John L. in Congress.
From Texas Shifting?.
Speaker of the House (impatiently)
—Who is that gentleman interrupting
the proceedings by thumping the
desk so loudly ?
John L. (angrily )—It’s me John
L. Sullivan—and I’ll thump you if
you don’t pay attention!
Speaker (concilliatiugly) Ah, beg
pardon, Mr. Sullivan; didn t see who
it was. But another gentleman was
speaking. You know parliamentary

Member (in a back seat)—I call
the gentleman to order, (lhen lie
ducks his head.)
John L—Order ’em yourself; J
called ’em on last.
Speaker—A gentleman stood up
before you, Mr. Sullivan.
John L.—For how many rounds?
(Scornfully.) His name wasu t Kil
rain, was it ?
Anti-Trust Representative (hland-
ly)—Before the honorable member
from Massachusetts interrupted me, I
was endeavoring to show my position
with regard to rings.
John L. (striking an attitude, as
there wasn’t anything else to hit)
This is my position with regard to
rings. How do you like it ?
Anti-Trust Member—The rings I
allude to are
John L.—Sixteen loot or twenty-
four foot? It doesn’t make any dif
fercncc to me.
Speaker—Perhaps i* would be as
well for the gentleman from Massa
chusetts to come to a finish.
John L.—Fight to a . finish, you
mean. That's what I always try to
do. But Mitchell wouldn’t stand up
to it, confouud him 1
Speaker—I must beg you, Mr.
Sulli-van, to confine yourself-
John L.—Confine myself! Not
much I won’t. And the governor of
Mississippi won’t confine me, cither
not if I can get out of it.
Speaker—But it is hard work
John L.—That’s the devil of it.
Hard work lor one year. But it s an

A Big Purchase.
The Central railroad has bought a
pretty piece of property in Hoboken,
N. J., for 8450,000. It will be used
for naval stores, lumber, pig iron,
and perhaps cotton yards.
The purchase was made with a
view to providing increased facilities
at the notbern terminus of the Cen
tral’s and Ocean Steamship Company's
line, consequent upon the rapidly in
creasing western traffic. The proper
ty was the last of the available sites
along the Hudson river, and if the
Central had delayed the purchase it
would have been without a site for
the handling of its increasing busi
