WASHINGTON , Jan. 14. It was the In
tention of the house to proceed with the
diplomatic and consular appropriation bill
toJay , but owing to the cxiltod condition
of affairs In Havana and. the wildly exag
gerated reports afloat they decided to avoid
the possibility of opening up a Cuban dc-
bate by relliiulahlng the day to 'tho commit
ted on clalma In charge of 'bllla ' on the pri
vate calendar. Hoforo this order was en
tered upon the agricultural iblll was patted.
Most of the day was consumed In a filibuster
against a. bill to pay the publishing house
of the Mothodlst Episcopal church , south , at
Nashville , Teun. , $288,000 on account of seiz
ure and uo of the property of the corpor
ation during the war. This took up the
tlmo until D o'clock , when the house ad-
When the house adjourned last night the
amendment to the agricultural appropria
tion bill providing for the publication ot
another edition of the "Horso Hook" wa
pending. Today the friends of the amcndmcn
compromised with the appropriations com
mlttco by agreeing to a reduction of the
number to 1)o printed from 150.000 to 75,000
As amended the bill was passed.
The resolution accepting the Invitation o
the government of Norway to participate In
the International Fisheries exposition a
Bergen from May to September , 1898 , was
culled up by Mr. SlmpUIns ( rep. , Mass.
.Mr. Cannon , chairman of the appropriations
committee , said ho thought on the exposition
question congress was running wild. Wo
had had domestic expositions at Phlla
dclphla , Chicago , Nov. Orleans , Cincinnati
Louisville , Atlanta and Nashville , and were
now about to have ono at Omaha. Abroai
we had participated In the expositions a
Vienna Paris , I3erlln and Brussels. The
anxiety of wculd-'bo commissioners to have
the honor nnd glory of our country rep
resented at these foreign expositions was
agonising. Now here came this exposition
at Bergen. Twenty thousand dollars to be
appropriated now. If this resolution passed
congress would be called upon to foot the
bill for a deficiency of $20.000. Ho gave 1
as hla deliberate judgaient that the Interests
o the United States did not require our
participation In this exposition. If we dli
our duty by the Paris exposition that would
bo enough.
Mr. Stnipklns ( rep. . Mass. ) In reply callci
attention to the fact that Norway , while
second In the world to no country In fish
eries , hail accepted our Invitation to partici
pate at Philadelphia and Chicago. Common
courtesy and decency demanded that we
accept this Invitation.
Mr. Uolllvcr of Iowa thought wo vvoulc
not In the next decade participate In an ex
position which would be of moro practical
value to the United States. The resolution
was adopted.
Another resolution was adopted on motion
of Mr. Perkins ( rep. , la ) directing the
director of the geological survey to prepare
nnd have printed 10,000 ccples of a map of
Alaska showing the most feasible routes to
the gold fields.
The house then went Into committee of the
whole/ for the consideration of Tiills on the
private calendar.
The property of the corporation , which was
located at Nashville , Teun , , was seized ant
held by the United States from 1SC2 to 1800
when It was turned ever to the owners
Mr. Cooper referred to the fact that the
profits of the concern were applied to th6
support of the superannuated ministers
Thousands ot petitions from icllgloua Undies
ho said , had been iccclvcd , urging the passage -
sago of the bill.
Mr. Dalzell ( rep , Pa. ) inaugurated a fili
buster against the measure by demanding
the reading of the report on the 'bill , which
consisted of about fifty pagw , the reading
of which would consume several hours. At
the conclusion of an hour , when Mr. Dal-
zell'a tlmo expired , the friends of the bill
attempted to secure an agreement for closIng -
Ing the debate , but all requests looking to
this end were objected to.
Mr. Rlchard ° on ( dem. , Tenn ) appealed to
the other sldo to allow a vote on the bill.
JMr. Sayera ( dem. , Tex. ) said 'this ' was as
jt t a claim as had ever been piesented to
congress. The amount asked by the Methodist
Hplscopal church , south , in thta bill , he
paid , was not BO per cent of the amount
which could be recommended In the court
ot claims. Leading bishops nnd divines
north and south had endorsed It. Com
mon justice , not charity , demanded Its pas
Mr. Croavenor ( rep , O. ) made a ton-min
ute speech In support of the 'bill. He said
ho knew personally enough about the claim
to say that $338,000 was a very low estimate
of the damage sustained by the corpora
tion ,

called to the assertion mndo by emplojcs of
the pension ofllce that ho appears as attor
ney In a pension case while representing the
Fourth Nebraska district In congress , he
said there was not a wotd of truth In the
charge , and related how his name appears
on the outside of certain papcts , but not as
attorney. Some time ago , ho sajs , he was
called upon by the commissioners ot cue of
the counties In his district to Interest him
self In the case of Mrs. Ada C. Cheney , widow
of Jackson W. Cheney. Affidavits , he ex
plains , wore sent him for filing In which the
circumstances surrounding the case were set
forth , showing that the claimant was In need
of governmental aid , a number of small
children being actually w Ithout the neces-
saiics of life. Knowing the character of re
lief commissioners nnd having somewhat of a
knowledge of the case Judge Stark sajs he
Hied nllldavlts Indorsing them as a member
ot congress from the IFourth district , the

Is on record as representing the claimant
before the Pension department. Judge Stark
called on Commjssloner Evans today for an
explanation , but none could bo given throwIng -
Ing any light as io how the mistake oc
curred. He said to. The Boo that he was
cognizant of the law relating to such mat

WASHINGTON , Jan. U , 7\io senate com
mittee on privileges and olectlono today de-
Idcd to make an adverse rcyoit upon Hon.
[ , W Corbctt's claim to a seat In the senate
i-om Oregon. The vote was 1 to 3 and was
Ml cn partisan Hues , except that Senator
Hmau.3 , republican , who was absent , was
ounted upon his authority In or/position to
Ir Cort'ott.
Tlierawere txvo volts , the first being upon
imtlon to declare MrCorbott entitled to
ila teat , which was supported by Messrs ,
Chandler , Hoar and Prltchard , icpubllcans ,
ml opioscd by Messrs. Caffcry and Pottus ,
emocrats , Allen , populist , and liurrons , re-
mbllcan. Mr , Spooner republican , was
laired with Mr. Turley , democrat , the former
or anil the latter against the motion , A
no'lon vvis then made to declare that Mr ,
'orbett was no * entitled to his seat and was
arrled by the above vote reversed. Tne
otlag was preceded by a quite general
discussion , based upon a report prepired by
Senator Pettus , on behalf of the opposition.
This report took the position that the ques
tion Involved Is practically the same as that
InvolveJ In the Mantle case and that this
case should bo allowed to stand ns a
precedent. Senator Pettus made nn argu
ment In favor of establishing a principle ot
action In such cases nnd allowing It to
stand , taking the position that thcro was

time the political complexion ot the senate

WASHINGTON , Jan. 14. The president
today submitted to congress the awards nnd
report of the commission appointed under
the terms of the treaty of 1S9G to adjust the
claims of the British subjects for losses sus
tained through the seizure of their sealing
vessels In Boring sea. In his letter of trans-
initial the president sa > s :
The report of the secretary of state pre
sents a clear epitome of the award and ren
ders unnecessary any extended observations
on my part further than to say that I cor
dially coincide with the recommendations
tally colncmldo with the recommendations
nnd that our treaty obligations demand
prompt and favorable action by congress ,
which I urgently hope may be. taken to the
end that these long pending questions tuny
be finally and satisfactorily terminated.
The total amount necesenry to tatlsfy the
award of the commissioners Is $173,151.26 ,
which I recommend bo appropriated.
Secretary Sherman's report seta out the
appointment of the commissioner ! ) to adjust
the claims and/ / submits a list ot the awards
made , showing In detail the amount allowed
cn account ot caah of the following named
vessels : Carolina , Thornton , Onward , Favor
ite , Sayvvard , Anna Dock , Alfred Adams ,
Grace , Dolphin , Ada , Triumph , Jlianite , Path
finder , "Black " Diamond , Lily , Ariel , Minnie ,
Wlmiltrcd , Kate , Henrietta anl Ctacur and
Hattle. There wore also allowed fourteen
personal claims to the following named per
sons : lluilroe , Morgotlch , Guttormsen , Nor
man , Ogllvie , Blake , Warren , Kollly , Fescy ,
Lalng , Olson , Kecse , Petit and Lunderg.
The principal ot the claims for vessels
allowed amounts to $261,188.31. and Intciest
on this sum Is allowed to the amount of
$143790.30. making the total allowed $413-
19.72. The personal claims with Interest
swell this total to $163,454.27. Then the coi-
respondenco shows a further allowance was
inudu on account of the Black 4'lamond. and
on the claim of James Gaudln , mate of the
Ada , two claims which bad been
originally thrown out by tlio com
missioners on the ground of lack
of jurisdiction , but which were
afterward admitted to consideration on the
Jo'ot application of Secretary Gluey and Sir
Julian Pauncefote. The admission of these
two claims raised the total of the claims aim
Interest allowed to the sum mentioned hi
the president , namely , $473,151.20.
Secret arj Sherman makes the point In his
letter that the treaty under which the avpjrds
were made requires that the appropriation
slull bo made to pay them within sK mcntl's
after the asccitalnmcnt of the full amount.

Mr. John W. Frela , the North Carolina

Mrs. Morgan J. Wlllard of New York re
cently read A paper bcforo the Woman's
Lonsuo , of 'which she Is nn officer , on thu
subject ot "Woman's Greatest Troubles"
After enumerating thorn lu order , and In
telligently Heating the subjects of "Unro-
qulttcd Affection , " "Lack of Appieolation , "
"Loss of Friends , " Poverty , " etc. , she con
tinued :
"But , unfortunately , tho. greatest trouble
which over comes Into nuy woman's life U
loss of health. Other troubles can , bo over
come. Tlmo mellows the grief which la BO
overwhelming at the hour1 we cloie the OVPO
of our dyliiE relatives or friends. Poverty
n-.av bo banished and the lost homo null
soclil standing regained. Rvcn unrcciultted
affection may bo lived down , but broken
health blights Iho life , mulct mines the spirit ,
dostrojs beauty , embitters the nature.tulns
the llfo nnd , too often , makes death n boon.
A sickly wonun Is the saddest wicck upon
the shoals of life. She Is not only miser
able herself but often brings greater mlsetv
to those about her the loving friends vvhuio
lives are bound up In hers. Woman's gioat-
cst trouble Is 111 health' ' "
After describing1 many of Iho diseases tn
which women aio specially subject , the lec
turer continued1
"But think Heaven thoio Is nn escape.
Fortunately there Is a relict for w onion
oven In their lowest pl alcal condition.
Modern science nnd modern discovery have
worked for jcnra on this problem which
if. , lu fact , the greatest problem of uro ,
namely , how to produce happiness , irad It
Is a cause for gratitude that those efforts
have been successful. There arc many things
which have been dlscovcicd which may help
women in their phjslcal troubles , nnd thcro
Is one dlscovciy which certainly cures. I
have known many women who have been la
the depths of ph > slral blttcrneis , and who
aie now on the heights of happiness. I have
(3ocn ( them taken from a condition of sick
ness and misery , and know that they are to
day liealthy and happy. I also know that
the means by which they were icstored I'Cij
been cndoised by the highest authorities ,
medloil and scientific , both abrcail nnd In
America. H la commended In the warmest
terms by such eminent men as Ilcv. Dr. Kan-
kin and Bishop Wilson , nnd by such reliable
women as Mis. Annie Jcnnoss Millrr and
Mrs. Phclps. I myself , hive used It , acid
and cannot recommend it lee highly. Tbo
ramo of this dlscovciy which has done an
much for womanhood , h Warner's Sato Cuic ,
and It can bo seemed by nuy woman who
feels the need of some- reliable friend upon
whom she can dcocnd , "
"In conclusion , Mrs Wlllard sold :
"Woman Is able to endure suffering far
moro than man but there la no reason why
f.lic should be compelled to do so. She may
be able to endure i.wln , but she was not cie
atod for that purpose. Her mission In llfo
It to diffuse Joy and gladnes.3. Her face be
comes n revelation of heaven vviien wreathed
In happiness , but gives us a glln-pso of all
that Is miserable when depressed by dejec
tion. But , far too oftcci , bco troubles arlso
from her own making. Thoughtlessness ,
oarelcBsnc s and neglect nro too often re
sponsible for the misery which she endures ,
but fortunately , by exercising care and avail
ing herself of the best discoveries of science ,
there Is no icasca why nhe should remain
In n condition of unhapplncss when thcio
Is certain icllcf near at hand. "
The lecture made a deep Impression upon
the ladles of the Lcaguo who heard It , and
there was much discussion upon It after
the session closed It seemed to bo the gen
eral ncntlmcnt that women of the present
day aio beginning to aeo how noedlcsa wcru
the troubles which women formerly endured ,
and how easily they can bu avoided at the
present tlmo by exercising Intelligent caio.
