"The Republican party was founded, in 1864.

largest majority of any party in the history

Sinci the close of the war of 1812 the gov
ernment has paid pensions to 44,872 widows.
During the year just past, pensions to the
amonnt of $2,263,239 have been paid to the
widows, whioh shows an average of thirty
surviving widows to one surviving soldier.
Of the Revolutionary war 3,000 widows still
draw pensions.
Henby Wattkbson prediots "as complete a
downfall for the Republican party in 1892 as
the Whig party met in 1862, when it carried
only four States." Senator Hoar himself is
credited with the remark that the action of
the Senate in laying aside the force bill
"means the death of the Republican party."
He is not likely to stand by that however.

These are about 2,600 pensioners at the
Dayton National Home, who reoeive pensions
ranging from $2 to $72 per month. There are
thirty-six there who are totally blind and two
who have lost both legs. There are any
number with but one arm or leg. Last
year the number of pensioners at that insti
tution was 2,123. The amount paid to them
was $251,665, and to there families $117,606.
The number of inmates has increased eaoh
year since the foundation of the Home,
twenty-three years ago, until at present there
is a total of 5,594 inmates, composing, as it

Should the writer take an inventory of his

to be somewhat at variance with the above.
During Ben Lightning Rod Franklin's time
the press was a true star of Bethleham in
leading the masses into the right channel,
while manipulators of said star were looked
upon with a tender and loving eye. But
since Benjamin's existenoe, the times have
steadily degenerated in this respect The
star still has its attractive features, but tbe
affinity existing is not for encomiums, least
wise it is not flatteringly suooessful in draw

"moulder of publio opinion" attract a stuffed

year, in fair and stormy weather, this un

EX-CLERKJ. DONOVAN,
RETIRES FROM Pt'BLIC SERTICK
AFTER FOUR TEARS OF
CREDITABLE WORK.
D. C. Browa la Swora la as Clerk of
Hear Coaoty Court, While
Jadgc Donnelly Bnpplante Himself
oa tbe Probate Bench.
Monday another change took place in the
excellent corps of officials of Henry oounty.
James Donovan, county clerk for four years
past, turned the office over to D. C. Brown, a
worthy sooeesaor. Judge M. Donnelly took
the oath of office for a well merited second
term as Probate Judge.
James Donovan during bis acquaintance
with the people of Henry county as an offi
cial, has gained a most enviable reputation
among all classes not only as a strict ob
server of the duties given him to perform by
a confiding people, but as one with whom it
has been pleasant for all to transact business.
An official, and especially a county official, is
always in the balance and envious eyes riv
eted on the scale pans eager to see on which
side they may topple. "Jim" has been
weighed in this delicate balance and even his
political opponents will say "he has not been
found wanting." ,
He is a native of Henry county, born in
Washington township, July 7th, 1855, near
the Maumee. He attended and taught coun
try school until 18 years of age, when he at
tended Normal college at Lebanon, Ohio, 4
years, taking special branches fitting himself
for the study of law. Commencing the study
of his chosen profession in "78, he was ad
mitted to the bar two years later. The year
following he practiced law in Lebanon and
Hartsville, Mo., but returned to Napoleon in
'81. He was elected Justice of the Peace in
'82, when he was called to. the office he has
just vacated. He is a first class all-around
lawyer and it is his intention to resume the
practice of his profession, which we predict
will be attended with his customary success.
For the present he will be-found in R. W.
Cahill's offioe, that gentleman having depart
ed for an extended trip in the west leav
ing his business in Mr. Donovan's care.
D. C. BROWN,
the present incumbent is, comparatively
speaking, a new man in Henry county poli
tics, as he has never held an office before.
He is a young man in his 36th year, born on
March 8th, 1855, in Lenewee, Clayton Coun
ty, Mich. He gained a practioal breadth of
learning at tbe Adrian, Michigan, high school,
graduating in 1872; he entered the service of
the Wabash Railway but left it a year later to
accept a position in Liberty Center as clerk
in a dry goods store. He was married on
April 11th, '81 to Miss Mattie Woodward,
daughter of Ward Woodward, of Liberty
Center. In 1886 he moved to Napoleon and
entered the employ of D. & J. Wilson where
he has since remained.
His entrance into- the political arena of
last campaign as candidate for dork was not
entirely unlooked for, as he had been solici
ted much before by prominent politicians,
ho recognized in him one nossessimr all the
characteristics of a fighter, who in the com
mon vernacular, goes in for all there is in it
and consequently to win.
The contest for the nomination was a
spirited and memorable one, all the candi
dates being men of influence and leaders in
politics. Brown was nominated on the 5th
ballot amid much enthusiasm. Although
bis election was assured, he doffed his coat
ind labored faithfully for the success of the
whole ticket. The votes canvassed gave Mr.
Brown a majority of 1601 over his opponent,
the lareest in the county. It is with uni
versal satisfaction that the people of Henry
oounty give this important trust into the
bands of one who is in every way qualined to
keep the office up to the excellent standard it
has always had.
The office of Probate Judge will be filled
the next three years by
JUDGE MICHAEL DONNELLY,
who was tendered a second term by Henry
oounty voters. They are well pleased with
the record he has made during his first term
and that he will continue in the line of aotion
already traveled, is all that can be asked or
cared for. The offioe he holda is by far the
most important in the county, requiring a
mind well versed in legal lore, besides that
culmination of the mind, developedjudg
ment This the Judge has.
In the convention he had no opposition and
carried the oounty by a majorityof 1235 at
tbe election. The Judge was born in this
oounty, Washington township, Aug. 18, 1856,
He studied law under Hon. Justin Tyler and
was admitted to the bar in Dec. 1880, Let

Koaa Webster may well shift for an easy
position in bis narrow bed and congratulate
himself that bis great work was conceived
and finished prior to tliis half of tbe century.
Even the colossal intellect that compiled tbe
"Unabridged" would prove inadequate in
keeping pace with the newly coined words
that are angloeized weekly and daily. We
have a great pall on tbe deed languages, but
it is in distorting common words into differ
ent meaning where Noah Webster's auooee
sors are kept busy in noting and thereby
furnishing the Amerioan people with a com
plete dictionary of their language as con
structed by themselves and spoken by them
selves. This addition to onr language first appears
as "slang," but very soon drops that in
elegant name and finds it's way into the
works of popular authors and utilized by the
tongues of prominent statesmen. Take our
oldest statesman and let him fail to season
his carefully prepared discourse with these
new acquisitions and, whoever he may be,
whatever reputation he may possess, bia ef
fort falls rather fiat to the majority of his
hearers and the plaudits of the majority is
what we strive after.
It was my good fortune to hear John
Sherman "tell the people abot it," several
times, and at each time, it was while, in
making himself clear, he incorporated
Amerioan slang, that the audience was most
pleased, and the dailies next morning dwelled
upon more at length.
Is or is not this butchery of the English
language conducive to the edification of our
people? What effect will it have eventually
on the generations to oome? "Large oaks
from little acorns grow," and a little atten
tion to the style of young America's talk will
lay bare the fact that slang is essential to
properly express his ideas. He who uses it
not is ostracised from the society of his
fellows and dubbed a "book worm," "stick,"
etc. We are practical people to be sure, but
this is too much of a good thing.
' Her sighs were not for him; to her he was
Even as a brother but no more;t'was much,
For brotherless she was, save the name
Her infant friendship had bestowed on

la the moan by which vanished suitors have
been wont to find tangible expression of
their feelings, for years past. But not so
with the modern young man. Heacoepts the
situation with a gulp and rings this new
sister in on a sister's duty darning socks,
mending clothes, underwear, etc. It is the
stride of a seven-league boot towards re
formation. '
"Do you see thatsprightly lady over there?"
asked an acquaintance yesterday, pointing to
a seemingly middle-aged lady making her
way daintily across the muddy crossing.! 33
As there is no cataract building its opaque
mist over my eyes, I readily saw the lady in
question, and asked if any peculiarity existed
there not usually attendant to the fair sex.
"Not exactly a peculiarity," he replied,
"that is, outside of the feminine gender, for
they all possess the proclivity to a certain ex
tent Did you ever hear of one Ponce De
Leon, who migrated, westward several hun
dred years baok in searoh of a fountain, the
quaffing of whose waters would restore youth
perpetually? Well you know his efforts in
this line were futile, and that he took the
coarse of all things mortal, aud.died a much
disappointed seeker of the unattainable.
That lady you see tripping gayly in that
meat market has found what old DeLeon
could not. I know positively that she has seen
sixty-three happy summers, yet she is steadi
ly growing younger. ,Not in looks, remem
ber,but in Father Time's possessions, reckon
ed by years and months. Five years ago she
gave her age as 40, and it has dropped off one
each year until now she is quoted I at 35.
Forsooth I expect, if she lives long -enough ,
she will blossom forth in short dresses."
My friend in commenting on such plati
tudes had not yet realized that a woman's age
was like a large river having its source in the
mountains which, when it flows the length of
its course to the sea, "abouts face" and as
cends to the source.
And it is well known that these petrified
youthful people harbor a hobby of referring
to others, with an affected unconsciousness, j
as "elderly people", when perchance they are
equally as old and in many cases have
attended the christening of said "elderly
people" in question. "Oh there goes Mr.
and Mrs. ," they say, "and who would
think, not knowing them, that they are
really as old as they are! Didn't know they
were very old? Why every body knows that
Mr. and Mrs. are quite elderly, but
they hold their youth very well' etc. Such
twaddle is a mild way of bespattering a neigh
bor with mud in order to divert attention
from our own imagined sore points. Age is
no disgrace, even if possessed, and it is the
acme of impoliteness to refer to such slight
ingly, and hypocrisy personified to be ever
on the alert to slip baok several cogs in the
wheel of time. If age is disgraceful the gate
leading to the suioidal route is always
open.
A disease that is fast becoming epidemio
is, "not knowing when they have enough."
I have known men to accumulate year after
year their cool five thousand. Yet they are
still mad about it. They meet dozens of
acquaintances at every turn, but with a don
ble jointed horse frown surmounting their
profit and loss brow, they speak not, bnt
pursue the even tenor or bass of their way
absorbed in scheming a new way to add a
little more to the heap. It is clearly a dis
ease similar to Bright's, in that, it will be
conquered only when the terrestrial clothes
are shed.
Rev. Donahey spoke Sunday evening on
the relative position taken by both sexes' in
regard to church matters. By sacred history
be showed how man was chosen to perform
the admonitions of Divine Power; by profane
history he proved that the greatest men the
world has known were not ashamed to nse
their talents in defense of religion. Yet
there is an under-current of false shame
pulling a major1 portion of the masculine
gender from vKhat they know to be right.
This feeling of infidelity,, for it is nothing
else, results in placing the bulk of religious,
duties on the mother, wife and daughter,

The Other Side of the Salary Sys
tem. The following opinion concerning the re
sults of tbe salary system la by Senator
Nichols, of Clermont county. He says:
"I simply wantrd to express my doubts as
to the right or the relief of tax-payers of
converting feed officers in salaried officers
snd thus compelling tax-payers to assume
tbe burden of paying four more officers
(clerks) than they now do. In my judgment
it will do one of two things, either of which
is wrong, vis: that of imposing an increased
obligation upon tax-payers if the income of
the office is insufficient to meet the outlay:
or, if that income is more than enough and
the surplus is turned into the county treas
ury to be applied as money realized from
taxation, it is wrong and unfair to those do
ing business in these offices for the reason
thai they are thereby mads to pay as far as
it goes, double, treble or quadruple taxation
in proportion to the number of offices in
which they do business, thus makinir these
offices sources of revenue to the State and the
people who do business in tbem pay tribute
therefore.
"For examDle. a man in Franklin eonnt
dies. The law says his estate must go throngs
Probate court By this bill the fees which
are said to be more than double what they
should be and yet are not reduced a penny by
this bill, are turned into tbe publio treasury
and only one-half thereof or less are applied
to the expenses of the offioe, and the other
one-half which rightfully belongs to the wid-1
ow and orphans, is applied to the payment of
some other person's taxes, thus making dead
men's estates pay living men's taxes, which
is not only wrontr bnt contrary to the spirit
and genius of our government, and the same
thing can be substantially said of sheriff,
clerk and recorder, neither of whioh, except
a very small part is paid by the tax-payers,
out irom tne revenues of the omoes.
"I don't believe a single man, who is very
properly asking for a reduction of fees,
wants it done in this way, it he understands
the result of it. More than that, if you pay
salaries in the omoes, the collection of fees
will be woefully neglected, or made elec
tioneering schemes until in a very short time,
instead of each office looking after its own
collections, it will be necessary to create the
new offioe of collector of fees."
How They Hang On t
Tbe National Democrat says: The Repub
lican party feels the ground slipping out from
under its feet and it is desperate. The peo
ple have repudiated it and it is determined
to hold on to power by main force. In New
Hampshire the Legislature elected by Jewett,
the clerk elected by the last house for this
express purpose, has discredited the autocrat
who made it by unanimously seating 15
members whom. Jewett did not put on his
list In Connecticut the Republicans played
with loaded dice, and having had extraordi
nary luck to lose, they have grabbed the dice
and announoed that they will place them on
the table right end up at their convenience.
Mr, Morris had a prima facie majority over
all, and an unquestionable plurality over Mr.
Merwin of more than 3,000 and yet tbe Re
publican branoh of the Legislature refused
to declare him elected until after the usual
time for installing the governor had expired,
and now Gov. Bulkely, whose term has ex
pired and who wasn't anybod'ys candidate for
governor, announces that he will keep his
office for the next two years. In NebraskaM
the Republican governor, whose term had ex
pired assumed the right to pass on his suc
cessor's eligibility, and undertook to keep
the office by force. Having been ejected he
took to his bed and has been said to be de
lirious. He lost, first his head, then his of
fioe and last his mind. But life itself is
nothing to a Republican politician after be
has been dragged away from an office. Pri
vate life is often fatal to them, and the only
wonder is that more of them don't die of
it.
A Strong Speech,
It is not fashionable just now to say any
thing kind of the Hon. John James Ingalla.
He has been tripped up, and the world has
little use for a man that is down.
And yet it was a manly speech that he made
in the United States Senate day before yes
terday. There is no man who intelligently
reads the constitution of his country cer
tainty no Democrat that can fail to applaud
his clear-cut utterance.
He was opposed to the cloture and the Force
bill, and explained the reasons of his oppo
sition. The former was an outrage upon
parliamentary law, S"1 the latter was cum
brous and partisan. The common sense of
the country antagonized them. It was the
folly of pushing them that bad led the Re
publican managers to their overwhelming
defeat of last November, and yet they abused
those who had seen the light better than they.
Upon this point he spoke with both eloquence
and truth. Here is a passage from the con
densed Associated Frees report, written in
the oratioobliqna, which should ring round
the world:
These leaders, who had conducted the most
powerful political organization known in
American history to tbe most stuDenduous
and overwhelming disaster received in its
annals, might well pardon those who were
disposed to doubt tbe infallibility of their
judgment. If they were wise they wonld be
less proscnptivo sua more tolerant of differ
ences of opinion among their associates on
questions of opinion on whioh differences
might be allowed, especially among those
whose devotion to human liberty had never
been questioned and whose constancy and
fortitude had been exposed to tests as severe
at least as any whioh they had ever known.
That is a powerful ntteranoe, and Mr. In
galls can congratulate himself that he is not
half so dead as are both the cloture and tbe
Force bill. .Enquirer.
New York's Ballot System.
The Pittsburgh Poet declares that,"with the
Australian system added we believe the state
of New York has the most perfect election
system of any state in the Union. It provides
for personal registration, with election
boards equally divided between parties; the
wealthiest man or highest official in the state
cannot vote unless he personally registers,
and his vote cannot be accepted or rejected
unless with the consent of a non-partisan
board, made responsible on heavy penalties
for abuse of authority. And then, after the
votes are counted, the result publicly de
clared, and the returns made out by this
equally divided non-partisan board, the bal
lots must be destroyed. Experience" has
shown that in many instauces ballot-boxes
have been tampered with after the count,
with a view to future oontests. The des
truction of the ballot bars this, and speedilly
secures ascertained results with financial
certainty, whioh is a very important consid
