I or our democratic contemporary had not Given its cordial Aud unqualified endorsement to the Morinan Crice Tariff Law there would be a show of consistency in its declaration that it agrees with harpers weekly Iii saying that the democratic Patty has failed to carry out a pledge in regard to Tariff Reform. Blowing hot and cold in the same breath is dangerous work. Toe defeat of Breckinridge for the democratic congressional nomination in the Ashland Kentucky District on saturday by Hon. W. C. Owens was a rebuke Wirich will be approved in every Section of the country. Col. Breckinridge a attempt to defy Public opinion has met with deserved defeat and should satisfy him and his friends that a a Silver Tongue is not As potent in its eloquence As the protest of an outraged Public conscience. Senator Brice subdued and forced into line All the elements of opposition to him in the democratic state convention held at Columbus yesterday. He Early mastered the situation by gobbling a majority on All of the important committees. There will be no Resolution denouncing or. Brice As a a traitor to democratic the Cleveland cuckoos were appeased by the endorsement of the administration of their chief As a faithful efficient and the fact is senator Brice has More friends among Ohio democrats than president Cleveland.

Worm he he considered a Wise or even provident Husbandman who owning a highly cultivated and productive farm would permit it to stand Idle and grow up in weeds while he devoted his energies to the Multi Vatidis of an equal number of impoverished acres As a tenant if such a course upon the part of a Husbandman would be unwise and improvident. Would it not be equally As ill considered for a people situated As our own to permit their resources to remain undeveloped Aud their labor Togo unemployed Why with resources More than ample to Supply every necessity of our population should we open our markets without compensation to tile ruinous Competition of the cheaper capital and lower waged labor of the countries of Europe can the United states adopt such a policy without permanent injury to the highest interests and largest Prosperity of our own people would it not in fact to a repetition of the a Wisdom of the Husbandman who owning boundless Fertile acres should allow them to grow up Iii Tares while he expended his Best energies in efforts to gather a Golden Harvest from rented Fields of impoverished clan the opening of the Athens county Campaign. Forager Ana Grosvenor at Albany and governor Mckinley at Nelsonville. The Athens county state and Cong res signal Campaign will be opened on Bat i urday september 29th in the afternoon with two grand meetings. The meeting at Albany will be addressed by sex gov ids death was a few Mouths past forty eight years of age. From Early manhood or. Smith has been engaged in Doaton of cd Arles d. Salta. The Community was shocked by the announcement of the death of or. Charles d. Smith which occurred on wednesday evening of last week following an i hues of some two weeks with j typhoid fever. Or. Smith was a native of Plymouth Washington county Aud at the time of error Foraker and Gen. Charles ii. Grosvenor Aud the present indications Are that the meeting will be one of the largest in numbers Ever assembled in mercantile pursuits in which he was successful. For Many years he kept a dry goods Metore at Cutler Washington Athens county As it is intended to a county. For seventeen years he has conducted a store at Frost this county. Some five years ago he purchased the there will he further Tariff agitation. The question will not Down. Republican do not accept the Gor Man Brice Law As a finality. Tile Only Tariff legislation that will satisfy the people and bring Prosperity to the country is such a Law As shall be based on Protection to american industries Aud american labor. There eau be no cessation of a a hostilities until the Tariff is made to conform to Protection lines including the incorporation o the Blaine demand Tor a reciprocal Market Between the United states Aud Hue to foreign governments As do not place an embargo on our a Ork beef wheat Corn Aud flour. The Tariff Bill which is drawn so As to preserve the borne Market to those who carry on our industries Aud which will give constant employment at Good wages to our own workingmen is the Only measure Itiat will meet the approval of Lite Republican party and be accepted by a majority of the people of the United states As a satisfactory settlement of tills vexed question. A Tariff Law which will afford adequate Protection by encouraging our own industries and preserving our own Market to our own employers Aud employees is Tho measure of lie Republican demand in the matter of Tariff legislation and agitation of the qui Stion will continue until such a Law is placed upon the statute books. Protection is the very essence of enlightened selfishness and As the stability Aud permanency of our form of government depends in no Small degree upon a Well fed Well clothed and Well housed intelligent and self respecting population conditions that eau Only prevail under Protection it is difficult to imagine Why any portion of our people should favor a policy the direct tendency of which is to Lessen the wages of labor and consequently the comforts of the Home. Wages that barely permit men to exist that stifle ambition and dismiss Hope Are such that american workingmen will not accept without serious protest. The elevated and prosperous condition of labor in this country is the direct result of the Republican policy of Protection and such conditions it will be found Imposable to maintain under a Tariff system which encourages the importation of articles which can be made from our own material and by die labor of our own artisans. Then in the Light of the experience of the last thirty years a there not the gravest danger to the Prosperity and Wal being of ail classes of our people Iii us list i to to Rig a democratic for a Republican Tariff no Republican should withdraw from Tho Republican party because of the attitude of certain of its leaders on the Silver question. A Large number of leading republicans As Well As the great mass of Republican voters Are Iii favor of Silver As Standard Money and the place to make a tight for tile restoration of Silver As full Legal tender is within the Republican party organization. The Republican masses Are bimetal lists Aud demand the fullest use of both Gold and Silver on an Equality. Of the poultry is to become prosperous again with employment Universal at Good wages the re monetization of Silver not less than the re enactment of a protective Tariff will be found essential in bringing about such conditions. No Man is a bimetal list who wants Silver to be coined and paper to be issued redeemable in Gold Only or its purchasing Power measured in Gold Only. The precious metals should be treated alike Aslo mintage and the result would be that Wall Street could no longer regulate at will the volume of circulation and Force new issues of interest bearing Bonds to maintain a Gold Reserve Aud at the same time the Gold Standard. The it est most enlightened As Welt As the most equitable and practicable Way to Nian Tain parity is to make both Gold and Silver absolute or full Legal tender Money. That this can be safely done it need Only be stated that at no period in history has the production of either Silver or Gold alone been enough to keep up the world s necessary Stock of Money. Together they form an ample and stable basis Aud As All republicans ate in favor of a Dollar Worth too cents we repeal that the place to make the tight for the Equality of Silver is within the organization of Tho Republican party. It is not necessary to join either the democracy or the populists to restore Sliver As absolute Money. When it is done it will be done by a Republican Congress. Gen. Grosvenor who spent a week in the Maine Campaign making five speeches in that state went to Indi a Alast week to participate in the Republican Campaign making ids first speech at Crawfordsville on saturday afternoon. Ile also spoke at several other Points Iii Tho Hoosier slate his meetings All being Large Aud enthusiastic. Gen. Grosvenor will open his Campaign in this county at Albany on saturday afternoon sept. 29th, at which meeting sex governor Foraker will be present to deliver in address. A the new town Hall at Chauncey will be dedicated saturday september 29th. Commodare the people of a Large portion of Athens Meigs and Vinton counties. The character of the speakers both being republicans of National reputation is of itself an Assurance that the meeting will be one of the most exciting daring the Campaign. Neither of the speakers needs an introduction to an audience anywhere in Ohio and than governor Foraker certainly there is no Abler or More popular speaker in the country. No Republican within reach of the meeting should remain away and it is also to be hoped that our democratic friends will not neglect to come out and hear an honest and fearless discussion of the questions which affect the material Prosperity of the Farmers and All other classes of oar citizenship. The meeting at Nelsonville will be addressed by governor Mckinley Ohio Sable and eloquent chief magistrate. Like Foraker and Grosvenor he needs no introduction. He is known from one end of the Union to the other. As a Public speaker be has few equals. Upon economic questions he ranks with the Foremost statesmen of the world. The people of Nelsonville and the people of Albany in connection with the Republican executive committee Are making ample arrangements for the Comfort and accommodation of the Large audiences which Are expected to be present and there is Little room to doubt that both meetings will be Large and representative in character.
