Cleveland is elected president l>y lhe yoto ot Uia following stntes. added to the solid south: New York. Now Jersey, Connecticut. Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and probably Ohio. In most of theso states the majorities axe small, but large enough to settle tin's election. Congress will remain democratic but by a somewhat reduced majority. It is to bo hoped that the senato will also be democratic after March 4th, that they may, for the first time since the war. be placed where they must do something and be responsible for it- Iowa is republican by at le .i >t 20.000 plurality and every congrcssioui.1 district but the second is republican, ten republicans and one democrat! Iowa washes her hinds of the great surrender. Allamakee county sustains the record of the state by cutting down the plurality to almost nothing: Cleveland's plurality 130 Kutler's majority ISi Hart's •• 417 Collins' •• 1S4 Purdy's 237 Coppersmith's 7 Now that the tight is over and the victory won for the democrats is there a man in that party who believes that there will be any attempt on the pan ofjlhe party to carry out a single [.ledge of the platform upon which the victory was gained, if we e.vecpt the attitude of the platform as to the election law 3 A tariff for revenue only was tho issue upon which the battle was really fought. Will it attempt to repeal the SlcKinley law as a whole, or to greatly modify it?^We venture the prophecy thai they will not do it, neither will they repeal the penalty on state bank issues. And if they do neither of those things in what light are they placed beforu the country? But the next campaign is not yet opened. "Suflicieut unto the day is the evil thereof." Henceforth the party has got to make a record and we give it strictly in charge that they have a rough and rugged road to travel to maintain the ground gained last Tuesday. So long as they could do nothing and charge the neglect to a republican president or senate they were secure. Now thin- must act or die, and to act indiscreetly is to die. MET AND VANQUISHED. WE did not attend Mr. Butler's meeting ou Monday evening. We had. hoard his speech ai.d made our comments, and no rentier what he said hero thero would be no chance to reply. The election is over and we want no bitterness to linger hereafter. Whatever he may have said about the REVIEW and its course we care not. It has all through treated him with more fairness than any other republican paper in the district, having avoided all personalities, even when wo were sure that truth would wurraut them. We simply opposed Mr. But'er's politics, not the man, as wo did all the other candidates, and now that it is all oyer we have no personal animosities to eliminate. THE 4TH DISTRICT REDEEMED. Amid the gloom that settled down on the republican party, on Tuesday evening like a pall of rtj^pjght darkness, thore is one rift in'the cloud, and that is the election of Thomas UpdegrafT to congress, vice Walt Butlor. For this nil republicans are devoutly thankful, although it docs not changeflho democratic majority in congress. One Weller and one Butler nve enough for any district to stand- Now we shall be represented by a congressman of which nil parties can feel proud. Mr. Butler will ot course not be out of n job, as some fat appointment will await him on his retirement from congress. IT has again ueon demonstrated that misfortunes never come singly. ' Tho sickness and death of tho president's wife entirely removed him from all directiou of the campaigu or participation in it in any sense. It is not probable that even his strong personality and brilliant management of the campaign, had he been free to act, would havo changed tho result, but it would have had a considerable tendency in that direction. As it is the double blow, coming withiu a few days of each other, is more tliaB any ordinary man could stand. We deeply sympathize with him, but he, like a'.l of us, is huuinu, and death and disappointment are tho common heritage of all. PERHAPS the sickest and most disgusted set of men who over were set down iu the '-pocket city" were the democrats that lauded there on the ^occasion of the advertised meeting ivhiuh was to have beeu addressed by Gov. Boies, but was not. We are informed that, the governor had no appointment nod no intention of speaking In McGregor, and that it was simply an "lutvoribipg dodge" to get out a crowd to hear Mr. Butler- It wo had keen Otw of the- domotiraU thus foobtd we should have felt' very uwub like marking pronto Um square preecd- Again, In the mutations of polities, the republican party has met a Waterloo, and has gone down in a greater disaster than it has ever before known. What has occasioned so great a landslide no man can tell. It has been known for weeks that the election would be very close for the republicans, and all have conceded that to be sure of the election of Harrison New York must be carried. But nobody .supposed that Illinois would go for Cleveland or thnt Nebraska would choose Weaver electors, or even that Connecticut would be democratic. And no democratic estimates put Now York out of the doubtful list. At this writing there is not cno.igh light on the subject to give any impressions as to majorities iu states or as to the complexion ef congress. It is safe to say that aftel the 4th of March next both houses of congress as well as the presidency will be in democratic hands, for the first time since the republican party first sncceed- j ed to power. So long a* Harrison is defeated we are glad that congress goes with him. for now the democratic party must -how its hand and take all responsibility for legislation and the conduct of the government. It is a responsibility that we believe even the best men of the party will shrink from, and if we are not much mistaken we believe that brfore the expiration of four years they will regret that they assumed it at all. What the effect will be ou the business of the country we leave for the future to determine. From our Standpoint it seems that it must be disastrous in the extreme. It seems to us that it must paralyze all business iMereMs by- stopping all new or contemplated industries and largely crippling the old ones. If the platform of the to be dominant party meant anything it meant free trade, and if the party is bound by it the' e is no show for the future success of manufacturing in this country, and not a dollar more will be put into such plants. If there can be any other outcome our limited vision fails to discern it. But the American people have spoken and we cheerfully acquiesce in the decision they have made. If their choice shall prove to be a good one for democrats it cannot be bad for republicans. At all events wo must put up with it for four years. There is one thing mote than ever demonstrated, and that is "politics is mighty uncertain." EVKKV congressional dislrlnt In Iowa redeemed snvu one, Judge Hayes' district. Uncss it isn't lown that our friends on the other side are jubllntlug over. Hurrah for Iowa! Hurrah for Updegrafl! TUB people havo voted against any protection to American Industries whatever, as being unconstitutional and only bad. Now, as one of the people, we demand that tho chango be made to the good old democratic free trade days, without nny flinching. Democrats, redeem your pledges! TO GIVE THANKS. President Harrison Fixes Nov. 24, For Thanksgiving Day. -The president Thanksgiving THE MEANING OF THE RESULT. The following editorial from tho Pioneer Press gives our convictions of the result in better form than we could do it and wo give it in preference to our own views: "Cleveland is undoubtedly elected. The returns from New York reveal au unexpected apathy on the part of republican voters, and ho carries the slate by a round majority. Illinois has goue for him. Connecticut, claimed this year by the republicans, has disappointed their expectations. Kansas, Nebraska and Oregon have gone to the devil. It is uol necessary to go further. These results settle the question without regard to returns from other doubtful states. What ave the causes of this defeat of the republican parly? One does not need to go far to seek them. It has not yet recovered from the popular prejudice against tho MeKinley bill, which two years ago, just after its enactment, rose like a delngo and swept away the republican majority in congress which had enacted it. It is true that iu these two years tho MeKin­ ley bill taken as a whole had demonstrated its beneficial effects to an extent which ought to have overcome the popular hostility which it excited before its real scope and purpose and practical results became known. But two years is too short a time in which to at once work out the practical results of this great measure and to root thorn in tho public miud. If the presidential election could have boon postponed for two years, the beneficial results of tho MeKinley bill as a whole would havo been so firmly established in the convictions of the American people that the republican party would liars been impiegnably lovtitied against tho assaults of tho free traders. As it is. the triumph of the republican party is only postponed for four years. Its policy will triumph in spite of the temporary political success of the opposition. 'lhe election of Cleveland places him and the democratic parly in an embar- rassiug dilemma. The party which supports him is pledged by its platform to repeal the MeKinley" bili and to enact a tariff for revenue only. It will uot do this; because it dare not do it if it could—and could not do it if it dare. But during tho next four years it will havo to face its broken pledges with all that section of the party that woro foolod into believing them sincere. It will make, as usual, a noisy parade of seajiing to revise tho taiifV. If it shall undertako to do so with any thrift' scheme which seeks to snbvort tho protection which the MeKinley bill affords to American industries, the attempt will ouly havo the effect of demonstrating the value and importance of that measure, and will arouse a popular feeling in defenso of that policy which could bci awakened so effectually in no other way. It is easy enough to deal in ge.ueralitiss of denunciation. But a tariff measure is necessarily a matter of specific detail, and the moment the democratic party is forced to abandon its ground of negative criticism and frame an actual tariff policy upon the lines its hinders have been urging; the moment, in other worc's, It begins its threatened assault upon the American industries that have beeu, or nre being built up under tho republican protective policy, that moment will soul its doom with the people of this country. So that is tho dilemma in whiyh the eieciiou of Cleveland places the democratic party. If it does nothing with the tnriint will be damned for its broken pledges, if it does anything with the tariff it must strike at the foundation of tho great industrial enterprises which so largely contribute to the national prosperity, and will be damned still worse tor menacing the oouuiry or inflicting upon it a rcnoth?nnry fn>I» fey of industrial »i'd onrnmeromi disaster. The election of Cleveland in 1802 thus ensures beyond t |uestion tho return to power of the republican party in 1*90, and the permanent triumph of It* Ddlliut-U WASHINGTON *, Nov. 4. • has issued his annual proclamation as follows: "The gifts of God to our people during the past year havo been so abundant and so special that the spirit of devout thanksgiving awaits not a call, but only the appointment of n day when it may have a oommon expression. He has stayed the pestilence at our door, ho has given us more love for the free civil institutions in the creation of which his directing providence was so conspicuous, he has awakened a deeper reverence for law, he has widened our philanthropy jy a call to succor the distress in other lands, he has biessed our sohools and is bringing forward a patriotic, and Uod-feanng generation to execute his great and iiciiev- olenl designs for our country, he has given us great increase- iu material wealth and a wide diffusion of contentment and comfort in the homes of our people, he has given his grace to the sorrowing. Wherefore, F. -Benjamin Harrison. president ef the Lnited States, do call upon all our people to observe, as wo have been won', Thursday, the -4th day of this month of November. :v> a day of thanksgiving to God for his mercies aud of supplication for his continued care and grace." CONCERNING KINDNESS. (Rural Lite] When we refer to our domestic animals the implication is that they are not wild animals. If this be true, then it is reason to believe that the mole domesticated they are the tamer they are. As this must largely depend upon the treatment they receive, and when one studies the difference between domestic animals and wild animals in their fattening qualities, it can readily be seen how much is to be gained by kiud treatment on the part of the far mor. The poultry, the dairy cows, the fatting steers, the swine, all make liberal returns if encouraged by the presence of the gentle and kind owner. It certainly makes n difference whether fowls take wing and cackle and flutter on the approach of 'heir mastor or, on the contraiy, gather about him, expecting some new favor at his hand. It is best, in the arrangement of your buildings, ti have this idea of quiet prominent. By beginning aright with your chicks you will soon havo this contented, happy family about you. The pecuuiary advantage to bo gained by this method is no small item. Il will take less feed to put and keej them in condition than when the opposite method is pursued. A good farm er knows well enough that his hor;>o, cows and young animals are in bettor heart every way, besides giving less trouble, if they have been trained so carefully that they know his voice and his step, and expect n pat from his hand, instead of a blow, whenever he comes into tho neighborhood; whilo the (locks and herds of a cruel man le'irn bad tricks, become unruly and inclined to "break pasture." Fowls half kept, who have to steal from all unguarded places to keep life within them, become demoral'/.cd and contemptible. Mean sly ways; terrified Might from tho pros once of '.ho cruel anil neglectful owners, deftly hiding nests, which yield small harvests of eggs; lank, care-worn visages, unsightly plumage and general vagabondage of appearance—these aro some of tho consequences of criminal neglect in regard to fowls kept villi the vain hope that in some way they may nrove iv source of profit. It pays in dollars aud cents to be kind. X.ako Michigan 's Waterg. Whoro do the waters ot Luke Michigan eome from? Is an old question; and it Is a question as old as Chicago's ar« teelan wells. Whoro do their waters conio from? Col. Foster, an eminent olvll onglnoer, for many years !u charge ot Government Interests on tho lake, was fond of talking on tho first mbjeot, "Every drop of those waters," he was Often hoard to dce.'aro, "came from tho Boiky Mountains." His theory was that they wore bought ho re aubterrnne- oualy, but he never marked out the eourao of tho subterraneous stream. Ho annouucod this as his eonviotion long before — Indeed, ho died bofore— the sinking of arloslu.. veils In Chicago and the oonse^uout discovery of tho now undoubted fact. The phenomenon is, the running out of tl »;.3 lako tlr.ough tho olhors of I ho ouster',)- chain and over Niagara Falls of an Incalculable quantity of wator, and this continually every inlnuto In (ho hour, ovory hour in tho day, every day In tho year, and ovory year in progreeelvo tlino!

Four thousand foot thoy sink to strlko a gravity incline that levels with their Boor under Chicago, t'ndcr that otty and elsewhere on tho west aide of Lako Michigan—this Is the proved theory, thoory as good as proved—tho snow- covcred V.oeky Mountains are constantly Bending their wato-s to supply flowago and evaporation that is ever going forward In tha watory oxpanso there in sight ot n million and a half (almost) of people.
