TBE CHICAGO NOMINATION.
"The unexpected always happens," was a
favorite saying with General Garfield. The
unexpected, ■ did happen at Chicago Fri
day last in the formation of the Republican
National ticket. By people generally this
ticket is indifferently received. It does not
touch the country with anything like the
force the nomination of Garfield and Arthur
did four years ago.
Both the candidates are devout believers
in the spoils system. Both men represent
the narrowness of a personal system, rather
than abroad beneficent policy,' with possibili
ties as boundless as the requirements of the
Thoughtful men in all parties have long
regarded Mr. Blame as the most dangerous
politician in the country, and all that class
of citizens might, well tremble, were there
any possibility that he will become President.
James G. Blame is more of a politician
than a statesman, is positive, impetuous and
imprudent. As the head of Garfield's cabi
net he made things lively in his partially de
veloped foreign policy, stirring up strife and
developing a warlike spirit, and had Garfield
lived, his Premier would most likely have
involved the country in a war with some of
the South American states, or humiliated and
wronged the weaker sister Republics.
He has a sensational element in his char
acter which is mistaken for brilliancy, but he
lacks that persistent, evenness of action that
leads to solidity and stability of accomplish
His election would draw around him a
reckless crowd of political adventurers who
would be eager to illustrate on the first fa
vorable opportunity the character of public
plunderers. His election ' would block the
wheels of reform. Reforms are imperative,
needed for the public welfare and safety, and
they can only be secured by a change of -ad
The election of Blame would precipitate
the official corruption, and bad personal fa
voritism that has been the disgrace of ad
ministration and a blight upon public inter
ests, ever since Grant's first advent into poli
tical power. It is high time to put an end
to these abuses, by bringing to the head of
the government capacity, integrity and
During the progress of the campaign Mr.
Blame's personal political record will be
thoroughly ventilated, his-Tin savory Mulli
gan escapade, and his crookedness in Credit-
Molilier ways will be reproduced' with start
ling scenic effect. Corruption i' permeates
the purlielus of all the departments in Wash
ington, festers in official hiding places and
degrades the public service.
To displace the old, unscrupulous, purely
selfish dynasty, and replace it with a new, de
voted patriotically to the reform of gigantic,
and crying abuses, to maintain public and
official honesty, and to promote the general
welfare of the whole people, and not of a
class only, is the great and responsible work
before us. • . '.>V. •'-J-
It is enough that the ticket made ;at Chi
cago Friday will afford the country a cam
paign of the greatest excitment and despera
tion. But it is a ticket that cannot be elect
ed. The time has come when the Republi
can party must go. ■ Blanc is its evil genius.
THE PERILS OP' CITY LIFE.
There is danger to a greater or less degree
to health and life in living in large cities.
This danger arises from the use of impure
water, from bad sewerage, and from the
adulteration of milk, from unhealthy meats,
and the immense adulteration that is carried
on in the putting up of prepared food. The
people do not begin to be impressed with the
fatal consequences induced by the use of im-
pure water. It is difficult to obtain water in
large cities absolutely pure and wholesome,
and the apathy of the people,,and their care
less inattention to the subject is most amaz
ing. ' A Philadelphia journal is trying- to
arouse the people of that city to their danger
and the ( proper remedy. What is * true of
Philadelphia .is true of eyery city, and it is
the duty -of the ':' guardians j of the " people's
welfare, the official authorities, to give most
careful attention to the . perfection of sewer
age, and to the : supply of pure and whole
some , water. ,-, No proper . expenditure
in this direction • can be too
great. ;: For what is the expense of pre- \
paring proper sanitary safeguards, compared
with the preservation of the health and I the
Uves of the people? It is not - enough to get
water in sufficient volume, 'it is ': a deadly
curse, unless it is provided free from impuri
ties. "The impurity of water is a source of
disease and death that has not been properly
appreciated. "- j--'v-
_l The Philadelphia paper mentioned, .'.'• dis
cussing the cost of bad sewerage, remarks
that objection is made to the preamble of the
Sewerage Commission ordinance because :it
speaks of "a large, annual ■ death rate." It
is admitted that compared with other \ great
cities the death rate of'- Philadelphia '.' is -- not
the largest, but from 187S to 18S2. the . num
ber of deaths rose per thousand - from 17.97
to 22.62' and a very large proportion . of this
increase is renresented by deaths from zymo

'_,'■; Some statistical items are given like the
following;" the number of deaths from dip
theria, for example, doubled in the five years
referred to increasing from 404 in 1878 to 933
in 1883. The deaths. from typhoid fever in
creased from 404' to 050, the increase of pop
ulation in this period being not more, than
eleven per cent. This number of deaths from
typhoid represents several thousand cases,
each one of which stands for at least six
week's loss of time in illness and convales
cence, with all the accompanying cost.
In conclusion says the paper quoted,if any
one will take the trouble to figure this up,
he will find that our bad sewerage, bad wa
ter and bad plumbing cause a direct loss to
the community every j year of more than
would pay for the needed sanitary improve

' Senator Edmunds now says that the Chief
Justiceship of the United States is the only
office that would tempt him out of the United
States senate. However that may be for "sour
grapes," the Senator's residence at Washington
is . a modest two-storied and mansard-roofed
dwelling on Highland Terrace, on Massachusetts
avenue, and facing the fine equestrian statue of
General George H. Thomas.' A subcrb tree that
overshadows it is the finest of its belongings.
The Senator can be very genial in private.
An eastern paper says that of the prominent
members in congress no one quotes more from
the Bible than S. S. Cox, He frequently has the
single copy in the possession of the congression
al library. Bennett and Dowd, both of j North
Carolina, read the bible during sessions. The
former recently had a copy at his desk for two
weeks. He expects to become- a minister when
his congressional term is ended, Southern mem

do northern members. *.'."
Samuel J. Randall ' was born in Phidadel
phia in a house opposite Independence hall, on
the day that Andrew Jackson carried Pennsylva
nia for the presidency. He was named after
Samuel Jackson, a physician. His father was a
lawyer and a Whig; his mother, was a daughter
of an officer of the revolution. Mr. Randall
says he is not a candidate for the presidency as
long as Mr. Tilden is in the field, which is cer
tainly a very wise conclusion for Mr. Randall.
It is said that Stephen B. Elkins, Mr. Blame's
chief confidential manager at Chicago, is the
only man . known • to have escaped from
the meshes of Ferdinard Ward's net. Mr., Elk
ins is understood to have invested 840,000 in the
"contracts,'.' and the profits he derived from it
were so enormous that he reasoned that they
must either be dishonestly gained or at a great
risk, and so drew his money out.
Since the death of Gen. Babcock, what hag
lways been known, is much more openly stated
and commented upon, namely: ' When Babcock
was indicted for complicity with whisky ring
frauds, and the fate of McDonald and ' Joyce
would have been his also, but Gen. Grant, then
president, corruptly interposed and saved him
from conviction, though he had loftily said in
reference to those same whisky ring . thieves,
"Let no guilty man escape."
It was quite in keeping with a propensity of
the age to propose a concert for raising a fund for
the benegt of a crematory project in Pittsburg.
In casting about for . attractions, Annie Louise
Cary (Mrs. Raymond) was asked to sing, and by
way of complimentary recognition ot the favor' it
was proposed to issue to her a certificate enti
tling her to the free cremation of | her remains.
With a shudder she said, "I should as soon think
of buying my own coffin," and she declined the
tempting proposal. . t, N
The vivid descriptive powers of Rev. Dr. John
Hall never received a more appreciative than that
from Bierstadt. In the course of a sermon, to
which the artist was a listener, Dr. Hall gave a
description of a western prairie. Such an im
pression was made upon that auditor that he
made the descriptive incident the theme of paint
ing, which he sent to Dr. Hall, stating that as he
was the author of the picture he i.ught to be the
owner of it.
The Detroit Evening Journal says: " Japan
ese women know not the . use of pins. Their
beaux have more fun in hugging than Americans
do, and they don't have to wear boxing gloves to
do it either." We don't believe the Journal
man puts on boxing gloves when he hugs his
best girl, says the N. Y. Graphic.
The Prince of Wales confesses that he went to
France "to get rid of the condolence everywhere
tendered him on account of the .death of his epi
leptic brother, for whom he cared very little, and
can't see why other people make such a fuss over
him." The prince was an affectionate brother,
surely. V ;■'.-.;
It is said that the widow of Samuel F. Donnel

time in getting out, but as there are no water
facilities in that portion of the city the build

"But the scent of the rose will cling to it still,"
—or words to that effect. ; All the eloquence
lavished upon Jim Blame in the convention
will not wipe out the tattoo marks with which
he enters the campaign. This is the feeling
of all thoughtful Republicans whom : I have
met to-day. He was nominated in . the ex
citement of a mob, and I commend to those
who howled their wild and frantic > acclaims
yesterday the following passage from Gen.
Garfield's speech four years ago, nominating
John Sherman: * '-".: ■"" "'•"
"Sot here, in this brilliant . circle, where fif
teen thousand men and women are gathered, is
the destiny of . the republic to be redeemed for
the next four years. Not here, where I, see the
enthusiastic faces of seven hundred and fifty-six
delegates waiting to cast their ballots into the
urn and determine the choice of the republic—
but by four million of Republican firesides,where
the . thoughtful voters, with wives and
children about . them, with the . '. calm
thoughts inspired by , love of
home and country, with the history of . the past,
the hopes of the future and reverence for the
great men who have adorned and blest our na
tion in days gone byburning in their hearts
which will determine the wisdom of our work
to-night. Not in Chicago, in the heat of June,
but at the ballot boxes of the republic, in the
quiet of November, after the silence ■of deliber
ate judgment, will this question be settled.
The eloquent words of the last president
are as applicable in 18S4 as is ISBO, and the
thoughtful voters will not cast their ballots for
James G. Blame. The declaration of the
New York Times this morning (the leading
Republican paper of the United States), is
significant, it said: :_.'.. .:_:,':u' £ f ; j
"One word as to the position of the Times. It
will not support Mr. Blame for the presidency."
The Blame men and the Blame papers
have jeered at the "New York independents"
so-called, all through this convention week,
styling them "political dudes"; but they
will find in November, that ' "the man who
cannot carry New York" has been made
their standard bearer. That is the cheerfifl
outlook for the Republicans. It only re
main s for the Democrats in July to make no
mistake, and victory will be theirs. I con
cede at the outset, that this is a large "if."
The Democrats rarely allow a, chance [ for . a
first class mistake to escape them, but if
Blame is elected it will not be by a Republi
can campaign but by Democratic blunders.
This is now the Republican hope. No less
than four ardent Blame men', who have torn
their linen, shouted themselves hoarse and
pranct d about for a week like Texas steers
in a corn field, have frankly admitted' to me
to-day that their hope and expectation of be
ing able to carry Blame in the doubtful
states . rested . upon Democratic blunders.
They have a g-iod deal of basis - for such
hopes, but such concessions ought to be a
"pointer" for theßth of July.
A CLEANING OUT.
It is astonishing how rapidly the city has
been emptied of the immense throng - that
spent the week in this wicked hamlet. ■■* The
"grand old party" appears to have gotten up
and gone home without saying good bye.'
The living has undoubtedly been pretty rich
for their blood and disastrous for their pock
et books. ' A good many imagined
the convention would continue. but
two days, and scarcely any .looked
for its prolongation beyond the third. It
was undoubtedly the stimulations of the de
lay and temperance memorials which con
verted what ought to have been a delibera
tive body yesterday into a bowling mob.
The trains last night took out immense loads
of those who having secured a dose of Blame
were content to leave without waiting to wit
ness the " Black Jack farce with which the
play was ended. The federal office-holders
could see no further occasion for the expendi
ture of their hard earned " shekels. Their
king was dead, and. the Globe, premonition
that no vice president ever had been elected
president, and never would be, was verified.
There was no further need of keeping the
canp fires going with Jamaica rum or Chica
go whiskey. They accordingly stood not on
the order of their going, but went at once,
and went fast. ' ■";'■ " ';
I strayed through the leading hotels to-day
and felt positively lonesome. I dropped in
to the barrooms and the contrast was abso
lutely painful. They were banquet halls de
serted sure enough, and nothing but tem
perance memorials left to show their lively
agitation. The bartenders were reduced to
two, and those listlessly idle much of the
time, • Where seven have been on the hop,
skip and jump. .If there had been any
doubt about it before I should have known,
with this evidence before me, that "the
grand old party'! had gone home for fear
they might be late to church to-morrow. . If
I had not undertaken the contract of winding
up the show in a blaze of glory,l should have
wanted to go home myself.
: MINNESOTA HEADQUARTERS.
I called at Minnesota headquarters this
morning to regulate affairs and see .that
none of the "Blame boys" got left. I found
Liberty Hall, of the Glencoe ifc^ister,and Sin
clair, of the Winona Republican, gloomily
reading the New York Times editorial, the
one wondering what were the chances for a
"clatter" at the Glencoe postoflice, and the
other nervously meditating upon the proba
bility of being able to "stick" among the
Winona mail bags. I consoled them with
the reflection that while I was not certain, I
thought if we all worked unitedly,' we might
give the electoral vote of Minnesota to
Blame. ;: Langdon, like a fresh ' con
vert , was very' hopeful and thought they
had a : sure ■ thing of , Minnesota. He
did not feel quite so . positive about New
York, but the Blame men had been . anxious
for a chance and he extended them the priv
ilege of carrying the state. if,. they could.
Most of the original Blame men of . the dele
gation had gone home, and slowly and sadly,
I superintended the closing up of the head
quarters. I was willing to render almost any
assistance, except pay the . bills. I accord
ingly had all P. P.'s, Minneapolis Tribunes,'

Now I begin to see. The new , Republican
national committee met this morning at the
Grand : Pacific,'and'. organized '.: by .electing
John W. Mason, of West Virginia, tempo
rary chairman, and ■• Col. George W. Hooker,'
of .Vermont, temporary .'■" secretary. _ Senator
Sabin was obliged to retire, under the rules
of the ' convention, and the civil service law,
because^ he was a federal office holder, but he
held the proxy of .; Matthew G. Norton," the
newly elected member \ from Minnesota, and
moved at the meeting to-day . that Messrs.:
Elkins, Chaffee, Lawson, New and - Hooker,
be appointed to select and open a permanent
headquarters: for the committee. The jj com
mittee then , adjourned ■ to meet June 30,' at
12 m. at the Fifth avenue hotel in New York.
It is a good ways from Minnesota to New
York, and it takes time and money to travel;
and wouldn't it be odd .- if ; Senator : Sabin,
whose duties call him to the neighborhood of
New York, should have/ that proxy a con
siderable portion of the time. The . idea
makes' me laugh, almost. Perhaps Senator
Sabin is a member of the national commit
tee by prosy. After all, the temporary vio
lation of the civil service law can be avoided
by calling it a proxy instead of a member
. shipif I may be allowed to paraphrase a
celebrated excuse which .- was once given
when the "grand old party" stole nearly
$200,000 out of the Minnesota state treasury.
There are. said to be several ways of skin
ning a feline animal and it looks to me as
though Senator Sabin had '. cleaned out the
"Blame boys," not only without their
knowing how it was done, but . also without
their knowing what had been done.
; While I am on the subject the record
should; be corrected. It was Mr. Langdon'
and not Mr. Gould who moved the j election
of Mr. Morton at the meeting of the Minne
sota delegation. Mr. Gould was so earnestly,
supporting Mr. Blame about that time that
he did not have time to indulge in any little
side issues such as this. . He had promised
to vote for Blame as long as any of 'em and
he was holding himself together, as it were,
for fear he might not "stick." : v
The ace of spades who appointed himself
on the national committee from the District
of Columbia, attended the committee meet
ing - this morning. The Washington post
master was outside protesting,but he "wasn't
good looking and he couldn't come in."
ODDS AND ENDS.
Stanford Newel's whisker was not visible
to-day. It had evidently gone home with the
Edmunds boom in a coffin. ' - -'"*,'
Liberty Hall authorizes me to say that he
is happy, and may conclude to walk home to
feel the pulse of the people en route. He was
on the committee on resolutions, and but for
the determination of himself and three or
four others to make a minority report, the
high protective plank in the platform would
have been a good deal higher. •
Gov. Barto will not reach home before the
middle of the week. He says be can't go
until he gets a certified copy of his speech
from the ofllcial secretary of the convention.
- Rodgers lost his instructions last night
while looking at a Blame and Logan torch
light procession and took an early train for
home to get another set. The flash of the
Blame torches sort of blinded him.
Bill King went home . last night entirely
happy.. He says the New York.T imes isn't
much of a shower after all. .He styles it "a
Democratic paper by instinct and a Republi
can paper from policy." It represented a
crowd which assumes an "I am holier than
thou" air. [The Colonel is great on script
ures], but in spite of them, Blame will carry
New York. That is if you can feel entirely
confident in the correctness of Col. King's
views. - -
: Dr. Day excused his presence at the con
vention by saying that he came down to hunt
for Bosworth and the delegates accepted his
story so seriously that they didn't save him a
ticket. He went down to the convention to
see if he could crawl under the canvass, but
the policeman drove him off with a club. He
expostulated and protested that he was a post
master, but the doorkeepers told him that was
too thin. They said Arthur ' provided
all the postmasters with tickets and if
he was genuine he would have a
ticket. In utter despair the doctor went
to a • darkey speculator ;" and paid
$25 for a ticket, but, on presenting it at the
I door, he found it was a • counterfeit ? issued
by a man who was advertising soap and had
the advertisement printed on its face. ■ The
police threatened to arrest the doctor for pre
senting a bogus ticket, and he said Arthur
might go to the devil. He took the next
train for home and never' saw the conven
tion at all. -If he goes about town describing
the convention you can set it down as being
as bogus as his $25 soap ticket. • .'
..When Dakota was called to name her rep
resentative on the national committee, the
chairman sung out, "Judge Bennett." I
was seated where I could hear the talk of the
reading clerks. ' "Judge Bennett,", said one
to the other, "what is his first name?"
"Judge Bennett is no name at all," was the
response, but the Dakota delegate haying
apparently gone around the corner for some
thing, did not respond to the call which was
made on him after this Interchange of re
marks and "Judge Bennett" went down on
the list. ' ' ' -

To go about the city to-night . one would

to be, on general principles. Carter Har

tion . 'of . being a pretty

aghast. ; It steps one side ' and recognizes the

. - Washington, June 7.1f the nomination
of Blame and j Logan has ' awakened . any
enthusiasm it certainly has not thus far per
meated the atmosphere of the ' national
capital, except among • Democrats who are
hilariously jubilant at j the hopeful prospect
of defeating them in November next. Very
many prominent Republicans do not
hesitate to express a conviction
that the ticket placed in nomination at Chi

two Republican members of the Honse from
Massachusetts Messrs. Lyman and Whiting
stoutly affirm that they will not support the
ticket. They moreover say that,-' in view of
the repeated insults 'offered! their state by
Mr. Blame when a member of the Senate,
he will not be able to command the electoral
vote of Massachusetts.

' Chicago, June 7.—The races at the. Chicago
Driving park attracted an immense crowd to-day.
The unfinished pacing race came on first and was
won by Flora Belle. The black mare proved too
speedy for the almond gelding, and" he was out
footed after an exciting struggle.'.' In spite of
Flora Belle' having captured two heats Friday and
Westmont only, one,', the unwary ■ betters J made
the latter a favorite at $25 to $15 on ' the field.

| The free for all. trotting race, which brought
out Fanny Witherspoon, Tony Newell and Edwin
Thome, proved the attracting race of the day.
John Splan handled the lines over ■ the Kittson
mare and John Turner drove Edwin Thorne.
Weeks was put up behind Tony Newell. The
latter did the best he could, but it seemed fore
ordained that the two first placed in the betting
should beat per. ' Every heat was trotted in bet
ter than i 2:21 except the - second heat. The
sports had made Witherspoon a favorite, but ad
mirers of Edwin Thorne as readily picked up the
odds. The first pool sold brought ; $70
for Witherspoon, $52 for Thome and
826 for Newell. After - a - fair
start and a "nip and tuck" drive, ' Thorne took
the heat, with Newell pushing the mare too hard
for a finish to win. . The Kittson entry was sent
back to the tail end of the opposition. . The
chestnut gelding also came to . the front in ■ the
second heat, though Witherspoon crept up so
close in a whipping finish that there was not a
hair's breadth hardly between the two when the
wire was reached. . Twenty feet farther and
Witherspoon would have captured the heat. Be
fore this second heat Thorne was placed in the
pool $50 to ■ $46 for the field. | There were
a few sanguine ones who thought | NeweU
might be brought up to win. In reality Newell
but served as a spur for grand efforts by Wither
spoon. The crowd cheered lustily when the - re
sult after each heat was announced.' The sum

The second race was for a purse of $1,000 for
the horse that should take three out of five
heats in the 2:26 class. This race brought ont a
large field of starters and a good deal of enthu
siasm was manifested. May Bird was the favor
ite, the pools selling $20 for the field. $11 for
May Bird and $6 for Bashaw. -The race was
principally noticeable for the close ; finish
in two heats between Index and May Bird.
In the last heat Flora .B, Executor and Glen
Miller were drawn out and Golden Girl was dis
tanced. The pools were at $25 on May Bird to
$42 for the field after the first heat. Before the
third heat the field had dropped back to $10, and
before the last heat was trotted May Bird brought
$25 to $6 on the field. Index won the first heat,
May Bird the second and Bashaw the third, and
May Bird won the next three heats. Index came
in second in the second and third, and Linwood
in the last. Dick Organ took third place in the
second and third heats and Bashaw in the fourth.
,It was nearly 7 o'clock when the 2 :80 ' pacing
race was called,' and most of the spectators had
shaken the dust of the track off their pedal ex
tremities and were turned cityward as the bell
clanged its starting note.'-' There were three
starters, namely, Minnie R., Scot Newman and
Juliet. The latter is owned by Mr. M; Hedges,
and is a speedy pacer, but could not hope to win
from Minnie R. This latter horse has a record as
a trotter of 2:19, or close in that neighborhood.
This was her first race as a -'side
wheeler and she at once showed
that her i trotting ' record can be lowered
if she is pushed. The pool selling, such as there
was, favored Minnie R. at $20 to $6 on the field.
She won the two heats, paced easily, shutting
Scott Newman out in the second heat. The re
mainder of the race will be paced on Monday.
