RED CLOUD, NEBRASKA. MARCH. 3.
AT THE NATIONAL CAPITAL.
Extra Session Avoided. Minority Claim a
Victory on Army Bill. Representa
tive Johnson Wrathy Again.
An imiuodlatu extra session of tho
next congress was avoided when tho
agreement was reached on tho army
bill, but there tiro indications that
cause many to think an extra session
probable in tho near future. ThingH
are in a more critical condition in tho
Philippines than is indicated by any
thing given out olllcially. Dewey's
cable to hurry tho battleship Oregon
was given out inadvertantly at tho
navy department, and tho ollicials
have since been trying to make tho
public believe that it had uo slgnih
canco. They are fooling nobody.
Dewey's record isn't that of n man who
does things without causo. Ho thought
ho needed tho Oregon or ho would not
have scut that message, and it is well
known that he doesn't need tho battle
ship to tight the Filipinos. It has boon
feared in Washington ever sinco tho
Filipino attempt to burn Manila sever
al days ago was known, that tho de
struction of proporty might bo mado
un excuse for meddling by Germany or
othor foreign powers or a combina
tion of powers. Long-headed men be
lieve that thero is greater danger of a
war with Germany now, than thero
was at any time while our war with
Spain was going on, and should their
fears bo realized, congress would at
onco have to bo called in extra ses
sion. Tho minority senators claim that
thoy won a great victory in tho army
bill, but tho moro tho now bill Is ex
amined, the less substantial their claim
appears. It looks moro liko a bunko
than a, victory. Tho administration
sonators have secured from tho minori
ty about everything that tho Hull bill
would havo given them and have es
caped tho extra session of cougross,
whicli everybody knows tho adminis
tration dreaded. True, tho now army
bill only provides for tho incrcaso of
men for only two years from next
July, but that amounts to nothing
when it is remembered that a majority
of both houses of tho next congress
will give tho administration any ad
ditional army legislation it mny ask
A speech mado by Sonator Sowall
whorls an administration man when it
comes to voting, has attracted consid
erable attention. He expressed regret
that Dewey should havo remained at
Manila after his great victory, and that
he should havo undertaken to control
tho Philippines, which, ho said, contain
a population of ten million persons
who are almost uncontrollable. Ho
said that wo must now mako tho best
of tho situation, and that if he was
president ho would send enough troops
to mako short work of tho Filipinos,
oven to tho extent of wiping them out
ontiroly, if thoy could be pacified in no
other way. Uo predicted that this
government would Unci it impossible
to satisfy tho Cubans, and it was only
a question of timo when wo would
havo war with them. And he intimat
ed that tho Cuban Junta wns as likely
to have been icsponsiblo for the blow
ing up of tho Maine as Spain was. Tho
speech would havo caused a sensation
uttered by any sonator, but tho effect
was heightened by Sonator Sewall's
close relation with tho administratis.
Tho senato passed tho river and har
bor bill with tho Nicaragua canal
amendment, with only thieo dissent
ing votes Pottigrow, Rawlins and Tolt
ler and frionds of tho canal in tho
house say that they havo strength
enough to prevent tho amendmont bo
ing voted out of tho bill, and parlia
mentary skill onough to prevent its be
ing juggled out.
Representative Johnson of Indiana,
mado another highly sensational spoech
attacking not only tho policy of tho
president, but his personal integrity,
but it did not recelvo as much atten
tion ns his first speech he mado along
similar Hues, tho general impression
being that Mr. Johnson is trying
to got oven with tho president he
holpod olect, for somo real or fancied
Secretary Alger's position is any
thing but a pleasant one at this timo.
It is well ku wn that hoiuo of tho pies,
(dent's friends wish to get Alger out of
the cabinet, aud that having failed up
to this time to get the president to ask
for his resignation, they havo tried to
bring about his resignation by o .her
methods, one of which is believed to
he.rHpoiiMhle for the constantly re
pealed stories that the resignation was
about to be forthcoming. Socrutnry
Alger lias served notice upon these
men, and incidentally upon tho presl
dent, that lie will not willingly resign,
by stating that so far as his own will Is
concerned, ho intends remaining in the
cabinet until the cud of the adminis
tration. Tho failure of Chairman ISoiitell of
tho house naval committee, to satisfac
torily explain why tho bill reported,
appropriated $515 a ton to pay for
Krupp armor for tho battleships Maine,
Missouri aud Ohio, and to tell what
foreign governments were paying for
the same aimor, resulted in tho house
reducing tho amount to $445 n ton.
In order to got tho amount restored
tho navy department has placed the
information before tho senate that
might havo prevented tho reduction
being mado by tho house. Russia is
paying 9575 a ton for tho Krupp armor
that is being used on tho two war ships
the Cramps nro building, and Great
Britain is paying $508 a ton for tho
samo armor. Tho two American com
panies which mako armor offerodoto
furnish tho Krupp armor for tho four
battleships for 1515 a too; '.hence tho
placing of that amount in tho bill.
Residents of tho Mississippi bottom
nea- Ava, Illinois, aro greatly wrought
up over a strange and fatal disease. In
fourteen days thero wcro fourteen bur
ials in ono littlo cemetery. Tho dis
ease takes hold of bho victim somewhat
liko tho now disease did horses and
mules early in tho fall. As yet no ono
has boon nblo to find a remedy. Somo
nro of tho bollof that tho disease is
caused from eating corn bread mado
of meal manufactured from worm pois
oned corn, and it is reported that tho
doctors have forbidden tliousoof meal.
The malady has not mado its appear
ance in tho hill country, and as corn
bread is greatly used by farmors living
along tho rivor, it is possiblo that thero
is somo causo for believing that the
meal is poisoned by worms.
I havo boon afflicted with rheuma
tism for fourteen years and nothing
seemed to givo any relief. I was ablo

did, and was immediately rolioved and
in a short timo cured. I am happy to
