SAME OLD DELUSION That Assembly IN a Source o Wealth I» Mt Work, Springfield News: Kvery housewife with a room or two to rent and every hoarding house keeper Is nuking the ll- ennlBl preparation for the coming of the cgislaton*. The deception uncovered every two yearn seems never Rrciit enough to llve from one term lo another and thi re Is. every two years, the samr number of wildly enthusiastic people who expect to reap a harvest from the members of tho general assembly. The dream4s as often broken and the sleeper fiwakeng to a realization that the legislature ai a money getter for the owner of the private house with rooms to rent is not a beautiful success. It Is painted in the glories of un Itullan sunset but the paint rubs off. The lenders In .the two houses live :it the hotels. The men of means live at the hotels. The rank and-file who come for what purpose many of them know not, live, almost by their wits, gome of them engage rooms down town and others live first ono place and then another. The number who engage rooms In the residence district and pay for the room by the week clear through tho session In small. In the first place until the tall end of the session t h e assembly is here only three days and sometimes four days a week. More often It Is three days. A majority go home at the end of the third day. It does not pay to engage a room for seven days when downtown there are scores that can be taken for two, three or four days or u week If necessary. The. same thing Is true of boarding housts. The average legislator likes to live downtown wllh tho rest of. the crowd. The restaurants and hotels catch nearly all of them. Those who come here attracted by the business of the session live at the hotels with the leaders where they can get at the bell wethers. So that for practical profit of the resldencer who has room* to rent or a board to fill the legislator doe* not fill tho-long felt want. He Is like every other man, he will stand go much and no more. The legislator as a rule Imagines he '« being robbed by every one whether he Is or not. Me thinks he I* paying a big price for everything he get*. This Is one of the traditions handed down from the earliest legislator. It Is the almanac Joke preserved and nicely done up In cotton, t Is unfolded and opened to view every two y^Hi's no matter in whose hands It may be held.
