The Republicans are contemplating
a change in their county ticket. The
tiring is not working to suit the ring.
Hancock County will present tho
name of Mr. Dunn, a young attorney
of Findlay, as its candidate for State
Senator. Mr. Dunn is reported to be
. Every county in this Senatorial Dis
trict will have a candidate before the
coming convention. A lively time
may be expected, and four of the can
didates will be disappointed.
The Democratic County Executive
Committee met last Saturday and or
ganized by selecting the following
officers : R. "W. Cahill, Chairman ; L.
L. Orwig, Secretary ; S. M. Heller,
Treasurer. 'It was resolved to hold
regular meetings of the committee
during the campaign upon every Sat
urday, at 2 o'clock P. M.
The Philadelphia Record pays : "The
difference between the. Readjustee
and Democrats of Virginia is very
easily stated. It is thirteen million
dollars. The Readjusters wish to
cheat the creditors out of this sum.
The Democrats would like to be rid of
the burden, but they can not bring
their consciences up to the scratch of
repudiation. This is the long and short
of the political trouble in Virginia."
The President Worse.
The country hs been in a eUte of
agitation (or the past few daji over
the alarming condition of the l'resi I
dent, who was reported as being very j
near death's door. The trouble this ,
time has been entirely with his stom- j
ach, his wound doing well. The stum- j
ach refused to do its functions, nausea
set in, and fear was entertained that
exhaustion would pet too great to be
overcome. The doctors still have
hopes, although they admit the Presi
dent to be in a very criMcal condition.
Mr. Andrew Duma, of Liberty Center, and a Dem
ocrat, called 00 us Monday last and requested or to
publish on bis authority that ho met Mr. J. D.
Morey, a prominent Democrat of Liberty Town
ship, aud charted him with bavlun sold out Mr.
Boukcr, as a camudatc fur Representative, at the
recent Democratic County Convention; that Mr.
Morey replied that he did, aud wanted to kuor
"what he (llurna) was going to do about it."
Wo find the abovo prominently dis
played in the columns of the Henry
County Signal last week, and no doubt
Granny Fouke thought ho had struck
a bonanza, but when he comes to learn
of the fellow who gavo him the ma
terial for his leader he will be ready
to exclaim : "Sold again, by thun
dor !" This man Burns is not a Dem
ocrat. He is simply nothing but a
confirmed loafer, and was under the
influence of liquor when he gave Fouke
the above hunk of tally. He is the
same fellow Judge Lemon ordered the
Sheriff to remove from the court room
in Toledo when he was testifying in
the case of Filcir vs. Oberly. And
should Mr. Fouke wish to learn more
of him let him inquire of any of tho
good citizens of Liberty, whether
Democrat or Republican. Mr. Morey,
who is a respectable citizen, answered
Burns as he deserved. -
.The distinguished Noyes was a
candidate for re election as Governor
in 1873, but William Allen laid him
out. Gov. Allen had been out of pol
itics for many years ; was, in fact, a
new man, and was elected.
In 1S77 R. M. Bishop, a business
man of Cincinnati, was the Democratic
candidate against William II. West,
malignant Republican, and the former
was triumphantly eleeted.
Noyes, in 1873, was as confident of
his election as "C." Foster is now, and
West was equally satisfied that he
would be chosen. We only mention
these cases to shew that sometimes
Tpeopie 'are wiser after the election.
"C." Foster & Co. may be.
Don't be smlrky and put on nira,
Lent people send you home for repairs;
More, politicians arc npt to be,
When in office, greatly set up, you see !
Tho time at last, however, comes round,
When voters consider the fellow that's sound.
Anil the man of vain and lofty pretense,
Is set aside to get better sense.
So Foster & Co. might take a thought
That all their assumption may como to naught !
The Bookwalter boom may prove a success
And let some folks see their own littleness.
The Enquirer says it must not be
forgotten that the Legislature elected
this fall will have the re-districting of
the State for members of Congress for
the next ten years. Experience proves
that the Republican party can not be
trusted to make an honest apportion
ment. Democrats want no gerryman
dering, no fixing up of districts to pre
vent an honest expression of the peo
pie. They want no more members of
Congress than they are honestly enti
tled to, and this they should secure by
electing a Democratic Legislature.
They want no executive like Foster,
who has uniformly and persistently
used his appointing power to reward
political partisans, but a man with the
catholic and manly spirit of Governor
Allen, who filled the boards of the
public institutions of the State with
men distinguished for their fitness,
without reference to party attach
It was the Cincinnati Commercial,
one of the mos unscrupulous daily
papers in the State, which gave pub
licity to the alleged statement that Mrs.
Hayes had said that-the only question
a voter should put to himself this fall
was, "Shall I endorse Garfield or
Guiteau," This was making out Mrs.
Hayes a very silly headed woman, but
the Signal thought the remark sharp
and reproduced it with much gusto.
Its editor will now be crestfallen to
know that Mrs. Hayes is still a lady,
and that he (Fouke) and the other Re
publican editors who endorsed the
statement are asses, after reading the
following card,whlch is taken from the

The Democracy of Ohio have great
pride and confidence in their leader,
John Wesley Bookwalter. They know
him to be a man of courage, cool and
clear headed, able and honorable. They
have a Napoleon at their head, and are
assured of victory.

Before the editor of the Signal can
get out an issue of his paper now he
must confer with his, two cronies

The Perrysburg Journal, a Republi

Reading like the following must
certainly be interesting ! to the tem

party. It is taken from the Cincinnati

the party for further useful activity. They will

On Friday last another payment of

declared about September 1st, and will
be some $1,400. This will pay the
balance and leave some $300 over.
The New York Tribune, in a para
graph about Mr.. Bookwalter, says1
'He i3 not so much a Democrat to
day as he is an anti-Garfield Republi
can, and no man can vote for him,
therefore, without voting to indorse
Guiteau, rather than Garfield." Mr.
Whitelaw Reid should cut short his
honeymoon and come home. The

The Wauseon Republican never lets
an opportunity slip to slander the De
mocracy of this county. The practice
is as dirty as it is contemptible, as the
Democrats of Henry County are just
as good and as honest as those making
up the Republican party of Fulton
County. The Republican could more
forcibly draw its comparisons with the
corrupt Republicans of Lucas County,
of which party the Sunday Journal,
edited by a brother of the proprietor
of the Republican, says:
Wc venture to say that in no county In Ohio have
there been so flagrant breaches of trust, year after
year, as by the Republicans, and the party remain
in power. Where, pray, could any other party have
repeated the administration of the county for years
and not bo hurled from powerf Where were there
ever so flagrant scandals as have affeoted some of
the omcoi without change 1
Bookwalter is a remarable fine
looking, inteligent appearing man, and

ornament to any party. Toledo Satur
