NEW YORK , October 3. George
William Curtis , in a letter to the sec
retary of the New York civil service
association , says : Judge Folger'a
ability and character are not in ques
tion , but hie nomination is. That
nomination was procured by the com
bined power of fraud and patronage ,
and to support it at the polls would bo
to acquiesao in fraud and patronage as
legitimate forces in a nominating con
vention. Every good citizen is bound
resist to the utmost such wrong to free
institutions and the only effectual way
in which voters can emancipate them
selves from the corrupt and debasing
rule of the machine ia to
defeat Ita candidates. I bolluvo it
will bo done decisively by the re
publican voters of Now York and
Pennsylvania at the election this
autumn. They would see their party
defeated rather than fraud and cor
ruption of patronage triumphant.
Events in both states show no graver
political peril now confronts the coun
try than complete subjugation of the
party by unscrupulous cabals which
bribe with public employment and
pay their way by filching from the
public treasury. This is an evil which
will end in violence unless conclusively
rebuked by the people at the polls ,
Cnmmonta Upon Folger'a Iiottor.
U [ > rchl DI iuUli to TIIK UKK.
NEW YOIIK , October 4. The Times
aaya : Unfortunately not oven his
( Folger's ) great ability , high character ,
good intentions nor oven reason
able assurance to make an excellent
governor , in spite of the influences
that have been enlisted in his behalf ,
hia cnndiducy cannot sufllco to
meet the one chief objection
of.thcmo who are dissatisfied , That is
fixed bayond recall in the records of
the paat. It is not in 1m power to
wipe it out. The republicans of this
State were not permitted by untram
melled choice , by free oxorcian of aol-
ogatod power , honestly and fairly executed -
cuted , to nominate their own candi
date for governor , and many of them
fool the- principle they vindicate oven
inoro important for the time being
than the excellent ideas of State and
national policy which uro urged in the
letter of acceptance.
The Evening Poet says ; Judgn
Folger'a loiter of acceptance is not a
cheerful or inspiring documei t It
could not well be under existing cir
cumstances. A man who feels him
self obliged to make an elaborate
apology to the people for being a can
didate , and who virtually asks them
for suspension of judgment as to the
conscientiousness of his conduct in
accpting the nomination , cannot bo
expected to bo quite free from certain
depression of spirits when speaking to
the public. It is the men , circum
stances and influences surrounding
him that make hu election unaccepta
ble to a largo clement in the republi
can party. The confession of his per
sonal feelings with regard to hla can
didacy , therefore , are rather calcu
lated to strengthen than weaken their
objections to him.
The Commercial Advertiser says ;
Nothing can be said hero that would
add to the strength of Mr. Folgor'a
statement. Hia dignity , frankness ,
sincerity and devotion to republican
principles speak for themselves. The
duly of republicans ia plain. Elect
the ticket , and elect it for reason *
which hixvo botn so forcibly stated in
the letter of acceptance. Thrro can bo
no turning bick or aside. The field is
before the republicans , and they wijl
bo untrue to thomsolvea and to their
great party if they do not win it.
The Evening Telegram soy : Fol-
Her is probably wrong in his estimate
of the darnago which the party would
incur by rightful declination of thia
nomination. Ho is evidently wiong
iu imagining hia pirty can bo bone-
fitted by hia nascnting to the conauin-
nmtionof an acknowledged wrong.
The Mail and Wxprcra snya : Aa
might have b on expected of so bravo
and honest a man , ho faces without
fear and handles withoiu gloves the
convention frauds that hnvo boon ao
dishonestly manipulated and mlsrop
resented in the interests of general
calumny and chaos. In the torao and
masculine- style that no fitly cornea
from a man utterly devoid of the
cowardices thnt always belong to the
weak and inaincoro pretenders , ho re
views calmly the hiotory of the frnuJp
that only affected n single matter , the
recommendation of the atato com
mittee as to the temporary chairman ,
and that did not nll'oct a einglo vote
in the convention , oven on the prelim-
i-ary nkirmish in its proceedings.
The Brooklyn Eaijlo says : Mr. Fol-
gor's letter accepting the so-calledjro-
publican nomination ia one of the
most extraordinary documents in our
political literature. Never before hai
it , to The Eaglo'n ' kuowledi/o , been
deemed necessary by a. candidate for a
great uflico to present himself an an
Apologist for acknowledged fraud in
the convention which submitted hia
name to the people , audbog the voters
to believe that , while forced by atross
of circumstances to figure an a repre
sentative of such a body , ho hud no
hand in debauching ita character.
The turn of affairs imposes upon dem
ocrats exceptional responsibility. It
is their highest duty now to BO behave
in their nominating conventiona , and
later on in the management of the
state , aa to give no republican caiuo
to regret the spirit with which ho
atruck down wrong-doora in hia own
The Brooklyn UnionArgua suyn :
The letter in which Judge Folger
accepts the republican nomination for
governor iaa manly , honcatand plainspoken -
spoken declaration of hia position in
relation to the republican party and
to the convention by which ho was
nominated and to the principles as
embodied in the platform of the con
vention. Republicans nnd all who
desire au economical , honest and vig
orous administration will find in Judge
Folgor'a letter muny reasons to make
thnm satisfied with his nomitiationand
promote hia election.
The Brooklyn Times says : Judge
Folgor occupied a column or
more which , devoted to an
apology for not declining , Is
a sorry and discouraging pro-
ludp to his statement of princlplpc. Ac
companying , the letter of declination
from Mr. Hepburn puts an additional
plaintive strain into the sad dirge over
stalwart method and mismanagement
and the fatal policy of an administra
tion that will live in history aa having
marked the "rule and ruin" era on
the records of the republican party.

Having recoiv.od no formal notice of

apparent that owing to unfortunate
circumstances that have come to light
since the adjournment of the conven

to accept its conclusions as the author

unity and harmony in the party , and
1 do not think it right to enter upon
the canvass without an earnest cll'jrt

that for the purpose attaining such
