Rainey Would lnvcMigle
His Railroad Bills.
WANTS GOMMITILE TO PMl.
Illinois Representative Introduces a
Resolution Intimating That Roose
velt Was Furnished Trains Free
of Charge When President. I
Washington, Dot-. 'M, Theodore
Roosevelt's bills for transportation
wore brought ollielally to the attention
of the house by Representative Rnlney
of Illinois. Mr. Raluey introducod a
resolution providing for the appoint
ment of a committee of Ave members
of the house "for the purpose of In
Tcstigatlng the railroad expenses In
curred by Theodore Roosevelt while
president of the United States."
The spec ial committee Is directed by
the resolution to ascertain the total "f
all the transportation expenses Incur
red by Mr. Hoosevelt and what part
of it he paid.
In connection with the resolution Mr.
Ilainey sine out the following state
"I expucl to press this resolution and
to Insist on a thorough Investigation.
3 remember that when Mr. ltoosevell
was president he frequently made de
mund on the railroads for special
trains fur hunting trips and other jun
kets. The trains always were fur
nished. "The railroads could not afford to
refuse a demand by the president. 1
have reason to believe that the bills
contracted by the president were never
paid. These expenses fell heaviest on
the Pennsylvania Itallroad company.
"There are 45,000 or fiO.000 stock
holders In that company. It hns been
charsed that transportation to the val
ue of at least $100,000 was thus fur
nished to Theodore Hoosevelt by till
company. This bill ought to be paid.
Somebody ought to pay It. The de
mand for these trains and for supplies
were always made by the president In
his olhVkil capacity. If the govern
ment is responsible an appropriation
ought to be made to pay these bill".
"If Mr. Hoosevelt Is responsible for
the unpaid bills he ought to pay them
At any rate, congress ought to have
the facts In order to take such action
as the situation may demand.'

Handsome Sons Visit America.
Princess Cautacuzene. who before

years ago was .lulla Dent Grant,
daughter of General and Mrs. Kred D.
Grant and niece of Mrs. Potter Palm

her two handsome boys she arrived
from Hussia recently, and it Is her In
tention to show ler boys the famous
battlegrounds where their great-grand
father. General Ulyssus S. Grant, won
his victories during the civil war.
Tho little chaps are keenly interested
in American history, and there is nc
doubt that with their soldier grand
father for a guide they will learn more
of the history of the rebellion than
they ever could from books.
The princess, as may be gleaned
from her picture. Is just as charming
and girlish looking as a matron as she
was as the pretty Miss Julia Grant.

can easily accomplish the task with

be almost as effective.
There Is a fad this season for these

Look over your books. Pick out
the duplicates, or the paper covered
ones that you have read, , and give

of giving multiplies it.
