All that they ay ia support of their claim is that "the ti ie is running the.r way," refer ence be. 114 had, probably, to tae acUi s.ti'.n of Mr. MacVeagh, whom Iavil U. Hill classes as one of the "venom ous das of political hypocrites and mountebanks." The democratic assertion is aa easy one to make. Ttie republicans say that the electoral vote of New Y'ork Will be cait fur Harrison and lbid, protection, reciprocity aud honest money. They make no claim as to th-j size of the majority, although they beliove trat it will be a substantial one. flie repub t.cans give time reasons for their be l.efs. They are confident because of tno general prosperity of the state, and particularly of that clas which makes up the lody of the party, the wage-earner, democratic tate officials have showa that there was a net increase of wages ia lvJl of i-'j,:;77,'J'io; a net increase of production of ?31 ,.'115,130; a net in creasy of savings bank deposits of $13, 7 V.4H; a netlncrease in investments in building and loan associations of ?IS,7'JJ,7Jo; an increase in the value of real and personal property of $bV3l7, 7o3; and a net increase of deposits in .date, banka of $l V-3-,3t. Hut there is another aud more signi ficant cause for republican confidence. The registration, rural and city, which has jut been completed, points toward republican victory. Why? Because the enormous increase in the registra tion exists not in the lower wards and the Ilowery section of New Y'ork City, where corruption and democracy are strongest, but in the upper parts of the town and in the annexed districts, where republicanism is strongest. Then too, in the rural districts of the state, where the big republican majorities are piled up, the registration has won derfully increased over former years. All this points to republican victory. It will be noted that, unlike demo cratic confidence, republican confi dence is based upon facts, upon which there can bo placed but one interpre tation. ' Iemoortic newspapers and orators, or rather stump, speakers, continue to claim that the colleges are with them this year. But as usual the facts are against them. A thorough canvass of Howard university which, itis claimed, is the banner democratic college, has just been completed and shows 1,114 republicans, Sol democrats, 31 prohibi tionists and 14 undecided. This can vass was prosecuted by the collegedaily, the Crimson, and is consequently not open to question. At Y'ale, the rolls of the republican club show a mem bership of 1,-uO, of the democratic club only 1Q. At the University of Michigan a recent political census show l,V republicans and ''00 demo crats. And so it is at nearly every col itZ9. I'.ut the democrats will not abandon their claim in sp.te of this. Sun a roii 1ok.v has maintained a haughty nul ilerence as to the result ever since J. Kiley Deun.son knocked him out in the people's party conven tion. The senator is a foxy politician. He .au see defeat ahead of him and is w;e enough to have an explanation for it prepared in advance. Kx-Mayor Meketw is qu ttly attending to busi nfss while popular sentiment crystai iics in hi favor. Or democratic friends seem to think that tney are justified in the tx l:rf t.K.at th: county will go democratic Tii.s lei.ef will be so rudely shocked by trie republican victory next Tues day t.t they will be ashamed to con fess tiiat tl.ey pver barlored it.

The Nebraska conference reported by Mre. J. 11. Woodcock showed some auxiliaries aud bauds organized. Mrs. Helen I. Ferguson of I'tica, N. Y. submitted tne report for tho north ern New Y'ork, showing a steadily in creasing number of earnest consecra ted workers. Tho report of the north Ohio was read by Mrs. N. S. Albright, Several new societies have been organized and much good work has been accom plished. Mrs. J. E. Gilbert of the bureau of the east central states submitted a lengthy report.

The feet of their race niut speed along the highway of skilled labor, the tongue touched that it may hold fast to bound wordii while eyes shall not desire the bread of idleness because the hands are ever doing with their might. All stones have not been removed nor rough places made smooth. We have ever seen the 'Here after in the now' when out of the frag ments of a broken, disappointment and aimless humanity there ehall come forth a womanhood full of truth and of much virtue as to decide race morals."

Friday will be Ieaconess' day, and an interesting program has been ar ranged. It is but 1 little over four years since the M. K. church adopted the order of leacou-tfea among us workers. The work has increased so rapidly and has been received with such favor by the people that they n w have twenty seven Heaconesa homes aud over '260 deaconesses. Of these homes the Woman's home niis-ionary society has in affiliation with it eleven homes at Ha timore, Brooklyn, Buffalo, HeaMoi nes, Petroit, (rand Kapids, I'hiladeiphia, l'ittsburg, San Francisco, Syracuse and Washing ton. The central home and training school is the Lucy Webb Hayes mem orial deaconess home and lLble school at Washington, of which Dr. I. N. Iolhy is the superintendent. The importance of this work is such that the Woman's home missionary society has devoted one day to the discussion of methods of organizing and main taining Leaconees homes. Thero will be representatives of boards of trustees and superintendents of Deaconess homes who will mako statements as to the homes. In the evening there will be a mass meeting addressed by the liev. Dr. l'otts, one of the mosti eloquent speakers in Michigan; the Hcv. Dr. I. N. Dolby, the general superintendent of the deaconess work, and others. Kvery one is cordially invited to at tend the meeting, one of the nio.st in teresting and important to be held. l.TruiuK I,rou. I Mrs. Anna Norton a miisionary at Albuquerque, New Mexico addressed the evening session on the work in that territory among tho Spanish. She recited the difficulties encountered with the native language and the great opposition with which they are met from the people in that isection. By prayerful and steady work a mission with a good membership was establish ed but it is on the dechue for the lack of money for working facilities. The children are ready and willing to learn. The parents are deep in ignorance but they have kind and susceptible natures. During vacations many of tho children rather remain at the mission than to return to their homes. In sev eral 'instances parents have been con verted through their children, who have attended the mission schools. Dr. I. N. Dolby, of the Lucy Webb Hayes Deaconuesa Home, at Washinc ington, addressed the neetiug brielly on the work of the deaconesses, and Mrs. I'.rowne, of Kast Tennessee, a col ored missionary worker, sang some jubilee songs, and the meeting ad journed for the Jreccption at Mrs. Km. ma U. sell's on South College avenue.

K. church, tendered a reception to tho delegates, visitors and friends of the Woman's Home Missionary society at her handsome residence, No. NO South College avenue. About "00 of the women and their friends were present during the evening. Mrs. His sell was assisttd by Mrs. J. K. Gilbert of Indianapolis, Mrs. Dr. Van Andaof Indianapolis, Mrs. W.J. Aldnch of Muskegon, Mrs. H. M. Joy, Mrs. O. II. Wilmarth. Mrs. K. G. Studley and Mrs. A. M. Gould and received tho guests m the spacious parlors. The rooms were handsomely decorated with maiden hair ferns, roses and chrysanthemums. Miss Maud Hughes presided at the harp. Delicious light refreshments wer served in the dining room, aud at 10:39 tho assembly dispersed. Careless Custom. Motormen on the Taylor street and Wealthy avenue car line have fallen into an extremely careless custom. At Kast street, where they switch to make the return trip, they are in tho habit of allowing the motor cars to back down the lull between Wells street and Lut street with a motornun stand nz on the rear end of his car. The cars run down the grade very quietly and are in danger of running down some unwary person who attempts to cros the track. City Hail Flag. At last the l!ag on the city hall has teen taken down.
