A New Stiddlo for Bicyclists.
Bicycle riders have hnd introduced to
their notice the "Moore saddle. It lias
been pronounced by riders and physicians
to be the most perfect ever produced.
The objections to saddles In geneial use
are many At present theie Is no Middle,
which can be uhed by any rider v. ith rase
and comfort. It Is necessary to try sad
dle after saddle, and in the end the lider
accept3 one which does not suit, but be
cause Itis thebest one thatcan be had. The
reason is readily apparent, and it Is that
many saddles on the market are faulty
both In construction and principle All
saddles which use two pads are objection
able because the pads become hard and
caky; also, the pads generate heat; also,
there Is no way of ventilating, and In hill
climbing the tendency Is to Midi! forward
on to the peak, which is below the level of
the pads and does not form tho abutment
which-is absolutely necessary, find the
pads do not wear well and lose their
"The Mooic" saddle consists of a trans
verse support which is connected to the
usual sent post of the machine; two clumps
surround the support; two flatbprings arc
carried by the clamps, and to the ends of
the spriugs are connected the cantles and
adjusting deices, to which are secured
the two tops made of leather The saddle
Is of ornamental and attractlveappen ranee;
It can be easily applied and adjusted to any
sized machine. By reason of its n.huy
adjustment, it cau be adapted to any slzo
or formed rider. It places the weight
directly upou the pellc bones, removing
all pressure, insuring perfect case and com
fort, and preventing injurious effects; It
insures perfect ventilation; smooth and easy
riding; can be adjusted and take up slack
or make the saddle soft -or hard; uud,
in fact, overcomes every objection and will
perfectly adapt itself to all ridera

HE ASSIGNS MS REASONS
Mr.&SJmnsou Maltes His Motion of
Is'CjQuoruiii uud I'rovoltes uu Inter
esting Debute Strong Arguments
Against Itepublicnu. Xrogruiti Mr.
Immediately after the assemblage of
the Bouse jesterday Mr. Simpson laised
the point of no quorum. It was expected,
and pi oduced considerable debate, In which
Mr. Shnpaon uttacked Mr. Keed'a policy
again, and Mr. Bailey outlined effectually
tho views lie desiied to make the noJI-jy of
Mr Heed counted tlie House and declared
181 to beprcbent. Mr. Dingley moved that
when the House adjourned it be to Wednes
day nett. .
In reply to a question from Mr. Bailey
as to the purpose ot the three dajs ad
journment, Mr. Dingley said that he was
not awaie of any business except waiting
for the return of tlie appropriation bills
from the Senate.
Mr. Bailey saldthatthe Democrats would
not insist on the "Republicans legislating
because the country buffered when they
legislated. He merely asked the question
to know tlie purpose of the other side.
Mr,- BItnpson made the point that the
motion to adjourn was not debatable, but
the debate went on, Mr. Dingley declining
toiriveanj other reabon than the one above
stated. He said, however, that matteis
mightccmcup byunanlnioubconsent. A-ked
by Mr. Simpson if it was the purpohe of
the Republicans not to appoint tho com
mittees, Mi. Dingley said it was a mat
ter entirely for the Speaker.
Tills was followed by a tunning debate
involving tho'debatability of the motion
to adjourn, during tlie course of which
Mr. Simpson took occasion to again attack
the policy of Mr. Jleed and becrcly ar
raigned the Republican policy or inaction
in which position he was Joined by several
other speakers. Those who f-poke on the
various subjects were: Dingley, Meltae,
Walker, DeArmond, and several others
Mr Uniley, who had previously given his
views at "times during the debate, summed
them tip iu thejollowing statement:
"Mr. Speaker, the Republican leudera have
so ortcn arraigned the Democratic party
for what they have been pleased to fall its
incapacity to deal with important questions
that wc naturally feel tempted now to in
dulge iu. the same line of assault;. But look
ing heyoud itjiis opportunity for partisan
which Ui might win for the time, and re
garding, urj duty from the hight-r and
broader standpoint of unselfish service to
the country, ,1 think It wisest Tor us to
follow out our often-repeated declaration
that Republican legislation Is injurious to
the publjc welfare, and we will not urge
the Kenulilkuil party to do whatougutuot
to bo done.
"If they s'9uld pass the non-pnrtlcan meas
ures suggeoted by the gentleman from
Arkuutup, then there might he home senbe
iu urging thejni to proceed. Hut if they
leglsJatOfjUpou the financial question, bir,
you kuqw as well as I do, and I know
as well jif that I live, that they will hot
pronofcOrOTi Hjtpport a measure tiiat cau
command our votes. If they do anything,
It will be to perpetuate the national bank
ing system aud to proide for the retne
ment or the legal-tender notes of the
I!ae w-e been honest when we have
denounced Republican laws? If wc have,
let us be honest and candid still. What
will tho country think of our wisdom or
ourbincerity If we demand that the mujoilfcy
shall proceed to legislate, knowing that
jou will make bad laws uud that we have
no power to prevent your making them
when you attempt to do ao? The country
under buch circumstances must; doubt
either our wisdom or our sincerity, and it
probably will doubt both.
"For my parti have neer seen a time
when I wanted the Republicau part to
legislate I h.-ivencverbcm the time when!
thought the country wus as well off with a
Republican Congress in session as when it
had adjourned We would hne Aerj much
less to complianof if the Republican party
had slmplj, passed the appropriation bills
and gone home. I know that jou do not
intend to pass any new laws which are
good or to repeal nny old laws that aie
"What, then, is my duty? To urge jou
to go when we know jou are going to do
-wrong? If we urge you to make bad
laws, we are fools; and if we pretend
that wo want jou to legislate when -we
do not, c are hypocrites. There might
bo some partisan satisfaction in criticising
you from day to day, but in the end such
petty-fogging politics redound neither to
tlie advantage of. Individuals nor of. -i party.
The country is tired of cheap polities The
people want to know what party can legis
late to their best advantage; and finding
that, they arc ready to rcwaid that party
with its confidence.
"During the last campaign you said that
all the country needed to restore piospenty
was that confidence should bo re-established,
"which, -as you claimed, Republican
success would do, and to increase the
"We said that your tariff ltgislntlon can
not make the country prosperous, and that
there must be a revision of your financial
system before the country will ever en
joy the prosperity which it deserves.
"The country gave you the power to pass
laws, and you have attempted to restore
prosperity by- increasing taxes. If you
succeed, the Democratic party might as
well not mfike'3a nomlnatiou in the noxt
Presidential election. If you fall, you
mightas well not make a nomination In the
next Presiflential election. Now, let us
