Tb Cooalng Election.
As the time for electing certain officers
to serve the people of this State Is ap
proaching, a few words in regard to the
duty ot the voter may not be out of place.
Tlie elective franchise in the hands of peo
ple who understand and appreciate It at its
higltest value, is an inestimable privilege.
But when men use the high privilege of
the ballot without care or thought as to
tlielr duty in the matter, they might as
weli not have It at all. It is a -cpu'lar
delusion among the masses that they really
hate a choice in the selection of the candi
dates, when the truth is, tlie entire ticket
is ''to t Up" long before tiie time lor hold
ing conventions, by a few political shyste-,
fellows; too, who couldn't be elected dele
gates to a Ward meeting. As a general
thing, the tax-payers and the masses who'
reaJ.lv desire ftonestv.' lylnsttrltv1 and true
merit to be considered as (Qualifications in
selecting Candidates for office,' have no
part or lot ft the election. Those who
have riiost at stake In securing honest and
competent men to fill the offices remain at
home, instead of attending tlie primaries
and seeing rj ft lUnt representative men
arc sent from the precincts as delegates to
the county convention. II the substantial
men In tlie coiinty let the primaries go by
default, is it likely that the delegates sent
to the county convention will be re'prcsen'-
tative inen ? . And if representative men
... . . . .
not sent as delegates, is it likely that
j ; : , . : i . .
the Candidates clioseu by those delegates
will be the choice of the representative men
of the county ? Vet If the masses, year
after year, fall to dd their duty In this
matter, have they any right to complain if
sticks and even rogues sometimes get into
office? Every voter should feel that it
tils duty to attend the primaries, and assist
with Voice and vote in the selection of
honest, capable men as delegates to the
county convention, m$n: who are not too
timid to speak and vote against trickery
and deceit. In this way we may hope to
get the best men nominated for the posi
tions, men who wilt be the choice of the
people, and who will act for them con
scientiously. ' It anything, we should be
most particular In selecting candidates for
the Legislature first selecting men! who
are competent, who are able to distinguish
between a needed law and buncombe legis
lation ; who are not in the market, and
whose consciences will not let them sit In
the halls of the legislature from day to day,
idling away tlie people's time and money
to accompli-.h some party end. We want
men who know what is demanded by their
constituents, who are above party trickery,
and who will advocate the right with
judgment, without fear or favor. Until
the masses learn to estimate the high priv
ilege of the franchise, and come right up
to the mark tliemsclves, we may expect
to be burdened with high taxes, and offi
cials who, it not dishonest In the meaning
ot the law, will still wink at negligence
of duty arid useless extravagant and
waste of tlie people's money.
Rumor has it that the Baroness Bnrdutt
Coutts has determlnw fc' contribute 300,
000, or about f2.500.000, for tiie relief of
the Xa mine-stricken IrUh. If this be true,
the Baroness is the greatest philanthropist
and humanitarian ot which we have any
accouut la ancient or modern times. An
instance of charity on so magnificent a
scale the world has never saw. j Such a
iminirleeut gift has astonished the world,
ami some of the incredulous have intimat
ed their disbelief in the rumor. It there is
any doubt as to the gift, nothing more
unwise or cruel could have been conceived.
Tliepeople believing that so large a sum has
been donated for the suffering ones iu Ire
land, in addition to the large sums already
collected and forwarded, will begin to
think and ask : "What call i there lor
more charity? The famine district em
braces only a part of Ireland, and the vast
sums already collected ought to meet all
the exigencies of the occasion." Nothing
seems" more certain tlian that the distress
tor food in Ireland has not been overdrawn,
there lore it the7 rumor of the gift ot the
Baroness is but a hoax, the oor starving
Irish will be the sufiVrers as it will close
