WASHINGTON. May 27.?Some e::

;a.v. :Frdsident diirinc; a visit of Senator
John ICenri, of New Jersey, who is reInfoft

|'Hi-e senior Senator from that
State is usyvaUy- mild-mannered, arv.i
was in characteristic good hiimoi
when he-arrived at the executive offices

beside Senator Shelby M. Ciiiloin
Senator Refffield Proctor and Repre

waiting pending the termination of
the. conference between Mr. Hoo.s-.rKEg?r.-.Velt
and the Secretary of War.
After Senator Kcnn had seen the
President he left tlio White House in
a different mood. His face was flushed
and he declined to rarg about the
>V: matter of Mr. Cortelyou's selection as
National Chairman, or on any other
political subject.
Shortly after the tentative selection
of Mr. Cortelyou was announced Senator
Heart came out in an interview
in a New Jersey paper, criticizing the
President's choice. He declared his
intention to express himself to the
f. ; same effect when he next saw the
, President. It is said that as soon as
Senator Kean intimated that he did
not like the selection of Mr. Cortelyou
the President opened fire and corn
mented sarcastically upon all who had
.been, interposing objections to every
prominent member of the party whose
: :f. . name had been mentioned in conned
tion with the Republican chairmand.;
?!>> Hard to Suit All.
;; urirrrav flrane's name was
riot satisfactory to some members of
the party. The President turned tvitli
favor toward ex-Secretary Cornelius
j ' N. Bliss, of New York, and found that
;f. Senator Piatt and Governor Odell
jfjlpy. could not agree upon that selection.
The name of Governor Murphy, of
New Jersey was then considered, an.!
this developed the fact that while
Senator Dryden, of New Jersey, favored
''him, the senior Senator of tire
?? * State, Mr. Kean, and his followers bit '
- terly opposed the choice of Mr. Mr.rThe
President learned that SenKean's
objections to Governor
MurpBy were probably due to the fact
. that . Mr. Kean feared Governor liur
. phy would loom up so large with the
SBfoa; prestige of having managed a campaign
that he^wouhl become a logical
candidate to succeed Senator Kean.
f:; whose term will expire next r.Iarch.
:.N . So far as can be learned President
Rooseveit to-day indicated that he was
driven to a selection of his own. an.-:
decided upon. Secretary Cortelyou us
a man with whom ho was perfect 1 y
familiar, and who, besides- having all
the qualities necessary for campaign
'&ia.irman,- was such a man as ,could
not be criticised by those, who had objectod
to other members of the par- ,.
r" on petty grounds.
Interested In State Fights,
itrg - Republican factional disturbances
: occupied much of the attention of the
;;b * President to-day. While he is not
halting a hand in any of the State
yV fights, he is perhaps, manifesting a
.g. , deeper interest in the outcome of the
splits in Wisconsin, Illinois and Ohio
than any other member of his party,
because their result may have an im;
- - portant hearing upon the national campaign
What disturbs the President
more than any/ other thing is that the
most'serious disaffection in his own
. party is occurring in States which will
be in the great battleground of the
: campaign?Illinois, Wisconsin, etc.
During the forenoon Mr. Roosevelt
talked with Senator Cttilom and Representative
Koss respecting the Gubernatorial
deadlock in Illinois. Senator
Cullom went over the situation
in detail and informed the President
' that there has been no change what*'
prcr to. the situation since the conven
tion adjourned to reassemble on May
31. Senator Cullom said all the canip^
didates and. their followers had suc'ceeded
in maintaining their lines, and
. that each man was confident of success.
Says Bitterness Was Absent.
He said the most notable feature of
the convention was the absence of bitterness
between the candidates m.d
'their respective followers, and at*':y-y
tributed this to the high intellectual
r;i-.qualities of the delegates and the
p| men they are supporting. This new.-?
was received joyfully by the Presi;
; dent, who has been entertaining grave
5',;,.' fears tbat the fight -would leave deep
^te;.%t0roands which might not be healed in
"^wvv'-ti.me to aid the party in the November
Senator Cullom said in
gjjk. this connection he could not assure

^Vcrence continued some time.
stated, though, that the President will
not interfere In any of tliese State
disruptions further than to urge ail
members of the party to pursue a con- j
dilatory course In the interest of the j
national parry as far as possible.
Worried About Wisconsin.
President Roosevelt is understood i
to be particularly solicitous about i
Wisconsin, where the condition of the !
Republican party Is in strong contrast j
with that of the-Democrats, who are j
returning to their former, status in !
the second Cleveland campaign; when ;
ex-Senator Vilas .swung the electoral j
votes oi* the State into line for the j
Democratic candidate.
Senators Aldrich and Proctor also j
; called upon the President to-day. Sen- j
[ a tor Aldrich made a flying trip o ;
j the city, arriving in the morning and
I leaving for the' Xorth on the after|
noon train.- Before going he had a
t long conference at the Arlington Hotel
i witii Commissioner of Labor Carroll
j D. Wright. Senators Aldrich and
! Spooner also saw Postmaster-General
j Payne, vice-chairman of the Republican
committee, at the Arlington.
Literature For Democrats.
Senator Culberson, of Texas, was
j at the headquarters of the Democrat ic
Congressional Committee for some
time to-dav discussing the subject of
campaign literature with Chairman
Cowherd. The committee is sending
! our 2,0.00 letters to chairmen of the
(Democratic committee, asking Cor the
| names of young men who are going to
take the stump in the campaign.
When these names are received the
committee will communicate with
! each of the speakers, supplying them
j with literature dealing with the isI
sues of the campaign. The committee
will try in this manner to focus campaign
oratory throughout the country
upon I lie few really viral issues of the
j campaign. It is not believed an nc.j
live effective campaign can bo coni
ducted unless all members of the
i party work in harmony, emphasizing
; the paramount issues of the year ami
I ignoring collateral subjects of minor
"Unless Democrats work together
' toward a common goal the campaign
| will lie about as effective," said Secretary
Charles A. Edwards to-day,
; "as a mule kicking at yellow jackets."

| Feed the Land and It Will Feed Yoi?.
The importance of having the greatf
est possible quantity of manure is
| generally understood by farmers, even
| when they fail to give proper attenj
tion to the matter. Every crop taken
| from the land, every pound of meat
j sold from the farm, represents an asj
certainecl amount of fertility with!
drawn, and none will deny that we can
! not continue to draw from the soil
i without making returns any more
\ than we can draw on tlie bank. witlioutr
'l making deposits. The best blooded
! cow over stabled could nor furnish
! rich milk on a diet of straw.
| Now, the bank that never fails and
i cannot be broken in nature, .and if we
j make the necessary deposits of feri
tilizing matter into the soil we can be
| sure of getting back the principal with
I good interest. A good crop of wheat?
j say twenty-five bushels?has taken
out of the soil in the form of straw
| about 10 pounds of nitrogen, 23.2
j pounds potash and 10 pounds of phos;
phoric acid: in the form of grain, 27
j pounds nitrogen, 8.1 pounds potash
j and 12 pounds phosphoric acid, making
a total drain of 13 pounds nitrogen,
! 31.3 pounds potash and 22.4 pounds
phosphoric acid. It. will take three
! tons of good unbleached barnyard ma:
nure to restore those elements to the
| soil. Our richest soils cannot enclure
j such drains for many years without
j showing it. Our uplands have to a
great extent been so impoverished,
j that it will cost the value of the land
i to restore them to their original vigor,
and our wonderful bottoms, although
frequently enriched by floods
and clover do not yield as heavy as
| when they were new. When farmers
I pay as much attention to raising the
i highest quality it will be compara!
tively easy matter to raise premium
i crops. Feed your land and it will feed
j you.?Agricultural Epitomist.

Inffenlons Device !>y Which the Long '
ToIicm Are CJenncd. *
The long pipes that carvy crude pe- 1
troleum from the oi] wells to the re- f
fineries many miles distant are cleaned
by an ingenious device. A writer >
in the Omaha Daily Bee describes it: '
As the oil flows through these underground
conduits some of the par- '
nifin in the fluid inerasts the sides of
the pipes and proves a serious hindrance
to the free passage of the current
of oil. '
The device that is used to remedy :
this evil is a knife about two feet in
length, with a sharp edge, constructed
like the thread of a screw; indeed, the
knife resembles a huge headless screw. t
It is. of course, slightly smaller than
the pipe through which it is to pass. '
When the thickness of the crust of 1
paraffin renders a c-Ieansing necessary <
this instrument Is inserted in the pipe i
at the oil tie Ids.' The pressure of the
stream of oil drives it forward, revolving
rapidly as it hurries along and
scraping the channel clean.
It turns and twists and cleanses in
this manner throughout its whole
journey and finally drops from the
pipe in the midst of the vast, stream
of petroleum that empties into the receiving
tanks. Its edges are duller
than when it sot out on its journey,
but otherwise it is in perfect condition.
It is at once shipped back to the oil
v.*oils, where it is sharpened and laid
away until its services are again |
