Judge John L. Green, for twenty

We have n row Bcpttblienn neigh
bors who are determined to sec no
good In the Democratic party, and
to set tldlvn every Democratic per
formance as bad. Whey are Just
now engaged In proclaiming a weak
theory that Hon. Derlnh Wilkjns
was renominated for Congress Jy
fraud. Of course they present no
proof, and not even suggestlwis of
proof. They never do. They slin
ply rise up on their hind legs urn!
yell "fraud!" There was u very
warm contest in the convention
which recently nominated Wllklns
for the third tlnie. Holmes, Co
shocton undLleking counties all had
strong candjdates fo whom they
were devoted, and as Mr. Wllkins
had ' already been elected twice,
they pressed their men with un
common vigor. The contest had
to come to an end some time, and
if It luul closed in favor of Judge
Hunter, of Newark, there would
no doubt have been as many charg
es of fraud as there are now. It is
claimed that the votes which final
ly renominated Wilkins were cap
tured from Licking county, through
tlie machinations of Col. Isaac R.
Hill, a very "slick" politician, who
now occupies the position of Asslat
ant Scrgeant-at-arms of the Nation
al House of Representatives, and
who has the threatening front of
Jove when ho goes for refractory
members with the mace. Isaac
once facetiously observed that he
was for Wllkins in Washington and
Hunter in Newark, and we verily
suspect he was for Wllkins in Co
shocton, where the convention was
held. Ho no doubt influenced a
number of Licking county delegates
to leave Hunter and vote for Wil
kins; but ho influenced them by
his persuasive eloquence, and not
in the mercenary manner remotely
suggested in the Republican prints.
Isaac lias a tongue as wheedling as
that of the duke of Gloucester.
Licking county has no great
ground for complaint. Indeed, our
understanding is tiiat Judge Hun
ter and his friends are not "kick
ing." It is the Republicans who
are throwing their boot heels into
the circumambient air and squeal
ing themselves hoarse about fraud.
We pause to inquire, what busi
ness it is of the Republicans, any
how. Don't they know that not one of
their party would have voted for
any one of the candidates even had
lie been nominated.

J lift how long the government of
tho United States will remain quiet
under the repeated insults to our
flag, wo aro unable to tell, but) there
Is n point at which forbearance
ceases to be a virtue.
England should be meekly solicit
ed to keep violent hands off the
property of the citzens of this common-wealth,
and if she continues
to presist, Canada should at once
bo annexed to the U. S., and an at
tempt made to civilize her people.
The posession of tho vnstteiri
tory known as British America by
tho Government of England is a
standing menace to our Govern
ment and should not bo tolerated.
We are for peace, permanent peace,
if it takes every soldier and gun in
the U. S. to bring it about.
The Salvation Army.
The Galllpolis Journal thus de
livers its opinion of the Salvation
army as run at Galllpolis:
We have been told that the Sal
vation army is about to fold its
tents and steal away. "Laus Deo."
They came hero without the solici
tation and they will leave without
being regretted. They may have
done some good, but we arc sure
they have done much more harm.
Some members of Christian church
es at first encouraged them, hoping
that they might have accomplished
something, but very soon dropped
them in disgust. We believe them
as a rule, to be persons who are too
lazy to earn an honest living, and
who find it easy to impose on per
sons, and "steal the livery of heav
en" to servo themselves and the
devil in. It is a matter of almost
common knowledge hero that their
conduct has been such as to shame
the cause they pretend to advocate,
and should have earned for them
the distinction of having been run
out of town with n coat of tar and
feathei on them.

For many years the custom lias
obtained in the Democratic party
of determining in advance of the
election who among its numbers
shall he permitted to bo a candi
date for tlie sufVerages of the peo
ple at the general election.
Tills custom lias its origin in the
sound Democratic truth that the
majority of those Interested in any
matter should control.
This is not only Democratic but
the true policy of all free govern
ment. Were the Democratic party al-
wavs iroverned by the maxim it
would bo invincible in this county
and we believe would soon become
so in the State and Nation.
But unfortunately there arc those
among us who hold personal prefer
ment at a price greater than the
good of party or State.
Wlillo humanity exists and we
have human naturo and propensi
ties wo will have combinations
and 'cliques whoso only power is,
sometimes to place upon our ticket

great portion of tlie honest voters
of the party, nnd by this menus

There is perhaps no specific for
this evil except external vigilance
on the part of the great muss of tlie
voters of our organization, who lire
among the nou oflico seeking class,
and who vote the ticket because
they believe in tho principles and
policy maintained by their party.
Those In ottlce or about to offer for
oflico, aro as a rule too anxious for
votes to leave any chance untried
that promises to increase their
chances at tlie ballot box.
Then let tho honest truo Demo
crats know and feel that it is their
duty to .attend and vote at every
primary election, and In castinghls
vote lot Jiim bo govorened by his
honest; convictions of right, Let
each ono closely scrutinize t)io
merits of each candidate and bo
