actual delegates were represented
by able and intiuential exponents
of their own choosing. These dele
gates and representatives partici

the committees, and helped to
frame the policy of the convention.
They had a full and fair oppor
tunity to state their wishes, organ

an acceptable candidate. That
opportunity they neglected. Their
solicitude for the nartv welfare" and
public good was not, apparently,
equal to their solicitude for the
triumph of individual favorites for
whose nomination there was no de
mand outside of their immediate
circle, rnwilling to sink their
personal rivalries and preferences,
they persisted in scattering their
votes, and so wastingtheir strength
were defeated. Even then they
did not protest, but, on the con
trary, acquiesced in the result, and
helped to make it unanimous. To
the very last they made themselves
responsible for the acts ot the Con
vention, whose result they now re
pudiate. It is not even pretended that
Mr. Blaine's nomination was not
fairly and properly made. Every
Republican journal and every Re
publican dissentient admits that he
was nominated because the party
demanded it because he was the
honest, hearty, spontaneous choice
of the delegates representing the
Republican States an.l Republican
const ituences in Democratic States.
If this is true, then, the Independ
ents in opposing IIr. Blaine rebel
agaitist the rule of the majority:
and it is altogether unfair for them
to allege that their complaint is
against the candidate when, as a
matter of fact, it is agaiust the
party, in whose highest council
they have participated with all the
rights and privileges enjoyed by
If it is said by them that the
parry is corrupt and controlled by
ivil iniluences. then the obvious
answer is that, in entering the Na
tional Convention of the party, they
deliberately gave t heir sanction to
a thing they knew to be unworthy
of their approval. And the inquiry
naturally arises: If they knew
this, and did not intend to abide by
the action of this convention, why
did they go into it at all?
It does not help the case of the
bolfeis to allege that Mr. Blaine is
an unfit man to lead the party
hosts. They ceitainly are neither
wis"i- nor purer, more enlightened
or more paiiiotic. than the great
body of their party. Their judg
mi'n; of Mr. Blaine's life and career
is cnrnled to no more respect, and
is no more likely to be infallible,
than that of some hundreds of
thousands of men who are proud to
follow his illume. And. besides,
Mr. Blaine is no less worthy of eon
Iideiice to-day than he has been at
any lime within the last twenty
! a;s. during all of which these
vciv ini'ii have marched whei e In
