Ex Congressman Mcbck, of Maine
has declared for Blaine. He will make
addresses iu California in favor of the
Republican ticket. Mr. Murch was
elected to Congress from one of the
Maine districts ia 1878, defeating Eu
gene Hale. His oppobition to Cleve
land is intense.
The associated press dispatches of
today contain the letter of -acceptance
of James G. Blaine, an Ameri
can citizen from the State of Maine,
who has been named by the great Re
publican party of this nation as its
standard bearer. This letter is too vo
luminous to giye our readers in today's
issue. We ask all our readers to pro
cure and read this letter, both republi-
cans ana democrats, xi win ao you
good. It will enable yon to form an
estimate of the stalwart man who
wrote it. You will read it with the
comfortable faith and assurance that
no committee, no syndicate, no man, ex
cept the gifted, accomplished and al
ways ready statesman, James 6.
Blaine, himself, penned it; that it is a
Blaine production from top to bottom
and in itself constitutes a Blaine plat
form long enough aud broad enough
tor everybody to stand on, long side
the great American 'leader. You will
dnd it full of patriotism, full of wis
dom, full of statesmanship. In fine,
you will find it an admirable and com
plete paper, just such a paper as the
next President of the United States
should and will stand upon.
The Herald admits itself unable
to add to this admirable production, by
comment, hence we say to our readers,
one all, read it and judge for yoor
The first thing our modern college
professors, who imbibe the fr:e trade
doctrine, do, ia to assume everybody
but themselves are ignoramusec, and
then deliberately lie to the classes they
pretend to instruct.
i ror. ouraner sometime fcince, was
Ciught deliberately lying about the la
boring men of Massachusetts, and now
it falls to tfie lot of Senator Hoar, of
that state to 9how up rrofessor Elliott
of Cam! ri lge n his true light.
A phort trae since, Prof. Elliott har
angued the young men of Cambridge in
a set speech, in which his sole object
was to' belittle America iu their eyes,
In that harangue, the man of culture
told hi audieuoa that American duties
npen imports was ruining the couutr',
and cited them an instance in Cam
bridge which had come under his own
personal observation, lie said a man
ufacturer there by the name of Ives,
had made and sold wagons in Australia
at a great profit, until the duties laid by
this country upon the material he used
in bis wagont had become so burden
some he could no longer compete with
English manufacturers of exactly the
sadf class of goods.
The Professor told the young men
he had personally investigated that
identical case and knew whereof he
spoke, aud that there were "thousands
cf like cases existing in this country."
Of course this college professor knew
he was deliberately lying to the boys,
but he supposed no one would dare
question his veracity However, Sena
tor George F. Hoar seems to have
grown a little tired of the manner in
which Cambridge culture is teaching
the youth of that locality to hate Amer
ican institutions; consequently, the
other day at the Blaine ratification
meeting, he took occasion to pay bis
respects to the sacred temples of learn
ing in and abont Cambridge. He took
up the case of Ives, and showed in the
first place, if that manufacturer used
Swedish iron and English cloth in the
manufacture of each wagon he had for
merly sold to the Australian trade,
that the outside duty would uot exceed
$1,36 on each wagon. He 6howed by
Mr. Ives, the manufacturer himself,
that this cost was entirely unuecessary,
as American iron and American cloth
was fully as good as the imported cloth
and iron, and sold as well in his wag
ons. Next, senator ttoar snowed that
Mr. Ives had never informed Prof. El
liott that American duties interfered
with the sale of these wagons in Aus
tralia, but, on the contrary, the trouble
was that the Australian tariff of 33 per
cent direct against his goods, made it
unprofitable for the American mer
chant to longer trade with that British
In other words the moment the
Australian statesmen found the Ameri
can manufacturer could compete with
the English manufacturer, they laid up
the bars of protection and excluded the
Yankee from that English reserve.
Senator Hoar further showed that
while the American could compete with
the Englishman in Australia, without
a tariff, he was at the same time paying
his workmen double the wages the
English manufacturer paid.
While Senator Hoar succeeded in
making a splendid showing in this case
for our American manufacturers, he
succeeded in showing Prof. Elliott to
be a demagogue and a fraud.
The Korth American Review for Au
gust contains an article by Justice J as:
V. Campbell on "The Encroachments
of Capital" which will command the
serious attention of all readers. Rich
ard A. Proctor treats of "The Origin of
Comets," and succeeds in presenting
that difficult subject in a light bo clear
that persons who haye litte or no ac
quaintance with astronomy can follow
his argument. "Are we a Nation of
Rascals?" isAthe startling title of an
article by John F. Hume, who shows
that states, counties and municipali
ties in the United States have already
formally repudiated, or defaulted in the
payment of interest on, an amount ot
bonds and other obligations equal to
the sum of the national debt. Judge
Edward C. Loring finds a "Drift to
ward Centralization'' in the recent
judgment of the United States Spreme
Court on the power of the Fedeial
Government to" issue paper money,
and in the opinion of the minority of
the same court rendered in the suit for
the Arlington property. Julian Haw
thorne writes of "The American Ele
ment in Fietion," and there is a sympo
sium on "Prohibition and Persuasion,"
by Real Dow tad Dr. Dio Lewis.

Lothrop & Co. Price 25 cents. Tbo
publishers have shown rare judgment
in puttin this excellent story into their
nsw and popular Young Folks' Libra'
ry. Miss Eastman, it will be remem
bered, took the prize of one thousand
dollars offered several years ago by
this hoo6e, for the best Sunday School
story, and present book Is in every par
ticular its equal. The heroine is the
daughter of a clergyman, "a girl who
was neither all good nor all bad, but
partly one and partly the other," and
the narrative of her trials and exper
iences is intended as a guide and help
to other girls who have these of the
same kind to contend with, and to im
press upon them the lesson that 'the
only road to happiness lies through the
land or goodness."
