Our business for March, 1902, waa Forty-five per Cent
nore than for the same month in 1901. This ie by far the
argest sales we haye ever had in any previous March. Last

Now there must be some good reason for this increase.

FROM THE NATION'S CAPITAL.
From Our Own Correspondent.
WASHINGTON, D. C., April 28,1002.
Democratic satisfaction is the most
conspicuous feature in Congressional
circles at this time, and there is ample
reason for it. The victory that the
Dem?crata of the House won when
they got the amendment repealing the
differential duty on refined sugar,
which officials of the Sugar Trust admit
would cut their profits $8,000,000 a year,
put on the Cuban reciprocity bill be
fore it was passed, has been made
effectual.by a conference of Republican
Senators, which has decided that the
Senate shall pass as a party measuro a
substitute for the House bill and that
it shall not contain the repeal of the
differential duty. That is just what
Democrats hoped for, although they
doubted whether the Republican lead
ers would be short-sighted enough to
give it to them. By killing tho differ
ential repeal the Republican Senate
will show that it cares moro for the
interest of the Sngar Trust than for
the interest of the sugar consumers,
and the showing will bo so plain that
it will be useless for Republican editors
and stump-speakers to try to deny it.
That showing should of itself be suffi
cient to elect a Democratic majority of
the next House. Is itany wonder that
Democrats in Congress smile and are
well satisfied with the situation?
The latest move of the tariff ref oren
Republicans in the House is an agita
tion for tho appointment of a tarit!
commission to sit during the coming
summer and report to Congress next
December. The chief agitator in thit
matter is Representative Roberts, ol
Mans., wbo made an unsuccessful at
tempt to get an amendment placing
hides on the free list attached to tin
Cuban reciprocity bill before it passet
the House. The principal argument ii
favor of a tariff commission is that i
would keep the Republican tariff're
formers in line during the coming Con
greBsional campaign, because it woult
be a sort of proiilise that the Republi
cans intended to revise the tariff
Democrats are not uneasy over such f
method of evading the very live ques
tion of tariff revision. They knov
that the voters of tho country are in
telligent enough to know that if tin
Republicans really wish to revise th<
tariff there is plenty of time to do i
at this Bession and give tho people i
. chance to pass on the work at tin
Congressional elections, and that tin
appointment ot a tariff' commisBioi
would only be an attempt to dodge thi
issue until after the Congressional elec
? tion s.
Republican Senators, in addition t<
telling Mr. Roosevelt thnt it would b?
a costly mistake to forcibly retire Gen
Miles, are giving other and more prac
ti cal evidence of their sympathy wit!
Gen. Miles. For instance, Senato
Hawley, chairman of the Senate com
raittee on Military Affairs, has intro
due ed a bill to "increase the ell lei enc:
of the r.rmy," the most important claus*
pf which makes the lieutenant-genera
the actual commander of the army
instead of the figurehead he nowie
and which is clearly intended to be ii
the interest of Gen. Miles, by gi vim.
the position he holds a better legs
status than it now has. ?
Senator Patterson in a warm speed
against what is known aa the Unioi
Depot bill, which, ho said, in additioi
to giving one corporation a perpetua
monopoly in railroad terminal facilitie
in Washington, gave it in cash am
real estate nearly $9,000,000, took occa
sion to put in a word for governmen
ownership of public Utilities, a system
which, he said, must ultimately provai
or else the power of corporations wil
increase until all who dwell in ci tie
will become their serfs.
Represen cati ve Stevens, of Minn,
who was recently in Cuba, doesn't en
thnso over the prospect of Americm
trade with the island. He tells th
following personal experience: "Ther<
is a native prejudice in Cuba agains
American goods. At Santiago I met i
Philadelphia man traveling for a linei
house, and went with him to the va
riouB merchants of Santiago. Not om
of these merchants would consider an:
trade with the United States. The:
would not examine the goods, thougl
the prices were as low and the travel
lng man claimed the quality and term
as good as would be furnished b:
European competitors. At Cienf uegoi
I met a Boston traveling mac wh<
represented a boot and shoe house
He had a similar experience. Only on?
merchant in Cienf negoa would cxamim
nib goods. The articles were the bes
that could be made and the prices wer?
low, but the native taste preferred th?
cheap Spanish product."
.. Senator Rawlins, in his speech ?'?!s'.ns?
the Philippine bill, rubbed it.on th?
Republican Senators, who have shown
A disposition to avoid listening ti
speeches against the bill, when h<
said: "This bill ia fastening on 10,
000,000 people the greatest oligarch:
that ever existed. It ia a crime andi
frightful travesty, and while it ia beim
discussed Senators slink away to lol
in their cloak rooms."
Representative Shaflrotb, of Colo,
presented some strong arguments t>
the House Judiciary Committee ii
favor of amending the resolution pro
viding for a change in inauguratioi
day from March 4 to tho last Thorsda;
in April, BO as to provide for the as
sembling of Congress on January
following the Congressional elections.
He thinks that for a Honse to continuo
to legislate after a majority of its mom
bera nave been turned down by the
people, as frequently occurs under
present laws, is misrepresentation.
Representative Richardson, the Dem
ocratic leader of the House, thinks
Congress ought to do something to
bring the Beef Trust to book. He has
introduced a resolution directing the
Ways and Means Committee to inves
tigate the recent extraordinary rise in
the price of meat and provide, if pos
sible, some legislative relief.

The Delay in the Pension fund.
The State Pension Board was

the newspapers to publish the follo\

owing to the delay on the part of ce
