all who'can possibly go to be present
at the Convention at Columbus, on
the 6th. As half-fare arrangements
have been made for delegates on all
Railroads leading into Columbus
including the Marietta fc Cincinna
ti, and the Columbus A Hocking

the trip will not be heavy, there
fore a number of the Democrats

logir f0f you!' Because they w&l
9r.itraged in 1866, and made no:oirt?
cry against it they should quietly
submit to this second outrage, too.
Indeed! , ,
In the last United States Senate,
the Republicans had ;57 members
and the Democrats 17 making a
Republican majority of 40. In the
House the Republicans had 138
members and the Democrats 103
Republican majority 35. On . joint
ballot therefore, the Republicans
had 75 majority! Now, If with this
majority and a President just elect

the farmers of .Vinton county.--Should

some wheat dealera'expect, it would
require oho hunt'ired and thirtyseven'
bushels of , wheat a day to
pay Grant his Wly salary, as pro
vided in the SaWy Grab bill which,
he made a law by , giving it his ap-
proving signature at the midnight
hour. Just one hundred and thir-ty-seven
bushels a day! Farmers!
what do you think of that?
All the papers; of his Congres
sional District, wi thout reference
party, are calling loudly ou Mr.-.Wj
P. Snraerne to t 11 how he has dis
