"Who would have thought when John
Brown was hung at Charleston, Va., that
SO years from that time, John S. Wise
the son of the man who ordered old
"Ossowatomie's" execution Gov. Wise,
would be clamoring for a seat in a Re
publican National convention. Atchison.
The Milwaukee Sentinel says, regard
ing the mugwump vote: "The mug
wump of 1884 who Is a free-trader, will,
of course, yoto the democratic ticket this
year. As Jir. t;urtis remarked many
months ago the reform issue is overshad
owed by the free trader will support the
candidates of the republican party. The
mugwump as such disappeared from the
scene With the nomination of Harrison.
This year he will be a democrat or a re
publican." Mr. G. W. Smalley, the able London
correspondent of the New York Tribune,
summarizes the English view of our
Presidential campaign very clearly when
he says : "I have not met a single En
glishman who does not wish for Mr.
Cleveland's election, not one who does
not believe that English trade and manu
factures will benefit by his triumph."
Twenty five years ago it would have been
equally difficult to meet an Englishman
who did not believe and hope and pray
that the wac for the preservation of our
Union woijld be a failure. But the re
bellion was put down and Mr. Cleveland
will be defeated in spite of British
The disposition of some of the demo
cratic leaders to appeal to Mr. Randall
for help has called attention to a fact
which some of the free triders don't
know. That is. that Mr. Randall has in
his possession letters from the democratic
committee, written during the last cam
paign, urging him to come to their help
and to make protection speeches in New
York, New Jersey and Connecticut, while
about the same time tho committee wrote
to Abram S. Hewitt, of New York, who
had contemplated entering the campaign,
urging him not to proceed to those states
to advocate his views upon the tariff.
Possibly Mr. Mills may receive letters of
that sort before the campaign shall be
over. Mr. Randall is not talking for
publication to any one, but it is known
that in recent private conferences with
some of his more intimate friends he has
expressed the opinion that Mr Cleveland
will most certainly be defeated, and that
the party cannot hope to win upon the
platform laid down in the house by Mr.
Mills and. Ms free-trade allies from the
south. Bob Iugersoll told the crowds at
Chicago that when the holler was out of
the lungs the sense would come to the
head. The time has now come for the
democratic party. The holler is out of
their lungs and the sense has begun to
come to their heads, aud with it there are
premonitions of defeat. Ex.

The Democratic party is tho queerest
political compound on the face of the
earth. It is composed of free traders,
Copperheads and Confederates; and is
frantically supported by every English
newspaper, by every English free trader,
by English manufacturers, by every
American free trader, by every carping
mugwump, by nine-tenths of the saloon
keepers, brewers and distillers of the
United States. Its head, dictator and
candidate for the Presidency is the most
nollossal Chump this country has ever
produced. Its nominee for the Vice
Presidency is an old Ohio Copperhead,
whose chief distinction lies in the fact
that he has a record as an "obstructionist."
Its emblem.is an old red bandana. Its
history is the aggregated political crimes
