Two years ago the Courier supported the candidacy of Mr. Rich, believing that he was the man best fitted for the office of governor of Michigan. The state convention saw fit to select Mr. Turner as a standard bearer. This paper feit that the convention had made a serious mistake, but it gave Mr. Turner loyal support, as did all of Mr. Eich's friends. Because our wishes were not carried out by the convention, we did not fïnd fault or bolt the ticket. Mr. Turner had no warmer champion iu the state than was the Courier in that cainpaign. But the mistake of the convention was a fatal one, and the party went down to defeat. And now thequestion of governorship comes up agaiu. Mr. Rich is again a candidate. The Courier believes to-day as it did two years ago, that Mr. Rich is the most available candidate the party has for the office of governor. It believes that Mr. Rich's nomination is equivalent to an election. It believes that tlie nomination of 110 other republican is equivalent to an election. If any other caudidate shall be successful in the convention, however, this paper will give that man cordial and hearty support, but the history oí 1890 ought to be a warning to the party. Two years ago there were considerable many kickers in the repubïïcan ranks. There were men who fought a portion of the republican ticket openly and boldly, and souie of these men now appear on the scène advising the republican party what to do. Are such men safe guides for the party to follow ? Will it not be well for the republicana of this county to consider carefully auy step they may take before taking it? The Typographical Union of New York City, known as the big No. 6, by a vote of 500 to 25, endorsed the action of the cotnmittee appointed to attend tlie national republicau convention, with reference to Whitelaw lleid, and thus practically endorses his nomination. This action ought to set at rest the talk of some union men that the typographical union is opposed to Mr. Reid. The Detroit Journal, the leading republican paper of Michigan's metroplis, has some excellent political cartoons of late, and is making rapid advances in the way of excellence.

Stanley is finding that running for parliament in darkest England is more dangerous tlian traveling through darkest África. Judge Gresham would not accept the empty honor of a nomination on the peopíe's party ticket. The Judge is a wise man. " Gen." Stevenson was known in Washington, while Asst. P. M. Gen. (where he received his title of " Gen.") as the "headsman." Tliere will undoubtedly be a solid delegation from Washtenaw county for Col. C. V. R. Pond for Auditor General. He is a worthy man, and one who will be not only an honor to the ticket, but will add strength to it. The expenditures of the present congress so far is -$22,000,000 ahead of the first session of the last or " billion dollar congress," as termed by our friends, the enemy. This bids fair to be a two billion dollar congress. When democratie speakers acense the republican party of being responsible for all monopolies, and assert that all monopolists are republicans, would it not be well for them to explain to the people just how it happens that the Standard Oil monopoly is a democratie institution and the monopolists who own it all democrats ? The tide commences to turn already. Col. V. P. Tomlinson, for the past ten years editor of the Kansas Democrat, published at Topeka, lias withdrawn from that paper, and will support the republican national and state tickets. He favored Hill's nomination, is an able speaker and a strong vigorous writer. Ainong the good men being spoken of for the state offices is Prof. S. E. Whitney, of Detroit, for member of the state board of edueation. He is a gradúate of the Normal School, and has been a successful superintendent of schools at Hancock and is now principal of the Cass school in Detroit. A good scholar, familiar with Michigan's school system and a strong republican give him the requisite qualifications for a candidate. The democratie party by its assemjled wisdom at Chicago, declared emihatically against free silver and for ïonest money, and incorporated such declaration in its platform.. And now he United States Senate has passed a ree silver bill, and nearly every democratie Senator in that body voted for it. i ever a party received a slap direct ,hat is one, and if ever a candidate was mzzled to flnd out what bis party folowers believe, that candidate is Cleveand. A cablegram to the daily papersJast Saturdny reads like this : "Lip ton the fondón tea and provisión mere han t, taid tlie other day in a single check to Ier Majesty's customs the suin of nearly w",000." That is a sample of English ree írade. Every poor person who íiiys any of that tea will be forced to ay Lis or her proportion of that tax. Chat is what " tariff for revenue only " means. There is no tariff on tea or cofee in this country. The poor people can enjoy these beverages without payng any tax thereon. Words of Roscoe Conkling, as true tolay as when uttered by him: " Upon ts record and its candidates, the repubican party asks the country's approval, and stands ready to avow its purpose or the future. It proposes to rebuild our commercial marine, driven from the sea by Confedérate cruisers, aided and abetted by f oreign hostility . It proposes ;o foster labor, iudustry and enterprise. It proposes to stand for education, humanity and progress. It proposes to administer the government honestly, to preserve amity with all the world, observing our own obligations with others, and seeing that others observe theirs with us ; to protect every citizen, of whatever birth or color, in his rights and equality before the law, including liis right to vote and to be counted ; to uphold the public credit and the sancity I of engagements ; and by doing these tfainga the republican party proposes to assure industry, humanity and civilization in America the amplest welcome and the safest home." The 8th section of the democratie national platform calis for the repeal of the 10 per cent. tax on all state bank issues of currency. That is a piece of demagoguery. A sop thrown to the state banks ; but it will fail miserably in accomplishing what it was intended to do. It may satisfy the people of the same unscrupulous kind who, when state bauks were allowed to make bank notes, used to go away out in the country to some hardly accessible town, start up a bank, make bilis, get them in circulation and then fail, leaving the loss to be borne by the poor people who might hold them and have no redress, but it meets with the strongest opposition from the thinking bankers and business men of this country, whether connected with state or national banks, the republican or democratie party. There are thousands of poople left in the United States yet who remember well the old wild cat times, when a man could go to bed with a pocket full of good money and wake up penniless, so uncertain was the stability of the banks issuing money. This plank is simply a bid for rascality and a return to those old ways and days.
