the matter of extravngan
foliate fur exceeds (he house. III fuel,
the house fit 11 almost bo cxulu rated
frum the least llitliimtion of being i
trnvagnht If It expenditures ate to bo
Compared With those of the achate. Tlte
reason ror tills Is obvious. The numbers
of thv house mo fearful nf thr wr.uli
of Hie it-n1t-; the senators ilo tint niii
to ar" at all. Anything that will tend
to the comfort of tin- donate Is nutlini
lz.il without question, while in tlte
house n similar authorization Wotilil
raise from ilftci'ii to llfly objectors. This
Tnr of public opinion was noticeable In
th house during the early part of last
week. It will lie remembered that the
liotlse', In eotntnltlee of the whole, by
lioth vIVu Voce and teller votes, author
ized clerks for the use of members dur
ing the year round at $100 a month, yet
when the question was brought tip In
the house Itself ami the members were
compelled to go on record, the proposi
tion was defeated by a vole of US to int.
Ill other words, at least one-half of the
members were aftnltl to nte this ex
penditure, although In private they free
ly confessed that they believed It was
light. On the other band, the inntois
tint homed a similar expenditure for
themselves years ago, and It Is not
known that any senator suffered by rea-f-on
of his vote therefor.
Tnlte the item of funeral expenses at
tending the funeral of dead senators
and icproseiitntlves. Death bus reaped
an Unusual harvest mining our states
men during the last year, anil about
twenty were called away from their
earthly labors. In each and every ease
their funerals were conducted without
limit of expense and In a manner as
seemed belltting their station In life.
The olllclal In charge of lite funerals
was always given carte blanche by cou
Kross for the expenditures, and, as a
oon?euriiee, the bills already In range
from J741.W to $2,S.50.1t for each funeral.
So fur the bills for but nine funerals
have been rendered, and some of them
not complete, yet the tolal expenditures
tiggrognte $12.W04O. The funeral that
cost the most was that of the late Sen
ator Colquitt, of Georgia. It aggregated
Jl',550. II, and some nf the Items were S5Vt)
for the lease of three Pullman ears, and
51,322 for railroad transportation. The
funeral of Judge ChlpniUn, of .Michigan,
cost $2,323.40, while that of Judge Honk,
of Ohio, amounted to $l,SIO.o;i, and so It
Koes all alone the line. Some of the
Items of expense will show tin- extrava
gant charges, for Instance, a floral trib
ute In the shape of a broken column
furnished for the funeral of Senator
Vance, of North Carolina, cost $100 even.
This Is but a specimen of the way the
senate and house pay such bills and ask
no questions. In addition to these ex
penditures oil tu count of death, the sen
ate has a habit of voting one year's sal
iiry, $.5,000, to the heirs of a dead sena
tor, and six months' salary to the heirs
of every employe who dies while hold
ing a positloin anil this habit nets a
nice sum every year.
The pages of Sergeant-at-Arms
Blight's report are filled to overflowing.
For Instance, a marble bust of George
31. Dallas, oiee lce president of the
Vnlted States, cost the senate J&Ort. It
is to be placed In one of the niches sur
rounding the senate chamber. And here
is an item that Is very peculiar. A
crayon portrait of Senator Voorhees
was bought to hang in the room of the
penate committee on llnnnce for $100.
Vi'hy the senate should pay such an
amount for u representation of the feat
ures and form of the Tall Sycamore of
the 'Wabash Is an open question, and
specially as the portrait is nothing but
crayon, which could be bought almost
anywhere for not over $20.
Another peculiar Item Is found in Inly
ing fifteen bushels of sawdust at fi cents
i bushel, .lust what use the senate has
lor sawdust no one here can imagine.
True it Is that such men as Woleott. Du
liois and others are all-round athlots,
but if they go down In the basement ami
Jiave a. set-to in a ten-foot ring it has
never leaked out. Still the buying of
this sawdust would indicate that some
thing of that kind is on hand quite
often. And here Is another interesting
item Forty dollars a month is paid a
man for the anurous and laborious work
t.f winding and regulating the senate
fine of the prominent items of extrav
agance Is the expenditures to keep the
senators cool during the hot summer
ni'.ntlis that they may be In condition
t" legislate for the best interests of the
c.iintiy. These expenditures may be
v ss.iry, but It is doubtful If they
w 'iild be approved of iii a popular vote.
I" i instance, take the month of Sop
temlii r. ISM, when the senate was en
gaged in the light to secure uncondition
al r-peal. The weather was hot outside
ni.d i he senators. were In a similar con
ilite.n inside the rnpltol building. As a
c nseqtiwiee neai ly Si. 000 was expended
dining the month for their comfort,
lid- .ire some of the items: For lee,
MXt-iiiu tons, $lli;.S0; for lemonade,
eighti .-n boxes of lemons, $S0; 020 pounds
o' sugar, $31.10: twenty-six cases of
appiilinaris water, $193.10; six cases of
rj ii! vii mineral water, $22,10. A the
frcnaie had but eighty-live members,
this was an expenditure of over 510
npleee to relieve their thirst and keep
Of oiirse senators are but human,
nnd as a consequence they are nflllcted
wh the same ailments as oilier mor
tals, such as headaches, etc. TIio drtig
frisi, tlierfore. is called upon quite often
t furnish articles for their use, and his
lull is also charged up to the people of
the country. Hero ! the bill of the
druggist for the month of October, lS'JJ:
Two rolls of court plaster, ouo bottle
liromo seltzer, one bottle bronio caffcln,
three and one-half dozen uppnlinatis,
flvo gallons of alcohol, one dozen liot
tlts of headache cute, one dozen bottles
of russet polish and a half dozen patent
leather polish, 375 pounds of sal soda,
200 two-grain quinine pill, SUO three,
grain quinine pills, 322 pounds of pow
der, S9 pounds of sponges, one dozen bot
tles of castor oil, half a dozen bottles
of arnica, and six bottles of sweet oil.
And the bills of the same druggist each
month are Just as diversified.
Another expenditure of the senate
which amounts to a good deal In the
courso of n year Is that of carriage hire.
Only tho finest rigs are fiirnMied for
the use or tno seuaie, aim, or eouise.
the llvervman charges only the fluent
prices. Ho would not lower the dignity
of the senate by chaigitig them the
Bnmo prices that he does for common
reople. Hero Is the carriage bill for the
mouth of October: October 11. four ear

was weak throughout to-day except lor
Sugar and Distilling and a few others of

of the London market for American secur

perhaps the most to do with the depres

rates was also a prominent factor.

Morales Said lo He Mipcrlor lo Hnur-Olnde
New York ISnglneer: In the latest re
ports of tin; local industrial Union men
tion Is made of n process, claimed to lie
entirely new, for liinmifiictiiiiiig floor
mosaics from wood pulp, an Innovation
which Is expected to produce Important
results. It Is claimed that this process
of mmitifncttirliig sectional or mosaic
floors by reason of the fact that, sections
made according to It nre tint liable to
any change of tcinpernture, nnd tiro not
like stone, but slmllnr to wood In all es
sential qualities. The process Is na fol
lows: Small particles of the wood, such ns
Sawdust, wood Hour, fine shavings, etc.,
nrc soaked lu a mixture of shellac und
alcohol so that the pores of the wood
are penetrated, nnd thoroughly dried.
A cement, consisting of fresh cheese
whey (curd) and slaked lime. Is then
prepared. The cement Is thinned with
water nnd then mixed thoroughly with
tho already dry wood particles In such
a way that the consistency of the mass
Is uniform. Particular care is taken to
render the cement us thin its possible,
so that It will distribute Itself easily
nnd uniformly, nnd Inclose each particle
of wood as perfectly us the shellac so
lution. The mixture thus produced Is allowed
to dry until It Is only moist not thor
oughly dry, ns before, for In the latter
case the curd would lose Its cohesive
power. The moist pulp Is then put into
heated mosaic molds of tho desired
shape and size, and, in these forms,
, placed under the presses. As u result of
the heat, tho shellac softens, regalnlm
Its adhesive powers, und the curd ce
ment hardens rapidly, so that both of
the substances, the shellac as well ns
tho cement, unite under the pressure so
perfectly with the wood particles that
the wood mass resulting may, within a
few minutes, be tuken out uf the molds
without losing the form received. After
the cooling process and complete hard
ening these mosaics, It Is claimed, nro
far less susceptible to any change of
temperature or moisture than any nat
ural wood. It Is absolutely necessary
that tho use of every other Ingredient,
especially if of an oily or fatty charac
ter, should be avoided In this process, ns
otherwise the dose' union of tho shellac
with the curd cement would be retarded
or even prevented.
Wood pulp for tho manufacture of va
rious colored mosaics Is prepared In tho
following manner: Tho particles of dif
ferent varieties of wood aro put through
the process separately, so that tho nat
ural color of the wood Itself Is brought
Into prominence. Dyes, dissolved in al
cohol, nre mixed with the shellac solu
tion before the wood particles aro coat
ed. The wood particles aro first colored
with dyes, dissolved In water, nnd al
lowed to dry well before the coating
with shellac solution. For simple floors
It sulUees to manufacture mosaics of
different colors, changing them nt pleas
ure so ns to form n variety of patterns.
The manufacture' of patterns or fancy
wood mosaics Is proceeded with ns fol
lows: Pattern molds, of the required de
flgn (divided into fields and figures), nre
fitted into the plain mold; each section
of the design is tilled with the wood
pulp, dye'd as before described, und tho
pattern nnd mold removed, tiftcr which
the whole, thus freely outlined, is sub
jected to heat niul pressure, ns lieforo
mentioned, the result being perfect vari
colored fancy mosaic. This wood mo
saic, in spito of its hardness nnd resist
ing qualities, still relnlns all tho essen
tial properties of wood, being thus .par
ticularly well adapted for use ns floor
covers In living rooms and similar pur
poses. NEW PASSENGER SERVICE.
