If tho ability of Agoucillo, who bus asked for recognition as Philippine minister to tho United States wtia equal to his iinptiilotiuo, ho would bu n "warm nienibor" of tho diplomatic corps. Ho won't got any official recog nition, but ho has already made much trouble for us in thu Philippines. Ho learned some time ago, by some leak age in official circles, that Gen. Otis hud been instructed not to use force in dealing with the insurgents, without further orders, and at onco cabled tho information to Aguinaldo, through tho Philippine junta at Hong Kong; that's why Aguinaldo has beon putting up such n stiff front towards our troops. Agoucillo is also getting encourage ment from tho anti-oxpanslonlBts in congress. Senator Mason has offered a resolution declaring that tho United Stales will not attempt to govern tho people of any other country without the consent of tho pooplo themselves, or subject them by forco to our domin ion against their will. Tho house judiciary committee has taken no official action, but its mom bors aro unanimously of tho opinion that the acceptance of commissions in the volunteer army by representatives vacated thoir seats in congress. Another vote was mado for tho ratifi cation of the treaty of peaco whon tho California legislature adopted a resolu tion directing tho sonators from that stato to vote for ratification, without amendment, of tho treaty. Seuator Perkins had announced his intention to voto against ratification unless tho legislature of his stato instructed him to voto for it. If tho legislature in othei states followed tho sentiment of tho majority of their constituents there would doubtless bo similar in structions scut to other "bucking" sen ators. For the twelth annual time thu house mado the civil servico clauso of the legislative, executive and judicial ap propriation bill the basis for a "circus." This time, however, the performance was carried a little farther than ever before, and a motion to strike out the appropriation for tho civil service com mission was adopted by a voto of 07 to 01, while tho houso was sitting as a commilteo of tho whole. The total voto being only a littlo moro than one thirdfof the entire membership, it was not surprising whon tho yea and nay vote was taken in tho house, that tho motion was defeated by a small mar gin, but there may como a day when it will not bo defeated. Some good propositions aro ruled out on points of order in the house, One of them is that ottered byRopic- sentative Iiartumu, of Montana, that any member of the house who retained any portion of too $100 u month al lowcd.him for clerk hiio, should for feit lus scat. Later modified so that any member who attempted to retain any portion of this allowance should forfolt that amouut. Mr. Hartman was very considerato toward tho feel ings of tho members of tho present house; hesaid bohad information that mombors of previous congresses had mado a practice of pocketing all, or a largo portion of this allowance. Ho struck some of his colleagues hard, however, when ho added: "No man who would be guilty of such an act is fit to bold a seat in the house." Itsooms like a littlo thing, in itself, but littlo abuses invariably lead to larger ones, and often to great national scandals. It is notorious in Washington that out side of a.fow men, who pay out much more than tho allowance for clerical assistance, most of tho congressmen work some sort of a dodgo to keop all or n part of this allowanco in their own pockets. Some do it by employing omo member of thblr own family, often a boy or a girl at school and reg ularly preanrulng a voucher signed by them for the entire amount, but the favorite method seems to bo to biro some poor devil as clerk, making him sign vouchers for 1100 a month and paying him only a small portion of it. Mr. Hartuun thould try to find lomi way to make the members of tho house put themselves on recoid foroi against his propositi ii, Senator Cnffruy agrees with Bonntor Vest, that a colonial policy is against the constitution of tho United Statos niul said in a speech, that to establish oue wi.uld lie despotism. Tho follow ing extinct fiom Ills speech sounds goud, and, if there were no contented English colonies, might be convincing: "The history of the world shows that God lias set the bounds where thu dif ferent people of the earth shall abide. When 1 look at the condition of tho world, 1 am unalterably convinced that no permanent swiy can be held by the white man over the black man in the sub-tropics, except by n strong mili tary and cruel despotism." In ottering his resolution, calling on the president for nil the instructions given to peace commissioners, which was adopted by tho senate, although opposed by Mr. Davis, chairman of tho sonate committee on foreign relations and one of tho peace commissioners, Senator Hoar was actuated, ho says, by n desire to bring out tho fact that our commissioners went to Paris in structed to demand ono island, and that taking the whole Philippine group was an afterthought. This has beon an open secret from the first, and tho commissioners have told senators that they had to demand all or nono of the Philippines, owing to circumstances whicli became apparent as soon as thoy' met the Spanish commissioners. LA GRIPPE IS CONTAGIOUS. ATMOSPHERE IMPREGNATED WITH GERMS. Disease Proved Beyond Question to Be In fectious, Is Rapidly Conquering the Country. La grippe is a contagious disease. Its specific germ has been positively iden tified, nnd it is transmitted from person to person either by direct contact or by inhaling the germs while thy float in tho air. It is a dangerous diseaso, lowering tho vitality nnd wasting tho resistivo power so that pneumonia, heart disease, nervous prostration and insanity find easy victims. No specific is known that will kill tho grip gorm, but it may bo driven out and its effects overcome by tho prompt use of Dr. Miles Restorative Nervine. "La Grippo left my nervous system so racked aud shattered that I could not sloop and for two months was un der tho influonco of narcotics. Physic ians and friends gave mo up to die; but in two days after I comiiieiieod Inking Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine I began to improve, and in n month's time I was entirely cured. It is tho greatest health restorer on earth." D. W. Hilton, Louisvillo, Ky.

"1 liavo just recovered from tho sec ond attnek of lagrippo this year," says Mr, Jas. A, Jones, publisher of tho Louder, Mexia, Texas. "In the latter caso I used Chamborlains Cough Rem edy, and I think with considerable suc cess, only being in bed a littlo over two days against ton daya for tho former attack. Tho second attack I am satis tied would havo been equally as bad as tho first but for tho uso of this romedy as I had to go to bed in about six hours after being 'struck' with it, whiloin tho first caso I was ublo to attend to busi ness about two days beforo gotting down."

Tho change in the weather has put a damper on tho ico liar vest. From presont indications 1800 will witness more substantial improvement in this city thau for ton years p-ist. Ihe Chief will keop up with the times and now is tho timo to subscribe This city would improvo moro rapidly if somo property owners in the east would shuffle off tho mortal coil, They will not build nor will not soil unless they can get an outrageous price, and hold favorablo locations whore brick buildings would be put up if the loca tions could bo secured at reasouablo figures We livo in hopes of reading of their early domiso, providing thoy don't deeido to tako theso valuable lo cations with them to tho great beyond. Tho nico weather has caused the scool boy to drop tho shlnnoy club and grasp tho baso ball bat. Speaking of baso ball, wo wonder if this city will sport a good olub this year.
