will scire one jrood parpo?eln calllcjc
attention to tbe mileage expenses al
lowed in the-last legislature. WegiTe
a list below of house and senateuia d
aruoant drawn by each member. In
the house Hon. "Ffsh" Myers leads
the list, having drawn mileage on
four separate junketing committee.
It was a cold day when "Fish" did
not propose a "joint visting commit
tee" that wonld swell his mileage ac
count. If defeated once lie would
bob up again, or go and have a friend
in the senate propose ft and then get
it through the house Long exper
ience gave htm the advantage of new
members and his industry and check-
classify him with the immortal.
Many others did the same.
In the senate the milage nestor was
A. W. Gowan, but as he travels several-
hundred miles by stage he was
probably Justly entitled to it, a wcrt
many ''others. The constitution al
lows memteri 10 cents a mile each-way
for'attendlng Hie legislature, and it
Is only where members propose various
junketing trips in the name of visit
ing committees that the nuisance be
Mr. Moorliead reported the mile
age for the house members. He was
chairman of the committse. Of course
his committee had to have a clerk
during the entire session, although
the only work was making one report
that would go on a sheet of foolscap
It is notorious that with few excep
tions members of the legislature of
J895 passed free over the railroads and
paid no fare during the entire session.
The fame legislature appropriated the
sums below to pay the milcago of Its
members. The great bulk of this
money went into the pockets of the
legislators. Tiie figures in detail
makes interesting reading for the
struggling taxpayer. They show
that mllccge was drawn in 1895 as fol
lows: The senate drevr mileage to the
amount of urprlslng
that the president, who of all men
would not be without a pass, who was
only a member of the committee on
rules, drew $95.00. His constitutional
mileage would have been 810.80. "Mr.
Simon may have been on some visit
ing committee, but that Is unusual.
The. thirty senators cost for mileage
The sixty members of the house
drew $3,374.30 mileage, or 802.37 each.
TheitotalMulleage drawn by house and
sexate was $-"1,007.40. The -speaker of
the house drew 00 cents mileage and
seems to have been on no visiting
committees that cost any mileage.
Readers of The Jourkal, are re
quested to cut out these llgurcs and
preserve them. In our next weekly
political review we shall print the ex
penditures of the last legislature for
clerk hire, showing the amount ex
pended by house and senate. These
figures are taken .from the printed

The editor of Tuk Journal does
not need to explain why lie was put on
no visiting committee or investiga
tion committees. He denounced most
of those committees as mere junkeU,
and opposed them in every parliamen
tary manner, and with others of like
mind succeeded in limiting them as
to number of chrksand perdieni of
clerks. As most of those committees
were mere junket and whitewashing
enterprises calculated to cover up
frauds, extrawigancc and unlawful
administration, and merely gotten up
to draw mileage and employ clerks, it
was rather an honor than a reflection
for a -member to have been left off.
The editor of The Journal lives in
Salem, the scat of government, and
that is supposed to be the capital and
living at the Capital could not claim
to be living somewhere else and was
not entitled to mileage. This is said
.n explanation of his conduct in not
drawing any, but not for the purpose
any Pharisaical political honesty, as
he firmly believes in public servants
drawing all the salarles.fees and mile
age that they are honestly entitled to
draw under the constitution and laws
but not one cent more.

Froebel, tbe great promoter of the kin
dergarten system of teaching children paid!
"Let parents not liveor their children, but
with them." The mother who understands
this sentiment lives with, even her unborn
child. She studies to be wise about herself
and the little life she is fostering. She does
all she can to give her child a fair start in
life, by giving it a ptrong veil developed
body. All through babyhood, childhood
and yotJUi she lives with her son or her
daughter. .Especially her daughter she will
keep near her. She will allow no false
modesty to stand in the way of that daugh
ter's knowledge of herself, of herpossiblH
ties, of her perils. She will teach her that
happy, healthful motherhood ia an honor,
a blessing. That sickness is a mistake, a
breaking of nature's law. But there are
times of unavoidable overdoing when the
system becomes run-down.
