WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
A few days ago as we were ri
ding from Orrville to Wooster,
two democrats in an adjoining
seat were talking over political
affairs. One was a Wayne county
man, and the other from Stark
county. Not knowing us, they
didn't seem to care particularly
whether we heard them or not.
The Wayne county man said
among other things that the
show for them in that county
this fall was very poor. That the
Treasury trouble was working
bard against them. Imally he
said that this delalcation busi
ness had justcut down the Cam
paign Fund about Twenty
Ihouaand Dollars. Now here
is a mystery to us to know what
connection the defalcation in the
Treasury had with the democrat
ic Campaign money in that coun
ty. Twenty Thousand dollars is
a good round sum to spend in
one county for election purposes,
If theGreelyites felt that it would
require that sum to carry, the

down with corruption? Is this
twenty thousand dollars to stop
the breach? What does it mean?
Tickets can be had by calling
on the Central Committee.
Horace Greeley has followed
his own advice and, gone West.
Information has been received
here that his principal object in
going there is to hnd bait luver.
He is promised with a free pass
(granted by the people) up that
stream. He will be accompani
ed by a label attached to the
tail of his old white coat, and
several other similar articles too
numerous to mention. Tom
Nast will see the, party off, and
make a sketch of the sad and
"Gen. Grant has never been de
feated, and he never will be."
GREELEY STICKS TO HIS LIBEL ON
The veteran defenders of the
Union, the fathers, and sons of
those who fell in defense of theUnion
and those who believe that the men
who fought for the Union have a
right to express their sentiments
as to who should administer the
Government of the Union, will take
notice that j3rccley ,has not re
tracted or modiQed one word of
his atrocious libel on thc -soldiers,
uttcrd at Pittsburg. His attention
lias been over and over again called
to this matter and the falsehood or
the assertion insisted on,but he does
not retract or modify a single ex
pression. He stands' convicted of
wanton and malicious slander
against the men who fought, sufferd
and periled their lives that the Union
might be preserved.
Mr. Greeley insists that all other
questions must be kept in abeyance
until it is settled' that "al the reb-
eljwhite men of this country shall
have equal rights with all the loyalj
black men." He puts it in that
way because he insists that the
black men already have all the
rights of white men provided them
by the Republican party.
But how long would that be true
under a Greeley Administration?
How long before the contest over
the equal rights of the black would
be renewed after the equal rights of
the rebel white had been secured?
A help to the answer is given in
the attempt of Greeley's supporters
in West Virginia to fasten on the
Constitution of that State a clause
which says that "any white, citizen
entitled to vote, and no other, may
be elected or appointed to any of
fice." No proscription about that
of course! Another clause prohibits
white and colored children attend
ing the same school. Equal rights
their, of course.
The reduction of the public debt
during the month of August was
110,733,000. Steadily and honestly
the Grant Administration proceeds
in its policy of reducing the public
debt. Ten million seven hundred
and thirty-five thousand dollars of
bonds have been bought and can
eeleel since the 1st of August, thus
reducing the interest $643,000, mak
ing an aggregate reduction of the
national obligations, for a single
month, $11,578,000. Thus the Re
publican Administration goes stead
ily forward carrying out the finan
cial policy of the part- collecting
the taxes honestly and faithfully,
and appropriating the proceeds to
economical expenditures in support
of the Government, as directed by
the laws passed by a Republican
Congress and for the purchase of
Government bonds. The democrats
as reformers would soon change this
system if they should get the power
to do so. Greeley's schemes and
vagaries would soon be brought into
play with destructive effect. He has
more than once declared his hostil
ity to "BoutwcIPs" policy," as he
GREELEY AND THE SOLDIERS.
The day previous to the arrival
of Horace Greeley in Pittsburg, the
Soilders and Sailors assembled in
convention, unanimously passed
the following resolution:
Resolved, 4th: i'Wo cherish no
spirit of revenge towards our lellow
citizens ofthe south; the magnani
mity of our late commander-in-
cluef on the field of Appomatox
was a sufficient pledge of the Union
army that the 'bloody chasm' of the
war was closed, 'and with malice
towards none but with charity to
ward all.we extend the right hand of
fellowship to all those who. except
in good faith the result of the war
and who will extend to every Amer
ican citizen of whatever race or
color the rights which arc solemnly
guaranteed by the constitution of
tueUnitcd states and the laws made
in pursuance thereof.
Mr. Greeley is supposed to be
man who reads the uewspapers, yet
with this declaration confronting
him fairly and squarely in the face,
lie stepped out upon the balcony of
the St. Charles' hotel and .said,
The city of Pittsburg has recently
witnessed a rehearsal of the pomp
and pageantry, the blazonry and cir
cumstance of civil war. A very
large number of men were collected
here, at avast expense, with the
single purpose of rekindling the
bitterness and hatred, tlie animosity
and antipathies, -the fears and ex
ultations of civil war, for the ad
vantage of apolitical parti-."
This was a direct contradiction
of the avowal made by the Soldiers
in their Convention. They frankly
acknowldged that they cherished'no
spirit of revenge towards our fellow
citizens ofthe south;' that they ex
tended "the right hand of fellowship
to all these who accept in good faith
the results of the war" and "with
malice toward none, but with chari
ty for all." What could be said
inoic explicity? Yet Mr. Greeley,
maddened because of the Convcn
lion and its conciliatory utterances,
took occasion to insult the brave
men who had rescued the Union
from dissolution by attributing to
them motives directly in conflict
with those expressed their resolu

Every person that ever heard of old
Democratic Holmes County, would
naturally suppose that it would be
a perfect success, as she claims to
be the banner county of the State.
This "Grcat Mass Meeting" was ad
vertised for some three weeks bv
the Farmer, and by flaming posters
over the whole county, and it was
announced that it was to be a great
love-feast of the Liberal Republican
ami Democratic-Liberal' party, and
all were told to come and rejoice.
Trains were chartered, drummers
sent out all over, the county to en
courage the faithful to be on hand
speakers from the great State of
Tennessee were" imported to elec
trify the people, and every prepara
tion made for a big crowd.
The morning of the 25th came;
the old court house bell rang; the
advance guard of the bread and but

ing, stroked their whiskers, winked
to their brethren in aims, looked

you that old Holmes will this day

dismay and fear to the hearts of the
Black Republicans,forasold Holmes
goes so goes the State.
Twelve o'clock arrives. Things
aijs not looking right dark clouds
hang around the brows of the lead
ere. The train arrives from Napo
leon, with just twenty-four men and
six boys, and they do say that a vote
was taken on the train which show
ed a majority of six for Grant. The
cannon that was used at Napoleon
in the defence of Holmes county in
the late war, was placed.upon an ill,-
aaapteu larm wagon, and formed a
conspicuous object in the grand pa
rade. Consultations were held concern
ing where tbegrand pow wow should
be held. At la9t they concluded
that the old court house was the
place, as it was small, and it would
not look to the world so much like
a failure, as they can say in the next

speech consisted of charges against
Grunt and his administration.-and
that the Republican party was try
ing'to elect Grant for the purpose
of centralization of power that

become the emperor of this country.
After getting off some more charges
he exploded and retired in good or
der, thinking, no doubt, that if he
did not convert some Republicans,
he ought to, as he slashed around
the circle like a bull in a china shop.
Next upon the bill of fare came the
federate rebel soldier from Tennes
see, McRae, who announced that he
was a Republican-Democrat, but
acknowledged he still was the same
Democrat he always was. We think
he was badly reconstructed, and
should have, had one or two more
doses of whitewash before he would
make a good liberal. His whole
speech consisted in complainings of
me condition oi ins beloved South,

them out of their money, and that

away to about 75 or 100, and the

We must confess-that it was the
most complete fizzle that we ever
heard of. We could not help see

LIBERALISM IN MISSOURI.
Liberalism in Missouri has proved
a failure. All attempts there to se
cure Reform by a coalition with the
Democracy have proved abortive.
It was in Missouri that Liberalism
had its birth and Gratz Brown was
its first-born. He has been so poor
a Reformer that the Republicans
who stood as his godfather have
abandoned him with disgust and
repudiated their action at the christ
ening. They do not admire his
soft shell crab and cherry proclivi
ties, and they condemn in unmeas
ured terms his leniency to the Ku
klux who have outraged many citi
zens and driven them from the State,
while others have been murdered in
cold blood. They do not propose
to give him the chance of becoming
President as did Andrew Johnson,
and they are back again in the good
old fold of the Republican party,
and working for Grant and Wilson.
Missouri has tried Greeley's Recon
ciliation plan for two years or more
and it doesn't work.
MR. GREELEY AS A POLITICIAN.
Eccentricity and fickleness are
Mr. Greeley's traits; as a politician,
he has bolted and advised bolting;
he has opposed the nomination or
election of every President who has
been chosen for thirty years; he has
quarreled with ever Administration;
he has assailed the character of
those he differed with, wantonly and
savagely; he has imputed corrup
tiou to others merely for not voting
or thinking as he did; he sought by
intrigue the defeat of Mr. Lincoln
after he was nominated the second
time, and as late as September 2,
18C4, wrote secret letters, which
have since come to light, to concoct
measures to prevent Lincoln's elec
tion; he strove to poison President
Grant against capable and honest
Republicans,and advised him to ex
clude from his councils men trained
in public affairs; he has recom
mended unfit men for office, and in
sisted on their appointment; after
indorsing and applauding every
thing involving principle or relating
to the public interest done by the
Administration, he has struck at
the President on account of "pat
ronage," and bolted the party, after
manoeuvring more than a year to
get its nomination.
GREELEY'S "PROSCRIPTION" LIE.
Greeley has been peddling along
the line of his "swing around the
circle" the f.illowiug statement,
scarcely a speech in his western
"swing" failing to have it:

are only two or three hundred felt

mon rights of American citizens.

Greeley's Eulogy on Grant.
What Horace Said of President
Grant and His Administration
Mr. Horace Greek- has been trav
elling through the country on an
electioneering tour, as the candi
date ofthe Democratic party and the
rival of General Grant for the Presi
dency. In his speeches at Pitts
burgh, Columbus, Cincinnati, Lousis
ville, Indianapolis, ami in Cleveland,
Mr. Greelej- has unsparingly de
nounced the Republican policy and
administration as cruel, revengeful,
dictatorial and corrupt, and has de
manded his own election as essen
tial to the "reconciliation" of the
South with the North, and to the
"purification" of our politics and
civil service. We now set over
against these denunciations and
claims of Mr. Greeley, his own opin
ions of President Grant and his ad
ministration, as expressed by Mr.
Greeley himself in the leading ed
itorial of the New York Tribune of
Friday, July 8th, 1870, only a little
more than two years ago, as follows:
From the Xew York Tribune, July.S, 1670.
The President hasl lately made
some appointments, local and nati
onal, that have provoked comment.
He favored a policy with reference
to West India annexation which
has not met the approval of Con
gress. 1 here are rumors of some
impending Cabinet changes.
Thereupon the cheerful prophets
of defeat come out vigorously in
their tavorite characters. Tuey are
sure that Grant is becoming very
unpopular. Ihey regard his course
as ruinous to the Republican party.
They feel sure that his Administra
tion is dropping to peces. The
fact that these prophets' are mostly
Democrats, or worse, might with
some prejudiced people, disturb
confidence in the veracity if not in
the sagacity, of their predictions
Nevertheless they make a certain
noise, and command a certain atten
tion, which may warrant giving
them a little notice.
What is to complain about? We
have not favored the San Domingo
movement; but is it strange or. a
crime that an American President
should .wish to aggrandize his
country? We have not always been
able to like General Grant's appont-
ments; but we do not just now re
call any President, all of whose ap -
pointments wedidlike. W hat would
gentlemen have? Do they remem
ber how they felt about Mr. Lin
coln's Alaska project, or a later spec
illation in the Danish West Indies?
Can they recall any particular set of
nominations lor JNew lork City
tuat was received with consenting
cheers from all parties and factious?
General Grant made one pledge,
at the outset which did almost as
much to endear him to the popular
heart as did his great sen-ices in
the field. "I shall have no policy,"
he said, "to enforceagaihst the will of
the people. He has kept his word.and
we do not doubt that he will keep
it to the end. lhere never was a
President who subordinated his own
more thoroughly and unreservedly
tothafot the people;, there never
was a President who submitted
more cheerfully to the adverse ac
tion of Congress; there never was a
President more unpretending, less
exacting, more sincerely anxious, to
execute the laws, preserve public
tranquility, and discharge fairly
and impartially all the duties of his
office. He thinks, as a great many
others think, that it would bo wise
to secure a lootnoid in tne west
Indies. The Senate disagrees with
him, and the matter is ended at
once. He thinks, as a great mam-
others think, that a certain set of
appointments for New York City
will strengthen the public service
and promote the triumph of sound
political principles. The Senate
may possibly disagree with 'him
again; and, if it should; the whole
matter will pass out ot sight as quiet
ly as the Baez treat-. Thank
Heaven! we have a President who
has no policy to enforce against the
will ot the people.

STANTIAL AND ENDURING
Now we submit that Mr. Greeley
in what he said in 1870, has answer
ed every single charge laid against
the President and the Republican
policy, cither before or since that
time. According to Mr. Greeley's
own showing, General Grant has
fulfilled, to the extent of liis ability,
the two prime conditions of a good
administration as laid down in Mr.
Greeley's campaign -speeches "re
conciliation" and "purification."
And we ask Mr. Greeley, In what
hns President Grant failed silice
July, 1870, to carry out the same
line of policy which you then prais
ed him for pursuing? Has he un
dertaken since them to enforce a
policy of his own against the will
of the people? Has ho not put m
fore a new and approved system for
the further reform of the civil, ser
vice? Has ho not continued to
"fairly collect the public revenue?"
Has.be not made large (larger)pay-
ments on the public debt? Has he
not "so managed the. finances that
we can (and have) (still more)
largely reduced taxation?'' Has he
not "sedulously preserved peace
abroad," and settled by treaty and
arbitration the most threatening
questions of international dispute?
Has not reconstruction been com
pleted, and amnesty been still furth
er exteudeduutif not an ex rebel is
disfranchised, except a few from

President's "inlluence been steadily
for the restoration of harmony -and

Mr. Greeley in the name ofthe ico-
ple, that "opinions cannot differ in
