' a rule, ttie Presidential contest has very little Interest for the Old World. On the pres ent occasion, however, an Issue is Involved vn ch very closely concerns Euruiie, more par ticulars; Oreat Britain. Mr. Cleveland has tak en his stand for free trade, and altho his party managers have considerably planed down his platform, he is universally recognized In the States as pledged to Initiate a new departure In fiscal policy. Nor can there be any doubt that be would act up to this understanding Were he elected. The central issue of this con test lies between the maintenance of the pres ent fiscal system intact and Its modification in the direction of free trade. And on that bioad question Mr. Cleveland's candidature naturally mid necessarilly carries English sympathy. Thiuk About It. New York Sun IDem. "Down in Millville. a village In Rladcstone, which lias for years been Democratic by more than three to one, a very serious break is re jKirted. The voters are largely woolen mill op eratives, and the woolen business has been particularly bau for the past two years. Talk with the mill operativus and they attribute it to the tariff agitation. You can't beat the Idea out out of their beads, no matter what line of argument Is taken. They believe that the at tempted tariff revulnu is reHinsiblc fi r the idle weaving looms and spinning jacks an. I Jen nies just as firmly as they believe that wool grows on the backs of .sheep The shops that make woolen machinery m the city of Worces ter are quiet ; some of them have been idle the past week for the first time in fifteen years, and the employees charge it to tariff agitation. The lesson that these wage-workers of Massa chusetts are learning In the bitter school of ex perience will soon be taught workmen In other 5 arts of the country if unfortunately the Free rade conspirators gain a victory at the polls next November. Do Your Duty. The Republicans of Holt county will, on Saturday ot nest week, 18lh iust., hold their township meetings to select delegates to their county convention which is to be held in Mound City on the 20th inst. It is of the utmost im portance that every honest, intelligent and public-spirited Republican should do bis part now toward placing first class candidates in Ihe field. This is a public privilege as well ns a public duty. Any voter can vote a ticket which has beeu prepared by others, or refuse to go near the polls on election dny upon the plea that the politicians manage the piirnarics and that the people have little or nothing to do about selecting suitable nominees. It rests with the Republicans to go on Saturday of next week, the 18tb, to ihcir respective township primaries and themselves choose delegates to the con vention who will properly represent them, and who shall act solely with tho public eood and party success and prosperity in view. Tho convention soon to be held will be an important work to perform in re gard to nominating candidates for the offices to bo filled. There is to be a contest over the nomination of several ot the officers. Let these contests on the part of the candidates be made lion orablv and in a dignified manner. Let the contest be considered by the dele gates only from tho standpoint first, of clearness; second, capability; thirdly, availability; fourthly, loyalty to party. Unless these qualifications are con sidered by tho convention, just so sure you nominate men doomed to defeat. You can nominate, but these delegates must remember that they cannot force the Republicans ot Ilolt county to vote for intemperate, incoinpotent.imfcortby men ; nor can they consistently ask the loyal voters of the Republican party to walk up to the polls and can their bal lots for men who have eyer been chronic kickers and persistent ticket scratchers they will not do it. It is better that we be defeated than be guilty of awarding party treason. No other kind of candidates than we have mentioned must be named. This is no time for any but strong men. This no time for a ticket made on personal grounds It must be on Republicanism. It was Allen G.TIiurrcan, the pres ent Democratic candidate for Vice Presi dent, who said in 18C2: -'The Hun sai inns had less cause for complr.int against Austria than Ihc South against the North." In other words he claim ed that the lebclHou was justifiable; and there is nothing iu his subsequent record to show that he has ever changed that opinion. It appears that Mr. Cleveland is dis pleased with (Sen. Black on account of the latters attempt to secure the nomi nation for the Vice Presidency: but be seems to be entirely viliing that another one ot his appointee, Gen. (2 B. Fisk, Chairman of the Board of Indian Com missioners, -iliouhi run lor th3 Presi-rteney. Organize Your Clubs'. The lapiil increase of KepuUican dubs in all parls of the countrt is a tact of decided iul rc-ttiml impuitauce. It implies organtz-ilion of the must de sirable and effective Kind Such clubs are coo-posed mainly, as a rule, of the young and nggressiv members of Ihe parly the clement that creates enthus iasm and gives to a campaign its prac tical and conquering vigor. The first election of Linci ln was largely due to organizations of this description ; and the same is true of other notablt3 Re publican victories. There are certain facilities ot success in politics which can only be reaehed by enlisting the active interest of Voters who are fond of doing things energetically and willing to give close attention to details. Orators are useful in their way,ano? the newspapers render good service m another way ; but after all, the best results are brought about by the clubs that make it a point to appeal directly to individual voters and to promote party discipline and confidence. One such agency in every township is the mo t advantageous thing that a party can baye, as exper ience has fully demonstrated. Nothing elto can bs made to answer Its purpose, and the party that tries to dispense with it is certain to suffer accordingly. It is particularly desirable that the Republican party of Holt connty should provide itself vtith as much aid of this kind as possible in the great contest which is now upon us, and we trust the Republicans of this county will at once proceed to organization of Leagues :n their respective townships. The Oregon League covered itself with glory and honor in attending the rally at Craig on Saturday last, accompanied bv the Cornet band, and no Republican will dispute the fact that much good was accomplished by Iheir appearance in a body, in the stiong-liold of rock-ribbed Democracy of Unit. Now as the Re publicans ot Craig and Oregon have started the ball, let every township in the county keep the ball rolling, and rolling, until you roll up a majority ot 800 for the Republican ticket. Harmony. The Sentinel desires to sprak a few words to the members of its party regarding the present campaign which it feels are not only proper but well timed. Doubtless there wi.l be con siderablo competition for the nomina tions and therefore a pretty warm strug gle np to the time ot the convening of the convention. In the beat of political contests, men are liable to do and say many things which they always tegret in their calmer moments. There will naturally be more exciiement over the Republican nominations than on the other side.for the reason that Holt is a Republican county mid a nomination is by many considered equivalent to an election. There should be no bitterness ot feeling or any undue antagonism be tween members of the same party,for it is not only detrimental to the best in terests of the party itself, but it brings about a state of affairs in the commun ity which are ncithci pleasant or profit able to anyone. A number of very prominent and worthy gentlemen have announced themselves as candidates. It is just as easy to have a manly, digni fied and pleasant contest.as it is to have one wherein a great many personalities are engaged in, and such a contest can bo bad if all those who ae interested in it or their lrictids, wi 1 use the for bearance which is characteristic of true manliness, nnd guard ng.-iiut gi';iii; ut terance to tho.ightltss liHt offen-ive re run! ks which aie liable sometimes to produce an estrangement among the best of friends. We arc under the im pression that the genii-men so fsr named in connection with the public offices are men who will not provoke any adverse criticism by their peisonal conduct, but who have entered the race upon their own individual men's and claims, and whatever the retilt may prove to be will abide by it like the sentlemen th-y are believed to be. This is the true spirit th-it should prevail in all con I efts Inside of Ihe party ranks, and the" Sentinel hopes to see it especially manitested in the campaign now being conducted for the nomina tions. It will be the best for the com munltv, for the candidates and lor their friends, Bird Chat which is g oil tor all should in nil instances prevail. The Sentinel has only extreme contempt for the man who'kicks after enteiing this p'irty convention Youso Men. This is a good year for young men who will east their ilrs-t vote, to start out nht. A light start is by voting the straight Republican tick et. The old man who cast his first vote for -Old Tippecanoe" in 1840,wouhln'l now sell ihe satisfaction the memory of it affords him, for "big money." Bui above all things, do not be a mug wump If you can't be a Republican, I hen votothe straight Democratic tick et. There are lots of old men who take a great deal ot satisfaction in hav ing cast their first vote for Gen. Jack con. Be a man or a mouse, but not a Mugwump. Harrison and Morion is a glorious ticket to start on But there is some credit in being a straight out, whether as a Republican or a Democrat. You never hear of a fellow going around bragging that he is a eunuch or hermaphrodite. That is just how a Mugwump will feel, in the coming years. Start out right by voting the Republican ticket. Kansas Chief. Generally speaking, the utmost cheapness is a desirable thing; but it is impossible, nevertheless, to produce a condition in that respect which may really be an Injnry rather than a bene fit "I hold it to be true," Gen. Harri son snys, "that whenever tho market pficc of an-amelo is so low that the man or woihari who mate it can not gel a fair living out of the making of it it is loo cheap." That is the doctrine of the Republican parly; and it is so simrle that tho humblest voter can readily recommend it. The TennesBe Republicans have nom inated a strong tiskct, and are by no means without hope of carrying the Statu. They look for special accessions from the old Whig element, now that the great doctrine of protection is the main thing for which the Republican party is striving; and furthermore, they point with confidence to tho fact that while tuo iiemocraiievoie oi lenii-csc-ee ha increased less than 500 dur ing the Iat twelve years, ti e Repub lican vote hns increased 34,000. Dr. J. A. Brooks, Prohibition can didate fr Vice President -says, he has been a rebel. ai-hve holder and a fire eating Democrat, but thanks God that' he has never been a Republican. It is quite evident that while Dr. Brooks cannot hope to be elected to Ihe office for which he is running, he is tolerable certain to distance all in the way of eoirageous and disgusting asininity. A GltAXD IS ALLY. Tho First Guns or the Campaign Kepul'licaiiiMii at Craig. There is a political wave sweeping over this country that proniuc-s to hurl the last vestige of Democracy from power. Kven in old Missouri, the tide j of Republicanism runs hi".h. There was a spontaneous up-rising at Craig j last Saturday that fairly illustrates the political stains in every northern state. The Harrison ranks are swelling and j ere the ides of November. Demociacy will smoulder in iis tomb. Tliuie is a God-forsaken corner m Holt county 1 where the aroma of Democracy lurks like malaria over the haunts of disease. The very air is stagnant with the put- id breath of Democracy. It is our fcis'er township, Union. Bourbonism inlCst her being and gnaws at her vitals. Philanthropies and well-wishers of hu manity determined to infuse new life into her reins and renoyate this stag nant pool. In accordance with this purpose abont 1,500 stalwart Republi cans assembled there August 4th and raised a pole. The spirit of Republi canism ran high The enthusiasm was. never before jo strong. Yet this is but a faint ripple on the great political sea, that is to be stirred to its depths before November next. Owing to a faulty splice the pole broke', and Democrats interpreted this as an evil' omen. The pole was immediately mended and rose heaven, ward supporting the stars' and stripes. There were brains' enough on the spot to repair the flaw. May this not be interpreted as the Democracy struggling to break down our American system of industries, and tho ability of the Republican party to rescue them from destruction, and restore them safe and sound to the American people? Eighty-six of Oregon's Harrison and Morton Club went up on the afternoon train. It was a brilliant array. The boys were adorned with campaign hats and canes. We found fellow-Republicans from every part of the county. They lent abelping hand and swelled the ranks,marching after th 'it gallant soldier and able statesman from Indiana. They were accompanied by the Silver Cornet Baud of Oiegon. Maitiand'd band was also on the "round and the very air was filled with martial music They made a brilliant parade in the evening undei the marshakmip ot E J. Kellogg. It was a sorry day for Democrats. They stood on the corners, pale with hale, and Hi Id with jealous. After a bril tatnt, reconnoiter through the streets, keeping step to martial' time, they halt ed before the speaker's stand, erected jiit in front of the depot. Able speak ers were on the ground. Ex-Mayor Ilnrtwig and the Hon. F. M. Posegate, of St. Joseph, come up to address the people. Mr. Kellogg opened the exercises with a few eloquent and sound icmarks. lie is a brilliant young man and spoke in his usual happy stylo. He said that the ptcsence of so many ueighbois was a source of profound gratitude to him and his people. He said that this leinonstration only indicated tho up rising of the American people all oyer this country. Harrison will bring suc cess line his illustrous ancestor did in 1840. Missouri, the grandest statu In the galaxy of slates, is to bo revolution ized and rescued from the grasp of Bourbonism. Democracy stands be tween us and progress and the people are learning tiiat fact. Let us move on iu the gallant fight. The sky hope is full of siars. The rib-rocked east sends us cheer. The Golden Gate join in tho march'. He paid a glowing tribute to Major Hartwig, the coming Repub lican nominee for congress from this district, lie is able and sound to the core on the living issues of the day. Mr. Hartwig spoke as follows: "I came to rejoice and celebrate with yoa. I beartly endorse the work nnd platform of the Chicago convention. The Republican party stands on a plat form of protection to American indus try ti American genius and American homes. Chicago sends us assurance of American rule Ihe St. Louis conven tion sends us assurance of British rule. Great Britain bad protection up. to within forty years. She built up a great manufacturing system with the policy she seeks to destroy in ihis country by a runiou competition. Cleveland is the leady tool of Free Trado devisers. He never raised a hand in defence of the American Flag or done a patriotic act. He refused L fight wheu the nation's life wa imperiled, and has inaugurated policy that bas brought ruin and di-a-ter in its train every time it has gain ed ascendency. He would touch the len der cords ot patriotic hearts by surren dering the flags they fought to capture, rathei than grant a pension to I he brave boys who fought to pieserve the Stars and Stripes. He would rather tear down the American labor system, than to raise a hand against the poisonous doc trine of free trade. Protection must secure the homes ot the laboring man and keep bim free. It must make home-markets build np labor if the nation is to be great. The Republican plalfoira demands a tree ballot and an honest count. It has ever been the party of live issues and sound states manship. It will guard the country and destroy monopoly by encouraging home competition, especially foreign monopoly, and throw legislative re straints about those at home. If the wealth of a country driftsinto the hands of a few, it will control legislation and destroy free government. Such it has done in England. Ireland was once prosperous and happy. She listened to the seductions ot Free Trade Eng land and lost her independence and in dividuality. The platfoim promises to protect the public domain and secure it to American settlers. It declares that we wiil have a home, not a foreign policy. The present administration has fulfilled no promises and shacefully used tho veto power. It defeated the Blair bill nnd put itself down as an enemy to public education. Tho Re publican platform is in favor of pension in" every soldier who fought to preserve the Union. The Democracy is troubled about the foil treasury it found when the Republicans retired from power. But when we took the government from their hands we found no surplus. The treasury was empty and the nation's detance was handed over to the South ern Conspiracy. They shouted, 'Turn the rascals out!" Let us examine the books. Tbey did so, and afier weary months found a deficit of two cents. This they afterwards found. We now shout "Turn the hypocrites out!" They stole into power under false pretenses, but have been driven to take an issue, and we will drive them from power." Major Hartwig spoke for an hour in an able and eloquent manner. He dem onstrated his grasp of affairs and clearly convinced the people of bis ability to represent them in congress. He would reduce the sin plus by inter nal improvements. He would protect the lertile farmers of the Missouri Val ley and let the barrier stand against foreign competition. At the conclusion of his speech, Captain F. M. Posegate spoke on the issues of the day. He was eloquent, sound and patriotic. He is an able politician and orthodox in Republican principles. At the conclu sion of his remarks, H. T. Alkire was called to the stand, lie briefly review cu the Democrat record and showed them to be followers, totally desti tute of ability to legislate and un sound in statesmanship. "Tetibs" gave a good talk and showed his fertility of speech and thought. He is chairman of the county committee, and one ot the best in the history of the party in the county. T. C. Dungan, president of the Harrison and Morton club, was also along and enjoyed the demonstra tion highly. We all returned home with new zeal and determination. We arc on the highway of victory and "don't you forget it." Vcntl. "The muffled drum's sad roll h;3 beat, the soldiers last tat too Phil Sheridan, gallant Phil, bas met the enemy that he could not couquer, and be gallantly and bravely surrendered on Sunday last. The' life, character and achievements ot General Sheridan grandly illustrate the vat assimilative power of the American system. The son of foreign born parents, whose childhood was passed among the seventy and depriva tions of western frontier life, and who had none of the ad van tnges which are open to cveiy bov in the republic to-day wherever Ins lot may be cast, he ad vanced step by step, to the front rank of American military heroes He possess ed the fighting instincts of his race, and having hud tho opportunities which the national military academy furnished placed at his disposal, he made such use of them a to compensate the re public a thousand fold for the hospitable refuge which it presented to bis exiled parent. No page in the military history of any country outshines in resplendent luster that of the campaign of the Shenandoah Valley, and no incident in the troubtilous time of war, celebrated in poetry or pose, is more picturesque than the one immortalized in Buchanan Reid's lines cniitled'Sheridan's Ride." The career of no soldier, except alne it be John A. Logan, appealed with such dramatic force lo the patriotic in stincts of the American people as did that of Shfliidan. Ho was the embodi ment of ihe .lash and reckless gallantry of tho American trooper. Loyal to his supeiiors, unyielding in the pursuit of military advantage, he knew no feeling of personal danger, and no force of Southern chivalry ever sufficed to over come his onset, once made. The testi mony borne by Grant alone as to the magnitude of his services in the field would ot itself have immortalized him, even were it not the fact that from the day he took command of tho cavalry service of the Army of the Potoraar, his career up to the close of the war was a succession of the most brilliant and picturesque victories. Sherman was a modest man. No ear heard from him any recital of the events of his military career. He was a soldier and onlv a soldier, as bis famous response to the use of his name for the presidential nomination made plain. His place was with the army. He had lived the mature years of bis life a soldier, and he died one. He passes away at a time when his coun try can best dispense with his services. Few men have ever rendered greater services to that couniry, and none of his generation haye won tor themselves a greater need of popular love, ns the result of them, than the man upon whom was bestowed the affectionate sobriquet of "Little Phil." Op all the low-liyed, contemptible tricks to which the Bull-necked Cleve land tree trade locofocos have resorted already this early in the campaign, none i more revolting than their uc of tho G. A. 11. button with Cleveland's picture prominently located in the cen ter of the button, as u campaign badge. It was not enouah that this hater ot Union soldiers should veto the the pen sion bills for their relief, order the re turn ot the rebel flags captured by Un ion troops; refusing tD observe decora tinn day by going off on a fishing bout; ordering the hall-masting of the Ameri can flag in honor of Jeff. Thompson, the rebel fiend who sought to introduce into the Northern cities vellow fever and small-pox infected clothing not content, we say, with all this, and more of a similar nature, tbey now have the effronteiy to desecrate the sacred in signia of loyalty by converting it into a political badge, that, too, when they well know it is a misdemeanor in five or six Slates to even wear a Grand Army button by any one not entitled by actual membership to do so. That it should be adopted as a campaign badge for any political party is a disgrace which the Grand Army men will not tolerate, especially when it is remem bered that the man whose picture oc cupies the center of the circle in the star, sent a substitute to represent him when dratted, and allowed that sub stitute to die in the poor house Com rades is there any further insult the confederate democracy can offer and still call themselves the friends of the soldier? Mi:. McKinlet is a republican, and we don't want bim to preach any of his ideas lo our people. Senator Col quitt. This is what the Georgia Senator said when an invitation was aoont lo be delivered to ('ongiessman McKinley to speak at a meeting in Georgia under the auspices of the Chautauqua Society. And yonng men like Senator Colquitt try to make the country believe that so far as the South is concerned, the war has been ended long ago. Rephesentati ve McCohas Republi can, in the debate on the Mills bill in the House, forced Mills himself lo admit that the Committee on Wavs and Menus bai conferred with Mr. Haver- meyer, the bead of the sugar trust, and that tbe Mills bill had been chang ed to suit Havermcyer's recommen dations, while deputations of laboring men, who camo In the interests of oth er industries, were denied a hearing.

We then took the stea.ner falter transferring our baggage) and crossed Yaquiua Bay to Newport. Hie best camping ground being on Smith Beach, we InU to cross the bay again, tut In a different direc tion and In a smaller boat. Our ride on lh-i train was splendid, for we came over the moun tains and the scenery was grand, but it was nothing compared to our ride in the steamer. Uncle George stayed in the parlor most ot the time, toil I liked being out d.iors tro well and went out deck and sat. there until we landed. There were quite a good many excursionists on board and it was a Jolly crowd. I'm sitting now 011 a camp-stool writing wink the waves an 11 breikers inaki sucli a mournful noise It alums I makes me home-sick to hear them. Well, we cot ourselves and all our camping outfit In a. lovely spot 011 South Bench about H-JO last eve ning and Icul plenty of lime before dark to pitch our tent, fix our bells, build our camp-fire and get our supper. We had fried chicken, bread and butter, preserves and tea for supper. VWi ale quite heartily, for we hail a long walk and a tiresome one through the s'iiid from llieboat to the ramping ground. We sat and chatted around our lire until we grew s'eepy, when we retired. Our sleep was very peaceful, except aunt -Mart's, who imagined she heard wild no m ils and found out 111 the morning it was tue whistling buoy out In the ocean. Itlsarrat big thing and looks like an Immense ph..-- hits out in the ocean lo tell om. thing aboi.t tin; tides I don't understand It. but It m iki-s ti,o most awful sound, and It frightened aunt Mary . she said she could not sleep. We anee Hits 'morning at six, got breaktast over. Ilien made our wash bench and table to eat 011 .e have a regular lilt:e kitchen and an awning over It. so it makes it fine. I look a walk this morning bv mrself : did not know wher- I was goiiig.tmt lust thought I wmld see where I would conii out I had walked quite a ways, when looking op right in front ol me ros"-gre-.-t sand inils.

We started and look iliesame road I itarted 00. and sure enough just on Ihe oilier sld of those mountains of sand we could sew the big whilo caps of thePaeil'.e. Oh! You din't know ho.v "rand It is until jou have seen it yourselves. r The tide was coining In and ton could seethe Errat white waves come in and break on the rocks.
