WAsniNOTON, March 10th, 1807,
This has been a week of stirring and im
portant events in Washington both as te
their present and prospective effect upon
National affairs and party organization.
Everybody of course knows that Presi
dent McKinley sent his message te Cen
grcjp en the first day of its meeting, and
that it was concise, clear, and businesslike
It showed the remarkable deficit under the
existing lewTariff Law and suggested the
importance and .necessity of instant action
in the way of net only aa increasc in reve
nue but apen & protective asis. Then it
The raeiiBge reached Cf;rcss during
the first feTr hours of its stW-.ti and, be
fore that day's letsicn '.,vJL ended, the
Heuse htd erganised, the Srerer had ap ap
peintsd a Ways and Moure Cf:nmittee, the
new Tcriff Bill had bejj ireduced and
famished te every meinj". of Congress,
and before semet of thr.t ay a call was is
sued for meeting, en lae following day,
of the new committee with the understand
ing that the bill would be reported back te
Congress befere tLe end of the week and
passed by the Beuse bcterc the end of the
Thus the new Administration and Con
gress begin their work of restoring order
fied prosperity in a vigorous business-like
manner. Contrast this action with that of
the Cleveland Administration and Free
trade Congress. It was nine months and
fifteen days from the date of the inaugu
ration of Cleveland until his Free-trade
leaders presented their Tariff Bill in the
liouse. It was nine working days and
fifteen hours from the time William Mc
Kinley was inaugurated President until
he had his Protection Congress in session
and the new Tariff Bill ready for con
sideration of its members.
The new bill is based te a great extent
upon the McKinley Law, but is much mere
advantageous te the farmers than was
that act. This is especially true with re
ference te the wool schedule about which
the farmers felt great anxiety. While the
rates of duty named by the bill are the
same as theso named in the McKinley Law
a change in the classification and sched
ules will prevent the bringing in of wools
suitablefer clothing under the carpet-wool
schedule as,was dene under the McKin
ley Law, This was the most unsatisfac
tory feature of the McKinlcyLaw; that the
importers of wool were able te bring in
clothing wools under fraudulent represen
tations at carpet-wool tates of duty. The
new bill takes advantage of the experi
ence of the old one, and will shut off this
fraudulent practice en the part of the
wool importers, and thus make the new
law very satisfactory te the wool produ
cers, while its ether features relative U
farm products will entirely meet the ap
proval of the farming community.
Speaking of farmers and the attitude of
the new Administration and Congress to
wards them, it is interesting te observe
that members of Congress nre expressing
the highest appreciation of the methods
which the new Secretary of Agriculture
is inaugurating in the management of
that Department. Be is proving a happy
combination of practical farmer and
scientific student of intelligent agricul
ture lie has set en feet a system of in
quirleB and experiments through which
he hopes te greatly diversify the farm
products of the country, and incrcase
very largely the earning capacity of the
farmers, and at the same time keep at
home a hundred million dollars of cold
cash which we are new sending abroad
every year. One of his first acts was te
distribute several tens of sugar-beet seed,
sending packages te every county in every
state where beet culture seems at all likely
te be successful. Thcse are te be util
ized, and the beets which are grown from
them sent te the experiment stations of
the states for analysis, thus proving a ba
sis of intelligent study of the capacity of
the various atates for producing the sugar
for which we new pay te ethor countries
a hundred millions of our geed money
every year. In many ether details of
farm work and opportunities for improve
ment of the class of farm productions the

President McKinley is moving forward
in bis preparations for bringing about in
ternational action en the silver question,
lie is as prompt and busincis-like in this
as he is in his action en the question of
Tariff and revenue. While a definite
plan of action has net yet been announced,
a statement has been made that he will
probably appoint ene or two special com
missioners te visit Europe and efUcially

William J. Bryan te use the language
of the sporting arena just new popular.
Congressman Bailey of Texas, although
a silver man, could net swallow all of
Bryan's heresies in the campaign, and de
clined te be a candidate for reelection te
Congress because he was net willing te
take the chances of being embroiled with
a President with whom he could net agree
en important National methods. This
made a distinct issue between Bailey and
Bryan, who were, while in Congress to
gether, the two youngest men of the
Heuse. Mr. Bailey, however, was fi
nally induced te allow his District te re
elect him te Ceugeess, and when the Dem
ecrats of the Heuse of Representatives
the ether day selected their candidate for
Speaker, the anti-Bryan men rallied
around Bailey and by an enormous ma
jerity elected him as the representative
of the Democratic party in the Heuse by
nominating him for Speaker. This is
looked upon by politicians as a virtual
repudiation of Mr. Bryan by the Demo
crats of the Heuse of Representatives and
a notice served upon him that he is wast
ing time in posing as a perennial candi
date for the Presidential nomination in
