THE COLUMBIAN AND DEMOCRAT. BLOOMSBURG, COLUMBIA COUNTY, PA.
FHIDAY, SEPTEMBER. 14, 1888.
of New York.
KOR VICE PRESIDENT, ,
ALLEN G. THURMAN,
The republicans have been worryinc.
a great-deal because Cleveland's letter
of acceptance did not appear. Now
that they have got it; they are a great
deal mora worried. It is the work of
a statesman, and has paralyzed their
predictions of what it would be.
The election in Maino on Monday
resulted in a republican majority of
nbnnt 20.000. Four veara aco it was
19,749. To republicans are doing a
crreat amount of crowing over tho re
suit. It pleases them to be able to
hold their own in Blaine's state,
though they made herculean efforts to

were for tho bill because they saw no
otherway outot the hole intowhichthe
President had pt their brethera of the
senate by his fisheries message.
One of the most absurd lies that has
been told during the campaign is the
one that Cleveland notified the British
government that he didn't mean any
thing by his retaliation message on the
fisheries Question. A Washington cor
respondent is the author of tho report,
and his lie pleased him so well that he
still sticks to it. Nobody is deceived
by such Btuft
