An Address by tho Iloiiubllran Committer.
During tho day tho republican national com

of Blalno nnd Logan by tho votes of every
northern state, except New Jersey and Con

York attempts to tamper with tho returns
have already been detected. Tbo actual voto

1,852 other election precincts gave, at tbo ut
most, only 14S plurality to Grover Cleveland,
whllo tho 103 precincts not vet heard Irom

At-OiBTA, Me., Nov. 0 Mr. Blaine received
a large number of callers to day, stato officers,
personal friends, and neighbors. They all
congratulated him on his strong and healthy
appearance after tbo fatigue of his recent pro
longed tour lu tbo west. Mr. Blalno showed
no excitement or anxiety nbout tho election
returns Indeed, he wus lar cooler thau tho
frlcndt who tilled his librnr) and drawing
room, llo read tho numerous telegrams ho
received tn tho company, often oxplalnlng
their meaning uud bearing of their contents.
In answer to somo ono who congratulated btiu
upon bis perfect self possession, bo tfuld ho
saw no icason why ho should not
bo eclf posaotsed ; that bo had treated
tbo republican nomination as an
honorable trust confided to him without so
licitation and had, therefore, spared no tlmo
and no eilort to sccuro success, llo had mil
conlldenco that bo had been fairly elected,
and he trusted that every effort would now bo
inudo to vindicate tho tacredncss ot tho ballot.
"To quote mv own saving on an Important
oecaslou," added Mr. lllaluc, ' any party In
thu United btntcs can bear to be defeated, but
no part) will bear to bo defrauded " Mr,
Blalno treel) exprcased tho Judgment that n
majority of the votes of New orlmd been
cast for tho rcDUllcan electoral ticket, llo
thought tho returns and tho comparison with
former votes clearly establish this conclusion.
I atu In tho afternoon, whllo Mr, Blulno was
entertaining somo Irlends at dinner, n dispatch
vmis received from l'hlladelphla usklng
whether It was truo that he hud died at 1
o'clock. The truth Is that Mr. Blalno Is In
unusually robust health and excellent spirits.
