to Make Few Changes in Measure as It Comes From the Ways and Means Committee WASHINGTON March re publican senators of the committee on finance will begin a stematic study of the new tariff ill as soon as copies are obtained They feel the importance of press ing the measure to a speetiy ueleruiin jation ami Senator Aldrich as chair man ot the committee has said that he would make an effort to have the bill reported as soon as possiule alter its passage by the house The bill cannot of course be of ficially considered by the committee as a whole until after it has been passed by the house and transferred to the senate in tb3 usual formal man j ner It is believed however that the ouse will make few changes in the bill after it is reportedfrom file com mittee on ways and means and the republican members of the senate com mitiee on finance feel that they will lave in the house committee bill as ood a basis for their operations as hey will have after that measure has received the consideration of the house itself Many Changes in Senate It is expected that many changes will be made in the senate and that most of them will be suggested by the finance committee In the senate the smaller states have a greater propor ionate representation than in the louse and if the bill as it comes from the house should lail to give what it s considered adequate protection to some oftheir industries there would undoubtedly be a strenuous effort by the senators from those states to re store the desired equilibrium The thinly populated states of the west are especially in the protection of wool hides fruits lead ore cop per etc and will unquestionably re sist any effort to discriminate against them and they would regard as such effort the placing of any of these ar icleB onthe free list West Not Represented As the committee on finance is at present constituted the far west Is without representation on it There is little doubt however that in the reorganization this defect will be remedied but even though there should be no change in this direction the senators are still confident that the committee would take care of their interests If they should fall to do BO they will make their fight on Jhe senate floor While Senator Aldrlchs hope is to have the bill In shape to be reported soonafter it comes from the house much will depend upon the character of the house measure and the dis position of the members of the Inance committee Unquestionably the controlling desire In the senate will be to make the bill a protective measure and it is not be leved the republican senators will per mit their desire for haste to cause hem to sacrifice ibis feature of it RESTORED TO HEALTH IN THIRTY DAYS Jungle Woman No Different from Her Civilized Sister Experiences Same

Correspondence CLEVELAND Ohio March The women of tbe Kongo nnd the women of Chicago are actuated by identically the same moral Instincts says Prof Frederick Starr of tbe University of Chicago who has vascll Intod between the drawing rooms of civilization and the thatched huts of barbarism to find out And now Mrs Gabriel Magnire one of the few American women who knows the heart of Africa as she does the cities of civilization goes even further and declares that the African often shows even finer feeliugs than her more favored sisters On her honeymoon trip Mrs Ma gnire accompanied her husband wbo was a Baptist missionary to the Mayombi tribe on n 300mile journey up the Kongo She was carried 205 miles iu a hammock I have seen Mayombi girls sold in marriage and they cried and beat their arms in an agony of protest she said But I have never seen one who would sell herself as some of our American girls do And mother shall never forget the first ex hibition we saw over there On the ground lay a boy with his neckin a thick wooden yoke An old woman was writhing on the ground beside him Tbe boy was to be sold beyond the mountains course webought him and gave him back rtb The price was an old coat worth about 50 cents Those women dressed only in a necklace of beads or copper iron brace lets and anklets are as modest as our women Shame doeant result from women suffer the tor beauty doctors The scantiness of costume or the lack of it but from leaving off what we are accustomed to wear I have seen little girls blush with shyness wheu spofcen to by a stranger just as our little girls do Oh yes 1 mean blush Its a general mistake to believe thnt the interior African is black He is the color of a new penny 41 As to vnnity there Isnt much dif ference between savagery and

muke a profit A man with more tlian thirty wives Is a jungle multimillion aire And tbe same coquetry that makes a woman try to attract a man here is also in the makeup of the savage roman The bargain

Ind Marcli That Charles Darwin originator of the theory of mans descent from inferior animals was the greatest friend of tne Christian religion since Jesus was the thought of a sermon preached by the Rev Henry B Taylor the new pastor of the First Universalist church here It seems to me that Darwin Darwinism have done more to fluence theology and arl in tnan any reform or reformer since Jesus said he That Darwin confessed his in aptitude for metaphysics and confined his studies and expression of them to his own peculiar province does not greatly signify in this connection Men especially if they be writers of the ology can not wholly escape the pre valent ideas of their time have moved into a more habitable and cheerful world because of the great work which Darwin accomplished HE WAS OUT OF PRACTICE SELVILLE March curious fact is recorded here The local ex ecutioner died his death being due to remorse For several years lie had not carried out any executions Re cently he was summoned to Cordova to inflict the penalty on some crim inals The impression made upon him was so painful that he was unable to face the ordeal when summoned to j execute the last criminal condemned here and the sentence will have to be executed by an executioner from Madrid Anthracite Operators Refuse to Make Concessions to Min Call Convention aiA March ubcomiuittee of the nutlaticlto mine workers and operators will hold au other meeting this afteruoou ajid eu to reach au agreement to go into ofteet at tlie expiration of the working arrangement between the men and their employers Phe flat refusal of the opemtqrs to muke any concessions has greatly de pressed the representatives of the miners While they expected tin operators would refuse to concede tbe Iiriucipul demands they did not ex pect them to make such u clean sweep of niltheir prppositions Tbe miners will today make their answer to tbe operators offer to re new the present agreement for three years 1resident Lewis of the miners union has not announced whathis an swer will be but It is not improbable that be will accept the operators they will L consent to make certain changes In tbe present working arrangement for which some of tuemiuersiirdifferent sections of the anthracite regions are clamoujny Make No Concessions Judging from the attitude taken by the operators some tmie ago which attitude has not been cbhnged by uroseUt negotiations It is not likely that the coal presidents will coucede the men much If this turns out to bo the case it is declared by the men that they will either call a convention of the anthra cite miners or call into session tbe international executive board of the union to decide upon the next step Tbe full committee of anthracite miners held aii executive session this morning in the hail of the central labor union in which President Lewis outlined to them bis plans for tills afteruoous conference Lewis IB Finn President was very much provoked today because the operators yesterday refused to receive him and wife wives be has the associates as officers of the United Mine Workers but merely as repre sentatives of the coal miners em ployed iu the mines owned by the former only agreement I will sign with tbe operators is as T L Lewis president of tbe hotly de clared Mr Lewis We will uot be divorced from the organization but will insist upon owr rights as men be continued Asked If he will make any other proposition to the operators in view of tbe rejection of tbe demands yes terday Mr Lewis said We will not qualify one of the de have made but will insist that everything we have asked for shall be granted Do you look for trouble In case the operators insist upon the rejection of your demands aud refuse to recog nize the union I am not predicting trouble looking for it All 1 have to say is that we will insists upon our demands and will niake our attitude very clear to the operators1 In view of tbe probable disagree ment of the conference today it may be stated positively that tbere willbe a convention of three district unions of the anthracite region the latter part of this month to consider tbe question of continuing work after the expiration of the present three years agreement on March 31 feelings Mr Mngulre would throw It in thV alrj nndisvich a scramble They would pull and tear to get a piece The next Sunday the success ful ones would
