The defeat of the Democratic party at Tuesday's elections was an exhibition of sublime moral heroism. The chas tisement it received did not come from without, but from within the party or ganization. It was not a triumph ef the Republicans; it was a victory of Democ racy over itself — a demonstration more striking than any that had preceded it, not only of its capacity to wisely govern tlie country, but of its ability to govern itself. The party has fallen upon evil days. Its leaders have been striving more earnestly for success than to do that which Is right— for temporary advantage rather than for that greatest good to the greatest number which is the essence of patriotism. It has been thought ex pedient in some quarters to use ques tionable means to accomplish desirable ends. But the popular revolt has taught those who control the primaries and the conventions that such taciics must have an end it the party would peroetuate itself as the governing force of the republic. Other parties have maintained an ex stence long after their usefulness has ceased, by unblushing frauds and brazen disregard of the popular will. The Dem ocratic party cannot afford to emulate their example. The rank and file of the party are too intelligent to be deceived by false professions; too independent to be intimidated by the party lash; too honest to consent to the perpetration of wrong for mercenary ends. No man, be he ever so high in the party councils, has the power to control the votes of the masses for a candidate who is unworthy, or a cause not bused on equity. No cal cimine, however thickly^ applied, could conceal from the scrutiny of the voters the moral delinquencies of Maynard,nor could the heroics of Neal obscure his mental deficiencies. Honesty or states manship was lacking in the candidates, and they were given their quietus with the utmost dispatch. In the estimation of all good citizens the Democratic party stands higher today than it has ever stood before. It has dis played the courage without parallel in the history of parties— the courage to pun ish its own leaders and itself in the in terest of good government and honesty. It has served notice upon those who seek personal aggrandizement through its agency that if they would succeed they must be above reproach as officials and as citizens. Its machinery cannot be employed to foist upon the people an official who lacks thosa attributes that combine to makn an exemplary Amer ican citizen. Questionable methods may prevail for a time, and the domi neering of selfish organizations may ex ercise a passing influence, but the in herent patriotism and honesty of the Democratic masses will ultimately as sert themselves, and bring ruin to those who seek to sabvert the organization into an engine for the accomplishment oi selfish aims. Democracy has chastened itself, and it will be the better for the drubbing it has received. It has done well. It 19 greater iv its merited defeat than it could have been in undeserved success, for it has proved its greatness by prov ing its willingness to punish itself. POLITICAL MORALITY, EAST AND WEST. The sneering references of the pres of the East to the "wild and woolly West" will not be lessened now that the elections ara over and the results known. For these results have shown a wide divergence between the sections on moral grounds— a divergence sogrea as to argue the existence of distinct standards of morality, between whioh there can never exist either harmony or sympathy. The Democrats of New York nominat ed for their candidate for judge of the court of appeals a man who had prosti tuted the judicial power of the state for purposes of partisan advantage. The decent people of the state, Democrats and Republicans, made common cause against him, and he was buried beneath an avalanche of votes. The Republic ans of lowa nominated a self-confessed and duly convicted pension shark for governor of the state, and he was elect ed by a larger majority than has been given to any candidate for that office since the close of the war. Maynard in New York, was repudiated because of tne infamy that attached to his name; Jackson in lowa was elected against an honorable man iv spite of his moral leprosy. It is a matter for congratulation that tha Democrats of the Empire state unit- Ed with the Republicans in rebuking the unjust judge; it is a source of re gret that the Republicans of lowa did not join with the Democrats in defeat ing the political aspirations of the dis honest pension attorney. There is moral principle exemplified in the East; partisan bigotry at the West. Honest Democrats everywhere can view the defeat of Judge Maynard with equanimity, if not with satisfac tion, for he has brought disgrace upon himselt ana humiliation upon the party. But no honest Republican can regard the election of Jackson to the guber natorial chair of lowa with feelings other than humiliation. Both meo were admittedly dishonest, but one lias been repudiated, while the other has been approved. The defeat of Maynard was a moral triumph; the victory of Jackson a moral defeat. Partisanship more than morality un doubtedly brought about the humilia tion in lowa. Considerations of com mon decency were lost sight of in the strife for advantage 10 the Republican cause. A convict in the peniteutiary would have been chosen governor on Tuesday as easily as was Jackson. But in their blind adherence to party the people of the state have affixed a stain upon their owu name and upon the people of the entire West that can never be effaced, while the Democracy of New York have proved that they are capable of rising above ali partisan considerations and taking a bold stand in defense of official purity ana inflexible judicial fairnebs. In the contrast thus presented the West appears to ill advantage, and will scarcely dare to protest if she shall be made the subject of ill-tempered jest or gibe. The Globe coneratulates the Demo rats of Mew York upon the assistance THE SAINT PAtJX DAILY GLOBE- THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 9 % 1803. they rendered in accomplishing the de feat of Judge Mayuanl. They showed their manliness, their honesty, their stood citizenship. We have ouly con tempt, however, for the Republicans of lowa, who, by their subserviency to caucus and convention dictation, have placed the stigma of disgrace upon the entire West by choosing a knave at their chiet executive. ANARCHY'S ROUT. Let us hope that the result of the judicial election in Chicago will teach the Democrats of that city a leason that they will never forget. The convention of that party permitted itself to be in timidated by the anarchistic element and Gov. Altgeld, who had a personal grievance, into refusing to Judge Joseph E. Gary the compliment of a renomination as judge of the superior court, an office he has graced with dig nity and honored with his impartiality for many years. Judge Gary presided at the trial of the anarchists implicated in the Haymarket slaughter in ISS7, and his rulings, while based upon good law and dictated by motives of pubiic policy, were decidedly adverse to the accused. All were condemned to death upon the gallows, as they deserved, and four of them were hanged on the same scaffold, one other escaping the hangman's noose by blowing his head olf with a dyna mite cartridge, the remaining three being sent to the penitentiary. The judgment was just, and was approved by all good citizens. Its execution gave a sense of security to the people of Chicago to which they had long been strangers. It is not matter of surprise that the anarchistic class conceived a deep and bitter hatred for Jiniire Gary. Several attempts upon his life were made, but tie fortunately escaped unharmed. At the Democratic judicial convention re cently held there was a combined on slaught upon him by the worst elements of the party, headed by Gov. Altgelu. His renomination was defeated, but the Republicans, recosnizing the value of his services on iho bench, placed him at the head or their ticket. His candidacy was supported by the better portion of the Democratic Dress of thu city, and he was elected by a round majority. And all good citizens, irrespective of party, will rejoice at the fact; for, besides be ing an indorsement of a fearless and upright judtie, it was a rebuke to the cowardliness of the local Democracy that refused to do justice through fear of offending the criminal element of the city. Judge Gary's election is a protest of good citizens against pandering to the vicious elements in society. It is a re buke to time-serving politicians who, for the sake of a few votes, would con sent to the condemnation of a faithful official because he dared to do right. It is a notice to anarchists that they are yet under the ban ot popular opinion, and will be held to a strict accountability for any overt acts they may commit. It is a warning to the Democratic party to cut loose from those entangling alliances with law-defying cabals that are a con stant menace to the safety of the com munity, it is an announcement to all men that he who has been found faith ful to the sacred trusts given to his keeping will be ever held iv grateful re membrance. The defeat of Judge Gary would have been a lasting disgrace to the citizens of Chicago; his election vindicates their honor and their intelligence, and gives an added sense of personal security to every inhabitant. THE FACTS STATED. On the 2Sth of October the Globe published a special telegram from it.i correspondent at West Superior, Wis., setting forth that Gen. Mullen had brought suit against ex-Gov. Merriam, R. C. Elliott and John li. Mather for alleged frauds in the sale of the West Duluth Gas and Water company, and also stated that the last two named had scorched Mullen In a land deal at Ever ett. Wash. The telegram purported to be a synopsis of a complaint already tiled in court, and, coming from a duly accredited correspondent, was accepted and published as part of the supposed news of the day. The attention of the Globe being called to the matter, and the statement made that au injustice had been done, we at once sent tor a copy of the com plaint, delaying comment until we could be more fully advised in the prem ises. The complaint shows that the telegram sent the Globe was dec'dedly incorrect and grossly unjust to the par ties. Ex-Gov. Merriam is in no way in cluded in the suit, his name not being mentioned. The suit is brought by John U. Mullen against Messrs. Elliott and Malher for money loaned. So far as the complaint stiows, it is merely au action to recover an indebtedness in curred by borrowing money in the or dinary course of business, and no fraud is alleged or intimated. The Globe regrets that it should unwittingly have oeen made the medium of circulating such a report, and nastens to set the gentlemen ritrht before the public. We have taken steps which will prevent the publication of incorrect news from that source in the future. "The Globe tries to console itself with the reflection that if Harrison had been chosen last November, the Repub licans would have been defeated yester day as overwhelmingly as the Demo crats.

VIRGINIA'S VOTE. Democrats Sweep the Old Do minion to the Tune of Fifty Thousand. Richmond, Va., Nov. Returns thus tar of the election held iatnis state yesterday have all been reported by majorities, and therefore it is impossible to tell even approximately the number of votes cast. Two things are certain, however. One is that the Democrats did not poll their usual strength, and the other is that the Republicans did not support the Populists. Official and unofficial returns indicate that the Dem ocrats have carried 23 senatorial dis tricts, the Populists 1, and 1 district is still is doubt. ' The Democrats have fifteen members of the senate who hold over. Or tne members elected to the house of delegates, the Democrats will probably have 90 out of the 100 elected. Indications lead to the belief that the Democratic majority in the state will reach 50,000. ' Richmond, Va., Nov.

There are fifty, counties and the city of Bristol to be heard from. The indications are that the Democratic majority will reach 50,000. . Following are believed to be the only counties in the state that have gone for the Populists: New, Kent, Camptell, ; Caroline, Prince George, Greenville, Pdwhatan, Prince Edward, Sussex, Tazewell and Floyd. MARYLAND Iti LOYAL. Twenty Thousand Plurality and Nearly All the Legislature. Baltimore, Nov. B.— The Democrats have carried this state by 20,000 plural ity. They also elect 08 of the 9L mem bers of the house of delegates, and 20 out of 20 senators. The Republicans gained heavily In Western and Southern Maryland. In this city the Democrats elected 18 of 22 first branch councilmen, and 8 of 10 in the second branch. Mayor Latrobe, Democrat, ran behind his ticket. NEW JERSEY. Anti-Race Track Party Carries the Legislature. Latest returns from the New Jersey election only serve to increase the ma jorities of the anti-race track men, and emphasize the defeat of the rine which has so long dominated the state. The opponents of the gamblers, under the lead of Bosses Thompson and McKum have won a treat victory. The anti-race track men have elected seven state sen ators and their opponents but one. Nine Democratic state senators held over and so do four Republicans. The new state senate stauds: .Republican, 11; Demo crats, 10. In the state assembly the Re publicans or anti-race tracK men have 39 and the Democrats 21. There is a clear working majority against the winter race tracks in both houses of the legislature. The most signal victory of the reform party is tlie election of Col. John J. Tuff«y as sheriff of Hudson county by a majority so great that the race-track candidate, Edward li. Stanton, seems not to have been in the fight at all. This is especially significant because the possession of the sheriff was of vital importance to the men who own the winter tracks, aud the fight was a des perate one. The defeat of the winter track men means the repeal of the race track gam bliug laws. The victory of the re form element will naturally be followed by discontinuance of winter racing in New Jersey. A significant feature of the voting was its sole re ference to race track legisla tion. That was the one issue. When the race track champion in the field was the Republican candidate, as in Atlantic City, he was defeated by the United action of the Republicans and Democrats. In Sus sex county every Democratic candidate was defeated. Such a thing should have happened in the county the entire fusion ticket appears to have been elected. lv Monmouth county the en tire fusion ticket seems to have been elected. Founder Braddock, of Asbury Park, claims to have a small majority. NEBRASKA REPUBLICAN. Decrease in the Populist Vote Through the State. Omaha, Neb., Nov. B.— The indica tions tonight are that Harrison, Hep., for supreme judge, will carry the state by from 2,000 to 5,000 plurality over Holcomb, Pop. About half the state has been heard from only. The returns show a heavy falling off in the vote— probably 10 per cent Repnb lican, 15 per cent Democratic, and 5 per cent Populist. Five per cent of the Republicans went to the Populist candidate for supreme iudge, and prob ably 10 per cent of the Democrats. In spite of this the Populist vote sbows a decrease, and it is taken as good evi dence that the party in Nebraska is ou the decline. Twenty-four counties out of ninety in the state show Harrison, Rep., 18,650; Holeomb, Pop., 16,430; Ir vine, Dem., 9.159; Mrs. Bitteiibender, Pro., 1,640. IOWA'S VERDICT, Jackson Claims His Election as Governor by Forty Thousand. Dcs Moixes, 10., Nov. B.— Jackson's friends, late this afternoon, claim his plurality to be 40,000. It is the most stupendous Republican landslide in the history of the state. Gen. Weaver ex plains it by saying: "The result is a rebuke to the admin istration of Cleveland for abandoning its promise to reform the tariff." Then Mr. Weaver says the Democrats of the Northwest have always been pledged to silver, and the administra tion compelled the annihilation of the white metal, hence the rebuke. Another thing to which Gen. Weaver lays Boies' defeat, is his straddle on silver. The legislature will be overwhelmingly lie publican. The Republicans are now claiming 70 representatives out of 100. Frank D. Jackson, Republican candi date for governor, is elected by a plu rality of about 30.000, or 8.000 more than President Harrison received 'in 1892. Only about one-third of the voting pre cincts had been heard from today, but the returns from scattered precincts all over the state show such a steady aver age train for Jackson that there is no doubt of the result. The balance of the Republican ticket, is elected .by a large . majority. ;> It was a perfect Republican landslide and Chairman Fuller of the Democratic com 111 concedes Jackson is elected by 20.000. .He . lays the result to the calamity cry of the Republican party, ejhiming that the hard times were at tr/buted to the Democratic administra tion, ami that the laboring meu, mer- ' Chants, farmers and \ professional meu Voted for a chance. ■Chairman Blytiie, of. the Republican oininiUee, says: "lowa went Repub- ■ lican because it is for protection, and because of the liberal position the party took en the liquor Question," . The legislature will be Republican. Out of 24 .senators to be elected, the Re publicans elected 17. = Out of 100 mem bers of the house, the Republicans will ; about 65. The Populist vote in tin; state will hardly exceed 25.000. and ttie Prohibition vote not more than 14,000. 1 Dcs Moixes, Tn.rNov. B.— .Pluralities received up to 1 a. m. from ninety-three counties give Jackson. Rep.. ■■ 43,528. and Boies, Dem., 14,652. This tives : Jackson a net plurality ..of. 28,876. with six counties to hear trom. : live of which are Republican. It has been impossible to make any estimate or the Prohibition and Populist vole as the returns are very imperfect. The latest returns show Chat the Re publicans have elected seventy-six members in the lower house of the as sembly and the Democrats twenty-four, giving the Republicans the largest ma jority they have had iv the assembly for . over twelve years. Gov. Boies takes his defeat philosoph- i cally. On account of his illness he was not apprised of the result until this morning. The governor manifested no surprise, and said personally he had no feeling of regret, though for his parly he had hoped tor a different result. DETROIT DIVIDED. Repnbli<mn Mayor and Democrat ic Conjiresdiniin Elected. Detkoit, Nov. B.— Complete returns from yesterday's elections show that the entire Republican municipal ticket has been successful. Pingree. Rep. for mayor, is elected for the third time by a plurality of 5,700, and the balance of the ticket is carried by pluralities rang ing from 1.000 to 4,000* The Democrats made a net train of three in the board of aldermen, but the Republicans will still have a large majority. Levi T. Griffin, Dem., is elected to fill the va cancy caused by the death of Congress man Chipman, of the First district, by a plurality of 1,700. KKYSIONK STA.TB, Republicans Get the Usual Major ity of One Hundred and Thirty Thousand. ' Philadelphia, Nov. 8. -At mid night, with full returns from almost every county in the state, it looks as though the Republican majority on the state ticket would not be less than 130, ---000. The official vote 'in almost every instance has far exceeded the es timates of the most sanguine Republi cans. Allegheny county, for instance, has been put down on the Republican columu for 20,000 majority. It gives over 27,000. Armstrong:, estimated at 1,000. gives 2,000. Beaver, estimated at 1,500. gives 1,723; Blair, estimated at 2, 300, gives 3.100: Delaware, estimated at 3.800, gives 3,800; West moreland, estimated at 800, gives 2,500; Huntington, estimated at 1.200, gives 1,530; Meicer, estimated at 'JSO, eives 2.013; Center county, which had been conceded to the Democrats by 700, only gave them 11 majority. As the probable majority in the state, as computed from the previous estimate, was 108,218. the Janje increase in offi cial majorities leaves but little doubt but it will ultimately reach 135, --000 or more. The city is in a blaze of ' enthusiasm, the "streets are full of paraders with brass bands, drum corps and campaign uniforms who are clie r.nir themselves hoarse with de liguL THE FAIK CITY. Election of the Entire Republican Judicial Ticket. Chicago, Nov. B.— The revision today of election returns shows that the Re publicans elected their entire judicial ticket, with the possible exception of Kraft, with Judge Gary in the lead. Kraft was identified to some extent with the socialists here. The Republicans showed general gains throughout the city and county over the presidential vole of last year, and, in addition, Gary, wflo presided at the Haymarket anarchists' trial, and who was opposed by Gcv. Altgeld's in fluence, received many Democratic votes, putting him considerably ahead of his ticket. In the fight for county commissioners the result is somewhat in doubt, and it may require the official count to decide which party is in the lead. It is appatent, however, that the board of commissioners will be a mixed one, as men on both tickets seem to have been elected. Gary's plurality is estimated at 8,000, although en thusiastic Republicans place it as high as 15,000, with the remainder of the Re publican ticket probably from 2,000 to 4,000 behind Gary's lead. ALTGELD'S BLACK EYE. Election of Judge Gary Gives Him a Set Back. Ciiicago, Nov. B.— The defeat of the Democrats here and the election of Judge Gary has been a severe blow to Gov. Altgeld, who dictated the maKe-up of the Democratic ticket and threw his entire influence against Gary. The de feat, it is thought, has lessened the governor's chances for re-election, and discouraged the Democrats upon the eve of the election of a successor to the late Mayor Harrison. Many causes are assigned for the victory of the Republi can ticket. The influence of the murdered mayor, Carter H. Harrison, was still felt, and his avowed antago nism to Gov.Altgeld.with whom he was a competitor for a seat In the United States senate, is thought to have made votes for Gary. The Irish-American vote, too, figured largely in the election and was cast heavily for Gaiy and the Republicans. Judge Moran, who championed Gary's cause, helped sway a large element. Then, too, German Lutherans appeared to have largely abandoned for the time being their alli ance with the Democrats on the school issue. The strong sentiment against the anarchists which exists throughout the city was also a factor, although the latter element did not figure so largely as had been expected by many. It is generally thought that Gary, who, al though a Democrat, was placed on the Republican ballot, materially aided his ticket, and some Democrats now claim that h d he not been nominated by the Republicans the result might after all have been a Democratic victory. A TARIFF VICTORY. Gen. Alger Advises the Democrats to Make No Changes. Chicago, Nov. B.— GeD. R. A. Al?er said in an interview here today that yesterday's Republican victories scored a victory for the tariff. "The contest In Ohio," said he, "was strictly on the tariff issue, and the same influences that gave Gov. McKinley his magnificent majority defeated the L»em crats in Massachusetts and lowa. If the president and congress will heed the expression of the people as voiced in the elections yesterday, and wHi say that there shall be no change in the tariff at this dole, k think there wM be a restora :tlon of ( confidence and business will go on as it did before the depression. The people understand that the Democratic . promise to wipe out the tariff - caused tlie financial, depression, and they yes terday demanded that the tariff" be maintained." . ■ . ■■ •. ■• •.. . ;^- ALiTGKLD'S IDEA. What Ho Has to Say About Judge ■'•'<-;•-*?• V Gary's i- lection. ;•; Springfield. 111.. Nov. B.— Gov. Alt eld was -interviewed today on the causes of the Democratic defeat in Chi cago. He said: "If Judge Gary does not run 20,000 ahead of his ticket, then tbe election will be a rebuKe for. the reason that, in addition to the tremendous efforts that the Republican party and all of the newspapers made for him in this campaign, several of the most prominent and most in fluential Democrats in Cook county -worked for him on personal grounds, although they severely denounced his course. So that while Gary as a man is re-elected judge. 'Garyisin' is defeated. So far as my per sonal attitude is concerned, it has been deliberately misrepresented for partisan purposes. 1 denounced not Gary the man. but Garyism, and in doing this I simply quoted from the record made by Gary." UTAH IS MIX KB. Republican Gains Throughout the Territory. Salt Lake City, Utah, Nov. B.— Election returns from all over the terri tory indicate a mixed result, with large Republican gains on the average. This city elects two Liberals and one Demo crat to the legislative council. The Democrats probably have five of that body, the Republicans live. 1-ne Liber als elect six members of tlie lower house in this city. The indications are that the other eighteen will l>e pretty evenly divided between the Republicans and Democrats. In this city a coalition of Republicans and Democrats elect the municipal ticket except treasurer aud ten of the council. The Liberals elect five. Ogden was carried by the Repi>H cans on both the municipal and legisla tive ticket. GRANDPAPA'S HAT. What Ben Harrison Thinks of the Landslide. Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. B.— A rep resentative of the Associated Press called this evening at the residence of the ex-president for a statement of his views upon the results of the elections of Tuesday, and found Indiana's distin guished citizen in a very pleasant mood. "1 do not know that there is anything that 1 could say," said Gen. Harrison, "that would be of interest. It seems to me that no election we have ever had has such a significance as that of Tues day." It was his only comment. "There was, in fact. 1 think, effective refutation of the suggestion we heard a year ago to the effect that it was intended to arrange the down throw of the Republican party. 1 would not be surprised at any plurality in Ohio, and that reminds me of a story a local manufacturer told me yesterday. A lew days before the election some of his workmen, moat of them Democrats, were making on a paper their guesses on McKin ley's majority. The guesses ran all the way from 10,000 to 100,000. Finally they came to John, a Democrat, and told him to put down his estimate. John studied a minute and asked how many votes there were in Ohio. He was told there were about 800,000. 'Well,' replied John, 'he ought to get all of them; Dut my iruess at 800,000-' 1 was somewhat of the same mind as John, and therefore Kin not surprised at the magnitude of the triumph of Got. McKinley. "The governor this mornii.g received congratulatory messages on his victory. He was asKed to deliver the memorial address, and he told me then of his in tention to again become a candidate tor governor. 1 told him that no Republican would ever maUe ihe race for governor of Ohio under more favorable circum stances than would the candidate of the campaign that has just closed." "Do you consider that the silver question was much of an issue?" was asked . "It may have had its influence. One thing I am sure, and that is that it was not due to local causes." LOT OF LUNATICS. Jerry Simpson's Judgment of the Late Unpleasantness. Topeka. Kan., Nov. B.— Speaking of the Republican landslide in the East, Congressman Jerry Simpson said to day: "There are a lot of lunatics in the country wi:o know nothing themselves and were made to believe by the Re publican press that threateued revision of the tariff portended evil to the work ing class. Besides, they the Democratic party for the existing busi ness depression, which, as a matter of fact, is a result of iniquitous Repub lican legislation. The common people are like a man on a raft of saw logs. As one log sinks, he jumps to another and another, hoping to keep himself afloat. They will finally get on the People's party log, which is big enough to sup port them." David Overmyer, who may be the Democratic nominee for governor of Kansas in 1894. said: "The result in the East comes from the fact that, after the Democratic administration was elected explicitly on tariff issue, another issue was thrust in front of it, in which the people as a mass took no interest. If they took any, their sympathies were against the course of the administra tion." BPEAKKR CUISP. Democratic Defeat Due to Local Causes in the States. Nashville, Term., Nov. B.— Hon. diaries F. Crisp, speaker of the house of representatives, spent today in Nash ville, but kept himself secluded, and but few knew he was here. Referring to yesterday's elections, he said he did not ascribe the results of Tuesday's elections to any opposition to the Dem ocratic administration, but puruly to local causes. In his opinion the Democratic party has only to carry out the pledges of its platform, and the results of Tuesday would be forgotten before the next presidential contest. The tariff bill will be reported when congress convenes next mouth, said Mr. Crisp, "'and a clean-cut measure it will be. Ii will provide for a revenue tariff and make sweeping reductions all along the line. Many articles which are now taxed will come' in free, and the revenue to run the government will be raised by an increase of the tax on beer and other luxuries. I tnink a bill will be passed to levy an income tax and that the state bank tax will be re- Dealed." Speaker Crisp left on the 10 o'clock tiain for Atlanta. Kentucky Is O. K. Louisville, Ky., Nov. B.— The Derao crats have gained probaoly ten legis lators, partly due to the redistricling of the state by the last legislature, it is certain that the aggregate vote of the counties will be much smaller than in the election two years ago. In some counties the votes cast Tuesday were not more than half the usual number. This loss certainly comes from the Democratic side. The Populists have been practically wiped out. The Demo crats will have at least 105 members of the legislature out of a total of 138. Time was when the independent voter was sneered at as a milksop and a sentimentalist. The - independent voter has controlled the doubtful states and several others. Tfoe days of ma chinery are numbered*.— Washington Evening News. ' OVBB THE HAILING. Antone Straehota Tries Unsuc- cessfully to Commit Suicide. Antone F. Strnchota, living at SGG East Wyoming street, made a desperate attempt at suicide at midniglit last night, and but tor the prompt arrival of B. T. O'Neill on the scene the effort would have been a success. At 12: 15 cries of "Help," "Police," disturbed the usual quiet at that hour of Bridge square. Patrolman Morse ran to the center span of the Wabasha street bridge and found an elderly gentle man leaning over tne railing of the bridge holding with a death-like grip to the coat of a man whose body was swaying and twisting about in a struggle to n-gain a foothold on the structure. With the aid of the officer the would-be suicide was lifted over the rail and then taken to the central station. Here the young man gave the name above mentioned, and, as he was evidently on the verge of the "jim-jams," he was consigned to a cell and Dr. Hanley called to attend him. Mr. O'Neill said he had met Straehota during the evening and together they had visited the Tivoli. During the boot or so they were together Straehota bad told him he was out of work and seemed to be pursued witb bad luck. In order to drown his sorrows for the past few days he had been drink ing heavily. O'Neiil enueavored to cheer the youth up, and a few mo ments before the attempt at suicide was made they had parted at the end of the bridge, Straehota saying he was going home. Mr. O'Neill said something seemed to tell him to watch the young man, and he stood at the end •if the bridge watching Slrachota. When in the center of the bridge O'Neill saw the youriir fellow stop* and commence to climb over the railing* As fast as he could run O'Neill made for the spot and suc ceeded in grasping one of JStrachola's legs just as the young man drew it over preparatory to takintr the leap. O'Neill realizing that be could not hope to prevent the jump with only a hold on the leg, let go, and by a lucky grab seized the youth's coat collar and then shouted for help. Straclkota is a musician, twenty-two years old, and but a short time ago was accidentally shot at his home by the discharge of a revolver which fell from a trunk" he was un packing. He spent two months in tho hospital recover in £5 from the wound, and since then lias been unable to get employment. IN THE THEATERS. The Urania spectacles will continue at the Metropolitan opera house for the next three performances, closing with the matinee Saturday. Tonight from "Chaos 10 Man" will be presented, to morrow night "A Trip to the Moon" will be repeated, and the series of scenic spectacles will close with the "iVonders of America" at the matinee Saturday. Manager Scott has arranged for one performance only, Saturday nijfht, of Schilling's minstrels. Mr. Schilling's company is a most excellent one, and its performances give the greatest satisfaction wherever presented. Seats can now be secured for this perform ance. There are few plays which combine powerful dramatic interest with elab orate and beautiful scenic effects. As a rule, wheu a play is superior in one re spect, it is deficient in the other. A drama that combines both these quali ties in an eminently successful degree is J. K. Emmet's new play, "Fritz iv Prosperity," written especially for him by Sydney Bosenfeld, the author of "The Senator." The scene of the play is laid in South Dakota, during the present year, and tells a story of ab sorbine interest. The locality of the play affords unlimited opportunities for picturesque and elaborate scenery, and the work done in this respect by Homer Emeus, the celebrated artist, is said to exceed in beauty the best work of his successful carter. Mr. Emmet begins an engagement of four nights at the Metropolitan Sunday evening. Seals are now on sale at the box office. WEEKS GETS TEN YEARS. Announcement of His Conviction Causes Regret in Superior. New Yoijk, Nov. 8. — Francis H. Weeks was sentenced to ten years at Siug Sins by Recorder Smyth this morn ing on his plea of guilty of grand lar ceny. District Attorney Nicoll explained to the recorder when Weeks was brought into court tnat the prisoner had been remanded for a week onFnday last by Judge Martin, at Weeks' request, but that Weeks was held on five indict ments, and had asked to be permitted to plead miilty to one of these, charging him with grand larceny of 172,300, the property of Clemence S. B. Fish (Mrs. Nicholas Fish), which he Held in trust. •'Do you so plead?" asked Clerk Hall. "I do," replied Weeks iv a subdued voice. "Then I mere the immediate sentence of thejprisouei-," said Mr. Nicoli.where upon Keeoider Smyth, in a voice full of sadness and solemnity, pronounced sen tence. "1 regret very much to be placed in in tiie pssition of sentencing a man who is a member of the same profession to which 1 belong, and a member of a linn with which I Dave hud many transac tions," said the recorder. I know that you belong to a well connected, respect able family. . 1 know thai you brought ruin and disgrace upon yourself and your family, and that you feel it keenly. "It is unnecessary tor me to say any thing further. The sentence of the court is that you be confiued in the state prison at hard labor for ten years." Weeks took his sentence, the heaviest the law allows for his offense, without flinching. He seems to have expected it. He told Clerk Rail, in answer to the usual question, that he was forty-nine years old. lie looked fifteen years older than that when he arrived last Friday from Costa Kica. lie looked ten years \ounger as he stood erect and finely poised at the bar of justice today. He had no lawyer. He turned and followed the sheriff out of court with a firm tread. They took him across the hall to the office of Col. Townsend, where he had a lons visit with his wife, after which he was taken back to the Tombs. Should it be discovered that Weeks has secreted any of the embezzled prop erty, he will be brought to account on these other indictments, and will surely end the rest of his lite in prison. Special to the Globe. West SUPERIOB, Wis., Nov. B.— Tne capture, conviction and sentence of Francis H. Weeks, the late president of the Land and .River Improvement com pany, of this city, is generally a matter ot regret to the people of Superior. There is and always has been a very kindly feeling for Mr. Weeks here, lie was a pleasant man to meet, and a thor ough gentleman on all occasions. It is generally believed that, as far as the in terests or the city were concerned, he always acted on broad princi- Dlcs and honestly for the good of the community. There is little personal feeling against him be cause his irregularities and wroug doing djd not in a single instance affect the people here who had dealings witli him. Mr. Weeks' troubles do not in any de gree affect the Land & K'ver Improve ment company. A shortage of some thing like $70,000 in his accounts with the company is claimed, but the local officers say that that can be accounted for. The company of which Mr. Weeks was president had assets of nearly §15, --000,000. THE PRESS LORGNETTE. The people of the state of New Yorfe have spoken at the polls, and the day and the state are theirs. Ring ma chinery, ring dictation and ring nom inees are broken. A rebuke has been administered to those whose profession it has been to illustrate the expressions of the popular will by cunning arts and, by daring manipulation. — New York Telegram. The delay of congress to take action for the mitigation of the distress caused by the financial panic lias been the worst blow yet to the Democratic party. The piesidi-nt called congress together i o take Bt«*ps for the relief of th*> gen eral distrt -^, but congress did absolute ly nothg but wrangle.— New Orleans Picayune. It was natural to expect that the financial and industrial depression through which we have just passed would hurt the party in power and the paity which has charge of the govern ment always loses on a year of depres sion and stagnation. The Democracy, therefore, had occasion to expect loss.— New Orleans Times-Democrat. The Republicans and Cleveland Dem ocrats will have a two-thirds majority in each branch of the legislature next win ter, ami perhaps the Republicans them selves will have a two-thirds majority. This will enable the legislature to over ride any vetos that Goy. Flower writes, and the legislature will undertake the repeal of the Tammany anti-honest election laws and anti-home rule and may legislate Tammany's city officers into oblivion.— Ntw York Wail and Express. At last the people of this state have had a tree and untramnieled opportunity to express then opinion of David Ben nett Hill. "Blue-eyed Bill" Sheehan, Edward Murphy, Ciov. Flower, Croker and McLauehliu, and the kind of poli tics which they represent. The issue was plain, and the candidate embodied clearly and completely the political principles and practices of his backers. Maynard stood, as they have stood for eight years ni the htate, for criminal politics.— New York Post. The elections have given Mr. Cleve land a most impressive "object lesson," and his personal mortification must be great at the repudiation of his adminis tration by his own state. Disdaining to invite the trusted leaders of his party to liis counsels, he insulted men who carried him to victory, by assuming that there was no man among the Democracy fit to be secretary of state. Pleased to favor silver and to a statesmanlike re vision of the tariff, he destroyed the white metal and ignored tarili revision. —Los Angeles Herald. If the results of the great political landslide of Tuesday demonstrate one thing more than another it is that when really ureat economic interests are in volved in a contest the merely partisan yoke hangs loosely around the public neck. Thousands ol Republicans voted the Democratic ticket a year ago in the belief that the times were propitious for a change. This year thousands of Democrats cast off their partisan alleg iance and supported the n.en and meas ures of the Republicans.— Washington Post. By a majority certainly large enough for all practical purposes Mr. Mclvinley succeeds himself as governor of Ohio. To those closely in touch with events in the Ohio campaign this is not a sur prise. While the vote eiven Mi. Mc- Kinley by no means indicates either personal or party strength in more stirring political times to come, it is patent that Ohio has just been the held of a preliminary presidential skirmish. A plan to t'lat effect was long ago mapped out, and circumstances have conspired to render it apparently suc cessful.—Cleveland Plaindealer. The sweeping victories achieved by the Republican party yesterday can only be construed as an overwhelming popular condemnation of the adminis tration of President Cleveland and its policies regarding the tariff, finance and other momentous public questions. It is ditticuit to say what figure the silvei question cut in yesterday's elections. Certainly the record made by President Cleveland and a Democratic congress iv favor of the complete degradation of the wiiite metal received no indorsement in any of tiie states named.— Denver Re publican. The Democratic party has heard from the people once more, and the message is a .plain one. Tii« people who voted for Cleveland because they wanted tariff reform have shown their disapproval of his neglect to carry out his platform pledges and the people* who want the old order maintained have gained heart by the president's cowardice. The friends ol bimetallism have resented Cleveland's domineering policy, and the masses have shown that, though the classes may have the ear of the public, the peo pie have the votes.— San Francisco Ex aminer. The overwhelming defeat of the Dem ocratic party in local and state elections throughout the Morth is an event ol great political importance and sig nificance. It means the repudiation ol President Cleveland and his party. II means a reversal of the blunder of 1892. It means that the American people have been misrepresented when they nave been charged with having indorsed Dem ocratic-English free trade. It means that the heart of the North is still In sym pathy with the American policy repre> sented by tiie Republican party.— San Francisco Chronicle. AUTO BOOK CONCERN. Ihe Latest Marvel in the Manu- I'netiire ol' Books. We have received a letter from Mural Ilalstead, calling intention to the Autc Book Concern, a corporation of winch he has, after investigation and consid eration, accepted the presidency, sup ported by a board of directors embracing names of the highest distinction, and whose prospectus will be found in our advertising columns. The foundation of the new company is the ownership of thu patents of machines that are revolution ary in book manufacture, and a vast store of plates of standard and popular works. The patented machines are binders and trimmers, whose automatic perfection names them and the com pany. The felicitous combination of the Auto machines and the plates makes confident promises of grrat results, giving cheap circulation for literature as the perfected presses have to news. This opens an immense and lucrative field of usefulness. Mr. Ilalstead in forms us it is the intention of the com pany to issue libraries (.to be known as A, B, C libraries) ol the very best books for the masses at extremely low prices, as well as series of A, b, C school books, that will equal in merit those now in use, with a material reduction in prices. LOST SIXTY MEN. Explosion of Powder Causes a Heavy Loss Among the Kebels. New York, Nov. B.— The Herald has a communication from the Brazilian minister of foreign affairs, which con tains the following: A second powder magazine of the rebels on Gov ernor's island, occupied by them, containing more than 200 tons of powder, exploded while they were transferring the powder to the'vessels. The rebels lost sixty men and some small sliips, tlieir officers beina wound ed. Two officers and sailors of Die British squadron were also killed. They were at vie time in the neighborhood of the magazine. It is believed that th« explosion was caused by the careless ness of the rebels. Jiictiieroy is daily bombarded by the rebels, whose efforts to Jaud are al ways repulsed. The fortress of VilJegagnou is very mur.Ji battered, and answers with little energy to the fire of Uie loyal forces. Three columns of the ariuy/in combination with tiie vessels of the navy that remain loyal, with en forced marches, have been dispatched to recapt vie the island uf Santa Cath arine.
