IL MEANS DAVIS, Editor.
Wednesday Morning, Oot. 22 1878.
The Political Outlook.
October is the month of eleotions.
On Tuesday the Republicans and
Democrats of Ohio were pitted in a
State election, which was ohiefly im
portaut in deciding who Is to be next
U. S. Senator. On the 15th Califor
nia uloeted three Judges. In this
State the Democrats made no nomi
nations, and the contest was between
the monopolists and anti-monopolists.
The forner party call themselves Re
publicaus. Iowa will soon be the
theatre of a hot contest between the
Republicans and farmers. The form
er have horetoforo carried the State
for many years by not loss than 40,
000 majority. But the party has
bcoomo so corrupt of late that the
farmers have risen in open rebellion,
and propose making a equare uncom
promising fight. An idea of the
strength of the farmers may be
gathered from fact that they are ex
pected to'.win. This will be a heavy
blow to the Republicans, and will
doubtless entail the loss of several
neighboring States. The Republican
Bolahazzars may well be frightened
at the oninous words of warning.
Although now enjoying almost un
disputed away, they should remember
that Tammanay was never so strong as
just before It was crushed by ati in
dignant people. New York is totter
ing in the balance. Last year the
administration carried everything,
'owing to tu feuds existing among
the Demiorats. But the classic he
rocs of Apollo Hall, and the Big
Indians of Tammany have rosolved
to unites and when pwans and war
whoopa are commingled, the "party
of progressa" will be routed from the
fiold and laid on the shelf alongside
of Tweed and Sweeny and Conolley.
In \Massachusetts, too, the administra
tion burnt its fingers severely in using
Butler as a eat's paw, to control local
elections. It was also recently
thrashed out In California, where last
year it walked over the course. An
active campaign is progressing in
Virginia, and the Consorvatives, if
unmolested by the government, will
doubtless achieve a victory,
It is Lime for the Republican party,
as it nigw is, to die.' It was formed
for tho. abolition of slavery. It was
maintained In power by the issues of
the war. Rt has done someghing that

If the people are true to them'

If not, we way expect military des.

Another Grab Game,
The Uuion-fierald of Saturday
contains the following :
CiJust before going to press we
have learned, from reliable authority,
that his Excellency the Governor has
expressed himself as in favor of the
issue by the General Assembly, at its
coming sefision, of one million dol
lars in ills Receivable, for the pur
pose of relieving the financial em.
barrassment "of the people, brought
about by the necent pame--said ills
Receivable to be taken by the State
in payment for taxes."
It has heretofore been our idea
that the Legislature was called for
the avowed purpose of reducing the
State debt. In the tooth of that,
comes the announcement from the
Radical organ that cur esteemed
Governot- proposes to accomplish this
much desired result by first Inoreas
ing the State debt by anothet million
dellar.. This plan establishes his
Excellency's reputation as the great.
est financier of the age. We are
struok with this novelty of the soheme.
It is calculated to inspire a person
unlearnod In radical book-keeping
with feelings of deepest awo and ad
miration. The thought certainly had
never occurred to us that the surest
method of contraction was expapsion.
If his Honor can put his scheme into
suocossful practice, he will be a pub
lic benefactor by inaugurating a new
era in political ooonomy, Then every
poor bankrupted devil who is now
over head and ears in debt can free
himself froin his burden and regain
his credit by issuing more notes of
hand receivable for dues to himself.
The mtillcnium is at hand. The world
is coming to an and.
But, soriously speaking, we de
nounee this scheme as a fraud and
wholesale swindle. It is nothing
more nor lo*s than a deliberate at.
tempt still further to rob the people.
If oov. Moses succeeds in having the
bill passed, setting aside the question
of constitutionality it will be an out.
rage. Who will be benofited by
this inoroaso of debt? The Treas
urer shows by his report that an
alarming defioiency of nearly a mil
lion exists, besides untold sums in
school certificates. Should the State
issue these bills, they will beapplied
digootly or indirectly to pay these
claims, many of which are fraudulent,
and lsued only for the aggrandise
ment of Radical harpies. That is
t-he only way by which they oan come
into circulation. Then having onoe
been issued, they will be received ini
payment of taxes. The empenses of
the governmwent are enormous, and to
meet this an-d the Interest ordered b~y
the Supremne Court to be paid on the
bonds, several millions in greenbacks
are needed. These greenbaoks must
be forthcoming at any ratc, and any
State bills will be so much extra to
be collected from the people.
We want no issue of bills from the
present administration. They may
offet some good In relieving the
money market now, but their ulti
mate result will be ruinous. 8ines
the disastrous effort to issue the Blue
Ridge bond scrip, the public will
view all similar issues with suspicion,
and the proposed bills would be
hawked around at a discount, to be
redeemed at some future daty at par.
Times are hard and money is scarce,
but we will try the certified bank
oheeke a while longer before adopting
the plan proposed by the great Pinan

When we look at other States and
see the energy of their faiters'and
the interest manifested in those ethi.

apathy existing in this State, we are
forced to conclude that ouir misfor

by a little observiation ? We should not
be surprised to hear of some back
woods farmer scratching the soil with
a forked- litab drawn by a yearling
steer because the -tax on iron is too
great for him:to.buy-a plow.
Every one will acknowledge that
agriculture is baekttard, Now, as
before said, these fairs are designed
to serve as-dbhools to fartheis, and the
larger they are the greater instruction
they will afford. This instruotion
wil be supplied not only by a large
display of farming -implements and
products but by an annual inter

anxiously arai'd by, thoutands of

Much moro could be said in favor
of. the fair, but we will conclude our
argument by saying that these asso
eiations are the only organiz:ations in
the State in the hands of the whites.
This circumstance, of itself, should
commend them to us.
We believe d h9po ihe fair will
be a success. e. also .wlah that
our farmers wold take tho matter in
hand, and our merchants too, for
their prosperity depends on the sue.

sum asked.of eocb. individugal. is only

A few days since J. W.Kennel of
Pembroke, N. Y., took his mare from
the barn, leaving a two months colt
behind. On his ieturn, some two hours
after, he found the colt on the roof of
the barn. Being unable to follow the
mare, it had sought some meanus of
esonpe. In the first place it had
gone up a flight of stairs-fifteen
steps-then over the hay mow, and
out of a window in the gable end of
the harn, on to a half roof, From
this elevation it worked its way to
the roof of the main barn, whth i
very steep ; then it returned to the
half-roof, whence, on the return of
the mother, it jumped to the ground,
a diatance of fourteen feet, a feni
which it accomIpliblied without being
