The Oliio'Kiccllon.
'flic Cincinnati Commercial of yesterday
confidently expresses the opinion that
Judge West, the Republican candidato
for Ciovernor in Ohio, will bo elected
next Tuesday. It thinks* hi* majority
will be lar^fr than that of Hayes two
years ago, and for the reason that his
election will, in the estimation of the
people, "mean, substantially, approbation
of the administration and n tendency toward
betterment of the currency
U'.. think this indementot the Comtiur
rial will b? borne out by tin* renuIt next
TuesMlHjr. Therein u feeling in t!.e air,
jmt :<? there wn? two y??.irn ngo, Hat the
current had net in toward* the Kepubli*
cans. It will he remembered how decided
wa< the change in thin reject two
year'*??') jtwt before the election. The
name thing is ?sid to Im? plainly discerni*
hie this year.
The (iiutltc of yesterday a.?ka the que*tion,
"Why should nny business wan, or
any man who lives by his own industry
vote to place the Democratic party in
powerThin is a question that should
come home to every voter in < )hio. The
working people of Uiatern Ohio who read
such Democratic papers as the SteubcnJ
ville Gaulle, an ardent greenback paper
miy think that they will renp some benefit
by voting the Democratic ticket,
but this is pure delusion on
their part. The Democracy of New
York, and the Eastern Democracy
generally, have resolved that they will not
go into the paper money again. They
hive even gone further than this and resolved
that they will take no steps backward
on the issue of a sound currency.
This settles the question no lar art the
Democracy is concerned, for the parly
cannot afford to ignore thlrt attitude of
the monieil end of their organisation.
Tne prem'um on gold is now no weak
that all iten of any financial intelligence
whatever nee how ridiculous* it would he
to go into a re-intl&tion of the currency.
Were we tu do ho the civilized world would
unite in pronouncing us a nation of In*
nitica. We would be regarded hs a
doomed people in an industrial point ?f
view, because the end would certainly !*
a great crash and general repudiation.
While we are discussing the currency
mention, day after day, all values, in
spite of our talk, are settling down to a
specie level. We cannot htop this pro* ,
was, it seems, even by the threat to reinflate,
because the natural tendency in 1
that direction is so strong in a country
that is drawing gold from Kuropc to pay
for its heavy exports that the premium
dinks of its own weight. Our immense ,
crop* and the European war are factors '
in the matter of our salvation which the
Kreenhackers cannot neutralize.
If the people of Ohio will only regard
their interests in the spirit of enlightened
selfishness next Tuesday, they will vole
the Kepulilican ticket. A few more steps
and we shall be on a solid basis for a
business revival that will last. We can
then build on a foundation of real instead
of fictitious values. We can produce on j
a par with all nations that do business
with real money, and thus not only hold 1
our own market against them, hut take ,
all the markets of this Continent away
from them.
X .tufa nf nf ll.ia L-I.i.t I
prosperity to the people of Ohio, an it 1
does to the people ot every State in the '
Union. The party that moves in thisdi- ,
rectiun, rather than in the direction of
reintUtion, ia the Republican party. Under
the stress of great temptation, time
lifter time since the close of the war, it
ha* stood up for the gradual betterment
of tin? currency and for the preservation
<>f the National credit. Rut for ^tbia
standing up of the Republican party for
the right, backed by the virtue and intelligence
of the people, the country would '
he to-day in a hopeless slough of irredeemable
paper money, just as France
wm at the close of the last century.
We appeal to the Republicans of East- 1
fri? Ohio, wherever our paper is read
miiiuiik mem, not to oe uecciveu oy any
nhort-Higlited view of their true interest*
into nn abandonment of the position
which the party hnn maintained
throughout the long struggle over
the currency question. Stand by the '
teachings of nil history on this
important issue. No nation ever tampered
with its credit with impunity.
Nothing is truer than that whatever n
people sow that Khali they also reap in
financial matters. It is just as impossible
to produce real riches by printing
certificates of debt as it is by taking
thought to add a cubit to one's stature.
Both feats arc alike impoesible.
The F.piscopul Convention. It
will be seen that the movement
looking to a change of name was net on
foot in the Episcopal Convention yesterday.
Dr. Do Ko?en, the celebrated highchurchman,
made the motion for the appointment
of a committee to take the
"Utter into consideration.
It is maintained by those who object
to the present name, that the church in a
branch of the church Catholic; its minister*,
as they claim, being in undeniable
fcuccesjion from the Apostles, and they
argue that *lho name ought to conform
thereto. Though the change of name
will lure eloquentladvocates, it is not
Mieved that it will be carried nt thia
session at least.
An effort will pro bably be made to
?I -!? ??- ' -
?vttcu nuu niuipiu/ iuo pervite uu ni 10
afford more scope (or tbo sermon. It is
complained that the elaborato length ol
tlid present service reduces the sermon to
x hare homily, instead of allowing it
room to be a main leature of tho worship.
Here, again, the objector* will
probably fail to carry their point, juat
*ct, m the large \fldy of the Kpiscopali*
aniaro much attached to the present service,
from association and on account of
?U intrinsic beauty.
Among the'other subjects that will occupy
the attention of the Convention this
session, will be the grouping of the dlo<* *
Into synods for greater convenience
in church work; matters of Christian edu.
cation; courses of theological stud?; the
relations of the church with the Kastern
church, the old Catholics, the Jensenists
of Holland and others, and the canon instituting
deaconesses. It is also said that \
a number of new dioceses will be formed, '
and that West Virginia will be one of '
them. Judge (1. W. Thompson is one of
the delegates representing the Went Vir- .
ginia Episcopalian* in the Convention. *
Whisky it* a Payer Debt. The
return* from the^Mofl'et register up
to October 1st ate encouraging. The Richmond
Ditpatch of Thursday furnishes us
with full returns from nil the saloons of /
that city. The hum total ?Iiowh that the
old Virginians arc not only drinking
freely hut likewise drinking to some purpone.
Thin is the true way to drink. It *
in on the principle that it is a good thing
to die for one's country. The next thing
to dying in battle for one's country
is to die some other way, in ^
time of peace, for the enhancement of
the public revenuer. Up to the invention
of the Mullet register there was no good '
way for a well disposed man to gradually
immolate himself financially for the ben*
em 01 uicaiaio ol Virginia. r?iow, However,
every Virginian enjoys that opportunity.
They can not only drink and be
merry, but they can drink and pay ofi' the c
publicdebt. While depleting themselves j
physically and financially they can.do so ^
in the role of martyrs. Whether they twill
hereafter be esteemed and canonized ^
as "blessed martyrs" is another question.
In this short space of 17 days the patri- n
ots of Richmond have swallowed 202,380 k
drinks,and the tax thereon has amounted t)
to $3,848 78. The liquor dealers think
that this is a fearful drain on their customers.
The Ditpalch Rays that they arc o
arranging to bring out candidate* for the r
Legislature who will go in for a repeal of j
the law. We opine, however, that j
they will simply gnaw a file in so a
doing. The people of the .State of
Virginia [are more numerous than the ^
people of the city of Richmond, and they v
will, in the spirit in which Artemus Ward e
was willing to prosecute the war, by sacrificing
all his relations, Ik? entirely will- D
ingto ?ee the cities and towns, and the j,
Cross roads'taverns of the State, pay the p
IntcreHt on the public debt. We are of l>
the opinion tliat nince the war they know a'
a good tiling when they see It in the shape
of money, and will not be apt to let go- ^
If they do they are gone.

Minister Seward, which he claims was
prompted by improper motives; that
Seward's hostility was due to the fact
i that Myers liad opposed him in corrupt
j and improper transactions; that Seward
. was interested in building roads and rail*
I ways in the vicinity of Shanghai, and used
I his inlluencc to force those cnternrises
upon the Chinese people in contravention
of the principles of the International
law and treaty obligation?; that Seward
leaned the Consulate buildings and rented
them to the United States at a profit of ;
$400 per month; that one of the United
States Marshals, John Phu-nix, had been
serving live years under temporary appointment
at an annual salary of $1,000,
while the fees of the office had been appropriated
by Seward and Bradford, Vice
Consul at Shanghai, and the name course
had been pursued with Phoenix's predecessors,
and that the records had been
mutilated to cover up those illegal practices.
These and other transactions were
discovered by Myers and met his opposition,
which occasioned Seward's hostility.

One?How His Creditor* Propose
to Manage Ills Affairs.
New Yobk, October 5.?The creditors
of Frank Leslie to-day adopted a report
to the committee appointed to devise the
statement. The report advised the creditors
to consolidate their interests and entrust
the entire business to a board of
management, consisting of 5 of the principal
creditors. It is also stated that af
ter ucarelul examination the books were
found to be in great confusion. No bal- c
mice sheet lias lwen made since 1873, and (
the books had not been written up since 1
' March last. The business is considered a t
1 paying one. Leslie had drawn very t
largely on the resources of the establish- r
1 ment, the amount being about $75,000 c
per annum, which in their judgment was y
, in excess of the profits. The business had r
also been conducted very extravagantly. 1
1 The committee thought in three years s
the debt could be paid. A plan was pro- 1
posed that Le*lie have supervision of the c
businesa and be allowed 20 per cent profits
as salary, and SO per cent be divided
pro rata, ijuarterly among the creditors.
The board oi managers consist of ex- y
Governor Rice, of Massachusetts, Wm. ;
H. Parsons, John H. Ifall, Edward Good- 1

London, October 5.?A Berlin diepatch w
says the Russians officially acknowledge w
the loBA of 52,000 men up to September w
27 th.
Some dispatches May the Ruwiian grain
harvest is disappointing both in quality
and quantity. The wet weather in August
and the scarcity of laborer* are as* p1
signed as the causes of the short yield. h'
Further particulars of the tattle before 01
Kars make it evident that the Russians w
assaulted the Turkish positions along the CI
whole line and were repulsed with heavy
loss. The main action waa fought Tuesday.
The line extended from the Great v
and Little Yagui to the fortilied hills in
Kuriskada Plain, as far as Ani, on the }?
Arapacm river with the centre advanced
toward the river and raiting on KizieLepe.
The Kussians, reinforced by new ^
troops and those lately em ployed against ^
the Caucasian Insurgent, begun the et
battlo at day break, Tuesday, by an as- *e
aault on the Great Yagui. The extreme
outwork of Muktarh Pasha'* fortilica- bi
cations, 12 miles due eawt from Kara,
seemed to be taken by surprise. A single a
Turkish Battalion, defending the Great at
Yagui, was cut to pieces or captured with cr
the post, after two hours' obstinate de- tr
fence, which gave the Turks an oppor- Tl
tunity to prepare for the next assault. F'
Up to this point all accounts agree, but t'1
regarding subsequent events they are to
very conllicting. co
A Turkish official dispatch says a great ar
battle has ensued, lasting l.'t hours. The ^
repeated Kussian attacks were repulsed Ci
with a heavy Iobs. ch
A bulletin from Grand Duke Michaels 'h
headquarters, at Karaj.-tl, dated the 4th
inst., says: After the capture of the Great c''
Vaugui it was found that the Little Yagui ca
was eo strongly fortitied that the attempt Ja
io assault was considered premature. Tl
After the 13 battallions sent from the ol
furks to reinforce Malkt&r Pasha had at
i>een repulsed our troops fortified them- ,n
?elves in tho positions they occupied. ev
[)ur loss on Tuesday was y,(JG9 killed and Ct
wounded; enemies losses not lens. We
:aptured 200 meu.
The Turkish account an to the repeated
ittacks after tlio capture of the first
I'urkish positions seem to be correct,
)t her wise there could not have been G,000
nen killed and wounded. The two thou- tic
land men captured by the Russians were be
orobably a remnant of the garrison of the th
i'agui. The Russians alao attacked the foi
centre at Rizletepe, but were repulsed si- pe
nultaneously. The Russian forco mov- an
ng from the direction of Aui endeavored C'a
.0 turn the Turkish right and get between foi
Muktar Pasha and Kars. Thin in the sei
uovement referred tobyacorresnondent, p?
vhosays hopes are entertained of cutting
>fl'Muktar Pasha from Kara. Of this
iffair a Turkish bulletin nays that after
ive hours of lighting the Russian force
>fsix battalions of infantry and two reginents
of cavalry were driven back and
pursued to the brinks of the Arpacis. ,.
The Turks estimate the Russian force J>
ingaged against their left at 33 battalions clc
>f infantry and four regiments of cavalry. Pr
Little Yaguf was assaulted live times and
aken and retaken. The movement arigainst
the Turkish right flank was so
lear succeeding that Mukhtar Pasha's
:ommunication with Kars at one time
vere actually severed. Eventually the
epulse was complete along the whole 51
