"In my official capacity as chairman
of the democratic stnto committee, ,1 view
with genulno regret tho failure of our
majority In tho lower honso to redeem
tho pledge we mado to tho people In our

that tho loKlHltAlon wns hedged about by
circumstances which created nn honest
misunderstanding.
"I am Informed by some of our demo

made to Imvn the sennto pass a compen

Drug Fiends Work
the Relief Stations
So plausible was tne story told by a
squad of eleven drug fiends yesterday,
that persons In chnrgc of one of the re
lief stntlons supplied them with nearly
new clothing, food nnd articles easily con
vertible Into cast at any pawn shop.
Tho men went to un "uncle'' and sold thu
stuff nnd half an hour later were all
under the Influence of their favorite
druir.
A little boy saw them getting the cloth
lug and followed them down town merely
by chance. When ho saw them pawn the
stuff, he followed In earnest and then no
tified the police.
When Investigation was made. It was
learned that the meh had told the relief
workers that they wore assisting In the
work ami nuked for articles to bo de
livered to sufferers.
STORM AND FLOODED CELLAR
DID NOT BOTHER SETTING HEN
An amusing story s told of a faithful
old halt that went through the Sunday
night storm us bmvely as anybody, She
had been set with a nest of eggs some
tlmo ago In the basement of J. L. Blg-
Hr, 2030 Miami streot, and when tho
storm blew the house partly In It also
burstad n wnterplpe. which flooded the
basement and started the barrel In which
the "old lady" was setting to floating
nround the cellar. '
In the excitement she, of course, was
not thought of and ovan after the storm
had frMbrlded and thruughout the noxt
few daya no effort waa made to look
for her. Thursday, as the wreckage was
being cleared away, one of the workers
was dumfounded to see the cluck perched
upon her nest as though nothing had
happened.
