Surveyor Andrew B, Irvin Commissioner — A- •*• Morrow CommlfHioiier I. N. Crawford Instructions to Voters. Thero are two tickets. The State and National candidates are on one and the County on the other. Stamp both tickets. To vote a straight ticket stamp anywhere in the square surrounding the eagle at the head of each ticket. To rote a mixed ticket stamp the square at the left of each candidate you wish to vote for and do not stamp in the square at the head of the ticket. If you are u. democrat but want the ' republican, county ticket elected, stamp your rooster/ on the National State ticket and the eagle on the county ticket. COCXTY taxes will be almost doubled next year and even with this the county will run in debt if the ring- is allowed to control things. IT should bo borne in mind that the increase of taaxes ordered by the last legislature was ordered to raise revenues to cancel a State debt of $8,000,000 created by democratic mismanagement in Indiana. ONE man's vote ought to be as good as another's in a nation proclaiming equal rights as a foundation stone of government. But this aot the case. In Indiana, by reason of the democratic gerrymander, ono vote in some counties is worth twice as much as ono vote in other counties. Legislators are given to democratic counties with small votes while republican comities with large votes get a ' joint representative with a democratic county having a larger democratic majority than the republican county has republican majority. This insures 3. democratic legislature and deprives the peopled their right to change the party in power when it is deemed best. The public is not allowed e. ihance to elect and the election is a farce. . THEKE is a. wealth of argument to the man who thinks in the success of the Republican policy in the last four years. Both parlies made predictions about the MoKinley bill. The Democratic party predicted higher prices and disaster, tho Republican party lower prices and prosperity. The result of these predictions ought to convince the voter who is open to conviction. Prices are lower, wages are higher and the avenues of honorable employment are greatly iacreased. If the voters of Indiana vote as they in their own hearts feel that they ought to vote Indiana will give Harrison 25,000 majority. MISTAKES are frequently made by those who are too sure that they will will not make mistakes. The last legislature changed the method of voting a straight ticket and yet there are those who having carefully studied the method two years ago refuse to read anything now upon the subject under the impression thatthey know all about it. The old method was to stamp the Erst square to the left of the ticket. The new method is to stamp in the square surrounding the emblem at the head of the ticket. Just for curiosity ask your Republican neighbor how he is going to stamp DEMOCRATIC TICKET. DOT. For Presidential Elector at Large, WILLIAM H. BRACKEN. For Presidential Elector at Large, JOHN C. ROBINSON. INSTRUCTIONS TO VOTERS. The above emblems and the accompanying names represent the form of the h'oad of the ticket to be used in the approaching election. . Observe closely the following instruction to voters which are the same as will he printed on the cards that are to be posted at the polls on election day as required by law. First. You must get your ballots of tho polling clerks in the election room. Second. If you want to vote a straight ticket, stamp within tho largo square at tho held of the ticket contain- his ticket and see how many are not posted on the new method. THE PRESIDENTIAL CHOICE. THE evening hoodwinker is very much exercised over its allegation that President Harrison appointed his father-in-law to a small office. There is nothing-to show that such an appointment was made and if it was it does not appear that the duties of the office were not fully and properly performed. The editor of the Pharostias a father-in-law and why should President Harrison not have one? And what is the odds if President Harrison helps his father-in-law instead of having his father-in-law help him? The hoodwinker seems to . be' unduly excited on this father-in-law question. THE Democratic party started out by advocating slavery, the slavery of labor. In almost every Democratic State the convict labor system now prevails and Grover Cleveland himself opposed the law prohibiting the importation of convict labor products. The leaders of the Democratic party, those .who direct the party policy, believe in free trade which will put the laboring men of the United States in direct competition with the most degraded labor that can be found in the world. And yet some laboring men will vote the Democratic ticket' Tariff mcinres. An old pay roll ol the Pitman Manufacturing company of Laconla. N. H., stows thai wages of. all hands In 1S4S averaged lor ten hours'work. The pay roll of the very same concern In 1S32 shows an average ol SL57 lor a day of ten hours. That Is the way wages have gone under protection. —Xaw York Press. The Indianapolis jSews (Independent), in an editorial on presidential preferences, in its issue of Sept. 2S, has the following: Either Mr. Cleveland or Mr. Harrison is to be President for the next foar years. -Which shall it be? We do not profess prophecy. Making predictions is "idlewasteof thought.'' Whichought it to be? That is a practical question which must appeal to each individual voter. Which do you think it ought to be? Every man interested in the welfare of his country, every man who does not ignore his right nor neglect his duty to vote, must face that question and answer it for himself. The choice is between these two men. What is your choice? Xow, of course, the Democrat rock- ribbed' in the faith has no doubts to solve. His choice was made for him before the world was. And the stalwart Republican, who could no more cease to boa Republican than the Etbiop could change his skin or the leopard his spots —kfe,"too, has no choice to make; it is made already, in the nature of things. But all are not Democrats or Republicans of the sorts described. There are many mon—increasing numburs as the years go by, we believe—who do not take their politics, we will not say so seriously but, so thoughtlessly, so heredi- tarily, so uniformly. Those arc the independents with leanings or preferences of one sort or another to either the one or the other party, but to whom party names and shibboleths lightly appeal; who care nothing, or very little, for the success of any party; who care much for th'e progress of certain priucipies. These men vote with ono party or the other as they are convinced they can further the cause they have at heart. ••> It is from this body of voters, and from tho young men who vote for the first time, that each party in the close States REPUBLICAN TICKET.

If you do not, wish to vote a straight ticket you must not stamp the large square containing tho device of your party, but you must stamp tho small squaro to the left of the name of each candidate for whom you desire to vote, on whatever list o'f candidates it may be. If the large square at the head of the ticket is stamped, and the ballot is stamped at any other place, it is void and cannot be counted, unless there be no candidate fur some office in the list printed r.ndcr such stamped d»3vice, in which case he may indicate his choice for must seek to draw in order to make sere ot winning. What are the independents goinr to do in Indiana? Some of them made haste ostentatiously to declare in favor of Mr. Cleveland, before he had spoken or written of his relation to the Chicago platform. But it may be doubtod whether they spoke for the mass of independents—for even those with antecedent Democratic preferences. In 13SS the News supported Mr. Harrison and gave good reasons why independent voters should vote for him. Since then the paper has changed hands, to be sure, but it has not changed principles or • purposes. Mr. Harrison has made a far abler President than even his friends, who promised much, predicted.- Kc has in many ways compelled approval and admiration on the part of his political enemies. He is ustter equipped e.very way. now tba.n ne wa: four years ago; less hampered, too, by political obligations, * ;- '- * Air. Harrison has been a credit and an honor to our State. He is one of us, our fellow-citizen, our neighbor. Tho State bad honored him and he had proved worthy of the honor. This Nation honored him, and he roso level to his high opportunity. State and Is'ation are now asked to give a vote of confidence. Has cot the State confidence? Shall it not say so? Men who voted for him four years ago against the same opponent should want good reason for reversing, themselves this year. Indiana would cut a poor figure in the sisterhood of States if she'should refuse a, vote of confidence to the son vho has honored her so highly, in the- eyes of thi: Nation. In the eyes of the world. Cleveland and Pension Vetoes. (Jen. Daniel Sickles of Xew York, though a Jife-'long .• Democrat, declares that he will not vote for Mr. Cleveland, because of his brutal veto message asainst pensions. Many a poor fellow whose application was thus defeated. ent to his grave, iiud left liis wife without this help, and it is no wouder that Gen, Sickles and t-housands ot such sol- diersfael iis they do toward the man who bired a substitute to go into the army in 2is place. THE WILDCAT BANKS, T!ie Democratic Proposal to .Restore Them. In view of the fact that there is an Indiana statute abundantly broad under which to open free banks, it becomes very important to consider what tho Democratic party meant by resolving in favor of repealing the national act taxing their" circulation 10 per cent That act really is now the only barrier to a restoration of tho whole brood of wild cat banks which during IS.'O and 1SOO defrauded and fieecid the people of those times. There is a new generation of young men urown up since then who do not know the history of those times. Mr. George G. Eodgors, who in 1S54 lived on his farm in Bartholomew Counts', this State, says ho remembers the troubles of that period well. lie writes as follows of his own experience: "1 had fattened sixty head of hogs which I shipped to Madison to market by the then old Madison & Indianapolis railroad. I rccnivccl pay in the bills of one or two Indiana free batiks, and went to Cincinnati the next day by tho, boat to buy my salt for the season. Wo used the Kanawha, Virginia, salt then. I bought several barrels for myself and neighbors, and when I went to pay lor it (it was then about S3,:!"; a barrel) they told me that my bank bills wore worth only Q2 cents on the dollar. I bad to stand the shave and.took tho salt on the boat to Madison, where I thought I would bay tho balance of tho things I wanted, as it was in my own State, But when I went to the store to buy some shirtings and other things, they told ino. that one of the banks I had bills on had broken.

The stamp mast be placed within or on the square or the ballot is void and can not be counted. Third. Do notmutilatc your ballot, or mark it either by scratching a. name off or writing one on, or in any other way, except by the stamping on the square or squares, as before mentioned. Otherwise the ballot will not be counted. Fourth After stamuiny your ballots, .and before leaving the booth, fold them separately, so that the face of them can not be seen and =o that,the initial letters and the other was worth only 50 cents on the dollar. Yes, I remember those times mislity well. No one ever knew his money would be worth anything In twenty-four hours after ho took it. 1 never want to sec a return ot such times again. No man can get my vote who favors restoring the old free bank system. I am astonished that the Democratic National Convention resolved to repeal the 10 per cent, tax, and to favor such a moner policy apain." •FARMERS AND THE TARIFF. TIic Influence oi'Tarifl:Legislation on'Shecp Husbandry. Xo industry seems to have been more sensitive to tariff legislation than sheep husbandry. Under the protective tariff of 1SG7, trom 1SSO to 1SS3 the sheep of the United S:ates mcreasod ia number 24 per cent. Then in 1SS4 the new tariff act of T S3 took effect and between that date and 1SSS the number of shseo decreased 17 pe.r cent. In the period last mentioned ^Ir. Cleveland's Secretary of the Ireasury, Mr. Planning, wrote his free wool report to Congress. That was in 1SSO. This was followed by President Cleveland's famous free trade message to Congress in 1S37, in which he strongly advocated the placing of wool on the free list, and then again in 1SSS tne Mills bill passed tho House, putting wool on the free list As already stated these influences sent ine shoc.p to tho shambles by the thousand?, as the farmers became alarmed, and there was a decrease of 17 per cent, in thi! number of shpep. In the latter part of 1SSS the Mills bill was defeated in the Senate. And in 1SOO the 5IcKir:!oy bill was passed increasing 'the tariff on wool, and from 1SSS to 1S92 sheep have increased in number 7 per cent in tne United States. Tho wool crowing associations of nearly every Stateduriag'Ol and '92 passed strong resolutions against tampering with tho tariff on woo!, because this fluctuating 'legislation was so hurtful to the industry. But in spite of this united action of the farmers of the United States, tho Springer Bill was passed this year putting foreign wool on the free list. Tho aggravating feature of this measure to the farming interests was, that it puts a high duty on manufactured woolen goods, and yet put this product of the farm on tho free list, giving the manufacturers protection, but compelling the farmers to compete with foreign production. Wool is now lower In London on account of tho greatly increased production of Australia and other countries. Therefore if tho Senate had passed the Springer Bill, lino cloth- first timo, go to tho polls as tne avowed chai"pions of tree trade." [J'rojn the Losdou'T&aos.} "The United States do not approach, tho question from the same poiut of view as ourselves. Tho object of their statesmen is not to secure tho larsest amount of wealth for t,ho country generally, but to keep i:p, by whatever moans, tho standard of comfort among the laboring classes.' 1 Those sample extracts from English free trade papers show the spirit of that policy without sham, and will giro tho reader an laea how much the Enslish. free traders desire t lie election of Mr. Clcvlaud agidn. They know that it would bo gre.atly to English interests to make him President This is.a good time to stand by American interests, and wliilo we havo prosperity to let well enough aloiio. — -»- 'TSCj PEOPLE'S TICKET.
