WASHINGTON.' Jan. -S. Except for pos
Klble developments In the Franco-Venezuelan
crisis and possible, though unexpected,
complications In the Moroccan conference,
the week; begin with little promise of news
events of an unusual character. The crlt-
leal point In tho. Franco-Venezuelan qoea-
lion, which seamed Imminent, l.as passed
for the moment, as Fiance has said I.
would await. "a propltloua time." for tak -
Ina- such action against Veneiuela as it '
has decided upon. It Is Intlmoated that Its
desire h to awtlt.ttw conclusion of the Al
gcelras conference before Involving Itself
with Venezuela. '
The Moroccan conference promises no
definite action os. the graver problems It. is
to confront are yet some ways off. Though
the. alignment of. the delegates Is more
marked than a week ago there Is still a
feeling of uncertainty as to the outcome.
.It Is generally, believed that the longer the
conference lasts the better the chance for
Its successful termination. The private dis
cussions which the French and German
delegates have had, created an optimistic
feeling among the other .conferees.
Senate to Talk on Chinese.
The senate will begin the week with the
consideration of the Chinese boycott. The
question will come up In connection with
a resolution offered last week by Senator
Tillman,' directing the committee on Immi
gration to Investigate the causo. of Chinese
opposition to American ' manufactures.
Vt nen the resolution was presented Mr. Till
man asked for immediato consideration, but
Mr. Aldrlch objected. It Is said he and
other republicans dislike the preamble to
the resolutions, which assumes aa a fact the
reported, leadership of Former Minister Wu
Ting Fang in the boycott movement. Mr.
Tillman is disposed to Insist upon tha re
tention, of .this phraseology. If he does not
change bis mind the absolution doubtless
will Iea4 to a considerable airing of the
Senator jOalllnger will . make .an effort
Monday to secure further consideration of
the shipping bill and it la hie purpose to
press Utot .meaaure. ivnnn, toe attention -ot
the senate as friilstently as a tho circum
stances will permit. In this policy he will
be supported, at least tor the present, by
many republican' senators. Ir la suspected
by some of the friends of the shipping bill
that there Is a disposition to keep the
measure in Its place for the purpose of
holding off the statehood bill, but they say
that while .they are not prepared to let go
of the shipping bill for the present, they
can displace It whenever so disposed with
the statehood bill. The antagonists of state
hood do not admit this and it looks as it the
light over the. admission of new states
.night be Initiated In thla way. It is not
probable, however,' that this stage of tho
contest will be reached for some time.
BUI to Keep Ita Place.
Mr. Galflngcr will offer further amend
uaius to his bill on Monday and either
...cit i.r later in tho week he and Senators
uu-e and Penrose will make Speeches In
o-p,.ort of the bill. There will then be an
.c.it to get the opponents of the bfll to
vilu'tH' agree to a vote or give their reasons
.w opposition. There will be no attempt to
.prolong sessions, but the bill will be held In
..4 place as steadily as possible In the hope
vt getting action before It becomes neces
sary to crowd the measure out In the Inter
est of other bills.
The statehood bill will be reported by
senator Beverjdge from the committee on
.eii-ltorie. on Monday. The committee has
jiven no Instruction to htm as to bringing
i.ie bill up In the senate, but be will press
ma rspiuijr ue cm wunoui prejuuice 10
other party measures. The friends of the
bill expect determined opposition and a long
contest Is among the strong probabilities.
The principal point of controversy is the
uniting, ot Now Mexico and Arizona and a
special effort will be made to secure tho
adoption of Senator Foraker'e amendment,
giving the people of Arizona an opportunity
ot voting separately on the proposition.
Senator Heyburn has given notice of a
motion made for unanimous consent for
time for voting on the pure food bill, but
he will not succeed. Mr. Heyburn has
also given notice of a speech tomorrow on
the question of forest reservations.
The Indications are that there will be
very little If any more discussion of the
Moroccan question, but there will be ad
ditional speeches on the status of affairs in
Santo Domingo. The Isle of Pines treaty
. will be reported early In the week. Vr.
. Fo raker will have charge of It and will
try to secure an early vote on It.
There will be an effort to amend the
treaty so as to protect the rights of Ameri
cans on the Island.

and Indications are that a vote will hardly

VIENNA. Jan. .'8. (Special Cablegram
to The Bee.) The Bohemian twin" are
twine no longer. Prof. Kukula of Prague
university has successfully separated these
twins which have been exhibited all over
tho world. Their names were Rosa and
Jnsefa Rlazek. They are the daughters'
of a Bohemian farmer, and were born in
187?,. Though united physically they have
.it displayed distinct individualities.

with the result that while her temperature

However their theor had already been

OLD MURDER CASE AT METZ
Proprietor of Cafe Arrested on ( ha rare
of Letting Former Prisoner
HAMBURG, Jan. 28. (Specinl Cablegram
to The Bee.) tn consequence of an anony
mous letter received by the police of Meti
the proprietor of a cafe at Baarberg has
been arrested In connection with a curious
Incident which caused great excitement In
that town some eight years ago and which
remains a mystery to this day.
A constable had taken a man Into cus
tody one. night, and, as It was too late to
take him to the police station, he locked
lilin up in a town shelter that had long
been disused. When the constable re
turned In the morning he found not only
the prisoner but a corpse in an advanced
plage of decomposition. On Inquiry It
was found to be the body of a wandering
musician who had suddenly disappeared
some months before. But how he got
Into the shelter and how he died re
mained a mystery. The cafe proprietor,
mho has now been arrested, was a former
member of tho police force. The anony
mous letter, which is supposed to have
been written by the prisoner. Intimates
that the constable arrested the musician
and after locking him up either forgot
about the matter or brutally allowed him
NEW NAVAL RULES IN NORWAY
Ke ntflttratlns to Be Given 1'nlesa
Ships Pnrehased Abroad Are
CHRISTIANA, Jan. 28.-(8pecial Cable
gram to The Bee.) Subject to an arrange
ment with the Norske Veritas (a sort of a
Norwegian Lloyd's Register) a law will
come Into force March SI, by which strin
gent rules will be applied to Norwegian
shipping, no inconsiderable proportion of
which at present sails about tha world un
insured because It Is uninsurable.
Apart from the stringent regulations with
respect to overloading and the proper pro
vision for life on board ship, the-new mer
chant shipping act stipulates that "when a
foreign ship la bought by a Norwegian sub
ject no certificate of nationality shall be Is
sued for the ship if built of wood or of
wood and Iron (composite) and more than
to years, or of iron (steel) and more than 30
years old, unless classed Al if of wood and
1A1 if of iron, in the Norske Veritas or to
corresponding classes of other surveying In
stitutions recognized by the king."
It Is said here that this action will be cor
dially welcomed by British shipowners, who
have for so long contended that the same
regulations are enforced on British ships
when in British ports.
HOPE FOR BETTER FEELING
Believes that Vatican
Qnlrlnal May Yet Be Good
ROME. Jan. 28. (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) The question, so often discussed.
ot possibilities of a complete reconciliation
between the Vatican and the Quirinal, stim
ulated by the report that the king of Spain
Is anxious to pay a visit to the king ot
Italy, and desires the consent of the holy
father before making the trip, has recently
received even added Interest.
The simultaneous presence at a recent so
ciety function of court dignitaries, the pre
mier, cabinet ministers and three cardinals.
Including Cardinal Rampolla himself, re
vives and strengthens other rumors aa well.
It Is claimed that negotiations are proceed
ing to Induce the pope to accept the appro
priation granted him by the law of guaran
tees of 1871, which up to the present the
sovereign pontiff has always refused. It Is
suggested that the appropriation should be
accepted under some form which would not
hurt or prejudice any principles, aa, for In
stance, a state contribution to the bishop
of Rome, as Is done with other Italian bish
ops. The mutter has not, however, as yet
taken concrete form.

EXPLAINS WORK FOR FARMER
Dr. G alio wj Telle Interesting Story to
DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE LABORS
Experiments Made to Show What to"
brow, and How aad Where
Investigation Into Seed
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 28. Special.) The
report of the secretary of agriculture, on
the . Year Book of the Department of
Agriculture, Is a publication of which nearly
a million copies arc distributed every year.
It 16 read in every farming community In
the country, but few residents of the cities
ever see a copy of it. And jet Its pages
are replete with Information of the greatest
Interest to every American citizen. But
while the published reports of the work
accomplished are of prime Importance, the
Individual efforts of the men In charge of
the work are brought out more clearly
In the hearings riet'ore the committee on
agriculture ot the house than In any
Chairman Wadsworth of this committee
Is one of the most painstaking members
of the house. He insists that the heads of
the various bureaus of the department shall
explain in detail Just what they propose
to accomplish with the funds for which
they ask, and in consequence the hearings
en the agricultural appropriation bill will
last for several weeks and )L-aeh member of
the committee is loaded with Information
which enables him, when occasion arises, to
explain each Item of the appropriation.
Dr. Galloway's Narrative.
During the past week Dr. B. T. Gallo
way, cnief of the bureau of plant industry,
has appeared each inoining to explain the
work of the men employed In each branch
of his great bureau, and he has proved
himself to be not only a most Intelligent
witness but a most entertaining narrator
of the work of the department and Ita ac
complishments. Recently the newspapers
and" magazines of the country have printed
much about the experiments in plant breed
ing which "Wizard" Durban has con
ducted in California, and while that gentle
man has achieved remarkable results in
the way of producing new species of fruits
and flowers, the department of agriculture
has made .giant strides in demonstrating
that hundreds of plants, trees, fruits and
herbs nut lndigncuu to the Moil of tins
country can be properly produced here.
Atclercncc was inaue to mo important
work , tne bureau of plant . industry ' lias
been conduruns in the matter 01 Dreed
ing many new kinds ' 01 fruits. Special
attention was called to the new hardy
oranges that have been developed and are
now being dlsfcemlnated. It - was stated
tlat these oranges will be hardy as far
north as South Carolina and will trow
as far west as middle Texas: The depart
ment has not yet been entirely successful
in securing a sweet orarufe, but the types
already obtained are valuable for the man
ufacture of marmalades, the making of
pies and oCher purposes.
Many advance have been made, further
more. In . tha, matter-- of Imp'rovlBg cpttqns
by breeding and selection.'. -New tyr have
been bred by crossing' the long staple sea
Island cotton with upland forms, resulting
In types which not only add to the lenytn
of the staple, but Increase the value 10 or
IS per cent and as high as 20 per cent.
Handling and Marketing- Frails.
In the work on handling and marketing
ot frulta special stress was laid on Im
portant Investigations which have recently
been carried on, showing how necessary
It Is to give strict attention to the ques
tion of handling fruits In the orchard be
fore they are shipped. The bureau of plant
Industry has demonstrated the fact that
a great deal of the loss of fruits In transit
can be prevented by proper handling of
the oranges, apples and other fruits after
they ore taken from the trees and while
In shipment. Many experiments have been
made to show the. Importance and value
of proper methods of caring for tho fruit
before it is shipped. Attention was specif
ically called to the important work of the
department in the ' matter of storage of
fruits, especially apples. It was pointed
out that apples in storage behave differ
ently when taken from different kinds of
soli, gathered at different times of the
season and taken from different parts of
the tree. All these questions have an im
portant bearing on the keeping .qualities
of the apple after the fruit -ia put Into
the storage house. - The department is
making an effort to extend American fruit
markets into foreign countries and to this
end has made trial shipments of apples,
pears, peaches and other fruits.
Adnlteratlon In Grnsa Seeds.
A great deal of interest was aroused in
the committee by . the discussion .of the
work of the bureau of plant Industry In the
matter ot studying - seed adulterations.
Under a clause Inserted In the last ap
propriation the department has been gath
ering seed from all over the country,
making examinations of the same, and
publishing the names of the Arms who are
adulterating the seed, especially forage
crop seed. It was pointed out that about
700.000 pounds ot Canadian blue grass Is
brought Into this country every year for
the purpose of adulterating Kentucky blu
grass. The Canadian seed is worth about
half as much as the Kentucky product.
Two hundred and fifty thousands pounds
of trefoil, a common and almost worthless
seed, Is Imported every year for the pur
pose of adulterating airaira seed. A great
deal of red clover Is adulterated with seed
of burr clover, which is obtained as a
waste product in the cleaning of wool.
This wool la sent from South American
countries, the burr clover Is cleaned out
of It, and then used for adulterating the
higher grade clovers.
Attention was called to tha work of the
department In the matter of grading of
grain. A great deal ot Interest has been
aroused In the question of proper and ef
fective systems of grain grading. The
officers of the bureau discussed this prob
lem from many standpoints, Indicating that
It Is the aim ot the department, through
Its investigations and studies, to stand
ardize the various grains in such a way
that a uniform system may be adopted
throughout the country. By this process
It is believed much of the complaint now
made by foreigners against our grain could
Snrcess In Farm Management.
A special feature of the bureau of plant
Industry's work lias been a study of what
Is called -Farm Management" in different
par 11. uf the country. These studies have
fpr their . cbject the securing of facts
bearing on the manner In which some ot
the beat farms are managed. When this
data Is once secured it la puuinsd to util
ise It In Its application to other sections
of the country. Here and. there through
oat the country there are always to be

SAN FRANCISCO. Jan. As a result
ef a three days' conference between J. 8.
Leeds, representing the refrigerator rnr
service of the Santa Fe road, nnd Robert
Graham, as Pacific roast representative
of the Armour refrigerating service, a re
duction of rates on deciduous fruits from
California points to the eastern markets
has been agreed upon. The reduction will
take effect at the beginning of the coming
season of the deciduous fruit shipping.
From Sacramento and Antloch to Chi
cago a. reduction of S10 per car Is made;
from the some California points to New
York a cut of S17.80 Is made. From San
Joaquin valley points, such as Stockton,
Fresno,. Hanford and Rakerfleld, the rate
to Chicago is reduced to 170 and to New
York from the same points to SS2.60. thus
practically effecting an equalization of
rates from points In the Sacramento and
the San Joaquin valley. to eastern points.
One of tho most Important features of
this new compact Is a clause providing that
no rebates or other special concessions
j be granted to any fruit shipper In
I California, and that the reduced rates shall
be strictly maintained.
