Washington, March 27. The house
committee on interstate commerce to

absolute power on the secretary of sg

Carolina senator discusting various
ijii.'Mtions, Tillman made a fpecial in
ipiiiy coin eriilng the status of his reso
lution relative to the use of national
hank funds in politics, and incidentally
spoke of Iiistiict Attorney Jerome's
recent utterances and of Judge Humph
rey's decision in the beef trust rases,
declaring In the latter matter that the
decision against the attorney general
had merely reaped what lie had sown
in the case of ex-Secretary Paul Mor
ton. Fornker defended Judge Humphrey
and Tillman declared that he had not
meant to attack the Judge, hut the law.
McCntnher picked innumerable tl ws in

to meet the demands of the public.
He said, however, he would vote for
the hill if properly amended.
Washington, March 27. The house

emH)wer the printing committees of
the two executive bodies to fix the

oill was sent to conference.
Washington, March 20. There was
a hint in the senate today at an effort
to fix a time for a final vote on the
railroad bill, hut it win surrounded
by so much circumspection .and doubt
that no pred.ction as to the tune would
lie (untitled. Tillman stated that he
would hrinu the matter up tomorrow
and, unless objection was ln:ide, be

. Washington, March 27. The house
today passed thrwe of the six hills au
thorizing the Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Pnul railroi.d to . bridge nttvigable
streams between Chamberlain, S. D.,
and Puvet sound. Strange to say, the
three Washington bills introduced by
Cushnian were not passed, because
Ciishman, who is a member of the
eoihniittee to which they were re
ferred, was not on hand to see that
they were reported or call them up in
the house for passage. The billa will
no doubt go through.

$140,520,581 in 1005.
"This rapid growth In trade relations
with Canada," says the bulletin, "in
especially interesting in view of the
varying condition! to which commerce
with Canada has been subjected. Dur
ing the period from 1855 to 1800 a re
eiprocity treaty was in force between
Canada and the United States, but in
the the latter year it was determined,
so that commerce between the two
countries was unaffected by Special
trade arrangement until April, 1898,
when the United States was placed at a
sligtit disadvantage as compared with
the United Kingdom, product! from
that country entering the Dominion of
Canada being admitted, by special ar
rangement, at a reduction of 12 per
cent of the tariff levied on Import!

"August 1, 1808, the reduction of

per cent, an.l on July 1, 1000, was still
further increased to per cent.

MISERY OF STARVING.
Japanese Live on Flour Mixed With
Straw and Weeds.
Tokio, March 27. The misery and
suffering iu the famine district has
been slightly relieved by the prompt
and liberal aid from foreign sources
and the abatement of the rigors ot
winter. The local authorities are try
ing to provide work for the ablebodied,
but the extent of the work is inade
quate, and tens of thousands are still
on the verge of starvation.
' Many parent! are parting with their
children, sending them to the already
crowded Okayaraa orphanage. Several
children are quartered at the Ueyno
railway station in this city. Among
them was a girl 0 years old. who was
found treasuring a package of dirty old
newspapers. On examination the pack
age was found to contain a postal card,
w ith the address of the parents of the
child, who had been told to mail the
card upon her arrival at her destina
tion. The severity of the suffering un
dergone by the children is clearly de
picted in the faces of those who are
compelled to part from their homes,
where the food consists of flour mixed
with straw and weeds. The mixture is
beaten flue, forming a paste, which
contains only 25 per cent actual food
The government has remitted the
lowest tax in the famine district, hut
this will not aff 'rd immediate relief.
The liberal contributions from Ameri
cans are already effective, an.l the re
lief in the form of food and clothing is
commanding the heartiest apprecia
tion. Another appeal for aid is presenterd
by the sufferers from the earthquake
in Formosa, hundreds of whom are
homeless. The local government is
busy providing food, caring for the in
jured, and recovering and removing
corpses, several hundred of which are
b iried under the debris.
San Jacinto in Danger.
I.o8 Angeles, March 27. A dispatch
to the Times from San Jacinto, Cal ,
says: Raging down its course in the
maddest fury known in 25 years, the
San Jacinto river threatens great dam
age to the town of Sau Jacinto, to the
extensive ranch'ng regions near by and
to many other places down the valley.
Bridges have been washei away, lands
have leen Hooded, and it has been only
with the greatest difficulty that, the
waters have been prevented from
sweeping through the mam street of
San Jacinto and entailing heavy loss.
Ship Afire Hits Rocks.
St. Johns, N. F., Mirclr27. After
being in peril from (ire at sea and man

WORKMEN HAVE NARROW ESCAPE
North Platte River Tears Away Big
Diversion Dam, Bridgq and
Caper, Wyo., March 20. The North
Platte river has been rising at an
alarming rate during the past 4H hours,
due to the rapid melting of snow of the
previous week. The great diversion
dam at Alvova, erected by the Reclam
ation service as a temporary structure
to divert the waters of the river while
the I'athfinder darn is being built, has
been washed away, and its loss will
seriously interrupt the completion of
the governrunt enterprise.
Although the heavy rains of the last
few days has caused much apprehension
anting residents of this part of Wyom
ing, none were prepared for the over
throw of such a piece of engineering as
the huge dbin. When the waters swept
through the immense masonry, many
workmen barely escaped wi.h their
lives. The dam had been built at a
cost of nearly $100,000.
The steel bridge built by the govern
ment six miles below the darn at Path
finder was also carried away. Small
cabins, barns and property of all de
scriptions are floating down the swollen
stream, which is spreading over the
lowlands and causing great loss to
stockmen and ranchmen. Miles upon
miles of the lowlands are flooded, and
it is feared much stock is drowned.
A report from Lander says that 3,000
sheep belonging to Charles S tuther,
which were stmt in a large shed, were
drowned and swept away.

Sums of Insurance Money.
New York, March 20. On a charge
that bis connection with the contribu
tion of $ 18,702.50 from the funds of
the New York Life Insurance company

Perkins, a member of the firm cf J. P.
Morgan Co., and until recently first
vice preeident of the New York Life In
surance company, was arrested today
on a warrant issued by City Magistrate
Moss. When a detective went to Berve
the warrant upon Mr. Perkins, he
found that a writ of habeas corpus had
already been obtained from Jastice
Greenhaum, of the State Supreme
ciurt, and the matter was immediately
taken out of the hands of the magis
trate. Mr. Perkins appeared before
Justice Greenbum and, at the request
of his counsel, the hearing was ad
journed until tomorrow. Mr. Perkins
was paroled in the custody of his per
sonal attorney, Lewis A. DelafielJ.
GREAT SMELTER BURNED.
Immense Plant in Wyoming Destroyed
When About to Start.
Grand Encampment, Wyo., March
20. The great smelting, concentrating
and electric and steam power plant of
the Penn-Wyoming Copper company
whs practically destroyed by fire today,
entailing a loss estimated at $300,000,
insurance half that amount. The
smelter building was saved after a hard
fik'ht by the fire department. The or
igin of the fire is a mystery.
The plant had been closed down for
the winter on account of the deep sno
and improvements under way. Prepa
rations were on foot to resume next
The fire will bring the business to a
standstill for inon.hs. The Penn-Wyoming
company handled the copper ores
of a large part of the Encampment dis
trict in addition to the ores from its
own mine, the Rudefha.
Legislates Out Officers.
Albany, N. Y , March 20. The in

passed in the senate unanimously. The
bill as passed by the senate was re
ported to the assembly late in the af
ternoon and was substituted for t he
identical assembly hill, which was on
the order of their reading. This will
probably bring it up for final passage i
tomorrow, and there is little doubt that i
it will be passed without material op-1
position and g't at once to the governor
for liia approval.

In view of the attitude of certain of

Washington during the past few years,
the following rule nnd regulations,
to le itdd.il to the 2.31 4.." 70 already
promulgated for the guidance of gov
ernment clerks In Washington, are
No government clerk shall eat choc
olate eclairs or sweet jtotato pie for
lunch, those articles of food having a
soporific effect and tending, therefore,
to injure the value of the government
unit's afternoon labors.
Every government clerk shall be re

his salary and submit satisfactory
proof that he has done the same when
so called upon.
. The secretary or n!stnnt swrrorj?
of a department shall have the prlvl

at each clerk's wad, of ascertaining
how much each clerk Is spending, how
much he Is saving, how he Is saving
It, where he Is saving It, how much he
Is In debt.
Any government clerk whose breath
smells of ginger jxip, Kirsaparilla, or
any other Injurious and deleterious
compound ujion his return to his of
fice from lunch shall tie Instantly dis
missed for gross and habitual drunk
enness. Gray-haired government clerks shall
henceforth be required to dye their
hair black, as It Is undesirable that
there shall be anything old or musty
looking around the government depart

clerks are hereby defined to mean:
Anything they think they can get.
SlruKulo and Itetvurd of Stasr.
The stage Is like no other profession
in the world. There are no prescribed
courses of study, no regular text-looks,
arid no diplomas, except the applause of
t.udiences, nnd this is an uncertain
quantity. Aliove all else It Is n pro
lession lu which Individuality counts
for nearly everything, yet that same in
d'vlduality has to be sunk completely
that artistic success may be attained,
paradoxical us this statement may
Thorn-strewn is the path of one ar
tistically Inclined In this profession.
An, mere Is so much to overcome so
many heartbreaking disappointments to
endure! In other professions one learns
his lessons, and a sutliclent uuniltcr of
lessons learned means proficiency. With
the actress it is very, very much differ
ent. There Is no end to the study, the
lessons of greatest value are learned
through trials, and many earnest ef
forts often prove to be but so much
time wasted. Hundreds fail where one
succeeds; the selfish trample onward
over Hie meek ; the modest and unas
suming seldom rise above the foot of
the ladder. lSut, with nil this In mind,
I can still feel that the dramatic profes
sion Is more than worth while. Great
as the struggle, the reward is commen-sii-nto.
For many reasons n woman
may attain greater fame, greater suc
cess, and greater Intellectual heights
through being an actress than would
