MURDOCK SAYS HIS CONFESSION SHOWS WEAK SPOT By Victor Murdock Congressman From Kansas and Leader of the Progressives in the House of Representatives. WASIII N'C»T( >\\ I) C., July 3.—The confession <>f Col. Mulhall has furnished »l«-tails and proofs confirming a charge, long made and generally believed, that congress been more or lcs* under the influence of sj»e( ial privilege. The Mulhall confession shows special privilege has been organized to secure special representatives in congress for the defeat of special legislation. The sensation in the Mulhall exposure consists in its detail and its wealth of documentary proofs. It is enlightening to many also a> to the widespread char acter of this lobby's operations. It has long been known that members who served spe cial privilege were selected by special privilege. It was assumed, however, that such help was received in a casual and sporadic way. This exposure shows special privilege has been or ganized on a national scale, drawing from an almost un limited expense fund and working secretly for the politi cal extermination of congressmen daring to serve the people and for the political aggrandizement of con gressmen willing to serve special privilege. It is inijKirtant that this matter should not pass as the newspaper sensation of a day. It is something more than that. It is a revelation a* to what representative government may become when it is too far removed from the direct influ ence of the people It is a revelation as to the imperative need for more popular government. Members must be more directly subject to the control of their people. We must have more of the direct primary and more of the recall; qtherwise the form of government which we call a republic and which contains a congress for the service of special privilege is a failure. I repeat we must not forget the lesson in the mere sen sation of this startling and most interesting revelation.

The new store will be known as "Bouck aert's," and an entertaining feature will be music every evening, furnished by the Bierman orchestra.
