OUR CAPITAL LETTER
Some Opinious as to the Legisla
Repretenatve Yta'ea's Fatim-Tak-ins
Work Menator Oawfor.t .
.C tn Other Springfield
Spkisgfield. May 9. It would look
now as if the legislature would adjourn
finally on the 15th ot Jane or thereabouts
and tot before. It is true that much
work is being accomplished now, but the
members are taking their time to do it
and are not sitting up nights to any great
extent in order tlat a mass of legislation
may be turcei out whether it is actually
needed or not And in truth there is a
great deal of the proposed law-making
that is not needed now and never will be.
There is one feature of the assembly that
is noticeable and that is the reRu'arity
of the adjournments. Bills may come
and bills mtv go, but they go on forever.
Yesterday afternoon squads of honorable
gentlemen might be seen working their
way to the different outgoing trains s
that today the voice of the legislator is
not heard in the land. Irrespective of
all the arguments that have been used
the million dollar appropriation will be
granted, in alt probability, for the pur
pose of the world's fair, aid the state
board of agriculture, instead of a special
commission, will have charge of the
money and the exhibit generally. The
Vinton bill has knocked out the Merritt
proposition and during its progress the
Molina gentleman exhibited fighting qual
ities that would have done honor to John
L- Sullivan, only thev were displayed in
a different channel. It is safe to say thst
if Mr. Vinton would follow up legislation
as a part of his life work that he would
make a strong and painstaking repre
sentative of the people. As mentioned
in thiscorrespocdence last week be made
a good fight in the committee which was
ably followed up on the floor of the
house and bad the satisfaction of winning
success. Of all the members from your
district, Vinton stands out conspicuously
as an intelligent worker, and has had
sense to introduce and advocate bills
which the welfare of the people de
manded. On the other hand look at
Senator Crawford He has been floun
dering about in an attempt to do some
thing in the way of regulating stock
yards. It is the only kind of business of
which he is supposed to have any knowl
edge a familiarity with hogs and horned
brutes and vet the whole interference
with the stock yards was knocked into a
cocked hat the other day and Crawford
and everybody else in anyway connected
with tbe so-called reform were told that
they didn't know what tbey were talking
about. They were advised, in substance,
to ro and learn something about tbe
management of stock yards and then if
they had any grievance to put it into
shape, but not to go btllowiDg up and
down the country lor the sake of letting
their constituents hear them roar. They
were told plainly that all their nonsensi
cal talk was btiag done for political ef
fect, and to ttis was added language that
being interpreted, meant that they had
better hasten home and put their heads to
oak. Just think of Crawford with his
head in souk to make it softer! So
that when the record is made up it will
show that tbe long session has passed
and that Crawford has been "overhet" in
rattling around like a pea in a half bushel
measure and nothing o show for it ex
i-ept tbe disturbing noise which he made.
Payne made some effort on the asvlum
bill for your section of the country, in
conjunction with Vinton, but it takes a
call of tbe roll to ascertain whether Beats
is in tbe assembly or not.
Looking at these ficts, it might be
asked for what purpose were these non
tcting members sent here Crawford has
longer lease than the others, but at the
end ot bis term the people of the district
should promptly retire him or else take
tie odium of his boyish blundering and
s upidity upon themselves. He is a deci
mal fraction with a great many ciphers.
is to the other two Pyne and Beafs
ir is not likely they will ever ask to be
returned. Tbey seettieir useleesnefssnd
v ill understand that their proper sphere
of action is nearer tbe setting sun, in
SDme secluded pastoral occupation, to-
v ard tbe banks of tbe Mississippi. Craw
ford would aspire to bo president when
h 3 should. put himself in training for tbe
keeping of a junk shop.
The president is expected here on
Thursday and will spend an hour, with
tie natives and the assembled thousands
who will flock to this city to get a look at
gi andiatber s bat. In order to carry out
tte necessary display money had to be
raised, and one who was tolerably jjreen
w juld be apt to think the office holders
under Uncle Sam would be the first to
contribute liberally. The whole amount
to be raised was not a ere at deal, of
coarse, and should have been easily ob
ta ned from those holding government
oCices in tbe federal building, whose sal
ar es and fees combined amount to some
$20,000 a year. But their patriotism
didn't run that way. The postmaster
wes surly and dogged and 8tid he
wouldn't give a red because the committee
on arrangements didn't assign him a seal
in tbe carriage with the postmaster gen
ertl. Sow, if this individual
had been your postmaster. Wells, things
wculd have been different, because Wells
was born with a dignity that would adorn
any effice or any carriage, and besides he
is one of "them litery fellers' and he ed
ucates tbe world upon all manner of sub
jects through bis profound coatrioutions
to ais local organ. The world would find
difilculty in getting alone without a
Wills and an all-seeing providence has
placed one in nearly every town- But
as to our postmaster here he was not
bora with such distinguished qualities.
Ho vever, he has relented and has in a
bro ten-hearted way doled out a five dol
lar bilL And then there was the district
attcrney who draws an income from his
offlt e of about 6,000 a year and the col
lect ir who gets a salary of $4,500 and all
the rest, in fact, who are under obliga
tion to the gentleman with tbe hat who
is springing around the circle all these,
one might think, would have contributed
among themselves to defray the expenses'
of tlieir patron and their saint for their
stay of an hour, but they didnt, and up
totlla day only $15 in all had been
draw n from the pockets of those who are
livin r on the public pap. Of course, the
democrats corce tbe rescu without be
ing solicited and the necessary amount
will be promptly contributed. Various
reasons are assigned for this niggardl
nesa, one being that Senator Cullom, wto
will be here tomorrow, would not like
such favors shown the prefi :ent, for
reasons well known, and another is that
these darling creatures did not wish to
infringe upou the rrin!lples of civ 1 ser
vice reform The true reason, no doubi.
will be found in tbe fact that the present
incumbents feel that tbey have a mighty
poor cinch on the offices tbey now hold
and that after tbe next presidential elec
tion tbey may beein to pack their grips
and look out for fresh fields and pastu'es
new, and anv one who knows anything
of tbe republican barnacles of Springfield
knows that such a condition of things
would be worse to tbem than the pltgue.
From the plague there could be a ponsi
bility of recovery, but f om the loss of
office tbey would consider themselves
doomed tor eternity. F. J. D.
