A Pretty forcible Presentation.
The Kansas City Journal, op-
posing the election of United
States Senators by direct vote of
the people, presents this strong
argument in favor of its conten-
tion: "As viewed by the found-
ers of government, Senators are |
ambassadors from equal states. I ii
They represent that entity ~
known as 'the state' and not the
voting population. This idea of
state entity permeates our whole
system. The President is se-
lected by a convention of the
states, not by a convention of the
people, if the system is wrong,
we should strike at the founda-
tion by making the presidential
office a popular one. What the
supporters of popular elections!
are leading to is a complete aban-
lonment of the system through
which we have grown and flour-
ished for more than a century. I
If we make the office of Senatoi
a popular one, representative o
the state organization, the next
logical step is t*> apportion these
Senators according to popular**
tion, and then the last vestige of! ^
the idea of independent states !
will have taken its departure."

Dispatches from the eastern
states, where the immigration
bureaus of the Northwestern
railways are located, assert that
"two hundred thousand home-
seekers will invade the north-
western states in 1902." This
is regarded as a conservative
estimate by the railway mana-
gers who are preparing to handle
the crowds. When it is stated
that 150,000 home-seekers came
into the northwest last year is
not so remarkable. The esti
mates are made upon the basis
of reports of immigration agents
in the lield in the eastern and
middle states. It is believed the
