co-laborers , of the Republican party,
ana filled -fcfc joxlouey and hate of
uioso w n j hve standing without
his aid, his rounivance or consent.
Mr. Bin ne w prtian, and a jealous
ana a bitter one, a mere politician
who believes in schemes and tricks,
in coi ubioiitiortfl and bosses, and the
rewar.Maef iparty. lie is not states.
Qau rven of a secondary order. Dur

Senate he 'Was wnfronted by Conk
... 3ing again, and besides him by pher
man and Edmunds, and many other
' iRepublicuns compared with whom he
' measiired only a pigmy's Btature. As
' retary of State in Garfield's Cabi
net his brief tenure was marked by a
cheme, the insolence of which is re
called as ' colossal, and which Mr.
Frelinghuysen, his successor, made
haste to explain, if not apologize for.
Mr. Blaine's placo in the real history
-o"f ur time in, therefore, very small.
- As Secretary of State he may be nien
"tioned in connection with his stu
pendous folly--that will be all. A
showy man, he has always appeared
on stump or plutform, in CongreRsor
-sOabinet, an a sensationalist, counting
on every occasion "for all lie is worth"
of ability -cr of words, and while very
.picturesque and striking, very attract
ive for the moment, he has never
risen to such hights in his party as
Edmunds, Sherman or Conkling have,
nor has he impressed himself upon
-the cultured cIurscs of tho country as
-anything but a charlatan and pretend
er. : Dwarfed to himself, to a personal-
ity so shallow it eould not be expect
ed of liiin f.hnfc - he would write dis-
passionately of fns contemporaries
nd partisuu besides it won not
to tic hoped for that ho would
rise abovo his . partisanship and
truit of men and events related to an
other era or eras, as sequences in the
history which humanity unavoidably
makes in its march to the ultimate of
its destiny. His narrow view of the
civil war and those who were on the
Confederate ide prove his inability
to consider history as the science of
related and sequent facts. His
highest view of the historian's duty is
the justification of party and the gloiT
fication of self. His waving of the
Moody shirt in the Senate, his most
t(.')ial ellort in that body, was a piece
of bravado carefully calculated to ele
vate him in the popular esteem above
the statesmen whodominated the Sen
ate and to whom his party looked with
respect and conlidence. In tho same
spirit of self-seeking he made the Pres
idential campaign of 1885 a sectional
one, regardless of the probably in
jurious effects uponithe country, which
had been enjoying a season of repose
from sectional animosities and bitter
ness, under the administrations of
Hayes and Arthur. Mr. Blaine has
never been able to rise superior to
: the circumstanres sjid surroundings
' of his early Congressional life.
He i. was then uand still is
.a sectionalist, not because sec
- tionalism can bring jiy. good to the
t country .but because ,jt is easier for
.him to rearouse pu.ssiun.aild prejudice
than originate measures, of statesman
like policy that will liclp the people in
their efforts to advance the Union be
yond its .own, the highest level yet
reached by- civilization. And yet, by
the despotic and arbitrary , power' of
party, he compiled the Tt'-publioan
fltatesinen and thinkers to ifollow his
lead, and cu&re within a few . hundred
votes of sucess. It was . a narrow
escajie for the. country, an escape that
-thousands of LVpuhlicam are grateful
for, now that tl.ey realize the.l.onesty
.and sincerity vf Cleveland an l feel
the stedinens oi his liandaaiitK'rior
And safe guide. But withal this, and
-.notwithstanding, Blaine is still .to be
.accounted among the chief forces and
;ii.jin,ji uie lM'L'.nnican party, lie
3s to be, if notuing more, 8Hver
for mischief ,and mitJeadiug.
His book is put forth as nn electirei
ieririg docuuient tint will keep him
hefoi-e the people until the time for.au
active campaign cokics round, when
he will doubtless take the stump again
and revive the sectionalism that is his
only stock in trade. Unfortunately in
this he will find comfor. counsel and
sustenance in the records of the last
campaign in Ohio, where John Sher
man prejudiced his position and de
tracted from his powers as a states
man by stooping to iil't the bloody flag
into position again at the head of the
Republican column. But if, as has
Ixh.'!! hinted the past lew weeks, Conk
iing enters the Senate again to ln-come
the real leader of the Republican party
the ambition of Blaine may be foiled
once more and finally ami forever.
A most desirable consummation for
every section, and every interest of the
- republic. ' ,

Since my last letter giving a running
account of the politics and politicians
of the State, as they at that time ap
peared w me, 1 have come into posses
sion of additional facts sutlicieut to
enable me to sneak more explicitly,
and I shall endeavor to give you the
result oi my investigations impartially
and dispassionately. A great many
visitors from various portions of tho
State have been in the capital during
me past week, ana 1 am convinced
that the cumiuiign, w hich may fairly
be said to have just opened, will be
one of the hottest the State has known
in a quarter of a century. All of those
now serving the people in Congress
will be opM)sed, and so much bitter
ness has been engendered on account
of the distribution of offices that the
party is fur from being solid. The
Republicans are foil of bono of being
able to use to their own advantage the
mistakes ot democratic members.
And, indeed, the disposition to oppose
those at present holding office at
Washington extends, by a sort of sym
pathy, to every office in the gift of the
people. In all of the counties of the
State the Democratic "ins" will be
opposed by an in usually large and
powerful array of Democratic as well
as Republican "uts." The most care
f ul and intelligent effort will be re
quired to heal the wounds which have
been inflicted and to bring tho party
to a sense of the necessity for thor
TUB MRST DISTRICT,
which is now represented by Petti

Pettlbone is a candidate for re-election,
and will be opposed by Roderick
Random Butler and Walter Brownlow.
The two latter, it is said, are detcr-
i : . ' i . i
iiiiuuu, ii ueccsnury, w coiuuiue uieir
forces to defeat fettibone. In fact.
the chances are that none of them
will secure the nomination. but that it
will be carried off by Judge Hacker,
by far the most popular Republican in
the district. 1'here is no st raight out
Democratic candidate, but Col. James
White of Rogersville, who is a Demo
crat, will probably run on a temper

e will almost certainly be a
change. Nenl is a splendid young
fellow, nti It vflTlie touth on him to
have to step down and out before he
lias an opportunity to do anything.
The crop ot applicants for office in the
Third wastremcndouR.and thev could
not all be satisfied. The fact that
Neal lost ground two years ago will
also lie against him. Cleveland car
ried it by .700, while Neal's majority
was only sixty-eight. Chattanooga
will put out several candidates, among
them Judge Bradford, Judge Dodson,
H. Cliff, and W. C. Payne. The
strongest man in the district is Judge
Bradford, and he will be likely to se
cure the nomination. He has been
chancellor for the last twelve Years,
and is a capital mixer. Clay Kv.uis of
Chattanooga will probably m:'ive the
Republican nomination, though M.iyor
Sharp of that city will give him some
hard work to do. Sharp is the prince
of wire-pullers and hopes to capture

of late years has been run without

ably go in without, opposition. Ho
was opposed last time by Walter
Smith, .and only aboulhalf a vote was
polled, out he defeated Smith badly,

that liH-uard Warner of Marshal will

cellent showing. While a Republican,
ne. is a origin fellow and very popular.
THE SEVENTH DISTRICT.
The atmosphere of the -F-eventh is
already becoming sulphurous, but Ral
lentine's friends promise to stick t
bun, and not only secure his nomina
tion, but incrtase Ins majority, which
was about 000 last time. Ba'b'entine,
it will le remembered, was Whit-
thorne's choice,, when the latter found
it would lie impossible for lain to
soevre the nomination. He could not
get (he requisite-t.vo-thirils "rote -over
Cox, and threw his strength to Batlen
tine. Whitthorne ,anl Cox want to
try itiigain, and same vigorous wrk
will be clone. The Republican candi

Hughe of Columbia.
THE EIOIITH DISTRICT.
It is uot safe to make a prediction
altout the Kighth District, In spite of
powerful opposition it is by no means
certain that J. M. Taylor's hold can be
broken. Gen. Campbell, ouce a lead
ing figure in theState.it is believed
has allowed golden opportunities to
pass l.y, and w hile he may earry his
own county, cannot hope for the
nomination. I hear that he talks
about taking the stump for prohibi
tion. One trouble about Compbell is
that he is too Bourbon in his views,
and is not conservative enough for the
times. B. A. Knloe of the Trihmu
and Sun is a clever fellow, and has lust
no strength. Ho is making friends
every day. Bob Cole is talked aliout,
but no one seems to know whether lit
is a candidate or not.
IN THK NINTH DISTHUT
Glass will have some Hwcrful opssi
tiou, us might have been expected
after the memorable tight which re
sulted in his nomination. He will !

others, and nearl, everybody from

being defeated ii. the convention,
made so vigorous a campaign for

The number of candidates for the
Supreme Court will be very large. Six
teen are already out, six from Kast,
six from Middle ami four from West
Tennessee. Those from the Eastern
division are: M. T. Haynes of Sulli
van county, S. J. Kirkpatrick of Jones
boro, II. II. Ingersoll and W. A. Hen
derson of Knoxville, J. B. Cook and
1). L. Snodgrass of Chattanooga.
Middle Tennessee will present tho
names of Horace H. Lurton of Clarks
ville, E. I Gardenhire of Carthage,
John D. Bright of Eayetteville, John
Erizzell of Nashville, and also Judges
Cooler and Turney.
est Tennessee candidates: Cald
well of Weakley county, Koikes of
Shelby, besides the present incum
bents, Lea and Freeman. In the list
I have just gone over there are five
members of the Referee Court -Kirk
patrick, Snodgrass, Gardcuhire, Frii!
xell and Caldwell. I understand that
there is some surprise among the
friends of Freeman that Caldwell is a
candidate in view of the alleged fact
that the latter owes his position on
the Referee bench to Judge Free
man's influence. Caldwell does not
seem to be at all disturlied, however,
and among the younge r members of
the bar has a great many friends. Sev
eral whom I have spoke'n with claim
that they can name at least three of
the next judges, one from each divis

I venture to predict that there will be
almost a clean sweep. It is generally

he will be the next Governor oi Ten

New Yoio;, February;;;. Folks who
happened to meet the wind yesterday,
when it was humping itself for the
eighty-four mile mark, felt as if thev
had run up against a brick wall.
Kightv-tour miles is hurricane speed,
and means a pressure of AM pounds

carries so much more sail for the hur
ricane to work on. It sw ept along and
across the streets and avenues in tierce
gusts, hurling showers of dust and
gravel in the fact's of lH'destrians.
It w hisked lints off heads and hurled
them under the wheels of vehicles to
lie crushed or cut to pieces. It pro
jielled east-bound cross-tow n cars with
such swiftness tbafMrivers could stop
them only by a v "orous application
of the brake; it pinned the drivers of
west-lound cars against the doors; it
smashed glass in car windows, un
hinged signs and shutters, and snapped
off poles. Ferry boats were driven
out of their course, and the light
sjiars of vessels in tlie hartior were
broken, Unretawled across the desert
of. City Hall Park, the gale madly
cavorted and made existence very
lively for the people who passed the

At low wuter,3:30o'clock last evening,
the surface of the rivers was ten, fif

ran down at an angle of nearly forty
five degrees. A crowd of passengers
in an Eighth avenue street-car were
surprised when they saw the roof of
the car suddenly lifted off and sailing
over into Central Park with the liell
puneh attachment trailing behind.
Telegraph, telephone nnd electric
wires were blown down in all parts of
the city. Messages were received by
all telegraph 'companies in the city
subject to two or three, and many
places, four hours delay. Repairing
the wires was rendered impossible, as
the linemen were unable to stand
upon the cross-arms of the poles. Ad
venturous people who crossed the
Brooklyn bridge on foot, wished they
had not when they got about half way
over. They were seen by policemen
clinging desperately to the ironwork
to keep themselves from involuntarily
following Odium. The bridge was
transformed into (huge -Eofnm harp,
