The Farmers' Movement.
The Cleveland Herald Is a Re
publican newspaper of the ultra
school. It is without guile in its
own household, and hence is utter
ly mean in its partisanship. It has
caught a suirT of the Farmers'
movement, and as no reform can be
brought about in the interest of the
oppressed agriculturists without
sapping and undermining the foun
dations of the Radical party, this
sentinel on the tower raises a cry,
Says the Jferttld
"We took occasion awhile since to apeak of
farmers" as credulous class of men, easily
humbugged, and very much disposed to bo
carried away by a good talker. In their po
litical sentiments farmers are honest and can
did, and they Infer the same traits exist In
othor people. We talk about packing ward
meetings In cities, and we toll the truth in re-
gam w c ty manipulation or primary meet.

same thing sticking out of the present farmer
movement to control the elections, Mark our
words for it, the era of demagogues will bo
inaugurated when our legislative halls are
controlled by tho men sent there by tho
Grangos of the Patrous of Husbandry,"
This is not at all flattering to the
farming community, and unless we
are greatly mistaken, this insult to
their intelligence will not be lightly
passed over. When the Herald
comes to talk ot candidates it is
equally absurd and malevolent. It
is willing to concede, however, that
