In a statement issued by Mr. Paul Klein to the voters of his district he says that until "our a'^ministration the books of tl;e county had never been audited." i have been county treasurer ever since the present Democratic board of commissioners have been in ofRce and the books of the ^unty have never been audited during that time, except such an audit as tlie law requires and which was always (<one unt^er the Republican administration. The discrepancy in the account of the county with the fiscal agency in New York was discovered in my office and neither Mr. Klein nor the commissioners had anything to do with recovering the monay until I urged them to act. In kmking up that account the fiscal agency account was audited and notiiing else^ I have repeatedly urged the eommissioii- era to audit the books and they'have refused to.do so. M. F.

Aftant A CLEAN CAMPAIGN. Whatever the results of the election tomorrow may be as to the cotm* ty ticket.—and that every man on it will be elected, there seems no reasonable doubt.—the Republican party may" well congratulate itself upon the fair, clean and high minded campaign that has been made for its success. The campaign has been vigorous and ;aggre9sivc bi^t..t^'ro hifs^^iot bee|}.du >tft cQnuCcted -with it ^jlch hap-*not hech. opeu*,anjJ above baard. anjl not li wprd ha.<? been said JOr whfet an «poIogy ovcd be offcred^, liThere. have hcen no A}Jsc'an^-defai]p^.ory attacks jiipon opposius. candid4tesT~ there has pbecn no appeal to clQ $s prejndi^. there have .been no. ^VP.ptlk 'Kohr iroorbaci^ launched, thefqj haVd^. hcen^ tip lyin^and U&lous .'p4N |jpaF-^ 3kuIts ,-;^rom ije !ginni4E^*'tfe pj!jbfi<^_ cai ^gn *^ - t only"! i^f..^e co« date]| 'aM,fthQ so^n^ prinflples fot "whlei not upon ridicule aud cali detraction. The contrast in all these particulars between the Republican campai^ and the campaign waged by the opponents of Ihi; Republican party is so marked tliat nobody can have failed to! observe it. And this difference- between the two campaigns, if there existed no oilier reason, ought in itself '.o by sufficient to insure the election of the entire Republican ticket. There have been times possibly when the candidate who could make the hitler- Cat attack upon his opponent was •uost likolv to win. But thoso-times, 'ortuuately. have long since passed away. Tho sense of decency and fair play has been growing stronger every vcar and the people have come perfectly to understand that the party which resorts to personal viHJlcatlon does so through a conscious lack of merit cither iu lis candidates or in tho principles for which they stands A campaign of abuse is a confession of Inferiority wiilch the people are . not slow to understand, and upon which they may be trusted to pass a righteous judgment. The Register has' already called attention to the high character and ability of the candidates on the Republican county ticket. It is glad in this the closing hour of the campaign to point to the carap ^gn they hare made aa a further evidence of their fitness for" the trust which the i>eopIe are asked to repose in them. No better evidence of their worthiness couW be afforded than the fact that they have not permitted their desire lor success to betray them ^nto any act which might not bear the scnitinr of all the people or fat speaking any. word which a self respecting genfleaan might not otter. That the people of Allen County win show their appreciation by their votes tinamnv does not admit of a reaaooal^ dpdUi / .
