*The Democratic wave of success
which began with the election of a
Democratic Governor in Maine had
an even more striking illustratIOn in
the greatly reduced Republican mai
orities in such States as Rhode Is
land. Pennsylvania and Iowa taan &D
the Democratie victories in New
York. Ohio and New Jersoy. In each
State the Democratic gains are to be
attributed. Arst, of course, to one
large and general movement; but in
each case also there were spectria
contributing causes. Broadly defn
ed. the general cause was simply dis
satisfaction with the Republican par
"But specially. the high tariff le
believed to be one of the chief
causes of the high cost of living; th
people believed that a substantia?
downward revision was promised by
the Republican party: the Payne-Al
drich bill was not, in fact, accepted
as such a measure; the attempts or
the Adminlstration to hold the bli
up to admiration not only did no'
oonvi.nce but did irritate its critics.
"The unhappy Ballinger-Pinlchot
controversy, the diplomatic scand'!
over the appointment of a Chinese
Minister, the political revolt agains
Canonism-these and other matter'
left in the popular mind a feeling
that the Republican party was deal
lug weakly with grave public inter
ests, and in a measure overshadowec
the praise deserved for the actuaz
constructive measures passed.

popular feeling for progressive legis

"It must be remembered that the
moral revolt against boss rule and
legislative corruption in New York.
for instance, was a total different
thing from the insurgent and at

ly the chief result is that we shalt
have a Democratic House of Repre
sentatives with a majority of nearly
or quite 60. as against a Republican
majority of 43 in the present Con

in the senate Is reduced from 25 tc

years we shall have a Republicaoi

"The result in New York is prac
