and specie resumption be forced, and
my stock will reach $2,00. It has
paid me about 12 . per cent each

original capital doubled, will satisfy

and give somebody else a chance."
It is questionable, with many peo
ple, whether the Capital of the na
tion is at Washington City or Long
Branch. Previous to the days
political shoddy, when the transac
tion of important public business
was necessary, the President of
United States could always be found
at the post of duty. It is not so, now.

The following ticket is presented
to the Democrats, Liberal and Inde

their support, at the next October
election. It is worthy of the vote of

doubt but that it will receive it In
looking over the names it will be
discovered that they are all literal in
their political, religious and social
views and not a bondholder, Bank-
er, money-loaner or crusader among
them, and it may be -emphatically
termed the People's Independent
Ticket. Each and every one are so
well known throughout the county,
honorable and upright citizens,
that any particular commendation as
to their ability and fitness for the
several positions for which they are
offered, would be superfluous on our
part at present, although we may be-

The great Bank of California became
so full of gold it "busted." We

The other banks there have closed
their doors, not out of respect to the
poor fellows memory, but because
money is so plenty. Money was so
plenty at a Savings Bank in Win

upon its front door last week it
was a no admittance poster.

money. On every hand we hear com-
plaints of too much money. The
telegraph says: "On account of the
pressure oi the money market stocks
are panicky." How can there be
pressure if the money market is not
too full of money? Working men are
complaining, faamers are groaning
beneath the dead loads ot money
they have to carry. We call upon
the party in power to ' contract and
relieve the business community of
money pressure that sinks banks,
stops manufactories, sends men
thousands to tramping over thecoun-
money at uouie. e auimrc your
statemanship, we are proud of your
philanthropy, but we adjure by
your past professions and all your

pressure. Your policy is working

"Tramp, tramp, tramp,
TLe hoys are marching."
We notice in a recent issue of the
Cincinnati Gazette, an editorial ar
ticle entitled "Tramps," which at
tracts our attention. There was a
time when this paper was the Liber-
ty Hall Gazelle. There was a time,
and not so remote, when it claimed
to be the great champion of down
trodden humanity. There was a
time when the sufferings of the poor
negro called from its perpetual fount
of sympathy, lamentations beside
which Jeremiah's are tame and com
nionplace. "The times change and
we change with them." Still we
hardly expected to live to see the
jaVj when the organ of the good
Deacon Richard Smith would chuckle
with delight over the idea of selling
hitc men into bondage. But that
time has come. In the recent edi
torial to which we refer, the Gazette
"The Legislature of New Hanip
dates: shire at its late session passed a very
severe law in regard to them (the
tramps), tor merely begging, any
Justice of the Peace is authorized to
put them to hard labor at the county
or town farm for 6ix months. If they
cannot be profitably employed in
these institutions they are to be
hired out to work for any citizea icho
may choose to bid for their services.
If the vagrant has a legal settlement
iu a.ny town, the Justice is not bound
to send him there until he has earn
ed money en nigh to pay the expenses
of removal. When the prisoner has
been guilty of any offence against
person or property, he is liable to
still heavier punishment."
It is no implied approval the Ga
zette gives to this rugged policy.
How quickly the bondholders' cham
pion forgets humanity and becomes
the the poor man's scourge. "Who
bids higher for this poor, white-headed,
old tramp's services. He was a
soldier in the war of 1812, and has a

Led the red hot bolts of your Uon-
est indignation, in this campaign,

ble. It cost the nation Billions of
treasure and valuable lives without
number, to overthrow.-' the dominion
of power over man in one section of
the land. It was no branch of the
Anglo Saxon stock upon which pow
er laid its mailed hand. Now we see
the greed of capital in the hands of
the few, oppressing the laboring
white man. Unless checked, we
shall soon find ourselves confronted
by a new and broader tyranny, en
trenched with capital, dealing in the
flesh and blood of our own race with
out scruple or remorse, over the
whole Union. What is being done
in New Hampshire will be done in
Ohio, and the cries of the auction
eer selling white men in the Old Gra
nite State will be echoed back from
the broad valley of the Mississippi-
It seems to be the determination
of the Radicals to conduct this cam
paign, as far as they can, by divert

press cry aloud "no popery" and pa

ic defalcation, which they have

facts or not Now, we ask our read

betray a weakness of the true issues,

ity of the violation of the State Con
stitution in the destruction of the

the party that has overthrown the
U. S. Constitution in Louisiana and
Arkansas, trampled it under foot and

Judge Kelly, a Republican mem
ber of Congress from Pennsylvania,
in his speech at Cleveland a short
time ago, is reported to have said,
that if times continue as -they
"Labor would take Capital by
throat, and the scenes of the French
Revolution would be re-enacted."
We do not believe that the Judge
had any intention of inflaming
minds of his auditors, but yet
cannot be denied that we, as a peo
pie, are in iminent danger. The
strikes by tens of thousands of work
ing men, and labor outbreaks all over
the country, is an indication of
temper of those who make their
bread by the sweat of their brow.

Judge Kelly says, that Labor
Capital cannot remain much longer
in their present antagonistic posi
tion. Our country is, indeed, in
deplorable condition. Robberies
defalcations follow so closely that
is impossible to keep count of them.
