United States Will Not Part With tie
Senator McBride Says Tbat He is in
Favor of America a Control.
Washington, April 9. The proposi
tion to exchange the Philipines for the
British West Indie ii confiued to one
New York paper, which i booming it
for some unknown reason. No on
takes any stock in it, least of all Great
Britain. The paper has been full of the
object and prints interviews which cm
not in any way be turned as favoring
the tcheme. There is no doubt a desire
cn the part of some of the people of
Jamaica to be annexed to the United
States so as to get the advantage of our
tariff laws, but further than this the
project does not go. It is becoming a
settled policy of toe United States tbat
the Philippines shall be retained as
part of the United States, and there is
no sentiment in favor of turning tbtva
over to any other country, either for
other territory or money. The sug
gestion last winter that the Philippines
honld be sold to Japan or England
railed a term of protest from those who
thought the matter was being seriously
Senator McBrlde, of Oregon, speak
ingot the interview with him in a New
York paper, says that he has formed no
opioion on the subject, because he re
gards it as purely hypothetical one.
lie has been misquoted to the extent of
favoring any sucb proposition. What
ever Senator McBride did say was no
doubt twisted so as to make it favorable
to the proposition, as the paper which
has advocated this exchange works such
schemes. Senator McBride has not
eeen the interview be is credited witb,
and for tbat reason does not wish to
enter any formal denial or endorsement
of what it contains. The whole subject
is one which is so remote and improba
ble tbat discussion of it by public men
is quite nseless.
Senator McBride stated positively
that his own view has been tbat the
United States should hold the Philip
pines, and be has not yet seen any rea
eon to change that view.

The I'lar I'tinenal One, and an Actresa
Equal to It Iteqlreineul.
In this day and age of the world ; this
age of (trong-minded, higher-educated,
new women, it is a very difficult matter
to comprehend such a character as
I been has depicted in "Nora," of a
Doll's House" a doll-woman, witb no
comprehension of life; no idea of the
stern realities of the world as every
woman, be she ever so shielded and
petted, must find it. While we admire
in some ways her sweet simplicity and
tender love for her husband, at the same
time we stand in utter amazement at
what would now be termed ber "dense
oees," and lack of womanliness, which
must in the end prevail. Indeed,
through all our disappointment at the
fatal ending of the beautiful dream life,
we yet heave a sigh of relief to find that
after all she awakens to find tbat she 1b
more than a doll, she is a woman, and
reveals at the same time the innate
womanliness so admirable in ber sex.
The unnaturalness of the character
assumed by Miss Thropp is proof to
our minds of her wonderful power as an
actress. Meeting nowhere in her walks
of life a character which would in the
slightest degree resemble "Nora," tbe
doll wife, being not so spoiled and
pettish, as child like, the actress has
simply no foundation for acting, and
creates the character herself, bringing
to her audience a. character wholly new
and puzzling. An actor's stronghold
is in his power to grasp the character
assumed and put himself in the place of
the role he takes. This it would
seem impossible for any actress to do
who takes the part of "Nora," and yet
Miss Tbropp was the doll, and in tbe
final scene she wa$ the woman.
The only objection which anyone
could have found to Miss Tbropp was
the fact that ber enunciation last night
seemed at fault, and as in the case of
Milton Noble's visit to our city, one
must strain every nerve to catch the
sense of the play. This was probably
due to tbe fact tbat she is used to play
ing in houses where the acoustic prop
erties are perfect.
In Mr. Montague she has the best of
support. As the indulgent, loving hus
band he was all that the part required;
while in the heavier acting, where he
feels he has been wronged and at the
same time assumes the part of the irate
man, goaded to destraction when he
realizes that his idol has fallen, he was
fully equal to the demands of the ccene.
Especially was be good in the scene
where the thought of sacrificing bis
honor, as well as his individuality,
seemed to overwhelm him.
While the other parts nreoubordinate,
they were e!l takfn, tbat of "Nels
Krogstad" by Mr. Folsom, who in the
end proves himself the most sacrificing
of the characters involyed, requiring
some clever acting, and being well done.
Tbe play was a good one, furnishing
its hearers food for thought, and not
merely a pastime. And yet at the same
time one cannot help wishing the
miracle had been of a different nature,
allowing the wife to remain with her
husband, and the mother love to pre

An Inexhaustible Supply cf Pure
Sulphate in Wyoming.
A Hew Iadaalry That Proanlae to
Make th Asnerle-aa Market
depeadvat of Fsrle
By the opening up of the vast, nat
ural soda deposits of Wyoming an
other industry is to be adoVd to the
rapidly growing list in which tbe
1'uited States can outatrip the world.
Nature's laboratory, which is working
underground, and without a pay roll,
is turning out an Inexhaustible sup
ply of pure sulphate of soda which ia
the base of a lare number of by-products
that are used in one form or an
other in almost every sort of manufac
ture and in every household in civiliza
tion. Nature's product is one stage
nearer the point of consumption than
is the manufactured article. Over 70
per cent, of the latter consumed in this
country is imported and practically all
cf the remaining 30 per cent, is made
in factories that are branches of the
foreign establishments. The quantity
thus far tuken from the deposits is not
sufficient to supply a small fraction of
the gluss makers of the Indiana gas
belt alone, though the latter can use
it at an immense saving over the man
ufactured and can turn cut a better
quality of glass. Tbe elimination of
he expensive processes of manufac
ture puts the native soda in a position
not only to command the American
markets, but ultimately to pay for ex
porting it to the very countries from
which the American supply is now coin
ing. Despite the fact that only a be
ginning has been made on the home
trade there is every indication that its
rise from an infant industry to a point
where it can command the world will
be very rapid. To accomplish this re
mit the native soda must supplant the
400,000 tons of soda ash used by the
window and plate glass makers of this
country each year, and then take care
of the immensely greater demands of
the baking powder, soap, saleratus,
washing crystal, sal 6oda concentrated
lye, pulp, glucose, smoke'es gunpow
der and match manufacturers, and also
the tanners, bleachers, woolen mill
men, dyers, packers, printers, pho
tographers, starch makers and a host
of other users outside of the medicinal.
All of these demands and immeasurable
quantities more can be supplied from the
three lakes or bods lying II miles south
west of Laramie, and which comprise
the bulk of the deposits, in workable
quantities, of the state. These depos
its lire known as Red lake. Track laki
and Hig lake, and ore fed by countless
springs which constantly replenish the
supply as fast as it is drawn upon.
These deposits contain 44 per cent, of
pure sulphate of soda, a trifle less than
54 per cent, of water and about two
per cent, of other matter, chiefly car
bonate of soda and chloride of sodium,
or common salt. All that is necessary,
it is said, to put the product on the
market is to eliminate the moisture. It
can be sold throughout America at an
immense profit, even at the lowest fig
ures ever quoted here, though the
a ranches of the foreign factories
lave frequently sold their output be
,ow the cost of production to freeze
out the small American establishments
that have been started in opposition to
them within the last 50 years.
The soda properties have always
proven immensely profitable, and groat
efforts have been made by the English
and German makers to keep compet
itors out of the field. The largest of
the English concerns, which also con
trols the largest concern in this coun
try, has paid dividends of 35 to 50 per
cent, to its shareholders ever since it
was organized. The American branch
pays even larger profits, but its shares
are closely held, and no information
concerning the profits ever reaches the
public. The base product of the arti
ficial article is salt or salt water, which,
after reduction to the form of sulphate
of soda, must be clarified by expensive
processes before it can be used for
many of the purposes for which it is
intended. Before it can be used for
making plnte glass the iron, which all
salt contain, and which the ammonif.
or leading artificial process does not
eliminate, must be removed by the in
troduction of one part of arsenic to nine
of sulphate. The arsenic alone cost
at the rate of $75 per ton. The native.
soda, having no impurities, makes a
much clearer as well as stronger and
tougher glass, and it is even claimed
that it is better than the French plnte.
The Laramie deposits, which are the
purest as well as the most accessible
in the state, passed into the control of
one of the largest firms of importers
of heavy cliemicai west of New York
several years iigo. and this firm recent
ly transferred its holdings to a Chicago
corporation, which is preparing to
vastly increase the outpu: by tlit erec
tion of a plant capable of turning out
1,200 tons of product per day. Tbe ex
treme limit of the plant now on the
ground is 150 tons per day.
