Tub Johnnon City Comet says:
'Senator Date does not have 0
show his hand his leg will do."
ISkxatoh Money, of Mississippi,
has made a ecord in bill introduc
ing, lie began the week in the
senatu by introducing 233 bills,
over 200 of which were for claims.
Other Senators have introduced
more measures during the entire
session, but Mr. Money's is the rec
ord of one day's work.
The republican senate committee
assignments were made Tuesday.
Senator Morgan was removed from
the chairmanship of the Canal Com
mittee and Senator Llanna was
Darned in his place. Senator Mor
gan in a speech severely criticised
the President's course on the isth
mian canal question. He charged
that the President knew there would
be an uprising in Panama, and that
he had war ships there to protect
Mb. Gaines, member of Congress
from the Nashville district, has in
troduced a bill to amend the Fedcr
.al constitution by providing a
single term of six years for the
presidential office. The proposition
is a good one, in that it would con
tribute to the independence of the
chief executive, who would not be
forced to pander to Senators and
others who control patronage. But,
whether it will carry or not is
another question. Many deserving
propositions are deferred indefinite-
The Atlanta Constitution of the
15th iust. made some good suggest
ions for the democratic platform for
1904. It may be a little difficult to
shape a platform to meet the needs
of the time. But. isn't it about as
difficult to find a man to fit the
platform? This, in our opinion, is
the most important tiling. If a
mistake be made in the platform it
can be remedied. If a mistake be
made on the other hand we'll be in
it. Make haste slowly.
The above is from the Crockett
County Sentinel, which seems to
thick the man more important than
the platform. The nominee, of
course, is supposed to be consulted
in the formation of a platform, and
he is in honor bound to carry out its
provisions. The platform is a dec
laration of principles for which the
party stands, and the agents to car
ry out those principles should be of
secondary consideration. The plat
form 's the thing. If you haven't
got a sound one to stand on you're
in bad shape to win, however pop
ular your candidate may be.
Our New Leader In Congress.
John Sharp Williams, the Dem
ocratic leader in Congress, is not a
Kentuckian, but received in part
his education and married there. He
is a native of Tennessee and in his
fiftieth year. His father, who was
Colonel of the Twentieth Tennessee
Confederate Infantry, was killed at
Shiloh. After attending the Ken
tucky Military Iustitute, near
Frankfort, he was a student at the
University of the South, Sewanee,
Tenn.; the University of Virginia
and the University of Heidelberg,
Germany. He was educated for the
bar and practiced law iu Memphis
until 18TS, when he moved to
Yazoo City, Miss, which has been
his residence since. He was elected
to Congress in 1875, and is now
Berving his sixth consecutive term.
His advancement to party leader
ship has been gradual but steady, as
the result of dilligent woik, backed
by a strong character and well-disciplined
mind. Few men have a
firmer hold upon the confidence of
their associates, and every indication
favors the assurauce that the Dem
ocrats in Congress have made a wise
selection. He is courteous in de
bate and judicious in the line of his
opposition, but has shown himself
firm and able in the debates which
have arisen. In a recent discussion
with Mr. Payne, chairman of the
Committee of Ways and Means,
who charged that he was against the
reciprocity treaty, he effectively
showed that Le was not against the
principle, but objected to a few de
tails which he sought to remedy by
amendment. After enumerating a
number of reciprocity treaties in
the past executed or approved by
the Democrats, he concluded his
remarks on this topic with the fol
lowing broad expressions of Dem
ocratic principle ami policy well
worthy of reproduction:
"These are precedents. Let us
have more of them. Let us go
marching on in the pathway of
commercial friendship, turning our
backs upon commercial war; and
when we cast our eyes northward
across an imaginary boundary line
between ourselves and a npnnlft orlir. !
are homogeneous in blood, in law
- r - - -uv
and in literature, let us build up
friendly relations with them by
friendly reciprocal trade. So much
my friends, for that. Let us antici-i
pate Chamberlain's attempt to have
the Dominion differentiate against
us in favor of Great Britain.
"My friend says that this will
take five or six millions out of the!
Treasury, and he thinks that would '
be an advantage, and there again I
accord with him. It seems to me
that the very best way of letting
the people make money is to let the
people keep their money; and after!
you are through with all your
political talk upon all the hustings
of the United States, upon that side
and upon this, the fact remains that
every dollar in the public still comes
from somewhere. Every dollar in
the Treasury came from some
American citizen somewhere. I
welcome the fact that we will have
many millions less iu the Treasury,
and that we will have many mil
lions more in the pockets of the
people, in the channels of
commerce, where it , is needed to
give life and blood to the industrial
ism of the country." (Applause.)
Several years ago, a little girl by
the name of Virginia O'llanlon
.wrote to the editor of the New York
Sun as follows:
'Dear Editor I am eight years
old. Some of my little friends say
there is no Santa Claus. Papa says,
It you see it in the Sun, it's so.'
Please tell me the truth is there a
To the above the editor of the
Sun replied at once:
Virginia, your little friends are
wrong. They have been affected by
the skepticism of a skeptical age.
They do not believe except they see.
They thiuk that . nothing can be
which is not cpmp'rehensible by
their little minds. All minds,
whether they be men's or children's
are little. In this great universe of
ours man is i mere insect, an ant,
iu his intellect, as compared with
the boundless word about him, as
measured by the intelligence capable
of grasping the whole of truth and
Yes. Virginia, there is a Santa
Claus. He exists as certainly
as love and generosity and
devotion exist, and you know that
they abound and give to your life
its highest beauty and joy. Alas!
how dreary would be the world if
there were no Santa Claus! It
would be as dreary as if there were
no Virgiuias. There would be no
childlike faith then, no poetry, no
romance to make tolerable this ex
istence. We should hive no enjoy
ment, except iu sense and sight.
The eternal light with which child
hood fills the world would be ex
tinguished. Not believe in Santa Claus! You
might as well not believe in fairies!
You might get your papa to hire
men to watch in all the chimneys on
Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus,
but even if they did not see Santa
Claus coming down, what would
that prove? Nobody sees Santa
Clans, but that is no proof that
there is no Santa Claus. The most
real things in the world are those
that neither children nor men can
see. Did you ever see fairies
dancing on the lawn? Of course
uot, but that's no proof that they
are not there. Nobody can conceive
or imagine all the wonders un
seen and unseeable in the world.
You may tear apart the baby's
rattle and see what makes the noise
inside, but there is a veil covering
the uuseeu world which not the
strongest man, nor even the united
strength of all the strongest men
that ever lived, could tear apart.
Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, ro
mauce, can push aside that curtain
and view and pictifre the supernal
beauty and glory beyond. Is it all
real? Ah, Virginia, in all this
world there is nothing else real -ind
No Santa Claus! Thank God!
he lives, and he lives for ever. A
thousand years from now Virginia,
nay, ten times ten thousand years
from now, he will continue to make
"lad the heart of childhood.

Richmond, Va., Nov. 21. The
design lor a monument to Jefferson
Davis was selected at the meeting
of the Jefferson Davis Monument
Association iu conjunction with the
Daughters of the Conlederacy, in
session at Charleston last week.
The design is the work of Mr.
Noland of this city, who was select
ed by the ladies to draw it, and
Edward Valentine is the sculptor.
The design consists of a tall central
column encircled with a colonnade
comprising thirteen colunius,oue for
each of the thirteen seceding States.
The statue of Mr. Davis will be of
heroic size and stands on a pedes
tral of its own immediately in trout
ol the central column. A heroic
figure of Virginia will surmount the
columu, and the whole will form a
paved court in some central spot in
Richmond not yet definitely de
termined. The consummation of this long
cherished idea, conceived by tue ,
United Confederate ' Veterans' oi-
gauizaliou, is due to the work of!
tue Daughters oi the Conlederacy. ,

The Best Remedy lor L'roup.
From the Atchison, Kan., Daily Globe.
This is the season when the
woman who knows the best reme
dies for croup is in demand iu every
neighborhood. One of the most
terrible things in the world is to be
awakened in the middle of the
night by a whoop from one of the
children. The croup remedies are
almost as sure to be lost, in case of
croup, as a revolver is sure to be
lost in case of burglars. There
used to be an old fashioned remedy
for croup, known as hive syrup and
tolu, but some . modern mothers say
that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
is better, and docs not cost so much.
It causes the patient to "throw up
the phlegm" quicker, and gives
relief in a shorter time. Give this
remedy as soon as the croupy cough
appears and it will prevent the at
tack. It never fails and is pleasaut
and safe to take. For sale by Cox
