IIL Chicago Record, At this lune, when congress Is presumably the meat prominent object within tile view of the people, it is more than astounding that the earnest and almost revolutionary address of ■?, y°"r,& congressman Nieruand, which was uttered in the executive session of Feb. 30, bas been so successfully smothered and has penetrated to so insignificant a distance beyond the walls of the capitol. That address, ae companied as it was by the resignation of this courageous representative who had just entered upon his first term, caused an upheaval in the house such as its history knows naught of and Hie skill manifested by the party leaders in suppressing it indicates that that brand of statesmanship which lies in “fooling all the people most of the time” is sui! at its nighest development in Washington, It was in relation to the Cuban resolutions that congressman ,Niemand spoke, and although the Congressional Record, that well-edited compilation of false pretenses, has no mention even of the executive session iii question, we are enabled to present the most direct portions of the brave young member's arraignment of bis fellows. “It is only after a hard battle for recognition of my own belligerency, •Mr, Speaker,” be began, “that I at last succeeded in making myself heard in this hall. Through weeks of vexation and chagrin caused by the determined Boort of one man from one part of one state in the great array of common wealths which make up our republic to manipulate the sessions of this house to better advance bis own political ambitions, I have sat here and felt myself a recreant to my people for not devising some means to make this, ic part at least, a representative body —representative so far as concerns my constituency and that course of conduct to which I pledged rnvself on accepting my nomination. I have observed with an attention which utterly precludes the idea that I may be mistaking the course of procedure so magnificently directed by the gentleman from Maine whom I have the honor to address as the speaker of this house. I have noted how carefully he scans a1) things which are or which may possibly be brought before bito before permitting anything to be done which might be even suspected by bim to have an influence on a race for a higher office, which has become a mama w ith him.

It is to be expected that every man in this hall is a citizen and a lover of his country, else he has no business here, and if he feels that he must tell and reiterate and spasmodically affirm that he worships his country’s flag, I for one begin to gather the idea that he wants to wrap the flag about his body, not for love of the ensign, but to warm his political hopes in its fold* or to conceal his possibly ill-favored personality by its glorious fiber, Mr. Speaker, I am not alone in this theory of the vehement patriotism Lh S.
