THE PLYMOUTH DEMOCRAT.

IMiio-ratH are I'l.tlewivetl.
The democrats who have fondly re
graded the Plymouth democrat as their
party organ were suddenly and com
pletely undeceived when the Democrat
started its position on November 21
Its declaration of principles of that
date was summed up in the terse un
equivocal statement: "Independent in
all things neutral in nothing.'
In the Democrat of last week much
space was devoted to the purpo e of
showing that il never had been a party
organ md matter from its files as far
back as 18" was quoted to prove that
such was the truth. From this it seems
that while for many years subsequent
to l) the democrats of this countv
have been permitted to believe that the
Democrat was to all practical purposes
and intents the parly organ, the paper
has never been fully in harmony with or
devoted to the party. Otherwise there
would have been no obstacle to its being
the party organ and receiving the party
patronage which it conmlains with a
tinge of bitterness that . has received
only in part.
Hut the question with the democratic
party now is, has it or has it not a i.c v.s
paper representative (birring the hair
splitting definitions o;' what constitutes
a party organ) in this city. In view of
all that has been said and done it does
not appear that the Plymouth Demo
crat can nowever be accepted as a reli
able representative of local democracy.
A paper to be so accented must leave
no doubt in the minds of its constitu
ency as to its firmness and persistency
in advocating party principles. It can
not be democratic one week, independ
ent the next and half way between the
next and inspire the confidence neces
sary to gain admission to any party.
When the daily Ixdlpkxdext was
started the Democrat referred to it,
exultingly and with great apparent
pleasure, as a little boy might tease his
school fellow, as the Republican daily.
It is now evident that coming events
did not at that time cast their shadows
before. Mr. McDonald had not cast

i Cliuuu Whatever.
For sometime past Dame Rumor has
whispered into the ears of the general
public that an important change was to
take place on the Pennsylvania Rail
road the first of the coming month,
which would be of considerable benetit
to the patrons of that road. Kspecially
favorable was this nev time card to
be to towns within 130 miles of Chicago.
It b ia now been announced that tvie
only change that will be made is on the
time of Xo. 8, which arrives at Ply
mouth at )io p. in. The change is only
made between Chicago and Crestline
and does n.t effect ourt-ervice here.
It has been the desire cf thousands
we might say, along the line of this road
between Ft. "Wayne and Chicago that a
better service could be secured between
Chicago and Ft. Wayne in the forenoon.
Xo train leaves Chicago between 7:30 a.
m., and 2:i. p. m., that gives a benefit
to the patrons of this road this side of
Valparaiso. This service compells an
enormous number of people who desire
to transact a little business in the city to
lose an entire day, which, if even the
train that stops at Valparaiso contin
ued through to Ft. Wayne, or even to
Plymouth, would not only be of great
benefit to the system, but would create a
larger railroad patronage.
We will venture the assertion there is
not a railroad that does not give its pa
trons an opportunity to leave the city
between b" a. in., and noon, with this one
exception. If the train that leaves Chi
cago at 7:30, was one hour later, it
would be of incalculable value. This is
a subject that is of no little moment
to the people of Plymouth, and it is to
be hoped that in the near future some
change will be made that will give the
patrons of the Pennsyvania system a
later train in the forenoon.
ter was still living." This is no fairy
tale, but an absolute fact. The idea I
wish to convey in the strongest possible
language in this connection is that to
deprive an enlightened man of his
newspaper, whether it be tin most ob
scure weekly in the state or the ablest
metropolitan daily in the land, is to
take away his mental food and he is in
torment until it is restored to him. If
"ignorance is bliss' the man who never
reads mav be as happy as the one who
does, but the latter will find no pleasure
in the former's society, for the reason
that he finds it ditlicult to confine his
ideas within the narrow scope of the
man who never reads a newspaper.
A CliuiH-i for All.
We have noticed scores of times the
tendency of a certain class of people
who always berate a man who has ac
cumulated a large amount of money.
Whether these men gained the extra
amout of cash they possess by actual
manual labor or not.they generally were
shrewd men or they would not have suc
ceeded in accumulating. We, have
heard people in Plymouth speak of ihe
gift of Rockefeller to the university in
Chicago, and yet Rockefeller was once
