That's all.
Or nearly all that radical re
form has increased tho expen
ditures during the past year 1
One million additional for
the expenses of Congress I
One million additional for
collecting the revenue from

One million additional for
miscellaneous expenses !
One million additional for
the department of the Secre
tary of the Interior.
, Eight hundred thousand ad
ditional to the post office de
partment. Etc., &c, &c.
Thousands I tens of thous
amis 1 millions 1 millions upon
top of millions out of the
pockets of the people into the
pockets of the plunderers. So
it goes.
An increase in the expend!
ture.s we should say thievery
and speculating in every de
partment from tho top down,
until it reaches sixteen millions
of dollar?. Add this to the
expenses of the year before
nnd we have four hundred and
sixteen millions, of dollars, as
the cost of a radical adminis
tration for one year.
Is it worth that to yci
workingmcn of tho country ?
Are yon benefitted by radical
rule, aud bond aristocracy, and
standiug armies, and Ku Klnx
hunters, to the amount of four
hundred and sixteen millions
of dollars annually ?
Democratic administrations
cost you less than one hund
red millions per year. '
And Democratic adminis
trations didn't steal your pub
lic lands, exempt the rich from
taxation, or impoverish you
with tiiriffs on every thing you
eat, wore, smelled, looked at or
iliouj-liL of. The bondholder
paid his taxes as well as the
laborer; the rich were required
to aid in bearing the expenses
of the government as well as
the poor; and economy in every
department and under all
circumstances was the guiding
rule.
The hard working man, who
read this statement can use it
as food for retlection. It is
him and his brother toilers who
pay the expenses of the gov
ernment. It is from the sav
ings of the men who "earn
their bread by the sweat of
their brows," that the four
hundred and sixteen millions
of dollar's is taken annually
three hundred and sixteen mil
lions of dollars more than is
necessary to pay all the re
quired expenses of the govern
ment. And after robbing them to
this extreme, radicalism has the
impudence to ask them to en
dorse the ; administration that
is doing it, to vote for candi
dates whose election would be
hailed as a direct endorsement
of tho thieves who aie impov
erishing them, and the rascali
ty that requires them to pay
almost five times as much year
ly to administer the affairs of
the government, as they paid
under democratic rule.
A vote for the radical ticket
will be a vote to sustain the
thievery aiid corruption, nnd
extravagance, and oppression
of the Grant Administration.
The Columbus and Hocking

There it is Again.
In 1S40 the Democratic par
ty was accused by its politica
opponents with an inteution to
reduce the workingman s w
ges down to what wa3 then
represented as the pauper la
bor of Europe. It was asser
ted in every imaginable form
that the Democratic party
would, it snccesstnl, crush out
prosperity and fill the land with
wailing and lamentation, be
cause, it was asserted, it was in
favor of a money system tha
would render the country mon
evless. Now it is claimed thai
the Democracy of Ohio are in
favor ot a money system tha
will make money too plenty
and innate prices nnd enter
prise. It seems difficult for
the Democratic party to satisfy
the Opposition, no matter what
attitude it may assume. The
farmer, the laboring man, the
mechanic, the. merchant and
the man of enterprise, we take
it, could stand a little more
money than they are now in
the habit of getting. Wayne
County Democrat.
IF.
If it were' lit for the Radical
party there would have been
no rebellion.
If there had been no Radi
cal party many noblemen who
now sleep in unknown graves
would be acting their parts in
the drama of life.
If there had, been no Radi
cal party the nation would not
now be groaning under griev
ous taxation and a heavy debt.
If it had not been for the Dis
union Radical' party, the vast
substance of this nation, wasted
in a four years war, would yet
have been a part of tho wealth
of the land.
If it had not been for the
Radical party there would have
been no riot in New York.
IF. MONEY POWER IN
THE OHIO ELECTION.
A dispatch from "Washing
ton to the New York Evening
Post says that at a meeting of
the Ohio Republican Associa
tion, the ' announcement was
made that the State Execative
Committee at Columbus had
determined to send a circular
to each clerk from that State
in the Departments, requesting
a contribution of one per cent,
on their salaries for political
purposes. Collectors for each
of the Departments were ap
pointed,. and curiously enough,
D. C. Cox, of the Interior De
partment, a member of the
Civil bervice Commission, was
appointed to receive the mon
ey in that Department.
There is no doubt but that
the Radicals have raised, and
are now raising a mammoth
corruption fund to carry Ohio
this fall. In addition to this
levy on the salaries of the of
fice-holders at "Washington, a
like contribution has been ex
acted from Republican officials,
federal, State, county and mu
nicipal in Ohio. The levy in
Washington will ' produce from
six to ten thousand dollars,
and in Ohio probably twice or
three times as much. We have
then a fund from these sources
of not less than forty thousand
dollars, exclusive of such con
tributions as may be made by
the candidates for State offices
and Senatorial aspirants.
Sherman, Delano and Noyes,
for instance, have gained great
wealth in the public service,
and will come down liberally.
Take Noyes as an example,
lie has been a citizen of Ohio
not quite twelve years, and
during five of these he has held
the two best paying offices in
Hamilton county, from which
he has netted not less than six
ty thousand dollars. His con
tribution to the Committee is
voriously estimated at from one
to five thousand dollars. We
acknowledge that it is but jus
tice to the Ohio Republicans
that he should contribute hand
somely. for but few Southern
carpet-baggers have realized a
more nagnificent per centage
on their moral ideas than has
this shrewd New Hampshire
Yankee by peddling his in
Ohio.
There is no doubt as to the
use to which the immense cor
rup ion fund under the control
of the Radical State Committee
is to be applied. It will be
thrown into close legislative
districts, and negro votes colo
nized from one country to an
other, in order to cany the
Legislature. We hear this
work of colonizing negroes is
already in progress, and it is
importaut that Democrats in
certain close counties, contigu
ous to counties with a large
negro population, should be on
their guard. The Mercer Stand
ard charges that John Sherman
has deposited a thousand dol
lars in the tewn of Van Wert
to be used in electing a Repre

thia is true. Van -Wert is a
close county, but on a fair vote
will go Democratic. Coloni
zing negroes is the game by
which it is to be carried.
This is only one of a dozen
or more counties where the
same lawless fpolicy will be
attempted. It is to promote
this system of swindling that
tho Radicals have exacted their
immense corruption fund.
The honest and legitimate
expenditures of a campaign
like this, with no 'montttcr
mass meetings" or imported
and feed speakers, are very
light, and the conclusion is
irresistablo that the Radicals
will uso tho money they are
accumulating for colouizing
purposes. It can be disburs
ed in no other way unless it is
distributed among the political
bummers as a gratuity.
To show the facilities the
Radicals possess for raising
large sums of money by black
mailing office holders, we need
only refer to the fact that last
year their Executive Commit
tee was furnished with more
more money than they could
use. Their Committee treas
ury was running over with
greenbacks plundered from
clerks and other Government,
employes. "When the campaign
closed there was over a thous
and dollars unexpended in the
hands of the Committee, and
this was voted as a gratuity to
Mr. R. A. Harrison, its Chair
man, we suppose for his effi
ciency in promoting civil' serv
ice reform by bleeding office
holders. We mention these facts for
the benefit of our friends
throughout the State, that they
may know the corruption they
will have to encounter. We
can not meet it by like expen
ditures, even if so disposed, for
our uommutee nas but little

money tor even the legitimate
expenses of the canvass. We
have no clerks to black-mail,
and no officials corired with
public plunder to draw upon.
There is but one way to meet
the corruptiomsts, and that is,
tor every Democrat to enter
upon the work of the canvass
with his whole heart and soul.
If that is done, Democratic en
tnusiasm anu zeal will Drove

The Coshocton Democrat and
the McArthur Enquirer con
tain editorial articles concern
ing the proposed call of Con
vention to amend the State
Constitution. Neither of these
papers has yet seen any suffi
cient reason tor holding such
convention, and they therefore
decline to favor it until the
advocates of the measure show
that it is needed. This is right.
The expense of a convention
would be more than that of
State Legislature, and there is
no knowing but the Constitu
tion would be damaged instead
of improved by the changes.
If there is a general demand in
the public mind for any partic
ular amendment, let it be nam
ed ; and when the Legislature
meets it cau submit it to a vote
of the people. This is a cheap
er and more direct way of ma
king a change in an instrument,
which, as a whole, is not the
subject of complainf. New

An exchange very appro
priately remarks that every
citizen of a town onght to be
interested in building it up.
wery capitalist of a town
ought to use his means in stim
ulating some wealth producing:
ndustry. The man who invests
lis money in an establishment
that makes plows, threshers,
reapers, mowers, woolen good,
etc., is a local public benefac
tor. There is no mistake about
dm. All such enterprises
naturally stimulate the growth
and' add to the wealth of the
communities in which they are
established. Every dollar kept
at home has its advantages,
more or less, for cverv citizen.
The most wealthy and prosper
ous eitios and towns in the
world are those that work up
on the co operative plan that
aim to build up their own mer
chants, manufactures, mechan

li verted from home is so much
taken from home consumers,
and lessens, to a greater or less
extent, the ability of home
men to meet their liabilities. -
