we decide who is to be Harrison's successor.

heroics, except atriong'renublicam. Some
think the battle was lost us on the tariff i:
sue. If that be true, It were better so ; for
brave and conscientious mcn,who fight for
a Heaven-inspired cause, can afford to : be
., beaten, for they know truth and right mutt
r : prevail and will rise triumphant some day,
and they who stood by those sterling prin.

Is making much ado about the negro.
"3rantituflri)f his eight years of almost ab
, ' . . solute monarcliial rulc.could not,or at least
t ,(. , did not, ameliorate the alleged suffering of
that race unfortunately given the right of
. .franchise ; so if Mr. Harrison, will be a man
' and not be led by a string whilst tlie chiv
alrous Jngalls griids his hand organ, lie
will let the negro question severely alone
V . and with all true democrats over the land
. recommend and secure legislation that will
' make taxes general and not special ; ex
. , pcnditurcsTrugal, not wasteful, and at all
n:-. .hazards have local self-government main
. taincd. The questions to-day dividing the
... two great parties arc practical ; they relate
to conduct and course of government. The
attitude of either party toward any question
of the day is determined from the theories
. which they have held from the beginning.
; ; We confidently expect to see the republican
' party break down in its attempt to govern
the country. It Is still a war party. .It Is
not for National uses or for a state of peace.
Its cohesive principle is a system of legal
ized robbery and jobbery ,born of war.which
. appeals to organized capital, and the pledge
of a system of agrarian pillage, given to an
' army of camp followcr,with whom it pro
poses to disgrace the American soldiers
roll of honor, the pension list.
Such Is, In truth, the republican party,
and whatever it attempts that is in variance J
with the constitution and the rights of
states and mankind under It will be met by
the honest democrats of the East, West,
North and South, who shall settle the ene
my's fale when the time rolls round for
voting again. Let us therefore be patient.
Notice well every movement cf the enemy.
Do not allow him to flank us, and now as
the new year Is well nigh upon us let us
resolve to do our duty toward our erring
brethren by explaining to them just what
democracy Is and what It will do on'Its re
turn to power J - May every reader of the
