Adam Brede, editor of the I last-

from his classic brow, smiles the
smole Ix.rn of victory and observes
that it was a crand victory. Then
he grows soU-r, and takes his pen
cil ncriin in hand to sav that the
people will now demand:
"A law to compel railroads to
pav their taxes at the same time and
in the same manner as a private individual.

The Legit Boss.
The republican party, through
Secretary Bonaparte, has at last in
vented a reform'that no other party
has prior claim to, and that no oth
er party will probably care to claim.
This Bonaparte invention may be
stvled "The Legal Boss." for the
fantastic idea is, ''that the people
should have legally constituted
bosses to make all the nominations
for public offices and thus do away
with nominating conventions." No
one but a republican boss, or would-
be boss, could invent stich a scheme
of licensing the boss system. Dem
ocrats are intent on Jself-govern-
ment and are determined that the
people must govern the bosses and
not the bosses the people. But in
the republican breast there ever
seems to dwell the lingering heridi-
tary hope, descended from Hamil
ton, that the few, or for that mat
ter the one, shall rule and dictate
to the many. If the voters are ca
pable of electing a boss, they are
capable of nominating
