On Wednesday and Thursday last, the two days following the election, the Blaimb voters were cautiously told by the Blaine manazera thatlbey 'believed' they bad can led New York. They did not "claim" the State, bat they "bad hopes." - That was not unnatural. The returns came in "slowly, and the Blaink "estl mates" based on the presumed effect- iveneis of t vast corruption fund raised at the Gould Blaise dinner and In the Union League Club in the last week of the canvass for immediate use were all, of course, in their own favor. Dot the actual returns as they came in proved those "estimates" wrong. What hap pened? By Friday morning the returns were in, and two men who more man au oin ers in this country have the habit of get ting the earliest correct news of all im portant matters and the facilities for get ting itthese two men, J at Gould and William H. Vakderbilt, bad got the correct news, and hastened to congratu late President-elect Cleveland. Mr. Gould was the earliest, for he telegraph' ed President Cleveland tils i congratu lations. Mr. Vanderbilt, more delibe rate, wrote the President-elect, and wrote him an admirable letter, too. On the same day, Friday we wish our readers to note the day tbe Republican Committee telegraphed Mr. Blaikb that Cleveland had carried 'New York. At the same time Friday morning the TrUune hauled down its flag and ceased to put out bulletins. That same Friday afternoon the Alba ny Evening Journal, one of the strongest Blaine journals outside of New York, and placed at the point to" which official returns are bxenght, said : Indiana has undoubtedly gone Democratio, and the reports of a Republican victory in West Virginia and Florida are not substan tiated. It seems elear that Govern r Clsvi. lard Is elected, tor the Statea that have gone Democratic have 219 electoral votes. Every honest eltlsen and newspaper desires simply that the vote shall be fairly counted and the result declared as the vote was oast. The Journal's claims ot Mr. Blainb's eleotlon were based on the. best reports obtsinablo on Wednesday and Thursday To-dav, Wh sa in official xtnrsas bshovb all noosr, rr .BASELY ACKBOWLSROSS SBPBAT. But no sooner had Blaink received the news that he was beaten, and that his own supporters were actually ac knowledging bis defeat, as good citizens ought, than he telegraphed from Augusta kit determination to try a bit of Mexican tactics. Note the language of his p-o-nnncismento: 1 am advised there have been frauds in Hew Tork State. I believe that the honest vote of the State gives a Republican plurality, end 1 k the Committee to mo that we hve a fair and honest ooant. It is all I, I, I. Blaink bad been no tified by tb Committee that the State had gone .Democratic; he was not sure that be could atir them up to support his Mexicam'zins policy, and so, though Mr. Gould and Mr. Vanderbilt, tbe two men most sore to have correct news, were convinced ; though the Albany Evening Journal, hi, vigorous supporter, had written ttat "to-day, when tbe official re turns remove a' I donbt," the Jdurnal "frankly acknowledges defeat;" though bis own committee had telegraphed bim that tbe State was for Cleveland, Blaine refused to accept the (acts and impudent, ly telegraphed. " believe there have been frauds ; hlieve that the honest vote gives New York to the B'publi cans." Everybody knows Blaine's boundless audacity.' He care nothing for right, nothing . for truth. O i tint very day Friday he made at Augusta what is perhaps the most shameless utterance of which an American public man waa ever guilty : I feel great pride that no imputation of frand has ever been seriously uttered agintt the merabtrs of the Republican party in any State er district. Blaine is tempting his followers to revolution. d He has given notice that be is ready lo M x'canize this country if he can get anybody to stand by bim. He helped to Bteal the Presidency in 1876; be was part of the Dorsey "soap and new .two dollar bill" campaign in 1830, and took the State Department as bis re ward. And be now appeals to his fol lowers to help him in a etill more despe rate step. We believe that this bold, bad man, convicted lobbyist, convicted corruption ist, convicted ally of star route and navv thieves, convicted falsifier, convicted ig noramus in all true statesmanship, con victed trickster and political gambler, will fail ia this last attempt at fraud and revolution. He cannot graep the Presi dency, because the people are looking at hint, . ..i. J3T Monuments, Headstones and Tab lets of any design and of any materia 25 Per Cent. Cheaper than any other etableiebment in Monroe or adjoining counti3s, at the Miltonsburs Marble Works, J. M. Ebeblx, Proprietor. Hfew York World, 10th Inst. The Rebels ot 1884. Tbe two essentials of republican gov ernment are honest elections and sub mission to the will of the majority. Mr. Blaine and bis mansgers did their best to prevent an honest election by re sorting to bribery, fraud and intimida tion to control tbe result. Now that they are defeated, they refuse to accept the decision of the people. Corruption having failed to accomp plish its object, contention takes its place. While confessing themselves beaten on the face of their own returns, Mr, Blaine and bis fiiends lack the decency to submit gracefully to the will of tbe people. They must submit at last, either vol untarily or by the power of the law, made inexorable by tbe fierce and con suming lire of public wrath. But they manifest a stubborn, revolutionary spirit of resistance. ' They charge "frand" on the Democ racy now that they are beaten on figures. They want to introduce the Packard, Kel logg and Wells Returning Board rascali ties into our counties. They seek to get obscure partisan Judges all over tbe State to interfere with tbe count by man damns. They call ioto service the men who helped to manipulate th great fraud of 1876. They pin their faith to Noah Davis in this city, whose blind and bitter partisanship s a disgrace and a scandal to the Bench. They invoke the unscru pulous assistance of George Bliss who, with tbe cessation of Republican rule, loses profitable Star Route fees and still more' profitable "settlements" with pub itc robbers. They stretch out their bands to Evarts, whose conscience is loaded with tbe crime and whose pock ets are loaded with tbe profits of a for mer theft of the Presidential office. On wbatpretense do tbe B'aine brig ands thus seek to fight the will of the people? They allege that "changes" have been made In some of the districts. although their own returns give Cieve- and a plurality. Beaten on figures they fall hack on frauds. They pretend that tbe Demo crats contemplate cheating in tbe coun'. Innocent victims! The Republicans have possession of about four-fifths of the counties of the State, yet they are to be defrauded I Tbe County Clerks and Supervisors are in their hands, but some body is going to wrong their candidates who are, by their own figures, shown to be defeated already! Where js the fraud to come from ? The Republican coonties of the State, or the grent Democratic city of New York, hose election machinery is in the hands of notorious Republican scoundrels some of whom are already in Jiil on charges of rascality at the ballot-box. Whatever may be the object of Mr. Blaine and his supporters, their course in keeping np a baneful excitement and arousing the worst passions of tbe com munity is full of dsnger and is as un wise as it is unpatriotic. It is utterly impossible that an attempt again to defraud the people should suc ceed. Mr. Blaine' is defeated, and do earthly power can reverse 'he result. If Mr. Blaine bad been elected by a ingle vote we should have assisted on his peaceful assumption of-the office. As be is beaten, he will find it far easier to get into jail than into the White House. We call upon all honest Republicans who supported Mr. Blaine to let their protest be beard against tbe base attempt to disturb the peace and tarnish tbe honor of tbe country. A large number of such citizens have privately denounced Mr. Blsine's course since election. ' A number of tbe most reputable journals on Mr. Blaine's aide already give up tbe fight and deplore tbe unnecessary agitation. Bubees is un settled. People's minds are dlstnrbed, and for what? . Because a thoroughly bad set of polit ical adventurers are mad with rage at tbe prospect of having to give up tbe spoils of office and the chance of plunder. The course of the Blaine brigands is an offense against the peace and honor of the nation. It should be severely re buked and summarily disposed of. How He Lost Uis Wealth. Pittsburgh Chroniole-Telait raph. "What are you crying tor, little boy ? asked a kind-hearted gentleman from tbe country who read the newspapers. "I ve loat my money, sir, sobbed tbe child.

"In reviling and abusing your mother- in-law," put in the preacher, as Pitzoo ber wound up his tirade on those defense less creatures, "you should not lose sight of the fact that to them you owe the existence of your affectionate wife."

As to Niw York, it is exposed and denounced it the stir iog address issued by the Democratic State Committee at a later hour, which we publish at the head of our political news columns. It is farther explained in an important interview with Mr. Wil lim C Whitney, which is printed in the same columns. Blaine's expectation, w'fi Evarts and Bliss for his chief engineers, is to deal with boards of supervisors in a sufficient number of the counties of New York jast as the returning hoards of Florida, Louisiana and Sonth Carolina were dealt with in 1876. With the assurance of findiog onscrnpuliut republican poli ticians in command of some of them. and with the hope of finding facile re publican judges in some of tbe rural courts, Messrs. Evart and B!is, with a gang of subordinate lawyers from this city and its neighborhood, proposes to invade selected counties and bulldoze or juggle tbe canvassing of their returns so as to cheat Governor Cleeland out of bis majority of the people's ballots. They do not propose t go into all the sixty counties. By no means. Tbat would upset the plot, for technical ir regularities in a general investigation would be pretty sure to balance one an other. What the propose is only a one-sided inquisition, as partial as it is perfidious. And it is au inqilsition for which there is no demand from the se lected counties. It is planned ' in the metropolis and is to be conducted insult ingly to tbe people of those counties oo directions drawn op in the central nest of Blaine conspirators here. We have selected the apt word when we term it an invasion. ' . We have plain and very sernus words to say to Messrs. Evarls and B us about this plot : "Gentlemen, you will push tbii coun try perilously near to tbe verge of a revo- utiqn if you persist in your chicanery and fiod unscrupulous suprviiors and facile judges to do your bidding Your party was fairly beaten in the election. Tbe majority did not submit to be howl ed out of i's victory last week and will not submit to be juggled out of it this week. It has no more respect for your lawyers' tricks than It has for a mob's bludgeons. - The Presidential cheat of 1876 shall not be repeated with success, nor attempted with impunity. You may flitter, yourselves that your lawyers' gowns are strong enough armor to pro tect you. But beware, for your own sake, lest yon be mistaken. If yon are as wise as your recent associate, Jay Gould, you will follow bis example of surrender " The Reason. Arkansaw Traveler.

'No, sir: children sqmewhat dirty, but in good health." "What is your wife doing that keeps ber so constantly employed ?" "Well, you see, several days ago, onr minister came around and said that by such a time he had to have 200 pairs of breeches to send to tbe heathens, and my wife good sonl that she is bas been busy ever since. Just wait, judge, till she gets through, and then I'll come around and dazzle this court with the whitest shirt you ever seed." . An Inside View.

"Had you any un ipeoied experiences when vou got in-the blgber latitudes aside from the general one pertaining to the expedition ?" Oh,- yes.' " One morning, for instance, when the atmesphere was hazy from a light tall of snow, in going a stiff nine knot gait,' we ran plump into an iceberg that was in our way, and for which no one could see. For a moment I thought every mast would go by tbe board, and that my hair and teeth bad preceded tuem. I never got quite such a shock. I was nea.ly thrown out of the crow's nest. I expected soj&tyjiear the Alert was leaking. But, strange as it may seem, with a rebound of at least thirty feet, there was not a seam started. It was almoat miraculous that we had no catastrophe,, and shows bow thoroughly . t i t . m . toai snip was oun. ior just sncu encoun ters in those seas. On a other occasion. wheo over against tbe Greenland coast, I counted not less than J 500 iceberg that bad been pushed from tbe glacial formation oo tbe sloping headlands of the coast into the s a. We could oc casionally bear the crackling that indi cated tbe fissure; but the sight of tnese majestic monarchs of the sea sailing oil in the morning sunlight, with all the colors of tbe prism, was something that cannot be described Fascinating re gion i no you ask. JNsver a one more so. I wanted to stay there awhile Evpq the men I took at New Bedford and Niw London j imped at tbe chance to go, through some of tbem said tbev did not expect to cme back again. Why, af ter we got Greely, and our mission was accomplished, I never felt such a pang of disappointment that, with seventy two days of summer weather before me, and an open sea, I was obliged to turn my prow homeward and ahsndoo the chance to get a higher lail.nde than any other explorer " . " . "Do you think you wonld have had a success had yon been at liberty to have entered on such a trip?" "It seemed-so; at least, just then. And this leads me to say .that tbe re mark I have quoted from Weyprecht was vindicated ii my' experience. Tbe theory of winter sojourning in tbe high latitudes, in order to be oo the ground fgr another season's continuance, is, in mv judgment, all a mi-take. The men might as well come home and have the advantages of civilizuion. Nothing is gained -by remaining within tbe Arctic circle that cannot be realized tbe next season by starting early if the' condi tions are favorable. And these oondi ttons rest upon an oc-en sea. Now, some seasons all the waters are tilled with ice that it is impossible to penetrate. The very next aea-ori every strait, bay and channel is likely to be open water. .The winds, currents and many unknown or undemouslrated influences affect tbe ice. What should be.done is to get everything in readiness early in tbe year, and by May or earlv June be at the upper set tlements. Tnen follow promptly tbe open water, and tbe occa-i n will come, sooner or later, when the pole will be reached. In my case I c mid have got far to the northward, and, if caught in the upper seas, I bad provisions that would have lasted possibly two years, before which time I should havo worked out of the trap. In this connection, l t me tell an anecdote. We were batting firetty effectually one dav some ice that mpeded our progress, wheo one of the Dundee whaling captains said in admi ration of our prowess : 'Ye i I that but ting in fpine style, and it is a tough ship that you have; but if you keep it op. you will ruin your ship for a second sea son.

' , Curious etories are often told about men of no fortune who live like million aires. Occasionally instances like that of "Lord Abererombie," who lived like a Vanderbilt for a few months, croo no. But it is seldom that a man turns up who can live like a Russian prince, drive blooded horses,' give elaborate dinners and move among a fast set of men without having any money of his own. There ii such a man, of rather boy, in X jw York at tbe present time. . He bas been going at a terriuo rate for 2 years I shall call bim Smith, because it is not his name. .. He is -an ideal dude. - His flgurefcai3t to emaciation, his chest narrow,-bis arms and legs long and bis face absolutely colorless.- More than this, it is an effeminate face, with email features, weak eyes and an irreso lute month. It is familiar to half the people in New York. At every event of importance this pale and languid dude is on hand. He has an extraordinary assortment of clothes, were numberless rings, and is usually acoompanied by a valet. He comes' of Very respectable people. I know bis mother and several of his relatives. .They will bave nothing to do with bim, and his name is never mentioned, at home. About two years ago be got In a. scrape up-towu, for which he need ready money at onoe. He begged bis people to give bim 91000, and tney refused point blank. Then be gathered all of bis mother's .diamonds, pledged them for about 93000, and took a steamer for raris When be arrived there be walked into a commission house, asked the head ot the firm for a pointer and languidly tossed bim a check for 97000 for investment. One turn on the bourse landed bim nearly 920,000 ahead He made a few more successful specula. tions, drew the whole amount of bit gain, which bad then reached about 930 000, and prepared to "aee" Paris. He was then twenty years old. Of course no one knew that when be speculated in 91000 lots be was risking his whole for tune at everv turn of the market. He was so placid and serene during his operations that they gave bim credit for having a big fortune in reserve. Mr Smith made things howl in Paris. He lived there four months, spent every penny he had, and returned to America with half a dozen trunks filled with clothes, no end to jewelry, leaving tbe tradesmen of Paris doleful" and forlorn.
