REPEAL OF CANAL
Free Tolls For American Ships
ROADS' INTEREST REACTIVE
When Congressman Mann Disclosed
How Railroads Worked Against
Measure It Received Greater Support.
Patronage Declared to Have Big Ef
fect on Legislation and Elections.
By ARTHUR W. DUNN.
Washington, Feb. 10. Special.
Friends of Governor Wilson have been
feeling around to find out if It is possi
ble to repeal the provision of the Pan
ama, canal bill which grants free tolls
to American coastwise ships. The gov
ernor would like to have that done In
order to relievo his administration of a
rather severe diplomatic strain at the
very outset. And yet one of the best
friends tho governor has In the senate.
Senator O'Gorman, is strongly opposed
to the repeal, advocated by Secretary
But there will be no repeal. Con
gressman Mnijji replied to Root's
speech and kilTd the proposition by
remarking that the transcontinental
railroads had been getting busy trying
to bring it about. After that remark
there was not the least possibility of
repealing the free coastwise provision.
Use of Patronage.
Use of presidential patronage came
In for a drubbing during the debate of
the six year presidential term. Sena
tor Lodge did not think that patronage
had so much to do with influencing
nominations, which shows that he has
not been very careful in his recollec
tions. Benjamin Harrison was renom
inated by the use of patronage. Mr.
Taft was helped to the nomination in
1008 by the use of patronage and was
renominated in 1912 in the same way.
Senator Lodge thought that the great
est misuse of patronage was in influ
encing legislation in congress. In that
regard he should be well Informed, for
lie knows how Cleveland, McKluley,
Roosevelt and Taft have used or re
fused patronage in order to carry
through measures they wanted enacted
There was no politics In tho adoption
of the amendment to the constitution
limiting the term of the president to
six years and, making him ever after
ward ineligible. Republicans of both
factions voted for it, as did Democrats
of both factions. The same is true of
those who voted ngainst the resolu
tion. There was a bit of the personal
in the vote.
No Roosevelt man voted for the reso
lutlon, but several anti-Roosevelt men
voted against it. So it was hard to ills
cover much, save that Roosevelt fig
ured a little. It was evident that the.
nntl-Roosevelt men in ooth parties
would like to make it constitutionally
impossible for the man from Oyster
Bay to be president ngaln. j
Biffed the Lawyers.
Discussing some subject relating to
the government, John Sharp Williams 1
said: "Thus far Jefferson went. Thus
far I go. Thus far every man with
comnson sense goes unless he Is n mere
lawyer and nothing else, and tho mere
lawyer and nothing else is the most
dangerous man to free institutions."
"Especially if he Is a constitutional
lawyer," Interjected Polndexter of
Washington, who has had many tilts
with tho constitutional lawyers of the
It has become evident that if this
session of congress should complete all
the appropriation bills by the 4th of
March the total will equal that of any
other previous session In spite of the
efforts toward economy. Naturally the
expenses of the government Increase
year by year, more particularly when
new Institutions like tho postal savings
banks and the parcel post are added
to postofllce expenditures and there Is
a demand for larger public building
bills aud Increased river and harbor ap
propriations. A Pleasant Pastime.
Providing for the increased needs of
the government, the house committee
on appropriations adds new employees
and rearranges tho employment or
men In the government service. On-
der the strict rules of the house this is
.wiaintinn n .mnrnnrintlnn hills" ami
subject to a point of order. And when
those bills come up in the house sev
eral Indefatigable economists get busy
and knock out tho provisions.
It takes much time and discussion,
delays business, nnd all that, but it
makes a record for tho watchdogs.
Then the senate puts nil these in
creases back in the bill, and when the
bill goes to conference the house con
ferees quickly accept tho senate pro
visions, and tho bill is just where It
was before the raid upon it. "Wo are
boys grown," once remarked John
Sharp Williams when a member of tho
Many "Swan Songs."
Every time Dncle Joe Cannon makes
n speech these days the versatile re
porters refer to It as n "swan song."
Pretty soon the venerable ex-speaker

RECIPE FOR TAMALES

Noticing In The Citizen the Item
about Tamales being now used In
uiau ana tne laea tnat they may
take the 'Place of hot mush and pan
cakes, now I beg to say that I have
lived on the Pacific coast 20 years
ana am well acquainted with them,
and If you will allow me space, I will
explain them to you.
They are not a breakfast dish
They are a Mexican dish and do
signed for a dinner or lunch, and
are In great demand when people
get accustomed to them. When peo
ple come In town from the country
during cold weather, a hot tamale
Is called for with a cup of hot coffee
There are places in large towns
where during cold weather, some do
nothing but keep them ready. You
win see on days tnat people are
expected in towns, that the restaur
ants will have out their sign, "Hot
Tamales To-day." They are seldom
made during the summer, as they
are a winter dish, and one must pre
pare them from husks. When I Uv-
ed there over 2 years ago, they were
selling them for 10c each. They
certainly are a fine dish for what
they are intended. ' I am enclosing
a couple of recipes which you
might publish, as some one from
your county might like to try them
MRS. SUSAN iE. ALLEN.
liox 13 H. D, l.
Recipe for not Tamales No. 1.
Boll six pounds beef, three cloves
of garlic, salt and pepper to taste
2 hours; if not tender 1)011 a little
longer, but never three hours. One
hour before time to lift out meat
put in 2 heaping tablespoons of
Chill powder, also one quart of to
matoes with seeds removed, If liked,
If not, leave out. Fill up broth to
ten pints and thicken It with flour
as for gravy to the consistency of
thin sweet cream, or a little thicker,
and the tamale is served over it.
To imake the tamaie, soak corn
husks over night In warm water,
and when putting In tho ingredients
In tho husk Immerse them In warm
water that has melted tallow on the
top of tho water to prevent the mush
from sticking. Spread husks over
Tamale mould, or If one has no
mould use a fruit sauce dish. Spread
husks over lay on mush first, two
large spoonfulls. Then tho meat
which has been ground (all gristle
and bones removed) one tablespoon;
two raisins, two olives, spoonful of
chllisance, fold up the ends and
steam in boiler from three to live
hours but don't let the water touch
them. Make them larger If desired;
and for ones own use small bags or
sacks may be used. This recipe is
from one, of the best cooks known In
California. The olives and raisins
may just as well be left out. Chick
en may be used Instead of beef if one
Recipo No. 2.
Cook a good size chicken until
tender. Remove bones and chop or
grind meat fine. To each pound add
one medium sized tomato and onion
chopped fine, salt and pepper to
taste, and moisten to the consist
ency of mush with chicken broth.
Heat the remainder of the liquor to
boiling. Stir In corn meal to make
a little stlffer than ordinary mush
and cook thoroughly or steam
which Is better. Soak corn husks In
warm water until soft, then spread
a half Inch layer of mush on each
husk; put a good spoonful of the
meat mixture on that, and roll up
so thot the meat is covered by the
mush and the whole is nicely wrap
ped In the husk. Turn In tho ends,
tie tightly with twine and steam half
an hour. Serve In the husks.
I think this one is a good recipe.
It Is the ono mostly used In the com
mon restaurants on the 'Pacific coast.

and use them, and when I come to
