April I Congressional1 people do not lihe I lie piospcct jf re- , maining in Washiuiiion until the very I eve of tlii1 republican national con- j vent ion. but it is now apparent i tlietn tiuit they may as well accept the; situiuion as gracefully as 1 hey can. j What was until a recently a specula- tion. is now definitely underHood ; that is, tliat President Uoosevelt is not ; going to countentince a half-way legis-. lutive program for this s.esion. Ho will lu-ep the law-mahers busy until the very last hour, unless t hey see fit to escape from the capital city t lie sooner by rushing through some work. It was generally understood at the beginning of this session that it would . be a "little, doing'' session. This is usually the case in years when such ini- portant matters as the selection of ;i presidential candidate occupies every man prominent in national public life. The president wants to break 1 iio routine this year and have congress get out of the rut. He wants an act j for the reorganization of the Sherman; Anti-Trust act. and. unless congress does something in this matter, be is, prepared to take measures that will , put his party in a bad plight with the country. In short, unless; those who j hoid back such legislation step aside and permit its enactment, their con stituents will he given lo understand that they are thwarting the adminis tration program. The president, has been urging the immediate enactment. of antitrust measures. Ife was not en ournged as he should have been, not because the law-makers tire not in favor of anti trust laws, but because they hesitate to take any such steps on presidential election years.

If the president's wish is not carried out, it is entirely likely that what he will haw In say will hae an effect at t In pulls next ear. The impression prevails that . con gress would like- to pass the ant i-t rust, act through the house, sent it. to the senate and there tie it. up in commit tee so long that its passage during this i-esrdon v. on Id be impossible. The pres ident lias informed some of the leaders that he is not disposed accept such a program. A few weeks more will show w het li ft' or not he has been able to place the curb bit on those who dared opposi tion t o t he administ ration. Dr. Wiley, chief chemist and pure food expert, is not against a man tak ing a. little "nip" or whisky now and then. He delates that whisky, after all. is a good thing for folks who drink it in moderation. "Alcohol is bad for the human s. s tem," he says, "but whisky is good for the alimentary processes, bceausp the other constituents of good whisky over come tin1 (vi! effect of tiie alcohol con tained in it." in-. Wiley then set forth, that in as much as most drinkers, no matter how much, liquor thty consume in the course of a day. maintain they are mod crate drinkers, the danger of drawing the line in the wrong place is such that it is safe to leave the "nips" alone." For instance, a man who drinks twenty "nips" of liquor a day, if asked what effect it has on hint, will say (hat he drinks moderately. knows when lio has enough and stops in time, therefore, does himself no harm. Xo man wall's to consume enough whisky to become a drunkard. Dr. Wiley says. When beginning to drink, every man believes himself to be a moderate drinker. it is like sliding down a hill the start is moderate, but. the finish is sometimes disastrous if EAUTIFUL TEMPLE Mason Will Spend Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars in Construction.

It is a fact become addicted to whisky drinking through the saie of impure whiskies than the public is generally aware. liven the men who frequent saloons ;ue not well-informed on this subject. As an instance, a number of sam ples of whisky were brought to the de partment here from saloons in New York some of them from the l-'ast Side, others from ;ilong Park Row and the Bowery, and still others from ho tels, where a (h. cent grade of whisky should be dispensed. The government experts found I ha' the greatest majority of this whisky was made in the cellars of the various emporiums. There was sufficient drugs in the whisky to make a dope fiend out of any may who persisted in drinking the ilo stuff. "No wonder ou find derelicts along the Bowery," said one of the experts, who examined the stuff. "There is enough poison in some of the whisky sold in New York to keep a man down if ever he- fails.

TO ENFORCE SUCH AN EMBARGO DIFFICULTIES WOULD BE EN COUNTERED AND IT REALLY WOULD NOT AFFECT COUNTRY. New York. April 4. The plan to make reprisals upon Venezuela for iter failure to come to terms with the I'uited States on the question of pend ing American claims by laying an em bargo upon Venezuelan products, for bidding their importation into this country, is declared by the New York merchants engaged in the Venezuelan trade and familiar with its conditions to bo futile. Alfred Debujs, an official of a .'imm inent firm which has an important trade with Venezuela, speaking1 of th plan to (dace an embargo on Venez uela asphalt and enact a practiealy prohibitive duty on coffee from that country, said: Endless Difficulties. "Should the attempt be made to en ! :ee ;i policy so ill-advised Castro would simply laugh at us. To enforce such an embargo would entail endless. difficulties and even though we shoulu compel all Venezuelan products to be plainly stencilled 'From Venezuela, that country would easily find a mar ket for her goods elsewhere.
