A REMARKABLE UAMIPAIGN.
The canvass which has just closed will
long be remembered as one of the most
quiet and apathetic contests in our po
litical history. The complete absence
of any excitement or unusual demon
stration has been variously explained.
Some think they see the beginning of a
new era in our politics which is to be
marked by a calm and thoughtful dis
cussion, and the elimination of pyro
technics and parades. Others attribute
the tluietude of the present canvass to
the fact that old candidates, not one of
whom was the choice of the majority of
his own party, and old issues which had
been fought over before, were again.pre
sented. Probably both causes had
something to do with the lack of inter
est and enthusiasm among the people.
There is little doubt that had the re
publicans nominated Blaine, and the
democrats Hill or Boles, we should have
seen a hot and fiercely fought campaign
and the public mind aroused to a high
pitch. Had new questions been before
the people, even with the old candi
dates, the discussion would have been
livelier and the public meetings larger.
Had 'the two parties taken opposite
sides of the silver question, too, we
should have had a bitter sectional tight
with the south and west arrayed against
Another reason for the indifference
we have witnessed as to the outcome
this year possibly may be found in the
growing weariness of our people with
frequent elections. We believe it would
have pleased a great majority of the
American pieople it they had not been
compelled to go through the agitations
of a presidential election at this timne.
l'ractically our presidential contests are
almost unending. More than a year be
fore the president's term expires the
skirmishing preliminary to the next na
tional convention begins. The candi
dates are before the people for nearly
six months prior to election lday. Nearly
half a year intervenes between the eleo
tion and the inaugu ration -a period of
anxiety and uncertainty. And the aver
age president does not reach tihe middlu
of his term before he begins to ligure onl
We believe there wil! surely be a
growing deiiimanid for a six year term for
the president and for his non-oligibllity
to re-election. lThe country has not
forgotten the scandalous use of power
iandrl patronage that brought about the
defeat of Blaine last June and the re
lnominatioin of the present incumbent of
I the oflice in spite of the dissatisfaction
that his administration had given to the
majority of his own ipaLrty. Mr. Cloeve
I land's renomiination in 18H88 was perhaps
exceptional in this respcrt, as his forc
ing of the tariff slsue, a few montls bie
fore the convention assemlbledl, nlm~le
hIis nominlation a logical seqlulnco, andl
he did not find it neceesary to ernplloy
the arts of paltronage. But it dlo)es inot
need argnument to convince any thinlk
ing man tllhat a piresident would be less
likely to yield to the allurements of
power, and would dilscllharge hiis dlutit,
mlore fearlessly, it tbhe prize of ronolli
lnation were not dangling before his
eyes. We have seen in many of the
states a tendency to lengthenou the ternms
of their governors. New York a few
years ago extended the terra of her ex
ecutive from two years to three; 'enn
sylvania did the same. New Jersey gives
her governor a three-years term and
makes him ineligible to re-election.
''he new states have generally given
longer terms to their governors than tho
an old. In Mohitana the governor el.te
o this year serves four years, f

In the legislature, ona brethl of hbic

change. The people have it it 'gi
power every two years to chbuk a Ad
ministrative policy they do not .lik
We have a signal instance of this in th,
political revolution of 1890, midway ii
Mr. Harrison's term. The people dic
not approve of the force bill and highe
taxation and drove out of power, in one
branch of congress, the party of thi
administration, and installed in its
place a powerful opposition majority
which holds office during the rest o
Mr. Harrison's term and serves as a
complete obstruction to the policy he
The temper of the people, as maui
tested in the canvass this year, indloates
clearly that they were not eager to entol
into a contest for a change of the presi
dency, and that they would have been
satisfied to give Mr. Harrison two years
more, provided there was a cons'itu
tional barrier to his renomination. We
should not then have seen the present
dicgraceful scramble of the officeholders
for his re-election, and with ambition
for power removed he would have made
a better president in the closing months
of his administration.
One term, six yearsl Let us have the
question thoroughly agitated, and ape if

THE NOVEMBER ATLANTIC.
Mr. George Edward Woodberry, in his
admirable paper on John Greenleaf Whit
tier, has contributed perhaps the ablest
critical review on Whitties's place in liter
ature which either has appeared or will ap
pear; and as is fitting in the pages of the
Atlantic, to which Whittier has been so
constant a contributor, Dr. Holmes has
contributed a poem to his memory. The
feeling which the Autoelat shows in these
verses is so real that one forgets their poetic
form, and they seem but the natural out
pouring of the affection of a brother poet.
Elizabeth Stuart Phelps has also a touching
poem on Whittier, which was written as he
An installment of Mrs. Deland's "Story
of a Child" is given; and certainly no more
sympathetic picture of the hopes and rears
and temptations of childhood has ever bton
written than these chronicles of the adven
tures.of Ellen; nor has a more idyllic
elderly courtship been pictured that that of
Mr. Tommy Dove and Miss Jane. Mr. W.
ienry Winslow contributes a paper on Mr.
Jolley Allen, a revolutionary, worthy and
loyalist whose misfortunes lead one to
consider a little that olass of persons of the
revolution who thought that right was on
their side, although victory 'ws not. Dr.
Hale's paper, in his series on "A. New Eng
land Boyhood," is devoted to social rela
tions and gives an interesting aoiount of
hie religious training at the Brattle street
church. He also sketches the lecture sys
tem, tea parties and the fire department of
old Boston days. So that it will be seen
that his paper is Inclusive as to its subjects.
A short story in two parts by Margaret
Collier Graham, called " The Withrow
Water Right;" chapters of Mr. Crawford's
"Don Orsino;" an able unsigned political
essay on "The Two Programmes of 1892;"
a paper by Samuel W. Dike on "Sociology
in the Higher Education of Woman;" a
paper on Breton folk-songs, by Theodore
Bacon, with translations, and a poem by
Lizette Woodworth Reese are among the
other attractions of the number. Hough

CHANGE IN TELEGRAPH RATES.
The Western Union Makes Some Coeeea
siaon to Customers.
Several changes in the rates for tele
graphic messages made by the Western
Union company, which went into effect on
Oct. 1, have escaped much notice, exeept
among those who have considerable tele
graphing to do, and to whom the slightest
reduction in rates means great saving of
'Ihe most important change which has
been made is the manner of charging for
numbers. Formerly, in a number, every
figure was counted as one woed, but
under the new system figures, letters,
commas, points and bars of division,
or any combination thereof (as in
cipher messages), are counted three figures,
letters, or signs to the word. To prevent
liability to error, numbers and amounts
should be written in words, and this makes
no diffe ence in the charges.
Other changes which have been made are
in referenos to the body of a message where
dictionary words, initial letters, surnames
of persons, names of cities, towns. villages,
states or territories, or namues of the Cana
dian provinces ere counted and charged for
as only one word, while in the names of
counties and countries all the words are
Thnus the names of cities and towns, as
New York, ht. Louis, White Plains, count
