AN ADDRESS TO
Nbw Yoar, Sept 22. The fol-
levriog address has been issued from
the headquarters of the Demecratic
To the people of the United
States: The National Democratic
party of the United States ; has
pledged itself te purify the adminis
tration ef public affairs from oorrup
tion, t 'manage the government
with ecenomy, te enforce the ex ecu
tion of the laws, and to reduce taxa
ties to the lowest limit consisteat
with jost protection t American la
bor and capital and with the preser-
aticn of the faith which the nation
has pledged te its creditors andpen
ioaers. The open recerd of the
man whem it baa named aa its can
didate for the presidency has been
accepted by thousands of indepen
dent Republicans in every State as
an absolute guarantee that if he is
elected all these plodgea will be ex
actly fulfilled, and that under his
administration yood government
will be assured. . .,,
To secure these results all good
citizens must unite in defeating the
Republican candidate for President,
His hidtory and political methods
make it certain that his ad minis tra
tien would be stained by gross
abuses, by official misconduct, and
wanton expenditure of the public
money, and would be. marked by an
increase o: taxation which would
blight the honest industry of our
Against us and against these hen-
erable Republicans who, ,fer the
sake of good government, have
made common cause with us, nota
ble combinations have been mkde.
These are chiefly made up of. four
classes: First, an army of office-holders,
who, by choice er compulsion,
are now giving te Republican com
mittees aa part of the campaign fund
of that party moneys paid to such
officers out of the public treaiury
br services due to the people ef the
United States. Second, e reran ized
bodies of men who, having secured
by corrupt means the imposition of
duties which are in ; excess of all
sums needed fer the wants ef the
government and fer the protection
of American labor and capital, and
having .thus , gat nel enormous
woalth, are willing to pay largely to
he Republican campaign fund for
the promise of the continuance and
increase of suclj duties, wljjclt COR
tiltuta , lystm of fcanntiei U mo
Bepolies under the false pretense ef
protectien to American industry.
Third, a host ef unscrupuleus con
tractors and jobbers who have grown
rich upon public plunder and are
ready te pay tithes' of what they
have acquired in erder to avoid ail
risk ef being called upon to account
for the evil methods by which their
wealth has been gained. Fourth,
corporations which,having despoiled
the publio lands by the aid of cor
rupt agencies in the Republican
party, believe they will be compell
ed to give up their ili-getten gains
if that party is driven from power,
antl are therefore willing te ' keep it
in place by giving it a percentage
of their unrighteous profits. -'
This committee haa not troops of
officeholders at it command. .- It
will net agree to sell the future leg
islation of Congress for money paid
now into its party treasury, ; It will
not promise immunity to thieves.
- -It will not contract tt uphold any
corrupt bargain heretofore made by
the Republican party with any cor
poratiea for all the wealth which
sueh corporations can' offer. It ap
peals to the people against one aad
all of these opponents thus corrupt
ly banded together against the
friends of good government. . The
number of all these , opponents is
small, but their wealth is great, and
it will be unscrupulously used.
An active and vigoreus campaign
must be made against them. Their
paid advocates must be met and de
feated in debate upon the platform
and in discussion in the newspapers.
Tho organization ef all who are ep
tK6ed to them must be effected in
every State, city and county in the
land. . -, '
Money is needed to do this . work.
Your eemmitteo, refusing to adopt
the methods by which the Republi
can party fills it treasury, calls upon
all good citizens for the aid which it
requires. It invites and it will wel
come contributions from every hon
est man who is opposed to the elec
tion of James G. Blaine as President
No contribution will be accounted
toe small. Wherever a bank, banker
or postal mener order office can be
found, the means exist for placing
at the disposal of the treasurer ef
this committee individual or collec
tive contributions in aid of the great
cause in which we are engaged, or
money may bo remitted by mail to
Charles J. Conda, treasurer, at No.
11 West Twentyourth street, New
Wnen victory is achieved over
the unscrupulous combination which
is now endeavoring to thrust James
G. Blaine into the presidential office;
the recorded list of such contributors
will be a roll of honor such as no
other party in this country has ever
Our opponents cannot be saved
from disaster by forcing their un
willing candidate to speak te assem
biases ef the people. The man who
wrote the Fisher letters will never
be the choice of the people for the
presidency of the United States. .

Washington, Sept 28. Speaker
Carlisle arrived, bere to-day on a
flying trip from West Virginia., He
spoke at Grafted a day or two ago,
and is to speak at other points in
that State this week. Talking witl
your correspondent to-day he said
he had not the slightest doubt that
West Virginia would be Democratic
by a large majority, probably fifteen
or twenty thousand.' ::i
"We are net only going to carry
the State," he said "but we shaft
make a Congressional gain there,
for we will beat Goff in his district"
"Yen think the next House is
going to be Democratic, Mr. Speak

woll as West Virginia ?"
"Yes: I spoke at Columbus J tho
other nightj and also at seme other
points in the State." c
"And what do you think of tho
situation there?" - , . t I
"Well, 1 confess that I can hardly
get my ideas up to the point of be-
ieving that we shall earry the State,
as our people there claim we nhall.
They are very hopeful, and, indeed,
confident that the State will be

BT AMT RANDOLPH.
i From th Nsw York Ledger.
Air the neighbors were amazed
when the report of Sophy Manners'
engagement to Ralph Haven was
first bruited abroad.
"It aint so," said Mrs. PolwheaT,
"I've knowed Sophy Manners ever
since shio'was a gal, and she aint one
ts give up her independence to any
domineering, crabbed eld -widower
."And he has four children, too,'.'
said Miss Louisa Arnold, who was
suspected of having been net alto
gether unwilling herself to Console
the widower in his afflictions.
"And Sephy is so independent,
too," said Mrs. J udge Jessup, who
was inclined toward women's rights.
"She needn't be beholden to anybo
dy. With that fine farm' and ten
thousand dollars in the bank, and
nobody knows how much railroad
stock and government bonds, think
that she is making a great mistake.
That's what I told her. Says I : 'So
phy, you don't know what it is to
give up your own way.' "
" 'But I don't mean to give up my
own way, Mrs. Jessup,' says she, as
bright and saucy as you please.
",'Look in the Prayer Book, So
phy,' says 1, 'and you'll find it as
plain as a pike-staff "Love, honor
and obey." '
" 'O ! but if you do love and hener
a man, Mrs. Jessup,' says she, 'it
must be one of the easiest things in
the world to obey him.' "
"It's one thing to talk," sail Mrs
Tolwheal, with a deep sigh, "and
another thing to do. It's a great
joke to aet married, but it's no joke
to get unmarried again."
"He's got a dreadful
said Miss Louisa.
"Tho children are all afraid ef
him," said Mrs. Jessup.
"The Ravens always were a race
of despots," said Mrs. Polwheal. "I
have heard my grandmother tell
how old Duncan Raven turned his
wife out o' doors on a snowy night,
and how she'd a friz to death if the
noigbbors hadn't took her in. And
there was Will Raven, this man's
uncle why his wife couldn't live
with him. She had to go home to
her father's house." '.
Thus croaked the village cronies
on the subject of 3Iiss Manners' en
gagement to Mr. Raven. Nor were
her nearest friends less disturbed.
"Sophy," said Mrs., Captain Les
lie, a bright little brunette, who saug
contralto in the choir, painted in oil
colors, and modeled in cluy, "why
are you going to marry that man?"
"Why did you marry Capt. Les
lie?" eross-questionedtbe bride elect,
with a roguish sparkle in her hazel
"Because I leved him."
"And so do I love Ralph Kaven."
"But, my dear, he is such a ty
rant." -. ....
"He won't tyrannize over me,"
"He has suck a family !" reasoned
"Only four," said Miss Manners.
"And I dote on children."
'And they tell me he haa a dread
ful temper." .
"So have I," laughed Sophy; "but
he isn't going to abandon mo on ac
count of that." . ;
r "fls he coming here to live 1" said
Mrs. : Leslie,' glancing around tho
pretty sitting room, where birds and
flowera and Sophy's work were scat
tered around .in picturesque confu
sion. . ; , ; ; ...
'"Oh, yes," said Sophy. ."The old
Raven house isn't: nearly, slh pleas
ant.-: - t, ,': " ;
So they were married and Ralph
Raven brought his four children to
their new. home. '-' !.'.-
"Isn't it lovely here ?" said Lucy,
the eldest, a tall, pale girl of four
teen, who looked like a lily that has
grown in toe snade. .. . ':
"And sion't you love our; new
mamma?" cried Fanny; the second,
with childish eethusiasm. ' " , ;
"She's a regular brick 1" said lit
tle Johnny. "And Dora says that
step-movers are always cross; but I
know she ain't I She says we may
have a base ball ground anywhere
we please, and a play room in the.
shed." '.. -; ;
."And I am to keep guinea-pigs in
tha barn, and have the white little
pony for my own," joyfully cried
Willie.. - L.;- :
"And papa hasn't been nearly so
cross since we came to Mannersley,"
said Lucy. "And wo are to bare all
the story books we want to read 1 0,
Fanny,' aren't yoi glad we've, got a
ly got into its gibbous decline .when
domestic trouble ' loomed darkly in
the horizon.. . L ; ''
; ."I shall not permit any of this
systematic idleness," said Mr. Ra
ven, sternly. "With these two great
girls te assist yeu, Sophia, you need
not keep a servant And Hannah
is shockingly wasteful I By hiring
a woman now and then, a day, to

"Oh, I have had Hannah here
ever since I can remember," sil
Mrs. Raven. "I couldn't do with
out Hannah. And I don't want to
turn tho little girls into mere drud
ges. On the contrary, my-dear, I
have sent for a new servant, who is
to act as chambermaid and waitress.
"I will not have her hero I"
claimed Mr. Bar an.
"Oh, yes you will, my love,
Mrs. Raven. ; . :
"Tho size of the establishment
displeases me altogether," went on
Mr. Raven, frowning. "Four hor
ses! That is all nonsense. One is
all sufficient. We don't kep a liv
ery stable, tie we ?"
"I have given thr little ponv n
Willie," !?' Mr. 'Rsren. "It ?; in
excellent nsddle horse, an-i Wi!!
a delitatc child and needs ev?rrif?
in the open air? The black pair in
for my carriaga, and the old norrel
is needed for the farm work "
"I shall eell throe of them," said
Mr. Raven, stubbornly; "I shall not
allow you lo waste your money w
irightfnlly. Lucy must learn house
keeping, and Fanny can dust and
sweep as well as any lazy, extrava
gant maid. As for Willie, if he
nesds exercise, there are the onion
beds to weed. I have already di
rected John to pick the stenc off
the sidohill pasture and pile them
neatly up in heaps., That will be a
great deal more sensible than wast
ing his time in base ball games. Aa
for you, my dear Sophia, I do hot
judge it expedient that ym r-itll
drive oat ko much and walk ;iv:;y
vour time in the wool.. A or.i
an's place is at home."
Sophy's eyes sparkled ominously.
"You think bo, do you?" Baid she.
"Most assuredly I do," complac
ently replied the husband.
Here was the Raven temper crop
ping out at last. Sophy felt that im
mediate measures were essential. If
she yielded now, she should be
mere slave for the rest of her life,
like the poor, mcek-spirited mother
ef the four little Ravens, who had at
last taken refugo in her grave, and
whose children were just beginning
to taste the sweets of childhood in s
step -mother's home. ;
"Ralph," she said, serenely, "this
hou9 is mine. And I intend to b-t
mistress of it."
"You are ray wife 1" ho cried, hot-
"But not your slave or victim.
Listen to me," said Sophy. "I am
a lady, and will be treated as such.
Your children I feel to be a sacred
bequest, from their duad mothor, and
I will not allow them to be trodden
under, feet or tyrannized over, nt
least while undar ray eharre.. It
teems that we can net 'aret You
had better go back to th TI.nri
nmest.ead .nnd live. I will rvti:im
here. By this arrangement f.tr
avoid the disgrace and scandal 'of h
public separation." . . .
Mr. Raven stared at his. wife in
"You would then wish a separ
ation? ' said ho. !
"It is for you to decide," Sopl.y
"Very well," he said, gnawing fc s
under-lip. "It shall be as yoa
choese." ' v ; ' ' !
He turned away and went homo
to the old. Raven Homestead with
out another word. ' j
! "I will not be conquered by a! wo
man, '' ho said, wrathfully. t - ? : '

"I wonder if Sophy can bo right,"
said tie to himself. . " ; ' i
And the next link in the chain of
argument was: ,J !!- -! j - ,,,
"Sophy t right'I believe." - ;:

It was no easy task to ; confess
himself in the wrong,1 but Ralph
Raven could be brave when the ocs
casion presented itself. He went
back to Mannersley thenoxt day. i ,
"Sophia," he said, "I have been
thinking this matter over ?"!.
: ''Well?" said Mrs. Raven, trying
hard to still the tumultuous beating
of her heart. For to her as to' him,
this iday represented a lifedong cri
sis. She had tried an experiment.
What was to come of it ? -
"And I hare come to this conclu
sion, that I have been in the wrong,"

Nothing moro passed between
them, nor was it neeessary. Tha
children were allowed to go out in

without let or. hindrance, and a new

And all the g)aaipi beheld and
marveled much. i- ( i

"Sophy Manners must be possess
