DOINGS AT WASHINGTON.
An effort is being made by the
clerks and many of the business men
to close the stores earlier. Clerks, in
particular, feel that the present hours
are too ion?, thus making the time
left for rest, reading and recreation
very limited. It is to be hoped that
employers and employes will find it to
their mutual interests to institute a
reform ulong the line suggested.
The sentiment of the members of
the republican central committee, as
sembled at Weeping Water yesterday,
was for one convention. The time was
not fixed but it will necessarily have
to be the latter part of April or early
in May. All present seemed ready to
enter the national campaign in antici
pation of the victory it iaexpected the
republican party will win next fall.
Frank G. Carpenter has sailed,
for the Philippines, where he goes to
make a careful' study of the archi
Delano, the customs and needs of its
inhabitants. His letters will be read
with unusual interest. They will ap

Times-Herald, beginning early in
February. Mr. Carpenter has trav

given throuprh his letters to news
papers is looked upon as reliab'e.
Washington, D. C, Jan. 20. (Spe
cial Correspondence.) There is one
object that has interested the people
of the United States for years, and
that is the building of a canal across
the Isthmus of Panama. This is
pretty certain to be provided for by
toe present congress. President Mc
Kinley hus expressed an anxiety to
see the canal put through, and almost
every member of congress is also in
favor of it. The bill appropriating
$140,000,000 to build the canal has
been favorably reported, and is likely
to ba adopted without serious division.
The new c .nal, which will be under
American control, will make a direct
waterway from the eastern and south
ern coast to Hawaii, China, Japan,

To say that the inhabitants of the
Philippine group are unfit to become
citizens on account ol race or otner
abstacles, is to contend for one thing.
To sav that the United States has no
right, in its settlement of differences
with Spain after a resort to the sword.
In exacting indemnity for losses in
curred, to exact from that nation a
portion of its territory, without the
consent of the InhaDitants oi sucn
hostile territory, is to announce a new
doctrine of international law which
will surprise the great legal lumin
aries of the civilized world.
'ln the olden time it was the king's
prerogative to make treaties, leagues
and alliances with foreign states and
princes. For it is by the law of na
tions essential to the goodness of the
league tbat it be made by. the sover
eign power." So say Puffendorf, Vat
tle, Blackstone and all other emminent
authors on the law of nations. The
power of the sovereign, in this re
spect, cannot be questioned by the
subject. This general principle comes
down to us modified by the checks
and guards of our own constitution.
Treaties made by the president and
consre-s are conclusive on the penator
from Massachusetts no matter how
high he may estimate bis own judg
ment and nover as the representative
I of the little American class of fault
tration to rush it through.
The financial bill is still before the

THE PHILIPPINE QUESTION.
It is difficult to know where Senator
Hoar gets his ideas of the power and
right of a sovereign nation to acquire
territory. Does he dispute the prin
ciple of the right of a nation, at war,
to indemnify itself, if necessary, by
seizing and appropriating territory of
its adversary, without the consent of
the inhabitants of such hostile terri
Of course, Senator Hoar well knows
that some three centuries ago Spain
discovered the Philippine archipel
ago, took possession of it, opened it
up to the limited commerce of the
world as it then existed, and has ever
since ruled it and exercised undis
puted sovereignty over it.
The Massacbusatts senator, more
over, knows tbat Spain owned the pub
lic improvements, harbors, arsenals,
navy yards, custom houses and fortifi
cations, and that Spain possessed
every evidence of title and sovereignty
necessary to establisn her undoubted
right to rule and control that archi
pelago. Now, the facts of the case
are that Spain, in her extremity, was
compelled to Transfer this territory
to the United States. The further
fact appears that Mr. Bryan and the
democratic party approved of this
transfer of territory. Certainly these
eminent patriots would not approve of
congress doing anything of this kind
negotiating and ratifying an inter
national treaty of such magnitude and

If people only ato more fruit they

saying that fruit is gold io the morn

fact, it may be gold at both times, but
then it should be eaten on an empty
stomach and not as a dessert,wben the
appetite is" already fcufflciently taxed.
Fruit taken in the morning before the
fast of the night has been broken is
very refreshing and it serves as a stim
ulus to the digestive organs. A ripe
apple or an orange may be taken at
this time with good eff -cts. Fruit, to
ba really valuable as an article ol diet,
should be ripe, sound and in every wiy
of good quality and, if
should be e.-.ten raw. Instead of eat

of: en -liDS out to the cloak room to
wail for tho storm to pass. Since his
speech made last winter, in which be
upheld the war and denounced the
Filipinos as "worse than Sioux lu
diuns," he has no anxiety to goon
record as opposed to the war this win
ter. The effort being m ide in Nebraska
to bind the pop par v band and fcot
and turn it over to the democrats is at
tracting much attention in the east,
nnd the activity of Senator Allen in
the work is causing much comment.
Wherever the great tropical forest
grows, whether In the old world or
the new, a separate class of great for
est eagle seems to be produced, says
the Corn hill. The largest of all liv
ing raptors yet known was discovered
only s.x years ago and proved to be
one of these forest eagles. It was
found In the island of Samar (one of
the Philippines) by Mr. Whitehead,
whose death in Hainan was lately re
corded. He brought the skin back to
South Kensington, where it lies among
the treasures of the bird department.
Nothing is yet known of its habits but
the few natives who know It say that
it lives on monkeys, caught on the
tree tops. It seems almost Incredible
that so large and Interesting a bird
should not have been discovered be
fore. But the tropical forest is still a
possible place to find "'ore giant
eagles. It is extremely likely that
some may be discovered taunting the
Congo forest. In the corresponding
regions of South and Central rerica
the harpy eagle Is found, a biid so
large and formidable that it wjuld
seem impossible not to observe It. But
the great height and thlcknes3 of the
trees make the birds above them in
visible. Mr. Salvin in all his travels
in those regions only once saw a wild
harpy eagle. In examining the skins
brought over to this country, one Is
struck with the astonishing thickness
and strength of the "wrists' and the
size of the talons. Azara said that they
"would kill animals of thrice their
own weight." But what Is their
weight? Mr. Whitehead gue:sed that
of his great eagle at sixteen pounds.
The harpy Is not so large. There is
a species of harpy eagle in Mexico
which used to be tamed to take deer.
