PIPbf 1S9C and ^^P^ount of the split nor of the threat |HKlds over the campaign of ^PRr that if what he calls "Wall ^PIKet influences" prevail at St. Louis ^P^^^he will lead a "holt to which he will rally that element that is faithful to his^wild vagaries on business and fi " nancial questions, it is inuispuiuDie that he is formidable enough to materially sap the normal Democratic ; strength that would lie consolidated on a harmonious ticket and platform that would enlist the united support of the party. A study of the dlffer> ences between this year and D92 is interesting. In the next electoral college there : will be 47G members, so that it will need 239 votes to elect a President and Vice-President. The Democratic arithmetic men start by counting 109 from the South, in which they in-, elude West Virginia, .Maryland and Delaware. But neither of these States has been carried by the Democrats in a Presidential year since 1S92 and West Virginia at least is as 7 soundly Republican as Vermont, for it is the protective tariff policy that, has placed her industries on a solid basis. Delaware and .Maryland may be classed as doubtful, and even if j they are transferred to the Democratic column it amounts to but 101 :'v votes, or 7S short of a majority. Can " it recruit that number from the North M and Vest? To it might tie added the 29 of Now York and it would still be lacking "39. Add the 19 of New Jersey and Connecticut and it would ;C: leave 20 to be gathered up elsewhere. Wisconsin gave a Democratic pluralIty of 0,514 in 1S92. but in 1S9C it went Republican by 102,612 an<l four . years ago by 103.C56. About the v ' same ratio stands for Indiana arul IIC linois. These three States east 54 electoral votes and it would require a most extraordinary change of popuIar opinion in them to take them over to the Democratic side this year even ?J" if the- St. Louis convention should do the marvelous thing of agreeing on a fe ticket and Bryan were brought into submission.?Pittsburg Times.

The State Supreme Court has' affirmed the penirenrinrv sentences of two of the Sr. Louis boodlers who had been convicted of receiving shares of the $4 7,500 put up as a corruption fund to secure the enactment of a lighting: bill by the St. Louis House of Delegates, or' which they were members. It was alleued that Edward Butler, a Democratic manager, supplied the money, but he was acquitted on practically the same testimony thar convicted the men now in prison.' It must occur to every person who comprehends that bribery requires a payer as well as a payee in the transaction that this is a phenomenal condition of affairs that prevails in Missouri. District Attorney Folk has been at work since March. 1902, on the boodle cases. Eighteen jury convictions are the record he has made, but eight of , them have been reversed by the Su- . preme Court. The reversals include ] all the men who were found guilty , of giving bribes. The theory on which . The administration of so-called justice is based in that State is that while i witnesses who swear to knowledge ] that, certain officials took money for ( their votes are to be believed, they are utterly discredited when they testily that they have equal knowledge regarding the men who furnished the bribery funds ?
