THE SPIRIT OF DEMOCRACY.
Tuesday, July 29, 1879.
Conciliating a Male.
The hoy were sluing around
on the
barrels tnd boxes in the rear of Deacon
Exekiel Hengrove's store, telling mule
lories, characterized by all the antrum
meiea range or Hyperbole and vigorous
and varied expletives, which usually im
part so vivid an interest to this class of
anecdotes. The credibility of the reci
tals was noticeably in inverse ratio to
tne nnmoer ann variety or sacred, pro
lane, or
holly imaginary personages
and objects apiiealed to in evidence of
the exact and unimpeachable truth of the
narrative.
whopper about a mule he once had, that
got a lair chance at his colored driver,
and with one kick sent him flying fifty
feet through the air, never touching the
ground once till bis head struck the Bide
of the house, about three yards from the
ground, and went through clapboards
and plastering, making a hole just like a
cannon-ball. Pete was voted the cham
pion of the evening, when a sedate, mid
die-aged man, who had hitherto sat si
lent in a corner, assiduously spitting at
a knot-hole in the floor, said he rather
guessed he could beat that.

the stranger, deliberately removing his
"chaw" from his cheek, and laying it on

There was a solemn pause for about

DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.

The following platform waa adopted Jane
4, m:
Rksolved That the Democracy of Ohio de
mand free and fair elections, and to that end
denounce all Interference with eleotlons by
the military power; that the experience of
this and other countries has abundantly
proved that the presence of troops at the
polls Is destructive of freedom of eleotlons
and Is incompatible with the exlstenoe of
free Institutions; that the laws enaeted by
Congress whloh, under the pretense of regu
lating the manner of Congressional eleotlons

tional, and for that reason ought to ba re
pealed; that they are also instramentalitles
of fraud, force and corruption, by whloh the
parly In power uses the money of the people
to oorrupt, and thousands of Irresponsible of
ficers to harass and eoeroe the voters and es
pecially : by force and fraud to deprive our
naturalised oitisens of the riant to vote, ana
for these reasons also said laws ought to be
immediately repealed.

dent or the United States, by his unpreoe
dented nse of the veto power in order to
tenefuate said laws, and the use of armed
men at the soils, has shown a spirit ef fao
tion and a devotion to party snooess Instead
of the welfare of the oountry and the preser
vation of Its Constitution and liberties that
demand the condemnation of the whole
Amerioan people. '
Resolved. That President Hayes, by his
frequent interposition of the veto in order to
defeat legislation that was plainly cons ma
tional, that In no way interfered with the in
dependence of any other department of the
Government and bad received the most ma
ture' consideration of Congress, has shown

Besolved. That the efforts of the Bepub.
lican party to open and keep alive the war
feeline between the North and South, are to
be condemned by every lover of his country.
Besoltbd. That wo reaffirm the flnanoial
principles heretofore advocated by the Demo
cratic party of Ohio that the issue of mon

belong to the General Government alone.and
ought not to be delegated or Intrusted to in.

oppose the perpetuation of . the present

made receivable for all dues, and a legal ten

Besolved. That after changing the valua

money, by which the heavy burden of
debts now resting upon the people were
uo ura uw v a "Mft "kv vvvv w nwvi
created, to the former level of gold and sil-1
ver, and that the change then made in the
metaiuo stanaara liseii oy tne aemoneusa
tion of silver was a monstrous fraud upon
the people, cunningly devised in the inter
est ot the holders of bonds, that ahould be
condemned as in violation of every prinolple
of honest dealing, and a covert assault upon
the fundamental rights of property, and we,
therefore, demand the full restoration of sil
ver to its orginal place as a money metal,the
same as gold.
Kisolvbd. That the rapid increase of th
interest bearing debt of the Government
under the present Administration ought to
excite the serious apprehension of the peo
ple. We demand that the further inorease
in the bonded debt in time of peaoe be
stopped, and it be put In process of extlno
tion.- . .
Bisolved. That the attack made upon the
State Legislation, the Republican platform,
ia wholly undeserved, and that the Legisla
ture in its arduous word of codifying the
laws of the State, in the redaotion of fees
and salaries of County offloers, and the pas
sage of a law to protect the ballot and pre
vent bribery at elections, deserve the com'
mendation of the people of the State.
Bbsolvbd. That it is the duty of our Gov-
ernment to maintain to its fullest extent the
doctrine that a man may in good faith
change his habitation and beoome a citizen
of any other oountry. We should protect in
every part of the world all our naturalised
oit aens, as we would our native-born, and
should resist all Improper claims upon him

The Reasons Why.
Somebody a crusty old bachelor, of
course, inquires why, when Eve was
manufactured of a spare rib, a servant
was not made at the same time to wait
on her ? Somebody else a woman we
imagine replies in the following strain :
"Because Adam never came whining to
Eve with a ragged stocking to be darn
ed, collar string to be sewed on, or a
glove to mend,'rightaway quick now!'
Because he never read the newspapers
until the sun got down behind the palm
trees, and stretching out, yawned out,
'Is not supper most ready, my dear?'
Not he. He made the fire and hung the
kettle over it himself, and we will ven
ture to say, pulled the radishes, peeled
the potatoes, and did every thing else he
ought to do. He milked the cows, fed
the chickens, and looked after the pias
himself, and he never brought home half
a aozen mends to dinner when Eve
aaun i tresn pomegramtes. tie never
stayed out till eleven o'clock to a politi
cal meeting, hurrahing for an out-and
out candidate, and then scolding because
poor iive was siting up and crying in
side the gates. He never played bil
liards, rolled ten-pins, and drove fast
horses, nor choked Eve with cigar
smoke. He never loafed around corner
groceries while Eve was rocking little
Cain's cradle at home. In short he did
not think that she was especially created
for the purpose of waiting on him, and
he had no idea that it would disgrace
him to lighten Eve's cares a little. That
is the reason why Eve did not need
hired girl, and from it may be inferred
the reason why her fair descendants do."
Woman at Work.
