;(iovifnNOR. For the" first time
tho people of Vinton county will
have tlio pleusurb of voting for 6
fanner for Governor of our StotoV
I Ion. WILLIAM ALLEN, of Ross
county, one who is known through
out the land. Why tho mere se
lection of this noble man by the
late (State Convention was so full
of meaning and so unequivocal in
its significance, as almost to dis
pense with, the necessity of any
formal platform the candidate
himself being a far better platform
than any that could be formed on
paper.. This was. never more truly
the case than In the expressive
nomination for Governor made by
that convention. Who does not
feel proud over the selection of this
eminent man as a candidate for
the high position? No man in the
State so "conipletely':,tinderstand8
the needs of the farmers and the
working men, as wqll as the inter
ests of all classes.,. Since retiring
from public ,life, almost twenty-five
years ago, he has led the life' of
a cultured farmer arniV'a' student.
Should ho bo elected Governor,
he would exercise his influenoe to
prevent a'l useless legislation, . .and
would exert such a power for the
tion as has never yei been theitoln.
Let the farmers, laborers, me
chanics, merchants and everybody,
cast their votes for William Allen
for Governor of fJhfo, on Tuesday,
October 14th, because all, in Voting
for him, will be paying a Justly de
served compliment to a good and
pure man -a man who has spent
years in the study of the philoso

usual amount, and of paying Con
gressmen a salary of $7,500 per year,
or $020 per month? It is not gen
erally known that, under the late
Sulary Grab Law,' every mem
ber of Congress draws his salary
monthly $G20 each month.
Hon. II. S. Bunday, although he
will not take his seat in Congress
until December next, has been
drawing his salary under the new

Supreme
Convention
Judoes. The State
found It necessary to
select the most able candidates for
judges of the Supreme Court' It
is well known that the present Su
preme Court of Ohio needs re-con
structing, and the shortest way to
perform tho work is to elect H. C.
Whitman and C. H. Scribner, our
candidates for the positions the
former for the long term and the
latter for the short term, They are
the finest lawyers in Ohio,
LlEUTANANT GOVERNOR. IIoil
Barnahus Burns, of Richland coun
ty, is one of ..the purest men of this
State.. He is a mcmbor of the pre
sent Constitutional Convention,
having been elected without oppo
sition; and has frequently been
nominated for Congross. ' Ho serr
ed the country as a general during
the lato war. He Is a man pflegii
latlve experience and 'an excellent
stump speaker. ' '
Let every Democrat and Liberal
Republican in Vinton county go to
work from liis day and henceforth
until tho closing of the polls on the
second Tuesday of October, and la
bor for tho election of that upright
statesman, Hon. William Allen, as
Governor. By honoring this honest
man wltli your votes you will also
honor yourselves,
[From the Chillicothe Post.]
William Allen in Harrison Township,
Ross County.
CENTRAL CROSS-ROADS, Aug. 14.
r The Democracy are rejoicing
over the nomination of our venera
ble and talented statesmen for gov
ernor. All agree he is the man for
the times. Democracy will bo a
unit under tho leadership of Allen.
All know, honor and love him.
Since his nomination, farmers
think they have no need of Gran
ges, and those now who have been
in favor of the Allen County move
ment, think tfcey have a better Al
len movement at home. iWe feel
now as though we have some pros
pect of succe3s. Let every man
perform hiswholo duty and perform
it well, and after the second Tues
day of October there will bo very
few who will own the name of Allen
Couutyite. ,
I hope our County Convention
will make as wise selections to fill
the various county offices, as the
State did in nominating Allen for
Governor, and I think we may look
forward with anticipations of a glo
rious and certain victory. I cannot
say as much as I would like to, in
praise -of v,our distinguished and
venerable Statesman. All I am
ablo say at present is that I earn
estly pray God to help him, and
crown him witn success. Who can
or who dare say anything against
his character? Who will say any
thing against his ability? I should
like to see the man who would at
tempt it. : .Mr. Allen is the man
whom nil should delight to honor
The Radicals never fail to talk
about lessening the taxes iand re
trenchment before on election
Last fall they howled loud about
the reduction of the expenses of the
Government, promising that they
should be lessened if Grant should
be elected. Instead of being" de
creased, the burdens of the people
were increased immediately after
Congress convened. These Radi
cals, now that another election is
pending, say. that the salaries of
Congressmen, which they increased
since the last election, must be re
duced to the old figures; but not
one of them, however, demands the
reduction of Grant's salary. It is
hoped that all honest men in Vin
ton county, will vote against every
man brought out for office at tho
next election. The Radicals all
went up together last fall; let them
all come down together this fall.
The Riggest Steal of All.
It has now been discovered that
n ring formed by the leading direc
tors of the Central Pacific Railroad,
calling themselves tho "Contract
and Finance Company," let con
tracts to themselves for building of
the road nt such orbitant rates, and
then sub-let the work to bona-fide
contractors at such low rates, that
in the operation they swindled the
U. S. Government out of over two
hundred and eleven million dollars
More than ten times as much as the
Credit Mobiliers stole. Of this
amount, vast sums were expended
to secure favorable legislation by
Republican Congresses.
The Legislature appropriated
$05,000 for defraying the expenses
of the Constitutional Convention-
On Friday, August 8, the Conven
tion, nftcr having been in session
about three months and expended
$C2,781 71J of the $65,000, adjourn
ed to re-assemble at Cincinnati, De
cember 2, 1873. Nothing at all has
been accomplished since it has been
in session.
The "Lightcuen Kalkulator" who
represents Jackson county, voted
for the adjournment. That "Kal
kulutor" is a brick he is! -
$443,116, Stolen.
The government loses $443,116
by the defalcation of Paymaster
Hodge, one of Grant's official pets
This thief was sent to prison, but
Grant pardoned him. He is now
one of tho leading men of Washing
ton City. He favors tho Sulnrv
Grabbing, the Land Grabbing, the
Postage Grabbing, etc. The labor
ing men are now helping to pay
this $443,113.
Tnt call for the Democratic
County Convention, as the reader
observed, appeared in the last pa
per. Let tho Democrats of each
township assemble between the
hours of 2 ard 8 on Saturday even
lng, Sept. 6, and choose the best
men in their respective township as
delegates to the County Conven
tion to be held on Monday, Sept. 8
Let there be full delegations from
each township.
Public Works. Our candidate
for member of Board of Public
Works, is Christopher Schunck
Ho is thoroughly posted about ca
nals and public affairs. He is ono
of the intelligent Germans of Mer

friend D. J. Caluh.

at 5 p. m. Here we were compelled
to wait nearly four- hours for
western train. Put in bur time by
inquiring about tho rise and pro

heard of a case in that city! ; One
fellow, however intimated that
there were four deaths per day by
that disease .that's what he had
heard. The approaches to the city
would incline some peoplo to the
opinion that cholerf, if not some
thing worse, rcigtied in Cincinnati
The stench from distilleries, pig
pens, cattle guards, etc., iscnough
to give the' best: regulated stomach
an overdose. ..They distill cholera
there the year round, which deals
distress, poverty and death to many

At 8:40 p. m., we left for Indian
apolis, via. the Indianapolis,
Cincinnati and Lafayette Rail
road. There are some deep
chuck-holes on this road that are
anything but pleasant to bunip-ety-bump
over. It reminded us of
ihe old "coduroy" roads in Pennsyl
vania, in the days of stage coaches.
Arrived at Indianapolis at 2 a. m.,
tired, dusty and sleepy, and felt
like singing,
. "Put me In my littlo bed."
But we didn't do neither,
We
the
sat cross-legged and cross in
depot but narry sleep. As day
light approached we meandered
(we believe that's what they call it
out here) up town, and dropped
iuto the sanctum of the Morning
Journal. But it was empty, and
wo presume the editor's head was"
ditto, and he had gone homo o re
cuperate his energies and strength
for another night s labor. We took
possession of the ofllce, and of
course imagined that we were the
great chief of the Journal estob-
ishment, and watched a hole to' get
out, should an aggrieved party
make a hasty entrance. We peered
out of tho window toward our old
boarding-house, but it had vanish
ed! "In the place where-it once
stood," is now looming up a mam
moth brick block. What a change

olis is truly a live town and " beau
tiful beyond description. Uikhi
every hand is activity, and the
saw, hammer and plane is playing
its busy tune at every turn. Old
wrecks are torn down and new pal
atial buildings spring up in their
stead. This city is showing more
energy and enterprise in the Way
of buildings, parks and other im
provements, than any other city in
the West.
The Industrial Exposition, which
will be opened next month; will be a
grand affair, and well worth a trip
from Eastern Ohio. , Yoh will find

for Champaign, Ills., over the Indi

The Era of Demagogues.
Editor Enquirer: When the
last degree of absurdity is reached,
and the fullness of nonsense is
spent ' in the game, he who is not
willfully' blind, may gather .wis
dom from the attitude of parties,
and cither tremble or smile as - the
view suits his political vision.
That tho former movement is the
forerunner of tho age of dema
gogues, as the Editor of the Cleve
land Herald so frankly asserts, if
quito a; amusing opinion (if it is
worthy of so respectable n name)
and shows his lofty contempt of
class of men on whom he is depend
cut for that he cats.
If he had said that past legisla
tion
ted fattcnened corporations
and bondholders at tho expense of
the producing class, and justified
the farmer in striking for his rights,
he might have had tho quieting re
flection of telling the truth, and be
found on tho winning side. The
farmers' movement is a dispensa
tion infinitely above tho contcmpla-
tiorl of this woods-breed politicians
and prophets, who have but one
eye, and see nothing with that but
the Radical party, and that contin
ued. If the farmer movement was
playing into the hands of such self-
made prophets, as the editor of the
Herald, to rivet and strengthen the
chains which now hold the domin
ant party in power, the Radical
press would lend its praise in the
wildest fits of dolight.
But the ladicnl ox is gored by
the fanners' bull, hence tho era of
demagogues in the prophetic vision
of the Cleveland editor. When
Congressmen get one hundred bush
els of corn per day, and tho son of
toil who produces it gets nothing,
but an imperative invitation to kiss
the hand that smites him, any man
out of bedlam can see the era of
demagogues in the present condi
tion of the country. When our
President gets one hundred and
thirty-seven bushels of wheat per
lay, and the grower barely enough
to pay the cost of producing it,
his margin for profit lies in the
privilege of being insulted by the
Radical press for daring to breathe
a righteous sentiment if in conflict
with the interest of the Republican
party. That relentlsss tyranny
over the minds of men, which is so
signally characteristic of that party,
i3 the offspring of demagogue rule,
Is the natural sequence of a people
disciplined for party use. In 1872
demagogues resolved to re-elect
Gen. Grant or stench the earth
with slime, and they succeeded in
the latter with such consummate
ease and boldness, that the former
was only a logical result.
The country has been dema-
gogued by ihe Radical party till
the how has been stretched to its
utmost tension. To relax and let
the machinery run loose, they can
not and live. To give the lines
another draw is party suicide, and
if they remain as they are, the very
stones would cry out if men should
hold their peace, for the devil has
offered them , all . the kingdoms of
the earth and they have paid him
homage in full. Demagogues in
1872 proved by figures which never
lie (except on the eve of great elec
tions) that one hundred millions of
dollars had been paid on tho public
debt during the fiscal year ending
June 20, 1872, and Congressman
Davis, and Government clerks got
up ft campaign speech proving be
yond dispute that such was the
fact
But the first threc-quait'rs of the
year ending June 30, 1873, when
there was no President to elect,
the figures show only n payment of
nineteen millions and a few dollars
over, against seventy millions paid
tho first three-quarters of the year
ending Juno 30, 1872. It was nee
ury for election purposes to dema
gogue the country in 1C72, but in
1873 they can tell the truth. If the
cm of demagogues is yet to come,
tho sooner Gabriel blows his trum
pet the better.
1 When tho editor of tho Cleveland
JIeraUl asserts thut the farmers
organization Is the greatest hum
bug' invented, ho is presum
ing more .on their Ignorance
than his own good sense.
That they have beeu outrageously
humbugged by )Klitical. tricksters
and cut throats, till furbcurance is
no longer a virtue, is no reason
why the same trick could be repeat
ed, but rather to tho contrary. A
burned child dreads the fire; the
Cleveland editor and his ilk can
never humbng them again. They
may muke mistakes and probably
will, but an Intelligent husbandry
i as capable of organization and
. '' : Mil i .' ;': ,.' v . iV.
watching its own interests as any
other class of men,' tho Herald qd
itor to the contrary, notwithstand
ng. Humbuging has become sec
ond naturo to the Radical party.
They think a certain amount is
necessary to givo politics a tangible
shape. If humbuggery gets iuto
the farmers' camp, it will bo smug
gled thoro by some foul bird from
the Radical flock.
Tho farmers move is not a secret
speculation to get some rascal i nto
office or another ono out, but is
based in tho wants of an agricultu
ral people, who have no fricuds to
servo nor enemies to punish in a po
litical point of view.
Mutual hopes and a common in
terest with sound political instinct
and what humbuggery they have
learned from tho Republican party
will carry them through without
the help of tho Clevclaud editor.
Tho Liberal move in '72, took
tho honest politicians from tho Rad
ios! party. Tho farmers move in
'73 will take the same element or
honest men of tho laboring class,
while the disconsolate balance nitty
gazo at each other for a season,
aud then die of their own hideous
ness,
