THURSDAY EVENNG, MAY 3, 1900
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
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
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 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
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
