M.IJ >r I! "W. ii, State '1 I ■ usurer's opin
ion i- ab.en the same,an Ihe think - the
o - i t indicates a reversal of public
opinion throughout th. country. Au
ditor Crimes waves the sanguinary
garment wildly above his head. He
declares that the "loyal people of the
north heard the rebel yell of the South
ern brigadiers during the debate on
the repeal of the Federal election law,
and are not yet ready to turn over the
government to their keeping." It is
.piite evident that this gentleman is,
politically speaking, like the automa
t'>n wound up fur a special service to
Spanish royalty, and whatever lie says
of that nature can have little intlnence
with sensible people. E. 1). Cowan,
Secretary of the State Land Commis
sion thinks that the result has been
influenced largely by an impression
that the ('resident is disposed to carry
out the plank ii. the national platform
rather than the modified interpreta
tion of it made in his letter of accept
ance. Mr. Phillips, of the First .Na
tional hank, thinks that the result
will have a good effect on business in
terests. Col. Owings, of the Capital
National bank, in a classical manner,
declares that under a tariff for revenue
the results have been had, and the
Democracy is consequently over
thrown. This summary way of dis
posing of a matter that has had no be
ginning and is very far from having
an ending may suit the Colonel, but
not the people to whom it is addressed,
l'hil Skillman says it results from a
combination of two elements, tariff and
finance; distrust of the former and
hard times. I'inancial depression al
ways mitigates against the party in
power. John A. Rea becomes so hope
lessly lost amid the " smokeless smoke
stacks" he erects as a simile of finan
cial depression, that we can hardly
follow him to the end of his metaphor.
These and the " Democratic panic," in
his opinion, have brought about resus
citation of the apparently lifeless
corpse of his party, and he is filled
with glee thereat. Dr. Armstrong, in
a neat, terse sentence, as palatable as
one of his own sugar-coated pills, de
clares that he glories "in the triumph
of American manhood for a *lean ju
diciary in the election of Bartlett and
the defeat of Maynard in New York."
Mr. Welty, Receiver of the Land Office,
says it is the tariff. Mr. Mills, the
Register, was absent when the reporter
called, but left on his desk a portrait
of McKinley endorsed " Logieul Re
publican candidate for 1896."
Among the Democrats consulted
were C. J. Lord, of the Capital Na
tional Bank, who regarded the result
in New 5 ork as a sweeping victory for
President Cleveland, and a slap in the
face for Senator Hill. Mr. E. T.
oung thought the result indicated a
restoration of " confidence" to the Re
publican party, but there was no as
surance that it would be lasting. "It
is an off year and unusual conditions
have existed." F. G. Deming regarded
it as an off year result that always fol
lows a general election. It will have
little effect in the future, except in
bringing Gov. McKinley forward for
the Presidential nomination.
Among the Populists B. M. Price,
the editor of the Capital, arose at the
bidding of the scribe and declared that
the large vote in certain States that
have been changed from the Demo
cratic to the Republican columns, in
dicated that the people are going back
and forth, to the old political parties,
seeking relief from the burdens im
posed, which never comes. Time
alone can tell that these organizations
are camping on the same ground.
Under present conditions Gov. Mc-
Kinley must be regarded as the logical
candidate of the gold-bugs and manu
facturers' association in the next
presidential campaign. J. C. Kleber
said it was a laudslide owing to a too
heavy precipitation ot Clevelandism.
The fact of the whole matter ia that
the usual conditions which create
what is known as an " off-year" have
prevailed to a much larger extent
than usual the past year. The politi
cians who have been routed out of
warm places at the public crib have
not been slow to take advantage of
them, and place every responsibility
for suspension of industry or business
failure upon the administration.
When attention is called to the fact
that the depression begun before the
Republicans went out of power, the
stereotyped reply is " Oh, it is u want
of confidence in the Democratic pol
icy, that has produced these results."
If one has the temerity to state the
truth, that hard times began a year or
more before the people voted for Presi
dent in 1892, and that the overwhelm
ing majority cast for the Democratic
ticket was for a trial of some new aid
to prosperity, he is met with some joc
ular remark about dating back further
than the memory can conveniently
It is very natural for the plethoric
manufacturer to place the responsibil
ity of reduction of force, or suspension
of business, upon bis political op] on
ents who have never sanctioned his
grasping methods, and it is very con
venient to make party capital at the
same time in aid of those who have
built up a class of wealthy autocrats.
What does it matter to them if by a
few months' suspension, their friends
are returned to power, and anew lease

An Appalling Disaster.
The di-patches are burdened this
vv.. k by the details of another horror,
whereby 1.000 persons were hurled
into eternity. This disaster occurred
at Santander, Spain, Friday night,
and was the explosion of a ship-load
of dynamite, on the ship Yolo, while
lying at the dock. It. seems that the
-hip took lire, and a large crowd
gathered about unaware of the dan
g. rous nature of thw cargo. The (iov
cruor of the province directed the ef
forts of the tiremcn to subdue the
(lames, although he was aware of the
dangerous explosion so near at hand,
i When the lire reached the dynamite,
j there was an explosion which de
-1 stiovcd sixty houses, and damaged
many others, and the latest informa
tion places the number of human
; lives sacrificed at 1,000. The people
! of the city wore paralyzed by the dis
-1 aster, and no effort was made to ex
! tinguish the fire which resulted
' from the flaming brands that were
j thrown broadcast hv the mighty
power. Telegrams were sent to Val
! encia, Rurgus and Yalladolid for en
gines and men to fight the lire, hut it
was impossible to check the (lames
when they arrived, and lully one-half
the city is in ashes.
Santander is a city of 45,000 popu
lation, on the Ray of Biscay, 207 miles
north of Madrid, Spain. It has been
a busy and thriving place, possessing
manufacturers, founderies, tanneries,
breweries and fish-curing establish
ments. Its commercial relations with
South America and Cuba are import

Wrangle Over a "Dead Man's Shoes."
What has come over the people that
such scenes as are narrated in a Chi
cago dispatch of Saturday should lie
enacted? Dark indeed are the times
which produce men who will wrangle
for poss. sion of a little brief authority,
in the piesence of the emblems of
mourning over a chief who had so
lately been removed by the gory hand
of the assassin.
The dispatch reads: "Before the
cr 'pe-draper speaker's desk stood two
aldermen, political opponents, each
declaring himself chairman of the
body. The reading clerk leaped
'upon the back of one of the contest
ants and tried to eject liim. Another
clerk tore up the resolution because
it was not in line with that which his
party desired. Over the sombre draped
rails of the speaker's stand leaped
another alderman upon the back of
the clerk, and his colleagues flocked to
his aid. Upon him jumped the alder
man of the opposing faction, and
clutching at the throat of the man
who by force was trying to get before
the council that which should have
been legally received. Police officers
rushed into the enclosure to separate
the struggling aldermen, and in the
fight that ensued the crape hung
about the desk of the dead mayor was
rent, torn down, and trampled under
foot. Men who three days before spent
money and labor to honor Mayor Har
rison disgraced his memory by a
disreputable brawl over the right to
sit for twenty minutes in his chair.
The council chamber is guarded by
police officers and no one is allowed to
enter. Shortly after Chairman Mc-
Gillen refused to declare Swift elected
the Republican aldermen withdrew to
the ante-room and proceeded to swear
in Swift as mayor. The matter will
now rest until the regular meeting of
the council Monday night."
A special foice of police have lieen de
tailed to guard the White Honse
against an assault from a dan
gerous crank, who hails from Boise,
Idaho. It seems that the informa
tion came from the keeper of a res
taurant He declares that a
short time ago a miner came to his
place of business, who was out of em
ployment, and in the course of a heat
ed discussion upon the silver question,
declared that if the repeal bill passed
he would kill the man who be knew
should be held responsible for its pass
age. The man disappeared and the
restaurant keeper deemed it his duty
to proceed to Washington and give
warning. Immediately upon arrival
he started for the White House, and
found lurking about the promenade
the same individual who had threat
ened the President's life. He then
went to the police and told the story.
The information was considered of ;
sufficient importance to warrant
measures of safety.

Tuesday afternoon, immediately after
his return from the World's Fair. He
is enthusiastic over the big show, and
thinks our State made an excellent
display, except in that which she

cally refrains from censuring the

Kentucky is solidly Democratic not
withstanding the claim of Populistic
strength before election. The Demo

by increased majorities.
Maryland went Democratic on all

all five of the judges are from that
Colorado is almost entirely Repub

As full returns come in majorities \
continue to increase. Ohio is now up

sometimes servicable in saving life
when all else fails. May those who
hold the reins be admonished in time.
Some Benefits of the Fair.
A. 1). Charlton, Asst. (Jen. Passen
ger Agent of tho Northern Pacific
R. R. Co., at Portland, Oregon, re
turned Monday to that city, from a
trip to Chicago and the East. Speak
ing of the results of the Fair, he gives
this promising picture of an immediate
effect that will be felt by the north
west coast.
He says: " The Midway Plaisance
never presented a more lively appear
ance than docs the Northern Pacific
depot at St. Paul at present. It is
crowded from morning to night with
people who visited the World's Fair,
and after a careful scrutiny of the
products of the various States, decided
that the Northwest offers better in
ducements than any other section of
the country.
" The average number of people de
parting each day since Oct. 20, is 310.
Of these it is estimated that 45 per
cent, are persons who intend to settle
in the Northwest, and tiie remaining
05 per cent, are residents of the
coast returning from the fair. All,
or at least most of the prospective
settlers, purchased tickets for Oregon
and Washington, and will, without
doubt locate in one of these two
States. Had Oregon erected a State
building at the fair its products would
have received more attention, but as
it was, the magnificence of the ex
hibits which carried off prizes did not
receive the attention they warranted.
During the last week, the Washington
building was crowded from morning
until night with persons desiring to
see exhibits and get literature issued
by the State. However, all persons
intending to come west obtained
pamphlets descriptive of Oregon, and
saw our exhibit. This State will
reap ae much benefit as its northern
CHINEE."— " The Six Companies" and
their attorneys have been too much
for the U. S. Government backed up
by a decision that established the con
stitutionality of the Geary law beyond
question. Attorney General Olney,
last Saturday, gave orders to the U. S.
Marshals, having Chinamen in custody
ordered deported by the United States
courts, to discbarge them, unless
charged with something more than
the violation of the exclusion law. It
is said that a tacit understanding
exists between the Six Companies and
the U. S. Government that all China
men in the country will comply with
the requirement of registration within
six months embraced in the new law.
American outlaws do not receive such
considerate treatment.
anarchist at Barcelona, Spain, threw
two dynamite bottibs in a crowded
theater, during the performance of
" William Tell," one of which ex
ploded killing a score or more of men
and women, against whom he could
not possibly have had a shadow of
grievance. The other boom fell into
the lap of a woman and rolled thence 1
tlience harmlessly to the floor. '

Carlisle are Loth lirin in the belief that
the repeal of the purchasing clause of
the Sliernian silver law, now an ac
complished fact, w ill soon bring about
a state of affairs that will make the
much tsilked about issue of bonds un
neceasary, and neither of them
wishes to issue bonds until circum
stances shall make such an issue
absolutely necessary. Democrats in
Congress, or at least si majority
of them, would like to escape authoriz
ing sin issue of bonds, if it can pos
sibly be done. It will be much
easier for President Cleveland to speak
positively and definitely on the bond
■ piestion a month hence than it is
now, and it is probable that bis mes
sage to the regular session of Congress
will take a decided stand one way or
the other on the subject, and I ven
ture the prediction that the state of
business, public and private, for the
next month will decide which. If the
expected increase in business shall
result in largely increasing the reve
nues of the government, as Secretary
Carlisle believes it will, the adminis
tration can get through without bonds.
The movement for a change in the
j rules of the Senate is growing unite
! rapidly, and it is among the proba
bilities that a change will he made
early in the regular session. Several
I amendments to the rules have this
week been proposed by Senators Hill
; and Blackburn, and other Senators
speak of offering others. All of these
will be referred to the Committee on
Rules, which will, it is believed, in
: due time, report an amendment that
wiil accomplish the end aimed at—
: give the majority of the Senate the
authority to order a vote whenever
jit may think that the debate has
been sufficiently prolonged, an author
ity possessed by the House and by
nearly every legislative bodv in the
world. Unless the Republicans shall
oppose the change, it is expected that
it will be easily accomplished.
Representative Bailey, of Texas,
thinks Uncle Sam pays out lots of
I money without receiving anything
approaching an e<iuivalent in return
therefor. He has introduced two
! bills, each of which lie thinks will |
! stop a big leak of that kind. One of j
them provides ior the repeal of the j
law's providing for the payment of \
retired army any navy oflicers and j
that the pay of such officers hereto-1
fore retired shall cease when the bill I
becomes a law. The other repeals the j
laws providing for the payment of re- <
tired judges from the U. S. courts and
stops the pay of all those now on the !
retired list. Whether there is any
nrobability of either of these bills be
coming laws it is too early to say, but
Mr. Bailey is thoroughly in earnest
and will do his best to push them
Mr. J. S. Harrison, of Kansas City,
ex-1 resident Harrison's Democratic
brother, is in Washington seeking an
office. He wants to be Surveyor at
Kansas City.
While all of the Senators and Rep
resentatives are doubtless glad of the
opportunity to go home for a few days
before the beginning of the regular
session, there are quite a number of
prominent Demoerats who expressed
the opinion that it would have been
better to have let the extra session inn
right along until the time for begin
ning the regular session. The ma
jority, however, thought that no time
would be saved by remaining in ses
sion, and the majority rules, usually,
in the Democratic party.
One real reform was adopted by
Congress this week when it decided
that bills which pass either House or
Senate shall be printed instead of
being enrolled by band. It is be
lieved that this change will prevent
many and costly errors which have oc
curred during the closing hours of
every session of Congress, in the en
rollment of hills.
In reply to a question as to what
action the President had taken on the
report that emissaries ol several Euro
pean nations were secretly aiding the
Brazilian insurgents and that their
purpose was to overthrow the republic
and re-establish the monarchy, a
prominent official, not a member of
the cabinet, said; " I am not at liberty
to enter into details, but you can rest
assured that tins administration will
assert the Monroe doctrine and pro
tect the commercial interests of Amer
ican citizens in Brazil and elsewhere
at all hazards, and it will do it without
the bluster and jingoism which charac
terized President's Harrison's dealings
with Chili." AH of the facts concern
ing the Brazilian revolution in the
possession of the State department
were laid before the cabinet this week
and a unanimous agreement was
reached, the nature of which was not,
for obvious reasons, made public.
