Hill has not yet formally acceptod
the nomination for governor of New
York, but it ia understood that be will
and with a reunited democracy he ought
to bare plain sailing to the gubernatorial
mansion. The Senator took occasion
in bis Bpeech before the convention to
compliment and indorse Mr. Cleveland's
administration and the president has
spokon favorably of tho nominco and
the nomination. The bloody hatchet
seema to be buried and the two great
New Yorkers are passengers on the same
boat again. While it is a higher honor
to be governor of a great State, a seat in
the IT. S. Senate seems to be the ambition
of most governors. Senator Hill
haa been twice the Chief Magistrate of
the Empire State, first by the election of
Mr. Cleveland to the presidency, he being
lieutenant governor at that time, and
second by election. Both ambitions baring
been gratified, the Senator, if elect
ed, will be in better position than ever to
gratify his greater ambition to be the
democratic nominee for president of the
United States. That he will be the most
formidable candidate, if elected, is conceded,
so if be regards his chances for
victory in November as even fair, it is
safe to wager that be will accept the
nomination so enthusiastically and
unanimously thrust upon him.
Statistics from the office of the Commissioner
of Internal revenue are enough
to open the eyes of others than the prohibitionists
to the great and growing evil
of strong drink. Last year the U.
83,777,187 gallons of whisky and
brpndy. A conservative estimato of the
amount consumed !b 37,000,000 gallons,
equal to 6,090,000,000 drinks, counting 03
drinks to the gallon, for which $009,000,-000
were paid, $50,000,000 more than the
entire appropriations of the lost Congress,
This is a 100 drinks a year to every man-woman
and child in the country,and the
prohibitionists, who are not supposed to
drink. The beer consumption is fully as
astonishing. It is stated that 31,002,043
barrels, making 12,785,169,200 glasses,
and costing passed down the
throats of our people, equal to 220 glasses
for every inhabitant, little and big.
Here then are a billion and a quarter of
dollars spent for intoxicants, which men
put in their mouths to steal away their
senses. No wonder the true lover of bis
race is alarmed over the future of tbo
country and is taking every step to curtail
tbo sway of a demon, which destroys
bouI and body and makes paupers of
millions of people.
Gkoiioe Denny nearly always succeeds
in getting bis big feet in his large mouth,
whenever he appears in spectacular for
the benefit of tho gallery gods. His speech
accepting the republican nomination for
Congress in tho 7th district was such a
conglomeration of misstatements and so
great an exhibition of ignorance that the
Courier Journal is led to suggest that instead
of seeking to go to Congress he
should direct his steps to a good common
school. But good advice is lost on
Mr. Denny. In his estimation, what be
doesn't know isn't worth knowing. Vain
as a peacock and filled with self-adulation,
he imagines that to roar like a bull
is tbe highest mark of an orator and that
therefore in comparison with Demosthenes,
tbe ancient orator is not in it.
The democratic party deserves
gratitude of the entire country for
reform it has made in the pension department.
Tbe total disbursements for
tbe last fiscal year was $137,636,081, a
clear saving of $25,000,000. Tbe party of
the people believes in pensioning every
worthy veteran who needs it, but it is
eternally opposed to turning tbe country
over, treasury and all, to tbe camp followers
and coffee coolers. Further reform
is needed and tbe good work will
.be kept up till every trifling fellow too
lazy to work and who is living on the
bounty of the government be did 'not
serve in war and is a parasite on in
peace, is mado to earn his living by the
sweat of bis brow.
On all sides are evidences of returning
prosperity. City merchants say their
trade is larger than for years, goods are
lower, money is more plentiful and Bigns
accumulate that tbe calamity bowler
will soon be out of a job. With the return
of better times, those who have
been short sighted enuugh to charge tbe
financial stringency to tbe democratic
administration, instead of to tho vicious
legislation of tho republicans, will come
to their Benses, and tbe tidal wave which
threatened to sweep us rom tbe earth
will be averted.

What the Democratic Uongress Did.
It repealed the McKlnley Law.
It greatly reduced Taxation.
It made living cheaper.
It made all money taxable.
It taxed surplus incomes.
It restored freedom of elections.
It reduced public expenditures.
It declared undying hostility to trusts
and monopolies organized for the oppression
of the people.
Considering that tbo democrats camo
into power at a time of panic, when bus
iness was at a stand Btill, when labor
was unemployed and when tho treasury
was empty, this is a most remarkable record
and fully warrants Speaker Crfop in
sayiug, that while they have not uone
all they bad hoped to do, the democrats
had dono moro in the last year to redress
tho wrongs of the people and moro for
their relief than ever was dono by any
partytin ihe same length of time in 'any
country under the sun.
Tite republicans in tho 7th district are
making a bold bid for the support of
Breckinridge's friends. At Denny's suggestion
no ticket for county officers will
be nominated in .tare tie, because a majority
of the democratic nominees aro
Breckinridgo men, and other baita are
being thrown out. It will be all love's
labor lost, however. A large majority of
the colonel's friends are as true to de
mocracy as they are to him, and thero
will be little or any sulking in camp.

for bis services in war and in peace,
