. It is more than unlikely yea it
is absurd to assume that any sane
man could be found who would
willingly risk his own life in the
Mexican war now raging , who ,
having no interests of his own , but
simply to protect the investments
of some pompous millionaire while
at the same time the said "biz
bug" is basking in the sunshine of
safety , luxury and ease in his
gorgeously furnished'palace thous
ands of miles from the bloody bat

Did the ass-tute government

tLat the pretense of "army ma
neuvers" would be accepted by
the people as the real purpose of
massing the army and naval forces
in break-neck haste on the Texas
border ? It is too plain that the
move was dictated by the k"inter
ests" the "money power" in
whose interest it was made and
which power is daily becoming
more arrogant and domineering

looks omnious and threatening.
There is-a cause for it of course.
The "interests" are in danger ,
and human blood must ba rnadii to

defend them. It is the "inter
ests" of the "poor"you know , as
it always has been , arid the "rich3-
man's blood must be poured out
freely to protect the said "inter
ests , " otherwise they would go

wliatjto do with them is now the

What is called "American in-

ed in Mexico at the present time ,
but the American people at large ,
. properly considered , have'no in
terest in the said "interests. "
They are purely individual the

ertyless class fight and kill each

( Special Correspondent )
That the doorkeeper of the house
of representatives has his thirteen
-year old daughter on ihe payroll as
"clerk to the doorkeeper" at a salary
of § 1200 a year , witli an extra
: month's pay , was one of the many
| unique discoveries made by Con
gressman A. Mitchell Palmer of
the Ways and Means committee
while investigating useless positions
on the house payroll.
Although the clerk's .document
room and all the offices therein was
abolished by statute in 1895 , the
salaries aggregating § 6,260 went
right on. The republican machine
needed tlie patronage , and why be
discouraged by a little thing like a
i statute !
Six useless but expensive house
committees will be abolished , saving
§ 12,000 a year.
| A saving of § 3,000 a year will be
, effected through dispensing with
the ervice of two attendants to the
old library spsice. These positions
' were created when tlie library was
i in the capitol. The library was removed -
! moved many years ago. Since then
the two attendants have had noth
ing to attend to but blank space.
It was an easy job.
J Two night watchmen charged to
I the folding room will be dropped.
Seventy-four policemen are on duty
at the capitol and unless the two
stalwart republican night watch
men watched the police , it is diffi
cult to understand how they put in
their time.
Here is another illustration of
wastefulness in running the govern
ment : Before the telephone .was
invented a telegraph wire was con
structed between ths capitol and
war department for quick communi
cation. Since the telephone has
come into existence it. has been
used exclusively. But the jobs of
i the two telegraphers remained. At
i last they are to be abolished , saving
§ 2,800 annually.
| "During tne Spanish war , " says
Mr Palmer , "somebody's triend told
somebody's cousin that" * somebody's
auut had heard someone say that a
plot was on foot to djnamite the
capitol. Thirty-eight extra police
men were added. They have re-
i mainecl ever since. "
The Palmer committee believes
the danger is now over , and will
have thirty-four policemen and one
lieutenant given a permanent leave
of absence , saving § 39,000 annually.
Betreuchrnent in the house alone
sums up as follows :
Saving under speaker § 2B20 00
Saving under clerk 3997000
Saving under sergeant
at arms " 47050 00
Saving under doorkeeper 31340 00
Saving through abolishing
extra month's pay 50000 00
Saving through abolishing
six useless committes 12000 00
Saving through abolishing
speaker's automobile 6000 00
Total annual saving § 188680 00
"Economy in public expense ,
that labor may be lightly burdened , "
has but just begun in Washington.
One department after another will
be taken up by the democrats , and
whenever they have the power , they
will abolish useless offices and sub
stitute a business administration
for was'efulness and extravagance.
An Unreported Speech.
Speaker Champ Clark made an
important speech recently that has
not as yet been printed in any news
paper. It was made in caucus , at
which no newspaper men were
present. It waF a private , heart-to-
heait talk between Clark and his
democratic party followers. Here is j
what Mr. Clark said in part , not for
the public , but for the ears of the
democratic members of congress :
"I congratulate Mr. Palmer and
his associates upon their retrench-1
tnent program. I congratulate them
ivith all my heart and strengthr
there is one way to economize , and
; hat is for each man of us to begin
jconomizing at home. To start .the ,
jail rolling I propose to do a little
jcononiizing on mown hook. I
im going f.o cut down my office

automobile. If I can not legally
get rid of it , I will run it into the
Potomac. The republicans will say
it is cheeseparing and peanut poli
tics , but the people have some
sens- ? , and thsy will know that if we
begin by giving up our own little
grafts that we will then be morally
fortified to go after the bigger ones.
And I don't care what the republi
cans say , I will co-operate with any
man in this house who can find a
place of sensible economy. I don't
care whether it is a little economy
or a big economy that is proposed ,
I will work with any member to
bring it about if it is a sensible
one. "
A Republican View.
"The legislative program outlined
by Speaker Clark will meet with
public approval. It is progressive
and only radical to those who hold
that legislation in the interest of
the general -public is radical and
should be opposed " Philadelphia
North American ( rep. ) .
Democrats Keep Promises.
The Maine legislature , democratic
in both branches , has just adjourn
ed , after a session lasting thirteen
\\eeks , during which every pledge
that had been made by the demo
crats in last fall's campaign was
substantially kept.
Crisis for Republican Progressives.
The extra sessioruof congress of
fers the progressive republicans of
the senate an apportunity to make
the mistake of their political lives.
If they oppose Canadian reciprocity
ifc will surely revise their popularity
downward. This is particularly
true as a nation-wide proposition.
The progressives can not now op
pose reciprocity on the ground that
it does not revise , the tariff down
ward on things the farmer must
buy , because bills will accompany
the reciprocity measure which will
revise the tariff downward on manu
factured articles.

Rats Run Ramcant , Spreading Terror
Over the British Isfcs.
London , April 11. Menaces to the
safety of England continue to multi
ply. The German p-jril is always pres-
3nt ; the free trade threat against the
integrity of the empire is an old
'riend : socialist spoliation of tan clouds
.he future , and recently the country
ms heard much about the white bread
The latest source of perturbation is
; he discovery in England that "the
jalance of nature has besn upset , " and
: hat innumerable evils are expected
o flow from this dislocation. So many
f the natural enemies of rats have
jeen destroyed that the long-tailed ter-
ors are rampant in every direction
md the Associated Chambers of Com-
nerce are advancing in a solid pha-
anx against the rodents.
"Incredible though it seems , " says
ecretary Matthews of this organiza-
ion , "the country suffers from rats to
he extent of $75,000,000 annually ;
Jor is the plague of rates the only
ign of the disturbed balance of na-
ure. The buard of agriculture has
rdered a general attack on the mi-
rant pigeons , which are descending
y hundreds -and destroying whole
fever fields in various parts of En-
md. Rooks , larks and starlings , some
