The State and Nitional candidates are on one and the County on the other. Stamp both tickets. To veto a straight ticket stamp anywhere in tho square surrounding- the eagle .it, tho head of each ticket. To vote a mixed ticket, stamp tho square at tho left, of each candidate you wish to vote -for und do not stamp la the square at the head of tho ticket.

The Cass county Democratic rin^ deliberately and purposely last fall took the §82,000 surplus and divided it in two, one-half to be used in making up county shrinkage this year and one-half to be used next year, so that the tax-payer might be led to believe by the protestation of the Pharos that the new tax law did not increase taxes. When you meet one of those hide bound Democrats who would rather be the dupe of a trickster than an intelligent voter and citizen, ask him how it happens that the county of Cass- this Democratic county of ours, imposed a levy of 20 cents on the tax-payers and raised §38,000 this year when it had laid away §42,000, according-to the Pharos,which it expected to use next year for county purposes. The county management of affairs has been dictated by a gang of tricksters who mislead and deceive honest and well meaning Democratic commissioners who become ths tools of the ring because they have not the courage to assert their independence and their manhood, or because they are artfully misled. It is,time to call a halt on this. An additional county debt has been guaranteed by this same method, and the only hope is that good management may make it as small as possible. HOW IT WAS DONE IN CASS. County Commissioner Winn stales that when the commissioners met in September the treasurers report showed about $21,000 on hand and thatatthafsession they appropriated about $19,000. This shows about $2,000 on hand. The November installment will bring in on the 20 cenf levy about $12,000. The County Commissioners meet again in December and their expenses will bo in the neighborhood of §19,000 with $14,000 to meet it with. To give the Commissioners the benefit of .the doubt the Journal will say that it looks very much like a borrow at the December term. If however- that is escaped by a narrow margin, there is $10,000 of the §50,000 and interest on the whole, due and the March term of the Commissioner's court will expend another §19,000 all before another tax paying time and with an empty, if nut in debt, treasury. But Commissioner Winn saves all dispute on this point by stating that •the county will have to borrow until the spring taxes come in. It is evi dent that the spring taxes will be spent in great part before they come in and with two more sessions of the Commissioners before November, appropriating in all $38,080, itisevi dent that from living off of the pas the county is now piling up debt for tho future. And all this is done to conceal from tho taxpayers the work ing of the new tax law. RING METHODS. It is with deep satisfaction the Journal notes tho attempt of the evening dodger to avoid the damaging evidence of the ring attempts to hoodwink the people. "The Pharos predicted a year ago," says this hoodwinker, "that it would not be necessary to increase the county levy this year, but since then the toll roads have beea purchased aud paid for out Of county funds. This absorbed over §42,000 of the county funds." Any man who would allow himself to be persuaded out ot his vote by this statement ought to be disfran- chired for deep, dense, dark ignorance, for it answers' itself, to the man who devotes n. second of him time in twenty-four hours to the laudable occupation Of stopping to think. The Pharos says that that $42,000 could have been used next year to HERALD'PRIZE' CARtCATUPES Highest of ^11 in Leavening Power.—Lstest U. 3.

Cass county (Dem.) has raised thi lew for county purposes from 20 cent in 1S91 to 38 cents in 1892. Carroll county (Dem.) from 37 cent in 1801 to 44 cents in 1892. Dearborn county -(Dem.) from 30 cents in 1891 to 40 cents in 1892. DeKalb county (Dem.) from 40 cent in 1891 to 50 cents in 1892. Tiptoa county (Dem.) from 39 cents in 1S91 to 50 cents in 1892. \Yhite county (Dem.) from So cents in 1891 to 45 cents in 1892. These are all Democratic counties, which, like Cass, under instruction from the Democratic State Central Committee, made the levy lower than the county expenditures require, that the taxpayers might not know the real effect of the new tax law until after the election. It must be, indeed, an odious law that compels men. elected to conduct the county business in a busiaess-like way. to resort to such-schemes as this to conceal the workings of it. The Journal will give figures from other counties as they are received. SURRENDERED TO TAMIYiANY. me rrcu-Trade J'rophut ray* Some Attention to Machine Methods. The same trouble is just now brooding- over Mr. Cleveland that made the .ast days of his administration unhappy. Uetv.-cen 1SS4 and 1SSS he had devoted himself to courting- mugwump favor, and had turned his hack in the most positive and offensive way on the leaders of his own party. It was not until about the time of his renoinina- t'ion that it bcg-an to da^vn upon him that his coddling- of the mugwumps and toploftical treatment of the party- workers had alienated the men whoso support he most needed in the campaign, while bringing- him nothing in return but the sweetened wind of a small contingent of pompous persons, who strutted .round as best thinkers and leaders o'f public opinion. When he saw the true situation he befran to hedge. The crowd that had been clamoring for offices, but had been put off with civil-service reform excuses, got a hearing. The barriers were thrown down, and, to the horror of the mug- wumps, the offices were distributed upon the old plan of spoils to the victors. It was too late to remedy the mistake already made. The mugwumps were disgusted, and the old leaders and political workers were not won. So that at the close of Mr. Cleveland's administration the cloud rested on it of Having thrown overboard all its professions in favor of civil-service reform without profiting at all by the transaction. The leaders did not trust him. Being defeated, he fell again into the embraces of the mugwumps, and for the last four years has turned his back on the leaders and workers. Ancl now it appears that he is about to repeat the experiment of 1SSS and undertake to conciliate the men who hate him and whom he despises. There is no patronage in hand to be divided, but there are lots of federal offices in the distance which democratic success will put at his disposal. He knows very well—knows it better now than ever before—that Messrs. Murphy and Sheehan and Croker and the rest are not so madly in love with him or so ardently devoted to the principles of the cause he represents as to roll up their sleeves and goto work for his election unless they have some positive assurances concerning the distribution of patronage in the event, of his success. For these gentlemen make politics a business, and it is business with them all the time. Nothing is more notorious than that the democratic canvass has lac-sod, and the whole party in the state has been listless and apathetic simply because the Tammany leaders had uot come to an understanding with Mr. Cleveland as to the distribution of the offices. It has been said by some prominent ones that there would have to he a definite arrangement, not merely a verbal promise, but a written contract, with Mr. Cleveland on this subject before the Tammany organization would exert itself effectively in his behalf. But it is dangerous to put such things in writing, and there is no doubt thaAhe dinner given by Mr. Cleveland to leading democrats the other night was a device, suggested perhaps by Mr. Whitney, to avoid this difficulty. There- have been no disclosures as vet of what took place at this consultation, but one thing- is certain: that the dinner meant business, and that the business was to Teach an understanding by which Tammany Hall, in consideration of the federal patronage, is to take hold and whoop up the presidential ticket. When Mr. Cleveland sent out his invitations to the Tammany leaders it was a surrender on his part to the machine. Talk as he mar about his- aversion to machine methods, he knows they are -necessary to his success, and u he should be elected it tvill be, as The Sun says,:*'because he represents the methods of Senator Hill, ilr- Murphy, 2£r. Croker and the de- mocracv of the state of Sew York.'^' It is "his second surrender to the machine. Whether clinched by written documents or not has not yet appeared. It might as well be, for the conviction that a bargain was made amounts, wither without written proofs, to a certainty in the public mind. And this, we take it, eliminates the civil service plank from the Chicago platform.— N. Y. Tribune. A FORLORN HOPE. JIo\v tlie Democrats Expect to Ciirry >"ctr York. A prominent Cleveland democrat of New York, in stating his reasons for the belief that the Empire state will cast its vote for Cleveland, confidently reckons upon the thousands of votes of newly naturalized aliens, freshly made .voters for the occasion, who are sure to put in ballots for the democratic ticket; and he significantly adds: "As they always do." It is of the utmost importance to the democrats to carry "New York. Harrison can he elected with the thirty-six electoral votes of New York against him: but these votes, it is very certain, will be cast for the republican ticket. With the democrats the situation is different. The loss of New York is tantamount to the final collapse of their party and its candidates. Unless Cleveland carries New York, he will not stand a ghost of a chance of election. Accordingly, his party is preparing to make the utmost efforts to secure the vote of the Empire state. Against the loss of voters who abandon free trade and join the ranks for protection, against the thousands of new voters, now come of age, mostly native born and for protection, the democrats count upon the courts as naturalization mil „ from the immigrant class now pouring himself in 18S3 , in from the slums of Europe. It is to be hoped that the cholera regulations excluding immigrants may last until after the election. If they do, it will result in a large diminution of the democratic vote in New York.—San Francisco Argonaut. .UcKlflley IVascs. . The'annual statistics of manufactures published by the Massachusetts bureau of statistics of labor have always borne the best reputation for accuracy, for the effort has been to gat as full returns as possible. Chief Horace G. "Wadlin and his predecessors have done their part every year and have succeeded each year in getting an increased number of manufacturers to do theirs. The- heard from 1,0-27 establishments _ Anotlicr Honest Democrat. Another democratic official has been compelled to join Labor Commissioner Peck in recording the fact in an official report that the new tariff law has increased wages. This time it is Commissioner Peele, chief of the Indiana state bureau of statistics. He .shows that there has been a marked increase in wages in all the manufacturing centers of Indiana, Like Peck, he is a democrat, and chosen to his present j position as a democrat; but he cannot I reconcile it with his conscience to dis- | tort aud misrepresent facts to bolster a i partisan cause. No doubt some indig- j nant free trader will charge that Peele's i report was dictated by David B. Hill, of | New York, but it will have no more ! effect than did the same charge con- i cerning Peck's report, when the fact ] was made known that Peck is one of I Grover Cleveland's own appointees, and I began the investigation on which his I report is based in 1590, long before it I was known that Cleveland would be I the nominee of his party for the presi- ! deney this year.— Toledo Blade. j OPINION OF THE PRESS. | £^"Tho democratic fight is to^be j made in Indiana, Connecticut and New Jersey.
