One thiug, at least, greatly injures
Donnelly's chances of election to
Congress. He is well known.
Even Democrats can And but one
point of excellence in Cleveland's
letter of acceptance. It is brief.
It is to be regretted that so much
mud is thrown at the Democratic can
didate for the presidency, and it is to
be regretted still more that there is
just cause for it.
Any fair-minded man who reads
both Blaine's and Cleveland's letter
of acceptance will come to the con
clusion that the former is a statesman
and the latter—isn't.
The eagerness with which cattle and
sheep seek shade from the midsum
mer sun, should lead farmers to plant
trees and otherwise to provide shelter
for them in the fields.
The Chicago Herald is bold and
prophetic. It says: 'The United
States senate will not long survive
the house of lords. The one is based
on the other, and both are obstructions
to the popular will.
It is said that farmers of Red River
Valley are importing some very choice
rarities of apple and pear trees from
Russia which are claimed to have
flourished there—the severest of in
habitable climates—for centuries.
Of the forty-six thou sand eight hun
dred acres devoted to the hop culture
nearly forty thousand are in New
York. Wisconsin stands next with
about four and one-half thousand Cal
ifornia has about one thousand acres,
and the balance is scattered through
fifteen States. The leading hop-grow
ing New York counties are: Ostego,
Madison, Oneida and Schoharie.
Nearly five-eighths of all our liops are
grown in these.
During the hot season while horses
are kept at heavy work their breasts
are very liable to become sore, and
many of them will be the result of
poorly fitting collars. See to this
matter at once and prevent the
trouble if possible. When the breast
has become galled wash frequently
with some astringent solution, such
as alum water or a decotion of white
oak bark. Arnica is excellent for
galls and should be applied at niglit,
after the team has finished work, and
well rubbed in.
A Chicago correspondent of the
Farmer's Advocate, Canada, says:
"A general survey of the live stock
interests of the continent reveals the
fact that they have seldom, if ever,
been in a more flourishing condition
than now. Our herds are improving
and increasing, and thoughtful indus
trious breeders and feeders are pros
pering finely. It is becoming more
and more apparent that the farmer
who does not raise stock fails to se
cure a large share of the pleasure and
profits which come from diversified
Nothing can be more contracted
than the notion that the World's In
dustral Exposition at New Orleans is
a small affair that has no widespread
and lasting influence and no signifi
cance outside the Southern States.
It is not only a world's fair in the best
sense of the term, but it is the largest
in buildings, in number and variety
of exhibits, in special features, in the
number of nations and peoples who
have contributed to give it a universal
character. It impels States to enter
the lists as honorable rivals it causes
the foreign manufacturer to contend
with home producers for the mastery
in many lines of human endeavor.
It makes the whole nation know its
weakness and its strength at a glance.
It will enable more people to come to
gether who have heretofore been left
out of the procession, and present op
portunities of forming
friendships and
promoting a general good will among
all nations, such as have never oc
curred before. It will enable hun
dreds of thousands of visitors to be
come acquainted with the natural
wealth of the South. The Central and
South American republics will be
brought to the front for the first time.
Manufactures will have a chance to
see and talk with many representa
tives of the forty millions of consum
es who live to the South of our coun
try, and with whom it is one aim of
the Exposition to cultivate such
friendly relations that they shall be
come desirable
customers for our man
ufactured articles. The exhibit of the
products of American and Mexican
mines displayed at the Exposition
will be larger than has been hereto
fore attempted. The Cotton Centen
nial feature alone will engage the at
tention of the people of every country.
The Exposition is not sectional nor
purely American except in the idea
of its magnitude. It ought not to be a
difficult matter to understand the
significance of the World's Industrial

The Cloveland Confessions of Guilt
All lu.
We suppose the set apologies for
Cleveland are all in. We have given
them more or less notice as they have
been entered, and shall not analyze
them as a whole at this time. But that
the Tele
graph's position may be under
stood we here enter a formal declara
tion on the whole batch.
The New York Post says the Govern
or maintained "irregular connections"
with a widow, and that a boy was born
whoso paternity, it claims, was doubt
ful, owing to the promiscuous inter
course of Grover Cleveland and some
of his boon companions with the hoy's
General King, of the Governors
staff, makes the same statement, going
into disgusting details somewhat, and
charging the boy upon a dead friend of
the Presidential candidate, lie adds
that Governor Cleveland says his ver
sion of the storv is true.
The Buffalo 'Courier, the Buffalo or
gan of the Democracy, passes over the
llalpin affair as lightly as possible,
shrinking from it line a boy from a
plunge into a cold-water bath, but ad
mits the "irregular connection."
A member of the Governor's staff, a
law partner of one of his beneficiaries,
and fourteen other men, personal and
political friends of Cleveland, calling
themselves "Independents," bring up
the rear with a formal apology for the
Governor's misconduct. They tip-toe
over the llalpin case as if tney were
treading on eggs, and raise a cloud or
dust under which they hope their
friends mav escape from his troubles.
All these"
apologists admit the central
fact in the case, and two of the apolo
gies make it quite revolting to men of
decent habits.
The 'Telegraph has to say: All the
evidence we have heard or seen goes to
show that Maria Ilalpin's honor was
unstained when she met Grover Cleve
land. A boy was born to her Septem
ber 14, 1S74. Cleveland acknowledged
that he was the father of that boy.
The bov was placed in an orphan asy
lum. The mother stole him from the
asvlum, as its records show. The
mother was taken against her will and
without legal process placed in the
Providence Lunatic Asylum in this
citv. The attending physician when
he'found her there told her she could
leave at her pleasure, as they had no
right to detain her. She left. She em
ployed a lawver to begin legal proceed
ings for abduction against those who
illegallv placed her in the lunatic asy
lum. A relative, anxious to avoid pub
lic scandal, induced her to compromise.
Grover Cleveland paid $500 to settle the
a s e
These are the salient points the
llalpin case. The Telegraph did not
present these points July 21 as simple
assertions. It cited authority as it
went along. The defenders present
bare denials and offer no evidence in
support of them. Indeed, in all the
apologies combined there is not a deni
al of any one of these points by it-self,
except there is a declaration in two of
them that Maria llalpin was a vile wo
man when Cleveland "became intimate"
with her. These, points are not taken
up and treated separately. The fact is
that each of them by itself is acknowl
Btlced. But they are "lumped," and it
is denied that as a whole they reflect
seriously upon Grover Cleveland, or
that they go to show that his moral
character is such as to be any bar to his
elevation to the proudest office on
earth .—Buffalo Telegraph.
—An active and well-informed Dem
ocratic politician and editor living in
New Jersev and doing business in New
York writes to a prominent Democrat
of anti-Cleveland proclivities of this
city as follows: "As to election, Cleve
land is a dead community, I think. We
have no 'barrel." no unity, no enthusi
asm for the man. He is of a terribly
small and mean pattern, and he ought to
be bfatca. I had a long talk with Gov
ernor Abbett of this State the other
day and he thinks as I do. Abbett
fought for Bayard at Chicago. The
campaign will be a sick one all through.
I think and fear Cleveland will not even
o-etNew Jersey. He will lose New
York by 50,000, and I'll bet on it." It's
just so everywhere,—l'tica Herald.
The New York "Independent" Aban
dons Cleveland.
One of the first of the purist Eastern
papers which bolted Blaine and hoisted
the Cleveland colors was the New York
Independent (Religious). It wanted to
run the campaign on high moral issues
—pure personal character and conduct
without speck or blemish—and there
fore it came out headlong for the Buf
falo bachelor. No married man was
good or exemplary enough for its editor
to support. He would be satisfied only
witli a candidate who kept bachelor's
The Independent article is as follows:
"We published last week in our corres
pondence a communication from Dr.
Kinsley Twining, one of our editorial
staff, giving the result of his investi
gation in regard to the Cleveland scan
dal. The grave and serious part of
this scandal, which he declares ho
found to be true, is that which imputes
personal impurity to Mr. Cleveland in
the specific instance that has come to
the knowledge of the public. We can
not, in view of all the facts, resist the
conclusion that
part of the scan­
dal is true and this is quite enough to
determine our course.
damaging charge came upon us
wholly unexpected, and with the sud
den, stunning force of a thunderbolt
out of a clear sky. None were more
surprised and overwhelmed by it than
the Governor's friends and intimates
among the Independents of Buffalo,
and it was a case that called for thor
ough and fearless investigation.
That we felt this in every fibre, and
that we intended to impress this feel
ing on our readers, and to hold our
selves absolutely free to act as circum
stances required, is the simple truth
and our silence to the Cleveland nomi
nation from that day was intended.
"We utterly refuse to accept two
standards of character. We repudiate
with contempt the doctrine that a pub
lic man's private life is not to be in
quired into. Dr. Twining's investiga
tion went on the recognition of this
principle. On this subject, as it now
stands, we will not be slow to give ad
vice. The conditions have wholly
changed since the Independent confer
ence. Then we were ready with a real
enthusiasm to support the tried, and,
as we then believed, honest reformer,
Grover Cleveland. Now, without one
word in derogation of his record, as
Governor of this State, our enthusiasm
is wiped out by the discovery of the
acknowledged and awful facts. We
hence desire to have all our readers
plainly understand, once for all that
whatever lias been said in our editorial
columns of the Independent favorable
to the election of Governor Cleveland
was said prior to the recent sickening
disclosures in regard to his private
character, which have justly shocked
the moral sense of all pure and right
minded people. The attempt now to
force sucn a candidate upon the people
would, in our opinion, disgrace the par
ty which nominated him, and the whole
country, if he should be elected. We
will have no hand or voice in helping
on this matter, let the consequences be
what they may. and we will not advise
the readers
of the Independent to smoth
er their conscience and disgrace them
selves by engaging directly or indirect
ly in any such movement.
"We are now in serious difficulty as a
Nation in regard to the unchecked pro
gress of Mormon ism and shall we now,
in the face of threatening evil and per
il. plunge into deeper gulf by any
seeming indifference as to the private
character of one who has been nomi
nated to fill the highest oflice the
gift of he people? We say no, a thou
sand timcB no. Governor Cleveland
should positively decline to be a candi
date, and withdraw at once from the
canvass, and be compelled to do so it it
is necessarv. The party which nomi
nated him through its chosen represen
tatives should then reconvene and se
lect a new ticket that will command
(he hearty support of the people ot all
parties. 'There is time enough to do
this, and there is no hope or safety in
any other course. To stand still now,
or attempt to go bliiully forward with
the present ticket, would in our .judg
ment bo an insult to the ruler ot na
tions, sure death to the Democratic
party, including also its leaders, and an
everlasting disgrace to the liepublio.
Not Reconciled.
The working classes are not getting
reconciled to Cleveland's veto of the
bill protecting the car-drivers, but the
moro they think of it the madder they
get. During the last session of the
New York Legislature, under control
of the Republicans, the following1, lull
passed both branches of it:
SKC. 1. On anil alter the passage of tills
act it shall be unlawful for any officer oi
agent of any railroad corporation in any oi
the cities of this State whose cars are
driven by horses to exact from conductors
or drivers employed by them more than
twelve hours' labor for a day's work, and
such corporations shall out of said twelve
hours' laoor allow conductors and drivel's a
reasonable time to obtain meals.
2. Any officer or aurent of any such
corporations who shall openly violate or
otherwise evade the provisions of this act
shall bo guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable
by a lino not to exceed §300, or imprison
ment not to exceed six months, or both tine
and imprisonment, for each offense.
3. Tliis act shall take etfect immed
This, bill, intended to protect a large
body or workingmen* from the excess
ive exactions of moneyed corporations,
was vetoed by Gov. Cleveland on the
flimsy pretext that it was "class legis
lation and "demagogy." To put it out
of the power of a powerful corporation
to exact sixteen hours' labor trom its
employes as a day's work is, in the
opinion of this friend of the poor man
and this champion of the welfare of
working classes, "demagogy."
Hendricks Was Hissed.
Immediately after the assassination
of President Lincoln, a public meeting
was held in Indianapolis. Among the
prominent men on the platform were
Governor Morton, Joseph E. McDonald
and Thomas Hendricks. It being at
the close of the war, there were thou
sands of soldiers in the city on their
way to their homes, and they attended
this meeting. Morton spoke, and so
did McDonald, and they were both lis
tened to with respectful attention but
when Hendricks arose, he was met
with a volley of hisses, which were re
newed every time he tried to speak.
His opposition to the war for the Union
and his hostilitv toward Lincoln were
so well known that they refused to lis
ten to him. Finally Morton stood up
and pleaded for a hearing for Hen
dricks. and he was allowed to speak
but he said but little, and that little
fell very flat. This was nearly twenty
years ago, but there are yet thousands
of old soldiers who have not forgotten
Hendricks' war record, and do not be
lieve in his asserted friendship for Lin
coln.—Cincinnati Commercial Gazette.
An Old Copperhead.
Mr. Hendricks' record is longer than
Mr. Cleveland's and more consistent.
In fact its consistency is the most ag
gravating feature of it, for from first
to last he has opposed the great prin
ciples upon which National honor and
prosperity have been built up.
Mr. Hendricks advocated the repeal
of the Missouri Compromise.
Mr. Hendricks opposed the repeal of
the Fugitive-Slave law.
Mr. Hendricks opposed the constitu
tional amendment abolishing slavery.
Mr. Hendricks opposed the War for
the Union and gave moral aid and
comfort to the Rebels.
Mr. Hendricks advocated inflation
and repudiation.
Mr. Hendricks on the tariff question
takes the free-trade side, though he has
desperately tried to straddle if.
Democratic Campaign Methods.
The methods employed by the Dem
ocratic party managers to carry Na
tional elections appear to vary with each
campaign. It would seem, however,
that this year they have reaehed the
lowest possible depth of meanness—a
depth which suggests the cheerful
thought that they are engaged in a last
desperate struggle. Let us see what
methods they have employed to con
trol the National elections ror the-last
twenty years:
1864. By fraudulent returns of votes
of soldiers.
1868. By repeating and fraudulent
1876. By tissue ballots and cipher
1880. By forged letters and affidavits.
1884. By defacement of tombs.

has been said thus far in the campaign

sition. Some years ago Mr. Hendricks
called Schurz a "Lying Dutchman,"
and now Mr. Schurz calls Hendricks a

the steps of Tammany Ilall waiting foi
somebody to come out and negotiate

is that made by sharpening a meat axe
on a grindstone.—Philadelphia Press.
—The Springfield Republican now ad
mits that Cleveland has no possible
chance of carrying Massachusetts, and
his chances in "New York are problem
atical. The liepublican wants only a
little time to cease attempting to boom
Cleveland. It may follow Dana's lead
and come out for Massachusetts' dis
tinguished son, Ben Butler.
—"Up to this point," says the Tren
ton Times, "The Democratic party in
New Jersey has been losing ground."
That is a mild and conservative state
ment of the situation, and though en
tirely inadequate as a description, may
be allowed to pass at this stage of the
campaign. ADout a month from now
the Times will doubtless be frank
enough to tell the entire truth.
—By the way, what has become of
the fraud issue? There stands Mr. Hen
dricks the martyr, ready to be crown
ed, and, "the gigantic crime of 1870" is
just where it always was. But for
some reason Democratic Orators aro
neglecting their opportunity. Possibly
President Ilayes^ Secretary of the In
terior has a monopoly of that issue,
but Mr. Schurz ought not to let it spoil
on his hands.
—Mr. Cleveland was nominated by
the votes of men from the West who
were prepared to admit that lie was
not strong in their section, but claimed
wonderful success for him in New
York. Now, New York Democrats
are telling us that their candidate may
be weak here, but he is tremendously
popular out West. Mr. Cleveland ap

sents Bourbon Demociacy moro com

that, let him study Mr. Hendricks'
public record and satisfy himself.—

—Colonel Aleck McClure is too inde-
endent for the Democrats. lie tells
truth occasionally, as when he
wrote to his Philadelphia paper from
Saratoga, the. headquarters of the
Clovelandites, that Blaine was much
ahead, so far, in the political contest.
This was "giving the thing away," the
boys say, and they want the Philadel
phia journalist read out of the party.
Jiy the way, Mr. McClure was about
leaving the party last winter without
being asked. He may not wait to be
told to go now
—"A forty-year Democrat" writes tc
the N. V. Sun: "The leading men and
minds of the Democratic party of the
of the country should meet and demand
the withdrawal of Mr. Cleveland. The
interests at stake are far too important
to be saciTlicod, in compliance with the
convention's foolish choice or Mr
Cleveland's personal ambition. Those
are in one scale, the honor and welfare
of the Nation in the other. The des
perate situation warrants a desperate
remedv. if Cleveland will not volun
tarily withdraw ho should be forcibly
set aside."
—The Labor World, published in
Philadelphia, is-unreserved in condem
nation of the Democratic candidates.
The following is among its latest para
graphs: "Veto Cleveland and monopo
ly. No man was ever so successful in
bringing upon his head the condemna
tion" of labor as Grover Cleveland.
From Maine to California the univer
sal sentiment among the working peo
ple is "Down with Cleveland and mo
nopoly." The labor napers are a unit
upon that subject, and a Cleveland man
is a rarity. Veto Cleveland, who veto
ed the conductors' and drivers' bill.
—Mr. McMaster, editor of the New
York Freeman's Journal, who has been
a Democrat to the verge of Copper
headisni. says: The Democratic plat
form on ihe principle mainly at issue—
the principle of protecting or not pro
tecting monopolies at the expense of
the multitude of laborers—talks with
a double tongue, and stammers. The
Democratic candidate—forced on the
party by a trick—at a critical moment
for organization leaves his cause in the
hands of the clique who own him, and
takes to the woods as a country bump
kins, to doff his shoes and stockings,
roll up his trousers, and angle for mud
fish in the Adirondacks.
—In 1876 George William Curtis
wrote of Mr. Hendricks, whom lie is
supporting now for the ollice for which
Mi-. Hendricks was then a candidate:
He was the inconsiderate ally of the
aggressions of slavery and. .the de
bauchery of the National mind and
conscience. He was a faithful sup
porter of the degrading Democratic
effort tc- stifle freedom in Kansas and
to dishonor the Nation's name.
Since the war he has been known only
as a.Democratic aspirant for the Pres
idency, apparently for the reason that
he lived in a Western State and would
be acceptable to ex-llebels, Copper
heads, and inflationists.
—The Democrats- have given up as
serting flat nine-tenths of the German
Americat voters in the country are en
thusiastic for Cleveland and are now
mildly piping instead that there is
"indifference among the sons of
the Fatherland. We have not noticed,
however, that any Democratic journal
has noted as an illustration of this in
difference a Republican meeting in St.
Louis tlie other evening at which near
ly 8,000 Germans listened with delight
and responded with tremendous cheer
ing while Dr. Preetorius, editor of the
Westliche Post, proclaimed the impera
tive necessity and the bright promise of
a Republican triumph.
—The Louisville Courier-Journal,
which is ostensibly edited by Mr. Henry
Watterson has this to say of the scan
dal in which the reform candidate for
the Presidency is involved: "It is ad
mitted tlist, about thirteen years ago,
being then a voung bachelor of four
and thirty, Grover Cleveland had made
the acquaintance of and, as so often
happens, in such affairs, drifted into
an unlawful connection with a widow."
This is an important admission.. The
,-result of that itnlnrvrfui connection was
a male child who is -now 10 years of
age. The admission, therefore, implies
that Mr. Cleveland not only drifted in
to this unlawful connection, but kept
drifting for a period of three years,
more or less. The trouble with him
-seems that he didn't letgo soon enough.
—The New York Star has given offi
cial notice to the Democratic party
that at least 100,000 wage-earners in
that State have resolved to act for
themselves, and, whatever else they
.may do, they will not vote for Cleve
land:- It has notified the party that in
1S81 Tammanv Hall issued its declara
tion of principles of which anti-mon
opoly was the key-note, and that Gov.
Cleveland was nominated and elected
on an explicit anti-monopoly platform,
devoid of evasion or equivocation.
Neither Gov. Cleveland nor the Legis
lative of 1883 fulfilled the expectations
of those who elected them. As the
consequence the Democrats lost con
trol of the Legislature, and the Gover
nor has forfeited the confidence of the
farmers and workingmen generally.
"These men have resolved to act for
themselves and it will be a very di(fi
eld task to find votes which will com
pensate for their defection." All of
which mav be regarded as a notifica
from Tammany that the machine
must substract 100,000 at least from its
ordinary total.

The following from a correspondent
lu tlie American Agriculturist ex
plains why places farther west1 are ai

"When a country experiences a
boom in emigration, it brings along
with it doctors, lawyers, bankers, dry
goods merchants, grocers, and me
chanics generally. They locate at the
nucleus of a village, and the land
buyers at first have generally to em

Business is consequently brisk fo/*

buyers have scattered to their various
prairie homes and become settled, the
demand for tlie services of professional
business and trades-people diminishes.

How to Paper a Boom.
An experienced workman in this
line thus advises: "Don't try to pa
per with a carpet down. Make paste,
cut bordering and the paper the day
before. If the wall has been white
washed it must be washed with vine
gar to nutralize the alkili in the lime.
If papered before and you wish the
paper removed soak with •water and
it will peel off. If convenient pro
vide a long board, as wide as the pa*
per, though a table or two will do.
The paper must be measured, placed
right side dosvn on the board, then
with a brush proceed to lay on the
paste. Not too thickly but over part
and be careful that the edges receive
their share. When completed double
within three inches from the top, the
paste sides being together, carry to
the wall, mount your chair and stick
your three inches pasted paper on the
wall at the top. That holds it now
strip down the other and see that it
fits just right then press to the wall
from the center right and left. Leave
no air under or when warm it will ex
pand and burst the paper.
Of course the paper must be matched
it will not do to measure by line un
less the walls are perfectly plumb.
Small figures make less waste, and
small room looks larger. Stripes make
a low room look higher, and if there are
no figures between, or in the stripe,
to match, there is no waste,
and no trouble in putting on.
If a narrow border is the style let it
be bright, if tlie paper is neutral, but
if that be bright the border had better
be bright or neutral.
If the paste be made too thick the
paper will be apt to crack and peel off
if too thin it will saturate the paper
too quickly and make it tender in
putting on. A counter duster (Brussels
brush) is nice to brush the paper to
the wall. White clean cloths will do
but it will not do to rub the paper with
them being damp the paint or color
rubs off the paper. The tables must
be dried each time after pasting, for
the same reason. Paste under paper
must not freeze neither
dry too quickly.
If whitewashing is done after papering
place a shingle next to the border, or
better, tack double strips of newspaper
wider than the border all around the
