-of tho people.
In this connection it la -well to ex
plain that tho tablo abore given Is not
.to be rogarded aa strictly accurate.
For tho sake of convenience we have
iven tho percentages In round figures.
Strict accuracy would requlro tho fig
ures to bo writton in decimals, and if
this had been done such an even divi
sion of tho vote in several cases would
not hao boon shown. For example,
Blaine and Cleveland are given tho
came per cent, whereas in fact Cleve
land had a plurality ot 62,000.
It Is evident enough that even if
' tho parties do romain pretty stable in
respect to tho popular vote tho sentl
' inont Is constantly shifting with re
spect to geographical location and thus
in respect to tho vote in tho electoral
. college If tho sentiment of New York
changes from one parly to another it
means a change of 74 votes in tho elec
toral college. Our system of voting
by states for president brings at times
an enormous return for a very little
investment of voting capital.
i In tho course of bis article Mr.
Tracy afilrms that It Is not what might
bo called tho "thundering" issues in
presidential campaigns which really
move tho people. For 'example, no one
paid much attention to tho frantic ap-
poal of the democratic party In 1900
. to presorvo the republic from imper
ialism. At Washington, talking with
some friends after the election, Champ
. Clark said ho knew exactly "what had
caused the re-election of President
.McKinloy. And then he told of mak
ing a speech out in Missouri on the
.downfall of the constitution and the
peril of tho republic. When ho had
finished an old farmer, sitting well in

A Clevor Minister
"To the town of Nlrridgewock. In
Maine," said Rev. Minot J. Savage,
"a strange minister once came to
preach. He preached duly, and, after
the sermon was over he mingled with
the congregation, expecting that some
one would invite him to dinner.
"One by one, however, the congre
gation departed, offering the hungry
minister no hospitality, and he began
to feel anxious. Where was he to

church, the minister rushed up to him
and shook him warmly by the hand.

" 'Why, where do you live?' said
" 'About thirty miles from hero.'
