The morning's news from Capetown is

meeting called Saturday was unable
to agree as to its advisability.
The vagueness of the information
concerning the movements and posi

cold til over the colonists, and Cape

that the greater part of Lord Kitch

The police give full credence to the

A notable speech was delivered
the benate yesterday by Mr. Iiodge
Massachusetts. Addressing the sen
ate on the amendment of thu military
committee striking out the provision
of the reorganization bill for a veterin
ary corps, he discussed brlelly and
principally in the form of a colloquy
with Mr. Ilacon the Philippine ques
tion and the necessity for an nriny of
100.000 men. In conclusion he drew a
brilliant wonl picture of the commer
cial future of the United States, de
claring that the trade conflict with
Kurope, already begun, could result
only in the commercial and economic
supremacy of the entire world. In
this industrial conflict he apprehended
no danger from a material contest with
any nation of the world, but he urged
the necessity for a strong and scien
tifically organised army and a power
ful navy in older that the (Jutted
States might be prepared to defend
Its' rights against any possible foe.
During the afternoon the senate rati
fied the committee's proposition to
eliminate the house provision for the
establishment of u veterinary corps In
the ntmy.
Senator Teller of Colorado gave no
tice of n substitute he will offer for the
entire pending measure, continuing in
full force and effect the act of March

for three years from duly 1, HUM.
Mr. 1'ettus of Alabama presented

third Tuesday in October.
A joint resolution was reported from
the District of Columbia committee
nuthorl.lng the secretary of war to

Tho resolution of Mr, Hacon and
Mr. Pettigrew relating to the declina
tion of the executive to send to the
senate the report of A. L. Law-she as
to postal frauds in Cuba went over.
Consideration of the nrmy reorganiza
tion bill was then resumed.
Tuemlay, January M.
The animated debate in the house on
the reapportionment bill is near its
close, it being agreed that a vote would
betaken Friday. It was expected there
would be a sequel to the exciting clash
of Saturday between Mr. LlttleJield of
Maine nnd Mr. Hopkins of Illinois, but
tho latter made no effort at rejoinder
nnd contented himself with the de
cision for the final vote. He expresses
confidence that the bill hoiring his
name will be passed tomorrow, al
though there may be a blight change,
giving an additional member to Flor
ida, Colorado and North Dakota, bring
ing the total membership up to UOO.
The notable speeches were by Mr.
Crumpaekcr of Indiana, dealing with
alleged disfranchisement in the south;
by Mr. Hepburn of lown, severely ar
ranging the present house, nnd by
Kir. Grow, of Pennsylvania, comparing
tho old system in the house with that
of the present.
Mr. Kitchen, North Carolina, the
first speaker, supported the Hopkins,
bill, but said he would voto against tho
amendment requiring the congression
al districts in tlie several states to be
'continuous and compact."
Mr. Crumpccker of Indiana, who
favors reduction of membership from
the south because of disfranchisement
advocated the llurlelgh bill us against
the Hopkins bill because it kept pace
vith the growth of tho country. He
agreed that during recent years the
inlluenco of the house in legislation
had gradually diminished, n condition
due to the fact that the members of
thu lower house allowed themselves to
be dominated by tho senate and chief
executive. If the membership was to
remain stationary as the years wenton
its influence would continue to de
crease. Ho then developed his argu
ment in favor of reducing representa
tion in certain southern states along
the line of his report.

The senate was In session a short
time yesterday afternoon. The mem
bers were all piesent, after having en
joyed a short vacation at their homes
or in Lincoln, and were ready for busi
ness. The business took a turn toward
the introduction of bills, the selection
of a few employes and discussion of
policy In caucus.
(Meson, of fuming. Introduced one
providing for the elimination of that
part of the law which now permits
pei sons to contract for the payment of
Interest at the rate of 10 per cent.
The bill will leave the rate at 7 per
cent. Interest on loans shall be 7 per
cent, and Interest on judgments shall
be U per cent., provided that where u
different late of Interest has been
agreed upon in the contract upon
which the decree or Judgment Is
founded, not greater than 7 per cent.,
thu rate of Interest upon such judg
ment or decree shall be the same, as
provided for by the terms of the con
tract. Hills for a constitutional con
vention and a constitutional amend
ment for the referendum were Intro
duced, Itaiisom, of Ilouglas, introduced
a bill to protect feebleminded women
from designing men. The present
law protects insauu women, but feeble
minded women, are not so piotecteil.
The friends of Mr. Hansom say this
bill Is of more importance than one
would suppose, ns it is evidently In
tended to cover a specltlu case that
ocuurrrd in Omaha.
The old question of requiring butch
ers to register and exhibit hides 1h
again before the senate, having been
introduced by Van lloskirk of Hox
Hutte, The net Is desired by the stock
raisers of the west who suffer from the
depredations of cattle thieves. It is
believed that thu exhibition and
registry of hides will answer the pur
pose. Other bills introduced provided for
the repeal of thu barbers' examination
act. defining u legal newspaper and to
authorize counties, townships and
hohiol districts to pay thu picmlum on
olllclal guaranty bonds given by
ollleers of such subdivisions.
