Mamv Citizens and Sou>ibbs. We are authorized to say that the name of Samuel Braden, Jr., of Noble township, (present incumbent) will be presented to the republican county nominating convention, August 21, as a candidate for re-nomination to the office of sheriff of Noble county, subect to the decision of that convention.

Harrison's busted bank at Indianapolis shows that it was not what it had been represented to be. Mr. Harrison, however, is the virtuous and honest patriot who oould not support James G. Blaine because he was such a bad, bad man. Too ,bad, Purcell, a leading democrat of the state of New York, declares Cleveland to be a moral leper, and in view of this George William Curtis says that *'the paramount issue of the presidential election of this year is moral rather than politicalGeorge Will iam will support Purcell's "moral leper." The Celtic-Americans in the city ^ of Baltimore are decided in their prefwence for Blaine and Logan as against Cleveland and Hendricks. An organization to co-operate with the republicans is being effected, which, it is thought will bring Maryland iato the nmks as a Blaine and Logan state. The Harrisburg Patriot says when the nomination of Cleveland and Hendricks was annocuieed«^ Washington the goddess of libec^ igpthe dome of the capitol became refidgent for the first time ainoe Wll.-^South Bend Times. Knowing the facts of the terrible wrongs poor Miss Maria Halpin, of Buffalo, suffered by placing her honor in the keeping of this iQan Cleveland, it is no wonder that the Goddess of Liberty blushed for shame when his nomination was announced.

Smith, alternata The unit rule, and the worst elements of the "machine" in politics, were brought to bear in the nomination of Stephen Gboveb Cleveland for the presidency by the democratic national convention last week. In the republican convention that placed James G. Bl^ne in nomination, nothing of the kind appeared, but his selection was due to the fact that the. masses so willed it, and their voice was not suppressed by the application of gag rules as was done in the democratic convention. On this subject the Indianapolis News (Independent) says that "it is notorious that Mr. Blaine was the choice of the body of his puty, the masses, the rank and file, the people who do nothing but vote, who hold no office and do not expect to. It is also notorious that all of "the machine," the office-holders, were against Blaise. It is further notorious that his nomination came about from the fact that the tyran-meal and undemocratic "unit" rule being broken, the plain people, the masses of the party were able to send delegates who represented them, instead of representing the trickery of the machine which had hitherto stifled their voice and vota All this is conceded. To say then that in the choice of Blaikx ''the corrupt and dangerous element^' of the republican party have triumphed, is to say, logically, that the great mace of the republican party, not the office holders and machine, but tiie plain peo> pie, the heart and soul of the republican party, are "cormpt aQd4anger-ous.'' We do not betieve thia; we do not bdUeve that our contemporaiy helices thia" No one in the republican party attempts a denial of the fact that there are a few so-called independents in the eastern states, or rather in the cities of New York and Boston, who are doing their utmost to defeat the republican presidential ticket this year. The movement is confined chiefly to such men as George William Curtis, of Harper's Weekly, and a few of his college-bred associates, but has no respectable following among the masses—the bone and sinew of the republican party. We know of no man in Noble county— certainly none in Albion—who has ever been classed as a republican within the last decade, who is in sympathy with this movement, or who will not vote the republican ticket this year, and we do not believe there are any such to be found. If there is a follower of Mr. Curtis here, or among the readers of The New Era, we wish to call his attention to a few inconsistencies in that gentleman's professiona 1. He bitterly opposed the "unit rule," and threatened to bolt the party unless it were abrogated. Republicans, generally, were unfavorable to the operations of this "rule," and it was cast aside as unrepublican. Now Mr. CuBTis hugs to his bosom a party that clings tenaciously to the principle he professed to abhor in the republican party, and sees nothing but parity and greatness in Mr. Cleveland', who owes the position he has to day in the party to a strict enforcement of the fide Mr. Curtis professed to loathe alid abhor. 2. Mr. Curtis has professed to be a champion of civil service reform, and his alienation from the republican party he claimed was partly due to the fact that that party did not go far enough in its enforcement of that principle. To show the utter hoUowness of all these professions of love for civil service reform on the part of that gentleman, we have only to point to the effort he is making to elect the democratic presidential ticket, when Mr. Hendricks, the vice-presidential candidate, declares that "there are 120,-000 federal office holders in the United States, and from Portland to Los Angeles there is not a democrat holding a prominent position. It will be absolutely necessary "^for the democratic president to change, at the least calculation, 50,000 of these." No regard to be paid to civil service reform principles here, but if Cleveland goes in there is to be a general turning out of 120,000 federal office holders in the country and filling their places with hungry democrats; and Mr. Cubtis can survey the field of operations thus mapped out by the tail of the ticket and heartily endorse it Shame on such reform and on such a reformer say we. T. B. Thubbeb, of York, says the Commercial Advertiser, gives, as an utterance of Gen. Butleb, "if the people want to be ruled by the wealthy criminal classes, and see the government prostituted to the greed of monopolists, they would elect Cleveland." He will be weighed in the balance, of justice to workingmen, and will be found wanting. In 1876, Geobge William Cubtis said that "no man who is familiar with public affairs and men would claim that Mr. Hendbkcks is in any sense whatever a representative of the loyal and sincere patriotism of the country, of a sound and wise financial «ystem, or of improvement in the civil servica" Yet Mr. Cubtis will attempt to place this man in the second highest office in the gift of the American people! —Advocates of prohibition need have no feu» of *'Pbiokly Ash Brr-TBBs" as it is a medfcine, and by reason of its ciUhartic properties cannot be used as a beveraga It is mannfactiired from the purest ma terials, and aolp directty on the lirw, kidneys, i^maoh and bowels.

Hendbicks, in his demo-gogical speech at Indianapolis, cited his hearers to a defalcation or stealing under the present administration, of $60,000, and upon this based his plea that the republican party should be turned out and the d^ocratic party let in. Below is a comparison of the losses under republican and democratic rule, and after reading the same we ask the candid voter to say which party should be retained in power. Hendricks knew that the figures woiild not bear him out in his statements, or the inference which he meant to have his hearers draw from his discourse, but had not the manliness to say so. Here are the figures: Jackson's administration is heldup as the greatest and purest of the Democratic list, but the record shows that during his eight years the government received and disbursed $500,081,749, on which the total loss by defalcations was $3,761,111, being 7.52 per cent During Van Bur-en's four years the receipts and dis-bursments were $285,337,949, and the loss by defalcations $3,342,792, or 11.71 per cent Under Polk the percentage of loss was 4.08, under Pierce 3.56, under Buchanan 3.81. We come now to Republican administration, which had to bear the expense of a great war and the risk and loss and fraud incident to the calling of a large number of new and untried men into the public service. Under Lincoln the receipts and disburs-mentswere $9,386,637,144, and the losses $7,200,984, being 0.76 per cent Under Johnson, when $8,014,-908,984, were received and disbursed, the loss was $4,619,599, or 0.57 per cent Under the eight years of Grant the receipts and disbursments were $10,842,922,583, or twenty times as much as under Jackson, and the losses were $2,622,478, or about two thirds as much as under Jackson, and 0.24 per cent of the whole. Under Hayes, the receipts and disbursements $3,353,629,855, being equal to the total of all the Democratic administrations from Jackson to Buchanan inclusive, and the entire loss was $2,676, being 8,1000 of a mill per cent. This was one dollar for every $1,250 lost under VanBuben, whose administration handled exactly one-twelfth as much money as that of Hayes. A general comparison between Democratic and Republican administrations will show that this remarkable difference between the parties has prevailed from the beginning of the government During the 72 years of its existence prior to Mr. Lincoln's inauguration, of which the Democrats held practical control for sixty years, the total receipts and disbursements were $717,841,157, on which the losses from defalcations wore $24,-431,829, being 5.17 per cent Then came the first Republican administration and the great Democratic Rebellion. From July 1, 1861 to June 30, 1869, the government received and disbursed $31,598,158.167, being seven times as much as during the 72 years preceeding, and the total losess were $14,445, 739, being 0.46 per cent of the whole, and $10,000,000 less than the aggregate for the other period. In other words, the proportion of stealing to receipts has been as $11 Democratic to $1 Republican. Comparing Jackson with Grant the proportion was $31 to $1, and putting Vam Buren and Hayes side by side, the proportion is $14,637.50 to $1. Among the incidents which may be mentioned as accounting for some of these remarkable contrasts were the stealing of $1,256,000 by Swabt-out and $73,000 by Price, the former as Collector and the latter as United States District Attorney for the State of New York, the stealing of $886,000 by sixty odd receivers of public lands, and of $50,000 by the Chief Engineer of the United States Army, all under Jackson's administration. —There is no one article in the line of medicines that gives so large a return for the money as a good porous strengthening plaster, such as Carter's Smart Weed and Belladonna Backache Plasters. 80ml Hoh. gbxobob L.
