The Pivotal State.
The vote of the state of New York in the
late election still continues t)bea matter
of geneial interest. More especially to our
Republican friends, who feel that they
have been beateu but can't tell what may
turn up, or be turned up by the republican
national committee, who persist in the re
markable claim, in view of the ficts, that
Mr. Blaine has been elected president by a
3iuU plurality, notwithstanding lint -the
leading republican papers and most
wealthy and prominent men, f-uch as Win.
Vandi rbilt, Jay Gould and others have ful
ly and freely conceded Cleveland elected,
and many of them have already sent t-4c-grams
of congratulation to bim.
Mr. Blame telegraphs from Augusta,
Maine, to Chairman Jones, of the rational
committee, that he believes nimself fairly
elected president of the United States. As
it is certain his knowledge and belief is
based only upon information furnished by
the chairman of the republican committee,
the dispatch cau bo taken for nothing more
than a notification to Joni s aud his party
that he is willing to take tho office if it can
bo secured by anv measure or method the
committee can devise to accomplish that
end, fair or foul.
If Mr. Blaine should honorably and hon
estly bo entitled te a vote giving bim any
plurality whatever, no law-abiding true
man wishes it to be otherwise declared or
given; and if ho has not, no f-fl'ort on his
part to securo such 11 result by unfair meas
ures ought to receive tho approval of any
voter, whether of one or tho other party.
Tho very foundation of the government es
tablished by our forefathers under the con
stitution rests up.'U the principle of a mi
nority submitting to the will of tint major
ity, when expressed and declared according
to tho forms of law as provided. It is to
the bent interest of all, without distinction,
to resist any attempt to defeat candidates
who havo been elected by securing a major
ity or plurality of all the votes. There is
great danger, as Washington and others
foresaw, when party zeal leads men to go
beyond and overriht and justice to secure
Minorities arc, if there is a difference,"
more deeply concerned in the inviolate pro
tection nnd preservation ol this right than
majorities, and ought to frown down any
attempt to gain a temporary advantage by
questionable methods. If wo cannot do
this, then u lf govetnment is already prac
tically a failure. Without stability and a
hearty acqniesetico in tho expressed will of
the majority wo cau not hnpo for tho long
continuation of a government of, for and
by tho people.
Wo have too much confidence in tho
sense of right In the people to supposo
thoy will permit' reckless nnd desperatu
pattisansto endanger tho institutions of
the country. Everyone should rocngniau
tho paramount duty ho owes to tho country
regardless of mere personal advantages or
disappointment. Ask nothing but right,
submit to nothing wrong.
We see no reason to apprehend anything
other than a fair and honorable count of
