YOUNG SENATORS MORE THAN ACTIVE Tbey Surprise the Old-Timers By Their Disregard For Time Honored Traditions. Washington, May 5.—Time was in the senate when a new member who • ventured to oppose the ruling coterie —or the old-timers—would be so thor oughly disciplined that he would not forget in years. Time was when new senators sat still and listened when the old-timers spoke and, if they had feelings persuading them to arise and oiler a criticism, they smothered them. The old-timers were the bosses. That time was. It is not the case at present. The young senators are kick ing over the traces with a vehemence that is startling. It is particularly startling to the Old-timers themBelves The iguardlans of traditions are much surprised, to say nothing of their indig nation. They cannot understand why the fledglings are so daring—or per haps, they have long since disappeared to be replaced by opinions swift and enduring. Until this session, the young sena tors had to sit around on the outside edge aud pick at the crumbB of the real statesmanship of the senate. It is natural that some time he would get tired. One itme Senator Dolllver slipped the halter and capered around, causing some annoyance to the old-timers. He was, of bourse, punished for it and be came content not to get obstreperous, again, but the days of disciplining the Tefractory are rapidly passing. The young senator, if he has something to say, gets up on his legs and says it. He does not consult the feelings of the W Let Us Care For Your Eyes And relieve your trouble. F. W. QUEEN, Oph. D.

I Optical Specialist, ■a older men before doing so, either. There's Senator Hale, of Maine, for instance. In my dispatch, I explained that Senator Hale was one of the last men the younger senators would cross swords with. Along came Sena tor Burkett, who did not like a speech of Senator Hale's and he stood right up fn the aisle and said so. Everyone held their breath to see what would happen. Then they began to breathe naturally again—for nothing hap pened. It is pretty hard for the old-timers to let go their grasp of the senate. They feel it keenly. For twenty years Sen ator Hale has scolded the members whenever he felt like it This scold, ing caused the brewing of a revolt. When one of the younger element re sented something done by the older senators, he was not alone in the movement. He had the sympathy of the gallery, as well. ad the younger men on the floor. Senator LaFollette, who never did show a disposition to bow to a yoke, has Evidenced the audacity to say nay when he did not like the exercise of the prerogative of the old-timers. There was an anxious moment not long ago when the Aldrich bill was up for Bonstderatlon. It was with dif ficulty that the younger members were forced into line. Borah, Bourne, Brown, Heybum and LaFollette voted against it. Senator Aldrich scowled right merrily when he say the revolt. Beveridge, of Indiana, kicks up once in a while; Dixon, of Montana, refuses to go along smoothly when the road does not 'suit him; William Alden Smith is not entirely amenable to dis cipline and a number of others grow refractory when they are so inclined. As a matter of fact, the young sena tors now pounce upon every oppor tunity to break. • Congress is going to become eco nomical. Senator Allison says so. He Is figuring out how to call a halt os the enormously increasing expendi tures. of the government, and how to hold down the appropriations for this session so that they will not too far outrun the revenues. As things now run with the Expro priations, the leadess.have a difficult problem before them. "It's the senate," cry the house mem bers.' They then point to the fact that the senate added about $15,000,000 to the army bill; that it added about 40 percent, to the fortifications bill; and that it added largely to the legislative, executive and judicial bill. On the other hand, it must be said that much of the pressure on senators comes from membess of the house who could not get what they wanted at their own end of the capitol. Some times house members do not want to take the responsibility of voting money that they are more than willing the senate would vote. They have their political reasons, of course. The house cannot .very well claim to be the real watchdog of the treasury at the .ex pense of the senate. The leaders now find it seemingly impossible to keep the big supply bills down.' The senate has been warned repeatedly that there is liable to be a big deficit ln'the revenues this year. The treasury is about $40,000,000 be hind. Then there is the deficit of a year ago—about $54,000,000. Before long it is expected there will be some thing like a hundred millions between the treasury situations of this find last A. that the to of or ly Ix. year. If the anti-liquor movement in the District of Columbia does not get plenty of advertising, it will not be the fault of Senator Galljnger. He got a resolution through the senate pro viding fop the printing of 1,000 extra copies of the bin to regulate the sale of intoxicating liquors to the district. Senator Gallinger explained that there was a great demand for copies of the bill. People are Interested in the movement and they want to keep well informed on all details. The ministers and anti-saloon peo ple are backing the bill with great energy. They want to stamp out the sale of liquor in the district and they have plenty of arguments to show that Washington will be ail the better for tBelr efforts—if the bill -■'(goes tb rough. '■ In a speech urging the increase of appropriation for fortifications, a Westerner, not many years in Wash ington, became very enthusiastic. "I will 'shed the last drop of my blood in defense of my country." be cried, with clenched fists raised aloft to the high heavens, "as I did a few years ago at the front in Santiago." The applause was terrific., f A prominent Georgia politician dropped into Washington to see the senator from his state the other day. After general conversation he said this: "Takin' my liquor home, now. I have my little bottle on the sideboard. WHS objected at first 'til I told her I saved about five cents on every drink. "The other nlfeht she said, 'Now Bob, you've had your drink and saved five -it's time to go to bed.' "Yes," I told her, "but I feel more than ordinarily saving tonight—I think I'll put away a quarter." centi D. andPERSONALS The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. A. A.
