There are one hundred in the herd,more that half of which are pure bred, the remainder being "cataloes," as a cross between a buffalo and a Galloway cow is called," writes E. J. Davison in the February Ladies' Home Journal. "The cataloes have the same hump as the buffaloes, and shaggy hair, but their color varies from jet black to light brown, and they are most readily distinguished from the pure bred by their horns, which are lar ger. The catalonos are also much more tractable, and can be soon be taught to eat out of one's hand. But the full blooded buffaloes—of the Goodnight herd at least—never repose full confi dence in man. Big and powerful as they are they are timid and run awav at the slightest alarm, although they have taken food from their owner's hand from the opposite side of a fence nor will they attack unless wounded or driven into close quarters. Even with thi3 reputation for timidity Mrs. Goodnight does not regard the pure-bred buffaloes as trustworthy, and does not consider it aafo to go among them on foot. Mre. Goodnight also has a herd of fifteen elks. In the great park, two square miles in area, each animal herds with his kind. Even the pure-bloodbuffalo looks with a royal contempt upon his plebeian half brother, the catalo, and the two keep wide apart in separate and distinct group3." Lingering La Grippe Cough. G.

Work Accumulating and Both Sen* ate and House Are Kept Very Busy. IMPORTANT MEASURES UNDER WAY. Southern Interest* Receiving Con siderable Attention!—Unanimity of Opinion RegaWllDg an Iathmlna Canal—Feellngr on Subsidy to Com merce, [Special Correspondence.] Washington, D. C., Jan. 30. Appropriation hills are accumulating in the senate and are rapidly being disposed of in the house, and the chances for an ex tra session are beginning to hinge entirely upon the willingness to be shown by the senate in considering and disposing of in a businesslike manner the great measures which oil the machinery of government and keep it from stopping. The house shows no disposition to lag in its work, however dila tor)' the senate may be in emulating the house's example. It cannot be doubted, however, that with the increased responsi bilities of our government, wth its 75,000, 000 Americans, to say nothing of ita 10,000,. 000 or 15,000,000 other dependents in dis tant parts of the world, the short sessions are proving quite inadequate for the proper transaction of the public buainesa that crowds upon congress. The filibusters in the senate arc bluster ing as hard as before regarding their disposi tion to "hold up" important administration measures, in order to force the president to call an extra session, the manifest purpose of which is to endeavor to discredit the ad ministration before the country, and per haps lead to its defeat. The people, on the other hand, while undesirous of wasting the public funds, are equally desirous of secur ing the benefits that flow from beneficial legislation. To convene congress in extra session in order to supply sufficient time for the disposal of pressing and important mat ters which are denied the proper time re quired for their consideration in the regular sessions will always meet with the people'a approval whenever the president finds him self—for any reasons of congressional neg lect or studied dilatorlness—forced to safe guard the nation's interests in that manner. There is a growing feeling among many of our more thoughtful statesmen that the southern problem will be solved by those in the south who are responsible for the dis franchisement of colored voters, As soon as the necessity for unity of political action among the white voters is removed by the elimination of the possbility of negro dom ination, immediately there will be a di vision among the white voters upon great national problems that are not influenced by race questions. The development of the resources of the south, it is beginning to be seen by the wiser of those of that section, has been held in check by the oligarchy exer cised by white yoters throughout that entire section, an oligarchy that has been a con stant menace to representative government and consequently a deterrent to extensive investment. The possibilities beyond the construction of'an isthmian canal have opened the. eyes of many of the more progressive people of the south, quickened as they have been by their realization of the almost untouched rich and all but exhaustless resources of their own section. This is finding expres sion in various forms, but nowhere more pointedly than in the restive feeling shown by advanced thinkers and real statesmen among the congressional delegations repre senting southern constituencies. Whenever business men get together in the south to discuss matters of public interest relating to their section of the country, they find them selves handicapped and restrained from joining in unity for the legislation which they deem essential to their rapid and per manent development by finding that the only methods at their command clash, with the economic predilections of those who manage their, political affairs. One of the most significant illustrations of this is found in the unanimity with which southern industrial and commercial organi zations unite in pettioning congress to en act legislation that shall build up the coun try's mercantile marine. Freed from the shackles of racial controversies there would be no difficulty in the real wishes of south ern business men finding clear and cogent expressions so frequently and so generally as to force upon their representatives in congress either a change of policies, or else a change of representatives. The direct sub sidy to commerce involved in the construc tion of an isthmian canal cannot be gain said, and the south to-day is almost a unit in its behalf, for the very fortunate reason that, although it is not anew question, it has never become a partisait one. But the very course of reasoning that sup ports the demand for the construction of an isthmian canal,' precisely the same basic principles being involved as there are in the improvement of rivers and harbors, apply without deviation to the problem of restor ing our ships to the seas. The latter can only he solved through a government sub sidy, just as the construction of an isthmian canal has on all sides been conceded to be a mere matter of government "undertak ing"—the latter word taking the place of the tabooed word "subsidy." There can be no doubt that if the Word "subsidy" were applied to an isthmian canal construction, and to river and harbor improvements, as ii has been to a mercantile marine construction and improvement, the prejudices against the word would have long ago disappeared, sc determined are our people to construct canal and improve our rivers and luirbors, and none the less determined are they to build up a merchant marine of our own. Clearly it is seen in official circles here, especially among the more progressive and representative men of the aoulh, that the sunlight of reason is beginning to pierce the gloom of prejudice upou economic matters that has been the greatest draw-back to the south's development, and, as a consequence, to the symmetrical progress and develop ment of the whole nation. Equally obvious is it to those mingling with those people in offioial life here at the capital still influenced more by prejudice than by reason, that nothing will so utterly dissipate the absurd and groundless objection to the suggestion of "subsidy" as to put the policy into opera tion in an effective manner that shall result in giving us a powerful merchant marine in which all sections can take pride and which willsosubstantiallyand enduringly strength en the nation's defenses and promote its in dustries and its commerce. DeWitt'a Little Early Risers. Tbo tun one UttU puis. Their Importance In the Transpor tation of Perishable Products. UNFOUNDED OPPOSITION TO SUBSIDIES. Valne of Ocean Flyer* to the Gov ernment In Time of Peace or War •—Build Up the Nation's Oeean Trade and Augment Its Naval Power. [Special Correspondence.] Washington, D. C., Jan. 18. Considerable opposition to the payment of subsidies to swift American steamships "has developed in the press of the country. The statement has been widely circulated that these ships merely carry passengers abroad to spend American money, and to bring back wines and silks for luxurious cit izens, and that such ships, so employed, are of no help to American commerce. What is wanted, these opponents declare, is car go carriers, the low-powered steamships that take cargoes wherever they offer, and carry them wherever they are consigned, regardless of established line s. And these are the Bhips, they go on and assert, that have given Great Britain her preeminence as a maritime power. All this sounds plausible, and somewhat logical, and, if not analyzed by those hav ing knowledge of the facts, helps to create an unfavorable and hurtful sentiment to ward the shipping bill now pending in congress which properly considers swift steamships, as well as slow ones. As a mat ter of fact, the swift steamships carry those products from the United States that are the most valuable, and, in many cases, the most perishable. Were it not for the fapt steamship California fruits a growing business—could not be exported to Kurope with them, the exportation of Pacific coast fruits steadily grows and prospers. All kinds of dressed meats, hain, bacon, lard and an infinite variety of agricultural or farm products, that have gone through va rious stages of manufacture are sent abroad in swift ships. Swift ships carry the mails and it is es sential that the mails be carried with the utmost rapidity. Invarinbly swift ships are parts of regularly established lines, and they make regular and frequent voyages to and from their terminal points. The swift er, the greater, the more powerful the ships, the more profitable their use is to their re spective terminal countries, but the truth is the'less remunerative they all are to their owners. They tarry the most expensive cargocs that go bqth ways, the manufac tures upon which labor and skill have been expended, and which return the largest sums to their producers. But these are the ships, the large, pow erful, swift ocean flyers, that are most use ful to the nation in time of war. They are at once available as carriers of important dispatches, in cases where celerity is of the utmost importance they are useful as aux iliary cruisers, they can be quickly trans formed into cruisers and then prey upon and destroy the enemy's commerce they can act as scouts for fleets, and keep them informed regarding the movements of the enemy, keeping in touch with the enemy and eluding capture through their swift ness. This was well illustrated by the four great ships of the only American line in the trans-Atlantic trade, during our war with Spain.. They were steaming at full speed between 500 and 600 miles a day, far out upon the Atlantic, keeping watch for Spain's cruisers, ready to report them to the flying squadron at Hampton Koads. It was this scouting work, so effectively done, that compelled Spain to send Cervera far to the south, v. hen but for them Cervera might have threatened if not seriously and irreparably injured our great Atlantic and Gulf seaports. The swift steamships are the nearest at tainment to the ideal, the consummation of the hiighest hopes of the artists engaged in their construction, at once an effective dem onstration of roan's best handiwork, and at the same time an invaluable aid to the na tion when most in need of aid. Such ships are the final outgrowth of regularly estab lished lines where a trade lias been built up at great expense, after many years of faithful effort, and through a service that is thorough, complete and attractive. They arethebest of their kind and a nation whose people fail to appreciate them does not grasp the full significance nor the full value of sea power. The so-called tramp steamships, the ves sels that c-ari'y cargoes wherever destined, are merely the carriers of the surplus car goes that accumulate after harvesting, or at exceptional times, when the reguiar lines are overcrowded- But it is the regular lines that build up a nation's trade—never the tramps—-and they often do it for years at a loss, until they are thoroughly established and have accumulated a paying business. And Britain's sea power lies in her great steamship liaes, not in her "tramps." Clf the agents of foreign steamships are deliberately working to defeat the pending shipping bill—as is being said all over the country—congress should be warned. The American people are not in the mood to see legislation helpful to a great American in dustry defeated in the interest of foreign ers. CC'ongress is not, of course, deliberately conspiring to injure any foreign interests. But if the latter happens to monopolize any great American industry, as they do the carrying of our imports and exports, and congress in legislating to promote this in dustry in the United States does hurt for eign interests, that is a mere incident, not the objective. ICT'If the foreign steamship lines are spending money lavishly to defeat tbe ship ping bill now pending in congress, as is as serted in Washington press dispatches, it must be that the bill in question would hurt the foreign ships. It that be so, it must fol low that it would help American ships. Con gress should not be slow to follow this ar gument to its logical conclusion. CCongress, as a body, cannot escape its obligations to the American people in the matter of providing legislation for the re vival of our shipping in the foreign trade, by saying that this or that bill is not just perfect. The people elect congress to leg islate in the interest of the American peo ple and they have no time to study all the details. Results count. IE7-Members of congress cannot be any more concerned to keep at home and cir culating among American workingmen and business men the $200,000,000 now annually paid to foreign ship owners for doing our foreign carrying than the people are them telves.
