Adams declared the legislation to be sin:i)ly a movement to provide -work for mints. The idea that small coins were needed in California Avos ridiculons. "Why," he shouted, to the gre.-it amusement of tnember.s, "you can't even buy a drink- out there, and I have been there, for les.s than tv>o bits."  "Oh. -well," retorted K.nhn of California, "iiiiliidolphia is siovi-; v.-e nev-have liocu able tii rret small coins out there." This turned the laugh ou Adams.  Sliacklcrord Objpots to tbe ''Czar."  Shaekicford of Missouri took occasion to ilenounce the rules of the house and the "despotic and absolute power of ^,he- spe;ikcr." Shackleford expre.«sed great jiersonal admiration and effeetlua for Speaker Cannon, but tiiere was. he said, no man In EurDpe more absolute in his .iurisdiction. He had read only the other day that the speaker had "I'laclied" the ways and means committee v.ith ton men who would "stand-pat" as men of stone cgainst any aiul every attempt to amerid the tariti'. Tliis Shackleford accepted as true, and complained bitterly. If the "stand-patters" would come out In the ojien, lie declared, it would be found tiiey had not a corporal's guard. Another instance of the "absolutism" of the spcaicer was in the passage of the stateiiood bill.  Pure Food Bill in the House.  After a conference lasting for more than eight hours the house commlttce •on interstate and foreign commerce •iigreed on a pure food bill which will •be favorably reported to the house. In many respei.-ts it is like the Heyburn bill passed by the senate, and the committee agreed to let it have the namo end number of that measure, luit amended it by adding some provisions of the Heyburn hill and suggestions of members of the house committee. Only three members of the committee, Rcp-resent.ative Adamson of Georgia, Bart-lett of Georgia and Russell of Texas opposed the bill, on the ground that the measure is an assumption of the police powers of the state by the national government.  had been begun against individuals iu corporations recently found guilty by the supreme court of violating the antitrust law.

The German delegates show dist-ontent with the decision to take U]) tlic police question before the bank question is completed. There is no indication that they will refuse to proceed, but tho conferrees expect dilatory tactics. The Germans ask for time to secure further instructions, and the other delegates are showing impatience at tho delays. The Germans Intimate that things are being rushed, and say that they do not intend being pushed. They are counting upon France losing patience and makmg a false step which would throw the onus of a rupture up. on France.

A^'S^tion" w^s^'ldopt^ | est accounts were awaiting a further asking whether criminal proceedings attack  Germany Seems To Be Isolated—V'iew of a Russ Delegate.  An official communication shows that Herr von Rarowitz, the first Germiiu delegate, joined in the discussion of the police question and admitted that of necessity the police force must be organized by the sultan: but he held that there should be iiarticipation. by all tho powers represented at the conference.  The German delegates" contention, therefore, is directly opposed to the Russian suggestion, as Baron Bacher-acht, the second Russian delegate, argued that ineilicacy of collective action by the powers in Morocco had been proved by the unsuccessful operations of the international sanitary committee at Tangier. He pointed out that French officers' experience with Mussulmans and Spanish officers' experience with Rifhans had placed them the best position to control the Moorish elements, which eventually must form the main body of the police by which th.e security of foreigners is to be assured and commerce facilitated.  M. Revoil, the senior French delegate, expressed France's willingness to accept the Russian suggestion, following on with the proposal that the police force shall consist of 2,000 Moors distributed at eight ports, each having four European non-cammissioned officers selected with the sultan's assent, and -who shall become Moorish officials.  The Spanish delegates strongly sup port joint Spanish and French control, arguing from the point of view that the proximity of those countries to Morocco gave them greater interests than the other powers, whose equality of rights, however, will not be affected thereby.  Was His Respect in Danger? New York. March G.—Third Deputy Police Commissioner .Tames F. Mack has handed In his resignation, which was accepted by Commission Bingham. Mack issued a statement, in which he said: "I came to the police department with respect for my fellow man. I leave it while that respect is still untarnished."_  Not So Bad as "Was Expected.

The total loss of life is estimated at fifty. _____  Some people will never learn anything, for this reason, because they understand everything too soon.—Pope.  Money Value of St. IiOuLs.  When Louis IX.. the saint, surrendered with his whole forces to the Saracens at ?^Iansura ou the 5th of April, 1250, 1,C00,UÜ0 golden bezants— etiual to half that number of the llvres of the day—were demanded for his freedom. But the Moslems came down to SOO.OOO bezants, and in the end by surrendering Damietta Louis got off for 100,000 marks—equal, roughly, to over £1,000,000 of today. These golden bezants contained about 30 shillings' worth of our gold, but to go to market with -would buy then as much probably as Ti^.soverelgrts now would. Were the scorncr allowed to break forth here he would probably tell how this high priced and saintly carcass was treated by his people when Louis died at the siege of Tunis, twenty years later. Being hard up for embalmers, they had, according to tho journal of An-bery, to quarter and boll him down In separate caldrons and so sent but his whited skeleton to France.—London Chronicle.  The People of Great Britain.  Bthnologically Great Britain is a mixture of many races, resulting from a succession of invasions. When the Romans Invaded Britain tho inhabitants wore Celtic, mi.icd with an earlier Euskarian non-Aryan elLMnent. They continued to be mainly so until the fifth and sixth centuries, when the level parts of the country were overrun by German tribes. Then followed invasions by the Danes and other Scandinavian tribes and lastly the Norman conquest. The inhabitants of England and the lowlands of Scotland, therefore, sprang from an amalgamation of the original Celtic with German and Scandinavian blood. Wales and the highlands of Scotland are still inhabited by descendants of the ancient Celtic tribes. The people of Ireland also are of Celtic origin, although there is an admixture of many other races.  LATEST OFF THE WIRE  INDIANA VETERANS RESENT EFFORT TO HONOR LEE.

Which is the costliest building In America? Would you answer offhand the New York state capítol at Albany? Hardly.

The Empire State capitol cost $24,-000,000, while the one at V/ashington, two acres larger, cost only .$12,000.000 and tlie Congressional libraiy only $7,-000,000.
