COMPLICATIONS IN OHIO.
In view of the row among the Ohio
Democrats it is worth while to observe
tliat Governor Campbell has at least
one advantage over McKinley. He

zation of iris party, and undoubtedly
special care will be taken to take tlie
management of affairs out of the hands
of the local bosses, so tliat tlie treachery
of those worthies can accomplish noth
ing more than tlie loss of their own
votes. On the other hand the Foraker
men—who correspond pretty closely on
the republican side to Campbell's opjio-
nents on tlie democratic—are running
the republican campaign in the state
as completely as in Cincinnati. Only
one personal friend of Mr. McKinley is
on the republican state central commit
tee, and for the first time in tlie history
of Ohio polities the candidates for state
offices were excluded from the meeting
of the committee when it organized
and elected officers.
McKinley is not much of a politician,
and has no grip on the machine. The
politicians in Iris party are not hostile to
him, as the Cincinnati democratic ring
is to Governor Campbell— they are
simply indifferent to him. From tlie
present outlook the entire republican
campaign, so far as tlie state central
committee is concerned, is to l>e run
with an eye single to electing Foraker
to the senate. Of course, that is not
what the beneficiaries of the tariff out
side of Ohio are interested in, when
they put up their coin it will be given
for the purjiose of electing McKinley.
But unless they send their own agents
to handle it, or make sure that they
are putting it into the hands of McKin
ley’s personal friends, Foraker will get
lienefit of it, and the Napoleon of
Chinese protection will lie left to take

Reynolds' newspaper, the only dis
tinctively radical paper in Londan, ad
vocating republican ideas, expresses
the belief that “the principal of mon

producing such imbeciles as the I’rince

All accounts represent that distress is
imminent in many districts of Russia.
The wheat crop is so inferior, and tlie
condition of the poor so pitiful in con
sequence, that in order to prevent a
wide-spread famine the exportation of
Russian wheat is prohibited. This is a
fact that will make the great grain

all the more valuable.
St. Louis Globe-Democrats (Ilcp.): If
the democrats carry Pennsylvania in
the state election this year, or cut the
republican margin down to 9,00(1 or 10,-

irent in the list of aspirants for the
presidential nomination in next year’s
democratic national convention. A
democratic victory in Pennsylvania in
the canvass of 1891 and a democratic
defeat in Ohio would put Pattison
ahead of all others in tlie convention,
with the posible exception of Cleve
land. Should the democratic majority
in Pennsylvania lie 18,900 or 20,000
with the republicans ahead in Ohio,
Pattison would undoubtedly be nomi-
nated iu 1892 on the first ballot.
