THE NORTHWEST INOFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND CO. NAPOLEON, O. DEC. 10, 1889 Band Fair at Kink Deccm- ESTOhio Democrats will undo the work of Hie last infamous Republican gerrymander. JST'Dare the Republican congress take the tax off whiskey nnd leave it on ankets ? S3?"The wife of Governor Campbell has been seriously iil during the past week, but the danger point has been passed and she is on the road to recovery. JSiTWo have received the Waverly Courier, It new paper started by J. W. Johnson, for merlyof the Jackson Herald. It is a stanch Democratic sheet, and looks healthy. jgfThe death of Jefferson Davis leaves but one survivor of President Pierce's Cabi netthe Hon. James Campbell, of Phila delphia, who was Postmaster-General. 5f"No doubt there will be a big crowd at the inauguration of Governor Campbell, Prominent Democrats from over the State will fill ' the capital. Henry county will send its quota. J3?"Poblic Schools as Affecting Crime and Vice" is the title-of an article, by Benjamin Eeece, to apper in "The PopularScience Monthly" for January. Mr. Reeco cites fig ures which show that crime does not decrease as illiteracy is diminished, and says that our achool system should be made more affective by the addition of moral teaching. IST'Should Calvin S. Brice be eleoted to the United States Senate, it will be the first time a Union soldier ever filled a seat in that body. James A. Garfield was the only other soldier ever elected to the Senate, but he never took the seat, as he was elected Presi dent of the United States before his term of office as Senator began. Newark Advocate. JgTThere is no question in our mind but that Marquis will be seated as Lieuteuant Governor. He was elected on the faoeof the returns as first sent to Columbus ,and then there has been enough Republican irregu larity to elect him by a handsome mnjotity. Theg. o.p. will howl, but the people have come to know when it howls the loudest it has been committing the most rascality. Marquis will be.seated. JSfOueof tho"d d meanest papers in Ohio," as old Ben. Wade would say, the Bowling Green Sentinel, had better attend to the affairs in its own county, before it slan ders its neighbors or extends advice. The people of Henry county are well able toman age their own affairs, and are managing ihem to the distrust of criminals, who have found ont that there is a law which cuts their career short. Can Wood county say as much? 1 President Harrison says the protective prinoiple mnst be maintained and "must be extended to the products of the farms." Well i Republican orators in this section have been wont to tell the farmers that they were already enjoying blessing of protection. The product of the farms are already "protected" nearly to death. It is a hollow mookery to ay that the farmer receives any benefis from it, however. Why, corn is "protected" by a tariff of about one half its selling price in Kansas bnt it sells for 20 cents a bushel there, nevertheless, and for 16 cents to 18 cents in Iowa. Protection doesn't protect. jgyThatthe Democratic Legislate re will be more fair in its division of the State for Congressional purposes than the. Republi cans have been, we have not the least doubt, bnt if ih xedistrioting of the State ware left to ns the Democrats should have fifteen con gressmen and the Bepnbliaana six just th opposite from what His now..- There was no fairness is the Republican; gttrymanaet in fact tat giO. p.tB Pair in notlring,wtati sthey have the Dower to have their own way, and it might be that by giving them a little of their ovm medicine it may have a good effect for the future. IT; ' -j ISTOow. Campbell will not allow bis nam to bs owl in connection with the Senatorial que rt ion as a candidate: That's HgntTb people have elected Mr. Campboli, UoMiroor and tnpy wish to see what kind of a ruler be makes. He will aoake a sneoesefbl one, and no mistake. v PafDid you ever see a woman of good sense, a good wife, who did not like a nice home, with everything beautiful around her? If the money every wage-worker is com pelled to pay oat of every dollar of his earn ings on account of our robbery tariff system could be expended on and la a home, in a few years every man who desired to do so, 03uld own a com for table little horns, and that, too. withoat the necessity of a building ' asBOoia- tions. Our abominable tariff laws have been the csuse bare mads the demand for so many building associations. Workman. t3TWhat the opposition to Mr. Brioe expect to gain by sneeringly insinuating that the Democratic press of the State is being sub sidized by Mr. Bnee by his paying a year's subscription for each and having the papers sent to him, ia beyond onr comprehension. We don't believe the Democratic press of the State is made of that kiDd of staff, and the mere insinuation that it is should be enongh to relegate the insinuator to the background, tSTIt is currently understood that Con gressman Boothman has offered the Napol on post-office to Capt. Randall, providing he will acoept it. This may surprise some Re publicans, bat it is given oat as a faot. There is no doubt but that Mr. Boothman is look ing around for a soldier to supplant Mr. Haag, but why he goes around D. M. Jones, an old crippled soldier, a good Republican and a pronounced applicant, is beyond our comprehension. What's the matter with Jones? That a soldier would succeed one- armed Sam Haag we have never doubted, es peoially when so many crippled Republican soldiers stand ready to accept the position. There is Frease, Raudall, Jones, Stockman Wagner, all soldiers and Republicans! If Captain Randall is to have the place, we con gratulate him. But, my, what a rumpus it will raise in the g. o. p. ranks if the Capt. walks off with the prize! gfThere has been some fear expressed that a Republican Congress would steal the Democratic party's thunder on the tariff question. One who has no snoh fear is the Chicago Herald. It says that "every time the Republican party pretends to revise and reduce the tariff it adds to its injustices. " The Herald goes on then and reasons as fol lows: What sort of tariff reform ia tn hn nul. ed rrom a party whose chief spokesmen in sist that any reduotion of duties that are iaia soieiy m oenair of capital is to come out of labor? What sort of tariff reform will that be which will be begun, continued, and ended with Agents and lobbyists of the pro tected mill owners ever at the elbows of the so called representatives of the people who are to reduce it? What sort of tariff reform may we expect from a party whioh owes its present ascendenoy to the enormous corrup tion fund which the monopolists whom thin tariff protects raised last year and used to de bauch voters? How mooh will a man reduce the tariff in the interest of consumers who starts out with the lying promise that this odious Bystem of taxation for the benefit of the rich and the spoliation of the poor is necessary to maintain wages? Tho Cronin Suspects. The long continued trial of the suspected Dr. Cronin murderers in Chicago, ended Friday and the case was given to the Jury. The Jury agreed upon their verdict and the punishment of the criminals on Sunday. Coughlin, Burke and O'Sullivan were con victed of murder and given life sentences in prison; Eunze was given three years impris onment, and Beggs was acquitted. A Great Power. More than thirty-two thousand public schools of the United States have each been supplied with a copy of Webster's Unabridged Dictionary. Think what that means. If there is an average of 60 scholars to each school, it means that constantly a million and a half of American youth have the privi lege of consulting and studying this great work in the course of their education. Who can estimate the power for intellectual stimula tion and development whioh is thus actively at work all the time ? The preeminence of the American people for general accuracy and facility in the use of the English Ian. guage is not likely to be lost. Well and truly has Noah Webster been called The Sohool master of the Republic. And Still They Come. Carry the news to Benny Harrison. Since his message to Congress, in which .he failed to come out in favor of free raw material, Mr. Bent, of Philadelphia, Pa., the president of the Pennsylvania Steel Company, has come out for unlimited free trade. Here is what he said a few days ago: "Give me free ore and I'll sell pig-iron in Liverpool and ondsteel rails to London. What American industries most want is free opportuuity and not legislative protection or restriction. Our company pays $750,000 per year tariff tax, which must either oome from the jwages of American workiagmen or from the profits of the American manufacturer." Such utter ances as these from Pennsylvania Republi can manufacturers is going to raise h 1 on the Wabash. Stand from under. Gbellton, Dec. 1G. Roads are very bad and tho prospects for lumbering this winter is poor. Mr. D. Thompson and wife, also Georgo Dnmbang and wife, of Morrow county, have been visiting friends and relatives in Grellton and vicinity for the past three weeks. Mrs. John Able, aod also Mrs. Rex have been quite sick for the past two or three weeks but are improving at this writing. The Grellton Dramatic Company will play the well known drama, "The Social glass or the Victims of the Bottle," at Walker's Hall Tuesday evening, Deo, 24th., for the benefit of the proposed M. E.

Nobthwmt: Perhnpe the readers of your columns would like to hear from the far West the new State of WBshinaton This Is the rainy season for this State it has a tendaney to discourage Kastern people when they come to this country in the wintertime. Washington State has a promising future Derore tier; tt has an almost inexhaustible supply of iron ore and coal which is very in accessible, and for the want of means it is not being gotten out, but present capital is coming in, railroads and factories are being uuut, nuu i Mum it win not ra long Derore she will be shipping goods East instead of receiving tnem from there, as she is at pres ent. This is a good place for men with some means and energy; good place for carpenters and plasterers, and for persons that have a trade of some kind, but it is a poor place for three classes of people those who have the rheumatism I would advise not to come out to wis country for if yon do you will be sure to get it worse, and the other two classes those without means and without a trade, for here it is "swim or drown," "fish or cut bait," work or starve. Seattle is fast building np again. To the present observer it looks as though the fire was a blessing. The business part of the city, whioh was old hacks or buildings, are being rebuilt with brick, and the streets that ran in a haphazard war ara now beintr BtntiKiiKuitHI. Seattle is possessing the sanguine expecta tion of her rapid building. Yon can judge by the amount of money that has been ex pended. There haa been paid out over five millions of dollars since the 6th of last June. It would have far exceeded that if they could have procured material to do with, hnt that i i j m was defloient. A company has been incorporated to build a temple to Thespus, which is to cost $250,000, and be the most magnificent opera house on the coast, and to becornnleted in timn fnr tha next theatrical season. It will have all the modern improvements This COUntv has vntori hnnri. in th anm ft $400,000. with which to hnilrl a nnnrt linnaa. This hes been a wanted improvement for some nine, as me county omoers have been crowd ed for room for years. The structure will have a tower 170 feet high, and will be fire- prooi mrougnout.

The Findlay correspondent of the Toledo Commercial a few days ago forwarded to that paper an account of .Isaao Davis' 'possum farm in Marion township. It is generally known says the Findlay Courier, that Col. Davis has about one hundred acres of timber inclosed in wire netting, and is devoting his time largely to the raising of opossums for the market. The animals breed fast, and although the business has been nnder way bnt a short time, Col. Davis has already a number of the animals ready for the mar ket. Yesterday the first order from abroad was received, as follows: Tiffin National Bank, ) Tiffin, n.. nn o isko r Isaao Davis, Findlay, O. Deab Sib: I noticed in Inst Ratni-dnv'a Toledo Commercial a communication from Findlay, stating you were experimenting in raising opossums for sale, and that you had a large number ready for market. If such is the fact, will you please send me per United States or Adams Express, a large, nice, fat, tenaer one, aressea. Bend bill by mail and I will remit promptly. I have never tasted one, and have quite a desire to experiment in that direction. Respectfully yours. J. W. Chambeblin, Cashier. Upon receipt of this, Col. Davis had one of the choicest animals in the lot dressed and shipped, with a bill of $2 for the same, and on Sunday Mr. Chamberlin will sit down to the finest meal he ever ate, with a juicy opos sum as the piece de resistancs.
