' Important Postal Bill.. The house
committee, on post ollices nnd post
roads .has agreed to report favorably a
bill providing that letter carriers bo em
ployed in every city containing 5,000
inhabitants and. they may be employed
in places containing a population of

also, providing for tho issue of a special
ten cent stamp which will insure tho
immediate, delivcrv of a letter at any

In his speech in tho House he denounced

To the Northwest and the Par West,
Tho highway travel lias received
more Haltering notices from tho public
than the Chicago, Milwaukee and St.
Paul Railway, the pioneer short lino
and tho popular route to tho Northwest
ami tho far West. Whether one's
Mecca be Omaha, St. Paul, Minneapo
lis or Dakota, on tho different branches
of this much traveled thoroughlare, or
even if one's destination be to points
still more remote, it presents, without
a doubt, tho greatest advantages to
the traveler in his westward course.
Apart from its excellent road-bed, its
fine coaches, nnd the grand ecencry
through which it passes, its dining cars
and service nro probably tho most
sumptuous of any railroad in tho world.
Indeed, tho western lines, and notably
the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul,
fairly lead their eastern rivals in the
matter of comfoits administered to
their passengers, So that with statis
tics to show one's life is safer in the
average railway train than when sitting
in one's homo or when engaged in one'n
legitimate business, tho traveler who
places himself under the guardianship
of a well regulated railway may prose
cute his -journey with a feeling of
security and comfoit as great as when
lecliiung in his arm-chair amid his own
lares et jenates.

The Danville Investigation.
It is evident that tho investigation
of the Danville riots by the congres
sional commjttee will be a fruitless
labor. The witnesses on each sido will
contradict eacli other, the two parties
will make different and conflicting re
ports and the country will be none the
wiser, though the treasury will be poor

there is one incident ot tho trial,
however, that is worthy of notice. It
is tho attitude of Senator John Sher
man. When in 1870 he descended to
tho common level of a suborner of per
jury, tho presidency was the stake, and
the public, ltitciest in theissuc obscured
the enormity of the crime. IJut iu
this case he has.no object beyond a
qu-stionable partisan advantage, and
yet he appears not as a judge to deter
mine between conflicting witnesses,
but a a partisan urging and defending
the precarious issue of his side of the
In this case tho witnesses on one'
side are unlettered and iu most cases
dissolute and woithless negroes. On
the other tide tho business men, the
intelligent ani responsible white citi
zens of tho community give their re
membrances of tho incident. It is
doubtful if those negroes understand
tho solemnity of an oath, or realize tho
danger of perjury. A fair, impartial
and just judge would weigh these facts
in tho balance. Instead of that John
Sherman will employ all the subtlety
of his reasoning to submergo them be
neath tho covering of partisau rancor
ho will invent. Tho negroes who tes
tify to willul lies iu this case arc to bo
pitied. The senator who leads them
in tho path of perjury is to bo despised.
These arc the relative positions of tho
ignorant uegroes and senator John
Sometime agr there appeared in tho
Columbian an editorial on tho system
of electioneering as carried on in this
county. Thero was then, and is now,
on tho part of candidates and on tho
part of tho pcoplo a desire 'that it bo
broken up. It must bo very humiliat
ing for honest and respectable citizens
to travel over tho.eounty day nnd night,
associating with all kinds ot men, gen
orally tho lowest, begging for votes.
It is not only disreputable, but con
temptiblo and especially contemptible
whero candidates endeavor to buy tho
suffrago of thoso who aro ignorant of
its value, with money or whiskey. The
low politician solicits support in this
way and tho reputable citizen, who
alono is worthy of ollice, must do the
same thing, ho thinks. Tho farmer,
tho mechanic, tho professional man ;B
almost pestered to death and his time is
stolen from him by candidates. Tliero
is, however, n fear among country can
didates that if the system wero abolish
ed the benefits would all bo on tho sido
of tho town candidates. This does not
necessarily follow. If tho good citi
zens of this county would tako the
matter in hand, as they ought to do,
this Hung of disagreeable and disgrace
ful personal electioneering wouiil soon
ceaso to degrade our county politics
Hero is a way. Let every rcspectaolo
citizen make it his rule that whenever
and wherovor, in town or country, any
ono solicits his. vote, it shall be a stilli-
cient reason for not voting for tho man
thus soliciting him. Wu all look for
ward to next tall ns a tune of gieat
political excitement. Thero will bo
elected oflioers to various and respon
sponsible positions. Many of the can
didates are already in tho field. Ail
manner of tricks known to the low
politician will likely bo resorted to,
How much more pleasant would it
be for all if these men went about their
usual occupation (if that bo other than
tint ot n politician), save what monqy
thoy may have made, announce) their
candidacy iu the county papeis mid
let tho people nlone. The man who is
defeated would feel less sore. Tho
man who is elected would assume tho
ollieo to do his duty honestly and not,
ns Is often the case, to avenge himself
on some and to aid and avenge his
friends on others. Ho would havo tho
comciousnet-s that his election was tho
homst will of tho people and ho could

There will bo no olliccr elected in the

STHANOK APPEARANCE AND DIS
APPEARANCE. William Pnull and family, who wero
driven out of their homos in Powhatan,
Ohio, by tho flood havo arrived in
Wheeling, W. Vn. 'Ihey conliim thu
story of tho sudden mud geysers at
that nlaco on Sunday afternoon. Thov
say they broke through tho earth with
a loud report, and when tho lrightened
refuges went to tho spot from which
tho noise camothey found a dense mas
of sand, gravel, mud and other sub
stances issuing from a hoiu in the
ground about two feet in diameter
The mass was thrown up in the air to
a distance of fifty, and at times to n
height of one hundred feet. Tlio noiso
undo was like tho ritmbllngof a railroad
train crossing a bridge. It terrified the
nhabitauls and many ot them lelt tho
vicinity in a condition of great agi
tation. To add to tho general terror
another one burst through thu ground
and beiran to discharge tho samo ma
terial to a greater height than tho first,
and soon another appeared. 1 he rapid
appearanco of these strango pheno
mena inspired tho whole community
with terror greater than that which
the flood had excited, and many were
detained only by main force. It soon
became npparent that no others would
appear and a second examination was
made. A Mr. Ramsay was of opinion
that the discharge wns caused by
natural gas and iu furtherance of his
idea took fire to the placo with which
to test its illuminating capacity. Much
to his surprise, thero was no illumina
tion when lire was applied. Ho then
thrust his hand into the column and it
was almost instantly benumbed. Mr.
Paull says that two of these geysers
havo already disappeared, and when ho
left on Monday night tho other was re
ported as weakening rapidly.

this column a success. She should

It seemed to me, from the beginning
a bad piece of business and it placed
the editor-elect iu a very unenviable
position. The project I consider a
good one, but the manner of bringing

on this matter of teaching, let him
write them out plainly and 1 feel that
every paper in the county has sufficient
interest in our schools to publish them.
The press mid the schools aim, or at
least should, at the samo ends. Both
are educators. Tho press educates iu
a general way without any particular
regard for tastes, age, sex, religion,

schools aro hampered by all of these.

I believe that our institutes havo

We havo in our midst a Normal
School nritli, I believe, a learned and
'lho Orangevlllo Academy has sent

A scurrilous and
malignant article appeared in the col
umns of tho CoLUMiiiAN last week that
is calculated to do an injury to Moses
Markle who has recently received
license to sell beer. The article evi
dently is written in a bitter spirit to
injure the reputation of another. It is
replete with false statements that re
quire correction. Mr. Maikle never
allowed boys to drink cider at any time.
Nor a drunken man to havo auy. He
always kept a quiet, orderly house, and
those who wero disorderly received
cordial invitations to leave. No boys
were allowed to remain who were not
peaceable. Last Saturday he had a
grand opening and thero was no row
dyism manifested by any one, and no
parties were intoxicated.
The fight, spoken of by tho corres
pondent, came off in an alloy a few
doors abovo the saloon. Now, in the
name of conscience why should the
writer utter this malicious lie T There
are plenty of witnesses to prove all of
the above. Rowdyism is not tolerated
in Markle's saloon.
The whole thing is a concocted fab
rication to injure ono. who is a cripple
and who is struggling to make a liv
living. As long as Markle keeps a saloon as
he has done, euch malicious equibs will
do him no harm.
We insert tho above at the request
of Mr. Markle, as we have no desiie to
do any one an injury. We aro sure
that our correspondent of last week did
not intend what ho wrote to be either
"I'cmrilotH," ''malignant,'' maiieiou-',"
nor false, and if his statement was in
coirect he must have been misinform
