This paper re-umes its old and time
honored name today. It has been the
staunch and fa'thful local organ of the re

of that party was effected; it U the organ
of the party in Springfield ami Clark coun

will maintain its position as such In all
these respects henceforth; and we shall ne
our best efforts to restore republican ma
jorities in the city, county and tlistrict, to
the largest figures ever heretofore known.
We expect to accomplish this result by
promoting harmony, unity and consolida
tion in the republican rank-.; by doing what
we can to put the part) on a broad and
noDular basis, by urging the rank and file
of our party the high privates, the masses
of the organization to come to the front
and take the management of the party Into

of factions to dictate as to how thty

are in favor of a popular form of govern

We have understood, fmin a very trust
worthy souice. that the ltev. Wilton It
IJoone, the able, accomplished and ener

of this cit), has received a flattering call to
b.inie the spiritual guide of a Baptist
church in Augusta, Georgia. Whether the
call has been accepted, we are not able now
to say. But this much we do say: that, in
our judgment, the Second Baptist church,
and, indeed, the colored citizens generally,
will make a grave mistake if they allow
Mr. Boone to leave this community or the
church. We have watched the course of
Mr. Boone with interest Vo man among
his race is more highly re-pocted here, both
by white and colored citizens, and no man
has labored hardei to build up the church.
If our information is correct, there is a debt
of several thousand dollars iiion the beau
tiful edifice which lias been erecti-d uuder
Mr. Boone's administration, and it will cer
tainly prove detrimental to the financial in
terests of the church for jiasior and people
to sever relationship until the Indebtedness
Is entirely removed.

We have already given expression to our t
pleasure at the appointment of our old j
friend. James llo) le, of the Cincinnati
Commercial Utizttit, as police commission
er, by Governor Foraker, and we have paid
no attention to the newspaper talk about t
his not being a citizen, because we believed
the talk to be absurd and hardlj worthy ot
denial. Mr. Uo)le Is not only erj well
luallfied tn all respects for the position i
for which he did not ask or seek but he is,
as almost ever) body knew at the outset a
citiren of the United States and therefore
eligible. We copy, with a good degree of
satisfaction, the following, from the Cum
tncrclal Quzcttt, on Mr. IJojle's citizen
ship: There is no truth whatever in the report
that Police Commissioner Bo)Ie is not a
citizen of the United States. The fact that
he has been for nearl) fout year a member
of the Lincoln club, was one of the first
members of the Young Men's ltlaine club,
and has been twice elected v ice president
and is now a director of the latter popnlar
republican organization, ought to have been

very proud of his American citizenship. It
might be observed that tlieie are not a few
naturalized citizens in this countrv. and
that Mr. Bo)le did not waste much time in
availing himself of the glorious privilege of
enrolling himself among them. Those who

Gladstone sums up. as follows:
In forty years slavery has been abolished.
The rigors of the old criminal code hafe
disapieared. The combination of laws
which prevented the working population
from obtaining the best price for their labor
has been repealed; the abuses of the poor
law have been done away with, the laborer
has a better security for life and limb, and
fuller assurance of the compensation of
survivors In case of death; the scandals of
labor in mines and factories have Iieen re
moved or reduced. The people have good
schools and are under legal obligation to
use the privilege. Postage has been
