Washington. Feb. 10. The house yjient the day- working on the Indian appropriation bill. Forty-two of the sixty-two pages were disposed of. Sev 1 ral amendments were adopted, but done were of much importance. Mr. Cannon made a point of order against a provision to appropriate $50, Oim) to enable the secretary of the inte rior to begin work on the construction of a reservoir on the Gila river, Ariz., for Ftorinjr water to be used for the benefit of the Gila river Indians. Mr. Smith, delegate from Arizona, denied that this appropriation was designed us an entering wedge for the irrigation movement. The point of order was sustained by Mr. Mondel!, of Wyoming, who .was in the chair. Mr. Smith moved t strike out the a ppropriation for the Carlisle Indian school. He declared that experience showed that these sc-hools were distant from Indian reservations and had done more harm than good. The policy was p mistaken ; one. in his opinion. The 'children vfrrv educated and made a htm of by well disposed persons, after nilll.1 lllt.'J' t'IIL U'lUIV UJ Lilt" Ull I dllU Sfejnhlor in which -they had been jf.rofcsht u-0 He Insisted that the In Tun should be educated in the envi ronment in whlch4he must live. These Indian schools in the east were, he said, the outgrowth of an ignorant senti mentnlism. Philosophy, mathematics and geometry taught the Indians noth , 'ng. They should be taught husbandry .it home. He said the best education j iKssssed by one of the Indians on the wan arios reservation naa teen obtain ed by serving four years in penitentia ry. He had been taught discipline. Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, joined with Mr. Smith in opposing the eastern st-hon)s. He declared that it was the height of cruelty to educate Indians and then -eiid them back to savagery. "It becomes a. matter of pride with the tribe." said he, "to force the young man tu again put on the blanket anil to drive the young woman into prostitu tion." Mr. Sherman opixjsed the amend NATURAL SILVER MONTANA FIND Putf. Mont., I-Vb. n.

' "MIMU-KItfi" Not the Proper Way to Take Food. Clerks in grocery stores arc apt to nibble at this and that irtlclc of food, and if they are not careful acquire a "case of stomach." This was the case with L. Shoemaker, Artie. Ind. "While I was clerking In a grocery store it was difficult to resist the temp tation to eat a little of this and that; a bit of candy, some fruit or crackers, and one thing and another. After alHut a year I had serious stomach I trouble and had run down to 91 ihjuihIs, ! was pale and Fallow and poor as a ; snake. I could sleep but little at night j and my distress was terrible. Finally I was compelled to give up j my position and take treatment for mi health. I heard of Grape-Nuts Break- I fast Food and began to use It regularly. I soon began to recover both health and strength, until at the end of about three months steady use I was so fat and well that I was weighed and found I weighed 160 pounds, which was a gain of 6!) pounds in that time. This may sound a little fishy but it is the plain truth and can be verified by any one who cares to inquire of my friends who know the facts." QUITE FAVORABLE FOR COL.

THE FILIPINOS ARE BENEFITTED More Than the United States by Our Intervention in Islands Better for Us, Governor Tift Thinks, if We Had Never Gone There, but There It No Honorable Way to Get Oat Washington. Feb. "JO. Replying to a series of questions by members of the senate committee on the Philippines today. Governor Taft said that the In tervention of the t'nited States in the j Philippines was the best thing thai could have happened for the Filipinos, but it would have been better for our j country If we had not gone there. He auueu: ii inc resun m me enu proves it to be in the interest of the general welfare., then we can jMisslbly justify ourselves on the ground that we have taken only our share of the burden of m'ilizntion in bringing out an unciv ilized people." Continuing the geiwral discussion of the conditions In the Philippines, he expressed an opinion that trade with the Fnited States will ultimately in crease and the islands become self fupfKrting. even to the extent of pay ing the expenses of the I'nitcd States army there. "Ho you brllcve that what we ar now doing in the Philippines is the best for the Filipinos and for the people i f the United Slates as well?" asked Sen ator Allison. "1 do," said Governor Taft. "We ne pursuing there the only course open to us, and it was absolutely impossible for us to pursue any other course than the one we did pursue and are now pursuing there. If the senators on this side of the table (referring to the dem ocratic members of the committee) had been there, they could not have done differently; and when their party comes Into pc.ver. If it should do so. they cannot do anything but go ahead." Senator t'ulberson: "If a safe and honorable opening for a withdraw..! from the islands should present llscli, do you think the United States should avail itself of it?" Governor Taft: "That question as sumes that there might be such an opening; I don't think there will he. and 1 say no. Possessed, us I believe that I am, with the missionary spirit. I think we should continue our work In these islands now that we are there, and there is no likelihood of finding an honorable way out."

RATHER A REVOLUTION Mn MERE STRIKE The Spanish Labor Disturbance ing a National Eruption rhe Conflicts Between the Police and Troops and the Workingmen Have Grown From Riotous Engagements Into Battles Constitutional Guarantees Suspended and a Movement to Put All of Spain Under Martial Law Threatening Volcano in Catalona Feared.

Forty workmen'" associa tions have been dissolved, and tlie members of their ocmmltteea arrested. The duellings of the strike leaders and anarchists are being registered and put under guard. The battleship Pelayo has been or dered to Barcelona. Military engineers have assumed control of the street car service. and a few cars. half filled with soldiers, are running. No letters have been delivered in Barce lona In three days, and in some dis tant parts of the I to n business is completely paralyzed. ... A pitched battle occurred in the out skirts of the city between the strikers and a military escort attached to sev eral wagons that were bringing in pro visions. The contents of the wagons were dragged out and barricades were built across the road. The rails have been torn up to prevent trains from entering the city. The strike movement has begun to spread seriously. At Casterrlnn -De Plana, taking advantage of the night and the advance ' of the police, the strikers set fire to two factories witn the aid of petroleum. The factories were burned. At a woman's meeting held there a general strike was voted. ,At Haraffossa most of the fuptorje are already closed on the demands of the workmen, and the strikers ar bringing pressure to bear to- compel the factories sltll remaining open, lo close their doors. The captain gen eral of Sarag)Fia has wired for re inforcements. The strike commenced at Valencia, but owing to the refusal of the dock laborers to participate it did - not be come general.

Owing to the strict censorship over news from Barcelona It Is difficult to ascertain the real state of affairs there. It Is quite certain, however, that all efforts of the authorities to presuade the labor leaders into a conciliatory attitude have so far failed and the ex tension of the strike movement is mure likely than Its restriction. In addition to the labor movement, the ever present Catalan home rule agi tation is likely to prove a serious factor in the situation.. Women took a promi nent share In the riots and were more -ioIent than the men. Madrid, Feb. 21.

It Is understood that Secretary Long feels that he is at liberty to carry out the project cherished by him in the last year of President McKlnley's ad ministration to retire to private life. However, this Is not expected to en sue at once, for there is no certain knowledge of what may follow In con gress, notwithstanding the strong be lief by the administration that the case is settled beyond revival. Therefore' it is understood that a change In the cab- Inet circle will not take place before the adjournment of the present session, of congress, and perhaps not ' Until next autumn. .
