The free-silver conspiracy has been so beater
that tbe man who tries to revive It should meet
only contempt from many who have beeu its
allies. The country In no conceivable event will
consent to lie tleecml by the little clique of mine
owners who want to make people pay 100 cent*
for silver worth ."?o ?cuts or less. The power ()f
that grasping monopoly is broken, and the drop
of 8 cents iu the bullion price of silver yester?
day showed that the mine-owners see tire point.
A Houae overwhelmingly Ilt-publlcan blocks all
possible degradation of the currency, not to speak
of a Presidential veto. It manors not here
whether the Republicans have over two to one

impossible and to pass any revenue measure

enough to swep away the anxiety about tbe
money question, which has played so large a
part in the msrketa for three or four months.

the Ineumiuj President will lie sustained in posl

fact for the country ?a that the incalculable peril

Nor should ti?, mora! influence of the tremen?
dous popular majority for McKinley be over
l??okeil. II will assuredly go far to settle much
that might Otherwise be o|)?'ii to dispute. To ap?
preciate ils impressivem-ss, it is only lieceeaary
to rcincinlier Unit in recent Piesldentlal etec
lions the question has been decided bjf a plural?
ity only. In 1880 Qarfteld had a majority of
Illl.HtMi against him, in 1884 Cleveland bad a
majority of 317,000 against htm, In 1888 all oppo?
nents together had u majority or DOU.OO0 over
Hai'iisiiii. and in 1802 all opponents together ha<l
a majority of ?iimi.ikhi over Cleveland. Rut Mo
KiiiN'.v comes in with a magnificent majority of
800,000 or mure over all opponents. Til?' influ?
ence of such a decision upon the future action
of patties will lie great.
The triumphant election of McKinley was due
to a grand nprining of the people. Honesty and
Obedience to law were issues which stirred the
higher impulses of the mass of citizens and
tuned what nlfhl have been bodies of partisans
Into an army of patriots. The nomination of
McKinley recruited from a popular demand of the
?rank ami tile of Republican voters, and his elec?
tion was ih<> work of the rank and tile of Ameri?
can citizenship. ?
It was the privates who fought the battle and
routed the enemy. Ruf the general Is not With?
out DOBor. The victory Is the people's, but tlie
leadership was his No retrospect of the enm
paiga can fail to recngniae the admirable char?
acter of Its management Never did a National
Committee chairman conduct a campaign with
greater ability and more serene mastery of the
situation than did Mr. Hanna. He exercised an
unmatched personal influence with superb dig?
nity and niodestv. Made the chief target of
nearly all the persona! abuse Indulged In by the
Rryanites, he so conducted himself and the busi?
ness of the committee that the attacks never be?
came anything but the merest abuse, which car?
ried no weight even with the Rryanites them?
selves. His wor'c as th?' friend of Major Mc?
Kinley previous to the nomination was char
flctetized by a dear understanding of popular
feeling and a Arm devotion to true political
catholicity, and the same qualities have ln-;-n
brilliantly manifested in his subsequent actlvi
ties. He has been a thorough Republican. He
has not for a minute surrendered or let anybody
think his party surrendered the beliefs which
have made it the patty It is.
I'?Ut with this self-respecting loyalty to Ills
own principles, this manir refusal to court favor
by hiding the Republicanism of the Republican
party, has been combined a patriotic recognition
of the character of the contest forced by the
Chicago platform. The threat of anarchy and
repudiation changed a political contest into a
struggle for National honor, and brought to the
support of th"> Republican ticket men who had
not the sliglites: sympathy with Republicanism.
It was no small achievement for the director of
the Republican campaign to lead his own forces
and not offend his allies. Kven the UPMl ardent
l"r?-e Trader recognized his sincerity and the
propriety of holding the Republicana together
on their own platform, and tie? most partisan
Republican linder his leadership came to a
broader understanding of the more than par
tisan character of the contest.
Mr. Haunt lias shown generalship of a high
order. He carried on a practical campaign on
the plane of hones*, straightforward political
work, and with masterly power of organisa*
tlon gave the moral forces of the country ?
chance for effective expression. Tin- great pop?
ular feeling was ready to make Itself known, but
It reqiiiml leadership of a high order to bring
the full revelation. That leadership Mr. Hanna
had. and he is to Is? congratulated for his share
in the victory.
The signs of a healthy advance In the Smith
generally are so marked that they would excite
wide common: were It nor fur the ov? .'\v holm in g
lateral felt in the political campaign and its re?
sults. It has been note?! for several years pOal
that the spirit of narrow sectionalism is dying mit
in the South. We do not say that the people (if
(he South were atltkfetber to blame for their
sect ?"iiiillsin. lVrli!i|is. tinder the clrciim
ttBMM, it was an Inevitable heritage of the
war and the passions engendered by it. It
was not Strange that those who had conscien?
tiously fought for the lost caaes should for
years hold aloof from those who had defeated
them. I'ouhtlcss, too, Ihere were Individuals
in tho North who ?lid not always Beet the
South In a conciliatory spirit, and out, of the
very excess of their loyalty forgot the virtue of
gentleness. Be that as it may, the North to?
day is both more able und more willing to bury
the unhnppy hatreds of (ho past than It was
at the clang of the war, and to recognize (ho
nobler spirit of National unity and brotherhood
Which is Unding utterance In the South ?is in
the North. In nothing has Major McKinley
more truly reflected the s 'titlmonts of the
North to-day than In his messages of sympathy
and good will to the South.
But H is not alone In its feelings that the
South is giving evidences of now life. Its
, ?-ouimerco and Industries are showing a healthy
growth, and in some States Its farmers are rela?
tively more prosp?rons than those of Northern
States. Last year the progressiv?? city of At?

Altgeld was a candidate for re election to the
Governorship of Illinois. To Ihe prosecution
of Ills campaign be gave all his unquestionably
great intellectual and tactical ability. Abundant
means were at his command. The party ma?
chinery was at his service. The motto of the
whole campaign was that lie must be re
elected. No matter If Rryan himself was ?le
feated, Altgeld must lx> returned to the <?ov

way to New-York and made an elaborate pub i

cratiC ticket one-half so much as to get. if pos?
Sfble, some reflex odor of sanctity from the |
pure purlieus of Tammany, which would
strengthen his own campaign at home, for his
own seltish ends. And now, after all. he is de?
feated, overwhelmingly defeated. It is a sorry
day for burglars and bomb throwers and mail
robbers and railroad traln-wn-ckers and all
Anarchist? and criminals In general. In Illinois
and elsewhere It is a day of rejoicing for the
Nation, giving it assurance that it will have no
repndiafor In the White House, and not ranch
longer have an Anarchist in the Bxecuttre
I'halr of the Empire State of the West.

For more that a quarter of i century the Catho?

But the monarch could never muster up BUnVlen!
courage to grasp the olive branch teodcred by
the Church, and to-day. when Premier Rndlnl
by every means in his power is enden*,oring to
repair the effects of the persistent boat 111 ty wlileli
his predecessors, especially Blgnor Crisp?, bare
manifested toward the Church, it is apparently
too late. For I?eo XIII. one of the moat demo
crnllc and progressive Pontiffs who bare ever
exercised spiritual sway over the Catholic world.
ssemi to hare determined at length to withdraw
Dm Papal inhibition against taking part In gen
oral eh'ctions. and to lei loose upon the polls
some two million or more new voters, whose
suffrages will not be in favor of the monarchy,
but against it
In one word the Popa, having found no disposi?
tion ?m the part of the present Italian dynasty
to come to an understanding either with regard
to the temporalities of the Papacy, or opon any
other subject, has wisely decided to throw in bis
lot with the republic, SS heing the form of the
Uovernmeiit of the future. With that prescience
Which sometimes ((lines to men on the border of
the grave, he apparently foresees that the days
of the monarchical system not alone In Italy, but
!n all other parts of the world, aie drawing to a
close, nuil accordingly he Is manoeuvring the
sails of the Church so as to adapt themselves to
the wind of democracy. That is why he has Just
astounded the Catholic world by appointing as
Nuncio to Parla a prelate entirely devoid of
diplomatic experience, whose only recommend.i
tioti Is that he is an ardent ltepubliean; thai Is
why he professes such unbounded admiration
for America and American Institutions, nnd that
also is the reason why the Catholic electors, now
for the first time scut to the ?tolls, art openly
recommended by the Vatican to disassociate
themselves from the cause of the monarchy and
to prepare to accept another form of govern?
ment- thai is to say. a republic.
In acting thus Leo XIII is not prompted by
any feeling of animosity or revenge against the
Qnlrtnat, BUI solely and entirely by the Interests
of the Church. Tlivse Interests, in hi* opinion,
as in ihat of tin- majority of the Sacred Coll.-ge.
are likely to be mole surely safeguarded by an
alliance with the Republican element, daily g?*"

been so unpopular as now. the people at large
holding King Humbert responsible for the Abys?
sinian disasters and for the terrible economic
situation of ihe country. They identify him with
ibe abhorred Triple Alliance, which has been the

What will doubtless prove a futile attempt to
alter the measurement of time I? now being
