NOVEMBER 21, THE ADVOCATE AND NEWS. Public Opinion. Atlanta Constitution: Alas! Editor Godkln will have to begin the burial of llver all over again. Hartford Courant: There Is nothing the matter with the Republican party except the Platta and Quays, their small fry Imitators, the preachers of cowardly politics, and the practices of dirty poli tics. Once well rid of these, the party wold renew its youth like an eagle. St. Paul Globe: The circumstances of ' the election are such as to make New York State unquestionably Democratic for many years to come. The Repub licans who supported Seth Low may be counted upon hereafter, In any general election, to vote and work for the Dem i ocratic ticket. Atlanta Journal: It is a sad omen of the times and a very bad omen for the future of Journalism that the pen of a man who can produce a spicy lie la often In readier demand and his reward in cash is larger than that of the journalists who have even more ability and un speakably more honor. . Louisville Post: When the Democrats in 189(5 asuumed responsibility for the sins of Popullura, as well as for some of their own, it became, in the judgment of millions of thoughtful American vot ers, a dangerous party, and that opinion must be dissipated before we can win another national victory. Courier Journal: As ullver is pro duced by the Uroken Hill Proprietary Company's mines In New South Wales at a cost of less than 2.r cents an ounce, and as the great copper mines are turning It out for less, there Is no rwwon to expwt any permanent rally In the market. It is clearly a case of the law of supply and demand. Sioux City Journal: The people largely rely upon "bosses" to keep the political machine grinding, and from time to time, when the "bossen" got fresh and phow disposition to claim ownership of the machine the people rise up and emlte them, and there are new bosses, or more modest old ones, and the machine grinds away as aforetime. Indianapolis News: The National Sound Money League, at its semi-annual meeting yesterday, Issued a declaration !ut which it announced the well-known .truth that international bimetallism Is dead. We do not suppose that the state ment of the League will make the fact any truer than it would have been with out the statement. Chicago Tribune: The declwlou of the Supreme court In the case of the Trans Missouri Freight Association proved that the Interstate commerce act amounted to something. But this latter decision tends In a contrary direction. It whittles down and minimizes the force of the law and makes It nearly valueless as a remedy against the evils It was enacted to correct. Washington Times: By all odds the ' most important fact of the campaign In the State of New York is the indication that a Democratic Governor will be elected In 1898. This we may consider as a moral certainty. What Is Intensely interesting about the matter is that the fortunate Individual who shall reach the State executive mansion is much more than likely to appwr as a Presidential quantity In 1900. Danville Register: We agree with those who say there are but two parties in this country, the Democratic party and the Republican party. Each haa lately been more or less split up on the currency question. There were last year nearly as many free silver Republicans as there were gold standard Democrats. Each party will be reunited on some basis before 1900, and it will not be the currency question. That will probably not be an Issue In 1900. Chicago Times-Herald: The United States Supreme court haa taken the starch out of the Interstate Commerce Commission. The decision of the court In the case of the Interstate Commerce Commission against certain Southern railway companies which reduced rates to meet the water transportation com panies is not only a great victory for the railways, but Is significant of the fact that the highest tribunal In the land regards the law.as a very imperfect piece of legislation. " . Omaha Bee: Who, then, are the peo ple dissatisfied with "McKinleylsm and Dlngleylsm?" Are they the manufac turers who have been enabled to start up their mills and factories? Are they the Idle wage earners of a year ago who have found steady and remunerative work? Are they the agricultural pro ducers for whose products the home de mand has been materially increased? Are they even th Mjrreney roforniflm, whose importunate demand for a re vision of the currency the President did his best to comply with? Certainly none of these has any good reason to be dis satisfied with the administration or with Republican policy. There is some defec tlon undoubtedly, of spoils seekers, but this is not of very great Importance. Philadelphia Bulletin: The committee appointed by the Board of Education to investigate the recent shortages discov ered in the weight of coal supplied to the public schools have reported that 161 tons were missing, or not accounted for, in twenty-eight school houses. Should the same shortages prevail in the school houses which they did not visit and it Is probable that they do the city ha3 been deliberately robbed in Its coal con tract to the extent of not less than 1,000 tons. Pittsburg Times: The report of the bureau of building inspection for October shows that during that month there were more building permits Issued than for any preceding month since the estab lishment of the bureau. The estimated cost of the buildings also broke the rec ord. The number of new buildings for which permits were Issued last month was 170. and their estimated cost $1,177, f87. This was art Increase of sixty-one new buildings over October, 189G, and an Increase In cost of $572,109. Raleigh News and Obnerver: Some gold Democrats who were mistaken last year now see that, even if they did not wholly believe In free coinage at 16 to 1, the Democrat party offered the only hope of government upon correct principles. It Is a good sign that many of them have returned to their old home and helped to win splendid victories this year. -They have come back expressing by their action a willingness to abide by the wisdom of the party, and, coming back in that spirit, they will find a warm welcome from the great body of the party who were grieved at their action last year. Harper's Weekly: Our government H-nt to Europe a special commission composed of gentlemen who were to crystallize the bimetallic sentiment so abounding In England, France and Ger many, and to bring matters to a head. It 13 true the British government, In announcing to our commissioners the result, gave them the soothing assur ance that. If they had anything else to propose, they would be listened to with pleasure. But, as a matter of fact, the discussion is actually closed, and our commissioners return like a committee of the Pickwick Club coming home from a sentimental journey. Kansas City Star: In this world those persons thrive best who are deter mined to realize their desires and who hold their own comfort and enjoyment paramount to the convenience of other people. Selfish husbands are the Idols of doting wives, and wives who want every thing for themselves are usually lucky enough to get the kind of husbands whom they can bend to their purposes. Self abnegation is the sort of virtue which brings nothing but n moral re ward. Persons who are content with that kind of pay may practice it, but those who crave something more sub stantial will pursue a different policy. Globe-Democrat: The spectacle of a drunken policeman dragging a respecta ble and inoffensive woman along the streets is another instance of disgrace connected with the force in this city. Something is radically wrong with a de partment guilty of so many sins of omis sion and commission. An arrest of a woman with brutality is In keeping with the failure to arrest the highwaymen who have been asaultlng citizens. This is not the only recent case here of out rageous behavior on the part of police men to women. The fact that an Inno cent woman can be subject to such treat ment U shameful, and the punishment should fit the offense. New York Mail and Express: Some of our Central and South American cousins are at present enga ged in sotting the stage for those hilarious operas bouffe which they playfully call national elections. The reigning President of Costa Rica, for example, Igleslas, has the second term bee in his bonnet; and the candi date most menacing to the political hopes of Mr. Igleslas is former President Mora, who has great strength with the people. It is interesting to learn with how much delicacy the threatened exec utive has simplified the situation. . In stead of going to the vulgar expense of flooding Costa Rica with fiery campaign documents and keeping a brigade of or ators on the stump, he quietly removes Mr. Mora to a safe and salubrious spot beyond the confines of the republic, and will keep him there till the ballot boxes have rendered the proper verdict for Ig leslas.
