Session of Congress Just Closed Has
Seen Some Important Legislation
Canal Bill One of the Important Meas­
ures of the Session—Repeal of
War Revenue.
Other Measures of Unusual Importance
Passed at the Session—Washing
ton News.
This has been an important session
of congress and notable among these
larger measures is the isthmian canal
bill, which consummates the efforts of
a half century to link together the
waters of the Atlantic atal the Pacific.
Aside from .-its national and interna­
tional importance, this bill probably
•involves a larger sum of money than
that covering any other single under­
taking by the government outside of
war expenditures. The Philippine civ­
il government bill is another measure
of far-reaching importance, extending
to our remote Pacific possessions a
system of internal civil government,
together with coinage, currency, bank­
ing corporation, timber, and home­
stead laws. Among the other impor­
tant general laws enacted are those
repealing the war l-evetnue taxes ex­
tending and making more effective the
Chinese exclusion laws establishing a
tariff for goods to and from the Phil­
ippines extending the charter of na­
tional banks for 20 years establishing
a permanent census office restricting
the sale of oleomargarine by placing
a high tax on imitation butter pro­
viding a consular and diplomatic serv­
ice for Cuba establishing an extensive
system by which the government will
aid in the irrigation of the arid sec­
tions of the west.
The repeal of the war revenue taxes
reduced taxation $73,250,000, and is
said to" be the largest single reduction
of taxation ever made in this country.
By this step the last of the taxes im­
posed at the beginning of our war with
Spain was wiped out. The Philippine
tariff act imposes 75 per cent of the
Dingle'y tariff rates on articles coming
from the Philippines to the United
States, and also imposes on articles
entering the Philippines from the
United States the rates of duties es­
tablished by the Philippine commis­
sion. The oleomargarine act results
from several years of agitation. It
places a tax of ten cents a pound on
substances colored to immitate butter.
The irrigation act is of special im­
portance to the development of the
west. It creates an irrigation fund in.
the treasury department, into which
is to be paid the proceeds of the sales
of public lands in the arid states. This
fund in .turn is to be used in storing
water and establishing irrigation sys­
tems, the irrigated sections to be open
to homesteaders, who are to be charg­
ed a proportionate share of the cost
of the' improvement.
The Chinese exclusion law continues
exclusion "until otherwise provided by
law," and also applies the exclusion
"to the island territory under the ju­
risdiction of the United States.''
Aside from these important laws
there are a number of other measures
of general importance which have
passed one or both houses, but have
not progressed to the final stage.
These include the anti-anarchy legis­
lation, which grew "out of the assassi­
nation. of President MoKinley. Bills
restricting anarchy and throwing "safe­
guards about the president have pass­
ed both branches of congress, but it
has been impossible to reqch an agree­
ment in conference, so that the subject
goes over until next December.
A bill giving statehood to Arizona
New Mexico and Oklahoma, knowi^ as
the Omnibus statehood bill, pafcsed the
house and the senate has determined
to tajce up the matter early in the next
The ship subsidy bill secured early
attention in the senate, but the end of
the session has come without the
measure being reported to the house.
As it passed the senate the till grants
graded subsidies to steam and sailing
vessels of American build. In the
house it has been deemed desirable tp
|et th« subject go over until the short
session, when, it is expected that a bill
on the subject wiil he reported' nnd
yv&d to passage, j-' f.
Several other measures, have ad­
vanced to a certain stage and have
then Raited without much prospect for
farther advancement. These include
the bill tor the election of TJntted
States senators by direct vote of the
tically a unanimous vote, but in the
senate has received little attention and
is not likely to pass.
The house passed a bill relating to
the immigration laws, corliying and
amending these laws relating to im­
portant changes. It lias been reported
to the senate, but there is not much
prospect of its passage at this session.
The bill defining the meaning of con^
spiracy in injunction cases passed the
house of representatives, but lias not.
made much progress in the senate. On
the other hand the senate passed an
important measure creating a depart­
ment of commerce, to be presided over
by a cabinet officer, but it has made
no progress in the house, not having
been reported from the committee on
Another bill of interest to the com­
mercial world is the pure food meas­
ure which was. drafted by the Pure
Pood congress, and after extended
hearings was reported from the house
committee on commerce but not pass­
The Fowlfer bill probably was the
most important financial measure
which has been brought before con­
gress. After considerable public dis­
There have been several investiga­
tions during the session, which have
attracted much attention. An investi­
gation of conditions in the Philippines.'
conducted by the Philippine committee
of the senatee, has led to the examina­
tion of many witnesses high in the
•conduct of civil and military affairs in
the islands. Another senate inquiry
has .related to the condition of affairs
in Cuba, especially as to sugar. In the
house, sensational charges made in
connection with the purchase of the
Danish West Indian islands led to an
investigation which disclosed the
groundless nature of the charges.
Mrs. E. F. Allen entertained at her
residence on Fourth street Thursday
afternoon In honti*- of her sisters. Mrs.
Norton and Mrs. Loomis, who are vis­
iting from their homes in Michigan.
The afternoon was passed at progres­
sive euchre, Miss Boucher winning
first prize, Mrs. Cook the prize for lone
hand and Mrs. Michelson the consola­
tion prize. The prizes were dainty re­
membrances ithat will be cherished by
the recipients. A delicious course
luncheon was served at tihe close of the
play. Mrs. Allen was a charming hos­
tess and the afternoon was much en­
joyed by those present, including the
following: Mesdames Cook, Brown,
Call Dunn, Patterson, Newton, Pye,
Foley, Dillon, W. H. Webb, Chamber­
lain. Jones, Michelson, Jewell, Conk

sevenal .conferences by the
members of the house, it has gone
over for consideration next December.
Another financial measure, known as
the Hill bill, providing for the coinage
of subsidary silver and for the retire­
ment of the present standard silver
dollar, has passed the house, but has
not been acted on in the senate.
The amount of appropriations for
the session will run unusually high,
owing in part to the amount required
to build the isthmian canal. When
Mr. Cannon submitted a general esti­
mate of appropriations a few weeks
ago, lie made the total up to that time
$091,445,000. Sine then the canal "bill
has passed, carrying a ipresent appro­
priation of .$40,000,000 for the fran­
chise. and enough more for the rights
o£ Colombia and for beginning the
work to carry the total up to $."0,000.
000. The entire cost of the undertak­
ing is approximately §184,000,000. Mr.
Cannon's estimate also omitted con­
tracts for future expenditure included
in the Omnibus public building, the
Omnibus claims and various other
bills, aggregating a large amount. This
will carry tihe total for the session,
figuring in these future amounts, al­
most, if not quite, up to the billion
dollar mark. The appropriation bills
have contained little general legisla­
tion, being confined .chiefly to the reg­
ular needs of the various branches of
the government.

lire*©.—"rohkers Statesman,
Wilton, Washburn and Out Lying
Towns Celebrate the Fourth of
July Properly.
Large Crowd From Bismarck Attends
the Celebration of the Day at
Washburn Has a Fine Celebration,
Largely Attended From Surround­
ing Country.
Bismarck passed the Fourth of July
quietly—very quietly. There was no
general celebration in the city. Save
for the occasional pop of a fire crack­
er, the day passed uneventfully. There
were decorations of flags about the
city in honor of the occasion. The ma­
jority of the population of the city at­
tended the celebrations at Wilton and
Washburn. Special trains of the
Washburn road took several hundred
persons north, to celebrate with the
smaller towns.
At Wilton there was a large crowd,
and the city was en fete. Teams from
all farts of the surrounding country
poured into the village, and covered
the prairies about the city for miles.
Aside from these, there was a 'transient
population of several hundred from
Bismarck. Most of the celebrants re­
mained until the last rocket had been
exploded and returned to the city
about 1 o'clock this morning.
The ball game between Wilton and
Bismarck resulted in an easy vk'ory
for Bismarck, the score being IS to
3 when tilie counting stopped.
Aside from the ball game there were
races, gun club shooting, and a bow­
ery dance in the evening, all of which
contributed to the general amuse­
ment. The Bismarck band and or­
chestra furnished -excellent music for
the Wiltonites. and they did the hon­
ors well during the day and evening.
There was excellent weather for the
celebration at Wilton, which began
with the early morning. About l.iiOO
hundred people were present in all.
the train from Bismarck bringing a
large number, estimate dat 500 to 700.
In the forenoon the band gave a con­
cert, and were then taken to the gun
club, grounds, where the shoot -tfas
pulled off. Bismarck sportsmen suc­
ceeded in bringing away a good share
of the money. Henry Richolt took the
greater share of the money, winning
about $3(5 in prices, and that with a
"bum lamp." Had he had two good
eyes he would have taken the whole
purse. Henry Newton took second
money, winning over $20 and B. E.
Jones carried away about $20 in prize
money. Other shots came in for les­
ser amounts.
Dinner was served by Landlord
Book waiter and ihis hotel was taxed to
its capacity. In the afternoon a pro­
gram of races was pulled off, Austin
Logan. W. P. Macomber and other
horsemen seeing to the success of the
program. The ball game was also a
feature in the afternoon. After sup­
per there was a band concert in front
of the hotel, and the Philippine pano­
rama added to 'the list of amusements
for the evening. The bowery dance
was also well attended. A display of
fireworks closed the day's celebration.
who attended found a full
share of enjoyment and Wilton has
reason to be proud of its fii-st general
celebration. Great credit is due to
Mayor Macomber. Jim Wakeman,
Landlord Bookwalier, Fred Oeltjen.
Doc Buttea-field, Simon Jahr and the
others who made the affair a success.
At Washburn another fine celebra­
tion was had. From 1.000 to 1,500
people attended tihe celebration there.
Attorney Gregory made an eloquent
address, and there was a good program
of races. One accident is reported, a
stranger who was riding in one of the
races being seriously injured. His
horse ran into a woven wire fence and
turned a complete somersault with his
rider beneath him. Tihe man was
knocked senseless, and had his shoul­
der dislocated, his arm broken at the
elbow and suffered serious internal in­
juries. it was not believed yesterday
that he could recover.
A ball game was pulled off between
Washburn and Turtle Lake, which was
won by Washburn by a score of 7 to 5.
The game was a first rate article of
ball. "v
Mr. Gregory aays that he never saw
a celebration where there was such
good ordea* maintained. There was no
drunkenness, and good nature and
good feeliBjSi $e leatijrec! ot the
celebfatiom. States Attorney McCui
Joch was on the ground and saw that
everything passed off smoothly.
Several minor celebrations are re­
priced through ..the county. There
were several picnics. At Menoken
the good people of that vicinity cele­
brated. Dr. Bentley made an eloquent
speech, a ball game was played be­
tween McKenzie and Menoken, which
w!as wen by McKenzie. In the evening
there was a dance, which everyone en­
Mrs. E. E. Semling. wife of E. E.
Semling, a well known Bismarck busi­
ness man, died at St. Alexius hospital
at shortly before 7 o'clock this morn­
ing. Mrs. Semling had been ill for
over two weeks with pneumonia, com­
plicated with othdr troubles, and after
a brave battle, succumbed to- the inev­
itable. Sihe was taken ill a little over,
two weeks ago and was taken to the
hospital after a few days illness. There
everything possible was done for her,
but it was. willed that she was not. to
recover. News of her death was a
shoek to a large number of friends,
and- their sympathy goes out abund
anily to the bereaved husband and
three little children who are left to
mourn her death.
Mrs. Semling was. prior to her mar­
riage in this city twelve years ago,
Miss Agnes B. Anderson, and her par­
ents are Mr. and Mrs. Ole Anderson,

death, and she leaves three children^
Eivind, aged 11 Harold, aged 6 and
Esther, aged 4 years. She was born
in Norway, but came to this land with
her parents when still a child.
There will be regret among a large
circle of friends at the death of Mrs.
Semling. who was a loyal and faith­
ful wife and mother, and an earnest
Christian woman, admired by all who
•knew her-.
The funeral -will be held Monday aft­
ernoon at 2:30 o'clock from the Meth­
odist Episcopal church to which place
the body will be taken from the house.

cal order. Degree of Honor, and mem­
ber's of that order will attend the fun

Washington. July The president
has formally declared the restoration
of peace in the Philippine archipelago
and lias placed the islands under com­
plete civil control and has extended
general amnesty to the Filipinos who
have been in rebellion. These three
things marking one of the most im­
portant epochs in Philippine history,
are announced in three separate orders
and prclamations, one by the president
over his own signature, extending m
nesty one through Secretary Root by
the president's order, relieving Gen­
eral Chaffee from his duties as military
governor and a third which takes the
shape of a general order addressed to
the entire army of the United States
in which Secretary Root takes occa­
sion to express the high appreciation
of the work it has accomplished, both
in Cuba and the Philippines.
