DOES THE LABORING MAN
PAY ANY TAXES.
While tho producing industries of
the country, are unjustly taxed, and
the almost intolerable burdens of
the war rest upon those who fought
the battles and made the sacrifices,
those who filled the land to produce
supplies, and those who labored Jo
the workshops, the organs ot the
Radicals are asserting that the
woalthy bondholders, are the men
who pay all our revenues. The
organ of , the Radicals of Vinton
county; has sneeringly,,said that
not one laboring man in every hun
dred pays a penny of taxes to the
government, directly. True the
laboring man does not pay his taxes
directly to the . Government,, but
every man of sense knows that the
consumer pays the tax upon everv
article manufactured by capital. A
practical working-man, a few days
ago, being in our offico, handed us
the following, which in itself is a
volume of argument to show that
tho poor man does pay taxes I
".Radical legislation requires the
consumer to pay all taxes. It taxes

Tho laboring man of the country,
who owns a little house and lot,
which he has earned by toiling from
early morning to night, pays State
tax, county tax, school tax, town tax

door neighbor, who is a bondholder
owning $50,000 in bonds, pays no
tax whatevor, draws his interest in
gold, and laughs at his more uu
fortunate poor neighbor, who hns
his money in a little home I If the
masses of the laboring men desire
the equal taxation of every species
of property according to its real
value, Government bonds and other
securities included; if they want
one currency for the Government
and tho people, the laborer and the
office holder, tho pensioner and the
soldier, the producer and tho bond
holder, they will not vote tho iZadi
cal ticket, but will vote for that of
th6 Democracy. Just go and vote
for a change anyhow.

The Republican party is the sole
manager of the finances of this
country the affairs of the country
aro eutirely controlled by that
party. For many months past, we
have informed the readers of this
paper that the finances have been
mismanaged that the management
of the public funds wasia the hands
of the most wicked and dishonest
men. And we have noticed in a
small piece of paper that is "daubed
over'.' each week, in a little room
opposite the hotel stabl,Bome ','vory
smart," sneering sayings about "the
financial editor of the Enquirer."
We never made any reply,, because
there was nothing to repjy too. The
little paper has never jyet denied
any of our charges or that Congross
has so legislated the finances of the
country that the people are in a
terrible state of distrejsl But we
will Btop. We will lot th Cincin

paper, and generally circulated in
Vinton county, say a foy words.
Now, never wilt a sneering word
appear in the little 'bit of "daubed

"the financial editor" of the Gazette
no indeed, not a word! In an
article on the projected funding
scheme known as the "Funding
Bill" before Congress, the Gazette
of a few days ago, said : ,
-'But while Dnauoial oharVttanlsm is

plainly admitted, by the best Re

the office seekers, the bond

and papers of the wicked
Radical party, may, continue
to whine about Seymour, and
say "he's the bondholders'
candidate," &c. They can
