SCATHING WORDS FOR CLEVELAND
Satro Undoubtedly Elected Mayor of San
Francises--Republican Gains In Mis
souri Solid South Broken.
Louisville, Ky.t Nov. 8. In today's
Corier-Journal, under the head, "Have
We a Democratic party?" Mr. Watter
son says :
"Never did a great party go to the
people under such handicaps as were
carried by the democrats into the cam
paign just ended. The hard times were
bad enough, but they might have been
' ' parried. Faction ' fights among small
claimants and rival place men were bad
enough, but parties have met and over
come such obstacles before now; but
with the record of perfidy and dishonor,
as Cleveland aptly described it, to face
and defend in a hand-to-hand fight with
- the united republicans, led by Harrison,
McKinley and Reed, it was dishearten
ing for the democrats to have to face
also the dull self-sufficiency and stolid
indifference of an administration that
made no sign, uttered no word, and at
least in the state of New York, seemed
to desire to defeat the regular democratic
nominees. The battle for tariff reform
will have to go down to the foot and
take a new start. The battle over the
money issue will soon be upon us. We
shall see if there is democracy enough
left of the true-blue stripe to make a
greatcoat good against all weather, or
whether we must still wear a coat of
many colors, covering not a homogenous
. party inspired by faith and trust, but a
mere bundle of factions thrown together
by thfe upheaval of the times."
Ambassador Bayard Says It Was De
lay In Passing a Tariff Bill.
Baltimore, Nov. 8, Ambassador
. ' Thomas F. Bayard eaid today : "I had
great apprehensions as to the result of
the recent elections for some time. I
don't want to run afoul of these gentle
men responsible for the delay in passing
the tariff bill, but the patriot's duty is
unmistakeable. The necessity for pure
democrat ic tariff legislation was never so
great as it is now. Bills for free raw
material should be passed immediately
and then the country would be able to
contemplate the democratic idea of the
tariff in full working order for two years
before the national election rolls around.
If this is done I have little fear the ver
dict will be unsatisfactory in 1896."
Ambassador Bayard sails for England
The Tariff Blamed.
London, Nov. 8. The Pall Mall Ga
zette, commenting on the election in
the United States says: "The failure
of the democrats is due to the action of
the senate on the tariff question, "but,"
the Gazette adds, "the country has been
carried away by its general and indis
JL Kenr York Estimate.
New Yobk, Nov. 8. Latest returns
show that the next house will stand 234
republicans, 117 democrats, 5 populists.
The republicans will have a majority of
112. At present the democratic majority
is 84. Every prominent democrat in an
Eastern state has been defeated. The
Solid South is broken. West' Virginia
elects four republican congressmen ;
Maryland, Kentucky, Virginia, North
Carolina, Tennessee, Missouri, Dela
ware, and even Texas, elected one to
seven republican congressmen. Michi
gan, Iowa, Indiana, Connecticut, New
Jersey and Kansas send solid republican
delegations to congress. Morton's ma
jority in New York will be over 150,000.
, The populists were beaten in all their
strongholds, with the exception of Ne
vada. The republicans recaptured Kan
sas by a large majority. Waite, popu
list, of Colorado, for governor met with
a crushing defeat. The Montana re
publicans have a majority of the legisla
ture, which insures the election of two
United States senators. New Jersey
will have a republican legislature, and a
democratic United States senator will
. be succeeded by a republican. In Illi
Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report
nois the republicans got everything in
sight, and will' also elect a United States
senator. Pennsylvania republicans
elect 28 out of 30 congressmen. In Ne
vada, Newlands, the silver party candi
date, is conceded to be elected, as is also
Jones for governor. In every other
state the republicans have elected a
majority of all officers.
Republicans Won, Bnt Are Afraid of
Losing Tbelr Victory.
Washington, Nov. 8. Chairman
Babcock, of the republican congressional
committee, received the following letter
today from A. E. Holton, chairman of
the republican state committee of North
"We won a complete victory at the
polls here yesterpay. We elected the
judicial ticket by estimated majorities
oi over 40,000, and have both branches
of the legislature, with, four republican
and three populist congressmen. A
fight will have to be made tomorrow be
fore the county .canvassing board. It
will be necessary for us to employ coun
sel to appear before the dfnvaesing
boards in many counties. The demo
crats say they have given up the state,
but our best information is that they
will appear before the boards tomorrow
prepared to do all in their power."
Chairman Babcock has instructed
Holton to employ all the counsel neces
sary to protect the republicans rights.
Chairman . Babcock now estimates
that there will be 255 republicans in the
Eien Missouri Is Lost.
St. Louis, Mo., Nov. 8. There is to
day almost no doubt the republican
state ticket has been successful. In
comparison with two years ago the re
publicans had a plurality of 29,661, to
overcome. Fifty-seven counties out of
114 show a net republican gain If 18,729.
In the house of representatives the re
publicans have made gains enough to
give them a joint ballot majority, but
the senate will remain democratic. In
the congressional districts it is now
fairly established the first, Hatch's, the
fourth, Ellison's, the sixth, De Ar
mond's, the seventh, Heard's, the
ninth, Champ Clark's, the thirteenth,
Fox, s, the fourteenth, Arnold's, and the
fifteenth, Morgan's have been carried
by the republicans. The eighth,
Bland's, is still in doubt, also the third,
Dockery's. The tenth and eleventh,
St. Louis, are republican. .' The only
sure democratic districts are the second,
fifth and twelfth.
Gompers Writes to Cleveland.
New York, Nov. 8. The Sun says
President Samuel Gompers, of the
American Federation of Labor, sent the
following telegram to President Cleve
"Without much concert of effort by
organized labor, the people have meas
ured at the polls your assumption of the
unconstitutional and. unwarrantable use
of the military power to crush labor.
Though th changes may benefit us
little, the rebuke will nevertheless be
appreciated and remembered."
Plenty of Contests.
Washington, Nov. 8. The indications
are the 54th congress will open with
numerous contests for seats in the house
from the Southern states. Reports re
ceived at the republican headquarters
make it plain that unless there is a
change either of mind or conditions
there will be at least three contests in
Louisiana, one or two in Virginia, some
in North Carolina and Tennessee, with
a possibility of contests in Alabama,
Kentucky and Arkansas.
Tote for Greater Mew York.
Brooklyn, Nov. 8. According to fig
ures received thus far at the police
headquarters, consolidations, as far as
Brooklyn is concerned, has been lost by
about 100 votes. Counselor Shanks,
secretary of the Consolidation League,
claims, however, consolidation has been
carried by a small majority. It will
make no difference whether the vote is
found to be in favor or against, as the
matter will have to go to the legislature
in any event.
Ormsby County Complete.
Carson, Nev., ' Nov. 8. The complete
count of Ormsby county gives the repub
lican a small majority for nearly every
office on the state and county tickets, the
silver party getting the lieatenant-gov
ernor the university regent on the state
ticket, and sheriff, assessor, auditor, re
corder and district attorney on the coun

deserters are arriving in New Chang in
large numbers panic stricken. A Japan
ese flying Bquadron is reported to be 100
miles off New Chwang.

GAVE HIM MORE LIGHT.
The Sexton Lost Mo Time In Doing the
"I was sexton of Grace church when
Rev. Mr. Blank was' rector there," says
a writer in the Utica Observer. "It was
a summer night and rather warm, so
when the rector commenced his sermon
I turned down the gas in the body of
the church to make it a little cooler.
"The text that nig-ht was, if I remem
ber it, 'Let there be light.' I was sit
ting in the rear part of the church, not
paying particularly close attention to
the sermon, nor, in fact, to anything
else. Suddenly the rector exclaimed
" 'More light! More light!"
"I jumped to the stop-cock in the gas
supply and turned on the gas full head
all over the church. Well, sir, you
ought to have seen those people! Some
of them xaughed right out, and those
that didn't had hard work not to. I
found out afterward that when the
' rector said 'More light!' . he was not
giving directions to me, but quoting
tne aymg words ol Uoethe."
