Allen discussed while visiting the state house. Mr. Allen was for a time the private secretary of Governor Pitkin and at present a resident of Mandan, N. D., where ho located in 1880. This is his first visit to Denver sine then. "Yes things havo changed some," re marked Mr. Allen as he leaned against Governor Thomas' silver plated desk and irazed al the lacturescf former governors on tho walls of thoexecutivo department. "This don't look much liko tho old stato louso where I used to grind out procla mations and iollv tho politicians and of- llco seekers who camo to seo Governor Pitkin. Wo had one littlo room then down in tho building where tho Glenarn hotel is now located. It was on tho second iloor and was reached by a set of steps on tho outside of tho house, old- fashioned stle, you- know. But this placo is a marvel. Who would havo thought that 20 short years would havo wrought such changes? "I was tho first stenographer that Gov ernor Pitkin ever had," continued Mr. Allen. "The way I knew it was that the governor whilo dictating to me used to always look up over his glasses after every few words to seo if I had them down. Ho seemed to bo afraid that he would get ahead of me, and would keep saying, 4Now havo you got that down? YV hen 1 would reply 'Yes, go ahead governor, as fast as you like,' he would look at mo in amaz- ment. Stenography and typewriting wero now things to him. In fact, they were new to half tho people in those days, lor that was alone in '78 and '79. That's a good picture of Pitkin you have on tho wall there. Looks just like him when ho occupied tho gubernatorial chair." Mr. Allen is a taxidermist and is in Colorado .looking up specimens for his shop at Mandan.

A Xfiv York Demurrant Pnprr Take n Shy nt thf Demo-Top C'nnillunte. When the reality of the things that are is placed in contrast with the shal low trappings of misapprehended quo tations from departed statesmen, with which this prose-poem is trigged out, then the pretentious hollowness of the Indianapolis performance is exhibited to view. Why, this unteachable and un conscious actor sustains no more rela tion to the Jefferson, to the Lincoln, to the Clay, to the Webster and to the Franklin from whom he borrows wrested sentences than the strutting and strident subordinates of the stage sustain to the imaginary dukes, the apocyphal kings and the mythical gods whom they would impersonate in prop erty roles and in memorized speech. When acting is oratory, Mr. Bryan will be an orator- When bad acting is. great oratory, he will be a great orator. When staginess is statesmanship, he will be a statesman. When cant and rant and roar and fustian take the place of sober themes, with sober men, and when lime-light and thin thunder outclass the sun in the sky and the elemental forces of the storm, then will populism be democracy, and then will America conduct its affairs through the hands of presidents that should be medically restrained and of law makers that should meet (in asylums for the insane.
