GRAVITY OF SENATE PAGES
Mtalatare Statesmen Absorb the
Atmosphere Enveloping the
No one takes the daily proceedings of
the United States senate more seriously
than the double quartet of little lads serv
ing as pages on either side of the chamber.
The spectators in the galleries are no more
eagerly interested than they. The dignity
and formality of the place are Just, as dear
to them as to tlu chair' Itself, knd the
sense of responsibility weighs even more
heavily upon them than upon the gravest
'of senators. ' .

slipping swiftly but noiselessly through the
aisles to take a message so long and often
so complicated that it would stagger many
an older person to transmit it accurately.
These lime messengers, however, have ac
quired. In addition to their admirable train
ing In alertness and self-possession, the
habit of observation and close attention.
It Is surprising to learn how familiar they
are, not only with the form and usage of
the senate chamber, but also with the
actual content and significance of practi
cally all the bills which come up for discus
sion. One pf the head pages, who has
charge of the boys, states that frequently
a senator sends one of the youngsters for
some bill or record, giving the name or de
scription merely, without a number to help
them remember; yet there Is never a mo
ment's hesitation nor a mistake In the
paper .which is brought.
Busy as the little fellows are, they fol
low all the debate with keen Interest, and
each boy forms his own stanch little
opinion, which Is exchanged with his con
freres later in the day. They are all
strongly partisan In feeling, each chap
being loyal to his particular senator, and
they await the opening of each dsy's
session with almost ths comprehensive
intelligence of their elders. It is this real
entering Into the action of the senate
which has made the pages so popular with
the senators themselves and arouses gen
eral respect for and pride In them.
Down In the "pages' room." an ante
room which is devoted entirely to their
use. they hold now and then, in their
tejsure moments, a "mock "senste." This
is conducted, so 'tis said, in absolutely
perfect parliamentary form. Indeed, one
or the officials In authority at the capl
tol says that these boys know more about
parliamentary order and rulings than
many of the lawyers throughout the
country. Their "session" Is very serious
business to them. Seats are "assigned the
various members, each page taking the
role of the senator who has been Influential
in getting him his position; a president.
secretary, clerk, and stenographer are ap
pointed, and the proceedings are a perfect
imitation of the "real thing," enacted on
the floor. Some of the boys are clever
mimics, too, and take off the peculiarities
of the different senators with laughable

of these small pages of the senate. They

Many people question 4he wisdom of keep

12 and 16, and the chllld labor law may yet
bar them out, though an exception may be
made in their case, since their small size
makes them less conspicuous in the cham
ber than older boys would be. As for
their parents, most of them feci that the
discipline and general educational training
they gain on the floor is worth far more
than school room work, and several of the
boys have private tutors who help them to
keep upwlth their studies. All of the boys
study outside and practically keep up

Be Registered, Sara
All county general fund warrants, aggre
gating about 145,000, will be called In within
a few days, and for a while at leant Doug
las county will be on a cash basis. County
Treasurer Fink has estimsted that all of
these warrants can be taken up without
exhausting the general fund by (10,000 to
The call for the warrants will be made
In a few days and as long as the money in
the general fund lasts no more will be reg
It Is not believed, however, that the
county can stay on a canh basis all of the
present year. When the unallowed claims
now on tile with the clerk, estiinutcd at
about $150,000, are passed on by the com
missioners. It is probable the cash in the
fund will be exhausted and the county will
have to go to registering warrants again.
However, the outlook is declared to be
bright that the county can go on a perma
nent cash basis next year.
Two years ago there was a floating and
warrant Indebtedness of almost halt a mil
lion dollars. This sum has been gradually
reduced until now It Is considerably less
than half of that sum.
This reduction of tbe indebtedness has
been due In a large measure to the in
creased collections under the scavenger
tax law. County Treasurer Fink declares
the collections for May Kill exceed all pre
vious records. Keul estate taxes became
delinquent tbe first of the month and there
has been a rush of property owners to pay
up during the last two weeks. In addition
to the increased real estate collections the
county has assigned a large number of the
lots bought up at the scavenger tax sale
and the proceeds have been largs.
The general fund has also received an
addition of $16,000 from the fee fund, being
