The Ih-mocra'ic pnrty was <rjilit in

to win a victory that would not have

being considerably below the registra
tion, which in turn was over -2,000 short
ot that of last spring.
The Democrats had almost no organ
ization, and a very meager fund for
necessary and legitimate expenres. The
League clubs served the Republican
party well in effecting an organization.
Tue Populists were well organized, and
were thus able to make heavy inroads
into the Democratic party.
The fault of tin* Democrat? was not in
failure to have a fend ticket, but lack of
organization and ability to hold the
parly in line.and to gel out the lull vote.
The Republican* expended money
freely within their own lines, and in
bolstering up the Populists,

A conservative colored man was
asked yesterday bow the colored v;;e
was going, lie replied: "It is badly
split. The McUhee element is kuhiug
t'i:apel right and left, and about every
colored voter is turning JJaziile down."
Aside From lhese It Was a Quiet
k: lection.
It was unusually quiet about the poll
tog places yesterday. Oa St. Anthony
bill it was as calm as a Saobath, m» the
Koudostreet polic said. Up to tip. m.
the police had made only two arrests for
disorderly conduct at or near the polls.
One occurred in the Sixth ward and the
Mber in the Fifth ward. In the Third
precinct off the Sixth ward Allen McCali,
a railroad braketuan, was arrested
about sp. m. by Officer Griffin, of the
Ducas Htrect station, for making too
much noise and for interfering with the
judges of election at the polling place.
At least, that is tde charge preferred by
the officer. At the Ducas street Matin
Air. Met'all gave *, jr> bail arid departed.
1 lie other ca^e was that of John Ki:
cere, who did consiueiable shouting
around the vuting place of the Tenth
mecinct of the Filth ward. Kuc*re
was lodged in the central station. Aside
from these two disturbances, no trouble
was reported.
Hepublicars AiaJe iheir Throats
With bated breath tho crowds
gathered on Fourth street at an early
hour last night, until. Iron, the corner
of Cedar down to the corner of Hubert,
there was one black, moving:, surging
mass of humanity. These were in the
vicinity of the uewspaoer offices. Aii
other matters were forgotten; interest
alone centered upon the returns re
flected upon canvas with steropticons.
In the editorial rooms of the GLOBE
busy brains and busier haucis labored
ail through the night, drawing order out
of the confusing chaos of figures. Rap
icily did the flood of figures pour in
from the precincts of the various wards,
but so perfect was the system adopted
that there was but little chance for er
ror, it seemed as though the end
would never come, but come it did in
due course of time. As rapidly as deft
rineers could do the work the bulletins
weie prepared, taken to the business
office below, and a moment later the
titrures were Hashed upon the tightly
drawn canvas.

evidently appreciating that all things
come to them that wait. When bulletin
after bulletin appeared, all telling the
tale that the Republicans were having
nearly everything their own way. those
of that stripe went wild with enthus
iasm. With that sturdy spiiit of manli
ness characteristic of all true Demo
crats, be it said to their credit, they
stood the test like men. Of course it
was not the most inspiring tiling in the
world to see defeat written in the tell
tale characters on Ihe canvas. Demo
crats stood shoulder to shoulder with
Republicans and good-naturedly smiled.
11 there are not a srreat many Repub
lican sore throats this morning from
frequent yells, it is certainly strange.
It is evidently not a good year for
Prohibitionists. To be sure, occasional
ly there were a few figures—very little
ones, by the way-showing that the cold
water party had ventured out in the
mad storm of ballots upon the sea of
chance, only to become swallowed up
by the resistless waves. Their little
shallop stood uo chance against such
heavy odds.
The People's Party Vote
was a surprise. Many had under
estimated its slrer.gth. The labor ele

one—went almost solidly for Owen.
Many consider that this vote, was large

Sketch of the Inside of Newspa
per Work.
At the rooms of the City Press asso
ciation on the ground floor of the Ger
uiania Life building, there was an im
niense circular table, a verifiable King
Arthur round table. Here four knights
of the quili, sworn to the interests ot
the leading dailies, held high carnival
during the midnight hours. A box of
cigarettes look the place of the wassail
bowl, and the board was garnished
with cedar pencils and election
blanks. But for their chivalrous devo
tion to their mathematical reast, how
ever, the public would not know this
morning whether (o lament or rejoice,
to promise the wife of their bosom that
essential hat, that necessary gown, or
to state emphatically that the family
expenses have been increasing of late
at an alarroiug rate, and that they
didn't have any money to spend on fool
ishness. Innumerable boys had been fur
nished with printed blanks in which the
judges of election were requested to
note the detailed vote of their precinct.
Upon receiving these delightful billets
doux for the coy lovers of political
beauty, the freekel-faced Cupids tried
each to outspeed the other arriving first
at the association headquarters. On
foot, on horseback, per bicycle, per
street car. per everything but lying
machine, they came from every quarter.
The figures when received men dictat

the hotels, the candidate rooms, the
committee headquarters were besieged
by interested or merely curious in
quirers, who could learn but little, the
fountain source oi electoral advices was
undisturbed. This will be the more
aggravating to Ike anxious officeholder,
the solicitous candidate, when he leaCM
this tilllliat that the returns were tirst

Hashed on their vision when they hoped
to see election figures, did not
disrearten them. Occasionally a rough
ly executed picture would be thrown on
the sheet oy way of variety. One or.
these represented Pierce Butler, attired
like a sailor, standing upright in a
storrn-tcssed boat. This seemed to
cheer the heaits of his many admirers.
At 1 o'clock the great morning dailies
went out of the magic lantern business,
:wid the gates of snow begun falling.
The streets were soon covered with tne
pure while covering, concealing the
i>lack pavements under a blanket of
white. Then the multitude dispersed
and went their ways.
.Til through tiie evening the telephone
in the (Ji.obk editorial room kept up an
almost continuous jingie, and inquiries
poured in thick and last. People wanted
to know how this candidate or that
stood. Nor was this all. Ail through
the night people whose anxiety or curi
osity would not permit them to sleep
iiied singly or in throngs through the
GLOBE editorial rooms Lent on intoim i

upon as a veritable cyclopuKlia of sta
tistical and political lore.
One rather amusing incident occurred
early in the evening. A sturdy old Dem
ocrat stated at the figures showing Nel
son's surprising gains. As the figures
kept piling uu (the wrong way for him)
lie kept getting madder. The cheers of
the N«.ison sup&otterodid not serve to
pacify him, eil'.ier, and he veiled out in
defiance: "1 shall continue so long as

I'll vote it anyway, even if 1 am the
last man on earth to do it. I'll vole it,
even though I iiave to vote it alone."

An Indian With the Power of Dis-
tending Himseli'.
San Francisco Chronicle.
ban Jacinto has a first-class sensation
in the person of a big Indian named
Eduardo Guata, who lives across the
river in the famous village of Saboba.
E'luardo's peculiarity is that he has tiie
power of distending himself at will to
most enormous dimensions. When Ed
uardo has been persuaded to give an
exhibition of his expansive properties
lie arranses for it wiih ail due solem
nity and dimity. He loosens his over
alls, unbuckles his suspenders, shakes
out a reef or two in his shirt, takes a
last look at the world, and si«its in to
pumo hin»elf full of aUnosoher*.
It is a sight to see him swell <:p.
Bduardo is mi sprinter to begin witii,
but when he has successfully engulfed
a tubful or two of air he woulci put
Graver Cleveland to the blush. He
keeps on bravsly until the spectators
get nervous with the momentary ex
pectatiou of an explosion. Just as the
suspense becomes unbearable Eduardo
ceases and displays his person proudly
to the assembled throng. We have oniy
one tape line, so haven't tried to meas
ure him when inflated, but his circum
ference is something appalling. When
Eduardo wishes to reduce himself he
merely makes some mysterious folding
motions of his arms and shoulders, when

Water and Germs.
It is pretty well established now that
water, so far from generating malaria,
may really prevent its polluting the at
mosphere. The germ may grow in soil
even slightly moist, but a thin layer of
water evenly distributed over such soil
may prevent the escaDe of the germ
into the atmosphere, lv the same way
a thick growth of grass with matted
roots may be impervious to (be germ,
and keep it beneath the surface, where
it can do no harm.
