FROM THE NATION'S CAPITAL.
From Our Own Correspondent.
Washington, D. C, Jan. 27,1003.
The D?mocrate of the House greatly
disappointed the Republicans by hold
ing a perfectly harmonioua party cau
cus last Tuesday, the action of which
waa confined to the adoption of the
resolution reported by the committee
appointed at the December caucus. It
would have been Bimply playing into
thehandB 01 the Republicans for the
Democrats in caucus to have attempted
to make a party platform. It will be '
more than two years before the next |
Democratic National Convention will I
be held, and it will be the duty of the I
delegates to that convention to forma- !
late the platform upon which the party I
will stand in the next national cam- I
paign. The Congressional campaign
ia much nearer, and the first duty of
Democrats is to see that a Democrat is I
returned from every District now rep- i
resented by a Democrat and from j
enough Districts now represented by I
Republicans to give the Democrats
control of the next House?a task that i
is likely to be made easier by the j
Roo&ovelt administration and the Re
publican majority in Congress.
That Mr. Roosevelt can dodge upon !
occasion was shown when he turned j
Schley's appeal over to Attorney Gen- |
oral Knox and asked that he go over it
and make a recommendation. Mr.
Roosevelt may regard this as a very
clever way for him to evade responsi
bility, bnt the- people will hold him,
and not Attorney-General Knox, re
sponsible for what action betakes upon
the appeal of S?hley. Rear Admiral
Schley isn't losing any sleep over whe t
Mr. Roosevelt may do with his appeal.
Accompani:; l by Mrs. Schley he left
Washington Friday for Chicago, where
the ovation he received down South
will be duplicated. Judging from
Schley's talk, it will not be possible to
axcel it in earnest enthusiasm and good
will. And the people everywhere feel
Lhe same way.
Representative Stephens, of Texas,
las introduced a bill providing for the
Konsolidation of Oklahoma Territory
vnd the Indian Territory into the State
Senator Bacon gave the Republicans
i few sharp whacks in a speech against
;ho Philippine tariff bill, for their "hot
laste" in pressing the bill and for their
ifforts to withhold from the Senate in
formation relating to the Philippines.
Representative Lever, of South Caro
ina, is the youngest man in the House,
ind he looks muoh younger than he
eally is. He is twenty-seven, but he
vould have no trouble in passing for
wenty, if he wished to do so. "He does
t without vishing sometimes, as a lit
tie story that haa just become public
shows. It happened when Mr. Lever
first took his seat. The House official,
who gives notice to those not entitled
to the privilege of the floor to getont
just before the opening of the sessions,
had noticed a boyish-looking fellow
for several days who didn't ?v.y the
slightest attention to the notice. Fi
nally the official approached Amos
Cummings, remarking in a nettled
tone: "If that boy don't get out of
hero before 12 o'clock I'll throw him
out." "Whatboy?" atved Cummings.
; "Sitting ovoi there,1' replied the offi
I cial, pointing to Mr. Lever. "I wouldn't
I throw lu m out." said Cum min jib "Why
I not?" 'Becauao, you might low your
job. F.e ia a member of the House."
A delegation of TexanB made ah
argument before the House Committee
on Rivers and Harbors last week in
favor o an appropriation for the con
struction of a ship canal from the
mouth jf Sabine and Neeohes Rivers
to SaKne Pass, a project that has been
strongly endorsed by all the commer
cial organizations in Texas.
It is to be hoped that the Senate will
get the facts asked for in the resolu
tion adopted calling on the Secretary
of War for full information as to the
number of vessels, ownership, and cost
of the United States transport system.
If it does, somebody will have a lively
time, as there is little doubt that there
have been some scandalous things con
nected with the transport service.
Perhaps Secretary Root hasn't known
of them, and perhaps he has. At any
rate several Senators? including Mr.
Till'" ?an, have intimated on the floor of
the Senate that thsy knew of them, and
if Secretary Root fails to supply the
information they may do so.
Ex-Senator Faulkner, of W. Va.,
when asked] what he thought of the
political outlook, said: "I think that
it will not be very much longer before
the pendulum will swing back and
bring with it a return of the Democ
racy to power. This will depend to a
large degree on the conduct of the
party in Congress. If, in their opposi
tion to the Republicans, they adopt a
course too radical to suit the solid
business interests, they will not bo en
trusted with the reins of government.
After all, the people who have the say
in determining party supremacy are
those who control the finances of the
country. The Democrats have a gol
den opportunity but to gain the sup
port of this class they must be conser
Henry F. Oxnard, president of the
American Beet Sugar Association, who
was before the House Ways and Means
Committee to oppose removal of the
tariff from Cuban sugar, denounced
H. O. Havemeyer, head of the sugar
trust, as the "fnstigator-in-chief of all
this Cuban free sugar scheme." He
also said that to encourage an increase
in the production of Cuban sugar would
result in bringing the American fann
ers into competition with Chinese
Coolie labor, which the Cuban sugar
planters would get as soon as Cuba was
an independent government.
The delegates in Congress from New
Mexico, Arizona and Oklahoma threat
en to resign their seats if the Houbo
does not pass the bills giving statehood
to those Territories. *
Democratic Senators are making the
Philippine tariff bill the text for a gen
eral raking over of the Republican
Philippine policy, and the broadsides,
are likely to grow warmer as the de
bate goes on.

EVANS1 PHARMACY, Anderson, S. C.
Genta? it gives ms pleasure to give to the public my
high opinion of the value of your preparation known as
Evans' Sarsaparilla. I have a cancerous affection of the face
of some years standing which gave me no little concern.
After I had given many other preparations for the blood a
full trial, and had consulted several eminent physicians, I
found myself not improved, my attention was called to your
valuable preparation, known as Evans' Sarsaparilla, and t<*
my delight one bottle completely removed the giowth, and I
feel that every one should know of it. I can recommend
Evans' Sarsaparilla in all skin and blood affections, whatso
ever the cause may be.

A Remedy You Can Bank On!
A ^SAFARI j ^a!
THIS "agreeable preparation is [composed of the most valuable alterative, tonic and
blood purifying vegetable remedies.
It is made right here in your own Town by reliable Pharmacists, and if it wasn't a
remedy that would be of great benefit to you it wouldn't be manufactured and sold by Evans
Evans' Sarsaparilla costs more to manufacture than any other Sarsaparilla on the mar
ket, although it is put up in the same size bottle and sold at the same price.
The dose is one-half that of any other Sarsaparilla, so by buying EVANS' SARSAPA
RILLA you get twice as many doses for the same amount of money.
Then you get a remedy that has been tried right here by people ?you know, and it has
proved to be all that the manufacturers claim for it. One peculiar point about tais medicine
is that it strengthens and builds up the system while it eradicates disease.
gflTaken as a BLOOD PURIFIER, or for any of the troubles arising from an impure state
cf the blood, it is, we believe, superior to any remedy on the market. It is a quick and per*
manent cure. *
