We give elsewhere the opinions of the press on tho cause of Gov., Boles' re-election, a majority of them attributing the outcome to the prohibitory law. While directly and Indirectly that is undoubtedly accountable for Iowa's being a close state, It furnishes no suffl dent explanation of Gov, Boles' personal victory, which has probably carried trlfch it tho whole democratic ticket. Prohibition has directly crippled the republicans by giving tho democrats the almost solid German vote of the etate. It is indirectly maklnglowadom- ooratlc because tho now settlers of foreign birth go to that party. Thus In Kossuth and other northern counties tho democratic gains are almost wholly due to tho influx of now voters, which has boon very great during tho past two years, and will bo still greater for A few .years to come. But these facts give no adequate explanation of tho 6,000 to 8,000 votes which went to Gov. Boles and which did not go to Judge Klnno, and no explanation can bo given other than that Gov. Boles' election Is « purely personal victory. It Is a compliment to him for a plucky canvass. It came because the voters like to see a man stand up and show himself. This friendly fooling was further encouraged by tho flno personal address of tho ffovornor, and his shrewd appeals to tho farmers to support him because ho had as ho claimed defended them. The name audience which In Algona scarcely gave him a cheer during his whole talk on local option, raised tho roof as soon as ho reached a point where they could at least passively endorse him. Tho sympathy of tho public was with •Gov. Boles, and 8,000 votes in Iowa Is not too many to bo accounted for by this fact. Tho truth Is tho republicans lost tho election by depending on claptrap. Away back in tho summer tho loaders urged that wo must have a farmer for governor. There was no sonso In tho talk, and what there Is no «onso In farmerti won't endorse any quicker than anyone else. What a man's vocation is has no more to do with his flttioHS for governor of Iowa than has tho color of his hair. And repeated experience has shown that thoso class appeals have never succeeded, for tho classes whoso votes wore to bo «aught have been tho very ones to got away, just as this year tho farmers have elected tho lawyer and landlord. Tho republicans have boon able to give The alliance movement was all but wiped out thlnyear. AccoHing to Chicago Tribune returns; "in Ohio It polled leM than 12,000 out of 700,000 vote*. In Iowa It had less than 1S.OOO out of 875,000. In Kansas It tssrricd but one Jftdldal district out of ton. In Nebraska It was extinguished. In South Dakota its vote fell off one-thlrd. In the east It gave no sign. i n the south It was wined out, wherever there was an elec- tlon, by tholwurbona."

The result shows a total vote of 2,989 for governor. Last year for secretary of state the total vote was 2,408, showing a gain of 681, of which the republicans got 248, the democrats 298, and the people's party 85. In 1889 the total vote for governor was 2,279, or over 700 less than this year. Hutchinson had that year over all, 169j last year McFarland had 162, and this year Wheeler has 112. But this year VanHouten has 172 and Sabin 181, showing that the actual republican strength In spite of the largely Increased vote is essentially what it has been.

Carey's Annual iteport Shows Their Good Coudltlon-A Credit* able Record for Her Term In Office. Supt. Carey has made her annual re' port M the state superintendent for the year ending Oct. 1, and the figures given in it are of interest to every taxpayer. The teachers alone during the year have received over $40,000, and the total school expenses are much more than half the total expenses of the country. Some statistics of interest are as follows: There are 141 ungraded schools, and 21 rooms In graded schools in the county. The teachers number 60 male and 216 female. There are 145 schoo houses, worth $85,000, having S5,64 of apparatus, 1,115 books in libraries surrounded by 987 live trees. The total number of school age i 4,927 as against 4,067 last year.
