Senator Elklna will loam ull about his daughter's Intentions regarding marriage if he reads the dispatches frm Paris und Koine from time to time. Whether Michigan shall gain In her representation In congress because of her 16 per cent Increase in insulation will depend upon the basis of popula tion which may be fixed. At pres ent, with a population of 2.4:'0,J32, the Btate has 12 members, which gives a large fraction of almost lOO.ooo over the number necessary to carry that number of congressmen. If the basis should remain as at present, the frac tion and the gain in population com bined would entitle It to a membership with 14. With an Increase of the basis to 220.000 short of the full number necessary to bring the representation up to 13, but with a major fraction amounting to more than 170.000. there could be little doubt that an Increase of one would be allowed. Are you wasting money y putting live-cent stamps on your letters to Germany and the United Kingdom? A lot of people are. Though the letter postage rate from this country to most of the nations of the world Is still five cents, on letters to Germany, England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales It was re duced home time ago to two vents. Nevertheless, the American consul nt Dunfermline, Scotland, writes to the state department that he Is getting many letters from this country hearing Jive cent stamps, and enclosing flve cents stamps Tor reply. This, the con sul wishes the people to know, Is a clear waste of six cents on every transaction of the sort, ,siincM four cents would have accomplished the de sired result quite a well as ten. Since there is no use spending live cents where two will do as well, thnso who write letters to Germany and the Unit ed Kingdom would do well to take note of the change In postage, and drop the extra thro cents they don't nfd into Willie's cavlngH bank. It ,was high time for the discovery t.f I?ritish eples in Germany. As yet the evidence to Justify the theory of Home German newspapers that I?rlt ish espionage In their empire, is sys tematic is somewhat tenuous. Hut two English travelers taking snapshot photographs In the neighborhood of the fortification at I'.orkum and Em den have been arrest d and their films confiscated Leforo development. Tho English have discovered Gorman spies ill over their territory. There have been times when u hard-working German barber In London has found life scarcely worth living because of the suspidon resting upon him.

The men arrested as spies In Ger many have been peaceable tourists unaware of the restriction on, the use of the camera mar fortified places. If they could havo proved themselves Americans they surely would have es caped arrest. An American tourist without a snapshot camera and the disposition to use It everywhere, In spite of local restrictions, la a rarity. Even If the two alleged spies were purposely disobeying1 the German law when they took their photographs, the Incident does not prove that the M. W. YOUNGS, Editor.

The real spy business is not conducted in that manner. Morever, if these persona wore com petent and accredited spits, they would have no difficulty in plausibly explaining their conduct. They act as if they were angry because they were arrested. Spies do nt got angry The New York Globe says that the issue In New Y'ork is whether "liar nes, Aldrlch and the other surviving feudatories of the Piatt era shall con trol the Republican organization."

Tl was revealed in tn insurance lnves- tigation that the party boss, collecting his funds by a process approximat ing to blackmail, selected the mem bers of the legislature and held them as servants to himself and his ma; chine. Last winter, when Jotham P. ,llds, for years a member of the Al bany circle, was elected leader of his party In the senate It was noticed that the system still lived and but waited for the retirement of Govern or Hughes to resume business In the old way. With the promotion of Gov ernor Hughes to the supremo court bench the open joy of the members of the legislative combine was adver tisement that it was believed that tho time had arrived to throw off the mask. When a coalition was formed between the members of tho Old Guard and the Tammany members of the legislature, with Grady as the leader of the Joint forces, no one could longer doubt that the old hi partisan mac hine, with honest parti sanship in neither branch of it, was rolling on again. It Is for tho Demo cratic rank and file to dispose of their representatives in the partnership.

Tho constitutionality of the primary law enacted by the last Idaho legisla ture has been upheld In a decision recently handed down by tho State Miprcmc court.

When this campaign is over I want to be able to take each of my opponents by the hand a u friend and be conscious thut I havo done noth ing unfair, nor made any character-blackening charges. I want to be able to look every man straight in the eye and not be ashamed of any act or word I have spoken. The interesting thing about this most praiseworthy expression by Amos Musselman, of Grand Rapids, Is its appearance in the Escannlxi Journal, the editor and publisher of which, F. L, Raldwln, has been sued for criminal libel by Mr. Osborn for publication of as vicious a lot of slanderous charges as was ever launched against a candidate for pub lic office. Mr. Raid win's Journal is one of the most emphatic Musselman organs In tho state, and is generally regarded as speaking directly for Mr. Mussel man, as its publisher In one of his leading lieutenants. usance of these facts, and because someone who has considerable money to blow must be paying for the large editions of the Journal, containing the slanderous charges, which aro being circulated in the upper peninsula, Mr. Mussel man has been served with notieo that unless he. disavows responsibility for, und approval of Italdwln's charges, and their circulation In his paper, Mr. Osbnrn will bring suit against him for heavy damages.

Representative Mann Is fifty-four years old and a native of Illinois. He was educated at the Uni versity of Illinois und began his pub lic career as a Chicago alderman. He has been a member lof Congress since 1897 nnd is ranked as a "standpat" member.-..-. - j. ! Mr. Musselman. Ho has been regard ed as a gentleman of honor and right conduct, who would hesitate to au thorize character-assassination as part of his political propaganda. It Is the very thing he.. declares against In tho paragraph quoted , ubove, yet character-assassination in the very essence of , tho Escanaba Journal's slander. Unless Mr. Musselman repudiates Mr. Italdwln's effort at scandal mon gerlng he will at once appear to the public as the Mr. Pecksniff of the campaign, a gentleman who professes the highest and most moral motives and conduct and who still does not hesitate to authorize the most repre hensible and censurable of tactics to tcrvc his ends. There have been many regrettable occurrences during the campaign. Many things have been said that might have been left unsaid, many things done that night better have been left undone, but the most dis creditable, unfair and demoralizing episode has been the Escanaba Journ al's attack on Mr. Osborn, In the dis credit of which Mr. Raldwln and -Mr. Musselman now appear to nhare equally. Mining JouroaL The Detroit Times says: Chase S. Osborn. candidate for the Republican nomination for governor or Michigan, arrived In the Hotel Pontchartraln, Friday night, coming from Monroe, where he delivered a speech before a large and enthusias tic gathering, and remained in De troit until noon, Saturday, when he left for Grand Rapids.

In that time he has made over 700 speeches, traveled over 12,000 miles and talked to, 400,000 people. He feels reasonably certain that his work has not been In vain, and that lie will be the next govaf,nor of the state. "I should Just like to say," said Mr. osborn, "that my campaign has been educational, satisfying and enjoyable. I have traveled over the' entire state, with the exception of the upper pen insula, since 1 started out last May. I directed all my attention to tho lower peninsula for the reason that I have lived for 25 years In the upper part of the state and feel that I havo the confidence of the people up there. Consequently, I resolved to put In all my time nnd energy In the lower dis trict. It has been, as I said, a cam paign of enjoyment for me, for I havo found more genuine pleasure in the advocacy of ood citizenship nd good o'enmont than In more selfishly ad vocating my own candidacy. Wher ever I havo been it has been my aim to leave with the people a sentiment for wholesome and progressive gov ernment. At every place my audience has been large, attentivo and enthus iastic.
