A Grand Rapids g-entleman, just returned from a business trip in Indiana, reports Lieut. Gov. Nye of that state as saying: "If the election had taken place six weeks ago, the republicans would have had a very substantial victory. So great has been the change, however, under the workings of the new tariff law, that the democrats are sure of success; and, if we had six weeks more of campaign, the republicans would hardly know that they were running." Similar reports from all directions. The community at large is hröuenced, more or less, in political action by the existing condition of business. At present, that condition has reached a point of prosperity and of promise that the results of democratie national legislation are seen and recognized. The immediatc effect is to increase democratie prospects of success. If there were to be six weeks more of the campaign, the Fifth district would elect Gen. Rutherford by an crverwhelming rnajority. As it is, his prospects are improving every day.
