WASHINGTON , Jan. 7. The sen
ate will continue to give practically
uninterrupted attention to the army
reorganization bill until that measure
shall bo disposed of. That the bill
iwlll pass no ono doubts , and the gen
eral opinion IH that It will get through
Bomo time during the present year.
Senator Hawley , chairman of the
committee on military affairs , ex
presses the opinion that the measure
will bo in conference Wednesday , but
other senators postpone the date some
what. There are several committee
amendments yet to bo considered , In
cluding those relating to the army
canteen and the veterinary corps.
It was supposed at ono time that the
canteen provision would cause pro
longed debate , but the best opinion now
is that comparatively little time will
bo spent on it. A number of amend
ments suggested by Individual senators
will bo considered at greater length ,
and some speeches on the bill as a
whole arc yet to bo made.
The provision of the bill authoriz
ing the enlistment of Filipinos in the
army of the -United States Is among
the features which arc almost cer
tain to come in for sharp attack.
With the army bill out of the way ,
the legislative , executive and judicial
appropriation bill will bo taken up ,
nnd after It other appropriation bills ,
if any arc In shape to ba consdorcd.
The ship subsidy bill will "be re-
stored , to the "calendar * ab the regular
order of business when 'the army bill
Is passed and It will bo pressed when
no appropriation bills a'ro waltlng-cdn-
Next Saturday will be largely * devoted -
voted to eulogies upon the late Sen
ator Davis of Minnesota.
The consideration of the reappbr-
tionment bill will bo resumed tomor
row In the house. The Indications
point to a final vote upon the meas
ure on Tuesday , but the fight ever the
basis of , apportionment Is a bitter ono
and ther dobato. may bo prolonged.
The outcome Is not clear. Mr. Hap-
klns Is still confident that his bill will
carry , but In order to pull It through
he Is now ready to concede an Increti-o
of three members to cover the ma
jor fractions of , the states of Elorjda ,
Colorado and North Dakota.If.tiis .

The opposition Is very aggressive ,
but on 'tho surface seems to lack the
strength necessary to carry tho1 Bu'r-
leigh bill. There are forces at work ,
however , by which the opposition
hopes , through the agencies of Sen
ator Quay , Senator Platt of Now York
nnd Senator Lodge of Massachusetts ,
to swing the delegation of Now York ,
Pennsylvania and Massachusetts into
line , and if successful the Hopkjris bill
may suffer defeat. ' ' "
Mr. Crumpacker of Indiana "will
move to recommit the bill with In
structions to reduce the representation
of the southern states , but there Is
no Idea that such a proposition will
After disposal of the reappor-
tlonment bill the river and harbor
bill will be taken up. It Is expected to
consume two days. The remainder of
"the week will bo devoted to appropria

bill probably will bo the next of the
supply bills to bo considered.

A muscular affection of the heart ,
known to the medical profession as
myocarditis , was the Immediate cause
of death. He had beeii slowly rccov-

weeks had threatened his life. At 9

Ono of the trained nurses who had
been attending him , drew a chair to
the bcdsldo and slowly read from the
bible the prayer for which the dying
man had asked. It was read sentence
by sentence nnd each was repeated
by Mr. Armour. When the "amen"
had been repeated by him , ho sank
back on the pillow and closed his
eyes restfully. It was the last word
the great financier spoke , except feeble
farewells to his family a little later.
Dr. Frank Blllins , who was at Mr.
Armour's bedside when the end came ,
and who had been almost constantly
in attendance upon the sick man ,
stated tonight that ho had heard Mr.
Armour make no mention of his Inter

made $3,000,000 to $5,000,000 last week.

services would be held probably at

" DKAU Mns. PINKIIAM : l was n sufferer from fcnrnlo wcnlcncBa for

nothing helped me. I underwent the horrora .of local treatment , but ro-

weak 1 had io keep my bed. The pains were BO
hard au to almost cause spasms. When I could
endure the pains no longer , 1 was given morphine.

getting well. Tims I dragged along. To plcaso
