FOR PRESIDENT, BENJAMIN HARRISON. FOR VICE PRESIDENT, WHITELAW REID. Another blow to the Democratic party. The Supreme Court of Idaho has decided that Mormons can’t vote. Dr. Eainsford, the Episcopal clergy man, who is going to take the stump for Cieveland, is the same Dr. Eainsford who proposed that church members should go into the saloon business to make it reputable. It was the most nat ural thing in the world for him to turn up in the Democratic party. Judge Gresham declares that the state ment that he would vote the Democratic ticket and take the stump against Har rison is “unauthorized and gratuitous.” The story about Judge Cooiey is equally unauthorized and gratuitous. Up to date the only recruit to the Democratic ranks with any claim to national distinc tion is Wayne McVeagh, and at heart he has been a Democrat for at least four years. Tlie nomination of Gilroy, one of Tam many’s “big four,” for mayor of New York, must make it pleasant for the New York Post and other Mugwump or gans, for in the interest of Grover Cleveland they have got to support him in face of the fact that for some years past they have been characterizing him in terms far from complimentary. The Mugwump is getting used to crow, how ever. The Kennebec Democrat hears that in the town of China more than thirty voters were paid $5 each by a prominent Be publican to stay away from the polls. At the election of 1S90 the Democratic vote in China was 93, so that about a third of the Democratic party of that town sold out, if the Democrat’s story is true. We have been given]to understand for some weeks past that the salvation of the coun try depended upon the Democratic par ty. And here is a third of them in one town selling out for $5 a head. Those people who believe that salvation must come, if at all, through the Democracy, have reason, in the face of this showing, to feel verv melancholv. indeed. For ourselves we are inclined to think that the Democracy are not the venial set that the Hon. Benjamin Bunker paints them. THE CALAMITY SHOUTEBS. Two of the chief enemies of the Demo cratic party this year are the statistician and the business man. Every time a Democratic organ or a Democratic lead, er hears that a statistician has been in vestigating the industries of the country or a section of it, and is about to make a report, a sort of congestive chill seizes the leader or the editor. They feel that more calamity is coming—not calamity of the sort they want and are relying up on to elect Grover Cleveland and a Dera' ocratic House, that is business depres. sion, languishing industries, and unem ployed or poorly paid workingmen—hut political calamity. The first chill of the kind was experienced when Mr. Pec k, labor commissioner of New York, ap pointed originally by Grover Cleveland, and rc-appointed by David Bennett Hill, issued Iiis report concerning the indus tries of Now York State. They had been looking forward to Mr. Peck’s report with a good deal of pleasurable anti cipation. Kuo wing that lie was a good Democrat, and heartily desired the suc cess of the party, they naturally expect ed that he would take advantage of his position to give them a “boom.” But Peck, singularly enough, preferred loy alty to the facts of the case to loyalty to the Democratic party. Ilencx the tale of adversity which tliex predicted and i prayed for provei to be a story of prosperity. To say that consternation seized upon the Demo cratic leaders is putting it very mildly. They were completely panic stricken, and each one of them set to work in the way that first popped into his head to down Peck. Some of them stigmatized him as a ‘‘ridiculous person” without any knowledge of statistics, forgetting in their wrath that they were by this pro cess not only discrediting Peck, but also those two shining lights of the Dempe x-acy, Grover Cleveland and David Den nett Hill. The view of others was that Peck should be put iu jail, foi-getting that to put Peck in jail would nht put Peck’s report in jail. There was general agreement among all of them that Peck in showing the existence of prospex-ity, when the Democrats had wanted calami ty had been guilty of the most heinous crime of stabbing his party in the back. Hardly had the Democracy begun to re cover from the diabolical work of Peck, when the labor commissioner of Indiana produced a report that also shoxved that J.1. _1 _ M' 1 _ another chill though not quite so pro nounced as the first. The Massachusetts commissioner followed suit and there was another spell of shaking. The cen sus statistics confirmed Peck and the other state commissioners, but being the work of wicked Republicans the Democ racy were able to bear that with more equanimity. But the statisticians were not the only enemies of the Democracy. The frequent testimonies of the business men to the prosperous condition of busi ness, and the general report of the mer cantile agencies in the same direction filled ttyeir cup of misery to the brim. For weeks and months the Democratic campaign has been a struggle to con vince the country that all the statisticians have been laboring in the interest of the Republican party and that all the busi ness men have been bought up by that organization to affirm that business was good when in fact it was bad. On the stump the Democratic speakers have done little else than shout calamity, while the organs have been supplement ing their efforts by painting lurid pic tares of alleged misery consequent upon the McKinley tariff. Weave inclined to think that an earthquake that had swept several cities or a big fire that had laid waste a large territory or even an epi demic would have been welcomed by them at any time during the last two months, as a valuable assistant in their campaign of calamity. To Be Handsomely Housed. Germany's building at the World’s fair at Chicago will be very largely the result of private enterprise, the German manufacturers having contributed lib erally. It will also be a rather com posite structure, uniting apparently the architecture of several different ages, and its interior decoration will represent all the schools of German art and nearly all the eras. The main building will be 133 feet in length and 106 in width, but from the THE GERMAN BUILDING, center and rear an extension will be built out for 50 feet, making the central section seem very long. This extension is to be known as “the chapel,” and all the exhibits in it will be of an ecclesias tical nature, such as altars, painted win dows and other representations of the successive stages of German art. Above “the chapel” will rise a bell tower about 100 feet in height. In the main building the walls will be covered by paintings of the Nuremberg and Munich schools, and a fine effect will be produced by leaving the main interior above the second floor open to the roof, thus making a high vaulted ceiling. The plans were drawn by an official architect in Germany. The best always . . . costs . . . Hornby’s Oatmeal A little more than the poorest. Portland & Rumford Falls Railway. Notice to Contractors.
