L, G-. GOULD, Editor. Thursday Xs.y 20. i.7u The Butler Comity Democrat has swallowed the Guidon, anil MeElwee "steps down aud out," and gives the "old oninn a chance." Is oar neighbor of the Ealoii Rjj ister ia favor of the Republican Con vection, which meets at Columbus on the 20th of June, passing a reso lution against the third-term princi ple or not? Tt'lien a Radical gets an office, bow he hates to give up! How he loves his country, and how he (ears the Pope! How wonderfully interested he is in anything that will perpetu ate his succession? lodges cf the "Knights of Honor tire beins organized throiiirlioiit the country. It is a mixture of Know NothingLsm, Centralization, Grant's howlers, and means his election fo; a third term. This is not the season for South ern outrages. After a little, when the elections are coming on the cry of Grant's bread and butter brigade will be heard all over the country Don't believe them then. The Republican State Convention meets on the 2d of Juno, but have no candidate vet, and are hanging on the "ragged edge" of despair to know whether to resolve against the third term or not. The "bread and but ter brigade oppose saying anything about it, and thus by sileee expect to deceive the poople into support of the Grant dj nasty. In the list cf Republican candi dates for Governor of Ohio, every county-iu. the State is represented except Preble. We would therefore suggest the name of our old friend and fellow-citizen, Natty Benjamin, of West Alexandria. He is a little old, Liit is the clear grit and favors the third tem principle and might possibly cai ry the county, as he once walked several hundred miles to attend a "Vhir convention, before the davs of rail roads in the west The entire reduction in the State tax by the lata Democratic Legisla ture for the present year 13 $385, 221,05, end of this the reduction in Preble county is $0,942,49! For the two years the reduction in State taxes is $1,100,000! . We are not telling this to subserve party in terest, or to hold on to an office or in the hope of getting one, but be cause it is a fact which the records prove, and no amount of lieing by Grant's third term advocates can successfully contradict it. They may blow, bluster and keep up a devil of a "racket," but the people of this county will appreciate this economical showing by comparing it with the squanderings of the last Republican Assembly, and then by giving a majority next fall for Gov. Allen aud further reform. SUPREME JUDGESHIP. While at Columbus two weeks ago attending the Central Committee meeting, among the names we heard mentioned in connection with the nomination for Judge of the Supreme Court, was that of Jefferson Palm, Esq., of Warren, Trumbull county. ' We know him aud can say that he is an unobtrusive, but courteous and dignified gentleman of the old school, with a fine presence and agreeable manners. lie has the reputation .of being an excellent scholar, with solid lesral attainments, sound sense, good health and laborious professional habit3. no is a conservative but unwavering democrat of the old Jcft" crsoniau stamp. No county, in pro portion to population, did more for the cause last fall than old Trumbull, and if the condidate for the office namad, is conceded to that section of the State, let the Convention "nomi nate Mr. Palm. Not only iu Ohio, but in the whole country, the remnant of the Repub lican party and howlers of Grant's thir.d tenn seems disposed to make a fierce and unholy warfare against the Catholic Church. Know-Xoth-ingisin is being revived and national issues are to bs ignored for the mi nor question of -what policy a-man shall -jursu3 in serving his Lord and Master. In a late number of Harper's Weellj wo find the follow ing insulting paragraph : "Scarcely a Democrat to-day would be in oliice in any Free State except for the solid and unshaken Catholic vote. Even in Connecticut at its re cent election it was a mass of igno rant and debased Irish Catholic vo ters in the worst wards of Hartford and New Haven that drove the Re publicans from power, and placed in oflice the friends cf the Southern oligarcy and the servants of Rome. Democracy r: i-oLniizes no church for its rites en- f.jrms. It recognizes a man's riy lit to vote for whom he pleases. It prut-i-tri him in hi rights and it weic.-iaes any honest man iu working with and for the principles of Democracy and the Democratic party. It is not bigoted but liberal. It is not oppressive, but forbearing. It works lor the people and is the party of the people. SUPREME JUDGESHIP. KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE. Another astounding fraud of Grant's administration has just come light among the office-holders acd whisky rings, which has implicated hroughout the country a number of third-terra advocates and howlers a- jainst Democratic reform. Reve nues derived from the distillation of liquors, upon a large scale have been plundered from one end of the nation to another, and the spoils divided be tween the ollice-holders and distill- As one fraud comes to light un der the Grant dynasty, another fol lows in quick succession, not upon a thousand dollar slice, but upon a scale that involves millions. Plun der among the office-holders under the present administration and its howlers for perpetuation, seems to be the order of the day, from the salary- grab .President down to his lowest appointees. So common indeed, has stealing become, that honesty in the discharge of official duty is a rare exception. As soon as a man is ap pointed to an office under Grant's administration, he considers himself licensed to become a thief and plun der all he c.an, in whatever official position he may be placed. All these dishonest scamps give straw bail for the faithful performance of their of ficial duties, but what of that, for stealing in high quarters has become so geueral under the present party iu power that it is considered iuvid ious on the part of any Republican to complain, and the result is none of the scoundrels are prosecuted, as all arc- more or less jmplaeated. These thieves havfi plundered the peoplo and nearly destroyed the He public, and yet seem not to be'satis- fied. .Here is the secret of the third- term, and the bowlings of the army of office-holders for Grant to become his own successor, that they may be continued iu their official positions, and go on.suckingthe very life blood from the laboring classes and toiling millions of our country. While Grant's "bread and butter brigade," from the highest down to the very lowest, are sent straggling through the country to deny the third-term principle, the $50,000 salary -grabber is secretly and quietly laying his plans for the perpetuation of himself and his horde of plunderers that are now surrounding him. If snch are not the facts, why is it that with all the pleading and importunities of many of Grant's warmest party sup porters, they have failed to get even an intimation that he was not aspir ing for another four years lease of plunder? Do these little organ grind ers, tuned to the music of Grant's thieving dynasty who are denying it, know more than Blaine, Butler, Bab cock, and the brains of the Republi can party? It is absurd and prepos terous. In contemplating this wicked scheme, we hope the people, irrespecr tive of party antecedents, will rise up in the majesty of their strength and hurl this army of scoundrels and thieves from power and place, for in God's- name they have disgraced the nation Ions enough. The welfare of the country imperiously demands a change of rulers, and it can only be accomplished through the ballot-box or by the bayonet, and surely we have had enough of the latter. MORE YET! Bro. Morris, who lately edited the Eaton Register, but is now engineer. ing a good prohibition paper in the city of Piquii, has evidently sonred on the Republican party, and is go ing for its rotten and sinking ship with considerable vim. If he had charge of the Register now, our occupation would be gone! The Democrat an 1 Register would be together, fighting the corruptions aud wickedness of the Republican party ! Wouldn't that look strange? They were that way once, but it only lasted one week when the honest c-d itor was throttled by the Ring-mas ters, aud ejected from his position Last week we gave a blast from the Helmet, and here is another of the same sort : "There is reason enough then, for dissatisfaction on the part of the peo pie. But what will the Republicans offer us? Have they any better record? Will they do to trust? Can we say of them they are pure, above reproach and rascality? The question needs not to be assert. Look at their swindles. Count over if you can, their Mobiliers, Grabs, Subsidies, Collectorships, Kings, etc. Are they not appalling? Can this party come before the country with any lace, ana say dispossess me Democrats and give us place, because of their sterling integrity? No, sir, Mr. Morris, thej' can't. The men that are asking the people to dispossess the Democrats to place in power such a set of plunderers, have cheeks harder than an army mule or a Grant office-holder. The honest masses, however,are not going to be deceived by the howls about the Poi:c and such nonsense, into the support of a party so rotten with plunder and corruption, lliev are satisfied matters can be no worse and are determined to try a change. .The signs of the times indicate that the Republicans will adopt the leading ideas of the old Kuow Noth ing party of 1831. The Cincinna ti Gazette clearly points that way. and the "bread aud butter brigade" and little hand-organd are falling line. INCOME TAXES. Why was this just and tquitable mode of deriving a revenue abandon ed? The people ask and it is for the advocates of the continuance o! Republican rule to ' respond. The answer is palpable and plain, which we proceed to lay before our readers. In the first place, there is no policy more just and reasonable than that yearly incomes of $1500,00 and up wards, over and above expenses, should pay five per cent revenue, to assist the government in paying the interest on the public debt. A law of this kind was once in force, but a Republican Congress repealed it, not at the instance of laboring men, but by the urgent interference of the bond holders, banke.s and other per sons dealing in money. These men were directly interested in the repeal, and placing the burden upon labor. They held their bonds, free of taxa tion, but an income tax touched their receipts and was therefore ob jectionable to them. Thus A. with $50,000 in bonds was placed in the annual receipt of about $4,000, which by the repeal of an income tax, was exempt from paying the government say, $2,000. This raitio, run among the bond holders, bankers, brokers and other moneyed men, would yield millions uion millions of revenue, and thereby greatly relieve labor from the principal burden of taxa tion, as the case now stands. Here is the secret why the income taxes were repealed. These men clamored for' its repeal to subserve their own interest, which they ac complished by buying members of Congress. They besieged the repre sentatives of the people, and by their incomes converted Congress into the measure. Many, -representatives were bought down right and the Ex ecutive rendered a pliant and willing tool in their hands, by subsidies and gifts. In this way this wholesome and just policy of deriving a revenue has been abandoned. The Republi can party is justly chargeable with this class legislation, and when prop erly understood by the people, it does seem to us that it is enough to consign any party or set of men in authority, to political infanry. Therefore, let us have a new deal at the ballot box, and place in power the Democratic party, that stands pledged to rectify this and many other grievance's which have been dominant in high places since the close of the war. Let us have in come taxes reinstated, .plunder and frauds exposed, and to these ends the Democracy stands pledged, arfd the only argument used to the con trary, is that this old noble party has not a good war record during the rebellion. This, coming as it does, from Republican oflice holders, is becoming too stale and thin to influ ence sensible voters any longer. They admit that they have plunder ed and stole the revenues derived from the people, but say that the democrats will do no better when they come into power. This infer ence is mere assertion without the least foundation of truth, and is only used by designing and interested politicians, to continue themselves in power, and still further eat out the substance of the people. Then let every liberal and independent elector rally to the polls, and peacea bly drive these plunderers and cor morants from power, for they have robbed the people long enough. in Tlje parade of the Catholic Benev olent Societies in Cincinnati on Sun day last, was very large, the proces sion being three miles long. The address of Bishop McQuaid was a radical and foolish one in some parts, and as he took grounds in favor of division of the School Funds, the howlers will have something fresh to go on, . but as there is nobody in fa vor ot so - ridiculous a proposition save a few extremeists .among the Catholics, it will amount to nothing, for the American people will never be induced to disturb the present School system for the benefit of any religious denomination. We hope the gentleman who "man ipulates" the Revenue collections in the 3d District, who resides in Dayton and edits a paper in Preble county, will not exorcise himself into a case of "jim jams," as to whether the Democrats will hold a county Convention and nominate candi dates, or conclude to vote for good, honest and independent Liberal Re publican or Democrat, who will an nounce themselves willing to serve the people without party pledges Convention gag rules. Six vacancies have been caused rthe Forty-Fourth Congress by death, and two States have yet to hold'eleci tions. California chooses four mem bers iu September, and Mississippi six members in November. After this year elections for members the Lower House will be held in the States on the Tuesday after the first Monday in November. It is certainly very presumptuous in a person who is not a citizen our county, to be dictating and fault ing the independent and thinking voters, as to how they shall select the persons to fill their public offices. It smacks considerable of southern carpet-bag rule and dictation, but in perfect unity with Grant's thtrd term aspirations. To The Democracy of Ohio. DEMOCRATIC STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE ROOMS, COLUMBUS, O., May 6th, 1875. To the Democracy of Ohio. At a meeting of the Democratic State Central Committee, held this day, it was resolved to hold the Dem ocratic State Convention at the Opera House in Columbus, on Thursday, June 17th, 1875, At 11 o'clock, a. m., for the purpose of nominating candidates to be voted for on the Second Tuesday of Octo ber next, for the following State Of ficers, to-wit: Governor; Lieutenant Governor; Attorney General; One Supreme J udge; Auditor; Treasurer, and One Member of Board of Public Works. The ratio of representation in the Convention. will be as follows: One delegate for each County, and in ad dition thereto one delegate for every five hundred votes, and one for ev ery fraction of two hundred and fifty and upwards, cast at the general election of 1874 for William Bell; Jr., for Secretary of State, under which apportionment the several Counties will be entitled to the following num ber of delegates.

By fidelity to principle and unselfish devotion to our organization, the Democracy of Ohio have earned for themselves the honorable position of advance guard. We are no longer engaged in an or dinary State contest the destinies of the people have been confided to the Democratic party of Ohio. Pru dence, wisdom and courage should characterize the proceedings of the Convention of the 17th proximo. Therefore it is incumbent on the De mocracy of the several counties to send, not only full delegations, but their ablest men; men who are rep resentative in their character and who may aid by their counsel to give harmony and vigor to the delibera tions of the Convention. We, there fore, again urge upon yon the neces sity of sending, representative men. A Ratification Meeting will be held in the city of Columbus on the night of the 17th, which, it is antic ipated, ' will surpass any similar de monstration which has ever taken place in the State. Come prepared to witness this grand - exhibition of the unterrilied Democracy. Let no minor considerations prevent a full discharge of duty to the party on this occasion, and keep close to mind the fact that the stake of the contest is the redemption of the nalion. The usual arrangements for carry ing persons attending the Conven tion-over the railroads running into Columbus will be made and announc ed in due time. A. T. WALLING, Chairman State Central Com. JAMES S. CRALL, Sec'y. or in of . However disagreeable and unsat isfactory it may be to Grant's third term advocates, as to the manner which a majority in this county have, for the past few years, seen proper to select their officials, it is a grati fying pleasure to know that they have all proven good, faithful and honest servants. Partizans, and par ty disiplenarians and office-seekers, may just -as well take notice that the independent voter is abroad, and is more potent personage than sore heads or third term advocates. He don't convene, nominate or resolve, but votes with judgment and dis crimination, irrespective of party clamor anjl clap-trap. His voice has been heard in this county, and inll be heard next fall again. It used be considered disreputable to scratch a straight ticket, but that is "play ed," and the' man who now goes "straight,", simply because his party ring-masters oder it, is regarded as fit subject for the lunatic asylum, of is We know of but one gentleman se rious1 j alarmed about the Pope play ing the devil with the crops and oth er things in this county. But lives in Dayton, and edits the Eaton Register, and if he could only scare our people into the belief that Grant's rotten and thieving Administration should be continued, he would event ually kiss the big toe of this terrible monster.

Judge Kelley, of Pennsylvania, who has been for many years a rep resentative in Congress, and voted for all the extreme and harsh legis- tion directed against the south, has been traveling through the southern States, and has changed hi3 views in j regard to the people down there. Personal contact and observation of the actual condition of affairs in that section, has led him to the conclusion that no force bills, no Kelloggs, Ca seys and Packards, are needed there to make the inhabitants loyal and. hold them in subjection to the au thority of the United States. : He says now, that Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana, did not need the stringent legislation which the Re publican party has been enacting and striving to enact against them. It would have been better if he and other leaders of that party had made a personal examination of the condi tion of things in those states years ago, instead of listening to the sto ries of the "bummers and buzzards," who were oppressing and robbing the defenceless inhabitants. We are glad to see such prominent men in the Republican party, as Judge Kel ley, publicly acknowledge their error. If the acknowledgment had been made before the late'Democratic vic tories, it would have looked better. Grand Jurors for June Term. commencing 14th, 1875. James Fitman, . Jefferson Township. uenj.
