If he has dono so ignoraiitly, I have

A man who would spend $5000 to
corrupt innocent citizens, in order to
elect himself to a position of trust and

thus defeat worth and competency, and

call a brute. I should classify him

I expected to displease many. X did

will say of X: He is either a newcomer
or has boon asleep all these years, or is

What I wrote and intend to write here
I know of my own knowledge to be
true. Could any ono call thoso men
who a few weeks ago drovo through
all that mud, night and day, disturbing
iioooio in their peaceful slumbers, uiu
tributing whiskey from their jug on all
hands, for tho purpose of defeating tho
will of the people, anything elso than
low, debased creatures 1 Who would
call thoso men, who tramplo on the
law by making youth drunk, nice chris
tian gentlemen?
Anyono who expects to elect himtelf
to oflico cannot be trusted in olliee. To
Bteal is no worse than that. Perhaps
the thing which distinguishes man from
the brute moro than any thing else is,
that hu 13 ambitious. Ambition within
proper bounds is a virtue- If people
would express their desiro to bo elected
to (illico and permit it to remain at that,
what a glorious reformation that would
be; but it they will attempt to force
themselves into offuo tlmy commit not
only a damnable fault, but aro engaged
in a tow business. I never called a man
who expressed a desire for an otl'ce, a
vile creature, but that ono who was
bent upon electing himself in spite of
the people.
To talk of the law only adds fuel to
the infernal lire, unless seine one takes
tho matter in hand and pushes it. Evi
dence is certainly not wanting. Who
shall it bet Thoso creatures are so de
graded that they take as much pleasure
in tho success of their devilish plots as
old Satan himself. They resemble the
last named individual In that they
laugh at tho remonstrances and threats
of good people.
The man who engages in a personal
canvass has only ono step to all the
corrupt aud contemptible means of a
practical politician and that step is al
most invaribly taken. Coirupt solicita
tion is so common that it is openly
practiced by thoeo seeking every olliee
of tho county, even tho supervision of
schools. Will not tho peoplo wake up
to the enormity of these abuses T
The man who engages in a personal
canvass is a coward. Hu dare not trust
his cliances to tho will of tho people. I
know no person or party in tlu-so arti
cles. I know no rings or cliques ; but
I do know that there aro many in tho
county who need regeneration badly.
Your correspondent who signs himself
Democrat, thinks that in a recent elec
tion wo escaped the Charybdis of lloss
ism only to flounder on tho Soylla of
Dictation. A most unhappy figure!
Our political system at present might
butter be comuared to tho stables of
Augeas, with ono forkful of dung re
moved bv tho recent election. Practi
cat politics might also bo compared to
the Lernaoan hydra, vrhiah for every
head that was cut off, produced I wo in
its stead. I was somewhat surprised
that Democrat did not sav something
about Ixiou tied to his wheel for his
naughtiness with tho divino Juno
CaBting these ancient stones before
politicians is like casting pearls beforo

uompuritiouH, uere is one: win jhhih
cal system is like n nasty slimy worm
which when cut in two produces two
worms and if each part bo cut attain
and again overy little pieco will produce
a worm. Tho only way then to destroy
a worm is to mash it under ono s ioou
Tho only way to destroy practical poll
tics is to mash it. All other means
make it moro vigorous.
This is tho last articlo I shall wnto
on this Bubject. Those abuses, I think
will Bonn h.como unbearable when the
peoplo will liso up in their power aud
kill tho oorrunt politician in cold blood.
Whether they will rise in any other
way seems doubtful to me.
The Cincinnati riots were tho natur
al result of unendurable abuse of public
trusts,

Iho reckless extiavananco which

Senator Logan ought to bo indignant
because these Western soldiers and
citizens went to an Eastern Senator
with their little petition. It is just the
kind of petition he would like to have
charge of. But Senator Logan wants
to scatter the surplus with a smiling
hand. Ills ample lungs dilate With
the wind of emotion, nnd in the matter
of pensions there is need of a little
common sense. If a majority of the
Senators posnees that quality and little
courage, they will see by tho petition
and similar propositions the danger ot
throwing away money tor pensions
that aro not absolutely necessary. The
Government lias already been moro than
generous. It cannot afford to subject
itself to still gi eater burdens.
Uy way of impressing this fact upon

approve tho Mexican War Pension bill

THE TEOUT SEASON.
Tho trout season is almost at hand,
and it used to bo that tho days from
now on would bo anxiously counted as
it approached, by hosts of sturdy lish
ermen hungry for tho exhilerating
sport trout fishing affords, 'to day
its coming excites comparatively little
pleasurablo anticipation, excepting
upon tho part of those who have the
time and means to go to distant points,
for its indulgence.
Trout can thrive in wild land only.
They need the overhanging trees for
food and to prevent their crystal
homos from drying up. Only a few.
years ago there was a plenty of water
in many of our streams up to tho mid
