Easy te Beat.
This premises te be a very easy presi
dential campaign. The Republican can
didates are se handicapped by their rec
ords that there is little danger of their
success; and what little new exists will
b3 removed as seen as it is certain the
Cincinnati convention has made judi
cious nominations against them. There
is no telling in advance what degree of
felly apolitical convention may be guilty
of, as the Chicago convention has just
demonstrated. Se that until the one at
Cincinnati has come and gene, it will
net de te feel certain of the defeat of
Garfield and Arthur. But surely we
need net be very fearful that the Demo
cratic delegates, with these candidates
before them, will net have wisdom
enough te oppose te them men of another
sort, whose characters will command
the country's confidence and gain its
"We really sympathize with the Repub
lican party that has been crucified in the
hour of its strength by the crazy work of
its representatives. It may be fairly ad
mitted that it had a geed chance for suc
cess with decent candidates. Even with
Grant it need net have despaired, for he
had positive elements of strength te off.
set his points of weakness. Against Har
rison, of Indiana, or Wasliburne, of Illi
nois, both strong and unassailable men,
witli elements about them appealing te
the popular heart, no Democratic nom
inee could have felt certain of success.
Against Garfield it will net be difficult
te pit a Democrat of whose success we
may feel nearly absolutely sure. The
battle is lest te the Republican army be
fore it is begun if the Democratic candi
dates are well-chosen. And we pity and
heartily sympathize with the Republican
politician who is bound te make his
fight under such discouraging circum
stances. It can net be an exciting con
test when the enthusiasm of both sides is
net aroused ; and honest enthusiasm for
such candidates as Garfield and Arthur
is net possible.
The Republican party journals wil1
stand by them with as stout hearts as
they can command and will pretest
against what they will call Democratic
calumny. They will undertake te per
suade their readers that their candidates
are virtuous and geed, and that our
charges against them are but campaign
slanders. Rut it will net de, simply be.
cause the facts are tee notorious and the
evidence te prove them tee abundant and
plain. Garfield is net supposed te have
profited as much as Blaine by the sale of
his legislative inlluence, but he has been
caught oftener and his offences can be
mere clearly proven. There was a possi
ble chance for the Republican newspapers
if Blaine had been their candidate, te
have made noise enough te persuade
their voters that their man was being
basely slandered ; but there is no such
chance for Garfield.
Seme of the Republican papers are com
plaining that there has already been in
augurated "a campaign of abuse" against
Garfield, as though the public record of
their candidate for president was net
public property. We have seen no pi r r
senal abuse of Mr. Garfield in any Dem
ocratic paper, no intrusion into his pri
vate affairs, nor any reflections upon his
private character, further than it is re
flected in the record of his public acts.
By these acts, as they are indisputably
recorded in the annals of American leg
islation, he must be expected te be
judged. His party invited such scrutiny
when they put him up. If the truth
hurts it is their fault net ours. If he
took the Credit Mebilier bribes and
lied about it he must expect te
be reminded of it. If he took a
$5,000 fee from a lobbying corporation
te help their job through Congress, it is
no unjustifiable abuse of him te spread
his disgrace before the public. It would
be better taste and better policy for the
Republicans te try te controvert these
charges than te complain of them. They
are singularly silent concerning them.
They attempt no denial, they make no
justification, they can find no escape
Mr. Colfax when asked about the preb
able effect of the Credit Mebilier busi
ness turns his back upon the question.
His party will have te de the same and
will fitly die with its heels te the fee.
Skxateii Kekxax thinks that Gar
field's nomination takes Tlmrman, Payne
and Jewett out of the list of Democratic
presidential possibilities. His very plan
sible reasoning is that the Democracy
dare net put it te the test te win or lese
it all en Ohie. Te select a candidate
from that state and pit him against Gar
field would be te invite a decisive con
test in October. The Democracy are
net compelled te de that. They can
make Ohie a doubtful state, but it is net
by any means necessary te have it te
elect the Democratic nominee. Te lese
it after such a contest as would be
shaped ever the candidacy of two
Ohie men might exert a depressing in
fluence en the Democracy elsewhere, the
risk of which issue is an unnecessary
one. Senater Kernan's head seems te be
level eji this point, though en the score
of fitness and desert, Ohie is quite as
prolific of Democratic favorite sons as
she has been productive of Republican

Hayes removed Chester A. Arthur from
it ; and Sherman certified that " gross
abuses of administration continued and
increased during his incumbency," and
" efforts te correct these abuses failed te
meet with his support."
Is this man fit te be vice president ?
The office of vice president is import
ant. Its incumbent is in perpetual ex.
pectancy. The constitutional require
ments for it are the same as these for
president, and the popular standard
should be elevated rather than lowered.
Maryland Democracy expresses a
preference for Bayard, while it sends an
uninstructed delegation te the national
convention. Georgia inclines te Field
and Indiana honors her favorite son and
instructs her delegation te aid his nom
ination with the unit rule. McDonald

Washington gossip runs thus : Blaine
was jubilant and gleefully said "the
bosses are busted ;" Matt Carpenter was
wroth, swore terrifically, " cussed " Blaine,
Sherman and Hayes, and deeply and vio
lently deplored the defeat of Grant;
Hayes rejoices ever the defeat of "Conk "Cenk
ling and the Grant ring," as he expresses
it ; Sherman feels the same way with re
gard te Garfield, but does net relish the
nomination of Arthur, having removed
the latter from the Xew Yerk collector
ship ; Little Frye's friends think that the
vice presidency should have gene te
Maine, and that it was quite unnecessary
te conciliate Mr. Cenkliug by the choice
of General Arthur ; General Sherman sent
no congratulations te Garfield and Secre
tary Key was silent. The Washington
Pest recommends as the ticket necessary
te defeat Garfield and Arthur the follow fellow follew
ing: Fer president, Horatio Seymour;
for vice president, Allen G. Thurman.

The character of Gen. Ganfield can be
judged by the following conspicuous facts :
When, in 1872, the Credit Alebillier bri
bery and corruption among members of
Congress were first expesscd, Gen. Garfield
was one among these accused. He im
mediately publishing a letter expressly
aud pessitively denying that he had any
share in it. Xext, en Jan. 14, 1873, he ap
peared before the committee of the Heuse
of Representatives, and under oath de
clared : " I never owned, received, or
agreed te receive any stock of the Credit
Mebillier, or of the Union Pacific railroad,
nor any dividend or profits arising from either
But en .Ism. 23, next following, the Hen.
Oakes Ames was examined before the
same committee, and proved by record
evidence, partly in Gen. Garfield's own
handwriting, that Gen. Garfield had had
stock in the Credit Mebilier and that he
had received dividends thereupon. Mr.
Ames also testified that Gener. 1
Garfield had visited him subsequent
te the commencement of the inves
tigation by the Heuse, and had en
deavored te induce him te swear before
the committee that money thus
paid him as dividends had been delivered
te him as a lean ; and yet at the very same
time that he had endeavored te procure
false testimony from Mr. Ames, Gen.
Garfield had called upon Ames te pay him
an additional sum of money en account of
the Credit Mebilier, claiming that the div
idends he had already received had net
been as large as they should have been.
A perjurer, and a man who attempts
te suborn perjury, is net fit te be presi
dent. One ether important feature in the his
tory of Gen. Garfield is his relation te the
Dc Golyer paving contract. One De Gol Gel
yer had made a contract with the Shep
herd ring in Washington te put down a
quantity of patent pavement. General
Garfield was chairman of the com
mittee en appropriations in the Heuse
of Representatives. In order te pay for
this patent pavement au appropriation was
needed from Congress. The sum of five
thousand dollars was paid te Gen. Gar
field en behalf of De Golyer, and appro
priations te the amount of millions of dol
lars were thereafter granted te the Wash
ington ring, the appropriation for the
De Golyer pavement being included there

behavior in church of several Indian chiefs
at Carlisle, which decorum might, he said,
be advantageously imitated by men of our
own race. He confirmed 12 Indians as
members of the church at Carlisle, where
28G young Indians arc attending the U. S.
government school. His report says that
" if the government would use the ether
military barracks in the country some
fifteen in number as Indian school like
that at Carlisle, there would be no need of
the armies new used te harry the Indians
across the plains." The chiefs present at
the confirmation afterwards said that they

of the audiences. The season has been a
remunerative ene for the companies as well
as for the owner and manager of the opera
house, the geed eutertainmeuts being
generally well patronized, though there
were some notable exceptions te this rule.
The outlook for the coming season is quite"
premising ; upwards of twenty-odd combi
nations, some of them of excellent calibre,
having been already booked for appcaranc0

A Had l'lace.
On the southeast corner of the Duke
street bridge is a rather dangerous opening.
The circumference has net been mc.-isttii-d,
but si child might csisiiy he ssilmiiU-d
through while walking ever or h mg
around the bridge and be precipitated te
the railresid track below.
We all knew that childien have bieken
limbs by falling a few feet. Whsit would
be the fate of one net smart eneu:h te
elude this trap '.' It would be interesting
te knew en whom devolves the duty f
having this repaired. The police ccitainly
de net spend much time en Duke strt ct,
nor de the judges pass along the neighbor
hood daily. They sue extremely vigilant
individuals ( the boundary line of whose
duty is net drawn sit tliecourtheii.se steps)
who would long age have ordered si repara
tion. The Isiwyeis and doctors passing
te-siud fro can be resisensibly excused. The
former can view this incautious elephautinc
dilapidation with a selfish smile, bccsuise
the spot may be the source of a fiituie
law-suit, and the latter, in case of au acci
dent, would be afforded an opportunity te
exercise their professional skill ; but, l
sill sipparcnt probabilities t'.ie victim, would
have gene te where Lsmcaster judges, law
yers, street-commissioners and policemen
may net be known.
Dusty streets and uneven crossings may
be dissigrcablc enough, yet they are net
cmctliately dangerous, but this Duke
street what-is-it should have si treat of
carpentering or masonry. A dumb-waiter
would be beneficial improvement.

cleth valise, without handle, containing
seven pairs of long woellen stockings, one
pair of knit drawers, two pairs of shots,
a pair of gaiters, a pair of slippers, si steel
teethed hair brush, a black leather drink
ing llsisk, si bottle of pomatum, a piece of
chamois, three linen cellars, two
shirt fronts, si bird eye towel,
si dark calico shirt, two neckties, and a
gilt-edged Bible, bound iu red morocco and
having si gilt clasp. On si fly leaf in the
Bible is the name of " Henry Gibbs, Man

or thirty Manchcstcrs in the United States
and several iu England, it is net known
which of them Henry Gibbs may belong
te, nor what may hsive become of him
whether his body lies at the creek, or is
safe aud sound in some one of our many
The contents of the valise are of geed
quality, but some them hstve been badly
