Review (Newspaper) - November 21, 1882, Decatur, Illinois THE MORNING REVIEW VOL V DECATUR ILL TUESDAY MORNING NOVEMBER 21 1882 calls whisperers ped dlen of night shade peddlers ol Canada thistles peddlers of nnx Hos GROVER the lar governor elect of New York was in New York city Boya take How long Oh how will the Republican and the bosses oppose ing justice to the voters of thn 1st ward by a recount LET us have a free vote and a cor- rect count We have not heard of a single democrat that objects to a re- count of the votes of the 1st ward IN- 1866 when Heister democrat was defeated for governor of Pennsylvania Dr Jacob A Scheetz of Reading made a vow he would quit chewing tobacco until a democrat was elected governor When thoroughly convinced Fat tison was elected lie took a good big chew The Philadelphia Tunes says that the next congress will be cratic Clerk will less give way to Rainey the colored brother for the clerkship Pherson wants it only when there is a majority to elect He is for the colored brother all the time when empty are handed around MRS of Pa put a large bottle of wine in her cellar when James Buchanan was elected president at the time re- marking that it would not be opened until Pennsylvania had elected a democratic governor The bottle place was recently brought from its hiding and heartily enjoyed THE appears to think that it is Dr Miller who is pushing the matter of a recount in the 1st ward Neither Dr Miller Mr Templeman nor any other cratic candidate wants an office to which lie has not besn elected The democrats of Mae want to have all the votes counted that were cast for their candidates CHARLEY WHITAKER of the comb Eagle gives some good advice to the democrats of this ptate on building He says advice to democracy in Build your political fences higher as soon as possible There IB a swarthy and fellow in this state named John A Logan and he has been terribly sick ever since the democratic cyclone swept over the country As boon as he is able to from the severe shoes he will be looking around for an opportun ity to jump into the democratic party Keep up your The democratic party can't stand Ben and John A Logan at the same time In the name of all the Gods in Israel keep John Logan out of the democratic party To let him in would and mm the whole democracy and would no doubt drive two thirds of the demo crats over to the prohibition party THE Republican has got an opinion Good Can it stand the Ic thinks that there would be great danger in having a recount of the 1st ward vote except through the forms of an expensive election contest It does not deny the probability of an error It does not intimate that any change in the result would be made All that pears to be wanting is the consent of the republican bosses and Mi Wood county treasurer The more this matter is discussed the more certain the people become that there is an error Suppose the contest was close and the republican candidates were declared elected by majorities of With this evident error in the 1st ward the would still be clamoring against a recount Had the democratic nominees been elected by similarly small majorities the Republican still oppose a recount T It would then have fairly howled they want the manner So not It to have been tho policy of the state house people to have the tickets printed with the word duly on the proposition to money for tW completion of tho state house Tho regular re- publican ticket of this county was so printed Mr Oberly had ing to do with printing the tickets for the different counties and no matter how anxious he may have been for the appropriation to pass ae could not consistently or honestly ask that the tickets be printed with he word for alone There is too much of this effort to fool the people We should have a proposition fairly and no matter how worthy he object if the people vote against t the minority should be satisfied tlr Oberly did just right in not ad rising that the tickets should bo in a form other than that corresponding with the law and to get a fair expression of the of the people in baft and by tie can constantly at tt Appropriation The tickets furnished by the lican state central committee very generally printed with only tne word opposite the state house appropriation The Springfield ple democrats as well as republicans are cursing John H Oberly chairman of the democratic state central com because he insisted on ing both for and against on his party's and thus defeated tho appropriation Being Sociable Some people display wonderful tact for unsociability It is not so much by their silence their modesty or their re- serve as by a peculiar disposition they indefinable atmosphere in which they envelop themselves so as to repel the advances and resist the tions of others Indeed silence is not inconsistent social feelings and those who say little and listen much and well ate always popular society It was Hiss Edgeworth after talking with and incessant volubility to a deaf mute for hour remarked that he was the most gent and interesting person lie ever met Oftentimes those who tulk most have the least real Their hides their utter want of and personal sympathy prattle is purely selfish mechanical and cold Volubility and vacancy teem to be related to each other and times the tongue is the substitute for thought instead of its organ ty and loquacity may coexist in the same person but the one who talks the most thinks and feels the least True sociability is a mattei of ment of mind of character rather than of words It comes from a surplus of sympathy of kind feelings of personal regards of contagious interest in things and thoughts Jt is the overflow of the generous and qualities of the heart those which make us social beings those which bind us most closely and tenderly and to the family to which we belong Alt real interest in others all quick ami generous sympathy all desire to communicate with others and share in their experiences and in their life enter as constituents into a true sociability The Gamins Game At about eleven o'clock this a little newsboy dodged out of board of trade alley and neut light under the
