ury under President (Jkant. The
Republican party In Ohio finding
themselves in a strait, not LHin
able to refuu the charges of cor-
rtiptioii ag-ainst their candidate, the
chairman of the State committee
addressed a, letter to Senator I...T
M. iloKKiLL sUitiu that the situa
tion was critical on account of the
attack made upon Mr. Bl.unk, and
that he, Mr. Mokrill, being from
the same State could refute the
charges better than any one else.
The chairman of the committee
doubtless folt the effects of his
9erions blunder when he received
the following letter from the widow
of the dead Senator:
To Broim. Chairman, i'uiumbus, ( 'l.u:

for had o du (traced iuelf m to nomin

hijjheat ortic within Uie gift of the
American popl. as I know and my
husband knew Jame (5. Blaine to be.
If he wore alive he would not support'
Mr. Blaine, or any such man, nt the
bidding of hn party.
The committee having got their
"foot iu it" endeavored to et it
oat by stating that they only sent
Senator MoBKH. I. the same circular
letter that they sent many other
,prtker, and that his name had
not Ix-en cherked olT the list which
thy had used in campaigns In-fore.
They also deny hariug revived the
answer sent by Mrs. M..KU1I I .
P.ut let Mrs.. MuK.MI.I. tell the
story in her own words as gien to
a Hrral'l reportei :

an absolutely correct report ot the

"I recall," said Mrs. Morrill to
the Herald correspondent, "an in
stance of inj husband's high sense
of honor as compared with Mr.

Some railroad bill wa.s up in the
Senate. Senator Morrill, as I know,
studied its provisions for days. lie
became convinced that it was a
good bill, and made a speech in the
Senate advocating it. It was in
the last days ol the session. We
came home, and a day or two alter
our arrival a messenger brought an

A young cub had climbed a tree
twenty feet. Another was banging
on the iron door, of his cell to get
out. as only a certain number are
permitted to occupy the large pub
lic dens af a time. Some years
ago an English officer fell into their

I bought some to carry home. It
is said that lientholdus oth killed
a bear on the spot where the city
now stands, and said, "llere I will
build, and call the city 'Baren,' or
Bern." In the Cathedral Terrace a
handsome bronze monument has
been erected to this
UEKTHOLJJ VON L0IIR1NGEN'.
It consists of a life sized statue,
on a marble base perhaps 15 feet
high, with a bear standing up and
acting as helmet-bearer. On each
side of the base is a bronze relief
with an inscription. It may be in-
teresting to describe this, and new-
to Xew Bernians. On the front is
' Berthold's coat of arms; a shield
: surmounted by a crown; iu the
, center a lone or griffith raging, but
chained; and a sword and spear
; crossed under the shield, and pro-
jeering irom tne corners
neath is this inscription:
Next comes a bas relief of the
slaying ot the bear in the hunt.
There are the tree, the dead bear
and a dog with his mouth
bruin's neck, the Iuke with up
lifted hand, and other hunters.

This is a handsome testimonial
to this founder of Bern. In the
great cathedral also there is an
elaborate Lahringer monument, on
the eastern wall of the northern
side aisle, in the inelegant style of
the 1 7th century. It is too exten
sive to be described here. The
founding was iu 1101 .
This is a beautiful church of the
! ot hie i i der, or old 11m school of
architecture. It is one of the pret
tiest and most interesting buildings
kind I have seen. It Was
begun iu 1421, and was two cen
tuiies in building. Its tower is
still uncompleted and will be otiO
feet high, ii' ever finished. There
are some very peoulirr sculptures
over the west portal representing
the Last .Judgment: and the ten
Yiigins. with one of the foolish
virgins with her linger in her eye!
The wood carving on the choir
stalls is striking and tine. The
bear lreipieiitly appears here in the
devices. Its organ is one of the
liiiest in Switzerland.

least the light of truth to shine all about
lie began by an attack upon the rec
ord of Mr. Cleveland, and as if to fill in
time, he took up the railroad bib veto
of the Governor, charging thai he had
vetoed a bill reducing fares on the ele
vated railroads in New York City to five
cents for Ijboring men. and by that veto
caut-ed the laboring men of that city t
nave to pay ten oents every time tbey
rode upon them. Now lets see how
that tallies with what the railroad com
missioned of the State of New York re
ported at the time, not dreaming: that
ii wouiu ever De an issue in a fresiden
tial campaign. Hear the report :
"The report of the majority of the
commission contained the conclusion
that a reduction to a five cent fare
throughout the day would, at the num
ber of passengers carried in 1882. 're
duce the gross income o as to prevent.
tne roaos trom even paying interest on
their bonded debt in full. The laboring
classes of New York are carried be
tween the hours of 5:30 and 8:30 a. m.
ana 4idu ana v :su p. m. , at live cents.
upon trains which run at intervals of
forty-five seconds. The reduction
would not so much benefit them, there-
lore, as it would the class who are bet
ter able to pay ten cents than the labo
rers are to pay five.
Mayor Edson also said in a letter
urging the Governor to interfere in the
"It is unreasonable, I think, to sup
pose mat any road can be constructed
over which passengers can be carried at
any proht. from the Battery to Harlem
river, for five cents at all hours of the
day and night, as they are now carried
by the elevated roads.
"To say nothing, then, of the bad faith
toward these chartered companies
which this bill would confirm, to iuter
terfere through such legislation in a
matter so vital to the safety of so large
a proportion or this community is, as I
view it, a startling thing to do. "
Among many letters of approval re
ceived by the Governor was the follow
ing from the President of Rochester
University, who, not being a politician,
but engaged in teaching and training
young men for a life of usefulness, we
copy in full:
"Rochester, March 4, 1883.

I in justice to my convictions, refrain
from expressing my gratitude fo your

manlike positions taken in your message
seems to me a most fitting rebuke to the
demagogism .vhich is ready to trine
with those sacred rights of property
guaranteed by our state and national
constitutions. In these safeguards . of
property the poor man has a more vital
interest than the capitalists, for they
make secure the poor man's savings,
which constitute his only means of sup
port. I have taken occasion to com
mend your message to the careful con
sideration of my students as an exhibi

govern their actions should they be
called to fill public station in their fu
ture lives. I trust you will pardon me
for obtruding myself upon your atten
tion. As a teacher of young men,
I feel grateful to any public
functionary who illustrates in his per
son the lessons which I am so anxious
to impress upon their minds. Again I
thank you for the courageous and
worthy action which you have adopted
to secure sound government for our

Careful reading of the above will
show the utter straits to which the Re
publicans are reduced to find an issue
against the Democratic candidate.
Mr. Boyd went for Geo. "VVm. CurUs
because he had declined to support the
nominee of his own convention; and
then quoted him as denouncing the
Democratic party as one of no principles
and very hungry and extremely thirsty,
but forgot to say that Curtis was ably
supporting the nominee of the same
Democratic party with all its defects,
declaring that lie could not support so
criv)r.and utterly unfit a man as James
G. Blaine, is known to be, for the posi
tion of President. Other positions taken
were equally untenable, and if thiB is
the "big gun'" of the party, we are din
posed to view with compassion these of
a smaller calibre. A DEMOCRAT.
