EVOLUTION IN POLITICS.
Everyb dy in Kansas but the Demo
crats will have cause enough lor thanks
giving on the 27th hist especially the
Republicans and Alliance; the latter that
the former is brought to repontance, and
the former that tho latter gave them
another chance to repent.
The statement in yesterday's dispatches I
We find the following in the Boston
Herald: 'The report than the father of
Senator Ingalls, who lives in Haverliill,
will vote the Democratic ticket, indicates
that it isn't alone the sons of the fathers
that are kicking over the political traces.
It is likewise the lathers of the sons."
This calls to mind an incident that is
said to have occurred in Boston a short
time ago. A staunch old Republican of
the old school, who left that state sev
eral years ago, had just returned on a
vibit, and in speaking of the iolitical
preferment of the younger generation of
the Hoars, the Russells, the Everetts, et
al., remarked the faithfulness of the
scions of tho founders and life-long lead
ers of the grand old party, when a friend
present disj)elled the old man's illusion
by informing him that every one of
these were now rampant Democrats.
Another instance almost equal to the
first one mentioned, and in the samo
line, is presented in this state in tho case
of tho Rices, ather and sou, of Fort

The bureau of statistics has just pub
lished a statement on immigration which
is calculated , to make the patriotic
citizen of this" country scratch his head in
d- ep mathematical thought. During the
month of September, 1890, tho arrivals
of Italians in this country numbered
3,20.1, against only 1,776 in September,
1889, and during the nine months ending
with September 30 the immigrants from
that land aggregated no fewer than
10,713, against but 20,118 in the corre
sp mding period of last year.
A similar avalanche of Poles has open
ed on this doomed land. Tho arrivals
from January 1 to September 30 were
14,821 against only 3,887 in the same
months of 1889. Tho Hungarians this
3ear 6end a delegation 17,777 strong, as
against 10,111 during tho samo months
of last year; tho Bohemian figures aro
.1,421 and 2,070; and the Russians, 32,300
in the first nine months of 1890, against
27,210 in tho same months of 1S89.
Hero is a grand total in only a out
three-quarters of a single year of nearly
118,000 human lx?ings dumped, in all
their ignorance, squalor and depravity
in the United States. It is idle to mince
matters when dealing with this offal
from the most backward nations of the
continent. They aro no acquisition.
"The asylum for the oppressed of every
clime" has been suicidally overworked
by tho leniency of our laws, and wo

In fact, we see it now in the heavily
populated centers of the cast. This
foreign scum is converted into citizen
ship on short notice by political heelers
and peelers. No law seems able to cope
with the national calamity. The ballot,
that palladium and safeguard of tho

political cliques and their imported
drovos of allies.
These figures are simply startling.
Most of these alleged human beings are
not only the offscouring of the races

clannish ignorance and besotted eninity
to progress of even' kind that genera

menace to enlightened strength of Re

MORE FIGURES TO STUDY.
From tlw AUIiimjii Patriot.
The more the Kansas Democrat looks
into the political looking glass, the less
he sees of himself. Ho knows that lie
has cast 11.1.000 votes; ho knows he only
cast about 30,000 last Tuesday. There
fore he naturally asks himself, "what
has become of meV Where did his
8-1,000 votes go? He knows they did't go
to the Republicans, therefore they must
have gone to the Alliance. And as the.
Alliance cast about i00,000 votos; ho
knows he must have furnished four
fifths of its total. The Alliance has
given the Republicans a devil of a lick
ing, but Lord, how it has annihilated the
Democrats! The Republican falling off
is easily explained. Count the 50,000
votes that have left the state, mostly Re
publicans from the western counties and
add to that loss the 30.000 Republi
can resubmission votes and
you hae it. The fact is, and
tho figures prove it that tho Republicans
were quite loyal to their ticket, while
the Democrats abandoned theirs to vote
the Alliance ticket.
Let us look at it another way: Two
years ago the Republicans cast" 1S0.000
votes, the Democrats 107.000. Deduct
the loss on total vote of .10,000 in the pro
portion of 3o.000 Republicans to 1.1,000
Democrats, and we have left 145,000 Re
publicans and 92,000 Democratic votes.
Now deduct from the Republican vote
tno JO.uuuitepuhlican resubmission votes,
aud add to the Democratic vote and we
have this result: Republican vote. 115,
000; Democratic, 122,000; Democratic
majority, 7,000. Our eastwhile Demo
cratic brethren had only to remain true
to their party this year to have won a
glo.ious victory, as tho Democrats
everywhere else have done.

Kansas City Star: Senator Ingalls calls
his new home "Oak Ridge," a name sug
gested by the oak trees which grow about
his imposing mansion. It is reached by
winding up a toilsome slope through a
series of unsightly streets, but the emi
nence once gained, the labor of attaining
it i3 forgotten. Barring the approach,
"Oak Ridge" is an ideal spot. It com
mands a full view of the city below, and
the sounds from the distant busy streets
come mellowed to the clear, pure heights
above them. The river is visible to the
northeast, while the eye takes in a stretch
of charming scenery to the south and west,
embracing the senator's jack oak farm
about a half mile distant, which he calls
his play ground. The inclosure about the
house takes in five acres, including a beau
tiful lawn, an orchard, a paddock and an
inviting little grove. The house is capa
cious, well planned and furnished with ex
cellent taste. An ample hall conveys an
impression of comfort, which is accentu
ated by an introduction to the living apart
nieuts. The senator's library is attractive
in the highest degree, and reflects in a
striking degree the personality of the
owner. It is a cozy nook, with a big, open
fireplace, plenty of easy chairs, and an
abundance of rare and interesting books.
A big dek occupies one corner of the
room, at which the senator puts in much
of his time when he is at home and is not
engaged with visitors. He seems to take
the greatest possible delight in his home,
and is doubtful if there is a man in Kansas
today who is more self-poised over the po
litical situation iu Kansas than the pictur
esque statesman of Oak Ridge, against
whom the opposition to the Republican
party has concentrated all of its hostile energy-
