General Grant was never nearer
right than when he said the Democratic
party could always be relied upon te de
the wrong thing at the right time. In
1SS4 it nominated Cleveland and Hen

state of Indiana. The ticket was success
ful. In 18S8 it nominated Cleveland
and Thurman, the latter from the relia

was defeated. Yesterday, in this year
of grace 1S92, it nominated Cleveland
and Stevenson, the latter from the
surely Republican state of Illinois.
The ticket is beaten in advance of the

never been guilty of giving a Demo

Nhw Yeiik, June 24. The World says:
Grever Cleveland must have the elec

cy of the country did net accept the
dictated decree of the mid-winter con
vention as the full, free and
final expression as of the demo
crats of New Yerk. And in this it was
right Snap judgment can never be
accepted as conclusive. The only ob
jection against his nomination was that
he could net carry New Yerk. It was
never urged that he is net honest that
he is net capable, that he is net faithful
te the constitution. He meets the Jef Jef
fersenlan test perfectly. But because
sqrae people like him and ether people
