CORRECT I ON
INDIANA'S LEGISLATURE 2.
BY ONE WHO WAS THERE.
The assembly that gathers at In
dianapolis every two years to enact
laws for the state is com posed mainly
of small lawyers, well-to-do-farmers,
ambitious editors, popular tradesmen
and a few physieians,insurance agents
and union labor men. In the main
they are -shrewd, quiet and honest;
but their shrewdness is limited to
their usually narrow experience, their
quiet habits are disturbed by the new
opportunities of their unaccustomed
life in the city, and their honesty is
even to themselves an unknown quan
tity when tested by undreamed-of
They are usually narrow-minded
and slow to receive new ideas, but
when an idea is once firmly grasp -J
they adhere to it tenaciously,, often
without understanding it. If they
arc not native Americans, as they
almost invr.rSably are, they are fully
Americanized in their ways and
habits of thought. There are alwajs
a few first-class men among them and
the intelligence and integrity of these
few command the profound respect of
the others and elevate their possessors
to positions of leadership that the de
signing ones find difficulty in break
ing away from.
I lie larger cities generally furnish
the corruDtionists and the smaller
towns the corruptions, though this
situation is quite apt to be reversed,
at least in a measure. 1 lie members
who are secretly employed to foster eight hours a day, to give two to four
special interests and to aid and guide hours to his committees and caucuses
the lobbyists for those interests are and as much more to his correspond
almost always city men, and city men, ents, besides sparing a few hours to
als., are nearly always chosen to look lobbyists, persons interested in pend
after political matters. Indeed, they ing legislation and visiting constitu
are sent to the legislature for suzh ' ents, and he must find time to inform
purposes and being bright, entertain- himself concerning Mlie measures un-
incr. open-hearted trood fellows. Der-
fectly at home in the city and able to
call the leading men in the state by
their first names, they naturally im -
press the lesser members and readily
secure the influence their obiects re -
quire. They oppose their trickery
and blandishments to the impressive
scholarship and rugged honesty of the
educated and high-minded members,
greatly to the disgust ana often to
the confusion of the latter. The
ignorance of the bulk of the members
is more depended upon than corrup
tion in most cases of objectionable
legislation. - .
Bribery undoubtedly occurs and it
can for the most part be detected by
those who have breathed the legisla
tive atmosphere and know the signs.
An assc ublyiran in Indiana gets $366
for the session, to. which is added a
small amount of mileage. His cam
paign expenses have been ordinarily
between $200 and $400 and his expenses
during the 61 cays of the session will
run cMrlnm locc thon frm rlr.lTiic o
day. Many z, man has spent as much
as $2,000 for his election, and an equal
sum during the two months he occupies
his seat. That rare bird, the mem
ber whose salary covers nis campaign
and session expenses, or even the latter
alone, and leaves him a balance saved,
is not regarded as mich of a man and
will make no friends.
Under such circumstances it is very
easy with some men, those who can ill
afford to give their money and their
time too for a mere fleeting honor, to
compound with their consciences and
accept a little honorarium for a vote or
a word where they cannot see that
anyone will be hurt by it and where
they fondly imagine that no one out
side will ever know the circumstance.
In lieu of money it may be an over
coat, or a hat, or the promise of an
appointment, or an annual p;iss, or a
night's spree some men are exceed
ingly cheap but when the man has
accepted the price aud delivered the
goods he is marked with a V on every
lobbyist's list and the rapidity of his
descent is only measured by the fre
quency with which his vote may be
needed. The , letter V stands for
venal and X, the sign of the cr)ss,
stands for exalted, unapproachable.
The lobbyists exchange this informa
tion among "'- themselves for their
mutual benefit and also tell a few
friends, just as ä matter of idle curios
ity. . y ; i ' ; U : -,
Th secret almost invariably escapes
and gets back to the bribed one's
home, and his subsequent conduct,
such as dressing for a . time a little
tetter .than jJSnalr.or living a. little
higher, or malnng an unaccustomed
investment in fJ. estate, confirms the
rumor. An aruateur- thief will
always give himself away by soon
spending the money he steals. So,
too, if he betrays great and apparent
ly unnecessary touchiness in the mat
ter of his legislative integrity and
rushes to his own, defense where no at
tack is made, he unintentionally gives
the" most convincing proof of his venal
itv. Innocent men have no cause to
anticipate that suspicion will fall up
The most ridiculous and at the same
time pitiful personage in a legislative
body is the accidental member, the
cne whose nomination or election is
secured by some of-the strange mis
chances that are constantly befalling
us in the loocenec3 of our political
system. The accident is almost in
variablv a sad misfit and he is usually
an exhalation of putrid political condi
tions or the outcome of a factional
quarrel which, after all, amounts to
the same thing. The very prepos
terousneis of the fellow excites the
risibilities and he is a great joke as he
rattles around in his seat, to be re
yarded with a grin in his struggles
a.?ainst oblivion. lie always takes
himself seriously and struts about in
dustriously filling his pockets at the
public expense, all unconscious of his
and 'absurdities. But
the gratification of our sense of the
humorous is not worth the cost when
it is considered that such things make
of our government a sorry jest and
leave a feeling of contempt ater the
laugh is past.
It is pleasanter, even if less interest
ing, to look upon the bright side of
the general assembly, where the hon
est and capable men who compose the
majority are wisely and faithfully per
forming their duties and laboring to
overcome the efforts of their obtuse
or wicked colleagues. Tact, courage
and parliamentary skill are required
by the guardians of the public wel
fare, together with much hard work
ana sieepiess vigilance, me lire or a
member who earnestly strives to be
faithful to his trust as a public ser
vant is laborious and harrassing. He
is compeuca 10 oe in nis seat six or
?r consideration. He is obliged to
1 incu're the bitter hostility of a body of
powerful and unscrupulous men who
! are always on the watch for weak
j points in his armor, and it must be
: said that on his side he generally has
but a partially aroused or, if fully
aroused, but a partially informed pub
A member is, as a rule, bound to
represent the views of those who elect
him, but he soon learns that there are
times when the voice of the people is
not the voice of God and that often
what is represented to him as the
voice of the people is only a big noise
made by a very few interested individ
uals, ile discovers that his position
enables him to procure better inform
ation and to form wiser opinions than
his constituents can and if he is con
scientious he will do that which he
knows to be right, regardless of the
effrct upon his own future.
Voters will do justice to their re
presentatives, in the long run and on
the average, but the justice may be
long-delayed or somewhat uneven; but
the people will know eventually
whether a legislator has been honest
and unselfish, or has made it a rule to
consider first the probable effect of his
actions upon his political prospects or
his personal fortune. A good man may
be dropped after his first term and a
bad one may be sent back once or
twice; nevertheless, when the public
has formed its final opinion the faith
less representative will have none the
best of it.
How (o Make Snickerdoodles.
"Snickerdoodles" is the somewhat
fantastic name of quickly made little
cakes especially dear to the chidren's
heart. A recipe for them, copied
from an old scrapbook, says: "Stir
together two cups of sugar and half a
cup of butter. "When creamy, add two
well-beaten eggs, then one cup of milk
with a teaspoonful of soda dissolved in
it; and, lastly, add two and a half cups
of flour, with two teaspoonfuls of
cream tartar and a half spoonful of
salt. Beat the batter thoroughly and
bake in shallow pans, dusting the top
of the cake with cinnamon and sugar.
Bake fifteen minutes and when cool
cut in squares. This recipe will
make two panfuls, which will then
cut into twenty-four squares."-

SHOULRERS TO THE WHEEL
Iustead of Bearing Down Give
thing a Generous Lift.
Instead of fault-finding, growling
and grumbling; instead of arguments
for some other plan, every citizen of
the town in which he lives should
give every worthy enterprise at least
his good will and aid in every possible
way. If this is not done he should
expect his town to grow sleepy, his
property depreciate- in value, and a
lethargy grow up most detrimental to
the town and county in which one
may live. If there are those who do
not propose to financially help any
proposed worthy enterprise, he can
help it to some extejit by keeping
still rather than to growl and grum
ble. All towns are alike in this fea
ture; all villages, towns and cities
have their fault-finders, while at the
same time they also have their enter
prising people; men who go ahead and
by taking advantage of everything
that comes to hand or may be in pros
pect, are the mainstay and promoters
of everything that aids the place in
which they live. Many of this sort
are quiet, earnest men, but they are
the salt and savor of their place of
abode, and do not even grumble when
some great enterprise becomes a fixed
thing and of great value to all people
to have those who opposed such enter
prises at their origin, take all the
credit to themselves for the success
that has been achieved! If we desire
our town to grow ; that its rural dis
tricts shall have Till the advantages
procurable in tbis wonderful age of
advancement; each and every one in
terested even remotely though it may
be let us one and all put our shoul
ders to the wheel and with a united
effort compel success! Instead of
growling and opposing, that is the
wav to do- Warsaw Times.

Manila, Nov. 25 Captain
Edward P. Lawton's com pa 113'
of the Nineteenth infautry has
attacked and captured an insur
gent fort on Bohl island, south
of Ccbn, in the Visayan group.
This fort was surrounded by a
precipice and the only entrance
to the higher ground was guard
ed by a stockade with a line of
intrench ments behind it. Cap
tain Lawton sent Sergant McMa
hon and twenty men to climb the
precipice and attack the fort in
the rear. Sergeant McMahon's
party accomplished their task
after three hours climbing
through the thick undergrowth
of brush and vines that covered
the almost perpendicular cliff.
They took the enemy by surprise
and drove them from the fort.
As the insurgents escaped they
had to pass the remainder of
Captain Lawton's company at a
distance of 150 yards. Here the
enemy suffered terrible losses.
The insurgents defended them
selves with both cannon and
rifles. The cannon were capture
ed. The smaller ones were re
moved while the larger ones
were buried. Captain Lawton,
in his report, makes special men
tion for bravery of Sergeants

the merits of Benson's Plaster have no use
for any other external remedy.
