LESSONS OF THE ELECTION.
The political revolt developed in last
Tuesday's elections has no parallel in
the history of the country. Its effect is
most apparent and most important in
the house of representatives ; although
other effects are not to be lost sight of.
The control of the executive department
of government in several states that
have been in the hands of the Republi-
can party is one of these. Another is
the possession of a majority of the legis
latures of similar states. In several
cases this will give us a seat in the
United States senate ailed by a Repub
lican exclusively, or nearly so, for 25
or -30 years. New Hampshire, New
York, Colorado and Wisconsin are such
instances. In the case of New York
this matter is all the more important,
for the reason that the empire state has
been for years so gerrymandered
that her population has been
practically disfranchised in the senate.
A fair apportionment of the state would
insure the return of a Democratic sena
tor year in and year out to an indefinite
date. Thus Tuesday's upheaval lays the
foundation on which may be built a
Democratic senate in time. It will not
be for years, of course, for the reason
that it now consists of eighty-four mem
bers, of which forty-seven are Republi
cans and thirty-seven Democrats.
Should Teller, of Colorado, Farwell, of
Illinois, Blair, of New Hampshire, and
Evarts, of New York, be succeeded in
the Fifty-second congress by Democrats,
taking four members from the Republi
can side of that body and putting as
many on the other side, the majority of
the dominant party will be but two. If
Powers were to lose his place in Mon
tana, that would make the senate a tie,
and if the Farmers' Alliance should un
seat Ingalls in Kaunas ami replace him by
an independent, thatsenator would have
the balance of power. If Palmer should
be returned from Illinois, the Demo
cratic party would have a slender ma
jority. But it is not to be hoped that
all these expectations will be tilled.
Shdurd half of them carry it would be
much; and if we hold our ascendancy
among the voters three to five years
would make the senate reliably Demo
cratic. It is hardly to be expected that
we will hold our own in all cases in the
election of legislatures to choose senators
in 1893. In our own state the next leg
islature will be overwhelmingly Repub
lican, and the holdover senators will
give that party a long start in the race.
It is quite likely that in 1893, California
will have two Republicans in the
United States senate. Therefore it may
require four or five years for our party
to obtain control of that body.
In laying plans to gain such control,
we mnst first learn what produced the
change in the political complexion of
the country last Tuesday, what causes
led to the revolt, and how we are to
maintain our hold on the voters of the
The forces which caused the changes in
the political complexion were Republi
can votes cast for Democratic candidates.
That is simple enough. The causes that
led to this change of front on the part
of so many thousands of voters are more
complex. Mr. McKinley says the tariff
alone produced the revolt. It is natural
for us all to think we are a bit too near
the center of the universe, and there is
no reason to think that innate modesty
saves the author of the tariff bill from this
weakness of our common humanity. No
one cause produced the effect in view.
Speaker Reed's attempt to sub
vert the proper autonomy of the
house did some of the good
work. Lodge's efforts to interfere
with the rights of the stateß to conduct
elections as they see fit did its share.
The failure of the Republicans in the
last session of congress to pass a proper
silver bill did as much in making Dem
ocratic votes as any other cause. There
were local issues that, joined with these
others, worked to the same end. In
Nebraska and lowa, the fact that a large
number of the Republicans are prohibi
tionists, and that the party coquette
with this crank element, was such an
issue. In Wisconsin the contest cen
tered largely in an attempt on the part
of the Republicans to dictate to people
how they shall educate their children.
The question was not simply compulsory
education, but what branches of study
shall be pursued in the public schools.
In Pennsylvania the unblushing ef
frontery of Mat Quay and his kind in
their attempt to run a political machine
in order to defeat the will of the honest
voters had some effect in creating Patti
son's majority. And as a general cause
operative over the whole length and
breadth of the country was the Lillipu
tian dimensions of the national admin
istration being run by the little man
overshadowed by his grandfather's hat.
The charges against the culprit at the
bar of public opinion were many, and
the verdict of the people was against
the multitudinous misdemeanors of the
The question is, how shall we hold
tu«.T3- pew allies and make them per
manent and component parte of our
party? In a word, by remembering the
pauses that brought them over to us.
THE LOS ANGELES HBRALD: FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 7, 1890.
Any notion that any one cause
did this good work is wrong, and |
will lead to action more or
less radical. Success is liable
to blind good judgment and lead to irre
parable mistakes. The neophyte is
always an easy backslider. Any attempt
at one-sided, radical and wild develop
ments will drive these deserters back to
their own camp. What we want to do
is to keep our head, more carefully
attend to the businessof the people with
earnestness and on a well devised and
conservative programme, and we will
gain control of the national government
in 1892. We have issues enough of a
vital sort to forsake all fads and carry
the country. Moderate and gradual
tariff reform, the building up of
a great navy, the fortification of the
harbors, the improvement of naviga
tion, free coinage of silver, the honest
expenditure of public money, proper
care of the deserving old soldiers within
the limits of proper regard for the rights
of the people generally, will win our
A TRIBUTE TO GENIUS AND MODEST
The Fort-street Slimes yesterday as
sayed to be humorous at the expense of
all its neighbors; and, inebriated by the
delight produced by a contemplation of
its intellectual offspring, branded the
monstrous birth with the sign of a copy
right. This was an unnecessary ex
penditure of labor and time. The thing
is most difficult to dispose of at first
hands, and as a second-hand proposi
tion the goods are less saleable than
junk. The wordy inanity is not worth
a cent the million sentences. But it
must require some unusual effort on the
part of the Slimes to even appear happy
under the present circumstances.
If it were to allow itself to fall into a
contemplative mood, it would do as lago
advised be done with kittens and blind
nups, incontinently go and hang itself.
It opposed the election of Judge McKin
ley, with the usual result that he ran
ahead of his ticket. McKinley is not a
bad sort of fellow; if he were the Slimes
would have supported him; but his
maternal parent would hardly claim for
him any virtues that would account for
his beating the other Republican
candidates on the judicial ticket.
His popularity grows directly out
of the opposition of the Slimes.
If that highly esteemed contempo
rary were to open tire on the devil
the result would be to elevate hissatanic
majesty to his lost place in the hierarchy
of Heaven. But that is not all. The
Slimes, for «ome occult reason,while pre
tending to oppose the re-election of
Stanford, championed the cause of the
legislative ticket of its party, making a
pet of its old antipathy, Walter S.
Moore, a subject as malodorous as
one of its own faked and sala
cious sensations. The Slimes' pet,
the soi-dissant "Blue-eyed Boy of
destiny," came out of the fight not only
with his eyes of tbe tint of the sloe,
but literally pounded to a jelly under
the multitudinous and indignant blows
of an outraged populace. His own pre
cinct—under the shadow of his own
roof—set him back sixty votes behind
his ticket. Perhaps the destiny Moore
met was not all wrought by the friendly
offices of the Slimes, but judging by
many instances in the past, his Water
loo was made all the more dis
astrous by the blundering generalship
of that Mark Tapley of journals, which
can be so hilarious at the expense of its
neighbors under such trying circum
stances. The Slimes might be a daisy
—might be—but is not! The Slimes is
pleased to notice us in the way of carp
ing criticism. Our methods are not ap
proved by it. VVe acknowledge the corn,
plead our demerits, doff our sombrero
to superior journalistic merit, and ten
der the above sincere encomium to dis
The San Francisco Bulletin thinks the
result of the election, so different in Cal
ifornia from that in the east, is due to
the superior intelligence of the people
of this state. Much as one would like
to lay this flattering unction to the soul,
the desire to appear possessed of a com
mon measure of intelligence would for
bid. The unconscionable lying of the
Bulletin had some small influence in the
results, and that proposition is not quite
in consonance with the claim of intelli
gence. The Bulletin is putting in great
jeopardy its only small and questionable
reason for existing. Besides, the change
of heart on political issues was too gen
eral and too sudden south of Market
street in the breezy city of the Bulletin
to justify the assertion that intellect had
anything to do with the matter. When the
proletariat of Tar Flat and the Barbary
Coast is swung in a body to any politi-"
cal cause, it is not done by recondite
knowledge or abstruse study of tariff
schedules. The process is more simple.
The Bulletin seems to have forgotten
the simple but most efficient means, not
intellectual at all, however, by which it
was caved down the bank. That is the
way the thing was done, dear deacon.
Too much sack! That is all the intel
lectual processes the state resorted to
last Tuesday in arriving at so strange re
Tun San Francisco Post gives accounts
of many precincts south of Market
street, in which the registered vote was
200 more or less, and where 75 per cent,
of it all was deposited by 11 or 12
o'clock on the morning of election day.
It 13 usual to see a crowd of fifty men
stand around the polls in these locali
ties all day "waiting for something to
turn up." That shows how early and
how generally the sack was opened on
that day. No wonder all the senators
and nearly all the assemblymen from
that city are Republicans.
Mb. Blame gaid last Saturday night
in Philadelphia that the election of last
Tuesday was a crisis in the history of
the party. He said the defeat of Dela
mater would be a wound bo deep that
that there would be no balm in < Ulead
to heal it. He said to fail to carry Perm
sylvania would be the death blow of the
Republican party. Republicans usually
regard Mr. Blame as an unerring oracle.
He probably was in these utterances.
The fact that all the senators and
nearly all the assemblymen from San
Francisco are Republicans, shows where
the battle raged the hottest, and where
the sack was most potent in Tuesday's
General Palmer seems to have won
his battle in his popular canvass for
United States senator. It is a time
honored manner of deciding who shall
represent the states in the senate.
Io Triumpiie! That is the song
the victorious Democracy sings in
many states held in bondage of the en
emy for a score of years past.
Ingalls appears to be doomed. His
own state spews him out of its mouth as
too bitter a pill to retain on the

Exhuming a Famous Composer.
The remains of Johann Christoph
Gluck, the great composer, were ex
humed at the Matzleinsdorf cemetery,
Vienna, where they had rested since
1787, and reinterved at the Centrai cem
etery, in the Musicians' corner, near
those of Beethoven and Schubert, and
close to the Mozart monument. The
grave was in a disgraceful state. The
grass mouud had fallen in and was
overgrown with weeds; the gravestone
had disappeared, and only an obelisk
bearing Gluck's name marked the spot.
The workmen had some difficulty in
clearing away the roots and shrubs.
The first thing brought up was a por
tion of a rotten wooden coffin, followed
by fragments of bones —a shoulder blade,
portions of the skull, a collar bone, arm
bones, the under jaw, with three teeth,
a double tooth, one or two ribs, and
finally some flowing brown hair, proba
bly from a periwig. The earth was
6ifted for an hour, and as nothing more
could be found a wooden case was filled
with the remains and placed in a hand
some metal coffin, over which the Vienna
Men's Amateur choir afterward sang
selections from Gluck's Vienna operas,
performing in the evening his "Ameida."

A Promising Western Industry.
The sugar beet factory at Grand
Island, Neb., began operations recently,
and manufactured over 300 barrels of
refined sugar, ready for market, during
the first twenty-four hoars it was in
operation. The statement is made that
it is the largest and most complete beet
sugar factory in the world. The long
drought cut the crop of beets short,
therefore the new factory will only have
supplies for a ninety day run. This is
an enterprise of wonderful interest to
the farmers of 'he great grain raising
If sugar beet raiding proves successful
tbe manufacture of our own sugar will
be of inestimable benefit to all the
people of the nation. When our shops
and factories consume all the farm prod
ucts the days of depression and over
production are past, and farming will
be prosperous business at all times.
The Grand Island mill has a capacity
of 350 tons of beets per day, which yield
250 barrels of sugar. Every particle of
the beet is saved, cattle being fed on the
refuse, and chewing gum being made of
certain parts that are left over.—lowa
Light Fingered with His Teeth.
A few days ago John Beuzley, a well
known sporting man, appeared at the
Four Courts and complained to the po
lice that he had been robbed of a dia
mond stud valued at $500, for the recov
ery of which he would give $200. He
stated that he was in company with a
man named Fuerst, alias Forrest, and
that when lie awoke next morning his
diamond was gone. As the screw part
still remained in his shirt he came to
the conclusion that it could not have
been lost, consequently the thief must
have embraced him and bitten the dia
mond out of the setting.
Hardly had Mr. Benzley reported his
robbery when Nettio May complained to
the police that she had had bitten out ol
her ear a diamond earring valued at $250.
She said that she was in company with
Fuerst. While they were in the house
he placed his arms around her neck and
hugged and kissed her. After his de
parture she discovered the loss of one of
her diamond earrings, although the set
ting still remained in her ear, the thief
having bitten the diamond out. —St.
An Aroostook Product.
The annual "potato raid" is in progress
in Aroostook, Me., as the starch facto
ries are beginning their season's work.
This is«no of tho most novel sights to
be witnessed in this section of the coun
try—the long lino of teams hauling tho
potatoes to the factories and waiting
their turn to unload. There is a great
crop in Aroostook this j-ear, the largest
for many years, in fact, and thero will
be a good supply for the factories, as the
latter are paying very good prices.
There are about forty factories in Aroos
took county and on its border, and as
they use upward of two million bushels
yearly, it is seen that potato raiting and
starch making in Aroostook are indus
tries of considerable magnitude.—Cor.

In removing tho sand from tho gold a
piece of the original nugget was broken
off. The two pieces, one weighing 34
pennyweights 0 grains, the other 15 pen
nyweights, are on exhibition at the

A BUSINESS PROPOSITION.
A Oitj Lady Who Required Proof Before
There recently appeared in the Ban Francisco
Call, Chronicle, and Examiner, a proposition
hitherto unheard of in similar business rela
tions. It was nothing more nor less than an
advertisement In which the Edwin W. Joy
Company. In proof of the curative properties of
Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla, offered for a limited
period to submit it to the terrific test of "no
cure no pay." Many accepted, and their letters
giving their experience are bo convincing as
to be almost beyond belief. Here It another,
written under date January «, 1890:—
Tear Sirs: I accepted your offer to test tho
merits of your vegetable remedy in sick head
aches, aud called for a bottle and got it. I had
been troubled for a long time, and had tried
nearly everything, with little or no effect; but
Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla acted almost like
magic, and the first bottle relieved mo from one
of the worst cases of sick headache one ever
had. MRS. M. 8.-PRICE.

Mr. Gould's Wealth.
Russell Sage's recent interview makes
out Jay Gould a richer man than he is
generally credited with being. Mr. Sage
says Gould is tho heaviest owner of se
curities in tho world, his income alone
from dividends being $2,000,000 a year.
Outside of this he has an income of from
$10,000,000 to $12,000,000. It is under
stood that Mr. Gould aims to make his
wealth net him about 0 per cent., and
if this is the case, and Mr. Sage knows
what he is talking about, Mr. Gould
will have to be moved up several pc;,»
