VALUABLE LANDS NOT DRAINED
More Than 50,000,000 Acres of Lands
Will Net he Reclaimed-Delega
tions of Farmers Urged the Impor
tance of the Amendment-Bat
33,600,090 is Incorporated For the
Pleasure of the Residents of Wash
ington, D. C.
Washington, Special.-An amend
ment carrying an appropriation of
$150,000 to 3how the people of the
South how to drain and reclaim 50,
000,000 acres of the most valuable
land in the United States, was kept
out of the sundry civil bill by reason
of the opposition of Senator Hale,
of Maine. The amendment was one
introduced in the . Senate by Senator
.Foster, of - Louisiana, and endorsed
by Southern Senators. With the
elimination of the drainage amend
ment, there was incorporated in the
same bill by the same Senator from
Maine an amendment appropriating
$3,600,000 for the purchase of eleven
city blocks to afford a better view of
the new union station from the Capi
tol and office building occupied by
Senators. The amendment that was
eliminated from the bill by the
Senator from Maine would have re
sulted in the development of 50,000,
000 acres of the richest and most pro
ductive land in the entire country,
thus adding hundreds of millions in
dollars to the, wealth of the nation.
The amendment incorporated in the
hill at the instance of Senator Hale
satisfied the whim of a few Senators.
The first amendment is endorsed by
the farmers of the country, three
large delegations having come to
Washington from the South and
Southwest and appeared before com
mittees of Congress to urge the im
1 portance of the appropriation for a
survey with the object of proving how
this waste land may be drained for
settlers and home-seekers. The sec
ond amendment is endorsed largely
i by people who live in Washington
Senator Hale is next to the oldest
member of the S?nt.te in point of
service, and his viewpoint is largely
restricted to New England. He is a
product of another day and out of
touch with the modern thought for
the development of the country. The
people of Maine have decided to re
tire him to private life after March,
and as a result he is not a candidate
for re-election. The efforts of Sena
tor Hale well entitle him to the re
spite from public life that awaits
Gov. Glenn on Negro Education.
Cleveland, Ohio, Special.-A severe

HONOR MEMORY BILL NYE
North Carolina Editors Think
of Monument for Grave.
Wrightsville Beach, N. C., Special
-One of the features of the opening
session of the annual convention o?
the North Carolina Press Association,
which convened here Wednesday, was
the launching of a movement to erect
a substantial memorial to the late
"Bill" Nye, the humorist, whose
death occurred at his home in this,
State in 1896, and whose unmarked
grave in Henderson county^ is the
mecca for many tourists.
The movement, which was introduc
ed iu the course of an essay OD
journalistic problems by R. W. Vin
cent, of the Charlotte Observer, was
eloquently seconded by James H
Caine, of the Asheville Citizen, in an
enthusiastic speech. Mr. Vincent
said, in part:
"Up yonder in the mountain fast

marked save by a rough stone bould

is the only monument ht desired, lies

claim as of our craft-the lamented

to have been born in North Carolina

the best years of his life were spent
at beautiful Buck Shoals and the best
work of his career was done there.
It was in the Carolina foothills that
tie gave up the unequal struggle, and
it is there that he is buried.
"We cannot more ornately mark
his last resting place if we respect
his wishes, but we can erect in Hen
dersonville or Asheville, or, if you
will, in the shade of the Capitol at
Raleigh, a suitable and substantial
memorial to show to the world that

"When to Wean the Pigs."
Senator Tillman attended the re
cent agricultural meeeting at Clem

on hog raising. His talk was given
the closest attention; everybody was
interested, and the Senator was en
couraged to dissertate at length on
the subject. He told all about the
business, so he thought.
But there was one unsatisfied fel
low in the audience; he craved more
knowledge. So when Senator Till
man threw down the gap, inviting any
questions from his audience, this man,
from 'way back in the hall arose and
"Now, Senator, you have told us
all about selecting the right kinds of
stock, all about breeding, all about

proper care of them, but there*s one
thing I want to know, and that is,
when to wean the pigs?"
The Senator, with characteristic
deliberation, turned upon his in

replied: "Well, Mr. Damnfool, I
