Final Conclusions The " Union "
and Its Editor in the Case A
Great Victory "Enthusiastic Ebullition,-"
Sacramento (Cal.), August 26.
Before finally malting a start over
land, and what with other matters, I
concluded to stop over here and wit
ness one of the representative meet
ings of the present political canvass
for State officers, and now rapidly
nearing a close the election coming
off September 6th.
It is safe to say that the affair of
last evening, in the waj of the vanity
and vexations in politics, was a gor
geous success. 1 have expressed a
dislike to these things, and a doubt as
to their absolute necessity ; but if they
must be, why the bigger and louder
the crowd and noise the better. In
view of the facilities afforded by tele
graph and type, for reading and di
gesting in quiet all that is fresh on the
political tapis, the average statesman,
when he struts into the business of
platform enunciation, isn't much less
than a public nuisance abatable by
law. Privately, he should be tied to
his stump and the whole set on fire.
The thousands of men, women and
children that were justled about in
the streets last night, losing the usual
rest required, was illustrative of the
point. It was not uninteresting, how
ever, to listen to the whistles of the
coming trains from the Sierras, from
Marysville, from Yallejo, Stockton
and Shingle Springs, and the recep
tion they met in the way of artillery
flying about from one depot to an
other, the music and Ithe shouting.
Then the tramp, tramp of the pro
cession, with torches, transparencies,
etc. Then the herding into the street
corral to receive with mouths Avide
open, the mess of rechewed feed and
wind; the women and misses, with
heads and feet exposed from hundreds
of windows and balconies lending for
the time a life-like appearance to the
architecture surrounding, in bold re
lief. Then the slobbering about the
saloons, and after midnight, the re
forming necessary to the return home.
It was the occasion of Newton Booth's
speech, with others, at his old home.
Owing to the great crowd, there was
nothing to all this except a great dis
play and confused noise. Booth is not
a great man at all, but is a much
abler one than his opponent Henry
H. Haight, the present gubernatorial
incumbent and the 'probabilities arc,
as before stated, that the Republican
standard bearer will be elected by
from 3,000 to 5,000 majority.
Now, a word here about these men
who brought them thus before the
public, and why. The agony of the
day is the anti-subsidy policy or re
fusal to grant further aid and comfort
to all monopolies, but particularly
railroads that has been manufac
tured almost single-handed by The
Sacramento Union, Avhose " thunder
ing " emanates from the brain and
pen of Samuel Seabough, and has
been heard unceasingly and until it is
heard all round the sky. In fact, it has
become political infamy if not death
to all who attempt the roll of Ajax
and defy. ,the blinding flash of this
newspaper chain-lightning. I have
watched the. thing boil for the past
three years, and it has not been an in
significant study in State politics. In
short, The Union's attacks on the Cen
tral Pacific Eailroad Company have
really seized, upon the nation itself.
This paper has walked over the track
with a great war-club, as it were,
mashing one head after another in
either party, until it has nearly com
pleted its mission on this score ; for I
repeat that a reaction will follow all
this, and I think soon after the com
ing election in this State, though it is
not probable the corporations will
ever again have so open a field as in
the past. But to the point. The
Union deliberately defeated the Re
publican ticket in 1867, and elected
Haight. It has as deliberately re
nominated Haight, in the face of every
Democratic opposition, and then came
out in a loud " leader " entitled " Vic
tory Number One." It then took up
Booth, and in spite of all Republican
opposition, nominated him, and fol
lowed with its " thunderer "of " Vic
tory Number Two." Now, it firmly
believes it will have the pleasure, of
announcing a fortnight hence, in still
louder tones " Victory Number
Who is this man behind the scenes,
more powerful than thi mass of the
popular talent of the State, with the
great accumulated wealth combined?
Samuel Seabough, a native of Penn
sylvania, and one of the most agreea
ble conversationalists and pleasant
gentlemen to meet in California ; the
" heaviest " political writer, and one
who can do the most of it and enjoy
it. His smooth-shaven, intelligent
face, bright eye, and generally prepos
sessing person, with human weak
nesses and his own worst enemy, are
the chief characteristics of his outline
in every day life. The slight lisp in
his speech seems to set it off in a fas
cinating way rather than otherwise.
Liberal to a fault, and a pleasant good
word for whoever, high or low, may
have ought to say to him. He has
the world's affairs philosophized down
to a scratch, and when his pen drops
from the harness, he will turn the
final corner of it all with a joke, and
the obituary and his reward will all
be summed up under the caption (per
chance "small-cap" head) of "A
Prominent Journalist Gone." But the
work of such men never die, though
their bodies may have often suffered
for the common necessaries, and the
dirty world they instructed or amused,
may refuse them decent sepulchre. It
is curious to contemplate the life of
an able and well fixed newspaper.
Last week several . hundred men of
means in Sacramento protested pub
licly by signature against the course
of this paper toward the Central Pa
cific people. The Union treated them
with scorn, and already their effort is
good as forgotten. It looks over the
entire field for its sustenance, and will
flourish when its founders as well as
its enemies are all dead and gone, and
I like to meet Seabough when he
has any leisure at all, and night be
fore last I besieged him in his den.
Talked over the Apache question, etc.,
and got his private opinion of the po
litical mill here. He has always a dis
tinctive way of expression can state a
common subject in a new" light, the
want of which qualification is so gener
ally observed among even leading
speakers in public. He said that this
excitement about Booth was not worked
up by money, but was a " spontaneous
ebullition of enthusiasm," and there
fore would do to bet on. This morn
ing's paper comes outwith a " leader"
using the words quoted, and in con
nection with the monster meeting last
night, it certainly has a significance
not generally felt through these
means. There is but little gambling
on the result as yet, though s far as
the papers show, the odds are offered
by the Republicans, who are as united
as ever they are, and working at least
up to the ten-hour law system in this
case, though both platforms are sub
stantially similar on all questions.
" Platform jugglery," as The Tribune
calls it, is as broad in- the one as the
as the other ; both parties stultifying
their records in important features al
together amusing, and more or less
disgusting. But that is the old thing,
to a certain extent.
To recur to The Union again. I
picked it up not an hour ago at break
fast, and was completely sickened by
the report or rumor (hope, it is such
only) telegraphed up here, from Los
Angeles, that General Crook had been
killed ! Knowing bis style so well, of
hunting and fishing, etc., at intervals,
when every other man would be tired
to death almost, I took occasion at
Tucson to just give him " a talking
to " on the subject, and I have watched
with bated breath every word about
him since. He has had such a long
experience of frontier life exposing
himself to all its dangers wherever or
whenever duty in the least demanded,
besides never letting a reasonable op
portunity pass whereby he could a d
this knowledge of wood craft, that he
may have overstepped the mark at
last. Still, I won't believe it till com
pelled to. It is sad enough to go East
on account of another death in the
family, and this good man was once
almost a father to me, and the con
firmation or contradiction of his death
must follow instead of accompany
VINCENT COLYER REPORTS.
The following telegraphic news
reaches us via The San Diego Union,
which by the way always contains the
latest important news from all parts
of the world. The report of Agent
Piper is mainly true, and we suppose
he meant to be truthful, but the run
ners undoubtedly misrepresented some
points to him :
"Wasiungtojt, Sept. 4. Vincent
Colyer has written a letter to the Sec
retary of the Interior, dated Fort Craig,
New Mexico, 22d August, in which he
says he had several interviews with
messengers from Cachise, but they
gave no satisfaction, and chances of
bringing that chief to "Washington are
very slight. He appends the following
to his lettter :
Canada Alamoso, August 21.
Nathaniol Pope, Esq. Dear Sir:
Mr. Trijillo has just got in, without
seeing Cachise. He says he very
unexpectedly met General Crook, who
ordered him back, and refused to rec
ognize his authority to go to Cachise's
camp, and threw his letter down in
disdain, saying that the Superin
tendent of Indian Affairs in New
Mexico, or any of his agents, had no
authority to send parties into Arizona ;
that his instructions authorized him
to capture any American or Mexican
found in his route. He also says they
attempted to arrest his Indians, but
Lieutenant Ross knew Saco, and in
terceded for him. Crook would not
let him get his rations, which were
some distance from where he met the
party. The General said they were
lucky to get back with there lives,
without rations. If you return here,
I think the affair should be investi
gated further. Yours truly,
C. F. PrrEit.
"When we declare that no attempt
was made to arrest said Indians, we
declare what Ave know to be truth, and
although Ave have no information on
the matter about the rations, Ave feel
justified in denying that part of the
report. General Crook did inform
those runners that he could taKe care
of the hostile Indians in his Depart
ment, and to so inform their employers.
He Avould not permit them to be
harmed, but did inform them if they
returned to Arizona to interfere Avith
his clearly defined duties, that he Avould
not be responsible for their lives. "We
are too avcII acquainted Avith General
Grook to believe that intercession of
any subordinate officer Avould change
his purpose, because his purposes are
always based upon a clear perception
of duty and his OAvn high sense of
justice. The reports about the rations
are absurd and Ave have no hesitancy
in pronouncing them false.
As aAvhole, the report is a good ono
to go before the country, and Vincent
Colyer did right in making it. It
Avill all the sooner bring to a close the
bad policy of having the military or
dered to punish hostile Indians, and
the civil authorities ordered to make
the task impossible, by calling in,
feeding and protecting the blood
thirsty savages Avhich the military are
