Bill Likely to Pass.
To thoso tiniu-quiiiiiti'd with con
gressional methods, tho present con
dition of business in botli house ami
senate would seem to nmko un extra
session inuritivblu. Hut there is still n
chaneo of escaping it, although it is n
slim ono. Conditions nro fuvornble.
Then nro others, but the principal
stumbling block is tho Hull army bill
which is now before the senate. If
the supporters nnd opponents of that
bill retain their present attitude the
bill is bound to fail, and tho president
lms repeatedly said that ho would at
ouco call an oxtra session if it (ailed.
Conservative senators nro trying to ar
rango a compromise that can be ac
cepted without loss of dignity by both
sides. Thoy beliovo that if they can
get a compromise bill through, Mr.
McKiuley will, owing to his known re
pughnnco to an extra session, bo will,
ing to take less than ho asked for rath
er than to veto tho bill and call an ex
tra session .
Tho military court of inquiry to in
vestigate tho beef scandal will begin
tho taking of testimony this week.
Tho list of witnesses is a long ono, and
it will probably be a month or so be
foro the investigation is concluded.
Tho regular naval appropriation bill
just passed by tho house, carries 44,
168,000, which is obout eight and a half
million greater than tho largest single
appropriation over inado for tho navy
and yet it is nearly four million less
than was asked for in tho estimatC3 of
tho navy department.
Tho bill for tho organization of tho
navy, generally known ns tho nnvy
porsonollo bill, has fared much better
than the nrmy reorganization bill. It
has boon passed by both houso and
seuato and is now beforo tho o infer
onco committee, owltitr to sevoral
.amendments added by tho sonato, with
tho probability of becoming a law be
fore tho eloso of tho present week.
Ruling out tho apptopriation to pay
Spain 120,000,000 as u part of tho sun.
dry civil bill, on a point of order, had
no special meaning, nnd will not pro
vent that appropriation being mado.
Two bills for thnt purposo havo al
ready boon introduced, ono- by Chair
man Cannon of tho appropriations
committee, which is tho ono that will
pass, as brief as it could posblbly bo
made, and another by Ropresontativo
Gillottof Massachusetts, which, after
providing for tho appropriation, adds
as n second section tho McEnory reso
lution, which was adopted by tho son
ato last weok.
Tho sonato committeo on education
and labor appear to bo afraid that tho
eight hour bill is loaded. It has re
ported tho bill without rocommond
atlon, something that no legislative
committeo should bo allowed to do,
and suggested amendments oxempting
from the provisions of tho bill, con
tracts for tho purchase of tho ordiuary
supplies of tho government and con
tracts for purchase of materials in tho
open market. Tho bill was ovidontly
reported only becauso a majority of
tho committeo foared to do otherwiso,
but it was hold back until itaebnnco
for being acted upon is not ono out of
a possible hundred, i'ho men who de
manded this legislation havo boon bun
coed. That is just about tho oxact
truth. But tho roporting of tho bill
will onablosuclr members of tho com
mitteo as desire to claim that thoy did
all they could to put it through.
Sponker Reed is credited with hav
ing knocked out tho Nicaragua canal
bill, when it was offered in tho houso
as an amendment to tho sundry civil
bill, and shut out on a point of order,
but tho sonatora, who favor tho canal
havo fixed up a littlo gamo that Mr.
Reed will not llnd it so easy to beat.
Thoy havo had tho bill added to tho
river and harbor bill, by tho sonato
committeo on commerce, as an amend
ment, which places it away beyond tho
reaoh of poiuts of order in tlm limi.n
That tho amended bill will tins i.
sonato is certain. Thou tho houso will
oilhor vote to accept tho sonato amend
monts, inolm'lugtho canal legislation
or nsk for conference, In oither
ovent thoro seems no chnnco for Mr.
Reed to kill tho canal legislation with
out killing tho ontiro river and harbor
bill, and ho is too wise a man to nt
tempt to do what ho knows would bo
more apt to bring failure than sue
cess. The friends of tho canal aro
moro hopeful now than thoy havo been
at any tliuo during tho session that tho
necessary legislation will bo secured,
although thoro aro many quaking kuees
In tho hluiso for fear that tho canal
amendment may result in killing tho
whole river and harbor bill,
Tho president's appeal to congress
is met in a way by Senator Fryo 's
nmondinent to tho sui.dry civil bill,
for tho payment of $100,000 a yo;r for
twenty years by the government for
the use of a Pacilic cable to be laid anil
controlled by a private corporation,
but it would seem to bo hotter policy
for tho government to spend thoso two
million dollars In laying tho cable it
self than to pay it just for tho free uso
of tho cable for government messages.
Future of the Philippines.
In tho courso of his remarks at Bos
ton tho other day, President McKiuley
said in referring to tho f uturo of tho
Philippines: "I'ho futuro of tho Phil
ippines is now in tho hands of tho
American people. Until tho tronty
was ratified or rejected tho executive
department of this government could
only preserve tho peace and protect
life and property. That treaty now
commits the freo and enfranchised Fil
ipinos to tho guiding hand and tho lib
eralising influences, tho generous sym
pathies, tho uplifting education, not of
their American masters, but of their
omancipalors. No one can tell today
what Is best for them or for us. I
know of no ono at this hour who is
wise enough or sufliciontly informed to
determine what form of government
will best subscrvo their interests nnd
our Interests, their nnd our well-being.
"If wo know everything by Intuition
and I sometimes think thoro nro
thoso who beliovo that if wodo not they
do wo should not noed information;
but, unfdrtunnfoly, mosUof us aro not
in that huppy state Tho whole sub
ject is now with congress, and congress
is tbo voico, tho conscience and tho
judgment of tho American pooplo.
Upon their judomont nnd conscionco
can wo not roly? I beliovo in thorn; 1
trust them, I know of no hotter or
snfer human tribunal than tho people
Until congress shall direct otherwiso it
will bo the duty of tho executive to
possess and held the Philippines, giv
ing to tho pooplo thereof peaco and
beneficent government, affording them
every opportunity to nrosocuto their
lawful pursuits, encouraging thorn in
inn it ana industry, making thorn feel
and know wo aro their friends, not
their enemies; that tholr good is our
aim; tkat their wolfaro is our wolfaro,
but that nolthor their aspirations nor
ours can bo roalizod until our authority
is acknowledged and unquestioned.
That tho inhabitants of tho Philippines
will bo bouefltted by this republfo is
my unshaken bolief; that they will
havo a kindlier oovornment under 'our
guidance, and thnt thoy will bo aidod
in every possiblo way to bo solf-ro-spectingand
truo as that tho American pooplo love
iiDorty anu navo an abiding faith in
their own government and their own
institutions. No imperial designs lurk
in the American mind. They aro alien

who will regret our perils and sacri

Always darkness and clouds, but al

THE NEW MAINE.
The New Battleship to Be One of the Most
Powerful Fighting Ships Afloat.
On a set of stocks standing by tho
sido of n big warship which tho linn is
building for Russia, says tho Inter-
Ocean, tho Cramps, of Philadelphia,
laid on Wednesday Inst tho ilrst sec
tions of tho uow battleship Maine, or
dered by tho United States govern
mont to roplaco tho now famous vessel
destroyed in Havana harbor.
Tho now Maino is to bo a fighting
machine of tho first class, as fust and
as powerful as modorn ingenuity can
devise. It will compoto in every im
portant essential with tho most pon
derous Bhipsof tho Rritish navy, as tho
following dimensions will show:
Length, 888 feet, breadth 72 foot, 2i
inches; displacement, 13,000 tons; horse
power, 10,000; speed, 18 knots; coal ca
pacity, 2,000 tons. Tho ship will bo
thoroughly armored, carrying a bat
tory of fourty-four largo and small
guns, and bo manned by a crow of COO
sailors, marines, nnd olQcors.
Tho Maino is tho first of a trio of
lirst class battleships which aro to bo
constructed at a contract price of 13,
835,000 each, exclusivo of armament.
Tho batteries will consist of four
twelvo-inch breooh-loadlng rillos, six
teen six-inch rapid tiro rillos, twenty
six pounders, and four throe-pounder
guns and a fow small pieces. Tbo
twelvo-inch guns will bo of forty call
bro and of tho now high poworod typo,
designed to uso .pmokelcss powder.
With a muzzlo volocty of 8,000 feet por
second, and firing an 850-pound sboll,
each gun will bavo an energy of 48,000
foot-tons, equal to tho penetration of
four feet of solid iron at tho muzzlo.
Tho guns will havo areas of firo of 280
Twolvo of tho six-inch, rapid firo
guns will bo mounted on tho main
deck and four on tho upper deck.
Two six poundors will bo on tbo main
deck, just abaft tbo two six-inch guns,
and four will bo located far aft on tho
berth deck, whllo tho romaining four
will bo placed on tho bridges and in tho
superstructures. Tho threo poundors
and gatling guns will bo mounted In
tho tops. Two torpedo tubes of tho
under water typo, will bo located out
of tho ordinary roach of shot or shell.
What littlo woodwork onters into tho
composition of tho ship will bo trent
ed by a composition which renders it
absolutely noucoinbtistlbie, Anothor
fuituro will bo tho comparatively shal
low draught which will enable her and
her Bister ships to maneuver in water
where other ships of tho samo fighting
power would be aground. It was orig
inally intended to havo tho armor plat
ing of tho Maino of sixteen and ono
half inch Ilurvoyizod steel, hut then
came along tho wonderful Kruppizod
nrmor, and after oxhaustivo tests this
has proved so good that tho Maino will
have twolvo-inah plates of It put on hef
sides instead of tho Harvoyizcd armor
originally planned for. This change
will admit of making tho armor bolt
broader and of extending it further
forward and aft.
Tbo Maino will bo especially welt
suppliod with electrio apparatus for
lighting, etc, Her turrets will ;bo
moved by electricity, and tho amu
nitlon will be hoisted from bolow and
rammed into tho gun by oloctriolty.
Two sots of triplo-oxpansion engines,
aotuating twin screw, will propol tho
Maino and twenty-four boilers of the
Niclausso water tube typo will supply
It takes tlmo to build n huge warship
but if tbo plans of tbo Cramps do not
miscarry, tho now Mnino will bo
launched on February 15th, 1000, that
being tbo dnto soleoted In suitable com
memmoration of tho destruction of tho
vessel after which tho new ship is to be
named. Thus, in both tho important
ceremonies of laying tho keol and put
ting tho hull in tho water, tbero is (loop,
slgniiicanco in tho chosen days.
Dangers of the Grip.
Tho greatest danger from la grippr
is of its resulting in pneumonia, If
reasonable care is used, however, and
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy taken -all
dangers will be avoided, Among
tho tens of thousands who have used
this remedy wo havo yet to learn of a
singio case having resulted in pnou
mooia which shows conclusively that
this remedy is a certain preventative
of that dangerous disease, it will cure
la grippe in loss time tinm any other
treatment. It is pleasant and safo to
take. For Salo by II. E. Grico.

Fatalities wero principally among range
stock which includes 85,000 cattlo and
750,000 sheop. Tho cash valuo Is placed,
at $101,000 for cattlo and 903,700 for
