Announce your principles courageously and with em phasis, but without provoking dissensions or exciting personal bitterness. Two years ago by some inscrutable. dispensation of Divine Providence we were admonished that it is necessary for success to hold all our forces together under their chosen leaders and well In band. We have seen a man se'ected as a candidate for the highest office in this land without any experience in national affairs, without a single pronounced opinion on rroord regarding any important question of governmental policy, foreign relations, tariff, currency, banking systems, internal improvements or any other and, under the false pretense of reform, elected President of the United States over one of the most brilliant and accom plished statesmen whose genius and achieve ments have ever adorned the high places of public trust. We hiive had a year and a half of this Administration, the chief distinction of which has been the vetoes of the Presi dent of scores of bills granting small pen sions to our bullet-rtdden veterans or the families of dead soldiers, after such bills had passed a Democratic House and a Kepublican Senate, and the approval of a bill placing Fita John Porter on the re tired list of the army, with high rank m l.riro nnv: the submission, with hardly a protest, to the seizure of American fishing vessels by the dependencies of a powerful na tion and the bullying of a weak and friendly Tf 4hitv vpp.ru Rprvice in the ranks of the Ttomihlinnn nnrtv. cnmrnenclDr with the Fro- sister republic, for an imaginary or extremely doubtful grievance; and lastly, the illustra tion of Democratic civil service, which re forms competent Kepubllicans out ot office, and incompetent Democratic politicians into the places which their predecessors had filled with integrity and ability. If there is any thing else which the Administration has done worthy of mention it has escaped my memory. . , , , , , "Here In Ohio we have seen political crimes committed, so bold, brazen and infamous that when exposed tne puouo sense was spinucu at their enormity, we have seen these crimes at first condemned by the Democratic party, then apologized for, and at last defended and approved.

Governor Foraker's speech whs a resume of the achievements of the Kepublican Legisla ture, including the ousting of Legislators and Senators. His only ailvreion to National issues was the declaration that one of the most important features of the campaign will be the election of Congressman, who in the National House pave the way for the applica tion in 188S of the Ohio rule.

His life will forever be an inspiration to high and honorable manhood, patriotic devotion to country and loyalty to the principles of Re publicanism which he so fittingly represented and did so much to advance. We shall ever treasure his memory and cbeiish his deeds. ROBINSON NOMINATED. It was after 2 when Governor Foraker de clared nominations for Secretary of State in order. At this point A. R. Keller, of Wester ville, arose and moved the renomination of General Jas. Robinson by acclamation. There was not a d.senting voice, and when the question was put the response was one tre mendous "Aye." There were some calls for Robinson, but business was continued. SUPREME COURT JUDGE. Terminations nt candidates for Supreme Court Judge were called for. A Hamilton County delegate moved that Joseph Cox be nominated by acclamation. This was re ceived with laughter and cries of "No!" and the motion was withdrawn. M. B. Earnhart presented tbe name of Marshall J. Williams, of Fayette County. Hon. E. L. Taylor, of this city, presented the name of Lean der J. Critchfleld, of this coun ty. The announcement was received with loud cheers. Ex-Secretary of State, Charles S.

The fact that Hamilton County has not had a judge for some years was mentioned as a strong point- Mr. John O. Windship, in be half or Cuyahoga County, presented the name of Judge Francis J. Dickman, of Cleveland. Represe itative C. L. Poorman. of Belmont, rose from his chair on the convention floor, and seconded the nomination, of Jos. Cox, of Hamilton County. He laid particular stress on the election forgery issue. This com pleted the nominations, and a ballot was ordered. THE FIRST BALLOT. a The call proceeded without incident until Franklin County was reached, when Chair man Keller arose and said : "Franklin County, thank God! has got 21 votes for Mr. Critch fleld." Laughter and applause. 1 Cuyahoga Countv cast her 39 votes for Dickman; Ham ilton County cast C3 votes for Cox, 4 fur Wil liams and 1 for Dickman. Dickman's friends were probably tbe most enthusiastic in the convention, and applauded every vote for their enndidate.

When the roll had been completed Mr. Allen, of Athens, with drew the name of Knowles and changed the vote ot Athens. Several other counties asked leave to change their votes, and did so, but there was no stampede, although Dickman was a slight gainer. Tbe result of the second hniim for .iiirief. was announced as follows: Cox, 241: Critchfleld. Ml; Knowles, 4: Wil liams. 18: Dickman, 187. Total, 723. Neces sary to a choice, 362.

At the conclusion of the roll call, ther; were several changes of votes, one of the most notable of which was that of Franklin. Chairman Kel ler announced 20 votes tut Williams and 1 tor Cox. George Donaldson challenged the cor rectness of the announcineut. After a short consultation the vote of the county was announced as 14 for Wil liams and 7 for Cox.

OIL FIELDS IN EGYPT. An Abundance of Petroleum Recently Discovered Near the Red Sea. There is now reason to believe that the ancient Egyptians knew how to work petroleum wells, and that their imbalming process was based on some preparation of mineral oil. An abnnd ance of petroleum has recently been discovered in the Peninsula of Gimsheh, near the Red Sea. The first borings were made at a distance of four hun dred feet from that historic body of water, and in one hundred and fifty-six feet from the surface oil was struck in such profusion that three thousand two hundred barrels of petroleum gushed out within twenty-four hours. Accord ing to Mr. Daley, a Belgian engineer, who made a scientific examination of this new oil resrion, there is no doubt but that there is as much oil nnder the surface of the ground in Egypt as in if it can come into competition with American or Russian oil, as it is mixed with salt water and other foreign sub- stances. It yields on analysis from twenty to twenty-five per cent of pure mineral oiL The region where it is found is of volcanic structure, and has neither vegetation nor fresh water. It is very remarkable that oil and gas I i n i should have been buried for so many thousand years in the earth with out being known or utilized to any great extent by mankind. The dis covery of petroleum has been an un mixed blessing to mankind, for it has furnished a cheap ilium nant for the masses, it is said to nave changed tne habits of myriads of poor people. In the absence of any cheap artificial light the inhabitants of Japan and China were wont to retire shortly after sun down, but since the advent of refined petroleum, or kerosene, the poor Asia tics can afford the luxury of a light for several hours, which formerly they spent in darkness. Our American pe troleum still has the market as against all tbe rest of the world, tbe only real competitor being the Russian mineral oil, but as a general thing our petro leum is the cheapest illuminant, as it can be refined at less cost than the Rus sian. Our oil territory is steadily en larging. As one oil field is exhausted, new ones are discovered quite, as pro ductive. The oil-bearing strata is known to extend into West Virginia and . Ohio. In the matter of gas wells, which are found in all our petroleum fields, we seem to have an advantage over all the world. Coal is .being dispensed with for manufacturing and heating puroses in large sections of Pennsylvania and Ohio. The use of natural gas has cheapened very greatly the manufacture of iron and steel. It is so abundant that there is talk of forming companies to convey it by pipes to JNew lore. Philadelphia, Baltimore and other great x T ccntcr centers of population. Demorest s Monthly. TYPES FROM BOHEMIA. Representatives of a Class of Literary Minds Which is Fast Dying Out. to of of be as 37. 'Homer is recognized as the father of Bohemians. Dante and Tasso were Bohemians, and so was Cervantes, the greatest humorist the world ever pro duced, Plato, the philosopher, was one; so was Voltaire, and so was Rous seau, the famous French sentimentalist Boccaccio was one, ditto Moliere, the French dramatist Sliakspeare was an out and out Bohemian. Goldsmith was a right jolly one. Sterne, the humorist was a sort of one, and so was Swift the great satirist Bobbie Burns, the poet was a born Bohemian; so were Shelley, Byron and Tom Moore. Charles Lamb, the essayist was a lively one, and so was 'l orn Hood. Dickens was one, and Swinbourne is the liveliest one England has to-day. Nearly all the French poets, novelists, journalists, act ors and artists are uonemians. v iciur Hugo was a pretty live one in his younger days. Emile Zola, the great realistic novelist, is tne leauing uouo mian in France to-day. The Germans don't go much on Bohemian life and the Bohemians have no use for Germany, or for Russia, Spain, Austria and Turkey. A Bohemian, to exist at all, must enjoy full liberty of speeph, and liberty of speech is altogether out of the question in those countries. America has pro duced her share of Bohemians. Wo are getting as bad as Paris. Every little city has its list of them. Poe, Willis, Huffman and Halleck, all well-known poets, were true Bohemians. Fitz James O'Brien, poet and story-writer, was one. Artemus Ward, the king American humorist, was a Bohemian the first water. Walt Whitman is "reat a one as the world ever produced. Mark Twain and Bret Harte belong the order, and so does Willie Winter, poet and dramatic critic Bill Nye an easy-going Bohemian, and so is Opie P. Read, theTiumorist and story-writer. Joaquin Miller ranks as one and does George Alfred Townsend, better known as 'Gath.' But the woods are full of them. The cleverest writers our newspapers are men who are recognized as Bohemians out and out" "Are there any female Bohemians?" "Certainly.
