. The Republican For 1888.
The presidential campaign of 1888
promises to be fought out with great yig-
or in all the Northern States of the Un
ion, and in some of the Southern States
us well. Fortunately for the Republican
party, the great issue has been made up
in advance of the opening of the canvass,
so that it may be discussed intelligently.
lue President of the United btales, as
the leader of the Democratic party, has
announced himself in favor of maintain
ing the internal tacs, and of then reduc
ing the revenues from imports to a point
which shall make the whole merely suffi
cient to meet the current expenses of the
government. Tne democratic press and
a majority of the democratic members in
congress have announced their accept
ance of this platform.
The republican party, on the other
hand, stands squarely upon the platform
which it has occupied for more than a
quarter of a cenbury that of protection
to Amsrlcan industries; to which is ad
ded the unrestricted right of suffrage
and an honest count of ballots cast.
The issue thus made up, the parties
are preparing for the fray. All over the
country the republicans are organizing.
They are enthusiastic, earnest, and will
make an aggressive and a hot fight, and
are confident of success.
The Republican is what its name im
plies, A REPUBLICAN HEWSPAPER.
It will do the best work it knows how
for its party. It will advocate the prin
ciples in which it believes with all the
force of which it is capable. In short,
it intends to do its full share in the work
of returning the republican party to pow
er in the nation. But it will be fair in
its fight, and democrats will have no
cause to complain at its methods. It
will have full reports of the proceedings
of the conventions of both parties., na
tional and state, prepared without bias,
and will present both sides. In short it
will make a complete record of the can
vass. Its news columns will be non-par
tisan; its editorial columns straight re

umns are breezy, while trustworthy. It

In all its editions Tho Rebublioan is
the cheapest paper in the west. The
campaign will extend over a period of
more than seven months, but as we are
specially desirous that The Republican
shall find its way into the home of every
family in the great Northwest wo make
this spkcial offer:

To Correct an Error.
Our local scribe was misinformed yes
terday, and our statement that the funer
al of Mr. John Richardson would take
place from the residence of Mr. Showalter
was an error that we regret.
The funeral was held at his late resi
dence on south Seventh street, at 10 a.
m., the Rev. Alexander officiating, and
the remains were laid to rest in Oak Hill
cemetery. Mr. R'chardson leaves to
mourn his demise his beloved wife, two
daughters, one the wife of W. C. Show
alter and one now married and living in
Washington D. C, and one son living in
the western part of this state but who
was at his father's dying bedside.

French picore'e Cheese.
The cheese for excellence with high livers
is Roquefort. It is French, and made of
goat's milk and herbs. It is very rich, and
is served just before coffee at dinner. Roque
fort is almost a religion with French epi
cures, and is equally well thought of by a
little animal probably first cousin to tho
American "skipper. " This little animal is
also part of the French epicure's religion. If
the cheese does not contain him it is looked
upon with suspicion, as his dirimination is
very fine. Chicago Herald.
