Mr. Memminger Is the author of another
bill of some importance. It- provides for
a reduction In the maximum passenger rate
on railroads In this state from I to 2
cents, leaving the half rate age limit an
at present, 10 years. (
Amend lloienne Dili.
The revenue bill will be reported to the
house In the morning. It has been amended
In many places by the house commltteo.
Among the Important amendments are the
following: To asseBS life Insurance com
panies on 1 per cent of their gross re
ceipts. This was done after a bard fight
by the Insurance lobby. Fire insurance
companies when assessed locally will be as
sessed less the reinsurance. County as
sessors shall appoint deputies without the
confirmation' of county boards. Telephone
companies to be assessed on gross receipts
In excess of $12 per Instrument. Personal
property to be assessed where owner re
sides except where there are local estab
lishments. Tonight Chancellor Andrews was before
the finance committee and asked for $704,
000 appropriation for the university. He
asked this besides the $100,000 for the ex
The Douglas delegation held a meeting
and discussed charter amendments, but de
cided on nothing definite.
It Is of Interest to note that Mlkesell and
Shipley, the two fuslonlst members In the
house who Voted against H. K. 330, the bill
to compel railroads to psy city taxes, are
members of the bouse revenue committee,
and that this committee has given it out
already that it will make or recommend no
changes in the revenue bill, now In Its
custody, that will. In any way, tend to In
crease railroad taes or even disturb the
equilibrium of the present glaring Inequali
ties which exist In the matter of railroad
taxes. These are two of the four fusion
lata who did not vote for H. R. 330. They
proved intractable when their party friends
strove to get them In line on this measure.
Belden of Richardson Introduced In the
bouse another bill cutting oft the tat feet
of the clerk- of the supreme- court. It goes
farther than the other measure and fixes
the salary for the reporter,:. clerk and li
brarian of the supremo court, who is the
same Individual, at $1,500 a year for all
ervicea rendered. It aliowa the clerk two
assistants, one of whom shall be a stenog
rapher, and receive not more than $1,200
and three additional clorks at $600 each a
year. - Mr. Belden said It la the same bill
he introduced two yeara ago. He thinks
that as the session Is so near an end there
will be little chance of the bill's passage.
Members of the legislature "have arisen
in their manhood and might" to declare
that they will not longer tolerate the hard
ship of having to "wade .through slaughter
to a throne to shut the gates of mercy ou
mankind," by glvlrg unequivocal Indorse
ment to the resolution pending before the
house providing for the elevation of all the
pavements leading to the state capltol
building. These pavements ere half a foot
below the level of the capltol grounds, and
are streams of water and slush after a
heavy snow or rain. They are nothing but
drainage canals, and people going to the
capital are frequently obliged to wade in
water up to their shoe tops or take to the
banks and plough through mud. The roo
lutlon'aeya these walks shall be elevated
two Inches above the common level.

duced a bill which may be expected to bring
to the capltol an army of pawnbrokers. It
provides that an affidavit shall be made out
between the loaner and loanee of the money
actually loaned and received and that no
note ehall be collectable unless such affida
vit has been made out. The purpose of the
bill Is to put an end to the practice of
charging extortionate rates of interest that
has been common among aome classes of
pawnbrokers. The usual custom has been
to make the note out for the amount loaned
and give to the loanee the amount of the
note less the Interest for the first period.
There' Is at present a 10 per cent rate of
Interest law, but tbs law Is evaded, it is
held, by this other method.

THE TRUTH ABOUT BREAD.
From London "Chic."
In a recent Issue of Chic, one of the big
Illustrated weeklies for which London Is
famous, a writer on scientific foods says:
"There was never coined a more delusive
phrase then 'Bread the staff of life,' be
cause bread la almost the worst of all foods
unless the eater knows all about lis pro
perties. It Is poison to the man in a
Here follows a long argument.
" 'Why not,' asked the dietie experts, 'do
for the bread and olhef cereal foods what
the mastication does so that those
whose digestions arc enfeebled may be
fully nourished, that is, derive every grain
of nutriment possible from the food and
avoid the discomforts of indigestion, the
paina after eating, flatulence, acidity,
heartburn and the hosts of evils Indicating
faulty digestion f Why not prepare a food
so perfectly that If it be eaten in a hurry,
or bolted, It will be as readily digested as
It chewed five minutes?
"To convert trie starch In cereals Into
the form of Grape Sugar which is most
agreeable to the stomach and which can be
immediately taken up by the system as
nourishment is what has been done in
Orape-Nuts which, for the reason I have
glveu is a far more healthful and
nourishing food than the best porridge or
bread and can be eaten with advantage by
persona, with the most delicate stomachs.
"This. . food discovery comes from
America, but widespread recognition ot its
valuable properties is, to my thinking,
much hampered by a name which Is mean
ingless, even to the chemist or dletist
I must confess to not understanding the
meaning of 'Grape-Nuts' when I first saw
It, but an .examination of this food dis
covery reveals It as one of the most Im
portant dietetic advances ever made."

WASHINGTON, March 4 The session of

alone by the official proceedings on the
floor of the chamber Incident to the last
day of a congress, but by many occurrences
which were purely social In their character,
owing to the fact that the day marked tho

candidates of the opposing party. Two
other senators, Peboe of Kentucky anil
Prltrhanl of North Carolina, are southern
republicans, and both are succeeded by
The remaining two republicans are Sena

Senators Harris of Kansas, Turner of Wash

as populists and are succeeded by repub

still classed as such, has acted Inde

and he has not during his entire thirty
years' rervlce Introduced to exceed half
a dozen bills, yet his Influence In shaping
legislation has been exceeded by that ot
few senators and. his great ability has
been recognized from the beginning of his
national career. ,
With a few exceptions during his term
the personnel of the serrate has changed
many times over. When Mr. Jones en
tered the body Simon Cameron and Hanni
bal Hamlin were still prominent charac
ters there. . Roecoe Conkllng was at his
best and James G. Blalue had not yet en
tered the senate. General Logan, Cart
Schurz, Allen G. Thurman, Oliver P. Mor
ton, Thomas F. Bayard and John J. In
galls were leading Figures. Senator Jones
has from the first been recognized as an
authority on finance and his vast store of
Information has ever been at the com
mand of bla colleagues.
Career of Senator Vest.
Senator Vest belongs to the next gener
ation of seuators. He entered, the.. body
in' 1879 and has served for twenty-four
years, winning a reputation for brilliancy

artee seldom excelled in the tenate. He
has been in poor health for several yeara,
but notwithstanding he has been almost
blind and has needed constant assistance
in going into and out of the senate cham
ber, he has continued to maintain his
interest in the proceedings and his pros--tlge
as an orator. He has made several
speeches on current topics during the past
session and each time that he has taken
the floor he has been given the closest
attention by both senators and occupants
of the galleries.
Senator Jones of Arkansas camo to the
front during the consideration ot the Wilson-Gorman
tariff ou account of his
knowledge of business details and his tact
In dealing with men and be has easily
held hla place as a party leader since that
time. . He baa been chairman of the demo
cratic conference, and on this account and
because of the fact that he Is chairman
of the democratic national commltee has
been regarded . much cf the time as the
official head of the party In the senate and
in the country at large.

Joneses will make three vacancies in the
finance committee and also cause vacan
cies on many other important committees.
