THURSDAY, NOV. 13, 1884. p
The Herald is in the highest respect a Fami
ly Newspaper, devoted to the material in- n
terests of the people of this County and the
state. It circulates extensively, and as an tt
Advertising medium offers unrivalled ad

Cleveland Is Elected.
We have no Bantum Roosters nor
game cocks to head this article, but
it is glory enough to be able to say
Notwithstanding the mighty efforts
of the Republican party, w as Dem
ocrats rejoice to-day. Rejoice with a
joy unspeakable-almost.
All over the length and breadth of
the land the wires have carried the
joyful tidings, and are still vibrating
with the glorious news of this great
moral and political victory, of right
over wrong, honesty over rascality
and plunder. That we are once more C
free from the unscrupulous exactions
of that party is enough to cause a
thrill of joy to animate the heart, and
send the blood coursing through the .
veins with redoubled speed. Peace
like a dove will sit upon the country.
Gov. Cleveland's language is worthy C
of repetition, he said on the 6th: "I c
believe I. have been elected Presi
dent, and nothing but the grossest
fraud can keep me out of it; and
that we will not permit." No, never.
The days before us are halcyon in
comp!exion, and the advancement of
good before the people of this State,
and the whole South, are beyond ex
pression. A sound security will be
felt, absolute security from strata.
gems, misrule and conspiracies. and
this great result has been brought
about by last Tuesday's vote. C

Since the last vote was polled on I
*Tuesday evening, the public mind t
has been stirred to its profoundest t
depths. Cleveland or Blaine, that t
was the question. The last dispatch l
received as we were getting re ady for c
press, Wednesday night the 5th, was 1
not of a character to encourage the r
good dcemocratic citizens of this coun- l
ty or State. There was nothing -
cheering or hopeful in it, the public c
pulse beat feebly. It was very un
like what we were looking, hoping, t
and waiting for, it served as a wet C
blanket, and the bottom seemed as if 3
it had suddenly dropped out. Wise- a
ly we withheld its publication, it was li
cruel to disseminate it, as perhaps
with the sunrise thme cloud which hung
*e uwolormight bedispersed.
The next gale which swept from the
North might infuse new hope, new
life, ne-s' energy in. the heart, and
send the warm, red demoQratic blood
rushing through our vein~s. There
was too much at stake to check..
chill the hope which centeredl on the
election of Mr. Cleveland, the demo
cratic choice, the wan who is to save
the c-ountry. As it was hoped so it I
proved, the next news to us was more
Seze York State has gone Democratie.

edgy was a day of unparalleled ex
enent, surpassing even the experi
ce following the election of 1876.
frem..dayn the streets were
icrowded by enthusiastic Republicans,
who had taken the town in the belief
I that Blaine and Logan had been
elected, but the reports furnished at
midday put a different phase upon
affairs, and upon the receipt of a re
port that the New York Trihacne had S
conceded the State to Cleveland,
which was posted up on the bulletin 1
boards, the Democrats appeared in
great numbers. Their hats were dec
orated with roosters and (.evices, and
they carried brooms. Headed by a
band they paraded t.rough the prin
cipal streets, raising a deafening din r
with fish horns. They called on
Hendricks, filling the spacious yard
and street in front of his residence,
and when he appeared the noise was
simply terrific. Finally something
like order was restored, and Mr. Hen-:
dricks said:
"Gentlemen, I am taken by sur
prise by this large collection of my
fellow-citizens. I appreciate flow well
you have done, and the honest senti
ments which animate you. I have
no satisfactory information, but I
have no doubt that the ticket which
was nominated in Chicago on July 8
has been elected. [Applause.] But
this is a matter of such grave im
portance that I would like to know
very conclusively before I make any
remarks. This has been the most!
extraordinary contest I have ever
been connected with. There has been
the most profound sentiment and
anxiety among the people, and for
thirteen weeks I have been part of
the interested mass of my fellow
citizens. I have done everything to
promote this result. If you appreci
ate it, I thank you. [Greatap
plause.] I suppose that by evening
we shall have full information. Then
I shall be very glad to join you in
some expressions of gratification.
Until that time, I think 1 will say
good-bye to you."
The New York correspondent of
the ecs and Courier, says:
-The scenes in this city to-day,
Nov. 7th, have been but the repetition
of those ofyesterday-crowds around
the down-town bulletin boards during
the day and crowds around the polit
ical headquarters during the evening.
There is a manifest abatement of the
excitement, caused by the general
belief that Cleveland is elected and
that the Republicans are powerless to
count him out.
But this is only temporary. The
powder is there, and so is the alterna
tive. Let it appear for a moment
that there is a danger of Cleveland
being defrauded, and a storm will
break such as has never been known.
Men of all classes, those who voted
for Blaine as well as those who sup
ported Cleveland, are open in their
declaration that they are willing to
shoulder a musket, if i- be necessary,
in order to enforce the will of the
people "

liberately declared."
A. P. G oRuux,
Chairman Executive Committee.
The above are only a few of the
expressions of opinion as to this
great Democratic v torv, all of
which we give place to :n, l'reference

public mind is all engrossed at this

(From the New York Herald of Suaday.) rn
This morning the Herald's assurance to the kt
cople of this nation that "All's quiet along it
fanbattan Island' will carry tidings of cqual cot
ignificance to millions of people interested to
now the outcome in-the metropolis of the cer
inited States. dis
But it harn't been so long. G:
The IIerald is a newspaper, but it riid not on Pr
'hur-d:y tell all it knew. fhe llir.;:ld goe
lot atone- :o men upoti ;he street and to womeni Cot
.nd children in their homics. Its stories are er
cad not alone by lawyers and bankers and Cot
i:kers and tailors, but by ladies in their bon- ag
loirs and by others in their stores and -hops, th
y pas-engers in the railway trains and by Vo
vaiters in the d.pots. Had it told what it : be
:new it would have said: We are on the eve
if a revolution; the official breast is disturbed; or
nticipations of something more than idle talk Bu
nd gossip and bluster on the streets have it
aused our officials to lay in ammunition, to ar
tall out the police and put every man on duty, ha
tither on the streets or in stationhoue reserve. pa
such ideas once started soon become pregnant, ha
tnd in their train come other ideas, multitud:
tously processional and dangerous to a degree. S
Had the truth been told, not alone the tiious- be
ind roughs from Philadelphia and their well
:ermed "friends" from other cities, not alone G<
he gambling fraternity from Boston and the th
)ullies, who, strange to say, make their nests 10(
ilong the rock bound shores of the Hudson,
ut the riff-ratf froir J,rsey City and Brooklyn, to
he ruffians from Staten Island-"cbso;utely and t
iteral!v the ho-de" cf them who lire by tteir sU
oaser wits, would have come tumbling pell- Co
nell into the peaceable streets of New York, th
vhere, minging with the crowds already ex- m
:ited and gathered in significant places, they Ii
won!d have added fuel to the pyre and fur
tshed the blazing torch besides. That would Pr
bre meant something beside,"Hurrai, boys!' tie
1'he cries would not have been "Regards to w.
rs. Fisher!" or "Blaine! Blaine! the thief o
Prom Maine!" But, "Where is the house of b(
this rich man?" Where the bank! Where
he well stored magazine? Where the ware
bouse filled wilh plunder? ['he torch and axe
atl "jimmy" would have taken the place of at
the waving hats and shaking canms. ta
Could this story have been told?
Not precisely.
But it was true, all the same.
It was, indeed. And nobody knew it better (k
titan the Governor of the State, and the mayor
of the city, and the board of police, and the pt
United States marshal, and the chief supervisor "
of elections, and the men whose hands are tic
upon the helm of affairs deciding which way w
the craft shon!d steer toward an honest deter- cI
min ation of the votes of the people, or a dis,
Ito nest twist of what would then be a farce
our popular election.
The wisdom of the Herald's course is uni- 0
versally conceded. Enough was told to show PM
to the people who control those things-for it
strange as it may seem these things are con
trolled-that the danger they were threatningly ht
wielding over this metropolis was fully under- st
stod and absolutely appreciated. Nay, more,
that had it come the responsibility would have
been laid at the feet and placed upon the heads f
of those who had it in their power to cotrotl gi
it in the first instance.
That they had it in their power to control it hi
was from the outset proved--first, by the tt
changed tone of certain bulletins; second, by bi
the extraordinary agility with which the ma- ti:
jorities were sprung from the columns where ha
they didn't belong to the places where they
ought to go; third, by that extraordinary tele
gram fto Mr. Jay Gould to Governor Grover
Clevelatd, impudently congratulating him dtl
that the people of the State which had once th
hefore honored him had again done their part g<
to swell the patriotic tile that floated him to
the very pinnacle of American ambition. ti

thoroughly exploited than by the changed tone
of certain monopolist speculators and stock
jobbers and their organs on Friday morning.
