Washington, April 3. Tho Senate
seems bound to have its weekly ex
citomeut in connection wilh Cuban
affairs, oven if the Cuban resolutions
arc. uut still before it. Senator. Call
this week introduced a resolution which
would mean, if it were adopted, nothing
more nor less than a declaration of
war against Spain. It provided for
the sending of n big naval foice to
Cuba at oucu to protect citizens of the
Uuited States and prevent the viola
tion of treaty obligations, and directs
the Fresideut to inform Spain that the
Uuited States will by force iuterveue
if thete bo further occuireuco of mur
der and outrage or the putting to death
of prisoueis of war. Of couise the
adoption of such a resolution was
simply nut of the question, but it served
to keep the subject uppermost.
"Senator Butler of Vorth Carolina
thiiiks the making of moitgagn and

tirely unnecessary hardship forced
upon borrowers by capitalist who loan
money, and in older to put a stop to it
he iuttoduced a bill requiring tho ac
ceptance of curieut legal tender funds
in payment of mites, bonds w other
.pi it ate obligations. He said this idea
had been favored in both Republican
and Democratic plalfor:us and that this
was a good tiu.e to make party prom
incs iuto a law. In answer to Senator
Hill's questioti, Senator Butler slid his
bill ilid uot propose to inteiferu with
existing contracts, and added emphat
ically, 'I do not believe in bie.ikiug

The McKinloites had their innings

Cogies had lepresented the nomi
nating couvculion it would Il.tVtt been
a compaiatively easy matter to have
stampeded it in McKinle's favor. But
the pauie was soon over, although the
scare remains. It is said that from
this time on Speaker Reed's candidacy
is to be aggressively pushed to the
front to antagonize McKiulcy.
C. P. Huntington returned to Wash
ington this wevk, 'and it is reported
that he has paid off and dismissed the
most of his lobbying force, because he
has become satisticd that no Paciliu
railroad legislation will go through
Congress at the present session. This
seems a little strange, perhaps, iu view
of tho statement that the sub-committee
of tho House and Senate Pacific
railroads committees which has been
discussing tho matter, has practically
agreed upon the main points of a bill
to bo fuvorably reported to the Senate.
But nobody knows any better than Mr.
Huntington, with his long experience
wilh legislative bodies, Slate and Na
tional, tho difference between getting
a bill through and having it reported
from a committee. It is just possible,
too, that he may have been given a Up
from some of ids friends among the
Congressional leaden, At any rate
this report chimes in wilh the views of
vctoran observers who havo nothing to
do wilh Huntingtou, but who baso
their belief that there will be no Pacific
railroad legislation at this session upon
the well-known anxiety of the cou
ttolliug men in Congress to securo au
early adjournment, and their knowl
edge that tho railroad bill would be
debated for weeks if it was once taken
up, especially in the Senate. A bill
may be reported and placed on tho
calendar of both Uoujo and Senate
before adjournment, but even that is
uot cet tain.
Some day or other it may bo has

the ptesent building Congress will
ptobably decide upon a site for a new
government printing office. It was
anuouttced the other day that the
House Committee on Public Buildings
and Grouuds had agreed upon" a sito,
nut before anybody had au opportu
nity to congratulate an body else
the inevitablesquabble made its appear
ance in that committee. It might not
be a bad idea for Congress to provide
for the building and leave the selection
of a silo to some outside man who is
beyond tho reach of the influence of
real estate sharpers.
A delegation of sugar growers were
iu Washington this week to ask Con
gress for legislation that will prevent
the German sugar growers driving
them out of business, owing to the ex
port b mnty paid by Germany on sugar.
They did not ask for much, only that a
duty equal iu amount to the export
bouuty be put upon German sugar, but
that Is more than thoaro likely to get
from this Congress. According to this
delegation the Germau sugar growers
are taking advantage of the war in
Cuba, which has cut off our supply of
Cuban sugar, to attempt to drive all
tho sugar growers iu the Uuited States
into bankruptcy, and in order to help
them the German Government is con
templating an iucrease of tho export
bouuty on sugar.
The patronage of the United States
Senate is to bo hereafter equally
divided among the individual Senators,
no matter which party has a majority
iu that body. This agreement was
reached this week betweeu the Repub
lican and Democratic Senators, and as
soou as the atrangement cau be put
iuto operation the patronage will be
divided In the following ratio: Repub
licans. 44 89; Democrats, 89-89, ami
Populists, 6-89. Under this agree
ment the secretary aud sergeaut-at-atms
nominated by the Republican
caucus get left, as tho present occu
pants of those positions will keep them.

tried without result everything else,
then bought one bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery, and in two weeks was
cured. He is naturally thankful. It
