The la:-t iss'e of the Commoner containsi an appeal to the people to manifest their rihts and demand of their United States Senators that they should vote for the coi stitutional amendment providing for the election of United States Senators by the peo-,1 ple. Such an amendment is in conformity with our democratic ideas of government. and there is no reason why the choice of our' United States Senators should not be made directly by the people as our congressmen are. If United States Senators are elected by popular vote those selected for office will be more in accord with the wishes and needs of the people, and there will be little danger' of electing men to the Senate whose official characters are tainted with corruption. We hope that our two scholarly and? distinguished Senators McEnery and Foster: will vote for this amendment which will re-1 dound greatly to the interest of the people. Mr. Bryan offers the following excellent advice upon the matter to the people: A resolution has just passed the house proposing a constitutional amendment pro viding for the election of United States sena tors by popular vote. The sentiment in fa vor of the resolution was so overwhelming that there was no opposition and no roll-call. This is the fourth time that the house of representatives has by a more than two-thirds vote declared itself in favor of this reform, but on three occasions the amendment has been killed in the senate. It must not be killed again. The house is elected by a direct vote; it comes fresh from the people; it represents the almost unanimous desire of the people for an opportunity to vote directly for United States senators. Will the senate dare to stand in the way of this great reform? Are the senators afraid to risk a reelection at the hands of the people themselves? Do they depend upon money or corporate influence to control state legislatures? What excuse can a senator give for opposing this effort to bring the government nearer to the people i If there are two sides to the question, why haven't the senators who have thus far blook ed the progress of the amendment made speeches presenting the objections? The fact is, that the reasons which have actuated the opposition are secret reasons which fear the light. If the resolution proposing an amend ment can be brought to a vote in the Senate it will pass, for even those who prefer the election of senators by legislatures are afraid to either speak or vote against what they know to be a popular demand. Now is the time for action-for concerted action. Let every reader of The Commoner address a postal card to EACH OF THE SENATORS FROM HIS STATE and urge immediate ac tion upon this resolution. Ask your senators to answer with a promise of support or with a reason for their opposition. If all the weekly papers throughout the country, and the daily papers that favor this reform, will make a like request of their read ers, the senators will be so overwhelmed with cards, letters and petitions that they cannot withstand the pressure. The hour is ripe for action; the question is one of great impor tance; your influence will have its weight. Do not delay? let your wishes be known. Send postal cards; send letters; send peti tions; hold public meetings and forward re solutions. Act, and act at once. THE SCHIJEY CASE. The last chapter in the Schley case i written. The court of last resort, the Presi dent, has spoken. He refuses to reopen the cxae and set aside the finding of the court ol Inquiry. He speaks well of Schley's courage but gives him no credit for the victory al Santiago above thie other officers and declarei it a captain's fight. There the matter rests It will remain sealed unless congress, or the people, will open the matter again. There is no doubt that twothirds of the American people are with Schley and believe a grave injustice has been done to him. They know that the administration is againsi him; from President down to the lowest na. val officer they are for the pets of the "pow. ers that be" and Schley is not one of them. It is a shame that such a shamueful condition of affairs exist, but that it does exist every one can see. President Roosevelt speaks o0 the propriety of keeping an elevated standard for the navy and by his own acts he doee more to lower it than any man in the United 8tatas. The people will take note of all the in. justi(ce done to the immortal hero of Santiago, and at the polls will declare themselvws for him by voting for men who will see that jus tice will be done him. The day of re.koning will 'c:ule, AWAY WITH THE PISTOL Almost every mail that comes brings us 'the record of some homicide in which the pistol figures as the instrument of death. We have laws against carrying concealed weapons: we have laws pre"¢ribing punish me:its for murder and manslam-,htr. but they are alionet a dead letter. Occasionally some one is tried and convicted and fined a trifling sum for carrying a concealed weapon. Sometimes a negro or a tramp without friends, is convicted of murder. very rarely one wh. passes as a gentleman. is punished for man slaughter when he has been guilty of some foul as.sasiuation, but instances of the kind are so uncommon that violators of the law have but little fear of punishment. Homes are daily desolated by the pistol carlier, graveyards are constantly receiving fresh ad, 'ditions from his hand and the murderer is icrowned as a hero by a lenient or ignorant 'jury. Pistols are manufactured and carried isolely for the purpose of taking human life. There is no other purpose under the sun for which they are used. Is it not absurd to enact laws against homicide and permit the sale of weapons which are manufactured and sold solely to enable the lawless to violate Ithose laws? It may be argued that it is I sometims necessary to carry a pistol or knife r for pfersoLal protection. For protection against what ? Against the assault of some other person who is supposed to carry them t in order to take life. The argument contains its own refutation. We hope to see the press of our State take this matter up as a needed reform and discuss it thoroughly. We hope to see such an awakening that our Legisla ture at its next meeting will not only prohi hit the sale of pistols. bowie knives, etc., within the borders of the State, but will tax them so heavily that it will be onerous to s purchase them elsewhere. It is far better to e prevent homicide than to punish it, and if t the usual instruments for committing the crime are removed we are satisfied that the e criminal record of our State will be greatly improved. e e SOUTH CAROLINA DISGRACED. a On last Saturday one of the most dis graceful scenes ever witnessed by a people was enacted in the United States Senate. It L. seems that Senator Tilman the fire eater, e thug and demagogue accused his colleague t of having been bribed by some of the leaders e of the Republican Party, whereupon Senator McLaurin arose and denounced Tillman's l- accusations as being a deliberate lie, and :e then the two vicious looking senators got d together and a pugilistic encounter followed y in which both received bruises. *e Just think of such outrageous proceed a ings between two United States Senators in S the Senate chamber while that august and c- dignified body was in session, and yet Dr. Sralmagemust have us believe that the con gress of the United States has improved in te character. It may have, but we entertain is serious doubts on the matter. If it has, it h happens to be a fact not appreciable by many. t South Carolina has been most shamefully >r disgraced by her two United States Senators, r- Tillman and McLaurin, and her escutcheon Skept so pure and unsulled by her noble citi ti- zenship of the past, is now polluted and tar - nished. The Times Democrat in commenting up on the matter very properly says: "The Senators from South Carolina de serve to receive the withering condemnation is of all persons who believe that the law of i. civility should rule the conduct of American Legislators. There can be invented no ex· ie planation that will even in the least degree of extenuate the unbecoming behavior of either ge of the offenders, and it is to be hoped that at the American people, irrespective of party affiliations, will visit upon both Mr. Mc es Laurin and Mr. Tillman the smiting rebuke which an indignant and outraged nation le well knows how to administer." he The term of associate justice Joseph A. eBreaux will expire the latter part of nexi n. May. It is not known what action in the matter will be taken by Gov. Heard. w If Judge Breaux is reappointed he will "- upon the expiration of the term of chief Jus ry tioe Nicholls become chief justice as provided of in article 87 of the constitution of 1898. es Judge Nicholls as chief justice of our Su preme court has worn the judicial erminE n- with much ability and wisdom, and his dii ' placement from the present position which hE Ls- enjoys will be displeasing to most louisi y The Kind You Have Always Bought, and which has been a in use for over 30 years, has borne the signature of and has been made under his per soumal supervisoa slace its atheacy.
