meeting of tho general committee
of Tammany hall, John Kelly
made the following speech:
The time is rapidly approaching
when the national democratic con
vention will meet at Cincinnati,
null the political forces of the
country will soon be brought into
antagonism. Tho character of tho
nominees of the Chicago conveu-
lms already been discussed at length.
It would be unwiso to underrate
an opponent’s strength. A good
general does not ilo this. That
should be our position, and wo
should place in nomination our
strongest men. There was never a
better opportunity to elect the dem
ocratic candidate than at the corn
ing olection. It will depend en
tirely on what the democratic con
vention does. If it gives us any of.
tho candidates named here this
evening, with one exception, there
can be no question about the result.
If it gives us one man the battle is
lost before it is begun. With Sam
uel J. Tilden we cannot win. We
want a candidate whom we can
point to anil say; “Ho is an honest
man.” We want to meet lie re on
Saturday morning, the 19th inst.,
and march to the Grand Central
depot on our way to Cincinnati.
We have had a long fight, hut wo
are nearing the end. I believe that
at least one-half the anti-Tilden
delegation from this city and the
interior of the state will he admit
ted by the Cincinnati convention.
We have never joined with the re
publicans, but when we were as
sailed ditl as honest men should do,
asserted our rights and stood up
like men against the attacks of our
enemies. The Tammany organiza
tion will live when the men who
have assailed it have passed away
and have been forgotten.
Mr. Kelly explained the arrange
ments which had been made to scud
the Tammany delegation io Cin
cinnati, and said he hoped a large
crowd would go. They proposed
to go with their banners displayedj,
so that all men might see them
and follow the leader of the democ.
racy to victory.
The talent of success is nothing
more than doing what you can do
well, and doing well whatever you
do, without a thought of fame.
