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

Bribers and Bribed.
.Missouri jurisprudence, passes the
common understanding. 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 ? Pittsburg
