" Burden Taken From Champ. Now , having elected a Democratic bouse , thus removing Undo .Too from the face of the political map and elim inating him ns an issue , his foes will lake out the remainder of their wrath Jm his unfortunate olllce. This IH harden on Champ Clark , who , though lie has tought Cannon on many congressional Jields , Is thus mndo to suffer for the Bins of his enemy. Perhaps Clark is fclafl to bo rid of the appointment of those troublesome commltfecH , but whether he Is or not he cannot help himself. The ways and means com mittee 1ms the Job , and with tlmt transfer of power opens a m > w era In the history of the house of representa tives. Legislation is made by the standing Committees. It Is all very well to talk about taking a bill away from a com- jiiUteo and passing it regardless , but it Is seldom done. It sounds well in theory , but does not work In practice. The power that appoints the standing committees Is the power that rules the tiou o. Thus the ways and means com mittee becomes the most Important leg islative group In the government. It names the committee on rules , other wise the house machine. It selects the appropriations committee , having chareo of $1.000.000,000 onuunl expend- Iture. It chooses the rhcrs and liar bors and public buildings committees which preside over the "pork barrel. " It apitolnts the JudUlary. mnal. mill tnry , Ubor , agriculture and all the oth er commlitccs' which control the laws tor the north. It Is announced tlmt hearings on the tariff will be held during the spring and early summer and that the rules committee will bo chosen nt once , so that it may devise the regulations for the next house. As for the other stand ing committees , they will go over till fall. If tin extra session should be called this program would bo material ly modified. In that event the Immor tal fourteen would have to go to It at once. The Democratic Members.

Alleged humorists may talk o Easter bonnets and snowballs , sprint onions and sleigh bells , cowslips am Iclclea , but with Dame Fashion It Ii spring simply Hpring. with all that I means of newness of life , fresh hopes of invlgoratlon and exhilaration. In the world of dress , wo are look Ing ahead and all Is consistent.V < revel In spring fabrics and sprlii ! trimmings , spring bonnets , sans tin snowbalrt and cowslips for the bon nets , sana glacial appendages. Evoi the spring wraps are light and frci from the suggestion of comfort assc elated with the more substantla cloths and velvets of winter. Yet , however , one must now oml velvet from the list of spring mate rials. It has graduated Into the roaln of perennially popular fabrics. Ii winter It Is a costume fabric , In sprini and summer an ultra-chic trimming Even the lingerie frock Is to have it : embellishing bands of velvet rlbhoi this year , A word about wraps before passim on to the lighter things. These nr enveloping and lovely , designed to prc tect the frock , without producing un due warmth. They are made of beav ; satins and gray seems to be taking Ui' ' lead from old rose , which has been Ii such high favor for the past few sen sons. There are also delicious shade of blue , notably gentian. Alice Bin gives way to Helen Pink and one cai easily guess who the charming youni woman Is who Inspired color expert not only with the name but with tin latest tone. Miss Taft was partial to pink Jus as Miss Uoosovolt was to blue , and s a color has been concocted for her dc loctatlon and honored with her name A wrap which will bo liked for Its sin : plicity of arrangement , although I may be a piece do resistance for th home dressmaker , Is developed Ii Helen pink satin. The robe Is cut ii one piece , falling to the bottom of th skirt. It is wound over to the side where it fastens Invisible and is trlir med only with a big , floppy rovei which Is bound with pull braid Ii black , with a tassel of black and plnli The sleeves are rather full , with fltte cuffs stitched around the edges wit black silk braid. The satin tailor made is making fal promises for the spring. The ver smnrt models which have drifted int their departments as advance types c the coming style are being adoptc with avidity. Black , it looks now , wll be well in the lead and there Is som evidence that brown will also bo I good favor. In the new suits one lind some Interesting features. The Eto Jacket has arrived , for instance , force in the hothouse of the forehanded tal or who has nn eye on those fortunat pations who tilt southward as soon a the fun of the holidays has lost a hi of its sparkle. The Eton jacket of the present Is smart little affair , as it is wont to b < whatever style it lends itself to. A present It Is figuring In kimono guise trimmed with bands of satin or fane braid , which define the Eton offec then having the front cut low almos to the proportions of a Dutch neck- aud bound with rovers of satin or ve vet. Sometimes almost always- there Is a close-llttlng girdle of th trimming that outlines the Eton. A model after this idea is in woo brown satin , the skirt being triniine with a hip yoke , stitched down closel upon the foundation. A band of th braid continues down the front of th skirt , running slantwise to the knei at one side , then the front panel I sharply cut off In another slant t simulate a tunic. There seems to be no possibl chance that the kimono sleeve will b disturbed In the least by the comln in of another season's styles. It vogue at the moment is too Ilrmly c , tablished to be shaken suddenl ; Everything , from the cheap littl waists to the smartest and rlchcf gowns , has it. And the fact that it i universally used seems not to affe < its standing. When the public likes fashion so well that It clings to It I spite of changes of the season , it take sonio'tinio to uproot it. Fashion mal ers are not the iron-handed tyrant that they would like to be. Last year a touch of color crept int many of the blouses and this year th color note Is more dominantly soum ed with , it must be admitted , attrai live results , although the very pnn tlcal woman murmurs ominous fen bodlngs about laundry problems an insists upon buying all white blouse In spite of the temptation held out b the others. It is unquestionably tru that color in a line blouse means in cessity for extraordinary care In lam derlng If the blouse Is to keep It freshness ; but many of the new moi els aie simple In line and are of iln marquisette or the imported cotto voile so that laundry problems othe than that of color are reduced to minimum. Tucks are creeping into the prom nent decorative schemes of the no blouse models , sharing laver with 11 tie yokes and deep fitted cuffs fc sleeves that show a decided fullne ? above the elbows. The fancy for n tlier vivid and audacious color comb nations which has developed durin the winter Is echoed In some of tli new blouses , bits of embroidery I strong Russian Oriental tones boln intioduced upon the white material Skirts continue to bo of Interest hi cause of their varied treatment by di feront leaders of fashion. Strnlgl tunic effects are used in many of th soft net and marquisette models , tli tunic often separating In front tosho' thf petticoat , which is of the snm material trimmed with lace , Inaertloi or embtoldory.
