Prohibited, the Expense to Be Borne
by the Federal Government.
Although the senate special commit
tee which is to inquire into the rela
tion between politics and business has
hardly begun its duties, it is apparent
already that the committee will sub
mit as part of its report some recom
mendations for the enactment of a
drastic corrupt practices law.
From the character of the recent
agitation of the subject of campaign
contributions and expenditures, and
the certainty that this agitation will
grow instead ot diminish when the
committee gets down to work, there Is*
no doubt in the minds of interested
men that the outcome of the inquiry
will revolutionize campaign methods
of the past.
According to what is said in Wash
ington the trend of committee opinion
will be toward governmental restric
tion of campaign expenditures along
lines that will be regarded as extreme

of influencing elections in which rep

Sentiment of the Committee.
I But sentiment in the Clapp commit

toward providing means that will
eliminate almost entirely the present

with funds collected from private

the subject it is probable that the
committee will be confronted with the
[proposal to recommend that contribu

prohibited altogether, and the federal

STORIES OF BRET HARTE.
His Dislike of Social Duties and Mere
Mr. Moncure Conway in his autobi
ography gives an amusing reminis
cence of Bret Harte's proneness to
escape from what are known as "so-
cial duties." Mrs. Conway "received"
on Monday afternoons, and Bret Harte
had told her that he would be present
on a aprticular Monday, but he failed
to appear, much to the regret of some
persons who had been invited for the
occasion. "When, chancing to meet
him," writes Mrs. Conway, "I alluded
to the disappointment. He asked for
giveness and said. 'I will come next
Monday, even though I promise.*"
He had a constant dread that his
friendship or acquaintance would be
sought on account of his writings
rather than for himself. A lady who
sat next him at dinner without learn
ing his name afterward remarked. "1
have always longed to meet him. and
I would have been so different had I
only known who my, neighbor was."
This, unfortunately, being repeated to
Bret Harte. he exclaimed: "Now. why
can't a woman realize that this sort
of thing is insulting? If Mrs.
B. talked with me and found me un
interesting as a man. how could she
expect to find me interesting because
I was an author?"Henry Childs Mer
