Review (Newspaper) - November 21, 1882, Decatur, Illinois THE MORNING REVIEW. VOL. V. DECATUR, ILL.. TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 21, 1882. TALMAOE calls whisperers, "ped dlen of night shade, peddlers ol Canada thistles, peddlers of nnx Hos. GROVER CLEVELAHD, the popu- lar governor elect of New York, was onceanowsboy in New York city. Boya, take courage! "How long, Oh how will the Republican and the bosses oppose giv- 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 Olyraer, 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 demo- cratic, Clerk McPhereon will doubt- less give way to Rainey, the colored brother, for the clerkship. Mc- Pherson wants it only when there is a majority to elect. He is for the colored brother all the time when empty hotiors are handed around.'' MRS. of Harrisbnrg, 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 Republuan 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 demo- cratic candidate wants an office to which lie has not besn elected. The democrats of Mae >a couuty d> want to have all the votes counted that were cast for their candidates. CHARLEY WHITAKER, of the Ma- comb Eagle gives some good advice to the democrats of this ptate on fpnee building. He says. advice to democracy in Illinois: Build your political fences higher as soon as possible. There IB a swarthy and breechy 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 riJly from the severe shoes he will be looking around for an opportun ity to jump into the democratic party. Keep up your fences! The democratic party can't stand Ben Bntlor 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 lordy! Can it stand the pressure0 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 ap- 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 twenty! With this evident error in the 1st ward, the RepMcan 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 abontihe -great this- they want itncnfeb the manner "So not It appeal's to have been tho policy of the _ state house people to have the tickets printed, with the word duly, on the proposition to ap- propriate money for tW" 'completion of tho state house. Tho regular re- publican ticket of this county was so printed. Mr. Oberly had noth- 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 wesented, 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 >rinted in a form other than that corresponding with the law, and cal- culated to get a fair expression of the ientiment of the people. OTDTMI, in baft and by tie can, constantly cm- btkod at RMMu tt -ik'-i t-f Htate Appropriation. The tickets furnished by the repub lican state central committee very generally printed with only tne word opposite the state house appropriation. The Springfield peo- ple, democrats as well as republicans, are cursing John H Oberly, chairman of the democratic state central com mittee, because he insisted on print- 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 invita- 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 cbaraimg and incessant volubility to a deaf mute for :in hour, remarked that he was the most intelli- gent and interesting person "lie ever met Oftentimes those who tulk most have the least real sociabilitj. Their hides their utter want of tf-eliug and personal sympathy. 'Iheii prattle is purely selfish, mechanical and cold. Volubility and vacancy teem to be nat- urally related to each other, and often- times the tongue is the substitute for thought instead of its organ. Sociabili- ty and loquacity may coexist in the same person; but geneially the one who talks the most thinks and feels the least. True, sociability is a mattei of senti- 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 toothers 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 par- ticipate in their life, enter as constituents into a true sociability. The Gamins' Game. IChicagoNens} At about eleven o'clock this moining a little newsboy dodged out of board of trade alley and neut light under the heels of a spirited horse attached to a stylish buggy. He was knocked down and the wheels passed over him. A yell went up, a crowd gatheied, nnd in a couple cf seconds the lad was the center of a group of indignant citi- zens, who demanded the immediate an- nihilation of the man in the buggy, who drew up his horse, jumped out, and, ap- parently filled with sorrow, approached the howling gamin to ascertain the ex- tent of his injuries. "Is there anything I can do for you, my poor exclaimed the gentleman as he bent over the yelling arab. me a came the an- swer in tones which welled up from the billowy depths of an ocean of sobs. A roll of bills was hauled by the gen- tleman from his pocket, and a "V" placed in the hand of the boy, who ap- peared at once to regain full energy, and leaping to his feet, he went down the alley with a cipvd, yclliiig "Divvy 1" close to his heels. The gentleman entered his carriage and drove off, while the other gamins nround the board of trade resolved themselves into a committee who are to take turns in being run over, and give proper bonds to "wnack up." Paying Ibc Doctor. A stranger journeying in France fell side unto death; his friends called in a physician who demurred about giving his professional services, fearing the wherewithal might not be forthcoming to settle his bill. The friend, producing a hundred franc bill, said: "Kill him or cure him, this ia yours." The rick man died and wan buried and the Doctor, finding hia money slow to appear, reminded the survivor of the debt. "Did yon cure he asked. "No, sir." "Did you kill "Certainly "Ihen yon have no claim on me, sir; I wUh you good day." t'cnuMjUuniu Klcctuu.

Carlisle of Kentucky, "till stands al the head of tho list, but there are at least a dozen who may be counted as struggling for that honor.

Among those who- may menwmfel as candidates are Messrs. Carlisle, Randall, Cox, Springer, Eaton, Holraan, Blount, Morrison, Hurd, Tucker, and more coming.
