A Good big fat Republican Victory this fall Means cont into Prosperity for the people look at our Farmers right in Defiance county. True their wheat is not As High As it might be. But what of their other products their horses cattle hogs Etc., Etc. Prices for them were never better. The people of Defiance county should not vote the democratic ticket us a matter of sentiment but should instead vote the Republican ticket As a matter of Geo l business. The Republican party has on its War paint and when the Campaign is fairly on it will be observed by All fair minded people in Obi that the so called democratic party has no principles upon which to Stan 1. And cannot win in Ohio upon the platform and issues it has adopted. Republicans should put aside All personal matters and stand for principle. Any Republican who does less than this is most certainly not a Good Republic n or his principles Are not firmly rooted. Eap pm a ii a cold tile news after the Irish and \ Cha.

Gee. K Nash senator m a Hanna and major Dick were also entertained. A reception for the Benefit of the boys of the press was Given in the Elk Parlours immediately after dinner and All had a Chance to rub up against the distinguished visitors. Gov. Roose Volt impresses one As an honest and sin for months the democratic press of j Cere Man a polished gent Leman and a the country has been trying to give out j scholar As All the world knows he the impression that senator j. B fora possesses both mors and physical Courter was opposed to the administration be High Depre. The hero it san of president Mckinley and would Lead Joan in my opinion is even a greater in a fight against the policy of the gov i hero than Admiral Dewey. Roosevelt eminent in the Philippines when con j a Rich and powerful. He was not com Gress convened. Such claims have Only pulled to enter the army and fight but caused the republicans to smile and he did. He put aside every Eon Sidera when senator for a Leer made his great speech at Hamilton Ohio last Friday there was a general scramble of anti expansionist for cover. Senator Foraker is a great Man. Beisa great statesman he is a patriotic american and he stands by the president and the ution save one. The hone r of his country and his ask. The world knows the re snit Dewey the great a re. Simply did his duty As any other Man should have done whose profusion is War. T is what the government turned Aud educated him for. A gloat Honor the dec rations of the residences and Busine houses of Akron were very pretty Ani the enthusiasm along the line of March and at Grace Park where the speeches were made was something wonderful. Dating the Parade the ovation to Geo. K. Nash and especially to governor Roosevelt were continuous and mighty. The tenth regiment of volunteers who were at Santiago acted As an escort to gov nor Roosevelt. Col. Char Dick also marched with these ,although he is a commissioned colonel had the Good be Nee not to Wear shoulder straps. He is popular with his boys the g a. R. People acted As an escort to Hon 460. K. Nash. C. J. T. There of s an article in the it is. Saturday evening signed a ii Meh. And commenting on the Republican convention held in this i v. Thursday. September 21st, that sounded very much like it might have been written by Joe. Leach. There is no ocher coloured Man in town that we know of that is so Rich in Dia Lect a Joe. But then he is a Republican Ami. Even if he intended to make any comments be would not have assumed the role of an irishman. Possibly some one borrowed Joe s dialect. If Ai irishman had been commenting on the Convent in he would have been Impre so by the character of the men making up the delegations he would have been forced to admit that the name of every Man put in nomination we As Good is a a curly company Bond. He would have asked himself when in Ilia history of Defiance county the democratic party had Ever on the democratic ticket As candidate for recorder but the democratic Combine in this City would not allow a Ingle one of Las friends to be placed on the delegation to the county convention. Hence it is the presumption that the comments in the news were made because the republicans had nominated an irishman for representative and that the Ayersville band was jumped upon simply because they had an irishman in Highland township who a so presumptions As to seek a place on the democratic ticket. An irishman does not fight that Way and Ai Joe Lech is not t Well versed in democratic cuss Edness it is evident to eve Yoke that he could not had done More in the mix up in the Neirs then to have had his dialect used by Acme of the members of the Combine delegated to abuse the Irish. A High handed game is going in in this City and some one has borrowed the dialect of j�>9 Leich in a Covert attack upon the Irish and the Ayersville band lint attention might in drawn away from the Combine in this City that is so systematically gutting and skinning the Irish and country democrats.

A j taken up a big hearted full blooded irishman and placed Bim at the head of its ticket. He would also have rec ailed the fact that while democracy is Ever scheming to hold the Irish vote that it always pays off its debt to the Irish by making some member of the party ii Polit Man or a janitor the Democrat c lottery tickets Are cot arranged for the drawing of a greater prize by the Irish. An irishman would not have attempted his Story in negro dial it. An irishman would also have remembered that while the Republican party Dors not run it legs off trying to Herd the Iri Idi vote it Doe Honor irishmen and men of Irish descent with the highest offices in its gift from the presidency Down.
