Jtaw Ulm Review
F.W. .JOHNSON,, Editor and Prop
Wednesday, June 15, 1892.
The names of Harrison and ltied offered
to the voters of the nation by the dele
gates who assembled in Minneapolis last
week are such as will inspire confidence
in,the coming campaign. The adminis
tration of President Harrison during the
past three years, is not one that requires
defense. It has all along been faithful,
frank and in accord with Republican
principles. Furthermore it has had to
contend with some very delicate and
complicated questions of foreign policy
and in every instance, whether the credit
belongs to the chief or to his lieutenants,
it has maintained a bold front and
achieved glory for America. It will
therefore go into the coming contest with
public satisfaction at its back and en
couraged with flattering prospects of en
The candidate for vice-president is a
newspaper man. As such he has done
good service through the New York Tri
bune and has merited hfe reward. Able,
truly Republican and pronounced in his
views tb people will learn to like him
as they Know him more.
Throw no Bricks.
The motto which is said to have been
'telegraphed from Washington to dele
gates at Minneapolis, "Stand firm, but
throw no bricks," is full of wisdom.
Neither President Harrison nor ex-Secre
tary Blaine would ever thank any Mend,
however warm-hearted and earnest, for
uttering bitter words which should make
his nomination unwise or dangerous.
With cordial effort by the whole party
for its principles and its splendid cause,
either of several worthy candidates could
le elected this year. But he who starts
bickering and harshness of speech in such
a case may easily make the election ofhis
own especial favorite doubtful. The best
friend of either candidate is he who deals
fairly with the honorable reputation, the
admirable services, and the proved merits
and strength of others whose claim is al
so dear to the Republican party and to
good citizens of both parties.
The extravagance so often heard around
conventions might have been more wise
ly restrained in this case, because a great
proportion of Republicans throughout
the country have become accustomed
to regard the President and the Secretary
of State as associated and sharing in the
work of a highly successful administra
tion. It could not helj) either should his
friends claim on his behalf full credit for
all that has been well done, for the peo
ple would resent and repel such a claim.
Among the shrewdest and most experi
enced leaders of the party these are some
who are perfectly convinced that one
candidate has much the greater strength
witli the people and could be the more
surely elected. But other leaders, also,
eminent for ability and great experience,
believe just the same of another candi
date. Where there is such a division of
opinioiyunong those who are most com
petent to judge, dogmatic certainty of
assertion is scarcely in place, for without
excess of modesty any man may admit
that his impressions might be in error
about part of sixty millions of people.
The case,is one that calls for good and
careful judgement, for generous recogni
tion of the merits of all Republican can
didates, and particularly for avoidance
of those sayings that tend to make unit
ed efforts difficult after the nomination.
If there should be candidates whose sup
porters at any stage could not or would,
not meet the emergency in this spirit, a
level-headed convention might find itself
compelled to set them aside, in order to
insure a nomination that would command
the full and hearty support of Republic
an voters and thus do full justice to Re
publican principles. Where a conven
tion is impressed with a sense of its re
sponsibility and duty in that regard, in
dividuals or ungenerous 'spirit and fiery
tongue are in danger of destroying the
candidates they may favor.
Do not Sulk.
With Mr. Blaine's own words for a text
the Review would urge that this is no
tniie for his friends,to sulk. His admir
ers to be. sure, feel Sorely that he has
been turned down in a manner that shows
little respect for his brilliant services and
unselfish loyalty to Republican progress,
but the needs of the campaign demand
that all personal feeling be buried and
that differences of choice and favoritism
blend in a united effort to rob the enemy
of all offensive weapons. There are issues
at stake of more importance than indiv
idual preferences, says the great secfe.

But the latter should remember that it
was always the commendable and patri
otic policy of their gallant leader to turn
his back to personal disappointment and
labor hard that the nominee might win.
That is a
The Review has always been a Blaiue
paper and always will be. Itsfelt*that it
would have been wise to nominate him
at Minneapolis and that he would sweep
the country with his wonderful popular
ity, but circumstances prevented the cul
mination of its .wishes, and it will now
accept the situation gladly and do what
it can in this section,to aid the cause of
the convention's choice, realizing that the
principles of the party, should he be
elected, will be safely guarded in his
hands. Blaine was our preference over
all others. Harrison, however, is careful,
discreet and able,' and our admiration for
another will not suffer us tb impair the
chances of the party because we could
not get what we most desired.
How It Was Done.
The Review has not one word of fault
to find with the ticket nominated at
Minneapolis. It is creditable in every
respect and as the bitterness of disap
pointment fades away in a common wish
to secure Republican success this fall it
will grow in popular favor. There is one
thing, however, that will not tend to les
sen that disappointment of Mr. Blaine's
friends and that should not pass without
criticism. We refer to the manner in which
the defeat of the secretary of state was
We would hot have it, understood that
Harrison was to blame for this. Most
likely he did not understand what means
were being employed to secure his nomi
nation or he would not have counte
nanced the methods. The pang and
sting of insult, notwithstanding, remain.
Chauncey Depew, standing on the plat
form of that convention hall with all the
dignity of a magnate and the conceit of
the puffed-up orator that he is, and ex
ulting that the thousands, who cheered
over the mention of the greatest states
man of his age, could not vote, will lin
ger in the minds of those present and it
will only be through the Christian spirit
of turning the other cheek also that his
contemptuous slur will lose its effect.
Reason as he may and laugh at such de
monstrations if he will, Mr. Depew is
not orator enough to talk down the fact
that Blaine is the favorite with the peo
ple. Leave it to them.and he would be
the choice with overwhelming certainty*.
The thousands in the hall wanted him.
The delegates did not and everybody
knows the reason why. The former are
willing to have their wishes defeated,
perhaps for policy's sake, perhaps for an
unfortunate grouping of circumstances,
but to be insulted for their love and choice
is hard to stand. Defeat they can brook
if it is' thought best, but humiliation ne
ver brought with it healing powers.
When Mr. Blaine stepped from the
cabinet so unexpectedly a week ago, his
sudden act created general surprise and
the circumstances and the impulsive na
ture of the man aroused the slumbering
suspicion with many of trickery and pol
itical chicanery dark and devious. The
people possessed of that view were no
doubt honest in their acceptance of it,
and many of them were former admirers
of Mr. Blaine, but where there was so
much of secretness attached to the mat
ter and so much of purtness in the presi
dent's reply, it is strange that they should
refuse to give the retiring secretary an
equal benefit of doubt, as long as there
wss any. They should remember too,
that in spite of all the charges that have
been preferred against this interesting
man, he has lived them all down and
two weeks ago there was not a man with
in the party or even amongst the Demo
crats who would not look to Mm with
honor. Besides Blaine is shrewd. If
he had wanted the nomination from the
Minneapolis convention, he would not
have resigned from the cabinet in ordpr
to secure it. He could have obtained it
just as easily witliout giving a sign and
his knowledge of politics would have
led him to -foresee the effects of such a
course. The charge is not plausible and
there are certainly matters yet to be re
vealed that will put a different light on
the whole affair. .At present the only
con elusion that can be drawn is that the
American people are too fickle, They
guess too much, and convict too fast.
But whatever was the cause or what
ever is to be offered to Mr. Blaine in the
future, his past glory and renown can
not be taken from him..As senator and
representative he was always ardent and
bold in defense of what bebelieved to be
right, comparing easily with Clay for fer
vor»and with Webster for discretion and
strength of ideas. As secretory .of-state,
the nation is proud of him and his diplo
matic finesse has placed his name along
with two others, youngest and. brightest
of the world's greatest stat sman. GI"
