THE MURDER OF MR. GLANCEY.
The sketch of the murderer of Mr. Glan
cey which we publish this morning shows
that liia victim had ample justification for
the strictures which the Domination of
Gray g*ve rige to. It appears that he is,
what Mr. Glanccy called him, a man of de
cidedly bid character ; a brawler, swash
buckler, slanderer and lawbreaker. That
such a man should have been nominated
for District Attorney was disgraceful to
the Republicans of Santa Barbara, aud Mr.
(ilancey, as an upright member of the
party, and ai a public-spirited citizen and
journalist, was entirely warranted in de
nouncing the nomination as unlit, and in
appealing to honorable Ile2>ublicaii9 to
combine against it and defeat it. The
presence of such a man as Gray — if that be
his real name — in the position of District
Attorney, would evidently have been most
damaging to the interests, not alone of
tho party he represented, but of the com
munity. And we do notheaitate, in thelight
of tbe facts, to express our opinion that the
men who c want of principle and moral
cowardice and weakness procured the
nomination of this notorious ruflian, are
indirectly responsible for the death of Mr.
Glancey. They knew that Gray was
utterly unfit for the position, but for the
sake of such dirty work aa he might l>e
capable of performing they were willing to
sacrifice both the reputation of the party
and tho iuterests of the people of the
county. It was unquestionably in the line
of Mr. (ilancey 'a dnty to rebuke this dis
creditable nomination, and it is evident
that he merely gavo expression to senti
ments which every right-minded Hepubli
can and citiz -n of Santa Barbara shared
with him. Mil taking off wa? a brutal,
cowardly and atrocious murder, and it is
vital to the good repute of the community
in which the crime was committed that the
punishment of the assassin should be ample
A letter from Plakted was read at the
Tammany meeting the other night, and it

Piaisted returns " thanks for the invita
" lion to be present at your ratification of
..- " the victory of our plain people." Now why
shoal 1 the Democrats ratify a. Greenback
victory, and why should I'laiated, who was
a Republican before he became a Green
backer, feel grateful for Democratic in
dorsement? Either the Greenbackcrs are
or, they are uot a distinct party. If they
are, then it is evident' that their
vioturits are cot Democratic vie
- toriei. If they are not, then it
is time the distinctive title 'was
dropped, and the two organizations were
merged. Again, if the New York Democ
racy believes ia its own honest money
platform, huvr can it consistently rejoice
over the success of the dishonest money
programme of the Greenbackeis? It is
quite impossible to accept the Democratic
. and the Gieen backer creeds together. One
demands henest money. The other de
mands fiat money. Thero ix then fore BO
point of contact between them. Yet the
New York Democrats not only rejoiced
over the Greenback victory, but Senator
■ Bayard thought the occasion appropriate
for lecturing the Republicans on sound
financial piinciples. In the face of
luch shameless and gross expressions of
contempt for all principle and conviction it
is not . surprising that the Democracy
•hould bo accused of having abandoned be
lief in everything but spoil?, and that the
Greenbaekers thoul J 1*) accused of being
only a Democratic side-show. And since
■ facts are far more trustworthy than word.",
these opinions of the relative standing < i

ever the public choose to call them or it —
are more than justified. ;, ; .~,
HE CANNOT BE TRUSTED.
An attempt i 3 being made by some eo
cillcu "independent"' journals to create :
the impression that though fraud and force .
are being employed in his behalf all through j
the South, yet General Hancock has no
sympathy with these practices, and vrould, if
he were elected, put himself in opposition
to them. Of all the positions taken by !
Democratic advocates this appears to us to ;
be the weakest and most irrational. A j
striking specimen of the kind of argument ',
referred to occurs in a recent article in the
Chicago Timtg, which sets out by demon
strating the wholesale character of the
Alabama frauds, aud showing conclusively \
the truth of all that has been published j
concerning them, and then proceeds to \
argue that General Hancock ought not to J
be mistrusted becauseof the lawlessness and
brutality of Southern bulldozers and ballot- ;
box stutters, but ou^ht to be taken at his
word when he declares that " the right
" to a free ballot is a ri^ht preservative of j
11 all rights, and must and bhall be main- j
" taiaed in every part of the United
" States/ and when he says : "It is only
" by a full vote, a free ballot, aud a fair
" count, that the people can rule in fact as
" required by the theory of our Govern
" ment. Take this foundation away and
" the whole structure falls." Upon this the
Times solemnly observes : " Whatever
" ' Eolid-South' Democrats believe, most
"people in the Northern States believe
"General Hancock will, if elected, act in
"accordance with this declaration, and
" that of his party platform. He has been
"in the service of the nation ull his life,
"aud i 3 known to be a loyal and law-abid
" ing man. It is not to be supposed for a
"moment, therefore, that, if elected, he
"will permit the foundation of our Gov
-11 ernmeiit to be taken away, and suffer the
" whole structure to fall, if it is in his
"power to prevent it." We cau only
characterize this as nonsense. If there is
any one thing plainer than another at the
jut tent moment in American politics, it is
the fact that the " right to a free ballot"
has already been repudiated and denied
throughout the South. From this it follows
that General Hancock's dependence is not
upon " a full vote, a free ballot, and a fair
"count," but upon the forcible or fraudu
lent suppression of the franchise in the
S juthern Stat< a. In accepting the Demo
cratic nomiuation he declared his entire will
ingness to take the Presidency as the spoil
of fraud and force. No other interpreta
tion can possibly be placed upon his posi
tion. He knew that the hopes of his party
rested upon the solidity of the South. He
knew that without the 138 Electoral votes
of that region his canvass would be idle.
He knew that these 138 votes could not be
honestly obtained. He knew that if they
were obtained it must be by such frauds aa
have already been practiced in Alabama.
He knew that he never could be fairly
elected to the office he sought, and that if
he secured it the victory would not repre
sent an expression of the will of the ma
jority, but would be a triumph of outrage
and dishonesty, and a monumental de
feat of republican institutions. All this was
necessarily involved in General Hancock's
acceptauca of the Democratic nomination,
and it follows that his letter of acceptance
was and mu3t bs regarded a3 an act of
brazen hypocrisy and utter cant.
The people of the Northern States are
not idiota, and therefore they will not
pin their faith to the declarations of a man
whose whole position gives the lie direct
to his professions. No more impudent
piece of humbug has ever found its way
into political literature than Hancocks
snuliling pretense of veneration for the fr<>3-
Jom of the ballot. Underhis circumstances
the utterance of such language was an in
sult to the intelligence of tho country. It
was a sermon against theft preached by a
highwayman ; a dessertation on brotherly
lore by a border rulilian ; an argument in
behalf of monogamic marriage by a Mormon.
And the answer of the South to these
lofty declarations shows how thoroughly
the significance of Hancock's attitude is
appreciated by his supporters. That
answer was the Alabama frauds. Tliesc
frauds are established as facts of history
now, but is there any hint of remonstrance
or protest from General Hancock? No;
he i 3 silent as the puve on this
pregnant illustration of the difference
between the precept and practice of
his party. And he will continue to
lie silent, for when ho consented to be the
candidate of the Democracy he well knew
that hia only chance of success lay in the
free employment of just such political
methods. There is no exaggeration and no
prejudice in these words. They are the
just inferences from his position. We are j
bound to draw these inference?, and to point |
out the worthlessness of the wretched soph- '
istries by which it is sought to persuade j
the American people that a candidate who
coolly and deliberately agrees to accept an j
oiiiou which he knows can only be won by
gross fraud, is himself honorable and trust
worthy. The piercing light of Truth can
not be dimmed by these false pretense?.
I No man who accepted the Cincinnati nomi
nation cau by any . possibility be worthy
the confidence of tlioie who believe that
"the right to a free ballot is a
"right preservative of all rights," and
thn: a party which trample* on the
suffrage is a public enemy. Facts are in
finitely stronger than words, and facts
prave that Hancock is ready and willing t >
steal the Presidency. He is responsible
for tho AUbama frauds, for he has con- \
doncd them. He \3 responsible for all the j
bulldozing at the South, for it ia lxin^
| perpetrated in his interest. If he is made j
Presideut— for he cannot be elected—he
will be the representative and exemplar cf
Mexican politics. And if l.c is successful hu j
will assuredly concern himself no more
abottt the freedom of the ballot at the \
South than he does to-day. From a man ;
who i* notoriously and obviously willing to i
sacrifice tho very foundations of free gov- j
crnment to his personal ambition, nothing \
can be expected but that he should be the j
abject tfiol of the lawless elements of I
whose outrages he seeks to m»ke stepping- <
stones to power.
THE MOUNTMORRIS MURDER.
Lord Mouutmorris, an Irish landlord,
has been murdered in the usual cold
blooded and brutal manner which ch»rac-
Urizes that class of asfassi nationi". The
emmon allegation is made, that he was on
bid terms with his tcn.-int*, though it is
well enough known that no Mich explana
tion it Deeded to account for half the
agrarian murders which have occurred in
Ireland. The effect of this crime will nat- i
uraily be to hinder the progress of all i
rational modes of adjustment of the issues ,
in controversy. The Lind league is said |
to have disclaimed all complicity in the
murder, but as a matter of course such a !
denial lias no signitisance, while it will be j
rexarktd a) singular that a meeting of
the League was held near the tccno of the j
crime on the same day. These aesa-'sint- |
tions outwei«h a (.-reat deal of stump oratory
and florid gush, and they disgust and
alienate those whose pymrathics might
otherwise be enlisted on thn side of the
struggling tenant*. They justify, or seem
to justify, resort to harsh measures on t!:e
I part of the Government, moreover, aud
| they persuade a great many people that !
| lawlessness is the true cause of Irish dis
content. Unfortunately the intemperate
language too frequently used by Irish agi
■ ta.tors appears to hint at just such meth
! od3 of getting rid of obnoxious landlords,
I and perhaps the fault is less with an ig-
n orant peasantry than with those better
■ instructed demagogues whose reckless sug
gestions frequently sow the seeds of crime
i in tho breasts of their auditors.
THE CAKLAND WHARF ACCIDENT.
The accident to the special train carry
! ing tho First Regiment, on the Oakland
I wharf, barely escaped beiDg a catastrophe.
' The train had very fortunately not passed
' off the tilled portion of the wharf, aud so
I the engine alone broke through and fell
i into the water. A very important demon
j stration of the value of the air-brake was
given on this occasion. ' With the old
fashioned hand-brake it would have been
impossible to stop the train quickly, and it
could not have been handled at all from
the locomotive. The presence of mind of
the engineer however impelled him to put
on the airbrakes instantly, and although
his devotion to duty perhaps caused the
sacrifice of his own life, it saved the pas- |
sengers. Another lesson of this accident
i 3 the utility of the gigantic filling-in ope
rations now being prosecuted by the rail
road company. The solid wharf here
probably did very much to prevent loss of
life. The lesponsibility for the accident
does not appear to be as yet definitely
placed, though it i; intimated that the
switch was properly open. The fact that
this is the first accident of the kind that
has ever occurred on the long wharf at
Oakland shows that there is no lack cf pre
cautions, and that the regulations are such
as to atford security against anything but
culpable carelessness, which of course i 3
possible in all human actions.
THE SANTA BARBARA TRAGEDY.
In the current news of the day is a cir
cumstantial account of the murder of
Theodore Glancey, the editor of the Santa
Barbara Prets, by one Clarence Gray. It j
appears that the latter had been nominated
by the ltepublicau Convention of that
county for the ollice of District Attorney.
Glancey, editor of the Prett, commented j
on the untitness of tiii.-s nomination, Ue
declared in substance that it was a nomina
tion not tit to be made. When the first
unfavorable comment j appeared in the
Prest, Gray met Glancey and threatened
, that if any further unfavorable comments
appeared iv his paper the town would Dot
hold them both. When the Becond criti
cism appeared Gray soon afterwards met
Glancey, and on inquiring if he was the
;■ author of the unfavorable comments,
shot him fatally, the latter only
living a few hours. The comment ot
Glancey on the nomination of Gray
touching hi 3 fitness for oifice, for greater
exphcitness, is here quoted. Referring to
the question pending in the Supreme Court
as to the possiiile tailure of county elec
tions this year, Glancey said : "Not the
least of thtse in this county is the fact •
that the Itepublicans here will ba relievid j
of the in cessity of defeating their caudi- j
I date for District Attorney. The uomiua- j
i tion was disgraceful in every respect, and j
while it is extremely disagreeable for j
I earue3t Republicans to take Bach a course
in a Presidential year, there is' no differ- j
ence of opinion among those who have the
gcod of the parly at art. They are con- ;
viuced that all such candidates should be
beaten and Republican Conventions taught, i
■ if they do not realize it already, that, the . j
i decent people ot Santa Barbara county j
will not submit to having the officers of
the law chosen from among the hoodlums i
' and law-breakers."
There is nothing in this criticism which
jan honest editor might not legitimately
make. If it wa3 just it wa3 what ought
to have been said. If there was any error
of inference, an invulnerable mau would i
I not be hurt by it. Adverse newspaper \
; critici;in does not often hurt a candidate ;
I who is tit to be nominated. But it is very j
i damaging to these who are not fit for office.
Many a candidate of the latter sort h is buc
cecded in obtaining a nomination. Hs has
button-holed delegate*, and by untiriug
persistence has succeeded iv bringing
| over a majority to 1113 tupport. That is i
just the way bad nominations are made, j
Most of the corrupt candidates creep into \
' office through Nominating Conventions j
i which exact pledges that ail the nominees j
! shall bo supported, both good and bad — an
I obligation which might r-.quire the support
'of a horse-thief, eounteneitcr or a mur- !
! derer, if there was no opportuuity to review ■
! such selections an 1 expose their unfituess. i
When a man seeks a nomination he puts
, his character in istue. It is a legitimate
■ subject fur discussion, so far as it relates to ■
I his litness for office. He challenges the \
judgment of the public touching his fitness i
for the place. It is the legitimate business
of the press to discuss these qualifications,
aud if it is known that the candidate is un
lit for the position, to cay so in language
which cannot be mistaken. But in going
to this extent there is DO warrant for hit- j
| ting below the belt, The family matters of j
| the candidate, wl,o his relatives might be !
!or their antecedents, are not legitimate |
I subjects of comment. * * * It does :
not appear that Glancey went ; be- ;
yond the limits of- an honest aud j
! conscientious journalist. He believed
1 that Gray was aa unfis man for
I the office sought, and itated the grounds
of his belie!. If Giay had been really a I
| law-breaker he was not fit for 80 responsi- I
I ble an office as that of District Attorney.
I A conteni|K>rary cites numerous mttanoes
i of Gray's conduct, which go to dhow bis >
; itter unlitners for ti e (I.ice. The crown- ;
! ing instance is that he confronted the juur- '
i nalist who had done his duty to the public !
I by declaring his uttitnees, and killed liim.
jit was a singular illustration of Santa j
Barbar* justice that the slayer, who will
probably be called to stand a tiial for mur
■ der. was allowed to go on the nominal bail
:of $5,000. The victim in this ■ instance
-1 was a man of excellent character, well
known to the newspaper profession as a I
, news and business agent— a man who had j
i served t.is country with honor in critical
| time?, and who j was serving the public '
i honorably as the tditor of a local paper.
He stood in the way of the election of an
unfit man for office, and was assassinated
for that'ecrvice. "*"' '* " '.*': : * The

THE SANTA BARBARA MURDER.
The details of the murder of Theodore
Olancey, editor of tho Santa iUrhara Prtm,
I by Clarence Gray, a local politician and
lawyer, leave no room for a pica of juatili
citii.n. It was a deliberate crime, and
ehould be punished without the least re
| gard to the position or ]>olitics of the as
sassin. Glaucey, in his Republican paper,
criticised the uomiuecs of the publicau
party for local otlice?, aa he had an un
doubted right to do, and Gray took excep
tion to the remarks regarding himself.
Now, if Gray were an unlit person for the
I important olfice of District Attorney, it
: was only proptr that it Republican i.c«s
! paper should point out the tact aud induce
i the party to m.ike another aud better nor
n inatioD. This v>as what G:anct-y did, and
■ for doing so, not in anything like the
■tivii.; t< rms oue is accustomed to in po
litical warfare, Gray met and shot
I him on the street, after inJulging in a
| tirade if abuse. It does not appear that
(ilanciy was armed, or that ho made any
attempt to assault Gray, whose antecedents
I M ■> strett- brawler and oliooter are of the
! mo9t pronounced character. In this mi
' fortunate business, liowrver, one thini;
! mast occur to impartial observer*, and that
iis this, that if this man Gray had been
I duly punished for drawiug his . pi.<tol am!
I tiring at his antagonists upon previou
j occasions, he would have been less likely
! to use it, as he did. with fatal eff.-ct, on
j Saturday l.»st. The lax administration cf
I the law in criminal cases is one of the jn
i ducing causes of the promiscuous assa«sin
j ations which disgrace this country. With
regard to the Santa Barbara homicide,
while we hope that 'strict justice will be
done, the • history of murder ; prosecutions
in that seotiou certainly does not warrant
us in thinking that! this crime will; ba
adequately punished."— [S. F. Tost, Septen>
