The eagerness displayed by the
Democrats to deprecate the mention
of Southern outrages, or in other
words, "the waving of the bloody
shirt," is calculated to give the un
wary the impression that the ensan
guined arti3le of apparel in question
is the exclusive property of Repub
licans, to be worn and waved north
of Mason and Dixon 's line. Further
than a mere general denunciation of
the allegations of Southern outrages
as "lies for campaign purposes,"
nothing has ever been done to con
vey to the public mind the impres
sion that the charges were false, and
where proofs should be introduced,
the fact that none have been brought
forward is prima facie evidence of
But a private circular is now being
handed around among prominent and
discreet Democrats of tho South,
which discloses the fact that bloody
shirtism is by no means the exclu
sive heritage of the Republicans, but
tbat the opposition has at last secured
a tight grip on the tail of the garment
aforesaid, and is swinging it at a rate
and with a ferocity which would
completely outdo the best efforts of
Morton, Logan, of any body else.
The difference, however, between
the symbol when waved on the Re
publican side and when nourished
over the Democratic ranks is very
significant. With us it is pointed to
as a sad memento to warn all con
cerned that the deeds of atrocity it
commemorates should never be re
eated; when borne before the Dem
ocratic hosts it is the oriflamme of
war, the banner encouraging further
deeds of the same kind. Tho circu
lar in question begins with a recapit
ulation of the States Tilden is expect
ed to carry, and Republicans will be
surprised to find among tho number
North Carolina, South Carolina,
Florida and Louisiana States that
may as confidently be reckoned on
for Hayes as Illinois, Vermont 'or
Maine. On our own coast, tho cir
cular states that California, Nevada,
and Oregon will go for Tilden, while
in tho East, Connecticut, New Jersey
and New York are counted on to
make up the number of electoral
votes to 200. To get a majority is so
easy a task that tho wonder is, not
that the circular claimed only 200
electoral votes for Tilden, but that
it admitted that there was any oppo
sition to his election. It would have
been quite as easy to have set down
SCO votes for Tilden as 200, and the
claim would have been fully as just
a that really made.
But the point of the document is
not in its claims, but in the hints
and innuendoes it gives as to con
ducting tho canvass. Notwithstand
ing the fact that so overwhelming a
majority is for liklen, the circular
urges the utmost caution upon the
Southern Democrats. "It will be
wise to carry every Southern State at
all hazards," but "there must be no
loose talk before hand." "The Ad
ministration ha3 not proofs enough
to enforce its threats," and "all that
is necessary to a Democratic victory
is for .jthe Sonth to organize, and to
keep the carpetbaggers from intimi
dating the negroes on election day."
"The stake to bo played for on Tues
day, November 7th, is the posses
sion of tho Government, and it can
bo won." "Give us a solid Southern
vote (hence that much quoted ex
pression of a "solid South") at all
hazards and all will be right; without
that vote, the prospect is gloomy and
success more than doubtful."
It is not difficult to read between
the times of all declarations as these.
The cause of Democracy in the North
is so desperate that nothing can save
it but a solid South in its favor, and
even with this re-euforcement, suc
cess is so doubtful that in order to
insure it resort must bo had to everv
weans possible. The bloody shirt,
therefore, must bo waved, not to in
timidate the dominant and aggressive
party in the South, but to terrify
still more tho timid blacks. The
idea of a semi-military organization
of the Southern Democracy, as in
ooutn tjaroiina, ueing necessary in
order to "prevent carpetbaggers from
intimidating the negroes, is so ut
terly absurd as to deserve not the
slightest notice, lhe real purpose
of the Democrats is to carry the
South by fair or foul means, it mat
ters little which; anc. to this end all
these circulars, proclamations and
organizations are directed, and even
tho bloody shirt is pressed into ser-
vice as tho red nag of the Democracy.
In our last issue we urged as
strenuously as lay in our feeble
power the building of i bridge over
the Willamette at this place, and the
erection of a new Court House, but
as yet no plans for the consummation
of these enterprises have been drawn,
everything thus far ending in what
is vulgarly called "jaw-bone." All
those whom we have thus far on-
snlted with are strongly in favor "6iM
the movements referred to, and we
see no reason why some of our pub
lic spirited citizens cannot take the
matter in hand and bring them to
Tote for Hayes, Wheeler and Dick
Williams on Tuesday,
North and South.
The election in Colorado is ex
plained and emphasized by the elec
tion in Georgia. The present cam
paign is as thoroughly a contest be
tween the North and the South as
the campaign in 18G0, and the ques
tion is whether the administration of
the country shall be marked by
Northern ideas,Northern sentiments,
and Northern practices prevalent in
the State lately in rebellion. That
sums up the issue; it is a struggle
with the ex-Confederates to obtain
possession of the government. Geor
gia lends them a hand, Colorado
casts its first three votes against
them, and the -line is drawn. It
would not surprise us to see intimi
dation and violence resnlt in carry
ing every rebel State for the Con
federate ticket, while every loyal
State casts its vote for the only par
ty under which it can be said that
the country is safe.
Tildcu and Finance.
This is the spirit manifested by
Democrats and Republican capital
ists in regard to the election of Til

of our nation at heart cannot fail to
see it in the same light:
New York, Oct. 30. Eighteen
bank presidents and leading mer
chants of this city, and capitalists,
headed by John Jacob Astor includ
ing well known Democrats have ad
dressed the Hon. Wm. M. Evarts
asking his views on present political
issues. Evarts consents to speak on
"Wednesday at Cooper Institute. The
signers of the address declare that
tho Democratic party is inimical to
the public credit and dangerous to
the public peace. They are against
Tilden on the financial issue. Their
assigned reasons are that the Demo
cratic party is indentified with the
rebellion and the principles which
give it Jiie and its advent to power
would be the precursor of Southern
claims for compensation to an extent
that would jeopardize the solvency
of the national tieasury and entail
upon tax-payers burdens that could
not be borne. The radical change
in tho policy of the government
which the election of Tilden would
imply, would in their judgement im
pair the credit of the government at
home and abroad, postpone indefinit
ly resumption of specie payments,
and endanger in future our peace
and prosperity. This paper makes

An Answer to August Belmont.
New York, Oct. 30. The
following is published to-day.
To the People of the United States:
The undersigned, merchants, bank
ers and business men of New York,
respectfully submit the following
statements for the information of all
parties interested therein: In 18C5,
August 31st, the national debt reach
ed its maximum amount, S2,75G,431,
501; reduced June 30, 187G, to S2,
009,439,344, a reduction -during this
period of eleven years, since the war,
of SG56,992,24G. The annual interest
chargeable for the fiscal vear ending
June 30, 18(3G was 133,067,741; for
the past year ending June 30, 1876,
S100,243,271, a reduction in the
amount of interest charged since
1866 of 332,82-1,470. Ths annual ex
penditures of lhe government in
1876, as compared with 1866, show a
redaction of 262,149,619. and, in
federal taxation more than 6300,000,
000. Other great results of this
financial policy have been that, de
spite the indebtedness of more than
two thousand millions, and while
diminishing taxation, the credit of
the country has been raised to an
unprecedented point that its 4 per
cent bonds, issued in redemption of
six per cents, have been selling rap
idly at home and abroad above par
in gold, and the government has been
enabled since 1866, not only to keep
within its income, but to apply an
average annual sum of 567,422,242
toward the payment of its indebted
ness. A careful consideration of
these results of judicious manage
ment of the national treasury dur
ing the Republican administration
of the Government induces the un
dersigned to express their confident
belief that the continuation of the
same generous policy which has so
well sustained our commercial honor
and aided powerfully in the preser
vation of the Uuion itself, would be
brought about by the election of
Gen. Rutherford B. Hayes and Wm.
A. Wheeler to tho offices of Presi

In a speech at Akron, Ohio, Oct.
6th, referring to the charge of Know
Nothiugism brought by the Demo
cratic press against Governor Hayes,
Carl Schurz says: "This is an utter
ly reckless charge. I converged with
Governor Hayes about the reports
concerning this matter when I saw
him about three weeks ago. The
whole thing is based upon nothing
but a careless rouitne answer by
Governor Hayes' secretary to a com
plimentary letter. I think I have
answered similar letters in a similar
way dozens of times in my life. To
charge Governor Hayes with Know
Nothing sentiments is the greatest
absurdity that can be imagined.
Everybody knowing him will confirm
what I say. As a foreign-born citi
zen who loves his rights as dearly as
anybody, I do not hesitate to declare,
if there is any man in this country
in whose hands I would consider my
rights safe as in my own, that man is

The gentleman said to me: The
purpose of the South is to get pos

This done, they will have the power

the North refuses to pay it will be
rebellious, and the South, having

to compel the Northern rebels into
subjection. We intend to have pay

Chicago. Oct. 27. The Tribune's
Washington special says the corres
pondence given below presumptively
proves the charges against Tilden,
unless he can give indubitable proof
of their falsity. The vindication
which it is alleged ho can make of
himself lies in the hands
his friends, and they refuse
furnish it. but mereiv say there
no legal power that can compel them.
Evidence in the hands of U. S. Dis
trict Attorney Bliss, seems already
to establish prettv clearly that the
Pittsburg and Fort Wayne R. R. Co.
about 1869, paid Tilden $50,000 for
services this being the year that he
returned only 317,000 income. The
evidence shows that this payment
and Tilden's receipt is among the pa
pers of that company; that books
containing this information have
been transferred to an officer of the
company who is a special friend of
Tilden, who refuses access to them.
This refusal coming from the board
of directors,- of which Tilden is a
member, has special significance.
On the 25th of Oct. District Attor
ney Bliss, writing from New York
to Hon. Green B. Raum, commission
er of Internal Revenue, set forth
the following facts: That in course
of preparation he bad been making
to carry o it Rswim's instructions to
commence action against Tilden to
recover the unpaid income tax he
learned from creditable sources that
about the year '69 ' Tilden received
from the Pittsburg and Fort Wayne
Railroad company $50,000 and that
entry of that payment appeared up
on the books of the company and
was substantiated by Tilden's vouch
er, which was among the papers of
the Co. As Tilden in '69 paid tax
only on $17,000 he thought it nssen
tial and correct to verify the infor
mation and therefore requested a
revenue agent to procure access to
books of the company in Pittsburg,
never for a moment doubting that
the officers would gladly assist the
government. On arriving, however
the agent learned that since the pub
lication of allegations concerning
Tilden's fraud, the books and papers
of the company had been directly
transferred to the control of an of
ficer who is a political friend of Til
den, and that gentleman peremptor
ily refused access to the books, re
ferring the agent to S. II. Meyer,
President of the company. On Octd
ber 5th the district attorney wrote
Meyer requesting him to give in
structions allowing an examination
of the books. In reply he promptly
stated he had referred the matter to
the directors whom he would sum
mon to meet on the 12th or 19th.
Meyer wrote, asking under what au
thority of law the right was claimed,
and Bliss replied that -vhile there
ua3 sufficient legal authority to com
pel their production, that he intend
ed only to place the matter on th
footing of a request to the officers to
aid the government in its efibrts to
lecover taxes by giving information
as to matters which could not pre
judice them, nor indeed any one ex
cept the person, if any, who had re
fused payment of his just dues.
The directors did not reply until
district attorney Bliss had renewed
the request on the 23d, when Meyer
sent a note declining to give the in
formation, placing himself and the
company on their legal rights. He
disclaimed any disrespect to the gov
ernment or to the district attorney.
Tho district attorney continues
"It i, of course, clear that
at the proper time the government
can and will compel the production
of the desired information, and re
fusal is only of importance because
it comes from a board of directors of
whom Tilden is one; and the mere
fact of refusal, it seems to me, con
firms the truth of the information I
had received. It can hardly ba le
lieved that if the books and vouchers
did not contain the statements there
would have been any hesitation in
allowing access to them immediate
ly." He further adds, "if for the
same year, 1869, Tilden rendered
services for which he charged and
received 816,000 from tho Union
Pacific railroad company for services
in 1869, '68 and 70, which were paid
to and receipted bv Tilden. There
is besides $2,000 paid March 25, 1S6S,
by the same company which is re
ceipted for on account of profession
al services, the receipt being sign
ed "S. J. Tilden, per James P. Sin
nott;" but I presume there is no
doubt ot hmnott s authority to
for Tilden's account to the U. P
R. shows he at the time covered
these charges rendered considerable
services to the somewhat notorious
Credit Mobilier, with reference to
fhe bills in equity prepared in its be
half, drawing a contract between the
Credit Mobilier and Oakes Ames and
others, consulting as to the mit of
McCanb against the Credit Mobilier.
which suit led to the disclosure of
the operations of that concern, all of
which services may have been cover
ed by the charge against the U. P.
R. R. Co., though I have informa
tion which leads me to the opinion
that Tilden also received considera
ble sums of money from the Cred t
Mobilier. I have gathered a good
deal of information as to charges for
services made by Tilden and pay
ments made to him for services to
other corporations and persons dur
ing the period covered by the in
come tax. They all go to show that
he escaped taxation on very large
amounts of income. I am still pur
suing my examination, for though
there is abundant ground for the
immediate commencement oi an ac
tion, it seems to me that there are
reasons why delay is advisable, es
pecially as briefly, delay now will
not postpone the final trial of tho
cause, while it gives opportunity for
more careful and accurate prepara
tions. Your obedient servant.
Geo. Bliss, U. S. Attornev."
New York, Oct, 58. The Tribune
editorially reasserts that tho income
tax frauds charged against Tilden re
main utterly unexplained; that he
was a poor man in 1872 and worth
S3.000.000 in 1872. and in the mean
time had paid taxes on an average
income of less than $15,000.
The Times this morning puplishes
a letter from Abram S. Hewitt deny
ing certain statements about Tilden's
money affairs. Hewitt says the New
York iron mine was a continuous
source of expense and not of revenue
up to 1862, and that it then only be
came profitable on account of a great
rise in the price of iron. The Times
says it is prepared to prove that the-t
statement is not true.

From year to year we have been

us. With our prayers for the con
tinuance thereof, we have at this

His continued protection and for the
many material blessing which His
bounty has bestowed. In addition
to the favors accorded to us as indi

express our hearty thanks to Al
mighty God that, by Hia providence
and guidance, our government, es

enabled to fulfill the purposes of its
establishment, offering an asylum to
the people of every raco, securing
civil and religious liberty to all with
in its borders, meting out to every
individual justice and equality before

our duty to offer our humble praises
to the Father of all mercies for the
continuance of His divine favor as a
nation and as individuals. By reason
of all these considerations, I, Ulysses
Grant, President of the United States,
do recommend to the people of the
United States to devote the 30th day

of their thanks and prayer to the
Almighty God, and laying aside their
