LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER. FRIDAY; SEPTEMBER 3, 1880.

FRIDAY EVENING, SEPT. 3, 1880.
A Dangerous Friend.
General Grant lias written from Colo Cole
rado under date of August twelfth, te
his henchman, Jehn A. Legan, te tell
him that he is coming East in the latter
part of this month, and that " he will
gladly attend any meeting intended te
further the success of Garfield and Ar
thur."., lie concludes with the following
remarkable declaration :
" I agree with you that it will net de te
be beaten new. Wc should never be beaten
until every man who counts or represents
these who count in the enumeration te
give representation in the electoral college,
can cast his vote just as he pleases and can
have it counted just as he cast it."
That is a very true statement, but a
very.strange one te come from General
Grant if he is the friend of Garfield and
Arthur that lie claims te be. "We have
read the language he uses with a steady
endeavor te understand it, and we take
it te be a very clear announcement that
the party General Grant belongs te,which
lie says is the party of Garfield andArthur,
" should net be lieaten until every man"
" can cast his vote just as he pleases and
can have it counted just as he cast it."
If it does net say this it says nothing; and
with tliis statement we agree. It is just
what we have been saying te Mr. Legan
and his political friends for a long time.
The Republican party has lived as long
as it has, just liecau.se of the ability of
its managers te prevent the decision of
elections by an honest count of every
vote cast. Everybody knows this, and
the men who have done it de net deny
their work while they enjoy its fruit.
Frankness in the declaration of their in
iquity is quilcaremarkablc feature in the
character of many of the managing He
publican politicians. This lias been es
pecially conspicuous in this state where
this breed of dogs has biien produced el
tlie highest quality. There was Mackey,
who charmed while he shocked the pee
ple he talked te with the ejicnuess of his
avowals of corrupt methods of work
He made no secret of the fact that he
worked upon the one idea thateveryman
was te be bought, and that the sole
question in considering the possibility of
any scheme was the prevision of sufli
cient money. Keinble, when he followed
after Mackey, attempted te wear his man
tle and imitated his sincerity; but it
failed te work with him and he has gene
out into utter darkness.
Gen. Grant, in coming along with his
frank avowal that the Kepublican parly
should never lese power until itlesesits
ability te manipulate the people's ballets,
imitates the examples of these distin
guished leaders ; but we confess that wc
de net see what he expects te gain by
such a publication if his party's game
and the ground of its hope. It is bold
but surely net wise. We doubt whether
the general will be welcomed by his fel
low Republication his coming trip East,
at "any meeting intended te further the
successor the ticket headed by Garfield
and Arthur." His talk is tee free and
his avowals tee frank te make him use
ful at such meetings. It will be very
pleasant te hear him say that it will net
de te be beaten ; but the temper of the
people is net such as te make it safe te
say that a free ballet and a fair count
must be prevented te save the Kepubli
can party from defeat. "We expect that
the general will be asked te tarry awhile
in Colerado; in that wilderness it may de(

The Philadelphia Times expresses sur
prise that a journal like the Pem Month
ly, represented by its publishers as " a
magazine for thoughtful readers," should
get down te the low grade of party false
hood en .which the disreputable organs
run and repeat the stalest and flimsiest
lies about the census in Southern states.

Republican documents franked " R.
Cenklin" and " G. G. Bline " are passing
through the mails quite vigorously, the
forgeries being a very naked pretense for
the signatures of Senators Rescoe Conk Cenk

Hayes is away from home the interests of
civil service reform must be expected te
suffer in his absence.
"We have," says the Londen Spectator,
" expended twenty millions and have lest
hundreds of valuable lives in the endeavor

stead of Shcre Ali."
Gen. Banks, who signed the report
branding Garfield as a perjurer, and Robe
son, who escaped trial for malfeasance in
office only by the statute of limitations,
spoke en the same platform for Garfield
and Arthur at Jersey City, Tuesday even
ing. It has been held by the courts that a
hotel keeper is net liable for the less of a
hat that was hung en a rack while the
owner was at dinner. The property must
come into the actual possession of the pro

he be hotel keeper or barber, before he be
comes liable for any less.
Mr James II. Hepkins, the Democratic
candidate for Congress in the Pittsburgh
district, has challenged Congressman Er-
rctt, the Republican candidate, te a joint
discussion of the issues of the day. Mr
Errctt has decided that he cannot accept

A letter is printed from General Gar
field in reply te seme inquiries as te
whether he would net, if elected, "recom
mend legislation for the suppression of the
importation, manufacture and sale of in
toxicating liquors as beverages in the Dis
trict of Columbia and the tci riteries."
Garfield's reply is truly remarkable. He
says : "I hope you will recognize the pre
priety el my declining te answer your
question, and the impropriety of my mak
ing any statement te any person that I
will de any particular thing in case I am
elected." The general doesn't like te
hurt anybody's feelings.
Twe of General Garfield's competitors
for the presidential nomination seem te be
unable te restrain covert attacks. In a
brief report of Secretary Sherman's speech
at Washington, he is represented as saying
that General Garfield was an honest gen -cral,
while the mere important tribute that
he was an honest man was adroitly with
held. Senater Blaine has been making a
stirring speech en the tariff, in which the
worst of all frce trade offences is describ

At the battle of Yorktown the clergy
were present in large force, and all their
intellectual and rhetorical powers were
called into service the first Sabbath after
the surrender. The finest effort new en
record was that of Israel Evans. He had
been a chaplain from the first and fought
in nearly every great battle of the war.
At Yorktown, as he steed near Washing
ton, a cannon-ball struck at his feet and
showered him with mud. Without mev
ing a step, he took off his hat te examine
its condition. Washington advised him
te take it home, te show his wife and
children. After the surrender he preached
te the assembled army from ' Net unto
us, O Lord, net unto us, but unto thy
name give glory for thy incrcy and for thy
truth's sake. Wherefore should the
heathen say, Where is new their Ged?
But our Ged is in the heavens. He hath

Reports from the best informed sources
in Indiana relieve the anxiety that has
been felt here in regard te the vote of that
state in October. Little if any doubt is
entertained that the Democrats' will clcc
their governor by a decided majority,
which will be doubled for Hancock. This
confidence is inspired mainly by the able,
efficient, comprehensive and discreet man
agement of the campaign by Mr. English,
who, in his quality of chairman of the
state committee and of candidate for vice
president, has a double responsibility te
He is an organizer of the first order, be
ing cool, sagacious, vigilant, and prepared
at all points. He has methodized the can
vass as an intelligent merchant would de
his business. Instead of begging for help
outside the state, and carrying round a
hat, after the old fashion, he has put his
own shoulder vigorously te the wheel, and
he relics upon the Democrats of Indiana
te take care that there shall be no default,
and that the vote of 187C shall be reaf
firmed by an emphatic expression against
the Fraud. ,
But for the energy and the capabilities
of Mr. English, as the directing mind, and
the pivot upon which the organization
turns, there might be misgiving and dis
trust of the result, from the uncommon
dibits and the immense expenditure of
money en the part of the Republicans,
who have Heeded the state with campaign
fabrications, and have imported some four
thousand negrees te illustrate the purity
of the elective franchise. They have done
worse things than cither of these schemes,
which Mr. Marshall Jewell and his confed
erates will find out in geed time arc well
known, and will be counteracted.
While committees at Washington and
elsewhere have been blowing their trum
pets about the prospect, and getting them
selves gazetted and puffed for doing next
te nothing, Mr. English has silently pur
sued his way, and encouraged everybody
near him with the conviction that his way
is the sine read te success. He will ewe

te appropriate the honors, for which Ihcy
contributed but little labor. The plain

duty or in devotion when se much is at
With Indiana secured the presidential
contest would be reduced te narrow limits,
and Hancock's election, from that day
forward, might be regarded as a reason
able certainty. The effect of a positive vic
tory there would be felt in every close
state, and would at once capture the large
floating vote, which is always en the look
out for a comfortable place with the ma
jority, no matter what its political com
plexion may be.
Pennsylvania and Illinois are both pro
nounced Republican states in ordinary
times. But there is a strong leaning te
Hancock in each of them, which has broken
through party lines and threatens a seri
ous revolt. If Indiana should lead the way
gallantly, as is new fully expected, Cam Cam
eeon and Legan will find their hands mere
than full te prevent a stampede, which
would leave them powerless and in the
fellowship of kindred demagogues, whom
the pcople arc likely te consign te enforced
exile from public life.

Taste ler O a t-doer Sports.
An almost extravagant fondness for out out out
deer sports is a national characteristic of
our English cousins, both of the sterner
and the gentler sex. The beneficial re
sults arc seen in their robust strength and
"staying" powers, their bright eyes and
rosy faces. As a rule the English arc a
healthy, vigorous race, capable of enor
mous expenditure of physical strength and
possessing a fund of energy and self-reliance
upon which they arc able te make
almost unlimited draughts. Their experi
ence for centuries proves that a taste for
athletic sports is one of the best inheritances
that can be transmitted in a nation from
father te son, and it is therefore especially
gratifying te note the marked growth in the
popularity of out-deer exercises among our
selves. During the past ten years the taste
for the dificrent open-air spoils has in
creased with great rapidity in every part
of the country. Baseball net only shows
no signs of waning, but is if anything
mere popular than ever. Cricket is gain
ing ground in the Eastern states, while
rowing has everywhere developed amaz
ingly in popularity. Bicycle riding is also
destined te have iuashert time alargc circle
of devotees, while in-deer gymnastics, as
well as athletic competitions in the open air
swimming, walking, running and many
miner forms of physical exercise,
have each their special advocates and fol
lowers. The colleges, where young men
arc thrown together in large bodies and
where special facilities for practice arc af
forded, have naturally been the nurseries
of the athletic spirit, and must continue te
be se. At seme of them the cllert has
been made by the authorities te curb if net
te break down the new tcndcncy,Jwhich
they accuse of being detrimental te the
pursuit of knowledge. Undoubtedly,
when carried te an extreme, the taste for
athletic exercises beceme injurious,but the
fact should net be overlooked that the
country needs healthy as well as intelligent
men and that the youth who gees into the
world strong in body as well as fairly in
formed is doubly armed for the struggle for
existence. The young women, tee, arcreap
ing great advantages from the new order
of tilings. Lawn-tennis, walking, riding and
ether forms of cxercise are as popular new
among the girls as a fashiouable languor
was some years age. The great reproach
of American women in the past has been
that they are tee delicate, tee ailing, tee
weak, te meet the exacting demands of
wifehood and motherhood. Their loveli
ness has been conceded en all hands, but
in tee many cases it has been the loveli
ness of the fragile, drooping flower. New
all this is being changed. At the seaside
women are often better swimmers than
the men, the result of constant and intell
igent practice at the swimming schools.
At the country and mountain resorts the
average young lady thinks nothing of a
five or even tcn-mile tramp ever the rough
est paths. In the Catskills or the Adiron Adiren
dacks, for instance, it is a common thing
te sec troops of yeuug ladies in their trim
walking-dresses and square-sole shoes
climbing the most precipitate mountain
sides quite as nimbly as their male escorts.
All this cannot but be beneficial te the
young people, and its favorable effect
upon the physique of the coming genera
tions of Americans must inevitably be

Speaker Samuel J. Randall, of Pennsyl
vania, called at the national Democratic
committee rooms yesterday en his way te
Albany, where he is te address a mass
meeting. On being questioned in relation
te the progress of the canvass in Pennsyl
vania he said :" I dislike te repeat what
se many ethers have said that it has be
come almost trite, but it is nevertheless a
fact that in Pennsylvania the campaign is
emphatically the people's canvass, and
the people arc se far ahead of the
political leaders that wc find it
almost impossible te supply the
demands for speakers and documents.
When Hancock was nominated I expected
that the action of the convention would
arouse great enthusiasm in our state, but
I did net expect that it would continue se
intense as it has, nor that the pcople would
go te work se energetically and schemati
cally as they have done. They have taken
the business into their own hands and are
doing the work of organization in sponta
neously formed civilian and veteran clubs
as efficiently as if each local organization
was organized as part of a preconceived
general plan with the guidance and
support of central headquarters. In the city
of Philadelphia all dissensions have abso
lutely ceased. The committee, ably presided
ever by Mr. Cassidy, has the unqualified
support, respect and allegiance of the
whole party in Philadslphia, and the pre
liminary work of the canvass has been
performed with surprising thoroughness.
As has already been explained in the New
Yerk papers, Pennsylvania laws require
all voters te be assessed for poll tax by
September 2. The assessment of this year
in Philadelphia includes many thousands
mere of Democratic voters than have ever
before appeared upon any previous list,
and the great preponderance of increase
in the total number assessed is with us.
The Republicans will no longer be able te
disfranchise Democratic voters or poll
repeaters under names of the dead. I have
great, conlidcnce that Hancock will carry
the state, especially if the Democrats win
in Indiana in October."

A Half Holiday la the Weeds.
It was a merry party that left this city
yesterday afternoon via Millersville street
ailway for the classic shades of Shenk's
weeds, that charming retreat en the banks
of the placid Concstega. They composed a
baker's dozen of ladies and gentlemen, and
an almost equal number of baskets well
stocked with previsions. Nothing was
wanting te give zest te the enjoyment un
less it were the absence of the East King
strcct'pect, who by seme malign interposi
tion "missed the car" and was compelled
te await the next one, the arrival of which
brought his smiling visage te camp.adding
renewed cheerfulness thereto. Of
course they went beating and
of course, net having brought their fishing
tackle with them, they saw bass of phe
nemenal proportions leap out of the water
as if imploring te be drawn into the beat
by the gcntle suasion of red and line. The
young limb of the law who is an authority
en piscatorial subjects, vouchsafed the in
formation that the bass is the most per
verse member of the tinny family ; that
a well ordered fishing party supplied
with all the necessary equipments
for a day's angling may sit in a beat in the
middle el a stream from the gray dawn te
the purple twilight and the chances are
about nine out of ten that net a blessed
bite will reward their perseverance ; but
let them go near the water without these
valuable accompaniments and the bass will
fairly jump into the beat in their eager
ness te be caught and cooked. The party
wcre se deeply interested in this learned
disquisition of the legal gentleman that
they did net notice their approach
te a fleck one of the young ladies
said "Heck" of savage-looking cows that
wcre indulging in the luxury of a bath,
ncath the cooling shade of the umbrageous
foliage, and in less time than it takes te
tell it the beat was in the very midst el the
furious creatures. The ladies "screamed
like Turks," and the cows fled iu tenor
up the bank. A vote of thanks was re
turned te the ladies for their assist
ance in the hour of peril. The inkslingcr,
with an air of superior wisdom after
the danger was ever tried te get in
his opinion that there had been
no danger at all, that the cow is the most
inellensive of animals, but he was prompt
ly ruled out of order in his base attempt
te derogate the ladies' bravery. The table
was attractively spread and abundantly
provided with geed things. It was
discovered that the party was compescd'of
an unlucky number for sitting at tabic.
This appaling disclosure occasioned sur
prising celerity en the part of the legal
luminary in securing a position at the fes-
tive beard wtionce he could net be ousted
by subsequent arrangements. The dry
goods clerk was net behind in this laudable
ambition; the poet, as poet go, didn't
have much appetite and kindly offered te
wait for second table, and was joined by
two fair companions. He presided with
rare grace ever the lcmonade department.
In the gleaming the party started for
the village whence the cars brought them
te town. A vote taken en the presidential
question resulted as fellows : Hancock 13,
Garfield 0. This is a straw, and was greeted
with wild enthusiasm. Lancaster was
reached shortly after 8 o'clock, aud never
was merrier party better pleased with a
half holiday in the weeds.
