and elect Hates without any aid from
the southern counties of the state.
If Senator Seargant tells the truth
when he says General Grant is arix
ious to retire, why do all the office
holders oppose resolutions declaring
against a third term?
A parsonage, or residence of a
minister or priest, whether attached
to a chnrch or not, is subject to tax
ation, by a late decision of the Su
preme Court.
One Sam Strong offers in the
Washington Republican to bet $500
that Grant will be the next nominee
of the Republican party, arid $5,000
that if nominated he will be elected.
The defeat of Judge Taft was
rejoiced over ia Eaton, by the crusa
ding elementf by a magnificent dis
play of American flags ! . Of course
no liberal minded man could com-mand-the
support of the crusaders.
The Republican Convention of
Ohio indorsed the administration of
Gen. Grant, with his salary grab of
$50,000. his Credit Mobilier, his land
grabs and usurpations!
"Gen. Gbaxt don't want the third
term any more than he did the first!
Now ain't that satisfactory to 'every
howler about the third term? Of
coarse it is. He wants it bad.
All of Grant's office-holders want
" him a third term. Of course they do,
and any resolution passed at the Co
lumbus Convention doss not changa
their wish.
When the political outlook begins
to hang on the "ragged edge,"
Grant's office-holders declare they
wouldn't hold office a third term.
Such patriotism deserves to be re
warded !
An office-holder under the present
administration declaring his inten
. tion not to accept again under Grant,
would induce a person to believe that
the "grapes are beginning to look
sour !" Wouldn't such a person baa

The Dayton gentleman has declar

' The Radical Convention whtch
met at Columbus on the 2d inst., was
a large but not very harmonious
body, consisting of the fag ends of
Radicalism which gathered there for
the purpose of doiirg something to
bolster up the desperate and sinking
coudition of the i Republican party,
under the" corrupt arid usurping ad
ministration of their salary gcabbing
President. Closely analyzed this
Convention would bo found to con
sist mainly of three elements, to wit:
Those who want office; those who
supported the crusade against the
whisky influence and are in favor of
a crusade against the Catholic reli
gion, and those who want Grant for
a third term.' The first and second
element controlled tho Convention,
and may be put down as the main
spring that will run the "crasade"
machine in the coming campaign in
the interest of the present Radical
riartv. The busies of .-.on were
sounded all over the State for the
friends of the crusade and religious
bigots to meet on this occasion, and
prevent any. concession in the nomi
nation of a candidate for Governor,
end the slaughter- of the liberal
Judge- Taft, shows how well they
succeeded, and proves that they in
tend to fight the campaign on
ruthless and political crusade against
everything that is liberal and pro
gressive. Ruthfokd B. Haves was
nominated for a third term against
his repeated protests, over Judge
Taft, simply because the latter op
posed the Crusade and gave a deci
sion against mixing religion with
the alphabet in ourcommon schools,
and-the rejoicings and, display of
banners in our place,' by the leading
spirits of the crusade element when
the result was known, is satisfactory
evidence of this conclusion and
:f they succeed in electing Hayes in
October, the. Crusade will be opened
in the spring again, the.AlcConnells-
ville' Ordinance- re-instated and the
Adair Liquor law, with its black
mailing objections, put upon the
statute books. Mark that '
Some parts of the platform adopt
ed at this Convention we indorse as
clearly democratic, but other por
tions of it smacks of Ccesarism and
centralization. For instance, it is
announced that' "the States are one
as a nation." This declaration is,
true with certain qualifications. The
confederation of the States consti
tutes the Federal Government, and
one State is equal with another in the
compact and has a right to act in
dependently within its own territory,
in all matters not expressly delegat
ed by the people, under the Consti
tution upon the national government,
and that in these respects neither
Congress nor the Executive has
right to interfere in the domestic af
fairs of any State. In other words,
we are for the maintainance of all
the powers' delegated to the Federal
government under the Constitution,
and for all tlie rights reserved to the
several States, and a strict, construc
tion of the Constitution as it is. This
we understand to be democratic.
The next plank in the platform
financial, and in our opinion "is
against the interest of the . toiling,
millions, but eminently to the advan
tage of the Bankers, Bondholders
and those who deal in money as
trade and business. "That a policy
of finance should be pursued, which,
without unnecessary, shock to busi
ness or trade, will ultimately equal
ize the purchasing capacity of the
coin and paper dollar." This means
a specie basis to be reached, regard
less of the interest of productive la
bor, and to the manifest advantage
of the bondholder. What a great
departure this doctrine is, from that
which was announced in Congress
Thadeus Stevens, Sherman, Morton,
and all the prominent 'Republicans
when the actauthorizing the issuing
of the 5 20 bonds passed? Thissame
doctrine for years, was announced
both national and state platforms
the Republican party, but such
financial policy has been pursued
Congress by tho Radicals, in retiring
legal tenders and substituting black
backs, that the bonds have been rcn
dered equivalent in value to gold,
and now the Republican state plat
form goes back on this just and
wholesome doctrine of paying the
bonds in legal tenders, and boldly
declares for a specie basis. This
indeed one of the most gigantic swin
dies ever perpetrated upon a free
people by their representatives, and
is unjust and infamous.
The 4th and 5th planks refer
free education, no division of the
School funds and no connection be--
tween Chnrch and State, which
heartily indorse as wholesome and
good democratic doctrines. The
democratic party lias always stood
firm and done all within its power
.render these effective. .
The 6th and th planks of the
platform, iu reference to the patent
laws and a grateful remembrance
the services of the soldiers and sail
ors in the late war, is all very good,
but the laot that Gen, (Lrraut went
back on the soldiers on the bounty
bill, which would have helped many
a poor and needy veteran, shows that
Republican "remembrance" is only
on paper to catch their votes.
As to the 8th plauk, we Jieartily
agree with the words therein con
tamed, and have always believed
"that the public domain shall be
scrupulously reserved for occupancy
by actual settlers," but the announce
ment of the doctrine comes with an
ill grace from a party, that has squan
dered and given to rail road monop
olies the ..'most valuable portions
thereof, amounting'.-, to
nearly, one

people since the close of the war, to
have paid the national debt, and
what has become of it? In the
hands of Grant's pet office holders,
and the public debt stands as undi
minished to day, as it did at the close
of the war.
As to the third term plank in the
platform, it is deceptive, non-com
mittal, mean and contemptible, and
will fail to commend itself to any
Liberal Republican. Why not have
said in so many words, that the Con
vention was opposed to a third term
without any circumlocution to fall
back upon. The fact is, the Repub
licans intend to run Grant for a third
term,nnd the non-committal platform
taken, in connection - with his recent
letter upon that subject, clearly es
tablishes this view of the case, but
for the present they desire to conceal
their ulterior intentions.
But the most unblushing and bold
piece of effrontery In the whole plat
form, is the 12th and last plank,
which contains an indorsement of
,the salary-grabbing President as "a
distinguished success," a "capable
and judicious statesman," which "cn
titles him to the gratitude of his
country!" Great God! Shades of
the immortal Washington, Monroe,
JpfFersnn and .T.aclc Ron. stnnfl jitrlinst!
Language fails to express the shame-
lessness of a body of men, that will
so attempt to outrage tho. common
sense of the people with such swag
gering stufTj and we. leave it in dis
gust, satisfied 'that the honest and
independent masses will not indorse
at the ballot box, the actions of such
a body 'of political charlatans.

The condition of the Republican
party at the present time, ia search
of some popular issue to win on, re
minds us of tho boy who was found
by a minister digging for a wood
chuck on the Sabbath. The minis
ter reprimanded the .urchin for his
violation of the holy da-, and by way
of apology said, "you can't catch
him.". The boy, in an excited tone,
replied: "Can't catch him! My God,
Mister, I must catch him we're out
of meat !" So with the Republican
party. The "Ku Klux" humbug has
ceased to deceive; the "Southern
outrage" business has failed to draw;
the "Crusade" . fanaticism was
boomarang, and now comes the at
tempt to stir up a religious war
gainst the Cathol:c3, rather than al
low the rascalities of the Republican
party to be discussed.' Truly that
party is "put of meat."
The Methodist ministers of the

the power of Roman Catholicism
this country, and prevent it from

This is a very silly movement, as

Methodists themselves control the

General Grant is a prominent adhe
rent of that faith, and has just given
Dr. Newman, his pastor, an extensive

The sons of Zion from all over the
State attended the Republican Con
vention at Columbus, last week, and
worked hard against the nomination
of Judge Taft, because they claimed
he had . "kicked the Bible out of the
Schools," and opposed the Crusade!
So the liberal minded voters can
what they may look for should
Republican party succeed next
in electing Hayes.
Our neighbor of the Eaton Regis
ter is anxious to progress backward,
and reinaugurate the scenes of
and '55. Democrats and liberal Re
publicans do not believe in proscrib
ing a man on account of birth-place
or religion.
The gentleman a citizen of Mont
gomery county and editing a paper
in Preble three fourths of which
devoted to the interests of the mer
chants of Richmond and Dayton-
chattering about the "patent out
side" of the Democrat, is rather
an amusing "goak!"
There is no further use for
Republican party. The South has
becu plundered until there is noth
ing left. . The north won't stand any
more stealing. ' Therefore the
thing had better die.
There is a difference between
outside of a newspaper being printed
elsewhere, and the inside being edit
ed from another county. Of course
there is, but some are so smart that
thev can't "see it."
The howl about dividing the school
funds and "Catholic influence," is to
be the "raw head and bloody bones"
of Grant's satraps, to frighten the in
dependent, '"oppressed and robbed
tax-payers' of Ohio, into an indorse-
