POLITICS NOW BEGIN TO BOIL Politics seems to be on every tongue just now. The llyiw forces are being fast lined up and there is some talk of his running on a labor ticket in case he is turned down at the democratic convention. There is hardly a man in the state who can muster the strength of Byrne among the laborers. He used this strength to good advantage iv the city campaign last fall. Colonel Ridpath talk seems to be gaining considerably m the last couple of days and it is now admitted the colonel will make a hard run for the nomination of governor on the repub lican ticket.

The basis of a compromise between tlie city and the street railway com pany has been agreed upon, which, Wnile Mayor Johnson claims it as v victory, lias sent the railway's stocks soaring np about 10 points in a few hours. The public generally feels like a man who linds that lie has bought a gold brick. The proposed new fare runs all the way from .'! cents to 7 cents. Working men whose homes or shops are in the suburbs will pay most. A boundary is fixed within which .1-ccnt fare is to be"..charged. People living outside that boundary will be forced to pay higher fatfe. Besides every transfer within the 3-ecnt zone costs '2 cents extra. The old fare is straight six tickets for a quarter with universal transfers free. For the "concession" the street railway company is to be grsnted a 20 years' extension of its franchise. There is little possibility that the agreement can be carried into effect. Protests have already become porten tuous.
