Mr. Blaine says he wanU every Re
publican paper of the United States to
tiuMish the same, therefore it does
neera a lilt tie Htrango that the Repub'
liran Associated Prens should give hut
one-twelfth part of a vindication. There
fe fifteen letters that were puUinhrd
in 1876. If any Republican paper
wants to publish these fifteen letters
we will give information as to where it
may find the snrr.o printed. If any
Blaine paper has printed them, we
have yet to hear of it
After three and a half months, dur

the "attorney of Jay uoulrl, as benu
tor EJmundx termed him is defended
ly Jay Gould's newspaper, the N. Y
Tribune. In the letter of Blaine to
Fisher asking him (Fishor) to sign the
enclosed letter there are many protes

bune says that he is innocent. The
rentlemen behind the bars all indulge
in that kind of talk, Were ho really

Would he rite, like a fool, "Our vil

1 But the most nli.Hurdly humorous
N assertion of theTribune, is that "Blaine
wm tho victim of Warren Fisher,"
who "deluded" Blaine, Blaine "induced
to in vol vo hiiusnlf slid friends"
Hero is an t x tract or two from letters
written by Blaine: Juno 29, 1869, he
wrote: "I do nut feel that I shall
prove a deadhead in tho enterprise
if I embark in it. I see various chan
nels in which I know I can be useful."
July 2d 18G9 Blaine wroto as follows:
"What I wroto you on tho 29th was
intended to bring Caldwell to a defi
nite proposition, that w all " Mr Blaine
wrote a letter detailing his snrvices.
On the 4 tli of October he could not get
"a definite understandum" with Cald
well. The reader will appreciate the
rare humor of the cane wlntn he finds
out that Blaine wroto four beg
ging lottors, and that liu was admitted
to the enterprise five months afier he
sought entrance. We wk which one
was the reluctant party, Bluine or
Fisher. If this was a common stock
transaction, if Blaine paid the market
price, why did it take five months to
perfect the bargain! Why did Blaine
write that ho would not "prove a dead
head in the enterprise." He ' thought
the proposition to admit me to
the railroad enterprise is as gener
ous at I could desire." "Your liberal
mode of dealing with mo" giving him
a chance to buy "on the open Boston
market," was enough to call forth Mr.
Blaine's fervent thanks, a chance that
was open to any of tho 44,000,000
people that Mr. Bluine "took into his
Next week we shall give the agree
ments of Warren Fisher with "A. V.

Maine. The terms of the article are
that Warr-sn Fisher is to deliver $13n,
000 worth of 7 per cent londs, and
$32,500 worth of 6s on the receipt of
1130.000 from J. O. Blaine. Then "it

Blaino under this agreemnt shall be
reduced in the same proportion that the

gate amount." Blaine could not get
the parties to take 1 1 30,000 worth of
honds so that Blainn did not receive
$32,500 in bonds; Mulligan swore
that Blain" received 810,500, worth of
honds and produced a memorandum
in Blaine's own handwriting averring
his statement. BUine swore on this
point that he didn't want his private
business meddled with, that was all
til" committee could get nut of him.
Blaine did not consider those letts-rs

Star Route Elkins,
To Mr. Steve Elkins more than any
other living man is Blaine ii.tluUed
for his nomination. Ho was Blaine's
manager at Chicago, directed his forces
and presided at the Blaino headquar
ters at that time. He is secretary
of the National Republican Committee,
put there by his personal and political
friend, Blaine. Concerning this gen.
tleman Mr. Dorsey wrote to the Spring
er Investigating Committee as follows;
& B. Elkins, UuiteJ Bank Building,
Jsew lork. lias proiaiiy a larger
knowledge than any other person of all
tho star route matters and the moneys
paid, George E. Spencer demanded of
thelat J. W. Rosier and myself $12,
000 to pay Mr. Elkins for the purpose
of avoiding indictment and prosecution,
and I replied thai I would not pay n
penny and never did. I would call
for all the books and pnpers touching
this matter in the hands of the Sixth
Auditor, and put an expert in charge
of them, and you will ascertain, first,
that I never received a cent from the
Government as a star-route contractor,
and second, that the men who did re
ceive it were never prosecuted.
What would our people think if the
authorities of Lnne county would levy
and keep 4V, W anovn expanses in
the county treasury. That is the po'i
cy of tho General Government, i r
which the Republican party is respon
sible. There is a surplus of over $400,
000,000 in the Federal Treasury.
Twenty thousand Irish-Americans
voters met in New York City to in
dorse Cleveland and Hendricks. Mrs.
Pornell, mother of Chas. Stewart Tar
noli, was present. Immense enthus
iasm was manifested. Boyle O'Reillv
one of the foremost literary men of the
English speaking world, Congressman
Collins and Senator Jones, of Florida,
were the speakers.
Mr. Flower, who was Tammany's
candidate at Chicago, says New York
is food for 60,000 majority for Cleve
Robbery at Salem.
Last Sunday morning the store nf Cald
well, flecker & Co, was burglarized o( about
$4,000 worth of flue good. Detective were
placed to work immediately and the goons
were found secreted iu the brush about three
mites north of the city. They were left as
found and a watoli set to catch the thief
when he returned to remove them. This
plan proved siiocesiiful, for shortly after
nihtlall he returned with hi i team and was
secured by Sherd! Miuto and his pntu. is
their surprise, the thief proved to he a Mr A
Caldwell, a brothiir of the senior member of
the linn robbed. Ilu was a 'uomptuied by
his two little daughters, the ehlett buin
but 12 yea's old. Ho .nude no attempt to
deny his crime, but gave as his reason fir
committing the act that tho firm was owing
him, ud as he considered them "slukey" liu
took that method nf getting his money back.
Ho detailed the inanuei in which he accom
plished the deed, which was dun by secret
ing his eldoat daughter in the store during
Saturday, with the initractb m to open the
door for him when she heaid the town clock
strike 12. This waa ftithfully done, the
goods carried out and hauled awny. The
pdiceman saw the wsgon drive through the
street, but thought nothing strange of it.
The alarm was immediately set up that he
was insane, and en Mom' ay h was examined
for insanity, but the examining physicians
pronounced him sane and he waa rtmauded
to jnil. A preliminary rxaiuination was
gien the thief Tuesday, but he waived ex
amination (ayinu he want ml the case tn b

placed his bonds at $.",000, uod lie lieiuu un

Walton's brick and titled it up with the in

after much delay he ahtndoned tSe projeet
