SAOUACKE CRESCENT. K&GUAGH~ - - O~LORADO. Flags of all Indiana regim~nis that fought under Gen Grant in the war of the rebellion are to be sent to the tomb o2 the great commander in Riverside park. The commission that has the mausoleum in charge is collecting the fiats o all the regiments that served at one time or another under Gen. Grant. ,At an experiment in St. Joseph, Me., eat was apparently killed by a shock of electricity carefully administered. Two hours after the heart had ceased to beat the current was reversed and the second shock restored the heart beats, faintly at first, but growing atroJ~ger until the cat was finally re leased as playful and frisky as ever. The Women's University club of New York is the latest organization among college graduates.. The alumnae of the various colleges have planned an or- ganization with the object of building a clubhouse such as those enjoyed by men. Seven hundred women graduates were present at a meeting held, and the success of the scheme seems assured. Experiments are being carried out in the Austrian army with a new port- able oven for field and transport pur- poses. The oven at present in use is a very unwieldy and heavy article and has to be transported in sections. The new oven, however, may be carried in- tact upon a cart, and, if necessary, san be Utilized for baking purposes while on the march. Wu Ting-Fang, the Chinese envoy to this country, uses expressive Eng- lish. "Level-headed," that adjective which lives a life of unceasing activity, falls from his lips as naturally as if he had been born within a mile of the Boston Frog Pond or of the Mississippi river. Possibly the phrase seems the easier to him because he illustrates the quality which it represents. The reichstag bill providing for a third supplementary credit on account of the China expedition fixes the sal- ary of Field Marshal Count yon Wal- dersee at 150,000 marks ($37,500) an- nuaily, with large extras. The division commanders will receive 65,000 marks ($16,250) and extras, and lower officers will be paid proportionately. These are five times the rates of the salarles paid at home. Macaroni seed from Russia is now on the way to the United States, and i~ expected by the agricultural depart- ment to prove the beginning of a new industry. Experiments already made go to show that In some parts of the country these wheats may be grown to better advantage than anywhere else in the world. The first thing, however, must be the ereotlon of maca- roni factories to handle the crop; and it is expected that several will be bull! in St. Paul and Minneapolis. Seventeen fishing boats, one of which is said to have been built ,between 1740 and 1750. form the od~ little fishing village of Carracross, on the west coasi of Ireland. The only building in th~ place whioh is not constructed of a~ old boat is the priest's house, and this is built almost entirely of the drift- wood which the gulf stream piles upon the rock co~t. There is not a tre~ of sufficient sise to give building tim. within eight miles of Carracross; and, though there is plenty of lruiht. ins stone, it is never used for any- thine except building fences aroagnd g~;ato patches. If every woman could (as she should) under ordinary circumstances undertake the care of the sick in her own home this would but accentuate the value and raise the status of the ~born nurses," who, never happy, save in the special exercise of their gift, would then quite sumce for hospital ea~m and the grand occasions of ma- Jor operations. The sight of the cap and veil of the hired trained nurse when imported, into a household with women members scarcely raises one's admiration for the family government. specially When, as too often happens, the* ease is Of the most ordinary de~ erLption.

DENVER LETTER. Denver, Feb. 2.--At last the rush is over--the time for the introduction of bills in the Legislature is past; the grist is all in, wheat and straw and chaff and all; and now there remains for the law-making body the task of thrashing out the total and trying to make something useful out of it. It wlll be a hard task. The number of bills introduced is over 800. Of course many of these are ,practically dupl~ cotes, so that there are really not that number of separate measures demand- ing atten.tion; but there are a great many more than can be properly con- sidered in the fifty days or so that re- main of the session. The very few Republican members who have been left in the Legislature seem to be trying to secure legislation as good as possible, and to help their Democratic colleagues, rather than to hinder them. We are Republicans, seems to be their doctrine, but first all we are citizens of Colorado, and we should do the best we can to give the people good laws, and to prevent the enactment of bad ones, even though It might be advantageous in a party sense to have the majority make as big fools of themselves as possible. This is a good, patriotic doctrine, and the course will no doubt be commended by the constituents of the Republican mem- bers. The Democrats may be safely trusted to enact enough legislation that is bad, and prevent enough that is good to make a very impeachable record; but the state~ught not to suffer more than is really "Secessary on account ~)f the Fusion majority in control o~ legisla- tion. 'Ibere is an unusually fine collection of freak bills this session, many of which were introduced for fau, in the hilarity of the last night of introduc- tion, but some in good earnest. Speaker Montgomery's bill to regulate marriage licenses may seem to some people to come under this head. He would have every person deslring to marry, man or woman, taken before a medical board of three examiners, and put through a severe test as to his or her physical, mental and moral fitness to undertake the burdens of the married state, No- body can get a license who has any- thing the matter with him of a serious nature, either physical, mental or mor- al; and the speaker seems to have re- solved to make the future population of. Colorado as fine a body of carefully selected persons as legislation can pro- vide. If properly followed up by a law providing a quarantine at the state line and forbidding the importation into the state of any persons physically dis. eased or mentally feeble or morally un- fit, then in twenty years this bill will give to Colorado perhaps the most carefully selected population on earth. There is the usual number of bills for Denver hofi~e rule, and it seems likely that they will meet with the o~- dlnary fate. The members from Arap- ahos county have never yet been able to agree on any single measure for the amendment of the present charter of the city of Denver and it does not look as if they would be any better able than usual to agree at this Neither does it look as if they would agree on any temperance measure for the city, the precinct option bill or any other. There are some good hills, as well as some freaks. A serious attempt is to be made, apparently, to put through a constitutional amendment enabling the state to fund at four per cent. its floating indebtedness and take the aUg- ma from the credit of Colorado which is now so great an injury; there is a probability of the passage of a bill to restore capital punishment; and doubt- less some of the members would like to improve the finances of the state. As for the governor, he has kept pretty quiet thus far. He is up against a rather hard proposition Just at this writing, ha~ing been called upon the reprsaentativea of the United Mine Workers to send the militia to Huer, lane county and declare martial there, on account of the" manner tn which the sheriff of that county has g~rformed 1~t~ duties in connection with the coal strike. It reminds me of the days of WaRe, when the state ml lltla wa~ called out and sent to Grlppla ~rs~k to prevent the ~leputy Sheriffs from injuring the striking miners, If Walte were governor now there would b~no doubt of his a.tti~de; he would ta~e It for granted that the strikers were right and call out the militia at once to help them l~ whatever they might wish to undertake. But Mr. Or. man is not Mr. Waits; and he is a bus- iness man, and has had ~nce aS an employer of labor, and it does not yet appear what he will do. For the sake of the good name state it iS to be hoped that he wisely. Strikers have their rights, and that occasion. The new headquarters of the board, with Secretary E. F. Dun- levy in charge, will soon be opened-- probably some day during the coming week. In Washington, the Republican ma- Jority in Congress is perfectly willing to assume the responsibility of pass- lug the shipping bill, but Democratic filibustering seems likely to delay the ])assage of the bill. Senator Teller has developed into one of the anti-imperial- ist obstructors, and Joined Pettigrew in objecting to everything that seems likely to hasten the business of the session. It is a great responsibility which the senators are taking, and one to which they should be held to ae- counL Mr. Pettlgre~ has indeed al- ready been held to account by his con- stituents, and after the 4th of March the capital will see him no more.

There is no desire on the part of the commission, and none either on the part of the Filipino Federalists, that Congress should attempt at once to enact final legislation as to the form of government.of the islands. They real- Ize, as do all sensible men, that the time has not yet come when detailed and final legislation on this matter is possible. What they want now is that the President be granted the authority to establish civil govrernment in th~ Islands as far as he deems it advisable and proper in any particular district and that thus a beginning be made in the task of superseding the military government. 2~he establishment of civil government, with a large degree of autonomy, in those portions of the islands which are now ready for it would be a guarantee to the other* parts, which are not yet ready, that aa soon as they shall show ~hat they are pacified and ready to get along without military rule, the same measure of self.government will be extended to them as has already been given to their more advanced compatriots. The effect would be excellent, and such a measure would go far toward pacify- ing some of the districts in which dis- trust still exists as to the desires and purposes of the government of the United States. Such distrust has been fomented and encouraged by the Agni- naldo party persistently, and with some success. That it should be re- moved is evidently both desirable and nece~ry. There is a measure now before the' Congress, in the shape of a bill intro- duced more than a year ago by Sen- ator Spooner, which provides exactly the legislation desired by the Taft com- mission and the Federal party among the Filipinos. This bill simply p~ rides that the President may, in his discretion, pending fuller and further legislation by the~ Congress, establisl in the Philippine islands such form o~ government as seems~ desirable and necessary. ' .. This is vesting in i~he ~ldent | great deal of diseretioA in a very im portant matter, and it will be resiste~ by the Democrats on the ground th~ no such authority ought e~er to b~ granted to t~e executive, as a matte~ of principle.

Hamilton, SUMMARY OF THE WORK OF THE COLORADO L[ Senator McGuire introduced a bill to provide for the payment of $643 for the funeral expenses of H. A. W. Tabor. A Democratic caucus has decided to proceed to an em'ly consideration of the eight-hour constitutional amendment. In the Se~#te, Mr. Carringer intro- duced a bill ~permitting the use of vot- ing machines by towns, cities and court. ties. Mrs. Heartz's precinct option bill was considered by the House in committee of the whble and recommended for pas- sage. Senate Bill No. 289, by Mr. COpp, pro- vide~ for a Colorado exhibit at the Buffale Pan-American Exposition next summer. After having as much fun as possible over a ground hog day resolution, the House ordered all proceedings in rela- tion to the subject.expunged from the record. Mr. Burw~ll's "anti-treating" 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 backing is that of Senator Taylor, a[olishlng the Court of Appeals and increasing the Supreme Court to seven Judges. Senator W. L, Clayton of Greeley made a strong plea for precinct option in the Senate, urging that the Philp precinct option bill which applies to Denver alone be amended so as to ap- ply to the entire state. A private poll of the members of the Senate, made by Senator Ward, is said to indicate that twenty-one are in fa- vor of restoring capital punishment and thirteen are opposed to it. One mem- ber Was absent and his views were not reported. The introduction of bills in both houses of the Assembly to pay the fun- eral expenses of the late Senator H. A. ~'. Tabor were purely gratuitous so far au Mrs. 2~abor is concerned. She not only did not request lt, but objects seriously to their passage. Speaker Montgomery has introduced a bill the purpose of which is to pay all the o~d debts of the state by issuing bonds. Mr. Montgomery's bill provides for the appointment of a non-partisan eommittee of three who shall ascertain all the outstanding indebtedness~ of the state. The House appropriations committee has decided to make no report on bills, except that they may be printed, until all carrying appropriations are in its hands. They will then be considered together and recommendations made with a view to keeping the amounts ab- solutely within the state revenues~ As the House passed a resolution at the beginning of the session which gives the revenue bill a clear right of way on the calendar and precedence over all appropriation bills except those absolutely necessary, members are anxiously awaiting the report of the Joint finance committee on that bill. Mr. Martin has introduced a bill which provides a trustee to take care of real estate which may remain un- claimed by heirs or devlsees after ad- ministration of an estate has' been closed and. final report been made. This trustee will make regular reports and use means to find heirs, if there be any. The state senators are classified by occupations thus: Eight lawyers, four stockmen, five mining men, three far- mers, two physicians, two merchants, a dentist, a banker, a commission mer- chant, a telegrapher, an insurance agent, an operator of a pumping sta- tioii, an ice maker, a carriage maker, a lumber man, a newspaper man and a contractor. It is probable that instead of having different bills to cover the emergency debts of the various state institutions, all may be covered by H. B. 125, by in- creasing the contingent item of $95,000, made to cover old debts incurred to run the state government. It is thought this plan may presen~ fewer difficulties than that of having a separate act for each institution. Mr. Sprague's H. B. 302 seeks to pre- vent the larceny of small quantities of ore, retorts or concentrates by hedging about the handling and sale of quanti- ties under a ton in weight with restric- tions which enables them to be traced to the place from which they come. Re~ord must be made of all sales and shipments and evidences of ownership be open to inspection. Mrs, Heartz proposes to apply the principle of equal civil rights of men and women to practical purposes. Her H. B. 243 requires consent of both hus. hand and wlfe to any incumbrance of property exempt by law from execu- tion. Several states have such laws, but in those states consent of both hus- band and wife is necessary to convey title to real estate owned by either whether exempt as homestead or not. Senate bill, No. 129, introduced by Senator Taylor at the request of the S~ate E~litorlal Association, has passed the Senate and is now before the House. This hill fl~e~: the: price of all kinds of legal advertising at 7 cents a line for the first insertion and 4 cents for each subsequent insertion. The association feels under many ob- ligations to Senator Taylor for thein- tereet he displayed in pushing this bill. Six labor unions sent in petitions, which were read at the same time, favoring Senator Bucklin's bill and the proposed amendment to the constitu- 1;Ion, making an eight-hour workday. The unions sending these petitions were the Miners' union of Telluride, Teamsters' union No. 1 of Flore~ce, the Federation of Lahor of Florence, Den- ver Trades and Labor Assembly, Brick- layers' union No. 4 of Colorado Springs and Smeltermen's union No. 95 of Den- ver. F. A. Meredith lntroduee/d a bill in the House providing for the creation of Adams county. It is contingent on the passage of the Rush consolidation hill, to which it will probably be add- ed as an amendment. It divide~ Arap- ,~ahoe county in an entirely different i manner from that ~prescribed in the Rush bill. The northern part of the county, extending from to La Salle, will be created the of Adams, of which Brighton the county seat. The bill ferred to the committee which stdering the Rush bill. Election contests are bill for the Pueblo contest as by the House provides for follows: For the expenses of testers, Ponchon. Hart and Park, 42; expenses of contestees, licans, Keen, Dorthenback and $181.11; expenses of committee, Attorney Rtzor for the Attorney Elwell for the were each given $300 for their They presented bills for $5.00, House committee decided to cut~ bills. Among the last bills the Senate on the last day for ~he duction of bills, were two Carter Museum enterprise and projects. One was to 000 for the Carter museum other to give the authorities in greater powers as to police and the like. Senator Stratton forward with an appropriation the Girls' Industrial School rides $7,000 to finish the the property now being used Logan, $28.000 for buildings for water facilities and like meats. Senator E. M. Ammons, the Senate finance committee, troduced in the upper branch house a series of separate bills the deficiencies of the past ministrations. He did so to get measure before the Legislature possible forms before the time introduction of bills is passed. whichever course is decided upon will be proper bills before the ture to act upon. State Auditor ( ter is credited with promising such emergency bills are proper form he will do all in his to see that they are paid. After an all day fight the liability bill passed second the Senate by a decisive vote dicated that it would pa~s third lug and go to the House for or approval. The labor leaders frequent both houses say that certain of the passage of the bill both houses. In the three previous to this the employer's bill has failed. The great effort strong minority wa~ to strike word Individuals and make tlous alone, and not Individuals as responsible as employers for inJ~ to employes. feet was lost- One of the important dueed in the Senate is a stltutlonal amendment offered H, Adams and providing lng of the $700,000 of outstanding ltol building indebtedness.

It provides for the warrants, certificates of ness, etc., outstanding against fund for the building and of the state capitol and therefor to bear four per cent. As the present warrants bear cent. this would make a savin state of two per cent., or per annum. The provisions of biUty bill as it passed second the Senate are as follows: That corporation, company or who may employ agents, or employee, such agents, or employee being in the of due care, shall be to respond in damages injuries or death sustained by such agent, employe or servant, ing from the carelessness, duty or negligene~ of such or which may have resulted carelessness, omission of duty or genes of any other agent, employe of the said employer, in same manner and to the same as if the carel~ssnesss, omission ty or negligence causing the death was that of the employer."
