MAT' CONGRESS IS DOING
A Dull Day in House of Represen?
Mr. AIImi, ol Wct>ru?kn, Dl?cn??f? llic
Proposition t?> Pension ?'?lUciler
mi' huldlcri ItcKOlnllOH Against
B'orclole Ann? xullou.
Washington, D. c, Jan. 7.?Tho
House or Representatives was engaged
all ilny on the legislative nnd execu?
tive appropriation bill, and completed
it substantially as reported, except the
items Cor the Civil Service Commission,
xvhich went over until Monday.
There were several side debates dur?
ing the day. One ot these brought out
Mr. Grosven?r, of Ohio, In a speech of
an hour on current political questions,
lie said the country was enjoying.pros?
perity owing to the maintenance of the
jgold standard and .passage of the Ping
ley tariff bill. The Philippines also
came in for attention, on the discovery
of an Item of $12,000 for naval charts
of the islands. The Item was ruled out
on a point of order by Mr. Dockcry,
the chairman, Mr. Payne holding that
: he Philippines were still foreign ter?
ritory, and ns such not the proper sub?
ject of the legislation proposed.
Mr. McClcury (Rep,), of Minnesota,
sought to withdraw from the calendar
the banking and currency bill. Mr. ''ox.
(Dem.), of Tennessee, declared this bill
had been Irregularly reported and that
the Democrats of the committee bad
been exoluded from the committee room
when the measure was under considera?
Without granting the request for the
Withdrawal or the bill the House, at
C tVclook, adjourned.
When tho Senate convened to-day
Mr. Pagco, of Florida, presented a
memorial from a cump of Confederate
veterans of Ocala, Flu., protesting
against the adoption of the proposition
of Mr. Hutler, of North Carolina, to
pension ex-Confederate soldiers.
In this connection Mr. Allen, of Ne?
"I believe a word on tills subject Is
?due at this point. 1 do not bidleve
there was ever u serious purpose on
tho part or tho Senator who Is the
author of the proposed amendment to
pension Confederate veterans. 1 think
the author of the amendment, like the
President of the United States, was
carried away by his feelings. In my
opinion altogether too much attention is
being paid to It.
"It would be an injustice to the rank
nnd file of the Confederate soldiers to
say that they would consider seriously
n.ny proposition to receive pensions.
They have cared for themselves for a
third of a century. They have cared
tor their cemeteries and lor their dead.
It seems to me that the whole matter
can be closed by saying that both the
President of the United States nnd the
author of tho amendment were car?
ried away by their enthusiasm. In my
judgment, speaking from the stand?
point of a Northern soldier, it Is time
to c?ose this incident. It may be closed
by tho happy thought that all bitter?
ness and sectionalism have been wiped
out by the late Spanish war."
At the conclusion of the routine busi?
ness, in accordance with the order
adopted yesterday, the District of Co?
lumbia appropriation bill wan tnken up
AGAINST FORCEABLE ANNEXA?
Mr. Mason, of Illinois, offered the
"Whereas, nil Just powers of govern?
ed are derives from the consent of
the government: therefore be it.
"Resolved by the Senate of the United
Stntes, That the Government of the
United States or America will not at?
tempt to govern the people of any
other country In the world without the
consent of the people themselves or
subject them by force to our dominion
against their will."
Mr. Mason naked that the resolution
lie on the table, announcing his inten?
tion of addressing the Senate upon it
The House bill granting extra pay
to officers and enlisted men or United
States volunteers was called up by Mr.
Phoup nnd passed without amendment.
The bill grants two months' extra pay
to troops that have served outside of
this country and one month's extra pay
to those who have served only In tills
Mr. Morgan, of Alabama, gave notice
that at 2 o'clock he would nsk the Ren
ate to fix a time for a vote on the
Nicaragua Canal bill, but after tlie bill
allowing extra, pny to volunteers had
been passed the Senate, nt 1:45 p. m.,
went Into executive session, Mr. Allison
saying that It was the understanding
that ro business except consideration
of the District bill was to be transacted

Some of the Queer Customs Thai Pre*
The Bedouins perfume their handker?
chiefs with nn odoriferous earth called
"ares." which comes from Aden, south
of Arabia, and is in much requisition
by the desert Arabs. These nomad peo?
ple use civet to anoint their bodies, a
substance of the consistency of honey,
strong and offensive in itself, but agree?
able when a very small proportion 13
mixed with other ingredients.
Some perfumes have a stronger seetit
than others, some give out their fra?
grance at special times. Certain flow?
ers need the warmth of the sun, some
the soft rain and others the cool night
air before they venture to throw out
their redolence Into the atmosphere;
Bartholm says: "The odor of the rose?
mary indicates the coast of Spain more
than ten leagues out to sea." And an?
other writer declares that the "whole
air of South Africa Is filled with the
smoke and odor of perfume." In Capua
there was one long street called "The
Seplasla." which consisted entirely . f
perfume and unguent shops. And in
Bombay the greater proportion of
wares exhibited in the bazaars are per?
fumes of endless varieties.
Cinnamon Is an aromatic bark of
odorous fragrance. It Is a native of

the first spice sought after or procured

ern." The Egyptians and Romans held
it In high esteem.
