full of Democratic newspapers, the
Tribune remains loyal to Republican
principles; and it certainly presents in
every issue the latest phases of aggres
sive Republicanism and the most ad
vanced thought of the party. It is full
to overflowing with American ideas.
During the past campaign, a great
number of Democrats in all parts of
the country subscribed for the paper,
in order to learn, from an undisputed
source, the best the Republicans had
to say for themselves; and the Repub
licans followed its bold and uncom
promising championship of their ideas
with interest and admiration. "We are
assured that the Tribune has done,
this past year, the largest business in
history. "We call particular attention
to its announcement in another column.

Clay Center Times.
The number of men springing up all
over the country who were schoolmate
of General Harrison leads one to be
lieve that he must have belonged to the
largest class ever known in a school-00m.
It has been found, says the New
York Tribune, that tobacco smoke will
retard the growth of certain bacilli,
and that the smoke of a strong cigar
will entirely kill the germs of cholera
and typhus fever.
It is said that General Harrison is
more puzzled over the question what
to do with the bisons, eagles, jackrab
bits, etc., that ar9 being sent him than
over the duties of his office. Being
, compelled to keep a menagerie
seems to be the modern penalty for

Right you are. The above mentioned
classes did the thinking this year and
the result was 7.9,000 plurality for Har
rison in Kansas and 239 electoral votes
for him in the Nation.
Although the Democratic candidate
for Governor of Connecticut received
more votes than his Republican oppo
nent, he was not elected, not having
received a majority of all the votes cast.
The election is thrown into the Legis
lature, a Republican body, which will
most likely choose the defeated Re
puplican candidate, Bulkeley.
Prof. Blake, the Kansas weather
prophet, in his weather table makes
over 1,700 predictions made according
to law. The weather in Kansas, he
says, will, on the whole, be favorable
to crops and that big crops will be
raised. Not only does he predict big
crops, but big price for the crops, also
that Kansas farms will be in greater
demand for cash sales next year at
this time than at any time in her his--tory.
The returns indicate that Harrison
ran best where the Democrats lied
most. He sweeps the Pacific slope in
response to the Chinese lie. He sweeps
Indiana and New York in response to
the dollar-a-day lie. He sweeps the
North and breaks the South in response
to the whole bunch of calumnies. With
these facts before them Democrats
have an opportunity to learn something,
but one of the essential conditions of
Bourbonism is to learn nothing. Ex.
The United States Supreme court
now contains five Republicans and
three Democrats. Two of the Repub
licans are entitled to retire on full pay.
Justices Bradley and Miller, being
aoove ,u years of age, and Judge
Blatchford will also be entitled to the
same privilege In 1 892. On account of
age these will no doubt retire during
the next four years and their places be
filled by other Republicans. Justice
Field, Democrat, is likewise entitled to
retire, as the other three mentioned
and if he should take it into his head
to do so his place would also be filled
by a Republican. "With the changes
likeiy to take place in make-up of the
. supreme bench in the near future the
Republicans will notj probably gain one
member, but the court as re-constructed
will give the party an indefi
nite lease of control, even if the Demo
crats should by any possibility succeed

The State Constitution.
Just now there is considerable dis
cussion over the present constitution
of the State of Kansas. It is claimed
by some that as the instrument
was adopted long ago in war times,
that it is unfit for the conditions exist
ing in our prosperous commonwealth
today, end that it would be a wise
thing to have the coming Legislature
provide for the adoption of a new con
stitution. OWhile there are undoubtedly many
defects in the present document and
while a revision is manifestly needed,
it is our judgment that the submission
of a new constitution to the vote of the
people would be a very unwise measure.
In the first place tlie submission of a
new constitution has seldom been car
ried on satisfactorily in any of the
States that have tried it. California
was the latest victim and she has not
yet recovered from the bitterness
engendered by the contest.
Kansas wants no factional fights
inside her boundaries. She wants
just now harmony and a unanimous
effort to build up the State financially
To attempt the constitution move
ment would be to resubmit the prohibi
tion amendment to the people. We do
not want that question again handled.
Prohibition in Kansas is a' success.
To be sure liquor is sold here, but tlio
boys of the State are growing up with
out having seen a saloon and they are
going to make better men for it. The
old topers are dying off and the future
manhood of Kansas will be far above
that of the past.
It is urged that there is no danger
in resubmitting the prohibitory ques
tion, that the liquor interest has no
organization and that most of its
leaders have left the State. Very true;
yet in the time necessary to elapse
before the new constitution could be
presented to the people the hydra
headed monster of saloonism would be
back on its old ground prepared to
wage the fiercest war this people has..
ever known. We cannot afford tn
take any chances.
y all means the wisest and
cheapest method, the one which will
commend itself to all thinking men and
lovers of the fair name of Kansas, will
be for the Legislature to appoint a
revision committee which shall formu
late in a series of amendments the
changes desirable in the constitution
and submit them to the people for en
dorsement This will be a far better
action than to plunge the State into a
factional contest over the adoption of
an entirely new constitution.
