Josef Hofmnnn said: "In order that the Pianola shall produce the truly artistic It
must have the tru artist behind It." That is very true: but one docs not need
to be a. Hofmann or a PaderewskI to obtain truly artistic results with the Pianola.
"We all have Intent musical talents, but few of us have the time, opportunity or
patience to develop the manual dexterity that at one time was necessary to give
these talents expression. The Pianola has done for us what long years of weary
work have done for Hofmann and PaderewskI. It has given us complete control
over the keyboard of a piano.

PROSPECT FOR MITCHELL'S BILL
"Would Probably Go Through If There
AVas Any Possibility of Democrats
ot Voting Against All Amend
ment; Canal Legislation.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 10. There Is a
probability that Senator Mitchell's first
proposition reducing the rates on Philip
pine Imports coming Into the United
States to JO per cent of the DIngley rates
may be adopted. Senator Foraker, with
his more radical proposition, may lute
started the movement which will rtsult
In a compromise on Senator Mitchell's
At present. Republican members of the
Philippine committee are very much op- j
posed to any further reduction whatever,
but the sentiment of the country has
been growing so strong in favor of treat
ing the Islands with more liberality that j
even Senator Forakcr's rather radical j
proposition seems to meet with a great j
deal of favor among Republicans.
Senator Mitchell would be quite confi
dent of carrying through his original
proposition with the support of men like '
Foraker and others that arc gathered
around him, if there was any probabil
ity of the Democrats voting for these
amendments. The impression seems to
prevail that Democratic Senators will vote
against any amendments to perfect that
bill, and will vote against the bill Itself
which makes It difficult for any consider
able number of Republicans like Foraker
and Mitchell, who believe in showing fa
vor to the Filipinos, to accomplish this
reduction. A member of the wa's and
means committee who voted to Impose the
full Dingley rates stated today that he
would work to concur in the Senate
amendment if it should provide for the
Mitchell rate of 50 per cent. Should by
any chance the Foraker amendment of 25
per cent prevail, the bill would go into
conference, and Senator Mitchell Is confi
dent that this proposition would then be
Not Readj to Trikc l'p Canal BUI.
Leaders of the Senate who were con
sulted today concerning canal legislation
say that the Republican majority is not
yet ready to consider the bill In the
Senate, and prefers that It shall not be
presented for some time. Just what the
object is, is hard to ascertain, but a de
termination seems to have been reached
not to allow anything whatever to Inter
fere with the Philippine tariff bill now
under discussion. The debate is being
carried on by the Democratic side almost
exclusively, but several Republican Sen.
ators have shown a desire to talk, ar.d
for this reason the managers are forcing
the bill forward, and are opposing any
plan which will bring another topic like
the Nicaragua Canal bill Into the Sen
ate until the Philippine bill passes.
Senator Mitchell is of the opinion that
the testimony of the Isthmian Canal
Commission, which has been brought out
before the committee on Inter-occanlc
canals. Is tending to strengthen the Nica.
ragua project and to show that the Pan.
ama Canal is yet a very doubtful
Cubans Still Pressing Their Claims.
Cubans arc still pressing their claims
for concessions, and It Is already an
nounced that Senator Foraker will offer
an amendment to some bill probably the
war revenue reduction measure granting
concessions to Cuba of 50 per cent. This
is double that which has been believed
possible, but the Senate might go to that
extent in favor of Cuba. Annexation senti
ment is growing, but the desire Is to have
the request come from the Cubans.
Signal Victory for .Mitchell.
Senator Mitchell won a signal victory
with his amendment to the sundry civil
bill, directing the Secretary of the Treas
ury to investigate and pay the claims of
Oregon, California and Nevada, growing
out of the equipping of troops during the
War of the Rebellion. This amendment
was attached to the bill In the Senate,
and was retained by the conference com.
mlttee. Under it the State of Oregon will
receive something like $340,003.
Memorials for Oregon.
Senator Mitchell today offered a Joint
resolution proposing an amendment to the
Constitution extending the right of suf
frage to women. He also presented two
memorials of citizens of Oregon protest
ing against the enactment of legislation
for leasing of public grazing lands.
Some Offices Drain "Would Accept.
There 1b not likely to be any action
with regard to the Marshalshlp or Col.
lectonshlp In Washington until the Presi
dent returns to Washington. Meantime
the recommendation of Adjutant-General
Drain, for the latter position. Is causing
some comment. It was ascertained to
day that General Drain, while here, did
not disclose to any member of the dele
gation, save Senator Foster, his hopes
for a local position; but he shrewdly se
cured from each a promise of support If
the President should offer him any place
In the future. General Drain did Inform
members of the delegation that he would
like an appointment of Controller of the
Currency or First Assistant Secretary of
the Treasury, positions that he expected
to become vacant, but for which General
Drain has no chance of appointment.
Representative Jones said today he
thought General Drain would make an ex
cellent Collector, If he is appointed to
the position now filled by Heustls.

The attention of Representative Moody
was recently called to the fact that the
Indian ponies on the Umatilla reservation

and by their association with other horses
and cattle on the public ranges are rapid

says he Is without authority to stamp out

Indian Commissioner today ordered an In.

that financial reasons had anything to do
with the government's decision to with
draw the British troops from Wel-Hal-Wel.
But when he was asked to publish

some of the reports were confidential. The
greatest Interest was manifested in the

before final action will be authorized.
In calling the general committee to or
der. Chairman II. W. Scott said the busi
ness before the body was to begin consid
eration of a plan for the monument, or .to
take steps with that end In view. Though
the monument to be selected might de
pend somewhat on the site to be chosen,
he did not think the site would vitally af
fect the design of the monument. He had
no special design in view. He had books
showing a large number of those erected
on the Gettysburg battlefield, none or
which would exactly fill the Idea In view
for the Oregon Volunteers, he thought,
because more money would be available
for this monument than was spent on
those at Gettysburg. He hoped there
would be $20,000 for the Oregon monu
ment. While the pictures of the Gettysburg
monuments were being examined General
Summers moved for the appointment of
the two .special committees on site and on
design, and the motion was carried. The
comm.ttees were named after the meeting
