The extraordinary session of congress, which has just closed, was called by President McKlnley two days aft or he took the oath of office. It met In pursu ance to this proclamation at noon March lfl. The bilef special message transmit ted by him to both houses on the opening day explained the deficiencies In the reve nues, reviewed the bond Issues of the last administration and urged congress to promptly correct existing conditions by passing a tariff bill that would supply ample revenues for the support of the government and the liquidation of the public debt. No other subject of legisla tion was mentioned In the meesage, and the tariff bill has been the all-absorbing feature of the session. The republican members of the ways and means commit tee of the preceding house had worked throughout the short session, which end ed March 4, giving hearings and prepailng the bill which was to be submitted at the extra session. Three days after the ses sion opened, the tariff bill was reported to the house by the ways and means com. mlttoe, and 13 days later (March 81) It passed the house. It went to the senate and was referrwl to the committee on finance, and the republican members of that committee spent a month and thiee days In Its consideration and In preparing the amendments which were submitted to the senate March 4. Its consideration was begun In the senate May 7, and ex actly two months later, July 7, It passed the senate with 873 amendments. The bill then went to conference, where, after a ten-day's struggle, on the 17th, a com plete agreement was reached by which the senate receded from 118 amendments, and the house from 611. The others, 243 In number, were compromised. The con ference report was adopted by the house the 19th, at the conclusion of 12 hours of continuous debate. The report was taken up In the senate the 20th, and adopted Saturday, the 24th. The tariff bill was signed by the president the same day. "Select very younggreen lima beans for canning," writes Mrs. 8. T. Horer In the August Ladles' Home Journal. "If ripe, or white, fermentation Is sure to take place unless you use a preservative which la always more or lees dangerous. Wash the beans, drain and put them un cooked Into the jar. Fill the jars to over flowing with cold water, adjust the rub bers and lay on the tops. Place straw or exoelslor In the bottom of the washboller stand the Jars on this, pour In sufficient oold water to half cover, cover the boiler, bring to boiling point and boil steadily for three hours. Take up the Jars one at a time. If they are not full add boiling water to fill, and screw on the tops as tight as possible. Stand aside over night. Next morning give the top an extra turn and put la a dark, cool plaoe to keep." Washington Letter. Washington, July 19th, HOT Speaker Reed would be more than human If he did not get a little bit swelled on account of the several open references made on the floor of the senate to his power as exercised over the houase, and the open acknowledgement on the part of the senators that he had succeeded in coercing the senate, not only In pushing the tariff bill through, but In shaping the bill Itself. These acknowledgements are among the most remarkable ever made In the senate, which has heretofore prid ed Itself on always having Its own way In all matters pertaining to legislation. The speaker of the house has always been the most powerful Individual factor In tho control of congressional legislation, but, unless these senators are badly mistaken, Speaker Keed has been more than a factor ; he has been a dictator. I think his power In this case has been greatly exaggerated. The extra session of congress that met In March Is now a part of the country's legislative history, and the tariff bill, up on which the continuation of the republi can party In power depends, Is now the law of the land. That portion of the ad ministration that Is wedded to the cur rency commission Idea Is not entirely satisfied with the work of the extra session because no such commission was authori zed, and those who wish legislation con fined to the tariff bill regard the session as having been entirely successful. What the people think of the work of the session will not be known for sometime yet, and will depend upon their experience under the workings of the new tariff. The average cl lzen is not a bitter partisan, and is always ready to say a good word for the bridge that carries him safely over rough waters regardless of the builder. If the tariff helps him he will pronounce It good, If not, he pronounce It bod and help to overthrow those responsible for It. Senator Morgan added to his reputation as a man of common sense by the manner in which he announced the abandonment of the attempt to delay a voto on the con- feience report on the tariff bill until cot ton ties and bagging were restored to a free list and the duty on white pine lumber was reduced from $2 to $ 1. He frankly stated that he would have been willing to have remained all summer and to have kept congress in session had his support been sufficient to justify a hope of final success, but not having that he did not care to have the batteries of the press concentrated upon him, and was therefore willing to vote on the report. One thing that was done while the new tariff law was before the conference com mittee Is sure to be widely commended That Is the insertion of a clause prohibit Ing the manufacturers of tobacco or cigarettes offering any sort of a prize or premium with their goods. The only pity Is that a similar law could not be made to apply to everything else, for there Is little doubt that the Introduction of lottery methods Into business, which has grown to a great evil,, 'id demoralizing in Its effects upon our people as a whole. At least one office-seeker who has re ceived an appointment is still disposed to be dissatisfied. He is constituent of repre sentative Dolllver of Iowa, to whom he wrote as follows after he was no Bled by the state department that be hud been selected as council to Trinidad : "It this government had any diplomatic relations with hell, I think I would have been selected for the consulship there. I have been asked to appear and be examined for Trinidad. I have talked with people who have been there, and I have read all I can find In books about the placo. It seems to have nothing but blazing skies above and boiling pitch beneath. It is an ante-ioom of hell." Perhap Mr.Dolliver's constituent has heard of the troublesome office-seeker who carried a note from President Grant to the secretary of state asking that ho be sent to a warm climate. Oral testimony Is now being taken in the disbarment case against John Weddet burn Co. The patent office claims to have ample proof of every charge of fraud it has made against Wedderburu Co. Tho bearings are attracting wide at tention, and there is not room in the patent office to accommodate all the patent lawyers who wish to attend. The minute the tariff bill was out of the way President McKlnley's special currency commission was fired broadside at congress. The senate paid no attention to this request for legislation before ad journing, but the house, although Speak or Ueed and other republican leaders were understood to be opposed to a cur rency commission, took up and passed the bill authorizing the appointment of such a commission. If tho senators re turn to Washington, next December, with the same Ideas on this subject that they have now, it Is extremely doubtful whether this bill will be passed by the senate. 8OMKK8.

For the last twenty-three days the aver age temperature at sun rise, as shown by tho thermometer, has been 04". Heavy rain-storms and thunder-showers causing in 1 1 phnnce In temperature, the same stifling heat continued day and night. The roads are In such bad condition that there is but little comfort In driving over them. The contractor evidently is not used to repairing rojuls, and has taken more of a job than he can handle, and the public suffer for want of good roads to travel over. Not far from fifty-five years ago we re member two weeks in nuccesslon of very similar weather to that for the last two weeks, and many tons of hay and acres of oats were lost. In those days haying was all done by hand labor, and each mower vied with tho other which could mow the cleanest and best swath. Many farmers managed to secure their hay crop before the wet, cloudy weather came on, but others were In the midst of their hay and oat harvesting, and many tons have been cut over a week, waiting for sunshine long enough to dry out the water so as to house It. There has been plenty of farm laborers, and with farm machinery and plenty of sunshine haying would be a short job. Joseph Battell Merrow, 78, died at his home. Merrow. Saturday.
