The republican party of Cans county
lws placed before the people a superb
ticket. 'ILere can be no excuse l'or
republicans, tills year, in deserting
their ticket to vote for democrats.
MesM. Newell, Jennings, Eikenbary,
Russell, Alton, Clements Hall, Fair
fiebl, and (Ja:), are good men, compe
tent men, representative men, safe men,
and lust but not least, winning men.
These mca were nominated on account
of their fitness and qualilieations for
the several offlceR to be filled by our
people this yeur; each one of these
gentlemen expects to be elected. Their
candidature is an open, square matter;
they are not put up to be traded off to
help boost some man into a lucrative
oflice. It is a republican ticket notni
nated to be elected, and it certainly de
serves the full and cordial support of
nil true republicans.
The democratic party of Cass coun
ty meet in convention at Louisville to
day. They have a '"mission to perform,
and that is to nominate a ticxet which
they can use to elect one or two of
their nominees for the principal offices
to be filled at this election. Said a
prominent delegate upon our streets
this mornin;: "All we want is
that treasurer's office, we don't care
for the balance of the ticket." This
kind of politics4 of course, may just as
well be understood by democrats and
republicans outset in this con
test. It hasrfucceeded in Cass county
on one . or iwo occasions, we know
of scores' off fjood democrats whose
friends have been sacrificed to further
the personal ends of the bosses in thtt
party, who do not intend that such a
course In politics shall be carried any
further In their party in this county. .

The importance of the elections
wniclijwere held the other day in Ohio
and Iowa have been greatly overesti
mated. To have been of the import
ance which many partis in journals
have ascribed to them; these contests
must necessarily have beeu of a na
tional character, involving national is
sues and testing the strength of na
tional parties; as it was, the two politi
cal parties entered the con lest in these
states with the local question of -the
liquor traffic directly involved ; the1 re
publican party in Ohio taking grounds
squarely in favor of taxing -.the.- evil,
and in support of the Scott law. The
course of the canvS3 prov jd this party
to be correct in its positio 1 and in har
mony with the best sentiment of the
people; another element, however, en
tered the cauvasa, after tle-.se two par
ties had joined issue squarely upon
this question, gaining a strong foothold
before the people on account of the pro
posed amendment to the constitution
prohibiting the liquor traffic in that
state. 2fot satisfied with giving this
amendment only, their support, the
radical temperance element of the
state nominated a separaV and strong
state ticket, entering the . ;!eld as the
prohibition party. In their earnest en
deavors to carryvthe amendment, which
received a cordial and enthusiastic sup
port from the great mass 01 the repub
lican party, this prohibition party
polled ahcavy vote for Mr. Shumaker
their nominee for governor, thus en
suring the defeat of Mr. Foraker, the
republican nominee for governor.
The fact that abosolute prohibition
has a majority, or very nearly a
majority, as the case may be, upon
a canvass of the voti s, of the
electors of Ohio and that espe
cially when a full vote of the
State is cast, as was the case in that
State the other day, is :i startling evi
dence that public opinion, in Ohio,
will demand the enactment of prohi
bitory legislation. Should it turn out
that this amendment ha carried, as ap
pears to be the case, legislation of this
character can no longer be refused
in that State on the ground that public
opinion would not enforce it.
Taking into consideration tho fact
that this amendment leeeived such
a iremenduous "vote, carrying to
the prohibition State ticket enough
votes to defeat the republican State
ticket, certainly robs that contest of
the national importance which might
otherwise be attached to it.
That this vote was an honest ex
pression of the sentiments of the 300,
000 and upwards of Ohio electors, the
other day, must be an admitted fact
That neither of the great political par
ties, in that State, can afford to over -
ljok or under estimate, it a strength or
importance, is alio a fact, which must
convince the candid observer that no
political party can hope to succeed,'(in
that State), in the canvas of '81,
which fails to recognize this sentiment
in favor of better h. iue rule In Ohio.
Tho legislature of Ohio 1 in the
bauds t.f the democratic p.tty ai.d
that party will rii"st certainly be held
to a strict 'accountability by this great
iujss of Ohio electors, who have said
by their votes, that, oyer and above
the conservative and restrictive policy
of the republican party upon this ques
tion, they prefer aud demand absolute
prohibition. The intelligent observer
of events can have no trouble in see
ing t bat the victory just won by de -inocracy
in Ohio is a meaningless and
catastrophe need not come The
national bank circulation was a nec
essarily a temporary expedient, Have
on the basin that the national debt
wan to he perpetual. Now thce
things which were started in a wrong
direction or upon an unsubstantial
foundation arc approaching their
destinations. The effect of previous
fitterfeiencc on the part of the (gov
ernment must be set light before it
can adopt the laissez fairc principle.
When the Government has wound up
some infernal machines and placed
them in finances, it had better take
them out before the explosions take
nlacc. This is precisely the situa-
I tion now.
It is a well established principle of
sound political economy that the less a
government interferes in "money mat
ters, alter it has seen to it that -he cur
rency is honest and safe ami what it
purports to be, the better. It i prop
erly to be left like other things to the
natural laws of supply and demand.
Things would be on a more scientific
basis than they are now if there were
no paper money at all other thau an
absolutely inviolable certificate of de
posit representing com securely locked
up, If there could be such a thing, und
used simply as a matter of superior
convenience, jjut pracucauy men win
not consent to this. They insist to a
certain extent in using promises m pay
for mouev, and this being the casa the
best that the Government cuu do is to
compel the issuers of those promises
to pay to sustain them oy as nearly nn
unquestionable security as can be ar
rived at. To keep them as nearly . sub
ject to the law of supply and demand
is possible, they should have direct
reference to the amount of coin into
which they must be controvertible on
demand uuder all circumstance.--, and
never be permitted to exceed that
amount beyond a per cent agreed upon
by consul valive men. IJy increasing or
diminishing the coin reserve alone
should the volume of paper be increased
or diminished. When money becomm
tight under such circumstances, it is
proper that it should be so in order to
exercise a corrective effect on discrep
ancies in production, ovrtrndiug spec
ulating and in the direction of econo-;
my. It is a sign that it becomes the
people where the want is to exeit itself
to earn what it needs instead vf diH-
counting the future by extravagance
on credit. The temptation of nun
under such circumstances is to call for
more paper, which acts a temporary
stiniulaut and only intensifies the bitti-r
rtsubs 1 the debauch. It id alone by
fastening the paper securely to coin
that the unwise inflation can be
The trouble is just now that our pa
per money is not amenableto the natu
ral law of supply and demand. The
only really and healthfully elastic el
ement there is in our currency is gold.
That is under free coinage and comes
and goes in a legitimate manner. Sil
ver can only be coined at a certain ar
bitrary rate and under such a vicious
principle that it is worse thau nothing.
Our greenbacks are fixed at a certain
amount by law beyond which they can
neither rise nor fall, no matter what the
amount of coin in the Treasury. And
there is little doubt but that they are
unconstitutional besides, and will be
so declared whenever it happans to be
of any particular advantage to an' one
to insist upon the Supreme L'ouit mak-
ins: a decision in me premises, our
national bank notes are unelastic, from
the fact that they are based upon a dis
appearing security which, unless other
provision is made, they must accompa
ny gradually into oblivion. The only
entirely healthy element of the curren
cy, gold, is being steadily undermined,
according to Gresham's law, by depre
ciated silver, though the process is
slow, and is but providentially left
with us, tor the reason that the balance
of trade, owing to good harvests and
other changeable causes, has been in
our favor tor some years. "When once
the tide turns decidedly under present
arrangements, the gold will flow from
us like water from a bucket when the
bottom has dropped out. There is a
pres 6ing invitation both on this side of
the water and the other for it to go at
the first opportunity, and for silver to
stay. There are other unstable fea
tures in the situation, but there are
enough here cited to ponder upon.
Under the circumstances the prin
ciple that a government should leave
money matters to themselves can
not be applied to the United - States
at present. Congress has set some
grievious influences at work in the
currency, aud it is called upon to
correct its mistakes and leave things
where the the natural laws can exert
their salutary effects. It is vitiated
the workings of the resumption act
by providing that a redeemed note
should immediately be paid out
again, and it decreed that a dollar's
worth of gold was worth no more for
money than less than a dollar's
worth of silver; ?.lso that there should
be from $2,000,000 to 4,000,000 of
the silver dollars coined every month
whether any, body wanted them or
not. ..It is probable that these ac
cessions to financial ignorance or cu
pidity were necessary to prevent the
repeal of the resumption act over the
President's vote. And we may be
thankful that the silver coinage
was limited, and that the Govern-
in' nt has so far pocketed the 15 per
cent or so profit, which under free
coinage would ht ve ' immediately ac
crued to the deEtor class at - the ex
pense of the creditor. ; The unsettlo-
ment of toe values w;is thus staved
off to give Congress a chance to grow
wiser aad remedy thing o that the
