It is all right, of course, and the fact that never before in the known history of politics has a woman presided over the deliberations of a popular legislative assembly will render her candidacy all the more attractive to the people, who, like the Athenians, are ever seeking some new thing; but to conservative observation the idea of a Colorado solon rising in his place and addressing the chair as Miss Speaker or Mrs. Speaker, or Madame Speaker, will seem not a little amusing.

And of BRYAN ON HIS DEFEAT. In an arti le entitled "The Election I 1900," In the December North American Review. Mr. Bryan attempts to give reasons for c's defeat. One is the alleged use of money. As the popular plurality la over 800,000, the largest on record, the so-called "colonization and purchase of votes" must have been conducted on a colossal cale. A majority of 137 electoral votes would look like foolish prodigality in buying. Shifting the point f view, Mr. Bryan remarks that "the --"siana win .J ld Gm n- H course the Tribune does accept the results.

Whatever claims Mr. Gamble has tions from the public view, for the lear of a change is merely a political expression of the conservatism which, to a gTeater or less extent, exists in very perosn." It is certainly true that a majority of the American peo temporary good of the party, when upon the Black Hills, this is not one disaster is inevitable in .ho near fu of them.

The greater part of this vast retary of the central committee has Just keep the record straight, and uncertain chase after something bet-er. Common sense would be a better name than conservatism for this feeling. Every time a practical man ran against the portentous phrase, "Void if Bryan is elected," he realized the attitude that had been taken by men of the coolest business Judgment and that even a grain of doubt can disturb the great currents of national trade. Mr. Bryan denies that the republican party has had anything to do with prosperous conditions. But from the day of the election there was a great upward bound in the markets. The sweeping nature of the defeat was reflected in an unexpected degree f general activity, and the wave is till mounting and spreading. The boom instantly followed a great republican victory, and it is.valn to dispute its cause. It was not due to good crops or the Increased production of gold, but to the assurance of continued republican control of all departments of the government, and a most emphatic reassertion of. the principle that an American dollar must be the equivalent of 100 cents everywhere throughout the world. Mr. Bryan insists that the election of 1900 was not decisive on the money question.

And on December 13th, It croaked: "lead's prominent citizens and politicians are daily receiving letters from the eastern part of the state charging our people here with conspiring to defeat Mr. Gamble. It Is charged that Kirk Phillips, who has secured quarters at Pierre during the term of the legislature, is promising to deliver the Hills delegation against Mr. Gamble, and that a combination is entered Into by the old bosses to defeat the will of the party in the state and again get control of the patronage. The Tribune has no fear that such a plan will succeed. But it takes this occasion to again warn our neighbors that the double-headed combination Is sure to prove disastrous. Already the people of Lead, although they are not afflicted very seriously with the official itch or the public building craze, promise to take a hand in both unless the rights of the people and their ver-ilct at the polls are more respected by the Deadwood politicians." Well, if it be a crime to hold or express a preference for senator, then possibly Mr. Phillips is guilty, but he is not guilty of promising to deliver st in regard to this! lgarettes in any form.

The resolution in relation to th.e ease of ex-Cadet Booz which has been presented in the house of representatives by Mr. Drlggs, of New York, ahould be promptly reported from the committee on military affairs, and receive the affirmative action of the house. The circumstances attending the brief residence of this unfortunate young wan at the military academy, and his untimely death, were of the most painful character, whatever may be ultimately revealed as the full truth truth concerning both points. His case has attracted widespread attention, and it Is of the highest importance that there should be a thorough and rigid investigation In order that all the rumors and allegations concerning his treatment at the Academy, and the cause of his death may be set at rest. .The present commandant at West Point has made a determined and fairly successful effort to break up the practice of hazing, at least in its most objectionable forms; but young Booz's attendance at the academy preceded Colonel Mills' assignment to the command, and the actual facts in regard to the treatment to which he was subjected can only be revealed by such an Inquiry as Mr. Drigga pro difficulty as seems to be the case then the subjugation of the islands Is a task far from being hopeless, but ought, on the contrary, to be accom of congress, became :ion in the Fifty solemnly promises not to argue, not to question, not to protest at anything; lake up the bill I plished with reasonable promptness e agrees to attend prayer meetings not propose to do In tho week and church twice on Sun- and at no great expense.
