In accordance with the new version, permit us to inquire who in Hades is tummas nickel? ' Let the friends of the dumb brutes as semble in force at the Congregational Church to-night. The rapid increase of subscribers to The National Republican is something. marvelous in "Washington journalism. Yesterday it was nip and tuck which was President James A. Blaine or tummas nickel, with the odds slightly in favor of squeaking tummas. If the administration men at Albany are going outside of the party to defeat Conkling, can they expect him and his friends to remain in the party to be de feated? " The large increasing demand for The Republican from all sections of the coun try is a substantial evidence that the Stal warts are alive to the present alarming condition of the old party and desire to read a live paper published at the Na tional Capital which is true to the princi ples of Stalwart Republicanism, nnawed by the frowns of power, and uninfluenced by the blandishments of patronage. Tins Conkling quarrel affords us a chance to re trieve our party fortunes. Don. Ex. Why, you unregenerate greenhorn, don't you know that every time your party thinks it has "a chance" it perpetrates some gigantic and asinine blunder that makes the Republicans solid as the hills? Keep still or you'll everlastingly ruinate your little squad before the rank and file find out it ever had a chance. To which party does Mr. Conkling belong? Sew York Tribune The Administration vs-The Republican Party. To go into tbe caucus or not go is the issue upon which the whole contest is now shaping itself. The followers of Conkling have undoubtedly a majority of the Republicans of the Legislature. Eighty-one votes are necessary to elect a Senator; there are IOC Republicans in the Legislature. If the Conkling factioD can induce 81 men to go into their caucus they will not care in the least whether all of them vote for Conkling and Piatt in the caucus or not. A majority would un doubtedly do so. It would be claimed, of course, that allthe participants in the caucus were bound - uactioa of the majority. On the other hand, ure rlST ?fUia administration think they can show that Republicans" -""? under no moral obligation to-emer such a caucus, and that it is for the good of the party as well as their own that they should remain inde pendent of it. If only 26 Republicans refuse to enter the caucus and refuse to vote for Conkling and Piatt, the twin candidates will have but 80 votes, and cannot be elected by Republicans and as Republicans. Twenty-six is a small number compared with the whole num ber of those who unhesitatingly disapprove of the re-election of Conklingand Piatt. Barely one half; and it would seem strange indeed if many more than 26 were not ready to fight it out on this line if it took all summer. But it will require more nerve for men to stand out against a caucus than for or against a candidate, and the Conkling managers expect to concentrate upon these men at the capital and apart from their constituents every appliance of political machin ery and every influence which cansway the mind or heart. Their fears for their political future, their ambitions, their cupidity, their business and per sonal connections will all be used with incessant energy ; in short, the machine, with all its great, power, is about to make" a superhuman effort to break down the friends of the administration in this State. Sew York Tribune. The above is the real situation at Al bany. The Republican party is to be de feated in the election of Senators if the administration has power enough to do it In the election of United StatesSena- tors the party can" only speak through a majority of its members in the Legisla ture. " Thcfclloicers of Conkling hare un doubtedly a majority of the Republicans of the Legislature," says the Tribune's cor respondent But he adds: "The friends of the administration think they can show that Republicans are under no moral obligation to enter such a caucus." That is to say, the administration, being unable to control the Republican party in New York in the matter of choosing two United States Senators, has the moral right to break it up by seceding. That is plain and easy to be undertood. He admits that "it will require more nerve for men to stand out against a caucus than for or against a candidate." That is, the administration's men find it up-hill work to impress Republican mem bers into the service against the Republi can party ! He means that " the ma chine" that is, the majority "is trying to break down the friends of the admin istration" in New York meaning the minority of the Republican members of the Legislature. All that the administra tion asks is that the majority of the Re publican members shall vote as they m-iy be commanded by the minority. In monger. Every friend he has knows it is true, and that he has always refused to deal with offices. He resisted the re moval of Arthur, Cornell, and 3Ierritt without cause, and for this he is de nounced as a patronage-seeker. Where is the Towpath Club? The old boat is snubbing her nose against the bank and the mule is almost overboard. To the rescue, ye brave! PERSONALITIES. For the benefit of the unsophisticated j short, all it asks is to have its own will iss Nancy of the Tribune, we take I "" way, despite the majority, and Miss pleasure in saj-ing that Mr. Conkling be longs to the Republican party to the party that defeated the demi-Democratic Greeley movement in 1S72 and elected Mr. Garfield in 1SS0. He is a Stalwart, and has ever been such, and is not owned by, or under the control of. Jay Gould or any other railway potentate. 0 The imperial State of New York, not to put too fine a point upon "it, is about to erect its back. Sew Yrk Tribune. Just so. The State of New York is about to erect a Stalwart Republican spine and unseat the half-breeds, weak knees, and other equally undesirable por tions of its burden which treachery and gigantic railroad monopolies have sad dled upon it. The Tribune will know soon enough how it seems to be sat down upon by a Stalwart with plenty of backbone. The President has in no respect tried to dictate to the Senate. Sew York Tribune Oh, no ! He never tried to dictate, but merely allowed it to be generally under stood that those Senators who voted con trary to his wishes would thereafter re quire letters of introduction before being permitted to enter into his exalted pres ence. That is all ! No attempt at dicta tion in that ! It was nothing but a purely business transaction involving the distri bution of presidential patronage, of ap pointments to Federal offices, to be granted or withheld accordingly as Sen ators voted. The telegraph reports that Mr. Thomas Nichol is at Albany, ready to take a hand in the senatorial contest there. It is not at all likely that Messrs. Conkling and Piatt had anything to do with the movement, but the chances are that their pros pects will be very considerably improved by it. As a political agency Mr. Nichol is something in the nature of the old-fashioned ducking-guns that used to be in vogue on the Chesapeake. The party at the breech is in about as much danger as the one at the muzzle. Evening Star. Notwithstanding the above sarcastic insinuation, isn't it a fact that " tummas nickel" has been a representative spokes man and expounder of the views of the White House m relation to the present political imbroglio? Mde his recent ar ticle in the New York Tribune upon that subject. "What Will ConkJhigDo in the Senate? . The latest cry against Senator Conk ling is that if returned he will be an In dependent Well, he will be independ ent of the administration, favoring every thing it does which he can approve, and opposing what does not commend itself to his judgment Was this considered an offense in Representatives Blaine, Garfield, and eighteen others when, in lS7o, they voted against the force bill, so called, which wasrocommended by Presi dent Grant? That was not an appoint ment to office in payment for a vote in a convention, cist m violation both of pledge and instructions. It was a great public measure, applicable.to a few rebel lious districts and limited in the time it should operate. It was but a repe tition of a remeuV which had proven efficacious in 1S71-2, and for which those same representatives voted. It was passed in the House despite their opposition, but they had delayed it so long by joining hands with the Demo crats in filibustering against it that it was too late to secure action upon it in the Senate. It was a fight against the admin istration in which they were obliged to aid Southern bull-dozers rather than gi e Grant the means necessary for en forcing bv the Tribune, Cincinnati Commercial and Gazette, and other half-breed jour nals as noble conduct. Since when was the will of a President the party law ? Senator Conkling will never antagonize the administration except to protect the principles upon which that administra tion was placed in power. He will be found, where he has always stood, shoul der to shoulderwith. Stalwart Republican Senators, doing his utmost to uphold and advance the cause to which he has given his life and his great intellectual power. if this is not conceded the stand ard of revolt is to be raised and the cominis-ary stores are to be re lied on to induce desertions from the regular organization. Do not the Repub licans of the country now see the cloven foot beneath all this Robertson perform ance ? Do the' not Fee that it is the de liberate purpose of the President to build up a spoils party, to be called an admin istration party, on the ruins of the Re publican party ? It may be found by and bye that this scheme embraces Dem ocrats in both Houses of Congress. We have no fears that a sufficient number of Republican members of the New Yorlc Legislature can be seduced from their al legiance to the part- to reduce the caucus below the number required to elect. "Why the New York Senators Resigned. Senators Conkling and Piatt regarded the nomination of Robertson as an out rage upon the Republican party of New York. The friends of the administration said they were factious. Their course brought upon them the hostility of the President In this hostility their New York friends had to share. It was a great responsibility. There was still another serious consideration. The President petulantly declared that whoever in the Senate should stand by them would be regarded by him as enemies. Senator Conkling was an old Senator, and had. warmly attached friends in that body. The situation created by the President made it impossible for any Senator to stand by him without incurring the presi-' dential displeasure, which meant every effort to defeat them in their States in their next elections. If the Senators re mained in theirseats their friends in New York must be proscribed for a difference concerning which they had not been heard and brother Senators must be an tagonized with the President over a mat ter not of theirs. Some sacrifice had to be made. Senators Conkling and Piatt de cided to relieve the situation by resign ing their seats. This left their frienuS at home free to decide the matter for them selves organization in New York, they had created an antagonism which their friends would have advised against, they gave them an opportunity to say so. If the Stalwarts, who are a large majorit- of the I Republican members of the Legislature, j agreed with them that Robertson's nomi nation was a conspicuous reward for party treachery and an insult to the main body of the party, they would vindicate the Senators by a re-election. If the re straints of party were distasteful to the President who had just been elevatedtio power by the party fidelity of Stalwarrt who had opposed his nominationfthis would give him an opportunity to with draw and become an Independent. From every point of view the resignations were magnanimous, wise, and patriotic. Now let New York speak for herself.

Governor Jarvis, of North Carolina, procured a large national flag and a State flag, which were displayed from the capitol on the 20th instant, the one hundred and sixth anniversary of the State. Secretary Blaine is informed that the French delegation to the Yorktown Centennial will consist of no more than ten gentlemen, de scendants of Lafayette, DeRochambeau.and other of our allies in 1781. Mr. Conkling has informed his friends that he must stand or fall with his colleague, Mr. Piatt he must either be re-elected with him or not at all. This is entirely in keeping with the chival rous character of the man. About the meanest thing was done at Keokuk, Iowa, the other day, by the heirs of the Magoun estate, who got together and settled their differences. The estate is worth fully $75,000, and the lawyers bad only got S14.C00 of it. It is be lieved there has been trickery. Peck's Milwaukee Sun. Mr. Murat Halsted says of Colonel Thomas A.

General James AVilson, of Keene, N. II., has expressed a wish to be present at the in auguration of Governor-elect Bell nest month. What makes him especially anxious to be in at tendance is the fact that he wa3 present when Mr. Bell's father, John Bell, was inaugurated Governor of New Hampshire fiity-three years ago. General Wilson at that time was speaker of the New Hamp shire house of reproentatives. Prince Gort&uiakoff is said to have somewhat surprised the young Czar not long ago. The old diplomatist hud alwuys announced that lie should retire nfier twenty-five years' service.

Instead of this the old Chancellor sent a sentimental reply, expressing a hope that he would soon be well enougli to resume active sen-ice. Tlic Emperor was angry, but ven tured to say nothing, and since then seems to be in search of a pretext, which the wily diplomatist will beu are of furnishing.

The story is that the President sent for MacVeagh and quietly authorized him to go to work in the Senate to defeat Chandler, tell ing him that he should be very well contented with Chandler's rejection. Since the adjournment Blaine has made a formal complaint to the Presi dent that the Attorney-General was guilty of a gross breach of propriety in exerting his Influence in the Senate to prevent the confirmation of one of the President's nominees. Mr. Garfield appeared to be very much shocked, but asked "Are you sure that iIc!'Uwork against Chandler?" "lam cr 'jvii I - jitv&.

Ontrbt to Keep Oat of It. President Garfield ought to keep his administration rigorously out of the Albany fight. It is none of his funeral, not cvenas to furnishing the mourners; but, like most men who take one wrong step, Garfield's blunder in appointing Bob crtson to a place already well filled by Merritt drags his name and influence into a quarrel in which he should have no concern. It was bad enough last January, when Garfield's name was kicked around Albany as pledged to do this or that by superserviceable friends; but to permit himself to be forced into this fight by steps wholly wrong and a' policy wholly unjustifiable will be worse. Very possibly he may not now be able to keep out. His friends will go into it, and they will drag him in. BJainc, who h all along wanted a chance to fight Conkling in his own State, has it at last, and Garfield will be fortunate if he does not come out of this fight with every New York appointment mortgaged for political services in a factious quarrel.

These arc hard terms, and are doubtless campaign slanders. Seriously speaking, why should not the greatest man in whose veins English blood has coursed be honored hy an English epitaph. Will Get Over IIK Head. A gentleman who has known Garfield for a long time, and who for many things really likes him, said: "I'm afraid Garfield will prove a swimmer in water too deep, with stroke too feeble, and breath too short, and will have to go under or accept resouo from anybody who will go to his aid. lie will then have to accept such terms as the rescuer imposes." A Xeiv Order. The San Francisco Fost sarcastically says that a movement is on foot iu that citv for the If, in their desire to uphold the ! organization of a t-ccieiy lobe called the "Indepead- cnt Order oi. Acquitted Murderers." The list of members, it says, will be very large and influential. To the Editor of The Republican: What short memories people have some of themsat least! In 1876 the Democracv, lead by that astute schemer, Samuel J. Tilden, had iuii unu enure possession oi every department ot the New York Slate government. All the vast patronage ofthc canal, insurance, and banking de partments was in thcands of his creatures. By their aid he carried the State against Hayes by a majority that was numbered by tens of thousands, and it seemed as if the State would remain Demo cratic for the next twenty years, and New York is a State that counts soma in the Electoral College. Only one man and his friends did not despair of retrieving the fortunes of the Republican party in the Empire State, and that man was Roscoe Conk ling. THOUGH HOEXDED AND FLOUTED, and stabbed by Hayes and his fine-haired and feather-headed camp-followers, who raised a howl against him as a sort of quid iiro quo for the con tents of the executive slop-pail, Roscoe Conkling, true to his party in defeat as well as in success (pity his defamcrs cannot say as much!) quietly sot to work to break the hold of Sam Tilden on the great Empire State, the votes of which he intended to use to secure himself a renomination for the Presidency with. By the aid of his Stalwart friends he first secured the most thorough organi zation of the party ever seen in that State. Disre garding the sneers and stabs from Washington, Conkling and his friends worked patiently on. THEY WERE AIDED, OF COURSE, by the division in the ranks of their opponents, but they also had to contend with a serious split in the ranks of their own party, as was shown by the difference between the vote cast for Governor Cornell and the rest of our State ticket.

Mr. Henry says that General Grant spoke to him in the highest terms of Senator Conkling' before his departure for Mexico. The General contrasted Conkling with other Senators who were daily im portuning him for personal favors. "Conkling," he said. " never sought but one appointment from me, and that was of a minor character. He visited me freely, but gave no advice unless I asked for it. When Senator Conkling called on me I used to tell j him that such and fcnch men were pressing such ! and such men for ofliee in his State, and ask him concerning their qualifications. He gave me his the laws. This was lauded I opinions. He always seemed to be governed by JS'ew York Trilune. Chica"-o TV"at "e tnousnt v,'as Cest for tne interests of the I Antitirn- Hie nnnrnnT crnui ... v...:....3 .... . . with that of many other Senators. They were governed mainly by personal considerations; they were plausible and importunate. Conkling was the soul of honor, and apparently had the inter ests of tne country, which were my interests, solely at heart." Such were the words of General Grant as given by Mr. John F. Henry. Henry used to occupy a cottage at Long Branch next to Grant's. Mr. Henry points to the fact that Conkling signed the WinJom report on transportation as evidence that he is in sympathy with the anti-monopolists. Sas Va i Sun. The above testimony ought to outweigh the coarse lies of those who pretend that the New York Senator is a patronage- For The Rktcbijcax.

Letter from ex-Journal Cleric Barclay. To the Editorof The Republican: While I may not have been in very perfect accord with you in the matter of the New York collectorship, I feel that I shall not appeal to you in vain for the privilege of a small pace in your paper on a subject personal to myself, and in regard to which I am sure I will have your full sympathy. Ordinarily I have passed over in silence all allusion to myself in the newspapers, but finding myself, within the last few days, alluded to in the. telegraphic correspondence of several of the most prominent papers of the coun try, and of my own political faith, with a malevo lence only equaled by mendacity, I cannot refrain from asking to be heard. The first that met my eye was in the New York Tribune of the 19thin stant, containing what is called "A Little Story," but which could only be properly designated as a big lie, wherein I am represented as having been "discharged" from theservice of the House of Rep resentatives, going over to Sanderson's with my old official associate,Dr.Mehafiey,and then in a maudlin and most idiotic manner discoursing together as to the impossibility of th e House being able to get along without us, and thus exaggerating our own im portance; and a Republican Senator, whose name is withheld, is the alleged authority for this " little story." Now, what are the facts as to my retire ment as journal clerk of the House? Simply that I resigned my office because I felt I could not with any self-respect retain it longer under the then and present Clerk of the House, and a beautiful speci men of a chief of tbe clerical force of the National House of Representatives he has proven himself to he. So far as claiming, as alleged, that I alone could fill the office, there are numerous living witnesses of the fact that I have alwavs held that f there was no office, including my own, under sufficient reason given for selling.
