U If Gen. Harrison has now paid $10,000 for
I ! the Copo Mny Point cottnee. as tlio subacr-
vlent New York Iiesa asserts, upon what it
j i alleges as "proper warrant," one of thco
f thrco things Is tn:e:
i 1. The payment i3 nominal only, dcrigned
i ! . to mnko a convenient record on the books of
tho Eeuistor of Deals of Cnpi May county
j ' nndtoreliovo tho President of tho odium
. i which belongs to tho Kift i-eoker nnd gift
! ? taker In high offlce.
' j i 2. The payment is Renuine, and $10,000
' J havereally pispcd from thnPieeldcnt'b bank
J account to tho pockets of tlio mlginil eub-
I eorlbers to tho cottage fund, Including Mr.
i CtHLDS, Mr. Wan"ukkh, and Jioomer
' h Hamilton; but tho piyn cnt is nn nftor-
; , , thought, suggested eithor by a guilty con-
I j Ecionce or a deslro to ecapo tho con-,0-
j ,' quoncos of a tremendous scindil.
k i 8. Tho payment was contemplated by tho
! President from tho first; anit ho merely oc-
1 cuplcd the cottao ns a frco tenant long
enough to satisfy himself that It w as a good
purchase. Henoer had any intention of
; noqulrlng It as a gift.
'' One or another of theso threo suppositions
J ' must be accepted. If the first Is accepted,
! then the President Is churgod directly with
a trick of deception as cowardly nnd eon-
l Jl ' temptible as anything thut can bo Imagined.
Mr J Under tho second supposition, den. HAn-
'I '' HIBON has tardily but directly confessed tho
II ' gross Impropriety of his ilrtt action in tlio
matter; and tho iYtas and tho other or-
' i eons 'which havo been defending him slnco
1 early In Juno have wasted their zeal.
" But tho JTVcflfl, pretending to speak for
the President, attempts to givo tho Impres
sion that tho third theory is tho right ono;
u-; namoly, that liFXJt.Mrx IlAnr.iso.v never
i ' droamod of taking tho cottago as a gift;
j ' that his payment of thoS10,000 wnsdcfi rred
I moroly until tho family had ascertained thnt
I I I tho edifice suited their purposes, nnd that
; tho money was paid over lon' ago. Gen.

For tho Halo of tho Majority.
Our ri-tcemcd contemporary and neighbor,
tho IWfrtinr, eirnrstly asks tho New York
licpubllcaiis tlio question:
"IsWiuhmM ErinTitobe unoceeded In the United
Ftntes Hennte by a Republican or a Ueniocrall"
If our Itepubllcan friend i woro as con
cerned about known political fraud In tho
Noi th as they pretend to bo about supposed
political fraud In tho riouth, there could bo
but ono answer to tho ITliiitmc'a question.
Tlio successor of Mr. Lvabts would bo a
Democrat. New York Is a Democratic State,
but In Now York tho btalo ofllccia nro elect
ed by a majority or a plurality of tho Legis
lature as chosen by tho minority. Tho
cities, which nro Democratic terrlloiy,
hao been growing rapidly and stead
ily. Tho rural Itepubllcan districts
hae either been declining In population or
havo mado inconsiderable gains. A reap
portionment of tho Senate districts and As
bembly district would greatly add to tho
Democratic, representation in tho Legisla
ture. It would in nil probability Insure tho
election of a Democratic Legislature. There
fore tho Republicans havo for years refuocd
and will contlnuo to refuse to provido for
puch an enumeration of tho inhabitants of
tho State as Is ordered by tho Constitution,
nnd for a reapportionment based upon suoh
Iho Democrats of Now York will notcn
duro this gross Injustice much longer, If
they can holp it, and this Is a very good
year for electing a Democratic Legislature.
1 ho Republican party of Now York is wenk
and divided. Its feet are evil, and will bo as
long as liKXJiMix IIaiuusos Is President.
It litis played a wi etched doublo gamo in re
gard to exeipe legislation. Its Representa
tives In Congress have already succeeded in
alar mlng tho business interests of New York
by exit rvagaut legislation nud by attempt
ing tonioCiiln with business in the South.
Altogether thoro is a try bilious outlook
for tho Republicans.
On the other hand, the New York Demo
crats are In good condltl n, nnd thoy havo
In Daviij RrsNErr Hill the most skilful
nnd siicieiful of living Democratic le tilers.
The New York Demoern y will mnko a reso
lute and manly eff irt to elect n Domoeratio
t-'untor In Congress next winter, and ro
rhtabllsh tho rule of tho majority.
Tlio Stato Committee.
Tho annual and duly expected midsummer
rumor in tho Held of municipal politics lias
mndo Its appearame, and it Is to tho oflet
that tho Democratic huti Committco will,
at its meeting in Augiibt, ccpcl from mem
b"rhip upon it tho representatives of ono
faction of tho local Democratic party. No
particular leison is given for such an act,
but a variety of reasons exist why tho Stato
Commit'eo will pursuo no bueh course, nnd
thov are worth reciting.
In tho first place, tho Democratlo St.ato
Committco lin nothing to do with any local
differ ences w lileh may exist among tho Dem
ocrats of Now Yoi k city. Such powers as It
possesses am delogatad by tho .State Con
vention, w hlch creates it. And as Stato Con
ventions nro not called to male, and are not
empowered to make, rriumcii al nominations,
or to lntTfero with them in any way after
having been made, tho Stato Committee,
tho agent and Instrument of tho Stato
Convention, has no such power either. All
that it lias to do with Is tho Stato ticket
and tho SUto Legislature.
In tho soeond place, oven apart from tho
quest ions of jurisdiction, or party advantage,
the Stato Committee, bus no power to expel
any one, thueby di-franchlblng a distikt.
StatoCommittecnumnrechoseuby tho votes
of tho delegdleri In a Democratic Convention
fiom each of tho Congrtos districts In tho
State. They nro irremovable, J'nch com
ru'tteemnn represents ono diitrict, his own.
As that district could not choose a member
for another dlstiict, neither can its member
Tote to displace a member already chosen.
No ono understanding the funct'ons or
power of a State Committeeman or tho
method of his election would claim thnt it
bad. Rut, flrally, ar.d in tho third
place, n still stronger rcai-on thin
any of those named ovists why tho
midsummer political rumor of 1390 Is an nb
suidlty. Thli Ira year of Democratic union
not of factional strife, 'iho keynoto
Bounded by Governor Hrr.r, in Indlannpolis
ot a united front against tho common en
emy !u tho accepted watchword of Demo
crats everywhere. Iho old battle for tho
eotisiltutli nul rights and liberties of tho peo
ple, menaced ancv by the piovlsionsof tho
centiiililiig 1'. reo bill, finds all Democrats
iiirieed nnd haimon'ous. 'I ho Issuo raised in
Washington by the Republicans In favor of
the measure fit r I kev nt thovery eswnco of
American Democracy, and makes Inevltablo
a content, upon this lino at tho approaching
Congres-slonal oloitlon, which will tuin
latgely upon tho result of tho appetl of the
Democrats to tho voters of tho country.
Tho X.itlouul Citine.
Our esteemed contemporary, tho CbniCTer

a liioe til otitic tlon. It asl.s:

Another side of It which U not contemplated by tho

In ew Tork enough to nominate a tew hundred ( on I

wou d be forthemaiwbo wasuomlUiitad tocetoutof 1L J
Kmployees might ihnw their regard for their era- 1
ployor by nominating him for run cress or for the floor- n
walker, or tlielr favorite ra oonkeeper or clkAr dealer, 3
by getting up a certitUate ti.run hlin for the Board of Jj
Aldermen. There Is noihfnir In the law to prevent J
this, it In rather encouraged. Unless the man so no a J
lnited declines the n nttiinttnn In due legal form tho I
city will hae to print Iih ballots ana hand one toi3Q, H
cjoo or 3(,mf votere. There are some men to whom a HI
joke of this the would ettm excruciatingly tunny, la fl
cose ho should decline the law ttys 'The officer to 1
whom such m tlflcntlon Is pi en shall forthwith inform, I
b mill nr otherwise one or mor persons whose namei H
are attached to the original certificate of nominatiea 9
that euch nomination has 1 eon declined. ' A
A man who is out of town an 1 does not hear of hit M
nomination cannot get out of It, unless he should aot W
legally ten days beforo election. In or ler to deollno, n
he must notify the otllcer with whom tho original cer ji
tlflcaie of hu nomination was filed at least twelve dayi n
tefore the election If he was nominated by a convea fl
tion, or ten dajs If he wns nominated by so-called "in- fl
dependent citizens " Tl is dec lnatton most bo signed fl
and duly acknowledge!, otl"erwl?je the bnltotg would fl
hae to be printed. Thus a man maybe forced to run fl
if advantage is taken of his absence from tbo city or h
his sickness. J
Hnce tho remnants of tbe old Labor party h aro found J
out how cheap it Is to run a ticket nnder the new law, j
they have made Dp their mlndd that they will go Into) '
politics again. The dittlculty with their going Into poll- j
tics Is thnt too many of them want to be nominated.
This difficulty may be solved by nominating them ail, H
each man for the otllce that he wishes. Thero must bo n
at least 3X) men who do not want un office for every fl
man who is actively after 11 This would enable all tbo fl
many candidates to ha e their tickets printed freo. fl
The Central Labor Union has already deotded to ft H
Into politics and nominate a tloket. They havo ap- m
I olnted a Conference Committee to lo ik after It. Thl H
Conference Committee and the boolaliats aro trying to m
agree, but the Socialists have withdrawn from tho Ceo flj
tral Labor Union and do not wnnt to have any moro to ffl
do with It. That means a hot. tails t county ticket. tl
The Central Labor Union did not go Into tho Clerical fl
Citizens movement, but itshecretary, James P. Archl- M
bald is Vice-President of the Clerical Citizens. Mr. raj
