Fit! DAY J NOVEMBER 0. 1ES3
Tuesday's election results in
the defeat of Butler and Butler
ism in Massachusetts, and the
election of a Republican by 10,087
majority; in the triumph of the
Democracy in Virginia, and the
deserved defeat of "boss" Mahone;
in a reversal of the Democratic
majority in New York of 193,000
to a figure just large enough to
swear by. In New York, as in
Massachusetts, the legislatnre is
Republican, insuring a United
States senator. In Minnesota the
Republican state ticket has 16,000
majority; in New Jersey the
Democrats have 5000 majority; in
Pennsylvania the Republicans are
ahead, and in Maryland the Demo
cratic majority is as usual. Con
necticut goes Republican; Missis
sippi is solidly Democratic. Every
one is satisfied, and even Butler
telegraphs his delight at getting
such a large vote.
Soile wise man once said
"Eternal vigilance is the price of
liberty." The remark continues
to be quoted because it cannot be
improved. A due regard for
municipal safety also suggests a
certain amount of vigilance. There
is a quiet movement at present to
form a little combination that may
result to Astoria's great injury, in
placing in the mayor's chair a man
who would be only a cat's paw for
an unprincipled vagabond. Dur
ing the past two Tcars Astoria has
been fortunate in the matter of
municipal officers. The placing
in power of a man with no inter
ests in the city and whose instinct
and education alike lead him to
affiliate with those who would
suck the blood of the city, would
be of lasting injury to this com
munity. It would be one of the
cases where the tail would wag
the dog, and the dog would steal
what he was set to guard. Should
the issue come between midnight
murder and public weal, the result
must be a victory for the right,
and for the material interests that
center in our prosperous city.
Ax official account of the opera
tions of the French army in Ton.
quin has just been issued by the
home government and gives a very
favorable view of the situation in
the east. The position of the
French, it is said, lias materially
improved. They now hold all the
strategic points in the Red river
delta, and only await reinforce
ments to complete the pacification
of the country. There can be
very little doubt that the actual
condition of affairs in the cast is
much graver than the official re
port would lead one to believe.
Very little light is thrown on the
matter by the dispatches which
are received from the scene of
trouble from time to time, but the
opinion gains ground that the de
ly in which the negotiations be
tween the French and the Chinese
governments bas resulted has gone
far to weaken the French position.
Referiuxg to the life-saving
stations on this coast the New
York Maritime Register says:
"Here are two thousand miles of
sea coast, a 'large part of it dan
gerous, with but a handful of sta
tions scattered at great intervals
along it. Six new stations are pro
posed for this coast, but they have
not yet been established. That
this should be done without further
delay is manifest. Commerce and
navigation along these shores are
increasing rapidly, and it will not
be long before six additional sta
tions will be insufficient to insure
adequate service on the coast.
More stations and efficient service
at each station are certainly needed
on the Pacific coast facts which
the superintendent of the service
and the. secretary of the treasury
should remember in making out
their plans for this season's work."
TnE present, session of the
"Washington Territory legislature
is not a very brilliant one. The
legislators seem at a loss how to
spend their time.
The Rev. Thos. Green of Chica
go says the devil is running all
the newspapers. This is rough on
the religious publications.
The New York Republican
state committee are credited with
having spent $1,000,000 in the
campaign just closed.
Old and Jietr Immigration.
The matter of immigration is
an important one in our national
life. The overflow of Europe, we
represent many creeds and nation
alities. In the early times those
who emigrated crossed the Atlan
tic in search of civil and religious
liberty; each pioneer had a pur
pose, each pioneer a high resolve;
the Puritans to New England, the
English Catholics to Maryland, the
French Huguenots to South Caro
lina. These handfuls of earnest
men and women made their im
press and exercised most potent
influence. Their ideas were fer
vent, their hopes were full of lofty
aspirations. In them lived the
spirit of the zealot, the martyr, the
reformer, and the enthusiast.
But increasing wealth and the
changes that effect succeeding
generations are notably influencing
the new immigration. The human
itarian; the seeker after truth; the
zealous lover of liberty, that now
come to this country are Jost in
the throng of those who arc im
pelled by motives of thrift and
gain, and who come solely to bet
ter their condition. This is but
natural; its effect attracts atten
tion. A Sacramento paper of re
cent date says that the only native
American merchant in that city
was closed out by the sheriff last
week. This is illustrative. Social
ly, politically, religiously, mechan
ically, industrially, commercially,
and intellectually, the United
States is in the hands of men who
have accepted it as a heritage, and
who will transmit it to a succeed
ing generation that will doubtless
view their existing order of things
with as much surprise as many of
the present day.
Ax ex-Confederate surgeon re
lates in the Cleveland Leader that
once during the war, while a terri
ble thunder storm was raging,
"Stonewall" Jackson ordered Gen.
Mahone to take his men and
charge the Union forces. Then,
tired out, Jackson Jay down under
a tree and fell asleep. Soon he
was aroused by one of Mahone's
aids, who said: "General, I am
sent by General Mahone for ord
ers. He says the rain has wet the
ammunition of his troops, and
wants to know whether he shall
return." Replied Jackson: "Ask
General Mahone it the same rain
which God sends to wet his ammu
nition will not wet that of the
enemy. Tell him to charge them
with cold steel."
The New York Sim cries
"fraud," and says those wicked
Republicans bought votes. The
delicate question arises whose
votes were bought. It isn't possi
ble that they were Democratic
Vaxderbilt has been giving his
ideas about "Wall street "bears."
He says "it is cheap to be a 'bear,'
and they haven't money enough to
be anything else."
