Is the Senate on Monday Mr. Camer
on introduced a joint resolution relative
to the termination of the war in Cuba
After a preamble quoting the president's
last annual message, in reference to that
subject, the joint resolution provides:
"That as it appears there are no means
of securing peace in Cuba except by the
recognition of its rights to self govern
ment, the good ollicee of the United
Stat?s are earnestly recommended to the
favorable consideration of the Spanish
government for the recognition of the
independence of Cu.a." The resolution
was read a first and second time, and
laid on the table for the present.

thereby the public gratitude. But he

be made, as usual. Mr. Morton, as a
simple fraud, stated that he had paid

Senator Ql'ay, after a great deal of
Of political figuring and parliamentary
log lolling, was under the recent reor
ganization of the senate made a member
of the committee on appropriations. In
order to secure this coveted place he was
obliged to give up the ambitions else
where. On Friday he learned that the
appropriations committee was. about to
be shorn of its powers and the money
bills distributed among the various com
mittees, whereupon the senator very
eameatly expressed to his colleagues the
belief that he had been buncoed.
If he had known the change was to
take place, he said, he would not have
given up the substance for a shadow.
It is the first time in his public life that
senator Quay is known to have done
The records and reports of the De
partment of Agriculture show that dur
ing the year 1 j3 there were 030 distinct
brands of commercial fertilizers licensed
for sale in this state, and that the li
cense fee amounted to more than tl2,
tX0, ail of which is available for analyses
of the samples and the enforcement of
the law. Tue prices range from 9.75
per ton to f 45 per ton. The rigid en
forcement of the law has done much to
give Pennsylvania fertilizers the reputa
tion they now enjoy, and Secretary Edge
states that consumers in no other Btate
in the Union are better protected than
are the farmers of Pennsylvania, and
thut Pennsylvania farmers have the Liesi
fertilizers for the prices asked them of
any state in the United States.
During the last 25 years the consump
tion of fertilizers in this state has in
creased from 50,000 tons in 1S70 to not
Jess than 135,000 tons in 1S-J5.
There have been few greater farces,
says the Harrisburg Patriot, than the ap
pointment of a Pennsylvania senatorial
committee to smell out lawbreakiug
after the manner of the famous and re
sultless Iexow committee of New York.
The appointment of the Pennsylvania
committee was a piece of buoconilie
which scared its projectors more than
anybody else, and which would never
have leen allowed to do anything had
not the people of Philadelphia got be
yond control.
The committee went about its work
very gingerly, seeming to be afraid it
would make some startling discoveries
Beginning with the street cleaniug de
partment of Philadelphia it heard the
testimony it chose to hear with large
gaps between each hearing as if to give
culprits an opportunity to make them
selves scarce. The committee proceeded
with the greatest circumspection in this
department of its investigation and then
took up the police department. It had
discovered corruption in the street clean
ing bureau and it discovered undoubted
evidence of criminality in the police de
partment with the certainty that worse
could be found. Then it went to Pitts
burg, where it opeued an investigation
with a great llourish of trumpets, but
remained only one day principally be
cause Chris. Magee threatened to put
one of the investigators in juil if the
visit be extended. Now the committee
is doing nothing, has done nothing for
some time and wid perhaps do nothing,
as Quay is said to be sick of the investi
gation. There is no doubt he is sick of it.
Investigations can work two ways and
Quay and the members of his commit
tee are not impregnable. There are
monstrous instances of corruption in
Philadelphia which should tie punished
and which the people of that city want
punished. The same condition prevails
in Piitsburg. Then why is Quay sick of
the investigation? Perhaps because
Magee and Martin know him and know
the members of the committee and Quay
and the committee know those two
gentlemen know them. Everybody
knows too that among the committee
men is one of the most corrupt politi
cians in the state. That's why the in
vestigation has been discontinued so
Besides, Quay cannot control the
Pennsylvania delegation to the national
convention with Philadelphia and Alle
gheny county against him. He needs
one, probably both. And the control
of the delegation is of more consequence
just now than "reform."
Is his speech in the senate on the
Monroe doctrine, Senator Smith, of
New Jersey, made a statement which has
no bearing at all on the subtect of his
address, but which will be heartily ap
proved nevertheless. "The great ma
jority of ieople throughout the coun
try," he said, "are disgusted with con
gress in general and the senate in par
ticular. The most popular thing we
could do to-day, and probably the most
beneficial thing, would be to pass the
necessary appropriation bills and go
home. The mere fact that we are in
session is a menace to the revival of
business and the return of prosperity."
A profounder truth has not been uttered
since the present congress began its er
ratic performances, early in December.
Not a bill has been passed for the pub
lie welfare, and uo sincere effort has
been made to pass one. The house
passed a bond bill which was not desired
and a tariff bill which was simply the
first step toward restoring the high tariff
laws repudiated nearly four years ago.
The Republican majority in the senate
has bargained with populists and given
the 6ilver men possession of the finance
committee. The senate has also passed
a free coinage bill, and with the excep
tion of .uniting with the house to de
press business by jingo talk and threats
of war, has done nothing else. Senator
Smith understands the situation fully
The people are disgusted with congress
and would welcome its adjournment.
Is responce to a senate resolution,
Secretary Olney says he is not advised
officially of any attempt of Great Britain
or Canada to establish any post route
over United States territory in Alaska,
and the only instance having a remote
relation to the subject was the request
made to the Untied States authorities,
and which was granted, that twenty
Canadian mounted policemen be allowed
to pass through Seattle, Wash., and St.
Michael's Alaska, on their way to Cana
dian territory in Alaska. Secretary
Olney says in conclusion: "The De
partment of State is not officially pos
sessed of any diplomatic correspondence
or other information respecting any at
tempt of Great Britain or the Iominion
of Canada to assert any claims to the
territory of the United States in Alaska,
either by occupation or attempt to oc
cupy such territory or otherwise."
Brigadier General John- Gibhon- died
in Baltimore on Thursday in the 70th
year of his age. He was a Pennsylvan
ian and was born at Holmesburg. He
was a graduate of West Point and served
with distinction in the Mexican war
and commanded a brigade through the
northern Virginia, Maryland, Rappa-
nannock and Pennsylvania campaigns
in 18G2 and 1SG3, promoted to major
general of the volunteers in 1SG4 and
commanded the Twenty-fourth corps
in the assaults before Petersburg. From
1SG9 to 18S6 he was in many campaigns
against the Indians.
The prevalence of forest fires in Penn
sylvania is shown by the report of Dr.
ivothrock, state forestry commissioner.
During 1895 only three counti in
Pennsylvania Philadelphia, Delaware
and Lawrence were exempt: and 225 -
000 acres of woodland were burned over,
with a resulting loss estimated at 1,000,
000. This loss is not only immediate,
but continuing. The fires that kill the
standing Umber also lay waste the hill
sides and dry up the 8trerus.
Washington Letter.
Washington, D. C, Feb., S, 1S9G.
Democratic senators are proving the
truth of the adage, that "there are more
ways to kill a dog than by hanging," ty
forgetting, or at leiv-t laying asidi: their
financial differences, and working to
gether for the purpose of killing the
hou.-e tariff bill; and, whether thev suc
ceed or not, they have already frighten
ed the Republicans. They have suc
ceeded, aided by the vote of Senator
Jones, of Nevada, in getting a fret: coin
age substitute for the house tanff bill
reported from the finance committe, and
that is the weapon they inteud to use to
thump the life out of the tariff bill.
Upon a direct vote of the seuat it would
require the combined vote of all the
Democrats and Populists to have a ma
jority of one over the 44 Republicans,
who are appearantly united in defense
of the tariff bill, and it isdoubtful if the
votes of all the Populists can be had
against the tariff bill. But there are
other ways to accomplish legislative euds
besides direct votes, and the Democratic
side of the senate is especially strong in
skilled parliamentarians
To say that President Cleveland and
Secretary Carlisle were pleased to know
that the proposed issue of bonds was
over subscribed to the extent of about
$400,000,000 is a very mild way of sta
ing how those gentlemen felt when the
bids had all been opened and tabulated
Of course they as well as everybody else
realize that this bond issuing business is
thoroughly bad, but so long as Republi
can laws make it necessary to do so, it is
naturally gratifying to all members of
the administration to know that so many
people are willing and ready to invest
their money in them. It iudicates a
faith in national finances that cannot
but have a good effect in business circles
throughout the country.
The selection of Hon. Edwin F. Uhl,
now assistant secretary of state, to le
ambassador to Germany, appears to have
given general satisfaction to Democrats
in congress. Mr. Uhl has made a splen
did record in the state department.
Publicly the Republican's pretend to
believe that Mr. Harrison's letter entire
ly removes him from the contest for the
Republican presidential nomination.
This is especially true of the supporters
of other candidates, who are rather over
doing the thing in their anxiety to con
vince the Harrison people that their man
is out for good and all. But privately
nine Republicans out of ten will admit
that they consider the letter alisolutely
meaningless, and that it leaves Mr. Har
rison just where he was before it was
written. Weeks ago it was given out by
Mr. Harrison's friends that his name
would not be formally presented to the
convention by the Indiana delegation,
but might lie sprung upon the co lven
tion if there was auything like a dead
lock, in the interest of party harmony.
Mr. Harrison's- letter confirms the first
part of that statement, aud says nothing
else. In short, Mr. Harrison's letter is
thought to mean merely 'hat he declines
to enter the general scramble, when the
chanctq would tie against his winning;
but he is just as willing to tie the candi
date as ever.
The fight made on the appropriations)
for the Catholic charitable institutions
in Washington, in the house this week,
may not have been of itself a thing of
national importance, but it will lie heard
from, inasmuch as it brought out the
fact that many Republican members of
the house were, while claiming to lie
fighting sectarianism, in reality merely
acting as agents for the A. P. A. They
got so mixed up that they defeated the
District of Columbia appropriation bill;
the first time such a thing ever happened
in the house. The vote was afterward
reconsidered aud the bill seut back to
Col. William R. Morrison brands as
fabribatious those 6tories sent out from
Chicago, as to what he iutended to do
to control the finaucial opinions of the
Illiuois delegation to the national con
vention. He said: "I have seen the
dispatches from Chicago, and I will say
in reply that I have have sent uo mes
sages to the Democracy of Illiuois; by
anyone whomsoever. Ihls answers all
the assertions and is as good as a whole
column of denial."
Ex-Co; gressman Hendricks, of New
York, who was in Washington this week,
said when asked what he thought of the
condition of the Democratic party:
"Oh, Democracy is all right; that is to
say, its cardinal principles are correct
and sure-to endure. The root of the
tree is alive and healthy, but some ex
crescences have developed in the top
that need lopping off. 1 have no doubt
that the party will get back into the old
conservative channels in the course of
The house will, of course, sustain the
report of the Ways and Means commit
tee, that the house do not concur in the
free coinage substitute for the house
bond bill, which was last week passed bv
the senate. Then there will le a con
ference, the members of which may be
looked upon as morners, as both meas
ures will die on their hands.
A substitute for the first Cuban reso
lution has been reported from the senate

Hreat Coal Pool.
Philadelphia. February 12 A spec

(jmph says: A movement to form a
great pool of the bituminous coal is now
underway. If the pool becomes an
actuality it will govern production in
prices. Prices will lie advanced, and
the marketing of all bituminous coal
will be placed in the hands of a selling
ageucy. whose head quarters will proba

looking to the formation of the pool
has so far been done in Philadelphia.
There have already lieen meetings of
mine owners and operators, and another
meeting will be held in Philadelphia,
probably the latter part of next week
The new pool will le made up, not of

St Joseph, Mo.. Feb. 9. The most
successful and daring bank roblieiy that
has occurred in Western! Missouri for a
quarter of a century took place at Sa
vannah early yesterday morning, a
small town fifteen miles northeast of this
city. Three cracksmen wrecked the safe
of the state bank, of Savannah, securing
$25,000 in money, government bonds
and postage stamj.
Night Watchman Jake Garting saw
three men working at the front door of
the bank. He asked them what they I
were doing. One of the robbers, with
out replying, knocked Garting down,
carried him into the lobby of the bank
and then bound and blindfolded him.
He then stood guard over Garting with a
cocked pistol, while the remaining two
robbers drilled a hole in the safe, which
was an old fishioned affair and succeed
ed in unloc king it from the outside. In
the morning Bank President William R.
Wells found Garting iu the condition
destribed. In the meantime the robbers,
to whom there is no clue, had plenty of
time to escape.
Mrs. Mary Bnckenridge lost 14, 000
iu governmeut bonds of which the cou
pons for January had not been clipped.
The postmaster lost $275 in stamps and
$250 in money. Other local depositors
lost $10,000. For twenty-five years Mrs
Breckenridge had kept these bonds in
her house. They had been deposited in
the bank less than a. week.
Indians Vilt Hastings.
Harrisburg, Feb. 10. Among the
callers ou Governor Hastings to-day were
Andrew John and March Pearce, Se
neca Indians, one from Southern New
York and the other from Warren coun
ty, this state. Pearce is a grandson of
Corn planter, the Seneca chief, and is a
cousin of Solomon Obail, who came to
the legislature with Andrew John last
winter with a request that legis'ation be
enacted restoring to Cornplanter's de
scendants all of the land upon which Oil
City now stands. The general assembly
appointed a committee which investi
gated the matter and reported that there
was no ground for action.
The Indians brought with them to-day
important letters and papers the exis
tence of which were unknown last win
ter, but which have been in Pearce's
possession for a long time. They com
prise the original treaty betweeen the
Senecas and the commonwealth of
Pennsylvania and the original survey
and grant of the land claimed, together
with a copy of the map and other im
portant documentary evidence. The
governor referred the Indians to Chief
Clerk Uearhart, of the state department,
who will lay the matter before Secretary
of the Commonwt alth Reeder.
o .Money in Armor Plate.
Washington, D. C. Feb. 9 Before
the Senate Naval committee, on Satur
day, Andrew Carnegie of the Carnegie
Steel company, and Joseph Wartoa of
of the South Bethlehem Iron company,
appeared in ojiositiou to the Smith res
olution providing for the establishment
by the governmeut of an armor plate
These two gentlemen, it is understood,
made practically similarstatements as to
the cost of the plant, both estimating
that it would amount to more than $1 -000,0110.
This was the cost of their respective
plants. Neither company made an ex
cessive profit on the present average
price of the armor plate paid by the
government $500 a too. The plant
was exjiensive, the cost of material high,
aud the danger of rejection by the gov
ernment made more than a reasonable
profit on this rate impossible.
In the case of foreign contracts, which
both firms have secured, they stated no
profit whatever was beiug made, the
contracts having lieen secured simply for
the purjiose of introducing American
material abroad.

Philadelphia, Feb. 8. Mrs. Rose
Gearhart, the young woman who, while
suffering from the pangs of hunger,
sought relief by killing her child and
attempting to commit suicide July 11 of
last year, was taken before Judge Yerkes
to-day: She pleaded guilty to murder
in the second degree.
District Attorney Graham declined to
call aDy witnesses, except the female
physician at the county prison, who
touchingly told the story of the young
woman's wrong. She spoke of her mar
riage to a man who was afterwards found
to lie married and of her grief and pri
vation after the discovery was made.
The district attorney asked the judge to
hold the case under advisement so that
it might be presented to the lioard of

When he revived he said he had been

an express package containing $110.
Clinton Raab was arrested on suspicion.
To day Specher confessed that he had
not lieen robbed, explaining that he was
