How Representative Lewis Se cured the Assay Office for Seat attle—A Masterly Fight Which (lives Republican Leaders the Jim-jams to Contemplate. It is but to adopt old Joe Cannon's words in saying of Lewis' light for the assay office —" It was one of the finest parliamentary line-ups Congress has seen since the days of old Sam Ran dall." " That fellow Lewis tricked his assay mill through," whined Speaker Reed, with a defeated tone. The floor management was so adroit and skillful that the press hoys in the gallery forsook war jottings to watch the maneuvers. A dapper, slight-fig ured man darting silently from aisle to aisle and then to the Republican side to fly back to the Democratic side; "fllitting" out in the corridors, to be followed in his each return by a clus ter of members. The Democratic side soon filled up to the full member ship—the unusual thing—the men had heen in hiding. It was apparent that the slim,slight, courtesying Lewis of Washington had laid a scheme and was marshalling it into perfection. The truth soon appeared, to the dis may of Reed, Cannon and Dingley. Lewis had given out to the enemies of the assay office in some indirect way that on Thursday the regular pri- 1 vate bill day, he would urge his bill, in the meantime personally informing the Democratic side to be 011 hand Monday and to keep the secret unre vealed. To certain Republicans with whom the Seattle man had become " chummy" that truth was whispered, j These Republicans were those who have been kept in bondage by the " big three" of the Republican side, and were laughing in their sleeves at the coup Lewis had in store for the " big uns." Promptly as lunch hour was at its height, when the opponents of the bill were either out—being put off guard—or at lunch. Lewis signalled Stone of Pennsylvania, who is chair man of the committee, to report the bill. Stone arose, the Speaker, un suspectingly, after refusing to call the calender in order to defeat the bill, recognized Stone—as he never would have done Lewis. Stone called for a consideration of the bill. The oppo nents saw where they " were at." Reed grew red, and as usual, when an noyed, began to breathe hard. Pierce of St. Louis opened the opposition by demanding the votes on the consider ation in this irregular way. Two thirds was necessary—majority not sufficient; but Lewis and Stone were ready; down the aisle came the friends of the measure between the tellers to be counted—ll7 to 3. It was clear tli.it organization of the minority aide had caught the majority at a great disadvantage. Cannon sent hastily for Grosvenor, the whip of the Repub lican side, to summon his men at once. But Lewis, as General Coggswell, of Michigan said, had " played too smooth." He had paired Grosvenor with a " dead member," that is, with an absent one—Judge Kleberg of Texas—how he would have voted had he been present no one knows—at any rate Grosvenor was rid of. Being unsuspicious, he had gone from the House, and he alone had the signal. Stone opened, justifying the commit tee's report on the bill in a fine speech. He accorded the floor to Lewis, who was in charge of the Democratic side. Lewis made a speech in excellent temper, well calculated to prevent personal or political feeling from aris ing—a speech asking a favor of friends; covering the whole subject in an argu ment, as was clearly to be seen, pre pared with detail. He then yielded to his colleague, Jones of Washington, who made a graceful presentation of the miners' side of the contest, and at the close was applauded. Then Sha froth of Colorado, followed, and in turn was followed by Bland of Missou ri. Cannon then opened fire. He brought forth from his desk docu ments, and launched forth vehement ly and almost vindictively against the measure, and particularly as to what he called the " engineering trick of the wizard from Washington," which pro duced much laughter. Cannon was very keen at times, and though he showed that he had prepared the mat ter of his opposition with care, that he had been taken unawares by the Seat tle man. Hill of Connecticut, the member of the committee who opposed the bill, next spoke. He, too, was earnest, and tried to get in figures to show no necessity for the office. But his figures he had " left in his office, not expecting the measure at that time." Hill was followed by Walker of Massachusetts, who opposed the bill in a very well arranged speech. He was not caught. He had his matter "Hew t the Line. Let the Chips Fall "Where they May." at hand, but his speech was a general assault on the West, lie exhausted his time, but Lewis, seeing a chance to force tlie West against the East by this speech, gave Walker some of his remaining time. Walker kept up his philippic against everything western and lost the Minnesota vote, which had been partly groomed anyway for the bill. Tongue of Oregon came pulling and blowing into the House as though lie bad run a race. He ottered an amend ment as a substitute, naming Portland instead of Seattle. Lewis and Stone made the parliamentary point that they had suspended the rules bv get ting the two-thirds vote to take up the bill, aud amendments could not be offered, except by unanimous consent- Lewis pulled out bis precedents. It was a looked-for move. Reed sus tained the point reluctantly—Port land was dead at the first stroke! Stone closed the debate for the com mittee and Lewis cut otf Cannon from closing for the tloor opposition by de clining to speak in the remainder of his time, and, instead, demanded the vote. The work was done. The Speaker had to put the ques tion. Cannon demanded decision; the eount showed 129 for tlic bill and 27 against it, an unanimous Demo cratic and Populistic vote, and a good, complimentary number of Republi cans. More than the necessary two thirds by a hundred. The" big three," was beat—the first time in this Con gress. Reed, Dinglev and Cannon were " clearly up against it" when they fought Seattle and her friends. It was a pretty tight, a hot one, and admittedly one of the finest pieces of organization ever seen 011 the floor. ADMIRAL SAMPSON.

SOME of the papers are laughing be cause Spain seems to have a Morro Castle on hand in every city that the controls. This is easily and simply explained. " Morro" means " round" and a Morro Castle is simply another name for round tower. It is not re markable to find such fortifications about any city. IN Spain the churchmen arc telling that God is with the Spanish arms. In this country they are sure He is blessing our cause. Naj>oleon said, Providence is on the side of the heav iest battalions. IN sewing machines for heavy ma terial an awl is attached to the needle arm in a position to puncture the cloth one stitch ahead of the needle, in order to relieve the strain on the lat ter. OLYMI'IA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, JUNE 3, 1898. ONE OF RILL NYE'S JOKES. Ho Was Too Clover for the La mented Hermann. Tito New York U'ori/l contains a number of anecdotes by actresses, of which tiie following by Theresa Vaughn is a gem, giving an instance where ninibleness of the brain was too clever for dexterity of the hand : Well, this story was told me by Mrs. Hermann, wife of the late wonderful magician. A few years ago the late Bill Nye and also the late Hermann, the ma gician, met for the first time in a small Ohio town. Each knew the other very well by reputation and jtersonal characteristics, but they had never been introduced. By chance they stopped at the same hotel on the occasion referred to, and were given seats at the same table in the dining room. They bowed politely and began talking about the weather, each be lieving that the other did not recog nize his vis-a-vis. Just as Nye raised his knife and fork to cut a dish of lettuce salad Hermann uttered a cry of protest and surprise. Nye stopped in astonish ment. " Excuse me, sir," remarked the wizard, " but I thought I saw some thing queer there in your lettuce." The humorist carefully looked over the salad, leaf by leaf, but found noth ing, and again raised his knife to cut it. Again he was stopped by a sharp cry from Hermann, who added apologetically: " I beg a thousand pardons, but I surely could not have been mistaken that time. There is something there. Excuse me." And lie pointed to a large lettuce leaf, raised it and dis closed underneath a magnificent cluster ring worth several hundred dollars. Nye slowly picked up the ring, and without the slightest manifestation of surprise drawled out: "This sort of thing has gone far enough. I'm shedding diamonds wherever I go. Day In-fore yesterday I lost a solitaric in a sugar bowl in Pittsburg, and in Cleveland this morn ing the maid in sweeping out my loom found three or four more. It is positi vely giving me brain fag to keep track of these things, and I am going to give it up as a bad job." Beckoning to a waitress he slipper! Herrmann's ring into her hand and said: "Here's a trille for you. Keep it to remember me by; it's yours." It took Herrmann about half a day to recover it, and it cost him several bottles afterwards. Bombardment Rules. Under the rules of war which have been approved by all civilized nations, there are certain things which a bel ligerent cannot do without laying himself liable to the charge of barbar ism. There are certain rules which must be followed in the bombardment of cities. According to Theodore S. Wol sey, a rccogni/.ed authority on inter national law, great consideration for persons and property must be dis played in a bombardment. All pillage is unlawful, however prolonged the re sistance; unnecessary destruction of property is forbidden; quarter must be given, and killing must be stopped as soon as resistance ceases. Churches, hospitals, establishments devoted to charity, the arts or to scien tific use should be marked by flags and spared as much as practicable. Notice that a bombardment is intended is us ually given, that non-combatants may be sheltered from its effects. More over, it is only fortified places that can be shelled. For a hostile fleet to bom bard a city that was undefended would be an atrocious violation of the laws of war. While Spain would not hesitate to resort to atrocities, it is not likely that she would violate the rules of war iu such a way as to make herself an out law among nations. For that reason, even if our fleet should not intercept the Spanish men of war, there is little danger of the bombardment of any unprotected city on our coasts. The ever-youthful appearance of the members of the dramatic profes sion is a constant source of surprise to the public at large. The reason for this is not so much the grease paint necessary in making up, which obliter ates to a certain extent the natural wrinkles of the skin, while it lubri* cates and nourishes it, but it is due to the change in the expression of the various emotions which every part de mands. This causes the actress to bring into play all the muscles of the face. By using them equally they 11 a maintain their firm consistency and strength, and none waste away from disuse. The result is that the How to Keep Young, skin is kept stretched aud tense over the face and docs not fall into hollows. A blow of fresh air, a glimpse of fresh scenes and fresh faces are worth quarts of doctors' tonics to an over tired and nervous \vi.man, and give a prettier glow to the checks than the finest manufactured rouge in existence. It is indolence and lazy habits that allow obesity to gain the ascendency over elasticity in the fair sex. She who keeps her mind and body on the alert will seldom need to have recourse to science or diet to decrease her size and weight. If you have a thin face, and the llesh seems unwilling to become plump and round in response to mas sage, btiild up the system by taking a half-pint or more of sweet cream every day, eat of cereals which may have been cooked tor several hours, a raw egg beaten up in milk once a day, warm drinks of warm milk diluted with hot water and baked sweet ap ples or ripe sweet fruit nt eaeli meal. Spain's Loss in the Philippines. Spain's loss oi the Philippines is a solar-plexis blow to her finances. Each year until recently she has drawn a revenue of neatly |ir>,ooo,ooo from the islands, and when there has been no insurrection in progress the returns have been much greater. To eke out the revenues the in habitants have been re-pii red to pay duties of 100 j>er cent, on the cost price of muslins and petroleum, and equally high taxes on other goods that did not come from Spain. Planters have to pay a heavy export duty on their tobacco. In 1895 Spain received $4,994,158 in exjiorts from the islands, and in the same year sent to them manufactured goods to the value of $5,153,978. These figures in a period of active insurrection. Apart from the actual revenues which might be derived from the islands under proper government, Spain loses all the buildings and im provements she has erected there. She also loses a fleet worth at least $20,000,090, and heroic defenders whom she cannot replace. She loses a market for her home products. She loses the gold mines and coal mines in the islands which are ex tremely rich, and the development of which has only recently been liegun. She loses a citizenship of some 7,- 000,000 people, who have been satisfied with anything resembling a civilized government. She loses a vast field of enterprise for her i»eople, a place of training for her soldiers, and several ports of in calculable value to her shippiug in terests. She loses several of the most picturesque of Oriental cities—Manila, Iloilo, Laoag, Lipa, llanang and Batangar. She loses a territory as large in ex tent as Great Britain, and almost the size of Spain itself. And worst of all, she loses what little prestige she had left as a mari time power. Light Eyed.People. A correspondent states that in many parts of South America the Indians are suspicious and very dangerous. Some of them will trade with strangers, but can never be relied on, while others will be friendly and have a fairly good reputation in the matter of dealing with foreigners. But on one jtoint all the tribes agree—they do not trust a man with eyes like a cat. In many places in South America a man with light eyes is never safe, and the Indians are apt to kill such a man on sight. If no present opportunity should oiler itself of gratifying this prejudice, they will often hang around for days for the chance of dis posing of the intruder. It is related that not long ago a French trader was sitting quietly among some Goajira Indians, discussing business, when a party of the same tribe who had been filling up witli mescal came along and the cry was raised : " A man with eyes like a cat! Let us kill him now." There was a scramble and a daring rescue, for the trader's companions reached his side only just in time. THE 20 jier cent, war schedule has been added to the army pay rolls. Salaries are now. Major general, $9,- 575 a year; brigadier, $0,875; colonel, $4,375; lieutenant-colonel, $3,750; major, $3,125; captain, $2,500; ad jutant, $2,250; Quartermaster, $2,250; first lieuteuant, $2,000; second lieu tenant, $1,875; private, $15.50 a month; sergeants, $42.50; hospital stewards, $50.25. Commissioned of ficers, however, are supposed to pay their own expenses. IN 1897 the millionaires of the United States gave more than $32,- 000,000 to various benevolent and charitable institutions; no gift con sidered here being less than $5,000. OLYMPJA OYSTER'S. A FEW NOTES BY A CLEAR SIGHTED OBSERVER The Olympia Oyster Beds gave the Reputation to the "Olympia Oyster"—Some Account of Oys tering as Now Pursued —The Principal Oystermen-The Oys ter's Enemies—Our Business in that Line lias Room to Expand. Frank Musimun, in Slu-ltnn Tribune. The oyster industry is one that is becoming of great value to the people of Puget Sound and Mason county in particular, as the acreage is increased every year. In the years to come, when out forests arc denuded of their saleable timber, we will still have our oysters and fish, for all future time, to bring in large sums of money -to the people of western Washington. Ovstcring, especially on Oyster Bay, is done in a very crude way yet, but the oystermen are constantly experi menting with the oyster beds, to make them produce more and better oysters, with very good results. Oysters from highly cultivated beds always bring from 50 to 75 cent 3 more per sack than oysters from natural beds not cultivated. All the upper Sound oysters are called Olympia oysters, because Olym pia was the oystermens' headquarters in days gone by, and Olympia harbor was producing the bulk of tlie oysters, uow called Olympia oysters. These beds became depleted years ago, be cause they were considered public property, and nobody took care of them. The oysters were all taken from the beds and none put back; the mussels got a start and now they arc all mussels and barnacles where before they were fine oysters. Three ac res of good oyster land will produce enough marketable oysters to keep a medium sized family in neces sary wants year in and year out, pro viding the owner does all his own work. In winter-time oystering goes on day and night—in fact the night work is one of the drawbacks to the small oysterman who does all his own work. The loss of sleep—out in rain, wind and cold of a winter's night, when his more fortunate brother, the farmer, is in his cosy lied, is no child's play in itself, and work hard all the next day. An expert oyster culler can cull from two to three sacks per day, but exjiert cullers are rare. Culling re quires quick eyes and hands, to know a marketable oyster from a mass of oysters in an instant. The culling on Oyster bay is most all done by Chinamen, and they make good cullers. When they are not culling they are gambling, and there are games running night and day on the bay, mostly poker, as John loves that " Molicau garue-e." There are about 40 Chinamen on Oyster bay. The largest owners of oyster beds and those in good financial condition are in the order named: J. Y. Wald rip, S. K. Taylor, A. J. Smith, Jimmie Simmons, David Helser, Harriet Cor ter, J. A. Gale, Dick Jackson, H Weatherall, Olympia Jim, John Fian der, Dennis Hurley, Enoch Young. Kittie Gale, Win. Krise, and other small holders. In the early eighties there was a freeze-up that almost ex terminated the oysters on Oyster bay. The quantity of oysters frozen in that year, had they been sold, big and little, at the market price, would have fetched $75,000 cash, at least. The wind cuts no small figure in the loss to oyster-men of Oyster bay. There was a storm a few years ago that dashed float houses, floats and boats on the shore, complete wrecks. A. J. Burr had a store carried off the piling and it went down the bay, a complete wreck, in the same storm. The oysters have many enemies. The ducks, periwinkles, star fish and oyster-crushing fish, called by some the rat-fish, are the worst. Oysters have been considered a delicacy since the days of remove antiquity, down to the present day. Nero, the fiend king, who played his violin when all Rome was burning, by his orders, used to feast the grandees on oysters. There are $80,000,000 wortli of oys ters sold in the world ever year. The Oyster bay oystermen are but small atoms of the great surface of human ity, but the oysters that their beds produce bring in large sums of money to the merchants and others every year. In the early days the oyster was public property on Oyster bay. They were rapidly becoming extinct, when S. K. Taylor, A. J. Smith, Joe Gale and others formed the Oyster bay pro tective association, and divided the land into individual holdings. And to those men the people of western Washington are indebted for the oys ter industry we have to-day, and will have for the future. Oyster bay pro- duces about $20,000 worth of oysters a year. The largest oyster beds in the world are in the Btatc of Louisiana. There are 1,1)00 miles of oyster beds on the coast of that State. The business is carried on mostly by Slavonians and other foreigners. Millions of dollars arc invested in vessels that bundle the output of that coast. Lewis Commended. Our Congressman, James Hamilton Lewis, is making a name for himself in the East as will be seen by the fol lowing dispatch from Washington City. It says: The National Guard of Ohio, New York and Pennsylvania have passed resolutions commending Congressman Lewis and " his aids" for the defeat of the Hull army bill. The Hull bill legislated all officers of the National Guard back to the ranks and officered the guards in the several States with West Point men; put them on salaries paid by the States while putting the appointment of the officers in the hands of the President exclusively. The privates under the Hull bill were reduced to plane of regular soldiers; it paid them SIG per month and treated any refusal on the part of the volunteers to obey orders or attempt to leave the service as insubordination and punishable as such. Old soldiers and Republicans, such as Col. Marsh of Illinois, Gen. Hen derson of lowa, Gen. Bingham of Pennsylvania, and others, joined with Lewis and fought the bill to its death. The bill was opposed by Secretary of War Alger. But it was the idea of Gen. Miles of the army. It was ad mitted that the law would destroy the national guards as State institutions, but this was excused by the advocates of the bill on the ground that the time was ri|>e to coriyert the volun teers into a standing aitniy, all subject to the military laws applying to the regular enlisted men. '/ Here is where the fight was made. 'lt was hot, fierce and resulted in the! victory for the friends of State government and rights of the national guards of the States. If one could haw seen the gold laced bevy of " graduates," as they call themselves, who swarmed every cham ber of the capitol threatening how their " papas" would beat any Con gressman who dared oppose the bill, one could understand the full appro priateness of Lewis' description—in tended for these lobbyists—of " tassel ated military satraps and society sap heads." The Washington Pott says: " Lewis of Washington must have peeped into the secret list of aristocratic scions to be named as officers of the army when he framed his double-barreled accusa tion ' tasselated satraps and gilded so ciety sapheads.'" Best Side of Cemetery. Cinrtouati Enquirer. Probably few people know there is a choice side to every cemetery. Thus, in some parts of the world, the eastern portion, without regard to its situation, is always deemed the most desirable. This preference arises from the old tradition that our Lord will appear from the east. It is also believed that the dead in the eastern portion will be the first to rise, then those in the southern, western and northern in order. In England it was once the custom of laying felons aud other bad char acters on the north aide of the church. The custom of laying the dead in a certain direction is responsible for the east wind," The wind of the dead men's feet." <i ♦ ■ ONE of the most interesting sights of Manila are the girls who make cigars or cigarettes. About sunset any weekday you may see coming out of a long, low building, near one of the bridges, and wending their way by twos and threes, many hundred wo men, clad in the simple but picturesque costume of the Indian, of all ages from 12 to 59, most of them having fine eyes, hair and figure, but homely faces. MOST coughs may be cured in a few hours or at any rate in a few days, by the use of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. With such a prompt and sure remedy as this at haud, there is no need of prolonging the agony for weeks and months. Keep this remedy in your house. HEALTH and happiness are relative conditions; at any rato there can be little happiness without health. To ' give the body its full measure of strength and energy, the blood should be kept pure and vigorous, by the use of Ayer's Harsaparilla.
