The result ol the oloctiona In the now
states will 1)0 satisfactory to republicans
generally. It Is nil that the most san
guine expected , and much hotter thnn
the grout majority of intelligent repub
lican ohscrvcm liail counted on. As to
South Dakota , it wns simply a question
of maintaining hist year's republican
majority of fifteen thousand , and the
indications are that thla 1ms boon in
creased. In North Dakota , where the
republican majority wns nearly
twelve thousand , it was feared that
local Issues and factional quarrels
would endanger the success at the late
election of u portion of the republican
ticket , particularly the candidate for
congress. The result is a complete re
publican victory , though apparently by
a somewhat reduced majority from that
of last year. In 1833 Washington's re
publican majority wns sc'on thousand ,
and the indications nra that this has
been maintained , if not increased. The
result In Montana will bo as gratifying
to the republicans of the country as it
will bo disheartening to the democrat ? .
The struggle in that state was more
sharp and earnest than in either of
the oilier now states , and at the outset
of the campaign the democrats ap
peared to hnvo a > very decided ad
vantage , They had elected a majority
of the constitutional convention owing
to republican disaffection , thus over
coming a republican majority of five
thousand in the election of last year ,
and they began the contest which ended

most favorable circumstances for their
success Up to the closing hour of the
campaign the democrats professed
themselves confident of getting every
thing oxecpf. the representative in
congress , and republicans felt
no certainty of securinir anything
but their candidate for congress. The
moat trustworthy advices at hand at the
hour of writing indicate Unit the re
publicans of Montana have elected the
congressman and a majority of the legis
lature , thus insuring two republican
United States senators from that state ,
a result which , if it shall bo verillod by
later returns , must bo regarded by re
publicans everywhere as in the highest
degree satisfactory and gratifying.
There appears ) to bo no doubt that
prohibition was defeated in North
Dakota and that it was carried by a
small majority in South Dakota.
THE COSSTITUTIOXS ADOPTED.
In nil the now states the constitutions
wore adopted by overwhelming majori
ties. It will bo interesting to again re
fer to the most prominent features of
the organic laws of those now common
wealths , in some of which notable de
partures are made , though in the main
they follow on the lines laid down by
the best approved constitutions of the
In the bill of rights the constitution
of South Dakota contains all the
time-honored provisions regarding the
rfyht of petition , freedom of wor
ship , security of life , liberty and prop
erty , ex-post facto laws , supremacy of
the civil over the military power , etc.
Joined with the declaration of the ne
cessity of a frequent recurrence to
fundamental principles is the averment
that ' 'the bloasings of free government
can only bo maintained by a linn ad
herence to justice , moderation , toinuor-
anco , frugality and virtue. " A notable
provision is that no distinction snail
over bo made by law between resident
aliens anil citizens in reference to the
possession , enjoyment of , or
descent of property , nor docs
the constitution authorize any
such discrimination against anon-resi-
dontalion. The system of jury trial is
retained , but the legislature is author
ized to provide for a fewer number of
jurors than twelve in the lower courts ,
and for verdicts by tlirec-fourths of the
jurors in civil oass The constitu
tion is somowhalradical in dealing with
the executive , legislative and judicial
departments of the government. Re
straints and in hibitions not found in the
older constitutions are laid on the legis
lature , the executive and the courts.
Members of tlio legislature before
taking their seats must swear
that they olTored no bribes for
votes and made no promises in the na
ture of a bribe to Hoeure their election ,
and further , that they will not receive
or accept , directly or indirectly , any
money , puss , or other valuable thing
from any corporation , company or per
son for any olllcial act they may per
form. A member refusing to take this
oath will forfeit his saat , and a member
swearing falsely shall bo disqualified
from holding r. seat in the legislature
or any office in its gift. Sessions of the
legislature are biennial and limited to
Blxty.days. Special legislation is pro
hibited in a largo number of cases , and
provision is miulo for the punishment
of corrupt solicitation of members of the
legislature or other public olllcor.-i. The
governor is given only a very limited
pardoning power. In cases whore the
BO nt on co is death , imprisonment forever
over two years , or a line exceeding two
hundred dollars , the governor cannot
act except upon tha recommendation of
a board of pardons consisting of the
presiding judge , secretary of state and
attorney general , and the governor
must report to the legislature all par
dons granted and the reasons therefor.
The governor has the usual vote
power , which is extended to the
disapproval of items in appropriation
bills. There nro strong provisions foi
the prevention and ptininhinjnt of cor
rupt practices on the part of the execu
tive , or for any attainuts on hla part to
Influence members of the legislature l > i
threatening them with the use of hi ;
otllcinl power. Regarding corporation !
the right to amend charters is reserved ,
the power of eminent domain nHfortoi
over corporate property , curaulntlr <
voting secured to btockholdera , am
consolidation of competing railroai
lines forbidden. Railroads are < loclare <
public highways , subject to logls
latlvo control , and full power is re
served to the legislature to regulate
late and fix their charges , Railroai
discrimination js prohibited absolute ! ;
and without qualification.
A notable feature of the North Da
Icotu constitution Is the declaration litho
the bill of rights that "tho state o
North Dakota Is un Inseparable part o
the American union , anil the constitu
tion of the United States is the supreme
premo law of the land. " Another pe
culiar feature , ot the bill of rights
is the declaration that it is the right of
n citizen to obtain employment wher
ever possible , nnd punishment Is
provided for nny intorforcnco with
this right by blacklisting , boycot
ting , or otherwise. As to tlio jury sys
tem It is provided that civil suits maybe
bo tried to a jury of less than twelve ,
and allows the legislature to mnko nny
changes in the grand jury system that
it may doom proper. The safeguards
against corrupt practices by public offi
cials nro strong and the penalties for
such practices ample. The sessions of
the legislature , o.xccpt the first , are
litu ted to sixty uaya. The veto power
of the governor extend ; ) to items of ap
propriation bills , nnd ho also has the
full power of pardon. The right of suf
frage is granted to civilized per
sons of Indian descent who have severed
their tribal relations two yoara next
preceding the adoption of the constitu
tion , and to women having the qualifi
cations to vote In school elections. Per
sons of foreign birth can oxorclso the
sulTrago only when fully naturalized.
There are no radical innovations in
the constitution of Washington except
with respect to corporations. The prin
ciples of the Intor-stato commerce net
are planted firmly in the constitution
and put beyond the reach of the legis
lature. The right to fix rates is
asserted without qualification , pools are
forbidden , mid fictitious stock or in
debtedness is declared void. Compet
ing lines of railroad can nblbo consoli-
nted , and the right of eminent domain
is assorted over all corporate properly
, o the same extent as over private prop-
rty , being expressly extended to all
olugraph nnd telephone companies ,
tookholdors in banking corporations
ire liable to double the amount of their
took for corporate debts , while
n other corporations stockholders
ire liable only to the amount
f their unpaid stock. In all
other respects except in its dealing
, \'lth corporations the constitution of
Washington is very conservative.
The Montana constitution curtails
, ho power and functions of the legisln-
, uro in n marked degree in comparison
ivith the older state constitutions. The
amplest provision hus been made to
preserve the rights of the people
rom legislative encroachment and also
to protect them against legislative cor
ruption. Iu none ot the now states ,
nor in tinj' of the old , has
the popular distrust of logis-
.ntivo power been more strongly
expressed than by the men who framed
the constitution of Montana. This slate
s somewhat less radical than "Wnsh-
nglou in dealing with corporations ,
but it has incorporated in the organic
aw mostof the sixliont features of the
iator-stato commerce"act. .
Those constitutions , representing the
views and wishes of distinct and widely
separated communities , broadly di
vergent in important respite , but all
of them republican iu form , will
now go on trial. That all of them
will remain permanently intict , not
withstanding the care and intelligence
which marked the labor of framing
them , is not to oxpectol. Experience
with their operation and the changed
conditions of the future will undoubt
edly suggest tind compel amendments ,
nnd some of those miy remove provi
sions now deemed the wisest and most
vital. But on the wnolo the people of
the now stales are to bo congratulated
upon the adoption of organic laws which
rolled high credit upon their intelli
gence and their patriotism.

Every time an election is in sight po
litical demagogues are on hand with
loud talk iu favor of the wage-worker.
Tlio other day Councilman Boyd intro
duced a resolution directing the com
mittee in charco of the city hall build
ing to insert in the contract n provision
that only union labor should bo em
ployed and that nobody shall work on
the building longer than eight hours on
any one day. Air. Iloyd expects to run
for sheriff and of courao is gushing over
with sympathy and love for the labor
ing man. When ho was superintendent
of the stockyards nobody over hoard

should bo restricted to eight hours'
And now that prince of dema
gogues , Ilascall , sees Boyd's card
and goes him one bettor ,
lie wants only home-spun material used
in the city hall building and insists that
the contractor shall be tied baud and
foot to iron-clad conditions which ho
knows no contractor could possibly ac
cept. Hnscall Is up for ro-oloction nnd
ho wants to out-Herod lie rod in his loud

man. And yet everybody knows Hns
call was the chief fuglor of the com
bine that kept the city hall from being
built , and knocked the workingmen of
Omaha out of employment this season
by his antics and mule tricks.
The workingmen of Omaha nro not a
lot of gudgeons and suckers. They
know n political mountebank when they
see him. They know what promises
those fellows make before election , ana
how they humbug the laboring man
from one year's end to the other when
they nro in power. They have shown
the cloven hoof too often in the city
It is proper enough for the council to
require of the contractor that all things
belntr equal , ho shall give preference
to Oinuhn foundries , mills and brick
yards over those in nny other locality.
Hut suppose ho wns absolutely forbidden
from getting any material out
side of Omaha. Would not that
compel him to pay any price
that Omaha foundries and manufac
tories would see lit to dutnund V Could
ho afford to take the risk of entering
into n contract with the city under such
conditions V It is right and proper that
preference should bo given to union
labor on the city hall building , but no
builder would enter into u bond to erect
the city hall or nny other costly build
ing conditioned on his employing
only union laborers and mechanics.
Who would bo willing to go on his bond
under such conditions ? With the abso
lute certainty that the contractor was
obliged to employ only union men , the
natural re'utTwould bo a combination
of union vorf man to compel him to pay
nny wngoafat ho risk of forfeiting hU
bond. , - ,
Furthorwofto , disgruntled contrnctors

CONOllKSSJfAN FARQUnAlt , of Now

bills designed to utilize the merchant

, hlrty cents per ton for every thousand
miles traveled by vessels of American
register. The other will provide for
Lho admission , duty free , of all raw inn-
Lorlnls imported in ships of American
register. The recent offer of Mr. Crntnp ,
of Philadelphia , made to John Bums ,
: ho president'of the Gun ( ml line , to
lupllcato the Sorvla for the same nrleo
charged by the English builders and to
jout her time , indicates that
ships can bo as well , if not
bettor , built in this country , and
ns cheap as In England. Mr. Burns

IT is absurd to say that the Douglas
county bar's recommendation for a can
didate for the district bench is final.
The selection of Mr. Clnrkson was an
endorsement of that gentleman's qual
ifications for the.DOsition. It docs not
abridge the right of parties to nominate
candidates , nor does it in any way in
terfere with or forestall Iho linal decis
ion of Iho voters. If the republican
convention declines to nominate Mr.
Clarkson. and places an equally com
petent man tin the ticket , the voters
will have no cause of complaint. But
all this noise and slug-lined froth is
generated by borehoads. It is insin
cere. It is mercenary motives parading
in the gurb of party patriotism. It is
the old mask of bummerism which the
voters of Ibis 'district ' tore off and spat
upon two years ngo.
THE council has lirmly refused to use
anything bub Dodlin trrnnito for the
base of the citi , ' hall building. Conced
ing , for argument's sake , that a light-
colored granite is preferable to dark-
colored for tlio base , can anybody in or
out of the council toll our cili/.oas why
Dodlin grunito should have the prefer
ence ? There : < ro at least a dozen diilcr-
ont granite companies in New England
whoso material is equal , if not bailer ,
than Iho Dodlin. Why insist upon the
particular stone for which Paul Van-
clorvoort is the agent ? Yandervoort is
notoriously an oil-room boodlor , and
whether his influence in getting Dodlin
granite adopted by the council was or
was not corrupt , the inference is that
there is something rotten in Denmark
in connection with this deal.
EVKIIV civilized country is erecting
