j jucsldoatlal year, and only Stato oloe-
tlons were being held, Illinois, Iowa, and
even Nebraska, would all u'o IKjuiocratic.
This state of uiralrH iu lowu, Nebraska,
and Kansas, is partly due Io the ever
troublesome Prohibition question. Iowa
On one side of Nebraska, and Kansas on
the other, already havo constitutional
Prohibition, and it has proven an Injury
and a curse. I do not speak from the
standpoint of an unti-PronibltionUt ut
all, but merely make u statomout of the
aDiiarent and indisputable fact. The
people that Is a groat majority of them
are heartily sick of Prohibition. It bus
not decreased drinking, nor the evil re
sults of drinking; while It has deprived
the Mates and counties and cities oi tlie
immeuso revenue formerly dorlved from
the Honor truflic, and has driven millions
ot dollars of capital und thoiuands of
workmen out of their borders Into Ne
braska and Missouri. I presume I
talked with a dozen lowu men, und they
all, without exception, denounced tho
rroinmtion law, una said uuu u ino eo
pie hadau opiwrtuulty to vut again on
the question ii would be voted down by
a large majority.
Well, while the Hepubllcuns aro not
really In sympathy with tho prohibition
ists, they have coquetted with them, und
pretended to "stand in," and havo really
clone so whenever they could do so with
advantage to themselves, while tho Dem
ocrats, us elsewhere und always, havo
never protended to havo uny part or lot
iu the Prohibition movement. This has
been the condition of aualrs so long that
in theso Slates the Itepubllcan party is
considered tho Prohibition party, and the
Democratic the anti-Prohibition party.
Anil-Prohibltionlsts who now uro doubt
less In u large majority lu all of these
States hold tho Hcpubllcan paity re
sponsible for Prohibition, und me going
to vote it out of power if possible. So
strong is thii feeling und so considerable
Is the ntamKlo of Intelligent farmers,
from tho party of tarllf plundeiors, that
no one need be surprised to sec lowu go
Democratic. If it docs not, tho Itepubll
can majority will bo small. They urn
leaving no stono unturned: they uro
fighting dcserately, In both Illinois and
Iowa, tor thoy know thoy uro lighting for
their very lives. In two years tnoro low
will be a Democratic Mute, if it is not
already. In fact tho movement that will
era long make ull tho Mississippi valley
Democratic, on present isstion and poli
cies, has begun und cannot bo Mopped,
If thu national election woro a year later,
it is doubtful If lluurlsou would curry a
Mississippi valloy Stale. At presont the
movement Is in its early stago, tremulous,
vibrating, comparatively light, undefined,
chaotic, uncertain. It may not be sulli
dent to change lho result In uny Itepubll
can Statu, but If not, wo can wait. Our
victory for tho right Is coming, siwcdlly
and Huru. As It is now (hero is u good
margin for surprlsest
I think Indiana is tolerably safe for
Cleveland. Itepubllcan leaders there
have been In a fever of anxious activity
for tho pust two wooks. They havo held
dally conferences, imortcd advisers
and boodlora from thu Hast, mid are
lighting despairingly. Hut Harrison is
disliked, almost detested, by thoiisunds
who best know him In his own State, und
ho cannot curry it. If ho can tho Demo
crats uro probably beaten. Hut I urn not
iihirmed ulmut Indiana. Well-posted He-
publicans in Chicago say that thoy havo
nut much hopes of ll.
There is u good deal uld nkuit "the si
lent vote," und It is no more creation of
fancy. Hut it will not all go ono wuy.
they in particular, would bo ruined it iin-
meiiHu war-taxes are not kept up, bin
who do not wish to loso their partvstund-
lug will slip In u Hurrlson ballot, und say
nut ii word. On tho other hand, many lte
publicans who uro saying nothing, tinlosi
to uu Iiitlmato frluud, uio going to vote
for Cleveland, lower tuxes, more work,
and bettor wages. Ono very well In-
funned Chicago gentleman, u conserva
tive, wealthy rotircd merchant, who has
repeatedly refused congressional and
older honors, said to mu that hutidiedsof
tho solid conservative husinuss men of
that city ltopublicans who cared more
for prosiorltv than for ikiIIHch, and who
weru satisfied Unit Clovohind hud given
thu country u safe, honest iidministriitiou
woro going to vote tlio uemocrutie
ticket for the first lime,
To sum up, 1 don't pretend tousseit
that Cleveland Is sure to I hi elected. I
urn prepared to bo not greatly disap
pointed if under thu chaotio condition of
volltlcs ho shull lose ull, or ull hut one,
of tho Northern Slules. Yet, I Utile vo
ho will bo elected, und 1 shull not bo
greatly surprised either it ho carries one
or two Slates that have not gone Demo
cratic since lho war.
I base tills chielly on lho following
1. Harrison's uiiKjpularlly iu the
West, esjieclally umong woiklngmcii.
.Many of those who have I Mien deluded
into u belief In protection, and who
would votu for ulinosttiuv ono else, will
not vote for Hurrlson. TIiIh limy Is) de
