Wm. F. Hathaway, the man at the head
of the delegation from Washington town

day, (Tuesday), carried the stars and
stripes. Hathaway was not quite so pa
triotic during the war, when he ran away
to Canada and sought protection under the
British flag, to keep from being drafted.
That is in keeping, however, with the
Democratic party. They are very loyal in
time of peace, but as a party, they didn't
fight to save the Union.
The Democratic procession to-day
(Tuesday), looked a good deal like tbey
did during the war, when they were clamoring
for peace on any terms. There was
an absenca, however, of the strings of but

There were no banners carried by the girls
with "Save us from nigger husbands," bla
zoned on them. With these slight differ
ence the string of wagons Looked just like
it need to.

Once more we say, remember to vote early,
and see that your neighbors do likewise,
and we will carry the county by 200 ma

To Business Men.
The election is of more importance to
business men than any other class of peo
ple, as the election of Hancock would
jeopardise business interests, and might
bring financial disaster to the country.
It is acknowledged on all hands that the
October elections in Ohio and Indiana will
have a great effect on the contest in No
vember and it, is therefore of the greatest
importance that we carry Ohio by as large
a majority as possible next Tuesday. The
Republican business men ean do much to
increase our majority, by leaving their
stores and places of business and turning
out to the polls, to work for the Repub
lican ticket Be at the polls when they
are opened, and remain there during the
day, doing everything in your power to
make a Bepublican vote. Think of the
moral effect it would have on the floating
and doubtful voters, to see 200 of our
best business men at the polls on the
daj of the election. Basin ess men, you
have it in your power to do much good on
that day, and is it not your duty to do it ?
You did it in 1863, and it is just as im
portant that yon do it next Tuesd ay.
Ashamed of Leedom.
Here is what an Adams county paper,
the New Era, has to say ot Leedom, the
Democratic candidate for Congress :
The Democratic managers are keeping
Leedom out of sight as much as possible.
He has filled a few appointments for
speeches in the backwoods, but his elo

know that he is considered the "most fit-
tenest" man for Congress among the deni
zens of the "boot leg" in Brown county.

Last year you increased your majority,
and the same effort on election day this
year will give a further increase. Let
every individual Republican consider
himself a committee of one, to see that our
vote is brought out Go to the polls early,
and see that your Republican neighbor
does likewise. Shall your 02 majority of
last vesr be made 70 ou Tuesday ? 'Tis
for you to decide.
REPUBLICANS OF CLAY,
What Republican can forget your gallant
work last fall, and your glorious majority
of 42 T The memories of your brave boys,
killed by rebel bullets, will ever keep alive
your Republican principles. The Demo
crats expect gains in Clay. Tbey hope to
make votes by trading, and other means
known to themselves. We say, Stand to
your colors! Vote your ticket clean and
straight, and give it 50 majority. You
can, if yon will.
REPUBLICANS OF CONCORD,
You did a good work last year. You made
Concord Republican, and your friends look
to you to keep it so. Get out every vote-
Give Tuesday to the work of increasing
your majority, and all will be well. You
have a reliable majority, and all that is
needed is to get your men to the polls.
Have them there early.
REPUBLICANS OF DODSON,
Remember your votes were never of more
importance than now. Although in a mi
nority in your township, a full vote will
ensure the county and State to the Repub
licans. The Democrats cannot get their
majority of last year, if you work faith
fully and get out every Republican voter.
Examine your lists at 2 o'clock, and if
any Republican has not voted , Bee to it and
get him to the polls. Let the gallant
spirit that has animated you in the past
inspire you to better work than ever on
Tuesday. Get out your full vote, and all
REPUBLICANS OF FAIRFIELD,
The glorious majorities you have given in
the past are the pride of the Republicans
of Old Highland. This year we believe
you are more eager than ever for the con
test Owing to the size of your township,
it will take hard and persistent work to
get your vote all out It can be done, and
never since the Vallandigham campaign
was it of more importance -that it should
be done. Let every Republican who
reads this make it a personal matter to see
to it that every Republican voter in his
eighborhood goes to the polls. Do this
and your majority cannot be less than 225.
Our friends look anxiously to you.
REPUELICAN8 OF HAMER,
You are "a trusty band, few, but undis
mayed," and deserving of all honor. Last
year you made a gain of 12 votes. This
year you can hold your own and do better
still. All that is necessary is that you
ive yourselves up to the work on Tues
ay. The large majority against you has
never deterred you from your duty. A
Republican vote in Hamer is worth as
much as one- in Fairfield. Make it a point
to vote early, and then go after those that
may be dilatory. Let no Republican vote
be lost in Hamer.
REPUBLICANS OF JACKSON,
Although fighting in a minority, you made
gain last year, which should incite you
to renewed effort now. All that is neces
sary is that every Republican should con
sider it his personal duty on election day,
to work to get out a full vote. Never was
single vote of more importance than now.

Highland so reliably Republican that lit
tle work will be needed to keep it so.
Don't let the grass grovr nnder your feet
on Tuesday. See to it that no Republican
vote is lost
REPUBLICANS OF LIBERTY,
Your glorious majority last year of 234
was a startler to the Democrats. Let us
show our friends all over the county that
we have not only held our own, but made
gains since then. In this central stronghold
of Republicanism, our flag must never be
lowered. Let us each one make it our
business to see that a full vote is brought
out in each precinct. The right kind of
work on Tuesday will make our majority
not less than 250. Let us not be remiss in
our duty, but do ail that we caa to help
our committees bring out a full vote. In
that lies our success. We send greeting to
our friends in the county, and promise a
good account from old Liberty.
REPUBLICANS OF MADISON,
We have confidence that all will be right
in your tp. The spirit and interest you
have already shown prove that you are
awake and aroused. You know the im
portance of a full vote, and will spare no
exertion to get out. An even 200 major
ity would be glorious, and we believe you
can give it It will take faithful work on
election day, but this you can and will do,
You realize the importance of it, and no
more need be said.
REPUBLICANS OF MARSHALL,
Your friends look for a gain in Marshall
this year. By your earnest and persistent
efforts in the past you have not only held
your own, but last year made a small gain.
Leave nothing undone to honorably in
crease your vote. See to it that every Re
publican is brought to the polls. Impress
upon the lukewarm the importance of the
contest, and the value of a single vote.
Let no Republican vote be lost in Marshall.
REPUBLICANS OF NEW MARKET,
You too are in the minority, but you
made a gain last year, by your earnest and
faithful work. Your friends remember
this, and are looking for still better things
this year. It would be glory enough for
one day if you still further reduce the
majority against you. It can be done by
a little hard work and personal sacrifice
on election day. Be not satisfied merely
to cast your own vote, but be sure that
every other Republican has voted by 2
o'clock. If not, go after those who have
not reported at the polls.
REPUBLICANS OF PAINT,
We believe you realize the importance of
a Republican victory on Tuesday. The
Democrats will all be at the polls, but if
the Republicans are there also, the county
will be safe. Your vote can all be brought
out, if you so will it. It will take work
and self-denial on election day to do this,
but we believe you will cheerfully do
your best. A majority of 70 would be a
grand tribute to the memories of the sol
diers of your township, who sacrificed
their lives, fighting against the "solid

We know you will do your duty.
REPUBLICANS OF SALEM,
We believe you are ready for the fight
Tuesday. You will work all the harder,
knowing the importance of this election,
Although the majority in your township
against you is large, every vote you
it counts as much as if you had
majority. The Democrats look for
in Salem, but if yon do your whole
they will be disappointed. Listen to
overtures from the enemy, but do yonr
thoroughly and faithfully. Your princl
pies are on trial as they never were before,
and on your faithful work on election
depends the decision. Every vote you
duce the Democratic majority, will be
source of congratulation when the battl
is fought and won.
REPUBLICANS OF UNION,
The gain you made last year was a
matter for congratulation. It is claimed
by Democrats that you cannot do the
thing again. It only remains for you
show on Tuesday what you can do when
thoroughly aroused. Let that day's
be the best you have ever done. The
earnest work this year as last will show

effort. The same kind of work this year
will tell a better story. Give your time
and work on Tuesday to the cause

REPUBLICANS OF WHITEOAK,
You too made a gratifying gain last year.
There is no doubt that you can do better
this year if you can get every Republican
voter to the polls. It will take work and
trouble on election day to do this, but
your work may depend the result in the
county. Let every true Republican deter
mine to give one earnest day's work for
the success of his principles. Bring out
the lukewarm, and go after ; those; who
would otherwise stay away. Faithful
persistent work on election day will show
result of which you will be proud.
REPUBLICANS OF HIGHLAND, ONE
AND ALL I
Do you realize the importance of the work
to be done on Tuesday ? Never since the
Vallandigham campaign of 1S63 have
greater interests been at stake than are volved
in this campaign. You met the
"Solid South" then, not only with the
bayonet, but the ballot. You defeated
them then, both in the field and at the
polls. The contest is now at the ballot
box. The victory can only be won by labor
and sacrifice. A failure to do your duty
on Tuesday will be a source of life-long
regret All that is needed is for every Re
publican to do what he can. Don't wait
for others, but put your own shoulder
the wheel. Be vigilant and active. Omit
no honorable exertion to gain a vote for
your party and its principles. Make it
point to see to it that every Republican
your neighborhood votes on Tuesday.
DONT DEPEND ON YOUR" COMMIT
TEES. BUT DO IT YOURSELF, AND
IT WILL SURELY BE DONE. "
CLAIMING THAT MADISON TOWNSHIP
Our Democratic friend, Ed. Dines,
Greenfield, was in the city last week, on
mission, and that mission was to furnish
the Central Committee with the polling
of Madison township. Now, generally
speaking, Ed. Dines is a smart fellow, bat
when he gets into politics. he is a little
wild, so to speak, and his calculations run
away with him. To prove this assertion,
we will tell you what he said. We asked
him what majority his polling gave Mad
ison'when he straightened himself, and re
plied, "Eleven Democratic." We asked
him where he got the figures, and he said
from the Republican headquarters. Mr.
Dines didn't want to wager anything
that polling, which proved that he was
playing a little game of bluff. That is
game that the Democrats are playing
over the county, but it don't frighten
Republicans any, and it won't win. 3 Madi

who would make such an assertion is sure
ly off his base, and is a fit subject for
inquest of lunacy. On a full vote, High
land county has not gone Democratic
since the war, and where the 300 Demo
cratic majority is coming from this
we are unable to see. Kirby, where
your 300 Democratic majority when
ran against Judge Gardner?
"Get the Bulge on Them."
This is the injunction of a Democratic
leader to the Township committees for
tion day. It means, go to the polls
stay all day, boast, Bwagger, curse,
bloviate, and claim everything exulting
ly. Republicans must meet such
ductjfirmly and courageously. Stand
ground, see that your men vote, and
nothing undone to protect them in
rights. The Democratic campaign id
gressive, ana must oe met win tue
determined spirit with which the cohorts
of the Solid South were met on many
bloody field of battle.
"Bulling it Through."
Part of the policy of the Democratic
gressive campaign will be on election
"to," as they say, "bull things through."
I This means by bluster and brag to
things tneir own way. lnis often
ceeds in a Democratic Convention, but
won't win at the polls. The Republicans
are determined this year to assert
rights and to have every vote that
fully belongs to them polled. They
aot be bluffed, bullied, or scared from
discharge of their whole duty on Tuesday,

seated in a magnificent chariot, which was
rawn by lourteen thoroughbred horses, all
prettily plumed ; following this appeared
cavalcade of richly robed processionists,
mounted upon handsome horses. The
great cages, containing the wonderful Hip
popotamus, the six-ton Rhinoceros, the
Giraffe, and the tank with sea-lions fol
lowed, and then a realistic scene, entitled
the "Grand Bashaw and His Court," was

THE CAR OF FREEDOM,
illustrating religion, law, victory and peace,
next appeared, followed by a monster
steam orchestrion, whose thundering tones
could be heard all over the city. A long
line of animal cages, magnificently deco
