This Is a misleading comparison of tbe

Wilson's vote should not be taken as tbe
basis for computation. Although head

Wilson's vote In many localities beyond
his pity strength. Mr. Raith's vote,
while due to dissimilar causes, is
also a delusive quantity as a psr
ttsn test. The only reliahle etl
mate, indeed, is furnished by tbe
vote for university trustees, for which
offices there was little if any scratching.

" ram Merrill's J Ian."
Directly after tbe election tbe republi
cans were very positive in tbeir claims
that the P. M. P. A. members of tbe
legislature elect would not act with the
democrats In tbe election f a United
States senator, and that Palmer stood no
show. A tittle investigation, however,
seems to bave dispelled this illusion and
tbe republican press Is now reconciling
luelf to tbe inevitable. In this coo Dec

and be made a good many of them, be
brought with blm a long, lean man as
his companion and friend. The man was
known as "Tom Merritt's Jim." and no
body even thought It was worth wbile to
ascertain his full name. Jim was always
a janitor or a policeman, and he drew pay
wbetber be was in Springfield or at home
during tbe session. Jim and Mr. Mer
rilt slept together and chummed to
gether, and the clerks In tbe Leisnd hotel
office were given to understand that noth
ing In tbe bouse was too good for "Jim."
In time Jim sot to be quite a character,
and be was always asked as to Mr. Mer
ritt's whereabouts in case any one wanted
blm. A legislature without Merritt and
Jim' would not he regarded as amount
ing to much. Finally Mr. Merritt was
defeated for renominating by a gentle
man named Holtslaw, who in turn was
left at the polls. Tbe irrepressible "Jim"
will be here this winter and Mr. Merritt
will come along to keep him company
Jim's name is James Cockrell Mr
James Cockrell of tbe P. M. B. A., if

and Mr. Merritt are just as sweet on each

Marion is relied upon to land bis old

The fact of bis pull with Cockrell ex

tbat exists in tbe minds of some of the
democrats who are In possession of tbe
party secrets that Gov Palmer will even

OPINIONS AT THE CAPITAL.
National Officials Take Utile Stock in
the Indian 8cara.
Washington Citt, Nov. 23. Indian bu
reau officials quite generally discredit the
warlike and threatening reports that
come from the Sioux country. Acting
Commissioner B.;!t, of the Indian office,
does not believe that the Indians contem
plate hostile action toward the whites.
The promised Messiah that they are look
ing for to lead them iu the destruction of
tbe whites, has not and will r.at material
ise, but when they discover t:..t he is not
likely to be forthcoming, di-ti p j.iitmeut
may make them troublesome, iliey will
then turn upon the medicine men who
have made these predictions, and there
may be difficulties that will spread be
yond tribal limits.
An Unkind Cat at Miles.
The following dispatch was received at

show that this Messiah eraz? is extendiug
o our Indians near the mouutatu border
and between the Sioux nation and ths
Canadian Imnler." This scarv dis
patch, so The Star says, is attributed bv
many oflicers to Gen. Miles' "presidential
nee wnicn was boomed at a banquet at
San Francisco last summer. Au official
says that Miles bus "shrewdly enlisted the
favor of nearly every newsnaner man in
California, and has by his agreeable
manners and the expenditure of his
means, managed to make himself very
popular iu a certain way in the west. He
Is one of the m st ambitious men in the'

'I not ild not be surprised if yon should

HaiiKisiiro. Pa., Nov. S3 Americans
Slave read with feeltngaof horror ih ac
counts of eviction of tenants in Ireland.
To day they can perose tbe new.papers of
their native country and note the turning
out of renters thst teems with revoltiog
inhumanity. In the mining d Strict of
Pennsylvania this wretch! work baa
been wroughtauon tbe tenants without
even a murmur of proteuatirin from Ihe
press. Tbe Lehigh Valley Coal company
Is the corporation that bas Instituted this
proceeding. Rappahannock is a small
mining village in tbe anthracite region.
Tbe buildings can scarcely be termed
bouir. Unpainted and mbe-raldy put
together, they are hardly fit to live in.
Wide Coyle Hhnws Fight.
In many cases the miner owns the hous
but not the land, and when the land own
er wants possession tbe Mjnailer has to
go. In a one-story structure, not over
fifteen feet square, lives Widow Coyle, a
mother of six children. She supported
herself and family by picking coal 00 a
dirt bank. She did not heed tbe sheriff's
notice to vacate tbe premis a. and when
depnty sheriffs came to the house to evict
herrhe showed a decided disposition to
remain. In ber efforts to hold on to tbe
property the woman struck one of the"
officers witb a poker. Her l'iyear-sld
daughter aasisted her mother to defy tbe
Left Theaa Ties! tm a Past.
Eager to carry out tbeir instructions,
tbe deputy sheriffs took mother and
daughter out of the building by force,
handcuffed them aud Iben tied the two
women to a post with a clothes line.
They then went on with the eviction, and
at its end wen. away, leaving tbe mother
and daughter tied fast, with in- protection
from the rain. Neigh bora took tbe smal
ler children into tbeir houses, and finally
released the unfortunate women. The
owner, learning of the fate which
befell the poor widow, commended
the action of the officers. He. however, re
lented and subsequently opened the door
of the shanty, and the almost frenaieil
woman moved the waters oaWrd furniture
back into it,
Mmathaa Has le On
Anolherrase equally shameful occurred
to the family ot a miner named Moua
ghan. The I-etiigh Valley Coa! company
wanted to make an extension of tbeir
coal dirt bank. Mnoagh.n'a hotisa was
In the way. He had to go. and was noti
fied to vacate. He paid no attention to
the notice and the nest thing a deputy
sheriff and his sssistants called. The
deputy rend aloud his warrant and then
totik out all the furniture except that
nsed bv the woman and her seven chil
dren. Then the men went on the roof
and began remov.n the shinj'es.
