We believe hone of these states where the populists made theft great life and death struggle has sent a single populist to congress. A.POLITICAL REVOLUTION. The republicans were confident of Winning H decided victory hist week. They would have been disappointed had they lost Kew York to Hill otNew .York.City to Tammany. They expected large gains of congressmen, atld they had some hope of a small majority in congress, which they never estimated more than ten. There was even talk of slight headway in the south, in West Virginia atid Louisiana, and of defeating a few democratic leaders here and there. The results Were in the direction anticipated,as it was notdeemed rational to expect any indorsement of the democratic record, but nothing so sweeping and emphatic was looked for by the most sanguine. The overturning is on such a scale and so wide spread throughout every section of the country as to he properly described as a revolution. Congress will be overwhelmingly republican, but many districts are yet in dispute, and exact figures can only be given later. It is perhaps safe to say that out of the 366 members of the house the democrats will not have to exceed 93 nor the populists more than 7, and that the republican majority over all will not be less than 166. The republicans will organize the house, with Thos. B. Reed as speaker. A considerable number of northern states will have solid republican delegations in congress. Among the number will be Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Indiana, Minnesota, Connecticut, Michigan. New Jersey and Colorado. Ohio sends one democrat and Pennsylvania one, to represent the lost cause of free trade. It had not been thought of that the control of the senate could be wrested from the democrats, but the probability now is that the republicans will organize that body in the fifty-fourth congress, and it is already settled that the democrats will have no majority. A few populists may hold the balance of power, or the republicans may win enough members from the now states to give them a clear majority over all. The changes in the senate will come of the new republican legislatures elected in most of the northern states and in several southern states;" : The emphasis with which the popular will was expressed^ to be judged from the size of some'pf the majorities. Some of these are: New York, 150,000; Illinois, 137,000; Ohio, 135,000; Michigan, 100,000; Pennsylvania, 225,000; Iowa, 80,000; Wisconsin, 50,000; Indiana, 40,000; Colorado, 10,000; Connecticut, 20,000; Missouri, 10,000; Kansas, 60,000; Minnesota, 60,000. ; An'important result was the election of majority delegations in thirty of the forty-four states of the Union, assuring the election of a republican president in 1896 in case the election should be thrown into the house! Such an event is immeasurably more probable than that the democratic party can gather enough out of the wreck of last Tuesday to carry the requisite majority of the electoral college, and so it, must be regarded as a practical certainty tbat the next president will be arepub- . lican. The once solid south is not now a striking illustration of solidity. There is today a practically united north, but the solid south is a thing of the past. Florida, Missippi and Texas are the only states which can be said to be solidly democratic, and last week the democrats of the whole country were trembling with fear that the populists had gobbled Texas. The democrats will pull through with a small plurality on governor, and with a loss of 110,000 of its majority of last year, and will send a populist and a republican to congress: Missouri elects republican state officers, a legislature and ten out of fifteen congressmen, Tennesse has elected a republican governor by a small plurality, and a democratic legislature, West Virginia elects a solid republican delegation to congress retiring the author of the Wilson bill, Louisiana republicans claim three congressmen, Kentucky elects six, and Maryland three, • North Carolina elects seyen of the nine, Virginia two and Alabama one, Peiaware pomes into the republican fold, South Carolina is lost to the democrats, and Georgia elects three populist j»en and is likely to pe a „„„„ state, Altogether there will be in the neighborhood of forty republican from the old soiia 8Qwth i» the flftY»fourth congress, The aewxmitg have test in leadership as — - . ., Wilkm.

Kossuth gives him 682, Dickinson 527, and Emmet 584. His election never having been in doubt, less attention was paid to the vote, and some election boards failed to note it on the envelope containing the returns. In the greater portion of Iowa there seems to have been a falling off in the total vote, along with an increase in the republican vote. This mean's that the democrats were discouraged by the tactics of their leaders in refusing in half the districts, to put up democratic candidates to be voted for. In most of the districts probably more republicans than usual staid at home, assured that their votes were not needed. Many democrats voted the republican ticket, and many other democrats refused to vote, and the result was an increased republican vote and increased majorities. In the second district, where there was an excited contest, both sides were out in force, but there were great numbers who had for years voted democratic who came into the republican ranks and voted for Curtis and against Hayes. The first tirue' in many years Iowa sends a solid delegation to congress, while the state ticket has,a majority of about 80,000. which never was matched in the state except in the^Garfield presidential campaign. The Reporter tells of the results in Palo Alto county: One of the most gratifying-results of the electipn was the result in Ptilo Alto county. Hitherto this county has been very, dose and rarely has the plurality on state or national ticket been one hundred one way or the other. ..Last year Jackson's; plurality over Boies"';'was 36. This year McFarland has a very conifortableplural- Ity of 307, and the majority over all will approximate'100. Every member of the ticket was elected by a good majority. Menzies for county attorney, rec.ejying.the largest majotity, it being 249. Martin, for recorder, has 172, Hodgkinson, for auditor. }57,,and Hartshorn, for.eIerk^43..,;,DplIiver 'carries th s o county by 41 arid the district by over 8,000. The race for Judge between Quarton and Cohoon, in the county will be close, but no figures could be obtained on it as thejudgtjs of election failed to refcprd it on the outside tally sheet; Mr. Qohpbn, though, will have a small 'inajor- tiy.\ No figures could be obtained on coroner, but Henry is undoubtedly elected by a good majority. Complete returns from all of the thirty-three precincts of Kossuth county were iiot ill until Thursday morning. The work of summing up Wits considerable, but With the republicans, who did most of it, the results were a Very satisfactory compensation. The total vote on secretary of state Was 3181. Of this number, McFarkfld received an even 1930; Dale, democrat, received 1026; Crane, populist, received 185, and Mitchell, prohibitionist, received 21. McFarland's plurality over Dale was 905, and his majority over all was 699. On the vote for Congressman, the total fell oil 41 votes, being 3118. Mr. Dolliver received 1923 to 1195 for ;V,ak- er, and his majority was 728, c'j 29 greater than that for the repul/ 1 ban state ticket. Judge Quartou's majority was 685, his vote summing up i860, while Cohoon received only 1271. The great fight on the county ticket was on auditor. Mr. Hofius made a strong canvass, and being well known and well liked, and having left a very satisfactory record while in the office 3 three years, he had a personal advantage which the friends of Mr. Calkins fully realized. The latter were ,also aware that the nomination of theirfav- orite left some sore spots. Mr. Calkins lost 138 of the 1930 votes cast for McFarland, receiving 1792 to 1317 for Ho-, and his majority being 475. M. F. Randall, for recorder, ran 65 ahead of his ticket and carried the county by 1067 majority. His vote was 2095 to 1028 for Johnston. B. F, Crose, for clerk, received the next largest majority, 1064. His voto was 2094, to 1030 for Butts.

The tendency to leave, die or jdifi the erott-d continued, and in 1866 there Were only five demderts to 149 republicans, while there Was ah in* crease of 4 in the total vote, in 186? there was an influx of population Which was manifest in the vote, Which ran up to 230, with 13 democrats Voting, There Was a larger iftcrease next yeaf, when 562 votes wefe cast, 80 being put in by democrats. In the yeai-1869 there Was a regular landslide in Kossutll county politics* There Were 363 repub* licah Votes and only 1 democratic, tn 1870,416 votes were cast, the democrats polling 41, The totals for the tett years following were as follows: 1871, 680; 1872, 640; 1873, 645; 1874, 540; 1876, 654; 1876, 867; 1877, 798; 1878, 990; 1879,1095; 1880, 1099, In the last named year the democratic Vote had run up to 254, while Gen. Weaver, the greenback candidate for president, received 87 votes against 150 for Dan Campbell the year previous.

In that year the democratic party cast its highest vote, giving Cleveland 1612, as against 1800 for Harrison. The vote polled in 1893 was a good one for an off year, aggregating 3826. With only 3161 cast this year, there is a mysterious disappearance of 23.7 votes, and the burden of proof as to ttieir \vhere- abouts last Tuesday is on the democratic brethren. This is a good place to mention that the period here reviewed dates from the very year in which the republican party was organized, and that Kossuth county has given that party a majority every year, that of this year being ,the largest.

The fusion arrangement was fbr the sole benefit of, the democratic' party, the followers of which could not be expected to stultify their party record and vote for Baker without some return. The populists indorsed every democratic candidate who with their Votes had any show of election. There was not the least d f oubt -but that Randall and Crose and Barton would be elected without regard to whether the populists supported or opposed them, and so the action of the populist convention in endorsing part of the republican ticket was apparently to keep up a show of impartiality which was a show only. 'The jail tax proposition was voted down, hard, there being 432 votes cast for it and 1366 against, The majority against was 934, The voters of the county, it is safe to say, consider that they are paying taxes enough, The proposition to divide the county into supervisor districts carried by 260 majority, the vote being 986 for, to 726 against, and hereafter each of the five districts, as hereafter apportioned, will eject itp own supervisor, The increase was voted down, 938 to 7H, and flve will continue to be the number, Only a little more than half of the voters, marked their ballets on these questions,' the largest number being 1798 on the. jail question, clubbing rates with other desirable papers than it makes this fall. The rates itadyertises now are with the best republican papers in the country—papers one or more of which every republican reader-likes to have. We can get some papers for almost nothing, and they are worth about what they cost. ' But the papers above named are as good as the gold.

The REPUBLICAN and any two, $2.20; .the ^REPUBLICAN and the whole three, $2.60. These rates are strictly cash in advance. The political situation-has for a year or more been getting decidedly interesting. The interest has not begun to wane. It will not until the next presidential election, two years hence, but will naturally increase.
