A tew days after the defalcation of
Spitler. became public, one of the
Democratic stumpers thatinfeste the
Court-house in this place, had been
to Pickens' school house to make a
speech. ;. Stopping at the residence of j
Mr. Hill, the Democratic candidate
for Auditor, and . calling him up out
of a warm bed to his door, our long
whiskered gentleman exclaimed in
an excited manner: "John,' some
thing must be done ia this Spitler
matter to stop it Dunn and Bope
are blowing1 like h 1 about it all
over the county, and it is injuring
us. Something must be dene." '
Poor fellows! Afraid not that
the County would lose by the defic
it, but that their party would lose
votes. .Not that the plow-holders
would lose their hard earned taxes,
but that some of the rats about the
Court-house will lose their bread
and butter. But . whlskerando's
fears were not without foundation.
It did come out It hat injured their
prospects. The people of the Coun
ty, irrespective of parly, demand
that the Court house shall be cleansed
of the vampires, who have fastened
themselves upon the County Treasu
ry, sad by their extravagance, in
competency, if not worse, have squan
dered and misused the people's mon
ey. Let us have economy !
"Something must be done.''
Democratic Economy.
The Democratic Legislature of last
winter cost the State of Ohio, , ior
mileage, per diem for members, clerks,
and sergeants-at-arms, only $120,000,
while the Republican Legislature oi
1 867 cost, for the same purposes, G0,
106 85. Our Democratic retrenchers
just retrenched the "poor plowhold-
ers" out of $59,893.15.
This 'same Democratic Legislature
passed just 184 laws of a general na-
ture, which , cost. the dear people, in
per diem and mileage jof the members
of that body, $653.00 each.
Adding to the per diem of members,
the appropriations for, lights, fuel, sta
tionery, printing, dec, and yeu have
the cost of 'each law. passed, about
$i,oooi ;'' '
By all means, let us have more
Democratic economy, when this same
Legislature meets in November, two
months'' earlier than any Legislature
has heretofore met. " .

What are School-houses For?
In times like these, when the politi
cal armies of the nation are waging
an unceasing war, and the whole com
monwealth are on the tip toe of ex
pectation to ascertain who shall gain
the victory, it may seem impertinent
to bring so trivial a question oetore
the puhlio mind. . '
Bat it is not without an object.
. ...
We ask in all candor what are our
school houses for? and we desire a
answer. :- ; '
The young men of Findlay made an
effort to organize a Literary Society,
and would have succeeded had not a
suitable room for the occasion been
denied them. . They had the promise
of a room in the West end building,
but. for reasons best known to them
selves, the Board of Education with
drew their promise on the evening
appointed for the 'meeting, and the
boys were disappointed.' -
Now, we do not wish to criticize the
action of the Board, but we do think
theboya should be furnished with a
room for tiM occasion. -
What are our school houses for, ifi
not for the improvement of the minds
ot the rising generation ? And what
is better calculated to - develope the
mind, quicken the judgment, and
strengthen the understanding than a
good Literary and Debating Society ?
We hope tne Board wui consider
this matter. Give the young men a
chance to improve the hours they
might otherwise spend at the saloons,
and they will have no reason to regret
it in afier days.

The editor of tho Courier in last
week's issue attempts to answer my
tormer article on Hancock Coantv
democratic finances. He does not
deny a single statement and really
admits all my statements, except the
one regarding the County Expense
r und in 18C7. He said I had missta
ted this, and uses very freely the
words ,!liar,hypocrite,scoundrel, fec.''
Mr. Glessner, remember you are a
grey, haired man, father of a family,
soon togo to your grave; thcreforet
your age,. if. nothing else, demands
my respect , , , . ,
But let us consider, iirthe Heacoci
Courier of October 3d, 18G7, is pub
lished the official statement of II. B
Wall, County Treasurer, of the grand
duplicate of that year. By that pub.
lication the County Expense Fund is
given as $33,74134. We find the
same amount in the report of the
Auditor of Slate for 18G7, (page 3G)
Now who is responsible,?, who is the
liar'' fec., Mr. Glessner? Mr. Wall
the Courier, the Stale Auditor, or
'Tax payer ?" ' '
But the Courier says 'that 817,000
of Infirmary Fund is included in this.
Let ns see again. Let us admit this.
Now we know ' that our County
officials sold the stock in the Findlay
& Cary Brauch Rail-roau, which the
county owned, for about S3000, which
was worth, and for which they could
have got two or three times as mncb,
had they made proper inquiry and
exercised ordinary discretion or re
gard for the interests of people. There
was also in the Treasury over $9,000
surplus Soldiers' Bounty Fund. This
sum of $9,000, and over, was trans-
fered to the Infirmary fund. Now
add this to the County Expense
Fund, as given, and we hve about
$4t,000. Now, Mr. G., deduct your
$17,000 Infirmary Fund, and. we still
have about 827,000, as the County
Expense Fund of 17G7. But says
Mr. Glessner, in hisUast week's Cour
ier, "if we had been as diligent to
discover truth as to -tell lies, we
would have found that there is $6,000
of last year's County Expense Fund
yet in Treasury." What do you
mean Mr. Glessner ? To what end
If you1 mean that the County officers
levied $6,000 for that Fund alone
(and we don't know how much more
of others,) more than was needed
then we say, what an unexampled
outrage this, at a time, when money
was so scarce and hard to get to
compel the tax-payers to pay $6,000
more than was needed, and let it lie
idle and useless in the Treasury.
What gross carelessness and incom
petency. If you mean to say that
it is there for current expenses
the year, then tho fact is patent, you
have levied it, it has been paid
by the tax-payers, and you admit all
we claim. If, finally, you mean that
there is 86,000 of this Fund alone in
the Treasury, more than needed
then, by reference to the County
Treasuer's report of the grand dnpli
catc, published in the Courier of last
week, we find that you have levied
for County Expense Fund for the
year 1868, $18,0U0. Add to this the
$6,000 and we find you levying $24,
000 for County Expense Fund for
this year of grace, 18G8. Again we
ask, who is '"liar, hypocrite, &c ?"
"Tax payer," Mr. Glessner, Courier
or .County Treasurer. Mr. Glessner,
utop ! you can t explain away the
fact of extravagance, carclesbncss,
corruption androng in the manage
ment ot our tounty by your party
The more you stir it up, the worse
ycu make it It is bad enough in
all conscience ; don't make us blush
for our County, and for honesty in
man by making it worse
On the fourth page of this week's
paper we republish the celebrated
"Broadhead letter," written by Frank
P.'Blair, the Democratic candidate
for the. Vice Presidency, in which he
proposes to have Congress overawed
by Federal bayonets. Not like the
noble Grant who says, "Let us have
peace," Blair and his co-workers
want war,; anarchy and bloodshed.
We believe - our people have had
enough of that and will vote to car
ry out the programme of Gen. Grant
We republish this letter at the re
quest of a Democrat who says he
has not yet seen it. And we charge
it upon the Democratic party that
their organ has not dared to publish
it for the benefit of their readers,
notwithstanding they have been re
peatedly asked to do so.. They have
wilfully and maliciously kept the
truth from them, through fear of
damaging their cause.

Wo! wo! to their Trustees—Taxpayers
For the Jeffersonian.
In the Hancock Courier, of the 1st
inst, we find the official publication
of H. B. Wall, County Treasurer, of
the grand duplicate for the current
year 1868-9. Wc there find that the
total taxes to be paid this year by
the town and township of Findlay are
$42,655.75. Of this amount the
State taxes are Sinking'' Fund,
81,628.13; School Fund, 81,763.
97; General Revenue, , $1,356.
io. Aoiai, 13.08. jnow, as
shown by' my' former articles, the
Republican party is responsible but
for one of these items, to-wit: $1,
35G of a Revenue Fund.' 'Then we
have the Borongh Fond of 85,490.76,
being the total amount levied for all
purposes, 'such as improvements,
general expense fund, cemetery, of
ficers, road tax, fire department san
itary, AcT Next 'is Township, or
Poor . Fund, $1,695 95. Total ! of
township and borough, 87,186.71
Next comes the School and School
house Fund, levied in the town and
township by the several 'Boards of
Education, $20,756.70. Last we
have the County Tax, levied by Dem
ocratic county officials, and for which
they are responsible, to-wit: - "Conn
ty Expense Fund, $3,188.34 ; Bridge
Fund, $1,356.76 ; Surplus Revenue,
$339,19; Road Fund, $1,356.76;
Infirmary, $2,170.83 ; Special Road
Repair, $407.02 ; Special Taxes, $1,
144.82." Total county Democratic
tax in Findlay township, $9,963.72.
Notwithstanding this exhibit , the
Courier, of last week, and the week
before, has the effrontery to say that
in 1860 the amount of township and
borough taxes was $9,889.71 ; and
that in 18G8 the same taxes ae $26,-
525, or a Republican increase; jof
$29, 1 35. Now, by tho above exhi
bit of II. B. Wall, instead of an in
crease, there is a decrease of $2,703.
Mr. Glessner, are yon a "menda
cious ," or has Mr. Wall made a
false statement under oath ? Which
is it ? As a matter of fact the trus
tees of .both .township and borongh
made lighter kvies this year than
have been made for years.' :' Another
fact is true: If yon examine the
records of the borough, you will find
that our Council have this year made
an actual saving in that which, but
for them, in road tax, die., would
have been an actual loss of over $2,
000. They have been rigidly eco
nomical, and notwithstanding the ex
tensive improvements now- beine-
made,the treasury is in a better coa-
dition than for years. ;
Now, by the above exhibit, while
the State, Township, and Borough
taxes are less, the Democratic coun
ty taxes are greater nearly $10,-
000, or two-thirds as much as the to
tal county taxes paid by the entire
county in 1855, twelve years ago.
Now. Mr. Glessner, how could you
How about CoL Bope, Dunn, Beards-
ley, and Gen. Walker being "liars.
hypocrites, scoundrels," tc ? Were
you sitting before a looking-glasi
when you wrote ? We think so.
In the above exhibit is 820,000'
levied in the Borough for school
houses, paying teachers, die. Part
of this was levied in the south-west
district to pay off bonds issued by
them years ago, whereby to get mon
cy with which to build their school
bouse. The balance, or greater part
of it we presume, was levied in the
other district for the payment of
teachers, tc , and the building of the
large, fine house, just completed.
Now, Mr. Glessner, if you wish to
attach responsibility, you know that
two out of three of the School
Board, to-wit : Messrs. Galloway and
Myers, are Democrats, allhongh the
borough is Republican. But we pre
sume no Republican, and few Dem
ocrats, other than yourself, would
seek to attach responsibility here,
much less run our schools and edu
cation into the filthy mire of Demo
cratic politics. The Republicans do
not, as is shown by the fact that they
have elected two Democrats to the
Board, and we hope they never will
run these interests into politics.
For shame, Mr. Glessner! The
truth is, that the people of the dfs
trict built the school-house because
they needed and wanted it ' They
voted for it and paid the taxes cheer-
fully,willingly,and gladly.and instead
of attaching responsibility and blame
to the School Board, are sincerely
thankful, and say "well done, good
and faithful servants," to Messrs.
Harsh, Galloway, and Myers, for
their great ability and good taste,
their patience and sacrifice display
ed and made in the building of -th
house ; for they now have one of the
fincstbest fornished,and best arrang
ed houses in the State one of which
they may well be proud. They will
soon have one ot the best, and best
conducted schools in the State, and
one to which young men and women
in large numbers are already crowd
Mr. Glessner, you can't withdraw
the attention ot tax-payers from
Democratic county mismanagement
extravagance, and wrong, by such
miserable evasions as those above
cited. Faugh! Mr. G., ont npoa
