have never taken any one into my

The fact is I do not kuow myself how
the l'opulists will vote on reorganiza

a reorganization of tho senate.
Tho one thing 1 shall certainly
favor strongly will be the united
action of the Populists in any course
they may adopt. We have a place ou
the map now and we don't want to
lose it. We must preserve our individ

either party. Whatever we do I hope
win in done as a body. When the
other Populist members 'of the senate

A happy thought of bis own led him to
