April 29, 1875.
The Republicans are still hunt
ing for a candidate for Governor.
1 hey can t find any man of orains
with the nerve to "buck" against
"Rise Up William."
Some of the Southern States are a-
bolishing the common law in regard
to inns, and enacting that inn-keep
ers may receive guests or turn them
away at pleasure. It is a movement
against the -Civil Rights bill, and
Old Ben Wade declines to be the
Radical candidate for Governor, for
two good reasons. One is that he
has not voice enough to out-drown
the roar of the lion of Ohio demo
cracy, the other is that the office
must seek the man, and he seems to
think the oilice is not seeking him
' this year. The reasons are satisfac
tory. Take a seat, Benjamin, and
call the next
The republican press found fault
with Governor Allen last fall for be
ing, as they said, a whisky man, and
now they are abusing him as a cm-
sader, because, being called upon,
he made a brief and appropriate ad-
dress to a woman's temperance soci-
ety. These republican editors are
hard to please. "Jim jams" of the
Reaister. thinks Allen nno-ht. t

In view of the Centennial day of
the battle of Bunker Hill, coming on
Thursday, the 27th day of June, we
suggest to the Democracy of the
State, that the Democratic Conven-
tionbe called to assemble oa that
dav. for the dmill nm-nnao nf
nating' a suitable ticket and com
memorating that . event. Let the
Convention assnme national propor
tions, at least so fa? as the south and
north-wast are concerned, and invi
tations be extended by the Demo
cratic State Central Committee to
allihe States to participate on that
patriotic occasion. While it is pro-
. posed to commemorate the centenni
al of the 4th of July at Philadelphia,
in 1783, let the south and great north
west celebrate at Columbus, Ohio,
. the Centennial of the battle of Bunk
er Hill, in connection with the De
mocratic Convention. After the
nomination of Farmer Bill Allen,
lor Governor, he then can appear
before the Centennial meeting and
respond to the call for a Presidential
nomination in 1876, for one term
on;. Ohio, m point of her geogra-
phical position and her resources
and population, is entitled to the
Presidency, and as she now has a
suitable man for the place, in the
person of her present Governor,
against whose name the breath of
suspicion has never been breathed
from any quarter, she presents su-
penor claims for the honor. All
admit Farmer Allen's integrity and
qualifications, and in these days of
corruption and misrule, this is sayin
a great deal for a public servant.

Thirty-five million dollars is the
round little sum that the last Con
gress piled upon the backs of the
people in the shape, of additional
taxes! Times are hard enough with
out that additional load, but the gov
ernment is as "hard up" as any
body, and must have more money.
The extravagance and corruption of
the administration cannot be met
without more money, and as it was
the last chance the Rads had to
gather in the needful amount for the
proper prosecution of the presidential
race, the dear people should make
due allowance, and not growl if they
do have to pay thirty-five million
additional taxes! It's all for the
good of the government Grant.
The complete demoralization of
the self-styled moral Crusade cle
ment, which swept over the Sate a

year ago, has been exniuuea in ine
late spring election. In Cincinnati
they worked and voted for John
Robinson for Mayor, whose whole
course has been that of demoraliza
tion. He is the proprietor of a cir
cus and owns a theatre. In Toledo
they turned out in force, we learn,

Tha Boston Courier places a print

tions for a third term. It says: "A
President who takes gifts, who sits
aloft, thwarting the will of the peo
pie, and dreams of an indefinite ex
tension of his lease of power through
the continuance of anarchy in th
southern half of the Union, should
be ineligible even to ' a second term,
Freedom iteelf is worthless without
order and honest Intelligent National
administration. Grant has never
had a Cabinet capable of administer

He has had an unconquerable aver

ment of the smallest State in Europe
would put ours to blush."

The Republicans mean business
in their preparations for the ensuing
