A very pretty quarrclt is brewing
among tlio Republican leaders.
President Arthur’s friends lire try
ing to have him elected Senator
from New York, to succeed Sen-
Laplmtn, und Mr. Blaine’s
friends, it is alleged, are d i ig all
they euu to defeat the President’s
ambition. It is the old light be-
tween the hnif-breods ami the stal
warts revived. The Blaine faction
say that the President ami his Cab-
iuet did not exert themselves to
secure the election of .Mr. Biniue,
und that, therefore, Mr, Blaine’s
friends ought not to help elect tliu
President Senator. .Mr. Jones,
the Chairman of the Republican
national Committee, made seine,
pretty bold statements about the
iuditferunce displayed by tlio Pres
ident and his Cabinet during the
late campaign. Secretary Chand
ler retorted and hit Chairman
Jones sumo hard blows, lie in
timated that if there .was a desire
for a (action light ill the, party .ft
would bo had without much trouble
He told Mr. Jones that as h*f led'
tlio party to ddfentin tlio Hesitleii-
tialcontest it would -be more |je-
coming in him to keep quiet. Of
course there is more or less crim
ination and recrimination. Blaine's
managers arc now told that if
they had spent in New York the
t'JO.GOU which they threw away on
Butler Mr. Blaine would liave been
elected. If this quarrel continues
and it ioo|js very much as if it
would, sonic interesting party se
crcts may bo nmdo public. A
hitter feeling is bcghining to show
its self among file less prominent
leaders. The Democrats can afford
to watch this faction fight with
satisfaction, because it promises to
assume such proportions ns to in
sure them tho Btate in the next
Gubernatorial contest. In the
meantime the President’s prospects
