There baa been ho in hi in tbe south wbo has (ouht PreaMent Roosevelt more bitterly on the negro question than the present governor "of this state, .Now, however, when the president showing Doth bv action muH speech thst he has been Inisatlderstooo on tin's momentous Question, and that instead of Being ag.iinst tile south lie is for it, and when those who have been prone to criticise ire now commending him, where do ve find our Governor? When asked t ex press an opinion in St. Louis on Presi dent Roosevelt! latest speech which was really favorable to our section. In answered. "I hive nothing to say." A man quick to condemn should also be qu4ck to cnnmiend. After more than three weeks spent in the co naif ft. ration of the cast of Jttdge Swayne the senate has decided he is not guilty. Judjra Swayne it is I ud Ins not been nervous about the result from the beginning and he doubtless feels BOW that the senate is indebted to him Id having acted as the loulder ofl the track to prevent legislation on other and more emb irassing subjects. Sir Wiltred Laurier Mye lie wouhl not be a citizen ot the T'nited St fttC even to be presirlenl. We uess not, when the Governor General of Canada gets a salary just twice as great as that of our president.
