Washington, L'kc. 11, 1896.
Dear Boss : Unless you can buy us
several more Senators it would be ini
possible to pay a tariff dividend on
the investments of the late campaign."
While the above is not tlie exact
wording of the message sent by the
caucus of republican Senators to
King Hanna, it contains the substance
and real meaning of the request of the
tiuu irai iiiraniii^ «»i irquufw ui n:e
caucus steering committee, that Mr,
Hanna shall try to "influence" the
election of Senato!s who will pledge
themselves to act with the republicans
on the tariff in several States. Among
the legislatures upon which tlierepub
licau Senators desire Mr Hanna to try
his "influence" are those of North
Carolina, Kentucky, Washington and
South Dakota. It high tariff Senators
can be secured for all of these, the
passage of a high tariff bill at the ex
tra session of the next Congress will
be assured. Otherwise tbc matter has
been made very doubtful, with the
chances against a high tariff, by the
action .of the silver republicans in de
clining invitations to enter tiie repub
lican Senatorial caucus.
While the caucus of republican Sen
ators did not by a formal vote abandon
the Dingltv tariff bill, they did what
was practically the same tiling when
they refeired it to the steering com
mittee and empowered ihat commit
tee to act upon its own judgment.
Pressure from the woolen manufac
turers may compel the tepublican Sen
ators to demonstrate by some sort of
a vote, not necessarily on the hill it
self, that the Dingley bill cannot pass,
but the bill is as uead as Ben Han i
si'u's force bill, so far as any serious
attempt to pass it is concerned. The
lepiiblicans couldn't pass it if they
wanted to, and very few of them want !
to. This was shown this week when !
the hill was before the Senate for a j
few minutes (on Senator Alien's nio- !
tiou to take it up, which was carried !
by a vote of 35 to 21), by the; conster- 1
nation which existed among the re- j
publicans who had voted for the mo
tion because they were afraid to do
Representative Stokes of 3. C. has
been served with notice of a double
contest for his seat in the present and
in the next House. Dr. Stokes came
to Washington last year with Hie
proper certificate of election but his
seat was contested by Mr. Johnson a
republican. Finding nothing in the
case upon which to base an excuse tor
giving Johnson the seat, the republi
cans of the house declared the seat
vacant. The two men were again
candidates and Dr. Stokes was elected
to the vacancy and also to the next,
House. Johnson's contest depends
more upon the republican majority
than it does upon any evidence he ex- !
pects to produce.
Senator Blanchard voiced the sen- j
ment of nearly all of the democrats in !
both branches of Congress when he ■
said : " The democratic party, while ■
beaten in the recent election, is com- j
pact, organized, aurl full of hope for Î
the future. It simply bides its time, j
It has lost some material which can be j
spared, and gained lots of friends,
adherents, aud well-wishers. It has
always been a party of wonderful re
cuperative capacity. It will be ready
for tbe fray in 1898 and in 1900. Woe
to tbe republican party if it does not
make good that dangerous promise it
lias heralded throughout the land of
prosperity aud good times."
Senator Quay lias astonished those )
who thought they knew him, not only j
by his change of tactics—he lias heie'
tofore been the most silent of lighters
—bat by the wording of some of his
published interviews aginst the jandi
dacy of Mr. John Wauamaker for the
Senate. For instauce, when lie said :
"In the U. S. Senate, we have million
aires and business men enough to
serve all legitimate purposes. Senators
are needed who have uo specialties
but who will act for the interest of the
country in gross without special affini
ties. The people most deserving of
representation and most in need of
legislative protection are the farmers,
the small store keepers, the artisans
and the laborers, and I stand by
them." J tie truthfulness of the above
is unquestioned, but that it should
come from Quay is astonishing. While
not himself a millionaire, Mr. Quay
has always had the reputation of be
ing in touch with the millionaires of
the countiy. But, he is first of all a
politician, and as such is apt to make
use of what lie thinks tobe the most
effective weapons to carry his purpose.
The House is going right ahead
passing bills just as though the Sen
ate Calendar was not already choked
up with House biils passed at the last
seision which haven't a ghost of a
chance to get acted upon,
The mountain would not go to Ma
homet so Mahomet went to the moun
tain. After remaining in Washington
nearly a week stopping just around
the corner from the hotel at which
Speaker Reed makes his home in
Washington, without receiving a call
from Mr. Reed, Boss Hanna decided to
call upon Mr. Reed and he did so at
the latter's office in the Capitol. In
view of the humble manner iu which
most of the republicans waited upon
Hanna, this call must have been a lit
tle humiliating to him; that it was
pleasant to Tom Reed is certain.
Senator Mills has left all the other
resolutions relating to Cuba awav be
hind by offering one directing the
President to take forcible p<
of Cuba and hold it until the

"A lawyer who had gaiued a large
local reputation nan Ids lull length
portrait painted by a great artist, and
he was so proud of it that lie kept it in
his office for the inspection and admi
ration of liis friends. One day an old
country client came in ami after look
iug at the poitrait for some time the
lawyer asked him what he thought cl
it. "Tain t like," was the reply.
''What ia the matter?" asked the ori
with asperity, "Wall you see,
'Squire," was the drawling reply, "the
I'ictur man lias got you with your
l»an«l in your own pocket, and he
ought to have you with your hand in
somebody else's pocket."
By all means let us have an extra
session. Let us have the thing over
with. I here is absolutely no excuse
for delay. A return to the McKinley
bill is not contemplated, but the Wil
son bill is full of errors, inequalities
and injustices. Let us straighten
them out. Let us be moderate and
conservative in doing this, out we
have got to have $50,000,000 more of
revenue a year, and this money must

"The use of 'Castoria' is so universal and
its merits so well known that it seems a work
