DEMOCRACY'S DEATH STRUG GLE. The Democratic party seems incapa ble of coming squarely before the coun try on a clean-cut issue and measuring strength with the Republican party in the open field. Conscious that there is nothing in its history or motives that will commend it to the thinking, up right voter, it resorts to peurile trickery and catchpenny expedients to win the support it cs¬ hope to command on its own merits. Its candidates for the Presidency for a quarter of a century have been chosen solely on tbe ground of expediency, and its platforms during that time have promised anything and every thing that it was thought would capture votes. They have agreed in but one thing bitter abuse and misrep resentation of Republicanism. The history of the last five Presidential con tests show these facts clearly. In 1864 the Democracy nominated a. Union soldier McClellan who had been removed from his command for incapacity, in the hope of catching votes among Union men who might sympa thize with him ; and he was placed on a platform of tcpperhead" utterances Lincoln was triumphantly elected. In 1868 this scheme was reversed. The candidate was a copperhead" statesman, and the platform was made Union in sentiment thre years after the war was over, Seymour was beaten, and Grant entered the White House. In 1872 the whole party organization and its principles were surrendered to a crowd of Republican bolters, and Gree ley was made the nominee . The spec tacle was an amazing one to see a po litical party pass over the statesmen in its own ranks, men whose lives had been passed in the advocacy of Democ racy, to tae for its standard-bearer a man who had all his life been that par ty's uncompromising enemy an origin al Abolitionist , and one of the founders of the Republican party itself. The platform was made up of equal parts of abuse of Republicanism and general gush on all other topics . Grant was re-elected and Greeley died insane. In 1876 they nominated Tilden, solely because he had done some good work as a reformer of abuses in the Demo cratic government of New York, which abuses had become so outrageous as to make the party a stench in the nostrils of all honest men. They placed him on a platform which was nothing but a yell for 'reform" and an appeal for power. The hollowness of the cry of "reform" and the character of Tilden were both shown up clearly by a most astoundijg attempt to defeat the will of the people. For the first time in Amer ican history a set effort was made to buy up Presidential electors for money, and to reverse the verdict of election in entire states by the most gigantic treachery asd frauds . It failed, and the Democracy went down again in ig nominous defeat. In 1880, all new expedients being ex hausted, they tried the soldier dodge again, and nominated Hancock, simply because he was an Union Soldier with a creditable record ; and, because "re form" was a good catch-word, made it and a tariff for revenue only" their platform. The soldier dodge did not work as they expected , and thinking men repudiated the free trade heresy. Over they went one more, and 44 sat in the dust in the valley cf defeat, chewing the bitt;r cud of disappointment." And now in this year cf grace 18S4, the Democratic party comes once more to the front; lean and hungry as a wolf in midwinter, after its 24 years of ab sence from ofSce ; battered and bruised to the last degree from its numerous de- jeats; with Bone among it3 great nien of National reputation that it is willing to trust with leadership ; with no settled policy but a ravenous , insane desire for - . " j.--j.! i power : wita no asw expeiieci at cauu it enters on the campaign which will be its last National contest, if again de feated , with a combination of two old expedients, which have failed when used singly . It has secured an obscure leader, a third-rate lawyer, without ex perience in National affairs; because he is recommended by a lot of Republican free trade soreheads, would be leaders, and Pharisees: and because he, like Tilden, "reformed" some glaring abuses in his own party. The exper ience of 1872 did not warn the Demo crats of the futility of yielding to the wishes of renegade Republicans nor that of 1834 of the impossibility of mak ing the people believe that the Demo cratic party would ever really favor re form. They have placed this unknown nobody on a platform that again calls for free trade. This alone would defeat them, even had they a strong candidate. The suit will be the same as it has been in the years that are past. The Demo cratic party will go down to rise no more in National politics : and over its last resting place the epitaph will be written , "Died of lack of principle." Toledo Blade. ELEVEN REASONS. A young reader asks why he should be a Republican. There are many rea sons, but the following are a few : L The past twenty-three years, under Republican rule, form the most glorious and the most prosperous period in the history of the country. The grand suc cess of the party in the past is the strongest reason for trusting it to meet th future needs of our country. II. Past success has been due to the right purposes and true wisdom of 4,500,000 Republican voters. These voters have not changed in character intelligence, or beliefs. No other body of citizens has shown itself entitled to such confidence. III. The Republican party trusts the people absolutely, as no other party ever has. It has had the courage to serve the best interests of the people, with faith that they have' the intelli gence and patriotism to appreciate such service. Thus it has represented and obeys , not the large landowners at the South, nor the political tricksters or "bosses" of corrupt cities, nor the theo rists, nor the millionaires, but the peo ple. IV. It has always protected labor. The abolition of slavery remoyed com- petion of unpaid workers, and elevated all labor. The homestead law crave every industrious man the power to sup port himself and famdy witkout depend ence upon any employer, and so fixed a limit below which wages cannot be de pressed. At the desire of labor, the Eight-Hour law has been passed , and ihe importation of coolies prohibited. Above all the party has defended labor by a protective tariff . V. When goods made by pauper labor abroad can be sold here without paying for admission to this market. the danger is that our own will become pauper labor also. The republican par ty makes foreign goods pay duty, and so builds up home industries and a home market for farmers. Ihe Democratic party has constantly tried to break down that system, VI. The Republican party protects the civil and political rights of all citi zens. In its youth, it refused to deprive adopted citizens of rights. It gave civ il and political rights to colored citizens. It is the only party that has always re sisted attempts to control votes or elect ions by fraud, fear or force. VII. It has done more than any oth er party to protect citizens when abroad. Led by Mr. Blaine in Congress, it caused Great Britain to give up the claim that British-born citizens still owed allegiance to the British crown. It is pledged to make American citizen ship a safeguard in all lan'ls for every citizen who goes on a lawful errand. VIII. It upholds the public faith. No other Nation in history has ever met a great debt as honorably and rapidly as this Nation under Republican rule, in spite of Democratic opposition. Hence no other has higher credit. IX. It has given this country, ia spite of constant Democratic hostility, a better currency than any other Nation enjoys. Defeat of the party would open the door to the old Democratic currency to thirty-eight kinds of paper issued at will by wild-cat banks. X. It honors the soldiers who caved the Union by putting down a Democrat ic rebellion. It has granted large pen sions, and has enacted that Union sol diers shall be preferred in the choice ot civil officers. It names for Vice-President a soldier-statesman, against Hen dricks, the copperhead and daraagogue. XI. lis candidate for president has exalted ability and great experience, is one of the foremost statesmen of the age , and was selected as his chief ad viser by President Garfield. Against him the Democrats have named a man of no experience or knowlelge of men, who never, had force enough co ciaks people know or care what his opinion were , and who was nominated by cor rupt rins of which be vould be tba tool.
