The president has vetoed the invalid

The New Orleans Picayune says of

an age of moral cowardice ; he was a

years , and could scarcely have fallen
short of the presidency had he lived

this , nothing so true , was said in the
senate on Wednesday in honor of the
"When a man dies in this busy ,
bustling western world he is soon for

of our feverish existence. We cannot
take time to grieve over the dead. If
we stop for anything but a careless un
tiring struggle with the world , we get
run over and trampled upon. No time
for , sadness , little time for common
sympathy , and so on we go , struggling
striving as best we can in the restless
human current that moves surely and
swiftly to the quiet and peace , the rest
ful oblivion to which we have consign
ed our forgotten friends. "
Ex-Judge Dillon , general counsel

"I have yours of the 28th inclosing
copy of a letter addressed by you un

R. Callaway , general manager of the
Union Pacific Railway Company in
which you state that sections 2 and 23
of the late Inter-State Commerce act
seem to prohibit the giving of free
passes to persons not connected with
the service of the company or traveling
upon business in which it has no inter
est You ask me whether this view is
correct. Obviously many difficult and
delicate questions will arise as to what
is an undue and reasonable preference ,
advantage , or discrimination within the
provisions of the act ; but taking the
scope of the act , and reading sections
1 , 3 , and 22 together , my opinion is
that railroad companies which are sub
ject to the provisions of the act are
prohibited from issuing complimentary
passes for any species of free travel not
disconnected with inter-state communi
cation or commerce. Certainly , until
it is judicially decided otherwise , your
conclusion not to issue such passes is
the one dictated by prudence. "

that it lias no equal on earth for coughs and
colds. McMillen & Weeks have secured the

give satisfaction. ,
