MAOnS, WEDNJESDAlT BVENING, MABCH 25, 1903.  FITE CENTa  hadi>laced at his disposal a very band-some fortutie.  tit'neral Morrell is tall and straight and the hippy possessor of a fí^^ure that would charm the artistic sensibilities of a Parisian niodis^i. From the time of his first appearaticie as a member of congress suspicions concerning that ñgure have been lurkhig in ihe minds of his anxious and ^alous Colleagues.  Congressman Gaines has himself been called the handsomest man in the House, so it is possible thai some of the aversion he has manifested toward the gentleman from Philadelphia is due to envy.  Latterly the gentleman from Tennessee has devoted much of his attention to the atrocities ^committed upon the White House in the shape of alleged "improve-ments" under the direction of Architect McKim. When John Wesley is full of a subject he becomes terribly in earnest and cannot broolc interference.^ For several days he had been fighting to secure recognition by the chair in order that he might lauttííh forth his invectives against the White House atrocities. Now, for some reason which he does not quite understand, hi? colleagues in'the House do not take John Wesley as seriously as he takes himself; when, therefore, he launched forth upon his tirade of criticism, there were cries of various kinds which might be called jeers from the republican side of the chambers, John Wesley began but hadjiot finished his first sentence before he was compelled on account of the confusion to suspend. Again he began, and asaiiLthe same result. The speaker's gavel having restored some degree of order he made another attempt, this time the loudest noise coming from the vicinity oftlTeseat of General Morrell of Pennsylvania.  the Tennessean's anger had reached the eitptosivfe'point. Turning quickly to a crowd of democrats who sat near him he shook his southern fist ¿Svvard Morrell and said:  D--that fellow, if he don't stop I'll  J.A..BOmOK.

There are 600 different patterns.  A very ^uccessfiil entertainment was that given for the benefit of the Congre-gational church last Thursday evening at Music hall. The affair was in charge of several ladies prominent in the society, Mrs. Stephen L. Kingsley,chairman, Mrs, Vernon G. Wasgatt, Mrs. Heman Richards, Mrs John Harriman and Mrs. Frank Cross. Although the affair was hastily prepared for there was no sign ofit in the well arranged program which was carried out smoothly.  The hall was crowded at an early hour, the little people being much in evidence. The entertainment consisted of a series of pantomimes and tableaux in which the characters from Mother Goose were represented by well known townspeople. Great care was used in selecting the impersonators and the result was that the personages of nursery lore were most aptly represented. Mr. L. B. Deasy was interpreter, wittily explaining each tableau. In introduction Mr. Deasy said in part that many of our beliefs and illusions had been taken from us, Romu lus and Remus have been proved myths, the plays of Shakespeare have been ascribed to another, question has been raised as to the veracity -«if historical accounts of Jonah and l|ie whale, and even the existence of Mother Goose was at one time questioned. However it has been satisfactorily proved that such a personage did exist. Some 200 years ago, a lady named Mrs. Goose lived near the city of Boston. She had one daughter who married Mr. Fleet, a printer, and he issued the first volume« of Mother Goose's melodies.  It Is well for us that she has been so well vouched for, for "what is home without a mother—Goose?" If you were called upon to name the six women most famous in history' Mr, Deasy said that without doubt they were the following:—Joan of Arc, Katherine of Aragon, Queen Elizabeth, Lydia E. Pinkham, Carrie Nation and Mother Goose.  An orchestra composed of Messrs. George A. Joy, Frank D. Foster and Leon W. Tabbutt furnished music and Mrs. Leon W. Tabbutt presided at the piano during the tableaux. Following are the list of characters:—Old King Cole, C. W Murray; Fiddlers Three, G. A. Joy, Franlt D. Foster and Leon W. Tabbut; Frank Roberts, cornetist; Mother Goose, Mrs Farrell; Little Boy Blue, Luther Leach Contrary Mary, Rosa Richards; Little, Bo-Peep, Helen Yeaton; Fleshy Boy with' soup, Philip Wood; Jack Be Nimble, Jack Be Quick, Simpson Carter; Jack and Jill, Eddie Linscott and Ethel Hayward; Miss Mufiett, Marion Wakefield; Little Red Riding Hood, Nina Allen; Mary and her Litile Lamb, Louise Deasy; Puss in Boots, Shirley Joyce; Little Jack Horner, Henry Wood; , Queen^ of Hearts, Mrs. Vernon Wasgatt; King of Hearts, Mr. Tabbutt; Knave of Hearts, Grosvenor Richards; Simple Simon, C.

ME  is not generally known how narrow an esc^ipe' the House^of Representatives in Washington had during the excitement of the closing days of the session from a sensation compared with which all of the others of those strenuous times would have paled into insignificance.  John Wesley Gains iis nothing if not in-' tense. John Wesley has a pet aversion in the person of Congressman Edward Morrell of Pennsylvania, Congressman Morrell poses as the handsomest man in congress. In addition to his unquestioned beauty he possesses two distinctions. One is that he earj^ed the titl6 "general" through command of a brigade of the Pennsylvania militia in time of peace, the other is that he marriedthe daughter of oncvtpf the wealthy Drexels, and thereby  Mr, Edward S. Clark made the speech of the day in the senate a few days ago on a bill which was introduced compelling corporations to give iheii^stockholders a list ot their assets and liabilities according to their books at the end of the last hscal year. Mr. Clark said in part:  1 think well of and shall vote for this bill under discussion notwithstanding the fact that the judiciary committee have refused it their official cognisance. 11 is one step towards legislation for the people against monopoly. It is in line with the last presidential message which re(|uires publicity of all corporations, yet does not go so far as his recommendations: as this bill only allows those that have their money invested knowledge of the iinanrial standing of the company.  There has been a great deal said here this term of the legislature in regard to the earnings and small deposits of widows and orphans in our savings institutions, and about laws that we should enact for their protection. Why not continue the same principle by protecting the same people who have their small pittances invested in a small block of stock of a corporation. What protection has a person who has only a few hundred dollars invested in a corporation and what could be more fair than to compel the corporation to give that small stockholder a list ot the assets and liabilities of the company; which is all this bill provides for.  I do not claim to have the long legal Experience that the eminent senator from Androscoggin boasts of. I do claim to hive some personal experience, however, in corporations. When 1 was but 18 years old I purchased a block of stock, under the promise that it would soon make me very wealthy. That stock was gotten up most beautifully, and upon bond paper with a big red seal, and it looked well enough for a necktie.  When I commenced to look for my untold wealth I went to the directors to find what we had for assets and liabilities. I was sent from one to another and told they would shortly have a meeting, but the first meeting those gentlemen do^have will be in that unknpwn world above. Well! I tried it once more, and invested $250 in another one, I tried to find out the assets and liabilities of that company but faUed. I made up my mind I would not have that tiling staring me in the face any longer, and I tied it to a rock and threw it overboard, but lo, and behold i I was sued under the state for stockholder's liability and had to pay, $125 in addition.  I am glad that the eminent senator has shifted his position, and is willing now to resort to the courts, as la the insurance discussion he Is willing to do away with the courts. Sudden changes of the heart are dangerous. We are fitcioe % Sreat national calamity where It has become necessary by legislation ^to prevent the greed of Jthose leeches from sucking the very lif^ blood of our people. They have been jiytly described as a mere shell by  which a body of individuals do business, though they would be more justly described as the shell game. Everything is now done under a corporate name, every conception of man has been incorporated, bonded and sold, the powers of the air and water, the restless forces of the elements, which in the time of the discoverer were the terrors of the wrath of God, have been subdued to the services of man, incorporated, bonded and sold.  Some legislation is necessary because principles are eternal and should be respected. Disguise it as you may, the gieat controversy about corporations is between power and the people. As strong as may be the love of power of the great captains of industry, just so strong is the love of fair play on the part of the people. All men are equal on the common deck of life and we should legislate to that end.  Twice during the session of this legislature have we been asked to pass upon rights between the people and corporations, once upon the standard fortn of insurance policy, and yesterday, on the Mes-salonskee Light company, and both times have we Ijeen found wanting. This senate has always been a synonym for integrity. At the first part of this session we listened to the very able remarks of the senator from Kennebec, Mr. Alden, upon the dairy interests of the state. The eloquence of that speeoh has not been equalled this session. He referred to our gallant sons who fought so nobly on Southern battlefields, to the illustrious sons of Maine in Congress, but said he was humiliated that the price of^aine butter in the Boston market was two cents a pound less than New Hampshire,  Let me ask the honorable senator if he would have been proud of those noble sens and if he would not have been more humiliated if a question has arisen between the people and corporations and our noble sons had voted againt the rights of the people in favor of the corporations, and if he would not • have been more humiliated still if those illustrious sons had voted for the people on one day on one of these questions and against them the next, on the same question. Would you not have questioned their loyalty to the people.?  other on the sugar-king, H. 0. Havemeyer Field marshal Viscount Wolseley, K. P, H. G. Wells, Henry Seton Merriman.

The April Cosmopolitan is a carctully balanced magazine. It appeals to the individual tastes of the ma<iy, and the many tastes of the individual. 'I licre are 17 stories and articles—loi pictures. Chief place is given to a striking article on " Tlie Américanisation of the Canadian .Northwest," written by William K. .Stewart. /\ personal sketch of 1S> jornstei ne U\jurn-son, the prophet poet of Norway, is most entertaingly written, and is illustrated witr a number of beautiful phoiogray^lis (if the poet's home. "To Love or To I i > ved" is a philosophical essay, by La\ i .1 Hart, in the course of which she sh(j\v that to love means increase of physical beauty— an end which may also be gained by physical exercise, as is shown in tlie same number by Bernarr MacFaddeii, in an article entitled "Health Made and Preserved by Daily Kxercise." Dr. Ceorge F. Shears writes on "Medicine," as part of the series,"Making a Choice of a Profession." "Famous Cures and Humbugs ot Europe," is by the late Julian Ralph. "Romances of the World's (¡reat Mines" Calumet and Hecla. by S. K. Molfett. There are also two sketches—one on the great financier, Jacob H. Schitf; and the  FROM RAYMOND JOTTINGS.  Mrs. J. Pierpont Morgan and party j came in fronrNew York by wky of New Orleans Monday evening shortly after 9 o'clock. The private car "L. S. M. S,. No. 44," one of the most handsome cars of the system, brought the party in. The car was dropped irom the Overland at Shorb station and was run to The Raymond iipmediately on the Pasadena branch of the road. With Mrs, Morgan were Miss Janes, Miss Woolsey and Miss Theodore Woolsley, all of New York. Mrs, Morgan and her companions will remain at The Raymond indefinitely, probably until the warm balmy breezes call them back toward the city. J. Pierpont Morgan, the great financier, was not in the party, having been detained in the east on business. It is expected that he will join Mrs. Morgan here later ot\. and remain probably for some time. Mr. Morgan is at the present time in Havanna Cuba, with a party of financiers. Wheth-er he will come directly on here from Cuba is not definitely known as yet. The Mor» gan party are occupying a handsome suite of looms on the second floor of the hotel, which were reserved for them some-months ago.  William L. Elkins, the multi-millionaire and the street car magnate ot Philadelphia with his party came in Saturday morning to remain at the Raymond for séme time.
