"Washington, D. 0., April 28, 1904.
Tl.in !;aa been a busy week. The re
Sluicing appropriation bills have slid
noteless I y along in Senate and House

of other important matters. Both ma
jority and minority leaders now an

one of the shortest regular sessions ever
known, excepting each as terminate by
law on March 4th.
The House on Tuesday after an ex
cited discussion , passed the Statehood
bill providing for the admission of Okla
homa, i nd of Arizona and New Mexico
us Arizona. There was heated opposi
tion to the measure and it is not thought
that it will this season get through the
tisuate where it made its appearance
yesterday Democrats protected and
iraged against it in the House and voted
aag 'Hist it without a sirgle iruant, but
the Republicans, though several of them
spoke against it, voted eolidiy lor it,
and, Mr. Williams said, "jammed it
(through for party put poses." General
Jrosvenor spoke against it but lined up
ms a party man when the roll was called.
tot two days now the Senate has heen
discussing messure to provide more of
fice room. The proportion to erect a
marble palace for such purposes diagon
ally opposite the Senate on U street
meets with much favor and will prob
ably be carried out. There is a itrorg
tendency to turn down the proyiBion ol
the sundry civil bill by which the House
ordered an externum of the vast front of
tire capitol. It is denounced as desecra
tion and sacrilege by Senators Hale,
Bacon, Teller, Bailey and others, who
inaiat that the antique beauty of the
facade shall not be defaced. Emphasiz
ing the need of more spacious quarters,
Mr. Bailey affirmed that Senator Berry

which provides that all clerks shall be
dismissed at seventy years of age, after
June 30, iyi)7. A great cry ol pain and

Jane Elizabeth White, after a linger
ing illness of several months died in this
city Haturd iy . Mrs. White was born at
Providence, Illinois August 6 1851,
being the oldest child of Edward P. and
Jane C. Bands. When she was three
years of age her parents moved, going by
wagrntothe then new state of Iowa,
settling first in Marshalltown and later
at Staceyville, Mitchell county, wheie
on April 28, 1877 she was married to
Frederick F. Whits. Immediately after
they came to Oregon first stopping a few
days in Oregon City, then ia Albany till
October ot the same year when they re
timed to this place which has since
heen their home. Two children were
born to them, Jean M. and Ina C, the
latter of whom alter a brief life of eight
years passed to the other side.
Soon after coming here Mrs. White
united with the Congregational church
in which faith she had been reared, and
ever siuce has been one of its most con
sistent, active and untiling members.
For twenty-three of the twenty-six
years of her membership she has been
the church organist and much of the
time director of the choir. Her ability
iu this line made her iu demand in many
of tbj musical functions of tbe city ; aud
to no object having a Christian, benevo
lent or charitable purpose as its aim, was
she ever known to decline her help. On
this account she will be missed not alono
in her own church, but by a hos of
friends in all the churches and out of the
churches, for whose gayer hours hei
touch upon the keys had a voice of glad
ness and a smile, and into whose darker
musings it glided with a mild and gentle
sympathy which stole away their sadness
ere they were aware.
Mrs. White was a member of Pioneer
chapt er of the order of Eastern Star, and
of the Kuights and Ladies of Security.
She is survived by her husband Fred
erick F. White, her daughter Jean M.
White, her mother, Mrs. JaneC. Hands,
two sisters and four brothers as follows:
Mrs Wm. A. White, Mrs. James L.
Swafford ; Clarence A. Ernest P., aud

fact that the farmers are at least two
weeks behind with their work and could

hired a man to work in his place, and
walked eight miles to attend the meet
ing. Many of the candidates were

the opposition never have to bother
themselves about, aud which they never
have to account for. Chairman Eby
annnunc d that he would keep accurate

care, would take and keen for inspection
