TIIK CONTEST AT AI.HAN Y.
Tho latest nows from Albany Is about t'le same tlml wo gavo our romlcrs lust visck. Thu monotony of thu situation it gradually becoming exciting, but (Nevertheless thu contest lias boon going ,on tho past week with groat earnestness and wo must mill, groat bitterness. .Conkllng nnd his friends found It utter ly impracticable to secure or forco a (Caucus of tho Republican members of thc.I..csrlslnturo, and thus bring to bear the force of party dlsolpllno anil tactics to instiro them a triumph In a conteJt within tho pales of tho party. Admin istration .Republicans not unnaturally refused to go Into a oajuus for tho nom liitttlon of candlilatus fiitlr'biiator In tho face of tho patent fact that Mr. Conk ling would havu a majority, though, at best, barely u majority of the caucus, and could thuasoeuru his own return to tho seat which fiUd so recklessly and so foolishly vncalW. And thnn tlmt In, would make thatf return, thu ground of continuing tho war that ho had lnaut;ii rated upon tho Administration. Tho rcsulUof thu balloting on Tuesday Indi cate so far as they indicate anything, throo facts: 1. That Mr. Conkllng Is much weaker than his friends have Mtp posed having rjcolvcd but 20 rotes in tho llotiso nnd a in tho Senate. 2. That Mr. Plait has in fact no strength at all in the Senate, not having received a singlu vote in tho Scnato, on tho prop osltlon to fill his own vacancy; and 3. That tho Administration party nrp wholly unorganized, and have as yet eomo to no ogrocniunt whatever ns to candidates. Tho Demouraoy seem to have voted solidly both In the Senate and tho Houso for Mr. Jacobs and Kcrnan, two old lino Hourbons of con siderable ability. This fact however at this stage of tho struggle dignifies nothing, since it may moan cither that they propose to stick to tho end and If possible defeat any elections, or thoy may bo mossing their forces so na to be ready to tako any advantage that the complicated situation opens to them, cithor to secure by compromise, a Sena tor for themselves, or to so cast their votes as to Intensify tho struggle, and .widen the breach in the Republican paity. It Is idle for us to shut our eyes to the fact, however olso wo may differ in our judgment of the situation, that this is thu goUkn opportunity of tho Democracy. New York is, and mu.t continue to bo tho pivotal State. At tho last election, radical dis sensions in tho Democratic party gave the Stato to tho Republican party ; now equally radical and bitter dissensions in the Republican party threaten to giyc the Stato to tho Democratic party, and with it, in all human probability, tho control of tho country. Now York has become in fact tho Koystono Stale in American politics, nnd its politics arc, unfortunately, to nn extraordinary ex tent, personal nnd corporiilc. In no other Stato can nny singlo individual exert tho InOtiunco nnd wield thu powur which Mr. Conkllng has, unquestionably dono in New York. And on the ollim- hand, it must be added, that In no oth er State does such a corporate organi zation as Tammany Hall exist and con trol not muroly the politics of a great city but of tho Stato, nnd at tho samo tlmo exert o gravo an influence on tho polities of a nation. If tho recent struggles in tho Democratic party in New York should result in tho broak ing down of corporate political organi zations, liko Tammany Hall ; and those of tho Republican party should In like manner result in tho downfall of what may be termed the personal or "boss" system in politics, the country will bo tho gainer; Tub Ohio Stato Convention will be held to-day. It is generally conceded that Gov. Tostcr will bo rc-nominatcd. (Sen. Sherman will be prcssnt nnd de liver a speech.
