Chicago, Aug. 9. — It was a doleful day for the
lulls on 'change, the market being relentlessly
hammered by the bears and prices pounded
down on everything except ribs and pork. Tlie
usual bear arguments bobbed up serenely —
lower cables, dull New York markets, brilliant
weather, liberal receipts, moderate shipments
ami favorable reports concerning the harvesting
of spring wheat.
"Sick, sicker, sickest; tell 'em that; it's the
Snch was the answer made early this morning
by an ordinarily very busy broker to a query as
to the opening on 'change. The broker sat in
bis office with his heels on top of his closed
desk. He puffed leisurely at a good cigar and
mechanically flipped kernels of corn into the
spittoon, as he continued:
"You never saw me sitting around like this do
ing nothing did you? Neither did any body else.
But i in going to sit right here till lunch time,
and uf ter lunch, if nothing turns up, I'm going
to sit right here all the afternoon. I tried all day
yesterday to sell 5,000 of September wheat at
81c, but I couldn't do it; to-day there's no use
trying. Do you play billiards? Haven't yon
got time, eh? Well go and write up your story :
there's nothing to say, bo you'd better take your
time to it."
The fact of it being Saturday probably had
something to do with the extreme, apathy of
everything and everybody on change, but be
tween the antagonistic influences of prevailing
tow prices and bearish reports it is easy to see
how no one would care to do more than was abso
lutely necessary to protect his deals. The most
depressing report circulated to-day was that
when next week's statement of the visible supply
was posted it would show an increase of in the
neighborhood of 3,500,000 bushels of wheat The
probability of so large an increase is scoffed at
by the bulls, who regulate their opinions largely
according to the New York statement which docs
not include the amount of wheal in the
Minneapolis and St. Louis mills. There arc very
fow speculators, however, who do not foresee a
gradually growing increase from now on. The
grain markets were weak, lower and greatly de
pressed. There was nothing in sight to make
the general situation less heavy than It had been
for weeks. September wheat closed at79J«c, a
drop of %c since yesterday, and September corn
at 51c, a drop of %c. Provisions showed more
strength than train, but not more life, and lard
fell 5.-, closing at $7.85 for September. Pork
for that month went up from §10 to S-0, and ribs
showed the only real strength manifested and
went up 20c for Augustand September and 13 l /;C
for October. The closing figure for September
wassB.2|J. No afternoon board Saturdays.
Wheat was weak in the opening. September
was lower at 80 lie, but hud a brief season of
strength under some buying to cover shorts.
About this time the bearish Influence began to
get iv their work aud leading houses such as
Baker, Counsolman, Schwartz & Dupee, Lester
and others begun selling. A report from Toledo
to Cart says that the movement so far this week
would make from 1,000,000 to 1,500,000, increase
'n the next visible supply report, and a large in
crease in transit t<> Europe, making the amount
much larger than it any previous year at this
time. Induced a good many holders to let go,
and from io o'clock there was a pretty steady
iccline to the close, Which was at 79. 7 >c for Sep
tember and 81!bC for October.
W. T. Baker A Co., sold a very large lot of
long wheat to-day, estimated at from 500,000 to
760,000 bushels. It is said to have been prop
erty bought at a good deal higher figure and car-
ried along for a good while. Conservative trad
ers irenerally were telegraphing their clionts to
day that purchases of good wheat now were safe;
that much furl her decline was out of the ques
tion, ami that the only risk now was that of a
long wait. It is generally admitted that an ad
viun-c may ootoome snedily; that there may be a
long wait. Those risks are less than are usually
taken iv wheat speculation. The chances aro
jood on the other hand for a magnificent profit.
"Wheat," said lyrus 11. Adams, "may go to
r."ic a bushel, but it ls low enough now to en
:ourage us all to buy 'fivers.' and put them away
and forget all about them."
"All the bear arguments have been dis
ccunted," said Frank Kennett, "and I advise
buying wheat and averaging it down if it de
clines a few ceuts. The long side, at present
prices, i- sure to pay in the end."
M limine, Bodman & Co., however, sing a dif
ferent song. They say: "There still seems to
bo good iv the deal and the bulls are fearful of
the result when the receipts of spring begin to
increase as they surely must in the next thirty
days. The disconsolate holders of long stuff
are ready to grab at auy straw, but there seems
to be nothing of that frail nature tendered them
and only the sellers are happy.* 1
Corn opened weak at 51^c for September, vjc
off from yesterday's last prices, aud fluctuated
through the session about as wheat did, being
largely controlled by the same influences. The
whole market was weak and heavy and the clos
ings were at 51c for September and 49*»c for
October. Keport had it that the crowd were
generally sellers and that Bangs and Schwartz &
Dupee were particularly so. Mr. Schwartz says
however, that he sold no more than he bought.
Oatt were steady, slow, and not much wante d
rlosing at 25c for September — a decline of J%c.
The lirst No. I oats sold at 25>ic.
The event of the day occurred in the provision
pit. From some cause or other a slight decline
ln the price of ribs took place about 10 o'clock.
Ii was then quickly deraoustated that Cudahy A
Qteiiusd— not own them all as various Toms,
Dicks and Harrys immediately rushed in very
anxious to get rid ot their small loads. They
seemed Io think that Cudahy had concluded ribs
had got to the top, and was disposing of his
dinga as quietly as possible. This, of
course, made the small fry anxious to sell out
also, and they did but they now have the satis
faction of knowing that the holdings of Cudahy
A StMtera are augmented by just the amount of
theirs this morning and that the price has gone
back to its highest point and about 10c beyond.
The opening price ot September ribs was §3.70,
snd the close $>.9.i, .
Tbe fact !s becoming apparent now that sellers
»t pork did not confine their operations to Jane,
July »nd August, as was a little while ago pre
sumed. The fact is that the shorts of one montb
ago no sooner filled than the put out lines for tbe
next month. September pork moved up to-day
to S2O. and in all human likelihood will be $24.
where August is. within another week. In fact,
it could not be bought for less than that to-day,
but no one could get it except from Armour, and
he wouldn't sell for less than $34.
Trailing was rather light in the lard market
.and prices ruled s<&loc lower and closed qniet at
$7.35 for September and $7,474 for October, a
drop of 5c from yesterday's _gt figure*.
Trade opened exceedingly dnU in the cattle
market and remained qniet throughout. Prices
were lower, the decline varying from 10 to 23c.
Range cattle, which comprised a Urge proportion
ot tbe aappjy, showed the greatest chance. No
very fine droves were offered. There was a dull
and lower hog market, sales showing an average
decline from Friday of sc. Poor to hest light
made $5.50®0.53, while packers' grades sold at
$5.40(0 ''• About all were sold.
Ilamill & Brine, in their weekly review ot the
markets, say: "Wheat has ruled quite weak,
owing to depressing udvices from Europe, caused
by favorable weather for their harvest
operations. Like conditions also ex
isted here, and the "crowd" were free
sellers, predicting an avalanche of receipts and
unprcccdently low prices in tho near future. The
latter feature, however, was existing before the
laid raid, as the records for the past twenty-five
years fail to disclose as low a range for No. 2
spring wheat as was then current, and in the
United Kingdom wheat has not been so low for
104 years. While not disposed to urge un
willing buying on the part of our friends, we de
sire to place ourselves on record as favoring pur
chases at preseut prices, believing that, as an
investment, no existing security is as safe, or
can promise a better return to the buyers. With
a good crop of. good wheat in this country (but
not an excessive one), and with the aggregate
yield of Europe, admittedly somewhat un
der an average, we can see no reason
why all experience should be ignored, or that the
wild expectations of professional bears should be
realized, where all the conditions of the bread
stuffs markets of S the old world point in a differ
ent direction. \\|j| therefore advise careful buy
ing at this range of values by parties who are
willing and ready to protect their purchases,
with the view of holding through any further
"There has been some increase ia the receipts
of corn, but they still remain far below the ave
rage of former years. Orders for No. 2 have
been received which could not be filled, owing to
the unprecedented scarcity of cash corn of that
grade, stocks being so low that deliveries on
August contracts have been very limited.
Values, however, have receded during the
week, influenced largely by the depression
existing in wheat and by the fact that corn
relatively is much higher than any other cereal
speculatively dealt in on onr markets. Crop
reports continue fairly favorable, although the
very low temperature of late throughout the corn
belt has modified the very glowing accounts of a
fortnight ago, and it is now known by experts
in estimating growing crops, that while corn
generally is in somewhat better condition than
last year, it is still backward as coniuared with
the average for years, and will require contin
uously hot weather to produce the best results.
The value of corn for year delivery is now based
on the very best outcome of the crop, and we
think it too low to Warrant anticipation of much
profit. Reports from Kansas are very favorable
and that state promises again an abundant
yield. We feel that the long options will,
before the close of the season, show
a profit on purchases mad"i now, even though the
nearer ones should not advance materially. The
small stocks everywhere render the chances of a
sharp advance in the near future highly prob
able, and should wheat advance, as we believe it
will, corn will sympathize promptly.
"Trading in oats has been liberal since our
last, and prices showed some improvement early
in the week, but later,— sympathy with all other
speculative grain, values have slightly receded,
and the close is quiet at a slight decline. The
new crop has not'yet commenced to move freely,
harvesting having been in many sections inter
ferred with by unfavorable weather. It is now
gcneially conceded that the yield will not reach
that of last year, and we feel that purchases
made about the prcsest range will pay a profit."

Milwaukee, August 9. — On 'change wheat

New York, Aug. 9. — The fluctuations in shares
during most of the day were sufficient to satisfy
only those who made quick turns nnd accepted
small profits. After rather a brash opening,
which brought out considerable stocks, prices re
ceded, only to be followed by another rally. After
these ups and downs the market settled and be
came dull aud uninteresting. The bank state
ment was an improvement over last week's, the
reserve showing an increaso of about $1,000,000.
The bulls appear to control the situation, uud
move prices up easily when so disposed. Busi
ness centered in the Grangers, Lake Shore and
l'nion Pacific. The latter was strong, and,
though not n favorite with investors, There
is a short interest in it sufficiently large to ad
vance it at any moment. Among the lighter
properties Missouri, Kansas & Texas appears to
be the favorite. The market continued dull
until about nn hour from the finish, when some
free selling of the Vanderbilts commenced. This
proved contagious and there was a stampede all
through the list. The cliqnes sold stocks and
appeared to be willing to assist the decline.
When the day closed quotations throughout were
as a general thing lower than the final figures of
last evening, so the bears will probably consider
that they have gained a trifle on their opponents.
The market closed with free selling and much

An Ugly Spot in Blame's Character
Under Investigation by the

CniCAao, Aug. 9. — The newspapers supporting
Blame, which have been dragging personalities
into the campaign and villifying Cleveland be
cause of a slip made in his youth and atoned
for to as great an extent as possible, will prob
ably be compelled after to-morrow to abandon
the offensive and adopt, the defensive, for the
faint rumors of grave lapses from virtue on the
part of the "Plumed Knight" will then have as
sumed the form of direct charges, supported by
affidavits. Believing that there was more truth
than was apparent in the charges of Blame's
misconduct in Kentucky, the Times sent a special
correspondent to Millersburg, where Blame
taught school, with instructions to probe the
matter to the bottom, "_ The correspondent's re
searches brought out some very damaging facts
which the Times of to-morrow will print. They
are in substance that in ISSI while Biaine was
teaching school there he accomplished the ruin
ot a young lady, a fact which was so notorious
in the village at the time. So well were the facts
of the case known that the
correspondent, even after the lapse of time, was
able to secure affidavits from a number of prom
inent and responsible citizens, showing beyond a
doubt Blame's degradation, and these the Times
will pnblish in snpport ot its assertions. It
looks as if the Republicans would be placed in
a position where they will devoutly wish they
had never started a mcd-slinging campaign.

EX-GOV. WALLER'S VIEWS.
Speech of the Famous Connecticut Re-
former at Albany.
Mr. Chairman and Fellow Citizens — I was one
of the committee appointed at Chicago to notify
the candidates of their nomination. That duty
has been in part discharged. The committee no
tified Gov. Cleveland that, in all human probabil
ity, he would have to move in the spring.
[Laughter and applause.] To-morrow the com
mittee will repair to Saratoga and thereby notify
Thomas A. Hendricks that the Chicago conven
tion renominated him for re-election, at Chicago.
I Cheers. I We will all take from your beautiful
city the pleasantest recollections of your universal
hospitality. The people everywhere will read
with satisfaction of this auspicious opening of
the presidential campaign in this the capital city
of the Empire state. They will learn that here
in Albany, the official home of Gov. Cleveland,
he is held in the highest esteem by those who
know him best. | Cheers. | The Chicago con
vention meant in their action, and the adoption
of platform and selection of committees to meet
the public expectations of that great majority of
the people of this great country who are in favor
of honost and economical government. |Ceeers.J
The platfoam of the Democratic party is
unequivocal; on the tariff, it is sound. The
Democratic party declares that it is
the true policy of statesmen not to raise one
dollar from the people that is not necessary
for the support of government. What
Democrat would favor raising any
more? What Republican would say he was
in favor of taking a single dollar from the peo
ple's pocket that is not absolutely necessary?
There is but one other point and that is in rais
ing that money, it shall be so managed as to in
flict the least injury to American labor. In
other words, the Democratic policy, or that
which the Republicans say is the only issue of
the campaign is in favor of raising as little
money as possible and
SO TAXING THE PEOPLE
That the interest and labor of America shall be
best protected. What Republicans, anywhere,
will dare stand before the laboring men and tell
them that the Democratic platform on that sub
ject is at fault? Nay, more, it goes further.
There is not a word in the Demo
cratic platform that is opposed to the principle
that, in raising taxes, it shall be so
managed that there shall always be discrimina
tion in favor of what we raise and make in this
country. If any man says that you belong to a
party that is in favor of raising more money than
is necessary, point him to Blame's letter of ac
ceptance. After he has raised §100,000,000
more than is necessary he wants to distribute it
back again. | Great applause.] Does anyone
believe in such statesmanship as that? No, that
will do for the marines. | Cheers. ] It will do
for the Mulligan guards. [Great cheers and
laughter.] We are too old to swallow such stuff
as that. Now, another point. The Republican
party has no hope of success except in the dis
sensions and divisions of the Demo
cratic party. Now, mark that. Their
tactics will be as futile as they
are mean and contemptible. They say that they
are in favor of the workiugmen and labor. Do
you believe it? Look at the records and yon will
always rind. — thank God for the records — that
where odious laws have been passed Democrats
have repelled them. Mark another point. They
say the Democratic party shows religious in
tolerance. Shades of ancient history protect us I
Whoever dreamed that iv 1384 the sahcems of
the Know-Nothing order in 1851 wocldbe finding
fault with the Democratic party because they
were opposed to religious tolerance. When you
are marching over them Democrats, remember
LEAHER OP THE P.EMNANT
Of their once great party in 1851 advocated the
infamous doctrine that foreigners were coming
to this country too rapidly, and should be kept
out. They said that men of certain religious
persuasions ought never to be allowed to hold
office. These are the real issues of the cam
paign, and the tariff issue is only raised to de
ceive you. Let me say that your co-workers are
looking to you for help and aid. If you fail
here, corruption will thrive for another political
decade at Washington, if you keep up the rights
to fight among yourselves, and then, when
the nomlnotiona are made, come forward united;
if you exercise conciliation, and stand by the po
litical faith of your fathers, then the star ronters
and Mulligan Guards will not be the plumed
knights in our politics forthe next four years.
Remember that the tight you are making is for
the glory and advancement of our great country.
Stand together, so that we shall hear, on the eve
of election, news from New York, so that the
papers can say that Connecticut and New York
are side by side geographically, are side by side
in the great march for Cleveland aud Hendricks.

THE LABOR VOTE.
A Prominent Leader of Workingmen
Says it is Not for Rutler.
I Special Telegram to the Globe, j
Chicago, Aug. 9. — One of the most prominent
leaders of the labor organizations in this city ex
pressed indignation to-day at the continual pub
lication in some papers of the statement that
Butler has the labor organizations at
his hack and "for a month or so
past this has been said again and
again in one of the morning papers, and, in fast,
it is quoted in a great many papers all over the
country, that Ben. Butler has the labor organi
zations, the Socialists and the Greenbackcrs at
his beck and call. Well, sir, it is not true —
"Why, was not Butler nominated for presi
dent by the organizations?" asked the reporter in
"No, sir, he was not."
lhls was said with a perceptible tinge of
"You seem to have fallen into the same error
as the papers I spoke of . The facts are these:
Ben. Butler received the nomination at the
hands of a handful of so-called anti-Monopollsts-
Greenbackers, and Liberal leaguers. But these
are not the same as the labor organizations.
There are at least 50*0,000 m embers of such or
ganizations in the country. There are
20,000 of them here in Chicago, trades
assemblies. Knights of labor, socialists and
Greenback labor men. None of these organiza
tions want Butler, nor have they nominated him.
The truth is that all such labor associations ex
ist only for the purpose of raising the standard
of wages, of regulating strikes aud apprentice
ships, and for all other measures tending to the
advancement of the labor interests. Their aims
are not political, but social ones. The
members belong to either of the two
great parties are either Democrats or Republi
cans. These organizations are debating socie
ties as well, in which the merits of the various
candidates of their parties and platforms may be
discussedonce in a while. But these are merely
side issues, and to my knowledge no concerted
action has been taken— nor is it in contemplation
— for the indorsement of Ben Butler or of any
other candidate. The members are at full liberty
to pick out for themselves a candidate to their
"How is it one hears so much of the Greenback
labor party, then?"
"Oh, that is due to the fact that this party
used to play a big game onee — in 1876 and in
1880. But they have no party organization now,
except in a few states, like Michigan and lowa, and
even this holds true only as to the Greeubackers,
but not the labor organizations. Papers like
the Chicago Tribune, which try to make it appear
that the labor organizations have declared in
favor of Butler and aredofng their host to break
up the Democratic party — such papers simply
misstate the facts in a palpable manner. There
is no Butler movement at work among the labor
ing men that I know of."

fined and understood so that the contract could
be executed, and a meeting was held at the head
quarters of the St. Paul & Duluth road yesterday
for the purpose of finally considering the terms
and settling the matter. The meeting commenced
at 10 a. m. und continued till 1 :80 p. m. Those
present were C. L. Colby, president of the
Wisconsin central; F. W. Finney, general man
ager of the same : J. J. Hill, president of the
St. Paul & .Manitoba; P. M. Myers, secretary
of the Milwaukee & St. Paul; E. W. Winter,
assistant president of the Chicago, St. Paul &
Omaha; H. P. I'pham, and James Smith, Jr.,
president of the St. Paul & Duluth road. The
last five gentlemen constitute the executive
board of the St. l'aul & Duluth road. The meet
ing was strictly private, no one but those above
named being present. The result of the confer
ence was a disagreement as to one or two minor
points. What these points are was not made
public. They are not serious, however, but
another meeting will hove to be held to finally
settle the terms.
Tlie Northwestern Fulls out of the Pool.
Chicaoo, Aug. 9. — A climax has been reached
In the affairs of the Western railway trunk line
association, formed undor what has come to be
known as the tripartite agreement, in the for
mal announcement by the Chicago & Northwest
ern railway of its withdrawal from the association.
The result was not entirely unlookt-d for, as the
strong probability of such an event was indicated
in their dispatches early during the present week.
It is confidently anticipated that the Wabash
management may follow the lead, leaving the
hock Island, Milwaukee & St. Paul and L'nion
Pacific, the original members, the only ones re
maining in tbe pool. It has been contended on
the part of the Itock Island that in the event
of the retirement of tho two roads in question
it would hold tho l'nion Pacific to the terms of
the tripartite agreement, and compel it to turn
over all its business at Omaha to the Rock Island
and St. Paul roads. The general view expressed
by railway officials here, however, is that the
compact cannot now be easily maintained, but
the matter is one which can only be determined
by the lines still remaining a party to it.

Red Caps vs. Crescents.
The St. Paul Red Caps met the Eau Claire
Cresents yesterday afternoon at the West
Seventh street park, in the presence of several
hundred people. The home club had things
pretty much as they liked up to the ninth inning,
scoring three times in the first inning, twice in
the third, and once in the fourth, the visitors
securing a solitary run in the sixth. The ninth
inning, however, was an uproarious oue
throughout, reminding one of the
ball playing at the "deestrict"
school twenty years ago. The Ean Claire willow
wielders tumbled to Poucher's deceptive curves
aud hit the ball so hard that tho home team got
rattled all around, and the sum total of the in
ning was six runs, the visitors having an advan
tage of one run. St. Paul then went in and
scored the tying run on errors. In the tenth in
uing Eau Claire was blanked and St. Paul se
cured the necessary run. The score by innings
is appended :

Unconqnered rs. Invincibles.
These local teams, composed of doctors, real
estate men, insurance agents and other "riff
raff" of St. Paul, crossed bats yesterday after
noon, the former winning by a score of 23 to 14
The length of the names of the teams is perhaps
the most noticeable thing abont the whole outfit,
but a moment's reflection will convince one that
they are correctly applied. The "Unconquered"
got the larger score, but the "Invincibles"
played with only eight men, the presumption
being that they either expected to win thus
short-handed or else one of their men had
been killed in a former match. At the close of
the game this was offered as the chief excuse for
the big opposition score, (A professional club
would have been sharp enough to put the whole
matter on the umpire's shoulders). Consider
able blame is also laid at tho feet of S. D. Cun
ningham, Invincible center fielder, and it is darkly
hinted by certain kickers that he lost the game.
It is claimed that had he been provided with a
large apron he would have covered himself with
glory. The game was hotly contested in spite
of the fact that it was a cool day, forthirty-seven
runs were made, and it is just as far around the
bases for a doctor or insurance agent as it is for a
boot black or a professional player. The men-
Unliable features of the game were two
double plays by Severance and Chuntler and
a home run by McNair. The same teams will

THAT "CLEVELAND SCANDAL"
The Exact Facts in an Infamous Cam
[N. Y. Evening Post.]
The Boston Journal, which has had a great
deal to say about what is called "the Cleveland
scandal," asks us to investigate the matter for
ourselves, and says it "knows it can lead only to
one result," relying on our promise not to "sup
port a notorious libertine nnd profligate" as a
candidate for the presidency of the United
States. There hus been from the begiur-ing but
little to investigate, and that little we have in
vestigated to our own satisfaction. It is admit
ted by Governor Cleveland's friends that twelve
years ago he formed an irregular connection with
a widow, with two children, the eldest fourteen
years old; that she was a person of intemperate
habits, aud that the paternity of a child born
subsequently was doubtful, but he accepted it,
and made provision for the child: that after suf
fering much annoyance from her — one of the
natural and common penalties of such errors —
and after satisfying her brother-in-law, who ap
pcared on the scene as her protector, that he
had behaved fairly toward her, he laid the whole
matter before Mr. Burroughes, a lawyer of
high standing in Buffalo ; that Mr.
Burroughes advised him to leave it
to him, and thereafter took charge of it; that he
(Mr. Burroughes) conceiving the mother, for the
reasons given above, unfit to have the custody of
the child, placed it in an orphan asylum, the
mother consenting thereto, and making, as we
understand it, a legal surrender of the child for
that purpose, and occasionally visiting it at the
asylum afterward; that she subsequently stole
and carried it off from the asylum ; that Mr. Bur
roughes was notified of the facts by the authori
ties of tho asylum, whereupon, acting ou his own
responsibility and without Mr. Cleveland's
knowledge, he employed a detective to discover
and look after the child ; that in one of the de
tective's visits he found the mother suffering
from delirium tremens and threatening to kill
the chiid, which lay on the floor ; that he carried
her off then to the inebriate asylum for treat
ment, and she stayed there until she was cured
and no longer, and that the child was restored to
its previous guardians. The lawyer who acted
for the woman in one stage of the affair has for
mally and in writing repudiated the charge of
seduction or breach of promise of any kind. The
family acknowledge that Mr. Cleveland treated
So much for the charges of seduction and kid
napping which many newspapers have been
spreading, lt amis produced originally by a cheap
and nasty paper iv Buffalo as salvation from im
pending death, and has little other evidence to
rest on except the bare assertion of the Rev. Mr.
Ball, a Baptist minister in Buffalo, who appears
to dabble a good deal of politics. Mr. Hall has
repeated his story several times, but he does not
Biipply fresh reasons believing it.
lie also is the chief if not the only authority
for the story that Mr. Cleveland ls "a notorious
libertine aud profligate." Well, we may as well
say frankly that we think there could hardly be
a poorer authority. We mean no disrespect to
the profession when we affirm that accusations
of this sort brought by ministers are to be re
ceived with exceeding caution. They can know
nothing personally of the immoralities of
men who are not members of their con
gregation. What they learn about them is
sure to be heresay, the tattle of busy-bodies
who are delighted to be able to tell the pastors
of the wickedness which is going on among
people who make no pretense of being religious,
and they are apt to receive it with a credulity
which is sometimes very unfortunate. Then
there are, as we all khow, ministers and minis
ters ; some who are large-minded, cautious and
charitable men of the world in the best sense of
the term, and others whose denunciations pass
us by as the idle wind. So that while we do not
mean to accuse Mr. Ball of dishonesty, we do
say emphatically that he himself needs a good
many certificates to his sober-mindedness and
fair-mindedness and the purity of his motives
before he can be allowed to make away with any
man's private character in the midst of a politi
cal canvass. If Cleveland is a "notorious profli
gate and libertine," why did not Mr. Hail not
know it when he was elected mayor of his own
city in 1871, and when he was elected governor
of the state in 18821 Aud if he did know it,
why did he keep silent?
But we are not dependent on Mr. Ball's weak
nesses, whatever they may be, for Mr. Cleve
land's vindication on this point. We take it. for
granted thut in bis case, as in that of other men,
the way to find what arc his best known vices,
especially the private and personal ones, is to
ask his neighbors in the place in which he lives.
This is and must be the true seat, of his notoriety
if notorious he be. We must assume that con
sidering the size of the vote which he received
for the mayorality of Buffalo, and the fact that
li iv majority was largest in its best quarters,
Cleveland cannot have been a notorious libertine
and profligate, or a libertine and profligate at all,
in a small place, without being notorious. And
yet, the Hall story has taken everybody, appar
ently, but Hall, by surprise. After bis nomina
tion some of the heartiest testimonials to Cleve
land's excellence as a man and a citizen came
from soch opponents as the Buffalo Express and
the Buffalo Commercial. Both of them am now
somewhat shocked to lind that he is the kind of
man Mr. Ball describes, but apparently never
dreamed of it until Mr. Hall spoke. Is this not
most extraordinary? Could it happen except in
a Presidential campaign?
Cleveland's virtues are those which bind human
society together, and in which states are founded
and maintained. There has been no great bene
factor of tbe human race who has not been truth
ful, faithful to his trusts, disinterested, self-de
ii} ing. There have been very few who have
been chaste. Blame's viceß are those by which
governments are overthrown, states brought to
naught and the hnunts of commerce turned into
dens of thieves. The standard by which some
ministers now propose to exclude Cleveland from
high place would have prevented Washington,
Frankiin, Jefferson, Hamilton, not to go any fur
ther, from taking any prominent part in the
foundation of the American republic. It would
have excluded from office in England nearly ev
ery great statesman or reformer of the last hun
dred years, except, perhaps. Komilly, Wilber
force and Gladstone. It would have visited
nearly every prominent politician in the Repub
lican party Bince 18G0 with popular odium. It
would, hail the Democrats chosen to apply it,
have defeated oue Republican candidate for the
presidency by charges worse by far thun Cleve
land's, in that th'.-y added the sin of broken vows
to the sin of incontinence.
We are not defending incontinence. Chastity
is a great virtue, but every man knows in hi
beart that it is not the greatest of virtue*, that
offences againßt it have often been consistent
with the poateeelon of all the qualities that en
noble human nature and dignify human life and
make human progress possible, it ought to be
preached and practiced by every mail to tbe ut
most of his ability, but no one ought to preach it
with any other motive thnn the spread of virtue.
and least of all for the purpose, oh in the present
case, of making come of the basest of vices — the
vices that sap everything that is valuable in so
ciety and politics — teem respectable. Preaching
of this sort, at this time, is cant, and cant in i:»
most loathsome form, for it fills every hon-< hold
in the land with filthy suggestions and butane*
tions, turns lhe press into a common sewer, and
converts scores of editors into hypocrites, who
must blush in Secret over their own ridiculous ser
mons and their simulated righteousne^:^. We
will not. for our own part, help the Hepublican
at tbis crisis in an attempt to capture the presi
dency for a trickster, a* Joshnacapinred Jericho,
by the aid of a harlot. Great as its faults are, it
deserves a less ignominious end than this.

THE CHOLERA EPIDEMIC.
A Very Interesting Paper hy Consul
Mason on the Working of the
Washington, Aug. fl.— Frank H. Mason,
United States consul at Marseilles, In a dispatch
to the state department relative to cholera at thai
place and Toulon, says: "It appears that, not
withstanding all progress in medical science and
the very perfect arrangements for collecting and
treating the Btricken victims of the scourge,
more than two-thirds of those attacked have died
even during the first fortnight of the epidemic,
when all sanitary conditions were most favorable,
The almost immediate transmission of the dis
ease from Toulon to Marseilles and the enormoui
death rate of seventy per cent, in the
earliest stages of the epidemic,
seems to prove that sanitary science
and medical skill have made but little substantial
progress in dealing with Asiatic cholera. A sec
ond feature of the present epidemic is ttfe rigor
and deadliness of its attack as compared with
that of the last great cholera summer, 1805. The
rapidity and violence of this development are at
tributed in some measure to the intense, damp,
stifling heat which prevailed during most of the
days since the 30th of June. There are physi
cians of judgment and experience, who maintain
that dessication is the only effective destroyer of
the choleraic microbe on a large' scale, and that
dry, hot weather, while it may be unfavorable
for the already attacked, is most effective in
staying the spread of the contagion. Another
noticeable feature in the present
visitation has been the simultaneous
and sudden appearance of the malaria in all
in all parts of the city of Marseilles. Fugitives
from here have died at Aix, Grenoba and other
towns in southern France, but the epidemic has
has thus far not been kindled there, nor have any
persons been attacked except such as brought
the contagion from this city
or Toulon. In view of the enormous migration
which has occurred since the outbreak, three
weeks ago, is estimated by good authority a
100,000 persons from Marseilles and 50,000 from
Toulon, and the distribution of this vast contin
gent throughout France, Switzerland, Italy and
the Netherlands, it is noteworthy and encourag
ing that no authenticated case of cholera has oc
curred among the army of fugitives at any point
north of Grenoba. Although a great number of
Italian working people left the two stricken cities
for northern Italy during the early days of the
epidemic, -the disease has not, apparently been
carried with them, or if it has, it has not
yet developed. Nothing in all the dispute con
cerning the origin and cure of the disease has
added any effectiveness to the means hitherto
known for treating cholera patients, and the pro
portion of deaths to the cases appears to increase
rather that diminish. A momentary gleam of
hope was diffused by the announcement that
patients bad been rescued from the collapse stage
of malady, at the hospital in Toulon, by the in
halation of oxygen, but this encouragement has
been clouded by the discovery that the effect of
this powerful stimulant was but temporary, and
the patients thus treated finally died in the same
ratio as those treated by other methods.
