We regret to notice the desponden

Mr. Bassett of the Hekalli said this Bern*
Ins at an early hour,"ir they«only nominate
Hendricks for Viee-PresidenfTbe devil him
self can't beat the ticket." We can only re
mark that the latter gentleman Is not run
ning on the Republican ticket.— RejnMicun.
The gentleman in black is not, per
haps, on the ticket, but if we may
judge from the oppression and misery
the Republican party has brought up
on the people we are justified in say
ing that a couple of his favorite lieu
tenants are running on the ticket.
Men sometimes work for years to
accomplish a certain purpose, and dis
cover just as the end is attained that
there is nothing in it. When one de
sires to kiss a pretty girl, and after
much time and persuasion obtains
the coveted favor only to discover
that she has abominable breath, there
is a perceptible feeling that the reality
hardly equals the anticipation. Some
such sensation will, we think, glide
along tbe spinal column of tbe propri
etor of the San Francisco Chronicle in
a short time. For the past eight
years that paper has been fighting for
the Associated Press dispatches, and
now when another Association is
furnishing more, better and later dis
patches for less money, the Chronicle
is admitted into the Associated Press
Why Bristow Was Not Nominated.
Said an intelligent and over average
fair minded Republican the other day:
"It is plain to all *hy Bristow was
not the Cincinnati nominee. He
meant reform, and reform is just what
tbe managers of tbe Republican party
do not want." This is as true as Holy
Writ, and it is this truth that has
created feelings of doubt and distrust
in the rank and file of the party as to
the honesty of their leaders. Bristow
is an honest man, and it was this lare
characteristic among Republican
leaders that forced him from President
Grant's cabinet. He found knaves
in high places. He discovered incom
petent and dishonest officials plunder
ing the people, and he inaugurated
measures for freeing his department
from this class of men. This brought
about a demand for bis resignation.
He was a cabinet officer of the old
school, and his notions of honesty
were not at all in accord with the pro
gramme of the administration. He
believed that the people had rights
which should be protected. He be
lieved that public officers were public
servants, accountable to the people
for their acts, aud he believed that
when an official proved himself dere
lict in the performance of bis duty
and dishonest in handling the people's
money, he should be called to account
and, if found guilty, dealt out the same
punishment that is inflicted on every
ether thief. For entertaining these
old time opinions Bristow was
thrown out of the cabinet, and because
he would not renounce them be was
refused the Republican nomination
for the Presidency.
Tilden and Hendricks.
Now tbe people bave a prospect that
peace and prosperity will once more
revisit their homes. Now there are
indications that retrenchment and re
form will be heard of elsewhere than
in party platforms and campaign
speeches. Now there are grounds for
hoping that the time is approaching
when our nation's credit will be re
established, and hec power and re
spectability once more acknowledged
among the civilized nations of the
world. It is now a foregone conclu
sion that Republican control of our
government will cease on the fourth
of next March. The nomination by
the Democrats of Governor Samuel
J. Tilden, ol New York, for Presi
dent, and of Governor Thomas A.
Hendricks, of Indiana, for Vice
President, is a guarantee that tbe
days of misrule and of criminal waste
and extravagance are numbered. The
declaration of principles as embodied
iv the platform is an earnest of the
task to be performed, and the two gen
tlemen whose names head the Demo
cratic ticket are men in whom the
people have the utmost .confidence.
The ability and integrity of Samifl
J. Tilden and Thomas A. Hendricks
are known aud recognised from Maine
to Florida. The masses arc proud of
these men; they believe In them and
will elect them. Tilden and Hen
dricks are reformers in principle as
well as profession, aud they have the
courage and honesty to practice what
they believe. Governor Tilden has
saved the people of New York forty
millions of dollars, aud as President
he will save the people of the United
States hundreds of millions of dollars.
After the fourth of next March we
shall have an honest and economical
government, and such a government
insures reduced taxation and peace
and prosperity to the people.

been sent to Mr. Hendricks, urging
him to accept the nomination lor Vie-
President. An answer is expected from
him this forenoon. If he accepts lie

The Republican thinks the selection of
Tilden will insure a victory for tin-

thinks the Democrats could have tak
en no surer course to insure the elec

John Kelley of New York took the
platform and said that he had worked
strenuously against the nomination of
Tilden. He had done this because he
believed the party would be stronger
inthecoming contest with a Western
man. The Convention had decided
differently and he yielded to that de
cision, and no man would work hard
er—and he had a eanacity for work—
(applause) than would he for Gover
nor Tilden's election (cheers). He
had great admiration and respect for
that pure statesnfan, Thos. A. Hen
dricks, with whom he had served in
Congress twenty years ago (great
cheeriug). Mr. Kelley continued at
some length, paying a tribute to the
service of the Democratic House of
Representatives for their action in ex
posing the corruption of the Adminis
tration, closing with an appeal for har
mony and theirs would be the victory.
Kelley was quite hoarse from his hard
work of the past week.
Judge Hanna of Indiana followed
briefly. He said the contest was over
and the tomahawk was buried now,
and the old guard of the Democracy
would move to the front in solid col
umn to achieve the great work of re

He was in favor of the part reqviring

Hon. C. M. Preston of Kentucky and
New York, June 29.—The Herald
editorially, referring to Tildeu's nomi
nation, says: He never held an im
portant office till elected Governor of
New York less than three years ago.
He never was In Congress; Hever held
a position of trust under the federal
government. He lacks experience,
and yet by his extraordinary capacity
for politics he has distanced all com
petitors. Tildeu's nomination is not,
however, equivalent to his election.
He is undoubtedly the strongest and
most popular nominee the Democratic
party could have made. The chauces
for his carrying New York are doubt
ful. If he wins in this State, he wins
everything; if he loses this State, he
loses everything. With is own party
divided, and the Republicans alive,
adversaries thoroughly united, with
the full influence of federal patronage
exerted against him, and the discour
aging effect of the probable Republi
can victories in the Northern States,
Tilden enters upon the unequal con
The Herald congratulates the coun
try on the fluancial plank of the plat
form of both parties and says we shall
have a safe administration aud steady
progress towards specie payment anil
business prosperity whether Hayes or
Tilden carries oft* the honors.
The Times says Tilden's nomina
tion means that the Democrats have
abandoned in advance all hopes of
carrying our State, and place their
sole reliance on the chances of a solid
vote of the Southern States, South
Carolina excepted, with the addition
of the votes of the Pacific coast, and
New Jersey, Connecticut and New
York. On this basis they would
have 193 votes in the Electoral Col
ege. being eight more than a majori
ty. Deduct New York from the Dem
ocratic calculation and the majority
is changed into a minority. The
Democrats have therefore deliberately
settled ou New York as the battle
ground of the campaign, and staked
everything on carrying this State. It
warns the Republicans not to under
value his strength in New York. His
candidacy forces upon the Republi
cans a campaign of hard, honest and
systematic work, and the necessity of
nominating their best men for State
The World eulogizes both the St.
Louis nominees and the platform. It
says St. Louis responds to Cincinnati
first by nominating a candidate whose
name is a symbol of unflinching re
form on a platform which means a
peaceful revolution in the whole spir
it and conduct of the Government of
this country. It urges unity among
all conflicting elements of the party.
The Tribune says: The St. Louis
Convention has placed an admirable
candidate on a bad platform. It was
wise to nominate for President its very
strongest man. His nomination is a
triumph of principle which gave rise
to the Independents in November of
1872, and which every side joins. In
the approaching contest we shall have
a President of high personal character,
honest record aud sympathies and as
sociations. It is considered that the
shuffling phrases in the platform re
specting currency will injure Tilden's
chances in this state, and without car
rying New York the Democrats have
not the remotest chance of winning.
There is only one practical declara
tion in the platform, that Is tbe de
mand for the unconditional repeal of
resumption. There is no pledge to re
sume at any time, no word of condem
nation for inflation hearsay, but only
steps which have been taken toward
resumption. The Democrats insist on
retracting, and their offer to substitute
for the one at Cincinnati, a platform
unsatisfactory to honest men, because
it said too little, but it said nothing.
The Democratic party at St. Louis Is
committed to a course of national dis
honor, and avers in advance that it
had no idea of adopting the policy of
the statesman it has chosen for its
leader, and under such circum
stances it seems unlikely Tilden will
be elected unless Hayes has thrown
the battle away. The Republican
nominee, by his letter of acceptance
or in any other manner, should lead
the people to believe bis election
would be a continuation of Grantism
if he should falter on the currency
question or show a leaning toward the
corrupt a disgraceful.

if our people will prepare the road
bed and lay the ties from here to Col
ton that the Southern Pacific will
furnish the iron, build the road and
furnish the rolling stock. If this is
true, aud we have no reason to doutt
it, we should confer with the railroad

This would not prevent the building
of the Santa Monica road. To prepare
the road bed and lay the ties from
here to Colton could, it is estimated,
be done for $15,000. Men who are un
able to pay money could turu out

completed would enhance tbe value of
