TIIK NATIONAL KI.IX'TION.
licttlugmi elections Is very risky;
guesslngon the result of the national
vote, In this presidential contest, is
utsoa ha.ardous undertaking If one
Is at all sensitive as to his repute as
a political prophet. There is an un
usual amount of changing going on.
Itopuhllum papers are Jubilant with
accessions to their own ranks from
the democratic fold, while demo
cratic editors make equally as Im
pressive n parade of names come
over from the republican camp. The
Volco, (a noted prohibition organ,)
nlso presents every week a formidable
array of republicans and democrats
alike, who have given up old parly
affiliations to cast In their lot with
the cold water icforiucrs.
A fact recently published In brief
terms, and only mentioned In a few
papers, that the Union Labor party
in Oregon has nominated presi
dential electors, reminds us that
some of our exchanges hjhmiIc very
favorably of KUeotor, the presidential
o.iudldnte of that parly, and bespeak
for him a big vote In Kansas,
Nebraska and some southern states.
The republicanism of tho two
states named Is badly a II Voted by
the heavy Indebtedness of the
fai liters. UnprosporoiiH seasons and
oppressive lutciosl have uH'ccfcd
the loyalty of a largo uumlicr of this
class. They see iiiammoth fortunes
piling up lu comparatively few
hands while they iiro uiuiblu to get
out of debt. Millionaires aro
crowding Into tho senate ulmmbcr,
and u gold bug Is placed on the
republican ticket for vice president.
Thimo farmers openly say that
honest labor should have some at
tention from the government, and
laws should I hi iommsI to protect the
helpless class from the mniiotollx
lug and oppressive money jsiwer.
This turns them lu the direction of
any movement that promises aid,
and the Union Labor party will for
this reason lw apt to receive fair

The l'ost-lntclllgenccr, of Kent tie,
the leading newspaier in our
neighbor territory, finds It necessary
to remind Its readers that It is
republican, its political standing
seeming to be a question with a
portion. We read Its columns
diligently and with approval, and
have felt disposed to pronounce It
stalwart In Its republicanism; but
Its allegiance to party Is impugned
by some iMiliticlans, and the editor
explains how it came about. "When
an aspirant for political honors
presents himself before a republican

Irrespective of merit or fitness.
Here and there an editor is found

Tills Is rank treason in their eyes,
and they meet in solemn conclave,
to anathematle the offender and
read him out of the party. This
pleases ihem, no doubt, ami docs
the newspaper man no harm. This
latter person, if he has the faculty
of looking before and after, and
his purines are uptight, knows
that politicians ambitious for office
may come ami go, out society goes

There Is no sense In the defeated
part les trying to break the force of
the overwhelming republican ma
jority lu this Htate last June. John
1. Irish Is seeking to convince IiIm
California supporters that the pro
fuse use of money by the republican
committee brought about the result;
and Gov. St. John (lu the Voice)
talk, of the hearty mipport lent to
the republicans of Oregon "by the
railway inoiHiHllcs and the rum
jKiwer." Thin Is only Wilting nlmut
the bush. Then U no disguising
the truth that free wool dominated
the vote, Kurtner and other took
in the foolish talk that the passage
of the Mills bill would bring ruin to
their Interests, nnd In a sort of panic
feeling they voted the rvpuhlleau
ticket under the Impulse of eclf pro
tection. A few venal voter, no
doubt, took bribe, as usual, nd rail
way compunlcH una haIoou kcecrti
lutlucnced all the vote they could.
Hut the! ngeuclc are nt work nt
every election, ami It I unreason
able to tuippaso that last Juno they
should exercise so much more power
than ever tnifore, IVrlir talk did It,
and there U no uco lu any body try

A CAMIIII AIMI4ION.
It Is lo lie regretted that New
York boys have mieh jxHir opportu
nities for physical development. A
few days ago twenty of them from
one public school applied for exami
nation to bo admitted to the Naval
Academy at Aniuiiolis. All were
found so It is stated well enoinrh
up in their studies, but not one large
enough and strong enough to pass
the physical examination. It N not
likely that the fault or their physi
cal deficiency was due entirely to
the schools, as some of our howling
newspapers tell us. The fault is,
many of the parents of these boy
have themselves deteriorated by
working In doors at mechanical or
sedentary occupations, and by living
in narrower aimrtiuents with less
fresh air than they would have had
In the country. Having less physl.
nil strength themselves, their off
spring also have les. We must not
blame our school for this. Hut we
may blame them because they do
not pfuvido the best physical as well
a tho best Intellectual training.
