politics of the venal sort The New York
Tribune should make a note of this news.
New York is still a Democratic State.
For the seventh time In succession the
Democrats have elected their State ticket.
It is a notable triumph, won against heavy
odds. All the power of the National Ad
ministration, applied through the Federal
ofllces, and reinforced by contributions from
office-holders and the protected monopolies,
supported the perfect organization of the
Republican machine. But against all these
"abhorrent forces" the Democratic voters
have again prevailed. Like its courageous
Governor, the Empire State once more
stands up to say: "lama Democrat." As
Gov. Hill was made the central object of
Republican attack, and as he personally
directed the Democratic campaign, the
credit and the glory accrue to him uud
will add greatly to his prestige and strength
in the nation.
The Democrats have likewise made con
siderable gains In the Assembly in the dis
tricts of the Interior. The unprincipled
Piatt-Power deal in this city was made
to obtain a two.thlrds majority against
Gov. Hill. Instead of gaining this the Re
publican Iocs in the Stato at large will
leave the Assembly close. If the Demo

The news from Virginia at the hour of
going to press justifies the assertion that
the State is saved from the clutch of
Maiione. The only question appears to be
at what point between G.000 and 15,000 the
complete returns will leave the Democratic
majority. This news is doubly good. It
saves from disaster and dishonor a historic
State for which all Americans cherish
affection, and" It administers a de
served rebuke to the Administration
of Mr. Benjamin Harrison for its
unholy alliance with Virginia's political
freebooter, and especially to Mr. Harrison
himself for shameleisly prostituting his
power of appointment to the service of so
.unscrupulous an adventurer, and for per
'mjtting the Department of Justice itself to

From Ohio come reports of decided

The New York Sun took occasion to
say yesterday morning that The World
had " attempted a division of the Demo
cratic State ticket, with the hope of de
feating part of it."
What Tub World did was to advise
against the renomination of two State offi
cials who had been guilty of a neglect of
duty in regard to the Celling job at Albany,
and to point to a disclosed business con
nection of the Comptroller with canal con
tractors, in evasion it not in violation of
the law, as another proof that he should
not hare been renominated.
The World's view as to the justice and
policy of these nominations was sustained
by the solid vote of the New York and
Brooklyn delegations In the State Conven
tion, which both protested and voted
against them. It was right and wise coun
sel, as even those who disregarded it
perceived when they found the party
forced into a defensive campaign.
Tub Wobld has never knowingly sup
ported and will never support a corrupt
or unfit candidate nor urge the re-election
of 'an unfaithful official, no matter by
whom such men may be nominated. But
the New York Sun't natural affinity with
rogues and .blatherskites, with corporation
tools and ring rascals, is so potent that it
naturally prefers a tainted ticket or a
crooked candidato to ii clean or a straight
one. It has not a Democratic bone in its
Old Whig body. It pretends to serve that
party only to betray it at critical junctures.
For this it wus indicted and convicted
years ago, and has been suffering punish
ment ever since. Hence its sympathy
with everybody and everything that lias
deserved the whiplash of popular dis
pleasure. The Would has an honorable record for
consistency and faithful public service. It
is able to maintain that record at all times
because it owes allegiance only to the
', people and recognizes no masters but
Truth and Justice.

to the thought and feeling which are domi

the poor fellow who had to go to work

And Is the poor man to be insultingly told
by the roan whom his labor has enriched
' that he has " no stake in the welfare of the

whether or not the country shall continue

the enrichment of bll'monopolistlc master

Does thli country bslong to the rich or

Democratic doctrine true that "all men
are created equal " and that governments
" derive their just powors from the con

instituted for the benefit of the rich, such
as D. O. Mills and Jay Gould, or for that
of all the people equally? Is It their func

" Out of the fulness of tiie heart the
mouth speaketh," and the utterance we
have quoted above, witlt all its arrogant
insolence to the plain people,, is merely a
candid expression of Plutocracy's attitude
and opinion. The monopolists of every
kind, the possessors of great wealth well
or.lll gotten as the case may bo the bene
ficiaries of an unjust tariff which taxes the
impoverished many for the benefit of the
ricli few, are banded together not only to
propagate the un-American doctrine of
inequality but to fasten it in practice upon
the Institutions of the country. They
bought the Republican party a year or so
ago, and the organs of that party are bound
to maintain the doctrine.
But what do the common people, the
great army of workers, think of it? How
long will it be before they abandon the
party of the oppressor and bid it die for
Its crime against liberty, as they sentenced
Its ancestor, the old Federal party, to death
for its treason to the Republic ?

Count Sciiouvalovf happily sod of
America In his speech at the banquet
given in honor of Minister Phelps at Ber
lin on Monday that this country " stands
alone among the great powers as wanting
nothing and fearing nothing."
It would have been pertinent and inter
esting, though not easy or diplomatic,
if Minister Piielph had undertaken to
explain to the assembled company what
the Republic of the United Spates wanted
or feared in Samoa that it was led into
an interference in the concerns of that
far-distant island, peopled by a handful
of barburous sumi-savagca.
The Kumoan treaty is coming up In the
Senate, which is soon to assemble. And
when the Bubject shall come before that
body it is to be hoped that a decisive
majority, Irrespective of party lines, will
defend the American principle and nssert
the Ameilcan policy by tearing the treaty
to tatters and sending it out in the waste-
The United States has no interest nor
concern in tho government of islands or

But if it had a call to Interfere it would
be u stupendous stultification for the great
Republic to join with two monarchical
powers in setting up a King in Samoa,
and, worst of all, a King not wanted by
the Saraoans. The whole, business has
been a blunder and a bungle from the

As foretold in TnE World one weok ago
yesterday, the National Brotherhood of
Baseball Players has decided' to leave the
League In a body. To-day they promise
to join a number of prominent capitalists
and form an organization to be known as
the Players' Nattonal League. The address
Issued by the Brotherhood to tho public
sets forth tho reasons of the players for
taking this important step.
In this document they say that they liavo
been "bought, sold and exchanged as
though they were sheep Instead Of Ainerl

statement is true. It is also true that until
now the National League has had the
power to say to its players: "You must
conform to our laws or wo will prevent you
from playing baseball with auy important
organization in this country." Most of
these players have devoted their lives to
attaining skill on the ball Held and are ill
fitted for other pursuits. Is it not unjust
to compel theni to play for salaries with
which they are dissatisfied, and in cities
where they do not care to live, under a
penalty of practical disbarment from their

THE THEFT OP K0NTAHA,
The Republican Board of Canvassers lu
Montana has carried out, as far as was
in its power to do, the plot of the National
Committee of Its party to steal that State.
While tho caso of the rejected Tunnel
Precinct was pending In' the courts this
partisan Board met and canvassed the
returns from the State, " eliminating" the
whole vote of this strong Democratic pre
cinct. By this high-banded proceeding
the will of the people is defeated, the re
sult of the election Is reversed and the
State of Montana is stolen for the Repub
licans. Should the Court order the vote of the
rejected precinct to be counted the County
Clerk will issue certificates to the members
who were elected, and a contest Involving
the control of the Legislature would come
before that body. The Democrats of -Montana
would be justified in proceeding to
any extreme to prevent the consummation
of this robber', should the contestants b
given their proper status in the Legislature
and then be denied their seats.
Montana would better remain outside the
Union than to come in with the brand of
fraud and theft on her etcutchson.
?0S TEE BEflEETX OF ALL.
The proposition to hold the World's Fair
at Washington is as much a local and indi
vidual speculation as the suggestion to
locate it at Chicago. The enterprise would
simply be for the benefit of real-estate
speculators and of the business men of the
National capital. Even if it wcro constU,
tutional to appropriate the people's money
for the expense of the speculation, the ex
penditure would be of no advantage or
profit to the nation. The Exposition itself
would be a losing investment. No great
number of people would visit It. Foreign
nations would be but meagrely repre
sented. It would not spread over the
world an adequate idea of the vastness of
our resources and of our nstonishing
progress In arts and manufactures. It
would be, no doubt, an attractive enough
home show, but it would leave us at the
end of its six months' existence, if indeed
it lasted so long, In precisely tho same
position we were in before its opening.
The advantage of locuting the Fair in tho
great metropolis of the western continent
is that here it would be In reality a
"World's Fair." Tho goods of foreign
nations would pour into our port from all
partB of the globe. Ever State in the
Union has business with New York, and
every Stato would be jealouB to make a
great show in the Exposition. Exhibitors
would bo put to the minimum of expense.
T11lfnnB nff tinnnlp wmilfl visit tlin Vulr
because they would be sure of ample
accommodations and ODly ordinary charges.
The enterprise would pay its own expenses
and realize an ample profit. At its close
the fame of American genius and enter
prise would bo carried into every clime,
and the people of the United States would
reap a substantial and permanent benefit
from Maine to California, from tho Lakes
to the Gulf.
Of courso tho World's Fair would be of
great local advantage to the city. Our
general business men, like railroads and
hotels, would get a hundredfold return for
all the money they might subscribe to
make the enterprise a success. But here,
as in no other location in the Union, would
the Fair benefit the whole nation, advance
the prosperity of all the States, raise the
Standard ol the National credit and honor,
and advance us a quarter of a century In
the onward march of the civilized world.
This is why New York is for more than
Washington the National site for the Co
lumbus Fair, and why all the States should
desire ItsMocation in the metropolis.
The election of the entire Tammany
ticket in this city, with one exception, by
an average majority of 7,500, is one of the
most notable victories ever won bv that
ancient organization. Against the entire
Republican party and the County Demo
cratic machine, which last year polled
togather 24,000 raoro votes than Tammany,
the old Wigwam now wins. This is due to
the goodmunicipxl administration of Mayor
Grant and tho excellent nominations made
for the local offices. It is a merited defeat
of a most unprincipled and barefaced
" deal." Tho defeat of Judge Gildbr
bleeve is attributable to the partiality of
Mr. Fitzoeuald'b compatriots for that gen
tleman and to the hostility of the liquor
dealers. It is a regrettable incident.

The parish of this church is ery large and
wealthy, bnt many of its beit member hare
moved further uptown, and hence found it in
convenient to attend. The attachment of all

About twelve years ago a young girl came to
Si. Louis from a town in Illinois aud obtained

anu went to the female hospital, where a son
was born. She gave the baby to a man named
Daly, who came to the hospital seeking to adopt
a child and bearing a letter of recommendation
from Dr. J. B. Johnson. Bhortly afterwards
tho girl went to Chicago and married a man
now said to be "prominent in business cir
clet." His name it not given in tho
letter. She has kept her husband in entire
ignorance of Her past history, but. as the letter
states, the unknown fate of her child has
haunted her, and she desires now to Ilud ont
what has become of him. If he is well and not
in want, she does not want to know anything of
him; if he is in.want she detire to provide for
him. In any case she wants ueerecy preserved.
A visit to Dr. Johnson confirmed tho stotv,
but he knew nothing of the girl or of.Uie child.
A. M. Daly M ieen and said that he could re
member only that at the time be was koeping a
hotel and a wealthy old farmer and his wife
stopped with him. He could not remember
their names, bnt their home was near Decatur.

for the CKpecisl purpoxe of securing an infant
from some institution. They vtantnd Daly to
assist them, and in nccordance with their re-
Suett he secured the recommendation from Dr.
ohnson, got the child from the hospital and
gave it to the old couple. Mr. Daly hat hoard
