Ohio HhmIcI|wI Election!.
1(1 the municipal elections of Monday
oughout the state of Ohio the ca**Ui
. dates placed In the field by the Democrats
were successful in the majority of
Instances, though, with but two or three
unimportant exception*, no national
questions # whatever were Involved, the
Issues being: purely local. Of course our
Democratic friends, or at least that fiction
of the party that voted for Bryan
and free silver last fall, will mftke haste
to grasp at the results as indications that
the people of Ohio, if they had the opportunity.
would reverse their judgment
of last November and vote for Bryan,
free silver and all the Popullstlc fallacies
be stood for. 1
There la no reason whatever for be- 1
Hexing that such would be the case. In
eome of the cities tho results were so
mixed as to make it impossible to claim
a victory for either side, and in others *
both parties put up tickets composed of 1
representative* of both yides, as in Cin- *
cinnati. for Instance, where there were J
three Republicans on the Democratic 1
ticket, and the issue was solely against 4
the continued domination of a local Re- (
publican boss. The people of Ohio, add 1
particularly those in the cities, are just 1
a* much opposed to an unsafe monetary '
system and In favor of the sound princi- '
plea voted for last November as they J
were then.
In some of the larger cities It is doubt- *
less true that a very large element in '
both parties listened to the demagogic 1
appeals of local leaders, who made use of 1
the.fact that recovery from the pajt four 1

come with a leap and a bound the day
following McKinlcy's election.
These people comprise the unthinking
claas that is generally governed in its action
at the polls more by preempt conditions
than by calm reasoning. Tftis class,
as a rule, does not consider that a new
administration, elected under certain
pledges or to carry out a certain policy,
roust have time to carry its pledges and
policies into effect; that months elapse
before it can even have the opportunity
to do so, and that more time must elapse
before tbe benefits of the change of administration
can possibly be felt.
It Is among these people that the demagogue
and the office-seeker prey with T
the best success, and It is probable that i
t they found Just enough thoughtless vic'
tiras of this sort to aid them In effecting c
the result they desired?namtly, to gain j
control of the local offices. Further than c
this it la not at ail likely thft national i
politics entered into the local contest In c
Che Ohio towns and cities. ,1

ver men accomplished little or nothing of t
consequence. A notable Instance occur* i
red In our neighboring county of Bel- <
| mont. In St. Clalrsvllle the Republicans t
E nominated a Gold Democrat for mayor
and the Democrats placed upon their j
ticket a Free Silver Republican for the j
same office. The Cold Democrat on the
Republican ticket was elected, and the f
i Free Silver Republican was defeated in |
J a Republican town. Martin's Ferry, i
which went Democratic last spring, this t
spring elected the full Republican ticket t
The city Is a wage working community, c
In the larger cKIes there was a large falling
off in tho total vote, which was favorable
to the Democrats In the local 1
contests. On national issues the*? cities i
are always depended upon to go Rcpub- 1
llcan. t
J Eighteen months will elapse before an c
election will occur In this country in *
which national questions will be involved. 1
By that time the country will have gone \
very far toward recovery and the pros- 1
perlty which is gradually dawning will, i
In the very nature or thing*, do a fact. a
Municipal elections, Involving purely a t
question of Ifcal ofllces, cast no discour- 1

The Hebrew Plax.
An Interesting ceremony took place at
a Jewish club house in Chicago Sunday <
night. It was nothing loss* than the un- i
furling and dedication of the HebreVna- <
tional Hag, for the first time in the ?
United State* or Europe by any society <
of that people. I
j Not since the fall of Solomon's temple
has the Jewish flag been carried, and it |
has been practically forgotten. The Leasing
club, of Chicago, has. however, had
a beautiful one made and has adopted It
to represent the nation.
There arc very few people who would
recognise ? Jewish flag w??re they to (
see one. It Is simple and emblematical, ,
comprising a double triangle of blue, nlgnlfylng
the shield of King David, stand.
Ing out In a field of white.
The example of the Chicago society <
will doubtless be followed by other He
brew organisation* in tne united mates, .
| and before long we nhnll probably wit- |
neaa the ancient emblem of thfn xt range- |
Iy scattered people, but once powerful i
nation, minf led with olliera on occaaioaa <
nrhen "the flags of all nations" are conplouout
In decorations, lea reappear*
uica after so many centuries will seem
ilmovt like a resurrection of the dead.
Reciprocity.
Tho National Association of Manufacturers
of the United States of America
Mibllshes a very Interesting report of Its
xurnnission sent to inveuUgate trade
^nditlons in Argentina, Uruguay and
Orasll. Aa one renult of rhe comminilon'a
visit to these fruitful countries, we
lnd this paragraph:
"There are many aids watch are need.ld
to supplement individual and personal
iffort. The principle of reciprocity In
trade la a powerful factor, and the application
of this principle by treaty In
>ur commercial relations wKh the naIons
to the south of us would help
mightily In opening those markets more
freely to our good*. The reciprocity
rcatiea which were negotiated under the
ustoms law of 1890 were pretty generaly
recognised as good policy and practl*1
business measures. The sudden and
inwarninieu auivsuwuu ui v>?n
lea has worked no little Injury to our
rade relations with South America and
heir restoration and extension would
freatly promote our commercial interests
In that part of the world."
The reciprocity treaties negotiated unler
the McKlnlcy law wen> producing
f*Kxl results. We were building up a
considerable new trade with the countries
with which we entered into these
reatles. Seemingly for no other reason
lion that his trade was coming to us on
he line of Republican policy, the Democrats
determined that they would have
10 more ??f it. and so they knocked reciprocity
In the head. At once a shrinkage
>egan. Not only this, but the countries
vlth which wc had had reciprocity treates
thought they had been trilled with,
ind resented the treatment accordingly.
The Republican party believes In recJ>roclty
as a useful complement of proection,
and the Plngley bill returns to
t. If the bill passes with the reciprocIV
nmvl(l,v< as ri.tuhUfita it Will. It Will
x? che business of the administration to
inter at once into negotiations for reclp ocal
trade.' If we get into reciprocity
reatit* with ail the Latin-American rembllcs
ami hold them for a decade, we
rhould find that we had opened up a conliderable
market for our manufactured
jroduct* and one that we could hold in
he face of all European competition.
The Klktna Bill.
An evening contemporary, whoae edi;?r
has evidently not read Senator Elkn?'
speech on hi9 whipping bill very
losely. H fearful that in the event of the
>assage of the bill, retaliatory measures
>y foreign countries would render it infffectual
Mr. Elkipa answered this
!ritielsm at length, and showed dearly
;hat foreign countries were not at ail
ikely to retort to a raeasttro that could
>nly result in injury to themselves. Relaxation
is only adopted when tt is an
idvantage to adopt It.
In the early days of the Tepubllc a polcy
similar to that proposed by Mr. Elkns
built up our merchant marine and
ihipplng interests and received the enlorsement
of our foremost statesmen. A
X?llcy of like nature now would restore
18 to our former proud position. BTr.
Slkina* bill ha* the endorsement of many
>f the greatest economists in the country
ind of the la.it national Republican contention.
In the opinion of the contemporary
above named. K is not a wise raea?ire.
Perhaps this outweighs the wlslom
of the economist.*, and statesmen of
:be past ccntury. and the lesson of the
rxpcrience of this nation in its early
lays and of other national And then,
tgaln. perhaps It does not. Sooner or
ater the policy which promises to build
ip ^mericnn commerce on the high seas
viU-prevail.
TtrUf?nd Strikes.
Hlfh tariff legislation and strikes against
'eductions In wages are Inseparable.?Reg
?te?
Labor strike como under all sorts of
renditions, but especially in times of de>res*ion.
Just at present we are having
tome strikes against wage reductions
vhleh arc not due to "hlgn tariff legislai?m."
The partlucJar tariff legislation
vhich is now in force, and haa been in
force during the past three years of adversity
and wage reductions, is a Democratic
tariff act which the Register and
he whole Democratic party promised us
vaa going to make the country prosperrua
and bring happiness to the home of
he working man.
The Democratic tariff haa not accom))ished
one thing claimed for It by the
larty.responsible for its enactment. The
'hlrh tariff" legislation the Register reera
to is, presumably, the bill now pondng
in the senate. It is not yet a law.
ro attribute the present strikes to it is
he veriest demagogy. The industries of
his country are utill subject to that wonierful
Wilson bill.
In Chicago the Free SMverUea. including
Populists, Democrats and all others
Vho believe In the Bryanite and Popu
talc vagaries, united on one candidate
or mayor, Carter Harrison, on a wide'pen
platform against reform and in tutor
of open saloons on Runday and glvng
the lawless element full rein. The o'pwsition
was *pllt There was the reguar
Republican, the Gold Democratic,
ind the citizens' candidate, all repreicnting
reform and opposition to free surer,
'Considering the peculiar situation
;he result wna expected. The opposU
;lon to Harrison, if united, would have
Jefeated him, but It Is now too late lo
liftcuss the matter.
"England will Join in the blockade of
3reek ports. If It Is necessary," is the
way Mr. Curzon puts it In the house of
ommons. There is not much enthuslism
In the utatement. The British government
ha9 heard something drop at
iorne.
Senator Chandler's aen*e of humor
knows no bounds. HI* bill to abolhh
competition in trade In case the Foraker
nilroad pooling bill passes is quite up to
late as a freak suggestion.
A rabbit was raptured the other day In
the heart of Chicago. Nothing short of

refuses to attend social dinners unless
lie has nut rank and Jirit place. It

The Hon. Joseph Bailey, Democratic
leader of the house of representatives,
declined to attend a white house dinner
bcause he never has worn and never
will wear a dress suit. Tcxns will no

At present there Is no duty on wool; p
the Dlngley bill proposes a duty of t
eleven cents a pound. Now. If this elev- o
en cents a pound bo add' I to the cost
of a suit of clothes It will be needful *
to put rather more than forty-five v
pounds of raw wool into a suit in or- e
der to add $5 to its present price. But t
very few men, perhaps no man except s
those who write tariff articles for the c
"Record," wear suits that weigh for- r
ty-flve pounds. Most men wear suits t<
that weigh between four and five <1
pounds, exclusive of lining and pad- s
ding. These men will pay between r
forty-four and flfty-tlve cents more s
than now for their clothes If the Dinglev
