THE SILVER STATE.
Wednesday........... October W, I8M, A CHANGE OF TACTICS. Governor Foster, of Ohio, admits, in an interview with the Philadelphia Times, that two weeks before the elec tion in Indiana and Ohio the Repub licans were beaten. The people had become disgusted with the bloody shirt, and it failed to have any influence on voters. They knew that the “Solid South,” which, by the way, never was solid, was a mere bugaboo set up to frighten timid voters, and that the in terests of the country would be as safely protected by Hancock as any other person that could be elected to the Presidency. While hopelessly striving to influence the passions of the ' ^people by appealing to their prejudices, Pastern politicians advised them to try the tariff question and business scare. They acted upon the suggestion, and though these questions were a mere pretense and an electioneering fraud, they were for the time successful. Since then, the clap-trap about pay •rrg the rebel debt and riding rough shod over the Constitutional Amend ments, ha9 been dropped, except by the small-fry stumpers, or precinct statesmen, as they are sometimes termed, and the tariff question has eii to red largely into the canvass. Now, ’it is shown conclusively by Garfield’s votes in Congress, that he is practically in favor of free trade, and in a debate with Judge Kelley, of Pennsylvania, on 'thb tariff, in the House of Repre sentatives, said that “ against the ab ' • stract doctrine of free trade very little can be said.” The Congressional Record ’ shows that he voted for free trade in salt; to reduce the duty on pig iron, on rcilroad iron and on bar iron, on win dow glass and on all manufactures of wool and cotton. It is also shown that he is a honorary member of the Cobden %r "Pro© Trade Club, though his vote is tvvico recorded in Congress in favor of ' a heavy duty on tea, coffee and paper and printing material. How tliia record is going to affect him in the iron producing regions of Pennsylvania and the wool growing dis tricts of the whola country remains to ba seen, but it does not seem possible, that partianism can so blind tlie people that they cannot see that this tariff ♦fuostiou, so far as it pertains to parties in the present campaign, is as shallow as the pretense, that the South is to ‘ govern the country iu the event of Hancock’s election. Congress appointed a Committee to report on modifications of tlie existing tariff schedule, which all parties admit- ought- to be revised, and that Committee i3 to report to Con gress at its next sessiom It is not an issue of the campaign, as Republicans and Democrats,, without distinction of party, concede that modifications in the tariff are necessary, and that the tariff on very many articles is prohibitory, ' and tho Government desires no revenue *. whatever from then*. ^ Joseph L, Wright of Philadelphia, oao of the Pennsylvania Greenback leaders, and a delegate to the conven tion which nominated Weaver, has fol ! ' lowed the example of Hughes, another l. Greenback leader, and declared for Hancock, Ha says Hancock will get tho bulk of the Pennsylvania Green back votes, and fceu tliousand of the Greenback votes, of Indiana. He de nounces Weaver for selling out to the Republicans. At the last meeting of the Boston Methodist pastors it was conceded that, thair denomination was barely holding its own in that city. After a discus sion of' various measures proposed it was resolved to try prayer. The preachers soiuamly covenanted with one another that for three months they would devote halt an hour or more each dry. beginning at noon, to prayer for the Methodist churches «£ Boston and vicinity. It is easy to- stump Rhode Island. A. grand stand is erected in the middle uf tho State, and tha thing is done with * single speech. Parties of the op position go into Connecticut until the speaking is over. “-- . I’. T. Barnma, the Prince of Show man. and of Humbugs, is a candidate lor tno United States Senate from Con necticut. lLa says he will spend *10, *4? to £efc.tte place. EXPLODING THE SOLIDS. The absurdity of the cry of the Solid North agaiaat the Solid South is being made so apparent by the publication of the returns of the Presidential election of 1876, that the Republicans who started it for tho purpose of making the people believe that there are no Democrats North of Mason & Dixon’s line, have abandoned it. The figures iw compiled from the returns are as follows: Nor thern Staten. RepvbWn. Dcanoc't. California. 79,269 76,464 Connecticut..... 59,734 61,934 Illinois.278,232 258,601 Indiana,.. 208,01 b 213,526 Iowa. 171,326 112,121 Kansas. 78,322 37,902 Maine. 66,300 40,823 Massachusetts.150,063 108,777 Minnesota. 72,962 48,799 Michigan ..166,901 141,595 Nebraska. 31,886 17,554 Nevada..... 10,383 , 9,308 New'Hampshire.... 41,539 38,509 New Jersey.103,517 115,962 New York.489,207 521,949 Ohio.330,698, 823,182 Oregon. 15,206 14,149 Pennsylvania.384,122 366,158 Rhode Island. 15,787 10,712 Vermont. 44,092? 20,254 Wisconsin.130,067 123,926 “Solid” North.. .2,927,624, 2,671,205 Southern Stales.

The ligures show that the parties are very nearly equally divided in the North, and that there was a million more Democrats in the Northern States than in the South. The South has never yet been solid at a Presidential elec tion, if the Returning Boards counted the votes correctly four years ago, and the fact that the Republicans have sent 500 repeaters to Florida, indicates that they do not intend it shall be next Tuesday, notwithstanding- their cry of a Solid South. TELEGRAPHIC ITEMS. The New York Times says: The to tal registration of New York City this year is 216,929, against 167,837 lrust year. An analysis of the table shows that the rate of increase has been much greatw in. Rejmbli*an than in Demo cratic districts. In the Seventh, Ninth, Eleventh and Thirteenth Assembly Districts, all of which are Republican, the rate of increase over the registra tion of 1879 is 30, 33, 23, and 43 per centi If the total vote bears the same proportion to the registration as in 1876, there will be 202,600 votes polled next Tuesday. Adding to the vote cast f<jr President by each party in P$76, its due jjropor.tion of increase, as indicated by the above percentages, we have a Democratic total in round numbers of 130,600, and a Republican total of 72,(XX), giving a Democratic majority of 58,000. This-is v.hat the table shows, if it shows anything, but tho real in crease in Republican strength in this city does not appear on the registry lists. A Woodland (Va .) special says : Prank Allison last night found his wife and business partner occupying the lat ter’s room, when hg shot and instantly killed the man, and shot his wife through the breast and abdomen, in dieting probably fatal wonnds. The parties belong to . the best families of Virginia. '1 he body of Michael Hendricks, said to be a nephew of (Joveni.gr Hendricks, of Indiana, was found murdered tii’jee miles from Leadville. The murder ia supposed to have been committed by two Met ulloin brothers, young Hen dricks having been implicated ju the murder of their brother and acquitted. A most fiendish murder was perpe trated iu Los Angeles. Tho victim was a boy nine years old, who had been to the store on an errand, and on his re turn was met. by a man who told him that he would find a package of candy on a certain window ledge that had been placed there for him. The boy got the package and ate some of the candy, the mother taking the rest from him until he had eaten breakfast. The child had scarcely taken three mouthfuls of coffee before he complained of a burning sen sation in his stomach, and a few min utes after was taken with spasms. A physician was sent for, who pronounced the symptoms the same as tilose pro duced by strychnine. The usual reme dies were applied, but the boy lingered for an ftounand died ih great agony. Since the fusion of the Workingmen and Democrats on the local tickets and General Rosccrans, the jiolitical contest has become more active in Sau Fran cisco. The Republicans concede that they have a harder job on hand than before the fusion, but they profess to he confident that San Francisco will go their way by a good majority. The Republicans say their canvass of tire State gives Garfield from 3,00ft to 5,0C© plurality. The Democrats claim the State by 2,500 at least, and since the Chinese question, and' Garfield's stand upon it, have been brought prominently forward in the campaign, it is plain that the tide has set toward Duncoek. It is learned from a most reliable source that a Chinese invasion is threatened from Cuba to Louisiana. The Chinese In Cuba get $1 per day in paper money, which is wortli only forty cents on the dollar. With this they have to buy their provisions, rice, fish, etg., at exorbitant prines, and the result of their labors is expended, with nothing remaining. They are conse quently dissatisfied. A Chinese agent, Hing Loong, in New Orleans, is engaged in bringing his countrymen to this country, where Louisiana plauters will use them in cultivating cauu A reward of '>,000 is offered for tlie arrest of the writer of the alleged Cac field letter to Morey, but he can not lie found. This leads to a suspicion that the letter is not a forgery. President Hayes is going home by the Southern route, and is expected at Santa Fe, New Mexico, to-day. NEW TO-DAY.
