Senate document No. 1 of the
Fifty-fourth congress is a very inter
esting publication, which is a strong
assertion to make of any congres
sional publication. Yet we "state
but tbe facts," as Truthful James
would put it.
The document in question shows
the expenditures of the senate out
side of the pay of members and off!
cers. the cost of light, fuel and, in
snort, every description of legiti.
irate expense. Among the items in
this document are 16.600 grains of
quinine, five pounds of brema-lithia,
cases of tromo-arsenic water, thou
sands of bottles of mineral water,
hundreds of boxes of lemons, tons of
sugar, great numbers of pocket-
boobs, at irom m to aiv eacn, card
cases, manicure sets, watches and
many other articles. But what ought
to touch the nerve of tbe taxpayer
most strongly is the expenditure for
hundreds of Imported English pock-
et-knives. Just think of it. Tbe

with Its tender feeling for the
American workingman, wttb its
fixed conviction that American
cutlery la the best in the world,

pocketknives to be carried In the
pockets of tbe friends and promoters
of American industries! And to be
paid for by the United States, there
by surrendering the revenue afforded
by the tariff on them at a time when
senators say that more revenue Is
our chief concern. The snm total of
all these purchases was 9163.921. or
an average of 91.900 to the senator.
This expense is in addition to the
pay and mileage.
It Is difficult to understand why
the United States should furnish
senators with mineral water, pocket
books or manicure sets. Bat if it is
the duty of the taxpayers to provide
these articles why not pay for their
champagne, cigars, terrapin and canvas-back
ducks? If we intend to
keep our house of lords in lordly
style, let ns accomplish the task
without any disgraceful parsimony.

Borae interesting statements made by
Owen Wister concerning tbe east and
tbo west are quoted by Mr. Arthur Sted
man In a sketch of the young author
"One thing I bave noticed," said Mr!
Wister, "regarding the east and the

country seams to be in tbe east while
the heart seems to be in the west, I may
perhaps mean that the west seems
cruder, although I never phrase it to
myself in just that way, but in travel
ins about there one is struck continual

with their interest in all people who
are in trouble. Their knowledge and
good feeling also are not confined to
their own part of the country and what
is going on tbere, whether it be pros
perity or adversity, but their interest
extends to the east That is to say, if
yon go to uncago or San Francisco.
or wherever the centers of population
are, yon will find that most people you
talk with are familiar with things in
new York and tbe east, and are inter
ested to know what New York and oth
er large eastern cities are doing, while,
on the other hand, when you return
from western regions to New York and
Philadelphia, people in those cities seem
very much less concerned with other
parts of the country and are more con
corned with their own immediate sur
roundings and life almost, I should
say, the least national, although far
more civilized. " New York Tribune.
