It lies between Kansas and Pennsylva

The Democrats will soon be taking af

Let them see to it that each affidavit is ac

Mb. Clark's neighbors appear to have
deeerted him with something of the un
certainty of his political friends in most
parts of the Territy. The majority against
him in his home ward is reported at 432.
The esteemed orgaa berates Blaine.
This, as a matter of course. All such do
the same. More than any other man
Blaine helped to down Democracy. In
doing that he most offended Cleveland
Clark and all organs and oracles of their
kin. __
Except in Northern Montana, where
the Montana Central and Manitoba are
omnipotent political factors, the stampede
from Democracy was general throughout
the Territory. Broad's precincts never
flinched, and as usual rolled up for Clark
and the straight party ticket some phe
aomenal majorities.
The Republican standard bearer made
the most energetic campaign ever attempt
ed by a Delegate in the history of Mon
tana politics. M. Carter was bold, in»
trepid, vigilant, perserving and confident
from the opening to the close of the con
test He won the victory gloriously. He
was unconquerable.
The new editor of the organ foolishly
ventures the remark that "the country has
had quite enough of Blaine.'' The recent
political earthquake didn't show it. Fur
thermore, the proprietor of the Independ
ent , il he was on the ground, would him
self probably be the first man to apprise
the new editor of his mistake.
The English press, more prndent than
8nckville, affects indifference at Harrison's
election. They say Cleveland proved him
self a demagogue at the last and forfeited
the esteem he had before won. The pros
pect that this country will protect its man
ufacturing interests and repudiate^ free
trade does not awaxen the rejoicing that
Democrats predicted over their retention
of the markets of the world.
The presence of a large squad of special
U. S. deputy marshals, at the polls in
Helena for the first time in onr history,
gives rise to many queries as to its legal
ity, propriety and phrpose. They did no
harm, for the good people of Helena of
both parties have always shown themselves
abls to insure quiet and honest elections.
The main question is whether a Delegate
without a vote in Congress comes within
the provisions of the law authorizing the
appointment of special deputy marshal.
Every Democrat in the country has
suddenly became a civil-service reformer.
It forcibly brings to mind that familiar
"When the devil was sick, the devil a monk
would be.

It is pretty early to sngge3t an extra
session of Congress to the President elect,
but if the Democrats at the coming session
refuse, as is probable, to admit -Dakota, we
believe that tbe outrage upon ths dis
franchised people of that long and mneh
suffering Territory would justify the call
ing of an extra session of Congress as soqp
as it could be legally gotten together.
South Dakota has a'ready adopted
a constitution and elected State offi
cers and could be admitted at once, and
at the same time, enabling acts could be
passed for North Dakota, Montant and
Washington. The vote cast last Tne-day
is as good as a census to show that all of
these Territories, and perhaps others, have
every requisite for the earliest possible ad
mission as States.
If Republicans generally ragprd this
question of the importance that it intrin
sically possesses, they will join ns in ask
ing President Harrison to call Congress to
gether as soon as it can be done to correct
this long standing injustice.
The increasing flood of business requires
longer sessions of Congress. With the
House organized and the Senate reinforced
by the Senators from South Dakota and
enabling acts passed for the other Terri
tories, it would be a great acceleration of
business when Congress came together in
December following.
If this is not done, we would further
suggest that the Legislature of Montana,
when it comes together this winter, should
provide for another constitutional conven
tion to meet daring the summer and pre
pare a constitution to be voted on in No
vember, and at the same time vote for
Members of the Legislature and State
officers in case the constitntion
was adopted, as, no doubt it
would be. Then we would
be ready for admission as a state soon after
Congress a-^mbled in regular session and
we should accelerate Statehood by a year
or more. We invite an expression of opin
ion from our contemporaries generally on
this subject and commend it to the consid
eration of Républicain all over the country.
We almost feel like apologising for the
doubt expressed yesterday of the Republi
cans having a working majority in the
House. Later retnrns remove all doubt of
this kind. The importance of this branch
of Congress, where all revenue measures
must originate, and which was equally im
portant in the matter of admitting new
States, led us to scan the returns most care
fully till we conld be assured of tha result.
McPherson, Secretary of the Congressional
Committee, is the best informed man in
the country on this subject, and has made
it his special business to be in corres
pondence with the best posted men in
every Congressional district in the country.
The latest revised returns show a complete
confirmation of his earliest estimate, that
the Republican majority in the next
House will be fully twenty, and we fur
ther predict that Thos. B. Reed, of Maine,
will be the next Speaker of the House.
The unexpected good news that tbe Re
publicans have a majority in the Delaware
legislature, which has the choice of a suc
cessor to Senator Saulsbury, is too import
ant to be passed without special notice. It
has always been considered of late years a
pocket borough of the Bayard family, and
one familiar with tbe election laws of that
state will realize the revolution necessary
to have secured the result announced.
There must have beep some family
quarrel of which we have not
yet been advised. The result must be
worst for Bayard than Sackville's letter.
He will perhapB heed now the New York
Herald's advice, to confine his genius to
terrapin soup, or something nearer its size
than the state department of this great,
proud, progressive nation. But the best
thing above all odds in this Delaware re
sult is the reinforcement of the Republican

Any Republican rejoicing that omits to
make special mention of the grand victory
achieved by the Republicans of West Vir
ginia would be altogether incomplete.
The truth in all its fall proportions is leak
ing oat and the victory is apparently as
complete and overwhelming as that in
Montana. Free trade Democracy did the
business and seems to have done it so com
pletely that there is no hereafter
for the Democracy in that state
which bears the first fruits of the
»generated [South. Its relapse to Bour
bonism was keenly monrned by the Re
publicans, bat thanks to such heroes as
Goff, who ia just elected Governor, the
State ' has come back to the Republi
can fold to stay, and it comes in fall force.
Az the first permanent breach in the Solid
South, it is a noteworthy event. It has
the same electoral vote as Connecticut, and
with Indiana would give the Republicans
their president even without New York.
Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria.
We do not believe in kicking a man
when down, bat those who are trying to
represent President Cleveland as a victim
of a great principle are playing a small
farce in the style of high tragedy.
Now that Cleveland is snowed ander for
free trade we hear that he told Fairchild
when writing his message last December,
that it would hart him for reelec
tion. There is no 'hing particularly in
credible about this remark having been
made, for any man of ordinary good sense
must have seen that it would hart every
Northern interest, and the chances of any
one dependent upon Northern support. Mr.
Cleveland's opinion that free trade "was
right, will not elevate him in the. opinion
if any one who thinks it wrong. Even
greater men than he, have thought so, and
doubt, honestly thought so.
But the idea that he risked the chances
of re-election in his devotion to principle
is absurd on its face. Every one knows,
through his own first message, that he did
not contemplate a second term. Just when
and how this ambition was born we are
not told. But when it did take possession
of him thtte was a complete surrender. It
is clear to us that the Southern pleaders
made the acceptance of free trade, alias
revenue reform, a condition cf renomina
tion. Without a renomiuation there could
be no re-election. The country does not
need be told what passsd between the
President and the Southern leaders, it is
all written and published in messages and
well known acts.
Naturally enough Cleveland might have
thought free trade would hurt him at the
North, but by keeping out Dakota, with a
solid South, the whisky and other rings,
and the free trade interest of New Y ork
city and other sea-ports, there was a possi
ble chance to pull through once more, and
he took the only chance there was left to
him. And never were the whole powers of
government more completely prostituted
to win an election than in this last cam
paign. Civil service reform went ^to, the
dogs. His Southern masters had every
thing they asked for. The treasury was
used for electioneering purposes. Money
that should have been used to reduce the
national debt was loaned to banks without
interest and counted as surplus.
Cleveland's ambition for a second
term ma le him a ready instrument for
Messrs. Carlisle, Mills and Co. of the ex
confederacy. It was "now or Lever" to
them. When one realized how near those
Southern leaders came to succeeding, it
almost makes one tremble for tbe future.
But tbs danger is past. The South
has met another Appomattox in
the political field aad the result
will be utter mid complete
overthrow to the old political South.
Within the next four years a new census
will increase the relative strength of the
North. New States will be admitted that
will give that section permanent control of
the Senate. Left without executive and
official pressure, the peop'e of the North
will be almost unanimously iu favor of
Before another four years pass away
several of the Southern States will bave so
increased their manufacturing interests
that they will be as reliably Republican
as any State at tbe North.
Some Democrats remark that Cleveland
made a mistake in forcing the issue ot free
trade too soon. It was not his fault. It
was the only condition on which he conld
have had the nomination at all. The ease
with which the Southern leaders bent the
President and northern Democrats to their
will, inspired them to the wild hope that
the whole north oould be had to their
wishes in the same »way and by the same
Now that the free trade leaders of the
Democratic party have suffered national
disaster they will be everywhere re
pudiated, and those Democrats who find
themselves excluded from the party coun
cils for being protectionists will natnrally
affilate with the Republicans. There is
really no other issue at preseat before the
The la6t general act of the last extra
session of the Legislature of Montana
made the counties of Park and Fergus one
Council district. The second section of the
same act says it takes effect from and after
the 1st of November, 1888. That was
practically four days before election. The
law was not in force when the nominations
were made, bat it would have been reason
able to suppose that nominations would
have been made in reference to the law on
election day.
So far as we can jndge from the pub
lished tickets in the newspapers of both
Park and Fergus counties, both parties in
each connty voted for separated candidates.
Granville Stuart was the Democratic can
didate in Fergus, and William Fields in
Park. And in the same way Frank R.
Stoddard was tbe Republican nominee in
Fergus and George M. Hatch in Park.
The only way that we can see to deter
mine who is elected Councilman is to de
termine which of these four candidates has
the highest vote in the two counties. Re
publicans may be elected in both counties,
but the one who has the largest vote mast
represent both coanties, though in one
c oanty he did not receive • single vote
We mast presame the voters of 'these
two coanties know what they were doing
and will be satisfied with the result.

It is too soon to tell just what figure
these two political contingents cut in the
late election. In New York, the leading
organs of the Mugwumps were for Cleve
land for President and Miller for Governor,
and as neither succeeded we may natural
ly infer that they injure the cause to
which they attach themselves. They
were in favor of Cleveland as a civil
service reformer and when that pretext
failed they supported him as a free trader.
They are the worst enemies of the Repub
lican party. Pretending to be better than
other men, they consort with the worst and
always do their utmost at the worst time
and for the worst cause. Judged by their
acts rather than their professions, they
rank well down among the Southern ku
klnx. They seem to be a cross between a
hypocrite and assassin and do no credit to
either parentage.
As fur the prohibitsonists, it would not
be fair to speak of them all as influenced
by the same motives. Some of them are
Sincere and their motives are to be respected.
They call themselves temperance people,
but they are forever lending themselves to
defeat the cause e they pretend to
serve. In New York they aided to their
utmost the election of the saloon candidate
for Governor.
They are the allies of the Democratic
party everywhere. Their excuse is that
they can make no impression on the Dem
ocratic party, but they hope by breaking
up the Republican party that a large pro
portion of it may come to them and
that they can thus assume the
size and influence of a national
party. They believe, judged by their
acts, in doing evil that good may
come. Thecanse of temperance in the
world has no worse enemies than the pro
fessional Prohibitionists. They shoeless
sense and more malignity than any party
in onr prolific history of parties in this
country. As long as the cause of temper
ance is in their hands nothing for its prac
tical success can be expected.
Anything that can be done to repress the
evils of intemperance deserves the hearty
support of good men of all parties, and
they conld easily bo brought together by
rational means. Bat Prohibitionists don't
want temperance, nnlees in their prescribed
way, and that they never will get so long
as there is good sense left to a majority of

"No Bugson Carter."
A lady friend of the Herald tells the
following story of an incident that trans
pired the night of election day: The Hel
ena polls had closed a id the cheers of hun
dreds of men for Carter conld be heard
coming from the crowds in front of the
newspaper offices. The lady stepped to
her window to watch the snow Btorm,
which was just at that timeraging furious
ly. The Hakes were coming down thick
and fast and already a white carpet cov
ered the ground. Soon she heard tbe sound
of a voice and, peering out in the dark,
she descried the figure of a small boy, Dot
mere than eight years old, ploddiDg along
in the snow in the middle of
the street. He had a backet
of milk in one hand, bat
it was evident his thoughts were else
where than on his errand. He held his
bead down and mattered to himself, sup
posing no doabt that no one heard him*
The lady, however, caught his words,
which were: "What'o the matter wUh
Carter ? He's all right. Ther're no be gs
on Carter. You can bet yonr bottom dollar
on him"—and the queer little figure,
covered with snow, moved on down the
block, still mattering to himself, "no bugs
on Carter."
A Crook Turned Loose by Executive
Clemency Returns to His Old
John Crawford, who was convicted last
September for petit larceny and sentenced
by Jndge Sanders to 90 days in jail, was
pardoned by Governor Leslie on the morn

Yesterday this "gentlemen," • subject
worthy of tbe consideration and executive
clemency, who cast bis vote for tbe "Good
Canse" ot Democracy, was rear rested for a
like offense and is now lingering in tbe
city's bastille awaiting trial and sen tence.
The public will be well rid of such "gen
tlemen." A long sentence may have a
better effect than a pardon.
