Cleveland's election conceded. Not
slightest fear of mobs or any disturbance
whatever. Tho business of the country
can now go on with tho certainty that so
far as the national administration is con

sanction. It may take some time for bus
iness to recover from the depression caused
by tho last few years of misrule, but the
future is bright. Mr. Blaine perhaps
is brilliant, but represents unsound and

Cleveland represents Sound common sensi',

The Colored Man.
It could hardly bo expected oiherwiso
that in the general jub.lant feeling of tho
democrats who after so long a period of re
publican ascendency find their party restor
ed to power, and tho old and tried princi
ples of Washington, Jefferson and tho early
fathers of the republic to bo again applied
to the administration of national affairs,
should manifest the general good feeling
prevailing by an occasional practical joko
upon tho republicans, and particularly up
on tho colored citizens, who have been
made to believe that they would bo re
turned to servitude, in such an event, by tho J
democrats. Tho whiles of courso know
better, but many of tho blacks do not, and
do not suspect that their white republican
friends have practiced this ruso only to
keep tho negroes voting them into ofllco.
Time will completely disabuse their minds
of auy uneasiness on this Bcore, and they
will learn that democratic rulo means tho
protection and welfare of every person ow
ing allegiance to tho govornmenr, whether
white or black, foreign or native born;
that it moans a return to better times, more
work and better pay. They will also learn
in time that even if the colored peoplo do
sirod it, there could uot bo a return to tho
old ante bellum status of tho races. Tho
white peoplo would not favor such a thing
-but tho Joking will still ga on to the
amusement of all parties, but we ask our
democratic friends to let up on it so far as
tho colored man is concerned. You know
it is a )oko, but many of them receive it in

Cleveland and Hendricks aro elected
president and vice-president witli voles in
the electoral colh ge to spare. Tho result
has been known at republican headquarters
for two days, but tho wires wire in tho
hands of Jay Gould, and tho reports were
held back by his tool the infamous Asso
ciate Press while tlienews was manipulated
to Buit them, and only such sent out as
would unsettle tho public mind and leave
it open to accept any gigantic fraud that
might be perpetrated but the scheme failed.
We do not, for a moment, believe tho rank
and file of the republican party would tol
erate any dishonesty in their leaders even
to obtain their president, an J we know the
democracy would not. There is no doubt
"tho solo reason for the refusal of the re
publican leaders to accept and admit the
result had its origiu in a purpose and hope
that money, force and fraud miht corrupt
tho results in the state of New York. Just
as the republican managers in 1870 turned
to Grant an I the sword, did tho Blaine
managers turn to Jay Gould and tho West
ern Union Telegraph. Tho lying bulletins
scut out by this ambitious corporation, by
order of tho inflated robber who proposed
to rulo tho country in tho person of the
tattooed man from Maine, bad as their ob
ject tho complete purversion of public opin
ion. They wero intended to delay and mis
lead tho judgment of tho peoplo, and to
play upon party spirit, They formed part
of a conspiracy.
All attempts to confuse tho facts and
muddle tho count proved of no avail. Now
York lias cast its vote for Cleveland and
Hendricks, and neither Gould nor Blaine
could set it aside.
Let good men everywhere rejoice. Wo
shall have at last the long-needed chango
of parties in tho national administration.
Peacefully, safely, tho government will bo
transferred from ono set of officials to
another set. The peoplo have triumphed.
Tho conspirators aro b ifllid. And glory
