McMeans, of Orange township will be presented to the republican voters of Noble county, as a candidate for Treasurer of said county, subject to the decision of the republican noiiiinating convention. Many Citizens and Soldieiis.  8hkriff.  We are authorized to say that the name of Samuel Braden, Jr., of Noble towuship, (present incumbent) will be presented to the republican county nominating convention, August 21, as a candidate for re-nomination tothe office of slier-W of Noble county, subject to the decision ot that convention.  hkcokdeu.  The many friends of John C. V'ought. of Wayne township will present his name to the republican county nominating convention, as a candidate for Recorder of Noble county, subject to the decision of that convention.  We are requested to announce the name of F. D. Spencer, of Noble township, as a candidate for Recorder of Noble county, subject to the decision of the republican nominating convention to be held In Albion, August 21,1884.  Edwabd McPherson predicts that New York will give Blaine and Logan a majority of 75,000.  Gov. Cleveland's step-father will vote for Blaine and Logan. He thinks his step-son cannot carry New York, nor Erie county.  On Sunday last New York, Philadelphia, and the cities along the Atlantic coast were terribly shaken up by an earthquake. No serious damage was done.  The Pittsburg Dispatch intimates that the mormon church promised $250,000, to the democratic campaign fund if the party did not condemn their pet institution of polygamy. The platform is as silent as the grave on that important subject.  A ballot was recently taken on one of the street car lines of New York City, of the men employed. There were 1,024 ballots cast Of this number Blaine had 890; Cleveland, 100; Butler, 34. This indicates the course the working men of the city intend to take in the election this year. Straws show which way the wind blows.  THE CONVENTION AT ROME CITY.  To-day there will be four political conventions held at Bome City, in all of which the republicans of Noble county are directly interested. These are first, the congressional convention for the Twelfth District Delegates from Allen, Whitley, Noble, DeKalb, LaGrange and Steuben will participate in this convention. From the present oulook, it is quite probable that Theron P. Keator, of Ft Wayne, will be the nominee. Second, the joint-representative convention for the counties of DeKalb, Noble and Elkhart, and as the candidate is conceded to the latter county, and as but one man—Hon. J. E. Thompson—is spoken of by Elkhart people for the position, it is very probable that he will be nominated by acclamation. Third, the judicial convention for the nomination of a prosecutor for the district composed of the counties of Steuben, DeKalb and Noble, and as the present prosecutor, H. C. Peterson, has given almost universal satisfaction, there will probably be no opposition to his re-nomination. Fourth, the senatorial convention, to choose a candidate for the state senate to represent the counties of Noble and LaGrange. As Noble furnished the last senator in the person of .the late Hon. Henry Hostetter, LaGrange will be expected to furnish the candidate. We have heard several names mentioned for the position, without knowing that the gentleman so named will be candidates; but all the people of Noble expect is that a good man be named. After the conventions are through with their work, the people will be adressed by Hon. W. H. Calkins, republican candidate for governor of Indiana.  The New York 5un (dem.) virtually concedes that the Cihcago convention knew of the charges against Cleveland, and says that before the recent address of the independents, George William Curtis and others knew that Mr. Cleveland had been branded as a moral leper. Nevertheless these political saints (?) declared the "paramount issues of the campaign to be moral rather than poliitcal." Now the Evening Post, of New York, af-tw virtually admitting all that has been charged against the democratic candidate, says that the paramount issues are political rather than moral. How do G. W. Curtis, Carl Schurz and other so-called independents like the political dish that is set before them?  The prospects are very good for West Virginia to wheel into line for Blaine and Logan.  Col. Plympton, chairman of the democratic state central committee of Massachusetts, has resigned. He gives it as his opinion that Blaine will carry that state by 30,000 majority. _  Republican prohibitionists can readily see how Mr. Hendricks expects to use them to the benefit of the democratic party, when they read what he said in an interview at Saratoga recently. He said: "The prohibition vote in the west will probably be small; but, great or small, it will come from the republican party."  Ninety-two million passengers were carried by the Manhattan elevated railway last year. By "Cleveland's veto of the 5-cent fare bill, that great corporation pocketed the snug sum of $2,300,000, which had the law been permitted to stand would have gone to buy bread and meat and other necessaries of life for the working-men.  One year ago Harper Brothers had such a high appreciation of Mr. Blaine that they offered to meet him on the sidewalk "Mrith uncovered head, reverently." Failing to get the job of publishing Mi*. Blaine's book, Mr. Curtis is now doing their dirty work in traducing the character of Mr. Blaine in one of Harper's publications.  Some weeks ago it was given out that Henry Ward Beecher could not support Cleveland because of his immoral record, but now it is asserted that Mr. Beecher has become convinced that all is right and will give the demootitic candidate his cordial support What a clever piece of acting this has been, but even it will not deceive the people when they learn that the man who made the investigation into the Buffalo scandal at Beecher's nnstance, is a member of Gov Cleveland's staff, holding the position of Judge Advocate-general, a position, too, that he received because his app(Mntment was indorsed and urged by Beeechor. Of course the leading miniators of Buffalo are to be disbelieved because this member of Cleve-iMfed's pditical family says that the ehaiges axe anfoanded. To use a fflialMBperean pbrase, this is "too tliin."  A Remarkable Escape.  Mrs. Mary A. Daily, of Tunkhan-nock, Pa., was afflicted for six years with asthma and bronchitis, during which time the best physicians could give no relief. Her life was dispair-ed of, until in last October she procured a bottle of Dr. King's New Discovery, when immediate relief was felt, and by continuing its use for a short time was completely cured, gaining in flesh 50 tt) in a few months. Free trial bottles of this certain cure of all throat and lung diseases at Huston & Molen's drugstore. Large bottles $1.00.  What would the country think of James G. Blaine wore a dozen or more of the leading ministers of Augusta to brand him as a libertine ? In the city of Buffalo wo find the following array of ministers of the gospel uniting in the declaration that Cleveland's moral conduct has not been such as they can commend. Look at the list: Rev. Dr. Mitchell, First Presbyterian Church; Rev. Dr. Gordon, First Baptist Church ; Rev. Dr. Ball, Hudson Street Baptist Church; Rev. Dr. Greene, Lafayette Street Baptist Church; Rev. Dr. Hubbel, North Presbyterian Church ; Rev. Mr. Chivers, Prospect Avenue Baptist Church; Rev. H. G. Lord, Westside Presbyterian Church. The charges are sustained by leading merchants and business men of Buffalo, and in fact have not been denied by any one who knows anything about the matter, except wann but indiscreet political "cronies" of the would-be president The people will not consent to elect a man of that character to the chief magistracy of this great nation.  Rumobs have been current during the past week that Hendricks has been thinking of withdrawing from the ticket Those who know the man, however, feel perfectly assured that after intriguing to defeat Mc Donald and get himself on the ticket instead, it would require a forty-mule power to pull him off.  —If you are tired taking the large old-fashioned gri^ng pills try Carter's Little Liver Pilk and take some comfort A man can't stand everything. One pill a dose. 34ml  The Republicans can say what they may about Cleveland's official record as sheriff of Erie county. New York, but one thing is certain, he never fired on the Union flag.—Ft. Wayne Journal.  Very true, and you might have added that neither did Hendricks. You might also have said that neither of the democratic standard-bearers ever fired upon those who were striking down the American flag. Hendricks said he wouldn't do this himself; neither would he advise others to do what he would not do.  ISAAC P. GRAY, STAND UP.  The Winchester Journal is one of Colonel Gray's home papers, and has a right to put to its neighbor divers and sundry questions. I| therefore asks Isaac to stand up and answer the following:  We want to ask you if you are the ^me Isaac P. Gi^y who wanted the Republican nomination for Congress in 1806?  Did you not make a speech at Richmond in March of that year, in which you termed the Démocrate as copperheads every time you referred to them ?  Didn't you say that you Wanted it distinctly understood that when you said copperhead you meant a man who sympathized with the South during the rebellion ?  Did you not say that the copperheads of Indiana would have joined the rebellion if they had elected a copperhead Governor?  Did you not say that the copperheads were afraid of amalgamation, and wanted a law between them and the negro, and thought every negro woman they met wanted to rush into their arms and amalgamate them ?  Did you not assure the copperheads that there was no danger, as no respectable negro woman would marry a copperhead ?  Did you not say that if you were in the Legislature you would vote for a law that would fine and punish any negro found associating or keeping company with a copperhead ?  Did you not say that yoii were opposed to rebels being allowed the right to vote at all ?  Did you not call the Democrats all copperheads, and charge that they had formed a secret order known as Sons of Liberty f6r the purpose of freeing the rebel prisoners at Camp Morton, and aiding the rebellion by discouraging enlistments and encouraging desertions and hiding deseii-ers from the army.  If you made these charges, were they all true ? If they were not true, why did you make tiiem? If they were true, how can you as an honest man, work with the "copperhead" party now?  WHAT THEY MEAN.  Before the independents issued their address, the secretary of the Buffalo Telegraph company went to New York and offered to lay before George William Curtis the proof of the charges against Cleveland's private character, but this man Curtis, who was too pure to support Mr. Blaine, would not hear the evidence; said it was too late; that the address was prepared and would have to stand. In that address they boldly challenged the character of the standard-bearers by saying that the issues of the campaign were moral rather than political.  The democrats are now inwardly cursing the independents, through whose influence Cleveland was nominated at Chicago. He was distinctively the independents' candidate, and held up by them as an angel of purity compared with James G Blaine. Harper's Weekly struck the keynote of the campaign when it declared that the issues were to be moral rather than political, and at once the democracy all along the line fell into the pit prepared for them by their new formed associates, by making a villianous onslaught upon the character of Mr. Blaine and all who were his supporters. Republicans were loth to enter a campaign of this character, but in self-defense were compelled to fight the devil with fire, and in doing so only use the evidence placed in their hands by democrats themselves. Now, it is amusing to see these same democrats crying quits, and these same independents gravely asserting that the paramount issnes of the campaign are political rather than moriL develaiid's private record is a plagne-ifoi that will not oat At «Mr Wing.  What does the democratic platform mean by a tariff sufficient only for an economical administration of the government ?  The country is greatly perplexed by the enigma.  A Chattanooga democratic editor reads it and writes "Saved from the blighting effects of free-trade!"  A Nashville democratic editor read it and denoimced it as a dodge.  Up nort^ the democratic papers treat it as a free trade plank with incidental protection.  That is somewhat incongruous, but a democratic paper doesn't stop on a little incongruity when it is in a corner.  This tariff plank will probably be more than a nine-day's wonder. The mystery is not likely to be solved this season, except by construction.  Meantime workingmen and other people whose business is directly affected by the tariff are beginning to experience a feeling of uncertainty and to look elsewhere for something tangible on which to pin their faith.  This they are finding in the frank and unmistakable utterance of the tariff plank in the republican platform.  It unequivocally favors the protection of American labor and industries.  It has no uncertain soimd. Any man may read and understand.  This is the contrast between the two planks. The republican plank means protection; the democratic plank means all things to all men with a mental reservation for free-trada—South Benà Register.  These are Solid Facts.
