Ho reported from Iho commlttco the bill for the transfer of the wonthor bureau to the Agricultural department , nnd had the natlsfuctlon of booing nn nmondod meas ure become tv law. Secretary Husk pro nounced liis work nt the end of thla congress most onorjjotlc and valuable , nnd'norsonally congratulated him by letter upon his efforts on behalf of the department. 2. Our exports in cattle had boon hampered by retaliatory measures taken by Knplnnd to prevent export of live cattle into the kingdom on the ground of contagious plouro-pnoumonla. Bona'.or PiuldocTc Introduced and passed n bill to provide for olllclal certification of cattle frco from dlacaso and secured increased appropriations through por- ronnl olTor'H ' with appropriation com mittees bv which plflitro-pnoumonln was effectually stamped out in this country. Complaint , was then made by England that live e.nUlo were so injured In ocean transit as to bo made unill for consump tion when slaughtered. Senator Paddock promptly intioducud a bill to provide for the inspection of cattle vessels , passed it in the sotmto , and hud the satisfaction of seeing it become n. law. Ho introduced the first bill for meat Inspec tion , nnil inndo an exhaustive report upon the necessity of microscopic ox- ntninatlon of > nciit products nnd their official certlllcation as sound. The whole nystom now In such sncoesbful operation in western packing houses of tagping beef , mutton and pork Is largely the re sult of Sotiator Paddock's persistent labors. In consequence Franco , Ger many and England have thrown down the barriers to the American hog and ho enters oncu moro into consumption by the people of those nations. Senator I'atldock was a strong supporter of the reciprocity fcn'.uio of the McKinley bill , which the senate inserted in that meas ure after the house hud rejected It. Ho urged it among' his associates aild ad dressed the senate in its behalf , quoting from his speech of February 0 , 1879 , in ndvocaoy of the policy. 3. On February fi , 1890 , Senator Pad dock introduced a resolution ( ullingupon the commUteo on interstate commerce to report the potters of the Interstate Coin- morco commission to regulate excessive freight rales of agricultural products In the west. The matter was at once brought before Iho Inlerstulo Commerce commissioners who made a personal visit to Nebraska and finding the alle gations as recited in Senator Paddock's rcfiolulion sustained , mudo an order re ducing freight rates on food products. This practical legislation was the only national one In six years which had ru- Milted in reduced freight rules and it was due solely to Senator Paddock's initiative. } . It was in tills congress that Sen ator Paddock drafted ami introduced the first bill prohibiting the adultera tion of food producls which over re ceived Iho considoralion of our nalionul K-frliilnturc. The bill at once attracted the attention of the country and became the subject of widespread comment. Its lirat olTocl. was lo call out thousands of notices and articles proving conclusively the great e.xtcnt of the swindling of thin nature which WIIB in operation throughout the country. Medical socle- ties , alliances , grange org.mizutions and trade associations heartily endorsed the inovemcnt. Tho-.o whobo nefarious bus- inoas would have been destroyed by the measure promptly rallied in opposition nnd while at Ilrst not daring to openly attack the principle demanded vital amendment of the bill. During the first session Senator Pa-dock's commit tee hold twenty-six meetings to discuss and perfect the Paddock purp food bill , nnd finally completed it in its present form , in accordance with Senator Taddock's last draft. The Agri cultural department spurred its chemical division to an exhaustive invcstigatiulh and analysis of food pro ducts , the results fully verifying Sena tor Paddock's assertion that 40 per cent of all articles entering into coui' roon consumption were adulterated , Senator Paddock's report accompany' ing his bill nas been quoted and re- quoted so often by these engaged wit ! him in this gigantic fight against frnuc nnd deception that it is not necessary U live lioro any extracts to show the mo lives impelling the senator to his eru fade for the pi election of the stomuchi of the poor ami the pockiits of the pro duccrs. The best equipped and mos active lobby in Washington fought tin measure- lit every stugo and pro Touted its consideration in tin bonato.

Public l.itml. . An senator from the state whore the first homestead patent was issued. Sen ator Paddock naturally was familiar with the public land system. Much of his most useful work in the Bonato was done on the public lands committee. In this congress ho was particularly active. Ho made thirteen reports from the committee nnd attended every session. Ho reported the bill providing for appropriations for irrigation experiments , the bill creating the Broken How nnd the Alllnnco dis tricts , the bill adjusting salaries In the land olllco by which Judiro GrolT's salary was increased , the bill for the relief of ontrytnen on the Otoo and Missouri lands , the bill ( or the ealo o ( military reservations In Nebraska , for the crea tion of the Wyoming land district , to amend the timber culture act and to allow settler * to prove up before county olllclals. Seven of these bills became laws. I'cmlmm. Ills work in the coinmittoo on pen sions was indefatigable and enormous nnd represented a largo part of the six teen hours a day which the senator has boon in the habit of devoting to his work. Ho made no less than J03 re ports on private pension bills , among them a bill granting a pension to Mrs. Gonural Crook. Of those the remarka ble number of 147 became laws , many of the boncllciurics of whirih had boon vainly besieging the pension ollico for years for relief. The hundreds of letters of grateful acknowledgment from pen- Bionorn relieved from distress by his ef forts are ono of the most carefully preserved - served and cherished mementoes of Sen ator Paddock's senatorial term.Vhon | the labor of investigating llio enormous muss of papers nccompaning such claims is considered Iho industry and patience requisite to accomplish such results wilt bo apparent. Iliillnu DCpimhttKitiH , Sonalor Paddock was a member of the committee on Indian depredation claims , and was largely instrumental in the formulation nnd the passage of the measure which became a law provid ing for the udjudicutlot of th is class of claims , so linuorlant to many citizens of Nebraska. Owing to the absence of the chairman of the commitleo , Sonalor Moody of South Dakota , it foil to Senator Paddock's lot , as acting chair1 man , to tnko charge of the bill on the floor of the senate , and lo load the forces of its advocates. This ho did with great shrewdness and ability , passed the bill , and afterwards snt on the commitleo of conference , whoso report was finally adopted by the house. The passatro of the bill closed nearly eleven years of hard work on the part of Senator Paddock in advocacy of jus tice to settlers on this line. ( . ( net-ill Legislation. Senator Paddock took an active in terest in the formulation nnd passage of the measutes which became laws in the Fifty-first congress. A glance over the list will show that ho either introduced or reported a Inrgo number in this gal- ax , } ' , which forms the achievement of a congress republican in both branches. In every ono which came before the committees on pensions , npriculture , public lands and Indian depredations ho had a guiding and directing hand. His sfugglo for modifications in the tariff bill had much to do with Iho 'amendment of that measure on lines of western demands. Among the laws enacted - acted during this congress wora the following : The act providing for the monthly purchase of 4,500,000 ounces of silver and the issuance of treasury notes for the full value of the same , thus increas ing the volume of the currency nearly $00,000,000 per annum.

In this connection the fact nlsc may bo properly stated that the last congress passed and the president ap proved several hundred special acts granting pensions to ox-soldiors and the widows nnd children of ox-soldiers , where the required technical proofi were impossible to obtain/ The ant foi the relief of soldiers who served during the late war under assumed names.

The struggle which Senator Paddock with soyoral ether western senators made for tariff reduction in the Fifty-second congress attracted the attention of the country and thd approval of the repub lican press nnd republicans of the wost. It was maintained from the entrance of the tarilT bill into the sonalo to the vote upon accepting the cnnfcronco report , nnd was a steady protest against in creased duties'tint ! In favor of reductions where such scorned advisable. Senator Paddock's position on the tnrllT was in accordance with the Bontl- mont of his constituency , on the lines of republican profession and promise , nnd In full consistency with his life-long views upon the application of nn econo mic policy. As long ago as 1878 , in ad dressing the State Agricultural society at Lincoln , Senator Paddock snld lu speaking for reciprocity with the South American republics : " 1 myself was , aa many of you nro un doubtedly aware , educated In Iho polit ical school of Henry Clay , and , while I think that in some cases and under sotno circumstances protection through pro hibiting tariffs may answer a gooa pur pose , I am forced to bollovo that for an agricultural stale like ours It may bo on the whole an Injurious policy. " And referring again to an unstable financial policy nnd unnecessarily high Import dutios. ho added : "I think It Is susceptible of proof that this and pro tection through unnossarlly heavy im port , duties have cost this state since 1802 a larger aggregate sum than the entire crops of three years. The time has como when , without bias or preju dice , wo should advocate a radical change in our fiscal policy. " Senator Paddock has always bcon a protectionist , and avowed himself ns such. Ho has believed In and advo cated n protective tariff as distinguished from a tariff for revenue only. Hut ho has stundily insisted with Secretary Blalno that protection is a policy , not a principle , to bo increased or diminished nccoroing to the necessity for revenue and the equalizing of labor conditions. Ho has steadily insisted that the de mands of manufacturers should not betaken taken us the republican standard of pro tection , and that the wishes of Pennsyl vania and- Ohio should not determine the tariff which should bo imposed on products consuired by the west. Sena tor Paddock for nearly twenty years has been an advocate of tariff reduction. In this ho has represented the views of western republicans on the tariff ques tion , and ho did not falter in their ex pression In the Fifty-first congress when the tariff bill was under discussion. riflj-Socoinl ConercMS. The record of the present congress is still incomplete. The second and clos ing session , in which much legislation now , either In the committee stage or on the calendar , remains to bo disposed of , has yet to bo held. The work of Senator Paddock in this congress is therefore perforce princi pally in the stage of transition. Sum marized , it hab consisted of the intro duction of fifty-seven bills and resolu tions , the making of sevonty-sovon reports from committees on which ho has served , nnd the presentation of 18-3 petitions nnd papers. In addition ho has made remarks on forty-five subjects in the sonalo. Of 'the ' bills which ho introduced seventeen have already passed the Senate and four have already become laws , , t'vbiity-fivo ( are still in committee , nnd throe are on the senate calendar. An amendment , that making an apuroprlation of nearly half a million dollars for the payment of Indian depredation dation claims , was also fought through congress to the great relief of many worthy and long sutloring western set tlers. Also ho secured the enactment into law of an amendment providing funds for the investigation and settle ment of Indian depredation claims. He also passed through the senate a joint resolution extending the time for pay ment for lands on the Pawnee res ervation. Of the reports made by Senator Paddock thirty-eight were from the committee on pensions , twelve of which were on bills which have become laws , and eleven of which are wailing action by the house , lie made ole ven ronorts from the agricul tural committee , two of which were on bills which have become laws. Ho also roporiod fifteen measures from the pub lic lands committee , seven of which passed the somite. Those with two re ports from the committee on Indian alTuira , seven from the committee on contingent expenses and two from con ference committees , make up Senator Paddock's record of hard work on com mittees during the first session of the present congress. Senator Paddock introduced nnd passed through the senate a number of measures of interest , among thorn his "Pure food bill , " for which ho had to struggle at every stage from the intro duction to its passage ; the Hastings > public building bill ; the bill to provide [ for the disposal of Fort HartsutY , 5 Sheridan and Fort MePhorson , military reservations in Nebraska ; an amond- f | ment providing funds to enable the secretary of agriculture to continue investigations concerning the feasi 1 bility of extending the demands of for eign markets for agricultural products of the United Slates ; an amendment 1 providing funds for the continuance of 1'i 1o timber tests under the direction of 'i the secretary of agriculture , an amend ment increasing the limit of cost of the n Beatrice public building to $05,000 ; the bill for a public building ; at Salt Lake n City ; bills for the relief of Frank Rather d and Wesley Montgomery ; the bill for tiio adjustment of the Otoo reservation land sales ; the bill lor a public building at Grand Island ; a bill to readjust the t salaries of land otllcors ; to pension Gran- o vlllo Turner ; to provide for the survey 0 and transfer of tho.Fort Randall reser vation to the stato.'of Nebraska ; for the ) , relief of Orson Putnam ; granting a pen so sion to Marion O : Gurney , and granting sd an increase of * pension to George W. d Clark. ) f Senator Padd.pck's participation in ' thb debates oftlio senate during the I'll past session covered , a wldo variety of ll subjects of general as well as of special it interest to the wast. Indian depredation 0 tion claims and the demand for their prompt payment , the irrigation of arid IS lands , the necessity for forestry laws , 8y pensions for disabled soldiers , an up- 8s peal for the passage of the anti-option ; s law , silver coinage , the general condi is tion of agriculture , the Hustings and .03f Grand Island public buildings , the Oloc 3f and Pawnee reservations , Missouri It river improvements , Nebraska mllitar.v iin reservation lands , food adulteration in postollico buildings for the 'smalloi isU cities and towns , and the Grand Armj U encampment , were a few of the subject ! 11y upon wiiloh his voice was hoard. i- iJS Senator Paddock's moatatriklncr char n- acteristlo is his energy.

Noli calls during his oflieinl career will find him present as often if not oftener than any of his colleagues. And when record ed as "absent" under the rules of the senate , his name will bo found with but few exceptions among these announcing1 themselves as "paired , " and therefore precluded from voting. On all the great issues which pre sented themselves during his two terms of olllco Senator Paddock placed him self on record , and will bo found re corded. He has never been found among Iho dodgers and absentees when debata ble questions came un for final determin ation. On most such issues lie lias spoken on the lloor of the t > onnlo , and on many which others avoided ho has freely given his opinions lo tfio press. No stronger proof of his senatorial on- eriry can bo found than in the numerous written reports he has prepared Irom the comuiitlees of public liuuls , pensions and agriculluro , reports which number nearly 400 many requiring long prep aration and the arduous labor of digest ing thousands of papers and consulting innumerable authorities. Caring noth ing for social functions , Senalor Pad dock has porsislcd in carrying his legis lative work with him homo lo his lodg ings and in extending1 his day's labor far Inlo the night , early discovering that in no other way was it possible for him to dispose of his work day by day accord ing to his invariable rule , to keep up with the mass of correspondence , and lo prepare himselt for his work on Iho iloor of the sonato. Ilia success in expediting business before the departments was < luo to close attention to every case in which a Ne braska constituent was interested and in the indefatigable onorgj with which ho presented it to the various govern ment ollicials. Hundreds of seniors on the public lands in Nebraska and many more worthy old soluiors and their widows owe the prompt adjudication of their cases to tlia fact tluil Senalor Paddock would not take "No" tor an answer while urging their claims in the land and pension oillces. Senator Paddock never posed as a professional reformer , seeking to make capital for himself by assailing the motives of those1 of hU .colleagues who ventured tc disagree with him. Differing often from his associates , his courtesy in debate bate was noticeable and initurullj brought reciprocal courtesy in exchange. His relations with the 'sonato have always boon of the most friendly nature and the existence of this feeling hat boon very often of great value when r single objection would have proven lei' Iho consideration of some moiihuro o interest to the btalc. The same may hi Buid of the chlof executive and holds o deparlmonls with whom Iho bonalor ha : always boon on terms of kindlj intimacy , which have smoothed the waj for rapid and olVoolivo work. Senator Paddock's success in dispos ing ol publiu business is largely duo tc methodical turn of mind whiul causes him lo slid ; lo every Horn Ir turn until It is out of the way and ti take up each day's work and finish i so far as possible before the day closes lie has made it n rule to aeknowlodgi on the .day of receipt every lotto which came inlo ills hnndx , and to kuoi bolh originals and nnswnr indexed am accessible for prompt reference in uan < of future inquiries.

Tills dll forenco ho has of course had to meet on of his own moans. Sonulor Paddoulc is essentially a dc mqstic man and has missed greatlj while at Washington , hisplcnr > nnt lioin at Licatrlco , for which rented i coins a the national capital have proved a pee substitute. Continued IllncbS in hi fatuity r/rovontod Iho senator from or toi-tninlng or from accepting invitation to ontortainiiiontHin Washington durin the greater part of his sonalorlal son Ico.

Senator Paddock's theory of the double responsibility of a representative in congress is that his first duty is to his constituents and his second to homo ono olso's constiluency. This may not bo ' broud statesmanship , but it is 'business. An examination of his senatorial record will show it filled with defenses of his htato and its people , with appeals for recognilion of their demands for legisla tion particularly allocling their in- loresls and with speeches and voles made and cast with a view of increasing the material prosperity of Nob-nska. Ho has stead fastly endeavored to Iccop his fingers on the pulse of his people and to honestly voice their wishes. The nssorlion can bo made with a confidence borne out by an analysis of the Congressional Record that no state has received in Iho senate more careful watchfulness in respect to all its intoresls than has the stale of Nebraska during Senalor Paddock's in- cutnboncy of ollico. Sonalor Paddock has boon grcally aided in his work by several personal characteristics , namely , his evenness of temper , his distaslo for display , his ac cessibility and his courtesy of manner. As ono of his colleagues once said of him , "Senatorial dignity does not dis turb his sleep. " At the btuno time ho is neither llippant nor eccentric. Helms made no ollcnsivo displays ol oratorical gymnastics for the benefit , of the galleries - lories or endeavored to gain iiotoriely oy olTensivo attacks on these who hon estly differed from him. Ilo has bcon willing in tocislativo mailers to yield as well as to seek acquiescence from olhors and has gained in consequence. Wilh no pretentious to eloquence , Senator Paddock is an carnnsl and olleolivo speaker , largely so because ho has always had something to say when ho rose lo address the honr.to. HU re marks 'n ' debate have iibually been short but 10 the point. His more ambitious ollorts have never boon wenrjsomo. While ho has spoken on many topics , ho lias not felt il his duty to consume Iho time of Iho senate merely to got his name into the Record or secure an ephemeral notice in the public press. Ho has had no ambilion to destroy his inlhicnco in Iho senalo by becoming known as a "wind bag , " ovou if by to doing ho could gain a passing notoriety. And yet on all questions o ( national importance alTocling the west Sonalor Paddock lists spoken and spoken well and spoken straight to the point , and no senator has boon loft in doubt , aa to Iho reasons for his vote when given. Fidelity lo duty , unwearied devotion lo Iho trust committed to his charge. loyalty lo his htiilo and Us people , and intelligent devotion to republican prin ciples arc the salient characteristics of Sonalor Paddock's sonalorial caroor. No buipioion ff external influences directing his action attaches lo his rec ord. Ills sUirth are free from Intima- UOIIH of ulterior motives in position * : taken , avoided or opposed. In hit t-pueeh upon the McKlnloy bill ho boldlv declined that every dollar ho hod in the world was Invested In Nebraska , and he added that ho did not nor would ho per mit hinihclf to own a stock or bom which might bo allectod by logiblatior in which ho might bo called upon U narllcipilo. Hu lias not , therefore been impelled lo nltack corporations foi the solo purpoio of depressing thnii stocks In Iho market or lo dufond liion lo bolbtor up nricos of hlb own holding No corporation can nccubo him of black mail any moro than any const Huont cai charge him with having wockod foi corpurato inlurobts. Senator P.iddook , whatever his futtin may bo , can confidently I.idttlgo in tin roll'cotlon that during liltf public i-arco ho bun given honest , faithful and tin sparing net-vice ; Unit lie has put hi abilities to thnir best IIBO foe his stall and his section , and ih.it ho will loavi Wahhlngton at least with the esteem c his associated and tltu admiration c these who have witnessed his endeavor lo bo an able , enorgollc and cotuoior liously useful representative of the pet plo of the wudt , PKltitY S JlKATH.
