oant uncork until Cleveland speaks, tho
ijjaino and liutler opposition allies Una
themselves complicated on all sides
with prodigious campaign blunders,
No graver campaign blunder could
havo been conceived than tho social
scandal against Cleveland made publio
through an obscure paper in liuuaio,
and spread by cowardly innuendo
through most of tho party leaders.
Honorable exception must be noted of
tho leading Republican journals of
Buffalo, both of which have refused to
soil their columns with tho approval of
a calumny that is certain to reaot over
whelmingly in favor ot Urover Uleve
land in the community where ho is
best known. Tho only responsible
namo that tho malignat defaraers of
Cleveland had to excuse tho use of the
tho scandal, has hastened to wash his
hands of it and acquit himself of tho
crime. Mr. William Purcell, a person
al and political foo of Governor Clove
land, who retired trom the editorial
direction of the Rochester Union and
Adoertizer becauso ho could not sup
port tho Ueruooratio nominee, was
heralded as tho highest Democratic au
thority for tho truthfulness of the scan
dal : but Mr. Purcell, while not disa
vowiug his opposition to Cleveland, si
lences tho campaign liars by tho pnbli
cation of tho following card in his old
paper ot yesterday s date
"1 wo days after tho appearance in
tho BuffUo Earning Telegraph of the
articlo headed "A Tcrriblo Tale," in
conversation with a representative of
tho Now York Sun I remarked that
upon the then oxisting stato of facts
Governor Cleveland must bo consider
cd n moral leper. The conclusion, with
out tho premise, was printed nud has
since been extensively copied. 1 now
desire to say that information has come
to me from a source in which I piaco
implicit confidence materially changing
tho Btato of facts upon which tho re
mark was made, lleiico in justico to
Governor Cleveland, to myself and to
all others whom it may concern,
withdraw tho characterization and ro
quest that hereafter it bo not attributed
tome. Wii.uam l'URCEi.i,
Rochester, August 9, 1884.
Campaign scandals aro always reac
tionary in their elTcct. It was so when
ucneral Jackson was assailed as a se
ducer and an adulterer ; it was so when
Governor Porter was heralded as a lib
ertine in tho Peg Beatty crusade, and
it will bo so in tho Presidential elec
tion of 1881 and for all tho yearn to
como which belongs to free govern
ment. Tho only ossiblo escape tho
fool Blaine leaders have from tho
Cloveland scandal would be in the
threatened retaliatory scandals against
Blaino ; but if Democratic leaders with
dm now clearly visible rotractionarv ve
suits of tho campaign liars in assailing
Cloveland, shall turn tho campaign
liars looso on Blaine, thoy will well do-
gervo to bo defeated and thoy will prot-
ty surely get tholr deaprts. Of all cam-
patgn blunders, tho blundor of the cam-
i paigu Hcanuai-mongor is tuo most latai
to thoso who employ It.
Another campaign blunder is now
developing into cravo proportions and
returns to vex tho fool Blaino leaders.

few gencrnlly characterless Irish lead
ers, and tho nltemptcd hurrah of tho
whole frisli-Aniencan voto to Ulame.
It has reacted simply bccatisu it could
cot do otherwise, and tho wonder is
that party loaders credited with politi
cal sagacity, should have fallen into
such a blunder. It has reacted for
many reasons, nil of whluh should have
been foreseen by leaders of ordinary
intelligence. It has reacted becauso it
as called out Mr. Blaino s offensive
Know-Knothing record in his own
State, where every Irishman was ex
cluded from oven a military commis
sion, and a military company of moro
than ono-lhird Irishmen could not bo
organized in Maine. It has reacted
becauso the pretended Irish leaders
who proposed to deliver tho whoio
Irish-American voto to Blaine, aro rec
ognized, a? a rule, ns mere corrupt par
ty traders in Ireland's woes, and thoy
havo disgusted tho overwhelming mass
of honest Irish voters. It, has reacted
becauso tho disreputable and ostenta
tions trading with disreputable Irish
eaders has aroused the latent hostility
to Irish domination in American politics
that Mr. Blaino planted and watered
years ago, and now there is danger of
tho loss of tho whole honest Irish voto
and of tho loss of lens of thousands of
honest American votes becauso of tho
subordination of a great national cam
paign to a few blatant Irish political
dynamiters, who own aud represent
nothing, but who propose to sell and
buch aro the campaign blunders
which now cmbarass the Blaino lead
ers, and thoy threaten tho gravcat re
fractionary result?. Tho fool Demo
crats would likely havo been no wiser
than tho fool Republicans, but tho
Democrats wcro a month behind in tho
start, aud thoy seo their enemies floun
dering in tho miro thoy cast up to do
filo tho Democrats, and thoy may
thereby escape and win tho battlo by
Republican campaign blunders. Cleve
land is eafe and sereno in tho woods,
and Blaino would bo ten-fold more safe
to-day had Elkins, Reid, Phelps, Smith
and other fool advisers been banished
to tho woods a month ago. Times,
Tho Rev. R. P. Shaw, pastor of the
Presbyterian Church at Sturgis, Mich.,
is a farm believer in "telepathy." or the
conveyance of impressions between
icraons at a distance from each other,
lie says that ho usually knows, with
out being informed otherwise than by
a vague feeling, of tho impending vis
its of persons whom ho has no other
reason to look for, and that thoso pre
sentiments arc nover false.
Tho liquor question is being discuss
cd bv Ncal Dow from tho standpoint
ot prohibition, and by JJio .Lewis irom
that of persuasion. Thoy aro agreed
that strong drink is an evil of the
greatest magnitude. Mr. Dow's argu
ment consists of a vivid presentation of
enormous figures, and his reasoning is
that a trade resulting in such enormous
and widespread misery should bo sup
pressed as being inconsistent with the
eneral good. JJr. J.owis ou tho other
hand, holds that prohibition in Maine
has been a failure, and then proceeds
with tho assertion that prohibition is a
violation of personal liberty, likely to
cause more harm than good to tho
cause of temperance.
A person injured in a railroad collis
ion brought suit for damages in Illi
nois. Tho company asserted that ho
had chosen an incompetent surgeon.
Tho Court held that tho claim, if true,
was no defence to the action, and tho
verdict for the plaintiff was therefore
sustained. Tho liability of tho surgeon
in tho matter was not considered. Tho
Court said : "The liability to mistakes
in curing is incidmit to a broken arm,
and whero such mistakes occur (tho in
jured party using ordinary caro,) tho
injury resulting iroin miuu iiiisuiKes ih
properly rogarded as part of tho irame

from tho breaking of tho arm.
Dan Rice, tho onco popular clown,
onco said that ho was about as bank
rupt as usual. Tho times had moved
past him, ho thought, nnd ho saw no
good reason to beliovo that ho would
ever catch up again. "I havo never
mado money so steadily, pleasantly, or
heavily,' ho remarked, "as when I ran
my ono-horso show. I guess that was
rather beforo your day. I had an exceed
ingly clever trick horsu nnd a modorato-

dozen parcels there, if you
like; no charge. Go all over
the store, up-stairs and down ;
ask for a guide, if you need
one; go alone, if you like
that better. After you have
walked a few miles and
climbed a pyramid or two,
it may be lunch-iime. In the
basement is a place to get a
bite ; and that's the only part
of the entertainment you pay
for. We'd like to have that
free, too, if we could. We
fear the wrong people would
In a sense we do not pay
much attention to visitors.
We do not invite them in so
often as we would, if the
newspapers didn't make us
pay for every hospitable
word. When they come,
one or ten-thousand at a
time, we simply let them
alone, unless they ask for
help We have our hands
full any way; besides, we
don't want people to think
that we ask them here to
draw them into buying things.
What we really do want
is that everybody every
where should have a pretty
accurate notion of what is
going on here; and that's
the whole of it.
