Elections will Ik* held this fall in the states of Iowa. Massachusetts. Minnesota. Mississippi, Ohio. Virginia. Wisconsin, for governors and other state officer?. and in Colorado, Maryland, Nebraska. New Jersey. New York and Pennsylvania for minor officers. The legislatures to be elected in Iow a. Minnesota. Mississippi and Virginia will choose U. S. Senators. In Iowa and Vinnenota Senators to fill out the unexpired terms of Messrs. Kirkwood and Wlndom, who resigned to accept positions in President (larfleld'a cabinet, will be elected. In Mississippi a successor to Senator l-?niar is to he chosen, and in V iririnia a pnecessor to Senator Johnston. In Colorado the election is ujM?n the question of locating the ptate capital: in Minnesota amendments prohibiting sjiecial legislation, providing for equal taxation, and fixing the pay of the legislators at *5 Jht day. not to exceed $4.V> for any regular session or ?200 for any social session, are to be voted on; Nebraska will pass upon a proposed woman's suffrage amendment, and W isconsin upon one providing for biennial instead of annual ciessions of the legislature. The only states in w hich the canvass excites much interest are ^ irginia. Ohio. Mississippi and New Y ork. In Virginia a combination of republicans and readjuston* opposes the retrular democracy. An exciting campaign is being waired, and the result is doubtful, though the chances are rather favorable to the democracy, as far as the state ticket is concerned. With regard to the legislature the readjusters have an advantage in the number of Senators whose terms continue through the next legislature. The last Senate stood: democratic debt payers, 14: readjusters, 17; republicans. 9. Of the hold-over senators the readjusters have a decided majority, giving them that much start in the race for control of the legislature. In many of the legislative districts of Virginia the republicans are running straightout candidates, and it is not improbable that they may hold the balance of power in the next legislature. The state debt question is the chief Ifsue in Virginia, and should the republicans elect members enough to hold the balance of power, there is no means of telling which side of this question they would take. The republicans are divided, some supporting Mahoneand others the democrats; and it is likely that straight-out republicans w ho may l?e elected to the legislature will unite with tlie debt-paying democrats, while readjuster or coalition republicans will go With the readjusters. In Ohio the death of President Garfield seems to have created an apathy in politics, which will, it is believed, considerably decrease the vote. The result is looked upon as doubtful, with the chances, of course, in favor of the republicans. Some of the leading republicans fear that the apathetic feeling referred to will decrease their votes in greater proportion than the democratic. In New York the election this year is not intrinsically -imi>ortant, but because of the influence it w ill have upon the campaign for governor next year both parties are anxious to win. The factional fights in both parties in New York put speculation as to the result of the coming election out of the question for the present. In Mississippi the republicans, greenbackers and independents have united upon a state ticket in opposition to that of the democrats. The indications point to a democratic victory, but a factional feeling, engendered by a bitter tight over the nomination for governor, has not been entirely allayed, and this invests the canvass with an element of doubt. It is due to Col. Rockwell who has just resigned his position as Commissioner of Public Buildings and grounds, to say that he made an excellent officer. He showed a w arm interest in the prosperity of the National Capital, and was always disposed to lend a helping hand in any measure for the public good. His ready cooperation w ith the District authorities in the effort to stop off water-waste, during the late drouth is a case in point: especially as contrasted with the indifference shown by some other government officials in the matter. A subscriber inquires if a president pro tempore of the Senate, chosen from among the members of that body, can have more than one vote; whether after having cast his vote upon the cal1 of his uame, he can again vote in case of a tie* The president pro trmj>ore of the Senate has but a single vote?that which belongs to him as a Senator. The Vice President of the United States. and ex-offUHo president of the Senate, can have no vote except where there is a tie. The people of the litth congressional district of Ohio, w hom the late President served so long and so faithfully in Congress, are very much dissatisfied at the selection of Cleveland as the place of burial for the dead statesman. The friend.-, neighbors and constituents of the late President insist that his remains should lie at Mentor, the pra>^e he loved so well, and not within the enclosed proj>erty of an association which may prescribe the most arbitrary rules of admission to see the grave. There is a movement on foot to jH'rsuade Mrs. (Jartield to consent to the removal of the remains either to Mentor or to some other site within the congressional district. "Tncle Kufus Hatch contributes, in another column, one of his jx.inted letters on finance and politics. He is well known as a philosopher, and latterly has become a very good prophet.
