An interesting discovery In the neighborhood of Jerusalem Is describ ed in the quarterly statement of the Palestine Exploration Fund. About thirty yards from the Blr Eynb, or ••Well of Job." which Jewish tradition Identifies with En Bogel or "The Ful ler’s Fountain" (Joshua xv. 7), from thirty to fifty rets have been found in the rock. Their shape Is wholly dif ferent from that of the rets connected with oil and wine presses, and one, at least, la exactly like the fuller’s rets depicted on one of the tomb paintings of Ben-Heasen.

The Senate passed Senator Reldom rldge’s bill to cede to the United States the site of a public building lu Colora do Kprlngs. The Senate, on an adverse report of the committee, voted to postpone indefi nitely Mr. Bradley's House bill to reg ulate rates of Interest. The llonae committee on fish, for estry and game favorably reported H. B. 249, to provide a better protection for the state forests. After having a* much tarn aa gpsalbto over a ground hog day resolution, the House ordered all proceedings In rela tion to the subject expunged from the record. Mr. Burwell's "untl-treatlng" bill was considered by the House In com mittee of the whole and evoked some speeches, both serious and witty. It was recommended for third reading and passage. One of the Senate constitutional amendment bills which has strong barking is that of Senator Taylor, atolishlug the (iourt of Appeals and Increasing the Supreme Court to seven Judges. Senator Taylor bus Introduced seven teen bills aud uow lias plenty to do to keep watch of them. Only two other senators have a larger number to their credit, aud they ure from Denver r.nd Colorado Springs. Mr. Graves’ dental bill was consid ered by the Senate lu €*oinmUtee of the whole and recommended for passage, Itelng so amended that all money col lected under Its provisions Is to go iuto the state treasury. A private i>oll of the monitors of the Semite, made by Senator Ward, is said to Indicate that twenty-one are In fa vor of restoring capital punishment and thirteen are opjioscd to It. One mem ber wns absent and his views were not reported. Senator Stewart's homestead exemp tion law Is a bill that protects tlie property rights of women, since the homestead is at present tin* only real estate that a man cannot deed without his wife's signature. This bill In creases the exemption from $-.000 to $5,000. As the House passed a resolution rit the beginning of the session which gives the revenue bill a clear tight of way on the calendar and precedence overall appropriation billsWteept those absolutely necessary, members are anxiously awaiting tlie report of the Joint finnnee committee on that bill. S|M*aker Montgomery has introduced a bill the purpose of which is to pay nil the old debts of the state by issulug bonds. Mr. Montgomery's bill provides for the appointment of a non-partisan committee of three who shall ascertain all the outstanding Indebtedness* of the state. It is probable that Instead of having different bills to cover the emergency debts of the various state institutions, all uiay be covered by 11. B. 125, by in creasing the contingent item of $05,000, made to cover old debts Incurred to run the state government. It Is thought this plan may present fewer difficulties than that of having a separate act for each institution. Governor Orninn recently api>ointed three members of U» state hoard of health. The only member reappoint ed was Dr. Hubert Work of Pueblo. The two new niemt>crs are l>r. John A. Whiting of Teller county and I)r. O. J. Mayius of Park county. These two succeed Dr. L. K.

No. 120, Introduced by Senator Taylor at the request of the State Editorial Association, has passed the Senate and Is now before the House. fix** the price of all kinds of legal advertising at 7 cents a line for the first insertion and 4 cents for each subsequent insertion. Tlie association feels under many ob ligation* to Senator Taylor for the In terest lie displayed in pushing this bill. F. A. Meredith introduced a bill lu the House providing for tlie creation of Adams county. It Is contingent on tlie passage of tlie Bush consolidation bill, to which It will probably be add ed *as an amendment. It divides Arap ahoe county In an entirely different manner from that presort lied lu the Itush bill. Tlie northern part of tlie county, extending from the Denver line to La Salle, will Im* created tlie county of Adams, of which Brighton will be the county sent. The bill wns re ferred to the committee which is con sidering the Bush bill. The medical bill reported by the Senate Judiciary committee, being Sen ate Bill No. 114, by Mr. Jefferson, wns so altered by amendments as to cut out wlint some termed the monoimly features. As amended, Christian Sci entists, osteopaths and nil others who claim to lieal tlie sick will be allowed to practice. Ail amendment disliked by the framers of the bill is that which provides that all fees collected by the State Hoard of Medical Examiners shall be turned over to the state treas urer for the use of the general fund. Among the last bills introduced in I** Senate on the Inst day for the Intro duction of bills, were two affecting the Carter Museum enterprise and like projects. One was 4o appropriate $40,- 000 for the Carter museum and the" other to give the authorities in charge greater powers ns to jMilice protection and the like. Senator Stratton eaiue forward with an appropriation hill for the Girls' Industrial School, which pro vide* $7,000 to finish the purchase of the property now being used at Fort Logan. $28,000 for buildings and $5,000 for water facilities nml like Improve ments. Senator E. M. Ammons, chairman of the Semite finance committee, has in troduced In the up|>er branch of the house a series of sejiarnte bills to pay the deficiencies of the past two ad ministrations. He did so to get such measure ln*fore the legislature In all •sslble forms before the time for the roduotlon of bills Is pn*«ed. Then • hlchever course is decided upon there ‘ ill be proper bills before the Legists : .re to act upou. State Auditor C;ou »r la credited with promising that If uch emergency bills are passed In proper form he will do all In hia power • o ace that they are paid. After an all day fight the employer's liability bill passed second reading In the Senate by a decisive vote which in dicated that It would pass third read ing and go to the Houa* for rejectk>a or approval. The lahof .taarigge who frequent both bosses sas tfiaf 18fe}r are certain of the passage of the bin by both bouses. In the three Legislatures previous to this the employer’s liability bill haa failed. The great effort of a strong minority was to strike out the word Individuals aud make corpora tions alone, and not individuals as well responsible as employers for Injuries to employes. An amendment to this ef fect was lost. The Buckley resolution to have the State Board of Capitol Managers place the portrait of Otto Mcars In some prominent place In tlie building passed the Senate without u dissenting vote. W. 8. Buckley, the Introducer of the resolution; Scout or Casltnlro Barela, and several others, made abort Miieecbee, In which they declared that such a proceeding was a tribute more than deserved by "the pathfinder of the San Juan." Senator Buckley de clared that Mr. Mears had done more for the development of the San Juan than auy other one Individual. collator James W. Bucklin Is receiv ing letters from ull iwirts of the world In relation to his promised constltu tutional amendment to Introduce the Australian lnud tax in Colorado. He originally had published 1,000 copies of his report on the subject, but this Issue was long ago exhausted and he Ims ordered 20,000 more. Senator Iluckliu has opened letters frem nearly every state and territory in the Union, from muat.of the province* of Canada, from Cuba, the Hawaiian islands, Australia, Alaska and other countries. Many are from memliers of legislative bodies aud tax commissions. It is said to Im* the purpose of the House to hunch all hills bearing on revenue and consider them all iu con nection with 11. B. 1 when It comes from the committee now considering It. This will enable members to sug gest amendments intelligently and com bine the lH*st 1 bought of tlie House in one bill, avoiding a multiplicity of bills |K)sslbly Inconsistent with each other. TUAjtcpuhli<-:iii of the 17th inst. says: Wont from Senator William 11. Meyer is that his rheumatism Is still most se vere and limy prevent his attendance on the Legislature at all. Iu the mean time the other members commiserate with Senator Farwelf. the solitary Re puhlican. He can tiiukc motions, but he has no one to second them. When he is given mi opjiortunity to lie heard it is by courtesy of the majority. If In* Imd Mr. Meyer to assist him he might bring up many matters that lie would like to have discussed. In committee of the whole, the Sen ate considered and unanimously recom mended for passage Senate Joint Me morial No. 3. by Mr. Ammons. This Is a protest ugainst certain orders of the secretary of the Interior in regard to the rights of grazing In the South IMatte and Plum Creek reservations. Senator Amnions said the secretary of the Interior had sent to the settlers In these two reservations blank forms of applications, the provisions of which it is impossible to comply with. If It goes Into effect every one of the set tlers would he driven from their homes: some had been there thirty or forty years and had spent thousands of dollars in Improvements, he said. One of the provisions of this application re quired that no cattle Im* corralcd with in 500 yards of a living spring or stream. There is no such spot on either reserve. Senator Jefferson said the same conditions obtained in the White Biver reserve. He nsked tliut this be Included In the memorial. Senator Taylor thought the memorial not suffi ciently drastic; he would make the language stronger. Tills rullug of the secretary's meant absolute ruin to many worthy people. By unanimous consent the White Biver plateau re serve and the Grand Mesa reserve were Included In the petition. Senator Ammons said In the original blank ap plications signers were required to sui>- scrlbc themselves as "cattle rustlers.” I. e., cattle thieves of the worst sort. Since then, however, the secretary of the Interior had graciously permitted the signers to mark out this word, which he evidently did not understand. Colorado's Debt. Senate Bill No. 228, by Senator Sol doniridge. providing for a constitution al amendment to take care of the in debtedness of the state, gives a state ment of the debt already accrued. The first part of die proposed amend ment Is to provide against tlie piling up of another such debt as that which now faces the state, and the second part provides for the payment of the entire debt which now exists. It is sot forth In section 1 that the state sliull not contract any debt except for the purpose of erecting public buildings for the use of the state, to suppress insurrection, defend the state or. in time of war. to assist the nation al government. The present constitu tion Is construed by many to provide for tin* same thing, but instead of par ticularly Netting forth that moneys shall be expended for the state by tin* governor only In times of war and in surrection, it adds "cases of emer gency,” which has Im*cii construed by governors to cover all manner of ex penses and deficiencies. Tin* express language of Senator Seldom ridge*.« amendment will leave no doubt about this matter. The bill further proposes that the debt In nqy one year for public build ings ahull rttrt exceed one-half mill ou each dollar of valuation of taxable property within the stunt. It is further proposed that It shall not be lnwful for the General Assembly to appropri ate money except for Insurrections ami war. In excess of the revenue for the preceding two years. At present np propriAnon's are made on anticipated revenue. Then It proposes this disposal of the present indebtedness by an Issue of four per cent, bonds to Im* sold at not less than par value: Warrants now held In the public school fund of the state to the amount of 1443,930.5 t On which warrants there will bo due on November 30. 1902. ac crued Interest amounting to 401.459.34 Which Interest will then bo sub ject to distribution among the public schools of the state.

TROUBLE THAT THREATENS CUBA New York, Feb. 7.—Senator Frye of Maine, ranking member of the commit tee on foreign relations nml a member of the Amcrlcnu peace commission which negotiated tlie Paris treaty, is quoted in a Washington special to the Tribune as snyirig of tlie more weighty issues involved In tlie Cuban situation: "First and foremost. I place that stupendous bonded debt which Spain fastened upon the revenues of Culm Just before Hpnuish sovereignty wns destroyed In the Island by this coun try’s armed intervention. That debt, ns ! recollect It. was between $000,000,- 000 and $700,000,000, and not $500,000,- 000, ns Is so generally stated by the newspapers. I recall distinctly the ef forts that were made while we were negotiating the peace treaty at Paris to have us make provisions for the payment of that debt. This we had neither the desire nor the power to do. “I do not hesitate to say that we now owe It to Cuba to get Into the constitu tion by some means a clause plainly, positively and unequivocally repudiat ing that debt. If this is not done Cuba will start with a burden that will crush her. Culm never can pay the stupendous sum that was assessed against her revenues, though I felt cer tain Spain nml France, whose citizens own nearly all the bonds, which they purchased for the most part at very low figures, will dctnnnd full payment Just ns soon as Culm is declared an in dependent sovereignty. By what meth od we can get an outright repudiation of this enormous debt In the Cuban constitution I am not now prepared to sny. That will have to Im* delivered by future events. I am certain -that Con gress cannot approve, reject or in any way amend or modify the Cuban con stitution. The Teller resolution In let ter nml spirit prevents that. But I see nothing In the way of Congress dis cussing the Cuban constitution at the proper time, and advising the Cubans what to do with tlmt instrument for tlieir own good.” MRS. NATION WILL GO TO CHICAGO Chicago. Feb. Arrangements were completed to-day by the Press Club of Chicago and Mrs. Nation’s representa tive. whereby she will lecture at the Auditorium next Tuesday under the auspices of the Press Club.

The joint ists promised, but last night were open ns wide ns ever. Mrs. Nation nil nounccd that she has some plans for future action which will make the jointlsts remember that she Is still in the city, but, of course, she does not divulge them. Mrs. Natlou spent most of the day in visiting the different Jails of the city and praying and talking with the in mates The flrunken prisoners were the objects of her especial solicitude, and she talked to them all In a mother ly fashion. Some of them sobbed while she exhorted them to live a bet ter life, and many of them promised tliey-would not drink any more liquor. The Home Defenders, the organiza tion formed by Mrs. Nation, held an other secret meeting to-day, to which no one but memliers with the pass word were admitted. Mrs. Nation has received curious let ters and telegrams and now Is receiv ing hatchets of many different makes. A man in Junction City, Kansas, sent her a hatchet to-day with many con trivances on It which will tend to make It a dangerous weapon for the joint smashing business. At Dayton. Arkansas, to-day, five members of tlie W. C. T. U. attacked two “bllud tigers” In true Nation fash ion. All the bottles of liquor were smashed, the contents of kegs were poured Into the streets, and fixtures were demolished. The places had long defied the authorities. Chicago Drag Store Smashers.

Senator Warren lias presented to the Senate a memorial of the National Live Stock Association adopted at the Salt Lake City convention protesting against the enactment of the Grout oleomargarine bill. The memorial rep resents that the petitioners represent 126 live stock associations whose hold ings represent an investment of over $6,000,000. They protest against the bill as a species of class legislation of tiie most iniquitous and dangerous kind calculated to build up one indus try nt the expense of another equally Important. They say that the passage of the law would destroy the demand for thnt product of the beef animal, oleo oil. of which 24,000,000 pounds was used during the year 1899 in the manufacture of oleomargarine, and would also Injure the hog industry by a similar destruction of the demnnd for 32.000,000 |M)muls of neutral lard used in 1899 iu the manufacture of that food product. The memorial protests against the 1)111 ns one calculated to en tail an enormous loss on the live stock producers, ruin a great Industry and deprive the working classes and others of a ch<*np, wholesome, nutritious and acceptable article of food. Honor to Whom Honor Is Due. The railroads have been greatly abused as soulless corporations that were grinding the life blood out of the people. The great Galveston disaster has. however, revealed the fact that the managers of these corporations have hearts which are susceptible of being touched by the cries of distress. Their trains were placed at the dis posal of all those engaged in relief work on the coast. Provisions and supplies were carried forward free of charge, committees from every sec tion of the state were furnished trans portation, and when the refugees from Galveston began to pour into Houston and it became a serious question what was to be done with them the railroads solved the problem by furnishing transportation without charge to all who wished to leave and to any point they wished to go. Grand Master An derson informs us that but for this fact Houston would have been overrun with people who had to be cared for, and that suffering and distress would have been largely increased as well as the cost of meeting conditions which would have prevailed. Bro. Anderson desires us, through these columns, to thank the different roads for the great service rendered his committee at Houston. If it were possible we would be glad to see parallel columns. In one of which should appear the acts of these railroad corporations In a time of great calamity and distress, and iig the other the amount contributed by the little two-by-four demagogues who ara always trying to array the preju dices of the masses against any and • T * r F kind of enterprise. —From the Texas Odd Fellow.
