have to repeat Do you believe the changes in the legislature the result of Palmers personal canvass for the United States senate as a candidate of the people The causes which have produced this The

at tho national capital propose to send out a search party after Grover Though the expresident has come to the front again as a letterwriter on the recent democratic the party mana gers who have drifted into Washington declare he was not in they is the comlnsr The shrewd New York governor joined himself with Tammanys fortunes at the rising while Clevelands tuugwump friends were left stranded by the ebb of the fusion This makes Hill the undisputed master in New York and if he does not trip up within tho next eighteen months he will get the empire delegation to the national The states wherA he made speeches during the campaign arc also promised Heretofore Hill has failed to leave any stamp of his in fluence on the southern They were wedded to their idol and would hear of no one but But he has at last succeeded in breaking the border line and may make further in roads with Senator Gorman to smooth the Gorman is now an admitted Hill The southern congressmen here say that the expresidant is still tho favorite in their yet if Hill is backed by Now York they dont think they can afford to antagonize Hill for The same talk is heard from western Those who still have faith in the expresident point to Massachusetts and Pennsylvania as ex amples of his influence and claim that the victories in those states arc due to Cleveland It is true that Governorselect Pattison and Russell are friends of hut practical poli ticians dontthink much of Every body knows that the result in those states was brought about by straight re who took advantage of an off year to upset a hosslsm which bore too heavily on their In presidential years both states willbe aggressively Prom the talk heard which is the echo of whatdemocratic politicians are saying in other parts of the it looks as though Cleve land was to be laid on the shelf as a rare piece of political to be taken down at times and handled but never to be put to practical use LOOKING FOR HANGING ON TO I Republican

with such other gains as may come witii a presidential will be pretty certain to turn the senate over to the party that is victori ous The republicans are almost as disgusted at the senatorial outiook as they are at the avalanche that has swept them out of tho Another source of speculation what is to become of Don Cameron Although the Pennsyl vania legislature is largely republican there are friends enough of General Hatings in that body to make it impossie to reelect Cameron If General Hastings should become a There has been an apathy mani fest among the republicans great to stay away from the the result has been I think it unfortu nate that the McKinley bill was many and passed so late in the session as to make it Impossible for the people to understand In his senatorial canvass General Palmer has occupied the position which has un questionably brought him nearer the people than senatorial candidates usually I believe his nomination by the democratic state convention was a sharp stroke of policy and strengthened him in the and I also believe had tho republican party nominated a candidate at the state thereby making the question of the senatorship sharp and it would have aroused the re publicans to action and there would have been no danger of losing the legis A Severe Republican disaster has been not only severe on the republi cans but in the character of the

There are good reasons to believe that McFarlauds plu rality will be increased by the official as in several precincts the en tire opposition vote was placed in the democratic One needed reform is the manner of clerks returning election In many precincts throughout the state they have entirely omitted any abstract on the back of tho returns thus prevent ing any complete Only five or six counties
