Now York last Tuesday. Tammany is
no hotter than she should bo, but pro
bably better than all the rest. She is
atlcast Democratic,:;nd always stood by
tho South, win u she could help herself
in the game. All the rest, beyond Ma

against us, except New Jersey. New

Low Is probably a well moaning man,
bat he could not purify bis environ

stables of AugeaS, where stood some
twenty thousand oxen, was a hero In a
heroic ago, and was deified In the end.
No; the spoils wore the stakes and It
was simply a shutUing of the cards as to
who held the longest and the strongest
suit. George was honest, hut was as
ono to ten thousand and had no chance
to win if he had lived. Good for the
South, though Bryan and Tillman
wanted him, that h'o lost. He was a
fanatic. Ho wanted no private owner
ship of land. The South has nothing
ol8o but land. All railroads, telegraph
linos, banks, bonds and bacon belong
North. If the Georgo theory gains
strength thon tho count ry goes over to
tho socialists and Southern civilization
and tho hopes of our children and
children's children aro doomed for all
time. Only those politicians favor
Goorgo and the Georgo idea, who know
that thoy can never climb to the up
permost rounds of the ladder under
So, lotus be content with Tammany.
Tho millionaires and plutocrats at the
North own no hind comparatively.?
Confiscating tho lands would not hurt
thorn and would beggurise the South

The result of elections in other
States has little significance, it is an
"off" year. It scarcely rises to tho
dignity of an "oil" year. Elections
next yoar may give a taste of what ts
to come in 1900.
Tho other olections go the usual
way, oxcept?"My Maryland." She

Gorman therefore >s retired to private
lifo and will repent at leisure. Tho
soculled Democrats of Ohio made a
good fight and it did not look healthy
for Boss Banna, but at this writing it
appears that he will land, and Wash
ington will bo his villa for six years.
Somewhere in Ohio Banna has n
handsome winter home -then u palace
floating upon one of the great lakes
for his summer outing and why not a
palace near the seat of majesty, the
"White House? it will he but a hop,
?klp and a jump to button-hole Mc

When they twitted LucullllS about bis

that, he was as the birds that changed
their homes with the seasons and would

They may be this or thoy may be that.
Up in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts
"tho boys" did not make the game in
teresting and it was a walk over for
tho broadcloth gents. Jones, (of Ark
ansas), and Bryan, however, are en
couraged at tho outcome, exchange
congratulatory wiro mossages, and
plume thema lves with the consolation
that it will he all right for him who
waits with patience. It is sad to read
