Paul Fagan Ned Ellis Robert Murphy and Leo Gllllgan t PEERING THRU THE t3ATTL CLOUDS The one great advantage of our form of government is that when people get really interested in political queatiuub they can get their way Usually they pay little attention to politics and nre really governed by others mostly by smooth guys who know how to work the voter by menus of tulk of puny 10 alland so on But when a real moral question comes to the front the people may be trusted and our form of government gives tbiu a chance to make their weight felt That is what happened to Cannon The people have come to distrust him and his system that is all While mutterings of discontent have been heard everywhere sod protest after protest has been made Cannon and his friends went carelessly about the peo pies business in their own way and felt danger nor alarm And now the blow has fallen the weight of the people has struck the system they had built aud their power Is crushed This line not been a party question In the usual sense of the word it has not been a political question It is a question of the right of the people to rule Cannon and his friends deny this but it is a fact and the people have struck because they felt their will was beta g thwartedas it was Cannod et al driven to the Wall have tried to shield themselves behind the great name of the Repub IIcan party The Democrats are only too willing to have them try it as that would weaken the party But they have no right to The questions which have just been settled have nothing to do with any political policy they affect only the right of certain men to certain power The people deny that right mid if the politicians who have now been beaten manage to induce the Republican organization to support their failing cause it will simply result in that partys finding itself opposed to a majority of the people We are strongly Republican and believe in the mission and principles of that party but there can be no doubt that the people are against Cannonism and if Cannon succeeds in committing Our party to his doctrine we must recognize that it will help him nolat all but will weight the partywith his sins Can even that great party bear it l Again it is claimed by the Stand patters that the Insurgents in their fight for the peoples rights have blocked business The Cannon crowd have argued that business could be done only by their methods and when the Insurgents have sought to reform those methods and fulfill the mandate of the people the shout has been raised that they were opposing all bills which might be put thru under thos methods In other words the Cannon men s8IdYou- must do it our way or not at alt No more absurd proposition had ever been put forth No one familiar with the work of Congress should be deceived by it for a second The Cannon crowd themselves when in full control of all this machinery did not do the very things they are acusiug the Insurgents of hindering They have tried to cloud the issue They have tried to have the Insurgents blamed for a disturbance in attacking the wrongful system when it is the defenders of that system who have themselves caused the delay and disturbance by resisting right and justice And in the final test it was the Insurgents and not the Cannon men who made the move for peace and work The Insurgents I endorsed Cannon only In the hope of bringing about a state of affairs where bills could be passed Auld it was Cannon who didall he could to make peace and betwren the two wings of the party impossible On his shoulders and on the shoulders of his supporters must the blame lie for the unfortunate conditions which have come and which may in future develop But the Republican party has shown both its fidelity to Its pledges and its power to reform Itself So far as the Insurgents are concerned it stands today stronger than ever IIBig Wreck at Whites Station Four Men Dead from Crash of L m N Freight Train I Five Miles from Town Wreckage Mixed

expecting But Hardy did not long dwell on idea for ho was after all on his 1him to tho princess Ho would soon In her presence again and tho thought so agitated him so set his heart to beating that all other mat ters were driven from his mind As these thoughts were running through Hardys mind it occurred to him from time to time that It took a long time to reach the palaco of tho princess He knew about where It was located though ho had not visited tho spot It should have taken him 15 minutes to drive there from tho hotel He consulted his watch and found that ho had been half an hour on the road- Cabmen he muttered arc tho same tho world over Tho fellow is driving mo about for a white in order to Increase tho size of tho bill I Ho was on the point of opening the door and shouting to tho Isvoschlk when thb latter drew up before a large square houso on a quiet poorly lighted street Hardy throw open the door and jumped out ICHAPTER XXIX In the Nihilists Den So here we are at last ho said wait for me Tho houso as ho glanced up at it did not impress him as a palace but ho reflected that some of tho older and more exclusive of the Muscovite nobility lived in antiquated and unpretentious rest dences The Isvoschlk ran up tho stops by his side and rang tho bell An old woman opened the door Ah Bho said to tho cabman so you have brought him Da da replied the Jehu and trudged town the stops It was evident to Hardy that ho was expected at the house of tho princess that even the servants had been told to keep on tho lookout for him Hardy had been shown Into a small reception room where n coal fire was burning in tho grate A couple of easy chairs and a leathercovered lounge somewhat worn formed tho only furniture rather manger It seemed to him for time palaco ot a princess Ho removed his coat and sat down before tho fire j Ls the old woman had been expecting him it was safe to assume that she i had gono to inform Romanovna of his arrival He aroso and with fingers that trembled slightly arranged his white tie in u rotrrur over the mantle As ho was byt engaged ho could hear two men talltlcg probably In the hall Just outside tho dear It U the mOB wonderful exolosivoi

results wero most satisfactory A small quantity hurled at the base of a cliff tore the whole face of tho moun taln loose One of the brethren ac cidentally dropped a sphere of It and he simply disappeared vanished from tho face of the earth Ono of his arms was found two miles from tho place lying beside a mountain roadThat would bb good medicine for the czar chuckled a third voice Yes and for tyrants in general With this now and mysterious ox plosive tho Order has an agency by which It can become a terror to the ruling classes by which It can de moralize society and mako way for tho new order of things tho divine brotherhood of man In six months from now there will not bo a man living in Russia who will dare set himself up above his fellow creatures or tako his seat on the tyrant

discovery Tho brother Felix Hulin is heron slen der dark man with eyeglasses The cabman that wo sent brought him and ho Is now in the reception room Ah but ho has the air of a deep student Let us go in and make him welcome Hardy still fumbling with his tie caught sight of his own face in the mirror and was startled by its ex pression It was tho face of a man caught in a trap and who has only a moment to escape before he Is die coveredHe In a nihilists den and had overheard a plot to kill tho czar If it should be discovered that ho was nn Impostor ho had little doubt as to what his fate would be Ho seized his coal and hat and started toward ilho door Three men entered two well dressed and tho other evidently a laborer of some sort Brother Hulln said the tall man In imperfect French we welcome you among the Enemies of Russia Wo know all about your marvelous discovery and wo consider you the greatest inventor of the ago Hardy shook hands with them all with much cordiality I was he said also In French hoping o make a little address to tho brethren tonight Very well said the tall man but dont be long for thero are many of too Order here who are anxious to meet you- HardyI stopped toward tho door with a light h art but Just as ho reached for tho knob the bell rang and ono of the nihilists opened the door and admitted tho cabman with a slender dark man who woro eyeglasses- I am Felix Hulin announced the new arrival In perfect French and that man pointing to Hardy II an impostor CHAPTER XXX For the Good of the Order Tho American In immaculate even tilwlelbowover his arm stood at bay with his back against tho wall silently eyeing the nihilists Tho blood rushed back to his heart and his cheek paled aI trifle but tho glanco that ho thoso wondering faces in which and fear were beginning to hatoII showed no flinching The tall boots of patent leather and shin- Ing silk hat stood at tho door with his broad back against It his whip in his hand Ho was a thickset broad shouldered muzhik with little red eyes a red face and a profuse red beard His glance shifted uneasily from Hulin to Hardy By his side stood the little French man who sank his head between Lila shoulders like a turtle and stretching an accusing left arm toward Hardy shriekedI Felix Hulln I say mon dleut the great inventor the great benf o tor of tho human race Behold Is the proof If I tanh this horoI sphere on tho floor poof b r Tho whole house will fall apart a castle of cards the root will leap Into tho all In ono little second by gar wo shell all be In eternity Gentlemen am you convinced Sooner than

baseball which ho held In tho hollow of his palm I am Dr Hulln he added behold tho pill which I have prepared for tyrants anti spies About 20 of the brethren had stoon into the hall and were pressing for ward toward Hardy for these men all moved silently as though acc wtomed to secret and dan gerous meetings But at tho dreaded word spy a murmur arose A spy I A EPY Kill him tear him to piecesBut man who had welcomed Hardy In French stepped in front of them and raised his hand Sh Brethren ho commanded are you all mad Would you have the police down on us Tho spy is in our power If Indeed he is a spy and we shall know how to deal with him how to seal his lips As for you Brother Felix au not drop your pill In tho Virgins name Put it In your pocket Preserve It for tyrants and foes of mankind There Wo jbe breathe freer now Ivanto cabman what Is tho history of j man How did you happen tot bribe him hero 1 went to tho Slavlansky Bazar to get n slender dark man with eye glasses he explained who should give mo tho password for tho night The Princess Romnnovna This man came out hailed ino and gave mo tho password I bring him hero and then ten minutes later along comes this other slender dark foreigner with eyeglasses who It seems Is able to find his cwn way about That Is the truth Brother Blollnskl I call tho Virgin to witness and tho pious soul crossed himself Very well said Blollnskl a tall man stoopshouldered with thin hook nose and keen furtlvo eyes Very well May I ask my friend turning to Hardy whether you are a member of tho Brotherhood and if not why are you hero Tho explanation is very simple replied Hardy In French In which language tho question had been di rected I am an American merchant residing In Stryctcnsk I have an ac quaintance with tho Princess Ro But One Must I manovna on whom I about to call I told tho cabman to drlvo me to her residence and ho brought me here I know nothing of your amiable Brotherhood nor do I wish to learn anything Here ho took out his watch and consulted It coolly As we have no possible business together I will now bid you good night and proceed on my way If I do not hasten I shall bo too late for my call But why does ho not speak Rus sian 1 asked Ivan He spoke to mo in good Russian you understand Russian naked Bicllnskl I speak It Imperfectly replied Hardy I have been In tho country only a short time You speak It well enough to under stand exclaimed Blellnskl or you would not havo made so shrewd an effort to get away I am not sure now that you aro not a spy At any rate it will be a long time before you will see tho Princess Romnnovna Hardy noticed that the last two words were spoken with an emphasis of hate which reminded him of tho Christian voices at Stryctcnsk spit ting out Moschko Moschke Time Jew Tho Jowl Truly this Holy Russia Is a broeding ground for many violent hates Thoy all moved silently down to the extreme end ot the hull and passed through a door into a largo square room furnished with chairs and divans and a round table upon which were a nutrhir of books and maga tInes Crossing tS3 they entered tho council clamber a long narrow apartment with benches running around It and a long table In tho center with chairs placed for about 20 people Tho Encmleb of Russia seated them selves on tho benches and at the table Dlcllnskl who was evidently tho chairman took his place at the head of the table Felix Hulln after taking the terrible sphere from his pocket and laying It carefully on the tablo on a tiny couch formed of his crumpled I handkerchief removed his coat and hung it upon n nail He then took Ids seat by Invitation at Biolinskla rightBrethren said the latter rising of tho Society of tho Enemies of Russia Ho spoko very distinctly but not loud Tho most absolute sl lence prevailed First we must de cide what to do with this man who has Introduced himself Into our midst and has learned tho secrets of tho order Though I do not personally believe him to be a spy though i am confident ho was brought hero by ac- cIdent yet ho Is not of us and ho Is n friend of the haughty and wealth pampered aristocrat whoso name forms tho password of the evening Ho was on his way to her residence when ho was brought hero During this tlmo Hardy remained standing with his opera hat beneath his elbow and his ulster thrown over his arm Ills eyes were fixed on the little ball In Hultns handkerchief which shining In tho gas light hold IThee Is Way He Die was Do his gaze with a strange fascination like tho baleful eye of a snake What Is his nationality asked ono of tho brethren lie says that he is an American replied Blollnskl Tho Americans said tho question er are a powerful nation If wo should detain this man who Is him self evidently an aristocrat and has friends they would raise heaven and earth to find him and there would bo much publicity and discussion a thing that wo wish to avoid now Tho same thing would result If he should permanently disappear Hero ho sat down and silence reigned for a full mInute There Is much truth at length said Blellnskl in what Brother Smlr noff says Has any qthor brother any suggestion to make A young Russian arose a florid faced cleanshaven youth with blue eyes and a sweet expression Ills voice was soft and ho smiled as ho talkedHo must not disappear said tho speaker as Brother Smirnoff says neither can wo keep him Ho would be an elephant on our hands Neither would It bo safo to turn him loose with our secret In his brain and on his tongue It seems to me with all duo reverence to my eldersand here ho smiled end waved his hand that thero is but ono way Ho must dlo Ltd his body must bo found under such circumstances hat the pollco will bo led to believe ha has mot his fate through accident This will como under tho head not of an execution but of a necessary removal for tho good of tho order What method would you propose Brother Kourbskl Inquired Blelln ski There aro several methods that I I naturally suggest themselves replied Kourbskl expansively Hardys eyes I left the mesmeric spot and sought too speakers face For SmstaiKC he might bo chloro I formed and thrown Into tho Moskva thus giving tho impression that ho had fallen in and drowned or a fine needle might bo driven into tho base of his brain after which ho could bo dropped Into tho river or he could bo taken out to some lonely spot gagged of course to prevent an out cry stabbed or beaten to death and robbed Tho gags could then bo removed and this would cause the Im pression that ho had boon killed by footpads for his money and valuables Fortunately his attire that of a wealthy aristocrat would corroborate tho Impression These are merely suggestions of course Would It not 1 be well to decide officially on his fate and then appoint a committee to set tie tho manner of his removal Mr Kourbskl sat down and glanced about with a self sntlsfled air It Is time said Blollnskl rising and resting both palms on tho table to bring this Incidental discussion to 1ImportantIn hand The destruction of cocalled government and tho establishment ot universal freedom tho elimination of war oppression and tyranny and tho inauguration of general arid over lasting peace equality and hoodAs Bloltnakl spoke his face brotherIwith enthusiasm and his eyes with tho light of the dreamer Utopian Murmurs of through tho audience You know ho continued how we propose to accomplish this groat end Government Is merely a combination of tho strong and tho favored of the earth to oppress tho weak laws are simply canons for tho regulation of oppression All these timings aro un natural and artificial and aro built on a substructure of superstition Wo propose to render government Impos slblo by making tho governing probe sion so dangerous that no man will daro undertake it nut tho question now before us is this Hero is a man In our midst who Is not of us Ho ii a sympathizer with and a friend of our oppressors Ho came to us sup posing that ho was going to tho houso of tho Princess Romanovna and over heard our plans Ho has discovered our place of meeting Will It be safe to turn him loose after exacting n promise from him that he will not be tray us If such a promise can be ob talned or Is It your mind that ho be removed as Brother Kourbskl tug goats for tho good of tho Order In voting on this question you will bear In mind that the lIfo of any ono In dlvldual Is of small moment when t weighed In the balance against the general good of humanity Brother Smirnoff will pass among you hand Ing each one of you a white and n black marble a supply of which I havo hero and Brother Kourbahl will collect your ballots In a hat A black ballot will signify removal n white ballot lIfo and some other expedient Brother Smirnoff That member arose and stepped briskly to tho sldo of the chairman who took a number of marbles from a drawer and poured them into a hat Kourbskl followed him about with an other hat Into which the members dropped their votes In tho ghastly silence that reigned Hardy could hoar his heart beat plainly and tho marbles dropping dropping Into tho hat rattled llko paving stones falling from a height As Kourbskl stopped to the table and poured the marbles on tho American arose and IIttwitching at his place nez gazed open mouth A Mack stream from tho hat The ballots are all black an Wpounced the chairman I shall appoint Brothers Kourbskl Stanklotch and Golovlcv as n committee of three on ways and means Gentlemen you will retire Into the adjoining room Kindly reach your decision an soon an possible for thin as I have said U only an Incidental matter and we have much of Importanco before us The three members retired closing tho door softly behind them The dream was becoming reality Hardy

wrinkled ann dressed like dime novel heroes Why we wore Just boys most of us and trousers patched with flour sacks were more common than red sashes and fancy buttoned coats I remember we paid 30 a pair for heavy cowhldo boots to wear In tho ground sluicesthat was before rubber boots came along The oldest man In camp here In Weavcrvllle was short of 30 but wo called him the old man and one of my pardncrs never had any name but Emplro Mills because that was tho brand on the flour sack he happened to resent his breeches with Wo were Just a lot of rlp roaring young farmer boys turned loose In a country whero wo expected to shovel up gold like corn at home We didnt come to California to stay wo didnt think It was a white mens country anyway Every one of us expected to wash out a peek measure of nuggets and go back homo Wo used to say that tho host thing Undo Sam could do was to dig out all tho gold and give the country back to the Mexi cans Somo of us had soon lively times getting across the plains I had androdgedSaints bad It In for me and a lot moro of tho Gentiles nnd they would have paid us off In lead If they could have got the chance I got to Cali fornla In time to be Fortyniner

following Is taken from a consular report pub lished by Uncle Sam The consul tells of the awful annoyances caused by the mosquitoes in the suburbs of Calcutta Life wasnt worth living there until Mr Lefroy of the Indian entomological department Invented a mosquito trap which appears to have solved the problem The Invention consists of a box 12x9 Inches fitted with a hinged lid provided with n small opening over which moves a sliding cover The box Is lined with dark green balzo and has a tin floor The trap Is placed in a shady corner of tho room and the mosquitoes on entering tho house In the morning find the tay a delightful placo in which to sect lo themselves When the mornlngruoh of mosquitoes Is over a teaspoonful of boiulno is Inn jected into the box which promptly kills tho

the mir acles we are to study In his own city Capernaum lIe was fresh from two stupendous miracles tho stilling of the tempest on tho sea of Galilee and the healing of the Gadarcno de moniacs across the sea from Caper naumHow did Jalrus bring his petition to Jesus He put his whole soul into his prayer tho only kind of prayer that gets results lie worshiped him fall Ing at his feet and beseeching him much Mark He was pleading for his only child who was at the point of death Indeed when the ruler left the house she was so near death that he did not know whether to speak of her as dead or alive but in his die traction now called her dying and now as in Matthew even now dead The girl being in that desperate con dltlon how did Jalrus show his faith By urging that Jesus lay his hand upon her and she should live Faith for Ones SeUVs 2022 How did Jesus respond to Jalrus petition lie arose at once and followed him and BO did his disciples and a great multitude But how were they Inter rupted on tho way By another ap peal no les urgent because It was silentWhat was the trouble with this new petitioner She had suffered for 12 years with a bloody flux How did she approach Jesus She came behind him touched the blue and white tassels that hung from the four corners of his cloak What was the result She was cured at once and know that she was cured Faith for Another Vs 232C What test of Jalrus faith came as they ap proached his house Somo one ran to moot hIm telling him Mark and Luke that his daughter was dead How did Christ strengthen tho rulers faith By bidding him Fear not only believe and she shall bo made whole What was the process of tho miracle Very simple as in tho case of all ChrJsts wonderful works He merely took her by the hand softly said Talitha cum and the maid arose Comrades in FnltbVs 2731 When was the next appeal made to Jesus When ho dqparted thence from tho house of Jalrus or from Capernaum Who made It Two blind men whose lIke may be found In any eastern crowd to this day How did they make their appeal Not In a quiet reverential WilY like Jalrus nor with awed shrinking like the woman with an issue ot blood but they followed him persistently crying with Importunity like Bartlraacus Thou son of David have mercy on us Wo are not restricted to ono form of appeal In approaching our Lord but his ears are open to every cry What was Implied by this mode of address Son of David was a well known popular title of tho Messiah Out though Jesus often called him self Son of man and especially com mended those that called him Christ or Messiah he did not himself use the title Son of David as It Implied a deliverer of Israel from a foreign yoke and a ruler In Jerusalem and he seems not to have desired Its use by others Principal Oarvio See Inn ductive Study Why did Christ before healing them ask about their faith In him Be cause he wanted to show them the heart of the matter not his power Despisers of FulthVs 3234 What was the last case In this series of heal ing miracles A dumb man How did the spectators receive this miracle With entire amazement The cure of the dumb and deaf deafness being usually associated with dumb nesswas considered the most dim cult of all cures Why was faith a necessity before Christ could work his mlraclesl Be cause influence of all kinds cannot flow except along appropriate channels We would think a man a fool it he wanted electricity but refused to stretch a wire for It or if he wanted to conduct water from a river to his field and scorned to dig a ditch for It In the same way if a man wants knowledge he knows that It will flow into his life only along the channel of a clear and Industrious brain We must have faith In a man before we can enter into tho Joys of friendship suspicious question- Ing would nt once cut us off from him The divine Injunction Is Bo ye ready not Get ye ready Tho Christian Is to spend this life In liv ing nobly not In getting ready to die To persuade one

boats ot equality we do not understand Dr Bar ton to mean any lack of loyallty to the people of the mountains On the contrary his voice and pen have over been at their service and several years of his most earnest work was given to them i But test there be any misunderstand low of Borcas position wo state what we believe to ho Bercas position and in this WQ are confident all Bo roas friends Including Dr Barton DeIrenand have equal rights to Bercas opportunities and advantages It Is aI fortunate and providential fact that Berea moro than any other school brings together young peple ot the

between a taco horse and a work horse You would say that ho came from the city or else was not quite bright But really now what is the difference Ono good brother says It is a difference in the breed and sure he is right Did you ever see a 1FOO pound horse win a trotting race Not at a Kentucky horse race In all stock work you may feed as you will but you must have the breed to win Did you ever think of breeding corn If not Is Is time that you did Corn breeding is a real science and the farmer who does not practice It will soon be out of tho race The difficulty is that we dont know good corn when we see it Some of the points that distinguish well bred corn from scrub corn are as follows Ears uniform In size with rows of kernels extending well over the ends Rows of kernels straight and each row extending from end to end No kernels wedged In between the regular rows There should be no open spaces between the rows and the kernels should be tight In the row If the ear Is easily twisted you know that the kernels are not as tight on the ear as they should be Tho proportion of corn to the ear should be about 88 per cent To find this you first weigh the ear then shell the corn off and weigh the cob pr the corn Find what percent the total weight Is in the corn Itself If the entire ear weighs 17 ounces tho cob 2 and the corn 15 you divide 1G by 17 and get 882 percent Inryou lay sides

the ruling tho speaker had just made this motion would be per mitted to come before tho house Still a point of order was made against it and the Speaker announced that he did not know how to decide and asked the advice of the House It should bo remembered that the Speaker has three sources of power First he appoints the members ot the different committees Second he pro sides In the House and can refuse to t O 17 1 kernel should be as large as possible for this contains the more concentrated part of the food The kernel should be well tilled at each end so as not to taper off to a thin hard skinTho heart should be large and strong If when shelling you find that tho tip of the kernel stays In the cob leaving tho small end dark colored you may know that your sample has a weak heart and will not make a hearty plant If you find that several kernels on an ear break off in this way you should throw out the entire ear These points all pertain to tho Individual ear and kernel and by Improving the breed you Increase the number ot good ears How are you to begin breeding your corn to a higher type First select the best ears and plant on tho wind ward side of the field so that the polon will blow away from these se led rows cultivate thoroughly EO as to give them the best possible chance When the corn Is about to tassel you should go through the selected part of the field and cut out I all stalks that are not producing an ear or that look weak In any way Then cut the tassel out ot every other row This makes you sure cf cross breeding on the row where the tassel is removed Save seed only from the rows where the tassel la removed 1C you have two varieties that you wish to mix plant them in alternate rows and detasaol all of I one kind It is well to have just one acre In your seed patch and then I you can determine the yield Planting the hills 3 12 feet apart there are hills to tho acre The best yield 13556 has been produced with hiliI do the stock and you will find it responds to good cave and breeding permit any one he dislikes to make speeches Third ho Is chairman of the Committee on Rules This Com mitten governs the proceeduro of the House There are so many bills In troduced that the only way to got any business done Is to have some selected out Thin committee docs the l selecting And the Speaker rules It so thru It he manages the House bust ness Tho Norris resolution therefore struck at the very root of the Speak ers greatest power I The Speaker refused to make a i ruling on It for this reason There were not enough of his followers in the House to prevent his being beaten if a voto was taken If ho- made a ruling either way Mr Norris I would appeal to tho house and Can non would bo overruled again as he i had been the day before Ha refused to rule so as to give time for more of his supporters to come from their homes Somo were hundreds of miles away and the Speaker did not rule for nearly three days One session i lted all thru the night and there were many efforts of compromise no that the resolution was somewhat i changed but finally It appeared even to Cannono best friends that he was sure of defeat and so he mode his rulingThis I was the climax Tho man who had governed Congress was brought to his knees by the men ho had de rided lIe was forced to make the move which meant the stripping from him of the power he had held co jealously And he met tho crisis bravo ily and ruled against tho motion of course An appeal was taken and ho I was overruled Then there werq oth er motions and finally the resolution woo adopted by 191 to 155 votes Dur I ing the tight many men who want to stand with Cannon but knew led constituents were against him smoked out and had to join tho Insurgents They are now stronger than ever before by a considerable I numberAnd then our old Undo Joe did the bravest act of his life Beaten to the last ditch he announced that ho- I would entertain a motion to declare that the Speakershlp was vacantIn other words he dared his enemas to try to down him They took tho re but when it came to a vote all but seven of tho Insurgents voted In favor of the beaten chief and the vote In his favor was the same as it had been against him 191 to 155 Tho men who came back did not de sert Insurgencythey believed that they had destroyed Cannons power to do harm and they thought by voting for him they could reunite the party And here is where tho new trouble really began So far there has boon no wide split and many politicians I believed that the fight settled the trouble for this session and that Congress would now settle down and do tin work Tho insurgents were satisfied they had changed the rules The Cannon men were happy over his personal victory Everything looked rosy j Y + ri Yb But Cannon has spoiled it At a dinner Saturday night ho lost his temper and said what ho thought about tho men who had changed tho rules He seemed to have forgotten that they had paid him a great per sonal compliment a little later He colled them cowards and liars They dont like that and tho q CItion now In the air is What will they do about IU They have the power to oust Cannon entirely and set tho House Into such a row as will almost prevent all legislation this win ter They dont want to do thattIt is hoped that they will remember that the old man was sore and over lock bbut till they find out what the are going to do there will bo 1 ftw oulct nerves any where around hie There has been nothing loss than a revolution The Ring that has run j Congress Is broken and the Repre sentatives are taking back Into their own hands the power which had beer usurped by the Speaker This It but tho first of the groat changes wu fii are coming the balance of i power has shifted and we are now wh a tha Insurgents can go a long ways toward dictating They will take Nero ann more power They will probably soon come to dominate a large part of tho party organization Tic have a chance to make good thothey aro greatly handicapped But It has been a revolution How far will it go The Insurgent j were willing to stop here most of them They wanted to whirl In and get some business done and they 1 thought they had fixed things no I they could and now here comes Can non declaring war It is not In hu man nature to stand for an insult like that and if they do go on the war path again It Is likely that the 4 next battle will be far worse for all concerned There are no predictions Of course other things have been moving as usual There have been more witnesses who havo told about Balllngera lying There havo been I committee meetings and speeches on various bills but nothing has been done that Is very Important or In teresting Pres Tart has been away speech making He has cussed the newspapers for criticising him or any of his policies and the Insurgents for stirring up a row at a time when he wanted bills passed He has prov ed what we all know that he is honest and has the right idea of what hS wants done even If he does not pick tho best men to do It He Is all right except that he trusts too much to the wrong kind of I friends Particularity he has begged pledgedtheir Congressmen support

by the Republican regulars and by a small number in tho gallery Norrla Appeal Not Tabled Representative Norris of Nebraska appealed from tho decision and Rep resentative Dalzell moved to table the appeal A motion by Representative Gaines of West Virginia to adjourn was lost amid applause On tho first test of strength which came on the motion of Representative Dalzell of Pennsylvania to table the appeal of Representative Norris from Congressman Rodenberg the decision of the chair tho motion was defeated 181 to 164 Norris then moved tho previous question Thirty five Insurgents voted with the Democrats to defeat the Dalzell motion Insurgents Force the Fighting The insurgents agreed by unanimous vote to support the Norris resolution after amending It by striking out the geographical features and reducing the number of the proposed rules com mittee from 15 to 10 In his ruling Speaker Cannon sus tamed tho point of order against the Norris resolution holding tho resolution to be out of order Representative Norris appealed from the speakers ruling Mr Dal zell moved to lay the appeal on tho table The roll then was called Wild cheering on tho Republican sldo of tho houso greeted Speaker Cannon as ho mounted the rostrum It was said then Mr Cannon was determined to fight to tho death Soon afterward Representative Rodenberg a regular Republican member from Illinois declared he was for tho deposing of Cannon as speaker of the house If somebody makes tho motion he said with heat I will vote for Champ Clark for speaker I wont vote with those Hessians any longer The conference of regulars and In surgents failed to reach an agreement There Is no agreement and the fight Is on said Representative Nor rlsIt was said a finish fight on the floor of the house had been ordered Regulars Desert Cannon- A number of the most radical mom bers of tho insurgent faction were not concerned about what might happen to the speaker The Democrats of course were Interested only In Inflict

that tho present rules committee would bo overturned and a new com mittee selected by the house This was assured by the unbroken front presented by tho Democratic mi nority and by tho solid vote of

Democratic allies appeared deter- mIned to eliminate the speaker from the committee if not through the Norris resolution then through a compromise with tho regulars- It was reported early that the regulars had conceded the creation of an enlarged rules committee to bo elect ed by tho houso Instead of being ap pointed by tho speaker The Insurgents had conceded tho selection of the members of this committee by Republican and Democratic caucuses But tho factions wero unable to agree on tho question whether tho speaker himself should longer be a member of tho committee The insurgents insist

IN VENICE S OUIUSTS have been rushing from an parts of Enropo to Venice In tho last month to get there In UtIle for the Easter celebrationThoso plan to go to the beautiful city of canals and venerable architecture make special efforts to reach there at tho the Eastertide for tho most romantic nnd picturesque celebration of tho great spring holiday takes place In lam city of tho doges Easter in Venice Is unlike Easter In any other city in tho world and onco to bavo experienced the day hero Is never to forget It Easter St Marks and tho pigeons This Is the com bination that makes tho nprlng holiday specially Interesting At all seasons of tho year tho famous pigeons that stuff nnd stuff the food down their fatted crops till they can hardly waddlo are n magnet to tho crowd of Blghtscera but especially do they make tholr appeal at Easter time for they nro genuine Easter birds Years and years ago thoy hold tho samo rotation to tho Easter cuisine that eggs do In tho new world but that was before tho populaco came to the point of regarding them as something almost sacred Now no one would think of putting a finger on their smooth plumageFor moro generations than anybody knows the ad mired pigeons hnvo fluttered from point to point on tho Hatred architecture of St Marks They have mado their homes in nooks and crannies of the baalllca they havo built comfortable nests at tho feet of the famous bronzo horses over the portico In fact thero Is hardly a place in tho whole Impressive pile that has escaped tholr keen little oyes and been turned Into account pro viding It promised to afford a hospice Venice loves these plgeonr with a devotion that would bo amusing to the outside world were It not honestAnd especially docs It warm up to them at Easter tltino for It was thon according to the ancient tradition that they first came to In Marks According to the ancient story It was Palm Sunday that tho great dogo made a formal visit to tho Piazza San Marco With him came his entire brilliant suite of officials including tho foreign ambassadors residing In Venice The presence of this host of dignitaries the blare of tho silver trumpets that heralded their arrival and tho vrcwc r dcJ 32ear xmagnificence of tho procession deeply Impressed tho people so that all who could be accommodated filled up tho street and buildings populaco a manner that should bo remembered so had a largo number of pigeons each ono weighted by hating a piece of paper attached to Its legs released from tho gallery of St Marks over the portico where tho bronzo horses rear their gigantic bodies Tho crowd made a rush on tho pigeons eager to get tho choice meal they afforded and the unfortunate birds hampered by tho weights on tho legs were caught in largo numbers and taken homo to form tho feature of many a succulent repast Dut not all were caught Somo of them escaped and sought refuge high up in the dome of tho church where npno could come near them Tho fact that the birds found their hosplco In the very domo of the tomb of St Mark was not without Its effect on this highly superstitious populaco and they at once decided this to bo a token from thu good saint that his sheltering mantle was spread over tho birds nnd that nono of his true worshipers would do them hnrmIThus this early number of pigeons fluttering in fright to the top of the temple became tho forerunners of the multitude that flies around the church today Now they aro sacred from the profano hand of man and as an extra tribute It Is the habit at Eastertide tho annlver sary Of their recognition by tho saint to glvo them extra food and attention It Is for this reason that everybody who Is In Venice on Easter Sunday provides an extra supply of food for the pigeons of St Marks This docs not mean that they lack In povcndcr the remainder of tho year It simply means that the coming of tho holiday brings an extra supplyAnd the birds enjoy It None can say that they fall to enter Into the spirit of the holiday They gorge and stuff until It is a marvel that tho nlr Is not filled with feathers from the exploding bodies of the birds It Is not tho first ceremonial of the day this feeding of tho pigeons Not until the great morning service In St Marks has been held does the church permit tho holiday fun to begin In the morning everybody goes to St Marks that Is everybody who can get in which Is Quito a distinction for residents and visitors alike all think only of this ono church on tho most Important Christian holiday dP YiT yGLh17 O fql1rslbXPCr rNCSavrHO Ing Into the conduct of the village Whllo every scene In the play centers on Chris tus tho role Is not long in comparison with other speaking parts It Is the spirit ual tranquillity of Chrlstus which pervades tho whole play and Is more potent than the spoken word In stirring tho audience to a full realization of the teaching of tho play Among the peoples of tho earth except those of Australasia tho Americans are the most liberal meat cators oooooc ooc In fact tbo whole scene Is a rioting panorama of Mowers As In every other city of the civilized world where tho Christian religion Is supreme efforts bavo been concentrated to getting flowers Into tho city for the great day but under theso southern skies It Is not a question of forcing hothouso plants the natural giowth In tho open air supplies all that could bo asked and everybody rich nnd poor buys liberally of tho luaclous blooms In no other country In the world do tho blooms attain such magnificence and It is not an uncommon sight to see n

Venetian spring sky St Marks is outlined The wholo city Is going there Tho wealth and aristocracy of a city that was ancient when tho new world was in swaddling clothes Is making Its way to worship reclining against tho black cushions of the gondola and lolling in tho exquisite comfort that comes from this most lulling form of transportation The perfume of flowers Is in the air the beauty of the dark skinned browneyed and blackeyed daughters of the city of Desdcmona helps tho picture richly Everything IB comfortable romantic inspiring Tho service Is a wonderful display of rich raiment ff gorgeous processional of richest music of most bril liant coloring Easter hymns peal forth In most enchanting tones and the lover of tho beautiful finds every sense cajoled At two oclock in the afternoon tho yearly tribute of food is paid to tho pigeons and In some mysterious manner they seem to know the coming of the day that sees so much of honor done to them But It Is at night on Easter evening that the full beauty of tho Venetian lIfo and Venetian charm Is felt Every part of the cjty appears in a new guise every palaco monument and church takes on a glory that Is not to bo described Gliding past the gondolas filled with holiday pleasure seokcrs listening to tho ripple of tho waters under the bows of tho boats making calls on those living In the beautiful palaces fronting on the canals and reveling In tho atmosphere of romance that seems to surround every detail of the lIfo of this ancient city Is to get Impressions not to bo duplicated elsewhere Impressions that explain tho eagerness of tourist to spend an Easter day In Venice hi 1IfIr i The Weekly Easter In all the church calendar there Is no more joyous day thaa Easter day which commemorates tho resurrection of our Lord and Saviour from the dead And this Is as it should be for tho resurrection of Chrlut Is thu most vital and fundamental fact of tho life of Christ Had he remained in tho tomb his birth would have been forgotten long ago and Christmas greetings and joys would not exist Had ho remained 1 under tho power of death his death on Calvary would have been consid ered nothing more than that of a mere man like that of Socrates and others who have given their lives In attempts to uplift mankind against the forces that make for evil and that destroy the good But when he burst the bands of death asunder he gave the crowning proof of his Deity and added to Bethlehem and Calvary a significance and luster that will never grow dim There Is little wonder therefore that the Christian world has laid

Easter commemorates tho most vital fact in Christianity In these days It has been made an occasion for tho display of flowers and millinery but underlying all else Is the basal fact that Easter com memorates tho resurrection of Christianitys founder Christianity as a divino revelation stands or falls with tho establishment or overthrow of this fact If hs resurrection of the prophet of Galileo was not an actual- and accomplished fact then his claims to the spiritual leadership of mankind are spurious He based tho sue cess of his mission on tho fact of his resurrection If ho did not rise from the grave ho was a blasphemer or an Ignorant fanatic It he did rise as ho predicted he would then the seal of divine truth was upon all he taught and all ho wrought Thero are many who cannot believe In the miracle ot tho resurrection For them the Easter celebration is all foolishness But multitudes believe with unfaltering faith In this triumph of the Godman over death and the graveTo them Easter Is a day of cheer hope and joy The basal fact of Christianity gives foundation and force to their faith and their hope More joy bells will peal forth their notes of victory today more glorious anthems and oratories will break forth from human hearts and voices moro human tongues will speak and sing tho praises of humanitys Christ than at any time since tho angels said to tho affrighted women at the gateway of tho tomb Ho is not hero he is risen as he said come see the place where they laid him Tho Christian faith is too deeply rooted ja tho heart of humanity ever to dlo
