(Copyright by Edgar W. Nye.
It is about time, it twins to mo, that
I nhould dally a littlo with th literati
and speak a few words tiro and con re
garding anthors and their works. Un
fortunately I am a great bookworm and
an omnivorous reader. Lately I have
been able, throncb. the infliiem-e of Mr.
Champion, of Stamford, N. Y.. who is
the veteran editor of the state, having
run the name linrMT. 1 think, for over
forty years, to obtain a copy of "The
HiHtory of IMawam Comity," by my
friend and fellow litterateur Mr. Jay
The book is said to : nnote1 now at
$10 per volume, owing to its (rrt scarc
ity and the fact that Mr. Would is on the
watch for all the copies he can Ret, and
that he is Raid to destroy them as soon
aa they are secured. No money conld
purchase my own volume, I asHiire yon,
for it is thoroughly pure in tone, and no
one can read it nnderstandingly without
becoming a Ix-tter man.
After reading a chapter of Connt Leo
Tolntoi and then burning a rag I love to
take down Mr. Gould's "The History of
Delaware Comity" and read it till far
into the silent night.
The book contains 4 ,'ti pages and two
steel plate engraving of men who had
agreed to milan-ribe for it. It is bound
in slate colored cloth, and shows in every
page the lofty purity and noble im
pulses of the struggling young author.
I cannot help while reading "The His
tory of Delaware County" contrasting;
its beautiful purity with the ferocions
and savage cnssedness of Tolstoi. We
conld hardly imagine two more widely
and diametrically different toilers in the
" great Held of literature than Jay Gould
and Tolstoi. ( ne is gentle, refined and
pure: the other a gift-d crank. I have
spoken heretofore to some extent of Mr.
Gould's methods in business, criticising
them in an honest yet unsparing way,
hoping thereby to call bis attention to
the fact that at bis time of life, with all
his means, ho might do so much good
and die so much happier if he would
pan- in his mad race with mammon to
enjoy and invite others to enjoy the in
terest ou his accnmulating millions.
But as a fellow author 1 have nothing
but admiration for him and praise for
his work. His language is highly gram
matical in some places and his sixdling
is above the average. Of course I conld
criticise some of bis methods; for in
stance, such as allnding to himself as
"I" and then again as "we" a little far
ther down the page, but this might hap
pen of course, for he no doubt wrote at
times when he regarded himself as ex
tremely singular, whilst at others he felt
Mr. Gould has a clear cnt Western
Union style of expressing himself by
cntting out needless words, which can
not fail to meet with the indorsement
of all good writers of good English. I
think we should liav Mr. Gould np at
the An thorn' club, and ask him to come
and read from his works. Selections
from the tieker Bnd other little skits of

For the past summer by accident I
have been located in Delaware county,
which is nowadays a great summer re
sort for the elite. It was for many
years the home of the Goulds, and every
hill and valley was familiar to Jay, the
bright young author. It was there that
he got together the material and pub
lished his map of Delaware county. It
was a bright and extremely attractive
map, with pleasant, fragraut varnish on
It. Although Mr. Gould does not think
it begins to rank with some f his other
and later literary work he does not in any
way feel tliat it was unworthy of him.
Tolstoi, on the other Land, is a man of
genius, bat he decline to make himself
at all submissive to the constitution of
the United States or the ordinances of
the town. Tolstoi tells the truth, but 80
does the coarse member of congress, per
haps; yet the editor of The Congression
al Record wisely removes some of the
choicer idioms of 8ieech with a pair of
tongs liefore he prints it.
Tolstoi tells some disagreeable truths,
but he ought not to refer to them as
literature. Descriptions of the treatment
of botts and bog cholera are not un
truthful, and yet they should be so la-
RKAIIISO TOLSTOI AND BURNING A RAO.
buled and so entitled that those who may
be Buffering from botta or hog cholera
will be able to get bold of the book and
no one else.
That Is what I like about the writings
of Gould. He calls his book "The His
tory of Delaware County," so that those
who want a history of Delaware county
may avail themselves of it. lie does not
call it "The Kreutzer Sonata," and fool
musical young ladies aud girls in panta
lettes into reailing something that does
not concern them.
Mr. Gould's work shows great famil
iarity ' with quotations also, most all of
them closing firm. He shows a literary
style somewhat resembling that of the
author of "Hay's Arithmetic." It is
clear, nervous, jerky, disconnected, some
thing after the methods of Noah Web
ster, but more pure and chaste, I think.
Referring again to Mr. Gould's slight
tendency to regard himself as plnral
even in his younger days, I will quote
from "The History of Delaware County."
It seems that the anti-rent excitement,
which had shown itself in Schoharie
county in 1H48, waB B,1Ccessfully intro
duced into Delaware connty in the fol
lowing year, and on pages 2H0-S inolu
ive Mr. Gould sjaks of an incident
which occurred. Roxbory was the first
to suffer, and the distnrliers were, it
seems, disguised as Indiana. They were
what the prosperous young author called
artificial Indians, for Jay i Uot above
sly little bun niota and little squirts of
refined humor as he goes along.
It would seem that during the sum
mer of this year these Indian outlaws
showed the first "act of hostility on the
6th of July upon the premises of John
B. Gould, who, regardless of the threat
andtbe timely warning of the associa
tion to desist from blowing his horn, had
continued to use it as a signal to call bis
workmen to dinner. Upon the day in
HOPE TO APPKAR IS SOSTK CHOICE
question he had as usual blown his horn
at noon, when five Italians, equipped
and armed for fight, presented themselves
at his door and demanded redress for
the insult he had given to the authority
of the association. A spirited and angry
discussion ensued, when they were com
pelled to retreat from the premises to
the tune of the 'Old King's Arm Shell.
"Smarting under this nn welcome de
feat," says Mr. Gould, "a second com
pany was dispatched the following Tues
day to enforce submission, and with in
structions to seize the gun and horn, and
if necessary mete out to Mr. Gould a
salutary coat of tar and feathers. The
sun had just arrived at the meridian
when, a favorable opportunity present
ing itself, the signal whoop was given,
and the savage horde, springing from
their hiding phu-es, and with demon like
yells, rushed up ami surrounded Mr.
Gould, who was standing with his little
son in the open air in front of the house.
"We were that son."
Here is where Mr. Gould slips a gram
matical cog. He for the moment seems
to anticipate his own future and regard
himself as the president, board of di
rectors, general passenger agent and con
ductor; and, even if it be proper to nse
the plural first person under those cir
cumstances, would it not have been more
elegant to have said "that son was ns?"
It seems so, we think, to the thinking
But later on Jay says, "Oh, the agony
of my youthful mind as I exjiected every
moment -to iwhuld him prostrated, a life
less corpse niMiti the ground:" In this
sentence he again resumes the singular
nnuiber. He also refers with much
vigor to the great lack of vitality so no
ticeable in a corpse. In this, however,
he is not alone. Others have noticed it.
It only remained for a trenchant pen
like that of this virile young anthor to
Mr. Gould's liook cannot fail to please
those who love a turgid, clear cut style
such as we find in a little book by an
nnknown author called the "List of
Names and Xnmliers of Telephone Sub
scribers in the City of New York." There
is no snrplnsage in the writings of Mr.
Gould any more than there is in the
treasury of his forth irations after he has
drawn his salary. His langmige is di
rect, forthwith and free from rhetorical
While he does not apenl perhaps se
strongly to the passions or the supreme
court as Tolstoi does he writes with a
symmetrical, easy rnnning stylo which
reminds one o the "Proceedings of the
State Dairyman's Association of Ver
mont." Mr. Gould's n-mie will be proposed at
the fall meet of tho Author's club, of
New York, a social organization which
pmbraces such minds as my own and
that of the author uf "The Little Giant
Joke Book and Choice Songs for Circus
es." I shall offer Mr. Gould's name, and
shall ask to have it acted upon at once,
so that he may avail himself of the
privileges of our club.
Later on Mr. Gould and myself hope
to appear in some choice readings froin
our own works. We will give a pure
evening of refined thought that will
take the fciste out of one's mouth after
reading Tolstoi. Nothing passionate
will le raid at alL Mr. Gould is now
getting an upper register part in his
voice, so that he can successfully hear
himself in Chickering hall.
He will read selections from his "His
tory of Irwaro County" and also from
his map. He will by request also read
the following, which is one of his com
positions, earlier than anything yet jml
lishiMl. and which 1 saw in the original
manuscript this summer. I am not
thoroughly familiar with Mr. Gould's
earlier writiugs, but it purports to lie
his. I give it In-low. It is on the sub
ject of Hope.
"Hope is a real good thing. It some
times springs eternal in the human
briafti for a little while and 'then with
ers. O what should one do if liereft of
hope! They would lie so desiondent,
one would, if they did not have hope,
especially for the future. We can get
along without horei so far as the present
is concerned, but in the future how dif
ferent, and the more we go on from one
thing to another, and still are here to
day and there to-morrow, is it not liet
ter if we must to do those things that
are inevitable with a cheery smile on
each and all, economizing in every way
we can, especially in our operating ex
penses and dividends, thus leaving mure
to lie used judiciously b- ourselves
rather than frittered away on compara
"Hope, O Hojk-! Ho who hath not a
tail hold on Hojie is a wreck on a single
track. O bully for Hojie! On the other
hand, how disatnveuhle is despair!
There is nothing more unipular in the
world today than despair.
"Then let us in our school life always
be hojieful, and eat only such victuals as
agree with us, aud which do not run too
much into money. Let ns eat plain vic
tuals, be hojieful aud friendly to those
who are generous to ns.
"Let useherish Hojie.nnd whenever we
get the means ahead we may buy a little
railroad, or at least enough of it to make
it disagreeable for those who own the
rest of it. Never give way to despair,
especially if you are young; a despond
ent new iKirn bal)e who looks with re
gret on his inst life is a sad sight. I
hojie all such who may read tliis essay
will take courage and do different. So
no more at this time, but you will hear
from me later on. Jas.in Gould."
Mr. Gould and I will read from our
own works in October for the "Benefit of
the I.'fhunmutory Hospitt.d Fund of Lud
low Street." We thought that would be
a pood way to rehearse our selections
and try our voices. Mine is all right,
but Mr. Gould fears that in the more
pathetic parts of his reading he might
have to put some more pitch on the roof
of his voice. He is highly emotional in
all his work, and has brought tears to
thousands of eyes. Please do not buy
your tickets of Mr. Gould. I do not
wish to throw any temptation in his
way. I will furnish tickets to those who

Thinking to deceive the masses of the
people, the congressional campaign com
mittee of the republican party has pot in
circulation a little pamphlet, the cover of
which is printed in red, white and blue,
bearing the pictures of Grant and Lin
coln, and in large, flaring type it is an
nounced to contain the "Republicnn Rec
ord Made During Nine Months of Con
gress: A Federal election law.
"2. A protective tariff law.
"3. Silver restored .
"4. Obstruction knocked out.
"5. A juH pension law.
"6. Contract labor forbidden.
"7. Convict labor forbidden.
"8. An effective eight-hour law.
'9. The American bog vindicated.
"10. A uniform bankruptcy law.
"11. Two more new states.
"12. Six new ships for the navy.
"13. Ilartior fortifications.
"14. Supreme court relieved.
15. Snipping bills."
The Spnniiflil l Jiepub-'inm points out,
with great force and truth, that this al
leged record is a deliberate and contempt
ible attempt to deceive voters.
The list printed above is introduced
with ibe words: "These are anions the
bills ptused." It is true that measure!:
answering more or less closely to the des
criptions here given passed both bouses
of congress in some instances, hnd in
oiiiers passed only one house; but the
object is plainly to miesd ill informed
ci'iz. ns intotbe belief that this is a record
of actual legislation.
The attempt is impudent. In seven
cases out of the fifteen, the republican
committee has labelled as "Uw" meas
ures which failed to become laws.
The federal election bill is not a law;
no contract labor bill became a law; there
was merely a slight modification of the
Isw passed by the Forty-ninth concresj.
Tho convict labor bill failed to become a
law; the eight-hour bill failed to become
a law; the bankruptcy bdl failed to be
come a law; the bill lor the relief of the
supreme court failed to necome a law; the
two shipping hilU failet to become laws.
The item "Obstruction knocked out,"
refers merely to the generally tyrannical
and arbitrary course of the majority in
the house, not to any legilative achieve
ment. The attempt to force a similar
policy upon the senate failed at the lait
session, and therefore, the record might
with equal truth be marie to read: 4
In speaking of thi.-t list we raise no
question of opinion as to the accuracy of
the reput lican description of the several
measures, nor as to their merits. The
point is simply in regard to the state
ment of fact. The intent to deceive is
obvious, and it is a piece of busiDes with
which any gentleman, whether in politics
or not , ought to tie heartily nshamed to
have bis name connected.
E'ght lies in fifteen lines make the
proportion of fraud and falsehood to
truth eight to seven the old republican
