The Bazoo is authorized to announce J. C. Porter as a candidate for Sheriff of Pet tis county, subject to the republican county nominating convention. -At the court house to-morrov night. 'Come'out to the meeting to morrow night. Don't forget the meeting at the court house to-morrow night The Bazoo to-day announces the candidacy of J. C. Porter, a republi can, for sheriff. The father of Mr. Porter was sheriff of Peitis county a quarter of a century ago and one oi the best the county ever bad. Mr. H. B. Wieman, one of the fore moat members of the present city council is announced for re-nomiua-tion. He has made a good, safe guar dian of the city's interest?. A great many of the citizens oi the third ward have urged htm to make the race. While the Bazoo has always depre cated the carrying of pistols, yet un less some method can be devised which will disarm the thugs and ruffi ans wbo lay in wait upon the highways and rob wherever they caa intimidate, there is some excuse for carrying a club, to say the least. Judge Lynch held court in Marsh field, Mo., a few days ago and now the press and people are mourning over their haste and the fact that, they did not allow the law to take its .course. Their repentance comes too late, but it is not too late for an ex ample for other places. The chances for R. T. Gentry's i . nomination for the position of state treasurer are growing brighter every day. The Bazoo s exchanges are a! most unanimous in, their praises of his ability. He is not using any methods which any honorable gen- tleman might not use, either, and it is no wonder that his friends through- out the state are loyally enlisting un der his banner and are prepared to do honest battle in his interests. The "priceless memories" which are connected with the state university and which the people of that place are continually harping upon are not wanted by the competing towns for the university. Columbia is welcome to them and all the rest of the eclat she has gainrd by her profit off the university for tha past fifty years. Priceless memories," however, do not fill a depleted treasury and satisfy the people that they are getting their money's worth. That well known humorist, William, better known as "Bill," Nye, will de liver a lecture in this city next Wednesday evening. For clear, penetrating humor, Bill Nye has no equal to-day, and it is doubtful if in his own particular held he will ever have a rival. His wit is not coarse, it is not something which leaves a bad taste in the mouth, it is clear, effer vescent, natural.good to meet and carry away the burthens of the heart and hss a song in it which bubbles forth its mime as sweet as a bobolink's greet ing. The Bazoo trusts that together with Mr. Burbank, who is well known to Sedalians, he may be greeted with a full house after "prayer meeting" is ovar. The truth is the press of the state is practically unanimous against re moval. Outside the localities "Ad ding' for the university there are not a dozen influential papers in the state that favor removal. Columbia Her ald. The Herald errs in statin? the above. A great many of the leading newspapers in the state are in favor of the removal of the university, and while notably the S Louis papers have not been in favor of it, the press of Kansas City, St. Joseph, Sedalia and other large towns have favored the measure on the very sensible ground that the state cannot afford to give the money which Columbia de mands for the rebuilding, and as it is the people's money, not Boone coun ty's money, the people have a right to be heard in the matter. That there is original sin ia human ity is doubtless recognized by all, but that it should in Christianized and fraternal c mmunities take the form it does is somewhat of a mystery, even to the pschycologist. Take for in stance, the class of people who are prone to add to the misery which by a misfortune good people are some times made to suffer, instead of sym pathizing with them and encouraging them. In most instances, perhaps, it is not real malice which prompts this class, but a certain inate something which partakes of a desire for sensa tionalism and which thoughtlessly does harm for the sake of keepiug up a stir. There is real wrong in this mode of procedure and it Bbould be remembered that no matter what the first instinct may be, it is only those who nre depraved at heart who will persist in a coutse which defies con vincing arguments and which wou'd rather fo3ter a wrong than uphold a right. The newspapers of nearly all the neighboring towns have shown a com mendable spirit in helping to encour age the search for the wretch who committed the recant outrage in this city, but at the sams time there are some wlrch hive been condemnatory because the fiend was allowed to es cape. It is much easier to give advice at long distance range and say what ought to, or should be done, than it is to handle the matter with a full un derstanding of the case. The author ities as well as the people of Sedalia have spared neither careful work nor expense to apprehend the guilt-stained perpetrator of last week's dreadful affair, and it mty be said in this con nection that in any other case of crime there is always the same Bpirit animating the people of Sedalia a spirit which looks to the protection of every man, woman and child, and the bringing of every criminal to justice. While it h true that the great ma- jority of men in Sedalia are public spirited and enterprising, yet there are sti:l a lew barnacles clinging to I tiad arlrrdnnAmanf tvhn niirrh f in turn over a new leaf. It is a not-cable ye' lamentable fact that upon an occasion which promises rich results for Soda- lia, or in fact upon any occasion which brings out her enterprising citi zen?, the fiw referred to are invari ably absent absent for th& very anpireut reason thu there may be a c'eniind for them, to open their pocket books. Now it is not because these men are not po?aessed of ample means; it is not because they do not expect to derive any benefit from that which their neighbors are giving time and money to achieve; it is not because they do not hope that Sedalia's advancement may be given a boost, but it is because they are lacking iu that spirit which any man, who ins sedalia d mteresiat heart, is possessed of. This is all wrong, and the Bazoo trusts that the gentlemen referred to may see the error of their way and come forward not onlv with the encouragement of veice, bu t the encouragement of money, which is still better. The selfishness which causes them to keep aloaf while those who have no better right than they, bear the vextation and burthen of carrying on and pushing Sedalia's enterprises is a fhama to their citizen ship and a disgrace to their manhood, My what they may by way of excuse. Sedalia has many rivals; she has much to contend with and while it is possible that the grand men who are always on the alert for her interests will still go on to victory yet it is un fair and uuju3t that those who have slept while others toiled should share in those victories which hard work and self sacrifice of both money and time have won. THE CITY OF SEDALIA. No Sedalian should be ashamed of Sedalia. On the contrary, it should be a matter of pride that within the confines of one of the grandest states in the sisterhood in the bright galaxy of enterprising cities none claims pre-eminence to the Queen City. Just reflect for a moment and analyze those influences that go to build up great cities and peaceable communities. Anywhere within our broad domain is there a more hospitable people, more enterprising or more loyal to home interests? Is not the location and other natural advantages of a superior order? Have not our citizens, time and again, exhibited an enterprise that has called forth the commendation of even rival towns? Is not crime always at the very lowest ebb, and don't we live sb neighbors should dwell, in peace and harmony? All this is true, and much more. In a time of general depression, and as compared with other cities, the growth of Sedalia has been wonderful. The building has been phe nomenal. The peace of the city has been extraordinarily good. Her reputation abroad is stainless. Convention after convention comes and goes, and deep in the hearts of the participants are pleasant memories of the Queen City. For almost a quarter of a century the Bazoo has labored in the interests of the city. It has fought a thousand battles in that cause and never yet Btrucka blow against her interests. The Bazoo has an abiding faith in the future greatness-of the city, and joins heartily in any enterprise that tends to its upbuilding. It has much to say for Sedalia not a word against it A MIGHTY VOCATION. The increase in the number of those who are entering the different profes sions is indeed large. That there will be room for all is a question difficult to solve. Many there are who com menced their studies with a profession as the goal to which they aspired but retraced their steps before reaching it. Of all who reached it how many were constant? Or rather how many branched off and failed to stand guard over their once cherished idol ? There is however a class of men, strictly speaking, not reckoned among the profession, which embraces within its circle not only those who have speeded from the ranks of tho profes-jTheir ( sions, but all others as well whether .of low extraction or high birth, titled or not titled, hizhly educated or moderately instructed. Lick of ambition or inclination to be ranked among thir titled brethren! or perhaps circumstances beyond their control have laid the paths of many in the directhn iu which they are ploddiug. Be that as it may, of such are the rank j of the merchants made up. To some an association with the "common herd," as it pleases them to term those not included in the profes sions, would be indicative of a lack of refinement, and would betray a na ture little inclined t' seek employ. ment from the pursuit of knowledge. It is true that in our intercourse with the merchant we come in contact with every class of society, but a characteristic that cannot fail to be observed in not a few in their eager ness to learn. This propensity may appear at first simply as the outcome of a desire to succeed in business. A young man sun-bisking on the sea of life exerts all his energies to ascertain a knowl edge of whit is goiug on in his par ticular line, applying himself to the study of everything that will tend in any measure to send bis fragile bark alon' the rutiled waters of trade. Iu his inquiries roads to a loftier and nobler education are opened to him, and a taste for higher pursuits than mere gain may be easily acquired. For silently and almost unperceived does the charm of knowledge steal upin us, and never, when once we are under the mystic spell do we wish to throw it off. Glance at the list of names of those contributing to the maintenance of educational institutions, of schools of art and science, of public libraries and the like, and in that cotegory you will find that the most prominent places are marked by men who lay claim to no distinction on account of title ; or if perchance, some were once whit is termed professional men, they put no stress upon the fact. Nor can it be said that pride cr public opinion always plays an impor tant part in the making of such be hests. Some will be found who may possibly u-e this means as a cloak to cover an unacquired literary taste, to appear an appreciator of intellectual worth, while in reality nothing but the road to wealth seems to them as worthy of consideration and study. They are however in the minority, for it is a rare case indeed where a person is found giving approbation and support to an undertaking which he believes to be of no advantage to himself nor others. The merchant may be called the true support of the government. On him either directly or indirectly the burden of sustaining the country's credit lies, through him the products of the sons of toil find a profitable market, by his example laudable am bition is implanted and fastened in the breasts of the riesing generation, while the currency at bis command enables the exchanges of bond?, to pay oh debts or make improvements. The influence that is exercised by inter course between two nations cannot be but of advantage to each. It brings the people to a closer union and tends to obliterate from their minds the many prejudices that have associated themselves with the people of many countries. The most brilli ant intellects of all quarters of the globe are brought into contact, ideas are exchanged and opinions are ex pressed with no email amount of profit either to the individuals them selves or to their fellow countrymen. A wider channel moreover for science and art is opened. The choicest grains of information are gathered; the latest discoveries and newest inventions are made known to the world to be made use of not only in the storing of the mind with knowledge but in application of the principles and truths acquired as well. Through no medium can Urn inter- course be accompusneu witn sucn faithful results as through the trade of merchants with foreign countries, imports and exports serve in for Infants and Children.
