inauguration of the nrenidnnt in m.
ceiving some consideration in th
rxouse, and although it is well
known that an amendmnnt. tn tha
Constitution is about the most dif
ficult proposition to put through,
there i8 Some honn nrnrpnanri that

it has passed the resolution provid
ing for each a change. One of tha
earnest advocated nf thn' nhon.
Senator Cockrell, of Missouri, whose
conservatism is unqestioned; Ha
thinks it would be a good thing for
many reasons, chief among them
being that the weather wnnM ha
mush better the last nart of A nril i.
than the first part of March.'
"Crowds are bound to come to such
events." said Senator CnnkrAil
"and hundreds go to their death as
a result of exposure in the inclem-
eut weather." But that in nnt. thn
only reason he advances. He saya-
mat tne short session of -threa

I, is no w , recognized as -a n easy
thing for a determined, minority to

other men have frerinentl v Tiinlntnrl
out is that oftentimes the short sea- -:
sion is controlled by a party tba( - ,
has bsen defeated and dianrnditnrl .
at the polls, and that bad legislation,
extravagant appropriations and im
