The story that comes froln Fort flen toll regarding the part "Long Hlenry" Thompslon is supposed to have played in the murder of Sheriff George T. Young of Park c(ounty Is not without elements of probabillly. If the secret o\ent to the gravc locked in "Long Henry's" 'breast, it is safe to leave it resting where it now lies. The general pinloion In Park county and elsewhere in the state is that the man who killed Sherlff Young and wounded his deputy on the depot pl)rtform at Springdale on November 9, 1900, will never be brought to justice. Everything a thoroughly .rl'oused community could do to effect the capture of the murderer was done. The :earch of every draw and coulee in the county near' where the crile was committed lasted for weeks after the remains of t he murdered sheriff were laid away. No clues calculated to throw light upon the case have Lo far been found. T'he murder 'bids fair to remain in the llist of happenings of Montana every-day life for which there w\\ill be found neither explanation or punlsh Ient. If "Long Henry" Thompson did the killing, then officers of the law 'have all aJong 'been following a wrong trail. It would be as safo to pick upon any one of a half dozen desperadoes and biring the same charge against himn, and, particularly if he had died mean w."hile, the're would be no 'way of dis proving the allegation. "Long l`A'nry" may h.ave been the man, but further than this conjeatllre cannot go. ELECTION. OF SENATORS [San Fra.lieIco Call.] Since the house of representatives has for the fourth time adopted a resolution in favor of a constitutional amendment providing for the election of United States senators by direct vote of the 1e0o pie It seems reasonable to assume it In tends to stay with the fight until senato rlal opposition falls and victory is won. The senate of course has a seemlngly impregnable position. There can be no constitutional amend ment without its consent, unless, Indeed, the Pennsylvania plan of calling for a constitutional convention by the states should he carried. That, however, is so improbable that virtually the senate can prevent reform so long as It has the firm ness to stand fast. The only question le how long It can remain In face of the increasing strength of the demand for the amendment. With each successive adoption of the resolution of amendment the emphashi of the action of the house has been in creased. At first there was much oppo sition to the measure, but this time It' was adopted by a unanimous vote. Per haps some of those who votld for it did so because they felt sure It would be defeated In the senate, hut none the less the vote attested the growing sentiment among the people in favor of the chang, and It may be that such sentiment will eventually be strong enough to move the senators themselves to yield. During the times when senatorial deadlocks and senatorial election scan dais were prevalent In the country It was said with some show of reason that the popular demand for election of sen aturs by direct vote of the people was due to the natural irritation caused by THE NEW SOUTII.

The original Wellington used to be called the "bron duke," but the Maryland senator of that name assays a heavy percentage of brass. such scandals and did not represent the sober and matured judgment of the peo ple. No such explanation of the senti ment in favor of the amendment at this time can be made. There is no sena torial scandal now before the country, and yet the vote in the house on the issue has been more emphatic than ever before. It appears, then, that the house really represents the firm, fixed opinion of the country on this point, and, that being so, the adoption of the amendment might as well he conceded by the senators with out making a mere Bourbon fight against it. Whatever the people desire in the way of polittcal reform is bound to be ac complished In the long run, and this appears to be one of the reforms upon which the people have made up their minds.

REVIEW FOREIGN COMMERCE [P hiladellh.l Ledger.] 'rThe "lteview of the Foreign Com merce of the Unlited States In 1901." juttt issued by Frederick Emory, chief of the h)ureau of foreign commnerce ot the state department, presents an in teresting array of figures, showing the extent of the American nlvasion of foreign mlarkets, accompanied by inter asting commllllent inl explanation of the detclinc inl our export trade from the pIrevious year. This trade has been checked, a.; to manufactured goods, for reasons which Mr. Emory sets forth, but its volume is still enormous and sufficilent to give our rivals much con The agitation in various European countries for higher tariffs is anme t chiefly at the ULited Sta tes, and this is freluth ntly frankly avowed. During the year the American exports of manufactured goods fell off $46,262, 912. The agricultural exports gained to the extent of $35,591,077, so that there was a decline of $12,565,194 fromn 1900. .·tr. Emory observes that the figures makes it plain that our commercial c(on qiuest of Europe "has ceased for the time being to be of that sweeping char aeter that distinguished it at first as anll ecolonomic phenomenlonl.'' The considerations that will tend to retard the progressive growth of our forelign commerce, as presented by Mr. lnmory, are more aggressive European competition, the use of new processes and of our ownl models of machinery by rivals, and restrictive legislation by foreign countries. As to this latter menace, Mr. Emory thinks it might he abandoned if the United States would, by a more liberal policy, permit the entry of more im portations. The business depression pre vailing in some European countries, impairing their ability to buy from us, Is noted as one of the causes of our di minished volume of sales abroad.

It Is not 'asoy to think of Mr. Whitney ei'h.er as 31d or entirely out of public life at 60. abroad a greater variety of articles and the territory reached is being steadily enlarged. He says: "A striking example of this Is in Aus tria-Hungary, where imports from the United States are increasing rapidly. .That country originated the idea of a European combination against America in trade, and there the hostility of the industrial classes is most pronounced. The United States again heads the list of countries selling to Germany, and is causing the economists of that nation much concern. Indeed, it is i.ainted out, this same concern is felt In Frallnce, Great Britain, :Belgium, Switzerland and the other highly developed manufactur ing countries of Europe. It is shown to Re a fact that we are now supplying IEuropean nations with goods which have for years been distinctive of the coun tries themselves, and which we used to imlport from them." This explains why Austria and G(er mnany are solicitous concerning "The American Peril." In December Dr. Pancmhe, of Halle University, during the tariff debate in the relchstag, made a bitter attack upon the commercial policy of the United States, assailing this coun try as the most dangerous commercial foe Germany has, a foe against which, he said, Germany .must erect deiences. The outburst is typical of many during the tariff discussion in that body. The agricultural and manufacturing Inter ests of Austria have, in their combined organization, urged that the countries of Central Europe "should unite for a com mon defence against 'transatlantic com petition,' " This shaft was directed at the United States. 'How far this spirit enacted into hostile legislation will af fect the export trade of the United States in the future remains to be seen, Mr. Emory discovers a bright out look for the country in the fact that we have just begun to prepare for !nterna tional commercial competition, that the nation is hardly conscious of its competi tive ability and energy, Big Value Brush and Comb Sale Brushes... .Oc .SO , $1.00 Combs...
