AFTER THE BALL IS OVER
CPCIDEISTS ATTEKDI5Q CLOSEtO OF
THE SESSIOX OP CONGRESS.
Everything Tinted With Partisan.
Politic Marie IIbbbb as a Debater
Ton cue and tke Pioneers.
"WASHINGTON, June 6. The closing
days of the session of Congress have been
devoted largely to politics. There "was
politics In the Senate and politics In the
House. Campaign speeches were being
made on every hand. This, of course, was
natural, as these campaign speeches can
be reprinted and franked all over ths
country at Government expense. That
was -what most of them, -were made for.
If the franking privilege could be repealed,
there -would probably be much less talking
in the United States Senate, because the
very fact that these speeches can be sent
ell over the country -without the payment
of postage offers an Inducement for them
to be made. There Is, of course, a great
deal of pressing legislation in the closing
days of a session, and every Senator and
Representative is trying to get through
something of interest to his own state
and community. This is more apparent
In the Senate than In the House, as the
House offers no place to put In this legis
lation, except the clamor for unanimous
consent, which does noi mean very much.
In the first place a member has got to
snake his arrangements with the Speaker'
of the House before he can be recognized
for unanimous consent, and then he has
got to have every member of the House
fixed or favorable to his proposition, be-'
cause a single objection will knock him J
out. The Senate offers a way of securing
this legislation by amendments to appro
priation bills, and every Dill during the
closing days of a session is loaded down
with all sorts of legislation which has no
place upon it, and whlcn would be subject
to all kinds of points of order If these
joints of order were made. But the
(Senate is an easy-going body, and points
of order are only made to legislation which
is objected to by somebody and objected
to very vigorously.
Bad Blood Sometimes.
It Is In these closing days of Congress
also that bad blood develops, especially in
the Senate. If a man tried to get some
pet measure on an appropriation bill, and
it Is knocked out on a point of order, he
Immediately follows this up with points
of order against other legislation, and
there is usually a hornets' nest started,
and Senators say and do some very vicious
things. Then when politics are to be
played, as they are at the close of each
session, an effort is made to counteract the
effect of one politician by something which
another will inject into the debate. In
the closing days of this Congress the
Democrats talked a great deal, criticising
with severity the Administration and
everything connected with it. There
have a great many things been done by
subordinates of the present Administration
which give the opposition an opportunity
to severely arraign the entire Government.
This is more particularly in relation to the
appointees, the action of the appointees of
the Administration where they have been
guilty or alleged to be guilty of miscon
duct. Of course, the Republicans can
retort by pointing out that the Democrats
are simply playing for political capital,
and, so far as the talk on the Phllllpples
is concerned, they can also show that the
expansion Issue being objected to by the
Democrats is made one of the many
things which Is being injected into the
debate for political effect. All this cre
ates more or less bad feeling, and the
usual good temper whicn prevails In the
Senate has been absent during the closing
week of the session.
The efforts on the part of a number of
Senators to secure the payment of long
standing claims, as well as the new
claims which were the result of the Span
ish war, caused a great deal of 111 feeling
among the Senators and also considerable
bitterness against the appropriations com
mittee, which refused to pay or provide
for the payment and settlement of these
claims. As a matter of fact, these claims
should not be placed upon appropriation
bills, but ever' Senator looking out for
the interests of his state endeavors to
cave them considered In some manner,
and about the only way they can be con
sidered Is to have them placed upon ap
propriation bills. It Is true that the Sen
ate in the last Congress prepared and
passed an omnibus claims bill, but that
left out a great many of the old "war
claims, which are always hanging up and
are being pressed fowrard on every occa
elon. The House refuses to consider these
claims, and Senators In desperation try to
have them put on the appropriation bills.
They are smbject to points of order, and
are usually lost on that account, but
often if they are put on the appropria
tion bills the conferees of the House will
not agree to them, and they are almost
always lost In the shuffle somewhere.
There Is an opportunity for Senators to
make Just a little political capital for
themselves in pushing these claims and
standing by them for the rights of the
states, The trouble is, very few people
know whether the claims are just or not.
Nearly all of the leading Republicans Jn
"Washington have been quite busily en
gaged In making platforms during the
closing days of the passion. Those mem
bers of the House and Senate who expect
to participate In the convention, and even
thoss who do not, have various planks
which they propo to offer or have of
fered for the 'purpose of constructing a
Republican platform to go before the peo
ple on in the coming campaign. There
has been a report that the platform will
be constructed in Washington before It
Is taken over to Philadelphia. Tins to a
certain extent may be true. It Is probable
that various planks will be prepared and
submitted to President McKlnley and to
his close friends here, and their Judgment

platform, and it is also political that 3jo -
provision can be lncrted in the platforj
against the wish of the Administrates.-
which Is to be nominated at Philadelphia-
And, more than that, there Is no deefte
on the part of the Republicans to har"
anything done that is not In harmony
wlth the wishes of the Administration.
"Will See Speeclies Alao.
Tho resident will also see the speeches
of the temporary and permanent presid
ing officers of the convention. This would
not bo the case in a convention where a
new candidate was to be chosen, but when
it Is a foregone conclusion that one man
is to be selected, It is usual to allow him
to have something to say about what the
speeches sounding the keynote of the cam
palgn shail contain. It Is not likely that
the speeches of either Wolcott or Lodge .
will be dictated In any degree by the"
President. but after he reads them over,
if there is something that is regarded as
a discordant note, he will no doubt sug
gest that It be eliminated. Usually the
National committee takes charge of these
matters, and generally knows pretty well
what Is going to be said by the men who
arc to preside over the conventions, even
If the nomination of the candidate is very
Lmuch in doubt. The fact that the tem-
torary chairman, as well as the perroa-
?nt chairman, are organs of the conven-
and stand for the-party, makes It
necessary that they say nothing to cause
discredit or 111 feeling, or to evoke criti
cism In anything that may subsequently
Dewey on Expansion.
On a recent occasion. Representative
Tongue was introduced to Admiral Dew
ey, and had a long conversation with
the hero of Manila on topics generally,
and expansion in particular. Mr. Tongue
sDeaking of the Incident, said: "I wasi
very much surprised to find the ad-alral.J'Plaln Dealer.
very much surprised to find the Admiral
so well preserved. But for his gray hair,
he could easily pass for a man of 40. I
-was forcibly struck by the lack of re
semblance between the real man and the
pictures we have become so familiar
with. As a matter of fact, I have never
seen a picture that looks just like Dewey.
I had a most pleasant talk with him,
and Instead of finding him reserved, he
proved to be ont of the most Boclable
and .hearty men I have ever had the
pleasure of meeting. His conversation
Is bright, quick, and really attractive.
In fact he Is a veritable chatter-box.
Don't Infer from that that I think him
a prattler, for when he says anything It
Is well worth listening to, and he talks
only on matters of Interest. Before we
parted I brought the question of expan
sion into the conversation, and asked him
what he thought was the direct effect of
the Battle of Manila Bay on the Pacific
Coast. At this question his eyes sparkled,
and It was easy to see that the effects
of that great victory brought pleasant
recollections to his mind, and I am con
vinced from his eager and enthusiastic
manner that he thinks the acquisition of
the Philippine Islands is one of the great
strides of the century, although he doe3
not view the situation egotistically, but
rather in the broad sense. 'Why,' said
he, 'have you noticed the wonderful
growth of commerce on the Coast since
Boat The Doctor has taken to rowing.
Mies Yacht What oar does he pull?
Boat The scull.
we acquired those Islands? It is wonder
ful, and, best of all. It will keep growing.
There Is no question as to Dewey's views
on the subject of expansion, and any one
that classes him with Bryan on that issue
knows very little of his own firm, opin
ions." Hanna In Debate.
The fact that Senator Hanna did not
enter into the debates of the- Senate in
duced many Senators and others to be
lieve that he had not the ncrvo to take
the floor among so many brilliant de
baters, but all of a sudden, when the armor-plate
provision was bemg discussed
In the Senate, Mr. Hanna could not re
sist any longer, and took the floor to
voice his sentiments. His argument was
a surprise to all who heard him. He
showed clearly that he has plenty of self
possession, and that as a debater he Is
ready to meet all comers. The fact that
it was his maiden effort brought the ag
gressive Tillman to his feet several times,
and he piled the Ohio Senator with sharp
questions, but the bright, ready retorts
forced him to retire, without having mud
dle Senator Hanna, as he had expected
to 40. As a muddler, Tillman is gen
erally looked upon as a great success,
for he has a way of suddenly Injecting
veasy cutting criticisms or pointed ques
tions', that make the average Senator stop
to think. Not so with Hanna, who had
a ready answer every time. Another In
tcrjecter of 6ome note in his way is Sena
tor Allen, end he, too, thought to lnterupt
Senator tHanna. But it Is a remarkable
fact of late that whenever Allen, In his
sarcastic way, seeks to ridicule some fel
low Senator, he always has the tables
turned, and he is made the laughing stock
of the Senate, rather than the man he
attacks. On this occasion he asked Sena
tor Hanna If he had ever manufactured
armor-plate, and was immediately an
swered in the negative. "I mean outside
of political armor-plate," persisted Allen.
"No, sir." quickly replied Hanna, "but I
have found my political armor-plate In
vulnerable." At this the Senate indulged
In a good, hearts laugh, a rare occurrence
kin that body, and the Nebraska Senator
sank into his seat. Senator Hanna had
conquered in his first fight.
Tonirae nnd the Pioneers.
It will be -recalled that in Representa
tive Tongue's address before the pension
committee in support of the Indian "War
Veteran bill, he called attention to tho
(act that the early pioneers who had
gone into the Pacific Northwest had saved
.ihat section to the United States through
"tftelr own personal efforts, and had never
receivea any asisiance irom me uniieu
States, nor later any recognition for their
noble work. "When the remarks were
printed. Mr. Tongue forwarded a copy to
Governor Roosevelt, of New York, as he
knew the "Rough Rider" was preparing
a new volume, on "The Winning of the
Wt," In which he would deal with the
Oregon pioneers, and invited his attention
to that feature of the address. A few
days later Mr. Tongue received a letter
from Governor Roosevelt, in which, after
explaining his thorough familiarity with
the "West, he said: "Yes. I Intend to de
vote much of one of my next volumes to
Oregon matter. I agree, absolutely with
your view Oregon and ""Washington are
now states of the Union instead of prov
inces of Canada solely because the West
ern pioneers, unaided by tho Government,
went out there and settled in the Valley
of the Columbia, and afterwnrds on Puget
Sound. The least that could be done by
the Government was to lighten as far
as possible as might be the nearly intol
erable hardships they had to endure, and
after all this had been done, the fact re
mains that the United States was in debt
to them much more than they to the
United States." Mr. Tongue will use this
letter in furthering the passage of his bill,
and feels highly elated to know that so
prominent a man as Governor Roosevelt,
possibly a future President, sympathizes
with tho Oregon pioneers.

How the Boers Charged.
A Boer charge Is destitute of hurrah
and dash. There is no alignment, and
little semblance of concerted action. Tet
the concerted action is there. Having
been broadly instructed by their com
mandants as to the general object and
plan of the movement, the Boers start,
moving rapidly enough while at long
range, yet cautiously, too. To conceal
himself behind what, to the ordinary man,
would seem ridiculously Inadequate cover,
is an Instinct with the Boer, born of the
veldt and its ways. Thus, running in a
crouching attitude, and keeping out of
sight'as much as possible, the thin, widely
scattered line moves forward until a
point is reached within effective rifle
range of the enemy. Then the real attack
AND 174 FIRST STREET
begins, and the peculiar methods of the
Boer begin to operate.
It will not be a movement of the whole
line, but only of a small segment. The
rest of the line will support It. A certain
number of men in each commando,
amounting to probably one-fourth, had
been told off before the attack began, to
hold cover when rushes were made, and
concentrate their fire upon the enemy.
Thesa men He securely sheltered.' their
ready rifles at shoulder and pointed, their
watchful eyes scanning the positions of
the defenders. The signal Is given and
the rush begins.
Up spring E0 or 100 men, with rifles held
loosely at a "trail," and dash forward at
full speed, leaping over the ground like
Zulu runners. A few scattering shots
give warning of the hotter lire to come.
Prone on the earth go the charging Boers.
".'r-r rash! comes the volley. Up again
and a wild scurry on for half a minute
before the second volley can come, then
down again, each man under cover. Fifty
yards have been gained. To see a body
of men spring up suddenly and dash
toward them Is calculated to flurry any
troops. The Boers have counted upon
this, and for It the reserved marksmen
are prepared. Startled for a moment out
of his presence of mind, or In his eagerness-
to get a fair shot. Tommy Atkins
will expose himself. A head, a shoulder,
an arm or leg shows. It is a- sufficient
mark for a Boer. The Mausers yelp In
a stammering chorus, and a score of gen
tlemen in khaki grope blindly about In
the dirt and gravel.
So Shnlccspere, London Sinsingr
Teacher, Has Been Called.
In the current issue of The Musician, a.
writer using the signature "F. H. T."
writes a retrospective account of William
Shakespeare's "remarkable" tour in
America. It is not our business to haz
ard any guess as to the identity of "F. H.
T.," but It Is evident that he is a parti
san of Mr. Shakespeare, else he could not
attempt to paint that gentleman's Ameri
can tour as a successful venture. It is
true enough that he made some money;
but it was a small exchange for bis
10S3 of prestige in America. "F, H. T."
suggests that the places in which Mr.
Shakespeare was engaged for lecture-recitals
might be called the ones which best
appreciate serious musical study; and
counts it their misfortune that Boston,
Philadelphia and Cincinnati cannot ba
mentioned In the list. We are Inclined to
the Idea that these last-named cities are
to be congratulated for their shrewdness;
for, learning from the unbia92d press that
Mr. Shakespeare was a dismal failure In
New York, they were content to let him
return to London without carrying away
any of their coin. Mr. Shakespeare proved
himself to be a money-grabber of a most
pronounced type, while he was with us.
He did not deem It undignified to stand
with pencil and paper In hand at the close
of his lecture In interior cities, opportun
ing those present to engage private lee
sons (at $20 per hour). The press of the
country was almost unanimous In voting
hl3 lecture-recitals disappointing, and his
own singing was recognized by all compe
tent judges as execrable. It Is not true
to the facts to allude to his American
tour as successful. If he, himself, be
lieves It to have been so. let him como
again and be disillusioned. The Concert
Goer. Onions MnUe You Sleep.
One of the best and simplest, cures for
insomnia is said to be the odor of raw on
ions. Thev should be mashed to a pulp tn
order to free all the juice. Smell this sub
stance for 10 minutes after retiring. It 13
said to quiet the most nervous person and
relax the most overwrougnt nerves.
Onions contain a form, of opium. This
glve3 them soporific qualities. The smell
after a little while ceases to be obnoxious.
People who are exceedingly sensitive to
odors will feel no unpleasant effects. It
will not induce headaches or nausea, as
might be supposed. A gentle lethargy
steals over the person heroic enough to try
this means of wooing slumber. The senses
becoma- dull, the nerves weaken and rest
ful sjeep follows.
The medical properties of onions are well
known. One eaten raw every night just
before retiring, for a month in the Spring,
13 recommended to produce a clear, fresh
complexion. An onion plaster will relievo
hoarseness and inflammation. Raw onions
mashed and applied as a poultice to the
throat will relieve sore throat. The same
poultice on the chest Is effective in oases
of bronchitis and where there Is soreness
In the lungs.
Cholly The boys are saying you offered
yourself to Miss Quickstep and she refused
Algy Offered myself? It isn't true. I
told her that If she was keen to get
married X was willing. She said she
wasn't, and I said all right It didn't
make much difference anyway. That's all
there is In that story. Chicago Tribune.
