Farmers too often suppose
that prices of wool arc regula
ted solely by its quality. In
the main this U true, but there
are ot'ier things which also af
fect prices. For a few years
past, buyers, and especially
manufacturers!, have given at
tention to the condition as well
as quality of wool, and have
discriminated in prices against
that which was sent to market
half washed or poorly packed.
Those who have wool to sell
will do well to remember this
and not only sec that it, is prop
erly cleaned, but also that it is

The resolutions are as fol
lows, most of them having been

County Platform, a' part from
a series prepared by General

Resolved, by the Democracy of Ohio.
1. That, denouncing tho extraor
dinary means by which they wero
brought about, wo rocognizo as ac
complished facts tho thrco amend
ments in fact to. the Constitution,
recently dechtrod adopted, and the
same us no longer political issues
beforo tho country.
2. Wo demand that tho rule of
strict construction, as proclaimed by
tho Democratic futhors, accepted by
tho statesmen of all parties prorious
to tho war, embodied in tho Tenth
Amendment to tho Constitution, be
rigorously applied now to tho Con
stitution as it is, including tho three
ccent amendments iliall not bo held
have in any respect altered or
modified tho original theory and
character of tho Fodoral Govern
ment; but only to havo enlarged
tho powers delegated to it; and to
that extent, and no 'more, -to have
abridged the reserved rights of tho
States; and that, us thus construed,
tho Democratic party pledges itsolf
lo tho full, iuithlul und absolute
.execution und enforcement of tho
Constitution ns'it now is, so as to
secure ennui rights all persona
undor It. without distinction of
ruco, color or condition.
3. Thut tho absolute equality of
each and every Stato within tho
Union is a fundamental principle ot
the Federal Government.
4. That wp will always cherish
and. uphold the American system ol
Stato and local governments,- for
Stato , and local purposes, and , a
General Government for general
purposes only; and aro unalterably
opposed to nil attempts at centrali
zation and consolidation of power in
tho hands of the General Govern
ment; and tho moro especially
when such. attempts are'in tho form
of usurpation by any department of
that government. And, further,
that wo ndhcio firmly Co tho princi
ple of maintaining a porfect inde
pendence between the co-ordinato
departments of tho Government,
tho Legislalivo, tho Executive and
tho Judicial, condemning all en
croachments by ono upon tho fuue-
tions of tho others.
5. White the fundamental law, nsJ
exproHHcu iu 1110 uimisuiuhuu
in the uonsuuuion is
necessarily permanent until abro
gated, a prescribed by that instru
ment, bI legislation is, in its nature
aDd purpose, temporary and eubjoet
to change, modification or repeal, nt
tho will of a majority of tho people,
expressed through tho law making
power, and that the pretense that
anvactof Congress not executed
and spent, or any legislative policy
of a party is an absoiuto finality, is
totally inconsistent with tho whole
theory ot republican government,
and that it is tho unquestionable
right of tho people ot thomselves,
and through their representatives,
at each successive election, and in
each successive Congress, to judge
of what legislation is nocessury and
proper or appropriate to carry into
execution and cnlorco tho consum
tionnl powers, rights and duties of
tho Federal Government.
G. That, as an instanco of emi
ncntly appropriate legislation under
tho Fourteenth, we demand now of
Congress a universal amnesty.
