Good News From Maine. Advices from the Maine election up to midnight tell of a comfortable Republican victory In that state, and thnt the plurality will be 30,000 or over. This Is exceedingly good news, when It la known that sanguine leaders of the party did not count on more than 25,000. The comparisons are made with the abnormal year of 1S06, when the plurality was 48,000. There were Ave state tickets In the fleld, and reports from the state show that there was marked apathy toward national Issues, but a romnrkable quickening on state Issues, there being a tremendous agitation of questions of taxation, from which the Democrats seem to have profited slightly. In spite of these factors the result Is highly cncouraglng to tho Republicans, for leaving out the unusual plurality of four years ago, the Indicated plurality of 30,000 this year Is much greater than any cast exceut In 1894, when the people, tiring of free trade noup houses and business depression urid^r Cleveland's administration, rolled up a plurality of 38,078. Two years ago, In 1898, the Republican plurality was only 24,709. Since 1SS0 the average plurality has been 20,000. The Democrats cannot extract a grain of comfort out of the figures given this morning, as they show thnt Maine Is more than true to Republican principles and that the party Is relatively as strong as it was In 1896. The legislature will be overwhelmingly Republican, which secures the return of Senator Frye. The Farmer and tho Tariff, When William J. Bryan was wending his way through .Virginia, he hail the temerity to face large crowds of farmers and tell them that they Were not prosperous. It was. true, he; said, they had been blessed with good crops, but bo far as prosperity Cvent they hud none of it, and he wondered how any farmer could be a Republican.. All of which Was very simple of explanation. It Is eminently true that good crops alone, as Mr. Bryan Intimated, cannot make good times for the farmer. The farmer might have hlB corn cribs and barns full to overflowing, but If there was no purchlslng power.-to take 'his wheat, corn, potatoes and other pro' ducts of the farm there would be no prosperity for him. But Just here th? Republican party steps In and with the establishment of the protective tariff sets the wheels of Industry whirring ana ngnts me furnace fires, gives employment to Idle labor, thereby furnishing a home market for the farmer, with good, prices for all his products. That Is-what the Republican party does for 1 the farmers.and the experience the had with free trade under Cleveland, the farmers know It. But If Mr. Bryan Is elected free trade will come back, Just as sure as he would destroy the gold 1 standard, the handmaid of Industrial activity, and establish the free coinage of silver. This is what he said one day while a member of Congress: ."Protection has been our cannibal tree, and as one after another of our farmers has been driven by the force of circumstances upon that tree, and has been j crushed within Its folds, his companions have stood around and shouted: 'Great Is protection!' " T>hey don't believe you Mr. Bryan; they cannot believe you in the light of the former and present condition?distress under free trade and abundance ; under protection. If any one Is disposed to doubt the accuracy of this grouping of agricultural prosperity with Republican rule, and rural poverty with Democratic ascendancy, let him examine the showing of farm prices of wheat on December 1 of each year averaged into periods of four years, beginning with the election of Cleveland in 1S92. The figures are official, being taken from the annual report of the secretary of agriculture. During four years under Cleveland, from 1892 to 1S95 the average r>?.v. ui - iiikui ?uo ui.i vcuia( NVIIU'J during the administration of McKinley, from 1S96 to 1899, the average prlco Increased to 61.5 cents. Other products of the farm likewise participated in this upward tendency, for the total value of the ten staple crops Increased from 51.767.939.671 In 1S95, to *2.09e,9S6.7:?5 In 1899, an addition to the wealth of the agricultural classes under the beneficent system of a Republican protective tariff of $323,047,064, the unquestioned result of opening the mills to American labor, instead of opening the mints to the free coinage of silver. Still Bryan has the nerve to go about the country telling the farmers they are not prosperous; that they only Imagine they are. Abuse of Lincoln in 1864. Bryan and hi3 fanatical following are quite fond of quoting Lincoln these days In support of their "bromstlck ghost" of Imperialism, and the Republican national committee has done well to dig up a few facts In the history of tllP pnuntrv ilnHntr thf* flark- anri irvln<r hours of the rebellion. In 1S64 thcra was the ramc cry raised by the Democracy against Lincoln that Is now phrased by the anti-imperialists. In those days they were called Copperheads, and the chief among the Atkinsons, Wlnslows and Schurzs of that period was Clement L. Vallandlngham. of Ohio, a pernicious rebel; and, baca&sb President Lincoln took drastic measures to suppress this traitor he was referred to by seditious speakers in Congress as "the emperor at the other end of the avenue." Vallandingham was giving aid and comfort to the Southern Confederacy in the same manner Bryan Is doing 10 Aguinaldo, who Is In rebellion agaliist the authority of this government today. So It happened on June 2S, 1S64, Senator Saulsbury In the senate of the United States hurled the following at Lincoln in discussing Vallandlngham's case: "Great God! A free American citizen living In a country the people Inhabiting which are secured In their rights by a fundamental charter, a charter ivhJch secures freedom from arrest except by due process of law; a citizen of such a country as that arrested by telegraph, a telegraphic dispatch from the seat of the emperor at the other end of the avenue. ' * I am also Informed that a military ^nicer has been here from Ohio for the last several days waiting hour by hour the command of the man who sits enthroned at the other end of the avenue." Commenting on these discoveries of ancient Democratic lore by the national committee the Chicago Tribune says: "That Ih rather worse thnn anythlnc tiaifi about McIClnley now. We are only told now that McKlnley contemplates Imperialism. or that his policy will re.sull In It at homo time In the future, but "Emperor Lincoln" was accused of hHvIns already reduced the country from a republic to an empire, and of alreadv sitting enthroned In the white house. In the wme speech Senator Saulsbury remarked: " 'Wo *ny to you ?i5 free American citizens go to the noils, cunt your votes Iroely for the man of your choice, even If It Is for Abraham Lincoln, the mnn of all other men on the face of God's earth most unlit to administer the affairs of this government.' "The most bigoted advocate of antl-lmperlallsm and little America will not fro that far In denunciation of McKlnley now. History Is repeating Itself Jn the cry of Imperialism, but It hasn't the virulence now It had In Lincoln's day. The national committee Is making some Interesting contributions to the history Mr. Bryan hai rather mistakenly tried to revive. Galvc3ton'a Appalling Calamity. An awful calamity has befallen Texas, whose const was swept by a hurricane last Saturday working great destruction to property and resulting In an appalling loss of life. Galveston, by It* peculiar situation on an Island bore' the brunt of the wind, which was blowing at the rate of eighty tnlles an hour. Thousands of lives were Inst In that city alon*. and the horror of the situation can scarcely be appreciated. The wind, forced the sea water over the Island in great waves, and amid tumbling build* InRs ar.d the fury of the storm, with the water six fr>et deep In the streets the Inhabitants had no refuge to fly to as they weje cut off from the main land by the destruction of the bridges. What agonies of mind they must have endured during those dnrk and calamltoun hours from 5 o'clock until midnight on Saturday, when the hurricane showed some signs of abating Us fury. The plight of Charleston, South Carolina, terribly shaken an It was by earthquake, was ' not 80 sorely stricken In comparison with the nature of the disaster inflicted upon Galveston. To give some faint Idea of the charucj ter of this terrible visitation it is only 1 necessary to point out the geographical situation and the topographical formation of the island on which Galveston Is located. The city Is situated on an Island extending east and west for twenty-seven niiles, and is seven miles In its greatest width north and south. I In no part of the city is it more than six feet above the sea level. The Island I from the north side Is connected with the mainland by railroad bridges and the I longest wagon bridge in the world, I nearly two miles in length. In 1S72 the I entire east end of the city was swept away by the tidal wave that followed a terrific storm that swept the gulf coast for three days. It Is on the south side of the city, beginning within fifty yards of the medium gulf tide, that the i wealthy resident portion Is located, anil which was the first'part of Galveston 1 to be stricken by the full force of the recent storm and flood. All of the eastem end of the city must certainly be! washed away. . The only protection that has ever' vceri provided for the gulf side of the! city has been two stone breakwaters, but many times with ordinary storms coming In from the gulX the tidewater has been hurled over the low stone walls right to the very doors of the residences. Prom Virginia point, six mile.* from Galveston, In ordinary conditions | of the utmosphere, the city can be I plainly seen. If It Is true that Galvea- I ton cannot now be seen from the point, the condition of thu people In the city | must be Indescribably horrible. A Bowery Depew. It Is only In recent years that the Republicans of New York city thought It worth while to pay any attention to that part of the metropolis called the Bowery. Senator Depew It ivas who! believed It was good missionary ground, I and In 1396 broke the Ice for Republican orators who have followed him. Thr I other night a product of the Bowery,! Tom Ronun, an orator Indigenous to the I soil, and nicknamed the "Bowery De1 pew," addressed an audience of his i familiars in the homely phrases of the j street. In the course of his rather pointed remarks he rejoiced that it was no longer a crime to be a Republican on the Bowery. "It used to mean," said our eloquent friend, "six months on the Island." His speech was meaty all the way through from the fact that personal experience had furnished him with arguments. For Instance: "What I want to know," he said, "is where the people come In with the Democratic party? I carried a banner for Cleveland In 1832, and It wasn't long after he was elected that I was carrying It steady. And when I took Judging# Jn City Hall Park a ble $300 Tammany Hall policeman came along and pave me the hustle. "I call him a $300 policeman because that Is the amount it takes to be a policeman under Tammany rule. I know what I'm talking about, and so do you. Tammany has to have money to buy votes. What 1 hope Is that yon will have sense enough to vote the Republican ticket, but if you haven't, my advice to you is to get the 'dough.' Raise the price to $10 on them, and then Croker won't be owning so many race horses; "When Cleveland ran for President I was superintendent In a furniture factory in Amsterdam. The j?eople who owned the lactory thought that if they could get the tariff off lumber It would be u good thing for them.' They got It off, but other psoplc were playing the same game. The result was that business went to pieces because people dln't have enough money to buy, and I lost my Job. "If Bryan Is elected we'll have the same experience we had during Cleveland's last administration. There will be no money In circulation, and when there's no money in circulation It will be tough tack*. I'm satisfied to be dead broke If everybody else has got a million. I can borrow enough to get along. Hut when nobody's uot any money you've got to carry the banner." Vicious Conspiracy Disclosed. The threatened strike of the miners of the anthracite coal regions of Pennsylvania has been averted, and at the same time there has been disclosed one of ths most wicked conspiracies ever formed for political purposes, going to 'show that the Democracy Is In very desperate straits indeed. This Is no Idle or reckless charge, for the governor or Pennsylvania and other state authorities have In their nonsesslon full knnivl. eilgo that the strike was started, fostered and backed by conspirators working In the Interest of Bryan. That .Ir. Bryan himself anticipated this strike is well known, for he proclaimed his belief that Jt would occur during: his tour through this state. Developments show that the rumors which were circulated in July soon after Bryan's nomination, that the Democrats would abet strikes and labor agitations for campaign purposes were not unfounded, notwithstanding the loud denials of Bryan leaders. There will be an attempt to duplicate the condition of eight years ago, when Homestead strikers had to be suppressed by the National Guard, thereby creating an Issue that was largely, if not wholly, responsible for Cleveland's election. Can there possibly be anything more damnabl-.; than a party scheme which sought to make capital out of distress and ride into power over the d.ad bodies of worklngmen whom It viciously encouraged to rlot.and in defying authority bring them into bloody conflict with the state militia. * Dave Hill has contracted' the Bryan habit of referring to the Democracy as the champion of the "plain people." So far as we can tlgure it out we are all Just people, plain people, certainly not horses and dogs. If. however, the senator means the phrase in a homely sense ?well, It would hardly do for the Republicans to boast of their pulchritude. President McKInley in his letter of acceptance crystallized all the Philippine questions in the following paiagraph: "The American question is between duty and desertion. The American verdict will be for duty and against desertion, for the.republic against both anarchy and imperialism." Brynn is anxiously, waiting for that prospective minora strike. What do you think of a inan who aspires to the presidency of this great country who would gloat ov?<r the misery and distress of his fellow beings, and make political capital out of their misfortunes? The dlraster that overtook Galveston Is quite as appalling as the earthquake that shook Charleston. A generous New York Arm rewarded a boy who found one of their Jii.OOu checks in the street und returned it, by \ / MU IV* A V x, VUX m-jLl* pressing upon him with a magnificent disdain for expenses, an unplugged silver quarter. Hon. A. B. White, who Is to be ou* next governor, tells of wonderfully large and enthusiastic meetings everywhere he speaks In the state. Webster Davis has probably retired to the cave of Adullam. The State Fair Is a hummer this ycar.c Don't miss it. The weather like politics Is all "heted up." OUB COURSE IN CHINA. United States Senator Scott on the Triumph of American Diplomacy. New York Sun: United States Senator Nathan B. Scott, of West Virginia, remnrked yesterday that the attitude which the American government had assumed and kept throughout the Chi nese crisis made him more than ever proud of his citizenship. The news from Europe waB under discussion- at national headquarters and Mr. Scott said: "The revelations of the past two days must cause every true American heart to beat with pride. Again has this country shown its ability to take the lead in Important diplomatic negotiations. and to more than hold its own with the experienced diplomas of the European powers. It was the United States government's note of last July which proved the entering wedge into China and led directly to the rescue of the Imperilled foreigners in Pekin. And now It Is our government which is leading the way toward a permanent peace and honorable settlement of the whole dllilculty. The prominence of the United States in these negotiations and its prospective success therein, must raise our country immeasurably in the estimation and respect of the world. The pending settlement Initiated at Washington provides for the withdrawal of all troops from China, the maintenance of the open door, the rc-establlshment of the Chinese government, and the redress of recent grievances and preservation of all treaty rights. This Is certainly a most equitable programme. and it reflects infinite credit on the head und heart of its framers. If is hnrdlv Riinnn<mh1p thnt nnv nf th?* European powers, even Germany or | England, can long: hold out against It. | "Another Important point brought out I Into bold relief by these recent diplomatic events has relation to the ques! tlon of imperialism. From the first, the McKlnley administration has shown ! clearly that its policy in regard to China was as far as possible the reverse of imperialistic. Its purpose was simply to protect our citizens In China, and it has had absolutely no designs oi^the partition of China or the acquisition of I territory in that country. And now our government again answers the howl about imperialism by definitely proposing to withdraw all foreign troops from China and rehabilitating the Chinese government. There Js certainly not much Imperialism or militarism In such a policy as this." General Advertisers' Guide.
