wants some man to announce for
governor who will reduce the ex-
penses of running the departments
about half a million of money.
That is the trouble with a great
many people besides the Times.
They want the best and ablest
men in the country to sacrifice
their business interests and devote
their time and attention to run-
ning the government for a salary
so beggarly that it would be an
insult to offer it to a country at-
torney for his year's practice.
When men are built that way they
are not safe meu to put in charge
of government affairs. There is
nothing in which the government
could make a greater mistake
than in niggardliness toward its
public servants.—Austin States-
The Statesman is right. The
salary of the governor for instance
is only $4000 a year, when it
should be at least$8000 or $10,000
a year. $-1,000 will not pay the
governor's market bills, liaise
Gentle spring and thirty

A political cold wave has struck
the Hogg administration.
To-day is Sunday. Quit curs-
ing your enemies and go to church.
Hogg says he wants to be elect-
ed governor to vindicate his ad-
ministration. It needs it.
The law factory at Austin is los
ing a gread deal of valuable time
monkeying with "that silver bill."
It is said that the temperature
has fallen several degrees in Aus-

census returns prove that the pop-
ulation of the cities is increasing
much faster that of the rural dis-
tricts, which means a steady ten-
dency in the direction of demo-
cratic gains and republican los-
In order to have a moro relia-
ble basis for the redisricting of
the state than that afforded by
the Pooter census, Governor Hill
instituted a state census to be
taken in February, tabulated in
March, and laid before the legisla-
ture in April. The count has
been completed, and the legisla-
ture will before long pass a reap-
According to the new census,
which is a mere enumeration,
without the taking of names, the
population of the state of New
York is now about 6,400,000,
which is about 500,000 more than
Porter's enumeration gave the
state. And nearly the whole of
this increase is south of the Har-
lem riveri. Considering that Por-
ter's enumeration fell short by
200,000 of the population of New
York city there is evidently no
ground for discrediting the "Hill
census," as it is called.
As to the rural portion of the
state, statistics show that their
population has been decreasing
ever since 18(50. Since 1890 there
lias been a decrease in the pop-
ulation of many counties varying
from less than 1 per cent to 5 per
cent, the loss being confined to
the rural district.
The population of New York
city has increased 280,533, making
the present total 1,798,810, that of
Brooklyn has increased 149,539,
making a total of 988,077. So this

Candidate Shankin Comes Out for Cleveland for
Indianapolis, Ind., Mar- 23.—
A great political sensation was i
caused to night by the meeting of j
the General Shields club of this |
city in the Masonic hall. This]
club is an Irish-American demo-j
cratic organization of the city,
and includes in its membership
practically all of the leaders of the
Irish democrats. The meeting
j was arranged in honor of Hon.
'John G. Shanklin, ex-secretary of
state and leading candidate for
I governor on the democratic ticket.
Mar- i Tlie orator of the evening was Mr.
0f! Shanklin and it was his utterances
j and subsequent demonstrations
i that created the sensation. Af-
j ter thanking the club for the kind
reception Shanklin launched ¡m-j-.. mniMP TJUÍ rm

On the basis of this enumera-
tion a reapportionment will be
made which will revolutionize the
politics of New York' The repub-
licans cling with desperate deter-
mination to the reapportionment
mad^ by them in 1871 , paying no
attention to the census of 1880.
And they might have clung to it
still longer, in dcfiancc oí law,
if they had not been outgeneraled
by Governor Hill.
The new apporionment will mean
a gain to the democrats in the
