O. P? To date the democrats have had much the best of the republicans in the number of party chances among prominent men. These changes are a fiat ure of every campaign and usually indicate the feel in. u of the people pi-n-t rally, which in this ease means that .ludt;e Parker will be elected. por the first time in half a emtury there is not a single orator in the cab inet.

The Host on Herald does not take a very cheerful vi w of the fiovernm nt's financial outlook. Iiepuhlican man-apeii-.eju seems to have put ;be treas ury in a very bad way. The deficit -outi::::e roll up a balance on the vrrons side of the ledger. A'lsais? shows an excess of expemlit ur. s over receipts amounting to r.ot far from $7, 00 "'". This, taken in conr.ee: ion Tvith the deficit shown in July, will make a total deficit of more than $2'j,()'n.f(( for the first two months of the current fiscal year. The receipts for August were lighter than those of the same months of either of the two preceding years. This decline, says the Herald, has come very largely through the falling off in th imports of flntiable goods, while our imports of iroods on the free list has advanced. In more than one instance, the Ding ley rates of duty arc practically pro hibitive that is. they are so high that, instead of turning in a very large amount of revenue, they produce but a small amount of income for the treasury, owing to the limited amount imported. While the revenue last month fell far below the level for the month of August, in either lf"i" or la":.', the expenditures have advanced enormously. The gain over the ex penditures for August last year is IS per cent, an increase of about one fifth, and yet we suppose the republi cans wiil say that the population of the country has increased, therefore the epeud it tires must also increase; and a leading republican organ like the New York Tribune will welcome this as another step toward the two billion mark in congressional expendi tures. The country is at peace, t he-re has been no material ehnnsre in the conditions, as far as the country itself is concerned, from what ruled in Aug-u.-t of !'.":; and 1!"-. and yet national expenditures have advanced by almost one-fifth in a single year. On any such ratio of progression ns that our na tional expondiiures would double even their present fisrure inside of five years. Lven with such a condition to be con sidered, the republican party and the present administration have as yet made no declaration in favor of either economy or retrenchment. Thoe words evidently d not appear in their vocabulary. They welcome extrava gance, as they think it insures the re tention of a very hii;.h tariff. The Democratic Campaign Text Book Advance pages of the democratic campaign text-book furnish in compre hensive, an I exhaustive form t''e issues upon which the campaign " to be waged, making the tariff and n s'fyter- ing influence upon the trusts "ra- moiiiii. If is not necessary to c'A'bc- yotid the last public utterance of the lamented President McKinley. who was the father of the protective- system, jo inderstand to what degree republi cans themselves have come to realize the abuses that have grown up under tariff customs no longer essential to he country's industrial development. Other republican lender. and states men of renown have sounded an tin- ceded warning to their party, which persisting in its stand-pat policy, at the behest of the combinations of wealth. has failed to modify the existing tar- ffs. with the result that a confirmation by t In - people (.f the republican, plat form can only be taken as a confirma tion of the policy of government under which trusts have sprung into exist ence- and are being daily more encour aged and aided. There is an abundance- of other is iies which are logically a part of the campaign from the democratic stand point, the history of the present ad ministration, brief though its reign has been, affording in itself a subject to which the attention of the thinking people of i ho land may well be intel liirenily drawn. Happily the f ranters of the text book, while making this point plain, have. in adopting the position of the party standard bearer, avoided personaliiie-s as far as the re publican candidate is concerned, a mark of decency that was so conspicu ously lacking in the republican text book in dealing with the democratic nominee. Local Interest in the Cause. The- interest manifested in the speeches attending the de-mocratic liag raising Saturday night afforded a healthful evidence ef the political sit uation, locally speaking. Notwith standing the' threatening weather and the rainfall at the outse-t of the? pro ceedings. peep!e in large' numbers stood about the bandstand in Market square- and listem-d attentively to the aihlresse-s oil tl'.e is.-ues of the' day. and it was quite- apparent that the assem blage would have- remained longe-r had there been more to say. A republican who spoke on the occasion ef the- mee-t-mu of his ecvn party he-Id at a similar 'vent, admitted, not only that the dem ocrats had the large r crenvd de spite the ineh meuT tiiht. but that more inter est w as shown.
