fUtLET ENTERED CONGRESS US COMMONER; LEAVES AS COBFORATIUN MAN triking Change in Texas States- U'« man Who Retires Soon to Private Life ;; ; Cleans vested interests r Business Will Miss Him in U. S. Senate, Declares Gilson Gardner k® BY GILSON GARDNER |P WASHINGTON, July 20.—Senator Joseph W. Bailey must have many u II ' r f > 5 ’ 1 rtrr * oilman gar ox eh mean himself by incasing his body in a splketailed coat and mingling with aristocrats! He came from Texas, where a man was a man for a* that. His ceart Ihioboed in unison with that of the man in the checked shirt; and no so cial custom could induce him to go beyond a frock coat, a black slouch, ind a white lawn tie! He scorned the rich and denounced them fiercely on the floor of the house. Trusts were in abomination. Honest poverty was the keynote of great statesmanship ind the constitution was glorified in Its preamble and its guarantees of liberty to the individual. At that time Bailey had not pene trated the inner mysteries of the fconstPution wherein are found pro jection for property as well as for personal liberty. He had not gather ed that vast respect for our judicial system which now is the foundation of his mentality. He had not entered Into secret correspondence with Standard Oil or asked temporary loans trom the representatives of the Watera-Pierce company. He had not let up a stable of racing horses. He bad not become the open champion of l^orimer and the defender of Taft’s policies. He did not view so often iwith alarm; he did not see an Ameri can edition of the French revolution lurking behind the next turn in the [ road; he did not abound in solemn Warnings against the encroachments I fit the mob. He was not so stout, not so rich, not so sleek and well-fed as he is today. He had that same baby stare and the same ingenuous tone in opening up his argument; that same . appeal to the frankness aftd Hie fair- ; pees and the candid impartiality of hit hearers. He .was plausible and was believed and was followed by a large membership in his party and was admired by others not of his par ty. He played well his part and by a course rarely eqnaled in American public life he w-on for himself riches and ’he confidence of the great cor porations which he now goes from the senate to serve.. As remarked by Senator William Alden Smith; “Bailey will be missed.’' But it will be the big Interests who 1 will miss him. He must deal with them now from the lobby and the Wail-st. law office. "A Progressive Is one who believes in the people and that the solution of our social and industrial problems must come through greater political opportunities for the people. “A reactionary is one who serves \ the special interests negatively by op posing a larger scope and scheme of democracy and positively by support ing their legislative program.” The above definitions are by Lynn ! Haines, author of a little book Just from the press, entitled. “The Sen ate from 1907 to 1912.” The principal business of this little publication is ! to sum up what Mr. Haines calls "the Stewardship of those United States ; senators whose terms expire March S. 1913. - There are 32 such senators, as follows: Bacon. Oa.; Bailey, Texas; Bankhead, Ala.; Borah, Idaho; 1 Bourne. Oregon; Briggs, N. J.; Brown. \ Neb.; Burnham. N. H.; Crane, Mass.; Cullom. II).; Curtis. Kansas; Davis, Ark.; Dixon, Montana; Fall.

They are merrily driving nails at my house again but it is like driving nails in my coffin, because my beuuti ful plan is all butchered up to make ! room for that staircase I’d failed to 1 provideu I had to cut. out a room up- I stairs and switch things around gen erally. As the building goes along all kinds of diabolical errors leap out at me from ambush. 1 found I had closet* : where the beds would blockade them The stairs have barely enough head ■room, and a very tall man had better ! not buy this house from us unless he wants to go up lo the second floor on h;:| hands and knees. The kitchen 1> jon the wrong side of the house for ‘convenience, but it has to stay there because all the studding is up and the plumbing already roughed in. An other little thing I had not counted or | —the chimney was goiug to bo right In front of the window'. 1 found the brick mason singing at his work, not caring a rap, because he had the biuc print to guide him. That the frame work didn’t gee with the chimney made no difference to him. He had ■ bid on the chimney as planned, and jif 1 had changed w indows I should have told him I didn't want the chirn -1 STATEMENT GEARS OUT | CONTENTION OF THE TIMES Railroad Companies Arc $155,- 000 Shy on Grade Separa tion Expenditures The sum of 21.49t1.210.22 ha# been I spent by the railroad companies in separating grade crossings in Detroit ■ .from 1903 to June J, 1912, according .to a statement submitted to Corpora- j tion Counsel laiwson, by George H. 1 Webb, chief engineer of the Michigan , Central railroad, Friday. The statement show’s that the com- 1 panics spent $154,757.88 less than re paired by the terms of their agree ment with the city, Mr. Webb was asked by the council committee on grade separation to submit the state ment to clear up the doubt that, exist- i ed in the minds of the aldermen about , the amounts expended by the rail- j roads. The impression has prevailed that the rai’.ioads’ expenditures fell far | short of the $200.000 required annual-1 ly by the city's contract with the rail-! roads. The city does not keep ac count of the expenditures, as was ! pointed oflt in The Times several weeks ago, and that fact led the council committee to seek definite In 'formation. i The present agreement was not in effect until 1904. The sura of $50,- 9t’>S.lo was spent in the year 1903, un .der the terms of another contract, j Deducting that sum from the total amount expended to date shows that ;the railroads spent $1,445,242.12 un der, the tgrms of the present agree ment. or an average of $19,34 4.74 lesß jthan the required $200,000. The statement shows that the ;Michigan Central and I,ake Shore railroad* together bare spent $982,- 999.72. The Grand Trunk has spent $478,082.31 and the 'Wabash has spent 'only $35,128.19. Mr. Webb reported \that the railroads expect to Bpend $276,445 during the present year, but the average Will still be under the $200,000. Aid Ixiuis E. Tossy, of the Ninth ward, insisted on the council getting the information, stating that it would show that the Grand Trunk railroad's j expenditures were comparatively in iFigniflcent. He will use this informa tion in attempting to drive another j bargain with the Grand Trunk, where ,by the company will agree to spend imore money and separate the Dequin* ‘dre-st. grftdi - B|l.
