Feminine organiialiona re calling the history of three centuries have graced tbe hall and saloons of the city and receptions to the Daughter of the American Revolution, the Children of the American Revolution, the Woman's Relief Corps, the National Council of Woman, the Woman Suffra gist and finally the Amoekeag Veteran of New Hainpshiie have keen tbe order of the day. The latter is not, of course, a feminine organixalion but a large delegation of ladies accompanied th d8oendent of the revolutionary wars riors and the reception given them was one of the most enjoyable of the week. The dramatic performance and the lecture ou Kin Lear, both for the benefit of charitable institutions, came off with great eclat and a consideiable sum of money was raised tor the worthy puriosei for which the affair were given. One of the minor affair of tbe week was the appearance before the judiciary committee of the house of a delegation headed by Mr Carrie Chapman Catt and ber able conaooura of the Wouiau's Suffrage convention. They presented strong argument fur female suffrage aud drew roseate picture of the purill cation of political tn.-tuoda which would follow the enfranchisement of them' elves aud their sisters. On the follow iug dv the Woman' Relief .Corp attempted to elect a local president and was obliged to take (our ballots the first three thrown out because the number ol vote exceeded the number of dele gate. Some of tbe ungallant members of the judiciary committee were iudulg ing in many jokes at the good ladies' expense yesterday and pointed to the ballot box stuffing as I lie inevitable result of female suffrage. Saturday was celebrated as a holiday in Washington by everyone but the in ueiaugauie senators who held a session to discuss the Philippine revenue bill which will come to a vole at four o'clock today and is now being debated under the fifteen minute rule. Some sensational sessions o! the senate have been held during thi bill. S.uator Palteison, although protesting that he was not a Catholic, declared that were the Filipinos Protest nt Christiana, the American people never would have submitted to th treatment accotded to those islands. He further declared that Ciovurnor Taft't state ment were unreliable, biased and slanderous to the Filipino character. Iu an able speech Senator Spooner de fended the governor aud denounced the statement of Senator Patterson, The speech of the senator of Wisconsin was a brilliant effort and will be classed as one of the finest argumonts this con gress has thus far hoard. As soju as the vote on the measure is taken this alternoon, the senate will receive Prince Henry aud tbe individual senators will be presented to him. Among the earlier events in the week was the pas sage of the permanent census h"l, sent up (run the bouse, and the ratification of the treaty by which the Danish West Indies become a possession of the United States. The bouse of representatives has been occupied with the Indian affairs bill which passed on Friday. There was a large amount of routine business con nected' with the bill which made its passage a laborious and tedious affair, During it consideration the proceedings of the bouse were sadly lacking in brilliancy. The real interest in the bouse during the past week, however, has not been centered in the procedure ou the fl'jor of the chamber but in the private room ol the ways and means committee where the republican mem ber have been wrestling with the ques tion of reciprocity with Cuba. As the result of a conference with the president Mr. Payne, the chairman, has been won over to the side of Cuba and even General (irosvenor has weakened. When I spoke to him on the subject some lime ago, "Preposterous, prepos terous," was all I could get him to say, but when I asked him of the prospects on Friday be said, "1 cannot talk. We will have to do something, I suppose, but I do not feel in a position to say anything further on the subject." Mr. Tawney, the republican "whip," whom I saw after the conference on Friday, said, "I have not weakened at all, 1 adhere to uiy original position that 1 will vole lor nothing that will in any way injure an American industry and that's all there is to it." Mr. Long, of Kansas, brought consternation to the opponents of concessions to Cuba by declaring ia favor of a 40 per cent reciprocal reduction. In stating his reasons he declared that the sugar beet production was not a natural industry lor ttie American larmurs, that It gave employment to women and childrto and cheap labor generally, but was "too picayunisb" a form of agriculture ever lo appeal to the American conception of the farming profession. That a bill to some extant favorable to Cuban in terest will be reported is, however, the general belief of the members of the boose. Thursday marked the publication of President Roosevelt's decision iu the Schley case. There was nothing new in tbe deductions of th president and public opinion is as diverse at hereto fore, although the president expresses the hope that thi will settle the matter. There is no possibility of tbe bouse of representative doing anylhiug with the resolution introduced io favor of Admiral Schley but there la a bare possibility that the senate may pass tome resolution expressing it thanks to the admiral for thi victory at Santiago, tlont and Post matter general tayne is money received above 14 cent per in thorough sympathy with the move- pound.

The long distance of travel does not de teriorate its flue flavor or solidity." Mr. Slocum then took the reporter through the exhibit, showing the largrel and most beautiful plums ever grown anywhere excepting ia the Northwest. There was the greengage, the egg plum a Very large and yellow variety; dark rich blue and many others which bear abundantly. There were Italian prunes of enormous size, which are dried and exported in trainloads yearly from Oregon. Mr. Slocum then showed Royal Anne cherries, as large as good sized F.nglish walnuts. "There is no special growth,' remarked Mr, Slocem, "for exposition purposes, but the usual and ordinary production. The Oregon cherry ia fast finding its way into distant markets in candied form and dried lor various uses."

The W. C. T. U's over the land are celebrating Neal Dow' birthday with appropriate meetings. We give below extracts from his biography written by our National President Lillian M N. Stevons. The lives of such men tbow ut what one man may do lor Temper ance. Ncal Dow. Neal Dow was born in Portland, Maine, March 20, 1H04. When ho was sixtsen years of age be Bnlshta Ills education 10 lar as school or college was concerned, having taken a course at the Friendt Academy, New Bed ford, and the Portland Academy, lie desired to go to college but hit parents were opposed ; neither was he allowed to study law, as he wished. During his connection, In tarly man hood, with the volunteer fire company of Portland, bit influence wat constantly txerted to miike sentiment for the ex clusion of liquort from the tngine house and to prevent their use on publi occasions. In tins endeavor ha was successful In a remarkable degree. Then, as In his later lilt, he was biave and ready-wilted. At one of the banquets, In those days tied "spreads," when he was chiel engineer, the loaslmaatsr, whose View wer very dillurent Irom those of Mr. Dow's on the leinjierance question, offer ed a toast to be drunk in cold water, for want, be said of anything more ap propriate and acceptable to him who la to resiiond to it. The toastmastur held ui his glass of water and turning to Neal Dow, said : Mr. Chief, I ask you to resioud to this toast, Brandy and Water watur for the fire and brandy for the firemen." Neal Dow responded in a bright way, and In closing offered this toast, "Brandy and Water water ex'.iiiguishe fire, and brandy ex linguistics firemen!" It is well known bow, In 1851, the Maine prohibitory law was enacted laruely through the influence of Nea Dow. Neal Dow and Mis Willard met for the first time in the summer of 1874 at a temperance camp meeting at Old Orchard, Maine, where they were the principal speakers, From that time 00 they were staunch and sympathetic friends. Francis L'. Willard wrote: "Uenera Neal Dow hat lived a life that requiits no apology. He ha been alway a man thoroughly loyal to womanhood and the home. A dauntless soldier In the forefront of that great battle for lib erty which involve tbe emancipation of woman, and the downfall of the liquor traffic. Neal Dow continued hi active life and i speechmaking until about a year before he passed on to the Better Land, Oct. 2, 1807. He was alway a student, and In hi study he Included the Bible, reading portions of it each day of hi life. Hit Interest In temperance never wantd. Ill last message to the white ribboners, given a few day before hit plrlt left thi world, was message of confidence In th righteousness of onr cause and in the belief that victory will surely come.
