CONGRESS IN SESSION
The short session of the Sixty

high glee because of the results of
the recent election, and the Repub

during the present session.
Tuesday President Taft sent to
the Senate a! oul t wo hundred nomi?
nations for various positions under
the government, one hundred being
postmasters! ips. There is a possi?
bility tint they will not be conti rm

seeking the co-operation of the Re?
publican progressives to block con?
>ome of the nominations are for
offices from whick RooseTalt Repub?
licans were ousted, and naturally
the Democrats are meeting with
The anti-confirmation movement,
headed by Senator (lore, is based
upon the ground that thc nomina?
tions hive been postponed from time

necessarily close to a Democratic
administration. Democratic Sena?

has deprived the Democrats of the
privilege ol appointing fifty thou
sand postmasters by placing them
within the civil service law by ai

whether they would rather see bim
Virginia's ..ext Chief Executive or
in a Cabinet office under the admin- '
istration of President-elect Wood?
row Wilson, whose candidacy for
both the Democratic Presidential
nomination and election received
Mr. Tucker's active and strong sup?

The Thanksgiving collection for
the benefit of the Hospital amounted
to 181, to which has been added
other gifts, bringing the total np ti.
something like $130. The plan has
boen to use the Thanksgiving col?
lection for beating tho Hospita
this winter, and so this statement is

the gifts of the many who were not
present at the uuion service.
lt is estimated that $150 or *lm)
?rill pay tbe fuel bill for the Hos
pital this winter. Kighty-one dol
lars is notvinhand for that purpose.
not counting the special gifts that
hiive been made since for other pur
POSSS. So that *??;<) or $70 is still
needed. Will not the friends of the
Hospital supply that amount'.'' Mr
Adair will handle the fund.
