The Argns and the Address. « The Argus ingenuously remarks that the address of the Fifth Avenue Conference “is a severe arraignment of the men in power.” Really! The address calls for “the removal, not later than the time provided by existing law, of the cause of our redundant and irre flpoinahlfl nanan onrronnn U Tlmt von 1!Va an “arraignment” of the Ohio Democrats, who have just pledged themselves to soft money. The address declares that “the settlements of the civil war, as constitution ally fixed must be conscientiously main tained.” That reads like an “arraignment” of the Democratic White-leasuers of Mis sissippi and Louisiana, who have of late been shooting down negroes by scores, and of the Democratic orators and journals of the South for their treasonable utterances. The ad dress declares that “never before in our his tory has the public mind been so profoundly agitated by an apprehension of the dangers arising from the prevalence of corrupt ten dencies and practices in our political life.” That reads like an “arraignment” of the Con necticut Democrats for the sale of a senator ship to Mr. Barncm. The address says “the records of courts, of state legislatures, and of the national Congress speak with terrible plainness, and still they are adding to the scandalous exhibition.” That reads like an “arraignment” of the corrupt Democratic judges of Indiana, the scan dal-causing Democratic legislatures of Ohio, Missouri and Pennsylvania, the inefficient and do-nothing Democratic national House. The addiess condemns “that system which has made the offices ot government the mere spoils of party victory.” That reads like an “arraignment” of the Democratic spoils system introduced by the Democratic Jackson, practiced by every Dem ocratic administration since, and endorsed by the present Democratic House. The address declares that “the country cannot now afford to have any man elected to the presidency whose very name Is not conclusive evidence of the most uncompromising determination of the American people to make this a pure government.” That reads like an “arraign ment” of Democratic candidate Pendleton, for his questionable financial transactions. The address declares against any “candidate who, in public position, ever countenanced corrupt practices or combinations.” That reads like an “arraignment” of Democratic candidate Tilden, for his combination with Tweed and Tammany in 1808. The address protests against any candidate “however conspicuous his position or brilliant his ablli ty, in wnom tne impulses or tne party mana ger have shown themselves predominant over those of the reformer.” That reads like an “arraignment” of Democratic candidate Hendricks, trickiest of time-servers and poli ticians. The address condemns any man “who however favorably judged by his near est friends, is not publicly known to possess those qualities of mind and character which the stern task of genuine reform requires.” That reads like an “arraignment” of Demo cratic candidate Thurman, who flinched when he was called upon to choose between hard money and soft. The Argus had better read the address again and “read it slow.” Few will be so simple as to put any credit in the story which certain newspapers, noto riously addicted to untruth, are telling about Mr. Blaine. To begin with there is not a bit of testimony in substantiation of it, and to follow up, the whole story is too absurd for a moment’s credence. Who believes that the Speaker left the chair while the House was in session and when to a little back room to receive a package which could have been delivered as well elsewhere and at another time? Were Mr. Blaine the bribe-taker his enemies would have us believe he would never be so foolish as to invite detection, to needlessly place himself in the power of un known men. The Ohio Democracy. The Ohio Democrats have not, to use 1 their own expressive phrase, “gone back on I the platform of 1875.” They reiterate those absurd and nauseous sentence;, that resump tion paralyzes productive and commercial in dustries, and that the masses of the people are subjugated to the imperious sway of a money oligarchy. They declare for the un conditional repeal of the resumption act, tor the substitution of a forced currency for an optional one, and thereby a vast increase ol the national debt, for banking by the Treas ury, and they reach the climax of absurdity by protesting against any scheme of resump tion which involves either contraction of the currency or increase of the interest burden of the debt. This last plank is in effect a dec laration against resumption at any time, for that much to be desired result can only be brought about by the means which they ex pressly condemn. They fitly crown their work by endorsing as the choice of Ohio for President the most blatant repudiationist in the land, the man who calls the metallic dol lar “a barren ideality.” In only one important particular does the platform differ from the one adopted last year. Since then a new form of dishonesty, a new way to swindle the nation’s creditors, has made its appearance, and the Ohio Dem ocrats hasten to endorse it. So long as silver maintained its value as compared with gold, they were as strong in its condemnation as in that of the other metal. The silver dollar was as barren an ideality as the gold. But now that silver is greatly depreciated, now that its use affords an opportunity to cheat somebody, they call for its coinage. They cannot bring themselves to forego so tempting a chance to swindle their creditors. The silver dollar becomes a productive and ucauauiu uutuau'-y iuu muuimu, 11 is avanauio for the purposes of fraud. Those who pretend that the Ohio Democra cy last year was laboriog under a temporary delusion and that it has outgrown or forsaken its errors, will have a difficult task to de fend its action of Wednesday. It has adopted the old bad platform, incorporating in it an added form of dishonesty. It has discarded its best man and taken up an arrant dema gogue. The result is to assure the State to the Republicans, and to bring the currency question once more into the front rank of the issues to be brought out in the coming campaign. The following is a specimen of the cam paign songs which are firing the Southern heart. It appears in the New Orleans Demo crat. The author evidently has a clear com prehension of the purposes of the brevet Confederate House: “Yes, Congress is bound to fix them now, And to teach tbrm a lesson or two We’re gwine to get back the niggers they stole With this army of boys in blue. Then we’ll shont hurrah! for the Southern star, And the land ol the cotton and cane, For our y’ar of jubilo baB come. And the Gray’s on deck again.” Current Kotes. The only thing we have against Blaine is that perhaps the New York Tribune and Cincinnati Commercial will support him.— “ Elyria Republican. We don’t pretend to say just what Mr. James G. Blaine had to do with railroads, but it’s due to truth to say that he has to be convicted of any corrupt transactions con nected with them.—Philadelphia Times. The result of investigation so far has been just the reverse of what Mr, Blaine's ene mies intended it should be. In the absence of the testimony given yesterday the charge might have been repeated to the ex-SpeakePs detriment, but now that the facts are out there is not a plank left for his loes to stand upon .—Philadelphia Press. We believe the record and the principles of James G. Blaine to be as pure and as far above reproach as Mr. Bristow’*; we believe him to be a most finished practical states man, thoroughly schooled by the great teach er experience, id the knowledge that is most necessary to a president, and a man most fit ting to be placed by the suffrages of the American people in the representative office of the nation.—St Albans Advertiser. This is not a good year for the Great Un known, and Mr. Blaine may safely dismiss his apprehension* of this anonymous antago nist. The candidate of the Republican party, it is pretty certain, will not only be known, but he will be the best and most favorably known mau who bears the Republican name. If la nz-vro *1, nt U ~ ^.Sll 1.^ one of iwo such men, and that either Mr. Biaine or Mr. Bristow will lead the Republi can party to victory next fall. —St. Paul Pi oneer Press. If the Democrats had learned from the sec retary of the treasury, whom'they propose to investigate, and had conducted their investi gations with a simple and evident desire to discover actual abuses and to punish all offenders, Democrats as well as Republicans, their majority in the House would have been of the greatest service to them. But as Wil liam Godwin said of the Roman church, that it reposed in implicit confidence upon the ig norance of mankind, so it often seems that Republicans may repose with equal confi dence upon the hopeless Bourbon ism of the Democracy.—Harper's Weekly. Mr. E. H. E. Jameson, a former editorial attache of this journal, was ordained for the Baptist ministry last night under very favor able and very promising circumstances. The press is the best possible training school for the pulpit; a few years of editorial labor are better than a life-time in college to fit men for the gospel mission. We do not intend that Mr. Jameson shall be the Globe Democrat’s only contribution to the army of Christian workers, or that no sect but the Baptists shall receive the benefits of our care ful training and education. We have now in our office, on the way to speedy graduation with high honors, several young men des tined to be shining lights of the Church be fore many years .-Globe-Democrat. W~ = Centennial Echoes. The Nations Unpacking Their Trunks— A Tour of the Main Building—Porce lain and Potteries. Crepes and Camel’s Hair—A Stroll Through n Pagoda—fn. flation of Prices Ac. Ac. iUrtW ULUiPUlU) Centennial Grounds > May 14, 1876. ) Jo the Editor of the Press: Tbe greater part of three days I have spent in the Main building at tbe Centennial and as yet have not succeeded in getting anytliiug like an idea of the contents and capacities of the place. It is bewildering and tiresome in the extreme and still is a great delight, this wan dering about among tbe beauties of the New World and the Old, through a labyrinth of gorgeousness. There is much that is not done. Turkey and Portugal have not even unpacked, Russia is preparing tbe space allotcd her, the French are busy arranging their goods and planning new exhibitions, the Japanese are working with tools upon tbe wood of their buildings, tbe "sound ot hammers, blow on blow” rings through the air, and without, the fountains and general decorations are, many of them, still in an unfinished state. In some places tbe debris is not removed and lumber and plastering ex ist where they ought not, at least in the rough. Every day makes a marvelous advance, how ever, and you can see tbe improvements con stantly. Those who come to the Centennial in the fall will gain in this direction. Everything will be completed and the whole wdl stand forth in its perfection. Still there are argu" ments in favor of a visit at this season. It was fine to be here at the opening, the weather now is cool and comfortable and everything has the attraction of newness and freshness, un soiled by the summer heat and dust; and there is enough to exhaust the “mind, body and es tate” of an ordinary individual so far as sight seeing goes, as it is. To the truly patri otic soul, to the genuinely inquiring mind, to tbe devotedly American heart, it is nothing to come home from the Centennial, so wearied that rest has no perceptible effect in refreshing you, your eyes aching as if they themselves pro tested against gazing at any further display, rnur boots covered with mud, all the button, iff jour gloves, your sun-umbrella lost aud the ;loomy fact impressed upon your mlud that mu have purchased articles you didn't want, >aid an outrageous sum for them, handed in wo fifty cent notes at the entrance instead of me—in fact, wasted your substacce in riotous iving upon a diet of guide hooks and similar rash. Give yourself up to the inspiration of .he occasion. Never mind fatigue or inconve lienee. Wear an outfit that will be comforta ile aud endure hard wear. Take a lunch with mu so that you need not walk long distances n search of restaurants when yon have no time i; strength to spare. You will find it worth tuy sacrifice in the instruction and pleasure mu obtain. By all means tuck a bit of red, vbite aud blue somewhere about your dress. Che streets are hung in flags, the national col >rs are omnipresent. Two small children on ;he grounds were actually dressed in skirts of ■ed aud white stripes, and waists of bine with vbite stars. All the aristocratic poppies have t scrap of the ribbon at their collars, and in :hurcb, Sunday, across the pulpit front were klterDate lines of while pinks, and crimson kzelias with a cluster at one side of blue violets kud star flowers. . 1 really think the next best thing to travel, ng in our own country and abroad, is a tour of his main building. The leugtb of the (true ;ure is 1,880 ft. Its width 404 ft. To walk hrough all the aisles, in and out is a promen kde of 11 (eleven) miles, the regulation dis tance for soldiers in one day. There are rolling hairs pushed abont in all directions bat they kre unsatisfactory things, when you waut to investigate in an independent fashion. Of course all the exhibit! are classified, but f can’t possibly comprehend them scientifically enough to denominate them under the heads of “Raw Material,” “Textiles,” “Motors and rraosportatioo,” “Plastic and Graphic Ark” I just amuse myself by observation In an alarm ogiy unsystematic way Expect from me no aw or order, only a jump from one object of nterest to another. The granites from Maine are of solid beanty, wrought granite from Davis Tillson, Rockland, knd those from Mt. Desert and other places, there are cotton goods from our factoiies, and, ( also, in a different part of the hall did not [an 10 note a case containing "i'ingrte s artifi cial limbs.” Among tbe English and French goods the porcelains are too exquisite to be gazed upon unmoved. There are large supplies from the Lambeth potteries—such majolica ware! And in “Denmark,” the Copenhagen ware is beau* ;iful, the decoration so rich and yet delicate. A diminutive ornament for a table costs from 17 to 310, about tbe price we pay (or do net) at any jewellers for an imported vase of tbe kind, rhey will take orders here for articles, but tbe commission charged makes the sum just about equal to that asked by importers. Tbe Paris hats and dresses and gloves are very elegant, and the laces are lovely. Ah! bnt in tbe Italian departments the pink corals, the mosaics and turquoise, the carved wood and the silver filigree! Among the articles ex hibited by the “Compagnie des lndes,” the crepes and camel’s hair shawls, the cloaks and scarfs! Tbe pavilion of tbe Netherlands is elabor ately bung in maroon velvet and gold, and is very handsome outside, while within are no end of interesting products and articles of com merce. Brazil has a pagoda of wood decorated lu blue, scarlet and gold. The interior is draped in white and black tulle and covered with but terflies of dazzling brightness and variety of color, beetles, hives and Bests, leather flounces and fans, as dainty and exquisite as can be im agined,—the whole surmounted by a gay, a high-toned flamingo. So I stand, lost in admiration, listening to a concert from Gilmore’s Band and drinking in the music as a part of it all. Near by stands a cross of granite, carved at its base in callas vines and ferns, water gargling out and wet ting tbe stoue so gracefully cut, and trickling down over the lovely devices. And here is a pulpit, I don’t know how many feet high, such as they use in Roman Catholic cathedrals, carv ed in light colored wood. Angels and arch-an gels blowing their trumpets, the salats and apostles—the loveliest faces and figures—all solid carving, and I gaze and go into ecstacies over it and ask the yonng fellow having charge* in gray uniform and scarlet cap, if it is Swiss. He says he does not speak English, he speak* TTrannVi T mannna tn final nnt tViafr a# la HaI. gian work—"Chaise qui ce trouve dans l’eglise,” he tells me, and I thank him and wander on and stand listening to the voices ot Italians or Spaniards or French in conversa tion, quite near them, in the fascination of hearing a foreign tongue till I bethink my: elf whether I should like some stranger gaping at me in that interested spirit and I move away, to turn, with pleasure, to greet some Portland friend and so find myself at home once more. Since the opening, the hotels and restaurants are quite prepared to satisfy all hungry mor tals, aod we choose the Vienna oafs We order coffee, and very delicious it is. The waiters, in tbeir swallow-tail coats and white vests, could not be more polite. There follows a degree of attention unusual to frequenters of Amerioan “eating houses.” What kinds of ices?” “Cafe au glace, peach, ananas (I should say, pineapples).” We finish our iocs, and on asking the price of the lunch, coffee, rolls and ice-cream, are told “two and one-half dollars” in such winning accents and with such respect ful politeness it is impossible to be displeased. Otherwise we might have thought it high. I afterwards learned that this must have been a mistake of this one waiter’s—that the prioes there are really reasonable aod the serving and what is served is unsurpassed. Looking at a crystal chandelier I venture to guess it is worth 81000. “Add four to that, madam,” says the Englishman who is superin tending, “the value is 85000.” In the furni ture line a bedstead at 81600 and a crib at 8600 are masterpieces in their way. Curious things among the Swedish, Norwegian and Laplan die exhibits are life-size figures arranged in groups. Cue represents a dying deer, after the bunt, the family of people gathered near watching its sufferings. These figures, or ones similar, are constantly mistaken for men and women. Their hands are really shocking they are so natural; though not made of wax but some different material. The pianos on|exhibltion hold the names of a greater number of manufacturers than would ' be supposed to exist. Steinway, Chickertng, Stieff, Decker Bros. Koabe, Heppe, Emerson, Schumacker, Miller, Meyer, Weber and so on. The inevitable drumming resounds in this re gion, from ambitious musicians anxious to “show off.” Tiffany has a number of prizes in solid silver, won at various yacht races (some belonging to James Gordon Bennett) aod shooting matches, that are very beautiful. And among the wealth of silver and jewels I noticed particu larly a table of Mexican onyx, the base of i t crystal. Some verde antique is shown quarried at Harford county, Maryland. The mine is only worked to a slight depth, but wonders are an ticipated. They look forward to its surpassing the verde antiques abroad, aud they value it et $10 a cubic foot. “Egypt” has all the gorgeous trappings of their nation, and you sit down to rest npon an elegantly carpeted divan close npon a “serpent of old Nile” stretched on reeds end rnshee. On the walls of the pavilion are the words, “The oldest nation of the world sends morn ing greeting to the youngest people.” 1 tbiak by this time I mast have conveyed as hopelessly mixed up ideas ss I myself have of this gigentio main building, so I will forbear and turn my steps to-morrow in the direction of the Women’s Pavilion.
