Some of tho Republican leaders In
Congress arc not looking forward with
anticipations of any great success for
their party ns a result of the fall cam
paign One of them goes so far ns to
! pi edict nndTner Democratic landslide
such ns occurred In 1S90. There seems
to be no strong leadership among tho
Republicans of tho House of Represen
tatives. Some have sliown a disposi
tion to associate themselves with tho
Democrats during recenf legislation,

According to the statistician, Mill

The fact that tbtiro has been a sharp
decline In too exports ot American
