RejwbUcan.~) The New York Sun weeps copiously every day over the nomination of Waller in Connecticut. It feels almost as bad over Waller's nomination as it docs over Cleveland's. Hear it weep this weep: But suppose that, instead of being fooled with Cleveland, Tom Waller had raised bis melodious voice at Chicago in behalf of Thomas F. Bayard or Allan G. Thurman ? We presume\ its readers will recall with what diligence the Sun knifed Bayard be- fore the Chicago Convention by digging up and reprinting his Dover speech and remarking that it would kill him; also with what solemnity it dismissed the claim of Thurman on the ground that he came from an October State. The Sun, in short, killed off all the candidates with the great- est coolness, except Daroa, Butler and Flower, not one of whom had a vote at Chicago. This was, of course, in the opin- ion of the Sun, the misfortuneof the party, but this remains to be seed. The truth seems to be that Dana was so puffed up with the idea \ that he might, possibly, get the nomination at Chicago, his name having been mentioned in one or two obscure newspape;s, with others, as men from whorn Democrats could choose a candidate, that the Sun, at once, began to write down oil the others. It has be- come perfectly evident that they could not have nominated any one but Dana whom the Sun would have supported ; although it had, distinctly, pledged itself, to support the ticket the convention should nominate! His vanity was such thatXjw Falstaff al- leged of sighing and grief, it blew him up like a bladder; and he was, equally with him, ready to affirm \there live not three good men imhangcd in (the republic); and one of them is fat and grows old.\ We had not supposed it possible that the mere vanity of ambition had so possessed the mind of the editor of the Sun, and have so expressed ouraelf, but later develop- ments compel the belief either \that last infirmity of noble mind,\ the love of fame, flattery and unwarranted ambition, has wholly possessed and misled him, or cor- ruption, the mere craving for wealth has so possessed him that he hus Imbibed the sordid philosopy of the author of Don Juan:— \ \So for R good old-gentlemanly vice,\ I thiuk I must take up with avarice.* 1 There is no other obvious reason to ac- count for the tergiversation or eccentricity of the Sun than to attribute it to its disap- pointed ambition or to corruption. Nei- ther are honorable to its sagacity or pru- dence. Ifc^iaft erected un insuperable bar- rier to any Jiigh political aggrandizement, for a new and unacknowledged convert, nor a traitor or recalcitrant, will be held in honor or trusted by any political party.— ; 8o true it is that while men may \love the treason\ they will, inevitably, despise or \hate the traitor.\ If -it has trafficked, or thought to have trafficked, (and its course is hardly susceptible of any other solution) in the unhallowed resources of political corruption, its influence, its reliability, its value even as a neutral Journal is gone and it will hereafter be deemed, by all ear- nest, honorable men, as a mere mercenary, without honor,-without principle, false treacherous and mean. Judge Folgcr, Secretary of the Treasury in the present administration, died at hit* homo, in Geneva, on the 4th inst. The Secretary hud returned from Wash- ington, well worn out with his constant labor in his.dcpartmeut, find for a short respite, on the SOUi'ult.' He counselled his family physician and'was under liii care, but continued to answer important letters and telegrams until tlte 8d inst.— His two daughters wcro absent, one In the Adirondacks, and the othpr, we bcileve,in Albany awaiting her return, and \his eon, Captain Folger, was at Alexandria, Va., but had not been specially summoned, as - they were expected in a siiort time, and immediate danger was not apprehended. It was known he had had hemorrhage of the lungs three or four times, but the phy- \• sician also found feebleness of action of the heart and a diseased state of the liver. Withal it was evident he had worked too hard. % , The President, at Newport, R. I., was II at once informed of the death of Judge || Foiger by telegraph. The great mistake of Judge Folger's life was resigning the Chief Justiceship of the || CQUI* of Appeal, a poai^iou his eminent \ abilities and d ignWed tearing fitted him to fill and adorn, arid accepting the office of Secretary of the Treasury. It is said he had an abiding ambition to become Gov- ernor of New York, and perhaps even for higher preferment. If that [were so fco but exhibited another instance of \Vaulting ambition, whicho'erleapsitself, Aid falls on the other\ side. He Was quite obviously; not \of (the) sterner stuff\ of which \ambition should be. made\; for it is thought, his defeat when running for Governor, after tils ap- pointment to his Cabinet position.weighed heavily upon his mind and fed and fostered the disease which over-work and official anxiety greatly aided in his taking off. It is said Mir. Blaine did not vote on the prohibitory amendment. The amendment is to prohibit the making or sale of ale, lager, etc: in the state and is reported to have been carried by 40,000 or 60,000 ma- jority. The manufacture of whiskey has been heretofore prohibited. Blaine has been the leading figure in the politics of the state for many years, and prohibition has been a most important element, of whi<;h he and his party have availed them- selves when possible. He is know ton be prohibitionist inM.aino,buthis candidacy uowi extends outside of that state and, it is believed, two or throe western states will be dontrolled by the vote of thoBe who oppose the prohibition ofiale and beer.— Under such circumstances lie has not \the courage of his convictiorii !\ He dodges 1 A proper candidate for President that dare not vote his principles ! It is aconfetsion that he has no principles \to speak of,f or hat are not marketable. * Returns from all the townB show the Republican majority in VermonJ,, on Gov- ernor, to be 21,418. This ia a reduction of he majority of 1880 «f 4,628. Vermont's Republican majorities, in presidential ycart, hitherto, Hiaa been, in I860, 28,44?; 360, 24,772 ; in 1864, 29,098 \ > 1868, 32,122; in 1872,29,961; in 1876, 28,888; in 1880, 26,036. It is claimed by the Blaine Republicans that the falling off in the Republican vote about 12 per cent.; and falling off in the emocratic vote is about 6$perjeent. The Republican ticket was an Exception- ally strong one,; the Governor being re- nominated and his administration having given general satisfaction ; and a despair- ing effort was made to render the election, the first state election after the Presiden- tial nominations, a \telling\ one on the pending canvass. The independent Re- lublicans and particular friends of Sena- tor Edmunds, whose predilection for their party is very strong, and for the state Lominees, their special party friends and •ssociates, over powering,but who cannot smother their conscience and vote for a ickstcring demagogue, however \mag- netic\ and \brilliant\ in personality, are yet to show their individuality and give emphasis to their patriotism. It is thbught the majority for Blaine will be considerably Another bank failure, and most disas- trous, financially and personally, in herald- ed from New Brunswick, N. J. A. few da> sago the cashier of the National Bank of New Jersey, who was also Clerk of the county, from both of which lie was re- ceiving from 7 to 10,000 dollars a year, was found dead in his room, asphyxiated with the gas from two or three burners, Inch he had turned on. The suspicion of his suicide led to in- vestigation of the affairs of the Bank, which ho had almost exclusively conduct- ed ; and it was found that he had, by his speculations wasted the assets of the Bank and the funds of depositors to the amount if over a quarter of a million of dollars. The ruin is widespread and agonizing. The President of the Bank, a victim, and to some extent a confederate, on learning something of the state of affairs, enough to show his own ruin and suspected com- plicity in some of the speculations, retired to the water-closet and cut his own throat. A depositor in the Bank, made, desperate by his losses, has also committed suicide.' The greatest excitement and consternation exists in Die city ; and the distress brought l.o the homes of the trusting and swindled cannot be estimated, nor can it be over- itcd. Last reports give hope depositors may be paid. The district leaders of Tammany Hall held a meeting or conference, on Saturday evening last, and appointed a committee to prepare resolutions endorsing Cleveland and Hendricks and to report to the gefaer- al committee on Friday evening. From the tenor of the remarks made it Is cOnfl- lenlly believed that Tammany will fblly mid frankly support the ticket, witU the exception, perhaps of Grady and possibly a very few others, who will thus with- draw from the organization. It is ceiitain Kelly advlBcs and, sustained such course. It was announced on the 5th inst., that the canvass in Maine state election- wpuld close on Saturday, and that the Republi- cans expected to re-elect Gov. Robie by L majority of 10,000. They have heretofore claimed, while the claim couWtiave any effect in Maine itself, thiUthey'wduldhave twice that and more. On the oilier hand Democrats claim that anything' less than ,20,000 will be a decided advantage for them. They have made no'spcclal effort whllo the Republicans have made every possible exertion, having had k .dozen or more speakers from outside the Mate, and orated in nearly every school «dtttrlct.

The venerable Hannibal Hamlin, as well informed as most men and more honest in expressing his opinions and methods than most, claimed about 25,000, before the election; and Democrats claimed that a majority of less than 80,000 for republican ticket now, would be a substantial victory, or At least afford substantial encouragement to the Democracy. From republican sources we learn they now claim but 17,000. We be- lleve it will be less than this. AN APPEAL TO THE DEAD. Ohio's Republicans Ask Help of Lot X. Indignant Reply of the Widow—What the Deceased Statesman Thought of James O. Blaine—A Carious Chapter of Politioal History. [By Telegraph to the Herald.] ATJQOSTA, Me., Sept. 8,188*.—The late Senator Lot M. Morrill, of Maine, repre- sented the purest and best methods in poli- tics, as his successor, James G. Blaine, re- presents the worst. The clear facts of Blaine's ten years' leadership of the party in Maine leaves no doubt on that point.— When Senator Morrill resigned the Sena- torship to accept the Treasury portfolio under Grant, as will be remembered, Mr. Blaine was appointed his successor. Sen- ator Morrill died here eighteen months ago. His widow, who la the daughter of the late Mr. Vance, who in his day was one of the most prominent citizenB of this section, lives in a pleasant home on Winthrop street, this city. She is a lady evidently of great force of character and was the valued as- sociate, confidant and helpmate of her dis- tinguished husband, both in the Executive Mansion of this State and during the many years of his residence at Washington as Senator and Secretary of the Treasury. MrB. Morrill was recently surprised to receive from Ohio an official letter directed to her late husband. Opening it she found it to be a very importunate appeal to Sen- ator Morrill to visit Ohio and to lend his aid in Baving the State to Mr. Blaine. Mrs. Morrill turned the sheet over and wrote on its back an indignant reply and mailed it forthwith to the gentleman who had signed the appeal. MRS. MOBBILL'8 STATEMENT. The Herald correspondent called on Mrs. Morrill at her residence this evening. She is Btill tn deep mourning, and consented to receive the visit with great reluctance, but she said that the exigency created by Mr. Blaine's nomination is so important tnat she was convinced all private feelings should be subordinate to it. As her hus- band had been one of the moat distinguish- ed, loyal and 4 upright members of the re- publican party, as he had assisted in its formation, had been one of its first Gover- nors elected in this State and held its tra- ditions and its principles faithfully until his last conscious moment; she knew that if alive to-day to-day he would feel that it was disgraced by the nomination of Mr. Blaine as its candidate for President, and that it had let go of all that made its ex- istence necessary to the country. THE DEAD BTATKBMAS'S PREDICTION. \When Garfleld was nominated,\ Baid Mrs. Morrill, \he said to me, sadly and seriously, 'My dear, the republican candi- date will be elected this time; but, unless new methods are UBed in the party and new and better men become its leaders, he will be the last one. You will live to see a democrat elected four years hence. I will not.' My husband,\ continued Mrs. Mor- rill, \died of his devotion to the party of which he thus BO sadly spoke. It is un- questioned that the breaking down of his health dated from his, perhaps, too faith- ful performance of his duties in the Treas- ury Department.\ THE OHIO LETTER. To a question of the Herald correspon- dent as to the Ohio letter, Mrs. !Morrill said:- ' 'Some six weeks ago I received a letter from Columbus, Ohio, on a sheet with printed head representing some political organization. I was BO surprised and in- dignant at its contents that I did not par- ticularly notice whether it was from a State committee, a county committee or Borne political club, but it was signed by a Mr. Brown, as chairman, and a Mr. Ogden as secretary. It was, as well as I can re- member it, about as follows:— Senator LOT M. MORBILL:— DEAR SIR—The situation in Ohio ii critical one. The party is In trouble on account of the attacks on Mr. Blaine as the candidate of the party. Your well known character as a pure and up- right statesman, and coming from Blaine's own state, you could refute the charges as no one else can. We hope you will come to us in this emergency, andmakens many speeches as possible. REPLY OF MBS. MOBBILL. \I was indignant and amazed that any republican should be ignorant that my husband was dead. I was more indignant that he should be asked to assist ia making Mr. Blaine President. I at once sat dowi and wrote on the back of the sheet this reply, as near as I can rdfccmber it. I now sorry that I did not keep copies of both the letter and of my answer!— To BBOWN, Chairman, Columbus, Ohio:— I am surprised and shocked to receive tuch a communication. I thought every citizen of this country knew my husband was at rest. I am In mourning for him, but, as much as I mourn his death, I thank my Father in heaven that He called hi: home before the party he loved so Iwell and did so much for had so disgraced it- self as to nominate so wicked and corrupt a man for the highest office within the gift Of the American people, as I know and my husband know James G. Blaind to be. If he were alive he wpuld not support Mr. Blaine or any such 1 man, even at the bid- ding of his party. ; ' CHARLOTTE MORRILL. HOW BLAINE WAS SAVED. '•My husband,\ continued Mrs. Morrill, \was visited by Mr. Blaine at the begin- ning of the Congressional investigation into the Little Rock Railroad bonds. Mr. Blaine, as he did to Mulligan, Importuned my husband with tears and entreaties to use his influence to save him. When my husband resigned to go into the CabinSt it was generally understood,and my husband so understood, that Governor Chamberlain would be appointed to fill the vacancy.— Instead, and to the surprise of every one, Governor Connor appointed \Mr. Blaine, then a representative In Congress and un. der charges in that body, to the vacancy. As Mrs. Morrill intimated, the appoint. mentofMr. Blaine to'the vacancy was evidently to save him from the further in. vestigalion and the inevitable Incriminat- ing verdict of the committee. Governor Connor had his reward. Be-lsftowPen. stonAgenf tor this State, the fa*$ pfttoe Pastnr Without Butter. ' ; The American pie has been subjected to more unjust abuse from foreign writers than any other of our distinctive product i, if we except the recent tirade against tl e American hog. And yet we cannot say that it has been altogether underserved, because of the villainous compound.thick, hard, and heavy, that is too often made to do duty as a \ crust,\ and which by cour- tesy is called \pastry.\ Llghi tender, flaky, and digestible pie-crust and all kinds of pastry can be made most readily by the use of Royal Baking Powder with- out any butter, or with half the usual por- tion, if preferred, or with a small quantity of lard or other shortening as desired. Pie-crust thus made is much more .wholes- some and digestible, besides being more economical and easier prepared. In ad- dition to saving all the butter if desired, one-third the flour is also dispensed with, as the crust is rolled that much thinner, the leavening qualities of the Royal Bak- ing Powder swelling it to the requisite thickness. If drippings or lard be used the Royal Baking Powder removes any unpleasant taste, rendering the cruBt as short, sweet and pleasant as if made from the finest butter. Those who know the appetizing qualities of the genuine home- made American pie will rejoice that by the aid of Royal Baking Powder in the pastry it can be made quite as digestible as it is delicious.

The candidate of ihe Republican party seems to be peculiarly unfortunale in the selection of the newspaper* wjBoh advo- cate bis election. If you scratch a Blaine organ you will surely discover a \rat\ sheet.. Every one of the leading news, papers which support his candidacy re- fuses to pay a fair day's •wages for a fatf day's work, and every one of them is a bitter and unrelenting foe of Organized Labor, and seizes upon every opportunity to insult it. Here is a partial list: New York Tribune. .» New York Extra ^Tribune)] . New York Commercial Adeftiser. New York Mail and Express. Utica Herald. > Troy Times. j Buffalo Commercial. I Albany Journal. i ~ Philadelphia Press. l : Newark Advertiser. It will be noticed, also, thai they are all Protectionist organs. Thev clamor loudly for protection to American industry, but in practice they endeavor to , degrade the American workingman to the condition of the pauper laborer of Europe. They will not allow a trade unionist to nrork in their offices, and it is for that reason that the trade unionists are boycottin their candi- date. Hoar's Morality. Mr. Hoar, of Massachusetts, says, \ We will vote for no corrupt or unclean man for President,\ and General Butler's advo- cate says, \ There can be no safer rule.\ But how can a falsehood be the basis of a safe rule? Hoar will vote for Blaine, and Blaine is a corrupt and unclean man. Therefore what Hoar says is false; and a rule based upon such a flagrant piece of mendacity is a thing over which the But- ler men should think Iwice. What if it tempt them toward the abysB ! \ A a Oligarchy or Offloe-holders.' The broad and emphatic meaning which is the foundation of this year's Presidential contest has not been elsewhere so vigor- ously and tersely expressed as at Bar Har- bor in the interview with General McClel- lan by a Herald correspondent, which we print to-day. The nature of this under- current of public feeling, ite intensity, and its direction against the political methods and processes represented by Mr. Blaine, are here considered with direct reference to the vote which they are certain to call out in November. Says General McUlel- lan:— This contest is the mighty and, I firmly believe the crucial effort of the honest, the self-respecting, the patriotic classes of this people to overthrow an oligarchy of office- holders which, in all .its tendencies and manifestations, Is unrepublican—is fatal to the permanence of republican institutions. Therefore we have ranged with us the best elements in the republican party. Therefore we have ranged against us the worst elements of our own party. This is the secret of the devotion and loyalty of independent republicans and democrats alike—devotion to the principle of integrity, without which the Republic cannot exist; loyalty to the man who best represents this principle and can most surely defeat, for that very reason, the \oligarchy of office-holders.\— The Herald. George Campbell, HopkinsvUle, Ky., says: Burdock Blood Bitters is the best preparation for the Blood and Stomach ever manufactured. New York Germans for Cleveland. [Saratoga Letter to Cincinnati Enquirer.'] Before I left Saratoga I found reasons to doubt whether the outward aspects in favor of Blaine are borne out by the more tquiot and internal currents. Meeting a prominent brewer of New York, whose finances are sound and whose employees are numerous, I drew him aside and asked him to tell me about the attitude of the Germans in New York City. He refused for a few minutes to speak on politics at all. Finally said he: \The Germans are going for Cleveland.\ \How many of them ?\ , \Seventy-five per cent, at least, and probably 00 per cent.\ \Are you for Cleveland?\ \Yes.\ \Why are you for Cleveland?\ \Because I want a change.\ \Have you not been prospering under the present condition of politics?\ \Yrs but I might prosper more; the times have been hard for two or three years. We are down to bed-rock. I am in favor of getting down to bed-rock still more. I believe that the Republican party is corrupt all through, and that we want more water squeezed out of these railroad corporations so that a man can be more certain when he puts his savings away or deposits his money in bank that the mon- ey will be found there. What has been taking place in New York City for the lost four months has made us very uncertain about the fiscal institutions which handle our checks and balances.\ , Bald I s \Don't you know! any Germans who are in favor of Blaine ?\ \None.\ [ \Are there no German newspapers In New York which advocate Blaine?^ \If there are I do not know them.\ \Are you so settled in your resolution to support Cleveland that you are not li- able to change in the next two months ?\ \No I have kept quiet. I mean to koej quiet for a while longer; but I will spenc my money for Cleveland.

What Is Morality 1 The word \ moral\ seems to have been sadly twisted hi the AmericaV vocabulary. About nineteen-twentieths of our talented people seem to hate Imbibed the idea that In order to be \immoral\ a man must have some sdrt of irregular relation with a woman. If' a play be pre- sented upon the American stage with a bold thief for a hero it will probably not occur to anybody that it is an \Immoral\ exhibition, though some newspaper critic may advance to the point of speaking of A \ demoralizing.\ If the heroine should be an adulteress, however, or the hero a seducer, the cry will at once go up; \The play is shockingly Immoral.\ A Frenchman discovered this peculiarity in the Anglo-Saxon race many years ago. In our political world this singular ob- tuseness has manifested itself in an emi- nent degree of late. An office-holder may prostitute bis position to private gain, but nobody can be found to say that his morals are bad. A man may take money which belongs to another, but the com- munity will be amused if told that this tliief is an immoral person. A man oc- cupying the Chair of the National House of Representatives, may write a letter to the chief of a great railway enterprise de- manding a \ whack\ for services rendered of a legislative character, and yet it does not occur to the great Amerlcan'public that this man's morals are questionable. He may go into political life a poor: and he may amass a fortune in transac- tions in which he trades his \influence without In the least having his morals questioned by a great many people who would be shocked if they heard that he had been out carriage riding In his bache- lor dayB with a female with a shady repu- tation. We have in this country an alleg- ed political party of \Great Moral Ideas.\ It UBed to preach the doctrine that slavery was immoral, and It now holds 1 to the be- lief that beer-drinking Is slightly liable to the same objection, but, as a rale, its code pertains only to the relations of the sexes. A man is \ moral\ if he is chaste. He may be a bank-robber, a for- ger, a swindler and a hypocrite and still be \moral.\ But woe betide him If he has permitted his affections to wander ir- regularly! Perhaps we are coming to be a nation of hypocrites and Pharisees 1 VIEWING TH8 MACHINERY.
