Congress to Railroad Legisla-
WILL BE BUSY SESSION
publican Opposition to the Ship
Subsidy Steal Predicted.
Washington, NovemDier 24.-
Speed will be the ruling idea in the
House of Representatives this win-
ter and the right of tihe minority to
discuss the measures on which the
llou e is to pass will be sharply cur-
tailed in the process. Not that it
makes much difference, however, for
the House, as organized by the lhe-
publicans, is about as perfect a ma-
chine for registering the ideas of half
a dozen leaders as could well be die-
vised. Hence, there is every prom-
ise that in the three weeks before the
holidays the House will dispose of a
vast amount of legislation. All the
chairmen of important committees
arriving in town announce their
plans to have the notable measures
of the session prepared either as soon
as Congress meets or within a few
days thereafter, and in all probability
as soon as the President's message
has been read, the House will settle
to hard and continuous work. Last
year the Republicn s were proud of
passing the gold standard bill and
one or two appropriation bills before
the holiday recess. This year the
bill for the reduce tin of the war rev-
enues.taxes, the bII for the reorgani-
tion of the army, he river and har-
bor appropriation fill, the oleomarga-
rine bill, the In ian appropriation
bill and some of the appropriation
bills will probably be before the
House not later tfan the beginning
of the second week of the session.
It need not be surprising if most of
these measures h.le been sent to the
Senate before tht. holidays. With
the cloture rules in force it will be
entirely feasible fpr the house to dis-
of all these iills in two or three
ks, and thus *lear the decks for
eight or ten arge appropriation
ills that would remain to be dis-
posed of in Janu. -y and tile first half
There will, it eems, be some op-
position to the ship subsidy steal on
the Republican side, but probably
not enough to enable the Democrats
to side track t. Representative
Burton, head of he Rivers and lar-
bors Committee, ,ho is the Hlepre-
tentative from S nator Hlanna's home
city, has declare< himself against it,
saying that he d es not believe. that
it can be passed but he stands en-
tirely alone so f r in expressing this
opinion. The provisions of the bill
are, of -counf scandalous. If
adopted, it wil be adopted in the
teeth of the re of the Republican
Commissioner Navigation, who,
curiously enough is in favor of the
bill, although h report contains in
"every line facts .hat prove the pros-
perity of Ameri n shipbuilding and
disprove the n -eswsty for the bill.
He says, for intnce, that for" the
first time since e civil war the docu-
mented tonna of theUnited States
exceeds 5,000, 00 gross tons. On
.une 30,1900, merican documented
tonnage compri d 28,333 vessels of
5,164,839 tons, an increase of 300,-
000 tons ove the previous fiscal
year. British ipping now amounts
to only 14,; 1,000 gross tons,
and the tonnage of American
shipping is [thus about one-
third of that 4 the great British
Empire with it far-reaching colonies
and its splendidi sea-going traditions.
The exports 4 the United States,
for whose carrying subsidies to
American shils are so loudly de-
manded, requpe only about one-
fifth of the jorl4's tonnage, while
British import require a far greater
amount. Finily on August 15,
1900, 68 merchant steel steam ves-
sels, aggregati g 278,000 tons, and
47 naval vessels, 113,000 tons dis-

This Building and Loan Associa-
tion has been in the past a great ben-
efit to Tallahassee and has enabled a
large number of men, on small sala-
ries, to build comfortable homes for
themselves, which they could not
have otherwise done.
It is thought that the whole num-
ber of shares will be taken in a very
short time, and all who are contem-
plating subscribing should be prompt
in making their application.
Aiden Benedict's "Quo Vadis."
"Quo Vadis," is a historical play.
T- _-:11 n.... .ma.." A 4 f.nsria AuM
4XM,.,., -,-p a o t me rest, was omitte(i
in the- Hay-lPauncefote convention
and'in its place was substituted an-
other expressly prohibiting the
United States from fortifying the
canal. That is to say, the treaty
proposes that -the United States
should build the canal and leave it
free and unprotected to be seized by
the overwhelming might of Britain's
navy if trouble should ever arise be-
tween the two nations. Senator
l)avi.s discovered this fact and re-
ported to the Senate an amendment
putting the defensens" clause omitted
by Mr. Hlay back into the treaty.
Ilis advocacy of this will be sadly
missed when the instrument is taken
iqp this winter.
Commander Lucien Young, who
has charge mof the work of removing
the wreck of their Maine from iHavana
harbor has issued a circular asking
bids for the work, to be opened at
Havana at 12 o'clock noon on De-
cember 15, 1900. The use of ex-
plosives will be prohibited, and all
material pertaining to the wreck and
all accessories for the removal of the
same must he removed from the
harbor by April 1, 1901. Specifi-
cations and all available information
will be furnished upon application to
Commander Yoing. A certified
cheek for $1,000 will be rfluired to
accompany each proposal as a guar-
antee of good faith, to be returned
to the unsuccessful bidders upon the
award of the contract. The success-
ful bidder must give bond for *10,000
for faithful compliance with the
terms of the contract. It is Captain
Sigsbee's ilea that a coffer-damn
might be constructMd around the
wreck, thus affording easy means of
removing it without much work onl
the part of the divers and without
employing explosives. The removal
of the wreck is awaited with the
keenest interest for the promise it
affords of settling beyond dispute
the cause of the disaster.

Meeting of Building and Loan.
The Board of Directors of the
Building and Loan Association met4
last I'riday afternoon at the office of
the Treasurer, Mr. Geo. W. Saxon.
Several matters of importance were
traiisacted especially looking to the
closing up of the present series. The
treasurer announced that all active
shares in the Association could tbe
brought to maturity by the payment
of *17.81 per share. There was a
general disposition to close out this
series at once, by paying that amount
into the Association, and to open a
new series immediately. In discuss-
ing the question of opening a new
series, Mr. Saxon said that he thought
the present a most opportune time
for doing so as there had been num-
erous inquiries, as to when one would
be-started. He thought that we had
every reason to be encouraged over
the further outlook of Tallahassee.
That the railroad to Bainbridge was
practically assured and would 'be
running before the end of next year.
He spoke in every way most en-
couragingly of our future prospects.
After some further discussion, the
treasurer was ordered by the .direc-
tors to open the books for subscrib.-
ers to a new series. The number of
the shares of any series is limited by
the constitution to six hundred
shares. The treasurer as directed
opened his books for subscribers on
Monday, and, a large number of
shares were subscribed on the first

Washington, November 18&-The
election amide, the most important
event during the past week ha* been
the announcement of the Genus
totas for the United States a for
theaseveral States, for on thee will
be based the representation f the
States in Congress and in th elec-
toral college during the coming ten
ear. Of course the determination
of the total number of congressmen
depends entirely on Congress, which
may make it whatever it pleases.
There is however, some reaaon to
suppose that there will be an addi-
tion of about thirty members to the
House, as this is the least number
Possible that will not require the
representation of any State to be cut
down. If this number is adopted,
the total in the House will be 887
and the total electoral vote will be
477, necessary to a choice 289. Of
the increase of thirty, the New Ing-
land States will get two, the east
seven, the middle west eight, the far
west three and the south ten. This
phenomenal increase in the south was
not expected and will certainly
cause a renewal of the efforts to cut
down the representation of that sec-
tion in accordance with the number
of negro voters assumed to have
been. disqualified under illiteracy
clauses. As the Republicans have
full control of all branches of the
government at present, there will in
all probability be a bitter fight be-
fore this matter is finally decided.
The membership of the House
may be increased further by the ad-
dition of one, two or three States.
Oklahoma is the most promising
aspirant for Statehood. A(cordinig
to the census returns Oklahonia has
398,245 inhabitants, which wouldI en-
title it to two members of Congress
if it were admitted, and,. as it is cus-
tomary to admit States when they
have more people than necessary for
a Congressional district, it is safe to
assume that Oklahoma will soon be
granted Statehood. It has a larger
population than Delaware, Idaho,
Montana, Nevada, North Dakota,
Utah, Vermont or Wyoming and al-
most as large as Rhode Island or
Oregon. In fact, the population of
Montana, Nevada and Wyoming
combined is exceeded by that of Ok-
lahoma, and while these have three
members in the House and six Sena-
tors, Oklahoma has no representa-
tion in either Chamber, except a del-
egate in the House, who hus no vote.
New Mexico has nearly as many res-
sidents as a Congressional district-
193,777-and may be allowed to
enter the Union, while Arizona is
climbing upward with 122,212 in-
habitants. All three may be ad-
mitted before the election of 1904,
and if so, the following electoral col-
lege will consist of 487 votes, with
244 necessary to elect.

The purpose of the convention is
to promote union of sentiment and
effort, for the industrial upbuilding of
the South. It is sought through such
an assemblage to secure a policy that
will induce the South to manufacture
her own raw materials, on her own
soil and by her own people. It has
no selfish ends to serve, no private
interests to advance; neither has it
any class to benefit or antagonize,
but through this agency to reach
public sentiment for the advancement
of all interests and the protection of
all classes throughout our fair land.
We believe no stronger obligation
rests upon the citizen at this time,
than to seek the fulfillment of these
ends and purposes. We feel that
this should be brought home to all

seemed to want a taste. I hollered at
him and drive him off two or three

supper, and arter watching the b'ar fur
awhile she said:
"'Zeb, that b'ar wants a drink of

continued to hang around the place

The Result Moved the Philosopher
to a Discourse on Sueeess.
"Did you ever realize that the .sue-
cess that one really enjoys comes only
through hard work?" asked the philos-
opher. "I know the average mortal
would prefer to gain his ends without
hard toil. but few do. and I doubt If
those few gain any pleasure from hav-
ing the plum drop li their laps without
any effort on their part.
"I had that fact impressed upon me
only the other day. I chanced during
an idle moment to pick up an empty
ink bottle, and something started my
thoughts back to my boyhood days
when an empty bottle furnished an
Ideal mark to throw stones at. Smiling
to myself at the childishness of it, 1

On the first page of this issue
President Jacob R. Cohen pub,
lishes a call for a meeting of the
Young Meihs' Business League, to
be held at City Hall tomorrow (Fri-
day) night. The object of the meet-
ing is to rehabilitate the League,
which has been, so to speak, in a
comatos state for some time, and
take immediate action upon several
matters which require speedy ac-

The very' flattering majority we
rogeived ins" the Capital location
pfinary-when .three of the larg-
est, wealthiest and most influential
cities in the State fought for-and
would have felt honored by a plural-
ity victory-should make us feel, and
really does place us under renewed
obligations to the people as the seat
of their government. This being
true, we should leave nothing un-
done to make Tallahassee a repre-
sentative city of the wealth and wis-
dom that clusters about us and looks
hitherward for central government.
This can only be accomplished
through united-or thoroughly or-
part of the first chapter and the
reader is kgptguesing all through to
the very last chapter, as to the final
outcome. It is chaste, but so thrill-

. The Baltimore Sun, the most con-
servative newspaper in the United
States, says: "It has been and still
is the fashion of bitter partisans to
denounce Mr. Bryan as a demagogue,
as an extremist, as showy, but with-
out depth or breadth of intellect. In
every position which he has assumed
in this campaign and in every policy
he advocated he can give Jefferson,
Jackson and other great Democrats
as precedents. If in the cause he
maintained in this campaign he was
a demagogue, then Jefferson was a
demagogue. If in his opposition to
the money power he is arraying class
against class what shall be said of
Jackson and Taney in their cam-
paigns against the,banks?"
The editor of the TALLAHASSEEAN
realizes that there ae numerous people
in this section who know more about
running a newspaper than he does.
The editor has simply been a little
more daring in the matter, and has
staked his worldly affairs upon his
judgment, while those of superior
knowledge have refused to back it
with their means. To some this may
seem "a distinction without a differ-
ence," but to the man dealing in
newspaper space as his only stock in
trade it has a significance that
prompts him to follow his own ileas,
even though they call down upon
his unrighteous, head mountains of

Col. A. Pope, assistant general
passenger agent of the Seaboard Air
Line, was in the city last week. The
condition of our passenger depot was
called to his attention, and was to
him a revelation that called forth em-
phatic expressions of surprise and
disapproval. From what he said to
prominent citizens it is expected that
we will soon have a new one, or
there will be great improvements
made in the old one.
There is certainly much room for
improvement. Tallahassee has been

The first time I met her I was a re-
porter in the embryonic state and she
was a girl in short dresses. It was In
a garden surrounded by high red brick
walls which were half hidden by clus-
ters of green vines and at the base of
which nestled earth beds radiant with
Voses and poppies and peonies and
bushes of lavender lilacs, all spilling
their delicate ambrosia on the mild air
of passing May. I stood, straw hat In
hand, wondering If I had not stumbled
into some sweet prison of flower
which, having run disobedient ways In
the past, had been placed here by Flo-
ra -and forever denied their native
meadows and wildernesses. And this
vision of fresh youth In my path, per-
haps she was some guardian nymph. I
was only 22,. a most Impressionable
age. Her hair was like that rare Oe-
tober brown, half dun, half gold; her
eyes were cool and restful, like the
brown pools one iees in the heart of
the forests, and her lips and cheeks
cozened the warm vermilion of the
rose which lay ever so lightly on the
bosom of her white dress. Close at
hand was a table upon which stood a
pitcher of lemonade. She was holding
in her hand an empty glass. As my
eyes encountered her calm, Inquiring
gaze my courage fled precipitately,!
likewise the object of my errand.
There was a pause; diffidence and em-'
barrassment on my side, placidity on'
"Well, sir?" said she in a voice the;
tone of which implied that she could '
readily understand her presence in the
garden, but not mine.
As I remember it. I was suddenly
seized with a great thir.t. "I should
like a glass of your lenijnad'." I an-
swered. bravely laying down !hhe only
piece of money I possess"ed. Ilr s.'rn
lips parted in a smile. amnd my e:::rg:;

by degrees. She filled a glass for me.
and as I gulped it down I could al-
most detect the flavor of lemon and
"It is very good." I volunteered, pass-
Ing back the glass. I held out my
"There isn't any change." coolly.
I flushed painfully. It was fully four
miles to Newspaper row. I was con-
scious of a sullen pride. Presently the
object of my errand returned. Some-
what down the path I saw a gentleman
reclining in a canvas swing. "Is that
Mr. Wentworth?" I asked.
"Yes. Do you wish to speak to him?
Uncle Bob. here is a gentleman who
desires to speak to you."
I approached. "Mr. Wentworth," I
began, cracking the straw in my hat.
"my name is John Winthrop. I amn a
reporter. I have-called to see if it is true
that you have declined the Italian port-
"It is true." he replied kindly. "There
are any number of reasons for. my de-
clining it. but I cannot make them pub-
lic. Is that all?"
"Yes, sir; thank you," and I backed
"Are you a reporter?" asked the girl
as I was about to pass by her.
"Yes, I am."
"Do you draw pictures?"
"No, I do not"
"Do you write novels?"
"No." with a nervous laugh.
There is nothing like the process of
interrogation to make one person lose
interest in another.
"Oh, I thought perhaps you did," she
said and turned her back to me. I
passed through the darkened halls of
the house and into the street. I never
expected to see her again, but it was
otherwise ordained. We came together
three years later at Block Island. She
was IS now. gathering the rosy flowers
of her lir:t season. She reicmlbt'red

appealed to my poetic instinct. Per-
haps that was the cause of it all. And
then she was very beautifuL In the
autumn of that year we became great
friends, and through her influence I
began to see beyond the portals of the
mansions of the rich. Matthew Prior's
Chloes and Sir John Suckling's Euphe-
has lost their charms. Henceforth my
muse's name became Phyllis. I took
her to, the opera when I didn't know
where I was going to breakfast on the
morrow. I sent her roses and went
without tobacco, a privation of which
woman knows nothing. Often I was
plunged Into despair at my distressed
ckdruewasce" Money to her meant
something to spend; to me it meant
something to get. Her income bother-
ed her because she could not spend it;
my income was mortgaged a week in
ad-ance and did not bother me at all.
This was the barrier at my lips. But
her woman's intuition must have told
her that she was a part and parcel of

tal antipathy to my side of the family.
When my mother, his sister, married
Alfred Winthrop in 1859. at the time
when the north and south were ap-
proaching the precipice of a civil war,
he considered all family ties obliterat-
ed. We never worried much about it.
When mother died. he softened to the
extent of being present at the funeral.
He took small notice of my father, but
offered to adopt me if I would assume
his name. I clasped my father's hand
in mine and said nothing. The old

in and said that there were yet a col-
umn and a half to fill and that the
foreman wanted to "close up the page
early." The true cause of my Indispo-
sition was due to the rumors rife in the
office that morning. Rumors which
emanate from the managing editor's
room are usually of the sort which bur-
den the subordinate ones with anxiety.
The London correspondent was "going
to pieces." He had cabled that he was
suffering from nervous prostration,
supplementing a request for a two
months' leave of absence. For "nerv-
ous prostration" we read "drink." Our
London correspondent was a brilliant
journalist. He had written one or two
clever books. He had it broad knowl-
edge of men an.dl affairs, and his pen
was one of those which ti.shed; a-i

which unsettled me. .1 was perfectly
satisfied with New York. Phyllis lived
in New York. There would be time
enough for London when we were mar-

he thoughtlessly builds on the sand
when the tide Is out. Yes; foreign cor-

mused, with Phyllis at my side. With
her as my wife I should have the envy
of all my fellow craftsmen. We should
dine at the embassies, and the attaches

The Tampa Herald wants it dis-
tinctly understood, and it is right in
the position it assumes, that it is in

it is used. The understanding was

wanted the capital moved, but as
that will niot be, let us have a build-
ing that will not be incommodious
and unfit for the use of the Legisla-.
