McKinley's victory is a tariff triumph.
A majority in both branches of the
legislature is claimed by the Iowa repub
licanus....
Prohibitory agitation accounts for the
loss of Wheeler and Allen in Iowa and
Massachusetts.
We believe that Iowa has honored her
self by the re-election of Governor Boles
and the choice of a democratic legistature.
It is quite likely that Governor Camp
bell will be found in the cabinet of the
democratic president who will be elect
ted next year.
The Itata case ended Wednesday.
Judge Ross, of the United States court,
rendered his decision granting the motion
to dismiss the case against the defend
ants. The decision is very lengthy.
Will Harrison veto the free coinage
bill when presented to him? Let us wait
and see. He will soon be placed in a
position to say whether he is the repre
sentative of Wall Street or the people.

Under the rules of the Prison Board of

journals can be admitted to the prison.
Thus has Shelby Eli Dillard of the RED
LODGE PICKET secured another scoop on
the New Issue.
The celebrated case of Boyd vs Thayer,
arising from a contest for governorship
-of Nebraska, has been advanced'- on the
docket of the U. S. supreme court, and
the first Modday in December has been
assigned for its argument.
The country is not exited about .Chili.
Americans-will not be greatly excited if
they have to take the infant in hand and
give it a spanking. Uncle Sam will not
hurry about it. In the meantime out
side parties would do well to keep their
hands off.
Governor Campbell's manly fight
against jobs and jobbers among demo
crats and republicans alike made many
enemies in his own party who contribu
ted to his defeat. A man who will make
such a fight strengthens himself in the
long run.-Helena Independent.
The Prince of Wales will soon be fifty
years of age, and his mother, the good
queen,seems blest with a renewal of youth
so lightly does she bear her age. The
prince may be compelled to look throne
ward many years yet before he can enjoy
it and a raise in his salary. England
will be no loser if he continues to look.
A widow fair, and fifty-three, with
nine children, sued a bachelor of fifty
eight, at Appleton, Wis., for. breach of
promise. There was no doubt of the facts;
the gay old Lothario has wooed and won
her somewhat mature affections, and
then had skipped the hymenial lariat, so
to speak. The jury had only to consider
what blighted love at that age was worth
per blight, and finally assessed the dam
ages at $700.
In an interview with Capt. Palmer,
the general manager of the Butte & Bos
ton company, he says that the long post
ponement of the Davis will case will
have no effect whatever on the stock of
the B. & B. That the large amount held
by the Davis estate simple remains in
active and cannot be voted in any election.
And that until the case is decided the
present officers of the company will' re
.main in power.-The People.
The campaign which closes with the
election yesterday brought to the front
several notable young men. The record
made by Campbell, Russel, Boles, and
Fassett is remarkable. They proved
themselves, to be campaigners of the
first order. All are young men and have
the promise of future prominence in the
nation's affairs. The one conspicuous
failure as a campaigner was Major Mc
Kinley, of whom great things were pre
dicted by his friends. His work on the
stump demonstrated the fact that his
forte lies in studied efforts and not be
fore the people in large gatherings assem
bled. As a debater in congress McKinley
was quite a success. He had there
abundant opportunity to carefully pre
pare his addresses and deliver them be
fore an assembly possessing more quiet
and decorum than are found in an en
thusiastic political meeting. The other
gentlemen have yet to win their spurs in
congress, with the exception of Gov.
Campbell.
d
GONE DEMOCRATIC
New York Goes Democratic by
40,000 Majority.
Iowa Elects a Democratic Gov
ernor By a Safe Majority.
The Republican Majority in
Ohio Falls Back Into the
Party Traces.
Flower Elected in the Empire
State by a Large Majority.
Corruption Triumphs in the
Buckeye State.
Restlts in Other Northern
States.
NEW YORK. C
R. P. Flower was elected governor of 5
New York to succeed David B. Hill by a
plurality estimated at from 18,000 to 24,
000. Fassett did not carry Elmira, his
own city. This city gave Flower 568,000
plurality and Brooklyn 14,000. Returns
from districts outside New York and a
Kings county indicate that Fassett has i
been meeting Folger's fate. In Jefferson, t
Clinton, Essex, Montgomery and Wyo- 1
ming counties he is far behind the vote
for Miller. Flower gains on a decreased
vote ahead of Hill.. The vote in this city I
was very light. It was expected that t
out of a registration of 251,533 at least d
240,000 would be polled, but only about I
220,000 voted . .C
Comparatively, Flower ran as well as 1
Hill, who was elected by 19,000. Flower 6
will take to Harlem rlver70,000 plurality.
It is doubtful if Fassett will bring down e
50,000-fo meet it.
The democrats are gaining assembly
men in the state. Sheehen is not doing
as well as Flower, but his election is as- (
sured.
At 10 o'clock Goy Hill sent a telegram
claiming the state for Flower by 40,000
plurality.
The election in New York state to-day
was for governor, lieutenant-governor,
secretary of state, comptroller, treasurer,
attorney general, four congressmen to fill
vancancies caused by three resignations
and one death, eight justices of the su
preme court, a full senate of twenty-five
members, and a full assembly of 128
members. The present state officers are
democrats. Congressmen last elected in
the district where the election was held
to-day were, democrats three,republicans
one. The last senate consisted of nine
teen republicans, thirteen democrats;
the last assembly of sixty-eight demo
crats, sixty republicans. New York City
also votes for local judges, coroners and
alderman; Brooklyn for mayor and other
city officers.
OHIO.
Ohio to-day elected a governor and
other state officers and legislature, and
voted upon a proposed amendment to
the constitution providing for uniform- 1
ity of taxation, and upon the qnestion of
holding a convention to revise the con
stitution of the state.
At 11 p. m. Chairman Hann, on
meagre returns received, claimed that
McKinley's pluality would be about 20,
000. At the same hour Gov.. Campbell
said it was too early to make a estimate,
though he felt confident as the vote in
Cincinnati and Hamilton county did not
show the republican increase which had
been claimed. At midnight he conceeded
McKinley's election.
The whole state has been heard from.
Gregg, republican for auditor general,
has 50,833 plurality over Wright demo- I
crat; Morrison republican for state treas- a
urer, has 47,487 plurality over Tilden, i
democrat. t
IOWA. i
Iowa elected a governor and other state
officers and legislature. (Canidates for
governor: Horace Boles, democratic;
Hiram C. Wheeler, republican; Isaas T. C
Gibson, prohibitionist; A. J. Westfall,
people's.
Under the new election law polls did
not close until eight or nine p. m. A
heavy vote was cast throughout the
state.
The prohibition party vote was the t
lightest ever known since the organiza- a
tion of that party. The weather contin- .
ned cloudy and threatening. The dem- i
ocrats claim the governor, but the a
republicans are confident that country t
towns to be heard from will elect their
man. It is believed the republican state 1
ticket, aside from governor, is elected. d
The redublicans claim the legislature. t
Some interior counties show republican
gains, but it is conceded they cannot ,
overcome Boies' majority of 6,700 of two ,
years ago. -
Five hundred and forty-six precincts
give Wheeler, republican, 68,'79; Boles,
democrat, 69,691. This is a net demo
cratic gain of 259. The republicans are
gaining a little and are more hopeful.
MASSACHUSETTS.
Returns from fifty country towns show
a not republican gain of 708. On this
basis the republican in the state will be
4,942 at least. Indications so far from
the large cities are that Russell has
held the pluralities of last year and is
elected by at least 4,000. The remainder
of the republican state ticket is undoubt
edly elected.
KANSAS.
Out of fifty counties from which re
turns have been received six will probab
ly elect the people's party ticket at great
ly reduced pluralities. The other coun
ties will elect straight;republican or fused
republican and democratic tickets. Of
the ten district judges the republicans
will probably elect eight. No state offi
cerselected this year.
NEBRASKA.
Returns from Omaha and state are
still meager but careful estimates give
- Post, republican candidate for supreme
judge, 6,000 majority over Edgerton, in
dependent and people's.
NEW JERSEY.
Returns indicate the election of the
entire democratic senatorial ticket and
41 out of 60 assemblymen. This will
give the democrats a majority of 83 6n
joint ballot.
VIRGINIA.
n
The democrats claim every senatorial
district in the state. The democrats will
have at least three-fourths of the house
The farmers' alliance elected two candi
dates and the republicans one.
SOUTH DAKOTA.
e Reports from the congressional election
in South Dakota are coming in very slow
ly but enough have been received to in
dicate the certain election of Jolly, re
publican, to congress by a good vote.
The vote for Smith independent, is away
below what has been claimed and con
ceded for him. Jolly's plurality will
)f probably be from 3,000 to 5,000
Colonel Robert G. Ingersoll recently
gave utterance to the following remarks,
which are a sufficient evidence that he is
a silver man: "It is an outrage and an
intolerable imposition on the miners of
this country that we should ever let Eng
land or any other foreign country set the
price on our silver. American mines
produce the silver and then pass it over
to John Bull to make its value. It won't
do. Such statesmen ought to be im
peached for treason. The law that
caused the debasement of silver is a dis
honest law, and there is no question
about its dishonesty. Silver is worth as
much to-day for monetary purposes as
ever in the history of the, world.. It was
adverse legislation that crippled silver
and not the law of supply and demand.
A silver dollar is just as good as a gold
dollar."-Mining Review.
As a test of the feeling of the people of
the country on national issues, more im
portance is to be attached to the result in
Ohio. There the republican policy re
specting protection was distinctively on
trial. Moreover, at the two previous
elections, the democrats had carried the
state. Governor Campbell was elected
in 1889 by 22,000 majority, and at the
congressional elections last year the ag
gregate democratic majority was consid
erably larger. Tuesday the republican
candidate in the person of the author of
the McKinley bill, was chosen by 20,000
majority, and what is more important,
the republicans carry the statelegislature
ensuring the election of United States
senator to succeed Sherman. It is a great
victory and pregnant with prophecy.
Governor Campbell takes the situation
very philosophically and says the demo
cratic party is laboring under too great a
handicap in Ohio, because of a lack of
funds to pay the legitimate expenses of
the campaign. He says they made the
best fight they could in the face of a re
publican majority of 11,000 to start on
and the combined opposition of the man
ufacturers and capitalists. Besides all
this it was a death struggle with the re
publican party. To defeat McKinley one
of its national leaders and the representa
tive of its chosen idea of protection meant
the downfall and disintegration 'of the
party itself. Party lines were c!losely
drawn, he said.
The releasing of 500 state convicts: by
Tennessee miners will doubtless lead to
grave results. It is true the miners. are.
laboring under deep conviction of wrong
against them by replacing their labor
with that of the cohvicts; but as long as
the law of that state authorizes thel leas
ing of criminals to contractors Gov.: Bu
chanan is bound to see it enforced. . The
letting loose of a small army of criiinals
upon the law-abiding, defenceless people
of Tennessee is a very serious matter and
may, precipitate conflicts between the
miners and state authorities which can
end only in bloodshed. The situation is
a very grave one in Tennessee.
The only Shelby Eli Dillard, editor of
the RED LODGE PICKET, is a guest in the
city to tarry a few days. He is the one
original scribe that does the editorial act
in a style distinctive and pecular to him
self, with never an imitation of others of
the gang. He has disposed of his pro
prietory interest in the PICKET, but it; is
hoped he may remain at the helm and
direct its course in the masterly manner
that has characterized the paper in the
years past. It will be a republican jour
nal under the new auspices, and will find
many staunch friends in the political
field of Montana.-Helena Herald.
