MATTERS IN CONGRESS The Associated Press Spends all its Energies on a Double Sized Re - . -port. The Crew of the Wrecked Iowa Safe . in Sew ;York-A Patient in Sari : Francisco Cured by Lymph. - ConirreHlonal rrocdlng. Wawiisgtojj, March 2. The senate deficiency agriculture appropriation bills and thelast of the general appropriation bills were reported to the senate this morning. . . The senivte defeated - the - free ship amendment offered by Vest by a party vote. The house amendment for postal subsidies was agreed to. In the house the senate amendments to the Indian appropriation bill was non considered and the bill was sent back to the conferees. The conference reported on bill to repeal the timber culture law was agreed to. Manderson, of Nebraska, has been elected presiding officer pro torn of the senate, succeeding Ingalls. Some misunderstanding has developed as to the fate of the Pacific cable vote. The house did not indicate any antag onism toward the cable bill itself, but simply to the senate's amendment raising the subsidy from " $150,000 for fifteen years to (250,000 for fourteen years. Conference report will be made and the amount undoubtedly will he agreed upon at $150,000 as originally passed by the house. v . . The senate bill passed granting the Missoula and , Northern railroad com pany right-of-way through the Flathead Indian reservation in Montana. The most important change made by the senate committee in the general deficiency appropriation bill, reported today, was an addition to the French spoliation claims carrying an appropria tion of $1,304,000 with provision in case of bankruptcy of the original sufferers, awards shall be made on-behalf of next of kin instead of assignees. The conference committee on the copy right bill have reached an agreement ancKrXprt to rendft'a bill 'today on the measure. As it comes from the' confer ence it will contain the Sherman amend ment (all owing persons to import for eign books at ordinary rate duty) with I a slight amendment. The changes has also been made in the "Lithographer's ' amendment so as to confine operations cf this section to lithographers of chromos and photographs. Just as it appeared that the final agreement had been reached by the con ference committee on the copyright bill, a new complication arose and the fate of the measnre is still uncertain. The amendment proposed by' senate con ferees was found to be unacceptable to the house managers, who now insist up on abandonment of the entire provision. The post office subsidy hill received its final action in congress and now goes to the president for his signature. The provisions of the bill are in substaence aa follows : The post master general is authorized to contract with the lowest responsible bidder for a term of not less than five or more than ten years with American citizens for conveying the mail on American steamships between parts of the United States and foreign points excluding Canada. Vessels are be American ;built-ship, owned and officered by American citizens and crew to be composed of American citizens as far as possible. The vessels are to be constructed after j the latest and most approved types divided into four classes. Vessels of the first, second and third classes to be con structed with particular reference to prompt and economical conversion into auxiliary naval cruisers. Compensation to be paid for mail service as follows : First class $4 per mile, second class $2 per mile by the shortest practicable route for each outward voyage; third class $1 per mile ; fourth class two-thirds dollars per mile.

The emperor's wrath at the failure of the visit of the Empress Frederick to Paris to establish some sort of good feeling between Ger many and, -has France, has fallen upon both Chancellor von Cftprivi and Count von Munster, the German ambassador at Paris upon the former for advising the trying of the experiment, and upon the latter for assenting to the prolonged stay of the empress and her fatally in discreet visit to Versailles. Notwith standing the semi-official French denial, M. Heri.iette, the French embassador here, was consulted prior to the emperor giving his consent to the -empress mak ing the journey. Court official here af firm that the chancellor mentioned the empress' desire of her personal aims and the probable period of her stay to Her bette a fortnight before she started. The emperor appears to charge the chancel lor and minister with misinforming him as to what the result of the visit would probably be. Herbette, who was prob ably instructed by the French foreign minister, Ribot, informed the chancellor yesterday that he desired to express per sonally to the emperor his regrets at the manner tne empress had been treated. The emperor replied that he did not wish to hold any unofficial conversation on the subject, which would be per sonally paintul to himself and lierbette. This is interpreted in official circles as a desire to obtain from the French govern ment some form of satisfaction for the treatment accorded his mother. There are rumors that Caprivi will be ousted and Munster recalled. Herbette will probably soon return to France. So soon as the emperor precieved a crisis was impending, he sent for Waldersee, with whom he had a long conference, aiterwaras consulting with Miguel. ENGLAND MUCH CONCERNED. What the London Papers Say of the - Situation in the Dominion. IjOkdox, neb. 28. ihe newspapers devote much space to the Canadian situ ation, and betray a good deal of anxiety as to the result of the campaign. The matter also receives attention in connec tion with the meeting of the Australian federation conference next week. The organ of the imperial federation move ment says that it is impossible to over state the importance of the outcome in Canada. It concerns Great Britain's future fully as much as it does that of Canada, and in this view of the case the paper argues that in the event of Sir John Macdonald's return, means must be devised to render a similar crisis im- poesible i the future. The xonserva tives ai e endeavoring to manufacture i little public sentiment against Gladstone by criticising his action in purchasing the advowson or the rectorate or Liver pool, for which he paid 12,000. The St. James Gazette declares that the tran saction is an indecent one for Gladstone after his position in the Welsh disestab lishment debate, and hints the benefit will be bestowed upon Mr. Drew, son-in law oi Gladstone, ihe criticism is gen erally regarded as unjust, in view of the fact that when in office Gladstone was notably free of taint from nepotism while Salisbury is almost as notable the other wav. TO BREAK THK ILLINOIS LOCK. Director-General Davis for His Friends. Senator by Chicago, Feb. 28. The Evening Journal states that Chairman Jones, of the republican state central committee and a number of republican members of the legislature, are in the city endeavor ing to complete an arrangement by which it is intended the republican party will take up Director-General Davis, of the world's fair, as its candidate for United States senator.

The house committee on agriculture has decided to place at the disposal of the secretary of agriculture $15,000 to be expended in making an investigation into the diseases of fruit in California. So reads a news item going the rounds. Such action by congress is pleasing to every fruit grower in California. If the right men are appointed and the work in r properly done it will be of great value. ' But why California alone? Are there no other states and territories on thin coast which do, and will, grow immense quantities of fruits that need the assist ance of the government much more than California? California should have the pride, ability and means to care for her own frait, tree and vine diseases, and to look after her ever increasing army of noxious and aggressive bugs. With the newer states of Oregon, ', Washington, Nevada and Arizona it is different. These have been recently set tled by people who have no knowledge of the diseases and insects peculiar to this coast. Therefore they should he in cluded in the territory covered by the appropriation. Of course, an investiga tion of California fruit diseases would benefit the whole coast. The appropri ation should be favored by all. As "half a loaf is better than no bread" it would not be good policy to interfere when con gress makes a move to help the fruit grower. Let them have their say now, for when the ice is once broken we can all get what we want. The Kest Fertiliser. The following is by Professor Hilgard. of the California State University: By far the most convenient, and at present certainly the cheapest and moat available source of nitrogen at command of the farmer, is Chile saltpetre, which contains about 16 per cent, of nitrogen, in its most effective form. From 150 to 200 pounds per acre is the usual dose; more than this will not be used by the c-op plants in one season, and a surplus is likely to be washed out of the soil by the winter rains. Moreover, an exces sive application might result in too much wood and too little fruit, and that fruit of a sappy, flavorless charac ter, though of large size. C , , J- - ' . ... S most available source of nitrogen'obtain able in commerce: a good commercial ar- ' tide contains twenty per cent, and over, of nitrogen. It does not,' however, act. quite as rapidly as the Chile saltpetre. To the citrus growers, then, who at present appear to be most concerned about the fertilizer question, I would say that, well cured stable and sheep corral manure apart, their best resort at present is the commercial phosphates and superphosphates of high honest grade, mixed, either by themselves or by the manufacturer, with a proper pro portion of Chile saltpetre or ammonia sulphate, and generally no potash what ever. Pecans Will Pay. The Pecan should be largely plant everywhere on the Western slope, where it does finely. The tree is hardy, very handsome, a great bearer, and the nuts always 'command a good price. It suc ceeds as far north as Illinois, and should be hardy even in Western Washington and Oregon. For cold winter climates nuts for planting should be obtained from trees near their northern natural limit. The, best -Texas and Louisiana varieties would be hardy in California.
