which the answers, with but few exceptions
agree, are : First, the coinage of silver
should be definitely postponed. Next, meas

COMMENT ON THE OHIO ELECTION.
Chicazo Tribune: And democrats have
begun to vote the prohibition ticket a little!
Here's a state of tilings !
New York Times: The democrats lost
the state through the efforts of John K. Mc
Lean and his PHcrupubus ang.
New York Sun: The result is a check
for the democracy, and no explanation can
chauge the fact ir render it any the less disagreeable.
Cleveland Flaiudealer (dem.) : It is a vic
tory for John Sherman. His hold on the
Germans stood him in good stead, and he
will grab the seuatorship for his pay.
New York Tribune : It is clear that
President Cleveland aud Governor Hoadlf
did not get the splendid vindication tor
which their, friends worked so long and s
confidently. If verdicts of the people ever
mean anything, this verdict cannot be reck
Bostou Herald (Mug) : The republican
triumph iu Ohio is significant of two things:
The failure of the democratic party to im
plore the advantage which it gained in the
election of President Cleveland, aud the un
impaired cohesive power of the republican

licans of Ohio have won a staving victory

power both at Washington and Columbus.
It will be so felt iu Pennsylvania and in
New York, where the political pulse is more
sensative to October signals of political
cheer or distress.
Nev York World: The result of the
Ohio election is to be regretted, because it
is an exnressiou of hostility to the demo
crat, ic administration and will be paraded
by the repuplicaus as an indication that a
reaction has already set in against the dem
ocracy aud in favor of the restoration of the
republicaus to power.
St. Faul Fioueer-Fress: Republican suc
cess in Ohio is immeusly significant. It
proves that the people, having shown the
party errors aud having seen it profit by
chastisement, are ready to stand by it in op
position to an organization upon whom the
highest honor confers no degree of the in
telligence above that needed to gabble about
the omnipotence of the spoils.
Philadelphia Press: This result shows
that the republican column, instead of being
shattered by the natural defeat of last year,
stands undismayed and unbroken. Demo
cratic power at Washington and democratic
efforts in the states have not shaken re pub
lean faith or allegiance. The party comes
.-..it from its temporary reverse with fresh
courage aud renewed determination.
Boston Transcript, (Mu.): The Ohio
oil-Hoad ley-John McClean democracy went
..., uiit.h a dull thud yesterday. Jonn
Sherman's personal strength in Ohio, ans
from his successful career as a senator aud
cabinet officer, is indisputable. Should the
next legislature re-elect him United States
senator he will become more powerful than
ever in national republican politics. It will
give him an immense start toward the next
republican presidential nomination.
The issue of standard dollars from the

October 17, amounted to $567,559.
Shipments of coin from the overcrowded
vaults of the different sub-treasuries .to the
treasury at Washington, since the general
transfer began, September 3, amount, to
about $26,000,000 in silver and $5,000,000
in gold. The $10,400,000 in silver brought
fromjNew Orleans in naval vessels, is -in the
above statement. All the gold came from
San Francisco, from which place about $13,-
000,0o0 in gold had previously been sent to
New York by registered mail. It is est

A Washington correspondent, who ap
pears to speak with some authority, says
the president is worRing a great many hours
every day, many more than clerks in de
partments and many more thau under of
ficials who cornplaiu of the hardships ol
their position. He allows himself absolute
ly no more license than is actually necessary
to preserve his health. He recogizes that
he has made a mistake in some appoint
ments, also that they have generally been
the result of overcontidence in representa
tives and senators, aud sometimes in cabinet
officers, but always iu persons whom he
ought to be able to trust.
The agent at the tort Belknap Indian res
ervation in northern Montana, has informed
the iuterior department that a uumlier of
Cree ludiaus, reiugecs irom the British pos
sessions, have crossed the line into the res
ervation, having iu their possession "silver
ware aud articles of ladies' apparel, sup
posed to have been captured during the Big
Bear outbreak. The ageut requested that
these intruders be escorted across he line
and forbidden to enter the United States.
The matter was referred to the secretary of
state, who has replied that these Indiana
cannot be arrested, except upon extradition
by the British authorities, and that this
government should not countenance any
kidnapping of ludiaus. I he interior de

The secretary of war has issued the fol
lowing general order, which will heuuetortu
be an additional army regulation.- "In tune
of peace, details of not less thau one officer

who have sufficient intelligence are profic

The civil service commissiou has address
ed a letter to President Clevelaud, calling
his attention to an attempt by the Pennsyl
vania republican committee to collect politi
cal assessments in the departments, aud
suggesting the propriety of making an in
vestigation of the matter, with a view ot
punishing all parties connected with it who
can be reached by law. They say it is their
belief Chairman Cooper, who is responsible
for the begging circular, is not an employe
of the government, and therefore cannot be
reached. The letter suggested that congress

The appointment of C. W. Roby to be
postmaster at Portland, Or., settles a ques
tion which has vexed the postomce depart
ment for some time. The principal candi
dates lor this office have already been given
along with an outline of what was represen
ted to be the feelings of the people in re
gard to them. It is stated by persons from
the state that Roby's appointment will
cause dissatisfaction among the old democ
racy of the state. A protest has also been
filed against Mr. Daniel htewart, recently
appointed postmaster at Walla Walla in
Wash. Ty., on the ground that he is too old
and that he is in the hands of certain re
publicaus, who will practically run the of
fice. Mr. Vilai stated that the protest
would receive consideration.
Mrs.Leland Stanford has had constructed
at her individual expense a mortuary chapel
which forms part of Trinity church, on
Powell and Post streetsS.F. The room is 40
by 20 feet in size and has been appropriately
fitted up for the purpose for which it is de
signed. It will be used as a temporary de
posit for remains brought to that city en
route to final place of burial.
The'Steamship Oceanic, which sailed from
Sen Francisco for China last Saturday took

who exjiected to take passage on the
vessel,4Bfc will be commpelled to wait un

A close estimate of the total losses by the
recent Crocker fire place them at $775,000,
the most costly tire San Francisco has ex
perienced for twenty years.
A 1 Little, a northern Pacific tie contractor
of North Yakima made an assignment last
week and on the 19th with friends, he had
a knock-down fight with his employes who
claim fraud. Little then had the assign

But Marshal George seized fifteen thousand
ties aud four thousand cords of wood iu the

with despoiling the government lands.
