TLe hypocricy of the Republicans
was never made more manifest than
it is by their pretence of depreciating
feeling of uneasiness and alarm as
calculated to effect business, while
they are laboring themselves to ex
cite a distrust which no sensible peo
ple feel. The fact is, nobody is
frightened at the proposal to expose
Republican fraud, but the Republi
can leaders and office-holders them
selves, hence, the above is a speci
men of the kind of stuff these pollu
ters of the ballot box are spreading
before the people, for the purpose of.
inflaming their minds and exciting
partisan strife and civil discord in
the country, that they may retain
their plundering hold upon the gov
ernment. When the Democratic par
ty submitted to the Electoral Com
mission, it did not agree to confirm
the fraud and encourage its repeti
tion by crowning it and bowing down
to it and hailing it as a blessing to
the land. ; Every member of ; the
House of Representatives declared
the result a fraud, and Republican
evidence has so accumulated to prove
it such, that not to give it a thorough
investigation would be cowardly and
a disgrace. : We have nothing but-
detestation to express for the deed
done and nothing but loathing con
tempt for its enactors, and the man
who opposes an investigation into
the frauds, is simply a political guer
rilla, willing to indorse any means
by which his party may obtain pow
er. The crime is too great to be for
gotten and too shameful to be con
doned,' and should be so thoroughly
probed as to make the history of it so
complete and authentic, that the pol
itical party which devised and con
sumated it may sink under the load
of infamy it brings. . It is not the ti
tor; that
has been settled, if not well enough
at least long enough to make it not
worth the while of the great national
Democratic v party to disturb the
country with its useless and futile
agitation. Bring the fraud to the
surface and expose it to the gaze of
the country, and if Mr. Hates' is
content to remain an occupant of the
White House, with his title reeking
with robbery and fraud, and the fing
er of scorn following him for the re
mainder of his term, let him do so,
but let the Democracy organize and
arm for the great battle of 1880, that
the fraud may not be repeated again.

Tbe individual who drafted the'
resolution for the bob-tail Conven
tion held in Eaton, referring to the
investigation as a "plot to Mexican
ize the government," is certainly ig
norant of the system of the Mexican
government, or he would have omit
ted the sentence. The essence of
that system is to permit an adven
turer to get into the Presidency by
bargain and fraud, and then to keep
him in by intrigue or force, the very
plan of the . Republican party as to
Mr. Hates. Any man with a grain
of common sense can easily detect
which party are the "Mexicanizers"
of our government.
The Cincinnati Enquirer says that
if Maj Shaw is removed from the
Superintendency of. the Orphans'
Home, there is talk of making him the
Republican candidate for Secretary
of -State.. The Board of that institu
tion don't meet until after the Re
publican Convention, so this body
will know nothing about whether he
will be removed or not If it did and
would nominate him, he would be
the best candidate ever presented on
that side. We would hate help to
beat him, but would be obliged to do
it.' ':' '
The boldest and most bare faced
communistic declarations irom any
person on the stump or off of it, were
from Wm. H. West, the Republican
candidate for Governor of Ohio last
fall, and they added much to his
overwhelming defeat, and vet the
bob-tail Radical Convention held in
Eaton, had the brazen impudence to
pass a resolution charging them upon
Democrats! We call the attention
of honest "irrespective of party men,'
to this-miserable piece of political
trickery and deception.
Hamilton, Butler county, is as pro
ductive of newspapers as warm rains

To these leading Republicans more
than any Democrat, belongs the re

is all bosh. . .

Eaton Register.
We don't see the Dayton Journal,
but from the above we conclude that
Balam and his ass have both spoken
again, about the Dayton Asylum bu
siness. , We are surprised that Mr.
Bickhah takes so much pains to
bring into disrepute and cast odium
upon an institution, that is an orna
ment and a credit to the beautiful
city of his adoption, and only for po
litical porposes. If there was any
mismanagement in the affairs of the
Asylum, or any neglect on the part
of tbe Superintendent and employes,
the flings of the editor would be jus
tifiable and might be passed over,
but such is not the case, and no one
has a better opportunity to know
this fact, than the gentleman him
self. The Trustees met simply to
transact imperative business con
nected with the institution, and nei
ther to i'reform" in or "reform' out
any of its employes. When they ap
pointed Superintendent, Steward
and Clerk, according to the letter of
the law, their power in that direction
ended, and no "pressure" was ne
cessary to turn other changes over
to the Superintendent. He possess
es that power by right, and the Board
is fully convinced that, having the
warmest interest and feeling for his
patients, he will do his best to make
good and efficient selections, as he is
obliged to live with and govern them.
No employe was removed for any
cause whatever, that his place might
be filled by Democrats. Dr. Huff
desired to leave before reorganiza
tion took place, but was induced to
remain until the new administration
could fill his place.' Both he and
the Druggist leave, of their own ac
cord, on arrangements made before
the present Board was appointed.
Thej&wJEhysician. and Druggist ap
pointed, are men of good moral char
acter, and above the average of those
who have filled similar places in oth
er. institutions, ihe' iioard has
not, nor does it expect to demand of
Dr. Morse anything, only that he
run the Dayton Asylum for its own
best interest He has already shown
his independence in this and mani
fested such disposition, by refusing
to take men wholly unfit for the
places they seek, and take only such
as are worthy. Dr. Adams, the sue
cessor of Dr. Huff, has spent four
years in Asylums two with Dr.
Gundkt at Athens and no man with
the least regard for truth, can utter
a word to his discredit He was re
commended by Professors in Cincin
natr, Columbusand -elsewhere, and
we are satisfied is the right man in
the right place.
The Republicans are determined
to have a "bloody shirt" campaign
this fall. ' For the evils of bankrupt
cy of all kinds of busines, the star
vation of the laboring classes, the
stealing in the Presidency and the
plundering of the treasury of millions
of dollars,: the only appology offered
by the party in power, will be the
cry of "O'Conner Legislature," Mex
icanizing' tbe government and "rev
olution." By such meaningless stuff
it is expected : to frighten the labor
ing classes and over-taxed farmers,
to vote the ticket of the party that
has disgraced the country, and by
contraction, bankrupted and ruined
its manufactures,
. A few Republicans of Preble coun
ty in Convention assembled, baed
resolution on the declarations of their
candidate for Governor last fall, and
charge them as being "communistic
declarations of Democratic dema
gogues," and then ask tbe independ
ent, honest, "irrespective of party':
voters to come and help them ! This
is a specimen of the dishonest decep
tion that is to be used, in this coun
ty, to induce "irrespective of party
men" to support an organization
rascality and robbery.
The Republicans who voted for the
resolution in the bob-tail Convention;
that declared the re-districting of the
State to be "grossly unfair," don'
recollect that they approved of
worse gerrymandering in 1872, which
cut up the State so outragecusly and
"grossly unfair," that it gave them
eighteen out of twenty Congressmen
A nice set of fellows indeed, to talk
of unfairness in re-districting
Shame!
If the term "Mexicanize" and "rev
olution" can be properly applied
either side, it is to the party now
power, because their President holds
his seat by fraud and against the
old and long established way of de
termining the election of Presidents,
It was unconstitutional, unjustifi
oie, without precedent and conse

[From our regular Correspondent.]
WASHINGTON, D. C. May 29th '78.
!
At all times an agreeable place for
a promenade, the Capitol is never so
attractive as when the foliage of the
trees in the parks and on the ave
nues is developed in rich abundance.
The Pennsylvania is suggestive of
the Paris Bonlvards in their summer
UUC
ty of Florence, Stockholm "and some
other of the most charming places in
Europe. Bnt it is not alone in afflu
ence of nature that a pedestrian
finds .delight in Washington. : Pas
sion and taste for art can nowhere
be better satisfied than in the Cor
coran Gallery a noble gift of a gen
erous-'and judicious millionaire-
where some of the choicest paintings
ever produced have been collected.
"When the civil .war is over ". the
political : struggle ended and after
Congress has adjourned, your cor
respondent will be able to devote
more of: his. time and . your paper
more of its space to art, artists and
historical sketches of Washington as
it was, as it is and will be.
The Potter investigating commit
tee has held several meetings, but no
definite plan as to scope of its work
has yet been adopted, in point of
fact, the outlook for the committee
is not so encouraging as the men
who inaugurated the movement ex
pected. There is no interest what
ever taxen in it here, and tue most
insignificaut investigation of the Inst
Congress received -more notice than
this will. And, from reports that
have come from abroad, in the news
papers and from private sources, it
is generally understood mat the
country is as indifferent to the mat
ter as the politicians here arc. The
action Or rather lack of action of the
Democratic National Committee has
been a serious damper upon the en
thusiasm of the investigators, and
the failure to scare anybody has dis
appointed them. .Mr. rotter. Chair
man of the committee, has written
an important letter to a friend. The
substance of the letter is an indica
tion of the course of the Democrats
in the House in instituting the in
vestigation, and denying that it is
intended, to affect the title of Presi
dent Haves, or is in the least degree
revolutionary. He thinks the inves
tisration necessary to a final author
itative settlement of the question
which has caused so much agitation
ever since the Presidential election
and justifies it on the ground of pat
notism and peace. J. he letteos vers
ions and elaborate.
The bill to repeal tue Bankrupt
law, with the Senate amendments, is
now lvmg on the speaker s table in
the House. Registers of bankrupt
cy throughout the country are tak
ing a great deal of interest in this
bill, and some of them ara now here
trving to defeat it The Senate
amendment . which postpones the
date until the 1st of September, when
tbe repeal shall take effect it is un
derstood, was suggested by them and
its adoption secured through thei
efforts. Even : though the repeal
takes . effect at that clate. it will be
several years in most of the States
before the proceedings already in
stituted can be terminsted.
Among the Republican Senators
there is an evident purpose to tax
the country about $20,000 per year
for the benefit of Gen. Crrant. ihe
motion to reconsider the vote by
which the bill to place Gen. Shields
on the retired list was defeated,
pending and will be caueu up, per
DoV Cameron is particularly cner-
g3tic in pushing this measure in the
interest of Gen. Grant. He has
made appeals to several Democratic
Senators, urging them to vote lor tne
bill when it comes up, because Geu.
Grant "actually needs the money."
This is the way he put the matter
Senator Hill, reminding the latter,
the same time, that he had declared
he would vote for the bCl if be be
lieved Grant needed assistance.
There can hardly be any doubt that
assurance has been received from
the ex-President that he desires this
"nresent" ' from the people. A Re
publican Senator stated yesterday
that the bill would be called up
soon as its passage could be made
certain by the pledge pt sufficient
votes. The requisite number of votes
will probably be obtained, as the Re
publican Senators who voted against
it before have been informed that
the measure is really to help Gen
Grant., The indications , now
that the bill will be passed, and that
Gen. Shields and Gen. brant will
both be retired. The Democratic
friends of Gen. Shields will stand
his name, and as it has been made
to appear that ex-Prcsident Grant
actually short of funds, it is not lm
probable that several Democrats will

WILLIT CONSOLIDATE THE REPUBLICAN
PARTY?
is
Some Republicans say that one ef
fect at least is certain to be produced
by the introduction and passage of
tbe rotter resolution, and that is the
consolidation of their party. A few
croaking Democrats give utterance
to tne same opinion. , - ,
If the Republican party were now
performing the function for which it
was originally organized, -that of the
handmaid of human liberty, its con
solidation would be a public bless
ing. ' But, in the estimation of many
who were at some time among its
zealous members, and of not a few
who helped to establish it, the Re
publican party has Eurvived its day
of usefulness,- while numerous and
great abuses have grown up under
its long continued lease of power
which demand a change in the ad
ministration of the Government The
Republican party suffered a deep in
ory , in having a man of so much
military distinction . that he must
perforce be recognized as its leader
and head, while be possessed but lit
tle capacity for civil office, and held
extremely loose notions of official ob
ligations. Corruption can hardly be
said' to have crept in during his two
terms; of the .Presidency; for the
truth is, rather, that the floodgates
were opened and it was allowed to
rush in. -;'r ';-A ' "
Mr. Hayes succeeded Gen. Grant
by means which main' Republicans
disapprove of as heartily as any Dem
ocrats, and, besides, he seems to pos
sess few qualities to commend him
to the favor of his own political or
ganization. Under - such circum
stances there'was naturally a strong
tendency to disintegration in the Re
publican party. , .
Now, however, we, are toTd that it
is'. to. .be ..reunited,' and made once
more compact and harmonious. This
is to be brought about by the Potter
resolution.' And what is the rotter
resolution? A resolution to investi
gate certain alleged frauds. ' That is
to re-unite the Republican party, and
the reunion is to be in opposition to
investigation. In other words, -we
are to have a Republican party ho

The Logansport . ( Ind. ) Journal,
in speakingof Mayor Abbott's al-
dress at the temperance celebration
in that city, on Friday last, says:
"President W. H. Leedy introduc
ed Hon. Luther C. Abbott, Mayor
Eaton. Ohio, who made an address
never before equalled In th:s city,
the temperance theme. Mr. Abbott
speaks from the heart, oftimes- ap
pearing "visibly affected by his own
words and thoughts, and the listen
ers appeared to driuk in his inspira
tions as though by magic. Seldom
has a man been heurd with more
wrapt attention, or the eloquent sen
fences appreciated greater..' 'Evi
dently ' his heart-felt words touched
many a thoughtless man oi intem
perate habits. Even were the re
porter to quote the speakers words,
he could not give the spirit, and the
moct beautiful portions of tbe ad
dress would prove as a dead weight,
and would be injustice to tbe able
gentleman." .
The blatherskites who are resolv
ing that it is "revolution" and"Mex
icanizing" the country to investigate
the Presidential frauds, are the
and office-seekers who
afraid that an exposure will leave
them out in the cold. There is
danger to the country nor to . any
thing, except the rascals who assist
ed in perpetrating the villainy, that
cheated the people out of their fair
ly elected President.
