CLEVELAND THE NOMINEE.
For the third time in succession,
Grover Cleveland has been nomi
wated for President of the United
States by the Democratic party. In
1884 he, for the first time in a quarter
.,f a century or more, was enabled to
lreak through the well fortified a
protected lines of the Bepublican
party and lead the Democratic hosts
intothe itadel of the nation,the White
House at Washington. After a four
years' reign, despite the charges of
imugwumpism made against him, he
was renominated by his party by ac
climation, and though losing this
election by a large majority, his own
State casting her vote against him,
the Democratic party has sufficient
confidence in his abihty and strength
to make him its standard bearer for
another battle against the Republi
With the Farmers' Alliance, Cleve
land is not popular on account of his
opposition to theirviews on the sil
ver question, but there is one thing
the members of this body should not
forget, and that is, if Cleveland so
cepts a nomination on a certain plat
form he always carries oat to the letter
the spirit of that platform. In 188t
the civil service reform doctrine was
made an important feature of the
party platform, and it was the carrying
out of that part of at which gained
for him the title of mugwumlp
The platform of 1892 contains a sil
ver elause, and, mark our prediction,
no matter what his individual views
on the question may be, if Grover
Cleveland accepts the nomination
on the platform adopted, he will arry
out its teachings to the letter it ina
his power to do so.
Tan Paoszus admires Cleveland
because he can be controlled by
neither threats of punishment nor
premises of reward. He is an ;m
placable too to unsermuplou politi
cians, jobs and soaess corpmoration
He has ever proven himself a stma
bling bloek to the unserupulous
schemes of political tricksters, a gi
- aatie bampion of the peopl's
rights. Devod of allof the elemats
which go to make up the sueessmsul
politician, be tands before the world
as a maof the people, a man with the
criage of his convitions so domi
aest in him that neither intimidation
nor bribery ean deter him from the
