It will be a novel experience for the people of North Dakota to have a demo cratic governor, and it may cause re mark that, while South Dakota goes republican by 35,000, North Dakota goes democratic by 5,000 on the head of the ticket. The results, however, are not so very different when they are once analyzed. The South Dakota re publicans rebuked their machine in the convention the North Dakota repub licans did it at the polls. The South Dakota republicans had so satisfacto rily settled their quarrel and disposed of their factional fight in the conven tion that they were able to get to gether and produce a rousing maionty. There was a strong insurgent move ment in North Dakota, but the old time bosses were too skillful and adroit. They dictated nominations which were distasteful to the insur gents and were particularly inconsider ate of the opposition in the selection of a candidate for the supreme bench. The mistake seems to have been fatal. It intensified the spirit of revolt to such an extent that it has resulted not merely in the defeat of the objection able candidate for the supreme bench, but it has carried down the nominee for governor -with it. But for this inexcusable bit of arrogance in machine rule which undertook to foist upon the people of the state for the high and honorable office of supreme judge a candidate conspicuously unfitted for the place, the result would probably have been different and Governor Sarles would have succeeded himself. The men who frame up politics for JNorth Dakota in St. Paul hotels have met an experience tbis time which may be exceedingly dangerous to their po litical future. Nobody believes there are enough democrats in North Dakota to elect a governor. This thing has been brought about only by a revolt within the republican party which ought not to have been necessary in order to teach the party bosses the lesson which they must learn from this result if they are to have a part in the political future of the state. Well, anyhow, people who bet on elec tions ought to lose* Harriman's Latest Grab. The success of E. H. Harriman's plans for getting control of the Illinois Central, while owning but one-fifth of the stock, is only another illustration of the fact that the stockholders of railroads under the American system do not really own them. The man who invests in railroad stock does not look upon himself as having any share in the ownership or control of the prop erty. It is for him an investment yielding dividends regularly, or fre quently a mere speculation in which he waits for a turn in the market. The control of a great system is one thing, the legal ownership quite an other. The Illinois Central, under the presi dency of Stuyvesant Fish, has kept up the fiction of identity of ownership and control longer than most of the great systems. Stockholders have always been invited to attend the annual meetings and have been supplied with passes for the purpose. Much of the stock is in small holdings that have j been kept for long periods. Mr. Fish had the confidence and the proxies of these stockholders. He still has them. And yet the omnipotent Hamman has been able to force eight of the thir teen directors to do his bidding and oust. Mr. Fish from the presidency. This he has accomplished by the devi ous methods of "high finance," and the result is that the Illinois Central becomes an integral part of his plans for building up a system that is to reach from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from the Great Lakes to the gulf. Not only has Mr. Harriman achieved this great step in carrying out his proj ects, but at the same time he has fed fat the ancient grudge he bears against Stuyvesant Fish for the latter's con tumacy during the Equitable's insur ance troubles in New York. But Mr. Fish is a fighter and a re sourceful one. Apparently he has no notion of permitting the greatest of modem railroad grabbers to get off with his prey unscathed. A the di rectors' meeting yesterday he raised 4 %h *^5, V! certain questions bearing on the legal ity of the proceedings that may result in a resort to the courts and ak contro versy resembling that in the case of 'the Northern Securities. And there is itfe farther possibility that at the end of a year Mr. Fish may appear at the annual stockholders' meeting With a sufficiently large bunch of proxies to dispossess Harriman and his directors. Meanwhile, Mr. Harriman's guileless declaration that he had nothing to do with the matter, but that it was purely a controversy between Mr. Fish and the directors, will deceive no one. "Why so to southern California wltl a climate like this out of doors? County Option. The names of several prohibitionists appear among the successful candidates for the legislature in this state. These people are coming in, not thru the ex pectation, of course, that they can ef fect anything in the way of state-wide prohibition, but as advocates of local prohibition, or local option. It seems to have been the plan of the prohibitionists to pick out places where they found republican candidates who were not generally acceptable and who. refused to commit themselves to the advocacy of county option. In these cases they have been very act ive and have succeeding in elect ing three members. It is claimed by the temperance advocates that they have a maiority of the legislature in favor of county option. We have in this state now local op tion confined to townships and vil lages, but it is the purpose to insist upon making the county the basis of choice between license and no license. Under the township option plan the whole county except the county seat may be favor of no license, while the township in which the county seat is locatedthe most populous one in the county, usuallyis controlled by the license element. With the means of en forcing no license in the hands of county officers it is quite practicable to regulate the issue of license by county instead of township boundaries, and this seems to be the next move on the part of the temperance people of this state. With Hughes elected in New York there is hope for Chicago's pink feather duster, J. Ham Lewis. Cabinet Changes. By the time the mooted cabinet changes are brought about it will con sist of Elihu Boot, secretary of state George B. Cortelyou, secretary of the treasury William H. Taft, secretary of war James R. Garfield, secretary of the interior Victor L. Metcalf, secre tary of the navy George von L. Mey er, postmaster general Charles J. Bon aparte, attorney general James Wilson, secretary of agriculture Oscar S. Strauss, secretary of commerce and labor, Mr. Shaw will retire from the treas ury to be succeeded by Mr. Cortelyou, who comes from the postoffice depart ment Bonaparte is to be transferred from the navy to the law office "Met calf from the department of commerce to the navy. Garfield will succeed Mr. HitcTicock, who is announced to retire next March. Mr. Strauss comes in as a representative of New York com merce, and ought to bring some definite character to the work of that depart ment. Mr. Meyer, who is at present ambassador to Eussia, is immodestly rich, and the New York Times inti mates that, his presence is needed in Washington in order that society may flourish. The president has been liberal with cabinet changes, and yet he has among his advisers a man who has held a cabi net position for ten yearsMr. Wilson, the secretary of agriculture. With all due deference to President Eoosevelt, it must be said that the strongest part of the framework of his cabinet has been the men he inherited from President McKinley. Root, Hay, Knox, Hitchcock and Taft, who was practically picked out for the war of fice before McKinley was killed, have been the props on whom President Eoosevelt chiefly leaned. Mr, Roosevelt has introduced some good ma terial. He has brought in men like Bonaparte and Moody, who are strong and have the confidence of the country. He also gave the country an illustra tion of how far he could go amiss when he picked out Paul Morton for a cabi net place. The newly foreshadowed appointments are quite respectable in appearance, but none of the men name is in the same class with Root, Knox and Hitchcock in the estimation of the country. Count Boni's campaign for cash Is close, with some precincts holding back returns. Wall Street Not Satisfied. Aside from the defeated candidates and the politicians directly concerned there were no men more disappointed over the New York election than the bulls in the stock market, who had counted upon an overwhelming defeat for Hearst and a quick rise in securi ties immediately following. They found yesterday, instead, a market barely holding its own, with indica tions of upward tendency, but nothing decided, and the same speculative un certainty surrounding it as thru the ante-election period. The victory was not decisive enough. Considerations of a nature unfavorable to prices, as the probability of another advance in the Bank of England dis count rate and unfavorable money sup ply conditions on our side, would have been overlooked, once the election re turns brought assurances of the death of Hearst politically. Nothing con vincing was forthcoming. Mr. Hughes will be governor of New York, a fact upon which the financial center con gratulates itself, and which will prob ably mean increasing confidence and a rising market, but the great thing de sired, the final elimination of Hearst, has not, in the opinion of Wall street conservatives, been accomplished. Whatever the politicians may think about it the, street has not the confi dence that Hearst has been killed po litically', It sees him as a discredited aspirant, a "busted" leader, but the republican victory was' not so sweep ing as t6 bting assurance that Hearst will not again be heard from. Nevertheless, in the victory 'for Hughes and the putting aside of Hearst the most disturbing influence of the day has been dispelled, and the mar ket should now rise and fall with the more direct influences of the day, nearly all of which, commercially, are favorable? Chief American Horse, who has been feeling his oats among the refractory Utes, has assumed the bit and Is going to Washington. i Why Kansas City Excels. The Kansas City Star says the prop erty owners of Kansas City have pledged $120,000 to be used in build ing a grand viaduct in connection with the new union station. It does not appear what relation this viaduct sus tains to the union station, or what this expenditures implies in the way of civ ic improvement, but the subscription is worthy of note as an instance of many in the history of that town of a similar character. Kansas City overcomes her handicap of climate and general unattractiveness of location by the enterprise of her citizens. They have a habit of doing things down there even if they do cost a little money which has made Kansas City perhaps the most conspicuous example of co-operation and public spirit to be found anywhere in the country. If the people of that town had our natural ad vantages plus their public spirit Kan sas City would be a model among American cities. It may be that their very obstacles and disadvantages devel op this spirit of enterprise more than it would otherwise be brought out. Nevertheless the' employment of it pro duces remarkable results there and would do the same thing here. Andover theological seminary is to celebrate its centennial in 1907. Discus sion of this event has made public the remarkable fact that Andover now ha but eleven students, all told, tho the seminary has an endowment of $1,000,- 000. Today the professors outnumber its students. In the century just closing, however, 2,168 students have been grad uated, a majority of them entering the Congregational ministry. Last year only six gained a degree. During the last six years sixteen students have been the highest enrollment for any one year. The ministry is becoming less attractive to young men in these times when val ues are measured by money standards. Mr. Hartje, the Pittsburg millionaire, has been asked to resign from the -rich meal's clubs There are some things that even Pittsburg millionaires cannot stand for. Governor Vardaman, who hopes to get into the senate on the issue of abolish ing the fifteenth amendment to the con stitution, has agreed to let us keep the rest of it. It is not so long, ago that Indiana and, Connecticut were biassed among the doubtful northern states Now they are about as doubtful as Texas and Ver mont. Cincinnati was not so ungallant as to turn down Mr and Mrs. Nicholas Long worth They made a great race and are. re-elected to congress. Thrifty Japanese have discovered the gold mines in patent medicines, and are working the orient with various brands of Nippon curealls. London doctors are recommending the smile cure for human ills. Still its effi cacy depends somewhat on the re turns. Senator Beveridge's brave and manly campaign against the billionaire has made a deep impression upon the coun try. The far eastern exchanges are comingr in with Injunctions to "vote early." Somebody must have done it David Bennett Hill got his usual bit out of the New York campaign, a re tainer.

Washington, Nov. 8.Secretary E. A. Hitchcock will retire from the cabinet on March 4 next and James R. Gar field of Ohio, at present commissioner of corporations, will succeed him. Her bert Knox Smith, now assistant com missioner of corporations, will be ap pointed to Mr. Garfield's place. The changes and that of the retire ment of Commissioner Richards of the general land office on March 4 are an nounced in the following statement from the White House. The secretary of the interior, Mr. Hitchcock, has informed the president that he would be unable to stav after March 4. Mr. Hitchcock has for some time felt that the very exhausting work he has been engaged in for over eight years in the interior department was wearing on him so as to make it impos sible for him much longer to remain. At the president's earnest request, he consented to accept a reappomtmpnt on March 4, 1905, bu^ he then stated that he could not sav how long he could stay, and he feels now he nuist insist on being relieved after March 4. The presi dent urged him to accept the ambassa dorship to Prance, but Mr. Hitchcock feels that he is entitled to absolute rest and was obliged to refuse the offer. The president went carefully over with Mr. Hitchcock the choice of ,a successor who could be depended upon to carry on with absolute fidelity the present policies of the department and agreed with Mr. Hitchcock that the best man to carry on the exceedingly onerous, difficult and responsible work of the department, was James E. Gar field, a present commissioner of cor porations. Mr. Garfield has accordingly been notified that he will be appointed on March 4, when Mr. Hitchcock re tires.

This action was taken at a conference ai*. the White House attended by Samuel Gompers, president of the American Federation of Labor Secretary Morrison of the American Federation James O'Connor, president of the International Machin ists, and T. (X Spelling, attorney for the American Federation. Mr. Gompers requested the president to commit himself in his annual mes sage to congress to the anti-injunction bill, which will tie the hands of the courts if enacted into law and make it impossible to issue injunctions or restraining orders against strikers. There was a frank discussion of the question, but it is known that Presi dent Roosevelt is opposed to such- legis lation. Even if ^the president should recommend this legislation, it is doubt ful if it could be adopted by congress, for Speaker Cannon has declared that he will never permit such a bill to pass the house. The American Federation of Labor made a fight against Mr. Cannon on this issue and he won. There is a bit ter feeling in the house against the la bor organization, as it made campaigns against several members of the house and all of them were re-elected. A Remarkable Short Story. Charles Belmont Davis contributes the leading fiction feature to the Sun dav Magazine of next Sunday's Jour nal, and a truly good story it is. There are not' many great short stories in the broad field of the world's litera ture, and the oritics are accustomed to count on the fingers of one hand al the truly good stories that appear in American publications in the course of an entire year. Mr. Davis' short story, "Coccaro, the Clown," comes very near winning a finger in the count. S Not Discovered by Columbus. That Columbus was not, as popularlv supposed, the first to note the declina tion of the magnetic needle has recently been graphically demonstrated by the discovery of three sundials, dating from a time anterior to Columbus' first vhy age, and# bearing on the compasses ac companying them lines indicating the declination of the needle. One of these, found at Innsbruck, was con structed at Nuremberg in 1451. Not ,only has it an engraved line indicating the declination at the time of its con struction, but other lines showing the changes of direction undergone by the needle in subsequent years.

There were many poli ticians today who said that the poor showing made by Hearst in New York city would bring about his permanent retirement as a candidate for office. They insisted he would never be able to secure the support of Tammany again, as the leaders of that organiza tion could justly say that Hearst had been tried once and was repudiated by democratic voters. In Fight to the End. But against all this is the statement of Hearst himself that he is in the nght to the end. So long as he chooses to mrx politics, backed up by the* agencies of his newspapers and the un-' doubted hold he has on a large body of votere, it is difficult to see how he can be kept out. He proposes to continue the agitation of "corrupt trust" abuses and will appeal to the same class of voters that have followed him the past two years. It is learned that the next active step of Hearst will be to renew the fight for a recount of the ballots cast in the mayoralty campaign. These have been carefully preserved in the sealed boxes. May Ask Recount. The election 6t XL S. Jackson, Irde endence league candidate for the of* of attorney general, will facilitate the efforts of Mr. Hearst to secure a recount. It is expected that Jackson will promptly grant the request to in stitute quo warranto procedings, which request will be made within a day or so after the new administration is in augurated. Mr. Jackson openly de clared on the stump that Hearst was robbed of that election. Hearst as mayor of Greater New York, therefore, is not an impossibility Then he will doubtless make use of his friends in the governor's cabinet to further his political ambitions. They will be expected to aid him in the ven tilation of alleged scandals and abuses in the Hughes administration and with the ingenuity and industry of the va rious Hearst agencies turned in this direction it is expected Hearst will be able to keep himself in the limelight without much trouble. i on the finest train running, ew electric lighted sleepers, handsome ly furnished buffet library and dining cars, everything that can make the trip ideal.
