THE XEXT GREAT ISSIE.
It is not one moment too early to
begin the work of preparing parties
and men for the issue that will shake
this country four years from today.
A little less than four years ago one of
the most thoughtful men in St. Paul, a
man versed in politics and prominently
associated with the Palmer and Buck
ner movement said to the
writer: Is it. not your opinion that the
next eamr&tgn will be carried on over
the financial question?" He added to
this querry a mass of facts, figures
and inductions which had convinced
him that what had seemed probalbe
then, namely, the maintenance of the
tariff as the prevailing contention in
American politics, would fail to come
to pass; and that the great melee of
1896 would be around the standards of
honest money and cheap money. His
foresight was justified. Now, it seems
to us that, just as the issues and the
under currents of the campaign of 1592
foreshadowed those of 1896, so those of
1596 foretell clearly those which are
to be in 1900. We soothe and flatter our
selves with the idea that the fight
which we have fought has been not
only a good one, but a final one. This
is the delusion common to all mortals
and mortal things. There is no final
ity. Each step of progress leads but
to another, and the trumpets that
sound one victory swell the summons
to another battle.
We flatter ourselves that the intens
ity of the fight this year can not soon
be paralleled, and that we have laid at
rest the worst that threatened us.
We have, it is true, killed one of
the monsters that assailed us. The
free silver fantasy will invade our
visions no more. But the most mon
strous, grim and menacing of all the
figures that stalked across our hori
zon in this campaign looms, dim, in
deed, but portentous, above our future.
For the first time in our history the
appeal has been made upon a large
scale to. the class issue. The essential
hostility of man to man and interest
to Interest has been proclaimed as a
substitute for the gospel of mutual
interest and mutual helpfulness. It
is the curse of issues like this that,
♦hough beaten down, they perpetuate
themselves. Growth like this in the
human heart is not cut away by fail
ure at the ballot box. The men whnse
attempt this year led only to disaster
will not give over their assumed lead
ei-ship, or tune their harsh roaring to
the cooing of the. dove because they are
outvoted. Does any one Imagine that
Altgeld will retire from politics, or
that he will change from anarchist to
Democrat? Does any one suppose that,
after this event, Tillman will become
decent and sane? Does any one even
persuade himself that Mr. Bryan will
step off the stage, or that he will cease
to instill inta the people's hearts that
subtile poison which he spread so
widely over them in the last three
months; the notion that poverty and
virtue are always identical; that the
possession of property is a synonym of
viciousness, and that the "haves" and
the ''have nots" must be arrayed
ugainst one Another in enduring bat
This demoniac force, when roused to
life in a nation, is hard to kill. It
is iike some incitement to individual
passion; some single yielding of the
always upright man to the lusts of the
flesh. Never thereafter will he be so
armed against temptation. Never
thereafter can he wholly resist the
insidious creeping in of the memory
of an hour of forbidden delight. Thrice
guarded must he be thereafter to the
end that he shall stand secure. Thus
it is with our nation today. Four
years ago those who thought that
cheap money, with its appeal to the
debtor class and tts brtrtc im dishon
esty, would win, laiA thejp 'j&piis to cap
ture ihe party orgariizatk<w And make
their fight. Today the class issue
stands where the money Issue stood
just after the election of Grover Cleve
land. It is a new thing, a tempting
thing, the easiest and best built for
an appeal to the populace. Let no man
think that it will be forgotten or left
to sink into desuetude. The dema
gogue and the scheming politician will
see, or think they see, in 1900, one
chance to win fey pushing to the place
of command the second issue in the
campaign of 1896. It is for every pa
triot and citizen to arm himself for
that contest. We need all that the
next four years can give us of good,
if it is to win. We need the enforce
ment of law, the doing of justice, the
renunciation of undue advantage, the
purification of politics, the return to
democratic liberty, to convince the peo
ple that this government is of them
and for them. In this work, and as a
protection against future danger, Re
publicans and Democrats may well join
hands, as they have done in this elec
THE LATEST RETURNS.
The immense labor of compiling the
returns of a national election is wit
nessed by the slowness with which
final and official reports are received
from every portion of the country.
There is nothing, however, to change
the complexion of the result as an
nounced in these columns yesterday,
or to moderate the importance or the
collusiveness of the victory won by
the cause of sound money. It is not
probable that there will be any change
in the table of electoral votes published
by the Globe this morning. Mr. Mc-
Kinley will receive not less than 259
votes, and Mr. Bryan not more than
187. This is on the assumption that the
latter carries every state about which
any doubt still exists. All the talk I
about uncertainty in Indiana or Mich
igan is mere moonshine; and Mr. Bryan
himself exhibits a saving common
sense and manliness in practically re
jecting the absurd proclamations which
that very absurd person, Senator Jones,
is still issuing to the country. The es
timate gives Kansas, Kentucky and
Washington to Bryan, although the
vote is close, and any or all of them
may gc for McKinley. As to the 259
votes assigned to him, they are just as
certain as if they had been cast and
counted in congress and the result an
nounced by the speaker of the house.
The verdict cf the people is complete.
That the next house will foe Repub
lican by a majority nearly or quite as
great as the present is also assured.
The vote on the state ticket in Min
nesota, as it comes in, justifies the es
timate cf the situation made by the
Globe. The careful canvass which
it made of the state foreshadowed with
wonderful exactness the condition of
popular opinion as told by the ballots.
McKinley carries the state by about
48,000. Lind has run so far ahead of hia
ticket that the governorship is still
in some doubt. The figures which are
given in our table of the vote by coun
ties show a plurality of about 5,000 for
Mr. Clough. But these returns, al
though we believe them substantially
final, are not all completed. Where only
partial figures have been received, the
balance must be estimated. It is ob
vious that the official report may vary
somewhat from these figures; and it
Is possible, though it seems now very
unlikely, that the full returns might
overcome the apparent plurality of
Clough and show the election of Mr.
Lind instead. Both committees claim
the state ardently and positively; the
truth being that no one knows abso
lutely at this writing who is to be the
next governor of Minnesota. Lind has
made a won-lerful run, cutting down
the huge presidential majority to al
most nothing. All the congressional
districts return Republican members.
Towne is certainly beaten in the Sixth,
and even in the Seventh, where the
populist candidate was supposed to be
sure of success, Eddy pulls through.
It has been a year of extraordinary
political changes and uncertainties in
Minnesota, and its vote is one of the
most interesting In the list.
WHAT LOST, NOT WHAT WOK.
The real significance of the verdict of
the ballots returned on Tuesday lies
not in the success of policies proposed,
but in what was defeated. The votes
that turned the scale and precipitated
the landslide were not attracted by the
various schemes of paternalism for
which Mr. McKinley stands. They
were repelled by what was proposed by
the fusionists and the methods used by
Strip off the rhetoricals and the cam
paign of Mr. Bryan resolves itself into
two simple propositions, a scaling down
of debts at least 50 per cent, and a di
vision of the people into "classes" and
"masses." It draped the first with soph
isms that gave the proposition a sem
blance of justice, and caught the
thoughtless who had no debts to pay,
but whose sentimental sympathies ran
strongly to -those who had. It offered
a tremendous temptation to the man in
debt whether his debt was created yes
terday or ten years ago. Many yielded,
but the returns from the states where
the debtor class is most numerous show
that this base appeal was rejected, to
the honor of the name American.
It played upon the envy of men for
I those who have accumulated wealth.
It portrayed the bankers as vampires
sucking the blood of industry. It paint
ed the employer as the master, the em- i
ploye as the slave. It sought to array
labor against capital. It proclaimed a
crusade of the mass against class, stir
ring again the feelings that broke into
j tempest of fire and bloodshed in Chi
cago in 1894. It took all that there Is
that is concededly bad in our condi
tions, social, financial and industrial,
and magnified it and offered a dishon
est currency as the panacea. It was a
j deliberate appeal to all that is violent
I and repulsive In human nature, cloak
ing the appeal with protestations of an
outraged and indignant virtue.
Not all who cast their ballots for Mr.
Bryan were thus moved. Loyalty to
party dragged many a man protest
ir.gly after him. Others felt that the
dangers ;>f paternalism were so great
tWS SAINT PAtJT, GIX>BKs THURSDAY, NOVEMBER o, 1898.
that any Implement that would smite
them was justifiable. Others convinced
themselves that It was only by a union
of the opposition that the country could
obtain the reforms paternalism pre
vented a triumphant Democracy from
giving:. Disavowing acceptance of the
Chicago heresies these men lent their
support to the cause of dishonesty in
finance and division in society.
It is, we repeat and insist, not in the
policies apparently adopted or ap
proved, but in those so emphatically re
jected, that the significance of the elec
tion lies. It was, possibly, worth while
that the test should have been made.
It is well that once in a while, at long
intervals, measure should be taken of
the patriotism and honesty of the na
tion. It is mortifying that the Demo
cratic name should have been taken to
designate the aggregation that dared to
make the test. As long as it was of
fered by the Populists alone it was re
fused a trial, but when, in the language
of Chairman Butler, Populists had
"taken possession of the Democratic
party," the nation was put to its met
tle, and the decision is one that no
party will ask a reversal of for another
quarter-century at least.
DEAD AND BURIED.
There is one issue which, until an
other generation arises, that shall re
fuse to be guided by the experience of j
its predecessors, should trouble us no
more. That issue is cheap money in
general, and free coinage of silver at
the ratio of 16 to 1 in particular. Twice |
now within a quarter of a century have !
the people settled this question de
cisively. They allowed the Greenback
party to become menacing, and to lin- |
ger along for several years after that
before they put it out of its pain. In
a more plausible and specious form this
issue came back to us twenty years
later In the crusade of the owners of
silver mines for a government market
for their product. This time there
were elements of real danger. It was |
not a proposition for money entirely J
fiat, but one contemplating only a seal- i
ing down of 50 cents on a dollar. It took I
refuge behind a coin already existing,
and covered its ugly features with a
veil of plausible deceit. It gathered a \
crew of weak but attractive argu- :
ments, and threw their bewilderment !
about the people. It added to the nat- j
ural strength already in the cheap
money movement the artificial strength !
of one of the great political parties, j
The vote for free silver this year con- j
sisted of the natural cheap money vote I
plus as many more votes, at least, '
which were cast under protest, because \
the candidates representing cheap '■
money bore the Democratic name.
Thus presented with the strongest pos
sible following, with the best chance
that any such issue ever had, or ever i
can have, to win in this country, the
free coinage scheme has been beaten I
overwhelmingly by the popular vote.
Such a majority is arrayed against it
as was never cast in the history of I
this country before. It is as dead as !
Nebuchadnezzar, and the Lord be |
praised for it.
We shall hear no more of the "lack
of money of final redemption." Never
again will "the crime of 1873" be dan
dled before our terrified eyes. "The ap
preciation of gold" will not affright in
nocent children from their sleep. The !
whole stock of catch words and phras- !
es that have done duty for so many
years is sent to the lumber room-.
We are not yet ready to appreciate j
the infinite relief and advantage of the !
change that has come to us. It is
not merely the dominant issue of this
particular campaign that has been put
into Its grave and buried deep, it is '
the whole flock of birds of evil omen i
that have hovered about our banquets
and spoiled the odor of our feasts for ',
more than twenty years. Day in and j
day out they have been leading to this
event. Never a session of congress that
did not have before it the proposition |
for free silver, and that did not spend j
weary days and weeks in listening to
the threadbare platitudes of Jones and
Stewart and the rest of the subcon
tractors of the mine owning syndicate,
and the more honest, but no less lo
quacious people whom they had be
fooled. For two decades investment
in this country has been limited, and
our reputation has suffered by the pe
rennial agitation for a debasement of
our monetary system.
Nothing can compare with the re
lief that comes to us from the lifting- i
of this burden. The cheap money issue i
is a corpse which nothing can
reanimate. The cranks and those
who worked for a percentage in the
silver interest will continue their
clamor, but they are only a petty crew.
The great rank and file that stood be
hind them will desert. To the familiar
truth that "nothing succeeds like sue- !
cess," we may add its equally true co
relative that nothing fails like failure.
Neither the political leader nor the
average voter cares to be soundly j
beaten more than once. Nine out of
every ten Democrats who yielded to
the silver fallacy this year consented
to it because they believed that it j
would win. If it had been known to
be a certain loser, can anybody im- |
agine that the Chicago convention or !
the Minnesota state Democratic con
vention, or any of the other conven
tions outside of the mining states, j
would have picked up the banner of j
16 to 1? Now, at last, this thing is j
definitely disposed of. They have told
us all through this campaign that
never before had the people of this
country had an opportunity to vote !
straight for or against the free coin- I
age of silver, and to declare their con- j
demnation or condonation of the act
of 1873. That opportunity has come
and gone. We have taken our plebes
cite. The votes are counted and free !
silver is in a minority of something
like a million.
In the reform of parties that is now
to take place, in the search for new
issues and the shaping into better form i
the oirl ones, the 16 to 1 proposition can
il?i>il no place. It was worth while to
-.riiiiHe. /tills contest to lay forever at
rest j this, wretched ghost that has
haunted politics and Jibbered nonsense
in affrighted ears until sensible peo
ple, now conscious of their hallucina
tion, mistook the specter for a threat
ening thing of flesh and blood.
WAGEWKR'S GREAT RUX.
The most phenomenal thing in the
campaign locally is the great run made
by John Wagener for sheriff. Although
Ramsey county. waa carried for Mc-
Kinley by a majority that exceeded
the expectations of the most sanguine,
and for Clotfgli, by a heavy margin,
a.nd although no other candidate for
county office on the Democratic side
had a ghost of a show, John Wagener
overcame all' 1 these adverse influences
and is elected sheriff by more than
T.OOO majority. It is a splendid tribute
to his personal popularity, and also ;i
merited rebuke to his opponent. The
Globe had occasion to expose, more
than a year ago, the operations of
the sheriff's office and the burdens
that it imposed upon the people. The
voters Pince then have bided their
time. In addition to that, Mr. Chapel
had to face the indignation of the
friends of the defeated Republican
candidate for congress, and the
rumor 3 that have been floating around
freely concerning the way in which his
nomination was secured. It was evi
dent that a small army of Republicans
was waiting for a chance to shov
their disapproval; and this situation
was improved by the nomination on
the Democratic side of one of the best
known and most popular young men
in St. Paul. Mr. Wagener walks away,
in this year of Republican landslides,
with the office which is probably most
to be desired in Ramsey county; and
everybody is glad of it. The Globe
congratulates him on his great success

At the Metropolitan opera house tonight,
the famous Napoleonic comedy-drama, "Mad
ame Sans Gene," will begin an engagement
of three nights and Saturday matinee, with
Miss Kathryn Kidder in the title role.
"Madame Sans Gene" was one of the great
est and most successful of last season's
productions, recording a run of 150 nights at
the Broadway theater, New York. It also
created a big sensation throughout the East
ern cities wherever presented. The play will
be presented in this city by the original com
pany, and Miss Kidder will be seen In the
role of "Madame Sans Gene," her original
creation, while Augustus Cook will personate
the great Napoleon. There are forty-two char
acters in the play, all of whom are necessary
to the development of the story.
The play itself has two aspects. First, there
is a picture of Paris in the revolutionary
times, Paris as it appeared on Aug. 10, 1792,
when the last blow to the Bourbons was
struck, a picture in which love and war,
cannonading and love-making, life and death,
mingle in a sort of joyful chaos around Cath
erine Hubscher's laundry in the Rue St.
Anne. The second picture presents the court
of the great Napoleon at the zenith of his
power. A dynasty has been evolved from
anarchy; the "sans culottes" *nd the rank
and file of '89 are dukes and duchesse-, and
te great Napoleon rules over a nobility of
his own creation. The advance sale for
•Madame Sans Q*«e" has been large.
* • •
"The Man in the Iron Mask" will be pro
duced at the Metropolitan opera house on
Sunday, Nov. 8, for Tour nights and a
Wednes matinee. The adaptation from Du
mas' great story is by Donal Robertson, who
plays tho dual parts of Louis XIV., king of
France, and his twin broter, Gaston.
« • •
"A Boy Wanted" is meeting with success
at the Grand. Harry fiianey, in the title
role, is ably assisted by the Misses O'Neill
and Sutherland and others in the cast. The
specialties are numerous and attractive.

The engagement of that popular actor, Mc-
Kee Rankin, at the Grand next week, should
prove an event of unusual interest. In his
new drama, "New York As It Is," Mr.
Rankin. is said to have constructed an ex
cellent play. The role which Mr. Rankin as
sumes, although not the longest and most
prominent on« ia the play, affords oppor
tunities for artietic character work which so
finished an actor aa Mr. Rankin is eminent
ly qualified to tnke advantage of. Miss Maude
Granger is Mr. Rankin's leading lady. Miss
Granger is well known throughout the coun
try, having made seyeral tours at the head
of her own company as a star.

There are 135 districts that have

as doubtful, with the prospect that

The House as He Believes It Will
WASHINGTON, Nov. 4.--The re
turns thus far received on congression
al elections show that the Republicans
will have a majority of the next house
but they are far too meager to permit
an accurate approximate statement of
relative strength owing to the fact
that over three score votes have to be
put in the doubtful or unreported
column. The totals shown are 195 Re
publicans; 70 Democrats; 28 Populists,

SOIHVD MOXEY MAJORITY
In the Xext House Admitted by the
WASHINGTON, Nov. 4 -The Re
publican congressional cemmittee has
reports showing 200 congressional dis
tricts are safely Republican. At Dem
ocratic headuarters it is claimed un
officially that the Republican majority
in the next house will not be more than
14. The Populists claim 150 silver mer
and 20 Populists.
Chairman Babcock has received a
dispatch from West Virginia saying all
four Republican congressmen were el
ected, Chairman Faulkner had a dis
patch saying Pendleton, Dem., waa el
ected in the Fourth district. Senator
Faulkner also had dispatches claiming
the election of Democrats in the fol
lowing districts in Ohio, Lentz.
Twelfth; McDowell. Seventeenth; Nor
ton, Thirteenth; Marshall, Fourth;
Meekenson. Fifth; Brenner, Third with
the possibility of two others. Another
dispatch says Zenor, Dem., in the
Third Indiana district is elected.

INDIANA IS I]i LIP
THE HOOSIER STATE SAFE FOR
MKIXLEY BY A GOOD MA
DEMOCRATS DENY THIS,
BUT THEY ADMIT THAT THE FIG
URES ARE APFAH.E.NTL.Y
AGAINST THEM. '
HE WANTS THE OFFICIAL FIGURES.
Chairman Martin Will Xot Give Up
Hope Until He Has Reached the
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., New 4.— At
* o'clock this evening Chairman Mar- i
tin, of the Democratic state committee,
Maimed that it will require the of
ficial count to determine the result ot
Indiana. At that hour he had received
leturns from 81* of tha 92 counties,
showing a plurality of 8,317 for Me-
Kinley. These did not include Marion
county, which would increase Mc-
Kinley's plurality to about 13,000.
Chairman Martin, however, charges
that in some counties of the state the
Democratic and Populist votes wero
not aggregated, which, if true, would
decrease MeKinley's apparent plurali
ty and for that reason he will await
the official count, refusing in the mean
time to concede tflie state. The 81
counties heard from at S o'clock show
ed a Democratic loss over 1592 of 15.
--4-12. In some of the counties still to be
heard from the Democrats expect con
siderable losses. Chairman Gowdy
claims the state for McKinley by at
loast 23,000. It is safe to say that Mc-
Kinley'!-; plurality in" Indiana will not
be less than 15,000 nor more than 25,
--000. The Republican state ticket 13
also elected by a safe majority.
Indianapolis, Nov. 4.— Returns have
been received by the News up to 2SO
from about 800 out of nearly 3,000 out
fide of Marion county. While the lat
ter returns do noc show quite so larcre
a ratio of gains over the vote of 18i>2,
P« the precinct first reported, they stiU
show considerable gains. The judment
of those best informed in regard to
Ihe conditions throughout the state is
that Indiana will glye a Republican,
plurality of about 20,000. The Majorily
for McKinley in Marion county (In
dianapolis) will be not far from 8,000.
The indications are that the legislature
will be Republican on joint ballot, but
the returns are not yet complete
enough to make this absolutely sure.
Late returns this afternoon indicate
heavy Democratic gains in southern
Indiana strong holds. These will re
duce the estimates of a big Republican
pluralitj early in the day, but from
present indications will not effect thu
general result, which is that McKinley
has carried the state. The Republi
cans probably elect nine congressmen.
Fifty out of ninety-two counties hi
Indiana show McKinley plurality of
17,000. If the other counties vote as
they did in 1892 they will give Bryan a
plurality of 5,253. But there is every
:eason to expect considerable gains
in those counties for the Republicans
over the vote of 1892. The state is
reasonable, therefore, for McKinley by
at least 20,000 plurality.
Evansville, Ind., Nov. 4.— Vantierburg
county gives McKinley 1,074 majority.
WISCONSIN THE SAME.
MeKinley's Majority Still Stands at
MILWAUKEE. Wis., Nov. 4.— There
is no change in the political situation
in Wisconsin. The state is Republican
by about 100,000. The legislature is
almost solidly Republican and the en
tire congressional delegation is of the
Milwaukee, Wls., Nov. 4.— At mid
night the changes made by fuller re
turns fro-m nearly all the counties of;
the state, and closer estimates on the
remaining counties show an increased
majority for the Republican presiden
tial ticket in Wisconsin. Almost every
county shows increased pluralities on
complete returns. The most striking
reduction is that in Douglas county,
where theestimates of 1,200 are reduced
below 700. The Republican gains in tho
old Democratic ev-imties of the eastern
part of the state are increased by the
later returns. The indications are now
that the present plurality for the Re
publican presidential ticket, 95,935, will
be increased by the returns yet to
SOUND MONEY SENATE..
Majority Will Certainly Be Against
WASHINGTON, Nov. 4.— From re
turns thus far received tfhe next sen
ate will probably stand ac follows.
Republicans 42; Democrats 32; Inde
pendents and Populists 11; doubtful 5;
total 90. On the currency question the
senate undoubtedly will have an anti
silver majority. The doubtful states
are Delaware, Kansas, Kentucky,
North Carolina and South Dakota. Tho
Republicans would need 45 with the
vice president to control the senate.
The Republican senators who bolted
the St. Louis ticket and platform are
classed as independents. They are
Teller, Dubois, Mantle and Cannon.
Another Utah senator to be elected
to succeed Brown, will undoubtedly be
"Silver Dick" Elected.
ST. LOUIS. Nov. 4.— Congress, Eight dis
trict, R. P. Bland. Democrat, elected.

"•JS~3 2 ' Family.
A : '«9ocßlng bird serves as a night watch
man at the residence of R. F. Bettes at
Tampa, Fla., and notifies the family of tha
coming of dawn every morning by pecking
on the window pane. Often when the doora
are left ajar the mocking bird comes Inside
and perches on the chairs and about the
room. It will allow the family to come yery
close and shows marked attention to Mrs.
Bettes and her little daughter. When they
start out for a visit it follows them some
distance, and then returns to the yard. When
the family returns it appears very glad and
will fly all about them, and gives evidence
of its joy in other ways. The children feed
it about the house, and when the family
meal is to be served, if the window is not *
raised, it makes its presence known by peck
ing on the window. During the day it geta
on a neighboring brush or tree and sings
its roundelay of song for hours at a time.
