Mccreary, Of MaJiion. Wk would appeal again to the with prohibition antecedents to reconsider if they have resolved to aid the republican candidate by voting for Nooe. Suppose you do succeed in defeating Gov. McCreary, what do you gain ? Noi the most sanguine of you can believe for a moment that Nooe stands the ghost of a chance of election. Then it is Ewell, if not McCreary, and who Is Ewell ? Simply an ordinary, one horse lawyer, whoso practice Ib nearly exclusively confined to defending violators of tho prohibitory liquor -laws which prevail id Laurel and surrounding counties. Those who are interested in the enforcement of those laws recognize him as their greatest enemy, and we have heard it said that but for Ewell, who always conies to the rescuo of the violators, they could do .so a great deal more effectively. On the other hand, Gov. McCreary Is a man of ability, who has by faithful service attained a National reputation as a safe, conservative and excelleni leader. Ho is a temperance man in practice as well as in theory and he can do the cause more good than a score of Ewclls, who if by any irony of fate, should be elected, would prove of h'68 value to anybody and to anything than a knot on a log. All thinking men will pause before they assist in makirga Congressman out of such a monstrosity. it rigl t along.

Two-Dollar Dudley, whose tactics in in 187(1 will always be remembered in connection with fraudulent elections, has been laying his plans to buy the State again. In n letter to the chairman of the republican State committee, he discants on tho importance of carrying the State and makes this suggestion: "Divide the floaters into blocks of five and put a trusted man with necessary funds in charge of these live, aifd make him responsible that none get away and that all vote our ticket."

The plan hereto-1 fore pursued has been wondrously sue- j cessful. Elder Ballou's article clearly admits this. His reference to Maine, Kan-1 Has and Iowa as prohibition .States ami Lincoln as a local option county might have been supplemented by showing that throughout our State and in the , South generally the cause is steadily tri-' umphiiig. He says, "I believe to-day i that a majority of the democratic party , are, at heart, in favor of the suppiession j of the entire liquor tnillic. The same is true of tho republican party." As this subject has been and can he presented, discussed and acted upon asn separate issue, distinct from nil questions of party politics, where is the propriety The Richmond Register Bpeaks of him like a sling at the manhood, or, at least, as the "Little Red Porker." That wont do. The warrant described the animal as a Little Bed Hog, and you must stick to tiie record. NEWS CONDENSED.

In a fightata. jolftical conventiori' In Louisville a year or two agoFlynn Davis jobbed one of Sel Miller's eyes out. Ho was indicted for mayhem and the case was to have come up for final trial last week. But Sel, who is a very big-hearted fellow, refused to prosecute his assailant and In a m inly letter to the pros ecuting attorney admitting that he was erhaps as much to blame as he, asked that the indictment be dismissed, which was done, and Mr. Miller, who has reformed verv much of late, has increased the growing respect for himself.

FARM AND TRADE ITEMS. to do with governmental policy within these narrow bounds. If Elder Ballon would consult our Federal Constitution and the learned expounders of that instrument, he might avoid tho error of saying, "It is the prerogative and duty of governments, State anil National, to preserve and improve tho morals of ItB citizenship." Webster is good authority for tho lexical forco of a word. But when one consult him, he ought not to mistake an adjective for n noun, lest he be led into error. The Elder is not fortunate in his attempted argument by way of illustration. Does the federal government enact laws against stealing, except In tho narrow limits of its own constitutional prerogative? If a man should steal one of r.lder mllou s horses would he look to the federal courts for redress? The State deals with such matters. But the man who steals a horso has invaded the personal, civil rights of his neighbor. The man who sells him whisky has not done so. Tho rates are not similar. Again, the fact that the liquor tratlle is taxed, does no more imply the right of govcrnmehttil prohibition than did the tax oh'inco.nes imply a governmental right to forbid a man to accumulate property. Thunder is surely mistaken here. ' I do not suppose that any one will for a moment controvert tho Elder's emphatic assertion that "this great liquor question now agitating America, Great Britain and'AustruIiu is a national question." I'rrriuinly will not, but still insist that it is not a political question. We are now engaged in a great struggle. A strictly political question is at issue. It is a simple question of governmental jiolicy. The vast majority of temjcrancf people if Elder Ballon is correct jiro j mm to settle this by the exercise of their political rights as citizens of the l. S. They are now. asthov have ' ance men. They have not abated their interests in and efforts for this great i'jiuw. But this does not suit some of our over-zealous fellow workers. Tliuv want us to neglect what we feel our duty as citizens, in looking after the political and economic welfare of the country; put up figure-heads as candidates for ollice; desert our well proven methods and adventure on new whcnies in which we want confidence. For one I cannot do it. Mounts Ev i.. NOBILITY NOTES. Ma. Bismarck In tull and very gray and as foud of champagne an hor hutband.
