The rank and file of the republicans
were, to some extent, excusable fcr refusing
to acknowledge for several das last week
the election of Cleveland. Tho vote in
New York was large and close, and their
leaders on the ground gave them most pos
itive and authoritative assurances that
Blaine had carried the state, and was
elected. Many of them Bccepted these as
surances in good faith, and on their relia
bility thousands of dollars were staked and
lost. Among the large sufferers in this re
spect in Cairo we may mention Scott of tbe
Gazette, but being a newspaper man tbe
loss of a few hundreds or thousands more
or less would make no difference with him,
and George Robinson, also drops a thous
and or so into democratic pockets. .

St. John says one: it was "Rum Romanism
and Rebellion," says another; it was demo
cratic corruption in New York snys another.
Tho Chicago Tiibunesays: "If Cleveland
has been elected president he may thank
Arthur for it more than any other living
man." But proceeding with the discus
sion, the Tribune suggests that the "sub
lime treachery" of Conkling and the Stal
wart school was an ally of Arthur of espe
cial importance. The Tribune concludes
by saying: "The office-holding class will be
able to judgo of the prudence of their
course if democratic influences shall deter
mine the distribution of government patron
age.'' Just so.
The boys should drop the "hoodlum
racket" mid act like gentlemen to-morrow
