Cleveland will carry New York. It
is probable that he will carry Indiana
and certain that Connecticut or New
Jersey or both will support him. It
looks as though Cleveland would be
our next president.
The Merchants' parade for Cleve
land and Hendricks in New York on
Saturday was three miles long and
25.000 business men were in line. It
was an imposing parade.
It is authoritatively stated that
Ro8Coe Conkling is openly in favor of
Cleveland, and Hendricks.
It is rumored that Blaine will be
kept at work in Indiana and that the
republicans have practically abandoned
Gen. Parsons, of Maryland, chair
man of the Butler party in that state,
states that Ben Butler's chairman and
secretary have received an aggregate
of $25.500 from B. F. Jones, chairman
of the republican committee.- He de
fies either Butler or Blaine to deny
their allegations or the truth of his
theory that Butler and Blaine are in
Wisconsin will poll a bigger demo
cratic vote than ever in its history.
The increase in thé October vote of
Ohio over that of four years ago was
66,000. The democrats cast 30,000
votes more than they cast for Hancock
while the republicans, in spite of
Blaine, Dudley and Corruption, cast
only 16.000 more than they cast for
Garfield. In other words, nearly two
thirds of the new vote since 1880 went

A Washington telegram of the 27th
says: Gov. Schuyler Crosby of Mon
tana is a candidate for appointeront as
first assistant postmaster general, but.
of course, the position would hardly
be worth his taking if the republican«
lose control of the government. Mr.
Marr, the venerable chief clerk in
the first assistant's office, has been
designated as acting first assistant for
another ten days. This period will
expire on election day. Gov. Crosby
will then have tolerated accurate in
formation to enable him to decide
whether he wants to succeed Mr.
Hatton. His term as governor has
nearly two years to run, but his salary
is only $2.600.
If John Schuyler should get that
office there would be a feeling of re
lief in the minds of the people of
Montana. As a governor he has
not been a glittering suc
cess. The people of Montana do not
takes kindly to an appointed executive
who, beside exercising ail the airs of
an autocratic potentate is also a petty
politician who inserts his nasal append
age alike into the precinct caucus or
the territorial convention. And then
he deserves a wider sphere of useful
ness—a place where his political train
ing will be of more service and will
receive higher appreciation than in
Montana. Of course he has got to
have an office; lie is one of the pro
fession of office holders that has grown
up under republican administration
and he must be kept in position.
