A Surprise LastThursday the friend a
of Mr. and Mrs. H. II. Hewitt gave them
a genuine surprise party at their pleasant
home on Ferry street. Meeting at the
retidence of D. P.Mason they walked in on
them unannounced, spending a very en
joyable evening, the first part of which
was passed In Mr. Hewitt's yard trying to
get into h's house, while one of the party
went to Mr. Hewitt's office where he and
his family were busy at some legal busi
ness that was rushing. "The affair ended
in a very nice manner all the same. The
proper way in such cases is to send some
one else's wife along with her knitting In
the early evening, when such embarrass
ments are done away with.
Getting Frightened. There It great
danger of an epidemic of smallpox In Mar

Editors Democrat !
The year It closed, and our religious re
vival ha closed. Since Mr. Moody left a
greater degree of quk-t reign. It ha been
a season of Interest and murh good ha
been done. From different tandpolnts
this religious wake-up Is ylewed. A lady
who was In attendance oOcn,remarked that
there were no solid word or net of charity
manifested for the destitute. The congre
gation wa wealthy and Influential In gen
eral, while there were many women who
had not s calico dress suitable In which to
appear at these meetings. This covered
the question of bread. If the evangelist
preached to these people to make them
more attentive to actual wants of the poor,
old and young, and to look after those of
youth surrounded with temptations, this
lady would have more respect for his work.
But why criticise when the fact f on the
face of the fashionable world that he who
hath not a dollar hath no soul to save. Do
ing of charity I pure religion. Talking
about religion, filling up tabernacles for
worship, and looking out for scl.to see that
all the good thing are at hand, to make
self fat and warm, come short of religious
obligation. It I the poor and needy who
should have our religion In substantial
gift. If we are deceived in this th J Lord
I not. The evangelist who goes Into the
highways and byways to find those who,
lacking In wealth and luxury ,but who need
spiritual comfort, is the messenger of Him
who had nowhere to lay hi head, hut who
was the only perfect type of a christian.
Great good will come from this work even
If it wa confined to those having all that
heart can wish. The conversion ef Judge
William I attrlbutrd by some to these
meeting, but the prevailing opinion and,
no doubt true one, Is.that he was prepared
for this confession by his wife, w ho has the
credit of being s firm believer and active
in what Is called christian science. This
be a It may the conversion wa timely.
For a man of over sixty year of age who
had"nevcr bowed the knee to God or man,"
may be pardoned for auch expression ot
opinion of hi countrymen in the South a
he ha made, for they were the tittcrance
of a heart of tone, one that had never felt
the generous pulsation of a christian spirit.
And in charity he I to be pitied, and may
that Savior, whom he thinks ne has found,
show him the folly, not to say shame, that
ha marked his bearing towards those who
are not willing to be governed by a race
Ith rare exceptions, whose prejudice,
Ignorance and superstition would make
them demon had they power over white
people. The Judge himself were he located
amon them would not tolerate this view
about which he delights to harangue, the
people to show hi party fcality, for one
moment If hi eyes and heart are open
may his friends keep the devil from clos
ing them, a thing which we fear the Judge
I too weak to do himself, as hit future po
litical crusades may prove. There are
others of hearts of stor.e ot the same party
needing conversion, prominent In party
meanness, in vlndlcUveness.and in social
uncheritablcnes. Can the Lord reach
them ? There l another Moody who Is
creating as much dry talk tn the political
arena as the evangelist has caused in his
circle. He wants to convert Dolph and
take hhn out of politics. But Dolph I
obdurate. The excitement i low but ris-
ing.and If Dolph' friend arc not generals
the battle will favor hi rival, who I en
trenched in more individual pit than 1
generally supposed. Being party within
party the conflict will be more intense and
less respectful than if with a common ene
my. It will be bitter in the mouths of those
who have no sweet morsels for a rival party
brother. And the Dolph men will bestow
In showing the majority which they have
for the reason that their favorite should not
have a walk over lest he would forget the
artisans that made him Senator. This as
surance may rest too long and the anti-
Dolph gopher liltls showing the mischiev
ous disposition of the anlmat may come up
in the night with astonishing rapidity to
make the battle formidable. Herman is
said to have tome strength, but the idea of
being a candidate seem a joke, a naked one
at that III friend will upport Dolph if
the chief I consulted. There I enough In
thi to give Dolph and friends great con
cern. It is an open secret that Moody is
not in accord with the brains of the circus,
He ha always shown a bawky disposition,
and thU is what prevented him from run-
nine for Governor a second time, and it
may prevent him from being Senator,
whether Dolph is elected or not. And
here Is where republicans show superiority
over democrats by having a strong head
and a solid organization, while democrats
hve no head or organized body for effec
tlve work. Hence their blunder, lfthey
succeed it is a blunder. But for patience
under difficulties no christian can surpass
them, in fact their own chrlti:uvforitude
has been the leading wonder or tneir ad
vcrarlcs for ' year. - The candidate to be
feared, and an unfortunate one for the na
tion If successful. Is ludtrc William Ua
may if the other faction destroy them
sje've, be the hore,and heaven knows the
color of it is dark enough. May this calam
itv never befall the state. There are two
candidates more deserving than any we
have mentioned, one of whom resides in
Benton county and the other in Jackson,
but there Is no pigeon maux for them
though they have earned it, Mr. George
it not without hope, though the accident
may come nearer to him than indications
now favor. Time will soon settle matters.
Mr. Simon will be President of the Senate,
and thl does not signify but Portlander
will be Speaker. If it is not too much of
a load to carry, with a Portland U. S
Senator to elect this will all come to pass.
We await returns.
