The star route swindle is likely to
develop some curious features and in
volve some very "honored names. The
inference from -Brady's "disclosures is
that the president, if not a participant
in tho frauds, .shared in tlio spoils to
the. extent of having the moiwy used
"for ids service. If this is true, it must
have been known to a large part of the
ropiildican committee as well us the
leaders in tho lato campaign.- Omaha
From evidence coming to light tho
star route ring comprises honored
names 'of both parties and was used by
both political aspirants of Presidential
candidates. Even tho honored name
of Wiitfield Scott Hancock is mixed ' in
the scandal, and it is as clear aB any
thing yet noted regarding tho matter,

that tlioy never took up the "star routo"
business? Investigations hitherto
which havo resulted in tho discovery
of scoundrelism havo invariably un

The president lias finally declared
vnr against Conkllng, Or, at least,
that is the way it looks; ho having
withdrawn tho names of Conkling's
pnitienlar Mends for oflicial positions
in New York, and refused to with-
J draw the name of Robertson, his par
ticular enemy. This fuss between
Conkllng and the President is much
to bo regretted, as regardless of who is
to blame, or most to blame, it will
raise such dissensions in New York
as will most surely lose that stato to
thoRepublican party. It is also a mat
ter of regrot and supriBO on tlio part
of the admirers of President Garfield
that he should manifest a disposition
that borders on to the vindictive. "Wo

Something more than patronage in the
struggle over the senatorial ollices, and
thus defends Mahone and the Republi

trayed no trust, has violated no pledge,
proven falso to no piirtylobliation, and
disappointed the expectations of not
a singlo man in the party to which ho
owes his placo. They can not justly
lay a single charge against him, and it
is not for this that their anxiety and
fear aro exhibited. They seo in tho
principles involvod, in tho progressive
ideas and policy proclaimed, tho en
trenchments of tho solid South broken,
and the defenses of tho Democratic
party destroyed. It is an invitation
to the young men. tlio new, fresh blood
and brain of the South, to come to the
front and assert their equal rights nnd
privileges, despite tlio sneers and
scoffs of tho old regimo which has
ruled with an iron hand for years, to

Tlio testimony elicited from trust

part, uncontradicted on tho Bourbon

llotiuo nearly 2,000 colored Republicans
wore not allowed to voto. At John

.100 and f00 of tho same class of votora
were not permitted to doposllo their
ballots ; a colored man was also killed
at this poll, and no offorts havo been

oven the tear of being shot did not

barricado erected in front of tho poll to
doposito their ballots they paid for their
temerity by having cayenne popper

tested agilinst this barbarity were
threatened with arrest for inciting riot.
Democratic lawlessness reigned su
premo at every poll in this county, and
very few Republican votes woro polled.
At Buford's Bridge, .Barnwell County,
a baud of armed men drove about 400
colored Republicans from tho poll, and
a Confedorato Hag was hoisted over tho
precinct. At .Barker's and soveral
other precincts armed men prevented
Republicans from voting. In Hamp
ton County, near Beach Branch, nine
armed Democrats waylaid the thrco
colored men who had tho Republican
tickets for that vicinity, and compelled
them to deliver them up at tho mouth
of the pistol. In Colleton County tho
Commissioners of Election refused to
count the vote of Jncksonboro a largo
Republican precinct because tho box
was full at 1 o'clock, and tho managers
closed the poll. At Sunimorvillc
another Republican stronghold tho
poll was not opened at nil. At tho
Vitiligo" the vote, heavily Iopublican,
was thrown out because the managors
procured a second box, Us the first
could not hold all the tickets.
To Conkling perhaps moro than to
any ouo man Garfield owed his election.
In ids party Conkling is trusted by all.
and is the idol of many. In tho Somite
no man of his party seems to become
his rival as a Senator or statesman.
On the Senato floor if ho is not loved
he is respected, and bis place as one of
tho leading Senators in the nation is
not questioned. Between him and
Garfield thero could honorably bo no
rivalry. Garfield is great by virttio of
being tlio olflcinl head of fifty millions
of peoplo. Conkling is great by nature
and by his acknowledged leadership.
Tlio people conceded to each his place,
and snw no cause for rivalry. But
Garfield was seized with a fit of Presi
dential foolishness, and struck at
Conkling to bring hhndolvn. Ho be
lieved Conkling's position as leader
could be broken, and that tho peoplo at
largo could bo made to esteem him
less. Tho blow struck washy an ap
