-1 OUR NEW YORK LETTER. THE VIEWS OF AN EX- -GOVERNOR. Feeling in Wall Street-Beaconsfield's Prodiction--Mr. Pendleton's Great Speoch at Elentou--General Ewing's Roseate Prospects. From an Occasional Correspondent.

NEW YORK, October 2. There isan uneasy feeling here among the national banks and syndicate people as to the result in Ohio, The increase of the Greenhackers to the extent of ten thousand in one rear in Maine lends them to fear an over. production 1 of Greenbackers in Ohio this fall. The great personal popularity of General among the farmors and his devotion Boring interests causes the syndicate people of Wall and Lombard streets to fear a silent rote among that class that will elect tho General by a surprising majority. "The farmers out West," Haste remarked a prominent ex-Governor to me evening at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, "feel now more thanever that they are wronged by tho contraction and hoarding policy of John Sherman.

The farmers feel sore over the low prices for their Why, sir, this policy has cut UPcrops, WARDS OF FIVE HUNDRED MILLIONS OFF THE PRICES OF THEIR CROPS THIS YEAR THAT THEY FURNISH TO EUROPE. We are selling our corn, wheat and pork to Europe at less than the average cost to produce it and if we keep on that way for a few years longer we shall have one of the greatest panics known in financial history. It is like a merchant who lay's in an immense stork of goods on credit and then proceeds to sell them off below cost, and doing business in this way he must either go aver himself or his creditors must LORD BEACONSFIELD SEES IT. crafty Prime Minister utters a threat in his late speech at Aylesbury when he says that a high authority tells him that "UNDER ALL THE CIRc*msTANCES THE MARKETS OF THE UNITED STATES MUST BE DISTURBED ere long. Does he not point to the very condition of affairs of the coming of which General Ewing NO eloquently and untiringly, day after day, now warns the people of Ohio! The sham resumption scheme now working smoothly is founded altogether on the law of chances, and if the Rothschilds and Barings see tit to bring 011 a panic in England and send back a few millions of bonds to disturb our markets and crowd more wheat and pork into their cart-wheel dollar what is to prevent them? The prices of wheat, corn and pork are advancing now too rapidly to suit them on account of the expansion by the remonetization of silver, and nothing would please them more than to "disturb" our marlets and more hog into the dollar." And were it not for the remonetization of silver, limited as it is, and the reserve of silver dollars which would flow out in the shape of certificates in case of tight money, they could easily bring on such a disturbance.

Beacon field sees that we are selling our proluce below cost, and no country in debt as we are, can do that without bringing oll itself extreme distress and misery in the long run. But," I asked, "does not the recent statement of Secretary Sherman show a vast improvement in the condition of things between the beginning and the closing period of the financial revulsion!" The ex-Governor-' According to the Secretary's exhibit it is claimed that the corn crop of 1579 exceeded that of 1-12 by the enormous sum of 40 bushels. In a normal state of affairs that great difference should have been for the benefit of the farmers by whose toil the crop was produced. But when this crop was sold instead of yielding a result in money proportionate to the increased production, it realized OVer 8 hundred millions less than that of 1573. And this rude experience was extended al-0 to the other leading cereals.

The wheat crop of 1975 was 141,000,000 bushels greater than that of 1878: but when the returns of sales came in it was found that what may be called the short crop of sold for more than sixty millions of dollars above and beyond the long crop of 1878. lu these two crops alone there was a differonce against the farmers of more than one hundred and sixty millions of dollars, and chis ratio extended to most other agricultural products, as the farmers of the West, tax and debt -burdened, well know to their cost. The pretense, therefore, of this financial trickster, Johu Sherman, that quantity in crops will reNeve the farmer from the effects of his accursed contraction and hoarding under the sham resumption scheme and bring prosperity falls to the ground by the simple weight of truth. The additional labor in tilling the soil and the other elements which entered into the raising of crops of 1875 were so much loss to the farmers as compared with 1873.7 not the prices of wheat, corn and pork much better this year Governor?" "Homewhat better, owing to the expansion of the currency by the remonetization of silvar and the law declaring the legal tenders noeivable for custom duties. The farmer should, however, with the short crops over most of Europe except Russia, be receiving two dollars instead of one per bushel for his wheat, and fourteen dollars instead of seven for his pork.

and a dollar a bushel for his corn instead of forty cents. He could then pay better wages to his help. As Solon Chase SAV4, 'the money kings have legislated so as to crowd forty pounds of pork into the Are we not having a general revival of Governor: 1 3 3 not call it a revival. The great West j- Here of goods, and the merchants here from West are baying small lots and complain of the warcity of money. There is a great lemand for iron to build iron buildings and new rods in the far West, where emigrants are pouring in.

"Do vou think that General Ewing will certainly be elected?" beyond a doubt. I cannot sue how it can be otherwise. The farmers and laboring classes in Ohio see that the defeat of Ewing, the great Greenbacker of the West, would be a severe blow to the labor and farming interests. They feel that they must Vote for Ewing to protect their OWn interests. The defeat of Ewing would result in A renewed agitation for the completo retirement of all the greenpacks.

Already the Erening Post here in New York demands that they shall be retired and destroyed. Let thein beware of pressing the people too hard, for I believe that the people will gut half the banks in Wall street before they will permit the first legal tender to destroyed. Great Gol, sir! what a land of milk and honey this woull be if we had a greenback per capita circalation of sixty dollars instead of ten! The farmers of Ohio, the most intelligent class of people in this country, this, and when election day come. I tell you the sturdy yeomanry of the backwoods wit poll a vote for General Ewing, the great champion of 14 cheap currency as opposed to the dollar of the gold lords, that will confound John Sherman and all the bank rings, syudicate makers and bondbolding drones who curse the land."

H. S. V. EDITORS That West Virginia Soldier? (liar) of PLAIN Leader ago published your city a few days purport of editorial and "extract" the an among which was to excite the Federal soldiery of the North-in prejudice that a certain soldier of the loyal state of West Virginia had been imprisoned for AN offense committed during the late war of tho states, whilo in the dischargo of his duty as loyal defender. I attended an indignation mecting of my: contender an Thursday old and evening tried and veteran found should blood mustor without the bust evidence of factsand that, too, when it concerned a state in the North whose loyalty to the Union cause has for the first time over been questioned, and now only by a pandering speculator on the blood of the truest loyalists of the American Union.

Does not that editor know it is far safer to travel in West Virginia with your political views than in many states further North! Does ho not know that West Virginia gave majority of about 30,000 for vote much larger (as 1 know) than she was entitled to? Is she now disloyal, or was she during the war in failing to vote secession and instead sending to the federal front more than her own strength to whip back her wayward children? Can that linen collar-soldier editor give his readers the slightest reasons for his. advocacy of sectional prejudice in the North? The substance of that editorial is a lie, and no brave man would be its author. I was for two years a Sherman "bummer" and since the war have had my uninterrupted argument in the South wherever we had been. have traveled throughout own state and never been the least backward in my hot speech against their wrong-doing, and found all the Leader's "bushwhackers" true and loyal Republicans, the courts all controlled by men of unbiased minds, and the "bloody shirt" unknown. Stop your blathering idiocy -we as old soldiers want that "peace and good will to all men" we took the bloody contract to secure.

WEST VIRGINIA VETERAN. CLEVELAND, Oct. 1 11. Stop That Story, Little Peter's Effort in the Third Ward. EDITORS PLAIN attended the meeting of the Republicans of the Third ward, held at 96 Bank street last night.

There were present about forty persons, ten or twelve of whom were not Republicans to my own knowledge. Judge Young, the speaker selected by the committee, the notorious Jim Reilly and Bob Sullivan spoke, or rather attempted to speak. The Judge is a good friend to Jim Reilly and Bob and to men of their class. Well, the Judge said he left the "Demmys" because of a conscientious feeling he had-that-that-well, they would not give him the nomination for Probate Judge next time. and then the nomination for Congress thereafter, although he was told by prominent Democrats that it he "stuck" that he'll get those nominations, Well, now the Republicans call see what.

2. martyr he has made of himself to their cause. The Judge is immaculate. Everything he does is for the benefit of his country. The noble Judge did not tell how many times he has made a martyr of himself by getting up out of bed at all hours to "let out" for a "small thing." say the costs, certain ward bums whilst friendless poor cusses had to suffer illegally.

He said he was in the IVAH and at one tire he was Provost Marshal (a nice job by the way--just what the Judge would be likely to get for the benetit of his whole country Whilst acting as such he had charge of the spies, mules and other things. Well, as there was one colored man at the Third ward mass meeting he thought ha'd give him "tatty" so he told the meeting the white men under him "as a rule was in variably drunken, lazy loafers, and too cowardly to undertake to perform his orders, whilst the gallant colored man was brave and, unlike the Judge, self-sacrificing and always performed his duty cheerfully." He said Stephen Bubrer whilst in office put nine Irishmen to work whilst he gave only one German a Charley Schellentrager caught his share too -but such a sickly, rambling, ungentlemanly speech no. man ever listened to as his "Honah" made. Several Republicans were positively disgusted. Whilst speaking a member of the police had a little "favor" for him to do which the genial Judge did.

A warlike fellow called a Captain, named Hobday or some such name, spoke after him, but he rot 80 excited in calling down the maledictions of Heaven if he was telling any lies that he got mixed up and did not adhere to the truth very faithfully. He said at a political election in Baltimore, in 1872, twenty -nine colored and seven whites were shot, and himself (pity he did not then die for his country) was among them, He lost $100,000 by his being a Republican then. Well, in 1874, in Baltimore, he said seventysix men were shot. Such villainous lying I never heard. General Barnett looked a little ashamed to be compelled to listen to such crazy, lying, bigoted remarks.

This Trojan appealed to the god of battles to again go down to the South and die for his country or make $100,000, as he claims he made in less than four years-mules were cheap then, especially government mules. The meeting was a Republican one, however, and Demo crats and Greenbackers present smiled.complacently at the absurd theories propounded by Jim Reilley's and Bob Sullivan's speakers. Yours, A GREENBACKER. Some of the German Republicans are not desire to elected Treasurer. Mr.

circulating a story, that Dr. Bubrer does Buhrer did not ask the Democrats to DoIn- inate him but after they had placed him on the ticket, unsolicitedly, he concluded to run and desires to be elected. Mr. Buhrer's friends must not put any reliance in the stories put afloat by the "ring." If elected he will honestly care for the public moneys, will give personal attention to the oflice and will administer it satisfactorily. It would be a good thing to have 8 German Treasurer, SO that matters of taxation; could be explained to the many German citizens of this county.

The Republicans 8 are alarmed for fear that 'Buhrer's great popularity wilt get him a large number of votes of men who are opposed to the long rule the Court House clique.

I do not believe there will be scarcely any balloting and no dividing up and scattering of votes as there has been heretofore. The convention will be a unit on either Blaine or Grant." "What are John Sherman's chances in the presidential race?" "None whatever; in fact Sherman has an eye on the United States Senate and is ullquestionably shaping matters in that direction." Of course Mr. Carran would never--or hardly ever--support John Sherman. IIe is pledged to vote for "first, last and all the time," and he never, or hardly ever, goes back on any party.

Scores. EDITORS PLAIN DEALER: -Will you givo this article a place in your paper? 'F 'should have scut it to the Leader, but I knew it would not appear in that paper, although the editor knows mo-knows that I havo been a reader of his paper and a Republican ever since the organization of that party. During Mr. Carran's torm of oflice as City Attorney, his character, as represented by the Leader, corresponded so perfectly with the opinion I entertained of him, growing out of his individual transactions, as to satisfy me that I had not been mistaken in my estimate of the man. Among the things said of Mr.

Carran by the Leader by a reference to its columns be, found the tollowing complimentary notice of him. In speaking of him the Leader characterized him as "the careless and shiftless City Attorney," and spoke of "the carelessness and inefficiency which marked the 'administration of Mr. Carran." "An officer whose eflicial conduct has been so open to attack as that of Mr. Carran for the past two years, notonly in regard to competency and eciency but also other things." What the other things were the Leader did not deem it necessary to publish. That paper expressed the sentiment which I then elldorsed as I do the man who regarded his word and honor of no account or importance, is not one.

to be trusted with the important office of City Solicitor, as he who is regardless of his personal honor is as a rule regardless of honesty, and that it is for the people of Cleveland to say whether they will continue in office such a mass of shiftlessness and incompetency like Mr. Carran." And the Leader said further that "the present ineflicient and careless City Attorney, T. J. Carran, who by his gross inuttention to his duty came near involving the city in hundreds and thousands of dollars damages." Now Mr. Editor I am appealed to by the Leader and asked to support for Senator the identical person whom that paper held up in such an unenviable light.

I must, however, decline to do so, as my opinions touching his official and personal qualifications and characteristics, which then accorded so perfectly with that paper, have undergone 110 change since that time, but only confirmed by a more careful and studied observation of that individual. ft. It is surprising to me, as I doubt not it is to thousands, that the simple act of leaving one party and going into another, especially when the motive is so apparent, would at once transform an incompetent and dishonest man into one both competent and honest. I can appreciate the embarrassing necessities which impel a party organ to nominally sustain an entire party ticket while privately abhoring some portions of it, but I confess to surprise and disappointment that a paper SO ably conducted, and which has at times risen above caucus dictation, should in this instance, of all others, go back oll its record, its known private sentiments and its public teachings, and commend Thomas J. Carran as worthy of public confidence and the support of honest men for the honorable position of State Senator.

The necessity of tho Republican party in this county does not call for the prostitution of the office of Senator. The merchants, manufacturers and business men of the city and the farmers of the townships are abundaut who would lend grace and dignity to the place. The learned professions are full of accomplished Republicans, whose acknowledged talents and known integrity suggest their fitnesss for such honors as often as it is neccessary to make a draft for public service. Every street in the city can furnish a score of able, honest and efficient Republicans worthy of the public confidence and the position. The Republicans of this county call look back with pride for a generation over its list of Senators, embracing, among other honored nuines, Moses Kelley, F.

I. Backus, Dr. J. P. Robison, Samuel Williamson, William Bingham, Dr.

Streator, Dr. Schenek and Dr. Curtiss. And now shail the proud old Republican party take a new departure with such a senatorial candidate and such a character as the Leuder so graphically and so truthfully described in its columns only a short time ago? It would seem like a travesty written on the memory of Moses Kelley, and a farce enacted on the character and public services of Samuel Williamson. I claim for the people of this county not only fidelity to principle, but so high a regard for honest men and eminent citizenship that even Democrats possessing high personal qualities have in days gone by inspired public confidence, and names as Harvey Rice, IL.

B. Payne, Samuel Starkweather, James D. Cleveland Judge Coffinberry have received handsome majorities in this Republican county. As render of the Leader for a quarter of century, I have a feeling akin to regret that I cannot follow it in sustaining the entire Re. publican ticket.

Towards the writer and hundreds of others in the coming election the Leader will have occasion to exercise its broadest charity when it remembers its dence structions that in the the past. senatorial We have nominee not has the been evireconstructed nature within the last few years. We regard him as the same yesterday, to-day and to morrow. Ie cam nO more be the reverse of what he was when the Leader characterized him than the Ethiopean can change his skin or the leopard his spots. If the oflicial and personal qualities ascribed to him by the Leader are by it regarded as among the essential qualifications for public service, then I confess that Thomas J.

Carran "'is admirably qualified for the position by 8 happy combination of defects, natural and acquired." A REPURLICAN SIXTIE WARD. CUYAHOGA'S CANVASS: News From All Along the Line. We have the bulge ou the Republicans now, and will keep it. We don't believe that Brinsmade will he Adjutant General, even if Foster is elected. The Greenbackers of Cuyahoga county have most gencrally concluded that they will vote for Ewing and Rice.

LOST--the Poster "boom." Anybody finding it will please report to the PapSuckers' Club. Good advice to certain candidates: "The man who gets the best of pokerplaying is the man who does not play." Chandler, at Akron, commenced his speech: "Fellow citizens of 0-ld rye" instead of Ohio. Charley Foster is invited to attend, as 11 looker on, the inauguration of General Ewing, next January. Post Master General Key will regret to learn that some of his Cleveland letter carriers are cursing him as a 'd-d old rebel." Bill Robison blew his bazoo at the West Side Republican mecting on Friday evening. Bill is Heavy on the bazoo.

It is supposed that the Voice will again hold up, to-morrow, that eminent Republican leader "Sile" Merchant to the public gaze. "Silo" does not like Hodge's boom. The uncommon pressure upon our colunns to day compels us to omit reports of several Democratic and Republican meetings held on Friday evening. The First ward Republican "large and enthusiastic" meeting on Friday evening over Ross' butcher shop was attended by twelve white and two colored men. Take Zach Chandler on the Public Squaro las the Leader designs upon the life of the great Stalwart? Where are the police? Figuratively speaking, "Sile" Merchant is the man who is holding "Technical Republican Carran" up for Republican votes.

What axe has "Sile" now to grind with Tom? Judge of this city, will address the Democracy of North Amherst, in the German language, on Monday eve. ning, October 6th. The boom against Tom Carran is plainly to be seen in the Republican ranks. True Republicans doubt his sincerity--knowing that he turned his coat because he wasn't nominated by Democrats on demand. Any employer who threatens to withhold or reduce wages or to discharge a laborer or refuses time for him to vote is punishable under the Seitz law.

Election day is coming and the Republican bummers, hot from the rooms of the Pap-Suckers' League, are raiding all the saloons and beginning to feel very important. Young said to the Third warders Friday night that once he was Provost Marshal in Florida and that the colored men he had under him were "more faithful than the Union soldiers." A Ewing and Rice Club was organized in the Fifteenth ward on Friday evening. It will meet on Tuesday evening in the Woodland avenue Wigwam. The of the Fifteenth are getting themselves into good shape for the election. Mr.

Chapman spoke at Bob Sullivan's night. Third ward The Leader Republican refers meeting to him on us Friday "the first speaker" without mentioning his name at all and the Ileruld prints his name wrong. The meeting announced for Saturday evening in the Eighteenth ward has been postponed until next Tuesday evening, at which time lIon. J. M.

Poe and Councilman Thomas Reilley will address the Democracy of the Tron Ward. "enthusiasm" for the Union Repub. lican League meeting at No. 307 Pearl street Friday evening was furnished by thirty -five people, was the size of the crowd. The Mayor's Clerk thinks the Republican legislative ticket is not safe and he urges the Radicals to look out for it.

The Mayor's Clerk has been through one siege of threatened reorganization and he doesn't want another. Young said in his speech to Bol, Sullivan's Third warders last night that he (Young) does not want the Republicans to nominate him for Probate Judge. will be remembered that Peter Young went so far as to publish a card that not want to be nominated for Police Ju The Herald, in speaking of Bob Sullivan's Third ward Republican last night, says: "Quite a number prominent men were present, among whom were Captain John Rezner, Captain John F. Kennedy, Messrs. J.

IT. Loomis, Charles' Eilard." Senator Bruce, like many other fond papas, has learned the unwisdom of naming babies after living men. Is son, born before the Canonchet eruption, is named Roscoc Conkling Bruce. The father is sorely troubled in his mind but will let the name stick until the sponsor makes a confession. There has been a wonderful change of sentiment in Cuyahoga county during the past three weeks.

The tables have been turned and it is now the Democrats who are jubilant and the Republicans depressed. The latter have discovered that the Germans are going to vote for Buhrer, Poe, Schellentrager and Hutchins. The First Ward Republican Club has stuck a piece of cloth out in front of its headquarters with the names of all the Republican candidates on it and a postscript at the bottom "'Give us a U. S. Senator." The boys ought at least to have politeness enough to say Please give us" etc.

lowever, the Democrats will elect 8 Senator without it. According to the Leader, Mayor's Clerk Sherwood in his specch Friday evening to thirty-five West Side Republicans called the Union Republican League, "discussed the question of the states being a Union and said this was one of the great issues of the present time." We refer to this to show that Mr. Sherwood either is a hopeless political idiot or else thinks the people of Cleveland are. Old Zach Chandler was the head devil of the great conspiracy by which Tilden and Hendricks were cheated out of their oflices. lIe glories in the theft, although he denounced Charley Foster and Hayes for seating Nicholls.

If you want to see the embodiment of Republican rascality, take a peep at Old Zach and keep hand on your pocketbook while looking at him. The First Ward Republican Club held a business meeting at its new rooms on Ontario street last evening, Mr. Silas Merchant presiding. -Leader. A handful of Bob Sullivan's Third ward Republican Club met Friday evening in a garret on Bank street and listened to Pete Young.

The Leader says the mecting "augurs well." So the Republicans have found out already that Young is an auger, -that is, a bore. A. small number straggled into the graveyard around the old church at Collamer while the air was permeated with Carran and listened to Henry McKinney and C. M. Stone attempt to show the imaginary wrongs committed by the Democrats on the Republican voters while the administration was thoroughly Republican.

The mecting was a fizzle. It waS composed mostly of boys, only about fifteen or twenty voters being present. To night "Mizzer" Zach Chandler will wave the "bloody shirt" on the Square. The war having been over for fifteen years, "Old- Zach" will shake up the skeletons and kick around the bones of the dead. Ie will blow his bazoo for Charley Foster, who, hike himself, staid at home when Ewing and Rice were fighting.

Ile will call Foster a patriot, and denounce Ewing and Rice as "rebels." 'The old fellow can't fool anybody by his talk, any more than he can make people believe that "Mizzer" 'Chandler is a fit person to lead a temperance boom in the Tabernacle. Chapman told the Third warders that if the Democrats get control of the govern ment they will pay $209,000,000 of Southern claims. But Chapman says "'we (Republicans) won't have it; we will meet them with the bayonet." It is surprising that 11 man of Mr. Chapman's supposed intelligence could have the hardihood to make such a statement when he knows that Republican Congresses paid millions on millions of dollars ot Southern claims but a Democratic Congress put a stop forever upon the payment of any more. At an enthusiastic meeting held at Dabler's Hall, October 3d, all necessary arrangements were made and proper committees appointed to report to an adjourned meeting to be held at the same hall on Monday evening, for the purpose of arranging 1 grand turn-out on Wednesday evening to attend the mass meeting and reception of lIon.

Poe and W. B. lillman, addressed an audience of nearly three hundred people at Solon last evening. It was the largest meeting of the campaign at that point and the great interest shown was highly gratifying not only to the speak ers but all Democrats in the vicinity. Mr.

Poe's reference to the tax question was listened to with a deep interest and Solon may be expected to contribute materially to Mr. P'oe's majority. The speech of Mr. Hillman was heartily received here as elsewhere. Solon is wide awake and will do noble work for the soldier ticket a iveck from next Tuesday.

FROM THE STATE CAPITAL. POLITICAL NEWS OF INTEREST, OT. The Blaine Boom Boometh No More -A Monster Fizzle -President Elect Tilden Coming to Ohio- General NewsIntelligence From Abroad. By Telegraph-Three O'Clock Edition; Special to the PLAIN DEALER. BLAINE BOOM BUSTED.

COLUMBUS, Oct. 4. -The Blaine boom, which began at Canton with such immense eclat, wound up at the state capital Thursday evening with an audience not exceeding 300 people -the worst fizzle of the entire campaign. It seems that a meeting had been arranged for the distinguished Senator at the North End, but he was so tired and disappointed with his meeting at Kenton that he absolutely refused to attend the meeting arranged for him, saying that "if the people wanted to see him they could come to the Neil House (over a mile from the place which bad been agreed upon for the meeting). The disappointed Republican leaders accordingly marched a band down street and some three or four hundred people gathered in front of the Neil House, some few shouting for Blaine.

When he was finally brought out he mounted into an express wagon and commenced his same old tirade against the Democratic party. His appearance and his oratory were both a great disappointment to the crowd. There are hundreds of speakers in Ohio who could have pleased the audience better than and for a long time it was almost impossible to persuade those, who were listening to him that this was the distinguished Senator from Maine. Blaine has grown corpulent and grey, and while shaking his fists at imaginary foes last night his appearance reminded many of chip caricature of Boss Tweed, which formerly appeared in Harper's Weekly. It only lacks the diamond ond shirt stud to complete the picture.

The performance was about equal to that of a fifth rate clown of an itingrant circus, and some among the audience, even after he had spoken some time, shouted Take him away and give us Blaine," showg how much difference there was between the Blaine of their imagination and the Blaine of reality. About half past eleven, after the crowd had dispersed, the "great Senator," linked arm in arm with a local celebrity, named Luther Donaldson, a national banker, marched over to the dance of the famous colored Palmer Guards, being held in the aty Hall. Taken all around Blaine's visit the state capital is the worst blow the Republicans have received in this campaign. The Democrats are very enthusiastic over it, and say that if Blaine will only continue in the state he will. largely increase Ewing's majority whether he repeats his famous Belluire remark, "Vote for the Inen who fought for you," or not.

The Fostoria meeting for General Ewing has also combined to knock the Blaine boom "sky-high," and the gallant soldier boys have now a clear field from this until the day of election. AN "INNER CONSCIOUSNESS." Tho secret of John Sherman's and DeColyer Garfield's sudden retirement from the canvasa has just leaked out. It seeins that some two or three weeks ago when the Republican Committee was debating over the importation of Blaine into Ohio the friends of Messrs. test against any such action, fearing that it Sherman and Garfield cha put in a positive profavorably to Blaine's presilential ambition. Mr.

Foster's friends, how. ever, deemed it necessary to take some measures to start a boom in his favor and they thought that Blaine would do it. How miserably Blaine has failed his meeting Thursday night is good evidence: but that the bringing of Mr. Blaine into Ohio had the effect of driving John Sherman and Garfield out of the state there is no longer a It inay be that now that the Blaine boom is bursted and his effectiveness on the stump materially injured by the fiasco at the capital that an effort will be made to resurrect Sherman and Garfield. But, as a prominent member of the Republican State Central Committee said last night, "it is 10 use; the jig's up." ON THE STUMP.

It is good news to learn that llon. Lewis Miller, of Akron, the Democratic-Greenback candidate for Congressman against Monroe last fall, has taken the stump to make au active canvass for Ewing and Rice. He will speak at Canton on Saturday evening before election. In a recent speech at Akron he said: "The Republicans of this town have bulldozed the workingmen long enough. When I was running for Congress last fall, men were threatened with discharge if they voted for mo.

His face reHects the various emotions his words would portray, and better facial expressions could not be given.

Scanlan has the title role and makes a good piece of work of it, while Cronin essays a female part with an unction that delighted his audience." HERRMANN.

Upon seating himself in the chair, he politely and cooly gave special directions to the tonsorial artist regarding a "close shave," and gracefully reclined his head in the usual way, leaving his throat and neck well exposed. The barber had lathered his face, and WAS honing his favorite razor at the shelf, when he heard a cry and upon turning around, imagine his horror at seeing the but young with gentlemau still seated in the chair a ghastly and deep cut across his throat and a razor in his hand. Paralyzed with fear, he threw up his hands and rushed to the door, stouting for "help!" "police!" "murder!" leaving the poor man in a sanguinary condition. Upon the police and crowd entering they saw no evidence of the alleged suicide, but the young foreigner buttoning on his collar unconcernedly. The barber stared and wondered but was disbelieved and the crowd followed the stranger up the street till ho entered the St.

Charles Hotel. Upon inquiring his name they found it was Hermann, the prestidigiteur. The Best and Most Sensible Underwear for this climate is tho Extra Heavy All Wool Scotch.
