Washington, Aug. 17. As soon as
the reading of the journal of the senate
was completed,' Harris, on behalf of the
democratic steering committee, moved
the senator from California (White) be
appointed to the vacancy on the finance
committee caused by the death of Vance.
Chandler interposed an objection.
Harris made the point of order that
his motion was privileged because it
looked to organization.
Chandler remarked sarcastically that
it was a little .too late to begin the or
ganization of the senate. He called, at-
tention to the fact that the vacancy on
the finance committee had lasted for
months, and it was proposed now to fill
it at the very close of the session.
Harris declared hotly it was with pro
found astonishment be heard objection
from the other side. In the 18 years he
had been a member of that body, no
matter what party was in power, the
majority named at will members of the
several committees of the senate and no
voice was beard in objection. The
coarse of Chandler he condemned as
Chandler declared it came with ill
grace from Harris to condemn a request
made under the rules of which he (Har
ris) was such a master.
Then Hill got the floor and plunged
immediately into a criticism of the leg
islation rrhich the filling of the vacancy
was designed to expedite. So far as the
bills placing coal, iron ore and sugar on
the free list were concerned, he voted,
he said, for them when they were legiti
mately before the senate and was not
trying to escape from the record.
The conference report on the defi
ciency bill has been submitted to the
senate and agreed to. At 1 :40 the sen
ate adjourned nntil tomorrow.
Washington, Aug. 17. Senator Mur
phy offered a resolution in the senate to
day to the effect that there be no further

in view of Carlisle's letter. He 'asked
unanimous consent for its immediate

Washington, Aug. 17. The senate
finance committee met at 10 o'clock to
day to consider the free sugar and other
separate tariff bills. : The republican
members say they could not take the
responsibility of reporting these bills.
JThe republicans have four members of
the finance committee here, and as the

Pb-etkobia, South Africa, Aug. 17.
The rebellion of the Kaffirs is assuming
n alarming condition. The Transvaal
olice detatchment which has deen at
tempting to relieve the garrison at Aga-
he has been repulsed with serious loss.
jSmboldened by their success, the Kaffirs
pursued the retreating troops and st
acked the main column of the' Boer
forces. The Kaffirs were driven back,
but the advance of the column was re
tarded. From the Boer settlement all
along the Letaha river come reports of
severe fighting'between isolated parties
of retreating Boers and Kaffirs who are
burning Boer homesteads all along the
river. The Boers are fleeing before .the
Kaffirs' advance, taking all their portable
property; but large quantities - of -prov
isions and cattle have necessarily - fallen
into the hands of the Kaffirs. The latter
have murdered a number of Boers and
their wives and children, and the fiercest
feelings of the Boers have been aroused
against the rebels. In all the disturbed
districts mail and passenger coaches have
been stopped, the passengers killed,
coaches looted and destroyed, and mules
stolen. The Murcbison road is entirely
The Central American Republics.
Washington, Aug. 17. So far the
American ministers in Central America
have not advised the state department of
the movement for the combination of the
five small Central American republics
into one large nation. While such a com
bination would be welcome, it is felt it
is soarcely practicable because of the
personal jealousy of many of the self-
constituted leaders which led to the down
fall of the old confederation a quarter of
a century ago.
Republican Senatora Will Cauena.
Washington, Aug. 17. The republi
can senators will hold a caucus after the
adjournment of the senate today, and
consider the question of party action
with reference to the appointment of a
member of the finance committee and
the policy generally with reference to the
free sugar and other supplemental bills.
Oppoied to Porter'i Nomination.
Washington, Aug. 17. The com
mittee on judiciary has made an adverse
report to the senate on the nomination
of James D. Porter as United States
judge of the eastern and middle districts
of Tennessee. It is understood the op
position is based on the ground that
Porter lives in an outside district.
A. Silver Lead Ore Bill.
" Washington, Aug. 17. The ways and
means committee voted today to present
a fifth tariff bill making silver lead ore
free of duty. The Wilson bill made
these ores free, but the senate bill put a
duty of ?4 of a cent a pound on them.

London, Aug. 17. The Pall Mall Ga
zette says there is much dissapointment
in British yachting circles because of the
infrequent appearance of the Vigilant in
the Solent. That paper also states Gould

Members of the House Learing.
Washington, Aug. 7. There is hardly
a quorum of the house of representatives
in town. Members are leaving on every
train. . Most of - the democratic leaders
are remaining to make a quorum in case
of an unexpected emergency on the
tariff. ' . - - ' '
China Making a Loan.
London, Aug. 17 The is no doubt a
loan of XI ,500,000 will be raised here for
China on 4 per cent 30-year bonds.
Two-thirds of the loan will be payable
to China in silver. Some financiers
predict silver will go to 32d per ounce.
Bill to Deport Anarchists.
Washington, Aug. 17. The house
committee on judiciary today decided
favorably to report Senator Hill's bill
for the exclusion and deportation of alien
anarchists, which passed the senate.
Easier Than Arithmetic.
It is easier to remember things usu
ally if yoii know -what they mean. A
little boy could never remember even
about how long a cubit is till his father
told him the word was cubitus in Latin,
which means an elbow, and that the
measure called cubit was the distance
from a man's elbow to the end of his
middle finger. ''And how much is a
fathom?" asked the little boy. "Oh,
fathom comes from the two words, 'fat,'
which means, in the Aryan language,
to extend, and 'horn,' a man. A fath
om is the length of a man extended;
that is, when his arms are stretched
out On each ,side from the shoulders,
from tip to tip of his fingers. The foot
is an English word, and means just the
length of the foot of a full-grown man."

Deafneae Cannot be Cored
By local applications, as -they cannot
reach the - diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure Deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets
inflamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect bearing, and when it is entirely
closed Deafness is the result, and unless
the inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing bnt an in
flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (.caused by catarth)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars, free. ,
