Your 'power in the Southern States"
rests upon actual crimes of every
grade in the. cod e of -crimes, from
murder: to the meanest form of ballot
stuffing, committed by the Ku, KlUx

and,.as you know, some of the worst
:of them .were committed since 1.77,
'when !•3 on and they give the most
solemn assurances l of protection to
the freedmen 'of the , South. • These
crimes are all aimert at, the civil and
political rights of tile
the South, and as Ii believe, brit for
ihese agencies, „the very'State than
you represent, as Well as many other
States - in. the South, would be repre
siited beth in the Senate . and in the*
House, by Republicans. But for
these crimes, the - beast attributed to
you, t hat - one hundred and thirty-eight
solid Southern:votes would be cast
for the Democratic ticket, would be
but idle-vaporing, but now w'e' feel
that it'is alaober. triitb. Whilell have
no reason to believe that you or your

participated in the offences I have

classed' you, 'as jointly co-partners

which thus far has been successful'in
seizing political power in the South,;
and which,' it is hoped-by the aid of
the small segment; of the Democratic
party of the North, may be extended
'to all departinentsOf the government.

-stood aside graqefully when it was
thought that the interests of the
party would be better

his, present nomination is due as
much to his unselfishnds, in this re

office., Mr. Jadwin's strenth does
not lie in his ability to make a'good
display of himself oil his abilities,
but in his. superior political attain
ments, his unsurpassed business quail:
fications, and his undoubted integri

popular men in Wayne county, and
though the normal condition of
Wayne may e considered Deuiu

eight hundred majority, ther i e is no'
room fora reasonable doubt that he

NAw YORK, October 15.—The Na

shortly after noon today, with Gov
ernor Jewell , in the chair. The fol.
lowing address • was homed by the
Nzw Yoic, October 15, 1880. "
To the Republican Voters of the Union : • !
The elections of Tuesday last clear
ly show that with continued teal and
systematic effort Republican triumph
In,NoveMber be complete and
Overwhelming. Our plurality in Ohio )
is about '22,000, being a gain of 5,00 a
over the exceptionally large plurality . ••
Of 1879, while the election of fifteen -
of, twenty Congressmen gives u
gain of - six members.
,Ou plurality
in Indians reached about 7 oQ,'being
a gain of 21,000 upon the emocrat
icplurality of 1878. In t e Legiala
ture we have a. majority o fourteeii, ,
in contrast with ,the Dem nitic"ma- •
jority of twenty-six in th last ---Leg
islature, thus gaininga Uni States
Senator. , Of thirteen Con
Districts, • nine have bee carried,
making a . gain of three mbers.
The result in each Stite, d cape-,
daily in Ohio, is
,a conblusi 0-answer
Of the people to the false ming-
wilt assaults upon the perso I char-
actin. of our candidate for P esident,
Which have thus far been the
principal weapons. of our, opPo
nents, and, 'have been indecerttly
and shamelessly repeated in an ad
drees this' day published 'by - their -
stunned and demoralized National
Committee. Both these victories are
the result of a •spontaneons and en•
thusiastic ,uprising of the' people in
favor of patriotic principles,-enlight
ened and good. govern
ment. That:in Indiana has been won '
in spite of the layish expenditure of
money by the Democr.tic candidate -_
for. Vice President, who was noininat
'solely for that purpose and by
Eastern emissaries, who, in• 18;f.;,
vainly attempted to purchase the• I
Presidency, and have-recently tray- ,
ersed the'State shouting against and
at the same moment,:perpetrating
frauds made •possible by the loosest
ele - ction laws existing in any State in -
the Union, and is which were purpose- r ,
ly retained in force by the Democrat
ic judicial outrage. ,
It is apparent from these results
that if Republicans relax no exertion
every NortherkState will choose Re
publican Presidential electors; while
it is not improbable that some of the
Southern States will give their Votes'
for Garfield' and Arthur.'. 'Of seven
teen members necessary to make .the
next, HouSe of Representatives Re
pt blican, eleven are already gained in ,
Oregon, Vermont, Qhio andindiana,
and .the full result is reasonably car-
-stain. Six Senators necessary to make • •
t'he Senate, with the Vice President,
Republican will probably be secured •
frdm the. States of Ohio and Indiana •
(already.gained),.and from' Pennsyl-
xania, New York, New Jersey and '
Connecticut yet to elect. Thus with •
the inauguration of Garfield and Ar
thur all branches of the Government
are likely to be Republican once
more. Republican -however, .
to'. be reminded of the remaining
danger that the , disappointed Demo
cratic leaders will not shrink from
desperate acts to prevent full Repub. -
bean success, They' have majorities
in both houses of Congress, claim
full power over the final Presidential ,
count, and have steadily iefused to -
secure a peaceable and orderly ,de
dision of a' doubtfull result. Let no •
possible effort be make the'
Republican' majority onthe:electoral
vote so large as to avert the perils of.
a disputed count, andthe majority in
the next House of Representatives so
dedisive that there can be no con flict
in its organization. By 'unremittin g .
exertion s, such as • have secured the,
brilliant 'achievement in Ohio. and
Indiana, the Republican' party can
defeat the purposes of the Reaction
ists, who, in order to: gain political
power and patronage are willing to
tinsett i je the results o f war for the
Union, change the financial and rev
enue policy of the Government, de- '-
range the national :Currency and jeop-!
ardize the
_thriving business- inter-,
ests of the country. •
Republican success will, on :the
other hand, ..firmly' establish the
country, h free and honest' ballot,'
pretectionto life and property, well
paid and contented labor, activity in
till agricultural, manufacturing, me
chanical' and commercial pursuits,
