Itself on true principles. At present the
plan .seems to be to wage an absurd fight
against the United States Supreme Court

The manhood of Virginia will m-ver tol?

people to pay their taxes in mom

The roll of the House -till looked ugly
forthe Democrat- yesterday morning, but
the returns during thc day materially al?
tered the li-t. California reported two
out of the six districts and a Democratic
Legislature, which gives as a gain of one
in the House and a senator in the place
Of Miller. North Carolina reported an?
other Democrat, making the delegation
-even Democrat- to two Republicans.
Colorado still held up to tbe Democratic
hopes of gainain that state. The two
doubtful districts in Weal Virginia re?
ported nothing positive. In Minne-.,ta
both -ides claimed thc victory.
In Indiana the indications were that
the Legislature would be Democratic.
ohio reported Campbell (Democrat)
elected our Little.
By this count the Democratic majority
in the Fiftieth i w Ul be eighteen.
