Otis Contempluros Gpneral Onslnusfl't* WASHINGTON, March 7.—Thereis some reason to expect important news from Manila within the next fortnight. It has developed that General Otis has practically completed his plans for a grand onslaught on the insurgents, which is expected to deprive them of offensive power at least. It is probable that ho will form a large part of his force into columns as soon as liia rein forcements are all at hand and will push these in parallel lines straight through the jungles, clearing out the Insurgents in every direction as the troops move forward. The American troops are getting restless and nervoas nnde? the petty but annoying sharp shooting of the Filipinos, and are so anxious to put a stop to this that Gen eral Otis has yielded to their desire. Stormy Session of Spnnlith Cortes. MADRID, March 7.—The initial ap pearance in tho senate yesterday of Senor Silvela as premier was marked by a somewhat stormy session. He attempted to read tho decree of dissolu tion, and Count d'Almenas tried to talk but his voice was drowned with cries of "Cousquez, consquez." The presi dent of the house vainly endeavored to quell the disturbance, but finally Senor Silvela completed reading the decree amid cheers for liberty mingled with cheers for the queen, tho army and the navy. The session was declared closed amidst an uproar. There were similar scenes in the chamber of deputies and shouts of "Down with the Jesuits," and cheers for liberty. The session was closed in a general uproar. The ushers had to drive the public from the floor and the platform of the chamber No Trouble With These Natives. WASHINGTON, March 7.—A cablegram from General Otis at Manila indicates the satisfactory and agreeable reception accorded to the American troops which recently lauded at the island of Negros. They were sent there by General Miller, in command of Colonel Smith, to take formal possession for the United States, which he did without trouble. Previous to the time the troops arrived, a com mission from the island visited General Otis, saying they were willing to sur render and asking that he take the in habitants under his protection. The congratulatory dispatch to General Miller by the natives is gratifying, as it is believed there will be no trouble in dealing with the natives of that island. Uncle Sam Not Respomllile. WASHINGTON, March 7.—The Asso ciated Press is authorized to state that under no conditions will the govern ment of the United States consent to recognize in any manner any financial obligations issued by the so-called as sembly of the Cuban army, now in ses sion near Havana. Should the body see fit to authorize tho issue of any bonds for any purpose the government of the United States will not be led into guar anteeing them and they must stand on their own resources in that matter.

NEW YORK, March 7.—Rndyard Kip ling continues to improve, having slept naturally the greater part of last night. He has taken no solid food and it may be a week before ho is able to do so. Joseph Kipling, eldest child of Mr. and Mrs. Rudyard Kipling, died yesterday at the home of Miss DeForest in East Thirty-fifth street. It is not definitely known whether the news of the death of his ohild was communicated to Mr. Kipling, but it is generally believed that his condition is such that the phy sicians will not tell him until ho is stronger. BEEF INQUIRY MOVES WEST. Court Transfer* Sitting* to Chicago, Omaha nnl ltiuirt is City. WASHINGTON", March 7.—Tho war de partment court of inquiry held a very brief session yesterday, tho last before their si art ioi- tho west, where they will inspect the p-icktnar plants of Chicago, Omaha and Kansas City. There was but one witness examined, Lieutenant Frederick L. Munsou of tho Ninth in 1 an try. lie said that during his service in Cuba up to the surrender of Santiago his command had as a, meat component of the ration, bacon and canned roast beef in (lie prouorcion of about 10 days of the fornn-r to 1.") days ot tho latter. Until the surrender he received no com plaints of t.he canned roast beef, but after the .surrender his commissary ser geant reported to him that something was making the men very sick. They did not know what it was, buc thought it was something they had eaten. After eliminating every other factor they could think of, they concluded it must be the canned roast beef. Tho court adjourned to meat in Chi cago on Thursday^ •. Ployed Anglo-Atnericttii National Aim. WASHINGTON-, March 7.—Anglo Americau lriendship was illustrated in music yesterday whon with the consent of the president, the United States ma rine baud serenaded Lieutenaut Dan Godfrey and his British Guards band who arrived here from England Sun day.

Then the Marino band broke into "America," and on its con clusion the members of the British Guards band gave three cheers for the president of the United States. "The Star Spangled Banner," followed by "Belgravia," were next rendered and the serenade concluded with "Admiral Dewey," a new quickstep composed by Bandmaster Santelmann. nigh Water at Cincinnati. CINCINNATI, March 7.—Fifty-three feet is the 10 o'clock gauge of the Ohio river at this point. This is beyond all expectations. The rainfall in the lim ited section of the Ohio shed south and east of the Ohio was greater than any one expected. The rise at this point is about three inches an hour. This has unexpectedly been maintained for more than 24 hours. The indications here now are that there will be 56 feet of water in the Ohio at Cincinnati today. Damage by the flood to cities in Ohio re ported so far have been slight. At Huntington, W. Va., where the stage is 52}g feet, two barges of coal were sunk in the Guyan and thousands of sawlogs were washed away. At Ports mouth, cellars and factories are flooded on Front street, while on Mill, East Front and Jackson streets many people have been driven from their dwellings. Dead Soldiers Will Be Brought Home.

VOLUME XXXIV NO. 18 BOUGHT INBYTHE ROAD Union Pacific Railway Lands Sold at /Vuction/" ONLY ONE BIDDEB APPEAES. Vice President Cnrnlah For the Company Takes In the Thousands of Nebraska Acres Tltnt Are Offered by the Special Master—Two Protests Are Filed Agalust the Sale. OMAHA, March 7.—All the lands of the Union Pacific Railroad company in Nebraska covered by the sinking fund mortgage of 87!5 given by tho old com pany to the Union Trust company of New York as trustee, were sold yester day for $808,814 and were bought in by the now Union Pacific company. The description of tho lands was read by counties and when finished, the special master would ask for bids on any por tion of the lands in each county, and nono being offered, ho called for bids for all in ths county. Only once was a bid for an individual tract offered. A man wanted a pieca of tho laud in Dawson county and made a bid upon it. Tho Union Pacific representative at onc.e raised the bid and it took only about two minutes for tho western man to learn that ho was outclassed and he withdrew from the contest. This par ticular piece of land sold for §350. 1 W. D. Cornish of New York, vice president of tho Union Pacific company, represented that corporation at the sale, and made the bids which were ac cepted by tho special master. Just as the sale was begun two protests were filed with the special master. H. T. Clarke, who owns a number of con tracts of sale to portions of this land, filed a written protest, touching that portion of the property in whioh ho is interested. The other protest was a long document covering some 25 typo written pages. A copy was filed in the clerk's office of the United States cir cuit court and anotlior copy served the special master. The author of this protest is B. G. Burbank of this city, who alleges that he represents parties, who desire to homestead the land under the laws of the United States. It is set forth in the protest that the Union Pacific company for feited its rights to the lands in not sell-^ J ing or disposihg of them within thread years after the completion of the road, as provided in the contract with the gov eminent. The total number of acres of land af fected by the sale in Nebraska is 1,107, 759.57, but over half this amount is now under contract of sale, and the equity in these contracts makes up a part of the $900,000 bid for the contracts,at the sale. It is estimated that about 500,000 acres are not contracted for, and it is this portion which it is said by some should be thrown open to public settle ment under the general land laws. Coiidition of Itnnge Stock* DENVER, March 7.—For the past month tho headquarters of the National Live Stock association has been engaged in gathering reports of the condition of live stock on the western ranges. These reports include almost the entire west, and cover loss from winter weather and storms, together with general conditions for the spring. While most of the cat tle have wintered well, the winter has been of unusual severity, and while losses are light thus far, the cattle are as a rule very weak and in poor condi tion to withstand severe storms of the spring. One of the worst features in the outlook is the scarcity of forage re ported from many districts. Very early grass is an absolute necessity jo keep many of the cattle alive. Forty-five Killed by the Toulon Explosion PAKIS, March 7.—The deaths result- ing from the Toulon explosion of San-~| day morning number 45 and 180 persons'/' were injured. The reports that the ex plosion was the result of a crime are" renewed. The Petit Journal asserts that a fuse four feet long has been' found in tho ruins. M. Lockroy, min ister of marine, in the coarse of an interview held with a representative of tho Gaulois, said that none of the theories advanced was admissible. "Im prudence on the part of the personnel,: lie added, "was impossible, as the ex plosiou occurred several hours after the gates had been closed. The heating theory, too, is unsound, as the tempera ture of the building was always low and the air dry."
