These are facts which the people are
not likely to forget. They touch! the
very marrow of the question at issue
this year. It is no answer to these
striking facta for the Democratic jour
nals to say that General Hancock was
"a superb soldier." The question i is
whether, the Democratic party, with its
bad record, or the Republican party,
with its good record, shall be given
control oi tne government.

THE CANDIDATES CONTRASTED.
A London Journal's Reasons for
Tlilnklnff Hancock Will be Ba en.
Without endoralng every shade of
expression in the following very ible
article- on the Presidential situation
taken from the London1 Spectator, we
publish it as showing almost remark
able insight into our affairs from one
of the English liberals of the Glads lone
and John Bright type, j Ed. Post
In an article upon the result of the
Cincinnati Convention the- Lot don
Spectator says: "As Mr. Tilden was
too old and Senator Bayard too com
pletely a southerner, and no' western
man of undoubted popularity was fdrth
coming, Gen. Hancock was probably
as wise a choice as could be made.
Nevertheless, we think he will be beiten.
The deep distrust of the Democrats
which the events of the civil war in
spired in the Union men has not yet
died away; there is a great reluctance
to intrust them with the Presidency,
and recent elections show4 that, the Re
publicans, when united, still have a
majority. Their adversaries, moreover,
though they have at last insert i "hard
money" amoDg the planks of their
platform, are regarded with suspicion
by capitalists and by bondholders, now
an immense class, scattered all throutrh
the Union. The advocates of plaDer
money, who some years siuco so shook
the fidelity of western Republicans!, are
declining in strength i under the pros
perity produced by recent harvests,
they have lost ground with practical
men by accepting leniale suffrage, and
their alliance with Dennis Kearney
and the "Party of Labor" frightens all
the freeholders and the majority ojf de
cent people. As between the parties,
the Republicans should wn,, anil as
between the ineu, all tno elements of
popularity are with Gen. Garfield. fills
nomination was received with enthu
siasm by his own party, and delights
almost all Americaus not hostile to "his
political principles, lie embodies their
idea of a career. The average small
freeholder who, iu the last lesort, rules
the Union, sees something dramatic iu
the election of a man who was once ia
day laborer' to tho Presidency of the
Republic, something which realizes his
boast that in the United States all
careers are so free that any American
lad may hope one day to lind himself
in the .White House He is himself
exalted in such a man's election, and
this none ihe less because Gen. Garfield
is. now a man of culture and experience
in politics. That feeliDgndt altogether
without warrant, if equality of chances
in life is a true Republican idea, greatly
helped the election of the 'rail-splitter,'
Abraham Lincoln; and the result of
that choice the most successful ever
maae by the Union will help to smooth
the path of Gen. Garfield, whose char
acter, again, attracts the higher class
to which he now belongs. Gen. Han
cock, on the other hand, though in his
way - celebrated.' is not the kind of man
to arouse enthusiasm among voters who
at heart believe that the West Point
training, though not acknowledged ! to
those subjected to it 'aristocrats nnt f
sympathy with the body ot the people. .
There is nothing dramatic about Gen.
Hancock's career, nothing to awaken
sympathy in the west, where actual
power lies, and where the quiet, regular
officer is regarded with a disfavor which
