Feature ot Altlrieh Bill Slaking Them Basis of Circulation Weakens Measure ALDRICH SAYS IT WILL PASS Opponents Say Otherwise and That Author is Afraid to Press It to a ^Vote— May Pass in Ten Days—Fate of Bill in the House More Uncer tain. (Special Washington Correspondence) "Washington, March 9.—Senator Aid rich is not forcing a vote on the cur rency bill which bears his name, he explains, because he wants to get it ironed out to a condition in which all 'the republicans will vote for it. Senator Aldric.h is not pressing for a vote on the bill, its opponents say, because he hasn't votes enough in sight to pass it. The difference is a striking one. That the bill will finally pass is generally (believed by those who have made the most careful study of the situation. It is known that a consid erable number of senators will vjtc to strike out of the bill the provision al lowing railroad bonds to be used as a basis of circulation. It has been claimed that enough of the republicans are in this attitude to make this feat ure much the weakest in the meas ure. The real question is whether, after this provision is voted on, th-2 bill will command enough votes to pass it. The Impression is that the 'bill will be much stronger than this particular provision, which while earnestly de sired by its friends, is not essential. 'Sen's Heytourn, Brown, Borah, War ner, LaFollette, Nelson, Hansbrough and some others are placed in various lists as opposed to the railroad bond pro vision. Most of those named, prob ably all of them, would vote against the bill if this provision were retained in the measure. But there are some democrats who would vote for the 'bill in any case, tho it is doubted if any democrat will vote to keep in it the provision to use the railroad bonds. Senator Aldrich has been squarely todd by two or three republican sena tors that tf he should urge a vote now his bill would fail. He has laughed at them, and is confident that they are mistakeri. He expects to pass it, prob ably about ten days hence Its fate in the house is much more uncer tain. Martin "W. Littleton of Xeff York who was chairman of the convention which four years ago named Alton B. Parker for president, has been in Washington this week, and he talked just a little bit of politics. Mr. Little ton, In this year of grace, isn't taking much part in the great gam.. He can see that Bryan is going to be nomin ated, and that people of the conserva tive persuasion have small chance to be taken seriously' But Mr. Littleton none the less hn« a new idea of the issue. He says it will be: "Who said it first?" The republicans will say that Roosevelt said it first: the democrats will insist that Bryan did. And that will be the real point in controversy. If the republicans nominate a man who can't make any claim to having said dt first, of course they will le at a disadvantage to that extent. The late Senator Proctor of Vermont There was once, at least, when his oratory was really the thunder of Jove from Olympus. That was when he made the great speech which did so much to precipitate the war with Spain. He had been in Cuba investi gating on his own account, .ft has been the privilege of few men to make speeches that caused more momentous things than that speech which told o* what he saw in Cuba. And they do say that the bigness of the voice that seemed fairly to make the capitol tremble to its foundations, had much to do with the effect. The newest senator is Frank B. Gary of South Carolina, just elected by the legislature of that state to suc ceed the Ashbury C. Latimer. Mr. Gary wilj probably be sworn in early next week, having just been elected. The new senator will be another concession to the latter-day rules of sending young men to the upper cham bers. He is about 45 years old. but he has had a considerable political ex perience. and is of one of the oldest and best known families in the state. The Gary family dates back to revolu tionary and colonial times, and in its veins run some of the iinest strains of patriot blood of that era. The prom fact that General Mortimer Oary, one of the leaders in the movement to re deem the state from black rule, was an uncle of the senator-elect that Jus tice Kugene B. Gary is his brother: and that Judge Ernest Gary is another brother. The senator-elect is of the radical— at least, of th«- progressive—type of public men. He has seen a good deal of the sort of public service which best fit men for senatorial work, having been for six years speaker of the low er house of the South Carolina legisla ture. He was one of the leaders of liat body 3Pg. was probably the richest man 1n tho railroad running down into Chile and senate he was probahly the biggest physically, for he was of immense stature and beyond question he had the biggest voice in congress. Senator Proctor's whisper was big enough to fillva forty-acre field with out even a barbed-wire fence around it. His ordinary conversational tone sounded like a railroad train going in every sense, and the rec ord he made there earned him the elec tion to the senate. Morover, he Is a ."•lose friend and a longtime supporter •f Senator Tillman. He is expected to be a strong working member oC the senate. He is a lawyer by profession and an excellent one, as well as a powerful public speaker. The Briggs Churn. (New York Journal) It was a problem worthy of Briggs' tact which met him when he came home one afternoon. It was soon after they had bought the cow and had in stalled it in the little shed near the flat. A boy had fed and milked the an imal, and Mrs. Briggs reveled in th' work of taking care of the milk, which she designated "the butterfly." The crowning stroke of all was the churn. This she kept as a surprise for Briggs, who had demurred to her plan to make butter. On this afternoon Briggs noted a slight redness about the eyes of his usually smiling and happy wife. lie kissed her and, pursuing his usual plan, affected not to notice anything unusual. While they were at dinner he talked about the commonplace things. Whist ling, he went into his tiny library for a postprandial smoke. Soon a timid knock came on the door. "May come in'.'" asked his wife, looking in with a half smile. "One moment," exclaimed Briggs. He sprang to the door and solemnly as sumed the position of a ticket taker. "Ticket, please," he said, and calmly kissed his wife. She smiled up at him "Ah, Watson," pursued Mr. Briggs, "I perceive the lady has a pretty dim ple in her right cheek. From this I deduce the fact that an angel kissed her there, just where I now kiss her. Simple, very simple. But. stop. I see she has been spoiling two lovely eyes with tears. Watson, mark my word, something lias gone wrong." It took some urging on the part of Briggs to get his wife to tell him about it. Finally she admitted having bought the churn. "You know, dear, you never did like the butter we buy, and so I .thought I might just as well churn some myself, since we got the cow." "And wouldn't it churn, dear?" "I worked all the morning and half the afternoon and it looks just the same now as It did when I began." "We shall sec about this," said Briggs, determinedly. "1 was brought up on a farm, and I'll look into the •matter. Perhaps the churn is no good." They went to "the buttery." Briggs lifted the dasher from the churn. "The cream looks rather thin," he said. "Oh, that isn't cream," said Mrs. Briggs. "That's milk. I asked the boy about churning, and ho told me to skim the crea-m off. So did." Briggs struggled with his feelings for a moment. "T 'think, dear, we better try cream butter. It is much better and far easier to make than milk butter. We always make the cream kind on the farm. Mother wouldn't bother with milk but ter. Of course, milk butter has its ad vocates, but I don't believe much in it." "I think I'll try the cream kind next time," said Mrs. Briggs. "And I know I can make better butter than the horrid stuff we buy." "Of course you can. my dear," said the tactful Briggs." The Great Wall of the Andes. (Scribner's) The wall of the Andes begins at the Caribean and runs all the way down the western edge of South America until it trails off into the Antarctic like a jagged dragon's tail. It is a very ihigh wall and a very wide one—some times scores and sometimes hundreds of miles across—and except in a few places all but impassable. There is the Oroya railroad in Central Peru, the highest in tlie world, which iwill take you from the drowsy tropical coast at breakfast time, and by early afternoon set you on the roof of the divide, shiv ering and breathing fast, 15,500 feet above the sea. There is a railroad up to Lake Titicaca from Mollendo, in 'southern Peru, wihioli Grosses )the shoulder of the Andes at an altitude about 1.000 feet lower and there Is a tiie coast from Bolivian plateau. The only railroad highway which crosses the continent, however, is that which climbs the Chilean mountains to the •pass of Uspallata and runs thence across the pampa to Buenos Aires. Some day tails will be a thru line from sea to sea, and In a dozen OP more places tunnel gangs are nibbling under over ithe switches of a country siding! the upper Cordillera but now It is when it was late and in a hurry. His open only during the summer, and oratorical tones when he occasionally turned them loose drowned the thun der and when he got really excited he sounded like the voice of thunder. even then the fourteen kilometers over the Cuanbre. or summit of the pass, must be made by stage. In winter no attempt is made to cross, and from Mendoza. in the Argentine foothills, over to Los Andes on the Chilean side —about 150 miles—t.he road is closed. The Amies in these parts rise to ap palling heights, tihe loftiest of which is Aconagua's 24,000 feet, a.nd the pass itself is not far from 13,000—3,900 met res, to ibe exact.

TO TAP HIDDEN STREAMS If Federal Project Is Successful Other Sections of Dry Great Plains May Be Similarly Treated—Local Indus tries Already Encouraged. The experimental application of an irrigation project of the government reclamation service—one which, should it prove its worth in the one instance, will be of Importance to the rich, but as yet unfertile valleys of the great plains—will be possible near Garden City. Kan., next spring, according to the estimates of the engineers in charge of the work, says a Garden City correspondent of the Kansas City Star. To reclaim the abundant acreage of this section of Kansas, unproductive through the lack of water at the very season when moisture is most essential to the raising of the crops, the govern ment is now arranging for the installa tion of complex system of pumps and wells destined to supply from subter ranean springs and streams in excess of 10,000,000.000 gallons of water for the Irrigation of the adjacent country each season. Since the early days of Kansas this western section had been considered next to worthless and barren because of this very lack of water, which It Is now planned to overcome by tapping the supply which is found in the grav el deposits uuder the great plains at no great depth. 'Ilhe original settlers of the lands In Kansas found that they had taken up claims not worth their pains. They returned east or south whence they had couie. Their mort gages lapsed, and small and large cap italists as far away as New England found themselves interested in arid Kansas prairie which held forth not eveu the most vague promise of fu ture fecundity. The land had lain In disuse and disrepute through decades until the development of the sugar beet Industry with the aid of irriga tion. some years npo. again drew at tention to the practically deserted sec tion. Now the government purposes, by tapping these hidden streams of much needed moisture, pumping It to the sur face and spreading out over great areas, to transform what was discard ed of the first settlers into a new land of desire for the farmer of the west. Naturally a good deal of public inter est in many sections of the country attaches itself to the success or failure of the projected work, more so in vlev of the eastern held mortgages and the probability of the application of similar methods in oilier localities in the event of the successful operation of the Gar den City 6chome. The reclamation service plans to utilize some of the water in the Ar kansas valley, and Its plans are unique and unusual. To bring the water to the surface a series of wells has been bored, the aggregate length of which is more than four miles, and pumps which were purchased from Buffalo are to be Installed. The project will have 230 wells, varying lu depth from 40 to 300 feet and sunk in groups of ten wells, with one pump installed for each group. These welis vary from twelve to fifteen Inches lu diameter, and it is estimated that each group will yield G.IiSO gallons per minute un der a fifteen foot head. Each pump ing station is connected by auction pipes to a No. 9 vertical centrifugal pump driven by a twenty-fivp horse power vertical motor. The twenty three stations will be operated from a central power plant, run by electricity, generated by steam power. During the Irrigation season this pumping system will lift 30,000 acre feet, or 10,775,000,000 gallons. The big ditch which Is to carry the vast supply of water to the district to be irrigated la, along with other de tails of the arrangement, under pres ent process of coustruction. From this main channel the hundreds of branch lines which will in turn feed the individual ditches are to go forth. The government's work has already proved a stimulus to the settlement of the district and to private enterprise already in Garden City. There has been a jump In land values since the inauguration of the work, and pros pects are that the eastern money In vested in the original mortgages will yet bring a fair return. H0USEB0ATING ON BIG SCALE. Idea Which May Grow Into an Exten sive and Profitable Industry. An enterprising sea captain of Fal mouth, England, has hit upon a plan by which people who desire to enjoy sea life without assuming the risks of an ocean voyage can be accommodated with profit, says the Milwaukee Even ing Wisconsin. He is looking for an obsolete ocean liner, which ho intends to deprive of her power plant in order to secure more room and convert the ship Into a floating hotel. The idea is to keep the ship at anchor off Falmouth arid provide for the comfort of 150 or more passengers on an ocean trip that is limited by the length of the anchor chain and the swing of the ship. Amusements will be organized on board, boating and fishing parties will be arranged, and those who take to sea life of this kind will be provided with diverti semen ts sufficient to take their minds from the fact that they are at anchor all the time. It is estimated that all this can be done at a profit for charges somewhat lower than those of first class hotels ashore. Ilouaeboating on a large scale might appeal to Investors on the great lakes. A large st-.amt moored yfcly in .9 harbor like that formed by the break water at Milwaukee would be «n at tractive floating hotel, on which land lubbers could take an imaginary lake voyage without running the risks of seasickness or delays by storms. A ho tel at anchor in the bay would be "far from the madding crowd," yet near enough at all times to enable a mer chant to drop ashore for a few hours' business each day. It would be a quiet, dustless and smokeless place in which to pass the hot weeks of mid summer. GALLANT UNCLE JOE. Speaker Cannon Tells Pretty Students Why He Opposes Woman Suffrage. Speaker Cannon of the house of rep resentatives recently received one of the most beautiful clusters of Ameri can Beauties he ever saw at least that Is what he told them when they were ushered into his room at the capitol to be Introduced to the "next presi dent," says a Washington special dis patch to the New York Times. There were twenty in the cluster, or, to be more accurate, in the "bevy." They were students at the Martha Washing ton seminary In Washington and came from almost as many states, including Maryland. Arkansas, Texas, Georgia, Tennessee, New York and Virginia, and, luckiest of all, one came from Illi nois. And maybe the little Illinois maiden didn't blush. Uncle Joe plied her with questions about her people and her life In Washington. Fie said nice things to the othors, too, but before they left he took a rap at woman suffrage. "I appreciate the great honor you have paid me," he said. "However, I rather doubt whether you young ladles from Georgia, Texas. Virginia, Arkan sas and other states In the south really want to see me elected. No, I am op posed to woman suffrage, and I'll tell you why. Pretty women like you would always control two votes—your own and some man's.'',, .The girls blushed. "Now, I can tell," continued the speaker. "I only have to look into your eyes when they light up that way to be sure that each of you would de termine how some man wonld vote." A DIPLOMAT'S FOREIGN POST. 8tory Told of Charles Emory Smith's Appointment to Russia. Charles Emory Smith, editor and diplomat, ex-minister to Russia and ex postmaster general, who died recently in Philadelphia, ranked high with men of affairs, says the Denver Depubiicau. He was counted among the ablest men that surrounded President McKinley. Mr. Smith admired the talent and the political sagacity of the- late Senator Quay, but there were times when he could not work in harmony with the senior senator from Pennsylvania. Thereby haugs a story which Mr. Smith did not hesitate to tell on him self. After Quay's successful manage ment of the Harrison campaign in 1888 he took front rank with the pow erful party men in Washington. After General Harrison had completed his cabinet and was casting about for suit able men to represent the United States at the foreign capitals he con ceived the idea of tendering the posi tion of United States minister—now ambassador—to St. Petersburg to Mr. Smith. He mentioned the matter to his secretary of state, James G. Blaine, and that gentleman cordially agreed that it would be a desirable appoint ment. The administration was In its honeymoon, and the president did not desire to make a nomination that would be distasteful to Senator Quay, •o Mr. Blaine was selected to sound Colonel Quay. "Senator," said the secretary, "you know Charles Emory Smith?" "Yes," was the reply, "very well." •Would you care if he received a foreign appointment?" "No." was the quick reply "the for eigner the letter." So Mr. Smith went to St. Petersburg. NEW JAPANESE BAYONET. Weapon For the Army Is More Deadly Than the Old One. The new Japanese pattern bayonet for the army, orders for which are about to be placed, is to be exactly five inches longer than the present bayonet, which is one foot in length, says a special cablegram (ran 9 1903 xuctnh Tokyo to the Washington Star. With the new bayonet Infantrymen will be afforded a thrusting length approximately of sixty-one and one-half Inches instead of fifty-six and one-half Inches, as at present. The new weapon will have a slight ly tapered point and a cutting fore edge. At the back it will have a broad, flat edge, and between the back and the fore edge it will be deeply grooved. The cross guard will on one side have a deeply curved or hooked terminal, which will facilitate the operation of "piling arms." Change In Hospitality. "It is strange," sighed the blue eyed girl, "how quickly even your best friends will learu to regard you with suspicion. Take my case, for exam ple. When I boarded and had to pay for all my meals whether I ate them in the boarding house or not I had a standing Invitation at several places to drop in any time for dinner. My friends knew I wouldn't save any thing by partaking of their hospital ity, and they always were urging me to come. "But now everything is changed. I eat out now and pay for each meal as I get it: consequently all those stand ing invitations have been tacitly but none the less unmistakably recalled. The fact that I am saving tho price of a dinner every time 1 eat with them makes my friends think I am trying to economize at their expense. I am just as cheerful a goest now as for merly, I dou't eat any more and am not a bit more trouble, bat I find that not even my closest friends want to feel that they are being used for a good thing."—New York Press. v- t' V' f- .- ... Duties Planned to Be Performed By New York Corps ot Dog Cops TO PATROL POSTS WITH MEN Clever Animals Taught to Trip Up Suspicious Persons on the Run. They Know Bad Men From Good Nearly Every Time. If you are running for a car In the Bronx section of New York at 3 o'clock In the morning and a muzzled dog looking like a cross between a collie and a bull terrier barks at you, one of the best things to do Is to stop. You will stop anyway, willy nllly, and probably at tide cost of a bruised shin, for the dog belongs to the new canine police squad, and the first thing he does when he sees a suspicious looking person on the run is to dash la be tween his legs and send him on his collar bone. This Is because It's the first rule in tbe code book of the new canine patrol squad No. 1, N. Y. P. D.. says the New York Sun. The new squad of police dogB Is fully trained, and there always will be this insurance against their biting a piece out of a respectable citizen under the impression that he Is a second story man—they can't. Each doggie cop is so muzzled that he can drink water, bark vehemently a.nd have his nose petted, but cannot eat poisoned meat from some false friend. Inadvertently chew up the pillars of society or accept bologna from a butcher who- wants to keep open after hours. The dogs have been in training for their duties since they were brought over from Ghent, Belgium, a few months ago. These dogs of this half collie half mastiff breed have been used In police work for years with good results. Third Deputy Commis sioner Arthur Woods determined to get some dogs to use In the outlying precincts of New York to fight the summer epidemics of attacks on chil dren aud help oc.t the police with t?".c long beats all the year aronnd. He at first thouuht of bloodhounds, but these ill .1 not .eem practicable. At the suggestion of Robert L. Bacon, a son of the iw:. i:.uit secretary of state, Mr. Woods sent Lieutenant George R. Wakefield over to Belgium to look at the police dogs of Brussels, Ghent and other cities. Wakefield liked the meth ods of Ghent best, bought four Ghent puppies and au English Airedale to ex periment with and brought them over. Since then three policemen have been having the time of their lives playing with the dcggles. Wakefield and Pa trolmen Charles Beerman and Miles McDonald are the lucky cops whose daily job has been to go to South Washington park and train five f'olie- some pups how to be good policemen. One of the Belgians quickly showed that he would never make a cop and was stricken from the probationary list. The squad have been taught one thing at a time. First came obedience to orders like "Come to heel," "After him, boy," and the like. Next came knowing a policeman in uniform and always working with the uniform. More difficult than this was learning to distinguish a policeman's whistle from other whistles. Now the dogs will pick out a policeman's every time and run in Its direction. Another accomplishment these four footed Dogberrys are now up on is that of paying no more attention to a fusillade of revolver bullets than a tried retriever pays to a volley of bird •hot. The highwayman test is another one. The part of the highwayman is taken by the man who has been feed ing the do?s and with whom ordinary dogs would be friendly. Strange cop walks up, with Fido cop trotting obediently at heels. Out springs Mr. Highwayman and falls upon strange cop. Fldo cop realizes at once that It Is a case of being true to either duty or his dinner. Hesitate'.' Not he. One glance at the blue uni form of his friend, and to his assist ance he flies. Mr. Highwayman natu rally J- and out. W' would happen If fhe quondftm high wayman failed to perform his function of handing out dinner the next time the Fido cop and he iriet was not re vealed at police headquarters. The dogs will be sent out with Indi vidual policemen, the man holding his partner in leash. When in the middle of his beat, which the dog has already been made familiar with so that be knows it as a beat of his own, doggie Is released and chases himself on his duties. lie scours fields and runs through alleys, has a look at cellar doors, and when he sees anything sus picious barks like a good fellow. The cop runs up. aid they investigate. If he sees any one running In a suspicious manner, the dog jumps right In, trips up the runner and stands baying over him until the officer comes up. Three of the four Belgians are named Nogl, Max and Douner. The fourth, for reasons, named Lady. In the gossip of the police department Is an item to the effect that Lady will sooi add somewhat to the number of Bel gian dog cops. Dogs young enough to train for New York uses cost |10 •piece In Belgium, aud It costs $10 more to bring them here. So Lady's pups will be worth at least $20 apiece to the department and at no added outlay to the police appropriation. The fifth dog, the English one, is called Jim. In many ways he Is the liveliest of the lot. If the experiment with the dogs succeeds and they do not bowl over too many middle aged re spectabilities who are running for trol leys or the doctor, future squads will probably be largely composed of Eng lish AlredalM like Jim.

During the selection Of the Thaw jurors, Martin W. Littleton, the de fender of the young millionaire, told at luncheon a atory about a jury man. "It was in the far west," he said, "in the distant days before our west ern percentage of illiteracy had fallen to be the Jo west In the world. "A juror had been selected in a murder trial, and they were about to swear him in, when the judge, to be on the safe side, bethought himself to say to the man: 'I trust, sir, you fully understand the duties and responsibilities of a juror?'' "Straightening himself up to his full height, tho man nodded calmly and re plied: 'I'm a plain chap, and I believe in being fair to all.

To Be Investigated. (San Francisco Chronicle) "Since Louis Ferrari began the pros ecution of these impure milk cases," remarked one of a group at the Olym-* pic club, "he's suspicious of anything that looks like milk." "How so?" ventured one of the list eners. "Well, one of the fellows had a bottle of emulsion of cod liver oil, white stuff, the vilest dope a man ever tasted. It was in a plain, big necked bottle. "Where'd they get that stuff?' asked Ferrari. "'I think,' said Andrew Glarner, 1 think Jack Gleason got it "from his brother's place.' *Ah,' exclaimed Ferrari, don't care if Jack is a member of the club, I'm going after his brother's dairy.'
