Bflls Now Before Committees ot Congress
Atract Much Attention.
The Chicago '.Record's postal savings
bank bill was introduced in the house of
representatives on the opening day of the
congressional session by Representative
Lorimer, the Chicago member of tho
house committee on postoflSces and post
roads. The bill was referred at once to
the postoflice committee, according to tho
usual custom. it was introduced in the
senate a day or two later by Senator Ma?
son, who is a member of the senate post?
oflice committee. It is upon these com?
mittees that at tent inn must center for the
present nf those interested iu the passage
of a law for the establishment of the pos?
tal savings hank system. The earnest agi
tntlon among the people has forced upon
all tho members ot Congress cons dera?
tion of this subject, with the result that
it is discussed in Washington to an ex
tent that it never has before. The chair?
man of tho bouse committee Is an oppo?
nent of the. postal bank Idea, but other
leading mem bei s are friendly to the plan.
The first and, Indeed, tho severest test of
strength, therefore, must come in the
postofilce committee. If a postal savings
bunk bill is reported favorably by that
committee and brought to a vote in the
house,there c?n bo but little doult of the
outcome on tho floor. Fortunately, as
the result of popular agitation, and be?
cause of the aggressive spirit which the
friends of the measure in Congress are
manifesting, the subject is one thtt can?
not be ignored or pigeonholed. Never
before has tho number of members act?
ively interested in the success of this sub?
ject been so great.
Sentiment in favor of postal savings
bauks seems to be even stronger iu the
senate than among the members of the
ho JSC. It is expecteu that a bill will be
reported from the. senate committee with?
out great difficulty, with the chances
good lor its passage through the senate.
The more that members of Congress,
and especially of the postoflice commit?
tees, can be made to feel individually the
deep interest of the public iu this matter,
?the more likely they will be to take early
action looking to the establishment of the
postnl savings bank system.?Chicago
KING OF THE WHEAT PIT.
.Joseph Leiter, Who Made Thirty Mill
The new Napoleon cf 'Finance has ap?
peared in the person of young Joseph
Leiter, of Chicago. Five oi six years ago
his father gave him a paltry million dol?
lars, to see. ns he expressed it, "what
sort of stuff tiie col lege-bred dmlo was
made of." He is"now*80 years oh' and is
worth $30,000,000 just ?1.000,000 for
every year of his life.
Young Leiter calls himself a self-made
man.*and in a sense he Is. With the firsi
million he purchased a large [und varied
stock of experience. He . bought it in
large chunks and profited"by It. Then,he
turned it to pootl account. He cornered
the market in experience. He had se?
cured all there was to be had, his money
wan nearly all gone, and then he began
to realise on his investment. He began
unload in? large blocks of experience on
others and realized a hsndsoine profit.
To day he is the king of the Chcago
wheat pit. He went into the deal six
months ago a novice. He now holds all
the cards. The veterans who in othet
times have won through sheer force of
money, and have slaughtered opponents
in the grain arena without mercy oi
pity,find themselves up against the hard?
est gt me of their lives.
TO LEAVE THE MILITIA.
Chicago, Dec. 21.?The Times-Herald
says: Trade unionists are required by thj
Chicago Federation of Labor to leave the
National Guard at once. This was 'the
unanimous decision teached by tho dele
gates at their regular weekly meeting. It
was said without contradiction that, a
union man could not consistently serve
in the militia and incur the risk of being
called out to shoot dow n his fellow tiades
unionists who were on st rike for the bet
terwent of their economic, conditions. |So
a unionist who is a member of the Illinois
National Guard will be required to secure
discharge from military service at once.

'?'he fourth annual rnort of the Luthe?
ran Orphan Homo of the United Synod
at Salem, Va., will be issued to-day. by
the Sentinel Company. To interest the
readers in this work extracts will be
given from the report itself: "Perhaps
the Lutheran Church has no juster title
to distinction then Its record lor benevo
levt work. It early engaged in the work
of foreign missions; and the first orphan
home of the Protestant^ world was found?
ed by Francke at Halle in 1098. [It still
exist,s as one of tho largest of all'siniilar
institutions. This form of Christian ac?
tivity and missionary effort has been
taken up by all parts of our church; and
wherever Lutherans aro found in cons Id
erable numbers, whether in Europe or
Asia or Africa, there are 'to bo found or?
phan homes. In reviewing the work of
the past year,wo have reason again to lift
our hearts in grat itude to Him who is the
source of every blessing. The home has
been prospered and blessed. Tho health
of the children has been exceptionally
goal and they ha\e made gratifying pro?
gress in their general training. Last
Easter four of the older girls nutted ivith
tho church. The receipts ot the treasurer
have been sufficient to meet all current
expenses. During the year, out of a large
number of applications, the executive
committee teceived flvechlldreu. Twer.ly
sIa children have been cared lor through
out.the year, at an 'average cost, of less
than sj'ijO each. This is a record for econ?
omy unsurpassed, perhaps, in the history
of orphan work in this country. For a
lack of room tho executive committee hss
been compelletl to decline a number of
applications Tho home needs larger ac?
commodations, and as soon its the prop?
erty is paid for or special funds aro
placed at'our disposal, steps should be
taken for the erection of a [second build?
ing. This i? the more necessary, as It
seems to be the wish of tho church that
the children bo taught, in the home. Tho
dee 1 to the property is now In our hands,

given by the home for the) purchase
