in the assessment of this tax, so-called, or

Secretary Wilson and Chief Forester Pln

a tax as on the the Nlobraia forest re
serve, ,the seasons, however, bring shorter
In California and Oklahoma than on the
Niobrara reserve by several months, (en

Is lower, but for good reasons. It is under
stood cattle from off the Pike's Teak re
serve come off poorer than from the Nio
brara, the grass being less nutritious than
thai on the Nebraska reserve. For railroad
and Indian lands the charges are SI. 50 per
head, this charge bring three times higher
than paid on the Nebraska reserve. Be
sides, with the tax levied, the fences which
the cattlemen now maintain on the forest
reserves of Nebraska are legalized, the
legality coming through rental paid. No
other atate in the union, so far as the
furext reserves go, ia permitted to keep
up fences erected by the cattlemen. Tills

Under debute In the Iioufc, called on the
chief executive today with a view of as
certaining If the report' was true. He
learned differently. The president seemed
to take delight in telling Mr. I'nllurd how
Interested he was In the measure and be
lieved it' would be a tv.ove In the right
direction to pass the bill. The presid.-nt. it
Is understood, stated to Mr. Pollard that
he did not bcll v the Philippine produc

to Action of European
Power a.
BERLIN', Jan. S The Foreign office's
pamphlet on Morocco, consisting of forty
two pages, with extracts from twenty
seven documents, appeared todny and fur
nished good reading for those who have
followed this long controversy. The puhlt
cation, however, contains Put few Interest
ing features. It begins with a symposium
of the newspaper cuttings expressing the
aspiration of the French to attain exclusive
jurisdiction In Morocco and representing
that the French minister at Fei had as
sumed the mandate of Europe to urge the
execution of reforms In Morocco. .
The sultan of Morocco on December 21
received In audience Itcrr Vassel, the Ger
man consul at Fes and talked over the
general situation. "I am willing,"' said the
Sultan, "to treat three or four powers
equally with Germany and Great Britain
on account of their trade, and France and
Spain because they are neighbors."
The sultan Inquired whether the French
minister could claim a general mandate or
not and the consul replied that Germany
bad not granted such a mandate.
The sultan said he was pleased to re
ceive this Information. Herr Vassel. In a
dispatch dated April 21, on the sultan's
state, of mind after the speech of M. Del

France, In the French senate March i?1.
said Mulal Abd-El-Axls was excited by M.
Delcasse's declaration that the Moroccan
government, has asked France's advice and
would follow It.
During the audience the sultan cried:
"But these are ahsolute untruths."
Herr Vessel continued.
"I told him that the French deny that M.
Strene Tallflndler (the French minister at
Fez claimed a European mandate."
The sultan said:
" 'The French expressed themselves to
me In that senese.'
"On my asking , who had so , expressed
himself the sultan answered:
" 'M. Strene Talllandier himself. I asked
liim which nations these were. I knew that
Germany and Italy had not consented to a
mandate. M. Blrene said nothing, and I
drew my conclusions, which were confirmed j
by the course of future events.'

WASHINGTON. Jan. i.-Senator Paeon
Introduced today a resolution requesting
of the president a detailed account of the
negotiation resulting In the appointment
of delegates from Lh Vnlted States to the
conference soon to he held at Algeclras,
Spain, for the purpose of considering cer
tain questions relative to the commercial
and political affairs of Morocco and in
which the governments of the leading pow
ers of Europe, Including Germany, France,
Great Britain, Italy, Austria and Spain, are
expected to participate. The senator ex
pects, to speak bfi'Jth'e resolution tomorrow.
The preamble to la resolution says:
"The questions,, .Issue and the relations
of European anvernnvnta thereto are re-'
puted to be- of stich gravity and the an
tagonistic' demand of European govern

peace of Europe, i as is evidenced by the
publicly announced preparations for war,

the gathering of war materials hy several

HOME, Jan. 8.A former cabinet minis
ter, who is a statesman of note and likely
to return to power, has written on Im
portant article In the Corrlore Delia Sepa,
on the International situation In connection
with the Moroccan conference. He says he
thinks that the real antagonism is between
Germany and Great Britain. War between
these two countries, he points out, would
have dreadful effects, as it necessarily
would involve other powers, leading to a
retrogression of centuries. Whichever side
la victorious, the writer assort, Europe
would have to cede the supremacy in civ
ilization to America and Japan, who would
i become the domlnators of weak and dis

we learned them at our fathers' knee. This
spirit was given evidence of public approval
In tho campaign of 1900. A repudiation of

the commercial spirit waa reached In the

WASHINGTON. Jan. d.-Tlic senate gave
attention today to the Panama canal, the
situation In Santo' Domingo and the mer
chant marine shipping bill.
The canal question came up In connec
tion with a message from the president In
which among other things he Invited the
closest scrutiny into all that had been done
by the government In the Isthmus of
Panama. Mr. Gorman made that utterance
the text for a speech In which he criticised
the salaries paid for work in connection
with the canal and urged congressional in
ciulry. He said that the president whs not
so much to blame as congress for his as
sumption of control on tho Isthmus and
that the chief mistake had been made when
congress released its hold on canal nffalrs.
Mr. Hale agreed with Mr. Gorman in urg
ing the assertion of the rights of congress
In connection with the canal and said that
while congress had delegated the matter to
the president the latter practically, bad re
ferred the whole matter back to congress.
The Dominican discussion arose on Mr.
Tillman's resolution making Inquiry of the

In the Island republic. The resolution was
made the basis for a speech by Mr. Rny-
ner, which was his Initial effort In the sen
ate. He made an argument for noninter
ference by the t'nltced States In the affairs
of other countries in the western hemis
phere except in cases Involving efforts to
appropriate territory and closed with a
plea for encouragement to the Russian Jews
In their struggle for their rights In Russia.

wai-tnly congratulated by many senators
of both parties, his colleague, Mr. Gorman,
being the first to offer his hand.

merchant marine shipping bill, presenting
an extensive array of figures In support of

Mr. ftulllTan Explains Attitude
Democrats Toward Revision.
WASHINGTON, Jan. .-Wlth over four
hours devoted to the District of Columbia,
there was left but a half hour to be de
voted by the house toduy to tariff discus
sion. This was utilized by Mr. Sullivan of
Massachusetts, who spoke strongly for
tariff revision from the democratic stand
point. ,. , .
At 4:30 O'clock the Philippine bill was
taken up that Mr, Sullivan (Mass.) might
deliver a speech. He said the house had
been somewhat astonished Saturday to hear
a tariff revision speech from a republican
member from Massachusetts (Mr. Law
rence). Mr. Sullivan said that among the
people of his state there was, regardless
of party, a universal demand for tariff re
vision. He contended that Mr. Payne, In
charge of the pending bill, had succeeded
absolutely in showing that there waa no
necessity for protecting American labor.
Mr. Sullivan, in reply to questions, said
that he believed that It would be entirely
proper for any party in power to take Into
consideration American labor, If It could
be shown, and clearly shown, that there
was need for protection. Issue was taken
by Mr. Sullivan to a recent statement
of Mr. Orosvenor (O.) that notwithstanding
the threatened tariff war by Germany that
nation would be compelled to buy food
stuffs of us. He offered Mr. Grosvenor un
limited time to explain the ground for this
assertion, but this waa declined. Mr. Sul
livan aaaerted that Argentina and Canada
would take much of this German trade and
that the t'nlted States could not afford to
neglect Its commerce In this direction. He
concluded at 11 o'clock and the bouse ad
