Sherman people knew the advantages
which would come to them through the
open ballot. The shadow of the adminis
tration would deter men from voting ac
cording to conscience if they were com
pelled to rote openly. Men imbued more
or less with political ambitions and hopeB
could not afford to offend tbe "ins."
This was the rock which wrecked Fora
ker. But such fellows become revenge
fill. Foraker is popular with the young
men of the republican party, and tbr5
were the ones who hoped tc see him
elected. No doubt tbey will settle the
score, following their leader in tbe com
ing presidential election, and thus arises
another complication in tbe republican
national convention, for it will probably
tend more than anytbing else that could
have happened to bring Sherman out &s
a candidate, if for no ot er reicon to lny

Meoatar Hilt. or -w York.
Senator David B. Hill. democrat, ap
peared in tbe senate of the United Mates
yesterday as tbe successor of Willium M.
Evans, a republican. It is a noithle
event for the empire state. The demo
cratic record of New York is a proud
one. It gave its electoral vote iu 1 S 0
and 1904 for Jefferson, in 18"3 and 1812
for Madison: in 182B and 1820 for Mon
roe; in IS'8 and 1838 for Jackou; iu
18HG for Van Buren; in 184) for Pols; :n
1852 for Pierce; in 1868 for Seymour; in
1870 for Tilden, and in 1881 for Cleve
land. Amoni its demntraiic senators it hut had
George Clinton, Gouveroeur Morris, Mar
tin Van Buren, William L. Marry, Na
thaniel P. TalluiHge. 8d8 Wright.
lUniel S Dickinson, John A. Dix and
Francis. K. man. On the 4 h of Marrh
188 , "Me Too" Piait succeeded K rntn.
and since then until now the democratic
majority of the peopie of New York bus
been misrepresented by republicans in
tbe United States senate.
Senator Hill is by experience in public
affairs, by demonstrated force of charac
ter and by Lis sterling democracy a
worthy sujeess ir to the great demoer its
who have preceded him. The bitter jes
with whi. h he is assailed by republicms
is tbe strongest testimony to bis power
and prestige as a demoi rit. He is bated
because be is honest and fearless and be
is maligned because he cannot be beaten.

THE STRUCTURAL IRON TRUST.
Dow Carnegie and flla Aaaoclatea A p-

In extolling the McKinley tariff the
other day Mr. Andrew Carnegie mag
nanimously observed that his praise was
entirely dinnterested, inasmuch as the
rates of duty have been considerably re
duced upon the manufactures which he
Droduces. It was certainly very gener

On SaturiUiy notice was posted in
what arc kt own its the Lower and Mid

prices are 7i ceutd a cut for an operator
who has ch.rge of four looms, b'ti cents

02 cents a cut for six looms. The aver

The cause of the reduction is said to bo
the depressed condition of the market
and the slow sales. It makes a bleak
outlook for the weavers just at the bo
