To unto Republican vol. Xxxi Defiance Defiance county Ohio Friday september 13, 1889 $100,000 in mortgages on Tho farm lands. When the democrats come to get out their Campaign tracts they Woald not make a statement of these facts but simply say the farm lands of Defiance county Are covered by mortgages to the amount of $70,100,000 and that Hatt is what Protection is doing for the Farmers. South Tiffin Complete and practical How the Farmers of this county Are lib eled by unscrupulous demo cratic politicians. Such s Arementa of course Arn merely intended to mislead the Farmers and cause them to accept the doctrine of free Trade. The markets of the world lure open to Tho products of our Farmers. There no barriers raised against Tho Advent of our Corn and wheat into the markets of Europe. Every Farmer Realises what a Boon they have in Tho Market that has been created by the up building of our industries. Protection to labor has c mod our industries to grow and multiply and hence have Given the Numier this Market. The removal of that Protection would bring our workingmen Down to the same Lead with the pauper labor of the old Oon try destroy our industries destroy the Farmers Home Market and give him nothing in to turn. Be care a1 and done to spend your Money till you see Tho wonderful bargains we Are offering. Ii you do you will Only regret it our business is growing larger Day by Day. We give you the biggest returns for your Money and Are thankful to you for All purchases no matter How Small. The Farmers of this Oon try arc among Tho most industrious and substantial class of citizens we have yet there 1b scarcely a d la that they Uro not wantonly and maliciously slandered by the democratic press of this state. In the a it or against Protection the democrats Advance the idea that farm lands Are practically buried under mortgages. This is not Only an insult to an intelligent people but it la a malicious lie. Colby amp Scott s prior to the War there were Many counties where there was scarcely one tract of land that was not covered with mortgages but that was during democratic times when the exponents of free Trade Beld the reins of government and the Farmers and workingmen of the North were brought into direct Competition with the slave labor of the South. The Farmers will remember that those were pretty Tough times. The festive wild cat Bank flourished like a Green Bay tree in those Days. The Farmer who took his cattle Over the mountains to the Eastern markets never knew just what was going to happen. He would get his Money and the chances were that before he could get Back to Ohio the Bank that had issued it had the Farmers and business men will also Remer Riber things finally came to such a pass that it was absolutely unsafe for a Man to have any paper Money in his Possession at All thousands of Farmers were ruined by the failure of these wild cat hunks and it was Little wonder that the country was covered with mortgages. The free trader says Quot suppose they can make Good cheaper in England than they can Here suppose they do close up our shops. If it is True that they c in make goods for us cheaper than we eau make them ourselves will it not be latter for us that we allow them to do so a yes or. Free Trade but what will you do with our working men a Why let them go to raising sheep a yes but free Trade kills that Industry. A Well let them go to farming. England will take our Corn and we will take her goods. A such a thing i think will never be but that is just what free Trade Means. With our shops and factories closed up England would fix her own Price for or Corn and wheat and we would be compelled to pay just what she demanded for her goods. And then what an army of Farmers we would Baya Headquarters for bargains at during the same period Many of the Labouring men in the hanging Rock Iron Region worked for a year at a time without receiving a cent of Money and were Only too glad to draw their wages out in Corn meal and sow belly. Indeed there Are Many men la that Region who worked until they were of age before they had Tho pleas. Tire of receiving any Money for labor. The condition of the Farmers was not one Whit better. They had a few hogs running wild in the Woods a half a dozen rough coarse Wool sheep one or two half starved ponies. They carded spun and wove their own Wool raised a Little Patch of Corn and tobacco and managed to eke out a rather miserable existence. Now that was during the reign of the democratic free trader. An i that country Down there was covered with mortgages from one end to the other. As i said before the Farmers of this country As a class Are among the most intelligent and industrious of our citizens. To say they have not been prosperous would be to slate an untruth. Ever since the War there has been a steady development of the farming districts. The farms have been put in better shape More pretentious buildings have been erected the Farmer has introduced and is raising bettor Stock than to used to he has More comforts in his Home. When he goes to town or Church he has a handsome Carriage or a Wagon to ride in his boys must each have a horse and buggy of their own the old Man finds that he can Bend his boys and girls away to the Best schools he buys his girls a sowing machine and an Organ or Plana he Bas a Model Home a Model farm and a fat Bank account he is Happy. He has a right to be. He worked Bard for Success. Tile War put an end to slavery and free but what Chance would there Hugo been Trade and since that time there has been for Prosperity of it bad not been for the j no halt in the affairs of the Farmer the Wise course pursued by the Republican Farmers will remember that in the Settle party since it has been to Power v ment of the question that grew out of the War that the democratic party fought every let the Farmer of this country look Back measure looking to the adoption of our to the past let him go Back to the Days present financial system. It exerted every of wild cat Banks. Let him study themes Effort to destroy the Confidence of Theeo urea advocated by the two parties and ask pie in the Greenback and then when the himself which of the two has been ills Best time bad come for the resumption of specie Friend. There can be but oho us ewer it payment As promised by the Republican a the of it pm Bli Pajl party. I party the democrats Haft taken such a liking to greenbacks that they wanted Anil i advocated an unlimited Issue of them they wanted to make it a Flat Dollar. They wanted to take a piece of Blank paper and stamp on it this is a Dollar. They did not propose to put on it this is Good for i one Dollar in Gold or Silver of presented at the United states Treasury or any sub Treasury of the United Stutes. No they advocated a system that was infinitely worse than that of the wild cat Banks that existed before the War. Now after the government had resumed specie payment the democratic party swung into line and acknowledged that resumption was the Only proper thing that could have been done because the government had so promised. And yet in the very year 1879, Bat the government had promised to resume specie payment the democrats were advocating hat mopey and hooting at the id of the Goy err sent res Piring specie payment. Rut the government did resume. Special great increase in our business has forced us to build a big addition to our Large double stores where we will carry a full line of carpets curtains Oil cloths new goods arriving daily. Inspection solicited Chas. A Bronson a real estate Exchange Defiance Ohio. The clip in that the farming communities at this country Are bankrupt is false. The claim that the farm lands have been covered with mortgages because of a protective Tariff is false and the claim that the democratic party has advocated Oue measure in the last thirty years that was honestly intended to be beneficial to the Farmer is false. On the other hand the Republican party stands for Protection to american industries it stands for the Protection of american Wool it stands for every measure that strengthens the Home markets for the products of the american Farmers. That Peerless Leader of men that tearless exponent of republicanism Joseph b. Foraker has been chosen by his party As its Leader in Ohio this fall he Dame from the farm and is in sympathy with the Erp aers and knows their needs. He is their lend. Opposed to him is a gang of Boodler and tally Sheet forger who Are operating under the banners of democracy and trying to comped the decant men of that organization to recognize their Lead ship. Vrho will the Farmers stand with who can they stand with in this contest but Foraker ? Skiver x roads North Richland edited by fat Jack and sum Jim. I have referred to the age of wild Pat Banks for several reasons. A first to fix the time when perhaps a majority of the Farmers under democratic ride were forced to mortgage their lands second to pall attention to the losses sustained by the Farmers through the wild cat Banks and third that i might Call the attention of the Farmer to the fact that through the Wise policy of the Republican party it is possible for him to take a Roll of Bills from the National Banks in Defiance and travel around the Globe and that be will find that they Are taken at Par 1 in every civilized country. Every intelligent Farmer knows that is True and every one of them also knows that while the Republican party was seeking to consummate i the work that has established our credit throughout the world the democrats were Labouring just As hard to take us Back to free Trade and to a system of banking that Drew during the period of their existence the Industrial and commercial interests of the country Down to the lowest level they have reached in its history. Are closing out their Stock in Defiance and will close up their business in the place entirely. Kyj Hub own of by is now being offered at great sacrifices As everything must be sold. We Are holding nothing in of is the time to buy goods cheap. Everybody invited to Call and get great bargains while there is an Opportunity. We want to dose out the Stock the c. L. Luce co. At Flickinger sold stand. Royalists a year or two ago the democrats issued flaming hand Bills in this state showing of they had been True that the farm ors of Ohio wer i overwhelmed with debts Protection you know had forced them to mortgage their lands. Now what were the facts the democrats had gone to the county records Aud secured a list of the mortgages there. Tiey to a the spin to of of those mortgage an lib eled the Granger by pm aiming i hot they covered his laude when this matter was investigated it was found that in some counties where the recorded mortgages amounted to millions of dollars that those covering farm lauds were so Small that they were hardly Worth mentioning. But what property was it that was mortgaged it was the railroads and property of other great corporations. To illustrate. There Are three great trunk line railroads passing through Defiance county. Now say the county records How that they Are mortgaged for $50, too Khz. Now say for the Sake of illustration that other Large corporations in the county were mortgaged for $0,000,000 say also that there wan absolutely pure
