Ntv inatUr whethnr tlioy like it or not-it ie the hill, and thus soes to the house, and, :iccicle:itfl biirmi, lo the statute books. Now the minority begins to frame a hill of its own. It, too, needs a commit-' too room. For half a century the ways and means lias had but oi-o apartment. Now it has two. A few days ago Speaker Reed took pauession of the ladies' reception room, closed up r.n entrance to the Capitol and made of it a ways and means meeting place. It i* a picturesque apartment, all mnrbls in walls and ceiling, a huge portiere ac one end and WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE HOOS13. rnittee, and how does it work? It is the moat powerful committee of congress. It is a court which sita in judgment on the commerce, the manufactures, the labor of the people. | No other thirteen men in the land have Bo much 1'eHponBibility, so much power, as havothey. All the governors of states, all the cabinet ministers, all the justices of tho supremo court, aTe as pigmies compared to them. As parties go and legislation is carried on, a ways and means committee of the house of representatives possesses authority that is al most monarchical, for it prepares tho laws in which is exercised that greatest function of covernment, the taxing power, and the political party which has made the committee generally enacts the measures which it prepares and proposes. � Tito ways and means committee is the federal taxing board. It not only determines how muob money shull flow into tho coffers of the government, but whence it shall come. Tho taxing board of a county or city as a rule buy power only to fix tho sum to be collected and to pro rate that among all property owners, so much tax lo each hundred dollars nl assessed value. No such restrictions bind tho autocrats of the ways and mount, committee. H is within their province to let one man go scot freo of taxes and to tax another to ck-ath,* to say to one manufacturer, "Yea shall prosper and �wax rich," and to his neighbor, "You shall bo ruined;" to extinguish or kindle furnace tires; to open or close the doors of factories, and to stop or sfcirt the great engines in mills and mines. This -------------- aiunesis irre nffueu to oe present ana offer arguments concerning the chunks in the law which they desire. Thewe in terostfl are never backward. They como to the front always in large numbers. They como from all parts of the country and from every walk of life. Here mill ionairo manufacturers like '3arnegie and Spreckels meet plain, blunt farmers like Mr. Brown, of York county, Pa., and Mr. Piollet, of Bradford county. Sometimes great lawyers appear before tho committee to make arguments for their client*, and members of the house, and senators also, for their constituents. Thes taritf hearings are held before the full eommittee, Democrats as well its Republicans. The doors are open, too, and whosoever will may come. Often large crowds assemble, and help to make up a scene of rare interest. In the mid-dio of a room about thirty-five feet square is a long, wide table. It is covered with books, papers and documents. Surrounding it are thirteen chairs, and tho table just in front of each chair bears the name of one of the members. Here Bits the committee, and crowding about are hundreds of spectators, only a few of whom can find scuts. Tho houso rules against smoking do not obtam here, and every otlior man has a cigar in his mouth. Of t ourse the air is very bad, and about once in ten minutes an old man who Btanda it. the rear of the room with along pole in his hand readies up and pulls down a window, Seven or eight minutes later, when the men with bald heads begin to cor.iplain, the old man pushes tho window up again. Thus, while we are learning something about tho taxing power of our government, we also gain an insight to the c ratio methods of ventilation practiced in the government's greatest building, into v hich a score of millions of tho tax money h.ivo been poured. The men who come to present arguments beforo the committe 3 bring w.-th them great numberB of samples. Soon tho big table is covered vith pieces of cloth, bunches of wool, fragments pf metal, glass and carthenws re, BUgar and sirups in little bottles, ant many scores of such things. Clerk Cai/son is rapidly building up a ways and means mui'.eum, composed entirely of theso sample articles, and ranging in variety from a pin from Sheffield to the hide of a South American Bteer. After tho hearingB are concluded the real work of making a tariff bill begins, This is done with closed doors, and only the majority of tho committee participate. When theltepuVicansarein powe the chairman and his party friends re tiro to somo private room to do their work in secret. Meanwhile tho Democrats stand by and complain of this "dark lantern'' method. When the Democrats ;iro in ]lower they get olf in some pluu: iiy themselves, and then the Republicans raise the cry of dark lantern methods, tjuch, it will bo observed, is polities in America. It is a serious job which these men un dertakn when they sit down in xjrivate. A tariff- bill is a formidable document, Tradition baa it that the average tariff bill contaius 4,000 items.

Walter Wellmak. I'lrs-isnqu^'s force of re'porters at that timo was small, and Mr, llearn, who happened to call, was asked by Sfr. Ooek-r.rell to do the descriptive part, Mr. ,1. 11. McCormlck, now tho business agent of W. II. Crane, the actor, was Mr. Ilearn's co-worker in that reportorial sensation, for it made a sensation peculiarly above and beyond what tho usual newspaper accounts of murders create. Mr. Hearn's powers of picturing the horrible had a fertile field in that murder. Ho went to the Ecene of tho tragedy, and not only used his sense of sight, feeble na it was, to an advantage whloh other reporters of perfect vision did not accept, but he brought to bear upon the case in hand his sense of smell and touch. To see the horrors of the case he was compelled to stoop close over the charred remains, and, as a consequenoe, he could not help using Ids olfactories, And yet he went further. I do not believe Mr. Hearn over approached ao object close enough to Bee it that ho did not favor it with his caressing touch. The tan yard victim was no exception, Mr. Hearu saw it, smelled it, touched it. Yea, he put a finger into the eyeless socket of tho half consumed head, pretty much as ho had a habit of thrusting his index digit through the button hole of your coat. Then he went back to the office, sat down to a desk, or rather lay down on one-for he never sat upright while preparing a manuscript-and when his task was done he had accomplished a literary horror. No man of this generation except Lafcadio Uearn could havo drawn such a shuddering word painting of what be saw, had smelled and handled in the victim of "The Tan Yard Murder." Therefrom dated his engagement as a reporter for Tho Enquirer. I began work in the same department the day following the murder, the day upon which Mr. Heain'e master stroke of descriptive writing appeared in print. O. P. CiTIXJR. CHESS AND CHECKERS.

TUB inner sanctum, is a tyraut's power, but It is precisely tho power wielded by the thirteen men on wham we are to look, i The ways and means committee, of course, represents in a majority of its members the party in power in the house of representatives.

But the number gives no adequate idea of tho scope of a tariff bill, It is a thing which cannot bo expressed in numbers. Leaving out the tew hundred items mentioned in the full list, everything else known to the people, everything which they wear, drink, smoke or use In their liomea, on their persons, in their stores, offices, factories and fields, bears a rate of duty. And here sit the eight potentates of commerce, of trade, of manufacture*,; twisting the industries of the country about their fingers by the siinplo putting on of fractions and peroeuts, or by the taking away of tho same. Prosperity or adversity to hundreds of important Industries follows each letter which the clerk puts down on paper at tho direction of theso eight men. Is it any wonder the ways and means is considered the greatest of committees? Is it any wonder that H visually absorAs the beet experience of The Genial Joiepu Mid a Cheekier Thing Thar, Dllworth Clio ate of New York. [Special Correspondence/] New York, April 10.-The case of Choate, the reporter who hid in the jury room at the Flack trial, has given rise to all sorts of reminiscences and yarns concerning instances of newspaper enterprise, or reportorial cheek. The story of Joe Howard's first piece of newspaper work is perhaps one of the most interesting, and is certainly characteristic of the man. Joe had just returned from an unsuccessful busineat venture in California and was visiting friends ic Lynn, Moss. Tho great strike of tho Lynn shoemakers was in progress, and when Joe reached the hotel he found the names of half a dozen well known newspaper reporters on the register. It was the fashion in those days for the correspondent to register the name of the paper ho represented, and after Howard had read, "So-and-so, Tho New York Herald;" "Blank Blank, The New York Tribune," and so on, he became afflicted with a spirit of emulation and wrote in a large, flowing hand, Joseph Howard, Jr., The New York Times." He had, at that time, never written a line for a newspaper in his life, and his only connection with The Times was as on occasional purchaser. In the course of the afternoon be met several of the newspaper men and found that they were In tho dumps. The strikers were holding meetings with closed doors, and It was impossible to learn anything of their doings. I'll fix that," said Joseph, after listening to the tale of woe. That evening he marched down to the hall where the meetings were held, knocked on the door, and when it was opened boldly pushed his way in. He strode up the middle aisle to the platform, stepped to the front, besido the chairman's table, interrupted the speaker with a courteous yet commanding "Excuse mc for one moment, please," and then, before the astonished strikers could regain their scattered senses, bo launched into a characteristically Howurdian speech. He told them that ho had been stent on by The New York Times to represent their case fairly to a waiting world; that ho wished to counsel with them, to advocate their cause and assist them in gaining their point. Ho spoke enthusiastically of tho rights of labor, of the power of the press and the duty of American citi �ens. He told them stories, got them into thoroughly good humor and practically took charge of the meeting. After the meeting was adjourned he sat down to write his drat newapapor article. Ho sent it to Tho Times without a word of explanation, Bigned it "Howard" and awaited developments. The letter reached Tho Times office late at night, and the editor, supposing "Howard" to bo work ing under instructions from Mr, Raymond, printed it. The next morning when Mr. Raymond came to the office his first question was: "Who is Howard?' Nobody knew. His matter was bright, readable, and a decided "scoop." Mr. Raymond communicated with him and arranged to have him follow the strike to tho end On his return to New York ho became regularly connected with The Times, and has stuck to newspaper work ever s'nee, If it had not been for his spirit of "bluff he would hare probably been a merchant, and journalism would have been without one of its most entertaining figures, Allan Forman.
