Ql lie James' Victory.
' eongratulatc Congressman 01-lie
James on hib victory for a three-cent
meet railway fare in tho District
of Columbia. The Republicans
House of Kcprottontattvos stood
for amendment to tho terminal
steet car bill, which was carried by
a vote of 15 'J to H'.i. As tho Republican
majority in tho House is 11-,
the Jatuos measure received a heavy
Kopublicau support. That able and
resourceful Kopublicau, Mr. Hepburn,
of Iowa, took strong ground
in favor of the James amendment.
We holicvc in justice to all railroads
and other corporations, but a
three-cent rate in a city liko Washington
is ample for all ends. It
pays all investments, provides for
dividends, reserve funds and improvements.
The Federal government
should do all iu its power to
mako Washington a desirable place
to live in. Tho national metropolis
is a place of magnificent distances.
Tho street ear comes into the daily
needs of nearly all its inhabitants.
The fare should be placed within
reach of all. Visitors in thousands
Hock from all directions to Washington.
No man can visit tho National
capital without coming away a better
American. Desirablo is it,
therefore, that tho oity of Washington
should bo made an inviting
placo for visitors. The
car fare will help to that cud.
Uut tho James amendment will
have a far-reaching effect on tho
country at largo. It will show streot
railway corporations that tho moro
thoy seek to serve tho publio, tho
closer they got to the publio heart,
the surer they win the popular approval,
the better for their material
interests. It will suggest to the
public that fair doaiing with corporations
is tho host policy. The
Aniorican pooplo are unaltorably
to confiscation, and in most
oitios tho fueling against public own-ship
is very pronounced. If the
people dosire good sorvice from their
corporations thoy should use the latter
justly, if firmly. Louisville

the state tax amounted to
Tho county tax to $12,9b'S.37.
The railroad tax to $2,472.84.
This settlement breaks all records
that wo have heard of by its promptness,
and was done without borrowing
a cent of money, wo arc informed.
Delia is a courteous and Kind-
hcartcd man, but firm and unflinching
in his official capacity, which is
tho best for everyone ho deals with,
as well as himself and his bondsmen.
What wo all need is someone to make
us do our best.
A Service Pension Bill.
A service pension bill has been
passed by Congress, under which
every honorable discharged veteran
of the Cnil War who served as much
as three months is entitled to receive
a pension of $12 a month at the age
of 70, and of $20 a month at the age
of 75. A provision giving a survivors
of the Mexican War a pension of
$20 a month was incorporated in the
bill. The commissioners of pensions

ROYAL Baking Powder is indispensable

Housekeepers are sometimes importuned to
buy other powders because they are "cheap."
Housekeepers should stop and think. Ifsuch

Alum is used in some baking powders
and in most of the so-called
phosphate powders, because it is
cheap, and makes a cheaper powder.
But alum is a corrosive which,
taken in food, acts injuriously upon
the stomach, liver and 'kidneys.
