Grant was in dorscel lit tho polls In 1872, against tho com bined forces of tho Democracy nnd tlio now crop of doughfneed and soreboadod Ropubll. runs beaded by Orcelcy, Sumner & Co., gavo romo Icmpornry check to Iho kukltixmiraud trsln purllom nl tho south. Serious troubles Ihcrc wero lnl!72-'73 In Alabama, Arkansas, Trxns, mid Louisiana, but the pcoplo had mado Ilic pouerollha nation to respected that tho President's rcsponso to tho cull of a stato for nld to suppress domestic lolcnco w as accepted ns determining, at least for the time, tho legiti macy of tho statu goTcrnuicnt making tho cull. Prosecutions under Iho enforcement acts had, Iho President raid In Ills mcisago in 1872, "tended greatly to Iho repression of such dis orders." Ho credited "n great majority of tho tcoplo In nil parts ur Iho country" with favor lng "the- lull enjoyment by nil classes of per sons ol thoso rights to which they nro entitled under tlio constitution anil tlio laws." Tilo psidonlng power was 11n.1l liberally In tho liope, hu said, "that clemency In such cases would trntiiulllro Iho piibllo mind, and to test Iho vlrtuo of ihat )olley." Vet ho warned otltmlcrs Ihat this must not bo construed as In illcatlng any change In his "detcrmluntlon to eulorco with rigor" Iho enforcement acts, "so long as Iho conspiracies nnd coinbtnallons Unrein named dl'lurl, thu pcato of the. coun try" Hu expressed an earnest hope that ho inlcht ncur again bo obliged to execute tho eiiforccmcnt ails, LOl'IslANA. Apolitical duel In louUlana,ln which re luming bimrds. Injunctions, legislatures, and Impiaihmciits were tho weapons, rased thero for iho two months following tho election In 1MH, but was composed, lor ihctline, by the Intervention of the President In supiiort of tho KclUgg government. Ho lnfurmed Congress, by special mcisago, of this action, and mid: ''1 am extremely nuxlnus lo avoid any appear unto ot undue Interference In stuto uitalrs, and If Congress dllkrs from roe as to what ought to be done, I rcsiccifully urgu its Immediate do rlslon lo thateficct," At tho famotlmo ho laid that If no action should bo taken by Con trcsa ho would Iccl obliged, as far as ho could by tho cxi rclso of legitimate authority, to put nu i ml lo thu unhappy controversy by contin uing lo support Iho Kellogg government, which nlono bad even an appment right to repre sent tho majority of the people. Congress laueii to act, inns giving mo assent which silonco Implied, Hutnltliough Congress tiokuonclloibnrcportwnsmndobylhoSenato conimlltuo on privileges and elections which declared that lo recognize tho pretended gov ernment ofMcEncry "would bo recognizing a gov ernment based on fraud. In dcllanco of Iho w Isbcs and Intention of the voters of t ho state," lu view, however, or Iho gravo Irregularities unrounding tho count and declaration of tho Mile, earned by tho revolutionary acts of tho ttipportcraof McEiicry, tho Senato passed a bill Movldluglor a new election. All the Demo crats voting, except one, voted against tho bill. It was never acted upon In the Itnuso. 'Iho incssago referred lo was dated Feb. 23, 1673. A week later tho forty-second Congress expired. A llttlemorolhanamonthlalcr, April 13, iho Colfax massnero took place, at which more than sixty ltcpubllcaus wcro killed ivhllo encaged In protectlngn Republican parish Judgo am! therm Irom being driven from otllco by n mob. 1 his was follow ed by such resistance to Iho state authorities that, upon the call of tho koi ei nor, tho President, on Iho 13th of May, issued bis proclamation commanding tho In surgents to disperse. This put somo check to ot en and armed resistance to the stato authority. One would think that In a history orcoi guts, covering this period, tho author could iiU well avoid somo references to n messago Irom Ihul'rcbldcnt, announcing n revolution lunetato. Its suppression by federal power, nnd requesting utoiigrcsslonal.dcclsonns to tho Uglllmncy of tho acting itntu government. Hut Mr. lllalno passes by It without Iho slight est mention. This was because ho could nut ntlord tocnll tho attention of Iho Republicans ot Die country to his own utlltiido at tho tlmo. Tho lro was too thin even lor his rapid skat lng, nnd ho prudently went around, llenco tho iiccctiity for an honest review, to supplement history too hastily written the last lirrunucAN Horse put one. The forty-third Congioss assembled In Do cc inter, lr.,3. Tho namo ul Grant was then n poti cr In the south, equal to an nrray of n mil lion of men. This was because behind hlin were tho phstcal power and resources of tho ncrtli, which had conquered rebel lion, and (topped Andrew Johraon from risiorlng Its puwer. When that Congress iidjnurncd Its llrst session In the tuiiimorofli74, Iho power of tbo mighty roily ot tho I'llli u was broken, It had been l.itraj ed by falso ltcpubllcaus, who wero elos pcrntcly resolied to destroy Grant, In order to iniikc room lor themselves ttid'r uhu'enr politi cal hui ii r they might have to rally. Blaine's Investigation of Ames, Garfield & To., In tho Credit IMoblllcr mutter, had been heralded ns conclutlvo prool of tho rottenness of Iho Id publican party. Note A Irlcnd has called my attention to nu error In my last chapter. Ames nnd Brooks escaped expulsion by n small vote, and wcro .objected to a vote of censure only.) l.llls II, Roberts had caused It to ho proven that customs ofllcers had recoiled largo sums, ns allowed by law, for bringing to Justice Mcallhy offenders ngnlnst tlio revenuo law, nnd this conduct not of tho rogues, but of tho officers who drew upon them tho halter of thu law w as treated as additional prool ot tho corruption of the Republican party. In other words, tho enemies of the Republican admin istration had thrown mud at caeh u'h-f which had stuck, and therefore that administration must bo oicrthmun. Such was tbclogloot those who saw Blalno smirch Garllcld, and then followed them both in a raid against Grant. SCANDAL AS A TOLITICAL rOItCE. Tho country was assured by theso patriots that, rotten us they declared iho Republican I nrty to be, they would put It lo Its purgation. 'I hey asked tho people Co glvo them tho load, nnd to put down tho wicked, corrupt, and despotlo Grant. T hey assured them that by rent Industry, nnd strict and cxcltisivo atten tion to that business, they would bu able to get c i cr body hut themselves out of the party, and that then It would bo pure and honest. Too preat dallies In tho cities fed tho morbid publio nppctlto forecandul thus created, and when the day arrived for tho congressional elections In 1874, thousands of men, not greatly attached to parly, but who had usually voted tho Repub lican ticket, gave their i otes to tho Democracy. The men who led In this work wero divided between tho knaves who wero In league with the then meek and paralyzed Democracy, for another coalition like that of the Urecley cam paign, and the fools who bad not senso enough to know that Republican defeat meant Demo cratic success, Tho non-partisan voto, with Republican proclivities, went away from tho party that sear for tho samo reason that tho man refused to buy butter from tho old woman who assured him that it must bo clean, for It had taken hcrandhcrthrcedaughtcrsall night lo pick tho hairs out of It. Tho loud assurances of the brassy and fraudulent Republican re formers, Ihat tho weeding out of thieves was iho only business tho party could get tlmo to attend to, did not attract the voters of 1871. Tho roan who crlos "slinking fish" gets no customers And so tho great party of Union, Liberty, nnd Equal Rights went down. It was no more responsible for the coses of misconduct now nnd then brought homo to Individuals than Is tho national banking system for tho thieves It lias contributed to Canadian society, or tho Christian Church for iho crlm con cases In which n few of lis clergymen havo llgurcd. Grant's administration bad been vindicated In every test to which It had been subjected, and tho wholesale defamation of tho party, by icandal-inongcrlng congressmen nnd editor, liccnmo necessary to thu Grant-bators, becauso Iheonlywayto ''beat Grant" was by beating tho party which bud refused any other leader the last mniE months op iieh'uucan 1 OWMt. When tlio iraoko and stench of tho political battle hud clt arid away In November, 1871, it was found that tho Democrats had about 70 majority In tho next House if Representatives, lint tbe Republican Ilouso ;cl llvlug.wlth Its majority of nearly ft hundred, was to meet the following month, With a Sena' three-fourths Republican, and a faithful Kxceitlvo ready to ro-opcralo In uny Just and vlgonus measures for the roalntcnaiu a or the coiistllirjon and tho laws, tho lorly-lhlrdCuiigrcsshad tlmo months In which to put Its house In order nntto repair tomo of iho blunders and supply souo of tho omissions of the preceding session. Alluding lo this time, Mr, llhiltio says "Tho Republican leaders took warning, and arreod that beforo losing control of tlio lower hoiso, they would securo" What? I.tlo, prsp erty, and Iho lawful rulo of iho majorities 41 stales wOstrato nnd blcudlna under ton feet if nrmcdroioititlonundnnarchyf No: hut "tho pair-ago or an act for Iho resumption of epocio pinmeiit," But, on the mora momentous questions of tho rights of citizens, and government by tho people, bought with tlio blood of bravo men, ond tho tears of widowed women, "the Republican leaders" plead In vain for help fiom thoscoroot halt-breeds led against tho ' parly by lllalno anil (larlleld, and Hnwloy and Halo. These men scorned to bo ns useful, nt lhal critical lime, to Iho lawbreakers of the south, In this second rebellion, as tho northern copperheads had been In their llrst one. WHAT THE NEW lllOl'DS'tOlTEKHEAIMKNEW, They knew that 011 tho very day of tho ripening nt Ihat session of Cougross (Dec, 7, 1871) Iho fearful massacre nt Vlckstmrg bad horrified mankind They know that It bod followed as tho logical sequence of tho methods adopted lor carrying tho clccllon-ln Ihat city In thu preceding August. They knew that "tho Mississippi plan" was ntmed revolution, seizing, nt whatever cost of Hie was necessary, tho political control which It could not command through n majority of the i otes. They knew that the avowed purposo of tho whlto lino Democracy r tho south was to mako the fifteenth amendment n dead letter, and Ihat Ihcy wero as determined In roslstlng a free ballot, by force of nrms whenever nn ws rnry, as they had been In resisting tho author liy 01 me union irom iwn n inw. They knew, by tho tidings dally received from iho committees sent to vlcksburg, Mobile, and New Orleans, ns well ns from other sources, that the political rlghtsnf Republicans, or whatctcr color, In certain or tho southern Hales, wero as lllllo respected as Ihcy wcro before tho war, nnd ns dependent on national prelection ns they bad Lien during tho war. Ihcy knew 111111,011 thu lltli or tlio preceding Etpuinbcr, thu oovurnment or Louisiana, which had been In power and recognized by Iho President, with Iho assent or Congrcs, and by nil thu world except Iho Whlto Ia-imuc. fur marly two scars, had been overthrown by ribclslnnrms. They knew that tho streets of New Oilcans had on that day been stained by tho blood of tuct-ty or moro iconic, Including a number of the police slain In tho defense of that lawful gotirnmctit. They knew that this flagrant domestic vio lence had bicn suppressed by thocouslltutlonal action of Iho President, Invoked by tho slate, and (list If ho had lulled In this swum duty ho would halo Ik'cti guilty of n hlghcrlmu for which hu would haiobcen subject to Impeach mint. They knew this Fcptcmbcr revolt had been preceded In August by Ihu Cuushalta massacre, when six northiin nung men hud been mur dircd In cold blond, tiller having been prom lied safe conduct from tho thriving lltllo town their capital nnd enterprlso bad built, nnd Irom which they had been banished by tho edict of a blood-thirsty mob, becauso they held M ttv offices under tho Rcniibllcati crnvernnr nf (hcrtatc. They knew that Judge Woods of Iho United Slates circuit court (now n Justlcoot tho Hu lire mo Court or the United Slates) bad, In his charge ton Jury In New Orleans, In March or Ihat scry yi ar.gli en a statement of thu Colfax mnssniro of Iho preceding April, ns follows: Ho laid that ho would only statu aomool tho facts ogrcid on by both sides. Ho Invited cor rection by coumel If ho should Inadvertently stole as a concidcd Tact nny matter that was disputed. He declared thatoflho negroes who dt Undid the otbeers of Iho law, ngalust a mob which loiiL'ht to drivo them out, "most of thoso who wero not killed were taken prisoners." Thlili'Fivcii wcro taken prisoners, kept under punrd until dark, and then I'd out fun tuii i Ml ihcl. The dead bodies ot nil tho killed wereleltunlmrUd by their murderers. They wire burltd Iwo dais later by n deputy mar sbal and another tenon. Judge Woods Slid: "1 heio persons found llfty-nlno dead bodies. Tiny showed pistol shot wounds, tho iriif vtnjirili In tho luad, nndmvf ni7io (11 Uiebtick if tie litatl," Only two ubllo men wcro in jured. Such wes tho condition ol nmilrs when Con cuss met In December, 18! I Such worn Iho Inns, rw well known to Mr. lllalno and hlsllttlo (nterlo of followers ns tho Met that ho was speaker of tho House. Tho President In his message pave Congrc is cry full Informailnn on the condition or affairs In the south, and tho press or the country teemed Willi dally tils latchisonthesubjirt, Rut Mr. lllalno llnds no roim In his history for any word conccrninglt. He Is as silent concerning tho bloody deeds of ins law-uiiaKingniuesoi mat ncriou asaroiuo Plans or their viitlms. It was nnothcr sceno In Ilic drama orwhlch hu could not safely siieak. Attain, hu had but to step on tho leo to go through; and so again, perforce, ho must dodge. IH. IILAINF.'B ALLIANCE WITH THE DEMOCRATS. ThcplalnKngllshor this Is that Mr, lllalno serietl Iho Whlto I-caguo Democracy of Louis iana, and their fellows In other states, on ctcry vital question from tbo beginning to tho end of the session. When so much or tho president's messago ns related to southern nflalrs was rclerrcd to a special committee of icien, ho apjiolntcd four for tho Democrats and three lor tho Republicans. Tho four lniido a report whitewashing tho Whlto Leagues, and going further even than was lucissary for their purposes In assuring tho House that they wcro what "Kit," tho "Ar kansas trnielcr," calls "perfect gentlemen," Only tho Republicans wero capable of doing wroug.nndlncnpabloofdolngright. Iiitliclrm port they declared that it was a violent assump tion for the Republicans to say that cnnughcol orcd votirs to chango tho result had been pre vented from voting at the Into election by tho recollection orthcColtnx and Coushutta Kill ings, and other riots, "which occurred years before." Tbe statement that thev mado run- such claim was ns false ns that tbo "killings" named occurred "years before," Tho Collax mastacru occurred about n -, car and n half bo lore, viz., April 13, 1873, and tboCoushatta roas sacro occurred only a little moro than two months bclore, -ilz., August 23, 1871. This un due eagerness to servo n bad cause, by gross lnlstnlemcuts of fact, mado their remaining statements unworthy of belief. Tho report was signed by Charles Foster, William Walter Phelps, Clarksou N, rotter, and Samuel Mar siiuuiwo democrats, nnu iwo assistant ucm oerats. Tho minority of tho committee Messrs, Hoar, 1'rjc, and W heeler presented a report wholly at vnrlanco with that or tho Whlto Lcnguo majority, and In accordance with tho lllilcnco, ns well ns with tho current nnd es tablished hbtory of tho limes. They gave, as their (oniluslona from the facts, that tlio white mill's parly In Loutdaun was deter mined In tako thu state goi ernment by torco ond fraud, nml to elu so w ould uot stop nt mur iHr, fraud, or dill war. Ttey recommended Iho recognition of tlio Kellogg government. They reeked the history or thu numerous po litical masraercs since Iho war, and vouched for the substantial truth of Gen, Sheridan's statement whloh had so lnllamcd the unholy alliance. This Indorsement of tho Whlto Leaguers, by Iho majority of Mr, Illaluo's committee was, 01 course. In harmony wlththoobject for which Hit v wire appointed, viz., lo check the rising demand nf sincere Republicans throughout thu country for energetic measures for the sarety nl Republicans In Die south, It was Intended lei sallsly as many as possible, lint, of the total depravity or nil southern Rcpubllcnus black and white, and second, of tho Christian meek ncss und brotherly loioof all Democrats, to whoso kind rorbcaranco Iho wlciccd Republi cans wcro Indebted ror their lives, which really Ihcy wcro not clearly entitled lo. This was Iho Republican gospel, according to James O. Maine, out or tho mouths ofhlstwotrn-ted followers nnd spokesmen, Charles Foster, ot Ohio, nnd Wni. Waller Phelps, of New Jcrsov, and llkewlso of tho New York Tribune. Hut not a word can bo found In Mr. lllalno's his tory of anysuchconimlttcc.nr any such reports. Tho Vmiffrcttlmal Jteeonl is better authority. THE NEW 10HK "TltlJU'NE" AS A WHITE LEAGUE OltOAN, This Is a proper placont which to nrrcsttbo render's attention to Iho ntlltudo at that time ol the New York Tribune, edited thou as now by Whltclaivltcld. Tbo ordinary outpourings of Democratlo neivepupers lu tho south cad been weak and Insipid ns compared with tho ravings or this shameless apostate. Ho could uot restrain his rage when any hlamo was laid at Iho door or southern whites for tho murder ol Republicans, no prated, lu set Democratlo phrase (Jon. 0, 187.1), of tho "Ill-feeling between the races engendered by a partisan (f) admin istration of Iho stato government In Missis ilppl," nnd of "Iho colored pcoplo Incited to excesses and the whlto people goaded to Inju dicious (7) means of redressing their wrongs." Bo Abel goaded Cain to his Injudicious act so goads the lamb tho butcher who leads him to tho slaughter, Tho Vlcksburg massacre, thou under Investigation, was tho subject or tho Tit luiic't comment on ' Injudicious means." On tho samo day thu Tribune, was furious wllhrago at tho news from New Orleans. An event had occurred Ihoro which was destined lo play an Important part In Iho discussions of the winter. It drew a Hue between tho two contending political lorccs of tho day. On tho ono sldo nl that lino wero tho southern rev olutionists, unable, as in 18dl, to control by ballots, nnd determined, ns then, to control by bullets rnthcr than submit to adi erso majori ties at tho polls. With them stood men, still claiming In bo Republicans, but who wero no moro worthy of Iho name than wcro tho cop perheads of tho war of being classed as Union men. WH1TEIAW BEID, THE DOl'QHFACE LEADEn, Tho leader of this class was Whllclaw Held, Let no man deny the leadership to him. Ho had been admitted luto full lellowshlp with tho Democratic party at tho last preceding presidential election, and had succeeded tho last Democratlo presidential nominee as editor of tho Tribune, which had been Iho leading organ of tho Democracy lu Ibat campaign. It wustoolato lor hlmtogag at nuylhlng tho foulhern Democrats might do. 110 had no foothold unless ho could show that nil talcs ot southern outrages wero faho. Ho could not shako oirhls political partners of 187J. llut ho had a natural desire to liiducotho Democracy again to accept a candidate, of Republican antecedents, in order that, lu Ihu event ol success, ho might bo near Iho throne. To this end ho plunged wildly In to the support of lllalno and nil others w ho lor any eausuwero nntogonlstlo to Grant. Ho under took to recast political panics, nnd 10 rnaua cuo In which "Liberal" Republicans who bolted In 187!andbair-brocdswho sympathized wllh but dime! not Join them, should lead, and tho Democratlo paily should follow. Ills vast conceit prevented ulm from understanding, cien alter Iho tidal wave or 1871, that tho Re liublli nn parly could become so weak that the Democrats would need uclthcr him uor Iho WlMTt. lilalue, (larlleld, Halo, and Hawlcy wcro his rolloners. They wcro 1101 as blatant nor as bold, llut Ihcy enjoyed his coulldenco, and did nothing by reason of which the wing of his frkndihln mlcht moult a leatbor. it la becamo of this known tio hetucen Mr. Bbilno and Iho 7) Ibuiie at that period, and becauso as tho presiding officer or tho Homo ho was ablo o mold making speeches, that I lay so much rets upon Iho utterances ol that paper, and ii)oii Its statements as 10 hUattiludo toward tho Di-nocracy. THE ini'ISIANA IMIUIOOI.IO. Tfcs event nt New Orleans, to which I al ludes, beforo this digression, was this: Tho Uatutt regulating thu organization of tho nsscinl.) in that stato is precisely analogous tiMlitiiif congress which controls tbo or ganlzai oii-if tho United btoles Ilouso of Rep resentative.

Then they voto on bis right to a scat, and from their decision tho only appeal Is In tho right ot revolution. On tho Mh of January, 1875, tho ccril(lcs.tcd and 1 nrollcd members of tbo Iiulslana lissom "-,, wim iiiuuiu cicrK prcspung, wcro vio U litis; Interrupted and Its political complexion (hanged by the forolblo Introduction of flvo pirsotis elalmlng seats but having nocortlll cale s.

Then nlargo number of spec tators suddenly turned down tho lapels of their coais,upon which had been previously fastened bluo badges, with tho words "Asslsunt Her-gcont-ot-Atms" printed on them.

Gen. tihcrldan, who nsstimed command of the Department of tho (luir that day, behiii called upon by the stato government tnti.il whalvlolcncohaddono In unlawfully seating Wlttr, responded. nnd upon his demand, tho live Intruders left Iho assembly chamber, and 11 ins nil me seal nu nan usiirpcu, Tho rago of tho balllcd conspirators knew no bounds. Their performance was but it eon tlnuatlonor tho rebellion of Sept.

Rut they affected n great horror nt ihu preseuco of federal military authority In n legislative hall-utiless, ns was tbe raso In tho morning, it was Invoked by themselves. When they called nn Do Tro brlandlbey did not expect Iosco him folloivod by Sheridan, "An' I had known thou had it been so cunning of- fenco I ne'er had chal lenged thee," said Sir Audrow Aguccheek, Consistency, however, never troubles quarrel somcieoplc Thu 7ti(mnbccamo atnncetho rabid organ ol the While I-ingucrs. To It enmu thonilso and sensational dispatches by whlcb northern sentiment u us to bu manufactured, Tno llrst ono was n loud outcry, but It was greatly out howled In the editorial comments. "Tho great istnutrogo Hint has ever yet lu tho history of tho country been practiced upon tho citl-eus of n sister "ihlscrownlug Iniquity nf Hie red era! administration;" "tho hcol of military dcsroilsm;" "Iho nrmy or tbo United States tiled to break up tho legislature or n sovereign state." Theso nro fair specimens. It Instituted tho following comparison In an editorial of Jin. n. between Grant, the tyrant, nnd Samuel J. Tlldcti. tho patriot; "Gen.

On tho 6II1 of January there appeared In tho 7Vittinc a call for n meeting to denounce Grant's alleged tyranny. It was signed by William M, Kvnrts. John Kelly, Whltclaw Held, AugustusSchcll, and nearly two hundred others similarly assorted. Tho call declared that 'u leclsbituro of n sister sbito neace. nbly nsscmbtcel had been broken up nnd dispersed by federal troops noting under orders from the President of tho Uultcd States." This was falsoalt through. It was not n legislative body after tho live outsiders had been lorccd Into it, but a mob. It was not peaceably assembled, but In a tumult and with lorceofarms. It was not broken Into, nnd tho President so far from giving any "orders," knew nolhlngnboutlllinul II hadall transpired. This mild and conservative call also de clared that this prevention ol tho success ol a violent trick was "tho most marked attack upon Iho right of American citizenship which has been mndoslnco tho establishment of tho government," How docs this call now read to Mr, Lvarts, and to tho men who sent him to thoFcuatc, nnd to those who rend Whltolaw Rcld's llcrco attacks lu tbo TViouiicou'Tbo solid south." THREATS OP ASSASSINATION AOAINST OltANT. Tho blood-curdling editorials of tho Tribune and tho Inflammatory call for a revolutionary meeting worked up a fever of excitement nmongtho haters or Republicanism and tho haters of Grant. Tho assassination of I'resl dent Grant w as urged as 11 sullnblo remedy for tho tyranny under which tho country was Buffering becauso Wlrtz had not been allowed to scire Iho speakership lu Louisiana. This atrocious sentiment found expression In tbo reading columns of tho Tribune. THE "TRIBUNE" ADVERTISES fOR AN ASSASSIN, A letter was addressed to Keillor Held, advo cating Grant's assassination, and ho printed It In 11 conspicuous place, opposlto the editorial page, In tho TriLuue of Jan, 0, 1875. it was In these words; "I1AV0NETS AND LEaiSLATIOS'." "To THE RniTon OF THE Tnilll-NE .Sr .

Nast mado this the Ihcmo of ono of his best cartoons In 7tricr's H'tcUi of Jan, au, 1875, In which Held Is represented as 11 street-walking advertiser, with this assassination letter sus pended In front of him. Underneath are tho words, "Adicrtlslng ror an n-sas.'lu of tho I'reslaentof tho United States." Ifthlsplay lng with II ro had resulted In tho murder of Gen. Grant, Whltclaw Held and tho writer of tho Idler would undoubtedly havo been hung as parties to tho crlino. Asio Rcld's real feeling In tho matter, It Is difficult to believe Hint nny man lu his senses would havo publicly launched such n sugges tion, to bo seen of dcsperalo and oxcltcd par tisans, unless ho hail been lu sympathy with it. Gen. Grant refused to recclvo a call from Held after Arthur becamo 1 'resident, raying ton friend who urged It, nt (lie same lime snowing mm inu nuuio letter, "icionoi w autlo seo any man who ever wanted 1110 assaslnated." Ho probably hnd uot seen tho letter In lis day, as It seemed to him, at tbo tlmo referred to, n new revelation, Tho 7) iliunc defended Its publication of tho letter on Iho 12th of January, saying; "Wo published it ns wo do hundreds of other angrv communications from nil sorts of pcoplo, 011 all sorts of subjects, without comment, not deem lng It necessary." "Thoro Is a very angry reeling nt tho usurpation or power by Presi dent Grant, but nomanfn hU sober tenia ox pects or hope for nny remedy or redress for tho wrong except by tlio ordinary legal process." In next day's lssuo "Cnssltis" was given spaco lu tho Tribune tor a lllug at Senator West for objecting on tho floor ol 1)10 United States Senato to tho President's nssassluatlon, and for a sneer nt tho "bloody shirt " Tho sub ject wns then dropped.

Tho Kvarls-Kclly.Itcld Schcll meeting to denounce Grant was held at Cooper Iusiltuto Jan, 11, and was appropriately addressed by llclmont, Wlekhnm, Wm, K. Dodge, and Wm. SI. Kmrts. Rcld was n vlco president. A telegram was read from McISncry, tho Demo cratic gubernatorial claimant lu Louisiana, promising that "our peoplo will not bo goaded Into conflict with the United ktiUea twom t" Also promising "to refute slanders of lien, bhcilefon," Soanlmnted wcro tbo speakers that when Grant's namo was mentioned thero wcro cries or "hang him," Sosayu n writer In llnrjier't WctUy, in Iho articlo accompanying Nast's cartoon of Held. OltANT'S RESPONSE TO THE SENATE. On tho 15th of January tho President ro (ponded lo n Senato Inquiry concerning tbo New Orleans allalr, nnd staled Ihat, although ho had not directed matters thero, "tho troops weic bound to act upou tho Judgment of tho commanding olllccr upon each sudden con tingency that arose, or await instructions which could only reach them after tho threatened wrongs had been committed which thoy wcro colled on 10 prevent." Ho said tho presence of the troops ''prevented bloodshed," and that "both parties appear to havo relied upon them as conservators of the publio peace," Ho com. mended all that Gon, Sheridan had dono. Hut tho reader of Mr, lllalno's book will search It In vnjn for any allusion to this stirring mes sage A LOUD CALL ON ULA1NE, On this samo day tho Tribune struck lis shrillest noto. It was four days after It had advertised for an assassin. Tho editor round it ucectsary to accelerate tho pace ofhlsfrlend lllalnc. Ilo was satlslled with his altitude. Ho did not doubt hlstldcllty totho cause of tho While' Lcoguers, for which tho Tribune was dally striking such sturdy blows, llut ho felt tho need of help. Ho said tho country was suffering for a man to heard tho tyrant Grant, '1 lien tbo following: "James G. lllalno, from tho speaker's chair, looks only through Ihu uvenue to tho mansion at tho end. And ho says uot a word. Opportunity lies under his hand, Hu might reach out nnd take. It with almost a single hearty utterance." That meant that Grant would carry tho heart of tho country with hlra. unless somo extra work was Immediately put In to stem tbo tide, "llut," continues the alarmed odltor, "cirn he hailietl Uiltd, (iiid fultiteil, ami muttered under, his IIIIEATH THE THINUS HE VAIIED NOT blMSAK aloud, until Iho opportunity has almost, per haps already, passed," How musical to tho car of Held must those muttcrlngsof lllalno havo been, which ho dared not speak aloud In Iho prcsonco of Re publicans. If only Iho southern whlto-lluers could hear thero, they would bo his at tho election of 1670, nnd Held would be tho great Warwick or his day, and lllalno his l'resleloutt Oh, anxious, scheming editor, could you not lash your friend up to your speed' What 11 dullard ho must havo been. Oh, Mr, Fnchw-bolh-ways lu that "Speaker's chair," havo you never ugrelted that you did uot then take Iho hap, und openly proclaim yourself nn tho stdu Willi which j ou wero plainly enough allied? llut the great political bolaucjr taught his Impatient friend beforo Iho session was through that h man could belong to two parties nt ono nnd the samo time darkening counsel In tho secret caucusof thoonoand guiding analllanoo with tho other on tho floor of tho Ilouso, over which ho presided. Held and lllalno continued fast friends, nnd on Ihcieth-llvo days after tho romarkablo revelation In tho Tribune or lllalno's secret treason against his party ho hail its editor nt dinner, enjoj lng thoo sweet utterances which tho plucky Plumed Knight ilaml not speak aloud. Tho fact thai ho thus entertained Held wax announced In a special dlspatcn to tho TViltin'of thonoxt morning evidently man assurance to Iho country that they wero in po litical accord, This has necessarily been so much extended that I must devote another chapter to tho his lory of tho Force bill, which a Joint Republican caucus agreed 011 and Mr, lllalno defeated.
