THE HOCK ISLAND ARGUS, THURSDAY, AUGUST 8, 1839. THE DAILY ARGUS JOHN W. POTTER. Thursday. Acoobt 8. 1889. Blub Grass Kentucky did herself proud on Monday in recording a demo cratic majority of nearly 40.000, a clear gain of 18.000 ovor two years ago. The only state officer balloted for was that of treasurer. The democrats also made a decided gain in the legislature, electing 114 members against 102 two years ago, and reducing the republican representa tion to 24 . In face of the fact that the republicans made a desperate effort to re duce the democratic majority in the blue grass state, the result la significant. It shows ths the cunso of tariff reform is gaining new adherents every day, and that in spite of federal "pap" and a large corruption fund, the people will not vote to support the protection idea. We ex tend greeting to Henry Wntterson and his Star-eyed goilileas of reform in old "Kaintuck." Haw I'rwtrrllon raterla. Being awke.l, "IIns the character of tariff doctrine unde...
