VOL VII NO. 22
VICTORY FOR REPUBLICMNISM Last Tuesday the voice of the American people was heard through the ballot box, and in that voice it was distinctly heard that an over whelming, majority of the voters of the United States favored the elec tion of William McKinlev and Theodore Roosevelt as the next presi dent and vice president. That voice came almost unanimously from every state in the Union, and it spoke in language of such a certain sound that the political leadership of demagogues will no longer be fol lowed by the voters of this country. William Jennings Bryan has been beaten as no other presidential nominee was ever before beaten in the history of the United States, and his visionary vagaries, political dogmas and paramount issues will be no longer considered by the voters of the various states of this Union. He, as President Cleveland said some years ago, will fall into ''innocu ous desuetude," and from now on will only be heard from a- a political demagogue and as a has-been politician. Not only were MeKinley and Roosevelt elected last Tuesday, but with them the great Republican party has elected an overwhelming number of the members of the lower house of the Fifty-seventh congress. The upper house of congress is already overwhelmingly Republican, and now both of them have a Republican working majority. The next administration of President McKinley will not be handicapped by the bickerings of a stubborn Democratic minority, and it will be able to pass measures for the bene fit of the country, which will be done as soon as the Fifty-seventh con gress will have become an actuality. _^_ . ... . ; -..... _^_ Bryanism. which has been before the people for the past six years, though defeated in 1896, continued throughout the MeKinley admin istration, was even worse beaten in the election which has just passed than in 1890, when Mr. McKinley was elected president over Mr. Bryan. Even Mr. Bryan's own state, in which he has lived since he was » boy, and which state he has represented in congress, refused to give him the electoral vote, because it thought he was not in harmony with the American people. The imperialistic bugbear sprung by Mr. Bryan early in the campaign which has just closed, for no other pur pose than to get away from the If! to 1 free silver nightmare issue, proved to be a boomerang for him at the polls. The American people doubtless are opposed to imperialism in its true sense, but evidently they do not believe the holding of the Philippine islands by this govern ment, islands which they fairly and squarely won by war, is imperial ism, and their votes last Tuesday clearly demonstrated that fact. The following is the vote for president and- vice president iif^the 1 states of this Union: STATES FOB MKIXLEY. California, 9; Connecticut, (>; Delaware, 3; Illinois, 24; Indiana, 15; lowa, 13; Idaho, 3; Kansas, 10; Kentucky, 13; Maine, 0; Mary land, 8; Massachusetts, 15; Michigan, 14; Minnesota, 9; New Hamp shire, 4; Xew Jersey, 10; New York, 36; Nebraska (Bryan's state), 8; North Dakota, 3; Ohio. 83; Oregon, 4; Pennsylvania, 32; Rhode Isl and, 4; South Dakota, 3; Utah, 3; Vermont, 4; West Virginia, 6: Washington, 4; Wisconsin, 12; Wyoming, 3.

It will thus be seen that Mr. Bryan has been defeated even worse than was Horace Greeley 'when he ran against Gen. U. S. Grant. The Democrats have been given but a mere handful of the members of the lower house of congress, as. every state that has given Republi can majorities for MeKinley has likewise elected Republican repre sentatives to represent their state in congress, It has been authenti cally given out that the Republicans will have some fifty-one majority in the lower house; the Republican majority has also been increased in the senate. Washington has re-elected John R. Rogers a.? governor, who will lend his every effort, in so handling his official patronage as to build up George Turner's fences for a second term in the United States senate.

Our country through all its extent has been bless ed with abundant harvests. Labor and the great industries of the peo ple have prospered beyond all prece dent.

The lives of our official representa tive and many of our people in Chi na have been marvelously preserved.

The men quarreled over some trifling matter connected with the brewery, and an altercation followed between them. In the fight; Rager snatched up a i brick and threw it at his antagonist with terrific force. Maier was hit over the heart and fell instantly, dead, as though he had been pierced ;by a bullet. It i- very apparent from Rager's statement, which statement has been corroborated by others working in the. brewery, that he hit Maier in self-defense!

These speakers made on an average 4,500 speeches each night: 26,000 per week, and in all made 150,000 dur ing the campaign. The Republican national committee had S2O speak ers, and (!,0(»0 local speakers. They made on an average 7,000 speeches per night, and a grand total of 250, --000 during the entire campaign. Eighty million of pamphlets of cam paign speeches were printed and sent out, and 7,000,000 copies of Presi dent McKinley's letter of accept ance, printed in American, German. Norwegian.

Jay Gould, who leff her an income of $600,000 per year, is now a total bankrupt, and her effects are in the hands of a receiver appointed by the French courts, and that receiver is none other than her brother, George Gould. Since she married the Count she has spent $."5,000,000 in cash and contracted $5,000,000 in debtedness. The receiver, George Gould, has given it out that the en tire indebtedness will be paid by the Gould family, and in the future his sister will spend what is allotted to her by himself and the other mem bers of the family. According to statistics the women of Chicago are not making much of the opportunity to vote in that city. They were first permitted to vote in that city in- 1894, at which time a large number of them turned out to the polls and voted, but since that time there lias been a steady decline in the woman vote, as will be seen from the following tabulated vote cast by the women: 1894 '. 24,10!) 1896 :},ofiO 1898 1,13] 1900 -2.482 There seems to be no explanation why the woman vote has steadily fallen off in every state where they once get an opportunity to become legal voters, but such is the fact and an undeniable one.

A writer to an Eastern paper, who claims to be fully advised upon the subject about which he has written, declares that the campaign to elect a president in this country this year has cost $5,000,000. He further states that the cost in 1864 of elect ing a president was $500,000. In 1872, he says, it cost this country $500,000. Hi 1884 $1,500,000 was expended on the election of a presi dent.

PRICE FIVE CENTS PEN PICTURES By Susie Htvels Cmftmi It is a tiny white casket, which sets upon the white slab covering the center table; suspended from the ceiling is a curtain of white tulle, which falls in many folds about the table and its precious burden and reaches the floor in piling waves — so soft and fluffy— harmoniously ming ling with the great white hair rug ;on which the table stands. Ob the [outside of the curtain, peeping up here and there from the depths of the rug, are flowers, bright and beau tiful; here a bunch of sweet forget jine-nots, there a cluster of lovely daisies.— representatives from most of the flowering families, but chiefly j those not celebrated for the great- I ness of their size or the brightness of their faces, but those known and loved for the Modesty of their ap pearance and the sweet perfume which they so freely proffer. Delicate indeed is the silk drapery on the inside of the casket, so skill fully and beautifully woven that it partakes of the misty, webby illu sion, yet quite in keeping with the little body which it envelopes—this wee bit of human clay, with its tiny hands folded upon its breast, its lit tle face so sweet and passive; baby who came to this home to brighten it for a few days only, ere a sum mons called it Heavenward. It does not occupy much space; the casket is very short. The little hands, the delicate features, the contour of the entire body seem almost too fairy like to have ever been classed among the mortal; and yet, ere it lay there in all its infantile purity, it was the embodiment of the highest parental anticipations of two fond hearts who had planned and hoped and feared as only two such hearts can plan and hope and fear when looking forward to the arrival of the first baby in their home. "Only a baby," says a passer-by, as he observes the small white wreath of flowers, with its nar row ribbon streamers, tacked upon the door. "Only a baby," and yet to those two bereaved ones, only baby, and baby gone, means a grave dug in their hearts, as it were, from which wells up waves of grief so mighty and so restless that they seem to almost choke off their very life's breath, fight it as they may. And now the neighbors, and friends begin to pass into the room; some take a hurried glance at"Hre sweet baby face, drop their cards upon a side table and depart, while others linger, joining a group of friends scattered throtighout the rooms. Occasionally a mother lifts her little one up to see baby, and the wondering tot looks and is filled with awe, for, small as it is, it is con scious of some great power—the same great power that so manifests itself to as all that, regardless of surrounding circumstances, "there is naught that can make death other than death."' Many stages of life are represented by those who come to pay their respects to the bereaved couple, but of them there i» one class which has an air about them peculiar to themselves. They are those who have watched their own babies through an illness, whether brief or lengthy; watched so hope fully, fearfully and prayerfully, and then after battling through a dark vale of suspense, tossed and torn by conflicting hopes and fears, have crossed the tiny hands o'er the stilled bosoms, bowing their heads- as best they could in humble resignation. .Most likely they see the baby before them for a moment only, and then the face and form of their own de parted returns to take its place, and when kneeling for a moment to place at its feet a floral tribute, the tears that fall among the flowers are none the less sincere because they are twofold in their mission. Now the carriage containing the minister has arrived. The father de scends the stairway and enters the carriage, a friend of the mother's takes her place opposite the two, and the tiny casket, which has been ifted from amid its bevy of flowers, s placed across from the lady's lap o the father's. Even the weight of he casket, light as it is, is dear to hat father. He feels much com fort in being near baby, as its lours above earth are so rapidly les sening. The flowers are placed be side the driver and the carriage 'tarts onward. In an upper chamber the 'thoughtful nurse pulls back a •urtain. and the mother, raising her self on her couch, supports her heac :>n her elbow and watches the reced ing carriage with eyes dark wit! motherly yearning; watches unt.il a corner is turned and even the him wheels are hidden from her sight Wearily she lays her head down upon her pillow and hides, her face be neath the sheet. There is not > sound in the room. Gently the nurse lowers the curtains, hides from view a tiny powder putT on the dresser, and with motherly thought fulness takes with her the bain basket—a lovely creation of cream) lace and blue ribbons —as she learea the room, in hopes that kindly sleej may, for a time at least, bring for gctfulness to baby's mother.
