He was not a univer sity graduate, and evidently had little education of the amlemic kind. By na ture and by early choice he was a wan derer, pioneer, fighter and egotist. His voluminous writings deserve but a hum ble place in literature. At their best, his hooks Jack high literary merit, their main value being purely historical. As a fair sample of Smith's method and stylo we cite a passage from "New England's Trial": "Here I must entreat a little your fauonra to digresse.

BY IIKXHY McLKAN, OF l'AOI.A. The paramount principle of Populist faith is the public ownership of public utilities. This means that the People's jwirty has for its aim the substitution of co-operation for xmiH'tition as an industrial system.
