Under the above caption, the Den ver Times, which supported the last Democratic etate ticket, bands the Colorado Democracy the following hard jolt: ‘The Sixteenth General Assembly, under the Buchtel administration, cost this state $185,606. In its open ing days it was a laggard and a dull gathering. It was slightly inclined to factionalism, although only slight ly, and most scandalously prone to folly. But Governor Buchtel sent down a special message while the session was still young, calling the attention of the Republican majority to their duty to Colorado and their part}*, and the legislation that follow ed immediately was the sanest we have had in this hectic state for many years. Following Governor Buchtel the vicissitudes of political fortune gave us Governor Shafroth and the Seventeenth General Assem bly, at a cost to the public purse of $138,087, did absolutely nothing. Viewing that result with disfavor Governor Shafroth called his Special Session, and the Special Session, at a cost of $81,468, adopted a mass of freak measures, one whieh, the Initiative and Referendum bill, is now admit ted to be the collossal newspaper “graft" which The Times said it was during its consideration. The present Eighteenth General Assembly has cost to date SBB,OOO, and to date it has done nothing but incur that ex pense. Meanwhile Governor Shaf roth has transmitted no message suggesting expedition; be has neither urged nor condemned a caucus as the only way out of the exisitlng dead lock. He is acting precisely as he acted in bis first term and a second Special Session seems inevitable. And of such, in Colorado at least, is the kingdom of Democracy."

Hank Kuehl is one of the best road overseers that has evej been ap pointed, and his work gives satisfac tion to all. Is the Democratic Party Progreessive? In the sense that a political party is composed of men of like political ideas, I believe that a new political party has been born. Its members are in both of the old parties, and in the absence of the sincere adoption of progressive principles by one or the other of the present parties the organization of a new party as such to solve the problems confronting us will be brought about The Democratic party, if true to its traditional principles, should be the progressive party, adopting in the main the propaganda of the progress ives, much of which is Democratic in Its origin and fairly consistent with that party's platform. I trust that Democracy will recog nize tills obligation, but before this can be done the Democracy must face a serious Internal struggle. That there must also be a new alignment of party membership seems clear. The growth of the coun try, the facility for inter-cominunica tlon, has lessened the opposition to centralization to such a degree that greater federal direction In many ways is recognized as a necessity, and many Democrats, as well as Re publicans, are in favor of It, provided It be surrounded with proper safe guards. The tariff is now recognized as a “local issue" (to borrow General Han cock’s famous phrase), to be adjusted with regard to general economic rather £than individual needs, and f*uch being the case there is little ba |*is of distinction as to principle be illto tto* garHe*. that the future will find u* with a conservative party representing wealth and reaction, and a progress ire party responsive to the needs of the hour, and it may be a consistent ly radical party without interference with legitimate business interests. / The suggestion Is now made that Roosevelt, LaFollete and others will convert the Republican party into a radical party and that when this oc cur* the Democratic party will lie come the conservative party, repre senting the so-called “interests," or privilege-owning classes, who will furnish it with the financial means for viotory at the polls, and the inti mation also follows that as now con stituted these interests regard the Democratic party as the safer party for them, a view largely taken in the last New York state campaign by men identified with important cor porations. There is, however, a large body of Democrats who feel that the party must not allow Itself to be controlled by the intersts and that it must drive the interests away from it, and that it can only do so by adopting and living up to a platform so progressive as to make any alliance between the vested Interests and the holders of privilege within the Democracy im possible. In the internal struggle, however, the Democracy has to purge itself of these Democrats for profit, and whether it Is to be the progressive party must depend upon the result of this contest To succeed in this endeavor we must recognize that the problems suggested by the progressives are not only economic and political but have their basis in matters largely ethical and gravely personal. The cry must not be only for spe cific reforms advocated but tor the elimination of the men who stand for graft and privilege. These men are equally in force in both parties. They work together or separately as the interests may dictate. They are ob structionist* to real reforms, and their influence must be destroyed, otherwise we shall have pretensions and palliatives instead of remedies. The Democratic party for the future most recognize that there cannot be any reform meriting success so long aa they have a vestige of influence in the party.-—From '‘Will There Be a New Party?
