Senate to Dispose of Appropriations Quick
ly to Make "Way for Subsidy Bill ,
POSSESSIONS MAY GET ATTENTION
In Ilio House Revenue Reduction likely
to Inspire Vigorous Debate lluzlnz
Practice May lie Considered Any Time
Other Matters In Washington.
WASHINGTON , Feb. 11. If consid
eration of the naval appropriation
bill Is completed Monday , as it is sup
posed it will be , the ship subsidy bill
will be called up by Senator Frye and
that bill A-ill continue to receive the
attention of the senate during the re- ;
malnder of the day. Senator Caffery
will take the floor when the bill Is
taken up and is expected to occupy
the remaining portion of the day ,
whatever time there may be left. Sen
ator Proctor has given notice that as
chairman of the committee on agri
culture he will call up the agricul
tural appropriation bill on Tuesday.
There will be no effort to prevent
displacement of the subsidy bill by
the appropriation bill. The committee
on appropriations hopes to be able to
report the fortifications appropriation
bill by the time the agricultural bill
shall bo disposed of and the army ap
propriation bill is expected to be
reached later in the week. The plan
is to have nil appropriation bills acted
on as promptly as possible after they
are reported , but when there are no
bills of that character before the sen
ate the subsidy bill will continue to
have right of way.
No decision has been reached yet
as to whether there will be renewed
effort to secure night sessions in the
considering of the subsidy bill , but
the present indications are that there
will be no further immediate attempt
in that direction. The opponents of
the bill declare that in case of a re
newal of the night meetings the
friends of the bill will be compelled
to keep constantly in the chamber a
quorum of their own. While they
made frequent demands for a call of
the senate during the evening sessions
of last week , they always themselves
replied to their names when called.
It is now understood to be their pur
pose not t ) do this in case of further
efforts to bring the bill to a vote by
carrying the senate meetings into the
Much interest is felt in the effort
which is to be made to secure legis
lation in connection Avith the army
appropriation bill in regard to the
Philippines and Cuba. It has been al
ways supposed that any attempt in
either direction would open up the en
tire colonial policy of the administra
tion and leaa to interminable debate ,
but there is now unquestionably a
quite general acquiesence in the ef
fort to be made for Philippine and Cu
ban legislation. Whether this is due
to the fact that there has not been
time to consider the bearing of these
two proposed amendments sufficiently
or to the general desire to avoid an
extra session of congress , does not yet
appear. Be that as it may , a major
ity at least of the democrats seem
quite willing that a vote should be
reached on both these provisions. In
deed , it is understood to be the posi
tion of Senator Jones of Arkansas and
of his immediate supporters in oppo
sition to the subsidy bill that there
will be no obstacle to getting a vote
upon any till before the senate , ex
cept the ship subsidy bill and possibly
the oleomargarine bill.
The revenue reduction bill will come
before the house tomorrow , with some
prospect of an animated discussion.
The ways and means committee has
already determined on a recommen
dation for a disagreement to the sen
ate amendments to the bill and that
a conference with the senate be asked.
But this -.etermination has aroused
considerable feeling among the major
ity members of the committee and
this may fnd expression when Chair
man Payne presents the report and
moves for a conference.
Following this matter , the diplo
matic and consular appropriation bill
will claim attention , the general dis
cussion of foreign questions , particularly
larly the Philippines , being still open.
The army appropriation bill and the
sundry civil bill also will receive con
sideration during the week.

SWARMS OF BOERS.
Major Carew's Column Encounters Them
s.r . and Fierce Fighting Folloirs.
EAST LONDON , Cape Colony , Feb.
11. Details have been received here
of severe fighting at Tabaksberg
mountain , forty miles east of the
railway and about midway between
Smalldeel and Bloemfontcin.
Major Crewe , with a composite col
umn traveling southwest , sighted the
mountain on the morning of January
31. Ho heard heavy firing and know
ing that Colonel Pllcher's column was
on the other side of the mountain he
concluded that this office was in ac
tion. Consequently he hurried for
ward , only to meet Boers streaming
down and evidently retiring from Col
onel Pilcher's lyddite shells. Immedi
ately Major Crewe brought three fif
teen-pounders and a pompon to bear
on the Boers , who , however , were
found to be so numerous that It was
impossible to head them. Orders were
given to return to camp , about two
miles from the mountain. The col
umn rested until 4 o'clock in the aft
ernoon , when the march was resumed
Major Crewe .was just touching the
southern point of the mountain when
a terrific rifle fire opened .from a
large force of Boers who were in am
buscade on the mountain. The fight
soon became general. The Boers out
numbered the British five to one and
were attacking them on 'both flanks
and the rear. The British pompom
jammed and became useless. Major
Crewe grasped the situation and by a
brilliant mx > vc got the convoy into a
Between 7 and S o'clock in the even

and turned both flanks. The British
ammunition became exhausted and
Major Crewe was obliged to retire

A rear guard action was fought by
Major Crewe into the camp , where
the wagons had been laagered. He
personally superintended the retire
ment , the Boers harassing him
throughout. Entrenchments were
thrown up during the night.
When morning came Major Crewe
started to join General Knox , twelve
miles southwest. The Boers immedi
ately reattacked him , compelling him
to fight'a second rearguard action for
a few miles. General Dewet person
ally commanded the Boers , estimated
at 2,500. Major Crcwe's force was
only 700. Eventually the British offi
cer joined General Knox and return
ed to Bloemfontein. Lord Kitchener
has highly complimented Major Crewe
on the achmievement.
MAY RtLEASE MRS. MAYBRICK
Will Be Given Her Freedom After 12
CHICAGO , Feb. 11. A special ca
blegram from London to the Chicago
Record say. A well authenticated
report reaches the Record correspond
ent tonight to the effect that Florence
T. T. Maybrick will be released from
Alyesbury prison tomorrow ( Monday. )
At the United States embassy nothing
is known about the matter , and Am
bassador Choate when seen at his resi
dence tonight declined either to deny
or confirm the rumor.
Ever since Charles Thomson
Ritchie , the new home secretary , came
into office hist November efforts to se
cure the release of Mrs. Maybrick have
been active and have continued up
to within a very few days ago. The
efforts of Ambassador Choate , al
though maclc informally , have bee
unceasing. When Mrs. Maybrick was
allowed th.3 privilege of seeing her
New York lawyer , Clark Bell , last
summer , that gentleman told the Rec
ord correspondent that the chances for
his client's release were more favor
able than they had been at any other
time during her twelve years' incar
The authorities conversant with the
attempts to secure the famous prison
er's freedom , assert that if at lastshe _ ,
is to be given her liberty this may be
regarded as due to the influence of
King Edward and may be interpreted
as a token of appreciation of Ameri
can sympathy over the death of Queen
Armours Fay for Quail.
LINCOLN , Neb. , Feb. 9. Through
B. C. Eldridge of South Omaha the
Armour Packing company pleaded
guilty in Justice Green's court to the
charge 'of violating the state game
laws. A car of quail was found in

and proceedings were begun by local
members of the Fish and Game Pro
tection association. On the plea of
guilty the company was fined $500 ,
which was paid promptly.

Consideration of Laws that Are Now
Pending in Congress ,
AS TO THE RECIPROCITY TREATIES
Condition of the Sugar licet Industry in
Nebraska Resolutions Tlmt Were
Adopted Miscellaneous Mutters In
OMAHA , Neh. , Feb. 11. The Ne
braska Beet Sugar association held a
meeting at the Commercial club
rooms. From out of the city there
came M. R , Allen , president , Ames ;
W. G. Whitmore , Valley and James
Walsh of Benson. A large number of
the Omaha members were In attend
Mr. Allen in calling the meeting to
order announced that Its purpose waste
to consider laws now pending In con
gress which will affect the sugar beet
industry. In a brief adress he took
up the question of the reciprocity
treaties with tropical islands and
countries now being considered and
stated that in each case the sugar
producers of the United States would
be injured should the treaties be rati
fied. To the satisfaction of the mem
bers of the association he showed
that where the tariff was reduced on
raw sugar by a treaty it not only re
duced the revenues of the government ,
but brought the sugar raisers of this"
country into competition with cheap
er labor and the more advantageous
climatic conditions of the tropical
He then referred to the conditions
of the sugar beet industry in the state ,
showing that for some things Ne-
barska is better situated for the suc
cessful cultivation of the crop than
many other states which are now in
advance of this state in acreage and
field. The principal advantage pos
sessed by Nebraska In this regard is
because of its geographical situation
with reference to the live stock mar
kets. It has been demonstrated that
the refuse of the beets after the sugar
is extracted is one of the best mate
rials for fattening stock. Referring
to his own experience he said that at
Ames at present his company is feed
ing 30,000 sheep which will be placed
on the South Omaha market when
they are fattened , and that until the
food became scarce they were feeding
a large number of cattle on the beet
The reciprocity treaty was dis
cussed by the members present at
length and at the conclusion of the
discussion the following resolutions
Resolved , That the reciprocity
treaties with the British West Indies ,
if ratified by the senate will endanger
domestic sugar production , an indus
try specifically promised the aid of ,
the republican party.
Resolved , That the suspension of
the Dingley law as to the payment of
countervailing duties on sugar im
ported from Russia is not fair to do
mestic sugar and involves a risk of
leading to a much wider application.
FOR COMPULSORY EDUCATION.
Teachers' Legislative Committee Prepares
Measure to Present at Lincoln.
LINCOLN , Neb. , Feb. 11. The leg
islative committee of the State Teach
ers' association at a meeting agreed
on an entirely new law to be substi
tuted for the present one relating to
compulsory education. One of its
thief features is the requirement that
all children between the ages of 7
and 14 years shall attend school two-
thirds of the number of weeks school
is held in the district where the child
resides. In all districts other than
city districts truant officers may be
appointed by the board to see that the
provisions of the act are enforced. In
case the board shall fail to select a
truant officer the director shall act in
that capacity. Boards of education in
cities shall appoint one or more such
officers at their discretion.
A peculiar feature of the proposed
bill , and one that'will evidently prove
fatal to the accomplishment of what
it seeks , is lack of any punishment for
parents or guardians who violate its
provisions. The present law , subdivision
vision 16 of chapter 79 , is entirely re
It is made the duty of the census
enumerator each year to ascertain the
date and place of birth of .each child
in the district , and he is empowered
to administer an oath or affirmation
to one from whom he desires informa
tion. Any person refusing to take such
oath or affirmation subjects himself tea

SEWARD , Neb. . Feb. 11 A German -
, man woman named Anna Marie Boll ,
.who had been an inmate of the poor

'suicide by cutting her throat with a
'pair of scissors. She went to an out
house and thrust the scissors through

of the outhouse.
THE LIVE STOCK MARKET.
r atcst Quotations from Sontli Oicaha
anil Kansas City.
UNION STOCK YARDS , SOUTH OM
AHA CATTLE The supply of cattle fell
considerably short of the number received
the last few days , and , as the demand
was of iuite liberal proportions , the mar
ket on good stuff ruled active and n
little stronger all around. There \Vf-re
not many oed to choice beef stceru of
fered , and as there was considerable
competition on such grades , prices were
stronger than yesterday. Where the cat
tle Just suited buyers they paid fully a
nickel more than yesterday and in some
cases sales looked better than tlmt. The
situation , however. Is best described by
calling It a good strong market. Common
and half-fat stuff did not Improve and in
fact sellers found It difficult to dispose
of that class of cattle. Packers do not
want them and will take them only at
their own prices. The cow mar'tet waa
also active and stronger on good stuff ,
the situation being much the same as
on fat steers. As the supply was limit
ed the moro desirable bunches were out
of first hands early In the morning. Bulls ,
calves and stags could be quoted just
about steady with yesterday , no partic
ular change being noticeable. The de
mand for good stock .cattle was equal tote
to supply this morning and prices re
mained stationary. There was not much
offered in that line and conscqunetly sell
ers had little difficulty in disposing of
HOGS There was not as liberal a sup
ply here as yesterday and the market
opened 5'ft > 71c higher. The first sales
were mostly at J5.27VLand $3.30 and as
high as $5.32 was paid for prime heavy
weights. The hogs however , did not
move toward the scales very rapidly , as
packers did not like to pay the advance
and were slow about taking hold. After
about thirty loads had changed hands the
feeling seemed to be a little easier and
not much was done for a time.
SHEEP There were only about thrc "
cars of sheep included in today's receipts
and consequently hardly enough to make
a good test of the market. The few
bunches offered , though were bought at
just about yesterday's prices. Lambs
sold as high as $5.00 and ewes brought
$ .1CO. The light supply of wethers con
tinues , the bulk of the receipts being

CARNtGIE NOT AFTER CASH.
He i Willing to Surrender His Stccit for
Five J'er Cent.
PITTSBURG. Pa. . Feb. 0 Finan
cial and steel men of Pittsburg are
anxiously awaiting further informa
tion from Now York relative to the
Carnegie deal , but not a word came
here today that gave any intelligence
as to what progress is being made
by the Morgan syndicate. It is learned
from private advices that very little
cash will 'be ' required to consummate
the deal. If the plans go through ,
Mr. Carnegie will withdraw entirely
from the affairs of the Carnegie com
pany , taking for the transfer of his
stock a sum exceeding $85,000,000 in
guaranteed 5 per cent bonds , which
are to be a first lien on the Carnegie
and other properties.
Gossip centers now mostly on the
price that will be paid for the 85,000
shares of stock. Two years ago H.
C. Frick and others , including ex-
Judge W. H. Moore , obtained an op
tion on Carnegie's holdings , paid $1-
000,000 in hand money , failed to com
plete the deal and lost the $1.000,000.
At that time Carnegie stated that the
next time he set a price it would
be high. This statement is being re
ferred to as evidence that the price
placed is considerably above the par
value of $1,000 a share. It is un
derstood in the Carnegie building that
Mr. Carnegie has taken steps to pro
tect the interests of his younger part
ners. One of the few officials of the
company who could be seen today
said in relation to the report from
New York that the minority stock
holders had taken steps to block the
REPLY IS EXPECTED SOON.
Great Britain's Mind is Uade Up on the
LONDON , Feb. 9. It has been
learned by a representative of the
Associated Press that a reply will
shortly be sent to the United States'
Nicaragua canal project. It will not
comply with the senate's demands.
Neither will it be in the nature of
a flat refusal , though for purposes
of immediate construction it will be
tantamount to such a refusal. It will
consist mainly in a counter proposal ,
or proposals , likely to necessitate ex
tended negotiations. The nature of
the proposal is not yet ascertainable.
Lord Pauncefote will probably be
the medium through whom the an
swer will be sent and by whom the
subsequent negotiations will chiefly
.be . conducted. In British official opin
ion it is likely that several months
will elapse before the matter reaches
a conclusion , by which time the Hay-
Pauncefote treaty will have lapsed on
the basis of the senate's amendments.
The British counter proposals are now
formulating and it is hoped an en
tirely new agreement , satisfactory to
both countries , will eventually be
