,fPir. 4; When the Mugwumps bolted the nomlna-
ItS) tlon of Ulai.ne in 1884 they were influenced
JjR by nothing except tbolr enmity to him per-
" J tonally. They found no fault with the plat-
! ' . form adopted by the Republican Conven-
, tlon ut Chicago which nominated him.
', f" Their representatives there had voted for It.
, i They kicked over the party traces because
they disliked Blaink nnd not because they
if v dissented from Republican principles.
i ! For personal reasons only they also went
- over to Cleveland. They supported him
as a man and not as a Democrat, proolalm-
4' 5 '08 always that they advocated his election
. in splto ot his nominal partisan associations,
j I and his running on the Democratic platform
v contrary to the Republican platform, for
y j which they had voted at Chicago, "Clbve-
i L . 1Ad is a platform in himsolf," they said.
"He Is better than his party."
R l Thus the Mugwumps Introduced ft new
t w principle Into our American politics, a prln-
I 5s ; clP8 utterly at variance with the theory
! J t t of our Government. They cast aside
r I t' party government and went in for personal
j X ! government, They were not for any body
K A tf I' ' Ptlco doctrines expressed by a party,
hwSl) ' but for an individual, a "ruler," as thoy
V r called him, without reganl to his political
K I opinions or afflltations, Wliothor Cleve-
M','l t LAND hod been nominated by the Democrats
ff Al I or by the Republicans, they would have sup-
II M 1 ported him all the same; and on whichever
1 'Mm ticket Blainb had been nominated they
Jll I would have opposed him.
JgHaC That Is, the Mugwumps started out to
WjHWmv ohange radically our system of government
vK Bj and to pervert it. They attempted a polltl-
jBKlBt cal rcrolutlon ; and Clbvklakd, their bene-
'.SMSB flclary, from that time to this has assisted
t BhjmH them with all his power to accomplish their
tBfljJM malign and treasonable purpose. lie has
I mPlt sought to "rule," and has disdained the
1 W Mi . principles of the party which put him Into
I Bft flj office. Accordingly, the Mugwumps, reBn-
jWi W forced by Democrats whose allegiance to
BBMKBJuB), lm penooally he had purchased by polltl-
BBBBBBrl cal favors, devised a plan to give htm an-
BBBBHc other, a third terra, in the White House
BBnHBJRl as a "ruler" congenial to them, Mr.
BBKBm W Bataiid spoke of him as such In a speech
BBJHB In England, in which otherwise he Insulted
HB1 the American people and assailed American
BBBBJB B Institutions. Tho scheme for a fourth
BBBB fl nomination of Mr. Cleveland was prepared
BBBBJ fl H with the assistance of members of his
BBBjB fl I Cabinet, He himself encouraged It by his
mmmmmmmW!STlTeaef'1'
t :
silence. It was a common snbjtot of con
versation among the Cleveland Demo
crate, as they were called, or the Democrats
who favored the revolution for the subver
sion of our American system ot govern
ment and the substitution of personal gov
ernment by Mr. Cleveland.
The revolution at Chicago Is a counter and
directly consequent movement. It has
topped the third-term movement. It has
dsfeated the conspiracy to commit the Dem
ocratic party to the monarchical principle
of a personal government. The Democracy
were swindled In the election ot Mr. Cleve
land in 1808, and in 1800 thoy havo re
venged themselves against the swindler.
They have burled beyond all hope of resur
rection the obnoxious, traitorous, and de
structive personal government theory
brought forth by Mugwumpery in 1884
and represented by GnovKit Cleveland.
That Is the one good of the political revo
lution at Chicago this woek; but in their
madness the infuriated Democrats have dono
more than smash the abhorrent Clevelandlsm
and destroy the monarchical conspiracy.
Thoy havo laid violent hands on the Domo
cnttlo party itself.
No Third Candidate I Standi To
gether. The political reasons for not putting up
an honest-money candidate this year on n
genuinely Democratic platform are strong
and obvious.
Tho nomination of another Democratlo
candidate would contribute to tho personal
comfort ot Democrats who are reluctant to
voto for Mr. McKlNLET, hut It would ac
complish nothing else. And this method ot
voting for a prlnclplo only would surely
Imperil the result In many a close State.
Better far to vote for prlnclplo in a way
that will count.
The voting strength of the rcpudlators
and revolutionists is a positively unknown
factor. It will not bo known until after
November 8. It Is unknown not only In tho
States whero Us strongholds are supposed to
be, but It Is likewise unknown tn States
commonly rockoncd as safe for sound
money; in our own State, for example.
Peoplo may talk this way or that way
about tho number of their fellow citizens
who want to see tho hideous Chicago plat
form enacted at Washington, but until the
votes havo been counted nobody can talk
with knowledge. The electoral vote of no
State among the forty-flvo should bo risked
by a mistaken policy this year; the stake is
too tremendous.
Every Democratic vote cost for WILLIAM
McKlKLEV as the representative ot honest
money and the nation's honor and tho
preservation of demooratio institutions
against tho wild horde now preparing to
attack thom, will do just twice an much
servlco for tho common cause as can bo done
by a Democratic voto for a third candidate
standing no chance of election.
Lot every Democrat who appreciates the
magnitude of the present crisis keep this fact
steadily tn mind : His voto for McKlNLET
and IlODAItT is worth double his vote for
the best Democrat that the Bane part of the
party could put up as a protest against tho
iniquity consummated a t Chicago.
Is there any sincere Democrat who, under
standing all that the election means for our
beloved country, is willing to out his voto in
two this year; to deprive his ballot of one
half its efficiency t
It will bo said that there are such Demo
crats. It will be said that there aro Demo
crats who can persuade themselves under
no circumstances to cast tbelr votes for any
Republican candidate for President. Per
haps that is so. Let them register their
protest against Chicago by refusing to vote
for Presidential electors. Let them concen
trate their oartlsan enthusiasm upon the
State and local tickets. They will help in this
way to defend the nation's honor and the
continued exlstenceof the institutions which
the repudiators and the revolutionists are
assailing. They will help, It is true, only
half as much as It they voted for McKlNLET
and HODART, but they would help not one
particle, more than that by bestowing their
votes upon a Round-money Democrat nomi
nated for the sake ot tbolr personal com
fort and political consistency.
On the other hand, there are hundreds of
thousands of Democrats, If not millions of
them, who see in the present crisis a call to
duty only less urgent and Inspiring than
that which summoned to tbo front thirty
five years ago our patriot citizens, and made
tbem almost forget, as they shouldered their
guns and fell Into line for the Union,
whether they had previously styled them
selves Democrats or Republicans. These
men. In the absence ot a satisfactory Dem
ocratic candidate on a sound platform, will
not consent to surrender one-half of tho
potency of their suffrages for the sake of
over-roflnod ideas of political consistency.
They will want to put their votes where
their votes will do most good as against
Populism, repudiation, and national dis
honor. They will fire their ballots straight
at the common enemy, even though the bal
lots be labelled McKlNLET.
It would be a piece of political folly
amounting to crime to divert the attention
ot this class of Democrats from the main
question, and to jeopard the result of the
election, by setting up Inopportune claims
to a partisan allegiance which, In an emer
gency like this, is nominal at the best
Mass every honest American voto on one
candidate representing honest money, the
nation's honor, and the intention of this
peoplo to preserve the Government and the
Institutions which their fathers handed
down to them. Waste no ammunition when
Populism is shrieking its battle cry, and
Anarchy la lurking close behind in tho rear
with torch In band.
McKinlrt'b personality Is nothing in this
contest. His previous political affiliations
are nothing. Accident has deoreod that he
shall stand for the time for something a
thousand times moro precious than any
party badge.

The Socialist Labor party, in the delibera
tions Incident to Its third National Conven
tion for the nomination of a Presidential
candidate In this city on Thursday, was
overshadowed by the gathering of another
National Convention, part Socialist and part
Democratic, for tho same purpose, In the
city of Chicago. Nevertheless the Socialists
were not diverted from their purpose by
a rival In their field. They nominated
CnABLES Matchett, a Brooklyn carpenter,
for the office ot President, and Matthew
Maodibe, a Paterson Alderman, for Vice
President. Matchett is a native of Bos
ton, Maquiiie is a native of New York city.
The Socialist party is strong In New York
and New Jersey, but the alien and sectional
character ot the political propaganda of the
Socialists Is shown by the fact that both of
Its candidates were chosen not merely from
neighboring States, but, In fact, from neigh
boring cities within neighboring States, and
without any pretence of observing thoso
geographical distinctions which It has here
tofore seemed proper for all political parties
In the United States to respect In choosing
Presidential candidates.
The Socialists here seem to hove proceeded
on tho theory that their colleagues In the
Western States and Southern States would
bo supplied with a candidate In Chicago, and
that it was, therefore, not necessary for tho
Eastern Socialists to accord thsm any rep
resentation upon the ticket. Matchett had
been nominated by the last Socialist Na
tional Convention for Vice-President on
Aug. 28, 1808.
For Governor of Now York the Socialists
havo nominated (they hold their conventions
on tho approved Soclallstcooperatlvo plan)
a Brooklyn houso painter who has pledged
himself "to paint the State red" during
the coming canvass.
No Blank Cartridges t
Since tho Chicago platform protec
tion has ceased to be an issue. That
platform contains a perfunctory approval
of a tariff for revenue, but Insists upon post
poning any change in the tariff laws until
the freo colnago ot silver has boon brought
about If Major MoElNLBT continues to
dwell at length and more than incidentally
upon protcotlon, ho will be slashing at

not attacked.
Sound money, tho integrity of the Su
premo Court, opposition to the income tax
and to the whole threatening and dostruo
tlvo programme of tho Populists and Anar
chists who have stolen the name of the De
mocracythese are the Issues, salient and
iuescapahlo, of tho campaign of 1888.
Talk about protection, undor the circum
stances, Is more sounding brass and tink
ling cymbaU. Major McEinley has It tn
his power to bring to his support many con
servatives, who havo not coased to ba Dem
ocrats In principle, but who will not follow
the mere badgo and symbol of Democracy
when thoso aro only covers for tho red flag
of anarchy. The preservation of tho
credit, tho good faith, tho honor, and pros
perity of tho United States tran
scends all party Interests. Tho hopo
of tho friends of honesty rests with tho Re
publican candidate. Either ho or tho An
archist candidate will be tho next President.
Whether there Is to be a genuine Democratic
candidate In the field or not, the good wishes
and hopes of mos) Democrats will go with
Major McKlNLET. He Is not fighting Dem
ocrats and tariff for revenuo only men now;
ho Is fighting Populists and Anarchists,
sllvor maniacs, men seeking, consciously
or unconsciously, a financial and social revo
lution. What is tho use of trying to fight

Scorchers.
Porsons who hoped for tho disappearance
of scorchers when the summer came aro
still hoping and scorchers aro still scorch
ing. Tho weather thus far has seemed
to make their craze more vigorous
than ever. It has been said that
not more tbanen per cent of the casual
ties caused by scorching are reported in the
newspapers, and this assertion will not bo
questioned by any one taking an hour's
stroll on ono of the principal cycling ave
nues ot this town.
For months tho courts have fined and
lectured these riders sharply, but many
ot them yet believe that the task of deter
mining a wheel's speed is too great for a
" copper," and they are willing to risk po
lice intervention. Tho recent opinion of a
Now York Magistrate is that a sound
spanking would bo the best punishment.
Possibly the heat yet to bo felt In the
next two months will do more to curb
scorchers than fines or licking. Wo com
mend to the notice of such riders the fato
of ayouug man in Derby, Conn., who died
a few days ago from the effect of scorching.
The scorcher must quit or succumb.

At tho Chicago Convention old precedents
were case asldo and old traditions trampled
upon, prior to tho platform's declaration of
revolutionary principles. At the startlt was
clear that tbo Democracy was free of re
straint by old-fashioned methods, - and
without respect for the Democratlo spirit
and for the rights of minorities which
those methods had served to maintain. It
was mob contemptuous of the pnst.
When we look on the wreck of Democracy
now before us, the damage done by the
National Convention ot 1802 is scon to bo
greater than it at first appeared. When
that body, also In a state of frantic- preju
dice, nominated a candidate against the
protest of the party organltatton of his own
State, and spat upon tho primary Demo
cratlo doctrine of State individuality nnd
consequence, It blindly pulled up one of
Democracy's bower anchors, and now all
have given way and the ship is adrift
When will she come to port again f Never,
unless the crew now in charge of her is cast
out. And the first step toward that deliver
ance, rough and strange as It may seem, is
to elect William McKinlet.

You bet 10 to 1, and refund tbe one, it Is. Not
only is It Ilka the fire that burnt over the

TbeauuropUoa that the young meu ot thn South
are following the Dourboas tnlo (ho camp of tho
Populltts Is not sustained by any Information obtain
able at this Ume. It was the sutemont of the Wash
Inston tost that the young men all over theSouih
were advocating free sliver. Jlr. A. W. llutt. Wash,
tnston correspondent for the Enntno iUst, wrote to
the Washington JWI;
"Iteferrlus to your statomtnt that most of the
young raeu tn the iioutU are folloMtiK tho ex-Cuit
federates In tlio free-silver movement, I bee, as one
of the former oIsjvj, tbstynu will give my statement
some credence when I assert, with sume knowledge
ot the South and Its people, that the joung men in
tbe South, generally speaking certainly those In
Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ueorgla, the new men In
poll llos are for sound money.
w IX the Cbloago Convoution declares for the free
and unlimited eolnate of sllveratlUtol.lt It from
thoyouncrucnof the South that the old Democratlo
party would suffer lu most terlout losses."
Tbe lUohnoni Timtt takes up this maltertn relation
to (he ex Confederates and the youug men of the
South, Of the ex-Confederates It says;
" Wa rather think that If the Confederals soldiers
were polled, while the 'gold bugs ' among tbem mutht
not be as numerous as tbo 'free colaers.' they v,ouM
outweigh the free coluers In Importance and con
stderatlon of their fellow citlsent. The hopeful,
struggllog young men that we meet vtlth are, almost
to a man, opposed to the Idea of colulng DO oents
worth of tUver and making a tredltor take II for a
dollar. It It wall fur the South If this be true, audirr
young man will yet redeem her If they remain stead
fast to suob principles."
A number of tbe most earnest advocates of a sound
financial system throughout Uio bouth are ea'ou
federate soldiers and leaders In tho days of tho Con.
federacy. It Is not lbs ex Confederates, but the
Ilourhon element among the ex Confederates, tbe

Albahti July 10, The State Railroad Com
mission has mado cubllo Its decision and And
lngs regarding tho accident ooourring to nn
open car on the Thirty-ninth street hltl track,
operated by the Nassau Electrlo Itallroad Com
pany, In Brooklyn. The aoctdont occurred on
Sunday afternoon, Jnne 7, when the trolloy
pole ot the car became dotaohed from the wire,
and the car backed down the hill despite the
efforts ot the motorman to stop It. One pae
sengsr, a boy, was instantly killed, and an
other, a woman, died in the hospital several
days aftor the accident. In addition to these
fatalities, a numborof passengers were more
or less injured. There were 133 persons on the
oar, many ot them standing on the side steps.
In Its deotston the Board says:
"While the Immediate cause of this acci
dent was the trolley wheel leaving tho wire,
the Board is ot the opinion that the primary
canso was tho overcrowded condition of the
car, whereby theconduotor was prevented
from reaching the rear platform tn order to re
place the trolloy wheel or assist the motorman
in applying tbe b rakes. The officers of the
company claimed that the motorman did not
Arst apply ths hand brake, but tried to stop
the car by using tho motors, and that while
making this attempt ho reversed tho power,
thus adding to the speed of the csr tn its de
roent of the hill, and thereby contributing to
the accldont,
"Ths Board finds that the ovtdence dses not
substantiate the els Ita. On the contrary all
the evidence adduced at the Inquest goes to
show that as soon as the trolley wheel left the
wire the motorman applied the hand brake,
as ho should have done, and that for some
reason unexplained, nnless on aoconnt of over
loading, the brako did not hold the car. The
motorman then endeavored to stop the car
with tho motors, and at some point on ths
way down the hill, the precise point thn Board
Is enable to determine, he did reverse the pow
er, but suoh act In no war contributed t the
accident.
"Tbe Board has repeatedly recommended that
pas-angers be prohibited from riding on tho
front platform of any electric or cable car,
and In granting permission tn ooerniu by elec
tricity or cable this condition has been made
n part of the order of tlio Board. This recom
mendation was made with the knowledgn that
on some open cars theie la a seat on each tmd
facing tho end of tho car, and that the prohibi
tion would keen pasaenirors from occupying
this scat on the front platform.
"Slnco then, hovtover, larger cars have loen
ooiiBlructed, with mnr apace on the plttfornis,
and If the numbor allowed on tbe front plat
form of an oncn car Is limited to the number
that can be comfortably Heated, say five, on
the cars of tho Nassau Hue. the motorman
would not be tn'erfered with. The Hoard, there
fore, modifies Its prevlout recommendation to
this extent, rrcommondlng that not more than
five persons be allowed on the front platform
of the large open cara of tne Ka-iau Company,
or of any othor company operating cars alrnt.
lur In sire and construction: that those porsons
ba required to bo seated, and that when the
limit It reached .ho motorman bo Instructed
lo close both gales of the front platform.
"This Is not Intended as any modification nf
tho previous recommendation of tho Board so
far n closed cars aro concerned,
"It is further rrrommonded that on all lines
of electrlo or cable railroads In this State rav
eengors bo absolutely prohibited from riding
on tbo running boards or ldo slops of open
cars, nnd that cars be not allowed to proceed
eo lone as persons aro standing upon either of
tboHe steps and refute to get off the car or

"The Hoard also recommends tbat the brakes

The Board of Health moved before Juttloo
Lawreuco of the Supreme Court yetterdav for
orders of condemnation and tbe appointment of
commissioners to appraise tbe value of anum- .
her of ramshackle rear tenements considered a
menace to health. The houses are at 21 Wett
street, 30 and 30H Baxter ttreet, S40 to 254 and
308 to 310 Mott ttreet. Tbe owners ar Edward
Le Hoy Steward, Antonio Curreo, Frederick
Dassori, and Timothy Harrison.
The motion was opposed by several lawyers
In behalf of the property owners, who claimed
that chapter 07 of the laws of 1895. under
which tho proceeding was taken. Is unconsti
tutional. The lawyers woro CoudertBros., Man
& Man, Tillotson & Kent, and Frederick D.
Foster. Henry Slclnert represented tho Board
of Health.
It was contended that under the act It wat
south t to take property without giving in re
turn ita market value. While the bultdlngt
were to be removed and tbe owners were lo bo
prohibited from erecting other buildings In the
tame placet, ttlll no award would be made for
the land which tbe owners were thus prevented
from using. Where tbe buildings were euch
that they could not be repaired. It was contend
ed that the city was Illegally going to allow for
the brlckt and wood only.
These buildings. It was tot forth, stood there
lonir before some of the buildings which It is
leclareu are now deprived by them of the ease
mentaof llfihland air, and to have prior ease
ment rights, and tho act Instead of taking pri
vate property for publlo purposes would take
private property to benefit theownersof adjoin
ing private property. Then It was argued that
the act was Illegal because It provided that
Commissioners should pass upon the values,
whereas the owners had tbe right to a trial by
Jury.
