Yesterday In police court two of
tb« proprietor* of drinking place* in
the City of Wheeling whose places
were described In an article appearing
In the Sunday New*, w*-re fined each
•20 00 and costa for violations of the
city ordinances. Th« significant part
about this transaction I* that the evi
dence on which these men were lined
wa* found by private citizens, acting
upon their own Initiative; that the cn
tire cast! wa* prosecuted by private
citizen*, and evidence secured and pre.
Sented In court without the assistance
of the Police Department to the extent
of lifting a finger or securing a word
of evidence
The offenses charged in these pros
ecution* have been carried on morn
or less openly In the City of Wheeling
for months past. It Is a notorious fact
that some of the wine rooms huve
been run In open and flagrant viola
tion of the law. The difficulty of draw
ing the line between a restaurant anil
saloon properly conducted and one im
properly conducted Is recognized, yet
there are well defined rule* which any
Intelligent person ran understand, and
there are well defined violations which
•very observer can identify
If this evidence has been so easy
to secure, why has it not been secured
by the Police Department of the fttv
of Whieling before this? That is the)
essential question li violations of the
law are so open and flagrant that even
a private citizen can secure proof of
their going on. why have they been
tallowed to go on"

j I natl Commercial, was for twenty rive yearj o:.e of the country's rad
•t'U Journal.«ts. and a stanch friend and confidant of James O BlaiZM
I once ask'd Mr Halstead if he thought that Mr Hlalne had he beet
the K. publican nominee for President ir. lk*8. would have been elected bt
a larger p.urality than was given to Oenerai Benjamin Harrison
Tnd< ubtedly.- Mr Hils'ead replied. And 1 am also persuaded thai
It *v Mr Blaine's own conviction that If he were the candidate of the Itc
publican party he would be e.ected President which largely influenced hlrr
to say peremptorily to hi* friend* that he mu*t not h*
nominated for the presidency In !»*« I am certain tha'
Mr Blaine was convinced that If he wer,- e'erted Presl
dent hi* health would •uroumb. and tha1 the anxieties
• mbarrussmenta and difficulties of the office would inteti
Hlfy the organic trouble which only he and a few of h;
In’lmate friends knew had seized hold of him
"As Interesting a personal Interview aa I ever had.
Mr. Halstead continued, "wa* one which took place wttt
Mr Blaine In the early spring of ISk* He wa* then it
FJurope, it was at hi* tetnporarv home In Italy that I me
him. In the course of the Interview Mr Blaine used tw.
expressions which. I think, very graphically and conclsclj
epitomize his own relation to the presidential nomln.ttloi
and also the manner In which the nomination of tlener*
i had been asked by some of my Ohio friends, who knew that I wm
making a brief trip to Europe, to see Mr Blaine and cautiously sound hirr
so that it might be known whether or not he would permit hl» name to gt
before the Republican National Convention at Chicago in June. Mr Blaine
knew instantly after I began to apeak that I had been commissioned to leart
how he felt regarding the presidential nomination
HaUtead.' he said, with his characteristic earnestness and emphasis
. 'you mar tell h!| mv friends that I must tits appear as a candidate before the
Republic at, convention If 1 find any movement In that direction I shal
| certainly write a letter which wrlll put a stop to It. You can tell my friend:
that 1 have said to you that If they go so far as to Ignore my wishes and
l-laee me in nomination I shall peremptorily decline to accept the notnlna
[ tion
"I asked him why he felt so strongly opposed to the nomination
t e. ’Halstead.' he said. 'I don't want to go down into history as a Tlch
| borne Claimant for a Republican presidential nomination You know rd
I course.- Mr Halstead continued, 'about the desperate attempt to claim'the
Tlchborne estate and title In England by a man who pretended to be
the h.ug missing heir. Roger Tlchborne For a time the- words Tlchborne
claimant- were frequently used to signify that a person was making con
|llnued an<l desperate claims for some valuable thing or other
"A few moments later Mr Blaine epitomised bv a single word the whole
story of th*» nomination of Oenerai Garfield for the presidency m ivs.i i
had said to Mr Blaine that »omp Republicans wondered whether the ohm
delegation to the Republican National Convention in lkkk might not really
be In favor of the nomination of Governor Joseph II For»ker for Preside'
i Instead of John Sherman, for whom the Ohio delegates had been Instructed
i to vote Gulck as thought Mr Blaine answered
•• -No. that can t be done the miracle of Garfield's nomination can never
be repeated In our day Foraker is a young man. nn able man. a popular
i in an lie will make a good Senator and some dav he is likely to be the Re
publican candidate for President. But as 1 said to vou. the mirac le of Gat
fle.d s nomination cannot be duplicated in our day •
"Mr Itlalne. of course, referred to Hie fact that the Ohio delegation tn
, the Republican Nutlonal Convention of Isko was requested to vote, as a uni'
i for ,he nominal io* of John Sherman General Gartteld was the chairman
of that delegation He made ;l great speech placing Sherman tn nomination
blit after mane ballots Sherman was abandoned and Garfield was nominated
‘hat was what Mr Blaine termed the miracle of Garfield's nomination "
