The contrast between the Republican and Democratic parties is strikingly emphasized in the manner of conducting investigations and treating public men whose characters have been attacked. The same committee who investigated the charges against Bel knap are now investigating the charges against Mr. Kerr. In the first case the Democratic members held meetings and took testimony in secret and without giving notice to their Republican colleagues. In the present case the Republican members brought the entire matter to the attention of their Democratic colleagues before examining any witnesses. In the first case the committee brought in resolutions of impeachment on the uncorrob orated evidence of one man, and he an ac complice, no documentary proofs of the re ceipt of money having then been obtained. The evidence against Mr. Kerr is of precisely the same character, and yet no disposition is manifested to hasten judgment against him. The Speaker has been treated with far more consideration than has any Republican who has been a subject of investigation this winter. The charges against him rest on incomparably stronger basis than those made against Messrs. Blaine, Bristow, Morton and other Republicans. The evidence against him is explicit and direct. The evidence agaiust them was made up of surmises. On the strength of these surmises Democratic journals pronounced them guilty. In the face ot strong evidence of guilt Republican journals hesitate to pass judgment upon Mr. Kerr. The contrast is marked. That the integrity of Mr. Kerr has even fallen under suspicion is the fault of the Democrats. A year ago the charges against him would not have been listened to. But the Democrats have contrived to throw dis credit upon every man in public position, have by their magnification of trivial charges raised a presumption of guilt against every public servant, and thus have made an inves tigation necessary. They have examined into charges far less plausible when made against Republicans, and so they are obliged to take up the charges against the Speaker. Should he be disgraced they have only them selves to blame. The Republicans are anx ious to do him justice. Old Issues. Democratic leaders and journals are renew, ing the accusation that the Republican party is bent on reviving the issues of the war The accusation is far from the truth. The Republican parly has no desire to fight its old battles over again, but it Is interested to preserve all that was gained by its victories. It attempts to revive no dead issues, bnt it does not hold itself to account because cer tain issues still confront it which the South will not let die. It would be very glad to re move all causes of distrust against the South if only the South would permit them to be removed. A year ago it seemed as though the long wished for reconciliation had taken place. Bat this year there has been in Con gress and elsewhere so unmistakable an out break of the old Confederate spirit that the feeling of mistrust in the North has revived. The recent occurances in Louisiana and Miss issippi have made it evident that the South ern people do not heartily accept the consti tutional amendments and that they still deny civil equality to the black man. It is their purpose sometimes avowed, again only hinted at, to reduce him to a condition of vassalage. To effect this purpose they have in a body allied themselves with the Demo cratic party—not because of sympathy with its principles iu regard to currency, or tariff, or taxation, for it has none, but because of its attitude during the war and because of its position with reference to questions grow ing out of the war. Thus it makes the old —. issues prominent again and forces them npon the attention of the Republicans. The Re publican party cannot refuse the challenge, and thus it happens this year that the fight is on the old battlefield. It isolated that the anti-Catholic secret and somewhat mysterious society known as the “O. A. U.” has recently organized on a national basis at a meeting of the representa tives of twenty-oue state bodies at Phila delphia. The national organization is known as the ‘‘Grand Council of the American League.” A committee to call a c inference at Philadelphia July 19th to acton the nomi nations for President and Vice President w.™ appointed. It is also stated that representa tives of the Order will go to Cincinnati and St. Louis in the interest of the League. A former major-general in the late war was elected President of the League, and an ad dress was delivered by a prominent ex-gov ernor, and it was voted to issue an address to the people. The new Sultan of Turkey, Mohammed Murad, son of Abdul Medjid, a nephew 0( the deposed monarch, is believed to be Iden tified with the party which has advocated the summary putting down of the rebellion in the northern provinces and which is bitterly hostile to interference by outside powers. His accession will be very likely to hasten the catastrophe which his supporters dread. About Blaine. We have from time to time given what ap-' peared to us to be very substantial reasons for not selecting Mr. Blaine as the candidate of the Republican party for President. They may be all summed up in the statement that it would not be the best thing for the country or for the party, and at this time both are in a condition calling for the very best and wis» est treatment. While we can give reasons, which seem to us quite conclusive, lor not re garding the nomination of Mr. Blaine as the best thing for the country or for the party, we see no occasion to alter our opinion, ex' pressed at the outset of the canvass, that he is an able and brilliant man and an honest and honorable one. We deprecate the nu merous petty attacks which have been made upon him, because there appears to be no substantial ground for them and because they never had for their purpose the exposure of actual corruption and the purification of po litical life, but were intended solely to injure his character in the estimation of the people and prevent his nomination, without regard to truth or justice. If Mr. Blaine could be shown to be dishonest or corrupt the people ought to know it, and it would be in itself an all-sufficient objection to his nomination, but these attacks, which have been made with poisoned arrows from the ambuscade of his political enemies, have not been charges of corrupt conduct sapported by evidence, but innuendoes and inferences based upon alleged transactions which were not in themselves wrong -and which have never been traced clearly to any wiong doing.—Boston Globe. Some of the arguments invented by the anti-Blaine papers are • very ingenious, the last especially. They say: ‘‘We suspect Mr. Blaine of dishonest dealings in railroad bonds* To be sure, after several vigorous attempts v* oucjnviuua, w C have failed badly. Our witnesses wouldn’t come to time, and our facts didn’t turn out what we expected. But still we are resolved tc keep on suspecting him, and it wouldn’t do for the Republican party to nominate a man who is under suspicion. By our accu sations we have also several times forced him to make explanations.” To allow the fact of a man’s having been unjustly accused to be an argument against him. would be to put a premium on libel. In these days of “inde pendent” journalism it is an Impossibility to find a public man who has not been accused of something. The only question which in terests the public is whether the accusations are true, and when they are proved untrue, as they have been in Mr. Blaine’s case, the effect of the false charge with every honora ble mind is not to leave a vague haze of sus picion, but to arouse an indignant sympathy for the sufferer. The country has carefully followed the charges against Mr. Blaine and knows them to have been fully exploded In an investigation conducted by bis enemies* <»|JU IUC 3v tCU tlCiCgailUIJS UI liftSb Wednesday are the popular response to the slanderers. The complaint that Blaine is “continually explaining,” comes with pecu liar grace from those papers whose constantly new libels call for daily repeated explanations. Stop throwing mud, and he will no doubt stop scraping it off.—Springfield Union. Wbat is this terrible new charge against Mr. Blaine? Nearly six years ago he In formed a friend in Boston of a chance to buy an important interest in the Northern Pacific railroad. He could not touch it himself, and said so; but he could control its allotment. The offer was accepted, and Mr. Blaine gave a receipt for the money; $2.5,000. It turned out that he could not control the allotment, the bargain was broken off, and the money was returned with interest. These are facts, we presume. Will somebody tell us wherein the wrong of the transaction lies? Is It sup posed that Mr. Blaine himself had interest In the road which he offered to sell to Mr. Fish er? The fact that after selling he could not deliver proves that he did not have the inter est. Or is it supposed that Mr. Blaine sold his official influence for the privilege of allot iug this right to one-eighth of one twenty fourth part of the road ? How very strange then that a man of Mr. Blaine’s admitted political shrewdness should offer it to a gen tleman wholly unknown in political life! Whether this new assault will be any more injurious to Mr. Blaine than former ones have been, we do not know. We are sure that unless there is something more in the transaction than is disclosed by the published correspondence, and we do not believe there is, it ought to have no effect at all. On the surface the affair was merely a friendly act by Mr. Blaine, involving obligations upon no body, and as legitimate as it would be for one man to inform a friend with capital of a good mortgage. The attitude of Mr. Adams is not easily understood. If there was any wrong in the transaction he shared it, and when he publishes his insinuations against Mr. Blaine he attacks himselt also. We trust that if anybody knows any “bottom facts” that are not told in Mr. Blaine’s statement, he will make them public at once.—Boston Advertiser.
