THE BANE OF POLITICS.
The pabsiou, tlie lmtrcii, the violcucc,
now prevalent between the two ,'roat l'au
tions of tlie Republican puriy serve to illu
fruto the intensity of ieeliuj; that now ami
then becomes supreme in American politics.
A. similar manifestation was apparent in
the memorable conflict between tlie Demo
cratic factions in 1S0O. The spectacle thus
presented conveys a les.on that should ar
rest the atteution of every youtii; man
whose aspirations are lixed on political
fame and place. There is nothing in it to
enoble nor to elevate. The dominant in
fluence that sways the turbuleut elements
now gathering at Chicago bears no rela
tion to the country's weai. It is the oil'.r--ing
of unscrupulous ambition. It
aims to gratify a mere hive of
power. It is the impulsion of greed
for the patronage of a great government the
essential principles of which plry but little
part in the contest. It is this degradation
of political strife that has driven, and is
driving, the beat men from the public ser
vice. The struggle for office costs more
than the office can fairly pay. It costs tne
manliest attributes cl character. It cjtts
friendship, honor, justice, virtue, truth. It
costs purity ot heart and peace of soul.
Juat the other day, Hou. John H. Gordon, of
fleorjiia, resigned a teat in the United States
senate. Tlie act awakened surprise. There
was wonder that an exalted place like that
. should be voluntarily abandoned, and in
quiries were pressed upon Senator Gordon
fur the reason that had prompted his
coarse. To these inquiries he replied :
"The thought of a peaceful, happy life at
. ray own home, with my wife and children
about me, Gradually improving; and lieuuti-
fyiog my place, entertaining my friends
i quietly, and living in cmfirt and inde
jwndence among: my horses and cattle and
clover, is actually transporting."
Here is a man who has led a brilliantly,
successful career. He has served his
, state in various public stations. He lias
been an ornament of le'jjinlHtiv hall?, chal
lenging respect and admiration fr m friend
mcI foe. He has trod the perilous paths
. of war, and won fame at the canon's
mouth. Multitudes havo hunij, as it
were, upon hi eloquent tongue, bat
talious hare followed his plume, and
honors of every decree sought a rest
Jog place on his hrow. Hut, turning
from from tbe contention and care of place
, Mil nower with ereater honors vet
within his trasp he yearns for the
k..,.ti,L.-,n,. of home, for the sweet
c nnpauirnshipof wife and children for the
flowers that brighteu the over-gludes of
Georgia, for the clover and the cuttle, the
horses, the herds, and all the endearments
that bind the heart to one's own fields imd
rouf-tree. There is more for Gordon in tho
fond look of wife and the trustful eyes of
children thau in all the pomp and heraldry
of official lifd at Washington. He lias tast
ed the baneful draft of politics, of official
power and found it full of bitterness. He
is surfeited him with the vanities of party
strife, and is no longer won by the trumpet
cry of fame. Tho quarrels of office seekers,
the hates of party leaders, tho emptiness of
official honors have driven the unsullied
Gordon back to his fireside, and are keep
ing numberless other, no less worthy than
he, from the vexatious duty of tho public
Kikk Hawk?, in his address to the indig
nation meeting at Chicago tho other uight,
after detailing to his hearers the manner in
which the Farwell hall constituency were
robbed of their rights by Logan and his
henchmen, proceeded to say:
Now, gentlemen, I have given you an
outline of what occurred there at thut con
vention; and I say to you that you ure right
in feeling indignant. You have been dis
franchised; you have been cheated; you
have been robbed; and all for what i 1
say, gentlemen, for the purpose of forcing
upon you the nomination of a man that is
not tne unanimous cnoice ei u single
northern state loud applause to force
upon you the nomination of a mun that is
not the choice of a majority even in his
owu state. (Cries of "Thut is true," and
applause. To force upon you the nomi
nation of a man that stands calmly by and
sees his own friends aud neighbors defraud
ed and cheated in their owu state conven
tion, and never utters one word of re
monstrance. iKeneweu applause. j 10
force upon you the nomination of a man
who has already held his high office for
two full terms, and in violation of the
unwritten law of this republic, and in
violation of the precedent set by Wash
ington. Jefferson, and the long line of
their illustrcus successors, is now seek
ing to obtain that office a third time.
Cries of "We will show him," and loud
applause. To force upon you tho nomi
nation of a man that went into office with
his party in full possession of every
branch of this government, with a two
thirds majority in the house, and with a
strong working majority in the senate, but
who went out of office leading a hopeless
minority in the house, and a bare majority
in the senate, his party disorganized, dis
gusted, and on the tve of dissolution.
Loud applause. To force upon you the
nomination of a man who, by his appoint
ments, suck our civil service so low that
there wore very few honest men found who
would dare accept an appointment under
it, and the word "officeholder'' was synony
mous with thief. Loud applause.
Now, 1 say to any of the friends ot Gen.
Grant in this hall, 1 have no personal ani
mosity to the man. I know him as a suc
cessful military chieftain. Applause. I
would not rob him of one honor. When
he came here to Chicago I hung my ban
ner from the outer wall, and shouted with
the rest. Renewed cheers. Hut I say as
a president lie is a tauure, ana we do not
want him for another term. Can you say
that I put it too strongly Loud cries of
"No, no."J Ilecall tlie facts that in 173
the cry of civil service reform went up all
over this land. At Cincinnati wc incor
porated into our platform the word
"reform" more than fifty times, while the
Democratic manifesto, put forth at St.
Louis, fairly exhausted the English lan
guage in the protestations for civil service
reform. Laughter and applause.! I ask
you gentlemen, how did it happen that at
that particular time the people of this
country became so terribly in earnest for re
form'; I answer because of. such men as
IJelknap, and Dabeock, and Shepherd, the
whisky thieves, and the whole gang. iLmid
applause. I answer because Gan. Gnmt.
when these men were detected in their
crimes, only accepted their resignation and
opened the back door of the white house
and bade them God speed that they might
escape from their pursuers.

WHAT ALEXANDER II. STEPHENS
Gen. Gordon's explanation of his reasons
for resigning have not satisfied everyone.
Alexander H. Stephens is responsible for
another explanation. He says: "Mr. Gor
don hud reached the point where he stood
in a slippery place. A brilliant war record,
and what hail passed for a creditable civil
career, have already been smirched
by certuin business complications in which
prominently figured penitentiary con
tracts, which, it will be remember
ed, brought about the cold-blooded murder
of Col. Allaton by Cox, who was sent to the
penitentiary for life. Mr. Gordon, it is
said, stood in momentary dread ot a threat
ened exposure, which would summarily
close his public career, and ring the cur
tain down in darkness. The growing in
dependent party in Georgia was pursuing
hiin, and he found it impossible to cover
up his tracks. Mr. Gordon was therefore
anxious to get out of public life. Mr.
Brown was anxious to get into the United
States senate, an ambition which has long
haunted him. Gov. Colquitt, who trains
with Messrs. Brown and Gor
don, saw how he could serve
two friends, and consented to dicker,
in the hope of cementing such an alliance
as may hereafter help in some designs
which he holds in abeyance. Mr. Coliuitt
can not be re-elected, tor the Independents
will run a strong man against him most
likely Congressman Felton, a stirring
stumper and a strong, popular favorite.
Mr. Brown's appointment is regarded by him
and his friends as giving him an election
for the term beginning March, 1S?3, an 1 60
strengthening the combination to which
Messrs. Colquitt and Gordon are parties."
The same authority gives out a suggestion
that Mr. Gordon's move may have an effect
on Georgia's attitude in the presidential

Tlie Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
