In the soft fading twilight
O. a weary, weary day,
With a quiet step I entered
Where the children were at play;
I wan brooding o'er some trouble
Which had met me unawares,
When a little voice came ringing:
"Me i creeping up the atair."
All, it touched the teuderest heart
Wi:h a breath and force divine;
And such melodies awakened,
As no wording can define.
And t turned to see our darling,
All forgetful of my cares,
W i if n I saw the little creature
Slowly climbing up the stairs.
Step by step she bravely clambered
On her little hands and knees,
Kee -big up h movant chattering,
Like a magpie in the trees,
Till at last she reached the topmost,
When o'er all her world's affairs,
She delighted stood a victor
After creeping up the stairs.
Faulting hevft, behold au image
Of man's brief and struggling life,
Whose best prizes must be captured
With a noble, earnest strife ;
Onward, upward, reaching ever,
Bending to the weight of cares,
Honing, fearing, still expecting,
We go creeping up the stairs.
On their steps may lie no carpet,
. By their side may be no rail;
Hands and knees may often pain us,
And the heart may almost fail,
Still above there is glory,
Which no sinfulness impairs,
With joy and rest forever,
After creeping up the stairs.
Thin-man on the Situation.
He Delivers a Conservative Opinion
, on Democratic Prospects.
Hon. Allen G. Thnrtnan, of Ohio,
1 1k.T "XT i l
arrived in iew loru. Aionuav. to
H11 un engagemenr to address a Dem
ocratic tnaiis meeting at the .Brook
lyn R uk last evening. "What do I
think of the result in Ohio?" lie said
Ho au interviewer. ''Just what every
body thinks. 1 lie result is a little
better than I anticipated, that is all.
The Democratic vote was the largest
ever polled in the State, and in view
ot the strenuous efforts made by Mr.
Blaine and his speakers it was a more
than creditable showing. In all my
political experience 1 have never
seen such close hand to hand fighting.
Jbvery inch ot giound was contested.
The result ot October elections is
usual I v to strengthen the winning;
party, and while many Republicans
voted their ticket in October who
will not vote for Blaine, still I do
not think the result will be material
ly changed in November."
"And how about Indiana?
"That is in my opinion another
close State. That the Democrats will
carry it I entertain no doubt, but it
will be at the expense ot hard earn
est work. Gov. Hendricks feels very
sanguine over the prospect. McDon
ald, chairman of the Democratic State
committee, feels equally sure of suc
cess. Hendricks declares that the
State is sate enough, and these men
are better able to judge than I. My
opinion is based on elections in other
years. Still, there will be some strong
righting in Indiana, and 1 go irom
here direct to Air. Hendricks State
to assist in the work. New York
seems safe enough, and so I go where
the chance ot doing good seems best.
"Then, in November, you ex
"A Democratic victory. It we ever
expect tu be successful, now is the
appointed time. All the signs point
The Blaine Programme.
New York Virtually Owen Up, and
Fiaht to be Made in hdiana and
A New York dispatch says : The
Blaine plan for the remainder of the
campaign has been fully developed
here during the past forty-eight
hours. Many leading Republicans
have been here in consultation.
Among these was Pension Commis
sioner Dudley, who managed the late
campaign for Blaine in Ohio. New
York is substantially given up as
about certain to go tox Cleveland. It
is recognized that it Is up hill work
to carry this State.? Little money
will, therefore, be sfeut here. The
Republicans will make a noisy and
demonstrative campaign in New York,
and the Blaine caravan will go about,
but this will be done to divert the
attention of the Democratic managers.
While all this noise is being made
keen, Republican managers will be
Dudleyizing Indian, New Jersey and
By these methods the Republicans
expect to get Indiana certain, and
New Jersey, if desperate means will
accomplish the result. This would
elect Blaine, provided he carried the
hitherto Republican States, even
though New York go against him.
The Democrats are basing some hope
on Wisconsin, but it is not a good re
liance unless there should be a Cleve
land cyclone. Should 151 a ine get the
naturally Republican States, Cleve
land will have, to get New York and
Indiana, or New York, New Jersey
and Connecticut to be elected. He
could not spare Indiana and Connec
ticut nor Indiana and New Jersey.
This is now the Democratic danger
It may be discovered when it too late.
Dudley goes at once to Indiana, where
United States marshals and govern
ment officials will be employed as in
Ohio, to debauch the State. The New
Jersey campaign will be managed
from this citv. Money will be poured
into both States, while all over New
York a ceaseless racket will be main
tained. There is not much danger
that the Democrats will lose New
York, but they may be caught nap

Philadelphia, Oct. 23. At a late
hour lat oi-ht Wm. W. Hirt, Dem
ocratic candidate for city comptroller,
withdrew from the ticket in a letter
to the Democratic executive commit
tee. Hirst is at present comptroller and
was nominated to Succeed himself.
His private financial transactions with
a friend a year ago afforded room for
charges of forgery against him, which
have been widely published in the
present campaign. Hirst says in his
letter of declination that although he
has denied the charges under oath,
and exposed the motives which influ
enced their authors, he feels that his
usefulness as a candidate has been se
riously impaired, and seeing that suc
cess to the Democratic ticket, local
aud national, imperiled he resigns.

Mr. Blaine left Evansville, at 8:30

"The enumeration of male inhabi
tants iu 1883 shows that there were
66,298 males, of which number 1,683
were colored, and yet over 72,000
votes were polled at the election iu
that city. The enumeration taken in
1883 included all persons over the age
of twenty-one years, whether they
were naturalized citizens are not. Yet
within a period of fifteen months from
that. date we fine cast iu that city 7,
000 uiore votes than there were citi
zens only a year previous. At least
6,000 votes cast in Hamilton county
last Tuesday were fraudulent Repub
