Republican State Convention.
By direction of the 8taui Central Com
mute, the next Republican SUte Con
Tention will be held in the city of Cin
. cinnati, Wednesday,. May 20th(
The Convention will nominate candid
Governor, ;' .
. ! Lieutenant Governor,
. Supreme Judge
Attorney General, -.
Auditor of State, . '
Treasurer of State,
Member of Board of Public Works.
We recommend that effort be made to
secure a large attendance at the meetings
to appoint delegates, so that the people
shall be fairly represented in the State
. Convention, and that as far as possible,
the County Central Committees be ap-
. pointed at the same time that delegates
to the State Convention are chosen if
they have not been appointed before.
' The Basis of Representation in the
Convention will be one delegate to every
five hundred votes cast for Milton
Barnes for Secretary of State in
1878, and one additional delegate for
any fraction of two hundred and fifty
' votes and upward in each county. This
will entitle Lorain cosVty to nine dele
gates. By order of Committee.

Fires are an expensive risk. From

from such great fires as those that devas
tated Chicago and swept The timber from
Western forests.' Notwithstanding the
frequency of fires caused by . defective
flues, not one householder in ten takes a
proper interest in seeing that the chim
nies and pipes connected with his own
buildings are not allowed to become foul;
or that the connections are made secure;
or that hot pipes are sufficiently isolated
by space and non-conducting substances
to prevent lath, floors or other woodwork
from becoming charred and taking fire on
some windy day when it cannot be con
trolled, or some night when the house
hold are asleep. Intelligent care in these
things is better than any insurance. Sta
tistics show that nearly all the fires are
the legitimate result ot inexcusable neg

of stupid ignorance. The person who does

Ed. Ehtzrprisk. In your issue of the
13th there was an article signed "Demo
crat" about which I wish to say a word.
By taking up one point I can answer the
whole matter. He says: "Democrats,
Republicans and Floaters let us all join
and select the best men,' etc., etc." I
want to ask Mr. "Democrat" whether if
the Democratic party were in the ascend
cy here, he would issue any such invita
tion? Would they not take what they wanted
and then snap their fingers in the faces
of us Republicans and ask us as did
Boss Tweed of the New Yorkers, "what
are you going to do about it?"
Also, in view of the - high-handed acta
ot the ruling party in the South, during
the past year where Republicans are os
tracised from society, driven from the
polisby red-shirted rebels armed with
shot-guns, where it costs life to vote any
other than the Democratic ticket, is it not
the h :ight of impudence to ask for the
support of the Republicans to any office
in our gilt? We have men ox brains in
the Republican party to select our offi
cers from, then why should we go to a
party whose record for the past twenty
years has been marked with treason, cor
ruption and war?
It is plain to be seen why "Democrat"
is so anxious to join hands and put the
"best men forward irrespective of party."
We are on the eve of a very important
State election and possibly "Democrat"
might get the nomination to some impor
tant office. Then he will need every
vote he can command in his own party,
and some of the Republicans to elect
The conclusion of the whole matter
seems to be this: So long as a single Re
publican south of Mason and Dixon's Line
cannot express his political opinions or
vote according to the dictates of his own
conscience, owing to the supremacy of a
"Soiia south" let us see to it mat in ue
publican Wellington no Democrat ever
again holds an office.
Ed. Eatxrpribk. Not long since we
saw an article in your paper irorn "Re-
punncan" on the subject oi township ana
municipal elections, the writer of which
appears to have looked pretty thoroughly
over the political field and might have
truthfully enlarged upon that subject to
the same purpose. We however endorse
all be did say. Xtow, in looking over the
political history of the two parties Re
publican and Democratic for the past
twenty years, it does not require that a
man should be a statesman, poet or phil
osopher to see that the helm of the ship
of state is not safe in the hands of the
Democratic party. We ssy this because
we have observed the movements of the
two parties for the pfst twenty years with
more and greater anxiety than ever be
fore, by reason of the slave-holders' Re
bellion which has occurred within that
We expected and honestly believed
at the commencement of the war that
all irrespective of party, north of Mason
and Dixon's Line, would stnd firm in
support of the government, bat we were
sadly disappointed in this regard, as it is
an Historical I act mat a .Democratic
President sympathized wiih and en
couraged the South in rebellion and that
Democratic organizations ("Knignts oi
the Golden Circle") all over the great
West, and vast multitudes of Democrats
were in earnest sympathy with the re
bellion and armed themselves in many
localities for the purpose of liberating
rebel prisoners. Bat enough. Volumes
might be written upon this subject and
the half not be told. In looking over
the Congressional Record of those days
we find scarcely a movement, proposition
or act of the Republicans that did not
meetwita most outer ana aetermmea
opposition from the Democrats. The
introduction of the "greenback" as cur
rency, which all well knew was the only
means by whtcir"Tne"governttieirrcoura
be sustained, was most strenuously op
posed by the Democrats, and yet a short
time since they were sadly disappointed
because they could not flood the country
with them. And so it might be said of
nearly all the Republican acta of legis
lation for years back. Opposed at first
by the Democrats, they were afterward
endorsed and approved by them. Even
the indomitable Wade Hampton begged
of Pres. Hayes the privilege of being
trusted to carry out the Constitutional
Amendments, but his way of doing it
has not increased his popularity with the
President very much, we nave no dis
position to shake the bloody shirt though
the Southern wing of the Democratic
party is furnishing a fresh supply of that
srannent on every election occasion. We
only wish to remind some forgetful Re
publicans that there has been, ana sun
is, a alight difference between the Demo
cratic and Republican idea, which is
pretty thoroughly shown up by the Dcm
ocratic opposition to that grand act of
resumption and the establishment of
honest money for the people which has
come along quietly and without produc
ing a jar in the financial concerns of the
country, no earthquakes, whirlwinds or
cyclones as predicted by the Democrats
Now in regard to township and mu
nicipal elections. We are heartily sorry
that we cannot conscientiously vote for
our Democratic townsmen for township
or corporation officers. Wo don't refuse
to do so because the Democrat are
thoroughly in thic practice where they
have the majority, neither do we object
to making township officers of Democrats
because they by virtue of a little omce
can iniure our cause very much. Bat
we do object for this reason. That they
will vote for. and use their influence in
the election of men to fill important Na-.
tional and State positions who are sure
to oppose every Republican measure that
may be introduced, we have sometime
thought for no other reason than because
it originated with Republicans. We
believe the Republican idea to be the
correct one and we have Democratic au
thority for our opinion. We say that if
it is worth the effort tbst we generally
make in the election of State and County
officers, it certainly is worth our time in
going quietly to the polls and voting for
Republican township and corporation of
ficers. We could increase our good rea
sons for this practice if necessary. If
Republican principles as carried out for
the last twenty years nave oeen Deuer,
safer and more in harmony with the wel
fare of the government we see no reason
why they are not so still, and why they
should not be whenever and wherever
the ballot is brought into requisition,
The Republican party can if they will,
always pnt in nomination good and unex
ceptionable men. They have enough of
that element in the party.and we are very
glad if their recent experience has taught
them wisdom in this matter, u it nas
not they must continue experimenting.
"Wit once bought is worth twice taught"
is an old saying, and we could add, "If
it is not bought St too dear a rate."
The Coart-Hou.se Q uestion.
Ed. Estkkfbtsb. We see that the
subiect of building a new court-house in
our county is being pretty thoroughly
agitated. If our memory serves as right
the same subject was agitated some thir
ty or thirty-five jears ago to some extent
and also that of the removal of the
county seat, and as usual in such matters
different opinion were expressea as 10
whether if rebuilt it should not go to
Oberlin as a more central location. It w
then thought that the building was a
good one and that it would be folly and
an unnecessary expense to take it down,
and also that the taxes were then all that
could be borne, which idea prevailed, the
subject was dropped and the enterprise
abandoned. Bat now we all concede
that a new court-house in Lorain county
is necessary and the Question with many
of us is, "Where shall it be located?" In
Cincinnati when they built their new
post offloe they located it in that part ef
the city which would pav the most to
ward it construction, determined by the
votes or. the people. ' In other places
where new buildings become necessary,
they have done the same thing, and es
pecially where one proposed site was
equally as commodious and central as
another. Now it is a wellknown fact
that Oberlin is much nearer the geo
graphical center of Lorain county than
Jlyria, and then the moral atmisphero
of Oberlin compared with that of Elyria
is quite a consideration in the location
of county buildings. Elyria is quite fa
mous lor saloons and groggeries. . We
understand that Oberlin offers thirty or
thirty-five thousand dollars for the court
house and southern Lorain will contrib
ute nobly for the location at Oberlin We
think it would bo well to give the peo
ple of the two different sections a chance
to manifest their individual interested
ness in this matter. If Oberlin csn give
thirty-five thousand dollars what will
Elyria give? While we are writing a
neighbor comes in and says: -'Oberlin is
much more central than Elyria," and
proves it by facts and figures. Consult
ing the map we find that he is right.
But some will say that the jail is in Elyr
ia and that the court-house and the jail
should be nesr each other. We think we
need a new jail fully as much as we do a
new court-house. Elyria has more than
once been burglarized by jail birds
breaking in upon them from the jail.
We have hea-.d many from the differ
ent towns in the southern part of the
county speak upon this subject, and all
express themselves much pleased with
the idea of having the county seat in a
more central location. We are aware
that there are some even in Wellington
who have been lovingly button-holed by
the good people of Elyria, and others
who may be aspirants to office and ex-
Jiect a big boost from the north very
ikely have been promised it, who will
not favor our proposition, but we think
they will be the exception, not the rule.
We think if this matter is attended to
and comes ' fairly before the
public, and the above proposition is ac
ceded to, we can build the courthouse
and jail at Oberlin and not draw upon
that idle fifty thousand dollars.
IIcntinoton, March 7, 1870.
. Mr. Editor. The reasons given by
your correspondent "E. G." in favor of
a new courthouse are conclusive, but the
location or site proposed is not quite to
clear. As stated a very perceptible
change has taken place in the county da
ing the last fifty years. At the time the
county was organized Elyria was the
most central point as to population
and business, but now it is altogether too
much on one side. The public interest
and convenience demand that the county-seat
be removed to a more central
point. The subject has been discussed by
citizens of the south part of the county
for many years and Oberlin - concluded
upon as the proper place. The Welling
ton people - would no doubt be highly
plea&d, as would the people of this and
adjoining townships to have it at Wel
lington, but the same objections would
arise that do against Elyria of being too
remote from the central part of the
county. When the subject was agitated
many years since the principal argument
against removal was the great sacrifice
on the then valuable county buildings.
That objection no longer exists. It is
reported that the people of Oberlin pro
pose to give a liberal sum on condition
that the new court-house be built there.
Possibly a little self interest may have
its influence in prompting the offer, but
of the kind not necessarily immoral. It
ia very common in towna and cities to
make similar propositions to influence
appears very sure that if time is given
to present the subject before the voters
of the county in all iu bearings, a new
eighty-five or a hundred thousand dollar
court-house can be built without levying
any direct tax or using that already
raised. If any attempt is made to rush
the matter let the people vote against the
tax until a f uli and fair expression can
be had in regard to the location.
Mr. Editor. In a late issue of your
paper your correspondent "Steb" from
this place said that as Mr. Peterson the
proprietor or the union iiotei was com'
ing home from Wellington he let a bug'
gy pas's him that had' two ladies in it,
and he having the devil in him and
watching his chance run his heavy wheel
(he did not siy what kind of a wheel
whether it was a buggy-wheel or a cart
wheel or a spinning-wheel or a wagon-
wheel, but a "heavy" wheel) Into their
hind wheel and threw them out hurting
them badly. Now, a part of that ia
true, and part is as false as the old fellow
that runs the lower regions-can make it
I was in Wellington some three weeks ago
and coming home by the way of Hunt
ington a horse and buggy came up be
hind me with the wish to pass. I turned
aaide for them and they passed, then
went very slow until a. new idea came
into their minds, when they whipped
their horse very bard and crossed right
in front of my horses' heads. They
turning so quick and using the whip so
freely, Abe hind wheel of their buggy
caught on top ' of my horses' neck. I
stopped my team righted up their buggy
and put in their things that were thrown
out. Of course they were tumbled out
but not hurt, for I have it from those
to whom they told it that they said they
felt some sore, that was all. Now be it
understood that I was in a sleigh and it
was behind the horses not in front of
them and even had I been on wheels
how then could I have hitched my wheel
on theirs and hung it up on the top of
my horses' heads. Don't you see it could
not be done? tie iurther sata that
drove on, not looking back to see whether
they were hurt or not. They don't say
so, but "Steb" does. Now what became
of the buggyrwheel in that case. What
strenuous efforts some people will make
to tell the truth. "Oh, Consistency, thou
art a iewelT' Now. Mr. Editor, I have
given you and your readers the plain, un

FOR THE CURE OF
Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint,
PYSnrSIA AMD SICK HBAOACHB.
Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN in the right side, under the
edge of the ribs, increases on pres
sure; sometimes the pain is in the left
side; the patient is rarely able to lie
on the left side ; sometimes the pain is
felt under the shoulder blade, and it
frequently extends to the top of the
shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken
for rheumatism in the arm. The
stomach is affected with loss of appe
tite and sickness; the bowels in gen
eral arc costive, sometimes alternative
svith lax; the head is troubled with
pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy
sensation in the back part There is
generally a considerable loss of mem
ory, accompanied with a painful sen
sation of having left undone some
thing which ought to have been done.
A slight, dry cough is sometimes an
attendant. The patient complains of
weariness and debility; he is easily
startled, his feet are cold or burning,
and he complains of a prickly sensa
tion of the skin; his spirits are low;
and although he is satisfied that exer
cise would be beneficial to him, yet
he can scarcely summon up fortitude
enough to try it. In fact, he distrusts
every remedy. Several of the above
symptoms attend the disease, but cases
have occurred where few of them ex
isted, yet examination of the body,
after death, has shown the liver to
have been extensively deranged.
AGUE AND FEVER.
Dr. C McLaxe's Liver Pills, in
cases of Ague and Fever, when
taken with Quinine, are productive of
the most happy results. No better
cathartic can be used, preparatory to,
or after taking Quinine. We would
advise all who are afflicted with this
disease to give them a fair trial.
For all bilious derangements, and as
a simple purgative, they are unequaled.

are still the most thorough and search
ing cathartic medicine that can be
employed : cleansing the stomach and
bowels, and even the blood. In small
. closes of one pill a day, they stimulate
the digestive organs and promote Tig- .
Ayf.r's Pills have lcen kaown for
more than a quarter of a century, and
hare obtained a world-wide reputation
for their virtues. They correct dis
eased action in the several assimila
tive organs of the body, and are so '
composed that obstructions within '
their range can rarely withstand or
evade them. Not only do they cure
the cvery-day complaints of every
body, but also formidable and danger
ous diseases that have baffled the best
of human skill. While they produce
powerful effects, they are, at the same
time, the safest and best physic for
children. By their aperient action
they gripe much less than the common,
purgatives, and never give pain when,
the bowels are not inflamed. They
reach the vital fountains of the blood,
and strengthen the system by freeing
it from the elements of weakness.
Adapted to all ages and conditions
In all climates, containing neither
calomel nor any deleterious drug,
these Pills may be taken with safety
by anybody. Their sugar-coating pre
serves them ever fresh and makes
thcin pleasant to take; while being
purely vegetable, no harm can arise
from their use in any quantity.
