WILL HOLD THE ISLANDS United States Will Not Part With tie PbiliDDines. NOT SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED 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 considered. 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. Spain's Greatest Need.

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 dominate.

WEEKLY CHEONICLK .NEW SODA DEPOSITS. An Inexhaustible Supply cf Pure Sulphate in Wyoming. A Hew Iadaalry That Proanlae to Make th Asnerle-aa Market depeadvat of Fsrle CMcma. 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. Cash la Hoar Cbeeke. All county warrants registered rtrior to June 1st, 1B15, will be paid at my office.
