That measure, considered in nil

most important and far reaching of
npy n all our history.
It was, nevertheless, driven

is pow bound by law to Issuo and
sell whenever the hanking trust sees

AKRON DAILY DEMOCRAT. TUESDAY DECEMBER 19
MEDINA COUNTY "CZAR-CASM,"
"THE GARFIELDS IN POLITICS.'
"It Is no secret that James It. Gar
field, of Mentor, will be n candidate
for congress In this district, next
year. Hon. F. O. Phillips has an
nounced his candidacy for renomlna
tlou und fullv exnects the cuitoinnrv
second term and feels it to be his
duo. To nrovo that the Oardnlds
are In politics, living Oarfleld got
himself elected tntlin Jlostnn. MngH..
school board, lost Monday."
Tlio above, taken from the editorial
column of last week's Medina Ga
zetto,60UDdn big and brave,but all the
same that popor will sing a far smal
ler note when convention time comes
round next summer. And it will do
this becauso Mark Hanna will coin-
pel it tp; it's talk in the adjoining
column about "traitors in the Re
publican party," and naming Gov.
Hushnell as one of tho "traitors" is
ovidenco enough on this point of Hb
continued and abject servility to tho
boss. The reason the Gazette editor
thinks Gov. Hushnell Is a "traitor"
is that tho latter would not be tho
mere lickspittle of corrupt poli
ticians, nor surrender the dignity of
his oil! co nt the howls of as disreput
able n mob as over was gotton to
gether to Insult and defy public opin
ion. On the question of tho Phillips
succession we do not scruplo toproph
ccy clear through to tho end. As a
political proposition Phillips Is nn
untoward accident. No ono wanted
him for his presont position; no ono
expocted him to bo nominated for It.
And when the nomination, by stress
of circumstances, camo around to
Medina county, the manouvor of
Its delegation, commlttod with
protestntlons of llp-servlco to Phil
lips, but; Inwardly despising him and
his candidacy, wero, like tho gam
bols of the hippopotamus,
inoro intofitlng than irrnoeful.
If his capturing tho plum
hod been accounted among tho
remotest of contingencies, the
Medina woods would havo boon full
of competitors. As It was, tho dolo
gatos wore seasick all tho way home,
to think that theonochnncaof allfo
tlmo had gono to such a fronk. Ever
slnco the nomination divers of the
political patriots of the county havo
been casting sheep eyett towards the
no it nomination, and now to have an
outsider who was beaten by stioh a
man aB Phillips como in and inter
fere with "home Industry" strikes
thorn on the raw. Honce tho mild
Insinuation of tho Gazette editorial
that "the GarfloldB are In politics;"
this slant, coining from so hungry a
county, Is what a facotlous frlond of
ours would call cznr-oasm.
lliit to our prediction: You nro
right, nolghbor, about the Garflolds
bolng'-ln politics," And t hoy will
havo no sort of trouble tn displacing
tho Medina glralfo, olther. To a
man who can boo through n ladder,
that a treaty has already been struck
to that ond Is npparont enough.
Mark Hanna has slated Roynolds
for tho speakership of the Ohio
House. This kills off tho Lnko
county opposition to James It,, and
Modlim county may whistlo about
tho "customary second term." What
show has Phillips against n corpora
tion lawyer, and tho son of his fnthor
to boot? Resides, Garfield did yoo
man service for Mark when he need
ed help at Columbus two years ago,
mid Just ns likely ns not hns told
him so ti his fnco before now, Ite
furu the year is month older

demand, but somehow its name was

tho Gazette will lend tho procession,

For, bo it romombered that
several notable things are to be said
about James R. Garfield, to-wlt:
First, that James A. Garfield was a
great man. Noxt, that be James
B., being newly out of Williams
college and of courso a froe-trader,
nnd hence so dear to the hearts of tho
shoop-ralserB of Medina county, nnd
being also ono of tho wo-are-tho-snlt-of-tbo-oarth

also tho putative author and finisher
of the go-cnllod "Gnrflold law,"
flfa tho "corrupt practices net," but
which ought to bo entitled an act for
tbo compulsory attendance of Ohio
ofllco-seekers nt tho school of por-
Jury, and for the promotion of hy
pocrisy. And finally, In advanco of
Mark Hanna'a Senatorial shambles

try to seduce so incorruptible a man,
ho caused it to be made known that
