The Democrat. ESTABLISHED A. D. 1833. A. MCGREGOR, Editor. The Indiana House has passed a bill Teducing the rate of interest from eight to six per cent. Last week England bad a great snow storm, railway trains were stopped and eeriouB times were bad. "Mr. Hayes did not irject civil service reform into bis appointment of a Cincin nati Collector. It is only found in bis messages. Labt week, Friday, there was a great etorm raging over the Mediterranean sea, and Spain has been suffering from extraordinary floods. Thb members of the Ohio General Assembly adjourned last Friday till Tuesday of this week. Of course the worn out members need rest. Somb Republican organs claim that "the funding bill as it passed the House is a blow at National banks. How is it the Greenbackers voted with the Repub' licans against the bill? John Sherman still has a grip on the machine in Ohio. He went through last week booming. His grip at Chicago slipped; but since then he spit in bis bands and is all right in Ohio. The House last week passed the Na val Appropriation bill exactly as report ed. The bill appropriates $14,461,000,an increase of $55,000 over the appropria tion for the present year. 1 , 'Secretary Sher nan in his speech to the Leg!slature at Columbus last week, thanking them for eleetirg him to the Senate to succeed Senator Tburman.paid a high compliment to the character and abilities of Mr. Tburman. When Gov. Cornell said Gen. Grant is more in the hearts of his countrymen than was ever Gen. Washington, he set himself up as a newspaper targe. Cleve. Leader. Say rather "he set himself up ai a'r fool, or a knave, or botb. The papers say Sawyer, recently elect d U. S. Senator from Wisconsin, is the possessor of a colossal fortune. Only rich men can now get to the U. S. Sen ate from Northern States. Merit and ability have little to do in the selection of Senators. Thb Canton correspondent of the Ak ron Advance complains that we did not copy more of his article on the 329ers who wore capes. We copied all that had reference to the matter and did not "mu tilate." Hence it was fair and honest. We copy what we want; not what others wish. Wb hear of a Bucceseful professional officeholder, who is a member of all se cret societies hereabouts, who is now looking ahead for a continuance in office, and is trying to join the nautical socie ties and other clubs of the city. Busi ness is business. Thb telegraph consolidation is not likely to find such smooth sailing as was expected. Proceedings were begun last week in New York courts to prevent Its consummation, and the State Assembly also adopted a resolution calling for en investigation of the matter. Captain Henry Sbreve, who invented a snag-boat in 1829, which he used in clearing the Mississippi and Red rivers of snags, presented a bill to Congress in 1834 for compensation. Last week it was paid. It amounted to $50,000, and baa been forty-seven years before Con gress. It might be mentioned in this c onnection that Capt Shreve died in 185U It looks as if Blaine would be Secre tary of State, and Allison of the Treas urv, and the Interior and FostofEce De part m en ts be given to anti-Third Term' ers. Garfield may have a row on his bands at the outset of his administration with Conkllcg. The N. Y. Herald, very friendly to Cockling these days, is per suading Garfield he had better drop Blaine and coddle the N. Y. Senator. There was an unusual break in tele' graphic communication Friday, all east em points being cut off by the storm ex cept via Baltimore. New York was iso lated from the West, and dispatches were sent . thence by special messengers to Philadelphia, ard wired to their destina tion via Baltimore. Many interior lines were down, and communication only ob tained by round abont circuits. CENTRALIZED POWER. We have often referred to the tenden cy, under Republican rule,' to the cen tralization of power, and with this to the display of royalty in all its gaudy rottenness. Tbe attempt to establish Napoleonic Imperialism at Washington cropped out during Grant's first term, with Babcock, "Boss" Shephird and others as leading ornaments At Grant's second inaugura tion there was quite a display of troops; and the West Point Cadets were present for the first time in history. Judging by what we see announced, it would seem that Gen. Garfield's inaugu ration is to be a grand military affair; a large detachment of U. S. troops being already ordered to Washington, irom many of the states, too, are invited soci eties and volunteer soldiers. It would seem that a clique of office holders Bud office sectors are at the head of the movement, and of course they expect to be prominent and profit thereby. A grand inauguration ball will be given, and decorations and parades will be In order, involving heavy ex pense. It is said the main expense will be paid by taxing tbe clerks in iba de partments. These were the victims of three forced levies during the late cam palgn. These poor victims dare not re' fuse to pay lest they lose their places. In 1801 Thomas Jefferson had no such diBplay. He rode to Washington on horseback unattended; took the cath of office as President, and after that went to the Executive mantion by himself. This plainness and simplicity does not suit the present so-called Republican party. This party is building up an ar istocracy of wealth, and want a large standing army, with display, show and expense. It all reminds us of Louis Na poleon's rotten empire. Three weeks of the Ohio General As sembly have passed and little or nothing been done. It is to be hoped this will not continue, and that they will soon proceed to business in earnest. ' The Lo cal Option question seems to be troubling them. It is claimed that a year ago many of the members promised the tern perance people that this session, being their final session, they would paBS Lo cal Option. This promise may have been made merely to bridge over the Presi dential election'. If so, it is a chicken that will come home to roost. An ex change says: "The Republican Legislature proposes to put off the local option people with a constitutional amendment, saying that the Legislature may pats a local option law. This is a cowardly subterfuge only worthy of the sneaking, hypocritical I ar ty that the Republican party has confes sedly become. The Legislature has the power to pass the law now if it will, and the Republican party has declared itself in favor of such a law. Why cot pass it? Why dodge behind a Constitutional amendment, which cannot be adopted, and if it were, would leave the question just where it is now? Why do the Re publican organs keep silence on the ques tion? Why do they refrain from allud ing to it? The party has made a distinct promise it would pass this law when it could. Why not pass it now? Is it afraid? Ia the party of "great moral ideas" too cowardly to make good its promiset?" In the California State Senate last week concurrent resolutions were report, ed which protest against the ratification of the Dew Cuineae treaties. The first resolution, by Senator Glasscock, declar ed there was no method to determine who were laborers from China and who were visitors, and also held that the treaty should have been couched in lan guage that would have forever settled the matter. Tbe second resolution, by Senator Davis, alluded to the clause al lowing the Chinese the Bame privileges in the United States as the most favored of any other nation, thus conferring upon them the right of natural'zation. The resolutions were debated during the day the contest being almost strictly a parti san one, the Republicans being against and the Democrats in favor of the adop tion of the resolutions. Finally the en tire matter was laid on the table by a vote of 20 to 17. Wb learn that Probate Judge Helden- brand is likely to have serious opposi tion to his nomination as Probate Judge for the fourth consecutive term. Some of the younger Republicans are becom ing tired of that same old crafty coon; and think there are other men in the nurtw wnrthv of nnnnidnrAtinn. Thsv are asking themselves why and where fore shall tbe Republican party of Stark county be run for the benefit of one man? Why keep one family in the best county offices forever? Why not try something else for a change? There are younger Republicans who are considering these matters, and they may take1 shape and break the wires that run from the Probate office, and that are pulled so artfully. Noutverroru. Thb Fep. in old Know Nothing days did not believe in white men's equality; but the old thing baa progressed so far as to believe black is white, and that there 1b perfect equality of race in the human familv. Its motto used to be "Put none but Americans on guard" that is, the Jit p. wanted no Germans or Irish in the mix. Tom and the leaders used to "damn the Dutch and Irish'and did not care much about the niggers. But since Tom's experience South as quartermaster he is a great admirer of the colored population. He don't much admire tbe Irish and Dutch, though.eveq yet. Tom is a progressive animal. Thanks to Dr. J. Strong, superintend ent of ti e Cleveland Acylum for the in sane, for a pamphlet copy of the twenty-sixth annual report of that insti tution. Dr. Strong's report to the True tees is full and elaborate. He ably die cusaes various points in the treatment of the insane, comparing our treatment with that in other countries. From tbe extracts given as to the treatment of the insane in Belgium and Scotland, we judge that the cost in this country is much greater. SENATOR HARTSHORN Distinguished hlmaelf last winter by bulling through the Legislature a bill to divide Washington township into two election precincts, when a large majority of the people of that towrehip, irrespec tive of party, were opposed to the meas ure. There was no Buflioient reasou for any division of Washington township. The vote never exceeds much over four hun dred in the entire township and no large stream of water divides the township. Again, the people of the township did not ask for two precincts, but a majority remonstrated agaiost tbe bill. This, however, made no difference with the bullhead Senator from Curroll and 8:ark. The will of the people was nothing to him, when their will antagon'zd his wish, and that of Mount Union College, with its famous stuffed gorilla. Well, this UK Union gorilla has broke out in a ntw place. He wants to do something for certain newspapers, daily and weekly, as will be seen by the fol lowing bill: Sixty fourth General Aaembly, adjourned tettion. Amended S.B. No. 17, Mr. Ilarti horn A Bill to amend section five thouiand three hundred and ninety three (5393) of the re viied italutet of Ohio, providing for the tale of lands and tenements token in exe cution. Sec. 1. Be it enacted by the General At sembly of the State of Ohio: That section five thousand three hundred and ninety three of the revised statutes of Ohio, in force Jan. 1, 1880, be so amended as to read as follows: Sec. 5393. Lands and tenements taken in execution shall not be sold until the officer cause to be given public notice of the time and place of sale, for at least hirty days before the day of sale, by ad vertisement in a newspaper printed and of general circulation in the county and town or township where the lands and tene ments are situate, and in case there is no newspaper printed and of general circulation in the county and town m township where said lands and tenements are located, tlien in a newspaper printed and of general circulation in tlie county, and by putting up an adver lisement of the same in five public places in the town or township, where said lands and tenements are joi sale; or if no newspaper is printed in the county, in a newspaper of general circulation therein, and by putting up an advertisement of the same upon the court house door, and in five other public places in the county, two of which shall be in the township where the lands and tenements are situate. When the advertisement is made in a newspaper published weekly, it shall be sufficient to insert it in five consecutive numbers thereof; but if thtre is publish ed both a daily and weekly edition of the newspaper selected for such adver tisement, and the circulation of tie dai ly in tbe county exceeds that of the weekly, or if tbe lands and tenements taken in execution are situate in any city of this state, and there is published both a daily and weekly edition of the newspapers selected for such advertise ment, and the circulation of the daily in such city exceeds that of the weekly, it shall be sufficient to publish the adver tisement in the daily once a week far five consecutive weeks before the day of sale, each insertion to be on the same day of the week; but the cost of such publication In a daily newspaper shall not exceed ihe cost of publishing the same in a weekly newBpaper.and all sales marie without such advertisement shall be set aside, on motion, by the court, to which the execution is returnable. Sec. 2. That eertion Ave thousand three hundred and ninety-three of the revised statutes aforesaid be and the same is hereby repealed. Sec. 3. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its passage. In the foreign carrying trade of the United States there are employed 5,380 sailing craft, of which 1,328, or only about one-quarter, belong to citizens of this ctuatry. In cur foreign carrying trade are employed 590 (team vessels, of which our citizens own 44, while sub jects of Great Britain own 444. These statistics come down to last August, and are contemporaneous with the census report that tells us we are a great nation of 50,152,866 souls. Last year we paid over a hundred millions of dollars to for eign ship owners for the transportation of American produce and merchandise. THsRepublican Legislature of Indiara bas just bad some trying experience with the female sex. It teems for the office of State Librarian there were only 21 female applicants, embracing sis ters, cousins and aunts. It took thirteen ballots in caucus to decide that Mrs. Emma Ames Windsor was tbe lucky w- man. According to all accounts, "the state never before witnessed such an ex asperating, disgusting scramble for a pet ty office," many of the ambitious women working with a will, and giving evidence of an amount of brass astonishing to the rfflicted male members. Republicans are uneasy that the Cen tral Insane Asylum has got Dr. Firestone at its head as superintendent, he being a Democrat. There is no disputing the Doctor's high qualities, but that makes no difference, so long as be is not a Re publican. The fact is, if the Republican leaders were intent on doing their duty to the taxpayers if the state, they would attend to the Penitentiary, where incom petency and demoralization rejgn su preme. Tbe Orphans' Home at Xenia has become tbe seat of filthy scandals, aad reformation there is badly needed. Thb Republicans of Wayne county, not to be outdone by tbe Democrats, pro claim that they will celebrate on tbe 22d of February, Washington's birthday an' niversary, by a banquet, speeches, dan cine. &o. Grant, Hayes, or some such specimen would be a more suitable faint for Republicans to honor. In fact they might honor both, Grant they could honor in whisky, and Hayes with tern perance epg-nopg, frozen. Notwithstanding Gai field's election Sheriff sales continue, and Jay Gould predict the greatest financial catastro phe the world ever saw, if credit contin ues to expand. Predictions won't stop single operation In business, because no body believes in panics until they arrive: and wouldn't then if they could help Again the Democratic papers have raised the cry that the country .canno; stand such prosperity, and that a panio is bound to follow. Tbere is no philosophy tht teaches adversity shall follow pros perity. Adversity follows waste, but prosperity does not necessarily engender waste. Anything for a cry. When one subject 1b worn out another is taken up. Tbe Democrats rnly write to condemn, and to fit a certain ignorant chant el. Watterson, of the Courier Journal, is yet hammering away at tbe tariff question. He and hie party had plenty of time to discuss this point when it could have been made an issue, but, fearing to air it in the light of day, they reserve it as a basis for growlin-. Cfcw leader. The evil prophets are leading Repub licans, Mr. Leader, such men as Jay Gould, proprietor ol the N. Y. Iribune; Secretary of the Treasury John Sher mip, and other leaders of the Republi can party. The Leader seems to have forgotten the panio of 1873, and the de pression and hard times that followed. As for the tariff question, it is quite proper to hammer at it until it is prop erly understood. The tariff is a tax lev ied by the government upon imports to raise revenue. Our government bas a right to tax fjr "revenue only." This right of taxation is limited for the pur pose of revenue, Will the Leader claim that our government has the right to tax the people in order to put money into the pockets of a few individuals? The Constitution confers the power on Con gress, "to lay and collect taxes, du'ies, imposts and excises to pay the debts and provide for the general welfare." This gives no power to rob Peter to benefit Paul, and call it "protection." The bill to refund Borne $650,000 of 5 and 6 per cent bonds falling due this year, passed the Iliuse on Wednesday, last week, by a vote of 135 ayes to 125 nays. The clause fixing tbe rate of in terest at 3 per cent instead of 3 was agreed to, ayes 149 to 104 nays. Both these votes were party votes, the Demo crats Voting for the bill and the lower rate of interest, and the Republicans against. Some of the Greenbackers uni ted with the Republicans on the final vote against the bill. The bill as it goes to tbe Senate provides: 1. For the issue of $400,000,000 3 per cent, five-ten bonds, and $300,000,000 cer tificates in denominations of $10, $20 and $50, bearing S per cent interest, redeem able in one and payable in ten years. 2. The Secretary of the Treasury, at his discretion, is authorized to use $50- 000.000 of gold and silver coin in the Treasury, in the redemption of the five and six per cent bonds falling due. 3. Tbe expenses of issuing the bonds and certificates are limited to one-fourth of one per cent. 4. After May 1, the 3 per cent bonds will be tbe only bonds receivable as se curity for National bank circulation, or as security for public deposits In Na tional banks. It is tbe general opinion that the Sen ate will either increase the rate of inter est to three and a half per cent, or make the bonds long bonds; that is, payable in twenty years. DEATH OF H. B. KELLEY. The Ohio Editorial excursionists, who arrived at Washington city, Saturday, met with a Bad circumstance, which has cast a feeling of gloom over tbe entire party. H. B. Ke ley of the Allen Coun ty Democrat, published at Lima, died at tbe Imperial hotel of apoplexy at four o'clock Saturday afternoon. His re mains were embalmed and sent to his friends on Tuesday. Mr. Kelley was about sixty years of age, and bas been in bad health for some time. His phy sicians had frequently warned him dur- ng the past year against any nnuBual mental or physical exertion. He enjoy ed good health on the trip, however, until Saturday afternoon, when he ex pired within half an hour after the fatal attack. Intelligence was communicated by telegraph to his friends. a it. Thb Egyptian obelisk was placed in position in Central Pork.N. Y., Satur day, at noon, in the presence of over en thousand spectators. The work of erecting the column and placing it per manently upon its pedestal was accom plished without accident, in less than half an hour. Less than five minutes were occupied in swinging the huge mass, weighing two hundred and twenty tons, from a horizontal to a vertical po eition, and the Bpeedy accomplishment of tbe feat was greeted with enthusiastic applause by the vast assemblage. Lieu tenant Commander Gorringe is again entitled to congratulations for this final display of his engineering skill, in so speedily and successfully elevating the monolith to its place. As the Annie P. Silver was on her way up the Mississ'ppi river near New Mad rid, Saturday, a young man wbo had gone insane through sickness, got the idea he was being carried by his landing place, He pulled a pistol and shot at the texas tender, then rushing forward to the wheel bouse, shot and instantly killed Daniel Blake, second clerk of the Silver, and attempted to shoot Mark Burnham the pilot. Burnham grappled with him however, and with the aid of the passen gers be was secured. His hands were beaten to a jelly before he would give up his pistol. Blake was a cousin of Mr. Jthn F' Blake of our city. Captain Eads's ship railway scheme received a backset in tbe House Com mittee on tbe Inter Oceanic Canal, Mon day. Tbe report of tbe Bub-committee in favor of tbe project, was by a majority of one referred back, with instructions to strike out the clause guaranteeing interest on the bonds of tbe company. by tbe Government. Without such guarantee it would be impossible to tha Vinnrla an that it is a virtual defeat. in tbe committee, unless tbe members rau be induced to reconsider tneir action. Thb friends of Local Option are very earnest in this state. They demand cognition and action on the part of Legislature. Promises made are thing, but promisee kopt are quite diner eat.

JVe ave tucugut It would Re a gooa ining to obtain a good portrait of President Hayes while h s was yet President. With this vittw we nrorjose a subscriD- tion among the alumni, not to exceed in any case $10, so that the invitation to lm to sit tor bis picture may come irorn large number of his fellow graduates.

Gentlemen I have received your communication of the 27th, inviting me to join in subscription to procure a por trait of Mr. Rutherford B. Hayes to put in the Memorial Hall of Harvard Uni- versity at Cambridge, along with the portraits of John Adams and John Q lin cy Adams, Presidents of the United States, and graduates of the University. I decline to join in such a subscription I am not willing to do anything that may be designed or construed as a compli ment to Mr. Hayes, or that may recog nize his tenure of the executive office at Washington as anything other than an event of dishonor, He was net chosen President. He was defeated in the elec tion; and then a band of conspirators, Mr. Hayes himself conspiring and con niving with them, setting aside the Con stitution and the law, and making use of forgery, perjury and false counting, se cured for him possession of the Presi dency to which another man had been elected; and wnen be got possession ot it, bis most sedulous care was to repay witb cilices and emoluments tnose autn ors, managers and agents of the conspir acy to wuom ne naa Deen cnieny in debted lor us in famous success, Sooner than honorably commemorate such an event, or do publio homage to such a man, 1 seg you, gentlemen, wltn your own hands first to destroy the por traits or John Adams and Jonn uuncy Adams in Memorial Hall, and tnen to rtze to tbe ground tbe hall itself. How great an Insult you are proposing to the two illustrious Pres'dents of the name of Adams, is made manifest by the following words from the son of the one and the grandson or the other: "I think Mr. Hayes was elected by a fraud, and I do not mean to nave it said that at the next election I had forrotten it. I do not say Mr. Hayes committed the fraud, but it was committed by his party. I have no enmity to Mr. Hayes, but after tbe fraud by which he became President, I could not vote for any per son put up for President on the Repub lican side, who aid not disavow tbe fraud committed. I would not support any member of that party who had any sort of mixture wi '.h that fraud. I feel that the counting out is just as much a fraud now as at the time it was perpetra ted."

Hot the youth or the en' tire country the life of Lee, in its statu esque dignity and classic purity, may well serve as a model. There was no stain on his sword. In all things he was beyond reproach.

Charleston News and Courier, on Anniversary of Lee's Birthday. Thb North American Review for Feb ruary contains an article by Gen. Grant, advocating tbe Nicarauga Canal project. The genial Autocrat of the Breakfast Table, Oliver Wendell Holmes, follows with an ess.iy, entitled "Tbe Pulpit and Pew," written in tbe best spirit of the Christian philosopher, in which ha en deavors to show the need he believes to exist for the revision of the prevalent theological creeds. Under the quaint title of "Aaron's Rod in Politics," A. W. Tourgee emphasizes the obligation im posed upon the Republican party by the Chicago platform, of making provitbn for educating illiterate voters. James Freeman Clarke makes a valuable con tribution to the discussion of the author ship of Shakespere's plays. The serious evils that may result from the partisan character of the U. S.

Wb are informed that it is not our friend Abner McKinley of Canton, who received the appointment of consul at Honolulu, but another brother. We beg Abner's pardon. We are happy to know, however, that our favorable com ment on the wisdom of President Hayes's appointment, which "he made without Major McKlnley's solicitation, and by his own option," is equally applicable to the real appointee, as it is claimed his shirt collar is worn as high as Abner's. Alliance Review. Thb old rebel yell is being served up with fresh trimmings. The New York Tribune gravely says Democratic opposi tion to the scheme to pension Grant is only another evidence "that the war of the rebellion was a war against tho Democratic party." We hope Democrats will remain steadfast in their opposition. Among the people, not only Democrats, but Republicans, are weary of this ever lasting passing the hat for Grant. Pitts burgh Post. Secretary Sherman made an uncom mon effort to thaw out when he visited Columbus to thank the Legislature. He shook bands right and left, and, as a co temporary remarks, "omitted nothing which tended to impress each with the fact, that he was deeply interested In the personal welfare of each individual in Ohio." There arises tbe awful bueJ picion that Sherman is getting ready to be a candidate for President in 1884. Perhaps Gai field might bave done better lor his owm future by keeping Sherman in the Cabinet. Cin. Enquirer. Coal has been found near Ojnabnror. Ohio, on the line of the Connotton Vat- ley road.

Tbe hills of Oinaburg are full of it. Nothing pew in that bit of news. The old Btory. A Columbus special to the Cleveland Heral, dated January 21, says : "Nothing was done to speak of in either house to-day, as ibis is the day on which both branches take the tri weekly adj )urnment and do not meet until Tuesday afternoon. The Senate adjourned as soon as the journal was read, and the Honse followed suit a few minutes later." Remember that this is tbe great Republican Reform Legislature that is acting up in this way.
