To lywf ^ .
a lne Republican party
*tate la concerned—and I
of true here la true of tbe whole North—is
more eloaely united than In many y
members see that It haa been deft

bo ®°K«* 1 ® 0 us than everbefore since ita for
" Ätlon - « »tends out now aUUnUlVely
the party of a protective tariff. NeaMy
all Ite menders who held to the free
trade belief have gone over to the Demo
cratic party In the campaign Just ended.
The party haa no dlvlalona at all aa to Its
p rindplee or theories of government. In
this State It has shown a moat wonderful
strength, when tbe opposition of the In
dependents and all the defections are
considered. But I have never seen a
time In the history of the country when
the Republicans were In so good condi
tion as at present. There is not the
slightest sign of disintegration, but on the
contrary a courageous purpose to keep
tbe organisation Intact for the conflicts
of the future. Tbe people are with the
purty on all Dations! Issues. Tbe Repub
lican party, at a party of principle, can
maintain its organisation without office
better than any party ol moderu times.
It will make no lactiou* opposition to
tbe incoming Democratic Administrai ion.
It will maintains Its principles and battle
for them, doing everything it can lor the
best Interests of the country."
" Do you look to see the tariff question
raised In Gongress again ?"
*• It must be raised. The Democratic
party made an issue on it wbleb the Re
publicans duly accepted. The Democrats
must bring It up. They may not do so at
this winter's session, but they will surely
be obliged to do so by another session.
They cannot Ignore It. "
" Do you think Mr. Cleveland will sat
isfy the Independents as to civil service
44 I don't know about that. 1 haven't
bla confidence on that or any other point,
as you may Imaglre. But I kuow that It
will he simply Impossible lor him to sab
Isfy them and also satisfy the rank aud
file of bis party. Which aide he will un
dertake to satisfy 1 cannot Judge." •
44 Do you think It possible for the Re
publican party to galber and elect a Pre
sident in 1888 !"
41 It has no gathering to do. It is ai
ready gathered. It came within a few
hundred votes of carrying every Northern
State. It la certain that those votes would
have been forthcon ing If the men who
held them had known how close tbe is
would be. They will not be wanting
, so far a« this
bellcre what 1.
" What effect is the election likely to
have on the buslneea Interests of the
44 It will undoubtedly have a depressing
effect for jotne time bccauae of the fact
that the great manufacturing interests
are alarmed, fearing that we are to have
free trade. They will hesitate or decline
to enter Into new enterprises or erect new
entered upon. This will result in a stop
page of all new work and the closing of
many mills and factories temporarily.
The fact which should be impre»sed on
tbe minds of tbe business portion of tbe
community is that the Democrats cannot
materially change the tariff under two
years from next March, and not even then
unless they secure a maJority;iuthe o«nate
After a brtel period ol depression and
consumption ol stocks of goods now in
hand there will be a revival of business.
The great trouble with the business men
now is that there is no certainty as to
what the Democrats will do or attempt
to do. The Democratic party Is divided
ou every great public question—on the
tariff, on banking, ou currency. It has
uo definitely defined principle. Ol course
not knowing what It will do, business
men don't know what to do. A halt is
called all along the line. Capitalists are
not going to luvest while there Is danger
of a change ol all our tariff and fiscal
laws. Not least ol the sufferers by this
uncertainty will be the South. I think
Democratic success will be a great dam
age to the South. It will ''stop the con
tributions of Northern capital that were
flowing in there to develop the mines
continue new schemes only just
aud other resources,
will want to aee what the Democrats of
the South propose to do now that they
have acquired possession of the Govern
ment by arts which they lost by arms.
Our people bave gone In there very slow
ly» with great hesitancy and distrust.
Now they will wait to sec what the South
ern people propose for the future."
