Senate and House Will Lock Horns on
Bevenue Seduction
Fervent Debates and Certain Strife Is
the Outlook Measures Crowding as
the Time for Adjournment Approaches
last week but one of the present ses
sion of congress will be an exceeding
ly busy one in the house Much busi
ness remains to be disposed of and
the invariable crowding which char
acterizes the closing hours of a con
gress has begun already
The appropriation bills so far as
the house is concerned are in fairly
good shape The last of them the
general deficiency bill will follow on
the heels of the sundry civil bill
which is about half completed These
bills and conference reports will be
given the fight of way over everything
All other matters some of them of
great importance relatively but not of
imperative necessity to be passed
will have to take their chances in the
final rush
Speaker Henderson is almost con
stantly besieged by members impor
tuning him in the interest of various
measures He is keeping everythine
clear for the great bills and letting
the driftwood of legislation into the
current only when it will not impede
progress of things which must pass
congress before March 4
There are many knotty problems to
be solved in connection with the ap
propriation bills over differences be
tween the houses and many good
sized rows are promised The ulti
mate fate of the river and harbor bill
will probably depend upon haw heav
ily it is loaded when it comes back
from the senate
The biggest fight between the two
houses from present appearances is
likely to occur over the war revenue
reduction act The senate conferees
seem determined at present to force
the senate substitute or allow the bill
to fail But the house conferees are
standing firm and as many members
of the house have their backs up the
impression prevails that the house wll
support its conferees and if it does
the senate in the end may be com
pelled to yield Tomorrow is suspen
sion day and the bill appropriating
5000000 for the St Louis exposition
will be put on its passage A motion
to suspend the rules will cut off op
portunity for amendment and no doubt
is entertained that this bill will com
mand the two thirds necessary to se
cure its passage upon a motion to
suspend the rules
The program with reference to this
and other measures however may be
materially modified if it becomes cer
tain before March 4 that an extra ses
sion is to be called
Belgium Taking o Steps Regarding

Count Lichtervelde the minister to

sugar has been imposed for several
years past

Asphalt Trouble Not Ended
WILLEMSTAD Island of Curacoa
Feb 18 Via Haytien Cable The

Mrs Nation Resumes Hostilities In Tope
ka and Continues Them All Day
TOPEKA Kan Feb 17 Mrs Car
rie Nation put in a busy Sunday in
Topeka today and as a result the cap
ital city has experienced more genu
ine excitement than can be remem
bered by the oldest inhabitant Mrs
Nation literally crammed the day full
of exciting episodes She succeeded in
having the contents of a notorious
joint smashed broke into a cold stor
age plant where a number of fine bars
had been stored away for safety and
demolished them addressed a large
mass meeting of men and women and
was arrested four times The last
time that the law laid its hands upon
her was when Mrs Nation emerged
from the church where the mass meet
ing had been held
Tonight Mrs Nation announces that
sne will begin tomorrow morning
where she left off today and will not
rest until all the joints in Topeka
have been closed This morning at 6
oclock she sallied forth from the state
house grounds at the head of 500 men
and women all armed with hatchets
and axes and moved on the joints
of the city Nobody but Mrs Nation
knew what plans she had laid In the
crowd were a large number of tlTe
students of Washburn college some of
the ministers of the city and a num
ber of professional and business men
The crowd marched in perfect military
order There was no excitement The
men and women were following their
recognized leader whom they trusted
Senate Will Devote Nearly All Its Time
to These Measures
The senate will devote practically ail
its time during the present week to
appropriation bills The postoffice ap
propriation bill will probably be taken
up tomorrow on convening though it
may give place to the diplomatic and
consular appropriation bill The
amount of time to be consumed in
discussing these measures will depend
largely upon the detemination which
may be reached with reference to the
ship subsidy bill So long as the dem
ocrats feel that the subsidy bill is to
be pressed in case of a lull they wiil
Insist upon debating all measures pre
sented The bill making appropria
tions for fortifications will also re
ceive attention during the week and
it is expected that the conference re
port upon the Indian bill will be con
sidered The arihy bill probably will
be reported late in the week but not
in time to be debated before the be
ginning of next week
There is some talk of the renewal of
night sessions but it is not probable
that they will be again undertaken
until the closing days of the session

in the course of a special article on
American steel combinations admits
that it is a serious menace to Brit
ish steel manufacturers but says
American users of American steel
goods will be squeezed to the last cent

A Letter With Beferenco to the Game
Iiatr Being Sent Out
The following letter with reference
to the game bill is being sent out
To the Agriculturists and Horticul
turists of Nebraska I desire to call
your attention to the fact that the cold
storage men and market hunters are
doing all they can possioly do to defeat
the passage of senate file 101 and the
duplicate bill house roll 138 which
the State Board of Agriculture and the
State Horticultural society endorsed
at their late annual meeting
These bills provide for a revision
of the laws for the protection of the
fish game song and other insectivor
ous birds which are among the best
friends that we have Stringent pro
visions are made by the oills to pre
vent the destruction of bird life in the
state and protecting the shipment out
of the state Estimates based on re
liable information indicate that not
less than 150000 worth of game birds
were shipped out of Nebraska by deal
ers during the months of September
and October of last year A large pro
portion of these birds were killed by
market hunters living in other states
which forbid the exportation from
their states of game or song birds
The fish and game and all bird life
have been declared by the supreme
courts of other states to be the prop
erty of the state and it is a great
injustice to the people of Nebras a
that a few men -should be permitted
to annihilate the bird life the prop
erty of the state for speculative pur
I trust that every farmer fruit
grower gardener and other person
interested in the matter of the protec
tion of our birds will petition the
members of the legislature to support
the bills above mentioned
State Weighniastcr
LINCOLN Feb 18 Attorney Gen
eral Prout gave an opinion in which
he held that the office of state weigh
master and his assistants have no legal
existence This opinion is based upon
the decision of the supreme court
which declared the Board of Trans
portation act unconstitudonal He
holds that according to the statutes
the weighmaster can be appointed only
by the transportation board and as
there is no board there cannot there
fore be any weighmaster The weigh
master in turn appoints his assistants
and the same construction is placed
upon their offices William Mach of
Omaha was recently named by Gov
ernor Dietrich for the position of
weighmaster but since the opinion
was rendered the appointment has
been withdrawn

Union Stock Yards Cattle There was
a fairly good run of cattle here for this
time of the week and as unfavorable re-
J ports were received from other points the
tendency of prices was downward Trad
ing was rather slow and as a result it
was late before the yards were cleared
There were about CO cars of steers on
sale and while the choicest heavy cattle
did not sell much different from the day
before bids on the less desirable kinds
were all of a dime lower Sellers found
It a difficult matter to dispose of some
of the common and half fat stuff and
in some cases they were calling bids
ia15c lower or 153230 lower for the
week About 25 cars would cover the re
ceipts of cows and buyers took hold in
fairly good shape and bought the cattle
at not far from yesterdays prices The
good cattle found ready sale at good
steady prices but the market on the
medium kinds seemed to be a little un
even Some were calling it steady and
others a little lower Canners did not
show much change Bulls were slow sale
and lower in sympathy with the decline
on steers Veal calves brought steady
prices The trade or stock cattle was
very slow as yard traders did not want
anything but the vert best Choice heavy-
weignc caiue Drougnt practically sieauy
Hogs There was anothed liberal run of
hogs but the demand being in good
shape the market ruled very active and
higher The first bids were 25c higher
and a number of loads sold at I527 and
5530 After the first round though pack
ers raised their hands and began paying
530 and 532 or a bier nickel hicher
than yesterdays general market As
high as 535 was paid for the better
grades of medium and heavyweights The
hogs changed hands about as fast as the
buyers could get to them and all but a
few loads were sold by 9 oclock in the
Sheep There were only a few sheep on
sals and the quality of the receipts as a
whole was rather common Lambs were
slow sale and generally a dime lower
than yesterday Top lambs sold at 490
There were no good wethers on sale and
those that were offered sold at not far
from steady prices considering quality
The best ones brought 420 Ewes and
wethers could be quoted dull and weak
and lambs a dime lower There was no
change noticeable in the feeder situation

Explosion Blocks all Channels of Exit
and Firo Encompasses Them
SEATTLE Wash Feb 16 A spe
cial to the Post Intelligencer from
Victoria says News of what it is
feared will be one of the most hor
rible mine accidents in the history of
not only the province but of the do
mion took place this forenoon at the
union mines owned by the Welling
ton Colliery company of which James
Dunsmuir the premier of the prov
ince is the principal shareholder The
telegraphic advices received so far
give no complete story of the accident
but newspaper correspondents are now
hurrying by steamers and tug boats to
the scene and the facts will shortly
be obtainable
As near as can be gathered the ex
plosion took place about 11 oclock
in No 6 shaft This particular shaft
is situated in the village of Cumber
land There were sixty men in it
when the explosion took place and not
one of them escaped The explosion
wrecked mine destroying the
shaft from midway down and filling
wiiu a scma mass ot rocks timbers
and earth
The first explosion was followed by
several more while the dense volume
of smoke issuing from the yentholes
indicated only too truly that the fire
as well as gas was doing its destruc
tive work below As soon as practical
after the accident the men of the
morning shift in No 5 shaft organ
ized a rescue party No 5 is situated
about a mile from No 6 but the two
workings are connected by a tunnel
and through this channel an attempt
was made to help the unfortunate fel
lows in the wrecked shaft

From the Chicago Times Herald on
Jan 12th 1901
The citizens of the Dominion of Can
ada have just cause to be proud of
their record as law abiding people The
annual report of the criminal statis
tics of the Dominion which has a
population of over 6000000 shows that
there were only twenty five indict
ments for murder in 1S99 of which
only two were left without final action
Eleven of those Indicted were hanged
nine acquitted and three confined as
insane l
Canada is a country of vast propor
tions Its people are scattered over a
wide stretch of territory making po
lice surveillance particularly difficult
and in many districts Impossible Yet
a city like New York or Chicago alone
furnishes a far greater criminal list
every year than the whole vast stretch
of territory from Quebec to Vancou
The Canadians ascribe their immu
nity from crime to the promptness
with which punishment is meted out y
to offenders When a man is caight
red handed in the act of rabbins an--other
he is not released on straw bail
by some justice of the peace from the
slums to go out and repeat the offense
Sharp and sure justice is meted out to
criminals of all kinds the result being
that when the guardians of the public
peace succeed in bringing a thug to
the bar they are seldom called upon to
hunt him a second time
Furthermore there are few court de-
lays in Canada when a criminal isi
brought to book They have no Dreyer
cases over there There are no
ods whereby Canadian criminals can
have the proceedings stayed from
month to month and from year to year
or after being convicted appeal from1
one court to another until witnesses
die of old age or opportunities for
ruption can be found
Nor does this swift method of treat-
ing with wrong doers in Canada leave
the innocent unable to properly defend
themselves They have all the oppor
tunities and privileges that our own
laws extend to them The extent to
shield the guilty is lacking that is all
The above taken from the editorial
column of the Times Herald gives
some idea of the immunity from crime
that exists in Canada and this is one
of the many Inducements held out fori
Americans to settle in the district
known as Western Canada The sea f
son of 1901 will see a few new sections
of the country opened up for settle-
ment They are attractive in every
respect It is understood that one of
the fcest Indian Reserves in the famous
Valley of the Saskatchewan -will be
opened up this year and an
tion is extended to those desiring
homes to make inquiries The price of
the land is said to be nominal Be-
sides these lands the several railway
companies have lands to sell also the
government For particulars writ t

Banishment was the unusual sen
