Washington, Mar. 17th, 1902.
The 'most interesting aventi of tba
past week in Washington have been the
harmonising of the warring factions of
the republican members: of the house of
representative, tha energy with which
the democrat! in tba senate bare re
newed the agitation in favor of the
election of senators by popular rote and
tba ratification by the senate of the
Hague treaty, formulated at tba Hague
peace conference and by which it ia
hoped to make warfare more human.
While the term of agreement between
the beet sugar ref ublicans, a they have
come to be called, and tha republican
organisation of tha bout have not been
announced, It ia believed that they will
be today and that they will bind the
party to vote for the way and mean
bill granting SO per cent reduction of
the Dingley tariff rate on Cuban im
port, to be met with similar reduc
tion on American goods going into Cuba,
the concession to be limited lo Septem
ber 1st., 1003, and the whole accom
panied by the pledge of the leader that
the senate will not amend the measure
by increasing the rate or extending the
time limit. The accomplishment of this
agreement will prove a disappointment
to the democratic member who hoped
to be able to secure, through the division
of the republicans, aome reduction of
the tariff on various schedules. It also
mean, no doubt, that the bill proposed
by Representative Babcock, of Wis
consin, will not be considered at this
The demand of Senator Berry, of
Arkansas for a report on the joint resolu
tion amending the constitution to per
mit of tha election of senator by
popular vote was met with the promise
of Bennlor llurroos, chairman of the
committee to which the resolution had
been referred, that it wonld be reported
in the near future and since then the
democratic senators have been vigor
ously agitating the question. Senator
Vest, of Miesonri, ia opposed to the
change and Senator Morgan, of Ala
bama, declined to tell me where he
stood, but the remainder of the detno
cra.li: senators, most of whom I have
spoken to on the subject, seem to favoi
it and some of them say that they be
lieve it will be made a campaign Issue if
the resolution is defeated at this session.
Colonel Bryan was at the capilol Tkurs
day of laat week and saw many of ths sen'
ators and representatives in regard to this
question. Senator Burrows- was in the
uiRrblerooin during Mr. Bryan's call and
tbe Colonel remarked tobim that he was
glad to know that there was one point
on which he could agree with the
enator from Michigan. Senator Bur
row favor popular election.
It Is a serious question whether the
Hague treaty promotes the end desired.
It ia favored by many humane persons
because they hope to make war less
terrible. Other equally humane coo
tend lhat the more terrible war is, the
more care nation will take to ratify the
Following closely upon the resignation
of Secretary Long comes the announce
ment that Civil Service Commissioner
Rodenberg has resigned his position,
presumably for the purpose of entering
the field of active politics. The ap
pointment of Mr. Rodenberg' successor
is awaited with considerable interest as
upon the personnel of the commission
depends, to a very large extent, the
effectiveness and integrity of its work.
Mr. Rodenberg was never regarded as a
very strong advotRte of the principles
which brought tha commission Into
etislence but he lias carried out the
provisions of the law none the less
faithfully. Messrs. Proctor and Foulke,
his associates, are both ardent advocates
of civil service reform and the appoint
ment of another enthusiast, which la ex
pected ol the president, will render the
commission a greater power for good
Tbe senate has devoted itself all the
past week to the consideration of the
ship subsidy bill although there is not
the slightest reason to believe that a
single vote has been changed by the
debate. The measure comes to a vote
today and the vote will doubtless be on
strict party lines. Its sponsors, Senators
Frye and Henna, express themselves
as confideut that the bill will pas and
will be received with approval by the
house and will become a law ; but other
republican tvnalora, although they
refuse to ermit their names to be nsed.
have told uie that they believe that it
has little ehance in the lower chamber.
After passing the rur. I free delivery
bill, so amended as to provide fur a
salary not to exceed fM0 per annum for
rural carriers, the house turned it at
tention to the consideration of the post'
office appropriation bill and passed il on
Friday. Saturday was devoted to the
passage '.of private bills. Tnis is the
sixth appropriation bill that the house
hsa disposed of this session. A reeolo'
lion wae adopted by the bouse on Friday
aulboiiting the president to invito the
families of the Count de Rochsmbeau,
and the Marqnis de la Fayette, and tbe
people of France to be present at tbe
unveiling of the statue of Rochsmbeau
at Washington on May 24th., and ap
propriating f'JO.000 to defray the ex
penses which would be Incurred.
Tb president' veto of a hill remov
ing tbe stigma of having been "a
deserter from tbe navy" from the
record of John Glass hi first veto, by
the way has caused general reconsider
ation of similar bill in tb committees
of congress. These bill first provide
that "honorably discharged" (hall be
placed after the nam of men who bare
deserted, aod sooner or later there p
pear another bill affording tb former
deeerter a pension. Msny of these bills
have been passed lo former year and
the president doubtlsae realised that
the veto of tbe first such bill that came
to him for approval would check tbe
practice. I have in mind a simltsr,
though not precisely analagous case,
which happened dnring the fifty sixth
congress, A bill was passed placing
"honorably discharged" after the nam
of a man who stood on the record as
"dishonorably discharged." Later a bill
was passed to correct en error in the
case ef the same man. He ha been an
officer and .twice court martialed for
drunkenness,; the last instance having
been while on duty In time of war. The
last bill let forth .that "honorably dis
charged'! waa an erroneous entry
inasmuch a the man was an officer and
bad not resigned and therefore he waa
entitled to retired pay. He now draw
the retired pay of a colonel.

Timber Land In Oemevnd.
Eastern timber men are purchasing
largely of Oregon forests lands, and
those best posted on the business think
heavy deals will be more numerous than
ver iu 1002. Tbe Wood have been full
of cruiser all winter, in spite of tbe dif
ficulty encountered in tramping through
wet underbrush all day, in making
estimates on the amount of timber on
each subdivision. The cruisers have
only recently begun to return to the city,
and they are at present In conference
with their principals about the hotels
and in tb business offices of the lull
Buyers are mostly men who have
grown wealthy in the timber business in
Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
These men have seen th pine forests
nsar the Great Lakes fall before the
woodmen's ax within the past 30 years,
and many of them remember how iu
early daya pioneers wondered if the
day would vei come whrn the forest
would be denuded. They have setn the
price of laud advance from $7.25 an
acre a hundred fold, and they now
realise that the supply of timber haa
beea well nigh exhauated iu those
three states, a bile tbe demand for the
product has increased. They realise
better than old Oregon ians do the value
of the coast fir, sprues and larch, and so
they have already made new fortune
through the advance in price since the
pressing demand for Oregon timber
land began, fiva year ago.
Ho many eastern lumberman have
become owner ol northwest lands of
late that they have decided lo visit
Oregon in a body, in June. At least 150
lumbermen aud mill owners of the

preparing to start from Chicago sad
