buying their new instruments, this was
followed by Mr Granger with a like
amount.
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&not 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. Isw York Trilcxo.
