Blaine by charging the latter with being connected with the Kennebec (Me.) Journal when that paper was an organ of the Know-Nothing party of the pine tree state, Isaac P. Gray, democratic candidate for Governor of Indiana, entered the canvass in this state, and unblushing-Ij" chained that Mr. Blaine had been a member of that order. The falsity of this charge, Mr. Blaine has made dear by showing that he was not con nected with the Journal at that tima Now, however, it has been established by the swam statement of some at the best citizens of New Madison, O., that Mr. Gray, himself, was the head-center of a lodge of know-nothings at that place, and as such took a solemn oath never to support for any office in this countr}', a foreign-born citizen, or a Rcftnan Catholic. The man who thus solemnly vowed, is now before the people begging for the votes of German and Irish-American voters, and trying to curry favor with the Catholics of Indiana. As to his connection with the order, here is the sworn statemont of a prominent citizen of New Madison, Ohio, which might be supplemented by a number of others. Mr. Bacon's affidavit is as follows: State of Ohio, Darke County, ss.: Before me, A. L. Northrop, a notary public in and for the county aforesaid, personally appeared Goo. Baoon, who being duly sworn, deposes and says that he is fifty-seven years of age, resides in New Madison, in the County and State aforesaid; resided here in 1854, 1855 and 1856; was well acquainted with Isaac P. Gray, democratic candidate for Governor of the State of Indiana; was initiated into the order of know-nothings at Green-yille, in 1854, with and at the same time as Isaac P. Gray; that said Gray was one of the charter members of the know-nothing lodge of Now Madison, and chie^of it during its existence here, voting for th^ ^ow-noth-ing state, county and presidential tickets daring those years, as was then nnderst»^ George Bacox. Sworn to afid subscribed to, this 18tix day of September, A. D., 1884. A. L. Noethbop, Notary Public, Darke Co., Ohio. The oath which he took, voluntarily, when he became a member, is as follows: "You, of your own free will and accord, in the presence of Almighty God and these witnesses, your right hand resting on the Holy Bible and cross, and your left hand toward heaven in token of your sincerity, do solemnly promise and swear that you will not make known to any person or pOTSons any of the signs, secrets, mysteries or objects of ^s organization, iinless it be to those whom, after doe examinalaoa or lawful information, ycm shall find to be members of this Qi^nization in good standing; that is now in full blast with an entire stock of CENt Hats S' & Caps," =^which comprises^ CLOTHING.

On the 21st instant I cansed to be published in the Daily Gazette of this city, the following open letter to Judge Robert Lowry, the Democratic candidate for congi-ess in this Twelfth district: open letter to the hon. bobebt lowby. Fort Wayne, Oct 21, 1882. Hon. Robert Lowry. Sir—You are the Democratic candidate for congress for this Twelfth congressional district. Permit me to ask you as such candidate, expecting the votes of the Democrats, fear questions, to which for my own government and perhaps that of others, I respectfully request a reply through the press at your earliest convenience: 1st. Do you believe that every duty on imports is incorporated with the price of the commodity, and ultimately paid by the consumer, with a profit on the duty itself as a compensation to the merchant for the advance of his money ? 2nd. Are not these duties tax^s which increase to the consumer the price of everything imported, subject to the duty, aad whicli also increase the price of like commodities to the same extent, if produced or manufactured at home ? 3rd. Do you believe it is right for congress to make a tariH—or a tax— except for "revenue only 4th. Would you in a caucus or otherwise vote for speaker of the house of representatives for a "protective tariff" advocate, such as the Hon. SamuelJ. Randall, for iii3tance? Yours &C., A. P. Edoerton. My purpose, plainly enough shown, was to get Judge Lowry's opinion upon the tariff question before the public, and in such form as to be acceptable to all sound Democrats who believe in a tariff for 'Revenue only." I expected Judge Lowry to answer the first and second questions "Yes," WELKER. jerton. Wayne, Ind., Oct 27, 1884. AHORNEY-AT-UW and NOTARY PUBLIC, Albion, Indiana.
