Washington, Jan. 22nd, 1886
Although the present session of Con
gress began quietly, proceedings at the
Capitol became more animated with
each week. In the Senate there has
been an immense amount of oratory on
the silver question from Democrat
who felt constrained, to differ from
the President and advocate continued
The majority in the House of Repre
sentatives, coerced by the contingency
of possible Republican restoration be
fore 1888, adopted the measuie they
once rejected, and now the Hoar Presi
dential succession bill is ready for the
President's signature. The first divi
sion of the session on party lines, took
place over this bill, leading to a little
filibustering and several roll calls.
The opinion prevails among public
men of all political shades that the
present session will be the liveliest for
many 3 ears, although it may not be
marked by much legislation beyond its
appropriation bills. It is thought there
no chance of the House and Senate
agreeing to any general tariff bill, and
on all questions of currency and coin
age there is great diversity of opinion
in both parties.
Some of the ablest leaders of the Re
publican party are in the Senate and as
the Republicans retain control of that
body, they will protect and promote the
interests of the party. Still it will be
almost impossible for any measure, of
a distinctively party character, to be
come a law during the life of the Forty
Ninth Congress. The Democratic ma
jority in the House, and the Republic
an majority in tne Senate each stands
as an effective bar to party legislation.
There can be no bargain, no com
promise, no agreement or arrangement
by which an\ bill intended merely to
carry out the pledges of a campaign
platform, and manufacture political
capital can escape defeat. The most
inexperienced new Member Knows this
as well as the veteran Member, and the
country knows it so thoroughly that it
will not be disposed to tolerate a waste
of time in attempts at the impossible.
For this reason the Democrats, who are
getting ready to agitate certain ques
tions that promise no practical results,
have been admomsbed to let them
alone, and take up subjects on which
both parties can agree.
In a Senatorial Republican caucus,
the relations between the Piesident ind
Senate were discussed, and the ac
tion to be taken upon his nominations
in cases of suspension,and particularly,
the course to be pursued in regard to
obtaining explanations for removals
and appointments. It was practically
decided that if-the President and heads
of Departments do not produce the re
quired mfoi ination, the nominations
are to be sheh ed for the present. "We
can stand it as long as the President
can," said one of the Senators, "and if
theie is a dead-lock, we are prepared
Notwithstanding all that has been
said and written on the subject of Civil
Service appointments, the pressure for
office i as great now as it has ever
been Office seekers pay no attention
to what is said to them by their Con
gressional friends, ana refuse to believe
that the hands of Congress are in any
way tied by the Civil Service law.
Some of them refuse to take "no" for
an answer, and continue to harass their
indorsers day and night.
Senators have been discussing Nepot
ism in connection with the Judicial
Salary bill. One section of the bill
provides that no person related within
the degree of first cousin to a Judge of
the United States shall be appointed
by such Judge to any position in his
court, and it also legislates out of of
fice the relations now in. Senator Ed
munds thought it would work great
hardship and injustice to legislate out
ot office men who by experience and
training, had perhaps come to be the
most capable and efficient persons who
could be found to fill the offices. If so
much was said of a Judge who had ap
pointed kinsmen to office, he thought
Senators should remember that they
had provided for their own sons and
other relatives in the same way. "Even
this reform Administration, continued
the Senator from Vermont"this re
form Administration, the picture of
purity and grace, and everything that
is lovely,has sent to the Senate for con
firmation the nominations of a father
and son to the same place, to exercise
the functions of two offices, the one un
der the other."

1 Why do Doctors Prescribe Liquors?
Because they know not what else to
do or because sometimes a little liquor
serves to kindle the exhausted fires of
digestion. But this liquor prescription
is bad business for the patients, for it
makes drunkards out of a large majori
ty for them. Brown's Iron Bitters does
not kindle a temporary fire. It
nourishes, enriches, strengthens, puri
fies. It drives out debility and dyspep
sia, and sets the invigorated system at
work on a basis of health.
Mankato Free Pres: -The attempt
now be.og made in the House of Re
presentatives to prohibit foreigners
from securing title to or owning lands
in the United States, may seem some
what out of accord with that spirit of
liberty tor wh ch our forefathers fought
and bled, and contrary to the hospita
ble invitations thev sent out for all peo
ple to come in and partake, but it is a
timely attempt to shake off that which
has become a veritable nuis mce. if not
a perfect load stone to our agricultural
development. The idea of the founders
of the American republic was* that of
mutual benefit and not personal agran
dizement. The object was to add bona
fide citizens to their number to aid in
subdueing and utilizing the wild free
land they had adopted. Bui this aim
has been abused to an alarming extent,
by syndicates of foreign capitalists who
come and take into their oppulent
maws large tracts of our best lands at
the low and easy prices placed upon it
bv the goverment, that her own poor
people might acquire homes, and then
hold the same at extortionate prices,
thereby verily bleeding those who may
see fit to purchase of them, and then
hieing the capital away to foreign lands
instead of applving it the the develop
ment of the localities they speculate in.
These lands lie wild and waste for
years, at times, actually retarding the
settlement of the country, and havino
the value yearly increased by, the
provements being made by hard work
ing citizens in adjoining localities. The
scheme uas gone atar enough and the
ends of our country would be wiseh'
subserved if a stop*could be put to it.
