GALLIPOLIS, FEB. 'IT, 1876.
Come Home to Roost.
The following appeared in trr BuT
letinot January 26th:
The storthat the Clerk of the
-House Committee of Ways and
Varans had a child named after John
Wilkes Booth has met with the same
fate that the majority of Republican
stories meet It i3 a lie. The Clerk
has a child, and his name is John
Wilkes, ,but he was so named in
honor or his father's brother, who
was named after the great English
Commonor, John Wilkes.
That is., very emphatic, neverthe
less there is truth in the story.
First, we quote from the Washi
ton Tribune, the only Democd
paper published at the seat of
. eminent. We coov from its iasm
"As a friend and defender of
Morrison, and a well-wisher of the
Democratic party whenever it acts
with decency, we join the New York
Tribune in demanding the removal
of this admirer of assassins from the
Clerkship of the principal committee
of the Democratic House. Such
beastly barbarism as this Hamble
ton has been guilty of should not be
tolerated in a cleaner of spittoons in
a bar-room. Occupying a representa
tive position as he does, his retention
would cost the Democratic party half
a million of votes. Just such a
thing as this would turn the National
election. We assure the Chairman
of the Ways and Means Committee
that this matter shall not be allowed
to rest until he takes action in the
case. We have proofs, and shall pre
sent them, that this Clerk is guilty
of the infamy charged."
But here is the clincher. It is
from Mr. Morrison himself:
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
Feb. 10, 1876.
Dr. J. P. Hambleton, Clerk Ways
. - and Mean Committee:
Sir: The charge- so often made,
aud as often denied by you that you
had named a sou after the assassin
of Mr. Lincoln, I have until now
wholly disbelieved. Recent develop
ments which show your son to have
been named or recognized by the
name of John W. B. Hambleton give
at least a semblance of truth to the
charge. With the slightest appear
ance of the truth of such a charge, I
have but one duty to perform, that is
to accept your resignation, offered
some time ago, which I do hereby.

digest of the speech :
"The speech, as a whole, is in har

measures that will, as soon as prac

Editor Gallipolis Journal: I
have just received a letter' from Mo

the interest of the great Temper

old friends of Gallipolis and vicinity
would like to hear from her, I copy

Jan. 18, 1876.
Mr Dear Brother: I at length
find the time to write you. I sent
you out a line from Liverpool, tell
ing of my safe arrival there. I first
arrived at Liverpool in the City of
Brooklyn, January 9th, and was cor
dially received. The Southport .Dai
ly News of Jan. 12th, says: "We
have already informed our readers
that Mother Stewart, the leader of
the 'Women s Temperance Crusade
in America, was about to pay a visit
to this country, and many of the
American paper noticing her inten
tions, have written in the warmest
terms of hep work in that country, and
heartily commended her to the care
of temperance people here. We are
glad to say she arrived safely in the
City of Brooklyn on Saturday even
ing, and was welcomed by prominent
Good Templars, who were taken out
bv the tender to meet her. Sue has
been staving: at the house of the
Chief of the Order in Lancashire,
John B. Collings, Esq., of Liverpool,
and on Monday evening had a pub
lic reception given to her by the lead
ing Temperance reformers of the city
at Lawrence Hotel.
After tea, the Chair was taken by
John B. Collings, Esq., and the fol
lowing resolution was seconded by N.
Resolved, That this social gather
ing, representing the Good Templars
of Lancashire, tender to Mother
Stewart a cordial welcome on her ar
rival in this country, and desire to
express its hearty thanks to Al
mighty God for the glorious work
she has been the means of accoin
plishing in America, in connection
with the Women's Temperance cause.
Mother Stewart then replied in
thrilling speech, givingan acconntof
the work in America full of inter
esting incidents, showing that her
whole heart is in it, and speaking at
the same time in such a modest and
lady-like manner, as to gain the sym
pathyof everyone present At this
point,. Mr. W. H. Newett moved, and
it was seconded and supported and
carried unanimously, that we desire
to thank our American Temperance
Brethren for the hearty greetings
sent to us by Mother Stewart, and
assuring her of our conviction that
she will be cordially welcomed by the
earnest temperance meu and women
of every town she may visit in thi
country, and hope she ma' be made
the means of giving a fresh impetus
to our great good work, and of fur
ther strengthening the fraternal
bonds already existing between the
temperance ' people of both nations.

Chairman was carried, and the meet
