The Butler Comity Democrat has
swallowed the Guidon, anil MeElwee
"steps down aud out," and gives the
"old oninn a chance."
Is oar neighbor of the Ealoii Rjj
ister ia favor of the Republican Con
vection, which meets at Columbus
on the 20th of June, passing a reso
lution against the third-term princi
ple or not?
Tt'lien a Radical gets an office, bow
he hates to give up! How he loves
his country, and how he (ears the
Pope! How wonderfully interested
he is in anything that will perpetu
ate his succession?
lodges cf the "Knights of Honor
tire beins organized throiiirlioiit the
country. It is a mixture of Know
NothingLsm, Centralization, Grant's
howlers, and means his election fo;
a third term.
This is not the season for South
ern outrages. After a little, when
the elections are coming on the cry
of Grant's bread and butter brigade
will be heard all over the country
Don't believe them then.
The Republican State Convention
meets on the 2d of Juno, but have no
candidate vet, and are hanging on the
"ragged edge" of despair to know
whether to resolve against the third
term or not. The "bread and but
ter brigade oppose saying anything
about it, and thus by sileee expect to
deceive the poople into support of
the Grant dj nasty.
In the list cf Republican candi
dates for Governor of Ohio, every
county-iu. the State is represented
except Preble. We would therefore
suggest the name of our old friend
and fellow-citizen, Natty Benjamin,
of West Alexandria. He is a little
old, Liit is the clear grit and favors
the third tem principle and might
possibly cai ry the county, as he
once walked several hundred miles
to attend a "Vhir convention, before
the davs of rail roads in the west
The entire reduction in the State
tax by the lata Democratic Legisla
ture for the present year 13 $385,
221,05, end of this the reduction in
Preble county is $0,942,49!
For the two years the reduction in
State taxes is $1,100,000! . We are
not telling this to subserve party in
terest, or to hold on to an office or
in the hope of getting one, but be
cause it is a fact which the records
prove, and no amount of lieing by
Grant's third term advocates can
successfully contradict it. They
may blow, bluster and keep up a
devil of a "racket," but the people
of this county will appreciate this
economical showing by comparing it
with the squanderings of the last
Republican Assembly, and then by
giving a majority next fall for Gov.
Allen aud further reform.
While at Columbus two weeks ago
attending the Central Committee
meeting, among the names we heard
mentioned in connection with the
nomination for Judge of the Supreme
Court, was that of Jefferson Palm,
Esq., of Warren, Trumbull county.
' We know him aud can say that he
is an unobtrusive, but courteous and
dignified gentleman of the old school,
with a fine presence and agreeable
manners. lie has the reputation .of
being an excellent scholar, with solid
lesral attainments, sound sense, good
health and laborious professional
habit3. no is a conservative but
unwavering democrat of the old Jcft"
crsoniau stamp. No county, in pro
portion to population, did more for
the cause last fall than old Trumbull,
and if the condidate for the office
namad, is conceded to that section of
the State, let the Convention "nomi
nate Mr. Palm.
Not only iu Ohio, but in the whole
country, the remnant of the Repub
lican party and howlers of Grant's
thir.d tenn seems disposed to make
a fierce and unholy warfare against
the Catholic Church. Know-Xoth-ingisin
is being revived and national
issues are to bs ignored for the mi
nor question of -what policy a-man
shall -jursu3 in serving his Lord
and Master. In a late number of
Harper's Weellj wo find the follow
ing insulting paragraph :
"Scarcely a Democrat to-day would
be in oliice in any Free State except
for the solid and unshaken Catholic
vote. Even in Connecticut at its re
cent election it was a mass of igno
rant and debased Irish Catholic vo
ters in the worst wards of Hartford
and New Haven that drove the Re
publicans from power, and placed in
oflice the friends cf the Southern
oligarcy and the servants of Rome.
Democracy r: i-oLniizes no church
for its rites en- f.jrms. It recognizes
a man's riy lit to vote for whom he
pleases. It prut-i-tri him in hi
rights and it weic.-iaes any honest
man iu working with and for the
principles of Democracy and the
Democratic party. It is not bigoted
but liberal. It is not oppressive, but
forbearing. It works lor the people
and is the party of the people.
SUPREME JUDGESHIP. KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE.
Another astounding fraud of
Grant's administration has just come
light among the office-holders acd
whisky rings, which has implicated
hroughout the country a number of
third-terra advocates and howlers a-
jainst Democratic reform. Reve
nues derived from the distillation of
liquors, upon a large scale have been
plundered from one end of the nation
to another, and the spoils divided be
tween the ollice-holders and distill-
As one fraud comes to light un
der the Grant dynasty, another fol
lows in quick succession, not upon a
thousand dollar slice, but upon a
scale that involves millions. Plun
der among the office-holders under
the present administration and its
howlers for perpetuation, seems to be
the order of the day, from the salary-
grab .President down to his lowest
appointees. So common indeed, has
stealing become, that honesty in the
discharge of official duty is a rare
exception. As soon as a man is ap
pointed to an office under Grant's
administration, he considers himself
licensed to become a thief and plun
der all he c.an, in whatever official
position he may be placed. All these
dishonest scamps give straw bail for
the faithful performance of their of
ficial duties, but what of that, for
stealing in high quarters has become
so geueral under the present party
iu power that it is considered iuvid
ious on the part of any Republican
to complain, and the result is none
of the scoundrels are prosecuted, as
all arc- more or less jmplaeated.
These thieves havfi plundered the
peoplo and nearly destroyed the He
public, and yet seem not to be'satis-
fied. .Here is the secret of the third-
term, and the bowlings of the army
of office-holders for Grant to become
his own successor, that they may be
continued iu their official positions,
and go on.suckingthe very life blood
from the laboring classes and toiling
millions of our country. While
Grant's "bread and butter brigade,"
from the highest down to the very
lowest, are sent straggling through
the country to deny the third-term
principle, the $50,000 salary -grabber
is secretly and quietly laying his
plans for the perpetuation of himself
and his horde of plunderers that are
now surrounding him. If snch are
not the facts, why is it that with all
the pleading and importunities of
many of Grant's warmest party sup
porters, they have failed to get even
an intimation that he was not aspir
ing for another four years lease of
plunder? Do these little organ grind
ers, tuned to the music of Grant's
thieving dynasty who are denying it,
know more than Blaine, Butler, Bab
cock, and the brains of the Republi
can party? It is absurd and prepos
terous. In contemplating this wicked
scheme, we hope the people, irrespecr
tive of party antecedents, will rise up
in the majesty of their strength and
hurl this army of scoundrels and
thieves from power and place, for in
God's- name they have disgraced the
nation Ions enough. The welfare of
the country imperiously demands a
change of rulers, and it can only be
accomplished through the ballot-box
or by the bayonet, and surely we
have had enough of the latter.
Bro. Morris, who lately edited the
Eaton Register, but is now engineer.
ing a good prohibition paper in the
city of Piquii, has evidently sonred
on the Republican party, and is go
ing for its rotten and sinking ship
with considerable vim. If he had
charge of the Register now, our
occupation would be gone! The
Democrat an 1 Register would be
together, fighting the corruptions
aud wickedness of the Republican
party ! Wouldn't that look strange?
They were that way once, but it only
lasted one week when the honest c-d
itor was throttled by the Ring-mas
ters, aud ejected from his position
Last week we gave a blast from the
Helmet, and here is another of the
same sort :
"There is reason enough then, for
dissatisfaction on the part of the peo
pie. But what will the Republicans
offer us? Have they any better
record? Will they do to trust? Can
we say of them they are pure,
above reproach and rascality? The
question needs not to be assert.
Look at their swindles. Count over
if you can, their Mobiliers, Grabs,
Subsidies, Collectorships, Kings, etc.
Are they not appalling? Can this
party come before the country with
any lace, ana say dispossess me
Democrats and give us place, because
of their sterling integrity?
No, sir, Mr. Morris, thej' can't.
The men that are asking the people
to dispossess the Democrats to place
in power such a set of plunderers,
have cheeks harder than an army
mule or a Grant office-holder. The
honest masses, however,are not going
to be deceived by the howls about
the Poi:c and such nonsense, into
the support of a party so rotten with
plunder and corruption, lliev are
satisfied matters can be no worse and
are determined to try a change.
.The signs of the times indicate
that the Republicans will adopt the
leading ideas of the old Kuow Noth
ing party of 1831. The Cincinna
ti Gazette clearly points that way.
and the "bread aud butter brigade"
and little hand-organd are falling
Why was this just and tquitable
mode of deriving a revenue abandon
ed? The people ask and it is for
the advocates of the continuance o!
Republican rule to ' respond. The
answer is palpable and plain, which
we proceed to lay before our readers.
In the first place, there is no policy
more just and reasonable than that
yearly incomes of $1500,00 and up
wards, over and above expenses,
should pay five per cent revenue, to
assist the government in paying the
interest on the public debt. A law
of this kind was once in force, but a
Republican Congress repealed it, not
at the instance of laboring men, but
by the urgent interference of the
bond holders, banke.s and other per
sons dealing in money. These men
were directly interested in the repeal,
and placing the burden upon labor.
They held their bonds, free of taxa
tion, but an income tax touched
their receipts and was therefore ob
jectionable to them. Thus A. with
$50,000 in bonds was placed in the
annual receipt of about $4,000, which
by the repeal of an income tax, was
exempt from paying the government
say, $2,000. This raitio, run among
the bond holders, bankers, brokers
and other moneyed men, would yield
millions uion millions of revenue,
and thereby greatly relieve labor
from the principal burden of taxa
tion, as the case now stands.
Here is the secret why the income
taxes were repealed. These men
clamored for' its repeal to subserve
their own interest, which they ac
complished by buying members of
Congress. They besieged the repre
sentatives of the people, and by their
incomes converted Congress into the
measure. Many, -representatives
were bought down right and the Ex
ecutive rendered a pliant and willing
tool in their hands, by subsidies and
gifts. In this way this wholesome
and just policy of deriving a revenue
has been abandoned. The Republi
can party is justly chargeable with
this class legislation, and when prop
erly understood by the people, it
does seem to us that it is enough to
consign any party or set of men in
authority, to political infanry.
Therefore, let us have a new deal
at the ballot box, and place in power
the Democratic party, that stands
pledged to rectify this and many
other grievance's which have been
dominant in high places since the
close of the war. Let us have in
come taxes reinstated, .plunder and
frauds exposed, and to these ends
the Democracy stands pledged, arfd
the only argument used to the con
trary, is that this old noble party
has not a good war record during the
rebellion. This, coming as it does,
from Republican oflice holders, is
becoming too stale and thin to influ
ence sensible voters any longer.
They admit that they have plunder
ed and stole the revenues derived
from the people, but say that the
democrats will do no better when
they come into power. This infer
ence is mere assertion without the
least foundation of truth, and is only
used by designing and interested
politicians, to continue themselves
in power, and still further eat out
the substance of the people. Then
let every liberal and independent
elector rally to the polls, and peacea
bly drive these plunderers and cor
morants from power, for they have
robbed the people long enough.
Tlje parade of the Catholic Benev
olent Societies in Cincinnati on Sun
day last, was very large, the proces
sion being three miles long. The
address of Bishop McQuaid was a
radical and foolish one in some parts,
and as he took grounds in favor of
division of the School Funds, the
howlers will have something fresh to
go on, . but as there is nobody in fa
vor ot so - ridiculous a proposition
save a few extremeists .among the
Catholics, it will amount to nothing,
for the American people will never
be induced to disturb the present
School system for the benefit of any
We hope the gentleman who "man
ipulates" the Revenue collections
in the 3d District, who resides in
Dayton and edits a paper in Preble
county, will not exorcise himself into
a case of "jim jams," as to whether
the Democrats will hold a county
Convention and nominate candi
dates, or conclude to vote for good,
honest and independent Liberal Re
publican or Democrat, who will an
nounce themselves willing to serve
the people without party pledges
Convention gag rules.
Six vacancies have been caused
rthe Forty-Fourth Congress by death,
and two States have yet to hold'eleci
tions. California chooses four mem
bers iu September, and Mississippi
six members in November. After
this year elections for members
the Lower House will be held in
the States on the Tuesday after the
first Monday in November.
It is certainly very presumptuous
in a person who is not a citizen
our county, to be dictating and fault
ing the independent and thinking
voters, as to how they shall select
the persons to fill their public offices.
It smacks considerable of southern
carpet-bag rule and dictation, but

Never in the history of. the- De
mocracy has there been an occasion
of more importance than will be the
coming Convention. By fidelity to
principle and unselfish devotion to
our organization, the Democracy of
Ohio have earned for themselves the
honorable position of advance guard.
We are no longer engaged in an or
dinary State contest the destinies
of the people have been confided to
the Democratic party of Ohio. Pru
dence, wisdom and courage should
characterize the proceedings of the
Convention of the 17th proximo.
Therefore it is incumbent on the De
mocracy of the several counties to
send, not only full delegations, but
their ablest men; men who are rep
resentative in their character and
who may aid by their counsel to give
harmony and vigor to the delibera
tions of the Convention. We, there
fore, again urge upon yon the neces
sity of sending, representative men.
A Ratification Meeting will be
held in the city of Columbus on the
night of the 17th, which, it is antic
ipated, ' will surpass any similar de
monstration which has ever taken
place in the State. Come prepared
to witness this grand - exhibition of
the unterrilied Democracy. Let no
minor considerations prevent a full
discharge of duty to the party on
this occasion, and keep close to mind
the fact that the stake of the contest
is the redemption of the nalion.
The usual arrangements for carry
ing persons attending the Conven
tion-over the railroads running into
Columbus will be made and announc
ed in due time.

. However disagreeable and unsat
isfactory it may be to Grant's third
term advocates, as to the manner
which a majority in this county have,
for the past few years, seen proper
to select their officials, it is a grati
fying pleasure to know that they
have all proven good, faithful and
honest servants. Partizans, and par
ty disiplenarians and office-seekers,
may just -as well take notice that the
independent voter is abroad, and is
more potent personage than sore
heads or third term advocates. He
don't convene, nominate or resolve,
but votes with judgment and dis
crimination, irrespective of party
clamor anjl clap-trap. His voice has
been heard in this county, and inll
be heard next fall again. It used
be considered disreputable to scratch
a straight ticket, but that is "play
ed," and the' man who now goes
"straight,", simply because his party
ring-masters oder it, is regarded as
fit subject for the lunatic asylum,
We know of but one gentleman se
rious1 j alarmed about the Pope play
ing the devil with the crops and oth
er things in this county. But
lives in Dayton, and edits the Eaton

our people into the belief that Grant's
rotten and thieving Administration
should be continued, he would event
ually kiss the big toe of this terrible

Judge Kelley, of Pennsylvania,
who has been for many years a rep
resentative in Congress, and voted
for all the extreme and harsh legis-
tion directed against the south, has
been traveling through the southern
States, and has changed hi3 views in j
regard to the people down there.
Personal contact and observation of
the actual condition of affairs in that
section, has led him to the conclusion
that no force bills, no Kelloggs, Ca
seys and Packards, are needed there
to make the inhabitants loyal and.
hold them in subjection to the au
thority of the United States. : He
says now, that Arkansas, Mississippi
and Louisiana, did not need the
stringent legislation which the Re
publican party has been enacting
and striving to enact against them.
It would have been better if he and
other leaders of that party had made
a personal examination of the condi
tion of things in those states years
ago, instead of listening to the sto
ries of the "bummers and buzzards,"
who were oppressing and robbing the
defenceless inhabitants. We are
glad to see such prominent men in
the Republican party, as Judge Kel
ley, publicly acknowledge their error.
If the acknowledgment had been
made before the late'Democratic vic
tories, it would have looked better.
