I turned over my banking in terest, into new bands, all men or mean and experience and well known citizens, who bava agreed among themselves to continue the business with the men a assistants who 0 faithfully united witb me Intheclerl el work of the bank Mr. P. O. Blair as cashier and Mr. Julius Groll as assistant cashier. In thus retiring from active bank' in? business. I feel that I would be recreant in my duty a a tsitizen and as a business man in whom the public has plaeed so much confidence for a long series of years, if I did not in some maimer express my thanks to friends and neighbors, and the pub lic generally, who have given me their aid and support during the thirteen years I have been in the banking business in their midst. It is with much regret that I am compelled to forego active business; but as my physical condition has re solved itself between health and life upon tbe one band by the giving up of active business cares, and sickness and a broken down system on the other bv continuing at the head of the bank, the former is chosen with an assurance that the remedy will ef fect a cure. This determination is also in strict conformity with the advice of the physicians who have had my case in hand for the past five months, in whose judgment, professional worth and skill 1 have explicit confidence. As I have already said, my con nection with the bank as proprietor ceased on Monday, when the business passed into the bauds of worthy successors Messrs. M. Donnelly, S. M. Heller, Mat. Reiser, Sr., and John C. Groll. who continue the business under the title of the Citi zens' Bank of Napoleon, O. These men need no introduction from me, as they are all well known citizens of financial ability, who have the confidence of the people of Henry c junty. I bespeak for them the same libei al patronage and courteous treat meQt which had been given me, and wish them unbounded suceess in their new relations. In retiring from my active business life I do thus publicly tender my sincere thanks for the confidence the citizens of Henry county have ever reposed in me, and for their liberal patronage through a long period of time. Our business relations have al ways been most pleasant, and I wish that we may continue to be friends, and that prosperity and" health may be the boon of all. Yours Truly, J. C. Saub.

The New York iKorfa, which op posed Bryan, last year, said a few days aso: The Republicans are in supreme control of the national gov ernment. They have had ample op portunity to try their hand, but pros perity has not come, nor do we see any signs of its coming, and we can not even see the shadow of it under the far horizon. Meanwhile the sil ver sentiment is steadily growing and strengthening and the figure of BrV' an as the Man of 1900 looms larger and larger. The Republican party's claim upon labor lor support is growing less oay by day, and in the future when Re publican orators attempt to convmoe working men by argument that the protective tariff system is a grand and glorious scheme by which labor is made light ana remunerative, tne workingmen are apt to repeat that beautiful musical retrain: It sounds to me, it sounds to me. It sounds just likea lie. It. may be so. I do not know, But it sounds just like a lie, -Columbus Record.

If the Uuited States when demonetized silver had reduced the size of the gold dollar one-half the ends of lustioe would nave Deen bud served, the rights of the debtor would have been respeoted and the full due of the creditor awarded him without a murmur. When Japan, a country of less civilization than this, changes from a cheaper to a dearer standard she has the honesty to make the new standard of value comport with the old standard of value. But the en lightened United States when changes its standard forces the dearer dollar of a single standard into the Slaoe of the cheaper dollar of the ouble standard. - And this they call honor, patriotism and sound finance!

The depression of business should be properly credited to the gold standard of values which for twenty- four years has been making the nioni- ed class richer and the cotumonpeople poorer. To it is due the idleness, poverty, discontent and crime which flourish in the land, and now, accord ing to John Wanauiaker, threatens a revolution as the most speedy means of relief.

Bryan explains: "If gold is de sired for hoarding, or for the purpose of forcing an issue of bonds, it will be withdrawn, whether there is a sur plus or a deficit, unless the secretary protects the government by exercis ing his option and redeeming in sil ver. When falling prices make ordi nary loans unsafe and ordinary in vestments unprofitable, the holders of idle capital are apt to advocate an issue of bonds for the purpose of se curing a safe investment, and when the desire for bonds becomes strong enough they can draw gold from the treasury by presenting greenbacks and treasury notes, and then use the gold to purchase the bonds issued." The Pension Question. We clip the following well ' written article upon the pension question from the Toledo Blade, a paper which everybody- knows to be Re publican through and through. A few years ago the Cleveland adminis tration was denounced as unfriendly to soldiers for advocating just what is now contained in the Blade article: The official estimate of tbe War Depart ment is that there are yet living 1.036,68 survivors of the civil war. The Pensiou barean has 760.000 of these on the pension roll, and 2I0.'J78 widows and miDor children, makings total of !)70,G78 pensioners, who receive a total of $I4U,UUU,uuu a year irom the government. There are. therefore, 335,000 surviving ex- soldiers of the Union armies who arereceiv. inz no pensions. At ths average rate per Denaioner now DaW. it would require SK),- 000,000 more per vear to pnt all ex soldiers on the peion rolls, maKinga total oauay ior ihis nnrooeeof S18U.UUU.UWJ ner yea.-. How lomr will the srovernment have to meet pension expenses? We have some little light on this point (rom trie laci mm, though the Revolutionary War closf d 114 years ago, there are still several widows of Revolutionary soldiers still receiving pen sions. The explanation of thU is. that yonug women married sued ex-so diers simply oe eauce they woold be pensionable when the litter died, and thus would secure a modest hvel'hood for life from the govern ment. Unworthy ns is this motive, it ia responsible for the f not that Bevolntionary widows aro vet receiving ueneions, and is no doubt true of the wites of some of the soldiers surviving of later wars. The harden of the pension payments of the government is an enormous one. We con gratulate ourselves that we do not need to maintain a great standing army, as do the military nations of Europe; yet we aro pay ing yearly in pensions about donble what it costs Great Britian every year to maintain her army. VVe now pay each year $1W,000, 000 more thauit oosts Germany to maintaiu her vast army, and $39,000,000 more than it oosts France 10 maintain her standing army of 000,000 men. This bnrden is cheerfully borne, in view of the servioes of the men to whom the money is paid, bnt it is a bnrden, neverthe less. It behooves every citizen to see th t there is no nnworthy one receiving any share of it. Commissioner Dudley a Re publican estimated, at the time he was in office, that 25 per cent, of those then on the pension roll were not entitled to the money they were receiving. No patriotic American object to the pittauoe a pensioner receives, if he is worthy of it by virtre of actual services rendered, but the nnworthy ones should be deprived of their pensions, for they are merely robbing the Treasury. Spain says it would tarnish its hon or to sell Cuba now. Still it looks very much as though it would be sell or have the "honor" of having the island taken away from the mother country Spain. W. G. Broerin, of Auglaize, and W. E. Decker, of Paulding, were nominated on Tuesday at the Sena torial convention in the 321 district. We congratulate Bro. Decker upon bis nomination and hope he may be elected by a rousing majority. If a majority of Senators carry out their announced intentions to add an anti-trust amendment to the tariff bill, it will hot necessarily hurt the trusts, even if the House accepted the amend ment; an administration friendly, to the trusts could make it practically harmless.

In the days of William Pitt in the British parliament the method of in direct taxation, ' such as is imposed by a tariff upon imports, was consid ered the safest and best way of get ting money from the people without their knowing that taxes came from their earnings. . . ' In a speech delivered in the British House of Commons Mr. Pitt said: "To levy a direct tax of 7 per cent is a dangerous experiment in a free country, and may excite revolt: but there is a method by which you may tax the last rag from "the back and the last bke from the mouth without causing a murmur against high taxes, anu tnat is to tax a great many articles of daily use and necessity so indirectly that the people will pay them andlnot know it. Their grumb ling will then be of hard times, but they will not know , that the hard times are caused by taxation.", .
