were radiant with color und bloom.

A few days ugo thora appeared in our
oslceuiod blaine contemporary, Tho Now

less the Hon .lohn Sherman shall secure
a united delegation to tho Republican na
tional convention from Ohio ho will with
draw from tho eau vasa for tho presiden
tiui nomination of bis party. Of
course, this was absurd on Its face
Nobody ?rho knows Mr. Sherman cred
ited it. Nobody octpiuluted with tho situa
lion in Ohio believed that ho could got a
united delegation from that state No
body who bas watched tho persistent elec
tioneering which he has done for years In
bis efforts to secure tho presidential nomi
nation could bave boon convinced that
anything short of doath could cause him
to withdraw as a candidato us long un lu?

was prepared for tho entirely superfluous
and uncharacteristically heated deuial
which Mr. Sherman hastened to hurl ut
Tho Tribune, In which lc actually grew
so torrid us to brand tho dispatch us "an
unmitigated He III substance and detail."
Now. we submit that when tho Hon
John Sherman, of all men. begins to
erupt in this incandescent stylo, bcforetliu
