We Hope They Will Do It.
As a journalist we of course bave
occasion to scan a far more varied
range of newspapers than the ordi
nary reader. We have observed,
as a consequence, a development iv
Republican journals which we
think it right to note as a sign of
the times. The Chicago Iribune,
a leading Republican organ, a
short time ago had an article upon
communism in which the figure of
Gen. Grant, with his inevitable
cigar, loomed up. Grant, as the
Republican candidate for the third
turn, and tbe St. George who is to
•lay tho Dragon of Communism,
is to come on the scene with dra
matic effect and sweep everything
before him—a Napoleonic tableau
with, by the way, a remarkable
absence of a Napoleon and of that
Paris which is said to be France.
This article, in a quiet way, is
being reproduced in every Repub
lican journal in tbe United States.
An occasional quasi Republican
newspaper, like the Sau Francisco
Argonaut, shakes its head aud
doubts. And thereby, in our opin
ion, they show their exceptional
•agaolty. But their number Is few
and far between.
Gen. Grant is to day iv Europe,
hob-nobbing with those of the Eu
ropean aristocracy who are not
disgusted at a Brummagem Amer
ican artiole, with the view of keep
ing himself prominently before
the American people. The Repub
lican party to-day, if it dared to
My so, desires to see Grant Presi
dent for a third term and, ulti
mately, Emperor. This, is, iv our
opinion, the sober truth. Those
who could read between the lines
of Beecher's sermons could always
•69 that he was a free thinker.
Those who can penetrate disguises
know how strong and deep, iv the
Republican party, is the current of
imperialism which underlies the
Republican party's lip service to
This game will be largely played
In the approaching Congressional
elections. We call the attention of
vaporing Republicans to the fact
tbat the first "blood" aud first
knock dowu have beeu scored by
the Democratic party in the elec
tion which has just taken place in
Oregon. We have not only elected
tbe Congressman, but we have
elected a Legislature iv Oregou
which will give us a Democratic
. successor to Hippell-Mitchell iutbe
United States Senate. The Re
publicau party may dream and
drivel about its Grants and its Im
perators, but tbe drama is even
dow being rapidly enacted which
will tell which party will rule this
country. The Democratic party,
with the certainty of the possession
of tbe United States Senate, could
afford to lose the Congressional
eleclious and still save tbe Presi
dency. A loss of the next House
of Representatives, however, would
be fatal to the Republicans.
We are happy to be able to say
that we think the mass of the
American people are still at bot
tom Jevoted to Djniocratic-Repub
llcan institutions. We think that
there never was such uu ignis
fatuut as that which the Republi
can leaders are hugging to their
bosoms when they tliiukthat Gen.
, Grant could be elected for a third
term. We think that such a nomi
nation would simply be political
suicide. As we have said, it Is
quite evident tbat the bulk of the
Republican party—at least its
newspapers—thiuk differently, and
we shall await the issue with an
absorbing curiosity. It might per
haps help Gen. Grant' i chances if
I the Congress which is about to as

credited with the intentiou of un

The Totter Investigating Com
mittee has already developed the
fact that Senator Stanley Mat
thews, of Ohio, the man Friday of
President Hayes, was the guide,
philosopher and friend of James E.
Anderson, the Louisiana Republi
can Supervisor who lias lately
made such damaging revelations
as to tbe Republican game of ttilui
ble-rig which was played iv tbat
State. All these cattle, as soon as
they begin to tell the details of the
dirty work In which they were en
gaged at the instance of " distin
guished" Republicans, are de
nounced without measure by the
Republican press. They were good
enough to "burke" the expression
of the will of the American people;
but as soon as, pursuant tn the old

out honest men come by their own,
they begiu to tell 'lie truth, these
Republican tools nre not worthy of

In view of such developments
the New York Herald, a paper
which has beeu fanatically devoted
to Hayes, may well say, ai it does,
in its Washiugtou correspondence
of June Ist:
It is certain that the testimony
of Anderson to-day, reinforced, as
it was, by the documents he pro
duced, and explaining these, has
produced a certain effect. There
was a general disposition before
hand to scout nt anything he might
say, and he was well understood
to be an adventurer and political
trader, ami it remaius truo still
that what he testified concerning
Secretary Sherman and Senator
Matthews has had comparatively
little effect. Mr. Matthews is shown
to have been foolish enough to be
come the custodian of documents,
the mere knowledge of whose ex
istence ought to have made him ex
tremely nttcomfortable; but uo one
imputes to bim anything more se
rious than folly. As to Secretary
Sherman, his denial was unex
pectedly guarded, but his frieuds
say tbat he spoke as be did because
he wants to see what remulns to be
produced against him, and that
when all tbe witnesses have spoken
he will then give a satisfactory ac
count of himself. Mr Sherman
said to your correspondent, a few
days ago, that lie had written no
letters at all to any one in Louis
iana, or on Louisiana affairs, aud
that anything, therefore, of that
kind purporting to be from him
must be a forgery and fraud. His
guarded and somwhat indefinite
answer to-day bas given the im
pression to a good many people
that he stands ou uncertain ground,
but it does not necessarily imply
But the documents brought out
to-day, especially the agreement
between Nash, the colored candi
date for Congress, and Anderson,
taken In connection with Ander
son's testimony, have certainly
produced a strong impression not
only on Democrats, but tilso on
many Republicans that the Demo
crats rightfully carried East Feli
ciana and some other parishes—
enough to have entitled them to
tbe electoral vote of the State. On
this point Anderson has produced
a deep impression, and so far the
Investigation, has undoubtedly, to
day, been a marked success for the
Democratic side, anil the Republi
cans will have difficulty in over
coming that impreseion.
What a sweet scented business it
is? It recalls that blowiug of the
south wind ou a bed of violets, giv
ing aud stealing odors. For the
rankness of the perfume only Re
publicans are responsible.
The Gbadband who administers
the Presidential offlce would not,
under any circumstances, have
aught to do with anything that
was naughty, even though' it
should have proved, in the eyes of
an Electoral Commission, nice
enough to make him President.
Oh no! Of course Hayes had noth
ing to do with the dirty work iv
Florida aud Louisiana, and yet we
find that, of the Florida rogues,
McLlu was nominated as Associato
Justice iv New Mexico; Howell,
who got up the alleged frauds in
Baker couuty, was made a Col-
lector of Customs; Bowes, charged
with fingering the ballots, Is in the
Treasury Department; Vance, the
Electoral Clerk in Alachua, who
certified to 210 fraudulent votes,
has a Federal position at Washing
ton; Black, Inspector of Election at
the same precinct, has a Federal
offlce at Philadelphia. In Louisi
ana, Madison Wells is Surveyor of
Customs; T. C. Auderson is Col
lector ot Internal Revenue; Caza
neuve has a place in the Custom
House; Auderson, who fixed up the
East Feliciana returns, was made a
Consul; Packard, who could have
told ugly things, was shipped otT
to tho Liverpool Consulate. Hayes
is the White Hind of the scriptural
parable; but, somehow or other, in
view of all the dirty developments
that havo so far beeu made, we are
tempted to regard him as a sort of
Presidential black sheep.

at length regarding the letter
written by Anderson deeliniug the

he bad no particularly friendly re

Andersou to Smith was read by
Geu. Butler enquiring whether
Senator Matthews had said any
thing of his, (Anderson's} frieud, a
clerk in tlie Philadelphia Custom
House; and, upou being interro
gated whether be (Smith) replied
to that letter, he said it was his rec
ollection tbat he did, and he stated
that he had not heard from Senator
Matthews on the subject.
General Butler culled the atten

from Cincinnati recommending tbe
appointment of Andersou, and
asked him if that letter was on

Gen. Smith stated that Butler, in
his statement claimed it as his
opinion, from the beginning of the
examination, that he (Smith) was
au unwilling witness, claiming as
bis reasons therefor the lact of tbe
receipt of personal letters from
Anderson by Smith which led him
(Butler) to believe that Smith
would uot testify to anything favor

did not know of the character of
