senator- hy l'iiular Vote
The election el I'ottnl Suites senator by j
popular vote instead of by the Ieuis'in'tire j
of each state is a reform demanded by
the organizations of farmers and artisans
throughout the country atid by the ma- !
jerity in several states, notably Iowa and
Illinois. In the latter state a foil in the
state election showed the mai irity cf the ;
electors to te in favor of the ref mi '
and the choic of that mnjurity. Gen
Palmer, was subsequently chosen United
Slates senator by a ilemocraticjlecislatun;,
a legislature that was democratic becu-e
it bad been elided on that issue Gen.
Palmer will lead the agitation in confess
this winter for a cnrsii'utional amend
raent providing for the election of L't.itd
States senators by popular yote. The
senate was designed as a check upon
hasty legislation. The old theory was that
this was a government of checks and
balances and that the senate would pro
tect the people from themselves, from the
calamitous results which would otherwise
follow their ilNconsidertd ac:s. This
theory was founded in a distrust
of popular government. It was a
compromise between monarchy and
democracy. Experience has shown it to
be a false and mischievous theory. It has
shown that the people are rieht as a rule
and that tbe si nate stands not for the pub
lic welfare but for private interests to
which and not to the whole people many
of its members are bound. Payne bougtit
bis election in Ohio. It was cheaper to
buy it from tbe legislature than from the
people. Johnson, of Dakota, who now
leads the agitation for this reform in the
bouse, though tbe republican caacus
nominee for United States senator, was
defeated because he would not pledge
bmself to the corporations.
The senate has not only obstructed re
forms in national affairs but it has cor
rupted and scandalized state legislatures
and has interfered with tte adjustment of
state laws to the demands of the people.
In Iowa, for instance, during the last three
gulernatorial campaigns, tbe republicans
have attempted no ser ous defense of the
prohibitory law but have pleaded with
their party members opposi d to it to fore
go their convictions on this quest. on and
vte for the repulican candidates for tbe
legislature because an United Slates sen
ator was to be elected. Leaving aside
the question of prohibition's merits, tbe
vote on the state ticket has clearly estab
lished that the majority in this state is
against it. And jet the interposition of
the senatorial matter into the contests
for the legislature has seryed to defeat
he popular will.
Again it has often happened 'hat the
president of the United States, though
he may have received the majority of tbe
popular vole as well a majority in tbe
electoral college, has found the senate in
control of the opposite party and bimse'f
therefore powerless. In other words he
has found the minority has interposed
through the senate to defeat tbe will ot
the majority. It mav be conceded tbt
tbe maj rity is not always right and tt
it is quite as likely to be so as tbe min r
ity. The senate, as at present const i'u.
ted, is a denial of tbe fundamental prin
ciple of this government, tbe right of 'tv
majority to rule, and should therefore be
altered or abolished .

EFFECT OF 'HE LEAD ORE DUTY.
It Injur" the ritl Industry of tbe United
btate and Uuilda I'p That or Mexico.
McK inley acceded to the demands of
tho lead miners of Colorado and im
posed duty of l i cents per pound on
the lead contained in the silver lead ores
imported, nearly all of which is import
ed froi J Mexico. The effect of this duty
on the production of lead in tbe leading
states was as follows:
- Prod act ion -
Arizona and California. .

Total Ill.VW 117.500
The production of lea-l in these states

The producers and smelters of lead in
Misson i. Illinois. Kansas and Wisconsin
opposoei the imposition of ;i duty on im
ported lead ores, declaring ti!at it would
injure their business. Th effect of tho
dutv is shown W low:
Product on ?. 40,W
The i et result is therefore a decrease
of 9. 1" '0 tons in the total production of
the le;n iu lead producing states.
IIow this was brought ahout is shown
hy Mr. Kothwvll, of The Ijiirineerin'j;
and Mining Journal, in his annual re
view o:' the lead industry. Say Mr.
Kothwell: "For a short time indeed, to
ward t'leor.d of 1;'. the price of lead
was adanoed ly the McKinley bill, and
the sme'tiii char..r's 'ii dry silver or.-s

Timlin from the injurious e ffects oa
the lead industry here, caused by the
duty, to the effect on the pro luction of
lead in Mexico. Mr. Kothwell says:
"Previous to lVA). only a few unimpor
tant sun Iting works existed in Mexico,
tho prod u t of which was very small,
hut whe 1 tbe American market was
closvd to the Mexican miners, who could
not afford to pay the heavy freight
charges t ) Eurupc on the low grade ores,
nothing v.-as left for them to d hut to
establish a smelting indu-trv of their
own. Tl.o opportanity was promptly
seized, n t only hy them, but also Ly
fome of the larger American smelters,
who found themselves deprived of a por
tion of their supplies; they, too, went
over to Mexico, and started np smelling
works, w'viuh are now partly in opera
tion, and will he entirely so early this
"At present the production of brad bul
lion in Mexico goes on at the rate of
about 1,2'M) tons per month, but very
shortly this will be increased to about
2,500 tons, and may hy the end tf this
year amount to ;?.'KK) tons. If this latter
figure is reached it will mean that Mex
ico will thus produce alxiut one-sixth
as much zs the United States, and there
can be no doubt that most of this bullion
would have be-en produced here had not
the law been altered in a most deplor
ably narrowminded spirit."
If the lead ore duty works nothing hut
injury, as .shown by Mr. Kothwell, why
should it not be repealed?
A Type Foundry Trust,
A dispa'ch from Buffalo to the Wash
ington' Ptfc t announces the formation of
a trust f the type founders of the
United States. Carlton M. Lyman, of
the firm of W. E. Lyman & Sons, type
and electrotype founders, tonight related
the story of a big deal in which an Eug
lish syndite has invested $03,000,000
to $30,000,000. This syndicate has bought
all the type foundrits in the United
States. Tliere are four in New York,
four in Ch cago. one in Buffalo, one in
Cleveland, two each in Sr. Louis. Cin
cinnati, San Francisco, Philadelphia and
Boston and one m Baltimore. A few of
the smaller foundries t lay be moved to
the south ir west, an 1 some of them
may be chsexl. The syndicate made a
propositVjli to the founders about three
months tgoaml they, after considering
the matter, gave an option. Eight ex
perts repr-asenring the syndicate have
lince visit d all the foundries in the
tountry, where they have examined the
machinery and equipments and the
books and accounts.
"When tTill the syndicate take posses
sion!" "Tho thi .ig must be wound up by Jan.
31. Tho option expires th-n. Each
foundry Las furnished a complete inven
tory of machinery anl stoolt to the byn
dicate. as one of the requirements."
"What v ill be the name of the com
pany?" "It will 1 called tho American Tvpe.
Foundry c inpaiiy, and it will be organ
ized in due form after Jan. '."
The impi sed duty on type is .'." per
cent., and practically prohibitive, the im
ports in 1st) being valued at only fS.tilT.
As soon as the organization of th
trust is complete the first move will
probably be an advance in prices.
s ponded Mainwaringquickly. "1 I should
be afraid of you."
Silence seemed a morsel so much sweeter
than speech to the girl's palate that morn
ing that MAinwaring soon became uncom
fortable and went away. After much
ruminating hi. decided to leave the hotel
the next day, return to Calcutta and thence

ro much more gracious than ever that he
lost his bead entirely.
The weeks which followed were full of
blind, unreasoning joy. Not a thought did
they give either to the past or to the future'.
The present was all surlicient.
When fall came, aud the ten fields no
longer trooped with brown skinned folk,
and there was a sharp thill in the hill air,
Mainwaring got a letter from his pnrents.
The intelligence which it conveyed filled
him with dismay.
He was commanded to start for home at
once, so he would be there by Christmas
time, and he was notified that he would be
expected to marry his fiancee immediately
Upon his arnval. lie was threatened with
disinheritance if he ventured to deviate
from this course in the slightest drgnv.
No mention was made in the letter of
cither Ti-Khada or Fritcli, but that the
latter bad told the Mainwaring? every"
thing in his ken about the litilu Nepale.se
it was plainly to be seen.
Mainwaring was furious. The washed
out blonde splendors of Blanche no longer
attracted hint. Ti-Khada was the only wo
man in the world for whom l.e eared. l!ut
he must have money. Ti-Iihada and
poverty was a combination which failed to
ionjur him with lasting spells. If he
could have money in the degree of abund
ance essential to his tastes only by leading
Blanche to the altar, why, to tlm altur
l!'an::!ie should te led.
But he would not give t;a Ti-Iihada!
As tac: fully as he could he told the girl
his position, dilating emphatically upon
the hopeless helplessness poverty would
1 -.lunge them tiotli into. There was but one
thing to !o. l.e assured her; he must
home, marry Blanche, tolerate her for a
few weeks, till he could get his money

Of course he would not go back. The
