interesting visitor this fall in the per
son of Theophlle Delcasse, the former
French minister of foreign affairs who
is a warm admirer of the United

democratic public man in France to
day. Every detail of his appearance,
manner, bearing, habits and his par

dignity of office. The ^subtler graces
and finesse of the diplomat which are
wanting In him he replaces with
natural tact and fine good sense.
Thees qualities were brought Into
strong relief by the Fashoda affair, in

His Former Stand on the State

t. Defeat Early Action.
By G, C. Snyder.
Washington, Junt 9.—The house of
representatives, which has been some
what unruly about statehood matters,
has finally concluded, through its
statehood conferees, to accept the pro
position adopted by the senate during
the last congress, allowing a vote to
be had in Arizona and New Mexico
on the question of jointure at the same
time a vote is cast for state officers,
Nov. 6th. The senate conferee^" agreed
to this arrangement and made a report
to the senate.
Senator Foraker has given notice
that he will oppose the plan and try to
send the bill back to conference in the
hope, no doubt, that the house will
give way so as: to admit Oklahoma
and Indian Territory as one state,
leaving Arizona and New Mexico out
The proposition agreed to by the
conference committee is identical
with the amendment offered by Mr.
Foraker in the last congress and ac
cepted by the senate, and his op
position .to/ it now Is a great surprise
to many. By some it Is believed that
Mr. Foraker prefers to embarass the
house and the president rather than
to accept his own amendment of a
Senator Hansbrough, who has all
along opposed the house bill, says the
agreement of the conferees in favor
of the old Foraker amendment is a
fair one and that he will vote to adopt
the report If the report is defeated,
inthe senate the house will feel that
lt:has been snubbed beyond endurance,
and it Is not likely again to proffer
the olive branch. The result mAy be
that there will be no action on state
hood at this session, and the whole
matter will go over to. next winter.

that up to 11 o'clock, owing to high
winds in Montana, wire conditions

formation concerning the trains which
are held up by floods could be ob

trains are held up by high water, no
injury had been done to any of the
trains, and aside from the inconven
ience of being, delayed the passengers
are comfortable and we are taking
care of them there.
"We had a washout east of Glen
dive, Mont., and got that, repaired and
another on Hart river, east of Bell
field and we fixed that up when the
water rose and flooded about two
miles of our track. Now It is simply
a case of wait until the rain stops and
the water will go down very quickly
as it will drain off. It has been rain
ing hard out in Montana for three
weeks and the ground has had more
rain than it could absorb and flooded
us out. The Great Northern officials
say their reports show that the weath
er has cleared and a number of small
washouts will be repaired today. They
expect the line to be open this after
