Republican Majority in The Next
House Reduced to 54.
Latest Returns Show Probable
Membership to ba Republi
licans, 207; Democrats,
131; Populists, 22.
Washington Post
Republicans in the Fifty-fifth con
gress will have a plurality over the
Democrats of 76, and a clear ma
jority over Darn jurats and Populists
of 54. These are the figures as they
appear on the face of the latest re
turns. In reaching this result the
two members from South Dakota,
which is still considered to be in
doubt, are given to the Republicans.
Wyoming’s representative is given to
the Demoorate,' a dispatch received
last night says the Republican has a
fighting chance yet. Col. Breckin
ridge, who has announced that he
will contest the seat with Evan Set
tle, bases his claim on technical ir
regularity. The doubtful districts in
Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, North
Carolina, Texas, and California have
all been placed.
Compared with the first table pub.
lished in The Post two days ago, the
one herewith given shows a net loa ß
to the Republican column of ten
members, eight of which are given to
the Democrats and two to the Popu
lists. Changes have occurred in nine
States. California shows two leas Re
publicans, who are defeated by Pop
uliste; Illinois, one Republican, de
feated by a Populist; Icdiaea, two
Republicans defeated by Democrats;
Kansas, one Damoorat less and one
Populist more; Kentucky, one Demo
crat more, taken from the Republican
column; Michigan, one Democrat,
now classed as a Populist; Nebraska,
one mono Democrat elected; North
Carolina, oho Democrat instead of a
Populist; a loss of throe Republican
congressmen given to the Democrats.
New Mexico’s Delegate will also be
a Democrat instead of a Republican.
The totals, including the three
Delegates, are 207 Republicans, 131
Demoorate, and 22 Populists, dis

After the Battle.
From all the information we can
gst up to data (Wednesday), it looks
like a land elide to the Onio man.
The Tribune is not greatly sur
prised at this, for wo were expecting
it. Wo can’t «iy, “wa told you so,’’
for wo didn’t, on the other hand wa
talked for Bryan, wrote for him, aud
worked for him with all cur might
dll the last vote was polled on last
Tuesday—but our calm better judg
ment told us ail the time that it
would be McKinley.
Following is our solution of the
land slide to the man of tariff pro
tection fame, as wo see it from a
middle-of-the-road Populist stand
The leaders of the Democratic,
party are primarily responsible for
it. Gen. Grant’s remark “that the
Democratic party could always be
depended upon to do the wrong
thing at the right time,” was cer
tainly verified in this campaign.
When the Executive Committee
of the Democratic party went back
on their agreement with the Popu
lists, made at the St Louis conven
tion to take down Sewall and put on
Tom Watson for the second place,
they were warned by our . leader,
Mr. Watson, that they were thereby
endangering the election of Mr,
Bryan. , They were told in so many
words that Populists would not vote
for Mr. Sewall, on a fusion ticket or
otherwise. Mr. Jones, the chairman
of the Democratic committee, re
plied that Populists were of no ao
count anyway, and let them “go to
the negroes where they belonged.”
About this time the chairman of
our committee, Mr. Butler, oom.
mencel a fusion dicker with the
Democrats. Mr. Watson warned
him that he was “dead opposed to
any such fusion, and that he know
perfectly well that Populists would
not endorse it by their votes.” lie
gave both committees timely notice
of the mistakes they were making,
yet they treated the man aud the
warning with the supremest coir
tempt, except to abuse and slander
him. Butler and Jones ran tbe fu
sion abortion until they were kicked
out of six States, Georgia and Ala
bama among the number, where
i hey had perfected all arrangements
to count in Mr. Bryan aud pre
ferred to d > that rather than
give the whits Populists of the
white counties a a chance to vote
for him on a fusion basis. The
campaign conduct of the Democratic
party as carried out was to take our
platform bodily and Mr. Bryan a
middle-of-the road Populist for tbe
arst place, and then cater to the
banks and money power by taking a
plutocratic banker for the second
place, and then make a trade with
the Pops to take down, Mr. Bewa ! l
and put on Mr. Watson—sndthento
show the cloven foot, by going back
on tbe contract to take down Sewall,
and to kick the Pops clean off their
own platform and wipe their feet on
them after they were off—and order
them to go to the negroes where
they belonged.
The ostensible leaders among the
Populists—namely, Butler, Allen,
Slewart, Dunning and others who
might be mentioned, are none of
them really Populists. They are
nondescript, mugwump, reform Dem
ocrats. In this campaign they have
been traitors to the Populist party,
and as far as they could, have
slaughtered .the one grand, true and
great leader in our party, Tom Wat
son, of Georgia.
If Populists could have stood all
this bad treatment and the slaughter
of their only leader, and then gaze
in the face of it all and voted for
Bryan and Sewall, They would not
be human. They could not do it,
but resented the insults and abuse in
many States and places by staying at
home. It was perfectly natural that
they should have done this.
The Democratic leaders seem to
have concluded from the manifest
patriotism of the Populists, and their
record for sacrifices and loyalty to
the reform cause, that they could
take their platform away from them,
kick them off of it, wipe their feet
on them and tell them to go! and
that then the Pops would gst down
on their knees to them and ask for
the privilege of voting for Bryan
and Sewall.
Thera is another cause for Mr.
Bryan’s defeat which is perhaps more
potent and far reaching than the
above, namely the revolt of the gold
standard Democrats. “A hone di
vided against itself can’t stand,”
neither can it win in our election.
Under all the circumstances The
Tribune is not displeased st the re
sult. The good we see to come out
of it all is this: The utter extinction
of the Democratic party as such.
The noble, peerless Tom Watson
will ba understood at large hereafter,
and he will be appreciated according
to his real worth and matchless pat
riot sm; while the leaders of the
Damotratic party and those of his
own who have betrayed him will
drop out of sight in the near future
and go down to obsenri y unhon
ored, unwept and. unsung.—Gadsden
Literary Notes.
That clever literary raconteur,
“Drooh,” who in private life is Rob
ert Bridges, has joined the writers
who are flocking in such numbers to
The Ladies' Home Journal. “Drooh”
commences in the December issue of
that magazine a series of “Droch’s
Literary Talks,” which will hereafter
be a regular editorial feature of the
Journal. Mr. Bridges will aim his
work more directly at girls, and gos
sip about books rather than review
them. They will be, in short, “lit
erary talks.”

the New York World both for $1.40
Populists Everywhere Should Reor
ganize and Plant their Colors
for The Next Campaign.
The one grand mistake made was
in not calling the Populist national
convention before the Democratic
convention, nominating a ticket and
going before the country on principle
instead of,policy.
II .d this bien done, the Populists
would have won more electoral votes
than the dead Damoiratu party
which would almost surely have nom
inated Hill for President on a plat
form pledged to international bi
Os course McKinley would have
been elected, although he might have
had a tight equ eza to get in. An i
there is no telling but what the fates
may have given the Populis s the
victory or have thrown the eleoticn
to congress for settlement.
Fusion certainly killed the Green
back party, which revived after a hard
struggle as the Peoples party.
Fusion will kill any party. The
old abolition party never fused, and
was finally successful.
And now for a complete reorgani
zation of the Peoples party. This
done, and the Democrats can never
win another national election. This
is as certain as certain can ba.
But there must be no fusion wilh
any other party an any time, under
any circumstances.
The Peoples Party is not dead any
more than the silver issue is dead.
Let all organizations at once as
sume their late position, and work
for converts. In two years time the
People’s party will be stronger than
ever and have power to win the
the next national election with elec
toral votes to spare.
In trying to kill the the People’s
party, the Democratic party sealed
its doom. It is deader now than it
was twelve months ago, becauss its
seeming strength in the late cim
paign was borrowed from disaffected
Republicans and from Populists who
voted lor silver and for Bryan.
This defeat is nothing. Remem
ber, the Populist party is new and
young, yet, if it holds its organiza
tion it will certainly abserb the hon
est, silver Democrats, and the gold
element will go into the Republican
party, where it belongs. In fact, w* .
have not had a'Demodratio adminis'
tration since Buchanan’s time, and
are not likely to have another until
the true Democracy—tha People’s
party, get into power.
Let us reorganize at once aud
fight the present Republican Demo
cratic party to the death.
Seeing the treachery of the Demo
crats in the late campaign, Populists
should return to their allegiance and
fight for princepie.
Reorganize, reorganize, reorganize!
Ever alive to the artistic tastes of
the times, The Art Amateur gives
this month a lavish selection of ex.
amplss of the work of the early Eng
lish masters, the “craze” for which
still continues. The number is more
than usually rich with its two charm
ing colored supplements—one a rich,
bright and glowing study of geran
isms by Clara Goodyear, the other a
delightful ’truly of out-door life, by
Rhoda H les Nickells, about which,
by the bye, the editor has a carious
tale to tell in his Note Book. It is a
st xy of a stolen picture of which
more will doubtless be heard later.
But as usual the real value of the
magazine lies in the practical papeis
for art students of all classes. Tnere
are designs for the new fashionable
maroueteria painting—infinite sug
gestions, designs and motives includ.
ing some useful Don'ts for china
painters (indeed there is no mags,
zine so useful to the china painter as
The Art Amateur). Metal Work
and Pyrography on Wood and on
Leather—the latter especially, are
handled in detail and valuable hints |
are given, some English ideas for
House Decoration will be found both
novel and useful, and the illustrated
description of Mr. Harry Fenn, the
artist’s home will bo read with inter
est. Landscape Painting, Still-life
Painting, Skatching, Illustrating,
Advice to Art Students, Art Notes
and Hints, are all practical and good, I
and the numbar is more than usually ;
complete in every department, The !
publisher authorizes us to repeat the i
offer made by him last month to
send to any one who quotes this
notice, a spacimsn copy of this issue
together with the valuable little
“Manual of Practical Hints for Be
ginners,” post free, on receipt of 25
cents, tha usual pries of the maga
zine being 35 cents or $4.00 a year
Applicants should ask for tha list of
special offers to new subscribers this
year. (Montague Marks, 23 Uaion
