, mtio Candida inr PwwUUint,
j Tim Democrats of northern Ohio are
Just now taking an unusual interest in
ithe great political tragedy which their
jparty is placing upon the boards of the
inational theater at Waslihurton. Their
lehagrin at the failure of their party to
'keep ite pledges knowB no bounds. They
(are In favor of a radical reduction of the
(tariff, and upon that line they are mass
ing their forces for 1888. They will fa
wot only such a candidate for the proai-
Hency as will voice this sentiment. A
general opinion prevails here that the
Iman whose political course has been con
aistent and who has the best claim to
ithe honor of a Democratic nomination is
n Obioan. Be is a free trader, a single
Itax advocate and a Henry George adher
ent. That Ohio Democrat is Congress
man Tom L. Johnson of the Twenty
first district. This sentiment, thus far,
is confined to northern Ohio. Two ar
guments are advanced in favor of John
son by his followers. Be is absolutely
consistent and is not prominently con
nected with any particular faction of his
iparty in Ohio. He is not as near to the
(Cleveland administration as is ei -Governor
Campbell, but much nearer than
I There are many reasons why Demo
crats think there is reason to believe the
nomination, is coming west of the Alle
ghany mountains. Ohioans say the party
must not go too far west. They believe
Ithe Republicans will find their candidate
in northern Ohio and in the person of
Governor JtcKinley, and why, say the
Democrats, should we not find our lead
er on the same ground? They say, too,
that no man in Ohio has been more pro
nounced in his opposition to Governor
UcEinley's views than has the free trade
representative of this district.
! Jadge E. J. Ian din of Cleveland, who
stands among the most influential party
advisers of the state, made a significant
remark the other day in characterizing
Congressman Johnson. "He is a Napo
leon," declared the judge. "He is am
fbitious tp be a Vanderbilt and equally
ambitious to be president of the United
8 tales. Be will be a Vanderbilt, and he
may be president of the United States." .
Judge Elasdin's views will find ap
proval in many minds. Men who know
Johnson admire him. Like the immor
tal Blaine, he is magnetic; like Presi
dent Cleveland, he cares for no party
faction; but, like great Ctesar, he is am
' Be is a man of immense wealth and at
the same time has a bigfollowingmong
,the laboring classes. By a display of
frankness at least he has made for him
self s substantial following. Tom L.
Johu&m occupies a unique position in
Ohio politics, The boldness of his views
has fascinated men who hold opinions
entirely at variance with his own. An
outspoken warrior in the arena of poli
tics is a novelty. It is especially difficult
for Ohio Democrats to find a leader just
now whose views are known. In John
son a leader has been found whose polit
ical creed is as clearly outlined and as
fearlessly proclaimed as is the creed of
Governor HcKinley, whom Ohioans, re
gardless of party, have come to call the
logical candidate of the Bepublicans for
the great contest of 1396. The only ques
tion which Democrats here are collid
ing is as to whether the views of the sin
gle tax member from Ohio will meet
with the approval of the convention
which will be called upon to name the
Ohio Democrats have gone into many
conventions heretofore wnku delegation
di"idcd among itself. - There have been
3IcLeans and Thuimans, Paynes and
Pendletons, and today there are Erieea
and Campbells. Factions, fatal fac
tions, have marked the conventions of
Democrats of Ohio for 20 years. The
man who belongs to no faction and who
has not grown two great by feeding upon
the meat of ambition will be a star act
or in the Democratic farce coniedv of the
summer of 1S98. The name of Tom L.
Johnson seems to start a spirit of en-i
thusiasm among the taction of "kids" j
and "inossbacka" alike, and it would!
not take much to start his political
stock moving skyward. " I
The rise of Congressman Johnson has !
been remarkable. Ten years ago he was i
in obscurity. He made a few fortunate
investments in street air enterprises' with j
his limited means. He has quadrupled I
bis fortune about every two years. Six
years ago he entered politics with a well i
filled barrel and a first class following, j
He met with defeat. Two years later he !
tried it and won. He was re-elected over
the Hon. 0. J. Hodge, and he will be
nominated once more without opposition j
this fall. Be will have to work against j
disrupting factions, and it is this single !
fact that causes apprehension among his '
friends. If he can overcome party oppo- j
sition. he may get his seat in congress i
once more. . i
A prominent Cleveland Democrat, just j
returned from the state capital tonight,
stated that the political battlefield of the ,
nation was going to center in Ohio for !
the next two years. He drew a little di-'
agram of the political battlefield about ,
like this: "John B. McLean, editor of '
the Cincinnati Enqnirer, will bo a can- i
didate f or the senate to succeed Calvin
B. Brice. I am absolutely certain of!
this fact. Senator Brice will be a presi-1
dential candidate, and so will Tom L.
Johnson. Ex-Governor Campbell can i
expect nothing, for he is faithless to his j
friends and does not remember them.
Johnson is a stronger juan in Ohio than i
Brice. Both are rich, and both are fight- j
era. Neither will yield -until beaten. !
Johnson will win." , -
It is generally conceded that the pre- j
liminary skirmish for Johnson is to be I
made this fall If be can overcome party
factions and a Republican majority in .'
hie own uongresliioual district, he will be
a leading candidate before the Demo-:
.crime convention of 1898. Cleveland !

TO PREVENT BLINDNESS.
Law to Punish Unfa For Ignorance, and
Caxvlcaanaaa In Nvglectiog Babtea,
The Staig Medical society has done
well in calling public attention to the
fact that a large proportion of the blind
ness of the world is duo to the disease
cr.lled ophthalmia neonatorum, and that
the well known treatment of this disease :
bv a physician at a unflirieutly eai iv pe-1
rind in its course almost uiw;ys.rmlts ',
ii: preventing the blindness that would
otuerwise follow, fat tan reason the
scoiety recommends tlie enactment ot a
law that has been already adopted in a I
nvtmuer ot states, to tnis ettuct:
Should one or both eyes of an Infant
become inflamed or swollen or reddened
at any time within two weeks after its
birth, it shall be the duty of the midwife
or nurse having charge of such infant sa !
report in writing within six hours to the i
health officer or some legally qualified
physician cf the city, town or district in
which the parents of the infant reside
the fact that such inflammation or swell
ing or redness of the eyes exists.
The proposed statute impose a penal
ty for noncompliance. A specific penal
ty is necessary to make any statute ef
fective, but the value of such an enact
ment would be mainly to draw atten-
tionto the necessity of timely action,
since it is improbable that any parent or
nurse would willfully neglect the precau
tions necessary o save a child from
hiindnessif the nature of the case were
understood. For this reason the decla
ration of duty made in the pcragraph
quoted, if it could be nnivcrsally circu
lated, might accomplish almost as much
cs if forinaiS- enroled by the legislature.
The common affection referred to, the
"sore eves" of uewly born infants, is one
that yields almost certainly to very sim
ple treatment, promptlyand skillfully ap
plied, bat that almost as certainly goes
on to destructive inflammation if neglect
ed, and one of the reasons why so many
infanta become blind iasimnlv that rlw
Ma charge of them do not understand, as"
r.ny physician would, with whataserions
matter they have to deal.
A. legislative enactment would make
i; easier for health officers and others to
bring the subject to general attention
end especially to impress its importance
upon those who are recognized as .nurses
or mid wives. The greatest number of
cases of neglect, however, occur anion;;
the very poor, or in the remote conutry,
where these things are left to volunteers
and hygienic intelligence penetrates
slowly, end we ahull have to nanglusome
education with our legislation success
fully to combat this dreadful 3courge.
CONGRESSMAN FIELDER'S SAUHY.
It Cow to tile Widow of the Man Be Sue
eeedeu His llrad Friend's Daughter,
Tho house oucht to miss a resolution
excepting Congressman Fielder of Kow !
Jersey from the operation of the Uw
which deducts the pay of the members
who are absent. If anytnmg is taken
from Mr. Fielder's salary, it will not
come out of his pockets, but will dimiu
iah the income of the widow of ex-Con-fressman
McDonald, whom Mr. Fielder
succeeded in congress. When Mr. Field
er was nominated and elected, he volun
tarily offered to turn over to Mrs. Mc
Donald the entire salary which her hus
band would have received, less the
mount necessary to p:iy his hotel ex
penses in Washington. This agreement
he has religiously kept. Out of Mr.
fielder's $10,000 salary for his two years'
term, Mrs. McDonald will receive bo- j
tween 87.000 and SS.000.
There is an interesting story connect-
ed with this incident. On the day upon
which Mr. McDonald died a daughter
was born to him. Mr. Fielder's name is 1
George; his wife's name is Eleanor. The '
little daughter of his dead friend is 1
named Georgiao Eleanor McDonald. i

Good-Value In an Old Carpet.
A very much worn and sadly dilapi
dated carpet covered the- floor of tho !
cogmer a omcp m tne mint. Anew ono
involved the expenditure of perhaps $75,
and for weeks Superintendent Town
tend has endeavored to secure remission
from the department at Washington to
buy one. The mass of red tape and the
ibfiteulty of obtaining money for any
purpose balked him, but he peggedaway
jMtiently and a day or two ago had tho
satisfaction of gaining permission to buy
the needed carpet, which cost him a little
more than $70. The wretched old cov
ering was burned. The ashes were re
fined, and they yielded $100 of gold. '

The adulteration of rubber is some
thing remarkable, and in order to make
it weigh more bnrytes, white lead or
most anything is used. The consumer is
attracted to the product because it is
cheap, but he pays just so .much more
Vs1 pound for the heavy minerahi com-
pouuded. Insulating men use a very
cheap rubber coming from the eastern
coast of Mexico and Nicaragua, It sells
for about 16 cents per pound and can
hardly be called rubber. Chicle is very
cheap and used in the manufacture of
chewing gum. Tho whole subject is
oue of prico, and as you cannot get some
thing for nothing ym oannot get last
ing mechanical goods at a quotation
which will not pay weight for woight f or
the rubber supposed to be in them.

Last June, Crawford brought Ids
twelve months uld child, suffering
from Infantile diarrhoea, to me. It
bad been weaned at four mouths old
and being sickly, everything ran
through It like water through a sieve.
I gave It the usual treatment in such
cases but without benefit. The child
kept growing thinu-r until It weighed
hut little more than when born, or
perhaps tuu pounds. I then started
the father to giving Chanilierlain'a
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.
Bofore one bottle of the 25 cent slite
had been used, a marked improvement
was seen and Its continued use cured
the child, Its weakness and puny
constitution disappeared and its father
and myself believe the child's life was
Buved by this Remedy. J. T. Maklow,
