! The editor of the Ilathdrum Made
appears to have gone into hysterics,

peared to consider il unworl by of c.oii

olid, tiecaiisc I lie Republican belie\ ed it
was cnl il led to a vindication on ac
count of Hu- abuse and billingsgate;
heaped upon il by I lie fusion press
when the Republican tirst ment ioie-d
I he facts connected with the ex-com
uissioners illegal practices last
Every charge made by I!.,- Republi
can against the ex-commissioners at 1;,
that time is fully sustained by the !
more recent, disclosures made by (im.n- !
I y Attorney Graham. !
It very ill hecomes thc Rat hdrnm I
llliidr to attempt' to attribute wrong ;
motives to the repiit,liean press in'
this Instance. The Blade was lirsl
and foremost with its deniids of tin-'
charges made against the ex-commts- j '
sinners by tlu- republican press last
II denied velieuu-nt Iv that
,
I
I
t here was anything wrong about the
dllcial conduct of these men, and
heaped no end of abuse and hillings
.-ate upon the Hrpiihhcun because it
lured to publish the charges. The Re
puhllraii's exposure of t hose men was j
by the Blade characterized as an ut .
tempt at blackmail, etc. Vet during l
ill ut'tills Hint* the Hlaclt* knew the.
I'aets as well as did the Kepubliean
ind as they recently have been dis
closed by County Attorney Graham.
I >(h*h the Blade wisli to be (inoted in
this matter? It is, indeed, a tlne(?)
record for a newspaper which is now
it tempting to cast odium upon anotli

I
The cry of "stop thief," which the
I'.lade has seen lit to use in this con-1 IU
uection, Is in very bad taste. The re-;
publican press of tills county is not
.ailed upon to defend the record of
"I'
my republican ex-official. No repub
lican ex-official lias "gone south " I
with "cash boooks " or any other i
kind of iMioks. On the contrary, IT .

IS some ex-fusloners have done. Near
ly fnur years have elapsed since tliej
last republican official In this county
I iirned over his office to a fusion sue-;
cossor, and up to the present the tu- i
• ion successors have found nothing
upon which to base even an insinua
tion of wrong-doing on the part of re
publican ex-officials, notwithstanding
they have been challenged to "show
up." ami tailing in w hieb t hey are re
- tuest ed by public opinion to "shut

in produce anyttiing connected with'
tu- reo i nl of republican ex-officials,
or otlu-rw iso, upon w Inch it can base
ts cry ot "stop thief," used in refer
me to the republican press at this
' line.
In this connection the Blade says:
The fact that thc nid Isard were fu
ioiRTS, cuts no ice." No: hut the
act that their every officiai act vas

IIow many court decis
j ions will it require to make a fusioner
be honest? Has not County Attor
| n( »y Graham cited supreme court (le
\ cisions in support of every charge he
makes against the ex-commissioners?
Did not the republican press of this
county cite these same supreme court
decisions at the very time when the
illegal transactions took place?
Blade lias a short memory, or it would
not make such ri^iculou't statements.

The
The Republican credits the present
fusion hoard fur wanting to be good,
but that goodness is not, by any
means, good enough to cover up all
fusion sins.
The Blade says further:
