TWO HUNDRED PRESENT. Cloverport never had a laugh on a show boat equalled to one Neil Leitchfield sprung on her Friday night nt the opera house. She just bent double, jumped up in her chair, stamped her eet and gave shrieks of laughter at his jokes, personations and funny stories. Mrs. Leitchfield rendered several selections on the violin that soothed the crowd and gave them a chance to rest their faces while Neil got ready for another stunt. Hiss Leitchfield The Star. Miss Abbie Leitchfield, although suffering from a cold, charmed the audience with several song readings, which were splendidly executed by her. However, she did not do herself justice. Unlike most stage women, Miss Leitchfield is unusually attractivejust to meet her as the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leitchfield. This is her sixth season on the road with her father and mother, They who have traveled all their life. call New Jersey their home, but they travel seven months of the year.

With the session of Uio leglslatum nlmosl nearing tho end, EH II. Brown still is a member of tho prison commission and Is by no means certain that his crown will bo knocked off at all. If tho session should end without the of any bill removing tho present prison commission, it Is believed to be certain that tho governor would call an extra session, to pass a new prison commission act but this possibly will not be necessary. Tho governor, to uso a Blang phrase, went after the scalp of Mr. Brown. He thought ho had it several times, but Mr. Brown showed the bouncing abilities of a tennis ball and has come back each time. As predicted In this column last week, Mr. Brown made his last piny on a possible disagreement between tho house and tho senate over tho prison bills. Tho surprise was when the house not only rejected tho senato amendment which would allow all those holding office in tho prisons on Jan. 1, 1912 to hold onto their Jobs for four years, but went everybody a few better and turned down tho idea altogether. Tho bill that the house passed does not pretend to take tho prison out of politics. It leaves them In, decidedly and the only thing it does is to turn tho patronage over from one set of Democrats to another set. Tho Republicans do not get a smell. In fact they did not stand much chance either way, for under the senate bill they would have gotten two commissioners and then no Jobs until four years had passed except such places as might happen to be vacated. The house bill would throw out of their Jobs every guard, deputy and warden now employed In tho prisons. If the new commission wanted their places. Of course, some would have "pull" enough to have themselves retained. TMia nrAOQnf nrtffnn AAmmtoalnn t9 which Mr. Brown is the real fighting representative, has a great deal of strength in tho senato and it has always been a close vote there They will now rally their strength to havo the senato reject the house bill entirely. A conference committee will do appointed and the two houses will try to get together on a bill that can be passed by both houses, with Mr. Brown hoping that there can be no agreement during the present session. Jf the session ends with no bill passed he will hold on and Flnley Fogg will hold also for two years. Democratic members of tho legislature have been having much excitement during the present session playing presidential politics. For instance, omebody offered a resolution Inviting Mr. Hearst to como to Frankfort and make an address to tho legislature. Nearly everybody votel for it, being perfectly willing to have Mr. Hearst or anybody else address tho legislature. Then the Wilson men had a resolution offered Inviting Gov. Woodrow "Wilson of New Jersey to como to Frankfort That went through. Then the Harmon men Joined in and had Gov. Harmon asked. Tho Republicans, of course, had their own list, which started off with tho colonel, and tho prospective candidates. Tho Republicans shied off and not one of them accepted, probably regarding It settled that Mr. Taft will carry Kentucky, the machlno being lined up (or him. The Democrats accepted, however, Mr. Hearst was to havo been here last week, but bad to cancel his date on account of illness in his family. Gov. "Wilson came and was given such a cordial recaption and so much enthusiasm for him was shown that oven the Wilson men were surprised. Tho New Jersey governor made two speeches here and each was a literary masterpiece. The politician writer for the Newark Nowa, who has spent a great deal of time with Gov. Wilson during bis campaign and sinco ho has been forernor, said, at the Wilson "dollar" banquet, that the two speeches the governor bad made In Frankfort were the beet speeches he bad ever heard tbe governor make, "and I have heard him make more than 200 speeches, not la bis home state, but is other 1912 pas-sag- o Mr. Harper Leaves.

One of the hardest fought criminal trials in the history of Breckenridge county was concluded yesterday in the Cirduit Court, tho jury returning a verdict of "not guilty' in the case against Willie Tindall and Doll Roberts charging murder. Tindall and Roberts were charged with the murder of Jerry Landers about a year ago. Tindall did the shooting and Roberts was charged with aiding him. There were between thitty and forty witnesses examined and every point was carefully contested. The case was prosecuted In the examining court by County Attorney Eskridge, and in the Circuit Court by Commonwealth's Attorney, Layman and General David R. Murray. The defendants were represented by Moorman &Ball. A. A. Norris, former business man and veteran of the Civil War, died suddenly of heurt disease at his home, U3 West Oak street, at 10:45 o'clock Tnursday morning. About three weeks ngo Capt. Norris was attacked by pneumonia. Last Monday, after the crisis in Ills first illness had been passed, symptoms of heart disease were noticed, but it was believed by the attending physicians that the patient was in no immediate dangei. Thursnay morning, however, Capt. Norri3 became suddenly worse. His widow and daughter were at the bedside when tho end came. Capt. Norris was born in Cumberland county, Kentucky, in 1831. His father, Zebulon Harris, was a farmer. At the age of 27 Capt. Norris, at the opening of the conflict between the North and South, became one of Gen. John Morgan's followers. He joined the Fourteenth Kentucky cavalry. At the battle ot Buffington Island, during the raid in the State of Ohio, Capt. Norris was captured by the Federals. He was imprisoned at Johnson's Island and was not released until near the close of the war. Capt. Norris then came to Louisville and became connected with a clothing concern. Several years later he Identified with Tapp, Leathers & Co., clothing manufactures. He remained in this company for thirty-twyears. He retired from active business life about sis years ago. Captain Norris was a charter member of the Fourth-avenMethodist church. At one time he was a member of the Board of Governors.

P. Whittinghill, an Owensboro attorney, who disclosed some sensational information at the last meeting of the committee, S. H. Kash and several other revenue agents and their attorneys arrived in Frankfort last night and today, but learned the committee would not meet until Monday night. The time of meeting was postponed, owing to the absence of several members of the committee, Senator J. C. Graham, chairman, having gone to Louisville, and Sergeant-at-Arm- s Gates Young having gone to his home in Owensboro, where he will be detained until Monday. When Whittinghill is placed on the stand, it is expected that he will be put under "fire," as S. II. Kash, for wlonx Whittinghill brought many suits, having employed Judge Williams to repre sent him in the meetings of the committee. The evidence given by Whit- tinghill has caused no small amount of interest to be taken in tho coming meetings of the committee, nnd the rumor that he has several more sensa tional things to tell the committee, has aroused interest. Revenue Agent Kash denies most of the evidence given by Whittinghill, and states that ne will prove himself innocent of all charges of wrong doing, and intimates that he will have something sensational to spring on Whittinghill, but the latter disclaims any knowledge s by himself. of any wrong-doing- The Dying Hickory Trees-Cau- se And Remedy.

Representative Den Washington. Fourth Kentucky disTohnson of the trict continues to bo much In tho limelight hero as a result of his excoriation of tho nttempts to haVo tho federal government pay the larger of the bills of the District of Columbia, regardless of their character. These attempts Mr. Johnson has buccessfully checkmated so far, at least to the extent of saving the national government over $2,000,000. In discussing at length the attempted elimination of those Mirlous sections In tho d'strirt bills which aro loaded," Mr. Johnson made a speech caused him to bo showered which with congratulations from both sides of tho house. This speech, as it referred to tho municipality' of Washington, would be of local Interest to every other city In the country in which combinations have sought to filch the public treasury. Naturally tho press of the district is waging a determined and united fight on the chairman of tho District of Columbia committeo, but Mr. John-Eohas paid no attention to the editorial and news stories. Mr. Johnson took up, In turn, the operation of the local railway company, which seeks, ho asserted, at tho governments expense, to have work done which it should pay for. Ho ridiculed the devices to which those vho aro anxious to have tho federal Fovernmont pay the expenses of tho I'Istrlct resort. He pointed out tho Inconsistency in this or that apparently Innocent section which, when properly shown up, proved to be another to extort money from the national pin so Mr. Johnson was at times caustic and humorous, and he hold the attention of the houso throughout. Johnson Opens Fire. The house being in committeo of the whole on the state of the Union, had under consideration house bill No. 17681, making appropriations tq j.rovldo for expenses of the government of the District of Columbia for the fiscal year ending Juno 13, 1913, and for other purposes. The section of tho bill under Immediate consideration called for an appropriation of $975,408 for Interest and sinking fund on the funded debt. Mr. Johnson spoke ns follows: Mr, Chairman: I make a point of order on this section of the bill, and I wisli to (IIscufs it a llttlo. I regard this as one of the very important items In tho bill. In fact, I think there is no one Item that is more than this. It has been carried along In the appropriation bill for a number of years. However, when It was first put In the appropriation bill It was inserted with tho form of tho statute of 1879 upon the subject. Since that timo thoy have ceased to use the htatuto with this form, hut have used somebody's conclusion as to what the statute meant, and have Insctcd that conclusion in the appropriation bill instead of tho cot Itheir Hefore golim further into that particular subject, I wish to deoto a lit tie time, not to criticism, but to a of some of tho rulings which the cliaiiman has made. ' A ruling by the chair to the effect that an nppioprlation made out of public mones for tho puiposo of resui facing streets with asphalt can be dlvorted fiom tho purpose for which It was appioprlnted and used to build brkk paving for the btreet car companion; and another ruling to the effect that an appropriation mado for the public schools, with which to equip public playgrounds, can be from that purpose and spent upon any other playgrounds parochial, sectmlan or otherwise do not inspire ono to further points of order. , Because the street car companies Oesiro tho district authorities to construct that part of tho streets which, under the law, tho street ear companies must build and maintain, Is no reason why tho district authorities frhould want to go Into tho street building business for tho street Tho district olllclals should, in my opinion, confine thomsolves to the task of caring for their part of tho work; and, Instead of becoming contractors for the railroads, should notify tho railroad companloa that thoy thomsolvew must do it. Tho railroads might not cato for a small lino, but If thoy did not comply with tho law their franchisor would bo forfeited. These franchises wero secured at too llttlo an oxponse, and aro now no vnluablo an asset that not tho remotest, risk will bo assumed which might endanger their forfeiture. I am conscious of tho fact that no ene who will read tho Record containing the proceedings of the committeo of the whole' house while this bill has bwa undr coiwliloraUon nan sir. n ie-vierail-toad- fe 1 , rive at tho honest and Intelligent conclusion that nny motion mado or any amendment offered by mo lias had for Its purpose tho rcp?nl or Impairment of n single net of congress. If I sought to do that, this Is nelthor tho tlmo nor tho place for It. I'pon the other hand, I have faithfully endeavored to havo tho committee nf the whole house conflno Itself strictly to tho law as It Is now upon the statute books. During the re mainder of the timo this bill is under consideration I shall continue my efforts In thnt direction. It will be Infinitely better for both the United States and tho District of Columbia if a strict Interpretation of tho Inw Is hero adhered to. I do not wish to crlttclso adversely the decisions of tho distinguished gentleman who now occupies tho chair; but I trust it is not nt all distasteful even to him for me to review some of them, merely to sec how this yoar a too liberal construction given to a law leads next year to another too liberal construction, until, In a fow years, tho original law is lost sight of and tho accumulated, unwarranted constructions therefore given become the accepted law Important Point Raised. Tho chair has hold that under existing law an appropriation can bo made from the public treasury for ciulpplni; public school playgrounds. Whether or not the law warrants that Is not nt issue, for tho reason that no point wns raised as to that. But a point was raised as to whether or not the public treasury could be invaded for the purpose of equipping other playgrounds; and tho chair has held that an appropriation of tho people's money could bo put into the hands cf the district authorities with no limitation upon It other than an expressed belief thnt upon his part that those with whom it would bo intrusted would not go bojond proper limits in extending it. If th la policy should bo generally pursued, there would be no need for a slnglo official bond in tho ontlro Union; In fact, If wo aro to presume that only the proper and Just act Is always to bo done, there would be no reed for laws, no need for courts, no need for this legislature. Tho law relative to tho schools of the District of Columbia not only contemplates, but says so in so many words, that only tho public schools are to bo cared for at public expense. If, as the chair has ruled, the public money can legally bo spent for playgrounds other than tin public school playgrounds, if tho officials Into whose hands the money" to be expended has been put think so, then all limitation Is removed. If the public money can be spent by district officials upon any playgrounds which they select, then let us see where It lends. If this expenditure may legally go beyond the public school, then it can go to tho sectarian school; next It may go tc tho private school; next it may go to the public playground nnd Just here I wish to call attention to the playground Item. Thnt Item does not I'mlt the public fund to equipping the public school playgrounds; neither does It limit It oven to school grounds. Under the decisions of the chair the district officials Into whose hands this money Is put, if they wish to do so, can expend any part or all of it upon any playgrounds. Then, if they wish to do so, they can spond It upon grounds other than those generally accepted as playgrounds for school children; and, from all I can learn, they contemplate expending It upon grounds other than public school grounds. When the ground upon which tho money is spent is not property legally acquired by the district for tho system, then that public school ground occupies tho same legal status as a park piivatoly owned. The public fund may properly bo spent upon n park public owned; but It can not pioporly be spent upon a park privately owned, except under authority of an act tf congress; and it requires an act of congress to give that disci otlon to tho district officials which the ruling of the chair gives them. There is no net or congiess which authorizes the expenditure of public money upon such prlvato park or private giounds as I havo mentioned. And, if there Is no such act of congress, then the Item in the nppioprlation bill is clearly subject to a point of order, nt least until a limitation of Its use is confined to the public schools. Equipping Playgrounds. Again, If public money can. In tho judgment of district officials, bo spent to equip pla grounds, who Is to determine what that equipment is to bo' Inasmuch as there is no maximum school ngo limit in the district tho equipment must, of necessity, tako a wldo range. The official report of tho school board discloses their statement that tho school children (?) rango In ago between 5 years and GC figuring purposes. That other purposo must be for jackstraws in tho playgrounds. If this irnlnload of pencils wero not of suitable bIzo already for JnckstrnwB. hatchets might bo Biippllcd Instead of Jackknlves. HoNv cvor, hatchets should ho furnished the school children, anyway. They could get abundant amusement out of breaking up and making mumble pegs out of tho $3,000 worth of good Bchool furniture which wns thrown out of the Bchoolhouses to mnkc room for new furniture, which was shy on specifications so tho papors Bald, and tho papers aro nlwnyn right. Then, Mr. Chairman, your ruling on this question leads to other equipment for tho playgrounds, Tho school board report nlso contains tho information thnt ono of tho colored teachers takes her "klndorgartcnts" around to Corcoran Art gallery onco a week and there entertains theso llttlo tots by pointing out to thorn tho artistic and masterly features of tho greatest collection of paintings In this wholo country. Undo Sam pays in salaries, houses and grounds one-haof an avcrago year in nnd year out of about $4,000,000. Mr. Chairman, Just as soon as your Uncle Sam can spare tho money your ruling should bo brought into service, nnd tho Corcoran Art gallory purchased as a playground for tho colored "kindcrgartcnts" of tho district. (Laughter.) Kentucky, my natlvo Gtate, will erect a monument to my memory for having made a point of order which brought forth a ruling which establishes a precedent upon which Kentucky taxpayers may havo tho pleasure of sending ono of theso llttlo colored tots of artistic temperament to tho Old World to gather up for tho Washington playgrounds all the bogus pieces of tho masters which J. Plcrpont Morgan did not havo unloaded upon him. (Laughter.) Whllo Kentucky would thus honor mo, Mr. Chairman, for having done nothing more than unwillingly mado the opportunity for such a chnnco to spend the public money, marble shaft nnd fulsome epitaph for you, Mr. Cliaiiman, who established the precedent, would bo hut mockery of the honors which Tennessee would confer upon jou for giving her, Kentucky's sister state, an opportunity to pour the money of her people into such a gloilous work. Again, Mr. Chairman, tho printed report of the school board for this city brings the delightful information that the people's money is spent to teach the young men and young ladlesblack and white, from G yeais to dfi years- - to "trip the light fantastic tee." By all means the playground, paid for by your onstltuent and mine, should he equirped with a ballroom having gilded wall and waxen floors, that these ladles and gentlemen colon d and othei wise may, in swallowtail coats and kid gloves, sleeveless nnd hosonilcss gowns, instruct tho of the lowly Nazarene who aro teaching f om the pulpit that the sensual embrace of the round danco loads directly, in the great hereafter, to the certain attainment of thnt for which He bowel His head and died upon the cross. lf es cil mut of necessity be for soma othr purposo than for writing and PA PER BAG UNITED STATE'S RECRUITING STATION COOKING Gre&tfSysteta Perfected by rVS.

Turn tho heat on full and cook for fivo minutes longer. Tako up tho meat on a hot platter, pour tho bag gravy over it, and servo what remains of tho pepper mixture in a separate boat. Tho meat roasted thus without seasoning i tendor and juicy and ready to take flavors from tho gravy and tho sauco. Serve with It potatoes both sorts baked in their Jackets, usipg very little wnter in tho bags with them so they shall bo mealy. Too mich water makes white potatoes waxy or heavy, and gives to sweet potatoes a pale flavor not desirable The secret of paper bag cooking, as of all other cooking, Is learning tho difference enough and either too much or too little. Servo also with the meat either turnips cooked in a bag or carrots or spinach. A beet salad goes well with tho highly seasoned meat much better than cold slaw, though that will servo at a pinch. Fresh cucumbers, sliced thin, and seasoned only with salt and vinegar, are best of all. Boiled batter puddlnc goes finely with such savory meat and its vegetable complement. To nmke it, take for each person who Is to eat of it a fresh egg, a level tablespoonful of flour and half a cup of milk. Beat tho egg yolks very light, adding to them alternately the flour, with a llttlo baking powder sifted through It, and the milk, taking caro to mix very smooth. Beat tho egg whites very stiff and melt a level spoonful of butter for each three eggs in tho pudding. Beat in tho melted butter It must not bo hot, only warm enough to run then add raisins and citron, in tho proportion of a cupful for every two eggs. Tho raisins must be seeded, the citron finely shredded, and both well floured. Beat tLcm In well, but quickly, then add the whites of eggs Fold rather than beat them in, and rour the pudding into either a well greased bag or a mold lined with well greased paper bag paper. Set either mold or bag lnsldo another bigger bag, pour in enough water to como half way up the side, seal, and cook in a very hot oven seven minutes, then in a of an moderate ono for hour. Be 'careful to leave room In tho bag; the pudding rises a lot if it is made right. Servo In tho mold, cut it with a very hot knife or spoon, and servo with a rich sweet wlno or lemon sauco. Before putting In water, bo sure that the outer bag is water-tigh- t all up and down the seam. You can, if you like, make a bag mold for tho pudding, but tho paper bag, tied tight at tho mouth, is rather moro trustworthy. Tho boiling bag must, of course, bo set upright; henco it will bo apt to require tho wholo oven space.

STOCK MANIPULATOR, He Declares the Monument Wilt Do the Crowning Effort of His Life Photographs Show the Model to Be a Magnificent Work of Art. Tho movement to erect n monument for tho Confederate (lend In the Arlington Kntlonnl cemetery, stnrtcd seven yenrs ngo by the Washington chapters of tho Daughters of the Confederacy nntl tho Sons of Veterans, has finally been crowned with success. Only a few thousand dollars of tho cntlro sutn needed remain to be subscribed. It Id proposed to erect the statue at tbo plot In Arlington where tho remains of more than 200 Confederate soldiers are burled. All the cxpenso attached to collecting and reint erring these bodies was borne by the national government. At tho tlmo this section of the national cemetery was set asldo for tho Confederate dead a portion was reserved In tho center of tlio plot for tho erection of a memorial nnd permission granted by congress for Its erection. Leaders In tho movement say that It Is peculiarly fitting that tho memorial should bo at Arlington, the estnte of the "hero of the lost cause." Ar lington has long been ono of the most frequently visited points of the country in the vicinity of Washington, nnd tbo memorial when completed will bo observed by practically nil tho visitors to tho capital. The sculptor of the monument Is Sir Moses Ezeeklcl, himself a veteran of tho civil war, having been twice wounded, who won great distinction In the battle of Newmarket as one of tho corps of cadets at the Virginia MiUpon his graduation litary institute. ho achieved many honors as a sculptor and has been twice knighted.

Edwin Ilnwloy, who died recently In Now York, was tho dominant factor In more than u dozen railroad companies nnd was regarded as one of tho five biggest financiers In A melon. Ho was sixty-onyears old and n bachelor. Edwin Hnwley followed In tho footsteps of the late E. U. Harriman as a constructive railroad magnate. He did not manipulate stocks, but built roads. Ho bought cripples and made them whole. In this way ho made his speculations dead certainties and in the doing he nmnssed millions. Among the railroad companies he practically controlled arc the Chesapeake and Ohio, tho Colorado and Southern, the Minneapolis nnd St Louis, the Iown Central, the Missouri, Kansas and Texas, the Hocking Valley, tho Iowa Central und the St. Louis nnd Western. His career was Just another American romance of tho poor boy who worked his way up to tho plnunclo of success by unflagging energy. e Come to Louisville Take Advantage of This Clearance and Have Your Railroad Fare Rebated at the Rate of 5 Per Cent on Every $1 Purchase IN'ow; FEBKlTAKV CLKAKAXCK FEBK U A ItY CLE All ANCE FEHKUAlty CLEARANCE White Goods, Towels Walstings; crossbar and strlred; up to 36c; February clearance price Walstings; stripes, checks and crossbar effects', 12jc values Longcloth; chamois finish; worth $1 00 bolt; February clearance h Wash Fabrics 35 Inch Silks "71-a- Of All Kinds Zub OQp QRp values 1 Qp I Uu Qp Ob Percales; mill ends; light medium colorings; values to 11 nd 12b .0c Plain Pongees; with self- colored designs; 27 inches wide 05c Bordered Crepe de Chine; February clearance price 18-in- 15c Flceco down Medium designs, for kimonos, etc Flannelette; large and Iflp IUb M Jul QQp 7Qp 10b in light and dark coloring Outing Cloths; checks and plaids; Cotton Challles; for kimonos and r2b In A Railroad j Builder.

The price for tho monument wns to bo $3:5,000, of which $3,000 was to bo reserved for the erection and shipment. This price wns later Increased to $30,000, of which $10,000 is to bo reserved by the committee. Tho, entire time of the sculptor Is Dt, oing devoted to the work, and ho has informed tho commltteo that unless something unforeseen happens ho will be nblo to fulfill bis contract. Sir Moses has sent photos of tho work to the committee from time to time, but he stipulated that they were not to be made public until the work has i)een completed. It is said, however, that tho central figure of the memorial Is to be the figure of a to represent tho south. In her right hand she holds a laurel wreath or crown. Her left rests on the handle of a flow. Around tho top of tho circular baso on which tho figure stands are the seals of the Confederacy. Uencath this are sorao fifteen figures meu, women, children and soldiers all allegorical and typical nnd each a work of nrt in Itself. Photos Are Most Beautiful.

Tho entire work will bo in bronze, and all tho funds allowed tho artist for his efforts will bo placed in tho actual material of tho work. Being imbued with tho Bplrlt of the undertaking, tho artist has annouucod that ho will mako every effort to mako tho monument tho crowning iieulovemcnt of his career. Tho cornerstone of tho memorial is' to bo iuid during the conveutlou of the Daughters of tho Confederacy, which Is to bo held in Washington next November, when thousands of women who aro tho daughtors 5f the men that helped tho "lost cause," n memorable historical factor, will be in tho city. Tho officers of tho executlvo commlt teo are: Hilary A. ncrbert, chalrmon; L'Mrs. Murlon Butler, vice chairman; Mrs. Drurv Conwnv Ludlow, recording secretary, and Wallace Strcator, treasurer. Tho ndvlsory board is composed bo-for- e wo-mn- n born in Chatham, N. Y., in tho son of a poor farmer. When ho was sixteen years old ho crowded his personal effects Into a carpetbag and went to New York to bunt a Job. He got one on the day he lauded and began his career as u messenger for tho Erie railroad at a salary of $4 a week. He remained with the Erie until ho got n chance to work for the Ohio nnd Mississippi railroad for $9 a week. His next shift was to the eastern offices of the Itock Island road as bill of lading clerk at $14 n week. Soon afterward tho California Fast Freight lino needed a contracting agent and Haw-lesot the Job. Here he first camu In contact with Collls I. Huntington, then the big man in the western railroad field. Huntington liked Ilnwley because, as he said. "He could keep his mouth shut." He soon became assistant trallic manager of the Southern Pacific. Following the death of Huntington. E. II. Hnrrlmnu picked out Hnwley as tho man who could help him get control of the Southern Pacific railroad. Ilnwley "turned the trick" for him. but Harriman turned him down when he sought to be made a director of the Chicago and Alton railroad. Harriman gave James Stiltman the place, but he did uot succeed in keeping Ilnwley out Ilnwley bought all the Alton stock he could get through an alliance with the Itock Island and then took the railroad away from Harriman. This was the only big defeat scored against Harriman throughout his railroad career. Held Forty Directorships. Iluwley continued to develop as a railroad magnate until he finally controlled the Minneapolis nnd St. Louis, the Iowa Central, the Chesapeake and Ohio, the Chicago and Alton ami the Toledo. St. Louis ond Western, with a total mileage of 4.870. But these roads merely formed the nucleus for his bigger plans. He was a director in more than forty corporations when ho died. At the lime of his death ho was devoting nil his energies to the weaving together of u chain of railroads from Winnipeg to the gulf. The consummation of this scheme would have placed him In the same rank as X. J.

"A railroad is governed by just the same natural law that governs all healthy business it must take in more money than it pays out. "The Beacon believes that the ne Is the most cessity of rate serious problem ot tho present hour. Itatrs are two high at some points; they are doubtless too low at other points. Many discriminations have grown up vvh'.h rob communities of their just commercial opportunities and their natural advantages. These discriminations cannot be settled by sweeping resolutions demanding the reduction of all freight and passenger rates and the immediate arrest and imprisonment of all railroad presidents. Those problems must be settled by intelligent study, nDt by bitter political cam paigns. The railroad officials will have to admit the right of states to know and study facts properly and in tho right spirit. The public will havo to admit the right of railways to reasonable profits, as well as their rights to rest theii case upon facts in sober trib unals and not upon theories or the hasty judgments of State legislatures moved by political feeling. "You can't reduce the revenues of a railroad by unfriendly legislation and increase its operating expenses by the same power without wrecking it. "The administrative tribunals which find it popular to regulate railroads from a political point of view, owe it not only to tho country but to the rail ruads to grasp the significance of official figures. "A tribunal thatestablishcs confiscatory rates, is acting just as dishonorably as a railroad that established unjust rates. "Tho political officer who believes he can fix railroad rates out of his own head, is just as dangerous as tho doctor who seeks to diagnoso a case of chest trouble without the aid of the stcthe-cop- e and the other instrumentalities which govern diagnoses. "The tribunal which does not approach its task with the same grave concern that characterizes careful railroad management is destructive. Official regulation of railroads will be a curse unless it considers providing conditits duty ions under which railroads can grow is just as imoortant for equitable rates and proper service. "You cannot cripple the railroads without crippling the Industrial progress of tho country.

Tho "'houso had a bill of Its own, and that bill came up In the houso laso week. Somebody moved that tho session bo extended until the bill under dlscus-elowas disposed of. That wont through with a whoop and they then began debating tho house bill. Mr Keller, as has been said, opposed tho bill and did not think It would sorvo any good purpose. The debate lasted for somo little while, but at length somebody moved to substitute the senate bill, which has already passed, for the houso bill, tho measures being nlmost slmlllar. Tho motion to substitute was carried and It looked like tliu houso was then going ahead, at least tho houso thought it was going ahead, and pass tho senate bill. But Mr. Keller called attention to the fact thnt when the senate bill was adopted ns a substitute, the houso bill no longer was under discussion. The chairman sustained his point of order and tho house caught its breath and laughed at tho way it had backed itself around into a trap. That ended any further talk about the flro insurance commission bill and now nobody seems to know just where they aro at as regards tho act This Is tho first time during tho present session that any member has used his parllmentary knowledge to win a victory, though tlmo was when such a thing happened every day during a session. Mr. Keller was clerk of tho house for a long time and ho knows the rules, but most of tho tlmo he docs not care enough o take n hand. Down at tho governor's reception tho night of his valentine party, thcro was an Immense crowd and the governor, who la the most hospitable man imaginable, was worried all during tho evening for fear there would bo too many persons present. He had been deluged with letters from .ill over the state from persons who bad expressed a desire to attend the valentlno partv. Tho report had gottmi out thnt the governor's engagement was to bo announced that night and that tho next mistress of the mansion would bo there to receive with him. This, coupled with the fact that the governor's staff was to bo there In full uniform, served to draw a big crowd. There was never any Idea of tho governor's engagement being announced: In fact the governor has no idea of marrying f"."i,,i. The sweet and l way In which he talks of his wlfo shows that ho has no thought of another matrimonial venture. Tho governor refused to allow anybody to comlssorato with him, either, over living alone in tho mansion with no woman at tho head.

Mr. Miller, you trotted out one of your "old things" to beat McCreary, and you fell short by 30,000. When you trotted out Adair to beat Gus Drown you failed. I am for Wilson. Charlie Payne, J. H. Urown, C. L. Avitt, J. H. Avitt and Garrett Vessels are all strong for Wilson. He will euro get the nomination if Mr. Wattersou is opposed to him. He was strong against Cleveland in I892. Iu N. Y. he will have to bridge an impassible gull. In the West his silver views and record give us no nsaui-anc- e that he can make tho gains to compensate for his losses in the East. Even in Indiana his name is a keynote to a "schism." Now for the facts. Mr. Cleveland carried New York by a majority of 45,518; Indiana 7.000; Connecticut 5,01)0: Illinois 27 000; Wisconsin 6,541. Iifthe popular vote lie had 382, 9S6 more votes than Harrison. The vote for Mr. Cleveland whs 277; Mr. II rr'sati 115; Mr. Weaver 22. And Mr. Wilson will do much better than Mr. Clev land.

"We hear a great deal," he continued, "about campaigns being won by highballs and about masterpieces of art being executed under the influence of one or another kind of liquor. This may be true in Isolated cases. I think, however, that the unfortunate proclivity of many brilliant men to overindulge in intoxicants is perhaps merely another bit of evidence in favor of the theory that genius is akin to insanity. The normal mind works better without alcohol. To the diseased or overtired brain It acts as a whip or spur on a jaded horse.
