This is going to be an ideal campaign,

and the character of the candidates is
in a measure lost sight of. Both parties

were content to have slaverv remain un-

molested where it had existed lor ycari.
A small fraction of radical Abolition
ists were in favor of aggression against
slavery wherever found. The Douglas
Democrats were in favor of having the
further extension of slavery settled by
" Popular Sovereignty," that is, by the
actual settlers in the Territory where it
was intended to introduce the institution.
The Pro-Slavery Democrats, under the
lead of Breckinridge and Lane, wanted
to "make slavery National," that is,
give the slave-owner the same rights and
privileges all over the United States
that the owner of horses or cattle had.
The "Constitutional "Union" men,
under the lead of Bell and Everett,
wanted to drop the whole question of
slavery, which was excellent sentiment
ally, but utterly impracticable. These
divisions shaded down into all sorts and
conditions of mind in the 4,062,170
voters who cast their ballots in 1860.
These votes were divided as follows :
Lincoln ......... . .
In 1864, the Abolition element was
dissatisfied with .Lincoln because his
Administration had not been radical
enough, and a great many of the !Doug
las Democrats who had supported him
were dissatisfied at his having been too
radical. The Radical Abolitionists bolt
ed, and. at a convention at Cleveland
nominated John C. Fremont and John
Cochrane, but by September found so
little popular support that the' with
drew their candidates from the field.
The popular vote resulted :
McClellan 3 ,81 1,75-1
In 186S, many Democrats who had
supported the Administration through
the war and many Republicans strongly
dissented from the part7 on account of
the Reconstruction measures, the Con
stitutional Amendments, and other mat
ters growing out of the settlement of
the war. Many thought the Republi
can party, having fought the war through
to victory and abolished slavery, had
fulfilled its mission, and should be
dissolved into its original elements.
Nevertheless, but two tickets were put
into the field U. S. Grant, by the Re
publicans, Horatio Seymour by the
Democrats. The popular vote resulted :
In 1872, the Reconstruction question
and Constitutional Amendments still
disturbed the harmony of the Republi
can party; the financial question was
also beginning to be very troublesome,
aud there was much antagonism to Presi
dent Grant, and very much more to
persons immediate!' around him, and
who represented his wing of the party
in the various States. The "Liberal
Republicans" led by such men as
Senator Sumner, Carl Schurz, J. D.
Cox, Lyman Trumbull, David Davis,
B. Gratz Brown, A. G. Curtin, S. P.
Chase, Wm. Cullen Bryant, and the
editors of the New York Tribune,
Chicago Tribune, Cincinnati Com
mercial, and the Springfield Republican,
bolted, and united with the Democrats
to nominate Horace Greeley. The
" Straight-out" Democrats, in their turn,
bolted their nomination and nominated
Chas. O'Connor, of New York, who
was dear to. the South as an original
advocate of Secession. The popular
vote resulted :
Black (Temp) ......... 5,008
In 1876 the Reconstruction jiolicy
was more troublesome to the Republican
party than ever. Since many Republi
cans were weary of the effort to secure
I the freedmen their political rights, there
was much scandal about " Carpet bag
rule," and there was a growing feeling in
favor of turning the Government of the
States over to the people who lived
there, without anv interference from
outside. The " The Greenback " move
ment had also become a formidable issue,
and, too, personal pieferences as to can
didates divided the Republicans. Jas.
G. Blaine was a rising power, and
sharply antagonized by the Grant
faction, led .by Roscoe Conkling.
Rutherford B. Hayes was nominated as
a compromise candidate, and the
Democrats nominated Samuel J. Tilden,
on a platform accepting the Constitu
tional Amendments, calling for resump
tion of specie payments, denouncing
the Administration, the "Tarifl and
Carpet Bag rule. The Greenbackers
held a convention at Indianapolis, at
which they demanded the immediate and
unconditional repeal of the Specie Re
sumption Act, denounced the purchase
of silver for fractional currency, as
" taxation of the people to enrich
owners of silver mines," demanded that
the Government issue all paper money,
and nominated Peter Cooper for Presi
dent. The Prohibitionists nominated
Gen. Green Clay Smith.
The popular vote resulted :
Total .' 8,2-12,733
In 18S0 the Republican party was
mainlv disturbed over the rivalries of
great leaders. Grant had a powerful
faction, led by Roscoe Conkling, con
testing for a third term. These had 306
of the 756 votes, and held together for
36 ballots. Blaine had 284 votes, John
Sherman 93 ; and Edmunds, "Washburn
and "Windom each a few. On the 36th
ballot all of Blaine's votes but 42 went
to Jas. A. Garfield, and with them all
of Sherman's but three. He received
399 votes, aud was nominated. The
Democrats nominated Gen. "W. S. Han
cock ; the Greenbackers, Gen. J. B.
"Weaver, and the Prohibitionists, Gen.
Neal Dow. The popular vote resulted :
Hancock 4, 444, 952
Dow and scattering
..... 308, 57S
In 1884 there was again a sharp strug
gle among the Republican leaders.
Blaine, Arthur, Logan, Sherman, Ed
munds, Uawlcy and Robert Lincoln
were candidates. Blaine won the nomina
tion, with Logan accepting the second
place on the ticket. The Mugwamps
bolted, and joined the Democrats, who
nominated Grover Oleveland. The
Greenbackers put in nomination Gen. B.
F. Butler, and the Prohibitionists put
in nomination John P. St. John. The
popular vote resulted :
St. John 150,309
Total . . . . 10,052,700
In 1888, Harrison, Sherman and
Gresham were candidates, with the nomi
nation going to Bcnj. F. Harrison. The
Democrats renominated Cleveland, the
Prohibitionists Gen. Clinton B. Fisk,
and the "Union Labor" men A. T.

A most interesting letter relative to
Arizona politics appears in another
column. The writer is entirely reliable,
and the statements can be accepted as
completely true. They show an amaz
ing condition of things in the Territory,
with the old, bitter, proscriptive, rulc-or-ruin
spirit of the Secessionists as
vigorous as ever. All that is wanted ia
opportunity, and it will manifest itself.
It is very unfortunate for Senator
Hill that no one will trust him politic
ally. The Gold men were confident
that he would try to sell them out in
some deal with the Free Silver men,
and the Free Silver men were equally
sure that he had some trap laid for
them to get them into the claws of the
Gold Bugs. Thus character counts for
a good deal even in politics.

The whole thing is very alarming. It
shows a widely-organized, most deter

make that rebellion a success.
It cannot be too strongly condemned.

TnE REBEL GHOST DANCE AT RICH
MOND. Some years ago the people were much
disturbed by tho prevalence of "ghost
dances " among the Indians. At these
affairs the Indians would gather in large
numbers from great distances, and spend
days in " exercises " where the wrongs
done their people by the wliitC3 would
be recounted by eloquent speakers, the
stories of the valorous deeds done by
gallant warriora against the wicked
pale-faces would be told in burning
words for the youths to drink in, the
scalps of slain whites and other trophies
of battle would be proudly exhibited,
the survivors of the doughty warriors
would be accorded the highest honors,
there would be " cheers for the living,
tears for the dead," and all present
woidd be worked up into a frenzy.
These performances became so demoral
izing and so threatening of danger that
the Government finally prohibited them
and put them down by force. It was
in suppressing a ghost-dance at 'Wound
ed Knee that a bloody fight took place,
when Sitting Bull, the Jeff Davis of the
Indian Confederacy, was killed. Since
their suppression peace has reigned
along the whole of the formerly turbu
The performance at Richmond differed
from these only in degree and details.
The spirit and character were the same.
Men and women, professing to be
loyal to the Government and flag of
the United States, met in the Capital of
the late so-called Southern Confederacy
for a three-davs Ghost Dance over the
"Lost Cause." Professing to be glad
that slavery was dead, aud the Union
restored and strongly cemented, they
met to lay, with the most impressive
ceremonies, the corner-stone of a monu
ment to eternally glorify the man who
will forever live in history simply as
the wicked instigator of a rebellion to
destroy the United States and erect on
their ruin3 another Nation, the corner
stone of which should be human
slavery. They lauded to the skie3
everyone who had done much or lit
tle to aid in carrying out thi3 nefa
rious scheme. They brought out all
the old emblems of that terrible strug
gle, and bent in tearful reverence before
them as Catholics do before the remains
of a saint oi1 portions of a True Cross.
Not a thin was left undone to impress
the minds of every boy and girl in the
whole South that incomparably the most
glorious thing in life was to have done
something tp bring about the causeless
war which desolated the land for four
years, aud to have fought obstinately and
persistently to win a victory which would
have secured the disruption of the United
States and the establishment of an em
pire where one portion of the people
would have been bound hopelessly to
unrequited toil for the other. There
was not an expression of regret that the
war had been begun, only that it had
All this i3 exceedingly alarming to
every peace-loving, patriotic man, just
as the Indian ghost dances alarmed the
frontier settler. It looks like the prepa
ration of a mine, which may explode at
any time, and spread distress and ruin
all around. If the lessons which were
taught by the Ghost Dance at Richmond
mean anything, if they found lodgment
in the hearts of the young people of a
section comprising nearly one-third of
our country, the future of the Nation
may well fill every loyal heart with
solicitude, if not actual dread. What
may happen when the time conies for
this seed to blossom and bear fruit?

Confederates In tho Territorial Saddle
Editor National TnimjSE: The depos
ing of Gov. L. C. IfngheiTby President Cleve
land and the appointment of B. J. Franklin
as his successor as Governor of Ariznnn, is a
culmination of a struggle which has been
in progress in Arizona for nearly 20 years.
Hughes wa a veteran Union soldier, Frank
lin a Confederate soldier. Ilujjlirs went to
Arizona in 1870 on account of hroken health,
partly the result of hard service, and entered
the practice of law. In 3S77 he commenced
the publication of the Star, the first Demo
cratic paper published in Arizoun. Ho was
a leading spirit in organization of tho Demo
cratic p;irty in the Territory; and the party
at once controlled the politics of the Terri
tory. But no sooner organized and its strength
discovered than the Confederate Democrats
determined to control the party, aud nomi
nated all of the principal candidates from
that element. Hughes rebelled, and openly
declared that the Northern Democrats
should have equal representation as long
'as ihey represented half the party. This
caused the starting of an opposition paper
to Hnuhes. But, to hold the party togetler,
the Northern Democrats were recognized.
Tho fight was then directed agiiust Ilughfs
with tlie determination to drive him out of
the party. No less than six daily and seven
weekly papers were started by the Con
federate element, all of which had to sus
pend, until now Hughes has a clear field.
Every time Hughes has been a candidate
for the National Conventions, the Confeder
ates have fought him bitterly, simply be
cause he has been a lcidmg G.A.K. Demo
crat. They openly declare that he ha-i no
right to be in the Democratic party. He
has twire defeated them. He was the
Chairman of the Arizona Delegation at
Chicago four jears ajjo and cast ihe Arizona
vote for Cleveland. This gave him the Gov
ernorship of the Territory But ii3 soon a
he In-camea candidate thirj element was vio
lently opposed to him, with three excep
tions being those who wanted his assist
ance to Recti ro places; but as soon aa they
were appointed they opened war upon their
benefactor, and when asked the reaiona
why, they stated they did not propose to
all tv a Yankee to be Governor of the
Territory, and, uniting with the saloon and
gambling elements, tney carried on a moat
malignant war against Hughes, which they
declared they would continue uutiLa South
ern gentleman wus appointed to succeed
Then they demanded that all of the im
portant appointments be made Irom that
element of that party. Hughes answered,
he would make an equal distribution; this

Marshal and the Secretary of the Territory
being Virginians and bitterly hostile for
the light. Grand juries were parked, and
the majorities were Southerns, or enemies of
Hughes. Trumped-up charges were pre
sented, hut without avail. Then they ap
pealed to the Southern Senators; theState
lioc.d was Hearing lor Arizona, aud if Hughes
was allowed to remain Governor, that cither
two Yankee Democrats or two Republicans
would be elected Senators. This appeal
brought them strength.
Secretaiy Smith was appealed toon same
line, and when Hughes demanded an inves
t igat ion of the charges against him, he asked
the President, to send a Northern man, or at
least not a Southern or a Confederate Colo
nel. The investigation was made, but by
two Cou'ederatcs, who were in the hands of
the Southern element during all the time of
their visit; but notwithstanding all this,
Himhes met and demolished overcharge.
It is worthy oi notice that during Himhcs's
ndministratidii there has been a reduction of
the cst of maintaining the Government of
the Territory in every branch of trout 15 to
25 per tent. As an illustration, the Terri
torial Prison was reduced from i3 cepts per
capita per day to 53 cents per capita, and
every institution improved and the service
greatly enhanced. This is admitted even by
Hughes's enemies. DuV the war was kept
up. and a nearly all of tho Federal ap
pointees in the Territory vere Southerners,
their sympathy was with the open enemies
of Hughes, as they wished for a Confederate
Aud without a word of notice Gov. Hnghe3
was summarily removed ou March 30, and
D. J. Franklin appointed, and until this day
Gov. Hughes has not been given as much as
an intimation of the cattj-e oi the President's
action. Hut the light of 20 years has been
won by the Confederates. They have tem
porari'y defeated Hughes, the Yankee sol
dier as they aiieeriugly call him. They have
placed in his stead a Confederate soldier
who has only been living in the Territory
three years, never paid a cent of taxes to the
Territory nor did one thiug in the interest
Now there nre but three Northern Demo

Confederates the entire Supreme Bench
and the Judges of the District Courts, the
United States Marshal, the Ilevenue Col
lector, the Customs Collector, the Secretary
of the Territory, aud Indian Agents; a
swarm of hungry inspectors and special
agents 'mostly Irom Georgia and Missouri,
and now they have topped out the whole
business with their Governor.
It is said that the last Democratic victory
for many years to come will have been in
the past, for the soldiers and other Y'ankee
Democrats won't be dominated by that ele
ment of the party who were disloyal to the
flag of their country ; and while they are
willing that they shall participate in the
benefits of the party, they cannot control it
entire with them in tho ranks; hence the
future will be watched with interest.
