Mit. JOHNSON HEADY
WITH Si Ml E BILLS
One Will Seek to Regulate Liquor Li
censes, and Another for Public
Buildings at I.aureus and Union.
In a special to the Spartanburg Her
ald, under date of December 6, Mr. T.
H. Daniel, of Washington, says:
Representative Johnson wan asked
today by the Herald's correspondent
what he "had up his sleeve" in the
way of proposed legislation during the
present session of Congress.
"Well," said Mr. Johnson, "you see
there is no use to go ahead and intro
duce a number of bills at this early
day, because nothing can be done with
them. When a bill is introduced in
Congress, before anything can be done
with it, it must be referred to the
proper committee and considered by
that committee, which makes a favor
able report, or no report at all. No
committees have been appointed as
yet, except that on Banking and Cur
rency, which has been appointod out of
consideration of financial conditions,
There is no use to introduce bills until
committees to consider them arc ap
"But I have had some bills under
consideration long before Congress met,
and shall submit them to the House at
the proper time. One of the first I
shall introduce will be a bill to prevent
the issuance by the internal revenue
department of a license to any person,
firm or corporation to engage in the
manufacture or sale of intoxicating liq
uors until the applicant for such license
shall have furnished to the department
proof that he is permitted by the laws
of the community in which it is pro
posed to exercise the license to engage
in such business. You understand, at
present a blind tiger can get a license
from the United States government to
sell liquor in Spartanburg, and so he
has only to watch out for the laws of
the State. If my idea can be carried
out, he cannot get a license from the
federal government to sell liquor in
any locality where he cannot get a li
cense from the State. This will put a
double burden upon the blind tiger, and
will make his business less profitable.
"Another bill I have in mind is along
the same line. Its object will be to
prohibit common carriers from ship
ping intoxicating liquors into a State
whoso laws prohibit its manufacture
and sale. Congress has a right to do
this, under the interstate commerce
clause of the constitution, and I think
it nothing but just and proper that the
national government and the State
government should be harmonious?in
other words, when a state has a law
the nation should not afford a means of
breaking it under the protection of the
"These two bills may meet with
strong opposition, or with indifference,
but I believe they are just and should
be enacted into law. I shall, therefore,
use my best efforts to secure their pas
"At the proper time I shall offer
several bills of a local nature, and of
much importance to my own constitu
ents, and these shall have my first and
best attention. They will probably in
clude a bill for government buildings
at Laurens and Union.
"But I am not very much in favor of
talking too much about what I am go
ing to do. I'll, have to tell you more
about these things later on. Nothing
is ever done of any consequence until
after the holidays, when everybody gets
down to work with more vim."

"Tho barroom bully bran arrant cow

thin saying of tho late General Ros.>
craim as Ills topic, a speaker at a civic

ways of tho aveYngo "bad man" of the
modern cities. Tie read from a writing
ot General Rosecrans, familiarly known
os "Old Rosy," In which that officer de
scribed a roglment of men from Cin
cinnati in the civil war in which thero
were many of tho barroom bully class
who had been pressed Into the service
or entered as substitutes to earn a few
hundred dollars. When those men
came faco to faco with the grim fight
ers In gruy of the Oonfedoracy and
tbey realized that lu warfare tho rifle

real courage was mighty small and of
tho crnvenly coward sort.
"Better tako the polo faced, modest

you want real soldiers?men who can
faco the bullets or the bayonets of tho

they are outdone In an argumeut, want
to resort to bruto force to settle the

Rosecrans, and he should have known.

between the printer and his wife iu tho

and in the silent watches of tho night
she entered tho room where her hus

ciously changed "herr" to "narr." Tho
printer was arrested after tho book
had been printed and the mistake dis
covered, but his apprentice testified
that ho saw the wife steal Into the

But a worthy man remained behind

"Din yo ken what I oyo think at a

They don't mako it nowadays?not

years ago, and how good it was! Tho
com lot had to be cultivated, and it
was a long way from tho house, and It
was very hot up there on tho hillside.
When they loaded tho cultivator and
the hoes and spades on tho stone boat
and hitched, tho two horses to that dry
ground vessel, they stowed away as
part of the cargo a big stone Jug. And
when tho com lot was reached the Jug
was stowed away in a shady fonco
corner under tho butternut tree nnd
covered over with grass to keep it
cool. What was in tbo Jug? Swltchel.
It was made of vinegar, molasses, gin
ger and water. The water was drawn
from tho spring beside the kitchen and
was as cold as ice could have made it.
And tho stone Jug kept It cold. Tho
vinegar gave it a pleasant acidity, the
ginger a little "tang"?that's what they
called It up hi "the country"?and tho
molasses Just sweetened it a bit. And
how good It was to go ovor Into the
fence corner and take a few swallows
out of that jug of swltchel!

How Lottor? May Bo Mado Safe From
Even with tho most unroinantlc of
us ot-fteions sometimes arise when we
should like to"*mnke some memoran
dum or write some letter which cannot
be read except by those we wish to do
so. Here la a simple method:
Soak a sheet of note paper In cold
water und lay It perfectly lint upon u
pane of glnas. Place above It another
sheet, dry this time, and on tho upper
sheet writo your message with a fairly
hard pencil. Y<>n now destroy the dry
paper and allow all the moisture to
evaporate frour the wet piece. Dou't
hold it to tho fire, but let It dry nat
urally. If you then exumlue it close
ly you will see not the faintest trace of
writing, but if you moisten the paper
once more and hold It up to the light
you can rend quite plainly nil you
wrote. It will Bhow up like the water
mark on a postage stamp. This meth
od, by tho way, Is sometimes adopted
by convicts. They use their gruel
cans Instead of glass and a sharp piece
of wood for a pencil.
Another way Is less dirty and even
more effective Lay several Bheets of
paper on a flat surface and write upon
the top one. Thou romovo tho bottom
sheet, on which no impression appears.
If you hold this in the vupor of iodine,
however, tho writing will turn brown
and bo qulto legible. Tho explanation
Is plain. The uoto paper coutnlus

THE PURSER'S JOKE.
Why Roligioue Gorviocs Were Not Held
on That Trip.
On most of the big ocean steamers a
minister is usually found among the
passengers, and invariably he is called
upon on Sunday to conduct religious
service in the main dining saloon. Oc
casionally the man of the cloth seeks
tho purser and asks If he may conduct
n service on the Sabbath. A case of
this sort happened recently on ono of
the Red D steamers on the run from
New York to La Gunyra. A young
minister who three days before tho
steamer sailed had taken orders from
a eeminni*}', and a day later a wlfo
asked tho purser if he might conduct
religious service on tho following day,
which was Sunday. Tho purser re
plied that tho dining saloon was at his
disposal and that the passengers
would be informed. "At what hour
ishall tho service begin?" asked tho
young minister. Tho purser rubbed
his brow a moment nnd replied that
he could begin at "nine bells." The
minister and his bride appeared In tho
dining saloon at 0 o'clock In tho morn
ing and waited four hours for tho con
gregation, which did not come. On
tho following day he listened again for
"nine bells," but heard them not.?New

Sheathing a Ship.
Sheathing a ship Is covering tho bot
tom with a sheath of copper. In all
seas, but particularly In those of the
tropics, the hulls of ships are liable to
the attack of certain worms which
penetrate the hardest wood and have
been known in the course of a few
months to damage the hull so as to
render the vessel worthless. Copper
Sheathing protects the ship not only
against the attacks of these borers,
but also against decay, and Is especial
ly valuablo in the case of Iron ships,

ing brittlo when exposed to the action
