A very select .audience greeted Prof.

the Museum hall of the University.
Tho play Is a popular German comedy,
and It is doubtful if a more appropri
ate election, considering tho occasion,
could havo been made. The spectators,
although they could not understand all
that was said, enjoyed the play because
of the novelty cf tho scene, the strange
ness of the accent and the varied ges
ticulations of the young performers.
The play Is a Btory of the meeting of
a young cavalry officer and a beautiful
young girl who la living under the
guardianship of her croes old aunt. A
violent love springs up between the
two, but a marriage Is impossible be
cause of tho aunt's opposition. Tho
young girl finally works up a play in

by a clevor bit of strategy gets a place

OLD WORLD STORY
OF BEET SUGAR
Some Interesting Facts and Figures
Bogarding tho Saccharine Pro
duct of tho Tuber.
(Tribune Special Correspondence.)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 16, Tho pro
duction of beet sugar In tho old world
last year was: Germany, 1,807,300 tons;
Australia, 1,162,000 tons; Russia, 1,160,
600 tons; France, 77S.200 tons; Belgium,
109,200 tons, and Italy, 130,000 tons.
Seven tons of beets produced one ton
Writing from Stettin, Germany, upon
the topic of sugar, United States Consul
Kehl says that there la a decrease ln
the exportation of raw sugar from tho
Empire. He says:
"Official figures covering tho German
sugar campaign of 1902-4 lndlcato the
beginning of a reverse of former condi
tions I. e., the homo consumption will
exceed the quantity exported. Figures
for the sugar season 1003-4 that Is,
since the Brussels sugar convention
went Into effect will not be available
for several months; but If tho export of
raw sugar from this Consular district
can bo taken as an Indication of tho
export In general, the sugar remaining
In the country will, for the first Umo ln
ten years, exceed the amount exported.
In this respect, ono of the objects of
the convention 'to promote the devet
opmnt of the consumption of sugar' la
properly developing Itself, as far as
Germany Is concerned. Statistics show
that the total amount of raw sugar ex
ported from Germany during the eleven
years 1S91-1001 amounted to 10,538,130
tons, while the home consumption
amounted t6 7,144,201 tons, or -10.4 per
cent of the total produced, against CO. 6
per cent, the amount exported. In 1893
91 the home c6nsumptlon amounted to
574, 50C tons, while- ln 1002-3 It amounted
to S11.G93 tons.
"Within the last year the local retail
price of lump and granulated sugar
dropped from 32 pfennigs to 21 pfennigs
per pound, or nearly li cents. When
the new suar the sugar which was
manufactured during the last quarter of
1903 comes on the market a further de
crease In price and more than a corre
sponding Increase ln home consumption -can
be expected. The export of raw
sugar from Stettin to tho United States
during the calendar year 1903 amounted
to SSSS3.20, against $763,922.49 In 1902;
51.243,321.22 ln 1901, and $2.204.588. 8S ln

SUCCESS IS ASSURED.
Tho admission of Boise sets a period to
tho talk of the enemies of the Pacific Na
tional leacue that tho league will bo a
failure this year. Tho one fact that each
club in tho leajuo has on deposit a guar
antee of $1000 to finish tho seaaon Is a
surety that tho lcatruc will not go up ln
smoke, as has been predicted by tho en
vious ones on tho outside.
The usefulness of the leaguo Is well Il
lustrated by the fact that four good States
aro represented and that each town has
a strong outside patronnce to draw to
holiday and Sunday pamcs. Boise Is con
siderably stronpor than was Helena last
year and will certainly bo able to put
up a ball team capablo of meeting the
crack teams ln tho other cltlos ln tho cir

With this strong four-club league as the
foundation, It would not be surprising If
tho lcacuo branched out before the sea

Pacific National league will be much
stronger at tho end of tho season than
the northern towns ln the coast league.

TOM & JBRRT CLOTHING HOUSE,
I. N. Lewis, Prop, f
DAY IN SENATE AND BOUSE
Senate Resumes De
bate on the Qanal
WASHINGTON, Feb. 20. Panama
was the subject of three speeches ln the
Senate today and wa3 the only subject
of genoral Importance. Mr. Spooner
completed the speech begun by him on
Thursday, and Mr. Morgan and Mr.
Money both made brief addresses.
Mr. Morgan spoke In opposition to
tho treuty, as usual, and announced
that ho would not be heard again on
Mr. Money announced his Intention
of voting for tho ratification of the
canal treaty, but criticised the part ta
ken by the United States In connection
with the secession of Panama.
During his speech Mr. Spooner en
gaged ln a spirited colloquy with Mr.
Tillman. He defended tho President
against the assumption that hl posi
tion on Panama involved the right of
the Southern States to secede, and Mr.
Tillman asked: "But would we havo
failed If we had had ln Franco or Eng
land a big friend like Panama had ln
the United States, to keep you people
Mr. Morgan urged that the treaty
should bo bo amended as unequivocally
to permit the intervention of the United
Stateo In case of necessity. He urged
as a reason for this suggestion his opin
ion that ultimately Panama would drift
buck Into the union with Colombia un
less held In leash by thlp country.
Mr. Morgan declared that the vote
on the treaty was being unduly hast
ened and asserted this haste was due
to complications with tho new Panama
Canal company. j
Mr. Monoy, In a speech, said: "What
ever broken faith or blighted honor at
taches to tho country was not brought
on by tho Democratic party; titlther Is
either branch of Congress responsible.
The censure belongs to the Adminis
tration and Its supporters, as they are
accessories after the fact."
Mr. Money declared that the Presi
dent's course In violation of Interna
tional law had been such as to render
It Indefensible. He was sure that this
and other acts of the United States
ln connection with the Panama revolt
would deserve and receive the censure
of history. But, bad as our course had
been In Panama, he said that It was
no worse than our course ln Hawaii
and the Philippines had been. Ho also
contended that the President had been
wrong ln his recognition of Panama,
but concluded that, as he had given It
recognition, It was established and Its
rights as a nation fixed, and this status
being fixed tho republic had a right to
enter Into the treaty.
Mr. Money referred to the action of
tho State Legislature of Mississippi re
questing him to vote for the canal
treaty, saying that that request had
as much Influence with him as would
Mr. Spooner resumed the speech
Which ho had begun Thursday last. He
said that If the United States had
abandoned the treaty the French Gov
ernment would have assumed our re
sponsibilities, which this Nation would
not have tolerated. Mr. Spooner de
clared It to be strange that men who
had spoken with such feeling of the
condition of Cuba before the Spanish
war should not have a word to say for
In response to a question from Mr.
Tillman, Mr. Spooner defended the or
ders of the Government of the United
States prohibiting the landing of troops
within fifty miles of the canal. Mr.
Tillman said that tho United States
never would havo Interfered ln Pana
ma's affairs If the canal had not been
involved, and Mr. Spooner replied that
the President had obeyed tho acts of
Congress ln all that ho had done.
The President, Mr. Spooner contend
ed, had every reason to bcllevo that
the Government of Panama was Btable,
for Colombia, without treasury or navy
and with a small army and no means
of reaching Panama, could not bo ex
pected to be very formidable. He said
that If the South Carolina Senator had
been ln Panama he would have been
the chief conspirator there. Mr. Till
man replied that his antagonist had
paid him a great compliment.
Mr. Spooner retorted that ln making
this admission Mr. Tillman was conced
ing all that ho had himself contended
Mr. Tillman would not, however, ad
mit that he had any high regard for
the Colombians. "I have called 'em a
mangy lot," he said, "and the Senator
from Wisconsin has made 'cm out a
mangier lot than I have."
Mr. Spooner then entered upon a dis
cussion of the question of tho benefits
to bo derived from the canal, tho
President's right to recognize Panama,
and Colombian ownership of property
In the Panama railroad and Panama
canal under present conditions. On the
last-named point ho took Issue with
Mr. Morgan, contending that Colom
bia's ownership hod passed with her
Referring to the President's course,
Mr. Spooner said that no ono need roll
under his tongue as a sweet morsel tho
contention that in recognizing Panama
the President had committed himself
to the secession of the Southern States,
which was, he said, an entirely differ
ent matter. That would do for a Con
federates' Daughters' meeting, but not
for Confederate Veterans themselves.
Tho Sonato then adjourned.

Build a Greater Navy,
Is the House
WASHINGTON, Feb. 20. This was
a field day ln the House. The naval ap
propriation bill was under considera
tion and the discussion encompassed
various topics, much of it revolving
more or less around politics.
After Mr. Dayton (Rep,, W. Va.) of
tho Commlttco on Naval Affairs had
pleaded for a larger navy, Mr. Hitch
cock (Dem Neb.) declared that there
was gross national extravagance ln the
annual appropriation bills. Ho assert
ed, too, that the larger Items ln tho
army and navy supply bills went to
Mr. Hardwlck (Dera., Ga.) precipi
tated a discussion on tho Philippine
question by declaring that the reten
tion of the Islands was responsible for
the demand for a largo navy.
Mr. Williams, the minority leader,
sought to secure an adjournment until
Tuesday, that proper respect might be
paid to the memory of George Wash
ington, on Monday. Mr. Payne, Now
York, thought It would be more patri
otic to celebrate the anniversary day
building up the navy, and the House
adjourned until Monday with tho naval
bill still pending.
Taking up the declaration of Mr.
Fitzgerald of New York, tliat It was
the purpose of the Government to pro
cure a navy greater than tha.t of Ger
many, Mr. Dayton asked If there was
any American citizen who would say
that this Nation should not, If tho occa
sion came, defend ltBelf against either
Germany or Great Britain. Ho charred
Mr. Fitzgerald with favoring Improve
ments for the naval establishments ln
New York, and ln tblo connection he
said there were too many navy yards,
many of which could be cut out.
Mr. Dayton said that the navy on ltu
proBont basis could not compete with
any of th great powern.
Mr. Hitchcock of Nebraska opposed
the spirit of extravagance which, ho
said, prevails. Ho declared that this
Republic was moro extravagant than
any power on earth. With the coming
of militarism and imperialism had
come that spirit which had como with
every monarchy of wasteful extrava
gance for the army and navy. Ha
spoko of the "gigantic and wasteful an
nual appropriations." The army and
navy, asserted Mr. Hitchcock, "were
absorbing J2 for every 56 taken from
the people ln taxation-"
Mr. Hitchcock asserted that the larg
er Items In both tho army and navy
bills went to the trusts the armor
trust, the railroad trust and the ship
building trust. Tho largest Item In tho
army bill out of a total of $75,000,000
was $40,000,080 for transportation. In
the naval bill there was an Item of $12,
000,000 which was to go to the armor
plate trust. There was only three armor-plate
factories at the. most to re
ceive this money and two of these, the
Carnegie and Bethlehem plants, he de
clared, were controlled by tho same
men, who united and conspired every
time they made a contract with the
Government to mako the same price for
Mr. Hitchcock said at tho proper tlmo
he would offer an amendment, making
It mandatory on tho Secretary of the
Navy to build an armor-plate factory,
although he had no hope that his
amendment would prevail. These ap
propriations wero made for the benefit
of tho trusts, he said, ln the faco of
anti-trust legislation and an appropria
tion of $500,000 by the last Congress to
Mr. Hitchcock said the Governmont
was supposed to be after the trusts,
yet was making large contracts with
them Itself and was paying them the
There was discussion, between Mr.
Cooper, chairman of the Insular com
mlttoe, and Messrs. Hardwlck and
Coohran over tho retention of the Phil
ippines and the position of the Repub
lican administration on that subject.
Mr. Cooper deollned to say whether or
not the Intention of tho Republicans
was to withdraw from the Islands.
At 3:45 the committee rose and the
following bills wero passed:
For tho relief of settlers on lands ln
Sherman county, Or.: to regulate tho
practice of medicine and surgory In In
dian Territory: regulating tho practice
of pharmacy ln the Indian Territory;
to ratify acts of the Legislature of Ari
zona; providing for an Issue of bonds
for the construction o- a station for
agricultural .experiment purposes In

motion to take a rocesB.
Mr. Williams then appealed to Mr,
Payno to withdraw his motion that tho
