THE I AXDIDAT1.
The nomination of Samuel J. Tildcn
for the presidency of the. United States
was, uudcr the circumstances, the wisest
course the St. Louis convention could
have taken. One of the strongest
charges made by the Ihmocrats against
the Republicans was aud is, that the Rad
icals had not the moral courage to ap
prove the conduct ot liristow in punish
ing dishonest ofllcials that tearing the
power of its rascals it repudiated the puu
iahers of iU thieves. If the St. Jxniis con
vention had refused to nominate Mr.
Tildt-n this charge would have lost its
force. It would have becu replied to by
the Republicans, w ho would have said :
" You also lad a practical reformer in the
I-ran of the governor of New Y ork,
but fearful of the threats ot Democratic
rascals to not support him you had not
the moral courage to nominate 111111."
This cannot now Ik; said, 14ml the Repub
licans must lind other grounds of objec
tion to the Democratic party.
In the nomination of Mr. Thomas A.
Hendricks for the vice-presidency the
convention manifested a do ire to make
ticket of unquestionable ability. He is
a gentleman ot large public experience,
and as great a man intellectually a Mr.
Tildcn. In Indiana he is popular with
the Democratic party, and will, although
hl followers iu that State are sonic
what sore over his deleat
by Mr. Tildcn, rally vig.
onmdy in ids support. They cuinot af
f u'd to carry their opposition to Mr. Til
dcn to Uie polls, and they will not do so.
Willi Tildcn and Hendricks elected,
lle country will have reason to congrat
ulate Itaclf ; for iu their election will
come reform In every department of the
government and staiuuuaudiip in its ad
ministration. At home we will again
be prosperous an J abroad we will have
no occasion to blu.li liecause of the diame
of the Republic.

exccDiinif we take counsel by our

the mission of U ic delegation irom

Whether we shall lc able to comply w ith

iu the coming election, is one ot the (pie
lions of the future.

A Delegate: Illinois will.

Mr. President, 1 could only say that upm

dricks iu nomination lor the second otlice
iu the gilt of the American people has
devolved upon the convention. Cheers.
The Missouri delegation have instructed
1110 a the representative of this great
State to say that Missouri is a unit, and
we believe the entire Democratic, party
of America will be a unit in the support
of Tildcn and Hendricks. Cheers.
Hendricks has 110 truer friend than his
own native State, or one who was willing
to stand by him longer than I when his
name was placed In nomination for the
lirst olliee within the gift of this conven
tion, for I conceive that these olllces arc
within the gilt of the convention. I
stood by him, but gentlemen, it I was
disappointed in the realization of my ex
pectation, it 1 felt in my heart to weep
lor it, 1 this morning led that I can re
joice when I remember that the distin
guished reformer, the profound states
man, the honest man, Samuel J. Tildcn,
has been nominated by ibis convention.
And now, gentlemen, let me say this:
Place Samuel J. Tildcn upon your ticket
lirst, Thos. A. Hendricks next, ap
plause and then inscribe on your hau
lier under these names retrenchment and
relorni, honest administration, and from
Maine to California our flag will float in
triumph in November next. Great ap
plause. 1 second the nomination ol Gov.
Air. Wallace of Pennsylvania: The
Pennsylvania delegation (in obedience to
the willingness of Indiana that this con
