It was reoontly Btated by tho Lincoln
Journal that Senator Young of this dis
trict bad written to parties iii the Fourth
ward of Norfolk requesting that ho bo
released from a promise mado before
election that ho would not support I
K Thompson for United States senator
Wo havo it from good authority that
Mr Young has mado no such request
although Buoh release was talked of by
friends of his who believed that he
would bo in better condition to grasp
tho senatorial situation as presented if
bo were free from all promises and en
tanglements From those who talked
with Mr Young on this subject it can
not be learuod that he has over stated
what bo would do on tho senatorial
question iu case he were freo from the
anti Thompson pledge mado before
The Rrat trmisslborlan railway It
aconiplishlug more than one good re
ult Ah a consequence of Its construc
tion the old route of Russians banished
to Siberia Is to be abandoned The ter
rible hardships ami cruelty of those un
happy persona who have been obliged
to travel that route has furnished more
than one thrilling and pathetic story
One of the most read books of young
people In the earlier days of the centu
ry was Ellabelh or the Kxllea of Si
beria In which the privations and
tortures of the Journey were graphical
ly related Later the public was made
familiar with the horrors of the route
by the vivid pictures of George Ken
nan and still more recently Tolstoi has
presented It In his novel Resurrec
tion Happily It Is to be a thing of
the past as the road to banishment If
It exists at all must now be u railroad
But the Intelligence comes from St Pe
tersburg that Siberia Itself Is to cease
to be a penal colony aud that the exile
system Is to be abandoned altogether
Thus the Iron horse tlylng across the
great steppes of Siberia as the servant
of commerce Is likewise the herald of
better and more humane conditions for
the subjects of the czars vast domain
Commenting on Mr Bryans position
that you shant slido on our cellar
door tho Philadelphia Ledger says
Mr Bryaus allusion to tho proposed
re organization of tho democratic party
is not without uucouscioua humor Ho
says that reorganization must be up
plied internally aud that a person must
be inaldo of the
party boforo ho can par
ticipate ia the party managomeut This
is obviously a rejoinder to tho sound
money democrats who aro urging that
the democracy shall purge itsblf of pop
ulism aud socialism aud return to a
creed that democrats may subscribe to
without mental reservation The amus
ing feature of Mr Bryaua statement is
that he denies to others what he has
always claimed for himself In 1S93 he
advocated the election of the populist
Weaver to be president of the United
States Four yeara later in the succeed
ing democratic national couveution Mr
Bryan appeared as a contesting delegate
waa awarded a Beat helped to revise the
platform in the interest of populism aud
became the candidate of the Chicago
democracy Surely the anti Bryau
democrats have as muoh right to restore
the party to its old position as Mr
Bryan had to divert it from its historic
