The immigration returns for August
how thai 14,830 immigrants landod in
Canada. Of these 5,805 were passengers
for the United States, leaving 8,941 who
aettled in the Dominion. Since the first
of January 112,512 entered Canada as
Immigrants, 48,275 of whom intended
settling In the United. States, leaving
64,235 who settled in the Dominion.
These figures are below those for the
corresponding period of 1883, when, up
the end of August, 134,834 persons had
landed in Canada. Of these 80,011 set
tled In the country, and 54,820 went to
the States.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer, Demo
cratic, said on Monday of last week: "In
the event of Mr. Cleveland's election, his
daughter will preside at the White
House." This is news! The country has
heard of Mr. Cleveland's son, and of that
son's mother; but, if there's a daughter,
she must still have a different mother in
order to be old enovgh to preside at the
White House. Can it be possible that
the Democratic habit of inventing libels
about candidates for high office is so
strong that the Cleveland Plain Dealer,
in a moment of carelessness, is slander
ing its own party nominee for President?
Detroit Post.
David Harpster, the great wool
grower of Ohio, was interviewed in Chi
cago by a reporter of the Inter Ocean in
regard to the part the wool growers of
his state would take in the Presidential
contest. He said: "There are 93,000
wool growers in Ohio. I should think
that nearly half of them are Democrats.
Last year all the Democratic wool grow
ers voted for Hoadley, and many of the
Republican wool growers. Others of the
Republicans staid at home. This year
the situation is very different. The
wool growers are satisfied with the Re
publican promises on the wool tariff,
and dissatisfied with the Democratic. So
all our Republican sheep raisers will go
to the polls and vote their ticket, and I
think one third of the Democratic wool
growers will vote the same way. .This,
x yon see, will make a very great change
in the vote in Ohio."
Democratic papers and individuals,
realizing the importance the Maine
election would have upon the National
campaign, and knowing that it was sure
tn ba Renublican. in order to break the
force it would have on the Presidential
rAm eaten, were strong la their claim
that the Republican majority,, in order
tn havft anv significance, should not be
less than 20,000, a figure they were san
guine could not be reached, and a figure
that the most sanguine Republican nev
r Maimed. The next dav after the
lection when the state was claimed by
the Republicans by 16,000 majority their
'I told yoa so's" were loud and enthusl
astlc, and they tried to impress every
body that, lacking the 20.000, majority,
the Republicans had no' encouragement
from the result. Even this consolation
is denied them, ftr later returns show
thattha Ronubllcan majority exceeds
20,000, and is still growing.
TnE business of the country, is more
Important than the business of the
Government. Washington may wag
along with bad men In office; bnt bad
business in the land means a lean mar
ket basket. The Democratic party has
already done something to empty the
basket by meddling with, the tariff. , It
will do more if it gets a chance. Its
candidate, its caucus, its leaders are all
Free traders, and there Is not to-day
single prudent man who would not sell
his stock in factory, furnace an stack,
in nine, kiln and vat, if he thought
Groyer Cleveland was to be elected next
November. Such a man knows that
bocU stock stands hisier now thai it
will when that happens. Will II pay
in a business way to Invite a manufact
nring earthquake? Is it good policy to
' set every factory chimney to recking to
flndW whether they could stand plumb
with Republican Protection pulled out
from under the foundation. Philadel

Cold Comfort for the Democrats.
Friday evening Tammany Hall Demo
crats met to hear the hear the report of
the general committee appointed to pre
pare a statement of the position held by
that organization toward the Democrat
ic candidates. The report Is Quite
lengthy and reviews the history of Tam
many from its organization. The re
port acknowledges the great antagonism
among the working classes of New York
against Cleveland and cites as the causes
his vetoing the five eent fare bill of the
elevated railroad, the bill limiting the
hours of labor fer car drivers and con
ductors, the lien law to protect mechan
ics and laborers; aad says:
"We might add and enumerate other
instances, but we have shown sufficient
to have warranted even stronger opposi
tion on oar part to the nominee of the
Democratic party than we made at Chi
cago. "The candidates of the Democratic
party having been nominated in nation
al convention, following the uniform
and unbroken record of our organiza
tion we acquiese in the will of the ma
jority ot the representatives of the pariy
although we believe that will to have
been unwisely expressed. There is but
one other alternative left us-to sever our
connection with the Democratic party.
This we cannot aad will not do."
The Republicans are willing that the
Democrats shall gather all tho comfort
they can out of this endorsement, the
vote of New York will, show that the
"working men who compose the bulk of
the Democratic voters of the
state of New York," are still dis
satisfied with Cleveland and will not
vote for a man that has struck their in
terests so hard by his vetoes in the in
terests of capitalists and monopolists.
Ex-Senator Gradv, rising to protest
against the passage of this resolution
and adoption ot tins address, made a.
long speech. He reviewed the whole po
litical career of Cleveland, and quoted
freely from columns of the Times and
litraki in the past In support of tne po
sition he (Grady) had now taken. In the
course of hi speech Mr. urady said:
Neither in the nomination of the ticket
nor in the method by which it was
brought about is there tho slightest
claim upon the great body of the Demo
cratie voters for its support. The great
majority of the delegates to the conven
tion which named Cleveland as their
first choice represented Republican eon
stituencies. A number of delegates
who openly and earnestly opposed his
nomination were recorded, in spite of
all their protest, as favorable to his can
didacy. Every influence that could be
employed or engineered by the monopo
lists, who have secured control -of the
party management, was exerted to make
him the candidate, aid as you well
know, delegates who left their homes
loud in their professions, hostile to his
candidacy, as Inviting eertain defeat to
the party, gave evidence soon alter their
arrival at Chicago of a change of heart,
which only the most simple and chari
table havo ascribed to pure and worthy
motives. The expressed design of tho
men who urged his nomination was to
conciliate disgruntled Republicans, not
to pleaie Democrats, f reserving to my
self tho supreme right of a citizen of ex
ercising the act of sovereignty, I decline
to prostitute my prerogative to the pur
poses of the party managers. Suffrage
has been bestowed on ne by the Institu
tions of my country that it may bo exer
cisod for the country's welfare. To the
prosperity and benefit of this land I ded
icate it. and I cannot reconcile, without
doseeratioi. anv dispositon of it that
would result in the support of a politi
cal nondescript, clothed in the outward
garb of a Democrat, ignorant or the car
dinal principles of the political faith
which he assimes to profess, and accept
ing from Democrats their votes that ho
mav delight Republitans and Indepsnd
ents Ibv the manner in which he will
exercise the powers conferred upon him
bv a betraved and delnded party. But
mv vote will not be lost to the Democ
racv. It will be cast for a candidate
whoso followers . will be numbered , by
hundreds of thousands, whoso motives
caanot be impugned, for their action
can be inspired by no selfish hopes of
reward. It will be registered for the
principles which tho Demoeratio party
professed when it held tho popular con
fidence, and for abandoning which, they
lost the popular support. It will be giv
en for a candidate who has no hope of
election and no desire for tho sordid ben
efits of political preferment, but who
braves fatigue, abuse and pecuniary
loss, that true Democrats may find his
candidacy channel through which
they ma express their sentiments.
I turn my back on a Democratic party
captured aid betrayed by a know-nothing
demagogue, hungry for place and
spoils, and join apuro Democracy which
struggles for the principles which tho
party organizaatlon has abandoned. I
denounce a candidate whose oily merit
Is Ills obscurity, that I may follow a
statesman whose life has made glorious
the history of his country. I decline to
bow down before a graven image because
I prefer to follow tho teachings of an
apostle of the true political faith, pre
ferring shining ability to dull mediocri
rity, a true reformer to a sham reformer,
a statesman to a hangman, an illustri
ous citizen to a political adventurer. I
decline to support Grover Cleveland for
tho Presidency, and hero and now, in the
presence of a leader whom I have always
regarded as nay political sponsor, in tho
midst of brethren and comrades with
whom I have shared many a hard fought
political field, and before the eyes of all
the country, to whom I have this night
laia bare my motives ana my purposes.
I declare myself in favor ot Benjamin F.
Butler, the soldier, jurist, statesman,
and I appeal to time for my vindication.
Grady's speech occupied an hour in de-
liveiy. He was obliged to make several
pauses to allow the audience to give ex
pression to its approval of his ideas.

private secretary certifies that Ex-Sher
iff Cleveland is a good free-trader. Ho
There is no donbt of Mr. Cleveland's
position, and he is thoroughly in earn
est in the cause of revenue reform as Is
his friend Mr. Dorsheimer. In the con
test in Congress last winter ho stood
with Carlisle and Morrison, and against
Randall. It is within my personal
knowledge that he wrote letters to New
York members of Congress urging them
io vote wun xur. Morrison, Doin on me
question of consideration and on the mo
tion to strike out tho enacting clause of
tho Morrison bill. At least one vote,
perhaps more, was gained for the bill by
these letters.
A Voucher of Intellectual Capacity.

to appreciate the admirable clearness,

favorable judgment will not be pro
nounced by any man who knows merit
when he sees it, and who dees not allow
his personal predilections to stifle or
distort the utterance of honest criticism.
Whatever may bo the out-come of the
author's practical expectations he can
look back with feelings of unmixed sat
isfaction on this abiding memorial of
talents well applied. Rarely, indeed,
has any party been able to present on
behalf of its candidate for tho presiden
tial office so impressive a voucher of in
tellectual capacity.
