that tne taking place front day to
day and week to week, we propose
to give the situation to our readetr
as we see it, without exaggeration of
our side or depreciation of the other.

At pre:ent we sincerely believe
that the Lemocratic column
IS MOVING RIGHT ALONG.
Our rtasons for this belief are
plain aslid pleasant. We find in
New York, the Empire State, with
its 38 electoral votes, that the Dem
ocracy ae in perfect harmony.
How different front four years ago?
Tammnany with its powerful influ
ence is earnestly as work to secure
the election of Cleveland and Steven
son, and Senator Hill has fallen into
line to promote and ensure their
certain success. Every reasonable
indication and fair calculation point
to Democratic snecess in the great
State of New York with. apronoun
The loss of New York is already
virtually co ieeeded by the promi
nent Republican leaders, while Platt
their big man of that State, has been
in a manncr placated, they have ut
terly failed to enthuse him into ac
tion for eaimpaign I,urpose.
The Buckeye State has never been
regarded as a factor in the Demo
cratic column especially dlt ing a:
presidential campaign; ''.Ephrait: is
given to his idols" let him weut;
but Ihia3dia is another sort of
"stamping ground." The Demo
.racy in the FIoosier State are be
stirring themselves and are fully alive
to the situation. Adlai Steveison
has visited most of their prominent
(tiles and thickly settled countes,
pouring hot shot into the ill-hegor
ten Repubhliecan rnrster, better
kinown as the force bill'. A decided
change in favor of the Democratic
ticket is steadily growing in MIr.
Harrison's own State, and" thins his
friends well know, without the
power to prevent it. So we can
safely say tlhat in Indiana the IYDem
ocracy is moving right along, with
bright and pronlising prospects for

Our information from Illinois is
qually encouraging. IFou. Donrr .

well known fact. that fear is the prin
