The latest Washington dispatches
state that Speaker Crisp will an
nounce his committees next Wednes
day, just before adjournment for the
Milwaukee wants the Democrat
ic National Convention, and has
raised 1100,000 to defray the expenses
of the body with. That is the kind
of business argument Minneapolis
used to capture the Republican con
vention. The State Democratic Con
vention of Louisiana, in session
at Baton Ilauge this week,
split on the lottery question,
and two tickets will be put in the
field. The Louisiana State Littery
will carry that old commonwealth
to the demnition bow wows yet.
Congressman Cclbertsox, of
Texas, has for the second time declin
oil a place on the Interstate Com'
merce Commission offered him by
President Harrison. Mr. Morrison's
term on the Commission expires with
this year, which will leave three va
cancies to be filled. It is thought
Mr. Morrison will be re-appointed.
Nothing of any consequence will
lie done by Congress until after the
holiday recess. Speaker Crisp is at
work on the make-up of the commit
tees, but they will not be announced
until after the recess. It is pretty
well settled, however, that the two
most important chairmanships, Ways
and Means, and Appropriations, will
irrespectively to ftpringer of Illi
nois, and Holman of Indiana.
Dr. I). O. Goodwin, Commission
er Agriculture for Tennessee, has
called a convention of the Commis
sioners of Agriculture of all the cot
ton growing states to meet at Mem
phis Jan. 8th, 1802 to consider the
question of reducing the cotton acre
age. Much interest has been mani
fested in the matter by the various
State Commissioners, and it is hoped
the Memphis meeting may find
some solution to this problem.
Congressman Miles is reported
to be displaying quite an ill spirit
since his defeat ior Speaker. It is
iven out that he would decline to
accept the chairmanship of the Ways
and Means Committee unless allowed
to name his party associates on the
committee. To this of course the
new Speaker will not assent, and Mr.
Mills will probably sulk in his tent
while McMillin and Springer, the
other defeated candidates for the
Speakership, put their shoulders to
wheel and work cheerfully for the
1 est interests of the party wherever
they are assigned. When a party
leader gets too big in his own estima
tion to work in the ranks, it is very
good evidence that he is too small
lor any other place.
This is Consoling.
Woodbury Courier: Whatever may
be said of Speaker Crisp's tariff
views, all will admit that he is a
-reat injpnwment over (':,ir Iph1.
Washington, D. C. Dec. U, 18il.
Speaker Crisp may have made
some promises before his election as
Speaker few men ever occupied the
position who had not done so in their
canvass for votes but he has made
few if any promises since his election.
He lets the other fellows do the talk
ing while he does double duty as a
thinker; ho knows that it will be
impossible to so arrange the commit
tee assignments that all the demo
cratic members of the House will be
pleased, and, if those who enjoy his
confidence may be relied upon, ho
will devote himself principally to the
task of making equitable distribution
of the chairmanships and places upon
the important committees between
the various sections of the country,
believing that no Itepresentative will
allow his personal disappointment to
make him angry when ho sees that
his section is fully represented. It is
now almost certain that the lists of
committees will not be announced
until after the Christmas recess, and
it is expected that Speaker Crisp
will, after all the members have been
given a chance to be heard, retire to
his home in Georgia, or to some
other place, where he can devote his
time during the recess to making up
All sorts of gossip about the chair
manships and the make-up of the
important committees may be heard,
but about the only thing that every
body seems to be agreed upon is that
the Ways and Means committee,
which deals with tariff matters, will
be dominated by Northern and West
ern members, whoever its chairman
may be. The general opinion is that
Mr. Mills can have the chairmanship
of this committee if he wishes it, but
some of his close friends say that he
will not take the place, several rea
sons being given why he will not ;
one of them being that there is an
extra session of the Texas Legisla
ture in the Spring, he will be a can
didate for the unexpired term in the
Senate of ex-Senator Reagan now
being temporarily filled by Senator
Chilton and that if he is elected he
will at once resign his seat in the
House. But there are those who
think that that is just the reason
why he should take the chairman
ship. They argue that for Mr. Crisp
to tender this important place to Mr.
Mills and for him to accept it would
show that no bad blood was left by
the hot fight for the nomination, and
that the committee could be so made
up that the next democrat on the
committee could from the first take
up the hard work of the chairman
and that in the event of the election
of Mr. Mills to the Senate this gentle
man might be made chairman.
Resolutions providing for an in
vestigation of the Pension Office will
shortly be offered in the House by
Itepresentative Cooper, of Indiana,
and Enloo, of Tennessee. The latter
gentleman says that his resolution
will be for an investigation of the
methods used and is intended to save
some of the tax-payers monev that
now goes through leaks which he
thinks are in the machine. Mr.
Cooper is particularly interested in
going for Gen. Raum, he being of the
opinion that the investigation by the
last Congress was not as impartial as
it might have been. Both resolu
tions will not be adopted, but the
probabilities favor the adoption of a
resolution that will be acceptable to
Gen. Forney of Alabama, who was
the senior democratic member of the
House Committee on Appropriations
in the last Congress, has, on account
of his age and somewhat failing
health, declined the chairmanship of
that committee, which was tendered
him by Speaker Crisp. It is believed
here that Representative Holman, of
Indiana, will, in the interest of gen
eral retrenchment in appropriations,
bo put at the head of that Com
mittee. Speaker Crisp pleased those mem
bers who wished to get the cash for
their mileage before Christmas by
announcing at the short session of the
House held on Saturday, previous to
the adjournment until Wednesday,
the membership of Committee on
Accounts and that on Mileage, as fol
lows: Accounts Rusk (Md.,) Coop

It was rumored that some of the
republican Senators proposed taking
steps to have the Senate declare Sen
ator Hill's scat vacant, because of his
tint having appeared to be sworn in

ernor of New ork, but the most
diligent inquiry failed to confirm the

A. S. Warner, Chairman of the Na
tional Executive Silver Committee.
lias called a meeting of the committee
here Tuesday. Jan. " next. Gen.
Warner says in his call that in view
of the probable action of Congress at
its present session on the silver ques
tion the meeting of the committee
will ho an important one. It is
believed the disposition of a majority
in the House is favorable to a full re-
monetizing of silver. On the other
hand, opposition to the present law
has rapidly developed in the East,
while antagonism to the free coinage
of silver has grown more and more
South Carolina Downs the Free Pass.
Columbia, S. C, Dec' 11. The
House of Representatives has passed
the anti-free railroad-pass bill, which
had previously been passed by the
Senate. It prohibits receiving of
free passes on railroads by any mem
ber of the Senate or House or State
or county official, or Judges of any
court of record in the State. A pro
vision excepting the Railroad . Com
missioners and Superintendent of
Education was stricken out. The
penalty provided in the bill is $"jl)0
fine or six months' imprisonment for
any official accepting a pass and a
similar fine for any railway official
offering the pass.
McMillan the Leader.
Special to Nashville Banner.
Washington, Dec. 16. The
House was only in session long
enough today to allow the Speaker
to appoint the Committee on Rules.
It consists of the Speaker, McMillin,
Catchings of Missisippi, Reed and J.
Burrows. This means that the gal
lant young Tennessean will be the
leader of the Democratic party on
the floor of the House, especially in
all great parliamentary battles be
tween the two parties.. McMillin's
appointment was received with
great satisfaction by all of the mem
bers. He is considered the readiest
and quickest man in the party in
debate, and his appointment is a
recognition of pure merit.
A late Washington dispatch reads:
It does not seem probable right
now that the House will attempt to
pass anything in the shape of a new
and complete tariff bill at this s'es
sion. The majority of Democrats
look upon such a proposition as a
useless waste of time. With the Re
publican Senate and President, the
bill would die after leaving the
House. The country knows the
Democratic tariff position, and under
the circumstances the leading Demo
crats are of the opinion that it would
be best to deal with the tariff in sen
arate bills affecting staple articles in
general use. The Republican Senate
would accept many changes to the
present law, but would never accept
a complete Democratic bill.
Chattanooga Times: Capt. E. P.
Howell, of the Atlanta Constitution,
says the election of Crisp "means
that we shall go into the fight (of '92)
with every living issue that divides
the Democratic party." Perhaps;
but if we go in with the free coinage
of what Hill calls "75-cent dollars"
we will go in with an issue that will
split the Democratic party wide open,
and give the Republican a victory.

which most peo
ple seek, and which but few are in
different to no matter in what form
it presents itself. The word 'pecu
niary," which is often used in speak
ing of a man's riches, comes from . the
Latin word jkcm, which means cattlct
and shows that formerly a man's
wealth was reckoned by the cattle
he possessed. Abraham is said to
have been "very rich in cattle, in sil
ver, and in gold." But no matter in
what a man's riches may consist, it is
all vanity and vexation of spirit, un
less in connection therewith he has
health. Kmcrson fully understood
this when he said "the first wealth is
health," and we have no doubt if he
had known the virtue of S. S. S.
that be would have recommended its
use to all persons suffering from the
diseases lor which it is recommended.
