SENATOR HAMPTON believes that
Senator Bayard, of Delaware, could
carry New York, New Jersey, Con.
necticut, Indiana and California,
which are classed as doubtful states,
and would therefore be the most
available candidate for the Presidency-
SENATOR EDMUNDS writes a letter
in which be expresses extreme thank
fulness for the kind interest and good
wishes of those who desire his nomina
tion for the presidency, but says he
"can say with absolute candor that he
has no desire for the place, or to have
his name used in connection with it.
A STALWART Republican paper
thinks that "the bloody shirt issue
having bad its day should be cast out
among the rubbish." and expresses
surprise "that John Sherman couldn't
appreciate the fact." That is so. The
outrage mill has lost its power and is
no longer available even to excite
THE death of Associate Judge Larir
mer created a vacancy which we pre
sume will be filled at once, as it will
be difficult for the Governor to resist
the importunity of the committees
who hMW gone to enlighten him as to
the merits of their favorites. They
are all good men and valiant Demo
crats and he cannot go astray.
HON. A. U. SMITH, the member of
oongrem who has so long served the
Lancaster district, is like to have a
walk over for renomination. He is
an able and honorable representative,
capable of acting up to his own con
victions of right and justica even
against hie Republican colleagues, as
in the case of Geo. Porter.

THE Republican papers declare that
Wayne MacVeigh "has gone over to
the Democrats.'' They certainly have
some reason for this declaration, when
Mr. MacVeigh asset ts that "the Pre
sident of the United States should not
only be mm honest man, but he should
be a cause of honesty in others." That
sentiment is quite enough to turn him
out of the Republican ranks I
THE Easton Free Pre**, says the
Philadelphia Record, introduces an
other infant to the favorable consider
ation of a sympathetic country. The
slate men do not thiok tbey have tariff
enough. Their industry is ooly pro
tected 30 per cent. They are not
afraid of foreign competition, but if
they should find it desirable to squeeze
a higher prioe out of consumers than
is now being paid, they would find a
prohibitory tariff a very handy means
of effecting their object.
THE Denver Timet, a Republican
organ, believes that colored suffrage is
a thing that Republicans should no
longer deal with—that it is quite un
reliable, inasmuch as that vote will al
ways go where it will get the most
money. This editor roust be an un
grateful fellow. They always get the
colored vote, and should not grumble
at the cost of gettiog it, when the
patient negro relieves them from the
necessity of sharing the offices.
THE Republicans are inclined, says
the Harrisbnrg Patriot, to make an
issue on the apportionment question
by suggesting for renomination the
senators and members of the legisla
ture who werw responsible for the pro
longation of the special session. The
Democrats will gladly accept this
issue. It is to be hoped that the Re
publicans will preserve the courage of
their convictions and nominate the
conspirators against the constitution.
Pennsylvania will give no uncertain
sound on that question.
By all means give us the issue. Let
the rascals take courage and come to
the front,
TIIE Republicans of Pennsylvania,
Rosa Quay and the controlling ring
excepted, probably, act U|>ou tbe prin
ciple that their most cherished slates
man is a common liar. The more Mr
Rlaine insists that lie is not a candi
date for President, the more earnestly
tbey believe that he is. Tbey have ac
cordingly put him up iu nearly every
county as the uiau—always subject of
course to the approval of the Chief
THE Rev. John Bnyd> r reports a
recent interview with Uoscoe Conkling,
iu which the great sx-Seuator of New
remarked : " The electoral com
mission declared that Rutherford R.
Hayes had received the electoral vote
of Louisianna. After the accession of
Rutherford R. Hayes to the Presi.
dency, he affirmed that Packard, who
had received some three thousand votes
less than Samuel J. Tilden, was gov
ernor of the slate. If Packard was
governor, theu Rutherford held bis
place by tbe most delestible fraud
ever perpetrated.''
A WESTERN Democrat of prominence,
just returned from New York, says a
Washington correspondent, had an in
terview with Mr. Tilden while in that
city, and states the latter was in such
a weak condition that he spoke io a
whisper, which bad the effect to make
the conversation unsatisfactory. Mr.
Tilden intimated that he ought to
have been nominated at Cincinnati
four years ago, and gave the impres
sion that the nomination of 1884
would be acceptable to him, but for
his indisposition to undergo the physi
cal strain. Tbe gentleman also repre
sents the mental faculties of Mr. Til
den as remarkaoly clear and acute.
A NEW tarn, remarks the Pitts
burgh Pott, will shortly be given to
tbe Star-route cases. Ex-Senator
Spencer baa retained Gov. Bootwell,
of Massachusetts, and Col. Geo. B.
Corkhill, ex-United States attorney for
the District of Columbia, in a suit for
$60,000 which be proposes to bring
against Attorney General Rrewster.
TTe suit will be for illegal arrest at
the home of Spencer io the distant
state of Nevada, on a telegraphic
ordei, and bringing him to Washing
ton under guard after the star-route
trials were over, on the charge of con
tempt in not appearing as a witness at
the trial. It will be remembered that
Judge Wylie, before whom the star
route trials took place, discharged
Spencer, nod declared distinctly that
the action of tbe Attorney-Geoeral
was illegal and unauthorized. When
this case comes to trial interesting
proceedings may be anticipated.
THE call for the National Demo
cratic Convention is addressed to "all
Democratic conservative citizens of
the United States, irrespective of past
political associations and differences,
who can unite with us in the effort for
pure, economical and constitutional
Commenting on the above extract
the New York World says: "This is
an honest invitation and means just
what it says. The Democratic party
is conservative in the beat meaning ef
the word. It stands upon the Consti
tution as the basis of the Government.
It maintains every guarantee of that
instrument; a free and uncorrupted
ballot; the supremacy of the will of
the majority of the people; equal
civil and political rights for all, with
out distinction of race or color; tbe
inviolability of contracts; tbe assur
ance by tbe General Government of a
republican form of government to all
the states ; the power of congress to
raskelsw and collect taxes for national
debts; the common defense and gen
eral welfare, and tbe ascrcdaeas of
properly as well as of the lire* and
liberty of all citizen* Tbe Democra
tic party is making an earnest effort
for pure, economical and constita
tional government when it endeavors
to drive from power a party corrupt
and extravagant and holding consti
tutional restrictions and limitations in
Tiik bill for the construction of
•leu! vessels for the navy passed the
senate ou Friday. It authorizes the
President to direel the construction of
seven steel vessels for the navy, con
sisting of one cruiser of 4,500 tons
displacement, one cruiser of .'l,OOO
tons, one dispatch vessel of 1,500 ions,
two heavily armed gunboats of 1,500
tons each, one eight gun gunboat of
750 tons, aud one gunboat not to ex
ceed 900 tons. It also authorizes the
construction of one steal ram, one
cruising torpedo boat and two harbor
torpedo boats. This, if it become* a
law, will get away with some of the
surplus revenue now troubling the
This bill, the paasage of which at
this time is important as a campaign
measure, has yet to run the gauntlet
of the house. The very large appro
priation, ruouing up to many miltiiMis,
to carry out their projected "improve
ments of the navy," will be very con
venient in the bauds of Wm. E.
Chandler and John Itoach,fur furnish
ing the campaign capital of 18M4—a
good substitute for the star-route mail
service of IHBO. I h.s it no new dodge
and we trust the House will not be
caught in the trap by the jiasMge of
the bill. Tli re v bund red and eighty
five million* have been expended
under appropriations of congress by
the Republican administrations since
1860, fur "improvement of the navy,''
and what have they to show lor it?
Just nothing at all. It will not dam
age the country to await the assurance
of more honest management than can
be expected of Wm. E. Chandler, one
of the Presidential thieves, an adviser
of Robison and atrongly suspected as
an interested partner of Roach, "it)
commend the reconstruction of the
A Solid South.
There is an intention on th* part of
the Republican pariy to divide ordisturb
the solidity of that section. It would
weaken the value of that electioneering
cry during a Presidential campaign,
which has already commenced by send
ing South committees to hunt outrages,
to bo used for political fuel in a lew
month*. The N. Y. He raid commenting
upon this topic states ;
The solid fioulh cannot ba broken up
by such investigating committees as that
which is now junkating at publio ex
pense in New ••rlsaos hotels, on the
pretence that it is inquiring into an
election trouble two hundred or more
miles distant in Mississippi. That
scandalous and shameless, trifling, in
which wa regret to see so eminent a
■Senator as Mr. Hoar condescend to join
may la cunningly and unsetupulously
used next summer and tall to stir up
the prejudices and alarm the ignorant
fear* of Northern voters, burtt cannot
gain over Southern voters to the Rep
übliean ranks. How could it do this?
Let a committee of Sentorasil at public
expeose in a luxurious hotel in New
Yord to makes pretended inquiry into
tti election riot in Central Pennsylvania,
and Is It not eertain that the (arty
which authorized end countenanced
such an Abuse would lose vote* and
incur dislike in both States?
Oyer a considerable part of the .South
em State* sentiment favorable to pro
tective tariffs 1# springing up. Will the
party appeal to this In the coming can
vass? Will the managers send their
ablest arstors into the South to canvas*
the voters on this question ? If they
once more refuse to do this plain duty,
but instead of that prefer to inflame
Northern prejdicc* by sham inves
tigations, conducted at a distance and
with the reasonable suspicion of suborn
ed witnesses—in that case they may
find themselves confronted in the
North during thooanvaa*, with the ju*t
indignation of voters tvho will not tole
rate this everlasting and *h*mt-les*
Th# course of this Senatorial com
mit tea, whloh has gone out at the public
dost to make a pretended inquiry at a
great distance from the scene of an
alleged election trouble, is one ot the
most transparent and unworthy elec
tioneering tricks of whjgh even the
Republican party in its decadence has
been guilty. It is not pleasant to think
that tlii* pitiful electioneering job was
"put up" by men like Sen* o Sher
man, Edmund* and Hoar.
