An Impression is abroad la the state that there will be a hot time at the Pocatello conventions. THE News I* looking for no such time. The readi ness with which the committees of the reform forces agreed to a union and the general favor with which tbe agree ment has been received refute all rea sons given for the hot time. At any rate, alt troubles and dis agreements may be avoided If the coun lie* will irne proper care in the selection of delegates. The occasion demands Ibe be« men the parties afford. The News appeals to Democrat*, Sliver Republicans and Populists of , Bingham county to be careful at their primaries and conventions in the selee lion of those whom they would have to represent them. Bingham is a great county and with her best men on the I!*ts of delegates her Influence will be a jiowcr for a good state ticket and for a good platform. Nttteaal Ceavsstioat. Gold win Smith, describing In his history of the. Uatted State* the conven tion which framed our Federal consti tution, sa vs that it "sat with closed door#, aa every assembly must if it mean* really to deli Iterate, not to talk to tbe galleries and the reporter*." Once Iu four years, after the great national convention* for the nomina tion of candidates for President and Viee-Presidout, many persons are of opinion that spectators ought to be excluded from these assemblages. It ts not proposed to exclude tbe report ers, which would be done were the doors strictly closed, in the sense refer red to by Professor Smith, but to limit the convention to the delegates and al ternates, the newspaper reporters, and perhaps a tew distinguished guests. The system which permits the pres ence of many thousands of visitors, ap plauding and shouting, permits them also to exert great Influence over the delegates, and renders the convention subject to the control of passing frenzies of emotion. As conventions are now conducted, the spectators, or as they are popularly termed "the galleries," play a not un important part. They Jo the cheering; they raise banner«; under an enthus iastic leader they have been known to start a march through the hall In be half of some candidate whose name Is before the convention. The delegates are naturally influenced by such demon strations; and yet it is far from certain that the galleries typify "the people" outside, for the galleries are often packed In advance with friends of a particular candidate. However desirable more deliberate convenlious, state end national, may be, the proposed change doet not make headway. It would take away "half tbe fun" of a convention, aud would thereby disappoint e great number of people. Hut after all, "the fun" is the last thing to be considered when men are «electing the rulers of the nation.— Youth's Companion. It is reported from Washington that Senator Toro Carter and W. A. Clark have formed a combination to capture the Montana legislature, this fall, and return themselves to the U. S. Senate. Clark Is to capture the Democratic and Carter the Republican counties, and to make the deal a certainty, Hanna's "substantial aid" and Clark's money are to do the work. m |fi ijj I | Billion* Given Away.
