Thursday, Dec. 12, 1907. Tin: sixtikth Congress liold its Jlrat soaslon last weak. Tho cliiof feature of tho proceedings in the Sonnto whs the swearing in of now members, The IIouso of Repre sentatives organized with tho elec tion of Joseph G. Cannon as speaker. Following this, the most important ineidont of the Houso session was the protest mn.de by John Sharp Williams, tho Demo cratic loader, against tho adoption of tho rules which have of late years governed tho proceedings of the body. Mr. Williams declared that the rules were arrogant and harmful and should not be adopt ed for more than thirty days, pending preparation of better ones. Ho spoke of the growing sentiment in the Republican ranks againBt tho rules, and cautioned the younger members of tho House that unless they voted to properly amend them they would be bound hand and foot to the speaker's chariot throughout the entire Con gress. Notwithstanding this warning, only a few of the Repub licans iiad the courage to vote to support Mr. Williams' amendment. The rules of tho House of Repre sentatives, as they aro today, practically place all power over legislation in the hands of the speaker and the committee on rules TinTriAri lie liim TCvnn fluxitrvli Mia rj ...u. ..j.vf..

It can do anything it pleases without let or hindrance, and in shoit order. Yot the elec tion of Spenker Cannon and tho guarded utterances of this and other standpatters indicate that nothing is to bo done this session in any way progressive or radical, no matter how imperatively de manded, Tho Republican party lias an election Jo carry next fall, and all the interests of the Nation are to be subordinated, if not sac rificed, to a partisanship that is frankly concerned only with poli tics and with the interests of priv ilego which contribute to tiie party campaign funds. Now, there aro many important public questions that have already waited long to be settled. There are many abuses against which the Presidout, the spokesman and head of his pnrty, has written and talked, scolded and pleaded with these congressmen to do, and they have been deaf or disappointing to his appeals, though confronted with unmistakable evidence that these pretty correctly express pub lic sentiment.

The Crowds are Coming A Mighty Rush i""m or JDusiness Come With t the Crowds Pkksiih.nt RoosvEtvr's message ", although of great length, contains little of importance beyond what ho has already said in previous similar documents frjm which copious quotations arc made, or in public addresses. Naturally tho chief interost centers in what ho has to suy concerning tho anti trust corporation regulation laws and tho currency. As to tho form er his utterances arc less radical than in tho past. Ho advocates such amendments as will permit combinations and agreements for certain logitimato purposes under such regulations as will prevent the creations of monopolies. He wants tho people on one hand pro tected from overcharges and small er concerns fr.im being driven out of business by the fixing of too low rates by thoso which desiro to absoib them. Ho wants further provision made against future ovei -capitalization, intimating that past sins in tiiis respect will be condoned ns far as the Govern; ment is concerned. Ho again nsks for the chartering by the Govern ment of all corporations doing an intorstato business, or tho issuing of Federal licenses to them.

To speak briefly: We shall place on sale at our sales-room, first floor, Gallagher Ave., our entire stock of Women's, Misses' and Children's winter cloaks and piece goods, and, for a short time, will retail these garments and piece goods to the public at our regular wholesale prices to dealers, at a reduction of 33 1-3 per cent., which means 50 per cent, from retail prices. Wc have been established in business in Logan as manufacturers for the past five years (our garments being for sale by the leading retail stores throughout Ohio and adjoining states), and we have never before sold direct to the retail trade here or elsewhere at these prices. This season, however, finding ourselves greatly over stocked, owing to unfavorable trade conditions which have prevailed all over the coun try, we are obliged to resort to extraordinary methods in order to reduce our stocks. When we say that the public will be allowed to buy direct from us at these prices, we mean just that. There will be no deviation, however, from our prices as given. This cannot be stated to emphatically. Our stock consists exclusively of the latest style gar ments, and a great variety of fancy mixtures. The list below shows how our wholesale prices compare with the usual retai store prices. In many instances our prices are no more than half of what the same garments sell for at retail.

Ho recog nizes tho need of an emergency ourroncy which shall bo based up on adequate security, subject to the approval of tho Government, and a hoavy tux. His recommen dations on this subject are unfort unately lacking in definitonoss. Tno desirability of tariff reform is admitted by the President, but, as usual, ho wants it deferred to some future timo. Heroin lie lost a grout opportunity to spoak out for tho peoplo who are laboring under tho heavy burdens caused by tho unduly high tariJF, which, in fact, should be largely credited with tho oxisting business troubles. The Prosulont asks for an exten sion of tho Fcdoral powers in sev eral directions on tho ploa that such extension is noccBsary, but full to provo his case. He wants immonso appropriations for tho navy. Congress should ourtail the nuvnl and military expenditures as asked for by tho President and use tho money tluiB saved to pro mote the polioy of tho improve ment of the wator-ways, which ho greatly favors, Somo of his reo ommondutinns, such as those for postal envinga bunks, and tho abo lition of tho tariif on wood pulp should receive favorable consider' atlnn, Tho significance of Mr. Hryan's Ylslt at tho White House, two weeks ago la now apparent He brought a few plunks of (he w- age along with hlw. The Long Lane is Turning. That battle-scarred political warrior, John It. Malloy, secretary of tho Republican stato executive committee, while nt Washington attending tho mooting of the na tional committee, gnve out an in terview which undoubtedly oponed tho eyes of Republicans of other states and ono that will have a tendency to cool the ardor of those who have boen urging tho nomina tion of Secretary Taft, the hoir npparont. Among other things Malloy said that if Taft becomes tho Republican candidate for President Ohio may at onco be placed in the Democratio column. In Fiipport of the assertion he said that Tuft's nomination meant the earnest opposition of union labor, chilliness on tho part of tho big manufacturers owing to his advo- oacy of tariff reform, and tho to tal dosortion of tho forty-odd thousand negroes, without whoso support even in normal conditions the state would be. clnso and doubt ful, while with them voting the Democratio tiekot the advorso ma jority would bo overwhelming. OhioDemsorats aro wishing Malloy hud remained at home; he hud no excuse running about tellinc fami ly seorets. While evory ono in Ohio possessing oven tho slightest political aoumen will admit tho truthfulness of his statements, thoy think ho might havo udded that which is equally uppuront, namely, that if his oandiduto For- ulcor is nominated the result would bo the sumo, and that no matter who tho candidate may bo tho situation from a Republican stand point looks dark, very dark, The natural effect of his interview, owing to Ins prominence and repu tation as a successful political manager, will be disastrous to the Taft boom, lor If it once becomes a gMed conviction with out-id Republicans that Taft cannot carry his own state it is impossible to conceive how thoy can bo in ducod to voto for him. Of course Manager Vorys, Son-in-Law Nick and n hordo of lieutenants wore on hand to deny and combat Mulloy's claims, but as ho had tho backing of Senator Forakor, Sena tor Dick, Adjutant General Critch field nnd numerous others tho statesmen gatherod at the national capital must havo felt convinced that the Republican situation in tho Buckeye stute is in a stato of chaos somewhat resembling Gener ttl Sherman's description of war.
