WHAT liOSS IT
The returns of the elections are
now sufficiently complete, says the
New York World, to estimate their
bearing upon the Presidential elec
tion. Have the Democrats recovered
any of the ground iost in 1896, or
since the disastrous defeat of that
year? How does the part' stand
now relative to its successes in the
years preceding the Presidential
election of 1892, when Mr. Cleve
land was chosen?
In 1890 and 1S91 the Democrats
earried these States, all Northern
except one: Connecticut, Illinois,
Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan,
New York, New Jerpe', Rhode
Island, Wisconsin, having a total
of 143 electoral votes, or nearly one
third of the whole number.
In other words, the election of the
Democratic Presidential candidate
in 1892 was practically assured in
In the elections of this year and
last the Democrats have lost all of
these States'save Maryland which
has just been recovered by drop
ping free silver and the Cbicago
platform and making a fight on
local issues with sound-money can
didates. How stands the compavison with
1896? Mr. Bryan Was beaten by a
majority of 95 in the total number
of electors. He has lost since then,
of ' the former Republican States
carrried by the fusion, Kansas,
South Dakota, Washington and
Wyoming. The first two, voting
this year, have greatly increased
their Republican majorities of 189S.
All are irretrievably lost to fusion,
with their 21 electoral votes.
Of the former Democratic States
lost by Mr. Bryan in 1896 Con
necticut, Delaware, Indiana, Ken
tucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New
York and West Virginia all re
main in the control of the Repub
licans except Maryland, which was
carried by the Democrats this year
in the manner already explained.
There is no reason to doubt that it
would be lost again next year upon
the free-silver issue. The fourth
successive Republican victory in
the formerly rock-ribbed Demo
cratic State of New Jersey is most
In Nebraska Mr. Bryan won a
splendid personal triumph. He
was entirely justified in receiving
the news of the victory with ' eyes
sparkling with delight." Yet it was
ji triumph not of Democracy but of
fusion complete and harmonious
and fusion has fallen to pieces near
ly everywhere else. Mr. Bryan
forced the fighting at the last on
imperialism and monopoly and woiij
but he should not permit the sparkle
in his eye to hide from him the
obvious fact that talcing the country
together the Democrats were badly
beaten worse than in 1896. No
man is more disastrously looled
than one who deceives himself
who will not see facts that are plain
to everybody else.
The elections mean a victor)' for
imperialism in a inajerity of the"
Stales voting. There is neither
honesty nor profit in denying this.
The)' mean also a triumph for Mr.
MoKinley but a triumph that was
made easy by Mr. Bryan and his
friends in thrusting again to the
front at the beginning of the cam

free silver and the thrice-condCm-ned
THE STORY OF JUDAS.
One of the sights of the great
cattle yards of Chicago is an old
white ox, named Judas. An ox
may rise to eminence by his cun
ning and wisdom as well as a man,
and Judas has risen. He came to
the yards a good many years ago,,
while he wa yet a frisky steer and
he was immediately purchased by
one of the great packing houses
and driven from the train which
brought hi in from his Iowa home
to a distant yard.
The life of most animals at the
cattle yards is very short a week
at the very most. A tew days after
the arriva'l of Judas the herd of
cattie which occupied the pen with J
him was selected for killing. The j
way to the packing house led' down '
a long alleyway with high fences on
each side, then up a narrow chute
and into the building. For some
reason the cattle seem to know
what is coming, for they always ob
ject to being driven up the chute".
Judas was no exception. He plung
ed madly about among the herd
and the cattlemen had more trouble
with him than with any other ani
mal. At last, however, beseemed
to realize that sooner or later he
must go and he made a virtue of a
necessity, trotted quietly, up the
chute and the other cattle followed
rapidly after him. Thus he ran
until he had just reached the door
of the packing house. Then, quick
as a wink, he turned and galloped
down a side passage and escaped,
while the other cattle went onward
into the building.
Judas has been so very clever
that the good-natured cattlemen let
him go for that day. for genius is to
be appreciated in a steer as well as
in a man. The next day, however,
they drove him up again with an
other herd. This time he made
not the slightest objection, but trot
ted forward quietly, and the other
steers, having a confident leader,
behaved admirably. But just as
Judas reached the door of the build
ing he dodged again, so suddenly
that the men couldn't turn him,
and escaped as he had done before,
while the herd behind him went
careering into the killing room.
Since then Judas has been a re
gular employe of the cattle yards.
Every day he leads up a herd of
cattle and every day he dodges just
at the door of the building. He
has saved the cattlemen no end of
trouble and delay with riotous herds
since he began his service. He has
grown fat and sleek on the good
living of the yards, and so highly
arc his services regarded that the
cattlemen provide him with a white
blanket on co d clays to keep him
And thus he is living to a green
old age, but he bears the disrespect
able name of J udas the betrayer.
CONTEST IN THE SENATE.
Washington, Nov. 20. There
will be several interesting contests
in the senate when congress meets.
There are always contests for seats
in the house and sometimes the
congress has nearly expired betore
they are all settled, but it is not
usual for a senator's seat to be con
tested. When the next congress meets,
however, in December there will be
a complex situation. " The seat of
Mr. Scott of West Virginia is to be
contested on the ground that he
did not have a legal majority of the
legislature, and that his election
was by an agreement. How much
this contest will amount to it is
hard to say, but it is not now very
seriouslv thought of.
A more serious and much more
interesting contest will be that over
the Montana senatorship, in which
democrats are involved on both
sides. It is said that very sensa
tional 'developments may be expect
ed in this contest. The charge made
by the enemies of Mr. CiarSr, who
has the certificate of election, is thak
his election was accomplished
through bribery on a grand scale.
It is asserted by th'em that it cost
him something in the neighborhood
of $750,000 to get the election. At
this time disbarment proceedings
are being conducted in the supreme
court of Montana against his attor
ney, on the charge that he was an
agent through which bribes were
made or offered. The case will be
disposed of probably some time be
fore congress meets, and when con
gress assembles the fight win be
transferred to Washington.
JD-venmoTeinterestmg than this
contest will be the discussion and
determination of whether Mr. (&uay
is to be given a seat on the appoint
ment by Governor Stone, it is
anticipated that this case will be
determinedly contested. In spite
of the fact that Mr. Quay cannot
be seated without a number of
senators stultifying themseive?, the!
Quay people insist that a majority
will vote to give him his seat. Every
state in the Union will take an in-.
teres t in this contest, inasmuch as

"i PRICE BAKING POWDER CO.,
a decision in favor of Mr. Qnay will
be apt to lean to' deadlocks-in all
legislatures in the future, where
there is any rivalry for the election
and result finally in what would
amount strictly to the election of
senator, by legislatures becoming a
dead letter,- the selection always be
ing made by governors, like ordinary
baiit to Have Purchased the Coronatio
A very robust rumor-Is prevalent
in the city that the Southern Pacific
company has bought the Coronado
Belt railway. This was learned by
a Tribune representative this morn
ing from what is U3tsally considered
a reliable source, and inquiry in
other directions substantiate this
statement. That this city is on
the evejjof securing another trans
continental railroad within the.
near future has been considered
certain for some time past and
speculation has been prolific as to
what road should be the first of the
new systems to come to this harbor.
As the Tribune understands the
situation from the rumors, the
Southern Pacific intends to build
across the deeert from a point at or
near iuma, ana enter this city
over the Coronado belt line, which
has its terminus at present at the
foot of Filth street. There are also
a number of men who say that the
rumor has no foundation in fact.
If the Coronado belt line is sold, it
is probably covered by a bid in
escrow for the present.
The anxiety of certain prominent
residents of the city io have Mayor
Capps arrange the railroad franchise
so that it will not be necessary for
him to return it to tlsc council to
night is an evidence that they realize
that the secret of the coming of the
new road cannot longer be held in
abeyance. The route of the pro
posed road to Yuma will carry it
into Mexico, and several days ago
it is said Manager Packard, of the
Lower California Development c )m
pany, was waited upon atEnsenada
by S. P. railroad officials in this
connection. Friday night a steam
shovel and other machinery neces
sary for grading purpose?, arrived
here consigned to the Coronado
Beach company, and while it is
claimed that this machinery is oly
for work at Coronado, is believed to
be the first consignment of an ex
tensive railroad grading outfit.
The Tribune, while believing
that the early arrival of another
railroad at this port is one of the
'logical sequences of the rapid ex
pansion uf Pacific coast commerce,
aul that in all probability that road
will be the Southern Pacific, does
not wish to be classed among the
.vildcat railroad boomers, and it
therefore give; the statement for
what it is worth. San Diego Trib-

lcssening space. The same thing
is beinsc done by the acquisition and
improvement of these outlying
stations. Once the vast expanse of
the Pacific ocean more than twice
the width of the Atlantic was
deemed an almost insuperable bar
rier to intimacy between the nations
dwelling on its opposite shores.'
Today the Pacific does not requite
on any important line of travel as
long a run between ports as does the
Atlantic. That is literally true.'
