RANGE BORROWS NO TROUPLE Renewal of the Triple Allien.. Menace to Other . ';. Countries. PARIS, June 29 The French press halls the renewal of the triple alliance between Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy, which was effected by the signing of a treaty in Berlin yesterday morning by the Imperial chancellor of Germany, Count von Buelow, and the Austrian and Italian am bassadors to Germany, with considerable equanimity, and expresses the belief that the strength of the alliance has been much enfeebled by dissensions with regard to the tariff question and a better understanding with Italy and France. The press con siders, moreover, the possibility of a fur ther Italian-Franco alliance deprives the triple alliance of much of its force. The Temps says: "A tariff war Is sbout to graft Itself upon this political alliance and the future will teach us bow far an conomlc war Is compatible with diplo matic understanding. Recent development have modlded, if not the cordiality and Intimacy between the powers of the triple alliance, at least the efficacy and practical value of the league." Le Journal des Debate Is convinced that the new alliance will not be the eame as the old one, cither In spirit or letter, and recalls the declaration of Slgnor Prlnettl, the Italian minister of foreign affairs, In the Italian Chamber of Deputies, that "m military or diplomatic conventions will be appended to the new treaty." This paper concludes by eaylng: "The triple alliance has been renewed under unfavorable conditions, and these should be taken Into account, not only In consid ering its present renewsl, but with regard to the prospects of a further renewal of the alliance later." DOES NOT PLEASE THE BEAR Rossis Had Counted on Longer Con tinuance of War In Africa. ST. PETERSBURG, Juno 29. The fact that no representative of the court or of the ministry has called at the British em bassy to offer the sympathy of Russia in the matter of the illness of King Edward baa occasioned much comment and Is gen erally attributed to Russian chagrin on ac count of the conclusions of peace In South Africa. It Is said upon excellent author ity that Count Lamsdorf, the minister of foreign affairs, admitted that this peace had upset Russia's calculations, which were based upon a much longer contin uance of Great Brittaln's difficulties In 8outh Africa. Count Lamsdorf Is reported to be particularly nettled because Great Britain did not consult the Boer delegates in Europe In regard to peace. POPE'S GIFTJTO ROOSEVELT View of City of Rome, Done In Mosaic, Will Be Presented by Bishop O'Gormnn. ROME, June 29. The Right Re. Thomas O'Gorman. bishop of Eloux Falls, 8.

WASHINGTON. June 29. The work of congress Is now practically closed, so that it Is possible to sum up the record of what ha been accomplished during the last seven months, which constitute the first session of the Fifty-seventh congress. The session has been marked by excep tional business activity with many ques tions of far-reaching interest. With the exception of the Cuban reciprocity bill most of the larger subjects of general leg islation have been enacted as laws or will become such before the session closes. Notable among these larger measures Is the Isthmian canal bill, which consum mates the efforts of half a century to link together the waters of the Atlantic and the Pacific. Aside from Its nstlonal and International Importance this bill probably Involves a larger sum of money than that covering any other single undertaking by the government outside of war expendi tures. The Philippine civil government bill Is another measure of far-reacblng impor tance, extending to our remote Pacific pos sessions a system of Internal government. together with coinage, currency, banking. corporation, timber and homestead laws. Important General Laws. Among the other Important general laws enacted are those repealing the war rev enue taxes, extending and making more effective the Chinese exclusion laws, estab lishing a tariff for goods to and from the Philippines, extending the charter of na tional banks for twenty years, establishing permanent census office, restricting the sale of oleomargarine by placing a high tax on Imitation butter, providing a con sular and diplomatic service for Cuba, es tablishing an extensive system by which the government will aid In the irrigation of the arid sections of the west. The repeal of the war revenue taxes re duced taxation 173,250,000 and Is said to be the largest single reduction of taxa tlon ever made In this country. By this step the last of the taxes Imposed at the beginning of our war with Spain was wiped out. The Philippine tariff act Imposes 75 per cent of the Dingley tariff rates on ma terials coming from the Philippines to the United States and also Imposes on articles entering the Philippines from the United States the rates of duties established by the Philippine commission. The oleomargarine act results from sev eral years of agitation. It place a rate of 10 cents a pound on substance colored to Imitate butter. Of Import to the West. The irrigation act 1 of special Impor tance to the development of the 'west. It, creates an irrigation fund In the Treasury department, into which Is to be paid the proceeds of the sale of public lands In the arid state. This fund In turn Is to be used In storing water and establishing an Irrigation system, the irrigation sections to be open to homesteaders, who are to be charged a proportionate share of the cost of the improvement. The Chinese exclusion law continues ex elusion "until otherwise provided by law' and also applies the exclusion to the "Island territory under the Jurisdiction of the United States." Aside from these Important laws there are a number of other measures of gen eral Importance which have passed one or both houses, but Lave not progressed to the dnal stage. These include the anti anarchist legislation, which grew out of the assassination of President McKlnley. Bill restricting anarchy and throwing safe guards about the president have passed both branches of congress, but it has been Impossible to reach an agreement in conference, ao that the subject goes over until next December. Statehood Bill Awaits Senate. A bill giving statehood to Arizona. New Mexico and Oklahoma, known as the on niDus statehood bill, passed the house and the senate has determined to take up tne matter early In the next session. The ship subsidy bill secured early at tention in the senate, but the end of the session has come without the measure being reported to the house. As it passed the senate, the bill grants graded sub- sidles to steam and sailing vessel of American tulld. In the house It has been deemed desirable to let the subject go over until ' the short session, when It Is expected that a bill on the subject will be reported and urged to passage. The bill creating the Appalachian forest reserve, Including a vast tract In the Ap palachian mountain section of the south has received favorable attention In both houses, but has gone over for dnal adjust ment ot differences until next December, Another bill passed by the senate and likely to become a law changes ths marine hospital service to a national health bu reau and gives the bureau larger power and facilities for co-operating with the state health authorities in quarantine and health affairs. Paclfle Cable BUI Retired. Ths bill to establish a cable between the United States, Hawaii and the Phil tpplne wss retired by defeat in the house of representatives. Several other measure have advanced to a certain atage and have then halted without much prospect for further ad vancement. These Include the bill for the election of United States senators by direct vot of the people. It passed the house by practically a unanimous vote, but In the senate has received little attention and Is not likely to pass. The house passed a bill relating to th Immigration laws, codifying and amendln these laws relating to Important changes It baa been reported to the senate, but there Is not much prospect of Its passag at this session. The bill defining th meaning of con piracy in injunction eases passed the house of representatives, but has not made much progress In the senate. On the other hand, the senate passed an lmpor taut measurs, creating a Department of Commerce, to be presided over by a cab Inet officer, but It has mads no progress In th bouse, noj having been reported from the committee on commerce.

Mr. Fallon said tonight that tbe miners were Just as determined as ever and unless there was arbitration tbe strike Is destined to go on. Tbe na tional board member also denied that there was any suffering among the strikers. He said so tar there was no privation and not likely to be any for a long time to come. The local operators seem to be a unit In saying that a break in the miners' ranks may come any time now.

One operator said tonight that the number of washerles now in operation was greater than at any time ince the strike began and that there waa only one step between operating a washery nd a colliery.

BOTH SIDES ARE CONFIDENT OF SUCCESS Agister and Firemen Beam to Hold an Important "Ktj, BUT THEY ARE RELUCTANT TO INTERFERE All Men on Trains ire Bttiifltd with Their Condition. SYMPATHETIC STRIKE SEEMS IMPROBABLE Union Machinist end Boiler Maker Assert that Company Cannot Get Along Without Their Services Very Long. The Union Paciflo machinists' strike formally begins today. The regular order authorized Saturday by President James O'Conneli of the Internstlonal Association of Machinists at Washington will be Issued early this morning by Vice President T. L. Wilson, who, with Vice President W. Web ster of district lodg No. 11 ot Cheyenne, will assume direction of the strike. Th machinists of Omaha and thoss from other places who are In the city will meet thla morning in Labor Temple and hear th formal declaration read by Mr. Wilson. This strike order will, as has been stated. apply to every machinist and helper t hrn,, .Vrti, t ,1 , .... UBUvUi mo mine system, mere are S00 machinists and between 800 and 400 helpers. Aside from these la a large num ber of roundhouse employes who are ex pected to obey the msndate for a caneral tleup, but the uncertainty of whose courss makes It impossible to estimate th pro portion that will Join the machinists. If all the men in the roundhouses should walk out, as the machinists believe thev will. the total number. Including; boilermakera and moulders. In the movement, according to strike leaders, will be about 1,500. Xo Definite Figure. Officials of the road say this ts too hlrh. that the strikers have greatly exaggerated the figures. Neither side, however, will n-nl'r a definite statement aa to the exact ru nl,rr idle until tonight or Tuesday. J ho machinists and boilermakera. who are united In this strike, profess to be serenely confident of victory. The company officials likewise still maintain their faith In th success of the Union Paciflc'a cause. Th key to the situation seems to be held by the trainmen. Their action, whatever It may be. I regarded aa the determining factor. It is believed that unless th striker's can tie up the operating depart ment or tne railroad their fight will ba In vain. Talk for Engine Men. A representative of the firemen and en gineers was interviewed Sunday by a re porter for The Ba upon the attitude of the brotherhoods. '. "So far we have not considered th matter. In fart, wa hav nM utti. . tention to the strike movement, as w have not felt that w wre directly con cerned, but now things have .reached that stage .where we are compelled to view the situation with seriousness." he said. "There has been no talk among us at any of our meetings aa to what the firemen and engineers ought to do. We hop there will be no occasion for any. But ol course we may have a part to perform before the strike is settled. If tb en tire system Is tied up In the shop and' the machinists and boilermakera call on us to co-operate In a sympathetic strike. It will have a strong Influence upon us; there is no denying that fact. Or It th shop are emptied of union men and the company fills In with "scab" boilermakera and machinists, it might be necessary for the brotherhoods of both the firemen and engineers to take action. There 1 no question but that these things would hav a vital Influence upon us, but how great I cannot and would not say. Engineers and Firemen Satisfied. "As I said before, we do not want any trouble and hope It will not be necessary for us to get Into this fight. We hav no provocation among ourselves to tak the Initiative. We are working under th best scale we ever had. At our conference with the officials soma months ago we had everything granted us that we could ask for. An agreement was drawn up and signed which was made operative for on year, beginning the first of last January, ao of course we are under that agreement yet and have no desire or Inclination to break faith with our employers. W do not believe there Is anything we could ask for that would benefit our own Interests, and consequently we have nothing to ask. We are perfectly satisfied. "I really look for something to drop in this strike matter by Monday night. It may be that within a day or two then w could speak with precision aa to our own position. We would not, however, hav tb power ot ourselves to Join tbe other men In a sympathetic strlks even If we had any such desire, for the provisions of our con stitution make It obligatory upon us to sub mit to the order of our grand lodge officers la such case. Perfect Harmony with Company, "I want to repeat before you go that th firemen and engineer are In perfect har mony with tbe company, have no cause of their own for discord and hope that they will not be drawn Into this strike." Asked If the machinist would appeal to the engineers and firemen for their co operation in order to make the strike ef fective. Vice President Wilson said: "No railroad can operate without ma chinists and bollermakeri." "Then you mean, do you, that th Union Pacific will be unable to get machinists and bollermskers outslds of tb union?" waa asked. "That's exactly th proposition." h re plied. ! "Well, do you think you win call on tbe englneera and firemen for help?" he was again asked. "To be frank with you, I do not beltev It will be necessary. Those matter will simply shape themselves by natural conse quences. We have nothing to do with th trainmen nor wish to Interfere with their sffalrs, but I repeat tbat no road can carry on Its traffic affair without bollermskers or machinists." And then with a meaning twinkle of his eye be added: "I think tbe railroad company will And out that machinists and boilermakera ro, very essential In their business." Coarse of Car Builders.
