HARDLY PROBABLE WATERWAYS COMMITTEE REPORT WILL BE ACTED UPON FAVORABLY BY WASHINGTON SOLONS. Woman Lawyer's Wit to Be Vsed to Free Hargis the Patricide Washington, D. C, Dec. 14. The out look for the passage of an omnibu3 river and harbor bill at this session of congress is anything but encouraging The fact is that the chances now are that no such measure will be drafted by the Rivers and Harbors committee, and if this proves to be the case it is quite certain there will be no general legislation of this character. The custom for many years has been to pass a bill of large proportions at the short session of congress and the general expectation has been that it would be followed this year. Even Representative T. E. Burton, of Ohio, the chairman of the committee, intend ed to report such a measure and have, it become a law before adjournment next March. But there has been an unexpected change in the program and Mr. Burton himself said last night that for rea sons which will be explained in this dispatch the prospects now were that a bill would not be reported. The chairman acknowledges that some po tent arguments have been advanced against legislation of this nature dur ing the session and they appeal to him as strongly as they do to other leaders of the house and also of the senate. It is understood, moreover, that Presi dent Roosevelt is beginning to share the same view. The expectation has been that a bill carrying an aggregate of at least $50, OUU.OOO of appropriations would be passed. But the pressing need of practicing economy in every direction In order to prevent another large defi cit in the treasury at the end of the next fiscal year has impressed itself upon the minds of the men who con trol legislation at the capitol, as well as upon the presndent, the secretary of the treasury and other high officials of the administration. Another rea son for postponing this legislation, is to be found in the new proaganda. for the improvement of the internal water ways of the country on a new and prander scale than Las heretofore been done. ' " - Lexington, Ky., Dec. 14. For the first time in his career as a prosecutor in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky A.

At this trial Byrd wild also play the role oil prosecutor, with a Hargis as the unwilling victim of his skill, but in this instance he will have his mer ciless cross-fire objected to by Mrs. Mattie Young, the wife of William A.

A large school of physicians which is constantly increasing, claims that the eating of too much animal foods creates an over .supply of proteids, which are composed of carbon, hydro gen, nitrogen oxygen and sulphur, and that when such proteids are imper fectly digested and go into the blood they create vast Quantities of nitro gen which the oxygen from the lungs cannot neutralize and hence results, uric acid and rheumatism and scores of other diseases. These proteids do not permit the assimilation processes to take place properly and poisoning results all through the blood. However, if such proteids are per fectly digested they form a most val uable part of our food and are abso lutely necessary to life. The fault then rests with the stom ach and the digestive apparatus. Hence it is claimed by these latter day authorities that rheumatism arises in the stomach or through the stomach and not in the kidneys as some medical authorities teach. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets cure dys pepsia, reduce proteids to their natur al condition best taken up by the sys tem, give strength to the blood, rest the stomach and invigorate and renew the gastric fluids, pancreatic juice and the digestive organs in general.

Marquis Fallavicini, the Austrian-Hungarian ambassador to Turkey, had an inter view Sunday with Kiamil Pasha, the grand vizier and the foreign minister, at which he submitted Austria's pro posals for a settlement of the dispute with reference to the annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Later the cabinet held a meeting and, it is un derstood, decided that the sum which Austria offers is a compensation is quite inadequate. It is rumored that, as a means of exerting pressure, Aus tria threatens to stop the purchase of tobacco from Turkey for the Austrian monopoly. This amounts to $0,000, 000 annually.
