THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1899. WHAT THE ELECTIONS TELL. You have heard about the boy who in passing the graveyard at night whistles to k'jep up his courage. That is something like what some of our Democratic con? temporaries are now doing. They are pass? ing by the graveyard of their buried hopes, that died on Tuesday of last week, and are bravely trying to whistle them? selves comfortable. Fortunately for the country the elections of last week did not make any change in the existing conditions, but gave em? phatic announcement of the satisfaction of the people with affairs as they now stand. There has been a positive declaration by the people against reaction, and in this respect the elections of the 7th inst. were peculiar and exceptional. No Adminis? tration, in the la*t half of its term, has ever received such a hearty endorsement from the people. In Ohio, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Iowa, South Da? kota, where the President's policy was made the leading issue, magnificent vic? tories were won by the Republicans. In Nebraska, Mr. Bryan, by a combination ticket of Populist, Silver Kepublican and Democrat, and by the most urgent ap? peals to the sympathy of his people, gained a Fusion, not Democratic or anti-Ado)inis tration, victory. Maryland, by factional differences in the Republican ranks and the introduction of purely local issues, was won by the Democracy, while Kentucky, because of factional fights among the Democrats and a revolt against corrupt election methods, again placed itself in line with the Republican party. We draw the following conclusions from thi tesults of these elections : First. The country most thoroughly ap proves of the economic policy of the Re publican party and the home and foreigi policy of President McKinley. This en dorseinent embraces the Philippine polk} and is practically a death blow to anti expansion. It a!:0 settles beyond dispute the re-nomination of Mr. McKinleyic 190O, and his triumphant re-election In the people. Second. The result also settles beyond dispute the fact that Mr. Bryan will be the nominee of Democratic-Populist fusionists in 1900. They have no other man to whom they can look, and he will not let them look to any other. Bryan is the keystone in the arch of the wonderful po? litical combination which antagonizes Re? publicanism, and when that keystone is cast aside the arch will crumble and fall. Bryan will have no competitor for the hopeless task which he will undertake in 1000 for reasons peculiar to himself. Third. The most gratifying assurances which the elections of last week have given are, that there will be no interruption of present business conditions. Prosperity, which has become so general, will con? tinue to spread over the land, and popular confidence will grow stronger each day. The results of these elections have been most fortunate for all classes of our people. We believe a great many of the Demo? crats think so, those who arc not politi? cians. IOWA AN INDEX. Our Democratic friends are striving to make themsels'cs believe that the results of the State elections on the 7th inst. were not significant on national questions that are likely to be made issues in 1900. They point to Ohio, Kentucky and Maryland as proof of their views, contending that the outcome in those States was produced by factional differences and local questions. This may probably be true; but there is one state where such conditions did not exist, and where the contest was made on purely national questions, that state is! Iowa. As a defiance to the position of Mr. Bryan, who was recognized as the leader of the Democracy and its certain candidate in 1900 for the Presidency, the Repub? licans of Iowa in their State platform de? clared unequivocally for the gold standard and for expansion. It was the boast of Mr. Bryan and his supporters that the po? sitions taken by the Iowa Republicans would, to say the least, make that State a doubtful one, and that Democratic gains would be very large, because of the decla? rations for the gold standard and expan? sion. The contest was made chiefly by the Bryanites on the anti-expansion issue, which they had raised throughout the country. There was no triangular fight in the State is witnessed in other states. The Republicans and Democrats were the only J parties that had candidates before the | people. The Republican candidate for Governor planted himself squarely on a gold standard and expansion platform, while the Democratic candidate took his position on the Chicago platform, supple? mented with a strong anti-expansion plank. No better Held than Iowa could have been selected for the battle. There had previously been existing in the State a strong sentiment for free silver, and be? ing purely an agricultural section it was naturally one which would take a more conservative position on the expansion question than other states where manu? facturing largely obtained and where the business men were more deeply interested in finding new markets and new fields for commerce. The State had actually been carried at one tune by Bois for the De? mocracy on the currency question; and Bois as a free sdvetite and Weaver as a Greenbacker, had so polluted the State with their unsound financial theories that the Democracy had begun to class it among the doubtful Slates. On the 7th inst., with issues squarely made, Iowa gave a tremendous majority for the single gold standard and expansion, as outlined by the policy of President McKinley. The majority of 01,000 in Ihe State is bound to awaken the deluded fol? lowers of Bryanism to the fact that free silver was only strong when calamity ex? isted, and that anti-expansion is a senti? ment which the American public will not sustain. ABOUT SOLIDLY DEMOCRATIC. Of the 1-10 Senators and Members that constitute Ihe Virginia Legisla? ture, the Democratic machine controls 132. What more significant proof can be offered of the corruption in Virginia politics than the make up of the Legislature ? It shows conclusively that fraud has complete con? trol. Nothing but fraud of the most fla? grant and vicious character could prevent a minority party composed of one hundred and thirty-five thousand voters from hav? ing a larger representation in the State Legislature. Two or three Republicans and as many independents constitute the opposition in the next General Assembly. When the Democracy boasts of its victory in Virginia, it boasts of its own fraud and Virginias shame. Where will the matter end ? At what point will the political, and consequent moral, degradation terminate? The Fredericksbur?: Free Lance is appre? hensive that Senator John W. Daniel will lose his popularity with the Virginia De? mocracy by uttermir words of praise for Mc? Kinley and a seemins willingness to desert Bryan. Thus d ?cs the Free Lance guage the afle 't:on and fidelity of the Virginia Democracy. To speak the truth about a politic d adversary is a <rime which de? stroys its affection for the man who utters it. Baron Pai l Vieterghoff, from Russia, 1 is now in Virginia in the interest of bis i government, for the purpose of purchasing two thousand horste for the Russian caval? ry. He will first visit the horse market3 of this State, will then go to Kentucky and from there to Montana. The United States Government has found that the very best horses for cavalry service are those bred in Southwest Virginia. At the recent election in Buffalo, N. Y., voting machines were used that made an indisputable record of the voting as it pro gressed. In Virginia a voting machine i was used that was so potential that it was useless to dispute the record it was mak ing. The Rochester machines were the perfection of fairness. The Virginia ma? chine is the perfection of fraud. Admiral Geobge Dkwev and Mrs. Mil ! died Ha/en were married in Washington I on the morning of the 9th inst. The country at large congratulates the Admiral and his fair bride on the happy event. It was another strong proof of the Admiral's good sense that he decided to enter the field of matrimony and not politics. - The Machine has elected nearly a solid Legislature in Virginia. This was easily accomplished. The Machine could elect anybody it desired, for the ballot boxes were its possession and the election laws bristle with opportunities to make fraud easy. -? ? Is the history of this Government no Ad? ministration in the middle of its term has ever received such a triumphant, endorse? ment as has the administration of Piesi dent McKinley. General Prosperity seems to have given a quietus to free silverism, greenbaekism, Populism and Democracy in the State of Iowa. The General will perform a like service throughout the Union. TOO MANY COLLEGES. Richmond Times. 1 This 13 an aae of combination and it is unfortunate that the principle is not ap? plied to the institutions of learning in the South. It may not be popular to say 60, but we have long recognized the fact that there are too manv small colleges through ont the Southern States. In this way we have dissipated our forces. We liave been trying to maintain a large number of in? stitutions of learning, each under its own organization, and in most cases it is a struggle for our colleges to get along. If a dozen of these institutions coald be thrown into one, the South would soon have a few universities that would com? pare in wealth and equipment and in? fluence with the great and rich universi? ties of the North. But we may not hope to have Yales and Harvards and Cornells in the South so long as we pursue our present course of trying to keep up twice and three times as many institutions as the patronage will justify.

In the thin, almost transparent frame of Leo XIII the nerves trembles; upon his pale face every emotion of the soul is evident. His senses still remain acule; his hearing, as those who have seen him within the last month say, is good; and the eye, which the Ger? man painter, I^nbach, depicted in so life? like a manner: shines yet with all the old fire. WHEELER PLEASED WITH PHILIP? PINES. Arijuments of Anti-Expansionists Assist Aguinaldo in Maintaining Warfare and Keep the Natives From Us. General Joseph Wheeler has recently written a letter to Mr. W. J. Wood, ol Florence, Ala., in which he tells sotut plain truths about the Philippines and the evil work of the anti-expansionists in this country. The letter is as follows : "I am delighted with the Philippin? Islands. I have no doubt that a little push and energy this Fall will crush oul tiie Aguinaldo insurrection. Out of 9,000 00.) of people in these islands I do no think that he has more than L'0,000 sol diers, and in a equare fight 5000 Ameri cans would tear them to pieces. All tha is necessary to crush them out at once ii for the army to get at them and keep a them until the work is done. "The evil features of these islands hav( been exaggerated to our people. Theii extent is so great from north to south ant the variation of altitude is such that then is a great variety of climate and variety o; productions. Americans will find this ar excellent field for their energies, and the wealth-producing power of these islandi under American influence will be very great. "The action of some peopia in the Unit? ed States in asserting that the people ol the Philippines ought to have independ? ence does a great deal of harm and assists Aguinaido in maintaining the insurrection, as he publishes all assertions by Americans of that character, and lie tells his suppot ters that if they hold out until Winter independence will be given them. It also has a bad effect in this?that the people who are disposed to be favorable to us and desire us to govern the islands fear to assert themselves because they know that if they should do so and the Americans should abandon them they would be in great danger of their lives and in all proba I bility their property would be confiscated. "On the 9th of September I had a lit? tle fight with the enemy at this point, but it did not amount to much, although as important as some other engagements which have been dignified in the papers as lights. I am sorry to say that much which appears in the papers of the United States is gross exaggerations. I expect to be on band fot Congress. With high re ga-ds." THE ELECTION AND BRYAN Richmond "Times" (Dem.)] The Hon. William J. Bryan was very much in evidence in the late campaign and if he can find any comfort in the returns from Tuesday's election it must come out of his own State. There is none on the outside. There was a red hot revolt in Kentucky against boss rule and political corruption. Mr. Bryan went into Kentucky, canvassed the State from one end to the other and pleaded with the Democrats to stand by the regular party nominee in spite of the irregularity of the Goebel convention, for, said he. to lose Kentucky in 1899 will be to deal a blow to the silver cause in 1900. He was asked by Candidate Brown if he approved the methods employed in the nomination of Goebel and if be approved the Goebel election law. Mr. Bryan re? plied that he had not come to Kentucky to discuss conventions and election laws, but to plead for party regularity and free silver. Vast crowds turned out to hear him and he talked to them almost with tears in his eyes, telling them that the fate ot free silver was in the balance. But for all his pleading Kentucky, which had been won back into the Democrtic fold, has again been carried by the Re? publicans and bolting Democrats by a greater plurality than it was carried by in 1890. Mr. Bryan claimed thnt in 1896 he was cheated out of the Kentucky vote, but this time all the election machinery was in the hands of the Democrats and the Goebel election law, which was warranted never to fail, was in full force. From Kentucky Mr. Bryan went into Uluo and travelled all over the State mak? ing speeches from the rear end of a palace car. He arraigned the present adminis- i tration, talked about imperialism, and in ,nanv places denounced the money power and trusts, declaring that the country could not enjoy permanent prosperity un? til the mints should be opened to the free coinage of silver. He urged the Demo? crats to stand by McLean and pointed out what a grand thing it would be for the Democracy in 1900, if Ohio could be whip? ped into the Democratic line. But Mr, Bryan's plea was vain and the plea of John K. McLean's newspaper and money bar? rel was also in vain. In spite of the de? fection caused by Jones, who ran as an In? dependent Republican candidate, Ohio is Republican by an increased plurality. But there was one State into which Mr. Bryan did not go. It was the State of Maryland. Maryland is normally a Demo? cratic State, but revolted against Gorman's bo-eism and Bryan's silverism. But this year the Democrats got together, deter? mined that they would reclaim the State from the negroes and white Republicans, and so they framed a State platform which did not nay one word about free silver or other pet doctrines of the Chicago plat, form. Mr. Bryan did not go near and did not take a hand in the light. The result was that Maryland rolled up an old-fash? ioned Democratic majority. Not only did the Maryland platform ignore free silver and Bryanism, but Hon. John Walter Smith, who was elected Governor, and Hon. Isidore Hayner, Attorney General, are both pronounced sound money Demo? crats. _ FAMOUS SAYINtiS REVISED. How the Aguinaldists Would Have Them Read in the Light of to-day. Memphis "Appeal."

A Democratic Newspaper Protests Against Its Party Debating a Standing Army. New Haven "Regteter" (bum.)] The experienced Washington observers have decided that t feature, a political feature of the next session of Congress will be a never-ceasing debate upon the question of a laru'e standing army. This is not at all improbable, but the outlook becomes painfully fatiguing for the rest of the country. , It is declared that the Democratic lead? ers are expecting to make no end of polit? ical capital for 1900 consumption by a , grandstand attack upon the inevitable proposition for the maintenance of the i army on the 10J.000 footing as long as it may be needed. In this move they will be cordially supported by Senator Hoar, Senator Wellington and presumably by Senator Mason, who is counted on by his allies of the opposition to keep on blushing for his country whenever the opportunity presents. Opposition to a large standing army is a shibboleth that has done long if not useful service. The horrid spectacle of 100,(100 soldiers tramp'ing upon popular liberties will be paraded through both wings of the Capitol with all the stage effects that oratory and gesticular athletics can produce. What will interest most people in this connection will be the extent to which this sort of political slang-whanging can cue- ? ceed. There is nothing novel or original i in the plan of forcing a counter issue from the diseu-sion of the main issue, and it eometimes succeeds. In our opinion, however, there never was a time when the circumstances were such that the chances of success remain doubtful to rely upon. It is a very difficult undertaking to scare 75,000,000 of people with 100,000 soldiers It is not so difficult to take the measure of the men or party undertaking it. The country is in no danger of militarism, pres ent or remote. Its awakening will do no harm. Notice.

Samuel T. Heningek. June 22nd, 1899. 0-22- 12m (1 F FREE BLEEDERS. A Curlona Tendency 'I'llitt ManlfcNta Itself In Otherwise Anpnrently Healthy I'eri*ou?. Among the members of some families there exists a curious tendency to bleed profusely from the slightest in? jury. An insignificant cut on the finger, or even a pin scratch, will sometimes bleed so obstinately as to almost en? danger life, and many subjects of this Btrunge condition do actually bleed to death from trivial wounds, which in u healthy person would not cause five minutes of discomfort. In addition to the importance of haemophilia, as the affection is called, as a menace to life it affords a most in? teresting study in heredity. The dis? ease runs in families and is transmitted from one generation to another accord? ing to a curiously complex law. It affects the male members of the family almost exclusively. The chil? dren of a man who is a "bleeder" often show no tendency in themselves to the loss of blood from slight wounds, smd his sons' children arc likewise free from the trouble; but the male children of the daughters are again bleeders. Thus the males of the family in every sec? ond generation suffer, yet the tendency is transmitted in the female line. This looks like a malignant effort on the part of nature to preserve the tendency from extinction; for were it transmitted only through the male line, the boys and men only being bleeders, the families would soon die out and the disease with them. As. it Is, the tendency persists through many gen? erations, one family being known in which it has been evident for more than two centuries. Except for anaemia due to repeated hemorrhages, bleeders usually show no signs of ill health. They do not often reach adult life, but when they do they gradually outgrow the disposition. Hoys who suffer from this condition are almost always covered with black and blue spots, the slightest tap on the skin often resulting In a new discolora? tion. A wound is not always necessary to bring on the bleeding, and profuse and even fatal hemorrhage, perhaps in the form of nose-bleed, may start .sud? denly without apparent cause. The treatment of an attack of hem? orrhage in a bleeder Is the same as that for any other person, but It must be more energetic. The boys in a bleeder family should of course always be un? der a physician's care. Fortunately fhe number of such families, in this coun? try, at least, Is small.?Youth's Com? panion.
