The chairman of the republican national committee predicts that New York will give the republican candidate a majority of 75,(KX). The Catholic Universe declares em j phatically that "the press of the ! country should not cease from agitat | ing the arraignment of Gov. Cleve- ^ land's moral character until he resigns ! or is withdrawn from the democratic presidential nomination, or puts himself on his honest dofeiis? before the ^ country." The people are in sympathy with the utterances of the Universe. Hendricks' war record is too well known in Indiana to need ventilation here. Every old soldier knows that he never done a thing during the trying hour of our country's peril to encourage the soldier in the great struggle he was making to save the life of the nation. Cleveland had no political prominence then, and his war record is a blank, so far as we know, except that he hired a substitute to serve in his place in the Union army. Of his subsequent acts, however, soldiers can judge for themselves as to his feelings toward the battle scarred veterans of the war. hile governor he vetoed a bill for the benefit of the old soldiers, organizing the veteran reserve corps. AN'hile mayor he vetc)ed a bill appro-})riating S300 for the observance of memorial day. As governor he ve-t<jod a bill allowiiig Grand Army Posts to use state muskets, when bonds were given for their rrlnrn. He vetoed a bill which was passtnl by the legislature giving relief to a oue armed soldier emjiloyed about the capitol at AlV)any, who was made a heli)less cripple by an unfortunate accident. The Grand Army Posts of New York i)etitioned the legislature to make it a misdemeanor for any one not an honorably discharged soldier to wear a grand array badge; Cleveland vetoed the bill. A bill was passed to provide headstones for the soldiers who have died within the state and the governor tried to have it amended so he could designate what kind of headstones should be used. In this he failed. Taking all these things into consideration, it will be safe to conclude that the democratic candielate is no more the friend of the soldier than Tom Hendricks' record shows him to have been. It is a beautiful ticket vievv'ed from a soldier's standpoint. These quotations are respectfully referred to George William Curtis, the civil service reformer (i') who favors the democratic ticket: "Fifty-thousand olticeholders must y:o. The party will demand it."—Tmi.M \s A.HKNDitiCKs. »"FellowH-itizens. the onlv \\av that we can know that these 120,000 oliicc-holdi'rs are honest is to make achange."—Th<)Mas A. Hkm»iii«"ks. "The oflices will have to be filled bv the President and not bv tlie schoolmaster.'—Thoma.s a. hknorii ks^ Was Mr. Curtis expecting some such utterances as the above from the democratic standard-l^earers when he said in the republican convention at Chicago— "We are confronted with the Democratic party, very hi:u>iry, and. as vou mav well believe, very thirsty; a p.irty without a single deli-nite orinciple; a i)artv without aii\ ilistinct national jMilicy which it dares present to the country; a party which fell from ¡»ower as a consjiinicy against human rijilits, and now ;it-t^mpts ti» siieak back t<i power as a conspiracv for plunder and sjmils." The hostility of the Harper's to Mr. Blaine is caused by their not getting to publish his great work In 1883 the head of the hou.se wrote a letter eulogizing the plumed knight, and begging the privilege of publishing his book. In 1883, the Springfield (Mass.) Republican said that "Gov. Cleveland has simply shown himself an ill read and thick-witted lawyer." In the same year the New York Herald said that ''Governor Cleveland has cast his lot on the side of the great coporations and corporate manipulators, and staked his chances for further political preferment on their favor." This is what those who are supporting Cleveland now Uionght of their man and his acts in 1883. It shows what the working men are not slow to see that he is identified with corporate interests and opposed to that of labor. His acts all bear out the Herald'8 statements made a year ago. A Startling Discovery. Mr. Wm. Johnson, Huron, Dak., writes that his wife had been troubled wifli acute Bronchitis for many 'years, and that all remedies tried gave no permanent relief, until he procured a bottle of Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs, and Colds, \i4uch had a magical effect and produced a permanent cnre.

When the Irish revolt against the democratic party took place that carried consternation into the hearts of the leaders of that political organization, every effort was made by democratic politicians to stem the tide that was setting in against them, but to no purpose. Irishmen have too vivid a picture of the misery and suffering in the Emerald Isle, caused by the free trade policy of England, to wish to see English ideas on that subject prevail in this country. To prejudice Irishmen against Mr. Blaine, democratic journals that ought to have known better, openly and wickedly charged that he was responsible for the McSwiney troubles, but Judge Cooney, of San Francisco, McSwiney's attorney, after Carter Harrison make his charges in the matter against Mr. Blaine, and although a democrat in attendance at the Chicago convention, made this statement: "it is simply a matter of justice to Mr. Blaine to say that he had nothing whatever to do with the McSwiney matter. McSwiney was a well-to-do, respected cattle dealer of San Francisco, who paid a visit to County Donegal, Ii-eland, and while there, being no doubt fired by the wrongs of the tenantry, he was thrown into jail by the British government, where he remained for thirteen months before he was released. His family was still in San Francisco and he was still a citi-zEn of the United States, Accordingly, at the solicitation of the Knights of St. Patrick of San Francisco, I drew up a brief of the case and transmitted it to Senator Farley and Gen. Bosecrans. I had almost immediate advices that the matter had been presented to the State Department, and that assurances had been given that speedy action would be taken. The State Department did at once forward the papers to Minister Lowell, but there the matter seems to have ended. But all this happened in 1882, after Garfield had been assasinated, Arthur had become his successor, and Blaine had been supplanted in the Cabinet by Freling-huysen. I have been thus explict because, as I have said, I do not wish injustice to be done to any man, as was certainly done by Mayor Harrison in his strictures upon Blaine in this matter."

R. M. Johnson, of Goshen, and that democratic "blatherskite" of southern Indiana, Jason Brown, which, we learn, in many particulars, was incorrect. Col. Johnson, an able and consistent democrat, is our personal friend, and thinking that the article wo refered to might have done him an injustice, and seeing, later, in the Chicago Times, what purports to be a correct account of the affair, we reproduce it below, in justice to all parties. The Times says: Elkhart, Ind., July 22d. To the Editor:—I have just learned that a false representation of the altercation which took place between Col. R. M. Johnson, of Goshen, and one Brown, at the headquarters of the Indiana delegation at the democratic convertion at Chicago, is being industriously circulated by the enemies of the colonel for the purpose of injuring him. As I was an eye witness of the affair I propose to give you a statement of it as it occurred. Mr. McDonald, of the Ligonier Banner, and Col. Johnson were sitting in a corner of the room talking about what effect the drive-well matter in northern Indiana would have against Senator McDonald if he would be nominated for president While they were thus engaged. Brown, who was a stranger to us all, came and sat down near by, and, after listening a while and unspoken to by either of the party, asked them what business they had to come in there and got up a feeling against Senator McDonald ? Col. Johnson replied that they were not doing anything of the kind; that they were n^rely saying that the drive-well matter would lose him votes and no one could help it, although there was no reason for it. Brown said Senator McDonald only acted as an attorney in those cases, and in talking the way they did about it they talked like d—d fools. Col. Johnson very mildly but firmly responded: "If you talk that way, we do not have any better opinion of you than you seem to have of us." Brown replied scur rilously, and Col. Johnson said: "I don't allow any man to talk that way to me, and if you will get up I will thrash you in a holy minute." IViends interfered and said to the Col onoT that Brown was drunk and cripple, and he should not mind any thing that he said. Col. Johnson said: "If that is the case I will have nothing to do with him, and nothing that he may say is worthy of my attention." Brown was taken off, while Col. Johnson was immediately surrounded by the delegates and others, who thanked him for his manly conduct and dignified behavior. SIMMERED DOWN. James G. Blaine has the "American Instinct" to Defend the Honor of Him. self and Family When Assailed. He Can Afford to Have the Charges In. vestigated by the Courts.5 PER CENT. 18 S.WED BV BUVINO YOUR HARDWARE, STOVES, -OF- J. Cr. Is/L^-RTXIST The long-winded democratic platform makers used up a couple of col-ums of space in the effort to make their platform meaningless to the masses, but when simmered down it can be condensed into the following: part first. "We want all the postoffices." part second. "Anything to catch votes." part third. "All things to all men." part fourth. "On the subject of polygamy we have nothing to say." Some time ago the democracy, to counteract the withering effects of the charges that were made against Mr. Cleveland, and which seem to bo so well founded, revived an old story against Mr. Blaine which was first started by a correspondent of a Chicago paper, in 1873, who afterward, in an affidavit, admitted its falsity, and which Henry Watterson, of the Courier-Journal, refused to use, as he had investigated the charges and found them false. A few days ago the Indianapolis Sentinel, under the hend of "Can Blaine Afford It?" republished these charges as follows: There is hardly an intelligent man in the country who has not heard that James G. Blaine betrayed the girl whom he married, and then only married her at the muzzle of a shotgun. The Democratic press has had the magnanimity not to put forth these reports, which must cause pain to the members of Mr. Blaine's family. The Republican papers have long known of them, and have allowed them to go undenied. If Mr. Blaine was the scoundrel to betray an innocent girl; if, after despoiling her, he was the craven to refuse her legal redress, giving legitimacy to her child, until a loaded shotgun stimulated his conscience—then there is a blot on his private character more foul, if possible, than any of the countless stains on his political record. His conduct discloses a moral obliquity rendering him undeserving social confidence and an unfit man to be President A copy of this article was forwarded to IVIr. Blaine, by Mr. Holloway, of Indianapolis, who received the following telegram from the Maine statesman: W. R. Holloway, Indianapolis: I have this moment received the atrocious libel of the Indianapolis Sentinel. The story is utterly and abominably false in every statement and in every implication. Political slanders I do not stop to notice, but this editor assails the honor of my wife and my children. I desire you, without an hour's delay, to employ the proper attorney and have the responsible publisher of the Sentinel sued for libel in the United States Circuit Court of Indiana. It is my only remedy, and I am sure that the honorable Democrats, alike vrith honorable Republicans, will justify me in defending the honor of my family, if need be, with my life. James G. Blaine. Suits have been commenced in the Federal Court against Mr. Shoemaker, proprietor of the Sentinel, who will find that an honorable man, can, at all times, and under all circumstances, afford to defend the honor of his wife and children. Mr. Blaine courts an investigating instead of sneaking off into the Adirondacks to escape the indignation of an indignant people. Mr. Blaine is the defender of the honor of all Americans, but when the honor of his wife and children is brought into question, the American people will justify him in their good name, "if need be, with his life." Some Serious Questions. Do you experience a growing tendency to billiousness f Are you becoming more "nervous" than you used to be ? Do you find yourself getting weak, without knowing why? These things are all red flags—danger signals. They warn you of greater maladies coming. One bottle of Parker's Tonic now will scatter these symptoms. It acts gently, surely and without pain, on the stomach, liver, kidneys and blood. From present appearances the electoral vote of England will be cast solid for Cleveland. Americans, however, prefer a man with "American instincts," and that's Jim Blaine. Opening the Fountains. In numberless bulbs beneath the skin is secreted the liquid substance which gives the hair its texture, color and gloss. When this secretion stops, the hair begins at once to become dry, lustreless, brittle and gray. Is that the condition of your hair? If so, apply Parker,s Hair Balsam at once. It will restore the color, gloss and life by renewing the action of nature. The Balsam is not an oil, not a dye, but an elegant toilet article, highly appreciated because of its cleanliness. The independent movement in the interest of the democratic party is said to be too thin to be used as a democratic transparancy. —The New £ba only 50 cts. from now until after the election. Try it.
