ViWby,. that's notjung, for so. .loyal a
county as Clinton, vhoie quaker farmers
grow rioh by beef-raising and fatten up-
npon 5-zO bonds by voting the Abolition
tioket. ! Ain't that right, Bro. Fisher,
and loyal, too, to "compel" you to pay
25 cents per pound for beef, in order to
enablo atockuraisera ani.butoher to help
pay the taxes ot the. bondholders, who
pay1 none? v Then; why do you grumble
at high priced beef,' high-priced: coffee,
sugar, ootton or high-priced anything
else, sinoe you vote for and support the
policy and party whioh have torced these
high prices upon the people ? n .
t. Taxes ANo'MoNEr Isteresi. The
average rate of takes in Ohio is two per
cent, on the assessed value of property
listed. The lawful, interest jot money
being bJi,, per oenf,', !one-thir4 of the in
oome is taxes, , It is ihe name with rents.
Ono third of , the rent, is consumed in
paying , taxes. J,, The peopld who wish to
shirk the payrja6nt of taxes, call in their
debts and put their' money in ; Govern
ment bonds; and. the , taxes they shirk
are , borne by other people'. 'I.Mr. Sham
Loyal haa one hundred' and fifty thou
sand dollars 'ot1 government bonds, and
he saves three thousand dollars a year in
taxes whioh his tieighuors have to' 'pay
for him., This is the case with' our State
and oounty taxes.' ' ' :
But to enable the United , States to let
the bondholder go free of tax, the peo
ple have, to bear a (ax on everything they
wear, everything they eat, fcnd everything
they do. , They must pay twenty mill
ions a year to the Chase banks .for the
trouble of giving. us three hundred mil'
lions of ahinplaste money,, They must
pay one hundred and twenty millions a
year to keep an army blaok and white, at
the south lo give the people republican
Go'vornment.x The bonds must bo taxed
-rmust be, taxed, and taxed., and taxed at
the full rate of. pne-trurd ot the; interest
as tha people of Ohio are taxed,' And
we must have a legislature that will rep
resent tha people the people, and not
