Strange Cargo From the Amazon.
One of the strangest cargoes a ves sel could possibly have was unloaded at the London docks toward the close of March, says the Scientific American. It consisted of several sacks filled with dried files, consigned to a large firm of grain merchant. These flies, originating in Brazil, have been purchased for use in the manufac ture of food for chickens, cage birds and the like. They were caught on the river Amazon by Brazilians, who travel up the river in flat-bottomed boats and .who are provided with gauze nets, with which they capture these insects in millions, as flies hover in dense cloud 3 over many of the swampy reaches of the Amazon. The flies thus caught are killed, dried in the sun, and then placed in sacks. Upon arrival in London they are mixed with millet and other grain and are sold as chicken food, etc. Some time ago the Brazilian government, fearing that the fish in the Amazon river would be starved, forbade the ex portation of flies; hence the price of this Btrange commodity, which used to be Gd per pound, has now risen to Is Gd per pound, and often a little more. “Dry Farming." Successful cultivation of arid land without irrigation, it seems like an im possibility, does It not? Reclamation of 600,000,000 acres of land, *at present unproductive and comparatively worth less, not through irrigation but through education, this too seems like a chi mera. But successful dry farming, sci entific soil culture by what is known as the Campbell system, according to .John L. Cowan, easily makes possible results that at first seem incredible. Mr. Cowan’s discussion, in much in teresting detail, of this new method of producing bountiful crops without irri gation, wil be a fascinating and valu able feature of the July Century.

Minister Saw They Were What He Needed. In a rural town in Michigan lived a family named Beaver, noted for their ‘hardihood in all manner of naughti ness. They were the great torment of the minister's life. Finally, one of the boys was bit by a rattlesnake and sent for him. He found the lad, igreatly scared and very penitent. After some conversation, the reverend gentleman closed the interview by prayer. "O. Lord,” he began, “we thank thee for rattlesnakes. We thank thee that a rattlesnake has bit Jim. Send an other, we pray thee, to bite Tom, and one to bite Joe. And, O Lord, send the biggest kind of a rattlesnake to bite the old man: for nothing less than rattlesnakes will bring this Beaver family to repentance.”—Metaphysical Magazine. Allen S.

Washington. — Congress completed Friday the execution of its legislative programme and adjourned Saturday. On the eve of adjournment the dif ference between the house and senate on the important bills pending were adjusted. As a result of the action taken the following measures were laid before the president for his approval: The railroad rate act. The agricultural appropriation bill, including the meat inspection amend ment. The pure food act. The president signed the railroad rate bill at 11:45 Friday night. It goes into effect in CO days. New Epoch in Legislation. Had rothing else been done tills con gress these measures would stand out as monuments to the pie ent national administration. In emphutic manner they mark the beginning of a new epoch in federal legislation—govern mental regulation on corporations and the invocation of tlie police power, so to speak, to stay the hand of private greed and protect the pocket book and the health and general welfare of the masses. In tile end the house has had its way mostly regarding the railroad rate bill. Oil pipe lines remain in the meas ure as common carriers, but the com modity provision of the hill lias been fixed so as to make the prohibition of an alliance between transportation and production apply only to •'railroad coni!).mies.” The railroads cannot own coal mines or transport their own products, but Standard Oil and tlie in dependent oil companies can pipe their own product. The senate yielded on tills point because the house refused to give in by an overwhelming vote, and otherwise the whole bill would have died. Senator Tillman contented himself with a severe “roast" of the Standard Oil influence, and then as the one in charge of the measure voted to accept the conference report. The senate gained a part of its contention in a readjustment of the anti-pass feature of the bill which prohibits free trans portation to every one rave certain excepted classes, including railroad employes and their families, and the officials, attorneys, surgeons, etc., of the companies. House Victory in Meat Bill. The meat legislation a complete victory for the house. The senate agreed to the conference report and the house formally ratified it. There were two points in controversy—tlie payment for inspection service and the question of putting dates on tlie labels of cans and packages of meat prod ucts. The government will pay the cost of inspection, instead of the pack ers, and labels will not require the date of Inspection or canning of the contents. In announcing the failure of the sen ate conferees to win on these disputed points. Senator Proctor said tiie bill accomplished a great deal. Inasmuch as it provides for thorough Inspection of ail meat products and the sanitary regulation of packing plants, and that the conferees felt they could not lose everything by holding out for distinc tive features which the public would not accept. He paid his compliments to the packers in strong terms and charged them with having engineered the scheme that created sentiment in favor of making the government pay the cort of inspection. Other senators cntereJ their protest against the con troverted provisions of the measure, but finally the conference rep.rt was' adopted. In the house, acceptance of the re port was a pure formality. One im portant new feature of the measure as it passed both houses is an added appropriation of $000,000 to the $:’,- 000,000 for inspection provided in the house amendment. This was brought about by combining the amount orig inally appropriated to the bureau of animal industry for inspection under the old system with the new perma nent appropriation. Pure Food Bill Criticised. The conference report on the pure food bill was adopted by both houses without, any change. In tiie opinion of Dr. Wiley and other oflii ials of the agricultural department, it is a good measure as far as It goes, but Mr. Mann, of Chicago, who had charge of the conference report, says that it was not as good as had been hoped for. It is weak in that it does not provide a standard by which drugs, foods and drinks can be measured to determine whether they comply with the law. That important question is referred to the courts, which under the bill as it will become law must add to their LEADING FEA TURES OF THE THREE BIG BILLS RAILROAD RATES. GENERAL PROVISIONS—The railroad | rate 1 bill require* all interstate carriers to make through route* and reasonable Joint rates. It make* oil pipe line companies. , express companies, and sleeping car com panies common carriers and subject to the law. Railways are forbidden Tram en gaging In arv other business than trans portation. Pipe linos are excluded from , this prohibition. PRIVATE CARS—While permitting rail way* to use private frelgut cars, it re quires that all Incidental charges arising j from refrigerating and other services be. incorporated in the transportation charge, j PUBLIC RATES—It require* publica tion of all rates, fares, or charges, and forbid* changes save on 30 days' notice. Jurisdiction Is conferred upon the inter- . «t.ite commerce commission to hear com- . plaints of unjust and unreasonable rates. ! and to fix rates that are Just and reason- 1 able.

With the adjournment of congress it is possible to make a survey of the entire field of Important legislation enacted during the session. The three most prominent measures already have been referred to. and their gen eral provisions are well known to the country. Next in point <.f Interest perhaps comes the Panama canal act. The house first declared in favor of the lock canal, by providing that no portion of the money appropriated in the sundry civil bill should he ex pended on a sea level project. A ma jority of the senate committee report ed in favor of a sea level canal, but after a vigorous debati tiie president's recommendation in fav< r of a lock type was approved by a vote of 3G to 31. A Joint resolution was passed by congress requiring the purchase of supplies and materials !< : the canal in the American market unless the presi dent shall determine that the bids of domestic producers are ix'ortionate or unreasonable. Congress appropriated 142.600.000 for continuing work on the canal, $16,600,000 being deficiency appropria tions and $26,000,000 hi :ng for work during the fiscal year If? In addi tion to these appropriations steps are being taken to issue the canal bonds authorized by the Spo<•: -r ;. t. which may be issued “from time to time” [ to the extent of $130,' ■ During the present session congi> - provided that these bonds she.. I have the ! •ights and privileges of < thor two per j cent, bonds of the United States and the tax of one-fourth of one per cent, unposed upon bonds d* posited to se- ' : cure national bank circulation was im- 1 posed upon the canal bonds when used for such security. It w..s also pro vided that the deficiency appropriation ! should be returned to the treasury from tiie proceeds of the sale of the canal bonds. Statehood Issue Settled. The admission of Oklahoma and In dian territory aB a ting • state was accomplished by the act approved June 16. The act also admit.'- Arizona and New Mexico into the union as a single state, provided that a majority in each of the territory* shall vote for joint statehood, "and not other wise." This hill «|| • subjt : of bitter contention, as it had been in former sessions. It passed the house In the form of a bill admitting the four territories as two states. The senate amended the bill by eliminat ing all provisions relating to Arizona anti New Mexico. In conference the conditional admission of these ter ritories as a state was agreed upon, anti after vigorous jjebi.te in both houses the confer* nee report was agreed to. After several years of effort on the part of the state department eongress at this session passed an aet reorgan izing the consular service. The con- , suls general and consul* are grouped by classes, and provision is made for, an inspection service consisting of five 1 consuls general at large, with a sal- j ary of 15,000 each N'o officer in the consular service wiving more than SI,OOO is permitted t- engage in busi- j ness or practice law All fees are to he turned into the treasury. Origin- : ally tne bill prvided that the higher offices thould he filled by promotion only, but this provision was ellmin- , ated and the promotion system has J been established by the state depart- | men! without further enactment. Boon in Alcohol Bill. A most important i ieee of legisla tion Is the removal of the tax upon ! denatured alcohol. 1' was strongly opposed by manufact . ers of kerosene ■ and gasoline. In 11»«- debate it was I alleged that, with the tax removed, alcohol could be n. r.ufactured and sold cheaper than ei:her kerosene or : gasoline and that it would enter into universal use for ilkm.inating, motive power and otherwis* A national quararr. e law. provid ing for uniformity of administration ! and giving the ferp .1 government power to establish quarantines ‘n ■ port cities and supersede the local and state authorities, ha*- ‘*een passed.

The nuvul act of this year makes small provision otherwise for the Increase of the navy. A bill was passed defining hazing and providing for the punishment of midshipmen guilty of the offense. General legislation during this ses sion Included un act prohibiting in terstate commerce in spurious or falsely stamped articles made'of gold or silver alloy, an act providing for the marking of the graves of confed erate soldiers and sailors and an act providing foj the disposition of the five civilized tribes of Indians. The principal legislation affecting the Philippines was an act postpon ing the operation of the coastwise laws until April 11, 1909; another re vising the Philippines tariff, and a third authorizing the purchase of coal claims by the secretary of war. An important measure to cattle in terests is that changing the 28-hour law so that cattle may be kept in cars :1G hours without unloading. Immigration Bill Fails. Among the important measures that have failed the immigration bill de mands first consideration. It failed because a conference committee was not appointed to settle the disagree ment between the two houses. After a spirited fight In the house, in which Speaker Cannon participated, the im migration bill, originally a senate measure, was passed, with a substitute for the "educational test," which re quired immigrants to possess the abil ity to read English or some other lan guage. The house substituted a sec tion providing for a commission to In vestigate the subject of immigration. The bill will command attention when congress reconvenes in the fall. The bill to prevent contributions by corporations to rampaigu funds was started in the house. It was forced ! through the senate by the indefatig able • tforts of Senator Tillman. 'I ho i house leaders refined to let it come lup there, although it is understood action will be permitted at the next I soßßßion. The Democrats charge that the Jtcpublieans want to lay it over | until after the Congressional ele'tions, in order to get one more chance at the corporation barrel- The Philippine tarifT bill Is still an other notable failure. It was one of the features of the original ndmlnis tion programme, was wnlpp d through the house after a celebrated fight with the insurgents, nnd eventually landed in th * seclusion of a senate commit tee-room. It has been allowed to he forgotten for the present. The immunity bill, designed to pre vent the recurrence of fiascos such as attended the prosecution of the Chi cago beef cases, passed the house and in amended form was reined favor ab y irom the senate committee on Ju diciary. Ever since then efforts to get it up have failed owing to the objec tion of some senator or other. It has been a hard ses.dou for treat ies. The Santo Domingo convention, much desired by the administration, lias oec-n kept down by tlie hostile mi nority in the senate. No action lias been taken either on the Isle of Pines or Algeclras treaties. Fate of Labor Bills. Blllj, most of which were demanded by 'he leaders of organized labor, have met their fate as follows: 1. 'I he anti-injunction bill—dead In the Judiciary committee. 2. The eight-hour hill, reported from the cciumlttee on labor, but not acted upon. 11. The election of senators In con gress by direet vote of the people ' dead in committee. ' 4. ’1 he publicity of campuign ex ! ponses bill, recently reported to the J house, but not acted ujKjn. 5. The letter carriers’ hill —dead In committee. G. The hill to regulate the hours of railway trainmen —dead In committee. 7. The bill for the relief of the Slo cum survivors—dead in committee. 8. The hill to prevent convict-made goods trom competing with the goods manufactured by honest labor—dead in committee. Outside the line of actual legl lation, the piescnt session will he historic through having authorized the investi gation that has led to tlr* rallroad-rosl exposures. Another resolution adopted by the senate will cause an Investiga tion oi the alleged grain trust and rallroad-e’evator combine In the wraf, that i romlses to be equally If n t more sensational.
