The seventh day's session of the ways and means committee, was devoted to the agricultural schedule, including: live animals, dairy products, fruits, fish, meats, etc. W. H. Bockwell, of Penn sylvania, engaged in raising and fat- tenning cattle in Kansas and Mexico was first speaker. He said that under the McKinley law cattle cannot be im ported from Mexico as the tariff is prohibitive. He had started a business in Arizona, but tne ary season forced him to Mexico. The Kansas farmer. he said, was greatly benefitted by bringing cattle from Mexico to Kansas where they were fattened. The cattle- j men paid Kansas farmers more for their grain than the farmers could make by raising tbe cattle themselves. Only half the membership of the house was present when reassembled today after holiday recess. The gal leries were well filled. Before the house proceaded to the regular busi ness of considering the Loud bill, fix ing the grade of second class postal matter, Broderick of Kansas presented a resolution calling on the Secretary of the Interior to report why patents were not issued on lands in Kansas purchased by persons from Union Pa cific company who had received the land as a government grant. Mr Broderick stated that within the limits of Topeka district, homestead entries were being made upon lands held by their present occupants for 25 years. The house then considered the Loud bill, and Mr. Quigg began the argu ment against it. Newspaper Decease. The evening edition of the Morning Times died Saturdav nierbt. on which date the contract between the proprie tor and the Associated Press terminat ed. The paper was an expense of $50 per week to Mr. Hart, and there was really nothing in it. There is now no day report from the Associated Press, coming into this city. The day report of the United Press is the only day service, and that is published in the Herald. The papers southwest of Denver are furnished by both press associations with what is known as a pony report, condensed from the full leased wire re ports of the day and night. The full A. P. day report is about 16,000 words, and the full night report about 4000 words more. The trouble with the Associated Press reports sent down into me soutnwest couutry is, that the pony being made president in mauo up iu ueuver, anu is largely ot nt Uiiu t;uua V I li 1 11 iiUD AUUUU J ii J U a l 11 U , Montana, Wyoming and other territo ries of no especial interest to Texas and southern New Mexico readers who want and have not succeeded in getting from the A. P. southern news. If the service were received from Dallas there would be a different tale to tell. Hut there is no paper between Fort Worth and El Paso that is able to pay for press service, and the distance is too great to warrant the expense of a Dallas service. So the A. P. sends down northern news from Denver for its southern patrons to growl over. In the Senate. Washington, Jan. 5. The reassem bly of the senate this morning after a fortnight's holiday was unmarked by noticeable incidents. Visitors were few and the senators had a listless air as if the Cuban question was only a dream. The chaplain prayed for the restoration of the people's industries and pros perity. The senate committee on finance met this morning. There was no business as there was no quorum. Senator Call (Fla), offered a re solution today requesting the president to send all correspondence and reports relating to arrest and imprisonment of Julio Sanguilly, a U. S. citizen. He aiso introduced a joint resolution in structing the president to "Demand immediate release" of Sanguilly. Both resolutions were ''aid over until tomorrow when Mr. Call proposes to address the senate. A joint resolu tion introduced by Senator Peffer for the appointment of a national monetary commission was taken up by Peffer, who addressed the senate. Senate ad journed until tomorrow. A (ireat Educator Gou. Boston, Mass., Jan. 5. General Francis A. Walker, president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and widely known writer on economics, died this morning from appoplexy. General Walker was not only emi nent in politico-economic cirales, but was also prominent in commercial life. He was chairman of the inter-state commerce commission, and in business ethecs generally he was considered an authority. General Walker graduated at Amherst in 1800. He was given the degree of doctor of philosophy bv his Alma Mater in 1875, and in 1S83 the degree of doctor of laws wasconfered on him by Amherst, and in 1SS1 bv Harvard, and in 1887 by Columbia, and by Dublin University in '1892. Before of the Institute Technology at Boston, General Walker was the professor there of political economy and history. He was also a member of the National Acade my of science, and had the degree of master of arts given him by Yale. Tariff Discussion. Washington, Jan. 5. Representa tive Curtis, of Kansas, asked for a duty of $10 per head on cattle, $2 per head on calves. Kansas raisers and feeders he said, were iujured, not benefitted by the importation of Mexican cattle Representative Bowers, of California then took up the fruit trade. We want to raise present rates on fruit, as the law now affords no pro tection to growers. A member of the committee suggested that an increase in duty would raise the price to con sumers. Mr. Bowers replied it would not; on the contrary California fruit growers would guarantee increased pro duction and a decrease in prices. On raisins, prunes, plums and all dried fruit, he asked a duty of 3 cents a pound On oranges requested a duty of 2 cents per cubic foot. If fruit growers were given fair protection a million yearly sent abroad for fruit, would be kept at home. Senator Per kins of California presented a memo rialf rom the fruit growers of his state and endorsed what his colleague had said. Mr. Armstrong, of California, said almond growers had almost- been ruin ed by the present law, and asked an increase in duty irom tnree to six cents per pound. Davis Lobin, of Call forma, requested an export duty on all agricultural products. Delaware Legislature Organized, DOVER. Del., Jan. 5 Seven union republicans from Kent county declared not elected by the canvassing board, with defeated representatives from Sussex county were found in the rump" house today. No ''rump senate being likely, nothing can be accomplished, rne regular bouse was organized today with E. E. Higgins, democrat as speaker, and the senate was organized with H. Harring ton president. D O NOT MI ALE! SPECIAL S Tomorrow WEDNESDAY, D ECEMBER 6. w No Compromise. To the Daily Herald: It was with great pleasure that I read your "Te Salutamus" in your issue of last Satur day, to know that at least one of our city papers is willing to stand up for tl ritrhts of the poor man. You say: "We shall try to live up to a full reali zation of our duty as a newspaper, that of h tribune of ttie people, speaking out in defense of the oppressed." I have an idea that you will have abundant opportunity to do so in the future when those delinquent taxpayers are being pushed to the wall, and say: "Oh, I will compromise this business and pay one half of what I justly owe;" and will further say to Mr. Collector (be he Mr. Patterson or any one else) that when the city ordinant-e was framed in refer ence to the collection of taxes, Alder man Stewart said that something was done so as to allow the city to compro mise tax suits. Now in all fairness I ask if it would be notonly an oppression but an outmtre on the" man Who is honest enough to pay his taxes, for the city to compromise with those who are disposed to stand the tax collector oil for six or eight years for the sake of a compromise. Is it possible that our city fathers intend to offer inducements to any one who will but try to bpat the city out of its revenues. O. T. Dix, OK "WHO FAY3 SIS TAZF,$. Visiting" McKinley. Cleveland, O., Jan. 5. Senator Thurston, of Nebraska, arrived this morning, and went to Banna's suburb an residence, where he breakfasted with the president-elect. Thurston remained with McKinley until 1 o'clock when he left for Washington. Senator Allison will stop in Canton on Wed nesday. This visit is regarded as an event of more than ordinary import ance, owing to the widespread report that Major McKinley desires Allison for secretary of state or secretary of the treasury. A Bad Wreck. Des Moines. Jan. 5. A disastrous wreck on the Chicago, Burlington & (Juiucy railway is reported on the braach between Sidney and Carson this morning. One coach is in the ditch.

Another Banker Suicides Pittsburg, Penn. Jan. 5. Christ Scbauer, Jr., treasurer of the Nations bank for savings at Allegheny was found dead by banging this morning.

Mr. Bryan cut his lecture course short because he did not relish seeing himself pictured on posters along side of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Jackson and otber great celebrities.

Train number twenty arrived this afternoon in two sections, one beirg a special made up of the general manag er's car, tne manager's car and the sup erintendent's car, in chatre of Conduc tor Stockwell.
