tho ticket containing Mi namo is not

not entitled to n place among
the Demccratlc nominees; and, being
there, is calculated to decolvo voters to

Msiuurclc vs. Vou Arnim.
New York Herald.
It is generally known tnt soon ofter
tho departure ot Count Arnim from l'ari
tbo Berlin foroign office asked him to ro
ttoro certain ppor which were mining
from ihu iirculvoi. Count Arnim du.
clared that a, portion or thuio papers wero
his pcr.oanl property, whicu iio wouU
not burrendorj another portion, however,
ho returned to tho archives. Arnnrn
urmble to say anything ubout tho missing
of the remainder of tuo papers. As tho
I'jnrcu 01 too urcnives wnicn resulfsd In
tho discovery that tbo pipers wero miss
ing was only instituted a few weeks aitor
Arnim's departure tho poiilbllity pre
sented Itself that thetu papers hnrttnoan
white been abttrated, in ono way or
another, from tho archives of tholegution.
The consequence was h vlolont lottor-war
between Bismarck and Arnim,
Bismarck protondoj lo Ilnd a moaning
In overy ono of Armln's reportf, which tb'o
latter novor Intendod to convwy, and round
thus ft convenient pretext for roicatedIy
rcbukulng him in an exceedingly harsh
manner. Ho was thus cutilv onabled to
rcproacn Arnlm with having pursued u
jwlicy diaront from that of tbo chincni
lor ot tbo emplro. It will ha interesting
to Icirn tbo urouuds on which this m.
proaoh can bo baeoi. It appears that Bit-
marck was nrrald that tho hostllo letters
which had passed botweon him nnd Ar
nlm might bo published, and thero was
perhaps somojustidcatlon for this belief,
Tho co rispondencowcu d bavo clearly do
monstraioa to tho wbolo world how
marck really acted in this matter, anitw.
tho strangely colored reports in regard to
tnlscorrospcndonco oauio to reach tho
ouiperor. It It just this part of tho cor
rcspondence which Armin refutes to de
liver, no is tlrengthonod in this poltlon
by tho rjeueral ussgo which regards docu
ments containing tho ccnturo of superiors
as private lcttors, ovou though It ba con
veyed in an official form, and renilors it
thus a matter of no iuiportmcy whether
iuey do piHtou among tho otuslal UIos
tint unrt ..la I... ,,..! .1. .1 , I
f In rt tl. fl?. '1'6 rf'l,,iro,
them for bit own lustiflcallon.
Of course tbo very naturo of the atrair
forbids 11 public dofonco in tho news
papers, and it must be lii boforo tho
emperor himself us tho rolo and highest
judgo. As tbo emperor, according to
Arnim, had really never leuned from
Biimarck tbo truo facts ol tbo case, every
one can okilly Imagine how highly Bi.
marck mutt prlss tbo document which
Arnlm rofutu to surrender.
They uuablo Arnlm to prove that Bit.
marck rontured him without the tlightost
reason, nnd strengthen tbo suspicion that
tho emperor nevHr rocclved a truthful
account of tho hllalr ai it really tool!
place. Biimarck, it nppeart, is arrald of
Arnim, knowing lull woll, at he does, that
ho has dono him a grevou wrong, and
L'ccauso Arnim is the only man wno has
not only tho courago and capacity, but
also tbo meant to become 11 dangerous foo,
Tbe key to tho presont situation Is simply
that Bismarck tries to annihilate hit ene
my forever. It Is In exact keeping with
Bismarck's charactor to attempt thus to
ruin Arnlm and to rob him of ids reputa
tion, position, civil rights, fortune and
health. If ha doos not succeod In this ho
fears that his own position will bo Jeop
ardlzed, r
Bismarck attacked Arnlm at bis mott
vulnerable point merely through abuse cf
power, a legal Justification of which may
always ba found, and was in this Instance
furnished by the Berlin oity tribunal,
litch has thus bocomo an unconselous
accomplice of Ultmarck. It has been ro
peatedly risked why Arnlm did not pre
vent such open war by simply taking
coplos ot the'docum6nts In question atul
restoring tho nrlglnala under protest to
tbo lorelgn of3ce. The cue, from a legnl
point of view, Is j 1st tb!i tlmt Arnim
rightfully contldfrtjd these papers hi pri
vate property, and, novor thinking for n
moment that tho nttcmpt would nvor be
made to compol' their restoration by a
criml nl prosiMJiitlon, made no copied of
thomn or liml hen ruht to uinHO any, as
his ownnershlp of tho documents might
havo been flrnleJ In the civil suit.
Added to this legal grievance It on ol
actual orcurrono. ntmelr, tho shocking
manner In which Herr llulow profurrtd
tho demand for the documents in question.
llulow i said to havo sulnf-qtiently ox
pressed his nttoiilshmant at Arnim's nor
slstont refuial. at ho cr nl 1 havf ossliv
taken copies and tlir ri turronderrd the
papers. Howoter, llulow ought to ox-
prois no HSlonlihmont at Arnim's rofuttl,

smmppil it not only as aj-illr al alnorin
Ity, li.it alio as 11 iiiocitiu'.n ol that brutal
ity with which ho hid bocomo nccuitomod
to trett hlch and obnox.out ofllcialf.
liulow's letter rendered tbo rurrondor
of tho documonls positively impossible,
unless Arnim wished to ploid guilty
to 1110 commission t rlony
Arntrn had no cauto to aban
don his right to property of bis simply
because tbo foreign office demed lo obtain
it by means of a criminal prosecution.
Ho was deprived of overy decent chance
01 yielding without hi.tnilMli g himself,
DI11017 1 loiier lhronlme-1 him 'ith crlm

Arnim could 011 illy have toon a witness
to the falsity of the clurgci on which this
throat was baled, nnd ovory impartial
spectator must admit that this attempt to
giro tho prosecution nny but its real
political and personal coloring is vohl of
all justice. Only a knowledgo of all the
political motives of Arnim's enemies, and
moro especially of theso of l'rinco Bis
marck, who wil'l ttanu behind the nltorney
general and Influence tbo tribunal, could
enablo ono to form a correct opinion of
tho case of Count Arnim.
