Representatives tu Congress can have no higher duty to perform than the en actment of those measures which the present condition of public affairs has rendered vital to the Interests of the nation not excepting the duty of look ing after their own re-election.

We liirneil now nnd passed down n flight or wooden slep to the basement or a small brick building. I knew that we were going Into a sweater's den.

The Chicago Telephone Company has Issued the following note: Although for two or three years past special attention has been called to tho congestion of business on Saturday morulims on account of the half holi days, users of telephones this year seem to have entirely forgotten It.

The United States Brewers' Associa tion has Issued the following address: The thirty-eighth annual convention of the United States Drawers' Associa tion, held at Atlantic City, N. J., Jun6 IS and HI, Indorsed, ndonted and onlr. cd for publication, without a dissenting voice, the statement here followlug-to the trade: The unanimity with which brewers throughout tho country have agreed to add the tnx Increase of one dollar per barrel on fermented malt liquors to their former price proves conclusively that keen competition has so far lower ed tho price of their product ns to leave no mnrgln for them to assume nny pnrt of this new burdeti. Their position In facing this war tax Increase Is mnde nil the more difficult by the fact that present prices nre based upon the low market value of brewing materials ror some yenrs past and the almost certain prospect that their advance will In crease ruturo cost or production. It must be seir-evldent to nny one. whoso knowledge of Hie present state of tho brewing business and the trade lu fermented malt liquors enables blin to form nn Intelligent Judgment. Hint the thirty million dollnrs which the Government exacts by the new law In addition to the heavy burdeti alreadv carried, cannot be paid by the brewers unless collected from the dealers, nor by the dealers unless collected from the consumer. Tills Is the oillv ration. al and feasible solution of the prolv lem, and there Is no valid reason why the generally admitted maxim, that the consumer must pay the tax, should not find application lu this case, especially. if It can be brought nlwnt nt the pres cut charge of r. cents per glass and without Increasing the price per mens, ure, or the cheapening of quality. The remedy lies In doing away with the unbusinesslike habit uow followed by many dealers or using glasses or unreasonably largo size, nnd lu stop ping the wasteful practice of giving two or three times the quantity asked ami paid for by the customer, when selling by measure. As a proof of tho exieiu oi mis latter evil nnd or the lib solute need or reform we quote from a memorial addressed by the Hoard of Trustees of the United Stntes Hrewers' Association, on April Hi last, to the Committee on Ways and Means of the House of Representatives, as follows: "At present fully (tt per cent, of nil malted liquors are belmr sold bv mens. ure, affording no profit whatever to the retailer, as He Is compelled by competi tion to give two or three pints for the price of one If ho wishes to retnlu his. glass trade." F.vcn ir the proportion of miilt-llquors thus unprofltably sold Is over-estimated, It Is safe to sny that the evil Is of such magnitude as to se riously affect the prosperity of the trade In more ways than one. Reform In this respect Is of the utmost Impor tnuce and the eradication of this griev ous abuse now existing In connection with the rptnll trade of malt liquors be comes aiisointciy indispensable not merely ns nn Immediate matter of dol lars and cents, to offset the Increase or the cost or Imxt and ale by the bar rel, but ns nn effectual means or coun teracting n growing prejudice In the public mind toward the saloon busi ness, a more promising field for con certed nnd useful lnlwr, or n more need rul work than Is here offered, cannot bo fotind by the orgmilwitlons of retnll dealers throughout the country, na tional or local. The method to bo ndoptcd should not be to raise the price nnd then continue the thriftless cus tom of giving double or triple the quan tity nsked mid paid for, but to unite the retail trade upon the far more busl-npss-llkp hnblt of chnrglng n fair price for fnlr measure. The reform Is essentially In the Inter. est of sobriety, as It does nwny with n feature or the business which undenia bly tends to Incrense the danger of nbiie Insepnrnble from the drinking habits of Hip ppople. In this connec tion wp ennnot rcrmln rrom uttering n word of warning nnd pointing out Hie serious aspect under which the saloon business im v confront questions nnd condition like the present. It must b; evident to mi observing mind Hint the icmpcrniicu agitation In this country has of late years changed Its tactics. Alter decades of rallurc to overcome Hip conituon-seiisp convict Ion of the piople. that a habit followed among civilized nations the world over, from generation to generation, by the great mas. oi iui population who drink In moderation (as compared to the two In slgultlcaut minorities of nbusers nnd abstainers), ennnot lie wrong In Itsplf temperance leaders have been com. polled to look for a more vulnerable point or attack, nnd hnve directed their aggressive policy against our typical liistltiitlon-the saloon. To express It graphically, If not elegantly, they do not dwell so much on the sinfulness of Imbibing alcoholic drinks, no matter how moderately, as they hold forth against the crime of pouring them Into the neck of the Iwttle, the glass, can or pitcher, In our fashion. Their war cry now Is, "the snloon must go," mid they evidently meet with more practi cal sympathy and success In this new doctrine tlmn they did In the old one: "You must nbstntn." It will answer no good purpose to shut the pyps to Hip danger, and unless the saloon Interest of the country unites In the persistent nnd earnest en deavor to cheek public prejudice, and to counteract this systematic aggres sion by taking n firm stnnd In opxslng. as much as may lie. all objectionable fentures or the business (among which this shiftless abuse In connection with the can trade Is one. nnd one of the chlefest)-th(. prediction nowadays or ten heard that the snloon Is doomed may liecomo less or a Action and morn of a fact. It rests with the retail liquor-dealers themselves to decide, whether lu future an Imnorlnnt nun of their business, the sale of malt liq uors by measure, shall lie n nrolltalili. or a, losing one; whether the conduct of their business shall lie patterned after that of other legitimate Hues of trade, or whether they will persist In follow ing reckless business habits that do not even deserve Hm name of competition; filially, whether by the adoption of the only course dictated by both wisdom and policy on these points, they will strive to overcome' public prejudice and gain ror their business that recogni tion ns a perfectly legitimate culling, to which the popular demniid for the com modities they rurnlsh clenrly entitles them. kmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaW . .

There nre, of course, In this country thousnnds or well-conducted places, to which the strictures here made do no: apply, but the abuses mentioned are so widespread Hint there Is good reason ror addressing this appeal to the trade In general, the bottllmr initio tiu-i.i...i Ruinous competition In that branch has to a great extent reduced pmllts so far neiow a rnir remuneration, ns to open the door to the temptation of cheapen ing the quality of the goods and lessen Ing the care needed In putting them up. on which the most satisfactory condi tion or bottled nle mid beer so much depends.

Hut time hits proved that the keenest of Ids critics during that passage of Chicago's history did not re alise the great Americanism of the man during that crucial period.
