The Chief believes that the result will
be satisfactory to the people. So far,
we have a jood ticket in the field,
from president down to commi.-sioner,
and by the first of next week we will
have a complement of officers, Nation
al, State, and county, nominated on
the republican ticket, and then the
campaign will begin to move riht
along, and James G. Blaine and John
A. Logan will begin their complete
walk-a-way to the White House. The
hand writing is on the wall, and we
feel ;ure of the downfall of the demo
cratic party in November. There nev
erhas been such enthusiasm for years
in the good old republican party, and
"scores of honest democrats" arc
turning over to republicanism auvl
right. "While the lamp hold out to
burn," etc. tnere is a chance for our
democrat!" friends to renounce tho er
rors of days gone by. by forsaking the
democratic hh,:p Air a safer tine the
republican party. We feel revived, and
if we are not much mistaken the en
tire republican element in the whole
country is in the same condition, and
ready for the Jr.-iy that is to lead them
to vicUnv in V'vember.
