What of Maine.
Shall the gross fraud in Maine be su tie red
without protest and righting? Emphati
cally it cannot pass without correction.
Mexicanizing must not lie repeated in a
Northern State. There must be no trans
planting of Southern methods to a free, un
trammelled Northern State. Wegant that
the impunity of Southern outrages has led.
to this boljJ attack on the ballot in Maine.
Crimes unpunished have destroyed the
effect and belittled political crime, but the
Maine outrage must not and will not go
unpunished. It would argue a pusillani
mity, an invasion of rights, that would
end in Mexieanizing the country, lead to
revolution in every State in the Union,
but what the Southern Chivalry have
achieved by bulldozing, and intimidation
over a weaker race, must never hear sway
in a Northern State. The high game in
Maine must and will be blocked. It was
the play of idiots, in view off he tremend
ous demonstration for Republicanism by
the last election. Had Ohio, Indiana.
lowa, and Pennsylvania gone Democrat
ic there might have been some counte
nance but no justice for the commission
of the outrage. Hut even in such a hypo
thecated case, we do not believe that the
sense of the nation would have endorsed
the villainy. We believe the act would
have overwhelmed Democracy, as it surely
will, not that the sentiment of the nation
has beene put on a record, whence there
can be no appeal until Democracy is up
rooted. It was a dastard act, the play of
fools, ready to go out and luing themselves..
Justice is demanded. There are no com.
promises or half way measures in order.
The stealing of a State Government, must
be punished as the crime deserves. No
matter how many in high odor or in au
thority may be united in the giganth fraud.
Even if Samuel J. Tilden stands god-father,
let the consequences come to him, as to
any other man who attempts a political
outrage like the one concocted and put
thro' in Maine.— Elmira Adrrrtscr.
The Philadelphia JI itllc tin cites an illus
tration to demonstrate a well-known fact,
viz .-that the individual can accomplish
the same object fifty per cent, cheaper
than the municipality. At the demonstra
tion in honor of Gen. Grant two very
handsome arches were thrown across
Chestnut street. One was erected by the
city, and the other by a prominent busi
ness man. The Mullet in had the curiosi
ty to ascertain the cost of each. It was
learned that the one erected by the city
cost and the one erected by the
individual It was also ascertain
ed that the city's arch contained
only half as much solid material as the
other, and was in every other respect
inferior to it. The same individual who
had reared the S4OO arch, stated that he
could have constructed the other one for
less than SBOO. The illustration is cer
tainly forcible, and shows the difference
economy that prevails when it is pub
lic money that is being expended.
Secretary Sherman, so far from being
worried over the honor given Don Came
ron, appears to be happy and complacent.
Interviewed by a Tribune correspondent,
he said Cameron was doubtless chosen
becuse he was a man of character and
energy, "lie is," continued the Secre
tary, "a friend to Grant and a friend to
lllaine. 1 know he is my friend. 1 really
don't know which side they place me on.
but I favored Cameron's election, because
I knew him to be a man of action and
Philadelphia is the largest wool manu
facturing city in the world.
