Board of Equalization—Hon.
John E. Hanna, Democratic
The first Board of Equalization
that met in Ohio, Tras in 1826. The
Board was then, and up to the time
of the adoption of the new Constitu
tion, made np of members chosen by
the Legislature, one member from
each Congressional or Senatorial
In 1826, the counties of Belmont,
Monroe, Guernsey and Morgan, com
posed a Congressional District, tnd
John Davenport, of Belmont, was
c hosen a member of the Board.
In 1835, Fairfield, Hocking, Per
ry and Morgan counties, composed
a Congressional District, and Geo.
Bruner, of Perry, was chosen a
member of the Board.
In IS4I, in accordance with a now
law making a Senatorial District the
territory entitled to a member, Per
ry, Washington and Morgan Coun
ties composed this District, and Dr.
Samuel A. Barkei, of this place was
chosen a member.
In 1846, Douglass Putnam, of
Washington Cotary, was chosen a
member to represent this District,
composed of the same counties as in
In 1853, the office having been
made elective, both the political par
lies conceded that Morgan County
was entitled to the candidates, the
District being then the same tbat it
is now, composed of Washington
part ot Noble, and Morgan counties,
and Jndge Nathaniel Shepard was
nominated by the V higs, and Joseph
Kelly by the Democrats, and Kelly
In 1859, both parties conceded the
candidates to Wairhinfftou County,
tid the Republicans nominated Seth
Woodford, and the Democrats Har
vey Laflm. Woodford was elected
In addition to the Washington
County men, stated above as having
been member of the Board," we may
add that, in 1826, William Rufus
Putnam, and in 1835,Nahum Ward,
both Washington County men, rep
resented what was the Washington
County District at those periods.
It would now seem that Morgan
County re entitled to the member of
the Board that meets this winter.
Rocognizmg this, the Democratic
Central Com mi tees of tho District,
have put in nomination Hon John
E. Hanna, of this village. Judge
31 anna is well-known as an energet
ic and thoroughly competent man;
who will, if elected, look after the
interests of the whole District. As
the position is rot one of profit, the
people should feel gratified that a
man of Judge Banna's fitness should
consent to be u candictato for the
Governor Hayes—He makes a
Speech at Chesterfield on Friday,
W e see it announced by posters,
that Gov. Rutherford B. Hayes is
to make a speech, on Friday next,
tho 30th instant, at Chesterfield, this
county, in the interest of the Repub
This time last year, the Governor
was perambulating the State with a
speech devoted chiefly to Stale aff
airs, and McConnelsville was one of
his places of delivery. Many of our
c:iizens will remember that speech,
and thai it charged the Democratic
party with profligacy and extrava
gance in the preceding Legislature,
and by implication told the people
if they would elect him and tho tick
et which bis name headed, State
taxes would be reduced. Well, the
people elected him and those on the
ticket with him; and, now, how
stands -the Stale taxes for 1870?
Have they been reduced? Ils the
Governor' pledge been redeemed ?j
Is o ! tax-payers of Morgan, instead
of being reduced, they havo been in
creased! Tho State taxes for 1870
are fifty cents more, on a thousand
dollars, than they were for 18691
Should this meet the eye of the Gov
ernor, lie may attempt to explain ii
in lii? ChesterSeld speech. If ho
does, we'll bet the only hat wo've
ot that he'il attempt to prove that
the Democracy ar to blame for it.
He'll attempt to make tho Democ
racy responsible for it by the same
line of argumert, probably, tbat
Garfield used here last week to
prove that the Democracy are re
sponsible lor the pernicious legisla
tion of Congress, during the past
ten years, when it is woll known
that in that time the Democrats
have not been sufficiently strong in
Uongross to operate as a check on
pernicious legislation, much less to
legislate. Should the Governor at-
Intrrf. In Tiln ftin Vinrdn rf this
increase on the shoulders of the Do-
would be wsll for him
who were elected to ph.ee and posi
tion, and who he!d the reins of Gov
ernment, allowed the Democrats to
thus burden the people with the in
creased taxation. Or, should he
contend that tho increase was one
of th.e results of the legislation of
the last Democratic Legislature, we
ask him to explain why, in the face
of said Democratic legislation, which
he, as Governor of Ohio, was well
acquainted with, be promised a re
duction in the State taxes in case the
Republican ticket was elected.
But, it will be remembered that
the Governor had something to say
about whisky, lfe then esteemed
whisky a good thing; in fact, he
thought one corner of our Govern
mental edifice was sustained by a
pillar constructed of barrels of whis
ky, and if this pillar was torn down,
the whole fabric would bo apt to
tremble and finally fall, crushing
out every vestigb of liberty. We
wonder, cow, if tho Governor will,
in his Chesterfield speech, reiterate
his views on the whisky question ;
if he will tell the people that it is
one of the best means of making the
Johnny Rebs, of the South, and tho
fools and fops, of the North, pay
their proportion toward sustaining
the Federal Government. But,
possibly, the Governor will not say
a word about any of these things;
and, possibly, he will ignore the
question ot Prohibition, and all such
live questions, and confino his
speech entirely to a denunciation of
"Copperheads," "Rebels," "Knights
of tho Golden Circle' &c.
European War News.
News of Sept. 19.
Severe fighting has occurred at Fort
Ivry and other points within ten
miles ot the outer fortifications of
Paris. In the minor engagements dis
patches would lead us to believe the
French have been successful, but in an
engagement in which 30,000 Prussians
and about an equal number of French
were engaged, the former were suc
cessful, bo far at least as to force the
latter to retire. The contest lasted
two hours, and is reported to have
been a very bloody one. Jules Favre
has issued a circular in which he de.
clares tbat the France of to day is not
responsible for the war, but declares
that as a nation, it will defend its soil
to the last extremity. General Trochu
seems to be nervous about the fate of
Paris, but declares his iutention to
fight till the last. All rumors looking
toward peace seem to be false, Bis
marck having declared that he will
not treat upon that subject till he gets
Paris in his power. It is said he has
had an informal conversation with
Malet, one of Lord Lyon's Secretaries,
on the subject, Cut declines to receive
any offer of meditation. He advises
all foreign Ministers to leave Pans, (
while they have an opportunity, as no I
communication will be allowed be-1
tween them and their Governments
after the seige of Talis commences in
earnest. Acting under this advice,
most of the foreign ministers have left
the city. Count Eismarck seems anx
ious as to the course that will be pur
sued by the United States. To-day or
to-morrow will undoubtedly bring
about important resu'ts, either in a i
pitched batt'e outside the wa"s of Par-j
is, or new overtures for peace.
News of Sept. 20.
Oar advices from the seat or war J
Europe this morning are as con-
flicting in their nature as ever.
Fighting has beer, goirg on almost
continuously in the neighborhood of
the outer defenses of Paris, with
varying results. The odds, thus far,
however, seems to be in favor of the
French. No pitched battle has,
however, thus far occurred. Impor
tant movements "are going on in
Russia, ana her army, 60 it is re
ported, is massing on the frontier.
Affaira certainly look decided!' war
like. The defenses of Paris are fce
incr strengthened, and tho French
officers seem to take a more cheerful
view of tho situation. Tho heroic
defenso of Strasburg continued, but
it is not thought possible for the
city to hold out an- great length ol
time. General Ulrich, the com
mandant, has been seriously, and
perhaps, fatally wounded. The in
vestment of Mctz continuis, but Ba-
zaine gallantly refuses to capitulate.
King William reiterates a statement
.previously mide, that he will refuse
all overtures for an armistice. An
immense jncctmg of tho people of
London, who sympathize with the
young French ivcpublic, has been
held at Trafalgar Squu'e. The peo
ple seemed to be friendly to the Ger
man masses, but very little on their
rulers. The demonstration was the
largest ever known iu England.

sities of the last Congress have be
come obnoxious to the people; see
ing that tho voters are disposed to
put a stop to National legislation in
favor of monopolies at the expense
ot the people; and having nothing
to promise the people m the future
but a repetition of their truly ob
noxious course in caso their party
is continued in power under these
circumstances, they have atlemptod
to divert the public mind from what

lican to uo, in case ho is elected, by
puffing and blowing about what thoy
call his "unimpeachable character
. . , ...
j. nut it is acrnanuea oy tne peo
ple almost universally, that tho next
Congress shall be made up of men
of sterling integrity and honesty, is
nndoubtcd ; and, that it is right that
only snch men should bo elected is
conceded by all who have iho inter
ests of tho country at heart; but,
our Republican cotemporaries, in
recognizing theso facts, and making
personal character a main feature
of the campaign, have most certain
ly made a very nnforiunato bluudcr
for their candidate.
To Morgan County people, who
have known W. P. Sprague all bis
life, who have watched and been
well acquainted with his wholo bu
siness careor, and who havo had
every opportunity of knowing of his
reputation for honesty and integrity,
and amongst whom he can only
havo a reputation for anything as
he has lived here all his life, the
fulsome praise he has received for
hoQesty, from the Republican Press
of this District is amusing. Our
business men laugh at it, and won
der what newspaper men wouldn't
publish m order to place their party
canJidate favorably before the peo
ple. The truth is that while Mr.
Sprague has been an energetic and
successful business man, while he is
possessed of fair, probably superior,
business ability, while ho is regard
ed as a sharp, shrewd, calculating
man, temperate in his habits, and
given to none of tho little vices
commonly .indulged in; yet, with
all these merits conceded to him,
he has always been considered a
man whom those doing business
with him would do well to watch,
and has never been notorious for
his honesty. Were we disposed,
we coald cito case after caso, whero
men, of undoubted integrity in this
community, who now are end al
ways have been members of the
same political parties with Mr.
Sprague, have accused him openly
of deeds that savo ruoie of ihe
rascal than of the honest man. But

rather than to cite well known ca
ses which reflect rather injuriously
on his integrity. "His character in
this community where he is known,
is that of a grasping, avaricious
man, determined to malie money,
r.nd not over-scrnpulous as to the
means be employs to do so. Should
he be elected to Congress, of which
there is no probability, his whole
past life, as it is written m the
memories of men with whom ho
has been doing business for the
past twenty years, justifies us in

Republicans, when (peaking ot him

District, have made a great mistake
in attempting to run Sprague on his
reputation for honesty, and he can
hold them responsible for the ex

been content to run Mr. Sprague as

The Political Whine of the
Prominent in recent issues of the
Herald, editorial articles may bo
found, which are intended to strike
at the cause of Prohibition, and
.vhich essay to ridicule those men,
of both the old political parties,
who have determined to support a
third parly, which is pledged to
carrying into execution their prin
ciples. The main argument used
by our coiemporary in these ai ti
tles, is that the Republican parly
will be kicked out of power. Such
miserable whining is well answer
ed by the Peninsular Hrrald, an
Eastern paper, in tho following ar
ticle: "Tho miserable cant of certain
addle-brained partisans, of which
we are just now hearing so much,
about breaking up tho Republican
parly by the organizUion of the
Prohibition party, :s most disgust
ing to all people of good sense.
Who ever Knew a par 13- once in
power to be broken up loo soon?
None, wo will vntiuo to say.
Tho chief difficulty with theso par
ties has ever been that they- have
imposed upon tho people by outliv
ing the periods of their usefulness;
and, like tho greedy ox, havo left
the rich pastures reluctantly. Par
tics are designed simply as the in
struments of public utility, through
which the citizens may execute
their will in tho choice of officors
and in the accomplishment of jsc
ful public measures. Hut it turns
out, that upon tho most important
of these measures tho people can
only come to an agreement after a
protracted debate, and hy a con
centration of power in the form of
party organization. It io a favor

that 'parties grow,' and yet when a
new party begins to grow thcy
comnr.enco to whino lest the 'insig
nificant thing' should interfere with
their boasted greatness. It is well
enough, forsooth, to 'grow,' but :t
is all wrong to orgAiiize.
"And then the remarkablo candor
and consistency which these com
plainers exhibit it very imprcs-sivt !
Notwithstanding this perpetuai
alarm which they aro 6oni.ding
about breaking up old parties and
interfering with other important
issues, the', with each alternate
breath, assure the people that the
rew movement can not possibly
succeed it is too weak to clj good
"Gentlemen, onr advice is that
you cease to publish jourown (oily
or hypocrisy, in thus attempting to
mislead tho people. You can only
destroy tho Prohibition party
movement in one of two ways by
cither disproving the soundness of
its principles, or b' inducing some
other party to adopt them. Whin

tions of failure, and low personal
abuse, will hardly do in place of
