United States Senator J. B. Foraker last night author ized the following statements. "The de feats we have sustained in the city and in the state have no relation to national politics but are due solely to local and other Whether right or not the belief obtains that the great mass of voters have not had any proper representation- in nominating conventions and tbat a man with an ambition to engaee in the public- service had no opportunity unless he was fortunate enough to be put on a prearranged slate. It was natural to expect that sooner or later this would be resented.

In large part that is what the defeats of yesterday meant. It will be easy to cure this trouble. The way is to return to the old fashioned practice of having real conventions at which all who aspire to nominations will have an equal chance. There were other causes that contributed to our defeat that will occur to every one familiar with the situation, but I don't care to discuss them for they will pass away with this election."
