THE SENATE AFTER REOS M'COMAS AND HOAR MAKE SPEECHES ON ANARCHY. SENATOR HORR HAS A PLAN Should Be Deported to Some Deso late Spot to Practice Their Doc trines Among Themselves. Washington, bec. 5.-Senator Mc.. Comas of Maryland made an extended and carefully prepared speech in the sneate today, with anarchy for his theme, and was folowed by some briet remarks by Mr. Hoar of Massachu setts on the difficulties in the way of the dealing with anarchist assassins. Mr. McComas' remarks showed care ful examination of the legal author ities. He maintained that congress had full power under the constitution to enact a law punishing with death any person killing a president or as saulting the president with intent to kill or inciting or procuring such an act. He favored rigid provisions in the immigration laws for the deporta tion of alien anarchists. Much of the speech was devoted to an explanation of the dangerous doctrines of anarchy, and the extent to which these doc trines had been propagated within re cent years. Senator Hoar's remarks were inter esting as coming from the venerable chairman of the judiciary committee, which will have much to do with the framing of any legislation on this sub ject. He said the difficulty was that assassins of kings and rules always gloried in their crimes, and were in no wise deterred by the fear of pun ishment. For this reason he thought it was almost useless to multiply pun ishment. The most effective remedy, he suggested, would be to have the civilized nations of the world agree upon some desolate spot on the earth's surface to which all anarchists who upheld assassination or the overthrow of government should be transported. In such a community the anarchist could carry out his theories of living without a government, and the world would be rid of his presence. The senate passed a bill extending the life of the industrial commission until February 15, next, to complete the work it now has on hand. The committee which will consider an appropriate tribute to the late President McKinley was announced. The senate adjourned until next Monday. NEELEY CASE HUNG UP FINE POINT OF LAW RAISED BY DEFAULTER. Between Spanish Practice and Amer ican Law He May Escape Proper Punishmeent. Washington, Dec. 5.-The prosecu tion in the case of Charles W. Neeley, charged with postal frauds in Cuba, has met with a check which may cause much delay in the trial of this case. It appears that the prosecution is of necessity relying largely upon letters setting out testimony taken in the United States. Such depositions may be used lawfully according to the Spanish practice. But the question has been raised and has been discus sed by the cabinet, is such a proceed ing lawful under the statute by which the extradition of Neeley to Cuba was obtained. The extradition decision, it is held by Neeley and his friends, demands that he be confronted by the accuser and the witnesses as he would under the American practice. To ad mit this point would be to greatly en "danger the success of the prosecution in the opinion of the officials. How ever, thus far no decision has been reached. , Were Well Monday. Constantinople, Dec. 5.-Spencer Eddy, first secretary -of the United States legation at Constantinople, has received a message via. Salonica,'that the missionary, Miss Stone aJnd her companion, Mme. _Tsilka, were well .ember S. STARCH FACTORY FIRE. Scarcity of Water Hampers the De partment. Des Moines, De'. 5.-A fire was dis covered tonight in the National Starch Manufacturing Co.'s plant in the southeastern part of this city, one of the largest plants of the kind in the world. Lack of water prevented the fire department from accomplishing much, except to keep the fire from spreading to the adjacent property. The fire burned for several hours, and the plant was entirely destroyed. With the exception of the grain'ele vator and engine house. The loss on building and contents is estimated at about $200,000; insurance unknown. A CORNER ON SQUASHES. One Farmer, at Least, May Get a Good Price. Minneapolis, Dec. 5.-A Boston com mission merchant has unintentionally cornered the squash market in the northwest. Just before Thanksgiving he bought eight carloads of squashes here and shipped them to Boston. The result was that the local supply was soon used up and now there is not a squash to be had except 200 dozen owned by a farmer, who is holding out for $2 a dozen, which would mean a retail price of 25 cents a piece. HE WILL HOLD ON. President of the Great Northern Will Not Resign. New York, Dec. 5---The Commer cial Advertiser printed the following statement made today by James J. Hill, president of the Great Northern railway: "I have no intention of re signing the presidency of the Great Northern company. Furthermore, I am not going to give up my residence or home in St. Paul." MINORITY MAKE HARI FIGHT LIVE STOCK CONVENTION FAVOR ABLE TO OLEO. Chicago, Dec.' 5.-The recommenda tion of the executive committee that resolutions condemning the Grout anti-oleomargarine bill be adopted, gave rise to a lengthy and spirited general debate among the delegates present at today's sesion of the live stock convention. Leonard Pearson of Pennsylvania, speaking for the dairy interests, who upheld the Grout bill, led the debate with the plea that with oleo selling under its own colors, butter could hold its own. "You cat tlemen," said he, "insist that coloring of oleomargarine should be allowed, yet you insist that the wool interests should be protected against shoddy masquerading as wool." Former Governor Packard of Iowa moved that the whole subject be de ferred, when Judge Cowan arose and said that packers had as much right to color oleomargarine as dairymen have to color butter. The discussion nrno .o ni ni.o ýn1 .. i.. .......1..... .. the Kansas, California, Missouri, Mich igan and Iowa delegations. It was the first general discussion of the conven tion. Judge Cowan brought the speak ing to an end by moving the previous question. The resolution against the Grout bill was adopted, but over a good sized minority. Colonel Simpson following the reading of his regular paper, made a brief plea for a ship subsidy bill. A resolution to admit Oklahoma to statehood was adopted. Paul McCormick of Montana is a member of the new executive commit tee. A paper by Senator Warren of Wyo ming was read. NO INDICTMENTS FOUND. Grand Jury Report Excuses Negro Burning. New Orleans, Dec. 5.-Judge James M. Thompson, in opening the district court in Washington parish, the scene of the recent burning of a negro at the stake, followed by a riot at Ball town, where several lives were lost, called the attention of the grand jury, to these occurrences,-and urged it to take action to maintain the good name of the community, which had been in jured. The jury, however, brought in the following report: "The men who participated in the burning were among the best citizens of the county, and nothing but a desire to protect those who are nearest and dearest to them would move them to undertake such measures."

Pretoria, Dec. 5.-The largest cap tures of Boers made in many months occured, today, when three columns secured an aggregate of 250 prisoners. General Bruce Hamilton, near Ermelo, Major Hawkins, in the Waterbury district, and General Methuen, in northwest Transvaal, rounded up three laagers with only a few casualties on their side. WILHEMINA FORGIVES HIM THINKS THE PUBLIC SHOULD DO LIKEWISE. Amsterdam, Dec. 5.--With the view of allaying public indignation and ex citement semi-official intimations have been circulated to the effect that Queen Wilhelmina has forgiven her husband, Prince Henry of the Nether lands, the suggestion being that the public ought to follow suit. Since Prince Henry returned to Hetloo the queen and he have been dining togeth er and gradually resuming the normal relations. Yesterday they walked to goether and afterwards drove in the castle park. The relations between Prince Henry and the members of the court are, however, very strained. The former cordiality has been replaced by an attitude of frigid politeness on the part of the prince consort, and ap parently the gentlemen of the court are equally indisposed to gloss over recent occurrences. Can't Prevent Consolidation. Jamestown, N. D., Dec. 5.-Attorney General Comstock said in an interview that the state can do nothing to pre vent the consolidation of railways, and he advised against haste. FIRE AT DETROIT.

The principal renewals are with Great Britain and cover the British West Indies.

The senate spent some time during the executive session discussing 'the question of the proper committee ref erence of the nomination of Eugene R. Hendry to be marshal for the ter ritory of Hawaii. The nomination at first was referred to the committee on Porto Rico and Pacific islands, of which Senator Foraker is chairman, but Senator Bacon raised the point that Haki is a full fledged territory in the United States, and that there fore the nomination should go to the committee on territories. Senators Teller, Foraker, Spooner and Bacon engaged in the controversy which fol lowed and the question was ultimate ly, on the suggestion of Senator Spooner, referred to the committee on rules, for the formulation of a rule governing the subject, the reference meantime being held up. ESCAPE WAS MIRACULOUS PICKED UP BY STEAMER WALLA WALLA. Portland, Ore., Dec. 5.-The British ship Nelson, which was reported lost off the Columbia river yesterday, was towed into Puget sound today by the steamer Walla Walla, bound from San Francisco to Seattle. The hull of the Nelson is practically intact but her bulwarks were smashed, life-boats and foreriggings were carried away and cabins damaged. There are only three inches of water in her hold but the extent of the dam age to her cargo of wheat is not known. The Nelson had a marvelous escape from destruction, according to Captain Perriam of that craft. She crossed the Columbia river bar a week ago tonight and before she had gone a great distance she encountered a se vere ltorm and was roughly handled. Her cargo of wheat was shifted caps ing her to list to starboard, and al most on her beams end. In this condi tion she was picked up by the tug Wallula and an effort was made to tow her to Astoria, but the tug had to abandon her. Later the powerful tug Tatoosh took hold of her but found it impossible to tow her in, owing to the fury of the gale and heavy sea, the captain of the Tatoosh then decided to tow her to Puget sound, but had not proceeded far when the gale in creased in fury, and on Tuesday night, at 10 o'clock, the hawser parted and the Tatoosh was unable to find the vessel when daylight came. The Nel son fired rockets and burned flash I5aLta all ng5UL, uuL nLItIu LU L aLIU.1, the attention of any vessel. On Wed nesday morning the steamer Walla Walla picked her up north of Grey's harbor. MONOPOLIZE THE RANGE SHEEP OWNERS OF WYOMING FORM COMBINATION. Cheyenne, Wyo., Dec. 5.-A gigantic combine is being formed at Rawlins for the purpose of excluding Utah flockmasters and local cattlemen from encroaching upon what is known as the Red desert winter ranges in Sweet Water valley.
