Washington, March 2. The senate
today passed the bill providing for the
settlement of the affairs of the Five
Civilised Tribes. Under the guise of
considering the bill, the senate spent

Thursday, March I.
Washington, March 1. The discus
sion of the railroad rate question was
continued in the senate today by IVd-
liver, who spoke in supjnirt of the
IVillier-IIepburn bill. He said that the
bill was intended merely to supplement
the existing interstate commerce la
and contended for its validity from a
consittutional point of view, predicting
that government ownership of the rail
roads would be forced upon the coun
try if congiess did not meet the present
demand for regulation. IVdliver was
not questioned, and, when he con
eluded, the remainder of the day was
devoted to the bill providing for the
settlement of the aff.iirs of the Five
Civiliied Trills of Indians after the
termination of their tribal relations.
Washington, March 1. The house
today passed the army appropriation
bill, also the Foraker bill providing for
the marking of the graves of Confed
erate dead buried in the North. The
discussion developed a unanimity of
sentiment in favor of marking Confed
eral graves and, as the bill had re
ceived favorable action by the military
committee, it was brought in by Prince
and passed unanimously, amid ap
plause on both sides of the house.
The army bill as passed carries some
thing more than $69,000,000.
The house agreed to a senate joint
resolution, which continues the tribal
government of the Five Civiliztd TrileB
in the Indian Territory until the prop
erty of the Indians shall be disposed of.
Wednesday, February 28.
Washington, Feb. 28. The details
of the provisions of the army appropri
ation bill occupied the house of repre
sentatives throughout the day.
Throughout members of the appropri
ation committee, headed by Chairman
Tawney, were in controversy with
Chairman Hull and the members of
the military committee. Each contest
was an effort either in the direction of
reducing or restricting the amounts
carried in the bill. In some cases the
appropriations committee was success
ful, and in others the military com
Washington, Feb. 28. The treaty
between the United States and the Do
minican Republic, under which the
former undertakes to collect and ilis
burse the customs revenues of the lat
ter, was reported to the senate in exec
utive session today by Senator Lodge
While the treaty was given a place
on the senate legislative calendar by
the report made today, it will not be
called up until after the railroad bill
has been disposed of, and even then it
may go over for some time.
F'or three hours, lacking three min
utes, today, Foraker held the attention
of the senate while he read a carefully
prepared speech on the railroad rate
question. His speech was a protest
against any general legislation, on the
theory that the existing Elkins law
could be so extended as to make it an
swer all the requirements. He did
not fail, however, to point out what
he considered the defects of the
Hepburn-Dollirer bill, and he made
the declaration more than once that it

by a large attendance, both on the
floor and in the galleries, and at ita

Washington, Feb. 27- When the
senate takes a vote on the Smoot case,
it ia quite likely that Senator Heyburn,
of Idaho, will vote to unreal Mr.
Smoot, notwithstanding it has always
been understood that Mr. Heyburn was
a Mormon 8ymraimzer in ins own
state, and was elected by Mormon
votes in the Idaho legislature. Be
hind this apparent change of front on
the part of Senator Heyburn liea an
interesting story that developed during
the course of his now famous speech

No Aid for Congo.
Washington, Feb. 27. The attitude
of the American government towards
the conditions in the Congo Free State
and the American desire for some plan

to Representative Denby, of Michigan.

speech in support ot the bill by Hop
kins, during the course of which Halu
suggested that the territories were not
prepared for statehood, and suggested
that their admission be deferred.

ARMY IS READY.
Details Arranged to Send 26.000
Men to China.
Washington, March 2. It Is possible
today to give for the first, time the di
tails of the preparations which the
War department Is making for au In
vasion of China. In case of necessity,
which to military minds seems iminl
neut, it is the intention of the goxern
ment to dispatch 20,001) regulars from
the l intel Nlates to join a Philippine
force of 5,000 men for au expedition to
the Chinese empire.
Hie troons for the Oriental service
have been selected, the posts from
which they will be taken are named
in the plans and the proper allotment
has been made among the various
branches of the service. Not only has
this been done by the olllcers who have
been working out the invasion scheme,
but they have perfected a plan for the
distribution of the troops which will
remain in the United States, so that
they may be available in case of home
The scheme of invasion as at present
contemplated is with the view princl-
pally ot a combination ot the Ameri
can forces with those of other powers,
but a subsidiary arrangement has been
made to meet the Hssibiiily that the
United States will be forced to act

Uft within the Isirders of the United
States, for ll is the Intention of the
department to send Its full force into
the field, save only the infantrymen
doing duty In the Philippines.
As stated in previous dispatches, the
officers of the ar College have est!
mate! that 100,000 men will le nces
sary to make an invading force strong
enough to conduct a successful cam
paign against Pekin. If by an unfor
tunate trend of events it should become
necessary that America act alone, there
would be no attempt at the outset tc
reach the Forbidden City. Tentative
plans, in case America goes alone into
the tight, contemplate a joint army and
navy expedition to seize one of tl
greater coast towns in China. This
might or might not have an effect on
the Chinese government, but, because
of recent events, it would seem that
the Chinese governments is not all
powerful in the control of its affairs,
and as a conscotienee such a scirure
might be of little avail, save possililv
for indemnity purposes.

"In the matter of rural carriers' pay,
it can be authoritatively stated that

On the contrary, the department has

In the recent readjustments to com
plete county service, the number of
routes reduced in mileage has exceeded
the number increased. These condi
lions have resulted in lowering the pay
of the carriers somewhat. I'ntil the
service is completed throughout the
country, the average of carriers' salaries
based upon present legal allowance will
naturally fluctuate from time to time
as routes are increased or decreased in
length. Under the so-called new rural

of 34,!i.'18 routes installed up to Febru

These discontinuances were mostly due
to readjustments in order to complete

Washington, March 2. President
Roosevelt today issued a proclamation
imposing the rates of duties provided

imports from Germany in return for
Germany's concession of minimum

The articles and rate of duty named in
the president's proclamation are the
same as those now in force, which

but for the recent action of the German
government in giving this country the
benefit of ita minimum tariff.

RUN OUT AMERICAN SILVER.
Canadian Banks Collect and Deport It
at a Good Profit.
New Westminster, M. C, March .'1.
A clean sweep of American silver from
the I lominion of Canada has been de
vised by the Dominion government.
and the banks of Canada, on arrange
ment with the government, put the law
into force today. The banks are to
collect all the American silver, in all
about f'iOD.OOO, and transmit the sumo
to the agency for the Bank of Montreal
at New York, receiving gold in ex-
chango. This amount will then be re
placed in circula'ioii by Canadian coin,
while on the f Hiio.odo tl, hanks w ill
get three-eighths of one per cent, and
also on all shipments made hereafter
the percentage will be the same.
With the silver market in the present
condition, the Dominion government
should make about $4110.000 mi tln
leal, besides giving I he bank a fair
profit and also putting into circulation
much Can nd inn silver that has been
held in check by the American money.
On several occasions in former years tbe
hanks have endeavored to terminate
the circulation of American silver by
placing a discount on it, but it was
found that, in spite of this, the coin
was in circulation, but never went to
However, there will now be no dis
