A Game of Bluff.
In the following article the New York
Herald show bow tlie Republican are play
ing a gwna of bluff. The Herald aaji:
A ceutlt'Muu writel to ask if the Herald
will Cclp tit in out of h pc rpU'Xity. Hu say:
Cim yen txplnin this Hi, Loin muddle? I
liuve upp(iMi'il Mint tlm Republicans went
into tlii' war iiiiciiiimi (iii'V wt re iletorim ii
that all Aii.i licuiiH sliutilil rulislitliUouo in
pie aud ono mttiou. And now when tLut
desired result hue been reached they ieem
equally determined to kocp the North and
Bouth apart. What in the name of common
sense don this wean?
And iu reply to the above query the Her
aid proceed! as follows;
Well, it. means politics, and very poor pol
itics; that is all. There ii no common aenie
in it, much less is there any patriotism, but
at a piece of deroaKogio strategy it baa ita
vnlae to the Republican lenders. You netd
not be alarmed about it. It bag no signifi
cance and will produce no results. The peo
ple already aee that it is simply a game of
bluff, whose constituent elements consist in
equal part of very loud talking, three little
palsiea, bloody shirt, which bus at last
outlived iu usefulness, and a few threat of
personal violence because the President in
sist that the cruel war is over.
The organ of the Itupublican party have
onle oue motto, aud if you keen that in mind
you will understand all the tine rhetorical
trapeze work which they are now getting in.
The motto is, "Whon the bloody shirt goe
to to the laundry, we go to the cemetery
So far a the administration of the coun
try goes, the Democrats are firmly filed in
the driver's seat, the obedient and willing
team goe at a good, honest rate up bill and
down, and the pussengera are enjoying them
selves thoroughly. T he natural coach is be
ing driven without the financial iolt of the
last twenty years, and the mud bole are
carefully avoided. Republican like lilaine,
Sherman, and Foruker see this and are al
most frantic. In 1H81 they borrowed the
trumpet of Gabriel and blew a blast through
out the land to the effect that if Demo
cratic coachman was allowed to handle the
rein there would be in the near future the
most awful npset and the most terrible ag
gregation of bruises and broken bone aud
other disaster that the human mind could
eonceive. Imagine their horror, wbon they
awoke to the fact that the finest coachmen
in the country are Democrats that the peoplo
are convinced of thi fact, and therefore rel
egated the Republicans to reserved scat on
the inside for the indefinite future.
Of course, the Republican party wanta to
get back to Washington. That is perfectly
natural and perfectly proper. If tbey have
anything to ay to the voters of this conutry
which is worth listeuiug to the people are
ready to boar. For, after all, what the great
body of Americans want i a itublo, an Ion
est, an economical aud peaceful government.
They do not euro a pin's worth for a party
as such, neither tlio Republican nor the
Democrat lo, but they do care good deal
fur their commercial interests, for general
prosperity and for everything which goe to
make us atroug untiou. They invited the
Republican leaders to step down simply be
cause their trading propensities were too
fully dovelopod. They discovered that pub
Ho olhce, which should be a public trust,
wa prized a a bartender prize a lemon
for the juice that can be got out of it; that
there wero numerous political ring which
were robbing iho people of tho national do
main, using the Tension Office to buy vote
with and apetidiug score of million on
.navy which was somehow all "in your eye."
In a word the people were "tired" and iu
November 1S81 they said so.
Hut now, on the eve of another Tresidou
tial elcotlnn, if the Republicans have any
thing to offer, why, the people are quite wif
' -Rug to look the goods over aud pas judg
ment on them. Tlwir cry i that they want
to si ve the Union, but whon asked how they
propose to do it thev fruntioally pull out thi
ragged old shirt ami three wriukled palsies,
Ih patent for which lini beoeu applied for.
If you oak again how they can save the
country with a shut aud a few palsies, w
answer that w don't quit see onrselve.
Still, so far as is known, these are the only
assets of the Republican aaviors.
President Clevclaud baa in two year sign
ed BU3 private pension bill which ia 378
more than Grant approved in eight year,
6I1U more than lUyl gjgnpj j nj, four

Garfield aud Arthur comuiued. Cleveland
bai signed three general pension bills, which
have given new or increased pensions to

aud their kindred iu the pension bureau than
when Cleveland was elected. For the first
time sine the war every penslou agent is a
I nion soldier and every pension examiner ia
a soldier or a soldier' widow.
John Sherman write that be is for Hlaiue
if be cannot aeoure tho presidential uomina
tiou himself. We have little faith in the sin
eerily nf the cold, severe Sherman. Heoould
have said nothing else at this time, aud if he
bad said lesa it would be ure to rouse the
enthusiastic resentment of Hlaiue' admirer
in and out of Ohio. Wily John knew rery
well that be must agree to upport lilaine iu
