Illinois gave Garfield 10.000, Bltine 25.000;
in Michigan only 3,000 is left of the 53,000

Mart humorous incidents occurred on
battlefields. A Confederate Colonel ran
ahead of his regiment on Malvern Hill, and,
discovering that the men were not following
him as closely as be wished, he uttered a
fierce oath and exclaimed: "Ooma.onl Do

The same story Is told of an English Cap

Colonel at Waterloo; of a Prussian officer at
Koabacb. It most probably never occurred

THB MISCHIEF MAKES "AT W03Z.
The regular press telegrams informed us
that Mr. Hendricks had only been In con
versation for twenty-üvo minutes with Mr.
Cleveland on Saturday when they were in
terrupted by a delegation of business men,
who were anxious to pay their respects to
the newly elected President of the United
Eta tea. It does not appear that the Presi
dent and Vice President elect had any more
conversation at that time. Mr. Hendricks
returned to New York highly pleased with
is interview, and so expressed himself,
he Republican papers began to lie about
his interview very promptly. "It is said,"
ay these ready liars, "that Mr. Hendricks
returned fron Mr. Cleveland la a halt"
'In a huff" must be something dreadful, of
course. Notice again the wording of the
following insidious lie: "The meeting w
$aid to have resulted, if not in an open rup
ture, at least in a very decided coldness."
'It is said" covers a multitude of lies. The
Trench call "they sayM half a liar. We
wonder what they would call the author
of thia "special" that we are
referring to. Another gem la this badet of
eccentricities reads as follows: "There were
a number of stories current about the hotel
this evening concerning the trouble." Not
a bit of doubt about that, and it ia highly
probable that any or all of these stories were
quite as full of lies as ILe one telegraphed.
2hii chronicler of the gossip of the curb
stones and hotels of New York: had made
sufficient progress Sunday night to call the
interview between our distinguished leaders
"tLe trouble." If the interview had
lasted over twenty-five minutes, this
veracious, or perhaps voracious, reporter
would have had Mesari. Cleveland and Hen
dricks squarring off at each other - without
any regard to even the etiquette of the prise
ring. This Is a specimen of theswash"
that will load down the wires for weeks to
come. It is not difficult to understand it.
The Intent is to create divisions and misun
derstandings la the solid and . triumphant
hosts of the Democracy of the country.
"SEK WHEBE HIS OR ACE STANDS."
We do not hear of Mr. Blaine going to
church any more. DariBg the campaign he
grew into quite a regular attendant upon
the usasl religious services every Sunday
morning, and it was duly telegraphed, too,
over the country on Monday mornings.
Brother Alabaster, Dr. Burchard, and a large
portion of our religious friends were doubt
less highly delighted at the prospect of hav
ing euch a devout Christian (?) In the Presi
dential chair. To those of ua who know
something of Blaine it only suggested an
other link In the hypocritical chain that he
was weaving to lead by the nose certain
amiable persons who had already the ring in
position. The connection was readily made.
On the other hand, that poor, wicked and
naughty candidate on the Democratic ticket,
in the eyes of many, was supposed to be
bumming and carousing every Sunday, and
flirting with the Goddess of Liberty on
the State Capital at Albany. Bat
lo and behold, it leaked out the other day
very quietly that for years he had been at
tending fhurch regularly, 6V6ry Sunday
morning, with his sister, Mis Cleveland. It
waa so familiar a eight to see him and his
sister in their usual places at the Presby
terian Church, at Albany, that the cam
paign telegraph clerk in the Jay Gould office
there did cot think It neceesary to send It
over the wires.
We fear that Blaine's pretensions In this
direction were much like those of that roys
tering and royal old bummer, Elchard III.,
who always managed to be surprised between
two clergymen with prayer-book in hand
en til he had secured the British throne.
M3eo where his grace stands 'tweon two clergymen.

To stay blm from the fall of vanity:

As soon as Richard reached the throne of
England he threw away his prayer-book and
had no mora use for clergymen. As soon as
the recent canvass ended we heard no more
by telegraph ot Mr. Blaine attending church.
This is not a great matter. It was only one
of the isany hypocritical little wires that
the Republican managers had attached to
their candidate and stretched all over the
country into the homes of our people.
SOUTHERN VIEWS OF BLAINE' 3
POST MORTEM ASSAULT.
The Southern press would doubtless have
been justified in replying with scathing de
nunciation to Blaine's recent poet mortem
infamous speech at Augusta. The large ma
jority, however, of the editors south of the
line &eem to be disposed to treat Mr.
Blaine with more consideration, under the
circumstances, than is expected of them or
than he deserves.
The Savannah ( Q a. )Nes pats it ia this
shape: "Mr. Blaine hasn't as much reason
to find fault with the South as he thinks he
has. Admitting that in several of the
Southern States the negro voters are in the
majority and that they are all Republicans
it isn't the fault o the Democrats that they
didn't vete. Mr. Blaine, of course, thinks
it is, and charges that it is, but then he
doesn't know the truth. He has been mis
informed by those who are interested In
keeping him in ignorance of the facts. He
says that he would have carried New York
if the rain In the country districts had not
kept thousands of republicans away from
the polls. These Republicans didn't think
enough of him to brave the rain. In the
South there were thousands of negroes who
didn't care enough of him -and the Repub
lican party to rote. If there had been any
extraordinary efforts to get them to the polls
they would have voted ia much larger nam
bers than they did. Nobody kept them away
from the polls, and nothing was done to
neutralize their votes. In all the South
there wasn't a complaint that the negroes
were intimidated or that their ballots hadn't
the same effect as those of white voters.
They did rote by thousands ia every South
ern State, as is shown by the returns."
The Norfolk Virginian goes at trim with
considerable spirit, and remarks: "The rev
elation Mr. Blaine has made of hinxsel:
shows U3 indeed that the country had a nar
row escape from the domination of a bad
man, devoured by ambition and only alive
to the dictates of his own vanity or the de
mands of his own Imperious ambition. He
talked about the intention of the South to
'teizfl the Government,' when he and hla
lieutenants had decided to commit, If possi
ble, that wrong themselves. He strove to
bow dragons' teeth in the fields where the
young olive plants ot peace and good will
between the sections were growing up."
The Memphis Avalanche puts some solid
argument with its soothing syrup, and says
"The thoughtful man will ask why, If labor
is in such desperate straits, he did not rave
out this wild warning during the canvass?
If Northern manhood is so insulted why was
that not mentioned? If Mr. Blaine's speech
of incoherent ravings bad been delivered be
fore, the election it would have cost him
thousands of votes of prudent men. It Is
sheer, shallow demagogy. It would have
been dangerous at one time. Now it Is Idle
breath, and from a defeated candidate his
own threnodie obitaary. His Fort Wayne
bloody shirt speech is tame ia com pari'
son, and his own supporters . wil
ask, why the difference?" The Memphis
Appeal remarks: "From this speech the
country at large can see what it escaped
from by the election of Groyer Cleveland
Blaine thus again proves that he is not a
statesman, but a partisan; that he is not a
patriot, but a sectional politician." The
Augusta Chronicle fires up just a little
It addresses the defunct plumed knight In
the following words: "What does Mr. Blaine
expect In arraying the North against the
South at this time? . What deviltry does he
meditate? What revenge does he mark out?
But for the malice of his expressions and
ideas one might laugh at a plumed knight,
who never went to war, attempting to
frighten the opulent East and powerful Wer
wlm the spectre of a confederacy that died
many years ago, and with the images ot
rebel Boldlers that are either at peace or
carved on monuments."
The Selma I, Ala.) Times, sends a center shot
es it remarks: "The speech is one of the
bitterest, most artful and despicable attacks
ever made on the Southern people. It com
pletely gives the lie to all his hypocritical
p06turln(js in the pact as "the friend of the
South," and unmasks him as he is and al
ways has been in our eyes ready to thrust
the conspirator's knife to the hilt in the help
less South if he could thereby advance his
ambition to any extent." The Jacksonville
(Fla.) Times says: "The attempt to revive
sectionalism between the North and South
will utterly fail. The old feeling of animos
ity is buried too deep for resurrection at the
hands of a disappointed offfceseeker; the
Nation la one again now, and woe to that
man or that party who plays the jctal's
part and digs into the grave to batten on the
decaying corpse of national disunion."
THE IMPORTANCE OF ONE VOTE.
The Importance of one vote ia forgotten
when heavy majorities roll in for the favor
ite candidate, but when he .scrapes through
or ia defeated by a bare majority of a amall
and uncomfortable figure then "the might
have beens" rise op to accuse and breed dis
comfort to one's feelings. The closeness of
the Illinois Legislature now doubtful, and
at beet one way or the other only by a bare
majority of one or two, and that one
or two depending upon 0ne vote more or less
gathered from Chicago, a city of half a
million cf people is the latest illus
tration of the importance of one
vote. The Jefferson vtlle News relates an
instance where one vote elected a Represen
tative, a United 8tates Senator, and, per
haps, annexed Texas to the United States,
The News gets its information from Hon,
Dan Blotcber, of Hoiman, Scott County, Ind.
It was in 13 16 when Ham Davis was the
Democratic candidate for the Legislature in
tbatcouDty. Just before the polls closed
William H. English asked Mr. Biotcher if he
knew any voters who had not vote J. He
said yes, "there w&s Wash Owens but the
darned beggar wouldn't come beoause he
had no boots. Mr. English insisted that
Biotcher should get Owens, so he started for
him. Ovens refused to come to the polls be
cause he had no boots, but Biotcher by a
deal of penuasion got Owens to start on the
promise that he would lend him his boots.
Accordingly, when the pair got within half
a mile of Lexington, Biotcher pulled off his
boots and loaned them to Owens. In those
days it was universally the custom
to treat voters, and Owens received his
dram and fifty cents and leaving Biotcher
standing baiefcot in the cornfield started
for the polls. He voted and then pro
ceeded to invest his fifty cents in Jersey
lightning. The consequence was that Owens
got gloriously drunk and forgot all about
Blotcher's boots. Thia was a modification
of Daniel in the lion's den. It was Daniel's
bare foot in the cornfield, and he at length
grew lonely, and started after Owens with
red vengeance in his eye. Of course It was
using mild language to eay that Biotcher
was mad. But when the ballots were
counted and Hiram Davis was found to be
elected by a majority of one, then Uncle
Daniel's wrath was. changed to rejoicing.
But thia was cot the only good result.
In the contest for United States Senator,
EdwnrdC. Hannegan was elected by one
majority, and Ilannegan's vote annexed
Ttxas, bringing on the Mexican War. We
doubt if ever a bootless Democrat before or
afterward exercised such an important in
fluence over the destinies of his country. It
ehculd teach every man that his vote is im
portant. GRAMMAR AND APHORISMS.
The looseness and carelessness cf modern
writing are painf al to any one who has a re
spect for grammatical accuracy. If Lindley
Murray were alive to-day, the perusal of the
newspapers and literary periodicals would
almcet drive him insane, or perhaps the fa
mous grammarian would save himself the
inevitable torture by not opening one of
Singular to tell, this sort of composition
is peculiar to those who write in the English
tongue and it is an evil growing more aggra
vated every day. Probably the multiplica
tion of newspapers and the necessity of
using on them the services of half educated
men may have something to do with it.
The French writers are most accurately
grammatical and none of them more so than
female authors, from Madame de Sevigne
down to Madame Dudevant (George Sand),
while on the other hand, ot those who write
in the English language, the greatest and
most persistent offenders against grammar
are our novelists.
European writers are generally very accu
rate and very seldom offend against the
rules of syntax. They however often use the
word "will" where they should write "shall,"
as for example, "Will we go?" Instead of
"Shall we gor
On the other hand our American writers
frequently write "Shall you?" whoa they
should use "Will you?"
To understand how loose and slipshod
modern writing is the reader should take up
an essay of Steele or Addison or read a
page of Swift or Burke, and then peruse a
modern novel of average merit. "Help me
do this" is a most disagreeable expression.
Any of the great authors above mentioned
would have said, "Help me to do this," and
we find that it is our American novelists
who are the originators of this solecism.
Charles Dickens Is responsible for circulating
a hundred such curious phrases as "I don't
want to," "I dont mean to," when he should
have said, I don't wan't (or mean) to go or
to do a thing, and so on. But perhaps the
most singular vulgarism of all is that which
modern London novelists bo often 'pat into
the mouths of their lower class characters,
and not unfrequently into those of their
most dignified and well educated heroes and
heroines "You hadn't ought to do It" for
"You should not have done It."

and America is being steadily deteriorated,
and how rapidly valgar'.sau and aUng axe
Every writer should prepare his composi
tions for the benefit cf the general public,
for the advancement of society and the cul
tivation of the races. He should not address
any particular class, but write la such a ray
that he will be understood by the illiterate
mechanic as well as by the learned aavan.

intelligible only to scholars, or if he is a phy

"No edmi&ion except on business" is a
phrase which in the correct form reads, "No
admittance' except on business," since "ad
mission" means only "confession" cr "ac
knowledgment," "Aeaurance policy" Is wrong, and should
be "insa ranee policy," since "assurance"
also means "confidence."

Akothze stolen story is going the rounds
of the press now:
"A Parisian doctor prescribed for a laiy
who bad objections to rrowine etouU 'Take

of the field. They never take exercise, and,
as a consequence, they keeo on growing o g

Lakb Cotjktt steps nimbly to the front
this year or one of the first premium red
ribbons from the State Democratic Commit
tee. The total vote on President in 13S0 was
3,330, of which Garfield had 2,102 and Han
ceck 1.103; Garfield's plurality, 001. This
year of a total vote oi 4.146 Blaine received
2,214, Cleveland 1.901, leaviDg Blaine's plu
rality 313. The next time Lake County
promises our Presidential ticket a majority.
The bloody shirt organs having received
the keynote from Blaine propose to make
mischief, if it is possible so to do. A glance
over the New York Tribune, the Calcago
ditto, Commercial Gazette, etc, will satisfy
any one on this point. The old devil of sec
tionalism is to be galvanized once again into
life, end all the evil traits in human nature
to be stimulated into activity.

"Blainelsm would not be tolerated in this
country." Well, the tall goes with the hide.
If Blalneism is not to be tolerated after the
4th of March, neither will Arthurism or Hat
tonism be endured. Both Arthur and Hat
ton will retire to an obscurity which could
never by any possibility encompass Mr.
Blaine, and it will be the more congenial to
them from the fact that they only emerged
from It in consequence of a cruel murder,
which deprived the country of its duly elect

The close vote in Connecticut recalls vari
ous stories of close elections, one of the most
interesting being that of 1S51, which is told
by a correspondent of the Waterbury (Mass.)
American. There wa3 no election of State
officers, and the Legislature was evenly di
vided between the Whigs and Democrats,
with three Free-sailers, who held the balance
of power. Two of these had been Whigs,
and Foster, the WM3 candidate for Gover
nor, was so sure of an election that he wrote
his message and had a special engine all fired
up to take him to Hartford to deliver It. But
the Free-eoUers had agreed to vote together
for all officers, and they were 83 successful
with their trades that they organized the
House with Free-soil officers, from Speaker
down to Doorkeepers. Then, at the last
minute, they elected Thomas L Seymour,
the Democratic candidate for Governor, and
Green Kendrick, the Whig candidate for
Lieutenant Governor. Seymour was sur
prised, and had to deliver his message of the
previous year, with the dates and figures
The campaign of 1834 is closed; the cam
paign of IS S3 opens with Blaine's bitter and
malignant speech, which we print In fall,
Part of it he has said before. The sophistry
and mendacity of his construction of the
Southern electoral vote have been already
exposed; they can impose on no one who
reflects. His fierce attack upon a great
body of his fellow-citizens, his savage ap
peal to the hatreds of the war, and to the
long extinguished passions of that unhappy
period, are too late to do harm now. All
that stuff served its purpose until the theft
of the Presidency by Blaine's Southern
filonda showed what Southern Republican
ism meant, From that day to this nj Re
publican has been so ill advised as to sug
gest comparison between the Democratic
supremacy at the South and tbe Republican
supremacy which preceded it. So the ball
opens. The leader cracks his whip ever his
party. He tells them that he Is everything
and they are nothing; that the people made
his cause their own, but the party was not
as strong as its leader, Ho lays down the
new. platform; preaches the new crusade;
claims everything; bullies his supporters;
threatens his enemies; bulldozes public
opinion; prepares to force tbe tattooed man
again upon an indignant and disgusted Na
tion. Such is tbe Blaine programme. We

A c EITLEM Asr who was traveling through

for himself and companion and their horses.
He wanted to make payment, but the wo

her. Finally she said: "If you don't think
I am mean I will take one quarter of a dollar

Ose of the mott impartial incidents of the
Presidential contest of 1884, one which illus

American people, Is found in the death by
dynamite of the two employes of the factory
at Stoucheburg, in this State. One was a
Democrat and the other a Republican, and
they paired off to the deadly task of ramming
80 per cent cartridges for a political parade.
They were certain one of the twain would
be killed, it having been determined that
tbe survivor should cast his vote and ex

About a year ago J. H. Kelly kept a hotel
at Annan dale, a little station on the Shen
ango and Allegheny Railroad, between
Greenville and Ca tier, Pa. Kelly had Ja
daughter, Mamie, aged twelve, and very
pretty. One of Kelly's boarders was Ed-,
ward C. Beatty, a telegraph operator. Beatty
and Mamie were very fond of each other,
but their affection was not noticed on ae
cocr t of her age. One day they eloped, and
were traced to Greer. ills, where, to the
great astonishment of the sorrowing pa
rents, it was learned that they were married.
There all further trace of them was lost until
a few months later, when it was learned
that the ' runaway ' daughter had died in a
little town in the far West. The sad news
almost killed the fond parents. They
moved to Attoona, where they now live. To
their surprise and joy they received a letter
a few dsys ago from . their long lost child
whom they had mourned as dead. The run
away couple went from Greenville to a
Western town, where, they have since lived
happily. The letter states that they are the
possessors of a happy home ia Harper,
Harper County, Kansas.

Magnificent Reception to the Vice Pres
identelect ia the City of
Sfocwomps and Democrats Born Greek
Fire and Pack the Great Kink
The Associated Press gave but a very lim
ited account of tbe magnificent reception
accorded Mr. Hendricks in Brooklyn Thurs
day night The following Is from the Chicago
Timea' New York epecial:
Brooklyn was ablazs with eblhuslasm this
evening. From Red Hook Fotnt to New
town Crook cannon boomed, aad rockets,
bombs, shells and cheers burst upon the air.
The streets were tbroog-d with people In
evtry ward. Nearly every avenue was bril
lisnt with the glare cf torches and the glit
tering uniform of paradars. Added to the
blare of the trumpets and the music of
bands was the niagnHceat illumination, ot
business housaa and reside oces. Ev6ry
Democrat and Independent Republican had
transformed his place of abode into a fairy
palace, the stars and etrlpei hucg from the
porches, and pretty lanterns from the trees
and from the window, while buating In
prefasion nearly concealed the fronts of
shops and residences alike. From the
brilliantly decorated Eagle and Union news
paper offices to the city lice, Fulton street
was cne blaze of lght, while away over in
the eastern division Mrs. Hugh Smith, who
won f 2,500 on the lefcrm Governor's elec
tion, was entertaining hundreds of discon
solate Blaine men. There was cause for the
most popular rejoicing Vice President
elect Thomas A. Hendricks was the gae&t of
the city, and her clt'zens were outdoing all
previous efforts to honor him.
At 7 o'clock a coach drawn by four bays
rolled up to the entrance of the Clarendon
Hotel in Washington street. From it
alighted a fine-looking gentlsman, a little
above the medium height. The crowd
which gathered about the carriage quickly
recognized the figure and face cf the next
presiding officer of the Senate. Immediately
A MIGHTY CHEEK
for "Tom" Hendricks rent the air, and the
crowd made a rush to se:'rs his hand. Tiro
stalwart bice coats succeeded in protecting
the ex Governor from the good natured on
slaught of his adnJrers Ion enough to en
able him to reach the inside of the hotel.
Augustus Van Wvck, Chairman of the Kieps
County Committee, stepped after him, and
Mr. Daniel W. Vcorheee, ot Indiana, the
"Tall Sycamore of the Wabash," hurried
with Lie hobt to join Mr. Hendricks witain.
The trio then proceeijd t? ft elad apart
ment atiä artok of Inneh. At 7 :3$ o'clock
the ITacccck Legion, 300 strong, headed by
en imposing drum major end a big band.
drew up in line teicre a Hotel aui awaited
the appearance cf the city's paeils. Five
minutes later Mr. Hendricks, accompanied
by Meesrp. Van Wyck and Voorhees, entered
the coach, and. amid the huzzu of thou
sands, led the line to the rink. Alonz the
entire route the wildest demonstrations of
joy were seen, and several attempts were
made by the crowd to detach the f oar-in-hand
and drag the coich to the end of the
lowever, and the crewd contented itself
with giving vent to its feelings in ear split
ting coeers, setting ou roc sets ana tombs,
and tke waving of flags and handkerchiefs.
Mjitle avenue, from Folton street to Cler
mont, was made as light as day with
GREEK FIRE AKD PTEOTECHIflCg,
and Mr. Hendricks was kept constantly bow
ing in answer to the cheers of the multitade
which thronged The thoroughfare. Oa his
arrival at tbe rink a most vociferous greeting
was given run py the crowd massed about
the outside. It was with great diffiulty that
a passage to the door was .secured, and when
the distinguished guest nnally succeeded in
reaching the interior, he breathed a sigh of
While the demonstrations along tbe route
of the procfission were occurring, the im
mense building had been rapidly filling with
people, each pewon being intent upon D3ing
the first to present himself at the jabileeaod
congratulatory meeting of the Democrats and
Independent Republicans who at ied In the
election of Cleveland and Hendricks. By 7
o'clock the vast edifice was packer!, many
laJif? bf inj? present, and further adiateioa
was impcssibfe. The interior of the bald
ing was tastefully decorated. Upon tbe pil

by ensigns of all nations. The gallery was
lectocned with American flags. Oa either
side of the stage hung fine portraits of Cleve
land and Uem' ricks, draped with American
enBigns. The Eighth Regiment Band dis
coursed National airs.
About 8:30 o'clock ex-Governcr Hendricks
accompanied by Messrs. Van Wyck, Voor
hees, Andrew McLean and Henry W. Ux

lican Committee of One Hundred, appeared
upon the platform. No sooner had sight
been caught cf the Vice President elect than
the e dience rose as oce man. The men
