who favored the Immediate paswiife of

the work at any time when it may be
found fcanlhle. This is common sense.
It will cot nothing to secure the pas

Councilman MoGror said: "Yes. I

Ihrouirh the legislature at once so that
we will be In shape when th? proper

may be ready next summer. We are
looking for great tilings this season,
and If we should want to build a sea
wall next fall and we fiul to get a
bill tnrough this legislature, we would
thon have to wait another two years
before vv could commence the work."
Mayor F. J. Taylor, when Interview
ed upon this subject, said: "On gen

When wv get in proper shape to carry
It to a Kiicc.isfiil Issue, 1 say go ahead,

BuHinerw Throughout the Country
Growing Belter Each Day.
New York. January 15. R. G. Dun
ft CV.'s Weekly Review of Trade will
The greatest growth and prosperity
the country had ever seen came sud
denly In 1879 after several months of
disappointment because the specie re
sumption had not yet brought the
benefits expected. It takes time for
new confidence to appear through eas
ier money markets; larger orders, re
suming mills, expanding employment
and enlarged distribution to the results
which make still greater lasting gains
possible. Suoh gradual and steady Im
provement has been In progress for
more than two months. The out-put
of pig-Iron has gained 12.3 per cent In
December and 41.6 per cent since Oc
tober 1. The money markets find a
atwuly increase In demand and com
mercial loans. Additional works have
gone Into operation each week In Jan
uary. and the working force Is larger
than at any time for six months. The
bet of all. there Is so little crazy ex
citement that It may be ascribed to
the dellU'i-ate Judgment of the ablest
and mowt prudent men In business.

INDIAN'S IN WASHINGTON.
Idaho Delegation Call on the Secretary
Washington, January IS. The Ban
nocks and 8 hoe hone Indian delegation
from Idaho had an Interview with the
commissioner of Indian affairs today.
They were sent by their tribe to In
quire about the proposition of tne gov
ernment looking to the disposition of
their surplus lands. A committee ap
pointed for the purpose is negotiating
with them, but the Indians, uncertain
of the authority of the committee,
wanted to see the Washington officials
before taking further step. They tried
to Interpose a plea for the removal of
their agent, charging cruelty based on
hlai Jailing several of them a year ago.
This was disposed of by a refusal to
consider that question now.
The Indian were advised that It was
to tneir interest to pen sucn lanu as
they do mK need to the government
and that the cisnml.islon was acting
for the great father and for the In
dians' best Interests. The delegates re
frained from committing themselves
by a definite response and said they
would advise thWr cople what to do.
The delegation called upon Secretary
Francis this afternoon and expect to
see the president tomorrow.

necessary, to hereby appropriated."
The Senatorial Contest Goes Merrily
Springfield, Ill.i January 15. The sen
atorial situation was somewhat com
plicated by the announcement of the
candidacy of Congressman John A.
Hopkins, of Aurora, who wired from
Washington that he would be here
Saturday. Mr. Hopkins' supporters
claim that all the warring factions will
unite on him and that his selection
is practically assured, even In advance
of his arrival on the ground. The sup-
Dorters of the other candidates are
equally modest in their claims, ail ex
pressing unlimited and serene confi
dence In their ultimate victory. Ex
Congressman Mason and Congressman
Ixirimer both announced tonight that
they were absolutely certain of re
ceiving the nomination on the first bal
lot. Allerton. Hitt and Carr are posi
tive they will be chosen In the first
seven ballots. The postponement of
the Joint caucus to Monday had added
uncertainty to the situation and the
belief among the "unattached" pro
phets b that the outcome will be a
hotly contented caucus race with a dark
horse winner at the finish.

tomorrow will say:
The Cuban policy of th McKlnley

rially from that which has been laid
down by President Cleveland and his
secretary of state. This statement Is
based on remarks made to a reporter
by the man who mill be the premier
of the next administration. Senator
John Hherman. at the Union depot this
evening. This veteran statesman was
on his way to Washington from Can
ton. After stating that his position
In the next cabinet had been deter
mined. Senator Sherman said In an
swer to a question:
"I think the United States govern
ment should not Interfere with the
Cuban war either to aid In Its settle
ment or to do anything which would
make the peacegul government of the
island a charge on this country. I
think Canovas has outlined the pro
gram of governmental reforms which
will be applied both in Spain and Cuba.
Thewe reforms will give Cubans prac
tical autonomy and will. I hope, set
tle the question."

GREAT SUFFERING FROMC9LD
Zero Temperature and a Driving Gal
I-ave Little Hope for the Lives of
Milwaukee, January 15. An editor's
special to the Evening Wisconsin from
Marinette, Wis., says:
There are between thirty and forty
fishermen on an Ice floe moving out
Into the lake."
At 12:30 p. m. a strong gale sprung
up and the Ice In the bay suddenly and
without warning began to move out.
Within ten minutes there was a wide
space between the Ice and the shore.
The fishermen are running hither and
thither Trt "the moving Ice. signalling
for help. At S o'clock two boats were
manned and an attempt will be made
to tail with the wind and reach the
moving Ice. The Ice broke about ift
mile and a half from shore and Is now
over four miles away. The worst fea
ture Is that the sheet of Ice which is
taking the men away averages no more
than three Inches thick.
Tonight nine men are clinging to
block of ice a few rods square that Is
being driven out of Green Bay inb
Lake Michigan by a fierce southerly
gale. The wind is blowing thirty mile
an hour and carries aero temperature
and an occasional snow squall. The
men are fishermen clad only In tns
none too heavy clothing worn while
tending their nets, and unless the Ice
floe has been blown against Chambers
Island or Green Island, there Is little
probability that they will live through
