The Buffalo Commercial, printed at Cleveland's old home, says that he h.is "nterfered unwarraBtably in local elections three times this fall; in Maryland, in New York, and in Massachusetts- in each case In behalf of epoilsmen and against the reformeis."

In New York the Henry Goorde vote was probably one-half larger thau that of the I'rohibition party. Iii Ohlo there was not very much dillerence, but the Union Labor ticket beat that of the l'rohibitionlsts. In Pennsylvania, on the other hand, the latter jiolled more than twice as many votes as the labor ticket. H is yet an open question which is Uip fuurtli party In the United States. The prohlbition party does not believe la prttctical prohibition. It iights :my attempt at closing in tipon the liquor traflic and by degrees educating the people up to a nobltr and soberer standard.
