A reference to the state
ment below will show that
the circulation sworn to is a
bona fide one.
It is easily possible for a
. newspaper with an elastic
conscience to swell its Iegit
imate circulation enor
mously, in order to deceive
advertisers, by sending out
thousands of papers to
news stands, which are re
turnable, and which are in
fact returned, but neverthe
less are included in what
purports to be an honest
statement of circulation.
however, judge by results,
and bogus circulation don't

In submitting this forecast of the result of the coming
election it is confidently believed that the Cleveland-Whitney
faction of the Democratic party will not be able to buy up the
Chicago convention and that its free-silver candidates will
be indorsed by the Populist element of the country. Suck- ar
combination would be natural under the circumstances, inas
much as the November polls present an exceedingly favor
able opportunity for the silverites to capture both the execu
tive and legislative branches of government. It will be a
political contest between the South and West combined
against the East, and it will also involve the country hi' ft
financial and commercial war that will take years to settle. "
Whether or not this great political flghtia tobe regretted
remains to be seen. The growing, grasping infiueacV of
corporations over legislative
and made them eager to accomplish, the political downfall of
these legalized commercial vampires. The experience "of the
Cleveland administration has also convinced many thatHe
golditss are not in politics for fun, and it would not be'
astonishing to see the "sound money" ticket buried under
an avalanche of popular disapproval, so strong is the aversion
of the common people to the
the money-baron influence.
Summed up in a few words,
political battle between the people and the corporations and
syndicates, and it will result in
ticket. This means the defeat of McKinley and the Eepub

period of useful achievement and forward
to a resumption of tbelr labors after a
season of recreation. Retrospect and pros

but also a few that are not so pleasant to
contemplate. Foremost among the former
Is tbe general excellence of oar public
schools. Few cities can make as good an
exhibit In this respect as Washington; suit
lets, if indeed any, surpass It. The gradu
ates of tbe Washington schools fill honora
ble positions In all walks of life, both in
this city and elsewhere, and the good train
ing they have obtained gives warrant for
tbe assumption that their successors will
be equally well equipped.
The drawbacks must be laid at the door
nf Congress, which has failed all along to
make the necessary appropriations for ac
commodations sufficient for all the chil
dren In tbe District and for certain acces
sories, such as manual training schools,
which would give the children still larger
The People and
Some theater managers profess to have
discovered tbe real cause of tbe bad financial
results of the last season. Tbey charge it
all to tbe bicycle. Tbey declare that tbe
"bike" exercises such fascination over its
devotees that they use it to the exclusion of
all indoor entertainment until very late In
the fall, take it up, orout, again very early
in the spring, and do not even entirely
abandon it In the winter when tbe condition
of tbe streets Is such as to admit ot it. If
only the men were concerned, themanjgers
say. It would not be so bad, perhaps, but
tbe women are Just as enthusiastic
"wheelers" as their brothers and beaux and
husbands, and thus it comes that even good
attractions have only "a beggarly array
ot empty benches" as tbelr reward. Thus
the disgruntled and disgusted managers.
Perhaps there Is a modicum or truth In
tbelr Indictment of the wheel, but the chief
cause of the managers diminished revenues
lstbe man jgers themselves. Tbereasonwhy
audiences have not been. larger is two
fold; a majority of the attractions, sc-called,
bavsnotbeensucb as to commend themselves

to the public approbation, and again, when
there was anything of real merit the prices
were at once raised up to such figures as to
deter all save those wltn wen nilcd parses.
In fact, itjs a question If tbe general run
of prices at tbe leading theaters in large
dHcs arc not too high for the great ma
jority ot the people who, under ether cir
cumstances, would be the best patrons.
Tew managers will contradict tbe asser
tion that If they bad to depend upon the
wealthy cfci sscs their receipts would be very
materially decreased. It fs tbe people of
moderate incomes who most frequent these
places of amusements
Here is a point which theatrical managers
will do well to consider, ir they stop pay
ing absurdly high prices to a. few great
singers, or to an exceptionally talented
actress;, they cju find their reckoning.
lt them engage well balanced companies;
pot upon -tbe stage a good order of plays

candidate not Id attendance upon tbe

The good nature and patience of the
delegates manifested In the report of the
proceedings was complimented by the
candidate and his friends, it being the ex
pressed opinion ihattheSC Lou la convention
would compare mos tfnvorably In this
respect with that of any or lu pred
ecessors, and- esnedallv so In view of the
fact of the radical differences, that hadf
U been generated In tbe preliminary canvasses.
At 4 SO the votes by States began com
ing over tbe telephone and: Major MiKin-
hley donnlDC Ms glasses, amidst' a silence
broken only by the licking- of the telegraph
1 Instrument, began scoring tbe vote by States
as fast as it was- called. He poled the mer
lest trifle as the first figures were named,
'those from Alabama, but there was not a
tremor in bis voice as he spoko of the con

j satisfied with tbe declarations In the plat
form The Cuban plank Is said to cave re-
p ceived bis approval and to be in- close har

kto that subject.
When it was announced that Foraker bad
taU-n the platform to present McKinley's
name there was a chorus of "Good" from
tbe ladles, wbo appeared much more ex
cited than the gentlemen. Major McKinley
uenerallv occuoied a revolvine- chair In
I. front ot his closed roll desk, but from time
totimc moved about,noterjctlylna nervous
monneivbut as if anxious to see tbatevery
tbing went on all right.
He was. solicitous, that all the news re-
' ceived should be distributed, among those
at the porch. and as fast as tbe telegraphic
bulletin were. banded him lie directed that
tbey be sent outside for tbelr information.
WAS A TRYING POSITION.
He received two or three parties or
visttnrs wno called to pay their re-pects
and he introduced them to bur guests
about the house. It was a trylcg-position,
but he bore himself through It all with
dignity and serenity. A flash- orthe eye
'.under tbe overhanging brows alone told
of the emotion within.
The situation was relieved somewhat by
numerous features of tbe bulletins, espe
cially those which described the scene In
tbe convention durirg Senator Foraker's
speech, that "The indications point to Me
Kinley's nomination on tbe (list ballot;"
and that Marie Hanna and. Biuhnellaret-m-1
bracing; and Grosvenor is fanning Hanna's
bead. The latter play amused the ladles.
OHIO TOTE ANNOUNCED.
AtO 19 the iiote of Ohio was announced

given at 467 t-U.. and McKinley astedr"Is
that by that bulletin?" and being assured
that It was; lie said:
"All right."" and swallowed a big lump
In Ins throat.
Several of those preeent congratulated
tlie candidate, and in tbe confus'on tbe
bulletins or votes were lost: Mr. Saxtca
called up central, giving instructions to
'continue repeating the .ote by States.
"That's light. Sam," said bis uncle, "yon.

fillul with hurrying multitudes, wbo did

house, and before Major MeKinley could
get out of the room they were- uron him
with their tumultuous and1 affectionate
congratulations- Among the first were
a number or boys; school children., and
these Major McKinley greeted with extra
Also quite a sprinkling of laborers, old
friends, wrung bis hand with a hearty

few minutes It was evident the throng
would choke- up tbe entrance and the
new candidate- took, his- place- on the
porch, where he could be seen by tbe
crowd. Before: leaving the house, how
ever; Major McKinley found his way to
his wire and: mother and received, the
sweetest of ail the affectionate greetings;
His appearance waa the signal for great
applause, which, continued tor a minute
or two. The committee in charge orthe
