An old-line republican of Platts

on the street the other day with, "Say,
don't we elect congressmen this year?"
"Yes! Why?" we replied. "I thought

A good many democrats favor Gen
era Miles for president on the ground
that he Is not an avowed partisan, If
ho ever voted; that his record Is
blameless; that s is the greatest liv
ing soldier, and a hero of a hundred
battles; that he has no enemies In
either wing of the party, and that he
himself would be all the platform
that would be required. That he Is
not a vociferous partisan or a profess
ional politician might not Injure him
Gamaliel Bradford urges that his
, military achievements would constl
tute his suniclcnt platform. The
whig convention that met at Harris
burg December 4, 1831), nominated
General Harrison for president and
adopted no platform whatever his
opponent was Van Huron. Harrison
was elected and "Van, Van, was
used-up-man." So with Miles; he never
did run, but perhaps ho would.
Tub democrats smiled during the
reading of the president's message on
the 4th Inst, when he laid before con
gress the facts and Incidents which
aused him' to create a new republic
called Panama. The contention that
the canal can be built "forthwith" as
the president said, If the treaty Is rat
ified, when at the most conservative
estimate It will take twenty, If not
forty years, was enough to make any
one smile. It seems tho president
knew a revolution was about to burst
at a given date, for he had read many
newspaper articles to that effect and
had seen recent travelers from Colum
bia and Panama. All told the same
story. Therefore ho headed It off,
except the killing of ono Chinaman
by sending the American navy to the
Isthmus to protect American lines
and Interests. The president asserted
that Columbia had the power to rat
Ify the Hay-Herron treaty, and give
ua the canal strip at our own price
and In falling to do so alTronted the

au settled the senate has only to
