The Charges Wholly
Disproved.
Citlzeii of Buffalo Effectually
Nail the Liei Told About
Governor Cleveland.
Saveral members of the Independ
ent Republican party, resident in
Buffalo, recently determined to
thoroughly investigate the charges
made against Governor Cleveland
and so extensively circulated by the
Blaine managers. Thoy made this
investigation,not as membors of the
Independent Republican party but
as citizens of Buffalo who wished to
forever set at rest th slanders that
had been uttered against the man
they had raised to the highest of
fice in their gift, tho mayoralty of
their city. The result of . their
labor is given in the following ad
dress, which they yesterday made
public :

rnposed on us by circumstances to
examine these stories in detail and
to make a formal statement, of the
results. So such examination would
have been necessary to satisfy our
selves; but it was due te those who
have read the charges against ItOv
ernor Cleveland wituout Knowing
personally his general character and
reputation in this community, ana
without knowing either th position
or tho means of information of those
who have made tho charges, that
wo should not put forth a mere
general statement without a pres
t'ious investigation. -
Yte have therofore, through a
committee appointed from our num
ber for that purpose, carefully and
deliberately made such an - in

every available means to ascertain

Tho two clergymen whose pro

Duke of Wellington dropped dead

of heart disease. He went to Brigh

fearing an attack of illness decided
to return home. When his valet

feel as if it were time for me to write
to some one ' who will believe wh'tt I
write. I have heen far some time in
tha atmosphere of certain success s
that I have been sure that I should Hit
same the duties of tbe high office for
which I have been named. I have tried
bard in the light of this fact to properly
appreciate the responsibilities that shall
rest upon me, and they, are - mnch, too-
much, underestimated. But the tbougnt
that has troubled me is. can I well per
form my duties and in such a manner as
to da some good to the people of the
State? I know there is ' room - for ' it;'
and I know that I au honest and sin
cere in my desire, to do well ; but the
question is whether I know enough to
accomplish what 1 desire. The social
life which awaits me has also been a
I subject of much anxious thought t I
have a notion that I can regulate that
very much as I desire, and, if I can. I
shall spend very little of ray time ia the
purely ornamental part ef the office. In
point of fact, T wilt tell you fir?t of all
others, the policy I intend te adapt, and
that is to make a business engagement
between the peeple ot the State and
myself, iu which tbe obligation an my
eideisto perform tbe duties assigned
me with an eye single to the interests
of any employers.- - I shall have no idea
of re-election, or of any higher politi
cal preferment in my head, but be very
thankful ahd happy if I can well serve
oae term as the people's Governor. Do
you know that if mother were 'alive I
should feel so much safer 7 I have
always thought that her prayers had
much te do with my success. I shall
expect you all to help' me in that way.'

' GROVER CLEVELAND.
The private letters of prominent
men often disclose their vanity, self
ishness and littleness. But this let
ter from Cleveland shows that self
is lost and forgotten in contemplat
ing his grave responsibilities and
how to discharge his duties. This
private letter, written to a brother,
full of meekness and humility, and
even sad and shrinking in discuss
ing the duties imposod on him, fur
nishes the most conclusive : reasons
why he should be made President
of the United States. , The people
will not fear to trust a man capable
of uttering such thoughtful words.
Tho noble and manly sentiments
expressed, the spirit of pure and
lofty patriotism which inspires ev
cry line and breathes in every sen

to a few questions in, regard, to the
many reports ot his experience in

that so far as the statements of can

the kind had ever come to his no

closely to his quarters under a tent,
absolutely so physically prostrated
as to bo unable to .leave, hia. pouch

It was under these circumstances
that this man Henry, who had ship

THE STZE OF TUB NOVEMBER
. VOTE.
N. X Tribune, Aug. 13. ... ,
The probable vote for .the Presi-
deney in November next . will be
very close on ten and a half mil
lions, and may exceed that number.
The vote in 1880, using round fig
ures, was 9,220,000 in a total popu
lation of 40,371,000, and in a male
population of the voting ago report
ed at roundly 12,571,000 for the
. J .... t
oft.r.AKtatM will h. i n .Nnvem hfir..43l : r..m ..Coventry to Chester on
next, above 56,000,000, in the eight
Territories and the District, of Co
lumbia very nearly a million, mak
ing for the whole country a grand
total of fully 57,000,000. These lat
ter figures are arrived at by. calcu
lating the natural increase of our
population through tho excess of
births over deaths at 2. per-cent a
year. ; , To this must be added , the
immigration. Now if a population
of 49,371,000 in tho States includes
a voting population of 12,571,000, a
populatioa of 56,000,000 contains a
voting population of nearly 14,2S0,
000, or that number of men posses
sing the legal age for voting.
,Tn 1880 there were 9,220,000. bal
lots cast by a voting, population . of
12,571,000. . If the people vote at
the same ratio in November, the to
tal number of ballots is likely to, be
10,473,000. A comparison with the
Presidential, vote of 1876 produces
substantially the same results, if tho
population of the States in that year
is assumed ; at 44,870,000. For if
that number cast 8,413,000 ballots,
a population of 56,000,000 is likely
to cast about ten and a half million
.votes; and as the State of .New
York in 1880 cast 1,105,000 ballots
in a total for the country of 9,220,
000, it is not improbable that it will
cast 1,250,000 ballots in the proba
ble total of 10,500,000 which may
be expected in November. ,
These gigantic figures may well
fill one with awe. . ,

A LEAP-YEAR LEGEND.
There was a party acros?,"the

close she slipped to his side and
sweetly asked :
- "Going home by yourself, Char
lie?' ; -"Guess
so," he said.
"Would you like some one to see
you home?"
"Depends on who it is."
His answers were short and
crusty. Many a ono would have
been disheartened, but Lucy wa
not of that kind. She still persever
ed. "Some young lady, I mean."
''Depends on wh the young lady
is, said the brute
"Soma one about my sizo,"

"Th ere are several here about
your size."
"There's only one "exactly my
size." .
"See here, Lucy," said Charles.
j "if you want to take me homo you
I may."
"Oh," she replied, "I've no par
ticular desire to take you home, but
as I was going, I thought you "
He interrupted with an" All right,"
and together they left. . He was
leaning on her arm, and silently
they meanderod over the frozen
streets. They stopped at his door.
He invited her in.
"No, Charlie, I won't go in, but I
want to tell you something."
By the light of the street lamp
on the corner Charlie's face was
seen -to grow pale as she continued :
"I am abundantly able to support
a husband. I have a bank account
of a good size. I love you, Charlie,
and can give you a. good home.
Will you bo mine, dearest? "
" Lucy," gasped the brute, " you
have no idea what it takes to sup
port a husband "
She-interrupted him.
" Darling, if it should be neces
sary I would , work from morning
until night, and even take in wash
ing and sewing ; 3-ou shall want for
nothing. - Only say 3-ou will be
mine."
"No, Lucy; it cannot be. I
shall always love j-ou as a brother,
watch over your pathway through
life, and should you stand in need
of advice or assistance, you oan rely
on my willingness to assist you; but
I can never marry you."
" Then you refuse me?"
"Yes."

SMOKE FOR
DIPII-
TIIERIA.
Ruth Lockwood, the nine year
bid child of Thomas Lockwood, a
compositor in the Times office, he
came violently ill with diphtheria
on Tuesday night. She was so
weak that it was deemod danger
ous to tr3 tracheotomy, or cutting
open the windpipe. On Thursday
Dr. Nicholas, of No. 117 West Wash
ington place, who was attending
her, received a copy of the Paris
Figaro, which contained a report
made to the French Academy of
Medicine by Dr. Delthil. Dr.
Delthil Raid that tho vapors of li
quid tar and turpentuio would dis
solve the fibrinous exudations which
choke up the throat in croup and
diphtheria. Dr. Delthil's process
was described. He pours equal
parts of turpentine and liquid tar
into a tin pan or cup and sets fire
to the mixture. A dense ie;inous
smoke arises, which obscures tho
air of the. room. "Tho patient,"
Dr. Delthil says, immediately seems
to experience relief; the choking
and rattle stop; the patient falls in
to a slumber and seems to inhale
the smoke with pleasure. The
fibrinous membrane soon becomes
detached and the patient'eoughs up
microbicidos. These, when caught
in a glass, ma3' be seen to dissolve
in the smoke. In the course of
three da3rs afterward the patient
entirely recovers."
Dr. Nicholas tried this treatment -
3Testeida3 : with little Ruth' Lock-
wood. She wa3 lying grasping for
breath when he visited her. First
pouring about two tablo-spoonfals
of liquified far 'in an iron pan, ho
poured as much turpentine over it
and set it on fire. The rich resin
ous smoke which rose to the celling
was by no means unpleasant. As
it filled the room the child's breath
ing became natural, and as tho
smoke grew dense she fell asleep.
