Washington Letter.
From Our Special Correspondent.
Washington, D. C, Dec. 25, 1896.
It may be that it is Christmas
thiit has caused white-wingul
peace to suddenly cover the war
bomb which seemed about to ex
plode a few days ago, and that
when Congress reconvenes we shad
again hear the bugle call to arms
for a war with Spain, in connection
with the resolution for the hide
pendence of Cuba that was report
d to the Senate the day before the
holiday adjournment, But it is
considered more likely that the
Senate will put in all its spare
time tighti rg the claim made by
Secietary O'ney and endorsed by
President Cleveland that the right
to recognize a new State or nation
is by the constitution conferred up
on the President alone. This claim
has raised a very important ques
tion. It cannot be considered poU
itical, in a party sense, as the ablest
lawyers regardless of party, both in
and out of Congress are divided in
opinion as to the rightfulness of
the claim. The matter is being
I carefully studied, especially by the
t Senators who" pride themselves on
their knowledge of constitutional
law. At first glance the claim of
Secretary Olney seems preposterous
lut more than one lawyer who
started out to show its unconstitii1
tionality has stopped in doubt and
almost ready to confers that the
precedents seem to be on Mr. 01
uey's Bide. It will probably sooner
or later get' before the U. S. Su
preme Court, but before then some
very leirned speeches on the sub
ject mav be expected in Congress.
Secretary Qlney may be right, but
if he is tlu'rt are a great many peo
ple who jliink the constitution is
wrong and that it should be amen
ded. It is not considered certain by
any means that the resolution for
the independence of Cuba will be
adopted by the Senate. Senator
Hale, who will lead Ihe opposition
to it, says ho is confident of defeat
ing it, and gives the following a
mong other reasons for thas confi
deuce: u We have just gone through
a campaign in which we have pro
mieed peace to the country. Is ii
consistent to pie-ent the incoming
administration with a war at the
very threshold of its existence?
True, there is a very undesirable
cot dition of affairs in Cuba, but I
believe the reports are exaggerated.
At any rate, it is true that howev
er cruel the conduct of the Span"
iards, it finds its counttrpart in
the behavior of the Cubans. It is
their way of fighting, they are dif-
f rent from us. From whatever
standpoint the question is regard
ed, there is no excuse in reason or
precedent for the United States to
interfere in this insurrection, 1
believe the Senate is rapidly conv
ing to realize this and am, there
fore confident of success in the
end." Even should the rerolution
be voted upon and adopted in the
Senate it will never even be allow
ed to get oefore the House. Speak
er Rtcd is opposed to it.

President Cleveland this week

Senator Pettigrew's charge, made !
on the floor of the Senate an hour i
or so before adjournment for the
Christmas recess, that the men
who control the Union Pacific
llailroad have hatched up a scheme
to make that road practically

session, is attracting much atten
tion and seems to be worrying the
railroad lobyists, who thought they
had plain sailing ahead when the
House set aside four davs begins
ning Jan. 7, for consideration ol
the Union Pacific funding bill.
This scheme, according to Mr. Pet
tigrew, is to get possession of the
branch roads which are feeders of
the Uuir.n Pacific, and upon which
the govern ment has no lien, s t h
if the government takes hold of
the Union Pacific road a consider
able portion of its trafic can be di
verted. It is to be worked through
the floating debt of $8,000,000,
which Mr. Pettigrew thinks was
created for the purpose. This float
ing debt is teeured by bouds and
stocks of the branch lines, and Mr.
PeUigrew thinks the best way for
he government to protect its own
nd the in'eresta of those who live
along the line of the U. P. is to pay
that debt and get those stocks and
j;et those stocks and bonds. His
resolution providing therefor was

Senator Butler sees no reason
why anyone should oppose his res
lution, for the appointment of a
committee of three Sedators to en
juire into the feasibility ot apply

Federal government. The report
of such a committee would interest

A Peerless Liniment.
As a pain destroyer and cure for
rheumatism, Salvation Oil is the peer
of all liniments. Mr. Wm. II. Brown,
proprietor of Striebinger House, Cleve
land, O., writes: "I suffered from
rheumatism for twelve years and my
last attack kept me in bed, unable to
walk. I used Salvation Oil and soon
was up and about. An a pain de
stroyer this liniment has no equal."
Salvation Oil is sold everywhere for
25 cents. Try it and be convinced.

We want every reader of the Se
. We are sorry to chronicle the
death of Mrs. Condra, of Pleasant
Hill. She was the mother of eight
children, two of whom are now in
the grave. Of those survi ving her
three are married but live near
home. Mrs Condra has been an
invalid lor twentv years. She
joined the M. E. Church, South, in
1884 and has always lived a con
sistent Christian life. During her
last illness she was patient under
all afflictions to the hour of lnr
death which occurred Dec. 14, 1806.
Mrs. Condra leaves a large num
ber of friends and relations to
mourn h(r loss. As we look at the
bereaved family, it makes us feel
sad. But this behel should con
sole that she has gone where pain
and suUering uo not exist. Each
moment brings us nearer to the
goal which she has reached and
may we so live as to approach that
moment without fear.
Her remains were interred in the
Wesley Chapel cemetery.
J. M. G,
The boys had a rather hilarious
time of it Friday between the tire
works and their natural jubilant spir

well that they can enjoy life while
they are young, for as they give
place to a new generation they will
have to give to them the ?!tme bov?!!
I pleasure;
