ALBUQUERQUE EVENING CITIZEN.
Tuesday, rEnnrAJiT n, mr. EXTRA OF SENATE BE Called ;if Santo Domingo , Treaty Shall Not be Acted on by March 3rd. Special Correspondence. Washington, D. C. Feb. 12. The republican managers of the senate re most anxious to avoid a special session of the senate If they can do bo without neglecting the public business. The public business In this case pertains more to the affairs of, the little Dominican republfc; than It does to the United States, and It all grows out of the arrangements made by Mr. Roosevelt something more than a year ago. In which this , government undertook to collect the customs of the Island republic, segre grate a portion of the funds and ap- pry them to the liquidation of the foreign debt. This action was taken under a treaty negotiated by the state de partment but which the senate has refused to ratify, and therein lies the possibility of a special session. Ow Ing to vigorous democratic opposi tion, action on this treaty In com- j mlttee has been Impossible, but the administration considers the matter bo Important to the peace and wel fare not only of Santo Domingo, but of the United States, that the presi dent has said he will call the senate together after March 3 If It does not ratify this treaty before the adjourn ment of the present session. Meanwhile a new and much more simple convention has Deen negotl-, ated, one that deals merely with the financial question and omits all ref-' erence to the Monroe doctrine, j guaranteeing sovereignty and other' things that democrats say mean the swinging of the "big stick." Through the presentation of this new treaty the president hopes to obtain demo cratic support and ratification with in the next month, as the president la as anxious as anyone else that when congress adjourns at the time fixed by the statute there will be no occasion to compel the senate to re main here. But Inconvenient as It may be and undesirable as some sen ators think such a session Is, the president Is understood to be deter mined that this new treaty shall be ratified and that this government shall continue as the fiscal agent of Ban to Domingo, with the full as sent of the senate. Ilrownsvllle Investigation. The opening ,of the Brownsville Investigation, authorized by the sen ate after a debate covering a period of almost two months. Indicated that the inquiry could never be complet ed even within a period equal to that required for discussion of the sub ject in the senate. -The, first day's hearing, which was entered upon without any exasperating delays, was devoted entirely to the examination of one of the non-commissioned of ficers of ,'the discharged battalion, without concluding his testimony. If this Is to be the average rate of speed members of the committee fear that it may be the middle of the summer before the task Is com pleted. Just how many witnesses -may be called Is unknown, but from what Senator Foraker has said It is believed upwards of one hundred men may appear before the testi mony is completed. So gigantic la the task beginning to appear that members of the committee are al ready suggesUng that the evidence be taken by sub-committee to be sub sequently read and passed upon by the full committee. This will prob Ablyl be the arrangement for the taking of the greater part of the evi dence. Under such an arrangement It is pretty certain that Mr. Foraker will be one of the members of the committee constantly on hand to represent the discharged men, and that Chairman Warren, of the com mittee, will personally look out for the administration side of the in vestigation. This inquiry probably will be more extensive than any Investigation held by a senatorial committee In many years. Knornious Pension l'aynu-iiU. J In the debate In the house on the service pension bill, the interesting fact was brought out that a grand total of S3. 320.860,022 has been paid out In the shape of pensions on account of wars In which the United States has been a party. Over three billions of this Bum Is on account of the civil war and twelve millions. In round numbers, as a result of the war with Spain. The service pension bill practically gives a pension to every veteran of the civil war and the wur with Mex ico, now living, who was In either service for a period of three months and who has reached the age of 62 years. According to the pension of fice the Increase In the cost of pen sions by this legislation will amount to about $1S, 000, 000 for a time. There are now pensioners to the number of 148,000 between the age of 62 and 70 already drawing pen sions who will be entitled to In creases under this law. Between the ages of 70 and 75 there are today about 30,000 veterans. The "un known" army of veterans aggregate!! about 100,000 and the commissioner of pension believes that fully one third of this number will file appli cations under the new law. This government In addition to the amounts paid out for pensions on account o the civil and Spanish wars, has contributed to the sup port of Its citizens In the way of pen sions, $70,000,000 on account of the revolution; 145.440,790 on account of the war of 1812 with Kngland; $7.- 37,268 on account of the Indian wars; 136,632,848 on account of the war with Mexico, and 14,707,510 growing out of the service of the regular establishment. 1 1 citing I Mica.

C, Feb. 12 The social game goes on at the same old merry place, and the fact that Ash Wednesday looms in the near future seems to have given an added xest to the fleeting galtles. The season of oflkinl entertaining closed In a respletitent blnr.e of glory when the army and navy circles were received at the white house on Thursday night. This reception is second In brilliancy only to the one given to the diplomats at the opening for the season, and, like most good things Is reserved for the latter part of the official program. For who can resist the fascinations of a dashing uni form, not to mention tho youth and gallantry, worldly courtesies and "savolr faire" that go with It? The guests came early, and the stately old home of presidents was again radiant rwlth beauty, music and laughter. Formality was laid aside, young lieutenants dashed about paying eager court to popular belles, supercilious captains gazed upon the scene with tolerant condescension and deigned to drop a word here and there to ladles who frankly sought to entertain these lordly cavaliers, while majors and colonels, Inclined to embonpoint and giddy young de butantes Indulged In airy persiflage, paid glowing compliments and grew young again amid the scene's festivi ties. The President and Mrs. ltoose velt seemed In unusually good spirits and Joined heartily In the merriment. The receiving line was depleted, as has been the case all winter, but the Blue Room was full of especially honored guests, who were guests of Secretary of State and Mrs. Koot. The Shouts Farewell Ball. Preparatory to leaving Washing ton, fMr. and Mrs. Theodore Shonts gave one of the most important pri vate dances of the season from a so cial standpoint. The entertainment was In honor of their two young daughters who have been the re cipients of so much attention throughout the winter. The entire lower floor of their large house on New Hampshire avenue was arrang ed for the dancers, pink being the dominant color note of all the ap pointments, roses and orchids being used In effective and lavish decora tion. The figures were danced, Mr. George Howard leading the cotillion. The favors were exceptionally pretty and there was a great variety. . For the ladles there were silver hatpin holders tied in pink ribbons, tiny gold-flBh pendant from the ends of thread-like ribbons or pink, novelty pin cushions of lace decorated with Dresden rosebuds; French handbags of embroidered brocade, Japanese dolls and Chinese fans. The men guests received Bllver pencils, tiny Ivory birds In Chinese carving, mounted hat brushes, fiat Jap fans, unique shaving pads, and miniature Panama hats tied in pink ribbons. Mrs. Shonts wore a creation of pink satin the bodice of which was draped with black maline fastoked to the corsage with two beautifulfcil ver roses. Miss Theodore Shonts wore a handsome gown of white satin with hand embroidered pink roses embellishing the low cut bodice and following the hem of the gracefully trained skirt. Miss Marguerlta Shonts was charming in a gown of white satin pallletted In white tub ing marked In tiny brilliants In a dainty roBe design. Among the guests were the German Ambassador and iBaroness von Sternburg, the Ambassador from Russia and Bar oness Rosen, the Danish minister, the Hon. Maud Pauncefote, Repre sentative and Mrs. Longworth. Mrs. Marshall Field, and Mrs. George Vanderbllt. Vulgarity at Iurge. Apropos of the numerous cotil lions that have been the favorite mode of entertainment for the past month. It Is said that the favors In many cases have brazenly shown the utllitaranlsm of the age, shocking many of the tuiests, who neverthe less consent to Tieeept the trifles. At one notable entertainment given by newcomers to the Washington colony of outsiders the bells received pic ture hats with gorgeous curling plumes feathered boas and muffs and silver mounted chatelaine bags, while their partners received ml. nently practical souvenirs of the Joy ous occasion, consisting of suit cases and umbrellas. One hostess with more generosity than good taste gave full sets of exquisite French under wear, shocking her conservative guests, many of whom, however. would consider a dozen pairs of silk hose as rather an nnllnnrv fuunp tn be given either at dances or at card parties.

The Captain's Story. Chaplain Bateman has been in cor respondence with Capt. F. E. Phelp, a retired army officer now living at Urbana, Ohio, and has gained some very Interestinig Information con cerning the early days of Fort Bay ard, says the Silver City Independent. He has learned that the present line of officers' quarters Is the third In the history of the post. The first quar ters were made of logs and slabs, the second were erected of adobe and the present line Is not over twenty years old, the cottages being, of course, quite recent. Captain Phelps is now taking steps to have the grave of his wife, who died In the long ago at Fort Bayard, marked with an enduring headstone. A brick tomb, now fallen Into, decay. for many years covered the sacred spot. "There was," writes the captain, "a tender Interest In the tomb and fence which may Interest you. Bayard was a military prison for New Mexico and convicts were sent from many of the posts of that region. I was adjutant and In charge of the prison and pris oners. When Mrs. Phelps was bur ied, March 16. 1874 a cold, stormy day I was astonished to see all the convicts carrying the ball and chain under guard at the grave. I went eat very soon with my two children the baby died at Fort Union' en route and when I came back In 1875 I was equally astonished to find a brick tomb and a neat picket fence, and more bo when tho commanding officer told me tho convicts had askedi permission to build both, and to show they were not trying to get out of work, they asked to be allowed to build it on Sundays the only day of rest they had. I knew It was from no love of me, for I had convicted most of them of their crimes. Ha gave me the name of the spokesman, and on sending for him he asked me If I ever noticed that my tobacco went fast and if I noticed that there was seldom any cold meat in my house.

There Is one bequest of 600 francs to "the widow of Dr. Schuerman, who keeps the milk house at 18 Rue de Flanda, Ghent, Belgium." . The banquet In memory of Van Loo wilt be held as soon as the estate Is settled, and his fellow artists are look ing forward to the event with a great deal of Interest. The dead painter wore the costume In which he Is pictured at one of the famous entertainments of the Cincin nati Art club. It shows him as "The Burgomaster," which in his case was no empty title, for while visiting his native village some years ago he stumbled into a political war In which two factions could not agree. To set tle the difficulty, Van Loo was elected to the office of burgomaster. The photograph is by Enno Meyer, a young artist protege of Van Loo. in working in the quarry blasting rock Mrs. Phelps used to coax the sentry to allow four prisoners to sneak Into the kitchen at a time, where she gave them whatever there was '.o eat and some of my smoking tobac co, an article which cost 12 per pound. She would Btand guard while the prisoners ate, and If I approached she would give the warning and they would get back to the task of break ing rock as quickly as possible. This spokesman kept a roster, so all could know when each man's time came to enjoy the luxury. "When she died they asked permis sion to attend the funeral and after ward built the tomb as a token of re spect and gratitude for her goodness to them." The old prison which confined these prisoners has been located and stood Just south of the round maga zine and enclosed an area now par tially covered by the present guard house. The prisoners' quarters were within a compound, encircled by a high adobe wall, of which not a ves tige now remains. HIS. CARPENTY DE SERTED BY HUSBAND Mrs. R.
