PARTY HLINDNK.SS- Just what the democratic party thinks of itself in the futile tiKht it is making to locate itself upon a vital issue may not be easily ascertained—i iiot till the votes are counted. Yet how an independent newspaper that has .-hitherto been democratic regards its jantics is quite as important. The Sioux City Tribune recently received from a subscriber a complaint that in supporting expansion it is depriving' the democratic party of an opportunity to escape from the IS to 1 i.-suei /'The Tribune, in reply, while disclaiming to be an organ of that party, marvels that there is not actively identilied with the management of the democratic party today a single man with capacity enough t« see that no foundation for the fmure can be laid by a policy of mere opposition to the course of the 'administration bearing the respon sibilities forced upon it by the demo crats themselves in their eagerness foi "war with Spain. "The present leader s-ship of the democracy." says the Trih' tine.v J'is still deciarinff'./^ffiir cheap' '•money, bidding for the support of riot crs as against the forces of law and order, and making republican oflice holders and republican worshipers jolly every day by fishing around for Dewey or some other war hero to lead them in a. campaign predicated upon hostility to the war. How could a war hero be silly enough to lend himself to such management, to such incongruity? The thought of it would make a Gorgon smile. To a sane man the democratic party seems to have loaned its thinker to -Mr. Bryan and to be working him so hard that he has no time to use a thinker." This opinion .of party blindness and lack of forethought is pretty clcse to •the average republican view of demo ciatic blundering. An organized, or ramer a disorganized, band of kickers, against all practical policies in sight has little hnpe ol' anything but ov.-r -whelming defeat. THE MARYLAND OONTKPT -"•Th* state election in Maryland this year is regarded 'if national political1 important and' it m.iv involve a change of state administration. i'lVe contest is .probably the closest in the history of. the state .both republican and democratic. le-adci® engaging in a strenuous effort to win success. Lead ing men in Baltimore believe the result in Maryland, as vveli as in Kentucky, will have its effect upon West Virginia, North Carolina and other southern states in the presidential election. For many years Maryland was in the democratic column, but it is now re garded as a doulnfu! state. The inde pendent voters in th&iuty of Baltimore' hold the balance of power. The greater proportion of them wen democrats, but they grew der Senator GorrnariV six or seven thousand helped tc el ct tie first republican gov ernor in tnirty years. The election of two republican United Stales senators —Wellington and McComas—followed. A local reviewer states that, spoiled by success-, several of the republican lead ers became too ambitious and factions divided the party in Baltimore city. Congress Mclntire was defeated for re election in the Fourth district last fall. The loss of two congressmen, the First district going democratic as well as the straightout restive un i=in. Their otes in 1S95j Fourth, was not sufficient warnin independents voted with the regular democrats in the municipal election last May, and turned the city over to that party again after four years of re publican control. The two candidates for governor are Lloyd Lowndes, republican incumbent, and Col. John Walter Smith, democrat. Governor Lowndes" excellent adminis tration. is counted upon to bring about his re-election. His able management of atate affairs has been Btrongly en dorMd even by the leading democratic newspapers of the state. A little bitterness developed in the republican lanks a short time since. When a month ago Senator Wellington attacked Governor Lowndes in a meet ing of the republican state committee and resigned the chairmanship. Gen. Thomas J. Shryock, the state treasurer, chosen his successor. Gen. Bbry- ock is one of the most popular men in the state. With the assistance of Sena tor McComas and other state and city leaders he has restored harmony in the party. At present every republican of note In the state is working for the suc cess of the ticket except Senator Wel lington. Next to the contest for governor in terest centers in the fight for the con trol of the senate. Senator Gorman has a deep personal interest in the state senators to be elected this fall, as they will hold over to the general assembly in 1902, when Wellington's successor will be chosen. It will be easier for the democrats to get control of the lower house than of the senate. The repub licans have an advantage In the fight. They enter It with eight hold-overs. The democrats, on the other hand, have only four hold-overs. Fourteen senators are to be elected. It is alleged by the democrats and de nied by the republicans that a vacancy exists in Talbot county, because of Senator Dodson's connection with the internal revenue service. Democrats have made a nomination in the county, while the republicans have declined to do so, and the question whether the name of the democratic nominee shall go on the official ballot has been re ferred to the courts. The court of ap peals declares it has no jurisdiction. It seems likely that the dispute will have to be settled by the next senate. The democrats must elect ten sena tors to secure a majority, while the re publicans have to elect elect only live. The chances for the control of the sen ate are decidedly in favor of the repub licans. The republicans are making their fight on national as well as state issues, but the democrats, acting under in stitutions from Senator Gorman, deal very cautiously with national ques tions, for fear of stirring up differences between the gold and the silver demo crats. THE DEWEY HOME. A Washington correspondent states that since the committee decided to purchase the Fitch house on Rhode Island avenue, Admiral Dewey has been anxious to move into it and go to housekeeping at once. He spent some time Saturday afternoon after the ar rangements were made to buy the place going over the building with some of his friends and pointing out to them what he was going to do after he moved in.. "I want to move on Tuesday or Wednesday, anyhow," said the admiral. He thinks that as soon as he gets "home," as he* expresses it, he will begin to feci strong and well again. So the. committee is working to get the house ready for the admiral to move in tomorrow or next day. The committee adds: Some people say that the location of the new house is not altogether an agreeable fine for a man in the admir al's condition, for it is within two doors of St. Matthew's church, which is the largest Roman Catholic church in Washington and the ringing of the church bells will prove annoying to him. Yesterday one of his friends re marked that the admiral would see nothing but funerals from his front Windows. The admiral laughed at this suggestion, and said that he would sleep late and not get up until after mass time, and then the funerals would be over. At any rate the house selected is the one the admiral had in mind when he described to the committee the kind of residence he wanted, and although he had the choice of some sixty houses, he clung to his first selection despite the proximity of the church. Tlie. Fitch house as the Dewey home has been known in Washington, was built a dozen years ago by Mr. Fitch, who has lived in it up to last year. It is practically on the corner of Rhode Island and Connecticut avenues, and has What Admiral Dewey especially wanted, a large dining room. In fact, the entire first lloor can be turned into a dining room if the admiral so desires it at any time, for that floor is divided up into a large hall and three large roonis running the length of the house. The first room is a parlor and is separ ated from the second, or music room, by portieres. The dining room is the last room back, and opens into the middle room by means of folding doors. Thus, the. admiral can use one. two or three rooms to entertain his guests at dinner, as he desires. The. second floor has a large bed room in front for the admir al's own use, with bath and dressing room off it. and back is the library, done in dark wood, but having plenty of light from windows opening on a large yard. Tin* third and last floor is di vided into bedrooms, each with bath. The kitchen, pantries, etc.. are in the basement. The house is furnished and ready for occupancy. Although the committee in charge of the fund paid $50,000 for the house as it stands, there is still a small amount left with which to purchase a few things necessary to complete the fur I nishing. A number of things have been offered the committee as contributions to the fund among, them being about twenty pianos from various manufac turers, but the committee has declined ail except the offer of one Boston firm to build a piano especially for the. The Dewey home. A firm has also offered, and the gift has been accepted, to sup ply a complete set of china for tne china, closet. Other gifts are expected this week, now that tiie house has been bought, and although the new home is furnished it is expected that the ad miral will have to send some of the old things to the auction rooms to make room for new ones. Already one auc tioneer has put in a bid for the old furniture, and if he gets it he expects to sell the Dewey relics at big prices. IOWA PRESS COMMENT. The Keokuk Gate City thinks "It is clear that democratic papers care noth ing about trusts par se. They merely want to use them as a device for war upon the protective tariff. They meant to set the trusts as a trap to catch re publicans for free trade purposes." The Ottumwa Press things there will be a heavy White frost on the night of Nov. 7. "The only way to keep from getting a job these days is to keep tramping away from it," suggests the Council Bluffs Nonpareil. The Clinton Herald says: "There are close upon 300,000 republican voters in the state of Iowa. In 1896 McKinley re ceived in round numbers 283,000- votes and it is safe to say that the full poll of the republican vote of the state was not reached at that time. This is said to be an 'off year,' but as long as the democrats make their principal argu ments along the line of assaults upon the administration of President McKin ley there should be no 'off year' in as loyal a state as Iowa." "Bryan says that the foreign born citizens in Iowa are going to vote against our soldiers, but they don't talk that way in this part of the coun try," says the Iowa City Republican. In publishing a long list of Iowa farm sales the Davenport Democrat re marks: "The appreciation in the value of farm property in Iowa, and in every part of the state, is to be noted. Dur ing the past two years the figures have been increased probably more than in any other two years." The Ottumwa Courier remarks that "This is discouraging weather for the clothier who has packed away his linen dusters and is displaying 'the finest line of overcoats ever brought to the city.' The Albia Union reports that "A man who is receiving aid from the county was seen to purchase three apples, and he paid 10 cents for them. None but the favored can enjoy the luxuries of life." The Nevada Journal notices that "Public sentiment against allowing a polygamlst to serve in congress is con stantly getting stronger." Speaking of the Mitchellville row, the Waterloo lieporter declares that "Girls old enough to plan and lead such dis turbances, to resist and engage in fist fights with the sheriff, should be in the penitentiary. Severe punishment is sometimes more potent in reformation than attempted official kindness.": TOPICS OF THE TIMES I 1 'I' Times are pretty easy when a man car. afford to pay $2,000 for a cow, as was the case in Kansas City, where a blooded Hereford was sold. The bid ding for it was spirited, and Marshall Field dropped out after offering John Sparks, of Reno, New, secured it. Tut! tut! tut! Now the National W. C. T. U. has joined the "consent of the governed" crowd, the other "aunties." This is possibly the result of dwelling long on "Whereas, taxation without representation is tyranny," etc. Just imagine the harmonious relations that may exist between the temperance union and the Iowa democracy! O, sis ters, we are sorry for you! The Winnipeg troops started for South Africa amid tremendous popular enthusiasm. .. ... Hard coal dealers of Chicago say there is little doubt there will be an other advance of 25 cents a ton on chestnut, beginning the first of next month, bringing the retail price up in that city to $7. This would mean an ad vance all along the llnr west of that point. "Receipts of anthracite by lake in Chicago since tne opening of naviga tion up to Oct. 15 have been about 900, 000 tons," said a leading coal merchant Tuesday. "This is somewhat in excess of the lake business last year. The rail roads have delivered us iiOO.OOO tons dur ing that time, which is also an ineraese. But in the spring of 1897 there were on the docks here 250,000 tons of anthracite, whereas the docks last spring were bare. We have paid from 50 to 75 cents a ton more freight this year than last, to 1 Gen. Joe Wheeler writes from Manila that the withdrawal of the American troops from the Philippines now would be criminal. As the Bryanites claim that it is criminal to proceed in the contest, an intelligent public will judge, with a witness on the ground, that his testimony is more trustworthy. The Minneapolis Tribune judges that Iowa is safe for anywhere from 25,000 to 50,000 republica'n majority this year. Party workers here are placing it at at least 50,000. Englishmen and Americans who have sons in the battle-line may get what comfort they can from statistics showing that there is only one chance in a thousand that a soldier will be killed in battle, and that, on the aver age, a ton of ammunition is expended for every man shot. In the Crimean war, for example, a total of nearly 95, 000.000 shots were fired, with a result ing loss of life amounting to less than lOU.OOO, or ono soldier killed to every 1,087 shots fired. During the late civil war in this country it took twenty-two hundred weight of ammunition, on the average, to kill a man. Further statis tics show that of the wounds received in battle 45 per cent occur in the legs, :!3 per cent in the chest, and only 1 per cent in the head. It is disease and not bullets that creates the greatest har vest of death. A big $10,000,000 lead and zinc trust or combination has been formed in Missouri. The concern will operate and develop tlr Joplin-Galena district, which now produces about seven eighths of the zinc ore of the United States and about one-fourth of the world's supply. When it is remembered that this limited field, covering a space of only twenty by sixty miles, will this year produce $16,000,000 worth of ore, it will readily be seen that great possibilities exist. AVhen one hears so much ranting about the "consent of the governed" as applied1 to the Philippine situation he wonder9 whether these same objectors F.& ./ ""4f growing Ttorsateg, ©tixrter 26, would have cried! out against our en forcing ^our protectorate upon the Cu bans even at the point of arms had they refused us the privilege of gov erning their land until such time as we got ready to leave. Most men believe that the*sober sense of the country would have sanctioned our government exercising sovereignty over that island for a time at least whether the gov erned gave their consent or not and to them the situation in 'the Philippines is no different except that in the one case the governed had sense enough to con sent and in the other they did not. Fur prices are reaching the top shelf, having advanced from 20 to 70 per cent, as a result of the scarcity of seal and sable, and they will be higher next year. It is evident that the owners of such wraps will soon be numbered among the "exclusives." An anonymous contributor from La Moille addresses a comunication to this paper raising the question of the rights of Individuals to service at public hos telries. He wunts to know whether a hotel keeper can refuse accommodation to a respectable person who is willing and able to pay the customary charges. This point has been tested in the courts and it has been decided that a public house or store must serve all alike. There are, however, conditions under which discrimination can be made, al though the color of a man's skin is not one of them. Uncle Snm now has a balance in the treasury of more than $290,000,000, and of this vast amount $254,000,000 is gold, or $154,000,000 more than is required for the gold reserve. When the silverites declaim against goldbugs they ought in deference to Uncle Sam's feelings to get out of his domain while they in dulge in such talk. ~'v As reported by the Baltimore Ameri can.

Many readers of the dally papers must have noticed that during Dewey's reception in New York a man by the name of Croker was very much in evi denee. The boss of Tammany was one of the committee to welcome the. hon ored guest of the nation. He was In a carriage in tho procession that did not find room for the Grand Army of the Republic. In fact it may be said ne rep resented New York city full as much as Governor Roosevelt did New York state. What follows will be on the as sumption that on such an occasion, as notable a one as ever occurred of the kind, the representative men of the largest city of these United States were powerless to prevent the prominent presence of Tammany's chief. That in the make-up of committees and ar rangements neessary, there was no es cape from the necessity of having Boss Croker represent New York. And after all that is said, does he not represent that city? Have not the vot ers, the citizens by a big plurality said we prefer to continue the reign of Tam many? And the greatest of those is Croker. So sure is he of his position that only a few weeks ago he unblusb ingly admitted in substance before an investigating committee that not only was he a poor man a few years ago, had had no particular profession or businesi since, but was now in possession of much property, and presumably many dollars. Iri other words, as a political boss lie has become a rich man. And this man Governor Roosevelt and Seth Low, as well as many prominent decent democrats, were forced by the etiquette of the occasion to associate with, for the time being to recognize "as one ot our foremost citizens." It is stated that on one occasion, where George William Curtis was present, an officious gentle man. introduced to him Wrllliam K. Fox of the Police Gazette, as "a fellow jour nalist." Admiral Dewey met Croker as he did Seth Low, as "a prominent cltl zen. No wonder our pessimistic friends grow in sorrow and sadness when the notice the continued reign of the politi cal boss in these United States. No amount of publicity seems to affect the position of Croker or Piatt. Quay has not been turned down by the republi cans of Pennsylvania. A temportary de feat, a repulse is all that Quay has felt Tanner in Illinois represents full much political dishonesty as Altgeld docs of democratic corruption. Dishon ors are equally divided between the tw great political parties. The truth is, the people will not distinguish betwee the political leader, a necessity, and the political boss, a disgrace will not con demn the methods of the boss', Imply ing thus that they go with leadership as a necessary adjunct. The mass of the republican party do not acknowledge anything out of the way with Platllam in New York city. If Roosevelt should become a political boss with all that the word implies the people of New Yor state would hardly notice it. And so, after all, the people themselves are in fault. Croker really belonged In his place when New York welcomed Dew ey.
