If we know onurselves it is with a
feeling less of exultation than
thankfulness of heartfelt gratitude
to the Divine Dispenser of all good T
that we announce the result of the
Presidential election, and that as
far as known it was attended with
so little acorimonious feeling and
probably no bloodshed. Doubt
seemed to hold the balance almost
to the last. The party in power
gloating over the spoils of office ib
and longing to retain them, did i
doubtless use bribery and corrup- re
tion so far as money ooulA effect il
the issue, but their vigilant rivals
exercised so much and such pru- ,
dent care that other frauds and vi- D
olence could not be practiced. The
l result, after the most vindictive, we
e ~ay say filthy, canvass on the part A
- of the Republicans -ever waged
against a Democraiio candidate
r personally has resulted in his com
e plete vindication and triumphant it
n election. We say personally, be- n,
, cause against the public career of ti
f Grover Cleveland the breath of
- suspicion never attached, while so
S glaring are the crimes and misde- G
I- meanors of Jas. G. Blaine through
d a long public career he drove from
e his support a vast number of his A
r- own party. .All honor to them !
2 It is just as it should be. What
'r over may have been Mr. Blaine's a
e public virtues, if he had any, they I
;r were more than counterbalanced by
i- the great accumulation of guilt that
i- attended and was' practiced by him
it when occupying a high office, to C
- which the crime of perjury must be
r- added. His elevation to the ruler
)f ship of a mighty christian nation
9- would have been a stigma, a last
)f ing blot on its fair escutcheon.- t
;s This humiliation, this disgrace, has
e been warded off by a just and
1- righteous judgment of the people,
:e hence we say "Gloria in excelsis I"
in May Mr. Blaine's example be
le duly noted and become a warning
to rising generations. May the
great party whose honest principles
ý. he prostituted 'purge itself of all of
his stamp. Should it again appeal
n- to public favor let it offer in the
i- person of its standard bearer the
bname of one they themselves would
ed blush to own.
