Abraham Lincoln was in his day the
target for unmeasured abuse: his very
nomination was regarded as an outrago
and an insult by those who thought
that Seward should have been the chosen
of the Republican convention. At the
receut convention, which nominated
James G. Blaine" there was a handful
of so-called Independents who thought
that Edmunds snould have, been the
nominee, and. failing him, they desired
nobody. The Edmunds following in 1884
was by no means as large or as respect
able as was the Seward following in
18G0, but in James G. Blaine the
country has a man from whom it may
expect as much in time of doubt or
difficulty as. ever it received from Lin
clon. Seward is gone. Edmunds is
buried out of sight beneath a mountain
of Republican votes, but in Blaine we
have a man in whom the glories of Lin
coln will live again. 'lhe very spito
and venom of the attacks made upon
him show how formidable he is in the
eyes of his enemies. With such weap
ons Washington was assailed nearly a
centun- ago; they were turned against
Lincoln; they were leveled at Garfield's
breast but asked the country (as it
will be asked in November) how much
they regard them. No more and no
less" than Blaine regards them to-day.

But take the majority of the party;
take the great concensus of public opin

Take the great political papers of the
West and read of Blaine. He is no
half-way politician no shirker from
his party's ranks in the tents of Inde
pendence. He is a Republican of Re
publicans, and represents all thai is
noblest in the grand old party. He was

State where a transfer of 20,000 votes

reader. It may be said with
strict truth that it is more probable that i
Mr. Blame will carry either of these
States than that he will lose any one of
