sembly of that htato will bo republican ,
BO that a republican successor to Sena
tor Fnrwcll will bo elected at the next
Bossion. Tlio unique contest miulo by
General Palmer was one of the most in
teresting features of the Into campaign ,
and ho is to bo given credit for having
conducted it with great energy and zeal
and a good deal of ability. The people
of Illinois wore not pro jxirod , however , to
support liis views * regarding the tariff ,
vrhleh lean too far over toward free
trade , and therefore General Palmer
must remain In private station until a
more favorable opportunity ol7ors , for
the gratification of his ambition. The
general has worked hard for the de
mocracy , and if that party ever has a
ohnnco to reward him it will bo guilty
of groaa ingratitude if it fails to do so.
Till : KKSl'hTS Of THE B/i
Party allegiance was sovordly shat
tered in Tucdday's elections. In every
northern slate there was n heavy defoc-
linn of republicans. In some of those
states this Is shown In'lnrgo doinonratic
gains ; in othoni it appears In the alli
ance vole , which very generally fjmilly
exceeds the highest estimates of the old
parly nmnngcrs. In either case the
democratic party has profiled , nnd its
SUCCCHS ia one of Iho most notable in the
liistory of American politics. It luu
not only elected n majority of represen
tatives to the Fifty-second congress , n
result not unexpected , since it has been
the rule for an administration to either
Lose its second congress or hnvo
Its majority in the popular
branch materially reduced , but it
lias carried states which have been
counted among the most fiocuro in the
republican column , while nowhere have
republicans been successful by the
former majorities. The result very
strikingly shows how easily a largo ele
ment of the American people can trans
fer their hupport from one party to an
other. There is always a vast number
of votord who form their convictions
of political duly regardless of the dic
tum of the party. This year the num
ber of such would Hcem to have been
greater than over before.
In seeking a-n explanation of the not
able results of Tuesday's election , loc.al
as well as national causes must bo con
sidered. Politicians of tlio successful
party will ascribe their victories to the
popular disapproval of - the tariff
legislation of the republican congress , ol
the course of the speaker of the liouso of
representatives , and to the general pol
icy of the republican majority in con-
gresH. Hut wliilo those had their inllu-
once , they wore not alone operative in
determining results. The election of a
democratic governor in Pennsylvania
was duo chiefly , if not wholly , to thofnot
that his opponent has an uneloan record
in public life and owed his nomination tea
a system of biHsism which thousands of
sincere republicans felt called upon to
robulcc. They preferred n democrat of
honorable record , who was not the can
didate of a boss , to n republican who had
dishonored his party and was the
creature of the political machine
dominated by one man , himself
charged with grave olfensos as a
public ofllcial. Undoubtedly tlio great
majority of tlio republicans , who voted
for Mr. Patlison are in full sympathy
with the tariff policy of tholr party. In
Massachusetts the election of a demo
cratic governor was also largely duo to
local causey , while national questions
were almost wholly lo t sight of in "Wis
consin. In short , the contests for state
ollicors generally were affected far more
by state than national issues. This was
the case in Nebraska.
The influence of the tariff question
with the people in to bo found , in the re
sults of the congressional elections , and
those certainly indicate a great dealof
dissatisfaction with the now tarltl
policy. The most significant ex
pression of the popular dis
approval is the loss of re
publican districts in the west. This
cannot fairly bo interpreted as moaning
that Iho western people are hostile to
protection. They are not , and the people
ple of no section of the country would
more overwhelmingly rojeot the free
trade doctrines of the democratic party.
Rut , on the other hand , they do not see
the wisdom or necessity of increasing
duties on a largo number of articles of
common use already suflleienlly pro
tected to render their manufacture secure -
cure against loss from foreign competi
tion , and tlio added tariff charges on
which would bo simply a tribute taken
from the people and handed ever
to the manufacturers. The western
constituencies that have elected
democratic representatives to succeed
republicans have inndo a protest not
r.gainst a judicious and just system of
protection necessary to the defense of
American industries and American
labor , but against a policy the effect of
which will bo to unduly enhance the
cost of many necessities to the people in
the interest of monopolies and trusts.
The result of the elections affords lit
tle ground for the glorification of the
democratic party. The hundreds of
thousands of republicans whoso disaffec
tion has enabled the democracy to
achieve success far beyond Us expecta
tions have not thereby approved the
course and policy of that party.
They have not sanctioned its ob
structive am } filibustering tactics in
congress , its frco trade tendencies , nor
its policy of depriving citizens in nearly
one-third of the states of the union of
their political rights. Tlio republican
defection from which the democratic
party lias so largely profited was in
tended ns a lesson of instruction and
warning to the republican party , and if
the loaders of the party accept it as
such the recovery of nil that has boon
lost to the republicans will not bo a diffi
cult mutter two years hence.
TIIK MIST.IKK OF TIIK AIJ.TAXCK.
If the leaders of the Farmers' Alliance
had boon aa wbo as they wore enthusias
tic , a man of their choosing would to
day bo governor-elect of Nebraska.
Moro than that , the principles and pur
poses of their movement would have
boon vitally impressed upon the politics
of the west and the attention of the
country. The success of the movement
would have been complete , whereas it is
now Indefinite if not doubtful.
An analysis of TIIK HUB'S returns
shows that four-fifths of Mr. Powers'
supporters wore drawn from the ranks
of the republicans. LJoyond all question
the republican farmers who votad for
Powers , aud those who sympathized
with thorn while remaining true to
Richards , were in a position to control
the republican party in this state pre
vious to the Lincoln con voatlon of July 23.
They might hnvo framed Its platform
and dictated its nominations. If they
had done so both would have been
triumphant today. On January 1,1S91 , the
representatives of the movement would
have entered Into control of every de
partment of the state government. The
result would linve been a triumph for
tholr cause , speedy and complete.
They would also have sent throe mom-
bora to congress who truly represented
the producers tuid have given a now
and positive impulse to the coi'wo ol
western politics. From such results us
thcso they would have reaped whatever
o od can bo obtained from the policies
they advocate. This was the opportu
nity open to the nlllnnco loaders , but
they sought success by n moro devious
path. The probable oulcoma h the
choice of a democratic governor
by a minority of the people , If from
such a result the alliance achieves any
Hood for its cause , it must bo by indirec
tion and after long delay. What it has
sacrificed is direct and instant success.
With a fooling far from elation , but
with sincere concern for the interests of
the producers , Tun Bnn reminds its
readers Hint it steadily predicted what
has htipponcd. It cannot bo that the
four-fifths of the alliance who came out
of the republican ranks to support
Powers are well pleased with the result.
If they had preferred a democratic ad
ministration to a republican there wore
easier nnd surer methods of getting it.
What they confidently hoped to do waste
to elect John II. I'OWOM. . They have de
feated L. D. Uichards and elected .Tames
E. Boyd , unless present indications
In such a resuit democrats may well
rejoice. It Is for them a phenomenal op
portunity , rarer far than a day In June.
Bui what does it avail for the cause of the
honest and earnest mon who have been
agitating and organising for ninny
months and who turned aside from a real
opportunity to grasp at u. rainbow ? The
future will show.
CHKDIT TO WHOM CltEOlT IS DVK.
The citizens of Omaha nnd the people
of Nebraska will forever remain in
debted to lion. John L. Webster for the
invaluable norvico bo has rendered in
warding oft the blight of prohibition.
"Yom the very outset ho took
hold and uncompromising stand
igalnsttho pernicious dogma with which
imong leading men at the bar no other
nan was willing to grapple. Iludovotcd
weeks and months of precious time to
the searching study of the practical
operation of prohibition andlusmaslorly
Kindling of the subject before the
thousands that gathered at the
real Beatrice and Grand Island
debates , coupled with his subsequent
pecchcs in the lending1 cities of Ne-
jraskn , contributed very largely toward
turning the tide of misguided zeal for
lion. Kdward P. Boggcn , the chief
organizer of the Business Men's and
Bankers' association , is also en
titled to great credit for the
olliciont work that culminated in
tie overwhelming defeat of prohibition.
As an organizer ho proved himself to bo
peerless in a contest in which the oppo
sition had greater resources in money
and volunteers and had the backing of
hundreds of clergyman and the Women's
Christian Temperance Union with its
compact organization in every city and
village. Although Mr. Hoggoii had
leen ) in public life for sixteen years and
had been honored with tlio second host
ollico within the gift , of the
people during two terms , ho
was mercilessly and shamefully abused
and villified from every rostrum , pulpit
and stump , pelted with mud by every
blackmailing villain who failed
to extort money from , the business
men's association , and by every
mercenary hireling who came
to redeem Nebraska for the revenue
there was in It. It its true Mr. Hoggen
was paid for his services , but the allow
mice was more thnn offset by the loss
ho incurred in leaving his business ir
in tlio hands of outsiders for moro thai :
It goes without saying that thooTlcor5 (
of the Business Jvfen's and Bankers
association in Ouiithn and throughou
Nebraska are each and every one en
titled to duo credit for the unselfish nnc *
enicient work they have done in defense
of tlio material welfare of this state.
Last but by no moans least great credit
is duo to the Personal Rights League
with its compact organization of volun
teer workers under the lead of Us state
president , Mr. Louis Hoimrod and the
ollicors associated with him.
TIIK success of Tammany over the
combination offerees arrayed against it
was expected , but it is none the loss a
matter of regret. The effort to over
throw that political organization was
prompted by the dcslro of the bolter
classes of Now York city to ho relieved
of conditions which have for years boun
steadily growing moro oppressive and
obnoxious , and its success would have
done much for political reform and for
honest municipal government. The vic
tory of such a political oligarchy as
Tammany is , under the circumstances ,
notwithstanding the fact that it Is firmly
intrenched in command of every
resource necessary In a political
contest , most unfortunate , tend
ing to encourage the adoption nnd prac
tice of the methods by which that suo- .
cess has boon attained , while casting1 an
unfavorable reflection upon n , political
system under which such an organiza
tion is enabled to maintain its power
The effect of its victory will undoubt
edly bo to make Tammany moro arro
gant in its policy , with the necessary re
sult of increasing the causes of com
plaint-which united the most reputable
men of both the republican and demo
cratic parties in an effort to relieve
Now VTorkot its corrupt and despotic
rule , and as well to give it greater
power in directing the policy of the
democracy in state affairs.

But Mr. Clcvoljind will hardly ho nl-
owed to take all the credit to himself ,
on the strcnglli bt what ho said several
ears ngo. The Hon. David Uonnott
11111 was a rather prominent and active
Iguro In the late campaign , and It is to
bo presumed his friends will not permit

[ letormlncd , but whatever It was wo may

: U any rate Mr. Cleveland cannot have
all the credit for Tuesday's ' "landslide. "
IT CAXNOT bo stated now with any do-
reo of certainty what the democratic
innjorlty will bo in the house of repre
sentatives of the Fifty-second congress.
Tlio wide dllTcreiu'o in the guesses of the
Now York papers shows the worthless-
less of premature calculations , But it
can bo conlldontly stated that the demo
crats will have a majority in the next
, iou o at least as largo as that of the re-
niblicans in the present house , with the
jhances of its being considerably larger.
There are indications that there will bo
: i number of close districts and consequently
quently numerous contests , so that the
lemocrals will bo thus enabled to in-
: rcnso their majority if it should not bo
nrgo enough to suit thom , and they
doubtless would not fall to emulate the
republican example. There is nothing
clangorous in a democratic house of

Ono of the rules posted in the elevated
railroad cars seems > o bo moro honored
in tiio breach than in the observance ,
says the Now York Tiinos. That is the
rule which reads : "No disorderly or in
toxicated person will bo allowed 'to ride
in the cars of this company. " Men
whoso business keeps them down town
until midnight or thereafter know from
experience that drunkoii and boisterous
men are not excluded from the elevated
trains. It is no uncommon tiling for
passengers on the late night trains to bo
annoyed and insulted by persons so far
under the influence of liquor as to bo
almost crazy. Regular patrons of the
late trains on the Sixth avenue line , for
example , have como to regard the pres
ence of ono or more disorderly persons in
each car as an unavoidable feature of n
trip either up or downtown. But cer
tainly step.s ouyrht to bo taken to exclude
such ollensivo elements from the trains
during the day and early evening- , when
at least three-fourths of the passengers
are ladies. Afoworoningsago nnincidont
occu r red on a crowded Sixth u venue train
which certainly ou ht to have attracted
the attention and the interference of the
train hands , but it did not. It was about

a Catholic church built in London , after

notivcs ol curiosity , wandered Into nn
olllco not a hundred foot from the New-
York Sun building , simply to see how

clmnccs nro that ho would have received
i shock of astonishment that would hnvo
made him gasp. Ho would have soon a
( oniig man wearing a Derby hat and n

something like the framework of a girl's
corset , and if ho had asked him what ho
was doing the young man would have re

And this would probably have scared
old man Gutenberg back to death ,
The queer loolung mnchlno was n
Hogors typogrnph , mimed after Its in
ventor , Prof. John It. Rogers. It seemed
: \\o \ \ easiest thing in the world to operate
it. All that was necessary was to press
i key corresponding to the letter that
you wanted , and then another key , and
mother , until you had finished a line ,
then touch a lover , and there you had
your writing not up in a solid line of
jrand now type , manufactured on the
spot. It is a wonderful machine , nnd a
Sun reporter spent an hour yesterday in
examining it. A description of it in
technical language would ho ns dilllcnlt
"or the reporter to write as it would bo
"or the render to understand. So hero's
what it looks like to a Inymnn :
The whole affair , in tlio first place ,
rests on the lloor four feet square , nad is
four and u-half feet high. It weighs -IfiO
pounds. At the first sight it is scea that
Lhoro are two distinct parts , the hotly a
mass of iron and steel , nnd the nppi r
part , a network of wires , whichwith its
keyboard , looks something like a big
typewriter. In the bowels ot the ma-
cliino tlio reporter could see a blue ilaino
surrounding the mouth of a ismall black
[ > ipo. The keyboard was almost the
ttarno as that of an ordinary typewriter ,
excepting in the arrangement of the let
ters and in the size of the keys. AVlion
you pressed a key it sank down into a
liolo in the board. Connected with the
iowor end of each key was a still wire
which extended back about eighteen
inches , and from the outer end of this
wire dangled strips of metal which
looked like tlio steels of a corset , only
they were notched along the side. These
are the features of the machine which
first strike the observer. When the re
porter looked moro closely lie found an
intricate maze of wheels nnd levers and
bars and moulds and cutting machines.
But complicated as the machine looked ,
its working was very simple and could
bo learned in a few minutes.
The dangling strips at the back of the
machine "wero matrices. In the steel
side of each.was the perfect impression
of n. printed letter , from which a typo
could bo made. At the end of eat'libtilf
wire hung several matrices containing a
certain letter , but the letter was differ
ent on every -wire. For instance , at
the end of ono wire hung perhaps a
dozen matrices , all containing a mould
of the letter "o , " nnd another wire con
tained matrices ot the letter "o , " and so
on , the number of matrices of each let
ter depending on the frequency with
which that letter occurs in an average
sentence. Thus there would bo twelve
or thirteen "o's" for three or four "x's. "
In another part of the machine
is a wire which contains a lot of
peculiarly shaped discs of metal which
: vrousod for spacing- the words. Those
will bo explained later on. The key
board is about ono foot wideand the
still wires as they emerge from it cov
er about that space. Now , those wires
spread out and extend upward and out
ward , so that at tlio end from which the
matrices hang they form almost a semi
circle , with the diameter parallel with
the edge of the keyboard. This gives
nil the wires a slant , nnd when the inn-
Lnx is released it slides down the wire
toward tlio keyboard. That much for
the upper part.
The back pipe , the mouth which pro
trudes from tlio hot llamo of a gas jet , era
a lamp , or whatever may bo used , con
nects with an iron box which is tilled
with molten typo metal. This is soar-
ranged that when a rod in the back of
the machine is revolved it bquirts a
stream of silvery liquid through tlio
And now for the working of the mn-
chino. Fastened to an iron stand in
front of the inuchino was a leather scat ,
just like these used on bic.vcles. Mr. O.
C. lUitlirautItho vice president and general -
oral manager of tlio Rogers Typogr.iph
company , who was explaining all the
things to a reporter , asked him to sit
down hero and to sot homo type. 1 Jo did
not ask if the reporter know iinvthing
about typesetting. Ho simply told him
to go'nhcnd and sot. Having scon tlio
young man with the Derby lint at work ,
and knowing a little about writing on a
typewriter , tlio reporter went ahead and
pressed the key bearing the letter "I. "
There was a little rattle , and then a ma
trix which had boon released by tlio
pressure came sliding down thu
wire and foil into n groove right
under the keyboard. The lower end of
the matrix hung near tlio mouth of the
black pipe. Tlio reporter looked at Mr.
Uuthrauirtobce if that was all right.
"Go ahead. Just vvrito whatever you
want to. "
The ronortor touched "I" and there
was another rattle and a slide and an
other matrix came down on anotnor
wire and hung beside the first , bo that
the moulds of the two letters were on an
ovun line side by side.
"Supposing 1 want to write another
word now , how do I malco the spacer" '
iiwked the reporter ,
"Just touch that brass key without
any mark on it , "
The reporter did so nnd a dislc slid
beside the letter ' f. " Imagine n pluco
of Iron the bi/.o of a half dollar , ono
quarter of an inch thick on one side nnd
then narrowing down until it was about
im thick as an ordinary visiting card on
the other side.
It would form a sort of circular wedge.
Ono of those wedges slipped down witli
its narrow edge next to the matrix of

Mr. Fronde's short study of Lord Boa-
eonsilold , alittlo duodceiiiio volume of
200 pages , is a bettor account of tlio
great Tory loader than can atiywhvru
duo bo found. It is Disraeli , , the mini ,
who interests Mr. Froude most of all ,
and ho has painted a portrait of him
which is both like and life-like , says a ,
London cnblo to the New York Tribune.
The clover Jewish adventurer stands out
in almost heroic proportions from this
small canvass. lie was not a great
statesman nor a great writer , says Mr.
Fronde , liis political work dies with
him. lie achieved nothing that will
last , and his novels would presently bo
forgotten but for their author. Noimit-
tor , Disraeli remains n great figure in
his century ; original , unique , of rare
courage and genius , and now soon to ho
a much more amiable , charming indi
vidual than the public bus liorotoforo
thought him. It is something to have
tlio most singular statesman of histinw
described by the first of living artists.
A Glndstonitmcaitie is impry because
Mr. Froude "introduced his own Tory
ism on many occasions , " and that ho lias
described as "political impertinence , "
whatever that may moan. It would .
have been all right had ho introduced , :
Glndetoninnisni. Those objections are jr
not important. What the people will/
like in this book is the vividness with
which the story ib told , his character
depicted , and the true nature of the man
set forth , Disraeli has always boon a
sort of mystery man. Ho preferred to T1. '
bo. Mr. Froude has sot him and his ca
reer in a clear light. To neither bin
virtues nor Ills fnults ia Ilia biographer
blind , nnd from the lirst jingo to the hist
the book has that fascination in style
which is Mr , Froudo8 secret.
