How the Story About It a Connected With
Mr. lllalne'it Marriage Originated.
From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat
P.FJ: Worth, Texas. Sept. 3.-John
Kandall one of th stanehest Democrats
U Bosque couity, lifiig at Meriiian,
was a tuiji iQ the college at George--town,
Ky., when James G. Blaiae tauijht
Were, lie was casually overheard a day
or two ajro to gay he knew the charges
against filaine to be untrue, and the fact
coning to the kaowledge of the repre
eeatatiye of the Globe-Democrat he toek
the train this morning and at Meridian
fonad Randall In eentersation with Col.
William Flourney, of Waco, on the sub
ject. Randall says ProfesHor Johnston
was principal of the school, and that
Blaiae and Miss Stanwood were teachers.
Blaine la the male school and Miss Stan
wood in the female school. Johnston
became embarrassed financially, and the
directors found fault with the manage
ment, several aerimenious discussions
arising between Johnston and one of
the directors, who is now dead. On one
occasion this director came to the school,
and after words with Johnston who
was much the older and physically weak
er man than the director attacked him,
when Blaine, who heard the quarrel,
came into the school room, and, up
braiding the director for his cowardice,
administered a sound thrashing, driving
him from the bnilding.
THE SHOT GUN EPISODE.
The director went off, but returned
shortly with a doable-barreled shotgun,
avowing that be would killyounr Blaine.
Several pupils saw him coming, a,nd no
tified Blaine, who had to run around the
bnilding and in and cut of the rooms to
avoid being shot, when three of the boys
got behind the director, disarmed him,
and with the aid of several others gave
the director a second thrashing.
Randall says Blaine's attentions to
Misa Stanwood were open and honorable,
and that the pupils of both knew the af
fection existed, the boys teasing Blaine
about it, and that it was known for
weeks beforehand that they were to be
married. No breath of scandal had been
heard. The scholars all understood that
when the sessien was over the couple
would be married, and as it had been
determined to end the session on the
day ef the shotgun episode, on the after
noon of the same day James G. Blaiae
and Miss Stanwood were quietly mar
ried, bade good-bye to their scholars, and
HOW THE STORY STARTED. '
A worthless fellow named Hawkins
saw the shotgun business and heard of
the marriage, so put the two together,
telling a cock-and-bull story of how Miss
Stanwcod's father had made Blaine
marry his daughter.
Randall state farther that he knows
that Mr. Stanwood had been dead over
three years before the time of this wo
Some of the above faets came to the
knowledge of Nim Norton, of Dallas, a
son of Hon. A. B. Norton, and knowing
that J. II. Johnston, clerk for the con
tractor erecting the Federal building at
Dallas, was a son of Professor Johnston,
and was in a position to know the facts,
went to him for then, but Johnston, not
wishing to be a witness in the Indianap
olis libel suit, did not have anything to
say, and did not want the public to know
that he knew of the circumstances.
Young Norton is now in Houstin. a dele
gate te the State Republican conven
tion, and informed Deputy United States
Marshal A. N. Woody that on his return
he would visit Randall and get hi? state
ment in fall.
Randall, whe Is a Democrat, and op
posed to Blaine, says, that the charge
made br the Sentinel is infamously
false. When the marriage ceremony
took place the young girls brought flow
ers for Miss St an wood's hair and dress,
and the boys gave the bridal party a
farewell cheer when they bid good-bye
to Kentucky. The shotgnn had nothing
to do with the wedding, and Hawkins'
own conclusions of what he knew noth
ing about formed the basis for the whole
From Chicago Inter Ocean.
It was modest and proper for Mr.
Blaine in discussing the election in his
own atate to lay particular stress upon
protection and say nothing about him
self, but as a matter of great significance
of Monday's work Is the light it throws
upon the feeling toward him in his own
home. Maine has adopted a vote of
confidence by a majority so large as to
be overwhelming. Carl Schurz.is going
abeut the country telling people that
James G. Blaine is a thief for that is
the plain English of his high Dutch
and now Blaine's neighbors come Into
ourt to testify on that very point. The
little city of Augusta, where he lives,
bears off the palm by rolling ip a ma
jority of 252 larger than it ever before
gave to the Republican party. The bet
ter known the stronger he is. To ap
preciate the full force of this home in
dorsement it is necessary to look at the
exaet figures of former years.
Maine had no state election in 1883.
In 1882 the Republicans polled 72,724;
the Democrats, 63,852; the Greenbackers,
1,302, and the - Prohibitionists, 395 a
Kepiblican majority of 7,175, abuut half
the majority of this year, for Mr. Blaine's
own Monday night estimate of 12,000
has risen to 16,000 malority. In 1880,
. out of a tetal vote of 147,845, the Repub
lican candidate for Governor, Davis, re
ceived 73 597. his chief opponeat. Plats
ed. 73.876. The state was lost to the
Republicans four years ago in Septem
ber. It was recevered in Nevember,
General Garfield having a malority of
4,225. The Democrats carried three
counties for nancock in November of
that year, and this time only one. In
1880 the Democrats elected nine bena
tors, this year not a selitary one.
To appreciate the full force ef the Im
mense change effected in Maine, one
mast bear la mind the smallness of the
entire vote of the state. It was In round
numbers 150,000. The gain, comparing
September, 1880, with September, 1884,
was one majerity for every tea votes
THE NORTHERN TRIBUNE SEPTEMBER 18, j84
cast. If this gain were maintained in
the country at large at the November
election, Mr. Blaine's majority would bo
about 1,000,000 larger than that for Gen.
No presidential candidate siaee the
Republic was formed ever received an
indorsement from his own state which
was, all things considered, so remarka
ble as this. Let such men as Franklin
MaeVeagh, Lyman J. Gage, R. A. Keyes,
and . G. Mason reflect fairly upon the
verdict of Maine upon Mr. Blaine. What
ever else those gentlemen may say they
will not deny to Maine rank in the mor
al scale second to no other state in the
Union. Everybody admits that it is a
commonwealth peopled by Intelligent,
conscientious and cool-beaded men. If
there was any suspicion on the part of
his neighbors that Mr. Blaine was cor
rupt or corraptible this election would
have shown it. On the contrary, the
Pine Tree says to the American people:
Whatever you may think of his politics,
James G. Blaine is an honest and pure
man, infinitely beyond cartoon slander
ers and tombstone mutilators.
From the Lansing Republican.
George William Curtis, that Judas Is
cariot of the Chicago convention, seems
to be still in search of "personal purity."
As chairman of the National committee
of "Republicans and Independents" he is
having his secretary flood the country
with type-writer letters, for the purpose
of defeating Mr. Blaine and elevating a
man, covered with charges of gross im
morality, to the highest office within the
gift ef the American people.
The following letter, addressed to Rev.
R. G. Baird, of Lansing, will show the
cowardly manuer in which the "inde
pendent" work is being carried on ; and
the answer will show the spirit of the
replies which are often penned, but
which are never made pnblio by George
William Curtis and his co conspirators:
New York, Aug. 28, 1884.
Dear Sir: Your name has been sug
gested to ns as that of an earnest and
We therefore send you certain docu
ments, which we trust you will read
earefully and weigh dispassionately;
If, after so doing, you agree with us
in thinking that the best interests of
both the Nation and the Republican par
ty demand the defeat of Mr. Blaine, we
shall be glad to place your name en oar
rolls, aad also to receive from you the
names of others to whom you may wish
us to send documents.
Very truly yours,
G. W. Green,
To Rov. R. G. Baird, Lansing, Mich.
Lansing, Sept. 2. 1884.
G. W. Green. Esq.: Your letter of the
28th ult. and accompanying documents
I do claim to be an "earnest" Republi
can, and knowing that James G. Blaiae
was nominated for President by the Re
publican party with the influence of fed
eral officeholders almost solid against
him, I regard it to be the duty of every
Republican to vote for him and use all
honorable means to secure his election.
He shall have my vote and my influence
as far as it goes.
I hope and exaect to see Georcre Wm.
Curtis & Co. most thoroughly defeated
in their attempt to elect a Democrat and
netorions debauchee for President of the
United States, under the absurd pretense
that they are serving the best interests
of the Nation and of the Republican
party. Yours, etc.,
R. G. Baird.

Patrick Egfui fur lilalne.
Patrick Egan, the recently elected
president of the American branch of the
Irish Land League, has addressed a let
ter to the Lincoln, Neb., Democrat, in
reply to some unwarranted strictures
on his political opinions. The. follow
ing is an extract: '
"Before the late Boston convention of
the Irish National League I had as the
result of close obseryation and careful
research made up my mind that there
existed no gemd ground on which .the
Democratic party should hold any mort
gage on my vote because I . kappeaed to
be an Irishman.
"I weighed with care and deliberation
the merits of the two presidential can
dldates, and I came to the conclusion
that, neither as Irishman or an adopted
citizen of America, could Mr. Grover
Cleveland have my support. The case
of Mr. John Devoy, on which you so per
sistantly harp, and which you have again
and again referred to as the only ground
of my opposition to Mr. Cleveland, was
only one of the many objections which I
entertained to that gentlemen. Did, in
deed, consider the treatment meted to
Mr. Devoy of the basest kiad, and strong
evidence of either the hostility or con
tempt of Mr Cleveland for Irishmen of
national opinions, but I objected also to
Mr. Cleveland as the pet candidate of
the London Times, the London Standard
the London Daily TeJegraph, the Lon
don Daily News, the London St. James
Gazette, the London Saturday Review
in fact, of the entire English Press. I
objected to him as the pet caadidate of
Puck and Harper's weekly; as the author
of innumerable vetoes in the Interest of
the great monopolies, aad as a man who
had, as I believed proved himself the
enemy of every just right to the toiling
millions. I objected to Mr. Cleveland
oecause I felt proud of the country of
my adoption, and because I felt that in
the words of the Boston Pilot, a straight
out-and-out Democratic Organ he has
not a single quality to fit him for the
presidency of the United States.
"I had made up my mind to support
Mr. Blaine because, from long observa
tion, I had come to regard him as the
very opposite of all this, as an American
of Americans, a man among men, as an
able statesman fitted by nature, culture
and experience to fill with credit to the
country and to himself the position of
president of this great nation.
