GILBERT the pres ent and next Congressman from this district is undoubtedly the embodiment of what it takes to constitute a statesman Ever since he took his seat in that body of law makers he has shown him self to be a Representative of which any district in the United States might justly be proud Born and reared on the farm he has received that schooling that has helped to make so many illustrious states men No one could be closer to the common people than he for is e one of them It is true that he has accumulated by strict application to business something for a rainy day but he is one of us always ready and willing to help the down trodden and oppressed never faltering from duty always cour teous and obliging wholesouled big hearted intelligent and ev ready to asssist his constituency in any honorable way possible Wee have tried him we know him learned to admire respect and love him we know the gold of Opher nor the silver of Peru could not i fluence him to deviate one jot or title from his path of duty and when the November election shall have conic and gone we shall find that the people of this district appreciate a good thing when they see it and will return him to Con giess by the largest majority any one has yet been elected from 1tht Eighth district His most biter t political enemies concede that he is a lawyer a gentleman and a statesman and that he represents his constituency in a way of which they are proud and many a R publican will cast his vote in N vember for the roan they know competent to represent them and io home feeling they have done 2theit duty to their wives the children their God aadtlieiV coun try Tile Legislature has at last con vened and now if the Republicans are as anxious for a nonpartisan election lawJ as they pretend to be let them show their hand and not oppose everything the Democrats propose and then offer nothing themselves Oneof the Brown Democratic Legislators said the Republicans would oppose all the Democrats do in order to keep the present law in force expecting Federal interference in the election this fall as their only hopes And further he says the Brown Demo crats will nearly all return to the fold if the present election law is repealed and a fair law passed in stead which of course will make the Republicans fight to a finish anything and everything that comes in sight in the shape ofat election law Why shouldnt they when the last ray of hope is for ever gone when the present law is repealed or so amended as not to be objectionable to the disaffected elements of Democrats Let the Democrats get down to business and stay with it till this thing is satisfactorially settled AL A DISPATCH from Frankfort says the Ohio election law is being in vestigated by a number of leading Democrats with view to proposing an exact copy of it for adoption by the Legislature al this special session The Ohio law instead of placing the power in the hands of three commissioners puts it all in charge of the Secretary of State who has the appointment of all elec tion officers If the Goebel law is repealedat all it seems likely the Ohio lav will take its place It is probable that a caucus of the Dent ocrats will be called as soon as the Legislature meets to adopt some plan for the party to pursue in en acting a new law or in amending the old one McKiNLEY has not yet made theIfurther developements We havnt yet it seems in his opinion had war enough and if our troops rC main there a while longer it is more than likelylhat we will get into international complications that we never will rightly

Democratic candi date for reelection to Congress is addressing a crowd of 400 at the courthouse this afternoon Mr Gilbert discussed national issues at length and predicted Bryans election by a larger majority than any President since the secession of the States In discussing State issues he said the Republicans were making a great howl about civil liberty He said they destroyed it by murdering the
