No one in Omaha has yet been restrained by injunction from breathing, but the matter has al most reached that limit. The most radical move was the issu ing of an injunction to restrain a woman who lived in a flat from talking so much, as her landlord claimed it drove his other tenants away. Possibly we don't talk too much, but we certainly all are too active and lacking in re pose. We need, almost without exception, golden grain belt beer to quiet our nerves and tone us down to slower, more comfort able living. It is pure and de licious and should be in every home.

The Alpine Peaks of Switzerland have their counterpart in our own country, in the Sierras, the Cas cades, and parts of the Rockies. The greatest glacial peak of the United States is Mt. Ranier in Washington, more than 15,500 feet high. This magnificent mountain has 15 or more giant glaciers creeping down its sides and discharging their glacial de tritus into the Columbia river or Puget Sound. A climb to the summit of this is a mountaineering feat worthy of any mountaineer. For 25 centf Chas. S. Fee, Gen'l Passenger Agent of the Northern Pacific railway, St. Paul, Minn.will send to any address an illustarted booklet called. "Climbing Mt.

Pres ident Roosevelt was immediately ad vised of the news. Mr. Beaupre's tele gram being forwarded by Acting Sec retary Loomis to Oyster Bay. Very little additional information concerning the action of the Colom bian senate could be ftbtalfted at the state department The. reason given for thJ rejection of the treaty by the Colombia senate, it is said here, was the alleged en croachment on Colombian sovereignty, which its opponents contended would result from the treaty. Civil War Will Result. Panama, Aug. 19.It is confidently predicted here that civil war will re sult from the defeat of the Panama canal treaty by the Colombian con gress. There is a strong sentiment among the Liberals, who recently were de feated after a long struggle, and also by many Conservatives in favor of se cession by the department of Panama, which includes the entire isthmus, in' order that the construction of the canal may be assured. That the government fears a revolu tion is shown by the appointment of Gen. Lucia Valagoo, a distinguished army officer, as military commander of the department of Panama. What Will Become of Panama? Panama, Aug. 19. The unanimous rejection of the Panama canal treaty by the senate has caused a profound impression here in all circles. Subscribe for The Pioneer.

The only consola tion the isthmians have is that the rest of the republic, "with the ex change at a very high figure and with an upward tendency, will suffer a great deal more. It seems that the govern ment never expected the treaty to be ratified, and it was not supported at all in the senate. Rejection a Heavy Blow. Colon, Aug. 19.The rejection of fTie canal treaty by the Colombian senate has produced tremendous excitement on the isthmus. It was generally be lieved that the treaty would pass with some modifications. There is good reason to suppose that the majority of the members of the senate regarded the Spooner amendment to build a canal by the Nicaraguan route if the Panama route was rejected by Colom bia, as a mere threat on the part of the United States. They are convinced that the Xicaragnan project is impossi ble, and that the United States will again deal with Colombia. The rejec tion is a heavy blow to property own ers here who have been investing heavily on tne prospects of the treaty being ratified. BIG IRRIGATION WORKS. C. P. R. Will Expend $10,500,000 on New Selections of Land. Ottawa, Ont., Aug. 19.

The Canadian Pacific purposes to expend $3.50 an acre in irrigation works, or a total of $10,500,000.

Aug. 10.For the first time in the history of the country the president of the United States yes terday reviewed and Inspected, in time of peace, a great tleet of United Stales warships. The ceremony was a mag nificent and impressive naval spec tacle. It was unmarred by tlw slight est mishap until just at. its conclusion', when the torpedo boat destroyer P.:,.r ry rammed the destroyer Decatur, however, doing little damage. The incident was exciting. It oc curred just at the moment when the president ua receiving congratula tions upon the success of the ma neuvers. The first squadron of destroyers, consisting of the Decatur, Haiubrld^e, Barry, Hale and Chauncey, all under command of Lieut. L. H. Chandler, was approaching the Mayflower at mil speed. The vessels were in close formation. Orders were signalled front Decatur to the other vessels to form a wedge. In executing the or ders the Decatur swung across the bow of the Barry. An instant later the .'_ Barry Rammed Her on the starboard side. As the ships were running at a speed of twenty knots an hour the blow was tre mendous. The Decatur listed sharply to port and seemed to he in serious distress. From the Mayflower she ap peared to be sinking. The Mayflower's boats were manned instantly, but were not lowered, as the Decatur was seen to right herself, in a few minutes she hoisted a signal of "No serious damage." Admiral Dewey ordered Lieut Chandler to proceed with the five ves sels to the Brooklyn navy yard, where such repairs as may be necessary could be made quickly. After the dam age has been repaired the squadron will rejoin the fleet and continue the summer maneuvers. In commenting on the accident Ad miral Dewev said that such an acci dent was a part of the war game and must, at times, be expected. The Grand Review.

Rear Admiral Rodgers, Capt. Brownson, Gen. Chaffee and Gen. Barry, stood on the bridge of the auxiliary cruiser May flower as Hhe steamed slowly down one column of the warships and up the other. As the Mayflower passed each ship in ehe two columns, the yards and rails of each were manned by jakies in white duck, the marines were pa raided and presented arms, the presi dent's salute of twenty-one guns was fired, the buglers sounded a flourish, the drummers gave four ruffles, the band played "Hail Columbia" and the entire crew stood at salute. Entertained by President. At the conclusion of the review President Roosevelt received on board the Mayflower Rear Admiral Albert S. Barker, commander-in-chief of the North Atlantic fleet Ri-ar Admiral James A. Sands, commander of tr*i Carribean squadron Rear Admiral Joseph B.
