Ohio republicans have sounded the key note for 1351. It Is safe to say that the Cincinnati 'nines S'lur is for Sherman. There is a dispoitiou on the part of out citizens to move on the coal combination and knock it out. The new United Presbyterian chuch is to be dedicated tomorrow. It is one ot our most attractive church edifices. Will Powell answer, in plain language. the question put to him by Governor Fora ker in his speech at Toledo? The republican convention was enter tained by the city of Toledo in a manner highly satisfactory to all. Tlie coin entlon accommodations were ample and well ap-i-olnted. The city lias reason to feel proud. Vim and vigor will make next year the most prosperous lu Springfield's history. There Is a large and increasing demand, everywhere, for Springfield machinery, and sales are only limited by the capacity of our manufactories. The democratic papers 'are miserable over the harmony that prevailed at Toledo. They had hoped for a vigorous kick, by the Blaine men. against the Sherman resolu- j tion. but Blaine's friends are tiot built that way They recognized the propriety of the ' lesolutiotl. Uickham. of the Davtoti Joiimu', who is known to almost every republican in Ohio as a gentleman of superior judgment and , forecast, lias the following to say regaiding the make up of the Toledo convention: ( "With the exception of one, the editor of the Joimuil has attended every' republi-1 can state convention since the party was organized In 1S54, aud has been a delegate in all but two or three. With a vivid recol lection of the momentous conventions of war times, and of all the stirring conven tions since, we are prepared to say that we do not remember one that ranked the late convention at Toledo in tlie splendor of its attributes of personal worth, mental vigor, moral stamina, and unselfish, devoted pa triotism. We hare seen state conventions lliat were attended by the giants of their day, such as Chase, Giddings, Corwin, Schenck and their peers, but none that, in the average of intellectuality, moral and political standing, that exceeded in dignity and luipressivencss the convention that i- t Toledo on the J7th and Jitli of Jul)." ; f.'K.xti: niK.iKf.'K.iM' ititrt i n i.

No law-biding and self-' respecting citizen can feel that he lias any rigtit to icnore, and by his conduct to up hold, a crime w hich gave to the democratic party thirty-eight electoral votes for Mr. Cleveland to which lie was not entitled. Governor I'oraker's article shows how i clearly and strongly he states the ease. an. I it has iiuue to Is the one most conspicuous distinction between loyal and disloyal cit izens of this republic, that the disloyal roti the people of their right of suflraire hv frauds at the south and in shield their iienetrators and gladly reap fruits. To treat such an offence in that spirit is indeed, as Governor Foraker af linns, moral treason to the republic. The argument respecting the tariff ipics tiou is not less convincing, (tne. does, not need yean of economic study to percujve what Cardinal ttibbo'is statist in a recent sermon at Baltimore after his return from F.urope, that The condition ot our working ssiple hereisfarsuperiortiith.it of the working classes in anv of the F.iiroian countries.

We cannot resist giving a brief extract from a letter by the distinguished Dr. Gladden, of Columbus, lately published In the Chicago Intrr-Otniu. 1 1 neetls no ex planation. The lines below cannot fall to be of interest to our readers. They would even be of interest to the poor heathen themselves "Iet us confine our attention aAtais time to the issue in the Mission Board. The he retical opinion which, as it is alleged, should disqualify iiersons to preach the gospel to the heathen, relates to the future of those heathen who nave not heard the gosjiel. SoIlie nf those who desire to lie sent out as missionaries are not certain that there may not tie, in another world, a chance for those to repent who never, in this world, have known of the mercy of t.od in Christ. The won! "probation" Is constantly used in this debate. 1 like not the word myself, and do not use it: but it is f tir to state what they mean byiL They think It possible that those who have lived in utter darkm-vs here may. before they are condemned, have light 1 enough to justify their condemnation. They say that Christ is to be the judge of all men. and they think it reasonable to say that he will not condemn, for not believing in him, those who never heard of him. They say that no man can repent until that ttuth which is conveyed to men in the life and death of Christ the truth that God is merciful to the sinner has somehow been revealed to him. He has no knowledge of God that could lead to repentani'e until that fact is made known to him. Without the knowledge of that fact, he lacks the essen tial condition of an evangelical experience. He has not had a Christian probation at all. And it Is reasonable to suppose, they say, that no man will be judged by Christ until he has had a Christian probation. 1 The term "second probation" is often ap- piled to this theory by its opponents; but no man or fair intelligence ever uses tuts term In this connection unless he wishes to convey a wrong Impression. .Not one of , charged with heresy on this score lie- Ilexes in a second probation.

There is a piob.ibility that the gas well I j near Northampton will lie "shot" at some I tune during the course of the next week' or two. The How of gas from the well is of the most encouraging size, but it is not enoueh to supply the city of Springfield. and the owners of the well are burning , with Impatience to give the well a thorough whirl and see what it is worth. Many a I well which had no Mow at all has become a good producer by being "shot." At the same tune there is a distinct imssibilitv-that ' a damaging stream of salt water may be burned into the well when It Is "shot" and it may lie spoiled entirely. "We have got the best well in live isuiu-' tits." said Hon. .1. K. Mower, with eiithusl- asm, this afternoon.

Charles King, l". P A , in Har per's Magazine. An laiineaSA crotl aw. There is a man in the Sea Beach IVilaee exposition ou Coney Island who works out the most delicate articles with a band saw nineteen feet long and revolving at the rate ol over a mile a minute. I pon this immense machine the skilled operator in my pre-enre sawed out four chairs, all comp.cte v. ith legs and Imcks, but ,-n small that the four were placed on the end of a lead iencil at one time. Then a dozen knives and forks of the most dimin utive size were made and placed around the lend pencil. So small were they that although the entile dozen vvcie placed round the pencil not. one of theui touched the other Then the cqicrntor trimmed his linger nails ou the huge saw as clev erly and as -asily as one could do n with a ienknifc. Wetting his thumb, he pressed the ball of it into some sawdust and then sawed the sawdust- off the thumb without scratching the skin, yet a single nervous twitch of the arm would have cost him a hand. All sorts of curious puzzles are turned out with astonishing rapidity from all sorts of misshapen blocks of wood. Kvcn articles of clothing, as thin and llex ibleas cloth, are worked out by this ma gician from little pieces of wood with his big saw. The cap he works in wa sawed out of over 1,000 pieces of wood, no two of which are lhe same size or sha;ie Brooklyn Eagle "Hamblcr."
