Hon. James E. Watson was hon
ored by Speaker Henderson in being
appointed as one of the members of
the committee to submit resolutions
in memory of the late President Mc
Kinley. 'In accordance with a well known
sociological law the ignorant or reck
less agitator has been the really
effective friend of the evils which he
has been nominally opposing."
Sec a tor Fairbanks starts in
promptly looking after the interest
of V.a constituents. Yesterday he
called up the Indiana war claim,
amounting to some six or seven hun
dred thousand dollars. He also in
troduced two pension bills for Indi
Oklahoma will no doubt be ad
vanced to statehood by the present
congress. The territory has about
4(K),000 population, which is more
than any of the new states bad when
admitted into the union. Senator
Fairbanks introduced a bill today for
tb admission of Oklahoma.
The President's message has re
ceived practically unanimous ap
proval by the Republican press.
Democratic papers of course find ob
jections to it, for the message is sim
ply a vigorous and frank statement
of the Republican position on all the
leading questions now before the
peopie. Xnose wno expected an ex
ploitation of specific cures for all
the ills that the body politic is heir
to are of course disappointed.
There still seems to be a crazy no
tion in some localities not a thousand
miles from here that there is danger
in Richmond from smallpox. As a
matter of fact there is no smallpox
here. The last patient is entirely
-wett, though sttl being quarantined
as an extreme precautionary meas
ure. The health authorities have
treated the public with the utmost
frank-cess and honesty in this mat
ter, believinc that to be the best
policy. Nothing has been concealed.
While there is a good deal of reason
to ekiubt whether the disease is (or,
rather, was) genuine smallpox the
health officers took the right course
in acting on the theory that it was
and thereby preventing any possi
bility of its spreading. But whatever
it was, Richmond is entirely free

from the disease now, and persons ia
outside communities who are keeping

work to make the man believe that it was
only a parrot, but he felt cheap enough at
being so badly fooled.
"Sometimes Joe is very embarrassing.
A very dear old lady friend visits us who
is somewhat of an invalid and has rather
a distressing cough aud other 'leeuliarities

Joe imitates iu the precise tones, with

goods instead of being taken with us on
the cars, as usual. Joe's cage was care
fully secured on the seat beside the driv

hours beyond the customary time for the

about our gcods. but particularly about
Joe. Our fears were not relieved when
the wagon drew iu sight with the parrot

there was a chorus of 'Where's Joe?
"With face flushed with anger, the
dnver replied: "Urat the baste, or burd
or whatever he is. not a thiug cud I do

had on. au' it was all tne horsi-s cud pull,

anything, and. above all, nothing annoys
him so much as to call him "Polly." WbenJ
we put him on the porch, the children, of
course, never fail to 'Polly' him. so that
