The above *e clip from the Times
Democrat opens up an imprortait
question as to tax prescription &e.
We know of property in this rxr
i.h that has not been on the roll
eince 1877, at which time the descrip
tion of the property was recorded a4
then required in the Mortgage record,
not as a title but to opperate as a lien
upon the land.
Now it occurs to us that if thrce
years back taxes were paid that this
kind of property would be free from
the State encumbarance.
The simple recordation in mortgsae
records to preserve a lien, is not, in
our opinion. sufficient to transfer
title to the State.
'this is an important decision and
applies to rural as well as urban
A Talk 11 kth Cleveland.
HIS STRePYG VIEWS ON THE TEiDEN
CIES OF TIIE TWO PARTIES.
I am a Democrat, which all the wor4
implies. t am, moreover, an intense
Democrat, in that I believe that the
true principles of the uDemoorati-,
lparty are essential to the highest well
being of this country. During the
war the Republican party had su
preme and onquestioned control of
public policy. No one will question
the service it re'ilere.1 at that time,
but the rank and file of the army w~s
cotum.osd largely of Democrats. The
great bulk of the people from East to
West, without regard to party afillia
tions, were solidly patriotic and ready
for any necessary amount of
for the preservation of our .iNtu
tions. It is folly to claim that the
war was fought by either Republicanse
or Democrats; it was fought _the
American citizeas of the .orth..
"But it is plain," he ,nsal
great seriousness, "that un Re
publican administrations there has
een. given a fresh and dangero s
impetus to monopolies, trusts and
combines. Immeag fortune have
been accumulated, ulnknown its the
davs of our tathers. They ate a pe
the control which they arbitrarily e:
ercase over the cost of existence is a
direct menace to the welfare of the
workingmen and our farmers."
Mr. Cleveland has very decided
opinions on this subject. The party,.
he declares, which willingly encour
ages these evil tendencies is not
worthy to be called the party of the
people. As a Democrat the Presi
dent believes strongly in the maes
and has a very larme sympathy for
the working clasaes. Whatever ia
