Conk/inol Persona/ and Potiti-
A REMARKABLE ANALAMS BF OMOSNAL
BEFOBLICAN, OF UTICA. NEW YOWL • :
The resignation of Mr. Conkling Mine,
Crates the sestet of the measure of suc
cess which he has attained and the ele
ments in his character which made eer- .
taiu his downfall, He aimed at a sensa
tion which would not only command
attention but would also compel ap
plafiFe. The act was flashy, pretentious
and dramatic. It was, stilt more, in
sincere, and it aimed to capture by
'trick and surprise positions and results
otherwise unattainable. He never meaat
to give up his seat in the Senate; he did
not inttn.l to give the people a chance
to pronounce on his conduct. He sup
posuti that the Legislature of New York
was the creature of his will, and that'
his servitors would record for (Ara a
re-election with hardly a semblance of
opposition and with a practically unani
mous vote ou the part of Republicans.
His whole career has run on the same
lines. His abilities are showy and not
substantial. Of culture be has none
beyond acquaintance with a few English
writers like Croly, Phillips and hiseauly
in his earliest and most pretentious
days, and nn the model of their glitter
and display be has formed his style.
His flatterers speak of him as an orator,
and he hashvon reputation as a political
speaker. His speeches are types ci the
man. In words they- are affluent; in
sentences they . — are, elaborate, ornate
and sensational; but they never present
a thought which has not previously
been beaten and battered by press and
politician. They are mosaics of the .
current party prattle, but they contain
uc passage which will endure. - He
never deals with - underlyingprinciples:
He sneers at the sentiment which en
nobles life; he attains his heights in
personal assault, in loose` partisan de
nunciation and in 'practical politics.'
He adds to his facility of speech real
industry-and power for work. Scant
ing the belief that men act from princi
ple, he bends every energy to attach I I
followeni by interest. Fearing men of
real ability, he enlists lieutenants who
are skilled in the arts of•the caucus and
are unscrupulous in obeying his edicts.
He drives them like slaves and requires
them to attend to every , detail of ma
; hipalation. They may flatter him,
`wad they must serve him by reaching
voters. No influences are too base, no
means too corrupt, so that they
4rve his ends. He demands lu:ques
tioning obedience, and he is willing that
obedience shall get its, reward out of
polities; and be believes that in politics
'the laborer is worthy of his hire.' That
is the theory on which he continued to
the end the chainphin of the moiety
system after its abuses were fully ex
posed and after the great uprising of
the merchants of New York against it.
On the same theory hd gave his 'tolera
tion, at least, to 'all the speculations
end extortions which brought scandal
on the Administration of Gen. Grant
during his second term. On the same
theory, he has been! a party to the com
binations in New York city which ren
der the municipal government so 'et
travagant and so inefficient, and which
follow so closely in the footstep of the
Tweed regime. This course has bound
to him the horde of speculators in
politics who seek wealth at any cost,
who, St Ns %tuft, will strike tluwu
publican candidates as, readily as sup
port them. They fly his colors; they
would just as readily serve under the
pirate's flag with cross-bones on a black
ground. Oue of his shrewd neighbors,
who knows him well, explains that the
secret of ex-Senator Conkliugs's sue
cess has been that he has organized the
hoodlums of the Republiran party, and
has used them for his own ends and of
ten to destroy Republican earididalea
offensive to him. His methods would
be inadequately stated, if prominence
was not given
_to his maintenance of a
detective bureau. He finds his wea
pons in human weaknesses. • He as
sumes that'all men offend and fall,' 6111
he seeks a record of their offenses and
their lapses. When a rival crosses , his
path this record serves as his armory.
The 'chapter would,be interesting which
would present the scandals with refer
ence to men of note traceable to him.
The Republican who, advocates princi
ple, who recognizes morality and'does
'not accept his dictation and advance his
ambitions is liable at any moment to
libel's, through correspondence i nflueno
eilby his creatures, and to innuendoes
set afloat from circles 'in which ha is
Rev. P. H. Fowler, D. D., now of
blessed - memory, was for many years the
next door neighbor of Mr. Conkling.
That eminent divine often declared that
Mr. Coukliug had no conception of au
ethical idea. It is certain that he has
no faith in principle, iu morality, in
noble sentiment. This is the reason
.why, during a Congressional service of
over twenty years. his contributions to
the statute-books of the Republic are
represented by a blank. He
gested no legislation; he has writtenno
statute. No abuse has been corrected
by him; no burden of government, his
been mitigated; no additional securities
to individual rights is 'due" to him. He
never lifted a finger to shield produc
tion against the n - egressionsl of corpora
- tions. If any one will delve in the
depths of hie Congressional speeches 4e I ,
will find that whatever is notahle - -
them turns on personal politics. His
flatterers will cite the French arms dis
cussion in the Senate as indicating his
Senatorial achievements. That was a
controversy over the details of adminis
tration, and Mr. Conkling's appearance
in it not as the advoeate of a principle
but as the attorney of a poliey, and he
kept the discussion down,' so far as he,
was concerned, to the low plane of indi
vidual rivalries. The'time has not come
for narrating the history of the Elec
toral complications of 1876-7. The sug
gestion of a commission has been claim
ed for Mr. Conkling. It really origi
nated _with. Judge McCrary, of lowa,
then a member of the House of Rep
resentatives. Mr. Conkling was led to
favor it because of his hostility to
President Hayes and because it give
Mr. Tilden another chance for the Ex
t entice chair. It will not be long be
fore Democrats can testify what
grounds they had for believing that
Mr. Coaling would vote in the Senate
to count the Electors of Louisiana for
Mr. Tilden. Hon, Clarkson N. Potter
could enlighten the country if . be
would make known the assurances
which *Tie given that the Committee
of which he was chairman should re
ceive of Mr. Conkling proof that would
invalidate the title of Mr. Hayes. Why
these assurances were made, what the
pretended evidence war, and why the
grit 'evidence was never ,proklueeLlt,
are questions the anawerio ;to ;wbidh
affect ttkm, honer the inteirity tI
The' political morality of Mr. Conk . -
ling is indicated by the fact that he
justified his course in appearing as
counsel for the'New York Central Rail
road in - a suit against the Government l l
while himself a Senator, and coneern
ing the internal revenue laws, which be
had nominally aided in framing. While
Senator, and while the relations of the
Government With telegraphy were con
stantly ,before Congress, he watt osten
tatious in figuring as. conneer of the
Western Union Telegraph Company.
He has never sp3ken a word or done an
act at variance with the interests of Ow
Central Path& Railroad while in either
house of Congress: He has bad the
reputation of being a regular counsel
of that corporation. He forced the
nomination of the present Attorney-
General of New York. 'The court re
cords will show that ho has, been the
favorite counsel of that official; and the
State pays large fees lot such services.
One of the recent jai in metropolitan
politics was the combination by which
John Kelly was driven out and, the
spoils turned over to the Tilden faction.
Promptly after that action Mr. Conk
ling appeared as counsel for Corpora
tion Counsel Whitney; one of the mani:,
pnlators on Mr. Tildeo3 side. Thus
the ex-Senator has been: - thrifty in get-'
ting employment from clients to whom
his action in the Senate: would be im
portant, and ho has picked up the rich
plums iu the gift of candidates who favor
ed him, 'while he has clutched at the
spoils in his , line from the factious of
the Democracy. Other men have been
criticised for taking fees from persons
remotely connected with legislation.
Criticism has passed Mr Cankling by
for this course of action - because noth-
iog else was expected of him. _ No one
discusses the political morality of Gen
eral Butler. The ex-Senator from New
York is classed in the - same category .
and for a like reason.
No sketch of the character of the ex-
Senator can be complete which omits
his genius, for quarreling. Persons
who have the profound sympathy of
all who, know them would be pained by
any specific reference to his quarrels
with his father, 4.iis brothers and other
Members of hie family; but no delicacy
forbids the recital that, of all the living
Republican Senators from New York,
the Representatives from the Oneida
district in Congress and the State Sen
ate, the Chairmen of the Republican
County Committee in. his own county
since his accession to (power—not 4i:the
is his political supporter to-day, unless
the actual incumbent of an 'office re=
ceivcd at his hands. In the House pf
Representatives ,his. -quarrels with
Blaine and with Washburn° indicate
his relations with, his associates. In
the United States Senate,. Sumner,f
Sehnrz and Trumbull pteceded th(l
whole existing body of . Republican
Senators in being decorated by his host,
tility and denunciation. The story of
his warfare on President Hayes is illu
minated by understanding this feature
of . his character. President Gar fi eld
has simply refused to let him force a
quarrel on `the nen ; " Administratieu

versy with him. Its patient perforuf

sensational suicide with which he has
adosned our politics.
Your columns forbid- the citation of
the particular acts which_would present
the. causes of Mr. Conkling's dewnfall
more completely than this• summary can
do. They prove that he has no glens
for legislation and statesmanship on a
high plane. He i a politician of the
caucus and, the convention. He has
skimmed along the surface at a period
when the ocean his been stirred to its
depths. Coming into public life on the
tido of the excitement of the war of the
Union, he , has' been a noisy and
matic Amin -major in the-Republican
army, while getting the advantage of
its strength. He has never'been a lea
der of thought; much as be has
his ornamental staff. He has shown,
au,lacity but _ never courage. To the'
outside multitude his self-assertion and
arrogance have been conspicuous ; but
his relations to General Grant eihibit
. the servility which he is wont to employ
to win his ends, and to which he resorts
to capture delegates in conventions and
1 rich men who will pay liberally to ad
vance his ambition. -
He is now in Albany, supplicating
for an election to a seat in the Senate
which he threw away, although the con
sequence was to give the Democrats a
majority in that body. Could any act
more plainly declare how little •he re
gards the Republican party or the wel
fare oi the Nation in comparison to his
own schemes ? Could anything render
more emphatic than his presence at
Albany, the insincerity of his resigna.
Alen and his purpose to array New York
against the party of the Union ?
These recent acts expose the motives
which actuate him. They will impress
the plain people of the State and. of
the Republic with the conviction that
he has fulfilled his last engagement on
the stage of American 'politics. They
will accord to him due credit as an actor;
will recall the perforthances to which he
has contributed a certain brilliancy and
audacity. They will congratulate them
selves on their sagacity in rejecting his
sispiratiiins for the nomination to the
Presidency in 1876. They will rejoice
that they overthrew in 18803 ho inove-
Ment in which_ he was • active to
bring back General Grant to the Presi
dency, with the influences now so well
If he had ever been the Champion of
a great principle, his name might live.
Hiy labors for personal politics bear for
fruit only apples of Sodom. By ap
pealing to morality and sentiment be
might have 'bound to him supporters
consecrated to a noble cause.and ready
to die for its leader. He has taught
that success "and power are -mile, and
are to be sought by all available means.
The hour has come when failure and
weakness are his lot,. and his itatellites
rush off in all eccentric paths, cursing
his- folly which brings ruin to thew.
He deified the spoils, and 'he was their
.prophet. He won support by giving
offices and encouraging speetilation in
politics. Many is the young politician
to.whom be hes gent the temptation :
" Ii you want anything you mast come
with us." To many an aspirant he bas
given the warning : "Yon Mast obey
orderii or be ostracised." The' eclipse
of the spoils darkens his whole career.
His failure is ignominious pt the instant
it is made plain that patronage has been
taken awn)! from him. Under President
Hayes hd was able to keep tipthe delu
sion that he was able - to recover his
power over the spoils, and many of his
creatures were fortified in position.
When President Garfield, by his fair,
just act, showed that Mr. Conkling
could not be master of all the National
offices in the State of New York, the
false edifice, built on_ the , sands, tam
bled, and the' most pretentious of poll
ticians found bislevel,—torresponcience
of the New York Independent.

Bakeriffeld, Wt, Dec., 93,1879.
8.. J. MIXDALL Co.. Gents :—I wish to add my
testimony in favor of your invaluable llniMent.
"Kendall's Bpavin Cure." In the spring of 1862
I slipped on the ice and sprained my right limb
at the knee joint. I was very lame and at times
suffered the most ' excruciating pain. 1 wore a
bandage on It for a year, and tried most every
thing in my reach, but could find nothing that
would give me permanent relief. When I over
worked, it would vain me very much. In April
1878 I begat to think I should -be a cripple for
life; but having some of "Kendall's Spavia Cure"
thought I would try it. I used one third of a
bottle, and experienced relief at once. The pain
left me and has not- troubled me since. I feel
very grateful to you and would recommend
-Kendall's flpivin Cure" to all - who stiffer with
sprains or rheumatism.
Tours truly, Mas. J. Bowsi.L. •
