—— The result ot the elections on |
Tuesday last certainly give cause to
Democrats all over the country to thank
‘God and take courage. While here in
Pennsylvania the darkness of political
prejudice, hides trom the tax-payer the |
wrongs that are being perpetrated
upon him, in the other states the eyes |
of the people are being opened to the
‘sophistries, the errors and the decep-
tions of the republican party. Penn.
sylvania might have gone Democratic
and there would have been no political |
significance in the result. It would
have been simply a rebuke to the cor-
rupt methods of the ring that has con-
trolled the offices : nd robbed the peo-
pie of the State for years. But when
Massachusetts, fighting on the broad
principles that divide the two parties,
goes Democratic; when New York,
with the strongest candidate the Re-
publicans could put in the field, in-
creases her Democratic majority by
thousands; when Iowa, for a second
time, repudiates republicanism because
of its broken promises and pernicious
doctrine; and Ohio is compelled to
make a campaign, and resort to
methods, snch as were never before
known or experienced, to save a disas-
trous defeat to the party in power, is
there not reason for Democrats to re-
joice, and look forward to 1892 with
renewed hope and courage.

Legislature will probably be Democrat-
ic by a good working majority.
The Republicans have some hopes
for VanHouten for Lieutenant Govern-
or, who is running ahead of Wheeler
in the precincts that have reported.
They also claim Sabin, r., for Superin-
tendent of Instruction. The Demo-
crats claim that their whole ticket is
elected. It will take fuller returns
than can now be obtained to decide the
fate of the ticket below Governor. In
the Lower House t\ic Republicans will
have a clear majority. The Senate is
conceded to be Democratic by one or
two vo tes.
The latest returns show that Mr.
Flower's plurality over Mr. Fassett in
the State is 40,055. The whole Demo-
cratic ticket is elected. Sheehan ran
13.836 behind Fiower, although this is
notshown in his plurality over Vroo-
man, who likewise ran below Fassett.
The Senate is redeemed, and Lieu-
