Thk Chicago Tribune gees back to
U<e election of 1840 to find the historic
parallel for the election of '94. As a
landslide merely—a blind, unreasoning,
anthinkine rush of opposition—the par
allel is complete. The parallel will find
Its further justification in the speedy
regm and repentance of the voters, anil
the return of the Democratic party to
Tiiosk voters who regretted . the
»ii;wigw lor which they voted two ami
four •; years. asr«, and voted j for a whirl
back to the former condition, will read
with consternation the declaration of
the. Pioneer Press that the Republican
party proposes to do nothing except to
hold and execute the laws that a Demo
cratic congress has mnde. In another
two years tin* people will be in a condi
tion to commission the Democratic party
to execute mure laws.
Senator Washburn Is in treat danirer.
The Pioneer Press has declared its uu
dyiugsupport a«td unqualified allegiance
to his cause, and stated that he "does
not teem to have any opuosition, and
that there is no reason why he should
have any. We may take his election as
a foregone conclusion," observes the
Unless the Pioneer breaks a record
that comes down through the years,
this may be taken as a sure indication
of an overwhelming defeat for the Min
neapolis senator. The same organ
found no opposition to Mr. Liahtner in
the Seventh ward, but Warner carried
the primaries and the election. Wash
burn is in danger.
The Republicans will find no obstrep
erous minority in their way this wiuler
to prevent them from doiim as thuy will
in the legislature. They have both
houses and every branch of the govern
ment by a majority that is powerful
enough to hold any element in check
that may wish to work mischief.
A* the Republican platform pledged
the pan v to the passage of the measure
providing tor the taxation of railroad
lauds, we expect to see this passed, and
hope that the railroads will not be as
successful this winter as they were in
(J3. The Democratic platform was also
emphatic in its demand for this act of
simple justice to the residents of the
frontier comities, and the members of
that party will feel bound to assist in its
passage. The bill of the last session is
good enough and safe enough, It was
thoroughly debated, and should .be
simply reiinroduced and passed.
Another law which we hope to see
enacted is one regulating primary elec
tions. It was a tactical mi.-take in the
session of. ism to separate the primary
law from the general election law. 'flic
members whose only chance of tretting
into the legislature lay in their abil
ity to manipulate primaries, and who
would not have dared to oppose the
primary law if incorporated in the gen
eral bill, seized their opportunity to kill
it when it appeared alone and without
the support of its powerful companion.
Another matter that should have at
tention is the removal of the absurd,
cumbersome and litigation-breeding real
e.staia transfer laws and the substitution
of methods akin to those in use in the*
Canadian and other English provinces.
Transfers of real estate should be no
more complex or difficult than are those
of personal property. It is as absurd that
a purchaser of land should feel obli
gated to trace his title back by- consecu
tive and legal conveyances to the
United Slates as it would be that the
buyer of a horse should have to run
back the chain of ownership by suc
cessive links to the captor of the wild
ancestor of his intended purchase. That
possession of realty that now carries
with it a presumption of ownership
should be made to need no further au
thentication than the possession of the
deed of the last gran tor. There is a fine
field here for some one to associate his
name with a measure of great public
utility, and, if lit* can, score a triumph
over the lawyers., who may be expected
to oppose it vigorously.
Largest in the world—the Cream of
Tartar factory controlled by tin; Price
Baking l'uwder Company.
Just how potential the vote was of
the unthinking, unreasoning class, who
cast their votes against the Democratic
party because they believed tiiat it was
responsible for tiie panic of 18'J3 and me
resulting hard times, is one of the fac
tors of the recent eieclioa which it is
impossible to accurately ascertain.
That it was a factor Is certain, but that
it was not the principal one we ar>*
fully convinced, lv fact,we believe that,
had the panic not occurred, the result
would have been the same, though the
majorities might not have been so large.
No accurate conclusion can be readied
as to the causes which resulted in the
great overthrow this year which does
not take into account the political his
tory of receu*, years. That like causes
produce like effects is as true in politics
as in nature. Although Mr. Tilden in
1876 had pointed out the path of duty of
his party and directed it in that path,
it was reserved for Mr. Cleveland in
1887 to give it the final marching orders.
His famous message awoke the atten
tion of the party, and gave to the party
a cause and to a cause a great paity.
In the camuaien of 1888 the Republic
ans admitted the necessity of revising
the tariff, Out everywhere insisted that
it should be revised by its friends and
not by its enemies. The promise, either
express or implied, was that they would
give the country a reduction of taxa
As in every election, minor causes
came in to contribute to the general re
sult, but the chief cause leading to the
restoration of Republicanism in 1888
was its promise to revise the tariff, and
the general expectation that it wouid
be in the direction of reduction. lu
stead of that, it took a longer step in
the direction of protection than any
party had ever taken before in this
country, instead of reducing, it ad
vanced taxation, and declared its pur
pose to be "protection for protection's
sake." It did not keep its faith with
the people, and the people rewarded it
iv the elections of '90 and '92 with a re
buff only equaled by that giveu the
Democratic party in 1894.
The Democrats came into power in
1892 on the distinct pledge to the people
to eliminate prolectiou from the fiscal
policy of th« country aud- to
return to a simple revenue sys
tem of taxation. They did not
keep that pledge. The bill formulated
by the house was admittedly protective;
the bill that came from the senate was
more distinctively so. This was not
purposely done, it was not because the
party approved of the policy of protec
tion, but it was ao involuntary conces
sion to the protectionist element in the
The public does not deal in nice dis
criminations. It sees the promise and
it sees the result, it saw promises
made and promises unredeemed. The
party did not give it what it had prom
ised. It turned it out of power as ruth
lessly and as emphatically as it ousted
the Republicans for similar causes in
1890 and '93. The elections since 1888
should teach the politicians of all par
ties that the people of this country are
in no humor to excuse or condone or
palliate the failure to carry out the pol
icy on which the party was intrusted
with power. We are of the opinion now
'.hat we were when we said that the
vital error of the Wilson bill was the
admission of the principle of protection
in it. We are confident that, had the
platform of Chicago been carried into
■•'!i ct.ihe vote of the want of confidence
cast last Tuesday would not have been
recorded. Men learn by their mistakes,
and patties may. If men do not learn,
and persist in repeating their mistakes,
they must suffer the consequences. We
know no reason why the same rule
should not apply to parties.
Marcus Daly is a MM of great wealth,
and has a fecundity of resource that is
amazing. Not content with havine the
linest stud in the country and the rich
est coppt-r mine in the world, ha wanted
to annex the capital to his mining camp
of AnacondH. He went about it method
ically. He brought lo ihe task all the
resources of his fertile mind. He in
vested in newspaper plants all over the
state, lie engaged the brightest talent
of the press. It displayed itself in no
case so adroitly hh it did in a table
showing the number of articles of lux
ury in the two cities; the number of
persons wearing silk hats in Anaconda
and in Helena, for instance, the former
having none and ihe huter thousands.
Another cute device to avoid the
charge of bribing voters was the sale of
lithographed certiticatesfor U each that
Daly would pay the bearer $5U iv the
event of the removal of the capital from
Helena, if he lost, he was several
lliou-aml dollars in, and if he won he
expected to recoup iv a land boom the
$4.) he was out on «ach certificate. But
Marcus lost; the capital will remain iv
Helena; and common sense beats money
again. This is another of the instances
that prove that the Australian system
of elections has deprived mouey of the
larger part of its power.
Stephkn B. Ei.kixs will bo the first

men of marked ability. Money and
nerve go a long way in (.1. O. P. circles.

Nat 0. Goodwin. presented at the Met
ropolitan: last night his latest wink,
•David G;urleU," and achieved for
himself a signal success. "David Gar
r'tck" is not a very old or very great
play, but is old enough to have reetiived
ihe approval of one generation, and
.Treat, enough to have enlisted the West
lii 10 talent of the age. Originally
written for the elder Sothern, It com
wines the comic "and" the serious in such;
wise as to be o lit of reach of all but the
broadest art. Mr. Goodwin established
his reputation as a light comedian, and
he will never cease to be delightful
in .that linn of work, but he has now
"given evidence of depths of sensibility
and power, yet unsounded. To be more
specific concerning Mr. Goodwill's Im
personation of David G.trrL'k, the first
act. wherein he appears in a, most be
coming terra-coita costume, is con
ducted on his pan with dignity and
.grace altogether charmli.K.- rits enact
nfVnt of mock drunkenness is no less
nJArveloiis. The comicality— out of his
ontwiild demonstration, combined"' with
tire occasional suggestion 01 mental suf
fering—the sudden burst of emulative
passion, as fur the moment, under Ada's
rebuke he forgets alh but his glorious
art. the recollection of his row under
Ingot's reminder,- and consequent
relapse into maudlin drunken
ness, the ■ tlnal - spasmodic exit,
are all the work of genius.' In the last
act Garrick's speech to Ada; telling her
to return her father, is one which can
only be relieved of stilled prudery by
the utmost simplicity and earnestness
of manner. Mr. Goodwin's simplicity
is perfect, and the speech, as he ren
ders it. is very affecting. The natural
ness ' • <if the closing scene, and Mr.
Goodwin's delicacy and reserve, as at last
air acknowledged lover, cannot be too
highly commended. The work of Mr.
Goodwin's company is fully adequate,
and the stage settings the finest seen in
St. Paul for many a.day. The pro
gram closes with "Lend Me Five
Shillings," aud it was well worth while
waiting to see Mr. Goodwin fly to the
I other extreme of his art in this one-act
[ comedy. The two plays will :be pre
sented at both the. matinee aud evening
performance, when Mr. Goodwin will
bid farewell to St. Paul for some
months. Such a treat will not be had
by our theater-loving people again this
season, and none should miss this op
portunity. *

American people to do a tiling it must
take them at their .word ami do that
Uiing thoroughly and promptly, or it
will be punished. - That is something
that timid and half-hearted Democratic
leaders .may learn from the result of
Tuesday elections.---Chicako Herald. [ "
Let us look forward, not back, tiu and
not down, and lend all a hand to re cu
ing the nation from the threatened re
turn to power of the party which has
ever insolently used its power for th»
fattening ot trusts, the advantage of
monopolies, and the invasion of the
rights of tne individual citizen.—Chi
cago Times.
The people should not be too harshly
censured for their verdict of Tuesday*;
it was one for which they had apparent
cause, and it is one which they are
certain to regret in time. Let us treat
the people justly and await that time
in the confidence which belongs to a
noble cause, the cause of the people.—
Milwaukee Journal.
Besides, if onu-half of what the suc
cessful ones have said of themselves and
their aims during the recent canvass is
true, we may safely rely upon living
under a perfectly ideal government
while they remain in office. The result
is not. as every one admits, a triumph
of Repuolicanistu so much as a revolt
of Democrats.—Northwestern Chronicle.
The simple explanation of the election
yesterday is in the fact that with Demo
cratic rule came financial disturbance
and industrial paralysis, and hungry or
distressed men are not prepared for the
relinement of argumentation that seeks
to place the responsibility anywhere
outside of tho party in power.—Phila
delphia Times.
There is no doubt that yesterday's
results are due to Democrats who
wished to discipline their party leaders.
The Democratic patty of me future
will be a far better part}- because of
the action of the Democrats who in be
half of party principle arrayed them
selves against parly bosses who had be
trayed or abandoned principle.—New
York World.
: It will put us upon our mettle: it
menus hard work; it means work be
tween elections; it means a demand for
the- brainiest leadership. The people
must be taken into account, It will be
found that the Democratic party will
stand by its great issue of tariff reform.
It will show -by its faith, and in other
ways, what it leally is—the party of the
people, not of any faction of the people,
hut of the whole people. No party since
the war has been on as high ground as
the Democratic party i.i on today, and
its going to prove this in defeat.—
Franklin MacVeagh.
— - -
The disaster that overtook the Demo
cratic party yesterday was not unex
pected. In its general aspects it was
the logical result of the solemn pledges
of the party. The people in a case like
this cannot or will not discriminate be
tween the innocent aud the guilty.
The/ judge a party by its record, and
do not accept any plea of good inten
tions. Moreover, though the mills of
the gods grind slowly, thu mills of pop
ular wrath and iudiguation grind ex
ceedingly fast.—Baltimore Sun.
I But, though the logic of the ballot
may halt, its lessen is not to be mis
taken. The party which took possession
of the government in March, 1803, had a
sincere popular sentiment to back it; it
allowed that sentiment to be b»ffied and
Betrayed, and it is rebuked in the only
way open to the voters by the accession
mt the rival party. The real sentiment
.Of the people has not chaugvl. If the
shows itself capable of redeeming
its blunders and purging its organiza
tion so as to become again a trustworthy
instrument for its professed purpose, it
will be taken, if not, it will be wholly
thrown aside.—New York Times.
The defeat of Congressman Tom L.
Johnson in the Cleveland. 0., district is
a great ioss to the Democratic party.
Mr. Johnson, by his rare courage iv
preaching free trade and Democracy
undented, has twice overcome large Re
publican majorities in a district where
protected monopolies have a tremen
dous power. Senator Brice, Democratic
traitor, came to the aid of Republicans
in the last campaign, and the result is
that Johnson is temporarily shelved.
Democrats of the Johnson order, how
ever, cauuot be suppressed by either

cises the Result.
Washington, Not. 9.-Hon. William
D. Byuum, or Indiana.'arrived in the
city today. When asked for his opinion
of the cause of hi.* own and hie* parly's
defeat in the ' election, he said: "It is
absurd to attribute such a revolution to
a change in the minds of the people
upon political questions. Upon ques
tions of principle such sudden and rad
ical changes do not take place. The
anti-tree silver and conservative tariff
representatives, as well as the advo
cates of free coinage and a radical re
vision or the tariff, went down alike
before the same irresistible influence.
The result was not an acceptation or
the principles and policies of the Re
publican party.
"Every person who has observed the
condition of public sentiment for the
last few years has noted the restlessness .
upon the part of the great masses of the
people and a disposition to hold the
party in power responsible for the mis
fortune that has now visited upon us.
We have had many peaceful revolu
tions within the last ten years, and we
may congratulate ourselves that the dis
satisfied elements have, thus far, been
content with their efforts to strike down
the ruling party. Within four years
they have twice dethroned the Repub
lican and once the Democratic party.
To say that the people are so fickle
mitided upon questions upon which the
two great Dailies have divided from the
foundation of the government is ridicu
lous- The result on Tuesday last was
only another but still more striking ex
hibition of the deep dissatisfaction
which has been growing: in the minds of
the people for some years and which,
up to the present time, has been con
tent to strike down the party in pewer.
"The- Republican party, when clothed
wiih full responsibility, will, unless
there is a radical-change in conditions,
meet with the same fate. These sud
den and overwhelming changes are
evidences of a demoral.zed, if not dis
eased, public mind that does not augur
well for the stability of any policy or
for the prosperity of the country.

Altgelu was asked today for his opinion
regarding the election. The governor
'•The result is not due to local causes.
The causes that produced it operated
all over the country. MM 1 think were
largely due to widespread dissatisfac
tion with the course pursued by the
federal administration. It first wore,
out the patience and destroyed the
confidence of business interests, and
then turned rouud and literally drove
away those men who to I with their
hands. Jti the spring of 1593 President
Cleveland was urged to convene cou
sress at once for the purpose of con
sidering the taritf question. At that
time a fair taiifi reform bill could
have been passed in six weeks. The
country had spoken upon the subject;
the sentiment of the American people
was nearly unanimous, and even the
corrupting agents of protected monop
olies were ready to surrender. Had
this course been taken, the great busi
ness and manufacturing interests of the
country would at oucu have adjusted
themselves to the uew conditions and
gone to work; the country would have
again settled down, and there would
have been no tariff discussion tiiis cam -
oaign. luit instead of listening to the
voice of the American people, Cleve
land was accessible only to foreign and
Eastern money manipulators. The re
suit was that conditions growing out of
the panic were intensified and ttie busi
ness and manufacturing interests of the
country were practically kept at a stand
still for eighteen months, during whicii
time tdousands of laborers were com
pelled to beg bread. The result was not
only dissatisfaction, but disgust. Never
before in the Imtory of the republic have
such gigantic blunders been committed
by a president.
'•While these causes did not produce
the conditions which gave rise to the
great coal strike and great railroad
strikes last summer, they did intensity
these conditions, in fact, there is douht
whether we would have had either
strike if the tar hi question had been
settled in the spring of IS-33. After hav
ing helped to produce these great dis
turbances the federal administration
turned its face against the great labor
ing classes of the country ami placed
all the powers of government under the
control of- corporations, lit Chicago
durihg the railroad strike, before any
rioting or destruction of, property, and
before anything happeued to indicate
that the local authorities could not
maintain law and order, and be
fore the state authorities were asked
for assistance, the federal govern
ment, violating the constitution and
principles of local self-government
which the Democratic party had advo
cated tor a hundred years, interfered,
both through the federal judiciary mul
by the use of federal troops. This by
direction of attorney general and presi
dent. The country soon discovered that
it had a corporation lawyer for attorney
general, and although there was in Chi
cago complete machinery for the ad
ministration of justice, yet so eager
were the federal authorities to servo
corporations that the usual machinery
of justice in Chicago wast not trusted.
A special representative was appointed
to directly represent the government as
prosecutor, and the county was amazed
at the selection made. The administra
tion selected not only a Republican, but
one of the most piominent corpora
tion Ujryers of the country, and who
was attorney for some railroads in-
Tolvediu the strike, and had, therefore,
direct personal interest iv the out
come. Yet he was put in charga of the
machinery of justice, and brought to the
service of his clients, without any ex
pense to them, United states marshals,
giand juries, courts and army. All this
under an administration that had been
placed in power by the Democratic
party. Hunureds of honest and in
dustrious men who bad violated no
statute and transgressed no law were
thrown into on a mere charge of
being guilty of contempt of court, and
the tolling masses became alarmed, not
simply for their material welfare, Wut
Tor the liberty of themselves and chil
dren, and seized the first opportunity to
deliver a body blow to au administr*
tion which was fraudulently claiming:
lo be Democratic, while violating every
rule and principle of Democracy. They
joined hands with the dissatisfied busi
ness men. and the result is uuiveral
disaster to a uarty which has been
twice deceived and twice betrayed by
one man. It had the misfortune to be
stricken by the man to whom it handed
the sword.' '

Bai.timokk, Nov. .9.-Senator Arthur
P. Gorman was seen at his house near
Laurel yesterday by a representative of
the American Union: The senator is
improving in health and was in good
spirits. Lie said..when asked as to the
causes of the Democratic defeat, that
he had not been paying .any attention
to politics since the adjournment of 'lie
senate, but that he had been, devoting
the time to -getting well, and was in
much better condition than he had been
for some time. He said that the causes
of the defeat were various, and it was
hard to tell what particular thins; was
most to blame. He said that in politics,
as in battle, men run for uo particu
lar cause. In some cases the
cause was a local one and " not due to
anything the Democratic party had
done. The causes which existed in 1892,
when the Republicans were defeated,
continued now,whatever they were and
the Democratic party was suffering from
the action of th« people just as the Re
publicans had done at that election. He
did not think that the defeat of the De
mocratic party would be lasting, but
that everything would be all right after
awhile. The senator does not seem to
be very much depressed with the re
sult, beleiviug it only temporary.
Senator Übarlm H. Gibson called at

Wichita, Kan.. Nov. 9.—Speaking of
the election, Mrs. Mary Lease said to
day : "The defeat of the People's party
in Kansas is due largely to the disgrace
ful compromise with Democracy two
years ago and to the treachery perpe
trated upon the people by the election
of John Martin. 1 believe (Joy. Lew

to serve his own selfish ends, sacrificed
the Head of the ticket by endeavoring
to fuse in legislative and congressional

crazy, irresponsible, seeking-for-noto
riety woman accepted Republican pay
to foist her peculiar views upon the
.Populist- convention. When we get
ready for a constitutional amendment
in this slate our people will look after
it successfully." Here Mrs. Lease took
a shot at Anna Diggs by adding: "In

Paris, Nov. 9.—Samuel E. Morse, the
United States consul, in an interview
in regard to the elections just held in
the United Stales, is quoted as saying:
"1 anticipated the Democratic defeat,
although 1 hoped it would not be so
sweeping. Ido not believe that the re
sult means Republican restoration to
power in 18! it is a mere temporary
upheaval, and nut a permanent revolu
tion. The principal cause of the disas
ter is the great financial panic of 1898,
which has not yet spent its force, and
for which the party in power has un
justly been l>elu .responsible. This has
always been the case from the founda
tion of government with a new domi
nant power. In every instance the lat
ter hus lost elections occurring immedi
ately after a financial crisis. The first
congressional elections following a gen
eral tariff revision have also invariably
been lost by the party responsible.
"1 believe that the recent panic was
partly due to natural causes, but it was
due in the 'greater part to Republican
class legislation and maladministration.
The country is now entering upon a
career of prosperity. The new tariff
will give general satisfaction, and the
Democratic party will enter the next
presidential campaign with the chances
of success very largely in its favor."

against the pernicious doctrine or free
trade, and 1 don't think you will see
another party inscribing itou its banner
in a future caiupaigti.
"We are going to have quiet for the
next twoi-ears. There is not a work
ingmau or manufacturer who has the
least fear that after March 4 any de
structive, measure will be enacted tor
the uext two yeais. The Democrats

that they are free bum further dauger

iuturo policy may be, William Mc-
Kiuiey, in on« position or anothar,
will have soinetnius to do about it.
There is nothing but McKinleyism in

Senator Lodge said: "One of the
causes of the Republican victory was
that the American people were tired of
beinis deceived. The Democrats made
every promise in every district of the
country to caiu their end.. Their defeat
is a just resentment of the people who
were taken in."
Coneressnian-elect Barrett said that
not bince 18-20, wiien only one candidate
for the presidency was in the field, hits
there been such unanimity of opinion,
which renders the present domination
of Kcpublicanism only more emphatic.
