Since our lust issue the State elec
tion has been held in Ohio, and the
result wfiB a Republican victory by a
plurality of over 17,000 votes. If
this were the presidential year, this
defeat of the Democratic party would
be of some significance, as indicating
the popularity or unpopularity of
President Cleveland's administration
As it is, however, the off year in poli
tics, Ohio has simply returned to the
mire of republicanism. And now that
this agony is over, all eyes are direct
ed to New York ; and upon the pros
p?eta lhere, the New York Sun speaks
" Now that the Ohio election is over
and its effect upon the minds of our
citi&onB has been produced, we are oil
prepared to take a distinct and satis

"We know that the Democratic
ticket headed by Hill and Jones ought
to be elected, and we believe that it
will be. The reasons for this faith
are simple and cogent.
" The Democracy of this State is
thoroughly united. There is no fae
ticus quarrel which diminishes the
Democratic vote. That vast number
of citizens who last fall voted for
Blaine, have come back, and are
among the most enthusiastic support
crs of Hill and Jones. This is a fact
of the highest moment.
" Moreover, a great service has been
rendered to Governor Hill by the ut
tacks which his enemies have now
made. They have accused him of
having had discreditable dealings
with Hr. Tweed some fifteen years
ago, and a great display of illusive
evidence has been made to sustain this
accusation. Only yesterday a num
ber of journals that oppose his elec
tion devoted a great portion of their
space to fae similes ot checks and re
ceipts which are supposed to support
it. A more extravagant, malicious,
and unjustifiable assault was nev r
mads upon the good name of a public
officer. There is nothing in Mr. Hill's
history, either fifteen years ago or
since, which should lead any patriotic
citizen to withhold his friendship
from bim. There were many men,
Republicans as well as well aa Demo
crats, whom, in the days of his power,
Mr. Tweed was wont to use for bi?
own purposes ; bat henever used Mr.
Hill. As a member of the Democrat
ic party Hill supported those meas
ures which. the. party deemed wi-e
and necessary ; and among them there
were at times measures which Mr.
Tweed favored and desired; but in
all of these cases there is not a single
instance in which Mr. Hill acted from
a corrupt motive, or supported any
measure of Tweed's for any other rea
BO'E (?han hie own conviction that it
was for the public interest. This is
demonstrated by a careful study of
bia whole record ; and the people who
really look into these things are sure
to be convinced of il. The reaction
from this attempt of .his enemies will
undoubtedly prove of very great ad
vantage to Mr. Hill. In fact, it forms
one of the reasons why we expect his

" This matter is so important that
it would not be out of tho way for
the State Convention to notify all can?
didates for nomination for the office
of Lieutenant Governor that they are
expected to keep out of the Criminal
Courts, as lawyers, should they be
come the const?ntionat successors of
the Governor. They who are not
willing to assent to this, for the sake
of maintaining the dignity of the of
fice and of keepingit beyond reproach,
are not likely to>be nominated by a
Democratic Convention. We say fur
ther that, while, the objections are not
of the same elliss, we think it unwise
and ill-judged for Senator Butler to
take part in the defence of the Edge
dc ld prisoners, or ol any other per
sons accused of violating the criminal
laws of the State. It is ai?aost im
possible for jurors to avoid being in
fluenced by their knowledge and ap
predation of Gen. Butler's position,
and that influence and position should
not be cast into the seule either in fa
vor of a criminal or against him."
Still Another State Ticket.
Columbia Cor. A wjusta Chronicle.
COLUMBIA, Oct. 17.-The tempora
ry suspension of the "new deal" cry
does not prevent political predictions
of future results. The following tick
et is said to be among the possibi!:
ties: Governor, Hon. John Peter Rich
ardson; Lieutenant Governor, Hon.
D. S. Henderson ; Secretary of State.,
Hon. J. N. Lipscomb; State Treasu
rer, Hon. W. C. Coker; Comptroller
General, Hon. W. E. Stoney ; Attor
ney General, Hon. Stonyarm Wiluon;
Adjutant and Inspector-General, A.
M.Manigault; Superintendent of Ed
ucation, Hon. A. Coward. Rumors
are afloat in some political circles that
a foreign mission will be tendered a
prominent South Carolinian at an
early day, and that this appointment
will result in the promotion of others
now holding high and responsible
State positions. This inlormation
comes so direct and from so reliables
source that I am almost tempted to
name the positions and the men, but
I have learned from experience that
it is better to withhold names when
there ia any doubt of the correctness
of the information, and, as I have not
been able to have those rumors con
firmed, I only mention them in agen
eral way. RICHLAND

A Bad Beat.
Xh.apeaki'ng ol' thV "results of the
Ohio election, tho News and Courier
consid?ra it a "neede'd-Jeesoiu- -The
election waa peculiar in two respects :
Colored votera in large numbors voted
the Democratic ticket, and Prohibi
tionists and Germans in large num
bers voted for the T ublican candi
dates. 3 This is . og the usual
order of thinga, . i . uhe North, the
white vote ia more important by far
than the colored vote, and the new
recruits were not sufficient to count
erbalance the loases by change of
front. There wag a confident expecta
tion that the Prohibitionists who ab
stained from voting for Dr. Leonard
would join the democrats by way of
avenging themselves upon the Repub
licans. The calculators were at fault,
however, and, in spite of the heavi
ness of the Prohibition vote, which
was expected to be drawn mainly
from the Republican ranks, the Demo
crats were unsuccessful.
There will be no lack of explana
tions and excuses. The weather will
come in for a part of the blame, and
the lavish use oi money by the Re
publicans will be alluded to in no
gentle termB. But the Democrats are
usually readier to brave the weather
than the Republicans are, and the
Democrats, it must be confessed, uso
at elections as many dollars-silver
or otherwise-aa they can beg or bor
row. The ruddy tinge imparted to
the canvass by Mr. Sherman was not
sufficient to color the result. There
is something beyond and behind these
things, and it is wisest to state it
frankly in order that the rock ahead
may be avoided at luture elections
Our conviction ip that the Democrats
were defeated in Ohio because, in the
opinion of the voters, they did not
deserve to be continued in power. It
is charged that the Legislature was
corrupt, and so extravagant that in
creased taxation is necessary. The
repeal of the license law resulted in
depriving the counties of a gross rev
enue of two million dollars a year, so
that the incorporated cities were com
pelled to issue bonds to raise money
for the support of the infirmaries and
police It ib undeniable that the Dem
ocracy aigualized their victory last
year by casting out Senator Pendle
ton-the father of civil service reform
and an accomplished gentleman-aud
electing in his Ptead Mr. Payne, who
hus no other distinction than euch as
ia given him by hie auriferous con
nection with the Standard Oil mo
nopoly. The legislative hinges were
Ireely oiled when Mr. Payne was elect
ed. This and the open hostility to
Judge Thurman may well have dis
gusted the quiet and disinterested
Democratic votera of Ohio. It was
evident to them that the State Gov
ernment was run by machinery, and,
in the North and West at least, there
are Democrats who think for them
selves and will not blindly vote tor
party candidates who are unworthy
in character or conduct.
Ohio is a warning. The Democrat
ic defeat in that State will be followed
by Democ;atic defeats in other State?,
unless the Democratic masses make
their wishes and determination known
and gag the loquacious spoilsmen who
sneer at the relorm of the civil ser
vice and hint that Preeident Cleve
land is unfaithful to the Democratic
p?rty. "Mr. Cleveland to day is strong
er than the professional leaders of the
National Democracy, and we firmly
believe that there would have been r.

The Victory or the Republicans ip, in
fact, more of a protest against Demo

Democratic maligning than an indi

the extent of the Republican majority
in Ohio if President Cleveland had

in the manner iu which the offices
