It Will Be Among the First Measures to Come Before Congress New Tork, Nov. 19. One of the first or ders to be considered when congress con venes, says a Tribune dispatch from Washington, will be the oleomargarine bill, reported to the house from the com mittee on agriculture by Mr. Henry of Connecticut. It was introduced by Mr. George Grout, of Vermont, in December, ISSia. It provides that all articles known as oleomargarine, buttering, imitation but ter, or imitation cheese or a.ny substance In the semblance of butter or cheese not the usual product of the diary and not made exclusively of pure and unadulter ated milk or cream, transported into anv state or territory, and remaining therein for use, consumption, sale or storage therein, shall, upon the arrival within the limits of such state or territory, be subject to the operation and effect of the laws of such state or territorv enacted in the exercise of its police powers, to the same extent and in the same manner a3 though such articles or substances had been produced in such state or territorv, and shall not be exempt therefrom by reason of being introduced therein in orig inal packages or otherwise. There Is a provision "that nothing In this act shall be construed to permit any state to forbid the manufacture or snle of oleomargarine in a separate and dis tinct form and in such manner as will advise the consumer of its real character, free from coloration or Ingredient that causes it to look like butter." In the second section it is provided that the tax upon oleomargarine as prescribed in section S of the act of August 2. liS. shall be one-fourth of one cent a pound w fieri me same is not colored, out when colored in imitation of butter the tax to oe paia Dy the manutacturer shall be 10 cents a pound, to be levied and collected in accordance with the provisions of said act. The committee in their report that that toe people nave ample cause lor alarm at the tremendous illegal growth of the oleomargarine traffic in this emmtrv in the last- few years, which now appears to nave reacnea proportions Devond the power of the states to successfully regu late or control, and the nresenf federal laws are apparently altogether inadequate tor me emergency. The members of the committee accord ingly recommend the Grout bill, as offer ing the best practical solution of the dif ficulty. This subject has attracted attention for a good many years, the dairy interests contending that the act of ls.v did not go far enough, and the oleomargarine manu facturers and dealers, that it afforded suf ficient protection. LI KE OUR WHISKY. .Germans Are Becoming: Extensive Purchasers of "Booze." New Tork, Nov. 19. A special to the World from Washington says: Germany is rapidly becoming a na tion of whisky drinkers, according to the report of Commissioner of Internal Rev enue Wilson. More distilled spirits are exported from this country to Germany than to any other foreign country. The Germans, apparently, are partial to Bourbon whisky, it being preferred to rye. For the year ending June 30, 1900. 411,489 gallons of Bourbon and 137,573 gallons of rye whisky were sent to the German empire. Africa buys more rum from the Uni ted States and leads the list in the ex portation of that article, having been supplied with 3S7.769 gallons. England ranks next in the consumption of Amer ican rum, with S03.534 gallons. Very little whisky distilled in the Uni ted States is sent to England. The re port shows that the subjects of the queen bought only 7s7 gallons of Bourbon and 2.822 of rye. The only countries which did not buy any American whisky were Japan, Spain and Venezuela. The Philippine islands are beginning to use the American product, as 11.264 gallons of Bourbon and 3.822 gallons of rye were shipped there during the last fiscal year, Japan, Canada, Central America.Mex Ico and China were the largest users of alcohol. OFFICERS PROTEST. Claim Frequent Changes in Naval Circles Impair Service. New Tork, Nov. 19. According to a special dispatch from Washington to the Herald, strong protests have been made to the navy department by the commanders in chief of American squad rons agairst frequent changes in offi cers an-J crews which have occurred 4n vessels under their command. Rear Admiral P.emey, commanding the Asiatic station, declares that "frequent changes of officers and crews have mili tated against the efficiency of the fleet to a serious extent, but every effort is now made to reduce these to tha mini mum of necessity." Rear Admiral Farquhar, commander-in-chief of :fe North Atlantic station, reports that "it Is painfully evident that frequent changes in the roster of both officers and crews of cruising vessels tends to lower their efficiency and n orale. In view of the deficiencv in the rurr.bera of commissioned officers and j the frequent changes made necessary j thereby, it is especially desirable that I at least- the chief ano firt plnu rtrv ! officers should be detailed for and Te main on board of the same ship for a full cruise whenever such cart be done." It has been decided that Rear Admiral Kautz shall remain in command of the Pacific squadron until he retires, In Feb ruary. When he hauls down hia flag Rear Admiral Casey will assume com mand. KITCHENER'S METHODS. Uncle Sam to Fight Filipinos Like English Do Boers. New Tork, Nov. 19. Forbearance has ceased to be a military virtue in the Philippines, according to news that comes from the war department. So says a Washington dispatch to the Her ald. Lord Kitchener's plan, of operations in South Africa, harsh though it appears to be. appeals to officials ot the war de partment, and during the coming cam paign in the Philippines no mercy is to be extended to those in active rebellion or who give aid and comfort to the in surgents. The administration, according to a high official, has become weary cf the long drawn out war. It has been con ciliatory in dealing with the insurgents, and thtf efforts to accomplish peace by this means have met with contempt. It is now ; r.' .cs,-1 to give them a taate of real war, end. though the innocent may suffer, it ;s only by this means, it is believed that the guilty can be reached. When Secretary Root returns to Wash ington final instructions will be cabled to Major General MacArthur relative to the operations to be conducted. There is reason to believe that General MacArthur contemplates devoting his principal attention at first to the north ern part of Luion. Aguinaldo is believed to be in the mountains of Benguet.

"filke5 Thompson's Resort Yields Rich Fruit. Twenty Men Caught at Gambling Tables. the WALKED BIGHT IN. The Police Climbed Into a Hall Window. Doors of the Rooms Were Stand ing Open. The police raided two gambling houses shortly after midnight Saturday and be sides the keepers they arrested 23 men who were frequenting the places. The gambling houses raided, "Mike" Thomp son's place at 712 Kansas avenue in the rooms lately occupied by the Pop ulist state headquarters, and Harvey Wheeler's place over E18 North Kansaa avenue. The first place raided was that of Wheeler on the North side. Chief Stahl, Sergeant Donovan and Officers Boyles, Hall and Carpenter made the raid. They ti'j iiouuic . fet-.-.ea ..... - as the door was not locked. The only game In progress was craps and besides the man Wheeler who was running the game, the police arrested Roy McGrew. H. Elliott and Frank Jordan, who were playing the game. They found two dol lars in cash on the table. The big haul was made at Thompson's place. The police put a ladder up to t'ni widow in the alley and walked through the hall into the room. The door was not locked and when the police walked in the games were all going full blast. The roulette table, the poker table and the crap table were doing a good busi ness when the players saw the police en ter. They at once grabbed the money that was in sight so the officers only got 30 cents in cash. The officers participating in this raid were: Chief Stahl, Officers Carpenter, Ring, Bernard and C. A. Smith. The men arrested gave their names as fol lows: Mike Thompson. Amos Atkinson, Sill Carson. J. H. Wilson, J. F. Wilson, John Clark, H. Nichols. J. J. Thomas, Ben Reeson, Frank Elmore, L. Norris, B. Brown, J. Sheldon, Frank Nelson, J. Wright, P. Jackson, William Simmons. C. Bass, C. Graves, J. Henderson, K. Watson, and G. R. Burk. All of the men arrested in the gamb ling rooms put up a cash bond of $10 each and the keepers put up a cash bond of $30. The tables and other parapher nalia captured were taken to the police station except the crap table in Thomp son's place which was too heavy to move. The police had no warrants and would have been unable to get Into the places had the doors been looked. Since the search and seizure ordinance has been declared void, the jointiats and gamb ling house keepers have become careless and have left their doors open. It is like ly that they will now drop back to their old method of having a doorkeeper who will peek through a hole to Investigate the men who desire to enter. The cases of all the men arrested have been set for this afternoon, but the trial will probably be postponed as their at torney, Otis Hungate, is busy in the dis trict court. ELECTION A FARCE. Only Republicans Appeared ai the Polls in Porto Rico. Correspondence of Associated Press. San Juan, Porto Rico. Nov. 12. The Porto Rico elections, as already an nounced by cable, passed off without the riots and disturbances predicted. There were but one or two trivial rows on elec tion day. The days following, when Re publicans were celebrating the victory, in, federal towns, there were a few clashes between parties, and a few men were killed and much ammunition was wasted. But aa a whole, Porto Rico may go down on record as conducting a re markably quiet election, considering that it was the first time her people had voted without the presence of soldiers and police at the polls. In round numbers the total vote on the island was 53,000. Only 150 federal votes were counted. The leaders of the Fed eral party had ordered their followers not to appear at the polls and the order was generally obeyed. It was an elec tion in name merely as one party only voted. As the result Mr. Federico De Getan will be sent to Washington as commissioner to congress and the thirty-five members of the house of dele- Wficn iht nair Fails accompanied by mucous patches in the month, erup tions on the 6kin, sore throat, copper colored splotches.

THE S:FT SPECIFIC CO. ATLANTA, Up rv ) i i i i J if i-rS gates are all Republicans. In fact the entira legislative assembly is now of one party. Each of the seven districts cf the island sends five delegates to the house. Mr. DeGetan is well known on the Is land and abroad. He is an author, scien tist, lawyer and politician. He has pub lished several novels and scientific works in French and Spanish, but his com mand of the Knglish language is limited. He is a lawyer and a graduate rf the Central university of Madrid. He was always a Republican under the mon archy. Since 12 he has takpn part in the principal happenings of his country, in Madrid as well as in Porto Rico and was one cf the four commisRioncrs sent in ISSmJ to ask Spain for autonomy. He refused to enter into the "compact" with Sagasta. The district of Ponce then elected him a deputy to the Cortes In 1S9S. General Henry appointed him sec retary of the Interior. There is a great deal of speculation as to what the federal party here in tends to do. Had they voted, the elec tion, it Is asserted, would have been very close, as a year ago they carried the island with a majority of 6.000 votes. For reasons not generally understood they refrained from voting. They claimed that they had not a fair chance to register, that the Republican party was favored in the appointment of election Judges: that they were re fused registration and that the districts were gerrymandered. Those in touch with the party leaders believe that an attempt may be made in the courts to nullify the election on the ground that it was not a legal conte-st. Now that the elections are over, the people are beginning to lok for im provements. It was announced recently that a five-story building would be built on one of the most important business streets in the city; a New urk cap italist on the ground with plans to build a 2G0-room hotel, and promoters and men with capital behind thm are knock ing at the door of the executive council asking for franchises to build electric railways, to control water power rights, and to erect docks and wharves. Only one franchise of any importance has been issued so far. The company secur ing this franchise is to build a network of electric roads through the coffa and sugar districts to the porta COMING DRAMATIC EVENTS. "Zaza" with Mabel Hall In the title role will be at the Crawford tonight in the hands of Charles Frohman's com pany. In the first act of "Zaia" one gts a glimpse of the seamy side of lite as it may be viewed in one of the lower music halls that skirt the suburbs of Paris. Yet the incidents to this act are but Inciden tal to the larger theme, and quite essen tial to the drama's higher teaching. There Is nothing In "Zaza" that can tend to pervert our Ideas of right liv ing. In fact, it has been called by one of the best litterateurs of the day. "The epitome of morality." In that It has shown us how the Tightness of human nature may b redeemed by the power of sincere love. These few words hold the key to the entire work;love Is human and love Is right, and no matter how far t one poor woman strayed from the path of rectitude. It may be through this vry love that she is to be regenerated. This savine grace is the vital thme of "Za za" as a play; and that L is not built upon a mistaken or perverted notion of moral fitness is proved from th- fact that from the first act to the last, there is not a moment when Zaza does not hold the full sympathy of her hearers; and there is not a woman who views her wrongs and sufferings with which she pays for them, whi would not. if the character were called into question, rise warmly in her defense. Bandmaster Innes Is producing on his present tour his latest composition en titled "Prince Charming." a two-step march which is said to be In the hap piest vein of this most delightful writer, j The piece Is said to be nightly received ! with unusual favor by the audiences at tending Innes' performances and It promises to achieve such a popularity as promises to reinstate th two step march once more Into the public favor. Innes is said to have modelled the march largely on well known "Love is King" which ha3 received the doubtful honor of being ground out or, every barrel organ in the United States.
