PUCK ON BLAINE.
We hare received the following letter:
Sir Notwithstanding your opposition
to James 0. Blaine, ilont you really believe
he will be elected next president of the U.
S.f Come now, give u an honest opinion
of thoughts, ai they occur to you during
j'OMT moments of sober iucod thoughts,
and you will greatly oblige
A Republican Rkader ok Tuck
who will vote for Blaine and Logan.
No. We do not bolieve that the Ameri
can nation will disgrace itself by electing
Mr. Blaine president.
Audit he were elected what then?
Would he be any the less a tricky and die
honorable politician? Would John A. Lo
gan be anything but a turn-coat slave
catcher? Would dishonesty be honesty;
would unprincipled smartness be wise in
tegrity; would a demagogue's tricks be
statesmanship? Would a lie be the truth?
We publish tho above communication be
cause it is a fair example of the desperate
tactics of Mr. Blaine's followers. They
have had from the beginning bat this one
argument: He will be elected. Yes, he is
a dishonorable man; he has proved himself
unfaithful to his public trust ; he is not a
statesman at the best but a smart and
showy demagogue; he is utterly unfit to be
president of the United States but be
will be elected: therefore let us support
him. This has been their one solitary pica
And at the first, wc will admit, we thought
it might be to some extent effective among
the people. We saw that it was possible
that a sustained etf.irt of brilliant impu
dence might curry the delirium known as
the "Blaine boom" through to a successful
conclusion. But cow two mouths have
passed since Mr. Blaine's nomination, and
the sustained effort of brilliant impudence,
which the Blaine movers would call an
"aggressive campaign," is not seen.
Impudence enough there has beeu, in all
the conduct of the Blaine campaign; but
it has been stupid impudence. We hive
lad the dull and futile lying of the Trib
une; the fatuous misrepresentation of the
country press such part of it as still clings
to the disgraced party; the blatant extrav
agance of the campaign orator; the con
temptible apologies of the few respectable
Republicans who have been whipped in to
support the man they denounced ten weeks
ago, and we have had the busts aud brutal
slander of Mr. Cleveland for which the
Boston Journal and an unnamable paper in
this state r.iuat bear the responsibility.
Here and there excited office-holders have
gathered together the unwilling citizens
and hung acrou the highways the flag of
their country, and marred its sacred stripes
with the portrait of a man whose greedy
heart never knew one patriotic thrb. And
the hired brass-bands play, aud the hired
orators spout, end the hungry politicians
yell, and the Tribune misquotes the Post,
and tho Honorable Mr. Hoar's "defense"
of Blaine is carefully hidden from th eyes
of Mr. BlaiuVa supporter?, and Mr. Wil
liam Walter Phelps declines to earn $10,
000 for Vale College by proving his candi
date to be an honorable man, and Vermont,
the stronghold of the party, gives a reduced
Republican mtij irity in the local election.
There is impudence here; but where is
the brilliancy? We werj to have an "ag
gressive campaign." Blaine was to sweep
the country like a whirlwind. Ho was to
go Into the White House on a great billow
of popular eothusiasrn. Ilia opponents
were to be "kept on the run." Aud what
do we find after two months? Mr: Blaine,
cast off aud condemned by tho best men
aud the best papers of his own party, con
ducting a halting, hesitating campaign of
. trickery, evasion, shifts and lies, the only
"agirresaivcness" of which is seen In infa
uoai tod indecent method of unmanly
warfare, Why is this?
Because the man is a coward at bottom.
He tdwaya baa been a blusterer and a brag
gart; a swashing fellow, of great martini
promise and no performance. When it
cornea to the crucial moment, wjien the
point of trial i reached, he tuini weakly;
he runs; be pleads for safety. He is tho
Tilt DAU.V OAlltO BUUJSTIN; WEDNESDAY MOKN1NU SEPTEMBER
loudest to bid defiance to danger; in the
face of danger he slips away. Such he was
when he all but went on his knees to Mulli
gan to get back the letters that damned
his fair famo beforo all the world. Such
ho was when he pleaded with Lot M. Mor
rill, "with tears and entreaties," to use in
fluence in his behalf. Such he was when
he took refugo in a suddeu and mysterious
illness, as he saw the hour of condemna
tion close at hand. Such he was when,
unvindicated, his name tainted with dis
honor, ho slipped into tho United States
Senate, to escape being branded by the
House of Representatives.
Such ho is now, when he brings a pcr
functiouary civil suit against a paper that,
if it has libeled him at at all, has libeled
him criminally. Such he is now, when he
countenances an infamously slanderous as
sault on Governor Cleveland; and stabs his
adversary in the back with a weapon no
other politician would touch. Such he is
now, when man after man, newspaper after
newspaper, rises up to tell him that he has
been an unfaithful public servant, and to
thrust the proofs of dishonor in his face,
and he remains silent.
Such he is now, when he forms an alli
ance with the cheapest charlatan of Ameri
can politics on the mere chance of stealing
a few votes from the Democracy. This is
surely the last resort of cowardice. To
pick up this clown who for years has t een
the despicable butt of the nation, a sort of
disgraceful living jest; scoffed at, yet feared
for his capacity for mischief why, what
self-respect can be left in the man or the
party that will consent to such associa
tions A pleasant reflection it must be
for respectable Republicans, that the nom
inee of their party has joined forces with a
man whose only claim to public recogni
tion is his hold on the cupidity and credu
lity of that floating element which calls
itself a "working class" and does not
knew the meaning of a days work I
No, there will be no aggressive cam
paign. If his supporters had begun a
campaign of aggression, and his oppon
ents had responded with a campaign of re
taliation, Mr. Blaine would have retired
from the canvass long before this. He is
the last man in the world who can afford
to go into an aggressive campaign, and he
knows it. If by underhanded means, in
crooked ways he can steal into the White
House, he will do it. Honestly and fairly
to fight away there he leaves to the man
whose watchword is: "Tell the Truth."
This is a bad season for corruption, and
it begins to look as though our "magnetic"
aud "aggressive" board of aldermen had to
come to an end of its magnetism and ag
gressions. For years it has attracted to,
itself the money and the Influence of mo
nopolists and political sharks, and the use
it has made of its power this suffering city
knows too well. But now it has gone so
fur in its well, its "intense Americanism"
that is what Mr. Blaine would call it
that it has actually goaded the patient pop
ulace int revolt. We do not wish to excite
false hopes; but there seems to be some
thing of a chance that tho alderman who
recently handed a valuable city franchise
over to monopolists, for considerations a
this writing not quite definitely known,
may have a chance to put their profits out
at compound interest while they mellow in
Siug Sing. This seems a dream of ideally
poetical justice, yet it is uniting the possi
ble things. And oh, what a cleanly, hip
py, and well governed city might this be
if only the majority of it present ru'ets
were in jail ! Puck, Sept. 10
Tho natives in botitu exhibited tho
general characteristics of tho Polyne-sian-Maylnys.
Their faces wero elottr
f tattoo, but from tho loins down over
tho hips and thighs to tho knees, tho
Sanioans puncturo the color into tho
skin ih closely dotted muss, with diag
onal lines of bare skin embellishing tho
design, which at a distance look almost
like a pair of dark pants. The instru
ments used are usually tho spines of
the shaddock tree or bone driven in
with small mallets. The coloring
matter is burned ciindle nut The
women do the tattoo. Tho process is
begun with tho men at tho ago of 2 ),
and is slow and painful. As among
their civilized professional hreUiret"
there is a coilo of honor recognized in
tho profession devoted to thhTnrt, nnd
this code is chiefly applied so true is
human nature to nil its aspects to tho
maintenance of an adequato sealo of
fees. A tattooor will sometimes stop
in tho middlo of his job, leaving tho
subject half dono, until his peeiTniaiy
demands nre satisfied, nnd no profess
ional brother eau bo tempted to cut in
aud finish the business. A Samoan is
no moro ahlo to walk tirouud for the
rest of his life half tattooed than an
Australian masher with ono whisker,
und ho is therefore obliged to pay up to
the uttermost farthing. Although not
so invariably as in Fiji, tho Samoan
men nnd women do dvo their ha:,r yel
low with burned coral, and paint their
faces red nnd black. Tbey also shav'b
tho heads of their children, using
shark's teeth for razors. Rubbing or
pressing noses, as with tho Maoris, is
tho form of Uatioual salute. They

morning, hut afterwards have no reg

In caso of denm lroni a contagious

erly forbidden by health Atilhori'h's,
tililiotigh oen isionally a "wane" is
surreptitiously lndii. with its unfort in
itio but natural results; of this, how
ever, wo iiimiiI not speak, as tho wisdom
of thus limiting infliction is acquiesced
in generally by intoiiigent peoplo, and
tho law is usually obeyed. There are
Homo minor infractions of tho laws of
hoalih that should bo mentioned, which
physicians have repeatedly called at
tention to, but tho higher laws of fash
ion nnd custom appear to exert a pre
ponderating inlltieiieo. For' instance,
there are very few days in tho year
when dolieato women can ride long
distances in a close carriage, and then,
reaching the cemetery, stand upon tho
damp, cold sod for a greater or less
timo during tho final ceremonies at tho
grave without physical injury to them
selves. A custom also to which especial at
tention should be directed, in order to
havp it changed, is that of men stand
ing bare-headed in tho open air, ap
parently indifferent to the burning sun
of July or the cold winds of March,
without regard to the season or tho
weather. Taking into consideration
the associated conditions, tho neces
sarily depressing iiillueiioo upon tho
emotions of tho sad duty which at tho
time is pre-eniinont in tho mind, tho
physical condition resulting from sit
ting in a cramped position during a
tedious rido in a carnage and the un
accustomed exposuro to tho weather, it
is not surprising that cases of illness
result from the removal of the head
covering, particularly in elderly peo
ple with an enfeebled circulation. On
a hot day thero is daugerof producing,
if not actual sunstroke, at least a con
gestion of the membranes of tho brain,
which causes persistent and violent
headaches, and to thoso ministers and
those olliciating are particularly liable.
Whether tho day be hot or cold, wet
or only windy, let tho services bo held
at a piaco where tho health of the at
tendants need not bo imperiled; let
delicate and weakly persons be re
strained from riding to tho cemetery
and from standing on tho (lamp
ground; and especially let men ol'.'y
common senso rather than custoiu,.and
keep on their hats when they risk a
sickness by their removal. "Medical
