THE MAINE r:LECTION:
The unexpected result of th
Maine election shows the effect or
the policy of precipitate resumptior
on which Republican leaders based
their chief hope. They sought to
take advantage of a ge .eral and
very natural desire of the people
to have a fluctuating paper curren
cy m.ude tquivalent to gold by be
ing made redeemable in gold. Tii.
people wanted a currency with a
fixed purchasing power, and that
is just what they want now. The
Republicans sounht to forestal:
Democ atea by adopting and urging
Jacksonion and Bentonian hard'
money doctrine. Their zeal outran'
their discretion, and they overshot
their mark. They adopted a mens
are and plan of resumption that
worked an immeasurable hardship
to the debtor classes, adding to
commercial stringency, hastening
the already rapid shrinkage in
nominal values, increasing the del
eterious consequences of over pro
duction, adding to the growing:
dilficul y of borrowing money on
any species of property, creating
in attificial demand for gold and
silver, and interfering vio:ently
with the laws of trade. The peo
I ple have been i-lowly c.:ming to a
right conception of the situation;
and they find that they have been
sufferers by a remorse!ess machine
policy, adopted without apparent
consideration for any other inter
ests save those of creditors and
speculators in coin, stocks, bonds
and bankrupts' assets.-N. O. Pic

t Majir Burke, above all others;
y deserves the thanks of our people
r, for the ability and energy display
t- ol in organizing and condnucting
, tie campaign of 1 874 and 1876 in
SNew Orletn. These qualities made
a him const,icuous in the late war
1 and his administrative ability found
a suitable fied in developing the
resourses of eexas and rendering
n them efficient in sustaining thc
" armies in the field. Prior to thd
y surrender he lad pro:j:.ctcd on a
r- grand -cale a tystem of workshops
