Reso la Tjon the following is a special Resolution adopted by the Washington county sunday school convention at the close of their two Day s meeting Here Las week a in As much As this is a critical year for the cause of Temperance in Iowa and in As much As one of the leading political parties Lias in the Field As candidate for governor a Man who in tile estimation of All Temperance organizations is decidedly wet Ami whose record As a legislator the Blini of \ nation. Nan for shows issues stands Quot tilt ref Ore place ourself such candidates Ami decidedly in in against Many of the ii ii the sunday school be it resolved that we s on re lord As favouring Only As Are openly favor of advanced Temperance Laws and Law enforce to it. A further be it resolved earnestly advocate regular thematic study of Temperance in the sunday schools throughout the county that we and svs amusements a in old Kentucky Quot with its jockey Riding heroine its mint Julip Loving colonel its pick Ninny brass band its double Quartetti and its thrilling melodramatic scenes will be seen at the Graham on tuesday october 21. The production is ays Penetac ular one and the elaborate presentation delights the audience. The play should play to big business Here for it is always popular and the presentation this year is particularly satisfactory. It was just 20 years ago that a in old Kentucky Quot was first seen. Many thousands of theatregoers have seen it since then and Many thousands of dollars have been made by it for its owners and its author diaries t. Dazey. Manager Brillion beat Fairfield by Igo in receipts for the birth of a nation which was Given Here three Days and nights. There were six entertainments and each House was packed. Practically no More seats were for Sale As All were taken each time. Which shows that people will pay for a show if they want to see it. And to save us we Annot see what All this Hub bub was about. First the coloured people raised an objection to it and then the old soldiers and honestly and candidly we cannot see where either faction had any kick coming. There was a bad negro that is trite in Gus the renegade but even the negroes themselves do not deny that there Are bad ones among their people just As there Are very bad White men. Who could be More ornery than the Low Down whelp the renegade White Captain so it balance s there and As to the Enion soldiers it seems to us that the scene there in the Valley where the old comrades who wore the Blue Dwiere they Rescue the Cameron family of former rebels that is vindication enough for the soldiers of the North we Hope we can see All sides of the Case and honestly we see nothing but veneration for the Good Soldier and for the Good negro All the Way through and execration for the bad in All men. There is a love Story running through the play As it is in the Book. The Clansman by Thomasr is rather an impossible love Story and still a Good Many just like it did occur. The camerons of Columbia s. �,., and the Stoneman a of Pennsylvania go t mixed up by cupid and mostly the entanglements Are straighten cd out and everybody lives happily Ever after. Of course we take it that everybody recognizes the fire eater Stone Man As Thaddeus Stevens who is not an admirable character either in the play or in history. Stevens Iii history was opposed to about All that Lincoln stood for. His conduct towards the vanquished South was responsible for much of the harm that grew out of reconstruction for it must be admitted that reconstruction Cost the South dear the Kun flux flan grew out of necessity and gainsay it As we will we of the North would have done just As did the people of the South Orth we Likely would have done it quicker we do not approve of Tho method of the Kun flux flan hut neither do we approve of tin Moil at Lima Ohio that a month ago. Nearly murdered a sheriff because he would not allow a negro to he lynched or of the mob in Kansas that lynched a White murder it it a. 11 moan nature is much the 1 same the world Over and neither clo we approve of tile anti horse to Lief society that we used to have in Iowa organized for the purpose of Lynching horse thieves. We heard judge Willetts of Tama Tell about the Lynch Ings at the state meeting at Dubuque ask him about it and he is an old Soldier. And wre might cite the California vigilantes of the fifties if More proof were needed that folks Are folks wheresoever you find them. As for Silas Lynch the mulatto we do not know of an exact historical counterpart for him although there was a senator Bruce from Mississippi if we err not and other Black congressmen and while some of them had ability others were hog ignorant As they had Glenn Chandler bought the Dennis a re it to he. History says there were Brown property monday for $2400, t so to fudges in reconstruction Days cheap As dirt for a Man who wants Wio could not read or write and yet a Little Home and yet Well sold they heard trials against their former under the circumstances. Howard irn asters or owing is for we do not Kerr ran it to $2390 and quit. Glenn recognize the word masters. We do not also bought two lots nearby for $250. Uphold anything that would discredit the coloured people for they have a hard time now arum we Admire Many of the Well to do negroes for they have done Well with All their handicaps but there is no use in getting All worked up about the birth of a nation when it seems to us it really teaches a valuable lesson in the horrors of War. In the film Silas Lynch becomes a lieutenant governor of one of the states and finally proposes marriage to Elsie Stoneman. That is not historically Correct for we do not recall that history says Stevens even went South to live and we do not know that lie had a daughter hut the incident hid occur Dwiere a mulatto wanted to marry daughter although the name. Some of know it. Ii is a fact also that it was a mistake to coddle tin negroes As the carpetbaggers did. Ii was the worst thing that could have happened the slaves. They had Freedom and Power that they did not know How to use. Booker t. Washington discovered that and preached Industry a an antidote. Ile taught them that work was what would make them free. And not idleness. And so what Good is there in shutting our eyes to facts the characters who represent Coin and Lee and Grant All do their parts mighty Well. It is very interesting and instructive they show tile surrender scene at Appomattox splendidly. They also give the seem where Lincoln signs tile emancipation proclamation and Likely it also is historically Correct. The scene where the renegade Gas bunts Down the Little girl who rather than be taken throws herself to her death Over a precipice this is thrilling and arouses the crowd to loud j cheers when Gus is taken anti lynched this is done very subtly and licht Walt Canh a i much is left to inference hut it also Lleni we i Butch. A history although no exact incident has occurred like it. The Only thing that might arouse prejudice is the fact that the crowds seem to it it become aroused at the refusal of col. Cameron to shake hands with the mulatto Lynch and when he is thrown out of office arid when anything tsp Down that proves the Ascendancy of the White race. We a1 know this feeling exists. We All know that none of our hotels in Washington will allow negroes a place to stay. We All know that no negro Ever serves on a jury we All know that no store would hire a negro clerk we All know that Booker t. Washington at his Hest could not have been elected Road supervisor in Washington county yet whether it is Wise emf birth of a nation. Our our Way feel it will make him a splendid Home. Glenn a father was up to attend the Sale. Macon Seth it in record time a smart Boot a White Many a we do not recall our readers May Here we show one of the fall season s newest and most admired boots. A Boot that has a Classy air of superiority in every feature of artistic Boot making. A Boot that is in a class by itself. Leather of Black Luster k i a Beautiful perforations Blind eyelets and Welt soles. $3.50, $4.00, $4.50 was the attraction at the opera House during the last three Days of last week and i take this column in the Washington Democrat to thank my friends and patrons of the opera House for their Liberal patronage. You have not Only helped me in this but you have helped me to place Washington and the surrounding co mourn Ity among the most up to Date and wide awake people of our state. The place where i want the people to stand and on the account of the great Success that the birth of a nation met with in Washington it assures us of other great features that Are to follow which never go to Tow us except those that have up to Date Heaters in which other great attractions Are shown. The manager of the com puny was highly pleased with the business they did Here and he was also surprised he had heard that there1 were some kickers in Washington but he was convinced before he left that we were practically a United people and we Catt anything Good came into midst we were ready to give up Money to see it and that is the we want these great producers to and they wont hesitate to Send us the big productions. Considering the capacity of our House the mans Ger of the company did not think it possible for us to beat Fairfield but when he counted the receipts last saturday night he found we had heat fair Field about $60. Hut had we Only had the seating capacity we world trave Eoln up to the receipts of the larger cities i think i will do All i can to have them come Back to Washington and play a return Date for i believe Many who saw it this Tim will Wain to see ii again and i would hate to have any one die that lives Iii ibis Community that could not say when asked in the great beyond if they had seen the birth of a nation that would have to report that was one of the great sights they had missed while on Earth. I have now seen it six times and would like to see it that Many More. It is like a three ring circus there is so much Hun it is impossible for you to see ii All at one i Hue. I am feeling pretty Good Over the Success we had with this great picture it is proof to my that the people Are with me in my Effort to make Washington one of the most up to Date towns in the state. This is our Home and we want living in the county to feel that we lire a big family it it of men a Tometi and children living together and Washington is the Center of the Home where we can meet for our amusements and entertainments. Ii brings us in touch with each other and we get acquainted and by in doing become More attach cd to one another and in time we will become a United people which the creator of All Good intended we should he. Washington has a lug name. It have beaten our sister counties in a financial Way on the Chautauqua program and again we come out ahead on the receipts for the birth of a nation. If we stay United there is no telling our possibilities. I enjoyed the Union spirit which was so strongly manifested at the Chautauqua especially when the different ones of our Community were speaking on the future of the Chautauqua there was no division when a person arose to speak others listened lie did not consider sects or creeds we were of a unit working for a Good cause. I do not think i Ever saw or. A. It. Miller feel More enthusiastic than he was when he succeeded in Selling the last 1000 tickets for the coming year. Tin Union of any people will always bring results and make them feel As a. R. Miller expressed himself As feeling at that time. A United people is what we want and that is what i Ani asking for both spiritually and citizen Union that All May be blessed. I enjoyed the Praise of tin old soldiers As they rejoiced Over the fact that they had been used and Many had Given thir jives for the preservation of the Union. We also applauded the seem of the surrender of general Lee to general Grant was beautifully staged in the birth of a nation i heard a Titan say he Felt tire that every person who saw the birth of a nation would certainly he a better citizen. It surely showed us what it meant to be a divided nation and what a hell Hole War was. Slier Man certainly had ii right when he said War was Heil and i would add these words the Devil is tin author of sin it terrible tinted which hot brings about in his Devilish work of Divis Sefc therefore from now on let tis we Ork for the Union in every report in this Beautiful county where we have been placed that others May see the Good by being United ii is True we Are United As a people of earthly interest and wily can t we he the same spiritually. W of Brinton �?~tvtf4 i Arrow shots f t i shot an Arrow into the air it fell to Earth i know not where Longfellow. T factors May not be Able to do much acting hut they can at least smoke cigarettes artistically 1 a Young professional Man does not appreciate very much the business people give him just a because they think he needs in a group of working men. It is not hard to detect the Foreman. On a Job the Man who knows his work always stands out. You have people from when it is want to do. No trouble in keeping butting into your work something they do not we do not want around with his oat a working on. Man How easy it is to when they have an get a folks to talk to grind. Some people just too much As some As naturally talk talk too Little. The m he be of the Soi i by Bishop Quayle of St. Louis be to of every Polleti Ciamp likes to ills a organization a by does not amount to much. Talk about usual in ii most people table manners. Haven to very Good even a horse doctor sonic pretty Tough looking May drive horses. Our idea of soviet it lug humorous. Is to see a horse doctor go to doctor horses in an automobile a11 y a Lack we g rest in in Prince Albert coat looks out of place that not Are impressed daily with the number of tight people then the world forget the Advance in Cost of leather until you Beautiful boots we prices that Are still ble and satisfactory. The see offer at reason the Friend of your left goodness gracious Alives we just wonder where Johnny Roth s find All the Good things to eat Tho they serve w Hen a lot of us starved town folks go Down last thursday evening they had about 25 there and we nearly ate them out of House and Home or we thought Soli they had had an equally big company Friday night or Munday they would never have known what we ate them out of. Mrs. Roth arid Lier daughters certainly do make Folk feel at Home if tables of Good things Are any sign and Johnny is the most courteous Host in Washington county there May be More delightful places to go although we do not know win re they would in Henry Bieber cd j. Wilson and Schuyler Livingston did no to show very Good manners at the table in regard to the amount they ate hut Schuyler is most to blame sin e he also told his Turkey Story to a helpless crowd of thu ladies who could not get away. Otherwise the conduct of Abe visitors was rather Good. Ltd the people the most Are from w Horn Yon sex pet t Apt to fool you. No Mechanic gets a enjoys looking his Trade in old Lull what at Good tools of a Good Shine will make almost any old shoes look pm to Good. How easy it is with some people to pick a quam tin most enjoyment of some who think they Are Rich is they and to afford things that body else is doing. People to say every we Are daily amazed at the number of worthless books lying around. Nothing is As rare As a Good meal i a if Tekl y Sohal. Wednesday afternoon a Hospital Benefit serial will be held in the basement of the new methodist Church. The committee in charge is mrs. He f. Derbyshire mrs. E. B. Hammer mrs. C. C. Wilson mrs. Joe Meehin hey mrs Howard Mccreery and they Are making plans to have a splendid time a program will he Given and there will be new Talent refreshments will he served and a Silver offering taken. You Are cordially Iii cited to attend. Der apes la to to Axle grease to pails from lbs at the fair to picture these things is for somebody else to determine besides this scribe. But it is a great scene a great production and anybody makes a mistake who misses it and we do not mean to offend any old Soldier by saying every old Veteran in Washington county ought to see it. Watermelon Day at Conesville was surely a Success if a Rowel counts for anything they had several thousand people in the Little Village and there were watermelons to Burn. Of course they did not Burn them hut they ate ail they could and wasted More than they ate if seemed a pity hut it is about Ute Only Way to have a Watermelon Day Likely melons should he As free As air. Surely they were free enough at Conesville we met a. E Nicholson or. Halverson or Adams and a Good Many others whose names we did not set Down my we forgot them. Broth Meek of the City schools was tic speaker in the Forenoon and tile methodist preacher also but we did not get there till after dinner was Over and we missed out on the roast of Humphrey Richards went along As Pintas adviser and it anybody tells you he worked for Meredith do not believe if i talked Harding so fast and so hard that in almost converted the entire Community. Anyhow lie is Good travelling companion As he knows everybody Over there and everybody knows him. Doc the safeguard took pity gave us our dinner at a where we got i Quot Hest dinner we have had since a Pup. We got him to go Conesville and to knew everybody there and was a bully travelling pal also. We tried to induce shot Arr of the Gazette to go toe hut we la Hove to was afraid to go for fear he would have to listen to a speech that he did not want to hear. Bro. Younkin of Ute Lone tree reporter also Hon Ort us with Ilia presence and stuck it out like a hero although he swore he would not listen to anybody he and Doc both deserve crowns for listening to us. And we shall see that they get their Reward. Conesville people Are surely very cordial and courteous people and we must say a like them out of sight. They have a pretty Little town there and a lot of Fine folks and we must not forget congressman Harry Hull who heard us through and we Uke him bully the Democrat is indebted to mrs Caldwell for the following excellent report of Bishop Quayle stalk at Brighton on september la a i am glad to talk to you this morning of the Public school my father and Mother were foreigners hut i was Horn in the country and attended the Public schools. A in school we learn that 141 Square inches make a Square foot. Life is not to superficial measure. Life is cubic measure it has length and breadth and depth or height a the in United states a maintains the Public school for the purpose of making folks not artisans. What is the objective of a school it might to train Road nickers it might be make a race of editors or a race teachers it might be to equip people for amassing Money these would be All right it would he Good but in a Small Way. The object is to develop a robust soul to make people big enough Ami Worth while enough and Good enough to go alone. Where some people a there is goodness and gladness and safety. Here in Iowa. And also Iii other places we talk a great Deal about the weather we say it is hot weather or it is cold weather it is dry Voeuth or or we Art having too much rain we Are not imparting information everybody knows it even your nose knows it when it is cold it projects out into the weather and tells you is it eld. Ii is a felicitous greeting but the thing we want is somebody to it come along who will create weath there enough cheer in us to bring Sunshine in All kinds of weather the making of the soul is tin bus Ness of the school i love the Public school i was taught in Hie Public school i have sent my Hildren a it the Public school i Ani heartily in sympathy with Iii Public school by i Gay to you that unless tile Public school can get brains enough to know the business cd the school it had better not to maintain a Public school if it is purely utilitarian. Character is More than vocation anybody with a great soul Etui do a thing and make it a Beautiful us an auge whether it is painting to picture or writing to Hook or making to Horn the matter of educating tin brain and forgetting heart is to damage Ami danger to America when the Public school teat hog people to read and write Ami make suing Ami teaches of common matters a of to get along in the world if anybody thinks that is the business of the pubic school he is mistaken. The world Dies from failure of heart not of brain every nation that Ever stumbled died of the income Tiu Ami badness of the heart. It is Good to be Able to do things Well and of lit i Low shall i in a Man Ami Strong Ami Worth while any where in the universe is tin important thing this world is the i irs place a it ome to on our journey not the last. It is Here we Are born it is Here we must labor it is Here a must suffer Ami work hut it is first syllable in the great life. He Are learning her flounce the first syllable in of life. Character can not to achieved with out god it is Worth while to be a Man or a woman when we Are a husband or wife or Iii whatever we do. It is not essential to know when we die or Why we die. Hut it is essential that while we live we live a Man and that win n we die we die a Man. There is no time to wait for death. Tin Superb thing in tin universe of god is that when a Man is Here the world is better for his being Here and that when he goes a Man goes and when in comes a Man comes. It is of More value what Shadow a Luau casts than what Structure he builds. Brains Are ail right hut you can accumulate so Many of them and they do us so Little the brai Niest in to Are would not be Able to they Are and do As it they were not so the function of this is the time to select that new suit so Ner ones a St in by Tim highest nou Lukes Ake i a Fth Ess.

His pupils loved him wherever he went people loved Hill he was a worker in tile sunday school the Leader of the Young Peoples society the Epworth league was at the head of the boy grouts interested in the Chautauqua and ten welfare of the Community he was everywhere in ought to be and no where he ought not to be. Ile was out working in Lite Hay Field Only a few Days before he left us we sometimes wonder wily a Man should be taken that is so useful in the Community who is big enough i and Broad enough to have a vision of tin work needed when there arc those that we could get along without in fact the Community would be better without them.

I invite people to god not because they might die hut be cause they might live i you learn to live you do not need to learn to die. Death is not so much As the fluttering of to feat la so from a Birds Wing compared with being prepared to live forever. Make yourself Worth while. I do not want to preach but you can say in great word without preaching. I believe with All my heart in the Public school. I believe that Alt the children of our baited states should he Iti tin Public school do not Send your children to a private school where they will he patted on tin head Ami caressed. Send them to the Public school and let them have discipline. The laces of t in Public school children of America Are to be turned toward eternity not toward the House of riches not toward the House of making a living hut they Are to have their faces wisely turned toward eternity. Teach the pre Eminence of soul life of influence the Worth wholeness of being Good. We teach a boy that try it and two make four bul when he gets into business he May want two and two to make three or two and two to make five or Twenty five. He must be taught More than that two and two make four. The things we do not teach Are of More importance than those we do teach. Let us learn not to be the getter of the most we can hut the giver. It is to lot of fun and a lot of Beauty to he nurturing your soul so that if some one wakens you out of a sound sleep your first impulse is to smile and say Good morning although it May not be morning at All but the Middle of the night. When Ute hotel clerk Calls you out of to sound sleep in time to catch Mir train the you instinctively say urn awake thank you or do you just snarl out something be extern-1 a Iraneous in character. Cultivate the try of being thoughtful when you arc not trying to be thoughtful do not think the soul is so feeble that it Dies at the end of tile summer. It grows through the age like those notice i he season tickets for the Community lecture course Are now on Sale at Mcelhinney a drug store. All persons who have subscribed f o r tickets can insure themselves a Good seat reservation by calling for the same at earliest possible moment. A. W. Hadley Sec.
