Three cheers for Representative Finis J.
Garrett of Tennessee, the chairman of the spe
cial committee of the house which Is Investigat
ing the long-drawn-out charges by Colonel Mul
hall that a choice collection of grafters could
make congress -eat out of their hands at any
hour of the day and night
On a recent afternoon, when young Mr. Me
Michael was telling how he used to work with
McDermott on various schemes in which the
tno of them were Interested, It suddenly dawn
ed upon several newspaper men present that
If the committee kept on with Its hearings
much longer that day and if they held a night
session there would be consternation In certain
quarters owing to the fact that handsome young
Mr. Bartwell of the Associated Press was to be
married that evening, and many of the news
paper nen present were to be ushers, guests
and general background for the affair.
So Bob Dougan, E. F. Ackerman and Joe
Annln, as a committee, told Representative
Garrett that either the wedding would be
sllmty attended or the world would go without
the news of the lobby investigation. And Mr.
Garrett, with the most gracious manner possible, announced that a wedding
took precedence over a lobby hearing, and all went as happy as a marriage
bell The committee adjourned in time to let young Ackerman try on his
silk gloves, and no one suffered for a lack of news.
Now that action of Mr. Garrett's is so different from that which would
be followed by many congressmen that it deserves passing mention. The
people of this country have the right to know everything that is being done
In congress. The members of that committee are representatives of the
people The men at the newspaper table are telling the people every day
what that lobby Investigation Is doing. The committee and the sinews of
news work hand In hand. Many a congressman sneers at the newspapers in
public when he disagrees with them or they with him, and quotes clippings
with great unction when he wants to carry a point In debate.
On the other hand, many a congreaaman says, frankly:
"I want publicity. I need It. It Is my political life," and he gets It in the
right quantity and the country Is none the worse. Another man, with scant
courtesy which he flaunts under the title of dignity, brushes aside the young
reporter, who probably will amount to just as much as the statesman in
time, and then objects to the things that are said about him in the publio
prints. ,i .

Observations made during a summer session
of congress seem to acquaint one with the true
Inwardness of things much more vividly than
thoeo made during the winter sessions. Swel
tering in his hotel one torrid evening, a promi
nent leader was bemoaning his lot. Only a few
miles distant a delightful summer home await
ed his coming, but alas he was detained here
to look after the caucus. Yet John Kerb, sen
ator from Indiana, had no Intention of "hooking
jack" from duty. It. was a humid evening and
the perspiration stood in beads on his broad
brow, and how could a human senator be ex
pected to forgot the home of his heart, amid
the Virginia mountains? Here his father was
born, and In emigrating to the west, the elder
Kern dreamed of the time when he might re
turn and own the land which so greatly and
wonderfully figured In the pictures of boyhood.
His wishes were more than fulfilled, for he
spent many happy days at the old home during
the sunset of lite.
Senator Kern Is known as a true Hoosler,
Like many Indlanans his forefathers came from
IVIrfelBlartoieemtueky and theaeetto OhlA With- m. - - I
his old home town of Kokomo are associated stirring memories of youth.
The noted Jockey, Tod Sloan, waa befriended by the senator In early daya and
did not forget him In this heyday of fame, for he never missed an opportu
nity of calling to see his friend Kern. In his own Inimitable way the senator
recalled the early daya of Indiana; while his mind was set upon holding the
Democratic caucus in line and watching every move to secure the passage
of the tariff bill. He is one of the few senators who wears a beard, which
he strokes meditatively with a patriarchal air, but hla twinkling and snap
ping dark eyes belle the semblance of age. National Magaslne.

bravest Snd most accomplished officers In the
regular army, haa been detailed to give bis
time and talents to the organised mllltla or the
nation the second line of defense. In the

tains of the west. At Fort Leavenworth, whore
he was on duty at the cavalry and infantry
school, he wrote a book on the Virginia cam
paigns of 1862. He was a captain when the
Maine went down In the harbor of Havana. In
Cuba, quoting the language of his commander,
General Young, "he participated with distin
guished gallantry and conspicuous ability in
all the engagements preceding the final sur
render of Santiago."
The medal of honor voted him by congress was won on July 1 at San
Juan, where he encouraged "those near him by his bravery and coolness,
after being shot through the head and entirely without sight.".. As a matter
of fact, the surgeons placed blm on a cot under'a tree and prophesied his
death within a short while. He heard what they said. Being a brave man
be struggled all the harder for hla life.
