REVIVAL OF GALVESTON.
WHEN the campaign became so exciting as to
attract public attention away from Galveston
that stricken city was so overwhelmed by the
disaster that had befallen her it was doubtful whether
she would recover her business energies in time to
provide her people with work and wages during 'the
rapidly approaching winter. Now that the election i?
over and we can once more give attention to her needs
there will be more than ordinary gratification in
noting that all reports give promise of abundant work
in and around the city and good profits and wages in
all lines of business. *
A recent review of the situation by a special cor
respondent of the New York Journal of Commerce
says: "The wreckage is still abundant in the residence
section, but in the commercial part of the town the
ravages of wind and wave have been for the most part
repaired or concealed. The work of rebuilding has
made the business of dealers in hardware, lumber, paint
and glass much heavier than it was before. But in all
lines of business there has been a recovery that would
not have been supposed possible. The grain ele
vators and the wharves were found to be, less damage!
than was at first supposed. The receipt and shipment
of cotton were resumed a few days after the disaster,
and within a month business in all lines was proceed
ing much as usual."
The people of Galveston deserve the highest com
mendation for the courage and the energy they 'have
exhibited in grappling with the calamity that came
upon them. Praise should also be given to the bank
ers, manufacturers and merchants of other cities, who
in their dealings with Galveston business men have
granted them large credits upon all lines of goods. It
is stated that in the large commercial centers orders
from Galveston have been filled freely and promptly.
Thus the merchants .of the city have been able to
obtain and to supply whatever is needed in the work
of rebuilding. Out of the gloom of the great disas
ter, therefore, there come at least two things of which
the American people may be proud — the energy of the
survivors of the stricken city and the generosity of the
helpers in all parts of thc Union.
/^» AXADA holds her general elections to-day. It
( has been a jingo campaign on the part of the
/ Laurier Ministry. ant^ thc Conservative oppo
sition has met the Government along the whole
line. In many constituencies there was no contest,
and consequently several Liberals and several Conser
\atives have already obtained seats by acclamation.
The number that has been thus fortunate, however, is
comparatively small, and the voting to-day will prob
ably be very close throughout the Dominion.
In the Canadian House of Commons when every
constituency is represented there are 213 members. Of
these Ontario elects 92, Quebec 65, Nova Scotia 20,
New Brunswick 14, Prince Edward Island 5, Mani
toba 7, British Columbia 6, Northwest Territory 4.
In the House which has just been dissolved thi
Laurier Ministry had as supporters 12 irom Nova
Scotia, 5 from New Brunswick, 3 from Prince Ed
ward Island, 50 from Quebec, 45 from Ontario, and
in addition 6 independents from that province who
supported the Ministry on all leading questions of
party policy; 5 from Manitoba, 4 from British Colum
bia and 3 from the Northwest Territory. On some
issues the Ministry had a majority as high as 52, but
generally it was not more than 45.
Following the usual tactics of party campaigning
each side claims that it will make heavy gains in this
election. The fight has not centered upon any par
ticular point, snd consequently the canvass has been
largely personal. Grave charges have been brought
against the Ministry, and it is asserted there have been
many scandals in connection with various departments
of the administration. These probably amount to no
more than thc customary campaign cries which are
heard whenever there is no "paramount issue" to dis
cuss before the people.
If any one question be more prominent than an
other in the canvass it is the famous "preferential
tariff" which the Laurier Ministry carried through
Parliament with thc avowed object of giving Great
Britain in Canadian markets an advantage over ths
United States or any other nation. The tariff ap
pears to have been a failure, and the Conservatives
claim that no preference should be given to British
goods in Canada unless Great Britain reciprocates by
giving Canadian products equal preferences in Brit
Summing up the results of the tariff The Mail and
Empire, a Conservative organ, recently said: "Thus
in the last four years the United States has sold to
Britain $446,853,726 more than it would have sold
had the average of its sales been just equal to the sales
in 1896. To Canada in the same period the United
States has sold $92,952,832 worth more of goods than
it would have sold had its average yearly sales been
just equal to the sales of 1806. That is, in the British
market it has gained $446,853,726 in the four years,
and in the Canadian market $92,952,832. In the mean
time Canada's sales to the United States in that time
have not averaged as high as the figures of 1896. and
fall short by $20,844,^24 of doing so."
There have been more or less evidences of jealousy
between the British and the French races during the
j campaign, but these have not been of a nature to se
riously affect the votir.g. If Laurier win. his victo-y
will be mainly due to the jingro spirit roused by, the
dispatch of Canadian troops to fight for the British
empire in South Africa, and consequently the move
ment toward "imperial federation" will be largely
affected by the result.

PRESIDENT McKINLEY'S personal popularity carried California. With the most
nerveless and least efficient State Committee an<i organization the Republican party
ever had here, and that is saying a good deal, the people jumped over everything
and were swift-footed under every handicap, to run jocund to their duty of sustaining
a President who has sustained them.
Perhaps in no State has there been emitted more calumny against the President
than here. His life, his motives, his public and private character have all been daily
assailed in the Examiner, Calumniator-in-Chief of the Bryanites.
Right gallantly have the people of California answered the traducer and stamped on
his slanders. And they did it of their free and good will, not by the orders or organiza
tion of a lax and discredited State Committee.
Well may national Republicanism pat California on her level head. When a patri
otic duty is to be done, she girds her and goes to it level eyed.
The President had to be sustained and Bryanism had to be rebuked, and she did
both and did both well. All honor to her Republican citizens for it and all honor, too, to
the patriotic Democrats who turned their backs upon the Populist Bryan and voted for
McKinley and their country against the world.
The Republicanism of this State is greatened and bettered by the result. The party
will not permit itself hereafter to be used as a dunghill to sprout political mushrooms,
but will take its own affairs in hand, send boastful corruption and incompetence to the
rear and invite its real worthies to the front. I
THE ALASKAN STABLE
? Sit was one of the labors of Hercules to cleanse
/ \ the Augean stable*; so it will be the duty of
1 * President McKinley and Congress to recon
struct and reform the official situation in Alaska. An
odor comes from the conduct of the court at Nome
which is worse than that ot canned beef.
The chief promoter and actor in this iniquity is one
Alexander McKenzie. who is now a prisoner in this
city in the custody of the United States Marshal and
a suppliant J'»r relief and clemency both before the
Supreme Court of tht United States and the United
States Circuit Court of Appeals for the Xinth Cir
From accounts deemed authentic and trustworthy
which have lately been received directly from Nome
there seems to be no reasonable doubt that a state of
aliairs has this year existed in that territory which
would have «-j=ed the organization of a Vigilance
Committee iii this State during its early history. It
consisted, in brief, of a combination and conspiracy
of nearly every Federal official in the Nome distric:
except the clerk of the court, whose fairness and in
tegrity ?.re vouched for by all who have been inter
viewed, and including the Judpe. one Arthur H.
Koycs, his stenographer, the Court Commissioner,
the United States Attorney and his deputy, and others
of less importance.
It was .1 01 trust or combination of extraordin
ary proportions and novel in character.
A corporation was formed in Arizona called the
Alaska Gold Mining Company, with its office n
New York and its field of operations in Alaska. Its
guiding spirit and patron saint was Alexander Ml-
Kentie, a political bully and boss, and sometime resi
dent of Xonh Dakota.
From the S15.000.000 of the capita! stock of this
compar4 it is related that McKenzie distributed, or
acrecl to distribute, some $3,000,000 in amount.-.
ranging from $50,000 to S^oo.ooo each, to various per
soris who were to back and assist in the enterprise.
Some of these parties were to set up claims to mines
in Alaska, and if those in possession would not sur
render in whole or in part to begin suits and get
Judge Xoyes to appoint McKenzie or some substitute
a receiver to take and work the properties until 3
satisfactory settlement was made or a trial and judg
jr.ent by this same Jr.dgc. The proof seems conclu
sive that Judge Xoyes arrived at Nome on a Satur
day in last July and on the following Monday he ap
pointed McKenzie receiver of the most valuable mines
in that locality, ;;nd only required a nominal bond as
So indecent was the haste and so flagrant the abu-e
of the process of the court that in some cases receivers
•were appointed and took possession several days be
fore the complaints were filed. It is estimated thit
McKenzie had actually gotten hold of nearly half a
million in gold dust under this receiver process of
working before he ran up against the Federal courts
of th:s circuit.
The Federal officials at Nome were aiding and
abetting this ;vorse than robbery. Business in the
district was paralyzed, and but for the United States
troops violence and bloodshed must inevitably have
followed this abuse ard prostitution of the court.
We will not dwell en 'the details of this infamy, the
proof of which this paper will undertake to furnish
<.r. any proper occasion, but consider briefly how such
a c t:-:te of affairs was made possible.
Three United States Senators, Carter of Montana,
Davis of Minnesota and Hansbrough of North Da
l:ota. are mentioned as the political friends and back
er of McKenzie. the sponsors of nearly all these dis
honest officials in Alaska, whose appointments they
cither recommended or procured, and if the word of
one of the principal plaintiffs in whose suit McKen
¦Ac was appointed a leceiver is to be taken, these Sen
ators are also largely interested in this same Alaska
Gold Mining Company.
God help the Fiiioinos if the same class of officials
is to' he installed in those islands when a civil govern
ment is established.
It is whispered that McKenzie has thrown up his
Kinds to some of the parties who had the pluck and
courage to fight him and has agreed to surrender up
his plunder to them and procure the suits to be dis
rrnssed. We hope this will have no effect upon the
••ourt in disposing of the contempt proceedings, be
cause it seems clear that he not only flagrantly dis
obeyed the writs of the courts but united with Judge
Xoyes and some of his attorneys in speaking of their
Judges with the greatest disrespect. Fortunately the
people have unbounded respect and confidence in all
the Federal courts on this coast south of Alaska. In
California. Nevada. Oregon. Washington and Idaho
the Federal Judges are pre-eminent for their- integ
rity and fitness, and the public generally will rejoice
to see this man McKenzie so dealt with, if his con
tempt be legally established, as to afford a warning
A telegram from Washington, represented to be
from Senator Davis, ha* been recently shown in this
city by one of the friends of McKenzie stating that
matters were all right at that end. This probably re
fers to an expected demand for an investigation by
Congress of the Alaska situation and the belief on
the part of McKenzie's friends that they have a suffi
cient political pull to prevent it.
It ;« to or hoped r.nd expected that Congress will
speedily give this matter the fullest investigation and

IT WOULD have been a painful surprise to Americans and to the world if the Presiden
tial election had ended in other result than the re-election of President McKinley.
After all is said and sung, governments have to do with the material welfare of
the people. This is not saying that legislation can create values, or make something out
of nothing, as Mr. Bryan has always contended it can, but it means that Gov
ernment may leave the people free of artificial limitation to pursue their vocations, earn
their bread and make their profits, and it. may impose or remove obstacles to their
progress. The unexampled advance made by this country under President McKinley's
administration is due to removal of the handicap of free silver and the fear of Bryanism,
as well as to the sound policies of the Government.
With our commerce suddenly swollen to larger proportions than that of the com
bined world, and with a market and a demand for our surplus which make certain the
steady employment of American labor as far ahead as one can. see; with an increasing de
mand for everything that we produce and the flow hithenvard of the world's capital to
settle its balance of trade, making it necessary for other nations to come and borrow
back the money they have paid for our goods — with all these conditions the defeat of
President McKinley would have seemed to indicate the indifference of our .people to
their material welfare and would have encouraged our distanced commercial rivals to
hope that by our stumbling they may overtake us.
Happily all of these expectations are defeated. The American people stand by the
public credit and vote for private prosperity. They want liberty regulated by law, and
a full dinner pail, rather than rhapsody, anarchy and an empty belly. The pied piper of
the Platte has piped his last, and not a rat has run nor a child followed.
. The country may now 'go about its business in peace and security, and our com
merce may safely entrench itself on the fields it has conquered, for there will be no re~

in the Phillpnines and the neighboring
seas constantly, and we must do the same.
In the event of war our outposts— the
Philippines. Hawaii. Porto Rico— would
invite attack, unless attack seemed hope
less. The fleet which It is proposed to
build would be unnecessary if we had not
expiinded. For home defense fortifica
tions have hitherto been the chief reli
ance; but now we have far away ports to
RICHMOND TIMES— If fam© be based
on pre-eminence in some great calling and
if achievements be recognized by the
whole world, Stonewall Jackson, the
American, is more famous than Gilbert
Stuart or Asa Gray. But th.en. fame is
not to be caught and shut up in any bulla
lng, not even in the temple built for it in
ST LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT— The
X'nlted States, in aggregate wealth, pass
ed the United Kingdom years ago, which
had led until that time, and this years
figures are likely to show that the per
capita wealth is now also greater here
than it is there. The exhibit, both in pop
ulation and business activities, of the
United States during the past- ten years
Is a story of expansion In which every
American can feel a thrill of pride.
CINCINNATI COMMERCIAL. TRIB
UNE—There Is on all sides a noticeable
demand for college-educated men. We do
not believe that a college education can
do everything for a young man. but It Is
a great factor of intellectual development
and character culture for the great ma
jority of young people enabled to enjoy
its benefits. ,
ATLANTA CONSTITUTION — Other
men, following in the footsteps of An
drew Johnson, now claim credit for that
which he first fought. He will ba known
to the future as the President who. In
the hour of th<j nation's madness,
saved it from Itself, and thua became the
Defender, as the Immortal Webster was
the Expounder, of the constitution.
PHILADELPHIA TIMES— The Jockey
has his uses, and If making John Bull sit
up is one of his faculties he has gained
new values to his countrymen.
NXW YORK TRXBTTNE — With r»vcta«r
stables owned and racecourses controlled
by men of independent means, of char
acter and taste, who love the sport sim
ply as a sport, and who seek the im
provement of the breed of the noblest of
quadrupeds, horse racing is a humane,
honorable and honest thing, worthy of
the regard of people of character and
culture. With the stables and courses
conducted by mercenary speculators who
care nothing for sport and nothing for
horses, but everything for the dollar*
they can make, and who conduct the
whole business as a business of rather
shady practices, horse racing is no longer
worthy of the name of a sport, and Is
uncommonly lucky if it deserves any
better name than that of gambling.
CHICAGO TRIBVXE-If the South In
not ready to sacrifice its race prejudices
and establish eome modus vlvendl with
the colored people It must expect that
they will leave whenever they can. If
the farmers lose their help, which la
equivalent to losing their crops, they will
have onlv themselves to blame. Race
friction does not pay in harvist time.
NEW YORK HERALD-The admin
istration at Washington admits the de
sirability and value of arbitration, but
thinks the way to It will hardly b« clear
until It appear* that diplomacy cannot
reach an a^rreement. There Is som« forc«
in this. At the same time. It Is to ti
noted that the situation In Peking Is
critical, and may become perilous by pro
BROOKLYN EAGLE— It Is lnter*»tln»
to note "that of the total Increase. In pop
ulation In the past ten years nearly two
thirds of It has been du« to the excess of
births over deaths and only a little more
than one-third ha* come from Immigra
tion. This healthy condition of the races
here Is encouraging to those who believe
that the day of the decline of the Teat
ness of America is long distant. If th®
birtbs and deaths were about, ecraal, as
they are in France, one might well fear
for the future.

America a quick competitor. A commer
