into the regular session.
With this view of the case, the tentative

to the exclusion of all other questions.
Mr. Hnle moved to reconsider the vote
by which the New lands joint resolution for

made on the motion without disposing
of It.
Messra Hale and Piatt of Connecticut
disavowed any deBlre on the part of the
United States to acquire Cuba, and ex-
firessed regret that the resolution had been
ntroduced. Mr. New lands defended the
measure as presenting a natural soluUon
of the problem of the relationship between
the two countries

morrow. Before adjournment the Senate unani
mously agreed to vote on the Cuban bill

"This is the case," said Fickelssen,
"which was reversed and remanded by

Butllcient Indictment. It was redocketcd
when sent back bv the Supreme Court.
As the Supreme Court has held thit the

not lutr than December 15
At Laspalmas, which Is situated on the
west coast of Africa, he will equip Ms

of Congo. The Journey will be made on
horebick. by hoati on the river and on

Before departing from New York Doc

liven If the party arrives safely at Its
destination, the mitter of inducing the
Pigmies to come to St. Louis will be diffi
cult. It will be hard to persu ide them to
leave their countrj, and dlplomacj will
be required in denling with the Portugese
and British officials, who govern the coun
