The Senate has a republican majority and should of course have one to preside, who should be in accord wlth that majority. Now, inasmuch as Gen. l.ognn made so gallant a light for it last fall would it not by right be due to htm now. The bitterness of a personal campaign i'oiind no spot on him and. more than half of the voterg of this country Wltbed hhn in that position, which he lost throagh no fault of hi uwn. es, the price is being paid.
