." tW Andre w Jackson, in- bis farewell address to the American people, said : "Relv upon it, the design to collect an extravagant revenue, and to burden you with taxes beyond the economical wants of the government is not yet abandoned The various interests which have com bined together to impose a tariff and to produce an oveifltwing treasury are too strong, and bave to much at stake, to surrender the contest. Tbe corporations and wealthy individuals who are engage! in large manufacturing eatablisbments desire a high tariff to increase t lit i- gains Designing politicians will suppoit it to conciliate their favor and to obtain tbe means of profuse expenditure for tbe purpose of purchasing influence in other quarters." Tbese words were spoken forty-four veara ago, and they are as true to-day as then. A Kemarkable Escape. Mrs. Mary A. Dailer, of Tuukban nock, Pa., was ifflc ed for aix years with Asthma and Bronchitis, during which time tbe best physicians could give no relief Her lite was despaired of, until in last October ahe procured a Rot le of Dr. K ng'a New Discovery, when immediate re ief wss felt, and by continuing its use for a short time she was completely cured, gaining in flesh 50 lbs. in a few months.

According to the return made on blanks issued to tbe guards in the different shops in tbe peni tentiary there are at least three hundred men in tbe institution who can not read, in the state shop alone there are fifty four thus ignorant, ont of a total of seventy-five. All of tbeae will be en titled to schooling under tbe present plan. The per cent of tkis illiteracy is THE DEMOCRATIC CHOICE. The Weight of Preference Entirely for Samuel J. Tilden. Washington, May 28. Even in tbe midst of all ibe talk about tbe Republi can Convention there can be heard on all aides the declaration that Tilden mast be the Democratic nominee A telegram in the Post of to. day purporting to come from New York, s a'ed that Tilden bad declared himself in favor of the nomina tion ot Payne, but tbe dispatch seems to have been without foundation. Mr Springer, of Illinois, said to the New Journal correspondent this evening that tbe' editorial in the New York Sun upon which tbe alleged dispatch was based was a stab at Payne, acd that he did not believe a word in the whole article. He bad no doubt but Mr. Tilden's health was much better now than it was in 1876. He saw him on the 4th of last March, and his health was aa good then as in 1876, and from all he could learn it was better now than then. "Mr Tilden," continued Mr. Springer, "takes the best possible care of himsell. A doctor lives in his hone, and every mouthful he eats is under rule, prescrib ed by the doctor. He is a man of regu far habits, consequen I v there ia not much Chance for an accident." "Wi'l he accept tbe nomination?" queried the reporter. "Certainly he will, replied Mr Spring, er. "No man receiving a nomination aa he will at Chicago can decline Yes, sir. he will accept and he elected, too." "Will tbe Illinois delegation support him in the Convention ?" "Yes, sir, solidly. No man can get tbe Illinois delegation over him." The only prominent Democrat known of here who says he would not support Tilden is Wade Hampton. Since 1876, when Hampton was made Governor ot his State and her electoral vote was counted for Hayes, be and Tilden have not been on speaking terms. One of the most sensible ideas preva lent among the Democratic Congress men just now is a disposition to defer to 'he wishes and counsels of tbe Democrats of doubtful States Representative Nich oils, of Georg-a, sirs: "I would find but the man whom the delegates from New York. New Jersey and Connecticut want, aad I would take that man. Tbese are the States that will elect tbe President, and what we want is a candidate who can carry them." Tbe Democrats who vo'ed against the Morrison bill all favor this policy of yielding to the wishes of tbe doubtful Ststes, and some who vtted for that measure take this view. There is a ques tion in many minds, however, as to the advisability of nominating the whole or the old ticket Mr. Biaine remarked to a friend yesterday tbat he hoped Tilden and Hendricka would be the opposition ticket, but be waa almost afraid the Dem ocrats would reognisi the wisdom of potting some such man as John Carlisle in the second place. A Poet's Idea. Cleveland Plaindealer. Joaquin Miller, writing from Wash ington, aays that Arthur and Lincoln ill be the Republic n candid tea for President and Vice President, and adds : "As for tbe Democratic ticket, I only repeat, and brn fly but most emphatically, that it will be tbe 'old ticket,' Tilden and Hendricks. And this ticket will not only be nominated hut it will be elected as sore as Mr. Tilden accepts Why am I so certain ? Because I know the people of this republic. I am of them, with tbem and know tbem well. And I know tbat they have a deep seated conviction in their hearts that there waa a great wrong; and tbey want to have a band in tbe rounding up of things, in tbe right ing up of things in the great equity court of time. This feeling tbat Haves was not elected President and that Tilden was, is not confined to any one party at all. And It is this feeling that will put Tilden in the White House if be will per mit it." Miller must have bad Judge Jere Black's closing remarks before the Elec toral Commission wben he wrote the above. Judge Black said : "Though the mills of tbe gods grind slowly, yet they grind exceedingly small ' The time will come when the American people will consider it the greatest privilege that can be accorded them to right the wrong this commission is about to commit, and should he live, Sam lei J. Tilden will be carried to tbe Wbite House as no other President ever has been " South Africa. London, May 28.

Tbe Berlin papers continue their bit ter attacks upon England apropos of the action of the Earl of Derby and Etrl G anville in ignoring Garman rights in tbe Angra Pequena country. GERMANY INSULTED. The Reichshote aaya that the German government will never permit itself to be influenced by the bravado of such impatient, unprincipled statesmen as now conducted the business of Englsnd. The insulted national feeling of Ger many will, the paper says, rouse itself and tell tbe English nation of its dis pleasure at tbe narrow, jealous measure which is plainly stampeel aa of a ho tile character. Tbe other papers comment on the subject in tbe same tone, and ar gae that England is jealous of all colo nial extension xcepting its-own. Remember the Widow. Inter Ocean. E'ery man should, while in health, make his will. If be has a wife wbo during all bis years, bss aided in amas sing tbe pn-psrty, tbe will aboull tena ciously protect her interest. When a man deliberately in his will ignores the equal rights of bis wife to every dollar of his estate be offends justice. Many a man has so worded his will as to leave on record a stins, just because it violated this rule of justice. The law by which a widow ceases to enj y tbe ptopertv rights she had during her husband's lifetime, in many ot tbe states, is bar barous and unjust. Tbe wool growers of Ohio might sue Converse and other democrats in the bouse from this state for breach of promise Dayton Journal. And imprison tbe Republican party for grand larceny. It was a republican Congress that did tbe manifest injustice of discriminsting against the wool growers Delaware Heruld. Already Forgotten. Newark Advocate .
