We favor such expansion of our cur rency as will meet the growing demand of our increasing population and wante, and offset the contraction resulting from the withdrawal of national bank circuit* tion.

Itaurtlett Trlrp la Wsahiagtss. Washington dispatch, 3: Judge Bart lett Tripp of South Dakota is in Wash ington. His visit just at this time is lielieved to be of considerable political significance. He has lieen talked of as tbe democratic camhrdatfe for United States senator to sucoeed the present incumbent Senator Moody, next winter, and for some time it has been announced that he had been visiting the political centers of his own state. Soon after his arrival hers lie had a long consul tation with Senator Arthur P. Gormaji of Maryland the leader of the demo crate of both houses of congress. He also had a confidential chat with Sena tor George Hearst, the many times mil lionaire from California. These facts all put together have inclined many people to believe that the democrats are con templating an attack in Booth Dakota, a state which has not been considersred fighting ground for them. Whatever may have been said as k» his own pros|M»cte as a senatorial can idate is not known, but it known that be is just the man the democratic leaders have been wanting to see to talk to. They want some information from Sooth Dakota. It baa been represented to then that the farmers' alliance party could be counted on as a strong ally in the coming campaign. Some democrats profess to believe that the alliance will be very strong in the next legislature, although it will probably not affect re sults on the state ttckei. Judge Tripp's visit and his views wil) cut a conspicuous figure in tbe policy of the »lent.brats' outline to be carried out fo« 4b# two months in South Dakota^ hlab liM i«. or such election lam as win guarantee avenue.
