The com.koe ntmnKNTS were nil

is President White, of Cornell, vigorously
denying the statement Hint lie liad said lie
would vote for Cleveinud. Oilier college
men are crawling out of the Curtis nieimg

probably be found that most ol the college

Democratic party on the liquor question
the New York World ns: "0"' up
standing is Hint the Democratic party is In
the habit of taking a drink whenever It
feel like it. Therefore it is not In favor
of Prohibition. There Is a clause In the
National Platform this year which reads:
'Wo oppose sumptuary laws, which vex
the citizen aud Interfere with individual
liberty.' We understand this to be goal
Democratic doctrine. We suscribe to it."
Our esteemed friends the Prohibitionists
Bhould find something til lnterebt in this
declaration of the World.
The Vote In this Stute.
Thero has been considerable arguing
concerning the vote by which Cleveland
carried New York as compared with
votes before and since. The comparison
will be found in these llgures:

Garfield's plurality...., 21,033
Folger, Pen 343,40-1

Cleveland's plurality. . . . 103,854
Carr, Rep 440,108

It will lie seen that Cleveland only re-
eelveded 807 votes more forGovcrnor than
Hancock received for President, when Gar

that a full vote will be polled this year.

8o far ns heard from every voting

to the nomination of H. C. Hedges for
Congress. Tliore was practically no
opposition or not enough to make a
contest. This secures to Air. Hodtfe
a considerable majority of the delegates,

Tu canvas for delegates to the county
convention which closed Monday night
was tho most hotly contested ever
known In Wellington. Both factions
committed themselves earnestly to the
work, and for several days nothing
else was done but labor 'for the success
of their respective candidates. To the
observer the result seeineduncertain,but
the friends of Mr. Webber had made their
canvas so thoroughly that their oonfi
dence wu well grounded and this vic
tory was not a surprise, though tho
overw helming majority was as unlocked
for as would have been a defeat.
A presidential election could hardly
have secured more general attendance
at the caucus. From town and country
all were present. The work of tho can
vas being over, quiet good-nature pre
vailed In marked contract to the anxiety
and heat of the previous days. The
only tight was made on a candidate for
prosecuting attorney, and the count
bowed 217 vote's for Webber and ICS
for If yo. In Elyrla the vote stood 818
for Webber and S20 for Xye. Loral o
gave a majority of 10 for Nye (Oberlln,
a majority for Webber of two to one,
Eaton In a vote of 01, give Webber 85 ;
Carlisle in a vote of 75, gave Webber 65;
Sheffield gave a majority of one for Nye;
, Ridgevllle, six majority for Nye ; Am
herst, ten majority for Nye; Qrsfloii
and Lagrange elected Webber delegates ;
Penfleld for Webber by acclamation ;
Brighton and Huntington unanimous
tor Webber. Other towns heard from
five 18 majority of the delegates to Web
ber and the reports show that he bod a
large majority of the popular vote. ;
Considering that the opposition to Mr.
Xye was against a well established cus
tom to give county officers a second
term and that his canvas baa had the
advantage of the party organization
conducted by the most determined and
skillful leader In the county, the result
may be regarded as a splendid victory
for r. Webber. And In view of the

Ui:KEAU),N?Y.,July 25,-1 find a prl
vale loiter of mine made public In your
columns relating to Mr. Grovcr Cleveland.
How it came to be published I do not
know, neither do I particular' care. The
letter was copied from the San Fransisco
Clironlclo. Editor Tribune. The sole ob-
jeot in writing it was to put tho Advance
on its guard and draw lis attention to Mr.
Cleveland's immoralities. I had
carefully investigated tho case and found
the evidences of its guilt overwhelming.
Ho wasboing urged upon the confidence
of good people on the plea of exceptional
purity, und religious papers were being
misled aud were misleading others. I
wished tlioin to consider the case and dis
cuss tho relation of uncliastity to civil
promotions. Tho people need Inctruetion
on this point. Politicians nre Inclined to
treat it lightly, ami our youth are being
swept awny from the path of virtue by
their example. It seems to mo that re
liglous journals have n special duty to do
In the matter.
Tho publication ol my letter Is bring
ing me a Hood ol inquiries. It consumes
my strength to answer them, and I want
relief. The Telegraph In lliis city has
published the case quite fully, and I be
lieve truthfully and without exaggeration.
The editor of that paper is a Christian gen
tleman, who would not knowinuly publish
an untruth. He took great pains to ascer
tain the facts before disclosing anything.
That pajKT cun bo had singly or by the
quantity. If pcoplo will send for it in
stead of writing to mo I shall be greatly
The case is now in the political arena,
yet It is primarily a moral one. Every
good man and pure woman is Interested
to have a bachelor of bad habits kept out
of our national mansion. Mormonisin is
odious, but free-lovo Is tar more odious.
Onr President should be crsonally pure
as well as politically sound.

Editor of the C'lilrago TrUinmi:
IJitfalo, N. Y July 21. It seems to
me that a leading question of this cam
paign ought to be: "Do the Americnn
people want a common libertine for their
President t"
If not, it is easy for you to show that
they ought not to choose 31 r. Cleveland of
this city. Every word concerning his
character In or from the Buffalo Telegraph
of this date 1 have reason to know is true.
Unfortunately for many clean men will
vote the Democratic ticket this year, in
tho Interest ol "purity and relorm," the
publication roferrcd to Is not a campaign
lle.but the saddest and most solemn truth.
The man who prepared it for the press is
one of our best known aud most widely-
honored clergyman, and lie did it after
jK'rsonal Investigation, and , influenced
only by a sense of the sternest moral obli
gation. .- . 8. B. MlTClIEI.I,

It was rumored to-day that rails bad been
brought by Governor Cleveland against
the Evening Telegraph for criminal libel,
Investigation shows the report to lie un
true. The Telegraph this afternoon, under
the beading, "The talk of a liliel suit,"
says: "Numerous inquiries come to the
editor of the Telegraph about the piobabil-
ity of his arrest for libel on account of the
Cleveland exposure. In reply we havo to
say: The editor of the Telegraph hat
positive Information that he Is to be ar
rested for libel; he has positive informa
tion that he will not be arrested, lie
knows nothing about It, and gives himself
no concern about the matter. lie feels
prepared to meet the Issue in any shape it
may take."
Editor Buffalo Dally Times:
Buffalo, N. Y., July 28. I was greatly
pleased with your brave and manly editor
lal in yesterday'! Times when yon, as a poI.
itical opponent oi Governor Cleveland,
gave him Justice and defended him when
the Cleveland organs said nothing and left
the publio to infer that there ir.leht be
mill In the giwt cLaigcs yi.lni( -''T ,Ckccn
the Governor. Your altitude has given
the friends of Cleveland much satisfaction,
and in this I heartily share, for I have
known Cleveland since he was a young,
struggling attorney. I have never, in all
these years, had any reason to change my
opinion of him, which is that he is a brave,
large-hearted man In tho fullest , sense ol
the word. That such a man should not
be defended by his own organs is a burn
ing sliamo. Of course these papers affect
not to notice the attack, but when such
Journals as the Cincinnati Enquirer, De-
troif Journal, and other leading neWspa
pers print the story und defend the
Governor,' it does seem us the exhibition
of ' wisdom on (lie part of the Buffalo
Cleveland papers is the result of bigoted
narrow-mindedness.' ' . ,
I desire to say, further, if you will per
mit mo, that 'if the truo facts of this un
fortunate all'sir became known it would
bo found that Cleveland has acted more
manly than,, hundreds of men would
have done uiuk'r the nunc circiuustutias.
The originul cuuse of the troublo is
something Hint happens to thousands of
people, but the subsequent events appear
to be tlio matter of most criticism. As
an, older friend of Cleveland I know Unit
ho treated the woman in the cuse w ith
great kindness, and she hounded him for
money. He had to borrow nil, or nearly
all, ol the ?500 with which he tried to
buy peace Bfter the woman's liubits and
annoying calls on hint had made life
almost unbearable. Aftor that she took
to drink, and frequently threatened
Cleveland's life. It is true that the was
temporarily sent to an asylum, but it
was when sho was on the vorgo of the
tremens, aud was us likely to do herself
injury us sluilhreatened to hurt others.
Docs nny onupsupposo that it s;ine uinn
nnd a luwycr nuild send a woman whom
he might waul to have put out of the
wav to a u asylum without 'a commit
ment or warrant of law, knowing lull
well that the would be quickly liberated S
I never did think so. ,
Keep on, Mr. Editor, In your manly
course, and you will Jusily merit and win
tho respect and esteem of evcrylxxly!
I hope tho Cleveland organs here w ill
mine to tlicir senses and defend the
Governor, as papers nil over the I'uiled
States are doing. The public are
watching to see them defend Cleveland.

Ciiicaoo, July 2Q.-Editor of the Trl-
bune: Why tho don't the Repub
lican editors let Cleveland's record alone
until it Is too Into to withdraw him?
Then notify their readers to lay In a

Tall E. Hand,
8pccll to the Commercial Gazette
Washington, July 21. The contrast
between the two Vice Presidential can
didates In the m liter of loyalty is one
that soldiers will understand. Mr.
Hendrlck's sympathies nnd affiliations,
and much of his public work, were with
the copperheads. lie early left his
church and went to another becau.e his
minister preached a loyal sermon. In
one of his earliest seeches after the
war opened ho said : "If the war being
prosecuted khiill have the effect of
abolishing our market In the South, by
destroying the peculiar system of labor
In that section, then I would advise
the Nor.hwest to look out for ltelf."

tlou laws by which peaceable citizens are
dragged from their homes and all the en
dearments of domettlc life to butcher and
be butchered, to cotno out and hear this
advocate of peace and reunion." At
such a mooting as lato as 18C3 lie said :
IX Congress would take a bundle of
switches and twitch them all out ol the
White House It would be well for the
people; but until this Is done It will not
be well, You may hear the prayer in our
churches; your sons may gi out to the
battle field, but our country Is not lo be
restored as It was until Abolitionism is
burled never to be resurrected,"
Colored regiments bad been authorized,
and ho excluhued ; "The crowning act
of Injustice hill been completed. They
have passed a bill In the House of Rep
resentatives to arm an army of negroes.
Every man who rotes for that bill, and
the Treildent whenho shall have signed It

will resent. I am ready to compro
mise at any time, I am ready to say to
the people of the South 'Come in again

man who desirei to continue fighting
and spending the people's money aud

Congress will not meet until next Dec
ember, and until tbst time the Gover
ment will be under the control of the
abolitionist. It may be that events
will settle the question before that time.
If It goes, on a little longer as ic has
since the President Issued his procla
uiatlon, It Is going against ui. I do
not know whether that proclamation Is
going to be taken back or not: J am

Powhatan's l ove For His Daughter.
A recent work, ','Tbo Romaueo and
Tragedy of Pioneer Llfo," by Augustus
Lynch Mason and John Clark Ridpntli,
from tho publlehlng house of Jones
Kroth'trs & Co., Cincinnati, contains
tho lollowing thrilling Incident In the
lite of the old Indian Emperor, Pow
hatan, whoso oldest daughter, Poca
hontas, ufiei the famous incident, of her
saving the. life cf Captain John Sinilh,
had married en Englishman" of the
colony" named ltolfe:
" ",Suelr benellts have flowed frm the
marriage of Pocahontas, that good
Governor Dale, ploudy ascribing it to
liio Divlno approval which rested on tho
heathen, and reflecting tint another
daughter of Powhatan would form an
additional pledgo of peace, sent Ilainor
and the Interpreter, Thomas Savage, to
Powhatan for the purpose of securing
another daughter for himself. At the
town of Jlatchcut, farther up the river
than Werowocotnoeo, from which tho
emperor had removed on account of the
proximity of the English, tho visitors
wero received. Tho emptor seemed
glad to see Savage, mid Invited liiiil to
his houc, , After a pipe of tobacco hail
been passed around, Powhatan In
quired anxiously ubout his daughter's
welfaie, 'her marriage, his unknown
ron, and how they liked, lived, and
loved together.' Humor answered that
Itolfo w as very well, and 'his daughter
so well content that she would not
change In r life to return und lite with
him, whereat he laughed heartily, and
sjid he was very glad of It.'
"Powhatan then de.-lre.l to ki.ow the
reason of llio unexpected visit. Hamor
raid his message was private, nnd bu
desired no one to be present. Tho cm
pel or lit once ordered the room cleared
of all except the inevitable puir of queens
who sat on cither side of tho monarch.
At a propitiatory introduction to the sub
ject, Humor delivered a message of 'love
and peace,' supplementing it with pres
ents of collet!, bead., Combs, fish -hooks,
and knives, and a promise of the long-wlshed-for
grindstone, whenever Pow
hatan would scud for it. Humor then
proc eded lo Fpcr.k of the great reputa
tion for beauty und attractiveness which
Powhutun's youngest daughter bore, of
the desire of Pocahontas to hve her sif
ter's companionship, of Governor Dale's
intention lo remain permanently In Vir
ginia, and Ids desire, in ease tho young
lady proved to be all that was reported
of her, to make her his ' nearest compan
ion, wife, and bed-fellow.' Such an al
liance, Hamor represented, would bean
honor to all concerned, nnd would form
a new !nd of alliance and friendship.
" When Hamor hud finished, the eiu
eror gracefully u kuowlcdgcd the com
pliment, but protested that his daughter
had been three days married to a certain
one of his kings. Hamor replied that
this wus nothing, that the groom would
readily relinquish her for like ample
presents which Governor Dale v.ould
make, and further, that the vinpe:or
might easily exert his authority to re
claim his daughter on some pretext. To
this baa piopusition tlto old monarch
inadu mi uuswet, of which the nobility
and purity might have put to shame the
brazen Hamor. He confessed that hU
real objection was the love he bore to
his daughter, who was dearer to him
than his own life ; that tnough he bad
many children, none delighted him as
much as she ; that ho could not live un
less he saw her every day during the few
remaining years of his life, which he
could not do If she went to live with tho
English, as ho was resolved never to put
himself In their power by visiting them.
He desired no other pledge of friendship
than the one already existing In the
marriage of his Pobnhontas, unless she
should die, In which case he would glvt
up another child. Finally, ho urged
with vehement and pathetic eloquoncc,
'I hold it not a brotherly part for your
king to endeavor ,to bereave mo of my
two darling children at once. Give him
to understand that, if he had no pledge
at all, ho need not distrust any Injury
from me or my people. There has Deen
already too much of blood and war. Too
many of my people and his have already
fallen In our strlfo, and by my occasion
there shall never be any more. I, who
have power to perform It, have (aid It;
no, uot though I should have just occa
sion offered, for I am now grown old,
and would gladly end my few . remain
ing days in peace and qulot. Even If
the English should offer me Injury, I
would not resent It. 'My country Is
large enough, and I would remove my
self farther from you. I hope this will,
give satisfaction to your king. ' He can
not have my daughter. If he Is not sat
isfied, I will move three day's' Journey
farther from blm, and never tee Eng
lishmen more." ' "
' " ills speech was ended. The barba
rian's halt of state was silent. The
oonnoll Are, unreplenlshed, had burned
low during the Interview, nnd tho great
logs lay reduced toa dull henpol embers,
lit i?rolfi of the aged monarch who had
.i w'tiiri'icir' mi:?t
burned the glowing heat of Are, but
more and more feobly, while over all the
white and feathory ashes were weaving
tho shroud of death.. Call him a savage,
but remember that his shining love for
his daughter only throws, into darker
shadow the infamous propositltion of
the civilized Englishman to tear away
the three days' bride from the arms 'of
her Indian lovur, z& give her to a man
who had already a wife In England.
Call hlin a barbarian, but forget' not
that when his enemies hungered bo had
given them food. When his pcoplo
were robbed, whipped, and Imprisoned
by the Invaders of his country, lie had
only retaliated, and had never failed to
buy the peace to which he was entitled
without money and without price.
Call him a heathen, but do uot deny
that when he said that, If the English
should do him an Injury, ho would not
resent It, but only move farther from
them, he nioro nearly followed the rule
ot the Master, of whom he was ignorant,
than did the faithless, pilfering ad ventu-'
rers at the fort, who rolled their eyes
heavenward and called . themselves
Christians." .. . . .
