General Deficiency Bill Wind * Up Tlieso

WASHINGTON , Aug. 3. The last of the
appropriation bills the deficiency was
passed by the senate this evening , after It
had bocn under discussion nearly the entire -
tire day. The bills for the admission of
New Mexico and Arizona to statehood were
reported to the senate and placed on the
calendar. The house bill for the protection
of persons furnishing materials and labor
for the construction of public works was
Tliu deficiency appropriation bill was then
taken up by the senate. Among the coimnlt-
tco amendments adopted was one appropri
ating $ lgOOC.VJ to pay the judgments
rendered by the court of claims In favor of
the Southern I'aclllc railway.
This opened the question of the rotations
between the general government and the
Pacific railroads , Mr. White , democrat of
California , Inquiring whether It was the
purpose of the appropriation committee to
provide for all the judgments of the court
of claims against the United States. Mr.
Cockroll , chairman of the appropriation com
mittee , replied that It was the ! urposo to
pay nil final judgments , except as to the
bonded railroads , but the Southern Pacific
railroad wan not a bonded company.
It was doubtful , said Mr. White , whether
the Item should have been put Into the
bill , In view of the unsettled conditions of
the government claims , not only against
these railroads , but against their stockhold
ers. The question arose , ho said , whether
It would not bo better to let the matter re
main unsettled until the government claims
were fully adjusted. The amcndine-nt was
A strong discussion wan brought out by an
amendment proposed by Mr. Call to pay
naval ofllrers and sailors , or their heirs , the
difference between their sea pay -and shore
pay for the time they served on vessels
which never went to sea from ISfiO to 18C5.
Three such claims had been allowed by tie |
court of claims , when congress Invoked the
statute of limitations and barred all future
claims more than six years old. Mr. Halo
opposed the amendment , as did also Sen
ators George. Pryo and Chandler , while Sen
ators Hoar and Galllnger advocated It.
Mr. Cockrcll then moved to lay the amend
ment on the table , which was agreed to.
On an amendment proposed by Mr. Illanch-
ard , but which was ruled out of order , Mr.
DIanchard appealed from the decision of the
chair and Inaugurated obstructive tactics
by making the point of no quorum. On the
roll call flfly-one senators , eight more than
n quorum , answered to their names.
Mr. IHanchard's amendment gave rise to a
very unusual scene In the senate , for Mr.
Allen demanded that the remarks of Mr.
Cockrcll , when making his point of 'order
against the amendment , should bo read by
the reporter. Mr. Cockrell thereupon re
peated his statement , which Mr. Allen Inti
mated was not the same as the one first
made when the clause in the rule was not
stated , and Insisted upon the reading of the
stenographer's notes. Senators Hale , Tucker
and other republicans and democrats explained -
plained that the rules did not require a
senator In raising a point of order to state
what rule It came under , leaving that ques
tion to the presiding officer. The pros and
cons were fully discussed , until ( lie presiding
ofllcer ( Mr , Jarvls ) directed the reporter's
notes to be read. This was done , and Mr.
Cockrcll's supplemental statement was con
firmed and Mr. Allen proved to have been
In error.
The question recurred on the appeal from
the decision of the chair , but Mr. Halo moved
to lay the appeal on the table * and this was
At 0:20 : the bill was passed and the report
of the conferees on the river and harbor bill
was submitted , but was not acted on. After
a short oxccutlvo session , at G:30 : the sen

WASHINGTON , Aug. 3. Farmers bulletin
No. 19 , Issued by the Department of Agricul
ture , gives some directions concerning the
preparation and use of a few of the insectl
cldo agents having the widest range and at
tended with the greatest usefulness , economy
and case ot application. There are constant
calls for Information of the character con
tained In the bulletin , and the effort has
bocn made to give In a concise yet com
plete manner the best method of preparing
and applying the remedies suggested. The
overwhelming experience of the past dozen
years , the bulletin says , makes It almost un
necessary to urge on the ground of pecuniary
returns the adoption ot the measures recom
mended against Insects. To emphasize the
value of such practice It Is only necessary
to call attention to the fact that the loss to
orchard , garden and farm crops frequently
amounted to from 1C to 75 per cent of the
entire product , and Innumerable Instances
could bo pointed out where such loss has
been sustained year after year , whllo now ,
by the adoption of remedial measures ,
larger yields nro secured with Insignificant
expenditure for treatment. It has been es
tnbllshed that In the case of the apple crop
the spraying will protect from 25 to 7C per
cent of the fruit which would otherwise be
wormy , and this at a cost ot only about 10
cents per tree for labor and material ,
The cotton crop , which formerly In years
of bad Infestation by the leaf worm was es
timated to be Injured to the extent of $30.-
000.000 , Is now comparatively free from such
Injury owing to the general use of arscnl-
Showings of like Import could be adducer
In regard to many ether leading staples , bul
the foregoing , the bulletin says , are sufTlclonl
to emphasize the money value of Intelllgenl
action against Insect enemies.

Mr. Dunphy of Now York objected and

secretary Lumont Dlsnpprcnei the Sentence
of the Court Miirtlul.
WASHINGTON , Aug. 3. Secretary'La-
mont today disposed of the case of First
Lieutenant James Maney , who was tried by
court martial as the result of the killing of
Captain Hedberg at Fort Sheridan , near
Chicago. The lieutenant had been previously
tried and acquitted by the civil courts on a
charge of murder. The charge proved be
fore the court martial was conduct unbe
coming an officer In assaulting his superior
officer. Of this charge he was found guilty
and sentenced to bo publicly reprimanded.
After a thorough examination of the case ,
which has been before the department for
many weeks. Secretary Lament today en
dorsed upon the record of the court , "Dis
approved by the department. " This finally
ends the cme and Lieutenant Maney will not
bo reprimanded nor will he again be tried.
No reason Is assigned for the department's
action and It Is left to surmise whether the
sentence was regarded as Insufficient , or ,
as Is more probable , whether the view Is
taken that the lieutenant's acquittal of the
more serious charge of murder by the civil
court should stop further proceedings grow
ing out of the bame offense , for Secretary
Lament has uniformly shown himself to be
very jealous of encroachment upon the Ju
dicial bench. Inasmuch as the sentence was
not one of dismissal. It did not como before
the president for his action.
Interesting Though Horrible Observations
of it Coimtl In Turk-jr.
WASHINGTON , Aug. 3. United States
Consul Jewett , at Slvas , Turkey , sends to
the Department of State an Interesting ac
count of the cholera outbreak In that city.
Ho argues strongly from his personal ob
servation that the disease is not contagious ,
and In proof tells of the children playing In
the gutters running with water polluted
with cholera excrotla , which water Is also
used to wash Infected linen and the house
hold utensils In which meals are cooked and
served. Another case Is where the well
occupied the same bed with the sick , some
times t'ireo husband , wife and child In
bed together , ono purging and vomiting.
In splto of these practices 82 per cent of
the population escaped the disease. The
consul gives an account of the feeble and Im
potent attcmnt of the authorities , local and
national , to stamp out the disease , telling
how the quarantine directors , who were
paid $7 each for two months service , cor
ruptly allowed people to pass the lines for
fees. After May 30 the government rec
ognized no cases of cholera , although they
occurred at the rate of fifteen cases and
three deaths a week.
J. Sterling Morton nyx Something Must lie
llano to Kv p Up thn Forests.
WASHINGTON , Aug. 3. Responding to a
resolution of the senate. Secretary Morton
has laid before that body a reply In which
ho nays that experiments | n arbor culture
throughout ho United States arc very much
needed. Ho says that the denuding of the
forests IB progressing at the rate of 30,000
acres per day. The distribution of plno seed
among Inexperienced people has not proven
of utility , and he recommends that young
trees bo bought Instead. The mainten
ance of extensive forests , ho says , Increases
the rainfall In tholr vicinity , but such forests
consume and modify the distribution of
water supplies In a far greater degree than
they cause rainfall.

of Union Soldier * .
3. ( Special to The Dec. ) This Is practically
the last day of the Interstate reunion o ( the
Oraiul Army of the Kopubllc. Many will
leave tonight and tomorrow every one will
gather up their frying pans and blankets
and retire peaceably nnJ orderly to their
homes an they did at the close of the war ,
almost thirty years ago. That the reunion
has been a success no one who has seen the
crowds and witnessed the enthusiasm will
doubt. The old soldiers ot southern Ne
braska ami western Kansas have come
to love the meadow camp and the little
grove where they have listened to the elo-
( luence of their leaders year after year.
They appreciate the kindly hospitality of
the people of Superior and willingly make
great sacrifices rather than miss being with
their old comrades once each year.
It almost , seems as If the farms and
ranches must be deserted for miles around
when one elbows his way through the crowd
that swarms Cnmp Lincoln.
John J , Ingulls , the ex-senator from Kan
sas , and Hon. John M. Thiirston of Omaha
are the drawing cards today and each train
Is loaded with crowded humanity , turning
out to hear the wily Kansan and the silver-
tongued orator from Nebraska. Many have
coino by wagon from fifty miles over the
Kansas line , and farmers who do not know
how they nro to hold out through the com
ing winter have como In splto-nt everything.
List evening Captain Hunter's Flambeau
club gave an exhibition and bombarded the
camp with fireworks from the crest of the
hill. Tonight the exhibition was repeated.
Around last evening's camp lire a largo
crowd gathered to listen to the humor of
Major Lew Hanback and the stories of Col
onel Dick Dine. Mrs. Pond of Itcd Cloud
rendered a recitation and now and then the
whole assembly would burst forth with some
rousing old war song.
All the bands and drum corps mustered
this morning for review and then formed to
escort Senator Ingulls and Mr. Thurston
from the train to Camp Lincoln. The whole
camp , with the exception of the physically
disabled , which each year forms a larger
element In a Grand Army assembly , turned
out. Commander Adams and his mounted
aid header ! the procession and the two orators
tors were given a rousing reception at the
At the speakers' stand they were received
with the greatest enthusiasm. Ingalls was
the first speaker and congratulated the man
agers of the Interstate reunion on the mag
nificent assemblage and thanked the auJlenco
for the warmth of greeting.
"Since I spoke to you a year ago , " he said ,
"many things have happened , many have
crossed the frontier of the kingdom of the
dead , to whose boundaries we are all fast
approaching. As I came through Kansas this
morning I witnessed a dreary procession of
mea who had been battling with the pltllass
forces ot nature and were forced to give up
the struggle. As an Inhabitant of more than
thirty years on the frontier , I have often
heard It said that the rain belt Is moving
westward. I don't believe a word of It. Wo
have been trying to raise corn In western
Kansas long enough. Beyond the line drawn
north from the Gulf of Mexico no moisture
but from Irrigation can bo depended upon.
Buffalo nourished there before white men
came , and If settlers will graze their herds
of cattle and horses that region will suppjrt
a peaceful and contented people , but it Is
amply demonstrated that It will not ralso.
"Another condition confronts us that al
most amounts to civil war. I recently passed
through West Virginia. All along the line
were opposing lines of soldiers and strikers.
It was like passing through an enemy's coun
try thirty years ago , and , coming to Chicago ,
I was kept In that city as in a city held by
siege. The only difference between despotism
and a republic Is that one Is a government
of law and the other Is a government cf
persons. There Is ono class In this country
who would make good strangers among any
nation of the world. A class that has known
no law but the bayonet ; no means of redress
but bomb and stlleito. I am not opposed to
foreign emigration , but for the dregs ,
sewage and scum of European humanity the
gates of Castle Garden should never swing
Inward. One of the rights of American citi
zens Is free emigration. With me ,
when I was a prisoner of war In
Chicago , there were thousands of men
deprived of this right. The men who de
prived us of that right deserved the same
fate as the rebels of 1861. I don't know that
I ever before said anything laudatory of
Graver Cleveland , but , partisan as I am , I
say that when the president ordered the
army to open the gates of trafflc ho did one
act for which every citizen should be thank
ful -nut that was only ono virtue among
a thousand sins. I am no pessimist ; 1 be
lieve that the American nation can solve any
question that may confront It. and this
nation shall not perish from the earth.
He discussed the meeting at the unveiling
of the Leo monument at Richmond sixty
days ago , and the present sentiment of the
south toward the north. Continuing , he
Bald"But If great principles are maintained
this government shall not become a gov
ernment of persons Instead of laws.
In the afternoon Ingalls was followed by
Hon. John M. Thurston. He said : 'Thero
has been no time In the" history of the re
public that there has been such need of
bravo men. I am glad to meet bravo men
whoso patriotism has been tested , renew ng
once more their fealty and loyalty to tbu
patriotism In our country today. In every other
great problem of government , and wo need
patriotism In our country today. In every ether
and of the whole civilized .world the oppor
tunities of people are limited by conditions
and heredity which cannot be shaken off , and
I flnd a man born abroad coming here ,
with the right to enjoy equal prlv-
legos , trying to uproot and destroy our gov
ernment , I feel llko saying. Go back from
whence you came or wo will set out the
old bayoneta and send you back. No such
man need to try to bring about better gov
ernment with dagger and bomb. If there
Is aught that Is wrong there Is ample rem
edy In the constitution and ballot box. That
country and that country alone Is prosperous
In which every man has an opportunity to
work every work day In the year at a fair
nrlco. Every man should do his best to
bring about such a condition In the way ho
thinks best. If you do this you wl do as
great a work as when you pinned the star
to our glorious banner with your Immortal
bayonets. These are critical days , but It Is
not the tlmo to criticise the government ,
but to stand by It and let neither party nor
prejudice stand In the way of patriotism.
This land was given that the earth's troubled
millions might flnd here a homo of rest and
peace ; it was given that the oppressed of
every land might here flnd a refuge ana
freedom , and that It should become a peace
ful valley , full of happy homes , with the
blossliiK of God upon us all. "
Resolutions wore passed unanimously
thanking Commander Adamn and the people
of Superior for their tireless work In mak
ing the reunion a success.
In the evening Hon. 13. N. Davis of Kan
BUS addressed the camp lire and good stories
and songs whlled away the last evening of
