Hllli.U EVENING, NOVEMBER 23, 1900.
Wilson Awaits an Opportunity.
It seems that the heart of John 1..
Wilson has b«-. n fairly broken by the
ingratitude of his party and the spite
work of the faction in it which has
been so persistent in its efforts to pull
him down from the high pede-tal he
had -o unexpectedly attained. At a
meeting of lu- friends lately held in
Spokane, he formally announced his
retirement from the list of official as
pirants, and stated his intention of at
once relinquishing the position of a
leader of the party. The scene which
followed his leave-taking of party as
sociates is represented as having been
quite dramatic. Wilson wept. The
tloodgates of bis warm impetuous na
ture, responded to the emotion of the
few and faithful who had followed his
wavering fortunes over the tempestu
ous seas and ending in an ebb-tide
of that current which "taken at its
Hood" promi-ed so much for all.
The dispatch making this heart
rending announcement bears date of
the 11th instant, and gives the names
of those present at the scene of lamen
tation as W. 11. Luddcn, Register of
the Land Office; S. A. Wells, Receiver
of the Land Office; Jack Wilmot, pro
prietor of the Wilmot saloon ; Arthur
J. Shaw, Receiver of the First National
and Citizens' National Banks; Charles
Hopkins, District Manager of the In
land Telephone & Telegraph Com
pany ; Eugene B. Hyde, Superintend
ent of Forest Reserves; Millard T.
Hartson, ex-candidate for Superior
Judge; Captain Joe Moore, Secretary
of the Republican County Central
Committee; J. W. Merritt, ex-eandi
datc for the 3d district; Herman 1).
Crow, Senator-elect from the 4th dis
trict ; Wallace Mount, Supreme Judge
elect ; R. D. Speck, cx-Sheriff of Spo
kane county; Joseph Wilson, Collector
of Internal Revenue; Harry Hum
phreys, alloting agent for the Colville
Indians, all henchmen of the retiring
chieftain. It had been announced that
the meeting was to be held for inau
gurating new plans of conquest, in
stead of making a virtual surrender
and the donning of sack-cloth with
ashes on the head. The ex-Senator, it
is said, reviewed at some length the
work of the Republican party in this
State and referred to his own share in
the political battles. He said there
cent election had convinced him that
it was better for the party for him to
sacrifice liis political ambitions and
become an earnest worker in the ranks.
The only regret he had con> trning the
election was that some of his friends
had been defeated through their sup
posed allegiance to him, as he realized
that this presumed allegiance had
been the cause of their defeat. Here
the wigwam in which the meeting was
held fairly rocked with a release of the
pent-up emotion of his stricken fol
lowers. For several moments there
was nothing that broke the stillness
following the cadences of the melan
choly voice of the chief but weeping
and wailing and gnashing of teeth.
After this storm of feeling had some
what subsided, Mr. Wilson proceeded
with his valedictory. He repudiated
the accusations of any combination
between himself and ex-Governor Mc-
Graw, and said he had had no political
talks with that gentleman looking to
a future coalition of interests. He
mentioned the fact that he was the
owner of a newspaper which was pay
ing him a fair income, and that he
would consequently lose nothing finan
cially by retiring. He said he should
always be with the party in its work,
but would never again seek political
office in Washington. He said be
would use his private influence against
Levi Ankeny and others who had been
responsible for the failure of his party's
best efforts in the political battles of
the year.
Tbis exhibition of a knife in his
boot-leg, caused an iridescent smile to
break over despondent features. With
this bow of promise beaming in the
distant horizon, the meeting ad
journed, to await directions from the
" newspaper that was paying a fair in
come."
IN discussing the pros and cons of
reorganization, Democrats should re
member that the apportionment will
change conditions in this country
very materially. The solid South can
no longer win with the aid of New
York and Indiana. To gain an elec
tion nowadays the Democracy must
carry a fair percentage of Northern
or Western States, and will go down
to quadrennial defeat unless it can
adopt a platform on which it can
carry them.
MR. PLATT announces that the con
trol of the New York city police is to
be taken away from the city govern
ment and vested in the Governor of
the State. Thus, slowly, but surely,
the principle of home rule is being
destroyed in the United States as well
as in the " colonies."
IRRESPECTIVE of party, the Govern
ment clerks in Washington who went
borne to vote generally cast their bal
lots for McKinley. Bryan bad served
notice that he would try to destroy
the civil service law if he won and no
government clerk wanted that done.
REPUBLICAN estimates prove to
have been remarkably correct. This
is not surprising. They had money
enough to pay for the work of getting
the best information and to " grease
the wheels."
WHAT has become of that "chain"
formed by the W. C. T. U. women to
pray President McKinley out of of
fice?
A Futile Undertaking
Mrs. Ida Wells Barnett, a colored
woman of some notoriety, is out with
another protest against tlie lynching
custom. Tliis time she addresses Pres
ident McKinley and implores him to
use all means in his power to secure
I such national legislation during the
: next term of Congress as shall forever
restrain the evils of lynehiug as direct
ed against the evil doers of her own
race.
Mrs. Barnett is at the head of the
Auti-Lynching Bureau of Chicago.
' < inly a woman would undertake to
-oppress a gigantic evil in the way she
proposes. About every President of
modern political days lias, some time,
been appealed to by strong-minded
women to have the liquor and tobacco
! ration system abolished in the army
! and navv. For reasons clearlv niani
i
; fest, uo notice has ever been taken of
j such feminine appeals. Neither will
Congress undertake to abolish lynch
ing by any sort of statutory legisla
tion. Lynching the perpetrators of
unspeakable crimes, whether they are
negroes or white men, is a custom pe
culiar to the American border domain,
and it lias come to stay.
The recent action of the Chicago
Anti-Lynching Bureau is evidently in
stigated by the late honiblc assault
and murder of a little school girl, near
Denver, and the terrible tragedy which
was a natural resultant. The crime
and its terrible retribution have
aroused to fever heat the moral senti
ment of the people of Colorado. Up
to the present time that State had no
law for capital punishment, but late
mass meetings in Denver have taken
the matter up and a bill has been
drafted for the infliction of the death
penalty for murder. But all this will
not stop lynching, so long as crimes
like that at the little hamlet of Limon,
last week, are perpetrated by a black
fiend in human shape.
The Anti-Lynching Bureau and its
co-laborers may preach and pray till
doom's day and nothing will be accom
plished. Nothing is truer than that
the black race in the Southern States
and other infected districts is as much
a gigantic moral pervert as are the
man-eating savages of the Solomon
Islands. Indeed, it is becoming more
and more evident that Darwin's theory
of slow evolution is destined to be the
only substantial means of starving out
the hellish tendencies that still linger
in humanity.
A Beginning of Business Failures.
The failure of several of New York's
leading mercantile firms, had the elec
tion gone in favor of Bryan, would
have been pointed to as conclusive
proof that a want of confidence had
precipitated the fall, but coming on
the wave-crest of McKinley prosperity,
it shows the liollowness and deception
of the claim that partisan politics has
anything to do with a natural course
of events. The most that can be done
by mortal man is to make the best of
God-given opportunities; the best we
can hope for as a nation is to obey His
unerring laws, and hope for the se
quence that follows result from a given
cause. If the unbounded prosperity
that is claimed has prevailed and still
prevails, it seems strange that a busi
ness involving six million of dollars
should not recoups upon positive as
surance of a continuance of existing
favorable conditions.
The failure of William L. Strong &
Co., it is predicted, but foreshadows
the fate of many other business firms
which have made a pretense of success
while on the down-grade that leads to
ruin. The changed conditions result
ing from the absorption of industry by
capital, has led to the embarrassment
of all trades affected by it, and it will
be found, in the course of time, that-it
is not the poor man alone who will
suffer.
THE chances are that the colonial
question will not be entirely settled
by the Supreme Court for some time
to come. It certainly will not be by
the decisions in the cases now set for
argument in that body. Both of
these arose in territory concerning
which Congress hud not legislated.
Other cases arising after it lias legis
lated for them will have to be decided
before the whole law in the matter
will be laid down.
ONE inevitable result of the Repub
lican triumph in the House of Repre
sentatives will be the cutting down of
southern representation on ac
count of the disfranchisement of the
illiterate negro vote. If the Demo
crats had carried the House, this
might have been prevented by a
filibuster at the coming session but
nothing of the kind will be possible
for as long a period as the next three
years.
WHEN a Republican tells you what
a splendid advance American manu
facturers have made in gaining con
trol of foreign markets, just ask bim
why it is necessary to maintain an
exorbitant tariff" on the importation of
these very articles. And when he
can't answer this, tell him that it is in
order to enable the trusts to sell their
goods higher in the United States
than they do abroad.
THE election is over and the armor
plate contracts have been let, giving
the trusts practically all they asked.
Evidently the only bar to the govern
ment's paying prices tbat Secretary
Long himself denounced as extortion
ate, was the fear as to how the voters
might look on it.
BEFORE the election, the Re
publicans declared tbat imperialism
and expansion were not at issue at all.
Now they declare that the election was
an enthusiastic approval of both of
them. The leaders have dropped the
mask is all there is to note in the dif
ference.
Thanksgiving Bulletin for Galveston
In connection with the reference to
the Union Thanksgiving service,
which appears in another column,
it may he well to note the real
need that still exists in the unfortu
nate city of Galveston. Many seem
to think that all that is necessary has
been already done; hut this is a great
mistake, as will be seen from the fol
lowing extract from a recent letter of
Miss Clara Barton, President of the
National Red Cross:
There is not to-day a needfully hungry
person in Galveston; none needing
clothing that can he reached; not an
orphan child uneared for that we know
of; but there are eight thousand home
less people. Try to think what that
word implies to the home-loving Anglo-
Saxon. Three-fourths of these are with
out the vestige of a shelter, only as hud
dled in with friend or stranger; not an
article that ever was in the home is left;
not one familiar object to their eyes;
not a single earthly possession, and
often even all that is forgotten in the un
speakable loss of those who went out
with the home.
Where shall these wretched people go?
What shall become of them? Many
owned their homes; hut for miles and
miles along the coast even the ground
is gone, and the restless tide ebbs and
flows over what was all to them. When
and how shall they find another home,
even small and temporary —some place,
he it ever so humble, that is once again
their own —some place where they can
he safe for themselves and safe for their
neighbors: for thin ntatc of tilings can
not long exist with safety to the city it
self.
It is this, ray good friend and co
worker, that draws the anxious look
over the brows of these Galveston men.
it is this that perplexes their committee.
Johnstown bad its three thousand
homes replaced; Port Royal had its
four thousand little rude huts and homes
rebuilt. Khali Galveston alone remain
unsheltered? Is she not a part of the
land of the free and the home of the
brave?
The American people have absolute
and well-founded confidence in Miss
Barton, and are sure that all money
committed to the "Red Cross Texas
Relief Fund" will be wisely used.
The rent of the opera bouse lias
been donated by Mr. Murphy, who
asks only the expenses of opening,
heating and cleaning the building.
This amount the ministers have per
sonally assumed, so that every cent
contributed at the service will go di
rectly to the needy ones for whom it
is given.
Too Bad!
The STANDARD sympathizes with
Oly in his humiliation consequent
upon being unable to publish the offi
cial vote of Thurston county until
more than a fortnight after election.
But this hardly justifies him in using
a cat's-paw (E. G. Kreider) to find
fault with the manner of stating the
pluralities for the several successful
candidates by this paper, which gave
the complete result last week. Any
intelligent method of stating the ma
jorities was usual and proper, espe
cially when the totals were given by
which they could be verified. The
plan adopted where two candidates
were elected was to subtract the vote
of the two highest defeated candidates
from that of the two winning candi
dates, respectively, a proceeding that
was just as regular and sensible
as subtracting both the defeated candi
dates' vote from the highest vote on
the winning ticket.
Chairman Kreider should keep
away from monkeys if he don't want
to get his fingers burned.
THE scribes having turned on the
executive tap to discover why Rogers
was elected, are now attempting, by
the same means, to ascertain why
Bryan was defeated. All things are
easy to this paragon of wisdom and
he unhesitatingly gives the reasons,
which summed up is equivalent to
saying that Bryan did not have the
common sense that he (Rogers) pos
sesses, or he might have been elected.
ONLY one of the "civilized" nations
exceeds the United States in popula
tion—Russia. Russia proper has 10,-
000,000 more inhabitants than our late
enumeration. Great Britain has one
half as many and so has France, and
the German Empire lets than two
thirds our population.
GENERAL Mac Arthur says that the
Filipinos stick together on account of
"ethnological homogeneity" which
leads them to prefer " consanguineous
leadership." Gosh! that beats the
vulgar assertion that" blood is thicker
than water" all hollow.
ONE consolation is that, except in
case of Mr. McKinley's death while in
office, Roosevelt will never get a chance
to be President. His wild campaign
will prevent the Republicans from
ever nominating him for that high
office.
MODESTY forbids Mr. Roosevelt to
say what he thinks of the proposition
of nominating Senator Hanna for Presi
dent in 1904. Anyhow, no man ought
to bo elected to a third term as Presi
dent, and that bars Hanna.
MUCH is expected from the Irriga
tion Congress, which meets in Chi
cago next week. The United States
■till owns about a million acres of
arid land, three-fourths of which is
capable of cultivation if irrigated.
Now we shall see what Aguinaldo
will do. The Republicans have pro
mised that he will give up the fight
when he knows that McKinley has
won. But the proof of the pudding
is in the eating.
IMPERIALISM is having a hard time
annexing its dependencies. The
Transvaal war was still on at last ac
counts, and the Filipinos are quite
lively for a conquered people.
IF the Democratic party is reorgan
ized, it should be by its friends and
not by the traitors who bolted its
nominations and brought it to disas
ter.
SIR Arthur Sullivan, the musical
composer is dead.
Inevitable Happenings.
All seasons bring their peculiar
fruits and the coasting season is no
exception to the general rule. Coast
ing and skating are brimming full of
fun aod frolic as they have been since
time out of date, and these folk-lore
sports should never be demerited by
casualties of any kind. This seems,
however, to be impossible according to
the common course of human events.
Almost simultaneously with the
coming of the snow there also comes
the reports of broken limbs and loss of
life. A little boy, thirteen years of
age was killed, last Thursday, while
engaged with his playmates in the
seeming harmless pastime of coasting
down a steep declivity in Seattle, and
two women were seriously injured in
Tacoma from a similar cause. Olym
pia has had its full share of gruesome
results from this winter sport, and it
remains to bo seen what the harvest
will be this year.
Bicycle riders are restrained by strict
municipal regulations and so it should
be with coasters during the cold sea
son. Every year there comes the com
plaint from pedestrians that they are
endangered by sleds wliieh come whiz
zing down the sidewalk wherever the
grade offers temptation to coasting,
and now this well grounded complaint
is again heard. The sidewalk coasting
evil is not confined to children of ten
der years, but "big boys and girls" are
the ones most complained of by people
who pay taxes for the privilege of
walking along safe thoroughfares at
night.
If coasters injure themselves they
have, of course, only themselves to
blame for their hardihood and care
lessness; but when a long coasting
sled, loaded with half a dozen adults,
comes at breakneck speed down one
of our frequented sidewalks, tearing
pickets off the fences, and endanger
ing the lives of women nml children,
the matter becomes serious enough to
be promptly corrected by legal re
straint.
Tiiat no coasting be allowed on any
street or sidewalk within the city
limits, might appear to be a rather
sweeping regulation, hut it would
have the advantage of being the be
ginning and end of the law and no
wilful violator could misconstrue it.
If these suggestions are not duly
acted upon by our city authorities we
may have to chronicle another heart
rending calamity.
Destructive Storms in the East.
Terrible storms have been raging in
several Stat.* the past week, accom
panied generally by a heavy fall of
snow. In Tennessee wires are down,
and the extent of disaster come in
slowly by belated trains, over routes
that have not been blocked by snow
and deep wAter. It is reported that
forty persons were killed by the tor
undo at Columbia, Tenn., most of
whom were negroes. La Grange is
another place where the lots of prop
erry and life is large. Thirty stores,
churches and dwellings were demol
ished. Besides the killed, quite a
number were seriously wounded.
The storm seems to have started
near Tunica, Miss., where hundreds of
farm houses were destroyed, and a
score of lives were lost. It was here
and in the middle and western parts
of Tennessee that the storm attained
its greatest severity, and all along its
pathway grave casualties are reported.
Some idea of the force of the tornado
may be formed from the fact that a
freight train on the Nashville, Florence
and Sheffield Railway, was lifted from
the track by it.
The cotton crop is seriously dam
aged, but the extent of injury to all
classes of property can only be con
jectured till communication is re
stored.
The north has by no means been
exempt from storm disaster. In the
Eastern and Middle States severe cold
has been experienced, accompanied
generally by a heavy fall of snow. In
the West, Pike's Peak seems to have
been the storm center, and delayed
trains and destruction of property
have been reported wherever means
of communication were open. At
Colorado Springs the wind attained a
velocity of 80 miles an hour and the
storm raged for sixteen hours.
A WOMAN made an attempt to chop
the head off of Emperor William, of
Germany, at Breslan, last Friday. As
he was riding in an open carriage,
near the Cuirassier barracks, a woman
hurled a hatchet or hand-chopper at
him, but the rapid movement' of the
vehicle rendered her aim uncertain
and she missed her target. She was
immediately arrested, and it required
considerable effort of the police to re
lease her from the infuriated mob who
witnessed the outrage.
SOME of our people are already ex
cusing their vote for Governor by use
of the homely old saw, which attrib
utes mistakes to one's " foresight" not
being equal to his " hind-sight." It
seems to us that some people have
been unable to use either sight, by a
dum sight, and it would have been a
darned sight better if they had never
attempted to take aim with their ob
liquity of vision.
OLY lias supplemented patent edi
torials with quotations from State pa
pers justifying the Republican treach
ery which resulted in landing freak Ro
gers again in the executive chair. It
is quite evident that the hide itches
when there is so much scratching.

THE COMING FIGHT.
ALL WILL NOT BE PEACEFUL SAIL
ING FORTHE REPUBLICANS.
The Armor Trust Gets Its Pay for Political Ser
vices—A Vest that Needs No Pulling—The
War Department Punishes Harrison, the Ex-
President. for " Apathy" in the Late Cam
paign HcKinley's Promise to Retain Present
Cabinet Oflieers Regarded Simply as a Per
functory Duty.
(From our regular correspondent)
WASHINGTON, Nov. lfi, l; MX).
If radical Republicans can have
their way, the coming session of Con
gress will see a political light not
equaled in intensity and bitterness
since the Republicans tried to pass
the notorious Force bill. The object
now is the same. It was then to cur
tail the political power of the South.
The presen' scheme of the radicals is
to have the reapportionment hill under
the new census provide for a reduc
tion of the repn sentation in Congress
and of the electoral votes of nearly
every one of the Southern Slates.
Needless to say that the Democrats in
the House and Senate will to a man
fight such a bill to the last ditch with
every legislative weapou at their com
mand, and those weapons can be
made effective enough in the Senate,
if not in the House, to block all busi
ness for the entire session if it be
comes necessary to prevent action on
the hill. Mr. MeKinley does not at
present favor this scheme, hut that
gives no assurance that he will not fa
vor it later. He is a follower, not a
leader, of his party, and he is likely to
repeat his l'orlo Rican somersault, if
the radicals can control the Republi
can caucuses of the House and Sen
ate. Senator Thurston, of Nebraska,
seems to be hankering after the lead
ership of the radicals in the Senate.
The Carnegie armor trust gets a
contract aggregating $ 17,000,000, and
the Midvale Steel Co., which underbid
the trust, in the first place, gets left.
That is tlib sum and substance of Sec- 1
retary Long's dickering with the steel
trust for a price on armor for our new
warships.
A statement was this week officially
given out denying that this govern
ment was in any way hampering the
negotiations with China, as charged
by American correspondents of Lon
don papers, and asserting that Minis
ter Conger and Mr. Rockhill have au
thority to act in their discretion upon
all matters of detail connected with
tbe negotiations.
Senator Vest, of Missouri, returned
to Washington this week in better
physical condition than be has been
for five or six years, and his talk indi
cates his intention to take his old
time active part in the business of the
Senate at the coming session of Con
gress. Senator Ve6t has opinions on
all things political and does not hesi
tate to express them. He said of the
proposition to reorganize the Demo
cratic party: "It is nonsense to talk
reorganization of the party at this
time. All that the Democrats can do
is to await developments in the future
and renew our allegiance to the prin
ciples of the party as announced by
Jefferson." Speaking of Mr. McKin
ley's re-election, Senator Vest said:
" There is no cause for discouragment
to Democrats in the result of the elec
tion. History has simply repepted it
self. No political party m this coun
try has ever been able to defeat an ad
ministration which was carrying on a
foreign war. The Federal party was
destroyed because of its opposition to
the war of 1812. Thousands of patri
otic citizens, who were really opposed
to the foreign policy of Mr. MeKinley,
voted for him because they thought
that we should first end the war in
the Philippines and then settle other
questions connected with the archi
pelago. And nothing was more freely
beard in the campaign from conserva
tive men than the argument that it
would not do to discredit our govern
ment by withdrawing the troops from
the Philippines while armed opposi
tion to the government existed there.
I believe this feeling did more for
President MeKinley than any other
one factor in the election."
It is said that the order for Russell
B. Harrison's honorable discharge
from the volunteer service—he has
been a Lieut. Colonel of Volunteers—
which was this week issued by the
War Department, was instigated by
feeling against his father, ex-President
Harrison, for not having been more
active in|his support of Mr. MeKinley
in the campaign. The reason given
was that his services were no longer
required, but tbe fact that other vol
unteer officers are being sent to the
Philippines on every transport pre
vents its acceptance by those who
think his discharge a whack at Ills
father.
Political parties are like individuals,
the more they get the more they want.
Boss Hanna has ordered thai Senator
Blackburn's right to his seat shall be
contested. This may or may not fol
low, as Boss Hanna lias found out
long ago that there are a number of
Republican Senators who will not be
bossed by him. Senator Blackburn's
term will not begin until March 4,
next. It is quite safe to say that lie
will get the seat he was elected to till,
notwithstanding the big Republican
majority in the Senate.
Mr. McKinley's request made to the
Cabinet this week, that each of them
retain their portfolios under the new
administration, which has been widely
exploited as something extraordinary,
wai in reality but a bit of buncombe,
a sort of official certificate of charac
ter for each of the gentlemen who are
members of the Cabinet. It is not
probable that any President who was
ever re-elected failed to ask the mem
bers of his Cabinet to remain with
him, although there is no record of
any of them having chosen Mr. Mc-
Kinley's way of doing it—a speech at
a Cabinet meeting. Nothing is more
certain than that there will be
changes in the Cabinet when the next
administration begins. DEM.
