Of the game.
Happy he who stands beside her, and is privi

As she plays !
I could do that pleasant duty to tins Amazonian
beauty
All my days.
A . I watch her garments flutter there are words
1 fain would utter.
But I'm dumb;
For she's tennis mad, and never from her racket
seems to sever—
When I come.
I must take my chance while playing—there is
danger in delaying ;

Look up the street, look down the street—you
cannot see it pass.
And it glides along as noislessly as breath upon

At every breath a mortal draws a new recruit

The old graybeard and beardless lx>y—as all who

Caste and birth forgotten in that silent human

And a Croesus marches humbly with a beggar

Oh! 1 have listened for it, but I've never heard

For it glides along as noislessly as sunbeams

But though I never yet have heard, nor seen it

"OPR MAN, OPR MAN."
Our man, our man, the man from Maine,
The magie man of the name of Blaine;
The man who dares and knows his mind,
This is the man the voters find.
He is no coward ; he leads the way ;
He is the man who's come to stay ;
He is the man who leads the fight ;
Then follow him with mind and might.
Then, one and all, with might and main,
Will cheer our leader from old Maine ;
And when November days shall fall,
Will crown him President of all.
The man whose voice the people heard.
Whose eloquence the people stirred—
This is the man of lofty strain,
The man we love and know from Maine.
Then shout, ami shout, ye voters free,
For our leader from the Pine State tree !
And shout, and shout for James G. Blame,
Our leader bohl from the State of Maine.
And when the sere and yellow leaf
In Fall shall mind us life is brief.
We'll vote, where each is resident,
To make this man our President.

By hugry men I'm swiftly seized

Blaine's Address to the Veterans.
Old Orchard, Maine, August 7.—Elaine
and party arrived from Portland this
morning. The streets were tilled by a
crowd, which gave Blaine an ovation.
Upon his arrival at the hotel Blaine had a
conference with Professor Downing, of
Utica.
Old Orchard, Me., August 7.—It is es
timated that 25,000 persons, including 5,
000 old soldiers, were here to-day to attend
the encampment of the Grand Army of the
Republic. Most of the visitors attended
Blaine's public reception in the Old Orch
ard house. Blaine stood in the center of
the parlor and the crowd passed in single
file and shook hands with Blaine. The re
ception ended at noon.
Old Orchard, August 7.—When Mr.
Blaine ascended the steps of the stand to
address the veterans he was greeted with
shouts, cheers, and cries of, "Blaine, our
next President." He said :
Gentlemen of the Grand Army of Maine :—
1 thank you for so kindly and cordial a
greeting. The occasion has been one of
great pleasure to me in the renewal of old
acquaintances and the recalling of old
j scenes in civil life that antedate your
; splendid deeds of war. My mind is carried
j back to the winter of 1861, to the excite
1 ment, elation,and at the same time serious
ness and sadness of that omnious and
! critical era. I vividly remember every
incident as we stood on the eve of a gigan
! tic straggle, when at last the war cloud
burst and President Lincoln issued his
proclamation for 75,000 men. Maine was
asked for one regiment. Governor Wash
! burne summoned an extra session of the
Legislature. I had the honor at the time
to be Speaker of the House of Representa
tives. Patriotism was fervid, confidence
was strong, and we younger members of
the Legislature—I was but 31 years old
myself—determined to do something very
I bold—something that we ventured to hope
would be rather appalling to the
confederate government. Instead of
responding with one regiment, which
the President had asked for, we autho
rized the Governor to offer ten regiments
to the national government, and though
entirely unused to a State debt, we em
powered the Governor to borrow $1,000,
000 on the faith of the State for immedi
ate use in the equipment of troops. We all
felt that we were bragging when we used
these big figures. We felt sure that our
ten regiments would never be used, for
such a contingent from Maine implied a
larger force than Napoleon and Wellington
both controlled on the field of Waterloo.
General Fleming, you, far better than I,
know the sequel. Our ten regiments were
swept into the vortex of war before the
expiration of half a year, and we ended
by sending thirty-two regiments of infan
try, two regiments of cavalry, and nine
batteries of artillery. This, with the re
cruits needed to keep their ranks full in
the terrible contest, absorbed more than
70,000 men of Maine. A draft almost as
large in proportion to the arms bearing
population as Frederick the Great levied
on the provinces of Prussia in the hard
est pressed period of the seven years war.
You, gentlemen, are an honored and im
portant part of the survivors of that great
host. I join with you in the commemora
tion services for the unreturning braves,
for that great host who died for their
country and for liberty. No victory ever
assured so much good to mankind ; none
ever prevented so much evil. The struggle
is over, and our triumph is celebrated not
with a sense of having conquered the foe,
but with that better sense of having re
claimed our kinsmen and brought them
back to their own heritage and the protec
tion of their own fiag. Beneath that fiag
North and South, East and West will all
find protection. Under its sheltering folds
we shall all dwell together in unity, for
we are brethren.
The speech closed amid a tumult of ap
plause which lasted ten minutes.
A Picture by an Old Artist.
A friend has handed us the follow ing
extract from Nestor's address to Agamem
non from act 1, scene 3, Troilns and Cres
sida. Its application to the Republican
standard-bearer will be recognized, at least
by friends and admirers. There are a good
many "bauble boats" venturing out on the
Presidential seas, but when the November
storm sweeps over them it will be seen
how wisely the people understood their
business who entrusted the fortunes of the
Republican party to the pilot from Maine :
***** In the reproof of chance.
Lies the true proof of men. The sea being
smooth.
How many shallow bauble lioats dare sail
Upon her patient breast, making their way
With those of nobler bulk !
But let the ruffian Boreas once enrage
The gentle Thetis, and, anon, behold
The strong-ribbed bark through liquid moun
tains cut,
Bounding between the two moist elements,
Like Perseus' horse : Where's then the saucy
boat.
Whose weak untimbered sides but even now
Co-rival'd greatness? Either to harbor fled,
Or made a toast for Neptune. Even so
Doth valor's show and valor's worth divide
In storms of fortune.
The Campaign Discussed.
New York, August 5.—General Logan
discussed the plan of the campaign for
three hours at the Republican National
headquarters to-day with Secy. Samuel
Fessenden, Chairman B. A. Jones, Ex-Gov
ernor Oglesby, of Illinois, Walter Phelps,
Garrett H. Hobart, Gen. Hawley and Con
gressman Barrows.
Politics at Miles City.
I Yellowstone Journal.]
Although we shall have no voice in the
selection of the President, there is probably
as much inteiest taken in Miles City in the
outcome as anywhere. Though the cam
paign has just commenced, party spirit
runs high, and promises to bubble over
during the campaign. The hoisting ol a
Cleveland and Hendricks fiag a lew days
ago put the Blaiue and Logan boys on
their inettleand yesterday Walter Burleigh
and Abe Le Roy iu a two hours' canvass ol
the local Republicans raised something
over 8150 to swing a Biaine and Logan
banner over Main street. The banner will
be 15x20 feet, artistically decorated with
portraits of the nominees and their names,
together with other appropriate insignia
and embellishments, mounted on netting
which will permit it to swing gracefully in
the hardest storm 3 , indicative ol the pur
pose of the party to face all assaults man
fully and triumph iu the end. It will be
a credit to the Republicans of Miles City
as well as to tlie town.
Cleveland's Character.
(Boston Journal.]
We have been repeatedly and warmly as
sured by Democratic and Independent jour
nals that the present campaign is to be pre
eminently one based upon character. The
Independent platform opens with the dec
laration: "The paramount issue of the
Presidential election of this year is moral
rather than political." The New York In
dependents based their call upon "the in
terests oj public morality." The New York
Evening Post a few days since remarked:
"We presume there are very few observers
of the political field to-day who doubt any
longer that the personal character of the
candidates is to lie the great issue and the
chief topic of discussion in the canvass.
We have, therefore, the very highest Inde
pendent authority when we urge the im
portance of investigating, and not of in
vestigating merely, but of vindicating, if
that be possible, the personal character of
Grover Cleveland, the Democratic candi
date for the Presidency. It cannot he said
that we have intruded the personal issue
into the canvass. It has been pushed for
ward by the other side. The unmeasured
laudations of Governor Cleveland and the
unsparing and malignant aspersions of Mr.
Blaine, which have constituted up to the
present time pretty much all there is of
the Democratic-Independent campaign, not
only justify but compel an examination of
the personal character of the Democratic
candidate.
To what disclosure is such au examina
tion likely to lead ? We will contribute a
few points toward the solution of the ques
tion. The Morning Star, a Baptist paper,
published at Dover, New Hampshire, and
for nearly sixty years an influential and re
spected representative of its denomination,
iu its issue of July 16, in an editorial ar
ticle upou the Democratic candidate, used
the following extraordinary language:
"Historians agree that lust in high places
is one of the greatest perils to public morals
and national security. It would he a most
alarming symptom of ruin to this republic
if personal crimes were to be ignored in
candidates for office. The safety of the
republic, the morals of the people, the best
interests of young men, require that the
villains should be exposed and the penalty
of uniform defeat be visited upon every
man who is convicted of crime. There are
papers in New York State that opeuly ac
cuse the Democratic candidate for the
Presidency of committing crimes against
chastity which, if he is guilty of them,
make the mention of his name in connec
tion with the White House a gross sac
rilege. Solely in the interests of morality
do we refer to this sickening subject. If
Mr. Cleveland is innocent let it be made to
appear. Such charges as these are not to
be ignored. With such evidence as lies
before us at this writing it would be crimi
nal for us to forbear saying this much. We
loathe Mormonism, but not half so much
as we loathe a kindred crime that does not
even seek the semblance of law or of fa
naticism fur its justification."
This is not ihe language of malignant
partizanship, but of the outraged moral
sense, crying out against sickening in
iquity in a character paraded before the
public eye as a model of integrity. It is
scarcely to be supposed that a conservative
religions journal would use such words of
a candidate of a great party for the Presi
dency of the United States, unless it had
in its possession evidence which made it
an imperative duty to speak, and to speak
plainly. What this evidente is we have
no authority to say. What it may be it is
not difficult to guess from other material at
command. Last Monday evening a reputa
ble Buffalo journal, published at Cleve
land's home, devoted three columns of its
space to a plain, straightforward and ex
plicit narrative of the Governor's immor
alities. Gross licentiousness and drunken
ness are the offenses positively alleged
against Governor Cleveland, and the de
tails are given of one particularly heart
less case with which the Governor's name
is connected. Prominent citizens of Buffalo
are named specifically as possessing knowl
edge of the facts, and ready, if necessary,
to substantiate them in court. If these
assertions are true, it is time that the
masquerade of Governor Cleveland as the
embodiment of personal integrity should
come to an end. "We do not believe that
the American people, if these statements
are proved to be true, would elevate to the
Presidency of the United States a betrayer
of women, a man of shameless and profli
gate life. But if these assertions are not
true it must be an easy thing to disprove
them. They are not vague, but specific.
The persons concerned in them, or with
definite knowledge of them, are named.
The charges are not to be disposed of as
idle scandal or campaign calumnies. Re
sponsible parties are behind them, and can
be held accountable for them.
We submit these three propositions, and
shall be pleased to maintain them against
all comers :
1. That Governor Cleveland cannot
ignore these accusations.
2. That if they are true, he is not fit
for the position he now holds, and far less
to be placed at the head of 55,000,000 of
people.
3. That the failure to meet and dis
prove these charges will be a confession of
guilt. ___________
Seeking Seclusion.
Albany, August 6.—Gov. Cleveland
leaves Albany to-morrow afternoon for the |
upper Saranac lake, Adriondacks, where
he will probably pass a two weeks vacation.
The Governor states that all rumors con
cerning his letter of acceptance are with
out foundation.
Albany, N. Y., August 7.—Gov. Cleve- j
land left at noon for the Adriondacks. His
letter of acceptance will probably not be
issued until his return. He expects to be 1
absent two weeks.
A Visit to Headquarters.
New York, August 7.—Ex-Governor
Hendricks, candidate for Vice President,
visited the National Democratic headquar
ters to-day.
The Two Emperors.
Ischl, August 7.—Emperor Francis
Joseph gave an audience to-day to Tisza,
Prime Minister for Hungary. He then
visited the Emperor of Germany. and the
Empero^ were together half an bour.
Later Emperor William gave an audience
to Tisza. The Emperors then dined to
gether. Tisza and Count Bedenovich,
Minister for Croatia and Slavonia, were
also present at the dinner. The Emperors
drove to the station together, and Emperor
William left at 4 o'clock. They embraced
and kissed each other repeatedly before
parting. There were ovations everywhere.
The Railroad Conference.
Chicago, August 7.—The committee of
nine appointed to consider and report some
line of action for the guidance of the
Western and Southwestern trunk lines, did
not go into session until after 11 o'clock
this forenoon. The general situation re
mains as indicated iu the Associated Press
dispatches yesterday. It is declared that a
continuance of the tripartite agreement will
be discussed and possibly a decision reached
to-day. As nearly as can be ascertained
the Rock Island is now the only road op
posed to the abandonment of that combi
nation. If it maintains its present attitude
the future is uncertain and the meeting
may adjourn without action. The officials
generally take the view that a decisive
vote on the question will be taken to-day.
The conference adjourned at 1:30 o'clock,
having demonstrated that it was impossi
ble to reconcile all the differences at a gen
eral conference. The entire subject of the
maintenance of the Colorado rates and the
further existence of the tripartite agree
ment was referred to a committee of five,
composed of Gen'l Managers Hughitt, Pot
ter, Cable, Robinson aud Kimball, who
were instructed to report on or before Sep
temlier 23. In the meantime the present
rates are to be rigidly maintained.
Ch ic ago, August 7.—The Yepresentati ves
of the roads interested in traffic between
Chicago and Omaha, that is the St. Paul,
Northwestern, Rock Island, Wabash and
Burlington, met this afternoon after an
adjournment of the committee of nine and
agreed to restore all rates between the
points named. A committee consisting of
Ripley, of the Rock Island road and Com
missioner Vining, of the Western Trunk
Line Association, were appointed to
arrange details. The representatives of the
lines in the Central Iowa Traffic Associ
ation continued in session to-day. It was
agreed to advance the rates between
Chicago and Des Moines to the basis of 75
cents per hundred for first-class lumber.
They adjourned until to-morrow.
Charles Frances Adams and party left
for New York this evening.
The Representatives of the lines in the
Utah pool met this afternoon. In view of
the notice of withdrawal by the Atchison,
Topeka & Santa Fe Express on August
24th it was resolved to maintain the pres
ent rates till September 23d, when the
committee on the transaction of the
Missouri business will report.
A meeting of the Chicago and St. Louis
pool lines was held to-day to consider the
notice of the withdrawal of the Illinois
Central, which expires ou the 15th of
August. Pending further negotiations for
a settlement of existing difficulties, an ex
tension of the notice to Septemlier 15th
was consented to.
A meeting of the Transcontinental
Association is called to assemble at Sara
toga September 2d, the day before the
notice of withdrawal by the Atlantic &
Pacific Express expires.
The arbitrators of the trunk line pool
to-day continued the consideration of the
question of percentages, referred to them
by Commissioner Fink. The chief matter
is the claim by the Grand Trunk for an
increased percentage. The arbitrators
made their award and forwarded it to the
commissioner. The character of the award
was not made known.
Canadian Pacific Progress.
[Sun River Sun.]
R. J. Daniels, a gentleman who has been
connected with Muir's engineer corps, now
working in the Kicking Horse Pass on the
Canadian Pacific, arrived here Sunday
morning. He reports that the engineers
are pushing the tunuel rapidly considering
the difficulties under which they labor, by
being so far away from any supply point,
and having to pack everything into their
camp on mules. Muir will complete his
contract this fall. There yet remains
about 400 miles of road to be built before a
connection can be made east and west.
Mr. Daniels is not entranced with the great
north land. One or two things are plenty
there : country, for instance, and townsitei
Silver City has lived its life and is dead.
The quartz mines owned by Montana par
ties there are being developed, but will re
quire the expenditure of considerable
money yet before they will yield any ma
terial return. He thinks Calgary will
make the chief city of that country.
[River Press. |
The Canadian Pacific Railroad Company
are seriously agitating the subject of a
railroad to Fort Benton, and it need not
occasion surprise if the road was com
menced in the spring. The shipment of
cattle is the important object in view, and
this is of sufficient importance to make
the road a paying one from the beginning.
The opening of the reservation at the next
session of Congress will be an additional
inducement for the building of the road.
We are informed by a gentleman just
from the north that the authorities are in
earnest, so we may take hope that the
present depression in business will give
place to renewed activity before another
year. _ _
New Railroad to Yellowstone Park.
A syndicate, embracing the Hon. Alex-
ander MacNab, of London, England; I. A.
Stearns and L. J. Shoemaker of Wilkes-
barre, Penn. ; H. M. Munsell and Edwin
H. Trafton, of New York ; R. Gray of
Pennsylvania, A. C. Apgar, of Trenton, N.
J., and John R. Bothwell, of New York,
Las been formed for the purpose of build-
ing a railroad from Cheyenne to the Yel-
lowstone National Park. They have or-
ganized a company called the Wyoming &
Yellowstone Park Railroad and Develop-
ment Company, with a capital of $10,000,-
000, and it is understood that this company
will amalgamate the Cheyenne, Black Hills
& Montana Railroad Company, which was
organized about three months ago, bnt
which has not as yet built any road. The
enterprise is considered well-based and is
regarded as the largest and most important
of any seen in Wyoming since the build-
ing of the 1'nion Pacific. Members of the
syndicate are now looking over the ground.
The probable route is from Cheyenne to
North Laramie, and thence westward to
the park.

The Gold Reserve.
Washington, August 6.—Iu order to
avert as much as possible the continued
decrease inthe gold reserve, which amounts
to little over $117,000,000 as 'compared
with $142,000.000 on the 1st of May, it has
been decided to restrict the further pay
ment of gold certificates from the treasury
and when possible to make payments in
other funds than gold, or its immediate pa
per representative.
Total Abstinence Union.
Chicago, August 7.—The Catholic To
tal Abstinence Union of America, at its
session this forenoon rescinded the resolu
tion to hold the next convention at Notre
Dame, Indiana, and it was' decided to hold
the next convention at New Haven, Conn.,
on the first Wednesday in August, 1885.
A number of amendments to the consti
tution were acted upou after which ad
dresses were made by Bishops Spalding and
Ireland.
Chicago, Aug. 7.—At the Catholic Total
Abstinence Society session this afternoon
the committee on resolutions presented a
long report. It characterize? those who
cause crime and misery by selling intoxi
cating liquors as criminals, and holds that
moral suasion alone cannot prevail against
intemperance, that ihe law must be invok
ed, aud that it is a dire calamity to trust
the management of public affairs to those
who hold office at the good will of the
liquor dealers.
The report continues: While we recog -
ui/.e moral suasion as abasis of temperance
work, we nevertheless declare our confi
dence iu the legal restriction of the liquor
traflic as a means to the advancement of
that work such restriction may go to what
ever sense best to use in our capacity of
Catholic temperance citizens. We empha
size the fact, however, that we cannot
countenance, or iu any way encourage the
liquor interests much less vote for it.
An attempt to insert a resolution in fa
vor of actual prohibition caused a spirited
discussion. The report of the committee
prevailed without any change.
The report also declared that it is a right
of the Catholics in the army and the navy
of the United States to have'Catholie chap
lains, and sympathizes with the struggles
of the Irish people in protesting against
the effort of the Italian government to
take possession of the property of the pro
paganda, and compliments President Ar
thur for his prompt action in saving the
American college to the propaganda.
The following officers were elected : Pres
ident, Rev. J. M. Cleary ; Vice President,
Rev. James F. Melia ; Treasurer, Rev. J. R.
Banks ; Secretary, Philip A. Nolan.
During the forenoon session a committee
of seven was appointed to drafta memorial
on the subject of total abstinence to be
presented to the coming Bishops council at
Baltimore.
How a Cholera Patient Feels.
The patient feels well up to within a
few hours of the attack, or, it may be, goes
to lied and sleeps soundly through the
night, and immediately on rising in the
morning is seized with violent purging
and vomiting. If judiciously treated,
many patients recover from this, the first
stage of the cholera ; but if neglected, the
tendency of the disease is to grow rapidly
worse.. The patient complains of intense
thirst and a burning heat at the pit of his
stomach : he suffers also excruciating pain
from cramps in the muscles of his extremi
ties : he is terribly restless ; and his urgent
cry is for water to quench his thirst, and
that some one might rub his limbs, and
thus relieve the muscular spasm. The
pulse is rapid and very weak, the respira
tions are hurried, and the patient's voice
becomes husky. His countenance is pinch
ed, and the integuments of his body feel
inelastic and doughy, while the skin of his
hands and feet becomes wrinkled and pur
plish in color. The duration ol this, the
second stage of cholera, is very uncertain—
it may last for two or three hours only, or
may continue for twelve or fifteen hours ;
but so long as the pulse can be felt at the
wrist, there are still good hopes of the sick
person's recovery. The weaker the pulse
becomes the neaier the patient is to the
third, or collapse, stage of cholera, from
which probably not more than thirty-five
per cent, recover. In the the third stage
of the disease the purging and vomiting
continue, a! though in a mitigated form,
and the skin is covered with a clammy
perspiration, especially if the cramps are
still severe. The patient remains terribly
restless, longing only for sleep, and that he
may lie supplied with water. His intellect
is clear ; but he seldom expresses any anx
iety regarding worldly affaiis, although
fully conscious of the dangerous position
he is in. Sleep and a plentiful supply of
drinking water are the sole desires of a
person passing through the collapse state
of cholera. This condition seldom lasts
more than twenty-four hours, and reaction
either commences within that period or
the patient dies in collapse or passes on
into the tepid stage, which, in 99 cases out

Redeeming the Uplands.
[Fort Benton Press,1
The amount of land that is being re
claimed for agricultural purposes in Cho
teau county will make it this season the
garden spot of Montana. The Eldorado
Ditch Company, taking their water from
the Teton and bringing it to the Muddy,
will reclaim at least 100,000 acres. Work
on this ditch is being prosecuted with
vigor. Other parties are taking out a ditch
from Dupuyer creek, which will irrigate
all that land between the Dupuyer and the
Marias. Another ditch [is taken out of
Birch creek, carrying 5,000 inches of water,
which can be extended for a distance of
twenty miles and irrigate an immense tract
of country heretofore useful only as graz
ing lands. In fact all over the country will
be found smaller ditches carrying water for
six or eight ranches.

A great many applications have already
been received by the Secretary of War.
but as the Quartermaster General has
charge of the entire matter of making the
selections, they are immediately referred
to this Department. The Secretary will
make the appointments only upon the re
commendations of that officer.
A Newburyport correspondent writes :
"Lieut. Greely is by no means a man of
imposing appearance. He is, indeed,
directly the opposite. Tall, reaching a
height of fall six feet, with narrow chest,
thin, delicate hands, and feet almost small
enough for a lady, complexion light, even
to paleness, although partially concealed
by a heavy brown English beard, thin,
gaunt cheeks, blue eyes shaded by glasses
—his whole figure presents the picture of
a life long student rather than a hardy
soldier and explorer. And yet beneath all
is the strong powerful will which never
bows down under opposition or despair,
and the fixed determination of adherence
to method and discipline. There is
the mental enduranee which holds
sway over the physical." The same writer
had an interview with Lieutenant Greely's
aged mother, who speaks with great pride
and enthusiasm of her son, and has innu
merable anecdotes of him. She said : "His
father and grandfather were both soldiers
in the War of 1821, and his father was also
Captain of the Washington Light Infan
try. Adolphus was wounded three times.
His worst wound wasreceived at Antietam.
when a bullet went iuto his mouth, cut
out four teeth and then came out of the
cheek. He went to the Army hospital—
and just to see his pluck. Nobody would
attend to him there, so he traveled thirty
miles to Harrisburg. Pa., walking part of
the way, to the city hospital there. He left
that hospital before he was entirely well.
Then he was wounded in the shin and in
the side. At Fredericksburg Gen. Burn
side ordered Adolphus's regiment over to
the city, and there the soldiers couldn't go
out in the streets without getting fired at
from attic windows. When Adolphus came
home on a furlough he had seven bullet
holes in his coat. While there he had
command of his company although only
an orderly sergeant.
A New Way of Giving a Girl the Shake.
[Bozeman Courier.]
We are reliably informed—two fair, truth
ful young ladies being the informants—
that one day this week a gallant (?) young
man (we do not say that he is an attache
of the Chronicle office) went up to the ;
mountains on a berrying excursion, taking
his best girl with him. During their |
search lor huckleberries it appears that the ;
couple became separated and did not hap
pen to find each other up to tlfe time that 1
the sombre shades of evening suggested a
journey towards the safe and peaceful re- i
treats of home, sweet home. Instead of
lingering and searching around the base of |
the romantic mountains, the young, unsen
timental swain mechanically hitched his 1
steed to the carriage and drove home, leav
ing his Dulcina, so far as he knew, to the
mercy of the wild beasts or the hospitality
of the mountain glens. Luckily, the young
lady, on ascertaining that she was lost in :
the woods, had struck out in a bee-line for
home, which she reached before her gal
lant (?) escort arrived in the city. It is
reasonable to infer that this particular
twain will never be one flesh in the subse
quent futurity.

[Dillon Tribune, Aug. 2.]
Died at his residence in Dillon on Tues
day, July 29th, after a short illness, Major
W. G. Barkley, in the sixty-fifth year of
his agi . The deceased was well known iu

POLITICAL.
Thl Pittston (Pa.) Gazette reminds its
reader ;hat in the earlier years of the Re
bellion Harpers Weekly traduced Abraham
Lincoln precisely as it does Blaine new.
Louisville Charier-Jon nod (Item, i: In
his habits Blaine is an exemplary
character ; in his domestic life he is an
anectionate and worthy paterfamilias.
Henry Ward Beecher has written to
the Hon. George R. Peck, of Topeka
Ks., that because of the late develop
ments he will not support Grover Cleve
land in the coming - campaign.
New York Star (Dem.): Mr. Tilden
uas bought the yacht Viking, and is go
ing on a cruise. W hen he gets sick
enough he will dictate that congratula
tory letter to Governor Cleveland.
James French, Jr., chairman of the
town committee of Trenton, Oneida
county, N. Y., writes: "Although this
town was once the home of Grover Cleve
land, it will gi\e Blaiue 400 majority."
Indianapolis Journal ( Rep.) : We un
derstand that Mr. Cleveland is a verv
popular candidate in England. On the
other hand, in the language of George
William Curtis, Mr. Blaine "has the
American instinct.
Philadelphia Call (Rep.) : The Lon
don Spectator calls him Mr. Cleveland,
of Ohio. No doubt the Spectator thinks
()hio is a sort ot authorized nursery
where ! residents are raised and get
ready for the market.
Mr. Vrooman, Secretary of the Re
publican State Committee of New York,
says that information from Buffalo, the
home of Gov. Cleveland, places it' be
yond all question that Blaine will carry
Erie county by 5,000 majority.
Exclaims the New York Star , the blithe
Tammany organ : As lor Cleveland, was
there ever a candidate endorsed by the
mighty Democratic party—not excepting
Horace Greeley who wentinto a campaign
with such threatening elements of defeat
surrounding him ?
Hendricks, at Saratoga, advised that
the Buffalo scandal be treated with abso
lute silence. Democrats are not all of that
way of thinking. Many believe with
Dana, that an answer, if that is posssble,
should be made. Others think the wisest
course is to "cheek it through."
James Burk, of Madison, Wis., a
life-long Democrat, is out iu a card' to
the State Journal denouncing the Demo
cratic candidate for President as "a
triend of monopolists and an enemy of
Irishmen," and calls on his fellow coun
trymen to vote the Blame-Logan ticket.
Buffalo Times (Dem.): Coming from ob
scurity himself, Grover Cleveland makes—
as all such men are liable to—one of the
mast arbitrary, selfish and domineering
aristocrats. He has forfeited the sympathy
and support ol the laboring classes of this
State, and he can never regain their con
fidence.
Charles A. Dana, in the New York
Sun of July 30th, says: "We have re
ceived several letters urging that Cleve
land should be withdrawn. Some wish
this because they think Cleveland can
not unite the Democratic party ; others
because they have adopted the'opinion
that his moral character is bad. "
Xew Äorth - 11 est : Curtis is a great
stickler for civil service reform and op
posed to making offices a reward for
party services. Hendricks says when
the Democrats get in they will turn out
the Republican office-holders and put in
Democrats. \ et Curtis supports Hen
dricks. He has sent his conscience out
for a summer vacation, and all that is
despicable of him is now editing Har
per's Weekly.
Iheodore Rosevelt, the young Repub
lican Independent of New York, upon
whom Geo. Win. Curtis expended so much
persuasion to join him in his treacherous
betrayal of the Republican party, says:
"A number ol Independents are dis
satisfied with my course in declaring for
Blaine, but this is not creditable to their
intelligence. I should think little of
myselt should I permit the Independents
to dictate to me any more than the ma
chine."
The New \ ork Sun says: "If a man
is immoral in his life, if he has deceived
and betrayed women or abandoned his
illegitimate children, he is a wretch who
ought not to he tolerated, much less pro
moted to stations of official trust." This
is strong language from a courageous
journal, and it now looks as though Mr,
Cleveland would have to clear up his
record or lose the support of the most
influential Democratic paper in the
country.
Inflamed at the presence in New York
of James Gordon Bennett, Jr., whose paper
extols Cleveland and derides Kelly, the
Star thus characterizes "the journalistic
Ismaélite:
"Immoral himself, his sympathies are
with immorality ; degraded in sentiment,
degradation is a passport to his patronage ;
indecent in action and violative of social
proprieties, as he has ever been, the ex
hibition of like characteristics by others
commands his fervor and fa' or ; and the
more aggravated the offeDse the higher
will l»e the estimate of worth."
Stubbing Allray at Anaconda.
[Butte Inter-Mountain,7th.
From a gentleman who arrived in Butte
last evening from Anaconda we learn that
a stabbing affray, quite serious iu its na
ture. occurred in that burg Tuesday even
ing. It.seems that George Miller and an
other party, whose name we are unable to
learn, had been drinking quite freely in
the brewery. A discussion arose and
words led to blows. In the melee Miller
was stabbed eight times. He r< eived five
digs in the back, one in the leg, one in the
hand and one in the face. The party who
did the stabbing made his escape anil was
last seen at Silver Bow, probably making
for Butte. Miller's wounds are not con
sidered serious.
