That is to say suppose in a state the two leading political parties were nearly equal with a slight preponderance of perhaps Democrats Suppose there were 18 congressmen to elect as in Indiana If in each congressional district there were just enough Republicans to miss Meeting their candidate and just enough Democrats to succeed in electing theirs then all the Republicans in the state would stand

majorityrule this philos opher tells us that taxation without rep resentation is the constant system of our country and that the actual lawmakers in congress today meaning those who hold the balance of power represent certainly not more than 25 per cent of the whole body of voters He quotes from Alfred Cridge as follows Our resentative system is similar to one of those rocks which while weighing sev eral tons could be tipped over by a force equivalent to a few is we are politically as an inverted pyramid resting on its apex If we take into consideration congressmens speeches the allusion to tons of weight is still more appropriate How shall we remedy this injustice of taxation without representation In case of congress by electing congressmen at large instead of by districts letting each voter ballot for ail his state is entitled to says Mr McCracken A bill has been actually prepared to present to congress which embodies the main feature of the plan for minority representation It is as follows The members of the house of representatives shall be voted for at large in their respective states Each elector has as many votes as there are representatives to be elected which he may distribute as lie pleases among the candidates giving not more than one vote to any one can didate The votes given to candidates shall count in dividually for the candidates as well as for the tickets to candidates belong The sum of althe votes cast in any state shall be divided by thenumber of seats to which each state is entitled and the quotient to the nearest unit shall bo known as the quota of representation The sums of all the votes cast for the tickets of each party or political body nominating can didates shall be severally divided by the quota of representation and the units of the quo

says it is simply impossible for a horse to go wrong in New Mexico Governor Thornton affirms on the judgment of a sane man that with irri gation his territory willbecome the home of a denser population proportionately than the Mississippi valley The soil will grow every product of the tem perate zone and in the southern portion those of semitropical for instance Since 1850 this territory has been hang ing on file for statehood When in 1846 General Kearny made the conquest of the country now included in New Mexi co Arizona California and Texas he issued a military proclamation to the people in which he declared it to be the wish of the United States to provide as speedily as possible for New Mexico government similar to those in the United States Since then four separat have been made by the New Mexicans to get in In 1876 they mad the merest hairbreadth escape through an accident In 1890 a majority of th voters themselves snowed under the state constitution that had been drafted fo them preparatory to knocking at thi doors of congress It was a slight mat terof politics that made the thing mis carry This time they are united and harmonious on the question however In order to take away any objection tha may be urged against springing tw more silver senators on congress the en THE abling act provides that New Mexico shall not assume state government till March 1895 The chief objection to the admission of this promising territory may perhaps be found in the following sentence used by a correspondent of The GlobeDemo crat in speaking of New Mexico Every county in which the Mexicans predom inate is torn by internal feuds Still if the steady cool headed northern races pour into the territory they will get the upper hand and hold the Mexicans down They are not at all bad fellows when they are thus held down Much of the blood in New Mexico is older and bluer than that of Mayflower Boston There are 30000 descendants of the Spanish blue blood 70000 Americans and 80000 half breeds Words and Nothing More Is science a sacred cult to be written about in a language practically unknown to the ordinarily intelligent man and woman We judge that it is so in the opinion of certain alleged scientific per sons who cannot sufficiently express their contempt for the interesting paper read at meetings of learned men If a a paper clear and plain to be interesting to common people then it is of little value to science say they So much the worse for science then The most illustrious practical scientific investigators and discoverers have come from the ranks of the common people from James Watt to Thomas Edison The men who have done the most for science practically have been mostly men who would understand scarcely a word of the six syllabled lingo in which modern professors clothe their alleged thoughts under the delusion that they are being scientific There never was anything yet so abstruse that itcould not be put into good plain vigorous English if it it was worth putting into any words at all The best proof of this is that the great scientific writers like Huxley Dar winTyndall and Professor Dewar clothe their ideas in words that the popular reader canin every case understand II is onlyyour half way fellows who seek to hide the vagueness and confusion of their mental concepts and Latin words DBS MOINES March In the sen ate the following

WASHINGTON March 13 Special Pollins the senate is now a regularly estab lished industryin Washington thanks to the Wilson bill No matter what else it may do or may have done it has made the polling industry lively and the room of the senatefinance committee the storm center of the capitol While every man has his own polling list the general mass may be reduced to three with slight variations and it is a suggestive fact thatin each of the three thePopulists figure as the proba ble deciding power As there are 41 Demo crats 38 Republicans including Stewart on 3 Populists and 3 vacancies in the senate it is plain that by transferring one or more of thePopulists this way and that a pleasing variety of combinations can be made If the income tax is leftrinthe bill it is considered certain that two or mbreDemo cratswill voteagainst it If it is left out it is beyond question that all the Populists will vote againstit If the sugar tax isleft in it is charged that one Populistwill vote against thebill If all should vote against it two Democrats would sufBceto defeat it in a full senate But if all three should vote for itthen five Democrats would be required to beattfc So far the calculation is mathematicaland easy The Populist Strength In this condition there is naturally a very active effort to enlighten the minds of the three recognized Populists It was at first given out as Senator Al by authority that all the Populists would vote against if the sugar tax was left in o the income tax stricken out As this practically amounted to insuring the defeatof nobody is yet able to figure a smaller loss than two Demo crats in either contingency there was natu rally a good deal ofbuzzing among the Populists of the house and in no Ibng time Mr Allen virtually repudiated the state ment The Populists of the house areof one mind in regard to the duty of their copar tisans in the ridicule the idea that any thine else will influence them exceptthe income tax With that out they say All our men in the senate will vote against the bill With that in they will allvote for it In fact they must be for it They simply cant afford to go against it for the incometax is pur special ty Thati

It is the best thing our paVty has done so far arid our senators would not dare to vote against it They would be called to ac cbuntvery savagely if they should Set it down as a certainty that with the income tax in thethlceePopulistsenators bluff as they mayin the to vote for matter what else is in it or out Of it Certain Contingencies Another it is worth notingthatthey are of the antiPopulist class those who might be called old line that this is the time to draw the line once and for all to cut loose from every Populist heresy and plant the Democracy on unassailable grounds They declare with enthusiasm that if the incometax is left out and the bill supported in the senate in the shape recommended finally by the Democrats of the finance committee they can secure ev eryDemocratic vote in its favor and beat both Republicans and Populists by a hand some majority A third class of calculators accept the first reported statement of Senator Allen as showing his real intention to vote against the bill unless the sugar bounty is main tained They calculate however on get ting the other two Populists in which case they could afford to lose three Democrats whereas they they are absolutely certain of not losing more than two It is also worth noting that each successive cal culation places the passage of the bill at a He Was Newly In the Command of a Demi brleade of Cavalry

by any who have endured the thwartings of ambition under like circumstances For Little spanof time be tween a desk in St Louis and the command of an army with rank of major general was only three years And his cloiyl had its silver lining too for influential persons around headquarters sawthe waste of en ergythat resulted from holding Sheridan back and exerted themselves to secure his appointment to the command of a regiment of cavalry which had received marching or ders to go to the field of fighting He never knew himself just how it happened but it was not through his own direct seeking was a complete surprise as well as a joyful one The regiment was the Second Michigan cavalry fresh from the recruiting barracks and the men shared the elation the new colonel when the trumpeter sounded the Boots and Saddles call nnd they went whirling away to the army lines in front of Corinth Miss to join a column of raiders about to start on a foray into the enemys country Sheridan did not fail to speedily bring his achievements up to the level of his promises ed Chalmers onslaught nd allowed bis men to come within 25 to 30 yards oZ their rifles then opened with a surprisiiig show er of bullets that made the open field where they rode too hot for mortal to endure The riders were scattered by the fire and finally gave up the attack Repeating rifles in hands of cavalrymen fighting on foot were something rarely met at that stage of the war and Chal mers rightly inferred that there could not be much of that sort of opposition to con tend with He determined to flank Camp bells little hornets nest by spreading out his ample forces so as to overlap Sheri dans flanks That move it was beyond the means of Campbell to check and his men began the slow withdrawal Sheridan bad ordered them to make in an emergency The Confederates seized the moment to press the charge again in front but Camp bells men turned upon them desperately and it quickly developed into a hand to hand combat The Michigan men had destroyed their lineby moving backward so that only groups of half a dozen men hero and there retained their touch of elbow These were singled out for attack by groups of Confed erates but the brave Michiganlads when brought to close quarters clubbed their ri fles and resisted step by step In this way the front line was drawn back to that of the lowaus and the two united were so strong that Chalmers gave up his direct at tacks and once more tried to flank Sberi idans little band The wave of Confeder ate troopers that was brought to temporary halt by the sturdy bulwark of Michigan andlowa boys flowed around eachend of the line threatening to engulf the small army Again Sheridans genius came to the res cue In his travels over the country round about the camp he had discovered an ob scure wood road leading from Booneville station off to the left of Chalmers position in a sweeping circuit to his rear He had also picked up a lank tall and tawny Mis sissippi native who knewevery foot of ground as well as one knows his own door yard and retained him asa paid guide Taking the wood road and the guide as elements in anew bold plan he told off two companies of the Second Iowa and two of the Second Michigan numbering 97 sabers in all placed Captain R A Alger of the Second Michigan with the guide for a pilot at their head and sent them trotting gently down the wood road toward the Con federate rear Algers orderswere not to deploy or separate his handful but main tain a solid column and on reaching some suitable point behind Chalmers line

entirelynew tar iff bill Theoretically no says Senator Gibson but practically yes It is too late to raise the question As a matter of fact nearly all tariff bills have really been fram ed in the senate The house does little more than furnish the basis Examine the history ofprevious tariffs and you will find itso and as the power has been exer cised fromthe very start even by men who helped make the constitution it is fixed Assuming that it is theoretically unconsti tutional nevertheless the bill cannot be come a law in any event until it has passed thehouse and when the house in which the measure originated accepts the amend ments of senate it cures the defect This is not the exact language of Senator Gibson but is condensed from his general reasoning on the subject The right of amendment being once granted say other senators it is not practicable to determine the extent of its and as a matter of fact the courts would not enter into the inquiry after the house had voted to

of thats line the people are for more silver and on the northeasfcside forless orcertainly not for any moret and evenbeyond them The raid was a brilliant one The general of Sheridans brigade was promoted and the colonel on whose commission the ink was scarcely dry succeeded to the honors and responsibilities of a brigade commander More than that his force was stationed by itself on an ex posed position 20 miles in advance of the main army Campwas pjtched near Rien zi outposts were established at points of danger and Sheridan set about making ac quaintance with his men reconnoitering the country and getting matters in desira ble shape as he expressed it for himself and the cause he served The Confederates however held another view of the proceedings and set onfoot plans at variance with to cut short his occupation of fact to annihilate him and all his com mand The chief of the conspiracy to dis turb Sheridans well spent leisure was General Jam es R Chalmers With afol lowing of 2000 or 8000 troopers he marched out on the Rienzi road early on the morn ing of July 1 drove the Michigan pickets from their beats and pursued them as far as to the junction of roads just outside of the hamlet of Booneville close to Sheri dans camp At that point there was some protection from standing timber and the handful of pickets prepared to make a bold defense They had seen only the of two Confederate regimentsin the opposing force and reported accordingly to their commander who promptly ordered out four companies of the Second Michigan with Captain Archibald P Campbell at their head The Michigan men dismounted and stealthilymoved forward to feel the ene mys strength and intentions It might be only a cavalry raid or it might be a feint made at that point as a a stronger attack somewhere else It is bad tactics for acommander to throw his main strength against a fractionof the enemy leaving his the enemys main forceiree to spring an attack on some unguarded point meanwhile Many novices fall into that error but Little Phil was not of that kind He sent the right men to the right place and Captain Campbells four companies held at bay two whole regiments of Chalmers troopers that had deployed on both sides of the road for the purpose of riding down the handful of pickets and their meager re serves Seeing that Campbell was in ac tual danger of being brushed away by odds of five to one as it then appeared Sheridan told him to hold on as long as possible and if driven retire slowly fightingat every step This would give the leader time to get the reserves out of camp and also to make readya flying column to act when ever chance offered to baffle the enemy by a counter assault The entire force presentwith Sheridan consisted of the Second Michigan and Sec ond Iowa cavalry numbering together 827 fighting men Two companies of the Sec ond Iowa that carried sabers only Sheridan placed in the village of Booneville to de fend the railway and station his means of communication with the rest of the army One company of lowans was stationed as camp guards and the remaining nine corn charge like a bolt through his ranks toward the Union front again bringing out such of his followers as should survive the daring and dangerous melee It was a forlorn hope indeed but the situation was sodes perate as to warrant the sacrifice of the few to save the many An hour was allowed Captain Alger to complete his circuit Meanwhile Sheridan put in his last reserves his station and camp guards and the fight was sharp and deadly as well as apparently
