THURSDAY EVENNG, MAY 3, 1900 DEMOCRATIC POSSIBILITIES. The total vote of the electoral col lege is 447. and H requires 224 for the election of president and vice-president Before formulating their plat form and selecting their ticket, it would be wise for the derbcraiic lead ers to give careful attention to the table of the states. The solid south, Including Delaware, has 154 votes, and in order to elect their candidates the democrats must carry all of these and 70 votes in the north. These 70 votes have heretofore, until 1896, been looked for in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Indiana, which to gether have 67. Before the admis sion of states between the elections of 1S93 and 1897 this number was suffi cient. But now it la necessary to car ry still another state. The makers of the Chicago platform of 1896 deliberately abandoned all ex pectation of carrying New York, New Jersey or Connecticut, and hoped to make up for their loss by carrying states of the middle west, the Rocky mountains and the Pacific slope. In this they were disappointed, and not only this, but for tbe first time since the south threw off the carpet-bag gov ernments the solid south was broken. Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland and West Virginia, wltb an aggregate elec toral vote of 26, gave 25 of them to McKInley. Bryan's total vote was 176. Of this vote 130 came from the south ern states and the remainder from the Rocky mountains and "the slope." These states which went for Bryan were Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Mon tana, Nebraska, Nevada, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. All these Btates combined have an elector al vote of 45, or one less than New York and New Jersey. Besides carry ing these states, Bryan got one vote" in California and one In Kentucky, bring ing up bis total vote to 176, or 95 less than were cast for McKInley. Mr. Bryan lost 25 votes ot'the border south ern states, which had always been re garded as certain for any democratic . candidate. If the silver question Is to be press ed to the front, to the exclusion of the living Issues now before the peo ple, it may be at the expense of the vote of these border states, 26 in all, as well as the 52 votes of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. If the democrats carry this fall all the states they carried in 1896, 174 exclusive of the two odd votes, then 50 more votes must be found somewhere In order to succeed. Upon fhe straight silver is sue, the struggle for these, will be hard and doubtful. The great states of the Mississippi valley Ohio, Illinois and Indiana, have never been carried upon this issue. If, however, the silver question is not put first and foremost K over all others involved in the cam paign and a platform is adopted which pledges the party to uphold the con stitution, to oppose Imperialism, to put hooks in the noses of the leviathan trusts, then the party should carry the solid south and Delaware, with 154 votes, New York, New Jersey, Connect icut, Indiana and Illinois, 91 votes, or 21 more than a majority. In addition to this, there are other, states which might reasonably be re lied upon with such a platform and an aggressive campaign upon it The platform of a party cannot of itself de termine the Issues which will be con sidered in the campaign. The ques tions growing out of the Spanish war will be the issues this fall. The dem ocratic platform cannot change them. But it can drive enough voters out of the party to decide the result The opportunity of the time-honored demo cratic party is in sight That party has always claimed to be the party of the constitution. Its founder wrote the declaration of independence, and the principles of the declaration of independence are attacked by the Mc KInley administration. A great dem ocrat formulated the constitution, and the constitution is arrogantly limited or set aside. The question now is whether there is enough of wisdom and patriotism in the party to measure up to this great occasion and rescue the government from those who would Bap and mine the foundation upon which the great fabric rests. That is the question. THAT COURT DECISION. The decision of the Territorial su preme court against the board of edu cation In its suit against the county treasurer involving the disbursement of school moneys, is unfortunate, to say the least. The point at Issue was whether East Las Vegas, school dis trict No. 2, Is entitled to all the reve nue derived from gaming licenses, or whether the proceeds from such source should be paid into the general school fund and dlstribtrted among the out an avocation of more or less expense to the Immediate community in which the business Is carried out and now there are to be no resulting benefits to these centers of population. The decision weans only six or ' seven months ot public schools, instead of nine mouths at present. If the Saw in th s regard is lame, faulty, smbig- f t f k iUhi U k "I am the pastor of the Be; '.L-t Church at Port Jervis. IS.

SCHAEFER, uous, or what not, the next legislature should amend It, or enact another law bearing upon the matter. The next series of London wool sales will take place on Tuesday May 8th, when H is estimated that 175,000 bales will be offered. After Chicago and St Louis have had their Dewey celebrations, the ad miral's once admirable presidential boom will be in shape to Cold up and lay away in the historical closet The Sliver City, N. M., "IndepenJ ent," always neat, newsy and nice. Is perhaps a little more so than usual this week, the ladies of the Episcopal Guild down there having gotten out the issue with pains. When Daniel Webster was dying fctked that he might be burled at Marshfleld under some great pines that ne loved. A dying request to be bur ied in a shaded spot in some New Mex ico cemeteries would be entirely nuga tory, for there are not half trees enough to go around. The prospectus folder, conveying sn Idea of the plan and scope of the souve nir history of the g. o. p. by Marat Halstead, contains well executed pho tographs of President Lincoln's cabinet President McKInley, Chairman Mark Hanna and Secretary Charles Dick, of the national committee, and Chairman Perry S. Heath of the committee on ! organization and literature. The an nouncement is also made that barely a sufficient number of copies of the souvenir will be printed to supply the demand of actual subscribers and the leading libraries of the country. "El Capltan," the new paper a'. Cap Itan, Lincoln county, N. M., starts out with the publication of the delinquent tax list, a paying proposition, of course However, the newspapers do not begin to make as much money out of the poor delinquents as. do the district attorneys, court clerks and other offi cials in office. There'll come an expose some day and somebody's fingers will be burnt and toes tread upon. There is a day of reckoning in this-world, the same as in the world to come. The ballot box will be the Judgment day for tne parasites who-are robbl.? the tax payers of New Mexico without stint. . It Is well and good, eminently prop er,' that Lincoln and Montezuma parks, those beautifully located spots of ground, are to be Improved by the city authorities, with the aid and as sistance of public-spirited citizens by private subscriptions. The city parks should rightly be made the beauty spots of Las Vegas. With green grass, shade trees and electric lights, they would be that which other parks are Intended to be, attractions alike for the pleasure-seekers and the health seekers. In every city In the country of any proportions and pretensions. the parks are given especial attention lor they add fully two-thirds to a city's attraction. Commander-in-Chief Albert D. Shaw, of the Grand Army of the Republic, has issued his memorial day general orders. He calls special attention to the necessity of the organization at large assisting the comrades of the southern -department in the work of memorial dav in their several local! ties. Upon them devolves the solemn duty of paying proper tribute to the soldier dead of the nation who arc burled in the various national cemeter ies throughout the south. The mem bershtp of the southern department, the commander-in-chief says, is not large, but the comrades are devoted and enthusiastic, and will see to it that every grave of a union soldier or sailor raceives on Memorial day its tribute ot flags and flowers. Flags must be furnished and financial help given, and department commanders are requested to direct attention to the matter by urging prompt and liberal contribu tions. In treating of trades unions and machinery In the "Engineering Maga zine" for May, Charles Buxton Going takes the stand that there are many things to be carefully considered and adjiyrted before any change In the number of working hours can go into effect. Unfilled contracts or estab lished prices for product, are the most obvious; the longer hours of idleness for expensive plants can by no means be ignored. But with proper compen sation in the manner of working, there is little question that the hours of working might be materially reduced without loss of wage earnings to f. workman nor increase or cost or pro duct to the employer. Actual practice under the piece wort system has pro ven this too often and too deSatteiy j to leave much room for argument on the other side. In fact, the theorem that a man's labor production is di rectly proportional to his hours of working, is alraort as fallacious as tho trade union -proposition that tin amount of wage winning work in the world is a definite quantity, and will be exhausted sooner by more dii'geut vorking.

Major Van Patten has a beautiful home in an ideal spot in Dona Ana county, where every honest man can have rest and peace and hospitality that will ahame the crabbed east. He is a worthy and genial soul, such an one as man must travel far to find, and can delight you with a charming and reminiscent narrative about the pe culiar things which have happened in this land of sunshine and history; Illustrating his story with ancient war knives and hatchets, swords, guns and pistols, or can make the house wife open her eyes at the primitive ways that obtained in the savage households. Long may the major wave, to love and be loved, tell good stories and give aid where it is need ed among the indigent and helpless and simple people who constantly go to bill for these things. ' Paul Wunschmann, who left for his home in Santa Fe today, after a most agreeable tarry among old and newly made friends In Las Vegas, Is the ac tive and efficient representative of a number of insurance companies, has resided in the Territory for twenty years, has contributed to every char itable enterprise that ever found root in the ancient city of Santa Fe, is an ex-officer In the Prussian army, and is of the opinion that these United States n general, and New Mexico in particu lar are the finest places on this terres trial globe.

J A. David, industrial c trmissioaor for the Santa Fe, reached Springer with two probable lnvescora, this af-r noon. The round-house employes whose services have been dispensed with here received their pay checks this afternoon. Santa Fe Pacific "hay burner" No. 100 took out No. .22 passenger train this afternoon. And a little, old, leaky tea kettle she is, too. umcera of the roads operating in the territory west of Chicago have started a movement intended to stop the practice of what they call the street fair nuisance." Some time ago the Initial lines at Denyer, Colo., declined to concede any "reductions in their rates for the benefit of street fairs, festivals and other trade schemes. The movement thus start ed in the Rocky mountain country has reached Chicago. Effective May 10th, through live stock rates on the Santa Fe will be abolished from New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Including Southern Pacific stations, west of Deming, and all sta tions in New Mexico on the Santa Fe to Denver ft Rio Grande and Colorado Midland points, on account of the in- ability of the lines concerned to agree upon a percentage of division. The circular cancels through rates and after the date named rates to Trini dad, Pueblo and Colorado Springs will be the sum of the local rates which means an increase of 10 per cent. Governor Stanley, of Kansas, is pro. curing statistics relative to the num ber of trainmen, postal clerks, etc., who are deprived ot their votes by be ing on their runs election ' day. The governor suggested in hia first mes sage that the legislature pass a law providing that railroad men could de posit their ballots with some officer who should turn them over to the elec tion boards, but the legislature ignor ed It. It is Governor Stanley's inten tion to push this matter before the next Kansas legislature, and he will call on trainmen at all division points to furnish the necessary statistics. The Baltimore & Ohio railroad is preparing to give medallions to uni formed employes who have served the road over five years. In all 1,583 em ployes will be thus remembered. - Two of the engineers, Joseph West an W. Blackwell, who have been In the ser vice fifty-three and and fifty-one years, respectively, will serve as passes over the lines of the Baltimore & Ohio as long as these veterans live. Eleven others, who have served forty-five years, will receive silver medallions and the remainder will be of bronze. They will be of oblong shape and are meant to be attached to the watch chain. j General Passenger Agent Sebastian of the Rock Island road askel per mission of the other lines In the west ern passenger association recently to run a series of cheap rate excursions between Chicago and Colorado points and vice versa. The roads opposed the proposition, and Mr. Sebastian gave notice his company would take independent action and run the ex cursions. Four will be run In each di rection. The dates for those depart ing irom Chicago are June 20th, July 9th and 17th, and August 1st The rate will be one fare for the round trip. East-bound, the excursions will be run from Denver and other Colo rado points June 23d, July 12th and 20th and August 4th. General Superintendent Charles Dyer, of the Colorado & Southern rail road, has reached an amicable agree ment with a committee of trainmen with whom he has held conferences during the last two weeks, relative to their demand for extra men on the trains between Denver and Trinidad. The conductors and brakemen are re quired to take trains through the whole distance, while engineers have changes at Colorado Springs and Pueb lo. The difficulty was settled by com promise, the superintendent agreeing to pay the men extra for all mileage above 6,000 miles a month, but rtid not grant the request to put on other con ductors and brakemen.
