SGLOITS NOW SIGHING TOR CLERKS
Darrow Takes His Seat In the Hon
Subtitute for the Sherman Item
izing Resolution Legisla
Springfield, Ills., Feb. 19. Repre
sentative Sherman makes the follow
ing statement in reply to recent news
paper criticisms: "There is no excuse
for this session of the legislature to
last more -.than, three months. e
ought to be out of here pot much later
than the middle of April. The mere
matter, however, of adjourning a few
weeks or even a month earlier Is not
of as much value as the enactment ot
needed remedial legislation. The claim
that itemizing the appropriations will
obstruct business and prevent an early
adjournment is unsound.
"What are we here for? Not to rusb
through millions of dollars of blanket
appropriations so say the least of it.
We ought to do business by business
methods. We ought to be as judicious
in spending the people's money as ill
spending our own. The average care
ful business man requires an itemized
account even in small matters. The at
tempt to run through in bulk millions
of dollars of appropriations ought to
be opposed by every houest man in
Delay In Adopting th Rnlea.
"The 'organization' could have adopt
ed the same rules now governing this
house within forty-eight hours from
the time the committee was appoint
ed. They went out under the gavel,
nnwhow. Why couldn't they have gone
out several weeks sooner? The pro
posal to itemize appropriation hills is
not an obstruction. Secretary of State
Hose, whose office appropriation aggre
gates a very large sum. made neces
sary by the great volume of business
in his office, furnishes a model which
may be profitably studied. The last
dollar of it is itemized.
Would Work Four Days m Week.
"The old complaint of working half
time is afflicting us. Somelxdy tell
me why we are not at our desks at
least, four days of the week. If we
tackled our work here as we do in pri
vate life a little more than a three
months session would give Chicago
her charter amendment and an en-
abling act, with home rule on traction
questions. It would give Illinois a civil
service law and a compulsory primary
law for every couuty in the state. I
am for a direct compulsory primary all
over Illinois. The idea that the people
require the intervention of delegates to
interpret who they want is absurd. The
people are fit to elect a ticket. Why
are they not fit to nominate that tick
et? That is the way to get public of
ficers fresh from the people."

SHERMAN'S RESOLUTION KILLED
IIeds of Department Will Not Be Re
quired to Itemize Tbelr Statements.
Springfield, Ills., Feb. 10. The house
committee on appropriations yesterday
killed the Sherman resolution requiring
superintendents of institutions and
heads of departments to submit with
their requests for appropriations item
ized statements of the purposes to
which the money Is to be put, by adopt
ing a joint resolution on the same sub
ject. The substitute, if it is adopted
by the house, will in all probability
meet with defeat iu the senate. The
substitute was offered by Representa
tive Undly and is as follows:
"Itesoivea hy the House ot represent
atives, the senate concurring herein,
that the officials and boards in charge
of the various state Institutions and
departments are requested in present
ing to the appropriations committee
their requests for appropriations for
ordinary expenses of their respective
institutionsand departments, to specify,
so far as possible, the items entering
into such estimate, and said items shall
be Incorporated in the appropriations
bills reported so far as possible."
Sherman was present and addressed
the committee in behalf of his resolu
tion. He said the aggregate of the ap
propriations had grown enormously
from what they were in early days
when the present practice was adopt
ed, and that If the spirit of his resolu
tion was carried out it might take a
little more time, but he did not think
it would require any extraordinary la
bor. ' . .
Llndly followed Sherman, and said
he was in sympathy with the spirit of
the resolution, but he did not think it
was practicable and he offered the sub
stitute above mentioned. This com
mittee, said Undly, represented but
one branch of the legislature through
which all appropriation bills must pass.
Unless there was ' uniform action ic
the senate and the house a bill coming
over to the house might have to be
changed and sent back to the senate
and thus its patroge be delayed. He
therefore propod a concurrent resolu
tion. Old Vets to Have Tbelr Wire.

FARM HELP SCARCE
Agriculturists of This County
Confronted With the
COST OF PB0DU0TI0N INCREASING
Renting Out Laud Often More Profit
able Than Employing
Not only is the cost of production
being increased by the large wages
in the factory and workshops, but
the farmers, in this vicinity nt least,
are meeting with the same condition.
Abundance of work at occupations
considered by many more desirable
in the towns and cities has lately
drained the country of many of its
best and most energetic young men
to an extent not experienced hereto
fore. Therefore for several years there
has been a constant increase in the
wages paid competent help on the
farm. It has not been long since
the farmer had no difficulty in hiring
a good man for $1S per month and
board. Now a good man asks and re
ceives $25 and sometimes even as high
as $.'50 a month with board, and usu
ally a horse kept free of charge.
Land Reins; Rented.
Farmers in this vicinity this year
notice a still further advance in wa
ges, and although they are in most
cases perfectly willing to pay them.
it is not uncommon for men to have
more land than they can attend to
themselves to rent it out rather than
attempt to farm it with help at pre
One other condition that tends to
increase the wages of farm help is
the increasing degree of skill that
farm work requires.' A few years ago
any green foreigner could take up
with farm work, and shortly do any
thing that was required of him. Now
the machinery is grown more and
more complicated, till the operator
must be one who knows something
of mechanics and is able to handle

a laxative is needed the remedy which is given to them to cleanse and sveeten and
strengthen the interned organs on which it acts, should he such as physicians would
sanction, because its component parts are known to be wholesome and the remedy
itself free from every objectionable quality. The one remed3T which physicians and
parents, wcll-infonncd, approve and recommend and which the little ones enjoy,
because cf it3 pleasant flavor, its gentle action and its beneficial effects, is-Syrup
of Fig3 and for th3 zeme reason it is the only laxative which chculd be used ty
fathers and mothers.
Syrup of F133 is the only remedy which acts gently, pleasantly and naturally
without griping, irritating, cr nauseating and which cleanses the system effectually,
without producing that constipated habit which results from the use of the old
time cathartics and modern imitations, and against which the children should be co
carefully guarded. If you would have them grow to manhood and womanhood,
. Btroug, healthy and happy, do not give them medicines, when medicines are not
needed, and when nature needs assistance in the way of a laxative, give them only
" the simple,' pleasant and gentle Syrup of Figs.
Its quality is due not only to the excellence of the combination cf the laxative
principles of plants with pleasant aromatic syrups and juices, but also to our
original method of manufacture and as you value the health of the little ones, dc
