WM. NASH, Editor
Congressional Convention.
We propose Gallipplis as the place
for holding the next Congressional
Convention. Our railroad wiUbc
completed by the time in fact be
fore the Convention meets. This
irill put Gallia, Vinton and Hocking
on a line and of easy access. Ports
month has always had the conven
tion nnder the present District, and
jve have had to go a hundred miles
over and again. Now it is no far
ther from Portsmouth to Gallipolis
than it is from Gallipolis to Ports
mouth the mountain should come
once to Mahomet. Besides Scioto
county is off to one side of the Dis
trict while we are nearer the center.
Furthermore, we have the finest and
largest court house in the District in
which to hold the convention. Put
all this in your pipes.
There will be a meeting of the Re
publican State Central Committee ou
the 11th of March, at Columbus, to
fix the time and place for holding
the next Republican State Conven
tion. "We are authorized to extend
a general invitation to all who desire
to attend, to be present on this oc
Ex-Mayor Moore, of Cincinnati,
died last week. Col. Moore was a
patriot who served his country in the
Mexican war and in the late rebel
lion, and a citizen .whose sympathy
for tbe suffering was illustrated in
beneficent works.
In the Legislative proceedings of
Feb. 24th, we find the following:
Mr. Boman presented the petition
of Hev. J. M; Leslie, and 227 other
citizens of Gallia county, praying for
the enactment of the Local Option
The German Republicans of New
York city celebrated Washington's
birthday by a mass meeting, assem
bled to give expression to their views
against a third terra nomination for
President. Speeches were made by
Ex-Governor Dittenhoeffer, Dr. Jtr-
Hus Brucn anrt others, inere is no
question that the Germans generally
oppose the third term idea.
The following from the State Jour
nal is full of good sense:
The common enemy the Demo
cratic party is quite enough to sn
tagonizc at present without engen
dering family strife, which will be
the result if booms-are continued.
Blaine men are already jealous of
sherman men and vice versa, and as
a matter of course jealousy begets
strife. This is all wrong, ill-timed
at any time, and especially just now.
Let booms cease from this date, and
await the action of the Chicago Con
vention. Allow the delegates to that
Convention to go there uninstructed
and untrammeled, and confer togcth
er as men should do, not as puppets
" handled bv manmulators of cliaucs.
An Alarming Threat.
- .
Congressman Hill, of Ohio, re-
centlv made a sneech at a Democrat-
ic meeting in Washington, and among
other things said, "We intend to in
augurate our candidate for President,
whether we elect him or not." In or
der to save the Nation from cnarchy,
we must bury the Democratic party
out of sight. This is the work of
this Presidential year.
Hon. Milton Saylor was selected
to present the claims of Cincinnati,
before tho National Democatic Com
mittee, as the best place for holding
the National Convention. We have
read the speech". Many strong points
are advanced in favor of Cincinnati,
but we are disappointed in not find
ing some slight reference to Sknel
bakerJs Opera House and the beer
Presidential Movements.
The New York. Republican State
Convention for the selection, of dele
gates to the Chicago Convention, met
at Utica Feb. 25th. The convention
by a small majority, expressed a
preference for Gen. Grant, but there
was no positive instructions, to the
extent of binding the delegates.
In Indiana, Feb." 25th, the dele
gates to the Chicago Convention,
were selected by Congressional Disr
tnct Conventions. No instructions
were given, but it is believed that all
but two are Blaine men.
The Illinois Convention will, not
meet until May 19th, This State, it
is generally believed, will send up
Grant delegates.
The Vermont Republicans held
their State Convention Feb. 25th.
It resolved to present the name of
Senator Edmunds as a suitable per
son to be nominated for President.
Our citizens are all delighted with
the suggestion made some time ago
in the Sentinel, that when the Rail
road reaches McArthur, our town
will give a reception to our sister,
heretofore so much estranged by the
almost impracticable roads between
us. Logan SentineL
Hold on, brother Green; you are
too fast Gallipolis folk' would like
to hava hand in that affair! nCan,t'
you: wait. until the road reaches here,
arid, then .we will have a general re
union and "haod-sliaking over" the

Mr. Beman After the Confederates.
The Confederate Congress having
failed to make the necessary appro
priations for carrying the mails, the
P. M. General , issued, f'cu. 2Utn, an
order reducinct the trips on all routes,
except Railroads and Steamboats, to
one trip a week, after March 1, 1880.
With this order enforced, Gallipolis
would be compelled to establish a
private route, or remain without ade
Qiiate mail facilities. Mr. Beman,
appreciating the situation, offered a
joint resolution to correct the threat
ened ovil. Wc copy from the Stale
Journal of Friday:
Mr. Beman offered the following
inint. rnanlnt.InnT
W HEBE AS, 1 ne rostmasier ueuaw
has issued an oraer mrecung mat on
and after March 1st, 1880, the ser
vice on all star routes shall be re
duced to one trip per week on ac
count of insufficient appropriation;
nrl whorimH. the business interests
of the country demand the contiri
iinnnn of said service: therefore.
Resolved bit the General Assembly I
of the State of Ohio, That our Sen I
ators in Congress are hereby instruct-
ed and our Representatives are re
quested to use all proper means to
make the appropriation necessary to
secure the continuance of said ser
Besotted, That the Governor of
Ohio is hcrebj- requested to forward
a copy of these resolutions to the
Senators and Representatives from
Ohio m Congress.
Mr. Beman in offering the reolu-
tion said that he thought that it
should pass. That it certainly was of
great importance to tue people oi
Ohio that our mails should be. con
tinued daily as they are carried now.
Unless tnc appropriation snouia oe
made immediately our mails on star
routes that are now daily will only
be carried once a week after March
1, and it would be a great incon
venience to the people.
This brought out a verj animated
and .a pointedly partisan discussion
which could not be choked off till
Mr. Estill remarked that another
speech would defeat the resolution,
and if it was left alone It would go
through. The resolution was then
adopted by a unanimous vote.
Capitol Chit-Chat.
Under this head, Fannie B. Ward,
iu the Evening Sunday Chronicle,
Washington, D. C, is writing up in
teresting sketcnes of public men in
that centre of poltical power and life.
In speaking of "a trio of Ohioans,'
the writer says this of Mr. Neal and
hi3 family:
Among tho prominent members of
the House from that luckv State is
Hon. Henry S. Neal, of the Twelfth
district. He is a handsome man for
a "Buckeye,"- tall, distingue, and in
the prime of life; that is, he has had
just half a cent urj' ot joys and sor
rows, cares, pleasures, hopes, uncer
tainties, and fears. For the past
twenty five years he has been active
lv engaged in politics, and has risen
step by step on the ladder till now
the topmost round is almost within
his reach. He was at one time min
ister to Portugal, but resigned and
came home to make his. calling and
election sure to Congress. This is
his second term, arid the people of
Ohio, with the good sense for which
they arc famons, have no insuperable
objections to "tlnru terms,' but will
return him again and again as long
as he is willing to come. Mr. Neal
has been an active member of the
District Committee, and it is mainly
due to his labor and ability that den
izens of the District are indebted for
wise and well-matured bills pertain
ing to taxation and the revising,
compiling; and simplifying the laws
of Columbia, so that they may not
always be without even territorial
privileges, worso off than "the man
without a country." Mrs. Neal,
slender, dark-eyed, and eminently
sensible lady, is here .with her hus
band, while their two voting daugh
ters are yet at school. The thriving
city of Ironton is their home, and
the Ncals are as popular there as
here. It is no wonder that the "Uni
ted States of "Ohio" has so much to
say about matters and things in gen
cral when she sends such competent
men to do her talking.

Columbus Letter.
[Special Corr. of the Journal.]
COLUMBUS, O., Feb. 27, 1880.
The Legislature adjourned thi
morning until Tuesday next, 3 o'clock
P. M. The past week has been the
most active one of the session, and
tho future gives promise that there
will be no further delays. The idea,
however, that this legislature - has
been slow and dilatory in the prose
cution of its work is not the fact.
There has been some little difference
of opinion in regard to some im
portant questions, and the commit
tees havo given unusual attention
and consideration to these measures
In order that- all differences might
be harmonized, and the best possible
results obtained. Every thing is in
good shape now and we can begin to
predict something of the future.
The deficiency appropriation bill
has passed both branches and was
signed this morning.
The passage of this bill in the Sen
ate created the only real shaking-up
of the elements that we have in this
end of the Capitol during the session
The democratic side of the House
denounced the title of the bill as a
fraud and a misnomer. This argu
mcnt was met by tho records of the
63d General Asseraby, showing that
the democrats were the first to inau
gurate and pass such a bill, under
the title of a deficiency bill. Then
it was right, now it is wrong. It is
amusing to see the democratic mem
bers get up and denounce in the bit
cerest oi terms, in tins legislature,
the very measures that they inaugu
rated and pnt through with so much
conspicuonsncss in the last General
Assembly when they had the major!
ty. With a democrat there is noth
ing so mean and unjust, and no more
flagrant usurpation of political pow
er than to attempt, just now, to re
organize a public institution. They
denounce It as being the height of
all political immorality. But I think
the die is cast. The last week's de
velopments indicate that a clean
sweep will be the inevitable.
Senator Pond's reorganization bill
passed the Senate yesterday. It is a
square cut bill and provides, for a
