From daily Republican express aug. 22. Senator Calvin s. Briceus state convention at Springfield was concluded wednesday the ticket presented above being the result of the meeting. The senator had absolute control and the wheels of his ice Wagon crowded the free Silvei ites Down through the cracks of the floor of the convention Hall. The anti Brice delegation from Cuya hoga county was seated. It was the regular delegation and As Brice did not need it to carry out his plans he very generously allowed his Cleveland enemies to remain on the floor of the convention. Brice not Only acted As temporary chairman of the convention but made the organization permanent and run things at his own Sweet will. He stood upon and walked All Over the free Silver men and did not leave a grease spot of the kickers. Although a resident of new York and a Wall Street magnate of great importance Brice was received with cheers by the Ohio democrats and Given the warmest place in their hearts. He of course made the key note speech of the Campaign and consequently the democracy of Ohio will be called upon to fight upon the floes marked out by Wall Street. This will be a bitter dose for old line democrats but there will be no escape for them unless they repudiate the whole ticket which thousands of them will do. The platform endorses Cleveland and Brice for repealing the Mckinley Bill although the administration has been forced to borrow a Hundred million dollars to sustain the credit of the county since it was repealed and despite the further fact that senator Brice made a Fortune out of sugar by having it placed on the free list. It a Points with Pride to the repeal of the Sherman Law when every intelligent Reader in America knows that even after Congress had met in special session president Cleveland had to Appeal to the patriotism of the Republican members to help him out Ash sown party though possessing an overwhelming majority would not touch the Law. The financial Plank adopted is As follows we reaffirm the following portion of the seventh Plank of the platform of the last annual democratic convention a we hold to the use of both Gold and Silver As the Standard Money of the country and to Coin of both Gold and Silver without discrimination against either Metal or charge for mintage but the Dollar unit of coinage of both metals must be of equal intrinsic or exchangeable value or be adjusted by International agreement or by such safeguards of legislation As shall insure the maintenance of the parity of the two metals and the equal Power of every Dollar at All times in the payment of debts and we demand that the paper currency shall be kept at Par with and redeemable in such Coin.

Dan Waugh member of Congress from the ninth District Indiana says after receiving the benefits i have from the use of Lyons 8even wonders i take pleasure in saying a few words in its favor. For years i suffered with indigestion and stomach trouble. I used various remedies but found nothing that gave me Relief until i used Lyons seven wonders which seemed to impart life and vigor to the entire system. I therefore give it my unqualified Praise. Yours Etc., Dan Waugh Tipton ind. Guarantee this remedy to cure v a or Money refunded. For Sale by a g. Woodward. Policy As especially necessary for the Protection of Farmers and Labouring classes the first and most defenceless victims of unstable Money and flu Tating this is practically the same Plank that was adopted in 1892 by Ohio democrats and senator Brice says it Means a Gold Standard. Hence Ohio democracy has been hitched to the car wheel of the a stuffed Prophet on that Issue and the Silver men must take the Gold cure whether they like it or not or desert the Ohio caravan. The last legislature is condemned and a great cry is made about the increase of local indebtedness. Practically there is Only one Plank in the platform and that is the single Gold Standard which Brice forced the bourbons to Swallow. Defiance county was with Brice of course. The party in the county denounced him in convention last fall but it was at his feet in the Springfield convention. The county was not Given a place on any of the committees although it had As delegates some of the Ablest politicians in the fifth District. Webster of the news and Democrat was named As one of the messengers of the Secretary. The place was Given him possibly to irritate a. F. Schrack of the democratic record who is a stiff anti Brice Man and who though in Springfield was Only allowed to Peep at the circus through the cracks of the Fence. The next move on the checker Board will be the re affirmation of the state platform by the democracy of Defiance county. Then a Brice Man will be nominated for representative and the German Herold and other dissenters will put on the Collar of the Wall Street magnate Brice and do their Best to help return him to the Senate although he is a resident of new York. They May kick and All that sort of thing but Calvin has a Sharp pointed stick and a barrel of Golden grease and those who will not allow themselves to be lubricated will be prodded into line. The nomination of Campbell was probably the Best that could have been made. He is a fair campaigner and will be backed by Briceus barrel in the coming Campaign but he will not be in it. Asa Bushel will be elected governor and the next legislature will Send j. B. Foraker to the United states Senate. Wall Street controlled the Springfield convention in All its parts. The democrats in Ohio have been compelled to Swallow some awful us bitter doses but this last Pill will prove More than Tho better element of the party can stand. They will rebel against the dictation of the Money Power and will not allow themselves to be used in carrying out the schemes of the Wall Street robbers. This last democratic convention in Ohio was enough to make Jefferson and Jackson turn Over in their Graves and Force the ghost of old Durbin Ward to kick the Monument Over his Tomb sky High.

The first alarm since the new system was put in Force was turned in from Box no. 23, second Ward thursday last. The department made a Quick run and found that a burning Ash barrel was the occasion of the alarm. The new system works like a Charm. It has been suggested that a Hole be Cut in the second floor at the Central station and that the quarters be opened for eight or ten firemen. This would give a fair working Force on Short notice. As the fire boxes Are designed to give Quick notice to Ltd the firemen who do the work rather than to alarm the whole City it will be understood that an addition to the Force now quartered at the Central station would make the department much More efficient or at least place it in a position where it could respond to an alarm much sooner than it has Ever done before. There Are three men at the Central station now and while the first tap of the Gong will Call them out they would necessarily have to wait on some occasions for More help whereas if they had More men at the Central station Thev would not have to Walt at All.

Leonidas h. Southard speaker pro tem. Of House of representatives. Andrew l. Harris president of the Senate. Passed May 21,1891. North Defiance. Gossip about the High railway company bossing things. There is a great Deal of talk about the High Bridges in North Defiance the recent a a improvements now being made Over there have stirred up the gossips and the people Are wagging their tongues pro and con while the railway company sits Back and laughs in its sleeve at How it is bossing the Ward. It will be remembered that Joseph Ralston and Jim Crandall while members of the City Council caused an ordinance to be passed providing for Grade Crossings and the removal entirely of the High Bridges. That ordinance is the Law of the City today. Some two years ago the Railroad company offered the City $2100 if the City would agree to recede from its demand for Grade Crossings and agre1 to a single sixty foot Bridge to be located Midway Between the two pres ent Bridges. Of course a great Many people believe that the talk about the single Bridges the 60 foot Bridges is simply a smooth oily trick on the part of the railway company and its agents to raise a talk. They know full Well that the people would raise a storm on that Point and would be so heartily opposed to it that they would be in a proper Frame of mind to agree on the retaining of the present High Bridges or perhaps new Iron ones. Last Winter a Law was passed by the legislature making it compulsory to build All Bridges Over railway tracks 21 feet High in the Clear above the rails. Was this another Pari of the scheme ? under this Law it would not be possible to do much lower log if new Bridges Are put in an i it also provides that if the railway a oui an wishes to raise ifs tracks it eau also raise the Bridge. It is now rumoured that it is the intention of the City authorities to favor the single Bridge As soon As the in Junction suit instituted by the Railroad Aera inst the City is determined to the supreme court at Washington. A further part of the scheme that the Kenneth Bazemore had the Good Fortune to receive a Small bottle of chamberlains Colic Cholee and diarrhoea remedy when three members of his family were sick with dysentery.
