In the of the testi mony of Governor T? ft, and of the con tentions of the republican senators that the Filipinos are couteuted with the existing state of affairs, there has been received a petition from the Federal party iv the islands, signed by 200,000 of the more prominent citizens, re questing that the islands be made an integral part of the United States and given a territorial form of government. This, of course, is not at all in line with the republican designs but it has pro duced considerable effect on tbe more conservative members of the party who are beginning to realize that their colonial policy is impractical and that unless they accord the Filipinos terri torial rights and hold out to them the prospect of ultimate citizenship, they are likely to have a continuous insur rection ou their hands and one that will increase rather than diminish. With Senator Foraker urging a reduc tion of 75 per cent, of the Dingley tariff rates and Senator Mitchell de manding a reduction of 50 per cent., the outcome of the present bill is hard to predict but whatever the republicans determine upon they have the strength to carry. A more serious contest will be precipitated, however, when the Philippine govetnment bill comes up for consideration. It is something of a commentary on republican diplomacy that, while the administration is endeavoring to es tablish cordial relations with the Fili pinos and inspire in them respect for American institutions, Governor Taft is testifying in Washington that they are "a lazy, indolent people incapable of performing jury duty" or determin ing questions of justice. Of course, the press of the islands publishes these statements and doubtless tbe people will be flattered into an immediate ap preciation of the American sense of justice, quickness of perception and keenness of judgment. To a close observer, the trend of the government toward colonialism, en tangling alliances with foreign powers and the attendant naval and military development is necessarily a source of anxiety. The sentiments expressed in the senate lobbies when the news of tbe Anglo-Japanese alliance was made known were more than straws in their indication of the direction in which the country is drifting. The military strength of the country, already weak ened by the distant possessions which must be protected in time of war, must now be augmented and the country placed on the highway toward a stand ing army and a navy that can compete with the European nations into rivalry with which we have entered in the new struggle for colonial possessions and aggrandizment. As is well known, the efforts or our delegates to the Pan American Congress were hampered by the belief of South American countries that this government regarded them with a covetous eye. The fear was ridiculed by the press but on Friday a member of the Senate Committee on Interoceanic Canals stated that per manent ownership of the land through which the Panama Canal might be built was unimportant, as long before the 200 year lease would have expired this country would "own all that ter ritory." Opposition to this tendency found Ye in the House on Friday when AVheeler, of Kentucky, made a violent attack upon the administra tion for its policy in regard to foreign nations and royalty. Had the gentle man's speech been a little more care fully prepared and had he omitted some expressions to which be was doubtless led by the excess of his feel ings, the address would have proved more effective. Underlying the some what extravagant language he used was the stratum of a great truth. Since the passage of the majority anti-oleomargarine bill by tbe House, that body has been engaged in the con sideration of private bills— "doing odd jobs," as one of the mt ibers express ed it when I asked him what was go ing on inside. Today the Ways and Means Committee will consider the Cuban reciprocity question, not be cause it wants to but because tbe un palatable truth has been forced upon the Committee that, in the words of a member. "It must,—or the Senate will." It is probable the Committee will report some measure of relief to Cuba. What its terms will be cannot be foretold but, whatever they are, they will be made to conform to the well-known views of the President when the measure is taken up in the Senate committee. Today the House will take up the repeal of the war revenue taxes. Be fore introducing the measure, however, an attempt will be made to pass a rule ging the debate to two days and biting the offering of any motion ig the discussion. Thisisintend ! course, to prevent Mr. Babcock thers who advocate tariff reform _ amending the bill. It is a sam ple of the gag law with which the re publicans control the party and is need less to say, In direct violation of the spirit of the constitution which intend ed that the House should be delibera tive body. The party whips have been actively engaged and it is believed that the rule will be adopted. The President, through the Post master General, has struck a severe blow at partisan politics by a determi nation to resist the removal of fourth class postmasters except for cause. If the President persists in his present in tention there will be an insurrection in Congress of immense proportions as these appointments now form the ■perquisites with which politicians Mitical debts, campaign for government own iof the Pacific cable is being msly pushed. Representative s, of Michigan, recently address-! i House on the subject and yes r he told me he believed he would vi auie to carry the bill. He has won over the committee until it stands 12 for and 5 against with 2 members ab sent. Mr. Corliss' speech in the House in support of his views was an able effort and appeared to be received with marked approval by many members on both sides of the chamber. Clifton Forge Personals.

They are Due in June—Augusta One of the Counties to be Visited. These enemies of young trees and pests of the farmer arrive in June. They are scheduled to appear in nine teen States in the District of Coluin bia. Virginia is one of the States to which they come. Here are the counties where the farmers will have to combat them and suffer the consequences of their visit: Alexandria, Augusta, Car roll, Clarke and adjoining counties, Fairfax, Frederick, Loudoun, Spottsyl vania, Warren and Wythe. The farmers of Virginia are all familiar with the seventeen year lo custs, as they are commonly" called. For many years the great problem with them has been how to get rid of them, or more correctly how to save the young trees from them. There is absolutely no way to get rid of them. They will come. It is exceedingly fortunate that they dou't come of tener, or there would be no living in the same world with tbem. NOT MANY COUNTIES AFFECTED i Virginia is particularly fortunate. But few counties of the State ever have them, for they do not seem to be ambitious about migrating. Tuey spend their email lives in perpetuating their species. Tbe report from the United States Department of Agriculture gives the following history of this pestiferous but exceedingly unique insect: "The young ant like laroa hatching from the eggs a few weeks later, es capes from the wounded limbs, falls lightly to the ground and quickly bur rows out of sight, forming for itself a little subterranean chamber or cell over some root-let, where it remains through winterandsummer, buried from ligh t , air and sun, and protected iv the same manner from cold and frost. It lives in absolute solitude, separated form its fellows, in its moist earthen chamber, rarely changing its position save as some accident to the nourishing root let may necessitate its seeking another. In this manner it passes thirteen or seventeen years of its hypogeal exist ence in a dark cell, in slow growth and preparations for a few weeks only of the society of its fellows, and the en joyment of the warmth and bright ness of the sun, and the fragrant air ot early summer. During this brief per iod of aerial life it attends actively to the needs of continuing its species, sluggish in movement, rarely taking wind, and seldom, if ever, takes food. For four or five weeks the male sings his song of love and courtship, and the female busies herself for a little longer period, perhaps, with the placing ot the eggs which are to produce the subse quent generation seventeen or thirteen years later. At the close of its short aerial existence the Cleada falls to the ground again, perhaps within a few fet of the point from when it issued, to be there dismembered and scattered about, carpeting tbe surface of the ground with its wings and the frag ments of its body." MOST INTERESTING OF INSECTS. The report again says: '-Theperiodi cal or seventeen year Cleada is, in the curious features of its life history, the most anomalous and interesting of all the insects peculiar to the American coninent. "This Cleada is especially remarka ble in its adolescent period, the tea tui :s of particular divergence from all other insects being its long subter ranean life of thirteen or seventeen years, during all of which time its ex istence is unsuspected and uninlicated by any superficial sign, arid the perfect regularity with which at the end of these periods every generation, though numbering millions of individuals, at tains maturity almost at the same mo ment." SOME ARRIVE EVERY YEAR. It wouldn't be so bad if the locusts didn't come but once in seventeen years. But there are a number of broods of locusts and they come to some section of the country every year. If it isn't the time for the seventeen year pests to arrive, it is for the thir teen-year gentry, or some other brood. They all have the same, intent of lay ing eggs and incidentally killing all tbe young trees that get in their way. In the middle west they destroy thou sands of dollars worth of property. They are dreaded like a prairie fire. In his annual report, soon to come from the printers, Mr. Koiner, the commissioner of agriculture, warns the farmers of Virginia against them, and gives a remedy for keeping them off young trees, which he has himseif tried and found to be effective. In fact, he thought out the remedy. It is, briefly stated, as follows: Lop off the outer limbs of the tree, cover with cheese elotb, aud wrap the body of the tree with newspapers. The lat ter keep off evil here too. There is mystery about the locusts; everyone is interested by the mysteri ous. To Cure a Cold in One Day. Take Laxative Bromo Quinine Tablets.
