Practically all of them antedate the day of the popular primary's birth while a few of them-have been rendered he should not be permitted permanently to occupy a seat in' the Senate, the contention y^t holds that hp sliould first have-. been given the oath in order tliat his State might have the reprcBetitation to which it is entitled, and afterwards . his claims to remain a-Senator considered. That would have been fair play to Smith, for it would have given him a for«m iii which he could have defcii'iied himself .upon an equal footing with those who were attacking hipi. And it would have been fair play to the State; of Illinois which is entitled to two seats in the Senate chain! her.. It i.s. unfortunate-indeed that I under tlie Constitution; there i.s no tribunal to which the u-ase might , he appealed and the question do-' ,. terinJned whether the Senate has a : right to bar at its threshold a man •named in due form by a Stat<> as its anihasHBdor and wlfo presents himself armed with its credenllalfi. Th.' amazing lIiinK i.s that the IJemncrjiXif incnihcrs of the Senate -.with two exceptions, nii-inbcrs of a party traditionally jealous of lh<- VIKIUS of the Stales.. sht>iild havo votPd put up tlU- baj><s,against Smilli wht-n by so doln^ Ihcy es- ' tabllslicd a precedent which migli he quoted against every Senator from a southern State. ;t'nd declared the Federal Senate's preroga- ; the. superior to a State's constltu- llooal right. .' Hine of the many coniplicHtionB jjruwii^ out of the Senate's wrong .way of doing whal may be conced- • rd to b,' the-right thing is the .rai.sing Of the riuestionwhctlier Smith remains a "Senator-elect" or .whether he is now a private citizen. If he had been pi'rmltled tt) •tako the-oath of office ;in(l ihen had Ifeep^ formally voted out of .office this question would not lave arisen.- There co'uld have been no doubt in that case that he was sut 'of office and the office Itself i-a. :cant. But how can a mart he oiiit- ied from aii office ''e never las lield? By what possibl,- .stretch of 'i |s authdrity .can the Senate ;Ie• -Clare that a Senator-elet.*. is noi a f>enator-elect? , And a.-< Itjiig as t Smith-remains Senator-ehicl hi>w . j,an the State of lllin<iis qual fy . iiny ;other nmn as Senali.r-eledi? ;..Jf .Mr. Smith refuses to resign, as it is stated lie will, but cor.'inui'!^ to hold his credentials, with tk e ; inlenllon of presenting them il . each new session of the Sena e durlns the six years foi: w':i<-;i i (; was elected, who can force him to liny oihc-r line of action and whit }}ORiilbility will Illinois have of ol- laiijing the fcprcsenfation in ths 'Senate to which it Is entitled? • ' By violating the precedents of a ;hundre(! years and assuming to ..discipline a man over whom it had riot :m yet obtained jurisdiction;! the Senate certainly has hccoine Involved In some curious eniangle- fiicnts. . , ,lcss fearsome' by the mobilization that by reason of this corruption j^^ p^^^.^^ j,^^ nominating polls. On the disquieting other hatid, however, the popular primary has Intensified soule of the worst evils that politics ever knew. It has; made it far easier for. the demagog to win a party, nomination.' It has made mammoth campaign expenditures alnio^- a matter of course. It has neirly eliminated from' all political ocnDi'deratlon the honest candidate of limited means. It has nominated for governdr or senator •men who could not have extracted a constable's cohimission from n nominating convention oi the old faith "and order. It has proved to be the triumph of r»e;Ilocrltv. whe- t.hci it has profited democracy' or otherwise. , The announcement that Hays B. White, of the Sixth district, will not seek re-election to Congress bill will retire on account of ill health, will be noted with regret by all his friends. However. Air. White is 73 ->ears of age and perhaps it is time he were taking his ease for he has been a very busy man all his life. He .^h^s had an honorable career and the history of Kansas cannot be written without including his name. IN THK DAY'S XEW.S. Claude U.

Paul Jones, of tiie JLyons News, tells the best short|grass story that has come out of Iho West since Tom Mc.N'eal moved East. The tale is of two men. one of whom bouglit a ranch and hired" the other to work for him. giving him a mortgage on the farm to secure l)is wages. At the end of two yealrs the hired man foreclosed the mortgage, took over the farm and hired the former owner to work for him on tlie sanie terms. The same thing happened. ' And so for forty years the ranch has changed hands every two years and licUher of the two tnen, both old noW, has ever drawn a cent in wages. W. GLENDALE (.Mrs. V. W. Heath.) .Ian.
