Car d In Reference to Pres
idential Election Tele-
We have received the following by
telegraph from the Wsstt rn "Unirn
Company, in refirtnc to certain
charges about holding hark election
returns which fully explains the pcm
tion of the company ia the matter.
New York, Nov. 26, 1884.
Now, since the Presidential election
is ended, and the excitement incident
to a close political contest has abated,
it is proper to say that we are pre
pared to show, most conclusively, the
utter groundlessness of all charges
against the Western Union Telegraph
Company of partiality in reporting, or
witholding the election returns of the
State of New York. I deny in the
most emphatic manner that tie West
ern Union Company delayed, altered
or witheld election returns of this
State, or any other State, or tamper
ed with them in any way. It had
nothing whatever to do with the re
turns of the State of New- York, ex
cept to transmit them over its lines,
as prepared by agents of the Associ t
ed Press. All the returns of the
State were collected by the Associated
Press; all the compiling was done in
its offices, by its own agents, and all
bulletins were prepared by it, and cop
its wre simply delivered to Mr. Som
rville, Supt. of newspaper service, for
general distribution to the public.
This Company had nothing wliatev.
er to do with making (he bulletins,
nor did any officer or agent or other
person connected with, or interested
in this company, except operators who
transmitted the returns, have access
to, or see any of them until bulletins
had been made up therefrom in the
Associated Press office and handed to
us for public distribution, and I have
no reason to believe agent of the
Associated Press acted otherwise than
in any other important matter. Or
dinarily many of our offices are not
kept open for business after 8 o'clock
p. i. To assist in meeting extraordi
narily expense of the extra employ
ment of several thousand night opera
tors, we have had for mauy years, ar
rangements with press associations
giving us the privilege of selling bulle
tics to political clubs and 'other sub
scribing customers. We simply took
the 1 ssociated Press bulletins as that
association had made them up and de
livered them, as heretofore, to cus
tomers who had subscribed for them,
The charge that returns were pur
pesely witheld, and that there ward
unusual delay in reporting them, is
entirely false; instead of such delay
there was extraordinary promptness.
Never before have reports from so
many election districts been received
within so short a time. Within 48
hours after the count of ballots began,
returns were received from 98 per
cent of 3,000 election districts in the
Although the night of the election
was stormy, and there was some trou
ble working the wires, no delay oc
curred in any reports handed in to our
offices outside the city of New York,
end within the city, the telegraphic
service was as nearly perfect as it was
possible tw make it, and the only trou
ble was with some of the short wires
hastily spread for temporary use.
It is here to be noted that hereto
fore the majorities reported from the
most populous, and therefore the most
accessible counties, havo been so de
cisive .hat the popular mind has been
set at rest respecting result of election
on first night,, and there being no hope
or fear of a change in general results
aubsequent returns more or less tardy,
have strangled in unheeded.
In two instance in thia State, I
have been informed that the county
canvassers, who met one week after
the election this year, had to adjourn
over because the County Clerks had,
up to that time, been unable to get in
the votes of their counties. The only
other returns complained of were
those of Indiana, when, at the requat,t
of the political committees and the
press, in absence of any agent of the
Associated Press, the reports, came
through at any time and were sent
out by our Superintendent,. Mr. J. F.
Wallack, who. used every effort to- ob
tain all tin returns a speedily as pos
sible. I consider the demand for any in
vestigation of that service made by. the
Indianapolis "Sentinel," and also by
llr. Wallack himself, reasonable and
proper, and I have asked the Chairman
of the Indiana Democratic State Com
mittee to take part in the iuvestiga
tion, or to name a representative to
The management of this, company

What their individual political epic.
iuus uitj has never beau iu any cusp,
called iuto question, nor have their
votes ever been canvassed or asce:
tained; but of those with whom I per
sonally came in contact, I know that
there are quite at many Democrats as
Republicans. It is, therefore, mani
festly absurd to think that the servi
ces ef the cempan) could be converted
into a party machine, or could in any
way distort or stifle the facts, when
such an attempted conspiracy could
only have been made by the aid
ot a large number of members of tVe
political party which it was designed
Nokvin Gkken, President.
The election is over and the re;ult is
tli n same as it has been for so many
years our candidate is defeated. No
person has ever tried harder to le on
the winning fsido in politics than the
editor of the "Sun" has. Seymour
and Greeley and Tilden, advocated by
the "Sun" when it was a political
paper, befere its eye teeth were cut,
were all defeated, ruthlessly slaughter
ed, to make a Republican holiday.
This year this paper, with its usual ill
luck, guessed wrong again, and advo
catcd Belva Locksood'a election, be
lieving that the peoplu who had become
tired of male President would rally
around Belva as one man. Thry did
just about rally as one man, and we
are the man. Our candidate has fol
lowed former candidates up the waters
of Salt river, and while iTus is being
written she is doubtless hitting in a
skiff up that awful river, looking for a
landing for her frail bark, and swenr
ing at the voters who went back on
her. It is aaful to think of, this de
feat, as she had set her heart rn warm
ing the Presidential chair, and her
constituent is sad also. Difeat is a
thing all candidates look upon as posi
Bible, but a woman cannot stand it as
well as a man. Seymour, when de
feated, went to liis home in TJtica and
contiuutd his elite e makiur, but Belva
cannot make cheese. Sho does not
know the combination, and if she at
tempted to make cheese she would cut
it bias, and trim it with the same, and
put hooks and eyes ou the rind, which
would never do in a free country.
Greeley was defeated and he went off
to his farm and died of a broken heart,
but Brlva can't de ;hat. It would
not be any consolation to her to die.
Tilden, when defeated, went to his
home and kept his mouth shut. Belva
could not do that, as she is a womau.
.Neither could she lead the life- of a
bachelor, as Tilden haw, because she is
married. The only thing for the de
feated candidate to do is to go home
and make it warm for Mr. Leckwood.
What has he been doing all the time
Belva has been running for President?
Ho has been attempting to keep hous,
and it is safe to say he has made a
mess of it, as all men do uniler such
circumstances. She will find on her
return home that Lockwood has neg
lected to py the egg woman until
she has quit bringing eggs just as eggs
are becoming scarcr. Belva can lec
ture him ou the sin of procrastination.
He has probably forgotten to niaUe
engagements with the dressmakers to
come and fit Belva's inaugural dress,
and there are a thousand things he has
forgotten or neglected, if he is a man,
as there is reason to believe he is. If
Belva cannot get the campaign off her
mind and forget defeat while taking
her husband across'htr kneeGgurativc
tpeaking, she nan get an engagement
at a dinio museum, as the first and
only female defeated candidate, fur the
Presidency, and while traveling about
the country on exhibition she can be
electioneering for the campaign four
ybars hence. Belva, whatever you do
don't lose your grip. Don't cry over
the spilled milk of a po'itical cam
paign, but brace up, hook up your
const another hole, set your teeth
firmly and go in to win, and the "Sun"
will stand by you to the last.rconscious
that if you live long enough you will
be ruler over a nation, or know the rea
son why. Belva, don't have hysteric,
whatever you do, as that is something
your constituent will not have going
on around him, not if he knows it.
