TUESDAY. NOVEMBER 13, 1900. HEARST SEES IT. The San Francisco Examiner of November 8th, contains a long editorial on "The Meaning of Defeat," in whioh it contends that Bryan beat himself. it contains these paragraphs: The people have evidently made up their minds to dispose of free silvr once for all. The effort was superfluous, for free silver had ceased to exist as a possible policy four years ago, but the voters were determined not to have the remains lying around any longer. The Democrafcia party has paid by two defeats for the adop tion of an unpopular and dis credited issue. Free silver was defensible in 1896, although ev en then its advocates had an up hill fight. But everything that has happened in the past four years has helptd to bury it deep er in the graveyard of obsolete issues. Russia. Taoan, and half a dozen minor nations have be come fold standard countries. Even in South America silver is steadily losing ground, and Mex ico is almost the only important friend it has left. A flood of new gold has filled the monetary channels of the world. Every argument the silver ad vocates advanced in 1896 scar city of gold, appreciating curren cy, business stringency has ceased to have any application to Dresent conditions. Prices have been rising instead of falling. The trusts have been practically reducing the wages of the entire laboring population by making the dollar buy less. This is the mosi effective argument advanoed by democracy for winning labor votes, and it is under suoh con ditions that the democratic party ' has been put in the ridiculous and odious position of trying to make the dollar buy less still. Amerioan publio opinion be lieves in fche retention of the Philippines, and in the exten sionto that country of a truly Amerioan form of government, under which the Filipino would har orovocation to revolt. It believes that free silver was dead in 1896 and is ten times deader in 1900. That is one issue, at least, that will not ba heard of again in the immediate future. To give liberty to the Filipi nos it was not essential to grant independence. Mr. MoKinley will find it absolutely necessary to establish liberty in the Philip pines and settle the affairs of Porto Rico in accordance with American traditions. The official vote of Benton county gives MoKinley 928, Bry an 766, Wooliey 83, Barker 3, Debs 7. McKinley's plurality is, therefore, 162. Tee total vote of the county was 1787. This is considerably below the June registration of 1955, and a trifle below the vote of last Jane which was 1822. The last fig ures show the total vote cast for clerk, which was above that of any other candidate, the average being in tha neighborhood of 1750- votes. Bis Land Deal. E. J. Frazier, the real estate dealer, closed up a deal for the following seven farms on last Thursday, and the deeds have all passed to necord: The George W Farleigh farm and stock, 91 acres, $2,920; the R D Elliott farm of 40 acres for $1,000; the Richard H.
