Tlio following In a took untitled "Men
and MeuHUrcBof Half 11 Century." Tho
cxtructa ((uoted Imvo roforunco to Mr.
Clovoliunl, and Incidentally Mr. Thur
muii. Tho book waa not written by a
Democratic campaign biographer, but by
Mr. Hugh MuCiillough, who was Secre
tary of the Treauury under Lincoln,
Johnson and Arthur.
Horo 1h what Mr. McCullough Bays in
IiIh Iwok (pi.go-.D0;:
"It in only lust to nay of President
Cleveland that in tho pelf-commund, the
Indeiionilpuco and tho executive ability
which liu hart displayed, ho has decoded
tho (!XMctutlou of his tKilItlcat friends
an disappointed Ids political enemies.
Until ho waH nominated for (luvornor of
Now Yotk In IBS-', ho was little known
uvon to the eoplo of his own Stuto; out
nido of It he wkh Hcarcely known by any
body, ills uwiimlntunco with public
inun was mum limited than Mr. Arthur's;
Ids eilueutlonal advuntascs woro not of a
liberal character, and yet It must bo ad
mitted by Ills opponent) that ho has filled
tho ollko with dignity that ho Ima per
formed his high duties with intolllgenco,
that ho has been stralglit forward In his
actions, uud that no has not Bought xpu
larity by Hwlmmlng with the current.
Knw mini In his nonition would have ve
toed, us ho did, ihmihIoii blllu which must,
liavo Ikjcii liaMtil) passod or panned fori
party purposes. Ho know that ho (
aiiotiM 111.1I.0 no friends, und would
probably niako many enemies, by his I
vutoei. of many of tlinui, but upon careful
nxiiinliutlon, ho diurovori-d that thoy
woro ii'it meritorious, ami no luoiuiuie,
withhold fioui thorn his nlt.mt.uiu. Uo
may d."l und ilmilitliwri docs dolio u
renoiiilnatlou (Mr. Hayes was tho only
rresldi'til who was content with a single
term;, but I have boon utiahlo tosco any
Indication of it Iti Ids olllci.tl acts nr tin

with being a dumugoguo. By thu Ho
publicuns ho Is charged with not being
governed by tho Civil Service Act; with
making lomovals and apKIntmouts con
trary to its letter and spirit. On tho
other hand ho is sovoiely criticised by
many DomocratH for not making agencral
sweep. Ho has undoubtedly mado mis
takes in thu oxoiclse. of hla appointing
mid removing power, but tho woudur
should bo (all things considered) that ho
has not mado more. To disregard on
tlroly tho claims of party In tho distribu
tion of patronage, demands an iudo
poiidouco of patty foully, and a disregard
of party obligations, which no I'rcsiiiuiit
has uror foil, or ought to fool. How far to
go In yielding to tho claims of his luuty,
without disregarding tho higher claims of
tho natlou.ls an exceedingly dllicruutUci

Cleveland, under tho prcHsuru to which
ho has been subjected, lias yielded more
