The suit of Isaac and Chris Walker against the county tried before special judge John d. Alexander on last tuesday is of More than Ordinary interest to the people of Monroe country. The suit was brought on a five Hundred Dollar Bond and was a test Case for the future action of the Board of county commissioner. The attorneys for the plaintiffs argued that while the Bond was a Hight Pike Bond the county is liable for its payment that the county is an endorser and is therefore liable in Case the owners of the property against whom assessments were made did not pay the required amount. The attorneys for the county argued that the persons whose lands were within two Miles of the Pike were liable and not the county and that if the amount of Pike fund is not sufficient the Legal remedy is to make an additional assessment against said land owners. In his decision the court held that the owners of property within two Miles of the Pike Are responsible and not the county. The Case will be appealed at once by the a i Tift r. If the decision of the trial court is sustained the a Cunt Obj missioner will order an add ional ame Simont. The Starke county Democrat hits the Nail on the head when it says that depressing times like the present test the political integrity and staying qualities of democrats. On All sides calamity howling republicans Are openly rejoicing because an unfortunate business depression brought on by a Quarter of a Century of Republican legislation in favor of the Rich and against the poor and for which the present administration and the democratic party Are no More responsible than they were for the flood gives them an apparent advantage. Under such discourage intents the Man who is a Democrat for policy or personal gain rather than from conviction May falter but on the Man who is a Democrat because of an intelligent and firm belief in the correctness of the principles advocated by Jeffe flon and Jackson the effect of such influences is decidedly diff Crent. Unjust charges against his party by its enemies Only serve to strengthen his Faith in its principles and make him cling More closely to it. Democrats should Tell their Republican adversaries the truth instead of submitting to false accusations. Tell them present hardships Are the legitimate fruit of the m Kin Ley Law and other unwise Republican legislation and advise them to sing their songs of prospective i tory to slow music so they will be in training to sing the funeral Dirge at the Bose Juies of their dead Hopes this fall.

Congressman Harter of Ohio in declining an invitation to address a meeting of dissatisfied Labouring men in Washington on the subject Quot what if anything can Congress do to give work to the unemployed to increase the prices of products and to restore to our people Confidence and Prosperity Quot wrote As tellows John d. Girl Esq. Dear sir a a i am not certain i can by at the meeting i wish to suggest an effective remedy for hard times which is also a very simple one. Confine the world of Congress to the limits of the Constitution. Stop levying taxes to pro vide pro hts under the name of Protection for a portion of our people at the expense of the balance. Publish far and wide that it it not the business of the United states to raise prices provide work regulate wages or in any Way interfere in the private business or personal affairs of the people. Declare that state Banks and All other state and local affairs like roads for instance shall remain exclusively with the state and local governments. Prove to All the world that we intend to keep every Dollar of the circulating Money issued or coined by the United states at the Fine Gold value of too cent. Put our civil Are vice on a Businesslike foundation and kick out tool Lumen and bunco legislators and Prosperity will his a return without investing in any quack nostrums and without putting on liver pads or a Little everyday common sense Industry Economy and hopefulness will hasten the return of Good times. But avoid quack remedies quack congressmen and Cranks and senators and when such worthies Tell us we must put up. The Price of Silver wheat Grindstone tulips or Toad stools to the figures they come and de in the Days of Adam of George Washington or even in 1873 i say when such ideas Are advanced put Cotton in your ears and keep on at your calling. The troubles we Are having Are the outgrowth of Simon pure paternalism and when these few changes arc made in our present methods and we thus return to americanism in its purity hit is to personal individual self Reliance our troubles will fade away As the Mist lies before the rising Sun. If however we go on in the mad Chase after Prosperity under the Leader a Lii it of the coxes Mckinley stewarts peelers Blands Hatchet a., we will find harder times and greater suffering ahead of us and you say or i May believe that All of the men named Are very Good Fellows first class fathers husbands and neighbors quite Well meaning and Hig Lily Coninie Dabic men in every sense and i Only use their Nanier to identify the various crazes wild ideas vagaries and Cranky notion they have urged and a it voc Nee but they must injure All they Lead and will bankrupt any nation men with level Heads and a fair share of Good common everyday sense Are at a discount these Timus Kvut if tiie country follows Cranks much Lon Jjck the result will be so disastrous As to create finally a very Active demand and bring about a most urgent Call for those who during All these times have kept it Faith and constantly warned those v. Or cared to listen of the judgment to come. Frown Down a Ery charlatan politician every Long haired wild eyed social philosopher whether he be a governor or a grave Digger a Silver nine owner or a tramp and advise those who arc willing to listen to you to work save and keep sober. Tell them of depend upon the sweat of their faces and the labors of their hands and not to put their Trust in politicians or depend upon the Bounty of Federal government or the soup Kitchen Charity of the municipality. Our country with All its magnificent resources is still Here and our people have not lost their skill and we can be As prosperous and Happy As Ever if we demand equal Laws and a sound currency from the government and then work out our own salvation.
