New YtKK, Nov. IS. A special to the
Tribune from Waehingtonjaay: No plant

it it doubtful II any precedent can be

Precedent made in dealing n it h
former delegate from the territory of
I'tah are conctded not to apply to the
full Hedged representative whom Utah
a a state now lends to congref. Both
lieinncralic and Republican leaders are
tee LI rig some method ol dealing with the
KobfltS rare which will take it wholly
out of partisan politics. Undoubtedly
the fairest and most eatiefactory pro
cedure would lie to acknowledge the
legality of the V tali meaiber'tcreilentiula
and to refer hit disputed qualification!,
ai the constitution provides, to the tub- i
sequent judgment of the house.
A resolution to expel him on the
ground of hit polygstuon relations
would require a two-thirda vote, and in
securing the itiaj inly, the co-operation
of the two parties in the house would be
tn ire convincingly demonstrated than
in any irregolar effort to jungle him out
of hit eligibility on a point of order re
quiring only a majority vote. It I fH
by the more expeiicnced managers nn
both sides that the issue raised by Mr.
Koberta' election, to be met Hieclively,
should be met in a deliberate, dignified
and altogether regular wav.
Such Is the Kcportof General Mctbucu's
Battle at lastao.
I.OM.OS, Nov. 2S. A dispatch ha
been received here from Cieneral Duller
giving ft list ol casualties among the
troop! engaged in the battle ol Uraspan,
but which is now officially designated a
the battle ol Instan. It proves, at wa
anticipated, that the British tuccett wat
heavily bought. The lossee announced
today, added to the naval brigade catu
altiel previously notified, make a grand
total ol l'.'S, a the cost of General
Methnen' second battle.
I.OMMiN, Nov. 2S In general Methu
en' engagement with the Boer ftt In
stan the Yorkshires apparently bore,
with the naval brigade, the brunt ol the
lighting, a there were in addition to
three officers, forty-eight ol the rank
and file killed, wounded ftnd missing.
The fact that the list contained the casu
alties ol the Ninth I.sticor teem to dis
pose of the (ear that the cavalry wat
surrounded and captured, especially as
none of the lancers are reported misting.
Kiver and Harbor Committee.
V.'AntiTo.v, Nov. 30. Congressmen
are now busy slating the various
candidate lor positions on c .mmittee.
The indications are that cn the rivers
and harbors committee, the Interest ol
Pacific roast state will be represented
by either Congressman Thoinaa Ii.

Iimsell J. Waters, of Southern California.
Fall FitdiirtS Was Poor.
AaTottiA, Nov. 30. The lull fishing
season, which hnr just closed, ha been
.itiite as unsuccessful ai wa the spring
season, and the pack har been very
amall. It was expected that, because ol
the lateness of the spring run, which
was ovrti- a month later than utual, the
fall aeasjn would be a good one, but the
contrary haa proved true. Several
cannerica operated thronghunt the sea
son, among Iheio thee iiiibiue'i packing
house, but it la impossible an yet to get
Cgurei as to thu pack. The shortage of
the year's fiahiog will doubtlees create a
good market next year and price in
Kaitern and foreign market will be
higher than they were4his year.
There is more Catarrh in this section
of the country than all othe diseases put
together, and until the last few years
wa supposed to be Incurable. For a
great many year doctors pronounced it
a local diseaw, and prescribed local
remedies, and by constantly failing to
cure with local treatment, pronounced
it incurable. Science ha" proven catarrh
tobe a constitutional dieca?e, and there
fore require! constitutional treatment.

The American Troops Pushing Ahead
Washington, Nov. 21. General Olis'
advices to the war department today
show that the troops are piuhinv rapidly
ahead, and indicate that the demoraUz t
tion of the insurgent! is complete. Two
dispatches were received today. The first
related to the operations in the north
west part ol Lor on, and is aa follows :
"The following from the Northwest
Lnznn coast: Yonng left San Fernando
the '.'.'i l inst., w here Marsh' battalion
of the Thirty-third infantry arrived the
'J6:h, on which day Young wa at
Namacpacan, where he was supplied by
the navy gunboat Eamar. He marched
out next day. Tlio battlo-ship Oregon
landed 200 men at Vigan the 24th inst.
There was no opposition. The tailors
were welcomed by the inhabitant!. 1
lio'.ieve the Spanish and American
prisoners are still in the vicinity il
Bangued, guarded by a small insurgent
force. Reports from the northeast
indicate that 500 insurgent troops at
Bayombong, Nueva Viscsya province,
surrendered yesterday to Lawton's
troop. He advanced by both the San
Nicholas and Carranglan trails."
Millions (Jlren Away.
It ia certainly gratifying to the public
to know ol one concern in the land who
are not afraid to be generous to the
needy and fullering. The proprietors
ol Ir. King's New Ditc-jvery lor con
sumption, cough and colds, have given
away over ten million trial bottle of this
great medicine; and have the satisfac
tion of knowing it ha absolutely cured
thousands of hopeless case. Asthma,
bronchitis, hoarseness and all disease
ol the throat, chest and lungs are surely
cured by it. Call on Blakeley A Hough-
Republicans Hoping For a Clear-cut
Washingtos, Nov. 28. Republican
congressmen are hoping and praying lor
a clear-cut message, something that will
go straliiht to the heart ol the various
public question to be discussed. They
want a message that they ran stand by
and support with legislation. One of the
Republican leaders says:
"What the president outfit to do, tn
my judgment, is to announce ome
definite policy. The Democrat would,
I am sure, be only too glad to eeixe an
opportunity to cut loose Irotn the anti
Senator Palmer, who led the gold
Democrat In 1S1H, tay there will be no
ticket ol that kind next year, as gold
Democrat will vote rolldly against Bryan.
It take but a minute to overcome

" 'Mitchell, telegrapher, has just made
bis way out from Ltdysmith to Weener,
whence he sends the following message :
"On November 9, we beat back the Boer
with great loss to the enemy. Our total
casualties were remarkably small. There
were only eight men killed during the
siege by shells and in all battles, etc.,
only 100 men have been killed or
wounded. I left Ladysmith on the night
of November 29. Since November U no
attempt has been made to attack I-nly-mith

Although telegraph and railro.vd com
