The eleclion of J. A. Mahrtney Indi
cates that the p'.-ojile of Grant county
are willing to have thecounty divided.
Tins Is the first Issue of the tenth
Volume of the Liheilai,. Fur nine
yeara It has labored for the advance
ment of the town, the county, the ter
ritory and of humanity. That it has
been entirely unsuccessful it is not
willing to claim.
On Novembers Mr. Jtryan sent the
following message to Major Mciviu
ley: "Senator Jones has Just Informed
me that the returns indicate your
election and 1 hasten to extend tuy
congratulations. We have submitted
the Issue to the American people and
their will is law."
The next morning Major McKinley
answered as follows: "I acknowledge
the receipt of your courteous message
of congratulation . with thuuks, aud
beg you will receive my best wishes
for your health and happiness."
These men are "all right "
REGARDING THE EETCENS.
Grant county has always been the
home of the independent voter. The
party cry could never carry a ticket
through. The vote of two years ao
Is a fair sample of the vole for many
years. Of the seventeen names on
the tickets eight republicans aud nine
democrats received pluralities, uo
more evco division could have been
made. The average plurality of the
eight republicans was 87 and of the
nine democrats was 10G. If the votes
had been evenly divided there would
have been a democratic plurality av
This year the returns are different
No republican received a majority of
the votes In Grant county. That the
Voters of the county arc still inde
pendent is shown by the d I (Terence In
the democratic majorities, running
from 052 for congressman to 41 for col
ector, the average being .150. Looking
over the majorities it will be seen
that they naturally form three groups,
viz: (1) The congressional ticket
with a majority of 'JÓ2. (2) The leg
islative ticket, with an average malor
HyofSOO, (3) The county ticket,
with an average majority of 2Ó8.
What do these differences signify,
and what caused them?
The trouble among Grant county
republicans Commenced before the
county convention last March and
nothing has happened since to lessen
the differences. The disgraceful
squabbles between would be leaders
has bad a continuous influence on the
campaign. Out this has not been the
At the Las Vegas convention the
mcti In power, hungry for the pie that
Major McKinley would cut, decided
on a practical endorsement of the St.
Louis platform. The delegates from
the south protested, saying that their
constituents had ever believed that
the republican party of the territory
bad always been in favor of free silver,
the delegates from Grant told the men
in power that the voters in this county
could not be herded to the polls like
Kheep and made to vole as directed.
The protests were unavailing, the
warnings were sneered at and the
gold plank was adopted. This re
sulted la every southern count giv
ing Fergusson a large majority and
The republicans of Grant, still be
lieving as they always have on the sil
ver question, expressed themselves in
no uncertain terms In their platform
The effect of this Is shown iu the re
mits. Of the 475 men w ho bad for
merly voted the republican ticket and
refused to do so this year, only 125 con
cluded to let the hide go willi the
horns, and voted the county demo
cratic ticket. The legislative ticket,
which stood partly on both platforms
was notas badly beaten as the territo
rial ticket but was worse beaten than
the county ticket.
If Mr. Catron and his friends had
not repudiated the Socorro platform
of 1804 there is no reason to doubt he
would have been elected, the legisla
ture would have been republican and a
portion of the Grant couuty republi
can ticket would Lave been choseu.
In passing It mfjht l mciitioued
that ou the county ticket the two re
publicans against whom the largest
number of votes were cast were Mr.
l'errault and Mr. Splller, and these
two unfortunate gentlemen wero
known to faiuo as the olltlcal prote
ges of the editor of the Silver City En
terprise. Whether there Is any con
nection between thce facts the Liu-
kra Is not Id a posittou to accurately
All of which Is referred to tue care

Wyoming, with 15 electoral vote's, are
still in doubt. McKinley has 53 more
electoral voles than he needed to he
elected and ho has a popular plurality
of 1,00(1, UK).
