There is no kick coining to the
Democrats on recent election results;
they will fill two seats in the United
States Senate now filled by Republi
There is a measure now pending in
the General Assembly of Georgia
which, if enacted into a law, will
abolish divorces in that State and put
Georgia on the- same basis as South
Carolina as to marriage separation.
Friends of General ?In? Wheeler
around Huntsville, Ala., have launch

United States Senate in 1902 to suc

The people of Alabama have ratified

Senator Hanna says that in all his

way.ho can stand his own speeches is
to "peak then right off without caking

The suggestion which came origi
nally from Australia that thero should
he a uniform postage of two cents for
letters to all parts of the world has
been approved by Italy, Switzerland,
Egypt, and some South American
States, while Germany has disapprov
ed. France, - England, Russia and
Austria have united in tha suggestion
that the whole question should be re
ferred to the next postal world's con
gress, to be held at Rome in li>02.
The eleventh census will oost the
United States fourteen million dol
lars, and every census that is taken
causes muoh trouble in that tho bu
reau has to be re-organized each time.
The consequence is that the results
are not always satisfactory, and it
raises the question as to whether or
not it would be better for the govern
ment to organize a permanent census
bureau. It strikes us that such a de
partment would be a distinct advance
over present methods, and that much
more satisfactory results in ooosus
tp.king oould be aohieved through the
medium of this permanent bureau.
Tho Attorney General will repre
sent the State in tho matter of the de
cision of Judge Gary, rendered in
Cherokee, knooking out tho jury laws
of the State. It is cxpeoted that the
appeal from Judge Gary's decision
will bo heard by the Supremo Court
on or about December 4. The Stato
will make an effort to sustain the con
stitutionality of the jury laws. An
early announcement of the decision is
expected, as things are at present in
a very uncertain condition, and if the
opinion of Judge Gary is to he sus
tained it will be necessary for tho
legislature to euro the defects at tho
t m ?-^?
The Republicans havo trotted out a
new scheme to quiet the demand for
tariff revision in their ranks, and in
cidentally to put a few more salaries
in the hands of their friends. It is
for the creation of a tariif commission
to consider the matter and report at
some old time in the future. Mean
while Congress would have an excuse
to do nothing. The experience of the
country with expensive Federal com
missions during the last few years
ought to cause every man to blush
when proposing a new one. But this
one is understood to be entirely pleas
ing to Mr. Roosevelt, as he thiuks it
will help him escape criticism by en
abling him for a time to straddle the
question of tariff revision.
The spread and wide dispersion of
the English language docs not make it
a universal li .iguugc although, if the
commercial and military prowess and
progress of the English-speaking coun
tries should escape for a few decades
any defeat or serious backset, theirs
will finally become as nearly as pos
sible a universal language. To-day it
comes near being the chief of the
world's tongues. The power of
great aggressive race to impose its
language upon others is very great.
The Romans in a thousand years, in
coarse of which they subjected and
dominated all the important countries
of the then known world, imposed
their language upon all those nations,
so thqi Ron-.au or Latin became, to all
intents and purposes, a universal lan.
guage. In the present day, Eoglish
has couio the nearest to universality
of use. Tho conquered or tributary
peoples ull find it necessary to learn
the language of tho conqueror or of
the sovereign power.
