Wm. Allen Creates a Panic
at Canton, Ohio, and Democratic
Go Back On Him.
Canton. 0., Oct. 2. The
speech of William Allen, made
m this city a few days ago, was
strongly criticised by Mr, Louis
SchaefTer, a prominet Demo
crat of this city, who address
ed a large audience ' in the
Opera-house last night After
defining bis position politically
as a Democrat of the 1733-1709
school, he slated:
The main object of this meet
ing is to contribute in (.Haying
the fears and scares entei tain
ed by some ol the depositors
in our bank", who, hating be
come alnrmed through the re
ports of the financial crisis in
the East, have in several in
stances withdrawn their depos
its. This would not have been
the cae to the extent It was,
had not Colonel Wmi Allen,
candidate lor Governor on Sat
urday evening, while aM dress
ing the people here, told them,
b.v way of prediction, that 'The
National banks as organized
and established by the Repub
lican party are rotten to the
core; and mark my word, in
ten days from thia time (now,
mark, I give them but ten days)
every bank in the United
MatAs will tie closed, and you,
the laboring men, will not get
more th; n one dollar per day
lor your work, and only fifty
cents worth of beel for your
Now, it Colonel Allen said
this ho did it at the wrong
time and place; and if that is
the style of the eternal living
principles to which we are in
vited, the less we have ol them
and the sooner Allen returns
to Chillicothe the better.; Can
ton is a m anufaxtftriagj- cltr; ital
shops are at certain seasons of
thevear, and at this time, ex-'
peeling short accommodations
oi nur banks. You all know
the character of the men M
the head ol them; you all have,
di nervedly so unbounded con
fidence in them, and manufact
urers are pecuniarily and other
wise gond solid men; but then
the most unbounded confidence
may bn impeached. In a crisis
like the present, when there is
no real cnuse for it, a promi
nent man like Colonel Allen
has the power to do us mis
chief. Ue might almost as
well place the torch to our
shops as to come among us
and proclaim such incendixry
doctrines. The wiihdriwinK
of deposits ha, to a limited
extent, come, and owinjt prin
cipally to his efforts, suppoee
it continues; whit will be the
cousequence? No currency for
our manufacturer; they can't
pay their workingmen; you, or
many of you, will be thrown
out of employment; some of
the shops will have to work on
half time, and some may havo
to close temporarily when there
is no cause for it. The deposit
or withdrawing his funds takes
them home, locks them up, ana
places 'hem beyond legitimate
ue, the farmer thereby dam
aging his own prospects and
aiding in the redaction of the
prices for wheat and other pro
ducts. All that is requisite in
the crisis is to be calm, act
sensibly and have confidence
in our banks and manufactur
ing establishments. In place
of withdrawing, increase your
deposits, and in a few days all
will be well The latest news
from other cities is of the most
flattering and promising char
acter. Bogus political speech
es. Bogus banking, and Bogus
railroad projec's, will be spo
ken of in a lew days by all
well meaning men, as deserv
ing the same destiny.
Alter having spoken an hour
and a half, resolutions were
adopted declaring the confi
dence ot the people in their
banks, and that they would up
hold them and continue busi
ness at usual.
An Unfortunate Laundryman.
Wackup, a married man
ol Bridgeport, quit work early
the other afternoon, and went
home to fix np for the purpose
of spending the evening or
rather half the night, with a
number of his Iriends. lie
found his wife lying upon the
lounge enjoying a sick head
ache, but he couldn't find a
clean shirt. Mrs. Wackup said
his shirts were washed, but not
ironed, and she was too ill to do
it, and it was the girl's after
noon out A shade of disap
pointment clouded his brow,
and rushing into the kitchen
be slammed the door witb
much earnestness, and fortu
nately found an iron on the
range, nice and hot. Then he
dived into the basket of damp
ened clothes, and found one of
hi? shirts at the bottom just
as he expected. lie spread the
garment out on a table with
out first removing the oil cloth
cover, and hurriedly consulted
bis watch. Then be couldn't
find the iron-holder and substi
tuted his pocket handkerchief,
and after burning four ot his
fingers and breaking one of the
commandments, he landed the
hot iron on his shirt bosom
lie thought the gaiment had a
strange look, but supposed it
would assume its proper shape
when ironed and he shoved
the Iron np and down like a
jackplane. The labor seemed
so eay that he mentally said
he had a mind to follow the
business for a living. Then he
undertook to turn the shirt,
and just because it adhered to
the glazed table-cover, ho gave
it a violent jerk, adding at
least six inches more to the
split in the back.
Tl. U , . , L. i!..
x audi no iiiiiiceu lormenrsi
tiihfl that he had set the red-
hot iron on the tail of the gar
ment and scorched a hole In it
as large as his hand, and in his
hBste to remove the smoothing
machinp, he neglected to use
thf holder and dropped the hot
fraud on his choice toe; and
when Mrs. Wackup. who was
xtartled bv the intensity of hi
laniriiaee. entpred the kitchen
holdinff her head with hoth
hnnrN, she discovered her hus
band hopping about the room
on one foot and clasping the
other with both his llano's. The
svmpathv that Mrs. Warknp
tendered was not nf a natnre
that her Mistered husband
vearned for just at that partic
ular moment. She placed her
arms akimbo and indiennnMv
observed: "Ain't von ashamed
nf vonraelf, von old fool! dano
intr the can-ran nronnrl here
and vnur poor wile nearly dead.
toot And" here her eves rest
ed upon the wreck on the ta
hie "and the old idiot has
trone and ruined mv best
chemise! Oh, th the ."
Wacknp didn't tarrv to hear
his infuriated better half finish
the sentence, but adroitly
odffed the broom handle, and
limped out of the room and np
stairs to bed, without his sup
per. The next morning-he told
his friends that the reason be
failed to keep his engagement,
he was suddenly attacked with
the cholera morbus at the supper-table
and liked to have
died during the night.
A Word to Working People of
Mechanics, artisans, factory
hands, and people who labor for
a living, find it very difficult if
not impossible to keep the hands
free from stain. Hand Supolio
will not only remove every par
tide of stain, and what is called
"grained in dirt," but it will. also
keep the skiu soft and pliable,
rendering the muscular action as
quick and easy as is the case with
those who do not perform hand
labor- It is only 10 and 15 cents
a cake, according to sue. Every
mechanic should use it constantly
in f laoe of other eoapa.

nice and firm, but without any

now ready for polishing, but

Died From Hunger.
Ioidon, the B rmig-heait d
mother, has again suffMed one
of her children to perish un
heeded in the midst oi abund
ance and luxury. Among the
last victims appears .the name
of M. Henri Ryan, an ex-Paris
journalist, aged, 32, who died
in the streets of England's me
tropolis from hunger. Dis pa
paper having been suppressed
by the Military Governor, he
orossed the channel to London
in the hope of supporting him
se'f by teaching French and
translating. But the unhappy
man'was unable to find employ

lodgings. Without shelter for
his head, he walked the streets,
picking up crusts of bread un
til his strength gave way, and
he could no longer stand on
his feet. Alter a few days ol
this lile he was brought to the
workhouse, where the care and
attention bestowed upon him
came too late. He told his sad
story, and died of starvation.

as much of an effort against it

The Democratic party ob
tained the ascendancy In
this State in 1867, and during
the campaign the leaders had
been preaching "economy and
retrenchment" till the unso-'
phisticated believed they actu
ally meant it. In 1860, our
taxes were $20,243,615. In 1863
under Democratic retrench
ment they went up to $20,-
789,148. And in 1869 when the
Democracy had had still fur
ther opportunities for economy
they reached $22,232,877, an
increase of $1,979,262 within
two years. And this is & fair
specimen of Democratic "econ
omy and retrenchment'' and
ihe way in which they keep
their campaign promises.

The New York Times claim
that the events of the last two
weeks have tended to removo
opposition to specie resump
tion, and asserts that "no con
siderable portion of reasona
ble persons can now bo found
who believe that a return to
specie payment at the eailie6t
possible moment is not desira
ble." Tije Enquirer has farmer on
the brain. Its editcr is foolish
enough to suppose that all it
has to do is to dub its candi
dates as farmers, or say they
are great friends of the farmer?,
