had no right to vote. Chairman Maloney
said the point was well taken, aud the dele

Perhaps our judgment has beeu at fault
but we have not considered tlie rougres

wee met 1 to us all along that (ien. Urout
would be returned, and that it will he wine
for the district to return him. The position
he holds and the itillueuce he wields iu the
House Hie of great importance, too great
indeed to le lightly surrendered by our
state As chairman of the committee ou
the District of Columbia hu it Krfiriniug
valuable service to the country, ami that
he comes up to the requirement no one
doubts. His lalsirs are arduous and con
tinued, aud by virtue of his pmitiun and
his industry und ability he is one of the
comparatively few tncinlcrs of the Houe
who are listened to. He is alwajsathis
jHHt of duty, and it is very well known has
the ear of the speaker We see nothing in
the cauvant. thus far that leads us to think
that a change is desirable or likely to prove
advantageous in any way.

You may talk atoiit the glory
Of the cause that you fought for:
Hut there's nothing so pathetic
As the lesson we recelte

Of the useless empty steete.
You may talk uUut the t.:arvlns,
The scant rut ions and "hanl tack;M
Of '"the last drop In the canteen,"
And "the empty haversack. "
There's nothing so com hieing lu

As the mute aud speecideHM retsud
Of the useless empty sleeve.

Hut their horrors could not lat;
Of the mar and din of luittle.
And thank (Jod that, too, has past.

Evert morn and noon and eve.

Of the useless empty sleeve.
