Unless the colored men in the

take command of it!

for their suffrage. Honest and capa
ble they would all fill the places for
which they are named with credit to
themselves and their constituents.
Dr. Robertson, the Democratic
candidate for State Senator from this
District, is a man whom the people
can rely upon for honesty and purity
of intentions, and will not be influ
enced or purchased by any corrupt
ring or faction. There is not a parti
cle of doubt about his election.
Senator John Sherman is afraid
(and his fears are echoed by the Re
publican press,) that there will be
ballot box frauds perpetrated in the
South by the. Southerucrs. . Com
menting on this spasm of political
virtue, the Philadelphia Times says :
"The' colossal fraud of 1876, in which
John Sherman was one ot the chief
criminals in the Louisiana electoral
burglary, was the last great wrong
perpetrated against the integrity of
the ballot in the South, and since
then tens of thousands of the most
intelligent colored voters have openly
votei the Democratic ticket and
other hundreds of thousands of col
ored .voters have refused to vote . be
cause their party leaders, largely ap
pointed by Sherman, were notorious
and shameless thieves."

WASHINGTON, D. C.,
Sept. 28, 1885.
The resignation of Dorman B. Eat
on from the Civil Service Commission
may properly be regarded as an ad
missit n on his part that the reform
is not all that his fancy painted it. It
has unquestionably been the fault of
Mr. .baton and his two confreres up
on the commission, that so much ob
loquy has been cast upon the admin
istration of the Civil Service Law,
and the President's rejoinder to Mr.
Eaton's le'ter of resignation, in which
he congratulates him upon . the mag
nilicent way in which the law has
been executed, must te considered
one of those bits of ironical pleasant
ry in which the President is wont to
indulge. While Mr. katon did much
in the way of creating public senti
ment in favor of tl.e reform, he has
evinced a most thorough want of
proper executive ability and a most
lamentable lack of the proper back
bone in an emergency. When we con
sider his action, or want of action, in
the case of Jones, the Indianapolis
post master, and the equally weak
and vacillating course in the ap
pointment of night inspectors in the
New Yors mstom house, we can see
how easily the backbone can be tak
en out of him. Eaton never could
stand up against the politicians, and
the politicians are the only men with I
whom the commission had to deal.
The Domination of Ira Davenport
for the Governorship of New York,
simply demonstrates that the old po
litical bosses in the grand old party
are determined to keep up the ma
chine system, even if defeat be fore
ordained, as it certainly is, after this
nomination. Davenport wai popular
wherever the bloody shirt was flung
to the breeze in years gone by, but
that garment will not avail him now,
any more than will several of the
planks in the Saratoga platform that,
were inserted to catch the votes ot
that numerous class of voters who
ignored Mr. Blaine last year.
I am satisfied that the President
has git en out word to the party lead
ers in New York that they need not
expect any other help from his ad
ministration than that which may
legitimately be extended within, the
purview of the Civil Service act. In
other words, Mr. Clevelaud, at the
risk bf disaster to his pajty, is de
termined to be consistent, and will
live up to his recorded declarations
in regard to Civil Service reform.
The prediction made in these let
ters last spring, that Mr. John 6.
Carlisle would be re-elected to the
Speakership of the House without
serious opposition, may be regarded
as already literally fulfilled. Mr. Ran
dall .has no aspirations in that direc
tion, and if he had the Carlisle star
is too far in the ascendent to do him
any gi od. The heavy fighting that
may be expected in the next Con
gress, will be that which will proceed
from the attempt to repeal the Bland
silver law. The perpetuation of this
law will have the effect to convince a
great many people that the Demo
crats of the House are not favorable
to a sound currency, though whether
the repeal oithis law will accomplish
anything toward securing a ' sound
currency, is a question not to be do
cided by Phono.
Has Labor Business Tact?
The following is from the Toledo
Sunday News, and is reproduced
here as peculiarly adapted to the
thoughtful consideration of members
of labor bodies:
When workingmen engage in au
enterprises and expect the patronage
of brother toilers to help carry it
through, it should be borne in mind
that something more than the suc
cess of that particular enterprise is at
stake. I be issue on trial is the long
disputed question whether working
men have the brain, the judgment
and foresight enough to stand by one
another and aid one another in sc
curing tneir rights, ihe claim is
boastingly made that labor is not
true to itself, that the average labor
er would rather see the monopolists
prosper than a brother toiler; and the
numerous occasions wherein work
ingmen have neglected to aid one an
ether when they could have done so
are pointed out as conclusive proof
that labor is incapabe of improving
its condition, and that all attempts to
encourage it is. wasted time. .Lvery
one knows that should the working
man take only a passing interest in
pushing the few enterprises in which
they are interested they would be
success. It is further known that
were labor to make any special effort
they could be remarkably successful,
The public, and especially the toil
ers, should distinctly understand that
these enterprises in which working
men are engaged are asking no dona
tions or sacrifices of labor. All they
ask is that workingmen give them
the patronage which would go some
where else, lhis costs no money
for unless they can get the worth of
their money their patronage is not
expected. It only requires a dispo
sition on the part of labor to be true'
The Columbus correspondent
the Dayton Democrat says:
"A very strong and determined
and at the same time a quiet, effort
has been and is being made to dem
onstrate to the Democratic County
Committee the necessity of removing
Allen O. Myers and Ed. Young from
the Democratic ticket to prevent the
election of two Republicans. The op
position to uotu nas been growing
continually ever since they were
nominated, and it is now so intense,
especially in the county, where the
Democratic majority comes from, as
to endanger a large part of the local
ticket. It is very doubtful, however,
about these men leaving the ticket,
and the entire ticket in the county-
will be placed in jeopardy, although
composed ot the best kind of men
with the two exceptions noted."

What the manufacturers of Ohio
need is a ma: ket outside the State.

selling goods would not worx at nome,
among old tnenas and neignDors,
how can we expect it to succeed

I submit these questions to the hard
common sense of the working people
of Ohio. Judging the people of those

But it will not be necessary for these

they sink very deep into the hearts
of the southern people. If that most

Gen. Grant prayed for at the verv
close of the war, and that he so fond
ly, so joyfully trusted had come to
the whole American people before
his eyes closed in death. All the in
cidents connected with his death and
funeral services are too fresh in the
minds of the people to need repetition.
Everywhere, North, South, East and
West the people felt that national
peace, concord and perfect unity had
come at last, and come to stay. Can

Grant, delivered in Westminster Ab
bey, London, on the day of his fun
eral said : "And the South has ac
cepted that desperate and bloody ar
bitrament. Two of the Southern
Generals, we rejoice to hear, will
bear Gen. Grant's funeral pall. The
rancor and ill-feeling of the past are
buried forever in oblivion: true
friends have been made out of brave
foemen. Americans are no longer
Northerners and Southerners, Feder-
als and Confederates, but thev are
Americans." So saying Canon Farrar
spoke the sentiments of the civilized
world. Jiut alas! tne exigencies ot
the Republican campaign in Ohio,
the burning, the s.orching ambition
of Senator Sherman to secure a re
election to the Senate, and a possible
nomination to the Presidency, and
of Judge Foraker to wipe out the
disappointment and humiliation of
his tormer defeat are such that in
tlio face of all these facts they again
unfurl and throw to the breeze the
bloody shirt. The people of the Unit
ed States are saddened, horrified, by
the atrocious act. They and their po
litical associates bear this standard
aloft, and Ohio alone of all the States
must suffer the National indignation.
Their financial circumstances may
be such that they can personally as
same these responsibilities; but
how .about the mechanics, their
wives and children that must suffer
from the loss of a market for their
work resulting from this bloody shirt
campaign. Let them answer.
Here is the way General Fitz Lee
commenced his speech at Winchester,
Va. He made his speech on the fa
mous battle field of Fisher's hill.
This is the opening paragraph:
"I thank God that white winged
peace now broods over the land. I
came here to preach the peace and
not war; to carry as my standard the
stars and stripes and not the bloody
shirt. I thank God that the question
of secession has been forever settled
and that now at least every star in
our glorious old flag has a meaning.
I thank God that no vestige of car
petbagism or scalawag governmeat
remains to vex the people."
There is no bloody shirt about that!
Fitz is now for the union forever!

speech said :

frauds the colored people of -their

To this remark Gov. Hoadly, at

"That was a hard tbing for ypij to

hard thing for me to hear. I am the
governor of the state of .Ohio by the

The power of pardon is placed in my

power les3 freely and more strictly
and I have pardoned less criminals
than any governor for fifty vearS,

senator of Ohio as the associate of
murderers, church burners and
cheaters at the ballot boxes; that,

Eaton, April 0, 1885-tf '
Mahone's Ohio Ally.
New York Evening Post.
Mr. Joseph B. Foraker, the defeat
ed candidate for governor of Ohio in
1883, and that party's nominee for
the same office in 1885, in a recent
speech had this to say;
'I might, if it were necessary, cite
unquestioned statistics to show that
for the purpose of making a solid
south in the interest of the Demo
cratic party more men have been kill
ed and wounded in the last ten years
throughout the seceding states than
were killed and wounded at Gettys
burg." This is as outrageous and abomin
able a slander as was ever uttered by
a reckless and unprincipled politi
cian, il is uara to ueueve mat a man
sufficiently prominent to become on
two consecutive occasions the candi
date of a great party for governor of
the lburth state in the uniou should
so prostrate himself to base politics,
as he unquestionably did in the ut
terance quoted, and yet it is impos
sible to conceive of a public man so
ignorant as not to know that such a
horrible charge is utterly false.
As Judge Foraker gives no sVatis
tics, questioned or unquestioned, to
prove his baseless assertion it is not
Droposed here to discuss it; but we
would like to ask the white voters of
Virginia how any of them can recoa
cile their manhood and good citizen
ship wi; h the support of Mahone and
his followers, who are cheek by jowl
with Foraker, Sherman and the other
bloody shirt Republican politicians
of the north and west. They certain
ly must so recognize the duty which
they owe their state as to do every
thing in their power to visit with over
whelming defeat that party wuicu
holds up its head in Virginia and
boldty owns its sympathy with men
who charge Virginians and all other
southerners, indiscriminately, with
being murderers and assassins.
There never was a better oppor
tunity to teach a disgraceful and dis
graced party a salutary lesson than
now-anoraed all honest Virginians
of both races and unless the disposi
tion of the good people of that com
monwealth has been thoroughly mis
understood Mahone and his abettors
will be buried next November under
an avalanche of freemen's ballots.
The Republican newspapers have
raised a great hue and cry over the
removals of postmasters. They have
asserted that these officials have been
turned out with unseemly haste, and
that the Presidential energy has been
largely devoted to hunting down Re
publican postmasters and filling their
places witn uemocrats. inis action
they assert has been for political effect
aud for the purpose of influencing
the fall elections. The statement made
by the Postmaster-General shows the
falsity of the charges above referred
to. From that statement it appears
that durins the five months of Mr
Cleveland's administration ho has
made 467 appointments of Presiden
tial postmasters, 2t4 ot wiucn nave
been to vacancies caused by expira
tion of term of service and 193 iu place
of suspended officers. The larger
number of these appointments would
have been necessary under any acini in
istratiou, aud there have been less than
two suspensions a day.
This showins certainly docs not
prove that there has been any undue
naste in removiug partisan pusuiKis
ters. but rather that the Presideut's
nrosress in that direction has been ex
trenielv moderate. In relation to the
eases of suspension, the Postmaster
General says that m every instance tne
case has ueeu caretuliy cousictereti up
on the evidence in pursuance of the
same orincinles by which the Prosi
dent was guided in the beginning, and
that a large number ot solicited re
movals have been refused because the
proofs were not 6uch as in the Presi
dent's judgment, to warrant such ac
After this authoritative statement,
we trust tho llepublican press will
have the manliness to do President
Cleveland justice and retract the
charges they havo so indiscriminately
made. Perhaps that is too much to
expect; but they should at least have
the decency to refrain from further
charares in this direction until thev
have first investigated the subject and
made sure that there is some just
foundation for criticism.
