Speech at Mltldletown, Octobar I.
Attempts to deceive the farmers on tho
subject of Governor Koraker's views on
the subject of taxes have Iveu the prin
cipal feature of tho Democratic cam
paign. His special message on the sub
ject of tax values has been misquoted,
misrepresented and lied nlmut in every
township in the state. In his speech at
Middlctown, Saturday, October 1, Gov
ernor Koraker ctTet lu.illy disjxxed of
these campaign roorbacks. In tho
our-e of his speech at Middletovvu ho
"Mr. Powell seems to put great stress

not know- hovv I can better answer that
charge than bv simply citing the nies-sago
itself, the recommendations it contained,
tho cotempcraneotis Democratic news
paper comments, and what I further said
mi the same subject in my last message.
The message- comineuces by 'minting out
the li.itikl it condition of the state, it
condition to which it had lieeli brought
by Governor Hiudly's administration,
and by calling attention to the fact that
while our expenditure had largely in

every dollar of which add so much
to the tnxe of the farmers. I then
pointed nut the fact that manv different
kinds of fmc'gn corporation are doing
business in Ohio without lieing taxed a
dollar, and that .hundred of niillioiis of
boniN, storks and other securities were
not returned at all for taxation, and that
while thi was true as to personal prop
ertv.itwas also true, as Mr. Powell
ought to know, and as every intelligent
mini in Ohio doc know, that there is no
uniformity whatever, one county with
another, in the valuation of real property,
calling atleiiuou in that connection io
the fact that .Mr. Kiesewetter, ihe Demo
cratic auditor of state, and now- a candi
date for re election, hail collected rvorU
from the various counties showing this
lack of uniformitv and the consequent
inequality of the burdens of taxation and
the hardships in consequence to all who
were taxed at anv thing like a full valua
tion. 1 recommended us a remedy, the
only one I 'viiow of, that laws ! passed
taxing all these foreign corporations and
securing more full ami complete return
nf chattel property, and that the real
property of the state be leraluetl in such
a way as to secure uniformity and
equality I expressed the opinion that if
such legislation could lte hail the result
would lie tiuit many hundreds of million
of dollars would le brought onto the tax
duplicate which do not now pay a dollar
of tax. and that thereby the burden
which are now liorne by the proerty
that is taxed would not only liefqunlireif,
but greatly lessened. Woes Mr Powell
object to this'
"The Cincinnati Knqrrircr, the Cleve
land I'luin-Dealer. the Columbus Times,
the Youngstovv n Vindicator, and every
other Democratic newspaper of tho state,
so fnr as I know, praised and compli
mented the mcs'.ige audits recommenda
tion. No one nought then, Democrat
or Republican, that I, oranvlmdy eNe,
was trying to increase the burdens of tho
fanners of the state, and nobody think
any such thing now Gen. Powell know s
lietter. Col. Taylor knows licttcr, and so
doe every other Informed man.
"All knew then and know now that the
class of property which I was after was
thut which can be put into a tin box and
shoves! to one ide, out of sight of the
assessor on tax listing day, and that I
wanted it brought onto the duplicate, in
order that the fnrm and lots and houses
and cattle and other visible property,
which can not be so hid and covered up,
might lie relieved of the unjust burden
their owners now- have to lear, liecaiiso
they have to pay not only their own
taxes, but also the taxes of those who
unjustly escape. It ought to lie enough
fo show the falsity of the whole charge,
V state the simple fact that all thu
worldly ossesious I have, aside from
siy household ellects, nre, and were at
tho time, three pieces of real estate.
While I would not allow-personal consid
erations to influence me in connection
with any public or oflicinl duty, yet cer
tainly 1 would not be hostile to the dis
charge of a duty to mj self or the class of
pioperty holders to vv hich I lielong. But.
the whole case sought to lie made by our
Democratic friends is negatived by the
statement in my message that the pur
pose of its recommendation was Insecure
un.formity of valuation and equalization
of burdens, and that it was my belief if
this could lie done that the burdens of
all now pav ing taxes would be lightened.
Aud the same is shown, as I have statist
more expressly by the statement con
tained in my last message, that farm
property is unduly hurdencd, because n-se-od
at a time, 1&S0, of much higher
values than we now have, tho fact lieing,
as I said iu mi many words, that much ot
the farm prujieity of the state is now
taxed nt a higher valuation than it could
be sold for.
"It is difficult for me to answer with
patience such demagogical charges and
insinuations. 1 was born on a farm and
brought up on a farm, living ami work
ing there as a firmer' liny until the war
came. I have not. since I enlisted in the
arm, lived on a farm, lint all my fam
ily and reUtivc-s and friends are farmers,
almost without exception. All mv high
est and dearest interests are associated
with the agricultural classes. If there
is any class of people in the state for
whose Interests I have every reason to
have a jealous and watchful care, it is
the farming class And if my compet
itor has ever lived on a farm, if he had
ever associated with that class of people,
or in any manner Imoine acquainted
with them, he would know they have too
much intelligence and too much integrity
of purpose to lie misled by him or any
other man who, having spent all his lift)
iu a city, imagines that they can bo dc
ceived by the acts of a demagogue."

It was with nnv thing but satisfaction
that I found mwlf compelled, a few
weeks ngo, to make a night journey from
Sknnesv ille to Xew ton Centres. The firm
for which I travel was lient on opening up
new "territory" and had sent me out as
n pioneer Skanesvillo had not developed
any considerable desire for our goods, and.
as it alleged "best" hotel offered a most
undesirable coinponiid of bad food and
I worse lieds, I determined to effect my
I escape as soon as possible. To call Sknnes
1 ville a "cross road town" would be gross
flattery, for if there ft Mich a term as a
i "cross ten road ton," then Sknnesv ille is
entitled to that desigiation. It had been
H ililllcult place to get to, but a study o(
railroad guides showed it was even a more
difficult plats., to leave. This waa prob
ably the principal reason of the growth of
the town a fact on whioh the Skanesrill
ites were given to lKwting. Two train
left this inland paradise daily, at the
convenient hours of 11:80 p. m and
1 4 .20 a m To get to Xew ton
Centres I found I should have to
change three tiniesnn the night train, and
four on the early morning one. A I had
two heavy sample trunk. I chose tho

went down to the. deimt, hoping to find

pacity, he had shortly before wrestled
with my trunks, and, when he unhappily
recognized me as tlioir proprietor, he
crushed severely nil my attempts nt fa
miliarity. So I sat and smoked, and
walked and smoked, till the train arrived,
which it naturally did about forty-the
, minutes late A sleeping car was 'an un
known luxury nu that ro'id, I had the
i prosiect ,,f a pleasant "sit up," varied by
the numerous waits and changes in store
for me Fortunately, though the car was
pretty well tilled, 1 found two unoccupied

proceeded to make myself as comfortable
as ossible. and tried to catch a nnp. My

lone unfeeling individual came and sat

as my feet left uncovered. I watched
I him through mv almost closed eyelids, and
did not like bis asiect. Something, I did
i not quite know what, gave Ids counte
' nance a sinister look. As he had moved
toward the seat, I noticed that he limped
j slightly iu his walk There was certainly
n kind of what the Scott h term "unranni-
ness" nlmut him, and after a few minutes
I took my feet from the cnt, pretended
to rouse up, anil mumbled a wonl ot
npology about hav ing taken up so much
room. The stiauuer lieggetl me nof to

of sitting with hi back to the listmiotive.
"I don't mind that a bit." he said; "be
sides it's more dangerous."
"More dangerous''1 I repeated in as
tonishment "Yes; haven't you noticed that In the

"Then nren't Jou afraid of sitting that
way" I skctl
"No, I like it "
I began to fear that I had got into the
company of a lunatic I knew there was
an ostium somewhere in the neighbor
hood. This man's looks, particularly in
the one eye on which the dim light of tho
lamp fell, had that peculiar glitter which
I had lead was characteristic of the mad
man And he never took that eye off me!
I again nearlv closed my eyes and pre
tended to lie trying to sleep, but all the
time I wn keeping a sharp look out lest
he should develop any violent tendencies.
Soon the mad led began to get so rough
that a succession of sharp jerks nearly
threw me off the seat. Pretense nt sleep
was no longer possible, so I sat up, rubbed
my eyes and remarked:
"This is a pretty rough road."
"You can K't it's almut the worst I
Know in the whole country. That's why
I'm working it. But Charley Hicks Is

There was no longer any doubt that the

to see if there was an unoccupied sent to
I which I could conveniently move. There
, was not. I had heard il was always best

I "It seems to me as if yon wouldn't

"Mind it' that' what I'm looking for!

nsked. expecting him to tell me how he
loved to hear the timbers smashing, the

the scene of horror and suffering.
"I live on 'em," he calmly answered,
"but this infernal road seem to have a

Sailors are scarce in this section at pres

attempts on the part of our "shipping
masters" to enlist "greenhorns." Georgi

averse to being carriisi to foreign parts.
Occasionally a "cullud" man takes into
his head that thefo are other places as
good as home, nnd Into him the "shipping;
