All three tickets are in the field
now; the citizens can judge of their
merits and qualifications. It woa'd be
idle to talk to the men who aid. and
put up, as you maj say, any one of
these tickets. Their minds art made
up, they are presumed leaders in their
parties, and they know how they want
to rote and what objects art behind,
and control their motives and actions.
To them, words are useless; to tht
great mass of voters, to the honest,
quiet citizen at his r her fireside, the
Herald would say a few words. The
object and aim of all poiitic.il action
u to secure better and more equal
forms of government for the city,
county or state; therefore behind each
party represented by their ticket,
there should be some principles.
The men and women on the ticket
may be good enough as individuals,
but if they represent nothing, stand
fr uo i3sues, or for unwise ones,
there can bo no useful thing accom
plished by voting for'them. The ouIt
ticket that does represent a fixed sys
tem of principles on any subject of
importance to the people, is the Re
publican ticket, and therefore, the
Hixald advises those who desire
to accomplish any good to vote for the
Republican nominees to a man.
There is no issue en Greenbackism
in this country now. nor ever likely
to be again; and if there was, a green
back ticket as a county issue, is non
sens. The Democracy have advanced no
new ideas, developed no greater sub
stantial hontsty, have presented noth
ing to the public worthy of acceptance
in years, and the very fact of their
coalition with the G. 15. ticket bhows
that there is no greater, higher aim
and object in their whole political
course than to pet as many oflices as
they can coax the people to rote them
into, on any pretense, and to beat the
Republicans out of all they can so

crimination enough to criticise fairly,
and in the right place the actions of

such a paper might succeed. Could a

a Democrat, ne' er exposed a public
evil, never advanced a true party is
sue, but have spent aluost their en
tire ammunition, in trying to black
guard the editor of this paper, and in
"busting up the Herald."
That they have not succeeded has
not been for lack of will, but only lack
of brains and means.
If Mr. Sherman follows the beaten
trail of his predecessors in this line,
his paper is short lived. If he has
that within him that insures succes3
and is consciencious ar.d honest in his
views, he may build up a lasting news
paper enterprise; something that is
really an opposition paper.

Washington, Oct. 13. The Presi

after next has broken all slates, and it
is asserted that he is more embarassed
than has hitherto been supposed. The
rumor that Conkling is to be a mem

friends say that the intention to ap
point Conkling has never been aban
doned. A western sena'or said this
evening that hp had felt such an ap
pointment wwuld be npce.-sarily fatal
to the success of the administration,
ami to the future of the party; that
he had gone to the president and pro

not indicate in any way his intention.
In reply to a question, the Senator
said Conkling would be confirmed
probably unanimously. There could
be no objection to him on the score
of ability or integrity, bu,t the ap

Blaine went to a prominent gentleman
who is friendly with both parties, and
told him that, if Mr. Conkling desired
it, he should be appointed within fif
teen minutes to the vacancy in lha

nothing against Conkling; but I am
