"rilE MAJORITY'S VKSrOTISM.
Tho paHt week bus ahown what we
have to expect of the very slender to
publican majority in the present Iiouho
r reproHcntutivos; that in, it hut shown
what tlioHo have to expect who have
minds able to lull or conceive wUut will

few republican who have no other law
than their own wih, and their concep
tion of whit leuislutive actH will bent
tend to keep the "pluma" of olllce In
their handa, or on the way to their ca
pacious atomichs. To thoao who have
not recelveJ their political education in
the school of Credit Mohilier and cor-pel-hogUm,
no amount of labor or nat
ural ability can forecast the result.
These lust will have to wait till con-r-?-is
adjourns before they can venture to rink
their mental force by endeavoring, bv
following; any nyntem of law, to com-lu-.it
what the reault will be.
It iu to be expected thn ilie loirty
that was In the majority would not in
the leant conaldur tho vUlit'i- oi the
minority even though th.it i.iuority rep
resented an actual iiu'Jority u the voters
of the nation. If ibey ad connned
tliwtnaclvea to thiJ. ' one who remcin
bora the Star itoiite experienco, or the
' infamy of tie; Punt-Traders' reputation,
need liave beon surprised ; and but few
would have a word of fault to find with
tu -men. however ninth they may have
objected to the measures. But when the
representative of all the people are not
satiHlled with doing acts detrimental to
their own reputations, but must attack
the principles and overthrow the rules
on which the business ol the country is
constitutionally conducted, even their
political enemies must protest.
The very rules that that autocrat,
Speaker lleed, who at present is usinK
his exalted position solely to show his
own littleness, bus overthrown, were es
tablUhed by the party which at present
it is to be hoped he misrepresents.
But whenever the republican purty have
wished to anything, who can remember
when they were trammelled by atty
laws of their own enacting? T'ne ruliogs
of even their own iiifal'.i'u'e Jtlaine w ere
passed by nvihil'-''!,',t''!'',J' were
nvLUheTecoe'i: .-noriiie of the
viouse. Thr.v -o, in eflect, "Gentlemen
of the minority, you have no rights that
we are going to respect. Though balked
by the rules we had made, you did not
resort to unconstitutional mean to ac
complish your ends when you were in
power, yet we do not intend to be ham
pered bv any such thing as parliamen
tary law'." Koally, though, uu one ought
to be surprised that the successors of
those who found excuses and means for
violating the constitution, should not re
spect tho rules of legislative assemblies.
Were it not for tho violation of our
rights as citizens of a republic, we could
get more of sutijfaction than of the op
posite out of the present high handed
nrni'Mndini? iroini! on at Washington.
None but the most hide-bound partisans
will support such measures. And as the
nh.muB of a very fu w votes would have
changed the last two elections, go most
likely will tnuy etiunge me nrai. bo,
while their own acts will be a uullstono
about their necks, yet we no noi toei
disposed to entirely devote ourselves to
rejoicing. II it were Bimply our defeat
they were accomplishing, nobody well
disposed to the public good would ob
ject, any more than just hard enough
to make them keel) on. But when those
in public life do acts that result in more

cratic politicians of the new state, say

Bituallon will be c mnuuri or the dead

dontials of the four men who will go to

ators. Colonel Clark does not auren with
Colonel Broadwater, the member of the
democratic national committee from
Montana, that the Australian voting
systeM is till bad. "On the whole it
i an exculleiit law," he said, "but in
many respects it would be better if
changed to suit the country. In tho out
lying district of Montana, a yet but
sparely Bottled, the law imposes a hard
ship upon the voter. Ho is forced to
ride sometimes 100 miles over the prairie
or through the mountains until he
reaches a registration place, where tin
can merely certify that he resides in
the precinct. Wlien the day for voting
comes, ho must take the ride uvui again,
and be prepared to resist a chullenge,
and to provo that he is the reuister
ed voter. Tho feature of the law
which leipiiies registration is all
right in tho cities and the thickly
settled districts, but is all wronu
in the other parts of the state, and
should be done uwuy with."

Benton county is a heavy loser. The
bridge over St. Mary's river is a total

was tied to each bank, but when the
water subsided it was found thut the
pier hud been washed away, anil the
whole structure sank into the river.
Benton is a very large county and many
streams intersect it, and the loss of
bridge everywhere is almost universal.
A conservative es;imate of the loss to
the county, including the Mnrv'a river
bridge, which will cost ItlOOO to' replace,
is $25,000. Just across the river, in I. Inn
county, the lowlands were flooded about
live miles eastward, but beyond tho
scattering of fences over the fields, and
the destruction of several burns and a
few head of cattle, the damage will be
