Congress ad Jo.imcd sine die at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon. For the senate- it was a Jay of nailing. The naval appropria tion (.ill the stumbling block to final adjournment cou'd not be agreed to by the conferees of the two houses, and tr.e disagreement was reported to the senate early In the day. The report as accepted by the senate, which re fused to request another conference, although Mr.- Hale expressed the belief that an agreement might be reached. At ?, o'clock, after several recesses had t-en taken it became known to the sen ate that th? house had concurred in. the senate amrdnvnt remaining in con troversy, and F'.n afterward the house resolution providing for final adjourn ment was pa?s'd. an amendment fixing the b'Mjr at 5 o'clock. June 7. It was not until 4:1) o'clock, twenty minutes before the h.iur fixed for ad-j'-urnmer.t, that th pr-sident pro tern, j 11? the senate, Mr. Fry-. a:lixed his sig- j nature to the naval bill. j With some other measures it was hur ried to the president, who was in wait- j irs in his nwm at the capitol and was i e lined ty him a few minutes later. I Tie concluding hour f the session was purely a social ses.-ion. No busi- I r.ess L 'Vi n i the udptlni of the cus- torvary resolution of thanks to the j chair (Mr. Frye) was accomplished. ! In a knowiadgnv-nt of the compli- j nv-T.t Mr. Fry d-livered a brief and j graceful speech, which was received j wsth cordial applause throughout the i chamber. j The conclusion of the work of the i seT-.n.te was quiet and perfunctory, at- J teni.-..i hy no exciting scenes, suclj as are often incident to tne close of a , SHORTEST LINE.

IN THE HOUSE Washington, June S.Ia marked con trast with the exciting scenes attend ing the bitter struggles of the closin hours of the session, Speaker Hender son laid down his gavel at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon at the conclusion of one of the most picturesque scenes which has ever occurred in the hall of representatives. During a brief recess taken n-ithin 20 minutes of the time fixed for the final adjournment to give the president an opportunity to affix his signature to the bills that were be ing rushed to him for approval, a group of members, led by Mr. Mercer (Xev.i, Mr. Fail (Tex), Mr. Fitzger ald (Mais.) and Mr. Tawney (Minn.) congregated in the area to the left of the speaker's rostrum and began sing ing patriotic ail's. The galleries were banked to the doors. "Columbia. Gem of the Ocean," "Auld Lang Syne," "The Red, White and Blue." succes sively rang out. As the singing pro ceeded members joined the group until without regard to age or party the en tire membership of the house joined in the chorus. The spectators in the gal leries applauded each song until the strains cf "Dixie" filled the hall. Then their unbounded enthusiasm broke out in wild cheers. But the enthusiasm "Dixie" evoked was not to be compared with the remarkable demonstration wliich followed when, in a clear, ring ing tenor. Mr. Fitzgerald (Mass.) start ed the national anthem with the in spiring words "Through the dawn's eariy light" The principal feature of the closing day in the house was the reversal of its action in turning down the conferees on the naval bill for yielding on the item relating to ocean surveys. Over night the sentiment of the house underwent a complete change and the members voted by a. large majority to accept outright the senate amendment, which goes much further than the compro mise which the conferees offered. The new conferees. led by Mr. Cannon, who ha 1 brought in a compromise which tney conisuered more satisfactory, were itmiminiously pushed aside. It was a distinct victory for the old conferees. Messrs. Foss (111 ), Dawson (W. Va.), and Cummings X. T.). The other fea ture of the closing day was the course of Mr. Lentz (O.) in blocking unani mous consent legislation. For three days he has objected to bills because the majority would, not allow the tes timony in the Coeur d'Alene investiga tion to be printed, and he maintained his position to the end.

A vigorous effort is being made by officials of the Union Fa- cific Railway company to induce Boers to come to this country and settle on the cheap lands owned by the corpora tion along its lines in Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming and other western states. C. E. W antland, one or tne chief land agents of the company, visited Wash ington during the recent stay of the en voys in that city and conferred with thern. it is said, regarding the com pany's colonization scheme. Mr. Wantland, who is of Dutch an cestry, is confident that thousands of the farmers of the Transvaal will come to the United States rather than submit to British rule if the result of the pres ent war favors the latter nation. The railroad company has promised to re fund all railroad fares paid by the Boers from any port in the country to he western lands provided the ticket pur chaser buys 320 acres of land. It is understood that the Boers in the Transvaal will leave there if their in dependence is taken from them and fa vorable offers from this country would be listened to eagerly, according to the Boer envoys. Mr. Wessels, one of the representatives of the South African Republic, said yesterday: "While we believe that the Boers win obtain free dom, or at least partial freedom, within a year or so, if not at once, we are very uncertain as to the future. If anv def inite offer is made to us as the official representatives cf the people in South Africa we shall be glad to lay it before them and give them an- opportunity to aeciae wnetner tney wish, to come to America or not."

The gas has a pres sure of probably 125 pounds, A large corporation was formed to handle it, and immediate steps taken to utilize the now. Indications of coal and oil have been seen In that country for several years, but the discovery of nat ural gas in the Wichita Mountains was a great surprise.

Senator Eater's Friends Are Consequently Aggrieved. Charges Were Preferred by A. E. Greene of Lecompton. The Sixth congressional district Re publicans have been involved for some weeks in a quarrel over Cyrus Ander son, receiver of the United States land office at Colby, an effort being made to have Anderson removed from office. The quarrel has ended by the report of Commissioner Bingham Herman of the general land office, who has sustain ed Anderson and finds that the receiver is not guilty of the charges. The charges were made by A. R. Greene of Lecompton, an examiner for the land offices. A dispatch from Washington tells the following story of the trou ble: "The fight was opened on Anderson by Greene on March 8. In a report to the department he made several charges against the receiver, among others that the receiver was absent from his office without leave, that he permitted his clerk to sign his name to important official documents, that he made fase certificates, and that he was in col lusion with other parties to secure gov ernment land for his own use for a small amount In support of the charges an affidavit of a former clerk in the office, A. L, Rich, was tiled by the in spector. "Receiver Anderson was notified of the charges preferred against him and in reply denied each and every one ex cept the one charging him with absent ing himself from office without leave. He also produced an affidavit from A. L. Rich which placed Inspector Greene in an embarrassing situation. In this affidavit Rich swore that he was in duced by Greene to sign the first affi davit; that he did not know what it contained as he read it over very hur riedly; that in consideration of his signing it Greene and P.egister Will coxson promised to see that he was re instated in the civil service and station ed at New Orleans at $1,200 per year. Rich produced a letter from Wllicoxson in which the latter said that Senator Baker, 'being at the head of the civil service committee, can fix matters O. K., and that he (Willcoxson) 'could always get help from Senator Baker when every one else fails.' "From a Kansan now holding a posi tion here, but n ho keeps in close touch with polities at home, it is asserted that the movement to remove Anderson due to the senatorial squabble in that state. Senator Baker named An derson for receiver of the Colby land office. Anderson is now working for J. R. Burton. Greene also owes his appointment to Senator Baker and, in order to punish Anderson for his in gratitude towards Baker, concluded to have him removed rrom otnee. sut Commissioner Hermann, of the general land office, stood by Anderson. "A supplemental charge was made th.tf Anderson was a hard drinker. To offset this, affidavits w-ere produced to show that Anderson had always been a total abstainer; that he does rot even. know what liquor tastes like, and its hilarious effect is a stranger to him. "In his report to the secretary of the interior, the land commissioner re views all of the evidence submitted in the case at length. "Neglect of duty, habitual careless ness and absence without leave formed the basis of charges 1 and 2. Speak ing of them, the land commissioner says: "The Inspector's specifications of these charges are that the receiver was absent from his office about one-fifth of the time when he should have been there, that he was grossly careless in his handling of important official pa pers, and that he permitted his clerk to sign his name to receipts which he should have signed himself. In sup port of these, the inspector presented the atfidavit or A. l. Kicn. a ion-mer clerk In the office. No other testi mony was adduced. In his affidavit Rich declared that the receiver would absent himself for intervals of three and four days at a time; that he was away fully one-fifth or the time and that, on one occasion, a whole day was spent in searching for a homestead ap plication which tne receiver nan mis- id. This office is now in receipt or an afnnavit trora Air. Kicn iu wmcn he says the Inspector Greene called at his office on Marcn Lo last ana re quested him to make the affidavit, but tiat he declined to do so on that occa sion; that the inspector returned a week later, when he consented to make it, after being urgently requested to do so by th" inspector and Register Willcoxson of the Colby land office, and after they had each given him assur ance of their personal fnendsmp and their promise that they w-ould see that he was reinstated in the civil service and secure for him at any time a clerk- hip at New Orleans at J1.2U0 per an num, and ne runner says mai ne now feels and realizes that he was unduly When the excretory organs fail to Miiiilii ILliCUl ? mal accumulation ot eRete matter wnicn poisons ana ciogs trie oioou, anu v. ucwuk: awm Tbis noison is carried through the eeneral circulation to all parts of the body, and upon reaching the skin surface there is a redness and eruption, and by certain peculiarities we recognize Eczema, Tetter, Acne, Salt Rheum, Psoriasis, Ervsirjelas and many other skin troubles, more or less severe.

The affida vit, he says, was prepared by In spector Greene and he signed it with out reading it carefully. He asked to modify his first sworn, statement so that it w-ould read that Receiver An derson was not absent over four or" five days a month, including the time , lost on account of the severe sickness of the receiver. In the matter of care lessness, he declared that it was stated in an unfair manner and that Mr. An derson was as painstaking as any re ceiver ever was. The records show that the receiver was absent probably fifty days in the twenty-six - months. He admits that he did wrong in ab senting himself without leave, and while he disclaims any attempt to jus tf his acts he says that other officers of his acquaintance had done the same thing. "As to' tW charge of neglect of duty and habitual carelessness it is recalled that Mr. Greene has failed to find or re port any fact" from the records of his office which show that the receiver has faiied to perform his entire duties. The Coiby land office has been inspected four times by Inspector Greene. In his report on August 1. Isito. the inspector said: 'The hooks r,f the receiver are fairly well kept, the officers devote their entire time to their official duties and are capable and deserving men.' "On May 11. 1SW, the inspector 'found the receiver on duty and hard at work. The office was in good shape.' On December 4. the inspector in his re port said: 'The management of the of fice is good, the officers are faithful and capable, and the work is in fine condition in the office.' "In his report on March 8. Inspector Greene says, among other things: 'The business of the office is well in hand, anci the volume is large. Only by the indefa tigable work ot the register has it ben possible to keep up the current work. I disiike exceedingly to except the receiver from this statement, but he is not atten tive to his duties and is derelict in other respects.' But the inspector fails to men tion any fact disclosed by the records of the office which in any way supports this assertion. He neither gives the source of his information nor afterward supports his charges by the testimony of any othr person except Rich, who, in a second affi- davit, discredits his own statements made in the first one. There is nothing in the charge- that the receiver permitted his clerk to sig-n his name to important tesral documents. The clerk only signed his name to unimportant matters, such as is the custom in every office of trust. "As to the fourth charge, that the re- ceiver made false certificates, in that he signed weekly statements of cash in blank for ue during his absence, it can not be sustained The f'fth charge, that the receiver was guilty of collusion with an applicant for the purchase of lands for his own u?" and benefit contrary to law. was also explain ed satisfactorily and dismissed. "In addition to Mr. Anderson's answer, this; office is in receipt of a number of letters from prominent Kansans. includ ing: such state officers as the governor, lieutenant governor, secretary- of stare, auditor and attorney greneral, ten county officers and a number of prominent busi ness and professional men. who tstlfy to the excellence of the receiver's charac ter and reputation, both as a citizen and an officer.
