The plans perfect ed are as follows: After remaining on the senate cal endar for almost three months in t state of uncertainty us to its fate the bill providing for the admission of .the territoriettvof N*-w Mexico ant Arizona to* seperate Statehood was taken up by Lhe senate Thursday and passed after a debate consuming lit tie more than two hours. The measure was called up by Senator Beveridge. chairman of the committee on territories, and w aa passed after speeches by Senators Beverldge. Frazier, Nelson. Iiughca aud Stnoot. AU the speeches were favorable to the creation of the two States, but the Democrats favored the house hill. When the vote wras reached there a'us a division on the senate substitute for the house bill, but with that amendment accepted, the senate voted aoliJly for the passage of the bill. ' The senate substitute was adopted as an amendment to the house bill j by a strictly party vote, the vote standing 4 2 to 19. | As passed the bill would provide j for the admission of the two terriI lories as States, but not until after j a constitution had be a adopted by j each of them, approved by the president, and ratified by congress.

J. Henderson, I at Spartaulmrg, in the absence of her parents, showed her kinsman Monday where her father kept his money buried. According to the testimony brought out in tlie hearing, John Reel es was penniless, for ho had just asked for a loan of 15 cents, before being shown the treasure. Afterwards he returned to the house a while, and then excused himself and went out and unearthed the money uid took $56. it is alleged. He had previously announced his int? ntion of remaining all night with the Hendersons, but on exploring his uncle's hidden wealth, and helping himself, it is said, he took Krench leave. I ? .... ..V. nnuiun It is announced that the $2:52.10, which Lieut. C. R. Men net t. of the United States army, Ijorrowed front Col. W. T. Itrock, has been returned and Is placed to the credit of the department in the treasurer's office. This matter played quite a part in the proceedings before the court of inquiry. Col. Itrock testified that lie loaned Lieut. Dennett this money as Air. Dennett needed tie cash to go 011 the annual Inspection tour this year. The court of inquiry has not yet rendered itc decision. Mr. Taft says socialism will soon he quite an issue. Not having been many more p ople than usual with long hair, it had not struck us that way. ter the gavels in the Senate and House have fallen for the Inst time this session, and only janitors and cartakers are found in the places of the nation's law-makers, the IV-cord j will lie (tuning as usual.

It is already settled that Heveridge is to go Indiana and that will mean, in ail probability, almost an entirely solid Democratic delegation from that State in the House. The same rei*orts are coming in from other sections. The Republicans from President Taft down are imitating the ground hog. They have come out and seen their shadow, and it looks iike they must go back in for two years. Really, that terrible tarlf law haunts them day and night, and *hey can't get awary from it.

" FIERY ATTACK i Seoator Dolfirer Defies Administration to Ckase Insurgents Ooti ' ASSAILS THE TARIFF s The Iusiirjji-nt Leader of the Senate j Slashes Ihi^dont Taft, Senator Aldrich and Speaker Cannon tor j Faults of the l*arty. Kssentiall) J. a Challenge to the Administration. 1 From the lips of Senator Dilliver, of Iowa, the battle cry of the "in1 surgent" Republicans was sounded on the floor of the Senate the other day. In a speech which bristled with defiance to President Taft. Senator Aldrich. Speaker Cannon and all the other champions of the Inroads ot predatory wealth, the great Western ' lawmaker sounded the call for a new Republican crusade against fake tariff revision., against the gr?'d and oppression of monopoly and against the false leaders of the party to which Abraham I.iaeoin, its founder, gave bis heart and soul and finally his life. Not in years has there been a spw ch ot such power and eloquence on either lit or of Congress aud rturiug the three hours which the thundering lowun held the floor, the dumbfounded regulars sat cowering | in their places, scare* ly one of t hem j leaving the Senate chamber. "Last year witnessed two iuipo*tant hou/.es perpetuated on the American peopi said l)olli\er, "the discovery of the North Pole by l)r. Cook and the revision of the tariff downward by Senator Aldrich." This was the starting point of his attack ou the Republican "standpatters" and he kept at it vigorously from beginning to end. Dolliv r declared that he spoke as a Republican, as a guarian of the Republican faith, and he defid liis enemies to drive hlui and those who stood with his fr? m the party. The speech was an open and ringing declaration of war on the dominance of commercialism in politics ad public life. it was essentially a challenge to i the Administration, the Aldrich and to Cannon, to a light to the death. In his denunciation of the humbug ami false pretense of the Paye-Al uricii revision of th - tariff, the Western senator wont further than in any of his previous attacks on that measure. He hurled defiance, mingled with scorn, at the President, tilling him lie would welcome deliverance from the yoke of patronage, and taunting him with the utter in-' j consistences of his vuriou* speeches on the tariff and other subjects. He J also Referred with withering scorn to the attacks of Speaker Oannou on the progressives and the insurgents. In closing lie solemnly devoted himself to the tight against monopoly and tariff. In concluding S-na^or Dot liver said: "1 propose to tell not only a hat has gone on in Congress last year in connection with the tariff, hut also what is now going on to prevent members following their own dictates of ooscience. 1 am through with tarifT revision as accomplished by those interests to which it primarily belongs. I shall stand on the tioor of Congress and fight it ju?t as long as Iowa returns me to Wa-diington. and i shall do it as a Republican. 1 uw? > vmo iur m> pooia-ai [tie. l | ha\e toiled for the public 25 jenr.s and 1 do not propose that tny remaining years shall be Riven tip to a dull cons nt to these cocspiracies which would rob the people to multiply private wealth.
