For tho Halo of tho Majority. Our ri-tcemcd contemporary and neighbor, tho IWfrtinr, eirnrstly asks tho New York licpubllcaiis tlio question: "IsWiuhmM ErinTitobe unoceeded In the United Ftntes Hennte by a Republican or a Ueniocrall" If our Itepubllcan friend i woro as con cerned about known political fraud In tho Noi th as they pretend to bo about supposed political fraud In tho riouth, there could bo but ono answer to tho ITliiitmc'a question. Tlio successor of Mr. Lvabts would bo a Democrat. New York Is a Democratic State, but In Now York tho btalo ofllccia nro elect ed by a majority or a plurality of tho Legis lature as chosen by tho minority. Tho cities, which nro Democratic terrlloiy, hao been growing rapidly and stead ily. Tho rural Itepubllcan districts hae either been declining In population or havo mado inconsiderable gains. A reap portionment of tho Senate districts and As bembly district would greatly add to tho Democratic, representation in tho Legisla ture. It would in nil probability Insure tho election of a Democratic Legislature. There fore tho Republicans havo for years refuocd and will contlnuo to refuse to provido for puch an enumeration of tho inhabitants of tho State as Is ordered by tho Constitution, nnd for a reapportionment based upon suoh enumeration. Iho Democrats of Now York will notcn duro this gross Injustice much longer, If they can holp it, and this Is a very good year for electing a Democratic Legislature. 1 ho Republican party of Now York is wenk and divided. Its feet are evil, and will bo as long as liKXJiMix IIaiuusos Is President. It litis played a wi etched doublo gamo in re gard to exeipe legislation. Its Representa tives In Congress have already succeeded in alar mlng tho business interests of New York by exit rvagaut legislation nud by attempt ing tonioCiiln with business in the South. Altogether thoro is a try bilious outlook for tho Republicans. On the other hand, the New York Demo crats are In good condltl n, nnd thoy havo In Daviij RrsNErr Hill the most skilful nnd siicieiful of living Democratic le tilers. The New York Demoern y will mnko a reso lute and manly eff irt to elect n Domoeratio t-'untor In Congress next winter, and ro rhtabllsh tho rule of tho majority. Tlio Stato Committee. Tho annual and duly expected midsummer rumor in tho Held of municipal politics lias mndo Its appearame, and it Is to tho oflet that tho Democratic huti Committco will, at its meeting in Augiibt, ccpcl from mem b"rhip upon it tho representatives of ono faction of tho local Democratic party. No particular leison is given for such an act, but a variety of reasons exist why tho Stato Commit'eo will pursuo no bueh course, nnd thov are worth reciting. In tho first place, tho Democratlo St.ato Committco lin nothing to do with any local differ ences w lileh may exist among tho Dem ocrats of Now Yoi k city. Such powers as It possesses am delogatad by tho .State Con vention, w hlch creates it. And as Stato Con ventions nro not called to male, and are not empowered to make, rriumcii al nominations, or to lntTfero with them in any way after having been made, tho Stato Committee, tho agent and Instrument of tho Stato Convention, has no such power either. All that it lias to do with Is tho Stato ticket and tho SUto Legislature. In tho soeond place, oven apart from tho quest ions of jurisdiction, or party advantage, the Stato Committee, bus no power to expel any one, thueby di-franchlblng a distikt. StatoCommittecnumnrechoseuby tho votes of tho delegdleri In a Democratic Convention fiom each of tho Congrtos districts In tho State. They nro irremovable, J'nch com ru'tteemnn represents ono diitrict, his own. As that district could not choose a member for another dlstiict, neither can its member Tote to displace a member already chosen. No ono understanding the funct'ons or power of a State Committeeman or tho method of his election would claim thnt it bad. Rut, flrally, ar.d in tho third place, n still stronger rcai-on thin any of those named ovists why tho midsummer political rumor of 1390 Is an nb suidlty. Thli Ira year of Democratic union not of factional strife, 'iho keynoto Bounded by Governor Hrr.r, in Indlannpolis ot a united front against tho common en emy !u tho accepted watchword of Demo crats everywhere. Iho old battle for tho eotisiltutli nul rights and liberties of tho peo ple, menaced ancv by the piovlsionsof tho centiiililiig 1'. reo bill, finds all Democrats iiirieed nnd haimon'ous. 'I ho Issuo raised in Washington by the Republicans In favor of the measure fit r I kev nt thovery eswnco of American Democracy, and makes Inevltablo a content, upon this lino at tho approaching Congres-slonal oloitlon, which will tuin latgely upon tho result of tho appetl of the Democrats to tho voters of tho country. Tho X.itlouul Citine. Our esteemed contemporary, tho CbniCTer ciul (!u;ttte, puts a question which suggests a liioe til otitic tlon. It asl.s: Are the public loilu.- liiiereit lu live bill names t ' Iho Interest in tlio mere playing of tho game, its pitches, mid thwacks, and stops may bo less or not less than Just ear, but there has been a troiuciitluuii loss of public attention dlposablofor 1U benefit, uono tho less, 'Iho tioublois that th'j huirt of iho gieit pistlmo is for the moment, gone, cut out by the effort of n new association of r-kill and cap.tnl todrivo tlio old and uuuiessftil oignnidlliiii off tho professional field mid pick up all honors and profits loft behind, Solong ns such a tumultuous scrnmblo Is undecided, tho gioit piuo of tho ball Held it, lot tho national championship, but commercial niuuss Tlio chief In spiration of tho general public, tho lovo of a square ll,;hl for tho championship, iiuid up bythuilvMiry of tho leagues; tho local print) in such great centria of boutl merit as New York, Uostou, and Chicago is split to death by tlio added nntngo nlems of two hostile clubs In each city.

While tho bniilo rages therefor tho In terest It posspRsoa, fur tho publlo Is like that of a factional light eompaied with an unob eciirid parly lsui.

There are b veml thousand practical Jokert fl In ew Tork enough to nominate a tew hundred ( on I pre n men, AMerabl) men and Aldermen It would I take very little trouble for thom to make the nomltia- 1 tlon. much Ies4 trouble for each Individual than It wou d be forthemaiwbo wasuomlUiitad tocetoutof 1L J Kmployees might ihnw their regard for their era- 1 ployor by nominating him for run cress or for the floor- n walker, or tlielr favorite ra oonkeeper or clkAr dealer, 3 by getting up a certitUate ti.run hlin for the Board of Jj Aldermen. There Is noihfnir In the law to prevent J this, it In rather encouraged. Unless the man so no a J lnited declines the n nttiinttnn In due legal form tho I city will hae to print Iih ballots ana hand one toi3Q, H cjoo or 3(,mf votere. There are some men to whom a HI joke of this the would ettm excruciatingly tunny, la fl cose ho should decline the law ttys 'The officer to 1 whom such m tlflcntlon Is pi en shall forthwith inform, I b mill nr otherwise one or mor persons whose namei H are attached to the original certificate of nominatiea 9 that euch nomination has 1 eon declined. ' A A man who is out of town an 1 does not hear of hit M nomination cannot get out of It, unless he should aot W legally ten days beforo election. In or ler to deollno, n he must notify the otllcer with whom tho original cer ji tlflcaie of hu nomination was filed at least twelve dayi n tefore the election If he was nominated by a convea fl tion, or ten dajs If he wns nominated by so-called "in- fl dependent citizens " Tl is dec lnatton most bo signed fl and duly acknowledge!, otl"erwl?je the bnltotg would fl hae to be printed. Thus a man maybe forced to run fl if advantage is taken of his absence from tbo city or h his sickness. J Hnce tho remnants of tbe old Labor party h aro found J out how cheap it Is to run a ticket nnder the new law, j they have made Dp their mlndd that they will go Into) ' politics again. The dittlculty with their going Into poll- j tics Is thnt too many of them want to be nominated. This difficulty may be solved by nominating them ail, H each man for the otllce that he wishes. Thero must bo n at least 3X) men who do not want un office for every fl man who is actively after 11 This would enable all tbo fl many candidates to ha e their tickets printed freo. fl The Central Labor Union has already deotded to ft H Into politics and nominate a tloket. They havo ap- m I olnted a Conference Committee to lo ik after It. Thl H Conference Committee and the boolaliats aro trying to m agree, but the Socialists have withdrawn from tho Ceo flj tral Labor Union and do not wnnt to have any moro to ffl do with It. That means a hot. tails t county ticket. tl The Central Labor Union did not go Into tho Clerical fl Citizens movement, but itshecretary, James P. Archl- M bald is Vice-President of the Clerical Citizens. Mr. raj Archibald s friends expect that he will get tho nomltia- ifl tion for Comptroller from the lerlcal Citizens, and that fl the giving the nomination for the chief financial officer H of the olty ought to Bithfythe Central L&Dor Union.
