Tho Bco I received many lettors of com

from different parts of the state and was
also personally praised for my action. But
received one letter that was of un

nee: At thn present time The Be is

sent forth a demand for more cur, which.
It acceded to, will expedite tmrvl and ru

both going to Chicago at the same time,"
said Clerk Tremblo of the house yes

suming that I rhould (fcrcr that route,
there would !o a fight If I should refuse
to go with him and In his way. In his
opinion here Is only ono road in tho
party, nnd that Is the road that Is trav
eled by him."
NolKxly knows exactly what the rela
tionship letwi-h Mr. Wilson and Mr.
Bryan will be when the new administra
tion begins; but all the sincere well-wishers
of tho new president nnd of tho dem
ocratic party hopo that there will be at
least ono exception to tho alleged "open
door" policy at tho White house. It
.would save Mr. Wilson from many a bad
quarter of an hour if ho should say to
tho Nebrnskan right now: '"Here's your
hat; what's your hurry?" But there Is
alt sorts of talk hero ns what Mr.
Bryan will do about the cabinet! what
ho will do with tho tariff: whether he
will Insist upon monetary legislation tak
ing precedence, nnd what will be his at
titude as to many other matters of leg
islation and administration. A rather
shrewd observer of air currents said to
day: "Mr. Wilson will offer the appoint
ment of secretary of state to Mr. Bryan,
and Mr. Bryan will say; 'Thank you: but
with whom am I to be associated?' '
That Is to say, If the other cabinet selec
tions mndo by Mr. Wilson should bo sat
isfactory to him -and the subscribers" to
The Commonert as It were, Mr. Bryan
might bo gracious enough to assume tho
premtehshtp. And It he should. It would
bo Interesting to speculate ns to what
would become of Mr. Wilson: for there
Is not the least doubt that this particular
camel, having gotten his head under his
canvas, would not be slothful In Induc
ing the remainder of his body to follow.
And then, what?
Naturally Champ Clark, the speaker as
Is and tho speaker ns Is to be, and Under
wood, tho democratic floor leader In the
house, and Senator Martin, tho demo.
cratlc leader In tho senate, could not bo
expected to go wild about such an ap
pointment to the chief seat In tho demo
cratic Sanhedrln, and there is no reason
to believe that Simmons of North Caro
lina would regard such an event with
any degree of hilarity. There Is a very
pronounced disposition on tho part of
somo of tho least terrified among tho
triumphant democracy to. resent Mr.
Bryan's Interference with tho courso of
legislation or administration affairs at
Washington. Ho has no responsibility
for either, and many men in good and
regular party standing will bo much sur
prised It ho shall bo permitted to take
any part In directing or Influencing tho
affairs of the government. Tho story
was told last night thut Mr. Bryan had
said he .would decline to ,nccept the state
portfolio If It should bo offered to mm;
,that be would bold himself In reserve for
tne spaco oi two years, oy wnicn ume
bo was well conv!r)!fcd Mr. Wilson would
bo involved In so many difficulties that
ho could, step in then and do whatever1
ho pleased with .him, This story lucks

tin ce to a great extent the present over
crowding of tho cars during the rush
hours, and add rmJch to tha comfort of
Buuthuro is another matter concerning
which tho public has not been consulted.
and which Is intimately .related to Its
comfort and health.
During these beautiful days, when the
temperaturo has boon that of early spring,
tho cars have been literal Incubators: and
all efforts on tho part ot the Individual
passenger to let In fresh air have been
futile, because tha windows aro fastened,
and must remain bo, by reason, ot tho for-
pceing nnd benevolent policy of the com
pany In preparing for a hard winter.
The fault does not He with the con
ductora. Thoy aro constantly on tha plat
form In tho fresh air and only venture
past the threshold at times to shout to
the suffocated, suffering passengers to
move to the front of the car In order to
make room tor mora victims. Having
thus nicely packed tho "Incubates," ho
closes the door, to keep them snug and
warm; or, perhaps, to avoid losing one
or .two. After a car has made one or two
such trips It becomes as close and foul as
r Pullman sleeper- after a hard night's
use, but lacks the comfort thereof.
It Is inenecessary to here dwell upon
the clanger to health ot massing together
Individuals In such unsanitary manner.
Suffice It la to say .that many diseases
can be. readily transmitted from an in
fected person using the car to those im
mediately surrounding him or her, and to
subsequent passengers. This-Is especially
true at this time ot the year, and later.
when such diseases ore most prevalent.
The methods of correcting' the existing
