(Special to The Caucasian.)
Washington, D. C, Feb. 21, 1911.
President Taft is still strongly urg

law creating and strengthening the
permanent tariff board, and threatens
to call an extra session of Congress

there are now pending in Congress
ten great appropriation bills which

The Lorimer Case.
It looks as If a vote might be tak

whether or not Senator Lorimer is
entitled to his seat, on to-morrow or
at some early date during the present

thought that Senator Lorimer would

Postal Savings Banks a Success.
Postmaster-General Hitchcock has
made a preliminary report, or rather
a statement, as to the success of the
experiment of the system of postal
savings banks recently established
under authority of Congress. He
points out the fact that the major
ity of the deposits are being made by
people who have never before had an
account in a savings bank or any
other bank, and who have therefore
never systematically saved the dimes
and pennies. He states that the op
erations of the system so far guaran
tee that it will be a great success, and
shows that it will teach a "certain
class of our people who have practi
cally lived from hand to mouth how
to save and become substantial citi
zens with a stake in the country, and
other arguments to a similar effect.
These statements made by Postmaster-General
Hitchcock, as results
from practical experience, are some
of the very things which former Sen
ator Butler of North Carolina prophe
sied would result from the establish
ment of . such - a system, and which
were included in the report made on
his postal savings bank bill, the first
bill on which Congress ever mde a
favorable report. r
A Great Educator Honored.
Last week Count Apponyl, of Hun
gary, was accorded ah unusual honor
by the United States House of Repre
sentatives. He was Invited to ad
dress the House' In session. This is,
we think, the third time that such an
honor has been conferred upon any
man in the history of the United
States. -' ; '-;-v,v,; :.;
Count Apponyl has been not only
one of the most distinguished public
officials in Hungary, being bv birth

Upper House of the Congress of Hun

In the Lower House and who was
elected and served as Speaker of the
Hungarian House of Representatives.

the Cabinet as Minister of Educa
