FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES,
Xfc. 33- HAYES.
FOR VICE PEESIDEirr,
W. A. WHEELER.
KEPtniLK'AN STATE TICKET.
HON. R. YILLBAFi3,
of Multnomah county.

Gov. R. B. Hayes, of Ohio, the
nominee of the Cincinnati National
Republican Convention for President
of the United States, was Humiliated
after the seventh ballot. It was gen
erally conceded, before the meeting of
the Convention, that Blaine ws the
man, that he had the necessary number
ot delegates to secure the nomination.
Rut it seems that the great public for
once were deceived, and another, Mr.
Elaine's equal iu everv respect, a sound
Republican, ha received the post of
honor. Goy. Hayes will receive the
entire vote of the Republican party
Mr Blaine would have received no
mote. Gov. Hayes i9 one of the first
men of the age, able, consistent, pru
dent, honest and true what more can
the people ask at the hands ot our next
President? Gov. Hayes has beaten
every Democrat that has been placed
before him, until it ha become a fixed
habit with him, and he will beat any
man the St. Louis Convention can or
may put up against him. j
Hon. W. A. Wheklkr, of New
York, is a staunch, reliable Republican,
man of great ability, of sound judg
ment, and a character above reproach.
He, too, will receive the entire Repub
lican vote of the country. Both men
are popular with the people, possessing
sterling worth and character for up
rightness and integrity which endears
them to tb masses. ? - . .
With two such men as standard
bearers, the Republican party will go
to the polls in November united and
strong, and will sweep everything be
fore them. New York, Pennsylvania,
Ohio, Illinois the four great States,
will cast their electoral vote for Hayes
and Wheeler, while the smaller States
will tall into line, marchikg to the
music of the Union and the Old Flag.
A better selection could hardly have
been made, and we unite with the true
Republicans everywhere in congratu
lating the Cincinnati Convention on the
choice they made. And now let Repub
licans everywhere go to work earnestly,
that we may poll the largest ma
jority, in November, for Hayes and
Wheeler, ever given candidates for the
highest offices in this Nation..
When a certain woman in town
speaks of her "late husband" you must
not conclude that she is a widow. Her
husband is living, but he never comes
home until midnight. ,

YoufDemocratic politician and editor
is discouraged and really put out at th
late National Republican Convention,
because Blaine was not its nominee for
the Presidency. They had made calcu
lations on his being the nominee, and
had doubtless written up column aftei
column of "red hot" Democratic pabu
lum, charging upon him every crime in
the decalogue, and they calculated with
this "rod hot" material, revamped, al
tered and amended from week to week
to give it the appearance of new matter,
to make the canvass without the usual
hard scratching for ideas. The popular
branch of the National Legislature, too.
in the hands of the Democracy for the
first time iu nearly two decades, has
used its five months of power in trump
ing up and endeavoring, in every con
ceivable way, to subtantiate charges of
corruption and wrong-doing against
Blaine and others, for campaign use
alone. After neglecting important and
needed legislation for tlie country, and
using every trick and device known or
ever heard of, publicly and by stealth,
at an expense to the country of hun
dreds ot thousands of dollars, these
Democratic ''smelling committees" have
failed to create even a suspicion, in any
fair mind, of even a squinting at wrong
doing on the part of Blaine. No man,
in or ont of Congress, was ever hunted
with such persistency, with such unflag
ging industry, and with such vindictive
hate, as the ex-confederates ot the pres
ent Congress have displayed in the case
of Blaine and, as the records prove,
without a shadow ot cause.
Although Mr. Blaine came from the
ordeal put upon him by Democracy,
with clean hands, every charge clearly
disproved, yet had he received the nom
ination at the hands of the Republican
National Convention, every one of the
charges put forward by the ex-Confcde-rate
House against him, although dis.
proved in the very House where made,
by unanswerable and indisputable evi
dence, would have been hurled at him,
dressed in every conceivable shape, from
every Democratic stump speaker and
through the columns of every Demo
cratic sheet in the country. This is
As Gov. Hayes has been selected as
the Republican standard-bearer, we find
even the better informed Democratic
inkslinger nonplussed, and the worst
they have been able to urge against him
is that he is a "fourth-rate man," while
the less informed cry out in despair,
"who is Hayes ?" thus blazoning their
own ignorance of the man whose name
is indissolubly connected with the histo
ry of his country when that country was
iu direst peril. The noble efforts put
forth by Gov. Hays in defence of the
Union, iu defence ot human rights and
human liberty, has made tor him a name
that will be handed down through the
ages with love and veneration as long
time shall last, .
Thus it will be seen at a glance, from
the above and other reasons that might
be adduced, Democrats are discouraged
at the very turn-loose, and are bait
whipped before the canvass is fairly
opened. The St. Lous Convention, just
as likely as not, will result in another
Greeley sell-out, and Gov. Hayes will
quietly walk over the track into the
White House with scarcely a show ot

The Democrats ha e had full con
trol of the House. of Representatives,
for the past six months. What have
they done to merit public confidence
and future support? Nothing! Their
labors have been barren of any good
results. The people' time and money
have been recklessly squandered on
fruitless investigations, started for no
other purpose than to give the Demo
cratic party a little political capital in
the Presidential campaign. They will
not only fail to secure this capital, but
they are like'y to iose what little they
had formerly gained.
An immense ratification meeting, the
largest since the rebe lion, was lield ir
Washington on the night of the 19th,
the utmost enthusiasm prevailing. Gen.
Logan presiaed, and speeches were made
by Sherman, Morton, Freliughuysen,
Oglesby, Taft and Butler. After the
adjournment of the meeting, the crowd
proceeded to the residence ot Blaine,
who, in a brief speech, pronounced the
nominees of the Cincinnati Convention
as the most acceptable to the masses that
eonld have been made. lie heartily
endorses the nominees.

repeated skinnings received at his hands.
The.enthnsiastic ratification meetings
held all over the country, evidence the
popularity in which our candidates are
held by the people. Not a particle of
dissatisfaction appears anywhere, and
their election is a foregone conclusion.

the magnificent Corliss engine, mad in
Providence, R. T., which furnishes the
motive power for all the machinery that
is not self-propelling. It consists of an
immense fly-wheel. 30 ' t in diameter,
two feet in thickness and 50 tons weieht,

olutions a minute by the piston rods of
two cylinders : and so silently does it
fierform its work that even when close
beside it you can hear the lowest tones

the main shaft, which by gear-wheels
six feet in diameter connects wi'h eight
lines of shattyig each 635 feet long,rnn

communicating their motion by leather
belts to the various machinery on the
floor. ' - v

power in pumping, hoisting and lifting

manufacturing locomotives and railway

products, and in aerial, pneumatic and

processes of rock drilling, of well and

prosperity and independence.
