In tbe November number of the
North American is a contribution from
U. S. Senator Vest uuder the caption
of -Th Hopes of the Democratic Par
ty Recognizing that such hopes are
decidedly nebulous, we did not expect
much ; and on reading the article were
not disappointed. The Democrat in
deed who purchased the said magazine
for hope' sake and closes perusal of
the Senator's article feeling that he has
got his ntouey back, U easily inflated.
Tbe worst of it is that Senator Vest
made the most out of I he subject, that
it is capable of yielding, lie was
working worn out soil and the result
was Naturally meagre. Still such as it
is we will give our readers tbe benefit
of it. After some pages of general
ities, of causes and conditions, he
materialize his hopes aud distributes
ifs as follows:
iu the last Presidential election
ilarrlsen received '133 electoial votes
and Cleveland 168, making the former's
majority 65, although of the popular
vote Cleveland received s majority of
94.431. Of the electoral vote for
Harrison. New York cast 36 and Indi
ana 15. tusking together 61, which
number added to that of Cleveland
would have given Harrison 182 and
Cleveland 219, or a majority of 37.

showing that a change of 8,361 votes
from the Republican to the Democrat

We append to tbe above tbe "Repub
lican hopes," as slated by the N. Y.
Tribune. It will be noted that this
authority introduce an element Into
the calculation which Senator Vest
overlooked, to-wit : the apportionment
under the census of 1890 :
In the light of recent election Dem
ocrat bave already begun to array
electoral vote of States, proving that
their party canuot wiu without the
vote of New lork. They neglect to
mention the fact which (how that the
Republican can. It l a very old story
that the Solid South has uo chance of
controlling the Government except by
means of the essentially foreign influ
ence and population concentrated with-
in ten miles of City Hsll. That argu
ment nominated McClellan at tho de
mand of New York in 1864, and Sey
mour In 1888, and Greeley in 1872, and
Tilden in 1876, and Hancock, actually
resident here though nominally from
Pennsylvania, in 1880, and Cleveland
ia 1884 aud 1888. For about twenty-
five years the Democratic party baa
been playing on that (ingle string, aud
I ioni. of the tiart v are irAttinir tired.
Ali the Democratic reasoning goes
. .. . ' "
upon tbe basis tbat a new apportion
ment in season for the text Presldontal
election is improbable. On tho con
trary, the Republicans In Congress will
richly deserve defeat if they fail to
make the apportionment required by
lhe census of 1890 before the close
the session in the Winter of 1890-'9L
mey nave tne necessary votes in toe
House already, and will have a still
larger majority when seats now fraud
ulently occupied by candidates of the
shotgun are restored to men for whom
a majority of the people voted. It is
conceded, of course, that auy party
may throw away its opportunities aud
commit political suicide. But tbe Re
publican party has not been accused,
even by its worst opponents, of politi
cal folly, aud it would be the worst
conceivable folly to flefor apportion
ment, with the certainty that a new
assignment of votes according to pop
ulation would give the Republicans a
considerable gain, on account ef the
rapid growth of the Northwestern
I
States. But on the basis of the present
apportionment the electoral votes In

Mr. Ellison's usual Annual Review
of the Cotton Trade has been issued ia
Liverpool this week, and, as in previ
ous years, we have obtained by cable
all the results of importance contained
therein, and present them below. The
consumption by European spinners in
actual bales of 400 lbs. weight during
the season of 1888-9 compare with
the figures for the two preceding years
ss follows :

(STOCK OCT. 1ST.)
181,000. 167,000. 167,000.
To obtain a comprehensive idea of
the amount of cotton consumed la the
world we must go a step farther, aud
include the United States and India.
We showed In our Annual Crop Re
port that the mills In this country have
increased their use of cotton each year
sine 1884-85, and la the last seasoa
their consumption reached 2,685,000
bales of 400 lbs. average weight. The
annual report of the Bombay Mlllown-
era Association furnishes evidence f
the marvelous growth of the cotton
manufacturing industry In India. It
shows, first, that on June 30, 1889, the
number of mills working and Iu course
of construction was 124, gain of 10
during the vear.and that SDiudloa had
increased 973.347 and looms 2.06.V

only check to expansion bolng from

the world will require in 1889-90 from
all sources 9,996,000 bales of tbe aver
age weight of 463 pounds, making IV
088,000 bales of 400 lbs. each. And on
this basis an American crop of 7,886,

needed. His estimate or the amount
required from each source of supply is
as follows :
From America 7,880.000 bales.

readers, 'there are some suggestive

In spinners' orders in the past year

in the United States; tbe transfer of
