COLOIIADO is passing through one oj

Other towns , however , claim that n
city nearer the geographical center
shouldbo chosen , and Colorado Springs ,

THE factional contest in Now York
vhich hardly abated its fury fer th
resident's funeral , is now at its
eight. Most of the towns and cities
ave selected their delegations to tin
oming republican state convention ,
nd in n number of instances "double

recognition. Mr. Conkling leads a
lisputod delegation from Utica. The
3swcgo delegation is also divided. In

Tun nation's ufiliction has bound
ogother moro closely than ever bo
ere the puoplo of the North and
South. That this union will bo por-

itizen of the republic. Some of the
neat touching eulogies of the dead
iresident have como from the south ,
ioimtor Pen Hill was particularly nf-
uctod by his death : "Poor arfield1 !

Notwithstanding the indication
that the coming election in Misslssipp
will not bo conducted fairly , a retro

bulldozing becanio something like ai
established institution. The unfaii
methods nro visibly on the decline

an organized opposition at all is i
sign of improvement in this respect
Tlio shotgun hns almost , if not entirely
tiroly , vanished from the scone. Ir
como districts in the state no effort al
fraud will bo attempted. The pros
sura of popular opinion and tlx
its success in thorn so improbable thai
ityill bo confined to these localitici
which are strongly democratic. It wil
assume the shape of sending in falsi
majorities , which , of course , will havi
their effect upon the result , and per
haps decide the victory , but the arci
from wliich they come is being BO oir <
cumscribcd that there is good rcasoi :
to believe that'progress in the right
direction has certainly sot in.
The shotgun disappeared under pop
ular pressure. It was found to have
a most disastrous effect upon the party
at largo in the north. Imperative demands
mands were sent south Jby northern
democrats that its use should bo dis
continued long before the last presi
dential election. Every outrage cost
the party multitudes of votes.
The better element of the southern
democracy discountenanced it. It waa
found that in the lo.ig run it did thd
party moro harm than good. Thus
bulldozing proper received an import
ant chuck. False counts were substi
tuted for it They were less demon
strative and for the time produce the
same result. But they , too , are having
their legitimate effect in alienating
popular sympathy from the demo
cratic party. The same influences are
brought to boar against them that
eradicated the shot-gun and the night-
riders. Honest southerners do netlike
like fraud any better than any other
men. Thoyhavo entertained a hesitat
ing willingness to keep quiet about it ,
but that , evidently , is wearing
out. Even so-called negro rule is
preferable to the lack of character
which is involved in countenancing
the disreputable practice. The will
ingness has not altogether , disappear
ed , but it is disappearing , and the
ultra fraud managers are losing
the popular support without
which the end of their career becomes
a question of a very short apace of
timo. How long the reforming pro
cess will have to bo continued before
a reasonably satisfactory state of af
fairs supervenes , remains to be seen.
Bo the time long or short , it is ap
Besides the surface indications of
the improving course of southern
politics , there are also signs that the
bettor element of the southern people
nro gaining a philooophical grasp on
the situation. They recognize that
the newly enfranchised class can not
be * denied' their political privi
leges for any great length of
timo. They must bo accepted as po
litical necessities , and made the best
of. It has thus happened that a strong
sentiment has been developed in favo
af education. Senator Brown , o
Ooorgia , published to the world , ii
congress last winter , the deeiro for i
now departure. He put aside the con
Biderahon of state rights , and asket
for the south thei assistance of the
nation in establishing adequate schoo
systems. Somothinir was done , whir ]
served to show that the request wouh
bo gladly acceded to. When th
matter comes seriously up for consideration
side-ration much more xvill bo dona
Hut , meanwhile , the southern people
plo thomsolyes are not idle. Toxa
lias made important advances , am
things are shaping themselves inotho
itates toward the same laudable end
For the most part what has been ao
jomplishcd does not amount to much
but the existence of the increased dis
position to fight the ignorance in the
jallot through education has beer
nanitested clearly , and contains ui
issuranco for the future.
There is another movement thai
will influence the condition of South
> ru society for the bettor , which is
lisappointingly slow at present , bu
t exists nevertheless. This is the ac
simulation of small properties by
; ho negroes. The moment n voter

vondorf ully quickened. Wo are aware
hat with the great majority of the
loutliorn negroes no such advance has
> oun mado. It is probable that the
onant credit system wliich pro
rails throuchout the south is largely
osponsiblo for this. But here
urn there are enterprising colorci
neil who show that there is some
ilight progress in this growth. The
reodmen are also gradually assorting
homselves. In Virginia and Tonnes
oo there s little interference wit ]
heir free exercise of political
iqhta. This kind of thin" is con-
ugious and is spreading. There are
ividences of it even in Mississippi.
Ml great social movements involve
low progress , and , while there are
uany discouraging relics of the bar-
larism of slavery still clinging to the
outh , wo are justified in placing
onfidonco in the promises of good
usults that are contained in the
niluonces which are plainly
, t work. The material prosperity of
he south , of late years , has been al-
aost phenomenal. Considering the
inpavoriahcd condition of the coun
ty at the close of the war , and dur-
ng the years that immediately fol
lowed it , uo section on the
uco of the earth has developed so
apidly as the southern states , if the
evolutions of the last census are to

There is a promising field there for
