Ohio's Verdict.
There is but one opinion in regard to the
election of Tuesday in Ohio. The canvass
has been one of unusal thoroughness, the is
sues presented to the people have been fully
and fairly discussed, the utmost freedom of
speech has been used everywhere, and the
ablest and the humblest speakers have had
'heir say without interruption. The last three
months have been the golden age of the dema
gogue, the Socialist, the Communist, and the
self-styled philanthropist- Xever were so
many unnecessary tears shed over the fate of
the workingmen of Ohio, and never were so
many devoted, self-denying political agitators
and mountebanks ready to lay themselves as
willing sacrifices for a consideration at the
feet of the people. The State has been flood
ed with newspapers whose sole business was
to array labor against capital, the poor
against the rich, to overturn as far as possible
the old-fashioned ways of society and incul
cate a spirit of opposition to law, order, the
rights of property and the wholesome restraints
of decency and morality. New theories of
the duties of Government have been-prescnted
in the most attractive shape, and the work
ingmen was told that wealth ;was no longer
the result of economy and labor, but could be
created at the bidding of the law-making
power, and he had only to vote right, and
wealth and prosperity would follow his foot
steps. The cheap" money, greenback hobby
of the reformers was presented to the artless
voter in every shape ingenious and brilliant
oratory could suggest, and all was done that
could be done to inflame the passions and ex
cite the avarice of men.
Meanwhile.the Republican party had only
its noble record, its dignified, honest, manly
platform of princip'e to present to the people.
It had no new wav to oav old HhIhs nr.
scheme of trading new lamps for old, no plan
ior making people rich except the old fashion
ed waj's of patient labor and careful economy. I
It insisied that the National honor should be !
protected, its promises faithfully redeemed,
and its money made equal to gold and silver.
The Republican party scouted with contempt
the doctrine that money was the mere creMure
of Government that wealth could be gener
ated by law. It said that to issue irredeema
ble paper money in time of peace was a fraud,
a snare and a crime that to do so would only
benefit gamblers, speculators and professional
dealers in money. It held up to contempt the
glib tongued demagogues who tried to deceive
the people and by every plausible artrumnnt
decoy them into the snares of Socialism, Com
munism or Greenbuckism. To the everlasting
honor of the people they stood firm against all
the cunning and duplicity practiced uponthem.
The result has been that the State of Ohio has
once more placed on record its hearty adhei- !
euce io itepuuncan principles. There can be
no longer any doubt about the views of her
people. They are in favor of payioe the pub
lic debt, of keeping the honor of the Nation
untarnished, of making good all our contracts
of sound m..ucy, gold, silver and paper, inter
convertible at the will of the holder. Ohio
has placed her verdict of condemnation upon
both the Democratic and National policy, and
utters her voice with no uncertain sound. By
system of juggling fraud in the creation of
Congressional districts her will may be defeat
ed in the National House of Representatives;
but time will cure nil that. The patient wait
er is no loser. In the meanwhile all patriotic
men throughout the laud can rejoice that the
great State of Ohio has ranged herself once
more on the side of honest money, protection
to property, and sound public morals, and
that her people are too wise, prosperous, and
ntelligent to he led away into bankruptcy and
iNational dishonor by embracing the mad
schemes of modern "reformers" held out for
their destruction -f Cleveland Hearld.
The Frauds In Florida.
'For some time past the New York Tribune
.has been publishing instalments Of a mass of
cipher dispatches alleged to have been sent,
immediately after the Presidential election
and pending the count, between leading Dem
ocrats in the South and New Y'ork City. It
has now commenced their publication in reg
ular order of date, accompanied by transla
tions, and the tale they tell is a startling one.
Monday's Tribune were given the keys to
the ciphers ai d the manner in which they
were discovered by the patient and persistent
labors of an expert in deciphering crypto
graphs. The cjphers used in the Southern
series of dispatches were vastiy more difficult
than that employed in the notorious Oregon
correspondence. They combined the sys
terns of transposition and substitution, and
there were ten series of transposition ciphers
employed, with frequent combinations of
these and occasional variations. But it is an
axiom among experts in cryptography that
no cipher is so perfect but it can be decipher
ed in time by skill and patience, provided
there is sufficient material for comparison' and
analysis. As there are about two hundred of
the cipher dispatches there was no lack of fa
cilities for such examination. The published
keys can be fitted to the ciphers by anyone,
and their accuracy ascertained beyond .a
shadow of doubt.
Tuesday's Tribune contained the dispatches
relating to Florida, numbering over seventy.
The principal parties to the cipher corres
pondence are Tilden's nephew, CoL Pelton,,
and his intimate friend, Henry Havemeyer,
in New York, and his confidential agents,
Manton Marble, of New York; C. W. Wooley
of Cincinnati, and John F. Coyle, of Wash
ington, in Florida. Mr. Marble needs no in
troduction. Mr. Woolley and Coyle were
gentlemen having experience m crooked tran
sactions. The other persons sending or re
ceiving cipher dispatches were local Demo
cratic politicians in Florida. The story be
gins with an open dispatch, November Oth,
two days after the election, from members of
the Democratic State Committee to Abeam S.
Hewitt, asking him to "send a good man hero
to represent your committee, with an un
stood cipher." Mr. Hewitt replied on the
same day, "Telegram ree'd. He has gone on."
That night John F. Coyle left Washington
for Florida, in obedience to instructions, with
an "understood cipher," in which he reported
to Havemeyer his progress, and requested
funds to be placed at his disposal. Ou the
14th Woolley telegraphed Havemeyer that hfj
was en route to Tallahassee and coulj reach
there next day. Two days later Mr. Marble
was on the ground and sent a long cipher
dispatch to Colonel Pelton in which ho ex-
pretsed his confidence in a clean Democratic
majortty. Marble's frequent dispatches for
the next thiee or four days show a continued
belief in that result, but on the. 21st he be
came discouraged, said be had bat just ob
tained a knowledge of the whole situation,
and pronounced tie local imbec 'lity to be al
moet past belief. From that time not a line
was sent by Mr. Marble or any other of the
Democratic operators in Florida, even in the
most secret ciphers, intimating a belief that
the State had gone for Tilden. On the con
trary, it was evident preparations were mak
ing for something very different from secu
ring a true count of the votes cast.
Ou the 22d of November Mr- Marble tele
graphed Colonel Pelton, "Woolley asks me
to say, Let forces be got together immediate
ly in readiness for contingencies either here
or in Louisiana." A dispatch from New York
to O. W. Woolley, dated November 23d,
asked, "Is party from 'Europe you pointed
out to me here as an old shuffler of earda
trustworthy, and do what be professes?"
Marble became suspicious of Woolley, and
in a cipher dispatch of November' 27th to
Pelton, pronounced him "a nuisance and im
pediment, trusted by nobody," adding, "I de
cline to committ Tilden with man so indis
creet." Commit Tildtm lo what ? The ex
planation can be found in the subsequent dis
patches. The day after the dispatch Marble
telegraphed Governor Grover, of Oregon, to
refrain from issuing certificate to an elector
in that State until advised thereon, and at the
same time telegraphed to "G." W. Smith," at
Tilden's residence in New York, to obtain
and send Grover an opinion from "O'Conor.
At this point matters became somewhat com
plicated. The parties at 15 Gramercy Park
were carrying on independent secret negotia
tions of an exceedingly confidential cbarac
ter with both Marble and Woolley, and each
was getting in the other's way. Marble had
requested Woolley's recall, and Woolley,
on the 1st of December, asked Havemeyer to
"stop Marble from making propositions to
the enemy." On the same day this dispatch
was sent from Woolley to Havermeyer id
cipher :
H. Havemeyer, 15 West Seventeenth St., N. Y:
Board fetch may make necessary expense
of half cf a hundred thousand dollars. Can
you say will deposit in bank immediately if
To this a reply was immediately received
as follows :
NEW YORK, Dec. 1.
C. W. Woolley, Tallahassee, Fla.
Telegram received. Will deposit dollars
agreed; (you) can in I, however, draw before
vole member received.
1 he day following a cipher dispatch was
sent from Coyle to Havemeyer, of which the
following is a translation :
Henry Hazemeyer, 15 Went SettrUeenth Street,
My hope small. Votes about as reported
yesterday. Africa (probably McLin) satisfied
by tSavana (probably Cowgill), and fear thai
America (Drew) understands U. Nothine
but cash will avail.
Answer my first of to-
day at once.
Tuomas Cor lb.
Marble telegraphed on the same day in
cipher :
TALLAHASSEE, Dec. 2. TALLA., Dec. 2.
Colonel Pelton, 15 Gramercy Park:
Have just received a proposition to hand
over at any hour required Tilden dHcbiou of
Hoard and certificate of (iovernor for Sf-OO,
An agreement had already been made with
Woolley at a quarter of the figure and the
answer to Marble's proposition, therefore was:
Dispatch here. Proposition too high."
Woolley heard of these dispatches from
his coconspirators on the same day, and tele:
graphed Havemeyer to "select some one io
whom you have more confidence that you ev
idently have in Wooley." The answer, date.d
December 3d, was that "all here have perfect
confidence in you," with the assurance that
"no other has power and all application de
cliued, and the instruction to "stay and do
what you telegraphed you could do." Next
day these two dispatches went forward in
Co.'. W T Pelton, No. 15, Gramercy Park .
Proposition received cither giving vote of
Itepuulican or Hoard, or his concurrence in
court action preventing electoral vote from
being cast, for half hundred best United
Henry Havemeyer, 15 Wett Seventeenth Street'
Mew xork :
- May Woolley give hundred thousand do!
lars less half for Tilden additional' Board
member? Lieutenant. VWoli.kt
In these dispatches Marble and Woolley
put the price at the same figure $50,000. To
Woolley was sent this answer in cipher.
TALLAHASSEE, Dec. 4. N. Y., Dec. 4 .
C. W. Woolley, Tallahassee, Fla. :
See Marble and act in conjunction with
him. xou must coincide, or you will funin
telligible each other. Have telegraphed him
consult you. Time important. Divided
counsels may lose all.
Woolley rushed to Marble and found him
puzzling over a cipher dispatch which could
not be undtrdtood because some of the words
had been dropped either in translating into
cipher or in transmission, over the wires.
Moments were precious, for the Board was in
session and its decision ready to be made. A
dispatch of inquiry was sent to New York and
the corrected cipher returned, of which the
following is the translation :
Dec. 4.
Manton Marble Tallahassee, Fla:
. Telegram here. Proposition accepted if
one only once, uetter consult . witu wool
ley and act in concert- You can trust him
Time very important and there should be no
divided councils.
' Time vat important, and the delay over the
blundered telegram was fatal. The next dis
patch from Woolley to Havemeyer despair
ingly said : "Power received too late," and
Marble telegraphed Pelton to "Tell Tilden to
saddle Blackstone" that is, to resort to legal
devices. The discomfited conspirators re
turned to New York to join their "coparcen
ers" of 15 Gramercy . Park in shrieking
"Fraud." The publication of their secret
correspondence proves that the cry was not
without basis, and that the greatest fraud of
the age is Samuel J. Tilden.
Advices from New Zealand report the kill
lag and eating of five Wesleyan missionaries
by the bush native cannibals near the Malleoli
coast. The coast natives and traders killed
eighty of the cannibals in retaliation.

the charge of 'murdering Mary' Stannard by
the verdict of the 'jury, bas' been again ar
rested The -post-mortem examination proved
the presence of arsenic in tlie girl's stomach,
and the arsenic left in Hayden's barn was
missing. Other new evidence of his guilt has
been discovered.
Make Childhood Sweet.
Wait not till the little hands are at rest
' Ere you fill them full of flowers;
Wait not for the crowning tuberose
' To make sweet the last sad hours;
But while in the busy household band.
Your darlings still need your guiding hand,
Oh, fill their lives with sweetness!
Wait not till the little hearts are still,
For the loving look and phrase;
But while you gently chide a fault
The good deed kindly praise.
The word you would speak beside the bier
Falls sweeter far on the living ear;
. Oh, fill young lives with sweetness.
Ah! what are kisses on clay cold lips
: To the rosy mouth we press,
When our wee one flies to the mother's arms,
For love's tenderest caress?
Let never a worldly bauble keep
Your heart form the joy each day should reap,
' Circlitg young lives with sweetness.
Give thanks each morn for the sturdy boys,
Give thanks for the fairly girls;
With a dower of wealth like ihiB at home,
Would you nfle the earth for pearls?
Wait not for death to gem love's crown.
But daily shower life's blessing down.
And fill young hearts with sweetness.
Remember the homes where the light has fled,
Where the rose has faded awav;
And the love that glows in youthful hearts,
Ou, cherish it while vou may!
And make your home a garden of flowers.
Where joy shall bloom tnrougn cn'.iuuooas
And fiill lives with sweetness.

Good bye, Butler!
Mr. Kearney had better go West.

he didu t.
Fiat of the October elections : Let there be
honest money.
Ex-Presidential candidates : Tilden, Thur
man and Hendricks.
Poor Thurman ! He crowded Hendricks off
the stage and then tumbled after him.
The Republican party has always won
when it stood bravely for honest money, and
it always will i j.
The Greenback wave is goiug back with a
picturesque collection of damaged statesmen
in its watery embrace.
. The "Ohio idea" has cone under once
more, pulling with it as usual a few new vic
tims. Its power for evil is about spent.
Governor McClellan ponders over the mcl
ancholy fate of Tilden and Thurman, and
softly murmurs, "One by ouethe roses fade-
A month of hard, enthusiastic work ought
to snatch the next .Congress from the grasp
of strikers and tramps, and put it in the
hands of the Republican party. Heave all!
Tilden vanishes under a deluge of cipher
dispatches; Thurman and Hendricks disap
pear under the retreating Greenback wave,
and Bayard and Hancock loom- This is the
Democratic National outlook to day.
Sayler, which he was a chronic candidate
for Speaker, absorbed the 'Ohio idea' com
pletely for the first time in this campaign, and
Sayler is among the slain- This is a dread
fully fatal year for waek-backed statesmen.
Oh Mr. Samuel Cox, don't you wish you
could reverse yourself and resume your ludg.
ment mow? The days of the soft-money
demagogue are numbered, and the road to the
Speaker's chair is not over greenbacks and
through National dishonor. You have, not to
put too fine a point on it, slipped up again.
If Mr. Tilden was entirely ignorant of what
the coparceners were up to, who was respon
sible for the delay which made the attempts
to buy the Presidency a few hours too late ?
Perhaps the guileless old gentleman whose
favorite observation is, "l will see you later,
and who telegraghed so often to Mr. Hewitt
at Washington, to "procrastinate," was not
the stumbling block which always intervened
at a critical moment, but it looks as if some
"procrastinator" or other was.
In order to comprehend the full significance
of the Ohio victory it must lie .remembered
that the "Ohio idea" is the sum and substance
of Greenbackisin. It means repeal of the Re
sumption Act, substitution of Greenbacks for
National Hanks notes, and the abolition of the
National banks. That whs the direct issue of
the Ohio campaign. Its disastrous defeat has
only one meaning, that the "Ohio idea" is re
pudiated where it was born and where it was
best understood-

back movement bad the samecandi
ditte it will be found that the Green
backers controlled the selection. When
the candidate accepted by the two
parties or the two wings of the party
was originally a Greenbacker, the
Democrats concurred. Again an again
they accepted a Greenback candidate
and made him their, own. In no in
stance, however, did the Green backers
place upon their ticket a candidate wno
had already been nominated by the
Democrats as a Democrat. Carry for
ward this examination of the relations
borne bv the two partioa, each to the
other, and the superiority of the Green-
backers over the Democrats, as regards
integrity, will be apparent at every
utaee. We reoeat. therefore, that to
judge aright of the strength displayed
by the enemies oi souna nnance on
Tuesday, the Democratic vote must be
added to the separate Greenback
vote. Any bargaining with
Greenbackers to which Republicans
have been parties in connection with
these elections has, we believe, been
confined to West Virginia. In the
three other States the Republican
advance has been as conspicuous as the
Democrat c surrender. lb is
improvement and consolidation of the
Uepunilcan party, on grou no superior
to nearly all of ill platforms, constitute
one of its most substantial gains. The
winning or losing of a district here or
there is of less importance than the
temper In which it waged the fight,
and the extent to which events have
pledged 1(3 future.
[New York World, Dem.]
Both sides have lost and gained.
Thanks to Mr. Schurz's speech, which
affected the German vote, and to the
differences of the Hayes and anti-Ad
ministration Republicans, Ohio has
gone Republican on the State ticket,
the situation recalling strikingly that
in October, 1875, when Allen was
beaten on a soft-money platform, the
State being left debatable ground and
a solt-money Presidential candidate's
chances being Impaired. Hie National
strength has increased somewhat, but
not aufliciently to warrant any ono in
bellevlnir that it Is to take a prominent
party In the contest of 1880 or hold the
balance cf power between the existing
parties. The Congressional vote has
been so complicated by a number of
side Issues that it can hardly be accept,
ed as a particular truthful index to the
condition and sentiment of parties.
The State itself will remain to be
fought for la 1879 and 1880, the Repub
licanrt having a slight advantage, but
not enough to remove it from the lift
of commonweulths whose political
complexion can ba predicted with cer
tainty in advance.
Taking the siturttion"by anj large,"
therefore, the Democrats have no cause
to be displeased witn tne results oi
Tuesday's work. They made caiua in
the directions where the light was real

ably their position for 1SS0. And same
of them gained healthful experience

Two grand victories have been achla

The greatest was a victory over their
own timidity and weakness on finan'

for the right. The other victory, over

or Greenback force, naturally followed,

The Planets in October.
Providence Journal.
Saturn will retain during the month
the pre eminence of being the most in
teresting planet among the brother
hood. Having so recently passed his
opposition uith the sun, he is still
nearly iu his brightest phase, and is
also very favorably situated for obser
vation. He rises now about five o'clock
in the afternoon, aud reaches the me
ridian at eleven. At the close of the
mouth he will not rise far from three
o'clock. He is therefore visible
throughout the whole night, and is
readily recognized in the Eastern sky
soon us it is dark enough for the
bturs to appear, by his steady light and
the absence of other stars in his imme
diate vicinity.
Jupiter remains during the month an
evening star, and the most brilliant
object among the myriau stars that
stud the sky, although he has passed
beyoud the best position for observa
tion. He reaches, the meridian about
o'clock, and sets just before midnight.
At the end of the month he will set
about teu o'clock.
Venus still leads the morning stars,
and is fast approaching the suu. She
rises now about half-past four, a little
more than au hour before sunrise. At

Jakie on Watermelon Pickle.
Old lady Jones borrowed Mrs.Brown's
recipe for making watermelon pickle
the other day, and, being hard of hear
ing, and as she couldn't see to read it
well she got her grandson, Jakie, to
read it for her. Jakie took the paper,
like a dutiful child, and, holding it up
side down, commenced.
'Take a green watermelon '
'Why, Jakie, ain't you mistaken? I
thought the melon must be ripe.'
'O, wat's the matter wid you? Jew
ever see a watermelon that wasn't
'Cut the melon into four haves '
'But there ain't only two halves to
anything. I don't believe you are
reading that right, Jakie.'
'Well, don't have to. But anyhow
that's what the reseet says. Then soak
the watermelon in a pint cup '
'O, dear me! how iu the world can
you put a watermelon iu a pint eup?' '
'Well, I ain't here to tell you the
whereases and the howfores. I'm just
rending the f.tcts,aud you can put them
in the philosophy to suit your taste.
After soakiug the melon, put it in a
skillet and fry it for four days.'
I wonder if Mrs. Brown sent m
such a receipt as that?' said the old
lady; but Jakie kept on:
'lhea put the watermelon in a quart
bowl and pour over it a gallon of vine
gar, taking care not the spill the vine
gar' 'I'd just like to know how you can
pour a gallon into a quart without
spilliug any oi" it?' But Jakie con
