The "constitutional htiusa" having ad
journed over until .Monday, Speaker
Douglass came home to look after his
private businees. When met by an EAGLE
lcpresentativehe was not'mnch inclined
to be interviewed as ho haid he was "talk
ed out." However, when asked to explain
the legislative hituation he said:
"The fourth week of the session has
ended and not a bill has yet become a Iftw.
A mio&rity of fifty-six members with a
dozen outsiders are still pretending to be
u house of representatives; hut, so far, the
men who are managing this body have
not allowed it to attempt to pass a single
bill of any kind.
"The legal house, with sixty-nine mem
bers, is at work from dy to day doing all
thebuiiness which r. house of representa
tives c-in do without the co-operation of
the senate. It has alieady passed
se-eral hills aud is proceeding with its
work. It proposes to do its duty no mat
te what the senate may do or not do. But
sooner or later it is evident that the senate
will either have to do business with it or
not do any business at all.
"Intelligent membets of the Populist
party nearly till admit, in private, that
their minority "bouse" is an illegal body;
and every one of their leaders whose ad
vice is disinterested or otherwise worth
having, tells them the same thing. Still
they keep up the farce because they don't
know how to get out of the hole they have
gotten into. The members of the consti
tutional honse" aio standing solidly to
gether, and it seems to be merely a ques
tion of time as to wheu the minority body
wili topple over.
"I think the present idea of the
governor and Mr. Dunsmore is to
go through the form of passing
a lot of buncombe legislation,
with the full expectation that the moment
any of it gets into court the whole mass
will be toppled over, tis not having been
passed by the legal house of repre-enta
tives. Au extra session will then havo to
be called to do the woik which should
have been done at this session. In that
event the pretended honse would at ouco
vanish ana such of its members us were
actually elected wonld come into and
work with the majority body. This, of
course, involves a good deal of expense,
and the taxpayers will thus have to toot
the bills of the attempted revolution.
"This seems to be the probable outcome
of the situation, unless enough consci
encious and courageous men can be
found among the Populists to step
out and end the business in
which they know they are wrong.
There are several whom I know personal
ly who would like to do this, but who feel
compelled for party reasons to stand by
the leaders who got, them into their pres
"Strong efforts have been made lately to
induce some of the members of the legal
house to desert aud go over to the minor
icy, but without success. It would take
the loss of seven members to reduce our j
number below sixty-three, which
number necessary for a quorum. Emis
saries from the other sida havo been re
buffed at very point. Xot one traitor has
yet been found, much less sevon; and with
the complete failure in this direotion there
13 an end to all hope of ever making a
lei.nl body out of the revolutionary rump.
"Democrats, Republicous and Mr. Wil
son (the Independant) are all standing
united and determined in defense of the
constitution and the laws. We are all
anxious to get to work at needed legisla
tion, but all recognize tho necessity of

from the revolutionary assault which has
been made upon it.

The Barrett Dramatic club are using all
their efforts to make their entertainment
ot Monday nizht a success, and no doubt
will do so. They have been paying strict
attention to lehoarsals and working very
hard to this end.
In view of the fact that "The Merchant
of Venice" has not been played here for
years it will, no doubt, have the effect of
bringing out a good house.
The club is certainl y deserving of patron
age, for they have already j;iven one very
good entertainment frte, which gave us
some idea what they could do. Wo hear
very good reports of Will Campbell aud
Miss Meva Wainwright, and as they are
cast for the two most prominent parts in
the play, we have no doubt that they will
acquit themselves creditably. The intro

brella, and just as I was drawing him
in I felt a hand on my shoulder and. a
hearty voice said:
"Well done! I'll see that you have a
life-saving medal for that."
It was Mr. Windom. He was on his
way to a cabinet meeting, but the af
fairs of state and the country's finance
had to wait while he assisted at the
rescue of the half-drowned bird.
He took the bedraggled little creature
in his hand, and after smoothing ita
plumage laid it on the sunny terrace
out of harm's way to dry. Then, invit
ing me to share his big green sun shade,
we walked on to the white house.
A Noted Doctor on tho UaehivaJrlo Con
duct of Ills Countrymen.
Louise von Kobell, who is Frau von
Eisenhart, has written a book of "Con
versations of Dr. DoHinger," lately
translated into English, from which tho
Daily 2'ows of London has taken ex
tracts. Driven into an inn by a shower
in one of their walks, he was greatly
annoyed by the conduct of some young
men, who swore at tho weather, smoked
and called impatiently for beer.
"Tobacco p.nd alcohol are demoniacal
powers," said Dollinger, half in jest and
half in earnest. "Smokers are barbar
ians. . . . The eternal smoking of
pipes and cigars by our forefathers
doubtless helped to bring about the
short sight which has now become he
reditary in Germany. Tobacco smok
ing is the ruin of society and of chival
rous conduct toward women."
Talking of tho German love of public
houses, he said: "When I compare our
young men with joung Englishmen
t what a difference I find! How many
spectacle-wearing, weakly, uncouth,
mannerless youngsters I see here, while
it is a real pleasure only to look ut tho
boj's and students in England, so vigor
ous, healthy, well grown, clean and dis-tinsruished-looking
in their attractive
At another time he said that if ho
were a legislator the first law he would
introduce in Germany would be one for
the protection of young girls. England
and America were, he said, in advance
of Germany in the treatment of women.
"For instance," he added, "I hardly
think that an educated Englishman
would allow his wife to fetch him his
boots, slippers, oigar3 and newspapers,
as do so many of our countrymen.'
TURKEY HUNTING IN ARIZONA.
Th Great SlanRhtcr Jnst Before Thank-
The Arizona hill of fare is too apt to
contain only tho items bacon, beans,
hard bread, flapjacks and coffee threo
hundred and sixty-four days in the
year. Thankugiving is the exception,
and no dinner is complete on that day
without a turkey to remind the miner,
prospector or ranchman of tho old
home in the east. In the Boutheastern
section of. the territory there is a creek
called Rio Prieto, and niclcnamed the
"Turkey river." It is tho only place
within about two hundred miles where
wild turkeys abound, but then there
are enough of them in the narrow val
ley to stock a state.
Just before Thanksgiving this valley
is tilled with hunters from every part
of the territory, and the slaughter is
very great; but it takes place only
once j. year, and the ranks will be filled
up next spring and summer. Some of
the hunters come so far that they
have to make "jerky" of the turkey
meat in order to get it home. Amincr
mut be very fond of turkey when he
will travel one hundred miles for it,
and then take it in the shape of salted
and sun-dried strips and shreds, and
usually fried in a gravy of bacon,
greae and flour.
These turkeys are very large birds,
as half a dozen are about as much as a
pack -mule can carry oat of the valley.
Old-timers say that gobblers weighing
thirty pounds have been taken out of
the Prieto canyon.

acid is composea or suen tilings as ani
mal refuse and blood solids, with largo
quantities of oil of vitriol. Even tho
smell of the acid produces pain in the
throat and in the region of tho heart,
and there are few poisons for which
there is such little opportunity for an
antidote. If tlwre is time, and there
seldom is, for the poison is almost in
stantaneous in its action, ammonia, in
haled very froely may give relief aud
reduce the absolute certainty of death
to a grave possibility.
