Some of tho democratic members ir 4t
that the breach fa o wldV and so deep now
between the republicans that John R.

hourx of life. From the moment that he

gallows trap, Theodo.-e Durrant krows
what Is expect-1 of him. A book and

affairs since his arrest for the murder
of Bian.-he Lamont. Deputy Warden Ed

"Vie wouM euffar more than rty other

But, ho-ower h divided, a barrier win

"But that Is not the worst of it. Ir
this dLmembennent occurs the people of

have a greater power of production I nan
any other like number of people. All they
need tn to tie arotMsd and to have their

Rust, tjhey would become the producers
Of the gfabe and wtjU produce so cheaply
that Chens would be no ompetltlon."
BONNER'S IDEA.
Ex-Presidents Should Not Be Compelled
to -Practice Law.
New York. Jan. i J3. L. Bonner, of
Montana, In the course of a conversxtlea
made the suggestion last night :hait every
e president of The Vnt'el States should
be sent to the senate. Mr. Bonner
who i on his way to Italy, is one of the
wealthiest crtiiwis of Montana, where
he has large mlnln?, agricultural and in.
dustrial Interests, said:
"There fs one thing tha.t should be set
tled, and that (s the term of presidents
and the treamme-nt of them when their
terms expire. I Oiiink a president ought to
be elected for a term of eight years, and
then be ineligible or re-election. ITpoa
his retirement I Think 'he should be placed
upon a pen-"ion ertal to one-half of tne
Jaliiry he drew vs president. Thus he
wwul.l e,nt-r Into oftk-e practically unfet
tere.1 and would not have to trim poltN
ically or otherwise, toward the future.
It dies not seem ro m- that an ex-presl.
.lent should be comp!l.il to go to it small
town land practice laiv for a living. I
think he shou'.d be s-nt to the senate to
r main aa long ad he lives. His knowi.
exlg of the affairs of .he nation would be
extremely beneflctnl lo that body."
