citizens of Onio will endorse by their
ballots the McKinley tariff bill.
Itis firmly maintained by demo-

such a course. It is a fight of the

laborer and the poor.
The farmers and mechanics of
Ohio have long since learned that

THE SCHOOLBOOK QUESTION.
For the Sunday Banner.
He who is truly wise will observe the
conventional to a certain extent. It i
folly to imagine that one person can set at
defiance rules that society has made like
the laws of the Medes and Persians.
We Americans think the rules of for
eign countries very severe and absurd
sometimes, and doubtless they are to us
because of our reputed greater freedom,-
a freedom in many ways tar exceeding
that of any known country. We smile in
pity over the feet of the Chinese woman
thinking them deformed, whereas the
almond-eyed lady considers them bcauti-
tiful. We sigh for the French girls im-
mur. d in convent walls; nnd for the Eas
tern beauties condemned to go veiled and
dominoed through the streets; we feel re
lieved not to have to back from royalty
too often, and thank God generally that
we are not t-s other men, but a grand, free
republic, where thought and action are
untrammelled. But stop.
In one of our late magazines is related
the incident of a young lady recognizing a
a coachman on the box of a private ca r-
rioge, as one wbo had served her family in
:-imil&r capacity and been much liked.

A few days ago i wrote au article for the
Banner, in which i stated that the North
ern Histories adopted as text books by
maiiy of the Boards of Education in our
nblic schools, term Jhe late war the re-
llion, and call those Southern people
who participatedln it rebels and traitors,
guilty of treason, &c. In this article, I
propose to prove that we were no such
thing, but on the contrary, the Northern
people who forced us to fight, are and
were, the rebels and traitors. Who are
rebels and traitors in a political sense, for
this is the light under which we must view
this question. I reply, it is those who dis
regard the constitution of their country,
who seek to overthrow it or any part
thereof ; in other words, to render it null
add void. I claim that the abolitionists
North did it. Now for the proof.
It is well known to all readers of United
States histories that in 1850, California ap
plied for admission into the union as a
non-slaveholding state. The abolitionists
favored it, the democrats opposed it, for
the reason that a portion of the territory
was soutb cf the Missouri Compromise
line, namely 36 deg. 30 min. After much
angry debate and delay, when war between
these parties seemed inevitable, Mr. Dou
glass introduced the Omnibus Bill, which
amongst other things, provided for the ad
mission of it as a State, and aho to. more
effectually carry out the provisions of the
Constitution in regard to the rendition of
fugitive slaves. By this compromise the

but what was the consequence ? Did they
pass acts in their several states as they
promised ? No, instead of so doing, every

HOW THE WHEELS OF THE AD-

THE IDEA INDORSED. REPUBLICAN NOMINATION.
The mid summer festival is the thing.
Juiy 16th is the day aud a great day
will be. ^
There will be thousands of farmers
here from tbe country for miles around
who will come to the Alliance rally,
and to see the grand pageant which
will grace tbe streets on that day.
They will bring their wives and chil
dren and together with the recple from
the towns around Athens will consti
tute a larger crowd than Athens has
ever before seen within her gates.
The idea is a good one, and has re
ceived the indorsement of | numbers of
the Athenian merchants and business
men who have the progress and upbuild
ing of the city at heart.
Several of them were interviewed on
yesterday and all say thbl without
doubt the plan is the best one that has
been suggested in a long time for adver
tising tbe city and showing up its re
sources. — /■

which exists between city and country

I was told to-day that Commissioner
of Pensions Raum, with the assistance
of the pension attorneys, had made
himself solid with the administration,
and that in consideration of he and the
pension attorneys having agreed to
swing the G. A. R. into line for Harri
son that gentleman had agreed to for-
t all the damaging charges that ho
d been brought against Raum and al
low him to continue in charge of the
Pension Office. This deal gives Mr.
Harrison the active support of theNa- *
tional Tribune, Lemon’s paper, and
also of a new soldiers paper which ia to
be started at Chicago by the pension
ring. If true, it may in the end turn...
out to be dearly bought support.

shedding many tears.
