Adopted by the Ohio State Republican
Convention, June 21, 1871.
Resolved, by the Republicans of Ohio
in Convention assembled, as follows :
1. The Republican Party of the Unit
ed States may well challenge the admi
ration and confidence of the country for
its patriotism, courage tind wisdom in
preserving the Union of the States; for
its justice, firmness and magnanimity
in establishing for all the people, liberty
And equality before the li w ; for its grat
itude and generous provision for the na
tional defenders and pensioners ; for its
inviolate honor and good faith toward
the national creditors ; and, generally,
for its successful administration of pub
lic affairs in peace as well as in war
2. We not only recognize the thir
teenth, fourteenth and fifteenth amend
ments to the Constitution of the United
States as accomplished facts, but, also,
as Just, wise and valid articles of organic
law, to be jealously defended and enforc
ed as parts of the Constitution, now,
henceforth and forever.
3. As it will be necessary and desira
ble to obtain from duties on imports a
large portion of the revenues needed to
defray the expenses of the government,
to pay the interest on the national debt
and the principal as it matures, such du
ties should be so adjusted as not to prej
udice, but promote the interests of ev
ery section and branch of industry as
far as may be possible.
4. The present administration of the
National Government has vindicated its
Tight to the continued confidenoe of the
people. Its success has been illustrated
In the impartial execution of the laws ;
In its faithfulness, honesty and eoonomy
In the collection of publio revenues, and
in the expenses of the government : so
that while taxation has been reduced to
the extent of one hundred millions of
dollars per year, the national debt has
been liquidated to the amount of over
two hundred and thirty millions a re
duction unparalleled in history. The ad
ministration has been equally successful
in the management of our foreign rela
tions, and has achieved imperishable
honor in the settlement of our differ
ences with Great Britain, upon terms
creditable to both countries, as embod
ied In the Treaty of Washington, The
head of an administration thus distin
guished by success and statesmanship
is justly entitled to be regarded as a
wise and careful civil magistrate, and
his uniform deference to publio senti
ment, shows him to be one whom the
country may trust, having fully re
deemed the pledge he made before en
tering upon the duties of Chief Magis
trate, that be would have no policy of
his own to enforoe against the will of
5. We repeat our condemnation of
the policy of subsidies of public lands
to corporations and monopolies; and
having originated the policy of granting
homesteads to actual settlers, we declare
that the public domain should be kept
for our laboring population.
6. We are in favor of the adoption of
a thorough system of civil service re
form, and we indorse heartily the action
of President Grant in selecting the Com
missioners under the recent so called
civil service act.
7. We unite with our fellow citizens
in every portion of the Union in the
hope that the enmities and resentments
of the war may be speedily ended, and
that the day may soon come when in
every State every citizen may be safe in
life, person, property and civil rights,
and may have the equal protection of
the laws, so that no man who was loyal
to the Union during the great struggle,
may for that reason be the viotim of
persecution, outrage and assassination,
and so that some encouragement may
be offered for the removal in all proper
oases of political disabilities imposed
for participation in tbe rebellion.
8. We recommend the calling of a
tonventioo to amend the Constitution of
9. We express our unqualified ap
proval of the administration of our pre
ent State executive, Gov. R. B. Hayes,
and assure him that our verdict la

Hon. John L. Hughes.
His Record on the Constitutional
He Opposes both the 14th and
And Presents an Insulting Protest
against the 15th Amendment,
which the House Refuses
Hon. J. L. Hughes, tbe Representative
of this county in the Legislature for the
last four years, is again brought forward
by his party as a candidate for re-election.
It is proper, therefore, that the
people should be reminded of the fact,
that he strenuously opposed the adop
tion of tbe 14th and 15th Amendments
to tbe Constitution, and especially dis
tinguished himself by his bitter and un
yielding hostility to the latter measure,
by which the right of suffrage was con
ferred on tbe colored citizens of the na
tion. At the first session after his election
that is, in January, 186S, the Democrat
ic party found itself in a majority in
both Houses, for the first time in ten
years, a result which was brought about
by the proposed Suffrage Amendment to
tbe Constitution of tbe State, which wis
the main Issue in the election of 186T,
being advocated by the Republican
and opposed by the Democrats. Tie
strong prejudices then existing against
Negro Suffrage, caused the defeat of tbe
Republicans in the Legislature, though
they carried their candidate for Govern
or by a small majority.
On the very first day of the session of
the new Legislature, one of the Demo
cratic members of the House introduced
a joint resolution to rescind the resolu
tion adopted the previous year, by the
Republican Legislature, ratifying the
14th Amendment to the Constitution.
This rescinding resolution attempted to
nullify the ratification of that Amend
meat by the State of Ohio, although the
ratification resolutions bad been filed in
the archives of the Government at
Washington, and the act of ratification
was complete and final, as far as Ohio
was concerned. The subject, therefore,
could not properly be introduced again
into the Legislature, unless by Congress
re-submitting the Amendment to the sev.
eral States, which was never proposed
or thought of. But such was tbe rabid
hatred of the negro at that time, on the
part of our Democratio brethren, who
have so recently learned to recognize
him as "a man and a brother," as well
as a voter, that they determined, if pos
sible, to defeat the 14th Amendment,
which merely recognizes the colored
people as citizens of the United States,
entitled to the equal protection of the
laws, and to all the civil rights and im
munities of white citizens, except the
right of suffrage.
Tbe rescinding resolutions passed the
House by a strict party vote on Satur
day, January 11th, 1868, being tbe first
week of the session. Our Representa
tive, Mr. Hughes, took an active part iu
support of the resolutions, and voted for
hem on their final passage. He thus
stands clearly on the record as opposed
to granting the equal protection of the
laws to colored people.
But this is not all. The 14th Amend
ment also provides that if any State
should deny to colored male citizens of
lawful age the right to vote for Federal
and State officers, then the number of
Representatives in Congress from such
State should be reduced in tbe same
proportion as the number of colored
male citizens thus disfranchised might
bear to the whole population. This was
simply savinir that if anv State refused
to let colored men vote, they'should not
be counted in making up the basis of
representation in Congress. Was not
this fair and just? Yet Mr. Hughes
voted against it, by voting to rescind the
ratification of tbe Amendment.
The Amendment further provides
that no rebel who had violated an offi
cial oath to support the Constitution of
the United States, should ever be eligible
to the Presidency, or to Congress, or
any office, civil or military, of the U.
States, or of any State. What loyal
man could object to this provision T It
excludes no one from office, remember,
except rebels who had sworn to obey the
Constitution and laws of the U. States,
and then perjured themselves by rebel
ling against them ! Yet Mr. Hughes
voted against even this mild and tender
punishment of perjured rebels !
But furthermore. The 14th Amend
ment provides that the publio debt of
the U. States, including the debt incur
red in suppressing the rebellion, and for
the payment of bounties and pensions
to Union soldiers and sailor, shall
never be repudiated or questioned, and
that neither the U. States nor any Stale
Bhall ever assume any portion of tbe
rebel war debt, or pay any claim for
slaves emancipated by the war.
What objection could any loyal man
have to that provision? Is it not
right, just and proper ? Not so thought
Mr. Hughes, for he voted to rescind it
after it had been solemnly and formally
ratified by the preceding Legislature of
The last section of the Amendment
simply gives Congress the power to en
force its provisions by appropriate legis
lation. Here, then, we see the course pursued
by Mr. Hughes, while representing the
people of this county in the highest
council of the State. He opposed grant
ing to all men equality before the law ;
yet he claims to be a Democrat. He op
posed the disqualifying of perjured re
bels from holding office ; opposed the re
duction of the number of representa
tives in Congress from States which re
fused to let their colored citizens vote ;
and opposed the provision declaring
sacred tbe public debt incurred for the
preservation of the Union, and forbid
ding the payment of the rebel debt.
Such is a part of the record of the
Democratic candidate for Representa
tive, who is now before the people of
this county, asking them to re-elect
him. If he could have had his way, '
the 14th Amendment, whose wise and
just provisions have been set forth!
above, would never have become a part
of tbe Federal Constitution, and the re
sults of the war would not have been
secured as they now are, beyond the
possibility of repeal, by being perma
nently fixed and engrafted in the funda
mental law of the land.
In another article we shall further ex
amine Mr. Hughes' record, and show
that in the last Legislature, where the
Republicans bad a smHil majority, he
opposed tbe adoption of the 15th Amend
ment, giving colored men the right of
suffrage, and presented a protest against
its ratification, couched in such insult
ing langUHge, that the House refused to
allow it to be entered on the journal.
Let no Republican, with these fact
before him, so far forget his principles,
as to be persuaded, by any consideration,
to endorse tbe course of such a man, by
giving him his vote.
Mr. Metcalf Declines the "Prohibition"
County Treasurer—Mr. Robinson
Declines the Nomination
GREENFIELD, O., Sept. 16, 1871.
Mb. Editor : In tho last issna of
the "News," I notice the report of
the proceedings of the "Prohibition"
Convention (?) which met in your
place on tbe 9lh inst.
I find that said Convention adopt
ed certain preambles and resolutions,
among which is the following, vii :
"That we this day organize a Pro
hibition Party in Highland county,
and make such nominations for of
fices to be filled at the coming elec
tion, as the Convention may select."
In accordance with the above reso
lution, tbe Convention proceeded to
nominate a District and County
ticket, and to my great surprise I
find mvself brought out as candidate
I was aware that a call had been
made for a Convention, and one' of
tbe leaders in tho movement invited
me to be present, but I made no
promise. I was not consulted as to
whether my name might or might
not be used in the Convention, for
any office, and bad I been so con
sulted, I 6hould have positively re
fused. While I thank the gentlemen of
the Convention for the confi
dence they have in me, as a Tem
perance man, I cannot endorse all
their preambles and resolutions, and
therefore respectfully, but positively
decline the nomination,
There is no difference between the
gentlemen and myself, so far as the
object to be obtained ia concerned,
but in the mode of its accomplish
ment! we are widely apart,
I am for prohibition. I hate with
perfect hatred the traffic in intoxica
ting liquors. I look upon it as a
great crime. I place it side by side
with murder, and all the damnable
crimes known in the great cata
logue ; and the man, be he manufac
turer, or be who peddlea it out by
the drink to his fellow-men, is a
criminal, and as God will hold him
responsible and punish him for tho
crime, so ought he to bo held re
sponsible too, and punished by the
laws of the land ; and in order to
effectually suppress the traffic 1
would go so far as to vote for a law
that would hang the whisky seller,
who furnished the liquor that caused
the victim to take tho life of his
fellow. I would vote for a law that
would make the whisky seller a
party to all the crimes committed
by the drinker, and mete out to
to both the same punishment.
But I do not believe the suppres
sion of tbe traffic can bo accomplish
ed by a third parti, A party based
on a tingle moral issue, however
great, cannot hope for success.
Only a small faction of tho whole
number of voters wold identify
themselves with such party, and
the result would be, not only defeat
to the party itself, but would bring
disaster to the cause for which they
would labor. I
While I am a prohibitionist, at
the samo time I am a Republican
I cant my first vote for a Republican,
and ever since been identified with
the party, aod can see no reason
why I should now withdraw from
I love and honor the party that
settled the question whether the
Union should be dissevered and
broken into fragments or remain
"one and indispensible" for ever
I honor the party that unfurled the
old flag and carried it through the
long struggle, and brought it out
without one missing star to mar its
beauty. I honor the party that gave
liberty the millions of bondmon in
the South, and then, after liberty
gave them the right of suffrage;
gave them a voice in making the
laws by which they are to be gov
Tbe Republican party has always
been on the side of right, and if any
thing is accomplished for Temper
ance if the traffic is suppressed, it
must be through and by this party,
which has already accomplished so
There is now a great Temperance
element in the party, and it is be
coming stronger every day, and it
may make its power felt for good if
Only let the firm and true friends
of Temperance take a bold stand,
and publish to tbe world that they
have resolved to vote for no man for
any office, great or small, who uses
intoxicating liquor as a beverage
himself, or who will lend his aid or
influence to the manufacture, sale
or use of the same, and the party
in its Conventions will soon
learn that the Temperance men
have rights that must be respected,
and that in order to save defoal, it
must nominate true and tried Tern
perance men for office.
I am not in favor of the third
party movement, anywhere, much
less in our own county. The Re
publican party at the late pri
mary election, showed that they
were on the side of Temperance and
right, by selecting men to fill the
various offices of the county, who
are (as I am informed by those in
whom 1 have implicit confidence)
as strictly temperate as the gentle
men of the "Prohibition Conven
tion" or their candidates, and if this
be true, I hold the third party
movemeut to be worse than folly.
I am satisfied that, if Mr. Wicker-
ham is elected to the Legislature and
bill is presented for the repeal of
the law making the whisky-seller
responsible for his acts, the law that
gives the wife and children of the
drunkard the right to prosecute and
collect damage from bim who
steals their bread he would record
his vote as against the repeal.
If Mr. Troth is elected as Prose
cuting Attorney, I am satisfied he
will not make whisky sellers his
boon companions, neither will he,
when criminal prosecutions under
the present liquor laws of the State
are brought iuto Court, treat them
with contempt, and throw them out
without trial, as has been done in
many instances. Mr. Troth will
do his duty a3 a Temperance man,
as well as a prosecutor of all the
laws of the State. What more can
the gentlemen ask for?
If Mr. Glenn was not a friend of
Temperance he could not get my
vote, and I would go still further
and allow my name to be used, not
by a third party, but as au inde
pendent candidate for Treasurer ;
but this is not true, and therefore
allow me to say in conclusion, that
am perfectly satisfied with the Re
publican County ticket, and shall
make an effort to have every man on
it elected. J. S. METCALF.
P. S. Mr. James Robinson de
sires me to say that he dpclines the
nomination for Senator by the Pro
hibition Party. J. S. M.

A visit to Huntington last week
disclosed to us the rapid building
up of the new city. Hundreds of
men are at work grading the streets
and wharfs. A large number were
laying track, switches, &e., for the
C. A O. R. R. About 300 men were
at work on the round house and
everything indicated vigor and en

which will be in ten days hence.

Ross and Highland will both bo carried,
and our Republican friends in Belmont
claim to have a sure thing on that coun
ty. So, from all quarters, we have
cheering news. The Democracy are ev
erywhere disheartened. They don't
know who they have for candidate to
day, nor who to hope for to-morrow.
JBSTHighland county is about a
lie between two parties, in ordinary
contests, but the news comes from
up there that Putnam will be beaten
three hundred voles. The Whisky
Ring doesn't own the Democratic
party in Highland any more than it
does in Ross ; and we venture the
assertion that both the Ring and its
candidate will get such a back-se'
in the two counties that it will be a
little more modest in its demands
hereafter. Half starved wives and
ragged children are going to be giv

members can fell out to some one

As far as we can loarn, the infor

to the feeling of the Guthrie men in

Mr. Putnam was a gross outrage
on the established usage of both
parties, by which Highland was
clearly entitled to the candidate, the

of the Ross county Whisky Ring.
