The result of tho luto elections has
brought scores of Kudieal growlers lo

and spiteful over the result, and goes
off as follows i
"That Wisconsin, which elected n
Republican governor and legislature

Carpenter mora than to any other hu
man ugoncy. His taunts and insults

be expected to bear, and in view of
the possibility of his scouring a re
election ncxi year a Democrutio leg

calamity that could befall the State.
Mr, Carpenter In tho Sunalo would bo
a still deeper disgrace. Ono thing had
been clearly demonstrated by this
fall's elections. The l'epubllcun par
ly cannot afford to shield its unworthy
members. Tbo time has eome when
some keen and deep tuning is neces
sary to prolong the lifo of tho organi
zation. Tho lopping off of corrupt
members like Bailor and Carpenter
must bo vigorously followed up in
other directions. Whatever share of
this full's disasters mny bo attributed
to the panic and other causes ne bavo
oamuJ, mere can tie no mistake, as to
tho prevailing dissatisfaction with cer
tain men who have stood as promi
nent leudurs in the Republican party.
The future continuation of tho parly
in power depends solely upon the. ac
tion of tho next Congress. If tho
scenes of tho last session are repeated,
its speedy retirement will not bo only
a coriuiuly, but a necessity."

peculiar to itself; for instance, it was
no lospeclor of persons. It seemed
lo have no thought about the source
of a proposition, preferring to look
after us merits iu its purpose and
terms. When the most learned man
in the body, an ex-Chief Justice sub
milled propositions about our judi
cial system, of grave significance,
forthwith a score or more of lawyers
wero on their foot attempting to find
defects in its purposes und structure,
if not in its language. When another
ex-Chief Justice submitted his plan
of purifying the Legisluiuro by iron

"From returns rocoivod, tho total

of 76,000. Tho decrease is greater on
tho Republican than on tho Demo

guined nothing in Ohio. Their aggre

Allen would have been boa Ion out of

"Hut tho Republicans havo lost tho

curs too in the face of a largo Repub

that secured the success of a minority
party there is of course a cause. Re
publican voters do a powerful amount
of thinking, and thvy have a wuy of
expressing their opinions, sometimes
by positive voling and sometimes bv
nu . uving at till, in this cane the
hlter mode wus chosen. Thus the
peoplo huvo given a wurning lo the

"This is tho meaning of iheolootion

"Pains wero taken during the cam
