ORDER JOURNAL NOW 1%. SHIPPING SUBSIDY? -BI LL IS PASSED Senate Puts Stomp of Approval on Measure, but House Has Yet to Act. Washington, Feb. 15.At a few min utea after 6 o'clock yesterday the sen ate cast its final ballot on the subsidy shipping bill, which was passed by vote of 38 to 27. All the votes lor the bill were republican and five re publican senators voted with the dem ocrats in opposition. They were Messrs. Burkett, Dolhver, La Follette, Spooner and Warner. As passed, the bill establishes thir teen new contract mail lines and in creases the subvention to the Oceanic line, running from the Pacific coast to Australasia. Of the thirteen new lines, three leave Atlantic coast ports, one running to Brazil, one to Uruguay and Argentina and one to South Africa six leave ports on the Gulf of Mexico, one going to Brazil, one to Cuba, one to Mexico and three to Central Ameri ca and the isthmus of Panama four clear from Pacific coast ports, two to Japan, China and the Philippines direct, one to Japan, China and the Philippines via Hawaii, and one to Mexico, Central America and the isthmus of Panama. The bill also grants a subvention at the rate of $5 per gross ton per year to cargo vessels engaged in the foreign trade of the United States, and at the rate of $5.50 per ton to vessels engaged in the Philippine trade, the Philippine coastwise law being postponed until 1909. Another feature of the bill creates a naval reserve force of 10,000 officers and men, who are to receive retainers after the British practice. Vessels re ceiving subsidies are required to cairy a certain proportion of naval reserve men among their crews. The aggre gate compensation for mail lines is about $3,000,000 annually. No steam vessels of less than 1,000 tons is to re ceive aid under the bill. England has to import 70,000 Christ mas trees. THE VALUE OF CHARCOAL. Few People Know How Useful It Is in Preserving Health and Beauty. Nearly everybody knows that char coal is the safest and most efficient dis infectant and purifier in nature, but few realize its value when taken into the human system for the same cleans ing purpose. Charcoal is a remedy that the more you take of it the better it is not a drug at all, but simply absorbs the Sae ases and impurities always present in stomach and intestines and carries them out of the system. Charcoal sweetens the breath after smoking, drinking or after eating onions and other odorous vegetables. Charcoal effectually clears and im proves the complexion, it whitens the teeth and further acts as a natural and eminently safe cathartic. It absorbs the injurious gases which collect in the stomach and bowels it disinfects the mouth and throat from the poison of catarrh. All druggists sell charcoal in one form or another, but probably the best char coal and the most for the money is in Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges they are composed of the finest powdered Willow charcoal, and other harmless antiseptics in tablet form, or rather in tne form of large, pleasant tasting lozenges, the charcoal being mixed with honey. The daily use of these lozenges will soon teli in a much improved condition of the general health, better complexion, sweeter breath and purer blood, and the beauty of it is that no possible harm can result from their continued use, but on the contrary, great benefit. A Buffalo physician in speaking of the benefits of charcoal says: I ad vise Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges to all patients suffering from gas in stomach and bowels, and to clear the complex ion and purify the breath, mouth and throat I also believe the liver is greatly benefited by the daily use of them they cost but twenty-five cents a box at drug stores, and although in some sense a patent preparation, yet I believe I get more and better charcoal in Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges than in any of the ordinary charcoal tablets." *A^tfA-|i.A.Ala&.^ MERELY SEEKS TO PROTECT INDIANS By W. W. Jermane. Washington, Feb. 15.While Senator La Follette is credited with having dis covered, a "nigger in the woodpile" in the bill for the disposal of coal lands in Indian Territory, he does not take any credit to himself on that score. He is, indeed, very mild in his statements con cerning the proposed legislation in the form in which it is now pending be fore the senate committee on Indian affairs. He said today: I regret that my name should have been sent out as having been the dis coverer of anything in the bill which would work injury to the Indians, or rather prevent them from getting their ,-just dues. It is true that I do not like the proposed legislation in its present form. This must not be understood, however, as intimating that anything which would work injury to the In dians was put in there knowingly by any senator. ''The principal objection I have to the proposed law is to that provision empowering the appointment of a com mission to appraise the lands. Expe rience with appraisals of Indian lands and Indian timber, notably in Minne sota, has demonstrated that the Indian seldom gets what his property is worth. I should favor some other way of dis posing of these coal lands. Corporations Safeguards. "Another reason for my opposition to the appointment of a commission of appraisal is that according to my in formation the corporate influences dom inating Indian Territory would take good care that they did not get the worst of it in any deal looking to the disposal of the lands and minerals. One corporation in particular is said to be in complete control of the coal land leases now in force, and certainly its representative on the commission would look out for the interests of that railroad. I am sitting in the committee on Indian affairs as a beginner, and other members appear to have more informa tion on this subject than myself. I am simply giving my view of the case, and say again that I am not making any charges against anyone in connec tion with this legislation." Those who are in position to know say that the agitation about the coal land amendment is due to attorneys representing some of the Indians, who have been advising the Indians and want to gain control of the lands, or who want to be in a position to dic tate the prices at which the lands are to be sold. Some years ago they sub mitted a proposition to the interior de partment to have the lands disposed of by a commission composed or one member each of the Choctaw and Chick asaw bands, on whose reservations the coal lies, these two to select a third member. This proposition was rejected,* because it did not give the secretary of the interior or anyone in authority here any power in the matter of select ing these lands, and because it would leave the commission subject to bad influences among those who would want to get land for little or nothing. The secretary of the interior and In dian Commissioner Leupp indorse the amendment about which so mueh has been said, as it tfives 1 he secretary ab solute power in ^disposing of the lands} leaving with iim the decision whether the prices offered" are reasonable. prices Senator Clapp's View. Officials of the interior department say that if an amendment offered by the sub-committee goes thru, it will protect tho Indians fully. This amendment was prepared by Senators Clapp and Mc Cumber. The sub-committee puts the sale of coal lands in the hands of the secretary of the interior. Senator Clapp said today: ''All this outcry is being made by parties who want to get control of coal lands in the territory, and who won't be able to do it under the provisions of the bill as it has been presented to the full committee. The whole matter is in a tentative stage and will be taken upby the full committee and disposed of the Indians and not to the speculators who are trying to get these lands. The question before the committee is wheth er the commission to appraise the lands shall be appointed by the president, or one member by the secretary, one by the present lessees, and the other by them or a judge or court." mm TOT* They make one feel as though life was worth living.
