there Important private business
was any very I
to be transacted Washington wan til last place
In the world to select From early mornlntr till
late at night there must necessarily be a throne
of visitors How could It be otherwise
Private business Is I blind The Presi
dent duet came on nn entirely different errand
I I a fools errand Oc n Garfield could not
have manifested the Inherent weakness of his
character more plainly than bv this visit to
Washington Ho is undoubtedly In great
trouble Ho does not see his way clearly out
but he thinks he does Ho came here to confer
and b conferred with He thinks he has made
up his mind but he hasnt He believes be has
I great mission to perform Ho Is of that class
who believe that the earth Is the Inheritance of
the saints and that they are the saints Beyond
this Oen GarfIeld has no cloarly defined views
on absolute conviction I must bo remembered I
that although he has been nearly twenty years
In public life Gen Garfield hal had very little
experience In national politics His knowledge
of practical politics does not extend beyond the
old Nineteenth Ohio Congressional District
There n peculiar people are t b found His
nomination has always been assured and his
election was only once In doub He his never
ben recognized 11 manager In the politics of
his own State His position In the muse of
Representatives cave him a national reputa
tion but he was never considered a leader of
his party Blaine was the leader of the Repub
lican minority In the Fortyfourth Congress
Hale Blames lieutenant divided the
Dnlnes leutenant respon
sibility of leadership In the Fortyfifth Con
cress but his party refused to follow Ho took
positions on the Army bill and the Marshals
bill which he was fIred by his party friends
In the House and Senate to abandon
II
Really raw and Inexperienced In politics and
with no special aptitude for managing men
Gen Garfield Is now called upon to pilot the
Republican ship through a boisterous narrow
sea with Scylla and Clinrrbdls on either hand
It Is no secret that there Is a break between
John Sherman nnd tho President nice Sher
man believes that he was betrayed In tho house
of his friends Ho talked openly about I bAro
Immediately after the Chicago Convention He
talked just openly and rather
as opnly mora em
phatically on the same subject In Now York
His best friends were alarmed at his Indiscreet
candor They did their utmost 10 shut his
mouth and finally succeeded but It was like
the locking his stable door after his
man loklnu toor Iler horse
had been stolen The damage was done There
have been no relations between Sherman and
Garfield slnoo the Chicago Convention Stren
uous efforts are now making to rvtnbUsh re
lations but thus far they have not ben suc
cessful Sherman has not culled upon the Presi
dent eoct
There are a great many very respectable peo
ple in the Republican party who are seriously
troubled at this state of things Curious as It
may seem to some the hopes and fears of all
reform Republicans that not very numerous
but vary respectable class known as civil service
reformers urn centered upon John Sherman
One wing of tho antiGrant Republicans who
ae not troubled much about reform also hope
that Sherman may bo made a rock of safety
against Orantlsm They are doing all they can
to heal the branch between Garfield and Sher
n un pm n
man Some of them are here now They hnve
the sympathy and cooperation of others In high
official places These men Insist that Garfield
ought to go to Sherman and ask him to remain
In the Treasury Department They have
squarely told Garfield that It Is his duty to do
this In doing this they of
assume course
that there Is no substantial around for nny ill
feeling on the part of either There Is some
truth in this To those not initiated Sherman
bos no jubt cause of complaint against Garfield
They argue that Gnrfleldfl nomination was a
more accident So I was
in
Those who know the Inside history of tbo
Chicago Convention am well aware that Gar
field owed his nomination to unforeseen and
fortuitous circumstances They knov also
that i was uover possible fur Sherman to luive
been nominated I was always possible for the
friends Sherman Blame and Edmunds to
have nominated SOl one whom they could I
agree upon Thu difficult In the way of tin
agreement won that Blames friends were
largely In the majority and nfter the Grant
forces the best organized aud boat handled
The Massachusetts and Vermont delegates
would undor no circumstances take Blalna
They openly said they would goto Grant when
sver the struggle came sQuarely between Grant
ind Blaine I was the knowledge of this fact
that made the Grant managers so confident of
luccess They were fully advised of all the
louferances between their opponents As late
as 1 oclock in the night before the nomination
was made there was no agreement among the
eaders of tbo antiGrant forces as to whom
eaters
Jlioy should rally upon More than halt the
Ohio delegation did not want Sherman Al
most half of It really wanted theme Tho
rlendsof Dlalno saw there was but one obstu
cle to keep Ohio from going to their man Tim
obsUcIo was Garfleld They reasoned with
GarfleM and clanded with him and with Foster
and DonnUon to come to lilalne Rateman
Shermans one steadfast frIend they could not
approach hayfield and Foster btendlly and
persistently Insisted upon Sherman This was
of course known to be a blind Bo well satlefloi
were lilalnes of the situation
Jalnel managers slunton tha
they had tolagraphed Blalno twelve hours be
fore that they saw but one way to prevent
Grants nomination the next day and that was
tostampoda the Convention to Garfield The
rosponst came from Blame In effect to act upon
their own judgment and act at the proper time
By the purest accident Garfield secured the
only available man to stampoo the convention
with llu was not the man the Blaine men
wanted With the exception of FoMor and per
haps one or two others In the Ohio delegation
the acttvo friends of Sherman had no great
fancy for Garfield I U I well known that Gar
fluid wont to Chicago with tt vagut hUt that ho
might be nominated At a curtain stage of the
struggle Fouler nod a few others saw tho op
portuultyto nominate him and In a small way
the Intrigue began Garfield a undoubted
aware of I and could have stopped It lie dh
no Ho made no show of doing It Sherman
knows this and hence
tils aol his grievance
It 1 curious t act bow until things often
determine great events In politics Conkllng
was tho contra llguro of this Chicago Conven
tion Ho wan tlm CaptainGeneral I of tho
Imperial nrmythn lion of the third term
hooters and howlers He was the object on
which all their enthusiasm wn oxposdod Ho
represented their cnusn nnd wherever nnd
whenever he made his nppenrnnco hn was
wildly cheered Every utterance of his was
applauded to tho echo Thu opposition to
Grant had no genuine lion It manufactured
ono out of Garfield h1i wee the only man In
tho convention not for Grant who had the
physique and the reputation to be set up In op
position to Conkllng As an offset to tho ap
plntisn which greeted Conkllng the anti
nnl I
Grnnt claqueurs and delegates cheered Garfield I
In this way n sentiment was unconsciously
manufactured for Garfield which made It pos
sible nt the critical moment to stampede the
convention nnd nominate him
IV
Tho Imperialists wore angry The Dtnlno I
faction tin leaders of which had actually mado
tho nomination worn not wthuslnstle The I
very men who planned nnd executed tho stam I
pede knew they had played n risky came and
that In winning they might bo cheated The
sincere friends of Sherman naturally believed
that he had been betrayed by his next friend
and concluded that they had all along been do
celvod by Garfield and Foster But Wash
burnus friends were the most disgusted when It
was known a few hours later that tho proposi
tion to put Arthur on the ticket was made with
infields sanction The Chicago atmosphere
was lIterally sulphurous that night with the
> profanity Wnshburnos friends I was add
lag Insult to Injury In Shermans caSA and his
devoted admirers were quick to see It and not
slow to express themselves freely and emphat
cally The lordv hauteur and undisguised
contempt with which Conkllng received the
overture > and incontinently rejectm It must
have boen very humiliating to Garfield Tho
bid however was accepted by Arthur and his
friends In spIte of Conkllngs sneers but it was
not till Xew York had bon passed In tho roll
cal for nominations and iust an my Lord Boo
coo with stately tread entered the bal of the
Convention that Arthur was named
The journey from Chicago on tho train
which bore eastward Conkllng and his coterlo
of friends nnd also some of tho most active
and Influential of Blnlnos and Shermans
workers was an enjoyable one to the disinter
sted lookeron There was absolutely no en I
huslasm manifested by the people along the
route Conkllnga crowd was reserved and al
most unapproachable To the favored few who
were admitted to the Inner circle his contempt
for the nominee and doubt of the rosult were
not concealed I Tlldon was nominated by the
Democrats all doubt would b dissipated His
election would bo Inevitable The Blame men
attempted to hide their chagrin by rejoicing at
tho discomfiture of tho Imperialists but It was
constrained joy A Sherman delegate from
Massachusetts wandered from car to car anx
Iously nsklnl everybody If they did not think i
the enthusiasm would work up by and by He
was painfully impressed by tbo utter absence I
of anything like zanl at the towns and cities
where the train stopped I
The canvass which followed was uphill work
for tho Republicans Tho Maine result for a
time dazed them Gnrfleldj condition fol
owing the Maine election Is described by an In
Imats friend 8 pitiable Ho was crushed
overwhelmed He saw Impending the solemn
judgment of his countrymen on the Credit
ioblller bribery and perjury I was nt tills
juncture that tho vunerable Simon Cameron
made his appearance nt Mentor He came
here nt Garflilds solicitation From that visit
dated the actlvecnergotle and efficient Inter
erence of tho Imperial forces In the work of the
campaign Tho Union League subscriptions
commenced The GrantConkllngLoganCam
cOlnDcncet GrantConklnlLolnnCam
eron combination began iu tour at Warren
Ohio and niter the opening performance called
In state nt Mentor The treaty of Mentor nego
tiated by Simon Cameron was duly ratified and
publicly attested
V
This treaty of Mentor Is the poisoned shirt to
Garfield In his distress ho has come t Washington
ngton vainly hoping that he can effect a rec
onciliation with Sherman and Mud material for
a composite Cabinet which will satisfy all fac I
tions nnd Incense none On his way ho stopped I
nt Harrisburg That was very significant
Simon Cameron wily old fox that ho isompha
sized tho occurrence by tbo publication three
lays Inter of an Interview In which with many
precautionary ifs he announced that Gar
felt could have 1 hecond term I was salt
rather boldly but still adroitly sprinkled That
tho salt lodged where it was intended It should
certain gentlemen who recently called upon
Garfield firmly believe Those gentlemen
made another discovery at this same via Itto
wit that Garfield ha unbounded confidence In
the people He may heretofore have had doubts
nbout the stability of our Institutions Many nn
intellectual man at some time in his life has
doubted the immortality ol tho soul Garfield
lean Intellectual man Ho has doubted Buthe
has no doubts now The people have vindicated
him ergo tho people can be trusted and our In
stitutions are In no danger Tho earth Is the
Inheritance of the saints nnd we nre the saints
No longer any doubts about the Immortality of
the soul or of Gods wisdom and goodness I
A still morn astounding discovery was made
by the aforesaid gentlemen namuly that tho
people and the political machine in Garflelds
estimation nro well very nearly convertible
terms Why not Garflelds logic admits of no
other conclusion Tho machine was for Gar
field and tho people vindicated Garfield ergo
the machine nnd the people are of ono mind
aud In fact the people constitute tlm machine
There will be no civil service reform during
Gnrflelds administration There will bo plati
tudes In his Inaugural and his
tudos Inluuural messages on
that subject Like Hayes and other hypocriti
cal reformers he will amuse himself by writing
what he thinks beet and acting be finds
bet ncUnl as fndl con
venient afterward

Garfield will not take I Secretary of the Treas
ury Irom Now York Since the foundation of
our Government Saw York has had but one
Secretary of tho Treasury Alexander Hamilton
ton In Hamiltons day New York was not tho
commercial and financial metropolis Philadel
phia was then the great city 1 ban not been
accidental this not taking the Comptrollers of
tho Flso Irom New York The Secretary of tho
Treasury will come from the Vitist If a man can
be found there howl not be lost In Sherman
hnt Garfield would doubtless like to make
Blaine Secretary c State but Blaine Is not a
fool When Pierce Administration was get
ting Into deep water some of Mr Marcys
friends came from New York and urged him to
resign and save his reputation What said
Mnrcy am I not to have credit for all the bad
things I privontod 1 No they are Invisible
replied his frlonds I you prevent nine mis
takes and fall on the tenth the world knows
nothing ot the nine and sings about the one you
didnt stop Blame Is too shrewd a fellow to
get Into any such scrape
The Cameron bellnve they have I mortgage
on Garfield and Intend to foreclose It for I
Cabinet position I Garfield wan shrewd and
bold ho would anticipate the foreclosure
b10 untelvstu thl lro and pay
the debt by making Wayne MacVencli Simon
Camerons soninlaw AttorneyGeneral Mac
Vouch Is I good lawyer a bright fellow and the
appointment would be a sop to the reformers
with whom ho hW masqueraded How could
the Cnmorons kick against this recognition
tle alalnlt rooonltun of
tba family t
lisw York baa the Yic PrMlJ nL and could
bo put off with n less place than tho State De
partment but sho will doubtless retain Unit
rospocUbln aud nonpolitical position I Is i
nut unlikely that Hamilton Fish will ho Secre
tary of State It Is understood In diplomatic
circles here that tho foreign policy of tie Gov I
ernment to be stiffened up somewhat There
will bo a more decided policy In regard to Cuba
all our relations to Spain Yet Mr Evarts
undoubtedly flatters himself that ho will re
main Secretary of Htato Ho In the most com
plaisant gentleman In Washington Ho be
lieves that Garfield owes his election entirely to
him and has no anxiety about his gratitude
Ha tells nil his friends how It happened Tho
Republican gains In New York and Brooklyn
elected Garfield the places where I made my
two dpoachos
Tho Grant crowd wilt not bo satisfied with I
composite Cabinet unless lucy got theTreasury
Interior nnd Post Ofllcu Departments They
demand these and will bo satisfied with noth

undor the ban of secrecy United States Assist
ant District Attorney Angel siild that he was
under promise to tho secret service men not t
speak about the release ot Brockwny
It wai remarked that this silence of the offi
cials In Brooklyn taken in connection with the
despatches printed from Washington civlnx
he denial of Chief Brooks of the Secret Service
hat Brockway was discharged Indicated that
the fact had been kept a secret from him also
On his way to tho United States Court build

In Fulton street Brooklyn Brocfcwny was well
dressed and was smoking Us moved along at
an easy gait and seemed to b fully enjoying
the liberty which tho Chief of the Secret Service
denied that he possesses and which has led to
so much mystery on the part of others in Gov

Much deception has been practised to kop
tho actual facts from tho public The account
of the release In THE SUN of Sunday however
was correct except In tho Impression that
Brockwny vas still subject to sentence on his
plea of guilty to counterfeiting the Govern

drawn which Brokwnr nlonn signed and It Is
conceded that for all purposes of hal the bond

Not to n aort to Cotrclon
LONDON Nov 2t1A despatch to the Times
from Dublin stirs that the resolution ol tbo
Cabinet not to resort to coercion ban caused
very deep disappointment and apprehension
among all daises In the disturbed districts
They look with alarm at the prospect ot more
outrage and wider spread intimidation and
disaffection There Is good reason to believe
that the Executive will try to show by greater
activity and energy that they possess sufficient
power In the ordinary law The disturbed dis
tricts are flooded with constabulary and mili
tary and nil the resources at the command of
the authorities ore available when required
For the protection of life end property
but tile secret and complete organization
of the Leaguers enables them to anticipate
the movements of the constnbutnry and In
some Instances defeat them There can be
little doubt that the organization ot the
Languors Is rendered most perfect and for
midable by connection with her Fenian sys
tem It Is this that makes Intimidation so Irrr
elstlbln In some districts It Is practised with
great subtlety and skill BU that the authorities
are unable tn counteract It They can dnnl only
with open nets of violence which am avoided
much us possible while the morn effectual sys

About 2000 men and women assembled

of that city The mother of Mr Parnell the
Irish agitator and Mlts Ellen A Ford were
among the occupants ot the crowded stage
They were greeted with applause The motto
Justice to Ireland displayed In the pros
cenium arch Mr James E Connelley pre
sided and introduced Mr James Bedpath who
arrived from Ireland yesterday noon Three
cheers were given for Mr Redpath He at once
began to speak nf the land system In Ireland
In certain counties he said tenants who has
reclaimed bog laud were driven out by the fre
quent raising of their rent Some of
these tenants emigrated to America but
men with long families could not do this
A long family he explained has from nine
to fourteen children A woman who had only
four children apologized to Mr Redpnth bv say
ing she luau not been housekeeping long Nine
tenths of the landlords are absentees Ono
n100tt the speaker said has driven thousands
nf tenants to the poorhonsesnnd to thclrgrnves
If that man is shot I shall not wear mourning
Concerning this subject of sbnotlngI hne been
unable to find that any decent landlord bee ben
shot Wherever there Is a decent landlord the
people would die for him
As to tin eviction ot tenants Mr Redpnth said
them has not been so much ot it this Tear
This he said Is txvause there was n Land
League In Ireland Applause1 Ireland never
hail n more honest lender than Charles Stewnrt
PnrnHi Great npplausi Pnrnell bus been
askml what he wants Be wants nothing ex
opt that the landlords shall get nut ut Ireland
Lnuabterl All this year there have boon only
five eases of accidental death that any one can
attribute to the tenant One of the men killed
wits Lord Loltrim It he had not bean shot It
would have been an eternal disgrace Ho
ruined thirty pure girls and the brother
of one of them went to Irelnnd from Chi
cago and shot him down like tha dog that ho
was Applause I profoundly honor him
for It continued the speaker and It I meet
him In Chicago 1 will congratulate him on
being n good shot I hope he will disclose his
name that we may give him a testimonial Mr
Froude has condemned that shooting and I
charge him with defending debauchery It la
