that "It must bo embarrassing iu the

, The people of Omaha are congratulat
ing themselves over two recent mores
of the railroads iu this territory. The
News of that ; city says : "Omaha is
given a more exclusive hold , oa the trade
through Nebraska by the latest move of
the Union Paclllo in withdrawing from
the Sionx Oity trade. The city gains
the inside track on all Nebraska terri
tory west of Norfolk. By the extension
of the Eikhorn road to Boyd county the
territory from which Omaha has for
merly been completely shut out is
opened np and the first stops for the in
vaaion of the Dakotas from an entirely
.new point are taken. "
The Manila Times of December 25 re
lates a feat recently preformed by thro
native sconte enlisted in our army who ,
fired by the fame of General Fuueton
organized a little expedition of thoi :
own. They ascertained through friend
ly natives , that not far from their ou
campmont in Laguna province , n com
pauy of iusurrectos were encamped and
wore recruiting their ranks. The three
a sergeant and two privates , concluded
to pay them a visit. Exchanging thei
uniforms for ordinary native dress out
concealing their revolvers under thei
clothing they proceeded to the cam ]
nnd upon talking of enlisting were given
n cordial reception.
But before they had been in cam
many hours they perceived n coldness
which could arise only from suspicion
among the insurgents. However , they
were assigned quarters for the night ,
nnd told that in the morning the com
manding officer would consider the ques
tion of enlisting them. They slept , with
one eye open , and soon heard the' approach
preach of a band to thtir sleeping chain-
bor. When the Filipinos entered their
room with drawn bolos , they had their
revolvers at full cock nnd rushed upon
them. After iv smart light in which
jiono of the three got n scratch , they
captured , disarmed and marched into
their own cninp sixteen of the enemy.
This feat will probably onoonrngo the
llttlo Kansas brigadier to think that ho
had apt scholars among his old native
scouts who stood by htm in danger nnd
learned his ways. State Journal.

Senate Hears Heated Discus
sion on Tariff Bill.
TO TAKE UP IRRIGATION DILL.
Senate Decides to Consider Measure
After Phlllppl.no Tariff la Disposed
Of San PVou Route for Canal IB
Proposed by Scott.
Washington , Fob. 7. For four hours
yesterday the senate had the Philip-
pliio tariff bill under discussion. The
measure was completed BO far no the
Philippine commlnslon was concerned ,
nil the amendments being adopted.
Several other amendments will bo of
fered. Toward the close of the day
the discussion became hot. In re
sponse to a resolution offered several
daya ago by Rawllns ( Utah ) , the sec
retary of war transmitted to the Ben-
ate the oodltJon laws enacted by the
Philippine commission. They were
road in full , and Immediately drew the
flro of the opponents of the govern-
mont'fl Philippine policy. Hoar ex
pressed his astonishment that such
laws should bo enforced by the gov
ernment authorities. Foraker ( O. )
had read from the revised statutes of
tbo United States the laws of congress
relating to the crime of treason and
similar offenses against the govern
ment and said that the acts passed
by the Philippine- commission were al
most Identical in their language with
the laws enacted by congress In the
days of the fathers of the republic
and that thereW&B nothing unprece
dented or unusual about ibcm. The
Ohio senator was interrupted contin
uously nnd had several warm colloquies
quies with senators who were oppos
ing him. In ono of them , ho announced - .
nouncod with great earnestness that |
the American army never would re-
turn from the Philippines until it re
turned victorious and that gentlemen
In and out of congress , rail about it as
they might , ought to thoroughly un
derstand that fact. In concluding the
debate , Hoar poured oil on the trou
bled waters of the senate , maintain
ing that men might well differ on any
of the great questions now before the
country , but that all wore thoroughly
loyal to the country and wore doing
their duty as they saw It.
Early In the day Scott ( W. Va. ) de
livered a speech in which ho advo
cated an Investigation of the San Bias
route for nn Isthmian canal , and Hans-
brough made a carefully prepared ad
dress on his bll ) to provide n national
system of irrigation of arid lands.
At the conclusion of Hansbrough's
speech the Irrigation bill was ordered
to bo the unfinished business when
the Plilllppino tariff bill Is disposed of.
