Assuming that ono hundred and
sovonty-flvo thousand will bo the now
ratio for representation In the house oi
representatives , the vote of the electoral
college in 1802 will bo four hundred and
orty-onc , two hundred and twenty-ore

able thai the nbovo ratio will bo adopted ,
for the reason thnt If the basis of repre
sentation should bo mndo higher Foveral
slates , among them Now York nnd Oblo ,
would lose at least ono member each ,
ind such slates will very vigorously op-
lese n ratio that would have this result.
The late elections suggest that it may
jo necessary to somewhat chungo the
Ists of states heretofore counted as surely
republican or democratic , and particu
larly to add to the column of these ro-
gnrdcd as doubtful. It is highly prob
able , however , thnt all of the states which
recently wont democratic will return tc
the republican party two years hence ,
nnd therefore wo place thorn In the re
publican column , with the electoral vote
of each under the roupporllbntnont.

In 1SSO California divided her electoral
vote and Nevada was carried for Ban
cock. With these exceptions , und the
now states , which aro-nll safely repuhll
cao on national issues , nil the states
classified ns republican have giver
majorities for that party at evorj
] ) rcaidonlial election since the war ,
On tlio other hand , the following states
in the democratic column have given republican
publican majorities : Alabama in IBGf
nnd 1872 , Arkansas in 1808 , Delaware ir
1672 , Florida nnd Louisiana hi 18G8 , 1871
and 1870. Mississippi in 1872 , Missouri ir
1608 , North Carolina In 1808 and 1872
Tennessee in 1808 , and Virginia in 1872
These states are now , however , bcourol.i
democratic , although in some of then
there is an undoubted republican ma
jority. Now Jersey , heretofore elassci
as doubtful , has apparently become safely
democratic , while West Virginia is
possible republican state. The demo
Cfnts place Montana In the doubt
ful list , but there is much hotter reaper
for regarding it as a republican state ir
n national campaign. However , its
vole , whichever way cast in 1892 , wil !
not ntTuct the result.
It thus appears that the republicans
will need only ono of the four doubtfa
states , rihfl any one of them will do , t (
win In the next prosldontla1 election ,
Manifestly the chances of their carrying
ono ol thcso states are very much bottei
tlmn those of the democracy of carrying
all of them. The republican party wll
gain twenty additional electoral votoi
from the now states under the roappor
tloumont , and Now York will lose tlu
distinction of being the pivotal state or
which presidential elections turn.
A JVCH' 3/O/MKW 3IKNACE.
The election in Utah resulted in at
overwhelming victory for the Mormor
candidate for congress. In view of thlc
result nnd the republican reverse :
throughout the country , the theory is nov
entertained fn Utah that the Morinont
will make a proposal to the republican !
at Washington that will bo fraught will
the gravest danger.
The republican press of Salt Lake Cit }
says that the Mormon leaders will pro
pose to give the three electoral votes o
Utah and the senators and congressmoi
in exchange for statehood. I
sivys that they would undoubt
cdly carry out their ngreeroon
if the republican government wouli
make the bargain. In view of this men
ace to Utah , the Salt Lake papers urgi
that there must bo no party politic
In the territory until the Mormons tin
routed nnd the people thoroughly Amor
icnnizod. They urge that republican
should stand by the interests of Utal
now ns the democrats did when thoi
friends were in power.
This now menace would seem to out
side observers entirely idle , but ii
Utah it is regarded as a real danger am
Is mot by the press in the highest publl
spirit , regardless of partisan considers
tlcns. The sentiment of the countr.
will como up squarely to th
support of tbo liberals in thi
onwjrgoncy. The republican part ;
wants io votes in congress- the electo
ral college that have Deoif purchased n
the cost of American ideas. It wan tan

Republicans are responsible for abou

tributcd to the emancipation of Utah
They have heartily co-oporatod with th
Gontilcs in their' effort to drown ou
Mormonlsm with good American clti
tens nnd to develop the resources of th
territory. The nervous but patriot !
people of Utah need not fear that n re
publican president and congress , for an
political advantage , will saddle the uoi

A nKM.lllKAni.E DOCUMENT.
The oflicial bulletin announcing th
roBult of the census of 1600 contain
many interesting and important fact
which were omitted from thatolographl
ThAj population ol the United States
exclusive of whites in Indian TerrI
tory , Indians on reservations , nn
Alaska , it , fixed at 02,460,510. The Ir
crease during the census decade wa
12,327,757 ; during the previous doondu
11,597,412. From 1870 to 1880 the popi
latlon Increased 80.03 per cent ; from 18S
to 1800 , 24.57.
In explaining this marked falling ol
in the ratio of Increase Suporlntontlon
Parlor attacks the accuracy of the cor
BUS of 1870 and 1880 , nnd under the soi
of the gorornuumt discredits a formo
government work. "Upon their fact
figures , " says Superintendent
'ortor , "show that Hie population has
ncrcnsed between 1880 nnd 1890 only
27,315 moro than between 1870 nnd
880 , while the rate of increase- has tip-
mrontly diminished from 30.03 to 21.57. "
Jurlng the past ton years the Immlgra-
ion to thfs country was the largest In
any decade In its history , aggregating
6,210,013. The proportion of aged porous
ous among immigrants is Insignifi
cant. They are generally young nnd

Superintendent Porter confesses thnt
lis enumeration Is disappointing. II
votild Indicate a diminution In tlio fe
cundity of the population or nn alarming
ncrcaso of the death rale , neither of
vblclV can bo sustained by reliable data ,
Porter , however , takes the bull by the
and boldly declares that the cen
sus of 1870 was grossly deficient , parlicu-
arly in the bouthorn states , and assorts
that It should have bocn forty millions
nstoad of thirty-eight and a half mill-
If it wore possible by rncro Assertion
, o inflate the census of 1870 tlio ratio o (
increase in tlio two decades would moro
nearly correspond nnd sustain tbo cor
rectness of the present enumeration.
But the fact is too well established that
iho present census is deficient by from
two to throe millions.
While the census olUco must boar the
odium of a discredited work , the responsi
bility rests on the law nnd the system.
The work of enumeration , while con
trolled by the census office , was turned
into a vast spoils machine for the benefit
of congressmen aud political workers ,
'ompotency ' and reliability were not
taken into consideration in the appoint'
ment of enumerators. Political actlvitj
was the main qualification , and the ro >
suit is shown in a work confessedly dis
appointing to the country and unjust tc
scores of cities and states.
TII'O INSTRUCTIVE LESSONS.
The defeat of the republicans in Penn
sylvania and Michigan , whore the can
didates of that party for governor wore
both mon having unclean records , is n
lesson that the party cannot afford to let
pass unheeded , and it is gratifylilpr to ob
serve that republican newspapers nro
impressing it upon tbo attention of the
parly. Referring to tlio result in Penn
sylvania , the Boston Advertiser remarks
that It was not unexpected by the coun
try and is anything but discreditable to
the state. There has rarely boon n
bolder instance of politicians doflantlj
braving public opinion than was the
nomination of Dolamator. The partj
was notified before ho was nominated
that charges of the most damaging
character would bo mndo against hid ,
but so completely wore its represents
tivos under the domination of Mr. Quaj
that the warning was unheeded. Not
only was it clearly established thnt the
republican candidate for governor hut ]
been guilty of corrupt practices in order
to obtain a seat In the state senate , bul
what was equally to his disadvantage lie
was known to bo the more creature ol
the machine which is in the control ol
ono man , himself with a record to do
fond. The result was that a ropubllcat
plurality of nearly eighty thousand twc
years ago was changed to a democratic
plurality. There wore fifty thousand republicans
publicans in Pennsylvania who though !
it their duly , as honest. men , to robuk <
the nomination of a corrupt politlcinr
with the yoke of a boss around his ncok.
The situation In Michigan was somewhat -
what similar. The republican candidate
for governor was charged with brceche :
of trust while- holding public office , am
ho not only did not disprove the charges
but admitted some of the most serious o
thorn , and undertook to justify his con
duct by saying that ho had restored thi
money again and the state had los
nothing. But there were a largo number
bor of honest mon among tlio republican !
of Michigan who declined to accept thii
defense , and consequently a ropubltcar
plurality of over seventeen thousand tw <
years ago was reverted and the dome
cratlc candidate for governor elected bi
ton thousand plurality. The republican
responsible for- this did their duty ai
honest men and good citizens.
Everybody can understand the natun
of thcso lessons. Both Ponnsylvanit
nnd Michigan are unquestionably republican
lican states , but the majority of thoi
people demand that public olllcials filial
bo mon of upright character and knowi
integrity. Their regard for honesty i
stronger than their party sentiment
And what is true of these states IB tru <
of nil. The people may sometimes b
misled into supporting corrupt nnd die
honestmen , , but when they know amai
is wanting in integrity they can bo depended
ponded upon to reject thorn , whntovo
his claims as a partisan. The ropub
llcan party can nowhere afford to pu
forward for public office men whos
records are not clean and irreproachable

lU-nad-AVIniicrs' Organizations Snld to
Have Minimized IJI\VCHMIICHH. : |
Prof. "SV. T. Harris , United States
commissioner of education , recently
pointed out that in the state of Massa
chusetts during tlio last twenty-live
years the. proportion of crimes against
persons ol property to the population
of the state has decreased 41 per cent.
This the Boston Advertiser construes as
nn argument in favor of the reforms
the labor organizations nro working1
to effect. "Wo know , " it says , "that
the number and coat of the publio schools
and the extent of the education fur
nished by them have boon increasing
during this period moro rapidly than
the number of the inhabitants. Tire
compulsory education law , the law
forbidding the employment 'of il-
lltornto youth in the mills and
mercantile houses , and every on-
nctrnont to decrease Illiteracy have como
into oxiatonco within this tlmo. It Is ,
therefore , perfectly logical to conclude
that there Is a relation of cause and effect -
foct botwcon the diminution of hoi nous
crime and the advancement of public ed
ucation. But wo have no right to
indulge in any complacnncy. So long
ns an overwhelming majority of crimi
nals , including all Kinds , can read and
write , and a Btill moro ever
wholinlng majority of the worst kinds of
criminals can do so , It is utter lolly for
any ono to sny that education and good
citizenship nro synonymous terras.
There is still a great field for improve
ment la public education itnolf , and there
nro otlior great Holds for the moral ro-
formertho Industrial reformer , the social
reformer and the religious roforrnor to
cultivate. If any of these Holds nro loft
untillcd the state will suffer from the
presence of poisonous weeds. "
