friends by tho diguilled manner in
which ho has carried himself while
smarting under tho dirty purmmnl at
tack mado upon him by Commissary
General Engan, in his testimony befoto
tho war investigating commission. To
a man of Geueral Miles temperament
it has been no easy matter to sit still
and say nothing while walling for tho
war department to call down and pun
ish his subordinate for having called
him about every known sort of a liar.
Congress is also waiting to sco boiuo
thing done, somo punishment meted
out to lit tho crime, and if something
isn't dono very soon, congress may
take tho bit in its teeth and do some
thing itself. DTho action ofl'tesidcnt
through Secretary Alger, to roviso bis

anybody, becauso it doesn't pun.ab.

Eagan has demonstrated his uulii etl
to hold such an important and resp xuh
iblo position, regardless of Oen. Alius,
and not a few of thorn havo laid that
ho should bo cashiered.
Tho routino business in bouso and
sonate is being pushed along as rapidly
as possible, but the chances for an ex
tra session continuo to grow, owing to
tho uncoitninty about many things in
tho sonate, and especially about tho
timo that will bo consumed by tho
In all tho numerous lights to havo
executive sessions of tho sonnto held
open doors, Senator illoar had, Jamil
tho present contest, over Senator Ber
ry's motion to consider tho treaty of
peaco with open doors, always been
ono of tho most valued lighters for
socret oxecutivo sessions. Consequent
ly, his speech in support of Mr. Berry's
motion was surprising to many of bis
colleagues as well as to tho public.
Open executive sessions of tho senate
may como sumo day, but tboy aro not
yet in sight.
Two funerals woro novor held in tho
capitol so oloso togothor as that of Sen
ator Morrill, held in tho senate cham
ber a fortnight ago, and that of Repre
sentative Dingloy, hold in tho bouso of
representatives Monday. Thoso who
aro superstitious onougb to boliovo
thatcalamiticrjusually travoljin bunches
of three, aro wondering who will be
tho next man of prominonco to dio.
Tho Nicaraugua caual bill will bo
voted upon by tho sonnto this week.
It will pass by a largo majority pos
sibly without a division. The house
inter-state and foreign commerco com-
mittco will (lovoto about all of this
wtek to hearings of tho Uvo or six
canal bills, all differing in somo way
from tho Morgan bill that will bo
passed by tho sonnto. Many of tho
friends of tho canal say that its worst
onemies aro posing as its friends, in
ordor to stavo off actlou by congress.
A representative who is always wldo
awake whon on duty said: "Tho rail-
roaus ana oiner uostiio lniiuonccs are
putting feather beds on the track of the
canal bill, and trying to ditch tho train
so gontly that nobody will realizo what
has happened until it is over. They
aro piopoBing endless schomes for dig
ging tho ditch all purporting to bo
better than tho ono embraced in tho
Morgan bill. It looks as though thoy
might win out along that line, but con
grees may got impatient and tnko mat
ters out of tho bauds of tho lilibustors
and pass a mecsuro out of hand."
Sonatorsaro enjoying thomsolvosat
tho oxpenso of their now colloaguo,
Mr. Simon, of Oregon, who is roportod
to havo asked for what In regarded as
tho most important committee assign
ment in tho senate. A senator speak
ing of him said: "Simon; is a peach.
Hit beats anything wo havo had hero
for somo time. Just think of it,
before ho had been in tho sonnto 24
hours, ho llled an application for a po.
sition on tho committee on rules. Now
if ho bad asked for tho chairmanship
of appropriations, tinnnce or judiciary,
it wouldn't have been so remarkable.
But to think of his wanting to go on
tho rules committee befoto he had
been hero long enough lo know how to
make a motion to adjourn. Aldrich,
I understand, neatly had a fit when
Simon mado his wishes known lo hint.
Poor Aldrich, ho always was tender
hearted. It cost him a novum pang to
turn Simon down. It's a fact, I've got
his word for it. Simon hnsn't been
placed yet. When hu is I'm afraid
that ho will bo disappointed. I think
that ho has a fair prospect of gelling
on tho committee lo look after venti
lation in tlieintetlor department."
A war depaitiueut ulUuial, in his
anxiety ..to stiougly deny a repot t
about our soldiers at Manila being dis
contented, mado a statement that does
not exactly go with thu otllcial an
nouncement that the news from Dowoy
and Otis is all good. He said that far
from being discontented, nil thu volun
teers nt Manila, who had applied tor
dischargo had withdtawti their appli
cations as soon as they saw that there
was a prospect of somo fighting. If
there is n prospect of some lighting be
fore Dowoy and Otis, somebody must
have stretched their consaionces to sny
that all tho nows from thorn was good
A prospect for lighting is certainly not
to bo considered good nows,

La Grippe Successfully Treated.

ond attack of lagrippe this year," says
Mr, Jas. A. Jones, publisher of tho
Leader, Moxia, Texas. "In tho latter
caao I used Chamberlains Cough Rem
edy, and I think with considerable suc
cess, only being in bed a little over two
days against ten days for tho former
attack. Tho second attack I am satis
lied would havo been equally as bad as
tho first but for tho uso of this remedy
as I bad to go to bed in about six hours
after being 'struck' with it, while in the
lirst caso I was able to attend to busi

Stuff Which Almost Escaped Pub

With thu lengthening of tho days in
creased activity iu noticeable in all
lines of trade. Especially so iH this
noticeable among tho farmers. Tho
greater portion of this class have found
out that It pays lo bo ready to seed
when tho oppoitunity presents itself.
There aro somo howovor who ulways
watt until tho last minuto and then
kick bocauso tho season don't wait for
them. But speaking about kickers,
tboy don't all Uvo in tho rural districts.
Every town or city is blest, or rather
cursed, with a number of thorn. This
city ts not far behind tho average. It
contains people who can kick about
as loud about something that doesn't
concern them as anybody. Ono man
this weok was heard kicking bocauso
tho city was going to havo a telephono
exchange. Ilia main argument was
that tho town was too small to sup
port an exchange. Also that tho taxes
and other expeuscs would soon break
up tho company nt tho low prices at
which thoy aro rented, How very
thoughtful of him to look after the in
terests of the poor telephone company
in preference to tho community in
which ho lives. Anothor was heard to
kicu about tho proposed electrio ligot
plant. His argument was against the
increased taxes ho would havo to pay.
Tho individual referred, to owns no
real estate, acd very littlo personal
property, Wo coucludo theroforo that
ho is another of thoso boings sent into
this woild to show bis fellowmen the
pitfalls of life. His advlco is always
ready, profuse and discouraging and
administered in largo doses. Ho is tho
kind of a citizen that should bo shun
ned on every corner and encouraged
to leavo a community that believes in
enterprise and advancement. Among
uu advancing community liko our's
such people aro very littlo things. But
8peaKing of littlo things, about the
smallest thing that has como across
our gnzo lately is tho "obituary" of tho
former editor of tho Nation. Wo rofcr
to it as an obituary becauso tho writor
and signer is politically, morally and
socially dead. Tho obituary Bays "tho
utiatucfiS will bo carried on in nearly tho
same manner in tho futuro as in the
past." We think it would bo a good
plan for thu present editor to offer a
slight apology for the error iu this
clause which ho undoubtedly over
looktd. Thu word "not" inserted after
"business" and by leaving out tho
word "nearly" would havo chaugod tho
clause to rend more correctly. Ho
also says ho leaves many enemies and
friends. A careful couut of noses, wo
beliove, would rovcal tho former to bo
largely in tho majority. Tho onemies
ho bays ho will continuo to hato evou
to tho timo whon tho spiko-tniled gen
tleman presonts him with appear and
sets him nt bis old Inbor (presumably
raising h 1 for which ho was noted
during bis tcsidonco iu this city) ill

Insight iuto tho futuro and knows Just
whore bo is going, although bo said be
fore leaving town that bo was going to
Kansas. The prospect of avoiding a
meeting with this "fallen spirit" In his
chosen home in thu hereafter will no
doubt bo tho means of causing great
numbors to attend divino scryicos
regularly. Speaking of divino services
thoso rovival meotings at tho Method
