Thi counties of Hancock Henderson

Edmund and Myers to the legislature
at the recent election. The three coun
ties mentioned did noble crv!ce In every
way for the causa of democracy tod
should feel a Justifiable pride.in the ac
cotnpliahment. Tdk Ohio bosses wno cut down tbe
wage of their democratic employe the
other day, leaving tbe wage of republi
can employe untouched, explain the
matter by eaylng that they did so not be
cause the employes were democrat but
because they were aot ashamed to own
It. Ot to put it in the same way the bos
did. It was to rebuke the men for their
partisan xeal that the reduction in wages
took place. Of course tbe republican em
ploye could go about at their own
weet will and iog the song c f the bloody
blrt to their heart content. That wa
patriotism: but for a democrat to go
openly to tbe polls and cast his ballot,
tbat u treason.

tbat through him be could win succet,
: mud be cared nothing for his pernicious
2 ' record. Just before the election, too.
Reed and McKiuley went into b: diairict
and urged the election of hi ticket, and
eva Blaine did the aamo. It J a pretty
piece of business tor the republican to

that his wickedness lulled tbcm Pah!
