Monday was a day of seemingly gnr> c'leer for the Democratic leaders ot Snlli v n county. The Committee meetin .v is well attended. The meeting itse' wis exclusive and private. All the doon w.-re barred and carefully guarded. W lu< t anspired is only known by the liapp hind that left their secret quarters shal • ng hands with each other in excellet i c leer. The harmony pie was excessivi i size, every one seemed satisfied will t teir piece which was evidently cut larg«. I'lie only danger remains that they ma lave got an overdose of harmony pie to. highly »• isoned tor digestion. After tin ueeiing adjourned a good many ol' hatchets were buried in a liquid gravt •ver Gallagher's hotel bar. It was a da; •»f much joy for Democracy. The War Situation. The story of ihe lust six weeks, so far jn the administration it co icerned, is that o energy, patriotism and zeul. Whateve falls we shall not be taken uuawnros. Tin overumeiit has likewise shown the sp!en lor of moral power in its restraint am -elf-respect—no wantonness, ,io liybi liearied waltzing toward war, no injustici io rash vemure; and yet there may b siern, sad work ahead, and no momen ias been lost in the preparation for tl>. loing of it. This readiness we owe to the Prrsiden I'lien why not trust the President? 11. done k' OWN ihe whole case—what w. owe to our dignity, to humanity, to oui unbroken frienilship with Spain, lo a <h - cent respect for tbeopiMions of niankind. lias an hour been lost in seeking the trull and in preparing for whatever duty trut! may impose? The President has beei trusted thus far. Why not trust him to the end. What would be our position if tin policy ot yellow journalists, Jacobins ami revolutionary juntas had prevailed, were there not men like Allison in the Senate, Reed in the House, McKiulev in the ex ecutive chair? At its best war is a fearful thing. The country has been upset b\ the mere rumors of war. Western gentlemen demand war be c ittse the prairies are on fire. And yit why not trust the President. We have a sieady-headeJ murinerat the helm. Then has been no mistake as yet. Why slam pedethe American. The crime of tin Maine shall have reparation and expia tion. Massacre and starvation in < übt> will cease, the burning chimney next dooi will be extinguished. And if in answei to our moderate demands war should come it will be a war of vindication, ot humanity, the solemn, sober act ot a christian people. Therefore let us trust the President. 11 the outcome is peace it will be peace with honor. If otherwise, then it will be a war which will bring no sliuine. Atty. F 11. Ingham alter a few days work in the town of Beruice secured thir ty-four names for an application for a charter to organize a camp of the "Pa triotic Order Sons ol America" at Betnice and March 31 -t was chosen as the time tor instituting of the same.

Karns culled the meet ing io order and alter at pointing visiting members to fid the different stations pro tern he commenced the work of institution. Mr. Taylor consented togo through the imitation ceremonies so the otiier mem bers of Hie Bernice camp took the obliga tion and then Mr. Taylor was introduced lor imitiation much credit is due the veil ing Brothers for the successful carrying on ol the imitiation. The officers of the new camp were then introduced and Dis trict Pres. Karns installed them intotheii various stations. When the time for verbal communications came several re- S|ionded. Everybody present was much impressed by the good sound and well chosen remarks that were given by Bros. J. S. Taylor, outsine boss of the Bernice nines.
