countrleo. The spread of the scale from the
point of original Infestation In the San Jose
valley was somewhat rapid , Us areas In
creasing In every direction , but more rapidly
toward the wcat and north. Afterwards It
spread throughout California and Oregon
to Washington , Idaho , Nevada , Arizona and
Mexico , and later U manifested Itself U
Virginia , Maryland , Indiana , PeaD ylvan ! &
and other places In the east. The pest la
ald to spread relentlessly and steadily over
all deciduous fruit trees trunks , limbs , foli
age and fruit. It la only a question of two
or three years before the death of the plant
attacked Is brought about and the piwlbll-
Ity of Injury , which , from experience with
other ecalc enemies of deciduous plants ,
might be easily Ignored or thought Insig
nificant , Is noon utartllngly demonstrated.
The general appearance which the scales
present U of a grayish , very ellghtly rough
end , scurfy deposit. The natural rich , red
dish color of the young limbs of peach , peat
and apple treca are quite obscured when

then have every appearance of being coated
with nshro. Fruit severely attacked be
comes distorted , rough and pitted , frequently
cracking and may eventually fall prema
turely , or at least become unmarketable. The
ocale Is frequently carried about on fruit ,
there being cases on record where California
pears and applet found on Investigation to
bo Invested with male and female ceales ,
have been "bought from fruit stalls In var
ious parts of the country. The principal
method of the spread of the young lice Is
by means of other Insects and by birds.

WASHINGTON , Feb. 4. The Agricul
tural department has Issued a pamphlet
prepared by L. O. Howard , entomologist ,
relating to the gipsy moth In America , In
which an account Is given of the Introduc
tion and spread of the pest In ( Massa
chusetts and of the efforts made by the
Btnto to exterminate It. The publication Is
fully Illustrated with maps of the territory
affected and with pictures of the Insect
df nt different stagca of life. In the
course of the eight years during which the
work of extermination has been carried on
by the btato authorities there ha.3 been a
steady Improvement In the efficacy of the
Insecticide measures tiucd. During the past
two years work has been carried on with
great energy In forest lands nnd there 'tho '
ordinary measures of extermination adopted
liavo been supplemented with extensive
clearing out of underbrush , thinning out of
the woo.ls by the felling of a certain pro-
mrtlon of the timber , and by
jurnlng over the ground. The writer
leartlly congratulates the state co the man
ner in which the work ; of extermination has
been carried on. Its effort In this direction ,
ho says , will rank as one of the great experi
ments In economic entomology In the his
tory of the world. There has been no
WBsto of state funds , no disastrous experi
ments , the methods used have been not only
sensible , but Ingenious to a high degree
and the total outcome of the work has been
of great value , not only 'to the country at
large , but to all civilized portions of the
It Is true that a large amount of money
hn'j been expended and It Is also true that
much moro must bo expended before ex
termination can bo accomplished , but It Is
undoubtedly safe to say that the money
which has been and will bo tpent by the
state In this work Is but a drop In 'the
bucket to the loss which would have been
occasioned by the Insect had it been allowed
to spread unchecked. At the present time
there can be little doubt that the extermina
tion of the Insect Is possible and that It
will only bo a question of a few years , if
adequate state appdoprlutlons are continued.
Were the appropriations to lapse a single
year , 'the work which has been dene during
the past six years would be largely lost.
The $775,000 already appropriated would
have been spent In vain. The writer re-
fera to the discovery of three large colon leu
ot the insect during the past two years
outside of the boundaries of the survey of
1S91 and suggests that not only should a
warning circular bo sent to almost every
property holder lua border of at least two
towns deep around the line of 1S31 with a
roqncoi for Information , but that a thoi-
ough Inspection of these towns he made.

tlca to the annexation of Hawaii In the ex
ecutive session of the uenate today. He
trade some additional points agalcst the
availability of Hawaii for defensive pur

WASHINGTON , Feb. 4. Speaking to a
question of personal privilege In the ecnnto
toJay Mr. Lindsay ( dem. , Ky. ) commented
sharply on the motives of the author and
promoters of the resolution recently passed
by the legislature of Kentucky demanding
his resignation as senator. Mr. Lindsay ,
nftcr denning hln position on the financial
question , made It clear that ho was the
representative of the whole people of Ken
tucky and not in any sense tlje agent of the
Kentucky legislature. Above all he said he
vtaa a senator for the whole American people -
plo and as such would perform his duties
nnd cast hU vole In accordance with his
convictions and with the dictates of his con-
No business of Importance was transacted
In the brief open session. After the cxecutlv
session of the house the senate adjournei
Mr. Lindsay In his speech said :
With the relations existing between
senator ana his constituency this body hn
Konernlly no concern. But there are ex
ceptlonnl cases In which a senator nmy b
justified In calling attention to transac
tlons. seml-olllclnl In their character , which
If left unexplained , might create , the 1m
presslon that ho stands olllclnlly clmrget
with conduct which would rentier him un
worthy of a seat on this floor and an unfl
associate for his fellow senators. I hold li
my hands n paper purporting to be an
Jlllelal copy of a resolution recently ndoptoi
by the two houses of the Kentucky Kenern
issembly , and which It la due to myself am
to the sLMiute shall bo fully understood.
Ho then had the resolutions read at the
clerk's desk and continued :
While this professes to request my
resignation , It Is couched In language which
llsrcffards the ordinary amenities * of life
and is , In effect , a demand that I shal
surrender my place In order to create a
vacancy , nnd thus make room here fet
someone holding political views In harmoio
with the authors and promoters of the
resolution. I desire to protest against this
usurpation of ungranteU power , and Inas
inieli as the resolution has been made a
matter cf record on the journals of the two
iouse.9 of the state legislature , to which I
mve no access' , I propose to jjlve It a place
on the records of the senate and to make
such comments as I deem necessary and
iroper under the circumstances
The. substance of the complaint Is that I
am opposed to the free and unlimited coinage
of silver at the ratio of 1C to 1 and that I op-
mscd the election of the nominees of the
ate Chicago convention and by so doing
mtraycU the trust reposed in me by mj
'onslltiiency. 1 shall not discuss the pres-
dentlal campaign of IS'ifl. It Is not neces-
cary to do so to meet the charges that 1
bc-trayed the tryst of my constituents by
op-posing the election of the Chicago nom-
neea. My constituency Is made up of the
looplo of Kentucky and that people , voted
igalnst these nominees and twelve out of
hlrtecn of the electoral votes of Kentucky
vcre registered against them. If to be 09-
losed to the free coinage of silver and In
aver of maintaining1 the- parity of our gold
ind slh'er dollars is to be deemed a be-
rayal cf trust , tjien I may lie pardoned for
ailing attention ; tp the 'history ' of current
olltlcs In Kentucky from 1S93 , when I was
Irst elected .to . the senate , up to the time
of my second ejection.
SOME. POLITICAL , HISTOUY.
I was elcfi-d tO' 1111 an unexplred term In
"ebruary. 1S93. In August of that year con
gress met In o.xira. session to consider the
> rope = c-il.repeal of the purchasing clause of
hu act of July-14 , 1S90 , commonly called the
Sherman lo yIn October , 1S93 , I voted
ngainn a proposed amendment to the bill
providing for the free coinage of silver at
ho ratio of Ifi to ] . I voted against an
amendment providing for the re-enactment
f the island-Allison act. I voted against
he amendment iprovldlm ; for the free coln-
ge of silver upon condition that the gov-
rnment should receive in the way of
elgnlorage the difference between the niar-
cpt and coinage value of silver bullion. In
ho discussion of the bill I declared that
would vote Jor no amendment which
nnrcly dealt with a change of ratio or that
111 not provide reasonable safeguards to
nsure the maintenance of the parity of gold
nil silver do'lars. These votes and that
cclaratlon were known to all the Intelli
gent people of the state of Kentucky. In
he month following the adjournment of the
xtra session the general assembly charged
vlth the duty of Helectlng my successor
vns chosen. It convened in January , 1E94.
Ty name was the only one presented to the
emoeratlc caucus and when the election
ame to be held I received the vote of every
emoeratlc member present. My views on
ic silver question were as well known then
s. they are known today were then the
IIMVS of an overwhelming majority of the
emoeratlc , party in tliut Btate. I stand to-
ay precisely where I stood when I received
lat unanimous endorsement by the demo-
rats of Kentucky. If those who were in
coord with me four years npo are not so
oday it Is because they have changed their
pinlonB. whilst I > hnvo remained steadfast ,
criticise no cue for changing his opinions ,
nit I protest against my being denounced
B a betrayer of my trust because my views
I deny the rlg'iit of helf-sceklng political
handlings who were with me In opposition
o free silver when free coinage was unpop
ular and are against mo now when free
coinage' seems to meet democratic approval
In Kentucky , to sit In judgment on my
democracy or to call In question my fealty
to the constituency I represent. I will re
mind those who voted for the resolution
that I am not the mere n cnt of the Ken
tucky U-clsIaturo. I do not exercise my
senatorial duties subject to legislative

My constituency Is equal to the combined
constituency of all the members of the

< ir < nfld nccl that my views on nil questions
of public Interest are the views of a de
cided majjrlty of voters of my state. My
term of service Is llxed by the constitution
of the rlilted States. It cannot be abridged
by the action of Uiu Kentucky legislature
and an attempt by certain members of that
body to abridge it Is the assertion of a right
which does not exist and could not exist
without Imperiling the Independence of this
great branch of the federal legislature.
lU'Bolutlons emanating trim state legis
latures touching matters pending In t.io
federal ronfress are entitled to mont ro-

Ilcforc Tn Id MR Action.
WASHINGTON , Feb. 4. A number of top.
Ics were dlscuesed at today's cabinet meet
ing , but perhaps that of the most Interest
was the dispensation of federal patronage in
the southern states whcro the ropubllcsu
party has no representatives In congress.
It la probable that several Important ap
pointments will bo made In the south soon ,
though the president IMS .not yet absolutely
and finally decided on them ,
The autlon of Iho Oornmn government
relative to American fruit was talked over
and figures were produced to show the great
Importance of the trade put In Jeopardy by
this sudden and unprecedented action on ( ho
part of Germany. The modification of the
decree made known by the latest advices
from Ambassador White was taken as an
evidence that the matter la still subject to
diplomatic adjustment ,
The attorney general made known to the
cabinet the state of the negotiations now
going on as to the foreclosure and sale of
the Kansas 1'aclflc railroad , and It was do-
cldod that the outlook was very favorable
for > the government Interests.
Secretary Wilson stated In the course of
the discussion over Germany's action that
It was undoubtedly true that ccrlaici well
known fruit diseases could bo carried on the
fruit Itciolf , an * thus the Ir.fcctlon could be
communicated to healthful trees at a great
distance. It was explained that certain
states of the union In times past had siro-
hlblted the bringing within Its borders o-f
particular kinds of fruit from Infected rcc-
tlons lei other states. The action of Prussia
therefore might bo entirely proper nnd
clearly within Its right. Neither the presi
dent uor any of the members of the cabinet
were disturbed by the incident , or disposed
to prejudge the caao la" the absence of defi
nite Information. SeereMry Wilson under
stood , ho said , that the total cxportatlons of
fruits to Germany during the last year had
amounted to only about 1,000,000 bushels.
During the last live or six years American
fruit had grown In favor quite rapidly in
that country and the Indications had been
that within the next few years the exporta-
tlons would have aggregated several mil
lions of dollars.
AmbassaJor White's rrport will bo awaited
with Interest and should It appear that
Prussia's action was pronlpted by a spirit of
retaliation for losses sustained by reason of
the discriminating duty placed upon German
sugars , or for any other reason , there Is no
doubt tJrat this government would give the
mutter serious consideration.

WASHINGTON , Feb. 4. The house com-
mlttco on interstate and foreign commerce
gave an ex'tcndcd ' hearing today on the
Hepburn bill to create a department of com-
mcrco and industries.
Ferdinand W. Pock of Chicago , president
of the National Huslness Men's league ;
Theodore C. Search of Philadelphia , presi
dent of the 'Manufacturers' ' association of
the United States , and John W. Kla of Chicago
cage made arguments. They submitted a
memorial prepared by Mr. Ela expressing
the views of the business Interests of the
country , which Included eighty-seven na
tional , state and municipal business organl-
zationn in twenty-seven dlfCeront states , and
111 prominent business firms in 'thirty dif
ferent btates , all favoring the new depart
ment. They said the new department
would bo a great boon to labor as well as to
Mr. Search said that under existing con
ditions proper Information was not being
secured by the government as to wages ,
cost of production , particularly as to the
wage cost of produces , the best manner of
producing and furnishing materials , etc. The
Hstrlbutlcn of warehouses end depots
: hroughotit Europe was urged as a potent
'actor In extending trade.
Mr. Ela said the dominant reason for the
erection oj the now cabinet olllco was the
iccesBlty of constructing the instrumentali
ties for obtaining and classifying statistics
it hcmu and abroad necessary for the sys-
ematlc extension of United States e.ommerco
and Industries. He said several departments
of the government are greatly overcrowded

under their respective spheres.
It was said the Information now obtained

mwever , Is that the measure will bo taken
rom the speaker's table as soon as the

Idorablo majority after twa or three days'

Herman of the general land office today de-
clsed the case of ArchbUbcii John Ireland ,
Involving the title to about 30,000 acres of
land In the St. Cloud and Marshal land dls-
trlctfl , Minnesota. With a view to coloniza
tion and other jiurposes the archbishop en
tered Into two contracts with the fit. Paul ,
MlnncaiiQllH & Manitoba Railway company ,
within whose lend grant limits the land lay ,
for Us disposition. TMeso contracts were
dated July 17 , 1880 , and March 30 , 1803. Bub-
scquently it was determined that the land
was not properly couveyable to the
railroad and the question arosa
whether the archlblshct ) , under the
agroemmts with the company , could be
come the purchaser of the lands on
which many personn bad nettlt.il. The com-
mUalonrr decides that under thu agreement
of 1SSO , In which about 5,000 acres are in
volves ] , the archbUhop cannot bccomo the
purchaser , as ho was simply the a ent of
tbo company in disposing of the lands , fcr
which he receive * ! a commUsiou , The fiet-
tl ors now on those lands can acquire pat
ent under the land laws at the price of
fl.2S per acre , or under certain conditions
may take out homestead rishts.
Under the agreement of 1633 tbo commis
sioner decides the Archbishop hns the rlsht
to purchase the lands. These ho will have
to pay for t the rttc of $2.50 per acre. Many
persons have settled also In these lands
tinder arrangements with the archbishop.
In the first case , therefore , 4ho decision 1
against the archbishop and In the second
for him , although In both cases the settler
will bo protected. The archbishop has the
right of appeal from this decision to the
secretary of the Interior.
