Wawiisgtojj, March 2. The senate
deficiency agriculture appropriation bills
and thelast of the general appropriation
bills were reported to the senate this
. 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
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

structed with particular reference to
prompt and economical conversion into
auxiliary naval cruisers. Compensation

route for each outward voyage; third
class $1 per mile ; fourth class two-thirds
dollars per mile. '

FKOJI THE EMPEROR'S HOME.
What is Hald by Those Prominent In
German Conrt Circles.
Bkulin, Feb. 28. 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

Director-General Davis for
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. It is said that nothing is
lacking to complete the plan unless it is
the consent of Colonel Davis. On this
point Davis and others will not talk. It
is asserted that seven democrats have
pledged Davis their votes, thereby insur
ing his election. .When Davis s name
was mentioned as a possible mayoralty
candidate this morning he said he was
practically out of politics.

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.
