The Old and the New Congreis.
If the recent election has changed
the political complexion of the house
of rrpiesentatives as it will be after
March 4. from democratic torepublican
ascendamy the new house will have
nothing to do with law-making until
that date and President Wilson will
still have a democratic congress a
the short session just opened. This is
a long wait (or the new congress to get
to work When the constitution wai
(ramed there were magnificent dis-
tances in the thirteen colonies. Then it
might have taken a new congressman
weeks or even months to get to the seat
of government. Wise men later ob-
jected to the Louisiana Purchase on
the ground that its hinterland was so
remote that no common spirit could be
developed that would bring the im-
mense area into a political entity. Mut
the days of the stage-coach have passed.
A newly elected Pennsylvania con-
gressman dropped into the capital the
other day via the areoplane route. The
reasons for postponing for four months
the date upon which newly elected con-
gressmen should enter upon their duties
no longer exist. If this is to be a gov-
ernment by the people for the people it
would seem high time that the anomaly
of an unrepresentative congress mak-
ing the laws while the truly represen-
tative element waits on the outside
should cease - Leslie's.

So far there have been no fatalitiea
among the numerous hunters of this
section although reports come in of
reckless shooting by the nimrods. Quail
seem to be very plentiful here this sea
son and nearly every one who goes put
brings in the bag limit. Usually tha
farmers have had their places posted
or advertised against hunting but this
season thev seem to have relented and
ate more liberal to the sporting fra-
ternity. Hundreds of rabbits art
slaughtered daily and their cheapness
has enabled many to beat the high cost
of living as far as fresh meats go.
