Description

Introduction

There seems to be an honest difference of opinion among politicians of both parties, as to what constitutes political deviltry. As a Maine Republican as to the deviltry of his party, and before he has talked sixty seconds he will give you a complete account of all the crimes and deviltry ever committed by Democrats, from a culler of staves in a small town to the Governor last elected by the Democrats. Ask a Maine Democrat about Republican deviltry, and he will cautiously ask if you were "born a Democrat," and before he settles down to facts, he will prove that he voted for Jackson, refused to vote for Horace Greeley, and finally wind up with a confession that Republican deviltry has been offset by Democratic blunders and stupidity.

For the purpose of setting the public right on these matters, and placing the deviltry where it belongs, the author has concluded to publish some facts that are matters of history in this State.
