Concewno to the Republican party all it
claims, both houses of the forty-sixth con
rrcss will contain a Democratic majority.
The senate will stand thirty-one Republi
cans, forty-three Democrats, otic Indepen
dent, and one doubtful. Granting to the
Republicans the co-operation of both the
Independent and doubtful member, the
Democrats will still have a majority of ten.
In the house the Republicans will have one
hundred and twenty-eight members; Inde
pendents seven, and the Democrats one hun

the Democrats will have a majority of nine

these dissatisfied Democrat do great in
justice to Mr. Allen In charging him with
meanness or underhanded work. He is not
amenable to such a charge, for Mr. Allen
knew that Mr. Hartzcll had deelured, nt
tho time of his second nomination and
since then, that he would not be a Candi
da to for a third term. Wo heard Mr. H.
say the same thing. It wan, In fact, tho
general understanding among leading Dem
ocrat that Mr, II. would not osk and did
not desire a third term.
llo.v. Osc.vu TmtNKii is elected to con
gress from the first Kentucky district, over
Hon. L. 8. Trimble, tho regular Democratic
nominee. For u number of years Mr.
Turner has been fighting the convention
aystem in his district, nnd has finally
achieved what Beemed to lie the greatest
aim of his life u seat in congress, lie is
a Democrat of tho most uncompromising
sti'ipc, and was elected by Democratic votes.
This last fact enforces the suspicion that he
was not wholly without grounds oti which
to do battle. In other words, his success
argues that there is something obnoxious if
not rotten in the convention system, as man
ipulated in Mr. Turner's district. Other
wiao it seems almost impossible that ten
thousand Demon uts would ignore the
usages of their parly and vote for a man

ItKiTin.KWX zealots boast noisily of th:.'ir
triumphant victory last Tuesday. As it
leaves the Democrats with a good working
majority in both houses of congress, it
seems almost cruel to remind the crowing
chaps that taking the October and Novem
ber elections as a whole the Republican
party has gained just nothing at all. In
. the October elections they lost ten members
of the house, In the November election
they lost Hire;' members in South Carolina,
one in Louisiana and one in North Carolina,
making a total of fifteen. At the election
on Tm-s lay last th; gains of the Republi
cans were (tiuless official returns

us follows: In New York five members, in
Connecticut two, in New Jersey two, and
one each in Massachusetts, M tryland, Vir
ginia, Michigan and Wisconsin, making,
ail togiTier, fourteen members. Consequent
ly their iinni'-ns;' victory of Tuesday fails
to make good the lueses they sustained by
the rout in October. The footings-up show
toe Democrats one ahead, with a chance of
one or two more. Taking the two elec
tions lo.'elher it is the Democrats who
should bring out the roosters, not the Re
publicans. Tin: reforms wrought by the Democratic
party in New York, during the past four
years, should have insured the success of
tht paity ticket in that State by a majority
of one hundred thousand votes; and, but
for thcslianieful wrangles and differences
between the Democrats of New York city,
would have worked out a complete triumph
last Tuesday. When Samuel J. Tilden
look the gubernatorial chair, he found that,
under Republican rule, the people had been
paying the enormous sum of 1.).727.4S2.()0
in the shape of State taxes. He
commenced his work of reform and
in a single year cut down the amount to
$7,70,181, saving to the people, in a short
twelve-months, nearly $8,000,000. And so
of the Democratic and Republican parties'
as repr-sented in Congress. The Republi
cans of the Forty-second and Forty-third
Congress's made appropriations aggregat
ing fi;."i.0;l:l,4oo, The Democratic Forty
fourth and Forty-fifth Congresses made ap
propriatinns amounting to$:j84,49r,yo;i, a net
saving to the people of the United States of
f!M),5:i7.,VJ7. The Republicans, propped
up in power in the SouthVrn States by bay
onets, ran the debts of those Comm. in
wealths up from $29,0(10,000 to $240,01)0,.
000, ami stole the people's money, These
facts sp'-nk eloquently of the reality of
Democratic economy, and prove the impos
sibility of iidmiiiistra'.ive reform under Re
TlliaiCSSON OF TIIK ELKCTION.
As is usual after a defeat, the Democrat
ic papers of the country indulge in wise
speculations as to what results would have
been brought about if the leaders of the
parly had done this thing anil refrained
from doiny sone-iliing else. We are some
what surprised to sec w able u journal as
the St. Louis Republican take the ground
that tin Republican fraud that placed
Hayes ia i lu- presidential chair, pave the
Democratic parly the largest amount of po
litical capital ever given to any patty in
this country, and that it was simply party
sttiiide to in flect to employ it. "Nothing
more wn- needed," continues the Repuhli-
j can, "to insure it sweeping victory than
a propir utilization of that capital."
11 id the struggle been a presidential one,
Ihel'ri.ud might have been Utili. d to ome
(fleet ; but as the contest was one in which
aigiuui'iit, and not denunciations was the
chosen weapon of both parties, and us the
re-uilt of the election could have only a con
tingent bearing on the next presidential
contest, there vuw no lining place for the
'ft and" to come in.
Honest men w ill not deny tbat tlto seat
ing of Hayes in Tildcn'g place,' was a groat
outrage upon popular rights; but the recent
developments that cover the cypher tele
grams have thrown a shade of suspicion
upon certain prominent Democrats which
unscrupulous Republicans would not hesi
tate to magnify into a mountain of crime.
If. wc liud called tho Republican party
"pot," lu that respect, they would linvo re
sponded "kettle;" and the matter being i
"by-gone," against tho resurrection of all
of which the Democratic party protests most
vehemently, we do not bco that we should
have made much headway had wo utiliz
Wo agree with tho Republican that tho
Democratic party was not in a condition to
wage successful battle on the financial
question. Heforo that question was
brought in issue there should have been
unity of idea and purpose. Jint such was
not the case. In one State, as the Republi
can truthfully aflirms, the Democratic party
favored hard money; in another it favored
soft money. I a one State they advocated
inflation; in one State this remedy for our
financial evils, in another that. There was
no organized party action; nothing but in
dependent and indiscriminate fighting ail
along tho line. The wonder is that this
bushwhacking gtrulegy did not bring ap
propriate and richly-merited chastisement.
With the Republicans we hope the Dem
ocracy will learn wisdom from experience,
and hive a better plan of campaign in
last) than in 1878. If they do not, their
chances of success in the presidential con
test are small indeed. There must be thor
ough unity of action; no division of forces;
no riding of local hobbies; no advocating of
both sides of the same question; no running
after false gods. The enemy is wide awake
and ready to seize and improve every ad
vantage Democratic disorganization may
offer. Tlloso who think there will be a
Democratic 'walk over' in 1 SSO are fools
or blind. It promises to be the bitterest
and most desperate struggle in the annals
of American politics. The party which litis
had twenty years' unbroken lease of power
will not fall'to pieces and give up the ghost
at the blowing of r.ims'horns. It will con
test every inch of ground, and die, if die it
must, sword in hand and in the last ditch.
If there are any first-class Democratic gen
erals, the sooner they come together in a
council of war and decide where tuid how
the appro.'.chi.-ig battle shall be fought, the
l' ttcr for the patty prospects. Wc cannot

The defeat of Butler in Massachusetts is
a defeat in tho darling object of his life,
llu wanted abovo all things to be governor
of that commonwealth, that his name might
be rescued from tho questionable moral
status in which it stands, by being placed
alongside tho names of a long line of dis
tinguished and honored executives.
He has sought his object with a
pertinacity all his own, and by means
which no governor of Massachusetts
ever resorted to, nnd it seemed at one time
that he would achieve it. But ho has been
beaten by tho Republican candidate which
is well enough, for the state is Republican,
and there is now some hope that lie will
now sink, exhausted and disheartened, info
silence. Butier is a product of Massa
chusetts Republicanism, and the parent de
serves some punishment, perhaps, for Inflict
ing such a progeny on the country. Still,we

Col. Hubert (1. Ini rioll's Huston Speech.
While the government cannot create gold
nnd silver, while it cannot by its fiat make
money, it can furnish facilities for tlie crea
tion of wealth. It can aid in the distribu
tion of products and in the distribution of
men; it can aid in the opening of new terri
tories; it can aid great and vast enterprises
that cannot be accomplished by simply in
dividual effort. The government should
see to it that every facility is offered to ad
venture, enterprise and industry. Onrships
ought to be upon every sea; our flag ought
to be flying in every harbor in the world ;
our rivers and harbors ought to be, im
proved. The Northern Pacific railway
should be pushed to completion. lathis
way labor would be iiutn jdiately given to
many thousands of men, and in only a
little while homes to millions. Along the
line of that thoroughfare would spring
up towns and cities, uew communities
with new, surroundings, and where
now is simply thu wilderness there
would be lie Usands and thousands
of happy homes. The Texas Pacific
should also be completed. A vast agricul
tural und mineral region would be opened
to the enterprise and ad venture of the
American p r.ple. Probably Arizona holds
within the miserly t dutches of her rocks
greater wealth than any other Ste.te or Ter
ritory of the world. Tile construction ;f
that road would put life and activity into a
hundred indu-tri' s. It would giveemploy
ment to many thousands of people, and
homes at lasi to m ,ny millions. It would
greatly increase lie; mineral wealth of the
country, open new avenues of trade, make
it p'is.ible for the American people to sup
ply eight millions of human beings in the
republic of M -xieo with manui'tc: tired ar
ticles, would infuse new life into tliu pros
trate South; would make tvvelvv millions of
people forget the i rejudice of failure, t.rul
would destroy the isolation produced by re
gret. It would help to make the p -ople of
the South prosperous, and they would im
mediately become paying consumers. The
whole of Texas would be opened to immi
gration. Texas, a State nearly as large its
France, five times as large as the State of
New York, with soil ami climate unsurpass
ed in the w orld, a State capable of support
ing a population of twenty millions. The
construction of this Southern road would
settle the Mexican question. It would also
settle the Indian qucsthn in the South.
The construction of the Northern Pacific
would settl" the Indian question in the
North, saving many millions per annum to
the (ioverninent. Along these lines
there would be enough people to pro
tect themselves. Besides, the transconti
nental commerce of this country should not
be in the clutch and grasp of one corpora
tion. All sections of the Union should, as
far as possible, be benefitted. It is of the
utmost importance that a line be construct
ed upon a parallel never obstructed by
snow. Cheap rates will come and can be
maintained only 'by competition. All these
roads should be under the supervision and
control of Congress as to fares and freights.
We should cultivate commercial relations
with China and Japan. Six hundred mil
lions of people are slowly awaking from it
lethargy of 2,000 years. ' In a little while
they will have the wants of civilized men,
and America will furnish a large propor
tion of the articles demanded by these peo
ple. In a few years there will be as many
ships upon the Pacific as upon the Atlantic.
In a few years our trade with China will be
far greater than with Europe. In a few
years we will retain the same relation to
the far East that Europe once sustained to
its. America for centuries to come will
supply six hundred millions of people with
the luxuries and with most all the neces
saries of life. A country that expects to
control the trade of the world must have
the money of the world. We have pursued
a small, a mean mid a penurious course.
Demagogues have ridden into ofliee and
power upon the cry of economy by opposing
every measure looking to the improvement
of the country, by endeavoring to see how
cheaply nothing could be done. A Gov
ernment, like an individual, should live up
to its privileges; it should husband its re
sources, simply that it may use them.
A Mkmi-iiis lady writes to a trienu In the
north: "I believe this plague has made a
I'uiversalist of me, I have seen men in a
moment rise from the depths of degrada
tion and wickedness to Christ like sublinii-
tp in devotion uml mcrifice, and tic tuns!
polluted of my own Sex suddenly changed
Into angel of love anil mercy. Thus (lod
tenches us to scorn iioiicof his creatures."
