CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, JULY 4, 1833- SEMFVVKRKLY. ADDITIONAL EDITORIAL. By the change in the Internal Reve nue districts we do not learn that A Clark Tonner, of our city, will lose his wholesome place. Stark county nominated Hoadly, and an a return for the favor, the conven tion nominated Warwick by acclama tion. Alliance Leader. Republican journals call Hoadly ''a wlggler in politic." He will wiggle the Republican party thin fall In Ohio ho that there will be hardly enough left to wiggle. The Republican papers have much to say concerning Hoadly, but little or nothing regarding AfrT Foster Fora kerl They are singularly reticent as to this F F man. Some Republican journals call George I loudly an "agnostic." Well, he will doubtless send the Star routo, Pond Scott party into an agonizing condition. Indeed, he has done bo already.? We understand it was not all har mony In the Republican convention that nominated Kckley for the State Senate. It seems there was bitter oppo sition among the Stark county delegates. John Bright declares that he thinks the eight millions of full-grown men on the British Islands could defend a hole in the ground twenty feet wide and twenty miles long. So he is in favor of tunneling the Channel. The Scott law repeals the Sunday law as to liquor selling, so as to admit of councils of municipal organizations passing ordinances allowing saloons to sell openly on Sunday. And yet the Re publican is a "grand, pious, old party" according to some. We are now sailing under the tariff act of March 3, 1883. A large part of the bunion of taxation has been remov ed. Repository. This is the tariff act McKlnley voted against voting with the Democrats. It is a piece of favoritism and hence an Iniquity. The Alliance Review sort of claims Kckley's majority in the Stark-Carroll district will be "a neat 1,000." If we can "judge the signs of the times aright" that "neat 1,000" will be on the other leg. That Is the tendency of things now. It is Hoadly, Warwick and victory. The Iowa Republicans go In for pro hibition, constitutional and statutory, and refuse to renominate a Supreme Judge who had decided the prohibition amendment void because it- was not adopted as the Constitution requires. There are just about enough Republi can Germans in Iowa to reverse that party's majority. Some of the saloon-keepers say nnder the Scott law they are taxed without protection. They are mistaken. The old alleged law against drinking on the premises is repealed. The trafllc is, therefore, lawful. Is that no compensa tion for taxation? Cincinnati Commercial-Gazette, Rep. The Commercial-Gazette might also refer to the Sunday provision, as also a mitigating circumstance. At the next meeting of the General Assembly of the Knights of Labor at Cincinnati, to be held in August, a pro position wtll be submitted to change the system of organization, bo as to make each trade independent. The movement originated in the Pittsburgh district, and is an outgrowth of opposition to the system of taxing all trades when repre sentatives of any one are on strike. The Southern Pacific Railroad con tracts to deliver wheat in Liverpool from San Francisco .via. the jetties for 42 cents a bushol. On the Kith, wheat in San Francisco was quoted at 89 cents and the same day in Liverpool at 11.30. The time by the rail and jetty route is 31 days. The chief competitors are the vessels that go around Cape Horn In from 100 to 120 days, but charging much lower rates. The trade dollar makes a hard fight for itself, because it contains more fine sllvor than any other dollar. The trade dollar" was not called for by the Chinese trade. It was called for in the coarse of the legislation to get rid of silver le gal tender money. The New York Times says: .- "The coin was first authorized ten years ago. At that time the Mexican 'pillar' dollar was most readily received in China, whence came the principal demand for silver. That dollar was worth a little more than our own and more than any other. To enable our dealers to get the Chinese market for their silver, the U. S. Government was authorised to coin 420 grains of silver, nine-tenths tine, into a piece to be dis tinctly stamped 'trade dollar.' This was a little more valuable than the Mexican dollar, which contained 416 gralus.with slightly less alloy. The new coin was made exclusively for the owners of bul lion and at their expense; it was, how ever, declared a legal tender, in com mon with the fractional silver coins, for amounts not exceeding $5." Chinese do not care for coins. They are experts in weighing and testing all. ver. They prefer sliver bricks, and cut, weigh and stamp to please their deli cately constituted .minds. INDIANA CAMPAIGN. How It Was Supplied With Funds in 1880. Interesting Correspondence Between Morton and Dorsey—Acting as Garfield Suggested. New York, July 2. The Sun prints in a lute edition, editoriarily, a first in stallment of the Dorsey letters as fol lows: "The letters of Morton to Dorsey show that he acted promptly aud vigorously as Uurfleld had requested, for in a few days after the letter to Arthur, Morton wrote to Dorsey as roiiows. FAIR LAWN, NEWPORT, R. I., September 6, 1880. Diiar Senator Dorsey: I expect to send you 11 vo thousand moro in a day or two. I have already called a meeting of my committee which has been largely In creased for Thursday and after that I hope to go on In response to Gen. Gar field's request J to Mentor for a confer ence to learn more details of your pro posed campaign in the west. I want Mr. Hubbell In New York at my meet ing on the Hth at 11 a. m. I. P. MORTON. Again: NEWPORT, Sept. 7, 1880. Dear Mr. Dorsey: I have just received yours of the 4th Inst, and have read with great Interest your plan of action. I wrote you on the 29th enclosing my check for the amount you asked, $ 5,000, and now enclose my check for 15,000 ad ditional. This makes my personal ad vances $30,000, without having collected a dollar from any one. He said Mr. New must stop short unless Mr. Jewell could send him $10,000. I finally gave him a check for $4,000 to Mr. New's order aud also sent $5,000 more to the Senator who was in distress. I think you had better inform Gen. Arthur confidentially of your plans and my action,; and consult with him. Yours very truly, L. P. MORTON. No. 25 Nassau St., N. Y., Sept. 17, 1880. Dear Senator Dorsey: I have your per sonal note and am sorry to see you are disturbed by the remarks made by some people. Your friends here have entire confidence in you and the success of your labors. You can, I think, surely count upon all the assistance your estimates call for. I endorse $5,000 herewith. Keep up your courage. We are bound to curry New York and win the race. L. P. MORTON. Again: May 18, 1880. Dear Mr. Dorsey: Yours of 15th was received yesterday. I immediately tele graphed recommending your going to Indianapolis. I learn this morning through Mr. Hubbel that you are iu immediate want of money. I sent you yesterday morning before receipt of your letter $5,000, as I am going to Newport for two or three days, although I did not know you were in immediate need of money. I will pay the draft of $2,000 advised by Mr. Hnbbell, and send you herewith my check for $1,000, which with the $2,000 subscribed to our com mittee by Mr. Bonier and sent you by him, makes $20,000 in all. L. P. MORTON. LETTER FROM MICHIGAN ISHPEMING, MICH., June 30, 1883. Ed. Democrat: Thinking that, per haps, a few words from this, the great iron ore producing portion of the United States, would not be altogether uninter esting, especially at this time, as we are now experiencing the Deauties anu trie benefits of the late and lamented tariff commission. Ishpeming is the largest city in Mar quette county, situated 10 miles west of the city of Marquette, from whence nearly all the shipments of Marquette county mines are made by Lake. Within the city limits of Ishpeming are located the Lake Superior, Cleveland, New York and Barnum mines; the first named, the largest in the United States, shipping last season nearly- 300,000 tons of ore. The Cleveland with an equal capacity, or nearly so, whilst notshowingso well in the out-put, is capable of duplicating the figures at any time. The Barnum and New York, each owned and con trolled by good Democrats, viz: W. II. Barnum and the silent man of Gram mercy Park, Btand well up in the figures of ore mined and shipped last season. Whilst the above named are the princi pal mines in the immediate limits of the town, there are many others close by which, daring last season, shipped enormous quantities of ore; and, con trasting this busy, active and energetic city of last year, with its ceaseless trains of ore laden cars passing through the city at all hours of the day and night, and Its merchants and tradesmen with smiling faces in anticipation of the gain their business was sure to bring them, with what it is to-day, we find an ore train Is composed of one section, and trains run at long Intervals and the train men work by what Is known here as "mining time," and when the whistle at six o'clock is blown the engines are driven into their stalls -in the round house and groomed. The business men are despondent. Dur ing the "bob-tail" flush times of last year they very liberally extended credit to the miners, but after January 1st of the present year, when the iron business became unsettled, and men were being discharged and wagns lowered, they dis covered that the men were unable to meet their obligations,- and had to seqk other fields of labor and credit, to their discomfiture; and now, instead of the bland smile lighting np their feat nres, a sort of shylock cast of counte nance is perceptible. Aud since the date above named many failures have taken place, and all this change has come about since Congress Imposed an additional 50 per cent, duty on imported ore, effectually keeping out of the mar ket 600,000 tons at least, (that being the amount imported in 1882). But still the grinding, crushing policy of 'free trade' las not brought this result about. Can anv sensible person believe that protec tion protects? as yon have often asked In the Democrat. Just as I now write I learn that the L. 3. mine discharged 150 men last night, making 400 dischar ged since Jan. 1st, 1883, since which time many of them nave, like Pegnsus, put wings to their feet and taken flight to the land of the Dakotahs. This county is situated in the Con gressional district that had for its rep resentative in Congress that statesman of crystalized purity, "Arab!" Jay Hub bell, whose qualifications tor being good were soon discovered by the other pure statesmen of the "grand old party," and he was made chairman of the equally good congressional committee, of which r. Waterloo McKinley of your county, was also a member and a beneficiary of .Its charitable and noble work. Mr. Prutung, of Megaunee, this county, "Arabl JayB" successor, is a gentleman who has amassed a fortune of several million dollars In the mining industries or this pennisuia. He is a common every-day sort of a person, wnose Kindness or heart and charity of the substantial kind, is lisped bv everv one who knows his name, that his voice win never be heard in debute, cannot for a moment be doubted; but to ques tion his judgement would be going too fur. If, however, there are any German beer halls near the Cupitol where seven up is played, the Sercreaut-at-Arnis will always know where to find him, for tliero bis dulcet-broken German silvery voice can be heard shouting, "high Shack and de game." I must not Close this letter without saying soinetning oi tne press or this county there are several very good newspnpers among which I will name the Mar quette Mining Journal, wIioho editor, Mr. J. P. Swiueford.Gov. Begole has re cently appointed to some position rela tive to the mining industries of the State, aud who, by the way, is an able and fearless Democrat. The Journal fairly briHtlos with news, editorials, fun and mining statistics. Its great rival. The Iron Agitator, of this city, Geo. A. Newitt, editor, is one of the handsomest papers iu the State. Its make-up is good, is well edited, and its local columns are up to the standard. A feature about the Agitator is that its columns are not open to patent medi cine "ads" and on its pages you will never see the bangs of Mrs. Piukham or that studious dutuhmau, St. Jacobs, of oil notoriety, but the pa pern, or rather the editors of them, keep up the time honored principle of throwing wind at each other and they often refer their readers to "the thing" down the road, or "the rag" up the road. I am think ing of going up to the Copper country and will perhaps write you from that W. J. B. STATE UNIVERSITY. The Trustees, Give their Reasons for Removing Dr. Scott. Columiius, July 2. The Board of Trus tees of the Ohio State University met here Friday afternoon in pursuance of the request of Governor Foster for some official report or statement from them explanatory of their action in retiring President Scott from the presidency of the institution. After an exciting meet ing meeting, a committee was appoint ed to draft a reply to the Governor s let ter anil report this evening. The fol low Is the report. "To His Excellency Charles Fostor, Gov ernor of Ohio. Sir: In answer to your polite letter of the 25th Inst., addressed to the Presi dent of the Board of Trustees of the Ohio State University, in reference to their not re-electing the Rev. Walter Q. Scott president of said institution, the board of trustees respectfully submit the following statement: The powers aud duties df the board in relation to the president and faculty of the Ohio State University, are prescrib ed by section 8420 of the Revised Stat utes, which reads as follows: "The board of trustees shall have the power to adopt by-laws, rules, -and reg ulations for Hie government of said col lege, to select a president, to determine the number of professors and tutors. elect the same and fix their salaries. They shall also have the power to re move the president or any professor or tutor, whenever the interest of the col lege, in their judgement, shall require it, to fix and regulate the course of in struction, and to prescribe the extent and character of experiments to be made. Under a rale adopted by said board in 1878 and adhered to ever since, the pres ident and faculty have been elected an nually at the meeting of the board held at the close of the college year. Fol lowing this rule the Rev. Waltor Q. Scott was on June 21st, 1881, elected by the board President of the university for one year. On June 20th, 1882, he was re-elected for one year. At the meeting held on the l'Jth day of June, at the close of the current collegiate year, his term having about expired, he failed of re-election, receiving the vote, of only one member of the board. It is difllcult to place before you aud the public all the causes which resulted in such ac tion. We deem it sufficient to say that each member of the board who voted "no" on the proposition to re-elect Dr. Scott, acting upon his solemn oath, anil looking solely to the nest Interests of the university, for the following, among other reasons, decided that such inter ests would not be subserved by his fur ther retention: First, He had neglected for more than one year to carry into effect a positive resolution of the board, the performance of the duties required by said resolution being one of the reasons for his election as president. Second, That in public lectures at the university and elsewhere, he promulga ted unsound and dangerous doctrines of political economy. Third, Neglect of duty in withhold ing communications sent to the board through him. Fourth, General lack of executive ability. ISlguedJ T. KWINU MILLER. T. J. Godfrey. Jas. B. Jameson. S. H. Kllih.

The Democratic Candidate Honored by a Visit From the Duckworth Club. Cincinnati, June 30. At a quarter past 10 o'clock to-night the Duckworth Club, three hundred strong, with the military band and calcium lights, en tered the beautiful grounds in front of Judge Homily's mansion, on East Wal nut 11 ills. Halting iu front of the porch, the band played a piece, after which calls were made for Hoadly. The Judge appeared at the door and was re ceived with a volley of ringing cheers. His speech throughout was compliment ary and showed u steady avoidance of party questions. He opened with a flat tering reference to the services of the Duckworth Club iu securing him the nomination at Columbus, and referred to the fact that he diil not get the un animous support of the club, but added, "faithful are the wounds of friends." He welcomed the club to the First ward and reminded them that here people put into practice the principle of living ac cording to Jefferson inn principles, each man allowing his neighbor to think, eat, drink, and mind his own business, just us he pleased. He was vehemently cheered. His parlors were crowded with friends and neighbors from East Walnut Hills. The Republican papers are endeavor ing to create tlie Impression that the life-long Democrats, whom they flippant ly term "moss-backs," will not support Judge ll ailly for Govirnor. They need not Hatter themselves with such cheap delusion. We can speak for Licking county with certaiuty. Onr old time Democracy are true to the core, and will do their full share toward the election of Judge Hoadly, and winning the great victory this fall that decides the fate of the Republican party. Judge Hoadly will poll the lull Democratic strength in old Licking, aud he will receive a lar ger independent vote than any man Newark Advocate. The disappointment to the Republi can party because of lloadly's nomina tion Is truly touching, and its papers andistrikurs are so viciously exercised that it is feared that Foraker will be "postponed" and the whole capoodle will vole the Democratic ticket. The sympathetic hearts of Republican politi cians no longer throb for Ward, but for the whole Democratic party because it lias rriundereu so fatally, four For akerl Unhappy Republican party!

The Hon. Frank Hurd, member of Congress from Ohio, was met yesterday by a reporter, and inveigled into a short talk on Ohio poll ties. "I am here purely on professional business," he said, "and have not paid much attention to results since the con vention." How do you like the ticket?" "1 think the ticket is a splendid one. Judge Hoadly occupies the front rank in his profession in unto, and is regard ed as among the ablest lawyers in the whole country. He win mane an active, vigorous campaign, and will call to the support of the Democracy its allies, the liberal Germans, who almost unani mously desired his nomination. That nomination was made alter tne most active opposition of those who were called moss-backed Democrats. The Democracy has nothing to fear from them, for when the ticket is nominated they vote it. lloadly's superb talents, his great service to tne Democracy in re sisting the counting-ln of Hayes, his original fealty to the Democratic party, in which he was born, will all combine to make for him the most enthusiastic campaign we've had .in Ohio for many years. The nomination of Peter Brady for State Treasurer adds materially to the strength of the ticket, which is a good one all the way down." "There have been some changes in tne State Central Committee, have there not?" "Yes. the Chairman. John G. Thomp son, has b ten deposed. This deposition from a position he nas held for twenty five years I regard as a great political blunder. He knew every election pre cinct in Ohio, and was familiar with every local politician of prominence. lie understood tnorouguiy uie yuubicui necessities of every locality in the State. To turn out such an organizer Is not only political ingratitude, but endangers the success of the party." "What have you to say abont the plat form adopted by the convention?" "Upon the liquor question the Demo cratic party offers the only intelligent proposition. The Republican party de clares for taxation of the liquor busi ness which is already taxed as every other business Is In Ohio. It proposes to select this legitimate business out of all others and put an additional burden noon It. The Democratic party proposes. In consideration of the danger both to the public and the man engaged in the business, to ask from him a license fee annually which shall enable him to do his business without detriment to tne people and with the protection of the law." "Is the tariff question treated satis factorily?" "The platform upon the tariff is some what meaningless, bnt it is so much better than the Republican resolution upon the same subject that no revenue reformer onght to have a doubt that it is his duty to vote the Democratic nonet. FRIGHTFUL COLLISION. A Veritable Slaughter on the Rochester & Pittsburgh, Bradford. Pa..
