Washington, D. C, Sept. 28.
Politicians consider the announcement
that the republicans and the gold Demo-
crabs are to work together in several
the Southern States an important one,
although few of them go so lar as to be
lieve that it will result in giving the elec
toral vote oi any ate to the gold Dem
ocrats, but it may help the Republicans.
It is claimed by some of those who have
been instrumental iu arranging this fus
ion, that the gold Democrats of Alabama
tflfSV the ;ntir Ilftunbliran vote
and if tl-ey caa get the votes counted, and
if the silver Democrats and Populists fail
to fuse. It will bo noted that there are
several important "ifs" in that claim, not
to mention that it is ridiculed by the silver
Dtinotrats who say that the number of
gold Democrats in that and ia all the other
Southern States, has been greatly exag
gerated. A gentiemen with snorting

would bet that Palmer and Backner
wouid get a single electoral vote in the
South or anywhere ei?e."
In polities everything depends upon
which side doesja thing. When Mr. Bryan
came to Washington to make a speech,
the Republicans made fun of him. saying
that it was a waste of lime for him to
-peak in the District of Columbia where

and the Po-t Master at Joucsville, in that
State, is i lunged with having suppressed
eampaigu literature mailed from Wash

man who found it out and confronted

If there were any doubt that Mr. Bryan
was personally boss'mg his campaign the
withdrawal of Senator Hill's candidate
for the Governship of New York ought to
remove it. As soon as Mr. Thacher's
letter repudiating the Chicago platform
was made public, Mr. Bryan positively
stated that he should come off the Demo
cratic ticket. Those who believed that
Senator Dill was all powerful with the
Democratic machine in New York said
that Mr, Bryan had made a break; that
Thacher was Hill's man and that Hill
would not allow him to be taken off the
ticket. Mr. Bryan went to New York,
and Thacher has takau himself off the
ticket. Some people think that Hill will
resent this inteift-rencc by coming out for
Palmer and Buckner. The Bryan people
iu Washington say it deesn't matter what
Hill does; that the result in New York is
already practically settled and that Hill
has lost w imtever influence he way have
had outside ol that state.
The Bryan and the McKinley managers
continue to do some still' claiming lor
their respi ctive candidatis, but il thc-y
have no better loundation lor the claims
they make than the letters from individu
als in the several States which the' make
i public, it is a little better than a question
ever, anywhere in the neighborhood of
what the actual vote of that State turns
out to i e. It is altogether probable
that both sides havejmade pobs of every
doubtful State, and have found so many
voters uncommitted that they do not dare
to make public the rtsult' of those polls.
It is known that there are a large number
