They also sought the aid ol other mluers of Fremont county coai camps, and a mass meeting wni called. Word was received that the ltockvale miners had decided not to join the movement, and this fact. It Is thought, will prevent any strike ol serious proportions. The State Land Board has passed up on applications to lease nearly 5,000 acres of oil lands. The board has made a rule that applicants for oil leases must pay at the rate of SIOO a year for each section, whether they find oil or not. Half is payable now, and half In ■lx months. If oil is found, the state gets ten per cent of the gross output. The oil boom has thus put more than SSOO Into the school fund already, with good prospects of material additions.

The sub-committee of the Senate committee on foreign relations, which had been giving especial attention to tlie legal aspect of the reciprocity treaties, has reported Its findings to the full committee, and Senator Spooner was authorized to prepare a written report on the subject. The committee concludes that the power to make commercial treaties rests with the President and the Senate, and that the fact that they involve questions of tariff does not render it necessary that the House of Representatives should have equal opportunity to consider them. The House on the 7th passed tho legislative, executive aud judicial ap propriation bill, the second of the reg ular supply bills. As passed It carries $25,171,9t19, which Is $503,721 in excess of the current law. Only two amend ments of importance were adopted. One provides for a commission to re dlstrlct the legislative districts of Oklahoma, and the other authorizes the President, In his discretion, to cov er Into the civil service the temporary clerical force employed on account of the war with Spain. There are about 1,250 of these clerks still in the service. By the terms of the amendment the President must place all or none of them under the civil service. The House committee on coinage, weights and measures on Friday heard representatives of leadlug manufact urers and business houses of the ad visability of adopting the metric sys tem of weights and measures. Aiuoug those heard were Prof. Elihn Thomp son, of the General Electric Company; Henry Troemer, nu extensive manu facturer; Dr. A. E. Klminerley, con sulting engineer of Philadelphia, and ’ Professor W. W. Crosby of the Lowell School of Theology. The sentiment was entirely favorable to the adoptiou of the metric system. The committee heretofore has secured the Judgment of , scientists on this subject and is now ( seeking to learn whether the practical business world will approve a change. The President has approved, with one notable exception, all the recom mendations made by the army brevtft ; board, of which General MacArthur was president, for the bestowal of the < brevet rank upon all the officers of the i army who rendered especially meritor ious services during the war with Spain and In the subsequent cam paigns In the Philippines and China. The exception noted is the case of The odore Roosevelt, who was awarded the brevets of colonel and brigadier-general for distinguished services at San Juan, Santiago. Under the law these brevets require the confirmation of the Senate, and the nominations have been made out for transmission to that body next week, but, as already stated, the list will not contain the name of the Pres ident. The postoffice appropriation bill has practically been completed by a House committee and will be reported soon. It carries $137,910,598, an increase of $14,133,010 over tlie current appropri ation and of $3,185,022 over the esti mates. The largest item is $41,250,000 for railway trausi>ortatlou of malls.

The extra allowance for fast railway mail service between New York and Washington is omitted, but that for the service between Washing ton and New Orleans and from Kansas City to Newton, Kansas, Is Included. There is no provision for pneumatic tube service, that subject being cov ered In a separate bill. For Increase of salaries of postofflee clerks SBII,OOO Is allowed, and $200,000 for Increase in salaries of railway employes. An extended speech on the pending Philippine tariff bill was delivered In the Senate Friday by Mr. Morgan of Alabama. Speaking of the claims which had been made that there was no lawful government In the Philip pines, Mr. Morgan, with earnestness, said there is a government there, and he was glad to say, a very good gov ernment, suitable to the character of these people and the circumstances In which we found them. It would ad vance the esteem of the Filipinos for the United States If they could have a delegate in Congress, as in the case of Hawaii, said Mr. Morgan. This, he thought, would be no violation of tho constitution. Referring to the work of the Philippine Commission, their per sonality aiul their ability, he paid a tribute to the late President McKinley, who, he said, was the happiest man In the world in making selections of ineu for responsible position, who always could be relied upon to do the right thing at the right time and lu the right way. Representative Lacey of lowa was given a hearing before the House com mittee on irrigation in support of his bill making an appropriation for an ex perimental irrigation system to be con structed at a place designated by the secretary of the interior. Mr. Lacey argued that irrigation under the pro posed dual government system of state and federal control Is on experiment. He thinks the government should se lect the most favorable project and give It a fair chance, developing It slowly. He advocated the building up of nation al Irrigation from the bottom rather than going up on a grand scale, ns is proposed by the committee bill. He In sists that mistakes will necessarily be made, and that It would be better to make them in one project than In many as it will afford opportunity to make corrections nt small cost. An experi mental system, such ns his bill pro poses, he says, can have tlie approval of the East ami can probably pass, while the general bill, in his judgment, cannot get through tlie House. The House passed the oleomargarine bill Wednesday. There was no division on the final passage, the real test of strength having been made on a motion to recommit, which was defeated by a majority of thirty-four. Shafroth and Bell voted with the majority and Mon dell with the minority. The provision to require tlie inspection and branding of renovated butter, which was adopted in committee of tlie whole Tuesday, was retained on an aye ami nay vote. As finally passed, tlie bill is somewhat modified from the form in which it was reported from the committee on agriculture. It makes oleomargarine or Imitation butter or cheese transport ed Into any stnte or territory for use, ile or consumption therein subject to tlie laws of such states or territories, notwithstanding that it may be Intro duced in original packages, and im poses ft tax of 10 cents per pound on oleomargarine made in Imitation of "butter of any shade of yellow." When not made In such Imitation the tax Is reduced to one-fourth of 1 cent per pound. The second section Is intended to prevent dealers, hotel proprietors, restaurant and hoarding house keepers from coloring the uncolored article, by making any person who colors the pro duct and then sells or furnishes to others a manufacturer witliiu tlie meaning of the net. Penalties for vio lation of the act are ft fine of not less than SSO nor more than SSOO, and im prisonment for not less than thirty duys nor more than six months. Throughout nearly the entire session of the Senate Monday the Philippine tariff bill was under consideration. Mr. Turner concluded his speech begun Friday on the legal and constitutional phase of the Philippine question. He held in the main that as the Filipinos had established an independent govern ment in the islands prior to the falling of Munlln, the United States, under the principles of International law, had no right in the islands. Mr. Turner re ferred to the Philippines sedition act as not only unconstitutional, but as “A relic of barbarism too black even for the most despotic and tyrannical gov ernment that now exists on the face of the earth." Mr. Patterson presented an amendment providing for the repeal of the sedition laws applied to the Philip pines. Mr. Teller gave notice of an amendment declaring that it is not In tended by the government of the Unit ed States to permanently annex the Philippine Islands ns an Integral part of the United States, but that it is intend ed to establish, with the consent and assistance of the Inhabitants thereof, a government or governments suitable to their wants and conditions. Mr. Tel ler said he was not going to be dis turbed by the unparliamentary and in decent charge made against those who did not agree with the administration policy, that they are unpatriotic and have not the public's welfare at heart. "Because I stand here with words of sympathy for the Philippines," said he, “I am not guilty of treason, as lias been charged against a senator In this cham ber." Senator Foraker offered an amendment to the Philippine tariff bill providing that the rate of duty on Phil ippine products coming Into the United States shall be twenty-fire per cent, of the Dingley rates. The committee bill provided for a seventy-five per cent rate. THE LEGISLATURE. A resolution of sympathy for the Boers has passed the Senate. ▲ great many petitions, both for and against the Bucklln bill, are pre sented every day. Senator Ammons’ bill compelling rail roads to fence their right of way has passed the Senate. Mr. Montgomery has introduced a bill for submitting a constitutional amendment to legalize a state board of assessors. The Briscoe resolution pledging the Legislature to adjourn Immediately af ter the passage of the revenue bill was defeated, 38 to 10. The committee on banking ami in surance has recommended that Lyttle’s bill relating to the conduct of building and loan associations be printed. By a vote of thirty-four to twenty one the House Tuesday agreed to tbc recommendations of tbe finance com mittee which deprived the board of equalization of power to assess corpor ate holdings and vest that authority iu the assessors. The Senate Investigation committee, which is trying to ascertain who took the roll call on the third reading of the employers’ liability bill, is expected to report some day this week. One Inter ested in the result of the Investigation said last evening that when the com mittee did report “something would drop.” Representative Meade Hammond of Delta county favors permitting the board of equalization to make the as sessments until the people may have an opportunity next year to enact a constitutional amendment creating a state tax commission which will super sede both the Individual assessors and the board of equalization. The committee on Insurance has or iered printed Martin's bill compelling insurance companies to pay Into the state treasury 2% per cent, of the gross amount received by them for premiums. It is believed that a ma jority of the legislators favor the bill and that it has an excellent chance of passing. It will mid at least SIOO,OOO to the revenue of the state. Representative Briscoe has been can vassing the House on the resolution he Intends to Introduce declaring that the only business of the special session la to pass a revenue law. lie said last night that he had received encourage ment from a majority of tbe members. He expects that the House will be with him and that, unless a deadlock with the Senate occurs, the House and Senate will be ready to adjourn next Saturday. In response to the resolution of Sen ator Soldotnridge, asking an account ing of money received under the flat tax, State Auditor Crouter Ims sent the following statement to the Senate: Number of companies on books and notified 21,500 Number of companies that paid. 2.G51 Amount paid under protest. .$32,002.74 Amount paid without protest 21,870.71 Total $64,833.45 It Is the purpose of the lenders of the majority of the House to submit the revenue hill to the Supreme Court when It has passed second reading. The Judges will be asked to give an opinion on the validity of the section directing the assessors to assess cor porate property and meet In Denver to determine upon a basis of valuation. The minority contends that the latter provision practically creates a state board of assessors and that therefore it Is unconstitutional. The House on Wednesday continued the debate on the revenue bill. In or der to avoid double taxation it was de termined to assess real estate and the mortgages thereon as a unit. This was the intent of the old law, hut some assessors did not properly Interpret It. Onerous court fees provided in the orig inal hill were stricken out by acclama tion. The state will lose $-8,000 in revenue, hut it is believed that the fees did an injustice to litigants. The House refused to exempt druggists from the payment of tin* $25 license imposed on the sellers of liquors. The missing roll call on the third reading and final passage of the reg ular session of Tnnquary’s employers’ liability bill has been found. It was folded up and ldd away in the Senate journal, and Its resting place lias been fingered by a score of persons since tbe lalior organizations began tlieir search for the missing hit of paper. To Sen ator J. Frank Adams of this county belongs the credit for the discovery. The find was made Tuesday aftcrnooD during a session of the Senate commit tee appointed to Investigate tbe disap pearance of the roll call. Senator Taylor is considering the in troduction of his bill which failed to pass last session, nlmllshing the Court of Appeals and increasing the number of supreme judges to seven. He lias redrawn his hill and brought it up to date. It provides for seven judges, who Rhnll sit eight years, a new judge being elected every two years. During the regular session the Bar Association introduced a similar bill, providing for fourteen years on the bench. The as sociation tried to effect a compromise with Senator Taylor on ten years, hut he would not consent, the result being tlint both measures died. After the rending of the journal Monday morning Mr. Ralliuger of Park arose to a question of i>ersonal privi lege. The Republican lmd asserted on Sunday morning that he had intro duced a railroad commission bill, know ing that it was unconstitutional and hoping to use it to wring favors from the corporations for his many relatives who were employed by the roads. As Mr. Ballinger proceeded it was appar ent that he was very much affected. "I presented the bill in good faith,” he said. “I believe the Democracy owes It to the people of the state to en act It. Its constitutionality lias been affirmed by the highest court in the land. One provision of my bill I con sider of especial importance, and It was suggested by the death of my sou, who was killed while acting ns engi neer on the South Park, September 21st. It provides that the commission shall lns]>ect the roadbed and equip ment of the roads and see that they are safe. If such a law had been on the statute books my boy might have been alive, and its enactment now will save many lives.” Mr. Cnrringer of Jefferson Is oppos ed to the bill making available the ap propriation for an exhibit at the St. Louis exposition. He does not think that the Legislature can advance the allowance to the first class of appro priations and he believes the measure is broader than the governor’s call. Senator Taylor Introduced a resolu tion, which passed, calling upon the attorney general for nn opinion as to the right of the preseut session to re call or rescind or modify any of the amendments to the constitution sub mitted to the people of the Thirteenth General Assembly at their regular ses sion. The leseon hod been about the prodigal I •on and the entire Sunday school had been properly impressed. The superin tendent asked: “Now, my little friends.

Experts claim that compressed air will eventually be power of the future, supplanting both the cable and the trolley systems.
