the Scotch verdict, "not proven,"

certain Senators speculated in sugar
stock while S the" character of the
sugar scheduled of the tariff bill was
in doubts on account of the difficulty
of obtaining convincing evidence on
that subject, f It is generally regret
ted, outside of? the Senate, that the
committee should have raised the
old question of the right of the Sen
ate to compel newspaper men to
give the source of-information re
ceived by them, in connection with
this investigation. No good can
come out of it; and, as Senator Hill
aptly said, much harm may.
The last concerted effort of the Re
publican Senators against the tariff
bill is now being made against the
sugar schedule; This is not because
they are so much opposed to the
sugar schedule as a matter of fact
a number of them are knowc to
favor it but f because they believe
that if they cat put sugar on the free
list enough Democrats will refuse to
vote fb? the entire bill to enable them
to defeat ; it J f But the scheme will
not work. It I is now as , certain as
anything not; jyet done can be that
democrats enqugn to make a major
ity can riot be drawn into this trap,
although the are a number of Dem
ocratic Senators who would like to
see sugar on the free list. As soon
as the sugar schedule is adopted it is
believed! that the Republicans will
agree to set a day to vote upoq the
bill, as they admit that if they can
not beat . the i sugar schedule they
cannot beat the bill.

house ate making a determine fight
to secure the j repeal of the tax on
State bank notes. The debate had
been going on all last week and will
probably continue for a week or ten
days longer, the unacted upon ap
propriation bills having been tempo
rarily laid aside. . The result is in
doubt, depending, many believe, on
the attendance when the vote is
taken. It the attendance exceeds
280 the probabilities are that repeal
will be defeated, as the largest claim
made by the friends of repeal is 140
votes. But inasmuch as those who
favor thWrepejal of the tax are more
interested in securing it than those
who oppose i are in preventing it,

Some very interesting and instruc

to this time taken a conspicuous
part in the debate, although, they
are soliqly opposed to repeal. Rep
resentative Bick, of Georgia, made
a strong aud bold speech in favor o
repeal, in, which he took the ground
that the' general government had no
right under the constitution to im
pose such a tax, and stated his be

court had flo more right to bind the

'The course of the Senators on the
other side in debating every item of
this bill deceives nobody. Their pur
pose is plain, and cannot be veiled
behind protestations of sympathy
for the various interests affected by
the ntntndments which have been
debated. With few exceptions these
interests have been trifling compared
with the tremendous interests affect-
ed by the de!ay in the passing of the
bill, and the people everywhere who
are clamoring for the settlement of
his question in order that -the busi
ness of the country may proceed,
know full well v that the Republican
party is to blame for the delay in its
enactment. The object of the Re
publicans is known of all men.
"The Republican Senators know
that the passage of the Wilson bill
will inaugurate an era of prosperity
and growth in this country and a
revival of business throughout the
and that will be disastrousto Re
publican hopes. To escape this they
wish to postpone the passage of the
bill until after the approaching elec
tions, or until a date so close to that
time as to make it impossible for the
improved conditions to be felt before
"The people are not theorizing.
They arc hungry in the midst of
plenty; they are unemployed in the
home of progress and development.
They are the victims of a condition
which is the natural result of a
policy that the Republican party is
responsible for, and the reform of
which they are now opposing by
artifice and every method of . delay

f Treat your boys as though they

If you would have your boy make
you his confidant, take an active in

too critical, and ask for his views
and opinions at all times.

Don't think that anything is good ,
enough for the boys, and -that they
don't care for nice things; halve their
rooms fixed up nicely as possible; let
them understand that they are to be
kept in order, and the results will
justify your pains.
Furnish your' boy with good

him read to and with - you. Discuss
with him what you read, and draw
out his opinions and thoughts on
the subject. Help him to think ear

Make,home a pleasant place; see
to it that the boys don't have to go
somewhere else to secure proper free

Take time to make them feel com- ;

will not want to spend their even

Pick your son's associates. See to
it that he has no friends you know
