It is becoming too evident In be longer disputed that in the iecent presidential contest the populist party re. rived its deathblow. The result was inevitable from the moment when the populists risked their existence in the Ilryanite tii.lmly alliance. Nothing could justify such an ill-sorted copartnership but mi. ess. Defeat meant dost ruction from the first, and now that defeat has oiue overwheUiiin and irreparable, destruction follows fast; and the places that Knew the populi.-t party will presently know it. no more forever. To be convinced that such is the fact it is only necessary to look at tho state of affairs in Kansas and In Nebraska, the home and stronghold of populism, where the party has been in control of local politics, and where its magnates held sway for years with defiant confidence. Theso leaders ran the national campaign on their own platform and while their ticket was a 'fusion" compromise, their issues and electioneering thereupon were rabidly populistic. As a -rSUltin Kansas they have lost everything, even the legislature, which they have believed to be their own private propel ty for more than a decade In Nebiaska. !'.: an' own state, the "fusion" folly has r rebuked that even tin- imlii ieians whose fortunes depended on it Have abandoned the idea that il can ever, bo made use of again. It may be presumed, as a matter of course, that tra os of populistic organization , will be found slowly 'X-piring 4 uoM - 4iW to come a sparks continue to he seen anion?; the dying embers long after the Are has gone out, but that does not alter the fact that the party as a factor in national politics Is dead and should be buried. The old greenback party of a generation ago maintained some faint show of vitality for years after its demise, and the populistic radicals jnay possibly hold meetings and go thru the forms of doing business in out-of-the-way corners of the country for four years to come. Against this possibility, however, Is the quietus that will be given the party by the forthcoming repudiation of Bryan and of all his works, of "fusion" and free silver and anti-Imperialism by the national democracy. The Bry-anite alliance was one never fit to be made, and when it is formally broken, as it is destined to Te In the Immediate future, the populist party will come to an end, and its cuttfng off will be so short that Its friends will hardly find enough left to mourn over.

Senator Kyle says he knows from his own large personal correspondence with ilemoctats andjiopulists thai ihous,, anils of them ' voted for McKinley because they did not want to vote for hauling down the flag and work of the soldier in the field. On the patriotism of the people you can always bank. Men who had been democrats all their lives could not swallow the bitter assaults made on the president, and when election day came they quetly voted the 'republican ticket straight." Thus speaks Senator Kyle, and then pleasantly adds: "I have already been urged by the republicans of the northern part of the state to announce my candidacy, and I see that my friend Mr. Petti-grew is anxious for a rehearing two years from now. I will say this much that, without at this time making any formal announcement of my candidacy for many things may happen in two years, it Is reasonably certain that I will be a canMafe for re-election." ' The senator Is evidently making quite a play with the republicans of the state for re-election. Between feeding them Philippine exploitation and democratic and populist support to the extent of eight or ten thousand Totea, like Father Loucks, Mr. Kyle wants to make It appear that he I a necessity to the republican party.

The Indians insisted, and .justly, that In piving up the Black Hills country they were making a valuable concession and were entitled to a valuable consideration. Said one chief at the Cheyenne River agency: "Wo have not molested any people that went into this country to dig gold. We have sat and watc hed them pass hero to get gold out, and have said notliin-;, but now 1 wish you to provide for us. When I went to Washington 1 went into your money house and I had some young men with me, but none of them took any money out of that house, but when your people come into my country they go into my money house and take money out." As to consideration, the government agree to "provide all necessary aid to assist the said Indians in the work of civilization," to provide schools and instructors in mechanical and agricultural arts, and to supply them with rations, until they were able to support themselves. It was arranged tbat a party of 100 Indians-should be taken to the Indian Territory to spy "out the land," and that upon this report the Indians should make up their minds aa to whether or not they would go to that country.

How Uncle Sam Secured a Valuable Concession from the Sioux Indians. Wonderful have been the changes which have taken place In the Black Hills country Rince the treaty was signed in October, 1876, by which the Sioux Indians ceded that portion of their reservation to the government. The commission appointed by President Grant to secure 'this concession was a notable one, consisting of Col. Geo. W. Manypenny, of Ohio; H. C. Bullla, of Iowa; A. S. Gaylord, solicitor reneral of the Interior department; bishop H. B. Whipple, of Minnesota; Gen. H. H. Sibley, U. S. A.; Col A. G. Boone of Colorado, J. Wi Daniels of Minnesota, and Newton Edmunds.
