W. MORTON MITM, ISfTSft.
IIknry Wattkhhon Ik unkind to Mr.
Bryan. Ho says thoro aro only two men
in Waahtngton who know anything
attiout silver, Stewart and Daniel.
That waa unquestionably a great
pooch that Mr. Bryan delivered
,in Waahhigton a couplo ot wooka
ago. And It la mid that ono
million copies of It will printed.
Yet the majority agalnat free ailvor after
his speech, oxcoodod tho wildcat calcula
tion" mado before his ablo effort. And
notwithstanding tho ono million copios
the senate is suro to voto for repeal.
Thr Indkpkndknt state convention
Will be hold in thla city next week.
The lame amHhe halt, the blind and the
dumb, the frauds and tho fanatics, tho
-croalsers and the demagogues, along
with considerable number of woll
Meaning but misguided pooplo will
bo hero and the welkin will undoubtedly
ring with tho iriorry din o! Jangling booms
'.It is one peculiarity of tho lndopondont
party that nearly overy morabor of it ia u
caadldate f6r nearly overy office to which
he ia eligible, and tho third party
conventions are alwaya Interesting
Thr republican county convention Is
only twenty days off, and a great deal
ot talk ia heard about job and pot-house
politicians and rings, etc., and the an
nual, clamor for reform cornea welling
up from the corner ot Eleventh and O
atreeta with an occasional echo in tho
newspaper oftcea. In Lancaster county
polities the other fellow the fellow who
waaU what you are trying for, or who
elands in the way ot your getting it, la
always a pothouse politician, and he ia
invariably putting up a "Job," or man
Ipulatlng a "ring." And the cry of "re
form" always comes from ono candidato
who ia trying to down anothor candidato.
After all Is said and dono tho result is
always practically tho same. Whon tho
fellows who havo yollod tho loudest for
reform got into office tho public isn't
nble to boo any material dlfforonco
between thorn and the men thoy hnvo
displaced or doteated. Hut thoro Is tho
same clamor at ovory spring and fall
.lootion. In fact it would bo imioaaiblo
now to ruu a campaign In thlscaunty
without the Injection ot reform thunder,
not as an evidence ot good faith, but for
political purposes only.
t Tan editor ot tho Boatrico Expreaa is
be congratulated on his 'penetration.
- He visited Lincoln the othor day and ho
nays that overlooking the Mosher liasco,
the viaduct troubles, tho street cur
franchises, the school board porploxities,
the' immoralities and debauchory ot tho
bottoms, and other things now rampant
in this lively city, he was really "agree
ably surprised",, when ho entered tho
city's gates. ' He saw homes that are
,modela ot architectural novelty and
beauty, vast public improvements and
conveniences, and ornato business
blocks. He observed that our business
district, "even in these day ot stagnation
and dearth, presents an animated and
' altogether cheering spectacle.' Mora
over he found tho city "cleanly, sym
metrical and inviting." Ho discovered
unmistakable traces ot "wostorn thrift
, nHd energy." and ho run plumb into
something which ho callod "culture."
Bumming up he comes to tho conclusion
that the "capital city is worthy its
proud name and reflects honor and
credit upon tho state." Thr Couuikk
congratulates its vigilant contemporary
upon its discovery ot Lincoln. To bo
sure we have been discovered before,
as waa America before Christopher
made his memorable voyage, but there
are things that can't be disebvored too
often, and Lincoln is one ot them. Tho
editor ot the Expreat is a gentleman
who ia able to appreciate a good tiling
Or the many able speeches in tho
house of representatives on tho silver
attention, that ot Congressman Bartlett
waa notable, It not for its eloquence, for
Meaouad sense. Answering Mr. Bryan

What May be Ktpeetod from the fifty-
Washington, Aug. 81. "There is no
mercy in politics." With this senten
tious sentence an old habitue of thecapi
tol summed up the striking features of
the new house committees appointed by
Speaker Crisp. The speaker hesitated
about displacing the heads of the two
principal committees and only came to
his decision when convinced that what
are called the exigencies of politics de
manded it, but this cannot lessen the
blow to Jadge Holmaa, retired at the
close of his life from the committee
where he had made his reputation, and
William M. Springer, deposed from the
head of the most important committee
of the house, Just when it had something
of historical moment to do. To Mr.
Springer the loss iri prestige ia especially
severe at thla time, as for the first timo
in years he is threatened with a tight for
the Democratic congressional nomina
tion. A wealthy Springfield banker
named Caldwell, according to the belief
of Illinoisaaa here, will strive to get the
nomination, and aa he recently proven twl
the state fair being moved from Spring
field to Peoria it is feared he may secure
Mr. Springer's home county of San
gamon. According to the unwritten
westers political code, no man can gain
a nomination unless backed byhisowu
Ia selecting his new men harmony be
tween the house and the administration
waa aimed at by the speaker, and up
pnrently has been secured, Possible
combinations against the speaker for re
election have also been guarded against
by good committee assignments in state
from which trouble might come. And
with it all the speaker has stuck to tin
rule that no man can have friends who
does not stand by his friends.
The south gets the lion's share of the
committee chairmanships 82; eastern
and middle states, 11, and western statot,
18. Of the Important chairmanships, tin'
south gets ways and means, appropria
tions, judiciary, commerce, rivers and
harbors, foreign affairs, postofflcea, puln
)io lands, territories, public buildings ami
The eastern states havo as their im
portant chairmanships only naval nf
fairs and immigration. Tho western
states secure military affairs, banking
and currency, merohaut marine and
fisheries, pensions, Indian affair tiuil
labor, with Missouri having coinago and
agriculture. The numerous chanw
among nortboru Democrats and their
short tenure of service is at least par
The most Important committee, now
that the bill for the repeal of the Ger
man law is out of committee jurisdic
tion, is the committee on ways anil
means. The fact that Mr. Wilson ot
West Virginia is chairman is conclu-iive
evidence that the bill to be framed will
be a complete revision of the tariff uul
one thoroughly in accord with the viewt
of the administration, for Mr. WiUou
waa the president's choice for tho plirjc.
Mr. Wilson says that the committee will
go to work promptly and will prepare h
bill making a complete revision, but in
timated that he was favorable to an ad
journment of congress until December,
when the silver question is out of tuc
way. It is the purpose to make suili
tariff cuts as will meet the party plat
form. Additional revenues for the bui
nort of government will be raised by v.i.
aicrease of the whisky tax.

The new committee on ways nm'
means oonsUU of 17 members. Thi
uew chairman ia a man of studious hab
its who will give close, carefal thought
to the preparation of the tariff bill and
will make a brilliant prepared speech In
ita explanation and defense, Hlsfrienl
believe ha will prove himself not oul)
capable ot answering attacks after u
week of study and thought, but ot lead
bag hla party and acting qakkly.
The eWef daty of trWpiagdawa aaoro
priatiofi devolves on appropriation
committee. Mr. Holmaa's successor,
Governor Bayers of Texas, enjoys the
respect, esteem and coafideaea of the
house to a marked degree. Ha is a poor
speaker, but a hard, conscientious work
er, fair, just and upright. His party
has added to his burdens at the very
outset by iacreasiag the membership of
the committee from 15 to 17. It is an
axiom at the capitol that the more men
on an appropriations committee the lar
ger will be the bills brought in. A con
sideration of past appropriation bills will
how the justification for the axiom.
Ia the Forty-sixth congress the appro
priations committee waa raised tram 11
to IS members. Of the three congresses
preceding the Forty-sixth, two ware Dem-
ratio and one Republican. Of the three
(greases beginning with the Forty
i, two were Democratic and one
tblicaa, so that politics outs no Ag
in the oomparuoa. The regular
I appropriations for the three
earlier congresses aggregated tl,Mt,
86S,9M.D7, or aa annual average of
fl71,147,es.4; for, the three later con
gresses, $l,8o9,964,818.91, or aa annual
average of tS9S,880,808.18. Kiel wive
of pensions, the annual average for the
earlier ccngresses was $1M,7M,84.M
and for the later congresses $1M,8I8,
18.70. These figures ia each case of
course are exoluelve of the permanent
annual appropriations for the public
When I went in to ask him for this
comparison, Governor Bayers said he
knew the natural tendency of larger
membership was toward Increased ap
propriations, but he was well pleased
with the membership and believed ha
would be able to make aa exception to
the rule in this congress.

The presence of Amoa Cummlngsat
the head of the naval committee means
a more liberal policy toward the nary
and appropriations for new ships. Mr.
Cummlngs has persistently fonght for
the new navy and has constantly advo
cated an adherence to the policy of pro
Tiding new ships each yeai .
Mr. Bland's committee on coinage is
pretty evenly divided between the silver
and anttettvsr men. He faces a number
of new men, including two of the most
pronounced "goldbugs" of the house,
Messrs. Rayuer of Maryland and Barter
of Ohio. The other financial commit
tee, that presided over by Mr. Springer
of Illinois, appears to be opposed to state
bank tax repeal. It Is not likely to re
main unheard of, for Mr. Springer is a
man fertile in resources and ideas and
will make the most out of his place
The foreign affairs committee, with
Mr. McCreary of Kentucky chairman,
will bo in thorough accord with the
policy tho Rdminstration pursues 6n the
Hawaiian quostiou. Mr. McCreary is a
gentleman of culture and learning, and
as a member of tho international mone
tary conference and of tho foreign affairs
committee for years has fitted himself
for his present post.
As chairman of the Indian committee
Mr. Holmau will pare the Indian bill
closely and will soo that no big claims,
auch as were originally in last year's bill,
aro brought forward. A significant fea
ture of the makeup of the Indian com
mittee is the absence of men on it from
the Indian couutry.
Rivers and harbors is practically un
changed and is committed in advance to
liberal waterway improvements, while
public buildings is committed to a con
trary policy, Chairman Bankhead hav
ing opposed any new public building
bills in the last congress, and with such
success that the congress waa absolutely
unique in that not a single now public
building was provided for during the
whole congress. Mr. Hatch and bis agri
cultural committee do not show much
change and later on will bring in anti
options and pure food bills.
No radical immigration or naturalisa
tion laws will come from the immigra
tion and naturalization committee, with
Mr. Oeisscnhainer of New Jersey at its
head. His selection waa opposed una
valllngly by labor organizations on the
ground that ho was against the Imposi
tion of restrictions on European immi
gration. Mr. Oelssenhainer has never
taken a prominent part in the house, but
in committee and quietly he steadfastly
opposed measures Intended to operate as
a bar to free immigration.
The labor committee, now deemed of
little importance, may possibly spring in
to unexpected prominence before the
congress is over in view of the demon
strations of tho unemployed. Ita chair
man is one of Chicago's bright Irishmen,
Lawrence McGann. His colleagues are
nearly all new members.
Ot the other committees It is net nec
essary to say much, they being practical
ly the same as last year, aa ia the case of
the judiciary committee, or else waiia
