As It now Is , 20,000 bushels of corn arc used every day In the manufacture of sugar and 730 men arc given employment. They want to moyo and so enlarge their plant that they can use 30,000 bushels of corn per day and employ anywhere from 1,200 to 2,000 work men. U Is understood that the claims of Council Illuffs , together- with these of sev eral other western towns , nre to ho presented to the company next week and takenup for consideration. . * " * There Is no city In the vest that presents any more natural attractions to rnlerrrltes of this kind that are hunting locations tl.nu Council Bluffs. It Is located lit the very midst of the corn belt , where crops never fall , BO that there will n.jver bo any lack of the raw material. The crop ? of three of the leading corn status In the union ran be brought to the doors of the r.'flwry without diniciilty , for In railway facilities ( Vuncll Bluffs Is absolutely tmex'jellod. Ton rail roads enter the city from every direction , and make a desirable U cation for a manufacturing enterprise of any- kind. The new bridge ft the Omaha Terminal company , the third now spanning the river bct.vecm tlii two cities , has Increased Immensely the ( shipping facilities of Council Bluffs. The best water In the world Is to bo had here , and there Is a city ordinance which has been In opera tion for a number of years past exempting all manufacturing Institutions from city taxation for the first flvo years. Surely all these Inducements can not go for noth ing In the eyes of the management of the company. At any rule. Frank Trimble , secretary of the Merchants and Manufac turers association , expects to bo present at the meeting to be held next week ami lay before the company the claims of CJpun- cll Bluffs to recognition In this matter.

An earnest effort has been made by certain parties , and particularly by the local papers , to make It appear that Council Bluffs was on the verge of a smallpox epidemic. For several days the people were kept wrought up with excitement , expecting every day to hear that half the town was down In the clutches of the dread disease. Many who depended entirely on the local press for their Information are doubtless In the same condition still. But those who have been able and have taken the pains to make an Investigation , find that the sensations that were sprung on the people were largely com posed of wind , mid they aro. very "properly disgusted with the sources of their misin formation. The fact Is that Council Bluffs has not been and Is not now In any greater danger from an epidemic of smallpox than any other city that has such intimate connection with Chicago , the fountain head of the disease. Marshal Templeton _ and City Physician Macrae have been b"cseged ! by telephone with all sorts of rumors during the last few days. To the credit of both gentlemen It should be said that they have spared no pains In looking up all such rumors. Wherever there seemed any likeli hood of there being anything that needed attending to they promptly went at it and did what was necessary. Ninety per cent of these rumors wcro found to bo entirely without foundation and the only harm they did was to keep up the excitement. The lack of developments of the last day or two has tended to diminish the popular anxiety , and if the dally papers will cease telling the people that an epidemic may be looked for at any mlnuto It may die out as quietly as It was born. There has been but ono case , and every person who associated with the unfortunate man before ho was quarantined haa been put under lock and key. Since the solitary pa tient was quarantined no ono except the city physician has been allowed to como in or go out. The offlcers who are stationed at the quarantined houses do not even allow people to pass by on the street , but compel them to go around the block In order to avoid all possible contamination. With all these pre cautions being taken it seems reasonable to suppose that the uinall pox scare Is Hearing an end. Supervisor Wadsworth has had the Job of buying supplies for the people who are kept under quarantine , and ho has had his hands full. Ono woman sent him word that she was out of everything to eat , and accompanied her request for eatables with an elaborate bill of fare for him to fill. It Included canned fruits and many other luxuries not usually provided by the county for Its poor. The kind-hearted supervisor furnished her plenty of dried apples , but drew thu line at canvas-back ducks and Now York counts.

Those years have all of them been years of suc cess , and It Is only proper to call attention nt this time to the reason for the great pro gress made. The first and most Important reason for this success llos In the fact that the Boston Store has always tried to give a dollar's worth for every 100 cento and often a great deal more. The second reason Is because the Bos ton Store spares no effort to let the people lnow what they have to sell and make It an Invariable rule to ALWAYS DO A LIT TLE BUTTER THAN THE ADVERTISE MENTS PROMISE.

Mrs. Flnucauo died at 830 ; o'clock Thurs day night at her homo on Fifth avenue , be- between Sixth and Pearl streets , aged 97 years. She Is well known among her neigh bors , many of whom have supplied her meager wants for a number of years past. For some little time she has been unwell , and her great age made It extremely Un likely that she would ever recover. Mrs. Flnticano was decidedly cecentrlc bnd It wan thin fact as much as anything that brought her HO prominently before the public. All during the early years of her life she had a horror of being burled at the county's expense. As she grew old she began to 'savo what little money she had for the purpose of provid ing lor a decent burial when the tlmo Bhotild come. In Oece-nbcr , U'0 , she had the requisite amount , and rho went tea a local undertaker and paid him for nn $ SO casket , a hearse and two carrl'igcs for the funeral. She took the casket' horn- ' r.-.th her , and over since It has been : i prominent fen- 'ture among the scanty furniHiilnsa of her onc-Vbomed cottage. Day and night she would stand by the coffin with nil the ad miration possible , fcellns that however poorly she might fare while alive , her body would bo laid away with proper ceremony when she was through with It. She seemed to take as much pride and eo-'ifort In the sight of her casket as ordinary .pocplo vculd in a fine traveling outllt "or a European tour. February 1 was her birthday , and It also marked the close of bur life. The remains were laid In state In St. Francis Xavler's church last evening and will be burled this morning at 9 o'clock , Rov.

He discussed at some length Sir. Blount's report. If Hawaii , was an nexed wo would have to annex San Do mingo , or nny other Island which asked to bo taken In , ho said. Wo were great enough and big enough already. All wo wanted was just taxation and commercial freedom and we would bo the greatest na tion In the world. "The flag that floats above this capltol , " ho concluded , "Is the emblem of honor and justice , and we cannot afford that a minister shall go unrebuked who has made It an emblem of Intrigue and lawlessness ; wo cannot allord to encourage spoliation to darken the history of the United States by acting as crusaders against a peaceful country. Let Hawaii work out Its own sal vation , and let the American republic , the champion of progress , adhere to the tradi tions of the past , justice to all and entan gling alliances toward none. " ( Applause. ) At the conclusion of Mr. McCreary's speech , Mr , Blair offered an amendment to the McCreary resolution ns follows : Rexolvcd , That the house approves the recosnltlon of the existing provisional gov ernment of Hawaii by the last and present administrations , and will view with satis faction the maintenance of a policy which shall tend to consummate In the near fu ture , with the consent of the people , the annexation of these lalandH to this country , or some other arrangement which will fully preserve and promote the mutual Interests of both Hawaii and the United States. 11 ITT KEPLIKS TO Jl'CUEAHY. Mr. Hltt , the leader of the republican mi nority of the foreign affairs committee , re plied to Mr. McCreary. Ho made the point that the resolution of the minority consid ered the vital questions which every ono recognized In connection with the recant af fairs In Hawaii. The attitude of the ad ministration on the ques'tlon of annexation was not yet /known. / He spoke of the strength of the provisional governmentwhich had maintained Itself for a year against all opposition , and yet the pr3ent administra tion had attempted hari-kari In a foreign country fully capable of governing Itself. In all questions of foreign Intervention ono of two causes was recognized as necessary to warrant the Intervention. Ono was self- preservation , which warranted a government In sustaining Its rights by foreign Interven tions Itself. The other was to prevent or overcome cruelty. But neither of these causes operated to warrant our intervention with the provisional government. On the con trary , our Intervention was to restore a throne to n queen whoso character had been well known. It was In behalf of a woman who had told Minister Willis , while dhtvers ran down his back , that she would behead a great number of her people. Mr. Hltt was warmly applauded at his severe arraignment of the queen. Bomba , by his fierce cruelties , had awak ened the horror of Europe , but his brutali ties did not com par a with the Bartholomew's day massacre , with which this queen In tended to celebrate her return to the throne. WILLIS OBEYED ORDERS. Willis had acted like a soldier , and had performed the loathsome duty assigned him. His dispatches showed how his decency re belled against the performance of such n task. Ho pictured the condition of affairs during the reign of terror , existing up to the tlmo Minister Willis * purpose were disclosed , For 100 years the United States had been first to greet a new republic and the last to uphold a tottering monarchy. But now this policy was changed. The gentleman ( Mr. McCreary ) had set forth the doctrine for the first tlmo that republican Institutions could not bo established or maintained until a vote had been taken and the republic had been approved by popular vote. Mr. Hltt referred with pride to the busi ness success of the Americans In Hawaii. He concluded with a most terrific arraign ment of Mr. Cleveland , saying : "Think of It , think of It ! While ho had In hand that letter from Minister Willis reciting the story of the history of that bru tal Interview with the queen In which she demanded the holocaust of the property and the slaughter of American citizens , ho sent out still another order to overthrow the re publican form of government and put back that wretch In power. ( Republican applause. ) WILLIS' INSTRUCTIONS. "Minister Willis' Instructions amounted to this ; Go find that woman who'ja vice , folly und extravagance was checked by the People last January ; te.ll her It Is the deter mination of the president to restore her , ak for amnesty for the revolutionists and then 20 to thu provisional government and got It to relinquish Its power. "That was the program and nil there was of It. But 'the boit laid plans of mica and Wflu gang aft agloe. ' "ThU romantic quean of the beautiful I Alan da was not what she hail bceu pictured.

WASHINGTON , Feb. 2. The day In the senate was not an eventful one. After nn hour's debate early In the session Senator PefTcr'H resolution was adopted , calling upon the secretary of the treasury for the names of persons and corporations bidding for United States bonds and the amount of their bids and the rate of Interest. The resolu tion of Senator Stewart denying the au thority of the secretary to Issue the bonds at this tlmo was then taken up , nnd con sumed the remainder of the day. Senator Vllas made the principal argu ment In opposition to the resolution. The senate adjourned without action on the reso lution. A joint resolution authorizing the secre tary of the treasury to provide suitable boxes for cases for the bronze madals awarded exhibitors at the World's Colum bian exposition was reported by Senator Vllas and passed by the senate. Senator Quay of Pennsylvania presented an amendment embodying several new sec tions to the tariff bill. These sections pro vide for the free coinage of silver and for tlm purchase of 14,125 ounces of line gold montlily and the Issue of treasury notes In payment therefor , and the repeal of eli ex isting laws providing for the Issue of bonds. PEFFER'S RESOLUTION. The resolution of Senator Pcffer calling upon the secretary of the treasury to Inform the ( senate how many bids for bonds have been received from persons and corpora tions "and the names of the bidders , then came up for consideration. "It has never been the custom , " said Sen ator Sherman , "to give the names of the In dividual ! ) who make the offers. To do so might be injurious to the public credit. " " 1 want the names , " persisted Senator Pelfer. "If It Is not proper to give them , let the .senate say BO. " "What reason exists here why the names of the bidders shall not bo given ? " Inquired Senator Allen of Nebraska. "In the first place , " replied Senator Sher man , "because the roque.it has never been made. The second reason is that it is not good policy to disclose the private affairs and business operations of private citizens. I have no objection to thu names of the cor porations who have made offers being called for , although J doubt the expediency even of that. " , Senator Harris of Tennessee could see no reason why the names of _ persons could be of any Interest to the somite. The suggestion was niado by Senator Stewart of Nevada that the names of the" original purchasers might , be very Important It the validity of the bonds should later be questioned when they are presented for pay ment. In answer to his opponents. Senator Potter said he ( Irmly believed that the financial af fairs of the government" are not managed by the government olllccrs , but by speculators In New York City. ADOPTED THE RESOLUTION. Senator Cockrell declared to Senator Stew art that the time would , never come when the question of refusing Jo pay these bonds would be raised. AfUT. Ofurther discussion Senator Sherman wlthclrow his motion to strike out and the Peffer resolution was adopted without amendment. The resolution of Senator Stewart , de nying the authority of the secretary of the treasury to Issue United States bonds at this time , came up In regular order , with the various amendments , providing that "the money derived from the sale of such bonds can not be lawfully applied for any other than the purpose of redemption. " To this amendment Senator Vllas pre sented the following amendment : "Ex cept In accordance with such acts of appro priations by congress us may require the use of same to discharge such appropriations. " In speaking on the Stewart resolution , Senator Vllas complained that Its Introduc tion had been delayed until the last hour , when it came as a blow at the public credit. He argued that the resumption act not only required the secretary of the treasury to bo ready - in the first Instance to redeem greenbacks , but to be thereafter always ready to redeem them. The redcemablllty and convertibility of the greenbacks was to be ever continuing and never ceasing. "Congress may , by any act of appropria tion , " said Mr. Vllas , "direct the secretary of the treasury to pay out any portion of the money In the treasury , whether derived from the sale of bonds or not. Whenever con gress authorizes the payment out of the treasury of any money not otherwise appro priated. If there Is no. other money In the treasury except the gold , ho thereby Is au thorized to make the payment from that fund. " TELLER'S INTERRUPTION. "There h a question , " Interrupted Sen ator Teller , "as to whether the gold reserve - servo Is not money otherwise appropriated. When congress says to the secretary of the treasury he may for a specific purpose borrow money , there Is no obligation upon him ; and It Is breach of public duty on his part It ho uses the money for any other pur pose. " "There Is no Epcclfic amount of the reserve - servo fund , " said Senator Vllas. "There never was n limit fixed to It. Whatever congress directs the secretary of the treas ury to ilo ho must do. His duty Is lo obey congress. Congress Is the board of direc tors of this treasury bank , and ho Is their agent. " At 4:115 : the clerk of the house appeared with the tariff bill , nnd Senator Vllas sus pended until It was duly reported to the senate. By request of Senator Voorhees it was laid before the senate , and on his mo tion referred to the finance committee with an order that 2,000 copies be printed at once for use of the senate. Resuming his argument. Senator Vilas said he would have considered the secretary of the treasury as unworthy of belief If ho had not nt this tlmo , after repeated attempts to arrive ut some Bolullon of the question , taken proper steps 'to. ' 'fortify the treasury against the perils whlolrboset It. The trou ble with the treasury now , ho wont on , does not arise t > o much from the appropriations which have been matlpul'S , It arises from two other measures , both ofcwhlch , were enacted In the Fifty-first congress , when the repub licans held overwlle'lmfng power In both houses of the government , ono of these meas ures being the McKlnlcy law , by which the revenues are diminished until they are In- sulflclent to meet the appropriations , and the other was the Sherman law , by the opera tion of which disaster'was , precipitated upon the country.

The Joint eon- Brcsslonal committee , conRlsllitK of mem- berH of each bouse of congress , appointed to Inve.'UIgnto the personnel of the navy , tins bcRtin Us preparations for the work In hand , nnd a 'determination IH exprcy-trd to make the Investigation ns thorough nr may seem practicable , with the hoiie of belnff nlile to insike some recommendation which will remedy such cvllfi UH may exist. The nocd of reorsnnlzatlim to wliloh thlx Investigation looUs IH not new. Its Im portance has long been recognized by the Navy department nnd by congress , but It has remained unacted upon bvcmipo of u want of time and n failure to secure con certed action. It , Is proposed to try to Und u proper means for the organization of both the staff nnd line of the navy , ns well an to provide n means of promotion for thu enlisted men , and lo Und a means other than that of seniority of service for secur ing promotion. The advocates of n change In the regula tion controlling the line otllrers , Including the Ts'avy department olllclals , contend that a radical modification of existing laws must be made to prevent the personnel from be coming totally Inelllclenl from congestion and paralysis. They say , Ibal owing to various muses , the retirements uru very slow , ami chances for promotion few. Tln-y argue from this , and other similar Illus trations , that the present system of promo tion by senlorlly of rank , only prevents lit many Imitanccs the promotion or many olll- cers who should be advanced In rank on account of merit , and the principal end In view with the committee will IK- the ilnd- Ing of a means of bringing about a change In this respect. There will also be an effort to provide a moans of promotion of the enlisted men of the navv , as It Is believed thai this will prove a strong Incentive tu more elllclent service. Il Is pointed out that the chances of preferment for this class of our seamen nre fewer than In many European countries. The committee will go Into these and other uuestlons , and hopes to bo able to report a bill which will receive the sanc tion of the Navy department and congress and thus become a law.
