Washington is watching with
much interest the working out of a
distinctively new idea in public af
fairs This is the Peoples Lobby
a nonpartisan organization de
signed to foster a wider knowledge
of national legislation and to in
dorse or oppose such bills as affect
the general welfare of the people
The ba ic idea is that if the
people know the facts on legisla
live matters public opinion will
find such vide expression thai it
cannot be disregarded Channels
of publicity are not lacking The
Peoples Lobby has the support of
a large number of leading news
papers and of such publications as
Success Colliers and
An important branch of the
work of the organization is the
careful compiling of the public
secord of every Senatoi and Repre
sentative The people have a
right to know from an unprejudiced
source what their hgislators are
doing The influences brought to
bear on members of Congress will
also be examined into this means
a history af the third house
the secret lobbyists who are so
successful in influencing legislation
for the benefit of the special in
terests which employ them
The plan seems broad enough
aud practical enough to augur
great good if intelligently carried
into effect The personnel of the
governing committee and of the
men in charge of the bureau in
Washington wouldseem to prom
ise this result and the willingness
of the people to endorse the pro
ject and to support it with their
subscriptions is attested by hund
reds of communications received
from every state in the union and
from Panama Hawaii and the
Philippine Islands Enthusiastic
letters are still being received
daily and the organization con
tinues to make its appeal foi sub
scriptions for any amount from SI

Sheppard Thrills the House
dazzling oratorical outburst
marked the close of the proceed

tives yesterday the performer be
ing the young Texas prodigy Rep
resenative Morris Sheppard wboBe
masterful handling of almost in
comprehensible figures when deal
ing with tariff and protection was
only equalled by his brilliant pow
er as a fancy sketch artist of the
peerless order
The theme of his declaration
waa the amazing vitality of the
Democratic party and the impati
ence of the Republican party
clothed with almost unlimited and
apparently unending power
What a picture it presents said
Sheppard unable to accomplish
anything except Democratic or
nonpartisan measure The Re
publican party swollen with the
spoils of office corpulent wine of
power distended with the dropsy
of corruption drags it3 huge body
over the halls of legislation help

past powerless before the prob

deacon prayed might be given to
Sam Jones from on high Oh
Lord he said gib Brudder Jones

hands to de gospel plow Bow his
head in some lonesome valley
where prayer is much wonted to
be made Noint him all over wid
de kerosene oil of Dy salvation
and set him afire
And then he concluded With
an enthusiasm that cannot die let
us gather beneath the stainless
standard of the stainless leader
who in a recent private journey
around the globe was honored of
the nations bb perhaps no other
private citizen of any country was
ever honored before whose every
heart beat is a throb of brother
hood whose soul is illumed with
the love of man whose arm is tire

What the W C T TJ is Doing
At least we are trying It is something
to try to do good is it not And we have
the comfort of knowing that it is only
the effort that God aekes for the suc
cess belongs to Him
Once a week we have met together to
plan the best we know how in order to
do the best we could The W C T U
is an organized hody of women from all
denominationsbanded together to work
for God Its departments include Mis
sion work Mothers meetings Sabbath
School workSabbath observance Social
purity mercy Antigambling educa
tional and press Department and oth
ers Our president Mrs Haywood is a
woman of unfailing energy and to her
efforts our success is due Mrs M
Jones is superintendent of the mission
department Only the recipientskuows
of the clothing given away of the poor
women made glad by nice dinners of
money given for wood of flowers sent
to cheer the desolate The W C T TJ
women are so noted for their charities
that a case of need is always reported
to them but it is hard to get them to
report what they do Once a month
Mothers meetings are heldwhere ideas
are exchauged articles are written by
mothers competent to advise and ar
ticles read from Mothers magazines
The mothers subscribe for magazines to
help them and everything that can be
instructive is used to make the home a
power for good At the railroad sta
tions are boxes made by Mr J N
Thomas and every week a committee is
appointep to fill these with religious lit
erature for free distribution Literature
is also taken to the jail and sometimes
flowers Miss AliceEmmert has charge
of the educational department She
has been having her pupils write essays
on the Evil Effects of Alcohol The
best of these essays are to be published
in the Jimpmcute Mrs Benefield is
our competent press superintendent
We all know how faithfully and how
well her work has been done
Believing that the Bible is Gods rule
to guide man and woman we devote
part of our weekly meetings to studying
it Believing that prayer is the greatest
means we have to gain strength to work
for God we emphasize the importance
of morning aud evening prayer and of
observing silent moments for morning
consecration We also take magazines
to help us to understand our daily Bible
Our greatest success has been the es
tablishment of our Y Mrs D M Smith
is superintendent of that department
With the assistanca of Mrs Singleton
they have erganized a Y with 25 mem
bers Only think of it Twentyfive
young people in our town working for
temperanceaud purity To Mrs Mose
ley and Miss Daisy Hughes of Atlanta
also credit is due for aiding in this
noble work
Constantly we are being told that we
are accomplishing nothing for temper
ance We think that intoxicating liquor
causes most of the unhappineBs in this
world that it breeds poverty and crime
that it always curses and degradestbat
it robs its victims of miud of morals of
affection of will of heart of salvation
that with increasing power it is hurling
people into hell multitudes of people
every dry We think that the only safe
ty from this great evil is in total absti
nence But the majority of our town
think differently Until we can per
suade others to believe as we do we are
not strong enough to rid our homes of
tbis monstrous evil Therefore our
greatest effort now is to educate When
Jericho was to be taken the people
marched around the city every day for
seven days It seemed a very useless
thing to do But that was necessary be
fore the angel broke down the walls so
so they could enter and fight We are
marching around Jefferson now The
angel will come to open a way for us to
fight and to overcome the giants of
evil that hold dominion
A story was once told of five wise vir
gins who kept their lamps filled with
oil ready for service Our aim is to be
like them On the sea coastwhere there
is great danger of Bhip wrecklight hous
es are erected It is said that many
birds misunderstanding these lights
fly against them They do not hurt the
lights bnt they destroy themselves
We have set up our light house Do
you think it useless Do you want the
light put out I warn you not to fly
against it Was it your boy who went
staggering home that night Or did not
come at all Was it you who bowed your
face upon your armswhile you felt your
heart break from the greatert sorrow of
your life Was it you who sent up to
God a great cry for help If it was not
you it was some other woman Did I
say some other woman How many
other women right here in Jefferson
God help tbem We too would like to
help tbem Do you think we ought not
to try I wish you could have heard the
pitiful wailing of that wife whose hus
band was shot down in a saloon not
long ago I wish you could he awake
all night with her cries echoing in your
ears as I did Only think of eight mills
in this town grinding day and night
manufacturing lost souls the souls of
my loved ones and of yours perhaps
Dojou want us to put out our light
Years agothe WCTUdisbanded Sup
pose its members had persevered Sup
pose that with faith in God and in
themselves they had worked on until
they had gained the victory Can you
think of any wrecked lives that might
have been strong good men today Can
pou think of any graves that might
have been left undue to dav Do you
want us to quit trying We will not
We can not for God is moving us
Perhaps we will rescue your boy or
your girl Would you not like to help

for reinforcements somebodys darlings

mingled with the Assyrians as they

month by an El Paso physcian they
were given certificates thit they were

The inspector knowing the disease
could not be cured In that length of

at the port was dismised from service
Since that time one other surgeon has
been on duty at the El Paso port and
the Assyrian immigration has dropped

nothing Only one Assyrian applied
