1'oiuoN , Mlnss. , November 10. The Jour
nal's special correspondent at Augusta , Maine ,
had : t long conversation with lion. James C.
Blaine on Saturday afternoon , which will
be published in to-morrow morning's ifsno of
that paper. The defeated candidate , who by
the way , appeared in the beet of health , said
that whatever might bo the final result of the
count in New York , ho had had from the first
no ether desire than that a fair count should
ba made. So far as ho was personally con
cerned , ho would ba tontuit with either vie *
toiy or defeat. Success vvouid not date him
and dtff nt would not dtpress him. Ho was
tigjgidinn congeLial and profitable work
-whim had been mtoriupted by the campaign
and the deep regret that ho would feel at a
democratic triumph would bo altogether for
his party and for his country , not tat himself.
"I livoJ too near the preudon'uy in 1SSI , " Mr.
Hlaine .uldud after n long pau o "and
hav3 too keen n Fcnso of U
burdens , its embarrassments and tin perils to
bo unduly anxious for the olhcp. " Whqn
asked how ho accounted for the closeness of
the result in Nuvv York , Mr , lilaino said :
"Well , consideriug the lum by
of tha independent republicans nnd tlio far
largei los.s from the action of the republican
prohibitionists , the wonder is at first sight
that the deir.ociats did not carry the state by
a larga majority , ns _ they confidently expecte I
thev would. This lesult was prevented by
the great accession to to the republican ranks
of Irich nud Irieh-American , voters and work-
ingina'iuen of all elates , who sustained ma be
cause of my advocacy of a protective tariff.
They believe , nnd believe wisely , that free
trrdn would reduce their wages. "
"You r-'iilly think then that you got a con-
Mdeiablo Irish vote in New York ? "
"Oh , I had thousinjs uuon thousanila , " 10-
plied Mr , IMaine , "and should have IrvJ many
more but for the inUlerant and

"Veu attribute the close vote in Now York ,

"No , not solely , " replied Mr. Blnino. "Ac

ing report of the interflow !
"You nro from Now York , Mi. Commis

These are \ory delicate questions for one in
my position to answer. 1 lia\o tnkcn to part
whatever in the Into campaign. 1 hive not
thu least right to assume to speak fur Governor
Clovolnnd or his party. Having tcted with
the republican party from it * origin I can
Inudly speak without some partybias. Never
theless , I will frankly tell you what 1 think.
We shall have nil admi istration absolutely
democratic in policy , but whether with u
member representing tl.oso without whoso
vote the democratic party would hav o failed ,
I will not guess , but the civil aoruco net will
not be repealed either at the coming session or
during this generation , Governor Cleveland
and the statesmen of his party would oppose
any attempt to repeal it. The republicans
as a body would resist and the senate would
defeat such nu attempt. The rules will not
be abolished , they will be enforced
under the now president but
not , I fear , with such enlarging
breadth of application nnd such moral sup
port from the party in power ns would have
been the case , certainly , had 1'residont Ar
thur boon re-elected nnd probably had Air.
Blaine biiccaeded , The disintoranodnois and
patriotism ol the country nro nut very un
equally divided between the great pirtipa , but
in my opinion my party 1ms micli tha larger
put of the intelligent conviction winch has
thus supported civil Rorvico reform. Great
numbers cf persons in the democratic ranks
are R > prejudiced and uniformed on tha sub
ject that th-y will clamor fur removals for the
siiUo of patrontge. They do not comprehend
that a party which could elect its candidate
only by the ail of the lepubhcan friends of re
form IMS no chance it itulicnntes those fiiend-
in the future when they nra sure to bo far
more numerous and powerful than now. They
still bnhovo in the old proHciiptivo spoils sys
tem , lint comprehending Unit it H doomed ,
nnd caring more , as do nuny republican ? , also
for n four years Saturnalia of spoils than for A great struggle
over the reform issue in the ( lemccr.itic lanks
13 therefoie certain. The statesmen of the
party , Biynrd , Pondlcton , Latnar , Gnrland ,
Carlisle , Knndall , Cox , Morrison , Tucker ,
Hewitt , Willis and others , each of whom has
already gpjkcn and voted for the civil
service act will stand by the
new president in its support : liut
in my worthy democrats and all
demagogues , spoilsmen , nnd the rabble of the
party will be against it. The republicans will
stand together lor the act tiud rules , unxiously
waiting lor the demncratu to ruin themselves
by their abrogation. Thu president will lead
thu loform element of his party , and his clear
convictions , his high BOIISU ot duty , hi * cirri-
ago , h B strength of chirocter , will so.uru vic
tory. There i i no public man in thin country
who lias n higher senuo of moral obligation
in olliual life , or who is more certain to with
stand mere partisan nnd Holfivh appeals , than
Governor Cleveland. This is thu grunt ele
ment of h H powei and hid popularity too , as
thu peop'o ' tow feel , and leat my
motives bo misnndorstoud let mo add
that ho has never done mo n favor nnd that I
vvouid luilliur i > sk nor nccept one nt his hands.
Many olhcern outside of the rules , mid Homo
within , will doubtless tie removed for no verv
good reasons , but so far ns possible Governor
Cleveland will prevent mere political pro
scription. He cannot nttonil to everything. '
Much will depend on the members of his min
uet and especially on the .postmaster general ,
If them IB , as is charged , sumo ollicers who
have used their influence to enfon.n nst.o-'s- .
menls and neglected their duties nnd violated
the pr < prietiex of their stations to cngago in
party warfare , thu fnto they liavo challenged
may very likely await them. If pcrtoiiH urn
to bo selected for public work irrespective of
politics they had butter attend to Unit woik
und not meddle with the elections.
