The election in the old Keystone glo-
riously resulted in the election of Rob-
ert E. Pattison for Governor. His ma-
jority is not yet definitely ascertained
but the latest figures before going to
press show it to be something over 18,000
Iv will require the official count to tell
whether the balance of the State ticket
has been elected or defeated, but if the
Pattison majority swells up to the fig-
ures that may be expected, Black and
Barclay may be elected by small major-
ities. Ifit hadn’t been for the use of
boodle by the desperate Boss fand his
corrupt hench men, there isno question
that Pattison’s majority would have been
40,000 and the entire Democratic State
ticket would have been elected. Three
Democratic congressmen havebeen gain-
ed, one in the Bucks district, one in the
Lackawanna district and one in the
Beaver district. The Republican ma-
jority in the Legislature has been great-
ly reduced, and counties heretofore
strongly Republican has turned over
into the Democratic columns. Dela
mater looses his own county by 1000,
and State chairman Andrews is de-
feated for the Senate in a district that
formerly gave over 2,000 Republican
Philadelphia and Lancaster county
alone stand solidly republican. Al
leghany gives but 2.000, Chester but
600, and otaer strongholds of repub.
licanism are broken up in the same
way. Dick Quay, whose “Pap” was
t> be “vindicated” squeezed into the
Legislature by 116 votes in a county
that should have been good for 1,000,
and so it is all over the State. Unex-
pected Democratic gains and uhexpect-
ed Democratic victories.

The result shows Democratic gains
giving the Legislature to the Democrats
and thus securing the election of a
Democratic goverr.or and the election of

The Democrats of New York make a
gain of five Congressmen. They will
have a majority in the State Legislature
which will secure a Democartic U. S.
Senator in"the place of Evarts.
The result in Indiana, the home of
little Ben Haraison, was simply glorious.
The State carried by 16,000 Democratic
majority, the Legislature largely Dem-
ocratic, and eleven of the thirteen con-
gressmen Democrats. Little Ben went
home to vote.
Five Democratic congressmen gained
sure, with the probability of Winans
election, which would make six. The
Michiganders evidently don’t like a
gressmen. In North Carolina eight
Democratic congressmen to one Repub-
lican, with a Democratic majority of
20,000. In South Caralina the Demo-
crats elect six out of the seven congress-
man. Georgia, 40,000 Democratic ma-
jority, and a solid Democratic delegation
to congress. Louisiana, all Demo-
cratic congressmen but two. Florida,
Democratle congressmen elected and a
bigger Democratic majority than usual:
Mississippi and Alabama,solid Democra-
tic delegations to congress and increased
majorities. The same in Texas where
they are always Democratic. Mills comes
back to congress while McKinley is left
at home. Tennessee also stands in the
Democratic column as firm as ever
while Arkansas resents the outrage upon
Brockinridge, by sending him back to
congress by an overwhelming majority,
and making a clean Democratic sweep.

good deal of nonsense out of the heads
of the Republican leaders. In all rro-
bability that Force bill will never be
heard of again. There is nothing like
a good thrashing to give some people
sense and make them behave decently.

The professional politicians may
eventually discover some method by
which Ballot Reform laws may be

system based upon the Australian bal-
lot laws has resisted all the assaults of
ballot thieves and ballot-box stuffers.

The Great Democratic Achievement.
The Democratic victory in Pennsyl-
vania was due to the assistance of Re-
publicans who are entitled to the
thanks ot their State and their country.
But outside of the Keystone Slate the
credit for the grand result that has
been achieved is entirely due to Demo-
cratic effort. The Democrats have
swept the country, entirely reversing
the verdict that was rendered in 1888.
It was a great achievement for them to
carry New Hampshire and Massachu-
setts as they did, thus shaking the
hitherto impregnable citidel of New
England Republicanism, The election
of a Democratic legislature in New
Hampshire means the election of a
Democratic United States Senator in
place of Brair. A Democratic Gov-
ernor in Massachusetts, in the election
of RussELL, is of immense significance,
and its being supplemented by the gain
of several congressmen makes it an
event of great political importance.
Connecticut is kept firmly in the Dem-
ocratic column, and in the other New
England States gratifying Democratic
gains were made.
The yote in New York shows that
the Empire State remains in the Dem-
ocratic column with evidence of in-
creased strength in that quarter. Ohio
shows largegains of Democratic congress
men and the tidal wave of Democracy
has swept the entire West, where
many congressmen have been gained.
The South has rebuked the usurpations
of REED's congress by returning Demo-
cratic congressmen in place of the
Demoerats who were ejected from their
seats to secure Republican ascendency
in the House of Representatives.
From present indications it looks as
if the Democratic majority in the next
House will be 70, and iv may be larger. |
Reep will have to come out of the
chair, and MoKinLey will have to stay |
at home. This is the reward he has |
received for getting up a monopoly
Up Goes the Prices.
Although the election is over the
truth about the effects of the new tariff
is still in order, as told by the Dry
Goods Economist, which says that the
first effect of the new tariff has been to
harden values for all kinds of dry
goods and to advance prices for classes.
Raw wool has advanced and all manu-
factures are firmer to higher. Fine
dress goods are 10 to 15 per cent. dear-
er, and flannel fabrics are firmer, with
an apward tendency. Linens have ad-
vanced 10 per cent. and the tendency
is upward, particularly for handker-
chiefs. Ow all kinds of table linens,
shirtings, hollands, sheetings, burlaps,
toweling and housekeeping linens ‘gen-
erally, advances of 10 to 12} per cent
are readily obtained and trade is quite
brisk at that. There is a tendency visi-
ble to restrict orders, as the demand re-
quires a line of goods which are not
manufactured in this country and can-
not be for months or years] to come-
Buyers know that there is no choice in
the matter, and they are simply order-
ing their lines as usual, with the 1n-
creased duties added.
——The workingmen are realizing
the bard facts and the true inward-
ness of the McKinley tariff legislation.
Instead of an increase in the demand
for labor the enacted bill seems to have
created a decrease. This is evident to
all who are familiar with: the present
condition of the manufacturing inter-
ests. This deplorable state of affairs is
not existing in one place alone, but all
over the country. The benefits that
were promised to the different indus-
tries as the result of the alleged benefi-
cent tariff legislation have not been
realized andi there is no favorable pros-
pect in the future. And stil the Re p-
ublican organs will not admit the
existence of the lamentable reality that
is now existing.
Ended In Smoke.
The grand finale in the late judica)
The grand result, which bas embrac-
ed the whole country, is the reply of
the people to the McKinley tariff act
and the proposed Force bill. They |
have expressed their opinion of a volicy |
that ncreases the cost of everybody's !
living oa ne benefit of a few protected |
interests, and they have declared what
they think about the project of subject-
ing the elections to military control.
The result is a verdict on Reedism and
the - arbitrary supppression of free
speech in congress. It is a condemna-
tion of the revolutionary method of se-
curing political power by unseating
regularly elected congressmen. Above
all itis a gratifying indication of the
advancement which the public mind
has made toward tariff reform.
In short, the result of last Tuesday
is a verdict of the people against Reed-
ism, Quayism, Harrisonism and all
the smallness and meanness it stands
for; against boodle politics, congres-
sional tyranny, the threat of military
intervention at the polls, and the taxa-
tion of the general mass of the people
to increase the wealth of protected

ed to know that the curtain has been
rung down—and it is hoped never to
rise again— on the most sanguinary
contest in the history of Pennsylvania.
Peace be to there ashes.
The annexed table shows that
Pennsylvania has more than twelve
times as many inhabitants now as in
1790; that the increase in the last ten
years is nearly as much as the total
population in 1820; that the growth
has been steady in each period of ten
years, though a little retarded by the
civil war between 1860 and 1870, and
that at the present time the percentage
of increase is quite up to the average
of all the enumerations :
