ROLL CALL ASKED FOR.
Particular Reason for the Action of Senator Hoar. Washington, March y.—Despite the feet that practically nothing but rou tine business is to be transacted by the senate at the present session the galleries \vie packed with spectators at the opening of the day's proceed ings. After the transaction of some brief routine business, Mr. Lodge (Mass.) jioved that the senate proceed to the sonsideration of executive business. On that motion Mr. Hoar (Mass.) requested the yeas and nays, saying .hat. for a particular reason it was lesirable the roll should be called at east once during the session. The notion prevailed unanimously. 56 sen Itors voting in the affirmative. At 12:15 the senate went into exec itive session. The "particular reason" for a roll ?all. referred to by Mr. Hoar, was ,hat the ivme of Mr. Allen of Nebras ka. should be included thus officially n the roll of senators. Some ques tion was raised as to the right of Mr. Allen to draw his pay in the new con rress under his appointment by the governor of Nebraska. Although Mr. Allen did not vote upon the motion, being absent from he chamber, the calling of his nsme settled his status as a senator. WILL RETARD BUILDING. Disappointment in Manila Over the Spooner Amendment. Manila. .March !«.—Disappointment among American business men here with the limitations of the Spooner amendment to the army bill is increas ing as its provisions become better known. It is considered to be espe cially unfortunate in apparently pro hibiting the issuing of licenses for the cutting of timber upon public lands. If this Interpretation proves correct it will be a bonanza for the frw owners of private timber lands in these islands and the beginning of building activity in all towns will be considerably retarded. There is some talk here of sending a petition to Washington for an extra session of congress, but the fear is general, however, among a certain element that this action might not result in any material good. Regret is expressed here at the fact that congress does not entrust the timber, mining and land questions to the discretion of the representa tives of the administration here. BIG MINE COMBINATION. Company Organized With a Capital cf $1,500,000. Altoona. Pa., March y.—Two big coal mining combinations were an nounced here during the day involv ing more than $1.50U'0o.

It is gener ally believed here that the Lacka wanna Coal and Coke company will become a part of the Morgan combi nation. SITUATION IMPROVED. Conditions in Cuba Discussed by the Cabinet. Washington.

"Wood That Cansfs Sneesiiiic. Among its ninny curious products South Africa includes the "sneeze wood" tree, which takes its name from the fact that one cannot cut it with a saw without sneezing, as the fine dust has exactly the effect of snuff. Even in planing the wood it will sometimes cause sneezing. No insect, worm or barnacle will touch it. It is very bitter to the taste, and when placed in water it will sink. The color is light brown and the grain very close and hard. For dock work, piers or jetties it is a useful timber, lasting a long while un der water. K'here til* Shoe Pinched.

Voting Girl—Oh, yes, but so do other folks too.—New York Tribune. He Canttht the Gtf, There are two men of the same name in the directory. One is a learned savant, the other a patron of the turf and the pool boxes, who spends very little time in the city. The cub re porter, simply because there was noth ing else to keep him from bothering every one in the otlice, was given the name of this man and told to get some good stories out of him about experi ences on the racing circuits. The cub whistled while he looked up the iuwnc and address, and airily served notice that he would want a couple of col umns if he caught that "guy" at home. He rang and was admitted to a fine library, where a scholarly looking gen 'leman had a table covered with open books. "Hello, old man! I'm from The Even ing Yawp. Looking «p pedigrees. hey' "No," In a bewildered sort of way. "I was seeing if I could lend some little assistance to the recent attempts a* constructing a scientific basis for •esthetics out of the result of experi mental nsychometry." "Oh. forget it, Hill. Give that guff to he gillies and the Johnnies. I want von to eive me some hieli toned boss talk, understand something that'll put snarkle.s on the column and make the opposition reptiles wriggle like they wys in a gridiron." But "Bill" had slipped by the collar and was racing down the hall. The next thing the cub recognized was that h" was being led out by the ear with »i U'to pound menial grinning at him. Of course he had gone to the wrong man, but he never thought of that and wanted to light the city editor on his own terms.—Detroit Free I'res*. Two Fainon* Orators. As was anticipated, a vast multitude assembled from all quarter* to hear the famous orator. This was the only occasion on which I saw Dr. Chalmers The sight was an imposing one. The attitude of the audience was deeply reverential, and as he gradually gath ered force and fire as be proceeded it was greatly impressed. The scene was one for the pencil of the artist—the old man eloquent, surrounded by hundreds of rustic admirers, awed to stillness by the magic of his genius, while he himself, energized with mighty pas sion, hi.s face flecked with foam, like a horse which has been driven at its utmost speed. And when "amen" was pronounced a deep sigh was heaved, and the multitude "silently stole away" to ponder on their path and remark in their homes on the unwonted expe rience of the day. The only other speaker I have seeri under the same ki«d of excitation was Professor Wilson (Christopher North). Some of his lectures wore poor and dry enough, but In others he was eloquent and poetical in a high de cree. lie seemed to speak with his whole body, as well as with his whole soul. His eye, "in a fine frenz.v roll ing," burned like a. ball of fire, and the students sat spellbound under the pow er of their great teacher. To have Hoen and heard such men as Dr. Chal mers and Professor Wilson at their best and greatest is a memory to be cherished. There wert giants in tboae days.—Scotsman.
