The CloTcland Scandal.
Tho facility with which campaigu
?landers are concocted is one of the ssd
dest ard most painful features of Ameri
can political life. As soon ns a man
reaches any position of prominence he
becomes al once a target for the thousand
arrows of calumny, and be is happy, in
deed, if the flying darts do not iuflict
wounds that will forever after rankle and
that will poison the springs of happiness
during the whole period of natural life.
Grover Cleveland, tho Democratic can
didate for the exalt d office of President
of tho United States, has nol escaped the
common lot of public men, nnd to day
there is going tue rounds ol the lower
cla?s of Republican journals a shameful
story in regard to his private life and
moral character. The story is that he
seduced, under promise of marriage, one
Maria Halpin, a saleswoman in a Buffalo
dry goods house ; that he deserted this
woman and her offspring, and thut
finally, wearied with her importunities,
he had her seized under circumstances of
great brutality and conveyed to a private
asylum, and that after her release from
confinement he compromised with her
family hy the payment of $500, and thu?
tho matter was dropped.
As if tho Halpin story, with all the
devilish ingenuity of its concoction, with
so many apparently corroborating cir
cumstances, waa not bad enough, the
authors of this vile story add to it the
assertion that Cleveland had been often
found by the police of Buii'alo in a beast
ly drunken condition : timi lie was guilty
of habitual immoralities with women,
and that ho consorted with blackguards
and loose women, drinking and fighting
in their company.
If it could be believed for one moment
that these charges were founded upon the
truth, then it would ho felt that (/rover
Cleveland was indeed a moral leper,
totally unworthy of the support of
Christians, or of any people with any
pretensions to decency, and the demand
for his retirement from tho ticket would
come in thunder tones from the Demo
cracy of the land. We could not a (lord
to jeopardize the just and righteous causo
of tho peoplo hy countenancing the can
didature of any such man.
But the chargo is a lie on its face. Is
it conceivable that these things could
have happened in the city of Buffalo,
nod have been matters of common report,
and that then tho citizens of that pince,
without distinction of party-Democrats,
Republicans and Independent.-;, church
going and non-churcb-going people
should have united together as ono man
nnd bestowed tho Mayoralty of tho city
upon tho low blackguard that tho actor
iii such tcencs as Cleveland is described
ns figuring in must have necessarily
been? The supposition is a monstrous
nbsurdity and an insult to the intelligence
of the American peoplo. If these accu
sations are true, then the morality, of
H?dalo must indeed havo been at a low
ebb, and tho citizens of that place, tak
ing them collectively, worse even than
the man on whom their highest civic
honor was bestowed.
Just about the time thnt Grover Cleve
land, according to this dirty campaign
lie, was wallowing in filth and iniquity,
we find him submitting to the City Coun
cil of Buffalo the following letter in re
gard to the perils of children and espe
cially of young girls on the streets at a
late hour of tba night :
BUFFALO, June 5, 1882.
My attention has bees called, by a
committee, from the Society for tho Pre
vention of Cruelty to Children, to the
number of small boyn nnd girls found
upon the streets in the night.
I have renou to believe that many of
these children are allowed, and some aro
obliged, by their parents to thus remsin
in the streets for tho ostensible purpose
of earning money by selling newspapers
or blacking boots. In truth, however,
after a certain hour in the evening, the
most, if not all the money they receive,
they obtain by begging or by falae pre
tenses. In the meantime they are subject*
cd to tho worst influences, leading direct
ly to proflgacy, vagrancy and crime.
.Tho importance of caring for children
who are uncared tor by their natural
guardians, or who are unmindful cf pa
rental testratnt, must be apparent to all.
In the future, for good or evil, their in*
fluenco will be felt in the community;
and certainly the attempt to prevent their
swelling the criminal class is worth an
It seems to mo that no pretext should
be permitted to excuse allowing young
girls to be on the streets at improper
hours, since the result must necessarily
be their destruction.
The disposition of the boy (child
though he be) to aid io bis own support
or that of others in an honest, decent way,
ought not . to be discouraged. But this
docs not call for bis being in the street
at late boura, to his infinite damage
morally, mentally and physically, and to
tho danger of society.
I respectfully suggest that this subject
be referred to the Committe on Ordinan
ces aud the attorney, and that a commit
tee from the Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Children be invited to co
operate with them io an effort to frame
an ordinance which will remedy the evil
GROVER CLEVELAND, Mayor.
This letter indicates a solicitude in re
gard to female- virtue not at all in keep
ing with the vicious character that has
.boen given to Grover Cleveland by the
Republican journals that repeat tho slan
ders against his good name, and this,
taken into connection with thousands of
incidents in the career of the man, give
the lie to the damsging reports against
Considering the phenomenal populari
ty of Cleveland and the haudsumo sup
port that his own people have given bim,
it might hardly seem necessary for any
Democratic journal to take the trouble
of defending him ; no defense would seem
necessary : But lest it should be said that
the story is being covered up and that
Democratic papers are afraid to publish
it, wo have given our readers toe sub
stance of it. It is ? pitiful matter, and
one that shows how much of depravity
goes in with politics and how unscrupu
lous are those who will go any lengths
for party purposes.-Columbia Etguter.
Who Can Tell I
So mo years ago there was a young
physician in Texas who was loved by all
on account of his gentle, loving diopoti
tion. Among bis moro numble but not
leas devoted admirers was a mocking bli tl
that had been born and raised it? hts
gardes; Tba bird took the greatest fancy
to him, and when he returned home in
the evenlDg would bop round bis front
steps and then fly to a tree near-by and
sing for boura at . a time. Tba bird ap
peared to be io an ecstaoy of delight
whenever the doctor was at home. Fi*
. nally the yellow fever broke ont here, and
among others, tho doctor was stricken
down. He lingered fer long days and
then died.- On^tbO1 night before bis death
tho watchers by his bedside had their
attention attracted by tba mournful, Rob
bing notes that the "doctor's bird" (as
they called it) uttered throughout the
night. The next day, the doctor died,
and (hut night tba bird was silent. Af
ter the. funeral tho family opened th j
room to air it; nnd when tba bed was
drawn adido tho first thing seen was the
mockingbird lying at tho.head of tho
bed, dmd. How. U got there no one
knew, but there it was, dead, aa though it
coul? not survive ?he ono. it loved so well.

not over-exacting ; but ho doea not havo

tad. Tho stranger who comes to trade
with him, if he is a merchant, may like
the quality of bis goods, and may not
dislike his prices; but the situation,
nevertbless, will become uncomfortable
in due limo ; and before ho knows tho

To the politician, tact means often a

A art is never doubted, or the skill of

who bas tact docs not let it de?ert him

Suartuiiburg, fi. C., March 13, l%u ,
Your most valuable medicine (Swifti
Specific) has done nie so much good thin
feel like Baying this for tho benefit of tw j
who suffer like I did. I was poisoned to
poison oak, and saw not a well day for A
yean?, until I used Swift's Specific. Inti,
sis yean ! used e.'most every kind oi m<&
cine, but none had the desired effect. Ai?
using six bottles of .Swift's Specify I ts
restored to perfect health-with notating
that awful poison left ! Youjst?uv
I had for thirty-eight years suffered erm
spring and summer with Poison Oak. whki
I contracted in bathing when a boy. I
tried everything for it, including DUM
physicians, hut withou; any benefit, i
took six bottles of Swift s Specific (8.8,?l
four years ugo, and it cured me sound ul
well. Three summers have passed, andi
have had no return of it.
, JOSEPH BEASLEY, Columbus, Ga.
I have had remarkable success *hl
Swift's Speciii?; hove oured several asa
permanently in a very short time. Ou
case which 1 am now treating wasgivema
to die, and after using three bottles is tout
recovered that I think one more bottleti
cure ber. The most remarkable case ol til

I will soon bo cured.
