ThjE suilarVof President Grant1
, is $133 per day. Somo of, the la
( horing lWen'fcan't even get 33 cents
per day, while others are suffering
. -.and entirely out of employment.
Remember, the Republican party
s .has a inajprityrof tworthirds in the
' House a "majority so powerful that
it can pass any bill it pleases over
: . the veto of .President Grant even
Many Representatives of Con
f gross of both parties appear to show
an anxiety to repeal tue saiarj'
Grab bill of last Congress, they
must liiakd a clear thing of it if
the. expect to people to sustain
them, lney must repeal tlie rres
i ' identBgrab as well as their own.
Wii are pleased to' see that lion
II. S. Bcndy, tho member of Coir
gresa from his district, has been
r placed -on tho Committee on Jlilo-
age and on I ublic Lands. Ho is
.'zefthb jCSiaifrntn . of jtbtj' first named

He has introduced a bill provi

:Afrg Morgan Jtahl: nr Ohio, in 18G:l
The people of Dayton, Ohio, arc
discussing the propriety and neees
sity of building a railroad from that
place to the Southern Oliio coal
fields. They say they must have
cheap fuel, at nil hazards. We
, would say to Dayton that this re
gion is well supplied, with the com
modity they want; and the easiest
and cheapest, and shortest way
, for them to reach it is to lend a
helping hand to the construction of
the Farmers & Miners Railroad
from Circleville, to intersect the
Gallipolis, McArthur & Columbus
Railroad, at Karnes', six .miles
north of McArthur.
Downfall of the Republican Party.
The net result is summed up in
two facts' downfall of the Republi
can Administration party and the
ascendency of the Democratic par
ty. The people everywhere have
set the seal of condemnation npon
the management of government by
the party in power, and have made
the beginning of its end. The Re
publican party cannot recover its
lost ground and prestige. It must,
from the nature of the situation;
grow from bad to worse until it re
ceives a final and finishing blow in
the Congressional election of 1874.
The two Hotels m McArthur,
the McArthur House and the IIul
burt House, have . been furnised
with Registers, without charge to
the proprietors, by "E. C. Smile v
fe Bko., Madison, Iud., Publishers
of Advertising Hotel Registers,"
but twelve business and profession
al men footed the bills, who had
advertisements inserted in the reg
isters aforesaid, at prices ranging
from $ i to figures beneath a dozen
dollars. We paid $ I for an adver
tisement of the papers we publish,
etc., but tho stupid mules cause our
advertisement to say "Thk McAk
thu Enquires is the oflicial organ
of Union county," instead of Vinton
county. . There are a number of
other stupid mistakes in the adver
tisements. Most of the type on
which the Registers were printed
is old-fashioned nud worn out.
When tho McArthur Hotels want
Registers again we shall print them
in this office, and wc are sure that
those who see them will, not be
ashamed of them in daylight. We
wish we had the .ft wo paid for
saying "Bill posting don'o on short
notice in any part of Union county."
TnErtE are silly creatures yet liv
ing who think that because they
ttrko ft paper they "can have adver
tisements inserted "without paying
anything" for thorn. The terms of
subscription and the terms of nd
: vcrtising are separate items as
, much so as tho diffcrenco between
coffee and sugar. Suppose one of
the silly creatures should go to a
store and "buy a pound of coffee,
would the Btore-kocper be under ob
. ligations to let him have ten pounds
of sugar because he bought one
pound of coffee?.. Certainly not
Neither is it necessary for a news
paper publisher to insert an ad
vertisement to the amount of $5,
$10 or $15 for any person because
(. that person "takes tho paper."
A' difficulty occurred at Zaleski,
on Sunday night last, between
John ,Mohlboiiou oil and Gkoiioe
Darst, . residents of that town,
. which resultedin the former boing
severely cut ia th 'face, neck nnd
ehouldars by .tho last named per
Bon, '.'As' both, parties were sevorely
injured the preliminary cxamina

Hereafter Santiago do Cuba will take unenviable
rank with Calcutta, whoso "Black Hole" will forever
furaiah history with one of its darkest pages. The
city in question was formerly the Capital of Cuba.'
It is a maritime city, and in 1853 containe4 a popu
lation of 21,263. It is tiie second city in sizo on the
island, and is situated on the Santiago river, she
miles from its mouth on the south coast. It is well
built, with wide streets and houses chiefly of stone.
The principal buildings are tho Cathedral, several
other" Churches, a college, and numerous convents
and 'schools. , Its port is four miles in length, is well
sheltered,, is 'defended by several ibrts, and is deep
enough for ships of the lin2. It is romantically situ
ated, being hemmed in by mountains, bub tho climate
is said to be very unhealthy.
Tim new Chief 'Justice was an old-lino Democrat.
In the days of Tanuv, he supported the Dukd Scott
view of politics and law. Originally a Now Yorker,
born in 1823, lie followed -Mr. Gkkicley's advice to go
West, and settled in Wisconsin, whora he b.icame a
local Judge. Mr. Ieuce appointed him Chief Jus
tice of Oregon, and Mr. Bucuanan retained him.
Tho Avar came on. Ho was a patriot,-joined tha Re
publicans, got into the United Senate, tlience entered
the Cabinet, and now climbs into the place made
illustrious by Marshall, Taney, and Chase, lie is
a lucky politician.

Not to put too lino a point upon it, it is charged that
Mr. Williams received $10,000 for his ooiaion in f;i-

vor of tho Wisconsin Central Railroad land claim
(which seems incredible), and that iu other matters
relating to that State his conduct lias ivon riso to

In view of tho many diflerent plans fur an "elastic
currency" suggested by tlio President and Secretary
of tho Treasury, and the dillloulty of eoimirehcndinjl

The trouble between tho German and Spanish
Governments, growing out of tho capture of two
German vessels by Spanish ships in the Sooloo

Gorman Government has ordered two war vessels to

Tins 40,000 Democratic majority in Texas, securing
