THANKS, MATT QUAY. We never felt that Senator Matthew Stanley Quay bad put us or the party or the country under any obligations what ever, except possibly that of being a piominent illustration of what a United States senator should not be. When, however, the Democratic caucus decided that it would keep its lingers oil the sugar bill, and the senator from Pennsyl vania introduced his amendment to the liouse biil patting sugar on the free list, by which he proposed a Hal 40 per cent oi! all sugars, refined and raw, removing the differential of one-eighth of a cent, given as a protection to the truat, and the discriminating one-tenth of l per ceiit aimed iigainsi German sugars, we feel that Mr. Quay has at last done ■osnething which requires us to admit an obligation to him for ourselves, the party and "the country. So hiehly do we appreciate the service he rendered that we will not make an inquiry as to Ins motives. He may have done" it to put the Democrats in a hole, and if he did we are not disposed to quarrel with him for it. The insolence and rapacity ©f the trust lias been so clearly shown thar, if Democratic senators refuse to .fchear it of its power, we are very lad %o have Mr. Quay force them to action. and Mis motives in so doiftf are entirely immaterial. AGAIN, OUK UAUBAtiK. The report of Mr. Parker and his as soriates of volunteers trom th« as sembly of their observations of the oper ation of crematories in several cities ouict m lo supplement the experience practically gained by the city at some COSI of good money in its effort to solve the problem of the disposal of gaibasre iti the day* of Fleisehmann and the Azotine company, of unpleasant mem ory. The action of these gentlemen In making this investigation at their own exptuse is as indicative of their Diiblie SDint as it is of the pressing importance of finding some feasible method of get ting rid of these waste products of so ciety. Ttte difficulty of the problem is enor mously increased by the unthrift of American households. The food that finds its way into the garbage barrel, if properly utilized in the kitchen, if.iUere French neatness and economy pre vailed, would diminish the food bill variously eslimaied at from 10 to 20 per cent. But it is easier to get rid of the wasted food than to teach economy in our kitchens, and the question to be solved is how to get rid of it iv such manner as will serve the public health and economy of public funds. It appears that the crematories in operation reduced the ordinary garbage gatherings to innocuous ashes, but failed to work when night soil or swill was thrown into the furnace. With the disposal of night soil eliminated from the problem by a sewerage system, the factor of the water iv the garbage could be removed by a preliminary seiving. leaving the moist residue to be cremated, but the question would still remain whether the cost was not excessive. Enough has been ascertained by all the experiments so far made to make it clear that the miscellaneous waste of a city cannot be economically or satisfactorily got rid of by any present cremating de vice, and iliat the only course for the city to pursue is that recommended by this report; wait and watch. Undoubtedly the methods used in Edinburgh and Glasgow, where all waste is returned to the land to enrich it, is the best, and in fime, wiien population crowds subsistence more closely here, these products of city lite, now a nuis ance simply to be got rid of, will become valuable fertilizers whose value will re pay the cost of gathering aud transport Oack to the land. But that time is not here now, and meantime the daily ac cumulation of garbage gathers and the question evwr presents itself: How shall we rid ourselves of it? ROME' 9 CHUKCH SCHOOLS. Mer. Satolli's article in the December North American is one that will attract attention drawn to it from two radically different elements among the readers. Tnat the editor of the niaeazine consid ers it one of leading importance is shown by the first place accorded it, and that Mgr. SatoiH regards it in the samu light is shown by the space ha gives it. American readers may or may not agree with the valuation of the editor and the writer; but. agreeing or disagreeing, they will read it from their two distinct points of view. The de vout Catholic will like to learn from it. what the church is doing to educate its youth on conjoined religious and secu lar lines, while the Protestant, either sincerely or only nominally such, will read it to get the point of Mgr. Satolli's view of our own public schools. In this last aspect is the article alone of general interest or value. As the papal ablegate he has beun termed an "American pope." If appeal lies from him to the pope the relations existing would probably render the appeal in effectnal. Ho is undoubtedly the first of a long line of such representatives in this country, lie is practically, as far at least as this country is concerned, the head of the Catholic church. The doctrine of infallibility, in effect, at taches to him and his decisions. It is this that will make non-Catholio read ers look into this account of the church schools In operation in Koine with some thing more than curiosity to find how this vicegerent of the pope regards schools in which religious education is divorced from the secular. Such readers will find no lengthy ex pression of opinion, but they will find some tilings said that, like crevices in a tenc*'.permit the larger and unexpressed opinions to be as plainly seen as if writ ten out. Thus in his narration of the efforts of the Italian government, after the unification of Italy and the absorp tion of Romtj into the kingdom, to es tablish secular schools under the con trol of the nation, Mgr. Satolli states that it was the aim of the government "to make the city the center of a cult ure which, being founded on free thought, should inaugurate the modern paganism." After describing the meth ods to establish the school system and the means used to exclude religious in struction, efforts pushed "with feverish activity," he says: "Indeed, such was the craze that the government finally arrived at the point where they al lowed the girls free access to the high schools ami universities in common with the boys. In short, nothing that a par tisan Kovernnent (such as that of Italy) could do to separate education from the beneficent influence of the church was left undone." But the Catholics "set courageously to work to combat the ne farlows scheme of liberalism, which, for a moment, seemed to think itself the absolute master of the education of the youth." Then follows a lengthy de tailed account of the schools established by the church. From these few remarks it is appar ent that Mgr. Satulli regards any sys tem of education which omits religious instruction a 9 "founded on free thought," and one which ••inaug'iratea the modern paganism." The estab lishment of secular schools is a "craze" which reaches its acme in the common education of fcirla with boys, and that purely secular schools are a part of a "nefarious scheme of liberalism." Such opinions cannot be localized in Italy or Rome; they touch the fundamentals of the school question, and secular educa tion is the stme in its effects, and must be viewed by Mgr. Salolli the same whether in Italy or the United States. If his views put him in hostility to the state schools of Italy simply because re ligion was divorced from the curricu lum, he must hold ai similar attitude to th«j public schools of this country. It is this that compels us to regard this article as a most inauspicious and unwise contribution 10 a situation that has sufficient of intolerance and bigotiy in it now, and which this will serve only to inflit'iie. On the -hand it will stimulate that portion of the Catholic priesthood,a diminishing quantity of late years, which, in this country, hold the same views of secular school i,ar>d wbOM outbreaks have been so fruitful of feed ing the old flames of sectarian hatred. On ihe other hand it will bo seized on by the intolerant* at the other polo or religions belief, who will use it to con firm the opinions they have held and to vindicate the warnings they have ut tered. A year a*o the congress of religions formed the most striking feature of the world's lair, and men of ali and of no idiUrious looked ou aud thought they THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: MONDAY MORNTIW, DECEMBER 10, 1894 saw in it the burst of a new sunrise of lotrtmnee, a dissipation of the gloom »f past intolerancu under a new comniaiul of Otnnipotence: Let there be light. And succeeding it, following s<> soon that it .seemed as if the new sun iiad stirred it into life, there sprung into ex istence a spirit of bigotry that pushed its dark form between the world and the new sunlight and eclipsed it. it is Mgr. iSntolli's fortune to have conirib uted to this darkness in this article. 1 But whatever inuv be the view* of this or of any other dignitary of his or of any church as to the effect of secular education as established in this coun try, that system is too firmly estab lished to be affected in the slightest!by them. Whether lie or they like it! or not, they have got to endure it amd make the best of it. The public schools have no more loyal supporters than are to be found among the Catholic laity.and that not in exceptional and rare cases, but among the major part of them. The tendency of the tunes, the drift of pub lic conviction, is all in this direction, and however much the priests of all churches may lament its effects in de creasing their power among their peo ple, they are impotent to stjp or to im pede it. THK I.KSSi'N OI LESSKI'S. Ferdinand de Lesseps, the man, is dead. lesseps, the genius of construc tion, the man of great enterprise, th« revolutionist of commerce, died before* crushed beneath the ruin of the Panama canal. Broken in pride, tarnished in reputation, wrecked in mind, the body has survived a few years the dttath of the character. For several years his homo has been to him what Helena was to that other great genius of conquest. Napoleon. The aeath of Lesseps comes to teach aeain the oft-taught lesson of the limi- Uiion of human genius and the tempt imrs and dangers that attend it. Pride goeth before a fall, and the loftiest Kenius is never so near its destruction a3 when its self-confidence has grown to that decree that it believes all things are possible to it. Our modem Na poleons of finance, who have ended brilliant careers in disgrace, came to their end because they believed them selves possessed of a geuius for finance which could overcome all difficulties, and to which nothing was impossible. They believed they had the Midas touch which would turn into gold every scheme they touched. The very diffi culties thatksurrounded th« progress in vited their activity, challenged them to the contest. They believed that no sit uation could be so complex that they could not solve it. No scheme was so daring that they could not attempt it. Every community has had these men, and every community has been taught by their failures the lesson of the limi tation of human power and genius, and that there is nothing so dangerous to any man as an unquestioning self-conn* dence. Flushed with the triumph of the completion of the Suez canal, in toxicated with the adulation that followed his success, exhilarated by the revolution in commerce which he had wrought, and whose effect the fanner in the farthest Northwest of this country today is feeling, it is not to be wondered at that Lesseps" confidence in his ability and eagerness to try his powers upon another problem (saw in the narrow isthmus of Panama a greater opportunity for fame than Suez had brought him. The people of France shared his con fidence in himself. He floated his great scheme easily on the sea of finance. Tho purses of th<? rich and the stock ings of the poor alike yielded their trib ute to the enterprise. Belying upon in suflicieut and inaccurate data, he em barked the capital accumulated in the prosecution of the work. When it be came apparent that he had been him self deceived as to the difficulties in the way, and the capital had been exhaust ed to a vain effort to overcome them and more" accurate information made capital chary of further ventures, Les seps, desperate, seeing in failure the loss of reputation and character, as well as of money, resorted to those schemes f corruption in the French assembly which brought total ruin to himself, his scheme, his reputation, and financial ruin to thousands of others. Lesseps, the man and the genius, is dead, but the lesson of his life remains to warn. AT THE THEATERS. Hoyt'« ever popular "A Trip to China town" began its week run at the Metro politan last night before a large house, which thoroughly enjoyed the sparkle and fun of this excellent farce comedy. The play has been seen here before, but never in such form as last night, as there has been a crt at improvement in it since it was seen here last year. The music is especially bright and catchy, and the songs made quite a hit last night. Miss Geraidine McCann as Mrs. Guyer, a widow from Chicago, was very bright, and gave an impersonation of the character which was delightfully enjoyable. Harry Conor as Well and Strong, "with one foot in the grave," wa3 capital, and his clever work was a feature of the play, and his odtl hits were immensely enjoyed by the audience. Miss Margaret McDon ald as Willie Grow was irood, and her dainty dancing was heartily applauded, as was also her line rendition of "My Dear Little Maid in the Moon," one of the latest and clever popular songs. Barry Gilfoil as Noah Heap, the waiter at "Hiclie's," was very clever in his whistling specialties. The entire per formance was extremely clever, and kept the audience constantly in a jolly mood. The bill will continue through out the week. "Fritz in a Madhouse" entertained a large house at the Grand last evening, and heartily welcomed J. K. Emmet, who is so ably following the path hewed out by his father. In his character work he is especially strong, and his light-hearted, fun-loving nature carried his audience with him, heart and soul. His "Bubble Song" iv the last act is a iittle gem that received a mer ited encore. Miss Emily Lytton is irresistibly charming, and her interpretation of her part is very clever. The company is all that could be de sired, and sustains the principals ad mirably. Baby Spencer Sinnott is a cute little tot with a presence tiiat would do ciedit to au old actor. The Dlot of the story is not especially strong, but has many ludicrous situations that are made much of. "Fritz in a Mad house" will be the attraction the bal ance of the week.

It goes without saying that a young man who can command these terms Is worth being heard. PULSE OF THE PUBLIC. The Country Press Finds a Senatorial Fever Is Ra^in*. A CHANGE IN SENTIMENT. A Good Man Wanted to Re place Senator Wash burn. DEMANDS BY THE COUNTRY. Reasons Given to Show Why There Will Be a Con test There is a change in the tone of the country press on the I'nited States sen atorial question. This is brought about, no doubt, by learning the views of the people generally, aud particularly of prominent Republicans. The large majority of the country papers are op posed to the re-election of Senator Washburn and are not slow to Rive ex pression to their views. Below will be found a few of the expressions, clipped from state papers within the last two days. There are many more of the same tenor. The Moorhead indepen dent gives considerable space to au ed itorial on the subject. It reviews the history of legislation! by congress upon the question of opening lands for settle ment, and then proceeds as follows: Representative Baldwin's bill was as soon as 100,000 acres were, examined to be thrown open to settlement. This was balked by Senator Davis, far what rea son it would be of interest to know. The scheme bemtr to delay the land for settlement until all the timber is ex amined, which would not be for years, and in the meantime the timber will have been cut off and tlie settlers, immi grants and people who need the laud will have a lot of stumps to improve and the timber ring the money iv its pocket. That is why the north part of the state demands a senator, and that iv the per son of Ilou. S. <j. (Jomslock. Bio ore Pigmies. If Mr. Washburn is defeated we sin cerely hove it will not be by some pigmy wliim only quaillication is a bar'l of liberal proportions.

John Lind's < liHiK-t- The question of who shall be the next United States senator from Minnesota is being much discussed.

But we'll vote for him if you say so.— Cnisasa County News. A Potent Factor. Hon. E. G. Rogers, of St. Paul, is mentioned as an aggressive candidate for Senator Washburn's place. His friends are urging him strongly, and he bids fair to becmn* a potent factor in the coming senatorial contest.—Litch rield News-Ledger. WanuNiu Pledge*. If Washburn is to be re-elected some pledges should be exhorted from him that hertafter he will represent Minne sota instead of Wall street upo'.: the financial questions. — Martin County Sentinel. Growins Less. There are a few Republican papers in the state still ardent in their support for VV. D. Washburn for United States senator, but their number grows less each week, and by the time the legis lature convenes nearly ail of them will be supporting some one else. — Sauk Center Avalanche. Hard Pulling. I here is a strong undercurrent work ing against the Wasliburn craft that the bosses are pulling hard up river. And as there are several excellent candidates in the field opposing the choice of the bosses, and the legislative body so strongly Republican, the Minnesota branch of bossism has not the cinch so loudly boasted.-Sauk Rapids Sentinel. Not Popular. Speaking of the candidacy of United States Senator Wash burn for re-elec tion, it is true that the rank and Jile of the peoole of Minneapolis do 1101 want him returned to Washington. Mr. \\ ashburn is not popular with the boys, nor is he popular with the people gen erally. It certainly begins to look as though the opposition to him is suffi cient to bury him out of sight.—Mazep pa Tribune. lii the Front A^ain. Among the thousand and one candi dates who have sprung up for Senator Washburn's shoes, it seems more than possible that ex-Senator D. M. Sabiu.of Saltwater, may be again -honored. It would be well. Since William Wnuloiu, Minnesota has never been so ably rep resented at Washington. Senator Sabin has many of the elements of true states manship, and his election would reflect credit on the perspicacity of our legisla tive Solons. — Fairmont News. What Others Say. There are plenty of men just as capa ble or serving Minnesota hi the [Jutted Status seuate as W. D. Washburn. Our senator will probably not vote for him. —Lyon County Reporter. The Washburn managers talk as thoncb they had a sure thine, and yet th«y appear to be not full of conlklHiico by any means. There is good reason for their alarm, too, for there is a vast amount of anti-Washburn sentiment. E. (i.

Mr. Rogers has ths reputation of being a bright man and an eloquent speaker.—Slayton Ga/ette. The people do not take any great in terest, in the election of a United States senator. After bis election a senator ia of mighty little benefit to tho people.— M. James Journal. Amnn? the many names mentioned for United States senator are Washburn, Sabin, McCieaiy, Lloyd and Grant.— Montgomery Messenger. That the opposition to Senator Wash burn is not all talk is becoming very apparent. Many of the legislators-elect and other promitsent Republican poli ticians appear to tavor the selection of a candidate outside the cities.—Apple* ton Press. • Justice ('. W.

PRETTY NEW BOOKS. Truly the list of beautifut holiday publications crows larger every year, so tiiat it has become the tixed habit of those who are in search of Christmas t?ifts to not only visit the great book counters in the stores, but to spend more time there than at any other part of the great places teeming with attract ive holiday displays. This year the array of daiuty and beautiful things that the large publishing houses have sent out is just as large as ever, and soineot the most attractive things that are seen are those with old, familiar titles, resplendent in white and gold bihdini's and other attractive combina tions to make them suitable for tha holi day season, lv an age of books, and books of prices to suit everybody's purse, it is indeed surprising that any one can fail to find an artistic and ac- C2ptable,little remembrance of the holi day season, when toe members of tne poorest community will remember their friends. "Round the Red Lamp" is a collection of professedly realistic and professional stories by Dr. A. Conan Doyle. Against some of these stories the au thor warns the timid or invalid lady reader; and not without reason, as ap pears upon closer inspection. The red lamp is the usual sign of a physician in England; and. for the most part, the stories here gathered together treat of the most gruesome phases ot a physician's practice. In the most disagreeable ones we see traces of Zola, Poe and iiudyard Kip ling. In "The Case of Lady Sannox" the denouement is startling, and displays the hand of a trained novelist— though we think that neither Poe nor Kipling at his worst ever showed such bad taste. Hut, apart from the horrible, there are several clever sketches in the collec tion which relieve the book ot its som ber atmosphere. "A Straggler of '15 is dramatic, and well told from start to finish. The death scene of the old hero of Waterloo is as fine as anything that we remember since Col. Newcome's "Adsum.'' After this, the two pleasaut est stories of the fifteen are entitled "A Physiologist's Wife" and -'The Doctors of lloyland," the former reminding one of Bret liarte, and the latter striking a higner key than most magazine stories. Upon the whole, the red lamp sheds a light too lurid for the parlor table.but may help some misanthrope to a little longer lease of his pet distemper. It may even econcile some immured prisoner to his seclusion from a world where suffering and despair seem to hold high carnival. '•Round the lied Lamp,"' by A. Conan Doyle. D.

A book written with a purpose; not a very pleasant book, but full of many strong passages and noble thoughts. Yet tins last work of Mrs. Caffeyn disap points. The scene is too crowded with conflicting characters; there is no unity, no harmony of plan—only clashing dis cord. To embody her idea 9 of moral reform tho authoress overdraws, vulgarizes.

Richard Malcolm Johnston ha 3 won for himself a name and place in Amer* icmi literature of louay by doing capital work in a held in which be has numer ous competitors, but few rivals -charac- ter sketching of Southern life. Ills negroes are real, his poor whites real, his plantation life and his pickaninnies real. Jin "Little Ike Templin" Col. Johnston has collected some of the latest aud brightest of these stories for tho boys and girls, although it may be said for them that they possess an equal charm for young aud old.

The thread of the story Is not a well twisted cord. The strands are often iinptufect; ill-assorted. But there are redeeming touches here and there, bits of local color that catch the eye of a lover of nature.- He pleases us when he writes of "tnyiiart tiny spears of grass;" "May, bringing those green glimpses to the slopes of the hills;" "the laurel thickets thrtistinic out their lighter tints of emerald below the old. hard, glossy ones or leaves that had bruuted all sorts of winter savageries."

SAM PHILLIPS TALKS. He Believes Washburn Js Not Popular With the Masses. The Wash burn managers have resi ized that they wijl have to resort to the tactics of six years ago, and have, ac cordingly, made arrangements to tap their barrel. They have been skirmish ing around at a lively rate since they were forced to admit that their bluff of "no contest" would not go. Thomas Lowry telegraphed to Senator Wash burn at Washington, a day or two ago. that ho had arranged to have a cam paign fund on liand. This means that there will he barrels of boodle on hand with which to play the name of six years ajto. Mr. Lowry is Interested in the same railroad interests with Gen. Washburn, and the source from which the fund was secured can be surmised. It is known that the senator from the "Flour City" was hopeless when he left for Washington,and told his friends that money must be forthcoming if they wanted him to go back to the senate. The desire of certain interests can be inferred from the fact that Mr. Lowry hastened to inform the man who repre sents certain interests in the upper branch of congress of his success in raising the boodle. He could not even wait for the information to be sent by the ordiuary course of the mails, but wired in haste. Tlio*e on tlie Scene know that, every day, the tide is drift ins: strongly against the Minneapolis senator and Have realized that heroic measures ruuat be adopted, at once, to do what may be done to counteract the drift of public sentiment. It was real ized that none? must be placed, at once, as a working fund. It is expected that quarters will will be opened iii this city, at once, in the interest of Mr. Washburn. It was known that Mr. Sabin had gone east, and is expected to return in a day or two, with a deter mination of carrying: on a hot campaign to defeat Mr. Washburn. Those well posted on the situation know that the senatorial plum has been wabbling about for some tune and is ready to drop into the hands of any one of a half dozen anxious men. It is known that Gov. Nelson is on the verge of leaching out and plucking the fruit. It has even been hinted that another prominent statesman, who was thought to be out of the race, almost made up his mind to display his starry banner and cail his forces together to surround aiMl Capture the Prize. It ha 3 been seen that the. country is ready to array itsslf against the cities aud demand the senatorship as a matter of rieht. A number of men, who were just on the horizon, have beeu ascend lag higher every clay, with fair pros pects of being in the front, rank when the plum shall fall. One potent thing iv the contest is the sides that are likely to be taken by large corporate interests. There is a plan oa foot to reorganize the Northern Pacific railroad system. It is said i>y an observing Republican that neither the Gould nor the Yanderbiit families will lake any part in reorganizing the Northern Pacific road. '1 hut will leave the scheme in the hands of John D. Rockefeller, the only other man in the country who can take it up. Got. Mer riam is the financial agent of Rocke feller in the West. He is in the East now, and is said to be in consultation with the magnate last alluded to. It is known that any plan of rehabilitation will make it necessary to have a repre sentative in the upper branch of con gress from this end of the line, as well as from California and the East. This will induce Rockefeller to Have a Candidate for the United States senate from Min nesota. The Groat Northern road will t>e onti of tho^e to oppose the Northern Pacitic system, li is known that the magnate of the Great Northern system had a hand in wrecking his rival road, the Northern Pacific. Washburn is not favorable to the Northern Pacific sys tem. vViUi these facts before the ob server he can readily surmise that there wili be a fight for thesenatorsbip. it is not definitely decided who will repre sent the Rockefeller interest. It is evi dent, however, that lie will have a can didate. Washbura will be a candidate in other interests. The country will have several candidates in the interest of popular government and opposed to the bin railroad interests. Taking these as premises, it is plain that there will be at least a tbree-eornered h\ht. There will be abundance of money, and the scenes of six years atco will be re newed with even more intensity. Samuel A. l»iiilli;ts is one of the shrewdest politicians iv the state. He has conducted a daily newspaper In the slate for the past ten years; and for years before that was connected with newspaper worlc. He is acquainted with all tha prominent politicians all over the country. He knows many of the prominent business men in the country, and has had busi ness dealings with them. He has taken an active part in the u'auasernent of Republican campaigns in this state for years, and is acquainted with state affairs. He managed the very remarka ble campaign of Joel Heatwole in his race for congress, and won a signal victory over the most popular Democrat in the state. He is on terms of inti macy with the leaders in his party in the state, and is in a position to know the situation on the senatorial matter. He says that Senator Wash bum is surely beaten. While that gen tleman has made a Kood senator, yet the people don't want him returned. He, iir..ls there is a sentiment in favor of a new man. and believes that it is use less for the friends of Senator Wash Experience Attests It's Worth. t"T\ fT AT T v^^- LVJ JA j w.

Washburn for a second term. He does not regard this as being a weakness to the party, but believes that to atrain send that gentle man to the senate would weaki-n tha party. In this view he is supported by a number of prominent Republican? who are waitiiiß until the proper time comes to declare in favor of some mau to replace him. There are a number of people who are opposed to Mr. Wash i>urn who don't want <Joy. Nelson to get the place. They know tnat lie lias over forty friends who would vote for him at the start if permitted to do so. There is a fear mat if these prominent Kepublicana s. a. pinr.i.nvs. should conoe out, openly, at present, and oppose the present senator, that the sentiment would crystallize around (iov. Nelson. That is just what they don't want, Th>- same'reason has led a number of possible candidates to keep in the background. Thfty don't want to be used as the -'cat's"paw" to pull Nelson chestnuts out of the lire. It may oe depended upon that within a very few days the fight will be on in earnest, and will be waged with vigor until the matter is decided in the legis^ iative hall about the middle of Janu ary. For Senate < Jerk. D. M. Brown, of Fergus Falls, is one of the candidates for clerk of the sen ate this winter, and his friends clnim he has good chances of success. Mr. Brown was secretary of the Seventh district congressional convention which nom inated Mr. Eddy. During the campaign iie was secretary of the Republican county committee", and showed himself an organizer of ability. Mr. Brown is a sandy-haired life insurance agent with a vigorous intellect and a quick temper. He possesses a lively sense of the sacred ness at the formula "What's mine's mine," and will make an ener^tie (icht tor the coveted clerkship. There is uo doubt of his qualifications for the po sition. He is a pronounced Washburn man. THE NEWEST BOORS.
