The committee invite the hearty co
operation of all persons of whatever
politics who are opposed to Credit Mo
biliers and salary grabs, whether in
Washington or in Vinton county; all
persons who are tired of being bnr
dened by a ring with increased county
taxes, useless, extravagant and careless
expenditure of county money;
All persons who are in favor of lift
ing Vinton county out of debt, and
maintaining her credit on a par with
that of properly managed counties, are
invited to act with us in an effort to
bring about a reform in the financial
management of the county.
The steady increase of taxation, to
gether with the steady increase of
county debt represented by unpaid
and depreciated county orders, demand
that the taxpayers take the manage
ment of the county out of the hands
of the ring which has brought about
this unfortunate Btate of affairs, and
elect men to office who are in sympathy
with the people rather than with the

Tub Cincinnati Enquirer is
laboring to prove that Wrn.
Allen was a Union man daring
tbe war and supported tbe gov
ernment in its time of trial. It
could prove that Alex. II. rite
phecs was a Union man by tbe
same kind of evidence. Both
made good Union speeches, bat
neither had the backbone to
stick to the sentiments they
knew to be right and patriotic,
and Stephens made amends to
his section by becoming tbe
lieutenant of Jeff. Davis, while
Allen showed his fealty to bis
party by serving as Vallandig
ham's chief of staff, each trying
by extra zeal to compensate (or
their unguarded utterances- in
favor of the nation.
Thk Postmaster General is
very confident that the aboli
tion of the franking privilege
will result in a very material
increase in tbe revenues of the
postal service, lie is ot the
opinion thkt the increase will
be 8 j great that the depart
ment will become entirely self
Yes; but how about the
Treasury, War, Navy, Execu
tive, Judicial and Legislative
departments with a deficit of
three or foar millions to pay
their postage by reason of the
abolition of the franking priv
Iege? It is there out of the
United States Treasury that
Mr. Cresswell gets the cash to
make bis department "self sus
taining." We would like to see
where the people are benefit
ted. If Mr. 0. can make the
public rich and lurnish money
to pay off our national indebt
edness by taking money out of
other departments and making
up the deficit in bis own, he U
almost as smart a financier as
the Pendletonians, who propos
ed to pay the whole debt by
giving their notes for the
amount as fast as the preues
could print them. One is just
about as great a humbug ps
The official report 6hows the
Fairfield county defalcation to
have been under estemated.
Instead of 87,000, as reported
tbe official report shows
$142,515.71, or about
$5 per head for every
man, woman and child
in the county. That
amount has been descovered,
and no person knows what
amount of stealing undis
covered. Fairfield has been
Democratic time out of mind,

for Auditor for the last thirty
five years, lie knew just how
to set 'em up, conciliate the
ring, and keep things moving
smoothly. Lie was such a ciev
er fellow, and such a good

not do without bis services,
A good deal of stuff is being
written about Win. Allen, Dem
ocratic candidate for Governor,
as a farmer, lie is about as
much of a farmer as General
Noyes, the differencce being
that Allen owns a large farm,
Noyes, a small one. Both are
lawyers. There is but one gen
uine, two fisted, practical farm

didate for State Treasurer, and
he don't make any blow about
But if it comes to buncomb
of this kind, every candidate
on the Democratic State ticket
who is known outside of the
township in which he resides,
is a lawyer.
We denounce every member
of Congress, whether Republi
can or Democrat, who support
ed the law increase of salaries
or received and retained the
money procured thereby."
And yet every Democratic
Congressman from Ohio has
drawn and kept his back pay,
and Lew Oampbell, one of the
number was one of the leading
spirits of the convention, ca
vorting around with the money
in bis pocket, and was one oi
the first speakers to "ratify
Tub Ross County Register
says: "We will not lack for
sensation at the next term of
our Common Fleas Court. We
will have three trials for mur
der, to wit: John S.Blackburn,
lor the killing of Mary Jane
Lovell; Valentine Weis, for the
killing of Summersett; and
Johnson, for the killing ot
Boggs. Tbe two first are un
der indictment for murder in
the first degree."
The Chicago Times calls
Judge Thurman the Mephisto-
phelian captain of the dead
carcass ot Democracy. This is
sad, coming as it does from a
paper heretofore esteemed the
leading organ of the Demo
cratic party in the Northwest.
What an Old Democrat Thinks
What an Old Democrat Thinks HAMDEN, O., Aug. 12, 1873.
Editor Record: I notice in
the Enquirer of August 6, a
meeting of the Democracy and
Liberals ot Vinton county lor
the purpose of appointing del
egates for the State convention
to be held at Columbus and al
so to choose seven delegates to
represent Vinton county in the
Judicial Convention at Torts-
mouth, and the Senatorial Con
vention at Gallipolis at some
future day. I notice W. V.
Belford, M. R. Potter, 0. T.
Gunning and J. W. Bowen were
appointed delegates to the
State Convention, and U. S
Claypoole, J. M. McGillivray,
C. W. Holland, 0. T. Gunning.
Wm. Baughman, J. W. Bowen
and T. A. Murray were ap
pointed delegates to the Sena
torial and Judicial Convention.
Now, Mr. Editor, I am a reader
of the Enquirer and have sup
ported the Democratic party
lor about twelve years. I have
noticed that IheEnquirer for the
last fivo or six years has been
full of slang and abuse in re
gard to the Grant family and
relations holding office, Ac.
Now please examine the ap
pointment of tbe delegates an
nounced in the Enquirer of the
6th of August and see what you
think of the principle set forths
in those appointments, and see
whether there is anything,
as the Enquirer would say,
Grantish in them; see it there
is a representation of Vinton
county or merely a represent
ation of two townships of the
county. There ara but two
delegates appointed for all of
the conventions that do not re
side in Elk township. If the
Democratic party wish to pros
per and elect any part oi the
ticket which they may nomin
ate, I would advUe that the
county be represented in place
of the little family in McAr
thur. There are plenty oi good
honest men living in other
townships in the county that
would make good delegates,
then the county wouU be fairly
represented in the conventions,
and the parly will be more suc
cessful, lor we don't intend to
support the little family in Mc
Arthur, or any of their nomina
tions until we have a fair rep
resentation of tbe county in
our conventions. We have
twelve townships in our coun
ty. Only two are represented
Horrible Railway Accident.
Chicago, Aug 17. A terri
ble accident occurred at hall'
past 10 last night, near Le
na on t, on the Chicago & Alton
Railroad. An incoming freight
train collided with the south
bound express passenger train,
almost entirely wrecking the
latter, killing six persons out
right and fearfully injuring
some thirty-seven others, many
of whom, it is said, will die.
The cars caught fire, and a
number of the injured are
burned badly, while others
were scalded by hot water
from the locomotive boilers.
Lemout is about twenty
miles south ot this city, and
the accident was not known
here, except to railroad of
ficials, until morning, and then
only to parties who happened
to ascertain that surgeons had
been sent for to go to the
wrecked train. It is impossi
ble to give full particulars at
present writing, but they will
be sent later, among thoce
dangerously injured is Hon. J.
VV. Smith, Warden of the 111.
Chicago, Aug. 17. The to
tal number of the killed, and
dead ot their injuries, by the
collision on the Chicago & Al
ton R. K., near Lemont, last
night, is up to three o'clock
this afternoon, eleven, and, ol
the wounded thirty-five.

Jealousy, and What Came of it.
One Patrick Sullivan the
name tells the place of birth-
lived in Huntington township,
blessed with a cabin, wife and
children, yet he was not hap
py. Instead of being always
satisfied by the loves of that
dear duck of a wife, he sought
the "strange woman," in the
person of one Martha Tyler,
who was known to retail her
virtue for money, aud upon
her, Patrick, unmindful ot hi;
nuptual vow, wasted all his
spoony endearments and ready
cash. Martha succumbed to
his sersuaslve measures of ab
sorbing devotion, and recipro
cated every advance and took
in every dollar Patrick carried
in his bifurcates, while tbe off
spring of the son of Erin were
allowed to go enhungered and
withoutmeat. Mrs. Sullivan,
knowing -that patient prayer is
a powerful purchase, tried its
efficacy, but failing to move
the heart now become common
in its loves, secured her little
pistol on last Thursday eve
ning with the avowed inten
tion of sending Martha to that
far off country where the good
things of earth are multiplied
and intensified. Thither tbe
insulted spouse repaired, but
not being lamiliar with the
prehensile features ot Martha,
she mistook her sister Mary,
who was dandling a baby at
the lime,' for the insatiable, se
ductive Martha, and pointed
ber little pistol at her, the ball
entering the left shoulder, lodg
ing in the neck. Slill suppos
ing that sho had given Martha
over to an undertaker, he
withdrew, and shortly after
