Carl Scauiz addressed a large meetH ing of Republican, wbo cannot support Blaine, in Brooklyn, New York, the night of the 5ih inst. Ia cloainz he said: . . - "The Democratic party has offer pre sen ted a candidate whom the w&5)8 beo pie could see step into tbeFresidentlal chair with a greater feeling of security than Grover Cleveland. Tat St. Clairsvllle Gazette has this to say "of Gen. Warner, the Democratic candidate for Cong-ess in this District, who addressed the Democracy of Bel mont County at Barnesville on the 5th Inst.: Those who listen to Gen. Warner are given food for thought, rather than empty words only to be heard, applauded and as soon forgotten. Our people are pleased with' him as a man and as their Congressional standard bearer, and will gire bim an earnest and hearty support." A Congressional Committee is fores- tigating the Soldier's Home management at Dayton. Gen. Patrick, an old gen. tleman, is the Governor, and is wholly unfitted, by reason of age and military training, for the place. He onght to bare been removed in 1881, when Gen. Fraskuk and other managers of the Home were made aware of bis brutal treatment of the inmates, and the man ner in which the Institution was conduct ed politically. The Adjutant and Chap lain were efficient workers for the Repub lican cause at that time. The Republican leaders at Washing ton are putting the machinery in opera tion to grind campaign contributions from the Department clerks. Tho Ohio clerks are in a dilemma. The Republi can State Commutes has commanded them to stand and deliver, also the Re publican Congressional Committee, with headquarters in Washington, has invited them to contribute of their "daddies" to aid the cause. Between the two the clerks will be ground ' verr flnet. and boarding honse keepers will suffer with them. Gen. Warner voted for every pension measure before Congress that was caten ated to benefit the condition of the sol diers of the late or any other war, that had justice to sustain it. There were bills before Congress, introduced in the way ot buncombe, to catch votes, which those who advocated Xheir passage knew would never become 'lawn, that Gen. Warner refused to sustain because they were juat such measures as we have stated. Speeches were made in Iheir fa vor by demagogues, who knew their pur pose In doing so, and the people under stood their purpose and will rebuke.tbem at the proper time. Gen. Warner is the true friend of the soldiers, but never has been guilty ot advocating measures, de ceptive in their nature, that would never avail them a single cent, for the purpose of catehlng their votes. Tbe Boat ot the Best. The Baptiat Examiner, tbe leading journal ot that denomination in tbe United States, has this judgment of the Democratic candidate for President: Governor Cleveland is now in the second year of bis chief magistracy of the State of New York, and it is not do ing too much to place him in the front rank of. tbe best Governors the Empire state has ever bad. As General Bragg said in tbe Chicago Convention, his best commendation is tbs character of the enemies he has made: He . has Droved himseir to be a state chief magistrate wbo has placed principles above ptrty, Having done everything well he has un dertaken to do, there is tbe best of res son to believe that if elee'ed to the Presi dency of tbe United States he will again prove nimseit to be equal to its high and responsible amies, tie has said, what few men could say . who have received the national nomination for i s highest omce, mat u is an nonor ne oas never sought.

Tbe following synopsis of Gen. War ner's speech at tbe Miners' picnic is from the Cambridge Jeffersonian The speech shows tbe General's position on tbe labor question and is worthy a care ful reading : "Your chairman says that Guernsey countv U fortunate in having two repre sentatives in Congress. I am sorry to say that the district I now represent does not include Guernsey county. I am sorry I In'erruptel exercises more inter esting than any remarks that I can make. Although I desir-s very much to he with you to-day, at first I feared that my ei gagement8 were auch that I could not; hut finding that I could make a train in time to be with you for a few minutes I gladly availed myself of the privilege. I frequently attend such gatherings as this in my own cennty ani sometimes in neighboring counties, and alrfays do what I can to enoourage them. . Indeed, we do not have enough of these social occasions. Among us Americans there is too much tendency to isolation, in stead of commingling and exchanging ideas and views. Civilization would not be what it is to-day, if it were not for the commingling of the people. Our advancement is due not a little to such conditions, and I am glad to see this vast and happy concourse here to-day It is good to come into these grand grove, Nature's first temples, and with wife and children and friends epends day in social converse and recreation and I kdow of no better list of a good msn than that he loves bis wife and children, and I am glad to see you gath ered from the deep, dark mines under these bills into this pleasant grove to de vote a lay to the happiness of yourselves and y ur families. It is healthful to your body, it is healthful to your Intel lect, it is healthful to yonr moral nature. . In a gathering of this kind all politi cal questions are to be kept asi le. This day is alone for social enjoyment, and the cultivation of the Intellect that re sults from a wise attention to our social obligations; meeting old friends, making new friends, all resulting in the improve ment of our condition. There is noth ing lost by intercourse and consultation, but there is much gain. The United States is the busiest country on tbe face of tbe globe. Our power to produce is greater than that o any other people. Why, the productions of agriculture alone amount to three and half billion dollars in a single season. Then the products of the mines and manufactures amount to six billion dol lars more, maktc? in all about ten bil lion dollars. How much is saved and how much consumed deoends on the economy of the citizen. In this country the laborer receives a larger share of the total than any other countrj, and still he receives too little. Yet I believe that the laborer is receiving a constantly increas ing proportion, and although he does not yet receive, enough, I hope the day scorning and that soon, when every working man will receive his just shsre of the profits of his labor. If any of you have read such a book as micblet and I nave do doubt but that many of you have, for in my long and close association with miners I have found many well informed and studious men. and I am free to say that much of the knowledge that I possess in regard to the geological formation and coal stratifications I acquire from miners and from them I learn many things which could not be found io tbe books. II any of you hava studied the labor his tory of France in the past century, yon know that there has been a great im provement in the condition of the work- ing.nen there Yet, there ia still a great difference between the condition of tUe worRingmen there and here. In those European countries the very constitution of the government itself, the fabric of society and the peculiar class divisions inherited hy one generation from another. make a difference indeed, are almost insuperable obstacles to the advancement of the laborer. In this country we started without any such stratification of so ciety, that there should be no clasa regu lattons. . Tbe theory of onr government is that It should he administered, not for the benefit of the few. but for tbe benefit of the many. I am sorry to say that sometimes it is not administered as it should be. but still that is the theory There should be no claas distinctions here, and there is not. Men bave amen and will arie from the cabin to tbe greatest positions of honor and trust io the Federal ffovernment. ' ITheae fundamental principles prevent . tiai Birauuuauoa 01 society ami cnsiave ment of the poor which exist in other coon'ries. The protection of labor in the United States shoull be tbe chief care of its public servants. I believe in the equality of industries, and all should stand npon an iqiality. But when it comes to putting our industrial system in competition with other systems that are founded upon principles which wc a a tree people repudiate. I am io favor of protecting our own industries. Be cause, otherwise it wouM tend to bring about in this land tbe same divisions ot society and distinctions of class which are the bane of many foreign govern ments. We, as a people, are making more money than any other nstion. but that alone will not make us wealthy. Our wealth depends upon how much we save, tr a man mattes a thousand dol lars a year and spends a thousand, he is worth no more at the end of tbe year than at the beginning. But If he maka five hundred dollars a year and spends four bundled be is worth one hundred dollars more than at the beginning, and is a capitalist. Every man should try to become a capitalist to that extent. An other remark: is. that productions should be diversified. Everybody must not work at raining, nor mast everybody work on a farm. Intelligence applied to labor is the glory of the American sys tem. There U no laborer who cannot add to h'a knowledge, and as I remarked before. I baye fonnd that many joiners srs better infoimed in regard to what appertains to their business than writers of books. General Warner closed by gracefully thanking bis bearers for their close at tention. He was loudly applauded, and many kindly shook his hand." The Bights ot Other People's Work- iDgmen. New York Herald. Before Mr. Blaine went out gunning for tbe labor vote be should have fixed np that little difficulty in the office of his organ, Mr. Mills Tribune. It is vary awkward after posing as thd working man s friend to have public attention drawn to the fact that tbe Tribune reiter ates its determination to outlaw the member of tbe labor nnion And lock out its trade onion.employe9. Workingmen are not fools by any means, and there is a growing impression among them that a candidate wbo believes in the rights only of other people's workingmen isn' such a peculiarly trusty woikingmau's candidate after all. BLAINE TS. BLAINE. The Plumed Knight Convicts Him self of deliberate Falsehood. in the Fort Smith Business. ' : Sow York Sun. Our esteemed contemporary, the Eve ning Post, in a series of articles in which candor and acutenees have kept even step, brings out very clearly the fact that Mr. Bla'ne told at different times two en tirely different s'ories about bis connec tion with the Little Rock and Fort Smith speculation. In other words, leaving out of signt altogether the question of bis guilt or innocence of corruption in that business, his own statement and tbe tes timony afforded by tbe letters which he admits having written convict him of de liberate falsehood. It will be remembered that the same thing happened in the case of several of tbe Credit Mohilier Congressmen during the investigation that, curiously enough, was set on foot by Mr Blaine hiraseir. Ia their ignorance ot the rxis'ence of Oakes Ames' memorandum book, some of the Senators and Representatives whom Oakes Ames had bribed made sworn statements at the beginning of the investigation which were utterly demol ished by the production of tUe record evidence a few days la'er. Then tbey were obliged to change their defense The wholesale denial under oath which bad been the first refuse of tbe inculpa ted statesmen profited them nothing; in the light of the subeqent disclosures it si no ply added perjury to iheir. load of shame. Mr. B'aine made the same mistake. In April, 1876. when the report wia jirs circulated that Mr. Thomas Scott bad taken off his hands, for $64,000, bonds of the Little Rock and Fort Smith R til road Company of the face value of 875,. 090, Mr Blaine hastened to his feet in the House of Representatives with a per sonal explanation. It was mtde on April 24, 1874. and is printed on page 2,723 ol volume 4. part 3, of tbe Congressional Record. Mr. Blaine tiien said: "The absurd rumor has lately appear ed in certain newspapers that I was the owner of from $150,000 to 250.000 of the Little Rtck and Fort Smith railroad bonds, which I received without coosid- eration.and that it wa from these bonds that Thomas .A Sooit received his $75, 000. Tbe statement is gratuitously and utterly false. "The Little Root and Fort smitb Company received a grant from tbe State Finally, towarl Uh close o' 1863, a company of B stoi gentlemen, representing considerable capital, under took its construction. Ia raiding tbe requisite means tbey placed the bonds of the road on the New England market in the summer of 1869, offering them on terms wuhh seemed very favorable to tbe purchaser,and offering them at a time when investments or t&is kind were la- tally popular. "Ia common with hundreds or otoer people n New Eigtand and other parts of the ciuntry, I bought some of these bonds not a very large amount paving for them at precisely the eame rate that others paid. "I never heard and do not believe that the Little Rock Company which I know is controlled by highly hpnorable men ever parted with bond to any person except at tbe regular price fixed for the sale. My whole connection ith the road has been open as the day. If there had been anything to conceal about it, I should never have touched it Wherever concealment ia desired avoid ance is advisable.and I do not know any better test to apply to the honor and fair ness of a business transaction." After patting this noble sentiment into the form of an apothegm, Mr. Blaiae summed up bis denial : "Instead 6f receiving bonds of tbe Little Rock and Fort Smith road as a gratuity, I never bad one except at the regular market price, and instead of ma king a large fortune out of that compa ny, 1 have incurred a severe pecuniary loss from my investment in its securities, which I stilt retain. And oat of such affairs as this grows the popular gossip of large fortunes amassed io Congress.' At the time when Mr. Blaine made his statement in explanation of his owner ship of the Little Rock bonds and it our recollection js right this very state ment waa subsequently incorporated at his own request into bis sworn testimo ny before the Investigating Committee he had no reason to suppose that bis own letters to Mr. Warren Fisher, Jr., should ever see the light again, or that the memorandum of Mr. Fisher's book keeper, Mr. Mulligan, would ever be pro duced for the information of a commit tee of Congress. He, therefore, took high grounds. The rumor that he was tbe owaer of 8150,000 or more of these bonds was absurd. He bad bought some of tbe bonds not a very large amount paying money lor them precisely as every o'her investor did, and at the mar ket price. Had it come to this, be de manded, that an American citizen was to be excluded from a perfectly honorable and open business investment merely be cause he happened to be a representa tive in Congress? Mr Blaine's indig nation was as lofty as the sentiment which he advanced was virtuous: "Where concealment is desirable avoid ance is advisable." Yet it was destined that within six weeks Mr. Blaine shorld be forced to read in the House a letter written and signed by himself, showing the extct s' of the "small amooni" of bis bold-J tngs in Little Rock and Fort Smith bonds a small umount, as be said, paid for in cash at the market price, and mag nified by an absurd rumor to som-thing over $150,000. On October 4, 1871, he wrote to Mr Fisher : "I have been used with positive cru elty in regard to the bonds I have yonr posi'ive written contract to deliver me $125,000 land bonds and 132.500 first mortgage bonds. Of this whole amount of bonds due me I have receiv ed but $50,000 land grants, leaving $75 000 of those snd $32,500 first mortgage still due." It appears that the "absurd rumor" as to tbe amount was about right. But if Mr. Blaioe had paid in cash for his $157- 500 of bonds, just like every other in vestor, and at the open market price, bow was it possible for Josiah Caldwell and Wnrren Fisher, Jr. to defeat him of bis rights? How did it happen that tbe Boston capitalists were in a position to treat tbe-innocent and simple-minded legislator with "positive cruelty ?' Tbe answer is afforded by the memo randum in Mr. Blaine's handwriting-, showing that he did not pay a dollar for his Little Rock bonds, but received them as a gratuity or commission ; and further light is afforded- by Mr. Blaine himself in one of the Mulligan letters: "Mi Dear Mr. Fisher: Yonr ofier to admit me to a participation in the new railroad enterprise is in every respect as generous as I could expect 3r desire. I thank you very sincerely for it. . . . "I do not feel that I eha'i prove a dead-head In the enterprise if I once em bark in it. 1 see various channels in which I can be useful. Very hastily and sincerely your friend. "James G Blainb. "Augusta, June 29. 1869." 1 Tuo maxim which Mr. Blaine laid down for the government of bis relations with specnlative enterprise may be slight ly improved' to fit his case: "Where avoidance would have been advisable and concealment is urgently necessary, silence is the best policy until tbe mem orandum books have all been produced." THE BUFFALO SLANDER. Its Anth jrs Covered With Confusion Henry Ward Beecher Will Take the Stump tor Ctevelaud. A Jury ot Independent Republicans Will 8it on the Fetid Story and Give its Verdict. New York, Angu3t 6. Tbe Brook lyn Union this evening published tbe fl low ng dispatch from Petkskill, New York : The Rev. Henry Ward Beecher passed nearly the entire morning in listening to a statement fiom General Horatio C. King, of Brooklyn G;neral King ha9 lust returned from Buffalo, where he has been engaged in making for Mr Bencher a careful investigation ot tbe scandalous stories in circulation about Governor Cleveland, ins result or uis inves ia tion is entirely favorable to t!ie Gover nor, and Mr. Beecher is highly delight ed. : To a Union reporter Mr. B?echer said this morning: ' I have been undergoing a judicial process. I have been way ilowd in the mul, bit now the clones are breaking away, and I am begmn ng to nndei stand that these stones about Governor Cleveland are untrae and a vile glandT. You can say that I expect to brand l ie men who havo promulgated them 'as black m tilers and liars; for 1 now' expect tbe G ivernor acted the part of a man in this affair. I shall take the stump for him and tell the people of this country that they mu?t elect him President. I shall enter this campaign with an enthusiasm second only to lb; t with which I entered the war.' Take my word for it, this scandal, if false, will make Governor Cleveland President." Mr. Beecher said that he felt like an other man ei ce bis talk with General King, and that a great weight bad been lifted off his mind. No one can be found to father the calumnies except the gentleman known in Buffalo as Elder Ball, pastor of a small Baptist Church, and formerly an employe in the Custom house. Ball is best described as a po litical striker. In 1881 he demanded and received $50 ror alleged services to tho Independent Rpnblicns In a re cent cinvass he begged $250 from Sena tor Titus and a like sum from H. R Jones, County Treasurer, both Demo crats. 0.ie ot the stories circulated by Ball relates to an occurrence twenty-four years since, sn innocent frolic, in which the participants were legal chums of tbe G ivernor, and there was no woman present. A committee of three inde pendent Republicans, composed ot a leading clergyman, a lawyer and a mer chant, on Monday demanded of the editor or the Buffalo Telegraph . the proofs which he said be was ready to produce. He was greatly alarme, and, on the plea of sxkness, asked tor delay. ine committee will matte a tnorough in vestigation and give the facts to tbe public over their signatures as aoon as the Telegraph gives its replv. Tbe Dr. Mitchell who figures witb Ball as a supporter of bis charges is from Washington, and is an :ntimate friend of Mr. Blain9. He has been in Albany but three years, more than half of which, time Gvrnor Cleveland ha bien in Albany. He has publicly ad mitted that he knows nothing except by hearsay,, and his informant is Ball. F O. Lcke. partner of Sherman L R ger, and an intimate friend of Mitchell, has withdrawn from his church, and other leading members have also withdrawn until he publicly retracts bis statements. Tuere is much excitement in Buffalo, and the m ist prominent people denounce the authors of tbe slanders The report of tbe committee may be expected in a day or two. German. Americans Against Blaine. N.T.Timei. Reports from Cnnecticul and West Virginia indicate that a great majority of the German-Americans In those States will not vote for Blaine. The power of the Germans in Connecticut was shown two rears ago when the Ger man Progressive Union supported everv nominee on the Democratic State ticket except one. The Democrats whom thev supported were elected, G v. Waller at tbe head of the ticket, receiving a plu rality of 4 000. b it the Democratic no n inee for Control'er, whom they opposed, was defeated by Gen. Sloa', R -publicm. for whou they voted. Sloat's plurality was 2,400. Delegates representing the several branches of this Progressive Union met in convention Monday Tvening and unanimously voted to support Cleveland. The report of their proceedings shows that they fully understand the peculiar! ties of Blaine's character Ninety per cent of tbe German R 'publicans in two wards in Wheeling, Wet Va , bave de serted Biaine and decided to vote for Cleveland, and it is believed' in this re spect they fairly represent the tendencies of the remaining Germans in tbe State. If this belief is well founded Mr. Elkins will be forced to admit that the disposi tion of tbe State's Electoral votes is not "a question of finance." i - 1 1 1 i.i m p- An Editor's Tribute.
