Advices up to the eve of election represented the Democrats confident of 15,000 majority. Train loads of Demo cratic tramps were being dumped daily along every railroad line. Barnum, with the purse of the entire Democratic party, was buying up every "mule" in the mark et. There was good ground for fears. We shall be content now with even a majority of 1,500, though Porter's majority will probably reach 5,000. It will be easier to win thousands in November than it was hundreds in October. Though Landers concedes the election of his opponent by 4,000, there is a ray of hope for the Dem ocrats from dark and distant corners and along the Kentucky border. The idea of attributing this disaster to the Greenbackers is ridiculous and ungrate ful. In the first place Landers is an avowed Greenbacker, and for this weak ness he became the choice of the Demo crats to call back to the fold any wander ing sheep of this band. On the contrary, Porter was a hard money man, and the campaign has been waged by the Repub licans openly and stoutly against this cur rency delusion. If any Greenbackers voted for Porter it was an abandonment of their principles, a renunciation of that cause. We are further told that Weaver has been working for Porter. There is no evidence or reason for making such a charge. It is true that his experience in Alabama opened wide his eyes upon the aims and methods of the Democracy, and induced him very warmly to oppose fusion with the Democrats. But he has been equally earnest and resolute in opposing fusion with Republicans, where such a proposition was tendered, as in West Vir ginia. The early returns make no men tion of the Greenback vote, and so far we do not know whether it was large or small. The fight in Indiana seems to have turned on financial matters principally. At every manufacturing center the Republican gain represents strong opposition to a reduction of the tariff', as well as a substitution of State for National banks and currency. Our chief satisfaction over the result springs front the fact that fraud and violence have been defeated and over thrown. Arrangements were made with out a doubt to swamp the legitimate vote of the State by vagrants and roughs. Be fore the vigilance and pluck of Republi can veterans the contemplated crime was abandoned as unsafe. When it comes to that pass that an election can be carried at the North as now in most parts of the South, our institutions will no longer be worth preserving. The Supreme Court of Indiana reversed the verdict of the people and now the people have reversed the de cision of the Supreme Court. It is a re buke justly merited and well administered. It is estimated that the Republicans have spent over $300,000 on the campaign in Indiana alone.— Independent. The above estimate is equalled by the reported sums contributed by two Demo crats—Belmont and Hilton—the former drawing his cheek for $200,000, and the latter for $100,000, both of which amounts are said to have gone to Indiana in bulk. Add to this, $25,000 furnished by the Louisville Democrats, as also $40,000 re ported by the Chicago Times as handed to the Indiana Committee by Barnum, and the $10,000 ponied up by English at the same time, and it is seen that the Demo cratic purse largely exceeded that of the Republicans, taking the estimates of Democrats themselves. It is somewhat amusing * to watch the Republican merchants coming down to business in the morning and eyeing the store windows and sidewalks for chalk marks to see if the " 320 " wave has struck town vet,— Independent. That is a mean slur upon a dass of citi zens who, more than any others, have contributed to keep the Independent out of the poor-house. There are figures of more significance and swifter understood in this commuuity, which the sheet suggesting the above insult may discover some morn ing pasted upon its own door. That will be ? " wave " to talk about. A x/EMOCRAT thinks those Republican "claims" in Indiana heat the "Confeder ate claims" all hollow. The Republican "round-up" ought now to bring Sanders out a thousand ahead. Maginnis never slept with Hancock. . REPUBLICAN PARADE IN NEW YORK CITY. The New York Sun is not a particular ly brilliant luminary, however ambitious its name may appear. In its straits to ac count for the unparalleled Republican pro cession in that city on the night of the 12th, it invents the puerile charge that Democrats were Hired at the rate of $3 a piece to parade for the Republicans. Won't it strike the average reader that if there were any of that kind of Democrats in the procession, their Democracy was very thin and cheap? If men have any strong convictions or a trace of shame, they would hardly put themselves in such a conspicuous place to advertise their price. It may be accepted as true beyond reasonable doubt that any man who had before his eyes any fear of a Tammany boss or expectations of ring favor or em ployment, would not be throwing away his brilliant prospects at the rate of $3 per day. Another commentary we are forced to make. If the Republicans have got such plenty of money as to be able to pay $3 a piece for Democrats to parade for them, it is altogether likely they have enough left to pay «veil a higher price for voters, and if Democrats are as cheap in New York as reported, a little money will go a long ways on election day. The Democrats would like in some way to break the force of that display of New York city voters. According to the dis interested Herold there were 50,000 in pro cession, nearly or quite every one a voter. There were probably at the least as many more spectators and those who took no active part. This is a pretty good promise of a Republican vote in the city of at least least 60,000. Cornell received only 46,322. Even if the united Democracy can keep its lull vote up to 100,000, it would only indicate a majority of 40,000 in the city. Unless the city does better for Democracy than that, Garfield will carry the State by at least 50,000 majority and such is the present prospect. In ex planation we would say that though the commercial class in the city favors a re duction of tarif!' and supports Democracy, the entire manufacturing class with their numerous employees are opposed to re duction of tariff' prices and wages, so they are naturally Republicans. MAGNITliuK OF THE TRIUMPH. Additional adviees from Indiana and Ohio bear out and corroborate those re ceived yesterday and establish beyond con troversy the sweeping character of the tri umph of Tuesday. No news is of to-day's date, but Chicago, Indianapolis, Columbus and other dispatches are of a later hour than those wired to and published in the Herald of last evening. We consider the result in Indiana so decisive as to place it irrevocably in the column of Garfield and Arthur States, while the 20,000 or more plurality in Ohio signifies that that grand commonwealth will "make it more binding" in November by an increased Republican vote of many thousands. The triumph in Indiana passes every expectation in the magnitude'of the vic tory reached. While Republicans were sanguine of success should their friends in the State prove able to secure an honest ballot, there was nevertheless grave dis trust as to the extent that their opponents would succeed by importation and other desperate methods in nullifying the will of the people. It appears now that the Republicans have reclaimed the State not in part only, but wholly. This includes Governor and other State officers ; Legis lature, which carries with it a U. S. Sen ator; and nine Congressmen, instead of seven, reported yesterday—a gain of three instead of one. In Ohio the result is gratifying, not only as regards the magnificent vote by which the Republican State ticket is elected, but in relation to the Congres sional contest, which probably returns fif teen members to the Democrats five—a gain Ifor the Republicans of six members. With no other gains in other States, and conceding that the political complexion of all other members to elect remains as now, the next House of Representatives is rescued from the Democrats and placed in control of the Republicans. Nor is this all. .The chances are that the Senate also after the 4th of March, will be Republican. This result is expected. We place gréât reliance in the prophecy that both the Executive and Legislative branches of Government will be Republican for the four rears beginning with March 4th, 1881. ' _ " The Democratic paper warns disconso late intruders from further trespassing upon its premises and patience with election inquiries. The ordeal through which our contemporary has passed with in the last few days has probably not had its counterpart in a life time. And on top of this comes the still greater trial of No vember! __ As the Herald observed months ago, Hancock will continue right along, next year as this, discharging his military duties, with headquarters on Governor's Island. t POOR MAN'S PARTY. Few people will be inclined to question the Independent's assertion that the Demo cratic party is the "Poor Man's Party." Very likely many would be a. illing to go further and concede that it was a poor woman's party, a poor children's party, in fact a poor party for anybody. But more seriously we concede the force of the claim. The Democratic party is pre-emi nently the poor man's party, in this, that the tendency of its whole policy is to make a man poor and keep him so. It is the party that wants to break down the tarriff and allow the land to be flooded with the cheap wares of the pauper labor in Europe. Of course rich men with money could buy so much the cheaper, but the poor man would be thrown out of employment or forced to compete with those who for generations have been accustomed to work for their daily bread. In another respect it is the poor man's party. It has cheapened the poor man's silver dollar and stamped it: with a fictitious value. This makes little odds to the rich man who has the chance to make himself even, but it takes 25 cents out of the day's wages of every poor man who works for $2.00 per day. It is a fear ful weight upon the heavily burdened shoulders of the poor working man. Over 12 per cent of share on all his earnings the poor man has to stand as a tribute to the ignorance and folly of the Democratic party. In history we read of unscrupulous kings eking out their revenues by debasing the coin or their realm. Riot and revolu tion were their reward during life and in famy has been their portion ever since. The Democratic party is further the poor man's party, in that it is on record as opposed to those works of internal im provement that cheapens the cost of get ting the poor man's crop to market and his purchases home again. It is a poor mans's party, too, in its policy of opposi tion to the Homestead law. It has no policy for generations that has not tend ed to degrade, cheapen and defraud labor, the poor man's capital. A few rieh, lordly landlords, surrounded by crowds of ignorant, debased, dependent day laborers, such as slavery furnished to the South, has been the model state of society to which all Democrat policy tends. Does it not well derive the title it assumes of being the poor man's party? It is hard to conceive a poorer one at any rate for any party. BARNUM'S WAIL ON INDIANA. Chairman Barnum is back from his mule buying and skirmishing expedition to In diana and evidently feels sad and sore. He is out of money and out of luck, his heart is heavy and his purse is light. Very naturally, knowing his own bid and the fact that the mules were struck oft'to the other fellow, he thinks he was outbid. The Republicans, according to his reck oning, must have levied other and larger assessments than he was advised of. He virtually informs his employers that they must put up again and much more liberal ly or the jig is up and the Democracy might as well take in its shingle and re tire from business. The party has subsist ed on the cold crumb of comfort from Maine till it has become very emaciated, and is ruminating the solemn question whether to die at once and have done with it, or keep up the spasmodic motion of life for two or three weeks more. With New York and New Jersey, and three electors on the fusion ticket of Maine, Barnum says they could still pull through. He doesn't name Connecticut any more. As for either New York or New Jersey, there is much less chance and hope for the Democracy than there was in Indiana, and as for any electors for Hancock from the "rock bound coast of Maine," there is less hope than there was for Cronin from Oregon in 1876. Poor Sammy was defeated four years ago, says Barnum between his sobs, and now they are going to defeat Hancock out of the Presidency. It is real bad, so there, and it is enough to wring every patriotic heart. His allusions to Gettysburg and the days of Hancock's glorv and triumph, are peculiarly unfortunate. Benedict Ar nold was equally the hero of Saratoga. If Hancock was fighting on the same side to day as he was on that glorious day, he might have in pospeet as grand and satis factory a result. Then lie had the Solid South in front of him and now it is behind him. No, Mr. Barnum, the people of the country will not join in your wail. If there is anything left in your campaign purse, give it to Hancock to console his disappointed hopes and ambitions, and go back to your furnaces and forages and trv to redeem a misspent life and fortune. Of course Montana wants her delegate in liar mon) with a majority in Congress and the National Executive. Does Martin still use this argument ? Perhaps he will find he has been electioneering for San ders. Where are the Democratic sports now ? Hancock has no cock-o'-the-walk strut about now._ The only thing left for Hancock sport now is to "hedge." Hancock about now is giving the Hoosiers particular h—11. The Democratic betting men are a bad. lv busted up community. We now rise to nominate John C. \ ow for United States Senator. The Republican canvass, from Delegate to Constable, is booming. Barnum brays as only one long trained to the mule business can bray. Since the election news good Democrats are plenty who think Sanders' majority should be made unanimous. The meanest man in America is W. If. English. This is no Republican slander. We take the Democrats' word for it. Gen. Ben. Harrison is a great orator and a sound lawyer. President Garfield wants a man of his calibre in the Cabinet —Attorney General, for instance. There is not a symptom of "giggino back" in the tenor of election advices from either Indiana or Ohio. More than the Republicans first claimed is assured them. Two years ago the Democratic majority in Indiana was 14,113. This year the State id redeemed to the tune of 6,000 to 7,000 Republican majority. This shows a Republican gain of upwards of 20,000. The reason why everybody expects old Madison to boom next month is because it has the Republicans to boom with* and be cause, too, it has a Republican ticket with which the electors can make a boom on. Boom ahead, and keep her booming. What the defeated Democratic candi dates don't know about Bill English it isn't worth the while of Republicans find ing out. They talk right out loud. After this home ventilation by his own party friends no Republican will be again ac cused of lying about the Democratic can didate for Vice-President. Now that Indiana has chosen a Republi can Legislature we may count the ease hopeful for a Republican Senate after the 4th of next March. Connecticut, New York and Pennsylvania are certain to choose Republican successors to Démo cratie incumbents. New Jersey presents the only doubt and the chances there were not considered half as desperate as in In diana. We wish it were Voorhees instead of McDonald who was to lose his seat in Indiana. Montana for fifteen years has marched in the Democratic column and what honor or profit has she gained from it? We will warrant any one that five years of Repub lican ascendency will sec more substantial progress than all our former history. Every live, active, prosperous, progressive com munity is Republican. Look over the country and verify the statement. Col. Sanders can and will do more for the fame and advantage of Montana in a single term than Major Maginnis has done in four. We are confident a majority of our people think that way and have resolved to try the experiment. There is a painful silence in the dis patches in regard to the Indiana election. The Republican counties have been report ed and the gains published ; but now, when it comes to giving us the returns from the Democratic counties, the telegrams are silent.— Independent. Our Bourbon neighbor has placed great reliance on the backwoods and "pocket counties to reverse the splendid Republi can majorities rolled up in the industrial centers and the school-house neighbor hoods of the State. The "Egypt" of In diana is Democratic to the core, and the Independent had reason to expect it would help out,. as signal as was the party's de feat elsewhere. The "pocket" counties have done their best or worst, but they have failed to do enough. . With two com - ties only to report the Republicans are up wards of 6,000 in the lead. The ''painful silence," we trust, is sufficiently broken to relieve the anxiety of the Independent. Hon. W. H. English has announced his intention to sue the Cincinnati (iiv.dt' for saying that he defrauded his grand mother out of her pension thirty-foliryeai' ago.— Independent. The Gazette prints a broadside showing the dishonest and fraudulent method' adopted by English bv which he procured the pension and swindled !ii> cousins and his aunts out of their proportion therein. Democrats themselves certify to all J'"* everything charged in the indictment. These witnesses are Marcy, Secretary Ml War, Toucey, Attorney General, Coopc*. Commissioner of Pensions, and the blom relations of English. It is the most dam aging arraignment ever brought out agai »' 1 a public man. Every word of b ported by documentary' proof. 1 be zette challenges English to come on" 1 his libel suit.
