When the legislature coaYsmed the few was txyimmm 3 that owing to the number of inexperienced men in both brandies of it there wcraM be bad Il lation. Bj the way, the editor of thie pa per has been eroneouslv quoted as saying, earl j in the session, that nothing would be done. He did, however, like a great many others, express the belief that busi ness would be much retarded by the fact of their being so few old members in it. This fear was well grounded, and time showed that it was a safe prediction. The inexperience of members was shown at an early day, in efforts to suspend the rules in order to advance bills on the cal endar and discussions over points of order which the merest tyro in parliamentary law could decide without arguments. We doubt if there is a single member of either house who will not now agree thai the EuspemJonof rules to advance a par ticular bill, or to carry out a particular project, retards legislation and, as a rule, retards the passage of the bill or resolu tion intended to be advanced.- They learned this before the final adjourn ment. There is another great evil which has grown up of late years in the proceed ings of both houses. There was very little of it before 1868, but it has increasd to an alarming extent, and has been pro lific &t muoh trouble during the last ses sion. We refer to the practice of putting measures on third reading, or final pas sage, "subject to amendment and de bate." We believe every member will now agree with us, that such a thing should never be done except in matters of great importance in the closing hours of the session. There is no need of arguments to show that all measures should be per fected in committee of the whole, where there is an opportunity to discuss every point without being restricted to the rules which govern the house or senate when in ordinary session, with the speaker and presiding officer of the senate in theohairs. But the session was brought to an end, notwithstanding the attempt to override rules, in a manner very creditable to it. A large amount of business was trans acted, and, in the maiii, finished up very well. No very bad me sires were pBssed, and most of the good measures, those whioh ought to have been, were finally pushed through. The body as a whola was, we believe, the ablest and the most honest and up right of any which has convened for a number of years. There were in it many men for the first time, who will be heard from in the management of the affairs of the state in the future. We cannot close without saying that there was one thing left undone that should have been passed upon. We re fer to the Price raid claims. This is a matter which not only this, but many preceding legislatures have ignored, and we believe wrongfully. The time will ccme when this class of claims will be taken ud and those that are iust be al lowed. But we did not start out to condemn, but rather to approve. There have not been many sessions ot a legislature in Kansas about which so much good and bo little bad can beaid. F. P. Baker in Topeka Union. CAPITAL NOTES. Topeka Journal: An old soldiers' re anion ib in progress in the halls of the federal building near the pension de partment. No particular regiment or company is meeting there but hundreds of old veterans from as many companies are on hand awaiting their turn to draw the quarterly pension from the United States surplus. Many have to wait for an hour or more and during the time they tell old war stories and reminiscen ces, and how and when they lost a leg, an arm or an eye. Many acquaintances are made and followed by explanations which only renew old companionship, but for the most part these are the same men that have marched up the stairs of the government bnildiag ever since the office waa established here. The man who has just secured his pension is j amusing. He takes his money with an eagerness which is displayed on every, feature and which causes the veterans who surround him to smile. The men are not the only ones who are permitted to draw a quarterly payment from this office for yesterday a long line of sol diers' widows were given preference and waited on in advance of the men. Two million, one hundred and fifty thousand dollars will be consumed in paying the demands for this quarter on the Topeka office alone, the greater part of which, of course, is sent out by mail in vouchers. A very important notice has Dean re ceived from S. M. Stoskslager, commis sioner of the general land office, announc ing that by executive orders, dated Feb ruary 19, 1889, the president ot the United States has, pursuant to law, di rected that the land offices now located at Concordia, Independence and Wichita be discontinued and the records and archives thereof transferred to and con solidated with the land office at Topeka. The changes above mentioned have al ready been carried imto effect This Mans that there was little or no busi ness left to be transacted by the outside offices and that the bulk of the public lands in this state have been disposed of. Governor Humphrey has appointed Jacob M. Balderston as judge ot the court of common pleas, which the legis lature provided for Sedgwick county. He also appointed Senator Francis G. Price, of Ashland, to be judge of the new thirty-first district. Articles of incorporation of the Tope ka, Westmoreland and Marysville rail road company have been filed with the secretary of state. The capital stock is $1,000,000. The directors named for the first year are John B. Mulvane, H. G. Linn, J. B. Evans and J. D. Patrison, of Tcpeka; John W. Smith, J. W. Fitz gerald, A. 0. Merritt, A. Bichards and A. B, Pomeroj, ot Pottawatomie county. This line would form a heady fink in connecting two parts of the IGssomri Faeiflc system, or, it woald give the San ta F a start in an haportaai direction, j CRITICISMS. Harrison's Address Freelyand Generally Commented Upon. A Majority of the Dominion Press Treat the President's Utterances With Great Marked Respect, While Some Papers Make Use of Very Uncomplimentary Adjenves. Toeosto, Osr., March 9. -Referring to President Harrisoa's inaugural address the Empire (Conservative) says: "President Harrison's inaugural address is not a startling document, bat ia appar ently the utterance of an honest, honorable man, who feels deeply the responsibility of his h:gh positicn and is determined to do his duty to the peopls over whom he has been called to preside The tone through out the message is high, and there Beems to be the ring of sincerity in the excellent ad vice hegives on many important subjects." The Mail (Ind.) says: "General Harri son's message is not a document whieh is likely to became history as th6 straightfor ward utterance of a man who holds his ideas honestly. Though f ome of them are pecu liar, tneir deliverance ia entitled to certain respect. The president voiced the opinion of sensible psoole as to keeping out of wars ana jingoism; he uttered aome wise words as ta the civil service: but taken as a whole the message is characterized by placid com monplaceneee, which is, after al', far better than mook heroics and inflated bnnoombe." The Globe (Liberal) says: '"President Harrison's rather bombastic aidre33 seems t? signify that be means to enter upon a polioy of expenditure that would delight the heart of our own Sir John. The president may be congratulated on having discovered anew name for a policy that enhancss the price of the people s necessaries. He calls it commercial emancipation." South Dakota to Springer, Greeting. Hubon, S. D.f March 9. A number of Huron gentlemen have forwarded to Wil liam M. Springer a souvenir in the shape of a leather medal six inches in length, on which is the following inscription in gold letters: To William Springer, who, having been so instructed by the housa of representatives, rather than be in contempt sacrificed his own princip!e3 and magnanimously opened tne patnway to statenooa to bourn Dakota. Fiat jastitia. Kuans principa. The medal was sent to Hon. ''Sunset" Cox, with a request that he present it to Mr. Springer with tha following letter: To Hon. William Springer, M. C, Washington, D.G.: A few of the host of your Dakota friends, appreciating thoroughly your truly nohle and thoroughly disinterested services in be half of South Dakota, desire to present to you this testimony of their esteem. We remember with wnnt piognant anxiety and grief you gave up the cherished plans of your heart; how many sleepless night3 you parsed, as nobly and alone you fought for all th ise vital issues without which hope would have been lost and Dakoti a dream; how single handed yoa fought the five ene mies of Dakota in the conference commit tee, and paid "live or die, survive or perish," or words to that effect, "though I give up everything still v, ill I cling to the oherished objeot of my heart. Dakota shall agatn vote for the temporary capital or she shall for ever remain a territory." Mob!est of thy race. Whenever the re turning Bun shall a?ain bring round the birthday of the father of his country, shall not his fame, his integrity pale before the incorruptible, the matchless integrity, the statesmanlike character of him whose name we inscribe on this medal, now awarded to you. Hail, sweet Will-I-am; hail and fare well." They Must be Endorsed. Washington, D. C, March 11. An em phatic declaration regarding the distribu tion of patronage comes from tho White house. It is to this effect: When appoint ments are made the republican congressman from the distnotmu3t endorse the appointee. The mite signing of an applicant's paper will not do. Tne congressman must bs prepared to Fay to the piesident or the cabi net officer nukirg the appointment: "I indorse this application and am will ing to b9 held responsible for this man's good ODnduct in office. I know ho ib fit and will give good satisfaction." Only on such endorsements will appoint ments be made. President Harrison, in speaking of this matter, said he remembered very well how it was when he was a senator; he had signed many a paper for men he would not have b sen willing to be held responsible for. Me ea:d he believed in the senators and repre sentatives of the party having the control ing voice in the distribution of local pat ronage, but he did not believe in dispens ing this patronage through them in such a way that they could dodge responsibility for bad appointment?. They must take the re- spon-ibuity witn tne patronage. Acting on this pointer from the White house, the state delegations are meetijg and formally agreeing on names which they can indorse i acordance with the presi dent's suggestions.

C With simple and solemn ceremony in the presence of all the wisdom and authority embodied in the co ordinate branches of the government, and surrounded by the repref entatives of all the great nation s on the face of the globe, Ben jamin Harrison was inducted into the high est office within the gift of the the Ameri can people. Gathering the reins of power as they fell from the grasp of his predeces sor, he took the oath which bound him to the service of his country and charged him self with the destinies of sixty million peo ple. With wondeful patience the expectant spectators waited for the proces -ion while the inauguration ceremonies were in pro gress. The rain had abated somewhat and taken the form of a fine driving mist, It trickled from thocf ands of umbrellas and ran in rivulets down toe backs of those un fortunates who did not possess these useful implements. Deptaall of theunloward surroundings the crowd preserved its good numor and paesea tne long interval m Hing ing jokes and jibes at self important and isolated members of the parading organiza tions who were hurrying along in undigni fied haste to join their comrades.' Fir. a ly the head of the great procession turned into Pennsylvania avenue on its march to the White house and inter st cessed in all else. Forty-eight yea s ago William. Heary Harrison on bis white horse he ded a pro cession of 4.00J patriots on this same route. At that day Admiral Porter (then a lieu tenant) said that it was the finest ragea-1 in the world. Today irobably 49,001) men were in line to honor the grandson, many of them coming from sections of the country whioh, in 1841, were tracts of uninhabited territory. The elements warred upon them but they held their own bravely. The ceremonies in tho senate chamber concluded, came the most tolemnand im posing event or the day when the chief mag istrate of the United States, chosen by hiB fellow countrymen, was in their presence to take the oath of orhce and swear to defend the constitution and laws of the land. The spectacle, though undoubted y marred by the weather, was worthy of &uch an event. In a driving rain 6torm were coantless thousands of citizens of the ropublic hoarse ly cheering and shouting the name of tha president. When tbe cheering had partially subsided Chief Justice Fuller arose and baring his abundant white locks to the rain, ho held a Bible in his right band ready to administer the oath of office. General Harrison and Sergeant-at-arms Canaday removed their hats. It was a most impressive scene. Stand ing with uncovered htas in tbe midst of a pelting raia t-torm the chief justice anJ the president-elect, eurrounded by high officers of state and the presence of an immeose multitude of citizer.8, faced each other with bowed heads while the former read the oath of office in a low tone of voice. The oath recited is in the following words: "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully exeoate the office of president of the United States, and will, to the best of my ability. preserve, protect and defend the constitu tion of tbe United States." At the conclusion of the reading of the oath, the presidtnt with hiB right hand clasping the Bible, bowed his head in aesont. A silence almost pain'.ul marked this pro ceeding and when it wa9 ended there was another tremendous t uret of applause. The Bible on which the oath was adminis tered was a black flexible morocco bound volume about 108 inches in size. It is tbe latest New York and Oxford edition printed on thin paper with gold edge and designed for the use of teachers with supplementary notes and maps. In accordance with hi3 custom, Mr. Mc Kenny, clerk of the supreme court, will pre sent this book to Mrs. Harrison as a pre oious memento of the occasion. The cheering which followed having sub sided the president began reading bis in augural address. He kept his silS hat on during the delivery of his inaugural, and was partly protected from the rain by Ser ge mt-at-arms Canaday. Mr. Cleveland, now an ex-president, stood up during part of the address, but becoming tired towards tbe close seated himself. The president spoke in a loud, clear tone with a distinct enunciation and emphasized with much earnestness in portions of his speech. Shortly after General Harrison had began speaking his family, consisting of Mrs. Harrison, Mr. and Mis. Russell B. Harri son, and Mr. and Mrs. J. R. McKee, came forward and were shown to places in tne presidential inclosure. Vice Piesident and Mrs. Morton were also present dnring a part of the ceremony, but the latter fainted in the throng and was removed to the vic president's room m the eenate, where she was quickly revived and taken home. At the close of the address there was an other outburst of applause, during which the -esident turned around and kissed his wife and daughters. The cro rd which had all the time surged back and forth like the waves of the sea, gradually dissolved. A line was formed and the president retraoad his steos to the vice cresideat's room of the senate, escorted by Seca'or Hoar, and Sen ator uocareu escorieu tne reining presmeut to the president's room. Ex-President Cleveland remained iu the president's room about five minutes with Major Prudeu, one of his secretaries, and then he joined Mr. Harrison in the vice president's room. The entire party again formed in procession and departed by the east door of the senate through which they come. Mr. Harrison, leaning on the arm of Senator Hoar, how ever, took the lead, instead of Eecond place, which he occupied when they arrived at the capital. Next came ex-Prerident Cleveland, attended by Senator Cockrell, followed by. Senator Culiom. Private Secretary Hal ford, attended by General George B. Wil liams, brought up the rear.

The court of the new pension building is undoubtedly the largest and grandest inter ior of its kind on this continent, and it his few superiors in the worlX The area of tbe tesaelated tile floor is about 37,0C0 square f eet or very nairlv n tl t raltavia which extend araund four aides of the court are supported by 150 gold bronze pillars of the Ionio and Do ia ordar. and am vmaImmI by four broad staircases of east ascent opening upon tno main floors of the court and upon the first and second galleries are the offices and workrocma of the thirteen hundred clerks now employed in the pen sion bureau. xFhe larger part of the pagoda ia a picture-true grotto of rooks, ferns and flowers. Oa its second floor are stationed 100 perform ers, comprising Beck's orchestra, of Phila delphia, which plays dance music. Above them, on the third floor, the famous Marine band discourses musio for tho promenade. The whole structure is gay with streamers acd festoons of buntings, c'ags, rilk draper ies, flowers and colored lights. Tall, grace ful palms and flowering plants acd masses ot smilax adorn the floors and roofs. This antique music stand is indeed a thing of be tut?. Directly over the first gallery in the glit tering colored gas jets is traced the word "constitution," and higher still shines a single five pointed star, its crystial sstting reUect.nz rays from its hundred points of light, 'lhef-ces of the three galleries are almost completely covered b f rich draperies. On the front of the three gal'eries and just aoove capitals of pillars are hung broad (shields, upon which artistically painted i rich colors, are coats of arms of all tbe" states of the union. Hu?e caived spread eaglet laid in gold, surmount the shields back of which are clustered and draped eix silk American flags four feet long, the whole trophy trimmed with gar'ands of smilax end roses, which combine to produce a charm ing effect. Bread leafed palms ten and fiftsen feet in height, orange trees, rare tropical plants in bloom, bushes of uperbljeantifnl roses La France, Marechal Neil, Jaequemsnot, American beauty and all the other varieties now in season, hyacinths, lilies of the valley white and purple violets, tulips and carna tions, all their soft colore harmoniously blended, present a scene of beauty upon which the eye rests gratefully. Other striking beautiful features of the interior scene ore eight large panels upon which are represented in floral pictares the executive depaitment of the sovemment. Ihey are eight by t.n feet in dimension,and are suspended at even distances from the front of the lower gallery. From the topmost peak of each of the three sections of the roof of the building, a sheer hundred and fifty feet from ths floor, radiate a thouFaud streamers of red, white and blue bunting, alternating with garlands of evergreecs and forming an immense canopy. From the center of the middle canopy de pends probably the largest and most com plete piece of floral decoration ever seen. It is a full rigged three mast ship representing the ship ot state. It is thirty feet long and a perfect model in ev.'ry detail. Tens of thousands of ch ice flowers were used in its construction. It is a marvel of graoeful beauty. From the center of eacra of the; canopies overspreading ihe end sections of' the court depends a floral ball, fifteen feet in diameter, a mass ot brilliant color. Twelve immense chandeliers .of white and' colored incandescent light, twenty great arc lights and as many powerful lambre kin gas lanterns, and lrom tke highest gal lery a score of oalcium lights with their, ever shifting colorings combine to flood the great hall with a glorifying radimce. Taken as a whole or in detail the decorations arc undoubtedly the richest and most elaborate ever produced on this continont. The ball room was crowded when at 10 o'clock word came thit the presidential party woald scon arrive. A few minutes later President Harrison and party reached the building, escortei by Colonel Britton.j were met at the entrance by a reception) committee, headed by General J. K. Mc-i Cammon. An open passage was formed by the members of the committee and through, this la e the party proceeded to the stair wav reserved for them. Trie ex-president took the arm of General McCammon and General Harrison was escorted by Colonel Britton. The others followed. About 10:30 Pres-dens Harrison was joined by the ladies of his family and the re ception committee forming in a line three and four abreast in the front and rear of the party a procession was made up for a tour' 01 tne bill room. At the request of Mr. Harrison, that no po'ice should surround him, the pleasurable task of protecting him. from the crowd was devolved on the com mitteemen. From the stairway leadinz to the floor the bill Toom presented the spectacle of a vast sea of faces apparently occupying every, inch of space. President Harrison expressed his doubt of the posaibi ity of opening a' -passge way but said he was willing to make t e attempt. After much exertion an open ing waa effected in the crowd and the pro cession began its tour around the hall, Colonel Cody (Buffalo Bill) and Captain Brackett in Bdvanoe,tbeir herculean bould ers doing good service in making a pathway and followed by about a dozen committee men proceeding the guests.
