LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER SATURDAY, NOVEMBER G 1880.
SATURDAY EVENING, NOV. G, 1B80.
After the Baltic.
Xew that the agony of the political
campaign is ever, will sober, thoughtful
people nay ,will the excitable and enthu
siastic leaders of practical politics calm
ly and profitably consider the vast
amount of humbug and clap-trap there
is in the present popular style of cam
paign and devise and resolve upon some
means of terminating it ? "We need net
leek bf-yond the horizon of our own com
munity te illustrate the subject suffi
ciently te justify the demand for reform.
The banners, the flags, the Uniforms,
the parades, and the wild excitement
night after night what did they cost
and what were tiiey worth ? The " poll
committees" en election day, four feur
lifths or whom were enrolled solely te
keep the votes or make the votes what
did they cost and what were they worth ?
Hew many thousands of dollars have
been spent in this ciiy. hew many
hundreds of thousands in this state,
-and hew many millions in the country,
during this campaign, te keep up this
delirious excitement, this popular de
moralization and debauchery ! What
liave we left for it but the charred sticks
of spent fireworks !
The campaign is ever, the voting is
done, people are settling down te their
ordinary pursuits, but it has left behind
it momentous questions which may prop
erly engage fnesidc discussion. The
dry ret of our political system is creep
ing through every community. Its
poison is being diffused through our so
cial life. The reform is casj. Will the
better men of a!! parlies unite te effect
i reference te the table of complete
ttleclien returns, which we print, it will
be seen that the total vote polled in this
ceuntv for presidential electors was "50,
:U, by far the largest ever polled and in
dicating the. most strenuous efforts by
both parties te cast their utmost strength,
each of the leading organizations show
ing an increased vote of nearly 1-per
cent, ever thai polled for president, in
187'i. The combined Temperance and
Greenback vole is searceh one-third of
one per cent, of the whole. Our private
additions make the Republican majority
S,0!s-2 less than that obtained by the
footings of the clerks.
Fer district attorney it will be seen
that the lejal vote polled is only il.s,.",12,
or l..v:: less than the vote for presiden
tial elect eis, indicating that there are
thai number of Republicans in thecoun theceun
ty who were willing te ' cut" Davis,
ami yet who could net rise te the height
of voting for his opponent. The -!('.!!
votes by which .lames Black, esq., for
district attorney led the Temperance
electors, may b -.et down in the same
category. Thee make " 1-1 Republican
votes hat protested only half way
against Davis. Had they tee been cast
for MeMullen. his mitmrit would have
been reduced te 1.1M.
These figures prove very plainly that
only the fact of its being a presidential
year saved Davis from defeat. Had it
been otherwise tiiau a campaign in
which the politicians feared the effect
en the general canvass the cutting would
have been deeper and mere effective and
-Mr. MeM alien would have been elected.
TiiK majority ler Garlicld in New
Yerk is no! nearly .se large in proportion
as was the majority for Tilden in Louisi
ana four years age. The allegations of
fraud in Louisiana four years age were
net. nearly se specilie nor se well sub
stantiated a- the evidences of fraud in
Xew 'fork new. The Republicans then
had one heu-.e of Congress te witness
the counting of I he vole. The Demo
crats new have both houses of Congress
te count the vote, te reject such states
as they see til. and te declare such result
as they may find the circumstances of
the ea.-' te warrant under constitutional
forms and according te Republican pre
cedents. If Mr. I'ainum should come
te Philadelphia and select Wm. Mc
Mullm and Samuel Josephs te go ever
te New Yerk te supervise the count of
the voles, te make affidavits for Demo
cratic witnesses, as Garfield made them
for Republican witnesses in Xew Or
leans, and in general te frame tiie Demo
cratic case, we have no doubt they could
get up a much better one for Hancock
than" Garfield did for Tilden. If Congress
should then constitute Messrs. McMuHiii
and Josephs a high commission te adju
dicate their case, in all human probabil
ity they would decide the presidential
contest in favor of Hancock. llew
would the Republicans like te have corn
measured te them in their own bushel ?
Hew would Mr. Garfield like te be heist
with his memorable petard of 1S70 77 ?
A w kitki: m the Pittsburgh Pest re
calls, in a circumstantial narrative, the
exciting events of four years age, when,

Philadelphia, whose editor is one of
Garfield's closest friends, announces
that the succession in 1884 is by no
means premised, much less secured, te
Grant, and that the candidate of 18S0 is
likely te le thecandidate of 1SH4. This
is likely. All the mere se ir Garfield
gave Conkling, Cameren and Legan rea

these Ohie ieeple have. After Cameren

The Vermont Congregationalists re
cently had a memorial presented te the
Legislature of that state requesting the
passage of a law prohibiting the desecra
tion of the Sabbath and the disturbance of
church congregations by the running of
railroad trains en Sunday. The constitu
tion of Vermont recognizes the Christian
Sabbath in the third article of the Bill of
Rights, which declares that every sect
or denomination of Christians ought te ob
serve the Sabbath or Lord's day." The
statutes of Vermont from an early day
hare forbidden travel and secular labor en
Sunday, with the customary exceptions of
works of necessity or charity.
The defeat of Mr. Chittenden in the
Brooklyn congressional district, and the
election of Rev. J. Hyatt Smith, his Green
back Democratic competitor, is described
as one of the ludicrous surprises of the cam
paign. Tlie district is strongly Republican,
and the EcminPest says : " Mr. Smith's
candidacy was supposed te be a huge prac
tical joke. Se far as wc have been able te
ascertain, the platform of the Rev. J.
nyatt Smith consists of a single plank:
the prevention of the manufacture of hats
in the state prisons of Xew Yerk. The
support of Uiis measure and the publica
tion of a Baptist open communion'
novel comprise, we believe, all of the
secular activities of Mr. Smith."
Giieex MerxT, the well-known Balti

heiress was a daughter, a beautiful girl of

and station, of whom her father disap
proved, as he had ether views for Ills only
child. They met clandestinely, and the
father gave orders te his keepers te sheet
any one found in the grounds after night.
Disguised in man's clothing she attempted
te keep an appointment with her lever,
and was shot dead by a watcher. The
Oliver vault is in the grounds which wcie
deeded te the city for a cemetery by Oli

Was Daniel Webster u Unitarian?
Mr. Jeseph Cook having written that
Daniel "Webster was net a Unitarian, a
rather lively discussion lias arisen en that
interesting point, and Dr. S. K. Lithrep
writes te the Rev. "W. C. "Wcndte, of Cin
cinnati en the subject. He says: "As
Mr. Cook knows everything, 1 suppose
he knows this, else he would net venture
te make such a bold, strong, positive,
unqualified statement. I counted myself
aineug the acquaintances and friends of Mr.
Webster for mere than thirty years ;
for mere than twenty of these years I w.s
quite intimate with him, and from twelve
te fifteen of them I numbered him among
the pew owners, worshipers and communi
cants of the church in Brattle square, of
which 1 was pastor, and was regarded by
him as his minister, and during these yeais
I had various religious conversations with
him upon themes which I have already in
dicated. I had, therefore, some opportu
nity te knew something of the character
and tendency or leaning of Mr. Webster's
religious thoughts. Yet I de net think I
should be willing, in Mr. Cook's positive,
absolute, unqualified way, cither te assert
or deny that Mr. Webster was a Unitarian
But I de maintain aud should always be
ready te declare it in the strongest possible
italics, that Mr. Webster was bread, large,
liberal, comprehensive in his religious as
in his political opinions and convictions ;
there was nothing bigeted small, narrow,

Calvini.stic or orthodox about him.

SOME INSIDE HISTORY
KVKXTs IX A CEUTAIX HCGK PLOT
OF VOBK YEARS AC.O.
Seme Ket-ollectieu of tbc Birth of the
"Visiting .Statesmen" Band ami
the Ir-iiiiT of '76.
Four years age this week the American
people were passing through a terrible
strain. The excitement was fearful and
ominous. Republicans, as a general
thing, had ceacecded the election of Til
den, the state of Oregon was in doubt,
the plot by which Louisiana and Flerida
were stolen were still in embryo, a lew
stalwart Republicans still claimed that
Hayes was elected, ethers of the office
holders who did net claim a victory held
their breath and waited for a nod from the
leaders te begin te steal electoral votes
but as vet the greatest fraud of tlie cen
tury was still in the loins of time.
At that time the writer was in rlnlaciel
phia acting as Centennial exposition corres
pondent, and reporter en a city daily and
what fellows came under his personal ob
The seat of government hail been virtu
arly changed from Washington te the
Quaker city for the time being. Within a
square of the Schuylkill, en the corner of
Chestnut street, stands a queer-looking
dwelling. It is costly and elegant as te
material, but in appearance it is squat ami
ugly. In the interior of this residence
there ate many elegant and very expensive
articles of furniture and bric-a-brac and
some almost priceless relics and memen
toes. In the furniture and drapery eiyiic
house there is a predominance of two
colors, blue and red. In the character of
the relics and mementoes there is a pre
dominance of two elements, these of titled
persons and these of men and women cmi
dent in literature. This is the famous
residence of Geerge W. Ghilds, the man
who is regarded by the Xew Yerk Sun as
being the most talented writer of the
century, of four line couplets en the dead.
Fer a week in that month of November,
four years age, Mr. Childs's house was the
actual executive mansion. Here it was
that Grant, had Ids residence during his
visit te the exposition and here he scented
the lace curtains in the parlor windows
with the fragrant odor of cigar smoke.
Here also at. the same time cold and digni
fied Hamilton Fish, secretary of state, was
enjoying Mr. Child's cuisine. Here it was
that active, red headed, ambitious Den
Cameren, secretary of war, spent his even
ings. I fere Adnlph Berie, Grant's ex
secretary n! the navy (a geed matured,
pompous little man) came te listen, with
patient car, te the talk of abler men and
aii! them as far as he could. Here also
came handsome and conceited Jee Haw
ley, of Connecticut, president of the ex
position seeiety. Bleeding, .scheming Ol
iver P. Morten, was here tee.
and se was Richard McCermi'.'k, of
Arizona, a jelly, gentlemanly fellow, at
that time secretary of the Republican na
tional committee ; Yeung Ulysses Grant,
who flirted with half a dozen girls, was
engaged te a girl in Pennsylvania and one
in Cincinnati at the same time, and who
was married a day or two age te Miss
Chaffee, was with his pry at the house of
Cliilds. Coining and going daily te that
house en the corner were numbers of poli
ticians of all stripes and standings. They
had business that week with their mas
ters. Between the 1th and the 8th
of the month the Republican lead
ers giew frightened. Tilden had carried
Louisiana and Flerida and the pieblcm
was, hew te get the status away from him.
Grant, was importuned te interfere but for
some cause he reiuseii at tir.M te ! se
Cameren grew angry with him and told
liim he would defeat the party which had
twice elected him pic.-idcut. On the 8th
of November Cameren went, te Washing
ton. Next day a messenger arrived from
the capital, lie drove up te the house en
the corner late at night and hurriedly
entered. A sheit time afterward the
gas was lighted in the loom in the second
story which was occupied by Grant and
young "Ly?sus came te the window and
pulled the blinds together. Who the man
was the writer dues net knew, hut he bore
a message from Cameren and ids confed
erates, asking that troops should he sent
te the Southern states which were te be
manipulated. Still Grant refused. A
telegram stating that Grant would net
move in the matter was sent te Cameren
by Beb Maekcy. who wrote it in his fa
vorite resort at a well-known saloon
and restaurant en Ninth street, where
Cameren's agent went after his interview
with Grant. Camereu hastened back next
day,and with him came anotheref Grant's
cabinat, Secer Robeson, secretary of the
navy. They arrived in. the afternoon.
Giant was at the exposition. He had been
looking at the display made bj the gov
ernment in company with Berie. After
supper there was a cabinet, council in
Childs's library. It last long that council
that meant se much te the American
people, but it ended by (2 rant yielding te
the prayers of the sehemcrs. At this
council there cunc up for Cue first time
a matter that afterward became one of
the must famous features of that famous
plot the advisability of" sending various
prominent Republicans of the shrewdest
political type te Louisiana ami Fleiida as
"visiting statesmen" te see the votes
stolen by the returning beards. The plot
in the main was arranged that night (Ne
vcmber Dth), and one or two of the states
men who were te go Seuth were notified.
Sherman and Ivassen were among them,
but all the details were net put in shape
until the following morning. Shortly after
two o'clock in the morning. Secretary
Cameren left the Childs residenca. He
stepped out en the pavement with a r.mile
en his face, jumped into a carriage which
was waiting and drove te his rooms at
the Continental hotel, where he had a
short talk with Beb Maekcy in the ro re
tuuda before he went te bed. As has been
said, the plot was completed in full en the
morning of the 10th. It was done in the
private office of Jee HawJey. This efiiee
was in the western wing of the com
missioners' building beside the department
of public comfei t. 1 Iawlcy had two offices,
a public one and a private one, which was
in tlie corner el the building and here it
was that, everything was settled. The wri
ter happened te have business with Gen.
Ilawley, and he went into the outer office.
The deer opening into the private office
was open. Ne one was in the first room
and the writer was about te enter the
ether when lie saw a party of men grouped
around a desk at which President Grant
was sitting. Cameren, Fish, Guilds, Mc
Cormick, Robeson, Ilawley and young
Grant, were there, and if the writer re
members rightly, Senater Morten was
there tee. Grant, had a sheet of paper in his
hand which he read and laid down saying,
"I am net sure- it is the best thing te de,
but it is done new and that ends if."
Just then a clerk entered, accompanied
by Jeseph Gilbert who was acting as agent
for the associated press. They passed into
the inner oiiiee without paying any atten
tion te tlie writer. After an introduction
Grant handed Gilbert the sheet of paper
which he had been reading a few minutes
before and said, " Mr. G ilberl here is an
order which I have sent te Gen. Sherman
directing him te send United States troops
into Louisiana and Fierida. Yeu will
please send it by the associated press." A
few words of conversation followed which
the writer did net hear and then Gilbeit
left and the ofiiccdeor was closed. "Dick"
McCormick a few minutes later come out
and when asked by the writer why the
troops were ordered te these states
he said that Grant h;.d been as
sured that it was necessary te preserve
order and that he did net intend te allow
flip llnnnllltran ftln!e1ctnlin "lmlMn-nl
lie then gave the writer a list of the "vis
iting statesmen," who were te go Seuth,
and this was the first official information
which was given te the prcss.en the mat
ter. Among ether uames en this list was
that et Garfield, who McCormick said was
a congressman from Ohie, ami a verv ca
pable man, tee." The list of names and
the substance of Graut's order were sent
te Mr. Tilden in New Yerk fifteen minutes
after they were made known, te warn the
Democrats of the impending trouble.
"What followed arc matters of our crimi
nal history. Generals Imager's and Auger's
troops and the statesmen gobbled up the
two states, Hayes went into office, every
body who took a haud in the ieb was re
warded, even down te Garfield.

There is something important going en
anieug the Democratic leaders which .pro .pre
mises te create a sensation. The state ex
ecutive committee profess te be cognizant
of illegal voting in this city and llroeklyn
te an "extent which, they affirm, will In
validate the electoral vote for Gen. Gar
field and give the state te his eppenen1-,
but they will furnish no details at piescut,
except te cad attention te some extraor
dinary Republican results in particular
district In due time, they say, it will
all be made apparent. Your correspon
dent heard some intimations of this kind
at headquarters en the morning after the
election, but did net attach sufficient im im
peitance te them te give them publicity.
The action of the executive committee
in announcing through the morn
ing journals that in ceitain localities "a
vote has been cast largely in excess of the
legal vote." and that " the unaccountable
increase in the Republican vote in Xew
Yerk and Kings enmities is plain evidence
of fraud," skewr; that in their judgment,
at least, there is something behind theic
intimations. What it all means we shall
seen see. 3Icanwhile, you will observe
the committee " request all "citizens of
this state, in eaeii aval every locality, who
favor the light of the people te popular
government, and who believe a very fair
vote and an honest count essential te the
perpetuation of our institutions, te aid by
al! means in their power the ascertainment
of this result." The city Republican jeui.
nals de nut affect ignorance as te what
this proceeding mean. and they iai.se a
warning accordingly. The 'J'i'iliSi'C sas :
" Mr. iJarnum will de well te step right
where he is. The bu.-incss public aiein
no mood te tolerate seditious feeling. Xi
human being in New Yerk doubts liiat the
statu has honestly and irrevocably gene
Republican." The Times, even mere
pointedly, rem.irks : "The Republican
electors have a maicritv in the statu of at
least 2:i,00l, and "in all the Democratic
arsenal of trickery aud fraud there i no
method by which the Republican party can
bj cheated out of the liuits of victory.
The Democratic Congress which refuses te
count the wlc of Xew Yerk for Garfield
and Aithur will inaugurate revolution."
