Journal The election of Tuesday last should in many ways and will in many ways impress themselves upon the minds thinking Democrats In the long run fusion politics nothing worse is likely to be disappointing politics It is tolerably certain that after every fusion somebody is going to be fooled The Democratic fusion in Nebraska failed But the Republican fusion in New York succeeded Tammany goes down to a de feat which Richard Croker had surely and twice over earned for it Low Company sit in the Rocker But it will pot be a year before the Company has gone to fingers and thumbs its dl verse elements quarrelling among themselves over both tbe swagand the various schemes of reform the community at large rather sick of its bargain All Tammany has to do Is to unload Croker get rid of the Deverys whom Croker has foisted upon it and go on its way rejoicing purified and once again a winner Croker lost the Gubernatorial eJec- tion for Augustus Van Wyck in 99 by ousting Joseph Daly from the Democratic list of Jndges Not only was Joseph Daly an eminent and incor diruptiblerespected and loved To turn him down was an abitrary act on Croker s part But it was also a senseless act It first amazed then alarmed the pub lic and in the end it made a difference of twenty thousand votes to the tick et defeating Van Wyck himself an admirable nominee and placing Thec dore Roosevelt on his way to the White the perpetration of the bun gling job Croker talked incessantly he talked like a giddy school girl with her first silk dress his feet in his mouth and his hand in his pocket where it seems to have been the last eight or ten years As the CourierJournal has said be fore in the character of a genteeJ tough Croker was excellent in the character of a vulgar swell he is exe crable That such a man should be longer tolerated by such an institution as Tammany Hill would seem to be conceivable Anywhere except In NewJ York it would be impossible But henceforth even New York will have none of him Tammany will beverr again carry an election with him in tbe lead Whether sitting in quasi regal state In ni3 semiproprietary club on Fifth avenuea veritable mock Duke both in comicality and Insolcnceort whether posing as an English elion Chatto American instincts and Democratic ideals When he deserted Mayor VanII Wyck asa nice little fellow whu does as he is told1 he gave the measure of his own stature as a party leader of his own spirit as a boss and parvenu and having lost both his senses andt his grip be ought to go to be made to go nor to stand on the order of his go oncerThe result in Kentucky anticipated is most significant and amold times come again It is signifi cant because it implies primarily a getting together of Democrats but al so and by and large itgives assurance the young men of the party are coming to the fore taking the places that rightfully belong to them and ug their duty with intelligence and courage From now on let the wor beshock heads to the front It upon the boys in the trenches tha leaders must rely for inspiration an common sense as well as honest anda lard work Looking broadcast over Kentucky and seeing the evidences fJoe what

the old carryall out of the ruts of visionary theorizing and embittered factiouism and to get it going once more upon the wellborn highways of Democracy Uuterrified and Undefiled for this we have la bored first last and all the lime It is to see the old times back again with the hope of one more President before we cry now le t their servant depart in peace And truth to say the prospect fills our

little piece of history familiar to every reading man Two things happened in the life of Frederick Douglass which Book er Washington and negropolist friends ought to take note of One of these happenings was his mar riage to a white woman and the other the contempt of both race- for him on account of that act I was made clear that all his socall ed efforts to elevate the negro race were in fact and truth efforts to secure social equality for himself The negroes lot Douglas fall down after he scorned the women of his own race Booker Washington gets wads of money to establish negro schools but sends his own daughter to a northern white school Washington like Doug las longs for social equality The negroes will attend to his case in due time It is almost certain that Hon Jas B McCreary will succeed Mr Deboe as United States Senator from Kentucky It is said that he will have more strength in the caucus than the combined forces of his opponents We hope this statement is true not that we have any particular objections to the other candidates but that the race may bo soon over The next Leg islature will have much work be fore it and a hitch in the Senato rial fight would be a great hinder ance to business The State is to be redistricted in all branches of Government and perhaps two new Judicial districts created This workmust be done in sixty days the Constitutional
