The Legislature Taking Things
V Easy. '
A Veatle Riat at taaaae Xeeeaaary
LectataleBaad Early Aajemra-anent-Meaator
SpRixoprELD. April 8. There is no
use in disguising the fact that this legu
lature is hiring a good time. The paj
is not princely, to be sure, but the work
is not onerous. When the preacher was
asked one time how much be received
for his services, he answered, "a dollar a
sermon." "That's blanked poor pay,
was the reply. "Yes, but its blanked
poor preaching," was the rejoinder.
There has been much unreasonable com
ment though, made upon the lack of pub
lic business performed unreasonable
because there has been a combination of
circumstances to prerent it being carried
on faster. The senatorial election was
one cause of delay, and if the truth must
be told, the republican managers wouldn't
have cared a straw if legislation had
failed altogether, provided they bad
elected a senator. Still tfcere are many
democrats here who openly declare their
wish that the legislature should get down
to work. The pay of f 5 a day is not a
sufficient inducement to keep them here
indefinitely. Another obstruction was
the necessary adjournment after the sen
atorial contest, as everybody was tired
out, mentally and physically. The n am
ber tbat were actually sick was large,
some of tbem critically so. And then
the democratic mind was so full cf rati
fication and jubilation that staid business
was for the moment forgotten, and the
republican mind wai so wearied and
deadened by the shouts of rictory, that
tbej, too, weie in no state for compre
hensive or intelligent work. Succeeding
on the.-e drawbacks csme the elections,
and everybody went home to vote and
wotk for his favorite candidates. But
now that all tbese matters have passed
intohistory.it is hoped that work shall
be begun in earnest, and still at the ses
sion today a large number were absent
and but little was done, an sdjournment
taking place for the day at about 11
o'clock. Of course, the work in commit
tees engages the greater portion of the
time, so tbat discussion in committee of
the whole is largely dispensed with.
Nothing definite has as yet been
Leari about the date of adjourn
ment. Should it occur at
an early day much of the proposed legis
lation in shape of bills will be left updone
and Derhaps. except in some instances, it
wouli be just as well, if not better.
There is such a multiplicity of bills up
on all tubiects aa to be almost bewilder
ing. Different members, too. are offer
in? bills upon the same subject, the only
difference being in the matter of form.
The state could manage to get along com
fortably fcr the neit two years with the
number of laws already on the statute
books, and if the wise men here would
give the world's fair legislation the neces
sary attention, pass an appropriation bill
and look after some other matters that
cannot very well be delayed and adjourn
without day. no one would murmur to
anv perceptible extent.
Tne people who never met Gen. Pal
mei would be surprised upon a first ac
quaintance. He is simplicity itself, lie
dresses in the plainest and most substan
tial way and rarely wears a necktie, his
full chin beard doing away with such a
necessity. The humblest citizen in the
state can stop him on the street and en
gage him in conversation, if he has any
thing to say. Be shakes hands with ev
eryone he knows, providing he hasn't
seen them for a little time. His language
i of tbe simplest and most direct charac
ter. No one could fail to understand its
meaning, no matter what the subiect. He
pays no heed to the ordinary conventional
ways, not that he does tbat for effect, as
some are apt to do, to attract attention,
but because he has no mind for such
matter. He may be self-conscious; if
so. he can hide it with wonderful clever
ness, as no one has ever accused him of
such a weakness. He is affability and
kindness itself and one leares his pres
ence feeling assured that he has been talk
ing or listening to a frank, honestearnest
man. The clever trickster fears him, tbe
simp'e and unlettered speak of him with
tbe highest praise. Of late years he is
not given so much to forensic efforts be
fore a jury, in bis practice of the law, but
appears at his best when calmly and log
ically arguing a point of law to the court.
When Judge Gresham was here a short
time ago and sat on the bench with the
district judge who holds court here
usually. Palmer was before them upon
some question of law. His language was
simple, forcible, direct and logical and
Judge Gresham leaned over his desk and
closely peered into the face of tbe
speaker, listening attentively to every
word. Tbe only questions spoken from
tbe bench were those asking for the
authorities. In the hearts of the people
here Palmer is revered, although republi
can newspapers aud politicians say things
of him tbat they do not believe. And the
otject cf this abuse moves on in the even
tenor of his way, talking with you as
cordially as if be did not know that two
hours before you were flaying bim alive.
' Dash him. it's his simple, good-natured
wa5s that plays the deuce with us," is tre
substance of an expression often used by
his political opponents. When news
csme this afternoon that Cregier was
beaten 10 Chicago, a shade passed across
his face and he murmured his disap
pointment. Representative Vinton returned today
and was in his seat in the house . He has
fully recovered and is prepared for any
amount of work.
The election of a republican mayor in
this city is do indication of a change oi
political feeling. The democrat was
beaten on a combination of local circum
stances. P. J. D.

One of the most pitiable sights is to

We noticed some one in the republican
caucus spoke of the McKinley bill as hav
ing given us 20 pounds of sugar for a
dollar. But how do the republicans
reconcile cheaper sugar with President
Harrison's remark that "a cheap coat
made a cheap man," and McKinlej's
statement that "cheapness and nasliness
go together?'' Then again, if it is such
a gooJ thing for the laboring man to
have one necessary of life cheaper, why
would it not be equally good to have
other things cheaper. And how about
those necessaries of life which the Mc
Kinley bill makes dearer? And further
more, how much is sugar really cheaper
when we are taxed to pay the two cents
per pound bounty? And if it is right
and just to pay a bounty to sugar-makers,
why would it not be equally right to pay
farmers a bounty when they are com
pelled to make 3 cent pork out of 60
cent corn? Is this condition of things
the "equal rights" we hear so much
