7o'f'ph L. Stickuey in an article
"With Dewey in Manila" for Har
pert. Monthly says that the cnueo
of Dewey's withdrawal "for
broakfabt" was that tho fleet was
ehor of ammunition, also
that tho commodore was seasick
during the fight. Viewing the
work doao under theso conditions,
one s inclined to wondur what
won'd have happened had there
been plenty of ammunition and
Dewey had been feeling well.

TUB DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
In going ovor tho list of mem
bors of tho nest United States
Congross ono may woll ask what
has bocomo of the Democratic
party. Tho old line Democracy
como9 all most ontiroly from tho
"solid South." From tho other
States tho mix up of Fusionists
and Populists is so marked that
the dividing linos in tho next
Congress will be botweon tho Re
publican party and tho Opposition.
Of tho ninety senators in tho
Fifty Sixth Congross, but twenty
six arc straight out Democrats and
of this number all but six aro
from tho formor confederate
In tho Houso of Representatives
of the Fifty sixth Congress thero
will be loo Republicans to 1U3
strict Democrats and 9 Populists
or Silverites, or a Republican ma
jority of 13 ovor the Bryanito
coalition: Of tho 163 Democrats,
81 will bo from States making up
the old ooutuern (Jonfederacy and
2-1 more from former slave States
108 in all, or about two-thirds.
Of tho romuining 55, as many as
18 will bo from New York, and
all of theso except thrco from tbo
city of New York alouo. Tho
free silver South, with the assist
ance of New York 'city, therefore,
will have all the Democratic Repre
sentatives of tho Union oxcopt 40,
That is, tako out tho city of Now
York and tho solid South, and tho
Democratic party would bo re
duced to practical annihilation in
Congress. All the Populists or
Silverites will be from the littlo
silver States, except ono from
Kansas and ono from North Caro
lina. This shows that notwithstand
ing tho old namo still holds, tho
Bryan combination comes pretty
close to ruling what thero is left
of the Democratic roost. The
bond of union is that tho various
factions aro in minority and can
hold tngother only by an opposi
tion to anything and everything
that is. That thoso forces can
combine to accomplish anything
oithor in Congress or in national
politics is only a possibility.
Tho Advertiser continues to
make tho statomont that President
Dole is not a candidate for the
governorship, though in tho opin
ion of that journal be is indubit
ably the man for that placo. Mr.
Dole Bays it would be indelicate
for him to come oat as a candidate
for an office which does not now
exist. On the surface Mr. Dole
appears not to bo oithor politician
or otlico f ooker. But appearances
do not always signify, as tho
monkey remarked whon ho pulled
the chestnut from tho fire. Mr.
Dole no doubt foels that it would
bo indelicate, becauso of his ac
tion in framing tho Constitution
of 189'!. It will bo remembered
that ho wns insistent on one
point: "That tho torm of presi
dent shall be for six years and
that ho shall notsuccoed himself."
With that olaueo burnt into his
mind it would indeed bo indelicate
in Mr.-Dolo to press auy imagin
ary olaims ho may havo for tbo
olhoo ot Governor of Hawaii be
cause as such head of affairs he
would be succeodiog himsolf.
