The government, as usual in every crisis, seems to be hesitating as to which course to pursue.

Several of ficial notes have been issued deny ing that the government Intends to resort to force but at the same tinte there is no indication that the emper or Is ready to yield to the demand for succession of the present ministry with one from the majority in lower house of parliament. The result is a virtual deadlock, the prolongation of which can only serve to diminish the chances of a peaceful settlement. Two plans for extricating the gov ernment without changing the direct issue are suggested by the emperor's moderate advisers. One is simply to allow the lower house to talk un til the end of June, when the summer vacation will be scheduled. The oth er Is to dissolve parliament and or der a new election.

Effort* to 28.—Up- tun Sinclair, whose aid in examining int« the affairs of the beef trust has been sought by President Roosevelt, was jubilant today over the swift ac tion of the senate in passing the Bev eridge meat inspection bill. He was much interested in the findings of the president's commission which has been investigating the conditions in Chica go packing houses, and read with much satisfaction the gist of the re port which was telegraphed from Washington. "The report," said Mr. Sinclair, "verifies all that I have said and writ ten on the subject and it is fortunate that Its contents have been made public at this time, when the packers are exerting themselves to the utmost to have it suppressed, or such parts of it as disclose the worst features of the trust's^ business. The public does not know that federal inspection does not protect it from infected meat and it should insist on having the report so it may know just what it has to face. "Under the present laws the federal government has no right to interfere with meat intended for local consump tion. The only houses It can inspect are those doing an interstate business. If the federal inspection is made ever so strict, all it will accomplish is that cattle not fit for consumption will not be offered In registered packing houses but will be sifted out and killed for local consumption. In other words, the packers, do their own inspections WItriI wwll and local consumers get all the meat wmmmmmisann Kill Two Officials Unsuccessful.

Washington, May ML—Secretary Wilson of the agricultural department and Dr. Wiley, government chemis are anxious to have congress appro priate $25,000 for exoerlmentH In con nection with plants containing alcohol and it is likely that as a result of a letter Secretary Wilson will send to congress next week, a Joint resolution will be introduced carrying the sum named. It is the idea of the secretary that experts from the department ought to go to Europe this year with a view to finding out just what plants are used in the countries there in connection with the distillation of alcohol, and in troducing the best of those plants in to the United States. In Germany, for instance, the alco hol potato Is a large white potato, not especially desirable for eating pur poses, but yielding almost twice as many bushels an acre as other varie ties and twice as much alcohol to the bushel. It is obviously important to have that potato for use .in this coun try. Similarly, the secretary wants to ex periment with corn and corn stalks, and do much work which will help the farmers and distillers put the new free alcohol law into successful operation. Commissioner Yerkes, who is to draw up the regulations under which ihohol Is to be manufactured, also wants to send agents abroad to get hold of the rules adopted by France, Germany and other free alcohol coun tries for safe-guarding the revenues. Dr. Wiley has made serevai trips abroad and is familiar with the char acter of the distilleries in European countries. He will be freely consulted by Commissioner Yerkes. Secretary Wilson is Inclined to think that the free alcohol law will work to best advantage for the farmers in Un mixed farming countries of the mid dle west, where the cattle country overlaps the corn country, and where, also, sugar beets can be grown suc cessfully. This is true he says, be cause the by-products of the distiller ies can be used for food for cattle, thus reducing the cost of distillation! Large numbers of cattle, can be ship ped to the distilling centers and there prepared for market. -m i n i n i a i n Jefferson Cily, Mo., May 28.—Light ning struck a freight train on the Missouri Pacific railroad here today and instantly killed W, H.

Rate Bill, Alcohol Bill, Consular Re form and 8tatehood Measures Are the Big Things Done Thia Year by Congress. Washington, May 28.—The present session of congress will adjourn with four important Dieces of legislation to its credit—free alcohol, railroad rates, consular reform and statehood. Consular reform was recommended by the president in his message last December, but it has been accomp lished only in part, owing to the un willingness of senators to relinquish the best that now remains of official patronage. Still, the new law will accomplish much. It will perhaps prevent another era of consular cor ruption in the far east, and there will be promotions in theservice, and strict examinations (previous to (appoint ment, that will help make the service what it ought to be. Statehood will be accomplished only in part, so far as the executive recom mendation is concerned. Oklahoma and Indian territory will be admitted, but. Arizona and New Mexico will be permitted, at a special election, to vote on the proposition. As to railroad rates, the president gets even more than he asked for In his message. All that he there asked was power in the commission to name a rate to take the place of an unjust rate complained of. The bill as amended In the senate, carries much more than this provision. Free alcohol was not recommended In the annual message, but It receiv ed the president's cordial approval when it came up later on, and he ur ged it in his recent message about the Standard Oil Co. These four important legislative en actments make a pretty good session record, and both houses, now that the hot weather is at hand, are willing to rest on it and postpone everything else until the short session next e 1 Mftltla at Rifle Practice.
