For many years America has been waiting breathlessly for a report on the old world civilizations from some authentic and thoroughly informed source. Mr. Bryan will commit a grave error, and deprive his fellow countrymen of an'in estimable boon if he does not at once start a correspondence school, giving in a few short lessons a complete insight into the political, social, economical and intellectual conditions of the old world. There is a good deal of quiet amuse ment in Des Moines over the obituarv of 15. H. McCutcheon published in tht Register and Leader. It is seldom tha a man is permitted the pleasure of reading his own obituary, but all '-f hie many friends are hopinsr that Mr. McCutcheon may continue to improve, and soon be able to sit up and read the Register and Leader's estimate of his life-work. The damage to the state house was not nearly so great, as at first re ported, and it is possible that $100,000 will cover the expense of repairs. The legislature will not be greatly delayed, not more than two weeks, and the in auguration will take place on Thurs day next as originally planned. "The House has had a sudden spasm employment of women "fn "tTTe"filgfier offices of the House. The limitation does not extend to committee clerk ships however, and there will be the usual number of fair stenographers to lend a touch of the picturesque to the eessson. The Senate seems to have no such qualms of conscience on the wom an question, and really it is difficult to see just why the House has drawn the line where it has. Lieutenant Governor Herriot is tl most sought after man in Des Moines today as the rivalry for committe chairmanship is inteuse. It is under stood that Senator Hogue is to be well provided for. perhaps wsith the chaip manship of the Corporation Commit tee. It way no' be generally known throughout his district,, for the senator 1b a modest man, but E. L. Hogue is to day one of the very strongest men in state senate. He is quiet, determined, forceful and sincere, and even the old er senators flock to him for advice and leadership. We are willing to risk our reputation as a prophet on the statement that Senator Hogue will be come one of the leaders of Iowa poli tics, shall he choose to continue a poli tical career. Among others the Tenth District furnishes two notable senators, warren Garst, of Carroll, whose astuteness long service and quiet strength have placed him in the front rank, and E. K. Winne, the young senator from umboldt, who is one of '.ho staunch est of friends, and most able of organ izers in the district. "13d," as his fr.cnds call nim, speaks with the hesi tancy of a boy—half afraid of himself— but what ho says is worth listening to, and shows a wonderful insight into real conditions. It is no wonder that he is the lol of Humboldtcounty, and of the young republicans of the district.. It is hard to put one's linger on the much talked of "opposition to Judge' Conner" in the tenth district, Conver-! sation with a number of Tenth Dislnri leaders convinces' us of this. Tlu "opposition" is always in the next county, and it is our candid judgin g! that there will be but one naniefpiv sented to the next congressional con yention. aud that Judge Conner will renominated by aculammation.lt is m necessary to enter iuto the details of Judge Conner's strength, but it is safe t0 9aythat the disaffected ones can b. counted on one's lingers. It is our belief that the constitution al amendment providing for biennial elections will pass. It, is opposed, by those who-fe income en'.anced by continued political agitation ar.d by some papers who have an eye to the income derived from candidates and yy-v 1 *W Z?'T '••^hX .55 .IX) 1.00 Bills Payable Monthly, Editorial Department By F, W.

But the ordinary citi zen is beginning to feel that a rest from political strife would be a God send and that every two years is quite often enough for political lines to be drawn. Senator J. J. Crossly—our old school mate, Jim Crossly read his bill to us last night and it contains many good features. Every voter is privileged to announce his political affiliation at the November election and those who do can partici pate in the primaries of their party to be held in June. The primaries of both parties are to bo held on the same day aud of course no man can vote with more than one party. Our chief complaint would be that the law is gdneral and a county like Crawford where a primary has never been held would be compelled to hold them—and also that manipulations might be made whereby, for instance the democratic friends of a republican candidate might purposely vote for a weak candidate on their own ticket, or visa versa. Never theless the abuse of the primary system especially in the large cities is so great that the state should in some way reg ulate them by law. Senator Crossly is very earnest in the support of his measure although willing to admit that it may not be perfect. Mr. Cross ly is serving his second term as Sena tor and is a strong, able and popular member of that body. There is already some talk as to del egates to the national convention and the attitude to be taken by Iowa at the Chicago convention. There is bow evor no tala of anyone but Theodore Roosevelt as the candidate. The state central committee will meet in a week or two and the state convention may be called as early as March. There are two interesting Crawford county boys in Des Moines this winter, Senator C. G. Saunders of Council Bluffs, who has won his way by his ex ceptional strength and ability, and F. W. Beckmau who is at the head of the news service of the Register and Lead er. Mr. Beckman is one of the hard est working, most conscientious news paper men we have ever met. His rise from a cub-reporter on the Council Bluffs Nonpariel to the chiefest posi *ion.of it.i kind in. the Iowa newspaper world would reaa iVKe aromance ft fine (lid not know the hard work by which it had been won. Beckman was a Manilla boy. His first newspaper work was on a college paper at Iowa City and bis first start was when he won the position of Journal Clerk of the House, with the aid of John F. Grote then the member from Crawford. Des Mo'nes has become a city of )'els and cafes. Whereas a few years ag^ one had his choice between tie Savery and the Kirk wood only, there are now the Wellington, the Victoria, the lilliot and a number of other lirst class hostelries with more a-buildiug. The Elliot is a fine new hotel, run by the popular George Christian and it is under his wing that we have found shelter during our brief stay in Des Moines. COLLEGE NOTES.

Will Have All Advantages of Union Without Joining C:.e. Chicago, Jan. 12.—T'le Chicago'pa pers today print a Ri.r.ry to the effect that G,C0U of the ei.uiloycs of the city and of the Unite :it .t^s government located in Chicas'. i.ave hit upon a plan which will lliera all the ad vantages of belonging to a labor union without in fact becoming nembers of such an organization. The story, in effect, is that lo.uoo acres of land have been acquired in the province of Chihuahua, Mex., and are at the pres ent time held under an option. This land is the proposed properly of the corporation which is to be formed. Of this corporation, which is ostensi bly to be a land holding organization, policemen, firemen and postal em ployes are to be the shareholders, and all the deliberations ol' the body are to be held behind closed doors. One of the chief rules is to be that no one member is to hold more_ than ten shares of stock, the par value of which is $1 per share. With the money thus gathered, which may bo increased by assessment when I he directors de cide, legislation is to be influenced. Aldermen, members of the legsilai.ure. congressmen and senators are to be approached and mado io feel the power of the organization', which its promoters .insist can not be touched on account of the 1'aci that there can he no interference with the property rights of a corporal ion or of its rights to secret deliberation. Should the departure prove successful and in vulnerable to hostile edicts which might be issued by the president of the United Slates or the mayor of Chicago, branches of the organization, each owning its own tract and hold ing its own meetings behind closed doors, will be formed and the united action of government employes as well as those of the large cities through out the country will be secured. In this city an organization of policemen was broken up alter- a hard fight and within the last six weeks Mayor Har rison and Chief Musham of the fire department have been compelled to is sue a strong order agninst the forma tion of a labor union by the firemen employed by the city.
