- Democracy Still Lives.
The following is a leading editorial
in th Washington Post, a republican
paper, in its isstie of Xov. 7. under
the above heading:
It is a question whether any party
other than the flemocratic could
have retained such vitality as was in
dicated in Tuesday's elections. .In
similar circumstances we believe the
republican organization would have
been hopelessly dislocated. Mr.
Cleveland left the democracy divided
against itself in 1806. The war with
Spain, two years later, and the pop
ular enthusiasm which followed
equipped the republicans for an even
greater victory in 1900. The leader
ship of Mr. Bryan adde a fresh ele
ment of strength to his antagonists.
The new conditions brought about by
the war and the vast wave of public
sentiment favoring acquisition, com
mercial and territorial expansion
all this attracted thousands to the
republican standard. Party lines
were broken down in the novel fer
vor of an inflamed patriotism, and
every emotion conspired to isolate
the democratic party from the sym
pathies of the American people.
"Yet it now appears that niany
hundreds of thousands of voters saw
their way clear to supporting the or
ganization without forfeit of any
wholesale patriotic conviction. The
fictitious republican establishment in
Kentucky, brought-, about by the
Bryan schism of 1896, fell into ruins.
The democratic restoration is com
plete. In New Jersey the republican
majority has been materially reduc
ed. In Maryland all-indications point
to a final overthrow of the republi
can advantage obtained in 1895
through democratic treachery and
defection. The victory of the fusion
ists in Greater Xew York is of purely
local significance. That victory would
not have been possible but for the
co-operation of thousands of demo
crats. No party issue was at stake.
The verdict in New York was merely
for cleanliness and decency at home.
"Altogether the democrats have
.every reason to felicitate themselves.
No party ever fought against such
overwhelming odds. No such -strain
was ever put -upon the courage and
fidelity of party men. It is true that
the 'democracy has won no victories
excepting in the" case of Kentucky
and, erhaps, Maryland; but it is evi
dent that the stout old party is nlive.
that its vigor ih returning, and that,
freed from the false leadership and
the impracticable .heresies that have
so fatally handicapped it during the
past eight or ten years, it has ltefore
it a career of usefulness and incal
culable possibilities. The democracy
may well take heart."
Ah to Dan Iamont.
The news comes from New York
that a movement is.altout' to -he
launched to bring out Daniel S. J-n-mont
as a, democratic candidate for
the - presidency. It is hoed that
there is something ttehind the rumor
more than mere newspaper gossip.
Col. La mont would doubtless make a
model president, if he could lw elect
ed. His great capacity is recognized
and his honesty admitted. - He has
had large e.xierienee as secretary to
President Cleveland and secretary of
war. He is interested in vast business
enterprises and business nieu would
take his election to mean stability
anl safety. .Moreover Col. La mont is
an accomplished politician and an
exjert organizer. He therefore um
sesses the qualities to make him an

didacv in measuring the relative
chances of success. He would be

puts it, but as the same paer admits.

might cost him many votes. He

but might weaken him among the

Rather Less Alfred '

ject of King Alfred and the -coming
So you're auother of theiu." said the
small boy bitterly. "What I want Is
rather less Alfred. I've had It rubbed
into me in school and uever complain
ed. I supiKse It's the kind of thing
they're paid to do. We. had him In the
sermou on Sunday:. I've bumped up
a&alust him In every blessed paper that
I've oiened in the reading room:. I'd a
letter from tbe only girl I really cure
alKut seriously, and she asUed me If I
didn't want to be truly great, like King
Alfred. No more Alfred for me, thank.
I've had all, I cnu eaj. I dou't want to
be noisy, but If I get much more of
this Alfreding. as sure as my name's
James Robinson there'll le a row."
"Then you disapprove of the' mille
nary celebration and the unveiling' of
' I disapprove of all milliuery ex
hibitions. As for the statue, that seems
to me a bit serious. I've marked down
the name of the man who did It, and
It's Thoruycroft. I should like to put
a f?w plain questions to that Mr.
Thoruycroft. I thluk he'd look silly.
Did you ever see this King Alfred?
I suould say to him. 'Did you ever see
bis photograph? Did you ever so much
as see a drawiug of him from life?'
He'd have to say tliat he hadn't. He
couldn't get away from it. 'Then.' I
should say, 'how do you know that
statue's any more like King Alfred
than It is like my aunt?' "Why, If that
sort of thing's allowed. It may lead to
anything. He might do a thing out of
his own head, and then call It me
that Is, James Robinson! And I warn
him that If he does, he'll have my
father's solicitor to deal with!"
"Have you auythiug else against Mr.
"Yes. I have. He wouldn't get off
yet. There's another point.' I should
say. l see from the newspapers that
you've made th-; figure of King Alfred
eighteen feet high, is that true? I
want a plain yes or no. Knowing
that I'd seen it In the pnwrs. he'd prob
ably confess. 'Very well, then, I
should go fu. 'Was King Alfred ft
iuuu or wasn't he?' He'd have to own
that King Alfred was a man; he
wouldu't like It. because he'd see what
was coming, but he'd have to do It.
'Now then.'il should go on, 'did you
ever see a man eighteen feet high? I
don't want to be hard on you. I'll
throw In Barnum's show. Did you
ever see one there? You can measure
from the lottom of the heels to tbe
top of the hat of the biggest giant
known, and then you wouldn't get It
or anything near It. He'd have no ex
cuse to make. There Is no excuse for
exaggeration except that you did it In
a moment and didn't think. You can't
do a statue in a moment, and you
oughtn't to do it without thiuking.not if
you mean to give value for your money,
I think things look pretty bad for Mr.
Thornycroft. and I wonder the papers
haven't taken it tip. I suppose, le-
cause he's a great sculptor, they're
afraid to speak their mind. But I'm
"Are you going to do anything about
It?" Inquired the Interviewer.
"No. "What do I care about King
Alfred? AVheu I was younger, I was
stuffed up with a long story about his
having burned some cakes. Fool of a
thing to do with cakes. If they were
any good. I think. It was one of the
usual hlstoty stories one of the things
that show what a little bey can do, I
suppose. Now I'm told that that story
is probably a lie, aud I read it in a
book written by a parson. Oh, there
are a lot of things want showing up!)
I've got no time to learn things that
get struck out afterward."
"Has it never occurred to you how
much we all of us, including you, owe
to our great King Alfred?"
"I've had that before, and it won't
do. Suppose a butcher throws down a
cartload of mutton chops which you've
never ordered at your door. Do you
owe him for tlieui? Of course you
don't. I never asked King Alfred to
do anything for me. I never ordered
auything. All that he did he did on
bis own responsibility, and he must
take the consequences aud pocket the
loss, if there Is any. I was told when
we were doing history the other day
that If there had beeu no Alfred I
should never have existed. Well, some
times I w Isu I never had. Why should
I be thankful for his interference?"
"But can't you er"
"I can't stop here discussing It. I've
as good as promised to act as umpire
in a fight between two boys friends
of mine. Aud if I'm not there dead on
time they'll chuck it up and go away
and there won't be any fight. I could
see they were both looking out for an
excuse for backing out of It." Black
