Washington, June li. Forecast until 8 a. m. Sunday: -For Kansas generally fair, preceeds-d by showers today in east ern portion, probably slightly warmer Sunday afternoon in western portion; southerly winds becoming variable. If Furbeck had been a Democrat hia name would probably have been spelled Farback. A cheat part of the unemployed may soon fiad work building new jails to hold Coxeyites. BitECKrNRiDiiK got so bad the rail roads couldn't stand him, but ho is still in the church. Chinch burrs can't be said to have very artistocratic tastes when they prefer wheat to corn. It remains to be seen whether Speaker Crisp can see a quorum when the Re publicans begin to filibuster for Funston. If the Populist indorsement of woman suffrage- won't hurt it, as some believe, the cause is unquestionably immortal. Levi P. Mohton is iu the 'laying she would ne'er c nsent, consented" mood in regard to the governorship of New York. The announcement that congress will adjourn when tie tariif is disposed of may be meant to be reassuring, but it isn't. Senator I'effek of all men should bo in f-.ivor of keeping up the duty on foreign hair and wool until he gets hia crop marketed. A man has just been hanged by a mob in Louisiana for setting fire to two va cant houses. The noteworthy feature ia that he waa white. The fact that Nellie Grant Sartoris Qas to give up an income of $35,000 to narry makes it almost as romantic as if he were not a widow. The people who eat on the platform with Governor Altgeld at Evanston can now only make themselves clean by dip ping in the Chicago river seven times. The railway employes of Kansas are beginning to form Republican clubs. The Populist ten-striker in nominating .Mr. Furbeck may yet fall a few short The people of Neodesha will celebrate the Fourth of July opening a gas well. The Democrats will celebrate a day earlier at Topeka in much the same man ner. It la said there is no hope for silver this congress. No one was foolish en ough to think so the people don't ex pect anything from this congress and ad ministration. Mr. Holm an of Indiana has been bit terly attacked in the house. A man who has the title of "watch dog of the treas ury" could uot expect to be popular in congress. Ai army of seventy commonwealers walked Into Denver yesterday and as they were barefooted the police thought they could not do a more philanthropic thing than sock them into jaiL The only difficulty with the scheme to have a reading book for public schools made up of passages from scripture which shall meet the approval of all churches, is to find such passages. Can it be considered at all significant that M rs. Lease has not yet decided just how enthusiastic she will be in her sup port of the Populist state ticket? Surely Mrs. Lease is not waiting to be corrupted. A dispatch says that the Winnebago Indians have begun a rain dance and feel sure rain will come if they keep it up long enough. It probably will it seldom goes a whole year without rain ing. Lawrence World: EJ T. Barker of the L Cygne Journal, has won permanent fame. He was taken with a cramp colio at Topeka last winter and the hotel clerk gave him a patent nostrum. The fact has been repeatedly mentioned in hundreds of papers and to make It more impressive the announcement ia kept standing'. FEW LAWS PASSED. This Congress Hu Blockaded Nearly All Legislation, Public mnd Private. Washington, D. C, June 16. The limited number of bills introdaced and laws enacted by the present congresses is almost without precedent. Up to to day but eighty-five public measures have been enacted into law and the private laws are limited to the unprecedented number of eighteen. ' The whole number of bills Introduced in the house up to date is 7,453 which is far below the average. Of these, 1,086 have been reported which is also far be low the usual number at this date. The falling off of bills, reports, etc., has been so great that it has been one of the main causes for recent whole sale reduction of force in the government printing office. It is said that tiie former public print er. Mr. Palmer, had established his force with the expectation that the amount of work to be done by this con crress would keep pace with that of former congresses, and that this in part accounts for the large surplus of help Public Printer Benedict found when he assumed charge. The large falling oft in general legis lation is attributed to the centering of interest in the tariff and to the depleted condition of the treasury. Senators aDd members have known that it was useless to pre9 bills for public buildings and other appropriations in view of the stringency at the treasury, and they have refrained from introduc ing or urging private measures. At present there are 425 private bills on the house calendar waiting a hearing, which is ' in marked contrast with the eighteen private measures which have become laws. Owing to delays and ob jections of various kinds only two pri vate pension bills h;ive got through the house and become laws. The house calendar up to date is clear of all appropriations bills, except the deficiency an i the Indian, the latter be ing about to pass. There were, however, 130 important general bills awaiting ap pearing and eighty-five bills of a general character not carrying an appropriation. Of the more important measures lan guishing on the house calendar are those to admit New Mexico and Oklahoma to statehood, to send a congressional com mission to examine the Nicaragua canal route, to finally adjudicate swamp land grants, to permit pensions to non-residents, to establish consular inspection of immigants, to investigate the effect of machinery on labor, to in vestigate the wages of women and children, to construct canals from Lake Superior to the Mississippi river and from Lake Erie to the Ohio river to prohibit dealings in options, to promote the efficiency of the naval mili tia, to establish a uniform bankruptcy system and to aid the southern cotton ex position. Quite a number of these bills will get a hearing, but the number interrupted by adjournment will be exceptionally large. WHAT DOES IT MEAN ? The Taking Down of McKlnlcy's X.in. from the Masthead. Columbus, O., June 16. Both wings of the Republican party in this city are greatly worked up over the action of the State Journal in pulling down the flag of William McKinley from its masthead. "For President in 1896. William McKinley of Ohio," no longer appears in bold-face caps at the head of its edi torial column, where it has shone like a political beacon ever since the morning following the election of 1893. For some mysterious reason the star of Napoleon, suddenly passed into an eclipse. Whether it has been occulted by Reed or Harrison is as yet uncertain. The putting out of its light immediately followed the elevation of Charles Foster to the chairmanship of the Republican etate convention, at which time a mys terious conference was held between a score of leading newspaper men, who have since been prodding the McKinley presidential boom with Parthian arrows of sarcasm and thinly veiled ridicule. A bitter and scathing review of the governor's state administration has ap peared in the Akron Beacon, and similar sentiments are breaking out in the Re publican press in all parts of the state and where least expected. BERNIIARDT'S NEW PLAY. It Nam Is "Izeyl" and It Is Not Con sidered Nice." London, June 16. Sarah Bernhardt will commence her season with "Izeyl," the four act "sacred drama" in versa by Mme. Armand, Sylvestre and Moran, which has had uninterrupted run of eight performances at the Theatre de La Renaissance in Paris. The play passes in India at the time of the coming of Buddha, with his new hu manitarian go3peL "Izeyl" Is a courte san, who tries in vain to win the new prophet to her affection. The plot is one which brings out every phase of Beru hardt's talent,and from the actress' point of view ia certainly the strongest in which she has yet appeared. A. Grxnd Fratnre Of Hood's Sarsapariila is that while it purifies the blood and sends it coursing through the veins full of richness and health, it also imparts new life and vigor to every function of the body. Hence the expression so often heard: "Hood's Sarsaparilla made a new person of me." It overcomes that tired feeling so com mon now. Hood's Pills are purely vegetable, per fectly harmless, always reliable and beneficial. Notice. Apollo lodge No. 183 A. O. U.

UITTLE PECULIARITIES OFTEN REC OGNIZED IN CONGRESS. things Rather Pointed sum! of a Friendly Critical Nature They Prove Tnat 6reat Men Are m Bit Odd, 1Sk. the Best of Us. , The Strong Partisans. Special Correspondence. Washington, June 14. Personalities go, even among the dignified gentlemen who comprise our national congress. In the senate particularly, as soon be comes evident to a habitue of the gal leries, each honorable gentleman has his own private opinion of some of hi3 colleagues, which only the most power ful sense of senatorial courtesy restrains him from- uttering, and not always then. It is snrprising, too, how differ ent is the appearance of a body of men when looked down on froirf above and when seen on the same level by one of themselves. The frequent visitor to the gallery soon notes many little tricks of manner in every senator, many little peculiarites which are recognized at sight, but cannot be described. There ia a defect in our language in that par ticular; there is a certain impression which every man of marked, character istics makes " upon us, for which we have no words. We notice the peculiar turn of Mr. Hoar'3 head when a Demo crat rises to speak on the tariff, the somewhat self conscious manner of Mr. , Mauderson, the way Air. Crice vaiks down to his seat, and. the quite indivi dual way in which Mr. Harris rises and sifs down, but there is no language to convey our impression to the distant reader. Many things, however, of a rather pointed in fact, critical nature are commonly said about the capital, and among them these: ' Noted and Quoted. That certain senators show an ex treme sensitiveness about their personal history. One, for instance, begins his biography with his admission to the bar SENATOR BLAVCHARD. and never alludes to his previous life even in private conversation, not because it is not highly honorable, but simply that he desires to be known to the pub lic only as a jurist and statesman. That Mr. Martin, although he went to Kansas in 1855 and was an official of the first or so called "border ruffian" legislature, never lost caste by reason of it, has been popular from the start with the other side, counts some of his warmest friends among them, and as a candidate has always run ahead of his ticket. Kausaa men tell us that he is the only one of "that set" of whom this can be said. That Mr. Blanchard took one stand In the house to represent his district and quite another in the senate to represent his state and is proud of being able to do it consistently. That in the home city of Senator Voorhees all distinctions in politics, re ligion and social standing instantly dis appear when any Terre Haute institu tion is threatened, and, most of all, the big distillery. "If," says an Indiana man, "the Fairbanks party says, 'Ex tend the bonded period for whisky,' it must be done, though the Democratic parry be busted." That Mr. Lodge has had to contra dict as senator several things that he wrote as an author. That Mr. Vest has never been out of politics of some active kind since 1853 and was never once pulled down. That Mr. Manderson is as suave, hums as softly and is as smooth running as a buzzsaw and quite as safe to fool with. That Mr. McPherson is the most care less business man in congress, allowing orders for $30,000 worth of sugar stock to lie around his house like receipted grocery bills. That Mr. Roach of North Dakota is the quietest man in either house, and no body knows the reason, though it Is charitably ascribed tp his natural mod esty. That Mr. Harris is peculiarly sensi tive about his age and will not let it be known, but it is certain that he is 75 years old, for he had to state his age when he was admitted to the bar in 1841. It is asseitod by some that ho has never stated it since, but that is probably an exaggeration. That Mr. Bate is also sensitive on that subject and never carries his rem iniscences back of the time when he was a private soldier in the Mexican war. In the Heat of Debate. These are little things, but they con sole us as proof that great men have their little oddities of character as well as the rest of us. Of course all senators speak good English, but in the heat of debate one occasionally gets tangled in a sentence, which would look very funny in The Record. During the tariff debate, when any particular schedule is reached and the Democrat chiefly re sponsible for it cornea forward in de fense, the whole Republican side usual ly joins in having fun -with him, but none has been so hardly beset as the Louisiana senators. It was known a week in advance that the first decisive test votes would come on the sugar ' schedule, and so the galleries were fulL and the tormentors on the Republican side put in moet of their time for three days in having fun with Messrs. Caff ery and Blanchard. The latter seemed to have lost much of that ready self pos session he showed in the house, and in his principal speech he mired in the second paragraph - and got his persons and tenses very oddly mixed Indeed. After he had held it three days for re vision it went into The Record thus: "The senator from Rhode Island, Mr. Aldrich, is, I believe, considered on the other side of the chamber and con sidered on this side of the chamber as perhaps a better posted man as to tariff matters than any other senator on that Bide of the chamber, and considering his reputation in that regard I was sur prised at some of the statements of fact which that senator made in his speech on the floor of the senate today. I do not mean the speech with which he last entertained the senate, but the one pre ceding the remarks submitted by my colleague who last addressed the senate on this side of the chamber. ' Somewhat Mixed. Art emus Ward relates that when at tending a war meeting where the speak er got mixed he (Arteruus) rose and ventured to "trust that the gentlemen will not forget to say something about the 'busy haunts of men. Mr. Blanch ard was evidently determined to be specific about the sides of the chamber. 'A little later he got mixed on the year when Louisiana seceded and the date on which the sugar crop for the preced ing year should be calculated, but as Messrs. Hoar and Aldrich were both on him at once he must be excused, partic ularly as he got it straight In The Rec ord. The fact that the sugar crop was calculated for the fiscal year and conse quently not affected for 1861 by seces sion was one which the New England senators seemingly did not know, and although Mr. Blanchard knew it they got him in such a tormented state that he could not tell it Even Senator Sher man got mixed on the income tax at least, it seemed so to the galleries when he was aiming to show that it was all right for the states. His posi tion as well as that of Senator Hill is thus summed up by a sarcastio Demo crat: "The income tax is class legisla tion, un-Democratic, un-American, un just, socialistic and inquisitorial, revo lutionary and diabolical; therefore it should bo imposed by the states instead of the general government. ' ' As the girl said in camp meeting, "My jew elry was dragging me down to helL so I gave it to my sister." The most attractive speaker on the Democratic side, me judice, is Mr. Vest. He certainly has no superior in a run ning debate, and the way he holds his own when it is evident that he is in the wrong excited my special admiration. His colleague, Mr. CockrelL is rather more forcible than graceful Mr. Brice is looked upon by the galleries as one of the peculiar men of the senate. He always comes in spick and span, with hair beautifully curled and a red rose in his buttonhole, his general getup re minding one in' a vague way of an ad vertising agent rather than a senator. Of Mr. Allen, who is now "denounced" as a Democrat, it has been said that he ripens like a big russet apple (he some what resembles one in features) that is, getting better the longer he stays with us. He has a clear voice, not unmusic al, and certainly has improved in de livery since entering the senate. Mr. Hale also has a very clear and penetrat ing voice, and with it gentility in ap pearance and dignity of manner. Ho speaks aggressively and drives every point home. Mr. Frye is another ag gressive speaker, somewhat more war like than his colleague, while Mr. Man derson has equal force and much suav ity. Mr. Cullom has had little to say in this long debate; but is a very influ ential senator, and the same may be said of several others who are rarely heard from. In the House. In the house there was comparatively little talent shown in debate after the tariff bill passed until the discussion began on the repeal of the state bank tax, and tha brought out many able members and was conducted on both sides with very great ability and dig nity. The defeat of the state bank party was even more overwhelming than had been anticipated, and in a full house the adverse majority would certainly have reached 90, as a great many absented themselves to avoid voting. The decision is admitted to be final, but has left many hard feelings. The old heads told us early in the session that many who consented to the declaration in the Dem ocratic platform would stave off the vote if they could, but if cornered would vote against the repeal, and so it turned out. The present condition of the house is so peculiar, what with strikes and riots in all the mining regions and members in a perfect fever over the po litical results, that there is a great deal of irritation, and some of the most genial gentlemen on the floor are far from pleasant in conversation. There is a painful interest in all the inquiries be ing made on labor questions, and Messrs. McGann, Ryan and Pence are some what in demand for information. A Special Committee. That the senate takes a very serious view of it is seen by the fact that it voted for a special committee without regard to politics and with scaely a hint at differences of opinion. From the known character of the members of this committee an experienced Washington journalist might write both reports in advance, for of course there will be two and possibly three. The chairman, Mr. Vilas, as everybody knows, ia an advanced Democrat of the Cleveland type, familiarly spoken of in Washing ton as an unflinching 'cuckoo, ' ' and a goldbug of the yellowest stripe. He will, says a fellow senator, "join the ether two Democrats in charging that all the misery is due to Republican misgovernxnent, and that not even a lit tle bit of it is due to the scarcity of money or the demonetization of silver."
