W. Habbakgek, Clerk. What They Boast Of. It Will Do No Harm to Keep it Before the People. It, may have been observed quite frequently, even by the careless observer, that references to the political history of this country arouse a wild indignation on the part of a certain class of politicians.

Just why any intelligent American citizen should be thrown into a rage by referring to the history of the grandest nation on earth, might be a little puzzling, were the memories of the human family less faithful. This country has witnessed some exciting experiences, and in passing through such trials and dangers as have confronted it, there is always a blame to be attached somewhere. There have been traitors in all countries and at all times. There have also been "Hessians," at all times considered in the light in which they appeared during the Revolutionary War in this country. And we do not know that it is at all remarkable that such characters are the most sensitive, and the most indignant at the recounting of historical events.

In the good year 1888 this great country will be called upon to choose a Chief Magistrate for the ensuing four years. The same old parties confront each other that have confronted each other for thirty years. What shall we talk about? Not the surplus in the Treasury, for the Democratic party will either get away with that before the advent of a Republican administration next year, or it has lost its cunning. Not the tariff, for nothing throws a Democratic politician into a more intense rage than a men tion of the tariff; that party being the bitter enemy to the industrial interests of the country on that line as well as some others. Not the question of a free and fair ballot in the South, for that makes a Democratic politician lie and swear.

Not the question of the war, for that is waving the Bloody Shirt. Well, if we do not talk of any of these, what shall we talk about? We will tell you. We will talk about the history of the country as it is, and let the rough points jag those who may have put themselves in the way. In speaking of the work of the political parties, no man who has done his duty as an upright citizen need be at all alarmed he will not suffer by the reference. It is the fellow who has be caught on the wrong side that objects to touching up these old pictures.

Once in a great while a very few such eases there are, too you hear a Democrat of such tender years that his most vivid memory of the darkest spot in the history of his party takes in nothing more exciting than the whittling out of butternut pins or the cursing of "Lincoln Dogs," boast that he is "proud of the record of his party." But the boast comes with a choking sound from his throat, a3 though conscience had suddenly awakened and sought to strangle him. There is no pride there is a weighty, crushing shame and humiliation. We know hundreds of Democrats who are good men Christian men. But we have noticed that not a solitary mau of them and we are speaking now of men of sound intellects can speak of the past history of his party without strong evidences that the subject is distasteful to him, and in fact that he is ashamed of it. And why not? If we look backward, the history of the Democratic party is all black, not a redeeming spot or streak in it.

If we look forward, we find a great array of promises that past experience teaches us are hollow and meaningless throughout. 7'hat party has been the cause of disaster and attempted ruin to the country whenever and wherever it has been entrusted with power. This point needs no argument it is an indisputable fact and feature of the history of the country. Wby it is, would of course be difficult even to conceive. Why a great party, composed of American citiznns, should deliberately occupy the position of an enemy to the United States Government and people, seems unreasonable.

But the fact is, everything connected with the Democratic party is unreasonable. It was unreasonable for the Southern Democrats to hold black men in slaverj', and raise mulatto children by black women; it was unreasonable in the Democratic party to say none but Democrats shall occupy the Presidential chair in this country we'll destroy the Government before it shall be otherwise; it was unreasonable for the Southern wing of the Democratic party to fight a four-years war to destroy the Government that war iuvolving a loss of more than three hundred thousand men; it was unreasonable for the Democratic party to bankrupt the United States Treasury and run down the of the Government; it was unreasonable for the Democratic party to sympathize with the Rebellion, and go about armed, swearing that the Union sol-diers must walk over its dead body, when an ostrich could not have caught that body, in a square race; in was un-reasonable for the Democratic party to murder Lincoln, and massacre the Chisholm family, where a beautiful school-girl was deliberately murdered 1 I it was unreasonable for the Democrat- I ic party to "el ct" Grover Cleveland to the Presidency, by shooting out the Republican majorities in the Southern States; it is unreasonable in the Democratic party to come before this country as the avowed champion of Free Trade, and the enemy of American industries; it is unreasonable for that party, now that Mr. Cleveland's Free Trade manifesto has created such wide-spread indignation, to say that the views of the President have been modified, and that he wishes to main-the tariff on iron it is decidedl' and wonderfully unreasonable for intelligent men to advocate, before equally intelligent men, the safety of putting in power again a party that has shown itself everywhere, and always, an unsafe and unwise public servant. There is no ray of hope shining through the history of the Democratic party. Not a good man iu that party will attempt to produce anything good that his party has ever accomplished, or to talk of his party without prefacing the discussion by "explaining" some knotty point in the record.

For bad management, dishonesty in public affairs, cruelt-, rebellion, murder, and general unworthiness, the Democratic party has no equal in history, as to the complete blackness of its record. To say that any intelligent. inan is proud of such a pwty is to assume that shame is an unknown quantity. Pity The Smoker We publish, elsewhere, an article from the N. Y.

Mail and Express, on the annoyances of smokers. It is true that smokers do create a vast amount of annoyance in the world, and there are a great many smokers who ought to be forced to swallow the "stumps" they wallow so lovingly between there lips. The brute who will blow smoke in the face of a lady or gentleman, or still worse into the lungs of children, deserves nothing but kicks at the hands of outraged decency. But remember, friends, that the poor smoker has sensibilities, too. To pen the smoker up iu a car, omnibus or hotel and turn loose on him the garrulous bore, the one who has a great load of wisdom to unload for the benefit of mankind, and who insists on giving his views, whether an3'body wants to hear or not, and that presence is a torture to the smoker.

Shut the latter up in a car with a lot of pretty girls, before whom the modern dude is displaying his affected manners, and all the Havanas in the world wjH not remove from the heart of the poor smoker the yearning desire to put the dude upon the seat and sit upon him. Place the nervous smoker in the presence of the man who imagines himself a vocalist, and who insists upon criticising all the leading singers, and illustrating the points of his criticism by loudmouthed bellowing, and the smoker will wonder why all the brickbats are in the street, and none in the car. Place the smoker in a crowded place where there are a number of girls who have an ambition to be considered "fast," and he forgets the annoyance caused by his cigar in trying to imagine whether the mothers of those girls wear slippers, and if so whether thejT know how to use them. And so it is not necessary to go on enuumer-atiug the trying ordeals through which the poor smoker is compelled to pass in his cloudy pilgrimage through the world. The sight of what seems to him greater annoyances, seems to console him in his role of nuisance, and when we undertake to lecture him upon the crookedness of his way, he blows out a cloud of smoke, with the admonition to "go talk to those who have no regard for the feelings of others." The grievances then assume the shape of a conflict between the senses of hearing and While the smoker fijls the noses of his neighbors with indignation, possibly, they may jar his ears with the most excruciating tortures.

Let us have charity for the poor smoker. He will quit his awful habit sometime though it may not be until he dies. The lingo made popular b.Y the sensational law-suit between Miss Clara Campbell aud Mr. Charles Arbuckle is about as comprehensive and intelligent as that of an old German who formerly kept a doggery in this town. He didn't have m.

or "h's and k's" on his Joor, but he came into this office one day and ordered a sign printed, bearing the letters S. Grocery." This somewhat puzzled the printer, of course, and he inquired the meaning of the mystic characters. "Vy, H. S. Grocery Hole Sale Grocery, to pe sure." Pearson McCoy was sentenced to the Penitentiary for life for his part iu the killing of Dr.

Northup. One man killed in the prime of life, two men, father and son, shut up in prison for life, and a family broken up for what? To vindicate the majesty aud power of a low-down doggery. What a picture! The surveyors are still at work on the big deal grounds at Wellston, and as soon as Spring sets in things will be boosted along at a lively rate. P. T.

We have been hearing a great deal during the past two weeks concerning seven or eight Republican Members of the State Senate who are accused of bolting the caucus nomination for Senate offices. We have expressed the sentiment of this paper as being opposed to the course of the Senators in question because of its tendency to divide and weaken the Republican forces. But there is another side to this picture. When the "monarch of the waste" goes by with the speed of the wind, with the swift-footed pursuers in full cry at his heels, there is some argument to be used in favor of the pursued.

Yea, the argument is mostly on that side. The picture has some application to the preset situation in the Ohio Senate. There is not the least doubt but the boltiug Senators honestly believe that unfairness was used in the selection of candidates by the caucus, whether such was the case or not. Believing thus they acted the part of men by refusing to endorse the caucus action. But is this the beginning of transgression in this line? We are reminded in this connection of a little meeting of Republicans in this place not many months ago.

There had been three or four halfwitted-fellows assuring us that the kind of Republicanism we advocated had been supplanted by a newer and grander style. We attended the meeting in order to ascertain if possible our duty as a Republican. The meeting resolved itself into a sort of class meeting in which men began to criticise each other's fealty to the old party. A young Republican solemnly arose and moved that "every man in the house who had never bolted the Republican ticket be requested to raise his hand." The Chairman declared the motion out of order! But one man in all the assembly could show as straight a Republican record as we could, and we went away in a meditative mood. Thus it is in every case accusation the man who to cast the first stone can of human is entitled rarely be found.

We notice among those most severe upon Senator Davis for his bolting, our old friend Alderman of the Marietta Register. Unless we mistook the tone of Bro. Alderman's paper very much, he, personally, bolted the nomination' of Davis! Just why Davis should be censured for doing what Jiad beeu done against him, is one of the strange features in polities. The trouble and danger is that citizens generally do not give sufficient attention to the local canvasses, and the same rule applies to Legislative caucuses. The voter goes into a County or Senatorial Convention and discovers that a little knot of office-seekers have "fixed" things in advance, and all he is expected to do is to endorse or ratify the work.

In all such cases the honest Republican or honest Democrat has an up-hill fight in trying to convince the people that the nomination was fairly secured. We have known nominations to be farmed out at least two years ahead of the day of nomination. This is a practical disfranchisement of the better element of the party interested, and this is what causes bolts on one hand. On the other hand, the man who is constant' seeking office will bolt every time a man is nominated who does not suit him. These things should not be.

In the first place, every semblance to "ring" work should be killed in the Convention, and thus teach a lesson that would leave the party in a healthy condition. After a nomination is made, political affairs ought to be in such a shape that every Republican could conscientiously support the nominee. In short, the "bolt" is generally the result of a ''bolt." And the Senators can boldly and fearlessly ask that "he that is without (bolting) sin, let him raise the first howl," "Congressman Thompson has got another formidable opponent to his third term business. Hon. H.

S. Bun-dy, of Jackson has entered the race and will no doubt be able to make things pretty interesting for Thompson. Waverly Watchman. We do not know that Congressman Thompson is energetically rushing any "Third Term Business," or that Mr. Bundy has actively entered the race.

But there are some thimgs we do know in this connection. We know that, Col. Thompson's sole aim is to serve his constituency faithfully and well, and if they shall see fit to return him for a third terrrj in Congress, jfc will be his effort to so represent that constituency as that the people of his District will be proud of his record. We know also that if that grand old man, that "Old Man Eloquent," Hon. H- S.

Bundy, shall come before the people as a candidate, and shall be so fortunate as to be nominated, he will have no more earnest and enthusiastic supporter than Hon. A. C. Thompson. We kuow of no man in the Republican ranks who has done more faithful and effective service than Mr.

Bundy. For a generation the people of Jackson County have just as confidently expected to hear Bundy's voice in the campaign, as that one campaign succeeded another He has always been especially strong upon the tariff question, and his speeches have been the strongest aud most easily understood, as well as the most enlightening upon this important subject, that have been delivered in the district. Mr. Bundy was defeated in 1867 on account of his active work for the Civil Rights Bill a wrong to him that should have been righted long ago. Yet he has not sulked, but has ever been ready for service, wherever and whenever called upon.

He is a Republican in the full sense of that grand term, aud the volunteer soldier has no better In fact, we can think of no man just now who could more fittingly represent the Eleventh District, with all its manufacturing interests, than H. S. Bundy, who has been intimately associated with work-ingmenVifarmers and manufacturers all his life. In fact there are lots of available men in this county, among the very best of whom we may be excused for naming Harry S. Willard, of Wellston.

If the people choose either of these there will be no mistake though we cannot say that either is a candidate. The gallant soldier, Thompson, will suit us; the grand old veteran in the Republican ranks, Bundy, will suit us; any good Republican will suit us; the only thing to do do is to go in to win, and win gloriously. Charles Arbuckle has to pay forty-five thousand dollars for hugging and kissing a fat Irontol? girl by mail when for less money he could have married some sweet girl from Ironton, Jackson, or some other Southern Ohio city, and had his h's and k's at home. We have a poor opinion of Charles Arbuckles' business sense. There is a ludicrous procession rcoviDg up and down this country.

On the one hand is the Demociatic party, howling that it has more money in the U. S. Treasury than it knows what to do with on the other hand a crowd of men and women holding Government bonds and saying, "here, take these and pay us what you owe us." That picture represents the sum total of Democratic statesmanship. Robert Scott, a three-years man from this county, was paroled from the Penitentiary last week. This is the young man who got into the quarrel in Oak Hill which afterward resulted in a fight, in Madison Township.

Fred. Mussey, of the Commercial Gazette, has applied for a divorce from his wife, the daughter of Hon. Charles Foster. It is a pity that so brilliant a fellow as Mussey couldn't get along any better than that. From the Independent.

Senator Sherman's Great Speech. Senator Sherman, than whom no man in this country, whether in the Senate or out of it, is a higher authority on economic questions, last week opened the debate on the Free Trade doctrines contained in President Cleveland's Message. Unlike the President, he thoroughly knows what he is talking about, and understands both the principles and the facts connected with tariff protection of American industry as opposed to the heresies of the. Free Trade wing of the Democratic party, with which the President has allied himself. The speech ought to be read by every man in the United States.

It not only represents the principles of the Republican party in the past, which, by protecting the industries of this country, has given it such wonderful prosperity, and enabled it in a short time to pay off nearly half of the National debt, but clearly indicates what should be the general policy of Republicans in both Houses of Congress in dealing with the surplus and tariff questions, and also what will be the great issue before the people in the next Presidential election. The Senator, being proverbially a man of courage, is not at all frightened by the President's effort to get up a scare among the people over the surplus iu the Treasury, and thus rush the country, without due thought and reflection, into a policy prejudicial to its best interests, While not opposed to, but rather favoring such a revision of our Federal tax system, as will lessen the amount of revenue collected, without abandoning the protective principles and thus putting the industries of the country in peril from the poorly paid labor of other countries, he justly said: "Even without a reduction of taxa. tion, the surplus revenue might have been applied for great national objects, but for the vetoes of the President, for the failure of the Secretary of the Treasury to exercise plain discretionary powers conferred upon him by law, aud the failure of the Democratic House of Representatives to make appropriations for some of the highest national objects demanded by the people." This is simply a square statement of truth. The fact is that the Democratic party, as represented in Congress, aud by the President, has acted as if it meant to have an unusually large surplus in the Treasury, and then cry oat for tax reduction on this this ground, in order to assail our protective tariff system. The President, as the Senator correctly says, urges no objections to our internal revenue taxes, but rather proposes to let them stand as they are, while he loads down our tariff taxes with opprobrious epithets, and proposes here to klaoe the entire reduction under color of getting rid of an unnecessary surplus.

This looks like a pretext for breaking down a system under which the country has enjoyed great prosperity. We have not space to give even a synopses of Senator Sherman's argument on the tariff question itself. What he says in regard to the importation of what are called "raw materials," will suffice as a good illustration of his general position. The President proposes that all such materials shall be admitted free of tariff duties. Taking the wool growers, the hemp and flax producers, and the iron and coal miners of the country, who are the producers of "raw as a pertinent example, he says: "No reasons could be given why wool should be made free and woolen goods should be protected.

If there must be cheap woollens; and if the labor of the farmer in producing the wool is not to be protected against undue competition against Australia or Bueuos Ayres, then that of the cloth maker should not be protected against competition with the looms of Manchester and Lyons. If there are to be low duties on iron ore, there will have to be low duties on iron and i teel in their various forms." The plain truth is that "raw materials," so-called, that are produced in this country, and that need protection, as wool, for example, are just as much entitled to it as the articles manufac tured out of these materials. In both cases the protection applies to the la bor employed in producing these ma terials or articles, whether it be the labor of the farmer engaged in raising sheep or producing wools or that of the manufacturer in turning the wool into woolen goods. It is in both cases the protection of American labor against the pauper labor of other countries; and where such labor needs protection it must be afforded by tariff duties on the products of for eign labor or the rate of American wages must be reduced. One or the other is inevitable.

Senator Sherman's plan is to give the protection, and thus encourage American labor at fair rate of wages. This is the doc trine of the Republican party, of which he is so distinguished a leader, The country ought to thank the Senator for his timely and grand speech on this subject. His name has frequently been mentioned as a candi date of the Republican party for the Presidency. Nobody doubts his com petency for the duties of this high office. His public and private record is free from any stain to disqualify him.

He is a thoroughly tried man, and has never been found wanting anywhere, or uneqmal to any position in which he has been placed.

He would be strong as a Presidential candidate, before the people, and would, if nominated, make the Republican party a unit in his support.

But Green's August Flower has done a wonderful work in reforming tbis sad business and making the American people so healthy that they can enjoy their meals and be happy. Remember: No happiness without health.

But Green's August Flower brings health and happiness to the dyspeptic. Ask your druggist for a bottle. Seventy-five cents. It is to be hoped that Sternberger and David will build a good hall on their recent purchase, the Jones Op-ra House. Jackson needs a first-class hall.
