Ti e Democratic State Conven

pudiated the . Democratic Con
gressmen who took the "back
nay" steal, the Republican Poli
ticians and press are seeking their
assistance in this campaign.
The order for the execution of
th lvlndof Tmiiar. nrisnners has
been approved by the President
and Secretary of Warand they

Ten millions of dollars have
I a. t . 1 TT..!i. J
States Treasury since the back
pay swindle was perpetrate !. " A
large portion of the stolen money
is to be U6ed in Ohio for the pur
pose of electing Noyes Governor.
The Democracy ot Pennsylva
nia adopted the platform of the
Ohio Democracy, and nominated
the following ticket. Judge Su
preme Court, Jas. R. Ludlow, of
Philadelphia; State Treasurer, F.
M. Hutchinson, of Allegheny.
Morton's son in law, who is
now. Postmaster at Indianapolis,
robbed .the State of Indiana out
pt the nice little sum of $200,000,
while State Printer. Morton is
now in Ohio asking the people
to indorse the salary steal, Credit
Bex. Butler says, in his de
fence of the aalarv Bteal:" "All
our soldiers have received back
pay,-nd are as much 'thieves' as
thp members of Congress." But-.
Ijsr meant the soldiers who serv
ed in the army, and who had not
received any pay for months af
ter they enlisted, while their fam
ilies, were in want and suffering.
The . Republican platform and
press- of Ohio indorses Butler's
defence of the "salary steal."
We have been readiug Repub
lican papers with great care to
find out how it is, that Congress
men are vill aus for votiugin
Jayor of the salary bill, and
Grant is an honest patriot for ap
proving it. Up to this time we
don't quite see it. A good ex
plainer could find employment
TIiTj restoration of t'le Democ
racy is one grand essential of the
Republic to-day. It alone has
tl.e traditional greatness and the
political o do requisite for the
emergency. Armin.l its standard
all may Hack; into its purified
s&netuuiy all may enler. It alone
has the needed nucleus for an or
ganization which'sliull restore to
the nation the purity, nobility
and grandeur it iirsljatlained un-dt-r
Democratic guidance, and
from which it received its resplen
dent record. It is impossible tor
the Rvpubroun party to seek the
paths which made the Democra
cy gteat, and through it the na
lion. It is the most natuial and
only possible thing for the De
mocracy to do this. Hence the
day cannot be far distant when
all who believe in maintaining
the guarantees of the Constitu
tion will In :n l the Democratic
parn ah the only reliable agency
for hat purpose;
When you gt-t rijfht down to
the truth of the matter, all jhat
the great mass of the people
want, wish lor, pray Air, is- an
hoi. est, cheap government. They
are all interested in that all af.
fected by it. Give the people an
honest and cheap government
and on all minor questions of
State palicy they can and will
divide iulo parties. But when
any party corrupts the govern
ment making official life a reign
of dishonesty and hurdens the
people with oppressive taxes for
one thing ami another, the life
of that part' will not be of long
duration. Can ycii find tin hon
est man outside of the ring of office-holders
and office-seekers in
the republican paitybut what
will admit that it has become
dishonest and oppressive?
- .. . .
The Chicago Tribune says of
the salary grab: "We have been
informed aforetime, by as good
Republicans as there are in the
House of Representatives, that,
while the salary bill was pend
ing, General Grant could scarce
ly be induced to talk on any oth
er subject. Whatever matter of
state might be brought up in the
conversation, he would dismiss
it impatiently, hot adroitly, and
return to the only legislation in
which he evinced any interest,
viz, the increase of salaries. We
also know that the attendants at
the White House were the most
assiduous and efficient lobbyists
in favor of the grab. Recent de
velopments show that General
Grant not only encouraged the
passage, ol the bill, but that he
was the originator the prompter,
aud the 'whip,' as . well as the
signer of the bill."
The recent speeches ot Hon.
William Allen, who stands a re
markably good chance of taking
Noyes' chair at the State Capital
the first time begets up, show
that he both understands aud ap
preciates the questions and is
sues of the hour, that one iu par
ticular, which is of more impor
tance than all others combined,
ol a thorough and general re
form throughout all departments
of the government. Allen is the
most houest of men, and no form
of fraud or rascality would be
tolerated under his eye or within
It annoys the Republicans to
think that the Democracy of
Ohio have nominated a farmer,
a man deeply interested in agri
culture, as their candidate for
Governor. They are so accus
tomed to running lawyers and
politicians for Governor that they
think it an outrage that a farmer
should dare cast his eye toward
a high positiou. Hu-rah tor
Farmer Allen, of the Scioto val
The Administration Republi
cans don't like the Democratic
nominee for Governor of Ohio.
He is too old fashioned to in
dorse their schemes of corrup
tion, salary grab and Credit Mo
bilier swindles. They only favor
men who have been educated in
their school of corruption and
universal grab policy. -
Organize for victory, every
Democratic vote must be polled.
We can elect Allen for Governor,
and "By the Eternal" we will.
For the Democrat.
EATON, O., SEPT. 6th, 1873.
The subject of a Protective
Tariff, has been so much discuss
ed in this, aud other countries,
and by the ablest men too, ihat
it might seem egotistical for a
common faimerto give hii visws
on the subject. But as humble
as I claim to b, I think 1 can see
my own interest as well tis other
men can see it for me, and be
lieveing that the farmers are se
riously oppressed-by the so call
ed protection system, I claim
the right to be heard iu my de
fense. When an article i3 said t be
protected we understand I bat the
price ot that article is raised,
that is the consumer must pay
the amount of the duty extra to
Suppose that breaking Plows
can be manufactured in England
and sold iu this country tree of
duty, for ten dollars, but in this
country they cannot, be manufac
tured for le9 than twenty dollar.-.
Novv lor the sake of pro
tection, or in ord-.r that we m-iy
make our own plows, a duty ol
ten dollars is lcieJ. It is easily
seen that the pi iw uaker is :en
etited ad would be for a few
yea re-, or tint 1 capital would ft v
into his bus ri ess until plow mak
ing would be on a level with o'h
ir occupations, then the plow
maker would ask for a higher
duty, as has been the case with
our manufacturers ever sitw-e the
foundation of our government.
Now it must be evident that in
proportion as the plow maker is
the gainer, the farmers who buy
these plows must be the losers,
or what one has gained the ot her
has lost. But this is not all that
the farmer suffers by the ar
rangement, for if w-e do not buy
plows or the products ot otho
countries, they f course wil
have uothin'glo exchange for our
pork, beef, corn, wheat, &c. Now
can anyone tell me where the
protection to the farmer - comes
in, is not his foreign market in
jured, is he not compelled, by this
system, to pay more for what he
buys, and take less for what he
has to sell;'
But says the friend of protec
tion, is not the farmer prot"et-
in his wheat, co'n, pork, beef. &e.
I answer, no I A child ouan
to know better, notwithst u.di' :
the Gazette and Register say he
is. For the sake of gulling, and
for no other purpose, there are
duties levied on the ab;?ve nam
ed products, but how can it make
any "difference.. Tjtrre fai-trrer-whether
they be high, low, or
none at all; for have we nt at
all times a surplus of these pro
ducts on" hands. InBtead of de
pending on other countries" for
these pioducts we can almost
supply the world with them.
If we cannot manufacture as
cheap as our foreign neighbors,
the reason muet be that our coun
try is not so well adapted to it,
or that we cau find some other
occupation more profitable. That
is, we can raise vheat, corn,
hogs, beef, &c, aud exchange
them for manufactured articles,
aud get them cheaper than we
could make them ourselves.
.The nations of the earth do
not all live in one Zone, nor in
one Latitude. The products of
the soil is not, and cannot be thb
same. The wants and desires of
man depends upon his location
on the globe. Tea, coffee, cot
ton, sugar, and a thousand other
articles might be mentioned that
our climate will not produce.
Is there any one that cannot
see the benefit to Le derived
from a free interchange of com
modities. Thiscertainly was the
intention of the Creator, that the
intercourse between nations
be free, otherwise he would have
so arranged it that all nations
could have produced what their
I see that it would require too
much space to do this subject
justice, so I will close with what
has been said.
A Liberal, Republican.
It is too late now for members
of Congress or thovr friends to
attempt to deceive the people on
the '-Salary Grab'' question.
Those members who have not
given good evidence of having
returned their back-pay to the
Treasury may as well make up
their minds at once that it is
generally believed the money is
in their pockets.
President Grant, by Biguing
and thereby making a law out of
the bill that contained the salary
grab, increased his pay to one
hundred and thirty-seven dollars
Everywhere throughout the
whole country is the nomination
of William Allen, the Farmer
Statesman, hailed by the De
mocracy as the harbinger of sue
When the Hon. Win. Allen, of
Ross, received the telegram an
nouncing his nomination for
Govvrnof, at thu Democratic
Convention on the 6th .-or" Aug
ust, he was in his field engaged
in cutting oats. Like Cinciuna
tus of old, he was invited to leave
his agricultural pursuits -an I take
the helm -.of State and reprove
the fiscal rttem.es that reigns
all over the land in high places,
that honesty, integrity and econ
omy ma' again bo inaugured in
the State and in the Union. Ve
nerable in ears, profound and
eloqnent as a statesman, the peo
ple of Ohio have invoked his aid
iu restoring the State to the path
of economy and uprightness, that
accountability and integrity may
ouce more be found in high pla
ces, in lieu of political rottenness,
treachery, usurpation anil bold
and reckless venality. The na
tional government, from Grant
down, reeks with corruption,
Credit Mobilier and salary grabs.
The. whole American people aie
chaigcined atjd pttined at the de
fiant and shameless conduct of
the men in power. Farmers and
laboiing men, if you won hi re
buke the Butlers, the Grants, the
Mobilier and other thieves, give
your suffrages to honest William
Allen, the eage of Ross. Lima
In 1855, when the Democratic
party of Ohio lost power in the
State Government, handing it
over to the Republicans, the tax
es ou all sorts, State, county and"
local, only amounted to between
six and seveu million dollars
They now amount to twenty-Jive
million dollar-!. They have quad
rupled - in eighteen year, while
the population of the Slate has
not .increased twenty pt,r cent.
For this increase the RepubLcan
party is responsible. Is it not
time, farmers and tax-payers of
Preble county, that we return to
the days of "Old Hickory," when
honesty and economy wt re tl e
requi.-ities of office-h'ildinu? Vote
tor -Bill Allen and Equal Taxation.
We call attention of our re
publican readers to the following
extractfrom Gov. Morton's speech
at Athens, Ohio, on the back pay
.VTheprinciplo iuvolved in

the greatest injustice to say that
the members of the Forty Second
Congress who voted for back pay
have been guilty of Ftealing or
intending fraud upon the Treas
ury. Those that have taken the
money received it according to
law; a law they had as much
power to enact as any piher.''
This is .the "key-note" for. the
republican organs iu Oh'o to
play, is it ? A justification of the
increase ot salaries and back i.-n
steal. How do you like the sound
of this '"key-note," honest repub
