FRIDAY, NOV. 19, 1897.
Two relief expeditions from Nor­
way will patrol the Spitzbergen seas
to look for Andree. A cruise after a
missing balloon is something new in
marine navigation.
G eorgia is proposing to abolish
football foolishness by foolish pro­
hibitory legislation. A law to pro­
hibit people taking the itch or whoop­

T he republican strength in the
south continues to grow year by
year and congress by congress. The
56th congress will have the largest
southern republican representation
in history.
The Cleveland football team was
mobbed and considerably battered by
a gang of loafers at Oberlin, O. It
was a great outrage, of course—not
because serious injuries were inflict­
ed, but because they were not inflict­
ed according to the rules of the game.
T he more the November election
returns are studied the more satis­
factory they appear. 140,000 ma­
jority in Pennsylvania; 28,000 in
Ohio, 31,000 in Iowa, and gains suf­
flcient in the Kansas local elections
to insure a republican clean-up in
the next state election, are good
enough for an off year. And then
there is a clean victory in the demo­
cratic stronghold of Maryland, in­
suring a republican to succeed Gor­
man in the senate.
The republicans have carried Mary­
land. electing a majority of the legis­
lature. This result was largely
brought about by the determination
of the intelligent democrats of the
state to get rid of Gorman and his
His term in the United States
senate ends on March 4, 1899, and
the republican victory in his state
means the certainty that Maryland
will send a republican senator to
succeed him. New York will also
send a republican to the senate in­
stead of Murphy. This makes 45
republican seats certain out of a
membership of 90
That body now stands 43 straight
republicans, 4G democrats, populists
and silver republicans, with one
vacant seat from Oregon. But Sen­
ator Kyle of South Dakota, while
nominally a populist, was re-elected
by republican votes, and can be
counted on to vote with the republi­
cans if his aid shall be needed on any
party question, with the possible ex­
ception of some measure touching
the currency.
Thirty states will elect senators
for the term beginning March 4, 1899,
of which twelve have been con­
sidered doubtful. Maryland was one
of these, and her seat is now certainly
republican. Of the states now rep­
resented by republican senators there
is no danger of loss except in the
cases of Washington and Colorado;
while the republicans will elect a
senator to the seat now occupied by
Murphy, and they stand a chance to
win in New Jersey, West Virginia,
Indiana, Wisconsin and California,
all now represented by democrats.
So it is pretty certain that the re­
publicans will have a clear working
majority in the senate after March 4,
1899, and will be able to control legis­
lation exclusively for the last two
years of McKinley’s term.

Bingley on Prosperity
Congressman Dingley, in his ad-
dress in Boston on the 11th, said:
“A great many people in this
country are wiser than they were
five years ago. Some, who study
maxims rather than markets, deny
that there has been any restoration
of confidence or any revival of busi­
ness. Others, who are not entirely
blind to facts, admit the improve­
ment but insist that it comes in spite
of protection, from what they term
‘natural causes.’ Still others, like
Bryan, contend that the improve­
ment is only temporary because of
a short crop of wheat abroad and
that business will presently grow
worse and worse unless we have 16-
to-l free silver on our hook. I leave
our free-trade friends to reconcile
their antagonistic explanations of
the failure of their theories, simply
remarking that the common sense of
the people concludes that the re­
peated coincidence between the pro­
tective policy and prosperity and be­
tween the overthrow of that policy
and adversity has established the re­
lation of cause and effect.”
