IS rUBUailKD WKKKI.Y MY JOHN H. GKAB1LL. WOODBTOCK, viKt'.iMA. FRIDAY, SEPT. 2, 1808. The Democratic Party. IK II K I.BAIlkl.6 AK?, AS Kilt L1S1I AS i ii ii wxa> in lbf>6, bava?T IS CURTAIN. The New Orlsans Picayune, one of the ?blest and most conservative den ocratic journals south of the Tot? inac river, in a leading editorial headed '-As to the National Demo? cratic Party," ?ays: "When the denn ?ratic party allied ita.lt'with the populists and other Western soeialists, its leaders songhl to cut themselves loose Horn the Ksstcrn democracy, and they raised the cry that they did not need New York and New Jersey to cany the eountry. "The overwhelming defent suffered by th? mongrel sonibination should have taught, and doubtless did tench, some important leSBOMm party poli? tics, aud unies? the democratic lead? er? are bent on tha cemplete and final desiruction ol their party, they will cease the wild and radical as? sault? upon th? natioual money stan? dard snd public credit 'and private properly, which made lhe Staple of their doctrint? in the last national canvass. ?'The populists have on a.l sides an? nounced their detirmination to make no more alliances with the democrats. and the other socialists are too few iu number snd too radical in their notions to secure the favor of any but crank? and radicals oftl e most extreme ???it. The ?democrats of the old and conservative type who were driven from the ranks of their party by tha wild plunge it mad? into popu? lism srs still democrats. "The problem for the democratic leader? is to take msBSUBBS to unite the party on some baais of principle where all can stand. X>? good can come of trying to foros particular ideas about money on anybody. Tbe money question is a business matter that must be and w ill be ?eltlnd by the graat commercial countries en? gaged in international tiaiiic, and legislation cannot change what com marcial usage enacts. All ?socialistic sttacks on public und private prop erty can only an?! in precipitating a bloody conflict between those who havesomsthing and ihose who want to seize upon it. Great political parties must be based on principles national, public and general. Social. i?m, whil it pretends to regard only the good of the whole population, is really a struggle by self-appointed leaders to advance and aggrandize themselves at the expense of those who work and earn Of have luid up soniethiug as the result of their tabor and intelligence. "Democracy's business is to preaarve the republic as a republic, where all proper personal and property lights are protected by a constitution ami laws. When democracy does this, it lias performed a high duty. "If thire is to be a veal national democratic party, its leaders must as? semble all the elements and force? that will respond to the call of a real democracy. The vote of New York is just as necessary as ever it was, The foolish notion about the Wist is too narrow for the basis of a national pm ty. New York this fall is going to elect a Governor,lieatenant,governor secre? tary of State, comptroller, treasurer, attorney-general. State engineer and surveyor,nici?ibers of the Legislature and member? of Congress. It is believ? ed by those who have reason t?> luil?! such a belief that the democrat? have a fair chance to win if silver is not made a feature in the campaign, and if State issues and a*aod govertaent are brought to the ti-.mt. Govctmor Black's adinii ist ration Im? not been satisfactory. The canal scandal, in which public funds to the amount of of ?several million dollars are invoke.I and the election law known as tbe "Black force bill," which wasablun der, to say the least, give the demo? crats an opportunity to overthrow the present administration and to re? gain the control of the State. With clean candi'lates, win? are also men of ability in whom the people have con. fjdence, they may beable to defeat the j republicans. "The war with Spain ami its out? come are going to exert a profound influence on the national political sit- : nation. If the democratic leaders are wise in their generalion, they may- j reunite the party. If they are as fool iab m they were in 1896, they may as wall dig tbeir political graves." The deaths hi our army seem to be on tha increase, since peace has been declared. Some attribute this state of affairs to the fact that we began the war before we were pre Thomas B.

Wiisbiii?/t"ii l'???i. Ansas! *!-'? At Is o'clock on Tuesday eveniuj 88, Mr, Thomas Beall Richey, i \Yo("l?t?ick, \'?.. walked out of t! Howard House, coiner of Penua* vania avenue and Sixth street, an irom that moment has never l.cc beard of. He disappeared as utte; ly as if some tremendous rataclysi bad engulfed him. Hewn? cancele sa ????uipletely a? though a oonvulsic of nature had buried him. Nothin more mysterious bas ever occurred i Washington. A man in the prime i life, a prospero is merchant, a devote husband, a sincere Christian, sober.? high repute and influential family col ?sections, Thomas Beeil Hichey pan ed from the Howard House into an oecnltation as absolute as death ils It Tint such a thing could happen i: the very hear! of Washington, at ai hour when the whole city was awak and under circumstances of pcrtcc public order and trampiillily. is a Bstoanding as any romance ever con cuete?! by GaborianorDuBoisgobey Indeed, it beggars ?rornanceand takei rank witb tin ?se appaulling facia whid prove to us lu.w much stranger than all imaginable ?action i? tbe siinj.lt truth. There arc details and collaterals which go to intensify the mystery, Mr. Hichey stopped over in Wash ingtoii for tlie purpose oflocating or tracing his baggage, which bad gone astray. He had set out lioiu Nee York, where he bail bSBB purcbaaing s stock of gooda, leaving hitwifs to pay a brief \i?ii to her family, but on teaching the Capital found tbat bis trunk was miasing, On thai aoconnl he j?ut up at the Howard Houee, awaiting the result of a telegram to his brotlier-in-la* in New York, ?and meanwhile, wrote to his niece in Woodstock, Bdvmng her of his rletcn tion. In the note he explained that he was watting \':>r bis truiik, and ' would lake the train for home a? BOOA as it turned uj?. He close?! bis nit-s? age by saying it was so warm that be could not sleep m his room, and tb:M he inteiideil taking a title on tin electric cars, probably into the sub? urbs, with a view to enjoying the fresh air while the city ended off. The remarkable la? i In ihn 001 i? that .'lulu* the letter its? II was in Mr, Riuhey'a well-known handwrit ing, ami exhibited not the iliglitesi sign of physical or mental purturbn tion, the envelope was addressed iu iphy totally unfamilar to every cue el'Mr. Ridley's friends aud rela? tive?. The hotel stationery was not used. There was nothing to indicate the locality from which ii was lent, l?ut the ?nist office brand on 1 lit* out? side show fil that it had been taken up ?omewhere in Washington at 2:30 a m. Wednesday morning. The |?ie sumption is, therefore, tlmt Mr. Kichey ??rule the letter after leaving tlie hotel possibly several hours nf torward?and thai aoniooneiu whose company he then wsa undertook t" address and mail it. Another car eiimatance tending to complicate the! mystery is that inquiry lubaequentlj made a! the Pennsylvania depot show tul that the trunk had reached time next day, (?) that the check had been presented and tlie property removed. A telegram was received at the hotel alter Mr. Richey'a disappearance. It was from l?is brother-in-law in New Vork,saying that the trunk bad been fowarded from the Courtland street furry office, and it was opened by one ot'tlie lost man's brothers. The tele? gram gave the number of the check, and ?" ii was fin easy matter to ascer? tain that ii had been takenupatthe depot. It is also a logical cone usion tbal the person presenting the check must have got it from Mr. Richey. C.uitl it have been the same limn win? addressed the letter which was stamped 2:30 ?i, in., Alignai 24, and sent to Woodstock? Altogether this strike! nsasone of the most remarkable episodes in the history of Washington. Considering all the circumstances?the lime, the place, (he well-known character of the man, everything?it constitutes a? profound and '?erplcxinj* a as ever figured in song or story. Mr. Riulit-y disapeared on the night of Tuesday, the 2?td? eight days ago? and up to a late hour last night not of liim, howe* er faint, had been developed, Hi? friends have visited the hospitals, th ; ti .11?. even the morgue. S ol ? has Keen thrown upon the case, S m i secrecy have thrown over it an impenetrable cloak. We know only thai Mr. Riche} haa been spirited away, and ???? naturally a?k ourselves whether, if auch a thing can happen to one, it may not, with equal facility, happen to another.
