Taking tho Bearing?.
Tho swooping success of tho Domo
nrftts In tho latO election WOO OS unex
pected as it W08 unprecedented. Tito
most satisfactory returns show that tho
llouso of Kojprosontativos lu tho Fifty
second CongroBs will contain 189 Demo
crats, 02 Republicans, and 50 Allionce
inen.
Tito present Republican majority {n
the .'Senate is fourteen, including tho four
now Senators from Idaho and Wyoming.
Anti-Republican Legislatures havo boon
elected in Illinois,. Kansan, Now York,
Now Hampshire, Wisconsin and South
Dakota, which will oleol Sonators the
Coming winter, Thora seems t bo a
little doubt about Now Hampshiro; tho
others seem assurod. Should Now Hamp
shire have nu anti Republican majority,
Uve Democrats will roplaco nve Republi
cans aftor Marah 4, 1801, making a dif
ference of ton votes, reducing tho Repub
lican majority to four.
Thus it is that tho Republicans oven
now need sorely tho count of Senatorial
noses from tho now States admitted by
thom last winter, since these Senators
alone provont, a Democratic majority ill
tho Sotiato.
Tho Northoru and Western Dem?crata
mado a clear gain of GO Congressmen,
while tho Southern Democrats gained 21,
and tho former did tho hardest fighting
for tlitir victories, and aro entitled to tho
highest praise and tho bestowal of tho
greatest honors. In tho 52d Congress tho
Northern and Southern Democrats will
bo about equally divided, counting Mary
land, Kentucky and Missouri ns Southern
State"*
: \Tho political responsibility resting on
tho Representativos from tho South is
gloater than it has bcon for years, and
tho futuro good of our party and country
demands that thoy and all of us learn
tho lesson nt once. Such a degreo of
prudence and conservatism must bo
shown as will si ay up tho hands of our
party associates in tho North, East and
West, (heat inroads havo been mado
into tho llopubliean rniik in nearly alt
tho States. Tako as illustration tho 75,
000 voters in Pennsylvania who declined
to endorso tho methods of Quay; tho
25,000 men in Massachusetts who en
dorsed tito pluck and statesmanship of
Wm. E. KiiBsoll ; tho 10,000 mon in Now
Hampshiro who protested against tho
ltopublicanism of Ulair and Wm. E.
Chandlor; tho 50,000 men in Ohio who
refused to sanction such a system of
itemized robbery as tho McKinley bill,
and tho 18(1,000 mon in Minnesota, Michi
gan and Wisconsin who havo reversed
their delegations in Congross. This
shows tho roBorvo powor of tho people
ill a most encouraging light.
It is evident that tho Alliauco has con
tributed in a very largo moasuro to tho
crushing dofoat of tho Republican party.
lt is almost certain that a largo majority
of tho Alliaiicemon elected to Congress
..viii vote steadily with tho Democracy, and
when they could not elect thoir own man,
thoy contributed to tho oioction of a
Democrat. Thus lt hecomos tho Domo
eratic party to study tho suggestions of
tho Farmers' Alliauco for tho Iud tennent,
of tho financial and other interests of
tho people. It might bo very unfortu
nate for tho Democracy should tho Alli
auco fall away before tho Presidential
election in 1802, because of discourage
ment, disappointment, or failure to
obtain in somo measure tho relief for
which tito farmers have banded them
selves together.
Lot us hopo that in wisdom and con
servatism Die Democratic leaders may
not bo found wanting.

T
Tho Charleston j/Vetcs and (fourier
has tho following strong artiolo on
tho political situation as detormlnod
by tho rocont election :
THK HPKAKKItSHH' OK THK FIFTY*
HKOONO 00NGKK88.
Tho Washington correspondent Of
tho New York Herald, in his lotter
which was published tho morning
after tho election, says that "tho
Domoornts having undoubtedly onr
ried the next House, tboro will bo
tho same scramble for tho high offices
that took place at the beginning of
the 48th Congress," and names tho
probable candidates for scvoral of
tho moro important offices, especially
that of Spoaker. Tho death of Mr.
Randall and Mr. Cox, and tho with
drawal of Mr. Carlisle to another
Hold of activity, wo aro told, loavo
tho practical choico for tho Speaker
ship limited to parliamentarians liko
Mr. Crisp, of Georgia; Mr. Mills, of
Texas; Mr. MoMillin, of Tennessee;
Mr. Breckenridge, of Kentucky; Mr.
Hatch, of Missouri, and Mr. i/jmim,
of Indiana-"gcntlemon who hereto
fore have bad an oxpericnoo ns party
lenders," and all of whom have made
good records in tho fight for tariff
reform, and against tho tyranny of
tho majority in the present House.
Tho contest for tho other offices
mentioned by tho correspondent,
namely, those of dork, postmaster,
doorkeeper and sorgonnt-at-arms, is
of comparatively little consequence;
tho "scramble" will concern only the .
candidatos and thoir personal frionds
in tho House, and it will matter but
littlo to tho Democratic pa *ty what
candidatos aro oleotod or what part
of tho country they hail from.
Thc caso is very different with
regard to tho Speakership. It may
matter very much to tho Democratic
party who is chosen to till that posi
tion and what part of tho country ho
hails from. Wo need not go into
this question at any length, as it is
very well undorstood alroady by
every intelligent and disinterested
Domoorat in tho country. Messrs.
Mills, MoMillin, Breckenridge, Crisp
and Hatch aro Southern men, and
while any ono of them would till tho
Speaker's chair with honor and
credit to himself, and doubtless as
acceptably to bis political opponents
in tho Ilouso ns any Northern Demo
crat in tho same position, tho elec
tion of any ono of them would be
an experiment which tho Democratic
majority in tho 52d Congress cannot
afford to make.
That majority will owe its exist
ence and its overwhelming strength
to tho fact that the recent campaign
was not conducted on sectional lines,
or decided by sectional issues. Nearly
half of its members will represent
Northern States. It, would bc to
tho best interests of the South and
of tho Democratic party that this
element should practically control
the organization of tho House and
take tho lead in all its legislation.
Wc think that it would be a mistake
to place any ono of tho Southern
members who have been named even
at tho head of the Committee on
Ways and Moana._The fa/Uj ftl9&yM
Southerner held that position two
years ago, and that so many Southern
men were on the committee with
him, gave tho Re blican orators
and organs the opportunity they
wanted to denounce the Democratic
tariff reform bill as a distinctively
''Southern" measure, and by their
appeals to sectional feeling and the
fears and pockets of thc representa
tives of Northern industrial interests
they defeated Mr. Cleveland's re-elec
tion, secured the present Republican
majority in thc House and postponed
the triumph of tariff reform princi
ples for four years, if not longer.
Whether tho postponement shall
bo longer than four years depends
now in part upon the conduct of
legislation in tho next House, and in
a larger part upon who shall be held
responsiblo by the country for the
character of that legislation. If a
Southern man should be elected
Speaker, his election would bo re
garded by the independent voters in
the Northern States, and by the
Republican voters who have voted
wi i h them for Democratic Congress
men this week, as evidence that the
influence of tho South is to predomi
nate in tho 52d Congress. The
Republican newspapers and Con
gressmen and stump speakers will
take care to foster this impression by
every possible means during tho next
two years, and especially during the
next Presidential campaign. What
th.- result would probably bo every
intelligent Democrat can answer for
himself.
Tboro is no room to doubt that it
would be to drive off a large number
of the voters in the Northern States
who voted for the Democratic ticket
this week-many of them probably
for the first time in their lives---and
so to endanger tho success of the
party in the decisive contest two
years hence.
Wbother wo can afford to take
this risk is a question which thc
Southern Democrats in tho 52d Con
gress may weil consider very seri
ously, and if they decido that we
cannot afford it, their duty to the
party and tho country will be per
fectly plain. They will insist on tho
election of a Northern Doui?orat as
Speaker, and the appointment of a
Northern Democrat to tho control of
every committee which shall be
charged willi the duty of shaping
political legislation. This will bo a
considerable sacrifice for the South
ern loaders to make, of course, but
with the lessons and experiences of
tho last Presidential campaign and
of tho last session to instruct them,
they will not hesitate to make it
unless they hold the success of their
party to be of less consequence than
tho temporal gratification of their
personal ambition,

[From tho Atlanta Constitution.]
While the Soul h and the honest
and pntriotio p?ople of tho whole
country aro rejoicing over tho over
whelming defeat of Republicanism,

Northwest and tho importance of
t??o resulta tit?.-: hayo boon accom
plished through its agoney.
Tho AlUnnoo finds ready and ea
?or opponents among . disgruntled
) 01 noorat ?, and its, mission Eas, been
made tho target of misrepresenta
tion, but when that organization is
measured by what it lias accord
plished in tho Ron?biioan Staten, hy
tho power and influence it has ex
erted in politics, its importauoo to
tho South cannot bo overestimated.
Tho ioooid of thc o>T^i?aaiIoii iii
the eampnign that has just closed is
remarkable for tho unity, harmony
and porsistonoo with which it has
pressed its purposes. In tho South
it has practically merged itself in
tho Democratic party. In the West,
the stronghold of tho Republicans,
the Alliance did not mergo with tho
Democrats. It did hotter. It made
a squarcout fight of its own, and
aidod tho Democrats by crippling
tho Republicans.
Take, for iustanoo, tho Stato of
Kansas, where tho Republicans lind
a majority of 84,000, largor than
that of Pennsylvania. It was to op
pose and cvercamo this tromondous
majority that tho Alliance was or
ganised in that Stato. It could not
join thc Dcmoorats, for thou tho old
sootionnl cry would have boon raised,
but it went into tho State with a
platform of principles practically
Democratic in .heir origin and pur
pose, and in a very short time revo
lutionized tho Republican party.
This'rcsult cnn only bp ?ppreoiated
at its full worth by tho people of tho
South.
It is a noteworthy fact that the i ^
Ropublican farmers of Kansas, as te
soon as thoy had imbibed tho Demo- m
oratio principles of tho Allianeo, bo- 1)!
carno exceedingly bitter against their
old. party, and thoy have managed to
demoralize and defeat it. Thus tho
Alliance has accomplished in Kansas
in a campaign of thirty days what
tho Domocrnts could not havo ac
complishcd in a enmpnign of thirty
years. To tho Republican farmers
of . Kansas thA very name "Demo
crat'' has boon iOr moro than twenty
live years the synonym of "robol,"
"traitor" and "coppornoad." It has
been tho koy to unlock the store
houso of their sectional prejudices
It is a pity that this should bo so,
and yet, in discussing rosults, it con
stitutes a fundamental fnct thnt enn
not be ignored.
Tho Alliance movement, howovor,
lins served to divert these Ropubli
can farmors from their war memo
ries and their sectional prejudices,
rind thoy have nt Inst discovered thnt
the prncticnl Democracy, which is
tho bnsis und strength of tho Alli
ance platform, is hotter suited to
their condition, their hopes mid their
aspirai ions than ' tho bitterness and
strifo of Ropublican partisanship.
Their point of view was so changed
that, when Colonel Livingston, of
Qeorgia, and Colonel Polk, of North
Carolina, Democratic Allianccmon,
wont into Kansas and took part in
thc campaign, their speeches were
cheered to tho echo by audiences
that had for twenty-five years and
rrp**f?j been voting tho RcimblicaiL
ucKeVJstraightout und without devia
tion. Thc canvass made by Messrs.
Polk and Livingston was necessarily
brief, hut they crowded a good deal
of effective work into thc space of a
few days, and there cnn bc no doubt
that thc speeches they made did a
great deal of good.
Wc have alluded to the amazing
results in Kansas merely to show the
nature and extent of tho Alliance
movement among the Republican
farmers in thc West and Northwest,
lt- shows beyond question thnt the
Alliance has a political mission in
that region. Its mission, and one
that it is carrying out with a success
that has no pnrnllcl in the history of
our politics, is to teach thc Rcpubli
can farmers to think for themselves
and to discuss politics freely, fairly
and unbiased by sectional prejudices.
Some of our Democratic friends
in Georgia arid clsewhoro deem it to
be their duty to antagonize tho Alli
ance movement. It would be
for thc whole country, in our opinion,
if all Domocrnts-especially South
ern Democrats-would work in har
mony with thc Alliance, and thus
aid it in redeeming thc Rep blican
farmers of thc West and Northwest
from the evil effects of a narrow and
blind.ng spirit of sectionalism.
Thc Tickets Printed Wrong.
COI.UMUIA, S. C., November 10.
Congressman Thomas Ii. Miller, col
ored Republican from the Seventh
District, who was seated in place of
Elliott (Democrat) just before the
adjournment of Congress, and who
received a majority of the votes cast
at tho recont oloetion, will be counted
out by the canvassing board. Thc
cause of Millor's loss of his seat in
Congress is that ho failed to have
his tickets printed upon tho paper
and in the exact form and size pro
scribed by thc State law regulating
elections. Tho law prescribes that
the tickets shall bo of plain white
paper, five inches long and two and
one-half inches wide, and contain
nothing supcrlluous, or they will not
bo legal. Miller's tickets were
printed on a brownish paper, smaller
than tho prescribed si/.e, and con
tained "Por Representativo" instead
of "Representative," in tisis caso be
ing considered as improper as on thc
tickets for Governor in Connecticut.
Kllory M. Brayton, who also ran on
thc Republican ticket, but who fell
far behind Elliott, made tho same
error In having his tickets printed.
Kl Mott's tickets were correct, but ho
fell far behind Miller. Congressman
Miller will probably make a little
light against being deprived of hi?
seat,
