On the first day of March, The Logan Printing & Pub
lishing Co., as announced, purchased and took possession of
the Ohio Democrat printing plant. On Wednesday evening
of last week the same company purchased the Hocking Sen
tinel, and merged both papers into one publication, as it'ls
now before you. The. subscribers of each will get this paper
in its new form. Now being the only Democratic paper in
Hocking county wo know success is assured, but we will never
let up pushing the paper forward as the best in the county.
We ask the support and co-operation of all friends, and we
will insure our best efforts to this publication.
Here are some kind words said of this new newspaper
I Hocking Hontlnel.'Mureli 13.
Onjast eveniner we sold the dear
old Hocking Sentinel, tho paper of
our fathers and grandfathers to the
Logan Printing and Publishing Co.
We are not quite sure whether
it was x sale or a marriage, but on
Inst evening the Sentinel nnd the
Democrat were made one, and will
be at home to their many friends
in Logan after tliii issue.
The Hocking Sentinel is one of
tho olilent papors in Southern Ohio
and its friends have lost none of
their love nnd good will for this
old time honored pnper.
The Sentinel nnd Democrat wijl
hereafter be issued as one paper to
all the subscribers of either paper.
The Sentinel lus always been u
Democratic pupor, nnd will ftill be
published nnd controlled by the
leading Democrats of this county.
There will be no mistake about this?
We are not now ablo to give the
name under which this paper will
be published.
Perhaps it will be the Sentinel
Democrat or the Democrat-Sentinel,
but its identity shall not be
lost, and it will continue to visit
the homes of its many friends, and

the fact that they are ullve
and are making their Intlueuee felt hi
many ways. "TIs well. All (,'ood citi

of vigor. Under the despotic rides of
the house the ninclilue can run rough
shod over the minority at any time It
sees lit. to do so. but the senate Is still
n deliberative body where it man of
brains and courage may accomplish
something, though In the minority. If
the Democrats of the senate do no oth
er good than the defeat of the sense
less, lnrardous and un-American Santo
Domingo treaty they will deserve the
plaudits of all lovers of the republic.
It Is to be sincerely hoped that they
will continue to work on the lines they
are now operating on. 'Much good will

tariff question. The American Econo
mist, organ of the American Tariff
league, Is the highest staifil par au
thority In I he land, liar none. The trad
er of that paper can always ascertain
precisely what It Is up to. That It pro
poses to read out of the Itepubllcan
parry all but stand patters Is clear as
the sun shining In his' meridian glory
hi a cloudless sky. Iteeently the Econo
mist reprinted without comment, there
by Indorsing it, the following tart edi
torial from the Trenton Gazette, a Re
publican organ:
These Massachusetts Itepubllcans still
call themselves protectionists onil affect
a Hue scorn of what they speak of as the
Democratic doctrine of free trude, yet
they asked for a larger measure of-free
trade Jhan many Democrats would be
willing to consent to.
They want free raw. materials nnd free
coal for their rnctoiles, and that means
free hides, free wool, free Iron and free
wood pulp.
Out in Iowa Governor Cummins has
loaif been known as favoring a, measure
of tariff reform, but he would rio doubt
object to free wool and f:cn hides. '
The west generally would object to
both, but tlie west wants a reduction of
the duties on manufactured goods, to
which Massachusetts would object. The
difference is this: Massachusetts wants to
buy cheap wool and hides and sell cloth
ing and shoes at high prices. Tho w'est
would like to sell wool and hides at tho
best possible prices nnd buy cheap 'cloth
ing and shoes.
There Is a great variety of local luteiv
ests operating in the same contrary fash
Ion all over the country, und that is why
the tariff reformejs cannot get together
and why tho tariff reform sentiment is
always weaker than it would appear to
be from the nolso it makes.
Now, what do you think of that
Hepubllenu tnlk about Hepubllunns?
What will the Itepubllcan brethren uji
in Massachusetts, think of It V liow do
they enjoy being practically read out
of the O, O. I. hi such an ex cathedra
wanncrhs that? They have always
claimed that tbo Itepubllcan party was
cradled in l'aueuil hall, though' the
.Michigan brethren have always Insist
ed that Jackson, Mich., was tho scone
of that momentous event In our his
tory. In fact, when the stand patters
take a good iook at tho Hay Stale ICe
publleanw, yelling at the top of their
voices for free raw materials, they are
as inucn nuzzicu anil worried as Was
tho chicken hen which hutched out a
batch of goslings when she saw her un

A Monumental Job,

Won a Signal Victory. ,
The late Thomas IJrackett Reed al
ways contended that even under the
code of rues bearing his name tho
house could do ns it pleased. A recent
victory won In the house by Hon.
Charles ltniHlolph Thomas of North
Carolina was what Mr. Rood would
have called a vindication of his theory.
Tho committee on ways and means
unanimously reported a bill authoriz
ing the president to ermsolldate cus
toms districts. The Intention of the bill
was to get rid of. certain ports which
do not pay expenses. Such legislation
has been pressed by the secretary of
the treasury for years. Nobody appear
ed before, tlie committee to light tho
proposed legislation, so Chairman
Payne concluded that It would have
easy sailing through the house, which
turned out to bo a f,nd mistake oti the
part of the Honorable Sercno. He
arose one ipnnilng with an expansive
smile on his countenance nnd proceed
ed to bhtndfy call the bill up. Thomas
politely asked him for a few moments
In which to express his disapproval,
which Brother Payne bluntly and curt
ly refused. Mistake No. 2 on his part.
The refusal got Thomas' lighting blood
up, and he began a light which ended In
a signal triumph for him. He spoke
during the time he had in lils own
rigUt. YUiUe he was speaking ills
friends were busy aligning members,
und when the vote was taken he won
by a large majority and was the recipi
ent of numerous congratulations. By
making his successful light lie. took a
long step upward and forward in the
house, for there, as elsewhere, nothing
succeeds like success. The fact that
he had locked horns with and vanquish
ed the Republican door leader was a
big feather In bis enp, but the fact that
he had rolled the Republican leader,
who was supported by the entire ways
and means committee, was a feather
of unusual prnmrtlous.
The Speakership and the Presidency,
The esleeni'.'d Philadelphia Inquirer
lu an article about tho death of ox
fcpeakcr David It. IIenden,ou of Iowa
and his caicer falls inlo the error of
saying, -it is a curious ract that no
speaker has -over .been elected presi
dent, although many have aspired to
the honor." The trouble with that
statement is that It Is not true, for
James Knoc "Polk of Tennessee was
lirst speaker und then president. Ills
career was evidently not familiar to
the writer of the'lnqulrer editorial. It
Is a curious ract, however, that only
one speaker became president and only
one reached the vice presidency"; .Schuy
ler Carfax. Really the speakership ja
the second olllco lu power In our gov
ernmental system, Especially lias that
been true in the last llfteou yeurs. At
llrst our speuker exercised much tho
sumo functions us the speaker of the
house of commons, thoso of n mod

Just what there Is about the speaker

Wall Street In the Dumps.
Accordlug to Henry Clews "fc Co..
bankers, Wall street is not happy. On
the contrary, the street Is dumpy and
has'a ease of niulagrubs, In their lira!
circular letter they say:
The .speculative situation falls to show
any Impiovement. T-hcro has beea a no
ticeable dwindling of upmbers hi the bull
ranks and u waning eottrngc01l the pat t
of those who hnvo 'been conspicuous on
that sldo of the market. The Impression
that the top wave In tho securities mar
ket has been i cached, for some time to
come lit least, Is steadily growing, nnd
from day to day It becomes Increasingly
evident that the technical situation has
been materially weakened by liquidation
quietly effected when tho market was al
Its best la December and January. As
prices decline thero Is a singular absence
of Insldo support, even fiom the promi
nent leuders or Insiders who are populurly
supposed to be on the bull sldo of tho
market. As a matter of fact, many of
theee gentlemen aie convinced that the
market must seek a lower level before'
imy substantial Inducements can be found
for reinvestment or for the conducting of
a fresh bull campaign.
At tho moment the market Is suffering
somewhat from .absenteeism, ii large
number ot wealthy operators taking the
respite from business responsibilities
which Is becoming so customary at ihe
end of tho winter. The absentee list,
moreover, has been considerably swelled
by the quiet disappearance of numerous
Individuals who wish to avoid testifying
before tho various Investigating commit
tees, which are not confined to New York
alone, but are at work in Washington nnd
other political centers. It is unnecessary
to cite the friction and animosity which
have been created by the Insurance inves
tigation, none ot which was anticipated
In tlie remotest degreo a year ago. No
body foresaw tho consequences ot dis
putes which began in the Eqiiltablo last
summer, and, while tlie results eventually
are certain to be beneficial to tho public
and will unquestionably raise manageilal
standaids, still the Intervening Period of
agitation nnd readjustment is a. disturb
ing one, Impairing confidence temporarily
nnd necessarily having an adverse effect
in higher financial circles. Fortunately
our large corporations will lu future ba
conducted upon more rigid lines, and tho
mesalliances between our big corporations
and the unscrupulous politician should
become more dlfllcult of accomplishment
und less likely to be repeated. Already
our lurge Insurance companies, upon
which great bankers have frequently
largely depended In their syndicate oper-ations.-liavc
-withdrawn for good'from all
transactions ot tnaTcharaeter. In future
these great syndicates will huve- to look
inreet to Individual purchasers for their
market and will lack the support of these
great organizations, which has always
uccu iiiguiy important in times of sticss.
The effctrr will probably bo to make such
syndlcntes more careful in their futuie
commitments, a chaage that will trove
benencjal and which has fortunately
taken place during a favorable period.
In a line burst of eloquence Edmund
Burke said, "Tho age of chivalry is
gone!" If Tom Moore could revisit
the glimpses of the moon, no doubt he
would say, "Tho age of poetry Is gone!"
us he reflected on the fact that a trol
ley line Is ubout lo bchullt through the
Vale of Cashmere, which ho embalmed
in Immortal verse. That's nearly as
Iconoclastic n performance as building
railroads Into Jerusalem, Joppa and"
Damascus., Wouldn't It Jar you to
have to hear a braketnan yell: "Mount
of Olives!" "Nazareth!" or "(Jethsem

there Is no guessing how-fur he will go

Origin' of Doily.
The word "doily" is used con
stantly, and yet few know the quaint
etory of its origin. Jn the time of
William the Norman, Uohert d'Oy
Icy was ono of his followers, and
vainnble lands at Hook Norton, in
Oxfordshire, were granted him upon
u curious condition. Each year at
tho feast dC St. Michael he was to
"muko'toudcr of a linen tablecloth
worth 3 English shillings;" As they
went to roynlty, the ladies of the
D'Oyley family took great pride in
embroidering tho "quitrent cloths,"
as they were termed, nnd in conse
quence un art needlework collection
of great beauty was accumulated by
these annual tributes. They did
eervieo for elate occasions in Wil
liam the Norman's household and,
very naturally, were called the
"U'Uyiey linen."
