best efforts, he sinks deeper and
deeper into debt, till the sheriff
cleans him out, and he starts West to
begin again. The time has come for
us to turn over tv new leaf. Our boys
and girls should be taught to lov*'
labor by qualifying themselves to do
it efficiently. We must turn out
fewer professionals, and more skilled
artisans and producers. We must
grow and fabricate the immense
quantity of articles that we now an
nuatly import, and so reduce tlie
foreign debt that we have solongand
so successfully augmented for yearn.
We must qualify our clever boys to
erect and run factories, saw-millh,
rolling-mills, machine-shops, tanner
ies, to open and work mines, im
prove and fashion implements, and
double the products of farma. if we
shall adopt this policy, aud then take*
such measures as will correct the
abuses growing out of our mammoth
railway privileges, we shall witnen*
a true development of national pros
perity, that will be as firm as the

The ttew Political Baatlln*.
Tho superstition of a certain class
of polititicians was never more
strikingly exhibited than in the
new party movement just culmi
nated tit Columbus, Ohio. Briefly
expressed, this is their theory "The
people will not tmist the Democratic
party, because they know it to be
unprogrossive and corrupt. Ru't
change its name and they will tnt*t
it, because they w ill then believfe ft
to be radical and honest." There
was an ass once which attempted
this same kind of policy. lie cover
ed himself with ft fion's skin, and
imagined that he was deceiving
overylsaly but his braying would
have betrayed him even if he had
been successful iti hiding bis ears.
The idea that men are gixsl or bad.
or that they will be thought so, ac
cording us tiieir names happen to be
pleasing or otnerwise, could origin
ate only with the dos|*«rute men
who are quick to seize any chance of
saving their politicll lives. The late
convention of "Allen County Dem
ocrats'' "discontinued Liberal Re
publicans" organised a party with
out a name and placed it substantially
upon the platlorm suggested by Mr.
Groesbeck. Thecmididatos are made
up of Democrats and Lilasral Itepuh*
nut leave it uutll it.If
