WASHINOTON, Jan. 23.—'The senate committee on foreign relations will hold a meeting in the morning, when it is ex pected the Samoan question will be taken up and diseussed at length, with a view of making a report to the senate. Mr. Sewall, in his testimony, criticises se verely the conduct of the state depart ment on the Samoan question. The re sult of the meeting will probably be the reporting to the senate of a resolution condemnatory to the attitude and non action of the state department. From conversations with members of the com mittee'and others, the United Press is alrifr to give a full synopsis of the testi mony of Consul General Sewall. Mr. Sewall was before the sub-committee of the fw'g" relations committee four timn» In his examination Mr. Sewall IMHAW! at length to the situation of the their commercial value, etc. then quoting from the report made by Mr. Bates, of Delaware, commissioner of the the United States to the Samoan islands, he told of the status before he went out as consul general in June, 1887. Of the character of the natives he said they were a peaceable, law-abiding peo ple, and all Christians, and he bore testi mony to the excellent work of the mis sionaries on the islands. He said, fur ther, that the natives of the islands were very favorably impressed with the atti tude of the United States toward their country when the existing treaty was negotiated, and .he expressed re gret that the treaty should ever have been negotiated, since, as he said, the attitude of the United States toward them had not been maintained and they had been made to suffer for it. Mr. Sewall quoted extensively from corres pondence between him and the state de partment from the time of his arrival, showing that the British consul had been acting with the Germans for three years, and he expressed the opinion freely that there was an arrangement between the two governments by which Great Britain was to keep her hands off in this iight. His understanding, he said, had always been that the German government, under this arrangement, was to take possession of Samoa, the British govern ment of the Tonga islands, and that eventually Great Britain was to come into possession of Hawaii. He said he believed that if these operations were not checked they would soon extend to Hawaii, which is tp be the northern rest ing place of the cable between Vancou ver and New Zealand. WHY PHELPS COME HOMES. The British Begin to Understand That Grover Cun Resent a Diplomatic Af front. NEW YORK, Jan. 34.—The Tribune's London special says: The American minister Monday afternoon had his last official interview with Lord Salisbury at the foreign office. I imagine, therefore, the British foreign minister now under stands that the departure of Mr. Phelps from England at this moment is not due to the fact that a Republican president will be inaugurated next March. Lord Salisbury knows that Mr. Phelps would, naturally, have remained here another two months. The foreign office people know it too, and they know that Mr. Phelps goes home because the British legation at Washington is vacant. This useful knowledge will graduauy niter down into the general British mind. It will be understood here by the time Mr. Phelps steps on board the steamer at Southampton that the diplomatic affront offered the American government by Lord Salisbury has been resented in the correct diplomatic way. Mr. Phelp's conduct throughout this difficult business has been, so far as an outsider has means of judging, energetic in more directions. He has shown fairness and courage. He appreciated the deli cacy of the situation from the beginning of the Sackville incident, and he has never, I think, varied in liis view of what ought to be done. Americans have to thank him for his unflinching insistance upon an American view. Americans in London sincerely regret his going, and none more so than those who have urged it as the only means by which the Amer ican government coula express its opin ion of Lord Salisbury's conduct. J. O. Nelms, of Calhoun, Ga., ha* been found to be a bigamist five times over. He is now in jail. iZiSteiSsf WORK OF CONQRE88. The Senate.

During tigs consideration by the house of the sundry civil bill amendments were adopted appropriating $50,000 for repairs to the Chicago custom house, and appro priating $15,000 to establish a refuge station at Point Barrow, Alaska, and $0,000 for the payment of labor on the public building at Frankfort, Ky. Dakota Legislators. BISMARCK, Dak., Jan. 23.—The legis lature received a special message from the governor calling attention ito a de ficit in the treasury of $124,494.51, and requesting the appointment of a joint committee to confer with him. He says the matter can be easily remedied, and lays a portion of the blame on the pre vious administration. The present tax ation for territorial pnrposes is only 2 4-10 mills, while the law allows 3, ana to reach this maximum limit will prob ably be the remedy applied. The house passed the bill extending the time for the payment of taxes of 1888, under a suspension of the rules. It also passed the bill reimbursing the own ers of stock in Oliver county condemned to death by the board of health. The judiciary committee reported favorably the Elliott bill for a North Dakota con stitutional convention and it was referred to a special committee consisting of all members from districts north of the sev enth standard parallel. A communica tion from the governor stated that the bill appropriating funds for the James town asylum, approved by him March 15,1887, was in proper form, but fur has no ther than this he I recollection.

MASON CITY, Iowa, Jan. 24.—Co-opera tive associations among farmers of Iowa are rapidly springing into existence. In the articles of agreement they are pro viding for carrying on all branches of mercantile business, grain and stock buying, etc. It is generally understood among the members that they agree to patronise exclusively, if possible, their own establishment. The one organized recently in Franklyn, Ohio, has ninety members and the list is rapidly increas ing.

Graham as super intendent of the Dakota division of the Northern Pacific, and although rather a young man for such an important posi tion, he has shown executive ability that will yet place him higher in the management of this great transcontinental railroad. Mao has a host of friends all along the line who will ever be glad to learn of his success. Mrs. Sam Mathews gave a private card party in the parlors of the Occidental, last Thursday, in honor of her guest,Mrs. J. M. Graham.

New Rockford Transcript: Jack Don ohue, a somewhat noted character in this part of Dakota, gave Sheriff Daley the slip Saturday, and is now rusticating in greener fields and pastures new. He was being held on a charge of obtaining money under false pretenses, awaiting a session of district court. He was allowed some liberties and last Saturday took advantage of them so successfully that his whereabouts are now unknown. Jack has had something of a checkered career. A few years ago he married the widow of one of the soldiers who was killed in the Custer massacre. The lady had some money the greater part of which he soon, squandered. Report has it that she gave him four hundred dollars five years ago with which to go to Jamestown and pur chase a team and farm supplies. The first heard of him after starting on that trip was that he had gone to Ireland and enlisted in the army. His faithful wife, still true to him, secured his discharge and brought him back to Dakota. Not long, however, after his return she had positive evidence of his unfaithfulness by finding him living at Bismarck with an other woman, for which he "did time" in the Bismarck penitentiary. Since then she has rightly repudiated him, and he is now dodging the vigilance of the law. Editor Maddux of the New Rockford Transcript, made this office a pleasant call last eyening. Having demolished his rival, the New Era, for the present in his last issue, he is taking his wife for a few weeks trip to his home in Wabash, Ind., accompanied by Miss Hattie Patch. He intends to visit Indianapolis in the course of his trip, and if asked will give Gen. Harrison the benefit of his advice upon the make-up of his cabinet so that the question of Mr. Blaine holding office may be expected to be settled in the course of a few weeks. Wheatland Eagle: The gentleman why had been off for a fishing excursion and sent a paragraph to the local paper saying that "Mr. Jones has sent home a fine mess of speckled beauties," could not account for his warm reception from his wife until he heard that Mr. ones had "been fined and sent home for a mess with some freckled beauties," and then he went for the newspaper man with a rod. Tom Ware, who sold out his hardware business at New Rockford last New Years, went west this morning on a trip to Bismarck. If Tom should attend a session of the legislature during his visit Tom Lowry of Huron, will have to abandon his proud position as the hand somest man on the floor. During the absence of Charley Mad dux in Indiana, his place as editor-in chief of the New Rockford Transcript will be occupied by Harley J. Miner, though any one would suppose that it would be a "physical" impossibility for him to fill the vacant chair. The warm weather having melted the snow has made the sidewalks slippery in places, which acoounts for a young gen tleman trying to knock a hole in the side walk with the back of his head on Front street last night.

The W. G. T. U. Meeting which was to have been at Mrs. Bennitt's last Satur day, was not held. The ladies were all ready and waiting for the gentleman who was to take them over, but he did not come, consequently they stayed at home. It will hardly be safe for him to show up around here for awhile. While Mrs. Lyman was out driving with a sled a few days ago, the singletree struck the horse's heels, frightening it so it started to run. She hung on and finally crawled out of the sled and after plowing up the snow a few rods suc ceeded in stopping her team. No injur ies to any except a few bruises on the horse's heels. SPIRITWOOD.
