only to the vote otlhe people at the polls.
TnEBE has been a presidential election
in Mexico, and the friends of the defeated
candidates propose to organize a revolution
and seizetlie government, lluyes ought to
have been born in Mexico.
Republican papas charge that Hancock
it not a statesman, and Senator Bayard re
plies thus; "If a man who can turn foe to
friend and bring a conquered enemy to al
legince, is not a statesman, then pray tell
. me what is statesmanship" Could a
clearer answer to a false statement be
Tub administration having concluded to
dispense with deputy mursliuls at the elec
tions in the south, it may be appropriate to
Inquire why this determination has been
made after all the Republican orators have
Mid about the necessity of Hayes "enforc
ing every law on the Federal statute book."
If Hayed declines to enforce the law why
don't they impeach him tor high treason.
TW ! itrange proceeding, and coupled
with printed Redublican admission that
"they know the south is solid for Ilaucork,"
it if evidently full confession that the
Federal election law passed for purely rev
olutionary and partisnn purposes. As long
as the Republican leaders thought there
was a chance- to bulldoze and crush the
right of suffrage in the south, they plied
their infamous law backed by tho military.
They now fully admit everything- tho Dem
ocrats have asserted about that law.
The Chicago News, a Republicaa or
gan, says that "one of the grimest jokes
of the campaign is the indorsement of Gar
field's honesty by tho odorous Ex-Senator
J.W.Patterson, of New Hampshire. This
is the Senator Patterson whom OakssAmes
bribed with over $2,000 of Credit Mobilicr
and Pacific stock, but who subsequently
sworo that he never received, nor did any
one ever hold for him in trust, one penny's
worth of stock in the Credit Mobilicr. In
the meantime, Oakes Ames went before the
congressional committee and exhibited two
receipts signed by Patterson ; one for stock
and the other for dividends, delivered by
Oakes Ames to him. There was also other
evidence in the shape of a check on the ser-geant-nt-arms
given by Ames to Patterson
and endorsed by the latter, showing that he
received the money theron. Had not Mr.
Garfield better get certificates of character
from parties other thau self-convicted
thieves and perjurers?
It is one of the significant features of
the campaign that such men as Charles
Francis Adams, Lyman Trumbull, David
A. Wellss, Judge Hoadley, David Davis,
Gen. John M. Palmer, 13. Gratz Brown,
ex-Gov. Curtin all prominent Republicans
until 1872 are among the most active
champions of Hancock and Democracy.
This is, 6peakinfc about the great fraud of
1870, what Charles Francis Adams says
about the situation:
After such an act I have no desire to
sustain the Republican party in any way.
Although Gen. Garfield is a man whom I
respect, I could not vote for him on that
account. I would not vote for a party
that would carry through such a fraud. I
think Mr. Hayes was elected by a fraud,
and I do not mean to have it said that at
the next election I bad forgotten it. I do
not say that Mr. Hayes committed the fraud,
but it was committed by his party. I have
no enmity to Mr. Hayes, but after the fraud
by which be became President I could not
vote for any person put up tor President on
the Republican side who did not disavow
the fraud committed. I would not support
any member of that parry who had any
sort of mixture with that fraud. I feel
that the counting out is just as much a
fraud now as at the time it was perpetrat
ed. GRANT TALKS.
HIS OPISION OF HIS TREATMENT BT THE
Washington, July 11. The Post pub
lishes a letter from a Kansas correspondent
who professes to give points of a conver
sation Gen. Grant had on a recent trip
through that state with L. G. Entwright,
now an Arizona miner, who was his friend
in the days when he was out in Oregon,
many years ago. Mr. Entwright says that
Grant was quite rcticeut as to the treatment
he received at Chicago, but intimated very
plainly that, although unfamiliar with the
workings of the party machinery, and in no
sense a politician. He had been led to be
lieve that his nomination was not only pos
sible but probable; in fuct he father ex
pected it; but upon serious reflection, had
some time before almost determined to an
nounce his premptory withdrawal as a can
didate, for the reason that he saw and ap
preciated the objections that many people
entertained to a third term, and knew that
this would be rather an embarrassing dif
ficulty in the canvass.
His confidential advisers, however, in
sisted that he should run, and, as it has
Bince proved, greatly exaggerated to him
his chances of bucccss. He seemed to feel
grateful to those who stood by him out ot
friendship and on principle, but could not
conceal his thorough disgust for Conkling,
Logan and others who had so recklessly
miscalculated tho position and overestimat
ed his strength.
As to the pending canvass, Grant is said
to have evaded expressing his opinion at
first; but when alluhion was made to the
military record ot Gen. Hancock all tho
latent enthusiasm of his nature seemed to
be aroused and lie freely remarked that in
his opinion no better or safer man could be
elected to the chief magistracy. He eulo
gized the moiu!s of Gen. Hancock as a
corps commander very highly, and said he
was a man who never faltered in the per
formance ot his duly, and seldom, if ever,
made a blunder.
The ex-president evidently looked upon
it as something of a compliment to him
self that a soldier of uuch high rank
should have been selected at Cincinnati,
apparently feeling that the preferences of
the people are for a man who combines the
qualities of a statesman aud soldier both
than for a mere politician.
"It cannot be benied," he added, with a
siguificant putT of his cii;ar, "that the Do
mocrucy have ut last come to their Benson
and will improved their opportunity. It is
the first time, in fact, since circumstannces
led me out of the party, that it has made a
nomination for which there wu such a
show of success and this time I shouldn't
wonder if they had hit he right nail square
on the head; ami on the whole, as between
ourselves and the horsu truck, I can't say
that I'm sorry for it.''
The Ucneinl hnd nothing to say, how
ever, in depreciation of Mr. Garfield, fur
ther than the remark that he hud rather too
many volumes of congressional debates be
hind him to make a smooth and successful
HOW TO CARRY ILLINOIS.
If it bepofsililrt to CBrry Illinois for the
Democratic nominees, that possibility exists
in the Deinocrutic press. It is the lever
which wilt move the fluctuating vote in this
Mate from Ctillom to Trumbull. That done
and victory is accomplished. Tho electors
in tho state ot Illinois, who, In 1876. desert
ed Cullom and cut down hii majority to a
mere trifle, are ready again, pon a clear
and pointed presentation of the issues of
tho campaign, to vote for that change in
our Btnte administration which will secure
to them higher executive ability and better
administration of state affaire.
The Democratic press should bo diligent
and prudent. Should present the issues
lrom week to week in a fair and thorough
manner. Above all, it should demand ot
local politicians that they lay aside local
quarrels and unite in tho grand cffoit to
make Illinois a Democratic state.
The duties of the party to the press are,
however, greater than that of the press to
the party. Local politicians should see
that the press is cordially sustained in its
efforts. County papers should bo widely
circulated in their localities, and county
committees should seo that it be done, and
the editor properly compensated therefor.
Doubtful voters should not be left in the
dark through Bny impeouniosity on their
part. They hhould be sought out and
sound Democratic paners secured to them.
These are the means which will carry
Illinois in November. Let them be availed

An Elegant Toilet Preparation, hair

to restore gray or faded hair to its original

checked by its use, and it produces a
growth of beautiful young hair, "soft, glossy
and luxuriant. It certainly is the most
cleanly and effective hair restorer now be

order for eight dollars; please send me one
dozen "London Hair Color Restorer." It
has stopped my hair from falling, and re
stored it to its natural color. It has proven
satisfactory in every respect. The "London
Hair Color Restorer ' can be obtained at all

Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrlt. Rev.
Sylvanus Cobb thus writes in the Boston
Christian Freemen: We would by no
means recommend any kind ot medicine
which we did not know to bo good par
ticularly for infants. But of Mrs. Wins
low's soothing syrup we can speak from
knowledge; in our own family it has pro
ven a blessing indeed, bv giving an infant
troubled with colic pains, quiet rest, and
parents unbroken rest at night. Most pa
rents can appreciate these blessings. Here
is an article winch works to perfection, and
which is harmless; for the sleep which it
affords the infant is perfectly natural ; and
the little cherub awakes as "bright as a
button." And during the process ot teeth
ing its value is incalculable. We have fre
quently heard mothers say they would not
be without it from the birth of the child
till it had finished with the teething siege,
on any consideration whatever. Sold by
all druggists. 25 cents a bottle.
