The campaign ia over and we
shall now have more room for local
and general news, correspondence,
and literary matter. We shall labor
to make the Reitblt jan worthy of
the patronage of evey family in the
county. We candidly believe that no
family can afford to do without a
county paper, and we believe that if
every man would subscribe pnd pay
for his county paper, thus enabling
the publishers to expend on it the
time and iabor to make a paper that
would represent all the varied inter
ests of the county, he would in return
receive more than ten times the
amount paid for the paper in tbe in
creased value of what he has to sell,
and in the new branches of trade and
business that would be opened up,
giving employment and increased
wages and prices to all. As a local
and family newspaper during the
coming year, the Republican will be
excelled by no county paper in the
State. It will contain the latest home
and foreign news in a condensed
form, and up to the latest hour of go
ing to press. It will be a Newspaper
in the truest sense of the word, and
will contain twice as much general
news as any other paper of its size
published in this part of the State.
It is carefully edited, and its selec
ted literary articles, gems of thought,
items of interest, wit and humor col
umns,agricultural and domestic intel
ligence, and educational articles,
make it the paper (or everybody, and
we hope all our readers will endeavor
to get us new subscribers, and that
all who are in arrears will see the ne
cessity of immediately paying up,
that we may have the means to make
the paper what it ought to be. In all
the long years of the past the Rkpttb
ucas has had no official patronage,
and often, no doubt, when the sub
scribers grumbled and thought the
paper wfcs not as good as it ought to
be, the editor was paying out more
every week than he was taking in,
and was racking his brains as to how
he would get money to pay the hands
and keep the paper going, and at the
same time keep his family from star
ving, while many of his subscribers,
perfectly able to pay, had money be
longing to him in their pockets.
Friends, this is not as it Should be.
We intend to give you a good paper,
a paper worth all the money that we
ask for it, but we intend that those
who subscribe for it shall pay for it.
Now, to the heads of families, to the
wives, to the boys and girls, we say,
help us inerease the circulation of the
Republican and help to pay for it; a
few dimes saved by each member of
the family will pay for the paper a
year, and it will be worth more than
its price to every member of the family.
The Collosseum Theater, at Liver
pool, England, was the scene of a
frightful panic last Friday night ;
which resulted in forty persons be
ing crushed to dea.h. The panic was j
caused by a cry of Are, which proved
to be without foundation. Those who
kept their seats escaped the crush ;
and if the fire had been a reality,
ÄOi.ld have stood a much better
chance of escape by doing exactly
the same thing.
There i3 a turn in the tide of im
migration. During the month of
September, there arrived at the port
of New York, 16,678 passengers, of
whom 8,953 were immigrants. The
number arriving the corresponding
month last year was C.G73. Of the
8,955, 2,428 were from Germany, and
2,077 from England. For the last
three months in 1878, the imigration
was 25,200, against 20,109 during the
corresponding three months a year
The New York correspondent of the
Philadelphia Ledger, says Mr. Tilden
will take no notice of the cipher dis
patches. In other words he will leave
his friends who are Implicated to
"hold the bag."
All possible fears that the existing

We have nearly $700,000,000 of pa
per money in circulation, and the en
tire volume has already reached a
practical equality with coin, the dif
ference being less than half a cent
on the dollar. The result of the Oc
tober elections shows that the coun
try will not listen to the demands of
the irredeemable paper mony advo
cates, and abandon what has already
been accomplished, for the purpose
of again going through the hard
times of the past.
The National Greenback vote in
Ohio will not exceed 30,000; This is
a great surprise to all parties, but
only confirms the opinion expressed
by the Rkpublican during the cam
paign, that wherever the Greeuback
ers had shown any considerable
strength in the past, they would lose
heavily at present. The "flat Idea"
cannot stand discussion. Whenever
men begin to read botü sides and
think for themselves they cease to
vote the National ticket.
Last year there was a division
among the Ohio Republicans, and the
State went Democratic by 22,520.
This year the Republicans were unit
ed and made a vigorous canvass.
The result is a majority of at least
10,000, which represents a Republican
gain of over 30,000.
There seems to be no longer any
doubt that Edison has solved the
problem of illumination by electricity.
The light produced is eaid to be as
far superior to gas as gas is to a tallow-candle.
His invention is sub

has been formed in New York for the
introduction of the new light It is
claimed to be much cheaper as well
as better than gas, and if this proves
to be the case, we shall see our prin

The next great political contest

Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Ne

political complexion of the next Con
gress. In another column will be found
i the particulars of the lynching of five
negroes at Mt. Vernon, Ind., Friday
night. It is said that the bodies
hung all day Saturday from the
branches of the grfat locust trees in
the court yard, and were looked at
with wonder by the thousands who
came from the surrouuding country.
That such a tragedy could be enacted
in our own State of Indiana, is a
shame on our enlightened civiliza
tion, However guilty of crime those
men might have been, the law should
have been allowed to take Its course.
The men who could cut an old man
to pieces and then throw the pieces

as the Republican majority in Ohio
from ten to fifteen thousand. The
Democrats have also elected a major
ity of the members of the legislature,
thus securing the return of Voorhees
to the United States Senate. While
the result may taken as a whole
be considered a triumph for the Re
publicans, they have as compared
with the election of two years ago
lost seven members of congress, but
this was owing to the redistricting of
Ohio by the Democracy, and the com
bination of the Democrats and Na
tionals in Indiana and Iowa. Both
Democrats and Nationals come out of
of tho contest badly demoralized.
The small vote received by the Na
tional Greenback party, so called, was
not only a surprise to them, but to
everybody else. In many counties
1 where they were supposed to be the
strongest it was found that they
scarcely had an existence. In this
State where their organs claimed a
hundred thousand votes and three
congressman, they cast only about
one-third of that number, and with
the help of the Democrats, not by
their own votes, elected one congress
man. They claimed a hundred thou
sand votes and three congressmen in
Ohio, and they cast as nearly as can
be learned from the returns, about
twenty-five thousand votes, and elec
ted no congressmen. By uniting
with the Democrats in Iowa they
managed to help them elect two con
gressmen, but it is evident that with
out help from the Democracy they
would not have been able to elect a
single congressman anywhere. It is
absurd for them to talk any longer of
a great popular movement.
The Democratic party, by the com
binations that it has made with the
Nationals, and by its advocacy of one
policy in one section and an entirely
different policy in another section of
the country, has become badly de
moralized and Its iron organization is
broken, while the Republican party
comes out of the contest thoroughly
organized and united, a unit in favor
of honest money, with more members
of congress thau in lb74, and with
better prospects for future success
than it has had at any time during
the past five years.
Fifty-five members of the next
Congress have been elected thus far
in the States of Maine, Vermont, Ore
gon, Colorado, Ohio, Indiana, Iowa
and West Virginia. Twenty-eight of
these elected are Republicans, twenty-two
Democrats and four Democrat
With nearly $100,000,000 in legal
tenders under actual control of the
Treasury, and with a coin reserve of
over $200,000,000, it must be plain to
every candid mind that, without any
further preparation whatever, the
Government can fulfill its obligations
and redeem its outstanding demand
notes on and after January 1, next.
The cipher dispatches written in
Mr. Tilden's house, making offers to
buy electoral votes, seem to be troub
ling the Democratic leaders East very
greatly. There has been as yet no
attempts to justify them or explain
them away, and it is probable that
they will haveaconsiderable effect in
determining the result of the Novem
If local elections are an index of
the future, the Connecticut Republi
cans will make a good record in No
vember. Full returns from the town
elections show that of the 165 towns
that voted, the Republicans carried
80, the Democrats 55, and 30 are
evenly divided. Last year the Re
publicans carried 68, the Democrats
79, and 26 were equally divided.
A report which seems sensational
comes from the old wcrld. It states
that an agitation has begun in Russia
to compel the Czar to abdicate. There
may be some foundation for the re
port, though it seems hardly proba
bly; yet it is known that during the
last few years there has been a pow
erful bat quiet movement going on
throughout the empire in favor of
A special dispatch to the Chicago
Evening Journal, dated Oct 14th, re
ports that the Democrats of South
Carolina continue to refuse to allow
Republican meetings to be held with
out dividing the time with their op
ponents. At the same time the Dem
ocrats absolutely refuse to divide the
time at their meetings with the Re
publicans. The Democrats enforce
their demand for division of time
with the Republicans by aid of the
State militia companies, armed with
g"ns furnished by the United States
Government, at the request of Wade
Hampton and Senator Butler. All
the accounts agree that the Demo
crats are trying to terrorize the Re
publicans, and that Wade Hampton
is doing nothing to protect tbe latter
in their rights. In the district repre
sented by Congressman Smalls, the
Democrats have a body of llfty arm
ed men toride to every point where
a Republican meeting is called, and
demand a division of the time, and
when this is refused, they boldly
break the meeting up.
The mortality among Democratic
statesmen this year is positively
frightful. Mr. Tilden dies of too
much cipher, and Mr. Thurman of too
much "Ohio idea," and Mr. Hendricks
of too much communism, and all the
Massachusetts Democrats of too
much Butler. MIn the country of the
blind, the one-eye is king," says the
proverb. Chiefly because no other
Democratic candidate can be said to
have the breath of life left in his
body, the strongest now seems to be
Mr. Bayard, and he, although an ac
complished gentleman and, accord

The National vote in Ohio did not
reach 30,000, it is said. The Prohibi
tion vote in 41 counties is only 3,886,
and in the State about 10,000.
The local elections in Connecticut
indicate that tho Nationals will not
cast many votes there in November.
Mr. Tilden will treat the cipher tel
egrams with contempt. That's no
more than fair, since they have treat

The Ohio election killed Thurman.
The einher .dispatches have ended
Tilden's career. Hendricks is con
sidered in nobody's way as a presi
dential candidate, and Bayard, of
Delaware, is considered the coming
man in the Democratic party.
The Washington Pout says, In com
menting upjn the bed tu of Senator
Thurman: "He will soon be his
complete self again." Nevermore
will he be that. Time was when Mr.
Thurman's complete self represonted
a presidential candidate with a flat
tering outlook. That time is past.
It makes no difference what later
returns from Indiana may show, so
far as the general effect of Tuesday's
elections are concerned, for the great
fact will still remain that Ohio has
been redeemed from the heresy of in
flation, and has again taken her right
ful place as an upholder of national
honor and honesty. No greater po
litical victory has been achieved with
in the past decade, and the result will
be hailed as an auspicious proof of
the return of good sense to a large
portion of the A merles n people.- -St.

Posey County Indiana, lite Scene ol a
Terrible Tragedy Mi paitlWi
larsof Ihe Outrage.
A terrible tragedy took place at
Mount Vernon, Posey -county, Ind.,
last week. The following from the
Evansville Journal gilves the partic
ulars: The cause of the trouble occurred Mon
day night, when tight negroes, lawless
and drunken, went to a house of ill lame,
near the outskirts ol town, and knocked
Cm admittance. There were three girls
in, and one of them, asking what was
wanted, was answered that a messenger
with a note was waiting. She ;eiuil the
door, and a young negro stood on the
steps, and just Injhind him a gigantic fel
low with a cocked revolver, who ordered
the girl to open the door and couttiiaudcil
hU confederates to enter. The eight en
tered and demanded money from the girls,
who did not have any. The scoundrels
rifled tbe house tor plunder, during which
one girl attempted to eseae by the back
door. One of the scoundrels presented a
revolver at her head and told her he
would kill her if she went ; that they had
business with her. They tlum huddled
the girls into one room, and putting out
the light inaugurated a beastly carnival,
pii vonting the girls from making any out
cry or calling for help, by threats of in
stant death. A little after midnight all
departed leaving the women fainting and
sick On the next morning, in spite of
the election, there was great excitement in
town, and the officers, armed with war
rants, went in search of the ravishers.
Jim Good, Jeff. Ilookins, Ed. Warnerand
Wm. Chambers were arrested Wednesday
and put in .jail, the arrest being made as
quiet as possible in order to prevent
lynching. On Thursday the town wat
greatly excited, but no steps were taken
while the officers were in search of those
w ho had escaped. Last Friday morning,
M J o'clock, Deputy Sheriff (. S. Thomas,
Deputy Marshal Edward Hayes, OoB Sta
ble William Rüssel and Charles Baker
went to the house ot Dan Harris, sr., a ne
gro sixty years old, whose son, Dau Har
ris, jr , was to be apprehended on a war
rant for being one of the ravishers. They
surrounded the house and Thomas
knocked at the door and demanded admis
sion. It was refused. Thomas went to
i he Mile window with Kussel to parley
w ith the parties, and as they apfwoacked
a double barreled shotgun was pu.-died out
and discharged withiu three feet of them.
One buckshot grazed Russell's cheek aud
eighteen buried them selves in Thomas's
face, throat and breast. The jugular vein
was cut and a fchot went through his
heart, bile his shoulder was blown off.
He staggard a few feet and said, 'Boys I
am shot to death,' and fell dead with a
struirgle. Ed. Hayes advanced to the
window and was also tired at, and on his
pail emptied a shotgun into the window
at Harris, but neither va9 hurt much,
Harris getting a few squirrel shot in his
arm. The officers altogether made a raid
Jm the house then, and after two or three
hours' struggle succeeded in getting old
man Harris, Rut young Dan was not
then-. When they took old man llaTis
to jail at about U o'clock they found a
great crowd, armed with pistols aud guns,
hungering for the lives of the men in jail,
and fur Harris in particular. Several ot
them attacked Harris as he was carried
through, and nearly succeeded in shooting
him, and but for the excitement else
where which diverted them would have
tlope it. He was nut iu j.dl, and Jim
Haves. Jim Dunn, Raker and ethers lock
ed ihemscives in, armed to the teeth, and
defied the mob, which was howling out
side, demanding entrance. L nder the de
termined resistance of the officers, how
t ver, the enraL'c 1 Mttth jjraiiiuMy con
cluded to wait till night. One colored
man who came into the mob, began to
talk freely and was shot in the back of the
neck by somebody, aud will be laid up for
miiiii: time. Early in the morning tele
grams concern ing the crisis were sent to
Evansville when- many of the lending
citizens of Mount Vernon were attending
1'nited Stales court, and it became rumor
eu that Gov. Williams had la-en called on
to send the Evansville Rifles and Light
Guard militia. This put the mob into a
(K-rtect frenzy ofexciteiue.it, and 200 men
armed with IUI and pistols Were ordered
to the dMt to await the coming of, the
Hain und prevent the militia irom getting
off. A caunon was got out of the quarters
and uuüsr charge of the remainder of
the crowd wu hauled to the
court house and planted in front of the
building facing the street to the depot.
The militia did not come, us there was n
authoritative call for them, and at 2
o'clock the excitement had somewhat sub
sided, although a med men were crowded
in Die streets and around the jail. Not a
negro was to be seen iu town.
