Fill DAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1800.
A very ishort experience of lie
publican rulo was enough for little
Delaware, and she has. returned to
the Democratic coluniu.
The Mclvinley prices are high and
they will go higher, but they will be
forced to go a great deal higher to
reach the height of the Democratic
Tiieke is a deal of speculation
as to what will bo the effect of the
elections on the force bill passed
by the Lower House of the pres
ent Congress, now pending in the
Senate, and on the Mclvinley tariff
bill. It is difficult to believe that
the conservative leaders in the Re
publican party will totally disre
gard the unmistakable declaration
of the indignation of the people
and public opinion, but will they
heed the wrath to come and exer
cise more wisdom in their future
deliberations on important meas
ures involving the liberties and
rights of the white people of this
In looking over the returns and
comparing the vote of the two par
ties, it is apparent that nearly one
million Republicans become dis
gusted with their party and jump
ed it. The Huntingdon Republi
can claims that the " apparent ap
athy upon the part of the Demo
crats completely disarmed the Re.
publicans and led to their utter dis
comfiture." The field is still open
for Republicans and Republican
newspapers who desire satisfactory
information to invent other expla.
nations which shall be as startling
ly original as that and as destitute
of truth concerning the facts which
led to the overwhelming defeat of
The solid South no longer furn
ishes a majority of the Democratic
Contrressmeu. The latest returns
show that the Eastern States wil
be represented in the next House
by 52 Democrats, and 42 Republi
cans: the Western States by 08
Democrats, and 48 Republicans
tho Southern States by 118 Demo
crats, and 3 Republicans. Thus,
the House of the Fifty-second Con
gress will stand: Democrats, 238;
Republicans, 93. The Democratic
majority is. 145. The South sends
118 Democratic votes, the North,
East, and West send 121 Demo
cratic votes, hence it appears that
without a vote from the South the
Democrats would still have a ma
jority of 28. The Democratic majority-
in the Eastern States is 10 ;
in the Northern and Western States,
20 ; and in the Southern States it
is 115. New Hampshire, Rhode
Island, Montana, and Nebraska, all
heretofore Republican States, send
sol id Democratic Congressional del
egations, and the sixteen Southern
States, except Kentucky and Ten
nessee, send solid Democratic del
The political result of the elec
tion last week has not only changed
the complexion of the two parties
in the National House of Repre
sentatives, iho only question un
settled is how large will the Dem
ocratic majority bo in that body;
but has hud the eiTcct of reducing
the Republican majority in the
Senate of the United States after
The present Republican majori

publican Senators from Idaho and
Wyoming are to be added, thus in
creasing the Republican majority
j 4 i ir Jt i 1 r 1 t
lo Hoi Ueniocrats and dl .re
publicans, and thus it will stand
during the present Congress. The
Democrats of New York have cap
tured the general assembly, which
insures a Democratic successor to
William M. Evahts; the Demo
crats of Wisconsin have a majority
in the general assembly and John
C. SrooNEii will be succeeded by a
Democrat; the Democrats of Illi
nois have a majority in the general
assembly, and the retirement of C.
R. F ah well is certain ; The Dem
ocrats and Alliance members have
a clear majority in tho general as
semblies of Kansas and South Da
kota, and John J. Ingalls and
Gideon Moody will be retired and
the new Senators from these two
States will be of the Democratic
faith, and may be depended on to
support Democratic principles on
all important measures. The terms
of these five Republican Senators
expire March 4 next, which will
reduce the Republican vote in the
Senate to 4G, and increase tho Dem
ocratic vote to 42. The indications
are that the Democrats have cap
tured the general assemblies of Col
orado and New Hampshire. In this
event, the Republicans would have
44, and the Democrats 44, a tie
Should Montana be Democratic,
the Senate would then stand 45
Democrats, and 43 Republicans.
The general assemblies of Colorado,
New Hampshire, and Montana, are
in doubt, and the completo official
returns are necessary to decide the
result. However, the latter has
doubtless gone Republican.
Tho Territories of Arizona, New
Mexico, and Utah are demanding
admission to Statehood, and each
is Democratic. For this reason
there is no probability that these
Territories will be permitted by a
Republican Senate to enter the
Union. Leaving these Territories
out, we look at the situation in 1891.
The' new Democratic general as
semblies of New York and Wis
consin will so correct the Republi
can gerrymander of the assembly
districts in those States as to ena
ble the Democrats to carry them
in the fall elections two years hence.
in each State Republican Senators,
Fkank Hiscock, of New York, and
Philetus Sawyer, of Wisconsin,
will end their term in the Senate in
l ii93, and be succeeded by Demo
crats. Thus, it is possible for the
Republicans to control the Senate
until 1S93, but they will be in tho
minority after that date.

The country is watching with in
terest the attempt of tho Republi
cans to steal the general assemblies
of New Hampshire and New York
and two United States Senators.
But the people are watching the
plot, and if they accomplish their
rascality, it will not only arouse
and greatly intensify the opposition
to tho Republican party through
out the country, but the rebellion
in the New England States against
such proceedings would wipe out
all there is left of the party.
The opinion fteems to prevail in
New York State that if Governor
HiLL refuses the Senatorship, if he
can get it, ho would make the great
est mistake of his life.

Butler, the other Republican can
