TUE MAIS CAUSE HF DEFEAT.
The defeat of Tuesday being a general one all over the country, there must have been one general cause. Local reasons may have contributed here and there to help the democrats. The school-law agitation in Wisconsin and Illinois hurt the republican tickets in both these states. Nebraska republicans suffered from the fact that the vote on prohibition was coupled with the vote for congressmen and state officers. The Farmers’ Alliance, the majority of whose membership is recruited from the republican wing, brought about the great falling-off of the vote in Kansas. Other causes helped th** other -ido in other sections.
But the main cause of th** crushing defeat, which is as unexpected as it is general, is the delay in the passage of the McKinley hill. Had It been pa--*'*! a month of two earlier In the '■.•-.-ion, it would have been greatly to the advantage of th* republican party. 'I ne law is a highly meritorious one. It is, despite all that was said against it, tin best, the most just and equitable tariff measure that has ever been passed, it is a measure that will prove a blessing to the whole country, to all olasso- of our citizens, and mostly to those who, by the deception of the democratic press and party were most incited to oppose it, the laboring classes. It b a law that has come to stay. It is a protective law, and no matter how much it may be amended or changed as time goes on, it will retain its protective character as long as. the wages of labor in this country are higher than they re in Europe Already, although not yet operative In all Its proc -ions it proving Itself to be all that its framers claimed for it. The marveiou increase of business since its passage, the marked activity in the manufacturing industries of the country, the fact that labor is in greater demand than it hasbeen fora long time aud commands better wages-all these facts are testified to a- true from partisan and non-partisan sources and therefore go unquestioned. Tile McKinley law is and will soon proof itself a blessing.
But the people were not given time to inform themselves fully about the new measure, or to watch its influence in trade and business. Instead of three to four months, only four weeks were

An article in a recent issue of the Aye of Steel calls attention to the fact that skilled mechanics, in all that the term implies, are hard to secure, and tin* demand far exceeds the supply. One of the causes lies in our modern methods of industrial education. The sub-divisions of labor for the purpose of increasing production, have seetionalized all skilled industries; that is, each mechanic lias his place in alignment, and knowledge and experience is confined to that particular branch.
It is true that tile specialist is Indispensable, but in a long line of apprentices, if properly educated, there will be many who will acquire all the skill necessary to make them competent to grapple with any emergency that may arise. The apprentice who after a reasonable period of service, showy, no adaptability for his trade, should be replaced by another, and not be compelled to serve an apprenticeship and then be dismissed for Incompetency, for he has reached manhood and his opportunities for acquiring another trade are gone forever: tie has com
plied with all the requirements of trades unions; and in compliance with their laws and in sympathy for tile applicant they take him iii and afford him the same protection given to more competent men. In the unions there can be no discriminations, for where will the line he drawn? Hence many difficulties arise between employers' and trades unions amounting often to strikes. A trade is hest protected by the excellence of its workmen, but a man cannot be a iirst-class mechanic who is not thorough master of his trade; and the apprentice who graduates in a rut eau never become such.
Educate the apprentices in all branches of trades, anti the results In securing good work and obviating strikes will recompense the effort a hundred-fold. Such education would be a certain solution of existing difficulties.
Senator Sherman never uttered a truer sentiment than when he said in his recent, Pittsburg speech that it would be wise to take the appointive power from the representatives of the people in congress To compel a congressman to make recommendations for federal offices and thus virtually appoint them aud then to hold him responsible for all these appointments and visit upon him tile resentment and disappointment of those who vainly tried to get an office under and through him, I- one of the most unjust and cruel features of American polities. It is an unwise policy too. The representatives of tit** people would be much better law makers if thcv wert not hampered iii all they undertake to do by the demands of. and the consideration which they must necessarily pay to the applicant for office.
A liberal reward will be paid 1 o the man who will give reliable Information
as to who struck Billy Patter-on.
American people with wise purpose and discernment want both parties and all Americans to have their share a,lid part in the conduct of the government. The people, do not want tile half of the citizens that form one of the great I political parties to have th*! carrying on I of th*1 government and the other half 1 that form the other party excluded as 1 though they had no interest In their I country and could not be trusted with I affairs. So the people, like a pendulum, swing back and forward b tween the two parties every two years. And so almost Invariably one or both houses of conure* arc given to *mt* party and the presidency to the other. A democratic congress now almost insures a republican pres! dent In ISIK.

From the Ladle* Home Journal.
You think til** laws of society art: severe. You do not believe that conventionality is a great sword held up, not to strike you, but to protect you, and you shrug your pretty shoulders and "ay, ‘‘I know I was doing nothing wrong, and I don’t care what people say.” Now, my d* ar, you must care what people say; the world is a great judgment court, and usually the Innocent and the ignorant arc protected by it, though occasionally some «»ne falling into th*: mire of scandal aud gossip, I* brought Into the court all bedraggled and disfigured, and the judge, nut t ing able to *>* e the virtue that i> underneath, decides against the victim, a, d til because sh** did not care what the world -aid. I .vKb you would thinkeven of the most innocent things.
Sometimes I fear you think I am a little bit severe, but I have known so many girls who were mu thoughtless, yet so good, aud who only found protection in the sword of conventionality. It may hang over your bead, as did that ut Damocles, hut it t a* a warning. D will protect you from evil-speaking, from the making of injudicious friends, aud it will insure you much more pleasure than if all the world rail helter-skelter aud bi ame like a wild Irish fair day.
Conventionality protects you, a* doe -the best mother frowning ai and forbidding nit only that which Is. but also that wbi Ii looks wrong.

Secretary Proctor has received a present. of a new Enfield rifle* from the English government as a sample of the style of arm now in rho in tho British service. It is handsomely incused in a polished wooden box, w ith silver plates and corners, and lined with blue velvet. It is of the latest magazine pattern, thirty caliber, and weighs about ten pounds. The action is exceedingly strong and positive, Hie breech mechanism being thoroughly automatic. The magazine rn a sheet iron case half an inch thick aud about four inches square, fitting to th** under side of the lock.

From tin* Davenport Tribune * peculiar way to !ind water in a dry well was recently demonstrated near here. A resident it, the suburbs had a well dug deep. The well was completed and walled, but as dry as powder. I pen the suggestion of an old well digger, a half bushel of sail was emptied into ll;** well, and in a few days water rose to wit,Kin thro*' feet of the top. Th* vvell-digger accounts for this by saying that, after th* salt was thrown into the well, craw bsh - tented the -alt and made their wax from the stream in the ground to the ..tit, thus giving the well a living sir, an, it water from tin crawfish hole-.

given from the passage of the bill till the day of election to learn all about it. This was too short a time to instruct the people on the subject. It was not too short, however, for the democratic opponents of the measure, who recognized the benefi.-lal influence which the bill would have un business and the corresponding io-s of adherents which it would cost t'n** democratic party, to make .t vigorous * unpaign of slander aud misrepresentation against it. Persistently. day after day. without lotting up an hour until the t ai** of voting—the democratic press tilled the minds of the people with a certain district lest the increased duties which tie* new law' presented for some articles would be followed by Increased prices of all commodities. “Higher prices"' and “down with the McKinley bill was the word and the battle-cry of the democratic leaders and organs, and hundreds of thousands of voters took it up and echoed it until th*1 voting time, who had never seen tho bill and were altogether Ignorant of its provisions.
Had lls*' bill been passed three or four mouths ago, the operations of the new law themselves would have demonstrated tho falsehood **f all these charges; the republican pap<*rs and speakers would have had the opportunity to show up the utter roek!“ssness of the malicious attack.- up n th* measure, and just as strong set:: men; would have resulted in its favor a- was artificially created against it,

It is but a few days since a grand jury in New York wa- in--tmeted by the judge, in very sharp I* rrus, that it had no business to Indict a man contrary to his instructions. The idea that th** grand jury is a superfluous relic of th*' past seems to be gradually getting into the minds of the poop]**.

Texas seems to have gone democratic.
There is a big republican majority in Pennsylvania yet. It will come out as soon as Quay tak**s a back seat and does not atternp to lead.

project of a continuous line of /atis from New York to St. Petersburg is so far advanced that the problem'of crossing Behring straits D already being considered, it is settled that the rest of the line is quite pas.-ible. but crossing the straits presents a difficulty. The recent statement that the depth of water and character of the bottom are favorable to a bridge does not seem to meet with entire acceptance.

You ask what caused the general loss to republicans everywhere. We answer merely the general and usual laws and conditions of American politics. With but two exceptions in a hundred years the party that carries a presidential election does not carry tim congressional election following. In the last case where a party carried a presidential election and then th* congressional election following it lost the next presidential election. The democrats elected Cleveland in 1884 and carried congress In 1886, two years inter, but it cost them the presidency In 1888 and the Gme City said at the time it would. The fact that American politics works in this way is the reason Grover Cleveland said a few days ago that lie hoped the republicans would carry congress now, lie j thought it would give the democrats a ’ far better
