In 1M2 he was born in Armagh county, lieland, and canie to this country threc years later. In 1865 lie canie to Ann Arbor iïoni Whltewater, AVisconsin, and resided iu tlie Sixth Ward until four years ago, when lie moved to tlie old Ctiase place out on tlie south Ypsilanti road. There he died of general debiüty. The family remaiuing consists of liis wite and the children : Dr. W. J. Morton, E. J. Morton, Miss Maggie Morton, W. H. Morton and Mrs. Daniel Emerson of Wiseonsin. The funeral is to be at the house Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock. An active tempera nee campalgn under Dr. J. II. Conway, of Philadelphia, began in this city Sunday afternoon last. The work seems to be after the order of the moral suasion luoremcnt of six and seven years ago. Dr. Conway is a disciple of Francis Murphy, and introduces the blue ribbon as his badge. His aim is to draw away the drinkers froin their cups and induce young men and boj's never to begin the use of intoxicants. He seems to be a Christian man, and claims to expect no success without the help of God through prayer. He claims to be a gospel temperance worker and eniphasizes tlie necessity of drinkers seeking earnestly the help and grace of God to insure tlieir fwm Standing against the power of appetitc. In connection with his work cverywhere a mid-day prayer meeting is established. Aceordingly such a meeting is held in Firemens Hall each afternoon at 3 o'clock. On Sunday afternoon the hall was lillod to overflowing. Several of the elergymen were pïesent. io.v. R. B. Pope opened with reading of the sciiptures and prayer. Dr. Conway probably disappolnted some of his auditors by not giving one of his formal aldresses, but earnestly threw hirnself into the active work of his cimpaign by securing the signatures of nearly all who were present. Blue ribbons were flutteriug from most all tlie coats and dresses as the large audience dispersed. 334 sigaatures to the pledge were seeured. In tlve evening another fnll house, of those who do not ordinarily attend churcli, greeted Dr. C, and 00 more signatures were added. Monday, Tuesday and Wcdnesday niglrts have witnessed a full liouse, and the results of fourdaysis 1,157 signatuies. Dr. Conway has the power of tremendous work himself, and the faculty of setting others at work. He visits drinking men during the day and sees them at hi3 room. llis kindly manner and nobleness of lieart wins all with whom he comes in contact. One of the distinguishing features of nis work is the semling forth of an army of canvassers who go everywhere solicitIng signatures to the pledge and extending invitations to the meetings. It is hoped all good citizens will ericourage the good work by their presence and cooperation. Money also is needed to defray necessary expenses. Friday morning, as we go to press, wc are informed that the numberof signers to the pledge this week, thus far, is l,350,among whom are many of those who have hitherto been classed with the hardest drinkers of the city. Last evening, although stormy.was one of the best for the cause of temperance ever known to this city.
