LACK OF QUORUM
Members of House In Habit
of Staying Away.
OFFICE BUILDING ATTRACTS
Congressmen Prefer to Stay In Cozy
Office Than Show Up at Capitol and
Attend to Business Much Time of
House Taken Up With Questions of
By ARTHUR W. DUNN.
Washington, Feb. 14. Special.
Just criticism of members of the bouse
Is frequently made because the mem
bers do not stay In the hall and main
tain a quorum. This causes a waste of
time when a quorum Is demanded.
Any disgruntled member can consume
forty minutes by having tho roll called.
That members do not attend Is large
ly due to the existence of the ofllce
building. They all hare good rooms
there whore they can go and do work
much more Interesting than listening
to wrangles over points of order, most
of which Involve the question of sal
ary Increases of from 5100 to ?500.
Much of the time of the house Is con
sumed with those trivial discussions
and outside matters that cannot be act
ed upon at this session.
Bills Will Fail.
It Is almost certain that several im
portant appropriation bills will fall and
must be considered In tho extra ses
sion unless there Is a radical change In
tactics. In that event It la probable
that the session will be called at least
two weeks earlier than now Is contem
plated, as the appropriation bills could
bo taken up while tho ways and means
committee is still putting tho tariff bills
In shape. Many members want to ob
tain as long a vacation as possible and
will be cut off if the appropriation bills
All the time there are goodby din
ners. Taft has had at least a dozen
and Mr. Cannon as many. William B.
McKInley of Illinois has had his share,
and several other men who will no
longer be In public life have been bid
den goodby at evening feasts. "It's
almost worth going out to find just
how much your friends say they miss
you," remarked Uncle Joe.
White House Campaigns.
Naturally the discussion of the six
year term resolution in the senate
brought forth protests against aggres
sive campaigns by occupants of the
White IIouso for themselves or ihelr
successors. As usual, Roosevelt was
held up as the "horrible example."
Senator Borah of Idaho, who was a
Roosevelt man up to tho time the Chi
cago convention adjourned, replying to
several senators, pointed out that no
more oggresslvo White Ilouse cam
paigns were ever made than were those
of Jefferson and Jackson In behalf of
favorites for successors. J
Senator Williams was Inclined to dis
pute Jefferson's activity, but Borah as
serted that he was correct. It would
be strange if a White Ilouse occupant
should not have n preference and to
use his power to nominate the man he
wanted to succeed him.
Tho house was discussing a proposi
tion to build monuments to Hamilton
and Jefferson when Congressmen Slay
den of Texas" and Cooper of Wisconsin
disclosed the fact that they had each
purchased for $G0 volumes of Jeffer
son's works with the understanding
that a portion of the fund should go
toward a Jefferson monumont. And
they hadn't heard anything of It since.
"A gentleman sitting near mo," re
marked Uncle Joe Cannon, "suggests
both gentlemen were easy marks."
"As there seem to be so many suck
ers In the house," chimed In McCoy of
New Jersey, "I move to refer the bill
to the committee ou fisheries."
Both Slayden nnd Cooper declared,
however, that they had not beeu
"stung" In tho purchases.
Red Rural Wagons.
" 'Ware tho bull" will have to be the
signs on rural routes, according to sug
gestions coming In to Fourth Assist
ant Tostmaster General DeGraw. This
Is all on nccount of a recent order by
Tostmaster General Hitchcock to have
everything connected with the post
ofllce department painted red.' "Our
red wagons will attract the bulls along
our routes!" Is n wall sent In by some
of the carriers. This order may have
to bo reversed as applied to rural wag
ons. Martine a Good Guide.
Senator Martine of Now Jersey takes
a great deal of pleasure In showing his
constituents about tho capltol building.
He follows the course of tho experi

cold weather following It, has reviv
