NOT A SECTIONAL PARTY.
Tho Democratic party id not a sectional
party, tho clamor of tho republicans to the
contrary notwithstanding. Neither is it a
Southern party, as tho Republicans attempt
to have it understood,' but it is a party of
the entire country, and as a matter ot iact
has moro voters iu the Northern States
than in tho Southern States. Tho Repub
lican cry of a "Solid South," and the bitter
hatred they evince towards the Southern
people instead of fastening tho stigma of
sectionalism on tho Democracy, recoils on
their own herds, and stamps them as tho
only sectional party in tlio country. They
would havo the people believe that this
is a campaign between tho North repre
sented by the Republican party, and the
south represented by the Democratic party.
How hollow this claim is the following
table of the Democratic vote in 1S7C, which
was compiled by the Indianapolis Sentinel,
will show :

New Ilamshire 38,509
New Jersey 115,902

THE THUTII PRECISELY.
Garfield's nomination means the endorse
ment and approval iu the most positive and
offensive manner poKsible of the presiden
tial fraud of of 187(5-7. He had more to do
with it than any other man, and was the
only man who occupied toward it a double
relation. After thy election Garfield went
to New Orleans by request ot Gen. Grant,
without authority of law, as a partisan.
He went there to assist his party in making
up a case, and after his return to Washing
ton, of all his associates he was the only
man who took his seat upon the electoral
commission. 15y every sentiment of fair
play he should havo been excluded from
the jury bnx. By his own sworn statement
of what he did in New Orleans, Garfield
had charge of the returns from
West Feliciana Parish. In one of the
inner rooms of Packard's custom house he
did his work, examined the affidavits, and
when they wentiot sufficiently full, he pre

tnrii'g tn brim? them within tho rules adopt

so received by Garfield went back to tho re
turning board, und the result was that
West Feliciana with its Democratic major
ity was thrown out. In Washington, Gar
field's voto was that congress could not go
behind tho returns thus made. As agent
for his party ho helped to make returns by
manipulating tho evidence; and as juryman
for the nation ho held such evidence as con
clusive and binding.

.MR. ENGLISH'S MORTGAGES
From the Nation.
One of the principal "campaign stories''
of the week is that Mr. English has, during
the past three or four years, foreclosed a
considerable number of mortgages in Indi
ana to recover payment or small loans.
This discovery was made by the Cincinnati
Commercial, and many of our esteemed Re
publican contemporaries seem to think it a
very valuable one. Some of them have
given up nearly a whole page to the list of
foreclosures. Mr. English seems, like
many other men, to be in the habit of in
vesting considerable sums on mortgage,
which is usually considered a business
transaction, the object of the
martgagc being to enable the
creditor to get his money back in case
the interest is not paid. But the esteemed
Republican contemporaries seem to think
that the mortgage is something which is
drawn up either for fun or to save the
debtor's dignity, and which no creditor fit
to be vice-president would think
of taking seriously. So when
Mr. English treats his mortgage
as real security and enforces it, they de
nounce him as a humbug and hypocrite,
and "as no poor man's friend."' This is a
sorrv business for a paper like the Cincin
nati Commercial to take up, and would be
much better suited to Dennis Kearney's or
organ. When the editor takes a mortgage
we wonder what he does with tt.
Troy Daily Times.
It cougress keeps going on to the end as
it has been L'oing on for two or three days,
its termination will be welcomed by hosts
of people through the country as a bene
diction. Last night, when only 157 mem
bers were present in the house, Mr. Oar
field called up the civil appropriation bill,
and recommended an amendment concern
ing the salaries ot public officers. Ellis
II. Roberts vainiv endeavored to
postpone action. But the merce
nary fellows on the floor, who had doubt
less gone there to steal $5,000 each
from the people of the United States,
mocked him with derision. He therefore
made the pious Credit Mobilier Garfield
wriggle and squirm like a skinned eel
Eighty-one men voted under the convenient
cover of tellers, so that there is no tell-tale
yea and nay list, to pay themselves $5,000
for a term of service that will close next
week. For a man who stands upon trial
for past misdemeanors and begs the merci
ful indulgence of the people, the conduct of
Garfield in the business is strangeiy impiu
dent in a personal sense.
The Republican party does cot tolerate
"free speech even in Massachusetts. Vil
lifir.ntion without stint or decenrv. and os
tmciKm. both nolitit al and social, is the
certain fate of any Republican who dares
to say publicly that he does not approve
every act of the party. The latest victim
is the Newton Republican. It has
served tho Republican party faithfully
for years, but its service is no shield from
the malice of its party associates. It dared
to say (what is an indisputable fact ) that
General Garfielh has been convicted of per
jury, and Is not a fit candidate for honest
men to support, and straightway the Re
publican organs have seized their bullets of
tilth and are pouring them upon its devoted
" Akteii Uselessly Battli.no. With rheu
uiatbm for years, a course of Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters has afforded the desired
relief to many, who, grateful for the relief
obtained, have borne emphatic evidence
to the excellence of this grand medicinal
staple, which eliminates fruin the blood tho
seeds of the agonizing disease, and neutral
izes their further development. The genial
glow it diffuses though the system, and its
invigorating action also tend to counteract
the effects of exoosure in damp or other
wise inclement weather, and render it
peculiarly serviceable to those troubled with
an hereditary tendency to rheumatism, that
trifling causes often aggravate into a seri
ous attack of the malady, which is perhaps
(he most inveterate one against which med
ical skill is exerted. The medicine insures
complete digestion dd1 assimilation,
healthfully stimulates the kidneys and
liver, nnd promotes regular action of thu
bowels, in short, possesses remedial and
preventive qualities constituting it a must
valuable household remedy.
What a history is condensed in tho
names of Garfield, Belknap, Blaiuo, Robe
son, Colfax andOrth! The bribery, per
jury and official corruption of tho Repub
lican party have tho strongest representa
tives in these.

THE EQUITABLE LIFE
l'O BROADWAY NEW YORK
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, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
As a 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.
"The Equitable Life lias paid since its organ
ization to January 1st, 1880, 551,882,730, and
closed its hooks upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim.

states of Massachusetts and New York, the Equitable Life
Assurance Society shows the following strong points:
FIRST The Equitable has a larger ratio of assets to lia

SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable's death rate was less last year than
any other of the leading companies.

interest, on real estate than any other company.
