Tie Personal Character of Ciiiididntcs
+ A newspaper In DufTalo ban publUbeti
some scandalous charges of Immorality
against Mr CUVKOASD and our esteem
ed contemporary tho Mica IleraM
compares these accusations with tho
charges which aro circulated against
Mr IIliAINC contending that I thc one not
of Imputations is I a proper subject of dis
cussion tho other eel 13 equally proper
1 Other journal however aver that the per
sonal character of candidates is not a thing
which should b considered In the canvass
jr preceding election
Neither ot thoso propositions seems to us
tenable Tho personal character of I cowl
i date I I asubject of high Importance and
I is always right to consider It M
for the charges against Mr BLALNE thoy
r aro matters of public notoriety They wcro
brought up before I committee of tho
4 Honso of Representatives and before
the Houso itself and all th facts
alleged against him appear in tho
investigations and discussions which took
place In tho lou Thero is not only noth
ing wrong In tho fullest examination of theo
thing but it Is I a duty to examine them and
t dwell upon thorn I tha cluiactcr Mr
liniNi will not bear such an examination
ho la not fit to bo President
But tim accusations against Mr CLEVE
LAND are flit produced ou tho eve of a Pre
4 idential election just after ho him been nom
inated They have never been things of
Plbll notoriety but of piivnto scandal I
they wero truo i is 1 fair to Infer that they
would have boon produced and established
Jog na Moreover thro Is rtow no time to
f Inquire Into them und to determine whether
f they are truo or false Accordingly they
I must b dismissed a so much gossip They
4 r cannot bo taken Into estimation in ascertain
ing Mr CusvRiiANnM fitness for tho office
for which be Is a candidate
No accusations produced without legal
L proof after tho nomination of a candidate aro
worth a copper and the publication of such
4 ccusatlons is 1 scandal of itself

Tho Collapse of Ibo Egyptian Confer
cure
i Tho efforts of Lonl GKANVILLC to obtain
the sanction of the Continental Slates to bin
plan for removing tim fiscal embarrassments
vof E ypt have taU il although tho terms ho
ofTcred Imposed Kicntor Kierillcos on Grrat
4 lit italn than on any other power Tha Confer
i ence 1 to udjourn without deciding tint most
Important question mooted and If It ever
meets again will not convene before the
4 autumn when the Egyptian situation Is
likely to bo materially changed
j The Conference was called for tho express
purposo of proouilii tho asrent of the pow
i iuteicskd Lou toiluctlon of he I interest
now payable to foreign boldord ot tho
Egyptian securities comprised in what Is
I 4 known a tho unified debt Tho agents of
the British Government at Cairo who are
4 competent flnanclois and thoroughly ac
i quainted with tho condition of this Delta de
s clare that such reduction is indispensable In
order to meet thn existing deficit which
i amount to 40000000 and to somewhat
lighten the burden of taxation which weighs
with crushing force on the native imputation
There ia i no doubt that had this proposition
been accepted tho Khedives finances
could have boon ruhablUtuUd provided
ot course tho control ol disburse
ments wero placed In honest bands and
that the Egyptian peasantry would havo
been better oft than they have been for cen
T turies provided measures were taken t pr
vent tho tax collectors from extorting any
thinS In excess of tho impost actually laid
Tho provisos named however Imply the
permanent asumptlon of tho fiscal udmlnls
4 tration by a European and this
rton 0 power thi was
the very step Lord GBANVHLB declined t
take Partly from a wish to limit the
te Parly Jmlt respon
sibilities of England and imrtly with tho
aim of conciliating France which vlows tho
British occupation ot Egypt with peculiar
Jealousy ho agreed that If tho Conference
A would ratify the desired diminution of lu
threat the Urltlah troops should Iw with
drawn within a brief term to bo doilullely
flied With tho saiiio motive of disarming
Opposition to his main object bo offered to
permit the Interest now pa > ablo on tho canal
shares purchased from the Khedive hy Eng
land twenty million dollar worth t b
out down from 1 to H per cent which would
involve an annual buying of 100000 to the
t Egyptian exchequer
Thoeo terms were s generous that the
c British Government would have found ox
tremoly dlfUcult t persuade Parliament t
ratify them In advance For that reason Mr
GliAlwroMi evaded Riving udotallod account
ot tho Mlulstrya Intentions until ho could
point t the adoption of IU scheme by tho
Conference ns an accomplished fact Hut tho
Conference has rejected Lord GRAKVILLEH
programme or rather tho only hat ui oof it
9 which would render It endurable by the
rh British nation evinced of courts I cheer
S ful readiness to sanction the proposal to cur
z tail the Intel eat on Englands canal shorts
and all tho Continental
a Cntneut pxiwciv represented
fc BOemed t share tho eagerness of France
L t limit tho stay of the British troops In I
j Egypt I was not unwilling also t ap
prove some minor palliatives of UM prubeul
> ilseal dlOiculty such as I suspension of the
rzI Egyptian sinking fund the ImpoeiUoa of a I
tax upon the property of foreigners in the I
JJIlo volley and the creation of a tobacco m
1 uioQopoly which would sensibly increase
4 h Ehedlvol roveuuM But I refused by a
vote which with the exception of England p
as uuablmoui permit any cortailmrai
uUDhlmoWJo prit a1 clIJt
el the thWrst oft the Egyptian debt or any
reduction of tho land tax on which tit let
clgn bondholders must m lnly depend for
tho payment of dividends on their eocurRles
Itlsposslblo that tho altornaUv expedi
ents recommended by the Conference wilt
place ufflcleut resources at the disposal of
ho Egyptian Government to enable It to
borrow tho 40000000 needed to meet IU
most liabilities But If tho Bavin
mot pressing lab1U ut I evlD
effected by a suspension o thu sinking fund
and tho now revenues accruing from a tax
on foreign property and tv tobacoo monopoly
are mortgaged for the now loan there will
still lo a heavy deficit In tho annual budget
ho income having been for some time 10
ailequatu to lot the ordinary expense of
the Government Including tho interest ou
ho foroltfn debt Thus In a row years tho
utiUo of things will b Juht W bad an It Is
now even If no extraordinary expenses
should bo incurred for a Bouditu expeditIon
or for defending Egypt proper against the
JAIIUI
Tho trim reason ot tho rejection of Lord
OIIANVIILCK plan by the Conference II
loubtloss that tho French 1rcmlor outbid
him The Continental powers regard
as n rich prize which If England IB foolish
enough to drop It Franco would be glad t
seIze But they think that any European
State which is permitted to kcctmio Uio
master of tho Nile valley should do precisely
what Frnncu did In Tunis namely transfer
ho whole native debt to Its own shoulders
It Is probable that M Finuiv would gladly
receive Egypt on thos terms nud It is tho
immlitljro of his readiness to go further
than Lord GIIANVILU that baa led tho for
olgu bondholder and tho States which rp
rcnPiit their IntenstM t resist tim proposed 1
reduction of interest on thu Egyptian debt
Folllicnl Uncertainties
For tho transcendental student of politics
I such a man there bo whoso mind refused
to bo absorbed in thn temporary struggles of
parties awl loves to dwell in the lofty region
of Intellectual speculation a most fascluat
IrA subject of Inquiry might h found In the
uncertainties attending the contest for the
trcdldency which Is now going forward
The K ubllcatM furm tho most compact
and I tho bust disciplined party that has ever
existed In this country I Ii held together
b y tho possession of moro than ono hundred
hou ali ofllcos I has the traditions of
nearly twuntyrflvo yearn of power I con
ducted the war I abolILoil slavery It
reconstructed the revolted States It outran
chised tho negroes I made trit INT rresl
dent for eight years cud then rejected him as
a permanent ruler I tll lnl1 l the result of an
election aud Installed I beaten candidate aa
President Having elected l OAIIFIPCD des
pit itis shameful record It luully iiunilnaloa
BLuE whoso record Is far 103 shameful
than G vrFiniiiiu and 1 big schism Is the
consequence I
But as 1 practical affair how much does
his schism amount to 1 How many votes
will it take from Mr BLAINI and give to tho
Democratic candidate Will It transfer to
tho category of uncertain States any that
have hitherto been unquestionably Kepub
leau Will It oimlilo Jlr CLEVELAND t
carry MossachusettH for Instance I It
strong enough hero In Now York to render
ho Stato sure for rN Will it givo
him Connecticut as I certain thing 7 To all
hnso questions no prudent politician will I
venture to return positive answer Tho real
strength of the Republican bolt is yet a mat
ter of conjecture and probability I U for
midable no doubt but is It
dOlht moro s or as
much BO as tho Liberal Republican revolt of
18j2 which imposed HoiiACcGniaiLET on tho
Democracy as Its candidate I hardly seems
Rnirrent an Affair as fiat and vet the firmnar
n m n
n
Ine may 0 deceiving But lu tnct nobody
knows positively what It will accomplish
awl this Ignorance forms one of the most
pet plowing uncertainties of the campaign
At tho same UrI tho truth must b ad
mitted that as an organization tho llepub
icati party remains unimpaired Its masses
are faithful followerc of Mr BLAINE nud the
ifllccholdurs are all unanimous in his favor
efuly to WOI k for him in tho canvass nnd at
hn polls and ready t 1 the occasion should
favor to count him In nt tho end If cen
tral y to tholr wishes ho should bo beaten
Tho Democratic party on tho other baud
enters into tho campaign under the weight
of a quarter of a century of continuous lie
a iT This alone coifetltukn a considerable
disadvantage I affects the leaders who for
tho tUUt part are without that experience of
administration which In ossenUal to high
skill In politics amid ilnffectH the niasecp
who lack that habit and stcadluoa of die
clplluo which con only bo acquired h
at least occasional success
Mora than this the Democracy are sadly
Weakened by the use that bas been made of
their memorable success o 1882 lu electing
a handsome majority of the House of Rpro
Bentatlvca That Houso cannot 0 said t
nave turned out a successful experiment
I was chosen as 1 rebuke t the prodigality
of the Republicans and reform was expected
from It Instead ot this it b spent
a hundred millions of dollars moro
thin were spent by the squandering
Republican Congress which preceded
tho election of Mr TILDE and within
thirtyOva millions of the worst House
that ever existed A fact llko this Is
not calculated t encourage a groat deal of
hope But his I Is not tho worst When this
House lot its that effort instead of being
directed toward reform was t transfer tho
control of the Domooratlo party from Now
York to Kentucky and Iltlnolsand t change
the timehonored policy of toleration upon
the question of protection and free trade into
an Intolerant and exclusive policy in the free
trado interest 1 pursuance of this plan
Ur CAUJIHWJ was chosen Bpcakcr of tho
house and a reduction the revenue was
attempted under true trade ausploos Tho
whole session was spent In a fruitless effort
to achieve this end Thus nothing was dono
t relieve Lho > oopli I > of thc crushing burdens
of taxation while the whole country was
called upon t odmlro tho Inauguration of I
the new Kentucky and Illinois policy The I I
ptinpln were alarmed by this attempt which
promised to favor the Interests of Biltlsh I
manufacturers at the expense of Amotlcau
workingmen and American capitalists The
Democracy was divided lu two upon this
question and much bitter feeling came In
to weaken and hamper this party
Then followed tho Chicago Convention and
tho nomination of Mr CLKVELAND This
has divided the party again and whIle it baa
not bom followed by any such exteslo pub
lie breach a tho nomination ot Sir BLARE
among the Republicans it I Impossible t
know whether the Democratic bolt 1 or is
not lu reality quite a Important Tho
number of Democrats who will not
vote for CLEVELAND is largo but is it
8 largo as that ot the Repub
licans who will not vote for BLAHIK This
I n matter about which there Is I a great deal
o dispute and little clear knowledge but
largo not alarming or email the number f portentous I 1
The effect of theM divisions upon the cam
palgn and upi llnal outcome forms one of
tbo moat Ifltsrwtlng features of toe whole
matter Oa tits tf hand wn are told that a
jzrtmt deal of no w strength bas toon brought t
I DsMufcXlB jiiilliU la the number of
BcpuMoaM of MM trado r pathle iwho a
going t TOM fo btaawiaie on the other
land we 1 assured that irrtat numbers of
JcmocraUo worklngtnon and especially of
Irishmen whoso predominant passion Is ani
mosity toward England hero boon alienated I
from tho party by this means What tbe fact
I s wo shall know when the returns come t b
counted but scarcely before Influences of
his kind aro apt tOAd In secret
Another element 0 doubt J found in tba
position of Gen BtrrtEB in this canvass
Ha is the leader o A largo body of cit
zons who hold ideas of their own regarding
garding the currency and corporate mo
nopolies and also of o mass of working
people naturally Democrats mainly Irish In
heir origin who look upon BuriiKn as their
special friend anti representative iu all p
Ucal matters Ho had been nominated for
the Presidency by some of those parties and
wont to Chicago to endeavor to obtain for
their views a recognition in the Democratic
platfoim In this ho failed and after pre
senting Ids I Ideas In tho form of resolutions
ADd In a speech of force and ability
ho withdrew from the Convention Wo
suppose bo will presently announce himself
1 in th Hold t b voted for In November
nnd tho effect that his candidacy will havo
upon other candidates 18 i a matter of debate
among political experts Homo think that
It will help CLEVELAND by taking away
from BLAINE votes that would otherwise b
given t tho latter Others think that It will
b fatal t CLEVELAND by bringing into the
count against him many votos that would
no be cast at all If BCTTLBR were not thereto
to bo voted for Bui whatever b the truth
of these opinions there is no question that
ho participation of a man like BITLUI adds
perceptibly to the uncertainties of the result
Tim IrohlbttlonUU nro also a new force
and the liquor question is now for the first
Imo t bear 1 notable part In a Presidential
election Tho Prohibition Convention at
Pittsburgh is In Dan respects a most respectable
spectable body It Is sincere Its patriotism
cannot b disputed and I Is bucked by a
mass of voters that may well suggest
anxiety to tho managers of tho old parties
The lowest Intelligent estimate cannot place
the number of theIr suffrages at lei than
bUrrlAC Lln
hair t a million while the moro sanguine think
hoy will cst a million of votes In some
States this new party will probably hare
power enough to affect seriously the calcula
lons both of Republicans nod of Demo
crats and what Is very striking about It Is
that these voters are lu deml earnest and can
neither bo peisuadod nor bribed out of their
> I > inlous Under ordinary circumstances
these s utll ould b thrown against Sir
CIKVCIAND because tho Democratic Con
vention has adopted a aud
lton ndoJt I manly unequivo
cal declaration against liquor prohibition I
but as they will support a candidate of tholr
own and most ot thorn I
Ind A mOt thor wero originally
Republicans it remains uncertain which of
Inccrln I
time two great parties will be helped and which
will be damaged by their action
The liquor interest forms another powerful
body and it will also bo felt lu the election
In New York lu 1333 it defeated the Demo
cratic candidate for Secretary of State on
he ground that his sympathies were in
favor of prohibition taking 19000 votes from
rim and giving them directly to his Ropub
Ican opponent who was thus elected But
that vas au oxtraotdlnnry circumstance nnd
thIs time tho liquor men brewers and all
will probably do their level best for Mr
CLCVTLANU But will they bo eufllclent t
elect bun I That is the question
It must bo remembered that In this clcc
ton a simple handsome majority will not
answer tho purpose of turning the rascals
out With a macro majority the Republicans
can win but the Democrats must havo at
east twothirds With loss they are likely t
b cheated out ot tholr victory
However on that point there is not much
occasion for anxiety Tho majority will bo
rig enough on ono side or tho other
Time defeated party whether Republicans or
democrats whether BLAINB or CLEVELAND
will b so decisively beatcli that thero will
be no need of an electoral commission and no
reason for tricks In the counting of the votes
I
Tho Value of Experience
At tho mooting of tho Independent Repub
licans Coi T W HiaaiKsox argued that It
is auto t trust the government of tho United
States to a man who has governed llko a
man a State containing onetenth the In
habitants aol oneseventh ot the wealth of
this country Mr CLEVELAND bas certainly
governed the State like a man not especially
interested lu the Democratic party and i is
no wonder that tho Independent Republicans
think ho has had sufficient experience and
boa shown sufficient neglect of his party to
bo called up higher

President of the United States should b

t hold I great pot and to command a great
opportunity for service and distinction But
not all tho men who reach that poet make
use of their opportunity Politics is full of

However the Governor of Now York boa a

I the present Governor of Now York be

It looks as though a considerable but uu

The now Democrats are from some of the
oldest and lost respectable stock in the
country The new BLAIVE reel tilts are mostly

naturalized as citizens Tho question Is
Will tho Democratic party profit by tho
transfer Wo certainly see no reason to
think so
The last eight years hmo seen tho perpetra
tion of the most stupendous crIme In poll

That was tho inauguration of a Fraudulent
President The deed was not only done but
It was uphold and justified I by tho party that
did IK nnil the most nffcntlvn actors In its
consummation were rewarded for their er
ror by their own creature nod became moro
conspicuous aud lulluential among their
party associates than they ever had
been before When the next election
came anti there was nn opportunity to
rebuke the fraud and to ooudnmu its
perpetrators the Republicans who now figure
as Independents instead of voting to punUh
the criminals and tutu them out of office
voted to keep thom in even under a notoriously
riously corrupt candidate On tho other
hand the Democrats who now show signs of
revolt declared against tho Republican vil
lainy and tiled to elect an honorable man for

MBtlrthatbe would write another pamphlet
on tile Questions contained In his Vatlcano

forever The promised publication bas ap
peared today Father Curol won summoned
tOllII d the end of June boforo the Archbishop
of Florence who orders him to atop any pub
lication and to withdraw all hIs theories about
modern liberalism and condemn his own book
otherwise he would have his temporary sus
pension a Uriiif turned Into a regular censure
rffltilaitlca The sentence emanated from tbe
Holy Office with the knowledge and approba
tion of the Pope
The old exJesuit baa completely refused to
submit and by tho publication which today
bas been Issuedhe seems to bravo all the
thunders ot the Roman Inquisition The title
of the now pamphlet ISO octavo pages Is
Lo Soandalo del Vatloano Eagle Duce la

Scandal of tbo Royal Vatican Providence
bringlJig good to something With this tbo
author says goodtry to such polemics
The author reminds us In this new book that
tho capital thesis of bis Vatl anollflglo WM
the orthodoxy of liberal Catholicism lIe doe
not expect to attract public Interest ID his
new work while the liberal aro preoccupied br I
cholera and social and political Question at I
tho end of the Parliamentary term and while
be Catholic encouraged bJl Teutonic snubs
and electoral triumphs are moro and more
disposed to curse an excommunicated liberal
lam which thoy soon trust will be out of this
world Yet ho bones that the comparative
brevity of this new work may secure attention
Many saw a great scandal Carol mars In
that book 1 felt time duty of a publlo retrno
Lion and I made It But as from those errors
seine good has come to religious and ch II xo
ilotyIcall to this point tho attention of all who
believe that religious juestlons mire In seine way
connected with the prosperity and glory of na
tions As the book however was not a scan
dal for all and was not all full of errors and
runny gave a favorable judgment of It their
opinions expressed In private letters to time au
thor are trlven In tbe flrstapuondlx
Thin second appendix Is a sort of apology
for his conduct towanl the Inquisition
Ho declared that weighty roanons oMIeod
his conscience to refuse respectfully but firmly
to obey the Inquisition If his reasons aro
found good Catholic consciences will be ila
lhcri from an Immense deception with greet
advantage for tholr soala If he deceives him
self no harm will come to the world becaiuo
ono man mow was mistaken Men mar judge
him a 1 they llko I God who knows his motives
and the strsngth which supports him will be
merciful to Islam
In the presence of many Catholics who open
ly revolt from the Church WM nocowiory that
ono should offer himself as n rebel Ha Orcllnes
brand the conduct those who think like
him and hate not the courage to say It openly
It Is a fact that the new theories of Father
Curd have divided time Church Lute two camps
Many among the laity are openly with him
many nraonn the clergy secretly These would
join him but nro deterred by four
Father Curd It It well known collected
In February 1871 nearly 24000 signatures
of men born In home of full ate and all en
joying civil rluhts Theso signatures auto
miMis leirailmd by a notary protested rurnlnst

TliU powerful plebiscite which would havo

Father Cutol having gathered these signa
tures with the help also of tho young

the police wont one evening to tho Vatican and
