Some members of the House on Mon
day enjoyed a scrapple for a few mo
menta, owing to what they agreed, aft
er they had hunted up and got back
their lost tempers, was a little mis
understanding." Representative Rob
ertson intimated in the debate on the
Income Tax bill, that moneyed inter
ests were at work endeavoring to de
feat it. This at once brought the sen
sitive Loebenstein to his feet. He felt
that the House was a young girl whose
reputation must not be trifled with.
The intimation that boodle fluid could
find its way into the water-tight com- '
partments of Legislative virtue, de
manded, in his opinion, the severest
rebuke. Mr. Robertson's remarks, he
"believed, were mud halls, thrown on
the chaste and spotless white robes of
the House's character. He at once
made remarks that indicated that he
would like to have the Speaker order a
tub of boiling oil into the House, and
direct the Sargeant-at-Arms to souse
Mr. Robertson into it before the mem
bers. Mr. Loebenstein is the same person
who, a few weeks ago, as a member of
the House, charged President Dole and
the Government with violating the
Constitution and laws. At the time' it
was supposed by some that he was
merely playful, and his accusations of
treason were only the fiery little jets of
a temperament that had been fed on
the hot lavas of Kilauea. But it seems
that the honorable member had been
reading Mark Twain's Joan of Arc, and
he felt that a male of that persuasion
was a "long felt want" in these parts,
as a check upon the perfidious Govern
ment. So he offered to represent that
.heroic character, and did so until the
House got tired of his heroics.
It is rather amusing to see a man
who without offering a particle of
proof, charged the Executive with in-
ratnmicj crimes, suddenly becoming
frantic, when a fellow member ob
scurely intimates that the rich men

The Speaker of the House was in
error, when he failed to order the
Sargeant-at-Arms to throw five pounds
of Scotch snuff into the air, and set the
belligerent members to sneezing. A
man who is sneezing usual lets go his
hold, and doesn't look statesmanlike or
But the Attorney General came in

It is the anniversary of the death of

While the American people are al
most jubilant, as well they may be, in
the cause of a war for humanity, some
of the sober kind are asking how shall
the war bills be met.
The vast proportions of the great
Civil war put immediate taxation for
n entirely out of the question. It was
justly felt, that the generation that
trove ud its blood and time to tne caube,
had the right to call on prosterity to
take some of the burden. When tne
war expenses reached over $3,000,000
r rtav. the burden of paying me m
terest on that amount was enough for
fhe fichting generation to bear.

Unless the war terminates speedily,
the expenses of prosecuting it may
reach half a million per day. In re
ferring to the daily expenses of the
great Civil war, the cost of it was esti
mated in paper money, which forced
gold to an enormous premium. It is
evidently not the intention of the Gov
ernment to let gold go to any premium.
While the silvermen, in Congress are
patriotic and heartily agree in the war
policy, there are symptoms of their in
tention to push the sliver question to
the front, if there is need of issuing
bonds. Their strength is probably
sufficient to make the bonds payable in
silver, or give notice to the world that
there will be doubt about the coin in

President, and the gold men, will press

Congress desired several months ago
to tax beer, but the beer interest called
a halt, and it was not done. Mr. Ding

then see the war power of the saloon.

Thousands of these people say Hood's
Sarsaparilla has cured them.
The testimonials of cures by Hood's

Pure blood is the foundation of health.
Hood's Sarsaparilla is the One True Blood
