Mr. McDougal's UUImatnm.
The Honorable Thomas McDougal, of
Cincinnati, has flooded tlio State ol Ohio
with copies of a circular addressed to
Lthe Hamilton county delegation in the
nW Tiilature. one of which the
News Herald acknowledges the honor
ol receiving.

and defeated him" In his last campaign
but should Sherman be selected as his
own successor the next nominee for tho
Presidency-even though it be John
Sherman himself-will receive tho solid,
earnest, enthusiastic support of every
Foraker man in Ohio.
But the ex-Governor's friends are not
poing to bo bullied. Too many of them
have seen big guns, heard bullets hum
and shells shriek to be scared now by a
stuffed club. Mr. McDougal's threat
will only make thorn "close up" their

yet ho is eight years older than was
Sherman when he first entered the Sen
ate and with far more experience in
public affaire. Another great argument
is that he was defented in his candidacy
for the Governorship two years since?,
but Sherman's friends should be the last
to raise that cry as they know tdo well 'how
it was done.
It is hard that we who favor Foraker
should be compelled to keep silent or
Bay nice things all the time, although
the opposition give vent to all their
venom. The hardest duty of a Eoldier
is to stand in lino under fire. These are
our order and we have obeyed, but

to make a few lemarks.
A few years ago a law was enacted
called the "Arrears of Pensions Law."
By its terms all old soldiers who applied
before the 20th day of July, 1830, could,
upon proof of a required nature, bo
granted pensions which included with
the grant arrears back to the time of
their discharge from the service of their
Thousands and tens of thousands of
bid soldiers did not avail themselves of
this opportunity. They said to them
selves and their friends "I am able to

time to pass. But age began to tell upon
them, diseases that they had endured for
wnni-a haeame more and more severe.

Jich, tho great cry of the politicans be
came: "What will be done with the
Burplus in the Treasury of tho United
States ? " These soldiers who baa patri
otically refused to deplete the Treasury
when ita treasures were scant felt at
liberty to apply for their just rewards
when it was overflowing, but by Reason
of tho arbitrary limit fixed by this "Ar
rears Law" could only get their pen
.inns from the time of application. Had
they rushed in at the close of tho war
they could have been drawing their al
lowances quarterly for over twenty
yearB. Had they applied in time they
could have secured arrears covoringthat
period but they had been patriotic and
must suffer for it.
Then a bill to extend this limit was
fcefroduced into Congress and John Slier
MKtn with seven other Republican Senators
joined the Democrats in its defeat! This
action has not warmed tho hearts of tho
old soldiers to the distinguished Senator.
But we aro told that tho present is a
critical time in the financial affairs of the
country and that Mr. Sherman's services
.will.be indispensable in the councils of
tho nation during the next few years.
True, he had a clear head and a firm
hand at one time in our financial history,
but has he not shown at other times a
great weakness in such matters?
Did not his statesmanship demonetize
silver a few years since? Did not he in
1872 advocate the payment of the 5-20
bonds in greenbacks, thus inaugurating
the "greenback crsze" which Pcndletbn
and others took in hand and which
threatened for a time to result in virtual
repudation of a large portion of our
country's obligations? Is his record so
clear that ho can be implicitly trusted,
oven in his great stronghold, financial
In 1868 or 1869 John Sherman
delivered a speech in Springfield,
Ohio, in which he declared that the then
present generation should not attempt to
pay off the National debt. "We have
put down the Rebellion," ho said, "let
the next generation pay the debt."
What would have been the condition
of tho country now had his advice been
heeded ?
As Republicans we have further right
to complain of another grievous matter
which is so suspicious that we feel
called upon to mention it, and that is
tllis whonever the people of Ohio have
for years past been called upon to elect
a Legislature whose duty it would be to
select a successor to Mr. Sherman that
Legislature has been Republican, but

name a successor to Mr Sherman's colleague

Another consideration is well worth
' our scrutiny. Mr. Sherman is Bixty-eight
years of age. Should he be re-elected
his term of office will not expire until
'ho isabouf'soventy-fiyeV 'The "expccla-'

ninety and nine yeara old when she
gave birth to Isaac, but these are all ex
ceptional instances. No insurance com
pany would consider any of the celebri
ties mentioned above as 'dc-irable
risks," and Mr. Sherman's age should bo
quite an important factor in our compu
tations under the present circumstances.
Should he be re-elected and die during
his term of office the usual ad tnlerim
Democratic Legislature wou'.d act, and,
if Mr. Brice should be admitted to his
seat, we would have as a scandalous object

The News Herald makes no charges.
It only asks questions and offers sugges
tions in a matter of public importance.
Governor Foraker's friends have stood
tho flings and sneers of a supercilious
faction; they have felt the outside press
ure from other States and even from tho
Administration at Washington against
them. But they havo felt that Ohio is
capable of attending to, her own affaire,
and that they are not willing to stand
still and submit to dictation from any
man or set of men, especially from those
so vulnerable as are they now arrayed
against them. It is a suggestive fact
that those who oppose a third term for
Foraker are now the loudest in their de
mands for a i.ri7i term for Sherman.
They denounced the idea of six years
for one man but ask thirty years lor
another. We propose to discuss
this Senatorial question as best we can
and in the interest, as wo believe, of our
State and Nation and so have enlisted
under J. B. Foraker and hope to follow
him to victory, but if defeated wo will
be with him next year in the campaign
against the common enemy.

Washington, D. 0 , Nov. 20th, 1891.
The President returned from the last
vac ition he is likely to have for the next
seven or eight months a duck shooting
trip iu Maryland in time to preside
over a very important Cabinet meeting
to day, at which portions of his annual
message to Congress, which will be un
usually important this year, were read
and discussed. Tho name of the succes
sor to Secretary Proctor was also sub
mitted, and there was some informal
talk about tho Buccess of Minister Fred
Grant in getting the government of Aus
tria to withdraw its prohibition of the
importation of American pork, which is
now regarded as an assured fact. Secre
tary Blaine had something interesting
to say about the reciprocity treaty with
Mexico and his final instructions to
Minister Ryan, who left Washington for
tho city of Mexico this week. The ne
gotiation of this treaty or agreement will
probably bo officially concluded and an
nounced soon after Minister Ryan gtts
back to his post of duty, as only a few
of tho minor details remain to be settled.
Tho President and every member of
his Cabinet realizes that they have a
season of hard work before them, and
that, politically speaking, the coming
session of Congress promises to be a
most important one, as the action of the
Democratic House of Representatives,
from its election of a Speaker to its ad
journment will bo pregnant with results
affecting tho Presidential campaign and
the commercial and industrial prosperity
now so general throughout the country,
and they may be relied upon in con
junction with tho Republican Senate, to
bo on the alert to counteract the evil of
any wild cat legislation that may be at
tempted by the Democratic House

prophecy is already fulfilled, and the
agents of Tammany Hall are in Washing

ted Speaker of the House, just as next
year they will be at the Democratic nat
ional convention demanding the nqrni
nation of some man who will promise, if
elected, to allow them to introduce into
national affairs the corrupt methods
which have made the New York city
government a stench in the nostrils of
honest men every w here. The Speaker
ship contest will be a test of the strength
of Tnmmany Hall in national affairs ; if
it can havo Crisp elected Speaker it can
dictate tho Democratic Presidential
nomination next year.
Secretary Foster is very much inter

cerning the methods of certain Euro
pean associations in assisting undesirble
people to come to America, as well as
the immoral pratices in the steerago of
European steamers. Secretary Foster

of tho experiment made by tho depart

in extending tho free delivery of mail to
towns and villages, which will show that
the bervice has resulted in increased
business at every postoflice where it
has been introduced, to say nothing of
the convenience and saving of tiino to
the residents of small places in having
their mail regularly delivered at their
houses, and the report will strongly urge
an appropriation sufficiently large to
make this service general. The report
will also contain some interesting matter
concerning tho war on tho lotteries, the
new postal subsidy law, the reports from
county-seat postmasters, and a renewal
of last year's recommendation for the
establishment of a postal telegraph.

Free Silver I-sue Musi be Fought Out
in 1892.
The issue between Republican and
Democratic parties in 1892 on freo silver
coinage, fays the Xew York Pres, is al
ready made and must be fought out ut
the polls with the greater issue of the
tariO. The boldness with which Secre
tary Foster declared the financial dec
tiinu of Republicanism to bo the main
tenance of the parity of gold and silver,
but not the shitting of currency basil to
silver by free coinage of that metal, is
refreshing at a time when Democratic
leaders are attempting to relegate the
freo silver issuo to the backuiound. It
demonstrates bejond dispute the posi
tion that will be maintained iu Waidi
ington this winter by the administra
tion, and shows the tenor of the eilver
plank that will bo enacted by the Re
publican national convention of 1SU2.
I Tho Republican party is iirmly opposed
to free silver coinage. Tho present
financial stability of tho country is so
great thut it has been unshaken by
events in the financial world which
shook the nations of Europe.
The Democratic conventions in nearly
every Southern Statu and nearly every
State west of the Alleghany Mountains
have endorsed free silver coinage. The
better class of New York Democrats are,
like the Republicans, opposed to free
coinage of the white metal. With the
tendency in the Democratic party in
other States, however, to favor free
silver coinage, the Democratic party
cannot escape from adopting in its plat
form next year an expression in favor
of that policy. Neither can it avoid
passing in Congress this winter a free
silver coinage bill. The leaders of the
Democratic House are all fioe silver
coinage advocates. Thev cannot be
overruled by the opinions of eastern
Democrats, the Empire State will be lost
to them in the Presidential election if
they pursue this course. It mny be
ignorance, but the average western and
southern Democrat thinks that the
masses of people in this State are as
crazy for free silver as the Democrats
in the Rocky Mountain communities,
where silver is their chief product. At
this juncture the Republican party has
only to hold steadfastly to the funda
mental principles that have marked its
entire financial history.

Republican Victories.
R. B. Hayes received 2,700 majority
over Allen G. Thurman in 1807. In 1867
Hayes' majority over Pendleton was
0,700. The Republicans carried the
State against Allen by 5,500. In 1876
Charles Foster was elected by 20,000
majority and in 1881 by a majority of
23,000. Foraker carried tho State in
1885 by 17,000 and in 18S7 by 23,000.
Theso aro what might be called the
moderate Republican victories in Ohio.

Brough, tho war Governor, over Vul

course, ran far above tho foregoing fig

McKinley's majority over Campbell is

Governor Bishop carried the State in
1878 by 20,000., Hoadly was elected in
1883 by 12,000; Campbell was elected
two years ago by a plurality of 10,9S9.
Campbell and Hoadly were the only ren
egade Republicans that the Democrats
ever elected as Governor of Ohio. Both
of them were miserable failures as ex
