The Haitians do not need the services of fa comic opera troupe; their little rebellions furnish ail the amusements they can spare the time to attend. It has never occurred to those whe haven't bought and furnished money to buy negro vote* that in debauching tbe negro politically, they have debauched him morally, and mads him a greater social terror tbau a man unacquainted with the country dictricU and small hamlets in the South conceive. The Dover Sentinel says; A few days ago the Public Ledger of Philadelphia paid a very high tribute to Mr, Bayard's ability. We are at a lost to wholly understand its position; for tbe Ledger has within Us power the meaus of informing Itself. And you have neither the power nor the disposition. Tns bankers of New York will supply the Treasury with gold of capitalists supplied the government with money to put dowu the confederacy and preserve the Union for a consideration. They took the bonds bearing a per cent, interest at fifty per cent, discount, and sold them iu Europe afterwards at a pro rnium. The soldiers even went to war for good wages in hand and $ 180 , 000.000 annual additional recognition of their patriotism thirty years after the course. The war. It la likely that even President Harri son s breast is capable of some feeling of disgust when he compares Charles Foster as a secretary of the Treasury with John O. Carlisle; and John W. Foster as Secretary of State with Judge Walter Q. Gresham. President Hsrrlsou has made for the bench argue that President Harrison knows a man from a manikin; but the Cabinet and Porter and Uaum The selections argue with equal force that he does not know the difference. 1» we are really proud that the prlnci pies of the Democratic party attracted Jndges, college professors and honest, enlightened patriots to advocate Cleve land's election and vote for him ought not to begrudge a recognition of their courage or their eervlces. We ought uot to fall to moke it easy for many more their example at the next The Democratic party now supplies the brains, intelligence and virtue of the political energy of the country. We need all the men, having these qualities, who have the courage to leave the party that is rotten at the top and diseased throughout Us trunk. Get tbe Greshams •way and anchor them ; leave the Quays, the Wanamakers, Carnegie«. m «■ such men to follow election. tbe Harrisons, tbe Junon Martin, of Kansas, elected to tbe Senate by a fusion of tbe Populists aud the Democrats was In Washington last week and after consultation, de elded not to present his credentials till after the fourth of March. The pre dedents set by the Republicans render It probable that the Democrats will not lose much time or give much sympathy to the Republican contestant from Kansas. The Reed Congress ample for hasty, ulent acta in set tho ex unfair, fraud such contests. ' The Democrats would be wore than human almost, if they did not follow that exam pie to tome extent. The evil that the, Republican party has done will live in th.a country long after tho McKinley bill shall have been repealed, the pension list shall have heeu purified, and the last vestige of centralization shall have been expunged from the st.tes. ' Thb effort of Murat Halstead to plain and palliate tbe vicious attacks he made upon James Q. Blaine iu 1876 pitiful and puerile. Even If they were successful in them how can he go back all over bis career of venomous verbosity to explain and palliate his worse .attacks on Grant "as a drunken ass;" on Lin coin as a "fool and a traitor," who should be indicted ; ex are the people guilty of murder, arson and outrages from ou of 1 ha South, s - pure deviltry; on Governor Campbell, of Ohio, as a lobbyist to procure a ballot box act for bis own benefit from Con gross. Halstead cannot explain or pal liate. He must cancel his entire record; as a newspaper man be must obliterate and annihilate himself, be must be burn again. By attempting to explain or pal Hate he simply writes himself down ass. To have been a fool is bad enough. an Tub appointment of Gresham is in the nature of the "appeal te the people" and to the country which Cleveland threat ened if the great political machine of New York should make it necessary. Mr. Cleveland is perfectly capable of carry Ing his threat into execution. There is no doubt of the issue. Mr. Hill and his men made it impossible for Mr. Cleveland to offer him the portfolio of state. Mr. Cleveland does not kuow how much favorable sentiment there is among the politicians and legislators for the Hill movement. He naturally feels that he must be on tbe defensive ; that he ueed not pay any attention to the element which Is hostile to him. It bus been the eus tom for the euccessful candidate to point the rival candidate or candidates for tho nomination for the Presidency to high places. Mr. Hill made it impossible ap for Mr. Cleveland to think of him as Secretary of State. Mr. Hill Is too big a man. With that element in tbe party, with that stumbling block, not great enough to atop him but still great enough to trip and retard him, Mr. Cleve land indulges his fighting blood. He does nut know how to turn his back. He could not put Hill in the Cabine t; be went out of bis way to find a man as nnlik« Hill as the wildest, or the sanest, imagination, can conceive. A "kkwspaper" man who will say "that Mr. Moody is inconsistent" in one issue and devote more than a column on the front page to a review of the "good" and : "glorious" work done by Mr. Moody In the next issae is an example of versatility If not of con sistency. We are glad to observe that the Sunday Star has swung around. It is wrong to attempt to be little the work of Mr. Moody in this city. It is bad newspaper policy as well as bad taste and bad morals. When such vast audiences of our people can he gathered, that fact alone is suf ficient to demand the respectful con sideration of the newspapers, no matter for what purpose they assemble. If they assemble for the purpose of learning and striving to live better lives and to induce others to live better lives, then the news paper Is doing itself an injustice not to encourage the movement; stultifying itself by ridiculing it. HOPE AND PRAY. In considering the probable appoint ment of Judge Gresham to be Secretary of State, it must not be forgotten that Mr. Cleveland is an eminently sensible and practical patriot; that he Is a Democrat ; that he lias made certain per sonal pledges to the people, which he feels a sacred trust iu fulfilling. He is conscientious and sincere in all that he does. He will not do anything that his calm, «ool, Judgment, and his thoroughly courageous miud does not approve. in selecting his advisers, he has a right, he is compelled, indeed, to be guided chiefly.by his own Judgment. That Is Cleveland's case, bis situation, bis justification. Judge Gresham is a man of supreme courage and lofty patriotism. He would not do anytbiug te compromise either. He has the courage to decline, he certainly would decline to go into a Cabinet, if he had the least doubt of his ability to act iu harmony with the Dem ocratic members of that Cabinet. Buch a predicament would bo preposterous. Judge Gresham would not get Into it blindly and foolishly; Mr. Clevelaud would uot ask bim Into it, if they both were not satisfied that Judge Gresham's views ou the great questions of the day were in harmony with those of John G. Carlisle; if ke were uot as instinct with enlightened and disinterested patriotism—free from any taint of the robber protection fallacy—as the best Democrat. That is Judge Gresham's case, his posi tion, his Justification. The objections, however, to Judge Gresham are still worthy of considera tion. His patriotism, his ability, his fit ues.i, his eminently high courage and lofty principles, all being granted, there la some doubt whether he should be placed in tbe line of succession by law, iu tbe line of succession by election, over many able and devoted Democrats, who have never been led away after false gods into a robbery and deception of tbe people, and an attempt to centralize the government for the use and benefit of a lot of industrial mouarebs. While all of this Is true there is noth ing for those Democrats, who do not ap prove of Judge Gresham as Secretary of State, to do bnt remember that both Clevelaud and Gresham are distinguished for good sense and a calm judgment which amounts to almost prescience We must trust that they have exercised those qualities in this case. , . . , .. . . ... _ a P° °« ,ata ,or thal b " rribl « child, ? * 1 rem " mber that - th. "Clonal «mrudmsut confers the of sulTr »ge negroes, " ot confer the privilege of rape, That may be the result of a mistake^ au oversight of the lawmakers but it Is a fact, and the error raunot bo corrected NOT A PRIVILEGE. It would bo well for sympathetic IT now. Whether in conferring the precious privilege of suffrage tho Republican party intended, also, nmuity for tho most horrible of all crimes we do not know; but we do kuow, that no Anglo Saxon people will ratify auy such immuulty. K Hj to confer im the negro I brntc * contin ' l<1 to prey upon white women th *y w *ll ly-ched without | m * rc y- Tlle y ual1 "ever have the liberty of lust nor tho immunity of ignorance. After a trial of twenty-five years the negro is not able to comprehend the franchise. He cannot, or will not, vote without being paid for it. He puts the privilege of franchise on the t-ame plan with a day's labor and sells them both In the open msrket, to the highest bidder. That is the result of the statesmanly wisdom of a great political party, the emotional sympathy of liberty cranks; or it is a sample of what a reckless minority party will do under the exigency of an If the negro knows no better than to barter his vote, he cannot be expected to be cither honorable or decent in other respects. He cannot be allowed any social r.-lstious with tbe whites. (inevitable loss of power. Tbe partisans, demagogues and the sympathetic apologist do not expect him to be any better. They are satisfied to have him sell his vote, provided only that, be sells it to them; and, as for raping, so long as he rapes white women, likely Democrats, who possibly bad fathers or brothers serving under Davis, Lee and Jackson, it is all right; they; brought It on themselves. Then an awful crime like this might afford au opportunity for some pesky lawyer, who wishes to gel Into the Senate, to bring the case Into the United States courts and clear the criminal. It is not always a question of justice, orof tbe safety of defenseless women and children, which must be considered, but polities. It is very costly to buy tbe negro vote, with cash. The protection of a rapist may secure many votes and put » de fender of the "poor negro" in the United States Senate too. After having conferred the priceless boons for which our revolutionary fathers fought, bled and died, on tbe freedmau, will tbe sentimental apologist gulp and gag, or hesitate to pardon him for a rape, followed by a murder, so horrid in its details, that It makes the blood ran cold? Do not the sympathetic apologists for the rapists think that the proclamation of freedom conferred a license to all the hideous passions of rapine, arson, murder and lost upon the negro? They seem to esteem these as not discreditable indus tries, hut harmless, or at least uuavoida hie consequences, which the Koutheru people must endure along with tbe Mc Kinley bill and the pension steal, be cause they dared to oppose the Republi can party in its efforts to hold the offices and loot the Treasury. They never seem to imagine that the negro might be cured of bis awful lust. Though the negro has tbe undisputed privilege of voting it has been practically impossible to prevent tbe Republicans, who love him, from buying his vote. In all commonwealths where the negroes were congregated the white people have been compelled to pass laws intended to compel them to vote honestly or to de prive them of the privilege of voting at all. Their white leaders induced them to evade and defy those laws on the ground that the negroes, lately slaves, have an "Inherent right" to vote. But they have no right, inherent, con ferred or acquired, to ravish and murder defenseless women and children. It seems never to have occurred to the sympathetic apologists for the "poor negro" to suggest that he should not commit such fiendish crimes. Rapes must be stopped; lynchings will continue till they shall have stopped, The sympathetic apologist for the "poor negro" does no good whatever. His defense of the poor negro i a an ag gravation, an offense to the whites. Tbe cause must be removed ; the cure will follow. The people of the Sonth will never endure rape. NEWSPAPER OPINION. Indifferent Mnll Service. Lewes Pilot. So far as second class matter is con cerned, our highly landed mail service is a dismal failure, and there Is hardly a newspaper that has not suffered by tbe carelessness, inefficiency, or indifference of some one who ought to be held re sponsible, The excuse is that the railroad mail clerks have more work than they can properly attend to. That is unfortunate for the mall clerks, but it affords no relief to the sufferers and is merely a reflection upon the system. It Is pretty difficult to locate the blame, but we are glad to say we have reason to believe that no part of It attaches to the service between La wes and Harrington. Gresham and tbe Cabinet, Philadelphia Times. It was the unexpected that happened when the rumors about Judge Gresham entering the new Cabinet assumed the shape of apparent fact; but there should be little surprise aud certainly no com plaint from the President's 'Democratic friends, if the prominent Republican candidate for President iu 1838 shall be come the Democratic Premier in 1893. Frank Blair, the Republican warrior, orator aud vindictive partisan of 18K-1, was the Democratic candidate for Vice President In 1868. deliberately chosen by the Democratic Convention because it was deemed good politics to nominate him. Aside from Judge Gresham's pre eminent fitness for the position in the Cabinet,there would be a vast amount of good politics iu calling him to it. is conspicuously able, rips in experience, spotless iu reputation, and is better qualified for the responsible duties of the office than any of the other prominent men discussed for it; and his politics cannot lie regarded as doubtful iu any sense. He is quite as much a Democrat in faith to-day as either Cleve land or Stevenson, and he has a largo fol lowing, especially in the West, that ac cepted his judgment iu the late contest, as is shown by the large Democratic ma jorities iu Indiana and Illinois. Judge Gres bam has been long on the bench aud has exhibited the good taste to avoid partisau utterances aud actions; bat his faith to day, and ever since tbe McKinley tariff, and tbe Force bill recast the convictions of scores of thousands of intelligent citl aeus. is In entire accord with the alms and efforts of the Democratic patty. If called to the Cabinet, it will not hi be cause he is a doubtful Democrat. but because be is eutirely sound on every vital feature of present Democratic faith, aud his appointment ebould not be regarded as intended to qualify the attitude of the new admlnie I nation It is an open secret that Whit ney, Bayard, Pheipe or Dickinson might have have had the Premiership had either desired it. and it is kuowu that Gresham gave a positive raf usai when cabinet honors were brat suggested to him. The se.ection of Gresham i. therefore no intended departure from a positive Democratic policy; and If he shall enter the new administration, it will be none the less Democratic than if Bayard, a Bourbon of Democrats, had retired lo the office be «o ably and creditably fillet during Cleveland's former rule Gresham will be heart ly iu accord with I he new ad ministration whether in or out of office, aud his admitted character and attain ments must disarm ciiticism if be shall be called to the head of the uew Cabinet. IV Judge Orenhaui la the Cab loot. New York World. We are able to state positively that Judge Walter Q. Gresham has accepted the office of Secretary of State iu the Cabinet of President Cleveland, dering this office to the luoet, prominent and the most honored of tbe former Republicans who supported bis candidacy Mr. Cleveland has displayed the bolduess and ori which features of his extraordinary career. It is a veritable inspiration. Only a great politician could have conceived it. Only a leader confident in himself and confi dent of the people's trust would have dared carry it out. It is natural that In tea gluality have b as a political leader been the most marked the old-time Democrats, those who have through many campaigns "borne the heat and burden of the day" should question the wis dom and even the justice of award ing this great honor to a fresh recruit. Yet such Democrats should remember t he peculiar circumstances of the case. Mr. Cleveland carried a number of Western States which had never before Since the war voted for a Democratic candidate for President. He carried them by the help of voters who had become thoroughly dissatisfied with the Republican party. The revolt became a revolution. It overthrew the Repub lican party and its former strongholds. It elected the Democratic candidates without the vote of Now York. It moat unexpectedly gave the Democrats control of the Senate. In this revolt Judge Gresham was the most conspicuous figure. He had been a member of a Republican administration and a prominent candidate for the nomi nation of his party for President. He had been a brave soldier. He was an honest man and a just judge. The Western people admired and trusted him. No other accession to the Democratic cause gave it such help as the announce meut of Judge Gresham that he would vote for Grover Cleveland, For some time past Judge Gresham has been out of sympathy with the Republican party. In ISSS he denounced the organized bribery by which Indiana was carried for Harri son, and to a World correspondent made this memorable declaration: "It is the Pharisees who are doing this. It. is men of prominence and respectabil ity who raise these large sums of money, knowing the use that they will be put to, men who deal openly lu corruption one day and go to church the next." At the opening of the late Presiden tial campaign, he said: "The most insidious of all forms of tyranny is that of plutocracy. Thought ful men see and admit that our country is becoming less and less Democratic anil more and more plutocratic." He repudiated the excesses of the Mc Kinley bill, and upon every important issue now before the country he is as thorough a Democrat us Grover Cleve land himself. The recognizing In this element which Judge Gresham repre sents, and which did so much to secure Democratic ascendancy, ought to be obvious to all. It will strengthen the Democracy for future victories in Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin, and increase the confidence of the people everywhere in the breadth of its patriotism and the elevation of its purpose. As for Judge Gresham himself, in giving up a congenial life position on the bench, where he was in the line of sure promo tion, he has set an example of self sacrificing patriotism worthy of high praise. Though comparatively a poor man, he raised no question of the inade qnacy of the salary, as others have done; but when tbe President elect urged him the duty and the opportunity of serving his country by helping to execute the will of the people as declared in the groat uprising of November, he put aside persona! inclinations and even braved unjust aspersions of his motives in order to aid the man whom be trusts and the cause in which he believes. There will be no lack of ability, of vigor, of good sense, of hone ity or of genuine Americanism in the State Department with Walter Q. Gresl am at its head, i Mr. Cleveland has stai ted well. political wisdom of honorable way the RECENT LITERATURE. The Illustrated American publishes an excellent study of orator Btiurke Cock ran. In this connection it says; It is one of the misfortunes of education that, in a sense, the chief of the finer arts is almost wholly inexplicable! The casein point is the accepted mastery iu eloquence of a member of Congress from one of tbe New York districts—one Bonrke Cock ran. Mr. Cockran's career has been sketched in terms that would abash Edmund Burke, if be were living and heard them applied to himself. Cockran appeared first at Chicago, in He said his say with a certain flippant fluency that captivated the thoughtless, with a readiness which impressed the reporters bored with the commonplaces of the machine orations. He was listened lo with polite indifference and dismissed Four years later he repeated tbe same perfunctory role, and encouraged by past tolerance, em phasized the insolence of his first effort by the studied malice of a licensed cal umniator. The reporters proclaimed that he had eclipsed conception by the splendor of his diction, the lucidity of his illustration, the aflluence of his fancy, the orotund amplitude of his style! Curiosity sent the discriminating to tbe momentous philippic thus her alded. It was published in extenso all over the land, and the judicious won dered what new mystification the press was playing on the credulous.
