EXIT "MY LORD ROSCOE!"
HE RESIGNS IN A PET, AND
TAKES HIS SHADOW
Senator Conkling has furnished
the newspapers a first-class sensa
tion this week, by resigning his seat
in the Senate last Monday, in which
brand-new feat of posturiDg he was
at once imitated by his colleague,
Mr. Piatt, who always follows in his
master's footsteps as obsequiously as
his shadow. Of course the country
is profoundly impressed with this
remarkable performance of political
"Hari-Kari" by Mr. Conkling, and is
holding its breath to see what will

THE VERY LATEST!
We stop the press to announce that
nobody else was hurt! Drive on,
lames A. G.! "Ta, ta, Conkey dear!''
Gov. Foster and the Temperance.
Mr. C. L. Tambling, of Oberlin, O.
sends ns a postal card and a circular,
charging that Gov. Foster is a "hail
fellow, well met!" in every saloon in
the State, and that he gave a saloon
keeper named Lewis Faetb, in New
Philadelphia, (whoso affidavit is giv
en) $50 "to treat the boys," in 1878,
when the Governor ran for Congress.
Now, we know nothing about Mr.
Tambling, but we ore very sure that
he is either grossly mistaken, or else
he has willfully misrepresented Gov.
Foster. We have tho most satisfac
tory proof that he is not a frequent
er of saloons, but is a strictly tempe
rate man, though perhaps not a total
abstainer, and therefore we cannot
believe him guilty of the conduct
with which ho i3 charged. We also
know that he was warmly in favor of
the Tyler-Jones amendments to the
Constitution, submitting the whole
liquor question to the people, and al
lowing them to choose Prohibition,
Local Option or License, and put it
in the Constitution. This was the
most sensible and practical Temper
ance measure before the late Legis
lature. It passed the House by an
overwhelming majority, and failed in
the Senate only because one solitary
Democratic vote was needed to make
the neeessary three-fifths majority,
and that one indispatsalile Democra
tic vote icas not to be had every
Dciiiorrat voting XO!
Yet we presume v.-2 are not w rong
in inferring from Mr. Tamtiirg's ;
card and circular, that he is anxious j
to defeat Gov. Foster and the Re
publican party next fuil, although
nine-tenths of tho republicans in
the Legislature voted fur Temperance I
while nine-tenths of the Democrats
voted Bteudily against ii! lie ao doubt
favors an independent Temperance
party, the certain result of which
would be to throw ti e next Legisla
ture into tho h'.nd.s of this same
Democratic party, which dofc-ated the
Tyler Jones aairndments, and which
by it lact National and State plat
forms stand openly pledged against
"sumptuary laws," that ia, all laws
prohibiting the liquor traffic.
Mr. Tambling should have the in-
tel;ence to know tjmt the only hope
for more efficient Temperance legis-
lition is in the Republican party,
which, we trust, will be ready to take
step in advance on this great ques-.
tion, at tbe approaching State Con-;
vpnfirin. that will entitle it to the con-
ence an,j 6Upp0rt of every reason-'

Committee, the next Republican
State Convention will bo held in the
city of Cleveland, on Wednesday,
the 8th day of June, 1881.
The Convention wiM nominr.te
Member of the Bonrd of Public
We recommend that efforts be
made to secure a largo attendance
at the meetings to appoint delegates,
so that the people shall be fairly
represented in the State Convention,
that gentlemen be not chosen as dele
gates unless it be certain that they
will attend, and that, as far as prac
ticable, the County Central Commit
tees be appointed at the same time
that delegates are chosen, if this has
not already been done.
The basis of representation in the
Convention will be one delegate to
every five hundred votes cast for
James A. Garfield for President of
the United States in 1880 and one
additional delegate for any fraction
of two hundred and fifty votes and
upward, in each county.
The following table shows the
vote cast in the 7th District for
James A. Garfield for President, and
the number of delegates to which
each county will be entitled, viz :
The total vote iD the State was
375,048, and the number of dele
gates will be 746.

Mr. Job E. Owens, an old and
prominent business man of Hamil
ton, whom we knew well 30 years
ago, committed suicide on the 27th
ult. by shooting himself with a pis
tol. He was a few years ago senior
partner of the well known manufac
turing firm of Owens, Lane & Dyer,
whose steam threshers were sold all
over the country. A singular fact
connected with the affair is that Mr.
Dyer, another of the firm, ended
his life the same way a fewyears ago.
Mr. Owens was wealthy, and no cause
is known for his suicide, which was
evidently planned with deliberation
and not the result of a sudden im
pulse. He was generally liked, and
will bo greatly missed in the busi
ness circles of Hamilton.

JUDGE BEN FORAKER FOR
Hon. J. B. Foraker, Judge of the
Supreme Court of Cincinnati, whom
old Highland is proud to claim as
one of her Bons, is prominently men
tioned as the Republican candidate
for Lieut. Governor, since General
Hickenlooper has declined a re-election.
Should Governor Foster be
re-nominated, of which there is
scarcely a doubt, Judge Foraker is
in just the right locality for the sec
ond position on the ticket, and would
emphatically be "the right man in the
right place." Ho would carry Ham
ilton county by a big majority, and
add strength to the ticket all over
the State. The Wilmington Journal
With Charley Foster aa the Re
publican candidate for Governor,
of Ohio, and Judge J. B. Foraker
for Lieut. Governor, the Republicans
can carry the State. The former
can look after the organization out
side of Hamilton county and the lat
ter will make it lively in Cincinnati.
Foster and Foraker would make a
ticket that would meet our views ex
actly. The Troy Union says :
Judge J. B. Foraker, of Cincinnati,
is favorably named for Lieutenant
Governor. He is regarded as an ex
cellent man by all who know him.

Hon. M. J, Williams, of Washing

requested by the Republican mem
bers of the Fayette county bar to
allow his name to be presented to

a'candidate for Supreme Judge. Mr.
Williams is one of the ablest mem-1

and his nomination would, we doubt
not, be heartily supported by the
delegates from this and the adjoin

legal knowledge and the purity of
character, which eminently qualify
him for the position.
