It is an unerring index that Ohio,
witn ner ovcrwneinimg iiepuoncau
majority for an aooeptablo Presidential
candidate, must be fought over again I
in .November to assure her electoral
voto for Blaine. It assures Indiana to
Cleveland without a desperato strug-
gle, and it is notice that Illinois, Mich-
igan and Wisconsin must be contested
as at least remotely doubtful States. It
is notico to tho leaders of tho Plumed
Knight that his battle henceforth is
against fearful gale and tldo ; that just
when he and his resources aro exhaust
ed, tho Cloveland leaders tako the field
with fresh resources and growing pop
ular sentiment in their favor. We be
lieve, therefore, that Blaino is beaten.
West Virginia was regarded bv
Blaino as a hopeful Stato when he en
tered upon his campaign of desnera
tiou in Ohio. The Republican Green
back lusion lias been perfected there
under tho immediato inspiration of
Blaine nnd tho immediate lend of El-
kins., Tho battlo was opened with the
regular Blaino flourish of trumpets and
tho regulation extravagant claims of
organs. Tho narrow Democratio mar

lavish expenditure nnd a humming
campaign. Blaino opened tho canvass

was leit undone or unproraisbd or uu

the South. But West Virginia has

Garfield obtained a plurality in Ohio

Wheeling, October 21,
An exciting contest is taking place
in tho Third district over returns from
tho recent election. E. W. Wilson,
tho Governor-elect, is uow in Fayette
county nud, with District Attorney
'It. Clair, is engaged in bunting down
the fraud, which is apparent on its
face. Fayctto county returned 2,700
lltheablo in August for taxation nnd
jut unit 3,100 voles last week. Upon
investigation It was found that several
oar-loads of nt-grocs had been brought
In by thu Chesapeake and Ohio I toad
nnd actually voted by the oar load ut
several places, and it transpires thnt
thu Commissioners of Election at those
precinotB wero not sworn in until after
the Polls closed.
There nro a gieat many negioes at
work In tho mines between Coal Val
ley and Quinnemont, most of whom
were brought there by Eastern Repub
lican contractors to supplant white in
bor al reduced rates, ami these strange
negroes wero difficult to recognize.
Two car loads of them were taken
East after dark on election night.
A dispatch from tlio investigators
says that tho fraud is the boldest ever
practiced in this Stato and will result
in throwing out that precinct. This is
not in tlio interest ot any candidate, as
tho entire Doniocrntio ticket is elected,
nud it has created great oxcitemeut iu
tho Coal Valley.
Additiohal official returns received

Ai.iiany, October 20.
Albany has had a genuiuo sensation
to-day. Governor Cleveland was at
tacked on the street this morning by a
man named Samuel Boone of Elmira.
The Governor was not injured, but tho
assault has been tho tnlk of tho town.
Boone, whoso wifo has not recovered
imagined that certain bruises on her
arms had been caused by Governor
Cleveland and to day liu Btimmoncd up
cournge lo tako revenge. Governor
Cleveland left tho Executive Mansion
ibout 9:30 aud started for tho Capitol.
When lie reached tho Medical College,
on Eaglo Street, Boono rushed upon
hira and shouting, 'ion havo killed my
wife," struck the Governor several
blows. Tho Governor was unprepared
for tho attack, but hu struck out right
and left aud defended himself. Then
Dr. George II. Houghton appeared on
the scene. Iloonc darted over to the
street, picked up n cobblestone and was
about to hurl it nt tlio Governor when
Dr. Houghton grabbed his arm.
After the first blow Cleveland stag-
gored up against a tree and then re
sumed his walk. Boone was handed
over to tin- police nnd locked up. The
Governor made light of iho assamt.
He said that hu could havo handled
three such fellows as the one who n-t-saulted
him and he entered his ofliee
iu a veiy unconcerned manner. Wheu
the report ol thu assault gained cm
reiioyit was apprehended that a murdor
om attack hail been made. Dining the
morning the Governar received many
callers, who congratulated him on his
narrow escape from an occurrence which
might have resulted seriously

It has come to the knowledge of The
Toil that tho Democratic State Com
mittee is without funds to prosecntu its
legitimate operations, and tho financial
aid which it had every right to oxpect
is not extended to it.
Under theso circumstances The
Post proposes to take its 25,000 sub
scribers and 100.000 renders into its
confidence and to mako an appeal not
more to their generosity than to tneir
sense of justice.
It has started and proposes to keeii
up a dollar subscription fund for tho
benefit of the Democratio Slate Com
mitteo. It asks a dollar no moro, no
loss from every ono who reads this
appcat for tho purposes stated ; and it
will not be satisfied until 5,000 have
been raised bv this means.
It will print weekly thu names of all
who respond, and it will turn over the
daily receipts from this Bourco to the
committee, to defray its bills for pos
tage, printing nnd other necessary ex
penses of the campaign.
Remittances may be sent by money
order, postal note, check, postage
stamps or in currency.
Blanks for subscriptions will bo fur
nished upon application to all who may
desire to enlist others in tho enterprise.
Those whb are willing to subscribe
sums oxceeding one dollar may do ho
in the names ot trienuds or members
of their family. Tho published lists
will be a roll of honor.
Iu Lancaster nud nt tho rooms of the
Stato Committee, books for tho dollar
subscription were opened last week,
At every post office iu the State, in ov

Gloves arc peculiar. Thero
is no sort of goods in which
it is easier to go astray ; none
in which the utmost rigor in
adherence to standards is
more necessary. There arc
good gloves lor economical
people, good gloves for ex
travagant people, good gloves
for people between, and a
great variety for them all.,
There are also many sorts of
good-looking gloves for all
sorts of people. The good
of all sorts we keep. The
merely good-looking we do'
not keep. We draw the line
sharply between the good
and the not good. But there
are degrees of goodness ; and
we keep several.
To be short : Good-looking
gloves arc of all degrees
of goodness ; and we sharply
rufe out those below a fair,
standard of honesty. Have
you noticed that we almost
never advertise gloves below
value? The reason is We
can't get honest gloves below
value, except by rare ac
cident. Nobody can.
Let us now print once for
all our standing news about
gloves ; for it doesn't change
much. We have about every
thing that belongs to an hon
est trade in fall and winter
gloves. Our prices are fair.
They often seem high to peo
ple who believe advertise
ments and shop tales without
discrimination. They are not
high. They cannot be low.
What sort of guarantee of
gloves ? Just the same as. of
almost everything else that
I3ut that isn't enough.
Gloves are peculiar. People
do not often become dissatis
fied with the worst of them
till they have injured them.
The guarantee, Bring back
the gloves uninjured and get
your money back, isn't
enough. It doesn't secure
against the worst abuse in the
trade, viz., the sellingof gloves
that are only good-looking foi
But a guarantee going fur
ther and protecting the buy
cragainst defects thatdevelop
only by wear is liable to se
rious abuse. Some people,
would strain it beyond all rea
son. It isn't as if we had only
fair and reasonable people to
deal with. There are those
who would wear a new pair
of gloves till a little soiled,
and then tear them on pur
pose to get a new pair for
nothing. Our guarantee has
got to be such as to protect
us against these one-sided
Just as we said the othei
day of shoes, we do not agree
to do more than is reasonably
safe and just. We have to
remember that half the shoes
and gloves are worn by peo
ple who show very little wit
in the choice they make of
them or in the use they put
them to. We are not going
to bear the cost of their ignor
ance or folly.
What do we do, when the
buyer complains and the
glovt'sare spoiled? Remem
ber the answer. We straiglit
way consider which of sthe
hire, maker, merchant, or
spui.'cr, ought to bear the loss;
and we ;. where it belongs,
if we can.
We began about glove:,.
Really the facts about dealing
in gloves and shoes are so
alike with respect to what we
keep, how we sell, and what
we do in case of dissatisfaction
after injury is done, that wt:
might have put gloves and
shoes together all through.
., Thereis more in this subject
than how we gather and sell
our gloves and shoes. They
are difficult goods to guar
antee satisfaction with. How
we treat them is a clear indi
cation of how we administer
our guarantee all over the
stqre. What if we sneaked
out of every doubtful obliga
tion ? What if we interpreted
every underslanding in the
most favorable light to our
selves? What if, on the other
hand, beyond our absolute
guarantee of .ilmost every
thing we sell, we study to find
how many of ihe losses incurred
by people who trust us we can
properly shield them froin,ho;
many we can properly laL
upon ourselves,or put upon out
source of supply? Let out
dealing in gloves and shoei ,
then, stand for our gene.iv.1
policy in trade.
If we try to administer so
generous a policy in go.l
faith, are we not entitled to -i
degree of indulgence for in
evitable shortcomings be
yond what is usual in trade ?
