Our first educational institutions were
established In New England, Some of our
best still remain there, but with the tide of
Immigration that creeps westward, with
the progressiveuess and energetic zeal of
the west, New England will inevitably
have to release her claims as the zenith of
education in this country. The Boston
Herald laments: "The National Educa
tional association elects a Colorado man for
its president, a Kansas man for secretary,
an Illinois man for treasurer, and gives
Massachusetts the first vice presidency.
When westward the star of empire takes
its way, we wish it would leave something
besides its vices for Massachusetts."
The Democracy of Ohio
forces in the field, and unexpectedly to a
good many people they have dodged the
only real issue before the country the
protection of American labor. The Re
publican party has repeatedly proclaimed
its belief In a protective tariff. It was
supposed since the recognized leader of the
Democratic party in the south and west,
Mr. Carlisle, had repeatedly and manfully
proclaimed his conviction that the theory
of protection is false, that the Ohio De
mocracy would take a bold stand on this
issue. Tne Louisville Courier Journal,
the leading Democratic journal of the west
and south, has boldly declared its opposi
tion and has given notice that the Democ
racy would attack the theory In its strong
holds. It is conceded by all par
ties that the revenues of the government
must be raised by tariff taxation. The Re
publican party has declared its intention to
adjust this tariff with a view to the protec
tion of the American manufacturer and
American laborer. There is no chance for a
double construction of the language used
in State Republican platforms. The Dem
ocrats of Ohio in their platform on this
subject say: "We demand such judi
cious reduction of the present burdensome
tariff as shall result in the production of
revenue sufficient only to meet the expense
of the economical administration of the
government; payment of liberal pensions to
Union soldiers and sailors and payment of
interest and principal of the public debt,
and if necessary in favor of such reduction
of internal revenue except on liquors, as
will prevent the accumulation of a surplus
in the national treasury, and we denounce
any attempt to abolish the tax on liquors
for the purpose of keeping up the present
unjust, unequal and onerous tariff system."
The only position here taken is that
they are opposed to the abolition
of the internal revenue tax on liquors. But
can any honest Democrat tell the position
of his party In Ohio on the subject of pro
tection to Americ&n labor? Henry Wat-
terson can tell the free trade Democrats
that the platform favors tho reduction of
the tariff so as only to produce a sum suf
ficient to meet the running expenses of the
government economically administered,
and there will in consequence be a very
large reduction of the tariff. Mr. Randall
can tell the protectionist that the platform
favors raising all the revenues of the gov
ernment by a tariff, and that tbe Demo
crats intend to build a navy and fortify our
sea coast, which will require a
greatly increased revenue from tariff
taxation, and we will in consequence have
more protection. They are in favor of a
redugtion of the tariff to the necessities of
government. They are also in favor of a
reduction of Internal revenue. Would not
a reduction of internal revenue necessitate
an increase In tariff duties to the extent of
the reduction on internal revenues. It is
barely possible and by no means probable
that the Democrats can carry Ohio on such
a platform. The masses of all parties are
honest and demand fair dealing on the part
of their leaders. The masses of the Demo
cratic party in Ohio will be disgusted with
their own platform.

Canada is agitating the question of union

should make Uncle Sam think twice before
he opens the door to her. In 1F68 the gross

creased until it now amounts to $290,000,
000. The annual expenditure has risen
from $13,000,000 in 1808 to $39,000,000 in
188G. The population has increased since
1S57 only 33 per cent, while in the same
time the gross debt has increased 230 per
cent, and the annual expenditure 290 per

Canada to the United States, except such
as Is based upon a sentiment, or for the
laudable purpose of reforming It. Omaha
AN OLD MAN.
The oldest man in the world is said to be
James James, a colored citizen of the
United States, who resides at Santa Rosa,
Mexico. He Is 135 years old. He was
born at Dorchester, S. C, in 1752. He
was one of the laborers at Fort Moultree
during the unsuccessful attack by the Brit
ish fleet in 1776. He was then 24 years
old. nis master, James James, manned
one of the guns during the fight. His last
owner was Henry James, who moved to
Mexico in 185S, in order that his slaves
might become free before his death. At
present the rheumatism keep3 James from
walking, but he can drag himself a short
distance, and otherwise is in fairly good
The speech of Major McCattiy at Rich
mond to a visiting Grand Army post, which
will be found in another column, is in
many respects, a strange production. There
are, perhaps, no people In this country
whose loyalty to the Union has never fal
tered, who would ever entertain such an
idea as that contained in this speech. The
rebellion and its cause, slavery, are no par
ticular credit to the great heart of the
American people; that we as a people
should wish to perpetuate its memory by
an inscription on the flag of the free. It Is
to Major McCarthy's credit that he ac
cepts the situation and pledges his
allegiance to the Union. It is no discredit
to him that he thought his cause right.
We believe this speech contains the
sentiment of the greater part
of tho men who fcught in the
southern army. They will say the star
spangled banner is a grand old flag but we
still love our battle flags. Like an adopted
citizen who swears allegiance to the Re
public, but whose love goes back to the
hillsides and valleys and repling rills by
the old homestead in his oppressed land, so
the love of these men wonder to their for
mer allegiance. Because of this returning
Ioyc to former allegiances the fouuders of
this republic enacted in their supreme law
that n o man born on foreign soil should
even be trusted to beav the office of presi
dent. For the same reason the men who
fought to destroy this government and
swore allegiance to another flag, are not
the men to whom should be committed the
interest of this Republic.

On our trip over the Eagle line we found
corn in a much better condition than one
would expect They got but little of the
late rains but their corn will not hurt much
if they can get rain in the next week or so.
The immense brick yards at Colwich are
doing a fine business and the extra number

they would rent readily at good prices.
Andale is also coming to the front with her
pressed brick enterprise; when they get
fairly down to business it will be one of

A BOLD BAD GOOD MAN.
A christian minister of Odessa, Mo.,
named J. J. Henry, was accused by the
good people of that town of conduct unbe
coming a gentleman and minister of the
gospel, toward a certain young lady of his
flock. Missouri like, a mob of about fifty
persons called on the reverend gentleman
with the avowed purpose of escorting him
out of town, clad in a suit of chicken
feathers and "on a rail." At this stage of
the interesting proceeding Rev. J. J.
Henry did what was considered a very un
expected thing for a minister of the gospel
to do. He came forth in answer to the
calls of the mob, and with resignation de
picted on his countenance and a big Colts
revolved in his hand, he cooly informed
the mob that he was innocent, and they
could have his body, but that the first man
who touched him would be shot down like
a dog. XTobody touched Rev. J. J.
Henry, and latest accounts says the deacons
j will investigate the matter.
A FAMILY REUNION.
The Munson family will celebrate their
one hundred and fiftieth anniversary in
America on the 7th day of August next at
New Haven, Conneticut, in regard to
which the Denison News: "Two hundred
and fifty years ago, on the 17th day of
August next, Miram A. Munson and fam
ily renounced allegiance to the British
monarchy and cast their lot among the
wild and boundless forests of the new
world. Their camp was pitched near
where now stands the city of New Haven,
Conneticut Mr. Munson, like the vast
majority of emigrants from the old country
at that time, was thoroughly imbued with
the principles of religious and civil liberty
and as America offered the greatest free
dom for the enjoyment of these principals
he preferred to undergo the trials and hard
ships of pionaer life to remaining a vassal
to the English crown. Since that time the
family has been a prosperous andsuccessfu
one, It has grown and multiplied,
and extended until there is scarcely a state
in the Union in which they are not to be
found. Politics has never been a leading
feature with the family; they, almost to a
unit, prefer some industrial avocation.
Among their members may be found many
of the wealthiest and most influential peo
ple of New England. They are conspicu
ous among the manufacturers and bankers
of that country, many of them being
millionaires. Those of the family who
emigrated west and south are mainly agri
culturists and traders.
The banner (the bloody shirt) having
worn itself away with the frautic efforts of
twenty years ago, the Star Spangled Ban
ner was again run up to the head of the
stuff and peace broke out everywhere. Iu
this presence ana in this happy era it is
hard to realize that there was a time when
I sincerely hated, as the emblem of oppres
sion and as the flag of a deadly foe, the
Star Spangled Banner! That it once typ
ified to me everything hateful, despicable
and tyranical. It is hard to recall with
vivid reality the fact that there was a time
when the Confederate battle flag gathered
volleys of bullets and curses wherever ii
floated. The loyal sons of the North aimed
death at it and the men who bore it. It
floated bravely and sometimes victoriously
over sulphurous fields, and to our ejes was
as the plume in the helmet of Liberry. We
loved the brave old battle flag and hated
the beauty and grace of the stars and
stripes. You hated the red rebel rag and
saw in the streaming, waving, rustling,
shining Star Sprangled Banner a thing of
wondrous beauty, a joy forever, a fit ob
ject of adoration. 1 begin to approve
agaiirthe national colors. It is a pretty
flag, and fiies over a brave and ereat peo
ple. I, I well, I love the old flag and
I would like to improve it Can t you
fellows who fought and captured the Con
federate battle flag so much, now that you
have had time to think over it, and have
seen and understood the men who carried
it can t you see that it is not sucn an
awfully bad, ugly old thing as you thought
it was ?
I honestly believe the people of the north
thought they were right, and for that rea
son 1 can forgive them. I have forgiven
them; and you have forgiven us. Good I
The hope df the country is in the men who
carried "arms. The people of the north
and of the south are hopelessly, affection
ately and irrevocably mixed up. Why not
mix up the flags and put an end at once to
the war and to the bowling fanatics? The
Star Spangled Banner is today the bravest
and the purest flag that waves. It repre
sents a land of liberty and a brave people.
You know what it is and will doubtless
join me in the sentiment: "Long may she
wave." The Confederate battle flag can
not be forgotten. It floated over valor,
devotion and heroic sacrifice. It heard the
shouts of victory hi d fought it way to a
place in the world's history. In with the
southern cross, then? Let the Confederate
battle fla be a part of the national
colors. Mix the flags and what a brave
Unnn flag it would be. Up with a Union
flag that will declare to the civilized world
that here we have a country full of union,
peace, liberty, equality and fraternity! Un

American people. The Union Is no longer
a mere sentiment, but a ligament such as
bound the Siamese twins. One flag, one
uniform, one source of authority is the
loyal and ucfllnchlng demand of the south.

National unification. And state sovereignty
is dead. If we have decided to abandon a

St Louis Globe-Democrat: Col. Bill
Morrison is said to cherish the opinion that
he can beat Uncle Jehu Baker for congress
next year. One of the greatest drawbacks
to Col. Bill's political welfare is the habit
of. cherishing opinions, particularly in re
gard to Uncle Jehu, which run contrary to
Urn cold facts of experience and observa
tion. New York Tribue: So long as this city
does not contain a majority ot scoundrels
the people have it in their power to keep
villains In subjection. Thny have just wit
nessed an impressive manifestation of the
majestic force which resides in their united
purpose, and it will be their own fault If
New York once more becomes a safe place
in which to conspire against the laws of
God and man.
New York Star: Hoodlums and mobs
are the same everywhere, but Mexico, as
represented by her intelligence and worth

hour of her darkest need, and an unques

Detroit Tribune: The Democratic bosses

Iowa is a failure and warning them
not to permit Texas to adopt the ruinous

Salt Lake Tribune: Now. after this
long course of perfidy, what trust or power
can congress or the country confide to this

can espouse its cause without being dis
honored as a particeps criminls? What
political party can give it "aid and coin
