' I have your letter of the 19th inst,
I cannot consider with favor your Bug.
geation of a cliangd 'in the national
ticket. The action of the convention
cannot now bo considered. It n.ust
atand, and I think . it ought to stand.
I do not agree with you "in respect to
the proUlile result; I think the proU
bilities are favorable to the success of
our ticket. Tbe "Cleveland scandal
will not have weight with the people
and ought not to have weight. It U
enworthy the national aontest. .Three

test of a popular canvass, once for the
office of mayor of lis, own city, and
each time be lias're ceired the iudorso
meat of his own neighbor! by a ots
brgtly above his party strength, What
ever there may have bee a existing be.
fore that, it is not iunt for him or the
people now to revive it. , The publio
welfare requires that he be judged ' by
his capability add fitness for the dis
charge of responsible. an4 ., jtpportanc

Ktidr (or Trial.
The charges made against Blaine by
the Indianapolis Sentinel were pub
lished by, at least, two'papers in 1870
eight years ago. Considering this fact
it is difficult to understand why
Ulaine should desire that suit should be
brought immediately. He has re
strained bis fiery ardor for some years
it looks as if a few weeks of the
;tory would not injure the author of the
famous -Mulligan letteis. From the
tiollowiog ' dispatch to the Portland

WepuMish Mr. Blaine's explana.
tion of liu fconnedion with the I R.
Railroid. 7 The "vindication." as it is
called, has aueard in the Republican
papers of this State but yet not one
has had the candor to give tho Mulli
gan letters which appeared a month
later. Sir. Blaine's speech . is to be
found on page 2723 of the Congression
al Record for 187C:
"In common with hundreds of oth
er people in New England and other
parts of the country, I bought some of
these bonds not a very large amount
paying for them at precisely the same
rate that others paid. I never heard
and do not believe that the Little Rock
Company, which I know is controlled
by highly honorable men, ever parted
with a bond to any person except at
the regular market price fixed for their
Mr. Blaine then asserts that he lost
120,000 in this venture, and paid mon
ey out of his own pocket to sustain the
L R, Railroad. He then continues:
"My whole, connection with this road
has been as open as the day.' ' If there
had been anything to conceal altout it
I ahould never have touched it Wher
ever concealment is desirable, avoid
ance is advisable, and I do not know
any better test to apply to the honor
and fairness of a business transaction.
. "In the seven intervening
years since the Little Rock and Fort
Smith bonds were placed on the mar
ket, I know few investments that have
not been more affected by the legisla
tion of Congress. But this case does
not require to be shielded by any other
comparisons or citations. For I repeat
that the Little Rock road derived all it
had from vtha State of Arkansas
and not from Congress,' It was in the
discretion of Congress to give or with-
iVflm thn Kfjiav hut. if. was unlal
IU uu uiovivvivii V UU UlUWC lV
or withhold from the Little Rock Rail
road companv. '.V- Third,
that instead of receiving bonds of th
Little Rock and Fort Smith rRpad as
a gratuity, I never had one except at
the regular market price, and that in
stead of aiaking a large fortune out of
company I have incurred a severe pe
cuniary lots from my investment in its
securities, which I still retain. And
out of such affairs as this grows the
popular gossip of large fortunes
amassed in Congress.

George F. Edmunds was virulently
assaulted by many Republican jour
rals in the months before the
Chicago conventions. He remained
aitent until an admirer of Blaine ac
cused Senator Edmunds of participa
tion in a railroad scheme exactly alike
Blaine's L, R. R. affair. Of course the
admirer could see nothing wrong in
that, bat we incline to think that Mr.
Edmunds did; as he immediately, with
out waiting even one day, published
a complete refutation, and in a bitterly
Mtirical way, asked that his name he
t not mentioned with that of J&s. G.
Blaine, Probably he was of the opin
ion of the Portland Oregonian of April
24, 1884, that "tho recollection made
by publication of the "Mulligan letter"
will not down."
During the la'.e civil war, the three
Cleveland boys held a consultation, and
two joined the army, while Grover
Cleveland iwaa to remain home and
care for the roether and sister. Un
fortunately Grover was drafted, but at
onee secured a substitute. When the
Legislature was reimbursing those
who had paid sutatilutes, Mr. Cleve

inany manner. Lika Mr. Cleveland,
