Tnt question whether senators and even the president should not be elected by direct popular vote is at tracting public attention and is dis cussed in conjjress. The founders of the government in its present form thought, or nearly all of them did. that when they established the senate on the basis of election by the state legislatures they represented the states of the TJnip in the most practicable if not Ihe only prac ticable. ya.v. ' They also 'thought . ttttU. -srhen thoy constituted the o5e of president of the United States to be filled by the electoral college, they provided for Ihe free choice of that high oflieer by a disin terested body better qualified to malic the choice than the people themselves. In both arrangements the fathers of the constitution showed distrust of the people. In both be it said -with nil reverence- they exhibited a lack or that wisdom which they hhowed roast abundantly in other parts of the field of their memorable labors. The noblest plan of government ever trained was necessarily imperfect in some respects. The wonder is that it is not deemed imperfect in more than three or four particulars. But it is time now to declare what our fore fathers could not sccby reason of their propinquity to the Stuart days, the doctrine of the right of the people to chose at first hands all their rep resentatives. The poople are the monarch, the people's legislature contains :k hereditary legislators to the exclusion of all except interested clashes. Therefore, there is no standing place in the public iad for the logic of liberty for a se&itc representing states without representing immediately the people the states. The states of this union are the people thereof not the large collccth'e class, but the several masses forming the several states. Let them speak through no instrument but by their own potent voices, and let them choose the whole of their national !cgilaiurc and their national executive by a direct vote in stales and as states. This will be the great and final pop ularization, the last analysis of Dem ocratic Republicanism. PROFJSSSIOXPOAL LITJC1AX&' xtxe countless minor offices of the XjR;ted States are filled bv a class kfeown ns ""professional politicians." These men live by politics, receiving places qs reward for political work. Their.oontrol of public ollice is mon opolistic Mr. Bryce estimates their nrmher at 200.000, bnt this is prob ably an underestimate. They consti tute a guild, although the are not organized under formal articles ot association. "With them office getting (or keeping in office) is an in dustry, and the fees and emoluments are accepted as pa for partisan ser vices rather than for the exercise of oSaal fnuctions. The influence which the office holders wield is alto gether out of proportion to their num bers or to their intellectual attain ments. But they iosseas this ad vantage over all other chisscs -they arc unified and organized. They make the management of pri maries and conventions the serious business of their lives, and ac quire a skill and experience in ire-pulling' which ordinary citi zens cannot hope to cope with. The politics ot the country is in the hands of these men. The people elect, but cannot nominate, being redaced to a choice ot candidates selected b the politicians ot oppos ing parties. These politicians dictate sominations, high and low, and after wards foreclose a lien upon public places which they claim to have earned. All others, those who cannot show a certificate of this character, arc excluded. Oxe thing is certain, and that is, nn kas the property owners of this city resposd promptly to the proposition to advertise the city abroad. Uie real estate men. who are moving in the mat ter, will drop it entirely, and there will he a lethargic state which will !OTe damaging to business.

It is hoped the penurious will see it in that light. Two railroad collisions are reported in our telegraphic columns, both caused by the carelessness of telegraph operators. Great responsibility of lifo and property rests upon the light ning manipulators, and they are sel dom recreant to their trust Many a man holds the lives of his fellow beingB in his hand, and one single error may carry death and desolation to many a fireside. The world honors the man who is faithful to his trust, but it brands with eternal infamy the false aud the unfaithful DanvhiLE, Illinois, must be a peculiar town or bo governed by peculiar people of very narrow ideas. Two baseball clubs composed of women played a match game there on Sunday, and they were arrested on a charge ot disturbing tho peace. Just as if women had no right to play ball as well as tho lords of creation. Some thing is wrong with Danville officials. Let the girls play ball if they like. Pkopjsk settlement of the indebted ness of the Pacific railways to the United States is a conundrum which congress is now trying to solve. Possi bly it may hasten the time when the main railway arteries of the nation will come under governmental owner ship or control. Many able minds are convinced of the utility of the plan, and believe it is but a question of time when it will be done. There are few people who know how the ffreat chancellor Bismarck and his ancestors got their name. Bismarck is the name of one of those ancient castles a short distance from Stcudal. The castle had this name because it defended the "Marca," or the lyie where tho river Bieso formed a boundary in former times or mark of defence against intruders. Seattle can no longer claim to have the only female census enumer ator in the United States, for it seems that there is one in this stato, in the person of Mr3. Afiie Cawley, who has been appointed census enumerator for Woodville, Bock Point and Gold Hill precincts in Jackson county. Now for the next. Tins is an eventful time for Astoria, and upon the energy and progress dis played this year, depends largely the future of the city. Hesitancy and in activity this summer will prove disas trous lo tho growth and prosperity. Let zeal and activity bo shown, and success is assured. WeiiIi preserved and hearty for his age is Erastus Lovette, of Borne, Pernio who is 101 years old. He goes ten miles on foot to visit neighbors, has plenty of hair and good teeth, draws a pension as a soldier of the war of 1812 and looks to be no older lhau 50. There is a strife between tho Northern Pacific and the Hunt system as to which railroad will reach Gray's Harbor first. Meanwliile the inhabi tants of that section are happy over their dual railroad prospects. 2-IIcclric Bitters. This remedy is becoming so wel Known and so popular as to need no special mention.
