In my letter of June 18, 1880, ad
&d to the delegates front the
State of New York to the Democrat
ic national convention, I said : "Hav

the repose of private life. In renoun
cing the reiiomination for the Presi
dency, I do so with no doubt in my
Biud as to the vote of the State of
'ew York or of the United State3,
but because 1 believe that it is a re
Duuciation of an election to the Presi
dency. To those wlj think my re
nominal ion and re-election indispen
gable to an effectual vindication of
the right of the people to elect their
rulers, violated iu my person, I have
accorded as-long a reserve of my de
cision as is possible, but I cannot
overcome my repugnance to enter
into a new engagement which involv
es four years of ceaseless toil. The
dignity of the Presidential office is
above personal ambition, but it cre
ates in me no illusion. Its value is
as a great power for good to the coun
try, I said four years ago in accepting
the nomination. Knowing as I -do,
therefore, from fresh experience, how
great the difference is between glid
ing through an oflicial routine and
working out a, reform of systems a-nd
policies, it is impossible for me to
contemplate what needs to be done
in theFederal administration without
an anxious sense of the difficulties of
If summoned by the suffrages of my
countrymen to attempt this work, 1
shall endeavor, with God's help, to
be the efficient instrument of their
will. Such a work of renovation af
ter many years of misrule, such re
form of systems and policies to which
I would cheerfully have sacrificed all
that remained to me, of health, and
life is now, I fear, beyond my strength.
My purpose to withdraw from further
public service, and the grounds of it
friends to relinquish that purpose, I
reiterated my determination uncondi
tionally. In the four years which have since
elapsed, nothing has occurred to
weaken, but everything to strengthen
the considerations which induced my
withdrawal from public life. To all
who have addressed me on the sub
ject, my intention has been frankly
communicated. Several of my most
confidential friends, under sauction of
'.heir own names, have publicly stated
my determination to be irrevocable.
That I have occasion now to consider
the question I share no responsibility.
The appeal made to me by the Dem
ocratic masses with apparent unanim
ity to serve them once more, is enti
tled to the most deferential considera
tion, and would inspire a disposition
to anything desired of me. If it were
consistent with my judgment of duty.
I believe that there is no instrumen
tality in human society so potential
in its influence upon mankind for
good or evil as governmental machin
ery. For the administering of jus
tice aud for the making and execu
ting i he laws not all the elemosynary
institutions or private benevolence to
which the philanthropist may devote
their lives are so fruitful iu benefits
as the reserve and preservation of
this machinery from perversion that
make it the instrument of conspiracy,
fraud and crime against the most
sacred rights and interests of the
For fifty years as a private citizen,
never contemplating an official career,
I have devoted at least as much
thought and effort to the duty of in
fluencing a right action of the govern
mental institution of my country as
to ail oflier objects, I have never ac
cepted official service except for a
brief period, for a special purpose,
and only when the occasion seemed to
require from me that sacrifice of
private preferences to the public wel
I undertook the State admiuistra
lion of New York because it was sup
posed that in that way only could the
executive power be arrayed on the
side of reforms to which, as a private
citizen. I had given three years of
my life. I accepted the nomination
for the Presidency iu 1876 because
of the general conviction that my
candidacy would best present the is
sue of reform, which the Democratic
majority of the people desired to have
worked out in the Federal govern
ment as it had been in that of the
State of New York. I believed that
I had strength enough then to reno-

In reply to the address of the com
mittee communicating my nomina
tion, I depicted the difficulty of the
undertaking, and likeued my feel
ings in engaging to those of a sol
dier entering battle ; but I did not
withhold the entire consecration of
my powers to the public service.
Twenty years of continuous malad
ministration under the demoralizing
influences of the intestine war and of
bad finances have infected the whole
government system of the United
States with cancerous growths, false
constructions and corrupt practices.
Powerful classes have acquired pecu
niary interests in official abuses, and
the moral standards of the people
have been impaired. To redress these
evils is a work of great difficulties
and labor, and cannot be accomplish
ed without the most energetic and
efficient and personal action on the
part of the Chief Executive of the
The canvass and administration
which it is desired that I should un
dertake would embrace a period of
nearly five years, nor can I admit
any illusion to their burdens. Three

James G. Blaine is a menace of evil
to the republic. Of all the citizens
that were proposed to the assembly of
partisan electors Monday, and of all
whose names have been mentioned in
connection with that office, Mr. Blaine
is the least fit, the least trustworthy.
He is, pcrhajis, the most intense par
tisan in America. Moreover his par
ty ism is not the party ism of a states
man who is guided by sincere convic
tions founded on broad knowledge
and understanding. It is the party
ism of a mere passion for leadership
actuating a man of intense prejudi
ces, of ugly temper, and of defective
understanding, whose highest happi
ness is in playing the ring-leader in a
Boston Herald, (Ind.)
It is perhaps well, as we suggested
a few days ago, when the nomination
of Mr. Blaine began to seem inevita
ble, that the party should ask the
judgment of the people under the
leadership of a candidate who embo
dies more completely than any other
man the real spirit of Republicanism.
Believing that Blaine would be a bad
and dangerous President, we hope to
see him defeated. Believing him to
be a weak candidate, we expect to see
him defeated. His zealots say he can
be elected without the Stale of New
York. They will have a chance to
prove it. Perhaps they think he can
be elected without the help of Massa
chusetts. It is nt improbable that
of the City of New York, aud two they may have a chance to test this
years of experience-in renovating the ! also. If the Democrats rise to the
administration of the State of New
York, have made me familiar with
the requirements of such a work at
the present time.
The considerations which induced
my action in 1880 nave become im
perative. I ought not to assume a
task which I have not the physical
strength to carry through, to reform
the administration of the Federal
government, to realize my one ideal
the people would indeed warrant as
they could alone compensate sacrifi
ces which tile undertaking would in
vole, but in my condition of advan
cing years and declining strength, I
feel no assurance of my ability to ac
complish these objects. I am, there-
occasion, nominate Governor Cleve
land aud give him an honest sup
port in his own State, we believe they
will carry the election.

The sheriff telegraphed the gover
nor that he feared a riot. That morn
ing a man came in and said the burn
ers were assembling mounted and
armed, and intending to come to
town. The sheriff jumped on his
horse, armed with a Henry rtfle and
revolver. Before he got out of toWn
he hallooed to six men to arm and
follow him and meet him at a certain
place. He could have had a hun
dred men if he had said so. Meeting
at the place he said : "I'm going to
make a speech to that crowd, and
they must and shall listen to me. Tie
your horses boys, our Heurys are
good for sixteen shots each, and our
Colts for six each. Now don't shoot
until I say the word, and not unless
they defy me." Then on those seven
men went on foot, about a quarter of
a mile, and came to the strikers, ful
ly 1,200 men mounted and armed,
but sober, though like their race they
became very excited on seeing seven
armed men coming toward them.
The leader rode down on them fol
lowed by the whole gang. The sher
iff said : "You know I'm the sheriff.
You are an unlawful crowd. You
must disperse." "To perdition with
you and the law," and all that vast
crowd were riding round that little
band of seven men, with fearful oaths
in their own language. "Boys," said
the sheriff, "look sharp !" Furious
ly the leader cursed and defied them.
At the word "fire" the sheriff killed
the leader, and seven bodies rolled
from their saddles and the quick re
peating rifles killed twenty of them
before their horses could take them
out of range. Had the seven kept
their horses so they could have pur
sued them, many more would have
been killed. They didn't think the
sheriff meant anything more than
talk. Had they got into town and
whiskied, there would have been an
and so many mounted men were sn
by the Italians urging their horses
toward Eureka, they fled further into
the mountains, thinkiug the whites
were rallying to again slaughter
That determined sheriff iu a few
days went out to their haunts and
told them they could return to their
business and wouldn't be molested.
"But if you break the laws you'll
suffer worse next time."
One said: "Pini Garlici's horse
threw him, poor fellow ! and one of
your men shot him." The sheriff
told them they could go to town and
get the bodies. A few went in, but
they felt safest when the sheriff was
in sight. Many left the county, and
there has never been any more coal-
Jbnrners attempting to defy the law.
Our Vice Presidents.
In discussing the question of Presi
dential nomination, the Philadelphia
Bulletin suggests that as four out of
the twenty-one individuals who have
been occupants of the White House
were Vice-Presidents, it is obviously
the duty of nominating conventions
to attach more importauce to the
proper filling of the Vice-Presidential
office than they have generally
done in recent years. Tyler served
three years and eleven months of
Harrison's term. Fil Imore two years
and eight months of Taylor's term.
Johuson three years and ten months
of Lincoln's second term, and Arthur
when next March he completes his
present period of office, will have
served three years and six months of
the terra for which Garfield was elect
ed. As about twenty per cent., there
fore, of our Presidents during the
past ninety-five years were elpcted as
Vice-Presidents, it is plainly incum
bent on every nominating convention,
following the intent of the constitu
tion, to nominate to the second place
on the national ticket as will, in case
of need, be a suitable substitute for
the President, and not put in so re
sponsible a place some wooden-headed
individual whose selection is cal
culated solely with reference to the
supposed "claims" of a certain section
or faction. Of the four Vice-Presi-
deuts who have been called on to
service as President, the last two are
not universally regarded as well fitted
for the place. Still les, in popular
estimation, were such men of negative
ability as Wheeler and Hamlin qual
ified for the place they might have
been required to fill. In the early
days of the republic abler men were
chosen to preside jn the Seuate, and
be at hand to sustain, if occasion
should demand, the duties of the
Presidential office. Adams, for ex
ample, served twice with Washing
ton, Jefferson with Adams, Aaron
Burr and George Clinton with Jeffer
son, the latter again with Madison,
lompkins with Monroe, and Van Bu
ren with Jackson. Even the great Oil
houn served twice in the Vice-Presi
deutial office. There has been du
ring the last two decades of our his
tory a trifle too much, perhaps, of

The New York Baptist Weekly
for the present week says : "The
Baptist Weekly has a special sphere
Its aim is to give all who read its
pages religious news and to discuss
such topics as are adapted to enlarge
the range of Christian intelligence
and develop and direct the Christian
activities of the churches. Moral
questions as affecting political move
ments also come within the legiti
mate province of religious journalism.
On this ground we have not hesitated
to speak on party issues which clear
ly involved principles . of morality,
believing that there is an obvious re
lation between politics and piety.
Holding firmly to this view, we rec
ognize a moral obligation to express
an emphatic dissent from many of the
sentiments embodied in the platform
of the Republican convention at Chi
cago, and the means adopted to effect
the nomination of the national can
didates. But waiving, for the pres
ent, the discussion of these questions,
the public record of the Hon. James
G. Blaine is such as does not com
mend him to our judgment as a fit
man to hold the highest place in the
gift of our republic. Caesar's wife
should be above suspicion, and a man
who aspires to the presidential chair
should be above the charges which
dishonor the official life of Mr. Blaine.
