Notice to Campaign
"Ve would like to have all our
campaign subscribers renew
their subscriptions for a year,
the terms being only 1,50,-
"We will continue to send the
papers to all until we are no
tified to discontinue them.
'Every campaign subscriber
can afford to pay the small sum
of 1,50 a year for his county
paper, or 75 cents for six
months, or 1 a year at Post
Offices where olubi har been
got vp.

Judge Martin Grain. Tho Court
of Common Pleas is in Bession in
Portsmouth, and Hon. Martin Crain,
our newly elected Judge, ia presiding.
Tbo Portsmouth Republican thus
speaks of Judgo Crain : ' .
. "Judge Crain wore his Ttnexpected
hnnrvra finnmwliat, hlnsliiilfrl v. "ITfi fiY-
liibited some of the diffidence natural i
' to a novice, in the routine of the bench, !
but at the same time, showed a dispo-jhi8
sition and determination to fulfill the
this new position with unro-
eerved devotion and ability.
chanre to the crand iurv was sui 7c?i-!
ens. it was not one ot tnose stereo
typed charges which one will hear
from a judgo who has been on the
bench any length of time, but was
novel and unique ; while it embraced all
the points required by law, yet it was
presented in a new and more interest
ing form, and the different topics were
more diffusely dwelt upon, treated, and
explained than is usual with common
pleas judges.
We hope those ignoramuses in this
part of the 7th Judicial District who,
eince the election, have thought it
necessay to speak disrespectfully of
Judge Chain, will see that they had
no reasons for so speaking.

" Siargeant-at-Arsis. Our good old
friend Samuel Pike, of the Iliiisboro
t Gazette, as we are informed, will be
named for the position of Sergeant-at
ArmsJJof the Ohio House of Eeprcsen
tatives. As this is the first time that
the Colonel has been a candidate for
office, we hope he may be successful
because he really deserves the position
The Colonel ia the oldest Democratic
" editor in this State, has been in active
' service for more than half a century,
and it would be right to reward him at
this time for his gallant and faithful
, gervices.
Thi Democratic State Central Com
mittee offered a banner worth $500 to
the county that would make the largest
t gains over the rote of last year. They
- have awarded the Banner to Lawrence

I Ths Zaleski Echt (a paper under the
li.nquircrinflnonceand,(intll ay..oftheZalC8ki
Company) of last week, publishes Iho
names of the persons in Independent
School District of that town, who pay
taxes, and ft list of the property, its
value, and the total amount of tho tax
on the property, and omits the taxa
blo property and tho property not
taxed belonging to the Zaleslfi Com
pany. Tho Echo does not tell its renders
that the amount of tax it gives is the
Lord," who gallops from liouso to
house dressed in leather leggings, with
high priced bills of rent, would
haye th o think that tho Com
dutiesof , i -
His'pany of whom heis.the.manager, is
bearing tue burthen of the taxes! For
total amount for all purposes, but wants
the people to think that the amount is
for School House building purposes
alone, when tho amount is for School
IIouso building purposes and for all
otherpurposes. Theoditor of tha Echo
informs us that he will got pay for pub
lishing the list, above spoken of, from
the Zaleski Company. Now, we think
the rich Company have taken extra
ordinary pains, just at this time, to pay
a man $20 for copying the list of tax
payers in that School District from
the tax duplicate and commanding the
Echo " boy " to publish the same, and
omitting to copy from the duplicate
the taxable and untaxable property of
the Zaleski Company, so as to mislead
those who ur in favor of building a
respectable School House in the Dis
trict, and have them believe that the
figures in the Echo stand for School
IIouso building purposes only.
The Zaleski Company pay no tax
on lots numbered from 1 to 14 inclu
sive 14 lots ; pay no tax on lots num
bers 17 and 202 lots ; pay no tax on
lots numbered frotn 22 to 27 inclusive
6 lots; pay no tax on lots numbered
30, 32, 33, 30, 13, 54, 5G, 50, 60 to 65
inclusive, 87 to 80 inclusive 17 lots;
pay no tax on lots numbered from 90
to 119 30 lots; pay no tax on lots
numbered from 121 to 124 4 lots ;
pay no tax on lots numborod 131, 133,
135, 137 to 143 inclusive, 145, 147, 149,
151) 155 157j 158 nn(l 16018 lots
making a total of 91 lots. And upon
many of the above numbered lots stand
large and valuable btildings from
which the Zaleski Company are receiv
ing enormous rents rentshigh enough
to cause the heart of a poor laboring
man to sink within him and curso tho
unlucky day that dropped him down
in the ' town of English tyrran
ny and yet this " high priced English
shame, " Francis Jones !" do not de
ceive the Company that pay you a big
salary, by trying to make them believe
tho increase of the Zaleski Estate was
appropriated in this way ! ' Tell the
truth for onco! We know it' costs a
great deal to live in this country ; and
we are not surprised nor would we
have the pcoplo surprised when we
tell them that a large income is ncc-
essary to support one who lives as yon
would wish to live! Not one cent of
tax, let it be remembered, is paid on
these lots by the rich and aristocratic .
Zaleski Company for School purposes
or for any other purpose. -In
that part of Zaleski called Oak
street aro a number of lots valued at
$134 each, upon which stand brick
houses that cost about $500 each, one
of these houses and lots has recently
been sold to John Kimmey for $1,000
and upon which the rich Zaleski Com
pany pay a tax of only $5 65 1, while
Mrs. Betsy Sands, who owns a house
and lot adjoining these same lots val
ued at $1,000, and pays a tax thereon
of $42 16 6 for all purposes not for
School purposes alone, as the Echo
wsnes ne peopio to wuu.
"Will & Co. of Zaleski, who own a
dry good3 store only, which is valued
at $7,502, pay a tax of $316 33 4 there
on, and sell less'1 than $25,000 worth
of goods a year, while . the Zaleski
Furnace Company, who own a very
large dry goods store, and sell about
$60,Q00 worth of goods in a year, and
who own besidesthe store, many hors
es, oxen, wagons, cars, a great deal of
hay, grain, wood, ore, charcoal, pig
iron, etc., all of which are valued at
only $9,455, and Jpay a tax of only
$398 68 5 1 Look at that item, reader I
You can easily understand tho figures.
The Zaleski Furnace Company own a
large store and, sell $60,000 worth of
goods a year, and own thousands of
dollars of other property named above,
all of which they only value at $9,455,
and pay a tax thereon of $398 68 5,
while Will & Co. only own $7,502 worth
of property and jsell less than $25,000
worth of goods, and pay a tax ot iwit-
33 4 ! Do tho people of the Independ
ent School District yea, the people
of Vinton county 6ee how the great
Company are dodging the taxes ?
The total tax of Independent school
District, for all purposes, for 1867, is
$6,907 68 5 ; and of that sum $4,014
34 9 aro for School purposes, and $2,
893 33 6 are for all other purposes.
The total tax to bo paid by the people
of the district is $2,794 12 1 ; the total
tax to b9 paid by tho Zaleski Compa
ny Is $2,132 42 4 ; the total tax to be
(.aid by the Zaleski Furnnco Company
Is $398 68 5 ; and tho. total tax to be
paid by tho M. & C. Kailroad Compa
ny is $1,582 45 5 making a grand
totulofS'J,9Q7 68 5,
There aro 2.101 acres of land in the
district, valued at $52,943; the town
lots are valued at $49,324 ; and the
chattel property is valued at $61,584
total valuation being $163,851; and
tho total tax beinff $6,907 08 5.- Tho
peoulo ray for School and School
House purposes $2,775 09 1, whilo the
Zaleski Company only pay. for the
samo pnrf oscs $'1,239 25 8. By these
figures tho people can readily seo that
the Company do all the "blowing"
and pay less than ono-third of the en
tire asfiossmentl "Figures will not
lie," "Francis Jones!" You had better
blow out of tho other end of the horn
awhile, or pay taxes on. those 91 lots
