Governor Potntek did not spend
so much time in selecting a successor
to district judge in the Ninth

Mr. Bryan did his pirt more promptly

Those antis who are quoting Wil
liam H. Seward as an anti-expansion
ist because he opposed the annexation
of Texas in the campaign of 1844,
should go a little slow. Seward op
posed the annexation of Texas not be'
cause he was an anti-expansionist, but
because he was against the acquis!
tion of any more slave territory.' The
purchase of Alaska, later consum
mated by Mr. Seward, showed his at-
itude upon expansion.

There are two questions that seem
to puzzle thousands of people and it is
' possible some subscriber to The News
will volunteer to answer them at an

1. When does the nineteeuth century

Some of those Grand Army posts

commissioner of pensions for his al

unearth a few interesting facts if they
turned their attention to the case of
some dozen or more republican sena

the retention of "Colonel" Richard
Brieht, the present sergeant at arms
of the senate. Having been a mem
ber of the Knights of the Golden
Circle and an associate of Vallandig-
ham during the war, "Colonel" Bright
as sergeant at arms, has had no mercy
on union soldiers, discharging them
by the dozen and filling their places
with democrats. "Colonel" Bright is
not on trial, however; the old soldiers
understand him thoroughly, but per
haps they have a difficulty in compre
hending the good politics of those re
publican senators who are his
staunch supporters.
