CANDIDATES FOB SPEAKER.
Any member of the legislature can
be a candidate for speaker. Most of
them are, A merry war Is In prospect.
Several of the old Lorlmer election
guards have announced themselves as
candidates. A self-seeking combina
tion is being formed. Some of these
candidates for speaker are merely
four-flushing, and trying by project-
ing themselves into the fight for the
speakership, to attract attention to
themselves as claimants for chairman
ships of big committees.

merite. He should be a democrat in

ANOTHER VOTE OX IRISH ROME
The latest tests of the strength, of
parties in the house of commons Indi
cate that the present liberal ministry
will be forced to ask the electorate
of the united kingdom for one more
vote of confidence before Irish home
rule can become an established fact.
The majority upon which the govern
ment can depend has nearly vanished
several times. In critical situations,
and any day another test of the tem
per of the house may oust the As-
The best informed politicians in
London expect to see another general
election before the home rule issue
can be finally disposed of. When
that test of public sentiment comes
there will be one of the most bitterly
contested campaigns in the history of
the united kingdom.
Recent threats of civil war in Ulster
have done much to shake the confi
dence of weak-kneed liberals in the
wisdom and timeliness of the policy of
the present government The conserv
atives, on the other hand, have been
encouraged by numerous victories in
recent bye-elections and they -will go
into another fight with the energy
born of their consciousness that if
they fall again to carry the country at
the polls their last chance of success
ful resistance to the liberal program
for Ireland will pass away forever
It is a prospect for hard fighting
such as Americans, in their moat
strenuous campaigns, can hardly un
derstand. The intensity of feeling
aroused by the home rule issue is of
the kind which leads to common talk
of civil war In Ireland. The social
and business future of the united
kingdom Is be'.ieved by millions of
voters to be at stake upon the final
battle over the question of self-gov
ernment for that island.
When that crisis comes, America, as
heretofore, will give its sympathy and
good wishes to the home rule cause
and the liberal party, by a very heavy
preponderance of the public senti
ment of the country.
COL" 11 T It ILK8 AM) THE LAW'S
The supreme court of the United
States, through a committee consist
ing of the chief Justice and Associate
Justices Lurton and VanDerventer,
has for about a year and a half been
working on a plan for the revision of
the rules of that body and of the sub
ordinate national courts. The opinion
OI ever a 1 3 country
sought, and Justice Lurton went
which it is believed will be a great
improvement on the former rules,
which, despite great changes in the
business of the courts and of the coun
try, have not been revised for 50 years.
The chief justice in explaining the
new rules claimed for them improve
ment in four respects. The first re
lates to the exercise of power by
ft-deral courts. The second simplifies
the modes of pleading to bring the
parties quickly to an Issue. The third
reform Is as to taking testimony in
patent and copyright cases to render
each work less expensive.
Probably the most important reform
was that recited by the chief justice
as the fourth and provides for the
taking of testimony in courts in most
cases instead of referring the matter
to a special master or referee to take
testimony and report back to the
court. Hereafter lawyers who encum
ber the records in equity procedure
may find themselves subject to a fine.
The new rules provide that testimony
shall be printed in narrative form in
stead of by questions and answers.
The rules also are drawn to eliminate
dilatory pleading and prevent rever
sals on account of mere technical
words that do not go to the subject
matter of the controversy.
Provision is made that preliminary
Injunctions shall not issue without
notice to the party sought to be en
joined and other restrictions are
thrown about the Issue of temporary
injunctions and restraining orders.
The new rule on Injunction pro
vides: "No preliminary Injunction shall be
granted without notice to the opposite
party, nor shall any temporary re
straining order be granted without
notice to the opposite party unless it
shall clearly appear from apocifie
facts shown by affidavit or by the
verified bill that immediate "and, lrr.
Several times within the past few
months we have bean asked to write
something on "The Value of Paper in
the Home," It is a timely subject ana
I am sure all will be interested in its
various usee, but we shall have to di
vide it into several articles. As most
women know something of the paper
bag, we shall tell of its value, and
other things will follow later. Of all
that has been said, written and dem
onstrated on paper bag cooking far
and near within the past few months,
it would seem there was very little oc
casion or necessity for further elab
oration on the sublet. There are some
things, however, which are not clear
to the housekeepers in the use of
Whenever a new departure is made
in any science there is a reason for
it. This was true of Mr. Soyer, the
great London chef and originator of
this particular method of cooking. Tn
an his experiments and tests be had
a principle on cooking which he held
constantly in mind. First, all foods
were Improved in flavor; second, very
little if any Of the food value was
destroyed; third, less attention was
necessary while in the oven and less
heat need he used to accomplish all
this; last, but not least, the heat
must pass entirely around the bag
while cooking. It is not a new Inven
tion, but never before has it been ap
plied as systematically as In the pres
ent series of experiments.
I was asked the other day, "Can
we cook everything In these bags?"
Tou have heard, no doubt, of the
great painter, who, when asked how
he mixed his paints, replied: "With
brains, sir." We need this same ele
ment well mixed with all cooking, but
particularly when some new advice
or method is used, such as paper bag
cooking, brains must be greatly in evi
dence. It is so easy to take up with new
fads for awhile and then drop them;
this is expensive in time, effort and
money to the housekeeper. It is much
better to find out what, why or where
this cooking is better than any of our
former methods and then apply these
principles to the work. For instance,
Mr. Soyer states, "the bags must be
laid on a wire broiler so the heat can
pass entirely around the food." The
broiler in our ovens are made from
wires too far apart to have the ex
perienced housekeeper try to remove
the bag from the oven when the food
is done. The bag Is apt to break and
the contents spilled. Here is where
brains come to the rescue. Plan some
device not necessarily mine where
the wires are closer together than
those of the broiler. My own exper
ience with apples, where I lost all of
the Juice trying to get them out of
the oven, made me think and think
until I said: "Yes, my wire cake-cooler
is Just the thing and I'll also see if
there Is not a better baj made." Both

of those "thinks" have added to my
success in this kind of cookery. I now
have a nice, white, clean, tough, fibre
bag which I lay on this wire mat.
and never once have I had a bag
break and the heat and air circulat
ing around it, made it seem even
stronger than when it went into the
oven. This is what I mean by prin
ciples in this cookery. If the bags
are placed on the pans as recommend
ed by some, the purpose for which
these bags were Intended is a created.
If one is a novice in the art of cook
ing and, remember, food must be
carefully seasoned and prepared as in
any other method of cooking and
not willing to exercise care and
thought, or from lack of experience,
why. for such housekeepers I would
say, put your bags into a pan only un
til you have confidence in your abill
ty to handle them with ease and care.
They need no watching or handling
after they are in the oven.
Meats, fish, fowl, most vegetables,
puddings, fruits, fruit cakes and
many other things of which I feel
quite sure, but have not had time nor
opportunity to try, are all better for
being cooked in these paper bags.
Roast chicken Trim and singe
chicken neatly. Put a lump of but
ter on each side of the breast, salt
and pepper and tie with a clean
string and season. Butter a good-siz
ed bag. The chicken itself supplies
so much steam and fat that less but
ter than usual is required. Put in
the chicken, breast up, fold the bag
and seal. Cook in the lower part of
the oven, keeping a moderate heat. A
four to five-pound chicken will take
45 to 60 minutes. If Btuffed, allow
15 minutes more.
If you desire a thick gravy -with
your chicken, put a' small frying pan
under the bag at the time it is done.
Pflncture the bag with a fork allowing
the Juice to escape in the pan. When
all is collected, remove the pan to
the top of the stove, add a little cream
In the casual way, and you will have
a gravy which is fine.

Roberts, the detective, "but the most
Important of all is distributing the bills
after they are made. There's more
room for Ingenuity In this part of the
work than any other, and more coun
terfeiters are tracked from this clew
than any other. All sorts of devices
are cesorted to to get the stuff In cir
culation. Persons are roped la by be
ing offered an enormous price for some
thing they own, and when they get
their pay find that tbe money they
have received la counterfeit la such
cases the transaction is usually large.
and when It is completed the rascals
disappear without leaving any trace.
Of methods whereby the bills are put
into circulation la a small way and con
tinuously a case that fell Into my
hands a few years ago Is about the
best example X ever met with.
MI was sent to a banker wbo had
reported some five dollar 'bill counter
felts on his bank's circulation. Every
now and again a lot of these bills
would appear, be absorbed and after
awhile another lot would find their
way into the hands principally of
shopkeepers. The only clew that any
body had wss this: An old man one
day went. into a drug store and. after

looking carefully over some toothbrush
es, bought one, paid for it with a five
dollar bill and received $4.70 in change.
"The clerk had received through a
customer. Who was beyond suspicion,
one of these same bills before which
had been pronounced tf counterfeit and
was suspicious of this one. But In
stead of -refusing' it he gave the man
his change and sent a boy after him to
see where he went. While the boy was
gone the clerk took the bill he had re
ceived to the bank, where It was pro
nounced spurious. The boy saw tbe
old man who had passed It go Into a
certain house, then returned to the
drug store and reported the fact. A
watch was set upon the boutte. but tbe
party wbo had gone in there was uot
seen to come out or again enter it.
"This Is the point at which I took
the case. It may he supposed that my
first move would be to call at the
bouse on some pretext and And out
who lived there. Any such act might
stand against me in tbe future. In
stead. I rented a room opposite the,
suspected premises, where from a win
dow 1 could keep it under constant
surveillance, and spent mauy an hour
watching it. Several times 1 sat up
till daylight in tbe morning hoping I
might see some suspicious circum
stance. An elderly woman lived In
the house, who. 1 learned, was a
widow with two of three little chil
dren." She did not appear to bnve any
lodgers, though there was a card In a
window, "Room to Rent." I saw one
or two persona who were passiug look
at the card, ring the bell, enter aud
come out, but durisg my watch the
room was not hired.
"One day I received notice tbtt a
counterfeit bill bad been passed at a
meat store, another at a newsstand and
still another at a hardware store. In
deed, the reports of the passing of
these bills enme in from all over the
city. One of tbe persons on whom they
were passed had submitted to be vic
timized in order to catch the perpetra
tor. Not being sure that the bill was
counterfeit, he hnd pursued tbe name
course as that pursued by the drug
clerk. The person who had offered the
bill was a woman. She had been fol
lowed, and the house she entered, was
watched. But sbe was uot seen mak
ing an exit nor did xhe ever again ap
pear to tbe watcher or any one elite
"When I bod fathered these addi
tional facts I felt sure that I had met
with conditions that would be very
difficult to unravel. And yet It appear

me that a man in a house directly op

that he appeared to have no business.
