.1 1 1 ; i i t i l! 'i i i ' C WEEKLY STATESMAN. TIIK WEEK IN COXiiKKSS. The past week has not been a very notable one in congress. Tha principal bills introduced mid debated were the pension bill and the bill for the admission of Dakota. The chief point of internet in the pen- Mion bill neems to be the charge that it in a bid by iln supporter for the voUsof it beneficiaries. Thin charge seems to have struck home in several cnses if one may jnde from the way the supporters of the bill squirm under this home tlirunt. The people are beginning to tire of this drain upon the treaxury and the use of the public monies to further the polit ical ends of Home of the congressmen. The second bill that of the admission of Dakota is pushed by the republicans for political reasons ulone: they are not urging its admission either for the pur- pose of benefitting the state or the United States but because it insures them more strength in congress and more votes in the electoral college. The democrat...

6 AUSTIN WEEKLY STATESMAN. THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 111886. WEEKLY STATESMAN. TilH I.AWSOKTKAOE. The Farmers' Alliance deny thnt they have participated by any official action with the boycott of the Miillory line by the Knight of Labor. The Farmers' Alliance or the I'litmns of Hunbandry is a very conoervativc buMineHH-like and practical association. Their only object in alliance is to buy what they need without the intervention of middlemen or commission merchants and while they felicitate themselves on this kind of avoidance they forget in their enthusiasm ol the order that tlirir aid agents perhaps cost them more than the tax upon tlio u;ood-t purchased by their own agents. This delusion is a happy tiling for them and it is well that they congratulate them- Helves on the shrewdness of the device. Many men acting as their special agents have become very wealthy by the monop- oly of their business that they havo been enabled to Ox upon the dealings of the farmers by the ingenuity of appar...

There has not been ft time in many years when both houHes of congress con- tained bo few pre-eminent and acknowl- edged leaders as at present occupy seats therein. In the senate the democratic side is the weakest in this respect while in the house the republicans suffer most by the comparison. If these conditions were exactly reversed it would perhaps more nearly equalize matters in a politi- cal sense for as the case now stands it is the minority side in each house that is weakest in leadership and there is noth- ing that more closely resembles a forlorn hope in a legislntivo body than a minority inadequately led. The majority with a friendly presiding officer will generally pull through in the face of a deficiency of commanding leadership and th...
