Is tbe recent campaign tbe New York
Herald offered a prize of $20 to the per-
on who should most closely predict the
actual plurality of the successful candi
date for governor of New York. There
were tens of thousands competitors, but
the prize was won by Michael Moss,
described as a hard working journeyman
carpenter, whose envelop was handed in
Oct. 11, and found to contain the exact
figures of Governor-elect Fowlers' plur
Muscatine News-Tribune: Where
the prohibition and tariff issues respec
tively controlled in the late election is
easily proven by the returns. The 19
river counties which this year give
the democrats 20,994 plurality, in 1SSS
gave them 8,592. The democratic pain
is 12,715. This can be put to the credit
of the prohibition question. Tbe other
counties of the state, interior, which
gave 40.313 republican plurality in 18S8,
this year went republican by but 12.715
This Is a republican loss and a democratic
gain of 27,598, and in tbe main is to be
ascribed to the tariff question. This is
what the democrats have accomplished
in the agricultural counties where the
"corn field vote" controls. They have
gained two votes K the corn fluids to one
in the river cities.
'riM)t and Reed.
One of the scenes In the Fifty-first
house in which Speaker Crisp and ex
Speaker Reed, then in the chair, figured,
is thus described by Amos J. Cummiogs,
in a newspaper letter. Mr. Cummings
is a member of congress frcm New York:
"The clerk can read the journal nitt
out objection," said tbe man from Maine.
"I object," replied Mr. Crisp. "Such
action is unprecedented. Such a sugges
tion has never been made in tbe history of
"Well," replied the speaker with some
acerbity, "it's time that it was made."
At this the republicans raised a shout
of encouragement. Crisp remained
standing, perfectly imperturbable, until
the tumult had subsided.
"That is the judemeni of the chair," he
then replied . "The chair is not the mas
ter of the house, but its servant. He
must obey its order."
Reed was white with rage. Democrats
broke into applause in their turn, and
the republicans cried for the regular
"The gentleman from Georgia need
not recommence, " the speaker threaten
ingly observed as soon as quiet was re
stored. With great dignity Mr. Crisp replied:"
"The gentleman will insist upon his
rights. No tyrant can take them from
At this the republicans fairly screan.ed
for tbe regular order. Mr. Rowell.chair

shouted, "that theremaiks of tbe gentle

"No more so than tbe remarks of tbe
speaker." Crisp calmly replied.
This temark touched the czar like a
hot iron. Ilia eyea flashed, bis cheeks
flushed, and he brought his gavel down
with do lblefold vengeance.
"The gentleman from Georgia will take
hia seat," he roared.
Crisp remained as calm as a May morn
ing. Un'ike many of hia colleagues when
suffering from similar tyrannical out
bursts, le recognized the admenitiea of
"CerUlnly, the gentleman from Geor
gie will take his seat," he replied, with
perfect composure, "but he will rise,
resent, t.nd reply to any similar intima
tion from the cbair here or elsewhere."
