The Crisis and Repudiation,
gainst the Attempt to commit the. Demo
cratic party to Repudiation, the Crisis, like
a manpy cur, snapped at it, and then
trrowled oat that the Statesman and sun
dry other persona, whose Democracy was
- supposed to be in bad odor with the party,
were in favor of the payment ol the War
. Debt to the uttermost cent, as though such
a proposition were an indefensible crime in
the - eyes of : Democrats.-. In reply, . we
showed conclusively- that the Statesman
was in harmony with Hon. George H.
Pkndliton, and with the Platform adopt
ed by the last Democratic State Convention,
with reterence to the payment of the Pub
lic DebU-I.We showed that neither favored
nor contemplated Repudiation, and that
Thomas Jifferson, the great apostle of
American Democracy, bad declared as fun
damental in the creed of the party, "the
honest payment of our debts, and the sac
ered preservation of the Public Faith.". .. '
. This - was not satisfactory to the Crisis,
and this week it returns to the subject.
It does not undertake to deny that the
Statesman and Hon. Georgm H. Pesdlb-
aaxt the Democratic State Platform
harmonize perfectly on the Financial ques
tion nor that Thomas Jefferson did not
Inculcate ''the sacred preservation of the
Publio Faith." -! v flj . r.
' The Critit starts out with the declara
tion, that "without ever having admitted
the legality or the constitutionality of the
acts of Congress creating the bonded debt
of this country, M&--the flood at disreputa
ble Greenback ilh which the country hat been
flooded tobs great injury, the Crisis, two years
ago; and ever" since, advocated the pay
ment or these bonds in the currency in
which the debt was Contracted, as a fair
compromise with those-who held them, and
an equitable settlement of the questions
involved In the flnances.'" 1 , It will thai
be seen that the purpose the Critit had at
heart, was to inflict1 upon the country
a sweeping. V flood 6t disreputable ''Green.
backC and to augment "Its great injury."
Tatiditreputabte Greenbacks," sweeping
Injury". Into every nook and corner of the
country-, ft has the effrontery to say was
Hi fair compromise" with the 'holders of
the United Statek Bonds, "and an equitable
settlement of the questions involved in the
finances." ' Will yon tell ns that a scheme
that thds Inflicts "great injury" upon the1
country that ' floods the ' land with
"ditrejufablen currency is a benefit to the
people f iNot such a condition of affairs,
did Hon. George H. Pendleton contem
plate. His plan contemplates no infliction
of great injury" upon the country. The
Democratic State platform did not medi
tate fljoding tne land with "a disreputable"
currency. '. 7
' The Crisis claims the paternity of the
scheme that sought to accomplish all this.
It says : "We originated this proposition." "' It'
has the candor to say, that the ''people
passed upon and rejected it" at "the Presi
dential election;" and a few lines alter-'
wards it absurdly says : "When this plan
the plan the people rejected at the Presi
dential election became immensely popular,
the Statesman, nolens volens, drifted with
the 'current, and became an indiscreet
ctamorer ' lor it." If It means to say the
Statesman was unremitted in the advocacy
or Mr. Pendleton's financial theory, it Is.
right ; otherwise not. And, strange to say,;
the Crisis charges that the Statesman,
while It was Indiscreetly clamoring for the
payment of the 5-20's in Greenbacks, to
the end that there should be a mitigation
of excessive taxation and a restoration of
prosperity to the country, bad the audaci
ty to publish a speech made by the Hon. S.
S.Cox In this city on the 30th of Septem
tember, 1S67, "and warmly approved the
speech?, "and subsequently published
other articles in harmony with this speech."
For the publication ot the speech and the
articles referred .to, we have no apology to
make. It is, however, untrue that we ap
proved either. What we did say. about
Mr. Cox's speech was this: .. .
"The speech of Mr. Cox will be found lu
the Statesman of this morning, and will
be rrad with interest, as are all of Mr
Cox's efforts." -
Is this approval, sir t '
We said distinctly, in giving publication
of the "other articles in harmony win
this speech," that we differed with the au-
thor "in his opposition to paying off the
National Debt as it became due, in legal
tender Botes."
-Was this approval, sir?
It is proper - to say in this connection,
that the Democratic State Convention of
1867, while it reaffirmed the fundamental
doctrines of the' party, did not say one
word as to how the Public Debt should be
paid. It condemned extravagance, and ad
vocated economy, and it denounced exces
sive tariffs, as working - injury to the
people. The Crisis does not allege that its
financial scheme was passed upon in 187(
when we carried the Legislature and nearly
wiped out a Republican majority of 43 000.
The Statesman then spoke for the Demo
cratic State Executive Committee. It was
understood as reflecting the views of Judge
Thurman. 'The circulation of the States
man throughout the State was immense.
This year the Critit was in position. It
was understood to speak for the Demo
cratic State Executive Committee. The
writing editor of that paper is the Secre
tary, of the State Executive Committee.
The paper was : circulated extensively
throughout the State. The pretense is not
set np that it did not have a lair and full
bearing. It went to the people on the
proposition" if "originated." Of course,
it was not "indiscreet" .In its advocacy.
What was the resaltr We' will let the
Critit tell what 11 was. Here is its state
ment of it:
" The issue went to the people in November
last, and tbe proposed compromise, ' by
which the holders of the debt would have
been paid in the currency they paid, with
six years added interest in gold, too re
jected bp the people and the bondholders.
Tnis result settled that question."
Tbe Democracy in the November election,
the time when the Critit says this proposi
tion was tested, were beaten 41,190,
whereas tbe Democracy were beaten on
the Governorship at the election In 1S67,
when Jobs G. Thompson was Chairman of
the Democratic State executive Commit
tee, and the Statesman was understood as
reflecting the views ol the Committee and
of the candidate for Governor, only S,DS3I
And here la thlseounty, this year, where
John G. Thompson was tbe Chairman of
tbe Democratic County Executive Com
mittee, and where the Statesman was rec
ognized as in harmony with the Commit
tee, and as tbe advocate cf Bon. George
H. Pendleton's financial policy, the great
majority of the preceding year, was not
only held at the State election, but was
very largely Increased. - -
While the Criti has abundant cause to
feel that Ut financial bantling, which con
templated flooding the country with "dis
reputable Greenbacks," and thereby the in-
diction of "great iniunT upon the people,
as It now Itself confesses, was "rejected by
tbe people and the Bondholders," and that
"this result settled that question;" we deny
that it rejected and settled . Mr. Pen
dleton's policy.- ' That policy contem
plates good, and not "dlsreputableGreen
backs" for the people I that policy would
bless tbe country with prosperity, and not
curse It with "great Injury," as the Criti,
The people having "rejected" as It itselt
confesses, Ut "favorite plan" it has, since
the election, "been devoting more'or less
space every week to the historical re ml
nlscence of the National Bankruptcy or
Repudiation in the country, ever since our
War debt of the Revolution." II the peo
ple would not have anything to do with its
qualified Repudiation, what guarantee has
It that they will accept us doctrine of un
qualified Repudiation t
If to refuse to teach dishonesty "is far
behind the times," then, does the States
man srlory In being "far behind the time."
We. will say, In . conclusion, that if the
Democratic politicians shall pin their faith
to the Repudiation doctrines of the Crisis,
at the next election the party, Instead
of being defeated 41,000 as this year, it
will be defeated by not less than 80,0001
And then the Crisis would, no doubt, be
ready to exclaim, that ' Its Repudiation
scheme was passed upon and "rejected by
the people and ; the bondholders,' and
would again cast round lor some mon
strous folly to bestride, to lead the party
once more to disastrous defeat. We follow
no such imbecile leadership, i

Arraigned by a Scribler for Not Publishing Slanders on a Citizen.
sea. , ,:: ., ;
An anonymous scribler In the Journal,
deuounces the Statesman for not publish
ing certain proceedings of a so-called tern
perance meeting in Dublin on the 7th In
stant. . The manuscript was handed, so the
scribler writes, to Col. Kevins, the pub
lisher of the Statesman, who, being in
formed that they were the proceedings of
a Temperance meeting, promised to pub
lish them, and to send a proof slip to- tbe
Journal office. Such are the facts alleged
In the article In the Journal . Up to this
stage ol the proceedings, no one connected
with 'the Statesman office had even read
the proceedings. When looked into it was
discovered that there was fraud in tbe mat
ter... The paper presented for publication
contained an attack on a citizen of this
pity, acting as Drputy Sheriff, which, if
published, would have made ns liable to au
indictment for libel. We did not choose to
make the Statesman a vehicle of slander
agalust a faithful public officer, whose
great offense, and on which the slander is
founded, was a mere jesting speech, to men
oi whom he served warrants for liquor
selling... : -., -i i ;- ,:." ,: r-
The : proceedings ' are now subject to
the order of those who left them at this
office. I We decline to publish them, be
cause - they, are slanderous because the
proceedings.' travel out of the business
of a : tern perance . meeting and ' because
tiiose . who got-, up . the ? proceedings)
although j they ; may not -; be guilty
ot drinking liquor, either because 'they
dislike it, Or because the whisky tax
la high, seem very much like the over-
righteous, who, HudibkaS says . 1 -
"Compound the tin they are inclined to, .
By damning those they have do mind to."
" We have more respect for a man who
occasionally takes a glass of ardtnt spirits
a thing, by the bye, we never do and
never have done than those who, under
the mask of temperance, slander their
neighbors, and use the proceedings of a
public meeting to arraign men; guiltless of
crime, in a manner to make them odious.
Intemperance consists not alone in the use
of alcoholic spirits, for it showed itself in
the proceedings of the meeting which we
are abused for not publishing. ,
So much for the proceedings of the Dub
lin, so-called, temperance meeting.

Gigantic Swindling Operation.
NEW YORK, Dec. 17.
, The World to-day devotes several col
umns to what It calls systematic and. in
the aggregate, stupendous swindling, prac
ticed oy the retail grocers and provisiou
dealers on tneir customers in tins city, b
means of false weights and measures. 1
say 8 the results of these tests are tairlv
startling. It is estimated that the loss to
consumers by false weights and adulteries
is full 15 per cent. The one million Deo'
pie on this 'island, counting all classes.
consume an average value of food amount
ing to one dollardaily for each person, rich
and poor. This is an aggregate of $7,000,-
UUU a week, and 364,uuu,uuu a year, so
that with lo per cent, of cheating people
are actually swindled out ot $54,000,000
every year in their purcbase ot food. This
giganticswindling bears most heavily upon
tne poor, woo niaae tneir purcnases in
small quantities, and . are cheated most;
The smallest dealers are tbe greatest swind
lers, and the retailers, as actors are robbers.

The Diaro which is strongly ' in- the
Spanish interest, says: Within the.;urisdic
tion of Santiago de Cuba this year, no
crops would be- gathered. The insurrec

and feed sugar cane to their horses. Steam
transports, expected with reinforcements
from Spain, arrived to-day. The Spaniards,
since their arrival, feel more confident that
the revolution will speedily terminate.'
The Diaro publishes accounts of misery
prevailing in Santiago de Cuba, which it
says is heart rending, and whichever party
wins it is certain tiiat the prosperity of the
eastern district Is ruined tor years to come.
' The account ot the capture ot colors by
the revolutionists, published in New York
journals is untrue. -
The Diaro says that volunteers of San
tiago de Cuba ask that arms be given tbem
immediately, so they may be led against
the revolutionists. ' . ii. --;-'
