IST OFFICIAL PAPER OF CH Y AND CO
NAPOLEON, OHIO, DECEMBER 20, 1894.
The Northwest wishes its readers,
one and all, a joyful Christmas and a
prosperous New Year, and as a remind
er of the holiday season presents them
with a double paper this week, in or
der that they may have a qnanity of
reading matter suitable for the oc
casion. The double number is issued
also in remembrance of the liberal
patronage extended to the North
west during the past year, for which
we return thanks, with a hope that
Our efforts may continue to be ap
preciated. Eighty-skven criminals have been

Thk i'evenue of the government for
the year last past amounted to $372,
803,492.30 and thedisbursements $442,
007.758.87, leaving a deficit of $09,803,
200.58. The expenses of government
decreased over that of 1893, $159,000,
000 in round numbers. How is that
for a Democratic beginning?
In Ohio there is one divorce grant
ed to every twelve marriages. For the
year ending March 31, 1894, there
were 13,858 marriages, a falling off of
1213 from the previous year. Divorces
granted for year ending July 81, 1894,
2753 of which the women got 2023 and
the men 730 showing woman to be
more constant than man.
Gen. John Bkatty, who has so
completely exploded the McKinley
protective ideas, has issued a little
volume setting forth his ideas and
views, a copy of which has been kind
ly furnished us by the publishers,
Hahn & Adair, of Columbus. The
book is valuable, and should be es
pecially read by those Republicans
who still believe that that country
can be taxed into prosperity. The
pamphlet only costs 25c, and can be
secured by addressing the publishers.
Another prize fighter killed. This
time it is Andy Bowen, who was
knocked out in the 18th round by
Lavigne at New Orleans on Saturday.
The fatal blow was on the chin, the
victim falling square on his head,
crushing the skull, which produced
death. This ring murder should put
an end to prize-fighting, as these mur
ders are becoming entirely too fre
quent. The law should put a stop to
all such proceedings. '

The society women of Cleveland
recently inaugurated a crusade
against the "living picture" girls and
were going to have the courts sup
press them in the interest of morality.
But the fair females of the stage re-
retaliated by calling attention to the
full dress, or rather half dress costumes
of the society women, and when they
threatened to secure a judicial ruling
as to just what section of the female
form divine is a breach of the peace
when not concealed, the society wora-
on suddenly concluded that they did
n't want tofightthe "living pictures".
It would be awful, you know, if the
courts would decide that the society
'full dress" is immoral. Perish the

When Andrew Jackson was Presi
dent, one of Wl young Tennessee
friends called on him In Washington
and asked for a place. The young
man looked about and found what
he wanted. It was in the war de
partment. The place was filled by a
very efficient Whig, whom Secretary
Cass would not remove. The young
man told the President the situation
and Mr. Cass was requested to appear
before the President. "Cass," said
Jackson, "this young man, son of my
friend, says you have a place in the
war department, filled by a Whig,
which you refused to give him." Sec
retary Cass explained that the duties
of the office were of a peculiar kind
and he could get no one to fill the
place if the man in it should be re
moved. "By the eternal, Cass, do
you mean to tell me you have an of
fice in your department filled by a
Whig which can't be filled by a Dem
ocrat? Then abolish the office." The
young man got the place.
What is Democracy,?
Col. W. A. Taylor, in his new paper,
published at Columbus, keeps stand
ing at the head of his editorial
columns the grand words of that grand
old statesman, William Allen, which
thrills every Democratic heart with
new zeal for the honored and sacred
principles of the party.
Listen to the noble vords of Willam
"Democracy is a sentiment not to
be appalled, corrupted orcompromis-
ed. It knows no baseness; it cowers
to no danger; it oppresses no weak
ness. Fearless, generous and humane
it rebukes the arrogant, cherishes
honor and sympathizes with the
humble. It concedes nothing but
what it demands. Destructive only
of despotism, it is the sole conservator
of liberty, labor and property. It is
the sentiment of freedom, of equal
obligations. It is the law of nature
pervading the law of the land. The
stupid, the selfish, and the base in
spirit may denounce it is a vulgar
thing; out in the history or our race,
the Democratic principle has develop
ed and illustrated the highest moral
and intellectual attributes of our na
Yes, that is a noble, magnanimous.
a sublime sentiment, which expands
our affections, enlarges the circle of
our sympathies and elevates the soul
of man, until claiming an equality
with the best, he rejects, as unworthy
of his dignity, any political immuni
ties over the humblest of his fellows.
Yes it is an ennobling principle-
and may the spirit which animated
our fathers, in the revolutionary con
test for its establishment, continue to
animate us, their sons, in the im
pending struggle for its preservation."
UK IS HAPPY.
But the State is Oettin;; Deeper
in tho Mire Every Day.
So far as any record goes. Governor
McKinley never expressed himself un
equivocally but once on any matter
connected with the State Govern
ment. That was to declare hi warm en
dorsement of the plan of making ad
vance drafts on the county treasuries
whenever the State Treasury got
empty. This he regarded as an origi
nal idea in finance, which no one ever
dreamed of previous to the advent of
And yet this profound system is as
old as the hills. The Bible gives a
notable instance in the case of the

of his majority the P. S. managed to
just live up to his income, The next

During the third year he got two
thirds of his fourth year's salary on

he made advance drafts for all of his
fifth year's salary and began to clam

Then it was that his venerable father
came to the conclusion that the P. S.

The McKinley administation has
parallelled the financial career of the
Prodigal Son. At first it borrowed
next year's revenues to pay this year's
expenditures. Now it is borrowing
next year's and the year after's reve
nues to pay last year's expenditures.
Where the money is to be borrowed
to pay this year's expenditures heav

that Governor McKinlev and the Re

Columbus, O., Dec. 15. Represen
tative Martin Dodge has carried his
electrio railway idea several steps
further than the propositions con
tained in the report of the State Rail
road Commission. Now he proposes
an electric road extending all over
the State, and touching everv county
seat in Ohio. It is expected to build
this road by the State and counties.

counties, and leased to individuals or
corporations who will operate it.
The road will be 4,000 miles in
length and the roadbed and trackage
would cost $20,000,000 in round num
bers. Ten millions of this, on Mr.
Dodge's plans, would be apportioned
to the several counties, based on the
number of miles in their territory,
and ten millions be paid by the State.
Mr. Dodge argues that the policy of
the public in the past has been to
make the roadbed and permit indi
viduals and corporations to operate
upon it. This is the case with the
turnpike and toll roads. Now he
simply proposes to enlaigfi on the
scheme and build electrio lilies con
necting all the county seats on the
same principle. It is his intention to
push his scheme at the next session
of the legislature.

The calendar for 1895, which is just

An exchange says: At every quar
terly session of the County Commis
sioners, they are called upon and ask
ed to allow costs in misdemeanor
criminal cases where the defendant
was discharged. Whereas had the
justice or mayor before whom the case
was tried used proper precaution, the
costs would not have occurred, or if
they did they would have been secur
ed by the person bringing the case.
In most cases of misdemeanor the
magistrate has the right to require
security or bail for cost before issu
ing. This secures the officer of the
court who makes the arrest in getting
his pay for services, and the witness
es for their time and trouble, as the
Commissioners are not obliged to
grant an allowance for costs, and
generally refuse to pay such costs
when the defendant has not been con
victed, unless in an extreme case, up
o.i evidence before the Board in sup
port of the cost bill, that it is one in
which proper precautions had been
taken by the officers. In case of a
felony, or a penitentiary offense, no
security for costs can be demanded
by the magistrate, but he has the
right to enquire into it and judge for
himself whether it is a sure enough
case of felony, and not merely alleged
to be so in order to avoid giving
security for costs.
