Colvmuus, 0., Oct. 6. — Secretary of State
Jas. W. Newman returned Saturday from a
tour of eight days in northern Ohio, and left j
for his home in Portsmouth to-day. The j
previous night he addressed a rousing meet- j
Ing at East Liverpool. During the trip Mr. ,
Newman took in the northwest counties,
where it is conceded that the Democrats will
make large gains this year, and also the i
Western Reserve, where the Republicans are |
talking about gains. He found it true that
the Democracy was growing rapidly with the
developementof the northwest section, and
that the Western Reserve is also awake to
the cause of the Democrats.
Mr. Newman says: "I never saw the
Democrats in Ohio working bo enthusiastic
ally and intelligently as in this campaign.
I did not meet a single despondent Demo
crat in all my travuls over the state. In the
northwestern counties the outlook never was
better. They will, without an exception of
any special locality, £jive the largest Demo
cratic majority that was ever known in that
section. All of the county organizations up
there have resolved to increase their majority
over last year, and they are confident they
can and will do it. They have a. large
reserve vote, and it will all be out next
"How do you find the outlook elsewhere?" 4
Crossing over into the Western Reserve, I
was irratlfvinKlV surprised at the situation. I
went there expecting a wet blanket and to
tind the Democrats discouraged and par
alyzed. Blame had been swinging around
that section and Logan charging through it.
I Imagined our friends would be over
whelmed, but, to my surprise, I met here
the most enthusiastic and jiil/ilant Deino
erata that 1 found anywhere in the state."
"What effect did the presence of Blame
and 1-ogau have:"
"The hippodrome lms not frightened the
Demoeratsai all. In [act, they were laughing
at it. They said they expected to hold theirown
and in tome places make heavy ixains. The
most gratifying meeting 1 have had was at
Warren, Trumlnill county, where Logan had
just made ■ stand. In Masoning county,
and especially :it Ebongstown, tbe Demo
crats expect to make handsome gains. If
the Republicans expect victory from gains on
the \'\ i tern Reserve they will ebe sadly dis
appointed, At One place 'here was a factory
where fourteen Republicans had come out
for Cleveland, and would vote the Demo
cratic state ticket They called themselves
"How ilo you account for this outlook on
the Western Reserve!"
"Weß, tfce Democratic gains here are due
in a great measure to removals as well as to
manj changes for reform in administrative
affairs. In one county I know they fell
short last year L,300 votes. They said they
could not tind them, and Investigation
■bowed that about that number ha>l moved
away. In the northwestern counties the
Democrats nave tbe swing, and new resi
dents are constantly owning in to join the

Biaine goes this time in ttiu close

it. The leading Democratic speakers of the
country have been summoned to address the

the Sabbath, and on which occasion the

He has wrong contributions out of . men
whom other Republicans could not approach,

successful work in this direction yet
accomplished. The Warner-Miller crowd
are consequently jualous of him. They have

running a canvas or begging the cash that

Mr. Heine's cause so much good that, in the
event of Mr. Maine's election, results favor

motive — Platt's return to the senate. So
they are all lighting Platt and Platt naturally
is fighting back. This and the quarreling

pARKEKSBCEG.W.Va., Oct. G. — AtGrafton
there whs a large and remarkably enthusi
astic meeting. The little mountain town
was packed full of people from the surround
ing country. Mr. Biaine was escorted to a
stand where Hon. John W. Mason intro
duced him to the people. When the demon
strations with which he was received had
subsided, he said :
li Citizens of West Virginia, as your dis
tinguished chairman has remarked, I am
not a stranger to your state. I have known
it personally for more than forty years, and
I have known this section of it well.
I was bora on the banks of
yonder river a few miles below the point
where it enters Pennsylvania, and you do
not need to be told by me that there was
always uuity ol feeling among the inhabi
t.-iits of the Monougahela valley. The West
Virginia of forty years ago was compara
tively a wilderness. The West Virginia of
to-day is a prosperous, industrial centre In
the United States. West Virginia, as an
independent coininonr.-eallb, begau her ex
istence during the civil war, and at that
day, the most liberal estimate of
total property according to tti»»
enumeration of the United States j
census, did not exceed one hundred millions
uf dollars. In IS7O the census gave you an
aggregate of one hundred and ninety mil
lions, and in ISSO it showed that you pos
sessed a capitalized wealth to the amount of
three huudred and fifty millions of dollars.
From the eiose of the war to the year 1880,
West Virginia had, therefore, gained in
wealth the enormous sum of two hundred
and fifty millions. You have fared pretty
well, therefore, under Republican adminis
tration. Probably some political opponent
does me the honor to listen to me, and I
would ask him as a candid ma n
wnat agency was it that nerved
the arm of industry to smite
the mountains aud create this wealth in
West Virginia* It was the proteoHre tariff,
and a financial system that gave you good
money. Before the war you never had cir
culating in your midst a bank bill that would
pa-.s current live hundred miles /rom home.
You do not to-day have a single piece of pa
per money circulating in West Virginia that
is not good all around the globe; not a bill
that will not pass certainly in the money
markets of Europe as in Xuw York or Balti
more. So that the man who works for
day's wages knows when Saturday night
comes that he is to be paid in good money.
Under the protective tariff your coal indus
tries and your iron industries and the wealth
of your forests have been brought out, and
it is for you voters of West Virgiuia to say
whether you want this to continue or whether
you want to try free trade. I make bold to
say with all respect th.it Ui*re is not a Demo
cratic statesman on the stump in West Vir
ginia conspicuous enough to be known to
the nation (I speak only of those I
know) who advocates a. protective tariff.
Igo further. I do not know a Democratic
statesman who will acknowledge that a tariff
for protection is constitutional, and there-
lore, as honest men, they are bound to
oppose it. The Morrison tariff bill would
have struck at the interest of West Virginia
in many vital points, and its an ■ amazing
fact that representatives in congress from
West Virginia voted for that
bill. There is a good old - adage
which I beg to recall to your minds, that
"God helps those who help themselves," and
if West Virginia is not '-willing _to sustain a
protective tariff; by her vote and her influence
she must not expect it to be sustained for
her by others. If she wants the benefit of a
protective tariff she must give to a protective
tariff the benefit of her support. lam glad
that lam addressing a southern people, a
community who were slave holders, a
community made up of those who were
slaves, but I am addressing a slave state no
luuger. lam appealing to tbe new south,
and lam appealing to West Virginia not
to vote upon a tradition or a
prejudice. Not to keep her eyes to tbe rear
but to look to the front and to trie future, and
if I could be beard I would make the same
appeal to other southern states, to old Vir
ginia, to North Carolina, to Georgia, to .Ten
nessee and to Louisiana. They arc all in-
rested in a protective tariff, and the ques
tion is, do they prefer to gratify a prejudice
or to promote general prosperity! West
Virginia can lead the way. She can break
this seemingly impregnable barriar of tbe
solid south. Solid on what? Solid on a
prejudice, solid . on tradition, solid
upon doctrines that separate tbe different
portions of the Union. Whereas I invite
you to join in a union, not merely reform,
"ttut a union in fact, and take your part in
the solution of the industrial and financial
problems ol the time. If West Virginia
takes that course on the 14tb of October she
will do much to settle the controversies that
now agitate us. The report of tho protective
tariff, according to the terms of the Morrison
bill, would cost West Virginia a vast sum of
money. Between IS7O and 183') you gained
this state $1G0,000,000. Between 1880 and
1890 you will gain much more with
a tariff for protection. But I ask
any business man if be believes
you can do it with free trade. Here 1 close
my words of counsel, leaving the action to
vnu. 1 leave you as a community influenced
by 4 sectional feeling, but as a community
broadly national. I leave you as a »tate
allied on the one side to Pennsylvania and
"ii the other to Ohio, as much as you are to
Virginia and Kentucky. I leave you at a
state that stands in the van of the new south,
inviting the whole south to Join in a great
national movement which shall in fact and
in ■ feeling, as well as in form, make us a
people with one union and one constitution.

The Election in Connecticut..
Hartford, Conn., Oct. 6.- The town
elections of Connecticut occurred . to-day.
The principal political interest in the elec
tion was town officers, and a vote upon the
constitutional amendment, 'providing for
biennial sessions of the legislature, the elec
tions for state officers being already biennial.
Five years ago a similar. amendment was
voted "down by the people. It will be of no
party or political significance whatever it
j may be, both parties being divided upon it.
The towns also voted upon the question of
Returns as far as received indicate that
the constitutional amendment is carried by a
large majority. Many towns that voted
against the amendment five years ago voted
for it this year. The result of the election
for town directors, so far as heard from, does
not indicate any material political change.
The constitutional amendment providing
for biennial elections of members: of the
legislature and biennial sessions carried by a
majority likely, judging from "present re
turns, to reach and perhaps exceed 1,500.
The vote against it five years ago was over
24,000. Railroad interest worked for the
amendment, and other corporate interests
have favored it, as they desire to be less fre
quently exposed to hostile legislation. There
was no organized effort to defeat the amend
i ment. The compensation of members of
I the legislature will be $300 and a mileage of
! twenty-five cents- per / mile. There
was no party significance ' in
the vote on the . amendment. In
the elections for town officers the Repub
licans fully held their • own in . the
state generally, compared with last year.
In Hartford the Republicans and Democrats
united on candidates for town clerk and
register. The Democrats elected a majority of
the selectmen, which with the town clerk
comprise the board of registration of elec
tion. The vote in this ~ city is about two
thirds registered, and that will probably be
about the ratio throughout the state. Hart
ford voted for lower license by a majority of
1,680. The cities generally vote for license,
while many of the smaller towns vote against
it. These will probably number considera
bly more than half the towns in the state.

tributing "no license" votes.

Dear Sis: I am in receipt of your circular
letter of Sept. 20, l£S4,atkinir for a contribu
j tion, "accordlne to my means and interest
. In the campaign," toward enabling the Re
• publican party to ' "triumph in another na-
I tional election." Permit me to say that, as
a Republican., the whole . extent of my "In
| terest" is to have the Republican " party cue-;
ceed whenever it represents fair ..' principles
, and nominates lot the higher offices ; men of
undoubted inteerity. In the present cam
paign, according to my judgment, the Re
publican party seeks to retain power by ; a
complete abandonment of principle, by an
attempt to match the masses with equivocal
generalities that ore not intended to receive
practical execution, and by pressing for elec
tion to the presidency a person whose integ
rity, to say the least, is not undoubted. Suc
cess under such circumstances would neces
sarily Impair the usefulness of the Republican
party, if not entirely obliterate it. and would
not, as you profess to believe, be of benefit to
the community at large. You will pardon
me, therefore, If I prefer to withhold my, sup
port from the Republican state committee
until the time shall have arrived when it
shall again represent, as it has frequently
done in the past, the right side of the ques
tions that most concern the welfare of the
people of the United States. Yours, very re
spectfully, . . .." • '

[N. Y. Times, Rep.l
The insult and dishonor of James G.
Blame's nomination is resented not only by
the voters of the Republican party, but by
the very electors who have been appointed
to give expression and effect to their will as
as indicated at the polls. In another column
we print a letter .from . a Republican elector
in one of. the . congressional districts of this
state in which he makes it very clear that his
feeling toward the candidate for whom he is
expected to vote as presidential elector is one
of utter contempt. He asks if we can show
him how he can vote the Republican ticket
and still retain his self respect, and to that
question j there can be but one answer. To
those whom partisanship blinds or native
dullness robs of the power to distinguish any
of the grades of wrong doing below arson
and highway robbery, it may seem that the
act of voting for B'.aiue involves no question
of self-respect. The elector whose letter we
print is evidently of another opinion, and
while there is but a very • remote probability
that he will ever be called upon to exercise
the function Of his office, we see no course
open to him but to resign from the ticket
and plainly give his reasons.
Eleventh Legislative Bolters.
Special Telegram to the Globe.)
Fargo, Dak., Oct. G. — The bolting conven
tion for the Eleventh legislative district met
to-day at Hilsloro. There were twelve per
sons present from Grand Forks county, and
the eastern half of Trail. The nominations
lor council were: George E. Bowers, editor
of the liillsboro Banner, ond Dr. W. T. Col
lins, of Grand Forks. For representatives,
A. Steenson,\of. Trail; Theodore Holton, . of
Grand Forks; E. P. Day, of Nelson, and the
Steele county nomination was referred to the
committee. Major Hamilton, who was a
regular delegate in the Hillsboro conven
tion, refused to participate in it, and say 9 it
was so far from a representative body he
would not recognize it. This leaves the field
clear for the nominees of the Larimore con
People's Convention at Lanenboro.

Lxkesbobo, Oct. 6. — The People's conven
tion to nominate a county ticket was called
to meet at the town hall in this place Satur
day, but there being no such ball as the town
hall the netting was organized at the office
of Dr. J. R. De Coussens.
A full board was put in nomination, con
sisting of N. F. Terwilllger, of Highland, au
ditor; Thad Wilkins, Spring Valley, sheriff; .
'J. K. Jones, Chatfleld, county attorney;
William Thatcher, county surveyor; Ellas
Lint Preston, court commissioner.
The representative ticket is: P. Mangam,
Fountain; Ashael Nye, Jordan ; K. Ilatton,
Preston ; Ole Iverson, Lanesboro; J. Jack
sen, Crendhal, and represents all the politi
cal parties except the Prohibition
I>rm<irrntir Convention at Zumbrota.

Zcmbrota, Minn., Oct. 6. — The Demo
crats of the Second representative district in
the Twenty-first senatorial district met in
convention in Zumbrota, on the, 4th lost.,
and nominated S C. Holland, of Zumbrota,
for representative. Mr. Holland has repre
sented the people of the district before, and
has been a good and faithful servant; he is
a strong candidate, and his chances of being
elected are good. The district, however, is
largely Republican on a strict party vote.

North Branch, Minn., Oct. 6. — The Re
publican adjourned legislative convention to
day reuominated L. P. McKussick by one
majority. There is a great deal of dissatis
faction among the Republicans of the district
and strong talk of an independent candi
date. A good Democratic nominee will
stand a fair show of election. The Demo
cratic convention meets next Friday and
will put up the next representative for. this
\ In his painful and labored defense of Mr.
Blame, Gov. Robinson said at Springfield
that if every Republican would carefully
censlder tbe charges against Mr. Blame, bis
name would not be taken from tbe flag; in
other words, tbat Mr. Blame could not be
compelled to withdraw. Tbis does not speak
very well for tbe moral perceptions of either
Gov. Robinson or tbe Republicans generally.
The charges reterred to are in the letters
written and signed by Mr. Blame himself.
He there convicts himself of falsehood, of
what is very like subornation of perjury, of
using his official position for private gain,
and of calling attention to bis use of tbe
speaker's position to benefit railroad cor
porations, in language which even he thought
might be •'indelicate." If Gov. Robinson
is satisfied that a man self convicted of
tbese charges ought not to have his natnc
'■taken from tbe flag," well and good.
When, however, so partisan a man as the
governor turns out to be intimates that it
may be necessary to take tbe candidate's
name from thf flag because other Republi
cans have not been willing to shut their eyes
and ears to wrong as he has, it shows very
plainly bow strong the demand must be. —

Hayes! Hayes! Rutherford B. Hayes!
The name seem* familiar and calls up misty
recollections clad in half forgetfuiness.
Come to think of it Rutherford B. Hayes ran
! for president in 1976, was defeated by a
quarter million majority, but accepted a
j stolen presidential title, cheated the men
who cheated him in, served through a presi
dential term, saved most of bis salary, and
j then retired to forgetfulness to enjoy life.
The country heartily tried to forget Hayes
and his history, and had succeeded pretty
well: bat now and then be turns himself
up and flaunts his stolen presidency in tbe
face of the nation. After a rather protracted
silence, Rutherford B. Hayes turned btaself
op at N'orwslk, O-. on Monday, to receive
Mr. Blame, and Mr. Blame in turn intro
duced Mr. Hayes to the audience, and Mr.
Hayes made a speech in favor of Mr. Blame.
the Incident is notable, because it proves
that Rutherford B. Hayes still lives, how
ever forgotten by the country, and it proves,
| al»o, tbat Mr. Hayes is determined not to
■ allow tbe people to forget tbe shame of bis
fraudulent presidency. Turn the rascals
oat.—l'hi'tdeip/na Time* (Ind).
Mr. Blame said at Toledo last sight that
j bis defeat would give the "narrowing dogma
i of state rights tbe precedence in tbat grand
march which has been, and which could only
1 be, made under the ba&oer of broad aatioa-
ality." This spreading generality wag ap
parently intended to touch a line of diseue- -
sion that would awake the slumbering ele
ments begotten by the ciril war without
evoking hostile critioism for such pushing of
dead issues to the front. Mr. Blame knows
there is no danger from the old state rights
idea of the constitution or from the policy
the south would pursue in case an adminis
tration succeeds to power in which that sec
tion feels an especial interest. The trouble
will be in an opposite direction, ia the pre
valence of too latitudinarian views respect
ing the duty of the general government. The
great probability would be that the south
would exhibit too much earnestness for the
"old flag and an appropriation." It is,
therefore, very cheap electioneering to as
sume that state rights is an issue of this cam
paign. — Bostvn Transcript (Tnd. Hep.)
One of the oldest and stauuehest Republi
can papers in Connecticut, the LitchJUld En
quirer, has been overcome by the last batch
of Mulligan letters, and bolts Blame. In a
vigorous editorial it says, among other
things: "The new Mulligan letters will prob
ably convince a few who were not before
convinced that Mr. Blame was engaged in
railroad transactions which he has at various
times, and with more or less directness, de
nied. The former letters show that, while
denying positively in congress that
he had ever received $64,000 from the Union
Pacific Railway company.directly or indirectly
for himself or anyone else, there was a
letter in existence in which he acknowledges
having received the money, but claims to
have paid it over within less than forty-eight
hours after receiving it to persons he was
trying to protect. The new letterE show that
while in his speech in April. 1876, he denied
having any dealings with Thomas A. Scott
regarding Little Rock and Fort smith bonds,
he had in point of fact sold him $100,000
of those bonds. In the same speech he^
asserted that he had bought some of those
bonds in open market at the same prices as
others bought them, and he sends a letter to
Warren Fisher to 9ign and return containing
the same statement, plainly intending to have
it believed that that was all of his dealings
with those bonds. Yet these letters show i
that he na J dealt largely in these bonds and
had received over $120,000 in them 1 as a
reward or commission for such dealings, and
that he did not purchase them in open mar
ket as others did. We can not come to an
other conclusion than the above from read
ing these lutters. If any other reasonable
explanation is possible, our columns are
open for the publication of such an explana
Mr. Blame's triumphal march across the'
state of New York demonstrates the fact that
the people want to see Mr. Blame, but won't
pay 25c for the privilege. This was brought
out very conspicuously at Waterloo — a name,
by the way, more or less suggestive of
the winding up of Mr. Blame's campaign.
Mr. Blame was to visit the county fair
in progress at Waterloo, along with the
fatted calf and other products of the farm,
' and tba managers were to collect twenty-five
1 v cents a head for admission to the fair on
that interesting occasion. Mr. Blame came
as announced, and a large crowd followed
his carriage to the fair grounds. It ia not
stated whether Mr. Blame paid his way
through the gate or not. It is presumed
that he did, inasmuch as he i* known to en-
tertain sentiments against being - a dead
bead in auy enterprise after he ' has
once embarked in it. But the crowd
bad no such scruples, and, knocking
the gatekeeper down, rushed pell-mell into
the iuclosure after the ''plumed knight,"
without money aad without price. It was a
sad blow to the fair association, and leaves it
iv a somewhat crippled condition. The in
cident did not cast a gloom over the entire
community, as gome may . imagine, as by
this means the community was enabled to
see Mr. Blame and the fair at the same time
without putting up a nickel. Agricultural
associations along the line of the Blame
march should cut this out and paste it in

the people of Dublin would rise bodily in
