The Democratic Executive Commit

GRAND DEMOCRATIC RALLY I!
to be held in McConnelsville, on
Saturday, the Sth of October.

The Garfield Meeting.
On Wednesday, Gen. J. A. Gar
field spoke in the interests of the
Republicans, at the grove eafet ol
town. Tho meeting was pronounc
ed by Republicans, Prohibitionist
and Democrats, to bo a little the
smallest affair, in the fcl apo of a
political meeting, ever held in ilc
fonnelsville, although the day w its
beautiful, and every effort bad
been put forth by D. C. Pmkciton.
and underiings, to raise a large and
enthusiastic crowd". Those present
at the meeting w ere counted, and
were found to approximate fi
hundred persons, men women and
children. The voters present
would not number over one hund
red Mid fifty, and about one-third
of these wero Democrats, and one
fourth Prohibition isis, who were
curious to learn what a "great gun"'
of the Republican party could find
to say in favor of his party.
Garfield's speech was well cot
up for the object desired to de
reive those who do not keep them
selves posted on Kationai affairs.
The sum and substance of it was
to the effect Ibat the Democratic
party i responsible for all the bad
legislation ot the past ten years,
uud under which the pcoplo rrc
row suffering. The absurdity of
bis effort in tbat way, will Etrike
the mind of i ny man, who will re
flect on the fact that the Republi
can parly has luld the reins of
Governr.-ent entirely in iU potses
moii during thil time; has bad a
three-fourths majority ia both
Houses of Congress almost the
whole of the time. How, under
puch circumstances, we atk anv
reasoning man, can the Democratic
party be responsible for the bad
legislation of th j past ten years?
lir. Garfield did Dot hesitate to
falsify in his remarks. We sup
pose he thought he was talking to
t lot of Hottentots, who w uld not
know whether he bpoke the truth
or not. We will give a cample of
bis bar-faced falsehoods: He said
that the "Democracy of Ohio 1:1
0 and '61, claimed the right to
legiblate, by Congressional enact
ment, slavery intc the Territories."
lr. Garfield knew wben be uttered
this assertion, that he was telling
what was not true. He knew that
the Democracy ot Ohio, aud of the
whole North, at tho time slated,
keld to tbe "Squatter Sovereignty"
doctrine of Stephen A. Douglass.
The lireckenridge Democrats, of
the South, and the Abolitionists, ot
the North, were the parties thai
claimed for Congress the right to
legnd&to slavery in and out of the
Territorfes. The Douglass Demoe
- racy, of the North, said that Con
gress bad nothing to do with the
matter, but that the people of the
Territories were the ones to decide
whether or no slavery should be
The meeting was considered, ev
en by D. C. Pinkerton, a failure.
The McCounelsviilo Herald has
made a great discover, and devotes
over a columu of its last week's is
rue to apprise its readers of it. It
is, to stnte it briefly, that "the Con
icrvative desires that the Republican
County and Congressional tickets
bhall be defeated I"
Is it not a little astonishing thut
tho Conservative should entertain
tuch desires? and ia not the Herald
entitled io great praise for Us keen
penetration, evidenced in discover
ing our wishes? Verily, there are
mighty minde now wielding the
pencil at tbo Herald office I
But, bad tho Herald men scanned
our paper more closely, the' might
have carried their discoveries fur
ther. They might have carried them
far enough to have justified them in
eaying that the Conservative desires

publican party, not only in Morgan
County and the 15th District, but
in the Sute and in the United
Tuk Herald post Win. Foulke, the
Republican candidate for' Prosecu
ting Altornej', :i a "rising 3-0111111'
lawyer." We suimut that tin is
hum buggery of the motl tliallow
kind. While Mr. Foulke i a quiet,
well-behaved, and Kindly moral
young man, yet lie has never don.
HJglit in his profession to entitle
him to such praite. He ban nevei
in any instance demonstrated to th
profession or the public, ill it he is
possessed ot even the most ordinary
ability in his profession, &c. Yir
Conservative, Sept '2d.
Supposo we retaliate 1 13 savin::
that Mr. Chew has never demon
strated more than ordinary ability
in his profession, or more than the
most common talent in unylhirg
outside of his profession. And sup
pose we should draw our conclu
sions ot his ability to fill crcoilutilv
the position lor which he is a c:ndi
date, from the fad that, he failed to
sustain llic prosecution in the casi
of the State vs. Matthews; or thai
ho did not show a very thorough
acquaintance with Medial Juris
prudence in the case of Letruvt vs.
Dr. Abbott. McConndsvilit Herald,
ll j ou should attempt to retaliate
in the wav vou state, Mr. Heraht.
3-011 would not only falsity, but you
would mane a complete ass of 3-our-self.
Mr. Chew 175 demonstrated
more than ordinary ability in his
profession. He opened an office 111
this town nboJt eighteen month
ago; and. from the start, has been
entrusted with more business, than
any attorney who ha6 started into
business hero wiilnn tho past ten
ears has' had in the first eighteen
of his practice. More than this, he
has almost universal'- been succei-s-ful
in the business entrusted to his
management, notwithstanding the
fact that he has not had the advant
age ol having a partner skilled 03
experience, as most young attorneys
Tliere never was such a case in
existence as the case of tlio -Stale
vs. Mathews," referred to. The case
the Herald now in cans', was that of
tho Incorporated Village ot MeCon
nelsviile vs. Mathews. Ecerj one
about town knows that Mr. Cbew
was not at fault because of the fail
ure of that i-asc, and for the satis
faction of the Herald man, we wiil
state that wo heard a prominent
Republican lander ol this county
sa3' that Mr. Cuew conducted thai
case as well us any attorney could
have conducted it.
The last insinuation of the Her
ald's, that Mr. Crew "did not show
a very thorough acquaintance with
Medical Jurisprudence in the case
of Lcgget vs. Dr. Abbot t," is very
easily ui:swered by elating that
there is not one practicing altorue'
in a hundred that has a ver thor
ough acquaintance with Medical Ju
One of the strongest evidences of
Mr. Follke's incapacity icr the
position, 10 that he has no profes
sional record, but that of sitting
around the court room, to puncture
Ail that wo uesire, or ihatany
friend of Mr. Crew desires, relative
to this matter, is that the two can
didates be presented to the voters
fairly anvi quarely. Had the Her
ald not given Mr. Foulke any un
deserved praise, we should not have
felt called upon to speak of his 111
New England—How It Fattens
Upon the Union.
There is one section of this coun
try in whose favor all tho U-gisliit:ni
ot Con trrcss seems to run, especial!
undr the Republican regime. It Ts

protecting being done by" the other
States of the Confederacy paj'ing
double prices for almost ever-lliing
which is made within its borders,
and which, but for its tariff, could
bo puichased that much- cheaper

manufacturers of New England have
grown from their exorbitant profits,

people, has 77,000,000 cf real and
personal propcit- more than this
great State. Boston whh ore quar
ter of the population ot ti e cil- ol

wealth. A largo poi lion of the
Government bonds are owned in
New England. Few, com py naive

we are called upon to paj- for ihem
Tho interest finds i n wn in gteal

its people, whilu it depletes and ex

the ncn-rcsidenr proprietors of land
ed estates in Ireland, who derive
large revenues from them, which
lacy spend 111 England or 011 the
Continent. If the bonds were held
in the West th 03 would probabl' be
taxed. I3ut New England is uc-iis
tomed to special privileges, and she
has iroeured their exempt ioi. from

called upon to make tip the defi

which they consume. Tne naviga
tion laws requiring all vessels en

Editor Conservative. Looking over the

read with much surprise the following i

paragraph continues, "lie is not a bunk

a,ud we know, that M. Sprague is a
stock-holdt-r in the First National Bank
of Mct'onnelsville, to the amount of

considerable influence. The. Herald
proceeds, "l!J. is not President of a

Mr. Sprague was President of the First
National Bank of 'el'onncls ille, at its
organization, and so continued up to
the time when the stockholders put
him out for sufficient reasons not neces

tice of defrauding others by imposition;
the man of wealth who will take such
advantage of Lis unfortunate neighbor
as to charge him 17i per cent, for the
use of money without hazard to him

temporary inconvenience; the man
who will 'io o far beyond tle appoint'
