The amendment rvcs constitutional
sanction to a method which has been
attained indirectly in many Stall's by
moans of Senatorial primaries whose
results were bludlm; by force of popular
opinion, and in honor if not. in law upon
members of the I'dslature. There Is
1. 1 doubt that popular sentiment sustains
this change, so contniry to tho wishes
of the makers of the Constitution.
Let the tree bo judged by its fruit!
Tho Senate has been losing, not gain

every Senator will bo in a few years,
as many Senator are now, tho chosen

for th very poor man, whose need is to

for tlie very rich man American roads
afford greater speed and perhaps some
special luxuries, for Ihe average traveller
second cla furopenn and first class Ameri
can or 1 cents a mil" read are fairly
comparable. The former affords pr.n llcally
the equivalent of a Pullman stateroom but
not quite so elegant, the springs are not ,0
good and the speed rarely emeeds twenty
five miles an hour.
(In Hi" oilier hand, l.uiopeaii train- are
