remote corner of tho hall, arose dra
matically from a seat In the middlo

Tho conference report on the river

relating to tho Santa Monica and San

tho basis of a very bitter attack on
the bill by Messrs. Hepburn, Repub

opposed this measure because It con
tained extravagant appropriations not
warranted by tho condition of the

applause. "Wo are all In on it," he
added sarcastically, amid laughter.

offered to yield him fifteen minutes
more if hu would point out n single
item m tho bill that was not justified
by the engineer reports. (Loud ap
plause.) The challenge brought Mr.
Hepburn, Republican, to his feet.with
a scathing speech ngainst thu bill.
This bill, said he, had been passed
by a brutal majority without debate,
and he mado the assertion that not a
section of tho bill had ever been read
In the Hoife. Not in the history of

"Shame, shame," he cried. "Shame
upon such falso pretense. Why did
you foico the bill through in forty
minutes if you were not too cowardly
to face investigation?" Mr. Hepburn,
continuing sharply, criticised the

In view of the histories of nomc for
mer presidents nnd numerous candi
dates the following copied from tho
Iowa patent office business circular
seems to be apropos.
HONOUA1II.K AND I.AS1IKO TAME.
To reach and occupy the position of
president of tho United States isgen
erally regarded as the acme of Ameri
can honor and fame. Hut tho position
alone does not assure true honor of
Insting fame. If a man who attains
that position has a taint upon him tho
office of president can not lemovc it.
If he is corrupt, incompetent or un
faithful his prominent position serves
to make his disgrace. "Jimmy" Ru
chnnan and "Andy" Johnson can bo
named as examples of the truth of our
words. The chances of becoming"
president is as one to many millions,
very small. Tho chances of getting"
corrupt and disgraced in aspiring to.
the presidency seems to bo in the re
verse order, very large. Wo therefore
w ish to direct American youths to a
broader and safer road to true honor
and lasting fame. The rapid incrcaso
of our population demands thousands
of new inventions for tho necessities of
our multiplying millions.
To be the author of a machino that
will give aid, comfort and deliirht to
tho present and coming generations
may bo a nobler triumph than to win
a presidental race. It is a hope, too
that many may realize. The ambition
of the hutnblc'mechanic that looks for
honor and fame by seeking to give tho
world a benefaction in the shape of an
invention, is fnr nbovo tho "infatua
tion" which ruins "presidential candi
dates." The names of American in
ventors and public benefactors will bo
revered when the names of some of"
our presidents and would-be presi
dents will be forgotten, or only re
membered with indifference, regret or
contempt. Valuable information about obtain
