THE OHIO IDBA PICKED.
The political revolution in Ohio Is
largely the work of the men sometimes
termed vest pocket voters. They
Hre generally thoughtful, intelligent
men, who have no aspiration for
uftiee and are conscientious In voting
their honest convictions. At least,
they want to, but are sometimes
fbreed in tlie wrong way by the par
tisan jamboree. They are not always
particularly courageous, and shrink
from the jeers and imputations of party
disloyalty from the- men who run the
)>olitieal machines for boodle. That this
quiet class was large in Ohio is indicated
by the astonishing discrepancy between
the estimates furnished the Republi
can state committee before the elec
tion and the statistics of the
ballot boxes. On the day of the
election, when it «r s too late to sup
pose that false statements would be put
out for effect, the Ohio papers of the
}>arty published the estimates of the
chairman of the committee. He stated
that he had the complete poll of more
than 2.200 of the voting districts, and
they show a plurality tor the Republi
cao state ticket of over 21,000. This
means that the party was thoroughly
organized, with its agents on duty in
every voting district, and they had taken
ji political census. The chairman speaks
i»f this organization as magnificent, and
asserts that the enthusiasm in the party
■was greater than almost ever known in
a state election. But in place of the
531.000, the result was more than 30,000
away from his claims. He was, no
doubt, justified in his confidence
by the reports received from the local
observers. The Republican machine in
Ohio is probably not surpassed in per
fection of business detail in any state.
It has reduced the carrying of elections
to a system that has business in all its
ramifications. Early lv the canvass the
precinct committeemen send to the gen
eral committees complete lists of voters
classified politically, and the doubttnl
reported as such, with suggestions as to
their vulnerable side. These reporters
did not find enough doubtful to reduce
possible figures below 15,000. Revised
reports are sent again in the later parts
of the cam paign. so that the state com
mittee has substantial data for esti
mates. The fact that this Information
gathered by the machine agencies was so
widely variant with the outcome shows
that the overthrow of the Republican
party in Ohio is the work of the men who
have been reading and quietly forming
opinions. They have studied the politi
cal questions in their business and prac
tical relations and reached the conclu
sion that their interests demanded a
change. They realized the fact that
they have contributed of their meager
substance to enrich corporations and
pampered interests. As they have come
to their conclusions from intelligent in
vestigation, they will be likely to ad
here to them, and, while they may not
matte, change in party name openly,
they will continue to vote in the direc
tion their intelligent convictions lead.
Hence, it may be assumed that Ohio
will be more than hopeful ground for
the Democrats in the future.
THE NEW FIGURES.
It has been insisted by Republican
papers that, with the advent of the new
states, they can pull through in the na
tional bout of 18!i2 without New York.
This lias w-emei to them a specially
cheerful view, as it has been a tremen
dous task to carry the Empire state.
They have been forced to abandon to it
•boat ail asked except the head of the
ticket, and nice balancing has been
necessary to keep the rival chiefs in a
common line. An enormous expendi
ture of funds has been requisite also,
with the consequent necessity of put
ting some old money bags of Wall street
on the ticket. They have been about
ready to concede that New York must
be counted against them in the next
presidential election. The recent
eieetiMa, however, disturb the se
renity of tlieir fancies. They can
not avoid the apprehension that
that their reliance upou lowa and Ohio
lias lost its chief basis, and that those
states must be classed as among the
doubtful. When Ohio and lowa are
doubtful, it requires very little candor
to concede Indiana as assuredly Demo
cratic. West Virginia is the only South
ern state that the most sanguine Repub
lican can hope to carry. Put it on the
doubtful list and add to the other states
that voted for Cleveland last year
New York and Indiana, and there are
213 electoral votes for the Democrats,
while but 208 are needed to elect. This
leaves out Montana, which is reasonably
sure for the Democrats. If the Demo
crats can carry Ohio and lowa they are
not likely to lose New York, and Illi
nois is now doubtful. The educational
work is making splendid progress and
will goon till its fruits are garnered.
A WIDE FIELD.
The fact that New York this year
gives a straight and increased Demo
cratic majority greatly adds to the diffi
culty many lVtnocrats seem to have in
dissipating the impression that the
party disloyalty of prominent poisons
lost the election to Mr. Ci.kvki .ant>
last year. This conviction, whether
right or wrong as a matter of tact, will
be very effective in inducing the next
national convention to prefer statesmen
not residents of Now York. It will be
assumed that no citizen of that state
could come nearer the full vote of the
party than Air. Ci.kvelanp. At least,
the convention would demand assur
ances that there was such cheerful
unanimity in the party there that the
loss of the state would not re
sult in the face of an evident
Ikunocratic majority. It would ac
suggested that there was Kettins
to be geographical monotony in the se
lection of the candidate of the party
for president. ISnice INK) the Democrats
have uniformly taken their choice for
the highest office from New York, with
t)u ¥ single exception of (Jen. HAHCOCK
in ISBO, and he can hardly be regarded
as au exception. There has been no
corresponding uniformity in the sup
!>ort of its own sons. Only three out of
the seven times has the state given its
electoral vote lo the Democrat. It is
probable that the vote would have gone
the same way each time if the candidate
had not been the selection of that state.
The Republicans have never taken a
candidate for president from New
York since they tirst carried a general
election. That state has furuibhed the
Democrats men quite large enough for
the first station, but there is a good deal
of politically productive country out
side of that state.
NOT THE KXPLANATION.
The efforts of tiie Republicans to find
an explanation of the disasters to their
party in the state elections would have
more success if there were not uniform
ity in the movement of the popular
wave. It is easy to say that Matiomsin
in Virginia, Forakerism in Ohio and
prohibition in lowa were the crashing
weights. Something may be conceded
to those sources, but two years ago pro
hibition was supported by the Republic
ans in lowa, Fokaker was not in issue
in the wiping out of nearly forty ma
jority in the Ohio legislature, and the
huge tidal wave in Virginia could not
well be laid entirely even to a Mahoxe.
The solution fails entirely when New
York, New Jersey and Massachusetts
are reached. Tliere is no- suggestion
of local issues in them, and yet the
trend of popular thought ia hardly
less marked than in -the others. In
Massachusetts the Republican majority
is nearly wiped out, although Boston
gave many of its Democratic votes to
the Republican candidate for governor,
as a local favorite who had defeated the
Prohibitionists. It will occur to reason
able minds that if the voting in states
widely separated were materially
affected by purely local causes, the
drift would not all be in one direction.
They would produce variant results in
different states. There is a common
chord running through them all. That
is tariff reform— not the reform that the
Republican platforms have advanced.
The people don't want tariff changes in
the direction of the protection theories.
They mean to have relief, whatever the
fortunes of the Republican party.
The Farmers' alliance in Dakota as
yet retains the organization covering
both states, and the annual convention
in December will determine whether it
is advisable to recognize the state divis
ion. The alliance desires representa
tion in congress. At the meeting of the
South Dakota legislature it presented a.
candidate for senator, and. as believed,
would have elected him but for the fail
ure of Edgertox to meet anticipations
after his confidential interview with
Pettigkew. Having failed in the
South, it is understood that effort will
be made to control the election in the
North. The majority is believed to be
composed of alliance men, or those
friendly to its aims. A meeting of the
alliance board has been called for the
second week of the session, just prior
to the time fixed by law for the senato
rial election, with a view to influencing
the choice of men. It will be a notable
achievement, and one that will be
greatly to the advantage of the alliance,
if it can secure the election of two sen:*
tors identiQed with its interests. If it
is fortunate in the selection of capable
and popular men, avoiding party hacks
and those who come out with commis
sions in their j>ockets, and are only
there for what they can make out of
offices, there would seem to be favoring
conditions for success. The claim that
any of the old party slatemakers have
a sure thing is evidently but a device to
forestall the popular will, and discour
age efforts by the alliance people.
LET THEM MAKRY.
In many, perhaps most of the larger
cities, the school boards have discrim
inated iv the selection of teachers
against married women. In some of
them the teacher who marries is forced
out of her position at once if the fact of
her marriage is discovered. The theory
urged in support of this course is that
the husband is taken to support her.and
that she no longer needs the position,
which should be given to a single lady
who has her own way to make. The
welfare of the schools does not seem to
have any place in this theory. It might
be supposed that the wise guardians of
the public educational interests would
have sufficient to do without concerning
themselves with the domestic relations
of the teachers. If the school boards
were chiefly composed of maiden ladies,
the ungenerous might find reason
for imputing to them aversion to the
spread of matrimony among their sub
ordinates, but the boards are usually
composed of married men. They are,
presumably, satisfied that wedlock is,
as a rule, desirable, at least for women.
It is noted that in several recent in
stances the rule against matrimony is
being recalled. Perhaps the boards are
impressed with the idea that it is a dis
couragement to men who would like to
marry. They may want some one to
support them. If the lady is to be de
prived of a chance of contributing to
the common sustenance, the men will
not marry. No school board ever con
siders the relation of the man to matri
mony as naving anything to do with his
fitness for teaching, and there is sug
gestion of officiousuess when they ap
oly a different rule iv the selection of
NO COMFORT THERE.
The attempt of some ot the exponents
of administration politics to find cheer
in the explanation that the elections
have resulted about as usual in the off
years, needs to avoid reference to fig
ures. These dissipate, all basis for con
solation in that quarter. Two years ago
was the most recent of the off years.
There was no election of congressmen,
and only similar conditions to those of
this year. Gov. Forager then carried
Ohio by 23,329, and now has lost it by half
as much, a difference of nearly 35,003
votes in favor of the Democrats this
year. lowa, two years ago, elected
the Republican governor Dy 16,160. The
Republican loss this year is over 25.000.
The off year majority for the Re
publicans in Massachusetts in ISS7 was
TiIK SAIJNT PA
17,000. It is now cut down to 5,904. Iho
I>eimKTats in New York havo added
several thousand to their 1T.077 margin
in the last off year, and enlarged tholr
majority in New Jersey and Virginia.
Had there been flections In Indiana and
Illinois, they would have swung over
to the Democratic side. Recent voting
in some of their chief cities gives this
assurance. The significance of the pop
ular declaration last Tuesday cannot be
emaciated by comparison with former

When the Republican who was with
that party in its early days ou account
of its anti-slavery alms notes that
(iKOROF. W. Jri.iAN is removed from
office by a Republican president for
political reasons, he will rub his eyes
and ask if this is really the Republican
party he joined in the old time. .H'lian
was oue of the old guard that followed
Republican principles before that party
had an organization. He was the can
didate for vice president on the free
soil ticket in 1852. Ue was known over
the country as one of the devoted band
of men who were ready to follow their
convictions away from all parties. Ho

principles of his life, and consequently

MCI'JNSK IN IOWA.
The impression is quite common that
prohibition has been worked into the
constitution in lowa, and consequently
its removal will be a matter of time and
difficulty, as it would be in the case of
the Dakotas. Some of the prominent
journals fall into this error. An amend
ment to the constitution was adopted by
popular vote in 1882, but the highest
state court found fissures in it that
caused its demise as a vital force, and
the prohibitory acts now in force have
no basis in the constitution. The only
support for the policy is the voice of the
legislature. The exact standing of the
members-elect of that body on this ques
tion is not defined, but it is believed
that a majority will favor the policy of
the Democratic platform and support
the substitution of a stringent license
law for prohibition. Thisisthe evident
will of the people.

said to Col. Swope, if properly request

the Louisville convention! was in de
fense of the Fayette county delegation,
of which I was a member, against
what 1 conceived to be an unjust impu

upon Col. Swope. The language was
an exaggeration, made in the heat of

TROUBLE POX MONTANA,
The New State Is Practically
Without County Officers.
Special to tbe GloDe.
Buttk, Mont., Nov. B.— ln the midst
of the rejoicing in this city to-night
over the admission of Montana to the
Union, there are many good citizens
who do not hesitate to predict
trouble for tho new state. The
people of Silver Bow county to-night
ted theuiselvca in a very unique situa
tion. The election mudale is so
befogged that no one can be found who
can furnish a solution. This
county is to-night practically without
officers. The proclamation of the presi
dent admitting Montana canceled the
commissions upon which the old officers
were ejected, and the new officers have
not yet been sworn in. An incident
which wiil show ono of the many ques
tions likely to arise occurred in the dis
trict court to-day. When court con
vened at 1 o'clock J. J. McHatton
said that he desired to present
to the court his credentials of election
as Judge De Wolfe's successor, and he
laid before the court his certificate
of election, sigued by the county
clerk. At the same moment L.
J. Hamilton, who had been expecting
this«nove, rose aud laid on the judge's
table a certificate of election as j ud see of
tne district, issued by the state board of
canvasser at the same time calling the
fact to the judicial notice of the court.
Tho scene that followed was un
precedented. Three judges were
about tho bench, each with a claim
upon it. .Tudee De Wolfe admitted that
his term of office ended as soon as his
successor was elected and qualified, but
said he had no authority to decide
which of the contestants was
elected. Democrat and Republican
lawyers argued the matter for an hour
aud a half, and then at the suggestion
of Judge De Wolfe, both contestants
withdrew their certificates with the uu
der stand ing that the court should con
tinue the case until 3 o'eioek p. m. next
Tuesday.to which time it was extended.
What cheer Is there that is half so good,
,Ip the snowy waste of a winter night.
As a dancing tiro of hickory wood,
And an easy chair in its mellow light,
And a pearmain apple, ruddy and sleek,
Or* jennetius with » freckled cheek?
A russet apple is fair to view,
With a tawny tint like an autumn leaf,
The warmth of a ripened corn field's hue.
Or golden tint of a harvest sheaf;
And the whoicsome breath of a finished year
Is held iv a winesap's blooming sphere.
They bring you a thought of tne orchard
In blossomy April aud leafy June,
And the sleepy droning of bumblebees,
In the lnzy light of the afternoon,
Aud tangled clover and bobolinks,
Tiger lilies and garden pinks.
If you've somewhere . left, with its gables

himself at ball games and other open

his room. During his brief residence
here he made many warm friends. He
left the house for his customary walk
one bright afternoon in June and
was never again seen or heard of
in St. Paul. He had no outstanding
bills, had paid his room rent in advance
and no plausible reason could be ad
vanced for his disappearance. Kis room

anxious and telegraphed to his parents
in Virginia, thinking that perhaps he
had taken a sudden notion to return

from him. Letters were them passed,
