Its effect is most apparent and most important in the house of representatives ; although other effects are not to be lost sight of. The control of the executive department of government in several states that have been in the hands of the Republi- can party is one of these. Another is the possession of a majority of the legis latures of similar states. In several cases this will give us a seat in the United States senate ailed by a Repub lican exclusively, or nearly so, for 25 or -30 years. New Hampshire, New York, Colorado and Wisconsin are such instances. In the case of New York this matter is all the more important, for the reason that the empire state has been for years so gerrymandered that her population has been practically disfranchised in the senate. A fair apportionment of the state would insure the return of a Democratic sena tor year in and year out to an indefinite date. Thus Tuesday's upheaval lays the foundation on which may be built a Democratic senate in time. It will not be for years, of course, for the reason that it now consists of eighty-four mem bers, of which forty-seven are Republi cans and thirty-seven Democrats. Should Teller, of Colorado, Farwell, of Illinois, Blair, of New Hampshire, and Evarts, of New York, be succeeded in the Fifty-second congress by Democrats, taking four members from the Republi can side of that body and putting as many on the other side, the majority of the dominant party will be but two. If Powers were to lose his place in Mon tana, that would make the senate a tie, and if the Farmers' Alliance should un seat Ingalls in Kaunas ami replace him by an independent, thatsenator would have the balance of power. If Palmer should be returned from Illinois, the Demo cratic party would have a slender ma jority. But it is not to be hoped that all these expectations will be tilled. Shdurd half of them carry it would be much; and if we hold our ascendancy among the voters three to five years would make the senate reliably Demo cratic. It is hardly to be expected that we will hold our own in all cases in the election of legislatures to choose senators in 1893. In our own state the next leg islature will be overwhelmingly Repub lican, and the holdover senators will give that party a long start in the race. It is quite likely that in 1893, California will have two Republicans in the United States senate. Therefore it may require four or five years for our party to obtain control of that body. In laying plans to gain such control, we mnst first learn what produced the change in the political complexion of the country last Tuesday, what causes led to the revolt, and how we are to maintain our hold on the voters of the several states. The forces which caused the changes in the political complexion were Republi can votes cast for Democratic candidates. That is simple enough. The causes that led to this change of front on the part of so many thousands of voters are more complex. Mr. McKinley says the tariff alone produced the revolt. It is natural for us all to think we are a bit too near the center of the universe, and there is no reason to think that innate modesty saves the author of the tariff bill from this weakness of our common humanity. No one cause produced the effect in view. Speaker Reed's attempt to sub vert the proper autonomy of the house did some of the good work. Lodge's efforts to interfere with the rights of the stateß to conduct elections as they see fit did its share. The failure of the Republicans in the last session of congress to pass a proper silver bill did as much in making Dem ocratic votes as any other cause. There were local issues that, joined with these others, worked to the same end. In Nebraska and lowa, the fact that a large number of the Republicans are prohibi tionists, and that the party coquette with this crank element, was such an issue. In Wisconsin the contest cen tered largely in an attempt on the part of the Republicans to dictate to people how they shall educate their children. The question was not simply compulsory education, but what branches of study shall be pursued in the public schools. In Pennsylvania the unblushing ef frontery of Mat Quay and his kind in their attempt to run a political machine in order to defeat the will of the honest voters had some effect in creating Patti son's majority. And as a general cause operative over the whole length and breadth of the country was the Lillipu tian dimensions of the national admin istration being run by the little man overshadowed by his grandfather's hat. The charges against the culprit at the bar of public opinion were many, and the verdict of the people was against the multitudinous misdemeanors of the Republican party. The question is, how shall we hold tu«.T3- pew allies and make them per manent and component parte of our party? In a word, by remembering the pauses that brought them over to us. THE LOS ANGELES HBRALD: FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 7, 1890. Any notion that any one cause did this good work is wrong, and | will lead to action more or less radical. Success is liable to blind good judgment and lead to irre parable mistakes. The neophyte is always an easy backslider. Any attempt at one-sided, radical and wild develop ments will drive these deserters back to their own camp. What we want to do is to keep our head, more carefully attend to the businessof the people with earnestness and on a well devised and conservative programme, and we will gain control of the national government in 1892. We have issues enough of a vital sort to forsake all fads and carry the country. Moderate and gradual tariff reform, the building up of a great navy, the fortification of the harbors, the improvement of naviga tion, free coinage of silver, the honest expenditure of public money, proper care of the deserving old soldiers within the limits of proper regard for the rights of the people generally, will win our fight. A TRIBUTE TO GENIUS AND MODEST WORTH. The Fort-street Slimes yesterday as sayed to be humorous at the expense of all its neighbors; and, inebriated by the delight produced by a contemplation of its intellectual offspring, branded the monstrous birth with the sign of a copy right. This was an unnecessary ex penditure of labor and time. The thing is most difficult to dispose of at first hands, and as a second-hand proposi tion the goods are less saleable than junk. The wordy inanity is not worth a cent the million sentences. But it must require some unusual effort on the part of the Slimes to even appear happy under the present circumstances. If it were to allow itself to fall into a contemplative mood, it would do as lago advised be done with kittens and blind nups, incontinently go and hang itself. It opposed the election of Judge McKin ley, with the usual result that he ran ahead of his ticket. McKinley is not a bad sort of fellow; if he were the Slimes would have supported him; but his maternal parent would hardly claim for him any virtues that would account for his beating the other Republican candidates on the judicial ticket. His popularity grows directly out of the opposition of the Slimes. If that highly esteemed contempo rary were to open tire on the devil the result would be to elevate hissatanic majesty to his lost place in the hierarchy of Heaven. But that is not all. The Slimes, for «ome occult reason,while pre tending to oppose the re-election of Stanford, championed the cause of the legislative ticket of its party, making a pet of its old antipathy, Walter S. Moore, a subject as malodorous as one of its own faked and sala cious sensations. The Slimes' pet, the soi-dissant "Blue-eyed Boy of destiny," came out of the fight not only with his eyes of tbe tint of the sloe, but literally pounded to a jelly under the multitudinous and indignant blows of an outraged populace. His own pre cinct—under the shadow of his own roof—set him back sixty votes behind his ticket. Perhaps the destiny Moore met was not all wrought by the friendly offices of the Slimes, but judging by many instances in the past, his Water loo was made all the more dis astrous by the blundering generalship of that Mark Tapley of journals, which can be so hilarious at the expense of its neighbors under such trying circum stances. The Slimes might be a daisy —might be—but is not! The Slimes is pleased to notice us in the way of carp ing criticism. Our methods are not ap proved by it. VVe acknowledge the corn, plead our demerits, doff our sombrero to superior journalistic merit, and ten der the above sincere encomium to dis tinguished genius. The San Francisco Bulletin thinks the result of the election, so different in Cal ifornia from that in the east, is due to the superior intelligence of the people of this state. Much as one would like to lay this flattering unction to the soul, the desire to appear possessed of a com mon measure of intelligence would for bid. The unconscionable lying of the Bulletin had some small influence in the results, and that proposition is not quite in consonance with the claim of intelli gence. The Bulletin is putting in great jeopardy its only small and questionable reason for existing. Besides, the change of heart on political issues was too gen eral and too sudden south of Market street in the breezy city of the Bulletin to justify the assertion that intellect had anything to do with the matter. When the proletariat of Tar Flat and the Barbary Coast is swung in a body to any politi-" cal cause, it is not done by recondite knowledge or abstruse study of tariff schedules. The process is more simple. The Bulletin seems to have forgotten the simple but most efficient means, not intellectual at all, however, by which it was caved down the bank. That is the way the thing was done, dear deacon. Too much sack! That is all the intel lectual processes the state resorted to last Tuesday in arriving at so strange re sults. Tun San Francisco Post gives accounts of many precincts south of Market street, in which the registered vote was 200 more or less, and where 75 per cent, of it all was deposited by 11 or 12 o'clock on the morning of election day. It 13 usual to see a crowd of fifty men stand around the polls in these locali ties all day "waiting for something to turn up." That shows how early and how generally the sack was opened on that day. No wonder all the senators and nearly all the assemblymen from that city are Republicans. Mb. Blame gaid last Saturday night in Philadelphia that the election of last Tuesday was a crisis in the history of the party. He said the defeat of Dela mater would be a wound bo deep that that there would be no balm in < Ulead to heal it. He said to fail to carry Perm sylvania would be the death blow of the Republican party. Republicans usually regard Mr. Blame as an unerring oracle. He probably was in these utterances. The fact that all the senators and nearly all the assemblymen from San Francisco are Republicans, shows where the battle raged the hottest, and where the sack was most potent in Tuesday's election. General Palmer seems to have won his battle in his popular canvass for United States senator. It is a time honored manner of deciding who shall represent the states in the senate. Io Triumpiie! That is the song the victorious Democracy sings in many states held in bondage of the en emy for a score of years past. Ingalls appears to be doomed. His own state spews him out of its mouth as too bitter a pill to retain on the stomach. A THOBOUOHBBBiD Democrat, with no civil service hypocrisy on his lips, can win for president in 1892. Exhuming a Famous Composer. The remains of Johann Christoph Gluck, the great composer, were ex humed at the Matzleinsdorf cemetery, Vienna, where they had rested since 1787, and reinterved at the Centrai cem etery, in the Musicians' corner, near those of Beethoven and Schubert, and close to the Mozart monument. The grave was in a disgraceful state. The grass mouud had fallen in and was overgrown with weeds; the gravestone had disappeared, and only an obelisk bearing Gluck's name marked the spot. The workmen had some difficulty in clearing away the roots and shrubs. The first thing brought up was a por tion of a rotten wooden coffin, followed by fragments of bones —a shoulder blade, portions of the skull, a collar bone, arm bones, the under jaw, with three teeth, a double tooth, one or two ribs, and finally some flowing brown hair, proba bly from a periwig. The earth was 6ifted for an hour, and as nothing more could be found a wooden case was filled with the remains and placed in a hand some metal coffin, over which the Vienna Men's Amateur choir afterward sang selections from Gluck's Vienna operas, performing in the evening his "Ameida." —St. James' Gazette. A Promising Western Industry. The sugar beet factory at Grand Island, Neb., began operations recently, and manufactured over 300 barrels of refined sugar, ready for market, during the first twenty-four hoars it was in operation. The statement is made that it is the largest and most complete beet sugar factory in the world. The long drought cut the crop of beets short, therefore the new factory will only have supplies for a ninety day run. This is an enterprise of wonderful interest to the farmers of 'he great grain raising states. If sugar beet raiding proves successful tbe manufacture of our own sugar will be of inestimable benefit to all the people of the nation. When our shops and factories consume all the farm prod ucts the days of depression and over production are past, and farming will be prosperous business at all times. The Grand Island mill has a capacity of 350 tons of beets per day, which yield 250 barrels of sugar. Every particle of the beet is saved, cattle being fed on the refuse, and chewing gum being made of certain parts that are left over.—lowa State Register. Light Fingered with His Teeth. A few days ago John Beuzley, a well known sporting man, appeared at the Four Courts and complained to the po lice that he had been robbed of a dia mond stud valued at $500, for the recov ery of which he would give $200. He stated that he was in company with a man named Fuerst, alias Forrest, and that when lie awoke next morning his diamond was gone. As the screw part still remained in his shirt he came to the conclusion that it could not have been lost, consequently the thief must have embraced him and bitten the dia mond out of the setting. Hardly had Mr. Benzley reported his robbery when Nettio May complained to the police that she had had bitten out ol her ear a diamond earring valued at $250. She said that she was in company with Fuerst. While they were in the house he placed his arms around her neck and hugged and kissed her. After his de parture she discovered the loss of one of her diamond earrings, although the set ting still remained in her ear, the thief having bitten the diamond out. —St. Louis Globe-Democrat. An Aroostook Product. The annual "potato raid" is in progress in Aroostook, Me., as the starch facto ries are beginning their season's work. This is«no of tho most novel sights to be witnessed in this section of the coun try—the long lino of teams hauling tho potatoes to the factories and waiting their turn to unload. There is a great crop in Aroostook this j-ear, the largest for many years, in fact, and thero will be a good supply for the factories, as the latter are paying very good prices. There are about forty factories in Aroos took county and on its border, and as they use upward of two million bushels yearly, it is seen that potato raiting and starch making in Aroostook are indus tries of considerable magnitude.—Cor. Boston Transcript. A niack Kill- Nugget. A few clays since John White, of Bear gulch, brought in a nugget taken from one of the placer claims in that district which weighed 40 pennyweights C grains. In removing tho sand from tho gold a piece of the original nugget was broken off. The two pieces, one weighing 34 pennyweights 0 grains, the other 15 pen nyweights, are on exhibition at the Deadwood National bank. In the old days Bear gulch and Nigger hill yield ed many a valuable nugget, but few larger than this—before it was broken have been found in any placer camp.— i-teadwood Pioneer. Gen.

A Oitj Lady Who Required Proof Before Believing. There recently appeared in the Ban Francisco Call, Chronicle, and Examiner, a proposition hitherto unheard of in similar business rela tions. It was nothing more nor less than an advertisement In which the Edwin W. Joy Company. In proof of the curative properties of Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla, offered for a limited period to submit it to the terrific test of "no cure no pay." Many accepted, and their letters giving their experience are bo convincing as to be almost beyond belief. Here It another, written under date January «, 1890:— Tear Sirs: I accepted your offer to test tho merits of your vegetable remedy in sick head aches, aud called for a bottle and got it. I had been troubled for a long time, and had tried nearly everything, with little or no effect; but Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla acted almost like magic, and the first bottle relieved mo from one of the worst cases of sick headache one ever had. MRS. M. 8.-PRICE. 16 Prospect Place, San Francisco. We will from time to time publish others ot these letters. It 1b doubtful If any remedy was ever before successfully submitted to such a severe yet convincing ordeal. Mr. Gould's Wealth. Russell Sage's recent interview makes out Jay Gould a richer man than he is generally credited with being. Mr. Sage says Gould is tho heaviest owner of se curities in tho world, his income alone from dividends being $2,000,000 a year. Outside of this he has an income of from $10,000,000 to $12,000,000. It is under stood that Mr. Gould aims to make his wealth net him about 0 per cent., and if this is the case, and Mr. Sage knows what he is talking about, Mr. Gould will have to be moved up several pc;,» in the list of the country's rich men.— New York Letter. Umbrella Parade. There was a novel display by tho col ored people of Ellicott City, Md., a few days ago. It was called an umbrella pa rade, and consisted of a line of men dressed in dark clothes with white caps, carrying tri-colored umbrellas, and fol lowed by two gayly decorated chariots containing children and ladies dressed in white, the whole headed by a band. While marching the umbrellas wore kept constantly twirling, making a pictur esque scene. The affair was under the auspices of the A. M. E. church.—Ex change. Baron James Rothschild, of London, has adorned his drawing room with the most superb electrolier ever made. It is composed of gilt bronze and rock crys tal in a design of the time of Louis XVI, sixty-eight electric lights being skillfully arranged among the bronze leaves. This unique illuminator is about five feet high by twenty-eight inches in diameter, and cost $0,000. Two new sorts of tea are reported from abroad. In England fashion has taken up a mixture of dried and cured hops. In Germany they are using straw berry tea, decocted from tho young leaves of the strawberry plant after they have been dried and prepared like Chi nese tea. A western genius proposes a novel idea in connection with the national encamp ment of the Grand Army in Detroit next year. It is that instead of the cus tomary parade for all the veterans pres ent to be grouped upon a huge raft upon the river to be viewed from passing boats., Thoussnds of people hnve found In Hood's Ssrsaparillu a positive cure for rheumatism.

SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., Atlanta, Ga. 5 CENT DEPOSIT STUMPS. A New Feature in Savings Bank Deposits. The Security Savings Bank & Trust Co. Atl4B South Main street, has for the past six months been receiving Children's Deposits in sums as low as 25 cents and issuing to each de positor a pass-book. As an aid to this department of our Savings Bank and for the purpose of encouraging Small Havings by all persons both old and young, we have decided to introduce whatls known us the 5-CENT DEPOSIT STAMP. We will issue a5-cent Stamp, about the size of a U. S. Government stump, bearing the name of our Bank. To the purchaser of two of these stumps will be given a blank book containing ten leaves, each leaf ruled for twenty stamps. On presentation to the Hank of one of these leaves with 20 stamps, a puss book will be is sued to the depositor showing a deposit of one dollar, which will at once i egin to bear Interest according to the rules of the bank. Every time a leaf tilled with twenty stumps is presented, a ilollarcredit will be entered iv the pass-book, and so on. In order to facilitate the working of the sys tem and in order to enable all desiring to avii.il themselves of its benefits, to secure the stamps and blank books we will have agents In various mid convenient parts of the city nnd county, tt-ho on the purchase of two or more stamps, will give to such depositors a blank book. The depositor, when he has purchased twenty stamps and lilled one leaf, can send or bring the same, to the„Bankand secure his puss book. This 5 cent feature of Savings Deposits has been successfully operat-d in many of the Eu ropean and several of the prosperous nnd pro gressive American Savings Banks: notably the ( iti/eus Savings Bank in Detroit. Believing that it is the province of a Savings Bank to receive and encourage the making of small deposits by both children and grown people as well as to receive the larger accounts oi the more well to do, we have decided to adopt this 5 Cent Stamp System an the simplest and most effective way of obtaining the end desired. We are pleased to announce to the nubile that in a short time we will publish in the daily I apors a complete list of our agents of whom these 5 Cent Stamps und blank books can be ob tained.
