The demoralization aud despair which they had looked for among their opponents they now see r-ave failed to appear, but, on the contrary, well .iHiiiied manifestations of hopefulues aud eoutideuce have developed in their stead. No reasonable Democrat bow counts on a walk-over for hi party next year, while the thiuking members of the organizatou are becoming more and more convinced mat a ciosc sau exciting atruggle is before them, with tbe result involved iu a much doubt a appeared on the eve of tbe electiou of ls8. Tbi is not a very agreeable eouditiou of things for the Democrat', aud it 1 decidedly different from what they expected a tew mouths ago, but it is all that they cau see in tbe situatiou at the preseut stage. Tbe reason for tbe change in tbe political conditions are not difficult to usme. Tbe McKiuley tariff act ba proven, ou tbe whole, more sat istactory to the couutry than many Republicans, especially in the West, anticipated, while some of its provisions have achieved a decided popularity with the people. This is true of the reci procity and sugar sections of the law. In some particular! the law falls short of what Republican teutimeut ia tbe West demauded, aud what tbe Repub licans of this section desires uow, but tbe latter cheerfully concede that the measure has brought about noue of the economic ills which tbey looked tor. Theu, too, the Administration, in its domestic aud foreign policy, ha acquitted itself creditably. Tbe couu try is fairly prosperous at borne, and it bat gained a respect abroad such as it has not previously enjoyed in any stage of Its career. All tbe members of tho Administration are working in harmony witb each other, its policy ou tbe chief issues of the day is popular, and the party Is steadily getting into better aud bettor shape for waging a successful canvass uext year. No in telligent aud observant Itepublican is able to discern anything alarming lu the outlook for l(J9a. Ulobo-Dem- ocrat. The above from tho Globe-Denio- crnt is timely. It should be road by every Democrat lu the laud. Another Surprise Or a Newspaper Lie. New York, April 29. Gov. Hill has auotlier surprise for Ihe politicians. He is said to have revealed to the Tammany leaders a program which is iutended to laud him lu the White House, or at least do much to expedite hit claims to recognition as an availa ble candidate. First of all, ho will not change his present potitiou regarding the Sena lorslilp. IU will ueither accept nor docliue. Nor will he dctermlue what to do with this office uutll after the electiou of noxt November. Noxt, bo has made up bis mind that the emergency compels him again to be a caudidate for Governor, aud it is now his inlcutiou to force the party to uomiuate him for a third term. If be is elected he will at ouce summon a special session of the present Legis lature aud send a message to It declin ing to accept the office of Senator, aud will ask the Legislature to. elect some ouo lu his place. If be Is not elect od Governor he will theu accent the Sen atorshlp and rcslgu the Governorship, so tbat ho may take his seat iu the Seuale ou the first Mouday iu Deccm- oer next. This program means that the Gov. cruor bus ddlultoly decided to bo I candidato for the Presidential nomliia lloo. Jt must be accepted by hi nartv as such announcement, and ho so in tends It. Gov. Hill boliovcs that after tho approaching Presidential election me party will turn uo longer to New lork Mate for ita candidate. The mniiltest nlllauco of Western and Southern Democrats will by 1896 make it impossible Tor auy Democrat who lives east of the Allcghoiilcs to receive tin) nomination, lu the Govoruor's opinion. It Is. therefore, now or iievr wiin nun. no bcllovcs that If ho can bu elected Governor ot New York uext tall, ami by a sufficient majority to ludicnlv bis strength, that this Hiiglo circumstance will outweigh any consideration the conveutlou may have lor auotber candidate. It will domou hi rate mat mil ia invincible iu New lorn state, and will therefore, in his opinion, make him the most available candidate. 1. M. i'. A, Executive Commute.
