COMMITTEE AGREE ON GROUT BILL

From The Journal Bureau, Room AS, Tort
Washington, Jan. 21.— Private ■ advices
from Seattle to-day say Judge Arthur
H. Xoyes has resigned the Alaskan judge
chip. The report says that vessels reached
Seattle . yesterday from a north Pacific
port, where they had word to this effect
from men who came from Nome by dog
A. K. Wheeler, Judge Noyes' private
secretary, now in Washington, says there
is no truth In the report. Judge Noyes
has no Intention of resigning, and espec
ially not in midwinter, thus forfeiting
pay and allowances from now until navi
Mr. Wheeler has been delayed in his
visit to Minneapolis, and he will not get
iway before Thursday.
The agriculture committee of the sen
ate in executive session this morning
agreed to report the Grout oleomargarine
hill favorably Wednesday. As expected.

Representative Burke has had a number
of inquiries from Rosebud Indians relative
to payment for lands in the great Sioux
reservation remaining vacant Feb. 10,
■1900, for which the government is obliged
by treaty to pay 50 cents an acre. He
called at the interior department and at
the Indian office and urged that some ac
tion be taken looking toward the payment,
but he found that the land office has not
completed the computation of the land 3
vacant at the date named, and will urge
that it be completed and sent to con
gress, so that payment may be made be
fore congress adjouraß. Under the law
tiie money is to be deposited in the
treasury and to draw 5 per cent interest.
In all probability nothing will be done
by the Minnesota delegation in the way of
agreeing regarding the bill to give the
Btate another federal judge until after the
legislature fills Senator Davis' place. If
the members of the house then insist, as
they do now, upon being consulted when
the time to make the appointment arrives,
the senators will have to consent, or the
bill will not pass the house at this session;
and if it doesn't pass now, it will hardly
pass next session, unless the house mem
bers change their policy, which is unlikely.
The representatives claim that inasmuch
as the favorable action of both houses is
necessary before the bill can become a
law, the senators and representatives
ought to have an equal voice in selecting
the new judge. In all probability the sen
ators will not object to this proposition.
The extra judge bill is now before the
senate on a favorable report from the com
mittee on judiciary, and is being pushed
by Senator Thurston, who wants it passed
before March 4, when his senatorial ca
reer will end. He has amended the bill so
that it provides for a new judge for Ne
braska as well as Minnesota. The bill will
encounter no opposition in the senate and
should pass that body and reach the house
in a short time.
Senator Nelson to-day presented an
amendment to the river and harbor bill by
which it is intended to secure a uniform

It jprovides for contracts for deepening

The river is to be divided into subdi

For maintaining the specified depth a cer

to be paid to the contractor, such percent
age to be fixed in the contract.
Provision is made for surveys along the
entire length of the river and",52,000,000 is
appropriated for the purpose.

A former Venezuelan minister .asserts
that the politicians at Caracas are mak
ing a determined raid on the Bermudez
Asphalt company. They tried it before,
on a modest scale, squeezing $30,000 out
of the company, when United States Min
ister Loomis protested and stopped fur
ther action of this description. ,
The government,, the minister says, lis
tened to reason then, but has now lost its
head, through greed, and offers to restore
the company's property for a million dol
lars, although it is said to have been ille
gally taken by a dictatorial decree.
The assertion is again made if foreign
governments permit the action of the
Venezuelan authorities to pass without
protest all foreign investors will be driven
from South America, for they say they are
always illegally plundered.
The assertion is made that no former
Venezuelan government would have dared
to act as this one does toward Washing

authorities are counting on the disinclina
tion of strong nations to coerce weak ones.
At the office here of the Orinoco com

seized by the Venezuelan authorities, the

Prince of Wales May Collapse
Mew York Sun Spools! Sarvlcet 0
London. Jan. 21.—The Prince of Wales is in an alarming condition of health.
The prince is very far from being a strong or robust man, despite his appearance.
He is a sufferer from heart disease to such an extent that when he had to submit to
two very painful operations a couple of years ago in connection with his brokfen knee
cap, his doctors were afraid to administer any anaesthetics, lest he should succumb to
the influence and pass away while undergoing the operations.
After the death of his eldest son he became to such an extent subject to melancholy,
culminating in physical as well as nervous prostration, as to give very serious cause
for alarm. •
That he has been deeply affected by the events of the last few days was apparent
to all who saw him at the railroad station last evening. The excitement and the loss
of sleep have been too much for him, and no one who has been aware of the true condi
tion of his health during the last two or three years can feel surprised that there has
been in his case, too, a collapse.
Indeed, it is within the bounds of possibility that there may be a sudden and un
toward culmination of his heart trouble before many hours.
In that event his own popular belief that he would not live to reign would be real
ized. He often spoke about this belief, and he Is known to have made a large bet that
he would not live to rule over England as king.

McConnell's confirmation will be op
posed by some of the republican senators
who challenge his political record. While
he has never been identified with the
populists or democrats, the fact that,he
held office under Governor Line! is used
by many as an argument that his repub

Senator Thompson says that MeConnell
was retained in the dairy and food in

efficiency and there was no politics in it.
Secretary H. T. Tolmle, of the dairy and
food commission, declares that it is not
necessary that the appointment of a com
missioner be ratified by the senate. Where
as' the statutes expressly state that heads
of departments shall be appointed "with
the advice and consent of. the senate."
..No such language is to be found in the

BEARS HAVE AN INNING
RECKLESS ISLOADIXG OP STOCKS
Last Week's Persistent Decline Re
sponsible for the Market—Sub
stantial Rally Later.
New York, Jap. 21.—The bears in the
stock market found things very much to
their liking this morning and there was a
reckless unloading of stocks for some
thing over half an hour after the opening.
The desire to save profits or to prevent
losses on largely extended long accounts
was the principal element of the weak
ness, but the critical condition of the
queen of England had a very marked sen
timental effect. Thus, while the selling
of stocks for London account was a small
element in the break in prices, last
week's persistent decline in prtces here in
the process of speculativ liquidation was
directly acocuntable for the action of the
market. The impairment of margins had
the effect of very' general demands from
brokers for aditional security from their
The inevitable effect of such a condition
is the placing of large orders to sell
stocks. The bear party on the exchange,
aware of the fact that there were very
large selling orders to be executed, were
alert to take the market away from those
seeking to liquidate and afterwards to
offer prices down with the purpose of un
covering stop loss orders.
With the flood of selling orders for both
accounts which were thrown upon the
market, the prices of sroaks broke in a
somewhat alarming manner. A large
number of the most prominent stocks in
the list suffered to the extent of between
1 and 2 points. The unwieldly proportions
of the short interest in the market again
proved a powerful suporting influence and
bears showed themselves eager to cover.
The lowest prices of the very weak stock 3
were mere momntary dips with immediate
The substantial rally in prices caused the
excitement to subside and dealings fell
away to a comparatively small volume. The
undertone'of the market continued rather
nervous but the heavy liquidation ceased.
Only in the final dealings did the up
ward movement take on renewed vigor
under the impetus of enormous buying in

91 and the earlier losses were completely
wiped out and net gains established, vary

Will the Kaiser Claim the Throne?
Now York Sim 3s*ciml Servlom.
London, Jan. 21.—"Was it love alone for his dying grandmother that brought the
kaiser so hastily to England?" asked one of the crowd who watched the Emperor of
Germany leap from the train at Charing Cross station.
There is a question whether the kaiser is not the more rightful heir to the throne
of England than Wales. Some political writers in Germany openly proclaimed It last
year, and they were not suppressed for lese majeste.
There is no Salic law in England, and women have frequently occupied the throne.
Victoria herself was chosen because she was the eldest heir, although there were other
junior males. The kaiser's mother, Empress Frederick, is the oldest child of the queen,
and it might be claimed that she should be sovereign of England instead of Wales, in
which case the kaiser, as her oldest child, would inherit it.
Thrones have been claimed many times on far less rights than these.
