IT COSTS TOO MUCH.
A United States Senator Forced to
design and Go Home Because
HE COULDFT LIVE ON HIS SALAET.
Congressmen Begin to Think the Laborer
is Worthy of His Hire.
THEISI1T SIBIKE FOE HIGHER WAGES.
tiwg la Washington Considerably More Eipensire
Tnin it Ought to Be,
Congress is thinking seriously of increas
ing the salaries of the members of both its
branches. The cost ot living in "Washing
ton: is said to be too great for the salaries
now paid, and each member has so much
clerical work to do. Senator Chace, of
Enode Island, was forced to resign because
be couldn't lire on his income.
Washington, March 17. The resigna
tion of Senator Chace upon the threshhold
of his second term of six years in the high
est legislative body in the world has aroused
renewed interest in a subject that is bound
to receive early and earnest consideration
in Congress. Senator Chace, in private,
gives as the reason why he can no longer
serve his State and country as a legislator
that the compensation of a Senator was not
sufficient to warrant him in longer neglect
ing bis business. He has expressed the
opinion that be is considerably poorer for his
legislative experience than be would have
been had he remained at Ihe helm of his
business ship and directed its course through
the breakers of the past dozen or fifteen
Senator Chace is one of the largest cotton
manufacturers in New England, and several
times during the recent tariff debate in the
Senate evinced his familiarity with that
subject in its relations to the industry in
whibhe-was interested, and gave valuable
assistance to his Bepublican colleagues in
the discussion of the Senate substitute for
the mils bill.
TALK OF KTCBEASCfG SAL AMES.
The question of increasing the compensa
tion of Congressmen has been receiving the
earnest attention of Senators, especially of
late, and there is an overwhelming senti
ment among them in favor of making the
salary of Congressmen $10,000 a year in
stead of $o,000,as it is at present Mem
bers of the House, while thoroughly in
sympathy with the Senators on this point,
are not yet ready to go to the iull length
desired bv them, fearing a repetition of the
outbreak of censure visited upon the Con
gress ot 1873 for its action in the salary
question. But it is argued by the advo
cates of the increased salary that what the
people were indignant about then was the
"back-pay grab" feature, and that if the in
crease were made to date from the end of
Congress no serious opposition would be
made to it
There was a frank expression of views by
the Senators on this topio in legislative
sessions last week, in Ihe discussion that
ensued upon the introduction of a resolu
tion by Senator Teller, authorizing the Sec
retary of the Senate to pay to committee
clerks serving on a per diem basis daring
the session of the Senate and the clerks to
Senators during the coming recess, the per
diem allowed by law.
EXTRA. HELP TO HIEE.
Mr. Teller, previous to presenting the
resolution, which was referred to the com
mittee on contingent expenses, said that in
bis experience as chairman of a committee
be had been compelled at times to employ
two men to attend to the correspondence de
volving UDon him, and it was a heavy bur
den upon bim. He believed Senators shonld
have an equal number of clerks because
their duties did not cease with the adjourn
ment of the Senate.
Senator Dawes, Stewart, Harris and Gray
indorsed the sentiments expressed by Mr.
Teller, but Senators Morrill, Mergan and
Hale said it would be impossible to provide
a clerk for every Senator this year, inas
much as the appropriations have all been
made, and in any event the co-operation of
the House would be essential to carrying
out the proposition. In concluding the de
bate, Mr. Piatt said: "Mr. President, when
the proper committee shall consider the
matters which have been spoken of here this
morning, I think that committee ought to
go further. I think it ought to consider the
question as to whether Senators are fairly
paid for the work which they do, and
whether the salary of a Senator of the
United States ought not to be raised.
KOI ALL BICH MEN.
"I know it is charged that the Senate of
the United States is composed largely of
rich men, to whom the salary is no object
To some extent it may be true that there
are Senators here to whom the salary is a
very little object, but there are Senators
here who have nothing to live upon except
their salaries, and who are paid therefor less
for services which they render than they
would be paid in any other walk or occupa
tion of life for similar services, and verv
much less. In addition to that, Senators
have a great many expenses which their po
sition entails, and the result is that those
Senators who have no income behind their
salaries are obliged to live in a pinched and
very unpleasant way in the city of "Wash
ington. Mr. Morrill May I ask the Senator from
Connecticut if he is not aware that no man
can come here with his family and rent a
decent house and live without spending
twice the amount of his salary?
HOME COMFOJKTS MISSING.
Mr. Piatt I have been aware and I
thfnk perhaps I may as well say it as any
one, because I think I am as poor a man as
there is in the Senate I have been made
mostpaintully aware of the inability of a
Senator of the United States to live in the
city of "Washington in anything like the
style and with anything like the comforts
which we have at home. "We are at a
disadvantage which we feel every day
of our lives; and there are Senators
here who will echo what I say, knowing it
to be true. Now, I do not complain of it
for myself. I can remedy it for myself, if I
choose to do so. If I do not choose to en
dure the privation for I use that "word
which a Senator ot the United States who is
compelled to live on his salary must en
dure, I can remedy that by resigning my
place and coing home to my constituents and
allowing them to sendsomebody here who
has an income which he can devote to liv
ing in "Washington. I think that it is quite
time that some plain words were spoken on
this subject, and I have taken this occasion
to speak them.

John Rockefeller's Dnnghter to Wed a

New York, March 17. Miss Bessie
Rockefeller, eldest daughter of John D.

of Rochester. The wedding is set for

The Investigation Into the Smnsgling ot
Opinio by War of Canada A Cum-
paten Orator Implicated
Bismaech, Dae., March 17. Up. to the
present time Curran, the man whose sentence
for complicity in opium smuggling was sus
pended, has made no confession, as was ex
pected, or, at least, if he has the detectives
'are the only ones who are aware of the fact
Enough is known to warrant the employ
ment of a large force of detectives, several
of whom are now in Canada in the hopes of
uncovering the members of the gang who
are operating on the Canadian side. It is
said that several wealthy citizens of San
Francisco will be involved when the final
expose is made, and that the smuggling
combination will prove one of the strongest
in the country.
Curran and his wife have departed, and
the rumor in official circles is to the effect
that they are en route to Canada tomeetthe
detectives and aid in the arrest of the smug
glers. The officers are dumb and refuse to
impart information, but it is well known
that they are on the alert for proof which
will lead to the capture of the wealthy
members of the gang.
The report is that General A. B. "Ward,
the scholarly fraud who climbed to the top
in Dakota politics and gained the confi
dence of the Indiana managers during the
campaign by his able speeches for Har
rison, is one of the smuggling workers.
To those who have studied the man it is
-considered more than probable that he is
now in Canada under another alias. At
the time Curran was arrested for transport
ing the smuggled opium several more ship
ments of the drug were being ms.de over
land, but the swindlers have so manipu
lated their wires that the officers have thus
far been unable to trace them.
THE INDIANA IDEA.
Coal Operator Expect to Get Trade From
Brazil, March 17. The Indiana coal
operators, who withdrew from the joint con
vention of the Miners' National Union at
Columbus, "Wednesday last, because their
demand for 12 per cent reduction in the
yearly scale bases was refused, will meet at
Terre Haute to-morrow to effect a State or
ganization. They claim they can get coal mined at 57
cents for bituminous and 70 cents for block.
No difficulty with the miners is anticipated,
and work will improve as the market is re
gained from Illinois, Ohio and Pennsyl

Our formal Opening of new Spring Styles cannot help but attract

buy your Boys' Clothing at a store that sells none but thoroughly
reliable goods, made according to the late3t prevailing fashions, and
sold at prices that are within the reach of all, then Kaufmanns'
should be your place to buy. As for variety, we have no rivals in
the field; our present showing aggregates no less than 322 different
styles of Kilt Suits, 975 styles of Short Pant Suits and 'about 500
styles of Long Pant Suits.

Our stock is calculated to supply every want and requirement, every

while our Spring Overcoats are cut of such fashionable woolens as
English Broad Wales, light weight Meltons, Covert Cloths, Vene

latest shades, colors and patterns. We have set out to capture the

Garments "made to order" js a specialty with us. There is not
another Clothing house in this country'that turns out as much cus
tom work. This is a fact well known to the trade. It is equally
well known that we import and buy direct from the leading man
ufacturers and in turn supply many of the merchant tailors with
cloths. As jobbers we buy at much lower figures than are obtained
by the exclusive tailors of Pittsburg. This advantage, combined
N with the fact that we carry about three times the assortment of
fabrics and patterns that can be found in any other local house, ac
counts for the popularity of our Merchant Tailoring Department
with fine dressers. The lowest prices the best workmanship and
the largest stock are the three factors responsible for our supremacy.
Ladies' Wraps, Jackets, Jerseys
Our Cloak Department enjoys the distinction of supplying the most
aristocratic and fashionable Ladies of Pittsburg with new spring
garments. Our importations frrm Berlin and Paris of choice styles
