The Work of Fourteen Years.
i A contrast between the beginning and
the end of Republican ism between the
first platform and the present policy of the
ruling party between what that party
promised, and what It is doing and has
done, would be so instructive that we are
constrained to present H to our readers.
The Republican party, as a national or
ganixation, Is stM youthful not quite
fourteen years old yet it has achieved a
stage of crime and corruption that no
other party ever reached in half a century
of powr. Indeed, i has actually com
pleted the falsification of all the leading
assertions, and. the violation of all the
boasted principles on which it first ap
pealed to the sympathy and confidence of
the people. In proof of this we quote its
own admitted record. The. Republican
platform of 1856 drew its inspirations
from the Kansas episode, and the fourth
resolution of it relating to Kansas was lt
leading feature. It is as follows :
Bssoived, That while the Constitution nr the
United States wu ordained and established by the
people in order to form more perfect anion, estab

This was the virtuous proclamation ti
the Republican party in 1856. , How
startling) contrasts with the policy, the
acta, the army orders, the reconstruction
statutes, and the declared dogmas of that
party in 1871 Every sentence of the
resolution we have quoted is an arraign
ment of the party that adopted it : it has
committed and is committing every one of
the crimes it then, and there denounced.
If the people have not been alarmed and
stimulated to general opposition by its
usurpations, it is because it has awed and
subdued the people by armed intimidations,
and stupefied them with its corruptions.

How the Debt is Being Paid.
[Extract from the speech of Mr. Voorhees,
at Indianapolis, Ind., March 31.]
But the party now in power is filling
the country with a loud and pressing
claim to its gratitude for having, as it is
alleged, reduced tne public debt wr-lnn the
past year about eight millions. On this
int, Governor Morton made the tollow-
g assertion :
" During ' the nrst eleven months . or
General Grant's administration, the pub
lic debt has been paid off to the amount
of $80,649,971, which has been done by
the application of the surplus revenues to
that purpose, while, during the last year
of Mr. Johnson's administration, the debt
was only reduced $5,959,718, although the
taxation was greater than it is now."
Even if this were true, what does it
prove, to the credit of the Administration ?
Where, beneath the sun, arc the people of
the earth paying such an amount of taxes
as the American people are to-day yielding
Tip to the Federal authorities What other
government now in existence,in either hem
isphere, levies such a contribution on its
citizens, in proportion to their numbers
and resources, as the American Republic ?
Before the war, seventy millions a year
was a heavy assessment for federal expen
diture. Now the blighting column, foots
up nearly four hundred millions a year for
the same purpose.
And in the face of these fact the Sen
ator from Indiana males a bold claim of
merit that some portion of this tremen
dous taxation has been applied to the
Ement of bonds. It is a boast that not
ie all of this" terrible sum taken from
people has been squandered and
wasted in reckless expenditures. It is an
assumption of virtue, because out of the
vast millions in their hands the Govern-4
ment officials used a small fraction to re
lieve the people from debt. Surely, it is
no difficult task for a man to pay a debt
If boundless treasure belonging to others
are given to him in trust for that purpose.
There is wickedness, however, here in
this connection that baffles the power of
human tongue properly to denounce. It
is claimed that eighty millions of bonds
have been redeemed. IT so, how has it
been doner Have they paid them accord
ing to law or according to the rule of rob
bery? By -the plain provisions of the
contract, as I have demonstrated from the
most eminent Republican authorities, they
are payable in legal tender notes. In the
very teeth of this contract, the Secretary
of the Treasury announces that he paid
them in gold at a time when gold was.
worth twenty per cent, more than the
kind of money which was legally due to
the bondholders. This Republican official,
therefore, in open violation of law, made
a present to the usurer of your money,
your sweat stained taxes as follows :
Twenty cents on every dollar; twenty
dollars on every hundred ; two hundred
dollars on every thousand ; two thousand
dollars on every million, and exactly fix
tees millions one hundred and twenty
nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety
four dollars on the whole amount which
the Senator says has been "thus redeemed
and paid off. Over sixteen millions in this
meager transaction taken directly from
yourv pockets and placed in the coffers of
the bondholder, with no more law to sup
port it than there is for an act of piracy on
the high seas ! There can be no answer
to this, save a confession of guilt, and
there is uo escape from its blistering in
famy. Over sixteen millions taken before
your very eyes and bestowed as a bare
gratuity, a naked gift, on the full mono
polist. Is this the system by which you
wish the debt to be paid ? It is a shame
lees robbery. Shall it continue? It is a
naked and confessed plunder of the poor,
in order to add to the stores of the rich.
It is committed in your view, and de
liberately avowed in your hearing. Shall
it stop, or shall it go on. Will you uphold
an Administration that has its favorite
class, for whose benefit it seizes your taxes
in oenance oi law ? There is no denial
that can be made. The sixteen millions
are in excess of the contract. Thev
legally belong to the people and should be
back in their nands. They are illegally in
the bands of the bondholder, and should
be taken away. And the Administration
which placed them there should be driven
But the strangest and most extraordi
nary feature of financial legerdemain ever
known in this country betore, remains to
be told. Though your earnings have been
taken and more than sixteen millions of
them thrown like offal to a shoal of hun
gry sharks, yet the interest bearing bond
ed debt has not been reduced ! The loud
pretense that it has been diminished a sin
gle dollar, is simply a partisan falsehood
now resounding from one ocean to the
other from partisan lips, and in the col
umns of a partisan press. I hold here in
my hand the official " statement of the

General Ple asanton used to tell an
amusing Indian story. He was once, while
stationed at a frontier post, surrounded by
threatening bands of Cheyennes. He
wished very much to negotiate a treaty

his power. At last he succeeded in cap
turing a young Indian of rank, whom he
held as a hostage. One day this captive,
sullenly stalking about the fort, came upon
a soldier who, for want of better amuse
ment, was playing with a child's jumping
jack. The savage was transfixed with
wonder and admiration. He watched the
antics of the little figure in breathless
silence for some minutes, then turned and
ran past the sentinels, leaped all obstruc
tions, and escaped from the fort. In a
short time, however, he returned, heading
a deputation of chiefs, who,fter spending
an hour or so in wrapt contemplation of
the jumping jack, held a solemn council,
and negotiated the desired; treaty, stipu
lating, as the most important condition,
that the marvelous little toy should al
ways remain at the fort.

man says : " Place your oats in a heap on

wife's Sour scoop will do and throw the
oats, with a light turn of the ivrist, to the
other end,, of the floor, against a gentle
wind. A little practice will soon enable
you to throw it in a half circle, and at the
same distance. Sweep off now and then
if you have much, the utmost circle of
seed, the light oats for feed, and the weed
seed to burn. You will now have seed
oats worthy to sow, without buying at $5
per bushel. I have seen oats grown in
Sweden until I was forty years old, but
never saw a heavy crop where the seed
was not selected as above."

to coarse manure taken from the barn

HOW THE PEOPLE TEST THEIR TRUTH.
This Is not an age when people on
whatever thev see In the nubile iournals. Fifty
or sixty years ago when the accuracy of a state
ment that had appeared m one of the gazettes
"News Trotters'5 of the dav. was Questioned
was considered a sufficient answer to all cavil to
aav. kk IT must bo so. for I read It In the heave pa
per." It Is hot so now. Newspaper assertiona
most be verified before they are taken for grant
ed, and this Is especially the case aa regards state
ments setting forth the remedial properties of
DTonrietary medicines. For example : It waa not
until the tonic and alteaexlve properties of Hos
tetter's Stomach Bitters bad been deliberately
and thoroughly tested by thousands, and found to
be in -rlect accord with the printed claims pnt
forth In its, behalf, that It was accepted by the
public at large as a Standard Remedy. Bat when
mnltitndes who bad resorted to it aa a safeguard
against malarious fevers, a cure for Indigestion
and biliousness, a means of- strengthening the
frame, cheering the spirits and Imparting constitu
tional vigor, came forward and testified that its
beneficial effects had exceeded their most san
guine expectations, of course the world believed
To resist such proofs was impossible. Great care
hae been taken from the beginning not to overstate
the merits of the Bitters. Exaggeration and bom
bast have been the death of many prcparationa
that might otherwise have survived. They were
" weighed in the balance sad found wanting."
Hostetter's Bitters, on the contrary, haya never
been announced In grandiloquent language as a
enre for every bodily in, but simply as a pure
harmless vegetable specific, possessing remarka
ble invigorating, regulating, anti-blllons and an
tlseptic properties. This Is exactly what the pub
lic know the medicine to be, and Its enormous
sales is an argument In its fiver.
