Ilas anyone ever stopped a mo^^ment to fitjure what a credit bus^^iness leads to^ It is estimated^that in certain large houses in^this city that 85 per cent, of their^business is done on credit, pre^^sumably to be settled on the next^pay day. From a conservative^estimate, based on 15 years' ex^^perience in a retail house doing^a credit business, we can correct^^ly state that fully 20 per cent, of^our credits weie lost entirely,^and fully 10 per cent, were out^^standing over one year before^they were paid. Does this pay^^Cannot any man or woman pos^^sessing an ordinary amount of^common sense see that in order^to do business at all they must^make some one pay the accounts^ol the 20 per cent, that are lost.^Who is it that pays this^ Why^it can only be those who pay^cash for their goods, for although^there may be a gnat many who^do not pay, there arc none who^do not intend to pay when they^get the goods, and if you attempt^to charge these people more lor^their goods they will not buy^them. It therefoic stands to^reason that a house doing a^strictly cash business as we do^can and does sell goods at a^much smaller margin than I^house selling on time, for if we^did not we could not get the^patronage of any of the S5 per^cent, who buy on credit and the^other 15 per cent, would not be^sufficient tor us to exist.

It liad been^the original cause of the creation of Lo^^gan county, which at first had a precari^^ous existence, hut the validity of (be act^creating it was finally decided favorably^by the supreme court of the United^State*. Now L ^gau county is a bit of^ancient history, unless the governor^should withold his signature to the hill.
Thereis still left an appeal to the^courts, of which Logan county will not In-^slow lo avail itself. The new constitution^provided that the counties could not lie^divided unless two-thirds of the people^effected should vote in favor of division.^Hut the legislature has cut the gordion^knot by burying two old counties. Ac^^cording to the new bill, all the county of^^ficers of oltl Logan and Alturas counties^are legislated out of office, the governor^being empowered to appoint them over^again to the new counties.

Washington,Feb. 14. ^During the^i morning hour the land court bill was^1 taken up and passed. A long discussion^i ii-iied regarding the carrying dut of the^; outer of business arranged ill the repiib-^[ licaii caucus. Some said consideration^| of Ihe appropriation bill would consume^I thr remain ler of the session to tuc ex^^clusion of everything else unless busi^^ness could lie expedited.
Onmotion of Sherman, the senate^then went into executive session. Among^other confirmation* was that ofChailes^Foster, seeretaty of the treasury. The^sundry civil ap| ropriallon bill was^then taken up, consideration being^on the worid's fair paragraph.

The com^^mittee had re|m^rte^l an amend^^ment fur a limited appropriation^during the next fiscal year. It was ex^^pected that machinery of ihe exposition at^Chicago waiuld speedily adjust Itself tothe^proposed conditions.
MiPhcrsoii, still referring to the large^sular.es. said fear was expressed in some^quarters that if that thing was allowed lo^go on, there would be very little of the^appropriation ol $1.50U,OUU to Ihj devotetl^tti any purpose oilier than the payment^ol salaries.
Allisonsnid it was not Intended to con^^tinue toe present p.an and arrangement,^H was expected that whatever the otlleial^stuff or luuiiagf mi nt might be in I hicngo,^the great hotly of their compensation^would he paid out of the fluid raised for^the exposition by voluntary contributions^or from the gale receipts.
awloyinquired whether the amend^^ments reported would enable the lady^managers to hold meetings. Allison re^^plied it wus the ^ xpcclutioii that the fund^would enable the lady managers to hold^meetings during Ihe fiscal year and in^the next Used year. The fin il vole wus^taken and the nno lidni. tit reported by^tli^ committee wus agreed to.
