McKinley waa defeated,
Cannon's in the tureen;
Burrows’ name is Dennis,
And the quorum is not ‘seen.’
The Senate is safe.
It was no olf y ar in Pro we r -
county.
Our Platform—We’ll have to
get together.
The Republicans still hold th<
post orticus. Ilurrah!
Ingalls is defeated and Dan Vor
hees is the happiest man in the
United States.
Teller and Townsend are all
right. The landslide could have
l>een much worse.
The Republican parry wants to
postpone further election reports,
till some other year.
A general business panic struck
the country immediately after the
big Democratic victory.
The g. o. p. is climbing out of
the tureen with a “get together”
expression on her countenance.
We are awaiting with anxiety
the returns from Alaska. It was
a cold day up there, and we are in
hope.? the Democracy got left.
The Democrats have got the
lower House of Congress. The
question now agitating their minds
is what are they going to do with it ?
All Europe is ablaze with cele
brations of the victory obtained by
their Democratic allies. llow will
our Democrat friends explain this?
The Republican party wasabont
1,000,000 votes short of a quorum
on election day. Even Tommy
Reed was unable to figure one out.
We publish in another column
the official vote of Prowers county.
It shows that the g. o. p. is right j
side up in this neck of the woods.
Fourth-class Democratic post
mast are still dropping out with
frightful regularity. Here’s where
we get consolation in the hour of
defeat.
Where are the Prowers county
mugwumps? —Some are already on
the road to Texas, and the rest will
be as soon as they clamber out of
the soup.
The Otero county Republicans
after all their blow only gave Allen
22 majority. Prowers county’s 86
is what did the work. Allen is all
right, but his county is no good.
There was a big Speaker calk'd Roed,
«Vhc u> quorums would never pay heed;
The people made a ct.ll
For hiu gavel and gall,
Aud their quorum'll knock out Mr. Reed.
The Denver Time? an 1 Republi
can each claim that the other is re
sponsible for the big Republican
loss in Denver. The party holds
them both responsible.
We move that at the winter ses
sion of Congress Tom Reed should
let the South alone, and devote
himself to passing a bill compelling
the North to go Republican.
Speaker Eddy has been re-elected
to the legislature. We hope the
House of Representatives will aga'n
elect him to the Speakership, the
position he so ably tilled before.
Teaman didn’t get the job of
holding down the State house
cli i s Some* straight Republican
nigger will till that honorable po
rtion much more efficiently titan
lie would have.
Leadville tried to defeat Routt
because he never bought any lots
in their little hamlet. In this he
showed great business ability and
demonstrated his fitness for the po
sition he will adorn.
Congressman Henderson, of
lowa, one of the Republican lead
ers in the House, had a close shave
but pulled through. He will have
I ar 1 work, however, finding any
hiiig to lead in the next House.
Our friend across the track had
a bad case of bile last week. We
had hoped that when the election
was over they would occasionally
tell the truth. It is hard to make a
dog ashamed of its puke or a Dem
ocratic newspaper of its lies.
The census showed 2,000,000
less people than were supposed to
be in country, and the election
about 2,000,000 too many Demo
crats. So we suppose it will even
up the accounts and stop the ever
lasting howl about the census.
Carlton was the only precinct in
this count}' which made a gain
over last year in the number of
votes cast. The gain was Repub
lican too, and reflects much credit
on the enterprise and intelligence
of that flourishing community.
«J, F. Willits for U. S. Senator,*’
is the word from Kansas. As our
business men look over their old
accounts and notes against that

considered a disgrace in that great

“We bare met the enemy end ere ere
■ theirs” for the time being. To cerefol
| observers who here watched the politieel
c iava<«es throughout the country, the
general result of the elections was not e
surprise, but in view of the extent end
character of the Democratic victory the
Republican defeat is not sufficiently ac
counted for: As far as the victory in
Pennsylvania was concerned, it was due
more to the defection of the anti-Quay
Republicans than the strong organiza
o? th- Democratic party. The defeat cl
the Republicans in Massachusetts and
New Hampshire was undoubtedly due in
part to the passage of the tariff bill. The
fact that the new tariff went into opera
tion just before the election, in time for
the voter to note tho rise of prices in cer
tain articles, but not in time for a test of
its general effect, operated against the
Republicans. In the Northwest the Re
publicans were affected by the tariff and
other causes. The Farmer’s Allianoe for
the first time appeared as a formidable
factor in the political struggle, and al
though the Alliance represented a wide
ly prevalent spirit of unrest and discon
tent, yet it manifested its power in Illi
nois, Nebraska and Kansas, and to some
extent in lowa and various other States.
Even in Republican Minnesota the
strength of the Alliance was clearly ex
hibited. The peculiarity of this year’s
campaign over any that has preceded it,
was, that the elements of disaffection and
defection in the West and Northwest
assumed an unwonted strength that pus
zled the politicians. In spite however,
of the Republican reverses, there are
hopoful considerations. The presidential
election is but two years off, and the con
ditions of that contest are altogether dif
ferent from those of the one just waged,
with the chanoea more in favor of the
Republicans. If they had carried the
Fifty-second Congress they might have
lost the Fifty-third and the Presidential
election. Democratic victory now is not
a prognostication of Democratic victory
in 92. Between the assembling of the
new Congress and that election the vic
tor may become the vanquished, the con
quered the conqueror, and this will un
doubtedly occur unless the Democratic
majority in Congress is more ably led
than it ever has been in the past. Every
thing depends upon the oourae of events
in and out of Congress during the leat
two years of the preeent administration,
and upon the record made by each party
in the various departments of the Gov
ernment which it will control. The loss
of their scanty majority in the House
will be a gain to the Republicans as it is
a preparation for a Republican victory
two years hence, for as a prominent of
ficial puts it, “the Democrats will make
such a botch of governing that the peo
ple will be glad to retire them.”
That McKinley was defeat in a district
of which the ordinary Democratic major
ity is not less than 2,000 was not surpris
ing, as such a result was to be expected
in the natural order of events.
There were were obstacles which no
amount of personal popularity, no sagac
ity of leadership, no energy or ingenuity
of campaign methods could overcome.
Holmes county with its unterrified and
unconvertible Democracy stands promi
nently out upon the canvass in illustra
tion of this fact.
It is admitted on all hands that BCoKla
ley succeeded in wresting from the peo
ple of his distriot an indorsement which
while falling a little short of victory can
not be otherwise than gratifying to him
self and friends, and to the still loyal
supportsrss of tho cause which he repre
sents.
Although assisted in the canvass from
outside sources, and although they may
have contributed to the augmentation of
his vote, yet the same considerations op
erated to intensify the opposition of the
Democracy. Under these conditions
McKinley displayed to the greatest ad
vantage the strength of his resources,
and qualities that even in a lost cause
will command general admiration.
There will probably be no more legis
lation as to the tariff between now and
1892, and the McKinley hill will before
then have vindicated itself. The differ
ences existing among the leading Repub
licans in all parte of the country will be
settled before two years have passed and
out of the present politioal chaos will re
sult the securing of the Presidency.
From reliable authority we learn that
the President will not call an extra ses
sion of Congress. The first of December
oornes on Monday, and there will be e
regular session meet on that day. There
is no urgenoy demanding an extra ses
sion wo learn from the same authority,
and the reasons which were potent a
month ago do not hold now. Not quite
four weeks remain before the regular ses
sion begins and members of Congress
from the distant States could hardly ar
rive in time for a session if one were
called.
The Spark a this week makes a violent
and dirty attack on Jno. W. Golladay and
H. A. Billow. This is only additional
proof that those gentlemen are honorable
citizens and loyal Republioans; were they
other than that the Spar ha would have
nothing but words of praise for them.
What makes it more oontemptible is that
they knew Cap. Billow had nothing what
ever to do with the affair to which they
took exception. The Captain ean well
feel proud of the opposition of that sheet.
The Sparka started the campaign out on
e dirty platform and when it was rubbed
into them they squealed. They wQI not
be so reedy to throw mud hereafter.
