will " bo advised of tho ninny
avenues of cscnpo that will open
themselves to tho fiend as tho
Swnuhildn ncars her destination

''Nothing will be left undouo to

and tho Cousul at this city will bo

"If tho woathor bo clear tho

Tho secretary read the minutes
of previous meetinu, at which the

ed. President Dole administered
the oath to Mr. Jones.
Mr. Blown rend tho report of
committee, recommending u par
don to Niemann, serving sentence
for assault with deadly weupon.
His wife wns iu a delicate condi
tion nnd his family dc.tituto.
The prisoner's conduct had lieou
good in confinement.
Tho Attorney General confirm
ed nil tho btutemeuta of tho com
mittee. Tho report was uuauimously
Niemann is tho volunteer who
while in drink shot a comrade
while roluiniug homo latent night
nfter drill about a year ugo, and
wns sentenced on conviction to
nine months' imprisonment.
The next ensosubmitted for con
sideration wns that of W. H.
Coulter. Ho wns sentenced to six
months' imprisonment for larceny,
nnd nfter sorving his time was m
1891 bontonced to six years' im
prison men t for robbery. It was
left to tho Council whether ho
should bo piudoned, on account
of hi3 wife nml family of
whom a clorgynmu on tho Coast
gives a high opinion, but upon
condition ho leavo the country.
The Attorney General mudo
remarks, saying ho did not wish
to intluenco tho decision, but ho
drew a distinction between a con
ditional pardon, such as that 10
conimended, and nn uuconditiounl
one. It wus not nltognther on
account of his wife aud family,
but because tho prisoner hud dis
played goud conduct in prison nud
of other extenuating circuiu
stnnces. Mr. Joues was dubious ns to
tho responsibility being taken by
tho Council without n recommend
ation by tho inspectors. Ho did
not want, as n privnto citizen, to
bo too rondy to rolense criminals
from motives of sympathy.
Mr. Konuedy moved that tho
matter bo laid on tho table until
such time as a recommendation
for pardon shall hnvo been re
ceived from tho prison inspectors.
If a mnu is fit to livo at liberty iu
another couutry, ho is fit to live
at liberty in this couutry.
Mr. Winston moved in amoud
mout that a committee of three be
nppointed to confor with tho pri

BOUNTY FOR BEET SUGAR

There was n henriug before tho
Ways and Menus Cominitteo of
the House of Hopr8pntnti.cs. nt
Washington, lately, of the beet
suj-nr interest. Bilow is n report
of tho piocedingh:
Henry T. Oxtinrd, of Grnnd
Islnnd, Neb., president of tho
American Boot Sugar society, in
behnlf of the industry, charged
that tho present tariff not only
failed to give protection to tho
sugar rnisors, but diRcournped thn
investment of additional capital. It
had beon predicted that under tho
McKinley law tho beet sugar in
dustry wouid grow rapidly and
threo refineries had been built
during tho administration of the
tarill"; but the change had deterred
now investments. Any schedule
ou sugar which had been iu force
since 1800, except that of the Wil
eou tariir, would permit thesprend
of tho beet sugnr growing. Beet
sugnr could bo produced iu 20
states, and under a proper tnriff
tho United Stutes could in lo
years raise all tho sugar necessa
ry for homo consumption. The
beet industry protested ngninst

departmenlal reports and other
authorities to bIiow that this
country had tho climate aud cap
ital required for tho production
of its own sugnr. Evor other
nation, oven Sweden, which could
supply it-olf with sugar, hnd
taken every measure to do so.
Cost of labor, uncertainty as to
legisintion, export liouuties in
countries and decline in
prices wero nil operating to keep
out of investment i" '"nt

thoy would work wonders. Tho

Ho urged the abrogation of the
Speaking of tho conflioling in

millers of Hour and othora who
desired to ubo sugar in reciprocity
