Speaker Cannon and the Publisher.
IW this time it should be pret
ty plain to the newspaper and

can by any means prevent it.
Speaker Cannon does not mean
to permit any "meddling" with
the tariff on wood pulp, pulpwood
or paper. Various secretaries to
representatives and senators es
timate that during the past
month or six Aveeks ten thousand
letters and telegrams relating to
the tariir on paper and paper ma
terials have been received by
members of congress in both
branches. Only recently a new
deluge of telegrams poured into
the house; each member receiv
ing such a message walked sol
emnly to the desk of Mr. Payne
and dejtosited thereon the yellow
slip, while a wire from E. H.
I taker, secretary of the Ameri
can Newspaper I'ublishers' Asso
ciation, sent to John Sharp Wil
liams, was filed with the follow
"I respectfully petition the con
gress of the I'nited States to grant
the recjuest of the Newspaper Puh
lishers' Association in telegram
Secretary Baker's telegram
' The American Newspaper Pub
lishers' Association, in convention
assembled, protests against the sub
terfuge designed by Cannon, Payne
and Dalell to prevent relief from
the extortions of the paper com
bine. We ask that the Stevens
bill, now throttled in the Ways and
Means committee, be put to a vote
on the floor of the house. We re
piesent the seventh largest indus
try in the United States, and have
rights that congress is bound to re
spect." Hut the only effect created by
the thousands of wires and let
ters has been to arouse Mr.t Payne
and Speaker Cannon to wrath
against the petitioners noted
above. Mr. Payne, on the floor
of the house said:
"When we put through an anti
pass law these fellows came down
here and begged to be exempted
from its operations. They failed
then, and I thiuk they will fail now
to establish their light to special
legislation, instead ot waiting with
all other American citizens for gen
eral tariff legislation to be enacted
for the lenefit of all alike."
Speaker Cannon, according to
all reports, became exceedingly
wroth over the idea that anybody
or any organization should pre
sume to request that the house,
under the speaker's permission,
do anything. In fact, the speak
er showed his anger so plainly as
to give the impression that the
publishers and others who have
been jogging congress memory
in regard to paper and the paper
trust have thereby hurt the cause
they sought to advance. The
speaker referred to the special
committee he has named to in
vestigato the paper situation, and
intimated that members of the
various publishers' associations
who have been memorializing
congress of late may be haled by
the scut! of the neck before the
committee and made to tell all
they know altout the situation.
From the stand that such indivi
duals and organizations have been
taking, it does not seem likely
that the speaker will be forced
to adopt any such strenuous
means; appearances would seem
to indicate that force would have
to be exerted to keep such gen
tlemen away from the meetings
of the special committee.

Selfishness is one great cause ot
lonliness. If a man builds walls
around himself, so that he may
keep all that he has to himself, he
soon finds that he has built walls
around himself which shut out all
that might come in to him lrom
others. So the cure ot lonliness
may be the overcoming of selfish
ness. The medicines lor this dis
ease of loneliness are potions ot
generosity, ot thoughtfulness for
others, of self sacrifice, taken in
large doses. Even when the lone
liness comes from the bitterness of
loss and sorrow, forgetting self, go
ing out of self and doing for others,
is the only cure that God has given
on earth for its healing. Sunday

How cold-storage eggs are fresh
ened and the very simple manner
in which it is done is vouched lor
by an engineer on the Pennsylvan
ia railroad. The process of rejuve
nating such eggs may be unique
and somewhat expensive, but the
difference in price between storage
eggs and those branded "fresh" j
warrants the undertaking. A lew
nights ago this engineer, acting un
der orders, hauled an entire car
load of eggs taken out of a local
cold storage house to Elizabeth-
town, a short distance this side of
Lancaster. A few hours standing
in the car on the siding of the Lan
caster county town was all that was
necessary, and the same engineer
brought back the identical car and
the identical eggs marked in blaz
