A DARK RECORD.
SOJIE OF THK INFAMOUS DEE.D5
A Page Frem History for the Contempla
tion et Democrats Who are Invited
te Fay Homage te the ex
Fresldent. Itiii Career one of Constant Abuse and Vili
fication of the Democratic Party and
His Connection With the Con Cen
splracy thnt Defrauded
Mr. Tllden and the
Fer the Istkllieenceh.
That au ex-presidcut of the United
States, should be exempt from insult,
whenever and wherever he may go ; that
lie .should be courteously treated by all
his fellow-citizens, en his journeys or
visits, albeit made solely for pleasure or
recreation arc prepositions, that few will
deny. That, however, is about all he has
a riyht te ask, and marks the extent of
the people's obligations toward him, and
mere especially is this se when he really
assumes the role of a traveling mendicant
mere than that of a retired and dignified
gentleman. These reflections have been
invited by the late vis.it of Gen. Grant te
w astittigten, wiitcit was el course made
the subject of newspaper remarks, as well
as criticism from certain Republican quar
ters, as te the bearing of prominent Dem
ocrats eti that cccasien.
Xew, hew any Democrat, whether in
public or private life, cati se far forget
himself as te go out of the way te de spec
ial honor te Gen. Grant is hard te under
stand. Loek at the history of the man ;
it is a notorious fact that from the time
Grant cast his fortunes with the Republi
can party, he never yet let slip a chance
te vilify the Democratic party, and tra
duce its trusted leader ; se bent was
he in this crusade against the
patty, that lie se far forget the
proprieties of his exalted office
as te deliberately pcti and clothe in official
lansrttajre, in his. I think, last messaire te
Congress an unmanly fling at his political
opponents. His bitterness was se
gteat that it really seems he could
net close his elhctal career without, at
least, trying te cast contumely en every
Democrat in the land. In this he differed
from all his predecessors. They,
instead of opening afresh political heart
burnings, made it a point te mellow the
closing sentences of their last messages te
Congress with words of kindness and
geed-will towards all their fellow-citizens.
Net se with him, the gall was tee bis and
the bile tee bitter net te open it against
at least half of his fellow citizens. But
his friends will say that all that was but
a matter of sentiment, that rcaily injured
no otie ; suppose we will leek at some of
his prominent acts as bearing en his rela
tion te the Democratic party. I will net
touch en his administration genctally, and
will, thcicfere, net speak of the corrup
tion, perfidy, venality, usurpation, both
civil and military, that characterized his
entire two terms of office. Political de
bauchery, in every manner and form, was
se great, as really te ferce from him and
the Republican party such men as Sum
ner, Greeley and hosts of ethers. It will
become the duty of some future Gibben
or Macaulay te portray with unerring
genius the pieminent features of his ad
ministration ; net the least conspicuous
will be hs assaults en the rights of indi
viduals as well as states, made sometimes
with the stealthiness of a cat, while at ether
times with the boldness of a lien, but
always in the direction of what his friends
styled a strong government.
Let us go back te 1876 and see the part
General Grant played in the presidential
contest by which Mr. Tilden was defraud
ed out of the presidency. At the very
commencement any fair-minded man,
filling Grant's position would have reason
ed about thus : " As a Republican I de
sire and hope that Hayes is elected, but
as president of the United States and com
mander iu chief of the army and uavy,
new that the election of my successor is
in controversy, my first purpose and ob
ject must be te find out which of the two
candidates Tilden or Hayes is in point
of fact elected ; after that fact is ascer
tained, my next duty will be te aid in his
inauguration. As a means of satisfying
my mind and the considerate judgment of
men of both parties, I may organize a
commission composed of eminent men,
distinguished for their learning and fair
ness and exempt from partisan feelings, or
it politicians must must be sent, then 1
will divide them as equally as may be
chesing from the best of both parties. A
crisis having arisen, the whole world will
leek for and expect from me just and im
Such was net the way. Grant reasoned
and acted. The very first thine: he did
was te put himself iu close communica
tion with Senater Chaudler, the chairman
of the Republican national committee, and
ether leading Republican politicians. The
result of their joint counsels seen ap
peared. Orders were given te send troops
te such of the Southern states whose elec
toral votes the Republican leaders bad in
advance resolved te capture as a necessity
te the counting in of Hayes.
This was speedily followed by the ap
pointment by Grant of the noted visiting
talesmen, headed by Stanley Matthews,
Gen. Legan and many ethers, all pro
nounced Republicans, and net a few of
them unscrupulous politicians, while
ethcis were se clese in their relations te
Mr. Hayes as te make the appointment
improper in that respect. It is true, with
a refinement of irony seldom equalled,
after having clothed his pet commissioners
with national authority and importance
and backed them up by troops that were
practically placed at their command, Gen.
Grant turned round and suggested that
the Democratic party or the friends of
Mr. Tilden. might tee send some gentle
men te the scene of disturbance. Gen.
Sheridan, a geed soldier, but as every ene
knows, a much better Republican, was re
moved from his quarters and assigned te
New Orleans te act as kind of commander
in chief of the troops, operating with the
visiting statesmen for the special in
terest of Mr. Hayes. This was carry
ing out Grant's premise te the people,
" should there be grounds of suspicion of
fraudulent counting en eitJier side, itsTieuld
be reported and denounced at once."
It has been the fashion te censure the
Democratic leaders, including Mr. Tilden,
for agreeing te the far-famed electoral
commission, but I think, under the cir
cumstances, rather unjustly. What could
the friends of Mr. Tilden de? The atti
tude of Gen. Grant as president was well
known ; it was no secret. Leading Re
publicans boasted of it, as a matter te
their advantage, te wit : that Grant thor
oughly agreed with the Republican claim,
tli.'! the right te declare the presidential
result, was alone in the yice president.
What the vice president would de was a
foregone conclusion, i. e. : te declare
Hayes as president clcet. Te enable them
te carry out their pregramme te seat
Hayes, all the available troops net needed
in the Seuth were concentrated at Wash
ington. The purposes of Grant were net
only well known through his particular
friends, but likowise by means of the
celebrated Sunday interviews, published in
the New Yerk Herald. Had Mr. Tilden
been declared elected by Congress, the
result would have been a dual government,
apd if this was te be of any force, it meant
civil war, and the Democratic party was
net then prepared te embark in a civil war
for the presidency.
I de net refer te the electoral commis
sion new te challenge Democratic opinion.
My sole purpose is te show that owimrte
the well-known attitude of the president
and cemmandcr-in chief some compromise
seemed te be advisable that looked te a
reasonably honest solution of the diffi
culty. Gen. Grant, acting as he did, ab
dicated his high position of head of the
nation for that as chief of a party, and the
head centre of the conspiracy that de
irauuca .air. TildetL
With abundantiire vocations, it cannot
be justly said that the Democratic party
resented the thrusts upon it made by Gen.
Grant. Fer immediately en his return
from his protracted journey Democrats
vied with Republicans te extend te him
honors due an ex-prcsident. Gen. Han
cock, in the goodness of his heart, as the
senior major general of the army, joined
anu aided in the grand reception given in
honor of Grant in Philadelphia." New,
hew were these courtesies repaid. Wit
ncss the celebrated Fowler interview, of
wuicn it may be said that even decent
Republican newspapers, although in the
midst of a heated political campaign, were
really ashamed. And instead of the digni
fied demeanor, se befitting an cx-ptcsident
of the United States, he condescended te
make of himself a kind of traveling circus
during the past canvass by presiding
ever Republican meetings in the doubt
ful states filling the entire bill him
self in that always amusing show.
In his well-memeiizcd little speeches he
steeped lower in vulgar abuse of the
Democratic party, than the lowest and
most characterless pet-house politician.
There is net a crime with which he did
net charge Democratic party, there was
no slander, however mean, that he failed,
This is the man that Mr. Hayes asks a
Democratic Congress te make captain gen
aral with an enormous salary. This is the
man who gets his Republican friends te
complain that Democratic senators and
congressmen failed te pay him the homage
te which he thinks he is entitled. W.
A Relic of Other IaS.
Dr. Hewcr, the Once Popular Member of the
Legislature anil Ueapltal Surgeon
The Philadelphia Times of Sunday has a
long account of Dr. J. B. Hewer, the well
known and rather weak-minded old pliysi
cian, well-known te our citizens as a for
mer representative of this county iu the
Legislature and a frequently unsuccessful
candidated, for re-election. The Times
draws the following picture of his present
abject and reduced condition :
In a small, scantily-furnished room en
St. James street, West Philadelphia, there
sits an old, gray-haired man all day long
poring ever a bundle of tattered, time
stained papers. His form is bowed and
his face is hidden, pave when he raises his
head in a sudden impulse of recollection !
and leeks wistfully out of the window
upon the dull gray cf the sky, which seems
te call up in his mind some vision of the
past. His hair Js thick and long, and
from his habit of running his
thin, bony fingers through it in his
spells of troublous thinking it lies every
way en his head. But the most striking,
albeit piteous, picture is his face. It is '
partially covered with a long white beard, '
the cheeks and forehead arc seamed and j
wrinkled, and the former se haggard aud !
emaciated that they are pitiful te leek at
1MM. 1.A.M .. C-llf -..,.... ,.!'

intellect and refinement. The cheek-bones I
are high and the forehead and nose premt-
ncnt all the mere se from the contrast of
the sunken cheeks and the dc.p-suukcn
eyes of blue, which leek out at ail times
with indescribable sadness and with that
unnatural brightness peculiar te some in
valids. But it is only when the face turns
feebly around in the old easy chair, iu
which the body reposes, that his pitiable
condition is realized ; and when lie gets up
presently te bring out mere papers from
the old corner cupboard by the window,
it is seen he walks with difficulty, and it
hardly needs his words te tell th.tt among
the complication of affections he is suiicr
ing from the chief one is paralysis. As he
hobbles back te the old easy chair and
painfully seats himself he takes up the
second bundle of papers, slowly unites the
string that holds them together and begins
slowly and carefully te examine them.
As he bends down ever the bundle el
old papers he become thoroughly lest in
the subject and thinks and talks of noth
ing else. Over at the window, sewing, is
a bright-faced cheerful woman some years
younger than the sick and emaciated hus
band. It is a face that has evidently
known care and trouble and sorrow, and
as it bends ever seme work it. is seen the
hair is streaked with gray. There is some
thing singularly sweet and touching in
this woman's leek as she new and then
glances up from her work and leeks ever
toward her husband as he gees en in his
task of sorting out old papers and letters
aud tells of his past experience. And
sometimes she will snspend her work alto
gether and fold her hands and listen te
him, and, as his memeiy falters, she will
assist him by giving him the date or local
ity of the event or incident he seeks te
remember. And in what a voice she
speaks te him ! It is the sweetest veieO
in the world, whose rich, tender tones arc
se like music that the listener feels au
inspiration when the first chord falls upon
The Times then gees en at length te re
cite the atery of Dr. Hewer's life as it is
familiar te people around here, who have
heard him tell it again and again substan
tially as he tells it te the Times reporter.

from Thad. Stevens and Hcrr Smith, his
popularity, his career as hospital surgeon
and his physical afflictions a:e told at

Colonel J. F. Claiborne, ene of the old eld

experience that befel him nt, Jacksen,

was se full that it didn't sui p: i-c him when
the host entered his room in the dark and
asked permission te put a cot in-tlie room
for a stranger. The latter entered seen
afterwards and retired, but befere drop
ping off te sleeep the eceupants of the
room had a very interesting ch i . In the
morning they were se pleased with each
ether that Claiberne asked the stranger's
name. "My name i-: McCaidlc." Clai
borne started back in astonishment, ex
claiming : "Net Colonel William McCar

said McCardle, "and may I ask your
name?" "Claiborne," was the reply.
" Geed Ged 1" said McCardle. "net Cel.

said Claiborne, advancing jind shaking
hands. The two editors had been calling '
one another cut threats for ten years.

When Judge Black was here te attend
the wedding of his granddaughter. Miss
Shunk aud Lieutenant Evans, he uninten
tionally started a topic which has new be
come a favorite subject for discussion when
two or three legal minds are assembled at
a state dinner. Judge Black told me the
story, and I have repeated it te many, of
the motto en the attorney general's offi
cial seal, which the judge had placed
upon it when he was attorney gen
eral in iJucuanan s administration.
The motto is : " Qui pre Domine Justitia
scquitur'' who prosecutes for our lady jus
tice. Judge Black says that he made use
of this, remembering the story which he
asserts Sir Edward Coke tells of his inter
view with (Jueen Elizabeth when he was
taken te her te " kiss hands " for his pat
ent, and was introduced as "Her Majesty's
Attorney General : Qui pre Demina JRe
ginn scqnitur." Elizabeth replied with
emphasis : "Xay, by Ged's teeth it shall
net be se ; wc must chanre that he shall
be my attorney general, Qui pre Betniria
As Judge Black cannot new remember
where he found the story I appealed te a
number of the highest officers of the gov
ernment, allot whom have the reputation
of gteat knowledge of the law and the
literary as well, and net one of them had
ever heard the story before, except ene te
whom Judge Black had told it, and nene
had ever s-een it in any of Coke's works.
Therefore, as I have been informed by one
present at seveial state dinners lately, the
topic has been much discussed and the
burden of proof new rests upon Judge
Black, who is mere than suspected of hav-ingoriginatcdthcCekc-Elizabcthinterview
It is generally conceded that, whether he
formed it or imagiued it, the story is an
excellent ene. Several of the judges of
the supreme court are re-reading Coke's
works new, I am told, and also "The
Lives of the Lord Chief Justices of Eng
land," te find the anecdote, and Judge
Swayue is se annoyed at net being able te
point te the vel it me where it is told that
an eminent jurist says hu does net believe
he will be able te write Ills resignation
this winter. This civil service examina
tion is sometimes extended te include
the question : " Hew long has the at
torney general been a cabinet effieer?"
That is te say, have these hold
ing that position siuce the adep
tien et tue constitution all been mem
bcis of the cabinet? It seems strange,
btib some high officials have disputed the
fact tlia .I'lef our attorney-generals have
been members of the cabinet. Judge
Black, Judge Swayna, Attorney General
Devens and ethers agree that they have
been from the first, beginning with Ed
mund Randelph, appointed by Washing
ton in September, 1789. They were, how
ever, net heads of a distinct department
until 1870, when the law passed creating
the department of justice. The attorney
general used te be what in England is
styled "a cabinet officer without a port

Here every channel of industry is open

ate en equal footing ; the prejudices of race
have no existence save when there is a
struggle for the domination of the spoiler
ever pieperty. and he legislates and fills
positions for which he is fitted net '-nly
with the sympathy but often by the votes
of the whites. I saw a score of colored
policemen en the streets of New Orleans,
serving under a Democratic mayor, but it

.seventy-live hundred colored voters of the
citj, or one of the thrice that number in
the state, for any legislative position,
cither state or municipal. I saw the
coletcd man mingle with Democratic
organizations in the Seuth, but net en
could sit in the councils of the League or
the Union Club or march iu mixed ranks
with the Iuvinciblcs or Yeung Republi
cans in Philadelphia. I saw him have
free access te every channel el me-ch.uiica-1
industry in the Seuth, but he Is
relentlessly excluded from the organized
mechanical pursuits of Republican Phila
delphi.i. His admission into the printing
office of the Times or the Press or the
North American would vacate every white
man's case, where most of them vete the
Republican ticket te help the black man;
and the colored labor of the Seuth, as a
class, is te day better paid, mere steadily
employed and mero uniformly free from
want, than the farm labor of the North or
of any country of the world. Indeed, se
great is the demand for labor in the
new rapidly progressing Seuth, that all
colored laborers arc employed from Jan
uary te January ; their wives and children
double or quadruple their income in the
cotton picking season, that lasts three
months in the year, and there is new a
yearly winter influx of white labor from
the North te aid in the sugar and rice
harvests. This is the peace te the black
and thu white man that has followed the
new accepted domination of the whites in
the Seuth, and the black man docs net
wish it changed for a renewal of a strug
gle te which he is utterly unequal. If the
North must assume the task of elevating
the black man. te equal power regardless
of fitness, let it begiu by giving him in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, New Yerk
and ether Republican states, the same in
dustrial equality aud political promotion
that the less educated black of the Seuth
new enjoy with the cordial sympathy of
the Southern whites. I see the same
colored leader (ex-Senater Revels), who
was excluded from the forum of the Acad
emy of Music, when a Republican United
States senator, solely because of bis race,
new at the head of a colored college that
is sustained entirely by the Democratic
state government of Mississippi, and he
holds his high commission from the same
authority, while Republican Pennsylvania
has no such temple of learning for the
black man. Although forbidden te speak
in the Philadelphia academy, he can speak
te intelligent aud appreciative white au
diences iu the state that is blotted by the
Kemper and the Yazoo tragedies. In all
the reign of passion that has followed the
war of races in the Seuth, I can find no
imitation of the exclusion of a Curtis
front a public hall by the Republican
mayor of Philadelphia. These are un
pleasant contrasts te present, but between
the accusers of the North and the accused
of the Seuth, there must one day be truth,
aud I shall net hinder its early coming.
