WASHINGTON , Jan. 11. The army
reorganization bill will continue to
engage the iitt < ilon of the senate , at
least during the first days of the
week. The opinion la quko genctally
oxproBaod among setmtorH that the
bill will bo acted upon by the middle
of the week , and even the critics of
the measure join In this prediction.
Many phases of the question Involved
In the army bill remain to bo consid
ered ami the general undorntamling
IB that there will bo not a little dls-
ciiBskm before the bill can be dis
posed of. The spcch of Senator Platt
of Connecticut last Friday in defense
of the hill OH general principles will
call for replies , and there are also
Kpcclal features which will require
mure or less attention. Among these
are Senator Daniel's amendment con
cerning the appointment of volun
teers to olllces In the regular army ;
the qucflllon of the disposition of offi
cers who have hold staff positions and
the provision for the enllBtmont of
Filipinos In the American tinmy. The
disposal of all these questlonH un
doubtedly will fill the llrst two or
three days of the week.
Senator Allison Intends to call up
the legislative , executive and judicial
appropriation bills when the army
bill Is acted upon , but whether this
and other aprpoprlatlon bills to fol
low It shall occupy the exclusive at
tention of the scnato so long as they
are on the calendar Is a question
which has not yet been absolutely de
termined. The present Indications
are , however , that the appropriation
bills will bo considered In advance
of any other mcasurca whenever they
are before the Bonato.
When there are no appropriation
bills to be taken up the ship subsidy
bill will ho discussed. There are Btlll
numerous speeches to bo made upon
this measure , and already there Is talk
of night sessions for Its consideration
when it Is taken up.
There Is little in the legislative bill
to arouse discussion , but there Is a
possibility that senators hostile to the
subsildy bill may use the appropria
tion bill for the purpose of delay.
Next Saturday will bo devoted to
eulogies In memory of the late Sena
A program of miscellaneous matter
will occupy the attention of the house
during the coming week. The river
and harbor bill , which consume one
nnd possibly two days. Although the
bill was criticised severely during
the debate last week It Is In no dan
ger of failure. Most of the attacks
came from members who were disap
pointed In what the bill grants to
their localities and the actual oppo
nents of the measure will be over
whelmed when the final vote Is
reached. The District of Columbia
committee which , under the rules ,
would bo entitled to a hearing to
morrow , will demand a day later In
the week If , it gives way to the river
and harbor bill. After the latter hill
Is disposed of the bill to revise and
codify the iinstal laws will ho taken ui >
under a special order. It will bo fol
lowed by the District of Columbia
appropriation bill and the latter In
turn by the postofllco appropriation
bill If there IH any remaining time.

CAN'T COMPETE WITH AMERICA.
Small Method * to Circumvent Tnuisiitliin-
tlo Competitor * .
WASHINGTON , Jan. 14. In com
pliance with special instructions from
the State department , Consul General
Mason at Berlin has submitted a re
port setting forth the restrictions
placed upon the publication of adver
tisements for certain American prod-
uct8bytrqdo _ _ journals In Germany.
The movement , states the consul
general , dates back to 189G , when the
growing competition of American bi
cycles began to alarm the German
makers to a considerable extent. It-
was at first attempted to secure an
advance in the rate of duty on Amer
ican wheels , but falling In this , the
association of German manufacturers
adopted the plan of boycotting , EO far
as possible , advertisements of Amer
ican wheels and bicycle parts In the
trade papers of the country. These
trade journals were given to under-
Bland that they were to choose be
tween the patronage of German bl-
cycle makers and their foreign com
petitors , especially those of America.
Under this pressure most , if not all ,
of the Gorman bicycle publications
refused to acc'ept American advertise
ments and still maintain their re-

"As a member of the executive com-

opinion as to how I will vote at the
meeting of the executive committee In
St. Louis January 21.The situation
will probably be changed by that time.
Cleveland , however , has not yet had a
national encampment of the Grand
Army , and that has been the point
uppermost In my mind. I think all
sections should have a chance. There
IB a largo number of members living
in the vicinity of Cleveland and who
would not have an opportunity to at
tend a national encampment unless it
were hold In their section of the coun
try. I believe in looking out for the
poorer members of the order. "

OMAHA , Neb. , Jan. 14. It haa never
been legally detqrur.neu whether Solomon
omen McKnlght is a resident of Iowa
or Nebraska. No one knows in the
eyes ot the law In which of the two
states his farm lies , and it is this
uncertainty that may result In a
money lender's losa of $300 and cause
McKnight to bo nheuu that sum.
In 1S5G the Missouri river llowed
o\er the strip of ground where Me

farm was the river's bed. At the pres
ent time the stream runs a good dla-
tanco to the east , no that an observer
unacquainted with the vagaries of the
stream would say tnnt the farm Is
a part of Nebraska. A few years ago
McKnlght borrowed $100 from J. J.
tiravatte , agreeing to pay him ? 300 in
the event the law had to bo Invoked
to secure payment. Suit was brought
as the obligation Is long overdue. No
tice was served on McKnlght in Ne
braska. Ills attorneys contend that
ho Is a resident of Iowa. If this is
true the service IB Illegal and the case
must bo dismissed without recovery
for the plaintiff.
New Kovenuo Ordrr.
OMAHA , Jan. 14. An order of es

cial Institutions of the Internal reve
nue district of Nebraska was received
by the collector. Since the beginning
of the last fiscal year tiToro has been
no printing office In the district li
censed to Imprint revenue stamps upon
paper to bo used for bank cheeks and
other documents. Under the circum
stances the tisers of tills class of pa
per have been forced to send outside
of the district to have the work done.
From time to tlmo much of the stamp
ed paper becomes unsuited for its in
tended use and the owners send to
the collector to have the money rep
resented by the stamps refunded. Here
tofore many of these peovle have sent
unused stamped paper to the collector
of the district In which it was printed.
The new ruling Is to the effect that
all claims for refund must bo made
to the collector of the district in which
tno user resides anil by him forward
ed to Washington. All expense of
transporting redeemed imprinted pa
per from the ollice of the purchaser
to Washington must bo borne by the
person asking for a rebate.
