Washington, D. C, Feb. 20. An event
ful period In tho country'." history Is cov
ered by the. work of the. Flfty-nrth Con
gress which Is elrasvlng to a close. It has
been a period of stirring and dramatic tie-
tion, with questions of vast magnitude '
constantly engaging attention, forming an
epoch alongside those other American
epochs, tho Revolution and tho Civil war. 1
This Congress has declared war against a
foreign foe, nnd tho treaty making branch
has participated In ratifying tho treaty
by which that war was terminated, it j
has provided a, great volunteer army, litis !
enlarged tho regular army, and has ex-
Handed tho navv to meet war omerirencIe'S I
and new conditions. Tho tariff has been I
revised, llrst by tho Dlngh-y law and then !
by the war revenue act: a bond Issue ,
known as the war loan, has been provided. .
lint far-reaching' as these war mensuris I
are, the Congress has had time also to
enact other legislation which under or
dinary circumstances would make Its ses
sion memorable. This Includes tho annex
ation of Hawaii; tho rejection by tho Sen
ate ot the, general treaty of arbitration
with dr. at Hrltaln; the enactment of a na- ,
Ilonal bankruptcy law; provision for tak
ing the Um-UOi census; teorganlzatlon of
the personnel of tho navy. To this list,
may yet bo added other Important sub
jects still pending, Including- tho Nicara
gua canal, tho Increase of the regular
army, the antl-scalplng measure, tho
Hawaiian bill, and tho proposed encour
agement of American shipping. Some of
tho most Important general measures are

The present Congress began Its woik

President McKlnley's administration. Two
days after Ills inauguration be issued tho
call for an extra session, and in pursu

March 15, 1S7. The special message to

Tho second session of the present Con
gress is remembered as the great ,var ses
sion. It shw tho culmination of tno pent-
up sympathy for suffering Cuba; the de
claration that the people of Cuba ought
to be and are free and Independent; the
declaration of war against Spain; and tho
enactment of those vast cmoigency mens
ores for prosecuting the war. Theio
wero many messages from the President
r.s tho war clouds darkened, ranging from
tho submission of the report on the
Maine disaster to the call for a declara
tion of war. Tho hist real war legisla
tion was when Congress placed at the dls-
nosal of the President, without limitation

TUB THIRD SESSION.
Tho present, or third session of the 53th
Congress, dealt with 'those far-rc.ichliiB
results grosvlnc out of tho wnr. Most Im
portant of theso was the consideration of
the peace treaty In tho Senate. The treaty
was trnnsmltte-d to the Senate by tho ere
sldent on the 4th of January. It wns then
referred to tho rommlttec on foreign rela
tions, and after being held for Just a week
by the committee mm reported back to
tho Senate on thin Jlth of January. The
Senate had the treaty under consideration
for less than a month, tho vote on rati
flcatlon hcltic taken on tho sixth of Fob
ruiiry. There was Intense Interest In tho
progiess of tho question from the begin
nine ot the discussion until tho close, and
this rntcicst was Intenslllcd by tho doubt
felt as to tho result of tho vote. when
tho Scnuto wont Into executive session on
tho Cth of February, half an hour hetorj
tho time set for tho llnal vote, the men Is
of tho treaty were cot tain of only 55 of tho
M votes necessary to insure tho adoption
of the resolution of rutllleatlon. Soon ill
tcrwnrds they secured promises from Son-
ators Jones, of Nevada, and McEneiy, ot
l.oulslann, and when the vote was taken
the result stod 57 ayes to 27 nays, or one
Koto tnoru than was necessary under tho
icinirement of a tssn-thlrds maiorltv
While tho treaty was exclusively before
the Senate tho House had wimo Indluct
participation with subjects covered by
the treaty. As the brunch originating all
revenuo measures, It providing an appro
nrlatlon of $20,000,000 to pay Spain accord

llrst proposed ns an amendment to the
Sundry Civil bill, hut was ruled out on
technical grounds, tetter It passed as an
Independent measure. Kfforts were made

The Hawaiian bill was presented to both
branches of Congress, having been fram
ed by the Hawafian commission appointed
by the. President, with a view to carry
ing out the congressional resolution an
nexing Hawaii. It provides a comprehen
slvo plan of territorial government, and
fixes the qualification ot electors and of
ficers. The bill has not, however, passed
either branch of Congress, and although
regarded as one of the Important pieces or
pending legislation It Is hardly expected
that it can pass all the stages nt this late
day In the session. In icv of this, sev
eral bills dealing with special phases in
Hawaii have passed one or the other
house. These include bills to extend thn
custom and revenue laws to Hawaii; ex
tending the1 navigation laws to Hawaii;
and extending to the Hawaiian islands the
contract labor laws of tho United States.
Nono of these has become a law, us they
are dependent largely on tho future of the
general Hawaiian bill.

WAS1IINOTON, Feb. 36, Special. A
mining boom appear to lmvo started with
hcodqtiarters In Washington, For several
days past tho capital has been Invaded by
a number of people- from Alaska and from
other mining centers of tho country who
have talked of mining and the groat pros
pects of taking out Hold In thu far north
West. Sumo uf tho men who arc here urn
bimply Interested In transportation routes
to tho Alaska country, with some small ill -torost
In the mineral resources of that
great territory. Others arc Interested In
thu mines of liritlih Coltiniblu and tho
mountain states of tho west. All aro anx
ions for Alaska legislation at this session.
Hugh O. Wallace of Tacoinn, a sen-lli-law
of Chief Justice Fuller, lias recently been
in Washington nnd fcprcad tho minitii;
fovcr among all with whom he eamo in
contact. Ho says the emigration to Aluslca
nnd tho adjoining llrltlsh territory Is go
ing to bo something tremendous during
tho coming summer. JIo also asserts that
never In tho history of this continent will
mining; excitement become so great, ex
cepting tlio days of 1840, after the gold
discoveries. In California. Nearly ocry
other northwestern man who comes to
Washington is talking about tho mineral
wealth of Alaska and of tho prospects in
other sections nnd predicting a great
boom in tho mining industry. Groat in
terest hns been manifested in thoexelmlon
act paused by tho Cunodiun parliament,
which would provent aliens from engag
ing lu placer mining in British Columbia.
It is believed that tills will bo repealed or
unuulled beforo tho mining senson opens.

A senator cannot always accomplish
what ho wants hy suavity and extreme
courtesy. No other man In tho senate is
more accomplished in handling questions
than Senator Allison, but ho sometimes
lluds It necessary to do inoro than coax.
Another man who is .Senator Allison's
e(ual In his suavo manner ami unremit
ting good naturo is .Senator Carterof Mon
tnnu. For bovcral weuUs tho Montana sen
ator lias been trying to get, a bill through
for Alaska which would give, the great ter
ritory a code of laws, something much
necdcel in tho territory. It took him three
successive days with persistent coaxing to
finally get unanimous consent that tho
reading of tho bill might bo started, and
tho llrst night ho only succeeded In bavin
50 pages read, when tho senators disap
peared until only llvo remained, and ho
was forced to reluctantly give wuy. Pre
vious to this he had to adopt a vigorous
I courso in order to Ret what ho wanted
ho first nigtit of his request it was met
with a firm and strenuous objection from
peuator Hnlo of Maine. Tho next tlay
Senator Halo endoavored to got, considera
tion for the naval personnel bill, nnd Sen
ntor Carter was found In tho way with
several suggestions looking to its delay.
The result was that during the afternoon
the Maine and Montana senators had a
conference, and later that evening, when
Senator Carter was seeking to havo Ills
Alaska bill read, Senator Halo not only
advocated it, but appealeel to various sen
ators who made objections tei withdraw
them in order that tho bill might proceed.
In tills Into day what cannot be accom
plished bycoaxing must be brought about
by hard lighting. Over ull legislation not
actually needed hang tho appropriation
bills ready to crowd ovorythlng olso out of

It often happens that when men aro de-

Their acquaintance with congressmen nnd
tho fnet thnt they served in either house or
senato are supposed to give them a consider
able "pull" in matters portnining to con

their services aro sometimes sought by

Take up tho While Man', burden
Send forth the best yo breed;
Go bind your eons to exile
To serve your captives' need;
To wait, lu heavy harness,
On Muttered folk and wild
Tour new-e night sullen peoples,
Half devil and half child.
Take up tho White Man's burden
In r.,tl. ice to abide,
To veil tho thrc.it of terror
And chei;k tho snow of pride;
I!y open speech and simple.
An hundred times made plain,
To seek another's proht
And woik another's gain.
Take up tho While Man's burden
Tho savagu wars of peace
Fill full the mouth of Famine,
And bid the sickness ce.vs;
And wh"n your goal Is nearest
(Tho end for others sought)
Watch sloth and heathen folly
Hi Ins nil your hope lo nought.
Tako up the White Man's burden
No iron rule nf kliiRs,
Hut toll of serf and sweeper
The tale of common things.
The ports ye shall not enter.
The ro.idi ye shall not tiead.
Go, make thm with your ll ills'
And in.uk them with your dead.
T.ik' up the White Man's burden,
And roep Ivis old lewnrd
Tin h!am" of those bttter
The hate of thoso ye guard-Tin-

(Ah. slowly!) toward the light:

Take up Hie White Man's burdvn
Ye da IV not stoop to K'.-s
Nor tall too loud on Freedom
To cloke your weal lne?s.
Hy all e will or whisper,

Take up the White Man's burden!

Comes now. to watch your manhood
Through all the thankless years.
