NOW THAT postmortems on Bryan are In fnsjiion it is worth while to read a,good 4 one. For that purpose the leader is' recommended to consult the ditorial page of this week's Harper's Weekly, the following extract from which impresses us as eminently just: IF Mr. Bryan can only take to hcait the lesona of tho two campaigns in which he h.is hocn so intoicoting a fisuie, and benefit by tho teachlnKi of his repeated defeat.-., he will ultimately ume out of his experience ' ttronjer unci a letter man. As m liao toga tiled Mr. ilij.m's carier, up think he has cause to find pliim in the fict th.it a src.it ninny thousards of people 1'Ko him in spite of his "uiomh."

'I he defeated candidate is a? jtl a very yoiina man, as men in public life j,'o, and it is lea'on rble to cipoit that havinir c-cpei iciiced so bit Icily the icentmcnt of the people asainat his had" associations and pernicious piinciple?, altir a hrlef period of retiicment pjt-ed in lellectiou and self-study he may jet .main eineige Into public life, hii fine cpi.ilitics doelnpcil to tho full, hii weaknesses crushed out, a fla-un- vvoilhy of confidence and thcrefoie of b-adeiship. All must admit the existence In Mr. Bryan of many admirable personal traits together with intellectual eiiwll tles very tare in public men. A mln.l more tiulcU. nimble nnil v.-ell controlled has not yet appealed In our genera tion. Its defect Is lark of depth and this lack comes largely from tho fact lliat its possessor, swept along In, the cwlft tide of his ucimylng nnreer. has been too busy talking and mnnoeuvur iiiS to do the fiuiet studying and under. ko the ripening InflueiHst-a of medita tion essential to mental greatness. The worst rliai'Ke against Mr. Uryan Is that he has tried with all his mlgh'. to array class against class; that, lit short, he has boon a demagogue. Thl.i eh urge Is liiu rroin our reading of Amoiiean history wo do not recall sm other man who him so completely me: the definition of the word or who In bis ilemngoglsm ban been mote ic sotirceful, Ingenious and adroit. But on the other hand ho has had the sav ing merit of frankness. Nobody n l any time has failed to jm eel vet what ho was driving at. With boundless en ergy and youthful exuberance ho threw his superb gifts to their fullest ca pacity Into the attempt to foment so dal dlFcontenl; yet for our part wo prefer that kind of demagogue to the cfjijd .blooded, calculating kind person HCpd by men like Clrovor Olovftland, t'tovebind played on ovovy string that Bryan lias played on, lie thundered rnjndefouFly ngalust the "communism i-'C. pelf," (igninst "tobbor barom," against various combinations of "wealth" nnd "greed," But ho alwnya arranged his odlclal conduct so tint It' would not especially alarm the In terests he lambasted in public. In his dcmagoglsm he "played safe." The difference between his record and Bryan's, as wu gauge It, Is not to the l.itter'a discredit. Jltyan U loo clever a man to ills aiipcmr.

It mock: our lnl-ery ami our poveily and innlls our in tclliuence The llieoiy,of the Macon paper Is that the South should go into the elec toral college independent of any party of the North and lefuse to join with any Northern parly until there Is Northern consent to repeal of the Fif teenth amendment. This proposition, it Is needless to point out, is fantastic and vain. Its only result would be lo undo the South's recent rapid ad vances, 'build up the old bars of sec tionalism and doom the descendants of the slave-holding oligarchy to a. living political death. The very oppoTTe is what Is needed in the South. Its people have tried for three decades the foolish experiment of Keeping together In a partisan bigotry which has sub stituted prejudice for intelligence and they have goo nothing out of It. The future presents no expectation that on this batis they ever can get anything out of it. Why, then, go on in such a rut of failure? Why not put reason to tho fore, divide In party os other men divide, desist from all effort to up build unAmerlcan lines of caste and, if the bulk of the black vote is unfit for the suffrage, disqualify it by fair re strictions and then set to work to up lift the ignorant. Objection Is nowhere made to .suf rago restriction. It is jiracticed hi the heart, of educated New England and has strong advocates everywhere. Ob jection is made to unfair restriction; to devices' deliberately employed against one race and not against another. This is 'unAmerlcan and intolerable. The inherent fair play of our civilization denounces it and, sooner or later, will extinguish it. It. behooves the South to recognize the moral force of this gen eral Judgment nnd to fit its conduct to the spirit of the limes. The hold up of a number of John Alexander Dowio's English lace mak ers at Philadelphia seems to be an other Instance of tho fact that tho con tract labor laws are generally enforced nt the wrong time. It Is to be re gi cited, in view of the many Ignorant and restless foreigners who are land ing In thifi country dally, equipped to becomo firebrands of discontent, that laws exist which will prevent evpn temporarily tho landing of people who will 'become desirable citizens. Tho hysteilcal young woman who lias been making accusations against tin; mayor of Elmlra evidently does not realise the Importance of sticking to one line of testimony in order to make out a good case.

It Is a common cxpres ion th.it the -.fuc-prcvldcncy is an ofllci.il tomb, and In this case there Is a popular hope that It will not prove so. It is more than likely that the limitations of the vlee-ptcsldency will not be MifUcicnt to suppress tho active and gal lant Teddy. Xt conventionalities arc likely to do that. Hut the popular e-ipeetation that he will bo able to nuke more out of his otfice than other occupants is ceitaln of disappointment, lie may be considerably moio piomlnent, vastly iiioio useful, but the offlce 'of Uce-pifsidenl can. not lie mule mme impoitant than prescribed by the constitution. The holder of the othee is elected becau-e the president, may be unable to lilt hi? ofllec until tlie end of the tern1. As ie. iii.n ked, his powir is potential.

The speaker of the house, aj prcsitlins officer, is chairman of the lommittee on rules, apjiolnts the members of M eommittees anil names thot- who may address the house. Tlii'e attributes make him master ot legislation in the hou.se. He is the chosen authoiity of the nnjority, and the majority rules. The hoito, wheic allappropiiation.s of money for the expenses; of (coiernmenl inu.l ciiiiiln.ile, is ically more powerful than the presi dent lini-4-lf. It, with the a-sistance of the tn ate, may foicc tho president to do Its biddluir, and without the senate may render lire piesldeni poucrlcss to do anything;. The t)H iker, as the almost supreme a ft ill of the majority, is therefore a vtry grieat officer, almost livalin that of lh' chief niagistiaey. It is a eij- different ulllce fiom that of the pie-iidin- olllcci- of the sen Ho. If tlie Democrats bill been successful at tlie poll. Mr. Sleenson would haie been tlie vice-inesiditit and the pre siding olllcer of the senate. Tills body would liiu been, as it will lie, Itcpuhllcaii. Sliouhl Mr. Stevenson lino been the pieslding officer, he could line f-tertised no contiol mm tlie liusi. HC.S.S of tin stnate.

If such a pie.-lilin- oir.cer should attempt to appoint committees not. affi eeil on by the ma jnrity, the senate would not iecogni the.,e (ommittii's. If he nhoulil attempt lo control and diteit the htisinrss of the senate, tlie sena tors would not tolei.ite it. Tho vieo-pusident, when of tho same political faith, has no more mitliority, and the attitude of the senate limatd him is not dlircicnt than it would be if he who :i DeMoer.it.
