From Our Regular Correspondent.
Vashinqton, Nov. 1C Caution and
conservatiini are the most, marked
features of the utterances of the senat
ors and representatives who w.Ul shape
the legislation of the coming session of
congress. There is, of course, some
talk about extreme political legisla
tion, but it doesn't emanate from the
men who have the necessary influence
to get their ideas carried out. These
men, and it is believed they have the
sympathy of the president, know that
there is an enormous amount of work
that ought to be done at the coming
session and the best way to get. it done
is to have as little partisan friction as
Senator Thurston, of Nebraska, ex
presses the opinion that an army reor
ganization bill will be passed at the
coming session of congress; also that
the Nicaragua!) canal bill will get
through in some shape, probably dif
fering considerably from the bill passed
by the house at the last session, but
thinks the opposition to the ship sub
sidy bill makes its chances doubtful.
It is expected that congress will pass
a bill authorizing the laying of the
much-needed Pacific cable. It would
be certain were it not for the big inter
ests which oppose government owner
ship of the cable, in the interest of pri
vate money-making. Admiral Brad
ford, chief of the Naval Bureau of
Equipment, says in his annual report)
of tho survey of a route for this cable
by the United States Ship Nero: "A
satisfactory route for an all-American
cable for the purpose of connecting the
Pacific coast with the outlaying colo
nial possessions of the United States in
the Pacific and with China and Japan
has been discovered, thoroughly ex
plored, surveyed and mapped." That
passes the question on to congress for
One of the important matters to be
determined by congress at the coming
sesslou is tnat oi congressional reap
portionment under the new census.
From the start, when there was one
representative to each 30,000 inhabit
ants, the ratio has been increased every
ten years, and since the census of 1890
has been one representative for each
173,901 persons. The present census
shows an increase of population of
more than 13,000,000, and there miiHt,
of course, be a proportionate increase
in the ratio of representatives to popu
lation. How to provide for that in
crease In an equitable manner is no
easy problem. The house, with its 350
members, is already at times a very
unweildy body, and yet if the uew ra
tio is to reduce the representation of
no state there will have to be u very
large increase in membership. The
ratio that seems most favored, except
by those from the four states Arkan
sas, Kansas, Maine uud Virginia -which
would under it eaqh have one
less representative than at present, is
that of one representative to each 200,
000 persons. That would add eighteen
to the present membership of the
Congress must deal with a number
of claims arising from our occupation
of the Philippines. One is that of the
Eastern Extension company, a British
corporation, which claims a monopoly
of the cable business to and from the
Philippines under a Spanish charter.
It also claims damages for American
interruption of its business. Really it
should pay a bounty for the largely in
creased cable business made by the
Americans. The only railroad iu the'
Philippines also wants damages and
the continuance of a Spauish subsidy
of about $22,000 a year. Another unique
lot of claims that will be presented to
congress are thoso of Japanese citizens
detained on ac
plague scare in
That we are not as a uation growing
more careful is apparent from a glance
at the annual report of the Superin
tendent of the Dead Letter oQlce,
which shows an Increase of nearly a
million pieces of mail matterthe to
tal number of pieces received being 7,
536,158, of which 36,000 were letters
with no address at all. Money to the
amount of 944,140, and checks, notes,
money orders, etc, to the face value of
$1,136, 645 were enclosed in letters re
ceived by the office during the year. .
Mr. George D. Moulton, of Indian
Territory, who is now in Washington
says of his discoyery of extensive do
posits of asphalt on the grounds of the
Choctaw Indians: "This pure asphalt
has not been discovered heretofore In
in tliis country and there is no scienti
fic name for it. The chief supply for
asphalt has been the lake on the is
land of Trinidad and the Gilsonte
mines In Utah. In the Indian Terri
tory there are mines of asphalt where
bituminous sand and bituminous lime
stone are mixed in such proportion
that the product is fit, with out other;
preparation than grinding and heating,',
to be laid as street paving. The asp
halt mine which I found is about 96 per
Arrangements for the celebration of
the establishment of the capital at
Washington, December 12, are practi
cally complete. The President will
hold a reception to the Governors of
States and Territories, after which
they will be escorted to the Capital,
where a joint Congressional com
memoration meeting wil be held In the
hall of the House, by a military, naval,
and civic parade, of which Gen. Nelson
A. Miles will be chief marshal, and in
the evening a grand reception will be
held in the beautiful Corcoran Gallery
of Art. Addresses will be delivered at
the Capital by Senators Hoar, Daniel
and McComas and Representatives
Payne and Richardson.
Monterey, Mex.f Nov. 21. The re
port that the American officers hare
unearthed ancient records in Pekin
showing that Chinese discovered
America 1,500 years ago and erected
temples in Mexico, has aroused the
greatest Interest among the scientific
men of Monterey and through out the
country. The Chinese temples alluded
to are in the State of Sonora, on the
Pacific Coast. The ruin of one of the
temples was discovered near the town
of Ures in that State about two years
ago. One of the largest tablets found
in the ruin was carved with Chinese
characters, which were partially de
ciphered by a learned Chinaman, who
visited the ruins at the request of the

A Daring Thief.
Erik, Pa., Nov. 22. While the, store
was full of customers, hundreds of peo
ple passing the window and 'a, watch
maker working not six feet away from
him, a dariug thief stole a tray of. dia
monds valuod at $2,500 from S. Loeb, a
fashionable jeweler, and hAd been gone
an hour heforo the robbery wus discov
ered. The proprietor of the store and tho
police are astounded at the novel ami
daring tactics of the rpbbei? He hud
secured entrance .to the cellar and
saweu uis wayuirougn me noor into

the box which forms the floor of tho
display window. , Then he sawed
through . the thin boards until he had
a hole six inches wide and a foot long,
the sawdust being hidden by the tissue
paper on which.the jewels: were dis
played. This hole gave him access to the tray
of diamonds, which he tipped on edge,
permitting the glittering shower of
jewels to slide down irito the window1
box. The tray was replaced over the
hole, and it was" nbt until a clerk wont
to display the gems to a customer that
the theft was discovered.
There it scant 'hope of apprehending
the robber, as it is known he departed
from the basemeptof the store fully an'
hour before the' proprietor discovered
his loss. ,
