Election, Tnesday next, Nov. 2d.
"GIVE us Garfield and our Daily
Bread," was the significant motto up
on one of the Republican banners last
IT was a stupid forgery—that Chi
nese labor letterand General Garfieldjlost
no time to brand it as such in very
vigorous language.
PRIVATE Dalzell, we are informed,
was in town last Saturday, coming to
attend our Mass Convention, but by
mistake coming a day too late.
THE epizootic, or horse disease,seems
to be again working itself this way
and horses hereabouts may not escape.
It seems to be in a milder form than
before, but owners of horses should
prepare for it by giving their animals
good care and avoiding exposure as
mach as possible.
"THE Tuesday next following the
first Monday of November," is the lan
guage of the new Constitution of this
State when fixing the time for holding
the general elections. The first Monday
of November this year is the first day
of the month, and hence the election
next Tuesday is on the 2d day.
ONE of the congratulatory dispatch
es recieved by Gen. Garfield, the day
after the Indiana and Ohio election,
was from Petroleum V. Nasby and
read as follows: "There is lots of ag
iny and sorro all round the corners.
Injeany and Barnum's mules kicked
over the traces. There is no hope for
s postoffice. Lord be mercifull to us
poor sinners."
IN answer to a friend we would say
that Messrs. Braham and Bell, our
candidates for the Assembly, will both
recieve the united vote of the party
next Tuesday. They are both good
men and deserve the full, square vote
of all Republicans, and so far as we
know each will recieve it. We advise
the earnest support of both and hope
for their election.
ON our fourth page this week will
be found an interesting "Church Item"
from a friend, giving an account of the
recent meeting of the Pittsburgh Syn
od of the English Lutheran Church at
Worthington, Armstrong county, Pa.,
Those who know Mr. Peter Graff, the
"venerable patriarch" of the church at
Worthington, will bear testimony to
all our correspondent says relative to
his worth as a man and Christian.
BEWARE of apathy ! It is more to be
dreaded now than the Democratic par
ty. The Cincinnati Gazette directs at
tention to the fact that in states where
tbe test is made in October, the vote is
apt to fall off in November. It adds,
by way of warning as to Ohio in 1876:
Re p. Drm.
Secretary of gtate in 0ct0ber...317,866 311,220
President in 1876 297,817 292,273
Falling off 20,039 18,047
The Republican vote fell off, it is
seen, 1,092 more than the Democrats.
The Republican majority for Secretary
of State was 6,636, and for President
5,444. Had the Democrats known
their power, as Tilden expressed it a
few days since, they might have car
ried Ohio fo" President in 1876. These
facts are suggestive.
There are twenty.nine names on the
Electoral ticket. Let each Republican
voter see that that number of names
are on bis Electoral ticket before vot
ing it. And let him scan over the
names and see that they are the same
names as printed in our paper this
week. We give this caution in order
that there may be no fraud practiced in
this county next Tuesday. Very little
attention is generally paid to the names
of the Electors. But they represent
tbe Presidential candidates, and the
omission of one name, or a spurious
name inserted in the list of Electors,
would be juat that much of a loss to
Garfield and Arthur. Greater care is
perhaps required in this matter than at
any previous election. George W.
Delamater is the name of the Republi
can Elector on the ticket for thin dis

Great Outpouring of Republicans-
Ten Thousand People Estimated
to be in Town.
Tnree Thousand Voter 3 Supposed
to be in the Day Procession —
Thirteen Hundred in Torch
light Parade at Night.
Last Friday is admitted on all hands
to have been the greatest day ever wit
nessed in Butler. The unfavorable ap
pearance of the weather did not keep
the people back—though the cloudy
morning doubtless prevented many
more from coming Every township
and town in the county was represent
ed in some form or other. From many,
large delegations came in wagons, with
banners, mottos, glee clubs, etc.—sev
eral delegations came on horse-back.
The procession, when fully formed,
was supposed to be 2 miles in length.
When it broke up, about two o'clock,
every alley and stable in the town was
crowded with horses, carriages or
wagons. The scenes and incidents
would be almost indescriable, and we
cannot particularize when all were so
deserving of praise. An oil derrick
was in the procession in operation ;
and a number of them "same old
coons," caught and brought in for the
occasion. Many good devices about
the tariff and the late rebellion were
also to be seen.
After the people had some refresh
ments a meeting was organized in front
of the Court House, with Hon. John
N. Purviance as Chairman and repor
ters of the press as Secretaries. Owing
to the rain coming on it had to adjourn
into the Court House Addresses were
then made by S. H. Miller, Re
publican candidate for Congress, and
Col. John M. Thompson. The speech
of Mr. Miller was able and eloquent
and much commended by all who
heard it.
But the great feature of the occasion
was the torchlight display and parade
at night,which the people generally re
mained iu the town to witness. March
ing clubs, with their bands of martial
or instumental music, came from Par
ker, Martinsburg, Petrolia, Millers
town, Prospect, Portersville, Harris
ville, Freeport, Buffalo township, and
other places. Mounted companies
came from Petersville and form Penn,
Washington and Concord townships.
These, with the two Butler clubs,when
all were formed into line, made a pro
cess on that filled both sides of Main
street in passing up and down the
same. The best of order was preserv
ed and all kept step to the music iu
admirable style. In addition to this
music was that given by young ladies
in front of the Court House and in vari
ous places in the town, who sang their
campaign and patriotic songs with
much effect. The young ladies from
Middlesex township came in a large
decorated conveyance, fitted up for the
occasion, and sang iu the same, at
tracting the attention of all. But it
wonld be impossible to particularize—
suffice it to say it was a grand and iu
terestiug occasion, and one that will be
long remembered. The Republicans of
the county seemed to have been hold
ing themselves up for the event and
the greatest enthusiam prevailed as
well as patience endured. Not a sin
gle accident happened a3 we have
heard of, although many had to reach
their homes in a rather dark night.
We congratulate all that the Mass
Convention in Butler, October 22d,
1880, was such a success. To be sure
there were some features that might
well have been omitted, such as the
fantastic parts, which detracted rather
than added to the procession. The en
thusiasm of the people this campaign
surpasses that of all previous, and all
should hope,that whatever may be the
result of the Presidential struggle, all
will endure for the better to our great
and common country.
To the. Ladies:
The Committee appointed to provide
a lunch for the marching clubs at the
Convention on Friday, desire to ac
knowledge their gratitude to the ladies
who BO kindly and patriotically gave
their assistance in the preparation of
the sandwiches for said lunch. "Hon
or to whom honor is due;" and we
heartily say it is due to the aforesaid

We are informed that what are gen
' erally termed spur'ous tickets are al
ready in circulation in this county. A
spurious or mixed ticket is one pur
porting to be that of a certain party,
but at the same time having printed
i in it the name or names of some of the
candidates of the opposite party. They
' are generally gotten up to decieve,
i that is, with the hope that some of
| them may be voted without the voter
detecting tho fraud. Nothing could be
more dishonorable in any candidate
than to resort to this mode of eudeav
oring to steal votes from his opponent.
If a candidate of the Democratic or Re
publican party has friends in the other
party who desire to vote him they can
scratch out and write in, or what is
now more common, use what are
termed the "stickers." There is no de
ception in that and it is the act of the
voter himself. But to circulate a ticket
of the opposite party with your name
printed on it instead of that of your op
ponent, without giving information of
the fact is as dishonest as dishonorable.
We know nothing of the facts, but call
attention to this matter in a general way,
that all Republican vuters may be put
upon their guard. This year there are
three separate tickets to vote, the State,
the Judiciary and the County, and
each voter should examine well his
ticket before depositing his bailot.

Care Required At This Election.
At the election next Tuesday we
vote, in this county, three distinct
tickets, to wit: one that will be head
ed with the word "State" and contain
ing the names of the Republican Pres
idential electors and the State candi
date for Auditor General. Then one
headed with the word "Judiciary,"
and containing the names of all State
and County Judicial candidates. Then
one headed with the word " County"
and containing the names of all Coun
ty candidates from Congress to County
The following will be the three
full tickets which must be separated
from each other before voting:

We have thus been particular in or
der that all voters may understand how
to make up their tickets. At the polls
of this election our Republican voters
will observe that the "State" officers,
the Electors and Auditor General, are
printed alone on one sheet of paper,
and that the other two, "Judiciary"
and "County," are printed on another
sheet. By separating these last two
the voter will have the three distinct
and separate tickets that he votes, to
wit: the State in one, the Judiciary in
one and the County in one.

fully the names on his electoral ticket
before voting. We vote for Electors

He Addresses Young- Men—The
North Star A Factor in Poli
tics. A Reminiscence of Josh
ua R. Giddings.
CLEVELAND, 0., Oct. 22.—About
200 Ashtabula people, mostly young
men, called on Gen. Garfield at his
Lawn field home, whom he addressed
as follows:
Gentlemen: I believe you are near
ly all, if not all, luy constituents, tha
this is a home gathering, a sort of
"harvest home," just after the ordina
ry harvest, and just before that other
harvest that somebody will gather in
a short time, and therefore I feel the
utmost freedom in me • tinyou and
greeting you. We have been in the
habit, in this old Nineteenth district,
for i bout 50 years last past, of believ
ing in the existence and steadiness of
the north star, and we have believed
in it in cloudy weather when nobody
could see a star, and amid clouds and
darkness this people kept on believing
in it until nearly all the world saw it,
and saw the great constellation wheel
ing around its steady and immovable
centre. That north star as the symbol
of freedom and the equal rights of all
men, has been kept steadily in view by
the better people of the Western Re
serve these 40 years, for a time long
before these "first voters" were born.
These young men were born in the
belief in it, and will not be likely to
forget it, because it now shines plain
ly in the northern hemisphere.
To speak without a ligure, the peo
ple of this old Nineteenth district long
ago learned to be content with being
right even when tiiey wore in an ap
parently hopeless minority, Your
speaker has referred to Joshua It. Gid
dings. Think of the long hard strug
gle when be was ostricised by ail men
excepting half a dozen at the national
capital, and denied tln; common civili
ties and friendship* of social life, but
he, believing in the immortality of lib
erty, fought on, and fought on, till in
the last days he saw it triumph. I
have never recioved a compliment that
touched my heart more deeply than
when, after a speech I made in Con
gress for the same cause, there came
from Jefferson, the capital of your
county, a letter from the old patriot
thanking me that I had taken ii|> his
work, and saying I was worthily wear
ing his mantle.
I am glad to meet yotf young gen
tlemen. believing you to be bound by
unusual ties to be true to those great
principles that the Western Reserve
helped to plant and cherish. I know
what thia old district has done and
what it has suffered for it; convictions,
and 1 am glad to know that in rainy
and tempestuous weather, in season
and out of reason, the old guard will
be found wherever the banner of free
dom points the way to battle. You are
welcome here to-day, gentlemen, thrice
welcome. We are friends, we are neigh
bors, we are companions iu a common
cause, and I trust that no young man
1 who makes his Jiivt choice of party as
sociations 10-1 lay will Im l sorry for it
when he looks back from the end of
this century to the year of 1880.
