Warren Ledger (Newspaper) - June 27, 1884, Warren, Pennsylvania WABKEN LEDGER THIRTY-FIFTH YEAR. CORRESPONDENCE: FUOM THE XATIOXAL CAPITAL. WASHINGTON, D. C-, June 21, 1884. From our Regular Correspondent. I begin to think that it will make but very little difference who the Democratic nominee at Chicago will be, or where he comes trom, for he is going to be elected anyway. The revolt against Blaine and Logan has already (in two weeks after the nominations) penetrated every portion of the country, and evoked trom the decent portion of "the grand old party an universal cry for a change. There was not among the baker's dozen of Republican candi- dates before the Chicago convention, any one man so positively bad as Blaine, yet there would have been open and bold re- bellion against the selection of the best of them, because of the old feud which has finally effected a hopeless disruption of the party. Granting that New York cannot agree upon the presentation of a candi- date, there seems to be sentiment enough outside of the State to make a selection for her, and the choice cannot out fall upon Governor Cleveland, who. nest to Tilden, stand for all that is to be sought in the way of a reformation of our political methods. I suppose that John Logan's military record is not to be questioned, and I don't know that anybody desires to question it, but in these piping times of peace we naturally inquire something about the record of men who arrogate to themselves a claim to leadership ia civil affairs. Lo- gan had no sooner entered into public life than he began to precipitate his family and friends upon the public exchequer, and his family was the largest that has been known since the days of Maccabeus. He has quartered upon the military and civil list a horde of political cormorants larger than any Senator or Representative was ever responsible for before, and has adroitly cultivated the friendship of each succeed- ing administration to the extent of retain- ing the patronage not only of his own State but of the whole Northwest, wherein he has made places for that never to-be- satiated host of place-seekers nestled in the raeks ofthe R. It ia with this mostainsavorT record that Logan now goes before the people of this great country asking to be given the second highest position in the Government in which the opportunities of an increased patronage are the sole inducements for his ready ac- ceptance of the nomination. The Senate has had a genuine sensation this first, and probably the last of the session. It was an emeute between the massive Ingails, of Kansas, and Father Brown, of Georgia, in which it is generally, conceded that the conceited Ingails came off second best. The interpolation of the Record that Ingails charged upon Brown, amounted to nothing, even if true, and it only shown that Ingails was attempting to gain a little cheap notoriety as a Senatorial blackguard, in selecting for his victim one whose age at least should have shielded kim from a public insult of this character. It is possible, though not at all probable, that Congress will adjourn in the early part of July. Should the House at once take up the business that the Senate has pre- pared for it, and which has Deen on the Speaker's table for six week, it can rush it through and adjourn by that time. But there seems to be a disposition on the part of both Senators and Representatives to await the action of the coming Democratic Convention, iu order to inject a few hun- dred campaign speeches into the RccoiA and have them printed and circulated as Government expense. I wrote to you sometime since about the failure of the Midlletons, and that it was a bad one all around. It turns out, how- ever, that the scoundrelism connected with this failure is a complete discount upon the Grant-Ward diabolism, and ruin has been wrought upon many a poor widow and orphan whose money was confidingly lied up in the hands of these aristocratic robbers. The Middletons (father and son) had beeu clerics of the United Slates Supreme Court since the foundation of the Government up to the time of the death (two or three ycaia asxo) of D. W. Middlctou, who left his son (another D. W. Middleton) an ample tortunc, gathered through the means of an clastic conscience and a constructive fee- Inll. When the younger Middleton started his bank, he sot McKir.ney (the successor of his father in the cleik's office) to do banking with him. .in-! deposit the court's f'ind-3.
