Governor Hayes was waited on yesterday and asked if lie would or- der an election i.i the Third district for a Representative iu Congress to supply tbo place of Ambassador Schunck. He hnd been officially notified of the resignation. That is admitted. Tho Inw says the Gov- ernor in such cases order an election. Governor I-Inyes says he WILL NOT order an election. Suppose the nineteen Ohio Rep- resentatives and the two Ohio Sen- ators had received and accepted foreign and bad left the Slate wholly unrepresented in Con- would Governor Hayes have dared trample under foot the refusing to order special and thus have left the the third State in the Union entirely unrepre- sented The principle is the same. The amount of it is The Radicals are afraid of an election in the Third without the aid of the money that poured in from New England and Pennsylvania to help tbe champion of the eneral of his last fall. They dare not meet the people face to face iu a fair contest. This is the order from Washing- and the Governor of tbe great State of Ohio is reduced down to the pitiful proportions of a scalawag and carpet-bag Governor in Florida and in obeying orders from the head-center. He tramples un- der foot the law of his own State to kneel to a political command from the Radical committees and associations at the Capital. In order to secure a vote for the fifteenth amendment in the State of Governor Hayes disobeyed the law by ordering a special elec- tion in the Champaign for State when no vacancy ex- isted under the law.

Home Radical Yiew of the Possibilities of the Future. A snowstorm iu the United States at the end of thfe year- iS6G extended over a district of miles in length and 300 miles in the average depth of snow being one foot. The weight was estimated at five tons to the' o'f tons to the square or at a grand total of tons of which is ten times the welgh't o'f all the' wheat grown iu the United States sitice' the discovery of an-1 this vast weight of snowfall in one storm from one great and within a peTJo'd of only four days. the Ohio State Jan. 5.J THURMAN AS A PPESIDENTIAL cannot be to many ofolir readers unknown that the name of a distinguished cttizeil o'f our city has been spoken of in In- fluential with more of ess frequency of in connec- lon. with the office of President of the United States. At this early and at the time when pop- ular sentiment in the Democratic is just begining to take shape md and to indicate pre- erences for this or that public man as a Presidential it may jroye of general interest to' give impression to the opinions enter- Senator Thurmun by his or rather by those of lis neighbors who are now and ever have been his political op- ponents. It is perhaps entirely superfluous to say that being diametrically opposed to Judge rhllrmah in we cannot conceive of any political changes of Combination of circumstances pos- sible in which it would not remain our duty to oppose his elevation to Chief Magistracy of the country. Judge Thurman has not a drop of Republican blood in his veins. Ho is a Deiiiocrat of the Democrats. He out-Herods-Herod and out-Timofts- Timon in denouncing and bewail- ing the degeneracy of the times that continues the Republican party in power. He is a sort of political Thersites whose terrible tongue lashings all must feel the smart of who have not been educated in the same political school. He thinks the times are always ottt of joint when the Democrats are out 01 power. He believes in the Dem ocratic party as it was and as it is We presume he never had an un- believing doubt that that party could have preserved the Republic from all the sufferings and sacrifices of the late and has now no misgivings that its leaders are no' the salvation Of the land and the salt of the earth. If elected Presi dent he would put none but Dem ocrats on guard or in office and would maintain as sacred and in violate what are called tho party's time-honored principles and long cherished traditions. But political considerations candor compels us to con- cede to Senator Thurman as a pos sible Presidential a vpry high ovcUr of qualifications. No citisen in this community sustains a higher character for personal in- tegrity. In all his business re- lations he is upright and generously just. In his social relations he is exceedingly and is in Character and manners an accomplished gentlemari. In his profession he reached the highest rank eOtite years before entering the United States Senate. Judge Tburman is a self-taught and self- made man. He enjoyed node of those to success which1 or a liberal education af- fords. A year of two in a small academy wag the extent of his school room instruction. But the court room and the world have been to him a and he has been through life a perpetual and nn indefatigable student. With labor has conquered all for industry has supplied the learning which a defectite ed ucation left and over- came all the obstacles to success in the most difficult of the professions. Thurman has studied men as well as and is ah judge of character and of human This quality in one holding the Presidential office is of incalculable value and importance. In point of experience in public life Thurman has had a trainihg in- ferior to hone of the Democratic Presidential aspirants. He was for two years in the Lower House of Congress during the exciting peri- od of the Mexican War. In 1852 he was Judge of. the Supreme Court of served four and was for one year Chief Justice. Add to six years' service in the United States and he will have had greater Advantages in the way of experience in public office than three-fourths of those who in later years have been candi- dates for the Presidency. While on the Supreme Judge Thur- man took the highest rank among the for sound judgment and ability. He was not only learned in the but y hat is of infinite importance to a judicial learned in things outside of the law. Ete served the State in this capacity not only with credit and but with distinction. The high position which Senator Thurman has taken in the Senate is well understood. That he poases- es abilities superior to riny Demo- cratic member of the and is at the usual rates. .-yggSf-' Wilf ff------------- both ibwotable to fn sible that U is not as a comprcrjaan may clricks and Horn between may.
