Washington, March 2.— \3; ‘
today to give for the firat sis me the . e
tails of the preparations whichsth
War department is making Wé n in:
vagsion of China. In case of necessity,
which to military minds seems: inimi
nent, it is the intention of the'govern
ment to dispatchi 20,000 regulars from
the United States to join a Philippine
force of 5,000 men for an expedition to
the Chinese empire. el
The troops for the Oriental service
have been selected, the posts Jrom
‘which they will be taken are named
in the plans and the proper allotmisnl
has been made among the y&EignS
branches of tha gervice. Nat _oniyhas
this been done by the officers whothve
been working out the invasion schemies
but they have perfected a plan fors
distribntion of the troops which will
remain in the United BStates, SO Ehat
they may be available in case of HoiNe
disturbances. B
The scheme of invasion as at présent
contemplated is with the view pringl=
pally of a combination of the Ames
can forces with those of other ‘
but a subsidiary arrangement hs "; n
made to meet the possibility that the
United States will be foreed to' act
alone; : Tz
If the situation in China demsnds
the dispatching of American ufij X
for a march to Pekin, within thrée
weeks of the time of the call to arms
‘there will not be a regular infantryman
left within the borders of the United
States, for it is the intention of the
department to send its full force {
the field, save only the infantrymen
doing duty in the Philippines. = =
As stated in previous dispatches, the
officers of the War College ba,v_g‘,'b
matel that 100,000 men will ke neces:
sary to make an invading force strong
enough to condnet a successful
paign against Pekin. If by an nnfor
tunate trend of events it sh
necessary that America act alone, there:
would be no attempt at the outset to
reach the Forbidden City. Tentative
plans, in case America goes alone into
the fight, contemplate a joint army and
navy expedition to seize-one of the
greater coast towns in China. This
might or might not have sn effect on
the Chinese government, CATSE
of recent events, it would seem 'that
the Chinese governments is mot all
powerful in the control of it irs,
#ad a 8 a consequence such. s seizu re |
might be of little avail, save possibly
for indemnity purposes.. . .l e
]Cortelyou Recommends an Increase
When Routes are Adjusted.
‘ Washington, March 2.—This state
‘ment has been furnished the Associated
Press tor transmission:
~ “In the matter of rural carriers’ pay,
it can be authoritatively stated that
there is no dispoeition on the part of
the Postoffice department to cut rates.
On the contrary, the department has
strongly recommendced the advisability
of congressional consideration of the
subject, looking to more adequate com
pensation. ‘
‘‘ln the recent readjustments to com
plete county service, the number of
routes reduced in mileage has exceeded
the number increased. These condi
tions bave resulted in lowering the pay
of the carriers somewhat. Until the
service is completed throughout the
country, the average of carriers’ salaries
based upon present legal allowance will
naturally fluctuate from time to time
as routee are increased or decreased in
length. Under the so-called new rural
policy of the department, out of a total
of 34,938 routes installed up to Febra
ary 1, but 27 had been discontinued.
These discontinuances were mostly due
to readjustments in order to complete
gervice in counties.’’
Continues Present Rates.
Washington, March 2.— President
Roosevelt today issued a proclamation
imposing the rates of duties provided
by section 3of the -Dingley act upon
imports from Germany in retarn for
Germany’s concession of minimum
tariff rates oa United States products.
The articles and rate of duty named in
the president’s préclamation are the
same as those now in force, which
would have been terminated yesterday,
but for the recent action of the German
government in giving this country the
benefit of its minimum tariff.
Report on Female and Child Labor.
Washington, Marzh I,—The house of
committee on labor decided today to
make a favorable report on a bill ap
propriating $300,000 for a compilation
of full statistics by the department of
Commerce and Labor on the condition
of women and child workers through
out the United States. This bill grew
out of the movement inaugurated by
Governor Curtis Guild, of Massachu
setts, for the investigation of labor con

can people and transmitted to Japan
through that organization for relief of
the famine sufferers.

While the treaty was given a place
on the senate legislative calendar by
the report made today, it will not be
called up until after the railroad bill
has been disposed of, and even then it
may go over for some time.
For three hours, lacking three min
utes, today, Foraker held the attention
of the senate while he read a carefully ‘
prepared speech on the railroad rate
question. His speech was a protest
against any general legislation, on the
theory that the existing Elkins law
could be so extended as to make it an
swer all the requirements. He did
not fail, however, to point out what
‘he considered the defects of the
'Hepburn-Dolliver bill, and he made
the declaration more than once that it
woudl fail to remedy the evils com
plained of The speech was listened to
by a large attendance, both on the
floor and in the galleries, and at its
close the senator was warmly congratu
lated by a number of his colleagues.
Tuesday, February 27.
Washignton, Feb. 27. — The senate
today agreed to vote on the statehood
bill before adjournment on Friday,
March 9. The proposition was made
by Beveridge, and there was little diffi
culty in reaching an understanding.
The suggestion immediately followed a
speech in support of the bill by Hop
kine, during the course of which Hale
suggested that the territories were not
prepared for statehood, and suggested
that their admission be deferred.
The remainder of the day was devot
ed to the discussion of the bill previd
ing for the settlement of the affairs of
the Five Civilized Tribes of Indians,
the major portion of the time beingi
given to the provision for the disposal
of the coal lands in Indian Territory. ‘
Washington, Feb. 27.—M ilitary mat

under consideration for amendment.

Arthur might become lieutenant gen

Smeot_Makes an Enemy,
Washington, Feb. 27. — When the
senate takes a vote on the Smoot case,
it is guite likely that Senator Heyburn,
of Idaho, will vote to unseat Mr.
Smoot, notwithstanding it has always
been understood that Mr. Heyburn was
& Mormon sympathizer in his 6wn
state, and was elected by Mormon
votes in the Idaho legislature. Be
hind this apparent change of front on
the part of Senator Heyburn lies an
interedting story that developed during
the course of his now famous speech
against Roosevelt’s lorest reserve policy. |
ra‘sed by Grosvenor, of Ohio, who sub
stituted an amendment to abolish the
grade after these officers had been pro
moted, but this, too, met defeat. Mem
bers of the appropriations committee
disputed the right of the military com
mittee to appropriate for an apparatus
for fire control of field artillery, but
without success. Only eight of the 50
pages of the bill were passed upon
when the house adjourned.
Monday, February 26.
Washington, Feb. 26.—The death of
ex-Speaker David B. Henderson was
the subject of appropriate action in the
house of representatives todar, when,
after the transaction of less than a
day’s business, resolutions of regret
and esteem were adopted and adjourn
ment taken as a further mark of respect
to his memory. Several bills relating
to the District of Columbia were
,paased, incorporating the Lake Erie &
{Ohio River SBhip Canal company. The
'bill will be put on its passage the first
thing tomorrow.
Daring the consideration of district
legislation, Sims, of Tennessee, made a
severe arraignment of the form of the
District. It was un-American, un
republican and un-democratic.
A bill was passed giving a national
charter to the National Society of Sons
of the American Revolution.
Washington, Feb. 26.—The Hapburn
railroad rate bill was reported to the
senate today by Tillman, in accord
ance with the action of the senate com
mittee on interstate commerce last
Friday. Large crowds assembled in
the galleries, anticipating a field day
of debate, but were disappointed.
There was little of interest in the pro
ceedings regarding the bill. A brief
statement from Tillman with the neces--
sary arrangement for printing the re
port of the hearings before the commit
tee and a promise that a formal report
would be made later, was followed by a
few remarks trom Aldrich, showing the
position of the five Republicans who
opposed the bill as reported. Aldrich
indicated that there would be no un
‘necessary delay, but that the bill would
be discussed in accordance with its im

Frieay, February 23.
Washington, Feb. 23. — Precaded by
a debate which indicated no hesitancy,
but rather a relish, in taking action
against alleged railroad combinations,
the house agreed without opposition
today to the Tillman-Gillespie resolu
tion, directing the Interstate Commerce
commission to make an immediate in
quiry and report regarding alleged re
straints of trade on the part of certain
railroads in the handling of coal and
oil. The resolution was not in the
form in which it passed the senate, and
will go back to that body for its second
Proceeding under call of committee,
boills were passed to require $76 worth
of work annually on mining claims and
$5 worth of work on roads and traile
for each mining claim in Alaska; allow

when the countries to which they belong
recognize American certificates of in
spection; to prevent foreign built
dredges from operating in the United
States, except the dredges now at work
in the United States under contract.
~ Washington, Feb. 23. —By a vote of
3 to 5 the senate committee on inter
state commerce today agreed to report
the Hepburn railroad rate bill without
amendment, but the resolution re
gerved to the members of the commit
tee freedom of action concerning
amendments offered in the senate. By
a vote of 5 to 3, Republicans prevail
ing, Tillman, a Democrat, was given
the honor of reporting the hill. This
establishes a precedent, in that a Re
publican senate committee has given
to a Democrat control of an important |
measure passed by a Republican houee‘
and endorsed by a Republican presi- ‘

Harrison Returns From Panama and
Praises Canal Officials.
New York, Fbe. 28.—Ex-Congrses
man Francis Burton Harrison returned
to New York yesterday after a trip of
six weeks through Central America.
One week of that time he spent in in
vestigating the work of digging the
Panama canal. He is convinced, he
says, that the administration ought to
be upheld in its task. Mr. Harrison
found that, although a Democrat, the
officials engaged in the canal work were
eager to inform him about it. They
seemed to have nothing to conceal, and
they had work there, he said, to show
for their effortse. He found esprit de
corps among the higher officials, and
he continued:
““Mr. Stevens is working to establish
it all along the line. With the minor
officials, who are appointed by the civil
service, there is little of the spirit e
cessary for the right kind of work.
They seem to fear that Washington will
change the plans and change jobs. I
think that the canal comm ssionera
should be there on the ground. It
would help a vast deal. Not all of
them would be necessary—two or three
might do. More work would be ac
Mr. Harrison was asked if he ap
proved of the plang for the building of
the canal.
“I think it would be folly,”” he re
plied, ‘‘to array any party against
such a work. Criticism might be all
right, but not as partisan criticism.
‘I believe the canal is being dug
honestly, efficiently, and with earnest
ness and intelligence. Any observant
traveler could offer minor criticism as
to what has been done and what is
being left undone, but we are not deal
ing with trivialities there, nor is the
canal commission to be held account
able like the house committee of a so
cial club. We are building a great
canal, and it is going to be built.”

be invited to attend and participate.
Whole Population Hostile, Encouraged
by Viceroy of Canton.
Manila, Feb. 28.—A leading Ameri
can fi4h in this city has received the
following cable from Canton:
‘“The boycott has greatly encouraged
the anti-foreign feeling. Teachers, re
formers, agitators and the native news
papers now have the power of that as
sociation behind them, causing a re
markable growth in the reform party
and secet societies, while the anti-for
eign, anti-dynastic viceroy of Canton,
by his autocratic ruling and his antag
onistic attitude to the foreign consuls,
encourages the masses of the people in
their anti-foreign feeling.

New York, Feb. 28.—The Mutnal
Reserve Life Insurance company gave
out a statement today relative to the
withdrawal of the company from the
state of Missouri. The withdrawal fol
lowed a discugsion as to an examination
of the company by Missouri examiners
at the expense of the company. The
Mutual Reserve objected to the expense
in prospect, holding that it was exces
give and illegal. The company’s esti
mate of the minimum cost of the exam
ination is $B,OOO, while the superine
