Editor Choif. In lust woi'k's Nat in'
notice n letter from II. L. Hopkins
.taking a number of tu-tons and to
questing answers to them. No 1. Wit
not House loll No. mil tint only gout-ial
freight rate bill Inttoduced and acted
on in tho House The answer wn,
that it was not, thai II It No. 2:)5
known ns the OI1N bill was a general
bill, that it, reduced t ates on cattle, hogs
and sheep, on which thu rate wns to be
t educed to HO per cent of the into
published on December 1st, 1891). This
would be n roiiuutlon of 10 per cent
while the other bill I educed all rates an
average of 15 per cent. Tho Nation
editor evidently forgot nbout horses,
mules and etc. Then he goes on to say
that tho maximum rates on nil other
clashes of freight should not exceed the
rates of December ISM, thus leaving
them as they weie with a good loop
hole to raise rates, by chatiglng from
one class to tho next class higiier. 11. 11
No. 213 took oil' 15 per cent and no
date, thotefore it was preferable.
(jues. No. 3. Was ll not thu votes of
L. (J. Pelsigor and llvo order r'usionist.s
that prevented it from general lile and

that L. C. Pcisigcr and other Fusionists
voted for the Ollis bill in proferonc to,
II. It.No'Jtn. both bills reduced rates,
Hut does not say and dare not say that
11. U No. 213 did iut reduce rates, all
along thu line, from live to teu par cent
more than tho Ollls bill. He says, "A
committoo appointed by thu fusion
caucus of tho house uuamiously recom
mended that that the Ollis bill bo pass
ed in preference to 11. 11. No 243. Mr.
Pelsigor and others voted according to
tho decision of the caucus." Thon how
did it happen that Mr. Oliis and 33
other fusionists out of a total of 47
voted for this general measure No. 213;
why did not they stand by tho decision
of tho caucus. It is very evident thoro
was no caucus. Mr. Ollis says in his
letter to Mr. Peisigcr, two weeks ngo,
that "thcro were two classes of men,
(quite .evident) that ono class was
anxious to voto so as to mako a record
for themselves, that then thoy would
go and do work to kill it, the other
class was trying to to do somothing for
tho peoplo," ho also says that bouse roll
No 243, known as tho Sprcchor bill was
dead for two weeks boforo it was final
ly disposed of. Toll us how it was that
when tho voto was taken on this "dead"
bill that Mr. Ollis and 33 other fusion
ists voted for it, while Mr. Peisiger
voted ngainst this Sprcchor bill, No 243,
according to Mr Ollis own lotter and
the bouso journal, there was ono in
each class; tell us which is which pleaso
or can you dodgo this also. Hero is
how Representative Murray of Thurs
ton county, explained his voto on,
house roll 243. "Tho fusion parties in
this stato havo promised tho peoplo a
reduction in railway freight rates and
as this tho only bill before tho house,
covering tliis subject generally; I be
lieve It should bo given consideration;
I vote, aye.
It is evident all through that our
legislative contingent favored tho rail
ways and not their constituents.

A near relation of the lute Rarou
Munchausen on the maternal side,
lineally descended from Ananias and
Suppblra, wus telling a party of friends
about treeing a bull buffalo lu one of
tho great trees of California.
"Thnt story lacks likelihood," re

thing, like so many other men. "Tho
buffalo belongs to the ruminnnt fam

walks on hoofs. It hns no claws at all

"As a general proposition you are
right," said the story teller, with per
fectly unrtillled mien, "but this case

the buffalo with four of the most
vicious dogs that I over knew. Ono

Where Women Mar Not Pray.
There is a practically universal pro
hibition ngainst women praying in Mo
hammedan countries. They aro not
admltfted beyond the thresholds of tho
mosques; but on tho other hand, tho
Koran distinctly encourages women to
pray In private. Some Hindoo congre
gations deny tho privilege of prayer to
their women altogether. Among the
Ainu, a race supposed to bo the abo
rigines of Japan, women nre not per
mitted to pray or offer sacrifice except
In rare cases as the deputies of their
husbands. The reason for this prac
tice is that tho Ainu women aro not
supposed to possess souls, and there
fore their prayers would be quite un
availing. Among tho natives of Mad
agascar women arc permitted to pray,
but only to the powers of evil, a kind
of Intercessory prayer. Only men are
permitted to address prayers directly
to the Supreme Doing.
Doctors tell us in these days of gem

of tho patient. Somo men and women (
