The News of last night parades, with
some pride, tin extract from a speech of that
odious champion of republicanism, Henry
Ward Beecher. It is this individual who,
in 1877, said: "Is not $1 a day enough to
buy bread? Water costs nothing; the
workingman i:ki not livo by bread alone,
it is true, but the workinf mun who can not
live on bread and water is not fit to live.
When a man has been educated from the
power of self-denial, he is falsely educated."
Surely be is a model of republicanism one
after Garfield's own heurt.
-To are informed by several of those j
who were present in tho court room on Sat
urday last, when Judge Baker gave his de
cision m regard to the overcharges which
Mr. John Reeve made for issuing naturali
zntion papers, that the face of Mr. Reeve
was a perfect index of guilt. The blood
rushed to his face as the Judge spoke, and
he huu'' his kead in shame before the
crowd. And well he rui'dit, for a man
who would attempt to "maintain the union
wf these states'' by knowingly overcharging
poor men simply because they are derm
crats, is unfit to occupy the position of cir
cuit clerk, or any other position withiu the
gift of the people. Let this be remembered
by the voters on Tuesday after next.
Mr. Damron, of Johnson county, who
was nominated on the Republican ticket
by a packed convention, to make the race
against the people's candidate for the same
office, a few days ago pawned one of the
mail bags of the postoffice department in a
saloon at Sandusky for the drinks. Tho
bag which is government property had
been furnished him lor his personal conven
ience because he was a republican office
seeker, and still remains at the saloon
aforesaid. A prominent republican who
does not believe that the law should be
violated in order that Mr. Damron might
be accommodated, yesterday asked us to
suggest to the republican leaders of this
city the propriety of appointing a com
mittee whose duty it shall be to canvass
the city with subscription papers for the
purpose of raising sufficient money to re
deem the bag. This is a bright idea.
The bag should not be permitted to re
main in "soak" forever especially since it
contains many articles of rare value,
We have until now, lor various causes,
been unable to give a very full report of
the Catholic fair, held at the Reform hall,
on the evenings of the 19th, 20th and 21st
inst., and hence a few facts in regard to it
will not be out of place this morning.
The refreshment table was presided over by
Miss Nellie O'Callahan, Miss Mary Ivers,
Miss Mary Dwyer, Mrs. P. Greaney and
Mrs. P. Walder. This table realized quite
handsomely, the ladies having not less than
sixty-five dollars to show for their efforts.
The ladies who presided over the supper
table were Mrs. McCarthy, Mrs. P.
O'Loughlin, Mr3. Powers, Mrs. T. L?ahigh,
Mrs. Malony, Mrs. Glynn and Mrs. Me
N union. Those, whose presided over the
fancy tables were Miss B. O'Loughlin and
the Misses Ella aud Emma Leahigh. The
source of considerable amusement was the
postoffice, conducted by Miss Annie Morris,
.Miss Nellie O'Callahan aud Miss B.
O'Loughlin. We may state in this connec
tion that each of the young men who ad
vertised for a beau in Tun Bulle
tin a few days ago were the reci
pients ot proposals. Tho raca for the cane
between Messrs. Ncllis and Hodges result
ed in Mr. Hodges coming out far ahead, as
it was generally expected he would. For
the necklace, Miss B. E. O'Louglin received
104 votes; MisB A. Daly, 145 votes; Miss L.
Kelley, 50 votes; Miss M. Oalvin, 2 votes,
anil Miss K. Kennedy, 3 votes. The

Wo call upon tho News to defend, if
possible, tho outrageous conduct of Mr.
John Reeve in knowingly overcharging
democratic foreigners for naturalization pa
pers, in order to irighten them off. The
circuit court, Judge linker presiding, and
in session on Saturday last, has decided
that Mr. Reeve is guilty of this contcmpti

come the News, in order to bo consistent
with its past course, to defend all wilful
violators of law, wo now call upon it to
whitewash Mr. Reeve before the eyes of tho
public as best it can. Ho stumls sorely in
need of whitewashing. Ho violated
the law deliberately and knowing
ly, after It had been read to him
and he had been remonstrated
with. He did not only overcharge one or
two men, but we can furnish tho reader
with the names of not less than fifteen
democrats who have thus been fleeced of
their money and who intend to bring suit

a fixed date. Ho even went so far as to
tell Mr. Juhr. Darmody that it would cost
him seven dollars and a haif to secure the
desired papers and thereby was about to
frighten hitn off when Mr. Richard
happened to be pass-
ing through the. court bouse, heard of
tho affair and enquired of Mr. Reeve why
he asked such an enormous and unlawful
price for issuing the papers. Mr. Reeve
replied that he was only joking with Mr.
Darmody, and that he did not. mean what
he said. He knew that he had no right to
joke about a business affair of such great
iuipoitance. and has shown to the public
by the actual charges since made that bo
was not joking. He was conscious ot the
fact that by bis conduct ho was creating the
impression all over town that it would cost
a foreigner an enormous sum
to Ix-como naturalized. But this was
exactly what he wanted, since a man ot
limited means would shrink from paying
such a sum for the privilege of voting.
The record of the court bears us out in
what we say, aud we again ak the News
to attempt to deceive the people by deny
ing our statements. It should not be silent
on a matter of such great importance.

but that we should, with smiling

never occurred to us, and for a moment we
felt like quoting from one of America's
Jistinguished poets something like
The roods red,
The violi't'a blue,
If I'm a liar,
but no, we didn't quote it then and refrain
from doing so now. We only assumed a sen
atorial gravity and begged for an explana
tion, which was very frankly given. We
were informed we had btated in yesterday's
issue that the rotten eggs thai werts thrown
on Tuesday night at the Republican pro
cession were thrown by colored boys. Tins
was a lie. We had also stated that there
were only some seventy -odd white meu in
the procession on the same night, and this,
too, was a lie. We were stunned, and,
for a moment, looked up and down
tho street for asssistance. However,
seeing no one approaching, stammered out
that wo were not in the .city on the night
of tho procession, but had obtained our in
formation from a thoroughly reliable
source. Our reliable intoritiarit, rnen, was
a conscienceless pervarieator, was the re
ply. We admitcd that this was possible but
not probable, but before more could bo

approaching. Tho poor fellows boro evi

faces were haggard and their eyes blood
shot, while a smell of coal oil pervaded tho
atmosphere. It was noticed that the back
harof most of them bail been burned off
by the torches of companions, while
their ears were swollen and
blistered from tho same cause. They
wore accompanied by an employe of tho
custom house, who was shooting one of
his double back action opinions at them.
As they came within hearing distance, ono
of tho colored men, who looked more worn
out than the balance, said that he ami his
friends had, for months, spent the nights in
carrying torches, crying for Garfield, listen

blackguard, Joe Roberts, had been let

he got started, run like a thirty-day, no

Sir The splendid achievements of thf
12th of October show what republicans can
do when their blood is up.
This committee, has yet much to do to
meet the energy of democratic despera
tion, ami make our coining victory com
plete. To make assurance doubly sure, its
hands should be strengthened.
It, therefore, appeals to you to promptly
contribute to its funds an additional one
per cent, of your salary.
It makes this appeal to your patriotism
to the patriotism of a republican who de
sires not alone tho election of Garfield, but
also that of a working majority in both
houses of congress in the full expectation
of a hearty and prompt response.
You have hitherto sustained it nobly,
and assurances crowd upon- it that you are
not weary of well-doing.
