Editor Palladium: Thinking that a few words of ap proval may not be unwelcome, 1 con gratulate you upon the very reasona ble views you express upon proposed Sunday regulations. If there Is one thing more than an other that would make Satan chuckle, I think it must be the vision of min isters, and other Christian people, call- j Ing upon the aid of the secular law to enforce a religious observance. I can imagine him saying, "How weak the power of Christ must be now-, that His followers appeal to the i civil law to protect and enforce their precepts!" "If Christ is not weak. He can take care of His own as He has promised." Satan can work in no more effect ive manner than to help make hypo crites. It is heart service that God requires of His followers. But indi viduals have the right to choose whether they will accept his sacrifice or reject it. What can the civil law have to do with that? Another point. Under the constitu tion of the United States, all people are to have freedom of conscience; can serve God in the manner they each believe to be right. Atheist and Agnostic are equally protected. Where is the consistency in com pelling; them to refrain from business or amusement on Sunday? And the Jew! With Sunday legisla tion, where are his rights? Also the Increasing number of Christian people who observe the Sabbath command as written in the Bible, i. e.. "Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Six days Shalt thou labor and do all thy work; but the seventh day is the Sab bath of the Lord thy God." Justice would certainly be asleep, or dead, to require them to keep Sun day sacred. In the confusion as to what belongs to Caesar and what be longs to God. I think the churches in stead of reaping; benefit would reap hypocrites in plenty. Respectfully. A. M. I. S. The young man was admiring her beautiful and abundant hair. "What a -wealth of It there is."' he ex claimed. "When you loosen it I sup pose it drops to the floor." Huh!" broke in the little sister of the young woman. "It drops on the floor!" Chicago Tribune. Washington, May 2. That, recent fracas Senator Jeff Davis had out in Little Rock with T. L. Helm, the pro secuting attorney, who did not. like some of Davis' remarks about grafting is causing no end of comment in Washington. Then- are two a''OUNtf ef the af fair, and both are believed, according to the regard the 'ongrossincn ami senators have for Davis. One of h' in says that Helm went after Davis with his fists clenched tightly and that anv bruises resulting from the encounter eau rightly be at tributed 10 that cause. After Senator Davis ran to his ol- ! fire and unlimbered a bis navy revolv er, he explained bis action by .saying' that Helm had slruek him from the back, u.iiu;; the cane which he I the rfenalol 1 had dropped. "Helm would never have been able to get within striking distance of Davis." say the supporters of the sen ator. "Davis i.s a big. husky man. and would eat him. lie certainly must have struck him from behind." "I"!i, huh: but how could he give the senator a black ee if he struck him from behind?" ask those who, for their own reasons, champion Helm. "The lawyer must have frolicked around in front of t he big senator to put that eye on him." Then, invariably, follows a recount ing of all Jeff Davis' fights, and in this those who like to nave it appear that Davis has been setting the worst of arguments that are not wordy ones alone seem to have t he best of it.

Altogether the path of the big sena Notes of the World of Labor At their recent annual meetings the State Federation of Labor of Kansas and of Tennessee adopted resolutions declaring for woman suffrage. Affiliated to the general federation of trade unions in Germany, the brick layers and masons are among the strongest, with IX", 7 17 members at the close of l!0i. Minneapolis Typographical Union No. 42 has taken the first, step in a move to raise a fund from which to pay striking members a sum equal to that received while engaged in their regular occupation. A bill is now pending in the New York Legislature which provides for the semi-monthly payment of all rail road employes in the State. The Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen lias been most active in pushing the bill. i The Trades Union Congress of Great Britain, through its parliamentary committoo. is about to go into the daily newspaper business. Sixteen unions, with an aggregate member ship of "OO.OOO. are pushing the move- ment. which they propose to oapital- ize at. $:.00.0u0. Some idea of what it costs to pro vide for the unemployed against want may be gained by reference to the amounts expended by Typographical Union No. t. of New York, during the years lOOti and 1007. In the former year the benefit board dispensed $73.Go 1 .?r : in the latter year the to tal was $;I4,S40.27. Until recent years a remunerative Irish cottage industry bad been drawn j needlework. Nowadays this industry is killed by Japanese exports of linen to be made into drawn work, table covers and the like, which counted t'.OO.OOO yards in lftOti. Irish home workers have thus to face the compe tition of the Orientals. The new Federal law, limiting t ho hours of railroad telegraphers to nine a day. was the cause, indirect ly nf ' Ol I putting several hundred trainmen. ! who had been carried as extras to work, besides about 0.000 additional operators on the various roads of the country. The extra expenditure by the roads will probably reach about $10,000,000 annually. Leaders of labor unions in San Francisco are laying the foundation for a movement that will lead to a close scrutiny of all persons who are to becdme candidates for national. State and judicial offices. Those who have the matter in hand declare that a review of tho past shows that in the judicial lines the wage earners have not received the consideration to which they have been entitled. Labor has two representatives in Congress who hold membership cards in the Telegraphers' Union. One is Representative Carey of Milwaukee, a Republican, and the other Represent ative McDermott. of Chicago, a Demo crat. These labor men are working hard to obtain the passage of labor legislation, and since the recent de cision by the Supreme Court in the Hatters' Union case have been seek ing to have enacted an amendment to the Sherman antitrust law that wiil tor, from the time he began to amount to something in politics?, has not been a smooth one. lie has had to fight every inch of the way, and it he has come out second best in some fist fights even his enemies must con fess that he is not a second-rater in political battles. His position and his political battles are ample proof of this. Somehow the people in Washington who know Senator Davis hear of his indulgence in fisticuffs with surprise. They cannot imagine how the big. genial gentleman from Arkansas can become riled enough to forget his dig nity and go into a rough-and-tumble with thp enthusiasm of a boy. That's probably because they have always seen Senator Davis in an am iable mood. Others who have seen him when in a temper say that his voice sounds like a dinner horn, the veins in his neck swell and his ove in action and appearance is an evidence of the fighting blood that is in him. This very fighting blood, it is re marked, makes a man successful in polit ics. Congressman Nicholas I,ong-'ort h does nor often tell a story, but this is not proof that he cannot do so. Hern is one he sprung on the "new con gressman" who had recently arrived at the capital. The congressman, who was from the West, took pains to inform the con ductor, the brakeman and porter, as well as passengers, who he was before the train had traveled five miles. Ar riving in Washington he registered at the New Willard and asked as to the. kind of a room usually reserved for congressmen. He was given a cot on the eighth floor, the hotel being crowded at the time. He was up early the next morning and when he ordered breakfast he in formed the waiter of the fact that he was serving a congressman. While eating he saw his waiter in the corner of the dining room talking to two oth ers and pointing at him. All of them were laughing. His breakfast finished he made his way to the white house and informed an under secretary that he wished to see the president. He was cooly in formed that he could not see the chief executive unless he previously had made an engagement. There was no use arguing t ho matte so "good day." Our in the street a bunch of boys were having a great snow-ball fight. One of them threw a water-soaker which struck him squarely in the mouth. "Hey!" ho cried, turning savagely exempt labor unions from its provis ions. A bill patterned after tho Canadian law which has for its purpose the pre vention of strikes and lockouts, has been introduced in the Colorado Legis lature. It provides that when em ployers and their workmen can not agree upon wages or conditions of em ployment this fact, shall be reported to the Governor of the State, before any strike or lockout shall take place. The Governor shall then appoint a board of arbitration and conciliation of three members. One member shall be recommended by a committee of workingmen or their union and one by the employer, and the two shall recommend the third member, who shall have power to summon witness es and require the production of books and papers. It shall then make recommendation as to settlement of the disagreement. There will be no obligation on the part, of either side to a dispute to accept the award or finding of the commission, but the fact that no strike or lockout can be ordered or called until an investiga tion by the commission is calculated to have a good effect. Fines are pro vided for in case of violation by either side pending an investigation, as pre scribed in the measure. "Of course," said the poet's friend, "he has his faults, but he's a true poet.

"How'd you know I (was a congressman?" Congressman E. J. Bowers, from the Mississippi coast country, tells a story that he vouches is true. It i.s doubtful if anyone- believes it. You might judge for yourself, for here it is: While nailing a few- loose pickets to the fence about his house. Congress man Bowers took off his coat and laid i on the grass. When he went to get it. the speckled apparel, with his sr-m-winding watch in the pocket, w as gone. ( Over in the corner of the iot was a calf that wore a look of surprise on its face. Two years rolled by and the calf became a nice, fat heifer. She looked gt (i for beef and one morning she was slaughtered. The long-lost watch was found between her lungs. T.iat's not the worst of it the muscular ac tion of the cow's lungs kept the time piece wound up. and in two years it had lost but a minute and a half. You c;ui prove it by thf watchmaker.

"How does it taste?" asked Senator Aldrich, when lie met Senator Borah drinking at the cooler the other day. "Fine, pood: like all new things." said the senator from Idaho. He then turned to Senator Aldrich as if to invite him into a conversation, said: "Well" "Never l"gin a sentence with the word 'well.' " said the father-in-law of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. "Subsequent ly ii may not turn out well." Senator Borah found this to be true later in the day, for two of his am endments to the Aldrich bill were si lenced forever. "One time," said Speaker Cannon, "long before I came to Washington. 1 decided that tobacco was doing me harm. I gave up smoking and decided to lay aside all the money 1 would have spent, in this manner. I wanted to see how much I had been wasting. "A year later I told a neighbor of mine named P.rownsoii what I had done." 'A capital idea,' said my neighbor. "So I thought at the time. 1 told him. I started a banking account with the money I saved. " 'How did it. work?' asked Brown son. " 'At the end of the year I had sav ed $12.,' 1 answered. 'Good for you,' said Rrownson. 'Can you lend me"- "Then I told him that the bank fail ed and I asked him to have- a cigar." E-C GIRL GREETED BYJHflUSAHDS Saturday Broke All Records in the , r i il vi muiicy Ul VC1I MWdy, The reception given the E-C Girl in her journeys through tho city yester day was the most extraordinary that ever attended an advertising cam paign. As she drove through the crowded streets of the down-town dis trict she was hailed by hundreds of enthusiastic women and children whoso homes she had visited or who had heard of the good work she is do ing to advertise E C Corn Flakes and make it the best known breakfast food in the world. Yesterday established a new record in the amount of money given away. The E-C Girl drove more than thirty miles and visited more homes than she has ever done in a single day before. A feature of this campaign which is highly gratifying to the management is the extraordinary increase in the sales of E-C Corn Flakes. Many gro cers were compelled to drive to the wholesale houses yesterday to get a fresh supply of the goods, their stocks having become exhausted. Another feature which appeals es pecially to the E-C Girl is the letters she receives every day from children and even adults asking her to visit their homes. Here is a sample writ ten by a little Richmond boy: "Dear Miss E-C GM. Westcott Hotel: "Please call at our house while you are In town. We eat E-C Corn Flakes, that is almost all wo have. Mamma and we are awfully poor and papa had to go to work without his breakfast. There's CinnilID)ipft in our suits The Ideal Suits for Spring and Summer, found here.
