Trom the rear of the chamber Senator

Henri Brlsson, president of the Chamber
of Deputies, In hla closing address de
clared that during the' forty years he had
sat In the lower house no Parliament had
w'orked harder or been more useful than
, the retiring one.
It had numerous social reforms to Us
icredlt workmen's pensions, tariff reform
j and the state purchase of one of the most
, Important railroads In France and It also
was leaving the Income tax bill In good
shape for Its successor. All this, he said,

RICHMOND. Va., April . Representa
tive Hansdell of l,oulniana. president of the
National Rivers and Harbors congress, was
guest of honor of the Chamber of Com
merce of fhe city of Richmond .tonight,
and the principal speaker of the evening.
His subject was "The Systematic Improve

Mr. Kansdell paid special attention to
terminals .and the importance of public
ownership thereof. He also discussed the
"long and short haul" clausa In the ralS
road bill . now pending before congress,
which prohibits railways from cnatglng
more for a ehorter than for a longer
distance over the same route in the same
He said if such a clause were adopted
It would prohibit the unfair practices of
railroads at river points, which charge
such low rates there as to drive the boats
out of business and recoup their own louses
by much higher rate at Interior points
away from the water course.
Mr. . Ranadell Is firmly convinced that
unless the national government is . willing
to protect the rivers by some . such
provision as this or adept a method
similar to that of the Hermann, which
requires railroads competing with water
lines to charge 120 per cent of the water
rate that It is unwise to continue to ex

Members of Council Ordered to Put
Question on Ballot by Court
MITCHELL, S. V., April 9.-(Spcclal.)'
Six members of the city council of Mount
Vernon and the clerk were brought be
fore Judge Smith Tuesday on mandamus
proceedings. A petition was presented the
council asking for a vote- on the license
question, and in preparing for the publi
cation of the notice calling the election,
the council refused to accept the petition.
This being the case would leave Mount
Vernon a dry town for another year. Jl
was then the mandamus proceedings wero
started and tha council required to appear
before Judge Smith of the circuit court.
The council held that the pe-tition was
Illegal from the fact that some of the
signers were not freeholders, and that two
members of the council had signed the
petition, and that they could not vote on
the proposition. Judge Smith held that the
council would be required to publish the
notice and to grant tho petition to vote on
the license quejtion. After that, if license
carried, the court stated that the council
could then take up the question of the
Illegality of tha petition. A particularly
hot fight Is being aged on the license
question and speakers heve be-n holding
meetings every night this week.

SLIDING SCALE " FOR TIMBER
evr Regulation treating Dlu De
mand for 'limber Men Through
out Black IIIIU.
!iFAIWOOl' S. !.. April P. (Special .)
Through the efforta of Supervisor Kelleter
a new system of handling limber as in
the Wark Hills national forest has been
devised and put into effect, the result, be
ing a great convenience to timber pur
chaser In this region and greatly Inn eased
sales. It has been the government's policy
to sell all dead and bug-Infected timber
and such green timber as had reached ma
turity and the removal of which would not
injure tho remaining tree growth. The
minimum figure allowed by the government
In bids advertised for has been i per thou
sand feet for green timber anywhere In the
Black Hills forest. Hut competition be
tween native timber and that shipped In
from outside points has been keen, low
freight rates rum the west allowing lum
ber companies to ship In timber here even
cheaper than It could be purchased here at
the government's minimum figure, In many
cases long hMiils by wagon being necessary
in this e.v rve.
Supervor Kelleter had a thorough, ex
amination made of the whole forest and
then abolished the od fin I minimum rate,
making a sliding scale according to local-It'-
which takes Into consideration the ac
cessibility of the timber, Its proximity to
a market and the general topography of
Hie country. This has rcsuliid In a great
demand for timber in the Hills on the .new
tale end the rangers are all busy flgui.ipg
up with purchasers and making examina
tion of timber sections, the present sales
bringing from $1 to $ii per thousand, mak
ing increased activity at all the sawmills'
and resulting In the reopening of. the big
lumber camp of the Mclaughlin Tie and
Timber company at Nahant, where 1U0 men
were formerly employed, and creating a
demand for timber men throughout the
Hills. The forest service officials here ex
