i making a vigorous use of the word
ruekon" in deseribinrf the loyal
support jiven tn Mr. Ciillom by tho
editors whom Mr. C'tilloni put into
postolilees tinder the Harrison admin
istration. Mr. Medill intimates that
their Kratitndo is "a lively sense of

the next presuli ntial election is not
Kx-Sf.satk In. allh. who is con
siilcreil tlie probable successor n (Sen
ator Martin, thinks the tarilT will not
figure much as nn issue in 18!M'. He
propped in a familiar strain: "The
wealth of the ri-h, the poverty of
the poor, the exclusive and menac
ing jiowcr of preat corporations, the
strangulation of trnde by a vicious
linancial system nnd the more gvn
ral dilTiision of property amoni the
timw- these are the vital juctinn
of toilny. liichevcr party shall
show its rapacity to ileal intelligent
ly and successfully with these prob
lems will hold the reins of govern
ment.", Not satilied w ith carrying nearly
everything at the last election, the
republicans have evidently deter
mined to go after what little they
didn't pet. They are goinp to con
test the two democratic congressmen
elected in Illinois. Congressman Ow
ens, in Kentucky, and do v. lludd, in
California. It is too bad that the re
publicans should mt have had the
whole business at election time. It
is a shamo that they should I.e.
obliged to go to the trouble and ex
pense of reaching for what they
failed to acquire.
Auain New York is to have a gouty
mayor. Mr. Strong could not attend
the Morton dinner. Initialise, as Mr.
lcpew is represented as saying, he
was ill in toto, w hich is a Latin joke
of thel'nion league's beloved Chaiin
eey, meaning gout. ICarly in the
ilo's. says the Iaily Mercury, the
city had a guty mayor in Ambrose
it. Kingsland. rich bank president
like Mr. Stronp. and a high liver like
tho latter. Many an engagement
was broken nnd adjournments had
lieeansn Mayor Kinpsland sent word
he had the gout. Hut "its English,
tiito Knplish. you know" to have the
gout. Half the lord mayors of Lon
dou have had it.
(Koio.r.rows college at Washing
ton has made a law forbidding it's
students playing foot ball until such
rules are enacted as to preclude the
possibility of serious injury. North
western university has taken steps in
the same direction. If the rules can
be changed so that accidents will be
few and slugging unknown, the game
appeals stronply to every lover of
good sport and fugged muscles. The
games this year have been more dis
astrous than ever before, and tho
game lias Wen subject to the severest
criticism. I'.roken limbs, bruised
faces nnd twisted ninsclos arc not re
garded with favor as a rule.
Little Switzerland has played a
wondcrfnl tnirt in the history of lib
erty and the development of demo
cratic institutions. Mho not only has
a great history, but she has a most
active and strenuous political life to
day. Her legislators .and her people
seem as fertile and original as ever in
devising the methods and machinery
of freedom and progress. Vill.m
I. McCracken, the author of 'The
Kmc of the Swiss Hepublic," contrib
utes nn important article to the De
cember number of tho New England
Magazine, on "Swiss Solutions of
American Problems," pointing out in
a most forcible way how we may
profitably learn from the little Alpine
republic. It is an article which
should be widely read in America at
