Before tho Nnt.lonnl Statlstlenl Association bj- Frederick 0. Waite, formerly n Special Ccnsnft Agent—Some Figures. HE sote "* Nov. 1C.—A society calling itself "The National Statistical association," with headquarters in 'Yftshington, holds regular monthly meetings at the Columbian uni* vorsity. This association is composed of men habitually engaged in mental labor and who might be described perhaps as scholars. At their regular meetings they are in the habit of hearing papers read, discussing current matters and reviewing tin affairs of- nations. At the lasi. meeting Frederick C. Waite, formerly a special agent of the eleventh census, delivered an address on the subject o( "Election Certificates." Mr. Waito said that the recent overwhelming defeat of tho democrat!* party had been accomplished by 3,000,000 voters who remained away from th< polls. He detailed the forces which operate tigainst" a party in power and contribute to its defeat, lie said the results of this election furnish the same bUi'prising features as that of 1892, when 1*000,000republican agriculturists remained away from the polls, while 1,000,000 more voted the populist ticket.' "During the last twenty years," said Mr. Waite, "and also the twenty years ending with the breaking up 'of the whig party, tho democrats carried every alternate presidential election, and vet were always defeated at tho intervening presidential election. To the democrats, 1830 and 1876 brought victories at the polls; 1840 and 1880 defeats; .1844 and 1884 victories; 184S and 1888 defeats; 1852 and 1892 victories. Moreover, during both periods, the democrats carried off every congres-j sional election except the one during' tho Mexican Avar. The forces which in presidential elections bring about the defeat of tho party in power are two: "1. The feeliug against that party is so strong among tho members of tho party out oi power that the latter feels it to be a sacred duty to turn the rascals put, and this year, as well ' as in 1890, tho people took the first opportunity. On the other hand, the adherents of the parly in power aro constantly being disappointed. They feel that they don't receive anything like the care and recognition which was promised. "2. There is an inherent ebb and flow of enthusiasm among the adherents of a political party. Naturally the number of vears from flood tide to flood tide of enthusiasm is determined by the recurrence, once in eight years/ o( the cause which falls in with it and carries it to the maximum height, namely, the storm of indignation against the high handed misrule of their opponents. The operation of these two companion forces is seen most clearly in the case of the three doubtful states, Connecticut, New York and Indiana, in which the general movement in favor of thei party out of power has all but once 1 during both of these periods of twenty] years been strong enough to carry the) election. I '•Two years ago in a lecture at Johns' Hopkins university, having thus, pointed out in detail that the electionJ pendulum swings the mantle of su-l premacy from party to party with mathematical regularity whenever there is 110 great moral issue betweeni the political parties, I said: "There is nothing surprising to the statistican in the Cleveland vote. The republican farmers have not become democrats.' Last year, I sau!, and it is as true this year as it was last, 'the democrats have not voted the republican ticket, but have merely allowed the election to so by default.' , b "To show that tho republican farmers did not voto for Cleveland in 1892, I analyzed the election returns town by town throughout the rural districts of New York and discovered that the rural vote for Cleveland was even less in 1893 than 1888 in every agricultural county of tho Empire state. In Ohio it was just the same. Cleveland's vote in 1S93 was less than in 1888 in all the rural townships of the agricultural counties. This year tho republicans have not cast as large a per cent of the full vote as in 1888 in a single state. Hence, the only reasonable conclusion is that in 1893 the dissatisfied republican farmers, and this j'ear the discontented democratic laborers joined the stay at home voters. "The stay at home vote has increased in New York from 75,000 in 1888 to 185,000 in 1,893. and 425,000 this year. In Pennsylvania it has increased from 70.000 in 1888 to 230,000 in 1892, and to 400,000 this year. It has in- CEeu&ed in Ohio from 40.000 in 1888 to 115,000 in 1893. and to 390,000 in 1894, South Carolina,,when jshe. had 50,000 '''•tor Hayes arid'Tilden. The total v?te this your, however; was not much over 60.000, or about a fourth P£ tho full vote, • "The immense republican pluralities thiayear are,not the result of an extraordinary republican vote, but of an exceedingly" small democratic vote.' "Wisconsin has not polled -for the democratic candidates such a small percentage of her full vote for twenty-five years, In Pennsylvania the democratic party has not asf'on an important . jelectfoq such n "small ;.yp{# f or half a ( «eptury,"- 1'h.e Astonishing- features of ', $he recoil t/election uVe the same as 4 ft/tan* fit'' * QftO ...1. __. •* ^f\f\n *\f\f\ i>innii V\t J , „, , ai juoroe while J,ljeir wen C(Wt'l',043 h ,S3},votes." tMUor Curtl* of AnBmoin Writes n letter to His Wife.

IOWA FALLS, la., Nov. 16.—A new tribe of the Improved Order of Red Men was instituted at this place last evening with a charter list of thirty- five of some of the best young men in the town. Tho initiatory -work was done by tho tribe from Webster City, after which tho newly made warriors and their visiting brethren participated in a banquet at the Woods house. The new tribe, which is to be known as the Muscogee tribe, starts out under favorable circumstances and is officered as follows: Prophet, F. E. Foster; sachem, E. O. Soule; senior sagamore, S. II. Welden; junior sagamore, Arthur Altshuler; collector . of wampum, H. A. Barber; chief of records, Charles Elliott; keeper of wampum, William Raines.. Grand Chief of Kecords A. B.

DKS MOINKS, la., Nov. 16.—The seventh annual session of the Iowa State Veterinary Medical association opened Thursday afternoon with fifty members from all over the state pres- 1 ant. The annual address of Presi- rtent W. B. Niles of Ames shows that the veterinarians had a poor year of it because of tho low price of horses. Dr. M. Stalker, chairman of the legislative committee, reported that ho thought the nest legislature could be induced to create a state board of veterinarians to issue certificates to all persons before they practice in tho- state. In the evening papers were read by Dr. S. Stewart of Kansas City and by Dr. G. A. >1ohnson of Sioux City. Karelin County Farmers' Institute. EI.DOKA, la..

It hud its goldct opportunity, it surrendered to and did thi bidding of the money power and the pco pie of this generation will not trust it again. I expect nothing from the repub lican party.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 16.— The hope is expressed that congress at the comina session may look into the question oil increasing tho pay of the enlisted men of the army, and particularly of tho noncommissioned officers of the hne.^ The military authorities have often. urged this matter, and in the current' report of Adjutant General Riiggles ho strongly advises an increase, with a proper readjustment. He recommends that tho privates of tho lino should hereafter receive 815 per month instead of $13 on. enlistment, as now. The pay of corporals he would fix at 825, whereas in the lino they now only receive $15 a month during tho first two years. To sergeants who now receive $18 a month for the first two years ho would give 835. To first sergeants iinil sergeant majors, the former of whom receive in the line §25 a mouth for the first two years, and the latter 823, he would give §50 a month. To tho band Wusicians he would give S25, whereas (the ordinary nmsician now receives $13.' ,' These are increases so great that it, .is not at all probable that ti»ey will find favor with congress; but perhaps setting the new standard so high may be more likely to secure consideration for a compromise. One point which may receive attention is tlie'necessitv of closer equalization of pay in proportion to rank and duties. And, 0s General, Ruggles points out, under the system of extra duty pay, and the exclusion of the corporal from it, jthe latter's total pay in a mouth Imay bo less than that of a private under his command. Tho amount of increase in the annual appropriation , required under General Haggles' ' sys- put at $800,000.

ND, O., Nov. 10.—The spa- iious auditorium ot Mnstc hall was Jllcd with delegates on the opening 1 of ,he twenty-first annual convention ot the National Woman's Christian Temperance union.

LONDON, Nov. 10.—The report of Sir Courtney Boyle Who was designated by he government board of trade to in- 'estigate the hours of labor of railroad imployes has been made public and iontains some sensational statements. )u several lines he hits found that the Engineers and firemen are. of ten compiled to work from eighteen to twenty- bur hours at a stretch. One case investigated was ' that of a -signal nan at an important junction where many trains crossed and recrossed and who was on duty for weuty-five and a half consecutive lours. The most flagrant case investigated was that of an engineer who was cept at '.work without a rest for thirty-'our consecutive hours. On d number of lines the average hours of .the brake-, nen, baggagemen and other employes •anged from sixteen to twenty-two. It s believed that .this report will result n the passage of an act of parliament )lacing a limit on the number of hours that employes of railroads may be kept :ontinuouslv at work. TOO MUCH FOR HALL. jborne in mind that congress has re- |cently done something in this direction. The act of February 27, 1803, increased the pay of first sergeants from $33 to $25, and that of sergeants from 817 to $18. But tho sergeant major was overlooked. He now gets as has been said, $33. General Williams pointed out that this disurepency ought not to be. It is admitted that in recent ye'ars! the duties of noncommissioned officers have been increased, particularly by the new drill regulations and the open order formations for battle. More depends upon the sergeant and the corporal than in former years, and it become^ more necessary to secure a high degree of qualification and a/bility. The last year Colonel P. T. Swaine, Twenty-second infantry, and Colonel C. II. Carlton, Eighth cavalry, pointed out the need -of increasing the pay of sergeant majors, tho latter observing that both they and the regimental quartermaster sergeants aro selected from tho first sergeants as a promotion. Colonel G, S._ Poland, Seventeenth infantry, thought that the pay of regimental sergeant majors and quartermaster sergeants should bo increased to at least $00 per month. They do more work per day than many general service clerks in th'e employ of the government whoget$100 per month. The pay of each grade of noncommissioned officers should be increased also. ' Mujor Keyes considers that'the pay >of 4u-BtiMsergeants,, should be $40 per month, with incroase for service, and that of sergeants in proportion. Colonel Lapgdon, then commanding the First artillery, proposed $50 per month for sevfreant innjors and regimental quarter- muster sergeants, and pointed out that- the increase of tho cost would be slight, there being 1 but forty of each grade. Besides, they must show high character for appointment, The sergeant (major has long hours, and needs to look out for a great deal of clerioa.1 work for which,the adjutant is responsible to the colonel, and he has'the daily guard mounting and the battalion parades, inspection and drills, Porjiaps* the ^present anpinaly in respect to (he pay of these two regimen" staff officers can be, at least, corit Hurry Baker mid. Billy Woods Stayed the l?our liouudH. CHICAGO, Nov. 10.— Jiin Hall failed' tqnijrht in an endeavor to put out Henry Baker of Milwaukee and Billy- Woods of Denver in four rounds each. 1 Fully 5,000 people assembled at Tatter-sail's last night to see these and other exhibitions. In the HaH-Baker contest, the first round was principally devotee^ by the men to "sizing each other up," although toward tlie close Hall hit Ba-'' ker freely. , s In the second Baker led wildly, ands in return received blows which left him badly winded. In the third Ilall lauded on Baker's face as he pleased, v In the last round Baker started in to' rush hall, but was quickly stopped with a hard right and left. Hall could have seemingly knocked Baker out had lie followed him. However, as Baker was on his feet at the end of the round he was declared the winner. - Hall and Woods appeared after a short rest. Hall scored a knock down in the first, but Woods saved himself by clincing at every opportunity. He repeated these tactics throughout the fight and managed to stay the stipulated four rounds.
