WASHINGTON , 1) . C. , March .
"I presume ray father was ono of the very
first men In this country to Inquire into tbo
, bility of producing boot sugar In the
nltcd Stnloi , nnd In his Investigations ho
had tbo encouragement If not the actual
support of Daniel Woostor , " said Mr. Henry
T. Oxnard of Grand Island , Nob. , the great
boot sugar manufacturer , who has been in
Washington some days looking after the
sugar bounty law which Is In the McICInloy
tariff act.
"It was by the merest accident that I
learned , recently , that ray father took an Interest -
torost in boot or any ether kind of sugar
making , " continued Mr. Oxnurd. "I , raysolf ,
got Into tbo business by accident. 1 road up
the subject and came to the conclusion that
wo could produce as good sugar ooots as Gnr-
.many or Franco , and having the boots there
4 a * D0 reason why wo could not rauko the
sugar. I wai the ether day looking through
the old papers and letters of my father , who
recently died , aud whoso estate I closed. I
found a letter the data I dlsromombor , but
It was certainly forty years ago from Dan-
lol Webster , to 'Mr. Thomas Oxnnrd , Mnrah-
fled ! , Mass.,1 on the subject of developing
tbo sugar Industry In this country. Mr.
Webster , after expressing the opinion that
wo could produce good and rich sugar boots
' iu this country , said there ought to bo a beat
'sugar factory established. Ho also stated
that ho would take stock In the concern , nnd
not only give it his financial support , but
would himself , on his farm near Marshlield ,
plant at least 100 acres of boots. Those ho
would turn in to the factory. That appears
to bo about tbo first agitation of the subject
of boot sugar development in this country.
I guess they did not attempt It. "
Improved the Service.
It Is well known that the postmaster general -
oral has for a longtime personally subscribed
to all the efficient press clipping bureaus ,
not in order to read what tbo papers are sny-
Ing about him , tor bo hardly oversees any of
the clippings , but in order that his various
assistants and bureau chiefs may be informed
i , concerning any Irregularities concerning
I'-ttho malls and any needs 01 the service all
'over the country. An unozpocted use to
which ono of the clipping bureaus has lately
put this fact was brought to light at tbo
Post-Oftlco d partment today. A Pennsyl
vania paper criticised tbo mall service in its
locality. A clipping from the paper was
sent to the department. An investigation
wag made and the desired change in the
service quickly followed. The paper ut once
printed these facts as evidence of its watch
fulness. The clipping bureau Immediately
hod a fao-simllo of the article in question
produced aud is evidently distributing It by
the thousands as an advertisement.
May Kucilltiite 1'reo Deliver- .
The ton-block system of locating and num
bering country bouses , so successfully Intro
duced in Contra Costa county. California ,
has recently engaged the attention of the
postmaster general , who wants to sec If it is
not of Importance in connection with the extension -
tension of the free delivery Into the country.
Tbo practical workings of the Contra Costa
plan is especially gratifying to all friends of
rural free delivery , because it removes tbo
only obstacle to rapid and accurate service
In the country. It is a ton-block system with
the same usefulness nnd oven groatoi- ac
curacy than that of tbo city system , because
It gives uot only tbo location but the exact
distance of every bonso from u given point.
, marling from a convenient center , say the
'county sent , each mile is divided into ton
X equal parts , or blocks , having a front ago of
thirty-two rods. Two numbers nro assigned
to each block , the odd ones on the loft and
the even ones on the right. Wherever country -
try bouses are near enough to bo situated In
the same block they have the same number , out
are distinguished as follows : 525 , 025A ,
K3B , etc. Distances can be quickly rulcul-
ated from the county scat or from one house
to another by the simple method of 'dividing
the difference by two ( there being two num
bers In each block ) and the result by ton for
answer In miles. As the second stop is in
stantaneous , by the decimal method of point
ing off two places , tbo entire process is very
rapid. For Instance , No , 425 is 218 blocks ,
or tenths of miles , equivalent to 21.3 miles
from the county seat or point of departure.
r { iiltlcant and appropriate names are given
to roads and nil by-roads are further in
dicated by the three words , Local , Connox
and Exit , which have definite and uniform
meanings ; the first having no outlet , usually
terminating in the hills and for local con
venience only ; the second applied to short
connecting roads , and thu third , having no
outlet by land , usually ending at a landing
with a water exit.
Turty JntoroslH I "I rut.
' It's n pretty hard thing for a party to hold |
Us bests together for coneral principle when
irludlvidual members of it uro compelled to
sacrifice individual Interests , " said Senator
Maudorcon , today , in speaking of the man
ner In which democrats In the house were
waiving their interests in local appropria
tions for the general party pledge to keep
down the aggregate amounts to bo expended
byUhis congress. "I know of democrats In
the house , " continued tbo senator , "who
have bills appropriating nionov for tholr own
constituency , and tboy waive tholr interests
iu these measures in order to help tholr
party keep down the general aggregate of
ex pond I lures. Some of these democrats have
bills before tbo house making appropriations
for public building * In tholr own districts ,
end yet they refuse to push the bills simply
because tbe measures make appropriations.
It Is n direct act of subordinating local interests -
osts for the pond of party at largo. I never
board of such obeisance to party , Surely
you could uot flud an intelligent republican
who would do auch a thing. Republicans
first stand by their local constituency , then
party.Aud yet you never see a republican
advocating spendtbriftincst.
Government Funds Well Spent ,
"To my ralnd the government uoverspends
i.Tionoy moro wisely than iu constructing
DUildtues for postolHcos , United States
courts end custom bouses. I hardly bo-
Hove tbo democrats can hold their hosts
together much longer under such pressure as
will bo brought by the .local constituency for
the passage of bills of direct personal interest
to the constituency of members of tbo house.
But should they be compelled to support
local measures the members themnolvos will
feet little orodlt , for they huvo already an-
Qounood a preference to blond by the party
rather thin u coiutltuonoy.
"Another abnormality I notice with the
democrats in this house is following blindly
tbo behests of party ; they refuse to raise
baud or voice against thodostructlon of borne
Intorojts , homo industries , and uot a word of
protest comes when the boldoit march is
wade upon their local factories or ether in-
' krotOf course It would not bo consistent
'for them to aik the products of one Industry
lutside tholr bailiwicks placed upon the free
list and then turn around oud object when
tbo larao principle was to bo applied to their
own Industries. Looking at the situation
from any point of view , tbo democrats are
between two fires. Turn which way they
will tboy hare to stand the tire of some wiup
of tholr party. The party is full of luconsls-
Amnesty for Mormoni.
Attorney General Miller will early this
week present to President Harrison his
opinion upon tbo Mormon auiueaty petition.
Bonator Paddock , who bos boon following
the ir. tu > r up for more than i month called
on the attornny general yesterday , nnd was
assured by him that the president has power
to Issue n c ncral amnesty through the ex
orcise of the pardoning power granted him
by the constitution. Senator Paddock dis
cussed at length with Mr. Miller the policy
of issuing such n pardon , urging very
strongly that the pardon and Its endorse
ment were of such a tone nnd character
ns to rcnlly Justify the department In recom
mending nmnusty end the president In grant
ing It. Senator Paddock says ho has reason
to bopo that the attorney general will ngreo
with him ns to the wisdom of Immediate
action. What the president will do cannot
ho determined. Senator Paddock held n
long Interview with Senator Edmunds , who
nrilvod huro u few days ago. Senator Ed
munds fully ncrocs with him n < i to the wis
dom of tbo policy In granting amnesty to the
petitioning Mormons.
Federal llondi Not Tumble.
Representative Fun&ton of Kansas Is
authority for the statement that the proposi
tion of tbo alliance members of congroas to
tax government bonds would bo unconstitu
tional. Ho said to your correspondent todnv :
"The blowing of Vatson , ICom and Mc-
ICelghan about there being uo tax paid by
banker * upon their bonds deposited to secure
circulation is tbo merest sort ot rot. Why ,
if congress should pass a law taxing k'ovcrn-
niont bonds the supreme court of the United
Stales would sot the law nsldo. It would
not bo constitutional. Ono of tbo founda
tion stones of the federal government U that
no property of the Kovornmcmt or any of Its
Issues shall over bo taxed either by the
parent government or by a state. This fact
must bo well known to these demagogues ,
who are nonUantly crying out against , the
nets of the republican party. Some of them
In the house rail at the republican party be
cause it passed a law exempting government
bonds from taxation , and they declare it was
done In the Interest of the bankers.
"I am astonished that any class would send
such men to congress. In tbo first place tbo
republican , or any othsr party or congress
composed of any sot of men , could not make
a law which would tax govcrumonl bonus.
And , In the second place , when the bonds
were Issued conirross was vexed to find ways
and means nnd favorable provision to induce
buyers to taito the bonds. Many of them
wore sold nt 0 cents on tbe dollar. If tbo
bonus have advanced to a promlum It Is no
doubt the 'fault' of the republican party , I
admit ; It probablv had no business to main
tain tlio credit of tbo government and push
it up so high. "
It Will no a ( iriind AOiilr.
It is bollovcd that the annual encampment
of the Grand Army of the Republic hero
this fall will bo the most largaly attended of
any ever held on account of the national fea
tures which will bo Introduced. Although it
is six months ahead , 10,000 veterans have
already hired quarters and the local committee -
too have already raised $33,043 of the enter
tainment fund. It is expected that there
will bo 100,000 veterans In the city on the day
when the grand review taxes place on Penn
sylvania avonui similar to the ono at tbo
close of the war , when so many thousands of
soldiers , fresh from the field ot battle , made
their last inarch under Uncle Sam.
Indian Clulini Ignored.
Indian Commissioner Morgan gives it as
his opinion that tbo niggardly manner in
which the domocratlc housu has cut down
the appropriations for the Indian schools will
Injure ami sot them back more than progress
has put forward and elevated them during
the past ton years. To bis mind tbo true
way of clvlll/.lug the Indians is to take their
children from the reservations as fast as
they are old enough to leave their parents
and put them In echools , as about 0,000 of
them are now being provided for. Ho thinks
this hns the effect 6f not only educating the
children , but will bavo a good end civilizing
influence upon their parents and older
friends , and restrain the bucks iu konpiug
them from going to war acnlust or commit
ting depredations upon the wbltos. General
Morgan says the bouse has cut the appropri
ations for Indian schools no v established ,
which bavo undertaken lo accept many more
pupils than they bavo ever bad , and that uo
provision whatever has beau made for the half
dozen or moro now schools which have Just
been established in South Dakota. Wyoming
aud other states covered by Tin : BBC.
A great deal of feeling Is being shown by
western republicans hero and humanitarians
generally over the manner in which the dem
ocrats in the house have chopped down ap
propriations for Indian schools , and it is
possiblu that a public subscription will bo
started to mauo good the deficiencies which
must arise in the system , aud to rebuke the
public acts of a parsimonious and dema
gogical democratic party.

orUin of the city officials over the responsi
bility for the wording of thu contract bo-
wccn Messrs. Godfrey & Mcnls and the city
jf Beatrice , whereby the now water works
ilant and mains have been built and laid. It
appears that the intention was to have the
ucccssful bidder on that proposition to also
guarantee and provide for a dally water sup-
ily of 3,000,000 gallons from the wells built
n the Paddock pasture. It now appears
hat through some technicality In the ton-
ract that the water supply guarantee was
not denominated in the bond. The plant is
built , the mains nro laid nil right enough ,
and It only requires the arrival of the big
pumps from Dubuque , la. , to complete the
contract on the part of Godfrey & Meals ,
and then the city will bo required to dullvor
un the money named in the contract , water
or no water.

TIIK BRIC.J The sensation iu t'uo leclslnture
Iho past weak has boon the action of Son-
ntors Brewer and Catch In renouncing their
allegiance to the prohibition plank in tbe
ihuform of the republican party. In view
tf their votes which they explained on tbo
Schmidt bill this action has boon expected
'or some lime by well Informed people , bu
t caused great constornalisn puiong the stat
.ompnrnnco alliance people who were holding
.holr slxtoanth biennial convention In thl
city. Senators Gatch and Brewer represent
sent Polk aud Hancock counties , which bar
always boon strong prohibition , but tbo sen
atom belong to the more liberal class of republicans
publicans nnd believe that it Is for the bcs
titorosU of tholr party thai the liquor quos
tlon bo taken out of politics in this state.
Wben tbo Twenty-fourth general assombl ;
convened tboso gentlemen acknowledged tha
they would vote for a strict license law
which Ihoy could conscientiously support
After the defeat of the Schmidt bill sovera
now license bills were introduced , and it was
well known that Senator Gatoh had a bll
prepared which ho would substitute for the
next license bill Introduced by the demo
ciats. Then the committee on suppression
> t Intemperance , in order to nlvb Senator
Gatch a chnuco to present his substitute bill
reported favorably on sunato file 23 , knowi
ass ibo GronowoQ bill.
Accepted the Chance.
As soon as the Gronowog bill was taken up
Senator Gatch presented the bill now pond
Ing before the senate ; In many particulars
Lhls bill Is similar lo the present Nebraska
law , but Its provisions nro in some cases so
strict that they could not bo enforced. After
careful consideration of tbo bill tbo demo
crats agreed that If Senator Gatch would
permit some compromise amendments they
would support bis bill. At first Senators
Bolter nnd Schmidt wore inclined to onposo
the bill , but with Us democratic amendments
It Is now considered ono of the best license
bills ever introduced in tbo lown assembly
As It now stands there Is no rcasouablodoub
that this bill will bo passed. Whether it
will pass the bouso or not remains to bo seen
Kx-Governor Gear has been bore roost o :
this session lobbying in tbo interest of the
antl-problbltton republicans. Now U is
claimed by BOUIO of Iho well informed anll-
prohlbltlonists of tbo republican party that
four republican members of iho bouso bavo
agreed to support Iho Gatch bill. This
would not bo enough to pass it by ono vote
if all tbo democrats should support it , but
stron * influences will be brought to boar to
have -this bill become a law. Tbo present
prohibitory law has practically divided the
republican party on state issues. By the
passage of this bill It is boned to conciliate
all the members of the republican party. In
presenting the bill Senator Gatch made a
Tory strong speech , -Ho sho\yod up the
fallacy of prohibition , and staled that this
bill was his own , and if any blame was to bo
attached to any ono ho'WHS responsible alone
for this presentation. Ho hoped that it
would become a law , and presented ample
reasons therefor. Senalor Brewer also
made an able address and warmly supported
the Gatch bill. Tha senate will probably
j\oto on this bill about tbo middle of the
week , nnd if Senator Enclo , who has boon
very 111 , is able to bo present , tbo bill will receive -
coivo at least twenty-eight votes. Twenty-
five of those votes will be by democrats , two
by republicans , nnd one Indppondent. thus
transferring Iho great battle on prohibition
into tbo lower house of the assembly.
Temperance 1'ooplo Active.
The temperance folk are leaving no stones
unturned ' to defeat the Gatch oil ! and they
have bitterly denounced Us author as a
trailer to his party and its best Interests.
The problbltlonisls now Ihreaten to with
draw from the republican party , in case this
bili Is passed , and start u party of their own :
but with the withdrawal of the problbltlon
isls it is bollovcd that , wbilo the republican
party would lose about 15,000 votes , they
would regain more than 40,000 of liberal re
publicans who are now counted as Inde
pendent democrats. If such is tbe case the
party has no reason to fear the passage of the
Gatch bill and in fact It would bo a desirable
thing for tbe republicans who have the best
Interests of the state nt heart.
Another state of affairs has arisen during
the past \vook when tbo republicans nomi
nated the appointees for st&to institutions.
It has been customary heretofore for the re
publicans to equally divide , or nearly so , tbo
partisanship of the appointees of such Insti
tutions , in ordnrto bettor satisfy tbo pcoplo
that such places are fairly conducted in re
gard to their best Interests. This year Ihoro
were thirty-live places in the state institu
tions to bo filled by appointment , nnd et the
Joint caucus of tbo republicans they noml ,
natod partisans to fill thirtv of tbcso places.

Tlien tlio Democrat * Got Mnd.
The democrats wont Into caucus the nnxt
day and roftfsod to nominate nny ono to fill
these five places , claiming that they had not
boon treated with tbe usual courtesy recog
nized by former assemblies. This now
loaves an open broach which will draw Iho
party lines very close In making up the di
rectory of state institutions , Tbo democrats
claim that they should have had an equal
nuinbar ot places in these institutions , as
they received 8,000 moro votes at the last
campaign on tholr state ticket than did tbo
the republicans. Now that the republicans
have thrown down the bnrs , there Is no
doubt that is Iowa should go domocratio and
Ihoy would gain control of too legislature
the republicans would receive no recognition
among the appointments on tbo directories
of slate icslltutions.
Tbo World's fair commlltoe'rocommonded
tbe appropriation of 220,000 some time ago ,
but now the senate aud house are over
whelmed with petitions from various portions
tions of the stale asking that this appropria
tion do not oxcoud $100,000. While It Is
thaugbt that the assembly will uot appropri
ate the former amount they may compromise
and allow tbo Iowa Columbian commission
considerable more than 1100,000 , There is a
crreat adversity of opinion iu regard to the
amount that could bo wisely expended for
an Iowa exhibition al the World's fair which
would bo entirely creditable to tbe state.
Tbo fight for the secretaryship ol tha sen
ate has assumed a now phase bv the Intro.
duotlon of a bill by Senator Perry providing
for the remuneration of S , N , Parsons , who
has acted as secretary since Lieutenant Gov
ernor Bestow assumed the chair as presiding
officer of tbo sonato. Such a bill will un
doubtedly pass tbo senate , but It is not llkolv
that the house will concur.
llutli llnuicheit Involved.
This fight has Involved both branches of
tbe legislature aud will yet have to bo set
tled in tbo fcupreuio court. Both sides are
defiant and will concede nothing to the ether
in tlio matter. Parsons is doing the work ,
and CHIT Is present each day in readiness to
ossumo the position from which he was deposed -
posed , after being elected , In order to break
a deadlock. He is taking this couwo of ao-
lion in pursuance of adviro from Chairman
Mack of tlio state republican committee ,
Speaker Mitchell of the house , and other
prominent republicans , Just bow It will end
cannot be foreseen ,
The actuation caused by the Fjnn-Bolvel
fight In the senate ten days ago bos about
died out , Neither sldo has npolotrlzod to the
senate for disgracing tbo chamber with a
fight. Senator Finn is actively engaged In
securing evidence In order to prosecute the
suit began against tbe Bedford Democrat
which published the scandalous article
which caused tbe row.
Neither body of tbo legislature can point
to tbelr record ab law makers with nny cou-
stdorablo prldo so far this sonlon. It Is now
qulto likely that adjournment will take
place between tbo 25th and 80th of March.

WASHINGTON , D. C. , March 0. The Bureau
of the American Republics is informed that
19,578 emigrants arrived at the state .of Rio

of whom 10,8.18 were Italians , 2,190 Russians ,
1,901 Spaniards , 1,401 Germans and the
balance of diverse nationalities.
The bureau has received by Iho last mull
from Chill a statement containing shipping
statistics for the port of Valparaiso , from
which tbo following comparison is taken :
During the year 1891 000 steamers , of 508,008
tons , and 408 sailing vossoln , of 370,115 tons ,
or a total of 1.048 vessels , of 945,523 tons , ar
rived at the above port , against 781 steamers ,
of 787.794 tons , aud 480 sailing vessels ,
of 410,331 tons , or a tolal num
ber of I'J07 vessels , of 1,204,145
tons , arriving In 1890. Iu 181)1 ) , 599 steamers ,
of 504,442 tons , and 421 sailing vessels , of
375,818 tons , or n total of 1,020 vessels , of
940,200 tons , departed from the port of Val
paraiso , against 7S3 steamers , of 787,12. ) tons ,
and 4S7 sailing vessels , of 415,952 tons , or a
total of 1,270 vessels , of 1,305,037 tons , de
parted from tbo same port Curing the year
1890. Wbilo neither the tonnage nor the
number of vessels arriving and departing
from Valparaiso during the year 18UI was
as great as In 1890 , yet when It is remem
bered that during the greater part of the
year the country was ravaged by civil'war ,
it will bo scon that there was quite a satis
factory progress in tbo shipping of the port.

3roat streams of rod lire shot heavenward

were brilliantly illuminated.
Owing to the almost unprecedented condi

of Saturday night , the firemen found great
difficulty In reaching the blaze. Hose com
pany No. 3 was first on the ground , but
when It attempted to run a line of hose
l through the alloy at the back of the bloclc
the horses got stuck In a big snow bank , con
sequently It was fully live minutes before a
stream of water was turned on.
In tbo meantime the llro had snroad south

of smoke were pouring forth from the ooniloe

The streams were turned upward from the

They only served to keep the brick wall cool

There was considerable delay In raising ;

nearly up to tbo blazing windows. For
fully fifteen minutes all the streams of water ,
and there wcro seven of them , didn't seem to
have any effect on the flames , and It looked
as If the flro had got beyond control. Three'
more hose companies caino up mm laid la

began to toll and the flames died down , but
only for a moment. They l-rolto out afresh
just south of the middle of the roof. A ladder -
