The Olathe convention having beaten ell previous records concluded its labors were finished. Governor Leweli.ixo and Ca3sarmay be alike in coquetting with the crown, but Ciesar, lucky man, never had hia Os born. The placing of barbel wire on the free list would indicate that even the sena tors were beginning to look after their fences. Few people realized how interminably long this session of congress has been, until they read that the senate waa still discussing Liliuokalani. Army worms have begun to move in Bouthern Missouri. They haven't be come bold enough yet however to seize trains or demand transportation. The bar-room fight in which "Old Ilutch" and Millionaire Ctum were engaged, explains why board of trade operators are called bulls and bears. Archbishop Xodri who is going to sue the United States for $3,000,000 had better get in his claim pretty soon or there won't be anything iit by the Dem ocrats. Senator Gorman sail the senate had followed out the course of tariff reform outlined by Mr. Cleveland. Their motto seems to have been "A public office ia a sugar trust." Iu Dr. McCasey is so afraid people will not know what au honorable, upright and pure man he is, he should have a placard printed sotting forth hia noble qualities and wear it in his hat Wichita Eagle: It is openly declared that Bill Hackney's idea of testing those armor plates is to engage England In a naval war and thus save the expense of a congressional investigation. It ia astonishing that Governor Lewel ling didn't begin to shrink from the re sponsibilities of the great office of gov ernor until after a majority of the dele gates had been elected for him. Really governor this ia so sudden. President Cleveland ia reported to have invested in a Col oca do gold mine. It may be understood now what he meant when he said that industries had revived since the repeal of the Sherman clause he referred to some of them. The senate bribery investigation com mittee exonerates Senators Hunton and Kyle from blame, but confirms their statements that bribes were offered. The senators involved in the sugar spec ulations will hardly get off so easily. A very strong, an overwhelming sense of duty takes possession of Gover nor Lewelllng when It comes to accept ing the nomination for governor, but the investigation of frauds and abuses by Populist officials escaped his notice en tirely. The women of Lexington have refused to decorate the Confederate soldiers' graves unless the Veterans' association expela Breckinridge. If this thing goes much further the women will refuse to breathe unless Breckinridge ia smoth ered. Bells were rung and the "minute" men swarmed out by thousands at Leav enworth to repel the advancing miners, when it was found that the latter were ail In charge of the sheriff. Leaven worth people were so disappointed, too, for if they could have done something real brave Lawrence would never have dared to speak of Quantrell'a raid again. JMl,aa'M""SMsasalsjs MIt. QUINTON DENIES. A. B. Quinton denies that he had any thing to do with putting "Bill Biggins" on the list of alternates to the state con vention and tells this paper that he thought the Wm. Iligglna named waa a store-keeper at Valencia and further more that the original name aa presented to the committee waa Wm. IL Higgins. The Journal accordingly took pains to huat up the original draft, found it and furthermore waa surprised to see that the whole list from top to bottom was in Mr. Quinton'a own handwriting. The name in question, written by Mr. Quin ton, appeared simply Wm. Higgins. No such man is known in Dover township. Mf. Quinton admitted that it was cus tomary to put Topeka people on the list to fill put vacancies in country delegations. The chairman of the nominating com mittee sayB that Mr. Quinton is responsi ble for the appearance of Higgins' name and furthermore that he remarked in substance as he entered the convention room: "We have had a row but I have got things my way." TUB SHOP HEN. The Santa Fe Railroad company has been compelled, in order to reduce ex penses, to lay off about two hun dred of its employes at the To peka shops, and rumor has it that an other large number will soon be added to those already out. Those remaining at work are earning barely sufficient to enable them to live, while some are not receiving enough, wages to buy the kind and quality of food their work requires. The laboring men of this vicinity are not entirely satisfied that the spirit of economy which dictated the discharge of these shop men is general, and does not reign among the higher grades of employ es and officials. There i3a strong impres sion that ' the officials who ordered this . great reduction are not re linquishing any portion of their fat salaries in order to assist in lifting the road out of the financial slough into which it has fallen. With much reason the working classes now believe the re ceivership, as it exists, is but an expen sive ornament, to meet the cost of which they are deprived of employment. The men were assured that while the receivership meant no interest payments to bondholders, it did mean a putting of the road into splendid physical condi tion and plenty of work for the shop men. Ia It not time for the United States courts which control the road to in vestigate, equalize the retrenchments and do justice to the workmen? There is no law which requires rail roads or other corporations to retain men in their employ when there is no work for them to do, but there is an equity which demands that no man shall be de prived of his bread and butter on the score of economy while employes of h igher grade are allowed to hold sine cures at princely salaries. The State Jocrnal suggests that a committee be sent to present the matter to Judge Caldwell and ask for consist ency and justice. PUT IN PROHIBITION. If the Republican party is to march to victory in the coming campaign, it must, go into the fight prepared for battle. The party managers who make up the plat form upon which the party is to stand or fall in this campaign, will do well to carefully consider what the Methodist preachers said in their district confer ence at Perry about prohibition. They said: "We shall consider ourselves ab solved from allegiance to any political party that is indifferent to this supreme issue." The party fixers should not think for one minute that the people are asleep. They should not think the people will allow them- to ride to victory ignoring an issue so dear to the common people. The Republican party has always received the. almost unanimous support of the Methodist church, through the influence of the ministers of that powerful denom ination and they cannot at this time be put off with promises that "the law will be enforced but we will say nothing about it." No, the church people are in . no mood to be parleyed with this time. It is true that an organization known as the German American League is fighting prohibition and declares that its member ship ,.will vote only with that party which stands against prohibi tion and woman suffrage. Let the party managers carefully consider what they are about to do. Can they afford to throw the support of the churches and the ministers overboard for that of the anti-prohibition element? The anti-pro-hibitionista have always voted independ ently, when the liquor question was an issue and they have made it an issue in every campaign since the prohibitory law went into effect. What the preach ers now propose doing, is simply what the liquor men have been doing right along; stand for the issue independent of party lines. If the Republican party wants to keep this powerful factor with in the party, a prohibition plank must go in the platform and it must be clear and sound to the core. NO TIME TO DODGE. This ia no time for the Republican party to duck its head and dodge. It is a time to stand up, face the music and meet the issues of the day. It should favor remonetization of sil ver, squarely. The Democrats are gold bugs; the Populists favor flat money. It should demand enforcement of pro hibition. The Democrats oppose this. The Populists are today responsible for the non-enforcement of prohibition, in augurated by Republicans. If this is sue has a party friend able to do it good, that party is the Republican party. It should favor woman suffrage, be cause It is right and bound to win. Why not earn the gratitude of the women, who will be the big new political factors. It should favor restriction of immigra tion.' Protect American workingmen as well as capitalists. Let ua look after our own unemployed first and make other nations look after theirs. It should favor progress aa it has in ita paat successes. Meet the living issues; and no one can deny that these are the living issues. THE IU LONG SERVICE MEN IN CONGRESS WHO HAVE EARN ED A REST They Axe Fin Looking- Old Gentlemen and ICnjoy Good Health Some May Say They Shoal d Step Oat and G1V Way to New Blood. Special Correspondence. Washington, May 24. In this con gress are 13 men 70 years of age and over, as many more lacking but a few weeks or months of it and twice as many who are well up in the sixties. In truth, when one considers the ad vanced age of senators and the total of 441 congressmen (if .the senate were full there would be 444), to say nothing of the wearing toil, the hurly burly, the strain and anxiety of a political career, the wonder is not that there are many deaths, but that there are so few.' Take the life insurance tables for men rang ing from 85 to 70, as nearly all the con gressmen do, and then the mortuary list of all the 53 congresses, and you will ar rive at this extraordinary fact---that there have never once been as many deaths in a congress as among the same number of men outside, and very often the deaths of congressmen have been less than half of the general average. One need but to look down from the gal lery upon either house to see the reasons for this vitality. An expert who was looking over the house with me a few days ago gave it aa his estimate that the average weight of the members is at least 20 pounds greater that the outside aver age and their chest measurement from 10 to 20 per cent greater. In short, speaking from an insurance standpoint, congressmen are the best risks in the world. Talent and Health. Many years ago, while on a journal istic tour among the penitentiaries and workhouses of some western states, I was struck by the fact that among con victs and jailbirds the percentage of scrofula was three or four times greatei than it is or is supposed to be iu the general population. The surgeon physi- WATCHDOG HOLMAS. cian then (1877) in charge at the (Colum bus (O. ) penitentiary assured me that while the difference is really great it is not so great as it seems, for a criminal career develops the natural tendency, and men in prison apply for relief and thus make their condition known, while free citizens would not. Nevertheless there is a well recognized connection between or ganic or hereditary disease and the tend ency to crime. The connection between perfect physical health and command ing talents is apparent to everybody, and I think it a safe statement that in this congress there is not one-fifth the ratio of organic disease that there is in tho general population. And what fine looking old gentlemen some of them are ! Senator Voorhees, for instance, has lived in an almost inces sant storm for 44 years, has been abused nioro venomously perhaps than any oth er living American, has spoken four or five hours at a time on scores of occa sions and borne social, and one might almost, say convivial, burdens in addi tion, and yet a week's rest makes him look almost as fresh and rosy as when he made his first lawyer's plea in the old courthouse in Covington, Ind. The veteran of both houses, of course is Senator Morrill, who has just passed into his eighfy-fifth year and the for tieth year of continuous service in con gress. At the end of his present term he will have served 12 years in the house and 30 in the senate, having only two rivals in our history in the latter respect. Thomas Hart Benton served continuously in the senate 30 years, then two years in the house and only failed of becoming governor of Missouri after that by a party division. His po litical life began in the great storm over tho establishment of the Missouri com promise and ended in the greater storm which followed its repeal. Longest n Record. Both these yield inne respect, how ever, to the once famous and honored Nathaniel Macon of North Carolina, whose political career covered 57 years. Add his six years in the army of the Revolution, and he must be credited with 68 years in the public service. He enlisted at 20, was elected to the state senate at 25 and to the Second congress in 1791. Having remained there 12 full terms, he went to the senate and served till 1828, after which he was a member of the constitutional convention of North Carolina. Out of these 8 years, however, should be deducted a short period when he was in no legislative body, though active with tongue and pen. His only equal in length of service was John Quincy Adams, who became private secretary to the minister to France in 1784, and deducting brief periods of retirement served the publio a little over 51 years. After holding al most every office from state legislator to president he entered the house and served 1 7 years, fell at his post and died in the capitoL Senator Morrill might at present be called merely a senator emeritus, as be says but little in the senate, is spared the hardest committee labor and shows much of the weakness of advanced age. Senators Morgan, Pugh, Palmer, Har ris, Bate and Hunton, on the other hand, are still active in the performance 'mi !;? f all senatorial duties, though of course they have learned hav? to do their work with much less wear and tear than at first. They are remarkably solid and well preserved men. General Palmer ranks next to Senator Morrill, being well into his seventy-fourth year. Judge Holman is so Often quoted as the father of the house that almost every one thinks Mm the oldest member, and it is of ten so stated in the papers. That dis tinction, however, belongs to Hon. Hezekiah S. Bundy of the Tenth Ohio, but he is such a quiet member that he is often quite overlooked. He says that the rules and methods of procedure in the house are so very different from what they were when he was here many years ago that he does not feel inclined to master the routine again, especially aa he is not a candidate for re-election and is only filling the unexpired term of the late William H. Enochs as the result of a sort of compliment by the voters. He will soon complete his seventy-fourth year and entered the Ohio legislature 46 years ago. tilore Veteran Statesmen. Another old member who does not say much is the man whose writings we enjoyed so much 80 or 40 year9 ago namely, the Hon. Thomas Dunn Eng lish of the Sixth New Jersey. This is his second term, and he ia as defiantly independent as a man of 75 years who cares not for a re-election can well afford to be. Considering his wound and physical sufferings with the 6torms of 1 every kind which he has passed through, General Daniel Edgar Sickles is still a well preserved man. As General Palm er's biography is the longest in the sen ate list, so that of General Sickles is one of the longest in the house list, and yet both are compact and modest in tone, their length being due to the mere enu merations of the positions filled by each. General Sickles has held 19 different commissions in legislative, diplomatic and military service, and General Palm er has held 14, but some of the latter 's extended over many years. Other well known veterans of the house who are past 70 or within a few weeks of it are Thomas J. Henderson, Seventh Illinois; John Henry Gear, First Iowa; Moses T. Stevens, Fifth Massachusetts; Charles S. Randall, Thirteenth Massachusetts; John Avery, Eleventh Michigan; Ga lusha A. Grow, Pennsylvania at large, and Charles E. Hooker, Seventh Missis sippi. Senator John Sherman passed into his seventy -second year a few days ago, and the soft money men and silver ites Bay that he doesn't look any mora dried up and lanky than he did in 1873. Senator James L. Pugh is in the middle of his seventy-fourth year and has been a legislator off and on just 50 yeara Elected Fifteen Times. Although Judge Holman has been a member of the house 29 years in all, elected 15 times, beginning with 1858, yet he is only 71 years old. Incidentally it may be added that he is at once the subject of severe Criticism by his oppo nents and the most ardent affection by his personal friends. There is one group of 14 men iu the Capitol whose admira tion for him amounts to a sort of wor shipful reverence. These men constitute what is called the permanent soldiers' roll of the house. One of them has lost both legs and one both arms and all the others an arm or a leg each. The judge is called the father of the roll, as he se cured the rule which made it perma nent. By a sort of accident it long ago consisted of seven Democrats and seven Republican " it has purposely been kept bo ever ic-. These men are ranked on the pay list as messengers, but serve chiefly as doorkeepers. Samuel A. Decker of Toledo is the messenger who has lost both arms and Ferdinand Page of Grand Rapids the one who has lost both legs. This group dates from the Forty-fourth congress, but was first made permanent by rule in " the Forty-eighth. The once famous speech delivered by Judge Holman in the house July 16, 1861. set forth the position of the war Democrats so clearly that it could not bo misapprehended, and it was their platform of action till the end of the war. His unflinching support of war measures while dissent ing from the administration policy in many respects, his devotion to the sol diers' interests and his personal purity of character give him that surprising hold he has upon the people of his dis trict in spite of those peculiarities which are material for the wit of the para graphers. A Few Reelg-ned. There is much cause for surprise at the small number of deaths among Con gressmen, but while the deaths of sena tors have been but 1 00 the resignations have been nearly three times as many, and some of them very curious. Presi dent Garfield took three senators into his cabinet, and so did President Cleve land in his first term, but in his second took but one, Mr. Carlisle. Several sen ators have resigned to go upon the su preme bench and several more to be come governors of their states. In 1821 Senator James G. Wilson resigned to become postmaster at Trenton, and in 1800 Senator James Watson resigned to be naval agent at New York. So far as can be determined from the record, only four senators have resigned as a protest against the course of the administration. Senators Conkling and Piatt were the first to attempt the English method of resigning and appealing to their constit uents for a vindication by a re-election, and if experience guides they will be the last for a long time. John C. Cal houn reversed the process by resigning the vice presidency to become a senator and be free to fight his enemies. John Tyler left the senate because he would not obey the instructions of his state legislature, and four senators from North Carolina did the same. Among the most noted who have died in office are Senators Roger Sherman of Connect icut, Felix Grundy of Tennessee, W. F. Fessenden, Charles Sumner, Zaoh Chandler, the two Claytons of Delaware, Stephen A. Douglas, Oliver P. Morton, Henry Anthony and the lamented David C. Brod-jrick of California, who waa killed in a duel by Judge Terry. J. H. Bkadi.k. NO MOKE LAYOFFS. Prospects That the Entire Dis charges at the Shops WILL HOT EXCEED TWO HUNDRED. 31 r. Player Assures the Men That They Will Prwbobly Bm Restored Within El;ht Weeks-Other Bail road Sews. - There have been no layoffs at the Santa Fe shops since Monday and the men are in great hopes that the number now Working will not be greatly decreased, though it Is quite possible that a few more will get notice Monday evening. It is certain that there is plenty of work in the car and machine shops to last a con siderable time, and new work is coming in daily. In the paint shop, however, the situa tion remains the same and the rest of the men with the exception of five or six in the freight room will be laid off with the completion of the work now on hand on Monday evening. Mr. Player has given some of the men to understand that the present lay off will last possibly not more than two months and many of the old men will hold themselves in readiness to go buck to their old places again at that time. It seems now that the lay off will not ex tend to the 41)0 men as first expected and the number may not reach half that number. The prospect at the shops is a little brighter than it was a week ago. MAV BE NO EXCl'EsION. Shopman Do Kut Want to Pay Mora Than Fifty Cents. ' A new complication has arisen and it is just possible that there will be no Santa Fe shops excursion this year. General Manager J. J- Frey has an nounced to the managers of the shop end of the arrangements that he will take them to St. Joseph and return on special train for seventy-five cents each. The price the road has charged the employes on all former occasions of this kind was fifty cents and they say they Will not pay any more. There will be a meeting of those in terested at Trades Assembly hall at 2:30 o'clock to settle the question. A com promise rate may be agreed on but it is probable that the shopmen will hold out for a fifty cent rate and if this is not granted them the excursion will proba bly be declared oil. FREIGHT BUSIITESS SLOW. Probability That Train Crews Can Not Be Increased Soon. The freight business on the Santa Fe is not very lively at present and it has been found necessary within the last two months to reduce the number of crews on this eastern division from forty to thirtv-three. The men, too, that are working do not in many instances get in full time but are compelled to lay oil a few days in nearly every month in order to more equally divide the work. It will be lm possible, the officials sav, to increase the number of crews until the crops begin to move in the fail. It seems to be a fact that the railroads are suffering in all de partments just at this time. SHOPS AMU OFFICES. Seine News Notes of Personal and General Interest.
