A VIOLENT SPEECH AGAINST THE
SOLID SOUTH.
The Defeated Candidate Boasts to His
Fellow Republicans of How Near He
Was to Victory?He Ignores the
Millions of Northern Democrats, and
Invokes the Wrath of the North
Against the South ? The Black
Boomerang is more than ho can
Stand.
[From the News and Courior.]
ArorsTA, Maine, November 18.?A
largo number of personal and political
friends of Blaine serenaded hiin this
evening as an expression of personal
good will and admiration of his conduct
of the national campaign. They marched
through the streets under the marshalship
o( Col. Frank Nye. When
they readied Blaine's house their compliments
and friendly regards were expressed
in a speech hy Herbert M.
Heath, of the Kennebec bar.
Blaine responded as follows, his
speech being continually interrupted by
applause :
Friends and neighbor, the national
cumcsi is over, aim oy mo narrowest ol
margins wo havo lost. I thank you for
your call, which, if not one of joyous
congratulations, is one I am sure of confidonco
and of sanguine hope for the future.
I thank you for the public opportunity
you give nie to express my sense
of obligation not only to you but to all
the Republicans of Maine. They responded
to my nomination with genuine
enthusiasm, ratified it with n superb
vote. I count it as one of the honors
and gratifications of my public career
that the party in Maine after struggling
hard for the last six years, and twice
within that period losing the State, ha3
come back in this campaign to an oldfashioned
25,(XX) plurality. No other
expression of popular confidence and
esteem could ^equftl that of the people
among whom I have lived for thirty
yours, and to whom I am attached by ul 1
the ties that ennoble human nature and
give joy and dignity to life.
After Maine, indeed along with Maine,
1113- first thought is always of Pennsylvania.
How can I fittingly express my
thanks for that unparalleled majority of
more than 80,(XX) votes, an endorsement
which has deeply touched my heart and :
which has, if possible, increased 1113- affection
for that grand old commonwealth,
an affection which 1 inherited
from mv ancestry and which I shall
transmit to my children.
Hut I do not limit my thanks to the
State of my residence and the State of
my birth. I owe much to tho true and
tea loin friends in Now England who
worked so nobly for the Republican
party and to the eminent scholars nnd
livines \rho, stepping aside from their
ordinary Avocations, made my cause
their cause, and to loyalty, to principle
\dded the special compliment of standing
as my personal representatives in
the national struggle.
Hut the achievincnts for tho Republican
cause in the East are even surpassed 1
by the splendid victories in tho West.
In that magnificent cordon of States '
that stretches from tho foot-hills of the I
Alleghanies to the golden gate of the l'a- j
sific, beginning with Ohio and ending;
with California, the Republican banner
was borne so lofty that but a single State
tailed to join in the wide acclaim of triumph.
Nor should I do justice to my own
lecungs n I tailed to thank the Republicans
of the Empire State, who encountered
so many discouragement* nu<l obstacles,
who fought foes from within and
foes from without, and who waged so
Ktrong a battle that tlio change of one
vote in every 2,(XX.) would have given us
victory m the nation. Indeed a ohnnge
of a little more than 5,OOo votes would
have transferred New York, Indiana,
New .Jersey and Connecticut to the liepublican
staudard and would have made
the North as solid as the South.
My thanks would still be incomplete
if 1 should fail to recognize with special
gratitude that great body of workingmen,
both native, and foreign born, who
gave me their earnest support, breaking
from old personal ami party ties and
finding in the principles which i represented
in the canvass, the safe-guard and
protection of their own fireside interest.
The result of the election, my friends,
will ho regarded in the future, I think,
as extraordinary. The Northern States,
leaving out the cities of New York and
Brooklyn from the count, sustained tfifr
Republican cause by a majority of more
than 4<)0,000. Almost half a million
indeed of the popular vote of the cities
of New York and Brooklyn threw their
great strength nnd intlucnce with the
solid South fciid were the decisive olemcnt
which gave toth.it section the control
of the National government.
Speaking now, not ut all as a defeated
candidate, but as a loyal and devoted^
American, 1 think the transfer of th$
political power of the government to the
South is a great national misfortune. It
is a misfortune because it introduces an
clement which cannot insure harmony
and prosperity to the people, because it
introduces into the Republic the rule of
the minority. The lirst instinct of an
American is equality?equality of right,
equality of privilege, equality of political
power, that equality which says to
every citizen : "Your vote is just as
good, juRt as potential as the voto of
any other citizen."
That cannot be said'to-day in the
United States. The cou|fcb of affairs in
the South has crushed out the political
power of more than a million of
American citizens and has transferred
it by violence to others.
Forty-two Presidential electors arc assigned
to the South on account of the
colored population. That population
with more than 1,100,000, legal votes
have been unable to chosc a single elector.
Even in those States where thej'
have a majority of more thmi 100,000,
they are deprived of free suffrage and
their rights as citizens are scornfully
trodden under foot.
The eleven States that comprised the
Rebel Confedcracj* had by the census of
1880 seven and a half million white population
and 5,300,000 colored population.
The colored population almost to a man
desire to support the Republican party,
but by a system of cruel intimidation,
and by violence and murder, whenever
violence and murder are thought neces
mry, uiey are aosoiuteiy deprived ol
all political power. If the outrage
stopped there it would be bail enough,
but it does not stop there, for not only
is the negro population disfraneiserl, but
the power which rightfully and constitutionally
belongs to them is transferred
to the white population, enabling
the white population of the South to ex- j
ert an electoral influence far beyond
that exerted by the same number of
white people in the North.
To illustrate just how it works to the
destruction of all fnir elections, let me
present to you five States in the late
Confederacy and five loyal States of the
North, possessing for each section the
same number of electoral votes. In the
South the States of Louisiana, Mississippi,
Alabama, Georgia and South Car
olinn have in tlio aggregate forty-eight
electoral votes. They hnvc just 2,800,(XX)
white people and over ;1,000,<XX) colored
people. In the North the States of
Wisconsin, Minnesota^ Iowa, Kansas
and Calfornia have likewise an aggregate
of forty-eight electoral votes, and
these have a white population of 5.(500,(XX),
or just double the five Southern
States which I have named. These
Northern States have practically 110
colored population. Jt is, therefore, evident
that the white nirn in those Southern
States, 1>3' usurping and absorbing
the rights of the colored men, are exertingjust
double the political power of
the white men in the Northern States.
I submi% my friends, that such a. condition
of affairs is extraordinary, unjust
and derogatory to the manhood of the
North. Even those who are vindictively
opposed to negro suffrage will not deny
that if Presidential electors are as
signed to the South by reason of the
negro population, that population
ought to l>e permitted freo suffrage
in an election. To deny that
clear proposition is to affirm that
the Southern white man in the Gulf
States is entitled to double the political
power of the Northern white man in
the Lake States. It is to affirm thit the
Confederate soldier is to wield twice
the influence in the natiou that the Union
Soldier can, and that perpetual and
constantly increasing superiority shall
be conceded to the Southern white man
iu the Government of the Union. If
that be quietly conceded in this gonera
uuii 11 win nanien niu cuniom until the
hadg# of inferiority will nttach to the
Northern white man as odiously as ever
Norman noble stamped it upon tho Saxon
churl.
This subject is of deep interest to tho
laboring men of the North. With the
Southern Democracy triumphant in their
States and in tho nation, the negroes will
be compelled to work for just such wages
as the whites may decree, wages
which will amount, as did the supplies
of the slaves, to a bare subsistence,
equal in cash, perhaps, to 35 cents per
day, if averaged over tho entire South.
Tho white laborer in the North will
soon feel the destructive effect of this
upon his own wages.
The Republicans have clearly* seen
from the earliest days of reconstruction
that wages in tho South must be raised
tothejuat recompense of the laborer,
or wages in the North be ruinously lowered,
and the party has steadily worked
for the former result. A reverse influ
encc will bi: now set in motion, and that
condition of affairs produccil which years
ago Mr. Lincoln warned the free laboring
men of the North, will prove hostile to
their independence and will inevitably
lead to ? ruinous reduction of wages. A
niero difference in the color of the skin
will not suffice for maintaining an entire
l-difl'erent standard of wages in contiguous
and adjacent States, and the voluntary
will bo compulled to yield to the involuntary.
So completely have the colored men
in tho South been already deprived by
r
r f'J
thi; Democratic party of their constitutional
ami legal rights as citizens of tho
United Stales that tlicy regard the
advent of that party to national powcras
the signal of re-enslavement and are
affrighted bccause the}* think all legal
protection for them is gone.
Few persons in the North realize how
completely the chiefs of the Rebellion
wield the *>olitici?l power which lus
triumphed in the late election. It is a
potentous fact that the Democratic Senators
who came from the States of the
late Confederacy, all, and I mean all,
without a single exception, personally
participated in the rebellion against the
Northern Government. It isast'Il more
significant fact that in those States no
man who was loyal to tho Union, no
matter how strong a Democrat he may
be to-day, has the slightest chance of
political promotion. The one great avenue
to honor in that section is tho record
of zealous service in the war against the
Government.
It is cettaiuly an astounding fact that
the section in which friendship for the
Union in the day of its trial and agony
is still a political disqualification, should
be called now to rule over the Union.
All this takes place during the lifetime
of the generation that fought the war.
and elevates into the practical command
of tho American Government the identical
men who organized for its destruction
and plunged us into the bloodiest
contest of modern times.
I have spoken of the South as placed
by the late election in posession of the
Government, and I menu nil that my
words imply.
The South famishes nearly threefourths
of the electoral votes that defeated
the Republican party and they will
step to the command of the Democrats
as unchallenged and us unrestrained as
they held the same position thirty years

Purposely, I may say instinctively, I
have discussed the issues and consequences
of that contest without referonce

reference to the gentleman who
is elevated to the Presidency. Towards
him, personally, I have no cause for the

I express the wish that his official

Washixhton, November li).?All the
New York newspapers this morning
publish Pdaine's spcech at Augusta last
night. The Tribune and Sun make no
mention of it in their editorial columns.
The same is the fact with regard to the
National Jtcpublican of Washington,
The New York Herald says :
"\Ye believe that no patriotic citizen,
be he Republican. I>emocra', People's
Party man. or Prohibitionist, will read
the speech Blaine made at Augusta lasl
night, without thanking (rod most fervently
for the deliverance of the People
of the United States from the danger
and disgrace of having such a demagogue
and incendiary for their President.
"It is the first instance in which n
Presidential candidate, maddened by defeat,
has tried to inoculate his country
with sectional passions in revenge foi
its choice ef another man.
"Unless we iinder-estiniatc the patriotism
of the people. North and South,
they will greet it with such scornful anger
everywhere that it will be the last
instance, as well as the first, and no future
disappointed miscreant will dare
defy' the warning.
"In the civil war one great crime was
attempted, which honorable belligerents
on either side regard with unanimous
horror. We mean the attempt to inoculate
the country with yellow fever.
Hut it pales in wickedness beside
Blaine's nttempt to inoculate the country
with sectional passions, to tear open
the healed wounds of the Rebellion, to
permeate the North with a sense of humiliation
from the election of Governor
Cleveland to the Presidency, to infect
freedom with the fear of re-enslavement,
to inspire white workmen with
the dread of the freedmen's competition
in their fields of labor, and to impeach
the sincerity of the allegiance of nil
Southern white men. No rebuke is
too severe for this villainous speech,
and the shame of it is aggravated by the
fact that'it was as deliberate as it is dastardly.
Blaine's words arc not an unpremeditated
harangue of hot temper.
They are the studied utterrance of coldblooded
malignity. Since he cannot
rule he would ruin, lie would enrso
his country with jealousy, and discord,
and misery, because he himself is jealous
discordant and miserable."
"I'ut ve believe that there is small
danger of harm from such words as
his at this day. We have faith that the
evil he would wreak upou his country
will bo visited on his own head. If the
Republican party does not unload itself
of Blaine after this speech, it will
add damnation to defeat."

Many IntolFiifcnt and Deserving
Women.
When it first became known that the
Cotton Centennial Exposition would fur
nisli employment for women iii the
clerical departments, the managers of the
exposition and all their friends, relatives
and even chance acquaintances were immcdiatoly
heseiged by hundreds of Indies

The character of these gentle applicants
was, to say the least, interesting,
the unwritten histories of many of them
touching, the desolation and need ol
many, heart-breaking. Shy, shadow}wan-faced
women, whom want bad routed
from the sweet security of frugal
homes began to hunt the big, busy exposition

great door opened wide into anew world,
whero all hoped to find nourishing food
and some to learn the royal road to independence.
And so these ladies began to write lettors
to the exposition managers. Ulibit.si

reminding one of the poetry in oldfashion
Indies' albums, but relating with
pathetic bravery the need and anxiety
of the writer. With what dignity of

patched over in some of those letters of
application that fluttered likq a first
fall of show into the exposition office ?

Great Hope Tor the Country Under a
Democratic Administration?An Exodus

Good thing 1'or tho Colored l'eople.
C'oi.rMMA, November 15.?Ooverno#
Thompson, in repl}' to the question as to
what effect the olcction of Cleveland
and Hendricks would have upon tho business
interests of the country, said that
it would be difficult to overestimate tl.n
good results which will follow from thu
restoration of tho Democratic party to
power. This election is more than a mero
pnrty triumph. Won by a combination of
the Democrats with honest Republicans,
the election is a protest against the corrupt
practices which in their long lenao
oi power, uepuuucans nave permitted to
increase until tho very foundations of
the Government were endangered.
Tho demand for reform and honesty
in the administration of the Govorniuou^,
has como from tho people in unmistaka*
hlo language. Public officers will now bo
held to a strict accountability. This result,
alone, is worth all the effort which
the election has [coat. The corrupt uso
of power by public ollicers is demoralizing
to the people of the whole oouii*
try. This evil will now cease. Tho
relations between tho two races at tho
South will henceforth he those of entire
harmony. The only differences between
them heretofore have boon with regard
to politics. Those dlforences have been
kept alive and increased by tho machin*
alionsofthe Federal officeholders, whose
only hope for continuance iu office was
by fomenting discord between the races
and sectional difference between the two
politionl parties. Kven thoso of tho
Federal officials wliohavo not been porsouully
corrupt, have used their offices
for their own advancement and that of
thfir party, without regard to the wolfure
of their country. Iiitter political
partisans, their presence here is n standing
menace to our people. They aro
disturbers of the peace?the inveterate
foes of quiet and good tovernmont at .
the South. President Cleveland may

the Long Parliament in turning them out,
