With the election over there are some offices still in doubt, but enough is known to prove that tho Republican party was in bet tor shape, and made a much more ef fective campaign, than it did two years ago. It has selected a supreme court judg*-. the state superintendent of schools. » regent of the state univer sity. and it stands an even chance of securing the uttorne> general; the railroad commissioner, and the con gressman-at-large in the official count. The party gained six on joint I ballot in ’.he assembly, gained one dis trict Judge in the state, and whereas, during the last two years, the Dem ocrats have had official control of forty-nine out of the sixty counties, the Republicans during the next two years will have complete official con trol of twenty-four counties, and one half of the offices In eight more. To be sure. It was not a victory, i The Democrats elected the governor, and most of the other principal of fices were secured by their candi date*. but. In the face of the general national Democratic landslide, and tn the face of the unexpected race made by Bhafroth and Kenehan. then far all the other Republican candidates to gat below the five thousand mAJ% and for force of them to tet In tha “official count" daas. and three to be elected, there is nothing oVef which I J.

The* Republicans entered the race handicapped by the national unrest. Democracy had the state. Judicial, congressional, legislative and nearly all the county positions. It also had the support of the allied corporate in terests of the state, together with the financial as well as the active support or the whiskey interests. The latter wanted to administer a rebuke to the Republican party for the present local option law. and the prediction ts al ready made that the next legislature 1 will attempt to rbpeal it the same aa did the last legislature.. The Republican party was united, save for the deflection from its ranks caused by the Cltlsens’ movement in Denver.
