"Public. Office, a Public Trust:'
Mr. Blaine it would seem, bit off
more than he could chew in his In
dianapolis libel suit whichjwas, Blaine
like, inaugurated with such';a flourish
oftrumpsts. He found the Sentinel
prepared for the contest and eager
for the fray. The Sentinels attorney
prepared a list of questions to put to
Mr. Blaine, and asked the Court that
he be subpoenaed to appear in per
son as a witness. This was a'turn in
the tide of affairs the Maine states
man had not counted upon, and it
seems it alarmed him. He now writes
a letter for public inspection claiming
to have, in ignorance of the law of
Kentucky, contracted a secret mar
riage in that State with his present
wife in 1850, afterwards remarry
ing her at Pittsburg, Pa., in March,
1851. In June, of the same year,
Stanwood Blaine was born. It is incon
ceivablo that a .Professor of a Col
lego could have been ignorant of ,the
law of the State wherein he was em
ployed on so simple a matter as mat
rimony, and so, of course, no one will
give any credit to Mr. B.'s statement
in this behalf. The fact is, he seduced
Miss Stanwood and then fled to
Pennsylvania where he was followed
by his victim and somehow, induced
to marry her, just three months prior
to the birth of her babe. Mr. Blaine's
whole showing points to exactly this
conclusion; and then, soon after the
Cleveland scandal was put afloat, Mr.
Blaino became apprehensive that his
own licentious record would be
dragged before the public, and, in
order to destroy the monumental evi
dence that the first born saw the
light of day just three months subse
quent to his marriage, chipped off
the figuro "1" on the little departed's
tombstone, leaving the date to stand
"185-" as indicating the date of its
Though the public should have
naught to do with the affair, and
though such attacks upon the past
life of a public man are not only inex
cusable, but to the last degree repre
hensible, this expose of Mr. Blaine
was provoked, and made tolerable as
a measure of retaliation for the .in
excusable attaks upon the past life of
Mr. Cleveland. It has generally been
thought that Mr. Blaine could have
caused the suppression of the Cleve
land scandal so-called, and living in
a glass house as he was, it certainly
behooved him to do so. If he could
not, he has great reason now, to ex
claim, "Deliver me from my friends P'
Another evidence, which is a matter
of record, that Mr. Blaine is guilty
as charged, is, the fact that over
twenty years ago, when the facts
could be proved by a cloud of living
witnesses, he instituted libel proceed-
ings against the editor of the Port
land, (Me.), Argus, and did not dare
let tne matter come to trial, and so
had the case dismissed at his own ex
pense; it was then a game of bluff, a3
the similar prosecution against the
Indianapolis paper is now. And,
since Mr. Blaine has confessed his
case away over his own signature, the
sooner he has a nolle entered in this
last suit, the better for him, weshould
Some of the Blaine organs still
harp upon the fact that at the Na
tional Democratic Convention at Chi
cago, the popular air "Dixie" was
played by the band in attendance the
first evening, and a Blaine sheet out
in the Valley caps the climax by ex
plaining all about the "Dixie" song.
It says the song was -composed and
"set to music" in Georgia during the
fore part of the war by a Catholic
priest named Ryan, and sung with
much enthusiasm by the ladies to in
spire the young men to go forth to
do or die, for the "cause!" In the
first place, the poet Father Ryan did
not live in Georgia; and, secondly, if
he had ho could not have been guilty
of the stupidity of "composing" such
a song for such a place. The' word
ing and whole tenor of the piece in
dicate' that it was a Northern produc
tion, and intended to bo sung at the
North. For instance
"Away down South in Dixie,"
"I wish I was in Dixie," etc.
would suggest that the chief market
for the piece was intended to bo at
the North. As a matter of fact,
"Dixie" was composod in New York,
in 1S59, by Dan Emmet, and per
formed by Bryant's minstrels as a
"walk around." With some additions
and adaptations, the song did became
popular at the South during the war;
but to charge its paternity upon the
learned Father Ryan is absurd to the
last degree. .
But this "Dixie" business in con
nection with the Chicago Convention
is harmless by the side of the story
invented by the Blaine crowd to the
effect that said Convention upon clos
ing required "God save the Queen',
played. This latter invention was in
tended to "fire the Irislj heart," as
Republican papers generally, and
especially our neighbor the Mail, did
very much jubilate when Bowen with
drew the sanction of the New York
Independent from the candidacy of
Mr. Cleveland. Let us in very, char
ity ring down the curtain here, nor
remind them that the said Bowen
flies the Blaino track, urging that,
from Mr. Blaine's own showing, ho
must be a liar in addition to having
been a lecherous trifler with the af
fections of a young girl in Kentucky;
for Bowen declines to swallow the
"secret marriage" theory put forth by
Blaine. It is even so severe as to ac
cuse the tattooed man with "pleading
the baby act" now that he is cornered.
It declines to believe that Blaine, be
ing a college professor, was gnorant
enough of the law of marriage in Ken
tucky as to supioso that he conld go
off into a corner and "many" in the
presence of "a few chosen friends."
The New York Independent, a very
jGodly journal, and always very Re-
publican withal, espoused Cleveland's
candidacy until the promulgation of
the Buffalo Ball scandal, when it
withdrew its endorsement of him.
and, like the sow returning to its wal
low, went back to Blaine. In due
time the Blaino scandal was ful
ruinated, but the Independent was in
credulous until Blaine published his
version of the affair, which so shocked
that pious paper that it renounces its
allegiance to, and washes its hands
oi, iur. J5iaine. it nas a cnance now
to cast its lines in pleasanter places.
Mrs. Belva Lockwood prances to the
front as a Woman Suffrage condidate,
Now let the renowned Mr. Bowen
join hands with her and circle to the
Mr. Blaine says ia his confession
that his "secret marriage" in Ken
tucky was entered into in the pres
ence of "a few chosen friends!" These
"chosen friends" must have been an
ignorant lot altogether, not to have
informed both parties that such
"marriage" would be illegal and
criminal in that State, and that the
issue thereof would be illegitimate.
But Sir. Blaine knew at the time, as
did his victim of his unholy lust and
everyone else, that no such marriage
could be contracted. The wholo
thing is a trumped up afterthought
to meet the present emergency.
Who can doubt-this conclusion?
