HOOSIER VANDALS. The Desecrat the Grave of Unio Soldiers in Sev- era Indian a Ceme- teries. The Dastardly Deed Was Done by People Wh Were Celebrating Cleveland's Election. There are dark places in Hoos ierdom. Last year rancorous cop- perheads in a school district of that State refused to permit a patriotic schoolma'am to fly the flag of her country in front of the school house where she was teaching in fact the pole was cut down and the flag torn into shreds. A nights after election, while Democrats were celebrating great victory of their party, few the the sev eral cemeteries were entered and the tombstones over the graves of Union soldiers were daubed with led paint and otherwise disfigured. It was not the work of drunken rowdies, for none but the graves of soldiers were desecrated and the operations of the cowardly ghouls were not confined to one cemetery. The Pioneer Press editorially re- fers to the Hoosier hyenas in the following scorching language. THE SLIME O THE SERPENT. The old saying that not every Demo crat is a horsethief, but that every horsethief is a Democrat conveyed, un der an hyperbole, a truth that is illus trated by the desecration of the graves of Union soldiers in the State of In diana. I is true that there are plenty of Democrats whose blood will boil as readily as that of Republicans^ when they hear of this infamy but it is also true that in the Democratic party only could agents for such a crime be "found. W are_apt to forget, wkea we-hear the patriotic speeches of Democratic lead ers, and acknowledge the high charac ter of Democrats prominent in public life, many of whom were formerly Re publicans, what the substratum of that party really is. W are blamed when we remember it and told that, to re call the acts and words of the vile and shameful men who during the war were as vindictive in their hatred of the Union as they were cowardly in their unwillingness to go to the front and fight, is to '-wave the bloody shirt." Ye that element is there. And it is not in the South, where men wear their enmities openly and royally, and are staunch as friend or foe, but in the foul and stagnant pools of the North, where the copperhead breeds, that we find the Democrat, who trail the slime of the serpent o\e their partj, and forbid us to forget that its fangs are as venomous as of old. It would be impossible of any other party that it should, man hour of re joicing and victory, go out systematic ally and in cold blood to defile the graves of those who died for their country. W should like to say that it would be impossible in any other State than Indiana, where the craven Whi te Cap outrages flouiish, and where the miasma of the native swamp still keeps pestilential life in the frame of the traitorous order of war days known as the Knights of -the Golden Circle. I is nearly thirty years since the war was ended. Brave men on both sides have forgotten their differ ences. Results are accepted, and allcame that the most rancorous now desires is to let oblivion cover the passions of the time that tried the nation's strength. But the copperhead will not have it so His slow, cold poibonous blood has held the sullen rancor of defeat. Foiled all those years ago in his attempt to strike the nation in the rear, he still feels darkly and blindly about him for a victim. An now as then, afraid to face the living, he steals to the church yard to vent his sploen upon the unre sisting dead. I is the old legend of the ghouls come true. Men who cantra do this, men who only do not-honor the patriot dead, but who find a hideous satisfaction in defacing their lowly and moss-grown monuments are less and worse than human. These men are Democrats. They marked their act distinctly by making it part 'of their celebration of a great Democratic vic tory. An the Democratic party, though as a whole it would scorn such an act, must bear the odium of those who have been faithful to it from its worst estate. All of bitter disloyalty panaiatta NUMBER 50. that lives upon American soil belongs I with Democracy. It is in the hour of triumph that the hands which are sul lied with the blackest deeds are held up for their reward. Some of the good Democratic readers of the UNION may think the above is rather rough on their partythat it is a Repub lican lie. But here is a paragraph taken from the telegraph columns of the Democratic St. Paul Globe of the 24th ult., which tells of fur ther desecrations. TOMBSTONES DESTROYED. TAND4LS CEMETERIES DESECRATING IN INDIANA. MARTINSVILLE, Ind Nov. 23.The cemetery north-ol here was discovered yestevdaj morning to be desecrated iroie than others. Th tombstones ovei eveiv soldier's grave in the ceme tery had been broken to pieces by means of an ax. Th city marshal re ceived a telegram last evening from Pacific Grove, Cal., offering men and money to aid in the search and prose cution Other ofieib ha\e been re ceived, but none will hkelj be accepted as the houio etei'ans will try to bring the crimmalo to justice. A large fund has been contributed for this purpose. There are many suspects. THE HUMAN JACKASS A Defined by the Sarcastic Ed itor of the "Wheat and Chaff" Column of the Minneap- olis Journal. Besides the human hog, an ani mal which has been considered in its different phases ^ogie natural history articles whi 45c llave ap peared in this colut^ there is another cross which it' ?^serving of mention. The animal now under discussion is the human jackass. This species abounds in all parts of the country, but is generally found in the big cities where it roams around at its own sweet will, jmd brays %b the slightest .excuse^ It strays into business offices where men are busy, and brays ad vice at them and wags its ears to emphasize its remarks while the victim groans a melancholy ob ligate to the raucous and strident tones. It is impervious to hints and can only be removed with a club wielded by a vigorous arm. It is a beast which has no pride in its ancestry and no hope of pos terity, but is self-sufficient in its own generation and can transmit none of its detestable character- istics. And that is the only good thing about it. If it could only realize that it was a jackass it might go off and hide itself, but it regards itself as a sage and a para- gon of perfection and cannot even feel its own ears. The only thing it is good for is to serve as a tar get for the practice of sarcasm, be cause the shafts do not penetrate its hide, and consequently the tar get remains intact and does not have to be renewed. A Chance to Choose. In the early days of railroads, the passenger had '-Hobson's Choice1' 11 of accommodationstake the passenger coach (such as it was) or walk. Dur ing the war of the Union, Mr. Pullman upon the scene and invented the sleeping car. Still it was "Hob son's Choice''unless vou paid an ad ditional charge, and tipped the porter also. Now it is a fact that there are many persons, rich enough to buy a railroad ticket, and intelligent enough to travel without getting lost, who do not care to pay extra for either comfort or luxuriousness. The Burlington Route was quick to recognize the ex. istence of this fact4 and it oquips all its principal passenger trains with re clining chair cars, and makes no ex charge to any one for occupying seats in them. Its morning and even ing trains between St. Paul and Minne apolis on the north, and Chicago and St. Louis on the east and south, carry these cars. Make a note of it, and ask your home agent for tickets via the Burlington Route, or write to W. J. C. Kenyon, Gen. Pass. Agent, St. Paul, Minn. FOR SALE: A good young mare, weight, 2,400 lbs., cheap.
