Of course his record followed him, and
sandwiched among his other deeds, lay
like a haunting shadow, the frtrm trans

(Columbus (O.) Statesman, ( i. t. tt.)
l'here was a startling. rumor on the
Rtrcets of the city Saturday afternoon ami
all lay yesterday regarding the new
mode of conducting political campaigns,
namely, "betting on elections." Zac-li
Chandler, the unprincipled chairman of
the National Republican Committee, in
formed Gov. Hayes by letter that unless
he took the Stale of Ohio in October by a
sub.-taiitial majority, that the committee
would drop him and leave him to light
his own battle. It was intimated to
Hayes by Chandler that unless he raised
sutheicnt fund lor that purpose, the
Republican party would regard bun as
iin interloper a dead weight
on its hands. This so nettled Hayes that
he sought a loan of ?l.Vi,0X). uiid pro
cured ii after depositing sulliclerit col
laterals, 'i he major portion or said loan
was obtained from capitalists in this city,
the rest of it Irom well-known politicians)
and bankers, each party requiring sutll
cient collaterals. The division "ol the
funds was a subject of discussion among
the politicians, but it was unanimously
decided to appropriate a certain amount
tor "betting purposes' iu order to create
as in last year, a public opinion. Twenty
thousand dollars was the sum as
signed to Columbus for that purpose,
and now young men may be seen 011
the streets betting $1110 that Barnes
will Imj elected secretary ot state who
were never known to be thu possessors of
111 tlicrr lives. 11 you ask them to
put up the money intantly they w ill say,
'Wait ten minutes," and trace them on
their journey and you w ill find that they
go direct to the Republican executive
committee. Other cities ami towns re
ceive like portions for like purpose.
The Republican party being satisfied that
the sum contributed fur this purpose last
year was the bet campaign fund ever
spent in this state. They boast that it
bad the ellect ot causing Democrats to
Ixt on Hayes in large amounts,
aiidtliat.otcour.se, to win these amounts,
they voted for Hayes and used their
Influence for him. There is much truth
in this. We place these facts and cir
cumstance Isidore our reader and cau
