THE SILVER STATE.
Wednesday........... October W, I8M,
A CHANGE OF TACTICS.
Governor Foster, of Ohio, admits, in
an interview with the Philadelphia
Times, that two weeks before the elec
tion in Indiana and Ohio the Repub
licans were beaten. The people had
become disgusted with the bloody shirt,
and it failed to have any influence on
voters. They knew that the “Solid
South,” which, by the way, never was
solid, was a mere bugaboo set up to
frighten timid voters, and that the in
terests of the country would be as
safely protected by Hancock as any
other person that could be elected to
the Presidency. While hopelessly
striving to influence the passions of the
' ^people by appealing to their prejudices,
Pastern politicians advised them to try
the tariff question and business scare.
They acted upon the suggestion, and
though these questions were a mere
pretense and an electioneering fraud,
they were for the time successful.
Since then, the clap-trap about pay
•rrg the rebel debt and riding rough
shod over the Constitutional Amend
ments, ha9 been dropped, except by
the small-fry stumpers, or precinct
statesmen, as they are sometimes
termed, and the tariff question has eii
to red largely into the canvass. Now,
’it is shown conclusively by Garfield’s
votes in Congress, that he is practically
in favor of free trade, and in a debate
with Judge Kelley, of Pennsylvania, on
'thb tariff, in the House of Repre
sentatives, said that “ against the ab
' • stract doctrine of free trade very little
can be said.” The Congressional Record
’ shows that he voted for free trade in
salt; to reduce the duty on pig iron, on
rcilroad iron and on bar iron, on win
dow glass and on all manufactures of
wool and cotton. It is also shown that
he is a honorary member of the Cobden
%r
"Pro© Trade Club, though his vote is
tvvico recorded in Congress in favor of
' a heavy duty on tea, coffee and paper
and printing material.
How tliia record is going to affect
him in the iron producing regions of
Pennsylvania and the wool growing dis
tricts of the whola country remains to
ba seen, but it does not seem possible,
that partianism can so blind tlie people
that they cannot see that this tariff
♦fuostiou, so far as it pertains to parties
in the present campaign, is as shallow
as the pretense, that the South is to
‘ govern the country iu the event of
Hancock’s election. Congress appointed
a Committee to report on modifications
of tlie existing tariff schedule, which
all parties admit- ought- to be revised,
and that Committee i3 to report to Con
gress at its next sessiom It is not an
issue of the campaign, as Republicans
and Democrats,, without distinction of
party, concede that modifications in the
tariff are necessary, and that the tariff
on very many articles is prohibitory,
' and tho Government desires no revenue
*. whatever from then*.
^ Joseph L, Wright of Philadelphia,
oao of the Pennsylvania Greenback
leaders, and a delegate to the conven
tion which nominated Weaver, has fol
! ' lowed the example of Hughes, another
l. Greenback leader, and declared for
Hancock, Ha says Hancock will get
tho bulk of the Pennsylvania Green
back votes, and fceu tliousand of the
Greenback votes, of Indiana. He de
nounces Weaver for selling out to the
Republicans.
At the last meeting of the Boston
Methodist pastors it was conceded that,
thair denomination was barely holding
its own in that city. After a discus
sion of' various measures proposed it
was resolved to try prayer. The
preachers soiuamly covenanted with
one another that for three months they
would devote halt an hour or more each
dry. beginning at noon, to prayer for
the Methodist churches «£ Boston and
vicinity.
It is easy to- stump Rhode Island.
A. grand stand is erected in the middle
uf tho State, and tha thing is done with
* single speech. Parties of the op
position go into Connecticut until the
speaking is over.
“-- .
I’. T. Barnma, the Prince of Show
man. and of Humbugs, is a candidate
lor tno United States Senate from Con
necticut. lLa says he will spend *10,
*4? to £efc.tte place.
EXPLODING THE SOLIDS.
The absurdity of the cry of the Solid
North agaiaat the Solid South is being
made so apparent by the publication of
the returns of the Presidential election
of 1876, that the Republicans who
started it for tho purpose of making
the people believe that there are no
Democrats North of Mason & Dixon’s
line, have abandoned it. The figures iw
compiled from the returns are as follows:

The Returning Board Count is given
in Florida, Louisiana and South Caro
lina, and Colorado, which did not vote
foe President, the electors having been
chosen by the Legislature, is omitted.
The ligures show that the parties are
very nearly equally divided in the
North, and that there was a million
more Democrats in the Northern States
than in the South. The South has never
yet been solid at a Presidential elec
tion, if the Returning Boards counted
the votes correctly four years ago, and
the fact that the Republicans have sent
500 repeaters to Florida, indicates that
they do not intend it shall be next
Tuesday, notwithstanding- their cry of
a Solid South.
TELEGRAPHIC ITEMS.
The New York Times says: The to
tal registration of New York City this
year is 216,929, against 167,837 lrust
year. An analysis of the table shows
that the rate of increase has been much
greatw in. Rejmbli*an than in Demo
cratic districts. In the Seventh, Ninth,
Eleventh and Thirteenth Assembly
Districts, all of which are Republican,
the rate of increase over the registra
tion of 1879 is 30, 33, 23, and 43 per
centi If the total vote bears the same
proportion to the registration as in
1876, there will be 202,600 votes polled
next Tuesday. Adding to the vote cast
f<jr President by each party in P$76, its
due jjropor.tion of increase, as indicated
by the above percentages, we have a
Democratic total in round numbers of
130,600, and a Republican total of
72,(XX), giving a Democratic majority of
58,000. This-is v.hat the table shows,
if it shows anything, but tho real in
crease in Republican strength in this
city does not appear on the registry
lists.
A Woodland (Va .) special says :
Prank Allison last night found his wife
and business partner occupying the lat
ter’s room, when hg shot and instantly
killed the man, and shot his wife
through the breast and abdomen, in
dieting probably fatal wonnds. The
parties belong to . the best families of
Virginia.
'1 he body of Michael Hendricks, said
to be a nephew of (Joveni.gr Hendricks,
of Indiana, was found murdered tii’jee
miles from Leadville. The murder ia
supposed to have been committed by
two Met ulloin brothers, young Hen
dricks having been implicated ju the
murder of their brother and acquitted.
A most fiendish murder was perpe
trated iu Los Angeles. Tho victim was
a boy nine years old, who had been to
the store on an errand, and on his re
turn was met. by a man who told him
that he would find a package of candy
on a certain window ledge that had been
placed there for him. The boy got the
package and ate some of the candy, the
mother taking the rest from him until
he had eaten breakfast. The child had
scarcely taken three mouthfuls of coffee
before he complained of a burning sen
sation in his stomach, and a few min
utes after was taken with spasms. A
physician was sent for, who pronounced
the symptoms the same as tilose pro
duced by strychnine. The usual reme
dies were applied, but the boy lingered
for an ftounand died ih great agony.
Since the fusion of the Workingmen
and Democrats on the local tickets and
General Rosccrans, the jiolitical contest
has become more active in Sau Fran
cisco. The Republicans concede that
they have a harder job on hand than
before the fusion, but they profess to
he confident that San Francisco will go
their way by a good majority. The
Republicans say their canvass of tire
State gives Garfield from 3,00ft to 5,0C©
plurality. The Democrats claim the
State by 2,500 at least, and since the
Chinese question, and' Garfield's stand
upon it, have been brought prominently
forward in the campaign, it is plain
that the tide has set toward Duncoek.
It is learned from a most reliable
source that a Chinese invasion is
threatened from Cuba to Louisiana.
The Chinese In Cuba get $1 per day in
paper money, which is wortli only
forty cents on the dollar. With this
they have to buy their provisions, rice,
fish, etg., at exorbitant prines, and the
result of their labors is expended, with
nothing remaining. They are conse
quently dissatisfied. A Chinese agent,
Hing Loong, in New Orleans, is engaged
in bringing his countrymen to this
country, where Louisiana plauters will
use them in cultivating cauu
A reward of '>,000 is offered for tlie
arrest of the writer of the alleged Cac
field letter to Morey, but he can not lie
found. This leads to a suspicion that
the letter is not a forgery.
President Hayes is going home by
the Southern route, and is expected at
Santa Fe, New Mexico, to-day.
