NORTHAMPTON, Saturday, April More money Is being spent in this county in petty post-office rows than would carry or defeat the constitutional prohibitory amendment, The edict has gone forth that no need apply; that fitness for office, or the wishes of patrous of the office are secondary consideratious, and yet petitions are continually filed but. to no effect unless the "machine's" stamp 1 affixed. Congresswan Wallace is boving a bard time of it and this week transferred his. from Washington to Fitohburg in the hope of getting de little respite, but he will only get deeper the mire. Before he left for the city of "aspirations and disappointments" he promised to consider some of these postal questions upon business principles and be meant just what be said, 'but when he reached Washington and got into the whirl of politics he dropped his business methods and party behests took the Then ex-Congressman Whiting left.

a few, antin: isbed contracts. and legacies from Which there was no escape. Indeed, it is patent that Whiting is still blow or which it is difficult to say. This week Williamsburg people, bearing nothing from the Florence aud Amherst fights, are actually circulating petitions asking that Moses Brals, who bay done excellent service as postmaster and is generally to all parties, be re-appointed. They formed, that caroms when up the to facetious Wallace, as "Peter," he wrote alias from Washiugton, when be went down with the Home Market club, "just to put a flea in Lis ear," and hoarsely whispers that Beals is democrat, VOX populi will be cast to the winds.

That the Jameses are to gay is to become postmaster of "Burgy" Das been understood for a long time and the poor people may be Vanderbilted or not as they see fit. H. L. James, having the more comely and "ministerial beariug, is to have the honors, which he can carry with such sweet grace, while Lyman the. "practical" political member of the firm, is to do the work, draw the salary and have the office in his store, as it was before the wicked democrats came into power.

Mr James has started a petition also, but Beals will have by far the largest percentage of patrons of the office. Here is the way a leading republican senses the sit-' nation to-day: Many of us sign. for. Mr. Beals who do not like to antagonize Mr James but can't do otherwise on looking at the matter as uppartisan men and desiring the fair and aquare thing done after Mr Beals has lost his other business and serves us well it in this; and when ver changed simply goes 88 political pop and honor, for party work." Indeed, it is whispered that the firm have an eye on the Haydenville office, where they also have a store, and will soon make.

their wants and known. The Florence manufacturers are still wrestling with Mr Wallace, and the postoffice in that village is still without an off'cial head. Gen Otis, who unwittingly signed Branch's petition, bas been putting in big work for Parsons, and Wallace has indorsed Mr Parsons's petition, and the latter's friends are getting nervous because the nomination has not been made. Mr Kyle has been in Washington again for 10 days pulling wires right vigorously for Branch, but the party machine is' bigger than the people for the present. Word has been sent on from the ruling powers that if every man, woman and child of village, irrespective of party, should ask shat Branch, a democrat, be appointed, it could not be done.

Locally the republican party will get a black eye, whatever the outcome of this bitter and costly fight, but a few thick-beaded machine men either can't see it or don't care so long as they win in the present tight. At Leeds, they are going through the same foolish motions of asking that Warner, a democrat, be re-appoiuted. They might 23 well ask that Mill river be turned around. The change iu that place made so much feeling three years ago that a deal of the mail does nut go through the oflice. Warner may at well make his peace with Edson Ross, who formerly held the office, and.

let him have the fixtures at'a low tigure or throw them into the junk-pile. No dewocrats Deed apply this year, even if indorsed, as Couch is, by pretty much the whole faculty of Amberst college. There is some criticism going the rounds because Sheriff Ciark and the county commissioner do not provide some sort of labor for are senteuced prisoners to in hard the labor, county and Jail. They yet lowed to sit about the corridors and tell stories. Such a life is only a breeder of idleness and crime, rather" than 8 check to it.

In answer to these criticisms, Sheriff Clark shows a big bundle of correspondence to show that he has done what he could to provide employment and that be is not to blame. The state superiutendent of prisons has also been looking about and wrote only the other day that nothing could be found. So little 19 paid for canc-seating or harness work, and under the law, the couuty must pay for an instructor, while the work-shop being isolated from the main building would be expensive to beat, that the county would be out a considerable sum in trying to keep the few prisoners employed. Something way. be found In a few weeks, but there is nothing cortain about it.

The great blunder was when the jail was built in locating in such a thickly settled spot, where ground enough for a garden could not be found. Had it been built in connection with a comtortable farm the men could bave been employed advantageously to thewselves and with profit to the county. The Knights of Labor have sent iu protests against employing the men on the peuurious wages offered by contractors, and suggested scheme of keeping the men at work on the couuty roads. llow they could be kept at work on open roads without a company of guards, where they were to board when heyond reach of the jail, and bow much more expensive such a scheme would be to the county, were questious not answered by these gratuitous advisers. There is a poticeablo indifference and anathy upon the prohibitory amendment question which bespeaks a liglit vote on the 22d.

There will be a little more- of a stir in The liquor Dicu and those who are antagonistic to the movement do not seem digposed to do anything, evidently resting in the belief that the amendment will be lost any way.

BASE-BALL IN FRANKLIN COUNTY. Good Nupport at Turners Falls nad MilJere Fails- Methodist Pas. tor at Greendeld-A Sitting of Court-Sermous and Lectures. From Our Spectal Correspondent. Saturday, April G.

Judging from the preliminary games at Turners Falls and Millers Falls Fast day, lovers of the national game have plenty of enjoyable sport in prospect tho coming sea800. A meeting was held the other day at Millers Falls with delegates from Athol, Brattleboro and other places, taking the initiative steps toward the organization of a league made up of clubs in this vicinity, to insure two or three first-class games week through the summer. Nothing has beefi about getting up a strong team here In Greentield, for there is little material to build club upon, while the essential ingredient, plenty money, is wholly lacking. But Turhere Falls and at Millers Falls there aro plenty of wen who ure willing to contribute liberally to encourage such bealthy sport. At Millers Falls, Councilone, Gunn 1a the chief backer and he with others have put a nine in the tield which will make the chief rivals, the Turners Falls boys, bunt leather pretty lively to defeat again this year.

This club has been organized with the choice of E. L. Stockwell as president, Gavige E. Rogers secretary and treasurer, and E. W.

Brown manager. The Turners Falls team is backed by this organization: President, M. B. Allen; manager, A. Lamb; secretary and treasurer, F.

H. Brown; directors, Porter Farwell, 0. Crocker, Frank Marshall, James McAllister. G. Pefferle and Michael McAllister.

The opening games were attended by nearly people and were much enjoyed. No schedule of games has yet been arranged except that tho Millers. Falls team will soon gO off on a tour for a week with college and other nines. sermon at the Methodist to-morrow Rev G. M.

Smiley will oracle, his farewell and at the same time will baptize 12 persons and receive them the church. Of the 36 pastors who biato served this church. since its organizatiou, Mr Smiley is the second who bas stayed in town his full term of three years. There has been a larger gain lo membership, a larger salary paid, with greater gifts for general benevolence than during any previous pastorate for 20 years. Since he has beeu with the society an indebtedness of $2000 has been paid off and a $600 chapel has been built at the camp-ground.

Where ho will go from Greenfield not yet known, but it is rumored that more than one church in the vicinity of Boston has an eye upon this pushing young pastor; but a promineut churchman has said that if one or two of the churches in the vicinity of Springtield who have been coquetting with young men at the east end of the state understood mattery Inore fully, they would not overlook such good talent near at hand. Other prospective changes in connection with the Methodist conference include Orange, South Deerfield, Shelburne Falls, Charlemout, Heath, Rowe and perhaps Leyden and Coleraine. Nev. If.

Il. Paine of Sbelburno Falls has dove good work in that town and it is the wish of the people he nay return, but he way be called to a larger field. Ar Charlton, who has been for three years at Orange, is a hard worker and has secured a property for a church and parsonage site. Rev Ar Baird remains at Bernardston to complete biy term and Rev G. D.

Sanderson will remain at Conway. The supreme court will open its April sitting Tuesday, and while a lot of jurors have been summoned there will be nothing for thein to do, as there are but two cases on the list and these will be adjusted before Tuesday, so that the court will be more a matter of forin than anything else. Possibly thing way be said about the Randall murder case, which in justice to the boy and the public should have been tried long ago; but the continued sickness of Mr Bond is the reason that the case drags so. Capt Nickerson, successor to the noted Father Taylor in the Seamen's Bethel at Boston, will preach at the Second Congregational church to-morrow, in the absenco of the pastor W.
