Cummin* Reports R. R. Bill Washington, Nov. B.—(Bpeciol cor respondence) Senator Cummins, Chairman of the Interstate Commerce Committee, has reported the railroad bill showing the results of the care ful consultation that his committee has bestowed upon it. It has been placed on the Senate Calendar where it will remain until after the final disposi tion of the peace treaty. Mr. Cum mins declares, however, that the meas ure will be enicted before adjourn ment of the present session of Con gress. If it should not be, he said the Senate would be justly subject to “the condemnation of every fair-minded min in America.” Soldier Graves Neglected Chief Justice McCoy of the Suprem* Court of the District of Columbia has appeared before the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House in a hearing on the Bland bill to return our soldier dead, and criticized the War Departs ment for alleged neglect of graves ia France. Justice McCoy lost a son overseas, and has but recently return ed from a trip to the battle areas, during which he located and provided for the private care of Lis son’s grave. His comments, therefore, are based on personal observation of conditions as they actually exist. Would Discourage Unlawful Deficits During the discussion of the budget bill Li the Houoe, Congressman Gra ham of Pennsylvania was the author of ■ n amendment tint, if it remains in the bill, will do much to discourage the vicious and unlawful deficits .n which every department is continually involv ing itself. “The comptroller general,” re td.s Mr. Graham’s amendment, “shall specially report to the Congress every expenditure or contract made by any head of a department in any year in excess of the appropriation to such de partment and in violation of law.” Having had its attention specially call ed to each deficit Congress can then pass it by if it d(cms proper, or take other appropriate action. No Mandates Wanted The Senate haa indicated a desire to possess itself of the report of Gen. Iturbord against the proposal of a Unit'd States mandate for Armenia. Although it is said that Col. House •as assured the forpigr ministers of England and France that Armenia would be taken ov r by this country, it is becoming increasingly evident that the project will not be srnctionad by the Senate. The Stonewall of Realism If American labor refuses to pro duce for American consumption, it will find that there are German fac tories working over-lime producing eommidities which will be offered in the American market with the aid of the Wilson-Undcrwood free trade tar iff law. America—“ Pack-horse *of Europe” Senator Gronna is right in saying that our adoption of the league of na tions covenant would make the United States the pack-horse of Europe. And a nation that would willingly assume .'Uch a humiliating position would mer it application of the name of a pack snimal in less repute than the horse. Some History, Hennery! The Newberry election probe has begun, but Hank Ford received his probe while suing the Chicago Tribune. Thnt was enuff! No U. S. Senator wunts to argue American history with Hennery'. Ironic Economy Here’s an ironic display of economy. While Secretary of War Baker was purchasing a ham at the Department’s fo-operative store and carrying it out under his arm, the War Department was also gelling the town of Nitro, West Virginia, at a loss to the Gov ernment of approximately $60,000,000. Uniform Type for the Blind. American libraries for the blind art rejotring over the fact riant they will uo lougar ha obliged to have book* In five different kind* of raised lettera In order to accommodate readers taught la different parts of the country and at dlffarent periods After many yaara of discussion a uniform type, to ba known as “revised Braille. 4 has been agreed upon, and hereafter all books embossed In this country are to be la the new type. “The Deserter." by Richard Harding Davis, was the first book to ba published In rovlsod Braille. —Scientific American. HIGH HONORS PAID JUDGES . Imposing Ceremonies That Used to Mark Tholr Coming to the Vari ous County Aastzeo. The stately ceremonies which have attended the coiling of an Kiiglfsh Judge to the comity assizes, three times la each year, uiuv be accounted for by the fact thnt the Judge, on these occasion*. represented the king, snd for the time being was accorded courtesies not very different from those which would he off.-r»*d the king himself. In the quaint old city of Chester, which all traveling Americans know better, perhaps, than any city of Eng land outside of London. It was the custom, before railroads were known. | for the high sheriff of the county to j meet he Incoming Judge with n body of ineu. armed with Javelins, at the border of the county which he was leaving In order to conduct him In safety to the place In which he was i to rostde during the term of the Oieablre court. Thla came to be a vary Imposing ceremony. On one oc caalon, 60 years ago. the ofllce of high sheriff was filled by a baronet, who awaited the Judge at the county bor dere with 16 Javelin men. 40 servants 100 tenants, his entire family (filling stately carriages), trumpeters in two detachment* two prominent editors In their carriages, and several of tba county gentry.— He’eu Marshall Pratt In Bt.
