The Y. L. R. R. A. will give a liter

the il. A. R. hall. The p. ople of this
city would do well to patronize this en
tertainment and olfer a little assistance
to this good cause. Onl' a few days ago
the association si cured the services of
the Welsh Prize Singers, and had the
smallest attendance at that conceit we
have witnessed at any entertain
mi nt in the opera house for a long time.
Tin- singing was of the highest class and
wa- very much appreciated by all
who took a-.i vantage of this rare
opp unity, but bo'h (he singers and the
you:i i-:di'-s the .-ieciation felt very
milch vi;.sappoiofed to sece such a slim

furni.dirs good reading of every descrip

way of securing good reading are at
l:b i ty to vicit the re ading room where
tln-y can find whatever news they want
free of charge. But such an institution
eannot support itself, so the citizens of
Piattsiaouth should give just a little as
sistance, il not much, by patronizing an
occasional entertainment given by these
voung ladies, and by so doing, which
would cost but very little, would largely
ln-lp to support it. We hope to sae the
social next Tuesday well attended. The
entertainment will consist of music, read

unquestionably true, as they nssert, Hint
,, ,i , , ,. , i i i i .
the Democratic party now holds the
Presidency and one branch of Congress
through a systematic suppression of votes
in the Southern States.
The fact is no
longer denied, but openly and iniucently
proclaimed by Southern papers and poli-
tkians thaKhe coloud vote has len
pructically removed by fraud and vio-
lence, and that they do not propose to
. . , . ., . .

and justice, and has done so for many
ye;iks. Hut the story of wrong and crime
diAs not stop there. It is not in the
South alone that illegal methods are em
ployed to achieve Democratic success. A
similar policy prevails to an alarming
extent iu tin; North. In not a single one
of the large cities v here the Demoeiats
have control docs a perfectly honest elec
tion ever take dace. Home of the frauds
that have been discovered in that relation
are quite equal to any that have been
perpetrated in the South; and in every
instance the guilty parties have been
Democrats, operating with the nppioval
of the leaders of their part.
It is a notorious fact that no Democrat
ic legislature has ever pasted a sound and
efTective registration law, or taken any
other honest step to protect the purity of
the ballot-box. All legislation of that
kind has been accomplished by Republi
can votes and influences. The D niocrat
ic record is one of persistent opposition
to the idea of preventing corruption and
seeming to all classes of citizens the right
to cast an honest vote and to have it fairly
counted. In Ohio, Indiana, Illinois,
and other states, the courts have been
called upon to deal with cases of forgery
and perjury showing a deliberate purpose
on the part of democratic election officers
to defeat the popular will and make a
mockery of the law. This is one of tin
grave dangers to our institutions, and
one that nil good citizens should be anx
ious to remove. It is idle to talk of the
strength and glory of government by the
people, of the people and for the people
without sin assurance of integrity and im
partiality in the processes that govern
our elections. As the Ohio republicans
insi-t. "Fkc Siiut untn niuuh-d suffrage
lies at the foundation of the republic."
That is the basis mid defense of all our
political rights and pri ilcg( s. When the
source of popular power is corrupted, we
are at the mercy of the worst elements of
society; and that is precisely what the
democratic party nicst relics upon to
maintain its supremacy and promote its'
general interests. The people should not
fail to give careful attention to this
feature of the situation. It is even more
impe rtant in its way than the tariff or
any other current question; and the re
publican party is bound iu duty and
honor to make it a prominent issue in the
coming national campaign. Globe Den;
