LIES CONTINUE TO RULE? MICHAEL D. HARTER!
Monday Evening in the Opera House.
AN ABLE AND EFFECTIVE
Tilden, Hendricks & Reform.
The speech of Mr. M. D. Harter in the
Opera House on Monday evening was
one oi the most full, comprehensive and
complete an well as effective that we have
heard this campaign, The Opera House
was full to overflowing, and graced with
quite an atiendance of ladies. Never did
an audience remain and give better atten
tion, for we do not think one person left
till Mr. Harter concluded. The only in
terrnptions were the frequent outburst
of annlmiRB at tha harjnv turns, hitu and

and a couple of Tilden and Hendricks
songs by the Nilsson Club, Mr. Johnson
Sherrick stepped forward and said,' Mi
chael D. Harter, in Canton, his native
town, where he is so well and familiarly
known, requires no formal introduction.
He was glad to see so good an attendonce
and he wonld give way for the speaker
of the evening,
MICHAEL D. HARTER
who was greeted with hearty applause.
Mr. Harter was gratified that so many
honored him on this occasion he felt
the country was safe when the people
took so much interest in public affairs,-
he was no office seeker nor office holder
but would share as any other private
citizen the benefits to be derived from
Tildeu's election. Applause.
The speaker said he would gladly re
ceive interruption or listen to a question.
It was approachintr a century t-ince the
great contest between tbe Federal party
under Hamilton and the Republicans
under Jefferson, and near half a century
since the war between the U.a. Hank
and Jackson. We are now too, years
away from slavery and the la'e war, and
all people South as well as North accept
the results, and the situation, and the
Constitutional amendments, Loyalty
then was no question in issue. He saw
a Republican banner the other day that
read ''The Democratic party is rebel all
over, lie thought the iJemocrale had
served in the Union army as well as Re
publicans. If the Democratic party was
rebel all over Democratic and Republi
can counties in Ohio would show it and
he would read from the Adjutant Gener
al's report. When the draft was ordered
Stark was not as much behind in enlist
ment as was Summit Crawford less than
Medina Franklin, a Democratic county,
was only 31 deficient, while old Abolition
Ashtabula waa 231 Wyandot 30 and

the Union than Republican. Loyalty
then was not a question. Applause. I
Bnt rebel claims would be paid if Dem
ocrats got in power. No Democrat fa
vored payment and Mr, Tilden's letter
set the question at rest. Of the rebel
claims presented in Congress at the late
session over half were presented by Re-
publican members and James G. Blaine
more than any one else. The Republi
cans had already paid twenty millions of
rebel claims and the Democratic Con
gress but $60,000, l'his then is not a
question but mere stuff. The problem
is shall we have good and lawful gov
ernment? shall rights be protected?
shall Honesty prevail? or shall corrup
tion continue to rule. Applause.

Secretary Chandler was ho low in hia
own Republican Slate that an old fellow,
Christiancy, beat him for the U. 8 Sen
ate and yet Grant ma le him Secretary.
and he was now Chairman of the Repub
lican National Campaign Committee.
Mr. Harter spoke of the currency of
1' ranee, said we ought to have the best
government in the world instead of the
worst, and it would be the best if Tilileu
waa elected. By good management
France had had no panic and her credit
stood high and she was prosperous.
What has the Republican party done in
these eleven years since the war ? Thy
have run the government to the benefit
of gamblers and not the people honest
business and honest labor were interested
in an honest, and Btable currency. The
resumption measure of the Republican
parly shou'd be called how not to re
sume. The Republican tariff system, called
"protection" was only robbery a scheme
1 !.!..!. fl. LI. LJ- l
iiy which proiiiauiu ousiness was plun
dered to benefit unprofitable. We pay
more for iron than Cuba although we
have mountains of iron oreand Cuba has
none, When an emery mine some years
was found in Massachusetts it was
thought we would get emery cheaper,
instead ot whicn congress put a nigh
tariff on emery and gave the Yankee
company a monopoly, and emery is
higher than ever; he did not believe in
taxing one man or many men a dime to
benefit another, fAnulause.l T'e man

Mr. Harter spoke of the civil service,
its defects, the frauds perpetrated, the
changes since i he war that made fewer
employees necessary! the curtailment of
internal revenue districts, and yet during
Grant's administration officials had in
creased from 56,01)0 to 102.600.
He spoke of the South and the way
carpet baggers had managed to plunder,
and how the Grant administration had
sustained them by bayonets. The Re
publican party, while talking reform, as
ex-Governor Cox did on Saturday night,
yet sustained all thess infamies. The
party has been sixteen years in power
and these wrongs have grown up under
their rule they confess guilt and appeal
to the jury, which are the people, who,
on Tuesday, November 7th, will bring in
a verdict of guilty. Applause and
' Four years ago the Republican party
promised reform has that promise been
fulfilled? Does not corruption stalk in
public, not even keening within the line
of common decency ? The civil service
of the government had so gone down
that there seemed but two classes, those
in the penitentiaries and those who
ought to be there. Laughter and ap
plause. The party in power don't in
tend reform a man dou t go to a black
smith to get his tooth pulled. Bristow
was willing at Cincinnati but. they passed
him by and took Hayes I Hayes never
gave evidence of reform and his cam
paign was being run by Morton, Chan
dler and the Grant lenders. He was a
very different man from Tilden who bad
given evidence of reforming. After Til
.len s four venrs,'hen things were in
better shape, Hayes might be tried but
it would not do now at all. Laughter.
He would admit the Republican plat
form where they say they endorse and
approve the administration of President
Grant. A man in the throes of death
will sometimes tell the truth,
the Democratic Dartv bad been true to
itself at St. Louis, to their platform and

Not at all. If it did, the Republicans

by the Claims dodge. The Rebel claim
ants are now Repnblicans. They have
become such through the exertions of
Mosby, and the promise that if the Re

fact that they were paid by the last Re

Not a Republican in authority repudi

not. On the other hand, Republican
Congressmen who supported these claim

The desperadoes know that these South

The Cost of Hayes's Election.
Fearful Burden to be Imposed on
The last REPUBLICAN Congress pa s
ed bills' for the payment of Southern
clain-B to the amount of $5,881,000.
These claims were worked up and
owned by a REPUBLICAN Southerc
Claims Ring, beaded by General E
Rice, the confblant of Belknap in th
post-tradership business. Circulars were
sent out by this REPUBLICAN South
ern Claims Agency, calling for the pres
entation of such claims. It is estimated
that these claims aggregate over $2,500,
Let tbe voters look at these figures and
answer whether they want to pay the
Total Southern claims $2,503,022,386
Amount to be paid by Ohio, $213,659,550
Amount for every person in
the State $65
Amount for every voter, ac
cording to the census,
About 200 bills containing and provid
ing for such claims were presented at
the late session of Congress. Several of
them were general bills to pay for all
property used or occupied by the Union
army, without reference to the loyalty of
the claimants. These claims were most
ly introduced by REPUBLICAN mem
here. They found no favor with the
Democrats, who rigorously limited awards
to LOYAL citizens whose clam s werei
the hands of tbe OKlui.AL owners.
The total amount was $74 453 or $5,
806,547 less than was allowed by tLe pre
ceding REPUBLICAN Congress.
The Constitutional amendment does
not prohibit the payment of these
claims it only prohibits the payment
of the Rebel debt. With REPUBLICAN
success there is nothing in the way.

Tilden is ausaetpilt. Of course the Repub
Mean journal that lied so abominably do
not publish the vindication. The New
York Nation, however, which supports
Hayes, is a creditable exception to this
couree of gratuitous meanness and abuse
"When," says the Nation, "we called on
Mr. Tilden a few weeks ago to answer the
charges of the New YorK Timet, we did
so in the fullest belief that his 'true in
come,' as made out by that paper, was
based on authentic data, or at all events
on reasonably creditable information
Now that we find that' it was for weeks
calling him a 'perjurer' and 'swindler' on
the strength of an estimate oi his income
which was partly the product of guess
work and partly ot invention, we feel as
if we almost owed an apology both to
him and the public for the amount of
attention the matter has received in our

Grant has called on the Army and mill

9,000 from Jersey cily, and 1200 from

in and around Washington Square, and
tbe various divisions were arranged in
twenty-three side streets and commenced
moving about nine o'clock.
The transparencies and inscriptions
attracted great attention, and cheers af

Other transparencies and banners were :

Other mottoes were 'The Bayonet

The Sixteenth Assembly Democrats'
banners read, 'The Governor's Own,"

scriptions were: ' March 4th Wait Til

in the Middle of a broken ring, with the
words "Honest Sam, the Ring Breaker."
Governor Tilden reviewed the proces
sion from a large stand erected in Union
Square. This Btacd was decorated with
flugs on top ; six great flnmirg torches
were erected on posts around Ihe outer
edge, and, as tbe sides of the stand were
swathed in red bunting dewn to the
ground, it looked as if a grand triumphal
car had been dri en up there and stop

Governor ascerded the steps he was fol
lowed by a rttinue of distinguished men,
and a dozen more marthals wearing

wound round with red, white and blue
ribons, made way for the Governor to an
