THE EVENING STAR.
WASHINGTON. THURSDAY ..... November 6, 1902. CROSBY S. NOYES .......... Editor. THE EVENING STAR has a regular aed.per manent Family Circulation much more than the combined circulation of the other Washington dailies. As a News and Ad vertising Medium it has ao competiter. Win order to avuid delays on account of personal absence, letters to THE STAR should not be addressed to any individual connected with the office, but simply to THE STAR. or to the Editorial or Business Departments,.ao. cording to tenor or purpose. The South and the East. 'Th. result of Tuesday's elections has a bearing on thtt proposition of some of the democratie Ialers to return to and try again that oh combination which prior to 1Mi was employed by the party in Its na tional contests, and which twice, in 1884 and iN.. won the presidential prize. 'ntil Mr. Bryan's star arose, the south had been content for nearly thirty years to let h,r eastern allies have their way pretty much. b,:h in the matter of a national ticker and a national platform. She was willing to accept anything and anybody the east rcommended. She swallowed in that time several rather bitter doses. But she took her medicine bravely, and did the best she could. She realized that not even the strongest of her own sons were in line for presidential preferment. and so she let the east make the selections. But Mr. Bryan's nomination changed that program. The south turned from the east to the west, and made new alliances there. But they brought only defeat; and for some months past no little of the presidential specnlation has played around the proposi tion that the south turn to the east again. and renew relations which have produced the only national successes she has shared in since the close of the war. It was this propositi n, there can be little doubt. that made Mr. Hill so very active in the N, w York campaign. New York, N, w Jersey and Indiana were in the old c rnbin:atiot with the south, and he was de sirius of demonstrating his ability to con trol the sit.ation in th: most importan: of those thr,e states. ie almost succeeded in d,ing that: but on the same day Indiana and New Jersey gave republican majorities again, and West Virginia and Maryland, which were in the old classification of the solid south, gave fresh evidence of the fact that on national questions they can no longer be claimed by the democracy. So that, willing as the advocates of the old combination may he to employ it again, neither the east nor the south can now con tribute the votes to it which made it once so formidable. Stili, nothing is likelier than that a com bination somc what on those lines, and with New York as its leading factor, will be at tempted. The votes of the lower southern states, as was shown again on Tuesday. are d.mocratie under any and all circum stances, and they await the nominee of the n.xt democratic national convention on any sort of platform. The party has but to con siti-r. therefore. adding to these, votes , nough to insure success, and a candidate whose popularity makes him strong in the ch,a tatbl territory. Representative Mercer. One of the republ can losses in C.ngress affects the District in a manner to be sin cerely regrett.1l This is the defeat of Rep resentative Merer of Nebraska. who has during the past few sessions proved himself a true, friend of the capital. As chai: man of the committee on public buildings an.l grounds Le has had much to do w'th the r. cent material development of the city. Ti him belongs the credit of having secured th"" assent of the House to the grant of a sit. for the public library building given to the District by Mr. Carnegie. He was largely instrumental at the last session in s"curing an appropr:ation for the new mu nicipal building. for which he st, adf :stly strove, dispite the enormous pressure laid upon him by other members eager for pub lic building allotments for their own dia tricts. Mr. Mere(r understmnds as do f, w ither members the need of a comprehensive building program for the government at Washington. and his pol cy, if foll >wed, would go far toward the equipment of the g >vernment with the accommoJations wh'ch It now sorely lacks. In other ways Mr. Mercer has shown an inttlligent interest in and a keen appreciation of the District reeds. anl his departure from Congres, it is to be hoped for only a single term, will b.e deplori'l by every advocate of the, di v.'lopment of the capital on a national ba-is. An el,'cthion day tragedy has escaped no tice. Senator George L.. Wellington of Maryland has been "trun" down. It has happ-nedl before, you say. True, butt one of the sad things of life is that a man never gets full.v used! to hitting the earthi with a thudl that loosens his teeth. However commonplace the thing may get to be to the onlooker. to the victim t.he surprise and shoek are as painful t'he tenth as t:he first time. Senator Wellington is doubtless rub bing arnlea on himself with as much earnesttness as if he had never been "trun" down before. The organization of the rubber goods trust is accompanied by the frank avowal that the purpose is to "eliminate unnecessary c'erks and other employes int the businessq d"partments.' The men who are eliminatied wl!l oif course' fauil to 30. the b)roeuty of the Sc h me. . he mnner in wh!ch the lioitiell sat!s t'eia". can extract hope and comfort out of any situat Ion is again b'ing exempliti.,I.

F'or such a pur pocc the t':'stittton directs that the House shall vote by states, each state having ..ne vote r g:ira t ss of the size of the d+!i ga tion. Tih, r..re much night depend upon the pii!!t!Ical cape xien of the various state dtlegatiions. it would be possib'e for the rt publienns to lose cor.trol of the House and still. batring unjust exclusicns by the .democrats. retain a control of a ma jority of the slate de:rgations. in view of the fact that the deme.cratic strength is drawn from a compatrative:y few states. Butt evide'ntly the republicans will have con trol not only of the Houte. but of a major * ity of the delegations as well. According to the latest figures. with the republicans holding 203i seats and the democrats 181, the former will control ?' state delegations and the democrats 14I, with one. Rhode Is land. a tie. The republcan states, as the delegations are now reported, will be Cali fornia. Connecticut, Idaho, JIlinois. Indiana, Iowa, Kansas. Maine, Maryland. Masa ehuasetta. Michigan, Minnesota. Montana, -Nebraska. New, Hampshire. New Jersey, New York, Noeth Dakota, Ohio, Oregca. Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Utah, Vcr mont, Washington, West Virginia;. Wiscon sin and Wyoming. These give the party a margin of twelve states over the democrats, which, however, would be wiped out by a change of six delegations and eonverted into a democratic majority of two on a presidential contest by the shifting of seven states. The loss of ten seats it s5e$ states as Idaho. Montana, North Dakata, Oregon. Utah, Wyoming and Californla would give the democrata these seven states ai.d a majority of the state delegations. Other states are similarly close in this re spect. The loss of two seats in New York would give that delegation to the demo crats, and two in Maryland would likewise put that state in the democratic list. So it will be seen that the margin is not so sub stantial as the first summary seems to show. With the electoral college composed of an even number, as will be the case two years hence, a tie is possible in that body, but the chances of its occurring are re garded as remote. I100 William J. Bryan. Mr. Bryan emerges from the engagement in rather a sad plight. The fact is he en tered the engagement in rather a sad plight. His welcome as a campaigner was confined to a very small area. East of the Missis sippi river the bare thought of him gave the democratic managers pain. Mr. Gor man would have had a cold fit if it had been proposed to invite him to Maryland. Mr. Hill would have stationed armed guards at the Jersey City ferries to keep him out of New York. In Indiana Mr. Taggart did his best to forget him. His name figured only in whispers in Illinois. Even in Ken tucky, where he had as a visitor given countenance to the outrages of Goebelism. the democrats fought shy of him. He did one stunt under Tom Johnson's circus tent, and the reply, partly to him and partly to Mr. Johnson, was a hundred thousand re publican majority in Ohio. He saw and his friends saw that his uses were in the west: that it would be best for him to limit his stumping to that section, and to a few states even there. After a prelim inary whirl or two, taken with the object of getting his true bearings, Mr. Bryan-set tIed down to the task of trying to rescue Nebraska from the clutches of the republi cans and to prevent Colorado from a return to old affiliations. He brought all of his eloquence to bear on the people of those states-people who had once responded so heartily to his appeals-and the result is against him. Nebraska has repeated the verdict of two years ago. and Colorado has elected a republican governor. Even Mr. Teller's fate is in doubt, and that means a tremendous change of feeling in the cen tennial commonwealth. Where shall Mr. Bryan turn now for con solation? Where are now the hopes he cherished? Have they gone forever? Not so. It is safe to say that Mr. Bryan, what ever his feelings for the moment may be, will pick his flint and try again. It will console him a little to reflect upon the fact that none of his rivals for leadership in 1901 fared any better at home. Mr. Olney did not carry Massachusetts, nor Mr. Hill New York, nor Mr. Cleveland New Jersey, nor Mr. Gorman Maryland, nor Mr. Patti son Pennsylvania, nor Mr. Johnson Ohio. A rattling fight for control of the next democratic national convention is coming on, and Mr. Bryan in some form will be in the thick of it. His next appearance will probably be as a delegate to that conven tion, equipped with his smile and a stirring oration. And then look out for a strong melodr:jmatic play to the galleries. Ohio. Tom Johnson's campaign was not only the most original of the year. but for freak ishness it ranks with the curiosities of any year. His first step was to put a sensa tional pulpiteer at the head of the state ticket. His next step was to make his can vass in showman fashion, omitting only the fresh, shelled, roasted and salted pea nuts, and the red lemonade. His third step was to openly denounce John R. McLean in the latter's old home, and before an au dience composed of men who had repeatedly followed Mr. McLean's banner, and with out whose co-operation Mr. Johnson could not hope, in the most favorable circum stances. to win at the polls. The result is an adverse majority of something like a hundred thousand. The wonder is that the figure did not run up to two hundred thou sand. It is announced from Mr. Johnson's headquarters that he will fight again on the same lines. The republicans should welcome that. It means another republican victory, and the saving of thousands of dol lars in the way of campaign expenses. For while Mr. Johnson holds out to spout, Ohio can never be in doubt. Governor Odell's plurality does not grow to the point where it is safe to with-hold thanks to the clements for his re-election. A rainy day would unquestionably have de terred many a farmer from driving to the polls. The loss of four republican voters in every precinct up-state would have wiped out his margin and elected Coler. This fact brings home once more to the people a realization of what a big state New York is, and also reminds the republican man agers of the uncomfortable thinness of the ice upon which they have just skated to victory. - The republicans were not scared on Tues day, not at all. Like the man describing his fight. "He had me down, with his knee in my stomach, and was punching me face. I was shuck up. but not scared. I knew in time he'd break his fist on me cheek." There is a recognized objection to intro ducing the strike into politics, but the Penn sylvania miners could not forego the oppor tunity to defeat a mine operator for Con gress. Ge-n. Jacob Coxey is no doubt impressed by the fact that several politicians who espoused his theories are not having much better luck with the.m than he had. It seems a Dity to call the matter up. but can anybody tell where the Mr. Poe Is who was so lirm in his intention to defeat Pearre in Maryland by means of colored votes? Tlhe inpf-rtinence of the Sultan of Bacolod evidently extends to not caring whether he gets any Massachusetts sympathy or notL Porto Rico has gone republican, but a ntumber of the natives may have some diffi culty in explaining precisely what that means. - The farmer is not only prospering finan cially, but he is m'anag!ng to have tire last vxord in the election returns. Aguinaido has long since ceased to feel any hope in connection with the outcome of an American ilection. Tom L. Johnson must occasionally feel that so ungrateful a public is not worthy of riding at reduced railway fares. The democraitic performance on Tuesday was what the dramatic critics call an '"ar tistic" triumph. Mr. Bill Devery's opinion of Mr. David B. Hill has not improved. The Local Coal Supply. Here it is the C th of November and the weather remains mild, lihile the coal stIp ply is still to be secured for the winter's use. This remarkable fortune may not be immediately appreciated, but when the sharp days cotme the people will perhaps look back over the calendars and realise what a blessing It is that the seabofi $as been balaey duringt day eqasltnamine. The-t.cal receips of est aw e ana e-t be less than the tramaWanaR zpg in the bucket, and there is no immediate prospect of a material increase in tlhe shipments. The Washington ua aseat. wil prob abiy grow steadity. but not at a rate to vw mit a general restoking of cellars for two or perhaps three months. This course will lead to much ideonvenience and anxiety. The driblets will preveuit actual suffering, but it will be decidedly unpleasant for the householders to be kept in fear lest there may at any time come a check in the local supply or a burst of extra severe weather, causing unusual demands upon the fuel pile. It is safe to assume that the wise citizen will never again be caught with an empty coal bin, unless he learns how to warm his house and meet the requirements of his cook without using anthracite. It is to be hoped that Governor Bliss of Michigan will not ascribe his diminished majority to any aspersions which the peo ple of his state may have cast upon his poor horsemanship, as suggested by his un fortunate experience with a charger during the recent G. A. R. encampment in this city. Voters may be touchy on matters of that kind. I I That democratic chairman in New York who declared that the farmers of the state are too ignorant to understand the issues of the campaign is presumably more con vinced than ever of the truth of his re mark, although probably persuaded of its lack of tact. Sir Thomas Lipton's readiness to share the glory of competing for the cup with his countrymen has not caused any wild rush. There is probably an impression that it anybody can Sir Thomas can. I 000 Those who like to see a sharp fight for the speakership are doubtless relieved to find, on looking over the lists. that no one of the prominent aspirants for the gavel has been elected to remain at home. .000 Now that the atmosphere has cleared, that customary annual transaction with the Thanksgiving turkey may be proceeded with in the proper spirit. es It is said that the Shah of Persia keeps $50,00,0W0 in ready money. This is one of the circumstances which tend to make the life of the Persian assessor unpleasant. Philadelphia is having an epidemic of burglary. and is protesting against being robbed by people who do not hold office. .I I Any enterprising circus man can doubt less now pick up. a fine bargain in canvas at Cleveland, Ohio. SHOOTING STARS. Cruelty. "I don't understand why you should keep sympathizing with the man you helped to defeat," said one politician. "I enjoy sympathizing with him. It gives me a -chance to talk about the matter and keeps him from forgetting his troubies." A Meat Trust Phenomenon. Mary sold her little lamb; And at the butcher shop She paid the cash that she received For just one tiny chop. "Some folks." said Uncle Eben, "is jes' like hens.

"Isn't it wonderful," said the man who wears an air of perpetual astonishment, "to think of the earth revolving on its axis every twenty-four hours?" "Oh, I don't know," answered the man who loves to chill an enthusiastic- nature. "It doesn't seem wonderful to me. But if she was to stop some morning that would be something to get good and surprised at." An Institution Repudiated. "Do you believe in ghosts?" "No, sub," answered Mr. 'Rastus Pink ley. "I doesn' b'lieve in 'em. Ef I could hab my way, I'd do away wif 'em entirely." A Little Hint From Nature.

People are beginning to recognize that it is almost as necessary that man be sur rounded by beautiful objects as that he have bread to eat. Once his daily bread assured, he feels the need of a little art to brighten his life. He wants to have It in his house, and In the city where he dwells. Strange as it may seem to mer cenary, utilitarian individuals, men take great delight in seeing their city rich, re nowned. beautiful and outshining its neigh bors by the splendor of its monuments. The Italian tyrants of the Renaissance period, knowing the human heart, obtained forgiveness for their tyranny by erecting palaces and churches, the beauty of which flattered the local pride.
