"I don't believe the delegation will dis
grace itself and the state. I don't believe
my son, for one, will disobey his instruc
tions. He is an honest man, you knew,"
added the old gentleman with a fine twin
kle. " He's the son of his father."
"By net 'disgiaciug itself I suppose
you mean that the state delegation will
stand by the unit rule and cast its vote
for General Grant?"
" That is it, precisely."
"Cm tin's history is peculiar. His father,
a young Catholic, who had mere than half
an intention te become a priest, came ecr
fiem Iteland and m: !c his appearance in
Centte county. Pa., about 1820. He fell
in with a lovely young lady, daughter of
Andicw Gregg, of Woodbine, a congress
man ler some twenty years, who had
served one term as senator. Her family
were Presbyterians. He turned Presby-
teiian, tee, and married her. Many years
afterwards, when the Knew-Nothing ex
citement arose, his son, the recent gover
nor, defending the ' American ' pat ty in
his speeches, was able te illustrate the
untrustworthiness of Iiish Catholics, es
pecially by telling hew his own father,
when en his deathbed, renounced the
Picsbyterian faith he had temporarily
chosen, and summoned a Reman Catholic
piiest te listen te his last confession ! Cur
tin get en as well and as fast as any lea lea
senable man could wish te in the state.
Sheitly before the war broke out he came
te me and said he would like te be gover
nor. I helped him te the nomination.
Subsequently he called again and said,
"New you have nominated me I want you
te furnish the money and secure my elec
tion." I was willing te help him in this
way also, but theie were reasons why 1
did net wish te seem te de it directly. Se
I sent him te my son, who, I mulct steed,
lent hiin some 15,000. He may have te
paid the money ; I don't knew. It was a
transaction into which I haven't inquired.
I merely knew that the large landed estate
lelt by his father was meitgaged, and that
from that time he turned and became an
" Was the change se sudden then :"
" It began bcfeie he had fairly wanned
his cushion at the state house. Then en
sued the part net ship between Cintin and
his fi ieiuls, which for awhile divided the
party counsels and seemed te premise the
conspirateis a permanent shaie of inllu
cnee hi the state. Nene of them weie well
eiF, financially. The clothing business, or
what was known in these days as the sale
of shoddy, piescnted a fine prospect, and
opetatiens of that kind, cat ried en by the
governor's friends in Philadelphia, weie
all the mere successful because of the ex ex
pesuicsaud denunciations of similar deal
ings by ether parties, which they kept up
te hide their own transactions. Frem
that peiied I became convinced that Cm tin
was never te be ti listed, and when Piesi
dent Giant decided te send him abroad he
did se entiiely against my judgment. I
told the president he would be suie te be
tray him. Sine enough, when the Liberal
movement attained its height, Curtin,
abandoning his pest in Russia, came home,
dreaming of an exaltation tee mighty for
his wits. Though the Liberal-Democratic
league igneied his own aspiration for the
nomination at Cincinnati he didn't hesitate
for that te turn en Grant as he has turned
en me, and suppeitMr. Gieeley against the
man who had se lately lifted him out of
thicatened political ebscuiity. AVliat did
he gain by this fugacious performance? or,
rather, what did he lese ? As Fex said, I
'quote fiem the commencement.' He has
lest all authority te dictate, all influence te
sway. He has buiied himself out of sight,
and out of the thoughts of these who arc
at present concerned with the action of the
state Republican delegation."
" Amciicans aie net feels. The attempt te
make Geerge Washington stand as a pie
cedeut for the ptinciplc of no thiid teim is
lidiculeus. Any one who carefully leads
our eaily history may see that Washington
would have willingly accepted a thud
nomination if he could have kept Jeffersen
out of the field. Resides the case of Gen.
Giant don't involve a piopesitiou for tluee
consecutive picsidcnti.il teims, which
Washington, but for the snag in his way,
might have enjoyed. Giant has been out
of ellice ever since his second term cxpit ed
and I was the author of the very resolu
tions adopted in 1870 which would ha e
made his rcnominatieu impossible at that
time even if he had been a candidate !
These weie bona fide anti-thud term icso icse icso
lutiens, declating as they did, against
thiee stiaight holdings of the presidency
by any man."
"Why net another term of Giant then
as well as new ?"
'I'l tin llLflllnlifiii L lv. .....1 A.. ., lift
Having held the ellice for two terms, eight
years in succession, it was time for General
Grant as, in my judgment, it would have
been for whatever incumbent te give way
te another. It was impossible that, if con
tinued in it longer, he would get tee used
te the place. Carelessness, procrastina
tion, airegancc, or ether evils,might mani
fest themselves at se lefty a place held tee
long by the consent (and, perhaps, appar
ently te the occupant, by the constant de
sire) of the people. It might seem as if
the people were helpless te chose a substi
tute. The idea might get into the incum
bent's head thet he was next te indispen
sable. Anyway, I thought it best that
General Grant should have at least four
yeais vacation. If he should rightly be
have himself and occasion should rise in
the futuic for his return te the presidency,
I sec no reason then, as I sec no reason
new, te prescribe him from the list of can
didates. It appear te me that the strong
est possible occasieu has arisen for his re
nomination and re-election, and that his
experience since he quitted the White
Heuse in 1877 has specially qualified him
te re-enter it."
"But, again, hew about his mere po
litical utility as a candidate? De you
really think him the strongest, the most
papular Republican te te voted femt Chi
" He is the one Republican candidate
who, if nominated, would ceitainly be
elected. . I haven't a doubt of his popular
ity with the voters. He is emphatically
the people's man, and all the hue and cry
against 'Grantism 'and the 'thiid term'
raised by the fiiends of ether candidates
don't deceive the people for a day."
"It's astonishing hew many men imagine
themselves te be astute politicians nowa
days, and have taken te soothsaying ac
cordingly. There is a plenty of intelligent
Republicans in Pennsylvania, as you have
just said, who think of nothing, dream of
nothing, but te ' beat Grant.' There is
my son-in-law, Mr. Wayne MacVeagh,
lawjer, but no politician at all. He was
up heie the ether day from Philadelphia
and spoke of going te Chicago. I told
him he'd better stay at home and earn
money for his family instead of wasting it
en such an errand."
"Speaking of MacYcagh," said the
general, alter a pause, with another fine
twinkle in his eyes, "a curious thing
eccuried net long age, which I shouldn't
allude te if it had net involved a compli
ment te him. Mr. Evatts wished te eiler
him the mission te Russia, but wanted my
son, the present senator, te ask for the
appointment for him. This, of course.
Den didn't feel at liberty te de. The
Pennsylvania delegation fn Congress being
consulted, unanimously suggested me for
" Would you have cared te take it?"
"Surely net. I had had all the glory
and all the misciv of ixeinir abroad as
minister belbie. The pest elleied no new
oppeitunities ; and I always suffer se
much fiem railway travel, te say nothing
of pangs en shipboard, that nothing could
have induced me te undirtake the voyage
"I should think that te be a place which
Mr. MauYc.igh would fill with entire
"Vciy likely. Men like MacVeagh,
though, had better leave home politics te
these who undeistand them. Pennsylva
nia's pait in this ear's campaign (includ
ing the pait her delegates aie te take in
the nominating convention at Chicago) is
under honest and faithful guidance, and
will duly benefit and sustain the power
and dignity of the commonwealth."
" Yet tell mi', gcneial, at last, whether
in the possible (we will net say the piob pieb
ablc) event of Grant's inexpediency as a
candidate, theie will, in your judgment,
still be a united Pennsylvania delega
" I am supposing the weist thing that
could happen that the delegates who new
say they will net vote for Giant are joined
by a majeiity by the time the national
convention meets a majeiity arrayed
against the judgment of your son ."
" They will find themselves enlightened
at the convention itself."
" Rut a majeiity liile.s, and (unitiule or
no unit mle) would pievail in the conven
tion. Aceeiding te the agicement at Har
lislmig it would carry the delegation along
with it. Who would be the delegation's
nczt choice ? Blaine ?"
' That depends," leplied General Cani Cani
eten, iinpiessively, "entiiely upon Mr.
Blaine and his fiiends ! At picsent he is
undoubtedly very popular in many parts of
the state, and would be the second choice
of our pjeple as of the delegates. If the
latter sue left te act without intiigue or
coetcien they will uatuially gravitate al
most in a body towards Mr. Blaine in the
event you aie supposing of General Grant's
failmc in the convention. But let there
be any attempt te gag or ethci wise inter
fere with the autonomy and independence
of the Pennsylvania delegation, and the
ambition of the man who instigates such
an attempt will be lesisted te the last ex
tremity." " Ne eidinary eausc can be assigned for
such behavior en the pai t of men j rjfessing
te be Mr. AVashburne's fiiends. Ne one,
looking the fa -ts straight in the face, ciu
icsist the conclusion that some strange in
fluence was hi ought te bear upon these
delegates. Their behavior, legardingthem
as friends of Mr. Washburne, seeking his
true interest, was dimply unnatural. Heic
was he, a devoted friend of General Grant,
and here weie his alleged delegates acting
as General Grant's devoted enemies. It's
unfortunate that the p.utisaus of Mr.
Blaine should let it be supposed that a dis
graceful intiiiiue was somehow at the bot
tom of this mystery. Thcic'a the tiouble
with Blaine," exclaimed General Cameren,
impatiently. "I like him ; he is a man of
force and genius. But somehow I have
always felt that if we went into the can
vass with him at the head of the ticket we
should be hampeicd by the necessity of
making constant explanations. Yet there
is no denying his popularity, and if Grant
were out of the field, I should certainly
and cordially support Mr. Blaine in the
first place, because I have a great respect
for public opinion."
Desciibed bj One "Who is Dragged at Its
Geerge William Curti&'s New Yeik Addie -,
it is title th.it paity action becomes im
possible if every member insists upon hav
ing his own way ; there must be, undoubt
edly, general concession and sacrifice, of
mcie personal piefeicnee. but every mem
ber must also decide for himself hew far
this may go and wheie it must end. Ne
member has a right te appeal te another
te stand by the pai ty who docs net de
what he can te make the pai ty worth
standing by. A puty is made efficient
only through men. It is nccess-arily judged
by itseandidate, and if the members sup
port unworthy candidates te-day, for the
sake of the pai ty, they make it all the
easier te suppeit umveithier candidates
te-morrow. If I agree te vote for Jeremy
Diddler te-day, because lie is the regularly
selected standaid-bearcr of the grand old
paity of honesty and reform, I cannot re-
luse te vote ler Benedict Arneld te-morrow
because he is the standard-bearer of
the grand old ptuty of independence and
patuetic glory. If the reply be that no
body pretends that wc ought te vote for
candidates of bad character, I answer that
a candidate who for any reason justly dis
credits the party and thereby itnpeiils its
success, and consequently its objects, is,
from the party point of view, an unfit man,
and fidelity te the party demands the re
jectien of the candidate.
A system is rapidly developing itseli
which usuips the political initiative, the
vital point of popular government, and
which rules in the name of the party, as
the meanest king was said te mle by the
grace of Ged. This system is known as
the machine. The machine is an oligar
chy, a combination, a ling or clique of pro
fessional politicians, of men who live by
the emoluments of official place. No
where is the machine mere powerful and
complete than in the state of New Yerk,
and its character and methods can be most
readily studied here and new, when a na
tional election is at hand. In a popular
government an election is an appeal te the
people, in tins country, under our com
plicated system, it is a series of events, of
which the first is the action of the primary
meeting. And that first action is decisive.
Our government begins at the primary,
and whoever or whatever controls that
controls the government. That is the
fountain, and if that is tainted the whole
stream will be poisoned.
The most intelligent and the most pa
triotic Republicans of the city of New
Yerk are as absolutely disfranchised in all
the most important preliminary action of
the party as the slaves were formerly dis
franchised in the Southern states. They
are permitted te vote for silch candidates
only as these may nominate who have
pledged themselves in advance te support
Judas Iscariot, if he should be able te
bribe the convention. That is the sole
choice left te the Republicans of this city
who will make no such pledge, who are
willing te profess loyalty te principles, but
net te persons, and that is the reason that
in every Republican state convention the
character and intelligence of the Republi
cans of the city are never represented, ex
cept by three or four delegates who hat e
no constituencies and who consent te try
te earn the favor of the machine by drap
ing it with their respectability. But
they are only befooled. They can
buy the machine or they can frighten
it, but they cannot conciliate it, and while
they suppose that they are placating it for
their own purposes they are as dead as
Hecter dragging at the chariot wheels of
a scornful Achilles. Meanwhile, beyond
the city, the entire power of the state
when controlled by the machine, with all
its offices and their dependencies and
emoluments, with every kind of mercenary
premise and appeal by which men in ellice
arc able te bribe and intimidate and allure,
with the money of the taxpayer and net
with their own, is brought into action
against the freedom of the voters. Having
thus by wholesale disfranchisement and
bribery of every kind secured a majority
in the state convention, the majority prin
ciple is outraged te compel the delegates
te vote as a unit in the national conven
tion, thus following the disfranchisement
of some with the gagging and muzzling of
ethers. The election that fellows is sim
ply the choice of an alternative dictated by
the perty machine.
While geed men sit at home net know
ing that there is anything te be done, nor
caring te knew, cultivating the feeling that
politics arc tiresome and dirty and politi peliti
ciilVis vulgar bullies and braves, half ier
suaded that a republic is the contemptible
i ule of a mob, and secretly longing for a
stieng man, and a splendid and vigorous
despotism, then remember it is net a gov
ernment mastered by ignorance, it is a gov
ernment betrayed by intelligence. Ap
plause. It is net the victory of the slums
it is the surrender of the schools. It is
net that bad men arc politically shrewd,
it is that geed men arc political infidels
and cew.nds. Great applause.
The challenge is fair, and I answer at
once that theie are two practicable and
perfectly effective remedies for the mon
ster evil which new threatens our politics.
One is individual and immediate. The
ether is general and radical The first,
which is immediately available, is that
with which this association is identified.
It is a short and easy method with the
machine, requiring no elaborate organiza
tion, open te every voter A method
which, if put in force by every man who
wishes te strike a blew for decent politics,
would summarily overthrew the machine
in the least time and with the smallest of
weapons, for the weapon is but a pen or
pencil, and the time is only the moment
necessary for a scratch.
But useful as scratching is as a collec
tive it docs net strike at the heart of the
machine and it is there only a ceirective
and net a radical remedy. That can be
found only by finding the senrce of the
power of the machine, and that source is
official patronage. It is the command of
millions of the public money spent in
public administration, the contiel of the
vast lahyiiuth of place, with its emolu
ments, the system which makes the whole
civil set vice te the least detail and the
most insignificant position the spoils of
paity victory. It is this system which
perverts necessary party organization into
intolerable party despotism. It is upon this
that the hierarchy of the machine is erected.
The spoilssystemcempclsevery voter in the
country either te devote his whole time te
politics, as these who live by politics de,
or te lese all practical political power
whatever. Instead, therefore, of being
essential te paity government, the spoils
systein is hostile te the very object of party
in a free government itself. In the state of
New Yerk and in the state of Pennsylva
nia this system has already se far sup
planted the American principle the fur
damental principle of liberty that the
impeitant Republican question in New
Yerk is net what does the party wish, but
what does Mr. Cenklingsay ? And in Penn
sylvania, net what is the conviction of the
paity but what does Mr. Cameion mean te
