(From our regular correspondent.) Washington, D. C, March 17, 1906. Gentle and conservative people may think that the address of Senator Tillman on the Rate bill in the sen ate this week was characteristically fierce and somewhat overdrawn. But it lias set a great many astute politi cians thinking and talking and Is likely to do much for the cause of ef fective legislation. It certainly rang ed the senator on the side of the president and shows what he him self claims, that the Rate bill is not and cannot be made a party measure, that it is a vital piece of legislation and that if this congress does not en act wise and conservative legislation, the voters will see to it that another set of men are put in who will per haps be less wise and certainly far more radical in the measures they will take to control the roads Senator Tillman spoke of his utter ances as his own personal views. But it may be said that they are the views of a great many of botU parties at the capitol, some of them men who would do anything in their power to thwart rate legislation, but who when it comes to the pinch may feel that it is wise to agree that rate control is no party measure and that the time has come when the common people of the country are demanding a minimum of their . rights and it may be well to grant them, lest those same common people take , measures tq - secure a maximum of their'rights by sending another set of men to congress to legislate for them. The announcement that Judge Taft has, for the present at least de clined the proffered place for him on the supreme bench is not altogethei a surprise. The secretary of war knows that not only is there an immense amount of work that needs doing, both in Panama and the Philippines, but that lie has beea subjected to much harsh, and he consiaers unjust criticism for the way he has handled things in those two corners of the world. Therefore, while a seat on the supreme bench is a thing few men would lightly decline he has de cided to stay at the head of the yar department for some months at any rate. There is really no serious- need lor him to make a decision before next October when the 'supreme court reconvenes after the summer recess. Meantime the mere fact that he has not definitely declined the place will be enough to save the president a great" deal of embarrasment from place seeking , politicians, scores of whom have candidates in reserve for the vacant judge-ship should there seem to be the least chance of their landing it. . There is war and rumors of war in the statehood situation. A confer ence of the house which might as well have been a caucus, has been call ed, and by a large vote it was decided to stand-pat on the refusal to concur in anything the senate had don&to the House Statehood bill. The speak-, er led the fight. But for him. it is PI M )C 8- A O L 11 L lAil JONES. i said that many of his followers would have been willing to. agree to the seriate proposals and to 'have ad mitted Oklahoma and Indian Terri tory as one state and either have lef Arizona and New Mexico out of the question or have submitted the ques tion in those territories to a referen dum vote. But the speaker said, for publication at any rate, that he would rather have the senate kill the state hood bill altogether than to recede from the position the house, had tak en. How long this valorous opposition will be maintained is a question. The speaker knows how to tight. And he knows alst how to yield when it is ob vious that resistance is no longer a virtue. So it is whispered that when it comes to a show down, the house will be willing to send the statehood bill to conference knowing in its heart that it will liaye to agree to ad mitting Oklahoma and New Mexico and nothing else. There is consider able opposition in Oklahoma to being ntTllL. above picture of the man and fish is the trade J mark of Scott's Emulsion, ana is the synonvm for strength and purity. It is sold in almost all the civilized coun tries of the globe. If the cod fish became extinct it would be a world-wide calam ity, because the oil that comes from its liver surpasses all other fats in nourishing and life-giving properties. Thirty years ago the proprietors of Scott's Emul sion found a way of preparing cod liver oil so that everyone can take it and get the full value of the oil without the objectionable taste. Scott's Emulsion is the best thing in the world for weak, backward children, thin, delicate people, and .all conditions of wasting and lost strength. Send for tree sample.

One of the special commissioners sent by the Department of Commerce and Labor to investigate trade con ditions abroad has returned to Wash ington after several months of ab sence. He is Raymond F. Crist to whom was assigned the investigation of Japan and North China. It cannot be said that any of the views Mr. Crist has expressed since his return have been startlingly new. They are in many respects the same that have been voiced by lone and helpless con suls for years and years and which had about as much affect on American manufactures as throw ing-water on a drowned rat. Mr. Crist says that the reason American trade abroad is not in the same condition as the export trade of countries like Germany and Great Britain is because our manu factures will not go after it. There is, he says, in the northern part of the Orient as fine a field for Ameri can trade as could be desired, but our manufactures are either ignoring it or pecking at it in a half hearted, un intelligent way. The lack of business, Mr. Crist says, is more the fault of our exporteis than of our consuls The American manufacturer needs waking up to grasp the foreign trade opportunity before it is entirely ab sorbed by France, Germany and Eiig land.

These horses are at the stone barn ih Ellis. Eddie Bairds team took advantage of a broken line last Saturday even ing 3 miles north of Ellis. They ran to town, crossed the Suspension bridge, barely looking in at the Blue Front as they threw mud in L. H. Morton's and auctioneer's face. At A. J. Crumbs corner they turned west, overturned the Robinson buggy No 70, which turned back as they straightened west to Hicky's corner then north where they run over the running gears of a cart, then over the sidewalk, a second-hand horse power and were captured by Morton, Griffith, Switzer and Eppler, and not a speck of damage done except Eddie walked 3 miles. Eddie Baird, Fred King and Frank Veatch are offering a reward for any team that can smash a Robin son buggy (like those bought at the Blue Front) in a runaway.
