"WASHINGTON, Nov. 17.-When the houes
convened today Mr. Fowler (N. J.) and Mr.
Rrundlge (Ark.) were sworn in, after which
the house went Into committee of the whole
and resumed consideration of the Cuban
bill. Mr. Knapp rep.. (N. T.), waa the first
Mr. i IS.' Btevens, (Mln.), who followeJ,
poke for thirty minutes in opposition to the
bill. He snld that while firm protectionist,
he believed the time near at hand when
pome reductions 1n the present tariff sched
ules must be made.
. "I believe the measure is a cruel blow to
one of the most promising agricultural In
dustrie of this country," said Mr. Stevens,
adding thaV, there would be a greater re
duction in revenues than estimated by ad
vocates of the bill. '
Mr. Clark dem., (Mo.), speaking of the
rule cuttlngoff an amendment to the bill,
raid the probability la that the democrats
will control the next house and elect the
next president, adding: "The more of these
lron-clal rules you ram down our throats
the more you will have rammed down
yours." , ..
1 Turning his attention to the Cuban bill,
Mr. Clark declared with emphasis that the
republicans could not pass the bill without
the democratic vote la the house, adding
"and you know it"
Clark at His Old Tricks.
Mr. Clark then got back to politics and
quoted what he termed republican battle
cries. 'Your Uncle Mark Invented 'Let
well enough alone.' He afterward con
verted this into 'stand pat,' and then the
able chairman of the ways and means com
mittee, -Mr. Pnyne, added a little 'keep on
letting well enough alone,' and then when
your Uncle Mark waa being punched over
the ropea out In Ohio by Colonel Theodore
Roosevelt and Senator Foraker he added
for God's sake let us keep on letting well
enough alone.' "
Mr. McClellan who will toon retire, from
congress to assume the duties of mayor of
Greater New York, followed. He said there
was an argument In favor of tho enactment
of the bill which rose above all others and
involved the duty and honor of the United
States. "As we have made it Impossible
for Cuba,' said Mr. McClellan, "to seek
alliances elsewhere. It Is a duty which we
cannot shirk to permit her to enter Into
tha closest political and commercial rela
tions with us."
After quoting figures. Mr. McClellan said:
'"In other words, under President Estrada
Pal ma. the cost of government is over
97,000,000 less per annum than it was under
Mr. McClellan received the applause of
Ms colleagues when he had concluded.
, Mr. Crum packer rep. (Ind.. said reci
procity was not In harmony with the tariff
policy of this country as exemplified In
the last , two republican tariff bills. He
eald If we are to have the permanent re
ciprocity policy - we should put a tax on
noncompetitive articles that we might have
something upon which to negotiate.
At 4 p. m. the house adjourned.

Staples Corns In.
The vegetables and fruits are sure enough
putting up st the Sign of the Christmas
Tree. The Ice vapor haa blown all the bar
rels and boxes under cover. The Irish po
tatoes are so covered with goose-flesh that
their eyes stick out like thoso of a crab,
and the rutabagas are purple with chapped
hands and chilblains. But this Is where
the business of the imported produce Im
proves, foi the present frigidity will do
away with the competition from Florence
The good old winter business largely de
pends on the apple, the cabbage, the onion,
the sweet nnd Irish potatoes, the bean, the
rutabagas and the various nuts. These
staples have been rushed In during the last
few weeks In preparation for tho cold wave.
Some cars were caught In the yards Mon
day and were housed Monday night In the
roundhouses and freight depots. Ftom now

stove and a janitor to keep It going.
A car of Malaga grapes came here Mon
day to be in at the death of the California
grapes, who will all have hit the ghostly
trail In a week or two. The Spaniards are
better this year than last and also cheaper.
The Sweet potatoes from Iowa are starting
on their winter business at a jobbing price
of 90 cents and 11. and the Virginia sweets
(First Families of Virginia) hhow their
blood in a demand for I a barrel. The
beans are tho boys who enjoy cold weather,
however. The navy beans like a half gale,
like this of today, for It makes the people
hungry. The navys are chesp this year,

the city hall of the days of the Spanish
domination, which building yet stands

the formalities of turning over Louisiana
to the American commissioners. Both New
Orleans and the state of Louisiana have
u greed to ultimately turn this celebrated
building over to the use of the society as
a permunent homo fur the society's magnifi
cent historical collection of books, paint
ings, manuscripts and records, but as It
is yet In use by the state supreme court, the
dedication of the building for this pur
pose must be delayed until the new court
buildings arc completed. At the time of
the celebration, however, the cabildo will
be given over lo tle use of the society, and
therein the principal exercises will be held.
The French and Spanish ambassadors will
be present; a uuin-or-war from each of
these nations In expected at New Orleans
at this time and a portion of the Atlantic
squadron will aid in giving formality to
. Another Colonial Ball.

SAYS CZAR WILL CLOSE DOOR
Returned Missionary Declares Hnssla
Will Turn Key and Stay
."Russia will Inevitably close the door, of
Manchuria. Such has always been Its
policy. Russia Is an aggressive country
and knows but one thing, and that is to
carry out Its policy; and the Russians
are not so very particular how they do it,
either, so long as they gain their point.''
Dr. G. A. Stewart, who left Omaha yes
terday, after attending the missionary
committee's meetings, voiced this opinion
in the Murray hotel with the force of con
viction. Dr. Stewart has been a missionary
of the church In Nanking and was In Man
churia last June.
"The educated Chinese feA that Man

more than once,
of the "ad" on your list,
churia Is irretrievably lost," he continued.
"Occasionally you meet one who will ex
press an opinion, and they fear that Russia
will not be satisfied and will not stop short
of tho Tcllow river. (This Mows Into tho
southern part of the Gulf of Pe-Chl-LI and
is far to the south of Peking.) This !
the general opinion of the foreigners living
in China, and they know that Rus:lu Is In
Manchuria to stay. China feels halples.i
since the Boxer war. Up to that tlnni
China had thought that it could keep the
foreigners out 6f Peking, but when it vuw
how easily a , handful of while, soldiers
captured the place, it came to the opinion
that It was no use to try to hold back
the foreigners, and that they Would take
what they wanted. ,
"I think that you cannot' blame Russia
much for seeking open ports In Manchurln.
It Is blocked In the Baltlo and tho Black
sea and Vladivostok is a frosen port. Port
Arthur Is now Its military harbor a fine
natural harbor and . Ice free and Dnlny
Is the commercial terminus of the railway.
"Manchuria Is uh Immensely rich coun
try. Tho northern and western parts are
like the Dukotas ot ' parts of this stnte.
From Harbin, where the railway branches
south, 2U0 miles of line extends to the west
without' a curve, the country is so level.
It Is' only used for grazing now, hut will
be a splendid wheat country, much liku
North Dakota. The southern part of Man
c bulla is used In growing Wheat, millet and
beans, and produces well. The principal
exports are millet and bean oil." '
PRISONERS GIVEN A SCARE
Huddled Ip In Corner of Hooin When
feteam Pip fjets on
Fifteen Inmates of the Vrlsoners recep
tion room which Is Just "offside" the court
room of Magistrate Berka, were sure they
were going to get the water cure yester
day. Sergeant Whalen, thinking perhaps It
was cold in the reception room, went In
and turned on the steam. The radiator; an
old one, resented being tampered with and
Immediately a stream of water poured out
onto the floor. This was followed by steam,
which filled the room and mingled -with the
screams of the women and tho shouts of
the men as they huddled together in the
east end of the room agulnst the door. It
was all over In a minute, but it was stren
uous while It lasted, an(J a more frightened
lot of prisoners hus not boert seen,' In police
court for many a day. '
