THE JUDGESHIP.
There will be a Common Tlcas
Judge to elect this fall in the Judi
cial District composed of Darke,
Montgomery, Butler end Preble
counties, through the election of
Judge "Gilmore to the Supreme
Bench. It has been agreed by the
several Democratic Executive Com
mittees in the District, that Judge
Hume, (now filling the vacancy by ap
pointment until the election,) be de
clared the Democratic candidate for
the position without the formality of
a Convention, which action of the
Committees we feel safe in saying,
will meet the approbation of the vot
ers of the District. That he will be
elected by a huge majority there is
no doubt.
Last year the crusade, this year
'the Know-Nothing and crusade a
gainst the Catholic.
The demand of the hour is: that
. Grant shall give a name to the "cir
cumstances" which miiiht make it
an imperative duty to accept a third
nomination.
The Republican newspapers will
never forgive the Democratic State
Convention for utterly destroying
their scheme to arouse a religious
excitement over the school question.
Governor Hayes wants the people
of Ohio to build and furnish a Gov
ernor's mansion at Columbus. It
will cost only about $300,000. Gov
ernor Allen says the people should
do nothing of the kind. The Gov
ernor should pay his house rent the
same as other people.
THE FOURTH OF JULY.
As we draw close upon another
anniversary of the glorious day
which gave birth to our nation, amid
the preparations for its celebration
with due .honor and enthusiasm,
thoughts of the struggle of our fore
fathers for the liberty we now enjoy,
and the self-sacrifices and daring
deeds by which it was obtained,
crowd upon the mind. And fore
most, most prominent, because the
first and most important of all
stands the action of the Third Con
tinental Congress, during the first
week of July, 1776. The tyranny, op
pression, and misrule of the British
Crown over the American colonies
for a long series of j-cars, had ren
dered the yoke of bondage distastc
' ful to them, and for several years be
fore the decisive action of Independ
ence Day, the leading minds of the
colonics had resolved that after ur
gent appeals to the ruling powers for
redress a.d protection, if their peti
tions were not responded to, they
would renounce allegiance to the
crown of Great Britain, and estab
lish an independent government.
When the Third Continental Con
gress assembled in 1776, Richard
Henry Lee, of Virginia, offered a res
olution declaring the independence
of the united colonics, which he sup
ported by an eloquent and forcible
speech, detailing at length the tyran
ny and grievances to which the col
onies had been subjected, and urg
ing the dissolution of the ties which
liad so long held ' them under subjec
tion. After much free discussion
the resolution Was. adopted, and
committee of five was appointed
prepare a Declaration of Independ
ence, which consisted of Thomas
Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin
Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Rob't.
R. Livingston. The drafting of the
Declaration was assigned to Jeffer
son by the committee, who thus be
came the author of the most memor
able document which history records.
The document was slightly amend
ed, reported by the committee of
whole, and agreed to by the House.
It was signed on the fourth, and
dcred by Congress to be read to
assembled multitude in Independ
ence square, and was immediately
proclaimed throughout the colonies.
It was received with shouts of
and every demonstration of approba
tion. This immortal manifesto
been esteemed by every true-hearted
American as the charter of our coun
try's freedom, and posterity not
delights to honor the event which
teemed with such mighty results,
the memories of these glorious fifty
six who affixed their names to
document, which . was to consign
. them to destruction or render them
immortal, are revered and cherished,
and live green in the hearts of
descendants.
HOW THEY DIFFER?
While the champion crusade organ
of Preble . county would make the
people believe that the Democrats
have turned a complete somersault,
and gone over to the crusaders, the
Miami Helmet, a rampant Prohibi
tion paper, and edited by Isaac Mor
ris, late of the Eaton Register, thinks
quite different!' and speaks thusly
of the temperance plank in the Dem
ocratic platform. We frankly admit
he is very nearly correct:
"The fourteenth and last, says, as
plainly as it could if it used the
words: Drink what yon please; keep
the Sabbath asj-ou please; sell whis
ky as you please, this is none of our
business."
Of our candidate for Licntenant
Governor, who. seems to be the great
bugaboo for the crusade organs -to
frighten the whisky influence to the
support of their crusade part', the
editor of the Helmet says:
"As to Gen. S. F. Cary, our say
shall be short We know hiin ier-
sonally and well. As to
Temperance, we believe him to be
an entirely sober man, but he has no
i .. : : . it.. .1 u .1 . i- v . .
i..ii.ij iu e uuu t U1 N ..
does. That, he savs, is none of his
business. For such a Temperance
man who would make his ballot tell
for sobriety and good order should
not vote."
We give Bro. Morris credit for be
ing entirely correct in regard to Mr.
Cary's temperance views. Like ev
ery other sensible and reasonable
man, Gen. Cary would of course, pre
fer seeing all men sober and indus
trious, but is not in favor of "crusa
ding' the whole country because a
few will violate the law of decency
and propriety in the use of liquor.
He is no bigot or fanatic on this
question, hence the Helmet will not
support him, but will go for Gov.
Hayes, the $a00 contributor to the
crusade movement. Let the Dayton
city gentleman have this Bickham
ized for the benefit of his Preble
county readers.
Let every Republican in Preble

read them carefully and candidly

editor of the Register, has the same
grounds for flying in a passion and

which mentioned him with being "at-

sition is pleasant, Cononel, consider-
ing the heat!
The thirteenth resolution of
Democratic platform settles the howl
of Grant's organ-grinders about any
division of the School Fund or "Cath
olic influence," so far as the Demo
cratic party of Ohio is concerned,
and knocks the bottom out of
slop-bucket that held their only pol
itical capital to run the coming cam
paign. But, notwithstanding
emphatic language expressed there
in, the howl will continue for want
of other material.
The Republicans in their platform
indorsed Grant and his $100,000
salary -grab as "capable and judi
cious, and now ask the honest
independent voters of Ohio, to go
the polls this fall and stultify every
principle of manhood they possess.
by sactioning this insult. If
tax-payers of Preble county feel
giving encouragement to, and uphold
ing barefaced robbery in high places,
they should support the Republican
ticket.
If the Eaton Register keeps on
will soon become as loud for
whisky influence as it was a year
for the crusade. However, it
only last until after the election,
when if the $500 contributor to
crusade be chosen Governor, it
then become the champion organ
for that element, which
bloom and blussoni iu and around
Eaton.

Excellency, and tell it not in Gath
they- don't say a word about the
administration of the "capable and
judicious statesman." This looks
very much like a desperate effort on
the part of the Maine Republicans to
avert the fate that befell their party
in other States last fall, by washing
their hands clean of Grant, his ad
ministration and all its iniquities.
The Ohio Republicans will endeavor
to .carry the load and force it upon
the people as a "distinguished suc
cess !" i
It is remarkable how well ( !) post
ed in Preble county political affairs
the gentleman is, who resides in the
city of Dayton and edits the Eaton
Register! The correctness ( !) with
which he scoops up the political sit
uation of his opponents, stamps him
as a keen scenter of astonishing
events! It is a pity this genius had
not been turned to use long ago in
the steerage of a hand-organ for the
Long Branch loafer. 'Scat!

Last year the hobby of the Repub
lican party was temperance and the
crusade, and the Eaton Register was
its organ in this county,- supported
and encouraged the whole thing.
That didn't win, and it is dropped
and "Catholic alliance" is its hobby
this year. Proscription is the cardi
nal doctrine of th is party.
Here is another patriotic carpet
bagger being persecuted one who
has been "driven from home." The
Hon. C. P. Leslie of South Carolina,
firm belie ver in Grant for the Pres
idency, "first, last and all the time,"
embezzled $440,000 while Land Com
missioner. For this innocent act, a
Sheriff started out to arrest the Hon.
Mr. Leslie, who had to fly from home
to preserve his liberty. Ihus are
the saints continually persecuted.
The action of the Democratic State
Convention relative to the School
question robs the Radical party of
seven-eighths of its political capital,
and gives them a backset that makes
them feel terribly blue.
