CHAT OF THE CORRIDORS.
At 'tlte close of business laist Sat unlay tho
I old rrosurvo iu the Treasury was $101, IDS, COT.
BeprofontMtive Mercer tells a story of the
late John A. torlsorill during Lis trip through
Japan tHttiic months before he died. Cock ei ill
-as thoti -ar correspundcut for a New York
jaj.or. Iteprcsontattves of all lisaioiia gathored
it Y-rikntiMfiia, many of Ihom tourists and others
)h Lufvitiuss. It was at this tiino that Cockerill
tan across a cwkticy Briton, who was boast
ing about tlio great prowe&s of his country and
making rather Blighting allusions to theUnitcil
States. His remarks arpused Cockerill's war
ipirit, and he told the Englishman that inas
much as the United States had twice whipped
England it could probaLly do so again. ' Oh
ah my dcah sab! "said the doughty Briton,
"you ah mistaken, surely. If I rcmembah the
history of my country we took yah Capitol ami
burned it, dou't you know?" "Yes," suitl
Cockerill, "you did take -the Capitol. And if
IrcmcmLortLeListory of my country, you also j
took Bunker HilL, But you didn't take it i
very far. You let go Loth of them liko a red-
hot brick, and at last accounts they woro still
in our possession. But let me tell you what
we'll do next timo wo havo a war with you.
Wo'll fro ovor there, tow your suug little island
merest tho Atlantic, and haul it up tho bay to
Xcw York for a wharf." Tlio Englishman did
cut cuutinuo the argument.
One set of men at least among lhc employes
at the Capitol are glad Congress has adjourned.

Up ia within a few minutes of the liiMe tho

after detail of his private and public business.
When fheiosBion begins Jlr. ttcn&ler goes first
on tho floor of tho fccnate, there to report the
routine morning bushier?, with all of its intri
cacics. This iuciudes the introduction of hills,
TOsolutioueaud orJers, tho presentation of pe

for the day, and j.ll the important routine busi

tlie lugielaliro record of llic day, so far as the

Eeoora of that purl ion of the session is oltcn

It is said at the Treasury Department that
the late Congress paid -more careful attention
to tbo iiavation iavrs of the conntry than has
lfiy Congress for 15 years. An import-.utstep
J was the reconvening of tho-Amorican delegates

He toon got the reputulitm of an objector of

tfkod for unanimous eminent to consider a

terior to rcaunic work -upon and itue pnlcots
to tho Union Pacific Railway Company with
out delay to all lands ld by that company to
hona-fido purchasers in woetern Nebraska,
J North Dakota, Wyoming, and Utah. As Mr.
Kent's couttituuts are much iutetCAtcd in this
J hill, it was nccossxvy for hitu either to sur
render or object to a bill tl.ut tbty wanted
passed. After a little lusilatiou he concluded
to object, and Mr. Mundell roie to a question
of porsonal privilogr, espiaiuiug that fi.OOO ot
the 25,000 people interested in thu hill resided
iu Mr. Krm's District. These remarks tho
Nebraska Populist ktronuously endeavored to
have stricken from the llecord, on the ground
that Mr. Mutidcli's point didnot couslituto a
question of privilege.
On another occasion, when a fierce wiud and
rain storm swept over the city, the members of
the House rushed out to the south balcony to
witness its olivet. Thu air was filled with fly.
Sag fragments, the urcht trees in the Capitol
Grounds wero bending hoforo tho storm, and
half a bundled Rt'precntativi-s stood watching
the awe-iuspiring scene with rapt interest.
Suddenly thcbtilluoss was Lrokcn Ly Cou-iiiE,
of Iowa. "1 know bow to stop all this," said
lie, waving his hand outward toward the war
ring elements. Every eye was turned upon
him in eager expectancy. "Cull Kern out and
tell hitu to otyoct," and thuu cvciybo!y
laughed, for Kcm had been objecting to every
thing iu Biub- for a fortulght past.
Tho firef session of tho 54th Concrcss, which
has just closed, Las passed" into history as tLo
hardest-working, most busincss-liko session in
tho historyof fcojigross. No timo was wasted
over anything. TJ10 committees put iu good
solid work over the matters ontrustod to them,
and brought forth fruits according. There was
unusually liltlo "talking for Buncombe,"
nothing spectacular, nothing sensational. Tho
manager of a groat factory could not ltavo boon
more relentlessly businoss-liko than Speakor
Beoif was from tho day that he was escorted to
tho chair till the hour when his gavel fell an
nouncing tho closo of the sessiou. The Ropre
scutatives had assembled to do tho work of tho
people, and ho was as determined as they woro
willing that they should do it.
The estimates sent in by tho various Depart
ments at tho beginning of tho session involved
appropriations amounting to $529,134,193.92.
Tho appropriations actually mado foot up
$515,709,320.49, a reduction of $13,374,373.43.
This reduction was only mado by tho moat
careful scrutiny of every item, and saving a
dollar anywhere and everywhere that it could
he done. This involved an immense amount
of hard work in tho committees, but it was in
dustriously and conscientiously done. It was
tho strongest contrast to tho wildcat, haphaz
ard way in which legislation was managed in
the preceding Congress.
One of tho big items in tho appropriations
wliich could not be pared down was $11,492,
G1G for interest on tho increased public debt
created by this Administration.
Having nothing Letter to do ono day last
week, a correspondent in the Senate press
gallery addressed a note to Senator Stewart re
minding him of an omission. He had pretty
successfully connected everything in ancient
and modern history with " tho crime of 1S73'
except tho execution of Charles I. in 1618. Ho
ought to try to work that in beforo tho session
closed. The noto was sent down to Senator
Allison, who laughed over it with somo other
Senators beforo handing it to Senator Stewart,
whose rubicund face grew a little redder. Ho
stroked his long whiskers, but said nothing.
I have beforo spoken of Sonator Red field
Proctor's dry, caustic Yankee wit, which is be
coming famous. He was told a little while ago
that Whitelaw Reid would not take tho Vice
Presidency because hi3 health rondorcd a dry
climate necessary to him.
"Then I should think the Senate tho very
place for him," remarked the Souator from tho
Maple Sugar State.
Speaker Reed did not leave the city during
the Convention, but remained here, finishing
up the woik on his desk. Senator Allison wont
to his homo at Dubuque, and Senator Cnllom
went to his home iu Illinois.
Ex-Secretary Richard W.Thompson, of Indi
ana, last week celebrated his S7lh birthday,
and this -week he was at St. Louis, at tho head
of tho Indiana 3olegation. Ho is six months
older than Gladstono and six ycaTS older than
Jlismarck. He has been in public life over GO
years, and has taken part in IG Presidential
campaigns. Ho was an elector for Gen. Win.
Henry Harrison in JSiO. and was Secretary of
tho Navy under Haye. Ho gives as the Bccrct
of his longevity that ho never dissipated, par
ticularly in the way of eating. Ho has always
been very temperate as to the kind and quan
tity of food that he ate.

The earnest efforts of the ladies of Depart

Johnson President, to develop a moro general
and cordial celebration of Flag Day iu tho Dis
trict of Columbia, are every year crowned with
higher success. Last Friday was celebrated as

There was a unique representation of tho re
pudiation of the stamp act, by a number of
boys from Polk School, altirod in Continental
costume. This was a play of their own com
position, and evoked great applause.
Miss Josephine Faulkner gained applause by
her bingiiiK of "Old Glory." Little tots from
tho Ftanklin School, arrayed in white and
carrying small American flag?, gave tho inspir
itm Bellamy flag salute.
The Orpheus Octet, led by Prof. J. M. Lay

SYMBOLISM OF THE FLAG.
Atltircss Ly John aicTSIroy, Commander or
the Department of tho Potomac, G.A.K.,
nt Washington, D. C., on Ting Day.
Tho human mind turns eagerly to emblems
and symbol?. Thoy seem essential nnd iiero
sary to it. Thoy aro tangiblo foundations for
intangible- thoughts. Thoy are something liko
St. Paul's definition of faith: ''The substance
of things hoped for,-the ovideuco of things uot
Memories cling around them, lovo idealizes
them, lofty aspirations bourgeon and blossom
from them, liko flowers from the naked stalks
which tho Winter has left.
Next to tho cross of Christ our Flag is tho
most potont symbol thnt to-dny floats hoforo
tho oyes of men. It has a decpor meaning to
groatcr hosls than any cmblom outside those of
religion. Next to them it can summon tho
greatest number of gallant, devoted men to
the highest daring and solf-sncrifico.
Out of every 20 men who inhabit this earth,
one proudly owns his allegiance to tho Star
Spanglcd Banner. Tho oilier 19 aro divided
among several hundred banners. Our Flag is
sovorcign ovor 0110 full tenth of tho earth's dry
Tho highest function of a symbol is its scrv
ico as a guide-post for tho path of duty. His
tory is eloquent as to how well our Flag has
fulfilled this exalted function.
Tho century and a quarter since it was born,
amid tho throes of tho struggle for liberty and
National existence, has been infinitely tho
most momentous period iu tho world's history.
If we represent the progress of tho world since
tho birth of Christ by a yardstick, tlio first
inch upon it would measure tho j.rogress up
until the time of the appearance of our Flng;
the remainder would show what mankind has
accomplished and gained since. Wo live in
deeds aud not in years, and measured by them
humanity has lived and done inconceivably
moro in tho lilth century than in all tho 18
wliich preceded it.
The christening of our Flag was tho thun
dering declaration to a King-ridden, priest
ridden, feudal lord-ridden world that ''all
men aro created equal and endowed by their
Creator with certain inalienable rights, among
which aro Life, Liberty, and tho Pursuit of
Happiness." At this trumpet sound tho en
slaved and oppressed millions of every land
and tnncuo raised thoir sad eyes to see tho day
of Freedom stand lip toe on tho misty mountain-tops
of the future. Aud around that Flag
they saw a band of stern ly-r.csolu to men, who
solemnly pledged their lives, thoir fortunes,
and their sacred honor to making that decla
ration gloriously good. Through all tho six
score momentous years sinco then, whilo the
history of Europe has been changing like a
kaloidcoscopc, they havo seen that Flag main
tained steadfastly as tlie highest symbol of tho
largest liberty, the truest fraternity, the most
sincere equality, the most rigid justice that tho
mind of man can conceive. Under its benefi
cent folds manhood has been rising to that
stature which God intended it should take
but little lower than tho angels.
Elsewhere tho tide of progress might ebb for
a space; revolutions might for awhile go hack
ward ; tho tyrant might re-forgo his fetters;
the opp.essor might regain his power. But tho
Star-Spangled Banner always went forward,
lis trumpets had no notes for tho retreat only
for the advance.
This is its symbolism for tho 70,000,000
of people who cherish it in their heart of hearts.
Its sacred blazonry represents to thein 12
decades of glorious development of humanity.
It represents to them lit'tlo hands of earnest,
devoted, God-fearing men and women, Jeaving
ail that ancestral homes, kindred and civiliza
tion had to hold them, to dare the terrors of a
savage-haunted wilderness to establish there
communities iu which humanity could bo
higher, freer, and holier lhat. uudor the pesti
lential shadows of Old World institutions. It
represents struggles of tho utmost heroism with
every form of danger, with pestilence that
stalked at noon-day. with the merciless toma
hawk of tho savage, tho pitiless sword of white
enemies, with tlio unsubdued forces of Nature.
It represents to them triumph over all of these
savages defeated aud well-nigh extirpated;
white enemies driven from every foot of our
soil, and a coritinc.it subdued to tho uses of
men for happy homes nun thu development ot
great enterprises for tho benefit of all mankind.
Carping critics sneer at the lovo of tho Flag as
sentiment merely. ;Cortyinly, it is only senti
ment. These purblind caviiers scorn unable to

a man has thu nearer ho is to tho brute; the
more, tho higher he is in tlie scale of manhood.
Religion, lovo of justice and right, of parents,

merely sentiments. Not tmly tho individual

sentiment into what they arc, and sentiment
moves masses of mankind with tho resistless
energy of tho cyclone aud earthquake in tho
Tho symbolism of our Flag is moro authori
tative than any commands moro inspiring
than any eloquence of words.
In tho rhill mists of the morning a regiment
of infantry lines up on its Flag and looks with
anxious oyes upon a neighboring hill-top, ser
rated with breastworks, bristling with shining
rille-hnrrels, frowning with black-muzzled'
cannon, swarming with the insolent foe.
Thither thoir Flag must go, and thither must
they follow it, though that hill-top he tho
mouth of hell, and though thoro ho as many
horrors aud devils thoro as there aro leaves
upon the trees. Tho thousand men who touch
elbows to tho right and loft of tho Flag aro
plain, ordinary hoys, products of American
homes, American school-rooms, American
churches. They nro hoys with fathers and
mothers, sisters and sweethearts back in tho
homes whence they cam 0. Thoy mako liltlo
protenso of being soldiers. War is uot a trado
they love. It is a vocation forced upon them
by convictions of duly, Thoy do not swagger
or boast, and many of the characteristics popu
larly ascribed to soldiers are absent from that
crowd of ordinary young Amoricann. For all
thai, they aro incomparably tlio finest soldiers
that ever stood upon tho battlefield.
For minutes of anxious expectancy that
scorn to lengthen into hours, thoy leau upon
their rifles and gazo at thu enemy, and at tho
flag floating above their heads. What tho next
15 minutes may havo iu store for them God
alone know.". Every 0110 may bo standing
before His judgment-seat within that timo.
Many will certainly ho thoro. That matters
uot to them. Duties aro theirs; consequences
aro God's. They merely feel that as Americans
hnvo always followed that fllfg wherever it Jed,
so must they, whatever befall. With it Ho
honor, duty, manhood; away from it, shame,
ignominy, disgraco worse than death.
Tho order comes, " Forward Guido on tho
Colors March!" and the lino sweeps onward.
Tho black-mouthed guns bellow angrily, and
shells bursting with a terrific crash tear great
gaps hi tho lino. They aro closed instantly by
tho survivors pressing inward toward thu Flag.
Nearer, and tho infernal hall of canister luir
tlc? and shrieks through the- living wall, tciir
itigaud rending, mutilating and slaying. Every
minuto the line shortens by tho living closing
into the places of the fulleu. Hvcr forward
goes tho Flag, though one-third of those who
started ate lying on the bloody slopo. Then
begins tho deadly, searching hail of tho riHos,
not so noisy as the cannons, but vastly more
terrible. Men droit ami thu lino shortens at
every step, tho color-bearer falls, but beforo tho
Flag touches tho ground another gallant hand
hears it aloft and forward. The divino fjiry of
battle swells every heart to point of bursting.
On! On! Ovor tho djlch, up tho slippery
hanks, into the swarming masses of cnomy, for
mad, delirious Woik with bayonet and clubbed
musket. The Flag is over foremost, ovor tho
storm-center into .which men rush; whoro
Death rides tho whirlwind, and his sicklo is
lightning swift, sweu'pliig Into eternity alike
the men who boar tho Flag aloft and those who
strike at It.
But liko reeds beforo tho tempest the
enemy is beaten down by tho fury of tho
assault, and yields. Tlysn tho Flag floats iu
triumph from the highest point, nnd deep
voiced cheers, welling Irom hearts still burning
with tho fruuzy of battle, announce victory.
The dying on tho bloody slope hear and echo
with their sinking voices, as their gallant
spirits pass away to Ilim who gave them.
Greater lovo hath 110 man than this: that ho
give his lifo for thnt which ho lovoth. An
inconceivably greater number of men havo
given thoir lives for our Flag than for any
other that kisses tho breeze. What higher
symbolism has earth than this?

Salmon served with cream sauce is a pleasing
variation from the usnal salmon with lemon or
salmon salad. Open tho can early in the day.
Drain off all tho oil nnd take out every bit of
boue, skin or fat, and with a fork break the
salmon into ilno pieces. Make a cream sauce
by rubbing together a table-spoonful of flour
and a little less of butter. Melt this in a chaf
ing dish or double boiler, and. add to it a cup
of sweet milk. Let this cook until it begins to
thicken, then add tho salmon, peppor, salt-and
tho juice of ono lemon. Let it all cook for five
or 10 minutes, so that tho seasoning and the
sauce may get mixed thoroughly through the
fish, and then 3urvo hot. This is also a ploas
ant mixture Cor sandwiches.

We all remember tho days of cardboard "air
castles" and "match-boxes," and are glad that
they are no more, and there were lamp-mats of
white crotchotted calla lilies with yellow
crochetted spadixes, for tho parlor, and violet
colored crotchotted lilies for tho sitting-room;
and wo aro glad they aro gono. White wax
flowers, too than which nothing except death
itself is more deathly havo departed, and the
children who pilfered tho petals for chowitig
gum havo grown to bo men and women who
do not provide wax flowers for thoir offspring.
The crazy-quilt era and the era of "applique"
plush parreics and roses ha3 just departed, and
we do not long for it again; but the present
craze for paper flowers Is almost as bad. Car
nations that aro so skillfully mado that they
just mis3 being beautiful; roses without scent
or foliage or grace, bnt with true enough color
ing, are scattered in all the homes about us, and
their very success makes them hateful to look
upon. Now, there is a faint talk of "fish-scale
flowers," with directions for making. Thoy
are all so wearying.
Perhaps wo need these stops in our progress
towards a truo appreciation of art and a
general higher culture. Wo can look back
on the past ugly efforts with somo satisfac
tion that wu know better now. But for women
of this day and generation who laugh nt tho
cardboard works that their grandmothers
wrought, to make fish-scalo flowers seems n
doliberato step backward into crudeness and
ignorance. The porpetrators of these tlowera
say, aggravatingly, "They look quito pretty."
Embroidery ju3t now is simple and artistic,
aud if a woman aspires toward decoration, lot
her stick to her needle, and remember that
beautiful ucodlework is prized from ono gener
ation to 'another, and is not like many of theso
decorative fads that grow hateful to tho eyo
within a decado. There aro certain arts that
havo pro von themselves, and of those needle
work is one. Thoro seni3 to bo an everlasting
dcerec against artificial flowers for houso deco
ration, for none aro truly beautiful nor success

The usual statcmont regarding the expendi
tures of Congress during tho session just closed

000,000 i3 for sinking fund and SUO.500,000 for
interest on tho public debt, or $3,355,(iM moro

the bonded indebtedness of the country by tho
present Administration up to February, 1895,

count of the lator bond issue of $100,000,000 in
February, 1S0R, amounting to $4,400,000, not
being included in tho estimates of permanent
appropriations as stated and submitted to Con

The increase in tho principal of the interest
bearing debt of the country under tho present
Administration, by tho loans negotiated iu
