invitation tbat Mr. Uinckloy act as

ter ia dated Oct. 0, from Roalyn. L. I.
Upon receiving bis rufuaal, Mr. Hinck
ley appointed John Boyd Tbatcher
chairman of tbocommittne. Tbe letter
il as follows:
I have thought over your request tbat
I assume the cbairnianshiD or accerjt mem
bership of the campuiu committee, and I
cannot reverse tbe decision, wbicb I ex
pressed to von verbally, tbat I caunot ac
cept either position. I wish, however, to
assure you that this decinou does not arise
from' any indisposition to assist in tbe
campaign, i recused a Biuiilar position in
tbe national campaign two years ago, al
though, as you know, I did not on tbat ao
count retrain from doing what I should to
help the ticket. I 6ire to remain In the
ranks. I am quite free to admit that if
ever I felt inclined to break over tbe rule
l have made for myself, it is now.
I do not wish to be misunderstood, and.
as I have been on other occasions, opposed
touoveruor mil, i win to express my
self emphatically as to feeling a deen in
terest in tbe succrsg of tbe Democratic
nominations and will give a hearty Demo
cratic support to their candidacy. It seem9
there never has been a time when Demo
crats ought to Mult personal differences
and stand together for the principles and
perpetuity of their party as now. In 18i2
tne Democratic pnrty was entrusted with
all branches of the national government
for the first time in thirty years, it was
not an accidental victory, but upon prin
ciple and for a erebt nation's unmose.
This is the first election takinsr nlaoe
since the party bas made a permanent
record of ita national Doliov in the Wmla
tion of the present congress. A little re
flection must show tbat tbe general pur
poses of tbe party as a national party are
at this very time having their greatest
test before tbe people. X might criticize as
to a e tain, as many do, tbe manner in
which the party bas during tbe last year
discharged the trusts cjmmltted to
it, but at this moment differences
among Democrats are not being
luugut out; it is against the
itepuniican party, onr common enemy,
tbat we are drawn up. While Democrats
are making faces at each other. MKinlnv
is being preached on tbe stump and in the
rtepuoiicau press and the verdict of the
elections will be assumed to have been
banded in npon this great national issue.

tbe entire political situation. Defeat here
will menu discouragement for Democrats
and encouragement for Republicans
throughout tbe country.
DISAFFECTION IN THE RANKS.
It is useless, of course, to disguise tbe
fact that there is a good deal of disaffec
tion In the party ranks. It is to be said,
however, tbat this is generally true of the
Democraticpai ty,and that very fact is one
of the great sources of its strength. I
cannot quarrel with anyone for this feel
ing and have myself antagonized on many
important occasions this policy and as
sisted candidates la opposition to the
But this is a pnrtisan fight a struggle
for party supremacy. The lines were
never more closely level. If the manage
ment of the Democracy it narrow I do not
see tbat tbe Republican machine is any the
less so, and if every Republican would be
a machine victory it is now. The more
liberal Republicans bad shown a dis-
Sosition to co-operate on a non-partiBan
oeis with the auti-mncbine Democrats the
situation might be different. But they
have done exactly the reverse. Instead of
rising above prejudice in an honest en
deavor to perform tbe work of good
eitisensbip they have given tbeir undivided
attention to the task of reaping partisan
advantage from Democratic dissensions.
For example, it is not to be questioned
tbat a large body of our cltizeus are dis
satisfied with tbe conduct of our local
affairs bf Tammany Hall. They are good
citizens and they have earnestly desired to
sink party differences and unite in a non
partisan movement for broader treatment
of our municipal affairs. What La been
the attitude of tbe Republicans regarding
this situation. Have they been will
ing to disregard party lines in tbe settle
ment of local Issues f It they bad and
been enforced, they would have said :
"This city bas nearly two Democratic
Voters to each Republican, and on any rea
sonable basis of co-operation in the inter
ests of good citizenship should have a Dem
ocrat for mayor, our rights to see that be
is a good man," bnt no. They want to de
feat Tammany Hall, of course, but only
on condition that their machine shall take
Slace of the Tammany machine so they
emand tbat tbe great body of Democrats
through ".whose votes alone reform shall
cast their ballots for a Republican.
This temporary wave of Democratic dis
sention is to be utilized by tbem to fix
npon an apportionment which will perma
nently transfer the state legislative power
to tbe Republicans. For ten 'years it ib
not to tbe changed. As tbe Republican
machine controls absolutely the Republi
can in the state, it enacts a nractlcal
transfer of the state legislative functions
to this machine.
If, in tbe presence of an enemy with
such singleness of purpose as the Republi
cans display, we deem this the occasion to
gratify personal animosities and work our
antagonisms, Republican supremacy
everywhere will certainly ensure. There
are persons, I know, who are inolined to
oppose Governor Hill on the theory that
this campaign will have an important
bearing upon the candidacy for tbe party
two years heiiea. I wish ' to sug
gest to sucb that 1098 may
be safely : left to tnke . care of
Itself. Eighteen bnndred and ninety-two
did and eighteen bnndred and ninety-six
will. Neither Governor Hill nor anybody
else will be able to secure two-thirds of tbe
vote at tbe next national convention un- '
less he stands clearly for the lntellestual
and moral issues ot his party and bas pre- '
eminent qualifications for the performance
of bis duty to both people and party.
As to Governor Hill whatever may be
an individual Democrat's opinion ot him.
the fact is tbat through no effort of bis
own be is tbe standard bearer of tbe Demo
cratic party in a contest which our oppo
nents nave insisted UDon making a ten
of nart vstron nth and lovaltr. Individuals
count for little in each a Btruggle
and personal reelings, should coum
for less. A political party ad.
vacces or recedes as it carries
loses election. Tbe result In this state
next month is tbe most important between
Ib'J'Jand lWUand any believer in Demo
cratic principles who sball vote against
tne Democrats ticket will succeed only in
dealing a blow in bis own convictions.
