William H. Wrbb waa ont' of the founders of
tko Baloo Lcaane Club, of which he ls still a" prominent
member, acd bc has always taken an active and patriotic
tnterrat tn public affairs, although he has never been a
politician and baa always resisted all solicitations to take
office. Mr. Webb ls a member o? the Council of Reform
to this as tn other way* ahowtug his desire to better the
condition of municipal govertiinent. Ile was found by a
reporter of Tua Taincsm yesterday at Tarrytown looking
after the construction of a private road through his es?
? I have been out of business fifteen years." he said.
and tn the city got tired of lielng called
on so often to attend to public business and other peo?
ple's business, and so settled myself hera. You want to
know what I think of Mr. Blaine and his chances of In-lng
alerted Presidcntl Well, alt down on this rock?there's
a pleasant prospect hereabouts?and I'll tell you. I was
In the habit of going to Washington a good deal twelve or
thirt.en years ar<v. and there saw much of Mr. Blaine. I
formed tn -n a very high opinion of his ability, statesman?
ship sud patriotism. I have stnee watched his course
rl'*x*ly and hate found no cause to change my opinion I
am warmly in f*vor of Mr. Blaine, aud always hare fa?
vored him since he was first put forward for Ike
l>e*l-.leri.-v Ile hue the qualities of lcader?hli> lie ha*
la au eminent degree, tn mv judgment, the ajamttloa that
would couti I" him lo asaknagood President, strong, up
ftaht. far-seeing and efhclent. I bcllsvi n, will give ns a
Ive admlniMr-ition with notntng weak or Magnum about
lt ll?-!i.\ h. will rive us a foreign policy winch will
largely luerea.*e thc foreign trade nf this country, and
esi>eeliUly the trade with thc Pouth American st:it?e. Wc
ought to get nearly all of that trade, un I if Blaine
ls elected Pretddent I believe all will be done that a wise
aad powerful Admlniatratlon can to secure lt. and io
oblate for us a dominant laflueoce with th..?c states.
" It waa not throue-b the polltletaas thal Mr. Blaine rot
the nomination . lt was because the popular demand for
him waa eo strong that lt could not be resisted by the pol.
Meian*, The great rank aud Hie of the Republican party
wanted him and they will elect him bv a large majority.
Certainly. I believe that he will cariy New York, and I
believe the business men ot New-York will whee) Into
line in hts fuvor. as will also the Vnton league
Club. There ls a growing sentiment there ia
BU favor. Arthur was the first choice In the
main because he was a New-Yorker. Blaine
ls kaowti io be strongly In favor of protection; Boars
most of the workiug me'u ; and on that account be will
get s large share of their support, and will even,I believe,
rant ure many l>eraocratic votes, certainly more tuan Ar
t li ur could.
" These slanders on hts character 1 Well, I don't think
they will hurt hiss. He bas dispoaed of them quite as
aiicccasfu'ly ** did bcuator edmunds, than whom there
lenoliody for whom I have hUber respect. But he ls
most valuable in the Senate. I would rather have him
there tba* Blaine. Blaine's right place is In the White
House. I.very good Republican ought to vote for him ;
those who bolt and boast of their lilting are practically
voting for tnv Ileniocratlc candidate. But despite them

The Ht*v. Dr. Thoma* irani angil. pMtOT of
the Hftb Avenue Baptist Church, f*atmda9 expressed
himself strongly in favor of the Bepuburju PrcaiUoutial
" I do not understand." said he, " how those Independ?
ent* who were delegate* to the convention can withhold
their support of thc til ket. Hail they announced in the
convention tbat tney were dissatisfied with the nomina?
tion, and withdrawn; had tiny announced their purpose
then lo uonJnate an opposition ticket, their action would
be consistent. Bul the nomination of Mr. Blaine was
made unanimous. Thc platform of the convention was
assented to No opposition was made to the ujinluation
Of General 1/nran. and his aomlnalion was mad** unani?

their respective districts to represent them at the con?

their objections to thc ticket. It seems to me they are
bound aa honorable men to support mat ticket. I do uot
aee how they car. do anything ebie.
"Mr. Blaine's nomination wa*, such a development of
the real wish of the people of the Republic tu party as, lt
seems to me, has rarely taken place in thc convention of
any party. When Mr Beecher, who ls a good and earnest
Republican, says he intends lo sta-nl by the Republican

be can do lt. I wish he would tell mt -not that I waut to

BlJOi C'ivk, L. I., June 18*? Miss Ida Z.
Mon: fort, the beauty of this charmin* little town, ls still
disconsolate. Her recreant awain, KIwood D. Lincoln,
who was to become her husband on Wednesday afternoon,
ls *ri]l beyond the reach of her charms, and the lona:,
maple-bordered lanes, reaching out on every side of the
village, where Ida and Elwood not lon* ago wandered m
the sweet carelessness of young love, look forlorn and
even sad st their loss. Ida is dtsconsolste; but
thst ls all. When she first recovered from
the shock of being forsaken, she?so to speak?
went on eating bread and butter. She haa been ta deli?
cate health for some time, but to-day her disappointment
seems to have acted like a tonic, for she was plucking
daisie* when a TniBi.mt nporter sawhei.and on her
checks was the full nch celor characteristic of healthy
...untry (iris. Elwood, had he seen her to-day, would,
have res-retted his sudden departure.
But there ls a sad explanation of Elwood's exit from
t-S presence of his bride, and lt ls an explanation
tliat leaves uo stain ou his honor. He ls pro
Bounced to be suffering from mental derangement
by his father, Mr. Lincoln, the proprietor of The Olen
Cute Gasette. About two years ago Elwood went to Den?
ver, (ol., where he waa ernployod for a short Ume to his
complete satisfaction. While there be contracted the
habit of smoking cigarette* and became so much addicted
te lt that he could not break hlmaelf of lt. At frequent
intervals wltbiu the past tlfteen months he has acted
strangely, and on two occasions tbe elder Mr. Lincoln be?
came so alarmed al his son's condition thal he resolved to
send bim to a reformatory. In the early part of
1 -~:i Mr. Lincoln Informed the lier. Dr. Williamson aud
Mr. Montfort, the father of the young man's sweetheart,
about hts son's condition and they expressed their deep?
est sympathy. Witnin the last six months Elwood be?
came convinced tbat every person tn the tittie town was
interesting himself in his affairs, and be told hts father
that he must seek a new place to make hts livelihood.
< Bj May 22 hi; went to Washington and obtained a posi?
tion as a compositor in the Government Printing Office,
tint so erratic bad he become that he left Washington after
two days' work and returned here, B> brought with him
a delusion that he had been commissioned by Terry
Belmont to buy bis father'* uewspaper. anil also au oppo
-itiou sheet Balled The Kr ho, tor the purpose of cnnsell
d.iting the two into an Independent newspaper. He had
hardly breeched this topic Ea hi. father when he remem
bered that le had left his overcoat and umbrella in Wash?
ington, and he took the next tralu to that city to get
them. " B
lt was at this time that he seut out invita?
tions to hts wedding, Inviting perseus with whom he
was only ellrhtlv aciiu-ilm?>d and neglecting his
Beeron Mends, upon lils return from Washington he
appeared cheerful, and theo told Ila father for thc first
time tint he Intended to marry Kim Monfort. Ul
told him that he had a targe amount of money in checks,
with which bc intciiped to buy The Eeko. on last Mon
day murnini: he left hit father's printing-office hurriedlv,
?aym* be was going to Hew-Yon lo make th.- _aal ar*
rangenumta ter the purchase. He returned that night,
after calling on au entire stranger in New-York and
demanding 1300, aud offering hij uaiue as the only
security. On Tueedav morning he again left Glen Cove
with not over flo in bli parse, ead since then he ha* mu
been beard from. Mr. Lincoln offered a reward or ?.">(>
foratiy clewasto tue whei-eniiouM of his sun. He had
recs veil no response thia evening. He ti net dis?
heartened, however, for he thinks that Elwood has gone
Favorite rfty. Washington, and has in one of his
aberrations of mm! forgotten entirely ai. jut the wedding.
.Mr. I.me.i!u, when ' called up in bj tin*
nporter. -aid that la tawed that his
sou was wasdertngtalmleasly alu.ut Liing Island, or
between New-York and Washington. ?? i han never
ed to nr. ion's marriage to Min Mon r,rt." con
t inned Mr. Lincoln, " but I fell afraid of the i onaequencea
because of my boy'e poor heall! and Miss Mob
health. My son waa not In a condition to ninny ths girl,
.md her father knew it. I do dot kuna .m.- or th- latnliy
t Mr. Montfort, and do not knew him wei;, inn [
made no opposition to the marriage ne my son seemed
to desire it greatly. I attribute all this
trimble te nothing more tuan clgan tte smoking, should I
not hear'rom hun to-morrow morning. I intend to have
general .camm sent out lu New-York and Brooklyn."
Mr. Montfort bi boo?heeper and oaahlei of the lumber
department of Duryea*! itara! teeney. n? glared over
the top of his high desk at the reporter to-nbrbt, aad
when asked if ne would permit the marriage to take place
in cs*e nwood returned he replied: ??So slr!"
Mi. Montfort Bald this with so much emphasis thattt
attracted the attention "f his Batts tan rs and they
iornie.1 a conlon ab ur him aa though to
gund aud protect him. Mr. Montfort would say uothing
It is the general sentiment among the villagers that
Elwood ia not ho iierange.l .?> ht* father wouhl like to
have it believed that ha is. The Impression ls that Mr.
Lincoln objects to the match on pecuniary grounds, us fie
ls thc proprietor of the 'largest printing establishment in
thi.nun. .uni his son's prospective fatber-ia-law ls
simply d clerk. Ail this, however, Mr. Lincoln denies,
and he looks nervously out o( the window every time he
hears tS? wheels of a carriage, hoping against hope that
kia mm ha* retained.
It was learn-d that yonng Lincoln called at tho office
of ( oloncl Kobert Townsend, lu Wal-st., New-York, on
Tuesday. The Colonel was out at the time, and Lincoln
saled bia brother fnr a siuuli loan. The brother, not
having thc amount asked for. requested Lincoln to walt
until the colonel returned. 1.lue.,.n appeared nervous.
and only remained a ftw minutes, saying that he would
return ta half ao lour. "If 1 bad been lu the office,"
il Townsend said to-day, " I would have given him
any reaeoaabie amount without tbe ?cratch of a peu.
t am nuable to account for his peculiar esmhtet."
Miss Carrie H kl. tis young woman who was supposed
at first to be the companion of tb Lincoln midi

was her fondest admirer. The noys of the village intended
ort the twain to their honan with tha accompani?
