There Is only one way to bring aboi

This Is nu "off year" In politics , but
none thp leas n great deal of Interest
will be taken In the results of the cam-
palgns In several of the twelve states In
which election * will be held In Novem
ber , from the fact that they will In
some sense foreshadow the verdict In
the national contest of 1S1HJ. The fol
lowing states will hold elections Novem
ber fi : Iowa , Kansas , Nebraska , Ken
tucky , Maryland , Massachusetts , Mis
sissippi , New York , New Jersey , Ohio ,
Pennsylvania and Virginia. The terri
tory of I'tah will also vote on that date
for Its state olllcers , a representative In
congress and n legislature , which will
be entitled to ehooxe two United States
Political Interest will center upon
those states whose campaigns will be
carried on upon distinctly national
Issues , as New York , Pennsylvania , Ohio
mid Iowa , all of which arc now regauled
as certain to be carried by the repub'
Means. Hut there are factional conlllctB
among the republicans of three of these
states , the effect of which may be to
materially cut down the majorities of
the party In the last elections , and this ,
taken 111 connection with the fact that
In an off year a great many voters are
Indifferent , lenders it quite possible that
the result In some of these states may
be much closer than republicans gen
erally desire. There is a very strong
feeling between the Platt and the antl-
Platt e'ements In New York , and ns the
most important feature of the election
In that state Is the choosing of a legls-
ture that will elect a United States
'iiator ' to succeed David H. 1III1 this
iictlonal quarrel may result In keeping
frn democrats In the national senate
'oiu ' the Kmpiro state. There Is also
factional light In Pennsylvania , with
nator Quay and Covernor Hastings
s leaders of the warring factions , the
inse of the conlllct being the desire
f Quay to be made chairman of the
publican state committee. The con
let Is characterized by a good deal of
Itterness and It seems probable that
le party must suffer from It , though
.lore . is little reason to doubt that the
epubllcans will carry the state. In
hlo there Is considerable feeling be-
Ween the MeKIuley and Poraker ole-
icnts. but this is not likely to have any
larked effect upon the election , though
, may have upon McKlnley's chances
> r the presidential nomination. Hush-
ell , the republican candidate for gov-
rnor , whose nomination was regarded
s a Koraker victory , has unequivocally
nnounced himself In favor of Me-
Clnley as a presidential candidate and
ndoubtedly the factions will harmonlzi' '
0 far as the state ticket Is concerned ,

emocraey on national questions assuror

lose states a great deal of political
iterest Is centered on Kentucky , where
t Is believed the republicans have more
inn a lighting chance of winning.
A conservative view of the situation
nggests that while republicans him

dds are on their side they should nol

Comptroller Olson's only defense f
his olllclal misdemeanor In failing I
check up the cash In the city treasurer
otllce Is that it was not customary bi
fore or since his accession to oltico f <
the comptroller to look Into the treasu
er's vault or cash drawer. Ills nnswt

"They till do It , and so long as the ell
loses no niohoy It Is all right. "
Crant that the bondsmen of the la
treasurer will make up the shortag
who will make ilp the loss of Intcrc ;
to which the city was entitled on tl
funds diverted from the regular d
posltorles , and who will bear the e.
pense of the four examiners special
retained to do the work wlilch tl
comptroller was paid to do ?
The assertion that there has boon i
diversion of public funds from city d
posltorles Is flatly contradicted by tl
reports made by the comptroller tu
the new treasurer to the school boar
On Jn'y 1 Comptroller OlMm reported
the Hoard of Kdnontlon that there wi
on .limp 18 a Surplus of $10,705.78
the treasury to the credit of the schu
fund. According to Treasurer Dnmo
theru wus oil June 18 $23,007. 3 to t )
rcdlt of the school fund. The dis
crepancy between the statements of
he treasurer nnd comptroller can bo
explained only by the assumption that
noney belonging to the city nnd on
which the city was entitled to Interest
was on deposit In outside banks draw-
tig Interest for the benefit of the treas
urer alone. That this was the real
state of affairs Is shown by the fact
that although $14,000 was drawn out
) f the school fund for Interest on bonds
within three clays after the disclosure of
the defalcation and when there could
lot have been over 30,000 In the school
fund , there was still on deposit In
three unapproved banks $ .H'JOU. This
ll.screpancy should and could have been
uncovered by the comptroller without
going Into the cash drawer If he had
lint exercised reasonable diligence In
.he performance of his duties.

The promise of a large corn crop
this year gives Interest to the matter
of the export of this cereal , which has
not grown In spite of the efforts made
to Induce a larger consumption of It
jy Kuropeaus. According to the figure *
of the bureau of statistics for the year
ending June 30 the decreased export of
corn was about ( > 0 per cent , the llghres
for ISI ! ) and IS ! ) , " being respectively
,000K ( ) ( ) and 13,000,000 bushels. The
higher price of corn hist year In part
explains the falling off in the foreign
demand , but American corn as well
as American wheat now has to meet
increased competition. Then the rela
lively low price of wheat necessarily
had the effect to cut off the demand
for the other cereal. Is there anj
reason to expect an Improvement In
the export of corn In the near future ?
The probability Is that If there Is any
Improvement It will be slight. It Is
estimated that the corn crop of the
United States may reach U,000,000XK ( )
bushels this year , and If It should reach
that amount there will , of course , be a
material decline In the price , which
would doubtless have the effect to some
what Increase exports , but these can
not be expected to Increase very much
so long as the price of wheat remains
low , and there Is not a wider difference
between the price of corn and wheat
than at present. Hut it seems llkelj
that In any event corn producers who
put any faith in the possibilities of a
foreign market will be disappointed.
It Is evident that Europeans cannot
bo Induced or educated to eat corn and
the foreign market will probably never
take a great deal more than Is required
for the feeding ofstock. Even for this
use the demand on the United State *
for the last two years Jias been very
With n crop of I,000,000,000 ! bushels ,
or oven considerably less than that
amount , the corn producers of this-
country will llnd It most profitable tfi
feed the grain to cattle and hogs , nnd
of course many of them will do this.
The promise , of a large yield of corii
is highly encouraging , but producers
need not count upon any benellt from
the foreign market for this cereal , be
cause there Is nothing to Indicate thai
there will bo any material Increase dur
ing the next year in the demand foi

The largest corn crop this country has
over produced was In 18S9 , when the yleh
was 2,112,892,000 bushels. The governmenl
crop report estimates this year's ylelJ a
2,353,000,000 , or more than 140,000,009 alOV (
the beat record. The estimate of the wheai
crop Is 408,000,000 , though well Informed ex
perts believe that the harvest will show
30,000,000 bushels more than that amount.
The Modern Miller of this town estimate !
that without regard to supply or prices Iron
other sources Europe will take 125,000,001
bushels of our wheat , which will leave a lit
tie moro than 300.000,000 bushels for norm
consumption. That will be ample to guar
antes from hunger , but not sufficient to pu
the price down to the low figure reached las

sharp contrast with the abuse which has ben

Washington Star : The failure ot the Cor

great many Americans who are not at all
Interested In boat races , but unless there are
developments of a sort wholly Improbable
there Is nothing disgraceful connected with
the defeat except the conduct of these gal
lant Englishmen who hissed the disabled and
beaten occupants of the Cornell boat when
three or four of Its eight oarsmen wore doing
the best they could to finish the race.
DCS Molnes Leader : Though two or three
of their number were fainting In the boat ,
and their defeat had been pitiable , boasted
English fair play found vent In Jeers and

the silence which showed respect they were
derided ai.d abused. It Is but natunl that
Englishmen should rejoice In the victory of
the Trinity crew and every honest cheer
sent up was no Insult to the Cornell men.
Hut -when Jeers for the defeated brutally
were added to the cheers for the winners ,
not only was International courtesy violated ,
but the good manners which even prize light
ers respect. It seems that this Is the usual
way for English aristocratic crowds to treat
American visitors. The Yale men met the
same sort of treatment In the International
games , and when the Vigilant met the Drlt-

series of insults and Insinuations.

dent of the United States by a convention of
ono of the great parties. Hut , as a matter of
fact , no convention can honor Senator Alli
son as he was honored by the great conven
tion of his party associates In Des Molnes
on the 10th of July , IS95.
Chicago lUcord : While Iowa has one of
the Uadlng and most popular candidates foi
the presidential nomination next year , the
reference to him In the platform Is moJest
and considerate , without fulmlnatlons t nd
pyrotechnics ot the "favorite-son" order.
With a man not so well known the reference
to Senator Allison would he amusing.
Brooklyn Eagle : Ho lo a clean , strong ,
and able man , and has the advantage of not
having been Identified with any of the fac
tional struggles of his party. If It were
his good fortune to hall from New York or
Indiana , h's prospects cf receiving the romlna-
tlon would , of course , bo greatly improved ,
but even as it Is , there Is reason to believe
that ho would make about as good a race. If
nominated , as any of his competUcrs , more
especially as the political tide seems to be
running in the direction ot republican suc
Globe-Democrat : H there should be any
chasm In the republican party In 1S9C on th"
silver question Allison would be the man to
bridge It over. There will be no such chasm ,
however. The sliver question will not be
seriously discussed In the canvass , as both
the great parties In their platforms and by
their tickets will declare against free coin
age. Nevertheless , Allison has strength rut-
side his connection with the flnanc ? Itsue.
His views on the tariff are as moderate js
those on sliver and are shared by a much
larger number of republicans and If the
tariff be the Issue next year Allison might be
a good man to put up to represent wcicrn
Ideas on this question.
New York Sun : Hon. William Boyd
Allison Is a shrewd and diplomatic gentle
man , excellently well preserved , dignified ,
sagacious , and handsome In 4 more or lesi
Vural way. ite lias the difficult art of si
lence , and knows how to seem profound with
out committing himself when tlcklifh iiues-
: lens arise. His reputation for sobriety cf
judgment Is great ln-th'o senate , and ho lias
: he esteem of his colleagues. He doesn't
make speeches , except when ho has some
thing to say or thinks that something ought
to be said ; and then he f peaks well and
weightily. He Is a typo of the highly respectable -
spectablo statesman who Is never ahead cf
[ mbllc opinion and means never to be behind
It. Ho Is not original and he Is not brilliant ,
or. If he has originality and brilliancy , ho has
laboriously conc-ealcd these qualities. It
would seem to have been the purpose of his
llfo for some years to set forth thoDe neg.i-
tlvo virtues which make up the character or
absence of character of the available man.
Ho Is prominent , but not too prominent ; well
known , but not too well known. Ho has
never made- himself too common. Ho has
been suspected of a strong thirst for the
presidency , but has never made himself
ridiculous In his endeavors to gratify that
thirst. Bland , ample , solemn , and discreet ,
this Is a man upon whom honors should fall
If an ingenious course of self-training and an
agreeable portentousness of demeanor are to
count for anything In politics. If ever the
lightning descends upon Mr. Allison's respec
table cranium , his hair will bo found to bo
artistically ordered , and perhaps a smooth ,
persuasive hand will be seen straying through
It with the seeming carelessness of perfect
art. Ho will be ready If the people call
him. Wisdom will bo In his eye , grace on
his lips , and an admirable little speech , sayIng -
Ing not too much , In the Inside pocket of his
very creditable frcck coat.
