General Logan's ratilying isn't of tho ter
rific kiud. He didn't tear lis clothes or
any thing of the kind. He only sadly
said, "of course we will lave to make the
test of it."
Gexekal Garfield is now at his farm
at Minton, Ohio, engaged in prepariug his
letter of acceptance. Of course, there is
considerable speculation relative to the
probable character of this letter. He will
most protfably outline tho policy which he
desires adopted for the canvass. Those
who are his confidants say that tho follow
ing extract from a speech which he deliv
ered in the bouse on the 10th of December,
1878, indicates pretty clearly what his pol
icy will be :
"I want to say another thing. So far as
I have studied tho current of public
thought and political feeling in this coun
try, no leeling las shown itself more
strongly than the tendency of tho public
mind in the past few months. Tho man
who attempts to get up a political excito
ment in this country on the old sectional
issues will find himself without a party
and without support. The man who wants
to serve his country must put himself in
the line of its leadins thought and that is
the restoration of business, trade, com
merce, industry, sound political economy,
and hard money and honest payment ot all
obligations, and the man who can add any
thing in the direction of the accomplish
ment of any of these purposes is a public
It was a very quiet adjournment. Con
gress has never made so little noise during
the last few weeks of the session. What
has been done could have been accomplish
ed a month ago. Many measures which
ought to have passed, failed. The protec
tionists have succeeded in preventing any
inroads on their beloved tariff, but they
have failed to get the subject of revision
put to sleep in the hands of a commission.
The discussion of the tariff, however, dur
ing the session, will not be without its util
ity. People need" to be informed as to the
swindle which is concealed in a protective
tariff, and much solid information has been
given; and next winter the assault
will be renewed by the low-tariff
men, we hope, with better
success and with moro compact organiza
tion. The ways and means committee
has not acted for the people, but lor the
monopolies. The exclusive privilege sys
tem is confronted by more enemies than
ever before, and agitation tor tariff revi
sion will surely tell in the future. The
Democrats have labored earnestly to
properly modify the election lawl, but a
filibustering minority and a partisan and
hostile executive have proven an obstruc
tion. That law must be greatly modified
at the next session of congress. With a
Democratic president, alter March 4, 1881,
the partisan features of the law will dis
appear. They are unconstitutional, and
they must go. We must wait until next
winter for favorable action on the subject
cf a new government building in this city,
to which we are fully and pre-eminently
entitled. The educational bill is still iu
the background, which is a matter of re
gret, as it is a public measure of the great
est importance. Sonic favorable legisla
tion has been accomplished for the tobacco
and whisky interests. This last session of
congress may be held up as one devoid of
important legislation; but any legislation
which would relieve the country of the
heavy burden of federal taxation would
have been vetoed by the monoftoly-bound
executive in the white house, notwithstand
ing the fact of a large surplus revenue.
This subject will be fully presented in the

WHAT HIS NEIGHBORS SAY OF HIM.
James A.Garfleld must bo a corrupt man.
We estimate him, not by what political ene
mies say of him, Wut by the character
given him by his political friends and
neighbors. No man can have this sort of
enemies at home and be a worthy man.
The Republicans of Garfield's own congres
sional district men who had been his
friends and supporters held a convention
in 1870, in which they declared "that
there is no man to-day officially con
nected with the administration of
our national government against whom are
justly preferred more and graver charges of
corruption than are publicly made and
abundantly sustained against James A.
Garfield, the present representative of this
congressional district and the nominee of
the Republican convention for re-election.
That since he first entered congress to this
day there is scarcely an Instance in which
rings and monopolies have been arrayed
against the interests of the people, that he
has been found active in speech or vote up
on tho side of the latter, but in almost
every case he has been the ready champion
of the rings and monopolies."
A Reform is tiie Stomach.. How to
institute it? that's the question. How to
get rid of this abominable disorder, that
daily torments the sufferer in a hundred
complex ways, the very proteus of mala
dies. Listen, friend dyspeptic, your stom
ach needs invigoration. Hostetter's Stom
ach Bitters is the best tonic of the age.
Begin that atonce.and you will have initiat
ed a process of cure, which, if you give the
medicine the fair trial it deserves, must in
falliably result in your recovery. A table-
spoonful three times a day of an agreeable,
appetizing and pleasant preparation is sure
ly preferable to the futile and unpleasant
remedies so often taken. Renewed relish
for food, increase of stamina, nerve tran
quility,' untroubled rest, these are among
the benefits conferred by this pure, highly
Si'REST and Best. The Journal Battle

THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
12 0 BEOADWAY NEW YOEK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, and its
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new. throughout the United States,
After the policy has been in force for three years.
