Tbe senatorial contest goes that of Washington even ©no better, aud has so far in its history succeeded in effectual! f blocking the organization of the house. There .re two pretended houses, however—one a temporary organ isation with only seven membors answering at roll call, and the other an organisation of a majority of the house member—thirty-one in number. Tbe senate will not recognize the latter house because it was organized without the two thirds required for a quorum. Thus it stands.

Cline had gone to 42 votes Tuesday when he withdrew and left his supporters free to support whom they pleased, and also advised the legislature to make as speedy a choice as possible instead of frittering away more of the session needlessly. Wednes day a sensation was sprung by Dr. Calhoun who charged certain mem bers of the legislature with a dis position to solicit bribes. The men charged were President Plummer and A. D. Warner, and tlx deal charged would it was intimated be in the interest of Turner and Squire. The price charged was to be $6000 if the eantdate was successful, to gether with a c >:»ti:ig-nt fee of $5- -0(H), and I lie pool was alleged to represent t--ei-ty votes.

Kdi tor Avdocate: Up to the time of the nationalo Populist convention at St Louis, summer, I had always been what is know as a"niiddle of the- road''memher of the people par ty. I stood by that plan of action to the last, being one or the six from Washington's seventeen to make the .')2O who voted for Norton and against Bryan to that end. As ev erybopy now knows; we were heat en by a large majority, 1044 vote ingo r Bryan and a union of the reform forces. I then said to myself: "I believe in the rule of the people, in the rulo of tho majority. This thing has heen decided by a large majority and I am in duty bound to submit. The people decided beyond recall that in the future in this country the reform forces are to act in uni son and he who in future under takes to set up his private opinion on this matter becomes a disorgan ize and an enemy to the reform movement. For in order to suc ceed each man must subordinate his peculiar notions to tho decision of the party, duly, lawfully and properly expressed." Now, we who believe in populism with all our hearts can remain in the party, go with it, beep to the front and endeavor to make the new party a populist party, or we can' kick.'' In this way, by kick ing, w© may possibly defeat all re form, or if unable to do that we may allow the reform forces to sue-, coed on narrow lines and without the incorporation into law of vital and necessury measures of funda mental reform. In either case pop-. ulism i> knocked out. For in the next national convention it is al ready settled beyond peradventure . that all the reform foreesjh chain-. Ipioned Bryan's cause in 1890 will be united in 1900 so completely that no thought of separation will then enter the mind of any mem ber of the former factions. A rea sonahle, sensible man ought not to 1 , . ! require a brick house to fall ou him before he ,: t umbles" Now, Mr. Editor, I have stated | the situation as it is. The national' j convention is tho highest authority ;in a party. Our national conven tion has spoken with authority. ;In future it will speak still more! jstrongl}' in the same direction. I | The cpiestion now is: Shall we i join in tho procession, get in the : • front and lead the march and do j our part as men in directing the forces to go on to victory in 1900, or shall we fall out and begin to ! throw sticks and stones at some of the '*boy&" because they don*t quite 1 keep step to tho music ns yet, hav ing only- begun to drill? I say '"Fall in!" We have taken in a lot of recruits. They have ! put on our uniform—the name of the Peoples party—and it is our duty to make it pleasant for them ! for we need recruits and need moroi than we have now. It is our duty ! to recruit» drill and organize the force; to consolidate it and march jit in the true direction and to ulti- j | mate victory. I. j I hope that our middle-of-the road populist papers will republish this hastily written, but fully con i sidered note. John R. Rogers, Comptroller Eckels has notified the banks of this state that, owing to the result of the recent election! in Washington, they would have to keep a larger reserve on hand. I This is very thoughtful of Mr.Eck els and the people of the state will be grateful to him for this consid eration of their interests, but we are curious to know what instructions he has given the banks in the Me- Kinley states, where all the bank failures are occurring. for Twit Hawx..
