There will be elections for gov
ernor io six slates this coming fall,
namely, Massachusetts, Maryland,
Mississippi, Kentucky, Ohio and Io
wa. Massachusetts and Iowa will
certainly go Kcpublicftn, nnd Missis
sippi can sifely be plated in the Do
moeraiic column. Maryland, Ken
tucky and Ohio Lave Republican
governors at the present time, but it
is doubtful if executives of that
faith are coutinued iu power in a'l
the states irenUoiu'd.
Ohio will probably elect Nash, the
UepuUican candidate for governor,
but h;s majority is not likely to be
overwhelmiiiii. Iu tint H years the
state has cm-sen only futir Demo
crats for Us highest otlice, ai:it no
one of these has ever received a sc
ond teirn. Although fs clioual dif.
ferences were apparently patched up
at the last convention in Co'umbu?,
when Senator Ilanna succeeded in
bavins his man nominated, some
apathy is certain to be displayed in
spite of the fact that nn Ohio man is
president and that his candidate for
governor was nominated and will re
ceive adruinisttation support.
Under normal conditions Kentucky
is Democratic. With 5000 gold
Democrats in levoll in 1 8DG McKin
ley carried the slate by 200 voles
only. A year ngo old party lines
were again straightened out and the
Democratic plurality was over 18,
000. Although the Republicans ex
pect to wae a very vigorous cam
paign, there is slight chance of their
winning a victory.
The contest in Maryland is likely
to he close. The slate now has its
first Republican governor in 80 years.
The country districts arc Republican,
while the city of Rdtimore is Demo
cratic, and the election will probably
turn on the vote of the municipality.
A new honest election law is now in
force and the frauds of former years
in Baltimore are not likely to be re
peated. Thi: fact, the Republicans
claim, will be something greatly to
their advantage.

Ed. Iloyce, formerly miner, but
now profesional agitator and would
be reformer of the world, is a good
deal off in liia history, if the published
account of his speech in Butte is cor
rect. He sirs: "The conduct of
Governor Steunenberg and General
Meriiatn surpasses anything that has
ever been attempted in I he world.
History does not record nn instance
when it was necessary for a working
man tosecure a permit to seek em
ployment in any country under the
sun except Id.iho, whore a Demo
cratic governor has descended to the
depths of depravity in conjunction
with a general of the r.rmy to com
pel workingmen to first obtain their
permission before accepting employ -merit."'
Evidently Boj ce hasn't given very
profound tho iht to historical studies,
lie isn't acquainted with a good
many important happenings during
the last two or three thousand years,
otherwise he wouldn't say the con
duct of certain officials in Idaho sur
passes anything that has ever been
attempted In the world.
There is nothinu' very startling in
the way in h:cii Steuiicnberg and
Mcrriam took charge of olTiirs in a
riotous mining district. They mcre-
II is evident from the report of
the wheat condition, which has Just
been made by tuo government, that
the yield in 1809 will be smaller than
was expected a few weeks ago. The
cold weather last winter ami the
absence of an adequate snow cover
ing for the ground injured the winter
wheat to such nn extent that the
condition, as seen by the government
report, is about 23 J per cent below
that of a year ago. I he spring
wheat, too, is not up to the forecast
made iu May.
Conservative estimates based on
the acreage and average condition
male the wheat yield of 1800 from
520,000,000 to 550.000,000 bu.-hels,
as against a crop of 075,000,000
bushels iu 1898. It must be re
numbered, however, that the 3 it Id
of 1898 was the largest ever bar
vested. The 000,000.000 mnik in
wheat production was never passed
before in this country except in
1891, when the yield was Gl 1 ,780,
000 bushels. The laigest yield in
an1 other year was that of 1897,!
which was 530,1 19,108 bushels. The
jield of 1699, therefore, even at the
lowest estimate yet made, will be as
great as uuy ever bai vested except
in 1891 and 1898. On such an ex
hibit as this the country will Gnd no
discouragement. Moreover, a sur
plus of about 100,000,000 bushels is
still left unused, it is believed, of
laat yeai's crop.
In any case the wheat yield of
1899 will be suflicieut to meet the
wants of the country for food and
for seeding, and allow a fair margin
for exportation. That there will be
a considerable demand from abroad
is exceedingly probable. Russia's
wheat crop it is believed from the
latest indications, will be much be
low the average of recent years, and
that country is ordinarily a heavy
exporter of wheat. In the other
European countries in the aggregate
the crop, it is figured, will be about j
a mean yield, lhe reports of tue
wheat situation at home and abroad
justify the recent advance in that
cereal. They also indicate that the
American farmer will find a good
demand for his crop, while the
American consumer is not likely to
have to pay exorbitant prices for
his food. Globe-Democrat.

The unveiling of the statue Thurs
day in New York to former Presi

fitting tribute to a capable and worthy
public servant. The case of Gen.
Ailhur was a Gne illustration of the
steadying it.fluence of great responsi
bility. Previous to his choice as
vice president he had never held an
elective ollicc. He hid filled some
appointive posts, but aside from thai

circles when, at the dcaih of Presi

however, were misgivings so quickly
and so completely dissipated. It was
assumed that as Arthur belonged to
the opposite faction in the Bepublican
party from that wilh which Garfield
was identified, war would be made
on Gai field's friends and the Re
publican party would be disorganized
and placed in a minority in the
country at large. The new president
very protnptly and very agreeably
disappointed his critics. The lie
publican party did, indeed, lose the

the facts which had been brought to
light for fear of thwarting the plans of
cfBcera who were at work to bring to
juaiii'e the parties concerned thertiu.
Through tho vigilance of our post
master it was discovered that letters
were received by these girls addressed to
"Maggie Coin," a fictitious name
letters which were unfit for any human
being to read, much lets young girls,
who are hardly yet able to write an in
telligent letter of any sort.
The postal inspector being informed,
hastened to the city, and ferreting out
the whole affair, discovered that one
Temple, who is a member of the "Noble
Dramatic Company" was tbe author of
these scandalous epistles and was also
scheming to pereuade one of the girls to
elope wilh bim. The inspector at
started for N-'w Whatcom, where the
Noble Company was billed to play, and
finally arrested the fiend at that place a
few days since.
This, we hope will bo the last of hlui,

surely the girls have learned a lesson
which will prove of lasting good.
