If ill living at the age of eighty-eight.
President Garfield, who Las been
verj near death's door during the past
week, u dow reported to be bligutly
on the mend, with hopes of Lis recov
ery. 1 be change is so slight, uowev-
er, that his life still hangs on a very
slender thread, which may be snapped
at any moment. Fifty million people
are praying for his recovery.
Some of the Republican press ask
why John Wesley Bookwalter is the
workingmah's friend. We kindly give
them tho reasons:
He is to-day a workingman. He has
been all his life. From a farmer's son
in Indiana, to the day he was the boy
ish maker of the largest telescope in
America, to the day he run his father's
saw mill, to the day, by his own inven
tive genius, he provided his father with
a flourishing grist-mill, to the day he
discovered the transmission of power
to a distance by a rope, to the day he
began to build up the business and to
improve the turbine water wheel of
Leffel & Co., he was a workirgman.
Ever since he has been a workingman.
He haB helped build up the indus
trial interests of the country by invent'
ing and perfecting valuable manufact
ures, and giving employment to thous
ands of workingmen.
He has always been their friend, do
ing many noble deeds of private chari
ty and timely assistance, as many men
in Springfield can eloquently testify,
He has ever granted regular pay to
his men when sick.
He never made a reduction of wages
in his shops.
A strike never occurred in his shops.
In the panic of 1873, he said that
the workingmen eventually bore all
the burden of the panic, and be pro
posed to he!p them, and Le increased
wages in his shops from 10 to 20 per
In 1880, when workingmen of Ohio
were being infamously and shameless
ly frightened and bull-dozed, he called
his men together and said: "Fellow
workingmen I employ you because
you are intelligent workingmen, fully
earn your wages, and make me a fair
profit. As I think you have the in
taligenqe to make skilled mechanics, eo
I think you have to make skilled voters.
As i-Uustin.your honor and conscien-
lictetsUjilr &ei:hanics, so do I as
yotcrf.i.ourare as iree born as any
in the 'land. .You are as much inter
estd in the welfare of the country as
I. . I shall vote the Democratic ticket.
You ' vote as you please. After the
election, whatever its result, I shall
hold the same esteem for you, and era
ploy you at the same wages."
He made every dollar by honest,
legitimate business. No banks, no
monopolies, no railroads, no syndicates,
no wealthy friends aided him. All
that he has of wealth, fame, education,
travel and culture, he won by his own
hands and brains, in a clean, clear,
open, Honest manner, liis me is a
noble example to the toiling masses of
Hon. J. N. High, in placing in
nomination Col. Norton at the Repub
lican Senatorial Convention last week,
said 'he was a man, who, despite all that
could be done for the State ticket,
would lead Gov. Foster in Henry coun
ty by 400 votes.' In making that
statement Mr. High either acknowl
edged the weakness of Foster,or was giv
ing the Convention taffy in big hunks,
for any man who knows aught at all
concerning the political field in Henry
county knows full well that Col. Nor
ton cannot run 400 ahead of his ticket.
Recently a grave conference of
leading Republicans was held in the
law office of the Chairman of the Clark
Co. Central Com. at Springfield, and
the temperance and Methodist church
business was being discussed. The
chairman, a Presbyterian, flatly said
that the temperance people and the
Methodist church were plainly playing
h 1 with the Republican party. One
Methodist spoke up and said he'd do
his share of rebuking the church by
withdrawing his subscription to the
church. Another said that if his min
ister even winked at the temperance
ticket, he'd make things warm for him.
Another good Methodist said that this
temperance movement was the move
ment of fanatical fools, and he propos
ed to help set down on the Methodist
church if it sustained the temperance
ticket. . And so it goes. '

and the head of thd ticket a fraud and

ago the editor of that sheet was ready
to spit upon Lira.
What does the god and morality
the great Republican party mean by
its present attitude towards temperance
and the Methodist church ?
Old moneybags carried the day at
fhe Republican Senatorial Convention,
by securing the nomination of two
bankers Brigham and Norton.
Fulton county gave Norton but one
vote, and Henry returned the compli
ment by giving Brigham one vote!
There is blood on the moon.
Why don't "C." Foster put General
John Beatty on the stump to te'.l what
he knows about Foster's methods of
spending the money of the Republican
Committee as his own ?
The Republican '-bosses'' want Reed
to withdraw from the ticket and Yar
nell substituted. We have no objec
tions, anything to please the ''bosses,"
for when they are pleased the Demo
crats have a double dead sure thing.
"C." Foster has canceled dates for
his show. The people would not turn
out to see it. He says he did so out
of respect for Garfield. The people
kept aloof out of respect for themselves
and the wounded President, and the
What naughty fellows these Demo
crats are, to be sure. They don't do
and act at all as Granny Signal would
like. The ticket don't suit her, neither
is the NoRTnwEST conducted to please
her, and Granny is in a peck of worry.
In putting the question to a Repub
lican concerning High's promise that
Norton would run 400 ahead of the
ticket in Henry county, we were ans.

"The columns of the Signal will
bear witness that we have not editorial
ly attacked the character of any of the
Democratic candidates," whines Gran
ny Signal. Just so. It is all done
through the syndicate of liars. But
Granny need have no fear of our hold
ing up to view the character of the
Republican candidates. That would
be too awfully awful.
Mr. Norton remarked at Toledo that
he could secure enough votes in Henry
county to secure bis election. On what
grounds will he secure these votes ?
Surely he has no cause to believe that
Democrats will desert their candidates
and vote for him. He is one of the
most uncompromising Republicans in
the county, and has none of the ele
ments that would alienate a Democrat
from his party. Mr. Norton, no doubt,
may secure the vote of his party, and
a few scattering votes of personal
Democratic friends, but not in sufficient
numbers to assure his election. We
do not say this in disparagement of Mr.
Norton, nor do we wish to discourage
him, but to warn him that it is ex
tremely unsafe to count chickens be
fote they are hatched.
Republicans have considerable to
say concerning Bookwalter's Democ
racy, and especially do they whine
their surprise at the Democrats nom
inating him. They forget Grant,
whom they nominated for President
when he had never voted anything
else than a Democratic ticket. Then
how is it about Todd and Brough,
both of whom had been Democaats,
and still were Republican nominees for
Governor. Gentlemen, lower your
surprised hands, and elevate your shoe
and hoist yourselves for being such
In commenting on the Democrat
candidates, the Cincinnati Gazette says:
"If some one would shoot Bookwalter-."
Does the pious Gazette mean to en
courage assassination ? If a Demo
cratic paper, at this time, had indulged
in such unfortunate lauguage about
Governor Foster, the Republican
papers would , have made Ohio howl
from the river to the lake.
At the Republican Senatorial Con
vention at Toledo lat Thursday, J. II.
Bnghain, of Dlta. anJ Col. Norton, of
this place, were aplrcted a; candidates.
It ia a little strange that Toledo was
ignored, as it is customary to give that
city, the 3d ci'.y in the State, at least
one of the candidates. But all was not
loveiy among the Republican brothers
and Lucas countv was snubbed. This
wilTbSve its effect in Toledo in Octo
ber." Everything is working for a
Democratic victory this fall in the 33d
But a few weeks ago Mr. John W.
Bookwalter was an honorable gentle
man, one of Ohio's ablest men, one of
Springfield's leading manufacturers, a
finely successful business man, a schol
ar ad a man of ripe experience. Now
the opposit-.pn papers find that he is
the quintessence of all that's wicked,
execrable and awfully awful. It is
wonderful how "circumstances alter

When such newspapers as the Day

some excuse may be found, but the
Commercial should be above it. 'We

Mr. Bookwalter has repeatedly express
ed his preference for a monarchical
form of government.' This is puerile.
The Commercial understands no such
thing. It simply endorses an irre
sponsible and foolish lie. If Mr. Book-
waiter had ever so exposed himself the
Commercial would quickly produce the
proofs and not content itself with
printing second-hand twaddle. If the

ful tonic, and is warranted a speedy and

and profuse perspiration.
It is a startling fact, that quinine, arse

basis of most of the " Fever and Ague
Preparations," "Specifics," "Syrups," and
"Tonics," in the market. The prepara

although they are palatable, and' may
break the chill, do not cure, but leave the
malarial and their own drug poison in
the system, producing quinism, dizziness,
ringing in the cars, headache, vertigo, and
other disorders more formidable than the
disease they were intended to cure.
Ayer's Aoub Cure thoroughly eradicates
these noxious poisons from the system,
and always cures the severest cases. It
contains no quinine, mineral, or any thing
