t upon m ''bad boy."
While there ii much to be thankful
for, let the next day for rejoicing be
that of TliankaeivlnK.
The republican ere congratulating
themselves upon their new principle of
being backward in coming forward.
Thehi seems to be no possibility of a
doubt that John M. Palmer will aucceed
Charlea B. Farwell as United Stutea ten
ator. Tbk Union tbioks a new Toting meth
od would be suitable for Rock Island.
But what the Pnlon really wishes for the
voters it a new method of thinking.
Up to the hour of going to press the
(Treat scheme that Joe Haat wm to spring
upon unsuspecting democrats at the last
moment, has not been divulged. It must
have died a bnrin.'
Somebody wiites to the Union that the
democratic ticket was badly made up at
the late election. Considering the results,
however, the democrats may be expected
to grin and bear it
The Pt. Louis Olobe-democrat rises to
remark that "es sn impartial observer of
current events, we desire to say that
there appear to be entirely too many
democrats in the country at the present
Theisk is an anxiety sow among re
publicans that the democrats shall con
duct the bouse under the good old rule
that were In existence long before the
reipn of Reed. Tbey think it is "cheap
and nasty" to rule with an iron band.
The republicans generally have a com
fortiog logic. They now blame the loss
of Pennsylvania upon Quay, and yet
they would not dismiss him. Had Penn
sylvania won, Qiiay would have been
given the credit.
Now that the republicans have elected
Crawford to the state senate it will be an
easy thing to send him to congress. It
is hoped that Lis boundless ambition will
not cause him to beeome "over hel" in
the next assembly and thus open the wav
for "infermatlon "
Tbe St. Louis Oiubt-lteiiuKTat is man
ly and honest. It admits what tbe world
knows that the republicans have been
knocked out all along the line, and yet
the republican papers in Chlctgo try to
make their readers believe that there Is
still hope for victory of a diluted kind.
Tbe tax is a punishment, as ttese
word from the St. Louis GlvbDenuerat
will amply testify: Tbe chastening
rod of defeat may occasionally be applied
with advantage to a pohtiral organiza
tion, but wearing out a hickory stick on
tbe soft parts is a little too much of a
Tbk Moline Ditjmlch has begun again
the argument of the tariff, lis first step
Is to quote a large portion of tbe debate
la tbe last house on the McKinley bill,
and from this it will doubtless move
along until another election comes aroucd(
By tbat time it will have seen its error.
''Umschltclocs seat-stealera" is what
' , tbe republicans rail tbe democrats now.
And during the reign of Thomas the
First two duly elected democrats were
' compelled to give up their seats in tbe
, houie in order that two colored men from
; the south should fill them and thus help
along the boss in his methods.
i The Moline Iitpatch is short on suc
l cesa, but long on consolation. It con
cludes that if another democratic paper
bad been opposed to it in Moline that the
. republicans would have been all right.
: According to this it would seem that tbe
J Ditputch is regretting tbat it did not take
up the fight of the winning siJe itself.
What's the matter with making pre
parations for another year
Tbe Union says the faces of republi
' cans are not fearfully and wonderfully
, long just now. It intimates also that
the Arous didn't tell tbe truth about the
' McKinley bill. The Arocs admit It.
Life is too short for such a thing as that,
providing it means the whole truth. But
the people are fast finding it out. But as
far as the Antics went concerning tbe
tariff it was true. Tbe republicans lied
"about it until the election was over, and
' then saw It was no use to continue the
f area any longer, and step by step began
to tell the truth. The Chicago Tribuiu
didn't wait even for tbe steps, but took
' its usual jump and landed in tbe ranks of
s tariff, for revenue only. The Tribttn Is
an able paper, but It lies like a tbief
about election time on the question of
tariff, and the moment the election is
over no matter which way it goes it is
back in the old groove, pounding away
for tariff reform, and demanding a reduc
tion of tbe taxes. Blaine and McKinley
( and Cannon and all the rest of them
( knew tbey were deceiving the people, or
'. at least trying to, and the prettiness of it
was tbat the people knew it. too, and
told them ao at the polls. There is a
' very large streak of insincerity running
through tbe republican party. It should
' get Itself together and reform.

Washington Citt. Nov. & Tha few
eoDgresaaien who an in tbe city and
particularly those of them who are Demo
crat, do not hesitate to talk about the
D -mocrattc victory. Senator McPherson,
of New Jersey, said yesterday that when
the priuciple and traditiona of the country
were franjplad upon, when the wishes of
tbe people were disregarded and extraor
dinary power put in the hand of one
man, when extravagant expenditures
were resorted to, extraordinary pension
measure panned (giving pensions to those
who did not deserve them), when a heavy
lucre . of taxation was imposed upon
the people, while they were demanding
reduction, if anythiug; wben all these
thing had happened it was to be expected
tbat people would rise up as a body and
rebuke tbe party responsible for it Of
probable presidential candidates, tbe sen
ator siiid: "We can go anywhere, almost,
in the Country to get our Candida'. The
field is broadened. We are not dependent
upon New York nor disturbed by her
loeU quarrel. If they will not asttie
their differences we are not obliged to go
to New York for our president."

and disregard puolc interest. As to tbe
presidency, be said tbat be bad no doubt
tlim Mr Cleveland held the heart of the
Democratic party, but he could not pre
dict what would come out of the present
situation. "Tbe mention of Cleveland's
name on the stump," be said, "always
calls for an enthusiastic response. 1 often
avoided mentioning his name, because it
might look like a bid for applause a
cheap way to get applause for m.sclf "

Treasurer ! niton' Comments.
Republican officials who have been
away to the elections are reurninjr, and
among the late arrivals is United State
Treasurjr Huston. Hustuu was seen yes
terday mornintr by a Unite I Press repre
sentative. He said it seem d to him that
what caused the landslide was a lack of
Republican and abundance of Democratic
votes. D fiVreut causes ia different states.
In bis opinion combined to produce tbe
r-sult. la Indiana, be said the Republi
cans were well organized, but so were tbe
Democrats, and there was a third party in
the Held. Until full returns come in, so
that intelligent comparisons could be
made with tbe votes of former years, all
deductions made from ti e figures now iu
would be worthless. One cause of the
disaffection be said was undoubtedly the
tariff as it was ingeniously worked by
the Democrats to the injury of the Re
publicans REVISED ELECTION FIGURES.
More Complete aud Corrected Returns
from Several Sttttee.
New Yokk, Nov. a The Sun says: The
late and now almost complete returns
from the congressional districts show
that tbe Democratic majority in tbe next
house will be equal to almost one-half of
the entire membership, and eighteen
states wiil be without a single Republican
representative Several herero'ore strong
Republican states are left entirely with
out Republican representation, and there
are but three Republicans elected from
the south. Tbe estimates of tbe morn

For months tbe eyes of a t miners in tha

Feat be r river was diverted from iu course
and ths rich river bed laid bare Yester

The Red of Feather River.
Tbe bed of tbe river appeared as a deep
ravine about 100 feet across, bounded by
rocks eighty feet high. Above, sweeping
throng1! an immense flume, the water of
the Feather glide at a velocity of seven
teen feet per second. From the flame it
isestin.ated that 10.00 Hons of water drop
every second. This 8.10 yards of river
bed presents an interesting study. Wben
the water was turned into the flume two
weeks ago there aiill remained several
miniature lakes in the bottom of the
stream snd these were augmented by tbe
seepage of water from tbe big dam. The
seven litige' water wheels which hang
across I he flume were connected b wire
cables to great pumps and these working
nta-nt a: in Usy o?gan to pump water at
the rale of l.rtw miner's inches a minute,
discharging into a sub-flume.

When tbe water was pumped out it was
found 1 ha' there was a vast amount of
unexpected debris to be removed before
uncovering the pay gravel. Several hun
dred men were put l work to strip the
debris f rom the claim, and, if possible to
get a own to pay gravel. At night tbe
scene is wortn going mnes to see. A line
of electric lights are hung along the flume
that skirts the wails of tbe r.ver. At 6:31
eacbevt ning tbe dark ravine, buried in
deep stmdous, is suddenly illuminated Ly
