WASHINGTON. Juoa 11. The house to
day dispatched the Corliss cable bill by
the tarn method It adopted yesterdey In
the cat of tha forest reserve bill. It
truck out the enacting- clause by a vote of
11 to 77, thui giving do opportunity to
teat the strength of the Dalzell substitute
which authorized the president to contract
with a private company for the laying of a
The speakers today were: Messrs.
Shackelford of Missouri, Mann of Illinois,
Morrell of Pennsylvania and Tompkins of
Ohio for the bill, and Measrs. Richardson of
Alabama, Newlands of Nevada, Loud of
California and Cannon of Illinois against it.
Mr. Corliss supplemented his speech of
yesterday In favor of the bill with a few
additional remarks. In the course of which
he declared that he bad learned within
twenty-four hours that not a foot of the
proposed commercial Pacific cable had yet
been laid. Mr. Richardson of Alabama then
took the floor In opposition. He called at
tention to the speech of Mr. Cannon yes
terday. In which the latter showed that
the appropriations for the next fiscal year
already exceeded the estimated revenue by
J M, 00, 000 and urged this as the first rea
son why the government should not enter
upon the exhaustive work of building a
cable to the Philippines.
He referred at some length to the pos
sibilities In the. development of wireless
telegraphy and argued that it would be
unwise on the threshold of the develop
ment of the new system for the govern
ment to expend 115,000,000 or 120,000,000 for
a submarine cable, which might be value
less In a few years. It was better, he In
sisted, to allow a private company to take
whatever risk wss lavolved.
Mr. Richardson then read the contract
under the post roada tot of 18, which
the Commercial Cable company agreed to
make with the secretary of the treasury
covering the sale of cable In case of neces
sity to the government, the priority of gov
ernment messages, the rates to be charged
. (not' to exceed 60 ' cents per word to
Hawaii and 11 per word to the Philippines
and China) with half rates for government
business, the Vontrol of the cable by the
government in time of war. He argued that
these terms were in every way very ad
vantageous to the government.
Federal Cable I'nlaatlflable.
Mr. Corliss asked If the attorney general
bad not refused to consider the contract
Which the Commercial Cable company had
offered to make.
. Mr. Richardson replied that the attorney
general and other government officials had
declined to interfere in the matter and that
the company was proceeding to lay the
cable under the post roads act. In ex
planation of the reason for the' cable being
built la England he said that the English
company was building -a cable which it
guaranteed for two yeajra. No other com
pany would guarantee a cable for thirty
days, he aald.
Mr. Richardson declared that aa an eco
nomic business proposition the government
cable waa unjustifiable and be quoted from
the commerce committee's report against a
former bill of this kind to the effect that
It would cost the government $15,000,000
and would chiefly benefit 800 foreigners
and 190 American olttzens. He read a let
ter from John W. Mackey of the Commer
cial company guaranteeing that the com
pany would build an all-Amerlcaa cable
and not touch upon foreign soil. The ob
Jectlon to the project of the Commercial
cable because the cable waa not built by
American labor, he said, would not atand
investigation. He produced figures to show
that only IS per cent of the cost of a cable
was expended for wages..
Mr. Loud of California opposed the bill
en the ground that government operation
of telegraph systems In Europe was not a
uocess. Since 1872 England had lost about
rj- 135.000,000 in the operation of Its tele
"jrraph system. If a private company had
hat. such a monopoly as England had It
wou)dhve made large suma of money. He
concluded' by expressing ths hope that the
house would U1 all the bills and leave
the Pacific ocean- open to any company
which cared to undertake the laying of a
cable. ' (Applause.)
Mr. Adamaon of Georgia moved to atrlke
out the enacting clause of the bill. To
prove that the Commercial Cable company
waa proceeding with the work of construct-
Ing the cable it proposed to lay, he read
a cablegram from London, dated today and
signed by O. E. Ward, vice president, certi
fying that 1,061 nautical miles of the cable
to be laid between Ban Francisco and
Honolulu had been completed and that the
work waa proceeding at the rate of twenty
five miles a day. The cablegram aald that
a steamer would leave with the cable for
Ean Francisco before August 1.
Mr. Tompkins of Ohio, a member of the
commerce committee, made an earnest
speech la favor of the bill. The govern
ment, he argued, abeuld have undisputed
and uninterrupted communication with Ita
Insular possessions; He said a gentleman
had appearsd before the committee and had
testified that his company was prepared to
build a cable as good aa any that could bs
built In the world.' If the cable could be
built here, he Insisted that It ahould be
built here. '(Applause.) .. . ,..
Mr.. Cannon of Illinois, chairman of the
appropriations committee, - then threw the
weight of .his influence against the bill.
He had alwsya favored the cable, but al
ways had believed that a private company
would come along and lay one without ex
pense to the United Etates. Here was such
a company offering to build a cabls to the
Philippines by way of Honolulu. Mr. Can
non said his principal objection to the
Daliell substitute waa that It delayed the

HARRISBURO. Pa.. June 11. Judge Sam
uel W. Pennypacker of Philadelphia waa
nominated for governor over Attorney Gen
era) John P. Elkln of Indiana by today's
republican state convention, by a vote of
206 to 152.
Ex-State Senator William M. Brown of
New Castle and Major Isaac B. Brown of
Erie were nominated by acclamation for
lieutenant governor and secretary of In
ternal affairs respectively. Senator Quay
waa chosen chairman of the republican
state committee by a suspension of the
rulea requiring the state chairman to be
chosen by the nominees and the presiding
offlcere of the convention, and he will con

The platform Indorses the administration
of President Roosevelt, reaffirms loyalty
to the principles of proteclve tariff; de
clares for pure and honest ballot reform;
condemns trust, approves the action of the
president and attorney general In proceed
ing against the Beef trust, and makes no
mention of the state administration.
Personal Victory for Quay.
Peanypacker's nomination is a personal
victory for Senator Quay. Elkln waa
formerly one of Quay'e chief lieutenants,
and when he became a candidate It waa
thought he was the senator's choice. The
delegates friendly to Elkln were elected
in several counties. Quay advised against
the attorney general's candidacy In the in
tereat of party harmony. Elkln declined
to withdraw. Quay then made a publlo
declaration against his candidacy, and when
Pennypacker waa suggested for the nom
ination the senator tacitly Indorsed him.
The attorney general waa backed by Gov
ernor Stone and other members of the
state administration. Quay assumed direc
tion of Pennypacker'a campaign and from
the outaet predicted Elkln would not be
nominated. The senator came here Sunday
with Senator Penrose and othera and opened
headquarters. ' Elkln and his men were
on the ground early, and until the strength
of the rival candidates was revealed at last
night's caucuses it was conceded that the
contest waa very close.

an Industrial army of high, wage earners
of every class or calling, receiving the
highest pecuniary reward their services
ever commanded. He found us Insular
and haa left us a world power, respected,
not more for the valor of our arms, not
more for the genius of our civilisation,
than for the moderation and mercy mani
fested to the conquered. He waged a war
with Spain and In less than three years
from the outbreak of hostilities had given
Spain again to America as Its cordial
friend. He found us. nearly forty years
after the civil war, divided, and left us

COST OF FOOD.
Grape-Nats va. White Bread, etc,
A family figured carefully on the cost of
food, taking Into consideration the strength
and health that Grape-Nuts furnished. The
report Is interesting:
"We first took up Grape-Nuta because
It agreed with me ao well. I was suffering
from dyspepsia that medicine did not re
lieve. I frequently laughed at the idea
when some of my friends told of the uss
of Grape-Nuts. However, one day Wife
bought a package and we found it good and
It agreed with me.
We were accustomed to vslng white bread
and oata, wheat or barley mushes boiled
from two to four bours. Ws considered
Grape-Nuta too expensive, but I noticed
that when I had a breakfast of Grape-Nuta
I felt fine, and other days when white bread
and other cereala were used I felt weak
One day about alx montha ago I ssld to
Wife, 'I am satisfied that Orape-Nuts la
the thing that makes me feel better la
betweea the blue spalls.' Then we aat
down and figured awhile on the cost of
living and cams to ths conclusion that we
could live better and happier on fifteen
cents worth of Grape-Nuta than on twenty
five cents worth of white bread or 'cooked-
at-home' cereals. You see four teaspoon-
fuls of Grape-Nuts furnish more strength
to work on thsn large quantities of other
food, ao we atarted oa Grape-Nuta In ear
nest; using It every morning, and a wonder
ful change haa come over me.
I am gaining la weight every day. Never
have any of the old bloated feelings. Feel
strong and welt and eaa endure more hard
work than I could oa tbe old diet, and this
result is all without any doctor or drugs at
all, but directly from using Grape-Nuta."

SHERIFF ASSERTS AUTHORITY
Tells Woman'a Christian Temperance
Union About Religions Serv
ices In Jail.
The trouble that has been brewing for
some time regarding tbe gospel work of
the Women's Christian Temperance union
at th county Jail came td a focus yester
day afternoon at a meeting of that organ
ization; when a; letter was received from
Sheriff Power addressed to the members ot
the union, advising them of the extent ot
their authority over the gospel services at
the Jail. He wished it understood that it
rested with the sheriff alone to dictate who
should conduct the services. The letter
was accompanied by a petition to the union
algned by the prisoners of the west end,
asking that Miss Magee be returned to the
work In that part of tbe Jail.
For some time the union has had charge
ot the Sunday noon services at the Jail,
which have been conducted by Its superin
tendent, Mrs. E. H. Bhinrock, and the city
missionary, Miss Nellie Magee, the former
working in the east wing and the latter In
the west. All went well until a few weeks
ago, when the union took occasion to se
verely criticise Miss Magee for some of her
methods, as reported and complained of
by Mrs. Bhinrock.
The matter waa brought up at a meeting
of the union when Miss Magee waa not
present and created a small tempest, but
when the complaint came to be Investigated
the offenses charged proved to be merely
differences of opinion between Mrs. Shin
rock and Miss Magee. The union, few
members' of wblch ever visit the Jail, was
unwilling to depart from ita time-honored
rule that the authority of a auperintendent
must be maintained, and it waa decided
that if Miss Magee continued in the work
ahe could not come directly under the
union, but must work under tbe authority
of the superintendent. The developments
of another week made thla impossible and
Mlsa Magee withdrew. 8lnce then there
baa been no regular provision for the Sun
day services and the petition of the pris
oners and the sheriff's letter were tho
Tbe letter came aa a surprise at yester
day's meeting and the women again en
deavored to persuade Miss Magee to aee
ber duty In working under Mrs. Ehlnrock'a
authority. Thla Mlsa Magee quietly but
firmly refused to do. In view of the limi
tation of its authority to dictate regarding
the Sunday aervices, aa stated by Sheriff
Power, the union decided that a committee
sboujd call on the sheriff and lay tbe mat
ter before hlra, the union agreeing to with
draw from the west wing if he chooses to
place Miss Magee in charge there. It la
to be understood, however, that in with
drawing Ita authority, tbe union alao with
draws its financial support from the work
In that part of the Jail.
